...we'll share this lifetime, you and I...

This was Abbzug and I exactly two years ago this minute.

In case it isn't obvious, today is my second wedding anniversary. And for that reason, I'm going to make this brief.

I know I've been a blog slacker the past few days (while others have been posting up a storm), but between business trips, anniversary activities and the beginning of Extreme Makeover: Yard Edition, writing had to a back seat. Nevertheless, I want to pass on a few links.

First, a new blog has bubbled to the surface: Columbia Talk, written by Dan Beyers, who actually writes for a living (well, how about that?). Welcome to our strange universe, Dan.

Second, Bill Santos writes so I don't have to. Honestly, at this point, I'm just trying to look ahead.

Finally, since weddings are on the brain, Slate has a great piece about the racket that is the wedding business and how easy it is to get caught up in all the spending. As much as I didn't want to spend a lot on our wedding (relatively speaking), I'm glad we didn't cheap-out on the important things -- mainly, the location and food. That said, we are fortunate to have very talented siblings and friends, whose contributions to our nuptials made the day truly special... and a little bit cheaper.

OK, enough with the mush. Blogging time is up.

Happy Anniversary. Thank goodness I’m happily married. What ya call a middle-aged writer and artist without a significant other? Homeless. Here’s to many more happy years. Kevin Dayhoff
