I'd filter this if I remembered who I'd talked to about it. [Jul. 12th, 2010|08:58 am]

To those who might have been hoping to see me in New York in early October, I must tell you I will not be there. The family wedding I would have been attending has been postponed. Though I am not in close contact with either of the principals, I am given to understand that this is a question of logistics and practicality rather than of affection, so there ought to be no concerns raised on that front.

There may yet be an opportunity for me to attend their wedding in the greater New York area, or then again they may, for all I know, decide to get married with only their parents and a minister present (I am not the parent of either party, nor am I a minister of any kind, which is how you can tell me from skzbrust if you're in a hurry and can't think how else do so; also potentially useful information for telling me apart from people: I am shorter than jonsinger) or run off to Gretna Green or something else completely. Should I receive any information that seems directly relevant to getting together for dinner somewhere outside my usual run of dinner locations (Gretna Green, for example), I will be sure to let you know.

More later, but probably not about this, because I can't think what more I'd have to say about this. Except that I haven't previously wanted an icon of myself in Regency dress, but suddenly one seems appropriate due to my unexpected and bizarre fixation on Gretna Green. I expect if I lie down the feeling will pass, only it hasn't for several parties of my acquaintance, so I'm a bit worried on that score.

Of all the ways to tell you apart from skzbrust, that is not the first one which would come to mind. Nor the second. Nor the seventy-fourth.

Did you know there is a town in Louisiana which was deliberately (re)named after Gretna Green for advertising purposes, in order to try to convince people it was a good place to live? You won't find the story on its wikipedia page, but John Chase, who among other things was pretty much the only amateur historian of place names in the New Orleans area, writes about it in his book Frenchmen, Desire, Good Children.

It's true that you do sometimes wear glasses, so other ways of distinguishing you from Singer skzb and jonsinger are useful.
