Esther and Wes' wedding / banquet, hanging with Andrea, brain pattern
Afterwards, Andrea and I had some curry fishballs and spicy Korean noodles at Yaohan before going around the mall for a while. We bought some chewy lemon candy and some green tea Pocky... I saw some Canada Pretz at T&T too! (I'll save some Pocky for the next time a certain person comes over, hahaha) We also bumped into our friend Irene and her mom, who were out pillow shopping: good thing Irene's back is kinda getting better from that long-ago car accident, although she IS trying to wean herself off sleeping pills. Afterwards, we went to my place for a scant few minutes so I could retrieve my wedding present.. yes, I made her sign the blue guestbook. ;) It had started drizzling by the time we left the mall, but at least God provided nice weather for the ceremony itself! We went to Andrea's place for a while to chill, after picking up some Fig Newtons from IGA. I watched Listed (the top 20 artists of the 1970s) and Motormouth on MuchMoreMusic... the latter is so hilarious, since it involves people singing in their cars without knowing they're being recorded. I should watch more stuff on Channel 35, yo! :D
We wrapped our gifts and talked a bit to Andrea's boyfriend Chuck by phone, then left after telling Andrea's brother Sherman goodbye. It was weird having a wedding banquet in a Metropolis / Metrotown restaurant... Fortune Garden is just as cool as the Sutton Place Hotel, where Anita and Jeff had their banquet in June. I talked to Frances, Daniel, Michelle, both Helens, Joe, Danny, Sophia, Brenda, Sarah, Vernon, and a few other people about pregnancy / fatherhood / cars / the music at the banquet (Chinese music, Brian McKnight, All-4-One, PM Dawn, 4 PM, Boyz II Men, etc.) / Auntie Cynthia and Auntie Tracy taking over for Frances at the toddler Sunday School (I'll still be around to help out, of course) / Awana coming up VERY soon (this Saturday... eek!) / Seal, Elton John, and the Backstreet Boys performing because they spent all their money already (on outfits, glasses, and such) / Hawaii trips (Elaine, luaus, and Diamond Head!) / babies / life / that perfidious blackguard Yazmine not being suited for me in friendship / other things.
The funniest table story of the night had to go to Joe: Erin's travelling in Europe right now, and she met this couple on her trip. The husband asked Erin whether she was an Eskimo, whereupon his wife got mad at him for possibly offending her... then she asked Erin whether she was an Inuit! Hahahaha... the Erin stories never stop even when she's not here! The runner-up for funny stuff HAD to be the waiter putting a crab claw in front of Vernon, who's ALLERGIC TO SHELLFISH! Of course, the waiter had no way of knowing that, but it was funny nonetheless. Vernon gave it to Sarah, who then gave it to Danny... he tried passing it on to me, but I was good for crab claws. ;)
The banquet was also pretty quick once it actually got started: two dishes at a time, three dishes at a time there... man, we were all stuffed by the time it was over at 10! All the speeches were nice... Wes is quiet, but I know he has a good heart. (they're both into sports and working out!) The slide show was pretty cool, and the "Esther and Wes" quiz game was hilarious! But then one of the "Lily and Lee" games was funny too... everyone dinged for Esther and Wes to kiss, but then one table had to come up and catch toast coming out of the toaster using just their shoulders! Frances, Karen, and Stella sustained very minor injuries... but Chung Yan and Karen were able to do it. Since Lily and Lee had to get rid of the toast and toaster, the former went to the couple who was married for a month, and the latter went to the couple who'd been married 50 years! Good times indeed. :D Now Sabrina's the only single sister out of the three... at 21, that should be the case! (just like Elaine's the only single sibling out of her four!)
(I really ought to confirm various plans with Sam and Chinese Eric tomorrow... eeep! Chinese Eric's just come online: 5-6 on Monday is just fine with me, since it's the last day we can possibly go to the PNE this year!)
Now Corey's trying to tell me that I'm full of it... riiiiiiiiiiiight. :P
