Over labor day weekend I had the great honor and privilege of attending one of the most incredible weddings I have ever experienced. My dear friend S, married her college sweetheart K. I made it through the ceremony without shedding a tear so I thought I was golden. Nope. For some reason I got choked up during their first dance. Then the Maid of Honor gave the best toast in the history of wedding toasts, complete with singing, which seriously had me tearing up and laughing all at the same time. And then I just totally lost it when they played their same day edit video. I had never seen that done before, but it was the highlight of the whole night for me. The most incredible feeling is watching two friends be so happy together, second only to holding babies. What most set this wedding apart from any other was that it was all about making the experience wonderful for the guests.
And if S ever reads this post . . .

My prosopagnosia prevents me from having all the celeb sighting of the average New Yorker. Tonight I really impressed myself. While reading outside at a table in the flatiron district during my break I recognized Laverne Cox from Orange is the New Black. She was enjoying some Starbucks with one friend at first and then another showed up and they were all very tall and striking. She is prettier in person which makes totally makes sense given that her character is incarcerated. I bet I'm sitting next to actresses and singers all the time and never notice. Maybe I was just more alert because I recently started watching Orange is the New Black with C and we are really getting into it. The background stories of the women are the most interesting part for me. I could do without the crudeness, but hey, it does take place in a prison so I'm just being my sheltered puritanical self as usual. Don't mind me.
