August 23, 2003: Today is Eric and Amanda’s Wedding

I actually managed to get up early this morning, around 7:30. Only five hours of sleep. Min got in from Amanda’s party at Patti’s in Warsaw around 12:30 and went straight to bed. But it is almost 9:00 as I write this and she is still asleep as is Andy. Pete and Eric had to be down to Warsaw to set up chairs for the ceremony today at 8:00 this morning. That seems awfully early. Drew had to be at work at 6:00 am so he got basically no sleep at all, but he is young, no big deal for him.

Eric said that Access-4-Free’s Windows Dialing program is no good anymore and it can damage your computer. As far as I can tell from the web site, they still allow direct dialing without having to use that program. If so, they are still fine to use, just don’t download the program. If not, though, you will have to avoid them just like everyone else. Why can’t anyone make a good service and just leave well enough alone?

I was looking around at some of our websites today and it looks like NYSED.net has disappeared. Tim must have decided that it just wasn’t worth maintaining that site any longer. It hadn’t been updated in forever. None of us have heard from Tim in a while. Maybe he will email us soon as let us know how things are going.

By midday, Andy, Min and I were running around like mad trying to get everything taken care of for the wedding. It wouldn’t have been nearly so hectic if this wasn’t the first weekend of the students being back at Geneseo. The streets were packed with traffic going in every direction. We had to drive way out of the way to go anywhere.

We made it to the wedding just in time. It was everything that we could do just to be able to be there. We were really lucky that we didn’t miss it altogether.

The wedding was really nice. They did it outside by the village park in Warsaw. The weather was perfect – cool and bright.

They did an informal reception at the fireman’s pavilion by the park. They had a ton of food. It was nice to have a less formal reception because it really gave you the chance to walk around and talk to everyone.
