Or, at least, that seems to be what I managed to do with this blog yesterday.
Most of you probably remember this post about the Wedding Gown From Hades. Almost three hundred English Pounds ended up in recycling and not in my wedding photographs. The jacket and gown I actually ended up wearing both came from Amazon – complete with gold wrapping paper, ribbons and a lollipop in the case of the gown! The entire outfit – including shoes – cost me less than £100 altogether and was a complete showstopper. So much so, in fact, that our best man’s (lovely) wife has been inspired to buy a scarlet ball gown (and she’s very pretty with long jet-black hair so she will look quite astonishing in it).
For some reason my friend Sarah got more confetti on herself than she did on me. My dear mother-in-law went all-out and emptied an entire box into my cleavage! Thanks to the wonders of the internet (and a few friends who are old enough to know better and young enough not to care!) I probably have the most famous Weapons Of Mass Distraction© in the city of Chelmsford by now.
Anyway, back to the point…
Yesterday, someone somewhere stumbled across that blog post during an online search. Better yet, they stopped to read it! The distress that I experienced because of that particular online shopping debacle has saved somebody else from the same heartache and expense.
A few simple words typed on a screen and published to the internet is all it took. I will never meet the bride (I am assuming it was the bride who was searching) who stopped by my blog, but I am glad that she found me and that I saved her a whole heap of trouble and expense.
It’s the little things that make me happy. Just making a tiny difference in the life of a stranger gives me the warm fuzzies inside.
So does Absinthe, actually, but that’s a whole other story and I have a hangover. Let’s just say that Absinthe is a pretty colour and it tastes good and it makes you feel fluffy.
(Very Important Side Note about Absinthe: If you have epilepsy it must be drunk with care and you should have no more than three. Two ought to be enough to knock out a Brontosaurus anyway – I certainly don’t remember falling asleep on the sofa or going to bed!)
I am in no way an Absinthe connoisseur, but if anybody happens to be interested I have studied its history and know of several different methods of mixing/drinking it. I also have most of the proper paraphernalia to go with it.
No wonder Byron was completely bonkers. I’d still like to find his complete works – Kindle edition – though. The man was a genius.
