So as the title suggests, I just found out that one of my best friends is getting married in November, and it got me thinking about a few things, one of which being what I should get him & the future mrs as a wedding gift. Now, I know that money's always good for obvious reasons, but I'm thinking that maybe something funny would be good along with it, especially given that we've been friends since pretty much our 1st day of high school. Also on the subject of cheddar, how much do people usually give these days anyway? I know he's not gonna expect too much (especially since neither of us are loaded & since he knows I'll have to fly over during the weekend just to make it there at all), but I don't wanna seem like a cheap ass when I go to something that's probably gonna cost a lot more than it needs to as it is. I'm gonna see if he's planning to set up a wedding registry somewhere (as it would simplify things quite a bit for both him & the guests), but that makes me think of another point, and namely how disconnected I've become from most (if not all) of the people I grew up with. I'm sure that most of us have gone through this at some point, and while online stuff definitely makes it easier, it's just not the same once you've been away for a few years. I mean, if I was still living in Saskatoon, I wouldn't have needed to come anywhere close to hearing about his wedding through a facebook invite, and I'd probably even be helping him with things as we speak instead of making a thread about it on here hah. ... and yeah, I wasn't planning on typing much, but it seemed like something worth discussing, so here we go.
