My dog is going to be on the Today show
Now that I'm married, I can now say I have a dog named Kitai.
Kitai is going to be on NBC's Today Show on Wednesday, October 31, in his Halloween costume. I expect you'll be able to see my new bride Stacie on TV too. The show is flying Stacie and Kitai to New York to appear live.
I'm kinda bummed at the thought that my dog may become more famous than me. I don't recall him inventing any iPods.

I moved my web site to DreamHost. I used to run my own server in my house, but there were too many problem with my DSL being down or something needing to be restarted. My friend Keith had recently moved from a home server to Dreamhost as well, so I thought I would give it a try.
It's been reasonably smooth, with some of the only problems being that my blog software was using an older version of PHP, and exporting and importing my mySQL databases.

I invented new iPods
Look at these cool iPods I just invented:
They're real cool. They play video, and have a groovy new UI.

Voicemail from "Ron"
"Ron" (not his real name) was coming to meet me for lunch. He called and left a voicemail to say he was nearby. Something happened in the car when he was leaving the message:

Photographer and Invitations
A couple months ago we hired our wedding photographer. My fiance Stacie showed me the web sites of several photographers she knew were good and got me to pick one. I picked Todd Rafalovich. The work on his web site looked quite fantastic. We met with him on a Saturday morning, and signed up right away.
Now that everyone has had time to get their Save The Date magnets and hang them on their fridge (where it will stay for the next 30 years), we've gotten cracking on the invitations. Stacie has been busy designing them, and we hope to have them done and in the mail next week. It's been smooth sailing, except for the debates we've had over the spelling of Whores De Ooveres and whether the address of the wedding should be on the invitation.

Save The Date cards
Now that we've picked a date, the next thing to do as soon as possible is send out Save The Date cards.
I didn't know about these. I thought you just sent out invitations a couple months before the wedding, and that's how people knew when the wedding was supposed to be. Apparently, people need more advance notice. I thought, why not just send out the invitations sooner then? But I'm told that's not how it's done. There's no logic to it. Apparently, people need warning that an invitation will be coming. I don't recall ever getting a Save The Date card for any wedding I've ever been invited to. Maybe I've always been a last-minute invite when someone else cancelled.
Anyways, this was pretty easy. I typed Save The Date into Google. I got back many results. I clicked on one of the first results, and there was an online store that had about 45 different designs to choose from. I got excited when I saw that some were magnets, and I declared that our Save The Date must be a fridge magnet. If I got a paper Save The Date card in the mail, it would hit the recycling bin rather soon. But a fridge magnet - that'll stay on my fridge for the next 30 years!
Stacie is also a graphic designer, so she spent some time designing our magnets. But of course, this is the New Millennium, so every wedding has to have a URL. So when we register the URL, we can complete the magnets, and send them out.
If you're one of those couples without a graphic designer between the 2 of you, then you can use one of the online templates and have your magnets ordered inside of 20 minutes.
