Biggest regret, not calling in my own wedding, wedding story. Fast forward to CP in her wedding dress in the pool with all her best male friends in front of his grandma who disapproved if me keeping my name. My parents were cool about it though
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/15/16 7:09pm Marcel M:

@Aarron: I just texted Frangry, you won dude! Send her an email with your address and size. They just forgot to announce it :-)

It was a pretty fun night Robyn! My idiot friends got me too drunk so the ending is mad blurry. During my dance with my mother I was so out of it haha.. must have looked insane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/15/16 7:15pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Well lets see how this screamong contest goes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/15/16 7:16pm Marcel M:

My wife took my name. It was her choice I wasn't expecting it and would have been fine otherwise. Its funny tho cuz she gets shit sometimes from people for doing that. Timez change things re-arrange.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/15/16 7:16pm Marcel M:

Is the screaming contest next week? I have a kind of crazy idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/15/16 7:16pm Cheri Pi:

Marcel I'm sure everyone else was out of it by that time, too. I'm glad to know you were riding high, I hate that moment when you realize how much more sober the bride/groom are (if they are).. so embarrassing !

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 4/17/16 4:11pm fred:

Thanks Billy, plenty of great stuff as usual. Was that DJ ALF at the very end of the show, after Debbie Deb? That sounded quite unlikely to have been part of a 1983 single
