Wedding bells.

We wanted share with everyone that our good friends Thom and Christina got married today in Anchorage, AK. Sadly, we couldn't make it to the festivities, but we decided not to let that stop us.

Welcome...(drum roll)...Mr. Thom and Christina Stanley. Uhh, I'm assuming she took his last name. If she didn't then it's Thom Stanley and Christina Newell. Or maybe it's Christina Newell-Stanley? Regardless, the important thing to remember is that today, this evening, these two young lovers decided to commit the rest of their lives to each other. Through sickness and health, good times and bad, blah blah blah, let's get to the party!

So, we would now like to encourage everyone not able to share in their special day in person to celebrate. That's right, go grab a glass, fill it up with whatever alcohol you can find (I'd avoid the antifreeze), and join us in a toast to the new bride and groom! Strangers are more than welcome to participate - Thom and Christina are very friendly and support anyone drinking at any time for any reason, especially to celebrate their wedding. Think of it as an oppportunity to crash a party via the internet! Exciting stuff.

With no further ado, Here's to Thom and Christina!

Abby and I are celebrating in style. Since we're in the Honeymoon capital of India, we decided that we should get into the spirit of things and we rented the honeymoon suite. Round bed, champagne, the works. Of course, it's all for the new couple. Wink wink.

What can I say - it wasn't our first toast of the night. We tried to find some party favours, but were unsuccessful. Instead, we decided to take the money we saved by not buying decorations and get another beer. And then another. Congrats, Thom and Christina!

Hey, is that India Pale Ale you guys are drinking?

Sadly, no. It's a Kingfisher, the common lager found in India. It' I won't be bringing home a case, but it's plenty good here. The reason the beer looks so bright is because we infused it with some of our spark for life. Looks magical, no?
