My Best Freind's Wedding

Tom and I flew down on June 4th to LA for my best friend phinny's wedding. I was incredibly stressed out because I was in the wedding and was giving a speech during the ceremony. I was also stressed over trying to organize the Bachelors party despite the fact that it was starting before I even landed at an hour away from where it was being held. I'm so glad Kirsten, Melanie and Wendi were able to take care of everything for me. Poor Phinny his bachelor party was thrown by two lesbian, a prissy girl and a homo. The Party was great; here is a picture of me and Fatty Patty in the pool as photographic evidence.

We spent the night at Kirsten's house and the next day had to make our way to Malibu for the wedding rehearsal. I've been to wedding rehearsals and they are normally a small affair with core family and friends, this wedding rehearsal lunch was 80 people. We split ourselves into two cars forming a caravan for the trip to the rehearsal. As is usual with our group of friends we were late, Tom and I are rarely late so this was stressing me out as well as the thought of rehearsing in front of 80 people who were not actually needing to rehearse. The traffic on the 101 freeway was horrible something I just couldn't understand for 11am on a saturday.
I was driving my dad's car and following Wendi a motorcyclist starting driving in the lane next to me. the cars in front of the cyclist began to slow so he lane split sharing the lane with me but I didn't really see him when he started to do this as he and his female passenger were in my blind spot right next to me. As he began to speed up I became aware of him and he scared the crap out of me, I jerked the wheel in surprise and it looked like he was going to hit my side mirror. I started cusing at him for scaring me and not knowing how to drive a motorcycle. All of a sudden all the traffic in both lanes stopped. The motorcyclist stopped lane splitting and moved to the other side of his lane away from me... walking his motorcycle. I asked Tom what the asshole was doing as stopped traffic was the perfect time to lane-split. His passenger threw a hand in the air flipping off... I have no idea, the general direction of in front of her.
For the next ten or so minutes the motorcycle paced us as the traffic would start moving then stop suddenly, I was worried several times the people behind me would crash into me. Then Tom's phone rang, it was Kirsten, Wendi had some asshole a few cars in front of her who kept stopping his car to take pictures, and Wendi realized the person was taking pictures of the motorcyclist and decided to get a better look. Yes the damn Paparazzi were almost causing accidents and killing people let alone the traffic to get a picture of George Clooney. I firmly believe the Paparazzi should be fine a million dollars if they cause an accident while trying to get a shot. Since I was driving and not an asshole trying to steer and use a camera at the same time, there is no photographic evidence.
The rehearsal lunch went well but immediately afterwards I had another rehearsal to attend. It had been decided that Phinny's friends were doing a Beatles musical number ala Glee. I have fear of my own voice and don't sing, But I figured since I was basically chorus I could force myself. This was a good thing to push myself on. When I get a copy of the video I'll post it here. I did a good job and it was a great success. I did a lot better than I thought I would at singing and speeches alike. I was so glad when the wedding was over, and I didn't have to worry about ruining anything on Phinny and Andrea's big day.

That picture of you and Fatty Patty is so disturbing and I don't know why. :D

You should have run Clooney off the road.

I thought the traffic in LA was always fucked up. Anyway, I'm glad you made it through without killing anyone since the pa-pa-paparazzi definitely have it coming.
