Okay, so first off I suppose I should explain the title of my blog. I know it's a total rip-off from Grey's Anatomy, but the word just happens to pop up so often in my life. Por ejemplo, I'm in the midst of planning my dream-wedding and preparing to enter med school. So, of course instead of studying my hardback copy of Gray's Anatomy (the book, for those of you who think it's just a show), I instead find myself looking at photographers' wedding portfolios online. Whilst browsing through the typical mediocre cheesy shots, I can't help but notice the bride's bouquet has one random red rose sticking out to the side. The rest of the bouquet is composed of beautiful white roses. Then there's this red rose - just sticking out!!! It's just befuddling. It caused my roommate and I to burst out in a chorus of "Seriously?" and "Why?" I'm going to feel really badly if I find out it's some sort of tribute to a dead grandparent or something like that. But seriously, whose grandmother would want to be paid tribute to in that way? Whatever though... It's her wedding and she can do whatever the hell she wants.
My wedding on the other hand will not include random works of floristry (not actually sure that's a word, but it should be). The date is June 7, 2008 and so far I've accomplished 2 major planning points.
1. The bridesmaid dresses are with their respective owners and paid for.
2. The wedding dress is hanging in a protective bag on the back of my bedroom door.

Hopefully by next month I'll have at least 5 more things accomplished, but I'm not holding my breath. Anyway, I hope I can keep this blog thing going after med school starts. I'm sure I will have plenty more moments that deserve a "Seriously?"
