Name Change Update

I wrote an (amusing-to-me) post about name changes and The Walkoffs. I think I also posted a link to an article about how hard and expensive it is for a same-sex couple to change names, or for the guy in a traditional male-female couple if he wants to take his wife's name.

Here's an update on that: Names, California Style

And the .02 of those from around the Bay Area: Would you take your wife's name?

Practical, inexpensive, reusable & recyclable: The Toilet Paper Dress

Alas, many of you (okay the three of you that read this blog) are probably aware of the shower game that surely has a cute real name but which I always think of as "Time to TP the Bride(s)" in which you make a wedding dress out of TP for the guest of honor.

Here are the winners for the 2006 Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest. (2007 is currently open.)

Too bad T. already bought her dress...It's a shame we weren't aware of this ecological and economical alternative! Heck, you could even go organic for a few bucks more. Plus, if people cried at the wedding you could slowly undress (thus saving time when you go to change to leave) as you helped them out with some tissue.
