Today in Facebook Stalking: Friends of Friends Weddings
I've entered my late twenties, this means people who orbit my circle of friends are within the late 20s to mid 30s bracket. This bracket should be called the "Let's Shack Up" Bracket. Seems like the world is either makn' babies or getn' hitched. It's extremely fascinating, to watch my once lone wolf friends slowly splinter off into their own family units.
I do all my watching through Facebook.
I have friends who have children, friends who are very pregnant, and friends who are adequately pregnant. Due to this, my news feed is cluttered with snotty children pictures, sticky mess face toddler pictures, wild eyeball baby pictures, and grainy ultra sounds. I sound grumpy, but I do enjoy these snippets of other people's lives. Yet, after while they all begin to vaguely look the same, because you know... babies are cute.
Now, the getn' hitched portion of these family makers is more interesting... Just today I perused through two separate weddings that my 'friends' (I use this term loosely) attended. One was some wooded nymph Renaissance ditty while the other was your soft focus vineyard affair. I'm not going to judge or compare- because the basics were there: happy bride & groom, drunken dancing, and flowers up in every nook and cranny. It's funny that after creeping through so many wildly different wedding on Facebook you notice a pattern: All of us out there just love to have a good time.
