He's everywhere. (Read to the bottom comment.) I'm guessing Puppy Beater is Mongo or Cathy.

When Tim took the pictures to work there was a lot of whispering going on in the background when he was showing off the album. Someone finally admitted they thought the best man looked "awfully effeminate."

Trey's new favorite spot:



A couple months back that planter was full of tulips.

I want a show of hands - who has ever been to a wedding where *all* the male guests wore black tie?

Sorry, "black tie preferred" is just a tactic to get people to stop wearing jeans to weddings.



In the 1980s, I went to a few black tie weddings and many parties. I think it would be harder to pull it off now.

I know this was a classic thread here at one point. It's funny, Ibut I used to care very much. Now I have other things on my mind, but Black Tie also means you can wear a dark business suit. You'd probably feel more comfortable in a tux but it's considered ok. But this is where Omni and I went round and round. Since Black Tie means you have the option of wearing a suit, Black Tie Optional is meaningless. She insisted Black Tie means only Black Tie. I still think I'm right but the realities of modern life (which I avoid a lot) mean that Black Tie Optional is code for "Please don't dress like a pig on my big day!"

Well, men have it pretty easy: wear either a dark suit or a tux. There's no easy solution for women.


I don't know. I had a helluva time with the buttons and cufflinks when I was best man for my brother Tim's wedding.

I went to see this last Monday night and I've been thinking about it since and at first I thought the soundtrack was a little distracting, but after thinking about on it all week, I think I liked it.

I had one major peeve with a cameo appearance and other than that, I really enjoyed it, didn't mind paying full price to see it, and came home and recommended it to my avid movie-going friends.

As for the violence/blood/guts, etc, there was a lot of chuckling going on in the audience throughout. I don't think it you're actually pushing the envelope with the shock and awe of something new that people would chuckle. So, agreed that there wasn't anything new on that front. I think the soundtrack was more interesting than the violence factor and perhaps "Kelly's Heroes" or "MASH" were equally inventive in that respect.
