That's *Mr.* Baxil to you|lysana
beat us all on the wedding updates when she weighed in by phone post here
from down at the river. My new wife sums up here
And this just about sums it all up:
(More wedding pics to come as we actually get them organized and -- in some cases -- developed.)
We're not done yet, not by a long shot. A few hours of down time, and then we'll all retire to a celebratory dinner over at the Five Mile House restaurant. Then back to the flat for a good ol' fashioned New Year's Eve party with happy wedding overtones.
And then, in February, we do it all over again. This was simply the small, private we're-doing-it-for-us day; the wedding reception
and renewal of vows will be in late February. Details to follow later on the Bax-and-Kady-are-married-party; we'll have to take a week or two to get our feet back underneath us.
In case you have to make any reservations or travel arrangements, it will be Sunday, Feb. 26, here in beautiful Gass Valley/Nevada City, CA.
Current Mood: married
Current Music: Johnny Cash, "Ring of Fire"
Congratulations, mate. To both of you!

For some reason, this still makes me grin every time I read it. :)
Thank you for the good wishes, and great to hear you had a New Year's full of revelry! (Hope the hangover wasn't too ugly ...)

Hey, Baxil. Are you there? I'd like to know: science or magic?
Also, there's something that I was thinking about while driving, and feeling as though you, or at least your personality, was very close. If I had been there to help you spell it, I would have suggested "Bakhil". But I guess you liked the crossroads of the 'x' better than the Celtic sound of the 'kh'.
And on an aside, one that's not completely unrelated (although the connection is more a metaphorical, than a factual one): why do most people believe that it's impossible to look at the sun? I did it for, I don't know, six or seven seconds today, before my eyes started to hurt.

Hi! Good to hear from you again -- and thank you for breaking your comment rule to congratulate me on the wedding. :) That meant a lot.> science or magic?
... Not to be flip, but, "yes." The world would be a poorer place without either. And which I trust more depends on what I'm looking at. If this answer seems like a cop-out, then you probably wanted to ask a question with a lengthier answer. ;)> If I had been there to help you spell it, I would have suggested "Bakhil". But I guess you liked the crossroads of the 'x' better than the Celtic sound of the 'kh'.
Your suggestion is well-taken, considering that that's pretty much how I tell people to pronounce it! Certainly, that would have removed a great deal of the ambiguity and error.
However, I've got Greek linguistic background -- and ancestry -- and the sound that most closely leapt to mind was the Greek letter chi
, which is written "x." It stuck in my brain and seemed a little more textually elegant.> why do most people believe that it's impossible to look at the sun? I did it for, I don't know, six or seven seconds today, before my eyes started to hurt.
I don't know that I've ever heard anyone say it was "impossible." What I always hear is "don't," because direct sunlight viewing can cause permanent retinal damage
According to the article, "[Intense light] triggers a series of complex chemical reactions within the cells which damages their ability to respond to a visual stimulus, and in extreme cases, can destroy them. ... The danger to vision is significant because photic retinal injuries occur without any feeling of pain (there are no pain receptors in the retina), and the visual effects do not occur for at least several hours after the damage is done." So please, as one friend to another, lay off the sun-staring experiments?

*yawns* Please pardon me for being muzzy right now.
You're welcome about the comment thing... although I don't seem to be good at staying within self-imposed limitation.
... Not to be flip, but, "yes.
Pardon me my mischievousness, but I was asking whether the world should have both; rather, I was asking which you preferred. Not being a mage myself, I can't say for sure, but I don't think you can have both. :>
Your explanation of the sound remains me of how I've occasionally vacillated between "Lhexa" and "Llecsa". The "lh" sound is a Welsh one, but I didn't want a Welsh name. :P
So please, as one friend to another, lay off the sun-staring experiments?
Well, thanks for the advice, but I've been doing it in bits and pieces for my entire life. What I like about staring into any bright light, is the halos that appear around them, the sun not excepted. The light might be bright and all, but it's the halo that's beautiful.
(On an aside, I believe a certain conflict within me has been resolved, on the side of "friend". I had been vacillating between "acquaintance" and "friend", when it came to you.)

Er, that should be "...any bright light, the sun not expected, is the halos..." rather than what I ended up writing.
