on a lighter note...
so, i got a pretty cool gig going right now. a woman i work with seems to think i'm the creative type, and she's asked me to create her wedding invitations. actually, her save the date cards, her invitations, her reception cards, her thank you cards...you get the picture. a few problems, though:
1. zero guidance. none, nada, zero, zip. not even so much as, "hey, i'd prefer a really traditional feel." nothing. i hate that! when i asked for some information, she said, "oh, just put some things together and we'll take it from there. whatever you think." whatever i think?! lady, i'm a bit of nut. not exactly your traditional-matrimony kinda gal. whatever i think?!? well...okay then.

2. self-doubt. of course! i love typography, and i love desktop publishing, and i love weddings (go figure), but, of course -- i'm just sure this is more than i can handle. *sigh*

3. moola. how much am i supposed to charge for something like this?? should i ask her just to pay for supplies and donate my time, looking at it as a learning experience? or, do i go ahead and choose some random, arbitrary number?

dammit, jim, this is supposed to be fun!

so, i was thinking last night...what if i'm really like e? what if i'm a manipulator, too? i mean, i think i have those tendencies. so, what if this is all about two sociopaths (or, alpha females if you'd prefer) locking horns, and i'm just determined to win? i mean, am i really that hurt by d's willingness to believe her lies? or am i more upset that i'm losing here, being beaten at what might just be my own game? ouch...self-examination hurts sometimes.

so, what the end game here? am i hoping that d suddenly leaps to his feet and says, "e, you're a liar and a manipulator, and i must divorce you because of the way you have treated my friends"?!?!? 'cause that's not gonna happen. plus, that would actually hurt d, so i'm not sure how much joy i'd get from that. but, right now, it seems that the situation is that d is just saying, "well, you know, yeah, it's pretty clear that e lied about you, and manipulated alot of my friends, but, you know...that's just the way she is. and, you know, she's my wife. so, uh...you know, that's just the way she is."

what am i supposed to do with that?! and again, what if it's not that the statement bothers me so much as it is that i'm losing the game. really...it's all too dramatic to bear.

okay, off to download fonts and ponder my sociopathic tendencies....
