A woman who writes feels too much,those trances and portents!
As if cycles and children and islands weren't enough;
as if mourners and gossips and vegetables were never enough.
She thinks she can warn the stars. A writer is essentially
a spy. Dear love,
I am that girl. --from THE BLACK ART by Anne Sexton

Tomorrow (30 September), it will have been nine months since
Alcuin and I went exclusive. On December 7 this year, 7 days shy
of a year since the day we first met in Starbucks, we are going to
get married!

Tomorrow, nine months since we first started dating exclusively,
I will be talking to the dressmaker about my wedding gown. If I
had all the money in the world, I will pick Monique Lhuillier. No,
not because she did Britney Spears' gown, but because I like her
style. But unfortunately, my fiance is not rich, and my father, even
if he had to pay for my gown (as is the custom in the US), doesn't
make enough money out of his rice dealership to afford Lhuillier.
So, I have to be creative and make do with Php 5,000, tops. Let's
see if I can swing a deal for the dressmaker to throw some
beadwork in. If I can pull this off, I think i might even consider
designing wedding dresses as a career option--hmm.
