Before I left for Europe, I went to Kirsten and Barnabas’s wedding. It was a very nice ceremony. Part of the ceremony was unintentionally amusing. Kirsten and Barnabas were attempting to light a unity candle with two individual candles. Unfortunately, the unity candle had a small wick problem. After a five to 10 minute struggle, the candle was lit and everyone applauded. The reception was at a Chinese restaurant. Unfortunately, I had to leave just after the third course. It was a full Chinese banquet, and there were going to be a lot of courses.

The day after I returned from Europe, Harlan and Kathleen got married in St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City. It was a 20-minute service that started promptly. They selected some great musical interludes, and I enjoyed the readings quite a bit as well. The reception was also in the church. The food was great.

After Harlan and Kathleen’s wedding, I walked around the city a bit with one of the other people from the wedding. It was mid-afternoon when we went our separate ways. I was trying to stay up and out until around 10 pm in order to get over my jet lag, so I went to Otto. I had a good time and enjoyed a little wine. I snapped a headless photo of Bill, one of the bartenders there.
