My career in passwords

Resign12 - I quit
Theroc12 - Wrestling's the Rock influenced this one, I have no idea why. Might be due to Southland Tales being seen in the HMV sale
Hestap12 - Hesta Pryn from the hottest girl rappers the world has ever seen - Northern State
Yogaba12 - Don't know what this word is. Perhaps wii fit/yoga related?
Tegans12 - Going to the Tegan and Sara gig
Howard12 - Went to the Russell Howard gig. He was much funnier than Simon Amstell

Pipete12 - We must have been to see the Pipette's around then. I'm not a fan of Rosay and Riot Becki's replacements. Sure they may be brunette's, but they're more leggings in TopShop brunettes rather than Cardigans in TopShop brunettes
Stefyr12 - Yes, we must have as Stefy was supporting. Went off her when I realised she had a tattoo
Tomnok12 - Named after the evil overlord of Animal Crossing

Nusuck12 - But offset it having a quiet moan about work. That's sticking it to the man!
Portman12 - I think I'd been to see Closer with Freya. Didn't make either of us feel very good

Stirli12 - Daughter of Diana Rigg. I actually fell for Rachael when she photgraphed in the Daily Express, well before Tipping The Velvet

Amusing Wedding Story Number Two

As listeners to the Adam & Joe show on BBC Radio Six will know, one of their catchphrases is "I'm going to have a party Pom Pom, it's going to be a Poo Poo Party Pom Pom". Myself and Freya have been using it for a while and have been finding it rather amusing.

We decided to write our own wedding vows to make it memorable and also for me to finally have something to do regarding the wedding. However, I soon noticed that this meant I would have to write something that was meaningful and, as readers of this blog have found out, my writing is totally rubbish.

Luckily I had an afternoon to go to my dentist (star of the Awful Wedding Story - coming soon!) and spent a nice sunny May day in Harrogate's Valley Gardens racking my brains of good vow words. Eventually I had something figured out. It didn't sound cheesy, it didn't sound over the top, it sounded exactly how I felt about Freya.

And then I added a line asking if Freya wanted a Poo Poo Party Pom Pom?

Wedding Vows

I managed to memorise the vow, but thought I'd best take the piece of paper I'd written on along in case I had an attack of brain nerves.

On the day of the wedding I had to meet the registrar and state that I was marrying Freya for the right reasons and other official things. Then she asked if I had my vows. I said I did and reluctantly handed over the paper. The registrar seemed a very officious person and didn't seem like someone who would appreciate the humour in my words. Luckily my brother did and started giggling uncontrollably. Which then started me off. Which made the registrar more po-faced.

Luckily she decided that we were ok to get married (I suspect she realised that Freya already knew I was an idiot but still liked me) and the ceremony went ahead without any problems. Well, apart from the other two Amusing Wedding Stories and the Awful Wedding Story.
