Taking that plunge.

Long time reader Mishmash of Miscellanea went ahead and got married. Go on over and wish he and C. well. Bet there's new his and hers pistols in their future.

As I've said., I have no desire to get married again.

But IF I did. . I'd want this cake.h/t Cake Wrecks


  1. I love it! In fact, there's nothing wrong with MOST wedding receptions that a little explosion wouldn't improve ... or maybe it's just me.

    Okay, so I'm not your average preacher.

    I wonder what would happen if you mixed the "chicken dance" and hand grenades ... hmmm.

  2. Looks like my reception about an hour before it was over!

  3. If I were to ever get marred, I want a cake like that too!

  4. Oh, that wedding cake is spectacular!

    Now I just have to find a (wedding-free) excuse to make a similar one! know, if I used marbled frosting on dark chocolate and red velvet cakes, and borrowed some miniatures, that would be an awesome recreation of the last time we tried "return to the temple of elemental evil." Hah! Thank you! I have a plan to set in motion!

  5. My goodness, but I do like the way you think.


  6. I think a wedding reception that matched up with that cake would be a BLAST!

  7. Yeah, but you should have seen the bar bill!
    Come to think of it....that cake would have been more appropriate for the divorce.....

  8. Hahaha!!! That is great - I love it.

  9. Don't 'wave-off' on marriage! Just marry the right person...

  10. I plan on dying at the age of 80, shot by a jealous husband!

  11. "My plans? Stay single. . live to be 98. Lethal naked Jet ski accident after winning steel plate shoot out and eating a Denver Omelet, and home fries with a pot of coffee chaser."

    Freak JetSki accident today at Lake Geritol. Film at 11.

    The idea is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body but to slide in sideways and yell, Wow! What a ride!

    (or something to that effect)

    I'll most likely miss that event since I already border on ancient but good luck with it!

  12. We had Mr. & Mrs. Tasmanian Devil cake toppers, salt and pepper shakers from the WB store.

    On balance, the marriage/kidlet thing has been a positive experience for us, but it is a lot of work.

    The spouse occasionally teases about having her replacement picked out should something bad happen. My response is always the same, a variation of "Her? She wouldn't last a week at our house. Keep looking."

    Mrs. Roscoe cooks and stiches me up after home improvement accidents. I run the home IT services (we put most small corporations to shame) and keep the house/yard up. The arrangement works, but I'm not exactly thrilled about wearing the maid uniform. :)

  13. Sounds like you have developed the perfect exit strategy. The only thing I'd add to the departure would be an overindulgence in adult beverages ongoing at the same time...

  14. Thanks Brigid, We both LOOOVE that cake :)

    Hmmm Naked Jetski accident.....the mind boggles. :) Of course when I was younger several of my Jetski accidents left me sans suit...something about skipping across the waters surface at high speed.....but I digress ;)

    Thanks again for the great post Brigid and the well wishes everyone.

  15. Oh forgot to mention there is a new Sig P220 Elite in my wedding gifts, C opted for a new highend GPS unit.

  16. Maybe someone you feel right about will come along. Being alone when you are old would not be a fun thing.

  17. Love that cake!

    My SIL made the wedding cake when he married our daughter...

    entirely made of NY Style cheese cake!

    Three layers tall. About 1/2 way through the reception, the middle layer started to thaw and we had to take it apart before it collapsed. They just had their 12th anniversary last month.

  18. Only 98? My plan is 104 then decide how much longer I need to see all I want to see of this planet. Could be a bit of a problem as I already want t see enough to fill about 3 lifetimes!
    The way out? out of sight of land huge storm raging, ideally somewhere off Cape Horn.

    "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride!'"-Hunter S. Thompson

  19. I'd rather have a huge cherry cheesecake and time to eat some--those formal wedding receptions are a bit too hectic.

    Brigid, I think sacred unions such as marriage are forged by God. When us human get to monkeying around from a lack of faith or conflicting wants, that's when relationships don't pan out. I tried to match myself once, and it was a train wreck. I said never again to marriage after that.

    Now, I've just entered into the 18th year of marriage to Marti. God has everything to do with it, although we just don't know exactly how. No doubt others have different opinions. That's fine.

    I like to read about your parents' life together. It's some of your strongest stuff.

  20. My plan is to be whatever age it happens to be when the Cape wins the match.

    --moffie jag dinge dat kan nie ook vermoor

    or something... :-)

  21. I've failed at everything else, why not give marriage a chance, I say... almost. Probably just one learns ya, I suppose. T'aint no man who's caught me yet, though!

  22. Finding the right woman is the key, I did and 27 years later have no regets.
