I prefer whichever plan it is in which you guys let me win.

That good old plan B. Now in what situation did we need plan B earlier? I've got it on the tip of my tongue...I hate it that I can't remember things anymore.

Anyway, wedding plans! I've bought a dress so any day is fine with me. Just let me get the facts straight. Is it Mel who's marrying Squinky or is it Mel and Squinky who are marrying Ham?

I'm already going to disrupt one couple's wedding this summer; I'm not sure I can spare enough time in my hectic schedule to fit in a second.

And there was I thinking that I'd managed to reword that sentence so that those kind of jokes couldn't be made.

Apparently I am a failure. But anyway, it's not me getting married. It's a friend at university.

USA Today has a graph that shows what married couples miss most, in their paper today.

1. Nothing.
2. Living by your own rules.
3. Having less responsibility. (Control freak alert!)
4. Having time to yourself (So why did they get married, again?)
5. Managing your own time. (See 3.)
6. Managing you own money. (See 5. And lay down the rules about your 360 before you tie the knot.)

I don't have much of a social life, though. I'm waiting for the social tides to change in my favor.

Having someone you love spending time with doesn't mean you don't appreciate a bit of alone time now and again.

Arguments over money are terrible things and easy to get into (you bought what?) Mrs Urhan and myself avoid these by maintaining separate bank accounts (the household bills are shared in that she pays for some things and I for others)

Yeah, but... traditionally, getting married means acting as one, rather than two.

But yeah, this is the 21st century. And I've never been married.

We have separate bank accounts as well. And then we have an account for the house (and all the expenses that come with it) that we share, and an equal amount of money are being drawn from our accounts every month to the house account. Still, separate accounts and all, we love to pick on each others choices of where to put the money. Usually I get most critisism from Mr J when I buy clothes. But right now he can't say a thing ever since he announced he's going to get a sticker to put on the boat to replace the one that is all faded. The cost is 600 kr / £43.64 /$ 87.24 /€64.88 !!

To be honest I don't think he's getting the sticker after all.

So, we have Squinks, Mel, Rob, and Ham getting married. Do I fit in that equation somewhere?

Oh dear, this is getting to be incestuous.

We need two more people to round it out to seven people. Let's go kidnap Jel and Jat and go live on a tropical island.
