Passage to Minneapolis, and the India we found there.

As promised, here are the pictures from the Indian Wedding in Minneapolis.

Of course Cody wants a sari. What gay man doesn't want to wrap himself in spangly fabric? ;-)

i want to be indian! that looked so much better than the chicken dance we were all forced to perform at my white white cousin's wedding. a truly strange cultural ritual that i want no part of ever again.

I want to wrap myself in spangly fabric, even though I'm not a gay man!

I read an article a while ago written by an American woman of Indian descent whose mother talked her into wearing a sari for a year to see what it was like. She said it was "delicate, like a souffle". I can't imagine myself wearing a souffle for very long without destroying it.

yeah, you're not the souffle type in combat boots. that is why jacob should dump you and date me.

I beg your pardon, I'm totally not wearing combat boots.

Combat boots are made of leather. I'm wearing $7 fake leather sneakers from Payless, thank you very much.

sometimes you wear boots. you have to do laces while sitting down. i've seen you do it! jacob, she takes too long to put on shoes. maybe you should dump her. because that's an excellent reason to dump someone. with me you can have whole scintillating conversations about sugar shoes.

Posted by: michele at June 25, 2004 02:19 PM

I can't wear those boots with the taking forever to lace, because they've fallen completely apart and even duct tape won't hold them together anymore. It's hopeless, and sad. Now I slip my shoes on without even untying them, and I die a little bit inside every time I do it.

Did you know that when I looked up sugar shoes to try to figure out what those Geishas were that someone was talking about on your page, I got porn?

Posted by: Dianna at June 25, 2004 02:22 PM

no! i didn't know! but i'm glad you told me on cody's post about indian weddings.

jacob, she goes looking for geisha porn only on accident. i think your mission is clear here: dump her. i am geisha porn.

Posted by: michele at June 25, 2004 02:26 PM

i remember the first time the moms saw your duct taped boots, dianna, and she thought it was fancy silver workings and was all impressed until she looked closer.

cody, sorry for this. did that last picture mean that you guys will be getting married soon?

Posted by: didofoot at June 25, 2004 02:28 PM

sorry cody. if you feel the need to delete any of my comments, particularly with the pictures of women in japanese finery and now me talking about geishas, you go right ahead.

you and jay, by the way, are one of my favorite picture couples. i mean, i know nothing about your actual relationship, but you always look so good together in pictures. cause you're both so good looking. and this is why i root for you to get married. so there will be more pictures.

Posted by: michele at June 25, 2004 02:32 PM

Um, yeah. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hijack your blog, especially seeing as I don't even know you. 1,000 apologies.

Posted by: Dianna at June 25, 2004 02:40 PM

no worries folks! If you can, you should all come to my party tomorrow night: Evite

Posted by: Cody at June 25, 2004 02:44 PM

Clearly there is a limit to the number of pictures an unmarried couple can pose for. ;-) You heteros are always trying to get us to conform to hetero-normativity. tsk. tsk. ;-)

Awesome pics you guys! Somehow, seeing these pictures makes me feel justified in my obsession with Bollywood and (not so) secret desire to have an entirely Indian wedding of my own. For a good survey of Indian wedding fashion and traditions, check out the following Bollywood films and some pictures that I posted on my blog.
