Speaking of the wedding, I'd like to thank all of you (including Steve, Ben, Julian, John, Marshall, and Thomas) who commented on the various rough drafts I put up here. In particular, Steve helped a great deal with all the various aspects of officiating a wedding. If I've forgotten anyone else, the omission is entirely accidental.
In retrospect, I feel I was so focused on and concerned about what I was writing that I didn't have time to be particularly nervous about being an officiant.
I think I now really understand why Steve enjoys this. In fact, I think I also understand why he wants to marry everyone. It's fun. :)
