when i got married, the internet was not really a known thing. certainly nobody we knew actually had it…

since i’ve been married, we have had no major events that required this sort-of-tacky/ sort-of-cute new invention- the ‘save the date!’ email.

i always kind of figured that if you were going to invite someone somewhere that you just sent the actual invitation. if it was so far in advance that you didn’t have invitations, you probably didn’t need people to save a date…

but as my date with destiny approaches, i wanted to invite all of you to SAVE THE DATE- my court date, that is:

june 28th at 1pm in the 45-B district court in oak park, michigan (on oak park boulevard, next to the police station). i honestly have no idea exactly what to expect. i don’t know if i will even have a chance to say anything, or if it will turn out to be some kafke-esque affair where i go in front of a judge or magistrate just so they can say “guilty!” and slap me with a fine.  i hope i’ll get a fair hearing, and i hope i’ll say the right things, but it’s all kind of a mystery…

in any case, i would really really love for there to be some people there to lend support and make it clear that i am not just an isolated nut case. it would be so nice for some of you to be able to be in court- whichever way things turn out…

so, if you are flexibly employed, or legally curious, or just plain a good friend,

SAVE THE DATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
