Duct Tape

I'm a 100% klutz. I mananged to slice my finger. Don't ask how it happened. I don't want to bore you with the details. (Besides, it being totally embarrassing.) It came at an inopportune time when I had to launder. I couldn't get it wet because it stung so bad it felt like it was on fire.

Nards, of course, ever the reliable and resourceful one, found a way: duct tape. And true to form, after he covered it with duct tape, he had to take a picture.

I had to take a picture of him as well. It's not as good though. =P

Nards said that there are two essential elements in the universe: duct tape and WD40. Everything else is just an add-on. THere are two kinds of problems -- Problem 1: something that shouldn't move but is moving, Solution: duct tape. Problem 2: something that should move and is not moving, Solution: WD40.

Sometimes, I think Nards is the country's very own McGyver.

In Bad Taste

When has it been acceptable in any etiquette book to ask for money as wedding gifts? I was wondering if some bridal planner or etiquette writer has deemed this in good form. So I googled it.

Is it appropriate to give money? Absolutely, if that?s your preference. What?s not appropriate is asking for a gift of money. This is considered very bad wedding gift etiquette. While gifts of any kind are a must for those attending the wedding, it is never acceptable for the happy couple to request money over other types of gifts.

My other question is that if one can afford to get married in a church in an exclusive community, and hold one's reception at a very expensive five star hotel, and was able to buy a house and furnish it, why is there a need to ask for "enveloped gifts" in lieu of traditional gifts? Guests are expected to give wedding presents, but to specifically state what you want, particularly money, some (me! me! me!) may be offended. I rather like what friends of mine did. They said, since they have everything they need, instead of giving them a gift for their wedding, they gave the guests the option to donate to their favorite charity.

Envelopes are too expensive. Unless, one can send an envelope containing a card saying, congratulations.
