My wedding is going to be WAY more fun than your wedding!

Pipe down. I am not getting married... not anytime soon (sorry mom). But, when I do, my wedding will be more fun than the average wedding.

A year or so ago, while sitting around in our P.J.s (most likely eating junk food), I was asking some friends of mine "if you could have anyone alive or dead sing at your wedding who would it be?" I got all the generic answers you'd usually hear, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Celine Dion, Micheal Buble, James Blunt, yada yada yada. Nope, not at my wedding! I wanted Lionel Richie! Who doesn't want to celebrate to "Dancing on the Ceiling", "Say you, say me", or "Hello" performed by the vocals of Lionel Richie??? I took a lot of heat for my choice and I have never backed down. I still say, give me Lionel!

But, yesterday my roommate went out of town, so I decided to catch up on some much needed TiVo time. So, I watched the Grammy's that we recorded a month or so ago. Pretty much I navigated through the 4-hour show at rapid pace, checking out the clothes mostly. And then all of the sudden I had to stop the fast forwarding entirely. What was that? Lionel Richie got nominated for a 2006 Grammy Award?!? I rewound it 3x. It is true. He REALLY did!

I have two feelings on this recently discovered triumph for my man Lionel. Complete victory and utter defeat.

1.) I feel so completely vindicated in my choice for a wedding singer. All you nay-sayers. Take That!

2.) But, now I will REALLY never be able to afford to have Lionel Richie at my wedding. Who would have thought he'd ever make a come back?!?

What are the odds that Mr. Big will make a come back? I may have split my vote now.

I'll come. As long as we're dancing to Lionel. Otherwise, no way.

This man should win grammy's just for album covers. Where's the one of him in the "leaning" position? That one is frame-able.
