Oh yes.

We got our marriage license yesterday afternoon!!!

We drove over to Oregon City to get a Clackamas County license, even though you can get one in any county and use it in a different county. But our officiant is going to take it back to the Clackamas Cty. office so we figured we might as well eliminate the guesswork as to whether they'd accept a Washington County license, etc.

We'd already gotten the form mailed to us, which was a big help - we got in and out in just a few minutes. A very short, round lady helped us. She entered us into the computer, and made some cracks about how we're paying $60 so we can't turn back now, and she gave us our "real" license and a commemmerative license, which we need to get someone with nice handwriting (or calligraphy skills even) to fill out for us. When I was little, I used to imagine going to get the marriage license with my fiance, and I wanted him to be right-handed so we could sign the license at the same time and still hold hands. So when we were up there, even though we didn't have to sign anything (we'd already done so when we filled out the application), I grabbed his hand and was very happy. :D

So in 2 days (I think), we can legally be married!

When you get married, you guys can kiss and stuff.

Re:
That's why I'm so excited. Yes.

But seriously, I have a friend who refused to kiss her boyfriends. She had this dream of a guy proposing to him and she'd kiss him if she wanted him to know she accepted. I remember going to her house sometimes and he was there and he'd try to kiss her and she'd turn her lips in like she was blotting lipstick together or something. It was really corny. But she kissed him when he proposed, just like she wanted. Weirdo.

Re:

That must have been quite a scene -- kind of like Pepe LePew chasing the female cat around (who, unfortunately, always spilled a paint stripe on her back).

Glad it all worked out in the end for them -- I admire his patience.

Re:
I love Pepe Le Pew. :D

I admire his patience too. It's not every guy who can spend a year with someone without even being able to kiss her. I would've given up. But they were very mushy in other ways. I remember once I was over there with them and he started chasing her around and tickling her, and she came up to me on the couch to get away from him and he ended up tickling her while she was on my lap. It was really weird. I remember being a bit angry with him for not being able to keep his hands to himself when company was over. Ick.

Re:
Ugh. Just reading that made me feel ill. I'm not a big fan of PDAs (Putrid Displays of Affection) and this is borderline red zone.

Even though he didn't touch you, that whole scene is too mushy for anyone's sake. You should have cried rape and spilled coffee on him -- and then run away as quickly as you could.

Er, or something.

Re:
I think he did touch me, but he didn't mean to. He was too busy trying to make her giggle. Eww eww eww. I think he's calmed down now, though. They've been together for like three years.

Have you been practicing saying "hello, this is my husband Cory?"

Re:
No, but it's going to be weird signing my name differently - every time someone asks me for my last name, I'm going to say "Cass...er...Granholm!" :)

Yeah, the "real" factor just jumped up a bunch. Eee!

"Cassergranholm" sounds kinda nice. Almost like a mountain range or a rare type of lizard. "The greenbacked cassergranholm can only be found in this Australian mountain range during March 1 and April 4 with a chance of activity on July 12."

Did you see how I referenced our birthdays and wedding date in that fake sentence? Keen, right?

Re:

Re:
Graningham sounds like we're old people.

Let's just stick with Granholm. We could change it to Grannyholm when we get old.

Just wait till you have to go sign a check or something. I used to go through 2 checks anytime I tried to gt groceries (before my new debit card came). People looked at me wierd like I was forging checks or something, so I'd just look sheepishly at them and say "new bride" and then I'd get the look. The look is defined as "ahha! well aren't you in for suprises!"

Lol, it's like some older people treat it like I'de never seen a man before and now I get to see him in all his 'morning glory' and I'll look at him and say golly. And like I'm now in some sort of secret club. It's funny.

Re:
I've noticed that about sex a lot, too. It's very taboo until you're married, and then all the old people want you to have it. :D Except it's now called "having great-grandbabies" instead.
