For the third time in the last four days I had to wake up at the crack of dawn and take the train out to South Orange, NJ. This time it was to apply for the marriage license. I have to admit, it was actually kind of exciting, it made this whole marriage thing seem even more official.

Apparently you used to have to take a blood test when you applied to be married, but not anymore. Now you just have to check a box that says "Do you have a sexually transmitted disease? Yes or No?". I am quite happy about this, because I don't like giving my blood up, and I'm sure it's just as reliable to check a box as it is to go through all the rigamarole of having blood taken and tested and all that. Also, if we still had to give blood we'd be in trouble now, because we are so close to our date, and we'd totally slept on the whole license thing.

Took my third yoga lesson. I am getting better at keeping my legs straight when I try to bend down and touch my toes. I also almost chanted "om" when everyone else did. Maybe I'll do it for real next time. However, I didn't participate in the bit at the end when we close our eyes and say a little "dedication", because to me it feels too much like a prayer, and I just can't get into it.

In other news - not related to my new yuppie exercise routine - comicreaders.com did an interview with me and Radtke.
