A few people have mentioned that they are looking forward to meeting me on Saturday. Why? I don't know. I suspect it's because Corinne is such a totally awesome frickin' person and people are curious to find out what kind of person she chose to marry.

Experience has taught me, though, that people expect me to be the same fun-loving, energetic, social person that she is. We're yin and yang rather than peas-in-a-pod. Where she is optimistic I am pessimistic. Where she is flighty and chatty I am intense and quiet. Where she is thin I am thick. And so on. When people meet me expecting Mr. Social Butterfly it usually results in misunderstanding, discomfort, and a generally negative social encounter. I don't want that. I want to facilitate comfort and joy. So I'm going to tell you a bit about myself in hopes that doing so will allow you to form realistic expectations and prepare you for some of my peculiarities.
