Veiled Bitches... ;) [Oct. 24th, 2007|09:04 am]

The first American woman to wear a wedding veil was Nelly Custis, Martha Washington's daughter. She wore the veil to please her husband-to-be, who had complimented her on how pretty she looked when seen through a lace-curtained window.

And some Flight of the Conchords goodness. Or... maybe not goodness. lol. Doggy Dance.

They used too. I think mourning veils are a cool thing.

Through a lace curtain? Wow...that's almost as bad from the line from the animated Star Wars, when Anakin tells Amidala she looks really good in the dark. :)

Speaking of fun things to watch, have you seen this? Africam they have these live streaming webcams set up on a game reserve in Africa. I'm watching wildebeests graze!

Very cool. :)

I know the veil's been used for ages, but I think that it was the first recorded time in the states. *shrug* I could be wrong.

Yeah, not the most flattering complement. I said something similar to a girl once. What I meant to say was "you have a really classical kind of beauty", but what came out was "you would have been really pretty about 200 years ago."

She gave me a dirty look and smacked me. But we were good friends so she also listened when I explained what I meant.

the veil story makes me so happy! i've always hated the whole hidden, unveiled/unwrapped like a gift as if you were someone else's to give thing. doing it to look pretty is so much nicer.

Yeah. First thing I thought when I read that was "Oh god. He would only want to see me when my face was blurry. Uh. Maybe marriage with this guy isn't the right thing for me."

Also: FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS IS THE SHIT. My roommate and I watch "If You're Into It" when we're having a bad day to make us feel better.
