Jet lag, Brain lag, everywhere a lag lag

We just got back from an epic trip back home to the states where I officiated my baby sister’s wedding, reunited with whole gaggle of relatives (some of whom I hadn’t seen for decades), and took the kids to Disneyland for their first time (thanks dad and Vangie!) the day before we left. It was basically a day and a half by planes and a bus (including a 1.5 hour stopover in Incheon and a brief respite in the Lad Prao area of Bangkok at our relatives’ place), and jet lag/exhaustion has hit all of us hard. I nearly went out of my mind for the past couple hours by accidentally enabling this setting on my phone:

Settings -> Developer Options -> Force RTL Layout direction

It will be fun to prank someone with this in the future; it’s incredibly irritating and nearly impossible to Google an answer. It basically reverses the order of everything in the Android taskbar (clock on the left, status notifications on the right) and justifies all text on screen to the right (and with that description, this page may now become the first hit for people who accidentally enable this setting).

  1. Congratulations!

    In October, I’m supposed to be officiating at my little brother’s wedding. I’ve gotten the online “ordination,” but I still need to get registered and licensed in West Virginia. As a wedding officiant, did you have to go through all that rigamarole? If so, how long did it take you to process all the dang paperwork? And do you have any officiant-related suggestions?

  2. I did not have to register because I did it in California, where it is not required. As you know, in WV it is required so… I’m not sure which outfit you went with, but the website for AMM (where I chose) is pretty thorough:

    As for other suggestions, I would just have to say that you should be ready to be flexible and look confident because people are looking to you to be in charge for the duration of the ceremony, but shit happens. I know that’s pretty obvious, but it’s the best advice I can give.

  3. Many thanks. I am indeed using AMM (wrote about that here); it had been suggested to me by my brother. I bought the AMM how-to packet, but it hasn’t arrived after a month’s waiting, so I’m just going to see what I can accomplish via online work and a couple international phone calls.

    Glad you had a good time in the States. Sounded rushed, but fun.
