Brian and Rebecca

It seems like a lot of people that I know are either getting engaged or married these days. On this coming weekend (Saturday, July 2nd, 2005), Brian and Rebecca will finally get hitched after being together for (correct me if I’m wrong) about six years.
These two met each other in a room in Anacapa. I think it might have been one of those nights where Brian and I lugged my mini TV and VCR deck all the way from San Nicholas, so that we could watch a movie and have a drink away from the freaks in our dorm (not to say that we weren’t freaks, or that the people that we were hanging out with weren’t either).
After the Doctor Pepper mixed with Jose Cuervo and the pizza ran out, I think we all noticed a subtle difference in the way Becky (as we called her back then) looked at Brian, and the way that he avoided making eye contact with her. I am not saying this to poke fun in any way, but it was truly a precious moment.
From the very beginning, their relationship already looked kind of like they were already married. They shared hobbies (I still can’t wrap my head around how, exactly, Brian got Rebecca to get interested in the card game Magic: The Gathering…), helped eachother to study, and always worked things out in a fairly peaceful and balanced manner.
I am happy to say that their relationship is proceeding like I thought it would. Nothing seems to have changed too much from how things started with these two, and for that I am comforted. It is said that life changes after you get married, but this relationship might just be the exception to the rule.
Congratulations Brian and Rebecca. I wish I could be there in person to celebrate your wedding, but know that I will be celebrating here in my own special way. I still haven’t decided whether to toast you over Long Island Iced Teas, Hurricaine Punch, or a nice warm can of Natty Ice…

  1. I never realized that 2212 Anacapa carried so much signifigance. Scary…real scary. Congrats Brian. Sorry Rebecca.

  2. P.S.
    Toast away with them all. Just no Jose!
    Currently, it would be Rum and Coke for Brian.

  3. Good God man. I was lucky I wasn’t there for the original conception. Who knows, one of those rays that hit Rebecca to Brian could’ve hit Adam to Becky, or Scuba to Laura….oh wait……

  4. Well, it’s official – we’re hitched! Adam, thanks for including us in the blog! Actually, Brian was drinking Aftershock (or should it be called liquid courage?) the night we “met”. Sadly, the true story of that first night had to be sanitized slightly for the wedding ceremony b/c a hook-up in Anacapa just isn’t so romantic!
    Thanks again for the good wishes.

  5. Ah, yeah, Aftershock! I remember we had a discussion on it in comparison to Jaeger, Sambuca, Goldschlager, and the other sweet, spicy liquers. Nasty.
    Again, I’m really bummed that I couldn’t make it- sorry!
    It’s weird seeing “Rebecca Taft”, but I think it has a nice ring to it. Have a great honeymoon!

  6. Congratulations to Rebecca and Brian! I guess the cosmic rays hit the right two people that night. It took me a couple extra years to figure out how to make relationship work, but I found my dream guy…sorry, not Scuba… We are expecting a baby girl in December. Adam, I guess that makes one more person you know (or at least you knew me at one time) that got married.
