Bucketful of Press


2 Comments »

A lot of the press seems to be getting a couple things wrong – Noah’s last name “Fulmor” has no “e” in it, for example. I didn’t wear “pants under the dress,” rather, pants were part of the design. The pants are the dress. We didn’t go to Disney World for our official honeymoon, I just wanted to go to Disney World. Next year we’ll go to Antarctica for our honeymoon. One news source (in Britain) also thinks the ceremony cost just $16,000 – I have no idea where they got that number, since it was more like $60,000.

    I didn’t exactly go bragging around to my office or co-workers that you guys were going to do this, so today out of curiosity, I asked the Director of North Asia here in Tokyo (aka local Big Wig) if he’d heard anything about a couple that got married in zero gravity. At first he didn’t think so, but he suddenly shouted out that he had seen a video somewhere and started describing your dress and Noah’s tux to me! ^_^
    He’s pretty impressed by your event, needless to say…
