Audio: Something old, something new, something biased, something myopic

by Jeremy Hooper

My partner and I are knee deep in wedding planning. This weekend we're going to a flea market so that we can fulfill this high-low design concept that we have (pairing found objects and nostalgic pieces with high end flora arrangements). In two weeks we're taking his parents to Connecticut to show them around the venue that will host our mid-June ceremony and reception. Our nighttime TV viewing has become a multitasking experience -- one eye on "30 Rock," the other on a computer display showing options for rings, table rentals, etc. And just last week we were excited to finally nail down our honeymoon (a European cruise). It's fun, it's daunting -- it is our wedding experience.

Discriminatory and self-absorbed. Grab your cameras, "Bridezillas" producers: We've found a nut you all have yet to crack!

Or they get it and just want to keep America confused. Either way, it's annoying.
