My first trip to Michigan was somewhat of a success. Lauren and I flew into Detroit and then made our way over to Ann Arbor for the Ornekian/Matteson wedding. We were able to spend some time in downtown Ann Arbor and got to see the campus, etc… which was really cool. Then we got on a bus and headed to an Armo church (that’s the Ornekian side of the wedding) for the ceremony. Everything went off without a hitch and Kellie looked amazing. The reception started pretty much immediately and it was great catching up with friends (mostly from USC’s Stark Program) I haven’t seen in years. It was odd for me to think it had been that long, but I guess that’s what happens when you’re all busy and I live in NY now… and I am admittedly horrible about calling anyone. I’m truly grateful for something like Facebook or I would be pretty out of touch. I’m just not a phone person. What is great is that they were all doing really well. Keith’s building an empire. Paul is about to start another movie as a line producer. Dan is still at Depth of Field and just got signed by a top management company as a writer. Ryley is on track with Dikran (I talk to Dikran more than I talk to my own girlfriend so I know how he’s doing).
We then proceeded to get really drunk and make fools of ourselves on the dance floor. At least I did. I only know this because Lauren informed me the next day. Which is why our trip was only somewhat of a success. We completely missed the brunch the next day (even if I had it together – I thought it was at 11:30 and it was actually at 10)… and I am missing the end of the night. I like to think I was a complete gentlemen and enthralled everyone with my ballroom dancing skills.
