    Does anyone watch the TV show "Community"?  I just saw the latest episode on Hulu — "Urban Matrimony and the Sandwich Arts" and I was cracking up because what Britta goes through is EXACTLY how I'm feeling. 

     

    Britta is a very counterculture character who practices vegeterianism, goes to political rallies, and in general rails against the system (all things I've done!).  In the beginning of the episode, she describes a wedding as "a little girl's tea party" where "they're not drinking tea, they're drinking antiquated gender roles!"  Pretty much how I would've put it 5-10 years ago. 

     

    But then her friend gets married, and she finds herself helping to plan the wedding.  Much to everyone's astonishment, Britta turns out to have a real knack for floral arrangements and decorating, and she pulls together a gorgeous wedding.  She then panics and becomes outraged with herself for turning into a stereotype, ranting "I'm Betty Crocker. I'm Martha Stewart. I'm one of the Steppenwolf wives!"

     

    So is it just me, or is anyone else totally shocked to find themselves hooked on browsing wedding dresses and thinking about centerpieces?  I am seriously loving this stuff — fairy lights! tulle! it's all so pretty! — but part of me is like, who is this girly girl that I've become?  Am I ever going to get the old me back? 

     

    Anyways, just wanted to share.  Now I'm off to plan a hiking trip or something. :)
