The Cupboard Was Bare

I've been mostly ambivalent about registering, grateful for the fact that people want to buy us things for getting married, but not really getting the whole concept of picking out the things for people to buy. But that was before last week, when our last remaining glass broke, leaving us with a hodgepodge of drinking vessels. Containing my mom's old coffee mugs and a purple Nalgene bottle, the cabinet above our sink now looks more like it belongs in my old off-campus apartment at college than in the home of two responsible adults.

To our recent guests who had to drink orange juice from a beer stein and iced tea from wine glasses, thanks for your patience. We'll have this whole registry thing figured out before your next visit.

We wanted to register for honeymoon items. We thought it was a great idea. You know, you register at honeymoon.com and pick what you'd like to do on your honeymoon and then folks contribute. Here it is three days from the wedding - NO ONE used it. Everyone just wanted the regular registry. They don't get anything else.
