We got married. And then there was Gossip Girl.

Been away for awhile… getting married.

We got married in a small, intimate, recession-year (read:  frugally budgeted) ceremony on a local park beach and had dinner with our families waterside, followed by a cake and champagne reception with 60 friends.

A few days later, we left for a two-week honeymoon in beautiful Bali, with side trips to Lombok and Singapore.

While Indonesia is not an expensive place, over the course of a couple weeks for the wedding and the honeymoon, we did burn a hole in our entertainment and lifestyle budget significant enough to cut back on the spending for a few months after our return.

And then there was Zune VideoMarketplace to welcome me home. Score another small victory for my husband, because he was able to one-up my DVR sensibilities.

There was my beloved Xbox 360 logo… beckoning me with a world of content as far as the eye could see.  The Xbox sphere promised endless depth.  There I was, a 41-year old newlywed, diving shamelessly into the world of Gossip Girl.
