Minnesota-Minneapolis and St. Paul

Dear Minnesota Government People

You have 6 hours and counting to do your goddamn job.  If you let this go to a shutdown, you're going to have the state parks AND the MN Zoo closed on one of the biggest holiday weekends of the year.  As well as the horse track.  Now while I normally don't care, if you close down the horse track you're going to be f*cking my weekend plans all up and I don't appreciate it.  We didn't vote you into office so that you could mess up errybody's good times.  FIX YOUR SH*T, PEOPLE.

    Why are you on here complaining about this? You sound pretty stupid, gosh darn horse track is closed this weekend so the world is going to end! Really? You aren't even engaged or getting married... I don't understand why you're on here, I think you should find a different site that fits the type of conversations you're looking to have because this clearly is not the place for it.

If her wedding was at the horse track, okay, I could see the relation there, but it's not. 

    And I didn't call her stupid, just said she's sounds pretty stupid but *GASP* oh please don't let me get banned from the site, I don't know what I would do with my life...

    Good point, though personally, I prefer nasty gas stations.  Rest stops kind of scare me a little bit.

    Listen here Captain Overdramatic, you need to slow your roll and stop acting like you've been given a double-shot of crazy. I have every right to complain about the fact that my state government is probably going to shutdown because our legislators and governor can't play nice and stop acting like a bunch of stubborn toddlers.  I don't pay them to put people out of work, and I don't pay them to have 1.5 hour meetings and then call it a day.  If you have a problem with me calling them on it then you can suck it.

    Also, if the only people on this website were people who hadn't been married, exactly how much advice do you realistically think you'd be able to get?  Who do you think would be able to answer your questions about wedding day dramas and issues, or what worked for them at their ceremony or reception, if the only folks on here were folks who had no idea because they'd never actually DONE it, genius?

    Not to mention that a HUGE part of local boards is getting local recommendations.  You can't get recommendations from people who haven't used the vendors.  I mean....you COULD, but I wouldn't advise it.

    Haha. Yes. I am from the Twin Cities and will be getting married there, but currently live in Northern California. Don't worry though, I have been told to go to my own board before. That is always pleasant.

    I will quit now that my purple wedding is over.
