kshandra: Six hearts in rainbow colors, linked in a star pattern around an infinity symbol (Polyamory)
The next person to make a Star Wars Day reference about my wedding anniversary is getting shoved out the airlock.

[personal profile] gridlore and I were married May 4, 1991, because it was the Saturday closest to the one-year anniversary of our roadtrip to see the Dead, and his proposal on the trip home. For all that we met through our mutual interest in science fiction, that interest had NOTHING to do with our wedding plans.

(Besides, if we'd wanted a fannishly-significant wedding, we would have chosen November 22nd, he would have been dressed like Jon Pertwee, and I would have worn Romana's scarf from "Destiny of the Daleks" in lieu of a veil.)

As you were.

I feel for you. Jason and I got married on July 4th 2008 for pretty much the same reasons (Our anniversary of when we first got together was July 1st 2005) and EVERY YEAR someone makes with the Fireworks jokes...*facepalm*

It was also the only Saturday available before Lolita (yes, that was the minister's name) went in for jaw surgery.

Then we could have asked far too often, 'You married Who?'

Hey, least it falls on a reasonably positive day that makes fans crazy but in a happy day. Could you imagine being married on, say, September 11, 1999?

I get the pun, I go along with it... but Star Wars Day for me will always be May 25.

Same here. I saw this post and thought, "How the hell is May 4th Star Wars-related? Now if they were getting married on the 25th..." I had to Google "star wars day" to figure out what the reference was.

I mean, you'd think serious Star Wars fans would care more about the actual release date than a kind of weak pun. I'm not even that much of a fan (not since 1999, that's for sure!), and yet I remember the 25th.

At least it is something you'll always remember. We tend to forget if it was 12/21 or 12/22.

I, for one, never make the connection until you mention it.

Warmest anniversary regards to the both of you!

Yeah, those comments are about as useful as people telling me that I somehow scheduled my birthday for International Towel Day (especially with this year being the year of The Answer for me). Um, yeah.

Oh, I WILL be throwing an Answer party ("3 pints? At lunchtime?" "Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so."), it is just the implication that I some how planned my birthday that way.

And A and I are Star Wars fans enough that, if we had thought about Star Wars Day when we were planning our wedding, we would have picked that. (But we were going ~1/2 between our birthdays.)
