    Ashley: no one is wearing black!

    me: who is in your princess court?

    Ashley: haha where did you get these terms? besides anne, my bridesmaids are angie, clarice, and my sisters all in PINK duh

    me: will you have a tiarra?

    Ashley: no, flowers in my hair though

    me: why no tiarra?

    Ashley: i just felt it would be more me to have flowers. and i dont want to overpower my dress, b/c its a bit sparkley

    me: sparkly shoes too?

    Ashley: very fancy and HIGH L.A.M.B. heels for the ceremony, than cute flipflops for the reception which yes, do have sparkles

    me: any other LAMB articles?

    Ashley: nope, just the one. maybe L perfume though :)

    me: band or a dj?

    Ashley: dj, with little interaction so they’re not all cheesy & they can’t play typical dj songs like “YMCA”

    me: “Shout”?

    Ashley: nope. none of those DJ songs, you know the ones

    me: what sort of food?

    Ashley: salad, pasta, some meat stuff i havent paid much attention to, and instead of a cake, cupcakes! and a bar with 3 jars of pink candy

    me: i think i saw some of that in your bridal shower, no?

    Ashley: hmm no, there were some tiny jars with candies inside. maybe thats what youre thinking of

    me: what songs do you want the dj to play for sure

    Ashley: there are too many to list honestly. we made the list before we even got engaged. think alternative, rock dance songs. beck, beastie boys, chemical bros, and of course NO DOUBT & GWEN. so many more. i cant possibly list them

    me: which beasties?

    Ashley: intergalactic. i listed that just now b/c i knew you would like that

    me: tsar?

    Ashley: haha no. hahahaha. you are persistent when it comes to them

    me: remind the peopel why youre a vegetarian

    Ashley: haha seriously? because when i was 12, i started getting grossed out by meat, so i stopped eating it. and the idea of eating it now makes me sick. and i like animals

    me: what happened at 12? what did you eat?

    Ashley: i had an undercooked burger

    me: nice

    Ashley: not really. i still remember how it tasted :P

    me: ok, so what wedding gift do you really wanna get?

    Ashley: money

    me: for what?

    Ashley: so i can pay my mortgage next month with no problem

    me: mortgage?

    Ashley: yeah i live in a house now, where have you been?

    me: i guess ive been out of the picture. when did you get a house?

    Ashley: i guess your spies are slacking. we moved in almost 2 months ago

    me: wow. congratulations

    Ashley: thanks! thats why im cleaning so much. people are going to be over here for the first time this weekend

    me: is it close to your work?

    Ashley: a little bit closer. but i wouldnt want anything very close to my work b/c its in the ghetto

    me: so money

    Ashley: yeah having a house is so money. hahaha jk

    me: so instead of the gift we discussed, would you prefer cash?

    Ashley: no, personal gifts are really special. and i would feel really weird getting money from you

    me: where are you going for your honeymoon?

    Ashley: just taking a little honeymoon to disneyland. actually in july we should be going to mexico. so that will be sorta honeymoonie

    me: sounds lovely

    Ashley: definitely

    me: where are you registered if people wanna give you a gift?

    Ashley: well i doubt anyone who doesnt know me would do that! :) but target, pottery barn, and bed bath & beyond, target giftcards are made of awesome too

    me: you have lots of fans on the busblog

    Ashley: i dont think so! i see the lack of comments your stuff about me gets thats ok

    me: theyre just shy. times have changed. people are tired saying right on tony or damn look at ashley

    Ashley: i know, most people lurk

    me: ok so if people wanna get you something at those places what do they do. i ask cuz ive never done anything like this before. just your full name?

    Ashley: actually you can probably find me just by searching ASHLEY BEV in Nevada, or the wedding date, 5/10/08

    me: does your new home have a hot tub?

    Ashley: actually it has a jacuzzi tub in the master bath. but i havent used it b/c i dont like baths

    me: will you soon be getting a dog?

    Ashley: no, i love my cat, he is the best pet anyone could ever have, dogs are a little too much work anyway & barking is annoying, i like dogs though. my dad has 2. thats enuogh. i can visit them when i want

    me: are you the last of your close friends to get hitched?

    Ashley: no, im middle of the road, in my group of high school friends, there are 2 married, 2 not

    me: one of the very first times i ever interviewed you on chat, in early 2001, i asked you how old you thought youd be when you would get married. do you remember what you answered?

    Ashley: hmm. i bet i guessed 24 or 25

    me: i think you said 25

    Ashley: i was pretty close! i know you think im 25, but im actually 26

    me: so what took you so long?

    Ashley: well we were engaged when we were 25, so i wasnt too far off1

    me: oh crap, you said 23, http://www.tonypierce.com/last.htm

    Ashley: wow seriously??? that was only 4 years away at that point, geez what was i thinking? luckily i never did anything stupid like marry immature boys on the strip! ;)

    me: did you meet a bunch there?

    Ashley: just one who i would’ve retardedly done that with

    me: !

    Ashley: i seriously THANK GOD i didnt. seriously

    me: speaking of, how did you meet your betrothed?

    Ashley: my best friend used to date his best friend. they sometimes brought her over to my house before she drove & i would say “oooh he’s cuuuute!”

    me: which best friend?

    Ashley: anne :)

    me: fascinating

    Ashley: they are our maid of honor & best man. they are still great friends, so everyone is ok

    me: ok well we all wish you the best. and know your wedding will be beautiful

    Ashley: thank you kindly

    me: any tips you have for wouldbe brides for wedding planning, now that youre almost done?

    Ashley: give yourself a lot of time, spread it all out.find vendors who you feel comfortable with & who you know you can depend on. have fun! :) and stay organized and dont be alarmed by slumps of procrastination where you dont feel like dealing with any of it, they pass

    me: perfecto. well have fun ashley and if Chip n Dale accosts you at disneyland thats just some busblog spies saying congrats

    Ashley: does this conclude this tittilating interview?

    me: yep, other than me saying i love you, i always will, and i only wish the best for you. you were so important in my life, and for this blog. and if your dude does anything wrong to you, i’ll break his neck.
