me: ashley youre getting married on saturday, is that true?
Ashley: true statement
me: how do you feel now that its just a few days away?
Ashley: excited, but a little nervous just in the way that i want everything to go well
me: what is the one thing youre most worried about at this point?
Ashley: hmm… people having a great time & things to look beautiful i guess!
me: how many daisies will be present?
me: who is your best maid?
Ashley: haha maid of honor! anne of course
me: what color dresses are your girls gonna wear?
Ashley: give you one guess
me: black, like your men?
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”
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
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
Ashley: not really. i still remember how it tasted :P
me: ok, so what wedding gift do you really wanna get?
me: for what?
Ashley: so i can pay my mortgage next month with no problem
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: 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?

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: just one who i would’ve retardedly done that with
Ashley: i seriously THANK GOD i didnt. seriously

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.
