Tedious Tuesday

  |  By Roseanne Dela Rosa

Did you know that Tuesday at 11:45 a.m. is the most stressful time of the workweek? I heard this on the radio a few days ago. Apparently, on Monday everyone’s brain is just coasting and come Tuesday—watch out—because that’s when the reality of all the work we have to do actually sets in. So note to brides: avoid wedding planning around that time and day—even if you are at work.


Tedious Tuesday

To divert your attention from wedding planning—well, sort of—I thought I’d distract you with some funny wedding trivia and facts that I compiled. Strange but true facts. The Casanova one is simply disturbing. Happy reading:

Did you know?

A pearl engagement ring is said to be bad luck because its shape echoes that of a teardrop.

The longest engagement on record was Octavio Guillen and Adriana Martinez. After "dating" for 67 years, they finally got married. They were both 82.

The longest wedding dress was found in Germany with a length of 515 feet.

Keeping track of all his many lovers was impossible for Casanova and when he went to ask for his girlfriend Leonilda’s hand in marriage her mother screamed and fainted. She had been one of Casanova’s lovers in the past, and Leonilda was actually his own daughter.

Movie star Joan Crawford would change all the toilet seats in her house whenever she married a new husband.

Do any of you have any other interesting or amusing bits and bytes to share with me?
