Orla’s new favourite video game is My Fantasy Wedding. The game is set in two floors of a shopping mall, where the player gets to prepare for a wedding. Orla, being true to her middle name (Imelda) insisted on always going to the shoe store first. (Incidentally, her penchant for shoes carries over to real life, as well!)Her second favourite activity in the game is choosing the groom. She consistently chose the blond – perhaps a predictor of the future. Eoghan, meanwhile, lent a hand by choosing the outfits for the groom to wear. Jenn was at least relieved that all of Orla’s choices were tasteful. The commentator in the game was impressed too – the Wedding Planner, who gushes with a Barbi-esque voice, “What a hottie” Orla’s prospective groom is, and “Oh my gosh, that’s a big ring !”.

The Wedding Planner also educates Orla on the finer points of planning a wedding, by reminding her to carefully decide on her bridesmaids, for any changes in the future may cause a catfight. There’s even a screaming mother to round out the party – if the bride is dithering too much, the mother reminds the bride that the parents are the ones paying for this darn wedding anyway, and all decisions should be their’s to make… Scary (true-to-life ?) software for young women !
