Project Husband, aka “Muriel’s Wedding” IRL

For you non web-a-holics out there, “IRL” means “In Real Life.”

Seriously, this sounds a lot like that Australian movie “Muriel’s Wedding.” The premise of that movie, much like this lady’s deal, is essentially this: Muriel wants to get married, no matter what the circumstances and no matter to whom.

I’m not saying that this lady has the same intentions as Muriel, but in my opinion, it really puts a hamper on things like dating when you know that you have a wedding coming up.

Is this just a case of someone that has taken the fraudulent “law” of attraction to its Nth level, or is it something else entirely?

I wish her the best, seriously, I do. I’ll be paying attention on Feb 15 to see if she does indeed get married to someone else or just pulls a Dennis Rodman type of stunt.

“I thought, ‘This is so much fun. I’m so happy she’s found such a great match,’ ” recalls Linehan, 35, a Dallas singer, music teacher and marketing consultant.

Just like that, an idea hit her: “If I plan my own wedding, I’ll be married.”

She’s since picked out the date: Feb. 15, 2011, which was her grandparents’ anniversary. She has a venue: Piazza in the Village in Colleyville . Once she finds a groom, she’ll be all set.


Last February, Lisa Linehan sat back and watched as her friend got ready for her wedding in Central Park.
