Engaged! OMG!

Well, it's finally official. Emily (concertinette) and I are going to get married! I finally got up the nerve to propose to her in the proper fashion. Sure, it was on Valentine's Day, but that's just because it was the most convenient occasion to do so. Even so, I had a real hard time keeping my mouth shut. I think the whole world already knew by the time I actually asked her.

Anyway, she's got all the juicy details, but know this; there was a ring involved. And roses. And a hand-drawn card, too.

Wow! I'm so completely beside myself, we're so happy and excited! No details on wedding plans, but we'll figure them out soon enough.

(BTW, this all has me pretty distracted this week, so if I'm late on my PS update next week, you'll know why...)

I've wanted to bug you all week about this, but didn't want to tip your hand should Emily answer the phone or whatever.

Congratulations!

Ha ha! Funny thing is that a friend accidently did on an email list we're both on. Luckily, Emily didn't check that mail folder before the evening's festivities. So, dodged a bullet, there. ;)

Congratulations! I proposed to Shaenon on Valentine's Day, too (four years ago), and things have worked out pretty well for us. Best wishes to you and Emily!

Congratulations! Whee! Completely inevitable, and wonderful for it.

And let me be the first to switch from annoying question A ("So when are you two going to get married?") to annoying question B ("So when are you two going to have kids?")

Congratulations!

I could share my account of marital bliss, but that would just be weird, coming from a complete stranger. 0.o

Anyway, all the best to you and your bride-to-be!
