Big News

Joel asked me to marry him. I told him, “yes, absolutely I will marry you.”

I’m not a real big poster of super-personal stuff on my site, usually, but I really do think this merits a bit of fanfare. Because I’m crazy-stupid happy and giddy and generally given to squeeing right now.

We’d been talking about marriage-stuff, and looked at rings a while back. I found one I liked and showed it to Joel not so long ago. As we were getting breakfast together this morning, when I came back from the kitchen with the coffee cups, a little white box was waiting on my placemat.

So, it’s all official, and I’m just as happy as can be.

    Whoa! Congratulations!!!

    I would have bet on this outcome from the start, and couldn’t be happier for you. Also, that is a lovely ring.

    All I can think is, “Of course.”

    And hey, I know this really great seamstress? If you need someone to make you the perfect wedding dress. ;P

    hey, i think we are friends on myspace! i keep thinking that we will meet in person somewheres, but i’ve been a slacker about biking events. i was surprised to run across your blog. 😉 (i saw a mention of harsh and figured how many guys could be nicknamed harsh in the world??) congrats on your engagement!! meg

  23. meetzorp says:


    Yeah, Harsh is a good friend of mine. One of the usual Friz suspects.

    I don’t do as many biking events as I might…certainly not this time of year, since I spend exactly as much time as I can stand outside on my commute. As the weather improves, though I’ll get out and about more. You’ll recognise me by my workboots which scandalize most normal cyclists.

    Thank you to everyone for the congratulations and good wishes. I’m really awfully touched, though it sounds awfully cheezy to say it this way.
