Getting Engaged (Finally)

Calling this post long-delayed is a bit like calling the Pacific Ocean “wet” or the guy who slipped up on the Zune leap-year bug “fired” – it is a severe understatement while still being accurate. I was recently alerted by Nightsinger to the fact that my lovely wife repeatedly tells her version of the engagement […]

I hate Mandrina’s home town

Everyone sodding knows everyone. It’s a fairly populous area, but the place comes across as if everyone went to the same schools with the same people for years. Tara or Mandrina will give voice to how it’s a sucking vortex, and nobody escapes. I hate it for entirely different reasons. I still have yet to […]

March 11, 2007 is a date that will live in

Something or other. I was going to write a long-winded, lengthy post, but given that I don’t have time for that, I’ll post the great news, then move on to the less important items that are clogging up what little brainspace I have. On March 11, 2007, Mandrina and I were married in Pensacola, Florida. […]

Math error

I’m sorting through wedding response cards (oh, what fun!). It’s not that bad; given that I’m inviting people to what amounts to a destination wedding, a roughly 50% acceptance rate is okay in my book — most of the people who couldn’t come I’m not terribly surprised — other, closer friends weddings, the cost of […]

I guess I’m getting married

I could have backed out of it, I suppose, but now I really can’t. I booked the plane tickets for our flights to the wedding site, and then from there to our honeymoon destination, and then back home. With free upgrades to first class — next time you need to book a vacation, call NWA […]

Small Ship Cruises

I’m getting married in March. This, at least, is what the invitation says. I’m currently of the opinion that both parties will be present, but I could be wrong. Going on the assumption, however, that I will be getting married, I need to at least try to make plans for a “honeymoon.” Given that we’re […]

Delayed Proposal Story Part 1

This may be a bit old… I proposed to Mandrina seven months and twenty-three days ago. Now, here’s the rest of the story.

Sitting with kittens

I’m watching crappy television — the new “Blade the Series.” It’s just entertaining enough that I’m going to see if it improves — it’s no Buffy, that’s for certain. I’m reading up on CSS and XHTML — apparently, frames are a no-no — as I have to create the website for our wedding. I should […]

Honeymoon post 2 (in one day!)

I’m getting more stressed trying to plan a honeymoon than I was planning on proposing!

Looking for a Honeymoon

Trying to find a Honeymoon location has been a hassle. Originally, Mandrina wanted to go to Vienna, Austria. I wasn’t thrilled with that, but I came up with a wonderful compromise — three or four nights in Vienna, an overnight train to Switzerland (I want to open a Swiss Bank account!), then another train to […]
