My wonderful Meg kitty.

(no subject)

Some of you may recall last year's April Fools prank. Those of you who don't are cynics -- geez. A guy proposes to his girlfriend and you assume it's an April Fools prank! ; )

What struck me as funny was that no one doubted the sincerity of relsqui's post. ; )

I'm not exactly sure how I managed to fight the urge to tell somebody else/post anonymously about it for a month, but it's probably best I did. As relsqui's dad put it, this sort of news spreads faster than yelling "Fire!" in a crowded movie theatre.

So, we came back to Santa Cruz, saw the Firefly marathon, had a wedding a la "Our Mrs. Reynolds" in line (with theotherchicago and company as witnesses), met a couple of folks afterwards (which resulted in the handle breaking off of my giant soda mug), came home, and zonked.

It feels like we've been engaged two days now as a result of our schedules slipping around. 8) No word on a date or plans at this point.

And in non-April Fools day news, A city manager (who claims 22 years of computer expertise) misinterprets a default web page as CentOS hacking the city's page. Had I been in his shoes, I'd have been sorely tempted to stop responding after the third email out of sheer morbid curiousity.
