    Major Life Changing Announcement

    For awhile now I've been seeing a wonderful girl. I met her here first, then in person when she came down to Florida for a visit. We became friends quickly, and soon found we had a lot in common. More importantly, we found our differences weren't critical. We spoke online, and on the phone, for many months, and grew closer. She invited me to visit her at her home in Chicago, I accepted gladly. From the moment she looked at me, when she came to pick me up at the airport, I knew she was the girl for me. Luckily, she has decided I'm the guy for her.

    Today, I asked her to marry me. She said yes. Now I'm looking forward to joining her family, doing my best to be a good husband to her, and a good stepfather to her daughter. I am so thankful, and lucky, to have met the lovely THL here, and to have been given the chance to be part of her life.

    I love you Emily.

    YOU TWO ARE SERIOUSLY JOKING ME!!!!!!!

    *** GOING FOR THE UNOPENED GLENROTHES ***

    The 1st shot is a toast to you two and the 2nd is going to calm my nerves that both of you've hidden it so well. In fact, so will the 3rd and 4th shots.

    well, CONGRATS to you both. a long and happy life!
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

    That would be Chicago, Pari.

    When all options were weighed, my daughter and job keep me here for now. Luckily enough, I am, that Rob is willing to come to us.

    Congratulations Rob and Emily, I can't really describe how happy I am for the two of you.

    I'm also rather proud of indirectly getting the two of you together. Maybe I should break into my personal rendition of Matchmaker, Matchmaker?

    Ok, so did you two do the real important stuff, like getting permission from the Head of House, aka the Cat?
