But Aubrey dear, I've already bought you diamonds this week

I totally said that last night in a very snooty voice. It was said at the Salt Lake Capital Theater shortly before the performance of Macbeth that we attended (boring, it was an opera and they took a lot of liberty with the story). They had some blingy stuff out at the merch table (or whatever you would call those tables) for the rich folk to buy. Best part was that I actually had bought her diamonds that week. Why did I do that? Because I'm totally marrying her in January and the ring (which I had custom made) is finally done.

All of you are probably saying "So wait, didn't post for the last two months because you've been too busy falling in love and getting engaged? Oh, that's okay then." and you'd be totally right. I'm glad we're on the same page and that you're okay with it. Some things are just more important than broadcasting myself onto the internet.

So anyway, yes. I'm getting married. You may be invited. We'll have to discuss it. Who am I marrying? None other than Aubrey (as noted in the title, that's her on the right!), the very same Aubrey that attended Food Inc. with me a couple months ago. After the movie and such we had a great chat and things pretty much picked up from there. Now you might be asking "Hold on, you're already engaged and two months ago was only like you're thrid or fourth date?" to which I say, "Actually, we got engaged about a month ago, I just never told you, suckahs!" That's just how it worked out, and I couldn't be happier. Aubrey would like me to add that we've known each other for over a year, which is supposed to make it look like we spent more time together before we decided to get hitched. Don't let it fool you though, we hadn't so much as had a conversation until I asked her out in May (but then a bike accident got in the way).

Other updates: I'm switching back to pre-med in school because that's what I actually want to do (wish me luck). Turns out being engaged isn't conducive to good grades, but I'm working on that. My brother and his wife had their first child this week, which makes me the uncle of four now. AFI (one of my favorite bands) put out a new album this week, and it's actually pretty dang good. Cafe World is the best Facebook game ever, totally killing the farm games. If you feel like you deserve a wedding invite (or at least an announcement) and we haven't talked about it yet, you should probably mention it now.

Two-plus months between posts. I assumed you had gone "offline". Howver, considering the content of this post,all is forgiven. No shot of the custom-made ring? Shame on you.

That is forthcoming.

Love the post. Love the photo of Aubrey. I've become rather envious of her sweater collection.

Adhis said...

Awwwwwwww.... she is really CUTE!

And - AND! - she has a lower half to her face! That's an unexpected plus since we Village Nerds have only been led to believe that the guy she's gonna marry only has a forehead and eyes.

Um ... fact, you had a conversation sometime in March when one day she came and gave you and me a ride home from work. Just to remind you -- you guys clicked even then, even if only I noticed it.

And we couldn't be happier for you!

Wow. Aubrey looks like the kind of young lady any Momma would be proud to have her son be "totally marrying."
Beautiful smile and hair, and she looks like she could totally whup your butt in a Cuteness Contest.

Did your ADHD medication wear off on the last paragraph, Cooldude? Didn't your English Composition teachers ever mention staying on-topic for each blog entry? Mine didn't, because the Internet hadn't been invented yet when I was in school.

But I digress... best of luck to a wonderful, sweet couple as you prepare to embark on your married life together. May you have a long, healthy, happy, joyous marriage!

Yay! Congratulations! I mean, I already congratulated you in person, but now that I've done it on your blog, it's, like, official. You have been officially congratulated.

After checking all my usual putting-off-doing-what-I'm-supposed-to websites and still not feeling like doing what I'm supposed to, I thought I'd check your blog for the first time in two months. Huge congratulations to you and the lucky girl!
