Sorry that blogging has been extra-crappy lately. Honestly, no Independence Day post? WTF?
Well, it’s like this.
A while back I met Debra Berliner. She was smart and cute and made the same sorts of jokes I liked to make and laughed when I made them and enjoyed the same sorts of projects I do. Our interests meshed and we had lots to talk about. So we spent time together.
We went to farmers markets. We went biking. We memorized Muppet movies and Decemberists songs. We knocked on doors in Reno and Las Vegas to get Obama elected. We looked at 3D images from Mars at NASA’s Ames facility. We went to the weddings of our gay and lesbian friends when they were legal. We knocked on doors in California to restore that right to our friends and family who now cannot marry.
We went to a garden here in Oakland, and I asked her if she’d marry me, and she said yes.
And now we’re spending a lot of time visiting parks where we can hold the ceremony, and interviewing caterers and thinking about the best day, and deciding what the rings should look like, and keeping track of all that will follow when all this planning is done, and the ceremony happens, and our life together commences.
Debbie and I will keep you updated as the process moves along. We expect the wedding to be next summer, somewhere in the Bay area. You’ll know more when we do. Thanks to you, dear readers, for welcoming this new member of our family, and for your indulgence as the planning and other adjustments to married life impoverish the blogging.
