Even More Utter Nonsense

April 7th, 2007

I was going to review manga today, but got caught up in something entirely stupid that I feel like sharing just because.

Totally off-topic for this site, but it’s my site, and the news is about me…

After being together for almost 24 years, my wife and I are undergoing an official ceremony on Tuesday. NJ now allows civil unions that guarantee all the many legal things a marriage does, and despite our commitment to never commit to anything…here we are. No ceremony, no pomp and circumstance or anything, just signing papers. And dessert.

But after a long, rather bizarre day full of much good (thank you Ted!) and extremely bad (email from some desperate soul in Japan who is stranded, lost and alone) Serge, Sean and Adam convinced me to make a “wedding registry” thingball on Amazon for myself and the wife. (She’s busy adding $500 truffles even as I type.)

Anyway, I’m not saying you *have* to look at it, or even that you *ought* to. But, if you’re the kind of person who is either a voyeur and wants to see what stuff we want, or are the kind of person who just loves all this nonsense, here’s the link:


Some of the stuff on there is, yes, a joke. I don’t actually expect anyone to buy us a 52″ inch flat screen HDTV. LOL But weddings and civil unions live in fantasy land, so there you go. :)

    A tank? o.O That’s… that’s all I really have to say. @.@ Well, besides congrats on your joining! :D But still, lol a tank. XD

  2. And yes, the tank is a joke too. But you have to read all the comments at that entry – it’s hysterical.

    And thank you. :-)

    Congratulations! The Kaorin screencap was soooo good too. LOL

  6. Thank you Zyl! And I’m glad someone noticed the screencap. I thought it captured my feelings perfectly. :-)

    Excuse the intrusion on all the 恋人話… (cute as it may be) ^_~
    Congratulations and all that. It’d be hilarious if we could actually flood the streets with flowers and have jets fly overhead, but alas, a tank (I mean cookbook…) will have to do. Hopefully a tasty alternative anyways.

    Yeah, I was kind of hoping no one would notice that…lol

    Many thanks to you and everyone else for their kind thoughts and generosity.
