I’m Engaged!

Yes, faithful readers, it is true! I have asked a very lovely lady to marry me! I hadn’t actually spoken to her before, but she had noticed the binoculars and listening devices, so naturally, she had to say yes…

But seriously, earlier tonight, I asked Raquel (who comments here occasionally) to be mine forever. She’s beautiful, fun, and the best person I know, and I’m just lucky that she hasn’t figured out how much beneath her I am.

I’ve been too busy for the last day to post (sorry, biggest Google news weekend of the year vs. biggest decision of my life = no contest), and I’ll be in Vermont all this week snowboarding at Smuggler’s Notch, so I’ll only be posting at night (probably using expensive in-room net access or leeched wi-fi). Thankfully, through all this, Miel has been saving my ass, posting roughly eight thousand times yesterday, and he’s going to help out however he can this week as well. You can thank him by visiting his blog.

There’s a nice engagement party in a week and a half (any local bloggers, feel free to join the post-party bar crawl), and then, back to work. The ring I bought should be plenty to tie her down till the summer.

Oh, and Raquel loves me so much, that despite not being at all a tech geek (she’s into the life sciences), she tries commenting on my posts sometimes, so go easy on her when she asks, “What does RSS do?”

Maybe I’ll start a wedding blog.

  4. Jason Schramm Says:

    And does she have to take your name? I don’t know if I like the sound of Raquel Weinberg.

  5. Nathan Weinberg Says:

    Jason, we’ve been together for almost four years. She’s practically signing my last name as her own already! This has been a long time coming.

    Adam: Eventually. I’m too busy packing to leave for now.
