How to get a sunburn

August 16th, 2006

    So Rita and I went out on Ken’s boat and to a Red Sox game on back to back weekends.  Needless to say both where great days, but both in the sun resulting in sun burns.  

Rita and I still haven’t made up our minds as to where exactly we are getting married or having the reception, but the date we are looking for is Aug 5th 2007, so don’t plan anything for that day.

Trip to the autoshow

Rita and I took a trip to the New York International Auto Show for the closing weekend.  It was a grand time, yet packed with people, we did get to see all the cool cars we can never afford. 






What happens in Vegas.

April 21st, 2006

Well contrary to popular belief we did not get married while in Vegas.  We did walk a lot and stood in line even more.  We even took a ride in a Chevy POS to the Hoover Dam and took what would later be dubed the “vomit rocket” over the Grand Canyon.

How did you propose?

January 22nd, 2006

Rita had said she wanted a hint that it was coming. 

So I decided to send her a gift every week for first three Tuesdays of November.  Each gift had a question that hinted to a location (Rockefeller Center).  The only thing was, the location name I was looking for was “Where I got engaged.” 

On Tuesday, the 7th of November, she received an fruit arrangement with the question:

“Where does an ancient Greek god still give light to the masses?”  She guessed the Olympics.

On Tuesday, the 14th of November, she received a Pajamagram (with peppermint pj’s) with the question:

“Where do 25,000 lights stand 100 feet tall?”  She guessed Rockefeller Center (real close!)

On Tuesday, the 21st of November, she received cashmere gloves and a hat with the question:

“Where are the streets named but no traffic flows?” She guessed Atlantis.

The last question I asked her was on November 26th, right in Rockefeller Center:

“Where are you right now?”

She knew I had already told her ”Rockefeller Center” was not the final answer, so she looked around for a minute thinking of new names for where we were standing.

Finally, she gave up and I pulled out the ring and said, “It’s where you got engaged.”

Rita’s first words after she saw the ring were, “What’s this one made out of?”  (I had been practicing with other things, like plastic spider rings from Halloween.)  When she saw the diamond on a platinum band, it all sunk in.
