Some Days…

Some days are, indeed, better than others.

On this day, June 14, 2009:

  1. Swiss discovered, unhappily, that another dog was using her sacred pooping grounds. Disappointment was greatly diminished by the gift of a Greenie.
  2. Colorado was blessed with more rain and temperate weather…
  3. ...along with an impressive thunderstorm, a little hail, and, probably another funnel cloud. Since last weekend, we’ve had something on the order of eight tornados touch down around the area.
  4. I spent a beautiful morning driving up to Golden Gate Canyon park near Golden, enjoying the lush scenery. There is a scenic overlook in the park where you have an amazing view of what seems to be the entirety of the Colorado Rockies. If you’ve never been to Colorado, when you do manage to take the trip you should spend half a day hiking some of the paths in the park and then drive up to the overlook. It is, undeniably, one of the most beautiful sights in the world. The pictures on the state site hardly do it justice.
  5. And in the park, in a small, very private ceremony, we were pronounced man and wife. And I kissed the bride.
  6. Wedding bouquet courtesy of the generous and kind MM.

Thank you!

And, dang, you’re speedy.

on Jun 14 2009 @ 07:48 PM

Wow. Maybe I should have checked my mail earlier.

Gratz, dude. Achievement Unlocked: Ball & Chain.

Congratulations, you Undead bastard. Long life, success and happiness to you and the wife.

BTW, Me & the wife will be out for GABF in september. We shall drink like kings.

on Jun 14 2009 @ 10:55 PM

Congrats to the both of you!

on Jun 15 2009 @ 03:12 AM

And, dang, you’re speedy.

For some reason I just had a feeling I needed to look in over here again yesterday. A disturbance in the Force or something. Heh.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 04:57 AM

Now she wont have to marry my brother in law!
Tell her I said that.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 07:20 AM

Congratulations on your personal triumph of hope over experience.

I had this really cool next-gen iPhone I had smuggled out of Cupertino that was going to be your wedding present. But you didn’t invite me, so you get nothing. Nothing!

But seriously, congratulations, man.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 07:52 AM


I promise not to cry.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 09:06 AM

Oh, and thanks for the information on dog etiquette ...

and in that theme, the spam word is “movement46” ...

on Jun 15 2009 @ 02:39 PM

Thanks, all, for the kind words and funny words.

Matt, I let her know and I couldn’t tell whether she was relieved or disappointed.

Robin, I’m convinced that my blog has ESP. Those turing words often turn out to be surprisingly appropriate.

Robert, I would have invited you, but I didn’t invite anyone (except, of course, her and the gentleman who performed the ceremony). It was truly, truly a very private ceremony.

Matt, be sure to give me a call when you two are in town. We’ll take you out to dinner and booze. You can mock us for our slowly collapsing football team. But do it gently; I think this pain is going to last for a while.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 04:41 PM

So where are you registered ... I mean, where do Zombyboy’s register?

on Jun 15 2009 @ 04:55 PM

Once again, congratulations, and don’t worry, the events at the bachelor party will remain secret.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 06:39 PM

Heheh. You are so going to get me in trouble…

on Jun 15 2009 @ 06:58 PM

Congrats, ZB, and best wishes, to you and the W-phrase as well.

You sly bastard. Now I’m going to really have to buy you a drink.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 07:13 PM

Billll...ll..., three can keep a secret only if two of them are dead.  There were more than three at that party.  And while you seem to be trying to commit part-by-part suicide, the rest of us seem to be in better shape.

Dot connecting is left as an exercise for the reader.


And Z and WoZ, may the rest of your life together be as beautiful as your wedding day.

on Jun 15 2009 @ 07:35 PM

Well, considering I’ll be out for GABF and will pretty much be drinking constantly from either Wednesday night or Thursday morning (depending on my flight) until our arrival back in Dago, booze probably won’t be a problem. But dinner’s definitely on. As for football mockery, we’ll see. I need to save some up for my friend Doug. Hockey team mockery is penciled in though (Barring any very shrewd moves by the Avs/Asinine moves by the Stars)

on Jun 15 2009 @ 08:03 PM

Lord! Mega-congrats! Send me updated address info so I may send along a gift!

on Jun 15 2009 @ 09:17 PM

I guess I must have checked your site last shortly before you posted this. Boy, miss a day and see what happens? If I hadn’t been at the bachelor party, I wouldn’t have known this was happening.

on Jun 16 2009 @ 08:49 AM

I’m glad its this century.

on Jun 16 2009 @ 01:45 PM

Congrats, slightly belated of course.

And your “bachelor party” was a blast, and good to see you again.

on Jun 17 2009 @ 07:44 PM

You didn’t even invite me to the BACHELOR party?  That’s it....we’re breaking up.

on Jun 17 2009 @ 10:05 PM

Jed, thank you very much.

Doug, “WoZ"--I’m keeping that. I like it.

Wheels, I kept this quiet because I didn’t want much fuss--but I also didn’t want to miss letting you all know that it had happened.

“I’m glad its this century.”

I do believe I have been chastised. I also believe that darling girl would agree with the sentiment…

Thanks, Cheryl. And thanks for providing the entertainment--those hiccups were terrifying. It’s always good to see you and your dad.

And, Mr. Lady, no reason to be hatin’. There was no real bachelor party; the folks at the Gathering of Geeks with Guns (G3) of brilliant minds didn’t even know that I was getting hitched until midway through their bratwursts. And when Doug offered to jump out of a cake and strip for my pleasure, I knew it was time to put down the bottle and leave.* I’m smart that way.

* - This, of course, never happened. Doug would never strip for my pleasure. He’s selfish that way.

on Jun 18 2009 @ 09:08 AM

Oh, frabjous day! Best wishes to you both!

It won’t hurt you one bit. And. . . tax savings. heh.

May you have many years of joy.

on Jun 18 2009 @ 09:50 AM

"This, of course, never happened. Doug would never strip for my pleasure.”

Damn skippy.  I only offer to jump out of cakes and strip for my pleasure.  That’s how you know it was made up.

on Jun 18 2009 @ 10:23 AM

"As for football mockery, we’ll see. I need to save some up for my friend Doug.”

That’s fair.  Since the Broncos are slipping down toward the nether (or “Kansas City") regions, mockery is warranted.


on Jun 18 2009 @ 10:25 AM


Of Geeks.


I leave the country for two short years and this is what you people resort to? 

(Also, holy fuck I’m sad I missed that.  Kinda)

on Jun 18 2009 @ 11:28 AM

BTW, the decrepit Volvo is less decrepit now, thanks to my throwing $300 at it yesterday. I’m pretty sure that means I have to go send lead downrange sometime soon. I’m pretty sure I have the transmission problem sussed out now, and it’s nominally a $0 repair, since I already have what I need on hand.

So, since you mentioned Geeks with Guns, I’m wondering just how early everyone gets up on the weekends. It’s better to hit the range early, ya know.

on Jun 18 2009 @ 03:32 PM

Also, I just discovered I’m out of ketchup. But I don’t have a twitter account.

Mr. Lady, we were doing “blogershoot” get-togethers while you were still in-country. Which reminds me that I ought to ping Wadcutter more frequently. Anyways, we haven’t “resorted” to anything. We (most of us) have been clinging to our guns and/or religion since before it was even fashionable.

on Jun 18 2009 @ 03:43 PM

Jed, darling, if there’s any one thing that being the mother of boys has taught me, it’s that most men have been clinging to their “guns” since before they could walk.  Also, *sigh* I miss you and your ketchupless, twitterless randomocity.

on Jun 23 2009 @ 08:24 AM

"This is my rifle, this is my gun...”

on Jun 23 2009 @ 08:28 AM

Well, if my hand weren’t so tired, I’d probably write more.

on Jun 23 2009 @ 06:10 PM

A very late Congratulations and Best Wishes. Great news! On the other hand, you should have beaten me to the punch by years. As it is, I beat you by many months. Really, all the best.
