Let us celebrate!

I would like to take this opportunity to whole-heartedly congratulate my friend Alex on his engagement. He proposed last week to her and, to everyone's infinite surprise, she actually said "yes". (I wouldn't have!) To to my friend: I raise my glass to you. Congratulations!

Her freakin' big diamond.

Now, with that out of the way, I am free to reflect. I look around and see many people around me choosing to get married. I, myself, did it at one point (with results - regrettably - painful to all involved.) Would I ever do it again? I imagine some day I might, I guess. Perhaps I'm still living far too much for myself to ever be able to give that level of commitment. Perhaps the right person hasn't come along... or maybe they did, but not at the right time. Lots to speculate about and reflect on, but life marches inevitably forwards.

But enough about me. Cheers to you, Alex!

Is this the same Alex we both went to school with (I'm assuming so)? If so, Congrats Alex!

As somebody who's been married for going on 8 years now, it's all down hill from here ;-)

Seriously, though, congrats!
