Now I own a lot of programming books. And pretty much without fail, in the front of these monolithic manuals is a short praise for the authors wife/kids dogs etc etc. Now you have to ask your self how romantic that is. I mean being thanked in the front of a geek bible just wouldn’t/shouldn’t cut it in the romance stakes. Shame guy.
None the less they all do it, go check some out, they all have it there somewhere, bold as brass. I have to say I think this is pure cheese.
But something happened to me this week, my beautiful girl asked me to marry her, and I accepted. Leap year thing apparently. I didn’t know that, and thought it was a big joke, not quite the reaction she was expecting, but I soon realised the error of my ways, and quickly accepted.
And I felt I just had to write a little about it, as it’s a good thing, which I feel I want to share. So I can see why these reference manual authors do it now, it’s something you feel good about that you don’t mind people seeing. That’s my new opinion any how.
I first met my lady 10 years ago, when I had been single for more time than I care to remember, I had basically almost decided to become a monk, and had certainly given up hope in all woman of the species. But then as luck would have it I found someone that that was daft enough to like me as much as I liked her, and bada bing, bada boom, I found a girl to share my room. And have now ended up being with my girl for 10 years now.
Sarah has been a constant source of support for me through some good and not so good times. She is my rock. And without her, I strongly believe I would have ended up having a different path in life, a somewhat more self destructive one, and ended up in all sorts of bother. She made sure that didn’t happen. I have now become a more rounded individual, this is all down to me girl, basically she’s the raddest thing since sliced bread…And I just want to let you all know that.
I basically have no idea how many people read this blog, or whether this is a good / bad thing or maybe too personal a thing for a blog, I just don’t know…But since it’s my blog I’m just going to do what I like.
Heres me and my girl Sarah, babe you rock.
And heres some more
So if you are out there and don’t have one of these here girl things, I reckon you should give them a go, they are pretty cool
