Yesterday, I read a blurb in Newsweek about happy marriages.  It said that the “happiest newlyweds” were the couples who entered into their marriages with an “irrational optimism” about their partner.

Well.  I don’t even know what they think they’re talking about.

Irrational.  Hah.

I have the most blissful marriage I could have ever possibly imagined and my optimism is based on pure, scientific rationalism.

Is Atticus the most beautiful man who ever walked the earth?

Yes, obviously.

Is Atticus more benevolent, kind, and good than the bodhisattva of compassion* herself?


Is Atticus the most sexy and most scholarish (since they are always interrelated) sort of dude in the world?

You’re kidding, right?  Why do you even have to ask?  The “yes” meter on that question is off the charts.

Is Atticus practically perfect in every single way?

Move over Mary Poppins.


I’m just trying to say that you shouldn’t believe everything you read in Newsweek…


And a Happy 3rd Engageversary to Atticus and me.

Look! A super cheesy picture of the day we got engaged! March 8, 2008


*  Whenever you’re down, just say her name outloud a couple times and it will cheer you right up.  Avalokiteśvara, Avalokiteśvara, Avalokiteśvara…

  1. We got engaged on that exact same day! Just curious, was the line up with Int’ women’s day intentional or coincidence?

  2. Pinto

    Total, happy coincidence on our part. Yours?

  3. Intentional on his, because he likes over thinking things (so do I, but that’s not the point.)
