Engaged!

Post by witchfinder » Mon Jun 10, 2013 5:42 am

For those of you that didn't see the news this weekend on Facebook (or don't use it) I'm pleased to announce that after more than ten years of being together I finally asked my long-suffering girlfriend Anna to marry me. The proposal took place in Philadelphia outside the Art Museum, just a few dozen yards from the famous 'Rocky steps'! :D

2 weeks later at Funspot she set a world record for a female player on Bank Panic, with over a million points, thus confirming that she is definitely the woman for me... :wink:

Congrats ! Sounds like it should be a great match as you've already seen her for 10 years (I know some people who get engaged after a few weeks !)

Glad you had a great holiday. I can imagine the wedding tune will be a retro tune ? Eg Mario theme or something ? ;)

Many congratulations! Great news!

If you do do a retro-gaming themed wedding, perhaps the moment of ring exchanging could be accentuated by holding the mrs above your head, like Link does when he acquires something.

Donkey Kong opening music maybe? ;)

There won't be too much geekiness at the actual ceremony, but we do have a couple of movie themes in mind for music. Also there will definitely be some gaming at the evening do... :)

No JAMMA cab to play it in at home though... Also the dedicated cab is totally different as the CP slopes downwards towards the monitor glass!

I hate these 'death' threads. They're so depressing. RIP Matt, it was nice knowing you!
