29th Birthday -- Ninja Edition

Gen was so awesome wrapping all the presents that my family sent via amazon. And she got me awesome stuff too. She got me Ninja Gaiden II and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures.

Looks like now might be a good time to stock up on supplies to deal with jogger's nipple

GTA + Dexter

It's a little odd playing GTA IV while watching the first season of Dexter. And not for the obvious psychopath, serial murder connection. No, I've been thinking about how well Liberty City is a reproduction of New York, and all the Miami exterior shots in Dexter are reminding me how well it was replicated in Vice City.

Recovering well. I was able to sleep on my side last night. Lots of GTA IV. Ironman was sweet. Sneezing is still upleasant.

I Work With Awesome People

I'm going in for surgery today. I have gall stones and need to have my weak and evil organ removed. Hopefully it will serve as an example to the liver, so that it will continue to service my alcohol processing needs with no complaint. Anyway, I'm going to be stuck at home recovering for a week and I just got a surprise shipment from Amazon of three seasons of TV shows (all of which I've been dying to see) to help keep me from going stir crazy.

You guys are legend- ... wait for it ... -dary.

The Story

Saturday at lunch, I asked Gen if we had any plans for dinner. Our schedules where clear, so I asked her if I could set up some surprise dinner plans. And she did get a bit of a surprise.

I took her across the Golden Gate Bridge and into the Marin Headlands. There's a series of mostly untouched hills just across the bridge, and that was where our second date took place. I took her to an outcropping in the hills above an ocean side cliff, and set up a picnic. I got out some of her favorite snacky-bits and we ate dinner with the Golden Gate to our left and the sun setting to our right.

After we had finished dinner, with the sun just above the horizon I got the ring out of my jacked pocket, got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. I had barely spoken the words, when she answered "yes".

She Said "Yes"!
