    Red face So I'm engaged now

    Yup, after 3 years I thought it was time to pop the big question. So I figured on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris would be a great idea...

    The fake Eiffel Tower in the Paris hotel in Las Vegas while I was at CES that is...

    Heres the fake proposal since the real picture came out blurry.

    The view:



    And the ring:

    Where I got it:

    Has a 1.5 carat stone in it.
    And of course, the beautiful bride-to-be at Dick's Last Resort with me and Elvis too!



    The wedding will be in summer of '09.

    All of my las vegas pics are here (not for slow connections):

    She could have done better but you'd do in a pinch I guess.

    Wow! That's really awesome! It's great you've found somebody you want to spend the rest of your life with! I hope the wedding plans and the actual wedding go well for you! And especially the marriage afterwards! You'll both definitely be in my prayers!!

    Congrats; big step there, but nice choice; she's beautiful.

    Forget about anything like that Fantasy thing after the wedding.

    Lots of goodies you could have bought with the money spent in that ring though.....not sure your priorities are straight :)

    And here I thought you might actually like having sex and then you go do something like this....

    Congrats! ;)
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them. We not only acquired a vast population of morons, we have inculcated all morons, old or young, with the doctrine that the decent and industrious people of the country are bound to support them for all time.-Menkin
