[mood |indescribable]
[music |Peter Murphy - Love Hysteria - Indigo Eyes]

This Saturday, August 6th, 2005.
Fire burning in a hill
The lines are rocky rough
Red angles wait to pick remains
The cindered shoulder
Of confused men
Seperate from their awe
With grey desire
She looks out mad
Her soft grey indigo eyes
Indigo eyes ...
Asking
I asked deliriumdreams to marry me.
Her heaven is uncovered not
A black tree blocks his way
Her way is skating round a dome
(Her way is in dismay)
The playmate sings
Like Orphee in some thunder world
Asking to be bathed in light
To be exemplified
Like Orphee in some thunder world
Asking to be bathed in light
To be exemplified

With grey desire she looks out mad
Her soft grey indigo eyes

Saw her past
She had dug for trust
With blind infected hands
And wondered as the hurt bit hard
Why the sacred weren’t at hand
Only when her ears were deaf
To the angels light burst waves
She said yes.
Only when her ears were deaf
Did life turn from fog to fog
But not evil but estranged
But not evil but estranged

Indigo eyes, Indigo eyes
Indigo eyes, Indigo eyes

With grey desire
She looks out mad
Her soft grey
Indigo eyes
Indigo eyes
— Peter Murphy — Love Hysteria — "Indigo Eyes"
I love you, sweetie.

I love you too. And I still haven't stopped grinning like the cat who ate the canary.

Congraduations mon ami!

Thanks!

I'm still acclimating to my new status (Being Engaged) but it's nice so far. Will be meeting a bunch of little K's classmates (and presumably some of their parents) this coming weekend in Abq, so we'll see how that goes.

I finally got around to writing up more info on what's going on with the two of us; if you're going to be in town on Thanksgiving weekend, we'd be delighted to have you join us!

[shockingly girlish squealing omitted]

Hee! Glad we could give your "female hormones" a quick test. Wouldn't want them to get out of practice, now would we? :)

And thank you again for the insanely cute little fluffy kissing owls. deliriumdreams and I are indeed both night owls, so it's all the more fitting. :)

I finally wrote up more info about us and what our plans are for the near future; given my partial and too-short answers to some of your questions, I thought you'd be interested: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

Anyway. Here's hoping that I don't give her reason to call it off in the next few months. :)

invited

(Link)

And just so you know, you would of course be welcome at the November party too -- I'm just worried that I won't be able to find hosting for people who are coming in out of town; my place is full up, and it's a horrible weekend to be travelling (USA Thanksgiving).

Just wanted to be sure you didn't feel that I was inviting others and not you -- the people getting explicit call-outs for the November get-together are local San Diego people. I explain it a bit better in my long writeup, but my hope is that the Southern California folks will be able to make the party this November, and then (if they want) they can join in the bigger but much further-away party in a year or two...

We'd certainly love to see you that weekend, or any other weekend for that matter! Aren't you getting the itch for a Las Vegas trip? :)

Re: invited

Aw but wouldn't that be the perfect excuse and opportunity to get to meet you two at last indeed! Unfortunately my soul is completely owned from September through December by my job - I'm lucky they even let me go home at night to sleep. You'll just have to have a wonderful time without me and we'll just have to have an impomptu wonderful time to re-celebrate when I do finally get to meet cha.

Thank you so much, hon. :)

Wait, I don't think that's a good subject for anything related to a marriage. *shrug*

Thanks for the woot! Funny that I pretty much never thought this would happen to me (although I'm sure that almost everyone feels that way!)

Anyway, I wrote up lots more info on deliriumdreams, our past history together, and our plans for the next few months or years. If you're interested:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

... although it's pretty stupidly long. You're definitely invited to the Saturday party here in San Diego if you're in town that weekend. (Heh. If many of you LJ people plan on showing up, I might want to have a meet-n-greet with you before you just appear at the wedding. :)

Congratulations!

Thanks!

I'm still getting used to it, even if I'm the one that started this particular change in our relationship. (Add the normal getting-married jitters to a psyche that's spent the last 20 years getting up in the morning, looking in the mirror, and thinking: "yup, still fat dumb and ugly." ... quite a bit of adjustment is in order.)

But she claimed I'd need a crowbar to get rid of her; I thought a proposition might be gentler, but noooooo. Oh well, I guess I'm in for a fate worse than ... ooh, SHINY!

Anyway, wanted to thank you, and mention that I finally got around to finishing the FAQ on she and I. If you're very bored, here it is: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

If you're in town for Thanksgiving weekend, you'd be very welcome to join us for the Saturday celebration. :)

Yay FAQ! It's very cute and sweet.

If I am not in Phoenix being scrutinized by my boyfriend's relatives, he and I would love to join you for the celebration :)

DRINK!

(Link)

congratulations!

Thank you, oh high and powerful Drink Mistress! :)

Heh. That's one compatibility I perhaps did not call out in as strong of terms as I should have -- deliriumdreams can nearly match me drink for drink, one more reason to love her. :)

You'll probably see it on your normal friends' page, but in case you miss it, I wrote up a FAQ on our engagement...

Stop looking at me like that.

Anyway: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

If you happen to be heading out here to California for Turkey Day Weekend, please stop by; we'd love to meet you in person. For that matter, it's looking like we might do the Central Coast with a day or two in San Francisco for Christmas / New Years -- if you're out for the holidays, let us know!

Good luck with the boy, and take care! :)

Aww, thanks sweetie! *hugs you back*

You realize this just makes it more important that you manage to meet her soon, yes? :)

Anyway, I wrote up a FAQ (sigh) on our engagement and plans so far; it'll probably show up in your friends' page, but if you want instant gratification (smirk): http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

As I've told others, I won't turn anyone away from the party this November, but I probably won't be able to offer much help on places to stay or transportation. The big celebration will be a different story, though.

Also also wik! If you have any plans to make it home for the winter holidays, deliriumdreams and I are hoping to be up in the Central Coast (visiting the couple which includes jinglechelle, your clone with the British accent!) If you're in the neighborhood, it'd be wonderful to get together. :)

*hugs* Thanks again, gorgeous.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Heh. Thanks!

Thought you'd be amused to know that I did the actual proposal (such as it was, but hey, it had the magic phrase "will you marry me" in it somewhere) at the San Diego Renaissance Faire. And I didn't have a proper ring, so she got an engagement leather collar. Ahem.

Anyway! If you have idle curiosity, or are just bored, feel free to peruse the FAQ I wrote up... talks a bit more about the past that deliriumdreams and I share, and what our plans are for the next bit: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

Thanks very much!

Means even more that you took the time to post even in the middle of your August horribilis... Very much appreciated!

I finally got around to writing up more info on what's going on: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

My San Diego LJ buddies are welcome to crash the party that Saturday after the JP ceremony -- if enough of the LJ people are interested, I might try to do a smaller LJ "meet and greet" sometime earlier. But if you just show up for the party, that's totally cool too. :)

(For that matter, I strongly suspect that the few of us that are doing the JP ceremony will retire to The Field for most of the afternoon of Wednesday, Nov 23rd -- and we'd be delighted if others joined us there. :)

Kick Ass!
[User Picture]From: tkil
2005-08-30 07:59 am (UTC)

don't kick the tkil!

(Link)

Kick Ass!

Heh. Yeah, I'm at least as amazed as anyone else about this whole thing -- that I asked, that she said yes, that we're still even in contact some 13 years after we were introduced.

But I think what matters there is that she said "yes".

And it most likely means that I'll be moving to Albuquerque either next year or 2007 at the latest... so lots more hanging out with the gang in LC. And crash space for the LC gang up in Abq, for that matter. :)

I finally finished up a little FAQ that's been bouncing in my head (and on my account) for a while; gives a bit more background on our history and our immediate plans: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

The San Diego party is open to all, but I probably won't be able to help out with crash space. The big party next year (or 2007 :) will hopefully be in a place that lets me drag in as many people as want to show up, for a couple of days of partying. We'll see.

Congratulations to you both. :)

Thanks!

Hopefully I can keep my head far enough out of my ass to never become a couples' counselling case study... :)

It's more than a bit scary, though.

Wrote up a bit more detail about she and I; the parts about my fears and hopes will probably have you chuckling a bit... http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

crazy news

(Link)

What wonderful news for you both! :)

Thanks! We still have occasional arguments about which one of us is the lucky one, and which is the sucker ... but we've mostly reached détente on that topic.

There's a fair chance that deliriumdreams and I will be able to make it up to SLO over the winter holidays; I hope you're around, as it'd be great to see you again, and I'm sure you and she will get along fabulously. And even if we don't make it up there for the holidays, we have a standing invite with L & C to visit one of these weekends... just not sure when it'll be!

Also writing to say that I finally finished up a rough FAQ on the two of us; if you curious for more background, and a sketch of where we think we're going: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

Take care!

Thanks! It's incredible (and incredibly touching) how many of my LJ-only friends are sharing their good will with us. Makes me want to throw a party in each of their towns -- and Denver would be at the top of the list, that's for sure!

Also, replying to people here to let them know that I finally finished writing up a FAQ on what's going on with deliriumdreams and myself. If you're curious: http://www.livejournal.com/users/tkil/43477.html

(Feel free to copyedit it. *grin*)

Good luck with the situation at your workplace, and thanks again for the warm wishes.

Aww!

Sorry to disappoint you that I haven't bought her diamonds (yet).

And hopefully you're also a bit amused that it happened eventually, even if it took 13 years? :)

We love you.

And that's why I called you out as a big softie at the end of the tkil and deliriumdreams FAQ. :)

But again: Thank you, thank you, beyond measure, for introducing us.
