She Said Yes!

She’s been something of a staple of this site for the last two years, between inspiring various articles and showing off her Halloween costumes, but now my girlfriend is going to eventually be Mrs. Unreality.

You may not have noticed due to the fact I had about 100 posts prewritten for the last two weeks, but I was out of town on vacation over the holidays, and I ended up proposing to my girlfriend on New Year’s. No, it wasn’t anything fabulously geeky (no Pokeball ring box and I did not say “I choose you!”), but it was still pretty cool and she did somehow say yes, and was nowhere near as bummed as she is in this picture.

So yeah, just a bit of a personal note as I like the site to actually be a reflection of who I am and what’s going on in my life, and this was a pretty big deal. Now, back to business as usual!

    Congratulations, Paul!

    I just wanted to add that it would be pretty hard for people to not notice you were gone last week. Most days only had two nattyb articles, with none of your articles posted.

  • SickP

    Gratz! I just got married 6 months ago. Having a girlfriend for many years is great, but if she’s as cool as she seems it can only get better. I’m here everyday, and I know a happy Paul is a good Paul.

    Your new years sounds better than mine. I got walked in on by my parents while we were making our own clone army.

  • SickJim

    Congratulations to both of you! 😀 enjoy!

  • Ty

    As one of my “Check first thing every morning” sites, definitely have to throw my congratulations hat into the ring, Paul! I hope many years of happiness for you and future Mrs. Unreality.

    @ Dont be a Goof

    Who the hell gives his girlfriend/wife money for her birthday? Have you done that yourself or has this happend to you. Because that would either be ridiculous or really sad.

    I’ve never commented, but I read daily.
    Never felt too inclined to comment, but this post makes me want to say

  • Jim

    Congratulations Paul. Now you’ll have to do an awesome set of wedding photos. Zombie and ninja are taken but you could do zombie ninjas.

  • I want to add my congrads, but I think the wedding photos must contain zombie pokemon ninja’s IN SPACE!!! (my son is 6 I’m still a newbie to this thing you call pokemon, there has to be a ninja somewhere in their universe)

  • truant

    mazal tov!

  • mopery

    Congrats, man!

  • Congrats. Wish you all the best in your married life.

    How did you propose?

  • J5

    @ OTWarrior

    Probably the same way I did, with a sock full of quarters and a menacing look.

  • Jim

    Congrats. Looks aren’t as important as compatibility so the fact that Mrs Unreality is a total hottie is just icing on the cake. Lucky bastard! 🙂

  • Shiki

    I just got back from my vacation, so i’ve been catching up on the site. Congrats to you both, i wish you a very happy life together!
