the proposal – not a review

25 09 2009

proposalit’s now almost the end of september and i still have to come up with a killer marriage proposal!  i feel the ticking of the clock and seems to be speeding up.  liza doesn’t want me to propose before her exams because she’ll be distracted – like she has a choice!  lol!  she’s just lucky i’m a proficient procrastinator still thinking about it 😉

so first is a question of when.  what day?  is one day better than the next?  i don’t want her to see it coming although at this point anything i do will seem like it’s a lead-up to the big question popping event.  it’s going to be a bitch to try and surprise her.  i think my best bet is trying to get her girlfriends to get her out somewhere and me tagging along reluctantly.  that she may not suspect.  and then i spring a big party on her!  or do i try the low key deal?  or the romantical deal?  or the quarterback sneak?  f*ck!  i don’t know!!  this is way more stressful than i thought it’d be 😦

suggestions from you ethereal internet peeps?  i figure someone’s got to have a cool idea.  maybe i have to promote my blog enough to get people to read this and give me some unique proposal that’s never been done!

check this out!  i found possibly the lamest way an interesting way to propose ->  Marriage Proposal Jigsaw Puzzles!  lol!  ok, back to thinking…





yes dear. you’re right.

Top Gunlast night i went out to top gun in crystal mall.  it’s a hotpot restaurant that is pretty decent.  for about $30 [with tip included] you can eat all the seafood, meat, and veggies you want to cook.  pretty sly for whomever invented the hotpot restaurant…we prep everything and drop it off at your table and YOU do all the cooking!  lol!  oh well, it was delicious.

went out basically for my gf’s friend’s birthday.  in the past she’s accused me said i don’t go out with her and her friends at all and i totally disagreed with her!  there were times…i can’t really remember all of them…ok, maybe i don’t go out as often as she goes out with me and my friends!  :p  i figured in the end she was right and i should join her on occasion.  you should know though that her usual times out are no boys allowed girls nights, so i obviously don’t go.  honestly i sometimes don’t find i have much to talk about with her girlfriends…maybe we lack similar interests or a common background.  who knows.  maybe it’s because i don’t go out enough with them to create a good relationship dialogue.  hmmmm.  food for thought.

anyways, last night was cool.  i didn’t know most of the people there but nonetheless there was good conversation and i had a great time.  mostly though i think it made liza happy that i came out and socialized…now they know she has a flesh and blood boyfriend and hasn’t been making me up to keep herself from looking lonely.  lol!





another one bites the dust

just got engagedthis past sunday one of my good friends went through on his word and got engaged!  it’s unbelievable, and not, at the same time.  he’s been going out with his gf for years now and now that she’s done school and he’s fairly established in his career, he decided that, in the words of bruce buffer, the official announcer for the ufc:

‘”IT’S TIIIIIIIIIIMMMMMMMME!”

ok, he didn’t say it like that nor was that the sentiment.  all i know is that he went for it and is super happy he did 🙂

 

that being said, it now begs the question “when am i going to do it?”  thanks d-man!  [can you feel the oozing sarcasm!] lol!  i have a feeling that since you did it, that liza is going to expect it sooner from me.  not that i’m delaying it at all!  i’m not.  i just want to do things my way and have some fanfare to the whole ordeal 😉  i can’t lie to you and say i don’t feel the pressure now though.  i remember back when i was working in the call center and going out with this girl who also worked there.  every time i turned around either one of my friends or hers were getting married or having a baby!  crazy!  and she would lay on the pressure, concerned if we were going to get there too!  ugh.  needless to say i didn’t end up with her but that’s the last time i felt so much pressure to move along.  at least this time i believe i’m ready!  big difference!  lol!

 

i thought that i wouldn’t have to think about it until i got a new job but then i thought that this is definitely just procrastination talking.  i know that if i use that excuse that i’ll use the ‘i should wait until i’m settled in my new position’ excuse to even more prolong it.  i’m good!  i can actually manipulate any situation into an excuse if i want to.  a gift and a curse 😦

 

well, i guess i just wanted to write that i’m really happy for my buddy and his girlfriendnew fiance! 

 

when i think about it, i’m actually looking forward to joining the ranks of the ENGAGED soon my friends…soon indeed.
