WATERLOGGED SHOES, QUEBEC CITY and THE NERDDD or HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN or THE SPARKLE MAKES MY EYES BLEED TEARS OF HAPPINESS

So, kittens, hope you're well. As always, it's been way too long since I've blogged. Oh, I've been crazed, what with being whisked away to Quebec City last weekend by our favorite Manadian, MP, who, after a string of mishaps and misery, finally managed to propose to me. And now your socially awkward, perpetually single, on-her-way-to-spinsterdom Nerddd is actually engaged, which is hard to believe, I know but goodness, it's true. What is even more difficult to believe is the fact that I'm engaged to the Madlibbin' Parasailer but that, too, is very, very true and I thank the Blogger gods for making our match possible. 

It's surreal. 

I spent last week reading through my earliest correspondences with MP and if anyone would have told me then that this guy was my future husband, I would have choked on my saliva and, upon being able to breathe once again, would have said, "Nuh uh." 

Two years and two days after the very first time MP left a comment on my blog--my response to which was, interestingly, a prophetic, "Anonymous, do I know you?" (MP went by Anonymous in those early days)--here I am, engaged to the guy. 

Life's funny kittens; it's strange and absurd, full of twists and turns that never quite seem to make sense, until that one day when all of the scattered pieces fall into place and suddenly you can see that life is beautiful, that underneath the strangeness and absurdity there is this thing called kismet or naseeb or destiny. 

Call it what you will.  It is beautiful.

Congrats- I remember reading of the first exchanges between you and MP as you posted them on this blog and now your engagement. So true that the scattered pieces fall into place with due time and things that never made sense, suddenly do. Mubarak!

My god, do you know how long it takes to re-read your romance with MP including all the comments? Let me tell you, HALF a billable day :D Well spent.

Sab and MP, my heartfelt congrats to you both.

For those naysayers who spew negativity remember this, whatever decision she makes is between her and MP and any reservations she may have have been ironed out between her and her family and God. Judging isn't up to us.

Again, congrats darling Sabs.

SabilaK said...

Thanks everyone (minus the naysayers)! And MP sure knows a thing or two about billable hours Rubes!

Sabila, congratulations. It is so great to hear and it is so funny that you made the words 'propose' and 'engaged' so large...
