Did I mention I'm getting married? Yeah, I'm getting married. In March.

It's interesting, the reactions that telling people I'm getting married elicits. Lots of congratulations, much of the time tinged by a blend of surprise and incredulity. Much of that, I gather, is people going, "Wow, more and more people I know are getting married or having kids," and the we're-not-kids-anymore realisation that goes with it.

We're going to have the ceremony at the Bloedel Conservatory at the peak of Little Mountain, better known as Queen Elizabeth Park (or "Queen E" to locals). We've got the space booked and the marriage commissioner arranged, and now it's just the details to figure out.

So yeah, I'm getting married.

Congratulations! Marriage is a beautiful thing, and it couldn't have happened to two better people. Cam and I will have to get together to plan something dastardly for you, perhaps involving copious amounts of port and buttercookies.

The virtual tour looks amazing, Koi fish!

The koi are great. Me mum tells me that when I was a wee one I'd love to chase them around, following on the bank. (That place has been there for ages without much change!)

Oh, wow... the Conservatory is gorgeous!!

Oh, goodness, it's going to be great. On the way back from the alter the two of you will have to stop to smell the flowers. =)

Definitely. And take pictures of them. :-)

Oh, I never said "congrats" guys. So congrats guys!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.......

Wow, more and more people I know are getting married or having kids.

I join the congratulations group. And open up the "damn, why can't we get married yet, curse university" group.

... the conservatory has a silly meaning in German, by the way.

Does it? It's named after someone named Prentice Bloedel, who gave the donation that paid for its construction.

What's it mean?

Congrats to you both!

Well, not to be all predictable, but congratulations!

Thank you! I can sympathise retroactively with your own planning headaches now. We're going for very simple too, so it's not too bad. I can't imagine what people go through for the traditional North American wedding, though.

Congratulations again... and it's totally an epidemic. Did you know, Mouse is getting married soon too?

In my case it's like, *blink* I didn't even know you were dating someone. At all. Seroiusly.

Mazeltov!

I can be pretty cagey online about my personal life. But for the record, I'm dating two someones. The other is one half of our Best People of Honour. :-D

I follow the totally stereotypical reaction you described. Congratulations, and goodness sakes, I feel older, now that everyone around me is getting married (or already is).

As you're one of my youngest friends, and as I am myself embarking upon one of those "adult" things, it's not particularly shocking to me that you're getting married.

Congratulations, by the way :)

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

:D

Hey you! Haven't heard from you in ages. How are you?

I miss seeing you around school. We should get together sometime.
