Lady Pennywhistle - Back with a vengeance! [for a certain, limited value of Vengeance; actual amounts of Vengeance may vary]

smiley - yawn


So, haven't been around here in a very long time (my PS is woefully un-updated, and will woefully remain that way, and I'm not even gonna _think_ about all the backlog...). I got all sorts of RL stuff to take care of, and I spend way too much time on Facebook, and this place sort of slipped away. smiley - sadface
I know many others aren't around anymore, too. Online communities do that. But a few of you still are here, so I figured that this bit of news is worth sharing; after all, this is where it all started - this is where Dan and I first met (or "met", but hey, online definitely counts). We've now been together for about 12 years smiley - yikessmiley - wowsmiley - loveblush and we've had all sorts of ideas to solve the long-distance thing, but nothing that worked well. But we're still working on it - specifically, we've now come to the conclusion that since in the next few years I can't see myself leaving Israel (PhD, work, some family stuff I won't go into right now), it's probably most reasonable if Dan comes here. Maybe after a few years we'll both move to the US, but in the meanwhile we can at least start our life together.
(smiley - erm The biological clock stuff is a terrible cliché, so I kinda hate to be thinking in those terms, but, well... yeah, we're not getting any younger.smiley - erm)

So to that end, in two weeks, I'll be travelling back to the Pacific Northwest for a much-needed four-week vacation, and at some point during those four weeks we will drop by the courthouse and get married, in order to start the process that will, at a yet-undetermined point later (but hopefuuly not _too much_ later), enable him to come live here.

It's basically just a technical thing - just getting a piece of paper for logistical purposes - but it still makes me happy, which seems a good reason to share it.

smiley - biggrin

smiley - love

Back when I joined FB, I decided that I want to keep that sphere separate from my h2g2 sphere... smiley - erm umm, I think I had a reason for _that_, but not sure what it was exactly. Probably because I had more family there, and friends from school and such, and it felt odd to combine these two worlds.

Not sure how much that's relevant now, both because I'm mainly not on h2g2 and because my FB circle of friends has mostly turned into a bunch of awesome Israeli geeks (I've become part of that community in recent years, and loving it) and that's no longer so different from the h2g2 crowd. Still feels a bit odd, but maybe not as rational anymore. I dunno. Will need to think about it.

Wow! Congratulations.

12 years!? It seems both so recent and so long ago. Years are definitely accelerating for me, especially now that I'm half a centenarian. But h2g2 has changed so much in those 12 years. (not for the better, I'm sad to say... I do miss how active it was a decade ago.)


Anyway, I hope your plans work out well. Oh, and throw away that biological clock. http://youtu.be/6YIz9jZPzvo

Thanks! And, umm, Elektra, let's wait a bit with the children, okay? I mean, not that it's not an issue at all, but still, it'll be a while before we've figured out our life together to that degree. So the blessing can wait. smiley - winkeye
