So this last week I got engagged to be marred. For the uninitiated, this is when the male part of the species goes up to female part of the species and says, will you be my darling baby bubby bunkaroo?
Allow me to give you my step by step guide. Only daring males should try this, and only after giving many free meals, free lip massages, and free conversation (whoever said talk was cheap has not seen my phone bills. I should get a cash advance!)
Step 1. Secure a girlfriend
Step 2. Secure a refined Adamantium (Carbon) Crystal from days of yore. Newly made ones will not do, neither will any form of Zirconium. Females are very picky about this sort of thing. If you are really smart, ask her mother in a third world country to bargain for one for you. She probably has a better grasp on her taste than you do anyways. Also craft the base out of refined Mithril when available, or white gold if you're cheap.
Step 3. Secure a venue, I asked her sister to scope one out for me.
Step 4. Secure yourself. No guts, no glory....and definitely no convincing display of undying devotion.
Step 5. Secure her... at the venue, with the ring, and never turn back on your decision ;)
My venue was an Antipolo hillside restaurant called Pati's Point overlooking the city of Manila in the Philippines at night with a gorgeous view of the milky way. (Your venue may vary. Results are not guaranteed.) She cried a little and we had a wonderful time. Try to avoid seeing dead bodies on the way home like we thought we saw, it kind of ruins the mood. In actuality they were just unconscious motorcyclists.
Our wedding day will be April 25th. I'm sure gonna be busy. :P
I'll still be blogging though, I love it and if any of you have any fun engagement stories please post them in the comments ;)
