This Blogger is Gone... and Back!

It took a message from Krys to wake, and remind me that vacation time is over, and that I have to get back to my blogging addiction and duties.

The thing is - and it happens a lot, being a perfectionist - I was waiting for the perfect post before I tended to my "normal/regular" everyday life stories. I was trying to write a super nice and complex post about the big changes that stormed my life this summer, but never found the time to give it its worth.

I realize now, that a simple post would have done the job. Then, I could move on much easier, and start talking about the many events that are occurring in other people's life (so as in mine). After all, my voyeur nature asserts and confirms that others' lives are much more interesting than mine.

... so here it goes...

It was uncertain, fast, unplanned and unrehearsed, but it was something we both have been waiting for... for a long long time.
The situation in Lebanon, my father's shaky health, and the fact that 80% of my friends could not make it to Beirut this summer, were considerations to annul, or report our official union.
It was also a last minute decision, but in the end we prevailed, and together we were able to omit the word "Long distance" that used to precede the word "relationship", whenever we had to explain that "thing" we had.

In the end, and on 20.07.2007 @ 07:07 p.m., this beautiful union, marked our lives, our history and forever, our memories....

Um, so ... you got married?! If so, MASSIVE CONGRATS, _z. That's a post that really marks someone's return!

(If not, I'm an idiot, so ignore me.)

Either way, it's good to have you back, old bean.

First of all... welcome back! You and your posts have been very much missed.

Second of all... am I reading this right? You are a married man now? (Sorry if this sounds like an obvious question, I have been awake the whole of... 12 minutes.) Huzzah! That's fantastic news!

"Fast,unplanned and unrehearsed" sums up a lot of my own wedding to Asterisk... best way to do it, mate. Heartfelt congratulations to you both, and here's to many, many, many happy years together!
