Mostly, I delayed writing this rant entry ’cause I’m a bastard, and I like making people sweat things out. :) A lot of people need confirmation from me to know whether to believe it or not. *laughs*

Yesindeedy, Liz and I are currently engaged to be married. We’re doing things on kind of short notice, (we’ve been planning for a few weeks, but our target date is March 20th. Not a lot of time, but things seem to be working out okay so far. :) ) because we’d really like to have the wedding down here near all our families before heading up to Washington. I think we might just pull it off, too. Liz is working like crazy planning the wedding… she’s doing an amazing job. Just reminds me why I want to marry her. I’m really just kind of giddy about the whole thing. I’m really, really looking forward to getting married. I know that might shock the more commitment shy of you, but what can I say. :) She makes me happy.

I’ll be sure to give more details later, and you KNOW you’ll be getting pictures and whatnot after the fact. So no worries. ^^

In completely unrelated news, do you guys remember back when I sold those hand-drawn RL strips on ebay? Well, the guy who bought the second one has hit kind of a financial rut, and he has to sell it. :( I only know this because he asked me if there was any way I could verify for potential bidders that the auction was genuine. Well, I’m gonna do him one better – check out his auction here. Help a brotha out. (and just so we’re clear, he didn’t ask me to do this.)

I said,”Yes”!

Thank you to all of you who have sent me congratulatory e-mails. They mean so much to me. Greg only proposed last week, and we are planning on having the wedding March 20th! So I have been a busy girl around here. That, and I have a very small budget to work off from. Its been alot of haggling recently. I am excited though. If any of you are from the Sacramento area and are either a photographer, florist, caterer, or a baker… PLEASE let me know!

In my mountains of e-mails I have been getting from everyone (including the masses of Happy Birthday e-mails) I have recieved a few questions as to where people can send gifts. Greg and I really appreciate that you guys want to help, but we would really like it if you would donate money to go towards the wedding itself. You can donate money through paypal, or through our gift registry on The Knot. If you are old fashioned and really want to purchase something for us, we are registered at The Knot. We will also be registering at Linens N Things, Target, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and probably at Macy’s. The Knot registry is actually kind of funny to look at. They had the ability to register for a 2004 BMW Z4 Roadster. So I thought, “What the hell, it’ll be funny to have it on there.”

Thank you all again for your sweet words for our future. What I am mostly looking forward to writing “Mrs. Elizabeth Dean” instead of “Miss Elizabeth Van Buskirk”. That can cramp your hand up pretty easily.
