Mans marrage Proposal triggers UFO alert

Subby, I can't put my finger on it, but you've marred something in that headline.

Would have been funnier if there were 99 of them :P

Funnier? It'd have been hilarious. Not sure about ironic, though. Kind of "life imitates art?"

I'm having a hard time grasping the concept of a paper balloon with a flame under it not just burning to the ground.

Gay. My wife puts her rings in her jewelry box when she showers. One morning I swapped out a ring I had gotten her for Christmas that she always wore with the engagement ring. She picked the ring up and had it on the tip of her finger before she did the biggest double-take I've ever seen. Then I did the proposal thing. It was simple but still a surprise, and she loved it. The one thing I didn't anticipate though was that I would have to sit on the bed and wait for almost an hour until she was ready to start putting on jewelry. We had our one year anniversary on the 12th, and last night she went crazy for no reason and started lecturing me about telling her the truth and not cheating. Now I'm wondering wtf I was thinking. Yay marriage.

In other news, 50 wildfires were set almost simultaneously on the outskirts of the German town of Straubing. Officials are still trying to determine if it was a terrorism-related attack.

They're F'ing awesome. Saw thousands of them in Thailand at Songkran (Thai new year) festival and it was very pretty.

I remember one from back in the '90s. Turned out to be a 4' helium-filled RC blimp in the shape of a "flying saucer."
One of the people who called it it thought it was a "real" UFO becasue it had the letters "U-F-O" written on the side of it.

Women are like that. They will continue to test you until the end of your days. There is a reason for that old saw, "Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em". Once you understand that it is a part and parcel of who they are, you can just deal with it when it crops up on occasion.

/Coming up on my 13th anniversary.

We were putting up a christmas tree and I went out to grab the pizza we had just ordered.. When I came back, half the tree was decorated and lit up, and he told me that in their family they had a tradition of buying a new ornament for the tree every year, and hoped that I didn't mind that he had already put it on the tree. I said no, of course not and looked for it.. it was my ring, close to the top of the tree near the star.. then he did the one knee thingie.. :)

Did that. I tried to convince her that synthetic was way better because of the higher quality in the lattice structure. She didn't care. What else?

Hubs and I have a back stoop that faces a pretty wooded area. Once we started dating, we would sit out there for hours and talk. Sounds boring to most, but it was special to us. He hired a limo and had it waiting in the back alley behind our house. He proposed on the stoop, and then shuttled me all over the city. We went to our parents' houses and announced the news, and then to a swank hotel for the night. It was absolutely perfect, in my opinion.

/thinks holiday proposals are contrived
//make it special, guys

Plastic is the new gold, we can even make fuel from it, so I'd say get her a plastic ring. In some years time, it's value will have increased over 10.000 times, and you'll be one of the lucky few that owns one, and probably own the country it resides in.

Sapa-dpa indeed

Looks like the offspring of the late night show's drum-roffle followed by the hihat (kada-tsing) and Scooby Doo's main form of expressing himself (Yabba Dabba).

But I might be wrong.

Write 'Will you marry my?' on a 22-caliber bullet and shoot her with it.

If she accepts, it is true love - if not, no loss

Really. Don't use a pussy caliber like that. That just says to her you might be gay, or you aren't really serious.

Plus, you have to write *REALLY* small.

I think that was quite a super dapper proposal.

Shooting your loved one with a caliber less than .40" says you're not committed to the long haul.

I asked for a pink sapphire. I got a 3/4 diamond. He cheated and kept the ring.

Use a shotgun shell, have the seperate letters carved into the hail particles, if the love is strong enough, she'll figure it out!

Or perhaps invade a country and form a sentence with the bodies of the deceased so that you're at least original in the 'I proposed on Google Earth'-listing.
