So, yes...

... for those of you who didn't get the oblique hat reference and aren't on [livejournal.com profile] matgb's F-list, I asked him to marry me earlier. This was mainly because (like everyone else who knows me pretty well) he knows what my views on marriage, um, were up until recently, and had kind of accepted that it was never going to happen; so if anyone was going to do the asking, it had to be me.

Obviously I did it by surreptitiously slipping a link into an email. This caused an almost immediate phone call.
Him: Um... are you asking me to marry you?
Me: Um, yeah, I think I am...
Him: ...
Me: ...
Him: Well, obviously I'm going to say yes
Me: Oh thank God, I was terrified you were going to say no!
Him: ...
Me: ...
Him: I thought you didn't want anything to do with marriage?
Me: I think I changed my mind. I think it was maybe because I'd never met anyone I wanted to marry before.
Him: ...
Me: ...
Him: Um... YAY!

(etc.)
I think that conversation had the most stunned silences in it of any conversation I have ever had.

Sort-of in celebration, but mostly just to fill time while he answers all the comments he's got (word to the f-list, Mat neither composes entries nor replies to comments at anything like the speed I do tee hee hee), I Simpsonised us: )

I think I'm nearer than him; what do you guys reckon?
