I have heard a number of suggestions for good walking down the aisle music. My friend Claire had Friday I'm In Love by the Cure, and [livejournal.com profile] icekestrel today suggested Eve of the War from Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds. I still think [livejournal.com profile] burlesque_bunny has the right plan with The Imperial March from Star Wars, though... But what do you guys reckon?

[Poll #1191407]

Mister Mat is snoring and sweating feverishly beside me. I was pretty poorly yesterday, but am much better today. He seems to be worse today. Please to be sending him get better vibes? I doesn't like my lovely fiancé being all poorly :(

I have been giving him lots of hugs and stuff, but that doesn't seem to be working :(

Last night was really cool. [livejournal.com profile] susannah_banana is a fab DJ and played lots of cool stuff and also much amusing cheese. [livejournal.com profile] matgb and I did some utterly filthy dirty dancing and lots of snogging and there was a boy with the world's most amazing hair (yes, [livejournal.com profile] puddingcat, even better than the bassist from Trivium) and also a boy wearing a T-shirt that said on the front "Schrodinger's cat is dead" and on the back "Schrodinger's cat is not dead" which was very cool.

Also, transport was not that bad. Nights out in Leeds are feasible! Hurrah!

This morning... well, there was one of those perfect moments, when you're laid in a post-coital snuggle in the arms of the one you love and you don't want it to ever end. Sadly, it had to end, because I had to get up for work, and the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] nannyo and Mup had arrived with breakfast. Theoretically, they were coming to pick up some stuff I had borrowed. This somehow turned into them arriving with croissants and smiles and making breakfast for very bleary [livejournal.com profile] matgb and I. And then giving me a lift to work. My gratitude for this wonderfulness knows no bounds.

And now I am home. [livejournal.com profile] shrublette is at her dad's for the week. The house is all quiet and empty. There's no click-type-giggle of Mat on the laptop behind me. It just feels... odd. Like there's a bit of me missing and I can't quite put my finger on what it is...


Anyway, there has been wedding discussion. Nothing is concrete yet, but we're looking at May next year. Venue(s) are still under discussion. Finances are totally up in the air. We're thinking that, rather than a wedding list, we'll possibly ask people to contribute to a honeymoon fund, because, well, we already have toaster and juicer and stuff... Does this sound like a plan? Also, we definitely don't want to have a SOPPY first dance, but are unable to agree completely what it should be... Front runners at the moment include Misshapes by Pulp and The Love Cats by the Cure... thoughts of the f-list?

As for clothing... Well, I can't wear white, can I? It would be false advertising. So I have had the madcap idea of having six bridesmaids, and doing the colours of the rainbow. I'm bagsie-ing violet, and then Shrubby in Indigo, and others in red/orange/yellow/green/blue. This way I can make [livejournal.com profile] puddingcat wear canary yellow! Yay! And obviously [livejournal.com profile] ginasketch = red. [livejournal.com profile] missdiane, would you prefer blue or orange? For Sarah-ex-lodger is having green, and best-friend-Claire says she's not bothered and can wear any colour... And is it possible to get morning suits in black? Because, you know, Mister Mat in a cravat? Rawr.

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!

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?
