Thirten years and five weeks ago, today, I quit the last “real” job that I ever held.
This date is familiar to me mostly because thirteen years ago, today, I married the Lovely and Talented Judith.
Honestly, it’s not been often in my life that I’ve made two utterly brilliant moves in a five-week space. But really, Judith had much to do with both of them, so let’s call it a shared credit. 🙂
It’s a super-spectacular marriage, and honestly, I got stupid lucky when Judith said “yes.” Which <a href=http://www.dorktower.com/about-john-kovalic/national-enquirer/>is probably as good a time to bring up the actual method of my proposal again, as any.</a>
I adore my wife, and our thirteenth year of marriage was about as amazing as any can get. Which doesn’t mean I won’t be trying to make the 14th even better. But life with Judith – and now <a href=http://muskrat-john.livejournal.com/226071.html>with Louisa as well</a> – is frankly pretty freaking awesome, 24-7.
I adore you, Judith! Even more now than when I first fell in love with you.
Need a new desktop machine: pretty badly, as it turns out.
For the first time in a decade, though, I have to wonder if it might not make more sense saving $1,000 and going with a <a href=http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/imac?mco=MTE2NjM> pretty good iMac,</a> as opposed to a <a href=http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/mac_pro?mco=MjI5MDE1>pretty awesome Mac Pro,</a> the sort of which I’ve had and loved for years…
