I'm not entirely sure what my plans are for this journal, it's probably not going to be a day-to-day diary of my life, 'though it may degenerate into that. I think it's just somewhere that I can ramble on without someone telling me to shut up, or getting that dreamy, far-off look that means they stopped listening ten minutes ago. So, if you're not interested you can just skip it. (I said "ramble on" and I'm listening to the Zepp, hah).
So, I'm engaged. I don't think much has really changed, I guess it's really an affirmation of my relationship with Emily as it was before, but now everyone else is in on it. I hope I didn't fuck up that HTML, but if I did, you get what I mean.
Anyway, I don't think I've told anyone who hasn't said "congratulations". Guess it's the default response, and nobody is really likely to say, "bad luck dude" or at least not with Emily around. Although she wasn't here when I told Luke. (Over the phone).
It's funny, when I said to Mum "I have some news" she thought I was going to tell her that Emily was pregnant, then she was somewhat surprised when I told her we were engaged. She said it's always a surprise these days, when someone gets engaged, because so many people don't get married.
Before you ask, no ring yet.
No date set either, probably in a couple of years.
Which brings about the strange scenario of having a longer engagement than the time spent as boyfriend/girlfriend, but we're both comfortable with that.
It's funny with this journal writing style, I feel as though I'm writing to a particular person, but I'm just not entirely sure who that person is. I mean, I know that Luke will probably read it, and maybe Duane and who knows who else, but I don't feel I'm writing to them. I kind of understand the "Dear Diary" thing now.
Anyway, that's enough for one post. I'll probably come back later...
