    Jaybird has been a bright spot in an incredibly difficult week.

    I'm really looking forward to 10:15pm tomorrow.Report

    Congrats. My marriage lasted about that long, and my 20s were with the future “Tech Girl”, so…might want to not get complacent :)))

    I have to go to some Halloween Gala this Sat. (The things you do for women folk). This causes me to have to wear 1) a coat and 2) a tie. So I’ll be too warm to really enjoy it. Also, I except to be waylaid into dancing. Ugh.

    On the positive side, Skyrim Enhanced edition is out (and free) so I’ll be playing that, and there is jujitsu. All in all not a bad weekend.Report

    18 years…mazel tov! My wife and I celebrate 12 years on Sunday. She asked me the other day if I would purchase a $20 ceramic Christmas statue for the front porch. Done. I asked her for 2 packs of Field Notes. Done. The simple fact that we’re good with that makes me incredibly happy. Now I just need to make her something equally as delicious-sounding as the above meal and remind her that she made my life about 100 times better when she said ‘I do’.

    Congrats again to Jaybird and Maribou. Wishing you many more.

    P.S. I’m confused about putting bacon on the buns…That doesn’t turn into a greasy mess…?Report

    • Jaybird in reply to Mike Dwyer says:

      I generally bake my bacon in the oven on Sunday for the coming month. So, like, a couple of pounds.

      I prefer my bacon to be crisp (Maribou tends to call it “burned”) and Maribou prefers hers to be just a little al dente.

      So it’s this al dente bacon that gets put on the bun and it gets heated enough to bring the fats to the surface.Report

      • Mike Dwyer in reply to Jaybird says:

        Ahhhh…so the bacon is pre-cooked. Gotcha. That’s what I figured. I prefer my bacon to be cooked just enough that it won’t kill me, and I’m good.

        Now I’m thinking we need hamburgers for dinner tonight.Report

    • Maribou in reply to Mike Dwyer says:

      Thanks @mike-dwyer. And congrats to you and Miz D as well.Report

  4. To say it another way, your marriage is a millennial.

    Damn, none of the jokes I can think of are OK for MD.Report

    Oh, you crazy kids! Happy Anniversary! Still batching it, as I have been for the last 2 weeks.Report

  6. Miss Mary says:

    Happy anniversary!!! How wonderful you two are for each other and for the world to see. 🙂

    Junior is spending a special weekend with his granny. I am determined to have more social time with my adults only weekend. Last weekend was a little too quiet with all of that alone time. Relaxing, but quiet. I should probably get TV or a radio or something. I’m thinking I’ll skip working Job #2 this weekend. Maybe run off to the beach with a friend or something.

    Two weeks until I’m pregnant. The countdown continues!Report

    Congrats to you & Maribou!

    As for the weekend, Halloween party for the kids tomorrow. Trick or Treating isn’t until Monday, but the kids can still get dressed up & play in their costumes while us adults interact with other adults.Report

  8. RTod says:

    Happy Anniversary!!!

    It’s a testament to how made-for-each-other you guys are that I always think of you as newlyweds. 🙂Report

    Congratulations to you both.Report

    Best wishes to Jaybird and Maribou!


    H.S. football playoffs begin tomorrow for me.

    Watching the World Series. I remarked to a friend the other day how both of my kids have now seen both Chicagos in the Series, something I had to wait 53 years for. Now all I have to do is avoid Cub fans for a few more days and life can return to normal.Report

  11. Michael Cain says:

    Congratulations to both of you! It takes an ongoing effort to make things continue to work (we celebrated 36 years a couple of months ago, and are still working at it).Report

  12. Anne says:

    Congratulations @maribou and @jaybird !!!

    Have the Halloween Train tomorrow regretting my choice of costume as it will be 86 degrees tomorrow. A party tomorrow night. Having an outlet fixed Sunday that is getting alarmingly hot (breaker is off) and then my BIL&SIL Harry Potter themed anniversary party Sunday night.Report

    • Maribou in reply to Anne says:

      Thank you.

      And you have my sympathies; it’s hard figuring out costumes when it’s hot. After 19 Hallowe’ens in Colorado, I’m still not used to trying to find the sweet spot between “cozy” and “summery”. In eastern Canada, it was “cozy, put on winter jackets underneath if it becomes TOO frickin’ cold and/or starts to snow.”Report

    Thanks to all for your wonderful well-wishes!

    I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween weekend!Report
