There’s going to be an intermission at The Mana Obscura over the next week or so. Don’t worry though, normal service will resume on roughly 9th May give or take a few days either way. And to put your minds at ease, I’m not having surgery or real-life problems or anything of that nature.
You see, I’m getting married. More specifically, I’m marrying the lady who plays the gnome in the picture above.
We’ve been together for six years and living together for just over four. When we started dating we lived at other ends of the country, so we used MMOs as a cheap way of keeping in touch. We started with Horizons, but moved on to Warcraft on the day of release. I bought a copy for her as a Valentine’s Day present back in 2005 just so we could enjoy it with eachother.
Since then we’ve been playing together, questing together and raiding together. We’ve shared the highs and lows of guild achievements and guild drama, boss kills and burnouts.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think how lucky I am to be loved by the girl that I love, but who is also into gaming and geek culture. I couldn’t ask for a better friend, guildmate and wife.
So while I work on the last few stages of the “Getting Married” achievement, I’ll leave you with “Geek Like Me” by The Wonderstrucks.
See you all in a few weeks!
