Owe

I was going to have a long post today, meandering from some green but still nerdy Valentine ideas to the unveiling of the first of the multitude of nifty things that are beginning to occur in the Prime Geek and I's life....

But, I just fell down half a flight of stairs and ripped all the skin off my palm (on my UNBURNED hand... its been a week here at the nest folks), jarred my elbow, and I think I also managed to skin my back as I slid down the carpeting to finally come to rest with a less then happy feeling spine.

So.

With really no ado, the reason the Prime Geek and I are getting passport photos?

His job – realizing that if they want him to continue working a job that has him getting phone calls at all hours of the day as well as trundling into the office on weekends and late nights after he's already driven home, and also realizing that finding a matching pair of Japanese twin acrobats with a willing nature is difficult to hide on the company books – put him up for a bit of an award.

He won. 17 months behind, we're going to get our honeymoon. In June, we'll be heading out onto a 5 day cruise through Catalina and Baja. (Yes, I squealed like a teenager when I found out!) On one hand... we're taking a trip with 2,000 other insurance company workers – which kinda sounds like a really bad joke setup – but I don't care. I'll have my scuba training by then (I love having friends that can teach AND certify me in things), and the PG is thrilled the ship has a trained Sushi-ya. Hey, as long as they don't mind dropping mine in the deep fryer before serving me, its all good. I've moved all over, even done my share of traveling, but the cruise thing is completely new to both of us.

There. Nothing green. Short – for me. Back to the natural nerdliness tomorrow (where a brand new toy will be unveiled... and it actually is on topic for a change).

I'm going to go soak my pride and valiantly refrain from calling my mommy.

Happy Valentine's Day folks. Give those you care about a hug – its carbon free and completely environmentally friendly.
