Our girl dammitjanet is getting married on the 25th, and she was aiming to use the diversions for some wedding music and food advice. And as much as I’d like to help out, we’ve unfortunately already covered almost every wedding angle at this point. So, dammitjanet, future bride and grooms, and wedding planners alike, if you ever need some advice in putting together the proper wedding, allow us to point you toward: Great quotes for your wedding vows, great meals, and the best reception music. Unless we delve into floral arrangements or how to deal with your in-laws, we’ve pretty much exhausted wedding-related diversions. So, please offer your congrats to dammitjanet on her impending nuptials.

And, though we have covered weddings, there’s one aspect of matrimony that we have yet to explore: The Proposal. And I’ll say this right off the bat: On Main Street in Disneyland, with musical accompaniment, seems like one of the worst ideas in the world to me:

So, for the married among you, what’s your story? I performed the feat in Paris. I’d considered the Eiffel Tower, but that was way too cheesy and touristy (plus, I’m terrified of heights), and I almost pulled the trigger in the French cemetery where Jim Morrison is buried, but that was way too morbid. So, naturally, I waited until just the right moment: While we were arguing in our Paris apartment across from the Notre Dame.

You’ll never find a more romantic way to end an argument.
