Outed

So. Remember the other day when I said I was falling for a guy who lives in a galaxy far, far away? I'm sure y'all assumed that the guy in question was Obi-Wan Kenobi or maybe an ewok or something, but the truth is that while this guy is just as wise as Obi-Wan, he is WAY cuter than even the cutest of ewoks.

And you might as well know -- hell, most of you already do -- that my guy is not just any guy but Some Guy. Who rocks.

When Chris/Some Guy and I first started falling for each other (which was way back in November, if you must know), we agreed to keep it to ourselves. Or, more accurately, we decided to share that news only in meatspace because, well, there are some things y'all just do not need to know. But we're smitten and giddy, and we couldn't help but allude to our giddy smitten-ness* in posts like this and this and this and, um, this. Then there was all that Chicago canoodling, which ultimately led to our being outed. And that's fine. Our readers are not retarded; we knew you'd figure it out eventually.

So there you go, now it's official. But if you're hoping for YouTube videos of intimate moments, it ain't gonna happen. You'll have to settle for that one of Chris doing something (I have no idea what -- I've got dial-up) with snow.

I knew it was you crazy kids. Even though I really am retarded, I figured it out somehow.

Anyway, I think it's great :) You guys being all twitterpated and stuff.

bleagh. Please don't start dotting your "i"' with little hearts.

Oh, and DON'T get married. 1) it forever changes people 2) it's a form of goverment control and 3) no one should marry until EVERYONE has the right to marry.

in the meantime, have a wonnerful time, just spare us from the overly-mushy stuff.

Megan said...

Meaghan - Is that a sigh of relief?

Amy - Thanks. You're quite the little Nancy Drew!

Big Orange - Oooh, is there an html code for that? 'Cause Chris's name even has an "i" in it. . .that would be so cute!

Actually, the plan all along was to spare you from even the slightly mushy stuff.

Phil said...

I think that's wonderful.

wonderturtle said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Lauren said...

Really? Chris? I never would habve guessed. ;-)

Valerie said...

No, I love the mushy stuff. Bring it on. I think it's great!

Hi, I'm a friend of Melissa in NYC and I meant to post in your "Should I leave Norfolk to move to work in a bookshop?" post, but did not. Although I do think you should. Move that is. I'm a big fan of taking chances...I moved to Atlanta from Florida to be with my boyfriend who lived in Virginia because we knew if we were ever going to make it work we'd have to try living in the same state. So, I moved here with no job and not knowing anyone. I'm supremely happy, married the boyfriend and have done quite well here in the big city. So, I say you are young and free...strike out to the cold tip of the Michigan mitten. They have great skiing and cool culture. I should know, my grandma lives about 30 minutes from Boyne City. Small world, huh?

Megan said...

Phil and WonderTurtle - Thanks. I think it's pretty cool too.

Lauren (Lulu?) - Yeah, hard to believe, but it's true.

Valerie - Oooh, no, the mushy stuff is strictly top secret.

Anon. friend o' Melissa - Small world indeed! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. So far nobody votes for sitting on my ass and wondering what might have been. And you're probably all right. . .

I for one am retarded, but I am glad for the two of you.

Megan said...

CP - Really? You didn't know?! But thanks.

Coaster Punchman said...

I didn't say I didn't know; I just said that I'm retarded. Wait, what was the question?

Frank Sirmarco said...

Worst. Kept. Secret. Ever.

But awesome none the less!

Can you guys come up with a compound version of your names like Brangelina or Bennifer? I could suggest some names (i.e. Chregan, Meghris), but that's not as fun as you guys coming up with it yourselves...

Chris said...

Well, Frank, if you use my full name, the possibilities increase. You get things like Megopher or Christomegan.

Megan said...

Kill me now.

Frank Sirmarco said...

Megopher sound like something that would fight Godzilla...

vikkitikkitavi said...

Well, I didn't know until Grant's post, but then I'm all the way out here on the left coast.

Yay to both of you.

Megan said...

Frank - Or like a GoBot. . .

Vikki - Then that was a very good guess you made on Grant's post. Not that he didn't give PLENTY of clues. (thanks Grant)
