The Hatrack disease is spreading to Europe now. I give you two months and you'll be a Mormon too.

First, Congrats to both of you!! Lots of love and lots of luck headed your way!

Second, Kama, I hope you're prepared for a lot of paperwork and a lot of beuareaucratic nonsense.... a friend in another group finally got clearance to emigrate to the US from England after almost 2 full years of red tape and interviews and medical exams. You will be questioned mercilessly about your reasons for moving, the nature of your relationship, your employability, all kinds of other stuff that's likely to feel like a huge huge intrusion on everything private in your life.

Yeah. It's not clear from the thread on grenme whether they are really for true engaged or what. Plus, I know people want to keep things private sometimes, but to show NO hint of it on Hatrack at all that I can recall? No endearment? Nothing? That's just amazing. It's not impossible, but normally there are little signs of something going on long before a formal announcement. Plus, in a community like Hatrack where gossip flies faster than a really fast thing to keep it private? Amazing.

I'd wager that the vast majority of things on Hatrack travel at the speed of light, at least for a time. [Razz] [Wink]

Gossip, in Hatrack and everywhere, flies by Jane Airlines.

Jane Airlines: Takes you "Out there".

And I'm raising my bet to 4 cents.

Pssst - in many countries in Europe (and even Asia, for that matter), wedding rings are worn on the right hand.

Count me as one of the skeptical..... [Razz]

Just as a note:

I am engaged to a fellow I met on Pweb.

*grin*

EDIT: Not trying to steal any thunder, honestly!! I just realized now that I forgot to mention it earlier.

I'm very happy for you two, if this isn't a hoax. [Wink]

While Kama and Eddie -- and Kama and John, and Kama and pretty much any cool Hatracker -- would make a fantastic couple, I would be VERY skeptical of anything they say on this subject. I would, in fact, probably demand to see a notarized marriage license or something. [Smile]

And even then, until we saw their first born we would probably be wondering.

Wait a sec....even then, you don't have to be married....

Nevermind...

I'm still torn. See, I see Frisco doing it as a joke, but not Kama. Hmmm.... and doesn't she have a boyfriend in Poland who wouldn't kill a spider or something?

moving to America
Kama, saying goodbye to your native land won't be that easy, especially once this romantic giddiness wears off.

Do you really want your children to grow up in the United States? They'll miss the language, the art, the traditions, the history, and the relatives whom you love.

I bought a fifth of Chopin today. I believe that qualifies me to immigrate to Poland and marry Kama myself.

I see your bet and raise you 5 bucks. I seriously doubt that this is real, if for no other reason than I think Frisco would have gotten Kama a bigger ring! [Evil]

But, if I'm wrong, I'll be the first to congratulate them.

Say, why are we talking about Frisco and Kama when we could be rehashing Mack and Nathan's engagement? Oh, wait. No one cares any more. [Razz]

Seriously, Leto is right. The paranoia in that thread is silly. It's pretty clear to me that this thread isn't making fun of you guys. Jeez.
