They being Kate, Julia, and my parents. It took me finding the person tha I'll be spending the rest of my life with to have my parents together in a room without tearing each others lungs out, or livers or kidneys or perhaps even gallbladders. There was a little tension between them but given the long story of how it ended between them less would not have happened without strong sedatives. Despite the slight tension all went beautifully well and I'm terribly happy about the way things are happening. My mother suggested that I propose tonight instead of when I was thinking of doing it - my thought of doing it then being exactly because I didn't want my mother to complain that I did it too soon! Oh how funny life can be with irony or what not. Speaking of funny life, I got an e-mail from a good friend of my best friend with whom I haven't spoken in ages - she just moved to Manhattan from Boston (a sensible move) and she wanted to know if it really was me posting to the bruno comic bulletin board or not - it is me indeed. Oh what a lovely day it is. Dinner tonight will be amazing I imagine. Especially with me proposing, and what not.
