Congrats on your engagement, dude! Saw your fiancee's ring on Facebook. Many years!

When's the big fat Greek Japanese wedding?

(Also, this gives hope to people like me out there. :P )

This is a very big step you are taking. To paraphrase a great man: "Marriage is not safe. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid."  Godspeed, good sir!

Akimori Banzai!
