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!
Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild, daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild, weidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört, den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.
