September 19th is a pretty important day for us. It’s the day Nick and I met in person for the first time. As I’ve said before, we met on E-Harmony. My Mother-In-Law met her husband Alan that way, so Nick decided to give it a try. My Aunt Diana met her husband Lane that way, so I decided to give it a try.
Nick and I were matched, and went through E-Harmony’s guided communication process, then we exchanged emails and phone numbers. After several very long conversations we decided to schedule our first date. It ended up being September 19th, at a little Italian restaurant.
I didn’t know it at the time, but September 19th is also Nick’s grandparents’ anniversary. I love that we met 48 years to the day after they said "I do". Today is eight years for us meeting, and fifty-six years for the Grands’ anniversary.
It’s also International Talk Like a Pirate Day. I found this great Pirate Personality test to determine what kind of pirate you are. I hope you’ll take it and share your results in the comments. Here are mine:
You are ...
Profile: Some men and women are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any scalawag who stands between them and unlimited power. You never met a man - or woman - you couldn't eviscerate. You are the definitive Man of Action, the CEO of the Seven Seas, Lee Iacocca in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. You're mission-oriented, and if anyone gets in the way, that's his problem, now isn't? Your buckle was swashed long ago and you have never been so sure of anything as your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off his head if he shows any sign of taking you on or backing down. If one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.
