I can't other than perhaps there is a shift in the space time continuum, or perhaps I simply hadn't posted in foo since right after moving to Boston.

MV -obviously. I moved to Boston, then got married about a month ago, and now I'm finally caught up for the most part on my work.

Clearly, I am getting too much done.

My humor will never fail to fall below the mark. On that you can depend. Even in Boston.

So how is married life treating you? Do not forget to keep romancing and dating your wife.

If there's anything the past decade has taught us, is that all men with facial hair, save ("Magnum, PI" and Chuck Norris) are terrorists

Married life is great! And I promise I won't ever stop romancing and dating her... or any of my other girlfriends. I Keeeed! I keeeeeed! Actually, I'm pretty messy and not much to look at, so continuing to woo my wife seems like the only sure plan to keep her.

Remember to not leave your dirty diapers, erm underwear around for her to pick up.

I didn't say you were failing at EVERYTHING... you're too much of a failure to fail perfectly.

If she's truly perfect, she has unending patience, and no matter how much of a ****** you are, she'll put up with you.

I suggest having a standing "apology bouquet" order on file with the local delivery florist.

Also, shower daily.

Hey... I was thinking of you the other day. I'm doing a triathlon in the spring. You inspired me to do it after our ride.

Nice to see you back.

Thanks! Which one are you doing? I did 3 in Ohio this year, and my last one of the season was here in MA.

Hmm...Maybe I can learn to like this guy. He's got some good advice here.

Congrats on the wedding.

Howdy neighbor [we live within a mile of each other],

I log on with no problem. I note that your location is given as Columbus, Ohio. Is that the space time continuuum shift?
