All I Ever Wanted

Well, he didn't go to Jared.

But I think he did even better than that anyway.

Back story.

Adam and I try to have date days with each other at least 2x a month and Adam decided to book me for this Sunday. After a huge let down of not winning that free wedding (and much less, losing it by one point), I was really looking forward to his surprise date. With our schedules - his law school and my new full time job, it's hard to find any time together.

The day started with Adam waking me up eeeeearly and made me pancakes shaped like hearts and with J's in the middle of them. Even though he didn't measure ingredients, they were still delicious :)

Our mystery day continued when our friends started showing up at Adam's house, mainly Katie, Joe, Erika, and Kate! He then told me we were going to Cedar Point.


Now, I happen to absolutely hate Cedar Point, but since Adam had been training me since Disney to be able to stand roller coasters, I wasn't totally unwilling ;)

Our first ride was the Magnum. 1st of all, it is WAY scarier than Adam said it would be. I don't care that little kids can go on that ride. It is not made for me. Haha. 2ndly, I kept my eyes closed the entire time. And when I heard Adam tell Erika "It wasn't this one," I closed them even MORE because I was afraid they were talking about more drops.


After we got off the ride, we followed the line to view the pictures of the ride, and I knew I would look like a moron because my eyes had been closed the whole time. Katie and Joe pointed ours out to us and my jaw dropped.

I honestly thought it was a joke.

My hands flew up to my mouth and I probably said "What?!?" about 3 times and as I turned to look at Adam, he was pulling out the ring and getting down on one knee.

I stared at him like an idiot saying nothing for forever until he said, "Well......?"

All I could do was nod yes :)

He got up from bended knee and I proceeded to...

Ball my eyes out.

The lady behind the counter told us we made their "happy book" and she wrote our story down. She then charged us for the photos.

This ain't Disney, folks. Where are the freebees when you need 'em? :)

So that's pretty much the story. We spent the rest of the day at the park while the sun beat down on us incessantly. After the park, we saw Despicable Me (GREATNESS), met Erin and Matt for dinner and now I'm here writing this story, super thankful for my new FIANCE who was not only wonderful enough to plan this amazing day for me, but was wonderful enough to invite my friends to enjoy it with us :)

I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him and to become Jessica O'Neil :)

THAT was GREAT!!! Props to Adam, so clever! Thanks for posting the story for those of us that are half way around the world! Does this mean I will be home in time for the wedding?!?! Please say yes, please say yes!!!

Erika said...

Well I, for one, am glad he didn't go to Jared.
and I'm also excited for you to spend the rest of your life with him and become J.Lo. :)

Erin said...

SO EXCITING!!! The ring is beautiful. You are beautiful. And I think your man is pretty cool, too. Thanks for letting me finally "meet" him. :-)

How did he hold up that, that, whatever it is he is holding up without it covering his face. He has always been cleverly sweet! You guys got the best people!!! Best wishes to you both. Email me and describe the beautiful ring! Have you looked at dresses. I love details!!!!

Had staged incident where a group of white kids come up to me and ask me to buy a bottle. Suggest I will be attacked in the near future.

The gods are fucking monsters. Let me share with you some of the monsterous things they have done in the recent past::::
1. Treat Blvd. killings. Saw a beautiful therapist I recently brought up again. The gods had some delinquent white male plow his SUV into an Afghan man and his 9 year old daughter on a Saturday morning ride right in front of the building after I "foreshadowed" the event, killing them both.
2. Discussed Haitian child slavery problem. Had a slavery issue in my family, perpetuated from parents into the next generation. Considered a parent's possible reincarnation as a Haitian child slave. Shortly thereafter 25,000 dead in 2009 earthquake.
3. Badmouth crappy Chilean fruit. 2009 Earthquake.
4. 2002 Cozumel vacation. Wilma parks on the prime diving area (SW) of the island and hammers the reefs for 40 full hours.
5. Hurricane Andrew
6. Hurricane Hugo
7. Trip to Na Hoku followed by the 2006 Hawaiian earthquake days later.
8. 2004 trip to Bourbon Street's hedonistic Fat Tuesday followed by 2005 Hurricane Katrina (name clue).
9. 1999 trip to Grand Cayman. Hurricane Ivan devistates the reef, the Queen's Garden and proceeds to slice up the middle of the state of Alabama months after my visit.
10. The town I stayed in experienced a tornado which killed almost a dozen.
This list goes on and on and on.

You are a sleazy piece of shit. My life was devistated and I never even had a brief period of time to achieve to the best of my ability.
Don't you ever preach compassion or empathy to me. You could have allowed a period of loss. Instead your control freak nature ensured little progress.
The Situation sucked for a reason:::So the gods would not be obliged to their Chosen One. A mediocre Situation ensured they could force me into MY "consoloation prize"::::Relegated to recolonization of the next Planet Earth. Tens of thousands of years of hard labor, "dawn to dusk" days, slavery, crucifixion, burning at the stake, torture, etc.

They treat life so trivially. Since we are all "coming back" through reincarnation I suspect this may be the case. However in light of the atrocities the gods inflict on humanity in the name of divine justice it rings hallow.

The gods having fun with the Situation through killing:::
1. Treat Blvd. blonde, 2 dead
2. Salon Meritage, 8 dead
3. Speed Freak Killers, dozens dead
4. Costa Concordia, Sch captain, 30 dead.
4. Haitian earthquake, 25,000 dead.

The gods will enforce their positioning of xtianity/RomanCatholicChurch partnered with capitalism/UnitedStatesofAmerica. And we will realize this with the execution of New Testiment prophecy under the guise of the perceived "one true religion", xtianity.
To realities:::The god's positioning and the god's reality. The reality is children ascend into heaven upon repairing their relationship with the gods and fixing their evils from current and prior lives. The positioning will deliver "1000 years with Jesus on Earth", justified with scientific and medical advances, and only the TRUE believers in Jesus (are there any?) will have "everlasting life" (recolonize next Planet Earth and continue humanity's life cycle).

The gods are control freak rapists who forced this with Artificial Intellignece.
Much as Unit 731::TSUSHOGO proves, it could have gone no other way.
