A modest announcement :)

For those of you who have not already seen this breaking across Facebook, Google+, or Twitter tonight, userinfosolarbird and I would like to announce that on March 2nd, we will be getting a Canadian marriage license!

We were already planning this before today’s Washington state law signed by Governor Christine Gregoire. In fact, we are planning this as part of a Grand Four-Day Weekend of Marriage and Music, starting off with seeing these handsome boys perform on the night of March 1st! On March 2nd, Dara and I (and two other friends of ours who I will not identify publicly so as to respect their privacy, but who will be joining us for a dual ceremony) will be taking the appropriate steps to get legally married in Canada! On March 3rd, we will have yet more music as we attend Festival du Bois!

Mad props to userinfogerimaple who has very kindly agreed to put Dara and me up for the weekend!

I have been asked as well if Dara and I are planning anything with the new law being passed in Washington state. To this, I note that to the best of our knowledge, if we are legally married in Canada, then that will count in the state of Washington–assuming that the law is not shot down in November. So for now we will be focusing on Canadian marriage fun, and getting in a boatload of awesome Quebecois music to go with it. :D

And! And! And! This being my and Dara’s 25th year of being together, there’s a whole extra layer of anniversarial awesomeness to celebrate here as well! So if you’re so inclined, raise a jar on March 2nd and think of us!

    1. Actually, it kinda sprung up in joint discussion with userinfomaellenkleth and userinfosiestabear, who have given me permission to mention their involvement online. ^_^

      The ORIGINAL plan was just Dara and me going up to see Le Vent! Then I discovered Festival du Bois was the same weekend! Then Mevs got in on the plan and the idea arose of doing a double ‘let’s get Canadamarried!’ thing.

      Dara and I are way more laid back about it than the Mevs are, just because Dara and I have already been together for 25 years, so this is way more ‘anniversary’ than ‘actual marriage’ for us. ;)

      1. Hee. Yeah, not exactly ‘laid back’, since there are all sorts of layers of legalities involved for us. But ‘ready to party’ all the same!


        Mevs, cheaper by the dozen /^_^\
