one of my favorite people in the world, who happens to be horrible at updating her blog or sending emails, yet wonderful at “superpoking” and keeping up with my blog, is engaged. i found out via text message last night… oh, how times have changed.
i’m going to call susanne as soon as i finish typing this post to check the facts, but i believe she and ryan met online… and not just any old internet dating service… but the classifieds on the onion. the onion, if you don’t already know it, is one of america’s oldest ironic news sources. it is the mother of all pop-culture political satire that has peppered our media this past decade. and thank goodness… one needs a sense of humor to survive.
i have friends that have met online and married before… but this is the first onion love i know of. makes me wonder if my friends’ threat to give me an online dating membership for my birthday wasn’t such a bad idea after all.
