If you don't read the engagement announcements in The New York Observer, you're missing out. They're like Chekhov with shorter names and better endings. From today's:

Prior to staging his elaborate proposal, he Googled for the perfect words with which to ask for Ms. Spiegel's hand.

He later found out that Ms. Spiegel had also Googled in search of the perfect response.

  1. Kerry, YOu have much too much time on your hands. Go clean out the garage.

  2. I think that was supposed to be:

    Kerry, you have much too much time on your hands. Go clean out the garage.

  3. These people are scum.

  4. Kerry–I’ve got a better idea than you filling your time with cleaning the garage, allow me to take you out on a date. The garage won’t buy you dinner.

  5. The couple first met at Colgate University, where Mr. Sroka saw Ms. Spiegel strolling across campus in expensive-looking flip-flops. ?Prada?? he asked.

    ?I thought he was a freak,? Ms. Spiegel said.

    I happened to be taking a drink of water when I read that. Nearly choked to death laughing.

  6. Google needs to start a Lonely Hearts Club under the heading, “I’m getting Lucky.”
    The hell with just feeling Lucky.

    Google would need to provide explicit images of Lucky.

    Note that Lucky is like Pat… universally fetching.

  7. “I happened to be taking a drink of water when I read that. Nearly choked to death laughing.”

    Uh…. why? Not why-did-you-nearly-choke-to-death-laughing, but why-were-you-laughing-in-the-first-place.

    Long story short: been there, done that. Hopefully learned a lesson or two.

  11. I can see it coming.
    Lucky Pat and mediageek will be cyberspace-humping by the end of this thread.

    Don’t you need some sort of Firewire2 enabled dongle to do that these days?

  12. Crap.

    I did it again.

  13. “Crap.

    I did it again.”

    What does Britney Spears’ next album have to do with this?

  14. Don’t ask me trick questions.

  15. Would it be gauche to say oy vey?

  16. wait…these are real?

  17. I get enough hits to my blog off searches for the phrase “things to say to a man” or some variant to notice. Maybe this is why. I’m disappointing a lot of people, if so.

  18. Chekov? Wasn’t that O. Henry?
