When I propose, it'll be with a photoshopped image with a message attached to a movie fan site. Possibly on a Yahoo Serious message board.

looks up 'exculpatory' at dictionary.com
oh...'ex culpa'...d'uh


I visited theforce.net, and it was linked from the front page. Which bit should I be sorry for? :)

I'm not sure. Does Star Wars, poetry, marriage and Jesus sound like a winning mixture to you? :)

At least he didn't say, "I want to bury my saber in you, once we're good in the eyes of the Lord." Right?

The ceremony will be performed Boba Fett, official memebr of the Universal Life Church. Dinner of braised ewok will be served promptly at eight, followed by the most grievous display of white guy dancing ever seen on god's green earth (since my wedding that is).

That geeky guy is gonna make that geeky gal right happy. She said yes -- after their wedding ceremony, they'll likely walk under an arch of upraised light sabres like good Jedis-in-training. . . what? Light sabres don't really exist? Only toys? Um, uh, nevermind.

Is brandishing a weapon chivalry? Did he just kill the other suitors or is it a not-so-subtle threat?

Star TREK!?! You best be careful, or you're gonna get smacked around -- or, rather, flailed at oh-so-weakly by the atrophied arms of outraged nerds.

Is it just me, or is that pic from the Sears Portrait Studio? It's too bad she couldn't show her acceptance of his proposal with a pic from Glamour Shots of her holding a Hummel figurine.

"I'll share this: Lisa and I have resolved not to kiss each other until the preacher says "you may kiss the bride"

Ok, no sex until marriage I can understand...no kissing until marriage--d00d, what if she's got bad breath?

Wouldn't a TRUE fanboy have dressed up appropriately for this? Darth Vader gear, Luke's karate-like robe, SOMEthing...?

From his website: I can relate to Luke Skywalker a lot: we both grew up on lonely farms a reasonable distance away from developed areas. When I was growing up I used to spend many a night looking at the lights from distant Greensboro hovering just above the trees on the horizon, and wonder what was going on out there... much as Luke stares wistfully into the Tatooine sunset yearning for adventure.

Well, doesn't that explains a lot!

"I can relate to Luke Skywalker a lot" -- oh, your father was evil and cut off your hand too? There's a lot of that goin' around.

Er, you're kidding, right? what an odd, odd thing.

No kissing before marriage is weird.

But besides that, just how do they tell this story years from now? (assuming it lasts, and he isn't lured away by the dark side of the infidelity) I'd interesting in hearing predictions...
"Well, Johnny, your father and I were very nerdy."
"Like you wore glasses?"
"Nerdier..."

Now I've been from one side of this galaxy to the other. But I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all powerful force, controlling everything.

I thought that true believers in Christ didn't dally in the fantasy realm for fear of being branded a witch or something.

THAT WHOLE THINGS was very disturbing. What a weirdo. I like Star Wars as much as the rest out there, but that's a little bit obsessive.

Gah - Star Wars is just Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in space.

Funny, though I doubt they'll name their kid John.

Maybe the girl is Star Wars obsessive and he's just playing along. After the priest (or Jedi, or whatever) pronounces them man and wife, he'll be all like "Ha! Finally I can throw away these Protocol Droid lego kits and go back to watching NASCAR!"
