Celebration and romance.

It was the husband and my anniversary a couple of weeks ago.  We didn't end up doing much - he's been working every day, I've been working a lot, and we were both kind of tired.  We had a nice dinner and we watched our new Happy Endings DVDs [are you watching this show? IT IS HILARIOUS.].  It was actually quite nice.

Do you do stuff for anniversaries?  We've never been that couple.  There have been years where we've forgotten completely, only to be reminded a few days [or weeks] after the fact by someone else. 

This year, while I was looking for a card for someone's birthday, the husband happened upon a card that had him doubled over in laughter in the Hallmark store.  I got it for him for our anniversary, because it pretty much sums up our world view:

Yup. That's pretty much it.
When you find that person who makes you laugh, and who laughs with you, it keeps you together. Even during those times when you know, just know, that you are pretty much going to hate them for the rest of your life. Surprisingly, those times pass, and the humor is still there.


  1. You're so right. I think a sense of humor is a key element to any relationship.

  2. Laughter is the key to happiness, I am convinced! (Also, the willingness to scream fuck you repeatedly and bite back the desire to bludgeon someone in their sleep with the cast iron skillet. THAT IS LOVE WHEN YOU DON'T ACT ON IT!)

    We don't celebrate anniversaries either, not really. A card here or there but for the most part, we are anti big showy expressions of happy/love on specific days. Yes, we were married on this day however many years ago but right now you're on my last damn nerve and I'd like to be able to act accordingly.

  3. I'd totally get that for my wife for our anniversary!

    Duffy & my anniversary falls on December 27, which is a month after her birthday, a few days after Christmas, a few days before my birthday, and a few days before New Year's. We're lucky if we go out to dinner. I think there have been years where I ultra-romantically grilled burgers.

  4. You are alive! Welcome back.

    I love the card!!!

  5. Oh, a sense of humor. I couldn't make it without it.


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
