23 March 1979
Posted by Teresa at 09:29 AM *

Twenty-four years ago today, Patrick and I got married, which in my opinion gives this space-time continuum a fair claim on being the best of all possible worlds.

And people have been screwing up your last name ever since. But I'm sure it was worth it. Happy anniversary, and congratulations!

Congrats.

Looks like my entry in the marriage pool wins! Now hurry and split up so that I can collect. But of course you two are the real winners: long may your happiness continue.

Woo! Happy anniversary!

Twenty-four years. That's not too m%$~~~
NO CARRIER
OK

It is unwise, even for a moment, to forget Debbie Notkin's ninja abilities.

Oh. Happy anniversarial iteration. And of course this begins the countdown to Silver, so let the advance planning begin.

#15 ::: Kate Nepveu ::: (view all by) ::: March 23, 2003, 03:37 PM:

Cool, congratulations.

(We were talking to one of Chad's great-uncles this weekend, and he said that he was coming up on his _59th_ year of marriage. Something to shoot for...)

Big ditto!

#17 ::: Claude Muncey ::: (view all by) ::: March 23, 2003, 04:55 PM:

Despite it all, have a wonderful anniversary --

(How the time do fly -- Marilee and I have our 24th in December -- how strange it feels some days.)

#18 ::: Madeleine Reardon Dimond ::: (view all by) ::: March 23, 2003, 05:13 PM:

Congratulations, and thanks for showing us all the way.

Congratulations and thanks for setting a great example. :-)

Then maybe the space-time continuum has an effect on dreams?!

Somewhere toward the end of my dreams last night, I saw you both dressed to the nines at a big party (for some reason I think it was Pier 4).

Anyway, I gave you a toast there, so I'll give you a toast here. Many happy returns!

#22 ::: Teresa Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: March 23, 2003, 08:58 PM:

Thank you all. We had a pleasant day -- making music, fiddling with computers, talking politics -- and just got home from a sedately happy dinner.

Lucky me!

Why am I the last to know? Wishing you many more years of wedded bliss!

#31 ::: Xopher ::: (view all by) ::: March 24, 2003, 05:29 PM:

Your marriage took place in the first blush of Spring. Therefore, this wish: may your joy in your marriage ever renew, bubbling up like the melting water, gentle and warm as the March Sun, hopeful as the new buds, beautiful as fresh flowers.

Okay--so I am a little late. But been out and about and Bostoning.

Congratulations.Twenty-four years is good. Forty years--as David and I celebrated last Sept.--is better. Keep on trucking and you will get there, too!

Maybe we should have a Scottish celebration.I lift a haggis in your direction.

#37 ::: Teresa Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: March 25, 2003, 07:13 PM:

I wave back, happily, secure in the knowledge that that haggis cannot reach me here.

You chose to get married on my birthday? Damn shower-uppers.

#39 ::: Debbie Notkin ::: (view all by) ::: March 26, 2003, 12:59 AM:

Hmmm. Ninja powers. Use ... Only ... For ... Good.

Anyway, belated warm congrats to both of you. I remember that day well, though I missed the wedding itself.
