A wise man once said...

One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them.

I thought I'd give you all a peek at the ring similar to the one I presented to the now Mrs. Disco. For those of you not yet in the know, I proposed to her May 27th, during an intimate (get your mind out of the gutter, TK) moment. This marked a great day in my life, as we are in the process of planning our wedding. We've gone through a few permutations on the idea, and now we're leaning toward a local affair at our church with a live band and catered by In n' Out. Seriously. If any of my readers that haven't jumped ship due to my lack of posts lately have any ideas, please feel free to offer them.

As a side note, just a few things that I sacrificed to afford The One Ring:

An X-Box 360, a PS3, with extra controllers
100 lap dances at Cap'n Creams
A new flat screen TV

I'm just sayin'.


TK said...

Don't ask me for advice - my wedding was at a wine farm in South Africa. My mother did all the planning (which, I must say, is awesome).

But that aside, that's a stunner of a ring. Here I thought you had given her a plastic decoder ring that you won at a carnival. Seems you're something of a gentleman after all.

Wait, did I really just call you that?

Bella said...

Beautiful ring. Really. Congratulations.

Vermillion said...

Yes you did, tk. And now he has a record of it. Way to go.

That really is a nice ring, Manny. And using the LOTR quote? Kinda foreboding for this sort of thing, ain't it?

What kind of bank are you making where you can afford that (or any of the stuff on your whiny bitch list) without doing any work? I say that because nobody can be online as much as you and have an honest job.

Unless people pay for you to test their bounce houses.

Congratulations! I've been tuning in to your schtick over at the Offsprung. My advice - keep it simple and make sure it's about you two.

Bianca Reagan said...

In n' Out? How eclectic. I'd show up for the free food alone.

Jayne said...

Awwwww... you two are lucky to have each other.

and in a few years, that flat-screen tv will be 1/2 the price anyway.

when are the nups?

Manny said...

TK - Am all gentleman, bitch.

Bella - Hey! Thanks for the comment. I picked out the ring myself after she told me she wanted it.

Vermillion - I like to think of my job as my own little Enron.

Slouch - Daddy Slouch! How goes the birthin'?

Bianca - You're more than welcome to come. Maybe I'll have a "Bloggers Only" table. It'll be the one in the corner with all the bitchy people getting hammered. You'll find me under it.

Jayne - Hey Doll! No date set, but she ain't goin' nowhere...right?

Dude In-N-Out for catering = fucking awesome idea. Who doesn't like In-N-Out? Only communists and pedophiles that's who. Especially if they make shakes too.

Congrats to you and the soon to be Mrs. Beaut of a ring.

shay said...

I'm new to your blog but just wanted to say, "hey". Love the ring! Amazingly beautiful! You have a very lucky lady:)
Congrats and all that!

Chez said...

Yes, but will the ring give you a kick-ass new platform for Halo 3?

I thought not.

Manny said...

Thanks Chez. Just pour salt in the wound. Got any Iodine handy?


I love you in the face said...

My Mom saw the ring and actually called me to talk about how gorgeous it is. Yes, my Mom reads your blog.

(Thanks to you I now plan to get the phrase "Your Mom Reads My Blog" emblazoned on a t-shirt immediately.)

Also, congrats!!!

Manny said...

Ooooh, you better get that shirt made before I do. I'll wear it with my "I heart Booty" trucker hat.

Jamie said...

awesome, congrats
