News of the Taal

Postby Taalcon » Wed Sep 27, 2006 8:47 am

I posted this over at Hatrack back when Pweb was floundering in Outer Darkness. But I thought y'all would like to know these 2 Juicy Tidbits:

1) - November 15, I will begin serving a 2-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (I'm 24, and a convert of 2.5-ish years). I will be serving in the Washington, Seattle Mission, and be teaching in Spanish, which I don't know yet, but will learn during two prepratory months in the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah.

2) - I'm engaged (!!!). And to a girl who will also be serving a mission during the same period that I will be. So the general question as to 'will she wait' becomes much more of a moot point *grin* - She got the ring (and roses) a little over a week ago. We've known our plans for a while, but were waiting for her to have the Shiny Rock on her finger before we made it public.

I have enjoyed my time here at Pweb since we first created it, and look forward to rejoining the community upon my return. You guys have had an amazing effect on my life. Thanks for all the good times!

I'll still be here on and off until I leave, however. You haven't seen the last of me...

I've said it before, but here again, congratulations! That is absolutely wonderful and I hope your mission and wedding following are powerful and wonderful experiences.

You won't be able to post here, I think, but you could send emails that could be posted here.

As you know I am extremely happy for you. I hope you have a great time during your mission. Take care of yourself and we will still be here upon your return. I am sure I speak for many others when I say that we look forward to hearing of your wedding details, which will likely be ironed out upon your return.

congratulations, Dave!
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

That's awesome Dave. You're coming to Seattle? Hehe, hope you like rain. That's all it does around here.

Closer than me? Frankly, shawn, i'm insulted.

Congratulations Taal, give them hell. Or heaven, i guess, would be more fitting. And congratulations to you and your lovely lady.

One of pweb's oldest threads (the oldest non locked one was an avatar PSA)

and there's good reason to bump it. :D
