ten years!

I can hardly believe it, Stuart and I have been married for ten years! It doesn't seem that long since we were at a party at our South African friends' flat in Moscow and then we decided to go see what a Russian Orthodox Christmas service was like. (The Russians have their Christmas a bit late.) So after a bunch of us had been standing around in a church near Red Square for awhile, getting dazzled by candles, I worked up the courage to ask Stuart for his phone number. We didn't even kiss for ages, because he was my best friend and I didn't want to spoil anything if he didn't fancy me that way, so everyone thought we were a couple for months before we actually were. The first time he kissed me was in the Kremlin Gardens and the next day I had to go to work and write headlines and photo captions for The Moscow Times and the following day's newspaper read like total nonsense.
Hooray for Stuart! Putting up with a messy illustrator is not always easy.

This was for a different party, but look at the fabulous hat my sister made our of construction paper. (Just to add, the person wearing it is not my sister.)

Hee hee! I was really chuffed to get this photo from mangazebra of her Vern and Lettuce coffee mug:

Viviane, Gary and I move into our new studio this weekend! We're so excited! More news on that soon...

10 years congrats, you'll have to get something made out of tin to celebrate.

I was thinking that! I even scribbled out a whole comic about it, but then I just decided to draw us as superheroes because the comic wasn't that funny.

Happy 10th!
You two make excellent superheroes!

Congratulations to you both -- I love the how we met story. And great news about the studio too, I can only imagine the works of genius that will come out of that meeting of minds. Maybe I'll bring Esme by for a field trip if/when we make it to the UK...

Thanks! And yes, we'll have a big yard beneath the studio, so Esme could run circles there if she got tired of looking at three people staring into their computers. ;-D

Will you schedule at least an evening next time you're in town (or if we ever make it to Londinum) to hang around with Kaija and I? We will be hitting the big ten year mark this upcoming April. Congratulations and love to you both.

congrats to both of you!

I love the hat pic, and I am inspired to plan a silly hat crafting party! :)

Congratulations! I like your victory drawing a lot!

Well done! I've been married about ten minutes!
Aug. 1st, 2009 11:27 am (UTC)
Ha ha! Don't tell me you're checking your e-mail ten minutes after your wedding! ;-D
Aug. 2nd, 2009 03:59 pm (UTC)
Hee! Hee! Not quite! I got married two weeks after I met you at The Thing.

She suggested we spend an hour on the internet on our honeymoon one day in Iceland and I got a barrage of abusive messages on Facebook for going on the web whilst on our honeymoon! It was her idea in the first place!
