When Bloggers Marry

SYSTEMS ADMIN: The vows you are about to take are to be made in the presence of the Ultimate Admin, who is judge of all and knows the secrets of your deleted browsing histories; therefore if either of you knows a reason why you may not lawfully link your blogs in holy union, you must declare it now, or forever lose user privileges.

BLOGGER A: I, ________, take thee ______, to be my wedded co-blogger, to /have and to /hold from this day forward, for better for worse, for Digg recs or for system crash, in full connectivity and in areas with no wi-fi, to /love and to /cherish, 'til Final Deletion do us part, according to the Ultimate Admin's ordinance; and thereto I pledge thee all my account passwords.

I vow to be your faithful co-blogger, understanding that account merging is a lifelong union, and not to be entered into lightly, or while chatting to someone else on IM in the bg, for the purpose of mutual fellowship, encouragement and understanding; for the procreation of new junior blogging accounts and their physical and spiritual nurture. I hereby give myself to you in this cause with my sacred vow before the Ultimate Admin.

BLOGGER B: (Ctrl+V) (Ctrl+C) Search: 'Blogger A', Replace All: 'Blogger B', Enter.

SYSTEMS ADMIN: Anyone in the blogroll knowing of any reason why these accounts should not be joined in HTML union, Tweet now, or forever hold thy peace.

/quiet

SYSTEMS ADMIN: Will you, the blogroll of A and B, support and uphold them in their merged accounts, pointing out dead links and correcting spelling now and in the years to come?

BLOGROLL: Yes.

SYSTEMS ADMIN: And in the style of Battlestar Galactica?

BLOGROLL: SO SAY WE ALL.

SYSTEMS ADMIN: There will now play a randomly selected iTunes favourites playlist (rating:**** or more, genre: 'Scandinavian'+'electronica'), as Bloggers A+B log off, to reconvene in World of Warcraft, where we will all /dance.

Flickr pics will be uploaded later, when some turn up that don't show Blogger A grimacing wildly at the camera, or Blue Kitten howling the place down while showing her pants.

As a friend wrote to me when I got married: "Now we know it's not true what's written about you on the wall of the disabled toilet."

Jayne said...

At least post a picture of the pasties...

Orbyn said...

Congratulations! May you both enjoy quality pasties together for many years to come :)

PS: Does this mean I have to get you a paper pastie next March?

Vicus Scurra said...

Thank you again for not inviting me.

But we WANT to see that pic of blue kitten. She must have been the star of the show.

Congratulations! It's sad to see your magnificent hair taken off the market now for good, but at least it will be well looked after.

Fat Roland said...

A bit sore you didn't invite me to be chief bridesmaid, but you know... well done and that. Sniff.

Valerie said...

You guys are so wonderfully and compatibly geeky. Tee hee.

My problems with the concept of "pasties on the beach" is that I'm American, so I get a vision of a stripper lounging in her thong on the sand.

Congrats :-)

Congratulations! hope the wedding went without any system errors :)

Marsha Klein said...

One day all weddings will be like this (probably).

Blue Kitten obviously has already mastered the art of being a fairly typical wedding guest (or is that just the weddings I go to?)

Congratulations and very best wishes to you both.
