Paris Proposal, May 2002

In May I was back in Paris for a while and proposed to Emily!  And what a proposal, but that is another story.  Well, I actually wrote the wedding proposal in the form of an engineering proposal for a job involving "Deep Foundations".  The final product (included below) is almost 10 pages long and includes a Microsoft Project schedule detailing our life so far and also how our future is envisioned.  Because of limitations of the software I was not able to plan more than 50 years in advance.  No engagement ring was given since I was afraid of being ripped off (besides being cheap).  Also, Emily wanted a ruby in a platinum band so it made sense to pick it out together at a future date.  By the way, ladies, if you are proposed to, do not put off getting the ring.  We have been married over a year now, and I still haven't seen hide nor hair of that ring.  Of course, he has a great excuse:  Well, we only have X amount of money, and you can use it to buy a ring, but keep in mind, this money is also for our house....
