One week ago, I announced a one-week vacation from blogging and made a promise
to return with a Q&A post. Several people left questions
for me, so here goes.
From other posts on your blog, it seems you make your living doing
some kind of writing, yes? If you don’t mind revealing it to the masses,
of work do you do?
It depends on what you mean by "make your living." When I have a job, it usually
involves writing of some sort. I have written technical manuals, sales copy,
materials, print ads, and one corporate Christmas card. I have a degree in journalism,
but I have never worked as a journalist and never intend to. You
have read some of my work if you have ever purchased a Dell PowerEdge server
for the included OpenManage software, or if you have ever been a member of the
Computer Books Direct book club or the Reader’s Subscription book club. Currently,
though, I am not making any sort of living and not doing any sort of work because
I don’t have any sort of job. I have been on my own financially ever
during which time I have worked many temporary jobs, all of which have involved
either writing or editing. Those of you who are praying people might continue
any prayers on my behalf.
Since I’m planning a wedding, what were some of the highlights
of yours, other than the fact that you married the wonderful Mrs. Happy?
Everything about my wedding was wonderful. The location, the music, the well-wishers,
the ceremony, the reception, the night that followed…it was absolutely the
best wedding I’ve ever attended. One thing to keep in mind when you’re planning
your wedding: it’s your wedding. Plan an event you’ll want to remember
for the rest of your life. Not everyone will like everything you plan. That’s
fine. They can forget about it tomorrow—you can’t. Other people don’t have
to approve of or even understand your choices. They just need to support
you in the vows that you make.

I sang a couple of songs during the prelude, including a duet with my friend
Matt. I also picked
out all the songs Matt sang during the prelude. My song choices were unconventional

And what is the funniest thing that happened?
Our youngest bridesmaid (12 years old) became sick during the ceremony. She
handed her bouquet to my sister, ran outside,
and then rejoined
the wedding party. She acted with such poise and discretion that most people
didn’t even notice. That’s what I think is the funniest thing, anyway. Most
other people seem to find a lot of humor in the fact that I cried like a
baby from the moment Mrs. Happy appeared until the moment we left the chapel.

I’m assuming you’re either a comment spammer or a Dadaist. Either way, I have
no use for you.
how to understand husband after marriage?
You asked this question through a search engine referral, but I’ll still answer
it. One of the main things that wives seem to have trouble understanding
is that their husbands do not think like a woman. So first of all, accept
the fact that when your husband speaks and acts, his motivations are not
what yours would be. Second, accept the fact that he needs your respect and
even especially when he doesn’t deserve it. Third, observe
his actions to discover how he expresses love and how he receives it. These
things should help you understand him. When in doubt, though, just talk to
Would you please post another photo of the cutest baby in the world?
I just can’t get enough.
Neither can I.
