Our Discoversary is Almost Here

Last month we invented a word to describe the first time someone stumbles upon the online presence of a person who becomes an important part of their life; the electronic version of the day you met.  That word was DISCOVERSARY.

DISCOVERSARY – noun 1. The yearly recurrence of the day you first discovered the online presence of someone who has become an important part of your life: Our second discoversary is next month. 2. The celebration or commemoration of such a date.

-adjective 1. Pertaining to a discoversary: You should see the discoversary gift I got.

This word was suggested to me by Sarah.

The reason I wanted to create a new word was to commemorate the fact that this coming Sunday will mark two years to the day since I first discovered that my wife, The Slackmistress, existed.  (On a related note yesterday marked 15 months since we got married and as you my know, we didn’t meet for the first time until almost three months after our discoversary , so you can do the math and figure out how fast thing happened once we met.)

The reason I mention this today is because I need some more help.  While I have a word to describe the day I don’t know how to spend a second discoversary.  Should we spend it clicking blog links looking for more awesome people?  Should we read the embarrassing details of our blog archives and then watch The Thin Man?  Should I buy a gift? You tell me.

  1. You can’t go wrong with naughty lingerie.

    Works in my house, anyway.

    I think you should get a bunch of tacos and click links together.

  3. Sit in different rooms sending dirty IM to each other.

  4. betheboy

    Clay- we do that every day.

  5. Anytime is a good time for one of those amazing-looking grilled cheese sandwiches you blogged about before.

    But, I’m doing a lot of vicarious eating through friends and blogs lately, so that may just be me.

  6. You like the Thin Man? Another reason I love you guys!

    (5/6 months – is my math right?)

    well clearly you should go to the disco.

    if not, is there a cool place to eat with the #15 in it? After which, of course, the meal can be blogged. Or filmed live.

  8. Let’s see, the traditional and modern anniversary gifts for two years are cotton and china. You could wear cotton and surf sites banned in China? Or just trade avatars for the day. Congrats BTW.

  9. How ’bout checking your hosts apache logs for that day and then have gold plated bling made up of the actual http “get” command that your browser issued, including the ip address of your beloved’s server. Put them on a chain. And then exchange them. Ding! I win the nerd award!

    Nora Charles: “How many drinks have you had?”
    Nick Charles: “This will make six Martinis.”
    Nora Charles: [to the waiter] “All right. Will you bring me five more Martinis, Leo? Line them right up here. ”

    God, I love that movie. And Asta is the best movie dog ever, no question.

  11. I’ve been married 17 years. Always buy a present for your wife. Never buy her clothes.

    Oh and always keep the receipt.

  12. How about you eat some sausage links, or play some links? Dress up like Link from Legend of Zelda?

  13. Chicken ‘n Waffles at Roscoe’s!!!

  14. Paul L.

    Nothing says good times like Davey & Goliath and a few sticks of butter.

    LOL, take Kiki’s advice! I know I’m passing it on to my man. :P
