Back in 2004, when Ridley and I were out strumpeting for our first book, we did a signing at a Costco (Yes! A Costco!) in California. To our surprise and delight and mild fear, several people came dressed as pirates. A CrapCam photo of that event was blogged here. The tall guy on the left in back is the blogperson known as Mike Weasel; the woman next to him is the blogsterette known as Mad Scientist. Before that moment, they had never met. And guess what?
That's right: They never saw each other again.
On Friday night, Mad and Mike got married. I am not making this up. So, to Mike and Mad, this blog says: Congratulations, and best wishes, and may you enjoy many fine swashbuckling years together.
