So... to all who would care, I just wanted to announce that my lovable mad scientist Tony Stark proposed to me, and (because obviously I'm a glutton for punishment) I said yes.
Also, we are apparently now the guardians of an oh-so-charming
young lady who just this morning answered my small-talk question of "Having some cereal, hm?" with "What are you, blind? OF COURSE. Idiot."
