  1. So happy for you both! Thanks for sharing your proposal–clever and on the mark for a great match.


  2. Wonderful! Fantastic! And 5 other superlatives!
    PS. No 2 x 2 tables for the epidemiologists like me?


  3. How can one say no after a song like that??? Congratulations to you both!


  4. LZ is clearly a very lucky lady, though I wouldn’t have tried your approach on my (non-nerd) wife. Especially since I can’t sing. Congratulations!


  5. GC and LZ,

    What great news!!!!!

    I agree with commenter number 3. :-)

    Have you set a date?


    • Thanks, everyone! Yes, Bob — June 19th. (Thursday is the new Saturday!)
