(Diplomacy: Success)!!

Two quick announcements of my diplomatic skills this week

  1. I've got engaged! Full proposal, down on one knee etc. She cried. We picked out a ring together. I saw the price tag. I cried. Beautiful....
  2. I'm the next one up for the Podcast treatment! Be sure to check out episode 65 this Friday! Thanks to Liso and the guys for the opportunity

Well, I'm hoping they were diplomatic successes - at least no intentional intimidation involved, but maybe a smattering of bluff.....

...Hmm maybe I could have worked all the 3rd ed skills into my proposal... Sleight of Hand to slip the ring on unnnoticed, appraise to buy the ring cheaply, craft alchemy to slip something in her drink whilst she's not looking.....

Congratulations, to both achievements!

I tried my bluff on my wife skill (and failed) by suggesting that gold wasn't her colour and that too many diamonds would take the focus away from her beauty :)

I'll download the PodC as soon as it comes up.

I always thought that Diplomacy was one of the best skills ever. ^_^

Be sure to send me a slice of the wedding cake, will you? ;) :D :P
