MP3 of the Week: "6 Years" Edition


It's been six years since we dropped the moniker "Bachelor" Supercomputer for the more commonly known "Mr." And amazingly, we're still not a bachelor and not poisoned in my sleep. So a big "Thank You" and "I'll try harder" to Mrs. Supercomputer for putting up with this shit (and this shit) for six long years.

We've (we're using the "plural" form of "we" now) lived in about eight different residences. We've obtained one advanced degree and are starting work on another. We've had two children, countless jobs, and probably a fair number of fights too. We've gotten fat and thin and fat and thin together via pregnancy and Tikka Masaala. We've been to the movie theater, like, four times. Our eye prescriptions have both plummeted a couple points and will probably continue to do so. We've been to zoos, baseball stadiums, museums, national parks, both coasts, sea level and one of the highest points in the continental U.S. We've had one car, two cars, and no cars. We've ordered hundreds of delivery Chinese meals and invariably ended up throwing away the leftovers and had several cavities. We've Netflixed exactly 198 movies starting with Three Kings and Shaun of the Dead (both rated 4 stars).

You really can squeeze a lot in to six years when you're not thinking about it. The MP3 of the Week is one of the ones that was at our wedding commemorating Day 1 of this union. And even on Day 2192 I am still amazed, surprised, and enamored.
