Celebrating Us

Long before we were married, and even before diabetes entered the picture, Trey and I were just two broke college students.  For our first Valentine's Day as a couple, we ordered a pizza from our college meal plan and watched a Disney movie in his dorm.  We continued that tradition yesterday by ordering a large pizza with bacon and mushroom.  Our life is not so simple nowadays with both of us working engineering jobs, remodeling a house, and keeping up with 4 animals running around our house.  But I still love the simple ways we say, "I love you." 

Said dorm room. 

We both lean towards the "geek" side of the personality spectrum, and so for Valentine's Day I'd like to dig up a poem I sent to him on Valentine's Day four years ago. 

Love song for Geeks and Engineers. (Author Unknown)
I was alone and all was dark
Beneath me and above
My life was full of volts and amps
...But not the spark of love

But now that you are here with me
My heart is overjoyed
You turn the square of my heart
Into a sinusoid

You load things from my memory
Onto my system's bus
My life was once assembly code
Now it's C++

I love the way you solder things
My circuits you can fix
The voltage across your diode is
much more than just point six

With your amps and resistors
You have built my integrator
I cannot survive without you
You are my function generator

You have charged my life, increased my gain
And made my maths discreet
And now I'll end my poem here
Control, Alt, and Delete.


  1. 2 things:

    1. I have your background print in fabric, how awesome is that??
    2. Thank you SO MUCH for posting that poem! My husband is an engineer and I'm making his valentine this year, and this is totally going in it! Thank you!
