I’m engaged!

Posted on March 22nd, 2005 in by jud || 24 Comments

On our recent trip to Mono Lake, Magda Jusinska agreed to marry me! I’m very happy and excited. No date has been set yet, but we’re planning to get married this year!


A few people have asked how these pictures were taken. I put the camera on a tripod, and, using the Canon Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3, I set it to interval mode so that it would take a picture every 2 seconds. I had told Magda that I wanted us to take a picture together, and so we did!

    I LOVE it. We are SO happy for you. We TOTALLY approve. We think Magda is wonderful. We think Jud is a stud. And we happen to think marriage is the ultimate adventure. Kids are pretty fun too by the way. ; -)

    As a geologist, I totally approve of your choice in location to propose. Just think about all the amazingly powerful volcanic activity that surrounded that moment.

    Lots of love,

    Congratssss Man…it is that time on a man’s life that we should
    make the big proposal! But remember, just because you have
    bought the ring and made the big proposal does not mean that you
    are chained up yet!!! :) But will soon :) Don’t worry, it is a good thing though.
