MetaAnniversary: FizzRecordings? nightFizz? September 11, 2019 8:54 AM   Subscribe

On this exact date, one year ago, I messaged Nightrecordings via MeMail to discuss this post about Serena Williams at the US Open. One thing led to another and...we're now married. I wouldn't have the love of my life without this community. I want to thank everyone here who made that possible. Apologies for the selfishness of this MetaTalk. I love you Nightrecordings! ❀️

I realize this post is a bit selfish and corny, but we're very happy. And I think we need to share more of the happy things in life with each other. :-)

Counterargument: This is the best possible use of MetaTalk. Counterargument wins, issue resolved.

Congratulations to you both! You are lovely people. ❀️

This is not only the best use of MetaTalk, but also the best way to commemorate the date of September 11th.

It's also good to know that MeFi's Fizz has an interest other than video games. Here's hoping you too always play together.

Well, that's extremely adorable! Congratulations and best wishes.

Leaving all else aside, it is not even remotely selfish and corny to post this since it's obviously a useful anecdote about Why Metafilter Is Different, like the cat-rescue-at-Devil's-Tower story.

nightFizz?

For some reason this caused the Commodores' "Night Shift" to pop into my head, specifically a modification of this line:

Gonna be some sweet sounds
Coming down
On the nightFizz
