Himself the Elf

This is my SO/spouse/DH/lo-vah (see this discussion at Slap of the Day for more amusing and annoying euphemisms). He reminds me of a giant elf with his pointy chin and twinkly eyes.

We were preparing for our yearly "Mardi Gras in November" party. I made him shuck his shirt for the photo, but he insisted on putting it back on for the party (rats). I think the hairy chest and pale skin make the picture, don't you?

The beads he's wearing feature road signs with dirty messages on them. My friend Maria bought them for me in New Orleans during an academic conference we were attending. She put them around my neck with a smile and we stood there talking to various colleagues, some of whom I wanted to impress, for almost an hour before I finally looked down and realized that my necklace said things like STOP AND BLOW and INTERCOURSE 69. Maria had a good laugh. I passed along the favor by making G-money wear them for the party.

Yes, we are the very definition of klassy. Keep an eye out for pictures of our newborn wearing the same beads (and no shirt).

Could you guys be any cuter? I think the answer is no. You could not be cuter. I am now madly in love with both of you.

That picture is adorable, and you guys are an amazing couple.

Before our first daughter was born, I was planning birth announcements with pictures in them and S said to me "What if we have a really ugly baby?"

No worries with you and G.
