Warning: This is a long story. Back in 2003, I was trying to research exactly what gear Jimmy Page used. The internet was young then and I was having a hard time finding the info I was looking for. Somehow, I got redirected to a place called Delphi Forums. Delphi Forums was a place that had a lot of different chat rooms for many different topics. Back in the day there were only 21 people per chat room and they had a dialog box and when someone typed something other people would type and whatever the first person typed, their sentence would move up and out of the dialog box as other people added comment so you had just a few seconds to come up with a clever or relevant reply. I loved it because it kept my wit sharp and quick. Anyway, one day I got an email from someone there who asked where I was and to get my "arse" in there to talk. I didn't know who it was but it ended up being this woman from Australia. We started talking a lot between us and eventually she called me from Sydney while I was in Memphis, TN. The first thing I noticed was her voice. It had a wonderful tone and I loved her accent. A Sydney accent is not like Steve Irwin, who had a northern Aussie accent plus she had some leftover London accent from her time spent there. Turns out she was in Delphi forums in an adoption forum and had managed to end up in the chat room I was in. This wasn't a hook up or cyber chat room, just friendly banter. I asked her to send me a picture and she kept stalling and I was about to end it because she didn't send the picture. She finally did and my heart sank. She was gorgeous and I was pretty sure she was out of MY league but I sent her a picture of me anyway. She thought I was cute. Who knew? We chatted and texted and phoned each other for a solid year and we fell in love without ever being in the same hemisphere. We made plans for her to come visit me and the day came for her flight to land at LAX. To say it was weird is an understatement. I mean, I was in love with this woman and I was just getting to smell her after a year of knowing her. It took about a day and then it was like I had always known her. We married soon after... on 4.20.2005. Today is our 15 year anniversary. Us at the Bagdad Cafe. Soon after getting married. A few years ago. I'm a weird guy (yes, I said it) and most people don't "get" me. I understand that and it's okay because she's weird, too.
