Did Gordon actually sit down and think, ‘I know, I’ll write a poem (poorly written in parts) to my girlfriend over Facebook asking her to marry me. That way, all my family and friends will know I’ve asked her. There’s no way that this can be a bad plan. I’m so romantic.’
By the way, great message Gordon is sending to his potential wife – I love you so much and want to spend the rest of my life with you, but not so much that I’m willing to turn off my computer for five minutes to ask in person.
good grief I hate these turds who profess their love on their girls facebook wall to try and be romantic as if they are the first fucking couple to be in love…puke. I hope she said “no”. Actually I hope she said “no you fucking loser”…..on his wall and then “defriends” him. what a bitch…oh and shitty poem
To be fair, he’s probably no older than 15 and his relationship with Raegan up to this point has consisted of sitting two rows behind her in Spanish class last semester. I once had a similar relationship with the first girl in my class to have boobs.
As a lover of language I have to say that this poem is first rate. Definitely Hallmark standard. My personal favourite lines include, ‘I knew you’re the one where my heart will grow’, and ‘The one who give love’, and ‘will please you take my hand’. Gordon is bravely pushing the boundaries of syntax, grammar and semantics here. It’s Raegan that I’m worried about though. She was at work on a SUNDAY?!
I would just like to state that the only “Raegan” to show up in a Facebook search is for a poet named Raegan Butcher.
Which gives us a few scenarios. First and most likely is that Gordon doesn’t know how to spell his potential wife’s name. Second is that Raegan said no and deleted her Facebook page out of humiliation. Third and least entertaining is that she isn’t part of the public search.
tell them you’re having a huge chili con carne cook-off, followed by an attempt at the world record for biggest ever scat party. tell them you need industrial cleaning products, the sheer volume and number of which can’t be catered for by the retail sector, nor wholesalers, but only by europe’s biggest hygiene product suppliers themselves.
Ironic, moi?! That comment was written using the serious voice inside me head. You know, my serious voice, the one I use when I order coffee – a grande iced americano with an extra shot and a DASH of SKIMMED milk. I then eyeball the barista to make sure that they don’t try to slip any of that full fat poison into my nectar, because I am convinced that there is a conspiracy amongst employees of Starbarks/Costa/Nero whereby they are all trying to make me FAT. I eyeball the fat baristas especially hard. Paranoid, moi?!
oh you’re not FAT are you l_l? i hope not. i really had the feeling we could’ve gone on for a thousand and one nights with this badinage. i read into it that you’re fat.
i guess that’s the wonderful thing about lamebook – it doesn’t matter if you’re fat. fat people can pretend they’re slim, if they want to; slim people can imagine that people who are actually fat are slim and attractive, should they so wish.
just tell me you’re not fat. scheherezade can’t be fat, or rimsky-korsakov wouldn’t've bothered.
Ok, fine, I was being ironic. But the fat conspiracy thing is absolutely true! I’m not fat at all, and have a morbid fear of ever becoming so. I’m also a control freak, so I get anxious when other people make my coffee. Err, right, I should probably go to bed before I over-divulge my crazy!
I am one of the marsupials living in diet’s folds. There are at least 20 of us in here so I wouldn’t say we’re a “small” family. But we have lots of hiding places so I do understand how he could think that.
This is isn’t REALLY that much more public than going down on bended knee in a public place like a restaurant or in front of the Eiffel tower, or on screen at a sports game or something. Just people they know will see it and not randomers.
If he’s proposing I’d assume he knows Raegan pretty well and knows that a surprise FB post might be just the kind of public informal-type gesture she would love. and I also assume that most couples have at least vaguely discussed getting married at some point before anyone makes an official proposal, even if the time and manner its done in is a complete surprise, so she has likely led him to believe that she wants to marry him.
This is not lame or even that funny. This is LB’s un-lamest post ever.
Shy is one thing. A letter could be fine for someone who is shy… definitely more romantic that a facebook wall post. But if he really is shy… then this is even more retarded: if she was to turn him down on facebook then all their friends and family would know about it too!
Maybe it’s just a cheapskate way of getting out of having to present her with a ring…
