New news

on Aug 14, 2005 at 04:55 UTC ( #483660=poem: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I had a news article in my brain but now it is gone. I'll update this post when it pops back in my brain.

I'm sorry, but I just asked my girlfriend to marry me earlier today and my brain is now gone. I do promise to update this node with appropriate perl news in a day or so. Right now is too much to think.


#!/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Proposal_class; my $gf_name = "Rebecca"; my $proposal = $Proposal_class->new(); $proposal->purchase_ring(-max => 2500, -options => [ 'gold band', 'med +ium rock' ] ); $proposal->hide_ring(-where => 'box of chocolates'); $proposal->dinner(-where => 'future inlaws place', -what => 'sloppy jo +es'); $proposal->bending_of_knee(-who => 'girlfriend with flu', -where => 'l +iving room'); $proposal->ask($gf_name . ", will you marry me?"); $prososal->end;

    Maybe "I just asked my girlfriend to marry me earlier today" was the news, if not that's enough! Congratulations!

      I think the answer to that question would be the news, rather than the question ;)

      Anyways, what script did you (OP) use? (... to make it slightly more Perlmonks material)


      All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.

    Congrats Jason. Here's to hoping that she didn't sneeze on you before saying yes.

    Maybe you could update your post with some code generating output, something along the lines of:

    if ( $proposal->response =~ /yes/i ) { print "All right! Let's get hitched!\n"; }
    I hope that your future wife feels better soon. :)

    IMHO, the down votes for this node are a bit harsh. The guy is very happy and over-joy by the "News" that he is getting married. Not being in his right mind at the time; it just may not have occurred to him that Announcements was a better place for this. I am not one to tell others how to vote, I just wanted to help others share in his happieness.
