engagement

alan and krista came into the office tonight.neither was working and at first i thought it wasn't odd they came in. krista asked about hogeboom being booted off survivor and commented on how it happened on both our days off since we had been on shift during all the previous survivor episodes.

anyway, alan says, "come here" and they both started toward hayden's desk. melanie was over there, too. they called eric over. j.r. stayed at his cubicle. i mumbled to alan, 'is it was i think it is?" he said yes. krista announced that several hours earlier, alan proposed to her while they were putting up the xmas tree. she said she was full of sap and dirty. he handed her a new xmas bulb with their names on it. she thought it was weird and looked back. and there was alan on one knee.

al this time, she kept trying to guess where and when alan was proposing to her. i guess he picked a time she was not expecting. perfect thing to do. that's the surprise part.

they're planning a december 2006 wedding.
it's good to see friends happy and in love.
