Hey guys, it's Dustin!

Hey friends! Today is my birthday and I'm taking the day off, so my fiance is taking over my blog! Such a sweetheart, isn't he!? ;)

* * *

Hello everyone! You probably don't know me, but I'm Dana's fiance. My name is Dustin and I'm the luckiest guy in the world. Why? Because I just won $10 on this scratch-off lottery ticket. Oh, and I'm also with Dana ;)

Dana and I met on the interweb -- Myspace in particular (remember Myspace? lol) -- and we started off as friends because I never thought I'd be lucky enough to meet her. Actually, I thought she was an e-celebrity because she had like 50,000 friends on Myspace.

I would spam her every day on AIM with links to stories that I wrote on my blog, and she slowly realized how awesome I was. We were both in relationships with other people at the time -- shady, I know. One day, we decided that I should visit her in Toronto, so we broke up with our bfs and gfs and I headed over to Canadia to meet my future wife for the first time in person.

You know how some people meet and there are magical sparks? Well, Dana and I had a cosmic explosion between us. It was like the sun collapsed on itself and then exploded, wiping out the whole galaxy... but in a good way. I didn't want to leave two days later, but we said our temporary goodbyes.

I returned about two weeks later and had a so-so time. Just kidding -- it was even more awesome than the previous time with her. The only crappy part was when I swiped the side of my car against a concrete pillar in a parking garage. That sucked, but that car ended up being a monumental piece of metal poo anyway, so whatever.

After my fourth visit, I went on a four day vacation to Los Angeles because I got plane tickets for $9 each way. Who could turn that down? The day I returned home and went to work, my boss called me into his office and fired me for being on the internet too much at work.

I know you're thinking "that sucks," but it was actually the best thing that's ever happened to me. I had three choices after that:

1) Try to find another job in Michigan.
2) Move to Alabama where my parents live, stay with them, and start over -- but I'd be twenty hours away from Dana.
3) Throw away most of my belongings and pile whatever clothes I could into the trunk of my car, and cross the border into Canada with my cat.

Option 3 seemed like the most logical to me because I had strong feelings for Dana and decided I'd rather be broke and in love in Canada than semi-broke in the U.S. dating girls that weren't Dana.

Dana took me in and supported me like a sugar mama for THREE YEARS while I went through the arduous immigration process. I'll be indebted to her forever, emotionally and financially. Simply put, she saved me. Kinda like Jesus.

Fast forward almost four years and we're still together and make eachother laugh every day. Sometimes we can read each others' minds. I'll be singing a song in my head, and she will somehow start singing it out loud at the exact part that I left off in my mind. Where is William Shatner to say "Is that weird or what?"

I used to be a ladies man, but now I'm a Daney's man. That's my nickname for her... Daney Bizmo. I usually just call her Bizmo. Lately, I've been calling her Pimzbro because it sounds like Bizmo and all my nicknames eventually evolve into something else that's more fun to say.

Dana, thank you for letting me write this blog post, but I am very hungry now and you're making me do the dishes today. Still, I love you and want to wish you the happiest birthday ever!
