Roger proposed to Lina last weekend!
But now that he's marrying Lina, I'm persuaded that we should be lifelong friends. (Just kidding, Roger, you were already "in.") For one thing, James and I need more Hispanic friends that speak Spanish. For another, anyone I can comfortably hang out and do nothing with (read: rewatch a million episodes of Lost) fits right in with the rest of my girlfriends.
I hope Roger realizes how lucky he is. When he and Lina were hiking in the woods one day they encountered a bear. Roger is six feet tall and Lina is about five feet tall. While Roger stood surprised, Lina darted in front of him and threw up her arms ("got big") to scare off the bear. Not only is Lina a tough cookie of the best sort, that's a seriously hard-core show of love. Roger is doing his best to live up to it by learning to speak Spanish.
Congratulations, Roger and Lina! And let the 2012 wedding season begin!
