Guy proposes with engraved Zune, she accepts

Posted by Brier Dudley

I hope this guy doesn't work at Microsoft's PR firm, because that would be taking things too far.

According to Gizmodo, Ben Podbielski proposed on Wednesday by presenting his girlfriend a pink Zune loaded with a slideshow set to romantic music. In the last frame, it said, "Sooo .... Turn The Zune Over."

On the back he'd used the Zune engraving service to etch "Will you marry me?" into the device.

Should we call that a Podbielskicast? At least he didn't ask by squirting her.

Breaths and beautiful sounds.

In the amazing
song of a little
blackbird chanting
alone in a beautiful
dream I hear
glimmers of magical
quietness, the love
for the dark and
a tender idea
recalling the silence.

At the Mercy.

In the resonant
cypress situated,
like a trembling
leaf, in the breath
of a novel and
innocent morning,
a sparrow alights
and always, in the
sun's redness, a
delicate flake
discovers a dream.

Happy Christmas Brier
