“Monkey and I met online over Doctor Who and Shakespeare.  We dated very long distance till February 2010, when I moved to the UK from the US to be with him.  We got married in July 2010, and Weapon is due Jan 2011.  This is a he said/she said journal of our daily struggles to balance our relationship with new parenthood, dotted with our seperate geek musings on our loves – for Monkey, it’s social media, films, and games, and for me, it’s comics, theatre, and all things kitsch/snark.  Enjoy.”

Monkey says:

“I woo’ed her with an online rendition of a Lionel Ritchie song and the promise of naked David Tennant pictures. Foolishly, she fell for it, and I fell for her. She is honestly the funniest, silliest, warmest, most passionate, hottest and wise person I have ever been lucky to meet.

Whether we’re watching TV together, discussing her alarming similarity to Rhino The Hamster, quoting the entire script from The Matrix word-for-word, putting zombies to work, or when she’s trying to drag me onto the West End stage, we’re always laughing together. Plus, she’s the kind of woman who, for art, will sit on a bus for five hours and then walk naked through a freezing Salford for another five hours.

However, her addiction to pickles and ice cream is going to cause problems in the future.”
