This is a Tri-Blog post that will appear on all three of my blogs Beyond Dinobot Island, The Geeky Guide to Nearly Everything and Moonbase 8.

One, two, anniversary, anniversary again, Fünf, Roku, Se7en. Man, I'm going to run out of creative ways to count.

Seven is a significant number in many cultures for some reasons. It's considered lucky by many people and it seems to be a good number for samurais, cowboys and effective habits - at least before they needed a new book and an 8th one. They also say there's an itch associated with seven years and I suppose it wouldn't hurt to scratch, right?

Seven years. Man. Where do I begin.

More than my birthday or any holiday, this day has become amazingly important to me. It's one of those days that I can't forgive myself if I forget it. I mean seriously - when you reach this point, you just can't let this day slide easily. Thus this day truly becomes the way we measure time and how we evaluate the time before. Sure, there's always New Year's Eve for the usual reflection and such, but then for some reason this day has become a far greater measure of our successes and failures in the time before.

In thinking of what to say in this entry, which in recent years has become a major undertaking in terms of my writing, I tried going back to the previous years to see what I had said before. In my transition from almost forgetting about this special day to linking my OCD tendencies and my science fiction interests to my love for Brian |[info]kitchengod|, I think I've gone through a lot of complicated ways to say "I love you."

Perhaps I should try a different tack.

I love you because you make me smile no matter how grumpy I get or how bad my day is.

I love you because you make some of the most amazing food I've ever had in my life within the confines of our home.

I love just snuggling on the couch with you.

I love how you let me get lost in my computer activities even though I know it annoys you when I don't respond.

I love you for watching movies with me and liking a lot of the things that I like.

I love you for sharing my love of musicals and show tunes.

I love you for tolerating Smoke no matter what kind of messes he makes.

I love you since I can hug you while you sleep and you won't push me away (unlike what I do sometimes =P).

I love you for taking me to new places to see and experience new things I would never have dared on my own.

I love you for our quiet times when we just lie in bed reading and simply being together.

I love you for playing Diablo II with me.

I love you for tolerating my splurge moments when I absolutely need to get a particular book.

I love you for telling me to be careful when I forget myself.

I love you for waking me up no matter how sleepy I am.

I love you in so many ways that it boggles even my OCD mind to list them all.

I love you for making me more than the person I used to be. I know I will never be the same person again and I don't regret that one bit. If I had a chance to do things over again, I'd like to have met your earlier (if that was even possible) but then life is what it is and we just roll with that.

I love you, Brian, for loving me.
