It's all good

1997 I get a computer.

Matt helps me set it up.

Matt suggests I start playing with web pages

I give birth to happyrobot.

Matt gets me my first dot-com job.

I meet Adina via happyrobot.

She starts writing Pony.

Matt meets Adina and her sister Jackie when Adina comes to visit NYC.

Matt and Jackie start dating and later move in together.

Matt proposes to Jackie (she says 'yes'!)

Open letter to Matt

Dear Matt,
Thank you for all your interweb help over the years. You have been generous with your knowledge and skill, and I hope that happyrobot's place in your meeting of your future wife can serve as some sort of gratitude for all your help.

Wish you the best!

If there are ever babies involved, I want dibs on the name. Ideas:

Happy Robot Johnson
Danny Chambers Johnson
Matt Johnson Johnson
Jack E. Johnson
Pony Johnson
Matthew Jack Goldson
