The Devil's whereabouts...

Your humble Devil apologises for the lack of communication; I did try to post via email but it doesn't seemed to have worked properly. I am in Cyprus—where data charges are horrendous—and so not keeping up with the news.

For those who are interested, young Bella Gerens and I got married this morning, with a very simple ceremony in Larnaka (where we are staying).

Having desported ourselves in the sea and burning sun this afternoon, your humble Devil is sat on the balcony, drinking beer and reading The Fountainhead, whilst Bella naps within.

We shall be back on Thursday next week. Until then...

Diabolus uxorem duxit? O tempora! O mores! Semper eum credidi amatorem puerorum.

All the best DK and Mrs DK. Make merry on the Brandy sours. Could I recommend "The Grapes" in Pissouri village?

Shaun said...

Grats mate.

Take it from me - nothing annoys proseletizing deists more than a pair of rational atheists getting married without their 'god'!

All the best and good luck. Plus have an exquisitely drunken honeymoon!

Frabjous News.

Many happy years together to the both of you. A glass of Islay will be raised to your health and happiness this evening. I hope that this will be the beginning of the end of Bella's travails.

May you both live happily ever after.

Well done buddy!

Adam said...

Fantastic News! I am soooo happy for you.


My G/F is an American on a T1 (HSMP) Visa and I know the paper work is a nightmare!
She moved here because I have a son from a first marriage and being the great woman she is she didnt want my 9yr old to choose between here or Arizona!
Mad! But I love her more for it!

I said she should have just taped herself underneath a Bus full of Immigration Officers and be done with it, but oh no, she wanted to do it properly and give Gordo his tax.

We are planning to get married next year. I will reference your blog in detail then!

Americans aren't all bad your DK's blog is a great piece of work!

Right time for a nice dose of STFU... Congrats to you both! Enjoy!!!

sconzey said...

Congratulations sir. I myself have just got back from Cyprus (Polis area), fantastic country, delicious beer (Keo, none of your Leon rubbish ;) ).

Have yourself a ruddy good time.

assegai mike said...

Well done, fella. I read Bella's blog when you first introduced us to her travails and decided instantly that she was top drawer (and was a wee bit jealous). Look forward to catching up with you as a couple sometime. Uncle Sam's loss is our gain thanks to you, no thanks whatsoever to HMG.

Hearty congratulations,
Mike

Congratulations to you both!

jorbagw@homtail.co.uk said...

congratulations!!!!!

Having read both blogs, Bella is getting the shitty end of the stick ;o)

One minor problem. Having publicised her travails on both blogs you can expect the home office to crawl up both your arses with a microscope. Especially since
a) you don't support Labour
b) you don't support government (esp. you don't support the civil service)
c)The timing is all too convenient (sorry)

Have some experience dealing with the home office, and plenty dealing with spin and bullshit. If I can help, let me know.

P.s. Larnaka is to Cyprus what Blakpool is to the UK (with gangmaster included). Get to Paphos, or even Nicosia. Relatively unspoilt. at least it was 2 yrs ago. Lovely

Well! Congratulations.

All the very best to you both. And take no notice of Bishop Hill, being married does not mean you have to be respectable.

Congratulations. All the best people get married in Cyprus. I got married in Paphos a couple of years ago. They don't mess around with the ceremonies there do they! About 3 minutes and job done!

My heartiest congratulations and best wishes to the pair of you! I'll raise a tin of stella to you tonight x x

Tomrat said...

Brilliant new DK crack on!

@Shaun,

As for us Deists all I can say is thus; God doesn't exist in the ceremony (or lack thereof), he exists in the love that these 2 people have for one another - you cannot remove him from "presiding" over this.

God bless you both.
