Ignoble Proposal

Engagement ring ends up gone with the wind

LONDON (Reuters) - It is the one moment every man wants to get right -- and which London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji could hardly have got more wrong.

The luckless 28 year-old's dreams of giving his sweetheart, Leanne, 26, the ultimate proposal have literally vanished into thin air.

Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a 6,000-pound engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring -- and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend -- sailing away over the rooftops.

"I couldn't believe it," he told The Sun newspaper.

"I just watched as it went further and further into the air.

"I felt like such a plonker. It cost a fortune and I knew my girlfriend would kill me."
(more...)

Awesome plan to get full credit for dishing for a ~$10K ring without actually dishing for ~$10K.

Karma +10K.

That's right.  It's the euro at 1.6 and the pound at roughly 2.0.  Right?

Mum's going to England in May.  She has a place to stay and rides and so forth but it's gonna be brutal.
