I just woke up from a post-karaoke and alcohol slumber, and I wanted to thank my long-suffering girlfriend Kirov for being awesome.

She's supported me through job changes, the stress of playing in a band, spells of depression, dealing with the trauma of friends in abusive relationships and so many other events I can't keep track.

I don't think think that the last year would have been nearly as tolerable without her. She's supportive and nurturing. She's been my biggest cheerleader.

As much as I find Jez insufferable, in so many ways, I'll always have a soft spot for it because it brought us together. We have so many plans for our future and nothing is unobtainable for us.

I'm the luckiest idiot there ever was. I love you, babe.
