Ooops, Missed It

I seem to remember mistakenly anticipating it over a year ago in a comment, when a blogosphere-married couple were proclaiming their anniversary. Thought about it on a regular basis since the beginning of the year. Somehow got the notion that it would be in May and missed making the blog announcement. As of the 21st of last month, my wee wifey and I have been married a long playing record. You've heard of them, right? Twelve inch disk, double sided, hold less data than a CD. Carries an actual physical analog representation of the sound vibrations. No encoding; no data recovery from even the slightest damage. Instead of the hundreds or even thousands of revolutions per minute at which a CD can spin, they ran at a single set speed of thirty three and one third revolutions per minute. This speed is part of the format definition, and so thirty three and one third, the number of years we've been married as of our previous monthaversary, is a long long playing record.
