so as most of us know we have a newly engaged couple on VB and well that means it is party time.



since we can not have a real engagement party, i thought we could have an engagement party thread. a place where we can talk about all the things related to couples, marriage and family. people can give tid-bits of advice, a toast or simply have fun here.



so i will start out by telling my version of how this all happened..



once upon a time there was a vast vegan community called vegweb. while hanging out one evening i noticed a conversation going on that seemed a little like a conspriacy. i thought this could be a fun game to play, so i sent Tri a vegmail to ask if he would be interested in doing this with me. tri liked the idea as well, so we began working out the game through vegmail and have talked nearly daily since.



during a conversation a while later i mentioned he needed a nice vegan girlfriend and then wondered if he would date non vegan girls and he said he had never thought about it, so of course i asked how would you feel about kissing a girl with steak breath.. (LOL) i will not share his response to that question. so through out the evening i teased him about the different females on the board and we wondered if there was one there for him. i was convinced she was there. we just needed to find her. the next evening i vegmailed to say hello and had asked what he had been up too and he said i have been talking (vegmail) to a really sweet vegan girl. i vegmailed back and asked "when is the wedding".



and months later they are engaged.





well that is the doorbell so i need to see who else has arrived

I was thinking the same thing. She is probably here already. Shewolf is invisible you know. We'll notice her when the food disapears.

Maybe if I start baking more pita bread, people will come.

*triumvir gets out the whole wheat flour, yeast, turbinado sugar, flax and sea salt. He preheats the oven to 500 degrees and puts the yeast and sugar in the water to rise*

*triumvir covers the dough with oil and then a tea towel and leaves it on the stove to rise. Since nobody else is here, he takes a nap*

We're having falafel



Be careful of shewolf, she is invisible and might steal your fruit

Hmm. I could have sworn there was a large mango sitting on the top of the pile, before I turned away for a second...



Maybe I trade some fruit for a few falafel balls!

Is 9:30 am too early to party? I don't think so!!



I think I'll make a pot of organic, shade-grown, fair-trade coffee from Costa Rica...mmmm...and then I'll whip up a batch of peanut butter and pickle sandwiches...THAT should get the party roaring!!

Oooh--a Pangea Love Basket! Punkmommy, if I throw an imaginary party, will you bring me pretend gifts, too?



**munches on some garlic bread**



I think games are definitely in order, Portabella! How about Parchesi?

As Finlay walks into the party-room, he stumbles over the doorstep. Neatly avoiding falling and damaging his important yet fragile package he looks for the groom.



"Congratulations on your engagement! Here is a fine bottle of vegan wine from the finest vineyards in Spain."



"Wine only gets better with time, may the same be true for your marriage."

i think ive arrived at the party a bit too early (or too late?).



As there is no one on the dancefloor, i guess i can play what i like (as i'll probably be the only one dancing).



/me looks thru the record collection.



Maybe i will go introduce myself to the guy thats just come in...
