oneness 05-28-2003 04:33 AM

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

triumvir 05-28-2003 04:48 AM

I guess I should show up

I like this idea

oneness 05-28-2003 04:53 AM

YEA! the groom-to-be has arrived.. hmmmm now where is the bride-to-be.. oh of course she has to be fashionable late

well tri i guess we can munch on some vegan goodies while we wait for others. how about we start with some yummy hummus and pita

triumvir 05-28-2003 04:55 AM

If we bring out the food, others will be sure to arrive

oneness 05-28-2003 04:58 AM


i am sure the smell of all those wonderful vegan treats over there will get this party started.. shewolf is bound to arrive soon

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:00 AM

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

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:10 AM

This party needs soem excitment. I seem to be the only one here

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:14 AM

*triumvir looks around and notices nobody is coming*

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

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:16 AM

*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 05-28-2003 05:18 AM

*triumvir mixes the rest of the ingredients together and kneads the dough*

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:19 AM

*knead knead knead*

more people at this party we need

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:20 AM

*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*

triumvir 05-28-2003 05:25 AM

* a smoke detector goes off waking triumvir up*

that always happens when I preheat the oven to 500 degrees

now back to my peaceful nap

shewolf 05-28-2003 06:21 AM

Where's the felafel? I already ate everything else that was ready!

Hey, so everyone's sleeping now? Well, I can curl up in the corner till everyone else arrives...

triumvir 05-28-2003 06:26 AM

I'm awake from my nap now. I can make falafel

Oatmeal 05-28-2003 06:37 AM

*oatmeal arrives hauling a large wheelbarrow full of fresh fruit in front of him*

Hi everyone! Look at all the fruit I brought. (And what will YOU guys eat? )

triumvir 05-28-2003 06:42 AM

We're having falafel

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

Oatmeal 05-28-2003 06:59 AM

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!

triumvir 05-28-2003 07:21 AM

that sounds like a good trade

shewolf 05-28-2003 07:46 AM

Teehee, I had to run away so I didn't steal anymore food... anyways, I'll be back later on.

triumvir 05-28-2003 08:19 AM

I think I need to go to sleep.

The party can continue tomorrow

portabella 05-28-2003 08:53 AM

Hey party animals!!!

I'm here!

Wake up please!

I brought along some yummy vegan strawberry, almond layer cake (thanks to vegan mania)....but if you are all sleeping I'll just cut myself a piece and enjoy!

muppetcow 05-28-2003 10:31 AM

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!!

punkmommy 05-28-2003 01:46 PM


I brought a big ol' tray of my stuffed shells and garlic bread. And for the couple a "Love" basket from Pangea!

portabella 05-28-2003 01:51 PM

ohh this is the best party....

I think people are waking up...we should play some games with the couple!!!

muppetcow 05-28-2003 02:13 PM

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?

Oatmeal 05-28-2003 03:18 PM

Eat some fruit folks!

natalie 05-28-2003 03:47 PM

/me arrives with some home grown flowers for the happy couple.

Mmm that fruit looks good. I shall grab me a kiwi fruit and put some music on the stereo.

Finlay 05-28-2003 03:58 PM

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."

natalie 05-28-2003 04:15 PM

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...
