so as most of us know we have a newly engaged couple on VB and well that means it is party time.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
so i will start out by telling my version of how this all happened..<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
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".<br><br><br><br>
and months later they are engaged.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
well that is the doorbell so i need to see who else has arrived<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I was thinking the same thing. She is probably here already. Shewolf is invisible you know. We'll notice her when the food disapears. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

*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*

Be careful of shewolf, she is invisible and might steal your fruit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Hmm. I could have sworn there was a large mango sitting on the top of the pile, before I turned away for a second...<br><br><br><br>
Maybe I trade some fruit for a few falafel balls!
