    [QUOTE]How are you?  Exhausted and I want a nap but good :D. How goes it?  This week has been waaaaaaaaaaaaay too busy xP Tell us about yourself. Are you engaged?  Yes. How'd your FI ask? He pretended he was up to no good but after frustrating me to the point of wanting to whoop his arse he proposed lmfao. Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? Been lurking on and off the past year or so. How has wedding planning been for you? Really uber stressful! Budgeting our finances has been difficult and a lot of the planning has been wigging me out lol. Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? Yeppers! Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? <strong>Eh I do! Just not the glittery ones xD</strong>. Team Peeta or Team Gale? I dunno! :P Why don't you post more often?  I do post as often as possible but if the thread already has a buncha replies that I agree with I don't feel I need to. Do you think you will now? Perhapsably :P Oh - animals, do you have any? I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  I have a teacup toy poodle named Bella and I will upload pics later xD

      How goes it?  Ahoy hoy. Tell us about yourself. I'm 27 and work in mental health.  I love booze, inappropriate humor, and being a loaf in front of the TV. 
    Are you engaged? Yep How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) At dinner on our anniversary. 

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I started off on the Nest before I got engaged, and now I wander back and forth.

    How has wedding planning been for you? It's far more fun to plan other people's weddings.  Most of the major things are picked out, so I don't really have anything to do until it gets closer.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? I love Pizza.  My favorite is taco pizza.  Two delicious foods in one.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? I have never seen Twilight, and not really into vampires.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? I keep hearing how I need to read the HG series- It's on my list, so I will report back when I made a decision.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? It's hard to follow posts during the day.  I might jump in during the evenings, though.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. 2 cats.  A really tiny tuxedo named Lizzie (grey tux, she's casual) and the fluffiest white cat ever, Sadie. Both below.

    Well, hell. I'ma gonna play too. The rest of my afternoon is empty. This morning was another story.

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself. I'm cold, and I saw someone wearing flip flops today. It isn't even 50, people. There will be no summer, I'm convinced. I'm an academic secretary; a Southerner born and raised, transplanted to the Midwest because of wuv - twu wuv.

    Are you engaged? Nope. We will celebrate our 2nd anniversary in September. Holy cow. How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) In our hotel room after a day at Disney, and after carrying the ring around all day. He almost proposed in the Haunted Mansion, which would have been a great story, but he thought it would be cheesy.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I lurked at first, posting on the Vegas board for some ideas, then just slipped my toe in here and there. Fish said she hadn't ever seen me before (AND I ANSWERED ONE OF HER POLLS!).

    How has wedding planning been for you? Called hotel, arranged days off with work and my dad's travel schedule, sent invites, booked cake, signed contract - boom. Done. Oh - made iPod playlist. We decided on our 2 songs I think the night before we left.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? My H would live on it. I do like it, but I can't eat it every day. I like cheese; pepperoni; veggie (no mushrooms); and Hawaiian with onions.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? Dracula and the ones in Salem's Lot.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? I plead the 5th.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? I'm not sure this applies.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. Heh. I have a mini horse in my house. His name is Max. He's a 70 pound dachshund mix. Yes, you read right. His head is as hard as a rock, his neck's as big as my husband's, and his chest is 2 inches bigger than my waist. He's given me a black eye with his head, and almost broken my nose with it. But, I do love him. Most days.
    Max Baby:



    Max - now (well, the last time I could hold him, so 10 pounds ago?)




    Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  Let us be the judge. I'm pretty fond of him. He's got the best eyes I've ever seen. Light blue, and long lashes. Damn him.  And, just so you know, this search took for.ever. He rarely smiles (in pictures), and usually wears sunglasses. Ugh.

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself. 

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)  Yes, I'm getting married on October 15. FI made our dog, Stella, ask me. He tied a cute little note to her collar and then sent her my way :)

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?  I lurk and post occasionally.

    How has wedding planning been for you?  Pretty good. I'm in a bit of a lull right now. All the big things are planned, and I'm not really in a detail mood lately.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?  Mmm plain cheese or pinapple is my favorite.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?  Does Buffy count?

    Team Peeta or Team Gale?  Uh...

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?  Sure I will... it makes work more interesting :)

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  FI and I have a super cute puppy named Stella... she was mentioned in the proposal story above

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself. Good! I'm 26, I'm the director of a scholarship foundation, and I'm a generally happy person. I like going to the movies and color coding things.

    Are you engaged? How'd your FI ask? I am engaged-- he proposed at the spot where we met. I was totally surprised.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I've been lurking.

    How has wedding planning been for you? Pretty good so far. Our wedding is still pretty far off (18 months from today!), so we haven't hit much in the way of stress yet. 

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? I love pizza. Lots of it. With lots of cheese and 10 million veggies on it.

    I accidentally deleted the vampire question, but:  I do like vampires! I've read and seen Twilight and FI likes True Blood, but to be honest-- I used to LOVE Buffy the Vampire Slayer and will always be partial to the undead of Sunnydale. I even took a class in college called From Beowulf to Buffy, and it was about the history of vampires in literature and pop culture. (This was all pre-Twilight; I'm sure the class would be totally different now.)

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? Hunger Games is next on my Kindle, once I finish my current book

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? I think I've posted maybe once on this board. Usually by the time I get here, any questions have already been answered and I've felt a little creepy just jumping into conversations. But I think I'll post more now, because I feel like I've introduced myself.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. I have two kittens-- we adopted them in January. They shared a crate at the shelter, so we didn't want to split them up. Pictures below. Baxter is black and white and loves practicing his vertical leap, unraveling rolls of toilet paper and playing with his toys. Pippit is all black and loves snuggling under the covers, keeping me company while I make dinner and laying in sunbeams.

      
     
    No pictures of FI on this computer, but I certainly think he's pretty hot :)

    How goes it? Tell us about yourself. Hey, my name is Laura.  I am 25, and I am an HR generalist for a technology company.  I like running and fun, outgoing people (because I'm def. an introvert)

    Are you engaged? How'd your FI ask? (short story please)  Engaged since June. FI proposed in front of a fountain in dt Portland after I unknowingly screwed up his plan to propose at Multnomah Falls (a huge waterfall).

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? lurking for a long time

    How has wedding planning been for you? easy... getting married in MI, live in Seattle so booked things mostly online.  Mom has been the biggest problem :)

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? Love pizza! especially with mushrooms!

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? no, sorry

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? um, I haven't read Hunger Games

    Why don't you post more often? Do you think you will now? I try to, but you ladies are always here!  by the time I get caught up on a thread it's typically dead. or I feel silly jumping in since you all know each other so well.

    Oh - animals, do you have any? I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here.  Riley - 2 1/2 year old female black lab.  She's a cutie.This was on her first birthday.  She is still a teeny tiny lab (50 lbs)




    Hot FI's make friends fast too. Got one? Let us be the judge. HAHA. I think he's a hottie ;)

    <div>If I had a Sunnydale High School t-shirt I would wear it all the time, too! I loved that show. This conversation has kind of made me want to go home and watch Buffy... I feel so outdated now, though! I got so offended when I read Twilight and there weren't any dead vampires bursting into clouds of dust when they were staked by the slayer.</div>

    How are you? good, bored but good

    How goes it? My name is Alyssa, I am actively looking for work and I like shopping and baseball.

    Are you engaged? Yes  How'd your FI ask? We were in Niagara Falls (Canadian side) and he pulled me into the park and asked me there.  (short story please)

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I've been on the Knot since August, but have been lurking here for A long while.

    How has wedding planning been for you? Fun! I've not had really many headaches. I'm a planner by nature so most of the big stuff is done and I still have  about 5 months left.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? I LOVE pizza

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? sorry, not a fan of Vampires.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? Need to read the book then I will weigh in.

    Why don't you post more often? I don't want to sound dumb with my advice, and pretty much everyone says what I'm going to say Do you think you will now? I might, depending on how I feel that day.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. I have one adorable diluted calico cat named Garza. She's my avatar picture, but I'll get a better picture.

    acwm - I also have action figures of Spike, Giles, and Wesley on my bookshelf.  They're pretty much the coolest things ever.  The Spike one is him as Randy Giles from the Tabula Rasa episode where they all get amnesia.  I'm going watch that as soon as I get home!

    Hi! I'm MissOwl.
    I'm a 26 year old Research Analyst at a university. I finished my Master's two years ago and just got into my Ph.D. program. YES! However, that leaves me with little free time. BOO! Mr.Owl and I love to watch movies (Netflix addicts) and cook things in our ancient crockpot for fun.

    Are you engaged? Not engaged yet but Mr.Owl and I bought the ring from an adorable little antique jewelry place two weeks ago so I'll update when he asks officially.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I've been lurking for awhile. Shout out to MissySue who led me to this board because she's always has brilliant answers on our local board. Plus I love etiquette. 

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? Duh! Winning! Yes I love pizza.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? sorry no

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? I wish i knew what this meant. Clearly a newb here.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? I wanted to wait to post until I had a reason to introduce myself (thanks for the intro post). I will def post more now :)

    Oh - animals, do you have any? Mr.Owl and I are getting a kitty when we move to a new apt where we're allowed to have pets. This is a Russian Blue. I want one bad.

    [QUOTE] <strong>Are you engaged?</strong> 
    yeps, 2 months out from the wedding

    <strong>How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)</strong>
    Christmas Eve 2009, a few hours before flying out to see my fam in Costa Rica.

    <strong>Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?</strong>
    I'm a big lurker. I don't ever really have much to say that hasn't already been said by the time I show up to a post.

    <strong>How has wedding planning been for you?</strong>
    Awesome! But I made sure to give myself plenty of time so it would be enjoyable and stress-free!

    <strong>Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?</strong>
    Omg, I LOOOOVE PIZZA. I've turned FI into a pizza addict

    <strong>Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?</strong>
    nooo, sorrryyyy :o(

    <strong>Team Peeta or Team Gale?</strong>

    Don't have much to say really!

    <strong>Do you think you will now?</strong>

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) yes. FI asked as we were going to bed.. we didn't get to sleep for nearly an hour after!

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? i'm a lurker... since feb.

    How has wedding planning been for you? not too shabby. i thought i'd be paying for everything myself but my parents have been surprisingly awesome.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? omg yes. it's only my fav.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? i liked twilight before the movies... they ruined everything good about the series.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? i haven't read hunger games.. but apparently i need to.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? i'm a little shy. plus i thought i would be a weird outsider in all the girls here. but now i might :)

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself.
    Well at the moment I have a cold, so it could be going better. But on the plus side, I have today off work so I can stay at home and recuperate, so that's good. Hmm what to tell you about myself. I'm 23 years old. I grew up just outside Detroit but now live very close to Toledo. I sell high-end home theater equipment but want to do something involving writing or teaching. I feel some sort of connection with Robotlegs despite still being a newb because my coworkers tend to refer to me as Daria, haha.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)
    I am engaged! While carving pumpkins for Halloween my FI carved 'Marry Me?' into his. It was pretty cute. See?



    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?
    I've been lurking for quite some time and have posted quite a bit, but my post count is definitely still low enough to be considered a newb, so I figured I'd post here.

    How has wedding planning been for you?
    I had lots of ideas and was having tons of fun finding inspiration. Now that I have to actually do something with all the inspiration it's become a bit more stressful. I've started having myself and FI do one small thing for the wedding every day, so we're getting things accomplished but not becoming overwhelmed.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?
    As long as it's just cheese and pepperoni. Preferably extra cheese =)

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?
    Nope, sorry. But I do have a Harry Potter obsession. I forget who has the siggy with the crying during the opening credits, but that is basically me.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale?
    What?

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?
    I guess I feel like it would be weird to jump in the middle of everyone's coversations, you all know eachother so well. But if there is an etiquette question or someone's being all crazy after not having their bad ideas validated, then I post.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here.
    FI has a cute little black doxie that is now mine as well. He is 3 years old.



    Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  Let us be the judge.
    After debating about how much he would kill me for posting a pic of him on here, I decided to settle on one that doesn't show his face. But he is very cute!

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself.  It goes reasonably well.  I'm Andrea, I'm 26, I live in SoFL and I actually kind of like it.  I don't like coffee.  I'm proud of myself for getting contact lenses before my wedding and learning to put them in.  I speak a bunch of languages.  I have four wedding outfits (I know, I know, but it's a hybrid Indian-American wedding).  I want a puppy.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)  We agreed to get married, pretty much.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?  I've been around a bit, but I'm too shy to come on the NWR threads for the most part.

    How has wedding planning been for you?
      Relatively uncomplicated, all things considered.  The cake tasting was an unmitigated disappointment, though.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? 
    Unless it has MUSHROOMS.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?
      I'm a zombie kind of girl, myself.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? 
    Um, hello?  Peeta, of course.  Also team Johanna and Finnick.  Both awesome.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?  To be honest, because I can't post from work.  So I feel like I miss out on a lot of the action around here.  I'll try harder, though.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) Yes. FI and I were on a cruise together to Alaska and he proposed while we watched the sunrise.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I've been lurking mostly, but posting sometimes.

    How has wedding planning been for you? It's been fun. It's been keeping me busy. I love looking at wedding pictures and thinking of fun stuff for the wedding, but then it's either too much effort or too much money.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? YES! Extra cheese please. Other toppings are cool too, but I love cheese.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? I never got into any vampire stuff.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? So far Team Peeta but I haven't read books 2 or 3 yet. They're stuck at the post office until I can pick up my package. Hopefully tomorrow! I'm so glad I saw girls here posting about HG before or I never would've started reading them!

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? I post now and then. Sometimes I just don't know what to add in to a post and follow along reading.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. No :( We're in a small 1 bedroom apartment right now. One day I want a dog though!! I love seeing pics of everyone else's pets though.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)  Yes, getting married in Sept 2011. FI cooked me a 4 course meal, complete with candles and real champagne then got down on one knee and asked. 

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?  I lurk often and post occasionally. 

    How has wedding planning been for you?  Good, most of the big stuff is taken care of. It's been pretty stress free so far. 

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?  LOVE pizza. About to have some for dinner. 

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?  Only Brad Pitt in Interview with a Vampire. 

    Team Peeta or Team Gale?  Since I don't know what this means, am I banned from the E board??

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?  I think I might. I don't get very butthurt. 

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  Not yet. As soon as FI goes underway next year, I'm getting a kitten. He's not real thrilled but whatev. 

    Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  Let us be the judge
      I think he is....though he's generally very angry looking unless we're drinking.

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself.
    -Well...I'm about 39 weeks preggo and completely miserable, so I might come off as testy sometimes, but I promise I'm not that bad. haha Other than that, I'm 26, from San Antonio TX, and FI and I have 2 other little wacky little children. I've been scouring the Knot for wedding crap for years, but I'm a community noOb! 

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)
    -There never was an official proposal, we just knew we would get married after dating for about a month. We had planned on getting married a LOT sooner, but thanks to a car accident, losing a job, and a surprise pregnancy we've postponed it for a ridiculously long time.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?
    -Typically I lurk on whatever board fits my daily curiosity, but this one has a lot more useful info than most others! I've been lurking a little, posting here and there.

    How has wedding planning been for you?
    -I like it so far, but I don't have anyone to talk wedding stuff to (no family and my FMIL isn't exactly my go-to lol) Even though it's far off, we're booking our fave vendors now so we know that we have who we want. Venues, cake, linens, and DJ are checked off the list... yay me! :)

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?
    -I absolutely could not live without it. It is a dream of mine to try authentic Chicago style pizza one day...not the recreations we get down here.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?
    -Call me old school...I <3 Bela Lugosi and I still love Louis and Lestat. The Twilight books were surprisingly good, but I don't know how I feel about sparkling vampires...

    Team Peeta or Team Gale?
    -Haven't read it yet. I'm just starting the first Sookie Stackhouse book...with small children, I'm lucky to get a shower everyday let alone read the massive amount of books that I want to.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?
    -I'm still learning about all the formal wedding etiquette as no one really follows it down here (haha) and I'll probably just keep posting only on the things that I either have an opinion on or could give correct info.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here.
    -I have a rat terrier mix named Penny who thinks she's people. I had her before I had FI and she is my vicious little ankle biting protector. We also have a really annoying yet lovable cat named Bones (random Star Trek reference??) I will try to dig up some pics of both of them.

    Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  Let us be the judge.
    -Well, I like him enough. :) He's in my pic up there ^< and once we get formal e pics (after I pop and am no longer a walking land-manatee) I will add them to my profile.

    Hope everyone is having a good day...

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself. Hi.  About me? I'm 27, an attorney-turned-mediator (yeah, like the tv show, only a lot less exciting), with a deep love of bad tv.

    Are you engaged? Yepper

    How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) Took me to San Diego for the weekend, wore me out running me around Balboa Park and the zoo, then took me on a 5 mile hike up and down the cliffs on th beach.  When we stopped for a photo op break, he proposed.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I post every now and then, but mostly just lurking.

    How has wedding planning been for you? I hate it.  Haha.  I never wanted a wedding- my plan was to call up the judge I clerked for, road trip to the middle-of-nowhere courthouse on a Friday afternoon, get hitched, and go out ot dinner with our parents.  FI's family, however, NEEDS a wedding.  A traditional, Catholic, big party, open bar, exorbitantly expensive wedding.  So I'm planning it, and I'm really only enjoying dress shopping.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? Who doesn't?? Favorite is sicillian with extra cheese, please (bread and cheese....mmmmm....)

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? I'm indifferent.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? I have no idea what this refers to. Sorry if I'm lame for that.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now? I feel weird hopping in. Maybe I'll feel less weird now.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. A cat, a rotating cast of fish, and an umbrella cockatoo. 



    Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  Let us be the judge. Yes, but he's not crazy about random pics of him on the interwebs.  So no pics.  Sorry.

    Yep, Yep. I remember being asked about Tom Hanks. I said I don't like Tom Hanks OR Morgan Freeman and it went over as well as a lead balloon.

    Howdy! It's goin alright... although it's been raining nonstop here in Cincinnati for the past like week and a half so I'm ready for some sunshine! 
    I'm Allyson, 25... doing artwork for a large consumer goods company. I just finished an intense P90X workout and I'm starving... would love to have some General Tso's chicken from the chinese takeout down the street but can't because I'm *attempting to* count calories.. ahhh!!

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)
    Yes... I am! We were on a ski trip in Tahoe.... took a "day off" and went to the National Auto Museum in Reno (we like cars, esp Corvettes). He proposed in front of John Waynes '53 Corvette (there's a story behind that...). Of course it took me a couple minutes for me to realize he was down on one knee because I was more focused flippin through the pics on the digital camera to notice.. oops... 

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?
    Yes - I've been lurking for a little while... you ladies crack me up. Some people takes these boards waay to seriously... 

    How has wedding planning been for you?
    Great, actually... aside from the fact that FI's mom keeps insisting that we do a choreographed dance to Cotton Eyed Joe at the reception (... at a swanky, modern glass museum...). Me thinks no.... 

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?\
    LOVE pizza! There is a place in my hometown that's got the best pizza (at least IMO) .. it's called Inky's (anyone out there from Toledo??)

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?
    I'm slightly afraid how to answer this. I'm not really into them, sorry.... 

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? 
    Sorry - just had to google this to find out who these chicks are.. no clue.. 

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?
    Not sure although I'll try to join in the fun a little more often now!
    Usually if I have an E-related question I'm smart enough to scroll through a page or two of the board and find that somebody has already posted the question ... so I don't have to ask ... again.. (or even worse.... double-post it...)

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here.
    I've got a pet cockatiel (bird) named Rudy. We named him after the mascot of the University of Dayton, where FI & I met. He sings the fight song, and says a couple cute things. I just tried posting a pic but am having issues with the computer.. I'll try again later (he's so stinkin' cute and I would love to make some friends here!)
    We also "adopt" our neighbors dog occasionally, and take him on walks. 

    Hot FI's make friends fast too.  Got one?  Let us be the judge
    Of course he's hot! but... can't post a pic... I'll try again later - so be on the lookout for a reply of a bird & me & my FI...

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself. Well, I'm a teacher and it's standardized test week, so it goes kind of stressfully.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) Yes.  He was working in Saudi Arabia and his company flew me to Dubai for Eid and he asked me there.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? I stick pretty much to my local board, but I've lurked around here since about last September.

    How has wedding planning been for you? I didn't know what I was doing, so I hired a coordinator first thing (plus FI wasn't going to be back in the country for a month, so he asked me not to tell anyone -- so I got to tell the coordinator), so basically we're done planning with six months to go and really ready to be married now.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza? Does someone not like pizza?

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones? Allergic.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? I hope no one explained this reference in the last seven pages, but I totally don't get it.

    Why don't you post more often?  Usually someone else says what I would.
    Do you think you will now? If I ever make it to a thread in time to make a witty retort.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. 
    This is the most recent pic I have loaded.  The two on the left are mine:
    Anniversary

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself.
    Laura, 29. Audio Engineer (read: button pusher and knob turner), I dig music, painting and wine.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please)
    Yep, he asked in New Orleans, on the Mississippi

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up?
    I lurked minimally, post on and off

    How has wedding planning been for you?
    Mostly enjoyable. Although, our Coordinator's assistant is turning out to be a spazz and stressing me about the catering...

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?
    LOVE. And pizza in the south does not equal real pizza, unfortunately.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?
    Not crazy about em, watched the first two season of True Blood til I lost HBO.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale?
    Neither, aparently

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?
    I do when I have time, lately have not had much of that.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here.
    No pets here. We decided to go straight to the babymaking. Liam, 11 months, well this was Christmas, so 8 months here

    How goes it?  Tell us about yourself. My name is Natalie.  I'm a graduate student.  I'm supposed to be working on two finals papers, but I thought this sounded more fun.

    Are you engaged?  How'd your FI ask?  (short story please) Yes.  He proposed at the Phoenix Zoo Holiday Lights the day after Thanksgiving.

    Have you been lurking for a while, or did you just show up? Lurking

    How has wedding planning been for you?
    Not too bad.  I worked in banquets for seven years and my grandma's in the wedding cake business.  I know my way around a wedding.

    Mandy wants to know if you like pizza?
    Adore it.  Which is why I'm disappointed in Seattle.  Terrible pizza.  I'm a pizza snob.

    Alix wants to know if you like vampires, and which ones?
    Love 'em.  I love True Blood and Anne Rice and Dracula.  Not a Twilight fan though.  I like my vamps mean and sexy...Like Eric.

    Team Peeta or Team Gale? I don't know.

    Why don't you post more often?  Do you think you will now?
    Kind of both.  I get chatty, but I'm a little shy.  Even on the internet.

    Oh - animals, do you have any?  I'm sure a cute picture of an animal would make you some friends here. Oh, yes.  Two cats:  Mandy and Domino.  One Dog:  Eddie.  Two goldfish:  Shakira and Little Fish.  Four Geckos.  And whatever my fiance is keeping in his fish tank these days.
