Oh, that's so sweeeeeet... Until Butch the Psycho Killer shows up and slaughter you, then the movie will be complete!!

Now, seriously, congrats. Can't really fathom how you people think it's a good thing, but might as well go with the flow. To each his own, said the ancient chinese proverb (damn, that loses all humour in the translation).

Probably away. Contact through email.

thin white gold band with a sapphire between two diamonds

I'd've gone with a titanium band. Everyone has Gold and as symbolic as the circular nature of the ring is, nothing says "I wanna spend the rest of my life with you" like a chunk of metal that can withstand a point-blank blast from a .44 Magnum. Also, titanium has a somewhat unique and long-lasting shine whilst giving a good contrast the blues of the sapphire.

And I'm afraid I've also got to criticize your response to the gloves. The ideal answer woulda been something like "Pfff. Gloves? Try this instead" only less....err....an0n-ish.

Other than that though, as far as proposals go that's pretty damn good, if not somewhat cliched.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences.

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance.

This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Jeez, Sesqy, it's hard to believe that Beth now has to spend the rest of her life watching you take a dump on the toliet while she brushes her teeth every morning. ;)

Damn, now I'm feeling a big ol' case of "singles syndrome" coming on...

Seriously, dude, congratulations!  :) :) :) :nod:

Jon: We've already had our conversation, so I'm going to say :(;)

As for SA, Sesq and I are both having some very serious issues in Real Life right now, and I think it's safe to say FS modding is going to take a back seat for once. We'll let you know what happens.
