*microphone feedback squeal*….*tap-tap-tap*…. Testing… Testing. One. Two. Three… Testing….*tap-tap-tap*… Is this thing on?.....*LOUD feedback squeal*…. Ow, shit!... *quickly turning down volume*… Phuh-phuh-phuh… Testing… *tap-tap-tap*… Okay, that’s good now…
Attention! Attention in the forum!... Hello, everyone! May I have your attention, please? Thank you. Yes, just gather around. Come on in, everybody. Plenty of room. Nyar and Cyber, good to see you two. Hey there, Algebe. Arakish, we have a seat for you over here. Uh, will somebody please get Q away from the food table? … Thanks. Hey, has anybody seen Jared lately? Is he here yet? Old Man, just park your tricycle in the corner there…. Great. Hey there, Sushi!...*waving excitedly*… Dio… Cog… Would you two mind hanging by the door? Don’t want any “unauthorized personnel* busting in. Alembe and Watchman. Glad you could make it. Good to see you, too, Chimp. Is that Greensnake and Grinseed with you?... Cool. Let’s seeee… Is that everybody?…. Oh, naturally. TheLargerBowl, David, and ZeffD come straggling in at the last minute. Hey, guys! Glad you made it. Okay, sooo… I’m gonna go ahead and get started. Just have a bit of good news I have been asked to share with our little AR family. And please feel free to pass the word along to those who may not be here yet. So, without further ado….
Ladies and gentlemen, as many of you may have noticed, there have been a couple of our esteemed members who have been considerably absent during the last couple of months, making only a brief post rather randomly here and there. Now, I know there are a couple of you out there who can probably guess at what I am about to announce, as you are already familiar with the two individuals and their situation….*smiling and nodding at Nyar and Old Man*… And I don’t know about you two, but I have known about this for several weeks, and I confess it has been difficult for me to keep the secret. Fortunately, today is the day I can finally share the wonderful news with all of our friends here on the site. It’s a good thing, too, because I was about to start busting rivets trying to keep from blabbing about it to everybody.
Okay, so, the first person of interest is that calm, cool, and collected American-grown intellectual whiz-kid we all know as Aposteriori Unum. That’s right folks, that Sam Harris wanna-be look-alike who slashes through theist fallacies like Obi Wan’s light saber through warm butter. With his unflappable reasoning and matter-of-fact attitude, our mighty Apost is a beacon of logic and rationality to all who read his words. That being said, he’s also a pretty good dude who has a hidden “mushy” side he desperately tries to keep concealed. Well, sorry, my man, but today you get revealed. *mischievous grin* That brings us to our next person of interest in this announcement. (Hmmm…. I think I see light bulbs starting to light up over a few heads out there. *chuckle*)…
Ahhh… Enter now our lovely and cerebrally gifted Senorita Flamenca. She came to us from one of our great European nations and freely shared her personal ideas and unique perspectives with us all. Her human kindness and rapier wit have surly been missed out on the debate field the last few months. I can assure you, however, the reason for her absence is most certainly justified, as you are about to discover.
And, now, the moment you have all been waiting for, it is with a very happy heart and great satisfaction that I have been given the honor and privilege to announce the wonderful news that Mr. Aposteriori Unum and Senorita Flamenca are officially engaged to be married!... *cupping hand to ear to hear a question yelled over the applause*… Yes, Q, to each other! Okay, so as badly as I may want to indulge in providing details, I will refrain from doing so to allow the happy couple to answer your questions themselves. And on that note, I will now step down so that everybody can begin bombarding them with all sorts of intrusive and intimate inquiries. *snicker* Apost and Flame, the microphone is all yours!
