Congratulations Mitchell on your engagement!
And speaking of my brother.

So, I'm sitting in my EMT class and my dear brother (The Hankerchief) calls, all the way from Qatar. I quickly silence my phone and let him know I will call him back as soon as I finish class. And this is Twin Nerd moment of pride, He responds not with any of the typical affirmatives (Ok, Roger That, See you then, etc) but instead replies, "Potassium". I couldn't help it, I started laughing, in the middle of a trauma response exercise. Questioning looks abound (the material was fairly graphic) the instructor decided to pause and let us take a break. I grinned like a fool all the way through the rest of the class.

So, in short, My Brother everyone.

2) Every time I come back here after a long stretch of inactivity I'm all "dang, I LOVE this forum!" and I don't really feel like that about any other place on the internet. :P
