    Thanks Fr8. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    And thanks to everyone else for the props /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep, it's true, major drama. If anyone cares, here is an email I wrote to some of my friends about the "drama". Figure I let yall in on what happened too, I guess /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif(Long)

    (little background:
    Fran (g/f).
    Tina' (my bro's g/f).
    John, (my bro).
    Also, I'm currently too damn broke to go out, and Fran knows that. She knows we can't go do anything "costly" for a long time. Financial situation is not good for me right now. So, on Thursday evening, Tina' and I are trying to come up with a way for me to suprise Fran, without her having any clue. We were thinking of really cheap stuff, but all sounded too corny...but then....) (here's the email)

    ...On Thursday night, Fran called and said she got a gift
    certifcate to this place called the Melting Pot (MP)
    in Towson. I'm like, "Cool, let's go on Friday night"
    and I told her to call and set up a reservation.
    I had Tina' call them that Thursday night to check out if this is a place that I can propose at etc. They said yes, it's a high class joint. So put in a reservation for 7:15.

    I called them (MP)later and told them that I was going
    to propose etc. Told them the plan. I also told them
    that a girl named Fran was going to call to set up a
    reservation. Told her to tell her the only available
    time was 7:15 and not to mention that I already set
    [censored] up...etc, etc. I couldn't tell Fran that I set
    it up already, b/c she would've got suspicious. Yall
    know how lazy I am (hey, it's OldMan!). I never set up anything before.

    Anyhow, my original plan was to give the ring to the
    waitress and have her bring it out during desert, and
    tell us it's a "complimentary desert". Then when Fran
    sees the ring on the plate, I get up and kneel
    and do the deed. (Oh, forgot to mention I had a
    choclate teddy bear that I put the ring in. Smooth G )
    Addition to the plan, I was having Tina' and John come
    up with a camcorder and camera to take pics of this
    and film it. They were not to be seen till after the
    ring was given. So, I told the hostess at MP that
    they were going to roll up and chill at the bar until
    it's time to do this. When it was time, the waitress
    is suppose to give them the "Q", and they would hang
    in the background and film it and take pics.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Ok, we roll up to MP on Friday night. We get there
    and they had a serious problem. Supposedly, one of their circuit breakers blew up and started a fire! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif and had a power outage in 90% of the restaurant. Only 5 tables worked (each table has a stove on it and you cook your own
    food etc...) The hostess told us to sit tight and
    they will try to fix us up on one of the few working
    tables. I told them I'll grab a couple beers at the
    bar while we wait. Told Fran to sit tight while I go
    to the bar.

    I'm at the bar and hostess meets me there. She said
    she'll put us on one of the working tables, she knows
    it's my night. I gave her the ring and reminded her
    the deal. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
    I grab a couple brewskies and sit down....

    45 minutes go by and few beers later we finally get
    seated. I go to the bathroom to call John and tell
    them the delay. It was perfect b/c John forgot his ID
    and him and Tina' had to turn around and get it...If
    the power outage didn't happen, they wouldn't have
    made it.

    So, I get back to the table and Fran had to go to the
    restroom. While she is in there, the manager comes
    up to me and says, "listen, we have to clear everyone
    out of this restaurant. Fire Dept and electricians
    are coming, b/c this place might blow!!!" /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif , we know it's your night, we want to make this work for you, but you might have to hang tight outside and wait (it's raining outside too), and he said he's not sure how long of a wait it'll be..." Then he said he'll keep me posted.

    Then Fran gets back. We sit for another 10 minutes
    and then we see a waitress tell everyone to leave, but
    didn't tell us to. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif Then Fran get's irate /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif and gets up and gives the manager an ear full. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif Meanwhile I'm in the background and looking at him, giving him that "I don't know what to do either" look /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif.

    He tells her to hang tight and pulls me aside. Then
    he tells me he is going to set me up with another
    Restaurant down the street called Pablos (PB). He
    said he will pay for the meal too, since it's our
    night!! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif So, I'm like cool. Then he gives the ring
    back.
    I tell Fran, and she was like, "why did he pull you
    aside and tell you alone and not with me?"....I was
    like, "I don't know, maybe b/c I look calm and cool and you look ticked off"...good one right /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif Plus I jazzed it up and told her, " But I gave him an earful and told him we live an hour away (which we do btw) and tracked all the way up here to taste the goods, etc...and that's why he's paying for our meal." She was shocked that I was actually a "hero" like that, but bought it. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    So, we're at PB now. We sit, I use the bathroom excuse and
    talked to the host and hostess there to explain the whole situation to the. This place is nice, pretty highclass,
    but not as highclass as MP. It was really packed
    and very "out in the open" /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif. The host and hostess is
    cool with my situation.

    I call John and tell him the new plan and new
    directions.

    It's about 9:30 now and we're finally eating. We
    order mad wine and definately good food...hey, it's on
    the house right (actually, on MP). /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    So, John and Tina' rolls in without getting seen.
    They're chilling at the bar. Shitty part is, to get
    to the restroom, you have to walk past the bar, which
    Fran did twice that night by the way!

    So, we're done dinner. The waiter asked "So, would
    you like to see our desert tray?". I'm suppose to
    say, "Yes, please". But Fran totally cuts me off, and
    says, "No, we're stuffed" and asked for the check. He
    says, "Don't worry about the check, it's taken care
    of". So, Fran hands him a $20 and says "Let's go".
    The waiter gives me the "what's going on here" look. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    I'm like, "Wait up, let me finish this glass of wine
    here" (I had like, barely a sip left). /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Then Fran says, Ok, I'll go to the bathroom while you finish your full glass of wine /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif. She
    walks by John and Tina again and amazingly didn't see
    them.

    So, the waiter comes back and says, "what's going
    on".
    I told him "Sorry man, she cut me off and I couldn't
    say my line". Then the host comes up and asked if he
    should put the plate on the table with a napkin over
    it?" I told him yeah.

    The plate was nicely decorated with the choclate bear
    in the middle, with flowers around and the mouth on
    the bear was cut out with the ring placed in it). /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This host, and hostes, were really cool. They really
    helped me out. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Ok, Fran comes back and I said, "Hey look, they left
    us a complimentary desert". /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    She said, "wow, that's nice of them" and lifts up the
    mapkin and sees the ring and then drops it and looks
    at me in disbelief. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Then I get up and get on one
    knee. (yall know how Fran get's embarrased easily).

    Tina' ran to the side with the camcorder and John is
    on the other side with the camera (Fran still doesn't
    see them) taking pics.

    Before I even said my line, Fran is like "Yes, Yes"
    Trying to get me up, b/c she was already too embarrased.

    Then I grab her hand and take the ring and said:

    "....(delete)..."

    And placed the ring on her finger. (she told me later
    that I was shaking really bad when I did that, I didnt
    notice at the time).

    She said Yes and Everyone in the restaurant clapped and cheered us on. I stood up and waved my hand in the air a few times and sat down.
    Finally Fran sees Tina' and John and was very suprised
    to see them.
    This one chic came up to our table and was all teary
    eyed/crying and said: "Thanks for doing that, you really
    made my night, congratulations" while she was wiping
    her eyes.

    So, we head to the bar, and I try to slip the hostess
    a $20, but she wouldn't accept. She said it was
    really cool I did that and really wanted to help in
    all ways. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Anyhow, That's how it happened. Boy what a night.
    Everything happened NOT according to plan, but it all
    worked out anyway. Must've been meant to be! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
