I felt something fishy when I didn't see Astronuc's beard.
I got suspicious about the time Moonie and Russ claimed they knew nothing, yet after few posts they catched up with other staff members. So...
...I set the trap. Image I posted was hosted on my server, so I could easily checked in server logs who and from where tried to access it. And while everyone pretended to be at some undisclosed location all seemed to post from home. Monique posted something - and just before she posted someone form chello.nl fetched the image. Before Ivan posted image was fetched only be people with US reverse domains and by someone from UK and someone from Finland. IIRC Zapper posted something and just before he posted someone from IL fetched the image. So it seemed like there was something fishy about whole story.
What, is it so unbelievable that I would take a vacation? actually that's true..So true!
I doubted the trip when Monique said that she joined the trip!
You're too clever!...I set the trap. Image I posted was hosted on my server, so I could easily checked in server logs who and from where tried to access it.

We were starting to worry it was getting too obvious when we had those miscommunications about who was and wasn't supposed to be at the wedding.
The bridge you went rollerblading under? Oh Greg.
Nice joke you guys! The story was a hoot to follow.
It's still too bad that berkeman got so badly sunburned, though.
We've both been part of PF for many years yet never really connected. It took six years before MIH and I started to "find" each other. It slowly happened once we became friends on facebook two years ago. We would make small chat a few times a week. I was impressed with how easy it was to banter away. About three months of banter I was traveling near her home town and we decided to meet up for some coffee. I can still remember her walking towards the shop and thinking "wow she is really attractive". We hugged and dang did she smell great. Haha just little things I remember. Anyway, we had a very pleasant talk for a few hours about PF and ourselves. MIH had to visit some family later that night, but we planned to have lunch the next day. What can I say, after that lunch I left with a bit of a crush. As I left for home my heart wanted to stay! Over the coming weeks our chatting became more frequent and longer. I don't think any staff at PF suspected anything but would make a comment about how cute and silly we were being towards each other.
This past thanksgiving my entire family was all over the world so I had no one to spend it with. MIH graciously offered me to come and spend it with her and her family. I hopped joyfully on the plane. Little did I know what would transpire that night, haha. I met most of her family which was very nice. Nothing unusually there, all good. But later that night we were playing the game "Taboo" in the family room and the door bell rang. It happened to be one of we ex boyfriends drunk and wanting to talk with her. Talk about uncomfortable! I did something that is a bit out of character (and a couple glasses of wine helped) and I went to the door. I asked MIH to hold back and go back in the house. I then went outside and closed the front door. I had a little chat with the ex boyfriend outside and persuaded him to leave. In fact he did leave and as I got back inside no one said much, but I could tell from MIH and her family's eyes and smiles that I got major respect for solving the incident. Long story short, that was the start of MIH and I being official!
Over the next few months we would fly back and forth every other week to see each other. Early February 2010 I surprised MIH with a ring outside the coffee shop we first met at while on a walk at night. She of course said yes! For years we joked about dreaming to go to Bora Bora. I said let's get married there and invite some PF members! Looking at our schedules we didn't see any time to get married for a long time and we wanted it now! Thankfully we let the staff know and many could make it out to Bora Bora the next month for our wedding. It was such an amazing time. Monique was hit on one night by a hairy old drunk at the bar as we laughed. While jet skiing Dion accidentally rammed into mine and MIH flew off. Moonbear and Evo were great story tellers the entire time and had us cracking up. Most were only there for four days, but MIH and I stayed for a total of 10 days and used it as our honeymoon!
"Once I got back I proposed to her under a bridge we'd always stop at while rollerblading."
Then who are the people in the pictures?
They are the real PF'ers in Bora Bora, it was just the wedding that was a joke.
What, is it so unbelievable that I would take a vacation? actually that's true..
If I told you that I'm going to the Seychelles next week, would you believe that?
on the other hand I don't remember cristo saying anything about joining the trip but his picture and name is there...
Everything was fake. No PF'ers are in those photos :D In fact those are just images I took from google images lol. The top header is also fake with me and MIH. I took one of her fb photos and pasted myself next to her. Works pretty well because it's black and white. That takes a lot of color mismatches out.
