How Many Uncommitted Singles in the ER Forum?

Pursuant to the Internet dating thread, I was curious as to how many posters on the ER forum are available and possibly interested in finding someone new.

This poll is different from most in that we don't care about the relative numbers for men/women; we're just interested in how many there are.

Is this marketing research for an FI and/or ER's only dating site?

If two forum members marry, then everyone on the forum must be invited to, and attend, the wedding.

Rented bargain basement tuxes, BYOB, home baked wedding cake, having it in the off season so travel is cheaper. The ER wedding of a lifetime.

The wedding would be at Khan's house, which would be decorated by Citrine. Martha could draft the prenup. Rev. Bunny could officiate and T-Al could play a trumpet voluntary. The happy couple could drive away in lazy's white mustang and honeymoon in Rich_in_Tampa's RV before setting up home in GoodSense's rental property.

What a team!

Do we have any wedding planners on the forum?

At the reception, the "Soapbox" political discussions can take place with everyone drunk and exhausted from doing the chicken dance.

CFB will bring home the bacon.
Obviously the honeymoon has to be in Hawaii with Nords and I providing free tour guides.

Hey, I'm getting excited about this! A trip to Hawaii with tour guides. But, alas...I'm not single.

Eh, maybe next time.......
