Almost New Year...

i've just had a small rant on stretfordditto's page (sorry, babe) about James' last message - it is still being dragged around...
*shakes head*  What makes me SUPER cross, above all else, is that due to the time delay, i never actually got to read it with my own eyes...   i had to wait for someone to copy it to me to find out what all the goddam fuss was about.
So James screwed up on a word...  how many is that now?!!   He just takes his amazingly large foot out of his delicious mouth and carries on.   He says it himself, he can be a dick... but not intentionally insulting in this case!
i was not at all surprised to hear who had moaned on the most vigorously - thick-as-two-short-planks CarolM, she of the milkbottle glasses and matching brain.   Many of you will know the story of her continued stupidity, i'll be bound but i was surprised at one of the other names that came up...  she better tread lightly round me for a while...  CarolM keeps saying she won't post anymore but i notice she still does.   What a surprise.....not

i will be dangerous if this little storm in a teacup stops James from writting messages to us and i sincerely hope common sense will prevail in the end.  WE LOVE THE MESSAGES, JAMES!!  Ignore the .0000000000000001 % who actually complain - mostly to hear their own voices i think, as they cannot possibley think they represent anyone but themselves.
If Steve or whoever he has monitoring the boards can see, the majority could not believe anyone took it seriously.  It was too late to email him myself by the time i got to read the message but i was delighted so many took the trouble to email him and set him right.

Damn, now i'm going to bed cross again!  And i have to go visit Jobseekers tomorrow!!!    Let's hope i sleep it off!

i miss Lynnie - away two days and it feels like ages...   She says it is cold in Milan and she forgot her gloves...  Bex sounds like she is having a blast and loving it.   i am glad they are having fun.

P.S.  Spoke with Char on Christmas Eve and she is going ok - saving to have the second cateract removed, which we think will be quite soon.  Her arm has mended nicely and getting some therapy from the Brown Blob [the puppy her idiot son bought, heaven alone knows why, as he never looks after it but expects his blind mother to do it] - how a woman with her brains spawned a son with so much intelligence and a total lack of common sense, is quite beyond me...  She sends her love and best wishes for the festive season to all.

You go girl! One hell of a good rant, I love it. I have never understood what all of the fuss was about. Maybe I'm dense or maybe I am blessed with a sense of humor where our boy is concerned. Wish some others would grow one.
Just wanted to support your little rant and hope you keep telling it like it is.
Good luck with the Jobseekers visit.

Thanks Pan!
Appreciate the support! i guess at my age people's intolerance should not surprise me but there is always room for one more apparently.
i couldn't have a go at Madam Thick on the boards but i'm damned if i will pull punches in my own backyard as it were.
Take care and have a terrific New Year!

Is that argument about 1 word STILL going on!?!?!! My icon sums up my feelings about that! LOL!

Thanks for the update about Lynnie - I'm so glad they got away OK because last I heard the fog was threatening the flight.

Yeah, know how you feel... Still want to throttle the stupid bint tho'

That fog lingered for the longest time, Lynnie says what do i expect, this is East Anglia! low lying country prone to lots of damp things apparently *snorts* should suit me to a T... But DAYS of freezing fog no good for aeroplanes.
i guess this was a good time to come and live here, as i will see the worst of the country before i see the best. i bet it is lovely down by the river in summer...

Am i finally going to see you this year, in May? i'm told you were at the Mermaid but i totally didn't see you - no idea what you looked like, yuh see...
later, babe

I am going to try to get to the concert on the Friday - although I'm not certain I'll make it in time to get anywhere near the front as I work until 5pm and the journey will take about 1 hour 15 minutes to get there LOL!

The W&M thing was a very last minute decision (literally the day before) - I did meet Lynnie and Chris, so they can probably describe me (I tower over them by about 1 foot! LOL!)

Thanks, my love! She SO gets up my nose... i was horrified to hear there were a couple of others [not to the same extent tho] but i haven't had that confirmed with my own ears or eyes, so not commenting...

Char's first cateract op was a complete success but doesn't guarantee complete sight as this is the eye with the odema [sp? never get it right] under it. But she does see more now and if the lights are not too bright, she can now see the top 2 lines on the eye chart!! So yes, HOORAY! all that nasty eye operation stuff was worth it, especially as they removed a lot of scar damaged tissue too. This & the odema were due to all that chemo she had. If the right eye responds as well, she may actually be able to read properly and then have glasses prescribed.
It is horrifying how slowly vision stabalises but i guess as long as it does, that is all good. Not nice to be virtually blind when it can be corrected. But it's slow... taken over a year to do, so far.
She then has to save and get a motorised cart as i can't push her anymore. THEN when she doesn't need someone to look after her ALL the time, she will be able to go see James again. She has her fingers crossed for 2008.

i am now going to have another cuppa and lie down for a bit - i joined the Library today! *snorts* that doesn't exhaust but i did borrow a couple of books! and buy a new wooden loo seat... hate those cheap plastic ones that fall apart if you breathe on them! Handy, it was in the sale and almost half
price..... AND i found my local Lush shop! Yay!
later, my little honey-Chrispy!

Yay, she's back!

Dunno why these incredibly STUPID people think the world is waiting breathlessly for their next utterance - it it SO not about them...

And i have this craving for fried rice... funny i never have a sweet craving, always savoury... Wouldn't you know it, it going to be slog to find a Chinese that delivers in Cambridge, hate moving for that reason alone! Miss me chinese...

See you soon, darling!

Oh good grief! That's still being talked about. Geez. What an idiot.
