It's not ZC. but I'm right here right now

I must say, I have never before in my life had access to so many people as at this site. It has been fascinating and at times fecking heart-breaking.
The vanity in the face of such sorrow..it surprised me but it also made me tougher and more aware of the variety of people that exist. I really was educated by you lot. I found things I did not expect at a U2 fan site.

masectomey...scary word that mad. I know lots of breastless women, some of them my dead great-aunts. I give thanks for the health of ...u know who...everyday...sagged or not, they are there .
I was at a concert in the cathedral last night(n trying to raise money to save the premises of St Cecelia's Music Academy. I looked around and 3 of my friends were sitting there( one a performer who specialises in Celtic music, his wife survived breast cancer and the mongrel thing returned after 7 years...she was supposed too be cured)) All 3 are all recently widowed because of cancer and heart disease, people in their 40's.I was sitting there with a tear in my eye , not just because the music was so beautiful.So no taking anything for granted mate...no siree Bob.


back to things Interference....and less sad-making
'scuse I...I found a pink smillie I had not seen before until yesterday. I thought how good it looked with the "der" smilie, another I'd not used....so please, indulge me. I was thinking pink and yellow look good together



like the Wizard of Id........"I enjoyed that"
