I wondered if she was perhaps being sarcastic, Sharon. :mrgreen:

Because, yes, clearly I retaliated. Heeeeee.

Or... maybe she thought I was justified! I mean, you did wake me up by throlling rolls at me, after I've had such a long and exhausting week.

:laughing-rollingred:

Steph, it is WONDERFUL to hear from you. I'm so glad you've had some relaxing time after the stress you've been under at school. (And I'm sorry you got that flat! And sunburn. Ouch.) Hope to hear from you again sometime soon. *HUGs*

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: Could be I suppose. I think she was just ignoring your behavior and pointing out mine though. ;) Just like a parent! Only one kid gets caught, though usually it is the second one to do something not the first. :shifty: :whistle:

Heeeheheheheehheeee.

Well, as someone who never used to get away with anything (while her younger sibling seemed to get off easy), I'm more than happy to be the one who gets to slide by without getting reprimanded. LOL.

But -- like a tattle-tale kid would do -- in my own defense I would merely say, "Sharon provoked me first!" HAHAHAHA :D

Hi all

Haven't been on in a while so a bit out of the loop; hope everyone is ok. Things are good in Liverpool and I'm looking forward to Hanne and Simone's visit in September, will be a blast.

Thinking about going to the sci fi convention Reunion 8 'cos Eddie McClintock is attending so that would be very cool.

Looking forward to the new football season, new manager, new start gotta try and be optimistic.

Anyway I reckon that's all for now.

Catch you later

Hi Jude! Great to hear from you. You should go to the sci-fi thing, Eric McCormick seems like a nice guy, I think it'd be worth it.

Steph, forgot to say earlier, sorry about the difficulties in the trip, flat tire! EEK! But glad you have been able to relax. Hope you continue to feel that way! :)

Excuse me, water is a whole lot easier to mop up than sweeping all these crumbs. Right RIGHT. Gonna take control here. Sharon, see this cream pie that has magically materialised in my hand? Take THAT <squelch> *runs in opposite direction*

It's okay, Hanne! We all had a truce yesterday evening. You don't have to worry about getting in the line of fire amidst water guns, cream pies, rolls or vegetables. LOL. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the cheer about my class! What's next? I'm not sure, yet. I really enjoyed taking this class, and two of the most talented guys in my class (who each have about ten years of professional graphic arts experience, and were only taking the class to learn how to build a web site) told me after class was done that there's going to be an advanced 'web site and development' course that starts this fall and is only on Monday nights. That could be a possibility. With that kind of schedule, I might be able to nudge myself into taking two classes. We'll see.

This week I need to go to school and talk to an advisor, see what my options are. And of course, in the meantime, I need to keep searching for a job. *sigh* That is a constant issue and one that needs to be rectified soon because I no longer receive Unemployment anymore. I've been out of work too long and have used mine all up. Which means my savings is dwindling and the more classes I take, the faster that money gets used up. It's kind of a catch 22. I'm taking the classes in hopes that it will help me get a good job, but I need a job in order to keep taking the classes (or, you know, to survive in general, LOL).

And how are you doing? :D

Hey everyone. I'M BACK! It has probably been over a year since I last visited, but then I have been so very busy lately (although looking at Facebook would show otherwise).

For those who remember me and remember I have a little girl called Temperance, well, she turned 2 last month and people still love the name. We keep getting "oh I haven't heard that name before".

How is everyone?

Hopefully I will come back again now and take part in the forum again, especially when season 6 starts (even though I am in England and have that pesky delay due to downloading :shhh: ).

Al, I am sooooo pleased to see you! Welcome back! I loved reading you before and am looking forward to sharing views again. Yes, I remember beautiful little Tempe and I'm sure she remains the gorgeous jewel that she was 2 years ago. Keep visiting - always a pleasure to have you here. :)

You can judge whether she is still a cutie or not from that :think:

Ahhh Thank god.. lol

Here in DK it's going okay.. semi-busy at work, we can surely feel that most of the industry is on holiday.. now only 1½ month only a week of holiday for me.. looking forward to it. :D
Well, the bowling season is starting again on Wednesday - well pratice begins. Our first official match in the new league is on September 5th - can't wait.. It'll be exciting whether we'll survive or crash. :think:

As for my diet and working out, that is going okay.. still have a scare of the scale, afraid it'll bite me.. :lol: From today Aug 1st I have cut off all that is bad for you - which I hope I can maintain, wish me luck!
I'm going to the gym almost everyday - well, I have 2-3 days off weekly. I attend various classes - mostly zumba and aerobic, besides that I use the machines.. Love it!

I'm returning to Liverpool in September again, which I look so much forward to - just not to see Jude, the gang and the city it's self but also to meet Simone..

THink I have covered everything.. It's getting close to my bedtime, heading for the gym for the 3rd day in a row tmw and I got work..

*hugs*
