With extra alcahahol
I've been numb practically all day. Had a bit of a cry in the car, but I don't think the realisation has fully hit me yet...
*raises glass* Here's to you DLA
Last night's 'Celebration for Steve' was wonderful. So many people turned up to his funeral, and to the party. It was really touching.
I finally got to sample Mrs Meanders spring rolls!! Heaven! I also made a new friend. The lovely other half of DD!
Last night was a wonderful celebration, there were tears, laughter and memories galore. It was a tribute worthy of Steve and so many people made it special. His mother told me that there were about 300 at the funeral, and it felt like it. The little messages we were given that he'd written before he left us were so special.
Two days ago I was driving home from work and saw a rainbow, I remember smiling and saying "Hey Steve" and then I chose my 'piece of paper' out of the silver bowl and opened it and it read "Whenever you see a rainbow, know its me just saying hello" I couldn't stop crying after that.....my daughter said he was there, she said he was slouched in the large chair at the front of the church smiling.
I'll pass on the spring roll compliments LTG.
Everyone keeping warm, its cold this week *snuggles next to the Meanders Inn fire*
The nights are cold but the days aren't too bad. Hope everyone is keeping warm too.
*snuggles and keeps warm*
*then over heats as suddenly the temp reaches 10+ the what it was the day before*
*rushes out the back to get the summer gear, puts it on, enjoys it for 3 days*
*Only to have the temp drop back down to the normal - need 3 layers to keep warm, for the next 3 days until it heats up again*
. . . My Inner British seems to be coming out
*accent* Unpredictable weather we are have old sport, I say would you like some tea and scones?
You seemed to have summed that up pretty accurately.
Don't mind if I do, tea and scones sound perfect
Two days ago was Dark Lord Alfs birthday, he would have been 34.....tonight there is a celebration underway for his would be birthday, with a Spiderman cake and all. I hope he's there! Sadly I'm not 100% well tonight and
@PadmeDurron is at a party (South) that I need to collect her from as her father is out for the night.
@Oddball Fluxrifle is not well either so he and I are 'chillin' like 'villians' tonight for an early night before we go out with
@LittleTinGoddess and her husband for a movie in the morning. So, those at the party, have a wonderful time, share the love.
At the end of the month with have RFL, and then we have the NXP and then we need to make a date for the SXP, as well as a List.
. . .
That makes sense right?
I don't know what those abbreviations but I have a rough idea.
How are you?
Also how is everyone? It's been mighty quiet at the moment.
Couldn't have said it better myself, Robin!
I suspect that its been a busy month, but dont you worrry about it, they will return. . .or something .

How was everyone's weekend?
Apparently I've been a member for 7 years now. Time flies!!
I know, creepy huh! I have been here nearly 10 years
I was in High school! Ep 3 was coming out soon! . . . there where so many people here. . .
Jawa Juice anyone?
How was your weekend LTG?
Not quite 10 years Kooky, next year in June is your 10 years, I had my Ten years this year.....and computers were all the rage! LOL!!! No one had a mobile phone back then, and if they did they weren't the slick touch screens we use today! iPad's were something you either saw on Star Trek or read about on the X Wing Series....
Gosh, we seem to be of different eras Addie. Next March be 12 years for me. Let me see... there was school (ugh) and the awkwardness of dating and school dances. AOTC was about to come out. We were about halfway through the New Jedi Order. Nintendo's Gamecube was about to launch with Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader. The Gameboy Advance was going well as a handheld while those that didn't have one played snake on their mobiles. Everyone was either on ICQ or MSN. The message boards were alive with the excitement for the new films. We also had the second installment to The Lord of the Rings set to come out too and.... ah yes... the year after I got to meet Matthew Reilly for the first time.
I got my first mobile phone when I was 16, which was 2000. Good ole' Nokia 5110.
Even 7 years ago there was a fair bit of activity!
Not too bad, thanks. Saturday, we had a kid's party to attend, then went to Bracegirdles at Glenelg (*drool). Sunday we went to Mannum, to watch the Bathurst final at OP3's cousin's house.
How was yours?
Pretty Quite, I now play SWTOR (online Star Wars game) and it is AWESOME! I love it and I try very hard to make sure it does not consume me. . .but it is so good! such fun! so beautiful!
I am also working on a surprise for this week ends Relay for Life, so thats coming along well.
