Hope all our American Friends are having a lovely holiday, (glad we dont have it though, christmas is enough of a mess on).

Its day 20 for me and i think im becoming a bit obsessive about counting days, there are worse things to obsess over i suppose.

Just wanted to say im feeling good and wanted to thank everyone who posts on these sites for making me laugh and sometimes cry and for saying the things i need to hear. X

Still at war with myself...I'll try not to post today.
If a phone to a drunk is a pistol, the internet's a bloody gattling gun, you wouldn't believe the chaos I caused, online, yesterday. (not here fortunately. SR is sanctuary, in the 'Highlander' kinda usage.) Politics and alcohol...meh!.
Take care, hope to see y'all, sober tomorrow,

Sigh.

you know i use to drink so i could let out the anger and bitterness...it's weird cause we talk about using to hide from emotions, but I know I also used it to let some out....

As time goes on sober I am having to learn how to acknowledge and express my feelings and stuff without the aid of alchohol. As I'm sure you have all noticed, I am a very angry person...so I need to find ways to deal with wht makes me angry when it is happening so that it doesn't get locked inside and require huge explotions to release!:ghug

I'm facing up to the fact that I need to find a new way to relax, the normal process of drinking until just about being able to stand before going to bed is gone and replaced with this perky, focused, eager wibble... which is wicked apart from i'm now as wound up as a bit of piano wire!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plus i've burnt my tongue

You definately, positively, absolutely, certainly CANNOT say you've burnt your tongue without telling the story.

I think that is going to be my observation for today. That it is impossible to explain how you've burnt your tongue without it being funny.
I mean, many other injuries can bring on the sympathy they deserve, but a burnt tongue? It's for laughing at no matter what, from piping hot pizza to a branding iron.

Come on let's have it.

I can't say I'm perky and focused, more aimlessly restless. Can't sit still, but not very good at doing anything meaningful. Even my fingers are restless, which is good for typing!

And wound up, bloody hell. I'm am so tense, I'm like a ninja, lol!!!

Do I want to know how you burnt your tongue, Wibble?

Nands - you, angry? Can't imagine it. You seem so chilled.

If Wibble ain't going to tell us then we'll have to make it up.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story so ............
