Yes...strangeangel...it was actually a good movie. It held my interest and I think it was pretty well done. Except maybe for God being a child.?..does make you think a bit. Talk about letting go, and letting God. Wowza!

Ikea. I like going along just to watch the couples arguing about whether the 6ft long 3ft wide box they have will fit in the car......... but I'm a bit evil like that!

I like Ikea furniture but I hate feeling like cattle walking round the maze that is the showroom.

Ah ikea. I once went with my mum and aunt, we lost my aunt and tried to find her for well over an hour in that maze- turns out she's just made herself at home on a comfy recliner and dozed off

Hi all,

Beginning of day twelve for me. I thought I'd post my own song. I think everyone can relate to this.

Be safe and be strong.

Cheers

Immri, ha! Your aunt became part of the display! I love that.

I like IKEA. My new kitchen is IKEA so I spent a good amount of time there. I have to go back to get a replacement piece. And I didn't try fitting a kitchen in the car. Had it delivered.

I'm heading back to bed. Early early. Hope everyone is doing well.

A Star Wars weekender is amazing. I had one about six months ago and it was magical. I'm a fan needless to say!

Welcome ZaB!!! Congrats on day 12! have you got a plan or support to help keep going? Glad you jumped on the sober weekend bus!

Awesome cat waveridermke! Welcome to SR and the weekender. How are you doing?

Sisterbobby good to see you!

BMac... funny when I see you vid on the ipad it has trouble. Thats why I adjusted the link in that one post. It works on the pad now. hmmm..

Good tunes from everyone. Lots of musical knowledge and taste on this thread always!!

So good morning!!! I woke a bit sore and feeling great physically. Worked out yesterday and nothing beats that feeling of waking knowing my muscles hurt due to something good and not a night of crack and booze.

I was thinking back of what it was like to be so excited waiting for my cocaine to be delivered every Friday night. I always had home delivery many times a night. I knew I was effed when I ordered the last delivery after 2 am. but I could NEVER imaging going back to that.

Anyway!!! Happy Saturday / Sunday!!

Cool trailer SW... but I have some trouble with that match up. Superman is Super for a reason. Batman's just a rich dude with a fetish.

It's true, Batman is a mere human! But I will always root for the bat. I re-read Final Crisis the other day and ended up sobbing.
