  1. Have a lovely birthday CS. I hope all is well. X

  2. Here is hoping that these Birthday wishes find you well and happy. Happy Birthday. Big Hugs. XXX

  3. Happy birthday. We haven't seen you for a while - hope all is well. x

  4. Hey Mac, things are alrighty. The post was a quote from Neil Gaiman, I thought it summed up how I felt about a certain person perfectly. Obviously I don't hate love all round. :) haha well you hide your grumpiness well on here, I too am turning into a gargoyle but that's okay, I have better things to do now that require focus.

    How are things with you? <^_^>

  5. Hey, Sarah. How are things going? I like your post on love. I think love is a brilliant thing, and believe in it very strongly - as long as it's not me that falls into it!!! My heart turned to stone long ago. I'm a RIGHT grumpy b*****d now! ;) xx

  6. "Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you o...

      or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love."

      Yep, that's love for you. B U T.....the world is a better place with love in it. Hugs and hugs and hugs C_S. X

  7. Thanks Mac, hope you have a relaxing week. :) Take care x

  8. That is not a great deal of sleep, lady! Get some SnoozyTime in. It's good for you. I hope you're feeling much better soon. Xx

  9. Oo doctor day! Snoozing is much needed :) any particular books/dvds? I'm surviving on about 4-5 hours sleep, probably should try some snoozing myself.

  10. I, too, am going to the doctors next Tuesday. Off 'til then. I'm quite happy (I have to be honest) to stay here at home and read/watch DVD's and snooze, though. There's a lot to be said for snoozing. I haven't done a lot of it up until now...xx

  11. Hey Mac, not too bad, how is yours?

    I wasn't well enough for work this morning, have to wait till next Tuesday to see my doctor, tis ridiculous.

  12. Morning Sarah. How's your day going so far? xx

  13. I think I am going to have to re-read the end again, its very odd, but at some point I might go through the whole series again. A re-read of Kraken first though

  14. ok.....it cut some of my rambling off. I still have a bit left, I don't want it to end tho :(

  15. :D That's great! Do you think you would ever reread?

    When I came to the end of perpetual train bit I thought 'oh yeah that's what was meant earlier' and flicked back and reread bits.

    I think all this weirdness is spoiling me, normal stories aren't interesting me as much, love it! Like you also said, it mirrors real life but in a fantastical way!
