Hope all is ok?

Life is good. I just have issues with anxiety and depression. Other people's suffering squishes me.
I'm sure I'll be okay either way with this. I don't have to read the whole thing. I just have to write my chapter. And ignore feels. :D
This group makes me want to do it though. That and that darn little cup.
Looks like I forgot to grab my last cup too. :/
Short version. I'll take whatever I get . I'll be fine. :D

Well, if you're ever feeling squished, whether it's a NiaD or any time in the future, you've got my email address.
I'm good at listening.

Yo pork-sausage! Are we posting "real time bull manure" here or are you starting anew thread?

I have a wife and 2 kids that I can only attribute to a wiggle, a giggle, and the realization that she was out of my league so I might as well be happy with her as a friend. 26 years marriage later, I can't imagine life without her. -Me 10/7/09

So nice to be in Australia where the timing is so much more civilised than the UK and daylight saving gives us an additional hour. At 10 am I read my brief over coffee and a croissant (all produced with copious electricity) and now I'm off!
Best wishes to all my collaborators and special thanks to Rog (even though he included US spellings - eg. 'Defense', in the brief)

Piggy is ALREADY telling me I can't kill off the characters! I thought this was MY chapter. Now I have to add some gratuitous violence just to make the point the LOOOOONG way.

You can't kill them if I kill them first.
