And so it comes to an end...

Well, here I am, sitting at Flora's puter, depressed, not looking forward to tomorrow. Everyone else has departed, and now only my mother and I remain. The last two days have been very sad as one after another, members of our little group have had to say farewell.

I arrived here eleven days ago and straight away I felt like I had always been here (except for the freezing off of my butt constantly). Everyone got on so well together, we were all a bit surprised actually. Sarah is just so sweet but also much naughtier than we were led to believe (which is a good thing!), Flora and Rowenna are just like Barb and I and so I felt very much at home with them, Amber is the pharmaceutical queen who has a drug for every occasion and is just gorgeous, Matt is a big sweetie who never complains about having to give a complete stranger hugs and Alex is just so wonderful. We were all rather scared about meeting Alex as we think of him as 'God' but after the jet lag and sleeping pills wore off he quickly fit in with us and gets my two thumbs up of approval as he let me use his shoulder to slump on constantly.

We have gotten up to so very much and I'll post more in depth later when I get home, complete with photos but Edinburgh is just lovely. We've got so many in jokes and sayings now that I'm sure we'll piss of everyone else in the forum as we just spout out random quotes that we all get but will mean nothing else to the rest of the regulars.

Anyway, that's about it for now. Tomorrow morning will be hard for me as I have to say goodbye, but I'm sure in no time I'll be home again and chatting to everyone on MoH. Plus there's the up side that I'll get to see Sarah fairly soon.

See you all in a couple of weeks.

:( I know I went to bed in tears on Saturday night, I was missing everyone already.

Oh, and The Line!

I'm missing everyone already too!
We need to put our heads together and invent some sort of teleportation device to solve the air fare problem.

It's so, so quiet around our house at the moment.

Oh, really?!? Hmmmmmmm!

Well, now we can all start planning our next big gathering. . .or perhaps work on taking over some tropical island on which we can all live together happily ever after.

Is there talk of anothr gathering? So soon? And where? Will I be allowed after dropping out? Tune in next week to find out the answers to these questions, and much more...

As if you didn't know that already, Acci. ;-)

That's true, Smerk, there were those pictures you sent. . .and then there's all that stuff that I heard about you from those Navy guys. . .but there's a difference between knowing something and really knowing it.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the rest of your world travels, Nettie, and I'm looking forward to hearing from you again!

Whoa, my verification word is the exact same one I had last time! Isn't it supposed to be randomly generated?
