Update... [Mar. 15th, 2006|06:02 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |tiredtired]
[Current Music |Portishead - Glory Box]

Just thought I'd say hello... it's been a while since I updated. I might do a voicepost this evening for fun... once I get Gizmo working with Voiceposting!

Caroline and Amy are up in Yorkshire with the outlaws at the moment, and besides Caroline being home on Monday night, I'm not going to see them again until Saturday. I don't think I could convey how quiet the house is at the moment. Probably the reason why I'm still at work!

I watched The Breakfast Club on Sky the other night, and have come to the following conclusion: Ally Sheedy has got to be one of the sexiest women on the silver screen. Not just for her gorgeous smile, but also her quirky accent!

In other news, someone I know deleted their journal a short while back. I thought nothing of it as they hadn't posted in months anyway. Now I discover that they didn't delete it, but renamed it, keeping only a select few people on as friends. Whilst I'll never question anyone's decision for doing whatever they want with their own journal, I can't help but feel a little stung that I - along with a number of other people whom I would have expected to have been kept - hadn't been added back.

On a lighter note, Amy got a letter yesterday morning. It's the first social letter she has ever received, and it was from little Sophie! I couldn't help but fill up when I read it, it was so sweet. Thank you Sophie, from Amy and Amy's mummy and daddy! :o)

I need sleep... and my wife and daughter.

Re. the LJ deletion

The social dynamics of LJ and the Internet can be very weird. Sometimes too weird for me!

Re: Re. the LJ deletion

Indeed. Although I'm not sure that 'social dynamics' applies in this case. I think there's a perfectly valid and acceptable reason behind it.

I mean, it's not even as though we were in regular contact... the last time I think I saw this person was in a bar in Sheffield, well over a year ago.

I shouldn't really be upset about it... it's just that I didn't expect to be removed, that's all.

Re: Re. the LJ deletion

I would still say it's social dynamics of some sort, but I know it can be odd and dissapointing when someone deletes you out of the blue.

Well I wasn't about to say anything about March suddenly being February 2: The Sequel...

I'm sorry, I think the issue in question is my fault. I am going to try and fix it but I don't think that I can, I hate that guards appear to have been put in place as a result of a person that I haven't been in a very long time.

Most things are my fault, it's going back a very long time so hopefully I'm wrong :)

Glad Amy liked her little letter :o)

Breakfast Club is FAB!!! I love all the characters, especially Judd Nelson's - he's so funny! And I agree that Ally Sheedy is a stunning woman!

Just to let you know...

When I renamed the journal I had the option of clearing all the friends off. I chose it because there were people on there I'd never met and stainsteelrat's social dynamics issue would have reared its head ending up with me trying to rationalise with those people who perhaps were more friends to me than I ever realised or perhaps wanted to be. So I drew a line under the journal and started again.

I didn't tell anyone about the journal at all for about a week, but decided to let Steph and Tina in on it eventually (after waiting for people to find me!) because they had inspired me to start again.

And to finish - a quote from the first post I made since coming out of the Journal closet:

"So, no offence to any previous friends - it wasn't like you realised anyway! Besides, I have to earn your trust back now to start reading your friends only entries."

Didn't realise it would case a scene :)

It wasn't my intention to cause a scene, but in hindsight maybe I'm just realising (again) that I don't treat my friends and mates very well.
