Am still breathing

BTW - the *previous* post title should be sung to the tune of the refrain from from Rock the Casbah by The Clash. Of course. It just occurred to me that this might not be obvious and that perhaps the whole rest of the world isn't in my head hearing me hum. (Why the hell not!? You don't know what you're missing!)
I'm currently chortling because the last two things I downloaded from I-tunes are 'Somewhere over the Rainbow' sung by Judy Garland and then 'Rock the Casbah' by The Clash. Am amused.

I have been slack and have been hiding and weeping etc and generally feeling sorry for myself and convinced that am dying. Am not, or at least according to the medic types I'm not.

Bad old me has not judged the caption competition - you nearly all chickened out in the wake of Snoskred's quite alarmingly imaginative entry. Sadly, I don't think a single of her suggestions were correct - or perhaps I mean, fortunately..... ;) So I am withholding the genuine instruction card - unless someone begs me for it. There were also valiant entries from Pocketina and Dorothy. All of these did spark and smile and perhaps also a guffaw (fahbulous word, darlink).
So I think all deserve prizes so those of you who email me your address will receive something spiffing in the mail - although I'm not sure what yet. Obviously it ought to be a share of all those diamonds I'm acquiring. Sadly, I'm too greedy for that and I'm saving them to decorate my bathroom anyway.....

Toodles. And get singing along to The Clash!

Well, as Ferris Bueller once said "If you stick a lump of coal up his a** in two weeks you'd have a diamond" <--- maybe that's the secret..

Just where does one get coal these days? ;)

Glad you're still around. I'm convinced that am dying, and I have not been diagnosed with anything. :) Speaking of that, I am going to become a diamond - or my earthly remains will. I'm totally going to lifegem myself. Well I won't quite be here to do it but I will haunt those around me to make sure it happens. ;)

I'm glad you got a laugh out of it, that's what I was aiming for. ;)

I can hear the humming but I am pretending not to. ;)

Yes, let's go do fabulous things with the diamonds!

Glad to see you're back up, sweetie! I've been checking in on you almost daily.

I'm gonna email you my address, but in return, I need yours. For yarn purposes. And that's all I'm gonna say. :-)

I can feel your breathe in my prayers and each time you write a sentence, you are fighting to live. Sometimes I can come to your site and comment other times I just read.

Bless you and may my with you today.

Thank you snoskred for getting me here...

All my best Dorothy from grammology
