Messages through the ether

I'm sat eating the pizza (standard on offer Sainsbury 4-cheeses plus some quorn slices I added myself), the phone beeps.

Megabus vouchers paid for by a certain someone. I'm off to Yorksher (again) for trhe bank holiday weekend. I go to post. I hit the WiFi. I log into [ profile] deepestsender. I hit the WiFi (again). I type this. I hit the WiFi, pull the connector out and hope this'll help. I hit post, happy, despite the damn WiFi.

Pizza. Is that fattening enough for you m'dear?

Hope you put extra cheese on it :D

Srsly, last time I saw you, you had DEFINITELY lost noticeable amounts of weight. And you know, it probably IS healthier. But I like you as you are. And you'd end up having to buy new clothes, and I know how skint you are.

It's not just you that I get like this with, if that's any comfort. I think it's because I have had two friends who turned out to be anorexics, and then that whole thing with me when I worked at Spoons (I sent you the picture, yes?)... So I worry when people lose weight anyway. A bit extra is better than not enough.

But yeah, getting the five a day is important. Vitamins and such.

I just like you snuggly. But if YOU'RE happy that's what matters.

For posting on LJ, there's a few editor tools out there you can use; type into it, and then just hit "send" when you're done. They're quite nice in that if the connection drops you don't have to worry about losing the text, obviously. I used Semagic, I don't know if that still exists.

Not that that solves your router problems obviously - I'm just a master of the workaround ;-)

Ah ha, sorry - I read that as being an LJ friend for some reason. That part of the post makes considerably more sense now ;-)

Hi, sorry for butting in, I just noticed your comment above mine on Mat's LJ, and thought 'I recognise that name'.

Been poking around in my photo folder, and found a picture - not of you but of the best dope shop in Amsterdam, called the Grey Area! :P

Totally out of context but:

I'd love to go to autumn conference in Brighton and am working on some free accommodation, but can't afford the ticket without working - are you able to put in a good word for me with someone so maybe I could tag along with you and do some shifts? I'm a very able administrator...
