Ahhh Sally, how can I not name you. You have been the bane of my life for this past four years plus, and also my inspiration. I think the further right you went, the further left I went. I am now an anarchist, and living in a tent.
I think we all became cartoon characters at times Sall, the pantomine dames that we invented on those crazy 'come in disguise' nights. And they were great fun weren't they, especially on a Friday night! I doubt for one moment, any of us would say what we did, what we do, in the real world. I think the board was a bit of an escape for all of us, and it saved kicking the dog, or giving one the kids a clip round the ear.
I am troubled tonight because I caused someone pain, and I honestly hadn't meant to. I want to assure that person and everyone else that I have kept no emails nor posts, nor any other information. I have never had the technical know how, the time, nor the inclination to do so. If a topic is not relevant to a subject I am interested in, it goes right over my head.
I have no intention of doing a hatchet job on anyone. I think we were all bored housewives/serial killers [look out for YGL Board, The Murder Trials] - I jest of course, our old board was a private place, for me just as much as it was to our v.diverse group of reprobates. Our auld board had a feeling to it, as though we were all in on a private girly conference call. A slumber party, where we would all lose our inhibitions and say what we really thought out loud. It was our 'special place', with that extra option where we could speak about other people, right in front of them.
Anyway, all secrets are all safe, lol, I grew up in a culture that taught me never to split on a mate. Unashamably flogging my book here, lol, never to grass, never to reveal a confidence. I saw our board as a private place, and yes, I see the irony, but it was a place in which to kick off our shoes and let our hair down. Like when your fella asks you what you spent 3 hours chatting on the phone to your best mate about, and you answer, 'this and that'.
I am not in the least concerned for myself, my life is an open book, quite literally. And that has been my choice. However, I just want to assure everyone I post with, that I totally respect their privacy and I bear no grudges. Really, I don't. I loved all the diverse characters that posted on the YGL and Europe Boards, even the ones I couldn't stand the sight of. A celt would understand that last sentence, lol. Especially that need for punch up on a Friday night, followed by a sing song courtesy of Cherub, sighs, I miss those days
Maybe we can all bury the hatchets somewhere other than each other's heads, and agree that we are probably not going to get along, but resist the urge to batter each other for a week at least.
Pps. Note to Sally, have got Sharon Stone to play you, and she's the right age! High five old girl!
Ppps. I have directed the crew that under no circumstances are you to be allowed anywhere near ice picks ;)
Pppps. Ooooh, got to go, have got Bette Davis's agent on the phone - apparently she has been revived! Watch this space...........
