It's me! I'm back! [Jun. 13th, 2008|12:29 am]
Well hello folks,

I've been out of circulation for a wee while due to a very pleasant holiday in the Isle of Wight, and although I've caught up with all the posts of my f-list, there's no way I'm going to have the time or energy to respond to individual posts as I would have liked.

Suffice to say:

londonronnie: I am eternally grateful for the many happy hours and magic moments that have been the fruits of your research labours! Oh, and G's mate was great in that Maggie Thatcher thing (as was the son of dear old and much missed Roy Kinnear). I'm not surprised you were gobsmacked - I was too!

probodie: I am so totally with you on the pop thing. Two contenders I would put forward for 'Greatest POP Song of All Time' (as opposed to 'Greatest Song' in an artier sense, although both categories would be equally valid): 'Please Please Me' by The Beatles or 'Dance Yourself Dizzy' by Liquid Gold. Actually, there are loads, LOADS more. Oh, and Two Songs I Would LOVE To Sing Karaoke But Sadly Have Never Had the Opportunity: 'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon and 'Silver Lady' by David Soul (although the titular gender perspective might be problematic for that one).

byslantedlight: So sorry to hear of your job and accommodation woes. Talk about an over-the-top, knee-jerk, horse-has-already-bolted-anyway reaction to whichever doofus it was who left those papers lying about. I'm keeping everything crossed for your luck on all fronts to change soon ((HUGS)) 

Anyway, going back to the Isle of Wight (which we have already decided we will be doing), here are some piccies that I think sum up our little soujorn rather nicely...

Tis WONDERFUL to see you back on LJ again, and after a fair while away.

Ohhh I had forgotten about Dance Yourself Dizzy. Already have the Beatles ones, but I love DYD!!! I am such a sad bitch, I know LOL

Um, but as for pics...cant see any, honey.

Oh and hey, me and the ronmeister are gonna be in London the weekend of 16th/17th August for *cough* SoHo Pride...if you fancy meeting up?? If you are free. I'm thinking pubs??

Wotchya (a wonderful early 1980s greeting)

Piccies are now online, loud, clear and proud!

And talking of pride, or rather Pride, I certainly should be around on those dates and would love to meet up!

Hello - nice to see you! And thanks for the crossed bits and pieces - I'm kicking the eejit as well, but you never know, maybe it'll work out wonderfully, right?!

My sadness now is that I can't see your pictures, and I'd really like to! I do like your new icon though! *g*
