Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

dude, thats exactly what i feel like, except the lexy and the rainbow serpant bit maybe....

i spent a year in canterbury and learned to love the uk and the people i met.
i lived in vienna for 14 years of my life and i have a great time, but i always miss england and keep thinking about what i left behind and how great the people are that i met.

i miss you guys.
a lot.
ill do my best to come back.

hug smile

If it was just the uk and not ME ubblove as I suspect go stand next to an open fridge whit a drizzling hose over your head then get everyone to complain how cold and wet it is and how crap their jobs are and you just about have it. frown

Humm but we still seem to be up for a spin in the blistering cold and wet god we must love poi.
ubblove

or the social life it creates around us ubblove ubblove ubblove ubblove


before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Thats got it...

You forgot about tea and cake though... Nowhere else in the world (ive only been to Germany, France and Spain) does a good cup of tea...

Oh yeah, and dont forget our overwhelming sense of national pride, even though we are little more than an American outpost, and we havent got much to be proud of...

And you dont get as many herons around these days...

i think you should get a loan and come back lol.....have you spent anything on your credit card allready?, if you have use that as an excuse to get a loan, to pay them back, and go a bit crazy with the loan and somehow end up over here

problem solved
