waking myself up, meme style

sitting at my desk, thinking why, god, is it pitch black and only 5:30? why? and desperately needing a cup of coffee before i can even think about writing that story that i should be writing - and i saw that not only vesper, but now susannah has done versions of the coolest meme around. so i had to. super fun. and deb, this one's for you. ;)
i borrowed this from susannah.

I loved this just as much as you knew I would, Bee. I'm doing this one for sure! (Probably Sunday instead of tomorrow because I want to do some pics with it!) Hugs to you, sweetie. I hope you have a good weekend.

rudy wellsand~ i was already having a brilliant day, but thank you for stopping by just the same. :P

darlene~ i'm okay. a bit hungover this morning, but okay. you too. (squeezes)

swampgrrl~ steal away. and no, to answer your question, i don't really feel that i have a "family". my parents split when i was 7, and my dad's always been a bit of an absent arse. but my mom, stepdad, stepbrother, sister and i held up well. my mom was the glue of us all and when she died 7 years ago - the family just *poofed*. my sister and i are still closer than close but i don't get calls, or cards, or support, or anything from any "parental figures".

jen~ ooh, you better. it is fun.

deb~ hugs right back.

jane~ i've been thinking about you too. i'm glad you touched base.

susannah~ LOL. well, when i was little i had great aspirations of being EVERYTHING - a singer included. and i auditioned for and was accepted to this choir that was incredibly professional - we did shows all over canada and england and everywhere - and we sang for royalty at a bunch of openings.

shaz~ i know what you mean. there is always that initial reticience on commenting, but once you do - you let this amazing community grow around you.
