Actually klatchian coffee would be really funny here, sneak it into the punsch and everybody here would stop talking to one another halfway through the party.

Not swine flu I hope, good job that zoonoses dont get transmitted to computers.

Oh yeah get well soon. Ever tried writing or painting when youve got a fever?, it's amazing how the fantasy works when your brains cooking. Only problem is that when your well you dont really understand what it is your looking at.

I agree, we have some of the best mushrooms in the world here, but thats my past life. Wrote the history of bongs once after a rave, it was 8 pages of ununderstandable drivel but fun to write. Fever works the same but better.

I think one of my freinds kept it but I dont know where she is anymore.

I am writing a book though (not while wasted) one day I will at least try to get it published, trying to write about 500 words a day (or night as due to the neck I only sleep a couple of hours at a time) It's about twins saving the world with the help of gnomes by helping the ghosts find signal free paths to their resting places.

Sounds as if I could do shamanistic tours here in the autumn with mushroom tea and bongs. Shame I dont do that type of stuff anymore :roll:

You're never too old, and the music's never too loud! :P

Just out of interest, snowballs, what is the general impression in Sweden about those two Swedish women who claim they were raped by Julian Assange? :?

Dont know, but it seems strange that they were freinds with him afterwards. As for the Swedish authorities, it's embarrasing that they seem to be doing the states dirtywork. Even if he was guilty of not rape as it isnt classed as rape its never going to come to trial even if it was somebody else that did it.l
