I CAN'T HELP BEING A MAMA HEN

I need to know that mirasol and sangueuk are alright. I've seen all of my other UK friends on the lj comm london_070705 (I think? I'm shaking) and all I can think about is how I lost co-workers in the 9/11 attacks and how I cancelled my trip to work in the AMEX building the night before and I'm just kinda freaking out.

I hope all of my friends in the UK know that we are horrified, worried and wishing for the best. But then Brits aren't known for rolling over and taking it, are you? Give 'em hell.

Sangue?? Bear?? I'm worried and wanting to know you are okay.
ETA: Okay, my peoples are good. Everyone I know of in the London area is safe, and their family as well. Have to go away from the media for a bit. Seen too many Brits crying or scared, and somehow it's like watching my dad cry.

*hugs and kisses to everyone, deep shuddery sigh*

Bear lives near me in Portsmouth on the South Coast so she should be okay.

*kisses you everywhere it's decent*

Thank you!!! I just... The worst moment in my life was the day of the 9/11 attacks and hearing back that people I had worked with over the years were just... gone.

I know this isn't one the same size and scale, but I'm just heartbroken for my UK friends.

Okay. One down... One left to hear about... SANGUELINA!!

*hugs you TIGHT*

*holds your face*
*kisses you full on the mouth*
*clutches the minis and Mr. Sangue and makes you all tea*


I'm going to go away for a bit and stop shaking, okay? Seriously. Seeing your email was the best thing today.

I know how you feel. I am still waiting to hear from dakegra because there's not been hide nor hair of him and he is one of those 4+ posts before the Americans wake up kinda people. *sigh* I mapquested directions of his house to London and it is 200 miles & 3 hours so I know he is most likely ok, but I don't know, ya know?
I sent emails to his yahoo & work addresses to let him know that his "Minnesota possee" is thinking about him & worrying about him but I just keep telling myself that he's ok & just doesn't have internets.
*sigh*
And no one here at work has really even had much of a reaction to the London bombings... ugh.
*cuddles you while we wait*
Also, I have no icon for this...

GAH!! Okay, okay, he's just away from the internet, that's all. He's fine. I'll be checking in with you.

Until then, *HUGS*

He's OK!!!

"Hi Sharon

I was away at a meeting in Mansfield (still nowhere near London, thank goodness). It's a crazy situation, news is still coming in. I didn't know anything about it until people arrived at my meeting - I hadn't had the radio on in the car so had no idea.

K's brother and sister, both of whom live/work in london, are fine, as are the various friends we have there. I appreciate you worrying about us all though.

dave"

*hugs you back!* (*plus a happiness grope!*)

It's amazing how connected we all can be through the power of the internet, you know?

I'm sending wishes and happy thoughts and clapping my hands and I believe in fairies and all that, too.

Oh, Stoney. I want to make a post but I don't know what I'd say, y'know? Everyone I know in London is okay, at least so far as I can tell. *cuddles with you* *hides from dumb world* *except for listening to Air America*

I mean, I'm safe as kittens here in the suburbs of Dallas. Really. But I had a friend who's daughter was killed in the OKC bombings. One of the children in the daycare. And I had business contacts that I talked to daily, tough New York stock traders that laughed at my sweet, southern accent but knew I'd rip them a new asshole if they got in my face and we'd laugh about it, and then there phones were just... dead. And then I'd call to find out if so and so had missed the meeting, maybe? Maybe they didn't go like I cancelled out, you know? And their phone lines were just... redirected. Because the whole goddamned building was gone and everyone in it.

And this ISN'T the same, but man. Madrid. London. Fucking DAILY in Iraq, Iran... It sure feels the same.

But it reminds me how small the world really is, and how many connections out there I have, and how many people I care about and who care about others, and it makes it feel more like a family.

And I'm reading everyone's posts and feeling like I'm in a big living room with all the people I care about. So you just say what you want, or have blank space, or whatever you want, and just know that I'm thinking hard about the people I care about and wishing everyone was safe and comforted.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
