    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Thank you! And probably. Either that or "Learning to Fly" by Pink Floyd.

No AQI though, so that's something at least.

    Unique my dear Em, unique. Not weird. People we don't like are weird (kidding)

    I was born in Plymouth. My father last I heard lived just across the water in Torpoint. I like Portsmouth, though truth-be-told the HMS Victory is the only reason I have been there :/

    I have a scar from the HMS Victory. When I was a kid I went to visit and I jumped up on to a bench and my toes slipped. I took all the skin off the front of my leg and bled everywhere. My kids love the fact that I have left blood on the Victory.

    Bit on the nomadic side there, being a bit nosy here, but where in Bristol area were you?

    Ah, I didn't realize that's why. My brother stutters a bit and my mom taught him to "pretend he's a robot" to get through difficult words, or to sing it. It was something she figured out when she heard him singing and realized he doesn't stutter then. It comes and goes and he's almost 16 now and I still wonder if he'll grow out of it.

    Oddly enough, I think my singing voice is as lot like my speaking voice. Now to find a song and make a fool of myself for you guys. If we ever have a Grok get together, I'm totally going to insist we play Rockband or have a karaoke thing set up.
