Thought I’d Something More To Say

Thought I’d Something More To Say…

Depression, depression. Not really having anything to say, and feeling as if no one would want to hear it even if I did. Yada, yada, yada. So let’s just listen to some great music instead… :roll:

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I’d something more to say…

Release The Kraken!

Well my friends, as I said in Friday’s post, I’m expecting some “Down Time” – of undetermined length – probably starting tomorrow morning. With that in mind, it occurred to me that a nice “waiting room” type post – complete with magazines to peruse and Muzak to listen to – might be a good thing…
