On a Wing and a Prayer

Click for a wallpaper I made using this image

First off, thank you to Irene for this beautiful image.
He's the perfect angel to watch over me as I fly the friendly skies tonight.

I'm sure I'll be fine.....or drunk......whichever.
Seriously, thank you so much to everyone for your wishes and pep talks.

I really feel lucky to know such kindness.

I've so much to be thankful for this year, everything and more than last year even.

Of course, I'm thankful for my health and my family and friends. I'm thankful for the orange kitty that sleeps at my feet and the calico one that sleeps on my head. I'm thankful for the Station Wagon because it gets me to see friends, rock out and have fun in the coolest way...with a kickass sound system.

I also can't say enough how thankful I am that this site continues to attract the most wonderfully kind, intelligent, talented and respectful people.

I'm thankful that I've quit smoking, and started playing guitar again.

I'm thankful for Keanu's bass and his belly scar and for his dedication and talent and character....

And for the inspiration he gives me to create, to push my own limits and to try and be the best I can be, every day.

I'm thankful and so very proud to be a fan.

I wish him and all of you an abundance of things to be thankful for in the coming year.

Hiya, Krix. Have still yet to see the final installment of The Matrix. Don't hold it against me. Thanks. I’m giving thanks to every blogger who’s been kind enough to link to my site on their blogroll. As a show of my appreciation I am leaving an excerpt from my glorious NaNoWriMo novel in the comments fields of each and everyone’s blogs. To read the section from my novel in its entirety, grab a box of tissues, click on the link to my site, and let the magic flow. Happy Thanksgiving. Now, on with the excerpt…

Otto had never heard his taste buds speak before. All this time they had been in his mouth and only now he realized that they had their own emotions and language. The whole thing was a little scary, actually. “This is a little scary, actually” Otto said out loud to himself.

“Shut up!” his taste buds yelled back, “We’re tying to figure out what these strange hot dogs taste like.”

*hug* Come back to me safe. ;)

And I'm thankfull that after having a wonky computer & not being able to go on the net most of the evening, I did manage to connect in time to wish you a safe flight! :-)

So: Don't drink too much DURING the flight, because you'll feel even more uncomfortable. But! Get completely sloshed the moment you arrive, because, well, 'arriving' is a good reason for a celebration :-)
And! Try to find a computer, so that you can make at least 1 non-audioblog, for us poor darlings that can't hear them!
*Oh god, reality is sinking in*
Boo-hoo!!! I'll miss you! Sob! :'-(

*Oh dear, now my motherly moment is coming up, too!*
Krix, are you sure you have money-tickets-passport-keys-adressbook-creditcards all packed?
Did you feed Humphrey? Did you water the plants?
Oh! And remember to dress warmly! Wear mittens and a wooly hat! Look out when crossing the street! Don't take candy from strangers!

*blows nose*
Oh well, you'll be fine :-)
Happy thanksgiving to you, and all other people who celebrate it :-)

Bye now! *waves*

PS: The picture is beautiful, Irene!!! :-)

I'm pretty sure I have everything. Unfortunately the black devil hat that Mac knit me has *not* arrived in time so I will have to wear my hoodie hood up.

I'm most concerned about my carry-on bag and if they are going to rifle through it and/or make me check it or leave things behind.

If they try and confiscate wee Neo, you'll be seeing me on the news.

The soundtrack of the flight will be Bret I've decided.

4o minutes until my brother comes to pick me up.

Posted by: krix on November 25, 2003 04:17 PM

Ack, I forgot to tell you to switch off all electricity, heating & gas!!!
Oh! And now there's only 20 minutes left!

*You can do it, babe!*

I'm leaving now, too :-) Bye-bye!

I'm pretty sure krix is gone now *sniff*, but I do want to say to Irene that picture is just gorgeous.

If you're still there krix, have a wonderful trip!

And hi Julie!, I hope your computer mishap did not cause you to lose my email. I sent you the mother of all emails yesterday. You should get through reading it by Christmas! *giggle*

I am probably too late but when you return you will know that I wished you a great trip. Thanx for all you do to help ME get through the day.
Best Wishes,
