    Don’t know if I’m ‘touched’ by madness, or have been belted over the head with it!
    But it would be lovely to sit with you for a while! ;)

      Haha, well, maybe not touched… belted over the head with a brick perhaps ;)

        Oh dear . . . we may have started something here! Bricks, bats, run over with a truck perhaps? ;)
        Seriously though, it was really wonderful to see your lovely self, thankyou for being so brave and posting that lovely photo. From all your replies, it looks like you may need a larger location for this get together of the mad chosen few – and isn’t that just perfect?!!

    Meh. My therapist says I’m getting better, but the voices in my head think that she’s crazy. Scooch over. :)

    Love from a warm summer evening in Bath! Please, will you hold me a space over there with you, at least one in the air next to you — I qualify as mental and mad, but it is good to know I have a place one your pedestal of madness! 8-)

    And, bye the way, I love the photo, and your hair looks even better now that it’s a deeper pink! Thank you for letting me see!

      Thank you! I much prefer it, it’s a lovely reddish pink indoors, and bright pink outside in the sun!

      It was a fabulous place to sit! The rain held off just long enough for a few photos. And I’d never say no to a hot chocolate ;)

    It’s a picture of you! You’re so pretty.

      Aw, thanks April! It’s still only half of me… the way it’s going, people are going to be convinced I only have a half a body.

    This photo is playing with my head :P

    Whenever I saw your face in previous photos, I thought of you as ‘beautiful’ and ‘sexy’. In this photo, the bangs, the round shape, the metal not showing much, makes me think of ‘cute’ more :P
    That is supposed to be a compliment. Your face looks much younger than your age. The rest of you doesn’t look the same age as your face though, so it’s confusing :P

    But regardless, you look so totally cool! I’d love to sit and chat with you :)

    • halfwaybetweenthegutter

      Haha! I get told I look far younger than my age all the time. I still have to show ID to buy cigarettes, and I’ve been old enough to buy them for almost a decade! By contrast, the rest of my body has taken a bit of a battering over the years and I think it looks older than the rest of me. It’s weird someone agrees!

      I get called ‘cute’ a lot too, it’s weird for me to accept it but heck, thank you anyway for the compiment! I’ll manage to accept one, one day. I much prefer cute to sexy anyway, I find cuteness much more attractive in others.

      And thank you for the offer of a sit, I’d certainly never say so to a chat :)

        “And thank you for the offer of a sit, I’d certainly never say so to a chat” – I’m not sure what you mean. Did you mean that you’d certainly never say thanks to a chat? Or is that a typo and so = no?

        Ah, sexy is cool, but I prefer hot if we’re really going to comment on sex appeal. Otherwise beautiful, pretty and cute are of course the most preferred and the most used (okay, not ‘beautiful’ so much)!

          Whoops sorry, I meant “I’d never say no” – typo :p

          I suppose I don’t really ‘get’ the whole sexy/hot thing. I do LOVE being called pretty though, it’s a lovely compliment.

    With my red hair i’d be mad not to sit down next to you – and pass you a piece of friendship cake (it’s making its rounds here in Sheffield).

    I’m right there with you! Oh, and I brought you a lemon ice – I hope you like lemon ice. So what has madness brought to you today? Me? A sink hole.

    • halfwaybetweenthegutter

      July 2, 2012 at 1:14 pm

      Madness hasn’t brought me much yet, although there’s still plenty of time. I’m sure it’ll bring something. I can’t say I’ve ever had lemon ice, but it sounds good to me :)

      I’m sorry about the sink hole, and hope you get it sorted soon.

    I think I’ll have a seat! I seemed to be touched by something lately! ;-)

    I wish that I could! I found my way here somehow and read a couple of posts. I’ve always had a livejournal but I was inspired to start a wordpress account that I haven’t quite managed to complete an entry for. It’s there but I’m scared to be so frank.

    Save me a spot! And a few for the voices in my head. The voices and I will bring an assortment of chocolates and some nice cold raspberry lemon ice. You are beautiful and don’t ever let anyone tell you different!

    It’s been a while, hasn’t it? “Have I gone mad?
    I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”
    -Quote from the most recent Alice in Wonderland.
    Anyhow, I completely agree.
    Also, I love your shoes.
    And your hair. I haven’t colored my hair in a whole year so that my hair would be healthy enough to get a perm. (My hair is stick straight and I’d love to have some wave in it)
    ANYWAYS. Again, off track. I think that the number of those who are mad have completely outnumbered those who are not. Should we start a ticket counter?
