Am I allowed to talk about Doctor Who
‘I am allowed to appear like I’m listening whenever Doctor Who’ enters the conversation. 😉
Yes and any time you wanna start pretending is fine. Can’t believe I went to the comic book store with you today and this is still your attitude, I saw you looking at that K9 doll.
I love the comic book store! Still don’t know what that Star Trek furry thing is though…
It’s a Tribble… and you shouldn’t even be in there if you don’t know what a Tribble is!!!
I’ve just watched a clip about tribbles. My evening is no better for it.
You saw Into Darkness right? Well Kirk wouldn’t be alive without Tribbles.
Also check out ‘The Trouble with Tribbles’ from TOS and ‘Trials and Tribulations’ from Deep Space Nine.
They really are. Maybe I’ll start talking about ST and DW. Maybe SW as well. Anything else you wanna stop.
Imagine my expression…
Probably the same as mine when you won’t let me express myself. 🙂
I’ve just got this image of you screaming in The Bear ‘let me express myself woman!!’
I may never scream it allowed but be assured it’s being screamed in my head.
Why do I have the Stewie voice in my head when I hear you saying it too?
I dunno but I’ve been sneezing all day and I can not get sick right now.
There’s Kendra’s birthday, and the baby shower, and with this move, I cannot get sick right now…
I have to finish typing this… typing this… eugh
Good affirmations. I hope everything is OK ((Hugs))
Hi lovely – everything’s good thanks! I’ve missed so many of your posts – I need to catch up!
I am allowed to say this is awesome!
Beautiful. Thank you for the reminder. By the way, I love the ‘tiff’ with your friend above. I have never had a friend I could talk to like that.
Haha! We’ve been friends for so long now there isn’t much that we can say to each other to offend – I love the banter!
I am not allowed…right now…I will some time when I learn to live with healthier boundaries.
I am not allowed to hurt my loved ones with my poor judgement.
I am not allowed to be allowed to just run my life down.
I wish you all the best – I hope things get better for you soon!
Thank you Suzie
Great stuff 8)
I am allowed to do any damn thing I want. I love it. It’s the only way to live your life ………. you’re good Suzie! Very good.
Thank you my lovely! I love your attitude in your posts – always inspiring!
I am allowed to say that Suzie was like my first Blogger Crush. (I’m good now, just so you know.) Also I am allowed to say . . . I am still jealous of her talent at times.
Love you Suzie!
Aww thanks Ron! I thought I had offended you – I haven’t heard from you in ages! Hope you’re doing well!
Typing isn’t my best thing these days. One reason for my reduction in posts. But I do read. 🙂 And was going to ask who that knockout in the dark dress in that wedding picture was. I think standing to your mother’s actual right hand side. She had the most awesome hair.
Reblogged this on Rachel writes… and commented:
I needed this today. Sometimes I wait too long to allow myself to feel.
Thanks so much for reblogging Rachel – I’m glad it was useful for you!
Yes, you are allowed.
Yes I am! And so are you! Hope you’re doing well!
Love this 🙂
Thanks my lovely!
Great post, but the Doctor Who discussion in the comments had me rolling.
You should see us after a drink, particularly when we’re armed with microphones! I enjoy the banter – if I want to wind him up all I have to do is to mention my annoyance with Doctor Who and then just sit back and watch him rant. If I really want to wind him up I simply need to write this:
This made my day, Suzie! A perfect manifesto for moving out of parental house
I am allowed, like many of the others, to be very amused by the earlier argument in the comments.
Haha! I enjoy the banter – lots of our conversations are very much like this if we’ve had a drink or two…
Reblogged this on My Own little world of random thinking.
Great list Suzie, a lot of those statements remind me of my first long-term boyfriend who did not allow me to do those things. Polly81 – are you using DW as an abbreviation for Doctor Who or for Discworld?
I’m assuming that it’s Doctor Who – I’ve never known him mention Disc World before, but stranger things have happened. You never know, it could stand for anything – Disney World, dog whisperer, Dark Wing Duck… Hours of fun!
I’m sorry you had to deal with that with your ex – I’ve been there and it isn’t nice…
Such a good reminder. Thanks, Suzie!
Thanks Kaela! So glad to see you back here – it’s been ages!
Are you a loud talker?
