Greetings, fellow Earthlings; I am honoured to have joined the ranks of "those who really KNOW" or do they I ask myself (well, someones got to and up till now it's been me.) It's time to change all that as I seem to have discovered an alternative universe that I always suspected existed!
Originally from Birmingham, but you could say I've been around a bit: Middle East, Africa, Pakistan, Greece; was living in Angoulême, South West France.Update: now in Co.Sligo, Ireland
Some of the other parts of hootoo you are likely to bump into us are:
- Writing for our newspaper the The Post, we write the Hootoo Home of Today
- Admiring the brilliant cartoons of Spimcoot
- and do say hi to Wowbagger
- If you need to know what Baby Doctors get up to say hello to Z
- He can also be found trying to catch this ..
- I can't too fast myself, which is why I'm quite often over at De Myelin Nation along with lots of others, do come and say hello, we don't bite (very often!)
- Hey I made it, despite everything - Survivor's Group
oh yes, I really DO make cheese boxes; if you ask me nicely I might tell you all about them!
Some of my favourite Smileys; now I've discovered how to do them! It's SO EASY!! If I can do it, anybody can!!
And Yoda's :
And DO PLEASE go and give the skankiest on here a huge (you can say I sent you ).
And we say: War doesn't determine who is right, war deterines who is left.

My last post on my Journal got yikesed.
I absolutely did not say anything racist, homophobic, ageist, sexist, offensive, derogatory, intended to disturb the community etc...I would think that 'you lot' know me better than that.
A1l i can imagine is that, in the course of a really quite personal response to Lady P, regarding the RL situation between me & p; i used the Dreaded Asterixes to lighten the tone, could be seen as 'walk' 'work' 'wink'.....or the Word that dare not squeak its name?
So,shall we transfer to another thread; no doubt i will say something naughty here too; more details via email if you wish.

Halloween Trick or Treat?
30 October 2009.
Most Important, for any of 'you lot' who may not be subscribed to the Announcements Page, please read this link, quick.
There seems to be a new sign-in system looming, i can't really work it out *but* seems unless we do, any previous stuff we have put on BBC sites including h2g2 could get lost into outer space internet.
As per usual, the Announcement thread is closed instantly the announcement is made. So no comments via that, there's a link to another BBC site though.
I feel a sense of doom, despite them doing their best to reassure us that h2g2 itself is healthy...if we can't sign in, how the hell do we access it? particularly difficult if your email has changed, as mine has, & am also subscribed to other BBC sites.
Ah well, i guess facebook will do well out of this latest move...

So; i reckon it's time for an ewe (oops, i mean New!) EYE thread; since there seems some confusion between which EYE thread is the current one...so please abandon ship & move here, spread the word!
So; here i am if you want to say hello "you lot" & bring me up to date with what's going on in your lives etc. Tried to do this last night, but hootoo was down
Here in 'sunny intervals with showers' Eyeland, life is just pretty well grand; i feel truly blessed to be living on a lovely farm, with lovely Yoda now retrieved from France, along with Edda , Fritz and of course, the unbelievably wonderful hooman, P.
Today is August 5, 2009, a fairly typical day...
6a.m: wake 'cos it's dawn, but go back to sleep, Yoda!
8a.m: Finally get up, feed ; have home made blackcurrant hot drink outside & watch the second set of swallows this year feeding hungry baby birds.
8.30a.m: P gets up, after etc, he gets his fix & we discuss what to do today, weather seems to be set to 'middling nice', meaning lots of both Solar & Wind power, so he does washing machine, i hoover, he then goes on computer, i potter around being good little Haûsfrau!
9:30 ish, is 2nd breakfast time, cats have meanwhile been basking in the sun, hunting down small creautures to torment (unsucessfully!)
P has counted , continued to hack the jungle back to manageable height, stockpiled wood....etc. so we decide to go into town.
Town being a rather tiny one, mainly composed of pubs & not muchly changed for centuries.
It's a nice place,very 'user friendly'! So: updates please on where 'you lot'; my lovely fiends are living; how does it compare, what are the pluses & minuses? If money/career/family obligations etc were *not* a consideration; would you choose to stay where you are, or go elsewhere, roam the world or what?
All invited here by the way for my birthday week (Sept 23), emaii me at my zendevil gmail addy please!
to you all.

Sunday 16 March, Angoulême, France.
We Did It!!!
The Green Party, now allied with the Socialists in general, have had what is being quoted as a "historic" victory here today in France & yours truly played a small part in this. Sat through hours of meetings, trying very hard to make out what was going on (there are easier ways to learn a foreign language, believe me! )& went out campaigning; made my voice felt as a vegetarian, "handicapped" foreigner, but most importantly, as a Human who isn't gonna just sit here & watch this "mostly harmless" little & every creature on it being destroyed by Big Business.
I am obviously not the only one who feels like this, since even in the capitals of French bling culture, the right wing has been firmly defeated.
This is really, really important, my fiends. If our tiny little rock amongst the s disappears, politics ceases to matter & the fact that at least here, the whole country seems to have finally woken up & voted with their feet to "Carry on with Life, The Universe & Everything" deserves at least a new Jopurnal Entry (& 42 Clash songs! , so abandon EYEBALLS, spread the word & move over here...Yoda is throwing a big Paaaaaaaaaaartyyyyyy!
Jul 7, 2007
7th July 2007.....so that's 07:7:07. Supposedly a date. So seems like a good time to start a new EYE thread.
Given the title, maybe we will invite Posh & Becks ; the winners & losers & ballboys & girls from Wimbledon ....if the weather continues being bizarre, maybe we could have a fight.
Certainly we must have lots of mirror balls & do some serious dancing around our
Party time, you lot! Haul them over from the last Eye thread & drag 'em kicking & screaming from wherever they may !
Terri & Yoda
