VR kicks ass!

So there I was, happily going about my life, when suddenly...
... I remembered Zine. I think it was being in the library, and suddenly seeing the initials 'WLW' as a classmark.

A quick Google search leads me here. My posts on Teletext p142 have been kept for posterity! Reading them back to myself is like an insane Charlie Kaufman-esque film about a 15 year old girl I nearly was.

I was Girl On The Oatmeal Box. I hung around for a while, then I discovered the internet, where posts were guaranteed to be displayed and I could be judged far more harshly than ever before.

Hello to you all. It's good to be sort-of-back. Seven years have passed and I don't expect anybody to remember me, or anybody from the days of Teletext p142 to even be around. But if you are... I have 7 years worth of news to catch up on, so please do fill me in!

Girl On The Oatmeal Box- still fighting her way out of a yawning chasm since 1986.

Well, um, hello.
Uh, 'Zine's only on Digital (+online) now, after a near-death experience. Think of it as a kind of life support. It's Terri Schiavo, but cuter.
A lot of the old names are here on VR or not far from VR's grasp.
Now, I pass you over to Someone With More Experience.

I dont have more experience, but what I lack in experience, I make up with little chicks

Would you like some chicks? They're not expensive. They're going cheep

Zoë: Big damn heroes, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

I remember her too.

Also: f*ck all to do with the thread, but I went to Uni with the girl from the  1980s Bisto adverts  

As usual, i read that all wrong and thought you had actually been out with the girl from the bisto adverts and made hot gravy with her!
