Absent friends

It's good to see (or rather read) my old blogging buddy Alison fighting the good fight over at Tim Worstall's post on the yawn-o-thon Daily Mail versus the professionally outraged homophobo-heresy hunters.

I've never met her, and we disagree on many things, but she's got a good heart and I'm sure she's worth having around when it all kicks off.

Bisous a toi, j'espere que tout va bien.

Thanks : D How odd. Saw your comment at N.O and thought I'd stop by and say hello. I think it will all kick off sooner or later so you better come find me!!

Actually I was thinking about you the other day when I realised all the times we disagreed. My opinion has hugely shifted in the last few months and has kind of rounded out more? Except about monarchy :P

Bisous a toi aussi xxxx

I'm at home with swine flu actually but I refused to take that tamiflu shite because i was scared it was all a scam and would make it worse. I googled it)

Yes, I'm a secret admirer too.

Swine flu, huh? I hope you're getting over it. I think you're better off not taking tamiflu, I think it's banned in a number of countries, and don't you dare take the vaccination!

I came late to that comment thread, not being inclined to get involved, until some tosser called in the police (which I note below), which was disappointing, as it would have seemed a trip down memory lane to do a bit of tag team comment posting on your side.

Good to hear your opinions have shifted - only because it means you are still open to new ideas, and are prepared to re-examine previously held views, rather than sticking to one view and refusing to consider anything that contradicts it (although I can't guess whether your opinion shift has taken you further or nearer to myself!) We should always make our opinions subordinate to the truth, as we know it.

James: secret no more - the mysterious Alison has bewitched you too! I guess the clincher between us will be her choice of footwear!
