Copying and pasting Susan's introduction from floor 39. Susan, please edit as your time permits! Hugs, KTBird

WELCOME to the 40th floor of the 2nd highrise of our clinic! We only have 29 floors to go to reach 69 again!

Well, it really isn't cold here right now but it seems that many parts of the world are still in the throws of winter so let this be a floor to help warm you up with all the red-hotness of a certain Scot.

Thanks for starting the new thread, Katie. We'll just have this be Part Deux, warming things up for another floor.

Here are just a few pictures to start warming things up![

AND NOW.... the original thread.

Being the compassionate person that I am, I can recognize a cry for help when I see one. Having said that, I have decided to start a new support group for those of us with Gerry Addicted Lust Syndrome – from now on, all with Gerry Addicted Lust Syndrome with be known as GALS.

This group is open to all GALS and non-GALS alike who believe they are in serious need of support and guidance as they realize how serious their addiction has become. This is not a support group which advocates traditional intervention, as the failure rate would be astronomical, but merely a group whom you can turn to who share in your addictions or withdrawals, whichever the case may be. Some of the signs that you have GALS include, but are not limited to:

1. You buy every magazine on the rack looking for photos or articles of Gerry and start to get the jitters when there has been no sign of him for weeks.

2. You drive 500 miles to see a Gerry movie.

3. Your significant other (or just someone you're dating) gives you stark reminders they are SOOOO NOT Gerry.

4. Co-workers, friends and/or family start teasing you for your addiction – people can be so cruel...

5. You become addicted to caffeine because you can’t pull yourself away from GALS...."'cause just MAYBE he'll be on Chat tonight."

6. You obsess with much glee, "Gerry has a computer...and he knows how to use it!!!!"

7. You find yourself asking aloud, "Did he REALLY mean what he said about the 3:00 a.m. thing and does he REALLY wear a size 11 shoe?" Then smile broadly.

8. You catch yourself speaking in a Scottish accent for no apparent reason.

9. You change the decor in your bathroom to accommodate your new yellow towels.

10. The "G-Spot" takes on a whole new meaning.

11. You spend days wondering why a Scot would be named "Andre." :huh:

12. You buy “Mrs. Brown” just for the skinny-dipping scene and play that one scene in slow mo and super slow mo, over and over and over again. (Okay, so maybe that was just me.) :D

13. You have a picture of Gerry in your wallet, and refer to him as “your man, Gerry.”

14. You spend your hard-earned cash assigned for other “non-essential” items (phone bill, power bill, etc.) on essential Gerry related items.

15. You go shopping for your “real-life” man and finding yourself thinking, “OMG!!! Gerry would look so :censored: hot in that!!!

16. You have to buy a new hard drive to accommodate all your pics and videos of Gerry.

17. You search through a couple hundred $5.50 DVDs at Wal-Mart because an employee said Dracula 2K might be there.

18. You can't possibly walk past Starbucks without dreaming that maybe... *sighs*

19. You refer to the Gerry wallpaper on your computer as your “happy place.”

20. While looking up at the clouds you SWEAR there's a cloud in the shape of a "G"...funny thing is, the GAL next to you sees the same thing!!!

21. Multiples (Gerrygasms) are an every day occurrence!!!

This list will continue to grow as you tell me your addictions...

Below is a very simple 10-step program to help foster our addiction.

1. You must admit you have GALS. This is so important to further your addiction. Yes, this support group wants to nourish your addiction, not starve it. We are here for you.

2. Come to believe the Great and Powerful Gerry is greater than ourselves and only our visions and/or fantasies can keep us addicted. To truly become addicted, however, one must at one time in ones life made the Gerry Mecca Journey (GMJ) and meet him in person.

3. Make a decision to turn our will and lives over to our addiction to Gerry.

4. Make a searching and fearless immoral inventory of our fantasies of Gerry.

5. Lend your support to those who have GALS, but are yet unable to admit it.

6. Watch every movie (more than once) in which Gerry has a role. To be truly addicted, you must develop a love of all Gerry genres (yes, this includes “Tale of the Mummy” and “Dracula 2000”).

7. Frequently quote lines from Gerry films. Memorize them, use them, replace old phrases with new Gerry lines. This will prove to all your serious commitment to your addiction.

8. Know Gerry’s biography better than you know your own. True GALS will know all Gerry’s trivia. Study it, soak it in, become one with Gerry's biography.

9. Give generously (money folks) to the website which has fostered your addictions and allowed your fantasies to take flight.

10. Convert all who are convertible to this syndrome. This is the true mark of GALS. Do not judge - for your next recruit may be your boss!

As this is a relatively new Syndrome, the above guidelines are subject to editing, amending or scrapping all together as we GALS deem necessary.

The first step to true addiction is to admit you have GALS!! I will begin the group.

"My name is Dr. Em and I have GALS."

All are welcome to join in our group. GALS, we must not suffer in silence!!! We now have a voice!!! Let it be heard!

*Disclaimer: We GALS appreciate not only Gerry’s royal hotness for which there is no rival, we indeed, also recognize his abundance of talent, soul, passion, spirit, sense of style and humor, sincerity...can I stop now? Our addictions are all-encompassing and we embrace Gerry EVERY WHICH WAY WE CAN!!!*

To Cleobethra for our “Warning Label.”

Just wanted to fly-by wishing everyone a great Friday!

Joanna, I read your description of the art work you do with the roses. Could you post a couple of pictures? I'm buying a new house and may need art....maybe, I haven't started house hunting yet!

Cheers!!

Wow I'm early. Wahoo. Happy Friday Ladies. I'm doing my Scrap Mania tonight so that should be fun.

For those who need a bit of light fun check out this video. Those greedy little squirrels and chipmunks. So cute... Was this posted? I just got an email w/this in it but it looks familiar.

Hi ladies. I just wanted to report that I was asked by a local veterinary hospital for an interview! I do not mind working in that setting as long as it's not overly stressful, and some clinics aren't. Moreover, the Sam Ash Music interview is slated for tomorrow morning AND Perricone's HR manager will return to her desk on Tuesday. I am hoping so hard for that job...but I'm also waiting for my Starbucks hours. The scheduling manager, Amy, apparently doesn't know how to use a phone.

I DO have a raging UTI, but Cipro and Uristat are Godsends. I just thought I'd laud their merits!

My sister feels fine, but she is anxious for the results of the biopsy...and she won't hear anything for at least another week. Please continue to keep her and my aunt, who'll be admitted to the hospital on Tuesday, in your prayers and thoughts.

I need to tidy up around here and then buy some groceries. I'm so hungry and there's nothing in my kitchen...thanks to yesterday's physical agony. Okay...onward and upward!

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - WELL THE REST OF 2008

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

If you can't eat it or hump it.

Piss on it and walk away

:lmao:

It's great to start the day laughing. Thanks for the smiles today ladies! :wave:

Y'all were discussing pets in the last thread. When my hubby and I met oh so many years ago, we each owned a cockatiel. Since then, we've never been without at least one. We even had one that required insulin shots twice a day for a couple of years. That was when I truly realized what great guy I had married when he took on that task for me. Eeks. :scared: The two that we have now are siblings (rumor has it they are brothers but we aren't entirely sure :lol: ) They greet us every morning and sing and chatter throughout the day. While they can be a bit boisterous when we are on the phone, I wouldn't have it any other way. We also share the zoo with three dogs. It's a bit chaotic when they all start creating noise at once but I have to admit, I don't mind that either. They are each an important part of our family.

Good luck with the interview, Christine.

:hugs: and :wave: :wave: to all!

I wish that Gerry would rent himself out to those of us in physical pain (such as the back pain that accompanies UTIs). I'd bet he'd give great...uh...great...um...massage.

(What did you THINK I was going to say? EH??? You ladies, with your minds in the gutter all the time! The eye of God is upon you, and you ought to be ashamed of yourselves!)

Kidding, kidding. Everyone knows that I've since moved into the gutter and rented a duplex there.

I use ULead GIF Animator and Adobe Image Ready to make GIF's. Most likely the reason you have the Geo Videos scrolling across is because you're using a trial version of the software. They usually do stuff like that when you're 'trying out' the software.

I would suggest using GIF Animator first. It's a little easier to navigate. Most times I use Image Ready first, if for nothing more than it's easier to crop and select the image size. Then, once I'm finished, I then pull it into GIF Animator to further reduce the file size. The most difficult part of making GIF's (for me, anyway) is getting the files converted to something I can make a GIF out of. ;)

:wave: Suzie,

This computer does not 'do' pics yet. There is somthing wrong with the tower!!! Yep, that's how old this thing is. And noisey, you don't want to know. I should be getting a new one in March! I think my kids are going to help me get one for my Birthday on the 2nd. And since it is a Sunday, my Suzy and I will go looking. Yay!!!! Then I will learn all the procedures of how to put pics on and designs too!!! I'll get a few roses ready for the pics if you tell me what color you like. That is for anyone, and size of frame is important too. And Suzie, that's open for anytime. I also do other flowers. I was working on a Bird of Paradise and couldn't find a long frame I liked. I finally did find one and the flowers broke and now I have to start over again. Labor of Love, like Gerry's statuette will be.

Gotta go back to homework, break over, Love and Hugs, Jo :archie:

:wave: I wish you much, much, much luck too!!! Jobs are hard to get right now. My lovely Grandaughter is 20, in college full time and can't find a job either. It's the times. I will pray for you when I pray for Dana.

Love and Hugs, Jo

P.S. Thanks to Angel Girl for all the help in getting my mopboy siggy(?)!!!!!! I am so thrilled, you'd think I won the lotto! HAH!

:wave: This message is for Angel Gal specifically! I DID IT!!!!! Thanks to you, you wonderful GAL! I feel like I won the lotto and I am telling everyone that. I am so grateful for the very instructional help from YOU. When we all get to know each other better and we can exchange phone numbers, I'll give you mine and I will talk to you and ask you what color roses you like and make you a framed sculpture of that color rose. I eventually want to make a rose for everyone that has been good to me and taken me into this cozy, Gerry Addicted Lust Syndrome nest!!! I am so grateful to be able to come here and talk about Gerry without being told I'm crazy. Or get looks like, Oh, Brother, Him, again!!! I can't help it!!! Gerry does that to me. And I am proud of Him!!!

Well, break over, back to homework, Love and Hugs AngelGal and ALL GALS and PALS. :wub: Jo

Sue,

I will be posting pics as soon as I get the new 'puter. Then as I told AngelGal, I want eventually, to make a rose for all the GALS and, yes, even the PALS, if they want one. It of course will take some time to make all the ones I want to make for all the wonderful people that have welcomed me into this cozy place. But, I will do it. Got time this summer and I will watch for sales on frames to put the roses on. I'm not taking a class this summer. Instead, I am going to work on the roses and Gerry's statuette.

Break over, back to homework, Love and Hugs to All, Jo

Hi Everyone. Jo, Pilar Suzie I have not been feeling well today I think its just because I got NO sleep at all last night. I think I got too hot and it was not from Gerry Darn it anyway. it was the weather . I had the comforter on me and it was warm out and now I feel like I am getting sinus something. Oh well, what else is new.?

I watched DF and the Jury today and stayed in bed and now I am up and about but still am so tired. I guess after I call Lady Yvonne tonight I will take 2 tylenol pm that helps me sleep but I won't take them all the time.

Moonlight is on first though can't miss that.

I hope everyone has a good night and I mean that. Its awful when you don't sleep and it messes with my fibro when I don't sleep. love ya'll Betts Raina Snow

Jo, that will be quite an undertaking dear....but I would love one of your beautiful flowers and would be happy to pay for the frame and material and such .... :thankyou: I look forward to seeing a picture of them when you get your new computer...but I'm really dying to see this statue of Gerry!!!!!!!!

Betts, you know I'm praying for you...guess what? Just this afternoon, since I've emailed you, I'm sitting here at my desk and I've started getting a sore throat :bleh2: (and I have company coming for dinner tomorrow... :tantrum:)

He is such a sweetheart - and he said at the PSILY premiere that he was in love with her. I wish them every happiness in the world. I'd better go over to the JDM site and extend my well-wishes there too.
