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 will 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."
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.) Posted Image
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!!!*

I'm first! Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Hi everyone! We had a really busy weekend here with the local Highland Games on Saturday, which was a lot of fun. We worked for a few hours in the booth for the Harp & Shamrock Society of Texas, said hello at Clan Gunn's booth, and enjoyed the food and entertainment. I was disappointed that my other clan, Clan Keith, wasn't there.

The Games continued today, we didn't go. We were shopping for a new microwave. Not nearly as exciting, but our old one bit the dust after 11 years. It's built-in, so we had to find one of the exact dimensions so it will fit in the hole. The new microwave is being delivered on Thursday and will be installed later. The installer will call us to set up a time.

Hugs to all!

Hello my darlings! Spring is definitely in the air...as is the pollen, and my allergies! Oy vey! LOL I registered for classes today, both summer and fall sessions. 7 classes between 5/20 and the beginning of December. *chants* I can finish. I can finish.

The Meester survived his week with the genetic material donor and is snuggly entrenched back at my side. The poor kid's exhausted, and I'm really hoping that he'll be able to have his vacays to himself instead of having to go hang out with...ahem...daddy.

Finally, I'm gonna go through withdrawal when this promo tour is over. Sooooooooooo much new Gerry juice!

Much love,

Amy

EM...Why do you think I watch/listen to the one hour interview on set of B&G over and over again. I miss his accent and it is more prevalent in that interview. Leaves me wishing he were not losing it.

Two explosions at finish line of Boston Marathon - and one at JFK Library and Museum. So far, two dead and over 20 people injured. Suspected terrorist attacks. Investigating as such.

Posted Imageeveryone! As some of you know, we lost one of our dogs recently. She was 15 years old, and had an apparent stroke. We didn't plan on getting another dog until perhaps in the fall, but life has a way of bringing the unexpected. Some of you also may remember that I have a particular fondness for Dachshunds, and was really devastated when my little Rocky died unexpectedly at age 6 back in 2007. That makes what happened this past week even more significant to me. My daughter, Erin, called on Wednesday night to tell me that one of her friends had rescued a puppy from the middle of a very busy street. He had no collar. She took him home and saw that he was filthy and covered in fleas and ticks. She took him to a vet where he was dipped for the fleas and ticks and given a rabies shot. The vet said she thinks he's a Dachshund/Jack Russell mix about 6 months old. Erin's friend already has a dog and works full-time, so she didn't feel that she could keep him. To make a long story short, say hello to our newest furbaby, "Luther." Our rat terrier, Archie, already likes him, but the cats aren't too thrilled.

Posted Image

Luther's fitting into our household well, and is eager to please us. It's clear that no one tried to potty train him or teach him to walk on a leash, but he's good in his crate. When leashed to go outside, he puts on the brakes and sits or lays down, but I'm sure he'll learn. From the fleas and ticks, and lack of any training, I'll bet whoever had him just left outside all the time, although someone did teach him to fetch. Archie is getting a sorely needed potty refresher course too.

Blue Jean, regarding the explosions in Boston, I just can't believe what I'm seeing in this world anymore. People have just lost their minds! Praying for all those who were killed or injured and their families.

Bonnie...I was watching the news when the first report came on TV with videos. I couldn't believe it. It was unreal to me. I was astounded by how many people ran to help the victims as the second bomb went off. What heroes! I saw two army men in uniform immediately jump in to remove the fence. They said later that it was like a war zone with body parts blown off. Children were seriously injured and one 8 yr. old boy died. What is happening in this world. How sick are people to do this. Just saddens me to no end. No one is safe anymore. It is just a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Elissa...Do you believe that things sometimes happen for a reason. Erin's friend found a dog that needed help and what better timing for him and you. It was meant to be. He is a cutie pie and I know Luther will be a perfect fit for your family. He is one lucky dog!

Just dropping in to say hi to everyone - I seem to get here so infrequently anymore (my bad)!!

Elissa your new fur baby is adorable, and obviously he was meant to be part of your family. We lost the younger (at nearly 16 years old) of our 2 cats in February when suddenly all her organs shut down. My husband really wanted to get another cat, but not a kitten, so I let him go to the shelter and pick one. She is about 4 or 5 years old, named Willow. We had seen her picture on line and she is a beauty (a tiny Bengal - they are usually much larger), but he let her beauty charm him and didn't pay attention to the fact that she wanted nothing to do with humans. So we've had her now for 2 weeks and I've seen a flash of her about 3 times as she made the mad dash from hiding in the bedroom to hiding in the foyer downstairs. But David tells me progress is being made - she is now walking instead of flying between hiding places (I had taken to calling her Willow Walenda - as in the Flying Walendas). On Tuesday she actually stopped on her way between bedroom and downstairs and let him talk to her for a minute, and yesterday he said he sat on the stairs and talked to her while she sat in a box in the foyer and she didn't move away for a couple of minutes. So maybe she will very slowly grace us with her presence. We would love nothing more than to show her love and affection, if she would allow it. At least there is no issue with her and our old cat - I don't think he even realizes there is another cat in the house yet.

Just stopping in to say hello. I know that some of you are getting geared up for the convention in June. As I have for the past several years, I'll be joining you via the virtual con. I love reading about everyone's pets. It's amazing how much they come to mean to us. My cat and I seem to be joined at the hip. That little fur ball follows me everywhere throughout the house. And when he sees or senses that I am not feeling well-he's right there beside me!

It's a shame that the gorgeous Spring weather in some regions is causing severe allergies for some folks. Our weather here has been glorious, but the allergy symptoms are such a pain!

I've posted some updates in my prayer request thread if you want to know what's going on with me, so I won't clutter this thread with personal stuff. Take care everyone!

He he he...genetic material donor... Posted Image

Well, I've been known to call him other, more...interesting...things. Posted Image I just can't bring myself to call him the Meester's father, because he's just not doing anything to fill that role. Hells, Gerry could prolly do more for my kid in one day than Capt. Dumbass (my go to for the ex) has done in 10 years.

Anyway....LOL

I could use some hugs and good thoughts for the next few weeks. Getting laid off June 1st, just found out that one of the temp workers that I helped train got my job (she was made a permanent employee two days after I was laid off...), and I might be getting a divorce. At least I have Con to look forward to!

Now that sucks!! Sometimes life has a way of hitting us right between the eyes. Something smells big time with that temp getting your job. Lay-offs are usually to cut back. Could be this temp is getting a smaller salary than you were, so there is your company savings. Hope you can work things out in your personal life. Have fun at the Con anyway. Hugs and my thoughts go with you.
