Gerry Addicted Lust Syndrom (GALS).........Continued

Recommended Posts

GALS, WELCOME to the 11th Floor of the Support Center's 3rd Highrise!

Just 58 more floors to go to reach 69 again!

:welcome1:TO 2015

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.) :p

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 #1! If I were in a better mood, I'd streak, but the last few days haven't been the best. I caught Erin's cold, and have been miserable since the first. I also received the gut-wrenching news that our pastor suffered a fatal heart attack while out jogging in his neighborhood on the afternoon of the 1st. He was a wonderful man and the best pastor I ever had. He was only in his early 60s; had a wife and two grown sons and two grandsons. His funeral service is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Prayers for the family would be appreciated. Pastor DeVries will be sorely missed.

Well darn Elissa. This was not a happy start to your New Year! So sorry to hear about your Pastor! My sympathy goes to both his personal family and his church family.

Also I am so sorry Elissa and Sue are both ill! Sending hugs to you both for being sickies and additional hugs to Elissa for being so sad right now. :comfort:

Well now, this is not a good start to the New Year. I'm so sorry to hear about your Pastor, Elissa. Sudden deaths are so hard to accept. My sympathy to you and your friends from your church. Sounds like he was taking care of himself too with jogging. It is a reminder for all of us to appreciate every day we have. Prayers going out for the family.

Elissa and Sue, sorry to hear you are both battling colds right now.

Diana, I will take your advice about vitamin C.

Suzie, thanks for starting the new floor!

Good morning, Gals........

Elissa, I am sorry about your Pastor's unexpected death. So sad. I'm sure he will be sorely missed by his congregation and his family. I will pray for peace for all. And healing for you and Sue! The colds, flu, etc. have really hit hard.

I hope you can just rest and take it easy.

Hugs

Oh Elissa, I'm so sorry about your Pastor ... I must have missed that yesterday in my misery of coughing while trying to read... I will keep his family and church family in my prayers Elissa.

Good to know Diana!!!! I will start on the Vitamin C NOW!!! My kitchen is suppose to start renovation this next Friday and I essentially have to move everything out of it.... :bleh: ..I wasn't looking forward to this before I got sick...lol....ah well, I will be very pleased (please God) with the finished results though.

hugs to all my sisters!!!

love,

Sue

So sad news about your pastor, Elissa. Pray for healing for his family and your church.

Diana, I see your beginning to make your own siggies. Very nice! Keep up the good work. I make my siggies from all the free sites on the internet. I use several sites sometimes to finish. I learned a lot about making graphic from the generous GALS here. You will too

I thought my 30 year old daughter was going to be a pharmacist after high school. She worked as a pharmacy tech all through high school. But she took a different direction after graduating and went to nursing school at the hospital where I worked. She is an Oncology Nurse at the same hospital.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and enjoying a bright New Year!

Hugs to all,

Diane

Thanks Diane.....

Maybe you could give me some info on those sites you use for siggies...when you have time.

My time is going to be limited as of Mon AM...I start back teaching after being off since June, excited but little nervous. I do pharmacist relief work on weekends & teach math during the week. Took a little break from teaching for the last 7 months.

Congrats on your daughter's career....nice!!!

Diana

P.S. I too am sorry Elissa about the news of your pastor. Praying for comfort for his family & the church.

Sorry to hear folks have gotten sick. :sick: I hope you all are feeling better soon. Drink lots of water and put your feet up to rest. Gentle hugs.

Elissa, I'm so very sorry to hear about your pastor. What a terrible shock for his family and your church. My heart goes out to you all.

Love to the fanmily,

:thankyou: everyone, for the words of sympathy and comfort, and prayers. It was a rough time, but we got through the funeral. Our Church will make it through all of this.

We're all feeling better here. Our colds and Bill's flu are gone. Erin's Spring semester began today. Actually, Friday, because she had to go to a workshop for one of her tutoring center jobs. Since we weren't able to have our nice New Year's Day dinner because we were all sick, I'm going to make a nice dinner on the Martin Luther King holiday and invite Erin's boyfriend over. We had to univite him for New Year's Day, telling him we would have a nice dinner another day.

Glad you're feeling better Elissa.....

Well, a week after New Year's the work started on my kitchen redo and so not only did I have to pack up all of the Christmas stuff but I had to pack up all of my kitchen....but the cabinets are done and I'm really happy with the way they turned out.

Next week the electrician will be here to install LED lighting underneath and over the cabinets and then the granite and tile guys will get to work. At least I got to put everything back in my cabinets!!! I was looking like I could be on that show "Hoarders"....

hugs to all my sisters!

love,

Sue

That's beautiful, Sue! I envy you your big kitchen! Mine is so small, and the way our house is built, there's just no way to enlarge it.

Sue, your kitchen is gorgeous. I spend as little time as possible in mine, so it's hardly worth it to redo it. ( But I'd love to anyway!)

Thank you Bonnie and Suzie :p . Suz, since mine is open to my family room where I do spend a lot of time and ever since I bought the house the old cabinets had bothered me so it was high up on my priority list. I'm glad that I waited and didn't sign any contract for the granite though. I didn't like the granite either but now with the new cabinets I like the contrast between the black and white; so I've decided to just have the backsplash done in tumbled stone tiles and the granite slabs refinished....hopefully it will save me some money.

Fabulous look to that kitchen, Sue! Have many years of enjoyment in that room. The rest of the work will be icing on the cake.

Love your new dream kitchen, Sue! I know you are enjoying it now. Beautiful cabinet work.

A rainy dreary Sunday here all day today but at least it warmed up a bit. Nice quiet day, no visits from the 6 grandkids. They are such a joy to me and keep me going. Mostly keeping them from getting into what they shouldn't. Glad the youngest toddler can now climb up and down the steps at her home with me behind her and not having to lift her up. Hard on the old back.

My oldest son's 7 year old out of the blue cut off her own long hair 4 inches in back because a friend told her it would make her hair grow faster. Her mommy evened it up but now her long blonde locks are gone. She is still cute as a bug, though. I will have to remember to be careful what I say to her.

Hope your Sunday was good.

Hugs to y'all,

Diane

Thank you Kathy and Diane~

It's dreary here as well...but NO RAIN....and we so need it. :gah: Yesterday my dear niece Shannon treated me and my sister in law Sharon to a spa visit. She had sent us cards at Christmas telling us that because we were nicer than naughty this past year Santa was rewarding us...lol. So the three of us yesterday had wonderful facials and massages....it was soooooo nice. I'm in my 60's and that was my very first full body massage....that could be addicting!!

Tomorrow I'll have both of my boys for the day so I best rest up this evening. Diane, I am in awe of you and your grandmotherly skills....two wear me out...LOL.

love and hugs to all.

Funny you should mention rain, Sue. It's pouring down rain right now. We've gotten so much rain lately, the grass is almost knee-deep in the back yard. Our yardman is overdue on mowing the lawn. We're gonna have to call him. Other places get snow this time of year, we get rain!
