After mum posts my blog, she remembers things!!
This time she wanted to comment on the horrific things that have been happening in France. She told me about 9/11 when she was living in Connecticut. She was hosting msn gaming site Scrabble Tournaments (as Tricki_Wu) and her tournies were fun tournies on Tuesdays. She hummed and hawed as to whether to hold the tourney, but after xchanging messages with others, she decided to hold it. She got over 40 contestants (the most she usually got were 20-25) and several of these were people who normally did not play in tourneys -- including one person she had known for ages online. He (and several others) commented that they decided to come and play because the news all day had been so depressing, and they just wanted to "get away" from it for a couple of hours. So, although all of these terrorist thingies are so awful, we as furry friends need to luv on our peeps and let them know that (especially here in Blogville) we are all good buddies.
