Life is bonza, mate!!!
« on: September 27, 2006, 11:26:43 PM »
It doesn't get much better than this.

Spring has well and truly sprung, the smell of new growth and flowers and bushfire smoke permeates the air.
The footy finals are on this weekend.
Melia arrives in Sydney on Sunday.
Melia, Matty and I are gonna meet up for some fun and banter.
My head is in a good space, thanks to some help from my shrink.
My liver is working well after 3 months of giving me grief.
I've not had diarrhoea for 7 days.

And, to top it all off, today I had the best blood test results for 2 years. My cd4% at 22 is as high as I can remember, and for the first time in 2 years I have an undetectable viral load.

I am sooooooooo bloody happy I run the risk of carking it from overjoy.   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Careful when you go out with Matty!!  The phrase BOTTOMS UP means something TOTALLY different!!

LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A

Hey Steve,

FAN DAMN TASTIC! That is some of the best news I have heard in a while and rest assured it is very much needed and welcomed here.

I hope you, Melia and Matty have a bang up time. Enjoy the spring and the wonders it always brings.

 :-* :-* :-* and (((HUGS))) for you and your bonza life, Steve!
You'll be getting them for real in a couple of weeks...
And yes, take the Friday off! Take the Friday off!

I'll buy the first round at the pub. ;)

Too bloody right you will Mr Damned...cos with Mr and Miss Lightweight with you for company, the first round will probably be the only one that includes alcohol for everyone! :P

And Cubbybear: If I make it to Melbourne for a few days, I'll be in touch! ;)
