  1. Nah babe, you're not the only one! He's got legs, and I love the tight stuff. :drool: Tights/leggings, leathers, those tight jeans that hug his legs... *rowr!* And honey... I could go on for-freakin'-ever on the sublime hotness of Ged! (But it might not be "family friendly", LOL) ...I think any time a band retires or breaks up or changes members in a dramatic way, there's an exodus of fans that just happens. Some will trickle back as they miss posting about the awesomeness or drooling over pics, some never do come back. Maybe it's a sense of loss that's too hard to get past, and it just hurts to see the pics and memories. But there will always be some of us who can't get enough.
  2. You need too include me. Outside of the sexy stuff. :D :geddy: :geddy: :geddy: This isn't to sound mean, but why are you in this thread if you don't think Geddy's hot? Lol Maybe... Ged heat comes in many forms... Hot licks on the bass and general awesomeness is just as valid a heat as the sexy heat. I think theTroutman is here to celebrate Ged in general, coz no one is immune to the GedGreatness! ;)
  3. speechless :drool: Thank you, Angel!
  4. YUM! Who needs a birthday cake when I could just nibble on this all day?!! :drool:
  5. *happy sigh* Just scrolling thru the Hottness that is Geddy... Coz Birthday! LOL *Imagines Ged softly singing 'Happy Birthday' in my ear* :sigh:
  6. I believe the "something sexy"'s name is 'Geddy' :drool: ;) :drool:
  7. :7up: Happiest of Days, you Sweet Thing, you!!!
  8. My personal favourites are crinkle gypsy skirts. Really full ones. I have some 12 yard skirts. 25 yard looks amazing! That's next on my wish list... http://thumbs1.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/m7beyXM98h1KZ9Zq0U4on3g.jpg
  9. I still can't take it in. I'm in shock over Lemmy, then I'm hit w/ Bowie! :o :( He always seemed somehow... immortal. Like, there's no way he can really go. I'm in shock. My brain still refuses to process this one. I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring. -David Bowie
  10. Aww man. It does get confusing. There's a lot of emotion when it comes to family. Even more, I think, when adoption is part of the equation. I'm so glad you had such great, loving parents. I can't speak for all birth-parents out there, coz every experience/life is different, but if you really want to find her, I think it's worthwhile to at least try. It will be emotional, no matter the outcome, so tread lightly. Maybe have someone contact her on your behalf, to "test the waters", so-to-speak. The go-between can softly introduce the idea, and she can let them know if she'd welcome a meet or not. I don't think that searching for your birth mother would be disrespectful to your mom. You love her, and she loved you. There is a bond, and you know how you feel in your heart. Wanting to know about your birth mother isn't disrespectful, it's a natural curiosity about a part of your life. For whatever reasons, she couldn't be the mom you needed. But she did give you, and your parents a great gift. You got the loving family who wanted you, who loved you, who raised you. She gave your parents a child they wanted, but could not have on their own. Whatever you decide, I really do wish you the best.
  11. I always knew I wasn't "mommy" material. And sweetie never really has the "daddy" drive, either. Buuuut... things happen, and one finds themselves with a decision to make. For us, it was truly a surprise. I actually had no idea that I was pregnant until I was in labor. (No missed period, no movement in my belly, no "baby bump"... honestly, there was nothing to tell me, or sweetie...) Had we known? I might have chosen to abort. I don't know for sure, though. As it was, we gave our baby up for adoption. We read profiles of hopeful couples, we spoke with a counselor there at the hospital, and we both were happy with that decision. We held him, we named him, and I fell into those deep, indigo eyes... Loved that child on first sight. But even with the flood of hormones and endorphins and all, I knew he wasn't "mine". I still didn't feel the "mommy" thing kicking in, and I knew that I never really would. Adoption was the best thing I ever decided. But I always wondered, what are the thoughts of the child? What are your feelings about being adopted? Do you ever resent your mom for getting pregnant and giving you up? Do you ever wonder about her? Do you Love her/hate her/feel nothing for her? I always wonder... I know every child feels different, and every situation is unique, and I don't expect you to be the spokes-person for every adoptee, but... what was your experience? Sorry if I'm pulling the thread off-topic, but... I've always wondered. I don't think you're pulling this thread off-topic as it raises an interesting point. Somewhere that couple and child are hopefully living a happy life. You had a child you didn't want (it looks so harsh when written as text), but you gave someone who might not have had the oppertunity themselves the chance to experience that. I really don't know how that feels, both being the one giving up a child for an adoption, those who adopt or the child being adopted. Did you do it anomynous or will the child know who was its biological parents? We were given profiles of a few couples, and we chose the couple we liked/resonated with best. We told the counselor that, if he wanted to meet us, we didn't mind being found. The way it worked with that place was, at 18 yrs, with his adoptive parent's blessing, or at 21 if they didn't approve. (he's like, 20, now. I wonder if we'll get a call/visit? OMG... I hope he doesn't hate us...) We got pictures and progress reports for a little while, and he looked very happy. For me, giving my son to another couple was the greatest way I could love him. I simply don't have the "mommy" thing. Even holding him in my arms. I loved him, I thought he was the most amazing thing in the world. He was a beautiful little sweetie, and I still remember looking into those indigo eyes and seeing the entire universe there. But I also knew that... I just wasn't the "mommy" he'd need me to be. I have the love, but I'm not the nurturing kind. And I know that about myself. I just ... I was raised in a loving home. Mom is just amazing and strong and wonderful, my dad was more than I realized... I have some lovely memories. And part of me wishes I could do that. Be the "mommy". And I wonder, I do really wonder... as much as his adoptive parents love him, does he ever wonder about us? About me? Does he ever think that we hated him, didn't want him? That we just threw him aside? Coz that's not how it was. We loved him, still do. We loved him enough to give him to someone who could be the nurturing, supportive, parents that he needed. It's a complicated swirl of emotion, feeling such a deep love, yet knowing that just love wouldn't be enough. And the worry that he might not understand. I wonder, do I even understand it all.?. *ugh* So very complicated!

  13. That's because you have great taste in music. ;) All Geddycorns do
  14. The Geddycorn is a magnificent, magical creature. For a long time, she was thought to be a myth... Like a Unicorn. A beautiful creature, thought to only exist in imagination/stories. Never real, never existing at all. The Geddycorn is a female Rush fan, who enjoys Rush on their own... not dragged in by a brother or boyfriend. Geddycorns have existed from the very start of Rush, though they were much rarer in those early days... One of the first Geddycorns was Donna Halper, who gave the band great air-time on WMMS in Cleveland. She recognized the awesomeness and shared it with the world. :) But Rush was seen as a "guy band", and without a significant number (or any, lol) love songs to make the chicks swoon, it was assumed that girls just wouldn't dig Rush. And for a time, many girls didn't really. They were dragged to shows by brothers or boyfriends. But even in those early days, the Geddycorn existed, though their majesty had not yet been recognized. The presence of a female at a Rush show was thought to be strictly because of a male bringing them along. Some of the girls that were dragged to a show, or otherwise made to listen, became Rush fans, of course. And for a time, it was assumed that any girl that liked Rush, got into them because of a male influence. Some of these might be thought of as pseudo-Geddycorns, as they did not begin willingly. Only gradually coming around after repeated exposure. Some are actual Geddycorns, digging the band right away, they just hadn't heard them on the radio or whatever. Once exposed to the music, their true Geddycorn nature shone forth. Brothers learned that their Geddfycorn sisters were cool, boyfriends found a deeper love for their Geddycorn girlfriends. Other Geddycorns sprang up spontaneously, with no guy in their life saying "Hey, check out this band" or "Sweetie, have you heard this song? You'll love it". They happened upon Rush by chance, and instantly felt that spark. These were the rarest of Geddycorns, as, for a long while, Rush just didn't get the air-time they deserved. It was hard for the average girl to hear a Rush song out of the blue. (but we do exist!) The origin of the term Geddycorn, I do not know. But meaning is clear... we are girls who like Rush because we like Rush. And we are awesome! :)
