I have no idea what to say. There are no words, perhaps. I think I'm posting here because for a long time it is the only place where I could see her doing an occasional update. She wasn't on Facebook, she wasn't on PJJ or active on her AIM account. So this is the only place I can think of to post anything. And since there is nothing I can say, I will write something that was written on my grandfather's funeral card, a piece I always found comforting.

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was, there is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.

Farewell to the girl with golden hair. Rest in peace.

Out-pranking the pranksters

I had several prank callers today at work, so I decided that with the next one, I'd respond in kind. Here's how it went down -

Phone beeps, my usual greeting plays, and I hear a lot of giggling.
"..." Giggles.
"...can I help you?"
"I'm going on holiday." Oh, prank caller, this should be fun.
"That's nice."
"Yep." Lots more giggling in the background, and I can hear people egging the obviously fourteen-year old on.
"So... can I help you?"
"...I'm going on holiday. Want to come?" Plenty of giggling at that one.
"Oh come on, if you're going to prank call someone, at least be creative about it. By the way, while we were talking, I've forwarded your number onto the Malicious Calls Bureau of the Gardaí. Golly gee, I hope they don't call before you leave the country or they might just ruin your holiday!"
"What?! No, please don't call the guards, please, don't-"
"Whup! Too late, I've pressed the button!"
"No seriously, come on, I-"
"Enjoy your holiday, byeeeeee!"

I press the FREE button and the line goes dead.

Now, obviously I don't have the power to forward anybody's number onto anyone, we can't see the person's phone number, we can only tell if it's a landline or mobile, and I couldn't call the Gardaí if I wanted to, because I have no phone. But still.

I had a good laugh at that one. It might be mean, but damn if it wasn't funny.
