And now, with my heart ripped to shreds and my faith in fellow man cast asunder, I must slope off into the darkest recesses of my tortured soul in a vain attempt to rebuild my shattered excuse for a life.

Thanks for nothing, OP.

Here's a sproutman to cheer you up.

Sometimes I think so.

My bad, I'm in the GOLDEN state, although it seriously feels like it could be called sunshine state in summer when it tops 100. and the sun's out again today, how lucky am I? Especially seeing the weather report for the poor beggars in the east today.
Stay warm all you snow covered people.

I'm from Wales, but unfortunately nowhere near Texas. I'm in the Chicago Suburbs watching our gentle little blizzard blow though leaving several feet of snow behind it!

There is a Cardiff up in NE somewhere but I don't remember where.

I'm a Cardiff boy originally although now living in Houston, Texas which is considered a stones throw from Grapevine!!

I'm welsh and I'm currently still living in Wales, and moving to Boston in the summer if all goes to plan. So not quite expat yet but hopefully soon to be.
