Damn it, Chris!
1. We were supposed to spend more facetime together.
2. I was supposed to pay you back for the many times you offered your help, support, advice and expertise.
3. You were supposed to be acknowledged as a legend in this field long before your untimely death. (For this alone, you deserve a bloody statue.)
I’m going to miss you, and I’m always going to be grateful for what you gave to me individually, and this country as a whole.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to indulge myself with a few tears before channelling this sense of loss into something positive.
More for you:
18 August, 2004: Everything you read in the newspapers is true
11 March, 2005: Look! Over there! TERRORISTS!
7 April, 2005: It doesn’t matter how you vote; either way your planet is doomed
15 April, 2005: My country, Right or Left (under the bonnet of Political Survey 2005)
30 April, 2005: Vote Labour! (regulars will know why I picked this one)
2 May, 2005: Nice election you’ve got here; be a shame if anything happened to it
UPDATE – Heh. I forgot about this.
