1) My Mom AKA Wendy AKA @wendy2918
Read her blog and follow her.
When she gets round to writing a post they are usually very funny. When I grow up I’ll be as funny as my Mom.
Mom on Lady Gaga – Why oh why oh why would you wear a telephone on your head?
Mom on Teenagers who walk in the road - One day if I can be sure I wouldn’t really give them too much pain or cause too much damage, could I not just ‘bump’ into them? Just once please can I? Promise I will only run them over gently.
Mom on personal safety - My Blackberry phone goes in my left cup and my slimline ipod goes in my right one.
2) My friend Ruth AKA @bintofsparkles
She follows some crazy people and likes to retweet lovely and funny things because she is both lovely and funny herself.
4) A great bloke called Nigel Brunsdon AKA @injectingadvice and @Mannaz who has an excellent website called Injecting Advice who always includes me in his #followfriday shout outs as one of his imaginary friends.
5) Dr Evan Harris AKA @DrEvanHarris
Fights the fight for evidence based drug policy. Makes the other politicians look ridiculous by stating facts rather than tabloid fiction. Lost his seat in the Election which was a massive travesty. I got a tweet thanking me for stalking him. The equivalent of a celeb tweet for me, I was most excited.
I used to play around with time machines when I was older.
Somehow it doesn’t seem right to eat reformed meats, not after they tried so hard to change.
Ah, shit, I once gave Naomi Campbell a blood orange, am I in trouble too?
7) Roadrunner Records AKA @RoadrunnerRecords originally enough. They have all the great bands on their label and their tweets keep me up to date on them all. Yeaaaaaahhh!
7 ( b) Ricky AKA Ranjit AKA @RanjitBhandal
(Because I have to stick to the magic seven otherwise my OCD tendencies will freak!)
My Robin, my right hand man at the DAAT. Doesn’t tweet often enough but should do and will do when I’ve nagged him enough about how useful it is for the drug world. For all your Bhangra/football/drugs/celebrity stalking needs. He follows Katie Price unfortunately though, much to my despair. Desperate to get a celeb tweet, I hope one day he does. When I leave work next month to go completely freestyle (lance) with Inspire I may as well lose an arm. Or a leg. : (
Oh and I suppose you should follow me too @StaceInspire.
I feel a few more blogs about Twitter coming on so watch this space.
Well not actually me on the telly but me on the telly as in talking about it. One day I WILL be on the telly. I’m hoping for Top Gear presenter, replacing Louise on Something for the Weekend, or maybe the new Jeremy Kyle only less exploitative of poor thick people and not a tw*t.
Anywho, I nicked this from http://deannap.tumblr.com/ Thanks!

Who’s your favourite character in 2?
Vince Noir. Played by Noel Fielding, my future sailor husband.
What’s your favourite episode of 4?
Well it’s got to be the more recent Street Countdown.
What’s your favourite season of 5?
I’ve read the books but I’m only on Season Two of the show at the moment. However, I predict Season Three will be my favourite beacuse Alcide comes into it. How shallow of me *sniggers and rubs thighs a la Vic Reeves*
How long have you watched 1?
When did it start? *Consults Wikipedia*…. 2006
How did you become interested in 3?
I liked her in other comedies and something about her manner makes me laugh very hard. You can follow her on Twitter too @mermhart. She’s currently writing the second series. Best scene was when she can’t cancel her gym membership and threatens to wee in the ball pool. I failed to find the clip. Brownie point for whoever can.
Who’s your favourite actor in 4?
Richard Ayoade who plays Moss. His facial expressions crack me up. He’s also Saboo in The Mighty Boosh, or for the purposes of this blogging malarkey, number 2.
Which show do you prefer? 1, 2, or 5?
Far too tough to call. I love them all in their own special way.
Which show have you seen more episodes of; 1 or 3
1 because there have been more episodes.
If you could be anyone from 4, who would you be?
I’d be Jen so I could work with Moss and Roy.
How would you kill off your favourite character in 1?
Owen was my favourite and he’s already been killed off
Would a 3/4 crossover work?
Oh yes, I’m sure it would.
Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple.
It’s pretty much anything goes at Torchwood anyway so any combo would work.
Has 5 inspired you in any way?
Yes. When I grow up I want to be a vampire and bite people.
Overall, which show has a better cast? 3 or 5?
5. True Blood, lots of fit people.
Which has better theme music, 2 or 4?
True Blood- I wanna do bad things with you!
I must go now, got some telly to watch before the IT Crowd is on the telly and before I watch True Blood Season Two Episode 3 not exactly on the telly but on this here laptop. Then I’ll sleep so I can wake up and watch some telly.

I love you.
I love you more.
I reaaalllly love you.
I love you so much.
Look how much we love each other. LOOK how much we love each other. Please look? Please?
Oh… they’ve split up now….
Political Views: BNP
Oh really? You feel the need to let people know you are an ignorant piece of sh*t? No probs, carry on…….Hitler was quite outspoken too apparently, never one to hide his views. Well done.
Copy and paste statuses
Horrible illness/child murder/current media bandwagon issue (delete as applicable). 93% of people on Facebook will not copy and paste this blah blah blah…
Does anyone really think that this makes any difference? If you really do care about the issue just donate to the cause or do something positive about it. Write to your MP, protest, whatever, just stop clogging up status updates with it.

They. Don’t. Work.
People who cheat at Scrabble
Please don’t play me. I hate cheats! There is no point.
Teenagers with poor English (or even worse, older people)
Now some of the teenagers on my friends list are likely to also be my family but even so. Incorrect use of the English language is something that I cannot tolerate. Just try harder please. Get a dictionary if that will help.
wiv – It’s WITH
ent- I presume ain’t but I haven’t or have not would be better
ur – YOU ARE. Two words not two letters
av – HAVE
gd – GOOD
agen – AGAIN
Don’t get me started on their, there and they’re, I’ll be here all night.
People who insist on telling everyone how drunk they are going to get on Friday night and then spend the weekend moaning about how depressed/hungover/ill they feel. Boring. What are you, 16??
I seem to have enjoyed this post quite a lot. This is annoying too Overuse of smiley faces. I like them though so if you have an issue with it blog about it yourself.
I had a rule that I would only add people I know personally to my Facebook friends. About 18 months ago I started playing a lot of Scrabble games with a girl called Anna. She lived in Manchester. After a while I added her as a friend. Anna was online a lot as she was in hospital because she had Cystic Fibrosis. It wasn’t something I knew too much about. When we were both online we’d talk on Chat and she’d tell me all about the different treatment she was having and let me know how her lungs were doing and also her weight. Being a bit silly like I am I would make her laugh and she would tell me off because it made her cough. She would tell me about her Mom and little sister, her friends and most of all her boyfriend Adam who stuck by her and made her so happy.
During her times in hospital she had to try and put on weight before they would let her home. As I am a foodie a lot of our conversations were about food. I would try and look out for high calorie food for her. She would always ask what I was cooking for dinner. We also had a running joke that one day she would come and stay in my spare room and it would be her feeding room. I would just cook for her and feed her up with loads of nice foods. She was at her happiest when she was allowed home, or had the anticipation of knowing she may go home soon. She had to fight a few times and each time she defied the doctors and pulled through. Such a fighter. I’m sure her spirit kept her going longer than most could.
On Saturdays we would be on Chat and we would watch the same TV programmes and talk about them. X Factor and that Wipeout game. Funny.
A few months before my 30th birthday she asked me what I would be doing for it. I said I wasn’t really looking forward to being 30 but I was trying to decide whether to just sit in a dark room and be depressed or have a fat party. Anna said that she had told her Mom she wanted a 30th party whether she was there for it or not. She knew that there was a good chance that she would not make it that far. This conversation decided me. How stupid was it to be worried about being another year older. I realised we should just all be grateful to be here and healthy. I invited Anna of course, we knew she wouldn’t be well enough to come but I had a great night with my family and friends and she sent me a great card.
Despite being in and out of hospital (mostly in) for the time I knew her she was always good to talk to. Less negative and miserable than a lot of the people who post things on Facebook . She made me realise how people need to get a grip, not moan on about bad hair days or baggy eyes or hangovers as some do!! Sometimes she would get a bit down and then apologise! I would tell her off, she had the right to get a bit upset about it all. I think she just wanted to keep everyone else happy and didn’t want to show that she was scared or unhappy. Most of the time I was just amazed that she could be so happy and positive when she was facing such unfairness.
On Friday 27th November 2009 I was out for the night and Anna left me a message on my Wall.
hi hun.. i need your feeding room soon, trying to eat but its hard work.. when i get out of here stacey’s feeding room is where i heading next! we need a chat soon lots of love xxx
I didn’t see it until I got home just before I went to sleep so I left replying until morning.
When I logged on in the morning I replied to her message. Her friend Kate then came online and told me that she had passed away in the night. She was 22 years old.
Although I knew that it could happen I was still shocked and I was also shocked at how incredibly gutted I was. The unfairness of it more than anything.
However, Anna would not want us moping around. She has such good friends and family and a great boyfriend and they all pulled together. It was Anna’s wish that pink balloons be released for her. On the day of her funeral I walked up the hill at Elmdon Park and released a balloon for her. I think she will have been watching.
Last week I had a message off Anna’s boyfriend Adam. Anna had left a box of things for different people. He had found a letter that she had written to me but he needed my address. He sent it on to me and I got it this morning.
She wrote me a lovely letter in a card saying how she was glad Scrabble had brought us together and how much I had cheered her up and made her laugh. She said she knew that if I was reading it that it meant she wasn’t with us anymore but that I should smile like this : ). So I cried a bit and smiled too. Happy that she wanted to write to me and that I had made a little difference to her days (and Saturday nights!).
There is a donation page in Anna’s memory. If you can spare a couple of quid please do.
Anna, you are a star, thank you for all the smiles and laughs most of all the lesson that we should all cherish every moment and not sweat the little things.
I hope if you are reading this that you can learn from Anna too.
Keep smiling, like this
Peace, love, empathy
Keeping in touch with my close family and friends
Non-Facebookers may say why can’t you just speak on the phone or see them in person? Well I am busy and I will see people as much as I can in real life but I like to keep in touch in between these times as well.
Keeping in touch with my old friends and work mates
Some may be afar now or I may be unlikely to see them socially but I still quite like to speak to them and know that they are doing OK.
I’ve always loved Scrabble and when the application was added to Facebook it was very joyous. Come and play with me. Making words is cool.
I like to nose on what other people are up to. Pure and simple.
I am a sucker for them. At the moment it’s all about Cafe World, Zoo World and My City Life. Past obsessions include Car IQ, Rollercoaster Kingdom, Farmville, Farkle, Geo Challenge, ….you get the gist.
Promoting the business
Sometimes inane, sometimes funny, sometimes just good for the aforementioned nosey parker in me. They can also help you to see how you can wheedle down your friends list, but then I am veering into ‘Seven things that suck about Facebook’ which will be coming soon.
Happy Friday everyone, I’m off to check my Zoo.
Peace, love, empathy,
