July 14 fireworks

I've been tripping out all over a certain popular meeting application online - think about it and you'll figure it out - where I've reconnected with long lost cousins (8 so far and counting), found some who'd been hidden from us (Gawd, that makes us sounds like a cult....ahem) and a 3rd cousin who could pass for Feral Beast's identical twin.
No, we're not from deepest, darkest Tassie, we do not have two heads and we all have a thoroughly diversified gene pool.

KIDDING, please don't send emails.
Last time that happened my heart went all a'flutter and I squealed in a register that had dogs whining 2 streets away...over emails that offered to make my 'manhood' bigger, longer, faster, stronger.
Last time I looked I was a chick - although this may have changed since May 1997 -so I may decline the invite to "give it to her harder than ever before".
No, really, stop asking.
And don't offer me any "inheritance" if I just cough up my bank details.
That sooooooo isn't winning you any brownie points in this gin joint.Stop whispering sweet nothings in my ear, my "innocent Nubian princess" who only needs my money to "flee from her torture to be free".
And seriously, posing as a banking institution I do NOT bank with and demanding my personal ID details is just a tad obvious, even from the angle I'm at trying to check if I am still a chick....(pass the mirror, will you, I can't reach with my ankles behind my ears....)
