Don't worry Scruffie, I won't judge you; actually I couldn't agree more on that

I just wish that there were more pictures of John in 1980 without sun-glasses

It's so true about their love though...well, I believe so.
well, this one is not historically accurate. Yoko's been ruomored to have had boyfriends and one whom moved in the day after John died. Now, i don't fault her for that. I'm polyamorous and I suspect she and John had their moments (like when she set up the Lost Weekend with May) but she hasn't spent her life alone.

I really am trying to stay positive so I'm refraining from saying more on this matter. Someone else can if they would like. I'm really done with this for now.
Umm....a bit of Beatles history here...Paul was naked on the insert collage on The White Album way before Two Virgins.
and I love including fighting for full frontal male nudity as one of John's causes.

Yes, Sam Havatoy is not a mystery. But he did NOT move in the day after John died. I've always felt that having someone to help you through your grief, be a companion, and help raise your son would go a LONG way in attempting to "heal" after such a devastating tragedy.

Yoko's possible relationships notwithstanding, her loyalty to John's memory and legacy is unyielding and caressed with love. I believe that people shouldn't have to be physically lonely, but I can see even when she talks about him that there is a definite emptiness in her eyes over his loss and a love whenever she he is brought up.

Was that just a typo or was John's name not capitalized because he's the sub in that particular pairing?? Unexpected, that is...

And of course I know what the fuzz is... that's why it doesn't count. John's full frontal is much more, um, full. I mean, I've only heard Paul is the only circumcised Beatle... or was it Ringo? In any case, we know it wasn't John!

Default Sad state of affairs- to a degree



But I bet they know every line to all Katy Perry and Rihanna's newest songs (though to be fair there isn't much going on lyrically to forget), but how cool are the boys who went up there and performed that flawless song? Unbelievable. Make them your new best friends.

I understand your pain too. As far as I'm concerned, I stopped watching any mourning/memorial scene of John since the 8th December, when saw them for the first time on t.v.

Not that we can measure this stuff, but it was actually a million times worse living through it. On the other hand, I feel really bad for those of you who never got to experience John first hand, so I guess it evens out. But it sucks no matter how you look at it...

I was always bullied and picked on by the other upper class kids at the private Catholic schools I attended. No one ever stood up for me.
When John died, I had an image of him in my head saying, "I'll make them learn to leave you alone."

I watched all the footage and even the Tom Tomorrow show featuring John's last inverview (From five years earlier) crying my eyes out.

Now, my mom always hated John. Me liking him (I fell in love with him when he hosted Mike Douglas for a week) was always something she screamed about literally and she banned his books and records (and bought me Paul's).
When I was crying in front of the tv, the other kids were horrible teasing me. "Look at her cry because John Lennon died. Look at her." they didn't let up.
My mom came up to them and said, "I think she's going to be traumatized by this. Leave her alone." She chased them away and sat with me the rest of the night at one point saying, "Ok. He was handsome."

It didn't end there. I put a picture of John and Yoko up in my locker at school. One day, the principal came by and looked at it.
"Is that John Lennon?" She asked me.
I told her yes.
"Why, there is nothing wrong with that picture. I was told you had an obscene picture of John Lennon in your locker."
She walked away.

A few days later I was called into the principal's office. In there was one of the girls who always picked on me. She was crying.
The principal said that girl was the one who told her I had the obscene picture but what confused the principal was she discovered the girl had the same picture in her locker and wanted to know what was going on.
The girl was crying about how uncool and what a loser and a dork I was and how she was being made fun of because she and I both had the same picture and how I shouldn't like John because he's cool and I'm not. She said she lied to get the principal to remove my photo hoping she'd find John offensive. (My principal used to let me play Beatles records backwards in the AV room during recess but I had to write a thousand word paper on PID for English class as payment for breaking the stereo. She was a big Beatles fan).
The girl got in trouble and her friends were ordered to stop terrorizing me or face suspension.
JOhn lived up to his words for me. I thank him every day.

Shortly afterwards, my principal after she retired gave me a present too. A picture of John and Yokofor my room. The Two Virgins poster. Not making this up. My mom allowed it for years on prinicple about the entire thing. The poster was symbolic. (this was after a suicide attempt I made due to the bullying)

even now, those that would try to erase me as Yoko was tried to be erased, they can't face Beatledom. It's too much for them.

Cute. I'd post some of them in Paperback Writer, but even though the site rules allow for x-rated stories, I'm being singled out and have been asked not to post mine. I guess they're just that hot.
John/Ringo has the potential for lots of humor.

Wow. Thanks for sharing that very personal story, misfittoy! Thank goodness your principal was way cooler than mine at the time. Anyway, how beautifully poetic that your pure love for John helped you defeat the bully. (And also how cool that you actually wrote a thousand-word PID essay as atonement!!)

Yeah, that story was very touching misfit. Thank you for sharing it with us. I really appreciate when people share what they went through during that traumatic time period. It's terribly sad, but it helps me remain connected since I never experienced John the way you all did.

Thank's for sharing your story, misfittoy

Funny, we have some things in common: My mom hates John too (or at least she used to hate him then) and a few (italian) schoolfriend made fun of me when John died, like "oh, I'm sure she was crying all morning when she heard that John was killed".

Our young biology-teacher was a Beatles-fan too and had a big poster of them hanging on her schoolroom-wall. No use to mention that I loved learning biology and got good marks

Hmm the story of the "Two virgin" is quite special I never got such a present so far, but you never know...
