from rs536-2000 :
I just added you to my blogroll at my new location...I'll be staying with you. I'm going to http://crankygirl.wordpress.com
from smedindy :
Thanks for the add!
from rs536-2000 :
Damn, you're rough. she says in a small voice: it's a day time wedding.
from rs536-2000 :
I feel your pain...the cold stinks. Thanks for your note and have a good race!
from rs536-2000 :
I can't decide who has it worse...the kids or the beasts...
from onlymayday :
Wow, nothing says Halloween quite like hippie girls leading their hippie alpacas and candy corn (they wash it, they wash it!).
from rs536-2000 :
Thanks for the note. I'm glad to have finished and today I'm going to look like the "sleepy Stella" picture--except not as cute.
from redhott27 :
Oh my god, that kitten is frickin adorable! By the way I have moved to www.myspace.com/missychristen
from rs536-2000 :
In case you didn't know, there are tapazole chews for cats. They come in liver and tuna flavors and my cat loves them.
from xnavygrrl :
My oh my, do I know how the loved ones of that family feels. Murder is so senseless. Even though it happened to me, I still have a hard time believing that there are more people out there that would brutalize and murder children. That is so sad.....
from lasvegasliz :
I do too listen to you!
from lasvegasliz :
Well, yeah, that does make sense, but the thing is...I don't care if he replies or not. I don't care if I showed him all my cards or whatever, because I have no cards left to play with him. I've resigned myself to just being a friend, if I can't even have that, it's just not worth it. I do completely understand and yeah, the emails would be better off unsent, but sometimes I just find it necessary to get it out of my system and whatever happens...so be it.
from xnavygrrl :
He he he. That is so funny. assecories....!
from dinahsoar :
Wow! Awesome photos! No question. Your weekend rocked! The cabin looks incredible, as do all y'all. I'm insanely jealous (but happy for you guys at the same time).
from f-i-n :
Loved it.
from dinahsoar :
Great character studies! You could write a whole book about any one of them. And your descriptions were so funny and vivid, I feel like I was there. And thanks for the riverboat ride, too!
from dinahsoar :
Just stumbled on your diary, which took me through a whole range of emotions. I actually got tearful reading about the half of the elderly couple now walking the same path alone (my mom lost my dad in 2003 and is just like the person you described). Then, I read about the jewelry (forget the jewelry - what about the BEANS?????) and was laughing out loud! Thanks for a cathartic evening! I love your writing!
from lasvegasliz :
Is EVERYBODY gay?! :)
from emiloo :
Aw, you make me feel appreciated. And somewhat ashamed. But that's okay.
from xnavygrrl :
I felt so bad for laughing when you wrote about your bike mishap....but you made it sound so funny!
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note. :)
from xnavygrrl :
Awwww, what a pretty kitty! And you are NOT boring!
from xraygurl :
Hey! Love reading your entries! I've added you as one of my faves!
from lasvegasliz :
EwWWW! Squishy! Crickets! Toes! EWWWW!
from fridayfilms :
Oh DEAR GOD I love sushi and Indian food, with a nice Asahi or cold sake. I try and eat one or the other at least every week. And the whole "I don't read books thing"? I don't get it either. Arg. Now it seems kind of tactless to switch gears and apologize for your loss, being a new reader and all. But that's what I want to do. Your earlier description of what it means to die is touching and I hope you find comfort in your family during this difficult time.
from xnavygrrl :
You don't have to perform for any of us. Just be you. I have always liked your writing in whatever stage.
from legalbeagle :
I.LOVE.YOU.SO.MUCH! Okay, that was kind of creepy, but that's how I feel after the latest entry (of 10/7/04) I have been trying to notice and appreciate everything since coming back from the North Shore last month - specifically hiking by Cascade Falls and taking in Lake Superior. I actually thought of Amblus when spotting the super-intense mountain bikers on Lutsen Mountains, getting ready to go hammer out some miles. Then I saw another, completely muddy and happy group of bikers getting their pix taken. Come to Minnesota, drive to Lutsen, and have fun. And books? YES. I AGREE. Unfortunately, MY HUSBAND is one of those who thinks reading is a waste of time and you should "do stuff" instead. Hi, I AM doing stuff - I am in the field with Shug Avery, damnit!!!! I see his point, but it makes me sad that he doesn't get the joy out of it I do. Okay - is this note INCHES long now?....I'll shut up.
from notjustamom :
Cute Kitty! Youre in the same State I am. Cool.
from xnavygrrl :
I hate it when purses smell like ass.
from xnavygrrl :
Update already! I miss ya!
from legalbeagle :
I totally thought of you on the way to work today, as I yelled out "LEONARD BERNSTEIN!" in your honor during "It's The End of the World As We Know It" heh heh heh...yes, I am THAT evil!
from emiloo :
Dude, I KNOW. Don't rub it in. My sisters and I got my mom tickets for her birthday, not really realizing that we would then have to go with her. Oh, the dancing and lisping and silly rehearsed banter. But my mom had a good time.
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note. :)
from xnavygrrl :
Good luck with your tomatoes. May the force be with you!
from parlance :
I hate clowns SO much. Have you ever seen that episode of 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' when the clown puppet becomes possessed? Creepy..
from xnavygrrl :
A voo-doo doll of you hyper-dedicated officeworker, and your boss, will make you feel much better about work.
from xnavygrrl :
I also have the fear of small talk. Don't feel bad.
from pernickety :
Grr. Limited edition candies. And they always do that with the best ones. Or is it that good tasting because it's limited edition? They should try to put that L.E. thing on Snickers for a while..maybe it'll taste better.
from xnavygrrl :
It's true. I'm a nasty candy addict. :)
from legalbeagle :
My god! How did I go this long without reading your book list!! I AM A TARD!!!! What a great idea. I want to give you a couple of titles, but since I'm in school w/two jobs I can't read anything in return. How about I start & when I'm almost done with one of YOUR faves, then I'll challenge you w/one of mine!!

from brain-dump :
ah, nostalgia. reminds me of the days of working for a F***ING lunatic. i am free of him and sooooo glad. now i'm self employed. the pay sucks, but wow, i love my boss. :-)
from xnavygrrl :
My god you had me laughing today. You're right about the song lyrics too. Wacky!
from pandionna :
Is there any way you could turn the vacuum on your boss? Just *zzzzhhhhhfplut* and no more boss?
from gem-chan :
Oh ho hoooo! I was a receptionist for one hellish summer. Not only did I field stupid calls for a government office, I had to field them in two different languages. Only my spanish is really bad, so I would just tell them to call back in an hour, the only phrase I knew in Spanish and then run and cower when the phone rang again. Sometimes, when they would call and immediately begin ranting in Spanish, I would hang up on them. Heh. I was a very bad receptionist. Happy Politically Incorrect Holiday, by the way! (I too have a secret love for can shaped cranberry jelly. Wouldn't be Turkey Day without it)
from xnavygrrl :
I like your place. And you've got a few ghosties. That is awesome!
from fargahar :
A lot of my faves have you listed as a fave so I checked you out and laughed my ass off...thanks!!!! :)
from spiffy12345 :
You have such a cool and funny banner!
from xnavygrrl :
Oh god. That's not natural.
from pandionna :
Looks at picture of Cat-Lady. Runs screaming back to Adrien's page and cowers in terror. Like under that big conifer in front of her old homestead. Yes, when you move, just leave me there. Eep.
from officegal :
I hope your having a good business trip. i just took my first plane trip this last weekend for my birthday. i went to utah! i love planes. im rambling. just wanted to wish you luck!:)
from luxolive :
I was in the Dallas airport on Saturday, damn it. How freaking bizarre is that?
from gem-chan :
Ah, Texas and New Mexico, my home! I'm from El Paso, TX and I've spent a fair amount of time in NM. You made me all homesick. I MISS ARID LANDSCAPES! I'd like to think that I've adjusted fairly well to rain and snow and humidity here in NY, but in reality, I'm just a big wimp. Give me oven-like heat! Give me dirt and cacti! I never want to shovel snow again! AHHH! Sorry. Anyway, glad you had fun on your trip. Isabel didn't do much up here, it sort of petered out by the time it hit central NY state. Just some wind. Some branches fell. The weather people were predicting doom, so I was a little pissed when I emerged from my storm hidey hole and found that my flashlight, bottled water and dried astronaut food weren't really necessary. The birds chirping outside my window were mocking me.
from emiloo :
Glad you're okay and getting away from the hurricane damage.
from xnavygrrl :
I look forward to reading you every day. Your sense of humor is amazing. You go girl with that new job. They'll love ya, they won't be able to help themselves. :)
from legalbeagle :
What, you get a new job and forget all about us? *sigh*
from legalbeagle :
What, you get a new job and forget all about us? *sigh*
from mommylap :
Oh yes, Sam Rockwell is on my a-list. Him and Edward Norton. Congrats on leaving temp hell for a new and different real job hell. I'm sure you'll be great. It's a whole lotta brand new though with the house on top of it. You must have some excellent karma that's cashing in. Come to think of it, with that kind of karmic return Sam will probably call tomorrow!
from mayapple :
WHOO! And also, HOO! Congrats on the new job, you rock star, you!
from gem-chan :
I knew that human sacrifice would work for you! Congrats!
from legalbeagle :
I love the whole Sam Rockwell phone call entry!!! You are so my star-fucking soul mate. Let's go stalking together. Shit, I'd even follow people like fucking Arsenio just to get a thrill.
from taliarant :
Oh my, but you had me laughing! :) I've only read back to the "Hotel California"/"Loan Processing Center" entry, but I had to cover my mouth to keep from giggling out loud. :) (You know, since I'm at work, that would be a bad idea...) Can't wait to see what else you have to say! :)
from hokusai529 :
i just read you entry about stinkiness and nastiness. i was cracking up. i totally know how you feel. people have forgotten how nice it is to smell absolutely nothing. i got one of those "true air" filters for my house and it's great. and i think you'r ethe only other person i've ever encountered that uses the word "smarmy" i think i love you! haha
from emiloo :
P.S. It's so cute!
from emiloo :
YAY! You got a HOUSE! (I might be getting one, um, tonight? Or tomorrow? I'm waiting to hear from The Bank.) CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
from emmbee :
congratulations lady! that's the best news i've heard in a long time.
from mayapple :
Thank you. It means a lot to have you say that. I don't feel so bad about it anymore, I'm so much happier here. But at the time I definitely felt like a loser. You're sweet, thanks again.
from gem-chan :
SCORE! Does this mean you get to go furniture shopping at Ikea? Because then I'd really envy you. Anyway, congrats on the house! It looks cute. All it needs are some lawn gnomes...
from pandionna :
Ack, wait! That didn't come out right! I meant you in the plural, as in, not your company, which would have involved Milton and...oh, you know what I mean. Heh.
from pandionna :
Congratulations! So, uh, you didn't process your own loan, eh?
from mayapple :
CONGRATULATIONS!!! It's adorable! Is that a screened-in porch? Whoot!
from pandionna :
Good luck with the house! I have assorted body parts crossed.
from xnavygrrl :
I love it. Tell your buddy he's a genius. I love that song by the way..you had me laughing.
from pandionna :
I don't know how to tell you this, but after reading that song, I, ummmm...ah...I think you need a vacation. Seriously. I'm worried about you, ma'am. Heh.
from sanguinity :
I love reading your diary! It makes me laugh all the time. You're a keeper :) -Jessica
from brkfstfnys :
Hooray for the jeans purchase! One can never have too many pairs.
from emiloo :
Ack! Great pictures! So jealous.
from emiloo :
You should get a hummingbird feeder and put it just outside your window. So entertaining, and the same hummingbirds will come back every freaking year. It's amazing. Hi, I just turned into my mom. Good luck on your interview!
from sunnflower :
Clicked in through your banner. The world needs smartasses!
from mayapple :
Oh, barf. I got a glimpse of nasty spider nast and I feel ill. I'm really glad that your man didn't have one of those freaking boils. Egads. On a lighter note, I would really like one of those crazy cute posters. And also, I miss you and I'll nevah, evah drop you. K?
from luxolive :
Ha HA. I just refinanced. Sorry?
from beckhamisgod :
Your banner is awesome man! I just found it funny in my strange way. Just passing. Like ur diary x
from brain-dump :
I clicked on your banner, you know, the one that INSISTED I click on it. Glad I did! Man, your coworkers sound awful. But the entry was funny. I'll be back :-)
from gem-chan :
I can pat you on the head with a tiny wooden hand. Don't worry, I still love your journal, you don't have to update everyday, just whenever the muse strikes you and gives you a bloody nose. As for your bike riding...jeez beasties woman! I sprained my ankle just walking around my backyard. If I ever even attempted what you do, I would probably impale myself on a tree or something. I stopped riding my bike after I got hit by a car. Bike + Gem-chan=Death. Toodles!
from xnavygrrl :
I still love and read you!
from zostrich :
who's the author of cold mountain? right now i'm reading anna maxted's latest, and so far it's pretty likeable. the poisonwood bible is cool on two levels: the story and characters are really well done, and its also a surprisingly accurate portrayal of africa in the 1950s. (both of my parents are from ghana and i get so tired of the "untouched savages of the wild who live in huts" mentality that a lot of westerners give to their writings on africa.) it was very refreshing that way.
from renewedgrace :
Hey...you have a pretty nifty diary. You're layout is pretty cool! Have a great day! >>>>----->
from zostrich :
what did you think of good in bed? i read it earlier this summer and adored it. also, have you read in her shoes? same two questions for barbara kingsolver book, except replace good in bed with prodigal summer and in her shoes with the poisonwood bible :)
from mayapple :
Hat damn for cute haircuts! I bet you are capital A adorable. And also, you are #1 on my list for driving my car if I'm ever in your neck of the woods. I keep trying to figure out a Drinky Drink-related business excursion. Oh, and I still kind of think Simon Le Bon is cute...and now he is old and extra puffy. Whatever.
from gem-chan :
Yeowch. That guy...he gave me the willies, but he was nowhere near as scary as that Octodog thing. Seriously frightening. I guess I still have hotdog issues from when I was a kid and my mom forced me to eat those cheese filled ones. BLARGH! TRAUMA! Oh, and those college kids? I have one for you. The house next door to my parent's was up for sale/rent for a long time. They live near the university and eventually, about five college kids scraped up enough money to rent the place. Anyway, long story short, we come home from dinner one night, my dad goes to pull into the driveway and very nearly runs over 2 naked 20-somethings who were having sex in my parents' driveway. I was about 10 and thought it was very funny. Still do, actually. Well, needless to say, their landlord had them out in about a week. Ooh! Read the new Harry Potter in 2 days...a very sleep-less weekend. I really liked it, but it's definitely more angsty than the others. Well, Harry is a teenager. I kind of don't think kids under 12 or so should read it, mostly because they wouldn't get a lot of it. I think maybe this one should be put in the Young Adult section. One last note and I'll leave you alone to daydream about the Tour de France and the next weekend, Tracy Chevalier has a new book out! AND! They are making a movie version of 'Girl With A Pearl Earring' starring COLIN FIRTH AS VERMEER! Eeek! I squeaked when I read that. The girl is being played by Scarlett Johanssen of Ghost World and The Horse Whisperer fame. Ooh, so happy.
from mayapple :
Gah! I was going to link to Scary Guy in my entry today. That is seriously the most terrifying-looking human being I have EVER SEEN. Oh, and also, are you still mad at me? No crying!
from mayapple :
NO! THERE IS NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! Don't cry, little one. At least it's not raining?!
from lost-mistake :
Hi, today I have made it a point to try and talk to everyone I have on my Fav. list...and you are one. So I just wanted to say hey.~Rachel~
from luxolive :
I totally used to call the cops on my college kids light couch on fire in backyard neighbors when I lived in the old place. Freaking tools. The only problem was that I had the address of the party house wrong and kept sending the cops to the empty parking lot on the other side of my building. Oops? Ha.
from emiloo :
Dude, I have done that exact same thing with the cop-calling, including the crouching by the window and peeking through a tiny slit in the blinds. Damn kids today.
from squee-chan :
Wow. I follow a link from a friend and first thing I see is "Bring on the Squee." "But... I don't know this person!"
from mayapple :
OTTERS. PUGS. We were seperated at birth, my friend. And, I was 29% geek. Also, I have been sending out serious vibes to the universe RE: the job. LASTLY, Element. Next week. My car needs new brakes, and my mechanic told me that if I was thinking about trading it, now is the time.
from emiloo :
Aw, I'm 30.76923% geek. Snort.
from mayapple :
Thank you so much for the sweet note. I will totally take you up on your "instant best friends" offer when I'm in your neck of the woods. And also, SQUEEE! Trial at the interview place! Rules!
from emiloo :
Good luck on your interview! I'm sure you'll kick ass!
from mayapple :
Deep breaths, amblus, deep breaths.
from mayapple :
Great letter! GOOD LUCK on the interview, I'm so excited for you that I almost sent "good vibes", whatever the hell those are. You'll knock their socks off! And also, BUSEY! Scary.
from emiloo :
I'm not sure if you've already addressed this, but I felt you should be aware of this: <http://www.comedycentral.com/tv_shows/imwithbusey/>. I am sorry to be the one to show this to you, if you were not already aware of it. Is it wrong to say I saw the commercial for this last night and thought of you? But only in a concerned way.
from mayapple :
I KNOW. How cute is that damn car? The few times I see one in person, I stop what I'm doing and let out a little noise. But now I don't htink I'm allowed to get one, because buying a house AND a car will directly result in me losing my job, or getting pregnant. Or something.
from emiloo :
Aw! LOVE the childhood pictures. I would post my own, but they are sad and disturbing. (Picture a pair of very skinny legs, with a blonde, badly-permed hair sitting on top of them. Add some snaggly teeth. Voila!) For me, 5th-10th grades sucked it big time.
from gem-chan :
Hmmm...checked out the bad food link. Luckily, the only thing on that list that I eat is Campbell's Condensed soup. It's comfort food, so sue me. Sorry about the rain. It's raining up here in NY too. Only the mosquitoes (how the hell do you pluralized mosquito?) are happy. Anywhooo, I thought of two more books you should check out. One is the trashy, yet oh so much fun to read as an example of a genre, 'A Long Fatal Love Chase' by Louisa May Alcott. It was 'discovered' a few years back and re-published. I think it's a hoot. Also, 'Catspeak' by Bash Dilba (I think I got the name right. Bash Dilba, Tash Melba, Stash Gelba, whatever)It teaches you how to communicate with your cat. If all that psychobabble hooey doesn't fly with you, it does have nice tips on grooming, etc. Good luck on your job application...I searched for three months after graduating from college before landing a job, and it was a total stroke of absolute good luck. My lowest point was when I started recieving rejection letters for jobs I hadn't even applied for. That pissed me off. Well, good luck, I'm turning blue for you!
from mayapple :
We served a chopped salad at one of the tres upscale restaurants I worked at in NYC. It was literally tossed in a vile, room temperature mayo mixture, before it was molded into an "appealing" ring shape. Blargh. Go America.
from brkfstfnys :
Hee hee... yes, I am your doppelganger up north. I WAS able to wear my sunglasses on two separate occasions this morning (one of the occasions being the boss sending me out to buy her bottled water, but let's be thankful for small favors.)
from gem-chan :
Howdy...read your note on libraries and nodded my head...and pumped my fist in the air while yelling "Yeah!" Note to myself: Don't read diaries while at work, you'll frighten the patrons. Anywhooo...of course I agree with you, since I am a librarian and all. An interesting note on the self-checker-outter things, my boss sent all the employees an article from the NY Times about the NYC libraries that had purchased the things to expedite the check-out process. Hardly anyone used them. When the reporter asked some patrons why, the main answer was that they preferred human contact. A machine can't recommend books, handle complaints, help people, chat, etc. Don't worry too much about libraries. If there's one thing I've learned during my library studies, it's that they are adapting to the 21st century. It's no longer just books. Now it's videos, CDs, DVDs, internet access, e-books, books on tape and CD, etc. As for the letting people take out all sorts of expensive stuff with little more than a promise to return...you probably turn everything back on time, so you don't know...but most libraries are tenacious about returning items. Especially my library, since one of my favorite things to do is write the 'nasty letter' threatening jail time and fines. (I love NY state law!) The return rate of items after that letter is sent is 95%. Whee! Talk about stress relief!
from katiedoyle :
came coz of the cat banner, which is hilarious (cat vs. box of cereal). liked the diary. will be adding to faves. :) kd
from emiloo :
Dude, Professor David Lavery from the Buffy Studies bit on NPR? One of my old English professors!
from luxolive :
Dude. I am terrified of the snake. Even of the harmless snake. I seriously freak out even thinking about snakes. In fact, I got freaked out just reading your journal. Gah. HATE THA SNAKE!
from gem-chan :
It's difficult to type when you're curled up into a tiny ball of fear...but that's the reaction that the smile poem gets from me...pure, abject horror. On another note, thanks for the links to Pamie's cats' diary entries. I laughed really hard. I am definitely going to get her book...and buy a copy for the library, too.
from mayapple :
Yo, VIP, Let's kick it! Ice Ice Baby, Ice Ice Baby/ All right stop, Collaborate and listen Ice is back with my brand new invention/ Something grabs a hold of me tightly Then I flow like a harpoon daily and nightly/ Will it ever stop? Yo -- I don't know Turn off the lights and I'll glow/ To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle. I HAVE TO GO TO WORK NOW.
from mayapple :
We didn't start the fire/ It was always burning/ Since the world's been turning/ We didn't start the fire/ No we didn't light it/ But we tried to fight it/ OH IT'S ON!
from mayapple :
Man, don't you hate having "Blinded By The Light" stuck in your head? It's really embarassing, isn't it. OK, we have to stop the song wars because I can't take anymore Bangles, and you don't want me to further open up the Classic Rock Archives in my head. Thanks for complimenting my banners, I used myImager.com. I got the step-by-step directions right here on diaryland, thank GOD. PS--you rock.
from seekingme :
Hey, hope you don't mind, I've added you to my favorites! I think you're great and I totally agree...the PT Cruiser is ugly!!! Keep up the great work...signed your newest fan!
from luxolive :
Cracking up. I got your banner on my entry page this a.m. Good times.
from gem-chan :
One of my absoulte favorite books was 'Girl with the Pearl Earring' by Tracy Chevalier. I am also rather fond of a book called 'Alison's Automotive Repair Manual' by Brad Barkley. Any one of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum mysteries are wonderful, completely hilarious. And, 'Across the Nightingale Floor' by Lian Hearn is a fascinating read, and it's supposed to be part of a series. Ooh, I could go on forever...it's always dangerous to ask a librarian to recommend a book.
from mayapple :
WhoOt! Hey there, it's Marianne/sailor/whatever. I've finally started a diary, but it is boring and repetitive. Perfect for reading before bed. Anyway, HI!
from gem-chan :
Don't worry. You can't be any more boring than me. My weekend high light was going to the Price Choppah and buying fruit. Oh, and paying my taxes. I am always suspicious of middle aged women wearing Looney Tunes or Pooh shirts. It reminds me of vaguely frightning days working as a receptionist at a government office populated with scary middle aged women wearing glittery Pooh sweatshirts who decorated their cubicles with beanie babies,inspirational posters featuring kittens and monkeys in precarious and amusing situations, Betty Boop dolls and those things you can put on your monitor to make it look like a cow or a dog. These ladies were always trying to sell me Avon or Pampered Chef stuff, going as far as cornering me in the bathroom, waving catalogues, a maniacal light glinting in their eyes as they extolled the virtues of garlic peelers and Skin-So-Soft body spray. *shudder* That was the longest summer of my life. And I now have more garlic peelers and body spray than I know what to do with.
from xnavygrrl :
Oh, my God. You are so funny. I laughed so hard reading about your horn in your car. I sympathize. I'm putting you as a favorite. Today, I needed you because I put in my first somber entry in a while, and well, you cheered me up. :) Have a good day. Missy
from rudey :
David Bowie, I love David Bowie. And I can deal with horses, I guess- no wonder Kiefer did The Cowboy Way and 3 Musketteers!
from wishaword :
OoO.. I'm jealous! You've seen some great bands live! I've just got into Bad Religion and they're great. ;)
from gem-chan :
I have a terrible urge to do a list, too. Lists are fun! Anyway, I've been reading your journal and I must say, I empathize with you on many points. 1. Job that you hate...My second job is as a night clerk at a Univeristy library. It is a soul sucking job that I dread going to every day. 2. Bad-Candy: OMG...did you read the review on the Chinese candy 'My Love' with "Enrique"? I laughed so hard I fell off my seat...and I was at work! 3. Laughing so hard you cry while driving. Of course, my experience had nothing to do with tinny, farty horns. Rather, it was because I had had about 20 cokes and my roommate chose that moment to remember a line in Encino Man where Pauly Shore, on behalf of himself and Sean Astin, begs Brendan Fraser not to: "gnaw on our beaks". For some reason, that prompted a laughing fit so severe, I had to pull over. I don't understand why: a) Anything besides Pauly Shore himself could be so funny b)My roommate even brought it up. I think because I was asking her what the plural for moose was and she said "Moosage", which reminded her of Pauly Shore, I guess. Wierd. Okay, patrons to help and I don't exactly look like I'm doing library business.
from emmbee :
Amblus, I heart you. Things'll look up; truly, they will. I know these things. Oh, right, its melissa rock from the whoot?
from luxolive :
Dude, girlfriend, I am sad about the house for you. Be comforted by the fact that houses can be a giant pile of ass that you live in, and that they can occasionally rage against your machine and make you spend an assload of money on shit that if all were right with the world, you wouldn't even know it existed. Also, I adore you and hope that karma works out and wins you some powerball jackpot so you can have a pony and a house and a personal assistant (which, FYI, would be me.) who would assist you in your shopping and pony admiration.

hey this is amy (whoot) - i was desperately trying to fix my own older entries page and checked yours out... anyhow, because i was curious i googled asshole and adrien brody and found links to hissy fit and "jimmy o's movie reviews page". weird, no? p.s. i am really effing sorry about the house situation. i hope it somehow works out for you.
from ediblmercury :
your banner with the cat rocked my face off.

Ahh, 1988, a good year. My old Toyota was an '88, a Celica. I loved it. Sadly, it died a terrible death. Now I drive a Chevy Malibu and love it as well. This is a bit rambling. Anyway, great journal. Your banners are great. Sometimes I wonder if my cat is both a feline and a pillow. Ta!
from drctprincess :
Oh my oh my! I just happened to stumble onto your journal but you have made my day. You are super fab. and I just wanted to say wow! You make me smile!
from captvfirefly :
Look at you with your spiffy new template! I love it! It's funny you wrote about your friend being all acomplished and stuff...I just had a call from an old friend from high school that makes me look like I didn't even get a GED and that I work as a McNugget cooker. I'm happy for her, but then I start looking at myself and I'm like "what the hell did *I* do wrong?" lol Soo....when are you gonna get a guestbook??
from warmslippers :
Circus peanuts are nasty. Loved your story about your kitty. So precious.
from captvfirefly :
Dude, that's BANANNA flavor?!? I had no idea. I thought it was just ass flavored (not that I would know what "ass" tastes like, but I think you get my drift). Nasty, nasty. And I wouldn't even call it "candy". Gross.
from captvfirefly :
Circus peanuts are from the devil! LOL They are just sick and wrong. I can't believe people actually eat them. Oh, and I'm a Morningstar Farms poster child. They make great stuff. I do still eat some meat, but I try to stick with the alternatives. I was afraid to read that article you linked ...I can only imagine what you meant by "graphic". Down with circus peanuts!! :)
from kitty2112 :
Ok, I don't get non cat people - lol! How can you not like kitties? I'm with you on the affection, as soon as my girls hear my key in the door, they come running. All 5 of them will be sitting there all happy and purring when I walk in the door. Don't get me wrong, I love puppies too (any animal to be honest), but nothing could ever replace my girls! I have pic's of them in my diary if your ever interested. Toodles!
from keryanna :
I pretty much like every episode of Buffy as well. I always read about people's complaints about the episodes/seasons. I'm pretty pleased with them. I just go with the flow. Guess I'm easily amused as well.
from warmslippers :
Clicked your banner and was glad I did. You have a great diary. I added you as a favorite.
from pandionna :
Is it me, or does the lead singer kitten in that video have six toes on each of its two front paws?
from facepunch :
hahahaha "hork."
from scanzilla :
My favorite part of your diary is how your a man looking for love in an East German prison camp. It breaks the heart I tell ya.
from kitty2112 :
Dude, I love you! I found your diary through yer banner and I must say, you cracked me up! My friend Misty (mystical76) and I have been trying to find some new diary's to add to our list, that didn't consist of a 15 year with severe depression. We had all but given up and then BAM! Thank you!
from scanzilla :
I hate those bastard smartpants types. Why if I had a iciosonic progulting transmogifier, they'd all get theirs! I like you. :)
from captvfirefly :
Ok, I'm sending out good thoughts that you're going to get this great new job! Also, I laughed out loud with your memo to Shania. OH.MY.GOD. Her performance was definitely a train wreck. And lip syncing? C'mon honey, don't be a wuss. It must have been the outfit distracted her from being able to sing live. Horrible! lol
from captvfirefly :
I clicked on your banner and wanted to say - love the diary! I can't imagine working with a guy like Milton; I have it bad enough with the "bitches upstairs". Anyway, just wanted you to know I'm adding you to my favorites so I can keep up with ya. ~Firefly
