oh i know, me too! i worked at the bell desk back then. during an early evening shift one weekend (the evening of a blanchard party), i looked up and saw a minivan pull up to the circle outside of (my dorm). a whole bunch of guys got out and then wandered off into the darkness. a few minutes later, my friend called me to step outside and check out the van...which turned out to be a CG Academy Van. i actually did go to blanchard that night, and of course i saw those same guys drunkenly wandering (or stumbling) around, or already hooked up, etc. ugh! ick. totally lame.
from lunarsea :
oh! oh, thank you so much, thats such a kind thing to say. it's funny, i guess you've seen it all right back since i was 13! thats nuts, it seems like another life, so long ago that we sent you that postcard and things. its all so different now. i wish i could read as many books as you do! we are happy, my mum is so happy, i am so glad she finally has all the things she wanted, reading her old words makes me so grateful. how are you doing these days? xx
from emeraldtiger :
i'm editing my entries here & stopped in to say you're missed 'round these parts, lady! do you think maybe one day we'll be at a college reunion, sitting by bl@nchard after the alumni parade, laughing about defunct d!aryland? or maybe we'll still be "blog" pals in some form, somewhere, reading/posting about grandchildren & retirements? (or in your case, books, or baking & ANTM Cycle 99)! that'd make us what, 70-something? ;-) xo.
from emeraldtiger :
hey, best wishes in '07! i come to d-land about twice a month, but i'll definitely check out your new page & let you know if there are any non-school books i read and can recommend. (unless you're interested in cognition & human development, ha)! also i'll pass on my new PW if/when i start writing again and re-lock. meanwhile, i'm hiding (but not writing) under different names at lj and mysp@ce, which are lame sites, and where i feel like the only person over 25! and, of course i'm at flickr, where you already know me! have fun w/ your book project. i'll miss your one-liner ANTM/american idol commentary here. xoxo,
from planetqueen :
What kind of things do you like to read? I'd love to suggest something to read if I have some idea of what you like. Hope you are well. Lots of love x
from n-poledancer :
Hey you and happy new year. I still read and have missed you but Im glad you have another blog now. I'll be checking in. Geez... EVERYONE has left dland huh!?
from tinyvessels5 :
PS, i forgot to ask, could you pls delete the mistake note i left? thx.
from tinyvessels5 :
oops! i should have known better than to cut & paste notes! i had just left another user a note, and was leaving you a similar one. anyway, this is just me at a new space. PS: you posted a picture of oatmeal-cherry-maple cookies a couple years ago. where might i find the recipe for them--is there a website? theylook great & the cool weath^er makes me want to bake those!
from emeraldtiger :
you've been issued a new PW again. sorry to change the locks again in just a few months. but the good thing is this one is easy to remember. as i told Bathtubmary, just change the "purple" to "white" if you know what i mean, and that will work! xo,
from emeraldtiger :
awesome! (ditto what planetqueen said). assuming the trip was meant to be some sort of culminating experiential/exchange student component of your school's program, it sounds like your almost done (w/school). if so, that's double awesome!
from planetqueen :
Yay! Hope you had a brill time.
from n-poledancer :
Awesome! Have tons of fun, take pictures and blog about it when you get back please! Have a really nice trip.
from n-poledancer :
Hi you - thanks sooo much for your amazing note. That was so nice. I still read you and I get happy when you update. Big hugs.
from reddirtgirl :
Signmyguestbook is so crappy. Anyway, here is the message I just tried to leave you: Yeah, we didn't REALLY meet Jeff, but strangely, Richard's sister seemed to think he was okay, and she's a pretty good judge of character except for people she dates. On the other hand, she's not best friends with him or anything. I agree, he seems like a bit of an asshat. Not at the Keith level, for instance, but still. Asshat.
from planetqueen :
it was really cool to read your diary again. Glad you are well and enjoy your trip to China. Lots of love x
from lunarsea :
fair enough! here i am, but i should warn you that this is mostly me moaning about silly boys and things. it's a bit of a return to the old 02 rollerqueen form to be honest :D
from emeraldtiger :
i issued you a new password. xo,
from planetqueen :
Happy New Year x
from oh-sweet-pea :
a daiso stateside? i thought that $2 privilidge was only for us vancouverites!
from emeraldtiger :
where can i find the recipe for those pretty coconut cupcakes you like to make? is there a link/website, or a book that has it? it's holiday party season, and i've been tagged *twice* to bring baked goods. of course, i graciously accepted both requests and am thinking about the cupcakes for one event.
from planetqueen :
Oh my god! Bex will cry buckets at the thought that you don't like Sufjan Stevens. I don't know if I dare tell her!
from planetqueen :
happy birthday!
from jcruelty :
while the thought of having a 2nd wife (and one as vivacious and fetching as yourself) has its appeal, do you really wanna be a jew? bacon tastes good! pork chops taste good! also, cleaning your kitchen for passover is a pain in the ass. not to mention the problems inherent in any organized patriarchal religion. my take on it is like david cross: "i look around at all these people in sunday school (when i'm 13) and think: you don't really believe this bullshit do you? this is like dungeons and dragons! where are the unicorns?" such are the sacrifices we make for love. btw it was somebody else's bachelor party i went to; my friend emailed me and was like "you're getting married and you didn't even tell me?" i should probably clear that up. PS looks like you're almost done with the tennis court mission; good on ya
from reddirtgirl :
I totally agree with you that the girls are really heinously ugly this season, but to me it makes the show even more enjoyable in a perverse way. Michelle, for instance: one of god's most unfortunate creatures, yet her epic delusion is pretty fascinating (at least to me). Plus I have to admit, I was glad to see the little pug dog hit the road. She was junior varsity pretty (compared to Michelle's not at all pretty), but she wasn't very good tv.
from emeraldtiger :
...oh and i forgot a common one: naproxen (aleve). but you have to be careful b/c if your diabetic patient also has renal damage or hypertension, then aleve or any other NSAIDS must be used w/caution.
from shadowdress :
i'm realizing that what i just wrote in your guestbook sounded very adolescent and now i'm embarrassed. it's like me telling a gyncolgist i'm really impressed that she's able to look between my legs. sorry. i am lame.
from emeraldtiger :
hang in there--it's almost time for spring break.
from pro-keds :
i move to van on feb 11th. tell me more about yr dream!!
from pro-keds :
sorry bout the bird poop. its that time of year. having dinner with arno tonight in nyc
from emeraldtiger :
ooh, i just went to sign your GB, and cringed upon seeing my previous post. sorry about the drunken signing & those sloppy typos. haha...at least i didn't pick up the phone and drunk-dial anyone that night! ;-) and from an unabashed germaphobe, i think you were smart to have your own reading material with you yesterday. well, doll, have a fun-filled holiday! xo, m
from pro-keds :
be proud of who you are!!!
from oh-sweet-pea :
i'm hoping that they'll still have pumpkin beer when i swing into seattle (on my way to visit kyla in portland) in november. i've dreamt about that beer ever since i heard about it last year. i want me some!!
from pro-keds :
cribbage! big crazy drinks! weird-ass movies! dooks!
from pro-keds :
hi arajane! i'm moving to vancouver in february, so maybe perhaps somehow i'll se you in seattle eventually.
from emeraldtiger :
haha. i'm dominating your notes, b/c of trouble accessing your gb. anyway, a few things i've been meaning to say since catching up on your entries: 1. you are the carrie bradshaw of skirts! 30 is impressive. 2. i love love love your tennis page! what a fun idea--you & c must be excellent players. tennis is great. 3. last year when i was out there, someone told me about some indoor tennis center (in the city of seattle). given that you dislike direct sunlight as much as i do, you might enjoy those courts if you can find them.
from emeraldtiger :
you have a new password. i am sending it to your (arajanedotcom). if this is *INCORRECT* notify me at emeraldtigerATdiaryland and i'll send it where you want.
from emeraldtiger :
hey, question: does lorazepam make you too sleepy to drive a car/operate machinery? i already know you're an ativan fan, as it's been a lifesaver while flying. but i tried two drugs in that class thatleft me too impaired & useless at a tiny dose.ugh.
from emeraldtiger :
aw, ara jane, don't assume the problem lies within yourself. maybe you're not surrounded by the right kinds of women? i'm serious when i say that. we've all been in situations like what you seem to describe in your entry. i once was, but then i realized that the girls around me weren't similarly oriented or on the same wavelength. you just have to find the right kind of people. and after that, remember it's not the number of friendships you form, but the quality of them that matters. does that make sense? and...last but not least, having seen you in person, i can attest to the fact that you're not socially inept at all. xoxo
from oh-sweet-pea :
wow, that is crazy!! yes, send it to me!! oh-sweet-pea@diaryland.com
from oh-sweet-pea :
hey lady, since you are a master baker, i'd love if you could point me to any good cake recipes! i'm already using the one you gave me last year. let me know if you've got anything!!
from oh-sweet-pea :
aww, thanks for your nice comments about my hair and the boy. i have to add that i love hearing about your food and recipe ideas. i'm making that coconut-raspberry-lemon cake that you gave me the recipe for last year for my friend's wedding in 2 weeks! i look forward to more recipe ideas from you!
from emeraldtiger :
PS: if you decide to make a raspberry-almond tart, you must add in a wee bit of chambord to the filling to enhance the taste. a friend of mine does this--she got the idea online--and it's just delicious.
from johnnieutah :
clafouti almost sounds like a dirty word. i'm not a dessert person, but i offer this simple delight: PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP * two chilled martini glasses * half pint heavy whipping cream * 1/4 cup raw cane sugar * 6oz raspberries * several tsps warm honey 1) beat the whipping cream using an electric mixer, slowly adding half the sugar, until the cream holds stiff peaks. 2) spoon some into each glass, top with a few berries, drizzle with a bit of honey. 3) continue layering in this manner until glasses are full 4) sprinkle sugar on top and chill until ready to serve.
from beatlesgyrl :
Now I'm more scared. I hadn't factored in bruising. ;0)
from johnnieutah :
tell that person s/he is a big mean jerk head. you'll feel just as good as if you'd had another adjustment.
from iamhubpluh :
I think that there is a happy medium between clearing your mind, and not being so mean as to sink to thier level. I am seeing a chiroprator now, and I love it! He's being gentle, but some of the adjustments are blissful, and the BEST technique is amazing! My fav though is the self-massage table! Ciao!
from beatlesgyrl :
As for the club, I'll probably start it fresh. I miss burning songs already. I'll shoot for getting it set up again at the beginning of May. How's that? Oooh, now I'm getting excited!
from pro-keds :
merci! you have good taste in lovahs. xoxo
from emeraldtiger :
grrrr. signmyguestbook can go bite me! it won't let me sign again. anyway, i wanted to ask: i was just looking at my favorites list recently and noticed "semiarchy" hasn't updated in ages. what's up with that? i hope everythings ok.
from ohmyjetsabel :
xo
from pro-keds :
thanks ajo. its been stressful.
from pro-keds :
tight-assed? fat-faced? Look what higher education is doing to you!
from emeraldtiger :
oops! sorry for the multiple posts. i hate signmyguestbook. (or maybe signmyguestbook hates me). xo
from melon-ball :
Looking around on diaryland. You've got a pretty diary. My boyfriend and I had too many screwdrivers on Saturday night. I think I had five so I can relate! But I hope you didn't end up getting sick with a vomity hangover like I did. Seeing as I'm a ripe old 27 I had not done that in a long time and probably won't again for a long time. Well nice diary.
from jcruelty :
yeah it was weird we both got sozzled that night
from laura-jane :
I was so sorry to read your note; my thoughts are with both you and 'C'. Take care and all the best, Love Laura-Jane
from laura-jane :
Ara Jane! You are missed in this here land of diaries. Hope all is well.
from planetqueen :
I am all unlocked again. I did put you in to get an automatic message with the password but you can't have got it. Sorry! I'd never abandon you.
from emeraldtiger :
i really do believe you'll do just fine and that school will be great!
from pro-keds :
YOU CAN DO IT!
from pro-keds :
it was funny sober too. btw, i'm loving your new lifestyle...very liz taylor...
from pro-keds :
show us yer new doo!
from emeraldtiger :
my guestbook post didn't work. anyway yes i'll participate. (but be nice! you may quite possibly be the only person i trust enough to interview me).
from pro-keds :
Are you fighting with me? I heeded your movie advice. I'm just telling it like it is about Q.E.
from habbit :
curiouser & curiouser! ...and here i am catching up with your blog today. what will tomorrow bring? your short hair is fetching, and i currently envy your triathletic abilities. i dont think ill be swimming the east river anytime soon!
from pro-keds :
dude i'd pay $10 to watch Naomi Watts wipe her ass for 2 hours.
from rollerqueen :
thankfully! we were just coming back from taking photos and i went to cross the road, and a car stopped and waited but when i started crossing the girl drove at me, but then she must have lost her nerve because she swerved and i got out of the way. i saw her face, she was spitting at us and shouting something like "you should be ashamed". it was quite horrible.
from pro-keds :
did you notice the Redken products on Queer Eye? We met some of the cast this morning at our monthly meeting. hilarious.
from pro-keds :
Hey come to the September NYC Fotolog Meetup! 9/10/03!!!!
from asteroidbelt :
i'll take my jet plane!
from thanksbitch :
friendster will be your online nightmare as it is mine, but let's be friends anyway!
from pro-keds :
i had forgotten how much i loved 'Like a velvet glove cast in iron'. so i just ordered it. thank you for the tip
from kazaam :
ok! you CAN have my password just not right NOW for secret reasons, i will explain later though! i dont hate you, i just like secrets!
from vyv-xx :
Yeah, you're probably right about the bee-eating thing with my dog. The vet thinks something stung her and she had an allergic reaction to it. Watermelon-limeade popsicles sound really yummy, by the way.
from pro-keds :
well, its currently a full-beard stubble. I'll render it into a handlebar soon. I have a gig on friday and Kristin, our drummer, made a bet with me that if i grow a stache she'd play bra-less in a white wifebeater. we're playing at a lezzie bar so that compounds things nicely.
from pro-keds :
i'm growing a moustache.
from pro-keds :
and I could be your all-time quarterback!
from rollerqueen :
me too! i'm doing my SATs next week, which don't actually matter at all and are supposed to be super easy, but my school is putting so much pressure on us to revise and do well. I haven't had much time to write. They'll be over in two weeks though, then i'll be back to normal - that is, if my brain hasn't shrivelled up. anyway, thank you very much for the note. you are still a million times cool. xoxoxo
from kazaam :
6 months!! that must be so painfull and uncomfortable and oh god i don't even want to think about it. drink more cranberry juice. seriously! and get better soon!!
from emeraldtiger :
yr guestbook was acting funny. great fotolog! your little niece is very cute... and i like the kite picture. looks like fun!
from thanksbitch :
hmmm...i thought so, laziness is the true culprit!
from thanksbitch :
really? i find it harder to read when it's all lowercase. but then again using all caps does look like you need to SCREAM YOUR HTML.
from beatlesgyrl :
So this is what I know about the twisted crystal ball: Any number you will ever come up with will be a multiple of nine (18, 54, 81 -- if you're doing it right) and the symbols will be the same for all of those numbers. Mean. Math. Guy. Makes me wanna work my third-grade time tables.
from rollerqueen :
i am the one licking isaac's head, and my best friend elly (floorspace) is the one who looks like shes about to suck my brain out. aren't we the cutest? :/
from pro-keds :
I'm sorry, but I've grown tired of your monogamy. However, you will always hold a special place in my heart.
from jcruelty :
the pic (the one i had up briefly) was of homegrown mushrooms.
from peth :
armwarmer porn should be on top of Thumbzilla's genre listings! Imagine a girl with big hair band coiffings, wearing nothing but armwarmers, delicately fondling her nethers! My eyes and mouth are watering just at the thought...
from pro-keds :
jcruelty would be me in another mindstate. But I was digging the diva that night. 3 weeks ago I walked out of the Iron & Wine show after 3 songs. It was like being at an emo funeral. wretched. So....travel plans yet? xoxo CH
from emeraldtiger :
joanne- one question: do you inject meth. or take it in tablet form? methotrexate scares me a bit to be honest, b/c it's originally a chemo drug. i think my rheumie wants to do it in combo w/ remicade infusions up at johns hopkins but didn't say if it would be pills or injections. i'm still undecided. well let me know sweetie. xo (also, sorry to hear about your idiot boss.)
from peth :
please tell me more about armwarmers.
from thanksbitch :
it's funny, i was feeling apprehensive about reading it, but now it's looking like the most interesting of the bunch.
from abhorgod :
i would love to kick your ass in tennis. i like to do anything i can in the hopes of destroying people confidence. i do everything better than you!
from emeraldtiger :
hey i just wanted to wish you good luck applying to acupuncture school. i hope everything works in your favor.
from thanksbitch :
really, losing power? that makes loads of sense now. oh my god, and about the dream of your teeth falling into someone else's mouth, that made me laugh so hard. thanks for that!
from jcruelty :
that pic belongs in vice magazine's "do's"
from soupstain :
Um, yeah, sorry about that. It'll be opened up to the public gaze again next Wednesday - for reasons that will shortly become apparent. As if I would let all that hot poo talk go to waste!
from pro-keds :
thanks for the hot tip, dollface.
from emeraldtiger :
ARAJANE! BRACES?!?! just read your jan 7th entry.i grind my teeth at night and was teased mercilessly in coll. by my roommate, friends & boyfriend. i've also worn down and cracked a couple teeth b/c of it. can't they fit you with an acrylic nightguard? it works for me. also, someone i know is a head & neck surgeon/e.n.t. living in wa state. i got a superfast heartrate on all allergy/cold meds containing the decongestant pseudoephedrine HCl, so she recommended stuff like nasonex, flonase, rhinocort, or OTC afrin. it's cool b/c i had tons of samples and i'd totally put you guys in touch except she now specializes in children's ENT.
from emeraldtiger :
i mainly do ashtanga. the class i went to the other night was ashtanga, or power yoga. it's the most common type i see at gyms and health clubs. it's a great workout and should help you achieve the goals you mentioned. i also do simple hatha yoga at home(mellow, basic poses at your own pace) upon waking and sometimes after a long day. i've tried iyengar, which is good for beginners b/c of the slower pace and use of props. some people consider this the best type for women to practice. if you're completely new, sample a few classes but keep in mind that a lot are hybrids that combine approaches. haven't tried bikram (not sure i want to) or kundalini (sounds interesting). HINT: swimming regularly also complements and enhances your practice of yoga.

from emeraldtiger :
oh i remembered what my question was: saw your new guestbook. very nice. which do you use now--your notes or guestbook?
from emeraldtiger :
hey thanks for the note. you're right. maybe it's not so bad to have someone you might know here. not such a big deal, i guess. sorry to hear about your experience at the ear nose throat specialist. i can SO relate! there are definitely doctors out there with *really* shitty bedside manners, etc. there was something i wanted to ask you but it slipped my mind. oh well, take it easy.
from emeraldtiger :
arajane--i'm so relieved to know that you're not bothered by the fact that i came upon your diary and then figured out your real life identity. i felt *awful* and totally agonized over what to tell you when i learned that we went to the same school and realized that i could connect this diary to you. it's probably only normal for you to wonder who on earth i am and be incredibly curious (for all i know you could be scouring your yearbook and scratching the top of you head trying to figure this out). to answer your question, i know OF you but don't actually know you. (if you think about it, at a school like mhc it's easy to know of people's names or recognize people only by face even though you don't know their name). i think we may have met during 1st yr. orientation but our paths didn't really cross during college probably b/c we lived in different dorms and traveled in different circles and majored in different subject areas. the dorms i lived in include ham, mead and buckland. oh, and now that i mention that, i recall partying in porter during senior yr. where a bunch of people were talking about whether anyone else from their h.s. had gone to mhc or if they were the only one, and some girl (i think she's a year or two younger) mentioned your name. i can relate a lot of the things you write about in your diary, and it seems that you have a lot of similar interests as i do, so it's a shame we didn't know each other back in school. in any case, please do take care of yourself!
from emeraldtiger :
well wow! i went to the same school! your note really took me by surprise b/c i don't think i ever expected to meet someone who went to the same college as i did here on diaryland. i hope it doesn't leave you feeling as awkward as i felt. guess it's not that big a deal to me though, given that i go by a username rather than my real-life name to protect my identity. however it's a small alumnae community and from reading some of my entries you can probably guess that i have been dealing with a struggle that sometimes leaves me feeling ashamed when i think of how i compare to my friends from college. oh well. i randomly stumbled upon your page via another member's, but have since read more of your entries and really do love your layout and sense of humor. you're almost done with the math/sci courses and next semester will fly by faster than you can imagine! take care.

from jetbot :
oooh... my hastily-put-together xmas card kind of pales in comparison to the super awesome package you sent me but i'm glad you like it! you got my email about the package, right?
from emeraldtiger :
thanks for your note! to answer your question: i went to school in the northeast--massachusetts to be specific. it's a really great place and i have a soft spot in my heart for new england. i have only read several of your entries so far and am guessing you're currently a student? i wanted to wish you good luck applying to acupuncture school. acupuncture really is *amazing*. if you haven't already, get ahold of the book "between heaven and earth". my acupuncturist is letting me read a copy right now. it's pretty comprehensive. take care, --emeraldtiger
from fancylady :
those metal ring gift tags totally give me a boner. it's funny how being crafty seems like it would be this simple, economical thing--then you've chasing all over for supplies, and you end up spending twenty bucks to wrap a twelve dollar gift. oooh, that martha, and her svengali-like hold on our psyches!
from emeraldtiger :
hi there! i have linked to your site a few times from a couple of my favorite diaries. although i've only read some of your entries, your diary just looks super cute. keep it up! i was especially intrigued by the fact that you referred to acupuncture in a recent entry.
from kittybukkake :
Yikes, Jenna Jameson! I don't think she'd want to play me. Thanks for yr nice note!
from weeb :
holy shit look at me blab
from weeb :
ach! meine arajane! (don't say that outloud, or try to make that rhyme) i checked my notes because you had notes and yes, you are definitely dispensing wisdom about the mom thing- it's never as bad as i think. it's like an instant ticket to short-fused weeb. a little valium and living 3000 miles away has been just the thing. man! you're a half marathoner! you rock the casbah like no one else! and you know what, job suck can really get you down. when i was last feeling like that, i made an effort to not care, and it helped. :( i'm not sure if that would work for you, but really honey, it's just work. once you leave, you'll be fine. i left $$ work for <$ work, and it sucked. now i am working for $ and doing something i like, and it's great! but the period of unemployment was pretty bad. i only hope you can skip the middle step when you transition from i'm-a-zombie.com. love. and back stretches. weeb
from jcruelty :
congratulations. did you ever read "the long walk" by stephen king aka richard bachman?
from asteroidbelt :
GOOOOOOOD LUCK!!!!
from kittybukkake :
Good luck tomorrow! Congratulations!
from emeraldblaze :
Hi, I realized that I was mad at people that would view my diary but never leave me a message. Silly me! I relized I do the same thing. So here I am changing my ways :o) You have a nice diary, and anyway enjoy and keep updating.
from asteroidbelt :
get welll soon.
from jetbot :
wow. you have such a nice long neck. it's very becoming!
from kittybukkake :
Oh Ara Jane dear, you are lovely and your up-hair looks spectacular!
from jetbot :
i cry everyday when i check the mailbox and yer package isn't there. ha haha ha just kidding. it takes me years to mail things too.
from jetbot :
congratulations on getting a lab partner!! and once again, i can soooo relate.
from jetbot :
i can relate to that entry on so many levels. does that 12-year-old spazzy thing ever go away? i mean, does that still happen when yer 50?
from pro-keds :
I really do love the way you write, And, well, your love of tennis, scrabble, Daniel Clowes, Suave....what's a boy to do? As for Seattle, email me at chall@redken.com for an explanation, svp!
from kittybukkake :
You know, not one of those descriptors makes me say "Aha! Furry." But maybe that's just the thing: they walk among us. I have actually been emailing with a few Furries re: my book, and there is nothing in the emails, either, that throws down that Furry flag. But keep an eye on your Furry officemate. Maybe he'll wear that special suit again for Halloween!
from kittybukkake :
Office Furry, hm? I wonder what the telltale signs are (other than the animal suit, of course. Dare I ask what his job is? Also, does he read comix? Have lots of plush in his cubicle? All of these signs could point to yes.
from planetqueen :
I really wish that nothing had made you cry.
from rollerqueen :
Bah, the cow beat me to it and said it all. It was truly excellent of you. Thank you SO much. (the cd is wonderful. it makes me want to d-a-n-c-e) xxx
from planetqueen :
You are the sweetest ever. Thank you so much for the lovely parcel you sent to Rebecca. You have made her very happy. It is the loveliest thing. I am one happy mummy!
from rukus :
So i really need to get around to looking around here more often. 10/1/02: i edit & write. tech savvy a plus. the experience...well i write when i don't cook. bushy beard? more like a mountain man! sense of humor depends on the weather. i'll kick your ass in ms pacman. i lend cds like i was a stranger giving candy. lunch works well, as long as it comes in a brown paper bag. if only a few thousand miles didn't seperate the west from the east. brennen.
from kittybukkake :
Notemeal!
from jcruelty :
i also cannot look at the pictures! this is an outrage!
from jetbot :
i can't look at the pictures.
from asteroidbelt :
thanks ara jane!
from rukus :
how the hell are you? it's been ages since i've come back here and i miss it do dearly (i.e. your diary). hope life treats you well as well as the neighbors. brennen.
from kittybukkake :
You are sweet like a pie, A-to-the-J. I know I owe you an email. Kitty

i thought your first line said "run for the hills" like iron maiden. hahahaha. what's wrong with being f-a-t?
from rollerqueen :
Uh, 34" chest I guess. I hope that's not hugely grossly f-a-t
from rollerqueen :
No, I'm being sincere. I think it sounds lovely.
from rollerqueen :
'pink and brown argyle sweater vest'!! These are words that send me into fits of envy.
from irishpixie :
Hey .. totally jealous of your holiday. Your diary is great, I'm really enjoying reading up ..
from planetqueen :
Thank you for the postcard. Somehow the dog didn't eat it! Glad you had a good trip.
from narkoleptic :
Hey arajane thanx for sending that note to me it was very kind it makes me feel wanted( i think, come to that i don't think really) of you and becca does make a good friend doesn't she? She is caring and if it wasn't for her I would never have read you diary and joined up to this internet address :) :) :) <3
from jetbot :
i'm jealous of yer holiday. have fun!
from thanksbitch :
yeah little darlings! i used to watch that all the time. yeah i thought most people knew about it, but apparently only us cool girls know what's up!
from asteroidbelt :
i would like a postcard. yay!
from ak28 :
2527 13th ave south sea wa 98144 have fun xoa
from jetbot :
i think she's magical or something. that's the only explanation i can come up with. na na na...
from fishmael :
gosh gee thanks, arajane! I'm flattered you find my entries worth peeking at...honestly I haven't been in much of a hi-octane compositional mood so the short bits tide me over until the realm of the marvelous slaps me silly. I LOVE reading your entries! They are like japanese candies.
from narkoleptic :
Hey you're friends with rollerqueen? She's cool isn't she? She is my friend too and she goes to my school. Where do you live?
from asteroidbelt :
we don't own a plunger either. hmmmm.......
from jetbot :
oh yeah and yer right, bullets are good. and fall is better than summer because the i don't like being too hot and fall clothes are more attractive than summer clothes. yay for sweaters!
from jetbot :
ha ha ha haha ha. yer poop entry made me laugh. i'm always paranoid about pooping at other people's houses. especially mr.sweets' parents house because they have this stupid low-flow toilet and you have to flush it like a hundred times to make everything go down. i hate that!
from soupstain :
If I'm not too late, may I humbly suggest that you check out the Catacombs in Paris. Underground tunnels with walls made of bones and an entrance in the evocatively named Place d'Enfer. It's the ultimate goth tourist attraction.
from asteroidbelt :
oooh. the new postcard i'm sending is way better. that one is kinda sucky and one of the first i made.
from calpico :
your drinky crow makes me so, so, so jealous!
from asteroidbelt :
yer welcome
from jetbot :
ah thank you. i'm a glutton for compliments. and by the way... i'm kinda squirrely about flying too and my parents are both pilots! in fact i come from a long line of aviation nerds. so yeah, yer normal and stuff.
from asteroidbelt :
yer the sweeeetest. you want a postcard or something???
from mocoso :
ativan is wonderful stuff....better flying through chemistry.

from jcruelty :
congrats on finishing the triathalon! also, re: the note below about finding pants at goodwill: i am a boy, and on sunday i desperately needed to buy pants for reasons too complex to get into here. so i ran into goodwill and you know what? i could not find a SINGLE pair of pants (old man or otherwise) that fit me!! it is an outrage. i am size 30-32, and apparently that makes me some kind of freakish alien creature because no such pants existed. also i think it's weird that women's sizes just have one number. finally: i am feeling mondo restless lately and have been thinking about weekend trips i could take. my friend andy lives up in seattle so i was thinking maybe next month or the one after, i'll fly up. so my question is, if i do, are we gonna HANG? /ROMP? ps if you email me the answer to this, i will respond by telling you a funny story about mail fraud.
from rollerqueen :
I love my new layout too. Dorset was OK-ish, I suppose. Relaxing but very cold. Billy Bragg lives in Essex, I couldn't imagine living in Dorset. Four nights is enough. Or maybe it would be different in a house and not a tent that is about to collapse. Oh well, I think I'm rambling.
from jinxremoving :
one of the principal joys of being a boy is going to goodwill, finding old man pants, and having them work.
from soupstain :
Man, isn't that just the way? I was hoping that I'd be able to use my newfound Japanese Amazon skills to impress my friends too, but I guess that's down the drain now. Ah well, it'll make it easier to order the Gloomy Bear video at least...
from jcruelty :
we had remarkably similar bikram experiences, i think. and scars are sexy. <-- NOTE: although i left this note on sarah's journal by accident, i meant it for you. i am rampantly leaving notes all over the place. a trail of notes in my wake
from lemonaide :
YO me and the fam are off to visit portland and the coast but we'll be back in seattle for the weekend maybe we could chill pinball-style then?
from lemonaide :
ok. :)
from lemonaide :
however i am not planning on showing up at your doorstep like a creepface. just thought id clarify.
from lemonaide :
tomorrow ill be in seattle with the fam and i have a present for you!
from ak28 :
we want an <i>update</i>.
from mifune :
so did you like me better as a boy or a girl?!! *sigh, i'd like a pal like pal. i miss my own kitty so much.
from lemonaide :
LAST SUMMER, i had a similar agenda wherein i made it my business to go to every carwash in the kalamazoo area. there are exactly twenty. i was then going to write and distrubute a handbook with ratings and etc. man i feel like a jerk happy super late birthday
from jcruelty :
i've never really played tennis, but i play racquetball. how would you say they compare? for me it seems like tennis would be less fun, because you have to chase the ball around if you miss it, whereas racquetball occurs in a confined space so the ball never really goes anywhere.
from jetbot :
i really like your tennis thingy. it's cool. and it makes me want to go play tennis.
from pro-keds :
Hey - as you may be aware its Mr. Absinthian's b-day coming up and well, I'm gonna miss it this year. I was wondering if you had formulated any plans?
from mifune :
crab with the golden claws is my favourite too! your diary is fantastic!
from ikahana :
birthdays fit so much better the day after, once one has time to get used to the fit and style of it all. consider yesterday nothing more than the discomfort of new shoes, and consider today a wonderful walk in the park, or a jaunt on the tennis court if you will, with slightly broken in and now comfortable new shiny shoes. splendid post-birthday wishes to you!
from fishmael :
Poor pookie girl! Allow me slip a virtual explosion of birthday tomfoolery under your door. when you are feeling better we can go out and play pin the tail on the donkey and swat the pinata... Coincidentally, You happen to share a birthday with my step brother Danny who is exactly your age but is married with two kids AND the sweet little girl next door, Grace, who is 10 and had 12 of her girlfriends over for games & cake & ice cream today. And your diary about the family holds familiar shadows. Maybe we'll tlak over milk teas someday... birthday hugs & kisses rodney
from jinxremoving :
happt birthday you crazy kid
from planetqueen :
Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you Happy birthday Arajane Happy birthday to you!
from mocoso :
happy b-day. hope it is boozy-berry good.
from jcruelty :
happy muthafucking birthday! fuck!
from asteroidbelt :
happy birthday!
from asteroidbelt :
i know how you feel about old family showing up out of nowhere. completely blindsiding you. when i turned 19 my biological father decided to call after not having any contact with me or my mother in 14 years. it hurt a lot. and in the end i chose not to talk to him again. it was just easier on my heart and my brain. i sometimes regret not making more of an effort back to him but i just can't do it. it's hard and i hope it works out well for you.
from lemonaide :
if you give me your address...ill give you a postcard
from mocoso :
dreamy diary...even if you didn't like 'donnie darko'. ehem.
from ak28 :
i submitted a sev-2 ticket to get your face scrubbed!
from jetbot :
shorty's is the best place ever. pinball + beer holders = heaven.
from rollerqueen :
Tintin! Wow. I liked 'Cigars of the Pharoah' and 'Tintin in Tibet' best. I used to have them all.
from jcruelty :

from sexxxiness :

from jinxremoving :
japanese? three words: mad capsule markets
from rollerqueen :
Don't I just have the nicest handwriting you've ever seen?
from vegetababy :
Hello person I don't know. THE AWFUL TRUTH RULES! Thats all.
from rukus :
my lack of speed will be made up in a spectacular letter, don't get me wrong. i noticed that you have ira glass as one of your favorite authors...does he write as well? i am a sucker for this american life. it has come to a point where i have gotten my fellow cooking mates at my job to listen with me every weekend. anyways, enough jibber jabber, take care of yourself. you'll find something in your mailbox soon. brennen.
from jetbot :
i like yer diary. i'm gonna add you to my favourites.
from madde :
woah! im not the only one in this world that is accident prone. my cat is friendly, but shes hyper. this morning she played with her "mouse" loudly in my bedroom for about two hours. then started doing laps around my room (jump on my desk-to floor-on the chair-leap on table-on me/bed-swat my face a few times-to floor-back to desk). she did that for a few times. i swear shes on drugs.
from madde :
your poor kitty
from ikahana :
you see, the artist offered hope...a way out, and the kids...they were just so natural and beautiful, and...ok, so you don't have to like krydkoagaudufwejkvd et kydbeoicsoi films, the armenian princess loves you therefore so do i. and we haven't even met. ain't love grand? kisses, ikahana
from asteroidbelt :

from jcruelty :
does everyone have a childhood book memory of that kind? mine is "ultimate alphabet" by mike wilks. beautiful vaguely creepy paintings, $10,000 prize...
from asteroidbelt :
i received masquerade as a gift when i was a kid and was obsessed with it too. i might even still have it somewhere...... and that is sad to know someone found the jewel the jerky way.
from rollerqueen :
hehe, I was hoping you weren't going to be too freaked out. I found your number on some white pages website (I was just putting in all the names I could think of). I was the one trying to speak, my friend Eleanor was yelling strange things ('Fish heads!' and 'I'm PlanetQueen! Yes I am!') and my mum was just standing there looking confused. :D
from ak28 :
just reply with a +2
from rollerqueen :
your answer machine - sorry, i don't know what came over me...
from rollerqueen :
You're welcome to come and stay with us anytime, we can't promise it'll be fabulous, but it will be entertaining. -- rq + pq x
from asteroidbelt :
i never got to go to camp as a kid but as an adult i'm soooooo into it.
from soupstain :
Agh, I forgot about my promise not to write about poo again. Forgive me... although some topics really are hard to avoid, y'know. - Soup
from ak28 :
let's win this one!
from un-decided :
I L O V E your diary.
from madde :
i noticed this morning that you listed me in your fav diaries. or maybe i noticed a while back and forgot. anyways, im half way finished reading your entries, but its harry potter time. plus kittycore is going nuts in the other room and im afraid she may break something. bye
from asteroidbelt :
yay! i was admiring a hott accordian at a pawn shop the other day. nice.
from sweet-avenue :
hot hot hot! you just made me laugh so hard tea came out my nose on onto my monitor. heh. you're good like that.
from asteroidbelt :
thanks for saying i'm gorgeous.
from asteroidbelt :
you are good.
from thanksbitch :
awww! that other comment made my day. blast! oh and sorry if i put out too much info in my diary. i'm a jerk like that.
from planetqueen :
Hey, thanks. Its cool isn't it. Rollerqueen did it for me.
from asteroidbelt :
yer mix tape is so good. halo bender's snowfall is my favorite.
from jinxremoving :
being shot is a negative feeling..
you are a love and rockets fan. that makes me smile. thanks.
from soupstain :
Perhaps, subconsciously, you think of the act of writing as analagous to the act of taking a poo: evacuating the mind, as it were, rather than the bowels. That being the case it's no wonder you always need to go when you're in a bookshop. By the way, I'm not a real doctor and I'm not planning to submit this theory to the British Journal of Psychology anytime soon. A la prochaine, ma petite pomme frite...
from rollerqueen :
jamie oliver?! are you crazy?!?
from rollerqueen :
wow. thank you so much. thats all I have to say.
