from cloudy-night :
The trip that you took to the beach (c'mon man, give me a pass... I'm from Missouri) sounded like it was fun. I didn't know that there was such a thing as sand fleas, but I guess being pinched isn't as bad as being bitten or sucked for your blood. I have always heard NJ was horrible, but it doesn't seem so bad.
from alethia :
BUT DANGERSPOUSE. THE KITCHEN IS WHERE THE BUTTER IS. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO NOT EAT BUTTER, WHEN THERE'S BUTTER?!!

from whystinger :
Thanks for the note too. Hear something funny Atkins style? I can eat a single egg for breakfast and it will hold me to lunch better than having two eggs, toast and bacon. Two eggs alone is fine too. I think the carbs fuck with some of us.
from mhscutie05 :
Lol That’s your problem. You’re surrounded by people who accept you for who you are. Damn them!!! Pussy enablers! Lol
from nineofswords :
You tasty snack, you.
from mhscutie05 :
LOL Jabba the Hut? Nawww, But it seems like everyone around you doesn't want to upset you with the truth!!! Huh, now why is that? lol
from nineofswords :
Hilarious read! Atkins is a good diet! Carbs are the source of all evil. It's not fun to see bears when you are not at the zoo. That picture of the bike on its side on top of the rollers cracked me up. It tells the tale of a hasty exit. I'm glad you didn't end up as a tasty bear snack.
from blujeans-uk :
Dude! I am not preggers!
from aryssa90 :
I'm doing Atkins too! I do these cyclical Atkins binges but I'm really trying to stick with this one. I made a mock shepherds pie with cauliflower mash the other day. No bears were harmed in the making of this dish.
from gr8legs :
haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... 5/21/17
from strawberrri :
Fantastic diary entry! My mum and stepdad have one of those static bikes - it's called a turbo trainer. I <3 bears because my cuddly husband reminds me of one :)
from whystinger :
Yep, I have weight problems now too. The hardest thing for me is to break the boredom eating habit. Got any good tips for that? I was eating way too many sweets in the evening. I am on a new breakfast shake that seems to help with the sweet cravings, so only the boredom eating remains... Love the bear story.
from integrating :
great story about Atkins diet and THE BEAR!
from alethia :
Atkins, huh? Maybe I'll try it. I'm hovering around 220 right now, but with little time to work out, it's very frustrating.
from cocoabean :
But bears do like cake! However, there is usually no cake to toss into the trash....
from kelsi :
Hey now, my car is a showpiece. p.s. I *heart* radio.
from muffinhead :
I am personally glad to hear from your perspective that radio is NOT dying. I enjoy talk radio myself (tho I've never understood why music radio is still around when they play the same crap year after year - however Pandora, Sirus and the like are no better and I refuse to pay for someone else's tired playlist). Going by what *some* have said and the fact that some of my favorite things, like books and cds are slowly going the way of the dinosaur it had made sense at the time. I guess the industry is doing what most are- doing more with less(staffing). It's all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out. Engineers! Add to that anyone who designs kitchen floor plans. People who don't do the work- designing things that make NO sense to the mechanic or the cook. I've run into this far too many times in my life! I'll take your Vitamix, I'm sure you have a more complex model than I do. Mine = on/off high/low. Though honestly I knew of the other models prior to my purchase and didn't see a need for timers or speeds since really what a Vitamix does best is pulverize the crap out of everything. Timer didn't make sense either, running a blender unattended isn't a habit of mine. And mine is purple, bet yours isn't. I'm a country style rib person myself and I either dutch oven it or slow cooker them hehe. I see no shame in it, but I'm not a guy- smoke and flames are a man's job. Cast iron is no shame though, as far as I'm concerned. Ya know 3 little pigs bbq is available on Amazon...I used to sell that stuff when I was a buyer for a small novelty kitchen shop. It's good stuff. But! I've always been a fan of Bullseye Original- my love of it bolstered years later when America's Test Kitchen picked it as best/recommended and has several times since. Plus it's not $15 a bottle.Be well friend.
from newschick :
aww before i had to get the minivan to accommodate so many damn carseats, i had a rogue. fab car. i loved it!
from nineofswords :
1.) That was a disgusting and harrowing tick story. I laughed, I cried, there was something for everybody. 2.) I won't argue with your oven smoked ribs because I myself have resorted to oven cooking ribs and they were identical to the good ole fashioned smoker cooked variety. Plus, they look great in your picture!
from jarofporter :
soap trick is a good idea, but i'd still try it in the valve core & around the valve stem base.
from swordfern :
And you're totally right about her taking a retaliation picture the wrong way. She'd probably think that I was requesting to become number 6 in her polyamorous grouping!
from swordfern :
Ahhh, sorry, no offence to the Americans in the room! It's just that when a place is full of tourists, then you know that there is little desire to provide exemplary service because the customers are not likely to return anyhow... Plus they probably got a voucher for breakfast for staying in the hotel above, which would have made me far less annoyed about paying $17 for a mediocre ham and Swiss crepe (1) with uninspired plating (3 tomato slices, aforementioned wilty kale sprig). Oh - the dollar's great in Canada for you Americans right now... come on up!!!!!!!!
from jarofporter :
would you believe, i played it safe & stayed in? went to bed shortly after posting! btw, quite often if i tire is leaking down & doesn't have a puncture, it's the stupid valve stems. you might just be able to get those replaced if the tires are still good.
from alethia :
!!!!! TICKS CAN CAUSE ALLERGIES TO RED MEAT!!!! I'm not even lying. That would be worse than Lymes Disease. Radiolab did a podcast on it called Alpha Gal. It's thing! Beware!
from gr8legs :
gotta love that KC BBQ. i sent my friend a KC BBQ care package a few years ago. it shouldn't be hard in getting someone to send you more bottles. :) 5.7.17
from integrating :
HaHa! Knew you'd like that one! :P
from buffylass :
Thank you :)
from nineofswords :
The Easter bread is so pretty. I cried a little. The ham looks great too. I liked your dad story. I have a cool dad too. He's kind of my favorite person.
from integrating :
(In Oprah Winfrey's voice) You will LOVE this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhvzWoV3bso&feature=share
from kelsi :
Yeah but you're not gonna pay $500 for a new 6-disc changer, are you? I'll pay $50 for one but for $500 I could get a whole new car! After I get the new dashboard LEDs installed I'll then probably be getting hydraulics, and ground effects, and a hot tub in the back, and one of those aoogah horns just to be funny.
from gr8legs :
a pleasure as usual. 5/1/17
from integrating :
Thank you for the note...I need to go to the Dr, maybe they could up the dosage because I'm depressed a lot...I just couldn't write anything the last three months.
from linguafranca :
Ok, dish. Ham recipe, please!
from strawberrri :
Hehe, sorry but been busy moving over the past month so it's passed in a quick yet "never want to move ever again" blur! Update soon... Probably :)
from alethia :
Sooooo...I hear your dad is single. ;) I'll bring the case of wine...
from alethia :
Twenty days and no update? Where the heck are you? Don't make me come over there.
from kelsi :
No IKEA couch for me but perhaps even worse - Amazon!
from mhscutie05 :
lol Your stories I have enjoyed very much. Your wifey though, how does she put up with you? lol I can't imagine what it feels like for a flea to be bouncing around on your ear drum. > . < lol And to put two notes in one, the answer is YES. Jabba the Hefer, is single. But manages an online boyfriend from time to time. What is even creepier, is she's been eyeballing this esqueleto gringo here at work. She looks at him like the big lady from Nacho Libre at Ramses' party. lol She's ready to eat him! lol
from nineofswords :
1.) still trying to get over that fowl pun. 2.)I stayed with the cutie for a long ass time. I was under the delusion that this was a mandatory lifetime choice. Even when I did put him out of the house, we didn't do the paper work for years, so I was technically married long past the 2 year mark where I should have thrown in the towel. Regrettable.
from catsoul :
Thanks for the note. No rush about the buttons. Just you wanting to do that means a lot. Hope your Sunday has been yummy!! Peace Out. =^..^=
from jimbostaxi :
Happy Easter! May your Chocolate bunnies be fruitful and multiply :0)
from muffinhead :
and p.s. I'm glad your job for now seems to be safe. It seems radio is a dying thing. I'm curious, have you ever thought about podcasting? You did say you could talk endlessly...and you wouldn't have to talk about our doom and gloom world anymore if you didn't want to!
from muffinhead :
Cooking (and baking) does indeed fight sadness! Why I made a batch of wonderful peanut butter cookies and it kicked the cheeriness up a point or two (granted I'm still in the negative but I'm much higher up than I was mind you). Also, butter, bacon and frying always make something better. Was reading your entry about batter. Agreed. I love squash blossoms lightly battered and fried. Yum. And couldn't be simpler to make.
from nineofswords :
Some of the things you did to that poor chicken could be classified as war crimes. Tasty, tasty war crimes.
from mhscutie05 :
Ahh yes, slimy snots are an acquired taste. You should know, you're a chef right? lmfao Hubby bought me a NoseFrida. Best tool for any mama bear. lol He gags all the time when I mention anything slimy. And I respond by laughing at him. Funny you mention constipation, because I have a short story for that too. lol Very similar to what you did with your cat and q-tips! lmfao butt the ending result being a small explosion, in the face. -__- lol
from mhscutie05 :
LOL Have you developed a phobia to the penguins since then? lol I just finished reading ‘Mule!!! Nag!!!’ I probably shouldn’t read your entries at work because that one had me literally Laughing Out Loud. That doesn’t help. :P But who gets attacked by Vultures!!! Really?!! And then raping your own cat! WHAT?!! lol Oh god, I hope I don’t sound like a stalker. -__- *face palm* lol Thank you for sharing your unfulfilled, boring and mundane life experiences. But mostly thanks for your note, much appreciated. Out of all my fears of dying, drowning being number 1, having someone read my stuff is one of them. lol I just hope I don’t sound like an idiot smoked out on crack with 15 straight hits of acid and bath salts after being awake for 115 hours straight. O.o
from kelsi :
Better than the apple consortium, "Big Apple". Have you visited a juice aisle lately?
from yellow-ninja :
No wonder your post-elbow surgery convalescence was so difficult for you!
from yellow-ninja :
You can scroll with one hand. Don't be lazy.
from yellow-ninja :
I mean, if you can distribute some free literature with Beans in your mind, you absolutely should. But I think I may have fixed the issue.
from whystinger :
Danger, I am glad that you are still employed. I do understand some of what you are going through as I went through that when I left Honi for the first time and the company I worked for went almost bust. It sounds like your company may have a plan or is working on getting a new account and needs to keep folks on hand. Sit tight, conserve cash, pay down debt, update your resume and plan in case the worse happens. I have a feeling that our company is working on or courting other networks and will need more folks. When my company did go bust, I was put into a job I didn't really want, but ended up really enjoying and being excellent at. Blessings come at unexpected times. You will land on your feet regardless.
from mhscutie05 :
First, glad to hear you still have a job! Lol I hate those times man. It’s stressful, just don’t let it get to you. You don’t want those ulcers from your penguin days to come back. Lol And secondly: YES, I told you I’m reading it FROM THE BEGINNING! That’s what happens when you post your shit on the internet. *shrugs shoulder* Lol MASOCHIST!!!! *gasps* well I never… lol ok ok, so what, I get turned on when men cry in pain. Jk lol *evil grin* I have been called much worse, but kid? Haha wow, thank you! That made me feel younger. Usually I’m the one calling these little hoodlums I work with kids. Lol Funny thing, I’m not much older than they are. I’m also glad you didn’t say ‘baby girl’. Don’t know why, but it just grinds my gears! Lol As for the creativity – in writing – I think I will use your style. ‘no editing, no content, no worries’. What better way to just let the juices flow, and let that shit fly! “Parental advisory” stickers all over this bitch! Inspiration! Lol *drops the mic*
from alethia :
Hey, if you find yourself unemployed, I'm in the market for a housewife. Duties are very light, I promise. Primarily food making and cocktail shaking, with the occasional load of laundry. No weird stuff. You wife can come too. I'll make up a cot in the basement for the two of you. ;)
from mhscutie05 :
I’m hanging on strong! Kinda. lol Finding time enough to be creative can be hard at times, but so far it hasn’t been excruciating. I have found myself reading your diary though, merely because of curiosity. So I started from the beginning. 1.) I love your wife 2.) Reading your diaries is like watching an R rated version of Jerry Seinfeld. Lol Don't stress too hard, don't need those ulcers to come back and haunt you. lol If you're doing what you love to do, then stick with it! It'll work out. There are more worse things that can happen.
from kelsi :
Dang, sorry you're going through this. Hope it works out for you. Sometimes the worst thing happens, though - but we still manage to make it through, as we are magnificent and resilient animals.
from narcissa :
ugh, sorry, that's super stressful. Thinking of you.
from life-my-way :
Duuuude, that sucks. Nineofswords is probably right, you could make some bank doing voiceovers. Damn shame that being funny and smart and awesome doesn't pay better than it does. Makes no sense, really. Dang.
from barefootruby :
oh yeah, and shite that you heard the news second-hand rather than direct from the management. But that often doesn't change much this side of the pond.
from barefootruby :
Sounds line a bummer, but here's hoping everything works out OK one way or another. I guess one area UK-land is ahead of US-land is in employment law. There has to be a consultation period before redundancies, there has to be 28 days notice (or pay in lieu) and you have to be given a minimum of one week's pay for every year worked (one and a half for old people like us). And severance pay is tax free.
from catsoul :
So a small hiccup. I won't say it could be worse, I so dislike when people say that or write that. I am glad you have your wife and cooking/baking. I don't know what to say here. Just hang in there. You and your wife could come here if need be. We have lots of room and you can commune with Mother Earth. Take Care man. Peace Out. =^..^=
from candoor :
Tragedy or pending tragedy gets such an unfair read on April 1. The gullible leap to sympathy and worry. The cautious say nothing, risking the faux pas of appearing like they don't care, and return a day or two later to see if it was for real. The rest of us fall in the middle, wondering what to do. Maybe the rest of us are silently waiting in that second category. Anyway, may the axe not fall on your tree and if it is not too late to ask where your voice can be heard, remind us all... I'd love to listen.
from nineofswords :
I've got a couple of serious suggestions for you about what to do with yourself if you get kicked to the employment curb: Set up a "Voice 123" account and start doing voice over work. If you make a good profile and upload some demos of your voice, commercials, announcing, etc. you can build up a production house or voice over business from your home. The sky is the limit. Secondly, why are you not a chef? You ARE a chef and you could be paid for that. Start Cheffing, Chef.
from whystinger :
Thanks, Danger. My Mother came though the surgery well and the doctors were pleased. Afterwards was a bit tense due to a few things, but she got through those things and is on the mend again. I hope either you make out fine with the loss of the customer, or hopefully, it is an April Fool's joke.
from life-my-way :
Heavens, man, I hope this is an April Fools deal. Also, this is why I hate April Fools. All of which reminds me that 4/1 is the date I picked to be the puppy's birthday so it's good that I took him out lake swimming and frolicking and junk. Please let this be fake.
from aryssa90 :
Ugh that's terrible. I'm really sorry and I'll think positive (and only slightly naughty) thoughts for you. Keep us updated!
from nineofswords :
I don't get by New Jersey very often, but I'm happy to know that my bread dreams could be fulfilled there. Thanks for the kind offer. :-)
from catsoul :
I thank you a zillion billion times. =^..^=
from kelsi :
Thanks, son - right back atcha
from catsoul :
hi. clothing or craft buttons. Granddaughter wants to collect them, I am thinking we can make collage pictures with them, or glue them into a picture on a wall in her bedroom. The imagination is always open to all creativity. I am big into making altered art. There is one wall in our hallway that I have made into a mural for granddaughter. As she gets taller it gets taller. This Summer I told her she will be helping me on the mural. Peace Out. Oh, thanks for the inquiry man! Appreciate it. =^..^=
from yellow-ninja :
WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?!
from nineofswords :
Very amusing post. My nephew plays a kid game and finds ways to cheat it in similar fashion. Also, you should know...That bread you baked is going to haunt my dreams.
from mhscutie05 :
Oh boy. *face palm* As you can tell I've never had to respond to ANY notes. lol But thank you for the encouragement. I'm not looking to write a best sellers, but just something! I'm also looking forward to future entries as well! lol I'm just not thrilled about my earlier entries. -__- But I do enjoy a few of yours that I've read. :)
from gr8legs :
you had me at paella! and again, entertaining as usual. 3.27.17
from catsoul :
OMG I used to play Animal Crossing. Not anymore. Moved on to FarmVille. Been playing that since Zygna started it, way back when. I understand your need to play. Gotta go farm! Peace Out. =^..^=
from yellow-ninja :
Your appreciation is much appreciated. I wouldn't normally be one to complain - less bounce on a run is a good thing, after all. It's just no bounce at all is not as much fun.
from raven72d :
Acme is okay; Jolie Pearl downtown is better. I'm always and ever a Japanophile...and I miss the rings here at D-Land.
from aryssa90 :
Um I'm a little in love with your wife. I need a husband like her. My furnace is currently held together with a zip tie of that gives you any indication of the home owner skills my household possesses.
from yellow-ninja :
I would love to eat an entire dinner! I should warn you, though - your post-show entertainment is pretty bleak, given the state of things around here. We've disagreed on what passes for mountains before, but I'm sure we'd not have any arguments about these particular molehills.
from mhscutie05 :
Hello fellow member of the community. Yes it has been almost 10 years. I can't believe it myself. I just happen to browse some things back in the day and ended up here. lol No, I did not follow the manga dream. But I do hope to be an author. I have horrible grammar skills which will come as a challenge, but I can dream. lol Thanks for the welcome back. I look forward to being more active here. :)
from eloira :
Thanks for that! I disappeared down that internet rabbit hole for a while... That's the sort of thing! Specifically from the Final Fantasy series, but I also have the soundtracks for a few of the others too
from kelsi :
One day we will be cool again. But until then, *like*. Also, the kids these days aren't using end punctuation
from eloira :
It's one of the Distant Worlds concerts. Computer game music, but it's beautiful! There are some clips on the internet of various bits and pieces from over the years, but it's a 30th anniversary so a mish-mash of styles. Can't wait!
from nineofswords :
Thanks for the pity. Just what the doctor ordered. You know... I actually live in the house of my dreams. I'm not ready to give it up and I would much rather get a summer home in Colorado and keep this home. I am torn between family proximity, my gypsy yearnings to go far away, and my wonderful house that I live in now. And I guess you are right about me not giving the wife search enough effort. That whole hetero thing has really thrown a wrench in it.
from nineofswords :
I think I have the same scourge you have. You are the lucky one though, because your wife is awesome and I don't even have a wife, much less an awesome one. I only have the plague. Pity me.
from narcissa :
ugh, i know, right? netflix is the worst. hope you feel better!
from misfitstray :
If your wife ever gets fed up with you, I'll marry her at once!

your wife is so badass. I want to be her when i grow up and have a water heater.
from catsoul :
3.22.17 You have got a good wife with skills, so I hope you made a super duper superb dinner for her. Hope you feel better. Take Care. Peace Out. =^..^=

I don't think Dexter would make a suitable turkey substitute under any circumstances, but Jax on the other hand... he's a meaty fellow.

Wow that is a lot of corned beef and fixins'!! You are a good husband. Oh and thanks for the compliment you wrote me, appreciate it. We built sand castles with our mittens on today and than swinging on the swingset for I swear, had to be over an hour. Enjoy your leftovers. Peace Out. =^..^=
from aryssa90 :
I think that the real question here is which one out of the 3 was the best? Inquiring minds need to know.

What about powdered sauces?
from ladyofjazz :
That box cake swap is really bad news. Oh the regret.
from narcissa :
i was never too devout, but i definitely traveled the catholic to atheist route. Mostly no regrets except for just the kind of situation i described. [ps - sausage gravy is just what living in the south was like. i feel your pain. I love nashville and i loved new orleans but green things are few and far between if you're visiting]
from eloira :
Good gods, not box pudding... Erm... Best of luck? We gift the stuff, but make our own mixes rather than actually wrap bought pudding-in-a-packet, because too many reasons... As for the game - a good one!! I have just started a new one in which the scenery and music are better than gameplay and my character is an android for whom emotion is actually prohibited. So far, so good!
from alethia :
When my roommate declared she was going to bake a cake (shortly after I moved in), and she meant BOXED cake, I think I gasped so hard I folded the space-time continuum. Needless to say, no BOXED cake has ever graced this kitchen while I've lived here, and she's bloody well learned how to bake at least a basic cake.
from kelsi :
Even though we've had our fair share of winter over here in this neck of the woods and it's been beyond thrilling to finally see curbs again, I'm super duper jealous of your giant winter storm. I want three feet of snow! Gah! I hope you enjoy it. Anyway, think of me what you will, but a couple weeks ago I bought pistachio pudding mix at the store. It was delicious. AND it wasn't even Jell-O, it was the store brand. I've never made pudding from scratch but I suppose I'm sufficiently shamed now to look it up. Thanks, bucko - stay safe.
from cocoabean :
It's not gonna snow in San Diego!
from joistmonkey :
I am disappointed that your big long food word didn't turn out to have mole roast in it. Eat the little burrowing bastards. Still, at least I know what chicken mole is now, and roast vegetable terrine sounds mightyfine. But not as nice as roasted rodent.
from annanotbob2 :
Thanks for your note - I replied to it on the wordpress account, trying to lead you over there where we can have a conversation... I was aghast at your tale of the craft fair, which your writing enabled me to visualise all too bloody clearly. Seeking therapy.
from kelsi :
A few years ago I accidentally bought sacred basil and it was a summer-long nightmare. Since then I've been paranoid that I won't have enough sweet or Genovese basil so I buy packets of it whenever I see it. I agree, you can never have too much basil! I usually plant two or three basil plants for each tomato plant I have. And I usually have upwards of 20 tomato plants. I don't have a large garden. I need to think about things.
from aryssa90 :
You're still one of my favorite adults. I'm jealous of all your sexy times. I think I'm struggling with the hobby thing because I am kind of a control freak and I like doing things I'm good at so, trying new things is difficult for me since I'm obviously not going to be fantastic at them right away. I'm taking up the cello again and I'm looking into a painting class. I'm also looking into archery so, there are options! That's a start. Baking would ultimately be something I would LoVE to try but it kind of conflicts with the whole losing weight thing right now. I feel like my hobby should be eating delicious food you make ;)
from gr8legs :
even though i was born in cow country, i'm not the one for bbq, although, i do enjoy a plate of gates' steak fries (those things are amazing!). once i had a taste of seafood i've been a changed woman and it was rare i ventured towards anything else. 3.1.17
from yellow-ninja :
It's such a relief to have actual, actionable plans! And to have the go-ahead to take ibuprofen again. Tylenol doesn't do shit. Thanks for the note, and enjoy your trip!

Haha we were all amazed that the NHS doesn't provide the sieves - maybe they couldn't fill the job position of Poo Sieve Autoclaver. Hope the arm's doing OK.

I wouldn't forget you guys. You're some of my favorite people and what kind of friend would I be if I didn't give you all some cash and hit the town with a limo filled with hookers and drugs? Not a good one, right? After that, I will complain to you all that we are part of the problem and need to fix it.
from aryssa90 :
That just sounds delicious. I will have to tell you how they turn out. I really love baking and I have a crap ton of recipes but I have never found the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Perhaps my search has ended?! Stay tuned for more! As one of my favorite adults, I have a question. How does an adult go about finding...hobbies?
from aryssa90 :
I am just flush with happiness and well, the actual ability to flush! How are you doing? I need a perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe! Something gooey and delicious!
from raven72d :
Thanks--- much appreciated!
from yellow-ninja :
Thanks, man. Platitudes may not seem like much, but they are helpful. My sister's not a bad person - she's just often self-centered and very mean. If you take a utilitarian view of morality, she's probably a net good. I must have been a pretty bad person in my last life to earn my recent string of rotten luck. Here's hoping I get to be a butterfly the next time around.
from narcissa :
LLLOLLOL @ your entry (2/21) i guess this was all inevitable [and yes! I would have marched wherever i was but it was way better to get to do it in DC for this one. i saw your entry and I do think that you could have gone - i think seeing all the supportive men there was really just as important as the march itself]
from alethia :
Oh, yes. Yes we do.

You too, sweet pea xx
from kelsi :
Yes, good, I like to instill a sense of shame in my readers.
from whystinger :
Thanks for the note, the plan is to wok toward self voiding without self cath. Still self cath is much, much better than wearing a "closed catheter system and a bag of piss on one's leg... I went for a second opinion and liked this urologist and switched. He is sharp and has moved me further and faster in two weeks than the previous urologist did in a few months. Love the short entry ton the Wallkill River Wildlife Refuge. I used to hike there occasionally and have some great and funny memories. Perhaps it is getting near the time for me to get up that way and visit some old friends. I have been trying to do that for a few years.
from cloudy-night :
*smacks forehead* I forgot to mention what veggies I like. There aren't many, so here goes. I like: Green beans, bean sprouts, carrots (sort of) spinach (slightly), jalapenos, red peppers ( green and yellow too) and that's it. Not a lot, I know... But some is better than none.

1. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Just be glad you have the opportunity to hunt women. 2. How timely... a post about poor reporting. 3. I've noticed a real devolution in news articles over the past few years. I find a lot of typos and spelling errors where you would not expect to see that sort of thing. I think this is from internet reporting where the editing is apparently non-existent.
from cloudy-night :
Damn it all! I was just about to mount up and head your way. Hunting down women in the wild with a shotgun seemed like it would be thrilling. I was going to be on some Ernest Hemmingway shit, oh well... There are some vegetables I like, I just don't know what to pair them with ( besides rice ). I know you're a good cook, if there are any simple recipes that you know of, could you send them my way?
from jarofporter :
hey! didn't mean to imply anything negative - you're generally right, and i realize i overthink things. sometimes i don't when i'm in the moment, but it helps to have that reminder. keeps me from driving myself crazy. guess what i'm saying is, thanks for reminding me i should mellow out sometimes! :-)
from muffinhead :
You said raw lemons...had known someone with a very serious food allergy, NO PRESERVATIVES, good luck with that right? Everything had to be made from scratch with all natural ingredients. For her, the plainer the food, the better or it WOULD result in a trip to the hospital, as in life threatening. She would eat out poised with an epi needle over a thigh and a cellphone close at hand after interrogating the waiter about how the food is made and preserved. No way to live. Anyway I thought I'd bring this up, LEMON JUICE is often used as a preservative in the food service industry especially when it comes to produce and even chicken. My old aquaintance couldn't even eat that. Maybe THAT is what your NewWifey is reacting to with that taco salad.

Good advice! Merci!

Yeah, I hope it -IS- a start at a new life. thank you. :)
from strawberrri :
Awesome chicken stock! I am lazy though and just use a cube. My life was revolutionised when I discovered you can crumble the cube whilst it's still in its little foil packet, rather than crumbling it in your hands and getting stock bits all over them. Thanks for your note a while ago too - sorry it's taken nearly a month to reply :)

I would imagine that the stock made in the bain marie would be richer and would also gel when refrigerated, correct?
from annanotbob2 :
Thanks for you nice notes. I'm at wordpress, double posting too, because I can't quite leave this stupid, annoying, bloody diaryland where I started, but I like to have actual conversations with people so I'm there too annanotbob4@wordpress x
from jimbostaxi :
Thanks for noticing :9) I tried to make it slightly more cohesive I know it's not all that pretty yet but its still a work in progress. You were in my thoughts the other day i kept saying to myself that I should really drop by here and leave you a note because it's been awhile but I suck and kept forgetting. There could be more "Maggie's" if I let them in my life but my life is filled with rules and order there's no room for that kind of fun. For a brief second I let my guard down and had some fun it was a momentary lapse in judgement on my part it's safer just to shut everyone out.

Me? Overthink something? http://i.qkme.me/3oksxt.jpg

No. Last time I ate a waffle was before 1/13/2006. As for NyQuil. That is nasty crap, and I have never ever in my life taken any. So there, sticks her tongue out now at you. =^..^= P.S. Have not ingested any drugs other than my normal a.m. doctor prescribed meds. I will have to write the back story to that entry. Hey man, I never ever have said I am shallow.

Okay but seriously. How do you make a move on a virgin? Like, are they just okay with anything? It's confusing. I mean, I havent had sex in months and Im dying, dunno how he's lasted all that long.
from aryssa90 :
I haven't been ignoring you! Well, I kind of have but not in a mean way. I've just been super antisocial. Happy birthday, belatedly! Your apple apple pie was super cute and thank you for all the notes! I hope your wife feels better, the flu is going around and it is ickyyyy
from kelsi :
Yes, undercooked, and also how the crap do you hollow out apples without destroying the apples or yourself? I destroyed both. Also, I'd never made pie dough before and that wasn't super successful. And I don't have a rolling pin. All in all a fairly epic failure, but tasted good nonetheless.
from kelsi :
I attempted to make an apple pie in an apple in honor of your butthdats and it turns out it's much easier to look at pictures of apple apple pies on the internet than to make apple apple pies. But I tried! Next time will be much better.

Happy birthday dear danger, happy birthday to you!!! Enjoy your apple pies and don't catch that bug from the wifey (as I cleverly have done from my spousey). I hope this is your best year ever but, under the circumstances, I just hope we all survive to see another extravagant sponge cake someday. Someday. Happy happy oh my friend!

So, hope you don't mind, but I shared a few statements from your 1-21 with my girlfriends Monday night! They've heard me mention your entries before and how on point they are. We all say Thank you! And....now you know you've got an informal fan club down South. And they don't even read blogs! Bless their hearts!

I would bet that your phone is trackable as any other phone in the world...
from yellow-ninja :
Well, I appreciate your anger on my behalf. Though it's colossally unfair and ridiculous, it is apparently just part of What I Have to Deal With this year. Fingers crossed that next year they shuffle evaluators again, and I get one of the other six administrators, all of whom seem to live in this reality where I'm a good teacher who doesn't deserve this shit.
from misfitstray :
So, how much was that "new" phone you bought? I would guess that they are rather expensive as they are antiques. Like with record players. They would cost 50 bucks upwards in medieval times, now you can't afford to break your old devices as it would bancrupt you now to buy a new one. I can't understand why you are against new smart phones. They can be used just for calling as you like it. You don't have to use any of the other benefits it would have... Oh, and too late, my hair is cut short! Whoohoo!
from kelsi :
Thanks for the pep talks, Elbows (although your high praise for my writing and disparagement for yours are both silly). I yield to your pressure and will pursue the dream job. Great.
from aryssa90 :
Thanks! I hope I get the job too. More money is great and in these uncertain political times I need to be as middle class as possible. Hey mister, I need a lemon bread recipe. Or, you can just make me some lemon bread because I'm cute and constantly in some state of emotional turmoil?
from catsoul :
Thanks for the note man. I wrote that poem for my neighbor friend's wife across the road. She is dying from cancer. She starts chemo again on the 20th, and she wanted to come up here one more time while she still felt somewhat with it. So I have been thinking about her alot, and one night just recently I wrote that to her, for her, and then I took it over to her and we talked about it. She told me that I got it and started bawling, so then I started bawling, then her husband started bawling. After awhile we stopped and then we all had a real talk about them. I was so appreciated to be included. She told me that she isn't worried about Mikey any more because she knows as long as I stay alive, I will watch out for him, she also included my husband in this. Wow. So there you go, you know the background to this poem. I also have pain, but not at all comparable to hers. Peace Out. =^..^=

He's from Hawaii. I don't pretend to understand the spam thing. I just kinda roll with it. :P

Ha, no worries! I did get a bit ranty about it so something lighthearted was appreciated :) Don't get me wrong, I'd love a phone I could sit and stare at for hours, but... You know... There are other ways to fritter time and money. It's just nice to hear there's someone out there still that spends as little on a phone as I and gets away with it!
from eloira :
I get the 'why don't you get a REAL phone' comments every time I walk into the workplace... By someone who can't keep a newfangled one operating for more than 2 months at a time no less. I'll stick with my trusty drop-it-and-it-still-works 2008 model. I, too, like to ignore people, so I hope you never have yours ring unannounced!
from cocoabean :
I didn't have a big enough container for the number of plums I bought, so I had to make one jar of slivovitz with premium tequila.. also ran out of vodka, so we use what we have. It is equally as good as the vodka.. just thought you'd like to know... *hic*
from cocoabean :
So I made some slivovitz, the 90 days was up today. It is so freaking amazingly wonderful I can't begin to describe it. Dude, you're the man!
from jimbostaxi :
After thinking about the cost of the gift card, I walked in to the nearest liquor store and told the guy to pick a bottle of wine that was 20$ bucks and sold the best. Fuck the details the less I know about it the better thanks again for your help.

That's some pretty fantastically lazy package delivery. Maybe it was intentional - that guy/gal just wants to be fired so bad. "This time for sure!" s/he thought as s/he put the packages right where they could be demolished. I think the USPS around here gets a kick out of making me deliver the mail for them - I get my neighbors' mail and packages more often than what seems possible for innocent error and dutifully trot around delivering it. Nation-wide parcel/mail delivery conspiracy, I'm sure of it.
from aryssa90 :
Merry Christmas ya filthy animal. Just kidding. That was such a dick move for the UPS guy to do. WHo does that?! I've never delivered a package before (I much prefer to receive them) but I'm prettttyyy sure I don't have to go to package delivery school to know not to put it behind the car tires. Idiots. But hey, practice blowjobs!
from muffinhead :
Ugh! Healthcare. They really need to take the "care" out of it. Hope they sort that silly business out for you shortly. I also had a recent stint in breadland but mine wasn't as successful as yours. I have a tree full of Meyer lemons, THE BEST oranges you'll ever have in your LIFE (no joke) and White Grapefruits. The trees are about 80 years old and just dripping with fruit. I tried to make orange bread. It turned out tasting very orange-y but it was on the dryer side which baffled me. Take two will have to commence as there is just too much out there for me to resist and well, I can only drink so much juice...
from alethia :
Hey Gimpy. I hope you're getting less gimpy. We can't have a bake-off if your arms drop off, so try not to let that happen. Take care of yo'self. (I'm cursing the American healthcare system for you. I'm not sure why I care so much about it. Maybe it's like watching someone with summer tires try to drive up a hill on a snowy day.)
from bantenhut :
Those breads look fantastic! Also, I didn't go all Veronica Lake, but I finally cut my hair -- it looks very much like Hannah Hart's! :D My God, your liquid cat sounds hysterical! We humans could learn from her abundance of chill. As for the corgi video, I'm not sure if that's ZFrank or not! Just some instagrammer, maybe. I miss my corgis, too. The Corgo Dog breed is priceless. BTW, have you ever met a Great Pyrenees? They are pills, apparently, and I'm trying gradually to adopt a great pyr mix at the moment. Been volunteering at a local shelter, and I have fallen into doggie love! Also, can you make videos instead of typing? That would be far less elbow pain, right?
from yellow-ninja :
Dang. I don't even eat bread, but I would endure the sure-to-be spectacular gastrointestinal fireworks that would ensue for either of those. Nice work. Sorry about the bum wings still giving you hell. Insurance is the worst.

Oddly rounded applause for the latest story of your adventures in life. Save your hair, get another cat and dog.

I don't know if you have a Costco anywhere near you, but they make this cranberry walnut crusty rye bread that is absolutely to die for. (That is a literal statement for some of us.) If you love German breads, you should try it. I bought one the other day because it was fresh out of the oven and I just could not pass it up. It's like, in the top 5 best things I ever et.
from astitchaway :
While no one enjoys eating a mouse turd, I love that New Wifey got one over on you. I'm not sure if you've tried it yet, but peppermint oil on the opening where they are coming in usually keeps the little buggers out. They hate the smell.
from alethia :
I just thought you should know, I bought a brand new lime green Kitchenaid Pro mixer for $300. That's Canadian dollars. That's like $20 in real people money. (I'm feeling really smug about it, if you couldn't tell.)
from nineofswords :
Did the mouse turd not add a peppery bouquet that danced delicately over the tastebuds, leaving an oaky essence and crisp finish in its wake? Was it Hanta flavored? You've taken culinary daring to new heights. Well done!
from bedbunny :
My bad, apparently my head was so far up my arse that i forgot to update for 13 months.. I'm back and boring as ever! Bravo on eating the mouse shit though... I still can't work up the nerve to complete said task and check it off my bucket list. Also, did she fall for the ToiletTrap(tm)? You may have left a note for someone else post-entry, but I know spirits can communicate in the afterlife.
from muffinhead :
Dude, I just can't pretend. :-)
from kelsi :
Well thanks for making me cry, man.
from misfitstray :
As you wrote me a note I assume that your wife didn't kill you - so far. Thank you NewWifey(TM) :) Now on to your note. Do you really think that any man is worth to get in shape for? I will get in shape, but only for myself as I don't feel comfortable with my current state. And I will win that date! Come hell or high water!
from kelsi :
I too thought there would be green irradiated dead mouse bodies lining the house, but there wasn't - we had a lot of work done in the eaves this spring, pulling up floorboards etc. and there were no dead mice. Magic! The puppy is 4. He's a fun dog, always super into whatever he's doing at the moment, whether it's lunging at squirrels through fences or trying to rip tree roots out of the ground with his teeth or face-planting while catching a frisbee - hence the lack of teeth.
from swordfern :
LOL! I loved this story. I really thought that the turds were going to be from the box of tomatoes...
from yellow-ninja :
Yes, it was a doozy of a week. But it's over, and Steve claimed in my meeting he "probably" won't even review me next semester, which typically means he's giving me my passing grade and moving onto bigger and better things. That's illegal, due my probationary status (first three years in any district are considered "probationary"), but c l e a r l y Steve knows better than me on everything, so we'll see.
from bantenhut :
Casey the Wonder Corgi! An apt title for any corgi, as all corgis are truly wondrous. Wait, your cat had NO BONES? How did that work? -- I googled the famous lady you commented about. Cool. Tres glamorous!
from muffinhead :
Sorry dear, but you did deserve that glue trap on your head. I get why you thought it was a good alternative, but suffering in any of its forms for a living creature isn't cool mister! Get some barn cats! Anyhow. Thanks for the support, despite my not giving mine. Heh. (Sidenote: I love America's Test Kitchen in all its glorious forms.)

First of all, hantavirus! And second, how long do you think it'll take NewWifey to remarry one she disposes of the evidence?
from whystinger :
I deliberated in my head as to whether to name Stepfie in what I wrote. Like you, I am not sure she wanted the attention, but I decided to indicate it was her anyway and I think she would have approved anyway. I think she was rather private about the cancer as she didn't want others to worry and trip all over themselves not knowing what to say. I am particularly bummed as I may have had the chance to meet them in 2017. As her sister told me "She was keen to meet her correspondents."
from gr8legs :
Hey, i got your note about voting independent voting. thank you so much for informing me of history. i did do a google search just to make sure before i wrote my diary entry and the results that i checked reflected what i ultimately wrote. go figure that google is indeed sometimes incorrect :) hope you are doing well.
from aryssa90 :
Hold on. I just read this entry and literally broke down crying. I didn't have any way of talking to her outside of Diaryland and so I didn't get this. Are you on her facebook? I'm totally gutted right now.

Sorry about Trump, my friend. Over here, me and my friends went to bed anxious and woke up to disbelief and worry. In other words, very similar to Brexit! Hope the fall-out isn't too horrific for you guys, though they feel like hollow words right now.

yeah i think it's worse in a lot of ways. Certainly in terms of sheer numbers affected. So sickening. I can't really even comprehend it, tbh.

Glad that you are still alive! Man, it's no wonder that your elbow isn't healing when you have to change, butter and clean the containers for your food that often. Jeeeez!

Hahahaha you know something DS I was just thinking about leaving you a note and you beat me to it, I see your notes all over Dland and I kept wondering when's that porn loving MFer coming back my way.

But on a more serious note I think it's a good program to start and I hope to eventually expand it to other locations ,, that's if it all goes according to the plan. Now let me get back to moving my horsey thing ! Thanks for the note Danger wish me luck :0)

The worst part about Brian is I've known him for, like, sixteen years at that point, and I'd always felt perfectly safe around him. %100 safe. Until that night.

And the other day I was in a Value Village the other day and found a seven cup Cuisinart food processor, with all the accessories and everything...and it wouldn't power on. Those FUCKS. I was getting SO ready to be all smug in your notes. Also I'm glad you haven't had your arms amputated, even though robot arms would be pretty cool.

Yikes! You're basically just a mobile torso now! Lots of takeout from now on. Sorry about your double bum elbows. :(

Egads! So....what are you going to do now? Can you hire someone to give you a hand? Oooh if I were closer, I'd apply! I can by very helpful. And apparently I do a lot of charity work. Oh oh oh.....Then I can say I was hired to do a hand job. Ha! Hand-job! Ok, seriously.... what now? And don't sweat the weight. You're a guy. You'll lose it quickly once everything is back in motion. Guys suck like that. (PS. I don't expect a reply since you are limiting your typing. Unless you just can't help yourself ;) - or unless someone else already got the hand-job and is typing for you now)
from aryssa90 :
Take care of yourself! 11 pounds or 15 pounds, you till give good diaryland entry ;) Also, this is the impact you have had in my life: There are two coworkers who have diverticulitis and whenever I say it out loud I literally pronounce it "diverticuliiiitis" and then I get strange looks. I'm glad I met you ;)
from melodymetuka :
Take care of yourself, heal, then get rid of the weight. One thing at a time. I know how impossible it is (a doctor once told me to stop lifting when I had two preschool children and a new baby. Where do they get these ideas?), but your arms have to get better so you can do all those wonderful things that we love you for. ;-)

Here's an idea....they make voice activated programs for the computer. You speak and it writes what you say. Now about the driving, can you car pool, ok, well you would be the passenger. If you are serious about not back peddling and re-injurying your other elbow, you better commit to NOT doing what your doctor says. Sorry man if that sounds like a mom, but come on, you are only given two hands, two wrists, two elbows, you get the idea. =^..^=
from kelsi :
Thanks for all the notes, Note King! I have sprayed the powdery mildew but it's a wily adversary and proliferates despite my best efforts. My best efforts, unfortunately, come in fits and spurts, so that's probably why the powdery mildew is winning. :( Dairy Queen is so low in fat it's practically a health food. Good idea, I'm going to go get a Blizzard today. That'll fix things up.

I love your stories about cooking. I've never had the pleasure to use saffron or vanilla beans. I guess not because I can't technically afford them but because like the potential addict that I am (is why I've never drank, I have addiction in my blood and I know it, hence my caffeine and sugar addictions) I don't need to start another expensive habit.What I've never known won't bother me. On the media. You and I will have to agree to disagree. You work for media, I work for LE so we will likely always argue our positions (reasonably and without raising our voices *smile*) I *know* that there are those seemingly very few media sources that DO only report cold hard facts. If you are among those I commend and thank you. The real matter is that one DOES have to dig for them. Inflammatory reporting is front and center and the simple fact is hummanity is lazy and will take the easiest source above looking for what is real. I guess you can also say I'm taking the easier road by using what is front and center but it is what MOST people see/hear. You point out NPR but I counter with it depends on where you are(and I do listen to NPR among others, just not lately). My area, fairly liberal, hence my NPR (barring some of the National Shows) reflects that liberalism. If I were in a more conservative area, it would likely reflect that. So because people seem to want to Burger King their media outlets and get it their way media sources bend to their audiences. I get it. It grows their followers. However, I don't want labeled news. I want facts. *I* will determine in my own mind how to label them and what I think. I don't want to be spoon fed someone's opinion and I certainly don't need the internet comment pages and the twitter feeds rolling along the bottom of my screen. I have a friend that believes the only way to get the most unbiased news about the USA is to watch another country's news. I'm starting to think he's right.

I don't know what saffron is, but I thought that was sort of rice. Is it really that expensive? Guess I gotta google it.

Now I'm hungry for chicken. I'd probably eat the shrimp too even if they were like rubber balls. Heh - rubber balls. I just don't have many opportunities to eat shrimp with the hubby allergic. So I'd chew on a couple till I got tired of chewing.
from narcissa :
that looks AMAAAAZING
from misfitstray :
Hm, looks good, I'd eat that too, minus the shrimps. The saffron doesn't look a lot like saffron. Shouldn't it look more like needle-thin orange-red worms?

And kudos on your very sound techniques for teaching people the science of heat. I've got my oven warming up right now.

Ahhhh, Slivovitz! Takes me back to some memorable times visiting friends in the Czech Republic... Homemade is pretty lethal, but got to be done at least once in your lifetime!
from catsoul :
Oh my god, I am Polish. I speak Polish. I so remember eating so many plum dishes my grams made in Warsaw, ND. We had to speak Polish while there because their English was not so good. I still speak fluent Polish and can read Polish. I have all my grams recipes and cookbooks. I talk to my pets in Polish a lot. Thank heavens I traveled a lot while younger before the health issues. Saw the farmstead that my dad's mom and dad lived in before they came to ND. So I got so excited reading your entry from today(9/23/16). Thank you for bringing me some awesome memories. =^..^= P.S. On my FB page I sometimes post old photos of the them and Poland. I look so much like my dad's mom and his grandma, the dark hair and eyes, well now I am going white. So thanks so much again. Keep cooking Polish.

I'm all about plum spirits! Tried Kleiner Feigling (Plum Vodka?) about 5 years ago from a German girl passing out shots at weekend bash. Amazingly delicious! The vodka, not really the girl. Slivovitz is a new goal.

1. So it would be National Conception Day. Okay, I'm sure people would be down with that. 'Conception' is a pretty bland word, easily morphed for the wee ones not to realize. 2. I have not yet had a chance to watch the video with Abba's "I am the City" yet. It is a plan for the near future! 3. You seem very well-rounded. City bustle, bucolic cottage, life from both sides now. Cool! 4. It IS more fun if I believe every word of your diary! 5. EWWWW @ your arm. Put some foo foo juice on that egg salad. 6. I'm glad you like "Just the Tips!" It's a show I go back to repeatedly if I'm in a bad mood. They are an amazing cross between lazy and former grad student that makes me smile. Intelligent, yet not obsessed with perfection. They are BFFs, and there for each other. That's good for people to see. 19. Four sisters? WOW! 20. I've never heard of the Skinnerian technique. Interesting! So when the watchful (vicarious learning) pigeon stopped seeing the original pigeon get rewarded, did it stop pecking the lights? 21. I'm glad you're a feminist, and don't believe that there's any difference aside from upper body strength. But I can't get on board with pornography. It's not good for women -- period. I'm not saying I've never viewed it, but it's putting us back in the goddamn dark ages. And yes -- your wife may watch it, as you've written. I just don't see it helping the cause of equality -- not at all. Perhaps I've poked a bear, perhaps we can agree to disagree! Anyway, see you next time on Longest Note Ever, friend! :)

Beta blockers are God's gift to mankind... I miss them SO much. the Don't Wear White thing does make sense now, albeit in a weird, illogical way as obviously sex does not always equal labour etc etc. Will now genuinely go read the Wikipedia entry on it - who decided what date it should fall on? Is it the same day every year or does it depend on the moon etc like Easter?

My friend you need to get on YouTube and watch Motor Trends Subaru BRZ vs Ford Mustang head 2 head episode (7). It puts it up against a Mustang V6 and does very well against it. And yes, the Scion is going to be come the Toyota 86 in 2017, and the BRZ is engineered with Toyota. However, I'll be updating soon, with what will likely be what I get next.

Dave's Killer Bread is some new, organic bread that's baked here in Tuscaloosa (and so is available for $3/loaf instead of $7/loaf at the bread store). For bought bread, it's not too shabby. My enthusiasm for crate training is unparalleled, and this newest pack member will be trained to a crate if it's the last thing I do (and since he is clearly the brains of our pack, it may well be the -next- thing I do). Heard great things about clicker training, but the degree of coordination required to make it happen is just out of my reach. For now. I've plans to practice some of that today. Bosco is my sixth GSD, so I'm rusty but not inexperienced. Also, he is the most GSDog of the bunch (chill, curious but not obsessed, indifferent to most distractions (screaming children, ASD neighbors, other dogs barking, etc), great problem solver, the works). I'm hoping this means he'll continue to train as well and quickly as he has been doing thus far. If we can get recall sorted, we're all good. If not, there's a well respected group near by who train working dogs for police, NSA, TSA, Border Patrol, and they take and train personal pets, too. They also board these behemoths, which is a miracle as vet boarding never really has enough room for the big breeds. How's the convalescing coming along? Sending well wishes to your elbow. Thanks for the notes; I love the notes!
from buffylass :
Thank you :) and I'm so glad you've gotten your arm back again, albeit in a weakened state. Finally, is THAT what Labor Day is actually about? I thought it must be something to do with work and unions or something. In that case, what's the whole deal with not wearing white after Labor Day?

Ooo, dang. That looks delish. But I wonder if you had the same trouble I did after my second shoulder surgery: I grilled a beautiful steak, sat down to eat it, and realized I couldn't cut it with only one hand. Of course, I just ate it like a caveperson by tearing bites off after spearing it on my fork, but it made me sad.

Does your arm smell, or just the cast? Crazy. Glad you're not trying to type whole new entries! After that last entry, I really don't know what to believe about your life! A lot more of it must be made up than I had originally imagined. Although I can't believe much of it happened, your last entry had a nice circular way about it. Song -> Occurrences -> Callback to the Song. A flipping of the script. Neat! Hey, if you like the Katering Show (YAY!) you might like Just the Tips, starring a woman named Katie and a woman named Katy. They are also totally hilarious, just in a different way. Do you have any sisters? Do you think men who have sisters are more effeminate? Because honestly, that's a good thing! Man Stuff is overrated. So, vicarious learning? Is it intentional (like learning from helping your kid do homework) or unintentional (like you'll never forget some disturbing imagery.)

No corgis - and didn't hear anyone speaking Welsh either :-( Speaking of which (corgis) reminded me that many years ago when I was a kid, our neighbours had a corgi and we had a young cat. the fence between the properties had long-since fallen apart but the animals knew where the boundary was. They would walk up and down the boundary, nose to nose, neither daring to step foot into the other garden.

You're back to swinging your metal detector! Look ma, two hands! Okay, nevermind, that doesn't work at all! Unless it's mamacita or something, and that's really a niche crowd. Nice motorboat joke, bahaha! I see motorboats all the time at work. At a marina. LOL. I guess that means they're officially not sexual to me? But was motorboating ever appealing?! Bahaha! Say, what does an Experimental Psychologist think of the Enneagram? Are you familiar? I promise not to engage you in long conversation about it. :D No, really -- I just enjoy it, I'm not trying to convert you. I'm sorry you spent so long laboriously hunting and pecking! What do you do all day? Do you want a funny series to watch on youtube? There's one called The Katering Show that pokes fun at foodie culture, and food intolerance. Two aussie ladies, a script, some great facial expressions, and some terrible food. Also, lewd jokes. I hope you're recovering well, and giving yourself the rest you need!
from nineofswords :
Yay for 2 fisted masturbation! Congrats!

Hooray! One more day! Your picture gave me horrific flashbacks to my own time in the waist up cast - this was back in the dark ages(2002) when surgeons cut open people's backs to repair shoulder tears.

Thanks for the note! Sister-in-law's dog has been ill the past few days (we had ollie's mum staying for the bank holiday til today so have been receiving almost hourly updates on its condition). The dog wouldn't eat or drink so SIL's neighbour "mad maureen" came over and French kissed water into the dog's mouth. Lovely. Another time we were over and said mad neighbour let the dog lick her face and mouth so much she proudly announced that her tonsils had had a thorough cleaning. *VOMIT*

I'll skip on that offer. But you had me until you mentioned "cooking". Sorry, no cooking for spouses. As I'm too lazy to go over to wordpress, a little comment on catpictures. Glad I didn't see any folded up toilet seats with the cat and all the red in your bathroom.

If it looks like a go, I will let you know. How is the elbow? How about the plumbing in the nether regions? I had another PSA test and am on the "watch" again and may need another biopsy.

Ok. So, since I'm real lazy about getting the meat off the bones and I throw all the skin in with the bones and chunks of meat I can't be arsed to remove, it's really more like a broth, even though the majority is bones?

Thanks, genes! 2) I have never been to Buffalo, but I recently learned that it is the birthplace of Buffalo Wings. Go figure -- never would have guessed that. Chilly there, eh? 3) I really need to see Blade Runner! 4) Is experimental psychology a tough thing to find a job in? Because it feels damn meaningful, like you could go places with it. But what do I know? 5) Thank you for the pep talk telling me I'm good at pep talks! For the win! For the hoard! Fuck yeah! 6) Oh, dear.

bikes! i have so many. It's essential to have an every day beater bike I can ride to a show and park on the street and not worry about. When i first moved to new orleans it was right after Katrina so i built one from parts.. sweated it out in a warehouse near my new home, meeting people, testing out my new life. It's my favorite, I think I'll bring it with me when I pack up my life in New Orleans next week. I have one in Mtl too. I also have a couple of road bikes (a bianchi and a Trek) i picked up on craigslist for <250$ - one in New Orleans, one in Mtl. It's really kind of ridiculous. Too many bikes, too many homes.

Oh and I will never say, "I can't hurt anyone because I'm a vegetarian." Because I will hurt someone, lol.

Thanks for your notes. I can see you are getting better as the frequency of your entries are increasing. I'm glad. Btw. most birds don't have penises. Owls don't. Exceptions are ducks, swans, ostriches and rheas. But I do like the penis on your owl.

I made the ricotta. (Confession: I've made it before, but forgotten about it, especially since my cheese making book is still in storage.) I used your recipe. Then I made zucchini lasagna with red wine marinara out of it. It's amazing. :D
from cloudy-night :
There was an entry of yours that I read a while ago and that I never got to comment on. It's 15 Crystals and I thought that the whole prenup thing was sweet and I can't lie, I was a bit envious after reading it -- I don't think I'll find anyone who gets me like you two seems to get one another. I also like the story of how you proposed to her, that was great. I meant to tell you that I never got the chance to try the stir fried rice because I've been too lazy to get up and go to the Asian market. And I can't tell you which BBQ is better because I haven't eaten meat since 1997 ( other than the kind that come in ramen packets).
from nineofswords :
I've never even thought of eating ricotta cheese by itself, spoon & bowl. I only know it as an ingredient in Italian food. But now I am curious.

AH, but hope is the problem; having unrealistic expectations that things will improve is the most certain way to ensure disappointment/discouragement when they don't.

I love your sense of humor. It's great that you're doing what you can to make the best of your situation. Your wife is definitely going to get you back for this. Think a full week of oral sex. After you've bathed, of course.

Merci! I'll definitely be taking a look! Chateaubriand has a serious retro allure.
from raven72d :
I saw Alphabet City in its heyday--- weird thing: it felt safer at two in the morning, when all the club scene kids were on the street than it ever did at six in the evening, when it was all post-apocalyptic wasteland. I have to try the salting trick with a steak. And...Chateaubriand! hadn't thought about that for years!

from catsoul :
Thanks. I will miss the salad but not the after effects. Hahahahaha. I know I haven't gotten alot done. So how about you? Are you gaining strength in your elbow and arm? Are you doing PT now? Just wondering, how you are doing man. I just had to write about what happened so it got filed, and out of my mind. Never dwell and live in the moment, that is my motto. =^..^=

Oh yeeeah. I forgot Hobby Lobby was a thing. It doesn't exist here in Old Canadia. I'd like to tell you religious whackjobs don't exist here either, but they do. Mostly on communes and stuff, though. (I'd chose Michael's over Hobby Lobby too. I mostly resent Michael's because they have at least a %30 markup over other stores, but are also so convenient. Pricks.)

Nothing wrong with hunting and pecking. I've been doing it for years, and still getting away with it. Spellcheck usually gets me out trouble.
from alethia :
Ooooh. Lookit them pans! I often buy pans from thrift stores because I can easily tell whether they're going to hold up. My most recent acquisitions are two heavy aluminum 8" rounds, and a heavy aluminum bundt pan. Jelly roll pans don't turn up as often (or they're shitty worn out 'non-stick' pans, which I refuse to use). I hadn't thought about stainless steel, though I do patron restaurant supply stores. Regular cooking stores feels like going to Michael's for craft supplies (NEVER GO TO MICHAEL'S FOR CRAFT SUPPLIES). I'm mostly holding off buying new pans right now, because I just dropped So Much Money on new tools. So much, Dangerspouse. I feel poor now.
from alethia :
Not really, but I do fill it with cheese as often as possible. And alternately (and really the driving force behind the name) is I have a tendency to scream "FREEEEDOMMMMMM!!!" when ever I get behind the wheel.

One of the worst parts about my short stint on the cruise ship was not being able to cook. I hope that arm heals up quick. I'm ready with this robot arm, though, just in case yours turns gangrenous and falls off. Let me know. I'll be waiting! :D

Oh Cheesy One, Hoping everything is going very well with your elbow. I am surprised by the impact the health of your elbow has on the quality of my life. This being the case, I need to ask that you please pull yourself together and begin again to deliver the life enhancing prose upon which many of us have come to rely. Living in Alabama, there are alarmingly few other items on my list of life enhancements, I can ill afford to lose DangerSpouse. Thank you for turning aside from the recovery process to hear my plea.

You have a point on Cloudy Bay. It's not hideously overpriced, but it is marketed at about $15-$20 more than it should be. I do want to try the Rabbit Ranch line, but it's hard to find in the States.

Good luck with Round 2!! That came up fast, or at least it seems like it (can't imagine how it feels for you though, in more ways than one)... Swift recovery from it all. Great there are peregrines by you too! Lovely birds and seldom seen here due to persecution. I love that they stick it to the egg thieves by nesting in the (slightly unstable to humans) cliff face...

Sending all the well wishes for a perfect outcome and speedy recovery from your surgery. Hurry back, we'll miss you, and my offer of transcription remains on the table. Get well! Return quickly, I miss you already.

hi there, thanks for the lovely note. As far as the BBB I have, I was diagnosed that around the same age as I was told I am a diabetic, so that was years ago. Then I got c-diff in 2006 and the bacteria got so bad it traveled up into the heart sac, so that bacteria pushed having BBB more into the limelight, so to speak. So it isn't really all that bad, you know, it all could have turned out a more dark crisis. So anyway, thanks for the lovely note, I greatly appreciate it and your words of kindness, it means alot. This too so will pass. Take Care. =^..^=

I learned how to make yogurt from my mom, the good old fashioned way. Put your milk/yogurt mix into a container. Put that contained into a bigger old ice cream pail. Wrap Christmas lights around the small container, inside the pail. Put the lids on. Wrap in towels. Plug in Christmas lights. Leave overnight. You either burn down your house, or have yogurt in the morning. C'EST MAGNIFIQUE!

I have done all crafts at one time or another. I like to design and make jewelry. The jewelry started with doing macrame hangings and wall art way back when, then I started using the waxy thread to make macrame jewelry. My grandma taught me how to knit when I was around 6 yrs. old. So thanks for asking, and your interest. Do you need something created? I also make dreamcatchers and dangly things that hang like curtains over windows that make rainbows in the rooms. I write alot, write alot of poetry all around doing my outdoor and everything else tasks. I am an old hippie man. Peace Out. Take Care. Go hug a tree for me or hug many. =^..^=

Ok, you got me. I was really not wearing any pants because I am a wanton hussy and was waiting for the sprinkler guy, mailman, or wandering salesman to happen by... :-)

My pants were wet from the knees down from watering the lawn, so I took them off and before I could get some shorts on, I forgot I was sans trou, so I just went went around pantsless until it was time to go out again.

Oh, I knew that, but WHAT IF they decided to change that one day and they just happened to be listening to my show that day? WHAT IF. Also I was raised Catholic so there's no stopping my feelings of guilt. P.S. you can find Coffee Nut M&Ms at your finest local gas station/convenience store that doesn't get a whole lot of business - they were a limited-time thing and I think their time has passed, but luckily I work near a store where things don't exactly fly off the shelves, so they still have some. Well worth a multi-state search.

The first time I played a song with a bad word on air, I confessed to it in my shift report. A few hours later the program director called me and I was sure he was going to fire me, but he didn't care. No one actually cared besides me. Still, whenever it happened, I was always a tiny bit worried that the FCC would come break down my door in the middle of the night and drag me off to Guantanamo Bay.

I hope your surgery goes well, and I only a little bit hope they chop off your arm and replace it with a rad robot arm.

from misfitstray :
Wow, and I thought you are only into motor-bikes. So, why do you have a tri bike? You did triathlon as well? I would love to get a full carbon-race machine but they are more expensive than a car. Though, no race-machine for me. And it would be a waste for me as I don't ride as much as I used to. In main training season I rode like 500-800km/week just with the tri-bike plus like 120km with my normal bike. I miss riding my bike/s - A LOT!

Hey man, your engagement story is my second favorite - after the guy who programmed Chrono Trigger ( effin awesome!). What I used for the fried rice recipe was: 2 tsp dark soy sauce, 1 tsp of light soy sauce (well, I didn't have any light, just added some more dark), some white pepper, a pinch of salt. It didn't turn out too well, I mean... it was salty as all, out fuck! Also, it wasn't dark brown like it is at the restaurants I visit. If you have any advice on how I can make it great, let me know! Thanks!

oh, and on your previous comment. Curry in the UK is becoming more sophisticated now, with better presentation. Not so much "give them anything as they're probably drunk anyway"
from barefootruby :
I was going to use a few lentils as well, but kind-of overestimated on the courgette and carrot
from barefootruby :
finely-diced courgette (zucchini), grated carrot, onion, a couple of tins of tomato and some random herbs (I always use random herbs). Grating the carrot was a stoke of genius - it gives a bit of "body" to the mixture. I added a bit of water, but would have used wine if I'd had a bottle spare. I drained the excess juice when it came to potato-topping time, and used that to make the gravy. When I drained the potato I left a bit of water in the pan to provide liquidity for the mash, and stirred in some chopped garlic and parsley.
from jarofporter :
yeah, i knew that, just let the disappointment get to me, i guess. sorry!

Maybe I should call my cousin back and get some of that fungus coffee for you - I hear it's magic.

Actually, in the Newark watershed property there are numerous old homesites where only a fireplace stands or a brick or stone foundation.

Because there is plenty of room for innies and outies in this world. Allow me to explain: a scientist dude did an experiment on Pumpkinseed Fish. Odd name, right? Okay, so he throws a trap into their aquarium, and it sinks to the bottom. The extroverted fish swim straight to it, get caught, and immediately die. But the standoffish fish? They survive. Then he does another experiment. He takes the introverted and extroverted fishies to his lab, and puts them in brand new tanks. The extros start acclimating to the new environment right away, and eating and cavorting and so forth. The intros took several days longer to eat, and adjusted notably slower. So in that test, the extroverts were more likely to survive. Sorry, that was a social science lesson you didn't ask for. Good evening, danger! :D
from bantenhut :
Heya, Danger! Geez, I'm sorry your elbows are such jerks! And my gosh, your vehicle is amazing to hold up to TWO DEER. And you listen to Japanese polka on an 8-track? You are full of surprises! I think that's all the commentary I have at the moment, I'll be sending good vibes that the last deer doesn't hunt you down.

Naked was the clincher when the DMV employee walked up to the bus and saw me standing there in nothing but a pair of cheap sneakers she wrote me up a passing grade on the test and said " Any one who's got a tiny package like that needs all the help they can get" so Jimbos official I still can't fucking believe it,,, thanks for the note :0)
from alethia :
Oh, just a little film called Warcraft. Also, I'm glad you updated. I thought you'd abandoned us. I was sharpening my pitchfork and getting read to come for your appliance power cords. Bummer about the elbow. I hope it heals up nice-like.
from buffylass :
That's not me on the internet. That's my twin. I don't ever write about her but she definitely exists. All the elbow drama sucks to hell and back. Were you still able to hold and drink a beer?
from narcissa :
oh, and good luck with the surgery. Your updates are missed, but I guess functional arms are more important.
from narcissa :
i must be all grown up. I have a sort of "what did I do for the last 5 years? no really." feeling (and diaryland no help. Seriously. what happened?) but recriminations are minimal. Probably because I can't remember anything to recriminate. Obviously need to write more.
from comebacktome :
I KNOW, RIGHT?! I was like, what the actual fuck is going on right now?! I had such high hopes with the sex talk and the leg rubbing and the 'knows his way around a vulva' vibes. Sigh. Oh well, perhaps for the best, the kids thing really is way too much drama. But shit man, what does a girl have to do??? Thanks for the offer (I think?) but tbh New Wifey (™) is far too much of a badass. I have seen the crap she can do to an egg, I would worry something similar might befall my eyeballs should I encroach on her territory. Besides, sisterhood and all that ;) But I did really appreciate the note, you gave me a laugh when I was feeling rejected, and soothed my wounded pride (Seriously, who turns down THIS *gestures to boobs*), so cheers!

Huzzah! Welcome back! I have been stalking you on WP also, but actually saw it here first. I'm slightly disappointed that it's not a masturbation injury, that would be the best story! In other news, trying to break my dry spell upon your encouragement and failing- mostly because the dude turns out to want to have feelings and shit. Weirdo. He clearly has no respect for mink.
from yellow-ninja :
1) Listen, we don't need to talk about me being a crip - I'm going to start wearing a ton of purple so the rumor'll be that I'm a blip. This fresh scar on my belly? I only wanted everyone to think it was from melanoma. 2) I'm 5'4", the national average, so probably still down? Unless you're a giant? 3) Sorry about your wasted year. Since it'll be wasted anyway, you should get into some even crazier shit than usual. Like, step up from murdering deer and get into some real one-handed mayhem. (But really, you didn't miss out on that venison - bloodshot meat or meat tainted by busted up internal organs is no good) Glad you survived the deer assassination attempt (so far), and good luck with your future as RoboCop!

No, of course not, but given two equally reasonable candidates, gender would be the tipping point. But let's say the democrats put forth some boring old fuddy-duddy and the republicans put forth Condoleeza Rice, well... I can't say I wouldn't then vote republican. However, if Condoleeza chose Sarah Palin as her running mate, well... uh. So there.

ok, fine... just because you asked nicely. :-P
from eloira :
Ahhh, good to know you're still in one piece! Well, most of you at least... Hoping the next surgery goes smoothly (no pun intended, honest). As for the deer, it's nice to know it's not just us! Hopefully getting the radiator fixed Tuesday, and possibly may shed some of the deer hair making the car look like it's grown a moustache... Also thought about meat spoils, but it was still far too alive and kicking. Pleased the damage to yours seems to be superficial!
from aryssa90 :
Im still not convinced these arent masturbation related injuries. Maybe with cyborg arms youll be able to have a tighter grip or something. Go go gadget fleshlight!

Wait, what? HissandTell is just sleeping, right? A recent email reference to meeting at Diaryland in 2005 brought me back to explore (Candoor is sort of summarizing the journey, which may take a while, even though I am logged in with my other account). I was so glad to find you still pouring brilliant words out here. Thank you for that. I hope all is well. :)
from nepenthean :
HissandTell is dead? That makes sense but damnit! I loved her too. How many years has it been? And do you know if Marn has kicked the bucket also, or just moved on. I've had this DL for 13 years! I refuse to get rid of it. Just so handy and old skool.

*dessert not desert
from barefootruby :
pears I can tolerate I I really have to, but would prefer not to. When I was a kid my mum took me to one of her old friends for lunch. When dessert came the friend announced "nothing much for desert I'm afraid; only pears". Being polite and shy I was too afraid to say I didn't like them - and mum said nothing either. So I ate as few slices and with as much shortbread as I could get away with. Pineapple, however, I can't eat at all. Scroll forward a few years and my first visit to my dad's new gf. She'd made a fruit cocktail, which was fine until I found a piece of pineapple. "oh well, I can leave that on the side without causing offence" I thought. But on closer inspection I discovered that the cocktail was 50% pineapple. I had to 'fess up and ask my dad to eat it.

You're a flautist! Cool. Nothing to be ashamed of, but I understand you're joshing! Your wife is so awesome! Delicious looking buns, too. Glad you've not left Diaryland, and it's just a sideshow over at that OTHER blogging site. And, I think you're absolutely right -- people miss writing. I love seeing new/old members post "hello again" entries. Heartening indeed. Oh, and funny story: I never once noticed your piano key and music note background until your new blog came around. So your new layout is doing something right! Oh, and I have a real lack of observation skills, apparently. Cheerio!
from jimbostaxi :
How's this one ,, who's the father you ask ? Jeez if that towel gets any fucking smaller that she walks around in or she bends over to pick up a quarter I might be! Of course I'd have to heave my saggy geezer balls over my shoulder and have the paramedics on standby but hey if there's grass on the fucking infield play ball!!!! Ah it was a touching scene in the fucking shithole I call the compound all 50-60 men who live here had somber faces as T.G screamed QUIET! I HAVE AND ANNOUNCENT,,, a hush fell over the crowd ., then she said it,,, I'm pregnant ,, we all cried and hugged each other thinking each of us was the dad. Then the crying became laughter as she said Mikes the father ! the cheers, the jubilation it was like the fucking 4th of July and New Years combined. Then we all went out to get fucked up everyone except Mike who just kept muttering why me?? Yep he knows

from jarofporter :

Then 2nd I love to read. I plan on doing 1-2 rest-days on my hike and the kindle weighs a lot less than a book... As I'm a quick reader I will at least need 2 or 3 books. 3rd, I want to listen to music before I go to sleep and as I don't play an instrument or sing (you never want to hear me sing!!) there's no other option than an MP3-Player...
from jarofporter :
it's advice that will be considered, although i shouldn't be needing it right away. i sung this last time at a good 3-4 inch distance - with the monitor being set properly, i could adjust my volume quite easily simply by turning towards/away from the mic ever so slightly. also at that distance, no popping P's or such, either! if i start to notice issues, i'll definitely keep it in mind though, thanks!

Recently I found a Moeck recorder in a thrift store, with a case and all the trappings. It looked like someone got it from their grandmother, thanked her politely, and gave it to the store. I paid $20 for it. $20 CANADIAN. So virtually nothing. It wasn't one of the REALLY expensive ones, but it was a 2200 Flauto Rondo Descant. I gave it to my recorder-playing friend for her birthday and she almost shat herself. It was a good party. :D

No, I didn't get into Antioch :-( . I couldn't get my records and they wouldn't accept any other proof. However, when I went for campus visit day, they had still not earned back their certification as an actual college, from when they collapsed financially, and had to be taken over by a larger entity. So, as it turns out, not getting in was something of a boon, since a BA from there would have only meant something to me, and not the world at large, without the credit. I did however get accepted to another, fully accredited university, and am finishing my BA online :-) Thanks so much for coming by!

My Gramps was a 1950s gangster living in Mayfair who burnt evidence in fires and switched license plates on his collection of Jags every week, and still she maintains she didn't know he was a criminal until the Garda came to extradite them back to England. Wow, that is one fabulous wedding pic, I have to say. I also dig your wife's hair. But I totally understand the urge to cut it when it's hot. I cave and do the same thing a lot with my curly hair (It's like having an effing fleece on your neck, I swear) and then it seems to take FOREVER to grow back. Sucks rocks.

Happy belated birthday. In my mind, I keep going back to your Jan 23rd entry. I have to say, your marriage ain't based on a lie, it is based on New Wifey's love.

Oh, wow! Thank you for the in all seriousness advice! I didn't see that note until just now, as it was thoughtfully separated from the one before it! You give solid advice on these things. As for the dispassionate, well, he is dispassionate about nearly everything and everyone. Except when people do stupid things on the road, so clearly he doesn't have a death wish, haha. Also, we're actually engaged, and I don't really think he would leave me, I am just very jealous because...well, I just am. And if there was to ever be a breakup, it would likely be me breaking it off with him. But I'm super curious, what made you think I thought he might leave? (I am asking you that directly, and so it's okay if the answer isn't so pretty.) Anyway, thanks for the advice. When you said "genetic propensity," did you mean to avoid doing what my mother did, or to watch out, because my kid could end up an emotional robot, like my fiance? Either is possible, I just like analyzing your words! Anywho, it'll be awhile yet before I have a career, so it'll be awhile till a kiddo. Good talk. :)

Interesting about the prostate situation. I feel for you. I had heard that they stopped doing that surgery years ago, but then I recently heard they did not stop, but they had changed something with it and perhaps it was improved. My Dad had that about 40 years ago. I think the recovery is fairly long. You may want to see if there is a support group and go talk to a few of the guys who had that to make sure you understand what is involved. I do understand, my prostate is enlarged too. Probably from us living too close to Hamburg mountain and all the radon coming from it in that NY/NJ border area.

I feel sorry for you. That was quite the a torture at the doctors office. You poor one! Do the surgery now, then it's behind you and you can look forward to sperm-free adventures with NewWifey(TM). I don't like to swallow either, I guess most women don't. Ezekiel 23:20 says correctly in a most direct translation from hebrew: "And she kept lusting in the style of concubines belonging to those whose fleshly member is as the fleshly member of male asses and whose genital organ is as the genital organ of male horses" Well, that's what my bible says.

I am seriously thinking about putting the television away. I am too attached to it to just set it out on the curb. But I think I will just put it away and just catch up on some things. Sorry to hear you have to go through such a surgery. Do you want any children? Do your wife want any?

Oh My! I was trying (probably too hard) to imagine what a retrograde thingummybob would feel like but its been so long since I had sex that it was an imagine too far. Be well, my friend. s xx
from sevenmagpies :
Indeed, I WAS waiting for surgery right then. Keeping busy seemed the thing to do (not that I'd had surgery before and knew the protocol) and it worked. I had a sleeve gastrectomy done privately (that's where they take away 75-80% of the stomach for the uninitiated in bariatric surgery) - so elective but major. Thanks for the well wishes though! Just so you know, that chicken fajita burger, sweet potato fries and coffee milkshake will be a regular feature of my dreams for the next six weeks - solid food is a no go. Especially solid, unhealthy food. Anyway - unused Christmas wrapping paper? I know not what that is. I'm one of those creative cutters who gets as much out of the roll as possible. Sorry to hear about the news of your impending op - your episode at the docs actually made me feel good about pap smears. So, bravo, you have done the impossible :-D I can understand wanting to wait and spread the spackle about a bit before it is no more too. Your wife sounds uber cool.

Wow! What a doctor adventure! I forgot what a Durian fruit was, and looked it up -- they're terrifically pointy. Ouch. You're being a trooper, and your wife is such a character! Good luck!

Ken and Lee should really consider your proposition . I'm all about it. I should find out this week if I got the position, I'm thinking I didn't because they can't really afford to lose me in the position I'm in as we are already short staffed. Ugh. My grandma moved back in with my grandpa but nothing is resolved. They're both unhappy. They've been together for like 46 years so it's weird. I hope they work it out but I don't want them to stay together because they feel they have no other options. How are you? I thought about you the other day because lee works at a pizza place and I watched him mix dough in what looks like a giant kitchen aid mixer. Think of the possibilities!

Note notifications must have been pure wishful thinking! Excellent. I never make New Years resolutions for that reason alone :-D I always break the rules I'm supposed to stick to by sheer will power alone. Thank you for the birthday wishes - I didn't, however, eat three times as much as I should. You could think of it as a bit like a last meal though - chicken fajita burger and sweet potato fries...and that coffee milkshake...to die for. My pre-op diet started not long after and it's been a bore in comparison. I'm current sat in my hospital room waiting to be taken to surgery - I'll keep dreaming of that burger for the next six weeks when I can't eat solid food *sighs*. By the way - a metal detector?! What an epic gift. I think I'd live on the beach, searching through coke cans for elusive treasure!

Oh no, I absolutely think it was some dumb teenage boy impulse that led them out onto the thin ice. I think what everyone is hoping for is some reason other than lack of a fully developed prefrontal cortex for why a 16-year-old kid is dead and another is currently hanging out at death's door. Make it easier to deal with or something. It doesn't actually, of course, but wondering what led them out there is a good distraction.

By the way, congrats on your 1995 ring. And also, did you know there's a FB group for DL? I had to bug the leader of it to let me in, but it's a group of about 60, pretty neat. I have my Groups list hidden on FB, which is a thing you can do if you're worried about privacy. Lata!

So your dad plays Animal Crossing? That's interesting, and sounds like a story of its own! I didn't realize you had so many drinking responsibilities working at a radio station, ha! You had a terrible cable provider? I formerly worked for fairpoint (indirectly), so if you had them, you might have spoken to me at one time or another. Yeesh, it's bad news bears for people in the northeast who use them. Anyway, glad you've found a better way, whoever your provider was. Woot is pretty great! I bought a record player there once. It eventually broke, like the player I had before it, but it was a nice addition for awhile. Fortunately, it wasn't the size of a loveseat! Thanks for your comments, as usual! It's fun reading them!

Jmping up and down now.Your wife isn't going to see you a whole lot now. My granddaughter and I use ours all the time. Maybe that is why she loves to dig in the sand and dirt so much. After awhile your hands will become stained and hardened. You will know when you are a die hard digger of treasure when you break your first shovel. Oh and when you go to the "man's store" you are thrilled to check out picks and shovels, then buy another to add to your digging collection of treasure seeking tools. I truly wasn't bored at all with your entry. Oh and Happy New Year. Go search and dig. =^..^=

Whatever happened to note notifications?! Gah. Happy New Year to you too! Did you make any resolutions? Christmas was pretty good thanks. I commandeered the TV to watch Happy Feet, Brave, Doctor Who & Romeo and Juliet (I bet my step-dad-to-be just loves it when I'm around). My brother has some awesome speakers set up at my mum's so you would have appreciated the sound quality ;-) Birthday was spent over-indulging at an American Diner and watching Star Wars at the cinema. Boxing day felt like we spent the whole time winding each other up playing monopoly. My mum and her sister were ruthless, and my poor Grams had no idea how to play - "£220 for one property - no thank you, that's very expensive." How was yours?? Alas, I wish I was still basking in the afterglow, but I'm instead wallowing in seas of cardboard boxes and bubble wrap. The movers are coming on Monday and I turn procrastination into an art form.

Thank you. I feel bad for my brother too. I tried to contact him several times with no success before, I just have to wait until he's ready again. He changes his phone numbers and email adresses like underwear and I don't have his homeadress to write letters... well, everybody has a way to go through live, we are individuals. He's just not made for this kind of society.
from eloira :
Happy New Year to you too! Sorry about the roast lamb - if it's any consolation there was far too big a veg:meat ratio, and we forgot the broad beans. As for the sound bar, when it vibrates everything around it to pieces and blows out the windows, and the expense is too great for another round of replacements, can I have it? Sounds like it was most definitely worth it!

Chao Tom. Had it a few years ago at a Vietnamese restaurant and loved it. It was their version and it was on very skinny pieces of cane skewers through shrimp.

Too bad my cane growing friends are 4.5 hours away, but I think I will still call them tonight and beg for them to save me a few stalks. I will cut them, dip the ends in wax and put in the Fridge and try freezing a few. I agree about Chubbles. Fucking cat has my heart.

Re: my buttercream icing. I probably should have clarified making the icing was fine but I made it to decorate a cake - a Hulk Hogan cake to be exact and working with it was a lot harder than I thought. If it was in the fridge too long it got too hard but if it sat out while I used it (unfortunately in the sun cause that's where my kitchen table is situated) it became super soft and runny. It was also my first time making it so I'm sure the recipe I used may have had something to do with it. But I've decided to stay away from making my own icing this weekend and go with the store bought stuff. I figure I'll be stressed enough in decorating the cake without having to worry about the icing.

Read your note to Catsoul and you are spot on. What do you think of those alcoholics in recovery? I would imaging that they would not be the most credible. Also, while toggling back and forth, just discovered I missed two of your updates!
from catsoul :
Thank you so much for your thought. I do so get what you said. They have pickled thoughts. I forgot to mention how OCD her dad is and a control freak. I also think that they are in denial that their daughter's relationship is failing. No one is perfect, we work to improve hopefully. Some people never change, like them, and they think that my son should become a whole new person so that their daughter can have her way. Like she isn't perfect. There is alot of raised voices in their house and yelling. The other grandpa yelled at my granddaughter during a Packer game because she didn't flush her poop. That yelling behavior I heard about didn't win him any points from me. Never ever yell at a child. Actions speak so loud. They want to seem like so OK as people, but I know better. So again I want to thank you for your insight about people who are alcoholics. Take Care and have a marvey week. =^..^=

Thanks for the nagging... LOL. Thank you sincerely for the concern, I wrote,it because Imwas concerned too. The pattern is not much different, as I piss a whole lot in the mornings. Probably a good reason, I get up, drink a glass of water (or two) then have two large cups of coffee and either a glass of skim milk with breakfast and maybe more water or sometimes a 12 or 16 ounce Diet Coke or Pepsi. It was the different odor that caught my interest and I wish I would have checked my blood sugar level, even though it has always been fine I the past. I'm planning on scheduling an appointment with a doctor, as I need a doctor here. Thanks for the concern brother. Feel free to hold me accountable for the Doc visit
from phaythles :
Well the WHOLE lecture that my gma gives me about harboring murderous tendencies has multiple steps. She starts off by reminding me that Im not getting shit from the will so it wouldnt do me any good to "bump" her or have her "bumped". Then the questions start. 1) Do I feel the need to hack a person? 2) Do I still have friends? 3) How much alone time am I having? (This one depends on her mood and how many beers shes had. Sometimes Ive had too much alone time while others Im not getting enough alone time. Im not sure what the appropriate amount of alone time society deems is acceptable. Something tells me gma is making it up) 4) Do I dissect kittens? In regards to your wife scrap booking is completely overrated and EVERYONE deserves a hobby. So if she still has a friend and isnt alone all the time then she has successfully dodged the serial killer bullet. This means dissecting kittens is a quirky hobby. Think of it as a great conversational starter. She may even gain more friends and decrease her alone time. This makes it a win/win in my book.
from alethia :
Hahaha. No, not really. But extreme emotions make things crystallize perfectly into words, and the worst emotions last the longest. I do love my mom, but sometimes I hate her too. (And I got unofficial word today that my raise was approved! Whoo!) I can imagine radio is similar. I think all entertainment is very much the same.

A Halloween post exhorted "run as if a hand has come out of the ground and grabbed your ankle". I pointed out that if a hand came out of the ground and grabbed my ankle I would trip over if I tried to run.

The cosplay is actually an Assassin's Creed character. Men's costumes seem to be much more fetching - but someone made this one epic, and female. My mind keeps wondering what'd happen if I turned up to the swanky gathering in it, but I haven't got the guts... Hoping all is well in Dangerhouse.

I don't have any plans of moving out on my own. I live out in the country and I have no vehicle and I don't want to move back to the city. Auntie seems to have changed her tune here lately. Things back to "normal".

Thanks! Much appreciated! I have a Dove dark chocolate bar close at hand, so I just may see about a wee dram of Ardmore with it... Armagnac! Now, then--- I have to go by my wine merchant on Saturday, so it may be time to do some looking!

You understand the limitations of my liquor cabinet, so I assure you that it wasn't a dixie beer! In fact, i think it was a high life, so that probably makes you pretty glad it wasn't you.

I stayed out until like midnight on Halloween. I was very impressed with myself.

Yes, I do eat those sugar free candies and I'm usually not tempted in the least to eat the regular stuff, but something about looking at 30 dollars worth of my old favorites got to me and I had the bright idea of taking a Metformin to counteract the sugar.

Now your coming out entry is hilarious! Due to the family genetics, I have been having the digital exam since I have been 25. Sometimes it is better than others, like the doctor who used half a tube of KY so it wouldn't be painful. All that goo in the crack of my ass did leave me feel a bit violated... LOL

Fuckin-A, I know you are right about that toxicity. Good or bad (depending how it is looked it) I recognize much of her behaviors from working with a therapist on figuring out what my wife was doing. So far I recognize her power struggles, manipulations and several other behaviors. Thanks for the support.

I had to take a break and go run errands, but now I'm fidna sling some codes.

I complained about an aggressive JW to my masseuse (the guy was out at 5am! FIVE IN THE AM! Walking down the street and approaching people waiting for the bus! He did it almost every damned day!

Who speaks of libido? I meant horniness. That kind where you want to force yourself on someone who wasn't able to flee within 3 seconds I spotted him or her... I think my libido is quite normal. But I hold it in check, so nothing happens.
from misfitstray :
I'm pretty sure that I wrote that fact in one of my former emails right in the beginning. Well, no prob, I got used to such things as being a pain in the ass when it comes to going from house to house. When people say that they don't want to be visited anymore in a sincere earnest way, we accept that and we make a note and try not to show up anymore in the near future. Maybe we'll try to come by any other 2 years or so. (At least it is handled this way in Germany) You'll never know what happens in mankinds lifes. Someone dies, someone gets ill, you never know and people are searching for answers. But mostly people lie to our faces and say "no time", I'm in a hurry" or such things or just "we are/I'm not interested". That doesn't include that they don't want to be visited. So we show up again and again.

Nice way to win against the Jehovah's Witnesses. When I tried my version of that, they sent in reinforcements. They knocked at the door and asked if I had a church. I had just purchased a heavy metal album from the band Metal Church, so I grabbed the album and showed the the cover, while putting the CD on and cranking the shit out of the sound. They left only to return with more people and wanted to discuss their beliefs. I told them I believed in Metal and worshipped at the Heavy Metal altar... I had to stop answering my door for the next three months... but back then, we did not have internet TV. Nice win, I salute y'all.

Hello! I didn't realise you had left me notes, apologies! So, first of all, thank you for not teasing me about becoming a spinster in my sensitive moment. I did get to the airport- my mum actually drove me, but only because she got caught up with another errand and couldn't go into work anyway. And we were just making roast veggies, nothing fancy. They had roast chicken, but I made a roasted cauliflower with a tahini yoghurt sauce that is fucking delicious. The moroccans know their shit with veggies.

Thanks for the tip on shredding large quantities of meats. Might come in handy when I become a cannibal someday. :P Oh, and I actually hate fondant, marshmallow or otherwise. I'm making the chocolate cake with fondant because that's what was asked for. I prefer me a good buttercream anyday. And yes, I've tried the one with creme anglaise. I used it for almond duquois once, but found the cookies too sweet for the frosting, which is to frickin' DIE for. But yes, fondant's overrated. When it comes to aesthetics, I would prefer to use marzipan anyway.

a propos your post about the poop transplant cure for c-diff, I've just read hat you can get paid $40 a deposit for poop donation. ps - if you were to have shot a moose on your CA trip, surely it would have had to hang for a few weeks before it were ready to eat

Hey, thanks for the note! I didn't know anyone actually read my diary! Well, you'll be happy to know that I have changed a lot since I was 14 thirteen years ago! I DID learn to cook, and I actually quite enjoy it. I'm not whipping up 5 course meals or anything, but I find lots of recipes on Pinterest that are tasty and easy enough to follow (and usually have something to do with pasta). I was all prepared for a "historic rain event" this weekend thanks to Joaquin, but it turned out to be anything but! No heavy consistent rains as predicted and no flooding. Lol oh well, I'm still prepared with my gallons of water and flashlights aha!

from yellow-ninja :
Now you've gone and done it. Forty percent, mister. Colorado is not quite 40 percent high plains. The eastern high plains slope upwards for 200 miles before a person reaches ranges that include 54 mountains of 14,000 feet or greater and over 800 peaks between 11,000 and 14,000. But you don't have to pay attention to this bumpkin - one of my coworkers who is from NY tried to help me understand your NJ perspective today at lunch. I think we worked it out. So, you just go ahead and enjoy your traffic-y armpit of a state, and I'll enjoy never walking uphill in mine. I can't believe I'm from NE, and you're trying to give me shit about CO being flat.

Dang! You were knocking right around my 'hood. At my former school, I could see Pikes Peak from my classroom. Sounds like you didn't have too bad a time (aside from DIA, but DIA always sucks)! I have a bone to pick, though - as Nebraskan (former?), the Midwest stops at North Platte (the self-proclaimed gateway to the West and home of Buffalo Bill Cody's Ranch, natch). Anything farther west, but short of California is "a mountain state" or just "the West". And yeah, sorry my current state stinks like skunk. My 'burb doesn't allow the sale of weed, but most around here do. It's pretty disgusting.

Glad new wifey is doing better! Enjoyed seeing the meat celebration you did. I have been told that vegetarians should be cooking for a minimum of two hours a day. Odd that you gained weight. I know a lot of vegetarians who have gained weight, but I figured that was because they bought a lot of prepared meals, with high fat contents. I had something witty to say but forgot it...

from catsoul :
hi...glad she is better. Though don't you think two months is too long? I do. She should just get the fecal transplant anyway so things keep getting better for her. Wow, again I say that is too long for c-diff. WTF is wrong with her doctors? Perhaps you should change doctors to one that is more aggressive in treatment so she can be healthier. I have a question, I don't suppose she can work. I had to not work during my bowel c-diff crisis. Enough said. Take care you two. =^..^=

So glad to see your link in red! Really well said in your entry. I avoided all forms of media yesterday for that very reason. And I realized with a start yesterday that my students, born in 1999 and 2000 and 2001, have no concept of what that day was like or of what it was like to live in our world before it happened. I think the change is probably coming pretty soon, based on their lack of any sort of visceral reaction or expression towards 9/11. They're solemn and vaguely sad, but there's no histrionic edge to it.

There's a long-running radio comedy show here in UK-land that generally pokes fun at the week's news. It had already been recorded and ready to air before the Columbine shootings.

7/28/15....Again, c-diff, fucking no. I feel so bad, gut wrenching actually for her. Fecal transplant. Help her. People die from c-diff, being honest about it. I sort of recall my stay in CCU and ICU myself with c-diff. Don't let it get to the point where it perforates her bowels or the bacteria infection attacks the heart like it did me. Be her advocate and get her into a specialist. Oh my god, I hated reading about her troubles, and bless you too. Take Care. =^..^=

from nineofswords :
I'm sorry to hear that your wife has c-diff again. When patients in a rehab hospital have c-diff, it puts them in the second to highest "tier level" of payment because of the difficulty in treating it. Patients on long term antibiotics are susceptible to c-diff. It can be deadly. As soon as she can, and forever more she needs the best probiotic available. Renew Life Probiotic 50 Billion would be a life changer.
from misfitstray :
too bad that this antibiotic wasn't good for your wife :( I hope that she gets well again soon!!! c.diff sucks!!!

cool whip? GROSS! love my kitchenaid...whipped up a batch of blueberry muffins (jersey fresh!) in it this weekend that were divine. i'm by no means a professional, but i spend more and more time each week learning about food and cooking. it's absolutely amazing what fresh ingredients do for a wannabe chef. that's probably been my biggest 'advancement'... i still use a few cans and jars, but most of my meals are fresh fresh fresh. agree that skills > gadgets but i do love my gadgets! i need better knife skills. i'm much better these days, but i'm also a southpaw with zero coordination. ;)

Wow, a stuffed panda. Never thought of such a pet. Isn't it a bit too big? Maybe I'll stay with my spiders and silverfishes. My spiders grew pretty much as I feed them from time to time.

C diff is nothing to mess around with.

Those 4 products will help her. They are all in cobalt blue bottles with yellow labels and you can get it at CVS. And she must avoid nuts and seeds and other small, indigestible things.
from peggypenny :
Yes, they are salad recipes with dressing recipes. Oh boy, so funny to see them calling for real mayo, heavy cream, butter...
from whystinger :
Well, with that definition, I was really married. I have had to come running and check out her poop. In fact, I had to wipe her ass and wash it after she had hemorrhoid surgery. Wow. C-diff is no joke. I second the fecal transplants, plus have they suggested any other things? I'm sorry to hear she is not doing well again.
from eloira :
I will! In the meantime will have to dig out one from a few months ago. I looked like a My Little Pony, but I loved it. Poor wifey - sounds like tough times... Hope better days are not so far away for you both!
from catsoul :
6/14/15....hi. You know they do fecal transplants now to improve the chances of not dying from c-diff. I was one of the lucky ones not to die. So you should look into the procedure. It works and no more antibiotics. Take care. =^..^=
from misfitstray :
That doesn't seem to be good news. All the best for NewWifey(tm) I hope she recovers very quickly! ♥

I miss you my friend! And I'm just thinking about that threesome. I might bring a friend. You can handle 3 women? ;)

Thank you, I didn't think anyone would notice.

You know, from your stories I imagined NewWifey(tm) had small amounts of patience. But Geezus, egg stiching? That speaks of waaay more than small amounts. And wonderful hands.

i checked my buddy list for the first time in years and there you were which means you are still here which is somewhat amazing to me as staying in one place has always been some sort of art form i've yet to perfect... kind of like juggling, only with less movement... for all the winding words you've shared and still share, thanks, and here's to hoping you are enjoying a happy and healthy winderful life...
from whystinger :
Hotel breakfasts are usually crap and make me gassy too. I suspect it is the powered egg product or whatever crap they use. Seriously. When I have to go to our office, there is a convenience store with a ton of Mexican customers and their tamales are better on my stomach than hotel breakfasts.

i think an american might be the only one to get that euphemism (actually, i expected it to be just midwesterners. unless you're just pretending to know!? lol) anyway, thanks for the brine tip - can you suggest ratios (water/salt/sugar)? i'd like to try it on those breasts (again, not a euphemism!)

I'm sorry about the 6 part rant on my own special narcissist. I should apologize to everyone publicly. hahaha. I had to get it out of my system and now it's done.

To answer your question about almond flour, I am not sure it is measured cup for cup, but there are many almond flour bread recipes that give full instructions. If you are on Facebook, look up "Low carbing among friends". There are all kinds of recipes for breads on that page. Also, google up some recipes. I will be getting back into blogging about low carb living very soon. I've been hung up on the realization that my ex is a big ole narcissist, but I'm wrapping that up today, I think.
from nineofswords :
Hey! Believe it or not, I just found your notes for the very first time on 5/24/15. In fact, this is the first time I've known that there were ANY notes!! I cannot believe people have been reading this blog and posting notes. Thanks! I'm going to read yours too!!

It's raining in Munich day and night, it's crowded, it's loud, it's ugly, people are unfriendly, I have to work. Well, I'm just in a very bad mood, that's the main reason.

from misfitstray :
Well, they liked all of it. As their youngest kid (11) didn't went with the others we couldn't watch movies rated higher than 12 *sigh* We watched Guardians of the Galaxy. The kid loved the oreos best. And yes, peanut M&Ms are the best! But I didn't eat. Got drunk on Desperados. At least someone (-thing) joined my desperate-horny mind-body... Is that you in the first pic? o_O
from yellow-ninja :
Thank you! I was sure trying to reach them. As awful as it was to watch them cry, it was also nice to know I got 'em.

I'm actually a teacher rather than a waiter, and the "chef" is the person who developed the curriculum I'm teaching. He is a terrible person in almost every way. Your general point about looking elsewhere for work is a good one, though, and I am just on the verge of doing something about that...
from misfitstray :
Thank God for little blessings and "onion breath" ;) I am very afraid of your wife, man! But if she would like a threesome, I'd be all in ;) If you like I could tell about other visits to the club in one of my next entries. I went there a few times a few years ago. But I'm sorry, no pics *sigh*. It's not allowed to take pics there.

i honestly spent a couple days thinking about that joke and trying to figure out if i was missing something, but no, it's just that bad! i love it. here's my favorite bad joke: why do seagulls live by the sea? because if they lived by the bay, they'd be bay-gulls.
from alethia :
Watch out with those many beards. A shoreside contractor came in this week, and he had a beard so thick it absorbed light. My ovaries exploded on sight.
from barefootruby :
Both desserts are a piece of piss to make: dessert # 1. Dip chocolate chip cookies in sherry for a few seconds – long enough to get impregnated, not so long that they get soggy – and sandwich together with whipped cream. Arrange as a log. If there’s any cream left over, use it to cover the finished log. You can use orange juice instead of sherry if you are preparing for younglings (as I was). Dessert #2 is a variation on eton mess. Double Cream, crème fraiche, cold custard. About equal quantities, but adjust to taste. There might be some plain yoghurt in there too, I can’t remember. Whip the cream, mix in the other stuff. Mix in some soft fruit (strawberries and raspberries work well) and broken meringue pieces.

Ive gone back and read properly now. The demise of a car is a lamentable thing to be sure - may it rise, Lazarus-like from its own ashes, and be restored to its former glory ere too long. My husband/your car - theyre pretty much interchangeable now, arent they? ;-) xx
from rockhound :
Sorry to hear of your vehicle's untimely abdication. I'm glad you were able to scrape up enough pennies, virgins and anything else that could be sold, to pay the blood money for the replacement engine. Too bad your vehicle was bought in Jersey. Here, you'd have owned the dealership and the dealer's kids under the terms of our lemon law. You can screw over employees sixty ways, but God help you if you screw over a car buyer.

What would life be really like without a few unexpected surprises, right? So car getting fixed, food, booze, and a week off, sounds pretty darn good.

Check Enterprise for weekend specials on rentals. This might not be helpful, as you might need car during week but until Faith is fixed, some local Enterprise Rent a Car places have weekend deals of 9.99 per day weekends only from Fri to MON , cause you know with this weather few are renting cars for weekend getaways as they do the rest of the year. Cars will sit, or they can be rented cheaply. JUst search Enterprise 9.99 and see if you find the link should this be helpful

Sorry to read about your car breaking down that sucks in the cold. I added emergency road service to my auto insurance during the last really cold spell. It was and extra 40$ bucks a year which is ok by me because I was tired of those long walks home in the freezing cold.
from dogsdontpurr :
I totally owe you an email, but first: do you not have AAA or Auto Club where you are? It is so worth it if you ever need to get towed. Also, I always write my posts in notepad first, then post them.

Ahh...the joys of driving illegally. Or, sort of in your case. I? Was driving with permit while my (single parent, full-time chllege student, full-time floor nurse) mom was studying. I'd been driving for a couple of years at this point, and she just needed the 30 minutes of quiet. One puddle, and the '76 Gran Torino station wagon spun and ran the passenger corner down a classmate's driver side (he was moving too, so timing is...everything). Not going fast, no damage to mom's car...just $400 that she didn't have to pay for the repair. Not as heartbreaking as your tale, but I get the gist. Merry Happy if I don't remember later!!

12/20/14....thanks for asking about the spagetti bake. Super lean hamburger, 3 lbs. I fry that up, put in a large bowl. 2 cans of diced tomatoes without any seasonings because of all my allegeries. 2 cans of tomato soup. Blend beef, tomatoes, and soup together. Then I prepare box of angel hair spagetti. Not to tender because you bake this at 350 degrees for an hour. I use margarine to coat the bottom and sides of my 9 by 13 inch glass pan. First layer cover with pasta, put over all the pasta the beef, tomatoe, soup mix, then whatever shredded cheese you want. Repeat, the pasta, beef mixture, then cheese. I place 12 toothpicks then cover with foil. Bake. I use mozzeralla and provolene cheese for one layer of the cheese, then I use a mixture of cheedar and colby. Remember we are big into cheeses in Wisconsin. Considering I don't use any spices in this dish, it is very tasty and pretty easy to digest. I eat only about a 2 by 2 inch piece at a time compared to what my husband eats. Oh he puts a dab of sour cream on his serving. You could spice it up if you want. Thanks again for asking. =^..^=

Food list sounds like a good idea once I see all the stuff on there I will definetly scare myself thin! I thank you sir for the encouragement. I may indeed shoot you off and email when the food danger is low but when the food danger is high you need to be ready!

Sorry to be late, but I have been off and distracted... I am sorry to hear of the death of your family member. Our pets are members of our families and they are an integral part of this family. We take care of them and they give us unconditional love. They watch us and watch over us and they know us. They grieve when we are ill and grieve when either we pass or another member of the family passes away or leaves. I understand your feelings for the Corgi - I had a few dogs and we had a few cats. My dogs passed away years ago and the cats were more recent. Remember the good times and take heart that you will always remember them. I still remember my dog that died when I was in 4th grade.

awww my corgus was red and white too...the best! RIP casey and snuggles :)
from catsoul :
12/10/14....I get all weepy when I read that a person's family pet member passed. Casey will be so missed. His sad little fur buddy is gone. When Katie passed, who was Sadie's little pal, it got so sad and bad that we adopted a little rescue doggie for Sadie and us. Best, the best decision we ever did. Now over the years they are boyfriend and girlfriend. Taffy the cat is also included. When they sit all together it reminds me so much of "The Incredible Journey" trio. I also feel what your wife is going thru. I also don't get out much and I talk to them all the time. So all said, as time passes you may think about getting another fur buddy family member. Take Care. =^..^=
from life-my-way :
Much sympathy on the loss of Casey. Also, on the sadness of watching Gloria the Liquid Cat look for her missing friend. My late German Shepherd did that when our Schnauzer died many years ago. Around in a circuit, around and around, all 80 sad pounds of him, looking and looking. The most pitiful thing ever is what it was. In happier news, your Bacchanalian Xmas tree is amazing. XOXO

Thank you for that tip on nuzzle! I liked it better with the "u". I even had to look up the word for "Einspritzduese" (jet nozzle) and I would swear it said nuzzle. There are things you think, that are just wrong.... Hope you are feeling a bit better. (((0))) Big hug!

I'm so very sorry for your loss! I had to go through exactly the same on March 17th, 2008. We'll never forget those absolutely lovely, never ending love-giving furry friends. I had to cry, when I read your entry and even cry a little more when I think now of my Tula. It's so embarrassing as I'm sitting at my desk at work. Damn!
from aryssa90 :
i am so sorry to hear that. they do love us in a way that humans dont know how to love and it hurts so bad to have them leave. im hear if you need to chat or stare catatonically at the screen or try to get drunk. it shows a lot about your character and what a wonderful fur dad you were.

sorry to hear, been through it myself with my two cats. hang in there, man...

oh i'm sorry.. it's the worst. And it's so hard when you don't get to say goodbye to them.

I'm glad you have the roll in the crumbs, and hope that Casey holds out a little longer. It'd be mighty selfish of him to keel over for Christmas.
from alethia :
I'm tired of being alone, though. It's a big scary world, and it would be nice to have someone to fight the monsters under the bed with. (Though you're right: I would totally jump out the window. It just kinda sucks.)
from stepfordtart :
Might have to take you up on that one of these days - I love a good gunnel stuffing.
from stepfordtart :
Haha! I have been similarly 'inconvenienced' by guests who dont appreciate how people with no children in the house for protracted periods of time like to behave. Oh, and my leftovers are fucking awesome, ACK-CHEW-LY. Sometimes theyre so awesome I make something new for unexpected guests, just so I can eat the saved leftovers after theyve gone instead of wasting them on their sorry tardy-arses. s x
from peggypenny :
Hey, how can you be American and not have made turkey tacos?
from alethia :
I'm reasonably sure. He's also really emotionally needy, and has no ambition. Part of relationships is definitely reassuring one's partner, but I can't be doing it every damned day. And every time I do, he clings tighter, or if I don't, he goes into a spiralling sulk which sends him to bed for (I'm not kidding) 24 hours.
from peggypenny :
Dang, I left myself a note and it won't delete. How dumb am I blond? I'm so lucky, my guests show up with extra guests. How come I didn't see turkey tacos on your left over list?

No more D/L means no more (Downloading) junk on my computer from itunes/amazon, etc! My hard drive has been about 95% full for awhile now and most of the books/music/movies I downloaded I don't utilize and then I have a habit of wanting more and having to delete stuff to make room for it or buying flash drives etc. to make room! It's an expensive habit! I can see why you thought it meant "no more Diaryland!" It does appear that way! haha...but after well over a decade on diaryland, I don't think I can live without it! Even though I did try to leave D/L twice but didn't last more than a week! haha
from stepfordtart :
Balls! Saw the invite too damn late or I totes wouldve been there, a'scoffin your food. Mind you, 'Thanksgiving' is just know as 'Thursday' round these parts so I might've had a bit of trouble getting the day off. What do y'all eat at Christmas? Because we dont have Thanksgiving our 'eat until you have apoplexy' day = baby Jeebus day so Im interested to know if you stuff yourselves to the gunnels TWICE in the space of a month or whether Christmas is a more frugal affair. s x

Aaaww! Thank you! ♥ As I don't celbrate Christmas it would be a waste if you'd send a card. But nevertheless it's lovely of you. And my knee is getting better. It's turning greenish-yellow now. I'm all for multi-color.
from misfitstray :
I would definitely fly over just to see all that food you made! Plus I would like to see you and your wife doing those nasty things under the table... Well, I'm broke, no money left from buying a car. Damn! I've never been to a Thanksgiving Dinner as they don't celebrate such a thing over here.
from dogsdontpurr :
Happy Thanksgiving DangerGuy!! Maybe you could pack some of the leftovers into a cooler filled with some of that snow and overnight it to me in Los Angeles. (Hmmm...it would have to be a super insulated cooler though. It's about 78 degrees here right now at 7pm. Ha!) Cheers my friend! Hope you have a really fabulous time...even though we can't be there.

Yeah...you may be in rural Jersey, but i bet you have SPACE. we schmucks who have to be on train lines to newark (god) live in tiny alcoves masked as houses. if i open my fridge, i've got about 4 inches space between the door and the stove. it's very, very depressing. but now that we have AC, a non-yellow paint job, and actually decent interior decor, I bet we'll get our $ back on this silly suburban investment. until then, i bitch.

My thanks for the note. And yes, he has seen that side. I was super crabby with him last week (he was being sweet, I was being a harpy) and I recognised this and apologised the next day. Apparently he didn't even notice. This concerned me a little bit. I did laugh at your simple creatures comment. Usually I would agree with you, but this one is weird, because I have no idea if it would be welcomed, or cause for a restraining order. That's the problem when someone is too damn nice and passive an accommodating. Sigh. And anime is awesome. Ghost in the Shell is still my fave and Neon Genesis Evangelion for TV series. I shall look up those you have discussed though...
from stepfordtart :
My boobs make that noise when you squish 'em, too. s x
from sevenmagpies :
Ah ha. Thank you :-) Diaryland does not like to tell me when someone has left a note. P.s: That Strike Witches video was equal parts cheesy and weird, but it did make me laugh.

Thank you for adding me as well! I'm speechless that I didn't discover you earlier as it is so worth every word to read. I loved so hard about the masturbating thing. Very nice. Is there anime with male porn as well?

I just bought a new car. I was amazed that it is cheaper payments then my used car, which I traded in for 5,000 more then I could sell it. If you have good credit, you might consider this option. Right now, dealers selling cheap to make way for 1015 new cars. They advertise one car super cheap, you go right away and get that one. That is what I did. Peggy Peggy

Thank you, ser blowhard. Your advice is sound and much needed. A lot of my issue is that I actually do have some actual mental illness (ber depression and anxiety, etc), so that does hamper things a bit. Still though, it's good to be reminded to step back and look at the big picture some.

from peggypenny :
3 day spaghetti sauce crock pot recipe I'm making it now. Put in Crock Pot: 4 cans hunt's traditional sauce 1 cubed apple 2 large carrot 2 tablespoons purple onion 1 tablespoon powder garlic 1 tablespoon celery salt 1 cup red wine Put above ingr. in crock pot at highest temperature, cover and heat the sauce to boil. Meanwhile, in medium bowl: 1 lb quality hamburger 2 eggs 3/4 cup bread crumbs 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 Tablespoon Italian Herbs to taste Roll into small meat balls and drop into boiling sauce. Be sure sauce covers all meatballs and cover the crock pot, turn heat to lowest level. (notice I do not brown the meatballs, you will find them more tender this way. They do not fall apart because you have the sauce very hot and it seals the meatballs.) Brown 5 sweet Italian sauces with 1/2 slice green pepper and 1/4 sliced white onion. Cut sausage into chucks, throw into the sauce. Next morning, gently stir. Next morning, gently stir. Next morning scrap sides and bottom and stir. Serve third night on pasta with garlic bread and Parisian cheese and a simple green salad.

Yep, Bully Hill. Old Ace #45 was the best Rose they had. I love the "My Goat" wines too but maybe outgrew them. Walt was in the Taylor family and I think the family sold the winery and he broke off and started the "other Taylor wines," was sued by corporate and the rest is history. Walter S. XXXXXX did his own label artwork, then he was in a bad accident and is wheelchair bound. I think he paints still, but there were some big changes. I have found that my wine tastes have changed over the years. First white and sweet, then branched out, rose hated Merlot and such. More rose and white and a few "table reds" (sweeter) then came the Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz...

Wait, yams are not sweet potatoes?! I've grown up thinking the two are interchangeable (I'm serious). How disappointing.
from peggypenny :
A life size welch corgi is what makes the pie. I love this idea. I am gong to see if I can think of how to expand on the idea too. I just finished making 6 pies. I made up a 'Kansas Corn' recipe. It makes a cream corn on the cob in your crock pot. Just a sweet cream sauce with nutmeg, put the fresh corn husked and cut in half and cook until corn is done. Serve with sauce.

Bravo for the wine! I split a case of a NY State wine, my (at the time) absofuckinglutely favorite wine, Bully Hill. From the Finger Lakes region. The red had turned brown and there was sediment forming... I am not a (love the spelling) wineaux, but like wine. I loved Bully Hill's "Old Ace 45" Rose. I was out of the Old Ace, but have a few bottles of table red and table white. The red was drinkable, but had a funk to it and I ended up dumping it. It had the musty stuff going on and was not real pleasant. I should open up the white and see...

"The Weaker Sex" is best post yet!!! It was very encouraging as I cursed and fumed while trying to fix a stupid door thing- weather stipping molding, which I found in the corner. The guy friend of mine who bought it for me couldn't get it on- so I was compelled to give it a go tonight when I came across it. Figures, not only could I NOT get it on either, but now I can't get the other one I removed in the trying to get back on... Sheesh... At least reading this I was reminded a man around wouldn't NECESSARILY mean ANY greater likelihood of success in fixing this thing.

from whystinger :
Yes, my fault totally! One of my faults is I generally have a very good memory - I remember all the unimportant shit and forget the important crap. I was at Chateau Hathorn last in 1995 or 1996. I left Vernon in 1993. Before I had left, Chateau Hathorn at one time was a restaurant (if I remember correctly) and it closed down for a while, then was the B&B. I loved the way it looked from the road. When inside, it looked nice, but you could tell it needed attention and that was a long time ago!

Alright, I will avoid turning to panic as a method of coping with your disappearance. But should you not return, I will send the search party out. I will describe you as an interesting character who may or may not be a tormented writer.
from astitchaway :
Or maybe it's that I only know extremely tormented people who also happen to be good writers. I guess it's fair to say I can't make assumptions about the rest of the world of writers based on my own personal experiences with them. But hey, it's human nature to make assumptions, isn't it? It's all a game of statistics anyway. I'm sure at least %35.6 of writers are tormented. Or maybe I just made that statistic up. Oh alright, you caught me. I know lots of writers who aren't tormented, I just don't happen to be one of them. So stranger, now that you have bested me and know my secret, where do we go from here?

HORNETS SO MUCH NOPE.
from barefootruby :
A couple of years ago I was teaching a first aid course and when we covered objects stuck in the ear I emphasised how we don't prod or poke to try to get the object out. That evening a friend posted on farcebook how she had had a trip to the ER after the cotton wool from a q-tip got stuck in her bf's ear. So that gave a useful example for the revision session the following morning.
from barefootruby :
Before I started laughing at your pest control attempt I was reminded how a female friend told me about a chlamydia test she had had. "It required having a q-tip inserted into somewhere a q-tip shouldn't be". I assumed that she meant her ear, as everyone knows that q-tips shouldn't be inserted into your ear.

Dude, what a fucking nightmare! I hate Hornets and Yellow Jackets (Wasps) but seem to have to deal with them, but not like that! I am surprised that you hid that from the wife. Hell, I would have my wife in the know just in case... If the nest weren't too big, I would have emptied a can into the hole and plugged it. I have learned that Hornets WILL fly in the dark, especially if you have a light there. Maybe a pest control service would have been better.

Everything I ever do or say is deliberate! Not really. I'm just such a pun master that I make them without even realizing. Though, I've never gotten any "input" from someone on d-land. Sorry about the recluse! The hornets had their revenge it seems...delicious, bee-autiful irony.

Not taking someone up on the offer of sex whenever possible is a pretty foreign idea to me as well. *shrugs* I would like to have at least A ride, let alone a better one, so long as I get to keep my husb around too, I'm kinda fond of him. Oh and nanu nanoose...*shaking my head* now that's just wicked ;)

I found an old Cuisinart 11 cup food processor at a thrift store last week (with all the attachments, I should point out). The power of the motor is enough to slightly alter the rotation of the earth. It's amaaaazing.
from aryssa90 :
I'm not exactly sure how a person like me would end up with the one guy in the entire world who would not take advantage of a young, sexually inquisitive girl like myself. Life is cruel sometimes...I need a guys opinion on this whole thing. Is there really a huge different between hooking up with a girl that he doesn't want to watch or even know about but that he says it's ok, and a guy who he wouldn't watch or know about? I mean, I just don't really get that. Trying not to be too flirty with your last comment :p
from aryssa90 :
Your boob encounter of the third kind seems hilariously traumatizing. I'm sorry I didn't see your note earlier, diaryland has this agenda to make me feel unloved by not notifying me if I have a note. Alas, I did not get it. Greedy, greedy indeed. And the job well, that's still being determined but they've called my references so...

Right?! I'm quite unreasonable. In other news, glad to hear you're getting bullied by a giant boob. I bully people frequently with mine. Actually, I'm not to sure whether it's 'bully' or 'comfort'. I really just put a boob on their head. I call it Boob-on-the-Head. Sits there like a warm gelatinous hat. It's quite effective conversation stopper. Useful at family gatherings.

from her-story :
Wait. What did I miss? Cast? Surgery? Marred vocal cords? Damn man, you just can't simply live like a normal person. If you'd move to the other dark side, I'd actually get the updates that you posted WHEN you posted. (I know, I know... loyalty to DL. I still have my diary here, but rarely log in. Today, was a fluke.) Not like the fish.
from her-story :
And, that's why I don't speak French. One quarter in 8th grade proved to me and the ENTIRE class that I do not have the penchant for French. I'd probably suck more at Italian. I think angry languages are more my thing. I can say something in a totally angry voice and really ask for milk in my coffee. Gotta love it.

You said "agree to disagree". Im confused. What are we not in agreement about? I thought we were on the same page. Was it the burning vagina comments? I still stand firm that a hot vagina isnt desirable. Unless you like fire vag and thats just....weird. Was it the sock thing? I agreed that messing with a guys, ummm....tube sock? jock sock? cock sock? fun time tube? The Man Sock (this one gets a manly voice echo)?...was off limits. I could only imagine the sheer horror in coming home from wherever to discover the sacred and stiff Wacky Jacky has been violated by your mother who happened to bedazzle it. Its just 50 ways of fucked up. Was it because I reposted the poor guys misery and laughed to my amusement? Well I do apologize on behalf of my warped sense of humor.
from peggypenny :
I'm trying to read what happened to you to be in a cast and have terrible wrong things stuck down your throat. I laughed so much at your wife being a "dirty liar" regarding cooking. I just finished baking 3 sugarless blueberry & 1 raspberry pie. My father has diabetes. I'll post pictures to prove it, if necessary. haha
from narcissa :
you got your voice back and *that* is what you use it for?!?!
from peggypenny :
I am a vocalist. To help your voice, try this: do not drink anything hot or cold, room temp only. This will help prevent your vocal chords from having spasms, which can cause your voice to strain like you are describing.
from jimbostaxi :
Ty for the note about PAP, that sucks about your voice!!! Maybe a rival radio station paid the anesthesiologist to rough your vocal cords up a bit. You know how i love a good conspiracy plot! :0)

Yeh, thats always been a thorny issue. As long as your pissed is 'off' it still counts as angry, but once your pissed becomes 'up', then youre drunk. If your pissed is 'about' or 'around' then youve been misled in some way or you may just have wasted a lot of time. Pissed is a complicated colloquialism, fersure. s x

There's no such thing as 'British' language. No wonder you're not learning very fast ;-) s x PS I can say 'I like football' in Russian. Its never been particularly useful to me.
from barefootruby :
I used to know "do not spit out of the window" in Cantonese, but have forgotten owing to the few times (well, never) that I had occasion to use it. I'm sure Stepfordtart and I can come up with a few British words and phrases that you would have difficulty understanding. My Florida-living sister's ex-husband claimed he could never follow the conversation when she was talking to a British friend or relation.
from alethia :
I spent three years of school in French immersion. You know what I remember? "Un anana qui parle? C'est impossible!" (A pineapple that talks? That's impossible!) "Je suis une elephante." (I am an elephant.) and "Ou est le biblioteque?" (Where is the library?) All very handy phrases, I think, even if the grammar is a bit off. Keep up with Italian, and you soon could be as good as I am.

I said "Well I'll use a trolley and take it down in the lift." He turned to me as if I'd just invented the wheel and said "My word, I never thought of that!" Yeah.

My enameled dutch oven is a piece of Emeril cookware! Rounded top that probably won't hold coals or briquettes. Still, I love cooking with cast iron. I have a griddle I bought for making blackened fish. Sucks because you season it, then when you cook the fish, you get it so hot, it takes the seasoning off. Love the patina and smell of warming up that cast iron fry pan! I should use it more. Since your encouragement, I think I will use that enameled cast iron dutch oven!
from whystinger :
I would take the blow job over any cake or Le Creuset any day, but then again... I stayed next to Le Creuset's Charleston, SC headquarters a few weeks ago.

I have an enamel dutch oven, but I wanted a plain cast iron one to cook outside with... over fire or charcoal.

I have a wonderful day celebrating the birth of the Son of God the Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ. One day we will all before Him worshiping Him. peace Jonny
from glorycloud :
I was being myself. I just found it crazy that you confessed to not believing God and yet I do. I am not mad or anything. Just expressing my thoughts. My wife often tells me I come off intense whereas I feel I am just a quiet simple God lover. I am a man of peace. Sorry if I came off uptight.
from glorycloud :
you describe yourself in your last note as a "recalcitrant atheist"-I find it odd that I am a lover of God and according to you I am loving something that does not exist. So I must be totally mad. Every day I express love to something that does not exist. I read the Bible which I believe is a love letter to me from God and yet according to you there is no personal loving God therefore the Bible is meaningless. I believe God loved me so much He died on the Cross for me to save me from sin and eternal damnation-but if there is no God according to your philosophy the death of the Cross was an act of a mad man because Jesus claimed to be God in the flesh-so according to you all Christians are insane and the only sane people are those who confess there is no God. Therefore life is meaningless so lets all go out and kill each other or just live for ourselves till we fall into the ground and rot. Have a Merry Christmas-wait is not Christmas a celebration of the birth of the Messiah the Son of God-who was born to save His people from their sins. Well hope all is well in your godless world.

12/22/13...I am the Queen of Shoveling here on the Island. I even do a lot of shoveling for the 70 something year old guy(hermit) across the road from us. I can't use the 4-wheeler with the snowplow on the inner part of his driveway because he doesn't want all the stones up on his grass, so there I use the snowblower or just hand shovel it when I want more exercise. I have our driveway end to open up, and two driveway ends to open up for him. I have to keep clear where the pumper truck comes in to empty the septic tanks. The first area I usually clear are the decks and steps. Then I do a path to the mailbox. She(the mailcarrier) won't deliver unless she can drive up to the box. She also won't drive back here unless the plow guy has plowed. One time she got so stuck, she ended up at our house for a couple of hours. OK, back to shoveling/clearing away the snow. YES, I most definitely do the shoveling. I also roof rake the garage. I roof rake as much of the house roof as I can. I fell off the roof awhile back and so I no longer will do the back second story. Remember I also have a bulging disk so I have had to modify my shoveling technique. All is good. In the past 7 days I have been shoveling 5 of those days, 3-4 hours each day off and on. I figure with it still snowing now, I will be shoveling today and tomorrow. I take it one day at a time here with the snow. Silly you for wondering if I had nothing much to do in my life. I wanted to go take down a dead tree if it warmed up a bit, but that has been put on the back burner until I(we) get the snow cleared. I also have two lots I(we) bought to clear/cut the dead trees and fallen wood from. I do all the Fall and Spring cleanup. I plant a garden. I take care of the birds. Did I mention before that I can't take the wreath down now until Spring because there are some goldfinches that sit in the wreath. They are pretty smart. So Dangerspouse, thanks for asking about the shoveling, and I really don't mind. If you keep your feet and hands warm, and do the layers you can stay out pretty long. Take Care. =^..^=

I forgot to mention in my last note I do have in my library "Theology Of The Old Testament" by Walter Brueggemann. I like this section from the interview- Ms. Tippett: You know, I heard you speak very poignantly this morning to preachers about the fact that there are things that can't be said from the pulpit. Sometimes it feels like they should be said. You said there are silences that it's hard to break. Following on the way we're talking about, this is hard for preachers, religious leaders, to adopt this prophetic voice or draw on these prophetic themes. You know, I think even if you and I talk about this, it's kind of a difficult conversation to have in this culture, right? Mr. Brueggemann: It's very difficult, and I think the difficulty is that all of us, liberals and conservatives, all of us are basically contained in the ideology of consumer capitalism. We want that to be our universe of meaning. And when you get a poetic articulation that moves outside of that, it's just too anxiety-producing for most of us, so we try to stop that kind of talk. In a local church, obviously people have a lot of leverage for being able to stop that kind of talk. Ms. Tippett: So what is it hard for preachers to talk about here? Mr. Brueggemann: Well, I think at the broadest level, it is hard to talk about the fact I think it's a fact that our society has chosen a path of death in which we have reduced everything to a commodity. We believe that there are technical solutions to everything, so it doesn't matter whether you talk about the over-reliance on technology, the mad pursuit of commodity goods, our passion for violence now expressed as our war policies. All of those are interrelated to each other and none of us, very few of us, really want to have that exposed as an inadequate and dehumanizing way to live. I think, if one is grounded in the truth of the gospel as a Christian, that's what we have to talk about. So preachers are really put in a very difficult fix of having been entrusted to talk about that stuff. Ms. Tippett: And they also belong to this culture. Mr. Brueggemann: That's right. Ms. Tippett: And we get that these characteristics are part of our birthright. Mr. Brueggemann: That's right, they are. And preachers we are as deeply implicated in it as anyone else. That's exactly right, yeah.

I make a lemon curd so fine that it will make you spontaneously ejaculate. I try never to serve it to family, because it all just gets weird. (And I totally use Meyer lemonds. They're expensive as shit way up here in the Frozen North, but as you now know, totally worth it.)
from rockhound :
It sounds as though the scenario with the Meyers lemons was a win-win for all concerned, except for Poolie's picking up the shipping costs, I mean. As to the lemon tart, it looks heavenly. I will definitely have to try your modifications next time I build a crust, though. I'd never have thought to add alcohol to it but I would imagine it makes a huge difference.

I really do love Bill, he is perfect (to me and for me) in every single way except for sex. I married him and have stayed with him knowing that sex was an issue because, as much as I love it, It wasn't always like this but in the last 2 years or so, he's had some medical issues that have contributed to this. I have been sad alot lately, but it's not jsut because of the sex stuff. I think I have depression and I'm waiting until my insurance kicks in to go to a psych, so that makes everything worse also. I really do appreciate your note and you asking! I do love Bill and I do hope things will change but even if they don't, there is so much other good in the relationship and that really outweighs any bad :)

My wife's work boss lost an assload of weight and took coconut oil pills and some other shit. We bought some coconut oil, as the pills were really expensive. After that, I started reading. Got an oil with a bit of the coconut taste. Saute' shrimp in it and wow! Adds some sweet coconut flavor. Of course, you can buy refined with no taste. I find that for some things, the mild coconut flavor is good, sort of like adding some sesame oil to stir fries. Fish also comes out good in it. My sis claims it has a higher smoke point and has health benefits. I just liked the flavor and alleged health benefits (dental oil pulling). It just tastes good. On the other hand, I have a bunch of olive oil infused with a few flavors.

I enjoyed the Wisniowka and Jesznowka. I plum forgot about the Slivowitz (sorry, couldn't resist). Polish plum brandy! In fact, I have never had any, now I gotta find some, will put my cousin and his wife on it! I ALWAYS take the sex. Problem is, she offers it, teases about it and does not give it up.

Hey I've just seen you comment about my diary: "doesn't like radio announcers". Not true. I don't like radio announcers who enunciate poorly. We have some of the best on the BBC - Alan 'Deadly' Deddicote, John 'Boggy' Marsh, Brian Perkins. One of the best things to listen too is the shipping forecast - sheer poetry (even if we have no idea what it means). And the football (soccer) results on a Saturday afternoon are pretty good too. You can often guess the score of the second team from the tone of the announcer.
from barefootruby :
I might have to try that apple recipe some day. In UKland we can get Bramley apples - they're kind of bigger and less sweet, and more 'solid' than standard apples. They are not much for eating raw, but great for cooking with. In fact they are often called 'cooking apples' (as opposed to 'eating apples'). But I don't think you can get them anywhere else - not even in NZland where sometimes they are more British than the British. And the linguistic nerd in me liked your use of "apple meat". Confirmation of something I read yesterday that explained that originally 'meat' meant all food, not just the stuff that animals are made of.

I had a marriage like that too
from barefootruby :
Today I was giving a training course and, before we started I was having a bit of banter / mock argument with one of the students who I've known for a few years. One of the other students asked "excuse me, are you two married?". Is that sexual harassment?
from barefootruby :
Speaking as someone who from time to time is involved in investigations of this sort, I'm surprised the claim wasn't thrown out. As JM said below, you weren't referring to her breasts in any sexual way; you were referring to them as a food source for the small squidgy thing. Had you said "beautiful" or "large" or "well-formed", yes that would have been out-of-order. But you didn't and some people need to get their head out of their arse and recognise what is innocent conversation and what is sexual harassment. Unfortunately, making an issue out of things like this only serves to weaken the cause for genuine harassment cases as people assume all cases are similar non-events
from cocoabean :
I agree with you, she should have said something to you first instead of going to management. I don't consider that to be harrassment, but if it at all made her uncomfortable that in itself is a form of harrassment. But really!
from joistmonkey :
Sorry, yep, my unclearness w.r.t. not properly discerning between litigation and in-work accusation - I was trying to make the point that in theory we all deserve to work/live in an environment free from stuff we find offensive.. but life is a chaos of different people and views and it's a pipe dream to think that an individual will never hear/see anything which they find distasteful or against their views. Of course there are things which can be seen as uncivilised and which we can have generally accepted laws or work policy about, but there is also stuff on the 'edge' of that - like your case. I'm just saying that the worry and trauma you've suffered being accused seems an unfortunate price to pay for having a work environment in which a light-hearted remark is treated similarly to the out and out sexist behaviour the policies are designed to prevent. I'd contrast my most recent working environment where it was predominantly a female office and the 'man-hating' banter was sometimes a bit offensive to me, but I didn't feel strongly enough about it to complain formally. I was probably sexist back in return.. which isn't 'right', but fortunately these colleagues were OK with the 'banter'. I can accept that colleagues coming into the office from elsewhere would have found things offensive, and we were all asked to cease/tone down because of this. Mixed blessings.
from joistmonkey :
Oh, and I meant to leave a note after the heating milk debacle regarding the potential microbiological risk that heat-stable microbial toxins might cause, but I forgot. And it's only a potential risk, and you seem to not be vomiting uncontrollably. Or am I not allowed to refer to milk any more because of sexual harassment laws? :-)
from joistmonkey :
Whoa. I wanted to be typically glib and say something along the lines of "I'm sorry to hear that you're a voracious sex pest", but judging by the worry and trauma that you and the wife must've had, I'm not going to. It's a shame that we live in such a litigious/inflexible world (albeit I'd guess the US is moreso than the UK.. though we're catching up) but I understand that the principle of such laws is important, though the application can be troublesome - esp. when 'accusation' can be as damaging as 'proven' for reputation. Hope you have an easier time of it now anyhow. PS - I was wondering whether referring to breasts in the context of their lactation function is 'sexual', in contrast with their function as secondary sexual characteristics? Feeling uncomfortable about you referring to breasts in their function as baby feeders isn't 'sexual' per se?

Ha ha - I enjoyed that. Is it true or just 'true' about the milk? Sounds perfect for camping x
from rockhound :
I will ignore the floor jack because something tells me it was only a partial exaggeration this time. Next time you encounter recalcitrant meat in a can, take off both top and bottom, then use your Swiss Army knife to cut a line straight down one side of the can . It will allow you to peel off the can like stripping away alligator skin, only not quite as tough. It won't inspire a new line of cross stitched sunglasses, but could save you from becoming a murder victim.
from dogsdontpurr :
Cheers to NewWifey's success! Love the glasses. And thanks for stopping by my blog again. Our internet has been spotty at best, so I've been overly slow with getting more pictures up. And now we're on the road again which means more stories and photos are piling up. But stay tuned! More soon!
from jarofporter :
well, i'm glad at least someone finds my angst amusing... the driver is a taylormade R7 draw. http://www.golfbekas.com/files/joko_golfer/tmdraw.jpg
from newschick :
HAHAHA. Yeah that's pretty much it! My poor child! I really don't know what I'm going to do without my usual 9 hours sleep. UGH.
from newschick :
the magic wand only showed me globs which the nurse kept calling 'follicles'. they looked massive on the screen, there must be a good zoom lens. and i refuse to post a single picture of uh, the embryo/fetus/child online, so you'll just have to google FOLLICLE and see what happens. :)
from whystinger :
I used to read your diary in the past (a few years ago) but have not been real active on Diaryland. Was snooping in Stepfie's diary, saw a note and clicked in... Saw the glasses (cool!) and read down a bit about "Polish canned meat." was going to drop you a note about it, then read down further... WOW, a small world. I am not sure about expired Polish canned meat, but in the past, Poland was pretty famous for canned hams. This was before the demise of the U.S.S.R. I remember my Polish Grandma telling us about the shortage of meat in Poland, but seeing many Polish canned hams on store shelves. I have not seen many in the last 10-20 years. I went back in to your diary and read a bit more, then snorted hot coffee out of my nose. I read "on a clearance shelf in Vernon, NJ." Holy crap, I lived there years ago and have friends there/from there. I'm thinking it (grocery stores) used to be A&P in Vernon and ShopRite in Franklin, NJ. Is Sal and Joes still in business in Hamburg? I lived in the condos in Great Gorge. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
from stepfordtart :
I have seven burners. Envy me. s x
from la-the-sage :
You cook on electric? Gads, how awful for you.~LA
from la-the-sage :
The glasses are FABULOUS! Yes, the 5th burner limits pan size. Something I didn't realize until too late. I'd skip it if I were offered a do-over. I'd still get an LG stove though. The oven temp is dead accurate and the big power burners are wicked useful. ~LA
from portlypete :
Here's a tip - just take an angle-grinder to the side of your pork cans and they open up like a whore's thighs. Simple!
from melodymetuka :
The title of the song on my cd is 'Manamanap.' It is an older song that was recorded in (I think) the forties, and of course it is perfect for a bunch of muppets. ;-)
from joistmonkey :
Them glasses are super cute. I generally dislike sunglasses (something vaguely connected to not being able to see people's eyes, and the importance of eyes in communication) but I'm making an exception for those. I worry about Clostridium botulinum w.r.t. canned meat - please don't catch botulism. As for 'pork yoghurt', a victory for verbal alchemy.. from Nirvana song 'Big Cheese' to that misheard as 'Pig Cheese' to other porcine dairy products..
from stepfordtart :
Came over here to rattle on about the amount of Polish foodstuffs we get here (massive Polish community in this area) but OMIFUCKINGOD, those glasses!!!!! And Readers, too!!! WANTWANTWANT! If you want a UK distributor....................Just sayin' :-). s x PS Metallic thread ones would be good - just a little bit of bling.
from divamel :
Oh, Dangerspouse! I didn't know how much I'd missed you until I wandered across you again. *flings poo gleefully in your general direction*
from pink-sapfire :
THNX!! I'm hoping like hell that that never happens between the two of us.
from cruel-irony :
Ha! Stock-flavored coffee sounds pretty good actually. I'm sure it's got a more robust flavor. By the way, thanks for the note. I need to get into a routine of some sort for updating and your note has inspired me to get serious about it. Thanks!
from smashley719 :
Thank you for the birthday wishes and advice, it definitely gave me a good laugh, which was greatly needed. Chicken-flavored coffee sounds...interesting, although being able to keep a secret from your wife for so long definitely means that you are a master amongst men; my husband can't keep a secret to save his life! :)
from newschick :
Haha. I only work in Hoboken. And they can't get an hvac system to work so my office is always freezing so I'm cool! But dawn is a legend... Met her recently!
from dogsdontpurr :
Ok....so I got out my trifocals and flipped through the Diaryland manual and figured out how to leave a note all up in here. I left you another reply over in my "Comments" section because I wasn't sure if "Notes" still had anyone working the telegraph this late at night. Ha!
from jarofporter :
i'm flattered, i think!? lol
from newschick :
i'm probably 35% carefree around food - where i can go days and days without even thinking the word calorie. i still have my moments. but the more i learn about food, the more i change the relationship between it and me. so i'm happy. now, would you PLEASE write me an entry solely dedicated to CASEY THE WONDER CORGI??! :)
from scullerymaid :
Haha love the coffee maker story. Good entertainment while I count away the hours at work!
from newschick :
You're an ASS! And fyi i'm NEW to the game. And am spatially challenged!
from rockhound :
And once again I am reminded why I don't drink coffee. Fowl brew indeed. On the other hand - what an awesome way to insure you've got clear stock!
from stepfordtart :
Hahaha! Im torn between feeling NewWifey's pain, being also fair of skin and not really able to cope in hot weather. Also have just grown my hair the longest it has been for more than 20 years after losing it all to cancer. Also kind of taking your side too as loving the long hair is kind of a guy thing and I know y'all feel a bit bereft when we get a trim. I shan't take sides, I'll just laugh. s x PS Im sure she looks gorgeous btw.
from newschick :
I'm back caught up! and am laughing because i'm currently writing this on a CHEAP AS SHIT ikea couch that is starchy and scratchy and GROSS but we *also* hauled it away in a fake tiny "suv". so 10 years from now, i'll be f*cking my husband on a new couch? sounds good.
from portlypete :
Sex, for me, is more Swift than Swallow.
from stepfordtart :
thanks for letting me know - not sure how to fix that but the kids are back from their dads tomorrow so perhaps they will be able to sort it for me - its worth the wait, fersure! s x
from stepfordtart :
*fairly* convinced that IS a different kind of bogey ;-) s x
from marron4 :
I just did! Maybe too much for you though!
from stepfordtart :
Other people's curtains - part of life's rich tapestry. One's own curtains - rude. As is wiping a bogey under one's own dining table. s x PS Bogey = Booger
from stepfordtart :
Seriously? There's people who would spit on THEIR OWN FURNITURE? Thats just rude. Like wiping your dick on your own curtains! s x
from stepfordtart :
Hahaha! Nicely told! L's dimwit sister gave us her reclining furniture when she moved house - every bit reclines seperately and with an electric mechanism (no jerky handles!). Its massive, blackleather, and totally not our taste but OHHHHHH the lying back and enjoying in front of the tv! Joy. (plus, its wipe clean ;-) ) s x
from jarofporter :
yes, my profile is a lie, as are most things in my life. i suppose i'll have to change it...
from scullerymaid :
Thanks for the tip! I'll keep that in mind next time a guy shows up outside my door in salmon shorts. Cracks me up whenever I picture him on his little scooter in his little shorts hahaha
from her-story :
First of all... when are moving to wordpress? I have to keep remembering how to log in to DL when I want to leave you a message. You can brine a whole turkey but I've never heard of a salt soak for chicken parts. I thought you were a foodie. Dude that was a moment Chef Ramsey would call a major fuck-up. I do "marinate" steak in low sodium soy sauce because it acts like a meat tenderizer. Thats the only way this chicken-and-fish eater to partake in the meat ripping (eating beef). Keep on keepin' on super trooper. :)
from rockhound :
Umm... yeah. Salt poisoning isn't the smartest thing you could do. Next time you decided to overdose on sodium, hit the ER. 40 tsp is a lethal dose for an adult and the symptoms you describe suggest you're mighty damned close.
from stepfordtart :
Hahaha! Im so sorry, but Im laughing plenty at this.s x
from strawberrri :
Oh thank you, so kind of you to leave me a note :) I am more than impressed with your wife's car-related achievements! I haven't owned a car for ages - I let mine grow moss all over the outside then (accidentally albeit gently) crashed into the back of someone about three years ago and it had to go and live at the scrapyard (sob). Hope you have a brill weekend!
from glorycloud :
You asked me "Is there any sort of disconnect between what you read in that book and what really happens in the world outside its pages that will convince you that the Bible is just not a good predictor of things like Divine Judgement?" Good question-the Bible does not give us detailed descriptions of divine judgments but does set forth a view of Reality that we must all seek to conform to either on a personal level or a societal level-for example is our culture living according to the Ten Commandments outwardly-is our society living for the glory of the Lord God or bowing down to the image of man? If as a society we have decided to live in rebellion against the Creator God we will not be blessed but experience divine curses. I personally see all around me here in America people reaping moral corruption and not the fruits of righteous living. All around me I see men and women in a state of moral and spiritual chaos or emptiness-running after vainty-chasing after wind. All this is revealed in the pages of the Bible. Since you have rejected God I do not see if you are able to understand the teachings of Scripture. The Bible is God's love letter to His blood bought children-God Bless
from glorycloud :
Thanks for the note-I think you are asking me it seems that America or the world in general has not experienced any divine judgments due to breaking God's Law-for example the sin of homosexuality "same sex marriage"-I personally see all around me the judgments of God-for example we meaning parts of America are undergoing the worse droughts in over a 100 years-we see all around us lawlessness-for example homosexuality-God has given up people to a reprobate mind-divine judgment is seen in God withholding wise and righteous Government leaders-I also see God's judgment in American Christianity-the biblical gospel is no longer being preached in most churches today-I recommend you read for example in the New Testament 2 Timothy 3:1-9. The Bible has many themes and one of those themes is the theme of Family-marriage-a godly family or biblical view of marriage is a man marrying a woman Not same sex marriage-when we have a large portion of people living in homosexuality that is a sign that our culture has become morally rotten-which an evidence that God has given people over the slavery of their lusts-it is God who holds in check the sinfulness of manking-when God withholds His restraining hand that is a sign of divine judgment-well more could be written but I think you get my drift-God bless
from degausser :
It's so much easier.
from degausser :
It's so bewildering. I started posting less frequently sometime during the second half of 2008. By 2010 I think I posted 3 entries for the entire year. Now that I'm looking around at other diaries, I keep seeing last entries in 2008-2009. Maybe it is Facebook.since people make the tragic mistake of treating that like a diary. Maybe Diaryland is like the Myspace of blog sites, and everyone has moved on to hip things like Livejournal (is Livejournal still cool or is that too obsolete? Im really out of touch). Maybe Andrew started sending everyone hate mail, I just dont know. I do know that its sad. I wish I had kept in contact with a lot of writers. I was hoping I would come back and everyone would be right where I left them. No such luck! Now Im going to have to search for more internet friendswhat a chore. Its like when a relationship ends and you arent 100% sure what went wrong did they meet someone better? Was the spark gone? Are you just not in the same place anymore? And its not that big of a deal, but its still sad, and you know that you can easily go out and find someone new, but then you think, But they already know what I like in bed and how I take my coffee, and Im not quite sure how much effort Im really willing to put into this.
from jarofporter :
you want irony? the sad thing is, my "best post ever", isn't mine... check tomorrow's entry.

That was some batch of potatoes. Geez man, perhaps you should start cooking for the army. The ENTIRE army. You do realize she makes a great husband and you are a skirt. :P Oh, and when I need a DS fix, I tune in and listen. How goes it?

thanks xxx
from annanotbob2 :
ha ha - there's Stepfie beating me to it with the Le Creuset envy - took the words right out of my mouth! I have the red one in the middle but yearn for the low orange one on the left. Thanks for your comments - I had something else to say, but have been distracted by Stepfie so will fuck off x
from stepfordtart :
A soapy tit-wank from a stroppy cow in the back of a lorry and you might just explode with English joy! s x
from stepfordtart :
We do say lorry. We dont say Dutch oven. A Dutch oven is like a tit-wank. But not a soapy one. Soapy tit-wank is one of my favourite things to say. I like LC but I find it very heavy once its actually full of food (or boiling water!). My motley collection of pots large and small (mostly large!) is testament I suppose to a lifetimes of family cooking. I have some MASSIVE pots. I could cook an armadillo (without folding it up). s x
from stepfordtart :
I have pot-envy. SOOOOOO much Le Creuset! (or Le Creuset-a-like). Either way it beats my giant unwieldy collection of mismatched old crocks. s x PS Mmmm, potato bread :-)
from portlypete :
BTW, looks like you got yourself a winner with New Wife (TM). Cower away, and keep cooking. I made Osso Buco tonight. it was Ok but now we can't afford to eat for a week.
from portlypete :
You are so right! Those little buggers didn't even leave a recommendation on Tripadvisor. Although at least one is over-staying its welcome (it's hard to say which since they all look equally cute and fluffy). But, then again, four of the blighters, on a spit, would make a tasty snack. Just sayin'!!!

I passed!

YO! Glad to see you are still up to your antics here. :)
from fifidellabon :
Oh,,I rail, but always with a smirk. Ned reminds me just as you have of the futility, and yes, language deffo is dictated by the usage. However, I can still mine it for humour! I think that sometimes I am just too affected by the zeitgeist. This new Age of Anti-intellectualism can be frustrating. But then, on the other hand, Intellectualism can be quite precious. Heal quickly...gotta get back to those activities, y'know!

I had a weird shoulder thing once, and after months of useless physio and other orthodox treatment I tried acupuncture which cured it AT ONCE! Glad you are able to type again x

i miss you! POST!

LOLLLL!!! That's funny and nasty all at the same time! Dammit man... you made me choke on my Swedish fish. *coughs*laughs*coughs*
from rockhound :
We have something similar - two bathrooms, literally about a quarter mile from our department. I kid you not - we're in a massive structure. When I was still trying to walk, I couldn't make the round trip in fifteen minutes, much less the 2-3 minutes tops you've got in radio. They recently did a remodel - and I'd like to throttle the stupid, lazy, worthless kids who can't even bother to pick up paper towels, much less anything else. Not all ladies' rooms are that bad. Unfortunately the younger the team, the less likely that anybody has a shred of respect for the territory.
from lanienaked :
i can't believe that they wouldn't put up a sign that says display, and you are way too brave to just cut the duck yourself. i definitely would've asked the server/hostess why the duck wasn't cut. also how could you greasy smelly food into your wife's purse?! I would've been so pissed! luckily that would never happen to me :)
from atwowaydream :
It's not really a true headache if it's alcohol-induced. That's the rules.
from narcissa :
right? i know. once i have the oatmeal/chocolate/cookie combination, it's hard to focus on anything else.
from bantenhut :
Wow! What a madhouse. So you can't just play a five minute song?
from atwowaydream :
Well, drinking's what caused the headache in the first place. And I just can't do that hair of the dog thing. In defense of ladies' bathrooms. . . there are some nasty chicks, just as there are some pig-frat guys. Basically, no woman wants to sit their ass on a public toilet.
from stepfordtart :
*snort*. As a teacher, I also understand the agony of the 14 second toilet break as I need to usher out one class and then sprint to the far end of the school where there are just 3 stalls for approx 60 female staff (!) and then get back to class before the next students get into the room and steal all my stuff/kill each other/wreck the room. Oh, and our Ladies Room is also disgusting - I have never caught anyone messing it up but it must be SOMEONE. Bleuurgh. s x
from galenred :
Oh thank you, friendly stranger, for your warm greeting out of nowhere it seems. The Ford Ranger is still running and always takes me those few places where I'm needed. Fake Mountain Dew is what I called the "store brand" if they had one, such as Mountain Breeze at Safeway, but I've stopped my constant consumption of carbonated concoctions, so it's mostly coffee and water now. I suspect that I've had caffeine in me for nearly my entire life, so I'm not about to quit it now, no sirree! :)
from stepfordtart :
crying with laughter - stellar entry, old boy! s x
from atwowaydream :
I'll be reading along for sure! Amazing how some of the best writers I've encountered on the internet are from Diaryland.
from newschick :
well the spring/summer goal is to grow our own food... i can't promise anything, given i've never even owned a plant, but hey. we can try right? i hear jersey tomatoes are quite the dish! we're going to start small...tomatoes, zuchini, peppers and herbs...and see what happens. woooo.
from newschick :
i'm not laughing AT you... i'm laughing at your humor! you're a laugh and a half.
from atwowaydream :
"I didn't want to take the last one and stiff the people behind me. People who might be armed. This is Jersey." - Wonderful entry, made me giggle and I'm more than happy with that. Ecstatic, even.
from newschick :
ballet was spectacular - review posted. and for the record i've never read an entry of yours without dying laughing. so fair play to you sir!
from rockhound :
Now now. Just because new wifey has maraschino eyes is no reason to serve her up on a buffet. I had peking duck several years ago. I remember it tasting like greasy, syrup-smeared cardboard. In my case, cardboard from which I was still spitting vertibrae and other bones for the next week. I was still a teenager and was with a group including some of my teachers. The teachers were stunned that when we finished, my napkin was grease-stained but still in one piece and folded neatly. And these were heavy restaurant fabric napkins, lol.
from her-story :
Um. I would've paid twice that you did just to watch you cut into a display duck. In PENNIES! lol Thanks for the laugh, DS.
from rockhound :
Two feet of snow? Amateurs. I grew up in northeastern Iowa and remember driving over the Minnesota border where the snow was well over my head. Sidewalks and streets were walled off. Nevermind that I live in the desert now, where a dusting of snow is a major event. By the way, your background pictures should be showing up again shortly. I keep forgetting to reload them when I make any changes to my sites, lol.

Hi. Thanks for the note. Did you follow my blog before? I am still (still) working on the novel. Almost done. (In the real way, not the oh-sure-I'm-writing-a-novel-it's-almost-done-way.)
from newschick :
my baby corgi (rip) was snuggles. current fella is guinness. i want to stick to the alcoholic beverages theme, and shy away from 50s-burnout stripper type. and i am far beyond getting publicly embarrassed about anything. i'd go for the MORE embarrassing name, just to make people uncomfortable! (methinks stout!)
from newschick :
queue is an english word. i'm typing in english. therefore: acceptable. and i never lived in hoboken (bar that one time i ran away from home and stayed with my stevens nerd friend from swimming in like 04), i just work there. when we moved here we lived in new brunswick for 2 months during my summer of funemployment, and then cranford. it's jolly. my next corgi will be named stout or whiskey. :D
from newschick :
ok ok not cold cuts...more the queues at the deli counter (is that PC?) that constantly make me laugh. you peeps take sandwiches seriously serious. anyway, we've a lovely stack o snow in cranford and it's gorgeous. the fella's building us a snowman. i will place the scarf on when it's all finished. did i tell u my childhood dog was a corgi? her name was snuggles and she was the best. i love my jack russell but the next pet will be a gorgeous red and white pudgy bruiser!
from degausser :
Anything done in the name of booze is automatically forgiven. Especially if you're snowed in like I am right now. In that case, it's encouraged. Thanks for stopping by!
from degausser :
You're so right. IT'S THE ROUGHAGE! Lack thereof, that is. No, in all seriousness, my relationship is wonderful. As for me and my funk, I am just at a place in my life where I'm trying to reconcile who I've always been and thought I would be, with who I currently am. And possibly, not enough roughage.
from degausser :
Hahaha! Danger, he's 42, not 82! And puh-leeze, I haven't been in the position to go dancing, do some Jagermeister, and head down to the Film Forum for a midnight Kurosawa retrospective on a work night in years, whereas my boyfriend is in a metal band. An age difference has yet to be a source of loneliness. :) Which is more than i can say for my brain.
from degausser :
Haha! Well technically I said I felt alone - not that I was lonely. So why do you think 42 would make me feel lonely?
from newschick :
you jersey peeps and your cold cuts...never seen such obsession!!! stay warm today! it's pissin snow here!
from degausser :
I'm 23. My boyfriend, however, is 42, so unfortunately I can't blame my ever angsty ponderings on the duncery of the average 23ish man-boy :) I'm afraid I am at the root of my problems. While my teenage years were full of hormone-fueled insanity, my 20s just seem to be increasingly perplexing. Thank god for Diaryland!
from stepfordtart :
I make my own bread about 70% of the time and agree that it just tastes MILES better. If I could find a home slicer like the ones they have in the bakery shops, so I could have nice even slices, I would never buy shop bread again. s x PS Mmmmmm Sauerkraut!
from bantenhut :
Hello, fellow wanderer! I am sorry to have not replied sooner. No comments on your blog, either? Yeah, I stopped paying for supergold--but I see your name is in bold when you post, but comments don't work? Well anywho, I've now read your entries on Vitamix, Animal Crossing (nice!), and now Sauerkraut bread. I had a bread making stint last year, it was a ton of fun. I did beer bread, wheat challah, and easy irish soda bread. Yum. :) Toodles, look forward to reading!
from newschick :
u crack me up... and im with the wifey on this one!!! hope you're feeling better.
from sharayah :
Hi, Saw your note to me. Who are u? Just surprised me. Don't think I know u personally? And yes, same old garbage.

hahaha! EXCELLENT impala joke! s x
from stepfordtart :
BEYOND gross! (And very funny). s x
from rockhound :
Well darn. I'm sorry your cheap-imitation-wannabe blender went tits up, and you didn't even get to enjoy its position. I am lucky; I have a cheap-imitation-wannabe from the 70's, which is still a thousand times better than anything you can buy now. There are a few plastic pieces, but they are roughly the thickness of a tank and hold up accordingly. The thought might gross you out, but you could always check into an older used blender and run it through an industrial melt-it-down-in-order-to-sterilize-it cleaning process. These days you don't necessarily get what you pay for - if you know where to look and know how to clean the holy heck out of it.
from cybers1ut :
Yeah, I was pretty damn surprised, although why I'll never know. Thanks for the response!
from idontpretend :
Lmao, thanks for the advice. That's pretty much what I've been doing since April, for the most part. She keeps messaging me every couple of months trying to be friends or whatever. I'm so busy with school and everything, I figure there's no harm in talking to her. See if she's changed at all. To be honest, she has changed some. But I still don't trust her and she's not even attempting to make up for what she did. In the meantime, I'm def going to load up on some SWTOR. xD
from newschick :
ya the more i listen to them in the morning, the more i love it! they crack me up. :)
from newschick :
ah BOO. i suppose i'll pretend you're elvis duran or something. hahah. yeah he knows... he knows that when i go up to bed at 6pm, it's because i want to be alone. we're quite compatible...he could spend his life watching sport, and i could spend my life reading books. i'm happy that i'm married, but am also happy when the fella goes away on business for a few days. all i'll say is, he knew what he was getting into!
from newschick :
after reading your 9/11 entry, i have one thing to say: you are such a journalist. and i know because i too was (am?) of that breed. i was up for days after, waiting for the Next Big Thing. and, by the way, you've just GOT to tell me your name now, so i can radio-stalk you. :D
from dirtyboots :
Your country sounds very vibrant, and interesting, and varied. The way you write about it, I would like to visit it some time. Where I live, it's all basically the same wherever you go, plus there's only about 6 people in the whole nation. Condolences, man. This guy was an awesome character.
from newschick :
great, beautiful entry. i really appreciated it, and i'm sorry for your loss. barton sounds like a fantastic guy. :)
from cruel-irony :
What a touching tribute. Condolences to you both on your recent loss. Losing a parent is a singular loss and while it's terrible at any time, it can be particularly tough during the Holiday Season. My best to you both.
from stepfordtart :
A lovely lovely eulogy! And condolence on your loss. ((hug)) s x
from rockhound :
So THAT's what rattled the windows here in Arizona a few days ago. Go figure!! Glad to hear you got a much-deserved vacation out of the storm. But between your marathon at the office and your culinary explorations, you're going to be in trouble when it's time to go back to work. Or not - you could just go commando I guess. Because after your fire-ingestion fest it's a safe bet you wiped out the REST of those underwear.
from cruel-irony :
Thanks for dropping in. It's great to hear from you! Glad you made it through Storm Sandy. I'd love to hop the Capsaicin Express. I got the same issue when it comes to cooking; have to dial back the heat if I'm sharing with Mr. Irony.
from araquen :
Hey, thanks for reading. I think I find my old entries sad in a different sort of way because of how sheltered I was and how ridiculous I sound to myself now. I'm going to be starting up a new diary, methinks, and years from now I'm sure that one will be just as embarrassing.
from newschick :
i have the memory of a goldfish. i was confused because i posted a pic of my scones on twitter, and the same day, you mentioned scones. i was like...fair play. he tracked me down. haha. and here just because i have a journalism degree doesn't mean i actually used it! far from it...except maybe my ocd editing skills. :)
from newschick :
i meant twitter. ;) sorry, if you knew me in real life you'd learn my special lexicon. it takes time.;) i was just wondering how you knew about my scones, unless you followed me on twitter? care tell - have you discovered my true identity? :)
from newschick :
i see you've figured out who i am in real life. ;) keep it a secret! and no way, i'd never delete somebody who updates more than once every 3 years. ;) do you, by chance, follow me on the twits?
from bliss-sad :
I'd be more than happy to hand you a hot mug of cocoa and tuck you in with a belly full of fresh duck!!! Hahaha, thank you so much for commenting!
from englishsucks :
Thank you so much for your kind words. I was saying that I'm fat to Stephen's eyes - like I'm not tone enough even though Stephen has never told me that I'm fat or chubby for his taste. I just felt that way and I do have fucked up issues that I must work on which I am currently working on it. Finding positive things about myself everyday, learning to love myself better and adapt a different world - like you said life is too short to dwell on being bitter and depressed. Again thank you so much for the note. You're amazing. <3

I just got a rice cooker. Middle daughter brought it back from China. I've had it two weeks and I can't live without my rice cooker! :-)
from sduckie :
Oh yes. I have a dairy allergy... if I eat too much cheese, it's too much for my system and my throat gets swollen!!
from stepfordtart :
Flatterer! 29 and 33 respectively, since you ask. And I take it the 'Ring of Fire' doesnt feature too highly in your post-prandial exploits, then? Over here its standard post-curry procedure (or at least is the stuff of urban legend!). Happy Eating! s x
from stepfordtart :
Haha! Glad to hear youre ok and fending for yourself with reasonable success. Would respectfully suggest you keep the toilet paper in the fridge for the next few days tho, huh? s x
from rockhound :
Glad to hear you escaped relatively unscathed. Here's hoping you finally made it home safe and stinky. From what Gina tells me, some parts of Jersey are still without power, but here's hoping at least you had potable water and a barbeque grill waiting for you when you arrived
from annanotbob2 :
Thanks for the add and the comments. dangerspouse is one of the great usernames. I notice people saying you don't write here often - are you hanging out elsewhere too?
from newschick :
LOL sorry bud, i've got precisely one vicodin left - it will be an empty bottle soon. pity things are so bad for this state right now... but yes, my experience remains positive, no matter how much sh*t i undertake on a daily basis riding NJ transit and PATH. ;) (remember, i came from ireland...NJ is a few notches up the ladder). :)
from newschick :
i hear you! my first storm up in NJ and boy was it a doozie. hope you get some rest and relaxation soon...and glad that your family is okay. :) much love.
from annanotbob2 :
Hiya - I saw your name somewhere today and then there you were in the updated box, so I read and I've added you. Glad you are safe on the studio floor (ah - you're Poolie's pal, aren't you?), loved the story about the others - suddenly it felt real. All the best
from rockhound :
Nicely done! And I noted the quick-aging trick with the pitchers, will definitely give that a try next time the situation is appropriate. It doesn't change the fact that I know almost nil about wines in general - other than that I take mine dry, keep the sweet crap away from me - but thanks to you I'm getting an edjumacation.
from hg88 :
Interesting to see you're still around 7 years later. I just got on to see if I could figure out how to download/archive my diary without repurchasing a gold account but I don't think that's gonna happen any time soon. We'll see. Hope life is treating you well. :)
from hcatty :
Always a great time reading your updates :) Miss ya, DangerSir.
from her-story :
Come to wordpress... the grass is greener there.
from her-story :
Omg... I haven't logged into this site in eons... but, I did it for you, DS. Only you. Now stop busting my crackers... :p.
from newschick :
one entry and i'm hooked. can't wait to read more! :)
from autumnrein :
Oh I actually went to NYC a couple years ago for Thanksgiving. I had the most spectacular time. The people were wonderful. The energy was amazing. And....I just love that place. I would love to move there, but I'm afraid it is a bit too expensive even for us upper middle class folk. But I want to visit again. There are many more things I want to do there. I shall add you to my buddy list. I look forward to reading more from your journal as well. Night.:-)-Andrea
from melodymetuka :
Thanks for a good laugh. :-)
from rockhound :
Damn. I keep forgetting there are still a few readable people hog-tied to Diaryland. Nice radio gig - and I can relate to the buggery story. Pulled an equally boneheaded moment on one of my shifts once, albeit not to dead air. Everyone was howling, myself included. I would catch up with you on IM but hotmail decided to disown me
from crackisbad :
Mine do. My mother is always giving them yogurt, which they love. I should amend that: dairy products, including milk. Cat's don't make noise when they fart, so unless it just smells bad, I don't know how successful you will be @ blaming them. Good luck, though!
from poolagirl :
Glad to see you are still doing what you love. It's so nice to see you back in the online journal orbit too!
from alethia :
Ain't it funny, watching someone with natural talent do a job? It's a beautiful thing to watch. Almost as beautiful as it is painful to watch someone who just...doesn't get it try to do the same job.
from autumnrein :
Actually, I really WAS surprisingly confident going in, but then it kind of went by the wayside when it came time to do the procedure.-lol So, you work in NYC?? I absolutely adore that city. Oh, and thanks...it's great and fun to be back!:-) -Andrea
from melodymetuka :
Thanks for the good thought, and, happy 11th anniversary!
from integrating :
Yeah, just talkin to myself.
from poolagirl :
Holy hoppin' momma! Are you back? Are you gonna stay on Diaryland? I need to know cuz I am in the process of clearing out the crap here, but I will keep my password active if you are going to stay.
from rockhound :
Long rime no talk! I hope you're feeling better and still creating gastronomical goodies. Preferably those you are aware of!
from nilliem :
You? Are *such* a guy!!! Happy Sunday, here's hoping you are getting enough sleep, and not too much food.
from rockhound :
Have you absconded for good? It's been a while since you committed your mayhem to words
from her-story :
Glad to see your status of asshole hasn't changed. :P
from nicim :
You never cease to make me laugh. To think we share this god-forsaken state.
from rockhound :
Awww you hopeless romantic you. You bought her almonds. I should email you and harass you with the latest on the dragonspiel. Trying to get a rewrite done so I can dump it onto Amazon and be done with it. Which means plugging countless holes in the plot. Given you're an expert at plugging holes... ;)
from hissandtell :
Oh, and the finger-cutting-off business could have rendered it quite the perfect Roald Dahl story too, wouldn't it? (Perhaps not so much "Man from the South" as "Asshole from Jersey".) x
from hissandtell :
You know, I thought this was going to pan out to be quite the perfect O Henry story -- and that it was going to end with your discovering that NewWifey had sold her finger (the one destined for the ring, of course) to be able to afford to buy you almonds. So it kind of goes without saying that I'm feeling just a tad let down. But hey, Happy Anniversary anyway, you kids! x
from rockhound :
No matter how much porn you watch, no matter what they do on film, searing your meat is meant to be restricted to filet mignon and other cuts you buy at the grocery store. Human (or near-human) body parts are not designed to be cooked. Use your oven mitt for goodness sake.
from portlypete :
You just have to realise that, when it comes to MEAT, size does matter to some. I sympathise with the chef though. Go veggy next time - and just enjoy the reactions.
from haloaskew :
MEAT! So glorious! Synopsis: Elaine - moron. You - overconfident un-nimbled meat wad cooker. P.S. Stop smoking crack.
from nilliem :
well damn, that was a much needed belly laugh. I really could *see* you with the pan bouncing off you, and the flying meat...and the corgi, hehe. Happy Friday....
from cocoabean :
I'm sure the Corgi enjoyed it!
from wendyloo :
So yeah after years being away, I returned to check out something and saw on my favorites list that you were one of the few that had actually written in the last three months. Glad to see you're still up to your old tricks.
from rockhound :
Swing by my new place online and give me your thoughts on something, will you please?
from her-story :
Perhaps the bears had already SEEN you golf... and were trying to spare you hurt feelings. :) Welcome back. And, btw, if you didn't NOTICE (and since you're a guy, I know you didn't)... you are still linked to my blog. So tar-har. Welcome back, sorta... kinda. :)
from rockhound :
Gee - I basically NEVER visit here any more because the good writers have all absconded to other corners of the ether. Well, either that or have absconded somewhere. It never occurred to me that you might sober up enough to complete and post an entire entry. No, not fully sober of course. That would be a true aberration. But enough. Hmph.
from portlypete :
Thanks for the note, which had me in stitches (18 to be exact) - I keeled over over laughing and toppled through a window. Did you guess I was making that up? Anyway, the tale of your feisty missus certainly cheered me up. I've had dealings with a couple of colleens - never a dull moment! Haven't met a family of bears close up though. Just a singleton in Canada, and there were several snappy-happy tourists between me and 300 pounds of potential violence, so I felt relatively safe. In a straight contest between Bruno and a Big Bertha, who would win I wonder? Still earning a crust occasionally - thanks for asking.
from portlypete :
I feel for the corgi.: I really do. I work from time to time, on a freelance basis, but TBH, I turn down anything which I feel might be less than "fun". Life is waaay too short. Unfortunately, I learnt that particular lesson waaay too late. Thanks for an entertaining message.
from hissandtell :
For some reason, I am reminded of my Political Science classes in my first year at university. Instead of attending my Comparative Political Ideologies lecture, I nipped out for a couple of hours to watch a tennis match. (Well, to be fair, it was the Australian Open. And Guillermo Vilas was playing. And I WAS feeling rather lucky...) Anyway, that day's lecture was on Communism. And wouldn't you know it? I missed it. And no matter how I tried, I never could recover any semblance of working class cred after that. And, sadly, I still don't know anything about Communism. Can you explain it to me in your next diary entry please? Don't leave out ANYTHING. (Oh, and I never did get to meet Guillermo, either. His loss. But I did have a very nice chat to Vitas Gerulaitis in a laundromat a few days later. He was washing his socks, I think. Or maybe I was washing mine. Anyway, the important thing here is that socks were being washed.) Love, R xxx
from rockhound :
What a touching tribute to a defining moment in history. Only you could miss it - twice.
from batten :
Where the hell are you? You never write anymore and you need to... You are missed. Golf? WTF? srsly? sigh.
from jcelyn :
Holy crap, it's about time! It's been so long since you posted that I forgot how to log onto Diaryland...ah well, half a Dangerspouse yarn is better than nothing.
from rockhound :
I missed your return opus, it seems. Or perhaps I was just fashionably late. I'm still puttering around under various names. You've found my current site on Wordpress. When will you be making the jump?
from her-story :
You're back, eh? Interesting... So, if you're going to BE Tiger, then at least try to beat his mistress-count. Good to see you back, again, DS.
from hcatty :
Oh Dangersouse... *chuckle* ...the cleverness that is you...
from shortst101 :
Hey there! Nice to see you here! You need to get out more often :)
from poolagirl :
So....are you back for real or is this another yearly tease? You fox! Had me laughing until I fell out of my chair again!
from awittykitty :
"Golf makes you impotent..." Hasn't Tiger and his passel of expensive hookers taught you anything, Dangerspouse? Tsk.
from misspinkkate :
Heh, the 6 Line. The last crazy lady I talked to was on the 6 Line. One second she was asking me for directions, the next, she was telling me that John Liu is a secret Communist from China and I better start telling all the blogs and stuff.
from hissandtell :
So let me get this straight: a Welsh Corgi relocated to the wilds of New Jersey has an Irish first name and a (surrealistic) Belgian surname? No wonder he's confused. (Or was that a bastadised mis-translation on Ellis Island, and it was originally McGreet?) Oh, you crazy Americans! Love, R xxx
from nilliem :
HEY!! You are alive!! I know all about clawing up ladders (not personally, I watched and decided it was too much b/s for me!) and the time and effort and butt kissing it takes. And yeah, golf. ::shudders:: Soooo....do any of the stations you are on stream on the web? I've never heard your voice, and I'm curious...no, I'm damned nosy. Drop me a note: nilliem@yahoo.com. And have a marvelous holiday season, however you choose to celebrate!
from moosehunter :
I'm guessing you never check this these days, DS, but just lettin' you know that some of us still occasionally check to see if you've posted crazyness. Cheers, Moosey.
from poolagirl :
Jeeeze! You actually dropped in to say hello! I am.....flattered!
from hcatty :
...*sigh*... what a sad waste of all that lovely planning. Hope your Christmas turns out far better ;)
from warcrygirl :
I love a man who knows how to really flip the bird! Bird...blowjob...it's all good, right?
from awittykitty :
You forget to say whether you're wearing any clothes when you flip the bird. Ha! Just kidding. Sorry those bastards ruined your Turkey Day. That totally sucks. Hope you were able to make it up somehow over the weekend, since it sounds really delicious. :-)
from hissandtell :
Well, I guess that makes NewWifey(tm) the Head Gobbler in your house this Thanksgiving. Love, R xxx
from ship-jumper :
Happy TDay to you! So sorry you had to go into work. But when can I come over for that belated turkey feast? My GAWD it sounds soooooo good! I swear if you were a woman I would have to think about having an affair. I've done the brine salt soaking, and it really is amazing. Never flipped the bird on its sides though. Going to have to try that next time!
from lumenatrix :
A dangerspouse entry! It's a Thanksgiving Miracle! Well, enjoy your day as much as you can and spend any off air time preparing sweet revenge against the evil minion who ruined the best turkey ever. I hope you and New Wifey are well and happy. :)
from brightopal :
Darn. So the Thanksgiving turkeys aren't all consigned to the oven, I see. Some of them work in large-market radio. I hope he's properly roasted before it's all said and done.
from theratqueen :
So, what delightful plans of revenge are in the works for your errant *sick* fill-in? Personally, I'd string him/her up by the toes and proceed to prepare him/her as you would have prepared your turkey. But that's just me.
from im2qt2kr :
An entry from "dangerspouse" just made my Thanksgiving complete. Happy Gobble Day my friend.
from hcatty :
... so what ever happened to the cup of air? DUDE! We missed you! Do you realize that your previous entry was FEBRUARY SECOND? And this one was OCTOBER FIRST? ... That's like... *counting on fingers*... nine months! I could've had a BABY, man!!!
from warcrygirl :
Good lord, I'm surprised you didn't end up typing your blog entry lllliiiikkkkkeeee ttttthhhhhiiiiisssss.
from hissandtell :
Oops, that would be with a SOCK stuffed in his mouth, not a SICK. (Which, of course, is a teensy Freudian slip for, "You fucking bastard! You've ruined my whole life!") x
from hissandtell :
It's ALIVE! Hey, pantless and alive -- AND with a sick stuffed in his mouth -- oh, swoon! My favourite kind of man! Love, R xxx
from shortst101 :
Hey Hey, it was great to see your name lit up here when I logged in today. Glad to know you are still your usual crazy self. Miss our morning chats.
from brightopal :
You almost had me - until you mentioned "tea" and "sugar" in the same context. Like you, I have a well-nourished loathing for coffee, preferring tea. But only a philistine would mix sugar with tea. Then again, I might ultimately forgive you, since you didn't technically mix them...
from ship-jumper :
Oh my gawd, my favourite perverted hunk beauty is back!! I've missed you!! Thank god for sugar water to get you to post again! Stay strange, but don't be a stranger. Mwah!! Shippie (bucket)

You do realize that we're waiting for the photos now, don't you. And don'tcha think the Menudo thing is a little gay? Just saying....
from poolagirl :
It's about time you showed up, you big goofus! And just for you, I will make sure I stock the MEGA rolls of toilet paper. Just in case you come visit me.
from brightopal :
I'm realizing that your last entry was JANUARY. It's now AUGUST. DUDE. You're really falling down on the job. I'll go kick your butt on the other site since I know you're not reading here :-p
from ship-jumper :
WOW. What a great entry...but a horrific experience!! I did almost pee my pants when I read that NewWifey's vagina bit you!!! Only you my friend, only you! buckey
from nogooddaddy :
Me: (Driving on the Parkway in blinding sunlight) You: (On the radio) It's hazy with a chance of afternoon sun Open a window and look outside you fuck
from cosmicrayola :
Wow, I almost missed this. It is now 02/17 and Somehow your name came off my buddie list. I must have given up on you the last time I cleaned out the list. No problem, I'll put you back now. Wow, that entry reminded me of another one where your NEW WIFEY (TM) had to come the the rescue of the dog. I thinkk she had to use pliers then too. Glad to hear you're alive!
from hcatty :
Ooh! One more thing. Sorry about the multiple messages lol but you have... like... a TON of music, right? All kinds of stuff. Ever heard of BeeCake? They're from Scotland, and they've got some pretty awesome music. If you do know them, great, if you don't. DUDE. Look 'em up.
from hcatty :
Awww. You're just absolutely precious! (Don't worry. I won't tell a soul.) You don't have to knock off the ... ya know... stuff. It's part of your charm lol. You liked the video, huh? I WAS a little worried that my singing would come across... I dunno... chipmunk-ish. Teehee.
from hcatty :
It's the darnedest (is that how you spell it??) thing. You tell a story, and I actually SEE it playing out in my head. Every minute detail... except the sex parts. Like those smutty romance novels I read, I just skim through the sex parts... What was I saying?? Oh yeah! You shoulda kept the bunny and made stew LOL It was a GIFT from Gloria!
from hissandtell :
Hmmm ... for some reason, I'm reminded of the words of wisdom a sage old bloke used to give my husband when J was a callow young swain courting his cute little girlfriends: "You start off thinking you can eat it; if you're not careful it ends up eating you." (Mind you, this same wise old bloke also used to regularly trap J deep down in the bowels of engine compartments of the heavy earthmoving machinery they were fixing together and inflict long-winded raucous alcohol-binge farts on him too, so perhaps there's not necessarily something in that for all of us. Although you're possibly very fortunate that neither the bunny NOR NewWifey(tm) have taken THAT particular little leaf out of his book of wisdom [I assume].) Love, R xxx
from warcrygirl :
I forgot about your notes dude; I tried to leave you a message at your guestbook and it didn't work. At least she didn't boil the rabbit, that would be freaky.
from nogooddaddy :
Fuck, dude...you're right on for the way NJ looks. Could the weather up here have been any bleaker this week? The rabbit part made me nearly choke. I'll have to tune you in tomorrow on the way to work. Still where you used to be I assume?
from shortst101 :
always love seeing your name lit up saying you have put an entry here. Yes, I still read even if I don't write. Hugsssssssssss
from brightopal :
You know, it COULD be that the kamikaze avian was in fact aiming for you, merely retreating to regroup and make another attempt. After all, you do seem to have a way with birds. Witness the Vulture Incident of a while back. I'm just sayin'
from wench77 :
Thanks for the note! oooo! a new post! I'll have to find time to come and read it. An email? Dang, I am sure I have your addy around somewhere. All is fine, though a bit hectic, with the kiddo, snow and icepellet falls, doggie, trying to fit in some work. maybe take down the xmas tree... ;D hugs to you and the wifey!
from nilliem :
Ouch. That's all I got today! Hope all is well (other than the obvious) with you and yours!
from her-story :
Well, at least SOMEWHERE in New Jersey shit is happening. I'm bored with N.W. Jersey... wanna trade? And, uh, I hate to say it, but... that's what you get for walking your cat. *grins* Glad to see you survived...
from awittykitty :
oh my God. That's like an episode on "Animal Planet Gone Wrong", as hosted by Christopher Walken or something. I am so glad Gloria was ok. You? You can heal. But kitty hor-douerves are irreversable.
from wench77 :
Dang, if I knew you were still writing entries, I'd visit Diaryland more often! Funny as hell, as usual. thanks! Happy new year to you and New Wifey. Hope her girl bits are doing better and she has a healthy year! Hi to your wonder dog too!
from fifidellabon :
Happy New year! /Fifi
from jcelyn :
Welcome back DP! It's so great that NewWifey is feisty as ever and a posting from you is like an early Christmas present. And I'm Jewish!

from shortst101 :
No matter how long it is between your stories, it still makes me laugh! Miss our chats in the morning. Merry Christmas!
from brightopal :
Welcome back to the Diaryland - about damned time, too! Glad to hear that NewWifey survived her repeat expedition up Mt. Surgery and is finally on the mend. I can only imagine how bad you felt to be so inconvenienced ;)
from awittykitty :
Hey, we have an Applefest up here too. And there's always mud up to your ass. I'll send you the date for next year. Truth is I just want to see your sexhay ass dressed in a garbage bag.

Why do I have a funny feeling Wifey KNEW VERY WELL it would rain that day? The flip-flops were a dead giveaway. HA!
from poolagirl :
Glad to see you are back in the saddle (the writing saddle - not so sure I want to know about the other saddles in which you perch things). Also glad you like apples and sewing. My boss is married to a woman who manages a fabric store. See, it could be worse!
from warcrygirl :
"Let's go" she said into my ass. I farted, she screamed, and we took off. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I love you, man. So, what kind of pies will you be making?
from hissandtell :
Hey, Thomas -- I was thinking about you ALL LAST NIGHT after J and I watched Part One of the (new for us) BBC series "Three Men in a Boat" where Griff Rhys-Jones, a mad Irishman called Dara, a cormorant-crazy chap called Rory and a nervous dog named Loli rather foolhardily attempt to recreate Mr Jerome's Edwardian idyll in a skiff. (And while I don't recall an encounter with David Gilmour in the original book, I daresay he might have been contemporaneous even then...) Love, R xxx
from lumenatrix :
Hey there Danger, just want to drop a note to say hi and that I hope you and New Wifey are ok.

Ah shit! I didn't mean to write to you as the dogs. Complete your leap of faith and know it was me, okay?

Welcome back, faggo
from amberstone :
Well there you are, stranger! Too funny on the story; lol! Dan and I were just yakking about you guys the other day, worried about New Wifey. Don't wait so long to update next time *scolds* ;) Oh and I'm blogging again too. Such as it is. :)
from chakra-chick :
Gawsh! I've missed you so much...unpolished entry or not-you're still the bestest! Good to hear that NewWifey is coming along well... ~smooches~
from awittykitty :
I always blame my pharmaceuticals for potentionally dangerous international events too. Glad New Wifey(tm) is on the mend.
from brightopal :
I'm the reincarnated Radiogurl. Long story of dumb moves that could outdo your escapades, even the vultures on steriods you encountered a couple of years back. Here's hoping NewWifey(tm) is back on her feet and semi-sober again soon. (I won't wish full sobriety on either of you. What's the fun of that???) Though the way I see it, Men In Black would make a great starting point for a script. Provided there was a writer in the family ;)
from sarkasmo :
I knew there was a reason I added you to Google Reader. "Just in case he updates," I told myself. "Just in case." Anyway, sending good healing thoughts to the missus for you. I had an aunt with colon issues a couple of years ago. I *so* wanted to get there before she woke up from surgery and stick a rainbow wig on her head. Maybe New Wifey(tm) would like that!
from her-story :

Hmmmm, you haven't updated in 69 days. I'd say that's a nice place to start...divine even.
from nprmommy :
been out of the blogosphere for quite a while...hope new wifey is doing well...
from awittykitty :
How's NewWifey(tm) doing? Better I hope. Hope you're not doing anything too awfully dumb. Yours truly, witty.

Caught a traffic report this morning. Stop doing the weather...you told me is was cloudy. It was not. Then, after hearing your voice, I had to change my undies (blush)

from foofarachi :
Hello Danger, I found the link to your diary through your profile in Delphi. In the last week, I have read it in its entirety. laundry all caught up!?-NO life?-enthralled?...you decide :*) I also joined Diaryland just so I could leave you this message. Many times in my life I have been touched by the benevolence of strangers and believe in passing it on. You now have at least one stranger keeping you and Dangerspouse in her thoughts and prayers. (((((((((((despised Delphi hugs)))))))))))))
from lumenatrix :
Hi Danger, I hope Wifey is doing well and that y'all had a happy, event free New Year.
from nixtress :
Happy New Year!!
from batten :
Oi Spouse! How's Wifey? Let us know, okay? Hope you managed to have a good Christmas. Here's hoping things will be better in the New Year. Big hug to you both. -J
from tuckandsophi :
Dang! Take care - both of you! I need you on my crew!
from nixtress :
Happy Holiday wishes to you and your wonderful Wifey. :)
from wickedcrazy :
I hope she's ok. I'll say a prayer. Cause you know that really works. People say "I'll pray for you" and honestly, they really do it, they're not just saying it to sound all caring and then God thinks "wow this is a person people pray for, I'd better help them" and then poof! you get all better. And unicorns come to your house to celebrate with presents full of elf dust and lollipops. Maybe I'll just hope for you then wait til you post a funny follow up about how everything is ok.
from accentjunkie :
I go into reculsive hiding and this is what I come back to? Sending warm thought directly toward New Wifey's hole. . .the dread colon cancer runs in my family - I wouldn't be surprised if the long camera of intense discomfort ends up in my future someday. Seriously though - thinking of you guys this holiday season. . . I'm sure all is well and you'll be the only one shoving anything up there in no time.
from hissandtell :
Geez, mate. Quel bummer. I don't suppose this could have been caused by the excess pressure of hanging all those claw hammers and wood chisels off her tool belt, in a vain attempt to partially obscure her authentic tradesman's crack? Please give the feisty (if not fisty) darling my best; I'm glad to hear she's being such a big strong non-wussy bloke about it all. Love, R xxx
from goingloopy :
Ass cancer isn't funny. But maybe you just went at the alternate entry a little hard post-laparoscopy and rearranged things. Maybe next time you should use more lube, and perhaps Barry White instead of Barry Manilow. Seriously, though, I hope everything's ok in DangerLand.

Dang she's just about as bad as them kids who don't have pain receptors or whatever, and bang themselves up all the time. (hey I saw it on some Dr. TV show) wow. Um, dang, I am like um, jokeless. I am rather sitting here stunned by the nearloss of NewWifey... I am still stuck with her sitting on the sidewalk refusing to get medical care while she had popped ovaries. Stunned. Whack her over the head for me for that eh? Best of luck with the bowels. I hope you have a shitty Christmas, in all the correct and painless ways!
from haloaskew :
Didja hear the one about the Pope, the rabbi, and the colon? Um...no, wait. Here we go: So the colon walks up to bar...No, never mind. I'm all tapped out on colon jokes tonight, dude. But seriously, I'm sure it will turn out to be nothing more than a gerbil from her experimental days. Hell, it could be Lemiwinks! (Didja see that South Park episode?) Anyhoo, NewWifey probably just has some normal blockage. Nothing a power washer (with a nice vibe) can't fix. On the off-chance it's something more serious, she's tough as nails and you guys will get through this. Try not to worry. Easier said than done, I know, but you might as well worry about how you're gonna spend your lottery winnings while you're at it, right? Or her life insurance payout. OHHHHHHHH! I am evil. But there you go. Ha. hoo. At any rate, try to enjoy the holidays and not dwell. What's the point? She is going to be FINE. I don't know why I know it, but I do. I'm sending her all my well wishes. And to you, strength in those moments you need it the most. Keep us posted, bud. You know, there's a reason all these folks keep you on their buddy list, even though you don't post for months. We love ya, you make us laugh, and even though we've never met you, we care. {{{Hugs and kisses}}}} Holler if you need to talk, you hear?
from nogooddaddy :
Good luck dude. Are you still on 710? I never hear you anymore. What am I supposed to beat it to in the morning?
from nilliem :
Sending happy healthy thoughts your way. Lots and lots of them. Tell New Wifey this one: "What's all the fuss about endangered feces? That's outrageous. Why is feces endangered? How can you possibly run out of such a thing? And besides...who wants to save THAT, anyway? ~ Gilda Radner as Emily Litella http://home.earthlink.net/~tmwa/page7.html More on that page, heh
from sunshine0221 :
Crossing fingers and toes that NewWifey is just fine.
from beckers-j :
Wow, I'm so sorry. I hope everything turns out okay. I'd say that I'd keep you both in my prayers, but I'm not the praying type. So I will keep my fingers crossed. And my toes. I really, really hope it's nothing serious.
from shortst101 :
Hey, hope all will be okay with New Wifey. You can't live without her! Hugssssssss
from veralynn :
Damn, man!! Best of luck to new wifey. That sucks. As for humor as you wait for her next medical adventure, may I suggest the anal probe episode of South Park? ;)
from batten :
Oh hell... Hang in there, babe. You and New Wifey. We'll be thinking healthy thoughts her way. Keep us posted, okay? Big hug to you both. -J
from chakra-chick :
Glad you've finally decided to update...pity about NewWifeys' medical woes---hopefully this time it will also be OK. Best of luck...I'll be holding thumbs for you both.
from beetilda :
Hey, good luck to New Wifey(tm) and your fine self as well. Hey, at least you got to do the distillery tours! We did that this Spring, and Miss B has now an impressive collection of bungs. (Why does work suddenly spring to mind with that sentence?
from xat :
Dear heavens...though I suppose it'll curtail the depredations of the xmas blow-up lawn ornaments. I'll keep everything crossed, including my spleen, that it all turns out okay. **X
from joiedv :
Oh lordy, give her a big hug and kiss. I hope she is okay. Good luck.
from sarkasmo :
My aunt had colon cancer (and won) last January. After she came back from surgery, but before she woke up, we put a rainbow wig on her head. I'm not sure how funny she thought it was, but we all cracked up.
from ursamajor :
Best wishes for a non-cancerous ass...
from jcelyn :
Hope New Wifey is feeling better. Remind her to salute the Rear Admiral and don't tell her that I wound up with a dislocated shoulder when I had a colonoscopy. Or maybe you should...it's funny as long as it's happening to someone else! Take care of yourself, too. OK?
from outfoxed :
Good lord man, you're sending bits of your N'Wy off via UPS ground?? I showed this to my wife and got an immediate dispensation, two kitchen passes and a $50 bill to spend at the hooter joint. I'm perfectly willing to ship a new-in-box (Fed-Ex, next day) Milwaukee Hole-Hawg to her if she'll promise to dress you in brown shorts and carry a towel in your hip pocket for the next 6 weeks. And yeah, she'll know what a Hole-Hawg is, and she'll by God want one. Send shipping instructions stat, man in brown truck.
from warcrygirl :
Oh sweet jaysus! Hope NewWifey is back to normal soon (normal being a relative term, mind you). Hey, at least her testicles didn't swell up to the size of tennis balls! Not that I have testicles but I know someone who does. Much love and wooden nipples!
from nixtress :
Ack! I suppose that's a very good reason, indeed, to be gone so long. Big hugs to both of you.
from awittykitty :
Sorry to hear about all the medical mayhem for wifey(tm). This may fall under the bad joke category, but since its you Dangerspouse... The last time I had a colonoscopy, the nurse later told me that while they were doing the procedure and I was about 75% knocked out, I was rambling on and on about how I wanted them to do a reality show called "This is witty's asshole". Anyhoo, fingers crossed for good news.
from radiogurl :
Good grief. There's the one about the old man whose colon ruptured. When he told the doc about it, the doc said he was full of shit...
from lumenatrix :
Hey there dangerboy, just wanted to wish you a happy (late) Thanksgiving! I hope all is well in Dangerhouse and that your feast went off without a hitch... for once. :)
from nixtress :
Have a great Thanksgiving!! We miss your updates :(
from chakra-chick :
Tom, where are you hiding? I miss you man!
from sixxgunn :
Dude.. you're fuckin' funny. Thanks for the laughs!
from moosehunter :
Heya DS. Sad though it is, I keep updating too regularly to be very insteresting, but I'm starting to get to the point where I don't look up to see if you've written anymore... Half of Yorkshire's waiting on your next episode matey, and I notice an awful lot of 'where are you' notes here too. Have Casey the Wonder Corgi and NewWifey TM finally decided they didn't need you any more and buried you under the patio? If that's the case, don't answer me... Moosey
from sparklybecca :
Hi, 0069! Long time no read. After my depressingly short stint in a relationship, I pulled my covers up over my head. I think I can face the light of day again without falling back into the pit. Hope life is treating u and wifey well. Ta ta for now.
from natek9 :
Hey Danger... I haven't seen a column from you in ages. What happened.. did your typewriter break?
from mnlady1962 :
Come back!! Your life can't possibly be as boring as MINE and I still manage to update everyday. So, give us a break here!!!!

Ok, so what's happened to you?
from her-story :
Ah hem... que es DANGERSPOUSE, eh?

Almost a month since my last Dangerfix!!! I'm going cold turkey man and starting to shake. What's going on in the world of DS at the moment then? Moosey

We are flying out to visit Casey. Please chain yourself in the yard.
from nmnohr :
That was the most genuine comment that I think you've ever left. I do appreciate the fact that you still got the cheap beer comment in there though. Thanks for the comment, it was really genuine. Are you feeling ok? Heh, kidding. How've you been?
from candoor :
I love you cuz I have to make everything ok, or something like that... sure, you add me and I shrink up like a scrotum in an ice bath, but I am basking in the glory of being added you your illustrious list, really I am... and soon there'll be a dozen or two entries dedicated to you, or at least a few dozen entries that have been waiting for me to have time to upload cuz, for better or worse, I do still write almost every day... and you, you don't even have to write, you get people who hate you to write entries for you... that is talent... well, I hope you enjoy your good fortune and keep your balls in the air...

Well hello there again! Yeah, sorry about the babble, it's still a sore point...I would indeed still bite his bottom because I'm a sucker for a hot man..oh God, now I have bottom biting on the brain again...

Boredom! Hey, how did you find me. i don't think we share any readers??/
from mnlady1962 :
Babs is my hero!
from awittykitty :
Why did I momentarily cringe when I saw the name "Babs" and the word "stalker"? Guilty conscience I guess. I do think you owe "Babs" a little Dangerspousian nooner though. wink, wink.
from twoozin8tor :
Ha! The greatest piece of non-fiction I've ever read!! Bravo, Babs! [and when I think of all the shit you give me about my stammering... I should kick your well-picked ass, Zitface. *kiss kiss*
from outfoxed :
Sherpa-T sounds like the night DJ at the Bodishatva Lounge.
from radiogurl :
You know, the world owes Babs something for her hand in the creation of the Dangerspouse juggernaut. Maybe a scotch. Maybe a firing squad. We'll let her know.
from poolagirl :
There is an awfully long line of people who want you to be their next science project. I just cleaned out my refrigerator so I guess I have that one out of my system.
from oktoberfest :
I'm beginning to think you may be right about the yogurt sweet things. I'm seriously considering the merits of just eating them all in one 10 minute binge and then they're gone. Kind of like being bulimic but without the throwing up bit. Hmm. So not like being bulimic at all then. But yeah... thanks for stopping by!
from outfoxed :
I checked, and clicked, and my guestbook worketh just dandy, slim. I'd make a naked sugestion that you check your clicker-device du joir, but nekked and y'all are items best left for winter blogging. We like perky down here, yass'um, we do. But thanks for the congrats, and as a recent grampy, I'll have you know it feels just sizzling to have one hoof in the grave and another jammed in amongst my molars. Best, O'Foxed.

Thank you! I'd have to say that havingan actual motorcycle enthusiast that liked my story is a pretty big compliment!
from zencelt :
Bwahahaha! I may need that one day, when they hang down to my knees at 60ish...
from hissandtell :
You know, NewWifey(tm) might be on to something here. Have you considered selling life-sized photographs of yourself in full piratey mode to your devoted readers, so that we literary groupie-types might hold them over the faces of our paramours to fulfill our own (admittedly warped, possibly) little fantasies for 42-and-a-half-minutes or so? Love, R xxx
from zencelt :
Hey Asshole, let me clear something up. I will never conform to the Hollywood standard of thinness because it grosses me the hell out, and I enjoy my boobs too much to lose them. I just need to lose enough to reduce my blood pressure, ease up on the arthritis and stop waddling (kidding... a Zen never waddles), and eat healthy enough to lose the cholesterol meds. Thank you for caring though... Oh, and my dog would look damned cute in a roller skate.

Thanks for the encouraging note! I am officially a dangerspouse fan after reading your entries for over 2 hours now and several times laughing so hard that I sprayed Dr. Pepper on my keyboard... Thanks! :-)

Great to have you back...you were missed!

from veralynn :
Hee at $6 a pop, it'd suck me dry having a pina colada vacation of any duration. ;-) hee The cabins were EXCELLENT. There are a whole variety of them in various places in PA at varying sizes and levels of "rustic." Mine was the bare minimum and I just loved it. Plus: uber-cheap!
from wickedcrazy :
That was brilliant! Your wife is my new idol. Instead of trying to be sneaky and going reverse cowgirl so I can see the poster of Paul Newman as cool hand luke on my wall, I'm just going to lay the damn thing over T's face. To hell with subtlety.
from cosmicrayola :
Ok, I was born. I did shit. I am still alive. There. I saved you the trouble and a few bucks. That's about as annotated as it gets. And for the record, when I see your name pop up, I think of a ham. hehe.
from pinkytusk :
Nice to have you back.. PinkyT
from amberstone :
Hilarious, DS! I love reading you. :-)
from teacherlady2 :
Okay, the guestbook didn't work for me. This is what I tried to post: Your answer, while apparently requiring serious thought, smacks of jealousy, my dear dangerman. After all, my dog doesn't need a cookbook to get "lucky." Oh, what's that? That's right, it's the sound of my dog winning again.
from cosmicrayola :
Remind me not to invite you to MY book signing. So, your not going to buy my book, huh? At least you would have a different picture to look at. I think I'm cuter than the bacon.
from misspinkkate :
No kidding- god forbid we turn the lights off on the Empire State building, so people in Queens can EAT AND SHOWER. Now they're saying it might be MONDAY before everyone gets power back. And think of how long it'll take everyone to replace their food, figure out what electricals are broken, etc. What a mess, ConEdison!
from poolagirl :
Yes, your guestbook sucketh, but that's why you have your notes turned on too. Hey guy, thanks for your hilarious entry (as usual) AND your big shout. You are (how shall I say this....) a real sweetie pie.
from her-story :
OK... listen, I don't care about my goddamn dignity or my intellectual lack of internet saavy. Your goddamn guestbook won't let me post. Kick it or something! And, well, the SMOKE from the mountains didn't hit me YET silly because we aren't leaving til tomorrow...
from moosehunter :
DS, long time no hear, but the same for me too. If it's any consolation re: the hair, while at university, I got kind of Gothy for a while (no lace or white face paint or any of that shit, but into the music) and tried to dye my hair black. Sounds like you succeeded, however shiny. My hair turned one slight shade darker brown, but I turned my face, hands and bathroom blue! Also, a friend who was a German through and through and had blond hair tried to dye it black and his went a sort of sickly hospital-patient green for a month. Ah the heady days of hair colouring. Now I just let it go grey gracefully. What's the weather like in Dangerland at the mo? Here it's goddamn hot! Moosehunter
from radiogurl :
Hey, babe, I hope you kept that book around. We could substitute for the paper bag, ya know? How ever, black patent leather hair doesn't faze me. I've been married to a man from Arkansas.
from her-story :
Your goddamn guestbook sucks monkey teets. Fix it, will ya? I can only rewrite my post three times before I give up. This will be three. And, I extended it past ONE time for you because you FINALLY posted something (irony #1: I leave you a message and you respond. Me thinks you are a trained circus monkey.) Ok... First of all, "experienced" virgins? Dude, what planet are you on? Second, Poolie slapped you with a fresh carp by calling you one UGLY pirate on her video (hehe... go poolie go poolie) and that's the making of a severe Jerry Springer moment (though, I think you have to be related, sleeping together, and slapping each other with shit first before being even remotely considered for a spot on his show... if its still on the air... *shrugs*) Third... this is a combo-one. Dyed black hair on a Sicilian... and it didn't MATCH? What part of Sicily is your family from? Grecian formula?? And, I don't blame the wife for nearly mounting Tyler Florence. He's cute... AND can cook... and, say, if he wants to come show me how to cook at MY house... he'd get red carpet treatment... and probably my father gushing and diving over shit to shake his hand... I guess what I mean to say is that if my dad was a woman, he'd want to mount Tyler Florence as well. Good to hear from you again... its been a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time coming!
from xeroxjunkie :
Holy shit. He rides again.

You're so easy, Dangerspouse. So, so easy. signed another Irish girl who likes easy Italians.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! OMG, here I am laughing my ass off, making the very sound I've typed out in all caps, trying to explain to my kids why I'm laughing. Usually me just saying "Funny words" makes them leave me alone as the oldest isn't the best reader and The Captain can't read at all yet. I can't let Hubby read this or he'll start coming home from work with 8 x 10 glossies of the Weasley Twins...

from hsiutime :
Hello! Sorry I didn't respond earlier; haven't checked my notes page in a while. Trust me, I was terrified it was Bird Flu as well, but luckily it has passed and I am still alive. There is dental insurance in Japan - I guess the process of getting to the denist and trying to explain around the language barrier is what puts me off the whole thing. Anyway, you have a very nice diary. Next time I'm in New York, I'll think of you reading the weather AND traffic. Oooh...
from candoor :
you are such a lucky SOB... of course you have paid your dues and deserve every bit of the goodness you get, but still, lots of people have paid their dues in many ways and haven't put themselves in the right place at the right time... and no wonder I'm not onn your buddy list, what with hissy being every other listing or so... but then, she deserves it too, being she's paid her dues and is one lucky DOB... wishing you many luxury filled retreats from the daily whippings... I prefer NCAA college football, myself :)
from radiogurl :
Hey almost-as-ugly-as-me, someone posted on your forum, saying put up or shut up. You want to leave the forum as is, or kill it?
from atoutlemonde :
Thank you. Here's hoping.
from mehiel :
Wedding photos are up!
from mrscoble :
Well, I think I've just proven the theory that you might be a weenie. I never said I hated you. You just broke my wee little heart is all. It's okay, because it's small and mostly cold. Buck up, big man. Surely all of your maleness wasn't wasted on farming body hair.
from mehiel :
Also, thank you for that wonederful comment on my Catholicism entry. It took a long time to write, and reading your comment made me feel validated in having expended so much effort.
from mehiel :
Hey, you can now officially test the "hot bride" theory. The dress has arrived and photos are up!
from nprmommy :
you must have been drunk when you wrote that.....
from nprmommy :
dear, sweet, naive dangerspouse.....it is SO obvious you have no children....i'll invite you to my house, and you can work two part-time jobs, clean the house, do laundry, make meals, drive the kids to and from school, and then between 3:30 and 8:30 help with homework and guitar lessons, drop one child off at practice, then drop the other child across town at his practice, then drive back to pick up the first child from practice, then drive back across town to pick up the second child from practice, go home and fit in the last of the homework, dinner, and baths. can i pencil you in for next wednesday?
from mrscoble :
That's it. It's like you took my copies of all my Kevin Smith movies and just PISSED on them. I'm going to go cry and eat a half gallon of Blue Bunny vanilla ice cream, and hope you were just joking, and that you'll apologize in the morning. What a horrible, horrible way to end what I thought would be a perfect day. You're a terrible old man, and you made a sweet little girl cry. I hope you're happy now!

from danjerus :
. . . and now all you need to do is learn the difference between "comments" and "notes".
from moosehunter :
Well hey. I always thought weathermen made it up anyway. If I had a single shred of evidence that British meteorologists had ever done anything other than buy the Usborne Big Kids Book of Weather and then jammed a pin in it with their eyes closed I would be shocked. But since we once had a weatherman here who screwed up so much worse, your faux-pas is belittled by comparrison. Michael Fish received a phone call while on air on TV from a distraught housewife who'd heard a rumour that a hurricane was headed to the south of England. He reassured her that would not happen and a few hours later Britain was hit by a hurricane that caused millions of pounds of damage and was the worst we'd seen in nearly 4 centuries. You see. You got off lightly. Anyway, how's the weather now, and how's it going to be for the weekend? We're going to the Yorkshire Moors for the weekend... Moosey.

from nprmommy :
i always say the worst part of my job is announcing the weather....i want to just hang a dart board with various weather conditions on the wall, and shoot a few darts to come up with the forecast. it would probably be just as accurate. and our studio is in a basement with no windows. i tell my husband "if you hear me say 'mostly sunny,' and you look out the window and it's pouring rain-- call me and clue me in!
from acaldwell :
over here in the land o' morman, we have a weatherman who spends 20 minutes talking about rain and floods. he loves the snow and rain, and has a white blazer he wears when he wants it to snow the next day. well the next day it was 70!~! hahahaaa!!!

A Whipping Boy you say?......evil grin..... Ok pick your switch boy!!
from yeahimadork :
How does one go about joining the Dangerspouse fan club? And do we get an autographed photo of you in said Tasmanian devil boxers? I don't pay attention the weather guys on the radio, because they're all just talentless hacks, anyway. ;)
from awittykitty :
Upstate we have a orange CAT on our local news who predicts the weather and does a fine damn job...Oh, and p.s. we don't really care if you can predict snow or not sweetie, we really just want to see a picture of you in your Tasmanian boxers. :-)
from nogooddaddy :
I froze my nuts off at the Mets game on Tuesday of last week. The snow that morning was a nice touch. And, you also were wrong about the hail storms in Raleigh on Monday. HEY...If I can hear you down here, I expect accurate weather for ME.

Read your St. Patricks/Shitty Day entry to the Hubby, now when we eat chicken he holds the bones up like he's about to toss them to the dog, then shakes his head and says we must learn from Dangerspouse. You are becoming quite the quotable fellow in my household, first the calling out 'Casey No' as you cast your fishing line and now the 'No Chicken Bones for the Dog' quips that are coming out. My family really enjoys your tales, while at the same time feeling great pity for your pup.

from mehiel :
Also, thank you for leaving such a nice note. :) I hope you do return soon!
from mehiel :
Actually, it was never published. We shopped it out, did query letters, the whole bit, but it didn't take. That really held me back for a while, but it's not going to do so, this time around. I know I can finish something major if I put my mind to it, and that's what I intend to do.

You're joshin' me right? Hey, who am I to discourage a gal from bringing back chivalry anyway??? haha Point taken. K

That sounds disturbingly like an episode of "Farscape." Moving on. Even if you did have a shitty holiday, I'm glad the bones didn't break inside his intestines. The fragments are just like shrapnel, and they can shred up a stomach something fierce.
from awittykitty :
I'm so glad I read your listing bio first because I was going to say something about painting you naked and having to surpress my laughter about what I saw. Phew!
from f-i-n :
Poor doggy. Maybe you should've given him green beer instead of chicken bones.
from chakra-chick :
Your comment made me laugh...you're the best sweetie! Thanks for that so much. I think I really should consider the lesbian thing and don't worry, if I ever do---you will definately be the first to get photographic proof! By the way, you got a good recipe for deep fried ice-cream? It was absolutly divine and I would love to try and make it myself... Lovely day further to ya! ~smooches~
from awittykitty :
Oh like I would really give you a Supermodel's phone number. She'd probably end up either in traction or hideously disfigured by some stray fishing hook accident. No Dangerspouse...I think I shall protect the poor girl. p.s. Why am I STILL missing from your favorites list? You've already called me a slut and insulted my artwork. I think the initiation part should be about over, right? Sheesh.

Oh. See, my undertanding is that raw chicken bones are actually very good for dogs. What's not so good are the tweezers, jewellery pliers, nipple clamps, ropes, long leather strips, plastic surveying tape and other non-nutritive items which my omnivorous pica-pups also insist on stealing and eating. Those things tend to come out looking like, ah, misshapen Ben Wa balls and frequently require, ah, human digital intervention to, ah, oh never mind. Love, R xxx
from danddteacher :
It's actually a really cool trip. The state of NC sponsors this thing called NCCAT which provides 1 week seminars for teachers. You can pick ones that are related to your subject or completely off topic. It's more a renewal thing than a staff development thing. They have a campus in the mountains and one at the beach and usual the seminars are held there, but the one that I've gotten into is a broadway seminar so they're sending us to NYC for a week in August.
from mrscoble :
I'm concerned about your interest in the cleanliness of my grandmother's noony.
from trinity63 :
You learned a lesson smart ass:)
from trinity63 :
And....the lesson learned, do not feed the dog chicken bones:)
from nprmommy :
you are much more of a radio god than i could ever aspire to be! i identify with the lack of sleep, though. i'm the local host for morning edition, so i get into the station around 4am.....not nearly as bad as your former 1:30am, but it still leaves me sleep deprived. i really enjoyed reading about big-time radio. but it really makes me realize how hard it would be to go back to commercial radio after working at an npr station.
from hcatty :
Heeeyy! Coming from you, that's a compliment ;o) teehee
from nprmommy :
thanks for the enthusiastic comment and add as a favorite! i'm going to return the favor...
from skinnylizzie :
Hello! It's actually a bit complicated...involves many different people and a situation a couple of months ago...meh. I'm not much good at keeping secrets but this one I feel I have to keep or I could get a couple of people into a lot of trouble (and thank you...I never fail to be amazed when people actually read my brain vomit)
from xat :
How unnerving would it be to encounter chipper DMV/DEQ/MVA state government workers? It'd be a sign of the End Times, I'm certain. The other one is west coast drivers figuring out a four-way stop. Oy gevalt. **!X

Just so's ya know... if you RSVP to the wedding invite I'm sending you, the ONLY bones in the entire building will be... well... you get the idea.

Next time you try the chicken with the dog... try RAW half frozen chicken quarter... NOT cooked anything chicken... Wild dogs never had cooked meat.LMFAO. Poor puppy. Doggy enema blegh, makes me ill just thinking about it.:p Daze

Uh, I, Uh, didn't get a snapshot of her skirt. Wanna know why? There isn't anything "tapable" in that skirt and I was shielding you from inevitable blindness and eventual gayness. Feel better? (I do a lil, thanks.)
from shortst101 :
LMAO..never know what kind of shit you will get yourself into!
from chakra-chick :
Geez...talk about a shit experience! Poor Casey---now I know never to feed my doggy bones...thank Casey for helping us find that out! Damn...all your hours and effort of slaving over a hot stove gone down the drain (or trash, whatever)---so sorry dear! Think a lesson is to be learnt here...no more going all out for St. pattys' day---stick with what NewWifey did---beer and TV! Have a lovely wee further sweetie! ~smooches~
from moosehunter :
Dear God! St Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland and St Spouse drove the bones out of corgi. My St Paddy's day was so relaxed by comparison with only the barest traces of fecal matter...
from nilliem :
its sick, sad and gross...and I just can't stop laughing....I'm so sorry your St. Paddy's day has a curse...hee hee....ok, I need a tissue, I'm crying laughing here....
from so-charming :
Thanks for the welcome back! Just to clarify, hypomania is the correct word... it's a milder form of mania, the hypo prefix refers to the fact that it's "beneath" full-blown mania. It's kind of awesome, actually, unless you do stupid stuff in the throes of it. And I can't make any promises. LOL
from acaldwell :
i hope that soda bread was cooked all the way thru!~~!
from bluemeany :
Right, so, no chicken bones for puppy -- check. Thanks for taking one for the team, man!
from thedetails :
Poor Puppy! Your entry reminded me of the time when my Mom gave my Rhodesian Ridgeback the bone from a ham, and he swallowed it whole. I don't have to tell you what happened after that, because you just lived it yourself. And then there was the time that my mother in law's Jack Russel Terrier ate rat poison and I had to make it vomit, and it did vomit. All over me, the sofa and pretty much the rest of the house. All I'm saying is that I feel your pain.
from poolagirl :
For God's sake, man! Take exra care on Thanksgiving! No turkey bones! I once took care of a lab whose parents had fed him chicken bones the day before. I got him to the vet just in time - with punctured intestines. They saved him but it cost about $1,800. This could only happen to you. Your wife was smart to lock herself away with the beer.
from goingloopy :
Damn you for updating while I'm at work. I share an office. I'm new here. I had to do some massive fake coughing so I wouldn't have to explain what I was laughing at. I hope the puppy has stopped with the projectile pooping. I would suggest some Imodium, but that would probably result in another expensive trip to DangerVet. :)
from xat :
Ow! Ow! Ow! My abs hurt! Ow! There's snot running out of my nose, I've been cackling for 8.32 minutes and my neighbours are concerned about my sanity (not that they weren't before). Poor, poor corgistein. **!X
from danddteacher :
That has got to be THE FUNNIEST thing I've read in a long time!
from awittykitty :
St. POOPtrick's Day....hahahahaha. Ok. I'm done.
from veralynn :
Laughed myself silly. I shouldn't have read that entry at my desk where I had to struggle to stifle the laughter. Entries like that should come with a warning label. ;-)
from la-blue-eyez :
That poor dog! I laughed, and actually felt guilty for it! But then I realized... I was laughing at YOU!!! :) We had corned beef and cabbage on St. Patty's day, but no soda bred. So how about if we just pretend that your house and my house split the meal...?
from mrscoble :
Yeah... you see, there's a huge difference between wild dogs and Corgis, who have been domesticated for hundreds of years. Their far more tender when it comes to digestion than their less civilized counterparts. At least you didn't kill him... this time.
from cosmicrayola :
That poor dog! I imagine one day, I'll see your name in red and come in to find the following: "I couldn't take anymore. Dangerspouse finally pushed me too far. He's gone now, but my belly is full and NewWifey(tm) and I are dong just fine without him. It turned out he was right about one thing. Bones won't hurt you if you take amall bites and chew them very slowly. His jaw was a bit tough though....... Casey.
from beckers-j :
Oh, God. Yeah, I'd say that my St. Patty's day was WAAAAAY less shitty than yours. What a nightmare! And your poor dog! That's really unbelievable. And you know what else is unbelievable? That you give your dog Lorna Doone's! Any unwanted Lorna Doone's you may have should be shoved in the direction of my mouth - not your dog's. ;)
from lumenatrix :
Oh mah Lawd. Poor, poor Casey. I'm glad he's ok, but man, that is funny. Oh, and the trick to boiled cabbage? Boil it in the corned beef water and pull it out about a minute before you think you should. Then eat it with vinegar. Not dog poo, vinegar. That's where you messed up. ;)
from beckers-j :
Holy moly! That would have scared the bejebus out of me for sure. ;)
from la-blue-eyez :
Is this the part where I'm supposed to say "Yes Master"? :)
from beckers-j :
I didn't hear about the "terrorist attack/HazMat" exercise. When was that? That's pretty crazy, and I probably would have hit the roof, too.

Mouth is watering. *So* need that recipe! :) The contest is on!
from la-blue-eyez :
Are you one of the voices in my head?
from zencelt :
Yeah, you're right. It was my fault. That big baggy t-shirt, sweat pants and old sneaks were pretty enticing. No, really! That's what the 5 dollar girls wear here on the boulevard.
from chakra-chick :

OK. That comment deserves a resounding "Fuck You!" Thanks for the birthday greetings though. You aren't off the hook for Tuesday, BTW.
from malthus :
DS...in regards to the "Justin" page - if you look at the comment I write about, "...you can sample his pros here." The word "here" links to his blog page. His Diaryland address is jwinokur.diaryland.com. About the voice tape...write me at for_malthus@hotmail.com with any advice you may have on putting something together, as I have ZERO experience. I'm thinking about a voice DVD, with menus that link to a cover letter, resume, and all the voice clips you need to make your ears bleed. Ciao baby!
from pinkytusk :
haha.. my computer would probably crash!

Thanks for your note. For a pretty tough gal, this one really took the wind out of my sails. Your comments are right on the money; and I appreciate you saying it.
from her-story :
If I didn't like you, I'd tell you to go fuck yourself. So, considering you're still on my good side, I'll just laugh at you, in a moderately convincing way, and pretend you're really funny. Ya schmartass...

Aw, thanks for adding me. I'll try to have sex more often to keep you interested. ;)

"Feet have sole", huh? You're really somethin'. I'm adding you. ;)
from moosehunter :
Hi there matey. Just wanted to drop by and ask how the pirate trade was going? I presume you've switched to that lucrative career anyway, since the last note you left me started with 'Yar'. I scanned down for the words doubloon, lubber and scurvy dog, but couldn't find them. As we used to say about Moose T in our office, Avast behind!
from hissandtell :
That's Rick with a silent "P", right? Hey, congratulations on the new thingy, darling. Naturally, though, indubitably fine Dangerspouse buttocks and all large splashy advertising promos a la Carrie Bradshaw on a bus aside, I'm neverthless quite saddened by any "position" which restricts your opportunities to expose yourself in any capacity. (As, I'm sure, we all are.) Love, R xxx
from mrscoble :
It's okay. I married a redneck, too. I think he's insane. Who else walks on a jacked up toe and nearly loses it before seeing a doctor, only to have the nail ripped out, and insist that he must continue to do morning PT, even though it is against doctor's orders to do so? I mean, other than... well, um, never mind. I'll go back to my corner now.

"I am a Left Wing Liberal. Very left wing liberal." What are you talking about? You're fucking SATAN!! I mean, maybe you aren't actually fucking him... or her... then again, maybe you are... do. So. You're a liberal, huh?

Oh my gosh, you're Magic! I got an A. :) Congrats on you return to an almost normal schedule, too. Oh, and stick to your liberal guns, my good man.

Hello, Danger!! Always good to hear from you. By the way, I know what a petard is!
from beckers-j :
Congrats on the new job! Although I must say that I did happen to find bald-headed Natalie Portman sexy. ;)
from smedindy :
Aw, now, it's not a Brokeback Mountain kind of affection - just a mutual respect and beer or six or twelve. good luck on the new gig!

Its ok ds, I'll be fine. I don't think its my stereo as much as its the area where I live.
from chakra-chick :
NewWifey is my hero! Glad she no longer resembles someone out of a bad sci-fi movie! Congrats on the new opportunity---glad you are happy with the turn of events. Hope you have a fantastic weekend dear...and wish New Wifey a Happy St. Patricks' day from me! ~smooches~
from nilliem :
Whoo Hoo for your dangerself! Good to know NewWifey is back to herself. And I too, backtracked, ala Witty. Ummmmmmm...::evil grin::
from moosehunter :
Wow man! Better conditions? Sounds good. Enjoy the new work schedule. I've just been offered the opportunity to make mine a little worse, but that's actually good with our company. It's means less human interaction with pointless butt-holes and therefore less chance of a jail sentence for multiple murder! Nice to see new-wifey/frankenwifey's finally ok. Some day I'll write an American Horror Story about it and you'll recognise bits and curse me for stealing your history and the royalties! Life is getting better day be day! Nice to hear you online again man and I've exhorted other people to leave me notes other than you. Moosehunter. (Weary and wacky and wielding a serving spoon)
from bluemeany :
Aww, look at you, Mister Pluggy Pluggerton! You think because you're some bigshot radio man you can convince me to write bad erotica? Well you CAN'T. But you CAN make me say congrats on the new happy work schedule -- Congrats!
from mrscoble :
I knew it. The pain I'm feeling right now... it's the same one I feel every time someone I like is a damned commie. ::sobs::
from outfoxed :
Let's see. Hours get better, more exposure, same pay rate. Hmmm. Have to intro for Rush and Bill. The horror. Have you not yet learned that whoring is honorable? Boy, I sure hope your bosses see your upwardly mobile self as a BAD thing! Why, they'd likely start thinking weird things, like, "Hey, Mike Wallace just retired, howzabout rollin' the dice on some lefty from Jersey? He's gotta be more spiffy than Michael Moore." And they'd be, of course, correct.
from awittykitty :
When you mentioned your illustrious DangerAss, I immediately backtracked one entry thinking I had perhaps somehow missed a nekkid shot of your lovely ass. See what a one track mind I have? Congrats on being a big shot New Yawk radio guy. I only wished I lived closer so I could hear your dulcet tones.
from her-story :
Hey, rollicking mounds of man flesh... why aren't you on FM stations? Huh? Do you not realize that my 2001 vehicle dry heaves when I turn on an AM station?
from poolagirl :
Look at what I have to put up with - from the dangerspouse himself: << You called me and I was ironing my pants. >> Er..."ironing" is a euphemism for "creaming", right? Heh. Awww, thanks for such a sweet note, Pie Rat! Really, that was an ego stroke on a massive scale. I can't believe you even remembered I called! So few women do *sigh*.....
from radiogurl :
Well damn - congrats on the cushy new job. And as to the bad erotica *cracking knuckles and flexing bullwhip and handcuffs* If that ain't right up my twisted little alley, I don't know what is. I'm sooooo there, baybeee!!
from poolagirl :
Rick Forest? Who thought up that lame ass name? It sounds like something from "The Young and the Restless" - something that Fabio would use. *puke* You're right about one thing (probably many things but let's just stick to one) - when you get too good at something they can HANG you with stupid shit. I've heard your voice, and you're a heart melter. You called me and I was ironing my pants. What a sweet moment for me to remember for the rest of my life.
from acaldwell :
well, now, i will haveta change innernet radio stations now. i will be disapointed if yours dont have a listen now linky.

Now, T-man, you KNOW that I live in your area... and have heard your voice through MY radio... twice... so, what will I do now that I can't occassionally and accidentally tune in while you're doing the news? HUH? WHAT WILL *I* DO?!?

Well, I would start hanging out at the truckstop again, but I'm waiting for my, um... infection to clear up. You were a good customer, darling, but you gave me more than a (your) tip, dincha?

And about that fishing thing..Take it from a transplanted (Proper HAHAHA!)southern girl. An old fashion cane pole works far better then those new fangled ones. Although my hunter/fisherman husband would totally disagree. They are so sports. Professional sports at that. How about an update. You always make me laugh outloud!!!

from zencelt :
Only you... I do put out warnings before I go off the deep end. Hey, I will take a bottle of vodka and some high quality, dark chocolate. I might be PMSing...
from moosehunter :
Dangerspouse. I don't know why you're the only one who leaves me notes. Most of my readers are local (ish) and tell me things personally. You're the only one across the pond who talks. My latest entry's a bit depressing, but it explains why I've been getting nastier. Always nice to hear from you. Drop me a line. You've not said anything in a while. How's the gym and how's Frankenwifey? Moosehunter.

Awwww Tom...NewWifey Can't be all that bad? Nevertheless, I glad you approve of my 'hottie' choice. Hope you are well and will be gracing us with your presence soon again... ~smooches~

Sure, you can steal my jokes anytime, but it's about time for an update isn't it?
from talktomuch :
Thanks for leaving me a comment, I passed it along to Hubby who is now playing the wounded soul. Heh heh. Anyway, I'm glad that your Corgi is alright and I wanted to thank you for posting that entry, I shared it with my family tonight just before dinner and now my kids are running around the house playing fisherman and screaming "Casey No". The kids think that's part of fishing, sort of like when you're playing golf and you have to yell "Fore".

Alright! The proof is posted, my friend. One thing though. How is NewWifey at building a room on? Heh heh heh....
from zencelt :
Alright you pain in the ass. Not only did you pick on my spelling error (shameful you), but somehow you made me leave a scathing reply in someone else's notes. So, you back now? Huh?
from portia12 :
I ended up reading it all afterward. Your entries are the best. I especially enjoyed the shopping mall story! Thanks for your comment.
from her-story :
OH MY GOD... I'm laughing my ass off... you are a complete and utter goofball. I love that, ya know. Um... when you practice casting, as I did for MANY hours in my youth, GO OUTSIDE... and instead of tying an actual LURE onto your line, tie washers. This way no one ends up in the emergency room or on the local news. When I was a kid, I could cast very well, but I had issues hooking a worm onto the hook. It seemed so wrong to take this squirming gross icky thing onto a hook so some stupid fish could eat it. My dad was a *serious* fisherman that put his hunting-gathering skills ahead of his family. My mom STILL can't talk about her years as a hunting and fishing widow. All I know is that MY dad is NOT allowed to take the boys anywhere where there are hooks or bullets. (Trust me) The boys fish, and hook their own lines, and I don't have to touch the worms. I, instead, use salmon eggs or something jarred in a neon-colored chemical to keep it from living. Hope NewWifey is feeling better...

Hey DS, Thanks for dropping in on me and leaving that oh-so-complimentary note. Yeah, well (in regards to your comment) great writing deserves some credit - especially in the world of Blog, where great writing is somewhat hard to come by. Oh and the kid...I think it might be the cable guy's, but the jury is still out... Chris
from chicagojo :
I spent one weekend at the lake without a hook even on my line, and it was some of the best fishing I've ever done. I think we'd get along well in our waders. Also, RE: the note you left me in my guestbook, are you handing me a piece of New Wifey? Sign me up! I could use a tile backsplash in my kitchen.
from goingloopy :
Thank you for adding me as a favorite. I'm all aflutter... :)

hey, thanks for dropping in on my survey. I don't how long you've been following me (or had an obsession with Mr Squarepants) but did you know I have a SBSP fish tank. :) I will be back. Becca
from radiogurl :
Cute fish story, and I want your recipe for Corgi a la King. Also, is it adaptable for mutt or do you require choice cuts?
from invisibledon :
That is true and it is probably my distrust of mass media and not a conspiracy to brain wash us all and is just simple capitalism. I only watch movies for the most part on TV and I love the Olympics so I suffer through most of the commentary but I'm very nearly all the way to the library and have many books I'm reading right now and ones with my son too. Thanks for an actual comment and not just the typical yeah yeah or you are so full of it and then not say why either way, hope things are well with you.
from poked2x :
I'm sorry everyone gets hurt at your house, but I had to tell you that your entry made me laugh till I cried. Thanks!
from mrscoble :
Yes, Christmas shopping. With luck, I'll have it all done before summer hits.
from cosmicrayola :
How could I miss that????? I just came back after reading your comment on Poolagirl's diary. I was so concerned about your dog and excited about talking fish stories that I completely missed that excellant butt shot of yours! To hell with your dog! To hell with the fish! Nice Ass!!!
from moosehunter :
I can sympathise with your whole 'don't want to drag a fish around by the lip' thing, being mostly Buddist (with a bit of Bastard thrown in). I've never been fishing but, being allergic to most fish, it's not a surprise. I showed your fishing entry to my colleague who's a keen fisherman and he laughed until he had to go into the gents!!! (Read into that what you will.) He saved the shark pic on his hard drive at work. Don't know whether he classes it as porn (he IS a fisah enthusiast as I mentioned.) Since you went away for what seems like a decade and came back to writing a while ago I've noticed that it seems that it's others that have started to suffer other than you. Have you got over your 'pink foam/attacked by vultures' years d'you think? Moosey
from jcelyn :
I laughed so hard I think I wet my pants! You're exactly my kind of fisherman DP, we've gone drift fishing for years and mostly it's a nice day on the lake. Do you live in an insane asylum? :)
from hcatty :
Hmm. She's being squeamish about the actual scar. There's a picture of the staples BEFORE she had them taken out, will that work? Her terms are that the picture will be posted for 3 days, after which it shall be removed or I will suffer a fate far worse than death.
from chakra-chick :
Oi Tommy! First you and your ankle, then Wifeys' forehead and now Caseys' furry cheek...you gotta get your house FengShui-ed or something! Yeah-at least you caught something-even if it just happened to be that of a four-legged doggie variety! Lovely weekend to ya! ~smooches~
from im2evil4u :
Whats a normal day in the DangerHouse like?
from hissandtell :
Ernest Hemingway would be proud of your blokin' accomplishment, darling. I bet HE never caught a dog - well, not on a line, anyway. Fishing shallow muddy outback billabongs for barramundi and yellowbelly and sleepy cod presents quite the challenge for a sheila like me, who learned to fish in the wide open spaces of the ocean and is used to assessing the water for depth and clarity and temperature before choosing the appropriate line, lure and hook to haul in all those Pacific sharks and stingrays and dugongs and dolphins with gay abandon. (Oh, come on; I always throw them back. I don't even eat fish - or chatty marine mammals either, for that matter.) Anwyay, all I've managed to successfully hook here in the bush is my husband's willy quite a few times when my casting has been obstructed by pesky high banks and bloody ubiquitous gum trees. These days I'm deemed simply too dangerous to be allowed to arm myself with a rod of any kind, so I'm restricted to sitting on the bank catching marron on a bit of string with bread on the end. Bastards. Love, R xxx
from cosmicrayola :
Ahh the memories. Picture it, Lake Winnapasakie, New Hampshire in the summer of '89. Me, my Fenwick Golden Eagle graphite rod, my Possum Belly 52 compartment tacklebox fully loaded and enough Hula-poppers to last a lifetime. I worked nights as an auditor at the resort. Spent every day down on the dock. Never caught a thing. Back in Portland, incoming tide I could fill a pail with Mackeral in 30 minutes. Yup, salt water fishing is the only way to go if you actually want fish. I feel bad for the pup. Hope he's ok after this.
from mrscoble :
"I don't know" says it all. Gorb says that's almost a legitimate answer. I'm just happy to hear you caught something.
from goingloopy :
Gee, and all my cats ever get stuck in their mouths are pieces of plastic bag that, despite years of evidence and many piles of cat chuck to the contrary, they still consider to be a digestible food stock. But, on the plus side, NewWifey got some practice pulling metal things out of someone's head, so when she goes for the needle-nose pliers, she'll have her technique down. Hopefully, though, there will be no further catastrophes at DangerHouse in the near future.
from nicim :
i'm trying to hard to find something to say. but speechless is the only adjective coming from my brain. NewWifey to the rescue!! Yes... XXOO N
from wildrosie :
First, I feel terribly slighted since you never sent ME any Mako shark steaks. Then again, I do prefer Thresher shark, but one can't be picky, can one? Now, unless you've gone Asian on us, I hardly think you would enjoy corgi steaks. I'll wager they are too tough anyway. My cat suggests marinating Casey in a pleasant sauce...but she's Himalayan and French, so what can you expect? But seriously, poor Casey! Hopefully the punctures won't get infected. ~Rosie~
from yeahimadork :
Your wife kicks ass. And it's clear who the femme is in the DangerHouse. *coughBetteMidlerlovercough*
from hcatty :
O_O ... To be honest, I'm a little queasy right now, with the image of not only staples in your wife's forhead, but a hook sticking through Casey's mouth. BUT! Becca wants to compare scars with NewWifey, as she had staples in her stomache after surgery last year.

I would think fishing in a Jersey waterway, you might be able to hook an old Mafia informant with a block of cement tied to his leg or something. At least they wouldn't put up as much as a fight as poor Casey.
from outfoxed :
Hmmm. Catch and release stuff. It's sporting but seems to be favored only by those who carry discount cards at the local fishmonger. Come on down South and I'll put ye on some ferocious bass that'll surely rattle your Rapala. Just leave the dog to home, okay?
from poolagirl :
OMG! Poor Casey! I'm glad NewWifey came to the rescue. And why, dear one, do you have WELDING GLOVES? At first read, I thought you said WEDDING GLOVES. I thought: What in the hell are wedding gloves? And then I read it again and saw what you had really written, and it made more sense. But now, it doesn't make sense! Most people do NOT have welding gloves. Only you, Mr. Danger. Only you. Mkae sure NewWifey uses a needle-nosed pliers when she performs her own brain surgery later. And for God's sake, don't try to help her!
from doobeedoobee :
Great to see you back Dangerspouse. Hope NewWifey is feeling better and thanks for consistantly bringing me to laughter tears.
from jcelyn :
Hope NewWifey is feeling better. Lucky you were there to play Superdangerspouse to the resue!
from hcatty :
OH you make me laugh! Usually at inopportune times, but there is ALWAYS laughter! Rest assured, the suspense is so high, it could've been a member of the mile-high club a LONG time ago. ;o)
from f-i-n :
Actually, it looks like a silver crown on her head, the kind that a princess would wear...Hugs to you!
from chakra-chick :
Awwww...I'm sorry Tom sweetie, but this long distance thingy really wasn't working for me at all...untill we will be together agian; he's just keeping me company, K? By the way, no kidding, the GREEN TEA thingy really works-I lost 3.5kg in about 9 days (but thats coz I excercised too). Have a lovely weekend dear. ~smooches~
from star-cross-d :
for easy weight loss. drink green tea. alot. it speeds up your metabilism. totally awesome, not gunna lie its the easy way out. i, eternal chubby kid, lost a whole pant size in a like 3 weeks.... excercising never did that for me (stupid fitness) but yeah. just htought id share that.
from hcatty :
OUCH! Poor NewWifey. Hope he gets all better real quick like so you can have a gym again ;o)
from onewetleg :
maybe she could just wear a very stylish helmet whist stopping herself from breathing by inhaling toxic particles. just a thought. she wears one while riding motorcycles, right?
from smedindy :
Thanks for the comment. Don't be a stranger! And ouch, staples in the head!
from moosehunter :
No unnecessary humour (from a lardy British guy). Just nice to see you write again man. See ya in the funny pages, Dangermountain...
from wench77 :
Wow, does this mean you're gonna get even fatter? I mean, is she gonna get the work done on the gym? (see I'm more concerned about you than her hairline... lots of people pay big money to get surgical steel body mods and jewelry like that! She's lookin goooood!) Or maybe you could put her up high somewhere and run UP and down and UP and down tending to her every need? (beer, sinus stuff, large macho mechanical playtoys, more beer) Thanks for a great entry. It is so wonderful you all create so many catastrophes with such good humour (do you REALLY get along that jollily at home??)... we appreciate the chronicling when you get around to it. cheers! ps, I still owe you something in exchange for the DangerMix.
from hg88 :
Hello! :) It is good to hear from you! Thanks for checking out my myspace. I don't update it as much as I should, but I do update it more than I do here... I dunno, I've just lost my writing motivation, which is sad because I'm forgetting a lot of really cool things. Ah well, I guess. Hey, in two months when you're on next (:P) you should run over to myspace and send me an e-mail with YOUR e-mail, and maybe we can hook up on MSN or something? Well, not hook up, but you know what I mean. I think. Stop being dirty!!! Heh, anyway, hope things are going well with you. I will hopefully talk to you later! ~Sasha
from yeahimadork :
As a redhead, I resent your disparaging comments. If I weren't so pigheaded, truculent, belligerent, bumptious, stubborn, and obstinate, I'd be offended. And that pic of the wife in Poolagirl's diary just shows how clearly sedated she has to be all the time to live with you. I've long suspected, but now I know for sure. She's got a nice rack, though. If you were a real man (insert joke here) you would have shown YOURS. I look forward to your next update in 48 days.
from awittykitty :
So if wifey(tm) is frankenwifey? Does that make you DangerIgor? Glad she's ok and I think a Higgens library sounds pretty groovy. Maybe you could bench press "War and Peace".
from amberstone :
Wow, glad NewWifey is okay! I was so unprepared to read that she got hurt. My best to both of you here's to a quick recovery. *raises a beer*
from bluemeany :
You have no idea how badly I want a reciprocating saw now. NewWifey(tm) is my hero.
from mrscoble :
It's not just redheads. Girls raised to know their tools and destruction methods are stubborn. Besides, the respirator makes it hard to see what you're doing.
from nilliem :
Hey!! Ouch. Dude, I hope the girls and all are getting back to normal.
from poolagirl :
Dang! What a nasty-ass accident - told only the way YOU can tell it to make me laugh. Dang! Sore-boobed wifey must have one hell of a headache. Give her a gentle hug for me and hand her the remote for the TV.
from bigpimpinmba :
With all the random injuries, I think your (and wife's) last name must be (Dangerspouse) "E. Coyote... Supergenius". And I'm glad to hear that I have a great rack in your dreams of me, you big feyg.
from her-story :
OH GEEZUS MAN... I'm so glad you have compassion for your injured wife (*waves to wifey*)... hope she feels better soon!
from cosmicrayola :
Hey! Everone likes a little ass, nobody likes a wise one. (Brat)
from chakra-chick :
As we in South Africa would say - "EINA" - (translation-Ouch)---poor Wifey! I hope she feels better soon. Don't you dare stay away for so long again! Miss you lots! Take Care. ~smooches~ Faz
from shortst101 :
WOW.....I swear you guys always have something going on. Glad that she's doing okay. Hugsss, miss ya.
from goingloopy :
Redheads are not stubborn. We're NOT. We are just passionate in our beliefs. That said, I hope NewWifey(tm) makes a full recovery and that the removal of those staples doesn't hurt as much as it looks like it would.
from radiogurl :
The Frankenwifey look is a good one for her. And the more I read about her, the more I'm wondering if she's related to MC... Stories soon to follow...
from outfoxed :
Oh man, I hope she heals quickly. Thassa wicked cut.
from cosmicrayola :
So all redheads are stubborn idiouts, huh? I resemble that remark! Take it back or I'll hold my breath til my face turns blue! Seriousley, I'm glad she's ok. Alcohol = powertools = disaster. Basic Math 101
from wildrosie :
Jiminy Crickets! I think you might need to get a mistress just to take care of Frankenwifey! Then again, having you as her devoted slave might work OK too! *LOL* Oh, and when she's finished there, I have a bathroom addition that has been sitting for 2 years now...But truly, I'm glad that it wasn't as bad as it could have been, and hopefully she will be back to normal soon. ~Rosie~
from haloaskew :
I saw your comment to Crazy4Muffin tonight (2/5/06). You lurking bastard whore-man! POST. NOW. Or no blowjob for you, sailor.
from crazy4muffin :
A rotten egg isn't anything the ingredient "copious amounts of bourbon" cannot cure. And if that glass comes off your face leaving a hearty nutmeg mustache, then you have made the ultimate nog. Or was that just my family.
from wendyloo :
well I ended up staying around here for now, just went cheap and stopped paying, but thanks for caring about lil ole me :)
from amberstone :
You said: "Or maybe I'm actually - despite all protestations to the contrary - just that low class after all." Maybe. But *real* low class is when you must have the can of jellied cranberry on a tray, cut up into slices right where the can indenting the jell. Now, THAT'S class! Heh...
from hcatty :
And one more note, just for old time's sake. Teehee.
from hcatty :
OH! And my mom makes the BEST eggnog. Alcohol free. Because I can't get her to make it with. Or give me the recipe.
from hcatty :
Happy New Year really really really really really late.
from lasweetthing :
I will be locking this diary up soon! You can find me at jalepenogirl
from smiletenshi :
Beautiful! This will surely grace my table next Christmas, regarding I have a moment between diaper changings. <3
from chakra-chick :
Thanks for the recipe...I mysef have never had eggnog ever-I did, however, have a taste 'egg-flip'. Thanks for the recipe, I might try it out sometime...omitting the booze, of course. And where is the cookie recipe? You can't hold out on us...
from hg88 :
You! Happy new year to you as well, darling. :) I haven't been updating much, but what little I have been is at http://www.myspace.com/reneedarkmoon if you are interested at all. *shrug* Anyway, I'm glad to hear from you! I miss your updating regularly a lot, as you just have a unique way of putting things that makes me laugh. I hope you're doing well! ~Sasha
from clarity25 :
I'm so glad you're back, Mr. Spouse. Happy New Years. Best wishes to you and NewWifey(tm) in the year 2006.
from onewetleg :
the talk of egg yolks and rum. so hot. come fuck me danger
from acaldwell :
i dont drink the goo, but i have my own goo, spam and cheese sammichs and ice cold milk!!
from haloaskew :
I only forged a solid relationship with Nog in my early 30's. I'm lucky to pick some up at the store before beginning to slurp down the bottle of spiced rum I buy during the holidays, so I'll pass on the homemade treatment (until I get some patience). So are you BACK now on a semi-regular basis at D-land, or merely teasing us? You are SUCH A MAN WHORE. Hence, I heart you.
from candoor :
Merry Happy New Year (again :)
from nilliem :
Happy New Year, man! Someday I'll have the chance to try the 'real' nog...till then, the goop it is!
from treewillow :
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! And where are my cookies? I want whipped shortbread cookies :).
from poolagirl :
You have turned into Martha Dangerstewart! Holy crap, Batman! "Saffron" eggnog? This is coming from a guy who put a ferret on his face and posed for a pirate picture? Dang, man!
from lumenatrix :
The only kind of egg nog I can stomach is the uncooked kind. Mmmmmmm.... raw egg... Since most eggs are pasturised at this point I have no problem staring down the threat of salmonilla. I laugh at it through my liquored up haze. Hahaha. As kids, though, we had root beer floats. My mom doesn't like nog in any form.
from awittykitty :
Egg Nog? Ya mean Christmas spackle with a bird flu chaser. MMMM. Yum. (wretch). I think wifey(tm) is definitely onto something there, Dangerspouse. Oh well. Have a great 2006. Love, wit.
from nixtress :
Let me add to the last note: unbroken and UNSURGERIED appendage. And Ick-yay on the og-nay. I can't even stomach the storebought, cartoned stuff. I have that neverending image of eggs in my head that just won't let me put it near my mouth. It's an egg phobia, maybe. Or maybe, it's a snot-like-consistency phobia. Who knows? At any rate, enjoy yours and I'll settle for a nice vanilla creme from Starbuckets.
from nixtress :
Happy, happy, happy, happy Unbroken-appendaged New Year! May 2006 overflow with lots of grace, oral sex, good health and happiness for you and your wifey. :)
from her-story :
I kinda thought that's what Runny Honey was... but it was more fun waiting for you to explain it. *pffft*
from her-story :
And, I, too, should thank Dr. Tubal Ligation... tho a little too late.
from candoor :
Happy Merry Merry Happy and every day too, may 2006 be stupendous year for you (and all those you love :)
from candoor :
I never had real egg nog... in fact, I don't remember the last time I had cartoned egg nog... many years, at least... does egg nog come in chocolate? :)
from her-story :
What the HELL is "runny honey?" By the way, HAPPY 2006, or rather, I hope that it's happier than 2005. Does that make sense? :)
from chaosdaily :
i love eggnog because my mother used to make the raw kind like you do to get nutrition into us when we were sick, and it was easy to drink with a sore throat. yummy! i drink the storebought stuff, but much prefer homemade!!
from yeahimadork :
Jesus, it's about time you turn your notes back on. Eggnog is disgusting. Besides teeming with raw eggs, I can't drink anything called "nog". I don't even know what that is, but the word nog is enough of a deterrent (unless of course, it's called "cheesenog", then all bets are off. Mmmm... cheese). Toll House cookies rock the house. They taste just as good (ok, I'll say it - usually better) as homemade, and don't make a mess of my kitchen. Which is why I show the people I care around the holidays how much I love them - by spooning dough out of a tube onto a cookie sheet and baking for 9-11 minutes. Tasty! ps - I'm glad to see you updating again.
from niceguymike :
You have me at a disadvantage, sir. *I* had to make do with just myself, a Pie-Rat hat and a digital camera held at arm's length. I had no magnificent facial hair, a lovely crew member, an eye patch or any of the other things that graced your photos. Oh, and I completely hate eggs, so I'll pass on the nog. I'll raise a toast to you if I ever get ahold of more Whidbey's Loganberry Liqueur, though. Indiana is not one of the great wine states of the world, unfortunately.
from wendyloo :
I prefer the fresh from my local dairy variety with some Capt. Morgans. Yummm. Too much work for the orginal.
from mrscoble :
I'm one of the unwashed that prefers the store bought goop as well. No shame here. I was raised on it, and can't let a single holiday season pass without bringing some home at least once. This year, I tried out SoCo's stuff. Without the whiskey, of course.
from cosmicrayola :
I used to make my own. Much better. I made it without the acohol though, because my kids loved it too. I would add my Captain Morgan spiced rum to my glass. Ahhh. I can taste it now. These days, I buy the store-bought. Although it's ok, it never quite lives up to the home-made.
from bluemeany :
Hooray, an update from you! Drink some extra nog for me this year, okay? In fact, get totally PLASTERED for me this year. And make out with people. And then I will be vicariously fulfilled. Happy New Year!
from la-blue-eyez :
I hope you and your wife have a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year!
from smiletenshi :
Sad excuse! Get your arse back here. Needless to say, your airplane expose had me rolling in the computer chair. Tell me, did you ever end up getting off - or just her? O_o
from lasweetthing :
I think thats just a poor excuse guys use, cause they can't keep there word or commitments! Besides, if I did cut him off...it would only be for like one time, not days, weeks, months, etc... I'm not cruel. Trust me, my hubby has the best world, I just think he should be a little more appreciative. Have a nice day ;o)
from hcatty :
Missed you, you crazy man!
from candoor :
and let that be a lesson for ya!... oh wait, I forgot to reprimand you for staying away so long... and you are right, you do attract a lot of lesbians, after all, I am a lesbian in a male body... these snippits from conversations that may never have happened make sense in some alternate universe, ultimately, but right here and now, welcome back my friend and hope your show never ends...
from lasweetthing :
Nice to see you back ;o)
from chakra-chick :
yay! I'm so glad that you have returned!
from tuckandsophi :
It's about damned time! Sheesh! You can't retire! Who would we pick on then? Who to plunder? Ooops! You caught poolagirl writing with our log-on. Bitch!
from mrscoble :
Holy crap, you're alive, and for a change, you didn't do it to yourself. I'm impressed. The hubby, he loved the guest entry on hissandtell's diary. Good stuff.
from la-blue-eyez :
I'm glad you're back! I've missed ya!
from bigpimpinmba :
Welcome back. Nice entry...... Dick.
from her-story :
Damn and I just left a note at hissy's telling you to TURN them on again. I guess you miss us, eh?
from radiogurl :
Well I'll be darned. Not only have you been retrieved from semi-hermitdom, but you've turned your notes on again. Bravo and all that rot - but I'm still the ugliest ;)
from nilliem :
OOOOhhhh, you just made my week!! I'm so happy to see you are back!
from beetilda :
It was excellent! Rah for Hissy, for getting you back!
from nicim :
at long last - i know what all the ruckus is about. Long Live Dangerspouse. unlike your other rabid fans, I can wait through your long silences by simply reading your archives. After which....I sic on you the boobalicious wonderfulness of hissandtell to assure more regular updates.
from hissandtell :
Smooch, possum. Come back quickly to us with a "How I very nearly blew off my own dick with a particularly explosive Catherine wheel during the fourth of July fireworks at Dangerhouse, except that NewWifey(tm) narrowly managed to put out the flames with her nasal secretions because she was snorting so much" story, please darling! Much love, R xxx
from nixtress :
Miss your updates like crazy. I hope you and yours have a great 4th of July weekend. Be safe and know we're all patiently (some impatiently) waiting for you to come back.
from allegedwife :
Did you fall into a hole or something? Come back........please
from pandionna :
Yo. Where you at?
from lumenatrix :
I hope all is well in the Dangerhouse. Come back soon...please...pretty please
from hg88 :
Dangerboy! I miss you! :( You have vanished without a trace! All I can say is that I hope you, NewWifey(tm), and Casey are okay.
from plucky4 :
Come back! Please?
from her-story :
Ok, I'll bite... are you in the witness protection thing?
from wench77 :
Is it my imagination or have you disappeared? Oh, it is MY FAULT!! I have not yet sent your thankyou prezzie for the Dangermix and you are pouting... or maybe sobbing in disappointment! Maybe I'll just wrap up the Fat Chicks in Bondage and send it, and then you can watch it and have something to post about....
from haloaskew :
Are you ever coming back, or must I resort to inventing a contraption that will allow me to gulp my own piss, in order to duplicate the feeling you give me? But then again, it's not quite the same. You're like Mountain Dew...with a extra weird twang. I believe the secret ingredient is dog spunk. (COME BACK, even if it's only to defend yourself and the contents of your stomach)
from bluemeany :
Damn, your wife's disease sounds even worse than the Kuwaiti Crud. By the way, I checked, and they don't sell burqas at the bazaar. Would you like a lovely bronze camel souvenir instead? Or maybe some fake silver jewelry? I bet I could buy someone's daughter if you need one of those. Just let me know ...
from nilliem :
Dear Danger, I owe you tribute, no doubt. I missed 7 of the total, and the songs now rock my kids world. Best house cleaning mix I've ever had. Do you like rhubarb? Spicy rhubarb? I'll email you for specifics, but just thought I'd admit in public what you'll be getting. Eventually
from bexkaos :
dammit danger, could you update more than once a month, not that i live vicariously through you, but the suspense as to how your going to maim/murder/disfigure/russle up a sweet supper is really... i wouldnt say killing me... annoying me sure... le sigh..
from imaphatpig :
Funny that you should offer because laundry happens to be my FAVORITE HOUSEHOLD CHORE ever! I shit you not. I LOVE doing laundry.
from xquzme :
Best descriptive writing on DLand. You're a helluva writer, Danger. BUT. Could you PLEASE add some kind of a warning about weblinks? The "pepper in ass" link is probably not something I want my IT boys to know I hit at work. A-hem. (What is UP with people anyway?!) Glad NewWifey(tm) is on the mend -- and as for you, mister, really the only answer to a sprain is copious amounts of painkillers. And beer.
from iambucket :
Nope. No way. Regardless of your profession...and my understanding of your rules....I'd kick your butt if you disappeared when I was ill. The LAST thing I'd give ya was any bootie too, that's for damn sure! Sorry, but yet one more point to add to the "101 reasons DangerSpouse is an ass" List! Glad wifey is feeling better...quite an experience! Too bad you didn't break your mouth too when your accident occured. Oh but why is it, despite all of that, that I still adore you so?? *sigh* Must just be that small warm place in my heart you keep tugging at. Btw- because of your actions, you will NOT be getting any more pictures, my friend! *w*
from sasori-gal :
Hi there! Thanks for your note~ it made me feel so much safer (NOT) that I swear I'm going to sleep in bug net tent for the days I'm here!! More importantly, thanks for introducing yourself and your great diary! That last entry had a little of everything~ hope you're out of DangerLand.
from kitchenlogic :
Thanks Tom! I'm going to a) slow down and b) stay off the moon! And when in the hell did you drop off of my Buddy List? Probably when I felt the need to alphabetize the damn thing. No wonder you hadn't updated in a while! Well, you had - I just didn't realize it. Must go re-alphabetize that damn list!
from smiletenshi :
wtf, DS? Ew... figging? :\
from nypizzas2 :
Thank you Lord Spouse. A comment from you is worth a million from a mere mortal.
