from chailife :
Hey, glad you're back! Been wondering how things were going with you. Happy New Year!
from christonabun :
Christonabun can now be found at http://www.Myspace.com/christonabun Cheers!
from freshhell :
Why do you think I'm a vegetarian? I read, "The Jungle." Twice.
from freshhell :
Clearly, you have to mention badgers. I've got where I am today because I've answered the inevitable badger question at each job interview.
from freshhell :
*shudder* i hate clowns. very much. make them go away.
from doodlebeedoo :
I somehow managed to dodge this disease. My bridesmaids' dresses are black. Yay me!
from doodlebeedoo :
Check out your comment on my profile... hehe...
from chailife :
I ordered some buttons for me and all my librarian friends! Hee!
from christonabun :
EEEEEEEEEEEEE! I want a the "LIVE! CLOTHED! LIBRARIANS!" one. I'll pay whatever you want! To be really forthcoming with the information (which is never good), the best sex I ever had was with a librarian. Of course, after she dumped me, I had a sudden $300 fee on my card...vengeful lot, you.
from freshhell :
"James and the Giant Peach" is my favorite Dahl book.
from mnvnjnsn :
I fixed the link, and I just love the idea of a shirt that says "In Soviet Russia, shirt wears you." And Billy Bush? He's craptactulassy.
from freshhell :
Stay put. You will NEVER be happy if your lifes revolves around making others happy. Trust me on that one. Mother's are good at guilt but you must deflect it and live your life. Sure, someone might get sick again, but there are airplanes and they aren't always late (well, at least not 100% of the time).
from tiernsshadow :
Hehe. Banana Hammock!
from chailife :
Happy Birthday!
from freshhell :
Happy Birthday! And, yes: I, too, do not care one iota about Star Wars either. Saw the very FIRST one in the theatre. By the second one, I was over it. Not my thing.
from christonabun :
Sorry to hear that, sweetie. "I'm sure everything will be fine" and all that nonsense aside, I hope Bobito's okay. You big trooper, you.
from freshhell :
Geez, I know Henry Rollins, sort of. He was a big part of the Richmond VA punk rock scene back in the 80's. Nice guy. Smart but intense.
from doodlebeedoo :
I used to have a book called The Single Gourmet that had a lot of good recipes in it, they were all 2- serving recipes (leftovers are a good thing), and they really weren't that gourmet in terms of ingredients (but they tasted that way). I'm sure there are tons of books like that...
from chailife :
It was good to see you post an entry and a report about him, even though it looks like he has a long road ahead of time. Praying.
from christonabun :
If ever I were to pray, it would be now. Which means I am, you see.
from christonabun :
If ever I were to pray, it would be now. Which means I am, you see.
from badnewsbaby :
and I meant dad. I was just on the phone with my brother and had a huge brain fart.
from badnewsbaby :
I'm just a reader (formerly shakefist) but I really really hope your brother is alright. I know how scary it is while you're hanging in the balance so stay positive. :)
from cassidialess :
Letting you know that I've been praying for your father and your family, that you all pull through this.
from freshhell :
Sorry to hear about your dad. I don't pray but I'll send good thought vibes his way.
from doodlebeedoo :
I'll keep you in my thoughts, too.
from so-charming :
Oh, honey, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. What an awful thing for him and all of you to be going through. I'll keep you all in my thoughts.
from so-charming :
I love the Smashing Pumpkins, but alas I lack the attention span for an obsession such as yours. Sounds like fun! Hey, look up "E.V.P." if you want to scare yourself. Ties in with the movie "White Noise" and I unfortunately got curious and looked it up and it creeped me right out.
from chailife :
Luckily for me, when I went to library school we had books and card catalogs and .... well that's it, we didn't have room for anything else what with all those dinosaurs everywhere. That course sounds nasty.
from ohleenielove :
movie: the graduate. book: the kite runner. music: broken social scene (song: 17 year old anthem). art: picasso's early sketches in malaga spain. and the questions: 1. what's your top five jobs list? 2. who would YOU posion? 3. you get to be born anywhere. where do you pick?
from doodlebeedoo :
Movie: The Breakfast Club Book: Shop Girl by Steve Martin Music: Modest mouse Art: Tie - Salvador Dali & Masamune Shiro 1. What is your favorite color? 2. Why is the sky blue? 3. Are we there yet?
from tiernsshadow :
Every year my grandparents used to hire a guy to be Santa for their big family party. He'd make stomping and jingle bell sounds on the porch while all us kids went "Eeee! Santa!" downstairs, and then he'd come down, give everyone candy canes, put us on his lap, etc. The great part was my grandparents paid him in booze.
from argolam :
Wow, you like Jewish food when you don't even have to eat it?! That's a first. Matzos are the reason I dread Passover. It should be a fun holiday, but those square pieces of supposedly edible cardboard, yuck, just the sight of them ruins it for me. But if you're really into Hanuka crap, just say the word and I could send you the cheesiest stuff. It seems Israel is filled with Jewish memorabilia. Who knew?
from chailife :
So now people are putting toys on their wedding registry? Did I miss a memo?
from tiernsshadow :
I think "robosapien" is a pc term for robots - y'know, to make them sound equal to humans. But your bro and his fiancee clearly don't see them as equal if they think one can give our robot brothers as gifts.
from shakefist :
if you haven't tried them already, the lane bryant bras are tshirt material (well, some of them ar) and while they do have underwire they are extremly comfortable. they are sometimes pricey, but they last a long long time. also, walmart has some nice sports bras that are really comfortable and look just like bras with no underwire. cheap and efective!
from chailife :
You made me laugh! (Thursday)
from christonabun :
Don't be silly! Of course The Edge is the REAL superhero, and Bono just flys around distracting everyone from that fact. Do you really think The Edge could've gotten all those wonderful things done if it weren't for Bono pretending to be a douche bag? Come now...
from lemonbar77 :
umm, yeah. I'm pretty sure the choice of "14" by Bono was on purpose. It just sounds so much cooler, and he needed 3 syllables.
from chailife :
Heehee! You cited your sources! You are such a librarian!
from doodlebeedoo :
1) What is your middle name? 2) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you? 3) What is the average annual rainfall in the Amazon Basin? 4) What purpose does the uvula serve? 5) What is your bra size?
from cassidialess :
1) What made you choose to go to school in New York? 2) At what age were you diagnosed as bipolar? 3) Why did you start on online journal? 4) What's your favorite ramen flavor? 5) At what age did you learn to read? 6) What is a question that your grandmother has slapped you for asking?
from so-charming :
1)Who was your first love? 2)If you weren't going to be a librarian, what else would you be? 3) Where do you see yourself in five years? 4)What do you consider to be your greatest strength? 5)What do you consider to be your greatest weakness? 6)What do you most often think about when you masturbate?
from christonabun :
Congratulations, Ms. Neill! Perhaps I could call and bug you at work (I kid). So who's #6? Cause I'd look out if I were them...
from christonabun :
Nutella!
from discothekid :
I was browsing diaries and came across yours. I really like it.
from doodlebeedoo :
I am SO intensely jealous of you, I can't possibly articulate it properly... I want to stay on a haunted ship, too!
from chailife :
I can't believe it gave you the list of blocked words; I've never been able to get my hands on that. It's the protected intellectual property of the filtering software company!
from tiernsshadow :
When I was a kid my biggest phobia was IN the toilet - aliens. Still don't know why I assumed aliens were in there, but I was the quickest bathroom user you ever saw until I was about eight years old.
from mnvnjnsn :
I do like the new design. Very soooothing. And you can bill Patton yourself. You're invited to my funeral too. Tell you what: at my wake, you, Jon Stewart, Patton Oswalt, Zach Braff and my tabby Newman can all hang out on the swingset and drunkenly eulogize me. You will note that you are the only chick in this group. You're welcome.
from christonabun :
Thank you - it means a lot that you wouldn't stand me up. I know you dn't know me and all that happy horseshit, but it maks me feel better. And I did have a good time anyway. So thanks.
from christonabun :
How's the last week been? I'm sure it hasn't been great, but did you find all the people you needed to fill in? I know that's always a bitch...anyway, come back soon, I miss you! I've got a date next week and I really need some advice!
from evilreviews- :
Hello. Would you like a nice, totally sweet and sugarcoated review? You're not going to get one here. But come request anyway. =)
from phatgrrl :
Joey here, liked your banner, will have to spend more time in your diary. Your layout is hilarious, a few nights ago I woke up with 45 mins till I had to be at work, almost fully clothed (missing one black converse, still had one on though) and reaking of whiskey, my other shoe was in the front yard which had an imprint of myself in the grass... one of those days. I was like "cool, thought I lost my shoe!"
from artofliving :
you are the absolute fucking bomb...i jsut found you and truthfully, i've always secretly desired to be a librarian. you really are brilliant and i'm going to be cheerily adding you to my list of favorites in about 2 seconds.
from mugshot- :
happy 300th! i'd give you cake if i had any :) oh yes, and i like your layout -peace
from angrystarlyt :
Just wanted to tell you I think your diary is the greatest. You're so very entertaining, and I can't wait to read more!
from christonabun :
I didn't realize you had tattoos! What are they? You get sexier by the minute! Keep in mind, I haven't yet found anything I care about enough to get it inked on my body, except my daughter. But I kinda feel that she's put me through enough pain...
from christonabun :
I just picked up a great hardcover edition of Dracula - illustrated by Edward Gorey! Be happy with me.
from dangerspouse :
Damn, I loved "The Critic"! One of the best episodes of "The Simpsons" for me was when the Critic showed up in a cross-promotion story. Gave me a whole new appreciation of Eudora Welty. Thankfully, my iron-clad alimentary tract rarely goes a-chunderin' from laughter, so I was spared your particular experience. Funny entry!
from chailife :
I started learning -- and teaching -- computers about 17 years ago, and I started with four-year-olds! Here's the thing about old people, and others who can't get it. I don't think they're impatient, I think they literally can't get it: it's a paradigm, or frame of reference, that they don't get at all. Others, like you and I, just do. There are things I can't get at all, like dancing. It's true that these folk might get in in time, on some level, with tremendous patience, but the way computer people get it, never. That's been my experience, anyway.
from mnvnjnsn :
Back in the day, my family was at a pizza place that had one of those new-fanled "video games" called "Pac-Man." My mom stared at the console for a while before intoning "FAG-Man??!? What kind of a game is that??!?"
from chailife :
LOL - again.
from christonabun :
And here I thought I was the only one - Clay Aiken creeps me out, too. What's up with that?And no, sorry, I didn't get the Tito/Yugoslavia thing. I'm dumb.
from so-charming :
Wow... I'm so sorry to hear of your struggles with manic depression. My kiddo has that too, though apparently a milder version than yours, and I know it's no picnic. She's currently unmedicated at her own request and doing fine for the moment, but I keep a pretty close eye on her symptoms. I totally agree with you about the meds. I don't think any of them should be banned for use in kids at this point... every person reacts differently to any given drug, not everything works the same for every person, and doctors need to have as many options as possible in order to maximize the chances of finding the correct drug for each patient. The FDA is going to wind up banning something that might have been the only effective option for some kids, and I don't think that is the answer. Doctors need to educate the parents and the kids themselves of the potential dangers and then monitor the kids as closely as possible. This knee-jerk overreaction just can't be the best possible solution.
from christonabun :
I would describe you as sexy, but I've never seen you. So, with that in mind, I could say you were open, engaging, and enthralling. Does that work?
from christonabun :
Hello Martha! Sorry, I was just reading some of my old notes, and thought I'd say hello. Love, Earl.
from christonabun :
Your Grandma rocks!
from so-charming :
Just wanted to let you know I'm temporarily locking my diary to ward off potential snoopiness by my kiddo while she's at her dad's for the holidays. User name is nosy, password is rosy. :)
from christonabun :
Ahhh...Children's programming. This is why my daughter watchs Monty Python and Invader Zim.
from chailife :
My personal favorite is "I am the best employee you ever had ... fucktards." Perhaps on my last day on earth -- or hers -- this is exactly what I shall say to my Psycho Boss. Loved it.
from mnvnjnsn :
You know, if you're taking donations for Hilde's cremation, I'm sure there are more than a few of us fans who would be happy to help. Drop me a line if you need help. And I wouldn't get a cat yet. If there's an SPCA or wildlife shelter you could volunteer at, it might give you that contact you need without it feeling like you're trying to replace Hilde. Anyway, I'm serious. Let me know if you need anything.
from penguincolor :
I'm so sorry for you loss. Every animal is special. ::hug::
from mnvnjnsn :
It's awful to lose a cat, especially when you didn't get to say goodbye. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll hug my cats tighter tonight for you. The pet psychic says animals go when they're ready, so... I don't know if that helps, but... I'll just stop now.
from voidmoonbeam :
Children *shudder* I feel your pain. Why can't parental units take responsibility for their offspring. Far too many just assume that every other adult was placed on earth as their personal babysitter.
from so-charming :
Anybody who loves Al Franken and hates Bush&Co. is A-OK by me. Especially if she wears pirate undies. :)
from tom-seb-jak :
i find goofy girls cute, im also a gay male so im not sure if that really cancels my comment out.
from caspia :
I LOVE your template!
from oldpenguin :
Hey! Woo! Methinks that your diary is brilliant! So funny! I agree, the weirdos who sue Maccy D's for their own fatness are in so much denial that they are drownin' in it. Denial I mean. That was a strange analogy. Ok, I'll take my leave. See ya! OP
from voidlife :
dear god forgive all the typos!! I got my nails done ( stupid wreched things ) And I'm not quite used to them...^_^'' I'm not usually that bad of a speller...
from voidlife :
The qoute by Dorthy Parker is why I clicked. And I clicked becase that is my grandmother's name...and yeah...^_^''I am now reading your journal. And I love it! ~voidlife~
from shakefist :
heeeeeeeey gem-chan! you are supremly awesome and I for one am adding you to my list of favorites.
from sooticaj :
Holy craaap Strong Bad is awesome! He leaves me laughing for hours!
from sopranochick :
I saw your banner and had to check out your diayr. Well, then I was supremely impressed by the wonderful image of Strongbad. I scrolled down the page and then found yet another thing that drew up my respect. What was that thing? Why your membership in the Eddie Izzard ring. Despite an interesting content, those things alone make me add you to my favorites list.
from mnvnjnsn :
I bought my cats a tiny fez. It is both distressing and delightful. And now it explains their penchant for baklava.
from amblus :
Kids today, I swear. Hell, back in my day, we used to read Grimm fairy tales! People were eaten by wolves, had their feet chopped off, and got sucked into the underworld for trodding on a loaf of bread. Now THAT was scary, and we liked it! Damn wimpy kids.
from chailife :
Couldn't find a guestbook, hope this is a good place to leave a note. No one can say whether you did the "right" or "wrong" thing, it's not that absolute. But you made choices based on love of your friend and solid, thoughtful judgement. That makes it as right as anything can be. If there are some negative consequences, dealing with them in the same way is the way to go. When you're dealing with someone who seems unstable (your email pal, not your best friend) it's always hard to predict the outcome. I hope it all works out well for you and your friend.
from mnvnjnsn :
I will endeavor to talk more about shopping to deserve you adding me to your fave list. And Gorey and Dahl? Awesome. Truly. I recommend checking out Remy Charlip. He's a children's writer, but is wonderful. Very bizarre. Anyway, welcome!
from christonabun :
I apologize for the wisdom teeth. You see, it's my fault. Or, maybe not, but feel free to blame it on me. I lucked out and got mine early, so they pulled them. However, this was before the days of chocolate flavored crack. Could you perhaps inform me where to acquire this?
from christonabun :
It would be okay if it were every once in a while, but it seems like with every entry you make, I am closer to discovering my lost twin. Or something. And send me those catalouges when you're done!
from amblus :
Girl, I do this thing with catalogs where I pretend I've won a contest and I can pick on thing off each two-page spread to keep. It's like pretend shopping, with a dorky twist! Try it! Fun for the whole family!
from emiloo :
Hee! I loved the lazy susuan story!
from christonabun :
Yeah, it's gotta be the NASCAR hat.
from christonabun :
Woohoo! Check out my new template! Chris happy! *Does stupid little dance*
from amblus :
I high-five you with a tiny wooden hand! I just finished "Why Girls Are Weird" too. Good stuff.
from christonabun :
Wow. I could come up there and poke her in the eye for you. I don't mind.
from amblus :
Oh my God? Oh my God!! Colin Firth as Vermeer?? Brilliant!!!
from christonabun :
I think we're all aloud to indulge every once in a while, even when it's embarrassing. And don't worry, the "adventures of the library" are much more interesting than you think.
from christonabun :
You’re a sinful glutton who God despises. I hope you’re prepared for the eternal pain of hellfire. But we love you anyway!
from rumblelizard :
Right on, I was cheering the Texas Dems all the way. The most chilling thing about that was how the Republicans called in the Department of Homeland Security - which should NEVER have been done - and then the Texas State Troopers destroyed all the evidence of what they had done. What a mess. Anyway, defeat Dubya in 2004! Spread the good word!
from squirrelx :
Thank you for complimentin' my banners and my diary. I read your note at a moment when I was feelin' kinda low. It lifted my spirits immeasurably. Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from christonabun :
I try to just blame it on the anime.
from virginmary :
thanks for joining the libraryfolk ring. sounds like you're living it, baby! have fun filing. :)
from amblus :
I'm glad your kneecaps have been spared and Happy Birthday!!
from squirrelx :
Thank you for takin' time to leave me a note and for given me such generous compliments. Your kindness is truly appreciated. Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from starbuck87 :
omg! chucabre is the best! my uncle... crazy little mexican goat sucker.
from amblus :
Oooh, I LOVED 'Girl with the Pearl Earring'! I can't believe I forgot to add it to my list. I'll definitely try on of the other books you recommended. Thanks!
from wittleduckee :
haha i read a couple of your entries and you made me laugh, i needed that! i did a distance learning thing summer the summer of my junior year, just keep yourself motivated!! that was my problem. don't let procrastination get ya! take care :)
from christonabun :
Do peat huts stay stable in storms? Cause my house is shaking pretty badly, and I think I just need to leave. For good. Course, then I'd get hit by lightning...
from starbuck87 :
HA! lol, I think it would be great fun to call people showers and not have them realize it *chuckles* that's great!
from amblus :
Ha! The note you left me cracked me up. "Gnaw on our beaks". Ha! Rock on.
from christonabun :
Did you catch Eddie Izzard on Tough Crowd the other night? He was in rare form, as usual, but damn Colin Quinn pisses me off. He was the only Weekend Update anchor I never liked. BTW, I said "following", not "stalking". Stalking has such bad connotations, and I'm sure you don't want to kill me, or anything. Right? I mean, it's not like you could've possibly heard what I said about Zwan...
from sunstarr :
you may not think you have a sense of humour, but i think you do! i read most of your entries and laughed out loud on some of them. i think you're a terrific writer. congrats on grad school!! have a great day!
from whiteytaurus :
ZWAN ROCKS!!!! finally ive found another person that thinks so!i saw them at my areas radio station show, the HFSmas Nutcracker and they were incredible!love yer diary too.
from christonabun :
Just saw The Sweetest Thing last night, and I bought Drop Dead Gorgeous on my way home before the wreck. If you insist on following me, at least say hello!
from christonabun :
Don't worry, it's just spring fever. I understand they have pills for that, so let me know if you find some. Please? I actually... wore cologne... the other day. Stop this sensless whoring out of the Chris!
from comment-anon :
A skirt, eh? It takes a lot to get me to wear one of those. Anyway, banner clicker here. Thought I'd say hello. -Boo
from ga-templates :
Gah! I forgot I was on my stupid template name... and then I hit the back button and it resent my note. Gar I'm suck a f*cktard. Anyway my regular diary is girl-aflame.. which I am going to switch to nooow...
from ga-templates :
Hullo. Just stopping by from your banner about Victor Hugo. Your diary certainly lives up to the banner! You should read Rumblelizard. I'll bet you'd love her... cheers, Michelle
from ga-templates :

from christonabun :
Metriculated... good word. My five year reunion is next month, and I'm gonna go so I can laugh at everyone that used to laugh at me. Cheers!
from christonabun :
Sorry about the bad grammar, and I wasn't trying to come off as weird, I was just REALLY drunk when I wrote you that other note. Anyway, how's it feel to have graduated? I'm sure I'll be terrified (I have two years to go yet) but maybe you can work something out of it! But, alas and anon, I must be off. p.s. This author I'm really into, Sarah Vowell, highly recommends David Sedaris. I guess I'll be checking him out.
from christonabun :
It seems we're in the same boat. I'm a 22 year old that has no idea what to do with his life. However - the only reason I messaged you was your interests. Not only do you know who Edward Gorey is, but you like Yoko Kanno! Holy shit! Are you familiar with Macross Plus? If not, I'd be glad to send you some music from it, I think it's her best. If you end up checking out my diary, please realize that it's actually my second one, so by reading it you probably don't know alot about me. The first was written during a sensitive time in my life, and has since been erased. I hope to correct this error soon, but I stil don't know that I want everyone to know every little thing about me. You, howevwer, will be among the priviledged few, because of your interests. Anyway, please let me know how you are, and maybe I'll talk to you later?
