from dangerspouse :
Well, it's been a few months now. How's that love thing working out for ya?
from lunablossom :
That set is gorgeous! I love it. Just for the record, they work better... fit better when someone buys them for you. Come on down to Las Cruces and I'll gift you a set. My advise, listen to yourself. Something about that dream: the vividness, the time it occurred means its more than just a dream... let me know what you decide.
from non-descript :
how private will private be? solo-private or other?
from zuzus-petals :
LOVE the pic!! I just got back from DC tonight... I'll peruse your flckr tomorrow. if you go private, send me password info??? hi, hi, hi! - Zu
from somstar :
Hale scares me, being from Florida and all I usually relate hale to tornadoes :(
from marn :
Sorry it took me so long to mention your project. I think it's an incredible idea and I hope that you get a bazillion replies.
from somstar :
My aunt got into the geneology stuff too and apparently I am so how (very distantly) related to Elvis. lol Thanks for the welcome back :) PS I tried using your "comments" feature and it told me I couldn't because you're not "Super Gold"
from floodtide :
When do you want stuff by?
from x-centricity :
That's who you got your strength, and your tremendous ability to love from. *huggles*
from marn :
What a great story! You come from great stock, eh?
from non-descript :
How can I not be thrilled and overwhelmed by such an offer and not eagerly accept, providing the offer still stands? It has been weeks since I've been on Diaryland and now, at 5:30 when I'm waiting for my taxi to arrive so I can leave Manhattan, I'm stunned immobile and yet my thoughts race. Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you SURE? And as I ponder, I say "Self, shut up. Accept and be gracious, get that painting into your hands before Madrigle changes his mind" so yes, I am eager, I want it. Is it too forward or presumptive to discuss details in private? Let us talk soon. I do not squeal but I am - I am thrilled. THRILLED.
from bothhandz :
i think i get what you were saying about your writing the other day. and um, i still dig the freeform...it's nice to take a look at your brain ; )
from princess03 :
first password is: beautiful second line is: lies enjoy. :]
from zuzus-petals :
It's totally beautiful!!! - Zu
from non-descript :
Have you heard? Anne Rice announced there's one last vampire book coming, the last-no-more-ever-story about Lestat. Jason PS - Where's my no-mayo chicken salad recipe? Hmm? HMMM?
from bothhandz :
you are so gay...and i love every second of it! and damn the survey for not posting!!!!!
from bothhandz :
um, i think these are disabled but i'm trying again. i need to watch some stuff before the 6th! so far behind...
from zuzus-petals :
Firstly, I think you gotta delete the missive from not-green-eyed-man and give him a big psychic bitch slap for one. You can be enthralled, but don't go into the light! Secondly, do you watch Angel? Thirdly, I'm actually going to try to update my blog today, but YES, I am ubermom. I went into labor on New Years eve and she was born 19 hours later... New Years Day in the evening. And it wasn't 17 hours of "early labor" followed by two hours of "real" labor... it was full on 19 hours of ACTIVE back labor... I tried to go unmedicated (that lasted about 10 hours) and then I just gave up.. bring on the epidural... but lucky me, it wore off in the proverbial 11th hour (which was the 18th hour) and the anesthesiologist was in a C-section.. much fun was had by all. She is perfect, beautiful and the most amazing baby.. er... if I do say so myself. - Zuzu
from non-descript :
can you concoct a no-mayonnaise chicken salad? Or one not so mayo-e? I can't stand mayonnaise but chicken salad always looks so good... and tastes absolutely nasty when it's covered in that white goop people seem to like so much...
from flying-kiwi :
You ought to just move down here really. Your family will visit because they can be on holiday and your creative utopia is called Nelson. :o) I hope it's just the winter blues, at least you know they'll pass.
from bebelua :
this is not the first time, and i'm sure it will not be the last: i read you today and really just wished we lived closer.
from zuzus-petals :
I'm glad you didn't crash your car re: the beautiful boy... I'd hate for any peril to come to those hands.. how would you paint, afterall!!? - ZuMe
from zuzus-petals :
TOTALLY weird. I think you should call the restaurant and let them know what happened. I'm glad you're okay now. - Zu
from floodtide :
I had a lovely stone - good size, not too expensive, gave bread terrific crusts. It cracked down the middle, end-to-end, damn. Just haven't gotten 'round to replacing it yet. A peel, though: never had a peel, need to get one. Of course, I also need a 7 1/4-qt Le Creuset Dutch Oven, but I don't have (or at least cant' justify) an extra $229.99 right now. *sigh*
from floodtide :
For some reason I can't sign into Yahoo messenger; I was hoping to come online and chat with you there regarding your note about my "selfisher" comment. I was joking, of course; I don't think people should be selfish, but the thought had occurred to me. Einstein said, (or so I've been told) that "things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." It came to me when I was realizing how nice it was to have a small occasion on which I could be selfish, just taking care of me for a moment. Love, gwm
from boann7 :
hugs
from zuzus-petals :
I'd take a picture of the brass button. - Zu
from floodtide :
Hey, sweetie. Tried to leave a comment on your fabulous entry about the young Nigerian writer, but the site wouldn't let me. So here's what I wrote: "Beautiful entry from a beautiful, generous, amazing man. Hugs, kisses, and so much love, gwm"
from floodtide :
Thanks for your notes. My sisters are here and we're having a huge horrible family discussion that I knew was coming but didn't know they were expecting me to confront my parents with all this shit on this particular holiday visit. Trouble in paradise, oy veh. I have come to terms with our upbringing in ways my sisters haven't, and they want me to help drag it all up. Ouch. Hugs and kisses, gwm aka flood
from flying-kiwi :
I think we'd get along quite well drunk. Going by your recent entry, we could very well be drunk-soulmates. Except the music may be different. :o)
from zuzus-petals :
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh... pick me, pick me, for hours of fun! GO here and play!: http://www.jacksonpollock.org/
from zuzus-petals :
Happy coming out day.. er.. belated... YAY YOU! What liberty. - Zu
from x-centricity :
I am so jealous!! *grin*
from floodtide :
Regarding Anne Rice writing you back: THAT is SO COOL!!!!!
from non-descript :
The Witching Hour - also my favorite Anne Rice text. Wanna hear a little gay secret? Long, long, LONG before I would have admitted any sort of attraction to men, much less acted on it, I read and re-read the description of Michael suntanning on the deck, that passage that describes him with his flaccid cock and little cross nestled in his chest hair. Even now I swoon. I think we should meet for coffee or tea the next time I'm in Albuquerque - there's so much we could talk about!
from marn :
Kudos. When you become a big time L.A. artist, I hope you'll remember us little folk, eh?
from zuzus-petals :
Brilliant!!!! - your adoring fan Zuzu
from zuzus-petals :
wow... what a poop! - Zu
from non-descript :
well damn. I hope you considered leaving him in Mexico and driving home alone, but didn't because it was his car. I'm right, aren't I?
from marn :
I can feel the giddy from here. It's intoxicating :)
from boann7 :
kisses and hugs
from boann7 :
i have been away too long.. congrats on your showing there.. i am so excited for you. i looked at all your work.. its fucking amazing brilliant stuff.!!!
from zuzus-petals :
I've been busy, being pregnant and slowly moving my blog go blogspot! - Zu
from non-descript :
For several years now I have enjoyed the glimpses of your life and artwork that you've shared online. Today I followed the link (well, not quite - the link didn't work but I figured it out) to the gallery and - I hope the following comment doesn't come across as paternalistic or assumptive - but I am so profoundly proud of you. I am not one for exaggeration or embellishment but your pieces made me catch my breath in surprise. You have become what you set out to be all those years ago, James, and I am honored and proud to have witnessed the fruition of your ambition and hard work. Your success is a beacon far more than you realize.
from zuzus-petals :
I can't get that link to work... - Zu (I miss you.)
from marn :
High praise indeed coming from another gardener. Bless you, J. We gardeners have such a desperate need to *grow* things, eh? When I had just a squinky little apartment in Ottawa during my student days I had a bazillion containers out on the balcony a-growin' things for me. And now here you are doing the same thing. It's primal, I'm thinking. The spousal unit isn't a big fan of Thai :(. I've been exploring Indian cooking blogs so I get the heat I love and he gets flavours he likes. Stumbled into http://www.hookedonheat.com and have been wending my way through her links. Paul and I are heading into Montreal next Friday to score Indian spices I can't get here. I'm stupidly excited. I wish we lived closer. I would love to pick your brain on so many things! xxxooo Marn

from non-descript :
Motherfucker guestbook wouldn't let me add a comment. Saying for the second time how much I enjoy your writing takes little away from the original impulse. I'm off to do some painting of my own - the office walls in sunburst blue, trim in orchid white, lit from above by a brand new skylight and from the two sides by new floor-to-celing windows. Color is good, yes, very very good. Wish you'd visit and paint me an underwater scene of undulating greens and blues!
from floodtide :
I made my first PERFECT ciabbata today! Thought immediately of you. Love you. gwm
from floodtide :
Hey, honey - I will send you my address; I want a postcard! And if Jason has set up: he said he'd include me but I haven't heard from him. Would you please ask him to e-mail me? Thanks and love, floodtide
from flying-kiwi :
Alright mister. 17 days is QUITE long enough between entries. WHERE are you!? xox
from whystinger :
The duck soup recipe is real and supposed to be really good. While I have eaten blood tongue and some german blood sausage, I didn't have the balls to eat the "chocolate soup" when my Grandma was alive. Today, I would probably try it at least. Your costume would have went well with my grim reaper. Too bad I didn't wear it this halloween...
from boann7 :
isn't it wonderful...!!! i think i am in heaven when im out there. =)
from x-plicity :
*grin*
from boann7 :
thanks dear =)
from spazs :
It´s as if you´re letting me have access to your sexual parts! I mean this is great!
from spazs :
With never telling me where you´re coming from and what you´re meaning and so on.
from spazs :
You´re just driving me nuts!! (this is le-fart). I can´t see who you are, like, what you DO. I mean in a social sense. Community sense. I mean, I would understand your ways if you were a woman and I a man and you would say I was interested in your sexually and would punish me for that. I had that already. Girls claiming I like their ass and then punishing me for it, exposing me, etc etc. You know? But you are not a girl, not claiming I like you and not pushing me away either. Like, I don´t understand your rules of...anything. I don´t understand you!!!!!!! I wanna know you!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, or not, if you wouldn´t want it. But hear that you´re driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!
from boann7 :
me too dear... one day ill come down and beg you to cook for me. =)
from floodtide :
Everytime I start to think I'm becoming "accomplished" (or something like it) as an amateur chef, I read one of your menus and know instantly that I am bush league at best! I would kill to be at your table. Hugs and kisses, ft
from floodtide :
Looking GOOD, baby!
from non-descript :
Again, thank you for kind words. I am not writing elsewhere - I am not writing at all. Were I, you would know. Occasionally I think of writing, but the words remain immobile and I've given up trying. The past few months have been difficult and bleak, though I see a slow return to normal accelerating daily. Your recent adventures sound wonderful and you deserve each palpitation of excitement and pleasure, James. Interesting you should mention Anne - I just re-read the series not even a week ago, the first time since I was a child. Be good, be blessed, be happy.
from after- :
*the more you know* lol
from floodtide :
Hello, sweet friend. Ouch, ouch, ouch; I am hurting for you. Your description of coming across his diary and not seeing yourself: hit very close to home, filled me with empathy. I am wrapping my arms around you from afar, with love.
from wearethebody :
Hey there, i just wrote an entry the other day, and if you could give me some insight from a guy's perspective (i'll tell you more about it if you want to know) i would really love it, this guy is driving me crazy! Hope to talk to you later.
from hbaybee :
Lookin for a diary review? Don't be silly, of course you are! Come to Hitlar Baybee Reviewz for the best review this side of the time-space continuum =D x
from zuzus-petals :
i love the cartoon paper she wrote the note on... that's what carries it from trashy to art! - Zu
from boann7 :
=D thanks. oh and happy birthday darling.
from floodtide :
1: Late happy birthday wishes. So sorry I can't be there in person to spank the birthday boy. 2. Your O'Keefe entry had me tingling - to see her brushes! You made it so vivid, I felt I was there, too. 3. "I like cock" had me about wetting my pants. I noticed the PHOTO first, then saw the heading, and lost it. Much love, ft
from non-descript :
Hi, James. I am still around. Just went dormant for a bit, but am waking up again.
from aliannmil :
Hi, you don't know me but I've been enjoying your diary (and your spectacular art) for a while now. I am forced to reveal myself in order to play by the rules of the game. You are thusly tagged, read my diary for info.
from lotus29 :
OMG! Imagine my surprise when I saw a "you have a new note" message in my Inbox! How the heck are ya! I've been a terrible friend when it comes to keeping you and Corazon up-to-date. I keep telling myself that I have to e-mail Corazon to let her in on my latest, but I will tell you both now that I finally got a job!!! I am an office assitant at a non-profit botanical garden in my area. It's a really cool place and I'll e-mail the details to Corazon. The web site is www.goodellgardens.org(which has a horrible design and has nothing to do with me - but I will be changing it in the future). Hugs and kisses and thanks for being forgiving of my procrastinating ways. Love ya both! Lotus P.S. Maybe I'll even start writing again in the ol' diary.
from floodtide :
Oh my GOD gorgeous photos - thank you for sharing, beautiful man. Love, flood
from boann7 :
no i didn't get to play in the studio yet. that man is still working on completing it still. i just had such a yearning so i spread it all out on the dinning room table pastels and watercolors.. im making a big mess .. but i don't care.. =)
from x-plicity :
Miss you!!
from zuzus-petals :
Was the tick attached? I find ticks on Secret Agent Dog all the time, near daily, but not attached. The tick collar keeps them from attaching - they just crawl around with their nasty selves. As long as the rains persist, she'll pick up ticks in the brush on the mountain. Some areas are worse then others.. when we go to a place called Elliot it's invariable that I'll pull off at least 20 ticks.. sometimes upwards of 50! I seem to get them, however, I don't find them around the house. Just drop them right into vegetable oil (olive oil works equally well) and the die within seconds. You call also rub vegetable oil on them, if they're attached, and often times it makes them back out. Or if you just just rub them vigorously while they're attached, they back out and pop off - I guess they don't like the friction - it avoids having to pull them out with a tweaser, leaving part of their head behind, etc. The flea problem persists. I use Advantage on the Honey Bee (similar to biospot - I checked it out at the store weekend before last.. we have it here too.) I bought some Zodiac flea spray, but I am only supposed to re-spray no more frequently than 14 days (maybe too often breeds resistant fleas?)
from boann7 :
no, i take that back it was 33 years ago.
from boann7 :
its true.. today is the first contact since that day 27 years ago. i feel so happy to know hes alive somewhere still. =)
from boann7 :
omg.. you are so lucky.. that should be a fantastic show!!!
from floodtide :
Your menu - oh. my. GOD. Orgasmic. I drool. Love from ft
from non-descript :
Re: Being a chef with a menu. I don't know you well enough about most things to feel comfortable proffering an opinion, but on cooking and enjoying victuals, I've always seen your passion. If you had to choose between teaching and cooking, which makes your heart pound most?
from zuzus-petals :
Hey, I really like the design on your "archive" pages - the "older" entries... i think it's the first time I've looked at it. very nice! -= Zu
from somstar :
You always seem like you're on the go and that you're very much a busy body, do you ever take a day off? You should... Either way I can never read enough, I like keeping tabs on where the next great artist is.
from zuzus-petals :
I still have that linger flour/butter roux question. But nevermind that right now. Tell me more about Biospot. I use Advantage on her - which seems to be great at repelling fleas on her and destoying the eggs on her - but I'm not sure it actually "kills" the fleas wherever she goes. Sounds intriguing.. do tell more!
from zuzus-petals :
White ones even.
from zuzus-petals :
Tomorrow I'll post more water lillies, just for you! - Zu
from whystinger :
I'm glad the art is flowing... White can be difficult too. And for the new guy, he has opened the door for more kissing and that is why is said he shouldn't have kissed. You should have shot back with something, maybe "what took us so long" or "let's try it again to see..." I am happy for you and yes, sometimes kissing is just awesome. For me, sometimes the kissing can be even better than doing the nasty
from non-descript :
Re: Getting caught. Must confess to a very strong exhibitionist streak.
from non-descript :
Have you considered hosting your own art show at home? The partner of an acquaintance of mine hosts showings of her art and I understand it's quite successful. An idea. Do keep in mind I know nothing about the art world and the metier of artists. Be good.
from boann7 :
umm yes long hair... i have a crush on a delicious tall man with long red hair who writes poetry and lyrics and music and elloquent letters and reads rilke..we have over a thousand letters between us now.
from boann7 :
happy valentines day ..hugs.. hugs ..hugs
from x-plicity :
Happy V-day! *heart* X
from non-descript :
I concur with your assessment of this (re)developing correspondance. I find myself repeating a push-pull-push-pull interaction that's rather quite wearisome and is undoubtedly successful in communicating to the very people of which I am most fond that I am thoroughly uninterested. It is that pesky fear of disappointment, me suspects. At any rate, you have always been one of my favorite people I've never met. You're in good company. Those maladapted (stunted?) social skills bedevil me but look, I've come so far and the momentum has yet to cease. Next time I swing through Albu I'll send a note and we can have some coffee and Chinese food, eh? I want to see one of your paintings in vivo!
from boann7 :
thanks for the doggy advice, i'll look for that. =)
from non-descript :
Authentic Chinese food in Albu? The I-live-in-the-Bay-Area-with-its-millions-of-Chinese part of me resists the possibility, but I'll allow it given the geographic disadvantage with which you must grapple. When you visit San Francisco, I know EXACTLY where I'm taking you for authentic-authentic-authentic Chinese food, right down to the different menus given to the non-Chinese customers who would be offended by some of the more... authentic dishes. *grin* (My sister's best friend's family owns the restaurant, lives above it, and will watch you eat until they are completely assured you are fully satisfied. Now that's San Francisco Chinese authentic!)
from non-descript :
Four out of the five isn't so bad, even if it did leave me hanging. *grin* As for Dune, I too reread it every year, along with Les Miserables and a couple others. Good taste, James. Be well.
from boann7 :
xxoo thanks you are sweet.
from x-plicity :
Poor kid. You did a great job teach! Next time, just in case, keep some baking soda around. Baking soda is great for acid burns. Don't ask how I know....
from boann7 :
thanks for the hug. you're a dear.
from non-descript :
James, you've GOT to visit SF! I'd love to show you around, especially to the (new) DeYoung, to the Cliff House, to MOMA, to - many many places. I may lack social skills but I'm an outstanding tour guide :-)
from jonathan :
Just for you I'll post some drawings - I've finally got round to scanning them in. Love the paintings and photos! Great to come across someone who has been in Diaryland as long as I have.
from boann7 :
running from fear of loss.. yes that could very well be the undercurrent of the dream. something i had not thought of.. thanks .. ill ponder that a while.
from somstar :
I have those same feelings :)
from x-plicity :
I was lurking in the bushes and thought I would say hello! *hugs* X
from boann7 :
thank you for the sweet note. warm hugs
from neangel :
you're more then welcome. if i could even afford to buy a piece of your work i would in a heart beat!! perhaps we can strike a deal? lol ;-) i can't wait to try the lemon meringue! Hmmm... i just might make that the first baking i do in my new house once i get in.
from floodtide :
Hi, and thank you, sweet boy. I e-mailed you at your diaryland.com e-address, and I included my "real" or "home" e-mail address. Love, flood
from zuzus-petals :
I'm so jealous. I'd LOVE an 8800! /sigh.
from zuzus-petals :
Well, I sent a missive to madrigle at dland dot com with seven attachments. They were sized/shrunk for posting on dland, if you want any one of them larger for any reason, just let me know which and I'll send it on. - Zu
from zuzus-petals :
A few things. Reading the note below.. I misquoted. It's not "through out" it's "through OUR actions and inactions we only have ourselves to blame when our own genocide occurs." Next, I'm happy to send you whatever mushrooms you'd like - that way you can print it if you like and have it to look at if you want to try to paint it. Put your email address in my notes pages - I send digital images of the mushrooms and then delete the note with your email address in it.. How's that? Re: 11/21 - Sometimes I think I'm maudlin, but when I'm writing these things I don't feel maudlin.. I feel like that character in Camus' The Plague trying to find the right words to describe things before I die. But then, you know, that character didn't die.. they thought they'd finally done it but then had their Lazarus moment and it all began again. If it's all going to begin again, I want the next time through to be funnier. - Zu
from zuzus-petals :
My pleasure - I think you will enjoy it. I first learned about it when Larry Kramer (playwrite/The Normal Heart, etc.) referred to it in a really compelling "Last Word" (the last page of the magazine "The Advocate") Another quote that lingers with me - now I can't remember who he attributed it to is "through out own action and inactions we only have ourselves to blame when our own genocide occurs." The piece was brilliant and about taking responsibility and acting in the face of adversity. The Peck book, in addition to attempting to define human evil, spends a good deal of time discussing how we need to take responsibility for these things - how it's not the "U.S. Government" that is committing these atrocities but as Americans, we're culpable and responsible - personally - and I got the sense that he said that unless and until we are able to see our responsibility we can never wholly atone for these evils and change a course. Well, I won't ruin it for you - I hope you read and I hope you like it! - Zuzu
from iam-perfect :
yo, you're welcome :-D
from whystinger :
Maybe you should move to a slightly bigger place and start rooming interns... built in company and also help on the rent... to subsidize your rent
from floodtide :
For what it's worth, I can't help noting something in your IM conversation posted today: it ends with your acquaintance saying "yeah, I was afraid of spiders; you can't let it rule your life." Translation: "If you were as evolved as I am you'd conquer your fear as I have; i.e., I am superior to you." Your anger and diminishing respect are more than justified.
from dietpeppers2 :
I just had to say, you are an excellent painter. I have not seen such beautiful and expressive pieces anywhere in this town I live in. I'm not exaggerating either. You are truely talented.
from theswordsman :
Hi. Try contacting Andrew via e-mail about the comments problem. I know that sounds like horrible advice, but he's actually been fixing things for the past week and a half. I e-mailed him for like the tenth time that the "recently updated" by alphabet list hasn't worked in six months, and he fixed it. Then I said that the clock on the stats tracker was off by half an hour, and he fixed that too. I actually think something happened and he's taking the place seriously again. Cheers. John
from whystinger :
I also took metalsmithing in college... first class was design in metal and wood. made some wooden mallets to use on the metal. Did some lost wax casting and hammer raising. Worked with brass and copper. I wanted to move up to silver, but never got a chance to pursue. Wife does some beaded jewelry, so I may do some small baubles for her necklaces... I am still interested in metalsmithing, but time is a problem. Built a workshop, but that has the old car and motorcycle in it... Be well
from whystinger :
it is funny how teachers don't want to use sick days... my wife hates to use them also and most all teachers I know... Wonder if it is the administration, or is it the personality??? I can't remember what I used to do when I taught auto... probably the same.
from boann7 :
hi, just thought id say.. i love your paintings...and your passion for painting.
from whystinger :
BTW, aren't you into metalsmithing? Have any entries where you wrote about it? I was into some raisings and of course, I like to fabricate and weld steel...
from whystinger :
I think Bondo would work fine... Auto paint today is pretty strong and uuuuummmm, well chemically bad ass, so acrylic should be fine. If you need something finer, they now make a "bondo type spot putty" which you also have to add hardener to, but is cures quickly and also sands well, no shrinkage and all that... Probably have to go to an autobody and Paint store to get it. BTW, bondo is basically fiberglass without the fiberglass, they use some type of filler, but it is polyester resin (if I rememeber correctly) and it should take all kinds of paint well. Bondo is also somewhat porous, so it is not really water proof... but what you are painting is not a car, so you should be okay...
from darkenedhell :
oh wow thats so cool..i've never knew someone else who loves Tales of the City!! sadly i've only read the first book T__T i wish i can find the others!! laters! --KiTTy
from endofdying :
You seem cool. You like pet shop boys, and Shakira. Nice. I have to ask you, is the "ashes ashes..." a reference to just "ring around the rosie" or did you choose it because it was a lyric from the song "Wake" by Leiahdorus. Because that song is the man.

Clicked in because of your banner. Need to read more... Teacher... Metalsmithing... Some of it is very interesting....
from candora :
I hear the greatest performers sometimes experience stage fright, some to extreme degrees... I suppose they focus the nervous energy and perform even better... balance the anxiety with the conceit and find confidence?... sounds like a plan :)
from marinka-mp :
Hello. I have no idea how i got to your site. but i must say your writing is rather interesting. I am more intrigued by the painting. Can i add you as a favorite?
from somstar :
I would leave you another "comment" in that section, but it never remembers my information, bastard. I'm really lazy sometimes so I thought I would leave a note and say hi, to the super fine. Oh and to tell you I'm a super perfectionist too, my bf insist that I'm obsessive compulsive.
from neangel :
i like it okay... i won't leave dland for myspace though...never!! it's just not the same at all.
from neangel :
happy belated! good luck with the moving, i hate moving too and dammit if i won't be moving again while i am in texas before moving back to CA.
from flying-kiwi :
Belated Happy Birthday for Sunday!

Thanks for the note. I'm sorry to read about your grandfather. People will tell you that time heals everything, but it doesn't, you have to do that yourself. Hang in there. Hugs.
from neangel :
while i am sorry for your loss it does sound like he is much better off now. i would hate to see someone i love so much suffer. *hugs*
from non-descript :
Just go, Madrigle, go and don't look back - it's like you're riding a wave heading towards your very own Eden. Hmm. Perhaps not the most apropos image given the tsunami? Regardless, Godspeed in everything.

Love love love all your paintings & pictures! Man w/ those & your cook book you could so replace marth stewart in a whole new & better way!
from ladyvivien :
*hugs* sickness is notfun. only just recovering from the Flu From Hell extravaganza...
from corazon :
So, I'm switching to your notes because I feel like it, so there. I'm thinking that these jobs that are supposed to be so freaking rewarding because you are helping people, but getting paid smack are completely bogus. I think I would rather make mucho and help my family. Baahhhh!!! I don't know. I hope you are having a better day. Why does a garden person need marshmallows? They won't grow if you plant them, I promise. Love you, C.
from rainbowguppy :
Hey, nice layout in your diary. I like the fast paced, tongue-in-cheek sort of way you write...or something, I have no idea what I'm on about but anyway. I read that entry about your boyfriend hiding you from everything, cheer up. I'm sure he's just worried and having irrational fears about homophobia or something. Deb
from ladyvivien :
that sounds awkward...how can he not have at least a vague cover story prepared if he doesn't want to be open about it?
from dont-stop :
Hmmm, I wonder if that works for legs and armpits. I'll have to try that.
from zuzus-petals :
I just read your post on forgiveness... a topic that I have an almost morbid fascination with... but mostly I think if you can't fully define it, you can't do it.

Thanks for the note; yes, the face is me. :) I was scanned! The button links come from pieces of Starry Night. Yay! :D
from waterpins :
hi- my other username, ohrachel, was accepted to the futureauthor diaryring. just wanted to let you know that i've stopped using that username. thank you for accepting me.

You are so right about Buffy...Did you catch Alyson Hannigan on Jay Leno last night?? She will be on Carson Dalys Last Call this thursday aug. 8th I believe...im excited..she is my favorite person from the show. I miss that show...oh well atleast there is FX and Fox still...
from banefulvenus :

from corazon :
You are right about the beauty of your bird, but that picture looks a little like you are feeding a really pretty bird to the cutest, softest, most cuddly dog on the planet. Oh, the cowboy. We had a very sexy discussion last night. I may very well be in over my head, but maybe it's better that way. Love you, C.
from marn :
You know, this is far from a done deal. My country is about evenly split on gay and lesbian marriage, so it's critically important to get the vote out on this one, to rattle the politician's cages. If they aren't sure there's lots of support for it, it won't pass. Man, this one is a nail biter, eh?
from excentrique :
Aww cute bird! I'm sorry i didn't even see your message about the job entry til today. It's really hard, and we've been snapping at each other alot lately. He says he has no sympathy for people who quit their jobs. Oh well, all i can do is wait and keep putting in the apps. ttyl- Monica
from marn :
Oh, man, those pink poppies sound so incredibly tasty! I have a lovely, lacy orange-red double that I've been trying to propagate forever into my daffodil meadow (and well, you know how successful I've been with that, eh?) *Sigh*. Limegreenman left a note that poppies like turned soil, so I'm thinking I may save some of this year's seed and in addition to trying the root divisions, maybe throw some poppy seed in when I till the buckwheat under. It can't hurt, right? Last year I saw a stunning true crimson (not orange-red) oriental poppy in a garden tour and now I'm on the hunt for it. Oh, and I would GLADLY give an organ for a blue Tibetan poppy, but so far have had zero luck in finding them :( I saw them in the Botanical Garden in Montreal and they are the most incredibly colour. Aye yi yi! It's so much fun having a gardener to talk with :) Thanks, Madrigle :)
from ladyvivien :
I don't know..maybe he has a *really* interesting sex life ;) Come on mind, get out of the gutter....
from marn :
Thanks so much for letting me know that it's interval training and that the pain is worth it for the gain. I know I read about it on some running site, but the site only said: Ya Do It This Way, Knucklehead and didn't explain the benefits. Oh, and can I just say that it's a cruel, cruel thing to taunt me with the possibility of Madrigal's Kitchen without actually posting recipes! I still use your Thai red curry sauce tip you left eons ago in my old guestbook :) For the cuisine-challenged such as myself (a woman who loves to eat but knows not how to cook) people such as you are lifesavers, eh?
from marn :
BAKED CHEESY POUFS! Good Lord, this is wonderful news. All the joy, much less guilt :) Sugaring is actually not going well--spring is coming much, much too fast this year. *Sigh*. Hope all is well with you--I think of you every time I make your red Thai curry sauce :)
from ladyvivien :
*grins*. kudos to you, mr. science! Apparently several high schools are storming Edinburgh castle in protest against the war as we speak...
from bothhandz :
so i finally wrote something on here.....i think it is only my disgust with the "war on terror" that has led me to write something...i figured sending a rambling email to any of my friends was not the way to deal with the anxiety that the speech last night caused. anyway, hello to you and i hope you are doing well...this is buffy if you haven't figured it out.....

I clicked on your banner!
from katehackett :
Killer diary, luv! I really love the writing style and your methods of weaving humour and emotional intricities are great.
from ladyvivien :
Peanut butter is much nicer than mice.
from jonathan29 :
Where is Erasure playing here in Houston?
from sooner :
you need a french press. It's how I've been brewing lately. One small warning though. No paper filter=high colesterol coffee. I don't know why this is so, but all the articles tell me it is.
from peth :
I like the door knockers shaped like hands.
from peth :
MOONDOG!
from sooner :
I'm so sorry about your grandma.
from ladyvivien :
Work is irrelevant, diay entries good! La Dame du Lac xxx
from corazon :
Our guestbooks are down for some reason, so I am leaving you a note in here. I think all your edumacational mumbojumbo is really about ENCOURAGEMENT versus praise. Encouragement is specific and geared toward getting the child to not be dependent on praise. It means saying things like "Wow, you have been working hard at trying to understand that theory and I think you've got it!" or "You really seem to like it when we do experiments in class." Okay, so it ain't all purty and intellectual and all, but it's something you could do with every kid (and probably do) even if they haven't got the hang of critical thinking. I love you. C.
from ladyvivien :
Still yummy, I see. Been on an enforced break from reading this whilst stuck in an internet-free field in the South of England, but I'm back, baby. Oh merciful Zeus, Austin Powers took over again.
from sooner :
Had I been there, I would have ghost written an entry for you, because I'm like that. Next time have me over.
from peth :
i desperately want a massage, but I cannot do the nekkid thing. cannot!
from sooner :
it's delicious. And ever changing. Do you have any gum?
from roxymarie02 :
you seem pretty interesting I enjoyed your diary
from corazon :
Oooh, benefactors are a great idea.We are getting down to the wire my dear. I could count the time in hours. I won't because I haven't had coffee yet and I would mess it up as I still struggle to understand the puzzle in Sooner's guestbook. I hereby resolve to give up counting forever. Love you, C.
from corazon :
I need wide open spaces, room to make a big mistake. I need new faces or places (I cannot remember) . . .oh fergit it. I cain't rmember the dern werds.
from corazon :
I do indeed enjoy the Dixie Chicks.
from corazon :
I cannot wait for the Hills to be alive and the song about the pure white flower and flitting and flying. I cannot wait. Um, by the way, I am not sure that you realize that you um, well, that little passive aggressive lie you told---well, you wrote in you entry about the truth and that person might figure the truth out. Just thought I would alert you to that. Love you.
from honeycube :
heyyyyy im in the future authors ring but i'll be changing my link to lexabug. i'll transfer all my old files + rings tho- just thought you'd like to know =)
from corazon :
My sweet friend, I'm not sure how things happen between good friends. I guess tides just turn in lives and not always in compatible ways. I guess that the happy thought in that is that since the tide is always changing, it can turn back to something compatible and your coworkers may find their ways back to friendship. We've both seen stranger things happen, no? I love you, C.
from corazon :
So, the message I am getting from the note you left me is that you are perhaps a bit perturbed with me about my encouraging sooner to try to gross you out with worm/penis talk. I won't apologize because it would not be sincere and I don't deal well with dishonesty. So, instead I will insert some evil and maniacal laughter here. Mwa haa haa haa haa ha. Love you, C.
from corazon :
Hmmm. . . you get kind of scary and kinky notes in here. Anyway, I am so excited about The Sound Of Music. Who will I be? I want to be Liesle (sp?). Can I pull it off? Could I be 16 going on 17? I don't know. I also can't wait for the meat and cheese fest. Oooh, we need to be making some green curry or druken noodles or something Thai. I am just a dither with anticipation. Love you.
from peth :
i will gladly administer my lash upon you, naughty man, while force-feeding you circus peanuts and singing songs from 'Cabaret'. Take digipics of the snickerdoodles, too.

from everchanging :
ah.. your notes are covered with STDs... ::types carefully and sterilizes afterwards:: hehe.. I started writing again! So change your favorites info on me.. ^_^ and change it to something that will make me go "SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" with joy and blushes and stuff...
from peth :
Our Chzza is possibly naming his new kitten 'Chlamydia', so why not name your daughter Viagra Dementia, and she can be VD for short. I like it. And I like that I am mirthful. Thank you!
from corazon :
I love spandex. I have many pairs of stretchy slacks. Stretch is good.
from corazon :
Okay, I will stop teasing you about Virga. You could give her a boring middle name to go by like Deanna except then her initials would be VD and that would be no good. Did you get my itinerary? Love you.
from corazon :
Sweetie, I'm sorry it has taken me awhile to respond to your note. I'm not always sure what to say. You have grown so much in the time I have known you. One thing that sometimes helps me is some Barbara De Angelis wisdom. You never truly give love away. You can show love to other people (and, baby, you do), but that love is not something anyone can take away from you. It was yours then and it's yours now. I know that you will find a wise and secure soul who will want to share that with you always. I love you and cannot wait to spend a lovely week with you.
from corazon :
I wish I knew what was wrong. I am sorry that I missed your calls on Sunday. I hope you are okay. I suspect this might have something to do with a boy. If so, please remember that boys are often very stupid. Also, remember that I love you very much. C.
from peth :
I could not find the ingredients to make your "endorphin rush" recipe at my local grocer. And while I am not fond of Erasure's music, I do like that fellow's falsetto...he sometimes sounds like Alison Moyet.....
from peth :
You are brilliant! That asparagus-tip freezing is a great idea!
from corazon :
I'm thinking that I should get to try some of your potion when I come to visit you. Air travel does tend to parch the skin. Love you.
from corazon :
Hi. I thought you needed a note in here and it might as well be from me because I know you and love you and miss you and can't wait to visit you and squeeze you and tickle you and hear the Elmo laughter peel forth. How's that for run on?
