from beagle47 :
:) glad all is well! i swear, i never check this anymore...
from yaketyyak :
Grief is not an indulgence. I am so sorry for your pain.
from raven72d :
Shirley Bassey-- wonderful.
from secret-motel :
Mare, you are so fucking rad! A letter is flying north soon.
from smashthegas :
Those kind of pubs are the best kind of pubs ever. We have a few here in scouseland, too ;-) Smashx
from raven72d :
I think I shall be adding you as a favourite read. I do love your stories. And of course you're invited to read along with my own entries...
from raven72d :
Wonderful stories... Whatever became of Joaquin?
from raven72d :
I just came across you--- lovely entries, lovely voice. I do hope to read more.
from kointuition :
New here and stumbled upon you. Really enjoyed reading about your journey.
from shevdevil :
Fantastic! Really! Congratulations! 9.8 shall from now on be your lucky number ;-) 9.8 is amazing darling! hugs and kisses and a "way to go"
from theturtle :
Do it, and do it now. Seriously.
from mainsqueeze :
Hi, Mare. Last year on October 26 I lost somebody very close to me. For what it's worth, I am afraid of <i>that</i> Wednesday, which will be the 25th. I mean, I understand. I know it hurts for me and nothing anybody says can make it better but after six months I only cried two or three times a week and now maybe once a week or so, not because it hurts less but because I'm getting used to the hurt, mostly. Anyway, I wanted to say hi and I get it and I hope that tomorrow, you can remember something really great that you and Frankie did together and it will make you happy to think about him.
from mehiel :
*hugs* I can't promise that it will get better, but I have a feeling that it will. But it's like magic. It'll happen when you're not looking.
from minstrelite :
My Mom had a similar background--her parents were Italian immigrant farmers. She learned English quickly in school and put Italian on the backburner. However, when we moved to Italy many years later (when I was in 8th grade) it was remarkable how quickly she picked up Italian again. We were all amazed.
from pischina :
Hmm, yes, you make me proud. I wanted to take italian in college very badly (I too am italian) but in this area of the country there are more spanish speakers. To get my masters I must pass a fluency test, so I needed to choose a language where I could get the most help. BOO! I am really happy for you though!
from janetplnetoc :
Sometimes breaking things does make you feel better... even if only for a moment. I don't know if insomnia is an adult version of a tantrum, but I get it all the time to and it pisses the hell out of me and makes me WANT to throw a tantrum. A few weeks ago, I got 7 hours of sleep the whole damn week. Fuck that shit. You just want to go out and do bad things when you can't fall asleep. Grieving sucks, I'm sorry you have to go through it.
from mehiel :
I just want you to know that this entry resonated with me. (Especially that rant about Carrie...I get so tired of her maunderings, which now pass for profound thought on network tv.) If you ever want someone to talk to, I'm in town. And I'm sure that you look cute.
from mehiel :
*hugs* I wish there was something I could say that would help you feel better... In any case, I don't think I gave you my new information. The username is "mata," the password is "hari."
from camera-girl :
Every time I click on your banner an read an entry, I'm amazed of how you write. You write so beautifully. I'm speachless every time! The way you use time and days in your entry is amazing.
from la-the-sage :
You started me thinking. Thanks. Blowing kisses north, ~LA
from marn :
Mare, I know what you mean. It's an incredible experience when a big whack of family comes together for a joyous occasion. I'm jealous of you--at my age now, we only tend to get together for the sad things, the funerals. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. I would love your soup recipe any time you have a moment. Once fall comes and my wood cookstove is on, I constantly simmer soup on it. One of my favourite cold weather meals.
from mehiel :
No idea. It was only three years ago I met my husband, and I can't believe how much my life has changed, in that time. But the important thing is to move in the direction of luck, to perpetuate happy trends.

from camera-girl :
Clicked on your banner and here I am. The entry about time was great. I loved it. :-) Time is a funny thing. It reminds me of a poem I read years ago. Difficult to translate it from norwegian into english... sorry.
from la-the-sage :
In 40 days the next thing begins. Sounds trite, I know. True nonetheless. Good to hear from you! ~LA
from sadistiksoul :
i quite enjoyed the entry on your birthday.
from mehiel :
Wow, what a great entry! I've always noticed that in the Cup, people root for their ancestry, rather than their nationality. (I should be rooting for Ireland or England, then, as I doubt I'll ever root for the US--at least not the men's team.)
from biensoul :
Happy Belated Birthday, my love! I hope it was a lovely day; have a wonderful time over the weekend. You deserve it!
from mehiel :
Happy birthday! I can completely understand your desire to smoke after your brother's death. I think it makes perfect sense. But you're right to quit, and I'm glad that you have.
from la-the-sage :
What a lovely birthday present to yourself. Quitting is a fine idea. Happy Birthday, Sweet Mare. ~LA
from mehiel :
I'm so sorry. *hugs* I wish I could understand, but I'm an only child. There was never anyone there to begin with. But I can understand that this is hurting you, and I wish that you felt better.
from mehiel :
Damn right.
from lisajordan :
I'm so sorry you're still hurting so bad. I wish I could take it away. Hugs!
from cyanophyta :
[note]
from mehiel :
I don't think it's navel-gazing. You're being real about your grief. Don't apologize for having feelings. You're meant to have them.
from la-the-sage :
Necessary navel gazing. ~LA

Ohmygod! It's 'That Girl'!!! If you are too young for this reference please consult Wikipedia or Google. Much love, Elderly LA
from mehiel :
Somehow, I'm sad that you don't have three cats and a vibrator. Three cats and a vibrator is a basic human right!
from mehiel :
You'll have fun. :) Hey, I was going to ask you if you knew of any Toronto-area writers' workshops. I can't work or study until my immigration comes through, so student-only organizations are out, but if you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them.
from la-the-sage :
EEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! You're here and I can't get to you! Fuckety fuck fuck. Hope my town did you right. ~LA
from mehiel :
Oh, that sounds wonderful! I'm so glad you had a good time. And even if your world does turn upside down (which I doubt will happen) you at least experienced a bit of beauty before the tumble.
from la-the-sage :
Gosh, I forgotten about Oasis. Their latest is good, you say? Thanks, I'll check it out. Mwah! ~LA
from mehiel :
I've had the same problem, actually. The pain was so bad, and so constant, that I was in constant fear that I had a kidney infection. I went to two different doctors, before realizing it was "just my back." There are two cures for this issue, I found: 1) sleeping on one's side with a pillow between the legs OR on the stomach with a pillow under the pelvis, and 2) Pilates. Really. Those moves do wonders. Good luck.

I just thought I'd let you know that I'm planning on adding you as a favorite. If you're curious, my username and password are: reader.
from serenaville :
I wish I had words that didn't sound trite. Not that any words were asked for. I'll simply leave hugs, the fervent hope your sorrow and pain will surcease, and the prayer you will one day know peace of mind and spirit again. *HUGS*
from la-the-sage :
I'm sorry, I try not to contradict someone's self view, but my God! Do you have ANY idea of how cosmopolitan you are? How ferociously funny? How much of a relief it is to be with you, knowing that you have so much of your own cool that I will never have to scale myself back in order to spare you the agonies of your own lack of inner faith? I spend 362 days a year with a tight rein on my attitude, accessories, vocabulary, and 'me-ness'. For 3 lousy days a year I get to hang with you and a few others who are so fucking wonderful it makes me weep with joy. So don't even go there, Mare. You are the epicenter of fab. ~LA
from wistful-blue :
*Emerges from the lurker's closet* Hello! Sometimes a girl just NEEDS to buy that new pair of shoes/the gorgeous dress that was *made for her*/the ridiculously overpriced Balenciaga handbag. (Guess which one perked yours truly up?)
from la-the-sage :
You know, I've fallen for shoes in a big way over the last decade. This after years of being in the size 12 ghetto and horrified by my huge feet. But my last frontier is two-tone shoes. When spring comes I shall go in search of some Easter spectator pumps and I will be brave and bold and chic because of you and your wonderful example. ~LA
from la-the-sage :
I hope this new year brings you some heart's peace. I'm moved to share a ritual with you. I'm not a one to push my witchy ways on people, but for you this seems right. Sometime tonight or tomorrow sweep your house. Top to bottom, back to front. Chase everything out the front door. Take your doormat, if you have one, and go to the far edge of your property and shake it good. When you put it back, place it upside down. This will help against trouble walking back in through your door. If you don't have a doormat, take all the sweepings in a dustpan and scatter them to the wind. Then buy a doormat. When you get it home tell you it only friends are welcome and put it on the doorstep. Obviously you're sweeping out more than dirt and dust kitties, while you work picture all the broken things, all the crooked sour feelings going out in front of the broom. If my prescription seems like silly crap, that's fine. Not offense taken and I hope none given by my suggestion. It just felt right to offer. Onward into 2006, ~LA
from la-the-sage :
A Merry Christmas to you too, sweetheart. Have your regrets and memories, and be sad as they come, but I think you are brave and loving to let some Christmas spirit come in where it can. Offering a comic gingerbread man and a hug, ~LA
from secret-motel :
"Public response to the children was often hot and never tepid. In general, listeners were divided into two, curiously restive camps: those who held that the Glasses were a bunch of insufferable 'supperior' little bastards that should have been drowned or gassed at birth, and those who held that they were bona-fide underage wits and savants, of an uncommon, if unenviable, order."
from secret-motel :
Nothing silly about reading Franny and Zooey twice in two days. In fact, dear Mare, I think a third reading may be in order. I often take my copy down and re-read passages for no apparent reason. It's as good as drinking and produces a similar state of intoxication minus the dizziness and subsequent regrets.
from la-the-sage :
Sorry, didn't mean to be enigmatic. Ahhh...as in "Yes! Sounds wonderful!" So ahhhhh... for wearing red high heels. For staying out all night. For negotiating a raise and not losing your nerve. ~LA
from la-the-sage :
Ahhhhhhh....~LA
from la-the-sage :
Ugh. Sorry your holiday included the flu. Being sick and sad is horrible enough, doing it in a foreign country...blech. Your heart will be a long while mending, but here's hoping your body cooperates quickly. ~LA
from la-the-sage :
Question, but go anyway. You didn't 'pay' for the goodies with your sorrow. Nor is this wonderfulness a bribe from the universe in an attempt to distract you so it can suckerpunch you again. The timing is fortuitous, though. Go. Go to London. Wear fabulous clothes. Eat bad food. See priceless art. Cry when you need to. And do me a favor? Hoist one for LA who's never been anywhere and odds are will never see London for herself. Thanks, doll. ~LA
from literatewit :
Mare, I also grieve. Your entries about your brother touch my heart. I've had more time than you to try to cope with my loss. I found a great book called "Unattended Sorrow" by Stephen Levine... it was so hard to read, but it has helped a great deal over the past year.
from serenaville :
Jesus, Mare. I cannot possibly imagine. Thank you. Thank you so much for telling about the night your Frankie died, and all that led up to it. Your vivid account was so compelling, I sit here a bawling mess, as though I knew him personally. I hope you will continue to write whatever you want and need to write, during this challenging time. I'm sure many of your readers would agree, we're not just here for the frivol. This entry will stay with me for some time, and I intend to favourite it so I will never forget it... or Frankie. Heartfelt *HUGS* to you.
from la-the-sage :
Thank you. I know we can't take away your pain and grief, but by sharing Frankie's story with us I hope you're able to stand up a little easier because we heard you and are standing by your side. ~LA
from joiedv :
My heart is breaking for you. What a beautiful, passionate and vivid picture you painted of Frankie and your last hours with him. He lives on, just not in the flesh. He lives on here, and in all your hearts. And he lives on somewhere where he can hear perfectly, think clearly, and feel no pain. And he probably gets to drive all day if he wants to.
from hissandtell :
I can't begin to understand your pain, or express how your words have touched me. All I can do is tell you that I'm thinking of you. Love, R xxx
from joiedv :
I ache for you. And I don't think there is anything wrong with your faith. You are turning to it in this hour of need even though you are raging against it. At least you have something to rage against. Imagine a nothingness and no place to picture your beloved brother waiting for you. That would be worse. We all deal differently.
from la-the-sage :
Your wandering is necessary. At least for a while. Trust yourself in this uncertain world. Let your feet take you where they need to take you. ~LA
from candoor :
hug... wishing I could do more.
from dichroic :
I'm so sorry about your brother and glad JournalCon helped the healing a little. Not having known you before, I didn't know you were in mourning until I got back and read your site. I wish I had known, in a way, but it's good you were still able to enjoy the weekend.
from candoor :
late HUGs, and wishing you the fun he would have wanted you to have...
from serenaville :
Gosh. How dearly I wish I could hug you, and somehow take your pain into me by osmosis, or something. Which likely sounds strange and stalkerish, coming from a veritable stranger. I'm so sorry this is all I can do, all the same. Such a horribly wrenching situation... :/
from cruel-irony :
I'm so sorry to hear about Frankie. What an awful and, might I say, a really unfair thing to have happen. The pain must be awful. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Let me know if there's anything at all that I can do. My heart goes out to you, Mare. What a horrible tradegy.
from literatewit :
Mare, i am so so so sorry. please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. with sympathy, LW
from serenaville :
Oh my heavens, Mare... I am so, SO sorry about the sudden passing of your brother. When one suffers such an unfathomable loss, we all feel the shock. Please know I stand with you and yours in spirit during this terrible time, and send up fervent prayers and strength out to you now. *HUGS!!!!*
from hissandtell :
Oh, darling; I'm so very sorry. You and your family are in my thoughts. Much love, R xxx
from thelatteboy :
Mare! Going by your standards, I'm apparently just as ignorant about pop culture! I have been enjoying Jack Johnson for quite some time now, though, so I suppose all hope is not lost!
from beagle47 :
hello, my friend. if you e-mailed earlier today will you do so again and reference something which would confirm that you are the e-mailer? it would most sincerely be appreciated. sincerely. thanks, -=b47=-
from joiedv :
It tickles me to hear you sing the praises of Neil Diamond. I am a bit older than you, and even I was dubbed a total square for adoring him so. There is nothing wrong with having good taste, ever :)
from beagle47 :
he also says the line should have read "but with luck you'll crack a smile at my odd and quirky style." the 'coward needs an editor. you should apply. ;)
from williamtells :
Darling, I think you left out your most favorite toy.
from beagle47 :
hello. just ran your handle on google. near-side or far-side? ;) okay. off i go. will you ever forgive me?
from moviegrrl :
Glad to hear all well. And ohmigod! you're still using those banners I designed for you all that time ago. Aren't you just the sweetest thing. xxx
from moviegrrl :
Honey bun, I hope that all your friends are also safe and well. It's been a hell of a thing. {{{hugs}}}
from beagle47 :
"Pride 2005" 2005-07-03. you count so much i can't count that high. just a great entry on a sad day for humanity. peace, mare. (may we all really mean it). -=b47=-
from ugotsoul :
Sorry! Didn't realize! Happy Belated! I'm really not on here as often as I should be sometimes...
from drowning13 :
May you have a happy thirty-first on this thirty-first of May! Whoa! I almost wrote "thirsty-fist" instead of "thirty-first!" Well, may your thirsty-fist also be happy if your fist is indeed thirsty. Ahem.
from hissandtell :
Hi - I'm visiting briefly to thank you for reading me and adding me to your list. The couple of entries of yours I've looked at so far are sublime, and I can't wait to come back when I have more time. Love, R xxx
from candoor :
I really like this layout... have fun in london :)
from thelatteboy :
Mare, look! I found a jacket! Kenneth Cole, nylon biker. I'm happy with it for now, and at the price I paid it's nearly disposable! http://members.diaryland.com/edit/uploadpics.phtml
from thelatteboy :
See William's last entry? Please, Mare, I've had it framed! It was a thing of beauty, I tell you. Also, congrats on the new addition! I hope to have a new arrival of my own come the fall.
from thelatteboy :
Mare, I know I'm late in saying this, but when (WHEN, not if) you marry Jude, might I come to the wedding? I'll work as a caterer. I'll check coats. I'll be the flowergirl. Anything, just to be there!
from drowning13 :
But it was kind of a mess, wasn't it? I should stay away from d-land when the grapes are rolling.
from loner-blues :
I love your quote! I even considered using it in my own profile. :-) -cat
from tigerlily21 :
Just wanted to say Hi! I clicked on one of your banners and have read a few entries. I love your writing style and am looking forward to reading more!
from thelatteboy :
Mare, love, WE MUST dish about American Idol. Are you with me in thinking that Mario is totally going to take it? Do you agree that Selena Rae never should have made it out of her first audion? Were you also up and dancing when Aloha sang "Work it Out"?
from thelatteboy :
Thanks for the birthday wish, my dear! Also, I just noticed that you said "Sticklers Unite" in one of your comments to Ful. Wasn't that seriously one of the best books ever? People used to stare at me in Madison Square Park when I read it because I laughed far too much for someone sitting alone on a bench.
from luvabeans :
thanks for the add. you going to weetacon?
from thelatteboy :
Mare, love, you're more than welcome. I thank you for reading it. That's what I needed most. That's why I started writing again. I didn't have many people I could say those things to and I knew I could turn to my old friends for support :)
from thelatteboy :
Mare, sweet pea, I wish only best for you in 2005. The world is your oyster (I've really always wanted to say that)! Taylor-
from candoor :
happy new year :)
from cruel-irony :
I did a lot of giving (of food for the hungry) this year but unfortunately, there were no firemen involved. Great idea though. I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
from coldandgray :
Thanks for the card. I thought it was cool getting one from you. You are so nice.
from drowning13 :
And I like that entry about the last few stubborn leaves holding fast to the apriocot tree...and the snow. All those lovely winter grays I would love to wrap around me.
from drowning13 :
I'm a silly talker, Betty Crocker!
from drowning13 :
I'm all cheek and should be punished for it. Will you discipline me, Mare? Will you make it hurt just the way I like it?
from drowning13 :
That's because I am clumsy and accident-prone.
from shevdevil :
Hey it's not a bad omen. his twin of the twin rings my beau bought us and my ring he gave me for our four-year anniversary both broke within a week of each other. a stone dropped of mine and his actually came apart! notabadomen notabadomen!
from lilmasochist :
I'm just watching Jeopardy at this point to see that Ken Jennings lose. It has to happen sometime.
from drowning13 :
You're not having your wisdom tooth/teeth removed just because I did, are you? You are such a copycat, Mare! Copy, copy, copy. Just kidding. I wish you an error-free procedure ("Your TEETH? I thought you wanted your SPLEEN removed!") and a speedy recovery. If you have any drugs left over, be sure to save them for a rainy day--or a sunny day. Whichever. I squandered mine in a single weekend of blurred skies and translucent gophers. I'm thinking about having something else removed, just so I can get another 'script.' Don't forget to buy all your soup and pudding and jello and yogurt in advance!
from drowning13 :
Do you like racecar drivers, Mare?
from for-you-only :
That entry was...INTERESTING.... umm...yeah. Definatly ... not your average entry....wow. lol. ... How much does that cost?
from serenaville :
Hahahahahahahahaha! More not-sober entries! More! Classic. Thanks for the big grin to start my morning! :D
from beagle47 :
oh, my!! did i ever respond? the answer would be a simple e-mail if you wish with mailing instructions (beagle47@diaryland.com) or (preferably because the dog likes snail mail) follow links to a mailing address. whatever you do send no payment whatsoever! (pinky promise -- don't break it). sorry if i failed to get back quickly. but remember, i'm just a dumb dog.
from drowning13 :
Sorry about that. Let me kiss it and make it better.

I don't do yogurt, since I'm a vegan. But the caramel-toffee one from Blackfriars is DEADLY. And they sell them in health food stores! What's a girl to do???

'ello, stranger. i'm giving away a limited number of t-shirts in honor of my diary's 500th entry. click over and get one? my diary would sure be favored by the gesture. hope life is grand...

Believe it or not, I already do.

Hey, nice diary. I had stuff on this site too but I put it all on my own web-site now. Check it out, you'd like it. It's a laugh riot! www.marksbeefs.com Keep up the good writing!

Lollipops rot the teeth. Flowers collapse the sinuses. How about bouquets of fog and advancing tree limbs? Mmmm...Mare and flirty hemlines!
from stealmypurse :
you are invited into my diary anytime as well. you're very welcome-and very charming. keep in touch darling.<3
from drowning13 :
The postman, yes! Good idea. And cutting my eyeball out of my face probably isn't as fun as it sounds. You are a lifesaver. Yo.
from serenaville :
I belly laughed at your "Youth is wasted on the young" entry. I only know the answer to #1, which is "Spraying graffiti", so no dirty limerick for me. :( Still, the whole milkshake thing at the end lifted my sagging limerick-less spirits, I must say! I just can't bring myself to as bravely try my hand at some street slang, so I will suffice to say that your milkshake... whatever it might be... is quite so better than mine. Or anyone's. You could teach me, but you'd have to charge. Do you accept dead presidents, ching-ching, bling-bling or ice? ;)
from drowning13 :
I will! When I arrive at secret motel this evening, I'm going to get a razor and cut one of my eyes out of my face and leave it in the mailbox. The blueness will brighten and flash upon arrival of mare signals.
from drowning13 :
Actually, I find it more effective to inject it. Ny-Quil is magic deluxe when introduced directly to the bloodstream. And it will make your eyes shift colors and project soft rays like headlights (eyelights?). Also, did you receive the flying saucer yet?

And of course you need to see Gormenghast - Rhys-Meyer is gorgeous in Gormenghast, all elfin looknig and evil....

Maybe you could just make it a point to drink a ton of water with the popcorn and see if that helps.

I wish it didn't make sense to me.
from beagle47 :
hey! i missed one of your notes which is, well, simply unacceptable. assuming it never happens again, will you mare me? ;) thanks, and don't worry, i firmly believe all our geographical issues will pass...
from drowning13 :
Yes, it sure beats an envelope packed with anthrax. Or riacin. Or a crate of dismembered farm animals. Or an invoice from God. It beats all these things by a shot gone long.
from candoor :
This is a test. (beep) This is a test of the Emergency Valentine's Day System. (EVS) This test is to see if leaving notes around DLand will make this a wonderful day (and weekend) in spite of not particularly being with anyone romantically at the moment. (ummm) May the results be that all this love in my heart found some productive use. (smile) And maybe a giggle or few (Happy V-Day from my other persona too :)

Errrm. Am-er-i-can. Hello, my name is serena. I can spell. Really. *eye roll*
from serenaville :
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh MY. To be the victim of a reprehensible crime like that is one thing, but to also be placed into overdraft is insult to injury. I am glad that you'll get every cent back. Any bank worth their FDIC won't charge you any fees associated with the overdraft. If it helps any, my husband once received a call from Amercian Express, asking him if he'd made any purchases in Hong Kong during the past week. HONG KONG!! They covered the losses. As with your case, all's well that ends well. *hugs*
from beagle47 :
so nice to hear from you again. i believe i super-gold, mess with the code and do some drinking. that's pretty much how i do everything. ;) good to see your words again...
from drowning13 :
Mmmmm, parasites. Parasites, parasites, I love parasites. And they love me. And they love you. They love us for breakfast, too. They wiggle through the ear and lick the enamel off the host's skull. They swing from the ribs and kiss the lungs. They swim in red light. I love my parasites. Don 't you?
from raven72d :
Lovely, lovely layout image-- the painting is an old favorite of mine, though I've no idea who did it... I'm a partisan of Vienna and Budapest, but London is a lovely place, and I do enjoy your entries... I'll be stopping in to read rather often.
from serenaville :
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh I am envious. So very envious. It is my dream to one day visit England. Despite coveting your trip, I am VERY glad to read that you're enjoying yourself so. In general, but especially after your recent ups and downs, you more than deserve to relax and completely revel. Can't wait to read of any adventures you would share! Be good enough to keep the Bobbies away! ;)
from drowning13 :
Cha-Cha. Yes. Very appropriate, I think. Chaaaa-chaaaaaaaaaaahhh!
from drowning13 :
What was wrong with the old year? Perfectly fine year, had all twelve months, the days seemed to fall in the proper place--for the most part. Ah, nowthing we can do about it now--those of us who can't run fast backwards. At least it's not 2005 yet! Cripes. You, too, have a lovely New Year. May we all stay out of jail this year. Hurraaayyyy!
from emperorincxt :
i have trouble listening to mom too.. heh.. have a fantabulous day. (youre right, that really isnt a word but its more fun this way..)
from drowning13 :
You mean, like lipstick and mascara? No. At least, not every day.
from drowning13 :
That wouldn't be so bad. I remember when the days used to drag by like wounded snails. Now they flash by like faces in subway train windows. Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Another and another. And another. This is better, I think, because there is less time to think.

...behind the lung? Beneath the scalp? Dead grass conquers all private deserts, with dust coating glass of abandoned telephone booths, expired bus passes raining from the sky. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
from drowning13 :
But it would feel soooooo goooooooodddd, such a relief.
from moviegrrl :
gimme the code - I'll make the damn thing stick....
from lilmasochist :
Ack! Stop writing about food. I have been tempted to eat way too much chocolate and cheese everytime I read your diary.
from trancejen :
Tootsie Rolls - No Fat. Swear. I love them, too, and especially the flavored ones. Have you ever had the vanilla? Heaven.
from shevdevil :
Gawd... I whish a man would come over and give me cheese. I wonder what that says about him. Or you. or the cheese...
from lilmasochist :
I love days like that. :)
from candoor :
You have amused me with your words and it has little to do with the coincidence of VH1 (music TV) has a show on about Nelly's search for the perfect model for "apple-butt jeans". Heck, I don't even have a printer. My newest computer is pre-2000. I am often told that I will love music I've never even heard of. I once lived in Canada. And cheers for your new job.
from cruel-irony :
Congratulations on the job offer! Yay!
from flexible :
what was the limerik about my boy's ass???? that's more interesting then what I've been going through lately
from misstress :
Hmm. I don't do anything to my eyebrows either. And I don't own a blow-dryer. This hasn't ever bothered me until you pointed it out. Now I'm obsessed with them. Thanks. :)
from fairly-dizzy :
I never got to finish my thought in your guestbook. It sent it in before I was finished typing. Anyway to finish the thought.... so he will definetly call and you can put the world back on it's correct axis.
from cybercoward :
don't get me wrong, you may be disappointed, but i'm not the "actual" coward. i stole his theme (well, he actually told me "cool, have fun with it..."). there is the "cybercoward" (me) and there is the "anonymous cybercoward," (someone else whose identity i cannot reveal as i'm sworn to secrecy). i can assure you that while i can vouch for the other's character, i am not he. i am either 1) sorry for the bad news or 2) glad i could dispel any misunderstandings. my guess is the "anonymous" cybercoward will never reveal himself as i do here. he's, well, a true coward and i, alas, an imposter. peace. (and i really mean that).
from beagle47 :
funny, i visited your diary last night and thought "gee, i sure wish i had gone to journalcon," knowing i'll probably never make it to one. not that this note has anything to do with yours, but sometimes i'm just like that. i sure was glad to see your note and hope that whatever words you read are good for you. i sure appreciate you reading them! peace, mare. (and, you know the routine...) ;)
from trancejen :
Mare you are making me HOMESICK. STOP IT RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAA!!!!!! (I couldn't leave a guestbook post. It wouldn't let me.)
from cdghost :
enjoyed reading..take care
from banefulvenus :
holy cow great site! You like Vettriano too?
from beagle47 :
oh, hi. i just wanted to ensure there is no confusion, so i leave this here (as opposed to the way too difficult to write in guestbook): "hello. i know you don't believe anyone cares, but that simply is not true. you've deceived yourself. see, even if no appears before you to do it, i am here. hoping for you. wishing you the best. smiling at your happiness (what little there may be right now) and heartbroken for your losses, pains, injustices. so, although you might believe that no one is watching your performance, i am here. i am your audience. and... i applaud you." note: i'm happily, blissfully married, but this i can do for you! ;)
from beagle47 :
damn if i don't love you (platonically of course) for writing so! i hope life is well. -=b=-
from robin-smith :
We are fools. Just be glad you're not flying to NEW YORK CITY. Ha ha ha ha fuck.
from naadupots :
Mare... I've been reading you for about a month now and I'm hooked. Just wanted to drop you a note and wish you well on Operation Mini Skirt, the trip to London, and the quest to win at life. Best to you. Naadu P.S. My diary is locked for now but if you ever want to read it, all you have to do is let me know and I'll send you a password.
from beagle47 :
i flew on the 9/11 immediately following the tragedy/sinister crime. not only was i safe, i felt safer flying than ever before. and, further, i felt fairly proud of not having been scared out of continuing to live a normal life due to the acts of a few cowards. peace.
from duckykong :
I was just looking at your profile. i too LOVE EWAN!!!!!!!! mmmmmmm
from beagle47 :
er, and sees more than i do! ;)
from beagle47 :
thank you, mare. personally, i think i just tend to look more; most everyone else knows more! ;) peace. (and i really mean that).
from dancekatie8 :
Cool diary. Goto mine @ http://DanceKatie8.diaryland.com. GOTO IT NOW!!!! Lata Katie
from beagle47 :
one herb: echinacea. one activity: sleep. i hope you feel better, very soon.
from beagle47 :
i wrote this in your notebook, or at least i thought you did, so you either have it, or have it twice (grrrr, sometimes this d-land ruffles me feathers, mate!): "airports and airplanes. curse me, not for looking as you have, but for lacking the strength of character to look away. oh, Mare? yours were some of the best answers i've read. i cannot believe i haven't noted you earlier, given that i've read and re-read them a dozen or so times now. most inspiring. thanks for playing and, as always, peace. (and i really mean that)."
from fairly-dizzy :
Your a Beautiful woman Mare, don't kill yourself on any of our accounts!
from fairly-dizzy :
bitterness suits you, although I would leave it to the professionals!
from fairly-dizzy :
She has two, Dave and Ryan I would never dream of touching Dave but Ryan is free game, in my sleep patterns anyway.
from fairly-dizzy :
So do I get a gold star? I finally figured this damn thing out!
from squirrelx :
THANK YOU for readin' my diary and for leavin' such a wonderful message. A greater compliment I couldn't hope to receive. Your kindness is sincerely appreicated. Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from beagle47 :
well. there it is then. no bad-date stories. life - too short for them. may the worst blow away like the wind and the best stick to your soul like honey to a bee, or a pot, or a bite of toast that you chew-up in bits, swallow and absorb into every cell. peace. (and i really mean that).
from quoted :
Fixed it. Sorry about that. I should have double checked, but apparently I trusted William to give me a correct link.
from beagle47 :
so, i thought about your theory. seemed foolproof until i realized that i would suffocate. (think about that one for a minute). i think i'm better-off injecting myself with cancer so i don't have to worry about something causing it anymore. ;-)
from amiebea :
Dear Mare, I've been reading you for a while now and didn't realize that your brother is deaf. I was a nanny for a year to 2 deaf girls and lived with a woman for 2 years who was, first, a teacher at the deaf school and then a sign language interpreter. It was my observation through all of that that alot of what we think is funny as hearing people has to do with sound. Inflection, irony, sarcasm, etc. The girls I nannied for LOVED physical humor. They got it. Your entry totally reminded me about that. Thanks for writing! Amy
from beagle47 :
*damn* if i didn't think this is the first diary that lived-up to the banner click. thanks, very worthwhile! "riding the dull edge of sadness..." really, really good. peace. (and i really mean that).

from moviegrrl :
Two things - try brandy for your stomach ache (no really...) and wasn't it Rhoda who threw her hat in the air????
from moviegrrl :
now you see- -the black bra has always been my friend and constant companion - but thongs? sorry i just like to feel a little more secure around my nether regions!
from ugotsoul :

from moviegrrl :

from williamtells :
Silly me, I thought you were in Canada. Although I am challenged when it comes to borders and maps and things. As long as everyone takes Visa, I'm a happy camper wherever I am.
from williamtells :
I like Oasis. I used to be ashamed to admit it, but you have inspired me to accept my love of egotistical British rockers and share it with the world. I recently picked up the Unplugged album. It's very good.
from moviegrrl :
you know what? all i've done so far is change to a different signmyguestbook template, can't take any credit for anything else yet!!!!

from moviegrrl :

from moviegrrl :
really i'd loved to help. i've gone a bit mad with my own designs, so it'ud be nice to do another one for someone else. email me (moviegrrl@diaryland.com) with the sort of thing you want and we'll work on it together!!!
from moviegrrl :
hey babe - chanced upon your diary today. am HTML tarty thing, so please pop over, have a look, and if you want i'll help jazz up your space! BTW - loved the entry too, i'll be back to read more!
from ugotsoul :
oh god honey... your note absolutely cracked my butt off!! Thanks for the absolute chuckles... ha!
from a-splinter :
hey mare. Thanks for signing my guestbook. I appreciate it. I took webcam pics of my special hearing aid earphones. They plug into my hearing aids. you can see them here: http://ca.photos.yahoo.com/bc/clumsypoop/lst?.dir=/deaf+shit&.src=ph&.view=t&BCID=clumsypoop The brown parts are called boots. They connect to a special wire that you have to order courtesy of a hearing aid dealer, or a Centre for deaf people.(a case worker can order them for you) And you have to pay a fee of about 30-60$ depending on where you get it. (unitron sometimes sends them, I think) But they only work if you wear the type of hearing aids I wear, which are a unitron model that has a tab on the backside that allows "boots" to plug in. If you can't understand anything I've said, let me know. I can try and explain it better for you. Sorry this is such a long note. Good luck, and take care.

The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested.
