from phizhy :
You are back! I knew you would be back eventually --now where is that darn tape & rope? ---HAPPY NEW YEAR!
from smags01 :
Thanks for the survey on 12/28. Learned about you and will enjoy trying it out for myself.
from kittyleopard :
Cool diary.
from emiloo :
What? Doth my buddy list deceive me? You're back! Yay! Also, you are too kind re: my hair and my likeness to pie.
from phizhy :
i'm going to assume you are on a brief HIATUS & not completely gone. hope to see you soon around dland.
from phizhy :
agree w/ emiloo sometimes we have to let go. good to see you back :} & a library is not a bad idea.
from emiloo :
LIBRARY = NO STRESS. I am so sorry this job is killing you, and I urge you to listen to the wise Amblus. I will keep my eyes and ears open for any job opportunities.
from amblus :
Good. Good good good. I honestly think you should contact a headhunter and let them do the search for you. You have tons of great experience that I think could be applied to a variety of jobs. Keep me posted and feel free to email me if you want to rant. I know that bad job pain.
from phizhy :
locked diary. :'{ can i get in? or am i not cool enough?
from phizhy :
HAPPY HEART DAY MAYAPPLE!
from kittyleopard :
Neat-o diary, fellow knoxvillian. Karma!
from portia12 :
Missed you mayapple :o)
from luxolive :
I tried to leave you a note but diaryland said NO. There is a note for you at pagenotfound.com. Anyway, do not be jealous of my trip, as I just got my credit card bill and it was terrifying. A pound is NOT a dollar, my friends. FYI. Glad you're alive!
from amblus :
Aw girl, you know I'm happy you're back! I even gave you a shout out (okay, I gave your favorite jeans a shout out) a few entries back. Also, as a fellow southerner, I am WITH YOU on the cold. Bring on summer!
from phizhy :
woOhoO! you're back. good to hear you're alive & kicking. HAPPY NEW YEAR! [I know, perhaps a little late...but still lots of warm-gooey feelings attached to it]
from emiloo :
Yay! You're back! Me so happy.
from yvette18 :
welcome back, I was wondering where you had disappered to, and was surprised to see that you had updated. I think the Jets are cool, their songs are really catchy.
from phizhy :
where are you? how come you got me hooked and then simply quit updating...no fair =/
from amblus :
You don't bring me flowers anymore... Update, dammit! I miss you.
from portia12 :
Missing hearing how it's going! Saw someone on tv from Tennessee (think Survivor?) and thought of you. Hope you're good!
from emiloo :
House fever! You may join the club of annoying people who talk about moulding and grout! The stress is GREAT, isn't it? And, really, you don't even miss the money you used to spend on luxuries like EATING and leaving your house to go OTHER PLACES. It is so very FUN. I'm sorry you were sick, but I'm glad you're feeling better. Want some Seven jeans. Want.
from socialista :
Aw, thank you. It's funny, I feel fine this morning? It really comes in waves, I just hate being away from him. Have to remind myself that it's all temporary and for a reason! Take care, thanks for the note xoxo
from emiloo :
You don't need to apologize for something so touching and honest. It was very helpful for me to read in trying to understand what you and so many New Yorkers went through and are still going through. Enjoy that beer on the porch, girlie.
from robotheart :
thanks for writing that...no apology necessary...so hard for me on the west to even relate. happy that you are home.
from portia12 :
I wasn't sure if that was someone else writing or...Poor Mayapple, thinking of you at this difficult time. It was hard enough to watch from a distance, I can't imagine actually being there. My friend at work is from Kosovo, and she too experienced being around death, after being evacuated and her house getting burnt to the ground. I don't know how people persever, but somehow they take it one day at a time and realize that we have no control over these things, and hope that time will help us heal somehow.
from socialista :
That was intense reading. I'm glad you did what you had to do. I often felt that way, as though leaving 'the city' (in my case London obviously) was admitting defeat. I can't even imagine witnessing something so horrific.

from amblus :
Damn. I'm sorry you had to go through that and I'm glad you went home. That was an amazingly powerful entry and I hope writing about it helps. Don't view leaving NY as giving up, view it as self-preservation. Yhere's no shame in doing what you have to in order to take care of yourself, okay?
from pashiesplace :
Wow. I'm a little over an hour from the city and my DH was driving in to it that awful morning. He saw much of what you've described and he struggles with it often. I spent that day on the phone trying to reach friends but it became more real when DH finally made it home. He smelled like smoke and burnt whatever.
from pashiesplace :
Loving the shoes! Very Chicago. LOL at pantsing!
from yvette18 :
how cute, I want a bday cake for my bday okay?
from yvette18 :
good luck to your guy. I really hope that he get's the job.
from emiloo :
Good luck to your honey! I am thinking good thoughts. Keep us posted!
from yvette18 :
hey there, Im caught up at your diary yay! I clicked on your link about the squirrel playing the banjo, and the penguin playing the quarter. Really weird, I mean the car chasing the pigs, with the police behind them, and the kfc chickens with the white kkk hoods on, eh just did not make any sense. *lol*
from yvette18 :
hey there, it's michelle again. I had time to read some more of your diary. I really like it marianne. (I hope I spelled that right) You are really funny. I'm almost caught up though.
from yvette18 :
hey there, I found your diary, and I really like it. especially because you have a dog named busta rhymes it is so cute. Working on your diary. I really enjoy it so far.
from emiloo :
THOSE ARE THE POPSICLES I EAT!!!! I actually AM crazy... crazy for lemon popsicles.
from emiloo :
Haw, me so funny. Lemon popsicles = little bit of heaven.
from emiloo :
TEST.
from outdated :
I've enjoyed very much sifting through your diary site! :) You articulate things very well...and there's something that I relate to about what you've written. Very cool. I will be back! ;)
from devian :
anyone who quotes phish is good in my book! thanks for the kudos. if you think my diary is CUTE, you haven't read enough! haha! :P
from devian :
i'd like to hear my options, so that i can weigh them--whaddaya say?
from devian :
5 pounds? 6 pounds? 7 pounds?
from emiloo :
Dude, call me when you're lonely ('n shit). I'll be there for you; these five words I swear to you. Ha?
from luxolive :
Eee! I love the fat kitty too. He = #1 with his lumbering.
from zig-n-zag :

from emiloo :
Holy mother of God. The paintings? Rule.
from portia12 :
Ooh, I bought one for my boyfriend one morning, not realizing exactly what the Mc Griddle was. Then I was like "Oh, okay." Then he wasn't hungry so I ate it and...it...was...so yummy. Just what you need after a crummy night shift at work.
from emiloo :
Alright, dammit, I'll admit it: I have eaten a McGriddle. Or six. The bacon, egg, and cheese ones. I know, I know, so nasty. But it WAS really good. It seems like it would be great hangover food.
from pashiesplace :
Hi, thanks for the note! I did add you because I love your writing! Have a great day.
from emiloo :
Um, you have not updated in seven years? Everything alright? Perhaps you, unlike moi, have a life or something.
from socialista :
I am indeed. I fly back August 11th and back to finish my BA... after a three month break which kind of extended itself to three years?
from socialista :
Hi! I haven't properly said hello since I joined this whole diaryland fandango. How're you doing?
from emiloo :
Whee, lunch on the 10th!
from luxolive :
"zwbfyBrokenmanliness? W" is my favorite.
from amblus :
Aw, baby. I could never be mad at you! Just you let me drive your sweet little Element some time and I'm a happy girl.
from amblus :
*whimper*
from luxolive :
Dude, I read 3 and 4 in preparation for the release of 5. I pre-emptatively knew I was going to dork out. Don't fight it!
from emiloo :
Oh, you make-a me blush! You're so sweet. AND, I have also read many a cereal box (and shampoo bottle) myself. What else are you supposed to do while you're eating the cereal and washing the hair?
from luxolive :
PS, in addition to that 1), there is also 2). 2) is, er, something interesting and important. Or not.
from luxolive :
Dude, yes it was tha Rubester! She is awesome. I just caught up on your journal and I want to say 1) dude I am totally lonely too and I have no idea where all my friends went except, oh yeah, a) weird abusive relationships, b) drugs, and c) they moved. Also, inappropriately, HA! to tha funny previous entries. Okay then. The streetwalkers all say hi.
from portia12 :
AWWWWWWW :o) You two are just the cutest couple in that picture!!!!
from mehiel :
I was really impressed with your honesty in your entry. My own college friends are starting to drive me crazy, too, and now that I'm back at home, I feel much more myself, even though I do feel more lonely. But I wonder if being truly alone is better than being alone in a crowd...I'll have to work on that, I guess. Keep posting, and check my diary out if you like.
from nitejohnboy :
wish you lived closer..actually I wish I lived closer cause it sounds like there's more to do up there..Hang in there.
from amblus :
Aw, lady, I'm sorry you're having such a hard time. If you're ever in my neck of the woods, I will totally be your instant best friend to hang out with in Virginia. you don't even need to ask.
from emiloo :
Wow, what a moving, painful, incredibly written entry. Please call me if you ever get lonely. And don't ever feel bad for wanting something more or different.
from amblus :
deep breath in, deep breath out. *sob*
from amblus :
WANT! ELEMENT! YOU MAKE AMBLUS CRY BITTER TEARS OF JEALOUSY! *SOB*
from emiloo :
Aw, you said happy birthday to my momma! Thank you so much.
from amblus :
GIRL, I want a Honda Element so bad. So very, very bad. Have you seen the commercial where there's the Honda Element and the mountain bikes? I like both those things! It's meant for me! Also, Eee! Your house! Very exciting!
from emiloo :
"Fame" is indeed on Wednesdays. So... we watched "America's Top Model" instead! Go, Elyse!
from emiloo :
Two things. First, AMEN to your thoughts on the ham-fisted, force-fed, beat-me-over-the-head-with-it Matrix. X2 was way better. Also, Hugh Jackman. Dude. Second, I should not have read your entry so early. It's 10 AM here, and I want shrimp tacos and all that fancy business from your anniversary dinner.
from emiloo :
Ha! I just clicked on your crack banner, you silly girl.
from emiloo :
Ah yes! I've done that stretch before. My hip flexors thank you. Hip flexor sounds nicer than "side of the ass," I think. Have a good weekend!
from amblus :
Yay for the cute picture! Also, Lord, do I feel your pain. I once got food poisoning on a business trip to rural Illinois, and it was the most horrible three days of my life. I'm glad you're feeling better!
from emiloo :
Cute picture! Also, re: Friends triva: most confusing game ever. "When you collect the mirror and the guitar, you can act out the role of the person on your card. Please disregard the apartment names on the scorecard." What? Glad you're feeling better!
from size18dream :
Hi, Sorry about the tornado. And about Mom and C's mom, that bites. But I am really loving reading you! Is Busta Rhymes your dog or cat? I guess I should read the archives huh? Anyway, just saying hi!!
from size18dream :
Hi. I just linked to you from your banner and read your entry about your family and I have say screw them. Based soley on what you wrote, I HAVE TO SAY I am proud of you. I am 27 and and in a FAR WORSE place than you. Be proud, be strong and keep writing because I will be reading! THANKS! Gina Marie

from emiloo :
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! YOU'RE A BIRTHDAY STAR AT CHUCK E. CHEESE!!!!
from nachtpracht :
My profile is in Dutch, so is my diary... In my profile I wrote about you that you seem very nice and funny. By 'you' I actually mean your diary. I enjoy reading it. I'm thinking about starting to write in english. I like the language very much, but for it's much harder to express my feelings in English then in Dutch, you see? Well, I'll let you know :)
from flyinby :
lol, and i thought i was the only one who behaved strangely while sleeping! my husband could tell you stories that could (and have) given me gray hairs! lol
from emiloo :
Ha, I sleep talk a lot, too. My husband has taken to writing down the more amusing things I say, so he can tell me about them in the morning. His favorite: "It like this: Emily has dinner, and that's the show. Period." What?
from nachtpracht :
Hi! Just read a little part of your diary, accendently clicked on a banner :) I like it! Are you new? (I figured that cause I saw you only have written about 9 entries...) Well, I'll be following you :) Kisses
from sunnflower :
Hi from Suburban Island. Just clicked in from your tickle banner - couldn't resist. I will be stopping back by - I really enjoyed the X-file concerns entry.
from amblus :
IT ENDS NOW. WITH THIS: We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll/Built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll/Say you don't know me, or recognize my face/Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place/Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight/Too many runaways eating up the night/Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember/We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll... I WIN!
from amblus :
BRING IT! There's this girl that's been on my mind All the time, Sussudio oh oh Now she don't even know my name But I think she likes me just the same Sussudio oh oh
from amblus :
Amy, what you wanna do? I think I could stay with you for awhile, Maybe longer if I do...
from amblus :
Actually, what you have stuck in your head is "Manic Monday", not "Walk Like an Egyptian". Hahaha, now you have both of them stuck in your head! Also, I love your banners! What service did you use?
from portia12 :
I'm sorry to hear about your family troubles. I too know what it's like to have a family that seems to have let one down at times. After a lot of depression, I came to the conclusion that you can only worry about things that you have control over. Maybe when your mom invited you on such short notice, you should have said you couldn't make it, and let your mom tell them that she called you three hours before expecting you to be able to make it. Just remember, you have to put yourself first sometimes. Also, I just had to write because to quote your diary, about the employee who can't spell, you said that she spells "scary" as "scarry". "Every. Time. There are other, worse examples but I can't think of them right now because aparently I didn't eat brain food for lunch." If you're going to criticize, you should check your spelling of "apparently". P.S. I think your kitty and doggie are the cutest.
from emiloo :
Sweetie, I am thinking about you. Families can really suck sometimes, as mine is doing now, too. I'm glad you're smart enough to realize that you can have a life apart from your family. I'm about to have to do that too (my dad is a crazy asshole who is making me and my husband miserable for no reason, but I digress). You should be very proud of the life you've made for yourself. You're cool.
from neko-carre :
Okay. I clicked on your diary because your profile could've been mine... and then I saw doggies and kitties. SQUEAL! OHMYGOD! Sooooo adorable! I'm drooling all over myself here. And Owen is one beautiful dog.
from emiloo :
No worries; I can run over to the Convention Center RIGHT NOW and sign you up for the marathon! I'll see you at 5:30 a.m. tomorrow, okay?
from emiloo :
What a cute kitty!!!!!
from amblus :
HOLY CRAP! KITTEN IN THA HIZZLE FO SHIZZLE! MUST SEE PICTURES! STAT! LACK OF PICTURES IZ MAKING MY MONKEY CRAZY! The CAPS is for you eyes, miss lady. I swear.
from emmbee :
Hot damn. Hot damn indeed.
from luxolive :
Rawk?
from emiloo :
Dude, are we going to Nashville Star or not? We must make signs! Big glittery signs!
from amblus :
Yay! I've added you to my buddy list!
