just because i am here today, a timeless passage through this online place, i leave these words for you...
from sturge :
Wow. That came from nowhere.
from all-on-paper :
No worries. I'm no longer locked. :)
from robotheart :
more pictures, please.
from candora :
so weird, our different personae, so weird, our lives in words, so weird, I find myself here again... hope life is smiling at your end :)
from cameraeye :
pssssst, ...over here... (and thanks.)
from babyhead :
Sure enough. Just need a little something to write about.
from sangiovese :
holy cows where did you get that Boris Karloff pic?
from glibertine :
Psst...happy turkey or tofurkey or mashed potato or some kind of day.
from glibertine :
I have Brick in my Netflix queue. The preview I happened to catch on TV intrigued me immediately.
from glibertine :
It makes me ridiculously happy when you update. I still can't find adequate words to express how beautiful I find your diary.
from cameraeye :
it's always nice to see new posts here.
from pablo :
All will be revealed - nothing going on in there of interest, promise! This week or next, new start....px
from x-periment :
new to your site... just wanted to say , loves it.
from explodingboy :
thankyou for your kind note. (the pixies - most apt - a track I haven't heard for a long time - i shall give it a whirl.) ebstar
from raven72d :
The 23 October photo is brilliant.
from cameraeye :
And thank you for all the influence I gather from the fine images you post here. -BD
from explodingboy :

from neptune66 :
Thanks for your note. I'm glad to hear your marvelous collection is safe and dry.
from whatevaman :
stay safe. itll be over soon enough. take care.
from nebulous615 :
glad to hear you made it to higher ground...i don't know what else to say at this point....
from manta-ray :
im glad youre okay, and hopefully everything will be back to normal as soon as possible.
from twangry :
I'm glad you are safe, and I hope that sound finds its way back.
from sangiovese :
Hope you're well, been thinking of you these past few days!
from spindle :
hello. it is Monday night and I hope that you're okay and doing well.
from twangry :
Thank you so much for the add, I'm flattered. I can't find the right words to express how beautiful I find your diary.
from sangiovese :
have been away from d-land a lot, just caught the gorgeous bent tree - thanks for that!
from shadow-box :
"Sunsettree", would make the perfect Fool card for a Tarot deck. Looking forward to new possibilities, the desire to explore, wander, drift... yet the roots of the tree remind you where your feet are, so you don't trip and fall. It's a beautiful image :)
from manta-ray :
your photography = ♥
from likeaforest :
o, you're right! they're really great.
from neptune66 :
Thanks. It's funny how I never really thought too much about birds until I started photographing them. A view through a lens can open new perspectives on things that are otherwise oft overlooked and ubiquitous--simple things like the natural beauty happening on any given afternoon right outside the window. I'm kind of(fully) addicted.
from likeaforest :
that picture is seriously great.
from elasticskies :
why thank you!
from hairburner :
Your photos are also not showing due to the bi-monthly Diaryland crash. Everyone is reloading. More photos please. I love them.
from pulse-tone :
thank you.
from forty-plus :
A Tigger Tush Toast right back to you! Happy Holidays!
from forty-plus :
Thank you for adding me.
from forty-plus :
Moviegrrl suggested a visit, I just fell in love with your photographs and had to add you to my favorites.
from moviegrrl :
thanks for adding me, and WOW! Consider yourself added RIGHT NOW!
from missleigh :
I always look forward to your Halloween shots.
from neptune66 :
Hello again, to make your entry titles show up on your pages just add %%short_description%% to your entries template wherever you want the title to appear. Works just like date and time. Hope that helps. BTW, when I was a kid, PBS 13 in NY would run a double feature of golden-age horror every Saturday night. Would get so excited when that little Universal airplane would fly around the globe... -B
from likeaforest :
but according to imdb.com, dgg is still working on the confederacy of dunces! or maybe you have some secret indie movie connection? new orleans is a very strange place indeed. when i visited a few years i ago i was suddenly overcome with the most curious desire to hunt down trent reznor so i could egg his house.
from explodingboy :
An owl came to visit us at our studio a few weeks so back. it swooped onto the landing and perched itself on the railing outside our coffee room and tried to stare us out. I stared back - it won. My coffee drinking buddy is from Macedonia and got worried about Macedonian bad luck superstition stuff and telephoned Great Uncle Mick, his families leading expert on such matters. I had heard stories about Great Uncle Mick and how he has never said the number four. When my coffee friend was a kid they would yell. “How many legs has a rabbit got, Uncle Mick?” – “Three, Five… Ahhhh I don’t know” Uncle Mick would answer and scowl. I met Uncle Mick once at a wedding and found it terribly hard not to ask. Latter after drinking much wine I could resist no further. Anywayz Great Uncle Mick asked which way it was looking “Is it looking left or right --- or at the moon?” – looking straight at us, was the answer – “oh dear that sounds really very very bad” said Uncle Mick. I could feel the owl’s stare strengthen. But then Uncle Mick let out a great laugh that bellowed across the room, even from the little mobile phone, “ahh three – five – I don’t know” he yelled and laughted. “Say hello to your mum for me and hung up”. Satisfied the Owl said “Ho, ho, ho” and flew off into the night. Just thought you should know – eb*
from nyquilgirl :
jerk-off boys = THUMBS DOWN. the new owl photo is so beautiful. i wish i could have one just like it. usually owls frighten me, but that one looks so small and vulnerable.
from likeaforest :
lovely lovely.
from nyquilgirl :
i always look forward to your entries.
from explodingboy :
film jurist! - how terribly posh!
from likeaforest :
i wonder, are you ever able to uncover the back story on the pictures you find? i am very nosey and would like to know what would compel a small child to have her picture taken in a graveyard amongst her doll collection!
from likeaforest :
ah!! that is the best picture ever.
from sturge :
Tickets from Austin to Orleans are cheap this summer. Any big plans?

nuns can be a bit unnerving.
from sangiovese :
the 5/08 pictures gives me chills, thank you for doing what you do
from sangiovese :
some of these latest pictures, the dog especially, are just heartstoppingly gorgeous
from shadow-box :
http://shadow-box.diaryland.com/040228_34.html I'm trying my hand at this too. Some days, only a picture can say how you feel. :)
from sturge :
Sweetness. I didn't think too much about the Captain setting his sails, because honestly, I thought he was already gone. But as the day went by, I could actually remember where I was sitting on the floor every time an episode came on. How long are you staying for SXSW? I'm going out of the way to make sure I'm not busy this year. For reals.
from eta-c :
I wasnt sure if that iceicle was a was a large turkey baster and i saw lots of faces in the landscape to, kind of like mother shiptons wishing well and it also seemed that after the picture was taken on another that the little girl set her stocking on fire then got bludgeoned by her brother...ok :) enough ramble...I always love what you find.
from ambrosiah :
Wowzers. Very nice diary you've carefully put together here. I am honoured to have found it.
from candora :
I get a sense that there is so much to learn here.

from explodingboy :
hi M, i thought you may enjoy this entry (http://explodingboy.diaryland.com/roller04.html) - black and whites from the middle america 1950's, with music. Cheers eb*
from likeaforest :
!!! i was lured into picking up ms. moore's book solely based upon david sedaris' recommendation as well! (i saw him last week at the very last stop on his tour.) so far though, i'm not nearly as taken with the book as he seemed to be. drats. o, and incidentally, those halloween pictures were amazing. i keep wondering where all your lovely photos come from...
from sangiovese :
Your diary remains a constant source of wonder. Thank you for it.
from nyquilgirl :
I ♥ Meism.
from peth :
ohh Sweet Arbus! Here I am with a home of my own and lots of old pictures and lots of empty frames and lots of space on my walls. you are giving me ideas, you know.
from missleigh :
A fantastic holiday picture!!
from bother :
i think i might actually like broken yolks. though i'm not sure. either way, there's a lot of culinary pondering to look forward to.
from nebulous615 :
ooh, i know where that roller coaster pic is from!
from warmbit :
Hi. Did you receive the Feltsie okay? I sent it to your work I believe. I hope it was in good shape. ♥
from explodingboy :
A glass of Australian red raised to toast your centenary. Cheers eb*
from missleigh :
Thanks for the help, Doc. Yours sound much worse than mine, I hope you find relief from them very soon :(
from habbit :
for the amount of time i spend on slsk im surprised you havent found me either ;) catch me on msn or aim if you want. bluebirds is fun though, i usually post to habbit stuff i have shared =D
from missleigh :
I've gotten them for years, and with regular chiropractic adjustments I get them alot less frequently. I could use soome advice right now though. What cha got?
from explodingboy :
solly looks an exectional model and looks like s/he is lapping up the international attention. Fang the Wondercat (http://explodingboy.diaryland.com/wondercat03.html) also enjoyed international exposure with her fortune telling page - even getting an email complaint from India when she dished out some unwelcome advice. Tell Solly that - Fang say's g'day. cheers eb*
from habbit :
the place in my neighborhood seemed to be selling whole photoalbums for about $10 a piece (at that time they had about 4 or 5) and then about 6-9 flat file drawers packed with snapshots. Most looked like they were from the 70s-80s, lots of weddings. Not sure how much they were a piece. .50?
from warmbit :
Thank you for your comment, I am most humbled as I think your collection is amazing.
from habbit :
where do you get your pics from? found a thrift shop in brooklyn with many 100s of old snapshots, thought you might like them.
from nebulous615 :
[grin] your new car?
from missleigh :
A Honda civic or accord will be as reliable as a good friend, and you could buy one a few years old and still feel safe about the reliability (and save a few bucks too). a manual transmission will not only save you money with the buying price, but it will save you possible costly transmission problems down the road. My two cents. Good luck! ;)
from nebulous615 :
well, i've heard the Toyota Corolla (or was it Camry?) is the best value right now for what it includes as the standard package. I bought a Ford Taurus (after being determined to buy a Honda Civic) and am really happy with it. Regarding manual/automatic -- hmm, you've got me there. I've yet to learn manual. I heard manual gets better gas mileage. But I'll stop talking about cars now before my lack of mechanic-sense shows through. [grin]
from ska-t :
LUX! bathe and wash your clothes, simultaneously!
from spindle :
I saw it last week, I quite liked it, and I shan't go into more detail than that until after you've done the same. soon, soon we'll go on at length.
from nebulous615 :
I'm testing the waters of whether I should just do a general unlock or not. In the meantime, try this on. It should fit. ying/ling
from habbit :
i like your pictures. the beach pics are hysterical. nice.
from missleigh :
my new favorite pic!
from explodingboy :
:-) funny
from toosicktodie :
great taste in music!!
from temek :
Wow -- thanks for the compliment! I'm glad I can still be amusing. I like your stuff quite a bit too.
from spindle :
I have just seen a trailer for The Man on the Train (whose title is actually something in French, but my French is not up to the task of writing it here), which I thought looked intriguing when I first heard about it but too tricky a concept for very many people to be able to pull off without fucking up somehow and making a dull movie that could have been better. and I hate it when that happens. but Patrice Leconte is directing, and he pulled off The Girl on the Bridge so very well (even with what I thought was a flawed script -- the last third drags) that now I am terribly excited to see the film. when or if you see it, we should compare notes.
from peth :
tents indeed!
from santoshchase :
What a fancy time I had at this site, I did, I did...
from cindie-loo :
oh oh..i just love this diary..the style and the pictures...im a captive audience. whee!
from explodingboy :
Fang the Wondercat, asleep on the other desk dreaming in the sun. Has Solomen been dancing latley?
from missleigh :
I always shoot naked. It's less restrictive, you know? ;)
from nebulous615 :
where do you find these pictures, if i may ask?
from explodingboy :
you have a cat called Solomon? Spooky. http://explodingboy.diaryland.com/solomon.html
from spindle :
these are my timid first few steps back into diaryland. give me an entry or two or three or ten to settle back into the way things work here. it's good to see you're still around.
from bother :
i like that picture a lot. it reminds me of my youthful days as a swiss farm-hand.
from explodingboy :
Spooky - Golly!
from peth :
pirogies? You ride around the streets of new orleans in potato raviolis? I wish I could spend Halloween with those folks.
from explodingboy :
terrific to find you up dating again
from missleigh :
two lovely shots in one weekend! Oh, you spoil me.
from peth :
The Franklinia blossoms look just like fried eggs.
from peth :
Where is my parasol? I must go out and view the Franklinia blossoming.
from fleurdelyse :
Hey Meism,the note to me is very compementary considering the thousands of diaries updated every hour on this site.Just a thought-how about Pablo,you and I meet in NYC right around New Year - an experiment we can enrich by rollicking drinking sessions,we can play art whores...I can play Mom and nutrition consultant to both of you, if things don't quite work as smoothly as they should.But me thinks that both of you may end up with leaden, immovable feet after all of your travelling.Anyway,I do wish you a happy and holy road trip.
from bother :
mmm, stripy tights. foxy.
from fleurdelyse :
Wow-Wee,thanks so much to you, my first note(remember this WAS virgin territory)arrived.I discovered your diary while randomly looking through diaries and was struck with your lucidity and aesthetic sense.I and many others would love to see your writing once again in the great labyrynth that is diaryland.I do hope that you are never swayed to abandon your diary permanently.The pablo diary recommendation is out of this world.It is by far the best recommendation that I've received so far. Love from the GREAT WHITE NORTH.
from bother :
let's climb a tree together! i'll wear a dress if you'd like.
from hidden-poems :
Hey i stumbled upon your diary and i love it. just the whole feel of it. i read a couple more older entries every day. you are on my favourites list now. - Jeff
from missleigh :
I just love today's picture!
from peth :
Oh, i don't smell the mildew. I got Nice n' Easy, because I am, and because it is cheap, and I am also that. nice, easy, cheap. shoes!
from lowanon :
Ever seen a man in a Witch-Hat?
from missleigh :
are you my long lost sister?
from missleigh :
I don't know if you sent me an email yet or not, but I just changed my email address on Dland. I don't want to miss your email, so use Leighhall13@yahoo.com thanks!
from missleigh :
Well my dear, you will be missed. I enjoyed your writings and pictures.
from sn00t :
thank you for your kind words! when i get my modem set up correctly at home, i am going to read you every day. because i can't help but like people who have the good taste to like me. i am the sort of person who would join a club that would have me for a member, too... that is just one of the many points on which groucho marx and i disagree.
from spindle :
i remember you used to have the best two hundred and fifty word description of your diary, before you changed it to what it is now. i miss the one before.
from futility :
oh my, another luna bar freak, my favourite is orange bliss mmmmm... :)) geeze, a whole year of pleas on diaryland and suddenly two offers come at once, pah! ;) I'll keep your offer in mind, seriously, I'm a pig yum, yum!
from peth :
OH yes, photos please.
from missleigh :
Well, I'm sorry that we have THAT in common! That shouldn't happen to anybody. cheers, Leigh
from peth :
pretty kitty!
from fluf :
"superbly touching" would have saved letters, as well as this extra note. humbugs.
from fluf :
ho hum. your entry was touching and superb. i'm sorry for ever deleting you. kiss, etc.
from sooner :
thanks for the recomendation. It's actually playing right down the street. I'll make Tommy take me.

from peth :
shoes, glorious shoes!
from peth :
oh, by the way, um, UPDATE!!!
from peth :
My sofa will never be curious, unfortunately, but I just covered it with orange-gold taffeta swaths, and it looks a thousand times better. it is a luminous sofa.
from spindle :
i just saw a very good movie that i liked for how utterly indescribable it is. it's not about anything, and because it's not about anything there are all these everyday things that come through and come through beautifully. themselves and nothing more. it's called five senses and is several stories woven together, each about a life that would be ordinary except for the unusual significance (because i study semiotics i use this word too much) of one of the five senses in each. if i get any say in the matter, your new year's resolution should be to see this movie.
from peth :
yes, but aren't you glad I am silly?
from central-red :
thanks, dawg. i crack me up too.
from peth :
Now I will be eternally jealous of you, for seeing my little Vermeer girl in the (oiled) flesh. Raar! (at least I got to see my little goldfinch by Fabritius at the met.....)
from peth :
oh, I wanted to thank you for the glimpse at your shexy legs...i think I have those same shoes.....
from spindle :
I liked Girl on the Bridge for how it managed to be so intensely erotic without ever resorting to sex. And on an entirely different note, have you seen Tuvalu? It's a fabulously surreal film that came out of Germany a couple of years ago, about a cathedral in the middle of nowhere that's been turned into a swimming pool and the people who run it and the people who frequent it. Which is of course not a compelling description of the film, but it's a film that defies description: if I started describing my favourite parts it would just seem impossibly weird but on the screen it works delightfully.
from fluf :
dear m, no i have not. it sounds spacious, french and vacuous, which probably means the same thing as spacious... like i like. who is it by, and is it new? and keep updating, else i'll tickle your chin. thanks.
from peth :
Now I am going to have to watch Naked again. it has been much too long....that was the movie that forced the love of Thewlis down my throat like so much wad of dirty sock....my esophagous is backing up in pleasure just thinking about him..............
from peth :
i will not leave you a note here, i promise. oh! well, now that I am here, junking up your notes page, let me just whisper, "witches!! and warn you that if'n you don't update soon, I will find you and make you wear strange euro-trash leotards and dance with young Spanitch teen heartthrobs from the early 80s....in BARBED WIRE. mwahhahahaha
from peth :
I HAD rice applecakes FOR BREAKFAST!!!! um. yeah, my father is really into Band of Brothers right now, too....my father had asthma, so no juicy horror 'Nam stories from him....he was too busy wheezing and listening to Zappa-gotta love the dad. yeah, the lipstick should be messily applied, and i need to wear a slipdress and a necklace with bakelite cherries. i think i liked the movie....
from peth :
We will be the Careful Bombshells, knee boots stomping, tresses a-flowing. We will be assistants to the strippers who will be the new USO girls, sent out to entertain the troops attacking the Afghanis. it will be a dangerous mission, but oh so vital to U.S. morale.
from peth :
That's right! I could not remember how I had found BadJuJu's diary, and now I know, it's all your fault! how delightful. yes, i will run away if you will...we can be her wardrobe mistresses/personal guards.
from peth :
i am addicted to your imaginary webcam! hottie! naughty! slightly spotty! you must needs write more oftenish. we miss you in between.
from atypicalgirl :
beautiful drainplug. i love you!
from meism :
Please leave me a note....I hate feeling left out.
