from panicbird :
You've gone! And I've just got to know you! Shame. All the best to you and yours. Let me know if you ever start up a new diary!
from pbjgrrl :
hi.... will miss your dry wit. take care.
from thintowin :
Well, maybe start a whole new diary, with a new schtick. Have you been checking on andrew's diary? He only writes now and then, when he has something funny that is busting out. So you could do that and hence no pressure to add an entry every day. Plenty of people rush over to read his diary when something new shows up. Add a notify list so that people can get an e-mail when you do update and then it won't matter if they add you to their crowded faves list or not. (I'd like to see a new entry now and then... hint)
from s-u-s-u :
Come back then, pretty, pretty please!
from thintowin :
Hey, wha's going on here? I will miss you.
from s-u-s-u :
Oh no, where'd you go? I went to leave you a note asking where you've been and then I see you're gone. Leave me a note please if you've just changed diaries.
from gumphood :
I want to send you an email. Please email me at gumphood@diaryland.com
from s-u-s-u :
You're such a nice guy, why aren't there more like you out there? Thanks for the lovely note. It's good to know there's someone out there reading and caring. I read all your entries and always have a chuckle. Take care.
from laura-ly :
You always keep me laughing...thanks.
from pbjgrrl :
i was wondering who was making my life such hell today.... thanks for fessing up.

from gumphood :
Oh yeah. I totally wrote a HUGE entry about it in my earlier stuff. It was one of the first ones I wrote. I would probably want a smaller mutant power thing in a ideal world, but people would want me killed, so I would need to be powerful enough to deal with that. It doesn't get much better than superman. Although I am totally down with false identies.
from gumphood :
no no. I totally man. mean. not man.. I mean I think about being a Superhero too. But I decided that would be tough cause I wouldn't really get paid...so I would probably rob a bank. So I imagine that I would be a super villian -- which is probably why no one has given me superpowers...
from s-u-s-u :
Hi, Thanks for the note. Your diary is hilarious. Now only if I could be that witty...
from ophelia2love :
hey no problem, thank you for writing me back to say thank you for taking your survey. thats mighty nice of you! i didnt even know anyone cared... :) thank you for making my day start off good. yay for leavin notes. oh yea... -ophelia2love
from mnowicki81 :
Hey... Thank you very much for actually acknowledging the fact that I took your survey... hehehe. Take it easy. - Mark
from laura-ly :
Dude...your diary rocks! I haven't laughed like that for a really long time...I'll keep reading.
from liquidhuman :
Now that you have Gold Membership, you can make banners, yes? I think that's one way to get people to read your stuff. Another is to leave messages in people's Guestbooks - they'll usually check to see who this person leaving the message is, and if they like your journal, they keep reading! But, now that you know *top secret* info, I will have to kill you. Muhahahaha!!! (Joking)
from thintowin :
Oh yeah, join all the "kooky" diaryrings... people will find you that way. The normal ones have too many people on them for you to stand out.
from thintowin :
Hi! OK, here are my thoughts. First leave notes on all the pages you read, if you like someone's writing, chances are they will like yours. Also, if you have gold membership you can make banners to advertise your site on people's profile pages. You can also get plugs by being reviewed, and there are tons of review sites. One note on that, be sure to get something like 20 consecutive entries (no skipped days) before being reviewed, some of those sites slash points to otherwise awesome pages. And also, plug some good sites on your page, when they see the traffic coming to their page from yours (from their stats) then they may plug you back, or at least begin to read! I will plug you in my next entry also. :)
from gumphood :
Don't listen to the entry theroy...I had 30 entries and 45 readers. Time is a factor. Time and updates. The key, mostly, is to update and respond to others comments and notes. The big score is getting in with a Ring of friends. That works well. Also; Review sites get lots of traffic. That could work to your advatage with a good review. I had better stuff than this, but the meeting ran late and frankly Jake light come and me want Delhomle.
from smartepants :
Well, I have some 500 entries and you have about 50, so don't compare your readership to mine cuz it's like apples and oranges, I have been around longer and therefore have gotten to know more people. So don't you go worrying about that. If I were you, I'd change your template tho - a lot of readers for whatever reason won't tolerate the diaryland templates and have no patience to read what's on them when the see them. Even if you slightly alter yours, you should get a positive effect. does this make sense? I'm not trying to critique you, just a suggestion. I have a lot of idiots surrounding me at work and home and otherwise, so I get ideas for my entries through their stupidity. I guess I can get ultra observant sometimes, and the fact that I'm always irritated about something makes me very cynical and people like that because sarcasm is like a shock-factor, they may not necessarily agree with you but it makes them think. You are doing a wonderful job as you are right now, so don't bash yourself. Your latest entry was great! Don't get your pants in a huff, you're on the right track. <3
from gumphood :
I have to go to a meeting. I will give some "tips" when I come back
from smartepants :
cant tell you to veer off from losing my semi-anonymity (sp?) but erm...they used to call me magic. Get it now?
from gumphood :
Welcome back. Just to give you a confering story; I too had a similar incident. I just wrote a similar letter to the owner of Chiles. I was a little sarcastic SOB in my letter as well. Welcome back again.
from liquidhuman :
Hey, nice to have you back!
from thintowin :
Yay! Welcome back! And I hope they reply, I wanna see it.
from smartepants :
YAY~! Youre back and rarin to go! :) 11/14
from smartepants :
oh you SONOFABITCH! You're leaving? Well, screw you - we don't want you here anyway! Ok, actually, that's a total lie and I'm really going to miss you. Dammit.
from gumphood :
Hi there Quill. Goodbye. I don't think you should close it for good, but I understand. Come back anytime. :)
from gumphood :
where is home home quill quill
from smartepants :
lol i wasnt trying to one-up you, I was just sympathizing with your situation :o)!
from smartepants :
ohhh the dentist...BARF! I was clean and cavity-free until I turned 18, then all the sudden an ABCESS (Sp?) came out of nowehere and my dentist made no hesitation to inform me that it was the biggest one he had ever encountered in his 55 yrs of dentistry (NICE) and he was basically unsure of how to go about it. It took about 6 visits to get the whole process complete, and the last one he asked if I wanted to be novacained or not, seeing as the nerve might be dead and I may not need to be numbed (he knew my hatred for the numbingness) so I agreed we could skip the nov, assuming he knew what he was talking about and all. UM YEAH. I hit the f'n ceiling in pain when that drill hit my mouth, and I cried right there on the spot whilst he tried to tell me that since he'd never encountered such a massive thing, he didnt know what to expect. Whatever, doc. But I got 2 months supply of vicodin out of it, so I guess SOMETHING good came out of it. I havent been to the dentist since, in fear I will have to endure another torture fest at my expense.
from cherryvines :
you poor thing ....i hadnt laughed that hard in a while ,lol .pinp daddy lol .missed you ..im back ...take care sweets ,and no ice for you young man !~jen
from gumphood :
HAHA. Can't really complain about a bad trip cut short.
from gumphood :
Dude, Just chill, cause its a small world after all. That blows dude. I am sorry.
from thintowin :
Queen Latifah IS hot! I agree.
from smartepants :
I meant to write this like a week ago, but I thoroughly respect your preference that "more than a hand/mouthful is a waste". Also, I KNEW I WASN'T A WEIRDO! MWAHAHA! :b
from herkinerf :
Your OCD list in my notes section was hilarious!! Gracie's not alone! Gracie's not alone! Thanks for playing, and for letting me know that crazies need love, too. ;p
from gumphood :
Hey there. We had the same Idea. I one of the same articals that you did. That was good stuff. I liked the Rooster one the best.
from gumphood :
That last line was too cryptic. What I mean is sometimes I will write things just to see how they turn out. The nice thing about writing is that usually it doesn't hurt anyone, cause they had the right not to read. And often times I will do something to just fuck around. My friend Dinguspie and i write in the same way. He has a whole entry about Dolphins that wear foam Tuna heads on their cocks. Is that offensive. Yep, but so absurd that it usually doesn't get anyone. However, I think mine was too real to be considered obsurd. Abserd. Oblisk. Hiccup. Sorry. Thanks for reading. Again great was to comment.
from gumphood :
Oh man. You did that in such the right way. I am really hard to offend and yet I feel like that you gave me a compliment. I understand why people would be offeneded. I didn't write it to make people happy. However, that really isn't my style, and I wrote it for one person who I know would like it. I try not to push the edges of offending people, but every now and then I go over the line. Thank you for letting me know, cause I think that important for me to know. Also, something else I will point out is that just because I say something, doesn't mean I beleive it.
from gumphood :
Now that was a good story. I loved it. I always keep a saftey pin on my key chain for just such a bust out. However one time I sewed my hand and the thread went through. Excuse--->beer. However that was bad. Anyway i really hope that your "unit" is okay from all the sexual harrasing you gave to it.
from smartepants :
Hm, I think you got me here...yes I do think size matters. Thing is, everyone has their own preference. For example, some men (most) like huge boobs. Some like them smaller. Some women enjoy more length then girth. I am a fan of the latter. In any case, that entry just had to be added because there were some comments this weekend regarding size, and I had an image of this being the ruler that all the men proclaiming "I'm a full 10 inches" were fond of utilizing :o)
from smartepants :
I have lots of things to say, so sit down! First, things that make me tired (since you dont have your email listed): kids who drive cars that cost more than my house (and their parents purchased it for them), people who talk on their cell phones whilst at a counter ordering/paying for something, going out to eat somewhere and loving the food so tremendously that I eat WAY too much, and feel fat and angry because I'm so damn full, and listening to my man talk about new things he wants to do to his truck is my #1 item on the list of things that make me TIRED! Also, your love entry was adorable, literally put tears in my eyes. AND I used to have a counselor who looked Identical to Stuart Smalley, only he was a SHE, and I HATED HER! I was goofing around once and she was asking me if there was a recent death in the family that caused me to feel sad lately, and I said, "no..well, actually my hampster died a few weeks ago" (mind you, I didnt care all that much and was simply refering to the fact that someone in the family had passed, just not someone important), and she sits forward in her chair, scrunches up her forehead with concern and says "That must have been devastating!" My dad cursed me all the way home for my howling laughter that promptly followed her ridiculous comment. You are awesome, I'll shut up now!
from mindquill :
Since I get very few notes, I will note myself. I love your diary, you are really good.
from thintowin :
Wootwoot! *chicken dances* Congrats and I am envious!
from smoog :
Thanks for dropping by. By the way, if you like Vonnegut, you may want to try out Tom Robbins. I'm rather partial to "Jitterbug Perfume" myself. Both authors have a bizarre, cynical wit about their writing that I find quite enjoyable.
from thintowin :
I like the "In Other News" idea! Keep it up. And thanks for the nice note. I was having more pain than normal last week.
from thintowin :
Thanks for the Gigli (wtf?) article! The moment I saw the preview I thought it would be a lemon. The writers must have just assumed that because J-Ho and Ben Affleck are the king and queen of the tabloid set that everyone would pay money just to see them together. Ah, the underestimation (is that a word? Well, if GW can invent words, so can I) of America's intelligence. Sometimes we are collectively smarter than we look. And sometimes not...
from gumphood :
No no no. I wasn't offended at all. It takes a lot to offend me. I hope....
from cherryvines :
i need a hanger to sit in ..... that entry was very funny and very true ....image being fat,and pregnant....hmmmm you think there small now ..please//♥
from gumphood :
even an insult can be a compliment.
from gumphood :
3 things. 1) Thanks for adding me. The comment made me think. 2) Never ever go to Fenway park, the seats there are so small that I have a girl who is a friend 99 lbs, squeezed into the seats. 3) I hope you enjoy my diary and I will view yours. Comments welcome and liked. I am always here. Just to warn you. hhehehhe. Sorry. I am not scary, I am dorky.
from liquidhuman :
The world is made for skinny short people! Down with skinny short people! (Except for the nice skinny short people)
from cherryvines :

from pinky77 :
sorry about your sunburn ,lol! i had a really bad one once and i still cant feel my leg in a spot. stay postive! lots of love~jen
from localaura :
My guess would be... security. Which is admirable. But you know, maybe you should go through some stuff you've written already and pick out the ones you're proud of and submit them to some magazines. If you get positive feedback, that'll be a huge step, right? And if not... I hear there's a great job in Human Resources available. ;)
from thintowin :
Thnaks for the note. I like your writing. You are interesting too, but not as creepy? lol.
from pinky77 :
no we havent forgotten you ,stay postive and take care (((((((((((hugs you tight))))))))~~~~~~~~jen
from liquidhuman :
Congratulations! Your score was 11, and you're the only one who got #7 right so far.
from pinky77 :
