from candoor :
wow, no wonder you've been gone... working at what you love and happily married newlyweds trumps diaries and everything else hands down... especially while in the euphoria stages... so I wish you long euphoria and occasional reports from your own personal living heaven :)
from doghigh :
We will be there 5/20-5/30...
from doghigh :
cool, you will be honeymoonin' in Maui the week before we get there to celebrate our tenth anniv (course we can't legally be married so this is as close to a "second honeymoon" as we can get ;-)) Hope its (er, wedding and trip) all you wish it to be!!!
from taura :
You left us! Come back and update, please! We miss you!! :-)
from oxfordavid :
Please tell about my old friend David and dear old Ludwig.
from candora :
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 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 funda too :)
from oxfordavid :
Hi Miss-Edith, I just put a note up for you at Pura-Vida's guestpage. I love it when people get all excited about this and I love your diary. Please tell me on what authority you believe it is wrong to intentionally split the infinitive? I thought this was thrashed out in the (London) Times Newspaper about ten years ago. In spite of all this, I managed to quite enjoy reading all that stuff in your diary (or should it be 'quite to enjoy' or to 'enjoy quite'? ). Such fun, such pedantry! ha!
from doghigh :
"that greasy mousketeer" is a phrase I will now use with giddy abandon!!! thank you!
from tuluum :
hey there.. i was just wondering if you had any idea what became of searchn/lisa? been worried about her for months.
from dreamsmasher :
hey, sweets, didn't get to read all the ZIGGY entry, but if you love that album, cd, oops, as I do, a suggestion....."Velvet Goldmine" soundtrack...fab baby!!! But you may be already acquainted.....
from pura-vida :
Since Sign My Guestbook is fascist and won't let me add another entry, I'll post it here. If you want to use my digital camera to take pictures of your awesome rock, let me know. I'm free until the 20th.
from whiskeyblood :
Yeah..talk about flying around loop-dee-loops...shit girl..you done proven my theory...only you're not blue and spikey! Love ya too much and I'm happier than "a tard in slop" for ya! *wink*
from candora :
yours is still a fun world to visit and I am reminding myself to come by more often... hope your new year is wonderful, fun, and better than fudge.
from idiot-milk :
That damn guestbook is being a bite in the ass again. So you might get this message twice: Awwww! You're a dear little person, do you know that? I thank you kindly for the sentiment, and return it tenfold. Have a happy religious holiday of your choice, ma'am!
from djraindog :
Miss-E...SO glad to hear you're lovin' the work...Now, about guys named James...In my experience, they're often quite hot, but they are also quite often playaz and liars. Best beware...Glad to see you're back to rockin' the D-Land house. --DJRD
from whiskeyblood :
boywonders25@hotmail.com...i couldn't read that email address because my computer is a hunk of turd. . . so if you could email me details I'd love to try to churn out a little something for you and your jobby.
from whiskeyblood :
Today's advice theme from me has been STONING. By this I do not mean smoking a popular recreational herb. No. I mean threaten to throw rocks at the ol' BF if he doesn't snap out of it and drive. Yo' ass is too fine to be contradicted. DIZZAM!
from ruvoryn :
Hey, darlin! Glad you're totally loving the new job! :) Can you email me? I've got some Austin-related questions... ruvoryn@care2.com or you can aim me - ruvoryn is my sn. :) I would be ever-so-grateful!! <hugs>
from almost-sane :
Well this made the difference-- when u paste your entry from a word processor into the white box, it shows up on my computer with lots of fuzzy boxes and squiggles for some of your punctuation. Today, it was CLEAR! So thanks! LOL.
from pura-vida :
My life's been really insane lately- going home, buying engagment gifts, writing papers the bulk of which are b.s., etc., but this weekend reeks of respite. I'll call you tonight. :)
from fixinto :
My dad is a baptist minister. Ironically, he always taught me, "Expect that everyone else has as much faith in their beliefs as you do in yours. So, when you think you need to change someone, imagine someone trying to change you." I love that about him. I am a Christian through and through, and I believe it is the right way for me, but, and I can hear the religious right lighting their torches now, I don't need everyone to believe the same way I do. At least you're patient with the pushy ones, and you don't think it reflects the attitude of the rest of us. Then again, I'm not a very good Christian. I doubt a good Christian would make a thousand references to his testicles in his online diary.
from pura-vida :
Miss Edith, the badass professional who, in addition to rocking and rolling, is banking the big bucks! Fucking RAH!
from ruvoryn :
'k, two notes in 24 hours! Aren't you the lucky girl? :) Your current entry (colorful expressions) is so amazing, I had to comment. It's very well-written, and very truthful... you even made me get all teary for a moment there. It's nice to read and be read by you. :) Love and hugs to you!
from ruvoryn :
I am so happy for you! I hope this job is everything you want it to be and more, and is full of light - you deserve lots of light in your life. I've missed you during your 'vacation'. <hugs>
from desenchantee :
The job had "Miss-Edith" written all over it. Congratulations -- we knew you could do it!
from ataraxy :
congrats my dear...I wish you the best of luck in your new job =)
from pura-vida :
Hola bella! I realize that he didn't mean what he was saying, it was just asinine and I was too drunk to deal. :) I'm going to call you right now and hear your sweet voice- maybe we can hang for '24?'
from kimbarley :
Glad you posted... been missing you. What is the name of the birth control you talked about? I'm in limbo since the last one I was on had my body about to revolt. I have to find something since we can't be going without and the other options well they just aren't as much fun.
from whiskeyblood :
All of your tales interest me be they of woe, ho, or..uh..joe? Anyway, glad things are on an even keel and I wish you all the best. BTW..we need to have a little IM session about the exploits of one ms. vida...she's been telling me things that I neeeeeed some confirmation of. *kissy* -Todd
from whiskeyblood :
The gagfactor is now at the above location. Hope all is well in your lovely land.
from easyreviews :
Hi! I just started a new review page and need new people to review. Interested? sign up on my page...
from dreamsmasher :
hey Miss E----thanks for the info....particularly the types of yoga. I am definitely going to look into trying another form, but, abadoning Bikram may be a bit difficult, I'm addicted. I guess I'll just integrate the two. Who knows?!? But, thanks so much again for the advice--it has helped me sort out the practice I want to try!! Did I just r3peat myself?? I have severe brain fry...
from powercut :
nope never been to maui sorry hope we can b friends
from everoboto :
Hi! Although I've been reading you for a while, I just now realized that you have Robert Anton Wilson listed as a favorite author. I've read Cosmic Trigger a bunch of times. I re-read parts of it as if it's a reference/textbook. RAW actually threw his hat in the ring on the California election, which I thought was great. \m/
from dreamsmasher :
I am at the point where I don't drink water during yoga anymore...just alot before and alot after. I've been doing it for 2 1/2 years, and it has made an incredible difference on my body shape...and I'm VERY careful...I know my limitations. I kinda feel that Bikram is like the bastard child in the yoga world....waaah. But, I do love it, and for me, it's more about what it has done for my body, rather than my soul. My body needs way more work than my soul, at the moment. What form of yoga are you practicing?!?! It's become so damn trendy, I almost want out...but I love what it does!!! Thanks for the note, and any other info you would like to impart, I would love to hear!!!
from dreamsmasher :
hey,deary, in your teacher training, do you have to take "physiological" (i think that's right?!?) classes?? I take Bikram Yoga, and I know that is part of their training, as well as the rest. I am really glad that they did that, or my knees would be more fucked up than they were....but, because of the yoga, I've gotten some relief!! Keep it up...people do not realize how great yoga is for ALL aspects of your life!
from doghigh :
God you're just living my dream right now...I couldn't get blasted out of this place if I sat here and surfed the net all day (because I have, believe me, I have). On top of it you got to see Precious from Passions on Ellen. I'm green with envy.
from gagfactor :
You just made this little homo a very gay boy indeed! You are the sweetest Miss E! But it is honestly my pleasure...Pura is a wonderful gal and tough times are no time to bail on people that you like in real OR cyber life. As for you, you get mad props for puttin' all this dedication into making your like better. That takes more courage than staring down a rogue bull. Love and Kisses, yo!!!
from fixinto :
I get the same symptoms every year. My sore throat was so bad a couple years ago, I went to the DR. for strep throat, and found out it was only allergies. So, apparently, you CAN get a sore throat from allergies. He did multiple tests on me, and all he could find out was I was really, really allergis to pollen, which made my throat all irritated. Feel better, you.
from dreamsmasher :
frozen-vodka got it right...post-nasal drip, right to the back of your throat will get you everytime!! I feel your pain, seeing as this Texas allergen-pollution crap has had me high on alavert for two months. Enjoy!! and please don't tell me how bad the molds and stuf are in Austin, I will be partying my ass of there in two weeks, and the only sickness I want to have is a slight hangover...get better soon
from frozen-vodka :
I have seasonal allergies, which result in a post-nasal drip, which gives me a sore throat, which turns into a cough, and since I had bronchitis when I was younger, my doctor told me that it's easier for things to move down to my lungs, which it then does and turns into an evil, painful cough. So yes, unfortunately, it's entirely possible to get an evil, evil sore throat from a minor cold. It's all in the post nasal drip.
from shmagadoo :
Yay! I love yumpop! What a great template!
from taura :
I love your new template! Congrats!
from frozen-vodka :
Oooh! Having recently gone through "the [template] change" myself, congrats on a good one! Very different, I see what people meant about seeing a sudden change, but very cool!
from dreamsmasher :
I am addicted to not using shaving cream because of that razor...thanks for shaving support!! :) oh, BTW, totally jealous of your job freedom...I'm drowning in photos of wacko brides at the moment and want to kill...
from dreamsmasher :
holy shit!! I have not cut myself with the Intuition razor yet...but I did get a nasty case of razor burn when the soapy-thingy got too low. Does yours get realllllyy low on the bottom half of the soapy thing before the top??? Curious...I can't believe I'm actually having a shaving dilemma..but this is serious!!!
from i-girl :
I can't believe the Intuition betrayed you!! Bastard. It leaped down my drain and while I was fumbling in the darkness of my shower, it sliced three neat little ledges into my finger. Fucker.
from rockymtrangr :
I couldn't agree more with your thought that something bigger and better is waiting for you. Things happen for a reason, and I'm sure with your good heart, it's nothing but upward from here. Take care, and enjoy the month off!
from hedgehoggy :
Wolfen: A very odd movie with Albert Finney about a pack of wolves attacking construction sites. It's not bad but I love the Indian folklore that plays well. You'll see. It's not really "werewolves," though. A young Gregory Hines is in this movie as well. Oh, to be a wolf! My b-day is September 6th. Hope that package comes soon! Big hopes! Big hopes!
from hedgehoggy :
"We want a shrubbery." Now, I am so dying to know what I will get for my birthday from you, dear. Hopefully, something glossy to go in my scrapbook (hint, hint). Hee-Haw!
from frozen-vodka :
Damn, I always wanted to learn how to knit, but I only learned how to crochet, which isn't nearly as useful or interesting.
from ruvoryn :
My period has never, ever been regular. When I got pregnant with Dru, I didn't even find out until I was 4 months along, because it was not altogether unusal for me to go that long without even having a period! Don't feel bad. For some people (like us, apparently), abnormality is normal. <hugs> And thanks for the hugs the other day. I needed that.
from iona :
oddly..I know just what you mean when it comes to bosses.
from bibulous :
Good morning. You're a ray of sunshine not matter what discord.
from kimbarley :
Thank you so much for the laugh today. I was just going to read your latest post for the 22nd and then said, hell I really should click on the other two. Boy am I glad I did!
from dreamsmasher :
good lord, I just read your weather profile. I live in the amazingly landlocked pollution stricken area some people like to call Dallas. I like to call it Hell. We have the same erratic crap going on here. Don't panic! november is around the corner with it's lovely 70 degrees...refreshing!
from frozen-vodka :
My cats are all insane as well. One of them has somehow discovered a way out of the house. This is alarming. We'll be spending the weekend pulling everything away from walls looking for her escape route.
from doghigh :
Actually I couldn't stand the gay couple...I thought they were boring, pedantic, predictable and WAAAY too "mainstream" for my tastes. My journal entry was tounge in cheek (and obviously not very good at that! I have since added a disclaimer ;-). The whole speech at the end had me in hysterics! I cannot believe that these guys think they were breaking ground or proving ANYTHING by winning this race. I agree with you. Actually I have only seen about three episodes of this show and just happened to catch the last one...I think maybe my pop culture references in real life are much better than the ones in my journal...I am going to keep them in the 3D realm as much as possible going forward.
from thecritic :
Never fear I frequently go through weight fluctuations and it all has to do with my level of activity. It used to be that I gained weight during summer then lost weight during the school year from running all over campus and up and down all those stairs with a heavy backpack. And last I checked I didn't hit any gypsies or anything so that Stephen King theory isn't possible.
from doghigh :
LOVED your response to that guy!!! My jaw dropped when I read the line "People need to get over this harresment thing" - no, seriously, is this guy for real??? And loved his explanation/excuse for the "harresment thing" being that people aren't being malicious...just not thinking. EXACTLY! When do we begin to demand that people start thinking about those around them and not just themselves? Demand that they realize their actions and words do effect everyone around them. When do we begin to demand respect for each other and enforce it as law? Uggghhhh, it drives me insane that these idiots STILL don't get it. Excellent response though, bravo.
from frozen-vodka :
wow, okay, it's men like the guys at your job that GIVE guys a bad name, and then it's the ones like the guy who signed your guestbook who ENFORCE the bad name.
from frozen-vodka :
Tell me about it. Plus I have this wierd attraction to Danny Trejo, who's also in it. I think Hollywood wants me dead.
from idiot-milk :
Pantsuits will likely be the death of me. And yes, I consider rum to be practically medicinal. Mmmmm....lovely rum.
from cazzy :
Very exquisite diary you have there my dear!
from hedgehoggy :
A great big kiss back to you!!!! I'm outta my mind and so gloriously so!
from desenchantee :
Beautifully written letter! Of course, I could have expected it to be that way, though, since you're magnificent with words. Hope you get the job!
from ruvoryn :
<chuckle> My partner, Sera, adores wheatgrass. Every time we go to Jamba Juice, (which is at least once weekly now that we're lucky enough to live close to one again!), she gets a huge smoothie and a tiny slug of wheatgrass. Makes me shudder, and my son constantly asks her if she'll turn into a cow. <lol> It's excellent for you, though! :) Love, Ruvoryn
from kimbarley :
I think the cover letter is very well put together. I've had to go through more then a handful of apps/resumes... yours would be put immediately in the pile for an appointment. Hopefully the gal will see it the same way. Good luck!!!
from gphitman :
Re: the cover letter. I'd cut it down some. Too long, I think.
from frozen-vodka :
wow, wax huh? that's mighty intelligent. We discovered that not only was it a string mop, but it was being rinsed in the toilet, the only way it could wind up in the septic tank, according to my grandfather, the retired plumber. *sigh*
from thecritic :
That sounds pretty swanky to me! I'd hire you but alas I am but a poor college student who doesn't run a rich multinational or anything like that.
from frozen-vodka :
It is horrible. Trust me on this. I'm dirty and generally feel like crap. I'll be calling home tonight to see if the situation is remedied, but if not, I'm swinging by a friend's house to shower and uh...use the indoor plumbing. *grin*
from gagfactor :
Thank you, sweetheart!!! *passes shot* It's so wonderful hearing of your stability and happiness...your diary is positively oozing with joy these days! Congrats!!!! =)
from ruvoryn :
Thank you for thinking of me and mine during the 'dark times'. :) I'll spend extra time thinking about you today, and I hope, if it's what you really want, you find that better job. You're a remarkable writer and an extremely intelligent person, so I know you won't have any trouble with that cover letter! ;-) Hugs, Ruvoryn
from hedgehoggy :
Of course I missed you!!!! Many big hugs to that special girl with super duper special undies today!
from madamepierce :
I have ALWAYS said that same thing about eating spaghetti! Well, for me it's just pasta in general, but whatever. I'm glad that either (a)I'm not crazy, or (b)someone else is just as crazy in relation to pasta.
from sugar-slit :
Just discovered you today. Your design is really beautiful. Love it. Looking forward to getting to know your journal.
from taura :
I just wanted to let you know that your last entry was posted in '1970' according to my computer. hehe
from frozen-vodka :
ah man, you're gonna go and give a naturally pasty and paranoid white girl MORE hangups?? that's just fucked up! *grin* tell me you're just messing with me....PLEASE? yes, my trip was cool, and I'll be adding part two later today...stay tuned...
from taura :
About birth control pills...I've been taking Cylcessa (I think that's how you spell it. I'll check later and make sure it's right and fix this if it's not) and my doctor told me that there hasn't been too many cases of weight gain. There could be some appetite change, which could contribute to weight gain. So I don't think you would have to worry about that. And I was also told that it shouldn't make me bloated so you wouldn't have to worry about water weight or anything of the sort. This is just a suggestion. If you were on the pill before, couldn't you just go on the same one again, but I'm guessing since you asked for some 'note-literature', you had issues with it...Take care.
from elegantfreak :
Furniture refinishing tips for the fiscally restricted Martha Stewart Wannabes - LET IT DRY FIRST. heh. Thank you! Funny how sometimes the stuff you think would never go together actually works out. Oh, and before I get distracted again. Congrats on the new apartment/pre-engagement engagement. Sounds like a great place, and I got a hunch that happy you will be. It is nice to see people actually make it to happy.
from ruvoryn :
Thanks for the God advice... I'm working on a lot of forgiveness and finding myself again, so I thought taking time out to talk with Her would be a good idea, but your way might be better... I'll keep it in mind. <xoxoxoxo>
from discothekid :
your design is really cute.
from squirrelx :
I don't think you were preachin', not in the least, and I'll be takin' your wise words to heart. 'Victim mentality' is hard to shake loose of. I'm grateful for all the help I receive in doin' that. Love, Xtine P.S.: I enjoyed readin' your views on politics! As a disgruntled Libertarian, I feel lost in the shuffle of our democratic process.
from doghigh :
Just when I thought I couldn't love your words any more...along came 7/10...dead on...oh and I still get the damned forwards and spams, its like the endless loop of penile enlargement emails, except not as useful...

from doghigh :
The accidental poetry of Rumsfeld had me ROLLING! I forgot how much I loved to visit your corner of the cyber world...it's good to be back...you make me smile...
from gagfactor :
Your guestbook hates me. Anyway, as far as the kitties go..you should be fine if the new one is a boy. There will be some jealous hissing and silliness, but they'll like each other. Boy cats are super huge cuddle-bugs too. Especially after getting the snip. As for the claws..well..unfortunately, that is just how kitty-machines play. *shrug* If you do take him just give him lovin' and you should be fine...I mean how often do I talk about my cats like they're the end all be all of life? You too can have this feline relationship!
from taura :
Getting mono again would suck really bad. But this time, I wouldn't tell anyone and I'd infect all the boys that have messed with me! muahah! hehe
from taura :
Thanks for your insight. I agree that school really messes with peoples emotions and the way they think of themselves. I wish high school away more often than not. I just want to get the hell out of it so I don't have to worry about it. I hate the fact that I feel like I can't do anything without the entire school finding out about it and then I'm teased about it later. It sucks. But your right, there isn't anything we can do about it. I think American high schools should be like European ones and have 2 weeks off of school every 4 weeks...or it's something like that! lol
from taura :
I have a feeling it has something to do with immaturity. They want to come out on top of everything and yet by breaking up with someone that way, they're just made out to be more of an ass.
from rockymtrangr :
Well, you know what they say..."any publicity is good publicity." Here's hoping at least the quality of the material increases (but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one).
from rockymtrangr :
Sounds like the sign at the carpet shop is doing its job...you're constantly looking at the store!
from pura-vida :
First thought to come to mind when I saw the fourth picture on today's entry: Boyfriend is a lucky, lucky man!
from gagfactor :
Nah...I'm hardly ever "right"...just an outside observer. When I'm stressed out I like to listen to PJ Harvey or Massive Attack...something so sexxxy about those people...I'm always lulled like a babe on the washing machine. *Huggles* I love you too, honey bunny!
from rockymtrangr :
Thanks for the update...it wasn't keeping me up at night, but I was concerned for you. Sorry you're not getting the rest of the money, but I think in the long run it's better to have this guy out of your life. Give much love to RoboDoggie!
from rockymtrangr :
I missed something somewhere along the line...how did the deal with the guy and the dogs in court go? Did he eventually move? We need closure!
from hedgehoggy :
Have you forgotten about me once again? It's pretty odd not hearing from you in over a week.....
from kimbarley :
I want to figure out if I am a season behind here because it didn't hit me that the soaps would be that way, just like the rest of the shows... so in your season over there did Theresa just marry Julian and did the boat blow up? Which mind you had me waiting for 3 weeks!!! I would miss it for one day and be all worried they'd SHOW something. Hah. I think I need a life.
from shmagadoo :
never mind... everything's all fixed now! but you can leave me a comment anyways, if you like! thanks lots! *hugs again!*
from pura-vida :
Wow. GooseEgg left your apartment? Good for her! I too am mourning Gregory Peck's death, so let's take our pain and channel it into renting some of his movies. Perhaps this weekend or some time next week?
from olei :
seriously. when kelly was sending them the wrong way? and then she's all, "HAHAHAHA. I MESSED UP!" i looked at my sister and said, "seriously? if i were jon i'd say, `no talking from you for two days. no laughing for a week. shut up.`" however, i still hate the father/son team. AND i hate the models.
from shmagadoo :
Eeewww... your boss sounds like mine... pure evil! *sends sympathy to Miss Edith through telepathic electronic waves.*
from kimbarley :
And I thought I was the only one to watch Passions. If you miss an episode you just have to come my way I'm seriously addicted. Fiance keeps making fun of me but hey what can one do?
from pura-vida :
Awww...your welcome note made me smile. :) See? I'm now hooked on The Amazing Race and it's all your fault!
from waxpatriotic :
dude! [it's sar] you hate kelly and jon? what's wrong with you? i'm so pissed amanda and whats-his-ass were in last place. i totally HATE those stupid model skanks. i'd totally run over them with an italian cab if i could.
from lifescurves :
that is my favorite song of all time. i feel ya sister.
from djraindog :
Miss-E: I currently (and often) have on my head a set of Sennheiser HD437 earphones. They are SLIGHTLY more expensive than the $20 Sonys you've been recommended, but for my money, they blow them out of the water and burn them in the atmosphere. If you've a decent audio store nearby, go give them a listen before ya buy...(Advice from a mad audiophile). And I'm with you on Maceo Parker. Mmmmm...
from kimbarley :
You can always do what my friend did... froze her assests so to speak. She put her cards in a jar, filled it with water and put it in the freezer. This curbed her spending habit real quick...
from shmagadoo :
Glad everything worked out with your stero... glad and a bit surprised. I've never heard of a stero locking you out before! Now I know... anyways, have you seen Chicago? I think you'd love it, if you like All That Jazz.
from kimbarley :
Just have to love those family members who 'want' things. I am getting married and I don't want a big wedding but my mother-in-law feels that I just don't know what I want and so she keeps trying to plan things... errr not your wedding and not your life... I'm getting over it. Really.
from shmagadoo :
hmmm... leave the keys in the ignition for an hour eh? Sounds like the stero is trying to play a trick on you! Don't let it, the bastard. *giggles* hope that it worked!
from shmagadoo :
Ah, you have discovered the joy that is every car company in the world. As well as computer company, stereo company, bank, bookstore, clothing store ... ;)
from dano :
Hmm ... I'm sure you've mentioned that you can't seem to find your owner's manual, right? Because that should tell you how to fix the radio. I know that disconnecting the battery is standard procedure for a lot of car repairs these days (with all the computers and things that make our cars go in the 21st century), and both Mitsubishi USA and a Mitsubishi dealership should be able to help you. If you've never set your own code for the radio, it should just be the factory setting, I'd think. You should kick ass with the Mitsubishi people because they should be able to help you, for FREE. And write them a letter. I got a $200 window repair paid for by writing to Pontiac after my automatic window broke after just 50,000 miles.
from kamikazelife :
poor miss-edith! i share your pain, as Volkswagen Creators are assholes as well. i have many a time experienced your frusteration at not having any tunes. my sympathies!
from taura :
I am a rather large fan of Mitsubishi cars but I think it's bullshit that your stereo's all messed up. I say you go kick their puny asses and tell them whos boss!
from dano :
I am in no way trying to make fun of your roommate problem, so don't take this the wrong way (I'm merely trying to make you chuckle), but I did notice one thing: You cried over spilt milk. It's a shame the Roommate has reduced you to this. I do, definitely, sympathize. I had that problem with a roommate last year (until she broke her lease, stole some stuff from the other roommate and nearly cost us money because of said broken lease). I'm glad you were able to write to him, and I hope the situation gets better.
from ska-t :
hey, Skylar Jade... just remember, the day will come when you've only got the one roommate--that puts out!
from kimbarley :
Just erase this one after reading... sorry for the 'mrs' instead of the 'miss'... I'm sure you can overlook the mistake. :)
from kimbarley :
Mrs. Edith... you the internet to find your code. Grab as much info from your deck, i.e. brand, model, etc. and go searching. If not, fall back on those boys down at the local radio store...
from shmagadoo :
"Wicked" is an awesome book. I've also read "confessions of an ugly stepsister", by the same author. He really has an interseting spin on things. I hope everything works out with your Doggie. I've been checking every day for updates on that situation. You're lucky you have such a great vet. I read, too, the entry about "The Pain" - I know just how that feels, believe me! I sympathise totally. Thanks for your note, it was much appreciated!
from mmm-bats :
Good luck with everything, I hope Doggie's ok after the vets today.

Hee, thanks for sending me a note. All hail the ruling life of miss-edith *grin*
from ska-t :
miss-edith, sorry 'bout the slings-and-arrows of womanhood (pale comfort, agruably, coming from an XY-chromosome)... but as bad as it seems on that side of the coin, looks like the opposite is pretty damn good. Deservedly. And, oh yeah, I believe that you are what you drive. Goodbye, Volvo!
from fcprincesse :
I hear where you're coming from about The Pain. 2 things that help me are hot water bottles (you can get them as hot as you want, and that way it stays in the concentrated area), and Advil Migraine. I tell you, whoever makes Advil did a very, very good thing when they brought that out.
from dano :
Yes, all rental cars in the "economy" class are things like the Ford Escort or Aspire (to grow up to become a real car), the Geo Metro, etc. They are all tin deathtraps with manual windows and doorlocks and most don't even have a tape deck, let alone a CD player. I've endured more than I deserve in my rental history, let me tell you. And that chick on the phone at the body shop is a dolt. You should've been able to drop it off in the morning and leave you were getting a rental, after all. If they needed to order parts, they may have to keep it longer, but you've got a car that State Farm is paying for. What do they care? If they needed to discuss repairs with you, that's what a phone is for.
from taura :
There are two words that describe you. You Rock. End of story. :-)
from rockymtrangr :
It sounds like everything went well...now to send the evil dog's owners to the poor house! (Not that I'm a vengeful person, but I do believe that they should pay). Have a great weekend in the rental!
from freuds-fave :
I guess you didn't get the email I sent you this morning?
from ruvoryn :
I send lots of love and hope and well-wishes for Doggy! Poor baby. <hugs> I send you love and hope and courage, but know that you're already brave and strong. You're both in my thoughts, darling.
from desenchantee :
Eep. Sorry for the double post :)
from desenchantee :
Aww poor Doggy! She'll be in my thoughts all day!
from desenchantee :
Aww poor Doggy! She'll be in my thoughts all day!
from rockymtrangr :
Consider the good vibes already sent! It's gonna be fine...better to get it out of the way now. Be well...
from hedgehoggy :
Well, my thoughts are of doggie tonight. All will be go well. You'll see.
from ska-t :
a word to the wise. no matter how nice the person was that ran into you, grab hold of her insurance company like a pirhana. they're slippery, and bodywork is EXPENSIVE.
from gagfactor :
Oh I realize it was spam..it's just weird. The names and all don'tcha think? It totally sounds like a VD or some new Indonesian plague. *shivers* I C K.
from goovie :
word on marti noxon. that woman needs major therapy. i had such high hopes for this season, and now i have no idea where it's going and i don't even care. and i don't think anyone working on the show does, either.
from candora :
your Doggie tale brings back so many memories... my own HappyDog, who was an angry stray given that rare second chance, and more recently, my friend's Golden Lab Marshall, who I take care of whenever he's sick (and just last summer we had a big draining spider bite that required freqent irrigating and the cone whenever I had to leave)... I really don't have time to write as much as I want to, no less read my favorites, but like I say about you, sometimes I just can't help myself... sending happy healthing thoughts you Doggie... and to you :)
from ruvoryn :
I am so sorry for you and your pup! I have cats, and they're our children just as much as our son, so I totally know where you're coming from. I wish her a speedy recovery, and lots of hugs to comfort you, too. <hugs> Happy Beltaine, by the way. :) Have some naked fun with Boyfriend tonight or something. ;) That'll cheer ya right up.
from squirrelx :
I'll be sayin' prayers for your little one! What a hideous experience she had --- and you had too! I can't help but pity the attackin' dogs. It's their owners who've made them what they are and who fail to take proper care of 'em. Folks like that aren't fit to kick off the porch. In a just world, they'd be thrown in jail without possibility of parole. As ever, Xtine / Squirrel X
from fcprincesse :
hey, thanks for the note. I appreciate the advice. I'd approach the neighbours about it, but unfortunately the dog is always outside, and I'm definately obeying the "beware of dog" sign. I only have to deal with it for another couple of days before going back to school though so I'll just have to work on my patience skills... (and you're right--I don't want the dog to get killed).
from katehackett :
To your dog: Be better. Then eat those other dogs. Eat them good. And don't forget to bite the owner a few times for good measure. Just don't get caught!
from doghigh :
I'm so sorry about your pup. That is so wrong. Nasty ass people. My thoughts are with you and your baby.
from mmm-bats :
I'm sorry about your dog, its horrible when that sort of thing happens. I was walking my puppy and a boxer (not on a lead) tried to attack him. Its really scary, becuase I felt if I interefered the other dog would try to bite me too.
from mizlizzy :
Oh, poor puppy dog! My heart goes out to you and your canine precious. You know what they say, it's not the breed of the dog, but the breed of the owner you should fear (I own a very, very gentle natured Rottweiler-a much maligned noble creature). Take care!
from gagfactor :
Thank you m'dear. Thank you so soo much. Today has just not been "ideal."
from ruvoryn :
I do have AIM, and I can't use it at work, either. :) I'd love to schedule a chat with you, though. We're one hour ahead of you, so keep that in mind. You can drop me an email if you like, and we can go from there.
from djraindog :
I wonder if you realise you made an amusing if unfortunate pun in writing, "The sex made me late." I know I'm a dork, but it gave me a good giggle. ;-)
from heatherbird :
His Dark Materials is great! I think I cried when I was done too, because there was no more left and also because I wanted a happier ending...I did the same thing with the Narnia books when I was in fifth grade.
from ruvoryn :
For fresh, amazing fruit smoothies, go to Jamba Juice! Jamba, the lack thereof, is the only reason I regret moving out of Texas... they are the best smoothies anywhere, and I've been a lot of places! :) I know there are a couple in Austin, too, so check it out if you haven't already. Really. I mean it. :) And let me know what you think, if you can. ;) Enjoy!!
from hedgehoggy :
I've got an errand so I'll be gone. Send me an email as to when you are ready and I will tell you what I want and the password. Til then......
from dano :
I couldn't follow that explanation of Passions you didn't mention the shed!
from djraindog :
Ahh, yes...I am, but I seldom look at that page, and I guess I've never noticed myself having been googled. Thanks, though. ;-)
from djraindog :
Hey, Miss-E...This might be a stupid question answered in earlier episodes, but how do you know what people have searched for on google to land on your page? Just curious...(and a little afraid of who might be landing in MY diary).
from sas1981 :
A 1bdrm with a study (almost 1000 sq ft) works out nicely! My fiance and I moved in together last summer and this place holds all of OUR stuff and is affordable too!
from politika :
I found you resonding e-mail (the one you wanted to send, but did not) hysterical. I work for a construction company and *completely* understand where you're coming from. It's amazing how we can somehow manage to keep our cool and say all the "proper" things when we are seething and just want to rearrange the idiot, eh? :)
from doghigh :
If I have to watch Josh poppin' and dislocatin' his damned chin when he sings ONE more time or Clay pronoucing his words like he learned to sing at The Ethel Merman School...and you know every week when that damned theme music starts I tell myself it will all be alright, just one more week and I'll stop watching...if only Reuben could just hold me and make all the pain go away...(by the way I must thank you for including ryan's thoughts, I think I peed myself with this last entry)
from desenchantee :
Happy birthday and best wishes!!
from doghigh :
Happy, happy, happy birthday, to youuuuuuuu!!!!!!
from ruvoryn :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :) I hope your day is as cool as you want, and you have a fabbity fab fab time doing whatever you get to do. :)
from miss-paige :
Happy Birthday hunny. Hope your having a great day sounds like you got good plans! Enjoy! Miss-Paige xXx
from goovie :
happy birthday, chica. hope it's a great one! of course it will be -- you have a dvd of bring it on!
from doghigh :
Oh my god...this chick is a train wreck! My cousin and I had a friend that was ALWAYS faking major illnesses (you name it from migraines to cancer she had it ALL), making up friends and boyfriends and dramas...she had a friend, called him Binky, that, over the course of the years, has died several different times with reasons such as grand mal seizure to suicide to motorcycle accident (he was decapitated in that one)...although I admit she provided a certain entertainment I finally had to cut that Planter's shareholder free...I think I'll write about her...thanks for the inspiration...
from liquidhuman :
Ooooooooooh, Chicago. So good.
from doghigh :
Lord of the Peeps!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you...
from doghigh :
Ok, seeing ryan on your pages is sort of like those sweeps tricks they used to use on tv...kind of like Laverne & Shirley showing up on Happy Days. Good stuff.
from taura :
I'm glad to see your joining the 21st century! My IM screen name for AOL is MsSunshineDied. Feel free to talk to me at any time. :-)
from doghigh :
Ashcroft looks totally like a child molestor...like one of those "come here and sit on Uncle John's lap and play ride the horsey" type of psycho jobs...also, for what its worth, I think Condeleeza Rice looks like she really would enjoy wearing a leather mask...but hey, you know, that's just fine with me.
from ataraxy :
Damn guestbook wouldn't let me put another message right after I just put one, so I gotta leave it here. Anyway, here's what I was going to say: "Ewww, I can't believe I said your instead of you're! I'm so sorry, that was very atrocious of me." If you read the guestbook first, it will make sense.
from doghigh :
And dear god the orgasm theory is a work of art...I will do my best to keep the chain alive. And do we think Laura and W still do the hokey pokey? Do we think Sadaam can still get it up? Don't even get me started on Tony Blair...
from doghigh :
I have only had two roomates in my life. NEVER, ever again would I go through that...NEVER. Blessings on you. May you sip that margarita with joy in your heart and a clean table to set it on.
from haloaskew :
I totally sympathize with your roommate plight. When I had roommates back in college, I was the Mother Hen. I gathered their monthly checks to pay the bills (after much hounding), kept things clean, did the shopping and divied up the receipt...and waited and waited for them to pay me back. One time, one of my roommates argued with me about purchasing a bottle of Pine-Sol. "Why do we need this?" she asked. "To clean the kitchen floor" I replied. "That's not what my mom does...she just uses hot water." Guuuuuhhhhh!
from ruvoryn :
I am so warmed knowing my words touched your heart. I miss Mr Rogers, too. Thank you for taking time out of your sleepyness to write me that note, you brought happiness to me today. :)
from mmm-bats :
I stumbled across ur diary from ur banner. I used to cut myself, and sometimes I still do. Talking to a therapist didnt help me, I just need the support of my friends (which at the time I didnt have). Just continue to be there for her, tell her that she doesnt need to cut herself, and that if she feels she does, then she should talk to u instead. Hope that helps.
from annoxford :
Hi, I've been reading your diary for awhile and just today (Monday) saw your entry about Gooseegg slashing at her wrists. It sounds like something broadly called self-injury which can take quite a variety of forms from eating disorders to compulsive cutting/bruising/breaking bones. Most people who self-injure do it as a response to stress or as a way to aleviate emotional pain. From what you've said about Goosegg, my guess is she's either reacting to stress (being unemployeed after being fired multiple times would do that) or as an appeal for attention. Note that I'm not trained in this field but I have a sister who has self-injured for years and I've learned a lot about it trying to help her. Goosegg should definitly get in with a therapist of the behavior/cognitive sort. Doesn't sound like she needs drugs but it does sound like she needs somebody to help her figure out why she "goes off" this way and to figure out how she can deal with to much stress/needing attention in more positive ways. If you've got questions or want more information, feel free to email me at a_ox@yahoo.com. Love reading your journal, good luck!
from bettyalready :
Dudes, I'm glad I checked my email because I wouldn't have seen your comment otherwise! Thanks so much. I'll have to check it out and I appreciate the resource. And what the hell is this about someone harrassing Ryan8-cut? That's too damn bad and I'm dissapointed ryan won't be writing any longer.
from nixtress :
What a sad day in Dland history. Convey to Ryan,please, if/when you speak to him, that his humor and poignancy will be missed by this follower.
from weezer1d :
miss e, please tell ryan8-5cut that he rules, and i hope someday he will start writing again. damn snooping kids.
from squirrelx :
Virtual hug received, reciprocated, and most profoundly appreicated! Thank you for bein' so kind. Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from doghigh :
God, your food descriptions never fail to make me drool...what exactly does lavender honey taste like...I mean how is it different from plain 'ole honey?
from desenchantee :
Happy Early Birthday since you didn't say when it was!
from taura :
I would love to hear about how you managed to set a house on fire with a cleansing ritual. :-) Too bad you weren't from Western Pennsylvania. I know some good firemen!
from fcprincesse :
ouch! sorry to hear about the spain, b/f thing... *hugs*
from ataraxy :
Dude, His Dark Materials is the best trilogy EVER. I'm so thrilled to hear you're reading it. Props to you. =)
from ruvoryn :
Love, real love, never deminishes. My sweetie and I have been together for almost 10 years, married for almost 7, and we still act like newly weds. And we even have a 5yr old! :) People are constantly shocked when they ask how long we've been together and we tell them 7 years... they expect us to have just gotten together. In a way, it's sad, because it speaks loudly on the state of things today. But for us love-birds, it's swell!
from ataraxy :
Hello...I stumbled upon your diary and am now greatly enjoying it. I just have one question: how do you find out from which google searches people have found your diary? It's making me so curious to see if people have found mine on some weird fluke. Anyway, great diary you have here. Thanks.
from fcprincesse :
hey, any time you're in Canada and want to watch Pride and Prejudice... although yes, it was probably too cold for you today, since it hit a balmy 30ishF...
from loveandlust :
I agree, sunset beach was the best soap ever. I miss that show, passions is okay I think if it didnt have all that tabitha, dark side crap in it than it would be better
from linzmat :
It does make sense. Really it does. And you make an excellent point. But I, being in love with the said bleached bloodsucker myself, am a hopeless romantic when it comes to that. I think he just needs a hug. And yeah...if the writing were to improve a whole lot...it would make it all much more interesting.
from dano :
Notebook ... guestbook ... I always have trouble deciding! Anyway, I just wanted to leave a message not related to any particular entry to tell you how much I enjoy reading your diary every day. I don't know why, I just do. And does it say something that I couldn't get through you rant on Catholicism but made it to the end of the menstrual talk? I guess knowing more about cramps will help me understand my girlfriend more than Catholicism will.
from ryan8-5cut :
hilarious entry today..."now they don't lok alike at all." I love it
from i-am-bubbles :
I just read your entry about V.C. Andrews and I just HAD to comment with a huge ME TOO!! to practically everything you've said. I started reading them when I was in late grade school, and loved them. It was more this strange undescribable facination with them, and so I THANK YOU for finally putting it into words. I don't think many people of my generation (I'm 22) read them - my mom had them. But my friend did, and we'd trade series the other didn't have - I've still been meaning to finish the Ruby series... but anyway, I love your journal, and it's just cool to hear another person admit to liking those books.
from linzmat :
Yay for Buffy lovers! I totally agree with you on just about all those counts. What are you thinking about Spuffy? And, congrats on the un-pregnancy. I am definitely going to be keeping up with your journal, you're a very entertaining wordsmith. Rhyming IS funny!
from neverdoll :
congrats on not being preggers! I had a similar terrifying experience very recently, staring at the little white plastic tab in my hand silently chanting "don't turn blue, don't turn blue..."
from ursaminor2 :
So I am poking around diaryland, trying to figure out how to put off anything productive a bit longer, when I come across your site again (like the new look) and find that YOU ARE FROM AUSTIN! Me too! One more person in this city to like. Hope to see you around town. My husband is a musician (keybored player), he is playing at the Steamboat tomorrow at 10:00 with his band Gideons Press (Rush or Yes meets Cold Play), maybe I will see ya round sometime. Take care!
from shady78 :
just had to say your journal rocks. i'll definitely be back to read more...i like the way you write. and congrats on not being pregnant! ;o)
from jenna-face :
hey! i recognized your ad from buffy. drusilla's doll, miss edith.. are you a fan? if you are Im me anytime!
from sealettuce :
i love your journal design! its beautiful.
from hedgehoggy :
Did you get my email? If so, I'll send you the address. Just sign that guestbook or whatever. It sucks that you are busy since we all need a little wisdom from ya.
from doghigh :
Oh and I have been reading up on Ayurveda, that you have mentioned in your diary...turns out I have the warmth in my belly or something like that...anyway I have followed some guidelines (not fully in the pool yet) and found that, yes, in fact I do feel better when I eat stewed apples...
from doghigh :
a-ha! so you were the one who dropped me! ;-) I nearly went comatose when I found that my already limited readership went down by one...seriously though thank you for adding me back, I feel warm and tingly all over...I think I'll go slip under the covers to enjoy it...
from taura :
Well...since you insisted upon it so much, maybe I will look into doing yoga. But I'm a 15 year old girl from Pennsylvania who doesn't have a job which means money for me is limited. So taking a class is out of the question. Maybe I'll just look for a website with a yoga workout listed on it or something that I could try. Do you have any ideas?
from desenchantee :
I made it to the end too! You can send the mix to...just kidding :) Thoroughly enjoy reading your entries, even though sometimes I need to dig out my dictionary. Loved today's entry. And I really need a super soaker full of holy water. -Desenchantee-
from taura :
I'm so proud of you for stating that you a witch! I don't know how many people would openly state that they practice the Craft, but go you! I must try this non-Christian thing called Yoga....seems relaxing. And I did make it to the bottom of your entry! You don't have to send me a mix CD, unless you want to....how about some cookies?
from hedgehoggy :
Yeah, I got to the end! Do I get my mix CD or what!?! Put Garbage and Massive Attack or something really freaky. You make A LOT of good points and yes........I like your diary, too. In fact, I am going to recommend a friend that studies religion to read this entry.
from dano :
I made it to the end, but I skipped most of the Catholic crap. I heard enough of that at a four-year private university. I only wish I'd seen TDS. Damn those 7 p.m. Conan reruns that bumped the evening rerun of Jon!
from megsicle :
HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
from anabell :
Mojo! Hilarious! Oh, and that slip Melissa made -- "I'm a real mercenery type" -- is probably true, anyway! =)
from necoka :
Girl! You are so right about Mojo. Jesus, her eye shadow!!!!!!! Someone, pleeeeease, write her to let her know GLITTER IS, AND HAS BEEN FOR A LONG TIME, OUT! God, help us all. OK. OK. I did feel a little sorry for her in the end, mainly because I ABSOLUTELY HATE Melissa and would, yes, even pick "The Mojo" over that loser. Note to Melissa: Save us from any further demonstrations of the definitions of words with your stupid hand gestures! ie "cosmic". Anyhoo. Tangent. Alias is my favorite show. So very "La Femme Nikita". Last Sunday left me breathless.I want to marry Vaughn! Uh-hum. Anyway, great diary...will be back.
from jkatty :
the guestbook wouldn't let me sign again, so I repeat the message here- No madam, I cannot in good conscience endorse or participate in such lurid and tawdry exploitations of the baser aspects of our human nature. Those nasty ass people are not for me. I remain your humble servant, jkatty
from minrho23 :
whoo! A blogger after my own heart. Mojo sucks! She's not fit to piece together MojoJojo's brains. And yes, Alias is awesome. Feels so good to snark over television.
from hedgehoggy :
Yes! Alias was sooooooooooooo good! Oh, it feels great to see someone else mention it. Nice shocking ending! Sloane will be back. Yay!
from luckiestars7 :
Hi, I have been reading your diary for some time now (have you added as a favorite). You seem to know so much about yoga! I have been wanting to try yoga for quite a while, but I really haven't done exersize at all lately, and I was wondering what you thought the best type of yoga for a beginner is? Thanks :) Heather
from iamthegraham :
i just read your diary for the first time and even though (as you said) it was a bleh entry it made me laugh a lot!! soooo sorry you had to deal with all of those stories, they sounded painfully bad. i know how that goes..but anyway...i had a good time reading your diary. bye!
from goovie :
hey! i got the cds in the mail and they rock. so many songs i love, so many new songs to love. you make a great mix. thank you!
from ska-t :
Any place that considers bock as it's favorite beer, and has eighty-degree temps in January is alright in my book. True, the incessant Lone Star stamp is unnecessary... the title will always remind me of Pony Piss. As for GooseEgg... it's about time to ask, "Have You Accepted The Lord As Your Personal Savior?" A sure conversation-halter.
from rockbaby14 :
Ooohh....a virtual shiner. I wanna see! :) And I love American Idol. I'm gonna write an entry on it later. All my favorite parts. But for now, I shall have to suffer through class. Ugh!
from brice-o-boy :
Miss-edith, please don't play with my heart:( I don't see my name but thanks for the offer, you are sweet.
from jkatty :
wow! I love diaryland! You signed my guestbook AND took my quiz! Dolly Parton is by far the best choice. PS-I'm something like your country cousin-I live in Bastrop, you know.
from sampsman :
you know, you've been awfully informative and helpful, and I just wanted to say thanks. I will take a look at the writer you told me about. As for yoga, I knew it had something to do with breathing, but I didn't know exactly how the theory went. Maybe I'll try it some time.
from ruvoryn :
Hi! Your entries are always so interesting! :) I was wondering, though, on the website for Ayurveda, how do you find out what you are? I looked and looked, like the good little diaryland reader I am, but I couldn't find anything. :) Thanks for the help, in advance, even if you don't give it. ;)
from flyinby :
i really enjoyed your entry about the news and the happy dance at the computer and all that. i will be back, i am certain of it!
from rockbaby14 :
Ooh, which banner was it? I had 2 running today. :) I swear I'm addicted to making banners! I'm gonna have to end up buying some more!! I have a ton of banner ideas but I wanna save some view for later....unless I buy more, that is!! I'm so bad at saving money! I'd rather get me some banners....yeah!! :)
from rockbaby14 :
Hey! I just finished reading your entry for today and then went back to my page and saw that you signed my g-book. Well, I think you did delete my name on purpose! Just kiddin' :) It's alright. I figured that's what happened, but I didn't wanna be all like, "Bah! My name is gone forever!!!! I demand that you put it back, or else...." But thanks for addin me back. I love the love. hehe Have a great day girl! :)
from lifenlove :
hi miss-edith im patricia and i loved your profile my favorite movie is Romy and Michelle's Highschool Reunion too well, nice talking to you bye
from neko-carre :
Hi! Just thought I'd pop in to say hello. Love your banner. Gil Elvgren perhaps? And I've come to the conclusion that my cat and dog have merged into the same being. :-D
from chauffi :
I would love some help finding a yoga regime that I can both do and like. I did the kind with the hot room and all the actualizing and it was not very pleasant. I was thinking of trying that Robert Yee series because it's ranked so highly on Amazon. And I had no Idea they had Fry's in Austin. How interesting. I thought it was a local thing. Is it still a geek haven?
from mexijew :
i am enchanted by your layout and your verve! how did the rice cakes turn out?
from golfwidow :
I don't want to Be Made An Example anymore. Can I have cakes again? Please put me back on your Buddy List. I'll be good. I won't mention rhubarb even once.
from chauffi :
I like your new layout. It's lovely.
from gcchick182 :
""I have been in love with him for ten years" Um. . . didn't she say she had never really talked to him at all? And this guy? Such an asshole. I mean, a really obvious asshole. Everything about him from the slightly-too-well-fed look so many frat-boys have to his hair and the way he dresses and the smarmy look on that piggy round face of his just screams "I am a smug bastard with a tiny dick which causes me to compensate by fucking a lot of pathetic needy women and bullying men, especially gay men because I love fucking women. When I'm sober enough to get it up that is." Sort of like a younger version of Jack Nicholson at the end of Carnal Knowledge. How anyone could ever touch this oily looking motherfucker is beyond me. He has the shiny, puffy face and body of a chronic boozer." ***** i totally agree!! i mean, she doesn't even KNOW the guy, how can she possibly be in love with him AND expect a marriage propsal?! it was sweet, but all he wants and expects is sex. really. she's just infatuated with him and in love with the fact that the fairytale princess story could probably come true by getting reunited with her prince charming from junior year of high school.
from our-views :
Hi! Interested in having a quick review done? Come by Our-Views.
from golfwidow :
Your new template is lovely and warm, unlike the weather, so it's nice to drop in and read. There's something screwy in your guestbook, though ... the "sign" button comes up like a field on my computer, and I can't submit. How odd, and not at all pleasing. But anyway. Go you.
from heidiann :
Well I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks "The Tall Girl" is completely wacked out of her gourd. And I love your new look! =)
from olei :
i think the bachelor is on ABC. at least it was last time. and also, that dude on high school reunion TOTALLY WAS A LOSER! i saw that part and that was all i could force myself to watch. and that chick? what? seriously. [your gbook is messed up, looks like. i broke it.]
from fcprincesse :
my god, miss-edith, your new layout is fucking beautiful. wow. I bask in its (hmm... already used word beautiful, beauty now sounds redundant) whatever, you know what I mean. but yeah, I love it.
from desenchantee :
VCA entry!! It's so rare to actually find a fan these days without going to a VCA-oriented site. She is my favourite author, and strangely enough, My Sweet Audrina is my favourite book of all times! But yes I do agree, you don't want to start explaining the plot to people. I also agree with another thing: the older, actual VCA written books are better. Andrew Neiderman tried hard to duplicate her works, and I admit the older Andrew-written ones were better (aka. the end books of the Casteel series) but the latest works are not up to par. It's always a joy to read your entries. VCA fans unite :)
from elegantfreak :
Thank you for dropping a note at my diary! I've really enjoyed your entries, and I must admit, I am more than a little envious of your domestic skills. As one who sees toast as challenging I often find your exploits in the kitchen to be downright amazing. You asked about my martial arts. Currently I'm studying both Kickboxing and Chinese Kenpo (basically a more fluid form of Karate). Interestingly enough, the Kickboxing is the one with the rules while the Kenpo is down and dirty street fighting. I've also done Tai Chi, and a friend showed me a couple of basic Yoga stretches. I really respect people who practice Yoga. It takes a lot of discipline. I eventually plan on getting back into the Tai Chi, but for anyone interested in taking a self-defense martial arts class, I would definitely suggest a Karate or Kenpo class, an Akido class, or another discipline that focuses on practicality. Other forms may be more fun to watch, but as I have been discovering, their effectiveness is often limited to the competition mat, and there are no mats in dark alleys. Anyway, your diary is really entertaining, and the layout is absolutely soothing. Thank you for sharing this bit of you with the rest of us. Long Live the Library, the Elegant Freak.

My friend (desenchantee) recommended your diary to me and I have been practically in love and in awe with the way you write. You are absolutely talented and I wish that I was half as good of a writer as you are. Your entries are so insightful that while I'm readin them, though they are quite long (which is okay), I feel I'm taken away and almost observing your life. I'm not sure if that is quite what you were going for in writing, but your so descriptive! I was especially surprised today to read your discussion on V.C. Andrews books. I have been in love with VCA books ever since I was in 4th or 5th grade (I'm in 10th now) and I look forward to everyone. I continually re-read every single one of them and sometimes catch myself reading two or three different series at a time. Keep up the wonderful work on your diary and don't listen to those stupid reviwers. Just think, they probably reviewed your diary at the end of a long day of work and were tired and cranky and full of themselves. *hugs miss-edith* ~Taura~

I was never an 11 y.o. girl but I was an 11 y.o. gay boy. As such I too read the "Flowers in the Attic" series. I wanted to be named Jory because I think I had a crush on him ( I really don't remember alot about the books to be honest...just vague feelings). Anyway in retrospect they were really as fucked up as you point out. My cousin and I were absolutely enthralled with these books...my mother even gave me "Petals on the Wind" as a stocking stuffer one year! Damn I feel so much better getting that off my chest. Thanks for being my confessor, Miss-Edith.
from tvzero :
i had you on my list to leave a note because you added me as favorite. now i see i am not in fact a favorite. maybe i got it wrong. or maybe you realized i suck. either way, i still think it warrants a "hey."
from hedgehoggy :
Faith is on her way back! She is due for the last 5 episodes. Hey, I agree. Lena Olin is sexy as hell with her take no shit attitude. Then again....I'm a guy with THE best surround sound system. XXX never sounded better.
from rockbaby14 :
...and in addition, dont let the review bother you. I go to diaryreviews a lot, and vicky is always bitching about others diaries. she's the harsh one. wish she had the courage to leave her own diary address....then we'd all leave her email bombs!! hehe....
from rockbaby14 :
As I'm writing this note to you about a mistaken banner identity, floating just above this message box is actually, YOUR banner. The one that says, "Miss Edith speaks out of turn. She is to be made an example and shall have no cakes today." Well, its a funny thing, and I just thought I'd tell you. I saw a banner and thought it was yours and was like, score! cuz I was on my way to go to your page, and here's my easy link. But it turns out, I looked at it too quickly, and instead of going to your site, I went to missmeredith's. 3 little letters threw me off guard. Just thought I'd share with you for some reason. :)
from hedgehoggy :
Oh, you forgot "Edward Penishands" and by the way ....it was John C. Holmes. Legend has it that "It" was 13 inches. Yikes! Cute entry.
from hedgehoggy :
I just wanted to say that you have one of the best diaries around. Came across you by accident and laugh along with you ever since. Plus, you write in a way that makes me feel like I observe with you. Who cares what a review says. Just have fun with it!
from invisibledon :
thanks for visiting
from desenchantee :
I look forward to (almost) everyday coming home to a new entry from you. I sit there and read, and I think you have passion in what you write, no matter what that reviewer says. That reviewer is only one person out of all the people that read your diary, and most certainly the only one that sees it as less-than-perfect. *hugs Miss-Edith* Hope you feel better about it :)
from bbwing :
I like your diary, it's interesting. That Vicky reviewer doesn't seem to be too nice to anyone. Forget That review.
from sampsman :
You really shouldn't worry about what other people, especially "reviewers" (whoever they may be), have to say about your diary. I think run-on sentences are fun and exciting and a part of ever day life just like breathing or going to the bathroom or having a fine cuban cigar . . . oh nevermind. I like your diary, it cheers me up. So chin up, and I'll throw a hug yer way (even though I am grumpy smurf and I absolutely hate hugs!)
from fcprincesse :
hee. you said vent your spleen. I love it. screw the reviewers, you write a damned fine diary.
from goovie :
*hug* reviews suck. reviewers suck even more. your diary is lovely, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
from charmed1k :
I love all the Miss-Edith and Buffy references. I'm a fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and I find it very interesting. Keep up the great writing!!!
from diaryreviews :
It's kind of amusing that I'm looking at a banner ad of yours while writing this. So, your review is up at http://diaryreviews.diaryland.com/missedith.html. That is all.
from tobehis :
Jesus loves you!
from animamea :
i agree with your review refering to the ents. such magnificent creatures in the book and they were really not done justice in the movie.
from penisface :
I like what you write, but sometimes it's so long I just give up. This is my problem and not yours--so keep doing what you're doing.
from kstarr :
your layout is nice to my eyes. hotdamn.
from shawster :

from of-her-soul :
The Pixies are awesome. Your Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) Banner brought me to your diary, xo.
from anavi :
I too agree that Lord of the Rings:The Two Towers was way better than the first. Just awesome. I like to hear other people's opinions. I'd like to see your review of it. =)
from baconboy42 :
A buckeye is a little ball of peanut butter flavored goodness dipped in semi-sweet chocolate and served only around Christmastime. They're named such because they look like the buckeyes on the trees. Plus, they're so damn rich, you can only eat about 5-10 at a time. My friend's record is 25, before puking. Mmmmmm. Thanks for the note.

from ninionized :

from jewelsiren :
hi, i bannered over here. couldn't help but notice the buffy quote on the banner, you know. you're a fun read. i like fun reads.
from potumn :
Bannered my way here. You have a great layout & a fun read. I'll be back for more later...
from goovie :

miss edith, up here in the great white north it is cold and I feel your pain. I hate hot weather, I hate Cold weather, I just like Southern California weather. I'll move there soon, wait and see.
from stumblebee :
hi, came across your diary from ryan8-5cut, and I think you're great!
from ursaminor2 :
I am sorry.....I wish I could fix it for you. Maybe it is enough to know I, and many others feel the same. You are not an idiot.
from ursaminor2 :
Just dropped by. been there with the family thing. I am 29 and can't seem to keep from regressing around the folks. Just means they dont know who you are and you aren't sure you want them to. I think though when you are more secure in yourself and are SURE beyond a doubt that YOU ROCK, and they can fuck off for all you care, you will find it easier.
from ryan8-5cut :
That's troubledteen I don't know what's wrong wiht my typer today!
from ryan8-5cut :
Edith You totally have to read trouble Tenns diary. Her entry about her AWESOME POETRY, is awesome. Pure gold.
from ryan8-5cut :
HOLA Sra. Edith! I love you! Now I can keep up with you and your life!
from squirrelx :
You're a fellow reader! Thanks for tellin' me so, Miss Edith. Now I'll know there's at least one person out there who's not bored into a complete coma when I start talkin' about Tarot. I don't mean to pry, but I was wonderin' which decks you use most often. Best, Xtine / Squirrel
from kittykat25 :
r u a buffy fan????
from squirrelx :
THANK YOU for signin' my guestbook and addin' me to your list of fave raves --- and leavin' your URL so that I could visit YOUR diary, which I am enjoyin' very much. There's no more room for buddies in my D-land profile, so I've put a link to you on the additional 'favorites' I created. Please travel safely and have a wonderful Thanksgivin'! Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from weezer1d :
travel safely miss e!
from monkieygirl :
my hubby is an anime freak-he made me bid on ebay for him once when he was at work to get the Neon series from Japan befor eit was on DVD here-he said don't go over $200. too much. The best part is the anime convention every year here in Dallas. I go the last night so I can see all the freaks in costumes getting drunk, having geek sex, and making freaky babies.
from wifemotherme :
Just surfed on somehow. Intresting read. I am sorry you lost your money.
from monkieygirl :
hey girl, go and check your diaryland email-you were at the HEB at 35 near the school weren't you? That HEB is always busy-I was so grateful that we lived across the street from the co-op. Don't worry it is to warm back up by Friday-ah Texas. Try reading Elizabeth George she is some fun mystery stuff, just don't buy it at the evil Border's.
from devilspawn :
Oh god not the hair not the HAIR!!! To be honest that is one of my biggest icky disgusting things that I hate to deal with. Bleurgh.
from ophelialetgo :
buffy + moon + you = me. You are love, and I am yours.
from ninionized :
i spend many a hour thinking about the Buffyverse...so many mysteries... hmmm...the timezone thing is interesting...i never really thought about it before. whenever they show it dark in Sunny-D, its dark someplace too...but with exception of this past episode, after the opening credits, we saw England and it was day there...and when we went back Sunnydale...it was still night. back to the England...was the lady on the floor of that guy's place...was she the one who was killed in Istanbul?
from weezer1d :
you are such a sweetie! may your bathroom yield fruitful adventures. have a good weekend! --da weez
from monkieygirl :
Okay, I have decided that you are my twin-cleaning freak, cook, Texasn. Now the question is which one of us is the evil one? What the hell were diong at trendy Trudys?
from ninionized :
hmmm...you raise many a interesting point with this weeks buffy. i thought the episode was cool but i was shocked at the end...i didn't like seeing an axe going for Giles' head. i like Giles, he's a pretty cool guy. Spike recently has been interesting especially last week when we never saw him speak, and this week kinda continued that silence...it shows that even without speaking, Spike is a powerful presence...i like it. as for the girls being off in other countries...i've never really thought they were other slayers that were being killed before being called into duty. it's an interesting thought. but the girl in germany, the pink haired girl...did she really die or was she only a product of buffy's dream from the 2nd episode of this season?
from ninionized :
ah, i getcha now. i'm a shipper for them as well. i just can't picture Spike with anyone other than Dru...they just fit so well together. i like them both so much that i have a bunch of pics, sounds and wallpapers of them on my comp. i made postcards of them for my site...i guess friends of mine would say i'm kinda all dru-spike crazy...but i really don't care hehe.

from goovie :
i agree with all your buffy thoughts but one: giles is *mine*. mineminemine. that is all. :)
from pazzobello :
Hi - I just came across your page, using your banner. And I have to tell you that I totally agree about the lack of Giles on Buffy. I mean, how can they not have a watcher around? That's just wrong. Giles rocks. The Spike thing too - definately better when he's bad. Ciao-Pazzobello
from snailpetal :
Very nice, sweetness...please feel free to drop by my page, act as if it's your mum's house, nick things, eat the biscuits, annoy people and then go...just go... ;) bon appetit!
from ninionized :
hehe cool...i caught the reference. i've seen this word 'shipper' around on a few sites. what exactly does that mean? i think i'll keep a look out for that banner. on my page, i have a kinda hidden buffy reference. i've wondered if anyone has spotted it before hehe. hehe yup i got that other too.
from laura-ann :
i am constantly admused by your diary and i don't know why. keep updating. i like reading it. :) - laura ann
from weezer1d :
re buffy: if buffy offed the evil spike, is the surviving spike good, insane or billy idol? and WHO is the mysterious entity constantly fucking with our faithful slayer? anyone? anyone?
from fcprincesse :
I love your new template!
from monkieygirl :
Hey cow town! I will so be in Big D on Xmas Day! We come back the night of the 24th. We are so going to hook up, and I must ply you with alkehall for the compliments to my daughter...flattery gets you everywhere
from ninionized :
i can only imagine how many times you may have been asked this: but...your name...miss edith. is that buffy inspired? cuz Drusilla's favorite doll was named that. if yes...thats interesting cuz on my page is a pic of Dru & Spike.
from monkieygirl :
ICE, Ice Baby-stolen riff from David Bowie and Queen. That damn song is stuck in my head! are you going to be in A town during XMas? I thought I might be stalking Shakespeares about that time.
from tremolis :
Hi! I clicked on the banner for your diary and I love it! Only thing is, I (like many diarylanders) HATE diaryland templates. Go out there and get yourself a cool one! Beautify.diaryland.com has tons of free designers. LisDesigns is my personal favorite. Keep up the good work!
from fcprincesse :
I think your computer may be related to my computer. maybe we should set them up on a date and see if they'll start behaving...
from weezer1d :
you are very popular. think banners do that to people. but seriously, are you me? loved the homerism. shall return
from gbg :
::glances idly at banner above whatever she was looking at:: ::sees Drusilla quote:: ::falls out of chair:: In short? YOU ROCK. That is all. Have a nice day.
from sampsman :
Miss Edith, I too, can't stand people who think Jeff Buckley wrote the song Hallelujah. I enjoy both versions, but I give Cohen the slight edge because he did write it. But neither version is my favorite from that particular artist. Favorite Buckley Song: "Dream Lover" . . .. Favorite Cohen Song: "so Long Marianne." Favorite John Cale song: "Hallelujah" There you have it.
from chauffi :
Miss Edith, I may love you. You have amazing taste.
from monkieygirl :
Fine, don't respond to my email. Then you go and brag abuot morning sex. I hope you get kids that come into your room in the middle of all the action and ask, "Whatcha doin ?"
from mymichele :
I liked your banner, yes I did. And also, I can't stop buying books either. It's an obsession, and perhaps a sickness.
from goovie :
i *heart* your banner ad. i was gonna be drusilla this year for halloween. and word upon word to bring it on and psycho beach party. i miss having cable. but anyway, i'm really enjoying your diary. i'll definitely be back. :)
from monkieygirl :
No, I ment the magazine, yes the novel. Did you see the A&E adaption? If you buy books, do not buy them at the evil Border's at Research and 183. They are EEEEVVVVEEEELLLL! We should know, my hubby and I worked for them for over two years. If you drive buy, flip then off for me. Go to Spider House while you are at it, and enjot some coffee for me. Go do my bidding.
from candora :
you ramble almost as much as I do (my diaryland diary is as brief as I've ever gotten in a diary, as my website journal might prove)... keep on :)
from cheshyr :
Hey, thanks for the note but what is RAW?
from opensecret :
Left.
from monkieygirl :
Oh man, Vanity Fair was such a dissapointment for me. Did you see that Reese Witherspoon is making it a movie again?
from monkieygirl :
Don't you just love living in Texas, it is in the mid 70's here in Dallas. I started to laugh out loud when I read about the cars floating down Lamar. I just get this image of people hanging out Book People just wathing abunch of Buicks go by. I know that is not logistically possible, but I thought that it was funny anyways. good stuff. Maybe I will stalk you when I am down to Austin to see the in-laws in December.
from starxlover20 :
Can't say I agree on the whole voting thing. At all.
from sikasfang :
i really agree with you on the euthanizing of innocent and healthy little aminals like its just throwing away some old junk you have no use for anymore....so sad...='(
from abwhite :
You know, there are more than two parties. Most of them have no interest in munching on your limbs.
from meowpony :
Hey! I came upon your diary when I saw your banner atop the page, which mentioned 'Miss edith'. Being a buff-junkie I had to read your entrys. Thats when I found that you also like Neopets. SO much in common im wondering if maybe this is my secret diary?
from gawaine :
I agree! sex during the day: yes! sex = time to go to bed (night), no. Bed is for sleeping. Sure it's a soft surface, but then so is the couch, my floor, weight bench, etc etc.
