I have finally unlocked my diary. If my ex wants to read my business, let him.
from captvfirefly :
You're back! If you're giving out passwords, would you mind giving it to me? I hope all is well. :)
from dulligirl :
I need my mommylap access! And, by the way, are you on Facebook?
from rdhdprincess :
Hey babycakes! It's nice to see you again! It's asking me for a password though. May I have, please?
from artgnome :
If it is not too private, I would love your password. :) xo

“The unexamined life is not worth living” -Socrates Well put. Hope you keep writing.
from dinosaurorgy :
You so totally DO look in your 20's.. at least from the pair of photos I saw, anyway.
from artgnome :
yes, I wish you lived close and could hang out with us as well. I think you and I would be very good friends if that was the case. Still, I like your neck of the woods and hope to visit you someday when I am financially able to do so. I really liked Duluth when I was out there.
from dandydandy :
Yes, the clean, I should have explained. My house is more clean than it has been in probably six months or more. No job and no school equals very clean house! Who knew? You have all the positive vibes, shakes and moves I can possibly muster for your job wish!
from devian :
i agree--myspace is ok for shameless self-promotion, but not for diary-ing. it became all about "numbers" and not about connecting...glad you stayed here and you will become the FIRST favorite diary i add back!!!!!!!!!!! love, dev
from dandydandy :
I don't care about having all my music on my ipod either. My listening pleasure is never very diverse at any one time. I tend to listen to music I like obsessively until I tire of it and then move on to something else. My kids hate that about me. Funny you should mention the car adapter thingy because I was, just an hour ago, looking at them at the grocery store. That would really make the ipodlove so much bigger and better.
from dandydandy :
I meant measly in relative terms. For Olivia, 2g is measly. For me, it's the universe.
from dandydandy :
It will be a manifuckingfesto revolution!
from dulligirl :
The chaise is tres cool. It is kinda creamy color with little blocks of brown on it. It's so damn comfy that I can take a nap in it. In my opinion, it is worthy of at least some good necking. Though I'd rather do the necking with Jim. Anyway, the Tudors...and Velvet Goldmine. Love'em. The soundtrack to the latter is so great. Glam rock!
from dulligirl :
I have a mole on my jawline and I have to constantly patrol for a hair growing out of it. I can't wait to get it removed. I had one mole removed 7 years ago that used to be right next to my mouth. Started off more freckle sized but grew and grew as I got older till it was just GROSS!! Anyway...thanks for the comment and the compliment. Your tastes rock as well.
from plopphizz :
Elle,
from plopphizz :
Elle, I am bringing Plop Blog back. I need your support...you were always the soul of the group, let me be the mind and see if wes and steph will be the heart again. What do you think? -- Plops
from media1001 :
FYI, I just got an email from our favorite DJ. I wonder if he is back into blogging? -- M1001
from media1001 :
I put this as a comment to your comment, but wanted to make sure it got to you: have you seen the new Coen Brothers film "No Country For Old Men" yet? I hear it is really good. -- M1001
from dulligirl :
And once again, I say thank you. I really would love to see Sweeney Todd. And why don't you move down here so we can hang out?!
from dulligirl :
Thank you! :)
from media1001 :
Okay, seriously. Where the heck are you? I am starting to get concerned. Drop me a note, Elle. Thanks -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Hey, I wanted to make sure you saw my review on "The 13 Clocks". If your daughters are young enough to still enjoy a book being read aloud, this is the book you should try to find for them and you. I think you would get a real kick out of the clever wordplay and writing in it. The link is http://media1001.diaryland.com/book_0466.html. -- Ploppy.
from plopphizz :
Hey elle, wassup? You ahven't been blog lady much. (not that I have either) How are you? -- Ploppy.
from plopphizz :
Oh yeah, I think that is a bug. He gave me a password to see read archives many, many months ago, and I haven't seen any new entries there for a long long time. -- Ploppy.
from plopphizz :
What did you mean by "The last entry he did was locked..."? I don't see any locked entries. I got word indirectly from rabbit that he is doing okay, just doesn't have access to a computer. You know, that and his personality...the usual reasons...
from plopphizz :
I was looking through my old entries today and realized that it was exactly one year ago today when we were chatting with Bony doing his radio show and he decidated that song to us. Check it out: http://plopphizz.diaryland.com/bonyshow.html Time went by really quickly.
from media1001 :
Elle, if you want a good coffee house book, or house house book, try The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. I think, knowing you as well as I do, that you will love it. I am giving it a five star as soon as I catchup my writing backlog (I am about 12 books adn 12 movies behind right now). Anyway, check your libray for it...read it...love it...tell me about it, trust me, it is you. -- Ploppy
from media1001 :
Hey, I just finished watching "Swimming To Cambodia". That was really good! It definitely adds a whole different layer to watching "The Killing Fields". -- Ploppy.
from dulligirl :
First off, thanks for your comment today. And secondly, about your idea for a music related diary site...sounds interesting. I'm up for it. And can you tell me why the hell bonypony hasn't updated lately? Does he have another blog somewhere?
from dulligirl :
I am still smiling about last night even with the flubbing of actually playing the guitar. Evan was so damn cool. Hey, when are you going to update,lap?!!
from media1001 :
Oh yeah, and I wanted to let you know that Watchmen made it into the 1001 book. I think it is the only graphic novel in there. Anyway, it is in my queue. Just finished reading it for the fourth or fifth time, what an incredibly detailed and complex story it is. I guess the movie is in pre-production, slotted for 2008, according to IMDB. -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Hey Elle, just popping by to say hello. I guess you are just in read and comment mode these days. Haven't seen an entry for a while :) -- Ploppy.
from themark :
I share your concerns re: Galactus. Perhaps a real voice alone, to lend the proper gravitas, is all that's needed? Like a Peter O'Toole type? I dunno. The Surfer sure does look good in the trailer, though. I never listened to Disco's take on Superman Returns because I didn't want him to bias me before I saw it. Then I saw it, didn't like it so much, and forgot to go back and relisten to that episode of FINL. Oops. I bet it was funny...
from themark :
lap! Remember when I said they should just chuck the idea of a straight F4 sequel and make a Silver Surfer/Galactus movie? Well check this out: <a href="http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/fantasticfourriseofthesilversurfer/">Rise of the Silver Surfer</a>
from media1001 :
I think Ellis whole style is "not compelling"...his characters, and the lives they lead, are completely void of any interest or character -- the excesses in which they are immersed completely wash them out. On a completely unrelated, but nonetheless interesting note: isn't it strange that Christian Bale played Bateman, and then he played Batman? I'm just saying... -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Oh yeah, the whole "child zombie" idea is creepy in and of itself, but to have a child zombie eating her mother...well, that's just icky-poo! -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Elle, which scene in "Night of the Living Dead" are you referring to? Sorry I got to this so late, we have been without power for five days ... totally sucked :(. -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Have you watched The Evil Dead Trilogy? Best, if you haven't, that might be the next horror movie film set to check out, particularly Evil Dead II. If not that, then "Night of the Living Dead" (the original, of course) I just watched it the other night and it was awesome! -- Ploppy.
from themark :
I'm perfectly happy being a kettle. I also enjoy casting stones in glass houses. Or something... (Did I just mix a couple of metaphors?) Anyway, no time to update--I must read your new post! :-)
from dulligirl :
lap, I think you hit the problem right on the head. I am starting to PMS and the alcohol combined with disappointment is probably what happened to me last night. And yes,I plan on channeling this into my writing. Nothing like some angst to inspire one.
from dulligirl :
That's a great suggestion for the outfit. I really need to make the best out of that skirt. I have black tights that will look great with it. You really really need to live near me, or I near you. Definitely would be a fearsome dynamic duo.
from media1001 :
The casting of Gaslight is great, although I would guess that you will find the plot a bit predictable and simple-minded like I did. And, yes, "Laura" is in the movie 1001 book :). Where have you been, BTW? Not commenting-wise -- obviously, because you always leave great comments -- but entry-wise? You taking a blog break? -- Ploppy. -- Ploppy.
from dulligirl :
Oh and I meant to say that your comment about Alanis in Dogma was funny because somebody else mentioned that to me on Wednesday night. She said she'd translate for me since I probably shouldn't talk. Hee.
from dulligirl :
You rock,lap! Thanks for that suggestion about the shrug. I'm going to borrow my sister's black shawl but if that doesn't go well, I'm going to go the fake shrug route. What are you going to be for Halloween?!
from dandydandy :
I very much want to know how to use a table saw! Any kind of saw, really. My Dad said that if I move to his town he'll teach me how to use his. I'm not sure if that is a bribe or what, but it doesn't help much. I would love to make roman shades with you. Having another person to do it with would give me motivation. The making of the shades is easy, it's the mess and the cutting and the kids really. And you are right about drapes and heat loss. My aunt used to make roman shades with that insulating stuff as the liner--it made the shades bulky, but it was pretty cool. I think she even put magnets on them so they'd stay tight to the window. Anyway, it certainly wasn't more comment than I needed. Really, a lot more Tawanda type sisterhood is what I need.
from captvfirefly :
Drama intuit, eh? I think you're definitely onto something there about Steve. He's the guy who says he doesn't like drama, but he puts himself into situations that perpetuate it. Ugh. So, I totally agree with your wise statement. :)
from dulligirl :
I am SOOOO happy that Jeffrey won! That totally made my week. Who knew I would be rooting for a guy that could frustrate me so much with his attitude but never bored me with his fashion. Even when I didn't care for something, I could still see him being creative. His shock when he won was just adorable as was when he was carrying around his boy. I was so surprised at Michael's misstep in his line. Laura's line was definitely pretty but nothing new. Uli's came close to winning for good reason, which totally surprised me. But I'm so happy it went to Jeffrey because he really DID show innovation and had pieces that weren't wayyy out there but still really cool.
from akkelly :
Now I'm confused. Are you saying that you Do Not want the girls chasing boys on the playground?? If that's the correct interpretation....WHY? Some of my best memories were of terrorizing the boys on the playground. ;)
from meine-kleine :
A Tale of Two Cities: Book The Fourth. Dear God.
from meine-kleine :
That China set is gorgeous, and the way it's stacked immediately makes me think THAT IS SO CAKE INSPIRATION. Because that's all I think in terms of now, anymore. And I'm gonna try to answer all the questions now... without giving away how giddy I am someone asked them. Foof foof foof! Alrighty... my favorite medium for scultping is GUM PASTE. This isn't a frequent favorite among most cake decorators except for flowers because it dries so hard and sometimes cracks and takes ages to harden all the way through in thicker pieces, but I've really learned to mess with it so it does my bidding (See: The Bender, except I smudged royal on him so IGNORE THAT FLAW PLEASE). However, the baby mouse for example, was made of fondant so it could be munched on, as gumpaste is like a jawbreaker. Now my fondant is marshmallow fondant because normal fondant tastes gross. That's softer than normal fondant so it's harder to sculpt with it-- I only use it for figures that need no support. I don't use marzipan OR chocolate clay... chocolate clay is expensive to make in the long run (and it doesn't keep as well to me-- fondant and gumpaste are for EVER) and marzipan gets greasy when overworked, and I mess with my figures so much I don't even want to risk that. Lately I've started using a 50/50 gumpaste/fondant mix for figurines because it doesn't dry as quickly but it actually DRIES and it doesn't droop like plain fondant. The orca's body is made of cake. I basically made the normal-shaped cake, took cake scraps and smashed them together until they looked right, iced and covered THAT in fondant, and then made the waves and fins out of fondant too. The fin, since it IS fondant, is supported with a wire structure I made beforehand-- you can see it in the pictures, as I put them down the middle of the fin to ensure that if they came through it'd look like a crease in the middle instead of me being a retard and having wires show. I really really love having someone ask about this stuff, because I get to explain the love I put into it. My cakes are nowhere near perfect or contest-level but I've really been trying to push the limits of what I do so I can learn, i.e. not letting myself use molds for figurines so I can manipulate fondant and gumpaste with my bare hands and not need help. There's a really intricate cake I've been wanting to make, and really dedicate several days to a week to. It's halloween themed and I didn't know if I should but now I've seen a halloween cake contest on my favorite cake website and I want to send in my photo soooo badly of that cake! I'm just worried about putting in a week's worth of work and getting shot down. Plus I know I'm gonna have some issues with it so I'll need a veritable army of support drones telling me I can do it. JOIN USSSS, hahaha.
from dulligirl :
Thanks for those comments! I had such a fun time while realizing at the same time that if I let myself get down about it all, I could totally feel the opposite way. Matt is only 28 and Marcia is 20 and I love hanging with people younger than me so it isn't their ages necessarily. But it's that I've been there done that for some of these things. I'm actually kind of looking forward to seeing him next week. Heh.
from dandydandy :
I think only you could make me feel okay about losing an entry. And thanks for the Wordpad tip! Word corrects html, notepad is just annoying, but Wordpad! Ah-ha!
from dulligirl :
I remember when I first watched Pulp Fiction. Blown away is an understatement. I know I saw it maybe 2 or 3 times in the theatre. And my friends and I have always quoted it. At least my friend, the one who sent me that crappy email a month or so ago, was one I could always do lines of dialogue with. Now..I don't think I have anybody around who can do that. Except,strangely enough, my boss.
from dulligirl :
Ahhh..that must've been so cool! When I took my friend Julie with me to see X, I kept telling her how much I adored John Doe. She saw him come out on the stage and didn't quite get it. But halfway through the show, she leaned over and said "I can really see why you like him so much". It's that attitude, smile and charisma. Oh, and the voice! He's still my image that I have on my cellphone for the wallpaper from when I met him last December.
from dulligirl :
I am still awake! Anyway, you should definitely dance like you mean it the next time you go out. There's something about the dance floor that completely lets loose any inhibitions I have. I'm like that at most concerts too. When I saw X a couple weeks ago, the people around me had to back away because I was basically a mosh pit of one.
from dulligirl :
I went to look at Malan's line and yes, they look very elegant. They totally should've brought him back tonight NOT yucky Vincent and Angela. Why,why,why?! I was so happy to get rid of Vincent last week and they bring him back this week? Stupid producers. I think Jeffrey needs to step it up. That outfit almost got him booted. But I did love Laura's dress and am glad she won.
from dulligirl :
You are so good for my ego,lap. Thanks for the nice comment. I was working at the record store when that Posies cd came out and just listened to it ALL the time. I love that cd!
from dulligirl :
Yo! I just pasted in my cd review into the entry I just wrote. Enjoy!
from akkelly :
A whole bottle of wine will be fine, as long as three of us are drinking it. Apparently, even though I drink nightly, I can't have any more than two without a hangover. Sheesh. Let's get something on the books!! How about a Thursday night? Or a Tuesday? Aw, hell, as long as it's not a weekend, I'm free any night!

from plopphizz :
Elle, I have always looked to you for advice in this strange land. I feel unfocused and much like a bum who is stumbling (stumblebumming?). Should I hit the Plop blog briefly with funny stuff, or keep a focus on media, or what? Bony's continued absence has punctured my funness bubble. You going to be on gmail this weekend? (long weekend), we need to talk. Much candied kisses thrust upon you. -- Ploppy.
from plopphizz :
Do you like the movie though? i finished watching Butch and Sundance last night. Good movie :). Should have the write up done this week. -- Ploppy.
from dulligirl :
Yes, that's what I'm doing right now. I am fornicating with Greg Dulli. 24/7. He won't leave me alone!
from media1001 :
We can discuss whatever you are interested in. The nice thing about the site right now is there are very few readers and I can spend more time discussing stuff in the comments. It reminds me of the old Plopphizz days when you were me only steady commenter, heh. -- Ploppy.
from artgnome :
i'm loving the balloons...and your friendship. keep it coming. :)
from media1001 :
This is so funny, it is just like old times when you were my only commenter :). Thanks for always being a greater commenter, BTW. -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Hey elle, I didn't realize that you had left messages for media1001 until just recently. My haloscan email notification wasn't set up properly. Anyway, thanks for the comments, I am going back now to respond. How have you been, BTW, I feel like we haven't touched base with each other in forever. -- Ploppy.
from kristintracy :
i like how we're messaging each other via every possible portal. *DING!*
from dulligirl :
I LOVED Bradley Cooper in "Kitchen Confidential"! That show should've been on HBO cause I don't think FOX knew what to do with it. I had not yet heard about Benjamin Henrickson dying. That's so sad! Nobody else can be Hal but him.
from dandydandy :
I would have, at the very least, hopped up on the hood of the car, but it's all curves and definitely no easy way to climb up on to the roof. Probably too someone would feel inclined to yell out to me, "Careful of that climbing up there on the roof of that car!" Heh.
from dulligirl :
Thanks for the congrats! I'm so excited!
from tiaris :
Hi! Saw your comment over at the lovely Firefly's place. I will be the rent there is NOTHING in your profile that is remotely encouraging when it comes to the messages you mentioned. The only way to slow messages like that, I've found, is to put friends and networking only in your "here for." I stupidly unchecked everything, thinking that would make me unsearchable, and they started picking up again, but not like when I had "dating" listed in "here for." Just saying. I think they run searches for "dating," and if you have that, they think it means "sliming."
from artgnome :
that's so funny, because I thought it was the most dull and boring entry for others to have to read. email me anytime you like.
from dulligirl :
Thanks for those quite flattering and encouraging words!
from dulligirl :
I absolutely LOVE that you put "As the World Turns" on your favorites list. I stopped watching a long time back when they had Jack lose his memory. I was fed up! Fed up,I say. Then, my mom was telling me last week that they'd brought back Simon and Damian, two of my favorite men with accents. So now I'm dvr'ing it again.
from themark :
You bet I do, and they'd better give it to us! Or else we'll storm the gates of 20th Century Fox and demand a remake! (By the way, you may recall I'd earlier poo-pooed Kelsey Grammer as the choice for Beast, but after seeing him in the ads I'm taking it back. He's perfect!) Anyway, I look forward to hearing your review of the film next week...
from smedindy :
You know why? They haven't asked ME! Or us! I bet we could write 'em a good tune or two!
from dandydandy :
That's the funny thing about this x365 blogging thingamabob. I don't really miss Sarah. But, taking the time to write about her, made me miss her in that moment.
from nprmommy :
thanks for the note! smed and i go back to a diary i used to write, but i keep forgetting to add him as a favorite on the new one....
from plopphizz :
Where are you and why isn't your prety face on your profile? Where are you comments for me? I miss you :(. Where are you? -- Ploppy.
from beulahbondo :
Happy mother's day!! --Beulah
from plopphizz :
Congrats, you have been Quoted: http://quoted.diaryland.com/myparty.html. Thanks for the great writing. -- Ploppy.
from dandydandy :
I feel like I have to apologize for obsessively reading your diary these wee early morning hours. It is your fault though, seeing as how you launched the obsessive reading with those links. And while I feel somewhat of a rubberneck, I'm mostly awed by your raw honesty and clever mind.
from plopphizz :
Elle, where are you? -- Ploppy.
from dandydandy :
Ha! Just saw your George comment. You know you are totally getting tagged with this meme for that. My main motivation for doing this meme? Is to tag others with more creative thoughts. Because I am totally lame.
from dandydandy :
I had no idea that the entry was deleted. I guess I should have checked when I linked to you. But really, I'm glad I didn't. I do understand Lap, I'm just sorry I didn't say so earlier. (And I didn't because of some introverted crap I tend to carry around.) Hope you have a toasty warm weekend.
from plopphizz :
Crap, I missed you on google talk. I was at work anyway. I will try again earlier in the evening when I get home, or this next weekend. See you on the flip side, Elle. -- Ploppy.
from dandydandy :
Well, if you ask me, bitter matters not. I totally agree: Not worth the effort.
from plopphizz :
Just stopping by to say hello. My presence here recently has been dismal, at best. I think I am in the "binge" portion of my creative "binge and purge" cycle, but soon I should be hurling my ideas all over my site again. Oh, wanted to make sure you knew that I put links to my movies on my latest entry, to make sure that you didn't have to use Internet Explore to see them. You can download them and view them in Windows Media Player. Let me know what you think. -- Ploppy.
from dandydandy :
Eh, vapor rub parties are not all that they are cracked up to be. I hope everyone is feeling better very soon. Sam drank some hot lemonade this morning, but unfortunately it came back to haunt him. Ah well. Hope it lessened the pain in your house!
from sixelasauce :
gosh, I have never actually read someone that has been through what I have been through. It is so great to read someone that has. I really hope to get the chance to talk to you and share some experiences. Birth mother to birth mother. Mine was in 2000, but it is not in my diary. (still to raw) Hope to hear from you soon! Lex
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle. What's up? When are you going to start writing again? -- P.P.
from dandydandy :
Thanks a lot for your comment. I don't have any friends that are single moms & thus have no idea if what I'm experiencing/feeling/blathering on about makes any sense to anyone but myself. Actually, I don't know anything at the moment; brain is frozen or something. But, that's besides the point that I really appreciated your comment!
from dandydandy :
Thanks for the note! Yea, I added you to my buddy list a couple weeks ago. I probably should have left you a note or said hi or something. Somehow I always feel like that's asking for attention--like: hey, you're on my buddy list. Look over here at me!! I added you! Anyway, yes, I've spent a lot of time reading your archives and it's the perfect combo of hysterical, thought provoking and deeply moving.
from plopphizz :
Sorry you are down. I feel kinda blah lately, too. Maybe its the weather or the holidays or something. Who knows? Drop me an email and let me know how things are going. -- P.P.
from beulahbondo :
Hi! I found you via the Ghosty/Westy/Galaxy pipeline, and I think I found all of them through my friend KittyBukkake. Love your diary; it's salty and sassy. And you're the third or fourth person to confirm to me that Minneapolis must be a pretty cool place.
from plopphizz :
I think i was leaving to many notes last night, because several of them make no sense, including this last one, sorry. I was trying to get ahold of you on gtalk last night and find out if you had any other DL'ers on the line. You know, people like saru-san and ghosty and sera and such. Did any of them ever join your gtalk chat line? -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
So anyway, I want a line between friends, I am on your gmail line, come join me and we can exapand from there..
from plopphizz :
You need to check on dandydandy. I totally think you will love her. her writing is great. please dont dump me for her. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
So you were doing a Mary Ann switcheroo? Hey, I have to ask you. Since you got my "away from home" entry, does my "calling you on the mary ann" thing make us even? Thats pretty good internet kudo points both ways, right?
from plopphizz :
hey, this is a response to your comment on saru-san's entry about Mary Ann. "Innocent, brunette, pigtails..what's not obvious about that act?" I seem to recall another brunette posting innocent looking photos in pigtails fairly recently on her blog. So where does that put you on the Mary Ann scale, my dear? -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Thanks for your comment on the newest entry. I always feel like I am running a risk writing serious stuff, but this whole week has felt so "off", I just had to get it written down. I'm use to having pretty basic emotions that are easy to articulate and write about. It's when I have conflicting ideas and emotions that I get locked up and have difficulty expressing it. Or maybe i just went too long without writing and it is all spurting out now. Anyway, I felt the safest bet was to describe the things to were causing the off feelings and hope the general themes revealed themselves. Now if you will excuse me, I have to go fill up your last entries with comments. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
What the heck you at. I mean here. I see you on the comments, which is great, but what's going on in your life? FYI, I am starting up a new episode of Pizza Phriend today, mostly because you mentioned you would love to see him again. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
I'm guessing you must be updating only on the diary-x diary? What's the url of it again? -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
You will get a kick out of this. The comments SPAM filter doesn't like the word "pharmacy"...obviously because of all the spam related to getting prescription for cheap prices. Just don't include that word and you can comment just fine. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Yeah right, like I would ever ban my best commenter ever, heh. Try putting in the comment again and if it still doesn't work, email the comment and I will troubleshoot it to see what is causing the problem. I have a feeling it has to do with the beefed up security Andrew put in the comments system. There might be some specific text you included that is tripping the system and if I can get a copy of the text I can figure out the problem. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Ugh, I am so far freaking far behind on reading diaries, I decided I would just hit your notes instead of comments. How are you doing? The big list on quoted has been taking most of my time, so I hopefully will be back to my usual annoyances soon enough. -- P.P.
from akkelly :
Oh, Girly!! TJMaxx! Home to the $19.99 cashmere sweater. (Ok. I bought it about two months ago, but still.) Around Christmas you can still manage to find them for about $50 (still more than I'm normally willing to pay), but if you're diligent after Christmas, you can get them on clearance. I am Nothing if not a bargain shopper. ;)
from smedindy :
Yo! Tonight, I'm going to email you my laundry list of other band names (ones that I tossed around besides Paint With Water). Some of them are a hoot and a half. Some take some 'splaining.
from mom-on-roof :
The chicken fettuccine looks delish! I saw that and ran outside to my tomato plants and picked some little grape tomatoes in the dark. I'm eating them like candy. Closest thing I have to chicken fettuccine with all the lovely colors!
from smedindy :
Thanks for adding me! If you read further, "Kristin Comes Alive" is the story of the birth of my second adopted daughter. I have a backstory on both Katie's and Kristin's birth (same birth mother) that is incredible. Take care! Peace!
from im2evil4u :
It has been a long time, but do you still have Chicknamedal's email? I miss her terribly. Anything?

thanks for giving me props on the new book cover. i like that the image "looks" like a lake when it's actually just a picture of some trees in San Diego on my old street. the bf took the picture during our firestorm a couple years ago (remember all those BLOOD SUN pictures i posted???) i found the pic and was inspired. :)
from djsmitty :
You are verry special, and you may call me whatever you want. Except "johnny" which is reserved for my elder. unless you want to. :)
from meine-kleine :
Haha! Awww. See, I was just kidding around. Have a hug.
from meine-kleine :
I am so hurt by not being linked. So hurt I could die. CRY. cry, cry. (I'm joking. LOVE!)
from sheisdancing :
i was all set to write a note, and then holycrap, that picture again. gufffffawwwwwwwwwww. i was going to say: you are a parachuting frog-POOF! and yeah, did you recognize chunk from the goonies?
from hubbabub :
Sorry to hear of the wallet fiasco. That suuucks. Hang in there!
from serapay :
so, guess who put a little bitty general comments thingy in their diary, just for you? me, that's who, duh. sorry, i don't want one for every separate entry right now, but hey. this is progress, yes? :)
from meine-kleine :
Dear Lap: Abso-friggin'-lutely.
from serapay :
did you know that picture on your profile page is so darned funny, every time i see it i almost pee my pants. just sayings all.
from hubbabub :
Thanks! Also, you need to go back and answer my question in my comments. Please.
from hubbabub :
"ramification"...heh. Totally. Also the rest of what you wrote got cut off making me appear MYSTERIOUS. I love it.
from onewetleg :
oh, yeah, some of those make good wallpaper. feel free to use them. for wallpaper. thanks for your lovely comment. love, jj
from onewetleg :
you want more drains? looka heah: http://photobucket.com/albums/v438/onewetleg/050805/ that should hold ya for a minute or two. :)
from onewetleg :
the shoe on the wall made me very happy. so did your comment. thanks, lap.
from mom-on-roof :
Thank you so mUch, Ms. Mommylap, you have put a skip in my step today with your generous comments! it's always exciting when someone "gets" me.
from plopphizz :
You can sign each and every one of your comments with "Elle". I didn't bestow that title upon you, I merely drew out what was already there. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle, I wanted to let you know first since you have been such a great friend and supporter of mine here: I am coming up on a year of writing Plop Phizz (in April) and will be stopping my writing here very soon. And no, there's no crisis or bad things occurring or anything like that. I had a great time here and now it's time to move onto other creative things in my life. It was pretty much my plan all along, but the problems with the site and not having enough time to write recently is making the decision come a bit sooner than I thought it originally would. Feel free to email me at plopphizz@diaryland.com if you want to discuss more. -- P.P.
from serapay :
thank you so much for the lovely comments. you're so right. i'm just so tired. of all this. of running. i need a plan. comments like yours really do help, though.
from andreeb :
Lion Brand -- love that yarn. I am just learning how to read patterns. Actually, I'm just learning all the different stitches!
from beautifulwoe :
I got Maroon 5 tickets because there was a minute possiblity that Phantom Planet was opening on the Civic Tour, but I just found out it's The Donnas instead. I like The Donnas, but PP would have rocked my world.
from hubbabub :
Thanks so much for the sweet comments, LAP. You're a doll. Hope you're having a good weekend!
from comma-abuse :
I call them that as a proper name as well, considering that they are German in Germany and that is just how you do it there. I've called them that all my life, though, since German's my first language. Way back when I lived with them, see. Calling them grandma or grandpa would just feel weird.
from im2evil4u :
You right, you right (about the pic). Doing 60 in a 45 to boot! :D
from comma-abuse :
Aw, thank you, lap. I love my mother so much it hurts, but I think lately she's been going a bit crazy. It also is a little hurty when she scowls at me all day and then beams the instant her boyfriend walks in. I thought maybe I WAS being a rebellious child until I went back to Germany and my grandmother told me that my being annoyed by her sometimes is totally justified and that she's a "difficult person." I'm worried I'm a difficult person as well, but I don't know. The Mother also has this great thing going where she doesn't realize that I'm not 5 years old anymore, and more than halfway. That is, she'll let me clean the entire house and be responsible for pretty much everything while she's working long hours, but the thought of my leaving still makes her wonder that I won't be able to feed or clothe myself. Which makes no sense. Mothers are odd. I'm really glad I have The Boy, actually, he levels me out. He's so ridiculously kind that even The Mother thinks he's a walking angel of some sort. I also think The Mother's convinced he will help me survive once I'm off if I go off with him(since I can't feed myself or anything), since he's more used to such things. Wow, what a note. I'm sorry! Ahh! Stopping! And you're very kind, thank you. Internet hugs, and the crocheting is a wonderful idea.
from plopphizz :
You have been a serious role on comments. I am picking them up through indirect channels now, but I got the comment about serapay being galaxy and I smushed together. That was right on!! You has a really good feel for people and their style I think. Anyway, I updated your comments to the queen of comments, becasue you are. And I quoted you on serapay's comments. Drop me a note, lady, I feel a bit low on Elle-juice :). -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Ok Elle, I just finished Serapay's cartoon tonight and posted it. So you are up next on the list. Please e-mail me with some photos and some ideas about what should be in the final drawing of you. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
I hit my forehead on a wingnut in gym once and got blood all over the gym floor. The gym teacher freaked out when he saw me "OhMyGOD! Wadda ya do wadda ya do?" Yeah real cool customer, that one. -- P.P.
from serapay :
yay! glad to hear your part of the gouge-yourself-with-random-things-while-carrying-on-normal-activities club. i am an honorary member, i think. i have to admit that i also "get edgy when you're left holding up nothing," but i will try not to bite. hah. hah.
from comma-abuse :
Coincidentally, my entry also involves a fair amount of forehead bleeding. Sort of. Hope it doesn't hurt too much, Lappymom.
from hubbabub :
Ouch! That sucks. Hope you heal fast!
from plopphizz :
elle, You win the prize today for the most oddly phrased compliment: "Of course, you are not without thought yourself". Thanks, I try to use my brain at least twice a day to thunk out thoughts. :) Yeah, well, I am trying to weasel out of a self-portrait -- not because I don't want to immoralize myself in wacky lines and colors, but more because it's one less character to draw :). Laziness wins again!! -- P.P.
from sullivan40 :
Haloscan is easy. I have it. I can walk you through it.
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle, I talked to blueavenue and muppet23 about setting up HaloScan comments and they both got them set up this weekend. I thought maybe you could chat with them and see how to do it. I figure they can help you better than I, since they have set up the comments and I have not. Drop one (or both) of them a note, they are very friendly folks. -- P.P.
from serapay :
can i send you pwesentssssssssssssss??!! e-mail me!!! : )
from plopphizz :
Hey, I love that note you left on the holy pesto entry. I'm sure I did lose things, because my dirty laundry was full of evil :). -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
I'm glad you focused on me for the clarification, because I am easily confused :). -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Sometimes I think I am missing pieces of your stories. Why was your van impounded, was he using it? And why is he being arrested for picking up his own belongings? -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Never heard of the butt slasher. I thought those types of legends spanned the entire national, but I guess not. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
I will never look at a spoon the same way again. I don't even know if that is a good or a bad thing. -- P.P.
from mom-on-roof :
Manamana. Pateepateepa! Manamana. Pateepeetee! Manamana. Pateepateepa Pateepa Pateepateepateepateepatee!
from plopphizz :
Now see, you got me so caught up in the wordplay that I didn't even read what the cause of the dramaramanah was. Hope things are working out well on your end anyway. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Actually, you could combine "melodrama" and "phenomena" to get "melodramanomena" as well. This sounds very similiar dramaramanamana, which also sounds like the gang from the T.V. show 'Shanana' starring in a daytime soap opera. Isn't this fun?? :) P.P.
from plopphizz :
Whoopsie! Look like I spelled "anomaly" incorrectly, glad you caught it. The word should be 'melodramanomaly'. Heh, sorry about that. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Wow you are on a commenting rampage today :). I will catch up with you tonight, but presently, work is calling. -- P.P.
from legalbeagle :
BEAUTIFUL!! "Living well is the best revenge" - Eleanor Roosevelt
from mom-on-roof :
WOW! No one's EVER tamed a wild stallion as a tribute to my beauty before, I don't know what to say. I'll just tell them I have notheeng to say. But I do like your sleeves. They're so... big. There's plenty more where that came from, if you'll go to the dance with me. (I could do this all day.)
from devian :
i have not seen that movie, but i will...i'm behind in my movie-watching (it's pathetic really what i HAVEN'T seen). she is one of my all-time favorites...i especially like her one-woman shows. no one does a one-woman show like her....she has an entire universe inside of her.
from devian :
i wanted to go see I &hearts huckabees because of lily tomlin (adore her) and mark walberg (wanna screw him!) i'm glad you liked it--i shall seek it out now!
from kitchenlogic :
Can you believe this sunshine?!!! Who cares about the temperature when it looks so alive out there!!!!!
from plopphizz :
Cool! I can't wait to see what you create. I'm sure HB will be a great source for you as well. -- P.P.
from hairburner :
Well, start with that, and then move into regular knitting. You will enjoy it, but beware as the "yarn stash" is more addictive than the "fabric stash". Well, to me anyway. YAY you!
from devian :
you know i've been missing you like crazy :) i understand though, i retreat, too when i don't feel like i'm going to offer any positive energy...we just like to lick our wounds in peace. i'm sure you realize how big this revaltion (re: home) is for me as you've seen me struggle with this issue for a long time! keep your head up sweetie--it will pass.
from comma-abuse :
Aw, you know, if all goth kids were like that I'd be hugging them all over the place. The one's I'm talking about just seem bored with their lives and figure photographs of themselves with strawberry jelly smeared on their wrists will make them cool. It makes you want to slap them and teach them what real problems are like. Or, like I said. Bake them cookies.
from onewetleg :
i remember when i was a young, idealistic vegetarian and stuff like that used to bother me. now i'm an older, jaded omnivore/freegan who will eat anything that doesn't still have its head attached. i still refuse to eat the whole deepfried fish they sell at the chinese grocery. it's looking at me. i think being a vegetarian is all well and good. but hey, sometimes being to gung ho about doing the right thing can swing around and smack you right in the ass. a cow would eat you if he or she were hungry enough, after all. oh, and i still can't eat meat off the bone. eww. ribs? no thank you. hehe. love,
from bonypony :
In terms of entries being compared to bathing, this entry of yours is like dipping your foot back into the warm bath that diaryland is/can be. I certainly understand not having the whatever-it-takes to write an entry. I'm depressed and weird enough that sometimes I can't do it for weeks, as you well know. I'm just glad to see words coming out of you. And I love when you comment. I love reading your comments on everyone's pages.
from captvfirefly :
Thanks for your comment in regard to the whole Mr.48 experience. Yes, it might be good for me to experience the receiving end of things for a while (in more ways than one. LOL). Also, I'm glad you're back... er, somewhat back. I miss your updates, and I hope everything in the backstage area is going along well.
from sullivan40 :
Thanks for adding me to your profile. Since you value my political view do you think I was right to attack a fellow lefty blogger for being dishonest. Personally, when I take the side of Fox News I feel it really has be for something over the line.
from bonypony :
it's been over a week. we need a mommylapupdate!
from plopphizz :
Also, did you get the email I sent you. I can never remember which address is the best one on which days. Let me know either way -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Thanks for the comment. It is interesting I didn't want to post my picture for a long time, because I didn't want the way I look not to match the way I write. That is to say, I don't want someone looking at my face and going, he doesn't *look* funny or entertaining, so maybe he isn't really that funny or entertaining. I thought a picture of utter confusion (which was exactly what was occurring during the photos) fit the best. -- P.P.
from hubbabub :
Happy New Year, sweetheart!
from plopphizz :
Maybe tonight...maybe tooo-night....maybe toooo-niiiiiiiiieeeeetttt... Hey I'm not Tony but it will havta do. -- P.P.
from zitronengel :
Ah, family. Sometimes good, sometimes exhausting, sometimes both.
from cinnamon1j :
I LOVE west side stories and musicals in general
from plopphizz :
I love West Side Story. We have the DVD. The music is so complex and bizarre, but it works. I forgot who did the musical score, but he definitely knew what he was doing. Plus, just one, I want to be in a conflict with someone where we both shout out "Mambo!! Mambo!! ... GO!!" and resolve are differences though a ensemble dance number. BTW, when are you getting haloscan? -- P.P.
from hubbabub :
Merry Christmas! (Late!) As far as Love Actually goes...yes, we are probably far too often like Laura L. and not enough like the yahoo who ventures off to Wisconsin to be a love god. The assistant is definitely evil but I still feel bad for her. However, the part where Emma T. opens the CD and not the necklace makes me SOB. I love that movie WAY too much. It's just so fucking hopeful.
from wifemotherme :
Have a very Marry Christmas and a Blessed new year!
from hausfrau :
Thank you so much, I do feel reassured. You work for Target. I'm addicted to that store.
from im2evil4u :
Beautiful photo. Have a wonderful time and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
from indigo-love :
merry christmas! have fun in milwaukee! :)
from plopphizz :
That is just too damn cool!! I didn't see this coming at all. I remember you are a sewing goddess and I even remember your reference in one of my motes to getting a burlesque name, but never in a million years would I have guessed what it all amounted, too. I wish I could have seen it. -- P.P.
from captvfirefly :
I'm in agreement with the acid trip comment. But, you're back! I missed ya. I was getting a bit worried there....
from legalbeagle :
Dude. Reading that entry was like an acid trip.
from bonypony :
The Great King Rat was a dirty old man and a dirty old man was he. (The immortal words of Freddie Mercury). I, like Ploppy, have no idea what it all meant. Sounded like a dream, it did. Love the antique sepia-toned worn-edge photo!
from plopphizz :
Holy crap, where the heck have you been? I read the entry, but for the life of me, I can't understand it. Were you in a play or at Disneyland or what? Anyway, glad to see you back, I was getting a bit worried. -- P.P.
from cinamonjaide :
I just learned that you can get into my diary by typing my username cinamonjaide and then use the password jaide. I thought I could only add 9 people, but you can use my user name to view my journal. Feel free.
from westyrex :
Have you heard the mash-up version of Christina singing "Genie In A Bottle" over the Strokes song? It's SO good. Her vocal ends up sounding oddly like Chrissie Hynde. I am being completely honest.
from onewetleg :
miss you mommylap. come back.
from plopphizz :
Hey there, you've been kind of quiet this week, checking to see what is up. -- P.P.
from cinamonjaide :
Hi my name is Jaide, and I am just letting you know that I added you. Take a look at my journal, and hopefully you will add me too. If we are already friends, GREAT! I am sending a note to everyone on my buddy list, so just overlook this, if we have already exchanged journals. Jaide
from galaxyrabbit :
you are my hero. the salinger story.
from sunflowery :
I would totally be up for a crochet/coffee day!
from sunflowery :
I am so sorry to have missed you too! It's funny because the "spa" clothes I made, are specifically for the body, but not one of them sold. So I will have to see what to do about that. I know they were priced kind of high, but the yarn costs more than $7 a skein so to make any kind of profit on them, the price has to be higher. *sigh* Oh well. Thanks for the note, and for sure, if you want a special order, let me know. I can't not be crocheted something at all times. Love ya!
from jessnichole :
Thanks for the notes!! Usually pink eye is rapidly cured... but unfortunately the reason my eyes were so freakin red was because I had a bad reaction to the eye drops that were given to me, so I've had to go through a whole new thing for treating it, and it's gonna take longer. But eh. I can't wait to wear contacts again!! As for singing.. I don't think I could ever handle going to the U. haha. It's waaaaayyyy too big for me. I might end up going to MSU though if I don't get into where I want to go... I really don't like MSU though. It just has no character to it. And thanks for your offer for the dress thing! :) I'll keep you in mind if I have a perfect thing set in my mind and I can't find it. :)
from plopphizz :
We had a green genie-looking bottle that I thought the same thing about. Must be a common little-kid fantasy. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Ello elle, quick note to see how you are doing and to invite you over to see the Christmas decorations I put up on my Plop Phizz banner yesterday. Let me know how things are going, things are pretty crazy in my neck of the woods presently, but it should cool down in the next few weeks. -- P.P.
from rdhdprincess :
Thanks for the sweet note honey. And yes, I did see that entry about how busy you are, I just choose not to accept it. Pfffffbt! (Sorry, I am feeling really giddy and childish today) Love, C
from rdhdprincess :
Ok, not to be demanding or anything, but I'm missing my Lap update! It's been TWO days! Hope all is well with you and the girls. Sigh. I miss you!
from pandionna :
OMG! I just clicked through from the Princess's profile page and read a few of your entries. The Grover thing? I love it! So, if your hit counts go up because someone is poking around in your archives, that's me.
from onewetleg :
obvious, like you. that is sweet. remind me again why i dont want children, please. yes? check. uh huh. thanks.
from rdhdprincess :
Awwww, that is sweet! She is pretty right on there, too. You're at the top of my list of smart women. You won't believe this, but I actually bought that same box of crayons at Target on Sunday, for $1.00! I thought that was such a great pricethat I included the box in the gifts we are getting for our Foster Mother's children, to bring when we (ever) go back to get Bella. So, really, we bought crayons together and I think that is sweet. I love Crayola's. How do you feel about Play-Doh? That is one of my favorites as well. Great stress reliever.
from im2evil4u :
Actually, I took that photo from a moving car that was doing at least sixty MPH on the FDR. I'm shocked it came out as good as it did. Thanks a lot, I love it as much as you do.
from bonypony :
Dear Booger Nose, I loved coloring as a kid. Prided myself on my fine technique and my staying-inside-the-lines power. And hey, Peanuts? Too good. It's sad that a lot of whippersnappers today don't take the time to understand the subtle qualities that make it such a timeless damned cartoon. It's really sweet and beautiful on the right days. Some of the anthologies from the 60s are staggeringly warm and insightful in a way that no other cartoons are. Anyway, I'm blabbering. Love you, me.
from hubbabub :
Obvious=smart=you=priceless! Also, I LOVE coloring. I used to do it all the time when I lived back home...even into my teen years. It was my G-rated stress relief. God knows I need more of that...maybe I'll take it up again.
from rdhdprincess :
Well I love you, too! Sending lots of love and feel good wishes your way. Be careful with that chicken fat. And go home! Sleep! You don't need to be at work this way. (It hurts more than you think it does, you're just strong and don't realize it, but when you get back to normal feeling good you will realize that you did feel bad. So there) I wish I could send you sick day money to take the time off.
from captvfirefly :
And we love you too! :) Sorry to hear about the attack of the chest cold - I hope it clears up soon. And yeah, while I try to understand that lots of women have their own body demons to deal with, I just can't imagine worrying if I only weighed 126 lbs.
from galaxyrabbit :
and we love you too, lap. i'm sorry about the cold. i had one not too long ago and the phlegm lasted for-EVER. kinda fun though.
from im2evil4u :
I felt the very same way about Bridgette Jones. 126 pounds? HA!
from plopphizz :
Hey, haven't heard from you in a while. let me know if you have ideas for that parenting smell entry. I will probably be putting it together before the end of this weekend. -- P.P.
from captvfirefly :
Oohh, you've got a crush! Whooo!! Inappropriate you say? Bah, crushes are allowed to be inappropriate. :) Sounds like a whole lotta fun to me. I like him - he knows a good woman when he sees one!
from hubbabub :
Your comments are not working. And I must speak. 1) I love hand-sqeezing. It is A#1 the best thing intheworld. 2) It's totally a crush. 3) I love inappropriate! Let's be inappropriate!
from publicdomain :
Sorry mommylap. We never check the notes. As a matter of fact we are no longer updating the diary page. The new website will have a diary included so this will be kind of pointless. We currently have a section to post messages on our website that I do check (although even the website hasn't been updated either). And a daily post from me? My life is not nearly that interesting enough to post a daily message. John
from hubbabub :
It's totally fine to add me. Just don't mention my old identity's name. :)
from pwrprez :
Oh my darling PIC, I am so glad I finally found your diary again! I don't know what happened to the link! :( Anyhoo...you know that you are one of my absolute favorite people in the entire world. We have the most enlightening conversations, tee hee hee! I miss you, EEP and the Mina...my girls! Oodles and oodles of love to you! And always remember..."Hell, we've loved each other since the day we met!"
from plopphizz :
Okay, I still think Misty Lapdance is a good name, but Ordinario is better. What an odd and funny thing to make the word "ordinary" sound exotic. That's so good, it should have been mine ;). -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
That reminds me, I gotta collect up all those lines and see what the full thing looks like. I only picked Emma because of Mommy Lap = M. Lap = Em Lap = Emma Lapdance. But that Em could be M., we just need to come up with a good stripper name that starts with M, like: Misty Lapdance. Or go with Elle or Stella, except, as you well know, Stella has Street Car and Marlon Brando written all over it. But whatever makes you happy, kid. -- P.P.
from wendyloo :
Oh, it's the same room, I never finished it. After that I have three more rooms to do. I could paint for weeks and not run out of projects.
from plopphizz :
BZZZZZTTT!! Sorry, "pale" has already been used in the line "Indoors all day, our skin was pale"
from plopphizz :
His life had been wrecked by deceit and betrayal
from galaxyrabbit :
i will totally get the tootsie roll lip balm the next time i'm at target. the closest one is, sadly, far away (i think?) but i do need that lip balm. i loves the lap, i truly loves the lap.
from plopphizz :
Which we had soaked in hearty ale.
from plopphizz :
Which I picked up at K-Mart, at a blue light sale. P.S. -- YAY for you, good job conquering life's barriers, Elle. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
I threw a tantrum, my limbs did flail
from plopphizz :
I'm going to go with "lazy", because it's closer to the truth. But really, the reason is work is taking a lot of time presently. Okay enough of that I need to collect all these lines together and come up with a new one.
from plopphizz :
Sorry, I know I posted a line, maybe it didn't go through. Anyway: They fought each other tooth and nail.
from plopphizz :
Oh man you are funny Elle. I looked up "trevail" on dictionary.com, and guess what? It suggested "travail", which, by the way, is a real word :). So, thanks for the reference heh. Let's go lady, I gave you a new line :) -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
It's not cheating if I didn't tell you the rules. But, yeah, the point of the game is to keep going until one of us can't come up with a rhyme. One line per person, per turn. And you can't use the same word over again. That's when the poem is over. When the other person goes insane :). I will start from "trevail" (as soon as I look up what it means).
from plopphizz :
Indoors all day, our skin was pale
from plopphizz :
Oh brother, did I write "Diaryland land" on that last one? I am one awesome poet. Hmmm, I also forgot what you wrote on my notes. I'll be right back...
from plopphizz :
Okay here goes: On Diaryland land, we spun a tale.
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle. I just thought of a new game we can play on notes. I will start with a line. Then you need to continue it with another line that ends in a rhyming word. For example: Help me, help me, I'm so bored. then you say: Frustration cuts me like a sword, then I say, I must do things that are abhorred. Ok, my spelling and grammar sucks but if you get the idea, note me back and then I will start it. -- P.P.
from heelandlass :
I think we somehow swapped heads over the weekend - you were supposed to go out and didn't make it and I wasn't supposed to go out and did make it. I'm sure there's a movie plot in there somewhere! Ran-danning is like painting the town red. You'd say it like 'she went out on the ran-dan and didn't get back in till lunchtime the next day'. That kind of thing. It's a good one - people don't say that enough. Oh and it's amazing when you try on something that used to fit but stopped fitting and it fits again. Well done you. xxx
from plopphizz :
Quick check, can you see the sunday entry in the time-released entry today?
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle, I need a note. I will provide a random topic: women can be sexy wearing men's clothing, but is there any article of women's clothing that a man can wear that doesn't look ridiculous? -- P.P.
from galaxyrabbit :
oh, hair woes are sad, aren't they? for some reason, i'm sure you look fantastic, despite your comments to me. i've missed a few entires of yours and that makes me sad, so i'm going to ketchup.
from thecritic :
Let's go! Donut for donut. First one to have a quadruple bipass wins haha
from plopphizz :
Are you on an Instant messenger? We need to talk about these kids :) Sned me an address and a program. Your brain works way faster then my and thanks for the recent notes -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
send me an email again, I need to talk to you
from plopphizz :
No competition, Elle, just glad to make you smile. :) -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
There, it is not much, but it is a bit of Plop Phizz funny. hope you enjoy it and I promise I will be back in full force at soon as my sim fmaily conquers the world :). P.P.
from plopphizz :
Hey lady, you are correct, I am a D.L. flake. Better to be missed than having you get sick of me :). I do have some new ideas, I just need to break through the artistic and real life rut I am in. As always, thanks for your support Elle. -- P.P.
from smokeybone :
I agree with you. Truth is truth. Ugly or not, and sometimes the truth is ugly, it is universal. Whether you "accept" it or not is irrelevant. I hope you enjoy the film. I would love to know what you think of it.
from smokeybone :
We only have eight shows total, this is community theatre, so we don't get long runs either. I always hate it when it is all over. This is without a doubt, the best showI have ever been a part of.
from smokeybone :
Thanks so much for the note. We actually had an excellent opening weekend. The audiences loved the show. They laughed, they cried, they had a great time.
from plopphizz :
Emma comes from Em. Em(ma) Lap(Dance) = Em Lap = M Lap = mommylap. I had to change Em into something and Emma was the closer I could think of. Sounds like you got some real life things to work on recently also. But unlike me, you keep writing in your diary, whereas I (for some strange reason I haven't undercovered yet) appear to be recording day to day events on people notes and comments :). We finally got all the moving done over the weekend so maybe I can squeeze a story out of it. -- P.P.
from yakkety-yak :
it really worries me that a product such as spam can have such an affect on a nation though. ah well.
from plopphizz :
You got it :). I came up with a stripper name for you, too: Emma LapDance. Aren't you lucky you have me around to twist your user name into all sorts of perverted and degrading titles for you? P.P.
from westyrex :
All will be well with the Rabbit and I, but it's going to take some time. It hurts so much, and I am way too sad right now. Thanks for the love.
from plopphizz :
a77a ewew !H turn it upside down :) Tell me if it makes sense.
from plopphizz :
Elle, you rock, I'm sorry I haven't been on but I really appreciate the link. We are wrapping up the details with the boys: jobs, apartment , finding the money for it all -- fun fun :). Hopefully, I will be back to my obnoxious, commenting and noting self in another day or two. -- P.P.
from smokeybone :
You gotta watch what you say around kids huh? That's how we ended up with guinea pigs. My son said he wanted them, I said if he saved his own money he could have them, thinking of course that would never happen. But I'll be darned if the little guy didn't go and do it!
from smokeybone :
Hey thanks for adding me to your list of favorites. I really feel honored to be in such great company. And I really mean that.
from plopphizz :
We are in the process of getting my stepsons moved into an apartment with a friend of theirs. I only found out Wednesday night, so its been busy heh. - P.P.
from devian :
lap, meeting you face to face would be as exciting as meeting one of my favorite celebrities. <3 we shall meet and we shall have fun and damn it, we shall make it a regular thing!
from smokeybone :
Oops, I meant to add more to that...the play is by Tom Griffin and it is about four mentally handicapped men who share an apartment together and who are trying to make it through the difficulties of their lives. It is both funny and heart wrenching. I play a character named Norman Bulanski. It is actually a role I have wanted to do for about three years now,so I am very excited about it.
from smokeybone :
Thanks for the note. The play is called THE BOYS NEXT DOOR
from plopphizz :
Me again, check out my latest entry. I think you will really like it. It's not the weird useless interactive toy idea I told you about before -- but it is interactive and features three of my favorite DL'ers. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Oh, LOL. That's why you sent me that e-mail. I left you so many notes that evening I forgot the request for a top spot on your favorites list. But as I stated in the e-mail, the content is more important than the spot, and that comment is great, so thanks :)!! -- P.P.
from wifemotherme :
Listen, there may be a way out of this - go to the bank - go into the bank and ask to speak to someone above a teller. Explain the situation and more often than not they will deduct the OD fees. But you have to talk to a person in person, wont work over the phone. Just dont take no for an answer - the branch manager does have the athroity to override the fees - GOOD LUCK!!!
from plopphizz :
Elle, me again, I want a top spot on your favorites list, please. It really would mean a lot to me. I know you say it doesn't mean much, the order and all, but it means something to me from you, thanks for considering, PP
from plopphizz :
Hey elle, me again, happy labor day weekend. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
You ever read the Phantom Tollbooth? I haven't read it since I was in junior high. Just picked it up recently and it's *still* good. I'd recommend it if you haven't read it. Probably a bit too advanced for your young kids, but you might enjoy it for yourself. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Heh heh, cool, I like that puzzle. They was this other thing I got from kirstentracy where you come up with a phrase like "Can't teach an old dog new tricks" then you translate it to another language and back again on babelfish. And it comes back sounding really funny. It's in one of my older entries. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Wow, it's like a Starbucks double shot elle-spresso :). My readers are an eclectic collection that all seem to like different things, probably because I keep jumping around on topics and styles. I figure if I can have just one person enjoy an entry, that's good enough for me, and since you are my hardcore supporter, I always get that one reader :). -- P.P.
from devian :
hey lap! i opened up my old diary again--didn't you see that i added you as a favorite? :P of course you'd never lose me--that could never ever happen!!!!!
from plopphizz :
Hey, looka me me ME!! There I climbed back to the top of your note list with all the style and intelligence of a five year old. Thought you could relate to it. Just wanted to send out another thank you to Elle for being my number uno fan and giving me comment lovin' on every weird tangent I happen to expose you to. :) -- P.P.
from westyrex :
Christ, you have great taste in music. Anyone who knows those early dB's records is my favorite person on Earth. I'm preparing a HUGE list of my favorite music to put online in a day or so. You must read it and tell me what things you love as well. AND THEN, tell me what I forgot! I love your stories, and I love you.
from westyrex :
Mommy L., in the new Nylon for boys magazine, Jason (formerly of Phantom Planet) lists his favorite bands, and most of them match mine. It's astounding. I mean, I loved the guy in fucking Rushmore, and thought he was good in Spun, and knew of his heritage, but GODDAMN does he have good taste. As do you. Anywho. Love, Westy. P.S. Thanks for having me and my honey on your faves list. You are a favorite in my heart and on my dland.
from smokeybone :
I really enjoyed your diary and am adding you to my favorites list. Aren't you thrilled? No. I don't blame you.

from smokeshack :
Once upon a time, I was woken up by RuPaul wanting some monkey. This ran me, and I said ZOINKS!. This tragic nun wouldn't take that answer as final and said "Don't you angry me anymore?" I felt and hurt my cock. The I said "I either need a amstel light, or to run right away." Instead I gave the bitch he asked for, and caught to just gag already. fucking the goose on, I was delighted to hear "save me". "Leave me to my happy please, all I want is some whore. And shit. And to never eat you again. At least until xmas. Unless you have WILCO with you, in which case- punch right over."
from plopphizz :
You on tonight? I love doing the "pony express" message exchange heh. P.P.
from plopphizz :
Wow holy heck lady. Actually I much more liked your entry with that beautiful picture of yourself...well partially because you linked to me, but mostly it was so much the simpler happy times. Am I a fun-whore or what?? -- P.P.
from mommylap :
If no one has added to ether yet, let me know if you want me to hit it again cause I totally WILL. I have purged the gross story for the record thank god. It's hard to write about something that you find sort of pathetic, and uninteresting, but there's sort of no getting around the fact the event will be referred to. The drama of last summer was funnier to me though.
from plopphizz :
FYI, your next installment link is not going to the OWL entry with the story in it.
from plopphizz :
Cool, yeah I just saw Ethel's comment on the posting. If we can get just one person at each site to continue on, it should keep going. If not we can always loop it back to me. Worst case scenario, four people is already enough to keep the story going in loops and make it entertainingly unique. -- P.P.
from wiccanlife :
YOU GO GIRL ;-)
from plopphizz :
Yes, you've got the exact right idea as usual. I thought maybe it could even be a small group at first, seeing as it is a first-time idea. Maybe a looping thing between you, me, and maybe Wes and Galaxy once they get done with the wedding. Not to exclude anyone else, of course, but these interactive entries only work if there is a core of people participating. Then other new people see that "yeah, I could do this" and participate later. Thanks for the note (as always) and best wishes on dealing with all those things going on in your life. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
FYI, I posted one of those hyperlink experiements today, so please read through it and let me know how it sounds, whether it makes sense, any questions you have, etc. Thanks, P.P.
from littlebub :
Thanks hon. You rock!
from plopphizz :
Sorry, I just now got your mad lib filled out. Like an idiot I was so focused on helping to get it to work I forgot to fill it out heh. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
YAY! You did it -- it's weird providing technical support over a DairyLand note board heh.
from plopphizz :
Nope, now you are not unchecking the 'automatically insert html paragraph breaks?' checkbox before you submit
from plopphizz :
Got your email. See my reply on what was wrong with the madlib code. Let me know if you have any other problems. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Is there a madlib up? Did you have some issues with the code? Westy has been giving me some feedback on bugs, so if you have problems, let me know I will look into them. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Elle, I left a note with westy on the hyperlink project. I'm going to start it this next week, so be looking for notes and read my entries. talk to you soon, Plop.
from plopphizz :
I figured as much. Too be honest, I mostly left that part of the message because I couldn't resist using the word 'hydrocephalic' again.
from wiccanlife :
WOW, your like the only person I know that has had Apples and Onions, I'ts soooo Good. Did you have it as a kid? My Nana made it when I was small. MMMMMM Good
from plopphizz :
Hey, heads up, I got the Madlib Maker in this weekend. It may be a bit buggy, but if you could try it out and see how it works (or doesn't work) for you that would be great. Send any feedback, good or bad, my way. Thanks, P.P.
from onewetleg :
yeah, but the gang in this neighborhood are blue shirts. i wouldn't get shot or anything for wearing red, they just look at me. i prefer invisibility so i shy away from the red. just common sense, i think.
from wiccanlife :
Thanks for the note. It really made me smile to know that someone gets it. ;-)
from smokeshack :
hey sweetie--i'm feeling much better today! kind of groggy still, but i'm surviving! i love how inspiration hits at the strangest times...and with the darkness of the album, i thought that it was an appropriate title :) i'm glad you like it--you tell me if it fits <3
from westyrex :
Hey, stop being so nice! I'm just starting to get used to a life of not being appreciated. Honestly, your comments and stories connect with me too. I love having someone who knows some of my heroes, and has had some of the same experiences. I love Clowes and Bagge as well. I'm sure we'd have a great time rooting through each other's record, comic, book and movie collections. I love reading your stuff, love that you read me, and it's nice having friends on here who seem like people I'd actually befriend in the real world, y'know? Thank you.
from wiccanlife :
I just read some of your diary. Some of it made me LOL. Thanks :-)
from im2evil4u :
Hey, I just wanted to touch base with you and confirm that you received the email I sent with my phone number. Call me when you arrive and we'll make plans. Looking forward to it.
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle, changed my comments on you today, check them out. Just wanted to tell you I really appreciate you supporting me and my writing here, you rock my diaryland world :) -- P.P.
from onewetleg :
omg! furbies! really?! cool. i remember that from what, years ago? :) yay! do you have my addy? send them usps, it's easier. i found the post office today, it's just five blocks from here! whee!!!
from im2evil4u :
Yeah, my vote was for Westy too. He is simply delicious (you didn't hear that)
from plopphizz :
Sounds good, I am running another batch of B*E*R*T*S this week, but as soon as that is done I will note Kristin and you and get this thing going. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Wow, I gotta post more notes, I am getting displaced. So I had this new idea, thought you could help. I basically want to start a "Diaryland Choose Your Own Adventure" thingie. I start with an entry describing the reader's experience with me, then link to you and maybe some other people. The link that goes to you is a continuation of the story, you find some writers to link to, etc. Am I explaining this very well, my mind gets cloudy after the eighth shot of Nyquil...
from onewetleg :
fantastic entry, as always. the crocodile is your life and the little critters are the problems that crop up. you have to keep driving. again you turn the phrases that bring tears to my eyes. why can't i write good like you? love, you lap, thanks for the comment. that is what happened to me, too. people kept saying, 'you look thinner..' and then one day my pants just busted a big sag. like the pants grew. i still feel the same. i don't feel smaller, just stronger. i like it.
from westyrex :
The Batman costume was JUST FOR YOU! Glad you like it. God, "Up On The Sun". Their best. I saw that tour. They were SO great. Got to talk to Cris about the show I saw, and he remembered it, and cleared something up for me that I'd always been confused about, regarding a vegetable tray. And oh lordy, early Soul Asylum! Wow. I saw them a lot, got drunk with 'em, LOVED those albums. Hell, up until Grave Dancers Union they still had great songs on LPs. You have great taste in music, Ms. Lap. I am going to continue reading your stuff and loving you more and more.
from westyrex :
Oh my God. Just read the story you pointed me toward. So horrible. As a guy with a lot of drug history, I'll guarantee you they were both using. I can also guarantee you that she's a bit of a crackpot, and he's easily manipulated. I could probably guarantee you more. Jeez. If you lived down the block I'd come over and let you put your head on my shoulder. What a horrifying story. I'm sorry. I'm going to keep reading. You're a wonderful writer, and obviously very strong to have held up through all of this stuff.
from westyrex :
Great,the whole world is laughing at me. Poo. I'm going to read and catch up, thank you for pointers on where to start!
from smokeshack :
no, i do not have the new wilco BUT, i have downloaded one of their recent shows (6/6/04) and they do a ton of new songs and some great old ones from YHF and Summerteeth. I haven't listened to it all yet, but the new songs I DID hear (like, two or three) were ok--nothing caught me as WOW, but again, haven't heard enough of the new stuff...can't wait to hear the ALBUM versions, though :) i'm broke. i'm saving my pennies for the new kd lang album, which will no doubt be 100x better than wilco (i am obviously biased)
from westyrex :
Now I read your new entries and find that I'm going to have to go back and read all of it like a book, because I need to know who KGB is, and I just need more history. Damnit! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
from plopphizz :
Wow, that's weird. So I am popping over to JuddHole's site to do a "penis" and "fucking fuck" (forgive me if your children read this, heh) bit on his comments about his madlib entries (i.e. Dear Fucking Fuck...excuse me, Mr. Fuck, etc.) and there is a note from you right after I link to the comments. Then I pop back and see he wrote you a note. And I gotta say a couple of things here. The note is real, sincere Juddhole (as oddly disturbing as that sounds) -- no B.S. I say that because he really does write with respect for the lap. And indirectly I know he needs the lap in his diaryland life. So just spank his ugly, white, kilted ass (after I leave the room), call him a fucking fuck, and rub his belly until his left legs shakes uncontrolably. He truly does understand the lap :). Chats later - P.P.
from plopphizz :
Hey Elle, you were talking about movies (Brando) in your entry today. I know you love Jon Favreau, you check out 'The Big Empty'? A friend of mine from work went to high school with the writer director. Favreau is the main character and the movie is pretty good (sorta Repo Man meets X-files). Watch it and let me know what you think -- P.P.
from juddhole :
Lap, baby, you are just about the sweetest, kindest, bestest mommy-type chick I've ever read. Yes, you always have something sweet and funny to say when I update and I don't ever comment on your updates, but I hope you realize, I'm a bit of an assholy smartass. I tend to leave comments when I feel there's an opening for me to point out something about the diary in my childish and retarded way. Your stuff usually makes me feel kind of good, and not like being a shitwipe at all, so it's hard to shift gears. I always read and enjoy though. One of my superpowers is finding the appropriate thing to say in almost any given situation, I just haven't shown it on your site yet, as I'm still feeling you out for your super-abilities. So far, you have me far outmatched, and I'm intimidated by women with more radioactive power than me.
from westyrex :
Oh baby! I'm gonna love reading your stuff. It's funny. I was introduced to this by my girlfriend, and the first entries I saw were by depressed young girls, but there's a whole world of fun in between the lines. I came to your page through kristintracy (love her and her brother), and I love your taste in everything, your love of comics (I'm a HUGE comic geek, and have been buying them since the 60s...I have my original Silver Surfer #1, ancient X-Men,Spider-Man,etc.).I'm going to read you in depth soon. Like a book. I love doing that when the people are interesting. More later! Westy
from smokeshack :
hey you :) i agree--"Helpless" is one of my favorite songs and one of the most beautiful. i didn't think it could get ANY better than the CSNY version--but low and behold, k.d. has claimed another song as her own. it will CHILL YOU!
from plopphizz :
Elle, I did a Madlib survey today. Check it out, it has (*drumroll*) a superhero question!! Woo Hooooo!! -- P.P.
from coralsandzz :
I am addicted to celebrity gossip. I view several websites a day for news, and I like the magazine In touch weekly. Gotta see what Britney Spears is up to. LOL
from coralsandzz :
Hi I enjoy your journal
from plopphizz :
You can go with Eminelle, too :).
from onewetleg :
my second favorite is twix. peanut butter twix of course. they don't taste the same as they did when i was a kid and they were may favorite. then they stopped making them and when they recently started again they just aren't the same.
from onewetleg :
who you callin' a grown-up!
from plopphizz :
Heyas Elle, just leaving a note because I like leaving notes for you :)...Cya soon P.P.
from onewetleg :
yay! you get it! i hate the commercialization of punk, but it was bound to happen. god knows, the ramones sold their songs a million years ago for commercials. i understand the need to make money and to eat, buy heroin, etc. but man. they made us believe and then turned into what they told us to hate. by the way, i don't stir my coffee. i like the sugar at the bottom. then that last cold drink of coffee is sugary yum. i know that's not what you meant but that's what i thought of when i read it. hehe. for so many years growing up i was bothered because i was different. punk changed all that for me. now, i love being different and i love being angry. i'm glad i'm not a braindead moron that shops at the mall. love,
from captvfirefly :
Hey there, thanks for the note! Now shhhh, don't tell anyone about that comment I left for Courtney. LOL Anway, welcome to the insanity, and thanks for adding me to your list. I'm honored! :)
from sullivan40 :
The New York Times article. Strange, now I can't leave a note in your comments.
from plopphizz :
Wow, this is weird...it's like IM but delayed. I just think everyone is always calling you Mommy, but that's the wrong image for you. You have a fun side too. I think Hot Mama Elle rocks :).
from plopphizz :
Actually, you have no choice but to like it. I am already using it :).
from plopphizz :
I think you need a racy nickname. How about Hot Mama Elle?
from plopphizz :
Yeah, I actually said what I had to say outside the e-mail, mainly the discussion about the adoption thing and asking about the Berts idea. But since its all already in notes and comments, I will just have to think of something else. Chats later then, lady -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
I need a more private way to communicate with you, give me an email, luv ya P.P.
from plopphizz :
I gotta know from you because you have a diaryland integrity that I admire. Am I whoring myself out with B*E*R*T*S?? my numbers are way up on hits, but Berts are only one aspect of my life. Am I going to destroy the local bar? Oh also, talk to me about me being adopted and you giving up a baby for adoption. I broke my rule about not talking political on abortion, you need to respond :).
from plopphizz :
My survey hero!! You kind of freak me out a bit because I actually had a superhero question I pulled at the last minute. actually I have a survey of 50 question I clipped down, but hey I am one of those people the artists call artists :).
from onewetleg :
yer durn toottin! the man was a menace. lesse, in 81 i was 14, just getting into punk-rock and pretty much pissed off at everything. i even wrote him a letter telling him all about himself. hehe. they sent me back a form letter and i just freaked!! and don't even get me started on that bitch nancy. drug war my ass. 'look at me, im a diva, i have a big head. i look like one of those bobble-head dolls.' *shudder* sigh. i'm glad i don't care about politics any more. i mean, i care, i just can't be assed to write about it. love,
from plopphizz :
Ok, you made some suggestions, so thanks for that :). I will move comments to the Bert pages again tomorrow. I just finished a survey, so please pop over and give my oddball collection of questions a whirl. Cya -- P.P.
from sunshine0221 :
Lap! I just found the very lovely note you left for me ages ago! You are a darling, and thanks for the jewelry compliments as I need motivation to get off my arse and start making some. Love your journal, write lots! :)Lauren
from plopphizz :
HAH! I'm going to bug you here every day until you leave a B*E*R*T caption on my site. We drew thirty of them little suckahs so I know there's got to be one that you can caption :).
from plopphizz :
If you are referring to not getting comments to your most recent entry, it's a pretty emotionally and politically charged issue. I personally never make comments on issues rooted in deep belief systems like abortion or religion. It just causes arguments that resolve nothing. I think most people want to just type something quick in comments, so posts about television shows, media, jokes, etc., are just a heck of a lot easier to respond to.
from smokeshack :
oh, lord--for a second, i read your note and thought i had missed some episodes! lord, i had to re-read that thing and then i calmed down. i would be really upset if i missed the premiere! it does look funny...i can't wait!!!!
from smokeshack :
hey you sweet thang...never think that simple life is trival. paris hilton and nicole richie always brighten my day <3 the smokeshack is always oozing big mommylap love.
from plopphizz :
Ah HA! Crap on a stick, you are right again -- that was a choice note!! Ah well, I won't let being an idiot get me down, or interfere with my normal idiocy. Thanks for the comment though :).
from plopphizz :
"buppling"? What the hell is wrong with my typing? That's suppose to be "pulling" laff. Although I think I like the word "buppling" better.
from plopphizz :
Hey, I ended up buppling that last entry. I don't think it quite fits in with my other stuff. Besides, if I am going to write serious stuff, I want it to be current. Thanks for your positive feedback on it.
from plopphizz :
M.L., you are too funny -- I am honored that you are giving me the back story though. I can't give you the twins peaks credit until I see the dancing midget -- is he a part of your life yet? Hey, if you have some time, please check out my newest entry -- it's a rehash of older writing, but it has a more serious tone to it. Mostly, I want to know if I include non-funny writing, will I lose the interest of my consistent readers. Appreciate any feedback.
from tinliz :
hey..i read your favorite band's the twittystevens connection..could you help me with something?i like one of their songs..-another perfect day- but i cant get a copy or even a download of that song..my email ad is real_and_fake_tv@yahoo.com..please contact me if you know where i can get that song.thanks a lot!
from plopphizz :
Hey, sorry to note spam, but one more question. Do you have your e-mail set up to get a notice when I add comments to old entries? If you do, you should have received a notice from me with a dirty harry reference. If you don't, you don't. Either way, let me know via notes, mamalop. T'anks P.P.
from plopphizz :
yeah masty -- as in "having the qualities of a mast"...no, I mean nasty (duh).
from plopphizz :
FYI, my Bertie Bott's review is in if you want to get an idea of how these masty things really taste. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Hey, just wanted to let you know I finally updated that eyesore of a default template on my blog. So please check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks, P.P.

I wish I had time to listen to the radio, school steals all my time.
from jgevans :
Hi There: A search for "Oar Folkjokeopus" led me to your diary. Great entry you wrote! That place is like the site of my re-birth as a person of my own making, blah blah (you're a better writer!). I live in Mpls now and I have a friend at City Pages that I'd love to send that picture to (with credit to you). Is there any chance that you'd allow that? Thanks again for the great entry. Here's my e-mail address: jevansmail@netzero.net -John Evans

from purplecigar :
Hi. And how funny are you? Theme music! I swear I never thought about the sexual aspect of "purplecigar." Honest. But, now that you bring it up...
from onewetleg :
ha. you wrote a note to jjisjj and i spent all day looking for it. i finally clicked on the link in the email, duh. i love the design. wenchie says it doesn't work in netscape. i'm looking into it. love,
from almostaflake :
Big Smootch - thanks for your note. Your story is amazing and inspiring. You did it and did not fall into a million pieces. You survived w/flying colors like a rockstar/super hero. YES!!! You inspire me.
from kristintracy :
Yes. I think we SHOULD start a club. And guess what? I think it should be like a quoted thing. Like we quote the people we like. Marinate on that.
from dani-lou :
Were you able to see my screen now? Let me know, maybe I can fiddle with it. Hugs, Dani.
from dizzy-dame :
You're a doll. :-) I was running a fever Friday night and yesterday, around 101 degrees. Meds always seemed to bring it down. So far, nothing nasty looks like it's growing in my throat, so good for that. No fever this morning, either, though I'm still sore. I'm going to see how it goes today. If this isn't clearing up by tonight, I'm going to bite the bullet, shell out the bucks, and see a doc. Yuck.
from kristintracy :
hey girl. wal-mart right now. i will be back! i hadn't been in so long, i forgot how much i enjoy it. in a weird way. wiper blades are no match for me (and my family, apparently, since it takes 3 of us to finish the job). man, i'm ready to go home.
from ittybittycat :
Hey, thanks a billion for the note. Much appreciated :D :D :D. I felt tons better after reading it. I'm addicted to American Idol too. I really like that Hawaiian chic who always has a flower in her hair and Amy.
from ladyvaduva :

from kristintracy :
you're so right. i really do assuming everything has to do with the godfather. and, yes, i have read it. a few times. i then went on a mario puzo kick and read "the sicilian", "fools die", and something else that i forget at the moment. "the sicilian" was pretty good, but it was AAAL downhill from there.
from upcountry :
aww, why thanks for the compliment. I hope the movie thing really goes through. just read your entry today - I would like to kick your ex in the ass repeatedly. my god. alot of the time I am aggravated with my spouse, but then I read something like this and realize he's not that bad. I have every Avon mascara they make. I buy them for my 2 older girls too, in brown and navy. I love cheap stuff. I think we have the same eyeglasses. *mwah*

perhaps it is her "camoflauge" - the singing that is. most people let a cough fly as they let a kid loose, but I suppose a nicely sung tune could accomplish the same. no? :)
from ursamajor :
Hee hee... did you watch Anna Nicole last night too? I LOVE Betsey Johnson and those cartwheels were just cracking me up! I also share your "I'm too old for this" dilemma. I really, really want to put some fire engine red streaks in my blonde hair... but I'm 33 and aren't 33 year olds are grown out of the "hair as art" stage? Well, I'm not! :) And lastly, thank you for the awesome note this morning!
from thecritic :
You are sooo sweet. Lets be friends
from kristintracy :
About something very difficult, but it was effortlessly put.
from kristintracy :
That was a really really really great entry.
from kristintracy :
Wait. The Emmys were already on, right? Or are you talking daytime Emmys? Hm. Anyway. My favorite dress of the night was Angelina Jolie. HANDS DOWN (nipples out)!
from onewetleg :
i don't know about that but jamie lee curtis, mrreowwwww! why does your diary always bring out the lesbian in me? love,
from kristintracy :
Man. Sophia Copolla in "Godfather Part DON'T DO IT, FRANCIS!!!" was insane. I think she normally looks like she smelled dog shit, and she did last night as well. I was underwhelmed by the Oscar fashion. And WHAT WAS UMA THURMAN WEARING???? Charlize needs to chill out with the spray-on tan. She is borderline Christina Aguilera-looking with that. Slightly more natural-looking, but not by much. I LOVE YOUR PROFILE PHOTO EVERY DAY.
from rdhdprincess :
That is the first thing I noticed, no color. Did you see even one woman wearing red lipstick? No, not even Catherine Zeta Jones who always does. Pale, pale mouths bored me. I thought Marcia Gay Harden looked lovely in the blue dress, but the hair was just ridiculous, ruined the whole look for me. And what's her name with the tan, what was up with her eyes? It looked like she still had huge bags under her eyes from the Monster movie, or like she had lots of brown eyeliner underneath, it was very odd. I was disappointed myself. I don't think I ever told you that you are good at matching people. I have been reading thinwishes for over a year now. How funy is that?
from fargahar :
My mom at a Drive thru: "Hi Mam Can I help you?" Mom: "Yeah I would like to place an order." and then when she finished the order,"And it's to go" Yeah really mom? What are you going to do sit there in the driveway and eat it?
from kristintracy :
YEEEEEEEEES. Unzipped is a FLAWLESS movie, and I love it to pieces. Unfortunately, it is the only one of its kind out there, and WE NEED MORE. That was really my point. Not that Unzipped isn't great, but we need more like it. And, yes to the script.

We're gonna vote (VOTE!) we're gonna vote that mutha out!!
from kristintracy :
oh muh lawd. i have not heard this n.e.r.d. song of which you speak. eesh. i need to get on that tyap. because, honestly, who trusts your judgement about such things? me.
from thisendup :
i'm hoping that none of those traits are for me... i could probably do martyr but i'd rather have one that says pity princess or something. you just need a t-shirt that says "her royal fineness"
from dani-lou :
Thanks for the comment! I really appreciate. I'm sure things will be clearer with time. Hugs, Dani.
from almostaflake :
BIG huge SMOOOOTCHIE - thank you so much mommylap. I needed that note.
from legalbeagle :
Repeat after me: "Do as I SAY, not as I DO!" You have hard-ass in you - you wouldn't have played Lucy Van Pelt so perfectly if you didn't!! EMBRACE YOUR INNER LUCY!!!
from devian :
don't feel too much pressure. dorothy should feel pressure because i'm comparing her to you. <3
from devian :
mmm...i think i shall name thee: DOROTHY. Because you're not dumb like Rose and you're not slutty like Blanche and you're not old like Sophia. So, you'd HAVE to be Dorothy. I have decided to be Rose...because I lack so much common sense.
from thecritic :
It's most definitely due to the fact that I've shed the tard ex roommate. Sorry I'm so slow in response to the note. I've been so busy as of late.
from kristintracy :
OH EM GEE. I don't even know what to say to this information about T.A. and C.A. Yes girl. Get the digits, punch the numbers, do the do. THIS. MUST. HAPPEN.
from kristintracy :
Hey girl. Eric and I on TV RIGHT NOW. Seriously. We need to a) get some money b) meet and become friends with people in The Business and c) I need to get a haircut. I'm thinking I'll work the list backwards.
from mom-on-roof :
Nope, not hearing anything from Al. I worry for her too, I'm hoping they're busy locking that jerk, Del, up or something equally positive.
from fargahar :
So this friend of mine, nypizzas2, has this layout and I cannot go there without constantly being reminded of the ghost of mommylap past.
from devian :
***i'm giving you a big hug and kiss to ease your blues***
from rdhdprincess :
I'm sorry you're sad sweetie. It's got to be hard to be so responsible and have to take care of so many things with so little help. I wish I was closer and could help. I wish I was closer and could at least make Scott miserable for you. I wish I was closer and could give you a big hug and remind you how wondcerful you are!

Jim Handley's Universe on New Dorp Lane, right?! Unreal, I was always in that store. My ex-BF had a hard-on for that store and dragged me every weeked for Daredevil comics. I still live near-by and occasionally pass on my way home.
from thisendup :
i just read your entry and i love it so much. it helps that you realize i'm not delusional for thinking that he's love but stupid... i miss hanging out with you. stupid class.
from rdhdprincess :
Poor Thisendup, I'm gonna go give her a hug. Stupid boys! What you say is all true. Sadly.
from ittybittycat :
Thanks a bunch for leaving me a note! :) that's cool that you and thisendup used to a theatre geek. About you question, the play that my school is doing is the musical "The Pajama Game." I'm an extra in it, but I have two whole line in it. For me, thats a big accomplishment than the musical I was apart of last year. Take Care and thanks again for the note!
from poppyfish :
Wow, you think I look a bit like Scarlet? Best. Compliment. Ever. I am fucking in love with the girl. Damn. Thanks!
from legalbeagle :
That's SO an accomplishment, though. *pat*pat*pat* (that's me, helping pat you on the back) Stress from money is the worst stress of all - when it goes away, the peace is delicious, ain't it?
from rdhdprincess :
Men can be such jerks sometimes. I'm sorry sweetie, I wish I had a solution for you. OR at least I wish that we lived in the same city and I could torment him for you. That would help a little, right? Or torment her? Hey, can I have your mailing address? I promise that I'm not an axe murderer or anything!
from littlebub :
Hey darlin. I just have to say that I was purusing your profile and came upon what you wrote about me under the link to my diary. I don't know if it's hormones or what- but you totally made me want to cry. Thank you for your sweet comment. It made my day. :)
from rdhdprincess :
Ooh! OOh! That filling/tooth/gum combination just gave me the oogies! I loved the movie as well, by the way. My 34 year old self and K's 32 year old self actually rented it just for us. We are a little weird. Anyways, thanks for the note. You are just the best note giver around, always makes me smile. I love "Plush" that is a great idea! Can we have lots of red clothes, please? Shame on you for not buying the right shade of pink! That is so very important for a little girl. Although you are right, just sparkly is probably better for every day. Have you introduced her to the flavored Lip Smackers yet? Um, I still buy those. Cotton candy pink! Maybe I should send them a makeup care package?! What fun!
from thehour :
okay that last bit there... um... EWWW!
from iustitia :
"what’s wrong with the gum I am chewing is that there are pieces of my tooth and filling in it." Ew! ew! ew!
from kristintracy :
I have always wanted to be a part of an entourage. Seriously. We just need some people to sprinkle us with the appropriate items (snow, leaves, etc.) as we walk along.
from ittybittycat :
I love that song by Jet. It just makes wanna get up and bounce around the place. I really like your diary. Hope you don't mind me adding you to my buddy list. :)
from iustitia :
The Beagle got her job, so now you must hurry up & get well, because it's sushi time!! Get! well! quickly!
from rdhdprincess :
I knew that I loved you! I, too am addicted to MTV. Between Nick & Jessica and Dave & Carmen, the whole Ozzy family, and all the Real Worlds and Challenges, I am taping now! Taping. MTv. SO I don't miss anything. How sad it that? They replay everything a thousand times, but still, HAVE to have it, just in case. :) Oddly, I like Veronica, but hate Trishelle. They are both kinda whorey, selfish girls, but for some reason I like one and hate the other. Maybe because V seems at least up front and real and T is such a snively little brat. Who knows! Enough! HAve a good weeek!
from aliboomboom :
I just read your diary for the first time and it's hilarious. MTV has swept me in yet again too. I can't wait for the Inferno to start. I agree though that it sucks that Adam and Theo are not coming back. I've been in love with Theo from day one. He's gorgeous and his body (to quote Elka) is like a well oiled machine. I think that they bring back people that make drama and that is why Theo and Adam can't be on every challenge. Veronica however can be becasue she knows good t.v. I like her, she has great taste in clothes and make up and she always looks great regardless of the mission. Anyways I am addicted to. I can't wait to see how poor little Trishelle handles Kendall dating Mike. Oh well. I also love Dave and Carmen, that show is so cute and they are so real. Anyways I just wanted to let you know that I stopped in to read and that you're not the only MTV addict out there!!
from ursamajor :
I totally thought that Darkness video was a spoof a la Spinal Tap until I heard the song played on the local radio. I'm frightened and intrigued all at the same time. It's so damn catchy.
from legalbeagle :
I'm all about The Darkness!!!! Anyone who gives a Bay City Rollers-type thumbs up at the end of their video is okay in my book.
from freaktard :
I LOVE spoilers. For some reason I love when people spoil the movie or the show for me, because then I'll know what will happen and I only watch the show to see it in action.
from onewetleg :
just remove the batteries and the furbies will be quiet as mice. quieter even. there is a way to put them into deep sleep but i can't remember it off-hand. google 'furby instructions.' love,
from rdhdprincess :
No! Not Marlena! Oh my God, that's actually pretty cool. I must go read the spoiler you linked to now. Thank you, by the way. I think I will make a little bet with K tonight, he thinks it's John. Don't tell, I might just get a little massage out of this one! Ha! Have a great week sweetie!
from devian :
omg! i can't believe the SALEM SERIAL KILLER IS MARLENA! i'm such a bitch for saying this in your notes, but i feel--hell, i know who it is now! hahahahaha! i can't believe this one! let's see how it gets explained.
from poppyfish :
Yeah, true ... he was mine for the taking ... how bizarre is that. I'm still reeling a bit.
from rdhdprincess :
I am proud of you and how strong and productive you are being. I, too, am hooked on RW San Diego, except I hate, hate, hate the girl, I forgot her name now! Um, purple hair, piercings, got so drunk the first night that she tried to jump the guy in the hot tub? Her. I have this feeling she will be whining the whole season. The guys, though. Not bad. You're right, not wonderful, but not bad. I like the bartender woman. I am so bad at names today! Must stop typing now. I wish you a great day and pretty, new lipgloss!
from littlebub :
Oh yeah-- you should totally get out there for "exploits". No desire for a relationship required. :)
from thisendup :
by not e-mailing you i may accomplish the things that i need to do. it's a damn win-win situation. i hate business jargon for all it's worth, but i love you.
from legalbeagle :
It sucks being a grown-up. I, after 37 years, have started balancing my checkbook. Sometimes, you have to just go, "Fuck it - I'm gonna be responsible!" then actually follow up and DO it. That's the fun part.
from fargahar :
No notes from mommylap...NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! :)
from iustitia :
In my volunteering I do a lot of debt counseling. The main thing I tell people, that it's tough to remember sometimes: being in debt doesn't make you a bad person! There are a couple of easy first steps you can make. Call your student loan co. and ask how you can get a hardship deferment - explain that you don't have the income to service the debt right now. (If you have more than one student loan, consolidate and then defer!) With the daycare issue, can the people in their billing/accounting dep't adjust your account to reflect the correct am't? Then can you get your caseworker on it? They need to pay up what they owe! And since you & Scott took out the loan together, he is equally liable for the debt... next time the collectors call, give them his number! ;)
from rdhdprincess :
If it helps, when I used to live in an apartment and the dumpster was a million miles on the other side of the complex, I would put my trash bags in my truck and drive it there. Once I put it in and went to work completely forgetting the trash until the smell invaded the car seveal days later. It was summer time. Bad thing. I admire your detachment to such things sweetie. It will all be okay. As for the cable and daycare fiasco's I would dispute it on my credit report and most likely they will take it off. Big hugs!
from legalbeagle :
I care what mommylap thinks. Keep raising that hand, girl. And don't let that evil man put bad thoughts about yourself into your head - you can do that on your own, just like every other woman! SNARF!
from rdhdprincess :
Me again! I never shut up. Anyways, I was wrong, I got this feeling that you were just itching for some trouble! Or maybe excitement, which is always good. I know that you aren't a drama queen because I can tell what a good Mommy you are. Anyways, my theory for what to do in the down time? Pampering, lots of pampering!
from rdhdprincess :
Nice new layout. I may be weird, but I am enjoying the peace and quiet. I love soap operas (Days of our Lives) on t.v., but hate them in my personal life. I sound so boring! Maybe I am boring. Am I boring? I think I am. See what you did to me?! I have to go do something extraordinary now-
from thisendup :
i love the new template. my only request would be that you add a way to back up one entry... that way when i get behind i don't have to go to your archive. does this make sense?
from fargahar :
I love him...I miss him so much. Todd was my fave and this whole Walker/Todd thing is so lame. I am glad that he stood up for his character and left though because he hated the storylines.
from fargahar :
The funniest thing and I dunno about other people but in general I know what is going on on all soaps. I know about all the supercouples on other soaps. When the awards come though I root for my soap which hardly wins anything. I nearly shit my pants when they won best daytime drama a few years ago. I was giddy for days.
from onewetleg :
fantastic template, and gorgeous kid! i'm not sure is i would feel good about taking her furbies. well, maybe i could get over it. i don't know why they marketed those things to kids. they really take alot of patience and care. or alot of not touching. and they get freekin' sick. you have to nurse them back to health. well, nice template. im proud of you. love,
from iustitia :
"I like your clothes" - she got it right that time! Wow, that kid's got some big blue eyes. Gorgeous!
from legalbeagle :
I dig it. The River Rats at De would be proud.
from chicknamedal :
I lika the template! You should email me the font so I can install it and see it in all it's greatness.
from iustitia :
Wow, I'm so in awe of your design skills! And a great pic of one of my favorite Mpls landmarks. :) I like the font style, but the font size seems a little big in the entry section. Maybe take that down a point or two? But hey, it looks amazing!!
from thecritic :
Wow I am in awe of your template making goodness! I really like the font 'cause it kind of reminds me of my own. In fact it might be the same type of font but I'm just too stupid to realize it. I love the picture too but I used to go to Catholic school so that might explain why. Haha The only thing I would suggest is possibly doing something with the picture so that the yellow doesn't show through on the right side. But that might be hard and I know nothing about html. So I'll just walk out and give you an A+ and a gold star.
from devian :
you know, i sit and think the same things sometimes...like: isn't there something better i could be doing than sitting on the pc? think of it this way: you are growing a skill that most people (like me) wish they had the patience to really aquire. this is DESIGN, honey--you're a DESIGNER NOW! that is TIME WELL SPENT! :) i love you!
from devian :
you did this template?! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! i think it's AWESOME! that picture is so freaking great, but i think it takes on an even greater significance because your dad took it. i think you did a fucking awesome job! i just may harass you to make ME a template, TEMPLATE GODDESS!
from devian :
i love you even more because you would be a "wilco" song...of course, if i were to be a wilco song, i'd be: "ashes of american flags".
from devian :
you are SOOO corduroy (sp???)! and i love cancers and tend to surround myself with them...my boyfriend, my mother...i'm always learning to get in touch with my emotions more through my cancer friends ;)
from rdhdprincess :
Aw, I'm glad you had a nice time, sweetie! You are definitely a blessing to their family.
from kristintracy :
SINGULA - with the power to remain happily solitary in the face of so much couply coupleness. Glad you enjoyed the banner & the beatdown pictures. I watched X-2, X-Men United on xmess eve, and after that, I kept doing fight poses and threatening my family. My X-Men name: BAROMITRA - with the power to crush people or explode them via changes in atmospheric pressure, boil water at room temperature, etc. (I'm such a dork.)
from rdhdprincess :
How about "Strong, secure, woman!" Not so good for super hero title, but good for you! That is a blessing and shows alot about you. I was that way before I got married (at 33) and all my friends who were so lonely and just couldn't stand being without a man for a day just drove me crazy! You are wonderful, and I will definitely be at the MAC counter right beside you, in spirit! I wish I could be in person, what fun we could have! Enjoy and you have to fill me in on the goods!
from thisendup :
how about 'bad mamma jamma' which has nothing to do with your super powers. i just think that you are mighty cool and therefore i was just using this as an excuse.
from bloodsun :
yo! i've been trying to leave you gbook messages all day, but SMGB.com hates me with a passion...anway, northampton is a glorious place to live in or work in and i can totally see myself living there one day. wouldn't that be odd if you DID take the job? our paths may have crossed in the "real" world ;)
from rdhdprincess :
Wow, you're right. She did not deserve such a graceful act from you. You are a bigger and better person, good for you! Maybe your graciousness towards her will allow for her to treat your kids with more kindness. It can't hurt anyways! You are remarkable.
from onewetleg :
furbies? you have furbies? i love those things. any spares you have you can send my way. i have 19 now. hope to get alot more in the future. they are collectible, just not very. i've seen them go for $12 on ebay. any way, if you want to make some sort of trade, i would love to have them. happy boxing day. love,
from kristintracy :
hey girl. yes, i am very excited that i have my template back. rock. for only $18.99, so much happiness, for real.
from onewetleg :
who wants to fart in my vagina. classic. when i had me stepson i taught him the correct words for that stuff. one day we were watching the news and they said something about millions of people in china. he laughed so hard he fell off the couch. when i asked him what was so funny he said 'how can millions of people fit in a woman's CHINA?' awww. he was five. happy day. love, jj
from rdhdprincess :
Heee! I laughed so hard that I almost peed My pants! I'm sorry, but staring at them from the bench and defiantly peeing her pants? That's my kind of girl! I love her! But yeah, from an adult standpoint I can see how that would be bad. And yay for her calling her vagina a vagina! I am so jealous, my dear! I think that I would give my right arm for a child! Merry Christmas Sweetie, and thanks for the sweet words!
from goldieknox03 :

Thank you for your note of encouragement - Scott and I are going to head to an informational meeting and several people have recommended Children's Home and Family Services.

Great entry about Curt. He is truly a Martin Scorcese character walking around in real life - no wonder we love him so damn much. Like those characters, like Johnny Boy or Travis or Henry Hill, it just saps my energy to be around him anymore. He's one of those people where an online friendship would be the best way to go for me. But Curt - on the Internet? SHYAH! That'll be the day-hey-hey...

Hello. I found your diary through one of my friends (did that make sense?). Anyways, I like you diary. Tis funny yet wise. I like the layout too. I hope you have a happy Turkey Day
from mom-on-roof :
Now THAT's what I'm TALKIN' about! Thanks for saying all the things I couldn't say to that, that, that, PERSON! YOUUUUUUU ROOOOCK SISTER!!! I have to be all polite, and I'm thinking, this chick is in denial of her body type here. ANd I called her fat about 652 times. In my head. Have to maintain decorum. Class. Diplomacy. Complete Suckage. You made my day though!
from onewetleg :
thanks for the email. i think im really over the whole thing. (:~:)~(:~:)~(:~:)~:) love,
from fargahar :
I am not sure the whole "flirty" thing is a whole stigma that guys have created to allow them to be jealous or think we like them more than we do. Flirtaciousness (is that a word?) is just a womans nature.
from thisendup :
after careful consideration, i'm going to second what the beagle said. i do like that 'the fella' said he's dead inside. i personally get drawn to that because i feel the person is being honest. but it's more likely that i likes 'em good and messed up. keep on dating, lap. you're damn good at it.
from legalbeagle :
My butt is twitching, too (thanks for the visual Karli!), so I think it can be a concern but not a CONCERN, ya know? I also think the "lack of sparks" thus far thing is possibly a very, very, very GOOD thing - i.e. this is possibly a relationship based on friendship, trust, respect, knowledge, and humor instead of hormones. Many times, getting into something slowly makes for one long burn...
from mom-on-roof :
Thanks for the kind words! I read your note, and I thought, hmmm, mommylap, why hasn't she been updating lately. And then I saw that I don't have you in my favorites. Doh! (homer simpson noise) Am rectifying immediately, and will have to backtrack through to see what I missed. Loved your entry RE diaryland, it is a comfort to know you're not alone and you're not crazy. Well, YOU'RE not crazy, the jury's still out on me.
from onewetleg :
i am in the middle of an ethical dillemma. the image used on the laparmy diaryring. it was made by the hernandez bros, am i right? but it was used without permission. am i also right? i have been enlightned by wench77 about copyright enfringement and now i feel bad about having it on my page. waaah. what can we do? i would kick my own ass if i could. or if it would do any good. how do you feel about this? love,
from legalbeagle :
That was an AWESOME entry!!! Try to have fun tonight and not stress.
from fargahar :
Hey...just wanted to say I enjoy the same thing about Diaryland. I enjoy that I find supporters of my reality...which is sometimes all a big fantasy in my head. Makes me seem not so crazy.
from thisendup :
i'll be back soon and we can bump our heads into the walls together. i miss you!
from onewetleg :
...very strange and off topic, but i went to your back story link and then clicked on the notes and got 'yourusername's notes. it strikes me as funny because when i first got my guestbook i was hooked up with yourusername's guestbook. do you think this kind of thing happens to yourusername alot? perhaps it wasn't such a good idea to go with yourusername as a username. hmm. anyway, hi, how are ya? i joined the laparmy diaryring. i see i'm in good company. i think me, you, chaosdaily and officegal could pretty much kick anyone's butt that needed it. ha! love jj
from thisendup :
i thought it was funny, i always wanted to sponsor something. being a sponsor on your diary is almost as good as eating chocolate! i dig being obi-wan. unfortunately, i've got a darth vader temper today...

from rdhdprincess :
Hey sweetie! I am sitting here sending you good date vibes and hoping you are having the best of times! I hope you have knee socks on! I'll be back to read all about it! I enjoyed your entry, by the way. You did an amazing thing.

it's funny but you sounded so warm and caring on my notes - by that i mean, what the ?!?! i think that you need to review your compassion angle for your devoted readership. yes, ma'am
from thisendup :
where is your update? i beg you, please update. there are so many of us waiting for this...
from chicknamedal :
Oh, I am SO IN. Where do I sign up?
from thisendup :
i will expect that you go to the comic book store again... i have expectations for you. you must meet or exceed them. you must get tarted up... otherwise i will not let you help me with that little x-mas project.
from rdhdprincess :
Well yay for happiness and confidence and being your truest self! Good for you! You can't ever let yourself forget how wonderful you are! Mwah!
from chicknamedal :
Notes for our chorus -- let's make it a joyful chorus. The rest can be a variety of styles, but the chorus should be joyful and, perhaps, triumphant. Glad you're enjoying the reading. Love your diary. And think it is GREAT you got tarted up just to go to comic store no matter what the excuse. And hey, he may be a really excuse...

VTO will affect your average hours (think vacation time, PH, bennies) but besides that, if i could VTO you would see my ass out the door... now! i would like the daddyman's address so that i can drive over after a night of drinking and make a big mess on his lawn, repeatedly. all hail king of the losers...
from rdhdprincess :
Yeah, some form of public humiliation is definitely in order. Something good. But what?? Good luck sweetie!
from rdhdprincess :
Hmmm....that makes sense about the werewolf. Happy Halloween!
from rdhdprincess :
Wow, I think I need to go back and read that again. There's something I need to learn there....
from thisendup :
i was going to try and write about the change in my emotional weather but now feel that i would be playing a 2nd to your fiddlin'... still. it's important to have more than one in a decent ensemble?
from rdhdprincess :
That is the greatest attitude. I know you will come out of this on top! You know, I thought I felt a little "lift in spirit" yesterday! It must have been you buying the MAC! I am honored, thank you. What did you get?? I shall live vicariously thru you! They are the best. And so are you!
from thisendup :
i got some things accomplished... some. are we 'hanging' tomorrow?
from thisendup :
zoombeenie agrees with you that the critic and i only differ in gender... ooh, saw note about kill bill & will have to comment on that as well.
from poppyfish :
I completely agree with you, pumpkin. I, too, quite enjoyed the gore in Kill Bill, and then I turned around and cried like a baby at Finding Nemo. So what are we, then? Boys or girls? Maybe we're the best of both worlds!
from wolfmusic :
Each life experience teaches you a lesson and I appreciate you sharing yours with us. You and your children are in my prayers. *hugs*
from thisendup :
listen here you. i have never felt so profoundly drawn to another person in my entire life. i say this in the manner that i wish that i had more of whatever it is that makes you tick. i willingly state that my own physical doubts have taken me down a peg or two (or three or four - love being honest, don't i?). i would hate to think that someone who i would i loathe to part with each day would feel a bit down and out over something that none of us even give a fig about. your inner beauty DOES shine through. we can polish up our outsides because the infomercials show us how but our insides will never look like yours... that's the god's honest truth. i don't bullshit those i honor.
from legalbeagle :
The day I took the LSAT, I downloaded "I Have Confidence" and played it LITERALLY fourteen times in a row. I guess it works!
from poppyfish :
Damn, well, thank you for that incredible boost in self-esteem. You should come with a prescription! Ouch, I'm corny. Ahem. Yes. So. You made my day! I honestly wish I could believe you, because it would make me oh-so-happy. But I worry that perhaps I am not quite as magnetic as you made me sound. We shall see, we shall see. If I ever work up the courage to, like, smile. Or something.
from rdhdprincess :
Oh yeah, bored and broke is an awful combination. When I get "cloudy" I tend to not want to leave my house, too. Then when I do emerge I am 3 pounds heavier! I love that word, I'm gonna steal it, ok? I will now be cloudy instead of sad or whatever. Well, hopefully not. Hopefully I will remain happy and not cloudy, but when it happens, it will be cloudy. Ok with you? I hate to admit it but my enchilada recipe did infact, have cream of chicken soup. How did you know?? I have never heard of that before! All of the ones I could find with the red sauce had to have the tortillas dipped in hot oil and that was just too much work. Your fajitas cracked me up! But you see, I am obsessive, once I get an idea.... Now I have to go decided what else to put into my peanut butter fajitas for lunch! Thank you ever so much!
from dani-lou :
Wow, talk about cleaning Queen. My house is in need of cleaning. Of course, with children running in and out, it feels like a lost cause. Hugs, Dani.
from thisendup :
i know, i know. i DO have depression so self-hate is probably closer. i wasn't trying to be funny, i was actually hating myself. i'll do my best to tidy up before i leave. miss you and i'll be back this weekend. you have to help me with my costume, d'accord?!
from legalbeagle :
Today everything IS better! I still feel like crying, but that's just hormones (A Hallmark commercial would do me right just about now.) Love, love, love you.
from thisendup :
guess that your guestbook doesn't like my html tags either... will i ever learn? miss you!
from dizzy-dame :
Hey, this is Frazzled Imp. Due to certain people in my personal life not having the common sense that god gave a banana feeling the urge to delve into my journal, I’ve decided to pack my bags, and move to a new location. Since this move isn’t intended to thwart my regular readers who have nothing to do with me on an intimate basis, I’m just making the rounds and letting you know where I’ve gone. You’re still welcome to come read, if you’d like. You can find me at: http://dizzy-dame.diaryland.com Take care!
from rdhdprincess :
Oh yeah, how's the new job?
from rdhdprincess :
Love the new layout, and your updates! I'll be back!
from wifemotherme :
I am sorry. I read every single update. I am just hella lazy about leaving notes and guestbook loven
from rdhdprincess :
Count me in the tongue-sticker-outters! And good luck-
from thisendup :
tongue sticking out - you will have visualize as my little html tags do me no good. i miss you sweetie but i know that good times are a comin'
from legalbeagle :
Tongue way, way out - NYAH, NYAH, NYAH!!!!!
from smilefactory :
Why am I sitting here with my tongue sticking out?
from sandydahling :
Oops- make that "hard" into "easy" in my last note. I completely changed the wording of my note and forgot to change those words around. Jeez, sometimes I think I'll never be able to pay attention fully.
from sandydahling :
Just sending a hug to you. Your strength is admirable. It's not hard being and doing everything, is it?
from thisendup :
every time i leave you a note i try to put one of my little text tags in... they do not work and i feel like crawling away from my keyboard. your new layout is beautiful, which is fitting. a pleasure to look at just like the woman updating it. miss you!
from thisendup :
i'm glad that you are still posting and i can keep tabs on you. the little ditty you left in my note box has had me high all day. i consider myself one fortunate sidekick to have you in my life. i <b>am</b> sidekick status now... right?
from iustitia :
hang in there... stand firm in your resolve!
from wifemotherme :
You know I catch myself reading your diary like one would read a really good book. I hate to put it down -I am always looking for the next "chapter". Your a talented writer and I envy that but more so I envy your out look and self composer when things are out of whack. BTW thank you so much for the note about the "pastduerent" ring. I really got a chuckle out of that just when I needed it most!
from xevelle :
wow it takes a lot of willpower and courage to give your own child up for adoption, even if you know she'll be in good hands. i really admire that. my cousin is adopted, and i don't think she'd have been any happier with anyone else. i hope for the best for you and your daughter. take care.
from wifemotherme :
I hope you have fun. I really admire you in the courage and honesty that shines thru in your diary.
from frazzled-imp :
I wanted to thank you for that incredibly sweet note you left me, and to tell you how much I've been enjoying your journal. I love the way you write, and how much emotion comes through in it. It's been a pleasure getting to know you through it.
from kristintracy :
saturday night fever is one of my all time favorite movies. he does, indeed, eat 2 slices of pizza on top of one another AND FOLDED IN HALF!!! i taught myself the hustle by watching the first club scene. now, i do it every time i go out, because they always play "night fever" by the bee gees in the lame, annapolis clubs....
from thisendup :
lady, i hear you. i want you to know that i think that you are really strong. having financial troubles doesn't indicate what kind of person you are. i don't care what it feels like... it's just not true. i'm thinking about you.
from dani-lou :
Hey! I'm glad you like my site. I hope things are going well. Things go be such a mess sometimes. Hugs, Dani.
from wifemotherme :
I want you to know that I admire the hell out of you! Honestly you have faced some tough decisions and had the guts to make the choices that would end up being most beneficial to your family. I knew with ever fiber of my being that I should have held my daughter back in school and I let the school and family talk me out of doing what was right. All these years later in high school and I still watch my baby girl struggle some where in the middle. Never ever second guess that you did the right thing.
from sandydahling :
Scarlet letters? A for me too. Abortion. And a nice G for guilt. Don't forget the S for shame. And lastly, an H for hope.
from wifemotherme :
I just wanted to second what Almost just said. I know the note was for her but I needed to hear that too! Thanks@
from almostaflake :
Wow - Your guestbook entry- at my diary- knocked my socks off! Thanks for the encouragment Mommylap!!!
from poppyfish :
Thinking of your invisible Carrie-like support and offers of revenge helped carry me through the day. :)
from thisendup :
I love you and I love seeing you climb your way back. It's not easy and the benefits aren't the kind that show up immediately. Just know that I will be here to help and to share your victories. You are wonder woman!
from legalbeagle :
Daddyman: You're not organized enough & you've always been there when I needed you! Mommylap: You haven't been there for me...oh, and you're a crackhead! Hmmmm....who has the better argument? GEE, I WONDER. GO MOMMYLAP!!! RAH RAH RAH!!!
from flyinby :
i dunno about fushia. i thought of anxiety as more of an . . . orange. *shrug* red is angry, fushia is a pink type color - more of a embarrassed color. *shrug* i'm such the pain in the arse! sorry!
from myhorizons :
TY again, for joining my findbalance diaryring.
from myhorizons :
TY for joining my over25 diaryring!
from kristintracy :
Hey! Thanks for the note. I'm glad that you enjoyed my little thing (for lack of a better word). Also, thank you for having Tony Soprano on your older entries page. I am APED over James Gandolfini.
from legalbeagle :
PAROLE ON A STICK!
from devian :
thank you for your note! i'm so glad someone understands my perspective. i still can't help but feel monsterous for what i'm doing. i'm really afraid that wherever i end up bringing her, she will end up being put to sleep. it just kills me.
from poppyfish :
Yeah, I had to leave out a lot of cool characters, like the From Hell guy, and Ed Wood, and the Crybaby character, etc. I just chose six of my favorites and went with them.
from legalbeagle :
FUCKING HILARIOUS - and I end up screwing Gilbert Grape. What the fuck!
from dani-lou :
Yes, those meat eaters decided to lay into me. Very unfortunate for me. Thanks for adding me to your favs list. I tried leaving you a note in your guestbook, but the link didn't work. I like the design on your site. I'll be back. Hugs, Dani.
from poppyfish :
Man, if Plato wrote about a pretty-boy Hollywood orgy, I'd be all over him. ;) Seriously, Plato isn't that bad. But I have to read half the book by next Tuesday, and it's tough going. You know how very ... verbal he is.
from thisendup :
I like the course of action you are taking with daddyman. Just wish so much better for you. I'm just waiting for the day when we find the guy who knows enough to worship you 24/7. He may never show up because guys are dolts, for the most part. In the meantime, vent away. That's plenty to be pissed about.
from poppyfish :
Your six-year-old sounds like my kind of kid. I was that way, too, always liking cuddly things and Disney movies. OK, so I used to like lipgloss. It was PLAY lipgloss. Anyway, yeah. I can only imagine what I'll be like when (if) I'm ever the mother of a wee kiddie-poo. I'll probably lock it in a closet with happy movies and storybooks until it turns eighteen or something. I'm gonna be the least cool mother around. :)
from thecritic :
Aww see I look and spoons and see myself how I really am... guess I'm a twisted monkey.
from devian :
as always, your diary is inspirational--great recent entry. i've had similar epiphanies myself lately. thanks for the note! dusty really is rocking my world. i'm listening to her greatest hits cd now ("wishin' and hopin'")
from poppyfish :
Thanks for joining the Jack Sparrow diaryring, matey! Yo ho and all that!
from thisendup :
I'm catching up with you. You've made it interesting but I would have to second the comment about you being too hard on yourself. just because you do this in an entertaining way doesn't mean it's justified or right. However, you will probably catch me doing the same damn thing. i'm glad that you e-mailed me and recommended starting a diary. now i have a ritual to my day that doesn't involve nicotine. and i get to keep in some form of contact with you. much appreciated.
from legalbeagle :
Family can be VERY selfish and weird sometimes - believe me, even with (or because of) the "Minnesota Kennedys" it SUCKS ASS. Make your own family out of your friends and yourself and happiness comes more often because it's not "supposed" to the way it is with "family". Ya know?
from devian :
hey there...not that this may make a bit of difference to you, but i think you are WAY too hard on yourself. god knows i've never been exactly in your position, but i've done things that (to everyone else around me) seemed crazy and horrible and you know what--i dealt with it, but didn't measure what i did against anyone else's life. the decisions you make are made and they are made for reasons you understand. no one else has to accept or understand them. you just have to forgive yourself and realize that you did what you did for your reasons. i'm probably putting my nose where it doesn't belong (one of my favorite pastimes), but i just thought i'd share that with you anyway.
from devian :
hey there! thank you for adding me as a favorite. i'm very self-aware, and yes--very self-obsessed. i've just come to terms with that. :)-

Sadly, I am out of Diet Dr Pepper right now. Sigh.
