from oh-sweet-pea :
Uh, it's obvs been ages & ages since I've checked dland and so sorry to have heard this news. Take care of yourself and I hope with all my heart that everything turns just swell in the end. Hugs!
from emeraldtiger :
xoxoxo...it's good to know that there are people who can relate to all of this. (although i just absolutely hate the reason you're able to relate). it *will* get better. i've been worried about you, hoping you're holding up ok these days and taking good care of yourself. {{big hugs}}
from myra-lee :
Ugh, no to lymphoma. I'm so sorry to hear about this. It makes no sense. I too would freak out and peruse the internet, but to quote Eric Schmidt, "it's a sewer out there," so I hope you aren't allowing yourself to be traumatized by uninformed publications on the internets. I'm hoping for the very best prognosis, speedy treatment, and full recovery. Please keep us posted. I was so excited to see mrs-roboto in red, and so unnerved and sad to read the news.
from xxholding-on :
hi i saw you were online and i really wanted the vote from diaryland towards a contest i joined. It's a coach marketing contest and i need as many votes as i can get, please help! http://www.brickfish.com/Pages/PhotosAlbums/PhotoView.aspx?picid=975395_34070543&pid=2767347&scid=452
from kayemess :
I appreciate knowing old skool style but I hate the news. Thoughts, all of the best, most hopeful kind, are beaming your way - keep me/us in the loop so we can cheer you along, okay? Cliche maybe, but it really isn't fair at all...
from emeraldtiger :
oh wow. i'm sorry. i'm at a loss for words, b/c this is a topic that has been on my mind recently, so it's doubly difficult to come here and see your latest news. it's been quite some time since i was last in touch with you, but just know that you have well-wishes coming from here. i wish you lots of strength and courage to face the rough road ahead. back during the height of our diaryland days, i always admired your energy, spirit, and strength. i sincerely hope that those things will only help you as you take the necessary steps to regain your health.
from arajane :
oh wow. i am so sorry to hear about this. i know i haven't seen you in forever, but i'll be thinking about you and hoping that you get well and stay well and beat that fucking lymphoma, which has no right at all being in your body. xoxo.
from heidiann :
This is weird, I know. But you popped into my head and I wondered how you're doing. If you're blogging somewhere new. I miss reading about your life. I hope all is well. If you ever get bored and want to drop me a line... You can catch me at livin.the.thug.life at gmail.com
from theshivers :
ok, but where are YOU?! email me! rachelATwritegrrrl.com (please!)
from emeraldtiger :
i had to change the locks recently, so once again, you have been issued a new password. you are missed out here. hope all's well.
from tater-fay :
thanks, sweetie!! With all this trauma, I BETTER win the lottery damn it!:)
from theshivers :
sorry, i think you need to register to use the site.... http://www.sacbee.com/content/business/story/14304319p-15182221c.html
from emeraldtiger :
you have been assigned a new password. (sorry for changing it around so soon after sending the other one). xo,
from kstyle :
hi there! i am an old friend of k. maria's, from diaryland. i was wondering if you have a current email for her. we have lost touch, and her dland and comcast addresses are both dead ends. if you can help me, my email is mkaro@cox.net thanks! michael
from emeraldtiger :
OK, i'll send it to mrs-roboto@diaryland. since d-land e-mail gets flakey sometimes, let me know if you don't get it, and i'll send it to a different e-mail address if you have one.
from demoderby :
see, all i see is the horrible personality because i don't find him physically attractive and therefore wasn't distracted by his good looks. it is true though, that if i find a jerk to be cute, i'll generally cut him some slack. haha. we're terrible!
from demoderby :
damn, i'm an idiot and just left a note in my own notes section! hahaha.
from theshivers :
thanks ...who knows, maybe i just need a vacation? or a trip to the zoo...something fun...i guess i'll find out...
from demoderby :
i find anthony bourdain to be a arrogant, self-important asshole who thinks he's got a bunch of "street cred" because he used to be so punk. a friend recommended i watch his show a couple years back because she loved it so much. so i watched as he basically went to a restaurant (i believe it was in vietnam, but i may be remembering it wrong) where he was treated as an honoured guest and offered their very fanciest dishes and then proceeded to make fun of the restaurant, their culture and the food as it was served to him. later in the episode, he dissed vegetarians saying that he "feels sorry for them" because of their "limited palates" or some such nonsense. needless to say, i'm holding a grudge.
from emeraldtiger :
hey, thanks for the note! yes, moving is a huge pain! like you, i'm so busy i'm having trouble finding time to keep up on d-land. but i AM still around & glad about the long weekend. hope you find time to throw some salmon on the grill for the holiday!
from oh-sweet-pea :
thanks for the early birthday wish! personally, i wouldn't worry over your lack of motivation regarding your fitness goals. i'm sure you'll get back in the swim of things once you get some of those house worries of your chest! good luck :)
from tater-fay :
thanks sweetie! Did someone put an ancient curse on my family? (I'm half joking, half serious) because when is this fucking shit gonna STOP?? I'll take all of your virtual hugs, thanks!
from kungfukitten :
My neighbors two doors down have chickens. In Portland you're allowed to have like four chickens, six sheep and two goats within the city limits. It's crazy. However, it's kind of fun in the summer to be drinking coffee on the front porch and listening to chickens do their chicken thing.
from theshivers :
i love that you got married at Graceland...we were married in a bar/nightclub....and yes, rude, thoughtless and a bit too princesss-y for my taste. Although I love my friend to pieces, I think that's what gets me the most, this notion that a wedding is an excuse to force as much attention your way as possible, to be a princess for a day (or a month, or nine months, whatever)...it's just kind of silly and narcissistic....
from theshivers :
i loev my old d-land buddies like you, but the site seriously needs some new life or something...and yet i can't walk away...it's like a country song...
from oh-sweet-pea :
it's far from vancouver -- an 8 hr drive, but i'm okay with that.
from oh-sweet-pea :
Yes, we've been going through the same city - country dilemna and we decided that in 3 years, we are moving out of the city and into Nelson or surrounding Nelson area (the Slocan Valley). It's got pubs, microbreweries, cool book stores, indie movies, etc and it's very left-wing politically & socially. And we can buy a home with acreage for the same place as a cramped 500 sq. ft. 1 bedroom apartment here. Decision made!
from lately :
My 5 pound dog requires more luggage than I do, so I can relate.
from f-i-n :
your template is lovely!
from oh-sweet-pea :
whoooo, good luck! i hope all the best in that your stress will pay off and you'll get a new, beautiful home. how exciting!
from tater-fay :
yea..it probably is too soon for me to be at work..my sister has only been dead for two weeks..but I can't really afford to miss time..I don't have PTO left and I've used my 5 days of bereavement pay...I do plan on leaving if it gets to be too much some days....
from theshivers :
re, end of the semester: Amen!
from ethelalcohol :
I'm still trying to figure out how to use that site. I think maybe I fixed the comments so that people can post to it - but that I can delete spammers. Here's a question for you, my training guru, do you still work out when you feel like you're getting sick? I can't tell if I'm just getting a cold or if its the start of another sinus infection. No fever, but I feel like doody. (That's right, I said doody) What do you usually do in situations like this?
from emeraldtiger :
it's hard for some people to keep up w/ swimming when it turns cold outside. but a perk of sticking with it year-round is that when the # of lap swimmers at your pool drops off, you get a lane all to yourself. ;-)
from ethelalcohol :
You are such an inspiration that I signed up to run a half-marathon. Its no triathlon but its a start. I started training 2 weeks ago but its hard. I don't know how you do it, getting up so early. I've been running after school but I need to start strength training as well. What is your program like?
from theshivers :
nice job on the article! As for the head, eh, i almost never like the heads that the copy editors choose...once i even called a person featured in a story i wrote to apologize for a particularly goofy one...but anyway, like i said - very nice job, you should be proud....
from theshivers :
i'd love a link to the article!
from emeraldtiger :
ps; i noticed the GB msg i just left a few minutes ago had lots of mistakse (typos). oops, sorry! its the vodka & champagne. i guess its unwise to sign onto d-land or sing guestbooks when drunk.
from ethelalcohol :
Re: Thanksgiving menu I have always wanted to try goose myself. It sounds so very Charles Dickens/James Joyce!
from theshivers :
everything sounds like it's going great - you always inspire me with all your projects and energy!
from ethelalcohol :
You know, slow and slutty does win the race! By the way, I love the idea of hula hooping for charity. I think I'm going to have to start my own hula hoop-a-thon just for the heck of it.
from kstyle :
oh i did...but i dunno if that email is current, i have a feeling she has a bunch of em too. i left a note, though and asked a few other people...i was wondering cuz here diary is locked, but i got in with password from the other one..yes maybe she's just very busy. thanks for the note. michael
from kstyle :
do you know what's up with k.maria??? have you heard from her?
from theshivers :
oh i feel your grad school pain - too much to do and NEVER enough time...but you will get through it, just keep your sights set on winter break so that you may have a little recovery time...
from oh-sweet-pea :
mmm, pumpkin bread sounds so like autumn! i'm excited about root vegetables and squash and it's good to hear that school can have it's bright moments. as for doubts, those are natural, right??!
from oh-sweet-pea :
it was so great meeting you!! i felt totally socially retarded that day but you were all so lovely and charming!
from emeraldtiger :
PS: the bike ride sounds awesome! when you get a chance, do tell us how it was after you crossed into canada. don't leave us hanging! ;-)
from oh-sweet-pea :
thanks for your good wishes. and i'm really glad you like the wedding cd. we actually put in a lot work on that one!
from theshivers :
sending good grad school thoughts your way - I'm sure it'll go swimmingly...
from oh-sweet-pea :
as far as i can tell, we will be in town that weekend! call me up!
from yelayna :
fingers and toes and all sorts of things crossed for you! Good luck!
from oh-sweet-pea :
good thoughts for grad school heading your way! and keep the stories and photos coming. yay!!
from oh-sweet-pea :
what a great entry!! i want to read part 2 right away! your ride is so inspiring and i made c read it too and we'll definitely do this ride sometime. it's too bad we couldn't meet up...i actually tried to call your hotel, but i guess your room wasn't in your name. sigh. next time!!
from make-it-stop :
I disappeared for a few months. And now I can no longer write in the same place. Who knew it would be a bad idea to tell my *husband* where I write? Anyway, I've moved http://thirstywit.diaryland.com (assuming you still remember who I am!). I've added you to my list already and hope to catch up on my reading soon. Hope all has been wonderful for you.
from oh-sweet-pea :
i want to send you our wedding cd -- i promise you it's not that boring! give me your address!!
from oh-sweet-pea :
thank you!! i want to hear details of your seattle-vancouver ride and i'm more than a little sad that i couldn't meet you at the finish line.
from theshivers :
re: betrayal and babies...no, not that's not odd at all.I completely understand/relate.
from caterwaul :
you just nearly made me cry with longing for that there cabin.
from myra-lee :
Oh god, that sounds so glorious! Sitting here in my cubicle, staring out the window at the Mary Kay headquarters across the street, I'm so longing for fireflies and running barefoot in a place with creeks. And bacon. Hooray for cabins in the woods! You are lucky I don't live closer because I would totally invite myself. Have fun!
from ethelalcohol :
Love the thoughtful head tilt as well as the swank new 'do you're sportin', grad student!
from ethelalcohol :
Love the thoughtful head tilt as well as the swank new 'do you're sportin', grad student!
from oh-sweet-pea :
thanks! coming from you, that's a real compliment!
from oh-sweet-pea :
that snapshot is from the seattle anthropologie window taken in february. it is my inspiration. i'm not going to silkscreen the leaves...instead i will applique them and add embroidered stems. once that is done, i will add cute shiny buttons. alas, they aren't sequins...but i sure do love them buttons!! i'm scared!
from caterwaul :
thanks for the congrats, yo!
from cruznmazrati :
Thank you so much for your words of wisdom for Sarah and I. You are an AMAZING PERSON!!!!! Your thirty minutes of selflessness meant more than words can say to us. Thanks again.
from shadowdress :
i agree--the feathered hair was the definition of hotness. a big congratulations on grad school and the scholarship, by the way.
from ethelalcohol :
The made up holidays are my favorite kind! They leave me free of all familial obligations and allow me to actually enjoy my day off. In honor of Brooklyn day (now known as Brooklyn-Queens day) I will be traveling to a far off land known as New Jersey where my day will be filled with adventures, great adventures, in fact! There will be drive thru safaris (just like Hemingway never did) and all sorts of thrills that can only be derived through mechanized fear. I can't wait.
from theshivers :
hooray for the scholarship! I know that's a big help, both mentally AND financially...and thanks for the sewing book tip...I'll check it out...
from gracieglass :
I'm so inspired by your bike ride- my triathlon training has been in the gutter because of working really long days. I also LOVE the skirt- thanks for putting the name of the pattern in there.
from theshivers :
thanks for the reminder to breathe - i think i was starting to turn blue...seriously...and speaking of seriously, your advice is really appreciated...sometimes it's hard to see the house for all the nuts and bolts...
from emeraldtiger :
*PS: just reading about "stinky" grosses me out! but...i think water workouts are such a great way to start the day! swimming is really the best. jumping/diving into a pool is so invigorating and refreshing (minus the shock of plunging into frigid lake washington, for you, i guess)! hmm, that reminds me: i'll need to find a way to practice open water swimming before july...
from emeraldtiger :
thank you for the b-day wishes!
from heidiann :
You know...I'm trying to hide the fact that I'm not working from my boss. Choking with laughter doesn't help my covert operation!! DAMN THAT STINKY FOR GIVING ME AWAY!
from theshivers :
Sure - above each of your Flckr pictures is a list of options including "all sizes" - click on this and then choose the size you want the photo to be. THEN it gives you the option to link to the photo OR use an HTML code that makes the photo show up on your journal page. Let me know if you have any problems finding / doing the needed steps...
from tater-fay :
Yea..I'm a big fan of Wim Wenders, in general. I think that "Wings of Desire" is, perhaps, my most favorite foreign film of all time (but there is a lot of stiff competition!)
from theshivers :
yayyyy! but of COURSE you did! congrats!
from yelayna :
HURRAH!!! Congratulations!!! Knew you would do it when you mentioned your swanky note taking technique!!! Well done and best of luck! xxx
from ethelalcohol :
Congratulations! I knew you would do it.
from emeraldtiger :
congratulations! yay, that is so awesome! of course, i'm not surprised, and after you described your interview, i had a good feeling it'd all work out. you really are amazing!
from theshivers :
oh if ONLY it was *the* Junkyard Dog...but alas it's just someone trying to earn that moniker with the rattiest overgrown, trash-strewn lawn you've ever seen...
from gracieglass :
I'm in Prospect Heights and I also went to school just outside of Boston (Wellesley).
from gracieglass :
The swim is going to be in the Hudson River. I live in Brooklyn- what part are you from?
from gracieglass :
hello- it was so great to get your messages. I LOVE your skirt- nice choice of colors. I am about to take a beginning sewing class in April, but I doubt I'll be making anything as cute as your skirt. I am going to do the New York City Triathlon (Olympic distance). The training for the running and bike portions has been good, but I haven't gotten in the pool very much.
from tater-fay :
Nope, I haven't seen "End of the Century" yet..I was suppposed to play at the little art cinema here, I'll have to see if it actually is yet or not (indie releases sometimes take AWHILE to get to this fucking stupid town)..I want to see it, though.
from theshivers :
you know, i've heard of people sending their realtor flowers after a deal goes through but I think I will owe *you* the flowers for all the words of encouragement you've given...seriously, it's meant a lot and helped to calm the nerves, so thank you, thank you, thank you!
from oh-sweet-pea :
i made a skirt just like that this weekend too! aline with a zipper! in fact, it also matches a kitchen (somebody's kitchen) as i made the skirt out of old kitchen curtains! nice skirt, i love the polkadots.
from ethelalcohol :
Great gams girl! With those legs, your plan B is completely within your grasp. I think I need to take a page from your book and start me some spring training (I'm at hibernating weight currently and its a hard habit to break) I love the skirt- its so spring-y. I'm still waiting to hear back from my tax guy - though I agree with you in theory about wanting to break even, this year I'm hoping for the extra cash since I purchased a lot o' stuff for school including my souped up iBook.
from ethelalcohol :
Brett was thinking that too. Is it more or less expensive to build your own? Land lots go for fairly cheap in PA. I just wasn't sure if it would be economically feasible. Though I do like the idea of building to my own specs.
from emeraldtiger :
that is great! i knew all along that your interview would go really well.
from yelayna :
I'm glad it all went so well and that you're having a lovely time :o) Must be something about spring!
from ethelalcohol :
Congratulations! I am so glad that it went well, and that my suggestion was a good one. It makes me so happy to have been a part of your blissful event! If I don't speak to you before then, have a happy Easter as well. XOXO
from oh-sweet-pea :
congratulations on kicking grad school ass! sounded like a fantastic interview. i also wanted to mention that your anniversary entry about how great pete was, was very very sweet. i wanted c to read it, to y'know, keep him on his toes! your weekend sounded lovely too. it'd be gay to end off with "you go girl", but i'll just "give the drummer some" (my kool keith quote).
from ethelalcohol :
PS - I would say somewhere in between suit and business casual. Like maybe, dress pants, button down shirt and cardigan instead of jacket or casual suit with non-button type shirt underneath. I hear you on groups - they suck. Its probably a good idea to suggest a role for yourself within the group - like volunteer to be the recorder, etc.
from ethelalcohol :
I didn't know it was your anniversary. Happy anniversary! You are my fitness guru. I so want to be you in my next life. As for StBuck's, I hate that I don't hate them enough to stop going to them. I swear they put crack in their frappucinos and that new hot chocolate...Its liquid heroin! It makes you sick to your stomach and yet you can't stop jonesin' for it.
from emeraldtiger :
PS: happy anniversary this weekend. you got married at such a pretty time of the year. i often dream of having a spring-time wedding one day, complete with a backdrop of cherry blossoms or something.
from yelayna :
Firstly - your tin ceiling is gorgeous. I've never seen anything like it - I think the closest is one of those guilded ceilings in ballrooms! (I sense a UK/US divide in ceiling decoration...) Secondly, after years of temping I've discovered hte best thing is smart black trousers with a smartish top, and take a jacket so you can put it on/off depending on what eeryone else is wearing. Alternatively, take two wildly differing outfits and stalk people going in, and get changed in the loos accordingly! ;o)
from kimgo :
CONGRATS on you & hubby. On the interview thing- I have invested in several casual suits that seem to cover a multitude of (sins, er situations) and what is great about them is that they are comfortable. Good luck with your grad process- it will be worth it!
from lately :
I wouldn't wear a full suit, but do wear some nice black pants and a nice shirt, possibly a button-down. That says "I mean business, but I'm not overdressed." You don't want to be the only one in khakis in a room full of black. Also, all school is anymore is group projects. I'm a junior in college and haven't had a single semester that I didn't have a group project. Good luck with everything!
from emeraldtiger :
what a gorgeous tin ceiling! good luck w/ the home improvements.
from the29th :
Lovely!
from rockadot :
i love what you are doing with your sewing machine!! i have been inspired to finally go back home and bring my sewing machine into the city!
from kimgo :
VERY nice stuff! i admire your handywork!
from ethelalcohol :
That purse is so cute - where did you get that pattern?
from ethelalcohol :
You're crafty!
from theshivers :
thanks for the super-kind note....that meant a lot to me, it really did.
from tater-fay :
OH WOW..lookie at what I found: go to this link: http://cgi.tripod.com/night_flight1/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl
from ethelalcohol :
You don't pay up front first?! I think that may be the craziest part of all!
from shadowdress :
happy birthday, mrs. R. !
from ethelalcohol :
I think I might cry, that was so sweet! Hope you had the happiest of birthdays...until the next one.
from oh-sweet-pea :
oh goodie! also restaurant suggestions would be good too...if that's not being too greedy with your insider scoop! email me at oh-sweet-pea@diaryland.com
from oh-sweet-pea :
thanks for the sympathy, it's nice to know it's out there!
from ethelalcohol :
I'm in vacation negotiations with Brett right now - I'll let you know for sure what are plans are (I'm also awaiting my summer grad schedule of classes). Congrats on your application - I agree that is very difficult line to straddle. As I will be needing my fingers over the next three months, I will, instead, light many candles in your honor. I may even go to one of those spooky Botanica/Santeria shops for one of those Religious candles emblazoned with the crucified Christ in all his bloody glory. If that doesn't do the trick...well, then I'm out of tricks. Sorry, I'm a one trick pony.
from yelayna :
Firstly: good luck, secondly - your new layout is gorgeous :) I've been away a while, so it may have been changed ages, but it's gorgeous!!!
from ethelalcohol :
Well, now I have to go to Tahoe just to play the Kenny Rogers machine! BTW, you aren't by chance going to Maachu Pichu are you? I've been vacillating back and forth between going to Europe and going to South America this summer. I know Europe will always be there and I can do that kind of stuff when I'm old but still, I'm somewhat embarrassed by the fact that I have yet to go there. On the other hand, MP is calling me.
from the29th :
Oh, how great is "Home Movies"? Finding out that was on dvd made me sooo happy.
from ethelalcohol :
Dying to hear about Tahoe! Hope you have a happy and healthy new year!
from myra-lee :
Thank you! I also banked on creating the eager beaver image. I don't start until Fall 2005, which feels so very far away. But I'm sure it'll be here before I can say "tort reform."
from myra-lee :
Oh, I love the sexy stocking! So cool! You should've been featured in Stitch 'n' Bitch Nation. I've been meaning to stop in here and give my two cents on the grad school applications: it DOES make a difference to apply early. I don't know if that's the case with all schools and all programs, but a lot of schools do rolling admissions and start letting people in way before the application deadline has even passed. And they have a lot more time to review your application when it's early, as opposed to being part of the heaps of paperwork that comes in at the very last minute from people racing to make the cutoff. Your personal statement will be dazzling...just like that fancy stocking. Well, maybe not JUST like it, but you know. Good luck!
from theshivers :
i feel your holiday whining pain...and totally understand.....and of course it's OK to come here and whine and bitch and so forth....that's what we're here for, among other things.
from ethelalcohol :
I love Grimace! Even if he did shoot JFK.
from ikss :
I like turkey bacon better now, too, so I guess we're both nuts. :) It's funny how quickly you get used to things. Regular bacon or even red meat on the grill just smells so FATTY to me now. ICK!
from theshivers :
yeah, all the dinner table talk over the "twins" definitely put me off my sweet potatoes...and much much more....it just seems like, oh i don't know, inappopriate holiday dinner talk....(then again, when WOULD it be appropriate to have your step-FIL talk about such a thing??)
from theshivers :
wow, you know Tahoe is only about 90 minutes from here (without traffic)....so close, yet so far away! Too bad we've got a million family obigations on Christmas and unfortunately none of them involve lovely Lake Tahoe....damn my family!
from ethelalcohol :
I've been dying to go to Tahoe! We might be going to Vegas for New Year's but I'm not sure yet. I want to go somewhere warm but cheap and since Brett has friends we can stay with there that might be our best bet. How far is Tahoe from Vegas?
from emeraldtiger :
great pictures, and great dress! and like the person below, i also like the kitchen color. lime-green totally rocks.
from emeraldtiger :
great pictures, and great dress! and like the person below, i also like the kitchen color. lime-green totally rocks.
from ethelalcohol :
I love the dress...and I love the kitchen even more - what a fabulous color!
from ikss :
You lost your appetite???!!! Damn...I wish that had happened to me...
from ethelalcohol :
Sad but true. Sometimes I think that this is the problem with being in such a large country. But then again, I don't know that a smaller country necessarily has less divisiveness. All I can think about now is damage control. What can I do to protect the issues that matter to me? How can I help to protect the environment? How can I protect reproductive rights? Gay rights? Freedom of speech? I don't know the answers of course, but at least I'm seeking the answers.
from shadowdress :
congratulations on making such an important decision! that is so awesome that you have such a rewarding job and make a difference in people's lives. thanks for the link to the Oaxaca pics, too.
from ethelalcohol :
Sadly I cannot see the photo. I'd love to see your new 'do - I'll show you mine if you show me yours. Congratulations on the decision! I wish you good luck with your grad work.
from theshivers :
p.s...yay on the grad school decision! The course of actions (masters, nonprofit leadership) sounds *so* very you...
from theshivers :
oh how i wish i could have interviewed Mr. Morrissey...but alas, no...and if you can't smoke 'em, you can at least drink 'em, right? I'll probably get smashed tonight! Whoo hoo!!
from ethelalcohol :
Oh my, your husband is indeed one of the most witty men ever!
from shadowdress :
Oh! it is a dream of mine to go to Oaxaca during Day of the Dead. Was it as beautiful as the pictures or very touristy? I got the recipes online--now that I read them they are all essentially the same recipe as this one: http://www.globalgourmet.com/food/egg/egg1096/panmuert.html. I was also considering sugar skulls but I was perturbed that the plastic mold I saw cost like $14 by itself. I'm thinking of making skull-shaped sugar cookies instead. Anyway, good luck with yours--hope you get a dry day!
from shadowdress :
i am also consumed in all sorts of craftiness and making an altar! i printed out some recipes for bread--if i may ask your advice--how far in advance of eating can you make it and still have it taste fresh?
from ethelalcohol :
That story just sounds too bizarre. She "found" the briefcase, knew it was important but just forgot about it, and then it "came up" in conversation? Yeah, and I just remembered that Jimmy Hoffa is buried in my backyard along with info about who killed Kennedy. Oopsie! just slipped my mind.
from ethelalcohol :
I'd send you my old girl scout uniform (because yes my mother did keep it) but its tiny - I was a scrawny child probably because back then I hadn't discovered the power of cheese and I never stopped moving long enough for the ten million bowls of sugar smacks to catch up to me. Speaking of halloween costumes - I've been invited to a halloween party too - work people - and they are all going as political and or pop culture type things - such as Martha's cell mate, etc. Any suggestions? I want to come across as smart and funny so I'm scratching my head a bit on what to wear.
from ethelalcohol :
I've decided that (if I'm not loving the teaching long time) to go for master's in Library Science. Then I could be a school librarian - get all the same holidays off and not have to deal with lesson plans, etc. AND I'd get to read a lot more without having to spend my own money or pay library late fees.
from ethelalcohol :
Well, you can't judge by my experience alone - for one I'm teaching in NYC public hell and two, they don't call it special ed for nothing. I long for the day when I can shuffle off to suburbia where parents actually expect their children to do work and respect their teacher and kids actually have learned to read before high school. I don't mind the special ed part so much - (but I have a high tolerance for craziness... if you met my family you'd know why) although it can get to you some days. I think you'd actually be a cool teacher and all the kids would want to emulate you. Plus (even though I am not a perv, I swear) its kind of flattering when high school boys tell you things like, "Miss B, you're hot!" Makes me think, "yeah, I've still got it." On my part, I'm jealous of the bamboo floors and the money pit - someday I'll have a money pit of my own I hope. Good luck and happy flooring
from tater-fay :
Yep, I love Garage Comps, too..esp. all the Back From The Grave ones and Pebbles, etc. I used to have a couple "Girls in the Garage" comps but I think my ex-husband claimed them as his own when we split..too bad! I do feel much better these days, which is a big relief to me as well as others, I'm sure! xoxo
from emeraldtiger :
darn, i think your guestbook is down. anyway yeah i agree, "W" sure does need to get a fact checker. beware of a presidential candidate who thinks "lacerations" is a synonym for "tears" (the kind you cry). seriously, aside from my political leanings, it astounds me what a bad debater and speaker bush is. but more power to kerry. go kerry!
from tater-fay :
Thanks...you always send me kind words! I know I need to see a doctor. It's difficult to do with no job, no insurance and no money but there has to be a way..and I'll find it..thanks again!
from ethelalcohol :
Ooh! Sorry to hear about Garry. I am always a little skeeved out by male aerobics instructors. Glad to hear you enjoy pilates - I miss it so.
from make-it-stop :
Stay at home actress! You kill me...and now I may need a new keyboard since I spit my drink all over it. That book just wrote itself, eh? They should have just written one line: If you have to question it...he's just not that into you. Can I come to the island? I need a vacation.
from myra-lee :
Me too re: the tin roof! And hooray for skidancing!
from caterwaul :
this is driving me batty. that link doesn't work and i want to know what a tin roof is! heather
from ethelalcohol :
How crazy is that?! I just heard about his untimely demise earlier this morning on the news. Shocking and sad.
from ethelalcohol :
Congratulations on your big girl bed. Brett wants to get one of those mattresses made of "space age foam polymer discovered by NASA" whatever the heck that is. But our current mattress is still fine so I won't be finding out anytime soon.
from onewetleg :
congrats on the new bed. i never have watched friends except sporadically. it never really turned me on. too many white people without jobs living in fantastic apartments. i don't watch tv news either, so i missed out on all the hype. i can't watch joey because nbc is a bunch of snobs and won't let the station show up on my crappy tv. i would have liked to have been able to have seen it and formed an opinion. oh, well. sydication is my friend. no pun intended. hey, wait. no pun made. hmm.
from ethelalcohol :
That does sound like a lovely Saturday! Oh, and I totally agree with you about the metric system. Stubborn Americans!
from myra-lee :
Ha ha! Maybe if Kato Kalin had had a spiritual grandmother, he would've turned out differently!
from oh-sweet-pea :
that is so funny! on saturday we went to a garage sale across the street from your pink and green house and kyla didn't see your truck so she assumed you were out. then on saturday afternoon we went to alki beach too! i swear i saw the same young couple on low rider bikes!! and last night when we went bowling, i was hoping you just might be there. next time, we'll definitely have to meet!
from myra-lee :
I know the meaning is somewhat different, but I think the modern-day "Yuppie" is more of a Bourgeois Bohemian (Bobo)...but I don't really consider all the Bobo signifiers such bad things...Have you read Bobos in Paradise by David Brooks? It gave me a whole new vocabulary for describing my family. I imagine Seattle is chock full of Bobos. Anyway, I don't think there's anything shameful about wanting quality Pilates instruction, especially when you have ailments!
from mariamania :
Ahhhh, thank you. I did just have a cigarette and now I'm off to TiVo while I wait for Eddie to come home. He's such a dear-heart. He was going to go to a show tonight (Charlie Hunter) but decided to rush home to my rescue. He gets the Awesome Husband Award for that.
from oh-sweet-pea :
well those are encouraging words! my grandmother had her last baby when she was 45 and all was well too. and congratulations on your triathalon!! very encouraging!
from emeraldtiger :
yeah i'll send it to that address. i'm still working on resetting it. you'll get it in a short while.
from emeraldtiger :
your new password will enable you to log in as "mrs-roboto". it will be e-mailed to your yahoo account soon. that's the only e-mail address i can find for you. if that is INCORRECT, notify me at emeraldtigerATdiaryland.com.
from ethelalcohol :
Congratulations again! You are so my hero. I'm going to paste your photo up on my treadmill to remind me to get off my lazy ass. And now I will say things about you in conversation like, "My friend, the triathlete said..."
from in-my-life :
Zowie! That sounds awesome! I must say that your 8 months and final push were all very inspiring. Oh, and I completely understand the whole anti-athlete thing too. So as a yoga/pilates/stretch-aholic I look forward to hearing about your new adventures. :-)
from itzie :
Congratulations! You accomplished something really amazing! I felt weepy reading about it. (Ok, so I'm PMSing and everything is making me weepy, but I'm definitely moved PMS or no.)
from myra-lee :
CONGRATULATIONS! Your times are really impressive, even without having the plague. That's amazing, and you should be super duper proud of yourself! I'm doing the wave in my cubicle in your honor.
from shadowdress :
congratulations on finishing a triathlon even with a cold! what an awesome accomplishment!
from monkeybar :
my sweet little lady...:( I'm so sorry you got sick right before your big day! Sux. Hurry, I need Part III.
from make-it-stop :
Thank you so very, very much. My tongue is swollen and a bit bloody from biting it but I am fighting the urge to pounce so much it's killing me. I just know that inquiring at all will make her feel defensive and I don't want her to feel that way with me. I'm having an especially hard time with the fact that her mother sent her home with a cell phone. A 12 yr. old w/ a cell phone! She told her it is so they can chat anytime she wants. It bothers the crap out of me. We have never stopped her from calling and never told our girl that she can't call her mom. I am just hoping that it is the Ex's way of telling her that she is wanting to stay in contact more and that she is going to be there for her. It just seems so excessive to me...kid's with cell phones. I don't understand the need for it. Anyway, I've rambled on too long. But I appreciate your words of support. Thank you, again.
from dutch-girl :
Great new layout! I caught that same episode of Trading Spouses the other night, and it was like watching a car wreck where you just couldn't look away, no matter how gross it was. Just goes to show people will do anything for money and a chance to be on TV.
from oh-sweet-pea :
i can't access your guestbook, but i just wanted to say that your new layout is lovely!
from caterwaul :
dude. nice layout.
from ethelalcohol :
Wow, your new layout is bee-yoo-ti-full! But I can't access your guestbook for some reason.
from make-it-stop :
Isn't that insane? I felt like I stepped back into time and my friends were lepers that might turn me onto drugs and various unprotected sex partners. I don't see how who I take a break with has any pertinence to my work ethic (which, by the way, has always been rock solid). Jerks.
from euphoria21 :
Did you think about a "garden nome"?(Not even sure if it's spelled right..but anyways, besides the baby Jesus, and the pink flamingoes, I don't see why you can't just stick a knome in the middle of it. * I wrote two different versions of..uh..."little garden guy", you're a smart girl, I know you know it...wasn't she the same lady that a while back you had written that she was starting to wonder why she shouldn't just turn gay because her husband's a loser, or am I wrong???
from seamonsta :
ur the best.
from make-it-stop :
A 3 day project turned into a 3 monther?!? You give me no hope at all. :) Especially since he decided that the drain pipe must be rerouted or else the end result will look terrible. Now I have holes in 2 walls that he plans on making even larger tonight. This from the man that said, "Thirty minutes to take everything out and a few hours to get it all back together." Oh, man. The outlook on this is bad. On another note, I am totally jealous of your night at the drive-in. I haven't been to one since I was a kid. And I was too young to make out then. Gonna have to find one and remedy that.
from harvestbird :
round here it's called "readylawn" and there's a lawn farm not far from where I live that grows it. You have to water it every day for weeks, however, or it dies.
from emeraldtiger :
hahaha! i loved your stripper story! i'm sure i would have had the same type of reaction as you did if that had happened to me as a kid. yikes.
from emeraldtiger :
hey if i ever move out there one day, we are definitely doing the danskin together! good luck w/ total immersion. and if you take your workouts to greenlake, the good news is (at least from all the time i was there) that there were no bongos there. i wish you a great, bongo-free workout and a bongo-free weekend!
from snideblonde :
I'm with ya, sister. I loath bongo players, they're so very annoying...
from emeraldtiger :
oops. once again, signmyguestbook doesn't like me. i meant to say i love the tulips you posted last week. so pretty! i bet you enjoyed going to see them. what a nice treat to look forward to each spring!
from raw-voice :
your trip (sans rental woes) sounds wonderful so far. i envy you that beach!
from oh-sweet-pea :
thanks for the wishes and thoughts about the state of my uterus. it's actually kinda strange, isn't it!
from make-it-stop :
Survivor! Poor Rudy...I liked him before (still haven't figured out why) and thought it too soon for him to go this time. Too bad. I'm doing the whole Idol thing now and totally loving Big, Fat, Obnoxious Fiance (or something close to that. They made the title long enough.) I watched it at first believing it would be bad enough to help me kick the reality habit but turns out it's hilarious. Go figure. Really enjoying your entries...you have a kick ass sense of humor!
from anyabeth :
Thanks for the sympathy. When I got my wisdom teeth pulled I was 24. They made me feel like I was 100 since every five minutes some one mentioned that I "would heal so slowly since YOU ARE SO OLLLLLLLD." At least this time no one said that. I guess root canals are for old people.
from mnvnjnsn :
No, I'm a Capricorn-- January 15. I was born on my mother's birthday, and I don't think she's ever really forgiven me for it. Heh.
from kayemess :
ahem - my diary is working again!
from monkeybar :
Hey. I went through the same thing with my grandfather..it's so bizarre how they do come to terms with things, isn't it? The last thing he said to me..I'll always remember. "Don't be sad, honey, I'll meet you again one day on the new horizon." I don't think it was even a religious thing..b/c he always skipped out of mass to go take the kids outside when they were misbehaving so that he could smoke cigarettes...but, religious thing or not..I believed him. Big hug.
from soapboxdiner :
Okay, Mrs. lady. I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much right now. I'm here, though, if you want to talk/get together for an afternoon away from the stress. Or when things ease up for you. I'm thinking good thoughts for you...
from ikss :
I'm so sorry. Unfortunately, I have nothing better or more comforting to say than that...
from everoboto :
Think of it this way, maybe your wonderful neighbors are the ones that got that baby because with them, that child has a fighting chance. She might go on to achieve what others in her condition might not. Her parents will love and encourage her, and they'll all be happy, in spite of her medical condition. Also, you should embrace the good things in your life. Don't let "black clouds" get in the way. It's okay to be happy for yourself if you are sympathetic and empathetic to others, which it sounds like you are. All the best. ~Eve
from emeraldtiger :
oh my god, what happened to your guestbook??? i'm so fed up with signmyguestbook. anyway, sometimes the world does indeed seem like an unfair place. sometimes it is very hard to understand why things happen the way they do or to the people that they happen to. just so you know: you definitely don't come across as self-absorbed in your diary when you describe the good things in your life. rather, i find it uplifting to read about. hang in there. xo

from tornadoali :
Hey, thanks for the encouraging note!! Glad you liked it. Bye the way, I was just looking at your profile, and wanted to tell you that I, too, love Banana Yoshimoto (as well as David Sedaris and others you mentioned). Anyone with a name like "Banana" just has to be great, don't you think?
from asteroidbelt :
it's true. the ska angle can be an entire story of its own. the state of ska today is a sad sad one.
from asteroidbelt :
you are so right on but you forgot to include ska losers. and i don't mean the good fans but the ones that think no doubt are ska. or the people that think reggae and ska are the same.
from theshivers :
stupid guestbook....anyway, what about Judd Nelson, Emilio Estevez, the guy that Molly Ringwald liked in 16 Candles and John Cusack? Surely, there are cabinet roles for them too...have fun in NYC!
from raw-voice :
i, too, regret coming back to "the hometown" after finishing school. though, hard as i try, i can't figure a way to get out again ... i actively refuse to blame a certain almost-three-yr-old.
from theshivers :
beautiful story - my thoughts are w/ you & your grandmother...x0x0~S
from the29th :
*hug*
from mnvnjnsn :
What a great story. Hugs and chocolate to you and your grandmother. I'm sending all my good thoughts northward to you.
from raw-voice :
i like the vaseline on the camera lens of your memory. this entry was a sepia print. i look forward to next...
from emeraldtiger :
what a beautiful, touching entry.
from asteroidbelt :
great story.
from everoboto :
Hey 'cousin', thanks for listing me as a favorite. I'll bet you anything that we've stood next to each other at the same concerts. I mean, c'mon, a girl at a Slayer show? That wasn't too common back then. Anyhow, I'll glad we've been 'reunited.'
from in-my-life :
Ack! I just tried to post a REALLY LONG message in your guestbook and I think I broke it. Oops.
from reddirtgirl :
Oh and by the way, "scary mall" is my term for pretty much any mall, although I will say that Bellevue Square has my vote for one of the scariest.
from the29th :
Okay, I know you love your house and your friends and all... but move. Pack up everything in the still of the night and slip away like fugitives. Act like members of the witness protection program. Never, ever tell anyone at all where you've gone. Change your names. Consider appearance altering surgery. Can you slouch down a bit while you walt to appear shorter? I know it's a high price to pay... but having read all of this, it doesn't sound like TOO high a price to pay. {ps, your guestbook hates me.}
from monkeybar :
ON MY HONOR, I WILL TRY: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Dude! I was SUCH a brownie. http://www.netguides.org.uk/brownies/bd_fundamentals/b_story.html
from asteroidbelt :
wow. that would be so awesome. thank you! and casper should totally do yer cover up! p.s. sorry if you got this twice. guestbook was being wonky. quelle surprise.
from asteroidbelt :
i'm glad you took the mushroom pictures. i looooove fungi. no really.
from fantast :
Beautiful bed! Fun, I get to go sleep on my hard (ooh! extended) twin bed.
from tater-fay :
very creepy..I have had extended conversations/arguments with that guy. Doesn't really surprise me I'm scared for all the little girls on here..I'm trying to warn his "fans"
from monkeybar :
"Each bite was like licking Miami." I think I laughed for 3 minutes (out loud) with that line. You are hilarious.
from raw-voice :
wonderful news! i remember this panicky, static electricity in my blood, feeling when i found out my sister was getting her lungs... it's really an amazing period in your lives. i hope the rest of this road brings much happiness!
from raw-voice :
oh mrs-robotito! you make me laugh! i think along the same lines, though less morbid, more emotionally damaging ones: i make miller say to me that no one will ever love him as much as i do. now, if i die, that could be a really hard thing to forget!
from reddirtgirl :
What's up with sign my guestbook these days? Anyway--Monkeybar is going to freak out when she sees that wiener shit. And when I say "freak out," I meant start spazzily talking in her wiener-baby-voice for hours without pause. And that is why we love her.
from darkfairy13 :
COOL DIARY! :-)
from dasauce :
Yeah. You should... Freaks is generally available on E-bay cheap. It had a very small print run Hardcover only in the late 70's... How? Who knows. Other than knowing that Tom is deeply non-confrontational and that he didn't sue Cafe Flesh (the porn film...and they even attributed him for the back story idea without his permission...) But how? No idea. It IS amazing though. Side by side? Names? Same if you use a thesaurus. Chapter names? Totally ganked. Characters? Again taken... General flow of story including conclusion? Same. She clearly had his book open the whole time. Theft stinks. Bestest, 'Sauce.
from dasauce :
Just cruised by on a click. Did you know that Geek Love was stolen Hook, Name, Chapter Names, premise and all from a book by Tom DeHaven called, Freak's Amour?
from tater-fay :
Wow..when did Gertrude (aka: Bob Newman) die? My husband JUST SAW HIM on April 4th!!
from tornadoali :
Hey! Thanks for leaving me a note last week (sorry this is so late!) So, did getting to see Frank Black and the Catholics take away the pain of having to clean up dog crap? Thanks again for reading my page! Keep up your enjoyable entries. --Tornado Ali
from amishboy :
any recomendations on neighborhoods, neighbor? I'm thinking cheap but hip. Does that even exist aside from dorms? Would you counsel a roommate, or a one room studio. And have a great weekend!
from tater-fay :
Oh, I forgot..you mentioned JP Patches...my husband drives senior citizens around and they went someplace recently and JP Patches was there and so was his side-kick, Gertrude (who is a REALLY scary clown guy/gal) and my husband didn't get Jp Patches' autograph cuz they were outta the photos to be signed, but he now has a signed photo of GERTRUDE hanging on our wall..YES!
from amishboy :
Sweet! Thanks for the look out on the job front! Also, I saw you listed Tron in your profile - you can't see it, but I'm giving you a one-man standing ovation right now.
from reddirtgirl :
Thanks! That means a lot coming from the funniest lady on the internet. ;)
from reddirtgirl :
Apparently, it appeared to some that I was saying something negative about birdgyrl, which was so far from my intention that I got all shocked and took it down. Someone else basically called me a lame whiny bitch for my handling of the Wayne situation, but I don't really care about that. I never said I was mature.
from rumblelizard :
I was having technical difficulties...please try again and let me know if you still can't get in. Thanks!
from theshivers :
eh, just forget that whole Cheaperthandirt thing..i just looked at the web site...too scary, even for me...
from theshivers :
damn stupid guestbooks and not being able to sign twice in a row...what i needed to add was that, yes, Cheaper than Dirt has guns and ammos and stuff, but cheap bags as well...but hey, who doesn't like looking at guns and ammo? Oh yeah, can I be on your magazine staff too?
from vivakate :
kinda neat that my friend from lj found your journal thru me...
from vivakate :
tried to sign your guestbook but was thwarted. what i wanted to say was: boy mtv better not play nena's 99 luftballoons or all hell might break loose!!!
from thebrenda :
i was kidding :) no worries. it's actually from a font made by the artist on fontalicious. com. if anything the template designer should get hell, cause the designer @ fontalicious has asked to be informed of any use of his free images. .. weither your template designer did that..is beyond me.
from birdgyrl :
i cannot take credit for my bedspread. it was a gift from my mother. she may absolutely suck when it comes to helping me shop for clothes (uh, mom? no one's worn the color teal since 1987!) but she's got pretty cool taste in linens. Thank you!
from birdgyrl :
You're killin' me with the recycling jokes! Pretty much the only clear memory of Saturday's party: Mrs. Roboto giving me shit about the importance of recycling! :) After that I hear I was MIA. ??
from influence :
well i tried writing a recap on that, per your request, but it keeps leading down a way too sticky path. Basically, the last boyfriend was an astrophysicist. you know, like one of ten guys in the world who discovers new planets and all that. so when the kind doctor was ditched for me, some people were bothered, and understandably so. If your daughter brought home two equally nice, caring guys, one successful and one not, who would you prefer? Of course the dad has taken the "whatever makes my daughter happy" approach which i like better, but i still understood her mom on this one.
from seamonsta :
I know. I'm so psyched bout Sarah! We're hitting the Met for the most incredible Leonardo exhibit ever, and possibly MOMA for Picasso/Matisse. I'm beside myself.
from seamonsta :
Sorry to hear of your dislikes for the city...Seattle's gotta be pretty cool. From what I can tell, you seattle-lites are HARDCORE! The juiceman thing CRACKED me up. My first girlfriend and I used to sit and watch that Juiceman Juicer infomercial for HOURS. We were hypnotized by the brows.
from seamonsta :
Bar 4? Interesting. I live in the Slope but I know not of this bar. I'm also not the hippest kitty in town either...
from influence :
Note to self: never pull a prank on Princess Mrs. Roboto...she's ruthless.
from influence :
usually i feel the same way, but it was my fault for leaving the door open, so i think i'll save the urination idea until this thing escalates a little more. though i just thought of an idea, see, she doesn't realize that I have a skeleton key to every door in the house. I'm thinking, since we're dealing with snow and nakedness, a big bucket of snow dumped while she showers.
from miralogue :
i tried to sign your guestbook but my work computer is dumb and i couldn't. so. hi. i've been ducking in and out lately-- and i love your stuff. i also felt i should say that all the auto-glass fixers around here offer a free box of steaks with a new windshield....yah. Appetizing.
from reddirtgirl :
Hi. It's me, the goof that signed your guestbook with no name.
from in-my-life :
Thank you for inquiring about my Ampersand entries. I say thanks because it made me realize that I probably have gotten a little carried away with them. See, I haven't posted the rest because I now have this great plan to delete all those I've posted, repost them, and then organize them all in such a way ... uh, that makes it clear that I am exhibiting signs of some sort of OCD. I won't go into the details because then you would definitely think I was loopy. P.S. Forget the OCD-like behavior, really I should 'fess up and blame it on Kazaa, as I've been swapping files like a mad woman for the past week. Oh wait, that's actually even crazier, I won't tell you about all the editing I did to the 1500+ files I uploaded so that they were nice and neat.
from in-my-life :
Thanks for that GB post, I just sprayed coffee all over my monitor!
from gimme-mono :
david sedaris is so funny...i have all four of his book...WATCH ME GO!!! *fall*
from soapboxdiner :
You, my dear, are anything BUT the balding overweight football guy. I found that entry beautifully written and happen to love insights into who people were, before who they became. Both of who, in this instance, I am madly infatuated with.
from raw-voice :
it wouldn't let me post this in your guestbook! ~~~~~ that anecdote is even funnier cause you don't know that i once walked into my bedroom and found a POSSUM!
from reddirtgirl :
Hey! I don't usually check my notes, as they are seldom used, so I just got yours about the club. It sounds fun--keep me posted.
from kstyle :
see you like david sedaris - wanna join my ring in honor of his sister?(jerri-blank) i'm a friend of in-my-life, so ya know i must be a cool guy! - cheers, michael
from asteroidbelt :
up until this very second i thought you were a vancouverite. but i guess seattle is very close. but i really thought you lived in the same city as me. i am dumb.
from stardwarf :
I feel kind of like a babbler having three messages in a row on your notes... but oh well. I'll shut up after this one, I promise. I think the velvet Elvi are spectacularly funny. And the funniest part? That people have to KEEP them because their from your wedding. The second funniest part? That someday someone will buy one for a dollar in an estate sale. And they'll take it home and add it to their Elvis shrine and believe that "Peter" is the name Elvis started using after faking his death.
from stardwarf :
"You guys do the backup on that Run DMC song, right?" was probably the funniest thing I've read in a very long time... I had to tell two people I work with (who actually LIKE Aerosmith) and even they couldn't help laughing about it.
from stardwarf :
It's things like this that make me want to have huge amounts of disposable income. I would sneak out in the wee hours of the morning and replace the bush every week with a smaller and more sickly one than the last, until all that was in the spot was a gnarled stick with a fake plastic rose glued to it.

I added you to my favorite diaries and I'm so glad I did. I've loved reading it and I love your layout!
from kissoff :
Oh garden burgers.. fuck that shit. Boca is the only way to go, and you need to make sure to smother it with at least 12 slices of melted cheese. The worst " garden burger" I ever had was at a stupid trendy upscale place, I was served a large bun with a very pretty salad ( complete with edible flowers). I was optimistic and bit into my " burger"... only to discover that inside was a giant portobello mushroom. Yes,that was my patty. Brilliant. After that I started filling my purse with small animals and roasting them on sticks over the candles when I go to nice restaurants. *oh yeah, great layout and design. you've got some serious style
from manukenkun :
just another way of getting in touch, did you really have Blue Hawaii playing in the background when you got married? When did you get married and where? I am so smitten by the boy I am seeking ideas from anyone and everyone!
from rollerqueen :
Thanks a lot for the note. PEZ!! God I love Pez. And yes you probably do have more Pez dispensers than me. And I agree with the person below me. your layout is super. Bex
from stardwarf :
Your layout totally ROCKS. I haven't read all your entries yet but I'm totally adding you to my favorites based on the fact that you have to be AT MINIMUM half as cool as that layout and that's plenty cool for me.
from fit-to-burst :
my little brother may have more dispensers than you. and thank you.
from riotladyamy :
Oh my goodness!! What a beautiful layout! Much better than I could have done. Way to go Twiggle! <3amy#2
