from degausser :
Hahaha I probably should! Do you still have my number from a million years ago?
from degausser :
Hold the phone, are you saying that your birth certificate does NOT read "Pyro J. Guy"? Wtf? Who even are you? Anyway, hey hi how are you doing?
from bindyree :
The old person that scares me the most is the one in my mirror! When the heck did THAT happen? But, still, it beats the alternative!
from whystinger :
I don't know what is going on, but from your latest entry I assume you are in a position where you may benefit from a support group. I found one at my local NAMI affiliate. www.NAMI.org and (if I read your entry right) look for their Peer to Peer group. If I read it wrong, you can find another support group. They also have training available for caring for mental health issues.
from degausser :
Thanks love. He's been doing a lot better. Once he was back to work for a few weeks there was a drastic difference in his mood and behavior. Obviously nothing's 100%, but he's doing much better than he was.
from degausser :
Alright, you've convinced me then. To wifey's we go, coyness be damned!
from zenayda :
I just saw your note now. I had a flamingo template, was (and still am) a crazy bird lady, and used to rant about politics every fourth or fifth entry. Given up on that last bit. I still care, but I just don't blog about it.
from degausser :
I thought the couch would give the illusion of us not being presumptuous.
from degausser :
Let's go crash on wifey's couch! I'm sure she'll appreciate that.
from zenayda :
In the same boat as you, only it took me a year and a half to save up so I can move this summer, back to DC where I belong. P.S. You may or may not remember Pandi-onna from back in d-land's heyday, but I would be she. Seeing your screen name under "recent public entries" was a blast from the past!
from degausser :
You'll take my virtual hugs and like it!
from bindyree :
Aw, you're welcome! I'll give you virtual hugs anyway, so there. Neener. Hugs hugs hugs hugs! Would you be a love and please email me via my own diary? I have some news for you that I'm not sure you know about. Thanks! xoxoxo B
from bindyree :
What a huge amazing thing you've done! Good for you!
from bindyree :
Clinical depression sucks hugely. I've had it on and off for several years. Look on Amazon and get yourself some vitamin D gel capsules, and also some calcium supplements. An infusion of these have made a difference for me. I'm not out of the woods yet, but at least I am showering more than I used to and I'm painting again. :) Hang in there. Storms always pass. xoxo
from degausser :
I'm short on everything this month and can't even afford a trip to the liquor store. I'm going to have to start making hooch.
from dangerspouse :
Well waddaya know. Welcome back! Let's see...2014... that makes you 60 now, right? Congrats! And I hope things go better for you in 2015. It sounds like you could really use a break about now.
from degausser :
POKE POKE POKE. Oh. Is this not Facebook? *wanders around lost*
from bindyree :
Good luck with your new endeavor, kiddo! Life will take care of you if you let it. xoxoxo -- and while I would adore meeting you in person, I hope with all my heart that you never ever have to drive a truck in San Francisco!
from degausser :
i said i've *talked* about love, not been in love ;) you know i don't get down with all that love jazz. ... such a lie. sigh. how are you? :)
from bindyree :
Wow, it's nice to see what your gal looks like! I am a huge RenFaire fan myself; that's a wonderful news piece. :)
from pyroguysr :
*Tap* *Tap* *Tap* Is this thing on?
from hissandtell :
Come back, Shane! Love, R xxx
from degausser :
i hope i am able to fill her shoes properly.
from degausser :
i know, i just didn't know i was THE hottest piece of ass. that's a lot of responsibility.
from degausser :
you know you'll always be my princess. and i'll be moving in shortly. maybe. well, it's either you or the lesbians.
from bindyree :
Hey, kiddo, my tenderest sympathy over the loss of your fourlegger; you did exactly the right thing at the right time, so don't ever wonder about that. Time will be your friend.
from orsimblossim :
Yes, definitely hang on to the happy family memories and good times with them. I would say I envy you, except envy isn't a good thing and I've fully accepted the fact that my family is just not normal, has never been, and never will be. I'm not "fine" with it, but I've hand-built my own loving family by surrounding myself with the people who've proven themselves worthy of returning the favor, and I'm at a loss for words to say how grateful I am for their presence on this earth...
from degausser :
haha, no reason to worry about me. but yes, call me sometime, fool. do you have my number? haha
from bindyree :
Death and politics go hand in hand; it's one of those human universal constants. Be assured that you did what you thought was right, and that you did what you thought was best, and be at peace. Go ahead and mourn in your own way; I, too, was absolutely relieved when my mother finally died of breast cancer, and I think a lot of people feel that way after it's taken a while to say farewell. You've earned your own sort of rest. May your mom sleep in peace and wake in wonderment.
from orsimblossim :
I'm so sorry, hon. I'm glad she's finally at peace, though...and back with the man she loved. (hug)
from sbsneech :
Oh, honey! *hug*
from degausser :
hey boo, you okay?
from nilliem :
Lots of peace and strength...
from orsimblossim :
Well, it hasn't actually been all that awe inspiring since I've been eligible to vote....but it's especially hum-drum this time around....
from orsimblossim :
Hehe, you're funny. ;)
from degausser :
no thanks! :P what have you been up to?
from hissandtell :
Hmmm. I'd need more of a Maxi-Cooper, I suspect. (And is it any coincidence that a cooper is a maker of barrels? And that coopers bind their barrels with hoops? And that, when you think about it, the noble art of barrel-binding is really just one step sideways from the steamy art of Shibari? No, I didn't think so.) Love, R xxx
from nilliem :
a)Children's marriage issues suck. b)AMAZINGLY cute granddaughter!! Love the texture issues, we have them in my house, too. c)So, ok, I'm working and not writing. Doesn't mean you get to do the same! ;) Here's to a grand New Year!
from bindyree :
It's painfully obvious that your daughter-in-law has already got somebody picked out to horse around with if she hasn't already done so; I suggest you tell your son to agree to her terms and grab his hat and go stay somewhere else for a couple of days and see if she enjoys the open arrangement. :-)
from hissandtell :
Um, I understood that an integral part of living (and indeed getting older) was thinking that life was passing you by, and having all manner of regrets about all the fun things happening out there that you're missing. But being a grown-up -- especially one with a partner and little kids -- means making choices and commitments and (just sometimes) putting other people's needs ahead of your own. I completely understand someone wanting the best for themselves, but sometimes it's a better option to put chasing rainbows on hold for a while and instead to allow yourself to have a great deal of fun with the one -- and the life -- you've already chosen. (Now get some sleep, possum!) Love, R xxx
from sbsneech :
Love you doll. too long since we've had a good talk.
from degausser :
you're my princess forevaaaa
from bindyree :
What a lovely remembrance of your friend; the celebs from our childhood are dropping like flies now, and whenever we pass the news around, my friend Dave just attaches the three-letter code GOS to his cell text: Growing Old Sucks. Hang in there. &FWIW, I'm very glad you're still on this side of the dirt. :-)
from bettyford :
so sorry.
from degausser :
haha, no objections here. how are you?
from orsimblossim :
You're back in Chitown? And no one told me? Sheesh. No one tells me anything. ;)
from degausser :
i have a theory that you people stop maturing at age like..14. i still love you, though.
from nimbus- :
I want to thank you for your continuing support and encouragement!
from flicka :
Ohmygod. I've not had my computer (stolen in a robbery) for over 3 months. Thank you so much for letting me know about this. I am sorry to have lost him and that you lost him too. I feel blessed to have had him in my life only briefly.
from cherryjjones :
Thank you for letting me know about Tony. He's been in my thoughts, and I wondered how I would know about his progress. He seemed like a very kind and genuine person, I'm sorry he lost the fight with cancer. Blessings to his family.
from poolagirl :
Thank you for letting us know about Tony. I wish there was something I could say that made sense.
from lifeasme66 :
Hello there, I wish I were writing on a happier occasion. But I wanted to thank you for your note over at my place regarding Tony. He'd stumbled across me a year or two ago, when I was dealing with some pretty stressful shit. I appreciated his candor and his warmth, and I was very saddened to find out about his cancer diagnosis months later. I'd always hoped he'd be able to beat it, but I know it must have gotten really hard at the end. I'm glad that he is at peace now, and thank you again for spreading the word about a good online friend of mine. I'll be writing his sweetie, as well as doing a little something for him in my blog over the next couple of days. **HUGS!!**
from stepfordtart :
Thank you so much for your note. I barely 'knew' Tony at all but he always came across as a really cool guy with a strong sense of the ridiculous. My sincere condolences to all those who loved him and whom he loved. s x
from bluemeany :
Wow ... I never spoke with Tony, but I did check out his diary a time or two. Since I didn't know him very well, all I can say is that I hope he's in a better place now.
from novicesub :
I am saddened beyond belief about Tony's death. He and I spent a good deal of time chatting and he always gave me good advice. I hope that you will pass on my condolences to his flower. And thank you for letting me know.
from theturtle :
That's way too young. People our age aren't supposed to die.
from off-book :
Yeppers...50-yards...
from orsimblossim :
Welcome back! Now details, brother, details...
from sketty :
'cause you are missed. Come the hell back and tell us shit!
from nilliem :
Ok, I listened just because...well because. I love wearing purple. Is there a significance other than royalty I don't know about? I'm all over learning new stuff...tell me! Oh, and HI!! How the heck are you?
from petmykittie :
Was that note you left for *me?* Because I am incredulous.
from petmykittie :
Wwwwwhaaaattttt?????
from degausser :
can we kidnap lydia & get married soon?
from sketty :
My birthday? Why, it's 30th September Mr Pyro :)
from newsoulie :
I still love you, even though I'm really not here any more. Myspace is my main home and well, the only place I visit any more... still, love you loads. xxx
from sketty :
Thanks Pyro, I appreciate it. I guess if we didn't have the 'downs' we wouldn't appreciate the 'ups' so much :)
from sketty :
Blimey, we're a right pair of misery guts aren't we? All power to you my friend
from nilliem :
Collecting hearts = bad. Borrowing other equipment with no strings attached and spelled out = ok. Sorry....you do deserve someone as marvelous as you. Wanna trade lives for a few days? heh
from mrscoble :
Sometimes I wonder if you're subconsciously looking for someone who needs to be "fixed", you know? You gotta stop going for people who aren't right, and take some time before trying something different to heal your heart. You're wasting time on selfish princess whores, dude. Seriously, I'm being far more kind on that note than I feel anyone should, and you know I'm being kind about it. For fuck's sake, concentrate on yourself, and block bitches who get pissed off because you don't immediately send them a message. Call or message me when you feel like it, and in the meantime, I'm waiting for you to take care of yourself. When you do, we'll all know. If I catch you online, I'll drop you a line. I still have that CD full of 80s music (abashedly, I admit that I just cleaned my desk today, finding the disc and list in the mess) for you, but an address you no longer reside at. Jack, dear, I love you. Please don't let skeevy bitches sour you.
from bindyree :
Py, you take as much time as you need to come back to writing. You are a sweet guy with a beautiful soul, and if there's anybody out there who doesn't have enough sense to see that, it's their loss. Please know that I am thinking of you. Hang in there!
from nilliem :
Hey! 'sup? Did you glare menacingly at your cat? hehe Didn't forget the book, btw. Just can't seem to avoid carpstorms. Happy Imbolc, late I know, but its all the way to Spring now!
from petmykittie :
... I'm sorry, what?
from lady-frenzy :
Thank ya kindly, Pyro! ;o)
from petmykittie :
Being a filmmaker (or some semblance of one), I know quite well that the best and most effective way to make something better is to let someone else look at it. My Novel, also has been through an amazing number of rewrites as well as revisions. Mostly because I've had it in my head for nearly a decade, and only a few years ago did I actually start writing it. Now, I'm still a youngin', which means I began when I was about twelve. I know I have to have someone else read it. People have before--the second or third versions, I believe. It's just.... *sigh.* Difficult.
from petmykittie :
Ahhhhhhh maybe. I'm way sensitive about my novels. I mean, I'm getting better, but I'm still an absolute psycho whenever anyone mentions them. But I will keep your offer in mind.
from nilliem :
Congrats on the grandbaby, and hope all is fun and games. But dude, you need a spew alert...that title of yours made me choke! hehe
from bindyree :
Thanks for the mention, babe! So, tell me, when you were running, did you hear bongo drums? :-)
from lady-frenzy :
Are you sure it's not "eleven cats pimping"?
from tudor-diva :
Congrats on the new grand-baby! Hope you find some of that joy in her that you seem to be missing in your personal realm right now. Cheers!
from lady-frenzy :
*Squirms* Hey, that tickles! :)
from sketty :
Great pictures. I particularly liked the finger wedged firmly up the nose one :)
from orsimblossim :
Well, I don't know who the baby looks like, but you can definitely tell that's your son! ;)
from breakthedark :
That, for lack of better words...is crap! What happened to freedom of speech? Hmm...any chance you can make a new account?
from bettyford :
she is beautiful! congrats!
from breakthedark :
Where have you run off to?
from hissandtell :
Oh, baby. I guess this elevates you to the status of "GILF"! Congratulations, you sly old dog - and Happy Nappies! Woof! Love, R xxx
from orsimblossim :
Many congrats! I'm so happy for you and your family. :)
from nilliem :
awww...congrats!! and btw, D.O.G. has such a nicer ring to it than D.O.M. ;)
from sketty :
Welcome to singledom and the unexplained stains that go with it :)

18? christ. i don't remember the last time i was involved with someone that young. how bad is THAT? haha

The Key: Username - arse password - biscuit
from off-book :
You and I never seem to get it together enough to be around at the same time, etc. Sorry to hear about some of the crap you're having to deal with! Hope your Turkey Day was at least a little better. If not, you can always come on up here for a visit and we'll eat cold left-overs and watch sappy movies and stuff. Miss you!
from sketty :
Thanks for the bad arm advice. Looks like my near death flap might have been a bit hasty again :)
from chasngghosts :
you need more hugs than i do. *hugs*x697346273946297.
from bindyree :
Nothing to add except that if there's an issue of trust with somebody online? Head for the hills. A person online can control as little or as much as they tell about themselves and make you (generic you not Pyro you) believe anything they want to have you believe. Please be careful. I'm sorry for the loss of your friend.
from hissandtell :
How horrid - and what a tragic bloody waste. I'm sorry, mate. Love, R xxx
from orsimblossim :
Man. I am so damn sorry.
from sketty :
Awww shit man. Being philisophical and knowing about the circle of life doesn't make it any easier when it comes down to it does it? Soz to read your shitty news.....
from hissandtell :
"'Nastily' used panties" indeed, darling? Gracious! I live on a cattle rancho, you know - my mind's boggling already as to just how nasty they could be by the time they reach you! (Love you too, possum.) R xxx
from tailbonelust :
I just feel like being exclusive. And also, I like watching girls compete. It's fun.
from nilliem :
Good to know why you've been AWOL. Better to know its for a good cause. Breathe, and relax and perhaps the two of you will eventually get to meet. Beyond that, yay for a new friend. OH..trust your gut. Its bad when you don't.
from t85225 :
Hey, thanks for the note... haven't given up on the 16-turning-23 year old yet, but I sure feel like smacking him one :p Tried to check out your 360 blog, but it's private? Can't invite either, you have it locked down like it's holding the Crown Jewels :) My nic there is 't_85225'... send me an add, whydoncha? Take care! ~T
from off-book :
And where have YOU gone now?? :) Hope you're having fun with the girlie friend.
from nightdragon :
Actually, when we were in Chicago back in August, our friend told us that they're changing over one of the oldies stations to an urban "black" talk station.
from off-book :
Not leaving my baby blues...even though they're usually more hazel. ESPECIALLY not now that he bought me diamonds. I'm still in disbelief. When they actually get here (they're being mailed) I might have to super glue them to my ears, just so I'm sure I don't loose them. God, I love that boy.
from chasngghosts :
haha, well, i don't know if he loves me. i don't think he can. which is why i hate males a whole lot. but he thinks he does. & when he goes AWOL, it's amazing...& i even believe him then. it's just the rest of the time that i get all doubty & upset. oh well. i love you.
from off-book :
A girlfriend, eh? Woohoo! I want details.
from tudor-diva :
OK, a silly limerick for you: A flea, and a fly in a flue Were trapped, so what could they do? "Let us fly," said the flea. Said the fly, "Let us flee." So through a hole in the flue they went through.
from nilliem :
Thanks! I appreciate the wishes...oh, and btw...I emailed you at MyBacon, but, uh...well, you know. It wasn't important, just a momentary thought and reponse.
from sketty :
I'm not even going there on the Europe thing. I'm an American living in Europe and well, like I say. I ain't going there.....
from chasngghosts :
haha. thanks jack.
from bindyree :
" I don't give a fuck what Europe thinks. They've been "has beens" on the world scene for the past 70 years." -- my Old Buddy Dave has a link in a recent entry of his that says "What part of Europe are you from? The part we saved? Or the part whose ass we kicked?"
from lady-frenzy :
Oh, I love the ending kiss in Sabrina!!
from chasngghosts :
the movie sabrina is pretty much the love of my life.
from lady-frenzy :
Pyro, I can honestly say that I have never been more intimidated than in the presence of Mr. Crack-head. But yeah, I’m quite pretty, even to a junkie.
from mrscoble :
Oh my gawd. Who wrestles the one-eyed snake in someone else's car? Ew? What did he THINK people were going to want to do at a FOOTBALL PARTY? Discuss politics? Shee-it, for a professor, he ain't too bright. Even Gorb knows not to speak when I'm watching the game. By the way... I'll be in Nashville on the 4th. How can I watch, if I'm going to be in Pops' apartment?
from chasngghosts :
hahah. this is where i ran off to this summer. i miss you & love you. ♥
from chasngghosts :
princess.
from nilliem :
Hi!!! How the hell are you?? And I apologise for a 40-something woman acting like that. Unacceptable! And very loser-like, as well. Here's to a better week ahead.
from orsimblossim :
This is true. :D
from lady-frenzy :
Tee-hee! ^_^
from orsimblossim :
Heh. Smartass. ;)
from sketty :
You tell 'em brother! They clearly aren't as fulfilled as they'd like you to think if they're still obsessing about little old you.
from lady-frenzy :
Your entry reminded me of my last encounter with my college gang... I miss the alcohol abuse and the light smacks I received on the bum every time I entered the bar. *cries*
from lady-frenzy :
The Navy?! I didn't peg you the type, Pyro... Was it a rebellious phase?
from orsimblossim :
Oohhh, thanks for the well wishes! :D
from lady-frenzy :
That is so hot. In a few years when I'm desperate and tired of living, I'll try that.
from mrscoble :
Oh. Oh my god. In the library? And you walked away? OH MY GOD!
from sketty :
Oh - My - God! What a dirty, dirty cat you met today! I am proud that you kept your dignity and honor in tact :)
from tudor-diva :
Thanks for clearing up the A&R bit for me. I get on these Cars rampages every so often and go through all their albums in the car diuring the course of a week. And it cracks me up when Ric Ocasek shows up on The Colbert Report. Hey, only 30 days til TRF opens, WITH excellent pyro as always. Cheers!
from lady-frenzy :
Actually, I'm almost 22. I'm just amazed that I've made it to 21, since 19 and 20 were really rocky years for me. B-day is Nov. 25. But legal in body does not mean legal in mind, ya hear?
from sketty :
Of course - where the heck would I be withoutya?
from lady-frenzy :
Minus the stairs, of course.
from lady-frenzy :
P.S. Thanks for the hug. I needed it.
from lady-frenzy :
Something using an unusual amount of power? Any neighbors running a line from your house to their sweltering grow-op next door? J/K, oh-la-la...
from petmykittie :
It ALL needs fixing!! It is not meant for human consumption!!! It needs to be fixed right into the fireplace!!
from buttwhore :
Thanks, enviornMENTALists. There is actually billboard here saying that, because they wouldn't let us clear out the forests, over 400,000 acres burned in Arizona in 1 fire. Blah. I hate them. P.S. Congrats on being a grandpa!! Hurray!! Hope all is well. Love ya.
from lady-frenzy :
Is the last one a fear of nothingness, or an actual fear of nothing?
from mrscoble :
Of course that's who we should blame, dear. *Environmentalists* have gotten enough subverse advertising, that people think these are their own thoughts on the subject. Never mind that most of these nutjobs (who treat environmentalism more like a religion than a cause) are anti-technology and would have the electricity needed to run a hospital shut down. We should blame the corporates because, well, they have money, and creating the classes we're NOT supposed to have in modern western society is the very way they manage to keep everyone fighting. Hell, it's working, because people are still stupid enough to fall for it.
from sketty :
How I track the searches? In the left hand corner at the bottom of each of my diary entries is a colorful little box. Click on that and it should take you to sitemeter.com. Register with them and you get free stats! As for the rest, oooOOOooooh, you are naughty (but I like it) :)
from sketty :
oooOOOOOOOOOoooooooh, I've seen what you look like, I've seen what you look like! Playing with my hair? It would have to be a virtual experience as you would be trapped in it, slowly becoming insane if you had been doing it for real :)
from kungfukitten :
Thanks for the critique, some very helpful stuff. This is a very rough draft (one reread while on painkillers rough) so I know there's some housekeeping stuff to do, but I'm glad there's some description in there. Normally I'm all action and dialog with no description so I feel like I'm moving in the right (write?) direction.
from off-book :
Happy Birtday, you dirty old man! Off to college sometime in the next couple of days. You know the drill. If I'm close to closing my eyes, you're my escape call. *muah!*
from kungfukitten :
*Pops out of a cake* Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Pyroguysr, Happy Birthday to yoooooou! You're not 52 are you? You look so much younger.
from sketty :
52? It that the level of your headache on a scale of 1 to 50?
from petmykittie :
I'm not about to start arguing this way, because I'm not out to pick a political fight. I hate arguing about politics because both the conservatives and the liberals can be terrible, scathing, and stupid. I'm just saying... Bruce Tinsley is not funny.
from sketty :
My sympathies in abundance for the headache Pyro! Get well soon my friend
from petmykittie :
Hey... don't forget to look up my art someday!
from petmykittie :
Thanks so much for adding me.
from breakthedark :
Thanks ;) It does need a bit tweaking, but I was feeling restless today.
from sketty :
You make me laugh/cheer me up!
from sketty :
I can sympathise wholeheartedly (with the first bit any way). I had one particular guy approach me with the plan we become comedy writing partners. Then his 'comedy' arrived in my inbox..... It still makes me shudder :(
from mrscoble :
To quote Pacino from 'Scent of a Woman': "HOO-ahhhh!" Now the democratic party has decided to fully taint the word "progressive". Man, there's a whole insurance company that's going to be brought down by that set of negative connotations. You're on a roll baby. Let's chew up the rest of the career politicians and call it a day. Want some of my rum?
from joiedv :
Hear hear!!!I l loved this very progressive piece of yours. But I have the answer, they are progressive because they have sold their soul in return for the support of every wacko special interest fringe group there is. Progressive in the acquisition of power.
from mrscoble :
I'm being nosy today. Is salt kosher depending on how it's killed?
from sketty :
(chuckles) You've got a way of cheering me up when I'm trying my darndest to be grumpy :)
from bettyford :
dirty mind.
from orsimblossim :
Oh, you are NOT knockin' my Grandpa's taste in steak garnishes! :) (pssst.....btw, what do you put on YOURS? And please don't tell me "nuthin", because I won't believe you. *L*)
from breakthedark :
Many thanks! I am so glad you liked it.
from sketty :
In fact, I'd delete that entire link. It squashes up the side menu doesn't it? Damn me and my stupid plastic religious figure
from sketty :
Erm, I reckon that'll need a major cut 'n paste don't you?
from sketty :
Hey, you GO dude!
from off-book :
Most of my computer time is at work, silly. Between when manager looks, etc. Chatting isn't work-friendly...
from joiedv :
Must have been a different Chicago abode ;) Although, I don't think the particular band member I was referring to stayed next door to my friend. I do think he moved, but I am not sure where...if you are talking high school years, he could have been gone and elsewhere at that time. I know for sure he lived there while we in 5th through junior high.

from sketty :
Welcome back. I'm particularly pleased to see I wasn't culled from your list :)
from joiedv :
No, I didn't.
from sketty :
Hahahaha, you've got my hair sussed perfectly :)
from lady-frenzy :
Isn't that just a kind way of saying that I'm simple minded?
from sbsneech :
so, uh... yeah, just 'cause I used the expression that implies such a thing, doesn't mean that it is true. ;P
from joiedv :
I just made the connection...Pyrotechnics, Pyro Guy. Cute.
from lady-frenzy :
Shucks, you’re always flipping compliments my way (not that I object). If told you that I frequently scorn the way I look, would you even believe that?

Oh, and about the 'Canes....I was actually kinda rooting for the Oilers because then it would've not made the Wings look so bad, but in the end I really didn't give a shit. :P

Well, anyone can see that it's commemorating the 04 World Series win, which I'm still proud of, and I have hope and faith that they'll take the title back this year! You have dragons to buy? Send me a link. Also, I'll send you my book soon, I just need to re-load some programs (I recently got a new computer). Try sending me your book again, try a_real_dragon2006@yahoo.com

Hey, hey, that's my "Edmunton" you're talking about... she may not be pretty, or interesting, or have a winning hockey team, but she exists at the corner of the Universe, the keeper of the memories of the days when the 'great one' walk among us, as a humble hockey player and not the guy accused of betting on games…

My dad is from a teeeeeeeeeny town called St. Bernice (population 950 in 1990), which is pretty close to a bigger one called Clinton. I guess the biggest KNOWN city in the vicinity is Terre Haute. I also had relatives in Boonville, which is in the Evansville area. I grew up in Los Angeles, but we went back to visit every other year, more or less. Our family reunions were HUGE, so odds are good we are related ;)

just so you know (in case you didn't?) guys like that make my stomach turn, and not in a good way. i mean if bill murray wanted to dance around me naked then I would love it - because it would be funny! but not a chippendale - that's my opposite idea of "sexy".

Phew, I'm less evil than you (even if that is only by 2%). That's pretty evil then isn't it? Pah, no wonder the Fates (my nemesis) hate me :(
from orsimblossim :
No, I *really* couldn't do that. If I'm going to make them sit in a hot, barely-A/C'd church for two hours - especially when they've probably brought a gift for the Happy Couple - it would be even ruder to invite them to the Ceremony but not the Reception. (p.s. I have a one-bedroom apartment, Mister, and with the schedule I keep I would NOT have time to do dishes otherwise. Plus, getting food-goopy soap and water on my hands makes my flesh crawl. I'm actually a bit better about cleaning toilets, though not by much...)
from hissandtell :
YES! Dishwashers are evil! I don't think ours has been used in more than five years; I doubt it even still works. When we used to have wealthy paying guests from OS (I'd teach them ESL in the morning and then we'd spend the afternoon riding horses and sitting on a creek bed painting canvases of gum trees and cockatoos), the Host Farm Association insisted on an automatic dishwashing device for reasons of a "sanitary" nature, along with other crap like bath towel racks made of plastic instead of cute little rustic antique wrought-iron hooks. (They also suggested I remove the cowskin mats on the floor - really? On a cattle ranch? Gracious!) Apparently some guests get really offended by such things. Dickheads. Love, R xxx

Well, Jack darling, I did sort of have my suspicions that the films these boys star in - like "Leather Bound" and "Muscle Up" and "Spurs #7", for example - might have been a bit of a dead giveaway.

Smooches, R xxx

I studied criminology and you are correct. Torture in any form, including such basics as constant shouting/berating someone does not produce accurate information. There have been many cases of miscarriages of justice in the UK around the time of the IRA bombings which led to PACE (police and criminal evidence Act) which sets out rules which must be adherred to in order to prevent this kinda thing
from joiedv :
Wouldn't it just be amazing if I did know you! Alas, I have no clue about that. What I have read of your diary made me feel as if I were drinking, and quenching a thirst I didn't know I had. And I mean that in the nicest possible way :)
from orsimblossim :
Yeah, I sure do remember her - she's a riot. And I remember Milkman. I used to curse (tho not as much) and it always riled him too. But we got along well anyways.
from mrscoble :
The studies of Mengele would probably shed the most light on what you're looking for, I would think. I'm sure there's something from the former Soviet Union or the Nazi regime that would give a little information on the subject. When I started reading your entry, I automatically thought of the Nazis. I believe Germany may still be using some of these tactics, as brought into light by recent news reports. Nothing surprising, even though it's sickening to think they might still use some of the methods of that particular regime even today. I doubt we'd see a whole lot of based-in-fact stuff about anything our own government has used. You know how that stuff goes. But yeah... nazis or the KGB. Surely there has to be something out there.

Just kidding about the Black Sox comment.

I think the concept of Poltical Correctness should be arrested, taken out to the brick wall, blindfolded, offered a final cigarette, and then executed by firing squad.

from mrscoble :
I'm considering that we have already worked on two of Iran's neighbors, and that their "leader" hasn't made himself popular with his own people. We of course, can't ignore a nutjob like that, but I think that if we finish what we have started and get the middle east to see us in a different light, they may take out that particular set of crazies on their own. I wouldn't be against Isreal if they decided to wipe a few muslims off the earth, though. The jewish in our own country are so far detatched from what is happening in their own homeland, that they will believe that there's no threat to Isreal itself. How shocked are they going to be when the crazies start really killing people, and passing up on all this nickel-and-dime carbomb shit? Eh... I could go on all day.

Awwww, sorry to read of your news. You know all too well that everything happens for a reason. Unfortunately I've discovered that the reason is quite often simply to piss everyone off :(
from mrscoble :
The problem is, he can't say no. They're short-handed as it is, but they'll replace him if he won't show up for work. He's addressing the issue of the lack of sleep time with his direct supervisor, and giving him time to deal with the issue before he goes to HIS boss. I'm working on getting more plants in the house. Beside their obvious health benefits, they're something that assist in a mentally healthier version of myself. I would drop the kid off, but I hate to inflict others with his attitude. He hates everything lately, or so he says. A couple days ago, he was telling me he hates grass. I'm still trying to figure this out.
from krissallae :
sorry about the not so good news *hugs* you do have a good point about waiting to finish school. I definitely agree with that! I made that exact decision...

Ah, those halcyon days when owning a transistor marked a definite coming-of-age. I still have a few of the Top 40 charts from our hippest local radio station 4IP ("The Good Guys") from that very era. (Before the Holy Trinity [Janis and Jim and Jimi] bought the farm and everything went awry...) According to my older sister (whose musical tastes influenced mine enormously, of course) 1968 was THE YEAR and it's all been downhill ever since. Whenever I stay with her she drags out all her 45s from her high school glory days and plays them for me and we dance in her living room until we fall down laughing. Unfortunately, last time I was there she made me listen to "Honey" three times in a row, followed by "Star Crossed Lovers", which just about made my ears bleed, and an anti-Vietnam Oz chart-buster called "Smiley" ("Smiley/You're off to the Asian War/And we won't see you smile no more...") which always brings me to tears. And yes, I still listen to pretty much everyone on your list on a regular basis. (Do you remember the film with Herman's Hermits, about the greyhound they named Mrs Brown, btw?) And egads, those peculiarly British teeth and that hair! Talk about loveable moptops! Love, R xxx

Wow, Pyro, I thought I was the only one who noticed the racism and the politics at CSK's send-off.

The Praying Mantis Syndrome by Scott Adams: I get many complaints. Usually they take the form of editorial commentary like, "YOU SUCK. RETIRE NOW! GARFIELD RULES!" I appreciate the constructive feedback. It helps me grow as an artist. But lately I have been getting a new type of complaint that I haven't seen before. I call these new complaints the "praying mantis syndrome." Here's how it works: If I drew a cartoon in which, for example, Dilbert accidentally stepped on a praying mantis, I would get letters from people who are sickened by my treatment of religion. They would argue passionately that people who pray should not be regarded as bugs to be stepped on. They will say I am creating a situation of religious intolerance that will lead to genocide. You think I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. Many productive hours are lost to the praying mantis syndrome. As a public service, I have written a short, generic complaint letter that can be used in all future praying mantis syndrome complaints. Just fill in the appropriate blanks: Dear [cartoonist's name], I saw your cartoon dated XX/XX/XX and was shocked and appalled that you would insult the [group not mentioned in the comic]. You wouldn't think it was funny if [a bad thing] happened to a(n) [pick one: woman, African-American, Jew]. Believe me, I am not being "politically correct" when I write this. This time you have gone too far! Signed, [name of nut]

seems to me that if one of your little girlfriends does something that you don't understand or disagree with, you chalk it up to their immaturity and lack of life experience that is allowing them to get sucked up into this "evil" counter-culture. a culture that you've already explored and deemed unnecessary. then if a woman does something to herself that *you* don't think is sexy, she is desecrating her body because she is insecure and can't take compliments. then these women still have the audacity to demand respect! you need to fucking relax, man. you're a really cool guy so you should stop acting like an asshole. oh, you know i love you, right? hahahaahaahaha.

Becoming vegan will ultimately have a positive affect on my health, but that is not why I made the "plunge". I didn't read "The Jungle" or watch "Super Size Me" and then vow to never eat another piece of DEAD ANIMAL FLESH again. The morality of killing animals for food is something that I've battled with for a long time. I've been a vegetarian off and on since the age of fifteen. I also experimented with veganism in college. "What we choose to eat makes a powerful statement about our ethics and our view of the world -- about our very humanity. Whenever we choose not to buy meat, eggs, and dairy products, we withdraw our support from cruelty to animals, undertake an economic boycott of factory farms, and support the production of cruelty-free foods." (VO)Veganism, to me, is an ideal not a fad. As far as these toxic tattoo chemicals you continue to rage about - most professional tattoo inks are mineral or vegetable based pigments. I bet there are more chemicals in ONE of your bacon double cheese burgers than there are in TEN tattoos. Contrary to what you seem to believe, dreads are not an inherently unclean or unsanitary hair style. They're washed and cared for in much the same way regular hair is. Most work places accept well maintained dreads. The CORPORATE job that I have does. My dreads are representative of the lifestyle I strive to lead, they're very natural and require a lot less maintenance and money than my previous hair style. My straight and CHEMICALLY highlighted hair did not reflect, on the outside, the social liberalism I felt on the inside. I'm almost thirty years old, I don't go to high school any more and I am not trying to fit in anywhere or with anyone. Do you ever think about the 6 year old kid in China that gets paid 3 cents a day to make your fucking Dockers? I am rebelling, but what I am rebelling against is the destined future of my son. When my boy grows up, I want him to be able to buy a toothbrush at some place besides Walmart or coffee some where besides Starbucks. I want him to be able to play outside with enthusiasm and to not just stare at a computer screen all day. I don't want him to be obese or to go through puberty at age nine because of the growth hormones he ingest with his chicken nuggets. I want him to realize that women are beautiful even with out being a size two or having fake blond hair. I want him to be able to vote for a president who doesn't lie. I don't want him to have to fight in or die in a war that makes no sense. I'm not sure why you translated my diet or my choice of hairstyle into not being a good wife or mother. OR assuming that my family was not my first and foremost priority. Look around you, man. If your are not scared and not pissed off and not trying your personal best to change the direction in which this world is headed - then you need to wake the fuck up and start rebelling!

I nearly squealed to death in shock when the Colts went down. If you recall, they eliminated the Broncos at the very beginning of the playoffs last year. But, such as it is, I gloated too loudly, and my team lost the AFC championship. Next year, I'll keep my big yap shut. I should take a page from the BoSox Fans Manual.

from scotvalkyrie :
I have actually bought Grade B eggs, as they're sometimes available for 59 cents a dozen in my local store. Grade B eggs tend to be oddly sized and have irregular shell surfaces. The dozens I have bought contained rather large eggs, both brown and white, and yolks tended to be very large and darker than "regular" yolks. It makes me wonder if these eggs are a little more "free range"? Don't know. They cook up and taste just the same.

Y'know, I don't know anyone who would even BUY anything less than a "Grade A" egg, no matter how tight money is. Maybe it has to be rated "Grade A" by the gubment or they make the farmer throw it out?...
from lady-frenzy :
Y’know, Kris is charming, humorous, very sharp… and completely unattainable because she doesn’t like men (Oh, but she isn’t gay either). She just really hates courtship and romantic intimacy. Thank you though ^_^ I accept your compliment! Heheh, we could be like the Andy Warhol’s of the literary world minus the hardcore drugs and the homosexuality (unless you’re game to either). P.S. 3rd gender is transsexual, but I’ll suggest culture jamming for Pagan Republicans as well.
from buttwhore :
He Jack....I was just thinking about you tonight. Is there a reason you were brought into my thoughts? I hope you are okay... I'll talk atcha later.
from jonathan :
You are SO right. I put a plot line together yesterday and there is LITTLE I could use by grabbing entries at random. It jsut becomes a mess ... and a bore. I'll take a look at your erotica.
from mrscoble :
Cut that out. You're making me feel all girly and stuff. I'm going to start crying.
from mrscoble :
I agree with you. Congress has been overstepping state's rights for too long, and they need to stay out of it. As Gorb says, the Constitution starts with the words "We the People", NOT "We the Congress".
from sketty :
LOL, great rant!
from mrscoble :
Yes, the information was very helpful. It definitely gave better context to what we were listening to.
from mrscoble :
I'm here... and if it ever seems like I turned the conversation from your woes to my own life, I apologize. It's habit for me to relate... that's what my sister expects of me, and it's automatic. You just gotta remind me that I'm doing it... but i sort of suppose i wasn't the person you wanted to talk to, huh?
from scotvalkyrie :
Wow, did you just call me a "misguided liberal" in Gaelic? Or did you simply tell me to "sniff the ass pootings of Uther's mother"? Ha-ha! Thanks for the notes and thanks for reading my diary!
from bettyford :
we'll see. but seriously, i think you're sweet and if i didn't like it, i wouldn't want to hurt your feelings so then i'd have trouble being truthful and such. BUT i will tell you this, your little dr. suess-esque rhymes are really fucking good. and yes, i am *that* curious to read, not just the notes you leave for me, but the notes that you leave for other people. ok, i can tell i've said too much.
from bettyford :
i don't like erotica written by men. it's too obvious to do anything for me.
from mrscoble :
Well, not everyone reads all my blogs like you do. You're my one sole stalker-type follower. Don't get me wrong, though. I love you for it. :D
from nightdragon :
Re: your 1/11 piece: You know, I never seem to know what CDs I want either these days. And R. Crumb! I have two comic volumes of his "Fritz the Cat." So entertaining!
from lady-frenzy :
You’re just a bundle of fun, aren’t you?
from bettyford :
i meant lindsey buckingham in that note from way before, not lindsey blair. ok, the mustache must return. fuck corporate, dude! you've got those little dragons (do you make those from scratch?) that sell like fucking hotcakes, man. my ninth grade english teacher had a mustache like that. i fucking loved him. even though i like a mustache i can rub my fingers through during a long romantic naked kiss in fromt of a fire on a bear rug in a cabin in the woods. in canada. also, my dreads are a *statement*. and they itch.
from lady-frenzy :
What, Pyro, worried someday you'll become an aging Jewish man hitting on 21 year old college girls at the campus Earls?
from bettyford :
i did the dead squrriel thing. just send me a link. also, give these dreads a year, my brotha'. by then you'll be wanting to rub them all over your mustache. i thought, YOU, of all people would be supportive of my knatty little soldiers. i love them.
from bettyford :
i can't access the picture! why? why? also, because i'm not down with the white wing dove and shit, i had no idea who lindsey blair was. so i googled it. then i laughed and laughed. then i told k-po (who knew who lindsey blair was immediately) and he laughed and laughed. you, mustache man, are one funny mother fucker. i love it. xoxoxoxoxoxamp
from orsimblossim :
Okay...but what does any of that have to do with my latest? ;)
from hissandtell :
Okay, so now you remind me of someone - could it be Alan Rickman in "Die Hard"? x
from hissandtell :
Obviously either I'm a moron or you're a tease (or possibly both), but I can't unravel that address-thingy. Can you please email it to me, dragonboy? Love, R xxx
from scotvalkyrie :
Cead mile failte back at you! Are you a pyro tech?? I'm a former arena stage manager -- never had to work with the pryo myself, but I've coiled too damn many FOH snakes that were covered in puke. Thanks for adding me! Oh, and you like Heinlein, you should SEE my Hubster's book collection. Everything Sci-fi from soup to nuts.
from mrscoble :
Thank you for the fountain of knowledge for a simple question. It's just part of a Flogging Molly song! :D
from lady-frenzy :
Ahahah! I saw the R. Crumb Handbook too. Oooh, I like Devil Girl-- I even had DG candy (all gone!) He made music? No kidding?!
from mrscoble :
Speaking of your parting words, sort of... Gorb has discovered new music that he's getting into (things like that happen in this home?!?), and he wants to know what "roisin duhb" means, if you know. :)
from bettyford :
i didn't even know about the moustache. and then i find out only in some brief mention of it being butchered? it's a good thing i'm too tired to be mad. i need a switch. hold me.
from lady-frenzy :
That's why I'm attending University-- to unsoiled my mind of the debilitating hive-mind properties of MTV. (Me fail English? That unpossible!)
from mrscoble :
Out of that whole thing, I think the part I will remember for a while is how you worded "cock block".
from lady-frenzy :
Ya, see, umm, you grew up with the album and I grew up watching Sesame Street... I don't own the album, though my father does have the LP... sigh... Sometimes I feel as though I'll remain 9 years old forever...
from bettyford :
no freakin' way, man. not with your mistress history and my abandonment issues.
from lady-frenzy :
No dark side of the moon? That kinda makes me sad... How is cookie monster ever going to find his way now...?
from mrscoble :
Not even with my age, which almost makes me a sage! Not on these hips, whose pain is voiced with my lips. My uterus is broken! My back is shot! These demands are making me hot! Yet I will never refuse practice. (What rhymes with that?!?)
from mrscoble :
No! No, I say! Not even while eating stew or sniffing glue! Not while in pain or on a plane. A mile high or a mile below. Whatever the place or reason, the answer is still no!
from mrscoble :
Not by anyone. Not in a bar, not in a car, not in the air. Not even, NOT EVEN, on the stairs. I will not hatch another turd. Mark me well! Mark my words! ;)
from mrscoble :
You do realize that blogging circles always suck, right? I haven't even found a stay at home mother's community worth hanging around. (I don't give a shit if your kid is teething and you're on the rag, dammit!) Obviously, all they do is complain and shower sympathy on one another, instead of doing as they should, and discovering the JOYS of being mothers. But I'm on a rant. It's as bad as the groups who call their work "poetry". There's very little actual poetry on the internet either, and much of the stuff that qualifies sucks, too. I'm still your biggest fan, though. WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO GET MORE WORK PUBLISHED, GODDAMNIT? I'm running out of real work to read.
from sketty :
I was engrossed in this entry; brilliant :)
from buttwhore :
I just wanted to leave you a little note to tell you that that was a sweet story and that I fucking love ya.
from bettyford :
so what you're saying is that i should just come back with a round of jaw, right? hahaha, you're right though. I need to learn to fight fair. it's also good to get advice from a dude. b/c my husband is a dude.
from nilliem :
Well, have you tried Modesitt's 'Ecolitan' series? You might even like his 'Recluse' series. Heinlein is my all-time favorite, too, and I understand the sci-fi/fantasy challenge of balance. I'm not a fan, but what I've read of David Weber's seems like it might be up your alley. Airy-fairy makes me smile, lol. If you ask me more questions, I might be able to give you more ideas, at least to check out the blurbs at Amazon, before you head to Borders. I need questions to get the brain working hehe.
from hissandtell :
Hmmm. I always recommend Robert G Barrett books to blokes I know. (http://www.robertgbarrett.com.au/robertgbarrett/books/index.htm) Actually, I don't, but he is an Oz author who taps into a particular blokin' market with vast success... Love, R xxx
from rae-babe :
Hmmmm...It seems I have been having a similar discussion at my Church Blog: http://www.elevation.cc/blog/entry.asp?ENTRY_ID=58
from bindyree :
I just had to stop in here and tell you Happy New Year! And even if we don't always agree on stuff, that's okay. I'm glad you're on my Buddy List. Blessed be! ♥
from sketty :
Yay, I'm liking you even more!!!! :)
from lady-frenzy :
Heheh, 'Mother's Little Helper'... Mmm, would I marry for prescription drugs? I wonder...
from newsoulie :
No, thou shalt not have my username and password!! (hehe, check your emails sweetheart).
from mrscoble :
Wait... are buddhists and hindus both anti-cow munching folk?
from sketty :
Yay, I found an interesting pagan (who understands my humor and likes my evil face!) I will read you forever more :)
from lady-frenzy :
Y'know, I'm not an herbal remedy kind of girl... Something to do with what a train passenger once told me the morning after some college guy had molested me while I was drunk and I had just escaped: "You look like shit. Can't sleep? You should try an herbal remedy, blah, blah..." Makes me sick to my stomach everytime...
from mrscoble :
He wasn't going to argue that the bible was better. Just that there are no redeeming passages in the koran.
from orsimblossim :
Booger collection? Pssshhhttt....ain't nothin' compared to my Band-Aid Ball and jar of spit. :)
from orsimblossim :
Oh yeah, and about Aqua Teen...what can I say? I gravitate towards cheap laughs. Or maybe it's all the damn cold medicine I've been taking that makes it even funnier. (Yes, of all the times to have a cold, it's when I actually have the time to go out and enjoy life. Phooey.)
from orsimblossim :
Yep, it was B&B by a curly fry worm. The reason why Beavis & Co won out in my book was because R&S eventually jumped the shark and B&B never did. :)
from mrscoble :
I read your latest entry to Gorb. He wants to argue with you about the Koran.
from mrscoble :
Aw, c'mon! Don't you think the little booger deserves some Nathan's, or some Hebrew Nationals? Besides, he doesn't yark ANY hotdog up. He's that greedy when it comes to his pig anuses.
from nilliem :
'tis indeed!!
from bettyford :
you're like a male version of martha stewart. like a martin stewart. thanks for the tip, yo! i'm totally going to do that next year (or so i say now).
from dragonmakr :
While I appreciate the thought, I don't think I'd like a book called "kitty sniper." Get it for you, if you want it though. Oh- and I first saw Aeon Flux on MTV 'round about 1991, so it's older than you thought!
from zalitar :
Still, you seem pretty happy most of the time for a life that's fallen apart.
from bettyford :
nice metaphor. dumb bitch.
from krissallae :
10 years? Really, I remember watching aeon flux as well, haven't got to the theatre yet tho. like wailing trumpets hm, ever listened to maynard ferguson? or bill chase?
from mrscoble :
Wake up? Hell, I wrote that before I thought about going to bed!
from lady-frenzy :
An eye for an eye will leave the world blind; but if it keep degenerate human-hating pantywaists out of the general populace, then brother, make me sightless. Ashes to ashes... sentient litter walks the plank.
from bettyford :
i'm blushing.
from mrscoble :
Bless you and anyone who thinks the way you do. I don't think Tookie has really changed, either. He sure doesn't feel sorry for what he's done.
from mrscoble :
I already did something for myself, though. I got a hardback copy of a book I've wanted. I admit, I paid $5 for a $35 item, but it's in just like new condition, and I'm enjoying it. (I'm getting used to keeping cut back so I can spend the money for Meatball to go to a daycare half a day a couple days a week anyway.)
from lady-frenzy :
Schucks, you’re right. What got to me (or shouldn’t have gotten to me) was that I didn’t even realize she Native until she snapped at me. Dark hair and lightly tanned skin could be a number of things… She had blue eyes for Godsakes! By the way, did you switch blogs (Yahoo blog)? If I may say, I didn’t even realize your age until I saw your picture. Take it as a compliment-- you sound very youthful.
from nilliem :
Hey, any guy who calls me adorable just got big bonus points!! :) And the laugh was because the entry I read first just tickled my funny bone. Thanks for adding me!
from bindyree :
no matter which word you think I should use to describe what happened, the facts still stand. *MY* main concern was, is, and always has been how the media will spin this. As more details come to light, will the things like what the guy was wearing / saying / doing continue to be described in volatile terms? Or will we just turn into sheep and say 'another one bites the dust'...? All I am saying is that somebody being shot on an airplane -- for any reason -- should never be something that's taken lightly. As a whole, our society shouldn't get pummeled until it gets used to death as a way of life.
from hissandtell :
I've never called them rubbers in my life, sir! They're gumboots, or wellies (ie Wellington boots), silly. Mind you, we don't call prophylactics "rubbers" either - they're frangers. Oh, you funny lexically-challenged Americans, you. (So, have you sent my card yet?) Love, R xxx
from sbsneech :
that bow was there before you got there!!! and I'll shoot anyone who says otherwise!
from bindyree :
I don't disagree with what happened to the guy who got shot by the air marshals. I'm more concerned with the media either being too gentle and nonplussed, as if we are expected to fall into sheeplike lockstep and accept an assassination of a mentally ill person by federal employees as normal -- OR the other profoundly wrong thing would be to be spinning it the OTHER way and making the marshals the victims. There's just no objective media that is based in this country anymore. :-(
from mrscoble :
And may God bless the souls of the men who died at Pearl Harbor, and those who fought (and died) to bring justice for their deaths. Not that you didn't know I thought that. ;)
from mrscoble :
My first thought was, "Who the fuck hires a mentally unstable FLIGHT ATTENDANT?" Don't they need to be sane to deal with passengers? If you ask me, the attendant, as shown by certain actions, knew the bomb was there and intended to use it.
from zalitar :
Odd to see a conservative arguing for labor unions, as they are a fairly liberal bunch. Your view of fair or not fair is WAY out left field Pyro. I was shocked to see you even remotely bring it up. "Is that fair?" Are you kidding me? The whole liberal idology is based on the lowest commen demoniniator of fairness. Unions are an idea whose time has past. I wouldn't join a union with a gun to my head. I don't want them fighting for me or my benefits. I'll do that on my own, thank you very much, during my own evaluations. They may call people who cross the picket lines to work a "scab" but why should I care. They're all the just a buch of "LCO's," and I'll never be the lowest common denominator. Meritocracy works better.
from lady-frenzy :
My mommy taught me never to be a scab... They burn in the seventh layer of hell supposedly...
from krissallae :
hey there. I tried to send you an email last night, but it seems your email at diaryland is no longer available. Oh well...
from hissandtell :
Are you at all familiar with the Federal Industrial Relations changes in Oz, darling? Legislation was passed in the Senate on Friday, but the ACTU says the fight has only just begun... You can read about bits of it at http://www.nuw.org.au/articles/nat/campaigns/wr2005/articles/newlegis - it's pretty bloody scary, I tell you. Love, R xxx
from buttwhore :
hey darling! yes, they did break up...hmm. It's all confusing and he calls ALL the time now. It's very weird. You need to sleep some more. Your body cant fight infections with out sleep.
from krissallae :
hiya, thanks for the heads up on the Chicago highway nightmare. I take it you're from that area. And thanks for supporting me and my interviews. The company is cool- but I don't want the office job, heh. I want to actually see the planes- touch the planes the company supervises. Not sits behind a monitor and say, "oh looky, that compressor damage is going to cost $40,000 to repair" hehe, boring.
from sizmatters :
Yep, bookworms are hot! and one thing about this here "Diaryland"...when forced to actually THINK about your goings-on, and in writing about them...you come to realize just how messed up your situation really sounds! real eye-opener...it sort of disgusts me about my own self, I need to get a backbone and just a smidgeon of self respect and QUIT taking all this b.s.! yep...I am going to work on that, so thanks for getting me to "update" my sad, sorry, sordid life....deep sigh.....and THANKS again you thoughtful soul........
from lady-frenzy :
Thanks, Pyro. ^_~
from mrscoble :
I've been wanting to ask, since you first mentioned her... has your Desiree ever lived in Texas? (It was the similarities that make me think I might know her, not the name.)
from hissandtell :
Um, where may I read your "Texas Truck" story, please? Do you have a website I need to look at? Love, R xxx
from mrscoble :
Oh, and what came from the 'grumpy button' this evening... ::fart:: Enjoy!
from mrscoble :
The stuff about Sony music is partially correct, far as I can tell. They're currently dealing with class action lawsuits, and have had to recall all disks with the program on it, because viruses have piggybacked on this crap they tried to do. Not to mention, they're having to replace people's CDs for free, and have to correct the issue for anyone who so much as played the disk on their computer. Not rip. Not copy. Just PLAY it. Quite frankly, I'll be leery of all their stuff from now on. Shady bastards. What they did is illegal, at least in this country.
from zalitar :
Well, of course I'm an outragious Christian, but I won't argue any points. I would say there are some mild historical issues about when the Roman church became the Catholic church, and when they co-opted the celebration for Sol the sun god and turned it into Christmas. Shepards aren't out tending their flocks in the fields in December. But I'll still choose to worship Him, plus all the other fun stuff that comes along with Christmas, which is more about worshiping life in general. Besides, if it weren't for Christmas, I wouldn't be able to dress up as Santa for Holloween next year.
from hissandtell :
Well, of course you're quite correct, darling. But do you mean there are still those out there who believe we're actually celebrating the whole baby-Jesus's-birthday business? Well, gracious! How oddly woo-woo some mainstream people can be in this "age of enlightenment"! Love, R xxx
from mrscoble :
You shall get no flack from us. We know "christmas" was a hijacked pagan holiday. I'm still going to revel in the commercialized season and spoil the shit out of the kids.
from mrscoble :
I can't tell you why it's not working. I'll send you an email from the home account. I don't get it, though. All three have been working fine for me.
from mrscoble :
You know, I always think of Minnesota when I hear "norwiegan". I mean, the accent. Yah.
from zalitar :
Sure do like them Minnesotans. Even when they're North Dakotans.
from hissandtell :
Ah, that's better, my love. I shall now attempt to reciprocate with something, um, fitting for you... Love, R xxx
from sizmatters :
Hi, so sorry I think i fell off the face of the DIARYLAND planet! yikes. I was doing a stint on ebay, and then pay pal royally f--ked up my account, and now they are holding several hundred $$ of mine, HOSTAGE for 6 months! I really enjoyed making my cool banners, and I still need to get my stories "published" and I appreciate your taking the TIME to give me advise/help on that! you are super (and I am a dork for using that word, I know...) ANYWAY, hope to get back to DIARYLAND soon, because ebay-pay pal world doesn't seem to like me all that much!! plus USC is kicking ass this year and I am just SWAMPED !!!
from lady-frenzy :
Aww... but what can I say? The things we'll do for sex, eh?
from zalitar :
Fireman, I WANT you to not care about other people. I WANT you to think about your own wants. I WANT you to be a little more selfish.
from hissandtell :
Oh, I should add: only if that's what you *want*, my love. Smoochpiepies. x
from hissandtell :
Um, HORNDOG? Tell you what - get rid of that sacy reference on my profile description and you're on, baby boy. Love, R xxx
from loversvanity :
i know. & its a shame. i'm kind of not here lately. how have you been?
from nightdragon :
Nonsense. I don't consider it at all odd that you're conservative and pagan. Unlike the fascist liberals, I believe in the right to follow whatever faith one's heart leads one. I myself am a Deist. I am strongly sympathetic towards Jews and Judaism, but I consider myself proto-Christian ... so I guess I won't make it as a Jew, because I love Jesus too much! Anyway, it just makes sense that there was an almighty Creator and that he may have tried to make contact to us through a fellow human ... That's the sum of my religious beliefs; I'm not too serious about it, but I do believe. And there is something deeply attractive about loving the Earth as our mother. God the father who planted his seed in Mother Earth ... I like the idea!
from orsimblossim :
psssst....hey, Horndog. I updated my diary template. Check it out. ;)
from rae-babe :
Thank you so very much for that entry. When ever I have a bad day out here missing my family (which is every other moment of every day when I think of my Isaiah) it's nice to know that there are people out there like you who do appreciate what I'm doing. You may not be such a rare breed but sometimes it's hard to see that people who support us exist when all the colorful "Peace" signs and burning flags are flying in the way.
from hissandtell :
Ohhhhhhh...you quote Mill and everything. That's just clinched things for me for good, you realise? (Did I ever tell you how I've taken tea with Jeremy Bentham [well, his Auto-Icon, at least] at University College London?)Love, R xxx
from orsimblossim :
*L* Of course not. She's a girl dog. ;)
from zalitar :
Dude. Of course you go. Time??? Whats time??? It's something you can't get back. Thats what time is. I wish a dozen times every day I had spent more time with my brother. Money is something else. Money always got in my way of spending time. No mon, no fun. But if you can pinch together and scrape and find the money somehow, then go man. Go.
from bindyree :
No two people handle families the same way. You do whatever you know you can live with. Please know I'm thinking of you and your mother, and hope whatever happens, happens in the best way possible. Candles alight for you, my friend.
from hissandtell :
My advice (as if you care) is "Go". Love, R xxx
from nightdragon :
Well, you made my day! It's always nice when those banners fetch me new readers ... and especially nice when they're ones who agree with me. Heh, j/k, I'm not THAT conceited. I don't write as often as I used to, but I try to never go too long without an entry. My writing is my art, so I am careful not to write if my ideas are too short or sloppy ... Just out of curiosity, did you click on the "Secret of NIMH" one or the "Screw sex" one? ... I love dragons myself, I've got no end of dragon stuffed animals and figurines. They're beautiful creatures ... I will friend you back and I hope to have further conversations with you. Leave me a guestbook entry or note anytime. All the best, ND
from lady-frenzy :
Yeah! Constructive criticism! *takes hug*
from bindyree :
Awwww, you're sweet. love you tooooo!!!! seriously if you need to boot me, that's cool. i'll survive. SNIIFFFFF. ... did you see my senior prom pic? s'over there right now!!!!
from hissandtell :
Hold the bus - I only make you laugh? I don't make you think, or fall in love with me? I am, as you might imagine, shattered. Shattered and horrified. Shattered, horrified and cross. Shattered, horrified, cross and a tad hungry. I shall retreat to the corner of my kitchen to eat cheesecake and regroup, and then we'll see who starts disappearing, maaate! Smoochypiepies, R xxx
from zalitar :
Awwww... sorry mate. You can have my 10 year old 19 inch 80 lb. CRT hunkajunk if you want. You'll have to cover shipping since I just paid $1100.00 for a monitor. I'm kinda broke now. You'll love it... if it doesn't break your back when you pull it out of the box.
from lady-frenzy :
Naw, I don't want to temp myself with pills again... I always over-do them...
from orsimblossim :
HEY! SACY! I've been super duper compliment-arily nice to you for HOW many years? And yet the only pic I've ever seen of you has whiskers drawn on your face? WhatamI, chopped liver? *sob* ;)
from orsimblossim :
Hmm. Well, maybe one of these days when I actually have time I can look into what's going on, or maybe find another template. But I really like the one I have now..... :-\
from lady-frenzy :
Thanks, Pyro, (and even though he now thinks I'm contrived) I'll be sure to take him out.
from sbsneech :
aww.. pooor pyro. I haven't been checking either LJ or here much.. so.. I sowwy
from grassyknoll :
I think I'm coming down with something too. Might it have something to do with working almost 60 hours last week on top of having two nights of sk00l?....*cry*
from hissandtell :
Grrr, you cure-ful old cagey tiger, you. You know, darling, we should have each other with cream some time, and bite and scratch and scream all night... Love, R xxx
from sbsneech :
dude! the old fart knows more than I do about Gavin Rossdale! *grins* So... how much might it cost me to get a bodice? I'm almost rolling in cash... but not really. I might be in a situation where I can save though.
from bindyree :
You mentioned in my comments section about it being Scottish weekend, and that reminded me of this: The Rolling Stones recorded a special version of "Hey You, Get Off Of My Cloud" just for Scotland. It's called "Hey, McCloud, Get Off Of My Ewe."
from sizmatters :
Hi, just a little note to say THANKS for leaving me a note re: my diary...and the ADVISE to "dump the bastard" sounds SO good...on paper !! Yep, I am the only sane one in the group...for sure. I plan to go and read YOUR stuff now....
from kestra :
Hi! I just found your diary... I had to say that one of your entries reminded me of somebody, and I had to think about it. Another person that I know of had complained about the same thing, all the dust at the Renn Faire, and I remembered that person complained about some medical ailment because of it, and I was wondering if you were the same person, but after reading back on the messages, I realized that the person I was thinking of had said "bronchitis" not ear infections. Oh well, that kind of coincidence would be really weird anyway! Well, probably useless information, but anyway, I like your diary and how you include your take on the news (I've never heard of freedom fighters before, but that reeks of a feel-good euphemism) Oh, I like your idea for a shirt too!
from zalitar :
By the way, have you had a chance to read any of what I sent you?
from zalitar :
I mentioned that I was a heartless bastard in my post. What can she do, call me a heartless bastard??? Besides, Jellybellybuttonbean adores me.
from secret-sacy :
I can't believe you DARED to call me a pain the ass, facetious peasant that you are. *snubs my nose in decidedly princessy way* I'm much more like a delicious whipping, or even an enjoyable spanking. *snaps fingers* I demand a rewrite! (Though thanks for saying I'm sexy. Can't stop grinning ;)
from zalitar :
I was hoping that the UN wouldn't donate anything. They're going to be HORRIBLE to live with now. Always saying shit like, "Hey, remember that time I lent you that $50 bucks," and "You never DID pay us back when we bailed you out that one time," and "We want our damn lawn mower back Ned. All you ever do is borrow shit from us." Yea, the UN is going to be unbarable after this.
from pyroguysr :
Jelly, I can't respond to that because it has no basis in reality on your part. I'm sorry that you and your expatriate husband hate the U.S. so much.

from secret-sacy :
p.s. I like it that you are calling me Panna now. And thanks for the smooch! One right back at ya, baby.
from secret-sacy :
Oh Jelly, I love you, please come back! We can fight the good fight together. (Which is crushing Jack ;). By the way, thanks for the new description, except it negates the need for me to write this: "However, you ARE too old to procrastinate. Which brings me to a topic that makes me irate. Unless you write something nice about me by a certain date, you shall meet a deadly fate". *grin* Pretty good, huh? (And I DID check out hissandtell. She is a name dropping whore, and she is only here for the presents and the attention. Her diary has NO soul. MINE DOES. I demand that you put my name back underneath Sneech, where it belongs, so we can have profile sex (with lots of exclamation marks, just pour vous) ;)
from breakthedark :
Many thanks for the compliment, and the add. I noticed you do Renn faires, huzzah! Take care, and look forward to reading more of you. ~J

We have to STOP anthropomorphizing animals. It embarrasses them. :-D
from jellyrose :
BOOOOO!! Missing in action?? Dude, I was suffering from an overdosis of Americana :P
from secret-sacy :
What on earth is a ZARD? *L* As for your note on Sneech's page, you're not too old to date. You're not even too old to mate. You're only too old to meditate, because being in a zen state is not something you and your hyperactive mind would appreciate. My rhyming is great. p.s. Your excuse = poo. There are tonnes of people still with descriptions on your list who have never even had a diary! *slaps you again, because quite frankly, it's enjoyable*
from bindyree :
Sakura? Ohhhh could you possibly mean Card Captor Sakura? I saw that at a coed slumber party about a year ago and loved it. :)
from curiouoso :
Thanks for checking out my pages. We seem to have some things in common. Hope you enjoyed. Curiouoso*

p.s. Mofo
from secret-sacy :
Whoa, wait one minute .... you put my name down in the dank, dark, lonely, rejectified, POO section of your profile - without a description?! I *loved* my old description. And not just because it was at the top - *ladylike, yet hard, slap*. You are so not getting any photos, Mister. :P
from secret-sacy :
LOL! I am picturing you twirling your handlebar moustache and I can't stop cackling .... are you wearing a silk smoking jacket too? *grin* As for the pictures, well .... I am open to bribes. I can't just *give* them away, obviously. That would be too easy. It's not like 3 years is ages or anything *L* Hmmm, have you thought about being super duper compliment-arily nice to me? ;)
from secret-sacy :
*leaves exactly approximately a very young sounding number of spanks, right here, for your very young and vital self to pick up whenever you're not dreadfully busy doing young and exciting things* Oh, and a nice long smoochy kiss, too. Happy Birthday!
from hissandtell :
You know, I pondered and pondered what was boring about 51, and then I got so confused I forgot to leave you a note. I still can't think of anything profound or witty to say, so I'll simply suggest that, if you were a wedding anniversary, you'd be somewhere between Gold and Emerald: and that's NOT to be sneezed at, precious. But according to my list of "Appropriate Vegetables and Fruits Presents for Really Old People's Birthdays" - you know, the one I made up just now - the appropriate gift for you would be a Bok Choi. (And hey, at our age, we need all the carotenoids we can get.) Happy birthday, darling Jack - much love. Smooches, R xxx

Happy Birthday. I hope it's a tolerable one.

HAPPY BIRTDAY, you old perv. *grins* And I did find another topless picture for your prezzie if you're interested...(Granted, I am also less than a year old in all of these...)

My mum has more fun at that age than she did when she was 40 *grins* so give it a go hehe. Happy birthday for tomorrow. *hug*

You've seen my Diaryland. Isn't that sample enough ;)? Actually, I think that comment was just a fit of conceit. It happens sometimes. My poetry is, in fact, babbling and often inhoherent. Take care, and thanks for the read.

hmmm, chocolate in the crack? Not good. Waste of chocolate. I warn you though, sometimes my random thoughts can be quite disturbing. ;-) Zoot

*Blushes*
from breakthedark :
Hey there! Thanks for the add :)
from hissandtell :
Thank you, darling Jack, you sweetheart. (I love you madly and I adore anyone who can write excellent run-on sentences, as you may have guessed.) That was bloody hysterical! And I LOVE that you were to the left of centre, of course... It made me think of being in a shopping mall once where John Denver was going to be signing records. My friend and I were looking at the signs everywhere and saying, "Oooh! He's here soon! We should go and meet him!" when I turned around in a hurry and knocked a man over. He dropped like a stone (prophetic, really) and I helped him up and chatted to him for a little while about how I'd been too busy looking at the sign blah blah and he was terribly polite and said he was heading over there too, and as he walked away my friend and I whispered evilly about how he was obviously a full-on JD fan because he dressed just like him and had the same haircut and how sad it was when people emulate famous people ... and yes, of course, as we discovered a little later, it really was him. So that's my claim to fame: I knocked over John Denver. (Actually, I have a couple of other claims to fame, too, which I may share some time.) So anyway, did Pompous Kris ask after me over the pork chops? Much love, R xxx
from zalitar :
I might say that Muslim leaders are doing enough when they start issuing FATWA's stating that it is every Muslims duty to search out and kill the evil radicals who are destroying the religion of Islam by their wicked terrorist ways. It would be minor progress, but at least a little. Just speaking out about it doesn't do a damn thing. Start fighting it with real weapons. Start actually hunting them down and killing them.
from zalitar :
I MIGHT be in Raleigh. A: I have to actually get the job. So far it's at about 99% for sure. Then I have to be the one deployed to that site. I'm not sure if it's a team effort at each site or if everyone gets a different site. BUT, if I do end up there then I'll be sure to let you know a few weeks before hand so we can shake hands and slice steak.
from secret-sacy :
I couldn't read the rest of your post after this bit: "This tends to get others aggravated with me because I don't do chores". I was too busy cackling. Hahahahahah
from minnapop :
No. It means you didn't find it worth your time and energy, just to cause an argument. Notice how I didn't leave a note THERE, but just quietly ranted over here where there won't be fireworks...And I didn't find it worth my time to inform THEM about such things. I was just about to explode if I didn't get it out somewhere. You're still okay. *hands you a cookie and sends you off to play in your tutu*
from minnapop :
Must be the pull of the moon or something today, J-man...Sorry 'bout earlier.
from loversvanity :
if i cared enough about it, i would ask. but i dont. & to me theres a fairly big difference between this & saying they're going to start charging at free sites. so dont post. its all good.

no problem. but i trust jack. hes a good guy. thats good enough for me.
from zalitar :
Oh, I pressed. The Presidents room was being rented out by a couple who was building a house near by. They paid $10,000.00 up front for 6 months. That was the managers reserved suite. They also had 2 other rooms that they mainatained on hold for booking problems, but they also were taken already.

Hehe. Ok, you paint her toes and I'll french braid her hair. But I don't have a foot thing so I could always save time to paint your toes after. : )

Weeding is damn dirty work. No one likes weeding. Plus then whatever you just weeded looks all empty after...(*ahemnotespage*) And if you're determined to grow something worthwhile instead of those silly weeds...Well, it's a notes page. And I think that's like planting a creeping charley, but telling yourself it's a hibiscus. Wow. Poetic, no? Okay, so it's just silly and kida ranty. Do what you will, Mr. Maybe-I-have-a-green-thumb-for-notes...;)
from mrscoble :
P.S. - Love you to bits. Call me sometime. ;)
from mrscoble :
Weed out the notes if you want to. I'm going to be mean anyway. Goddamnit, the reason you could write is because you motivated yourself. Fuck external muses. If you don't stop moping, I might find some way to get the funds to show up just to kick you in the ass. Okay, never mind that. Moping is okay. But goddamnit! YOUR inspiration this week is YOU. Not sex, not external forces. NOT SQUIRRELS. Just you. Now get on it, and I expect to hear a goddamn story by next week, motherfucker!
from pyroguysr :
OK... who things I need to weed out all these notes? In other words, should I delete them all?
from minnapop :
WHERE ARE YOU!? Get yer tush back to a 'puter or else! I wait around for you and you never show up and I write messages and your responses are never there when I go to read them and I just plain feel like I'm really really alone when people like you who I've always been the same far-away from have stopped making contact. Save me from my solitude....
from mrscoble :
I don't know what to say about it. I read that last week, and I just sat to hang my head. It's a shame that there really isn't any religious freedom in this country. At all. For anyone.

Well said.

You know I'm full of crap. And you did have me pegged wrong. I like to be on top.

I enjoyed your story very much, Hermie. (You tart; I like that in a man.) Congratulations on being published, darling. Love, R xxx
from secretinside :
Ahh, Pyro - that key is in the corner of some Chicago hotel room, gathering dust, rust, and other sorts of ick. Too bad. But it would probably still work if you wanted to go find it ;-)
from hissandtell :
On a slightly-related note, darling, you may appreciate this article from "Media Watch" (an Oz ABC programme which "exposes media shenanigans") about censorship by Oz media in their current coverage of an Australian hostage in Iraq: http://www.abc.net.au/mediawatch/transcripts/s1357627.htm ; previously, you see, we'd been shown excruciatingly detailed video and audio footage of distressed American and British hostages... Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Oh, forget that love-fatal and marry ME, darling! I adore poetry-fanciers. (Or you could just send me your e-book, at least.) Amusing cowboy philosophy - I've actually heard it as a quasi-song recorded by Michael Martin Murphey. Yep, 'round these parts we're partial to such "Don't Squat With Yer Spurs On" curmudgeonly musings, too. ("If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.") Much love, R xxx
from love-fatal :
ahahaha. your comment for me on your profile made me laugh.
from secretinside :
Howdy Mr. Pyro, 'member me? (heh, I said member...) It's Saranade from Lit chat, think way back now - but don't hurt yourself. Anyhoo, I now have a diary here, which will probably be very very boring for quite some time (man, I sure know how to sell stuff!), but it'd be cool if'n you wanted to read it sometime. I'd be honored - that is, if you think you can handle the absurdly exciting world of sticking your hand up a cow ass. I do quietly follow yours (your journal, that is, not your hand... you know where...). If I need to do something in order to "give you the key" to my diary, I'm sure I'll figure it out here pretty soon. So, yeah, here I am. :-) Been a long time. P.S. WFMT is streaming again, woo!
from love-fatal :
ahah. one person actually told me i was going to burn in hell eternally. i was like, who SAYS that??
from love-fatal :
oh jack, i love you. lets get married.
from mrscoble :
It's possible he was younger than I guessed, but I've met a lot of very dense 19 year olds. I mean, how many people think using an old joke works on someone pushing a decade older than themselves? Whose was that? Foxworthy? Engvall? Clay? I don't know, but it was only funny the first three million times I heard it. (I might be overexaggerating.)
from mrscoble :
But you didn't lick my *fingers*, silly.
from mrscoble :
I'm *sweet* now? Crap. I need to work on my reputation. ;)
from mrscoble :
What kind of girl do you take me for?!? (I at least need a dinner. Sheesh.)
from love-fatal :
hey, you signed off, it was sad. but yes, still hot for the teacher. & nothing is happening. well. not to the extent that i want it to. & i'm semi-hot for other guys on & off. & as always, hot for you too. come kidnap us princessss. ♥

You know I'm not above a bad joke. Even ones about one eyed, one armed, flying purple Papal leaders.
from hissandtell :
You are very naughty, you know. I suppose I'll just have to add you next time I update my profile, darling. (Oh, seriously, thank you - I'm hugely flattered because I love your writing.) And the romance covers link is just about the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. At least, if there were something funnier that I'd seen somewhere, I can't recall it... Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Well, of course she was quite a madwoman. But whenever were madness and brilliance mutually exclusive, darling? (BTW, I've met Frieda Hughes, and I would never dream of denigrating that murderous bastard Ted; besides which, I happen to adore ALL Poet Laureates.) Anyway, I don't know why I'm even leaving you this note, since you never seem to remember who I am from one day to the next! Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Well, how rude. I'm in the outback with the cows and the jackaroos as we speak, darling, teasing out the allusions over a Cask of Amontillado and a mythological dictionary. And I'm thinking: "Pike, three inches long, perfect ... With a sag belly and the grin it was born with." Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Thanks so much for your note, and the frank admission of your gender-based visual inadequacies! I shall return to your diary to read more about the Liberal Fascist and her futile (and facile, and infantile) attempts to get the better of you. Love, R xxx
from love-fatal :
i've got an almost decent picture of myself. whats your email?
from grassyknoll :
That's the thing, though: Congress was perfectly within their constitutional rights to question the judicial branch's decision -- especially with a literal life-and-death issue. There were only a handful of judges that decided Terri should die. There are 535 members of Congress. That's why we (are supposed to) have a system of "checks and balances". It just doesn't get more democratic and constitutionalist than that. They didn't say: "We order you not to kill Terri", but simply "We urge caution in killing this woman and think the case should have another look." That's all.
from mrscoble :
Efficient my lily white hiney. The only reason he's coming back that early is because they can't get their scheduling straight. heh heh. Then again, I'm okay with that.

heh heh...Oh, but if you only knew how un-pomeranian she is. Quiet as hell (I've only heard her make one tiny yip since I brought her home)....as un-highstrung as they come. Believe me when I say, she's a TOTAL doll baby....
from mrscoble :
Would you believe that month has been cut down to 18 days now? It's possible that he might be gone longer, but it sounds like they're going to be forced to come back on April 14th. I can actually hold out that long. That, and your pheromones don't smell the same as his do. *grin*

from grassyknoll :
I only agree in the death penalty for the most heinous of crimes and the most dangerous of criminals (i.e. just about all child rapists, because they'll never ever be able to stop their urge to hurt little kids). And while it might have some fallout for a few years, I still think that any civilized society absolutely needs to rid itself of legalized abortion. Killing an innocent child simply because the circumstances of its conception don't coincide with someone else's plans is sheer madness. Because like Mother Teresa said: "If a society can tell a mother that it's okay to kill her unborn child, how can it tell the rest of its citizens not to kill each other?" And while I appreciate and FORGIVE Ms. Roe for her change of heart, I still can't FORGET that it was her patsyism that led to the deaths of 45 million innocent American babies. She's certainly going to need a lot of prayer for her role in Roe vs. Wade. The thought of the weight she carries makes my head spin.

Fuck you're old, and set in your ways, and you think you know everything. It's horrible to read your petty and prejudiced rants, Jack. The worst thing is, you are going to laugh at me, and vote for who you want to vote for, and you won't care that you pissed me off at all. So I really don't know why I bother.

As biased and sneaky and hyopcritical and opportunistic as Michael Moore is, he's not a liar. Sorry guys, his facts stand up. If you need to smear him in order to avoid dealing with the truth, then that's really sad.
from secret-sacy :
Why do you insist on sharing your right-wing, emotionally mutated, propagandised and wannabe influential opinions on fucking DIARYLAND? The world (and half of America) hates Bush, because he is a retarded psychotic asshole. If you need to call everyone who agrees with me a liar, or try to discredit them in some way, just so you can justify your opinion, then go ahead. But nobody, except the already-converted, is going to believe you.

from tariqa :
I thought I should also mention to you that in the countries you mentioned in your note to me, it is highly unlikely they have the huge numbers of immigrants learning their language. In California, it is not unusual to have Latinos, Russians, Thai, Vietnamese, Cambodians, and Iranians in the same classes. I teach reading and writing to students who have not learned to read in traditional classroom setting. My first student was a 4th grade boy from Okinawa. He could "read" the words, but hadn't a clue about the meaning of any but the simplest of words. We worked endlessly on vocabulary -- talking, studying roots and affixes. A real challenge for a teacher with three or four of these kinds of students in her class. I doubt that teachers in Sweden have this problem.
from tariqa :
And if the teachers didn't have to spend so much time testing and preparing for testing and worrying about whether they were going to meet the criteria set by State and federal government, they might be able to really teach. The textbooks adopted by California this year (for math, at least) and the standards (all first graders should know their addition and subtraction facts to 20 by the end of first grade). My daughter just finished her Ed.D. dissertation, pre-testing and post-evaluating several first grade classes throughout the L.A. area. Her findings showed that less than 2% of the students have been able to do that. However, 2nd grade teachers will have to move on as though they HAD accomplished that. Instead of being realistic about expectations and giving a firm foundation. Interestingly, Asian students do much better because of their number system. 10-2, 10-3, etc. And I suspect also because of family influences, parental expectations. I tutor children who have not learned to read in traditional classroom setting. Many times it is difficult to find a time for tutoring because student has karate three nights a week, soccer practice one night and a game another, music lessons, scouts, etc. Shall we say they are a bit over programmed? There is a lot that's wrong with our educational system, but mandated programs that are then underfunded and punitive does not enhance the situation any.

I ALREADY OWN THAT STORY!!!!!!
from grassyknoll :
Hehehehehrhhrrhr. *wry grin* Sadly, she WAS the supervisor. I actually get better treatment by the unpaid 19-year-old interns when I call. Unfortunately, the 19-year-old interns are just plain stupid (which explains why this didn't get taken care of in June), instead of stupid like a fox like Miss Jumbo Curlers running the place (which explains why the entire place has always SUX0RED).

Thought you might like to take a look at this from Joan Chittister today: http://nationalcatholicreporter.org/fwis/fw091604.htm
from tariqa :
Thanks for stopping by. Oh, you might just be surprised. I'm actually very conservative, just can't go with the neocons and the "transparent" government we seem to currently have. Love a good discussion - an old Reedie.
from pandionna :
You remember McGovern's campaign? Heh! ;-)
from mrscoble :
I'm not in touch with the bonding you're talking about, but Gorb knows it quite well, I have come to understand. He bonded with the guys in his team in ways that aren't replaced by anything else. The only person he feels he can talk to, relation wise, is his father, who went to Vietnam as well. It's hard to see a man cry, for me...
from sbsneech :
yes.. she did say biceps, didn't she?
from mrscoble :
If only you knew that you were on my list of possibilities. I seem to have a soft, wet spot for older men. ;)
from grassyknoll :
LOL, you're so cute. But it's just a piece of paper to get my foot stuck in the door, nothing more. Don't worry. ;)
from candy-sorrow :
i miss you every day princess. ♥
from pandionna :
"how much the Iraqi's actually love us being there... how the MIDDLE CLASS can now afford to have running water, air conditioning, decent education for their children, good roads, electricity OUTSIDE the cities, etc..." You know what? I don't care. I care more about the Americans here who are not getting a decent education for their children, and who can't afford health care. Iraq should never have been this country's priority. Our war was with Al Qaeda. Iraq was nothing but a diversion, and an opportunity Bush had been waiting for. And I'd rather vote for a billionaire who doesn't stoop to the things Dick Cheney said than a coke-sniffing drunk billionaire like Bush. Muah.
from candy-sorrow :
that note made me laugh. you're too cool for me, princess.
from secret-sacy :
I am planning a big comeback. Get ready.
from mrscoble :
Dirty old man! heh heh
from buttwhore :
Sounds like you are having fun! Thanks for my note! Keep up the good work and I hope you have another sucessful weekend.
from mrscoble :
THIS IS YOUR LITTLE VOICE SPEAKING. QUIT HURTING YOUR FOOT, OLD MAN. SHEE-IT.
from newsoulie :
Yeah, I know. I just thought it was weird and fun. I don't get that kind of thing often. Special when she has me so close. - I think someone is spying on me, really. It hasn't been broadcast to everyone that I was following the wiccan religion and actually trying to join a coven - a no go zone, now. Oh, well, just a wait and see kinda thing. Might follow it up, might not.
from pandionna :
See, that's how it starts. I was once conservative, too. A real Reagan Republican. And then I read a book about Druids. And then I studied up on them, became fascinated by them. And now look at me, heh. Looks like you were just in the area. Northern Virginia here. The Maryland RenFaire is a Major Event in these parts. I've never been to one, but I keep trying to get the huz to go. Maybe this year my luck will change. Glad you liked the banner ad. Which one was it? God bless, gracious flies, or watery tart?
from mrscoble :
I believe I catcheth your drift. ;) Poor Gorb, I had to explain what the "rainbow chainmail" meant before getting to the end of your entry!
from candy-sorrow :
honestly. lydia & i could have DIED without you. without even getting married.
from minnapop :
No, you should NOT! Didn't you learn anything from our terrible stories?
from pyroguysr :
Hmmmmm... 18 messages... I should disappear more often!
from minnapop :
Yes. We love you muchly. And another reason we're ending this is because this is message number 18. And anything more than that would just be overkill. So now you must start at the beginning of this note streak, or you shall be very very cornfuseled for a while. But whatever you do, come back. And call or get online or e-me. Anything. Love you, Jacky. *huggles*
from candy-sorrow :
well jack, this is where we say our goodbyes for the night, for several reasons. one of them being that we're quite psychotic, but also quite lovable. so come back. soon. dont die. if you already died, un-die. i love you princess. ♥
from minnapop :
And I'm sure I've got something you can't resist...So pretend like I'm waving that in front of your face in a very convincing way...
from candy-sorrow :
*pouts* jackkkk. you have to come back. oooh. that rhymes, & made me burst out into song. hit the road jack, & dont you come back no more...except, we want you to do the exact opposite of that, okay? & i have pouty lips, no one can resist the pout. you must not resist the pout.
from minnapop :
*puts on her frightened puppy dog face to make you feel all manly and important* Are you convinced yet?
from candy-sorrow :
exactly, i mean...how can i be safe without my fearless princess standing by my side? & just think what could have happened to lydia. what if that guy had been all like, "what do you MEAN you dont know a susan?" she could have died. we need you, boyo.
from minnapop :
But it almost WASN'T happily ever after, Jack. Now don't you feel bad that you weren't there to rush in bravely? And I haven't had any near-death experiences I don't think...Oh, WAIT! Yes I did. This guy just randomly walked into my room and said he was looking for Susan. And I said I didn't know a Susan and that I was sorry I couldn't help him. But then he walked all the way in and to my 'puter and tried to mooch something off of it or something. And he was creepy. And I think he might have been dangerous. Yes, I'm sure he was. And he was in my room whilst I was here all alone. I could've DIED, Jack...So get back here and protect us.
from candy-sorrow :
right. once upon a time, i was walking by the washing machine, which was, until that time, minding its own business, as it should. but then it started vibrating a bit, & making loud noises. & the noises got louder, & it was moving around & shaking & knocking into the drier. & everything on top of the washer was falling off. & i said to myself, "goodness, i think this fucker is going to explode." but i'm a brave sort, so i took a step back & just watched it. & i was about to give it the "dont you mess with me, you fiend." look, but as soon as i'd thought it, it settled down & stopped. it went back to its business of washing clothes, & i went on my way to the living room & all was well. we lived happily ever after. the end.
from minnapop :
And don't forget about when the washer tried to eat you, Lady love. Jack must be sufficiently scared into protecting and never leaving us again...
from candy-sorrow :
can you imagine the terror of us doing the 'or else' twice? most dont survive the first. so anyway, today there was a scary bug in my room, & i really dislike bugs. & it was attacking me. so i sprayed it with hairspray, & it went spazzing & landed on my fan. i didnt want to go near it, for fear it might maim me, so i threw my shoe at it, & then it died. the end.
from minnapop :
Can confirm that it is, in fact illegal in some countries...And also 37 states. So we shant subject the innocent readers of your notes to it. Nor shall we risk being caught in one of the wrong states. But yes, yes. The mints are required. Or we shall...do the "or else" again...
from candy-sorrow :
& you dont even want to KNOW what the 'or else' really is. its so terrible we would not speak of it in the public vicinity of your notes page. i hear its illegal in some countries. oooh, & get us those vanilla after coffee mints from starbucks.
from minnapop :
My opinion (which I did NOT just steal from Sage) is the same as Sage's. Get back here or else.
from candy-sorrow :
i agree. send me money with the pictures. & chocolate. but the real point is, lydia & i..we're here. but, you are not. & i feel you should be. [this is where lydia adds her opinion.]
from minnapop :
Oh, and do get a tiara as well, Jacky. T'would be so pretty...And then, of course, we get pictures...I shall expect them in my mailbox shortly.
from candy-sorrow :
okay, we're gonna try this again...if you're a princess & you know it clap your hands. [this is where jack claps his hands like mad, for he is a princess. a pretty one, at that.]
from minnapop :
*cups her hand to her ear* I didn't hear you clapping, Jack! You owe us big time...
from candy-sorrow :
if you're silly & you know it clap your hands
from candy-sorrow :
hey princess, me & lydia were talking. & neither one of us remember you asking us if you could disappear. we are offended, but love you anyway.
from candy-sorrow :
princesssss. i moved. again.
from autumnsxrain :
*pokes*
from autumnsxrain :
you should sign on now.
from mrscoble :
Oh yes, they dictate. A LOT. I'm already doing minor maintenance to this house because I don't want to be charged for repairs when we move out. By the way, when are you going to come visit ME?!?
from autumnsxrain :
be thankful for the love you get, but certainly dont settle for less when you're incomplete.
from mrscoble :
It's not a place of your own when the YNs dictate what the street in front of your house should look like...
from mrscoble :
Of course I still read them. Especially when I need a laugh. I need this laugh because the Yard Nazis have attacked my home. Bastards!
from mrscoble :
I have two words to describe you today. Nut and case. I'm fairly certain you know the context already. Your problem? You love too much. Damn hippie.
from mrscoble :
Smart polacks. Heh. You make me laugh. Silly Jack. ;) Hell, we're near completely broke, and even can't manage to get a Sears card. Talk about miserable. I don't even have enough money to spare enough quarters to go to the laundromat!
from zalitar :
Did you have a birthday or sumfin? Sowwy. And don't worry about all that money stuff. You'll do what needs to be done, because thats the kind of guy you are. I won't say that "everything will be alright" because thats a bogus sentiment, but I will say that knowing you, you'll pull off what you need to, in order to take care of your needs. And since I'm full blooded Irish, except for that damned British half, I'll send the luck of the Irish your way.
from autumnsxrain :
you died. haha, i gotta go though. talk to you later, pyro jack.
from autumnsxrain :
*hugs* you should sign on AIM, says me.
from autumnsxrain :
oh princess, who needs family when you have me & lydia?
from mrscoble :
*smiff* My toes feel so dirty now! *bawls*
from autumnsxrain :
you keep coming back because you're lying. you love very much, but because it can hurt you at times, you wish you didnt. & i wasnt aware that i had charms, but i'm very glad to hear it, even if you're immune to them. hehe. love you, princess.
from newsoulie :
Thanks, Jack... Just gotta shake my backside and see if I can get bar work. :oD
from autumnsxrain :
*hugs* i love you much pyro jack.
from newsoulie :
Jack, I care at the moment... How well I do in college will reflect if I can get into university or not. I don't know what I want to do when I get to that stage and I probably should work that out now. But, Iknow that if I get to uni and actually succeed, it will throw everything in my family's faces because they all thought I was a drop out like the rest of them. I want this, and I need the grades to get there. Maybe a fancy title by my name might acutally mean something to someone, somewhere. At the moment, it doesn't to me. My grades do, it determines my place in University.
from jellyrose :
How hard can it be? livejournal.com/~jellyrose *duh*
from walkingxby :
ah, i notice my dear. & what a picture they paint. okay. pick me up friday, i could use a good time & some good plotting. lydia'll be thrilled. & of course, i love you.
from walkingxby :
i've never been honest about why i was breaking up with someone before. except for tonight. & the reaction was scary.
from walkingxby :
telling the truth doesnt feel good.
from pyroguysr :
People should go read Minnapop's diary too.
from minnapop :
You should be here when I am. I decided. But here I sit with my teeth in my mouth and no Jack to talk to. Humph.
from mrscoble :
That's not funny. Now I have you AND Meatball trying to give me a massive coronary. How I weep.
from newsoulie :
That's easier said than done.
from walkingxby :
haha. princesssss *points*
from walkingxby :
you're a wonderful writer.
from dangerspouse :
Hey there, Sick Pup! Thanks for stopping by my place and having the balls to admit you liked the jokes. I'd been going back and reading some of your stuff, but once I found out that you can't sleep if a breeze is blowing on you I had to stop. I'm liberal, but not THAT liberal. That's just sick. Oh, and Happy Birthday! Suuuuure you wanted to go to Hooters for the wings......
from newsoulie :
Thanks, daddy... :oP If only I could believe that myself, though.
from walkingxby :
hehe. you may not ever get to see my true angsty side, as i keep deleting everything that doesnt suit me the next day. consider yourself lucky. ♥
from walkingxby :
hahaha. alright, we'll fight for her.
from minnapop :
Yes, yes. Do fight over me. I've never been fought over before. I think it would be grand...*eats popcorn and watches*
from walkingxby :
you make me laugh, elmer.
from walkingxby :
oh god. dont read that mindlessness. haha.
from walkingxby :
haha. we'll just let her know that our intentions are good.
from walkingxby :
we could fight over her.
from walkingxby :
indeed i do. & for the record, i never really forget.
from walkingxby :
not true. i've gone three whole weeks without forgetting one. lol.
from walkingxby :
haha. i never forget a love. ♥
from walkingxby :
hahaha. nope. very much a girl.
from walkingxby :
hello. i love you.
from newsoulie :
Heya, cyber daddy... sorry I haven't been around much but I'm kinda leading a double life. I have 2 sets of parents now and the second - being my boyfriends parents - have taken me in and are taking me on holiday with them wherever they go... Going away again on Thursday. *hugs* thanks for the note. I have no idea where people have gone :o(
from zalitar :
Loverly rant
from buttwhore :
Actually, Jack. I completely agree with your political stand point. I think Kerry is an idiot. I think Bush has done the best job with what he has been handed. He didn't ask for 9/11 but he handled it very well. I don't agree with everything he has done but I do think he has done his best and I think he will do more for our country than Kerry ever would. I don't even want to think about our country being run by Kerry. Hmm okay enough of that. Politics, politics. :P Hope to see ya soon!
from secret-sacy :
You had to be cutely affectionate and tell me you missed me, didn't you? Damn you. I love you too. *butterfly kiss*
from secret-sacy :
I love you, Sneech.
from sbsneech :
Hey!!! I'm an open-minded liberal.. I hate both parties equally.
from pyroguysr :
*chuckles* It was a general rant concerning the liberal mindset I run into on a daily basis as well as watching on TV... and why is it the only friendly liberals that give me discourse on this don't even LIVE in this country? *hugs em both* *snickers* Jelly, at least he GRADUATED and didn't drop out of *Divinity School* from smoking too much dope
from jellyrose :
Heh. Ahhhhhhhhhh.. it's *almost* the same thing as when we found out that Georgie only attended half of his classes at university and never got a higher grade than a "C"? Or when we discovered he just didn't turn up for his millitary service? What's so incredibly sad about the US system is that people are led to believe that the elections should be won by the candidate who has the most dirty scandals to tell about the other candidate... and Americans still wonder why they're being viewed as retarded? [no offense intended] Can't you all just focus on the core business and don't listen to all the mud throwing propaganda coming from both sides (republicans AND democrats)?!?!
from secret-sacy :
Not ONE person on your diaryland list writes long hate speeches about George Bush. In fact, the only political material I read from our diaryland group consists of opinionated and bombastic republican speeches, the main point of them usually being to simply moan about liberals. So .... who are you talking to?
from sbsneech :
*huggly hugging huggles* I miss you!
from minnapop :
Wonnerful, wonnerful poems 'n things. Miss you...and stuff...Wow, really not in a creative mood at all. Blah.
from privatebitch :
Sex? HAH! As soon as you become a millionaire. ;)
from privatebitch :
Hi sexy. Is it still killing you that you haven't figured me out yet? Don't worry, you never will ;)
from newsoulie :
Yeah, public forum... I could do with a good chat with daddy... Though... (no, not in that way - just need a long talk)
from newsoulie :
I always learn from my mistakes. Don't let a guy do anything to you if he's wearing a wedding ring or if he looks older than 24 because it ususally ends up bad. *nods and hugs you back*
from mrscoble :
Are you kidding? We drink Gatorade like crazy around here. Just don't do like the other Florida college, and call it Seminole Fluid.
from newsoulie :
lol are you sure you want to read my diary...? Man, I've messed up!
from newsoulie :
Okay, mr... This traveling stops you from sending your imagination my way... Written more stuff... Will send if you ask nicely! *smile* miss you, y'know! *hugs*
from minnapop :
What kind of a note was that, meanie? *poke* My diary is public. Anyone who wants to read it can...I just have few online friends. *humph*
from minnapop :
Do you know that you are quite possibly THE hardest person to get ahold of right now? At least in my life. Well, Scott might have you beat, but he's going to be HERE for two weeks, so he still wins. E-me...And hurry home! *huggles all over the place*
from sbsneech :
*long, tight huggles* I miss you.. hell, I miss everyone... plus, It just seems like you need a huggle.
from minnapop :
Are you still there? You just left me in the room. *humph*
from privatebitch :
Private Bitch is my name, tormenting old men is my game. The poorer and dirtier the better....
from privatebitch :
I'd send you my password, but I'm enjoying intriguing you far too much. *grin*
