from sassymcgee :
Thanks for adding me! Hopefully you keep enjoying reading my thought process and true stories lol. :D
from lobo21 :
Hi. I'm back, less randomly than last time. Thank you for for your note. Ah the "Poor Me's", I get them from time to time too. Surely everyone with some dissatisfaction in their lives must. Some maybe have better reasons than others. lol Similar 40 year old hand me down furniture story here, vacations are usually stay-at-homes, and though I, being of oppossite persuation, am sure my lack of men's interests match your shopping and manicure needs. :) Wishing you get more of what your missing, like a bathroom reno! Take care.
from lobo21 :
Hi. Found you by random and was very glad I did. I hope you don't mind visitors once in a while, and just so you know I did click your link and voted. Hope you sneak into third or higher. Take care.
from fuck--that :
I absolutely love your outlook! And, I have to say, it's comforting to know that someone out there made it work beyond the ideals! I hope it lasts forever, thank you so much for taking the time to write. Your words were a great help!
from take-two :
[03/05/09] Regarding FB, can I have your personal email address?
from mykindoflove :
Hey--I found you through a comment on Mia's latest post. When I saw the context of your entries and the Cute Boy reference, I just had to add you. :) Look forward to reading your story! :)
from teranika :
I think that we must have the worst clawfoot on the planet - because yours is the third note expressing love for the creatures. Mine must be defective. But yeah, now that THAT's out of the way..shall we call each other and arrange to wear the same clothing, Bestie?? ;-)
from madbeautiful :
You can't just leave us hanging like that. That is a good down to earth real checklist, you could break up some families with that.
from take-two :
[09/10/07] - Silly... how can one person update better than another person? We are all on our personal adventures. I actually long for the days when my entries will be about my husband/significant other and rug rats. I'm so jealous of you. Anyway, have a happy Monday and an exellent week.
from katiedoyle :
i don't enjoy the beer, so it would have to be wine...or margaritas. :) i love me the margaritas. :)
from katiedoyle :
hee; you funny. :)
from pink-circle :
*The Circle of the Phoenix* Hi, I'm Phoenix, and I'd like to personally invite you to join The Circle; a writers' and artists' group for diaryland members. It's a public journal, so that anyone can post to it, but members have profiles on the site, as well as critiques, and once promoted to Apprentice have buttons to show off their achievements on their site. I hope you don't take this as spam, you can just delete this message if you're not interested, but if you are, please visit our welcome page: http://pink-circle.diaryland.com/welcome3.html -- Thanks for your time -- Atara Phoenix
from take-two :
[05/25/07] Yikes! Such high praise from such a great mind. And no worries... a new job = probation and I should be 'grounded' for at least six months. But... my new job is only THREE miles from Los Angeles International Airport...
from cdnfoxychick :
Omg! I know (re:your comment on my last post)!! The worst thing is the time that I've actually spent **thinking** about how it would all go down. I mean, I've got it all planned out and everything.
from bookafly :
Hi reader! Kathy here at dland started the group and we've just started 'walking' her diary is called kitchenlogic. Just leave her a comment or note telling her that you'd like to join the walking tour and I'm sure she'll add you! Now, as for me doing your treadmill time.... I think I'll have to get back to you on that one... :) Becky
from teranika :
oops, accidentally hit the wrong button. Maybe we aren't disconnected - maybe everyone feels this way a little bit and we are the ones who are just brave enough to admit it? (yes! let's flatter ourselves!) Or, perhaps because we hide it, we aren't really callous inhuman apes, but rather we just have a healthy skepticism...but it doesn't mean that we can't be caring individuals, too. (or so I hope I hope..)
from teranika :
I hesitated in writing that because face it, these blogs aren't really private...But then again, I thought I might hear from people like you -
from alwaysange :
Hi, just a note to let you know I have locked up (most likely temporarily) due to some stalker issues. If you want the password, please email me at always(dot)ange(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks
from bookafly :
Just wondering if you saw 'The Fifth Estate' last night - it was all about Steven Truscott and it was really well done. I remember reading a book about the Truscott case in high school and being amazed by the apparent miscarriage of justice and was intrigued by the case from then on. I can't believe you actually met the man - that must have been fascinating...
from take-two :
01/06/07 - Congratulations! I love WW! I am doing it again, myself. And LOTF always freaked me out. If you keep at it, you'll eventually get into it, but it is still weird.
from cdnfoxychick :
Darn. Too bad the formatting for that limerick didn't go through. *sigh* oh my, am I sad for having even found that to begin with?
from cdnfoxychick :
a lot by Damian Hey (Damian Hey) There's a lot that is writing a lot "alot". But a proper construction "alot" is not. Please shun the persistent, The wrongly insistent, Who choose to spell a lot "alot" a lot!
from cdnfoxychick :
Yes, it is "alot". It should actually be spelled as two seperate words "a lot". It was reamed into me enough in college English to never forget.
from cdnfoxychick :
LoL glad you got the "typos" fixed. There still is one, technically speaking, in #6. Which was the only one that I noticed. Tee hee... I think I'm just trying to drive you mad now. Sorry =)
from alwaysange :
Yay! I love the fact that you now have a 100 Things entry. I feel like I know you so much better than before and we have a lot more in common than I realized!
from msafire :
Thanks for "butting in" on my site a while back! I apprechiated it actually as it made me feel better at the time. I came to your site a few times and read your bio first then had to follow links... I am after all ADHD girl...Uncle Bob gets me every time I come across that site Tonight I actually remembered to go back and read your site too! Congrats on you weight loss. For any other readers who wondered as asked by someone What is NA NO MO, it's National Novel Writing Month
from katiedoyle :
i don't know why your mail would bounce back; that's odd. we've been having some router and pacbell trouble, so maybe that was it. please try again? (also, i need your email addy; i have to hook up the laptop and grab it)
from jammybastard :
Gimme an email addy, I'll send the info along.
from bookafly :
Hiya! I added you as a Nano buddy...hope that's ok! Good Luck!
from fan4 :
What does "NaNoWriMo" mean?
from katiedoyle :
dude; high fidelity is my favorite cusack movie. i don't actually like say anything, because ione skye makes me crazy. she's a horrendous "actress". it does have great lines, though, and i realize it's the epitome of john cusack movies for most people, but high fidelity is lloyd dobler all grown up, so i frankly think *it* is the epitome of john cusack films. and grosse pointe blank, which rules. :) I also really like the sure thing, which is really underated. he's also really good in 8 Men Out, but that's a tragic movie. And I love him in Serendipity, too, but it bugs the absolute fuck out of me that they're both in relationships. It could have been a great movie without all the pseudo-cheating. I don't find cheating romantic. I just think by the end of the movie, neither of them needed to be involved with other people. :( My comment was about how the UN has no power because men with sticks won't give power to men without sticks, and the UN was totally designed without sticks, and the guys who have sticks tend to be bullies who just created the UN so they could have an air of decency and compassion. only, you know, wordier.
from katiedoyle :
haloscan ate my comment. stupid haloscan.
from take-two :
Right! I am torn between hating Anthony for letting me down, and feeling sorry for him. If you ever go back in my archives you'll see his life has not been kind to him - and he just doesn't have the strength to pull himself out of his circumstances. I still hate him for not loving me, though. Or not loving himself. Anyway, thanks for reading - though I do write for myself, it is nice to know that others might be interested as well. Cross your fingers for me!
from katiedoyle :
i forgot to say i'd empty the clip into him, too. i am all about the shooting first, saying stop later.
from katiedoyle :
i used to get some skeezy googles. now all i get is katie doyle googles. :( stupid slutty reality tv bimbo.
from katiedoyle :
y'know, if i hadn't stayed in france til nov. 19, i'd LOVE to fly to detroit and go see springfield with you. coz you know that i am jessie's girl, and love is all right tonight. ;)
from lourspete :
hi, joe! i'm glad you had a happy birthday! :) katie made the sign for me, because my handwriting isn't very neat, and i wanted it to look nice. but i told her what to write and how i wanted her to make the letters. elle wanted to help. i'm sorry we didn't have any colored pens, but i'm glad you liked it. :) your pal, pete
from take-two :
10/13/06 - Thanks so much for the kind note about my weight loss! Just stay the course and I'm sure your weight will melt away!
from augustdreams :
I discovered you through your banner and I love your writing! Very good stuff. I'll be back for more. :)
from take-two :
Do you have a Yahoo account? If so you a can add a diet tracker to your My Page. You can enter a start weight and an end date and it will give you a graph. Each time you weigh in it will show your progress AND tell you the percentage of weight you have lost to date. Good luck. And shame on you for never having had a pedicure. I get them every two weeks. I (as do you) deserve it!!!
from bookafly :
Thanks for your help! My birthday is next Wednesday, so my present to myself will be a gold membership! Again thanks, and can I tell you how much that teacher pissed me off too - own up to your actions bitch!
from bookafly :
Hi reader, I notice you have a comments section now. That's something you get with super isn't it? Just wondering if you upgraded and if you're glad you did. Still trying to decide myself. Thanks! Fly
from katiedoyle :
hate. not to strong a word. i expect to hear all about it. :)
from junkmel1 :
Hello! Found you through a banner, and I've now read all your old entries. Happy 40th! Hope the rough patch with your husband was resolved in time for you to enjoy it.
from katiedoyle :
jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous jealous
from zuzus-petals :
There's a great book called, "We wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families" about the whole Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. Well worth the read.
from vibinghigh :
I just found your diary through your banner and I loved your movie entry. The Breakfast Club is probably my all-time favorite movie. I quote it pretty regularly too. I watch it at least once a year, and . . gosh, I think it's time again. Maybe this weekend. Looking forward to reading more of your entries!
from randomrabbit :
Slightly disappointed Sister Act 2 wasn't on your list but each to their own I suppose. I very much enjoyed your entries. Though I have only read 2 of them since my boss is skulking about the place looking menacing, but I did like them and I shall read the rest when he buggers off.
from bookafly :
Hi, thanks for checking in! I have to say that I find your diary very entertaining and I'm glad I added you as a fave:) As for the gold/supergold - I had a couple people email and say that supergold was great because of the comments page, but for what I'm looking for, gold is probably good. I'm glad that you said you didn't know html either - that's been the biggest thing holding me back - but I've decided I'll take the plunge in the next few weeks - gold here I come!!! Thanks for your help!
from alicewonders :
I found you via a banner. Love your style and wit. Thanks for sharing. :)
from flybynyght :
Hi! This is just an encouraging note to say that you need to fall off of your exercise regiment every once in a while so that you can remember just how good it feels and how much it does for you! You can do it! And as a sidenote, I've had to change my diary because of an archive issue, so any further notes I leave, or if you want to check out my diary, it will be under the name 'bookafly' Hopefully the weekend's weather is better than today's!
from katiedoyle :
"I was so screwed that somewhere the pain fairy was reclining in a bed, half-covered in a sheet smoking the post-screwing cigarette." >>> I think I just woke the neighbors with the laughing. Holy crap, that was funny. Not the pain part, but the mental image comment. Sorry your tooth hurt and glad it's better, because man, I *never* want to know pain like that. How did it happen? I haven't read in a few days. Feelin' sorry for myself because I have to face the pain of my dysfunctional relationship, and it sucks. But I will comment more tomorrow. Glad the toothache has stopped. xo, kd
from calm-panic :
Love It. I've only read a couple entries, but I am gonna stick around and see what else you come out with...hope the BBQ thing goes well!
from raen :
Clicked the banner. Like your journal. Think I'll hang around for a bit. :) Oh, I recommend LibraryThing.com. Pretty cool place for book lovers. Later.
from katiedoyle :
aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
from take-two :
8/17/06 - Thanks for the add! Just wanted you to know that I will be checking in with you as well. Hope your tooth feels better!
from zuzus-petals :
I don't think the break in, the sexual molestation or the beating were "accidental." I think he was trying to say, "I broke into their house, I beat her, I raped her, I strangled her, but I didn't mean to hurt her." He was hoping to keep her alive, you know, so he could do it again. The sick perv. - Zu
from katiedoyle :
i have a really difficult time being around drunk people, so i think i'd probably hate the guy too. solidarity!!! ;)
from katiedoyle :
"Maybe I'll even get a tattoo." Whoa, now, Nelly. That's crazy talk.
from katiedoyle :
oh. *scanned* images. how...1990's of you. ;p
from katiedoyle :
that's just mean, with the typin' out of the kc lyrics and the snarky friendship comments. you're just lucky YOU like rick springfield. ;)
from katiedoyle :
gah. it ate the note, so now you think i'm nuts. i think what i said was thanks for the links love and that if you tell me what program you use, i can help you with the sepia thing, though i think both photoshop and fireworks have sepia buttons. i took that one with the camera that way, though. also, the not telling you you lost weight i think is a guy thing, and yes, it's annoying. i'm sure you have lost weight, and i am jealous, because i have climbed thousands of stairs and haven't lost more than about 5 lbs, which sucks, so i am jealous, but supportively jealous. go, you! (and now you know what the deal was with the exc. point. and also i should have spelled diss with 2 s's. i'm a spaz.) kd
from katiedoyle :
stupid laptop keyboard. there was an "!" at the end of that go, you. ::sigh::
from katiedoyle :
and that is hilarious about that stats and googles! :)
from katiedoyle :
go ahead and dis my embarrassing music; go ahead. there's not a disco song on that whole list, and as a rule, i hate anything with the words boogie, bootie, or disco in the title, and now that i think about it, i need to add the word fever to that list. so i *will* dis your kc and the sunshine band, and what're you gonna do about it, huh?! ;)
from flybynyght :
Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I have indeed joined you! Up until today I've just been getting a handle on eating better and portion sizes. After reducing your portions for a while, it's surprising how that amount ends up being satisfying! As for exercising, I've been out in the garden and sweating my ass off, but the treadmill and I haven't exactly been friends. But I have an excuse. I don't have central air and I think I would have shorted the thing out with the sweat that would be dripping off me for the past few weeks! But now the heat wave is done and I'm back in business! Great to hear that you're feelin smaller!
from katiedoyle :
(Jinxed again!!!) LOL!
from katiedoyle :
kc & the sunshine band??? ::sigh:: we so can not be friends.
from katiedoyle :
i will totally do the healthy thing with both of you. :) omg, i totally hate the people who have bought your house. they're lucky they didn't buy a house from me, because i would have gotten all hostile on their asses by now. dude.
from flybynyght :
OK, I just had a "SHUT UP!" moment. I was reading your first entry and I was surprised to see that you're Canadian - so am I! Then I looked at your info. You're from Windsor - So am I! Small world I must say...
from flybynyght :
Hey reader, just clicked on your banner and you know what, I think I'm going to do the healthy thing with you. I was pretty good a couple months ago - until the heat came. Now I'm saying "screw you" heat and I'm going to loose this excess weight if it's the last thing I do. I'm in a wedding in 1 year and my objective is to look fabulous! I really like your writing style, gonna be a geek and check out your archives...
from katiedoyle :
i think we are a lot alike, what with the eating, dieting, vicious cycle, letting other people's casual comments make us stop what we like. only you are the funny one. that sucks. *I* want to be the funny one. ::sigh:: i left my only diet coke in the freezer, and it froze. you know that part in star trek ii, the wrath of khan, where kirk's son gets killed and he cries out khaaaan!? yeah. only it doesn't work so well with coooooke! ::sigh::
from katiedoyle :
wow, i totally love the minimalist thing you've done with the place. :) i really need to learn minimalism. i admire it in others but somehow can't seem to do it for myself. maybe that's a reflection of my mind. hmmm... i admire your attitude about turning 40. i hope that whole new mindset thing works out for ya. i'm still trying to get past feeling 25, frankly. i'll let you in on a horrible little secret, because it belies my age and that i am not the perpetual 27 or 28 year old i like to think of myself as. 31 was the hardest birthday so far. 30 wasn't so bad, because 30 is on the cusp. but 31, you are IN your 30s. you are supposed to be an adult, with adult things and adult accomplishments, and i was still trying to figure my shit out (still am), so 31 was a truly horrendous birthday. 40 pales by comparison. by the time 40 rolls around, you're already an adult. you've had time to get used to the idea. i didn't have quite the reaction to the actual birthday as i did the realization it was actually going to happen, which i greeted with an utterly meg ryan, when harry met sally moment. seriously. i cam home from my 35th birthday party, looked in the mirror and congratulated myself with "i don't look myh age AT ALL; i won't look it when i'm 40, either." and then it hit me: i was actually going to BE 40 someday. until that moment, 40 was a number that just did not apply to me. i still thought about 40 the way i thought about it when i was 10, when it was so impossibly far away in the future that i would never reach it. and then suddenly there it was, looming on the horizon. so when it finally showed up, it was really sort of anticlimactic. 45 might suck, though. i guess we'll see. luckily, i have 2.5 years more to go before i hit it. but i have to say, i'm not taking to the 40s at all. maybe 50 will be better... kd
from katiedoyle :
and thank you :)
from katiedoyle :
lol; you're funny. and a nut. :) and also, DO NOT LET THE PEOPLE IN EARLY, TO DO *ANYTHING*. A) it's rude they're pressing, and I have a feeling they know this and that they can screw you over. B), and actually the more important thing, you screw yourself out of legal rights. DO NOT LET THEM IN.
from katiedoyle :
huh; i have that same inner clock. :) and i'm going to have to check out that time traveller book. i am intrigued. :) have a great weekend. :) kd
