from l-empress :
Just thought I'd mention, pierogies are not exactly "Yankee food". Rather, they are an example of the phenomenon that people in the Northeast are more adventurous eaters than the rest of the country. Really. Good to see you here.
from musikoid :
Extremely nice diary. It's also refreshing to see people on DiaryLand who are in my relative age group. And I like your style. I'm going to have to read you again when I'm more focused, but I just want to say that I've probably "traumatized" my own daughter a couple times just as inadvertently, although of course your usage of the word was hyperbole. And I really *do* need therapy. Thank for a good read!
from fan4 :
Are you okay?

I no longer have a cough or nose trouble, but I still have nightsweats. I wish they'd go away already.

Sounds as if you like your job. It would be nice if one day, I could survive resumes and coverletters and interviews, and land myself some job that I'll enjoy doing.
from kellbelle :
Welcome back Kotter!! I have missed you!! I beat you to the big four-oh-my-gawd. It was fun because people I've known for a long time couldn't believe I was 40! LOL

WHERE ARE UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU SALLY DO?
from bluelucy :
Certainly not! I'll admit, I'm interested to see what the last episodes are like, though, and I suppose seeing as how the show has to end at some point, this is a pretty good time for that all things considered. Anyway, even when there are no more new episodes, at least there will still be reruns, I can always watch my DVDs, and of course there are the movies to look forward to.
from forty-plus :
In case you check this I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year!
from bettyalready :
where the hell did you GO????
from bluelucy :
You know, I was thinking that if I wanted to have where I played an instrument with my song, I could simply get some recording equipment, play the accompaniment on my guitar, then put the singing in later. Although most of my songs don't really work for just a guitar, so I'd probably go ahead and hire band if I was going all out and renting or buying recording equipment anyway. I really don't see that I'll ever get around to that, though, to be honest, but certainly, I can see just recording the songs a cappella. I'd never forget the melodies of my songs, of course, but it would be cool for others to hear how they go.
from bluelucy :
Thanks you for the compliment on my songs. What would really be nice is if I could perform the songs all on my own. I can sing and play the guitar well, the only problem is that I have a problem with coordination where I can't play an instrument and sing at the same time. I'm thinking about simply recording the songs a cappella so I at least have them down with the basic melody, then one day perhaps I'll hire a band or something to back me up.

I don't think there's anything wrong with keeping old stickers. I'm a sticker collector (among other things), and have a combination of old and new stickers in my collection.

Tennessee huh??? I've been there, way better than Oklahoma, J.K Rowling all the way!! :)

I call myself a Christian, yet don't act like one. That's not what I'd call God giving me breathing room. It's me walking away from HIM.

Thanks for adding my diary to your favorites list.

from chsturtle :
He he, well I don't have a pouch in my stomache, and I'm not very strong, so I don't think I'm a Jaffa. However, it will take a few weeks to get my results and one never knows what they'll find ;) Also, thanks for the well wishes for my mom. She's in rehab now and doing as well as can be expected, though I hope she can come home soon.
from captainron :
Have a great day right back. I hope the house tending elfs show up tonight while you're asleep and both clean and allpy aloe...

re: your comment - apparently, the heat/sunstroke caused an enlargement of the heart and she was ill for several months before she died. Of course, this was in 1929, so medicine wasn't what it is today.
from llannalee :
*lol* I'm blushing. Michael looked at me strangely when he realized thta I had blogged about my cell's stash-spot. I'm still cracking up about your response. And, you know, a taser would be such a good investment. I could always use it to threaten B&Z's dates when they're old enough for that. ;)

Hey, thanks for the note, and yeah, I would TOTALLY love to publish my essays, stories, novels, songs, poetry... anything... if only I could find an agent or editor or SOMEBODY in the publishing world that agrees with you.

Squeeee! I just got the present! Thank you so much! I didn't know they exsisted, either! oh, and it's brand new! I can't wait to get it dirty! So many exclamation points, but I don't care!!!!! Thanks, Sally, you are better to me than you are to your own kids. I hope this is to the right person. I'm sure you are the only Sally i know. Dang, wouldn't that be embarrassing. Oh. Well, it's embarrassing enough all ready. I better let it go. (((HUGS))) JJ

from trinityboy :
I WAS a lovely Day, and my name was Doris.
from smedindy :
Hey, thanks for the add! Much obliged!
from biodtl :
Yeah - that's one of our haunts. My husband has family in Asheville and we usually combine a vist with a vacation (I say "combine" because visiting the in-laws is NOT a vacation, even in the most lovely surroundings). I don't know when we'll make it that way next, since we have Disney in the fall, and that has pretty much put a kibpsh on any travel that doesn't involve the words "expense account". But when we finally get down that way again, I would love to meet up.

from groovyguru :
The dirty deed you requested . . . it is done. Tonight, I submitted the post to the OSU student newspaper, "The Daily Barometer." I received a note saying it was being "reviewed for content." With that said, I don't know what the line in Vegas would be on our chances to get it in print. It is fun trying though! If all else fails, I will submit it to each of the Corvallis, Oregon newspapers . . . one . . . at . . . a . . . time.
from groovyguru :
I have it I HAVE IT!!!! I am sending it to the campus newspaper. I will do it tonight. MAYBE even send it to the city rag where the campus is.

oh thank you so much! I had a great day. Probably because I had no expectations. I worked for 13+ hours, so I was worn out. How was your valentines?
from captainron :
Catching that stuff early enough almost always restuts in no long term problems. It's the folks who ignore it who have issues. Hmm, kind of like life.... Hang in there....
from sumi37 :
Oh Sally - it'll be ok. I went through the same thing with my mom last year. She had a melanoma on her sweet, beautiful face. And she's still beautiful. And I just know your mom will be ok. I've got all the fingers and toes and cat paws crossed for you!
from quietguy :
Thank you for your messages. I always appreciate them. :-)
from captainron :
It's strictly a cyber stalker Sally... Someone with way too much time on her hands apparently.... I think the message was received though so hopefully she's done with me.
from aknockout :
I'm alright. I'm not worried about the kid they are talking about, the state of my love life or them so much. Just how lame is this guy, who is like one of my closest friends, and how lame is someone to say thats what his problem is.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. Of course, some people replace the thees and thous and amongsts with modern translations...but it's so nice in the Elizabethan. The full Angelus... V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary. R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit. V. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. R. Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord. R. Be it done unto me according to thy word. Hail Mary, etc. V. And the Word was made Flesh. R. And dwelt among us. Hail Mary, etc. V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. LET US PRAY We beseeth Thee, O God, pour forth thy grace into our hearts, that as we have known the incarnation of thy Son, Jesus Christ, by the message of an angel, so by his cross and passion we may be brought to the glory of his resurrection. Through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

You're not any where near Rhode Island right? I have a car, it is my moms. Runs good, decent tires, needs a battery. Needs cleaning very badly, but that is the only thing wrong with it.....
from aknockout :
YEA! I made one persons valentines a wee bit better! I'm good for something. ;-)
from captainron :
Unfortunately the capes in the wash and even if it wasn't, there is no fixing this one. This stuff has to be in the stores Monday. It is for a big Valentines Day promotion that has already been advertised. The parts have been shipped and are at their distribution center, and the over 40% are falling apart because of bad glue bonds from a problem we already thought we had fixed. Our Lady of adhesive fixes, pray for us....

I'm trying to get back in the swing of things, but just wanted to drop a line to say thanks for the bottle advice! I would hump Dr. Brown's leg like a dog in heat as a big ol' thank you for those wonderful bottles that cut down on baby gas! Wooohoooo for the bottles!
from alicewonders :
Do you use this *notes* thingie? I didn't want to leave an un-entry-related *comment* and gmail is being pissy with me tonight. I wanted you to know that, in spite of my lameness with regard to expressing my gratitude, I *was* very excited to receive my beachy-love. I have something from my trip for you... sitting right on my coffee table... in fact, I can see it from where I'm sitting. Unfortunately, it has neither hands to address an envelope, nor legs to walk itself to the mailbox. It'll happen eventually... lets just pretend that the element of surprise will make it more fun and exciting. 'kay? :)

He really DOES look good, doesn't he? I think it's because he put a little much-needed weight on. That, and his boobs have grown!

from aknockout :
Yeah, sorta. We broke out my computer from college. Its only 7 years old. Its clunky, loud and slow. But, at lest I can check my e mail, right? Its not so bad, not nearly as bad as my additude.
from biodtl :
Yes, please share. I have all the old albums, but no player. Remember the one that opened up and had his baby pictures inside? Loved that. I also had his baby face on two of my birthday cakes. When I saw him in concert, he opened up with Hey Deanie, and there was this big white paper circle, with his shadow from behind and then he broke through it singing. Was that the same concert?
from biodtl :
My dad took me to see him - he suprised me by telling me that we were going to a hockey game, and as we were heading in, I was thinking that I didn't know so many girls liked hockey. Did you have the clothes? They had an outfit in pink, yellow, green or blue, with his face on the baby t-shirt, on the leg of the bell-bottoms and on the back of the satin jacket. It was hot. I had blue.
from bindyree :
Happy New Year! I'm glad you're on my Buddy List. ♥
from bonnylisbon :
Hey! I sent a package ages ago with like, silly stuff for your kids and a Cramps t-shirt and other weird things! It was a while after I got your package, but I sent it forever long ago. I got your Christmas card two days ago- thank you so much! You're so kind and considerate, I hope you had a great Christmas. And of course, have a great New Year- party like you've never partied before! Party like only an amazing mother and wife can party!
from ramble-on :
I had to lock up my diary, not sure if you got the password or not. Drop me a note with your e mail if you want me to send it to you. I promise the note will be deleted as soon as possible!

Merry Christmas to you!! I haven't been around for ages. How are the kids? The husband? Did you EVER get my package?
from littlelloyd :
RE:Fallen off the face of the earth and never coming back.... Thinking about it. It's been busy, turbulent, and whatnot. Just raising myself to checking in occasionally for now.
from quietguy :
Thank you so very much for your comment. Yes, they did appreciate me and was sad when I left. So was I, but there was no choice to be made. If I wanted to move on I had to leave. That was the shame of it all. Take care and Merry Christmas :-) Q.G.
from aknockout :
you'd be amazed at how good it looked. I think I should have used some powder to seal it a little better. but you know it made a perfect line. I wish I could afford to go into the cosmetics industry. I could revolutionize the whole thing. I mean, we use markers all the time for straight lines, why not face markers? I used blue sharpie yesteray, today, I will use black and let you know how it goes.
from chaosbean :
I have a new diary. you can e mail me at Chaosbean @ gmail . com and I'll send you the link, if you want it. I just got tired of reading horrible lies about myself and the people who read my brother sending me hatemail. So, I left. But, I'm still arround. So let me know.
from llannalee :
Merry Christmas back at you! I totally agree with the fact that it's insane to cater to whiney people who hate life and wonderful things (like Christmas). They're just sad. Pitifully sad. (We *could* enlist the Spanish Inquisition, though. I'd be amused.)<p>Michael found a funny joke that Washington D.C. wasn't going to have a creche due to the fact that there were no virgins to be found in our nation's capital. But there were plenty of ... um... *donkeys* to fill the room at the manger scene. :P Thought you might appreciate it.<p> Still, I proudly wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the sweet note, she does have very fuzzy hair, I love to hold her on my sholder and rub my nose back and forth over the top of her head. Mmmmm.....:)

hope you feel better soon :)
from chaosbean :
Thanks for all the positive perspectives and hopes. I'm trying to keep my chin up about it all. My chin feels the effect of gravity well before anything else. Can't you get your kids into goood music. You would be so rockin if the wee ones were into the clash. The Clash are way better for the self esteem then that pop tripe. ;-) Hahaha. I don't want to be a mom even more now, I'll have to listen to those WEE Sing CDs. WORST. TORTURE. EVER.

from ramble-on :
I normally use one cup of hot water to one cup of alcohol if using the small box of jello. If using the big box, two cups of hot water to two cups of alcohol. If you want them to be a little bit harder (which I don't, I hate chewing jello) use a packet or two of Knox depending on how hard you want it to set and how much jello you are actually fixing. Boyfriend likes using the Knox. Not only does it set a little faster, you can turn the bowl upside down and that stuff will stay. NOt that turning the bowl upside down is a thing we do around here. I normally use coconut rum, because that seems to go well with black cherry, strawberry, raspberry, and a couple of other flavors. Check this page out too....http://ramble-on.diaryland.com/jelloshots.html IF at all possible, I will suggest you buy small sample cups with lids. That way they don't sit open in your fridge and they will stay good longer. Have toothpicks for use too. WOOO don't I just sound like the party animal? Several years of attending my buddy's Halloween party has helped me with this.

But I can tell you that The TIck is godlike and can surely trump any clown in any wall anywhere. My husband and his roommate in grad school used to have Tick quotes on their answering machine. I can still quote them verbatim. But I wonder where you got the bandaids....? Glad you're back!

from chaosbean :
I washed it, blow dryed it, straighten it, and curled the ends uder last night before I melted down online about how much it sucked. However, after working all day, i have this to say. It looks the same now coming home from work as it did when I went to work which would have been a good thing, if I liked the way it looked. i got new batterys for my camera so in a few moments there will be new pics up. ?I really hate it. The layers are cut so that I have two little puppy dog ear looking flap things.
from impetuousme :
You are most welcome for the add. I've been enjoying your words for a couple of weeks now. Great stuff. And thanks for the nice stuff you said about MINE. And I agree with everything you wrote about MJ. And, I'm pretty sure if I ever said what you-now-who said at your house, to your daughter, about MY wife. I'd be waiting in vain for her to come home this evening. So, cheers to you in your restraint. And thanks for posting. Sam

Thanks so much for the tips, I am going to try them out. I'm not so much against the meds as that I want to try everything else that can be done first. I want to try all these other methods of controling ADD before I resort to putting her on drugs. If she needs it, then I guess she needs it. Thank you so much for the advice and support. I'm feeling pretty alone out here while dealing with it all, so thanks so much.
from ramble-on :
Hmmmm....I can't respond to your comments thing because I have pop up blocker. ~sigh~ Anyway, how did you get so lucky to have your daughter sleep that long? Boyfriend's Youngest used to get up at the ass crack of dawn every single stinking day. IF that child EVER slept past 9 we were lucky. Boyfriend and I are bears when it comes to sleeping. We can go to bed at 9 and and go into hibernation until noon or 1. So when she would get up ~knock knock knock~ "Um. Dad? Um......~long pause~" SPIT IT OUT CHILD! "Um, I was wondering ~longer pause~" OH FOR PETE'S SAKE..."UM, I was wondering if I could have a/an (insert item here) to drink/eat." That's it? It took you eight minutes to ask for (random item here)? This would generally go on for hours and hours until we would crawl out of bed. Most often I would get so tired of it I would get up to get in the shower. IF he decided to join me, then she would begin knocking on the bathroom door. She never could wait ten minutes until we finished our shower.

"Le Tango de Roxanne” from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack is my favorite favorite FAVORITE from that movie. I bought the soundtrack just so I could listen to that song a bazillion times. Frankly, I ALMOST like it better than the original. But then, I am partial tango music because of the passion it holds.

I went back and started reading your entries from the beginning, but am doing a poor job of getting caught up. In just three weeks, my time will be my own again... I'm sure I'll make MUCH more efficient use of it then. Ha. For now, I'm going to be happy with staying on top of new posts. Anyway, I, too, am struck by how much we have in common every time I read something you've written. We really will have to find time for some *real* communication... I'm pretty sure I still know how to write e-mails for something other than business purposes. :) xo ~Alice

Gold Membership? YES!!! What do you mean get rid of Johnny Depp? That's, uh, *swallow, swallow, gulp* that's my husband. *Nervous laugh* Really. Wait until you see my picture. I'll bet you'll be telling me that I'm not really Carman Electra.
from irisheyes70 :
Happy early anniversary! We'll be an old married couple of 14 years in August. I'll pray for no rain Memorial Day just for you! *hugs*
from funnypoops :
So much to comment about! I'll have to pick just one. Happy Anniversary! Mr. Poops and I are barelling along to "old" 15 and hearing you speak of your marriage sends my happy sensors off. Okay...two things...why do YOU get a mother in law you like?! *wink*
from amomsmusings :
Marital bliss; it truly is a blessing. Happy Anniversary (in advance) and enjoy the show!
from forty-plus :
Thank you.
from amomsmusings :
Kudos to Daughter---Jull*ard, here she comes!
from ramble-on :
Sorry, Ninth Gate's ending sucked....um...big hairy things. I felt like I was watching an episode of Scooby Doo or something. At the end of it I was going "WTF?" and "where the hell did that come from?"
from amomsmusings :
Thanks for the warning, I was just about ready to go see HGTTG so you just saved me some $. The last movie I went to see was Kung Fu Hustle which I found surprisingly hilarious.
from hamlette2002 :
I really enjoyed Hitchhiker's, but perhaps it's just because I filled in the missing parts in my head. I loved the casting. I thought they did great with Zaphod, Ford, and Arthur, although they might have done better with Trillian by casting Whatshername Freakychick from The Craft.
from funnypoops :
Ah what a let down :( I was hoping to hear something good about HGTTG from someone who's opinion I appreciate. My husband LOVES the books and is in a tizzy to watch the movie. I've seen a lot of the movies on your list, with Clockwork Orange being my favorite of them. I'll suggest Trainspotting to go up there too. Sick, nasty, full of effed up things, but a total trip and quite a mind blowing movie overall.
from bettyalready :
I have seen none of those WTF? movies. I'm interested in the Korean one though.
from ramble-on :
Yes, I was merely an extra though. I KNOW where I am at...and have to convince everyone else of this since my face can't be seen. There was a show that was on the Discovery channel (I think...maybe it was Nickelodeon) and they had a making of show about Starship Troopers. IN this show, there is footage of my beautimus face. Sadly, that tape was recorded over. I could cry. SO the only proof that I have of me being in it are my old paycheck stubs, a couple of t-shirts and a few friends that were with me. It was the hardest work I had EVER done in my life, I was paid the least amount of money known to man, and what money I did make was spent on my hotel room. Good thing they fed us like royalty!
from ramble-on :
"he’s not fat, he’s ribbed for my pleasure" HAHAHAHA nothing has made me laugh more in one week than this statement! NOTHING. Well....except for my never ending teasing about Boyfriend's "New" Reverend status. I am shocked that you had never seen Sleepy Hollow before. I was in the movie Starship Troopers and was able to meet Casper van Dien on the set, and then met him again when he was doing promotions for Sleepy Hollow. He was nice enough to sign several movie posters for me so I could hand them out to friends. It pays to have someone remember me. My mini shrine to Burton includes the Nightmare Before Christmas crap that I have strewn about. The life size Jack doll sealed the deal. IF you ever get the chance, on the special edition of NBC there is a short titled "Vincent" OMG!! LOVE IT more than words can possibly say! I am leary about TB's version of Willy Wonka though. I would imagine that it will be like some sort of crazy acid trip? I really don't know. IF it holds true to the book it will be. I am in love with the original movie though, and TB will have a lot to compete with. I will also have to promptly scrub my brain with bleach in order to restore my beautiful image of Johnny Depp after seeing this movie. DID You know, that Danny Elfman did the singing voice of Jack in NBC? Neat stuff. He is, by far, one of the greatest movie composers....EVER!
from hamlette2002 :
It's not a day for you to appreciate motherhood, it's a day for your brood to appreciate you! Personally, I'd be tempted to call a lawyer and have a will drawn up, just so I could cut them out of it until further notice. BWHAHAHAHAHA!
from bettyalready :
poor hubby. you hit the nail on the head with the "martyr" thing. I wasn't going to say that, but my mom mentions that a lot. She's super duper duper xtian, which is fine, but she does the martyr thing A LOT.
from funnypoops :
Poor hubby. I couldn't help but giggle at the ribbed comment though. My husband is of the giant variety and I think I'd go on an ass whuppin' spree if someone called him a fat ass lol. Your diary had me laughing and crying today, as well as hungering to watch Sleepy Hollow again. Great movie, and I LOVED Christopher Walken in it. How do you feel about Mr. Burton re-making Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? I love the guy, but have to admit I'm a tad skeptical because that was my favorite movie growing up... Ah well, I'm writing a novel here. Take care and have a great weekend!
from amomsmusings :
"Ribbed for my pleasure!" *explosive laughter* I'm retaining that one to use on my own dear hubby. :)
from amomsmusings :
I'm back! And thanks for missing me. Is it just me, or does "Runaway Bride" look crazed in all of her pictures? the tilted head, the wide eyed, deer-in-the-headlights-and-no-one's-at-home startled expression? (For lack of a more apt description.) I think her and Clueless deserve each other!
from bonnylisbon :
That's good advice, thanks so much. My dad actually brought that up and I of course wouldn't take his advice... he's my dad! But thank you. You're the mom everyone should have.
from breathtaken1 :
Thanks for the kind note re: my family. Hubby has some issues with some discs in his back, which is in turn pinching a nerve and giving him sciatica. Bad. An epidural steroid injection is the only thing which gives him any relief.

Ahhhh...come on now, you know you love me. And I know you would love me even more if I had the Tiki Bar of Greatness. Perhaps you could come over for a drink sometime and just marvel at it's Tiki Greatness? Bwahahahaha!!!!!!! At least I am not alone in my desire to own this thing. I have NO idea where I would put it, but by golly, I would find a place!
from funnypoops :
I hate guestbooks...they just seem like d-land notes to me, except you've got to put them in yourself. I *do* like things like saybox, doodleboard and the like, but doodleboard just switched to pay only (which means all us freebie junkies didn't even get a notice...they just stopped working) and that other big one I can't remember right now is a pain in the butt too. If you're interested in saybox, you can click the link on mine and you can set yourself up with one of those with minimal trouble. I'm rambling now. Bye Sally!

I have piles (yes PILES) of free standing laundry too. The kids are running out of clothes to wear! Gawd, you're so creative! I love the wall paper samples idea!

from ramble-on :
I thought it was a five year old GIRL they handcuffed. Or is this a new episode??? Oh, and thankfully, I am not the ONLY person on the planet who still reads Fangoria. I used to think it was a sickness, but now, I'm just weird.
from hamlette2002 :
Yeah, I most definitely smoothed over the times where I had chosen to stay home with the kids. My biggest worry is that they'll see those times and question my work ethic. It all sounds better when it's coming out of my mouth than it reads on paper, so I'm hoping I get the chance to clarify during my interview. As far as not being specific, they don't really give that option. They want ALL the specifics, and unfortunately, I just don't have them to give!
from sunnflower :
Ouch - glad you are okay after the bike tumble. I have been at that homework place you describe myself - hours of exhausting parental assistance!

I'd like to see the new Star Wars film but I am not standing in line for 7 weeks!
from groovyguru :
That's a dang nice offer to the techno-challenged guru. I could not let you guys do that though. I have not even talked myself into getting the Victory at Sea collection hahahaha. I am not exactly an impulse buyer. BTW. . . Tiki's keep the Clowns away. You're welcome.
from funnypoops :
Forty bucks to see a trailer? I can't say I'm the biggest Star Bores fan, but even if I was, I couldn't see camping out for seven weeks and spending a wad on a preview. For that grand $40, I could buy two tickets to the Dresden Dolls...though only after they stop touring with Nine Inch Nails *wail*
from hamlette2002 :
Isn't "Love You Forever" that little book where the mommy holds the baby, who eventually grows up and holds the mommy (I think until she dies, but I'm not sure)? Yeah, I read that one while I was pregnant, too. Standing in the middle of WailMart. Snot dribbling down and everything. That's someone's idea of a CHILDREN'S book?!? LOL!

I picked up a copy of the Little Prince a couple years ago at a yard sale, but never even cracked it open to see what was inside. Until you mentioned it. I'm on page 26. I'm thinking this is the most beautiful thing I've ever read and I never want it to end. But if they had forced me to read it as a child, I would've hated it.

Hey Sally! I've missed you so! D-land is being a hoity toity bitch to me at the moment and I'm glad that Hammie gave you my "password" even though I don't HAVE a password on it. Stay tuned to my move...I'll be switching to another diary site soon :(

Sam's Club is retail pornography for men.
from hamlette2002 :
Yep, it's good to live in Arizona, where we know that changing the clock has absolutely no effect on how long the sun is in the sky. Christine's diary is being a bugger, so when you go there, use aaaaa for the username AND password.
from bettyalready :
Jesus H. Christ. And I mean that in the holiest of ways. Vinca sounds like morning glory. Spreads like wildfire. That and millfoil in our lakes. can't get rid of it. I clicked into your diary several times, or tried and I got that fucked up page Andrew put up when the server went down and there was an extreme hardware failure. Messed up everything and Dland is still buggy. I talked to cousins in AZ. They do not to daylight savings time nor does Hawaii. Why do we still do it? screw up everyone's biorythyms.
from breathtaken1 :
I really was ready to call the FBI. Thought maybe you had been abducted by aliens. But a 3 week spring break? That is even worse! Glad to know you are fine.
from hamlette2002 :
I was just checking up on you. I hope everything's going okay for you! We haven't heard anything for awhile.
from amomsmusings :
I've been absent from D'land for a while, so thanks for your "I brake for manatees" observation. Tee hee hee!
from bonnylisbon :
I just got the note you left me, I'm assumming a long time ago. Thanks so much Mrs. Sallydallydo, you always know how to make me feel better, you say the nicest things. How are the kids, the hubby?

To learn what my name meant, I just went to Yahoo and did a search for "name meanings". I don't recall exactly where I got my information, I should have bookmarked the site, but I didn't =( Hope it helps!

Come do my house now...please??? Great room!! I love that bedding. What fabric is that yellow fanatsy quilt and dust ruffle? I reminds me of something the Elves would have in LOTR...
from hamlette2002 :
Wow, the room looks fantastic! And way funny about the paleantologist. LOL. People keep thinking I'm studying to be a LOBotomist, and have a hard time understanding why I stare at their veins like a leech looking for a hot meal...

OH, they are adorable! Do you think the boyfriend even knows what Miami Vice is? Hee hee! I can just imagine how her dad is ready to bust out with the chastity belt and homing device. She looks just gorgeous - and likely to get more so with time! And pssssssssssssssst, Christine - what are you trying to say? I know you're not talking about MY nose...are you?
from funnypoops :
Your daughter is such an absolute cutie! Her guy friend looked thrilled to be with her lol. I have to agree with you on the whiners some people are trying to churn out. I can guarantee that we'd have a lot more accepting, strong minded kids if we'd teach them how to lose with dignity instead of giving them the false hope that everyone's always going to be there to wipe their noses and bow to every whine.

Eh, OK so I am the only one who finds this entertaining. Shark bait ooh haha....
from bettyalready :
haha. I'm assuming that previous note was about loving tennesee. Did I spell that right? I like what your doctor prescribed a lot better because the 2 benadryl knocked me out for 5 hours. Which isn't terrible, but I have stuff to do and BooBoo's to hang with.

from hamlette2002 :
Hee hee - reminds me of here! We get snow, and if it's been too long since the LAST snow, they cancel school, and it's gone by mid-afternoon.
from ramble-on :
Hmmm....your pictures looked like Maryland this morning. It was enough snow to cancel school apparently. It had melted by this afternoon, and this is why it puzzles me further that they cancelled school.

You are so cute. Oh by the way, I read your little bio on the Going Nowhere site, and it just cracked me up. Good job.

I LOVE bleach! If my girls got an outfit from Lim*ted II and played in the creek, I would send them off to military school.

Hey, I COULD drop in - you left a return address! LOL! Of course, it'll have to wait until MY laundry is done, and then there's sis-in-law's wedding, then buddy John's wedding, then Hawaiian anniversary adventure...hmm. Maybe I need you do drop in on ME. ACK!

No strep here WOOHOO!!! It was a false alarm. BTW, tell boat buddy I am but a phone call away, as usual, if he needs anything while you are at your "pajama party". I am hoping the familydallydo gets rid of that dang strep as soon as possible. Groovyguru

I, too, missed out on the joys of siblinghood - by the time my sisters came along, I was freshly a teenager...ANYWAY...the rest of what I have to say deserves its own space, SO...
from funnypoops :
Yep, I too had a sibling that I *had* to battle with. Fortunately that stopped when I was about 19 and she jumped on my back while I was sleeping. They don't call 'em slipped discs for nothin'! As for your hubbie, perhaps you should get a whole pack of post-its and write your outing on every single one. Then you can place them all over the house.

Migraines suck. You'd hate where I live because we have the most fluctuating temps in the U.S. Another honor above and beyond being the hometown of Brad Pitt!

Now that I'm not high anymore I'm catching up on my reading. I'm so glad that things are all good where Son is concerned. Sounds like spring fever is setting in early at your house. Ah, love is in the air!
from funnypoops :
Aw Sally. I just had a chance to catch up on your entries and my poor lil heart just fell when I thought your son was being bullied. I'm so happy that things were straightened out and weren't as serious as first thought. Sounds to me like puppy love is rearing it's adorable head too...so cute! Oh, and I'm with Hammie, share the recipe if you find that potion!
from hamlette2002 :
Forget rummaging through her purse, find her supplier! And share!

Cheer up! At least he didn't put you on an Anglo-Saxon-foods-only diet. Can you imagine spending the rest of your life eating dishes like "spotted dick" and "bangers & mash"? Seriously, though, I promise to be the very best a phlebotomist can be. I never want to put anyone through pain like that. Also, keep in mind that you CAN request that someone else do your draw! If no one else is available, then insist on either waiting until someone else is, or insist on going somewhere else to have the draw taken.

good luck on the road to skinny and healthy

I totally agree it's a bad situation to send them to. I am going to consult with a lawyer that a coworker used. Her girls were assaulted by their biological dad...I'm just really sick. I want to teach them to feel good about their bodies, etc. etc. and now its' going to be an uphill battle.

That is so cute that you mentioned Bill Gates...I was going to leave you a note saying that I had heard he had aspergers. Also...was it Eisnstein? I think...
from breathtaken1 :
Ah yes...your entry makes perfect sense now...I almost asked if he was autistic from your tone. And I totally feel your pain. I know all about Aspergers. I don't have a child with it, but I have worked with some autistic children, and my son had a friend who was autistic, I don't think he has Aspergers. He is smart and does fine academically, but his speech and behavior is pretty different from the other kids.

That's heartbreaking. Daughter #3 is precious but she just doesn't quite fit in. If she went to public school I know that she'd face the same things. It hurts. I send you *hugs.*

from breathtaken1 :
So sorry he is going through that, it is so hard to see our kids hurting. I couldn't tell from your entry, does your son have some kind of disability or something, or is it just the little eveyday differences between kids to which you were referring? Either way, don't you wish kids could be more compassionate towards each other? Too bad kids can't having crystal balls to peer into to see that they will actually turn out fine, and that they will be happy one day :)
from sunnflower :
It's so hard to see our kids in pain and to be struggling with the difficulties of relationships in school settings. Hugs to you and your son. P.S. I really enjoy your diary and wish you would add a way to allow comments on your entries - like haloscan or the supergold diaryland membership.
from amomsmusings :
Happy Valentines's Day! Sounds like you're set up for a good one. Hope your leeching goes well. I've been to Maryville. Man, you really do live in God's country.

Hi from Suburban Island. Awww, you added my diary to your Diaryland Favorites list. I'm so glad! Thanks!
from bettyalready :
Nah, not banned forever. That episode really pissed me off. There's a lot of twisted humor I tolerate, but this was way too much like something out of the real life crime shit I watch. It was totally out of line. It takes a lot to piss me off too. It was gross.

" You just fully legitimized my utter hatred of clowns. Thank you. And now I will be plagued by disturbing mental images for the rest of my life." Hey, as they say in Jamaica, "No Problem Mon!" I aim to please! Imagine MY horror at the mere thought of this as well. Me, the very person who refuses to walk 10 feet from a storm drain simply because of the book IT. I just had to share it with the rest of the world who does not, or is not able to, listen to Howard Stern. Good times...

So today I read your entry and I was just thinking about politcal incorrectness in cartoons. Like how I'm surprised Disney Peter Pan isn't banned or something. Boo loves Peter Pan. She jumps on the couch with a stick and says "Whack you Peter Pan!"
from funnypoops :
How incredibly bizarre you mention the "edited for families" people. Paul and I just watched a movie the other night called Walking Across Egypt. Before the movie started a talking popcorn box let us know that we wouldn't find violence, cursing or sexually explicit behavior on our edited movie. We of course sighed and mentally said darn, but it wasn't too bad. But then, I doubt that a Jonathan Taylor Thomas movie *would* have much in the way of our favorite sins lol.

You go, Sally! Children are born with naturally THICK skulls - to protect those precious little brains from the grandiose acts of DUH which the impetous little beasts believe they are immune to. While this does little to instill a sense of mortality in them, it DOES give the parents the opportunity to create a belief that they are NOT immortal - hence the phrase, "Oh my gawd, my mom/dad is going to KILL me..."
from bettyalready :
Ah yes, the leather belt of which my dad used on me maybe once, yet I still remember it AND really all he had to do was give me a "look". I much feared the dad. But he was cool. So good for you for being in a good mood. Baby kenobi still lacks the RED RED hair, but he's still got time. He's working on chubbiness, he's also working on the RED.

Good to see you back, and I'm happy you missed the D-land blackout...unless you didn't and I just missed you not missing it. Erm...anyways...Glad you're almost finished moving! It'll be a load off and hopefully they'll fix your cable soon! I know I've been having withdrawls *whimper*.
from groovyguru :
I took your TV character test . . . I am "Venus Fly Trap" from WKRP. Did you ever doubt my grooviness?!!!
from bettyalready :
Oh hey, you're son has FLAMING RED HAIR! I totally missed that picture. That's the best color. My cousin's kid has that hair. That was the color of my grandpa's hair. Which would explain my red hair. Or something.
from irisheyes70 :
Money tree, eh? I assume you're being sarcastic. :) Back in the early 90's, there were a lot of teachers who moved to my state because we paid teachers the best. I knew of a couple who actually were in it for the money. None of them became Trump, but they were happy! LOL Umm... I don't know how happy their students were, however! Today a teacher can retire after 27 years and including benefits (which is everything and the kitchen sink) with 80K according to the school district. Not that they don't deserve that, but dude. I need that kind of retirement package!
from bettyalready :
Oh yeah, and I was hoping for a flaming red head too. Although it's been my experience that red head boys get a ton of crap thrown at them. I'll teach him to kick someone's ass or something.
from bettyalready :
You are hilarious. I love the money tree.
from hamlette2002 :
Oh, GOD! NO! *digging up the number for the therapist* Yet another lie my parents told me! "Money doesn't grow on trees..." I'm now permanently scarred.
from captainron :
Hmmm, The teachers here don't have money trees that I know of, By the size of my taxes, they get their money directly from me. That explains the lounge I guess...
from breathtaken1 :
As a current substitute teacher, I can say that they do not hand out the money tree to us subs. Damn, they never even told us about it. As for the teachers' lounge, I am not sure which is my favorite part....hmmm...let me see, smelly fridge? no. The bitching and complaining? no. The everpresent junk food which has singlehandedly caused me to go back onto Atkins this new year? Yes!!! I knew it was something.
from spritopias :
Dude, that's hilarious. I love the teacher's lounge! Don't let people in on the secret! SHH!
from hamlette2002 :
*jumping up and down on Christine saying, "Neener neener, neeeeeeeeener! I'm on tooooo-oooooop!"* hee hee! Wow, I was beginning to think I was the only mom in the world with a brunette AND a redhead, both by the same dad! LOL! And my daughter is the one who will grin like an idiot when presents abound. Alex is just GENERALLY a ham (no pun intended)!
from funnypoops :
Thank goodness for school! The holidays are lovely (in small doses!) but it's always nice to get back to the swing of things. Nice pics of the kidlets btw :)
from hamlette2002 :
And neither will any of your contacts online! Ha!!! Send a copy of your letter to the editor of your local newspaper(s)!
from hamlette2002 :
Poor Sally! Hon, if I was you, I wouldn't bother with @-ing the word U-Haul. Make sure that when people look them up in a search engine that they come across your site and see what bums they are!
from bettyalready :
I DESPISE U haul. DESPISE. They are so awful. I saw a 60 minute story about how crappy their trucks are (long time ago). I have gone in there twice to buy boxes and I waited and waited and waited because they totally messed up a dudes rental truck. They rented the truck he reserved to someone else. God they were just awful. So I go with Ryder or some local rental thing.
from bonnylisbon :
Happy New Year to you as well! :)
from chubbychic :
Omgosh, your commentary on the plight of male decorating skills had me in stitches!
from bettyalready :
I have to say that the New Year in Review entry is by far pure genius. It is my favorite entry thus far. Ever.
from thedevlyn :
so here's the deal. this note is to wish you a wonderful period of 52 weeks. one per customer, limited to stock on hand, no dealers or rain checks. no guarente as to their future value nor their servicability. 52 weeks to be used as your own risk. subject to local and other taxes. not to be combined with any other offers. thank you and have a pleasant tomorrow.
from breathtaken1 :
Thanks, and Happy New Year to you as well!
from hamlette2002 :
Amen, darlin'! Hurray for the end of the season...with any luck, I'll be able to resurrect my house from disaster area status, now that I don't have two bazillion projects to finish all at once!
from breathtaken1 :
Hope you feel better soon. Miserable time of the year to be sick. Probably caught it during all the drive by Christmas-ing!
from bonnylisbon :
Just got the note you left a while ago (I think), thank you thank you thank you.
from captainron :
When ones vessel draws 7 1/2 feet of water, one is very particular where one keeps ones boat. I wonder how far it is to sail from Tennesee to Nantucket? As the folks from Maine are fond of saying, Can't get there from here. Besides I'm a bit old to be learning a second language, don't you think? :-) Happy Toaster Day, Ron
from bettyalready :
I hope you made it home ok and am glad to hear everyone is ok.
from bonnylisbon :
Oh I do love the name Elliott Smith. I haven't been reading diaries lately, but I'm gonna catch up on yours, you got hit by an SUV? I'll read up on it, I sincerely hope all is well with you.
from groovyguru :
I am sorry to hear of your families loss today. I am always here for you guys. If you need anything at all done while you are away be sure to call. Be safe while there and on the way home. Things here will be taken care of so don't about anything this side of the mountains. Love you guys!
from chubbychic :
Your family is in my prayers, sweetheart. *hugs*
from bettyalready :
Oh I'm so very sorry to hear that.
from hamlette2002 :
Boobah comes on every weekday morning after Body Electric on PBS here. Just the opening, horrific Boooooooooooobaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh would set my nerves on edge. I wouldn't be able to concentrate long enough to even turn on the computer, my nerves would be so rattled. I only WISH I was exaggerating.
from hamlette2002 :
I could just go on and on about that entry! But I will keep it short and sweet - I'm glad your lesion was benign, and I'm sorry about the car, and the bills, and...oh, I said I was going to keep this short, didn't I? Well, tell your hubby I outbid the Guru with two cheesecakes and an afghan!
from funnypoops :
Ack! Check to see if you don't have an ulcer instead of popping the tums lol. What a whirlwind of events...bad, good or otherwise! It's great to see you back Sally darling, we've missed you! Kudos to your daughter for her hasty 100 and I really hope to see you around more if/when/ever you can pry the computer away from your husband!
from breathtaken1 :
I saw those in the SkyMall magazine on the airplane! They look nice and cuddly and warm!
from groovyguru :
Heeeey Otto, WELCOME BACK! Good to see you all back safely. Jeb finished off our turkey a couple days back. He is looking forward to christmas now I am sure!
from hamlette2002 :
Happy Thanksgiving, Sally! Hurray for letting the turkey thaw all week in the fridge LOL...
from bettyalready :
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
from funnypoops :
Happy Thanksgiving to you too Sally doll. Your entry sent my heart a-pounding with all those NOISES! I'd be going crazy about now. It'd be a short trip anyways. Hope that turkey day is great for you and your family.
from groovyguru :
Yarrr . . . she be working fine here. Me Pirate name be "Captain Blade McSlain" on both computers that were tried. Try again when you return to port IF YE DARE!!!
from irisheyes70 :
I was pondering the difference between bands and groups too. What was up with that?!
from bettyalready :
So yeah, sciatic nerve and not being able to walk or breathing problems. I think I'd rather walk. I notice sciatic problems even now so I can imagine what would happen if he was lower. Ouch.
from bonnylisbon :
You are too much for me! You are like the ulitimate super human, fantastic person. Thanks for the note, YOUR KIDS ARE SOOOO LUCKY.
from bettyalready :
shaggy chic sounds a lot more interesting & there's so much she could do with it. So much to add later. Sounds fun!!
from hamlette2002 :
*viciously pries stomach out of heart* I'm so glad it was nothing as horrifying as meningitis, and I'm sure giving up the Christmas present early was worth but a fraction the gift you got in exchange! Here's to the health of the dallydo family for the rest of the season and beyond!
from funnypoops :
Glad your lil guy is feeling better. A four inch needle?! Yikes...I would have faked feeling better to get out of that one!
from funnypoops :
Hmm...perhaps I should send a bulk box of Calgon and Chocolates. Now that I think of it, I bet we could make a killing if we opened a business that sold nothing but!
from bettyalready :
Thanks for the hope of a little red head!! My girls all have some red in their hair, but nothing like me. I wonder where I came from because no one in my family has red hair. No extended family either. I'm a genetic mutation.
from bettyalready :
I just saw your comment in irisheyes diary about paying rent for 3 consecutive paychecks. RIGHT HERE! We're doing that too. I hate it.
from bonnylisbon :
Still here, and somewhat ok.
from chubbychic :
When I read your blurb about Arafat, I nearly got out of my seat and cheered.
from breathtaken1 :
Thank you so much for the nice note...and ditto! I am ading you to my list as well. :)
from groovyguru :
It was a delecate balance between maximum velocity, precise timing in the release, and placing his scrawny plastic butt directly in the center of the motorcycle. But when you're in the "zone" . . . it was a thing of beauty. BTW, I saw Evel on TV the other day. Loved his new truck! I may have to paint the Gray Ghost like his ride hahahahaha.
from groovyguru :
oops . . . hit the button to soon. We are open for a matinee!
from groovyguru :
There are many who say I am "off" everyday . . . but as far as do I work those dates, yep. I have to work every single weekend this month . . . AND thanksgiving. But I am sooooooo ready for the sponge to hit the big screen. How many times can I tell the boys "STOP SPENDING ME MONEY!" at the candy counter? What is the over/under?
from groovyguru :
Thankies muchly for the Birthday wishes! I think I will let the candles burn into a smoldering heap and dance around the carnage like a heathern bwaaahahahaha. See ya'll in a couple hours!
from bonnylisbon :
I love stories like yours! I think it's just mainly the time I live in, or perhaps it's just these "California girls" I know, but it's like, nobody believes in love. The girls I've known thought it was a much better idea to fool around, or have sex with boys they feel nothing for. I've never been like that, I love love, I love being in love. I think the idea of marriage is nice.
from hamlette2002 :
Just thought I'd let you know: My instructor IS letting me retake that test! She totally cleared the old score and is going to let me have the new one in it's place! I'm so glad I decided to listen to you and Christine!
from irisheyes70 :
Great entry today! The Mr. Krabbs thing cracked me up and the Bible verse fed my soul. Doesn't get much better than that. I'm sorry about your house of snot, sweetie! I hope everyone is well soon!
from groovyguru :
I use the two programs hand in hand. I like how it works out. You will have to bring the familydallydo over soon and we can work on some graphics. I have to get busy on making Donalds control panel too. I have to get the plans from Boat Buddy as soon as possible. I had to make Guru III a wooden flower for his project . . . that he failed to tell me about and which is due friday. It is finished except for his paintjob. Oh, and I have to rebuild the ladies access ramp at the pink house today. Can I have an advance on that ibuprophen?!!!!
from hamlette2002 :
Take a little nap, get up in the middle of the night while everyone else is asleep, and watch the rest of your movie in peace and quiet. I think it's the only way!!!
from groovyguru :
I did not even remotely answer your question, did I? I used paint shop pro and microsoft image composer to make the graphics. I am sorry about that. Yesterday I was in bed almost all day with a headache that would have ko'ed a bull. Any light just magnified it by 1000 when it hit my eyeballs. That damn truck is going to give me a stroke!
from groovyguru :
To tell the truth, making my graphics keep me sane. I have been at the end of the rope for some time now hahahaha. There is only so much work you can do on a clear night you know!
from irisheyes70 :
Our bank account is screwed seriously as well. It's called the husband factor. He refuses to keep track of everything, thinking that he can keep it in his head. This has been proven to be a defective plan for his entire 35 years, but at least he's not a quitter. Gah! I hope daughter feels better soon, and your son's finger heals quickly!
from bonnylisbon :
You are so CRAZY strong! Were you always so... smart, sensible, good? How long did you and hubby date before you were married? Any bad breakups?
from hamlette2002 :
LOL! I don't think anyone's ever scrolled "Hammie Rocks!" for me LOL! Mwaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!
from mstblue :
Hey, sorry so long to respond... I love the Hilary Pic, and your depiction! Great stuff!!!!!
from hamlette2002 :
Here's another fun toy for you to play with: <MARQUEE bgcolor="silver" direction="right" loop="20" width="75%">Insert text here...</MARQUEE>
from bonnylisbon :
Thanks for being so good, even when everything seems so bad.
from funnypoops :
Your font and html bug has bitten me. I hope you're happy...you should keep that thing in a jar or something. My whole morning is wasted, I've had to sit with an aromatic cup of hot coffee on this cold Saturday morning and FORCE myself to look at fonts. Pffft... Hehehe. *hugs*!
from groovyguru :
I want to take a moment and add that meeting Mr. Al was one of the true pleasures that happen in lifes journey. He was a pleasure to know. Let it be known that his legacy continues through Sally. She is quite possibly the sweetest lady I have ever met. It is my good fortune to have our paths cross as they have. My family will always be there for you Sally. Joe

And this is just for you (I pre-tested it, just copy and paste): <span style="width: 200%; font-size: 40px; font-family: edwardian script itc; color: black; Filter: Glow(Color= silver, Strength=15)">Sallydallydo</span>
from hamlette2002 :
I'm so glad that your dad's final year was filled with so much love and respect. I hope I manage to make enough of a difference that I feel ready when my time comes. Happy Anniversary to your dad. I'll keep you in mind today, because I know it's still hard when you can't talk face-to-face to someone who's made such a huge and wonderful impact on your life.
from captainron :
Thank you so much for the kind comments. My did died at 49. Cancer... Sorry for your loss. This a nice site. Not only will I be back, I'll be adding you as a fave too.
from captainron :
Yeah, it is just sad isn't it? Normal rational folks just turned into rabid dogs over something they can't change and that will have made little difference anyway. Thanks for stopping by and happy Wednesday!
from hamlette2002 :
You might want to edit that html thingie you have on your page - it needs a </font> tag, otherwise, the font carries through the rest of the text until it hits a closing tag ;-)
from groovyguru :
Oh NO! I hope that Missdallydo feels alot better tonight! Dang the luck. She made it through halloween without the self imposed sugar sickness and dang if she doesn't get the stomach virus. Let me know if you need anything. Groovyguru
from funnypoops :
Did I create a monster when I suggested that html site or were you already on your way to becoming a monster? lol. I'm really enjoying seeing your diary grow and all the nifty new things you're trying out. Love it!
from mstblue :
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Sally! *The Best Man Won* God Bless America!
from betchy :
i think deep down i jst kind of felt sorry for him. its not his fault he has problems. one time, i was on my way home from clubbing, and i saw him sat shivering in a bus stop. i was a bit drunk which made me a bit fearless, and even knowing that he can be potentially violent, i went and gave him 2 quid and told him to go get himself a kebab. and he never thanked me. to be honest i dont think he even knew who i was. never mind. anyway, thanks for the note!
from thedevlyn :
if only you had a button... perhaps you should look at my page again.
from hamlette2002 :
Congratulations on your 100th entry! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your diary!
from bonnylisbon :
OH, he'll get used to being the temple virgin, people have gotten used to weirder things :)
from quietguy :
I prefer neon signs. Dropping hints? Can't women just say "I'm interested in you." It would make things so much easier. --Q.G.
from quietguy :
How can you be so certain? --Q.G.
from bonnylisbon :
HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO YOU SALLY! I loved the jack-o-lantern that's barfing, fun stuff. Have you gotten my letter in the mail yet?
from groovyguru :
DANG! I totally forgot to list the flying monkeys! They used to make me run to the alien free zone under the end table too. What is it with mutant primates that scares the heebie-jeebies out of me? Just keep your eyes out for Kong . . . I think he is just laying low, waiting to spring upon us when we least expect it! Groovyguru
from jbat :
Heh. heheheheehee. Friends help you move. REAL friends help you move bodies. Thankfully I have a few of those. And as a fellow bakery, go Baking You! Those days that domestication kicks in are very nice indeed--especially all the goodies that come out of it.
from bonnylisbon :
Oh shush! I saw the picture of you and hubby, you're gorgeous!
from chubbychic :
OMGosh, that recipe sounds sooooo good. Yum
from quietguy :
It is an evil age in which we live. I don't want to say live like Ted Kaczynski, but the time is coming close where we might. Last night was proof of that. What will happen Tuesday? Needless to say I fear for the future of the civilized world. 2004 for has been a terrible year. I'm losing hope for mankind. --Q.G.
from thedevlyn :
you are far too kind, but thank you...*in bad fake elvis tone*... thankyaverymuch.
from irisheyes70 :
Okay, chickie. Where are the recipes here? I'm *drooling*!!
from littlelloyd :
CHA! RIGHT! Someday I'll post a picture of my arms. But I guess I'm happy that someone would give credit to those ones to me. :P
from bonnylisbon :
It is an amazing thing that you and I can talk about this kind of stuff without being stoned to death. I also find it fantastic that I'm so fond of you and you're voting for Bush! You are teaching me a thing or two about a thing or two :)
from quietguy :
Some times the QG needs reassurance. I've been very depressed lately. I thank you for reading me :-) --QG.
from funnypoops :
I'm voting for Bush too. To be honest, I don't care for any of the candidates, but I'd prefer to see him back in office above any of the others. I too, love your new layout. It's a ton easier to get to your notes, AND it's pretty to boot!
from irisheyes70 :
Nice picture of President Bush! I can't wait to vote for him. If Kerry wins I'm going to have to live in a cave for four years and I'm too high maintenence for that crap. :)
from hamlette2002 :
Ooooooh, nifty new background! Way nice, and so much easier to get to your notes now, too!
from bonnylisbon :
I just got your last note. Maybe I should learn to drive, eh? I could just... drive away. Come back magically better, happier, nicer? That sounds good, I may take your advice. I really dig your new diary layout by the way, it's beautiful! By the way, who are you voting for? Too personal?
from bonnylisbon :
I got your package Friday, I can't EVEN start babbling here, I'll cry, I know it. So, I'll just say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU a hundred times over. No one has EVER put that much thought into me. You have something from yours truly coming your way very soon, promise. Oh yeah... THANK YOU.
from funnypoops :
It's too bad I can't air express you the super strong coffee my husband makes for days like that lol. You're going to have to get up yesterday to get all that stuff done! I hope your daughter has a good time camping (loved that kind of stuff growing up!) and your Victim...uh...son's Principal doesn't hang him by his toenails. If you DO wind up making it through dinner, tell us how it was o_O
from funnypoops :
My dogs, too, are Overlords. My husband refuses to keep them off the furniture. I have to admit that I'm a little less harsh with my chihuahua, because he's so small. Therefore I can't very well stop my chow/lab from enjoying the comfort. I'm the same as you when it comes to furniture though. Paul doesn't know when he'll come in and find the whole house moved around or a new *something* sitting in the living room (hence the paint job in the bedroom without talking to him first lol)
from bonnylisbon :
I'm sorry to hear about your cousin. When I was younger I couldn't understand why counselors, teachers, and people like talk show hosts would say that suicide is soooo selfish, I didn't get it. Couldn't comprehend what they meant, to me it seemed kind of selfless. Now that I'm older, it's like a big "duh" kick in the face! Of course it's selfish. Anyhow, long live the mighty mighty Boston Red Sox!
from hamlette2002 :
Whaddya mean by tainting that statement ("what a great mom") with sarcasm? If my kids told me they wanted help to stop moving, it would probably involve duct tape and a ceiling fan. Or a closet. But I like the ceiling fan...
from jbat :
80's music-wooohooooo! And I'm still waiting for the Tick animated series to come out on DVD. Because that is comedy gold! Glad to see everything is going well and that you are indeed trying to take Godzilla more seriously. 'Cause if a big green lizard rising out of the ocean to stomp your city flat isn't serious, I don't know what is.
from irisheyes70 :
Yeeehaw! I saw Duran Duran's new video the other night. *sigh* It did my heart good. Now if Rick Springfield could make a decent comeback.... :)
from littlelloyd :
It's never fun to break a piece of art. JB Weld works really well on ceramics. It's a 2 part epoxy you can find at hardware stores. My buddy is moving back down that way here in a week or two, and will be building a kiln in a year or so. I'll be sure and give a shout out when I come down to help with that, then I'll try and fix whatever broken picachews are left. :)
from irisheyes70 :
Batman rules. Accept no substitute. Burgess Meredith was the penguin in that one, wasn't he? I LOVED that.
from bonnylisbon :
Your kindness and encouragement never ceases to amaze me, or make me feel better. Thank you for being you, and for being my "buddy." :)
from bonnylisbon :
I wish I'd remember this for more then a day. Whenever I'm getting over being sick, the whole day I'm reminding myself, "Doesn't it feel good to be healthy again? This is what it's like to be able to breathe, isn't great that you're not coughing all the time? How fantastic that food once again appears to be appealing!" By tomorrow, I'll take it all for granted again. I can't wait to get your package, I'll tell you as soon as I do!
from bonnylisbon :
I ate the yummy things you told me to. I don't know if it's because of you, or just because it was its time to go, but the nasty cold is gone gone gone!
from hamlette2002 :
I simply revel in my complexity.
from bonnylisbon :
Food has sounded soooo unappealing until you mentioned applesauce and ginger ale, maybe some brown rice? You are a super mom!
from bonnylisbon :
That was a weird dream, wasn't it? Maybe it was just the fever kicking in. Thanks for making me feel better, sometimes I feel insane when it comes to Alex. Kind of like, "I do not think I could POSSIBLY love this person more," you know? Anyhow, I am anxiously awaiting your wonderful (I'm sure) package :)
from hamlette2002 :
Oh, Sally, have I mentioned how much I love you?!? All's I can say is "Amen, Sista!" regarding the protesters and chivalry. After all, what good is it to be a girl if you can't get a guy to steady you as you step down from your chariot - er, minivan?
from spritopias :
I can't find it! I am so ashamed! I will keep looking, thanks for adding me, you're a doll.
from hamlette2002 :
We don't get report cards until next week - the first one of the year comes with a free parent/teacher conference lol. I'm looking forward to it!
from bonnylisbon :
Thanks so much. I am slowly getting better.
from funnypoops :
Whoo! Awesome for your kids (and you!) I remember being thrilled when I brought home a report card, and the thrill of seeing my parents NOT pissed off at me lol. So do the kids get rewards for good grades, or are the good grades the rewards?
from quietguy :
Snazzy dresser? I thank you very much. You have me blushing. ;-) Have a good night --Q.G.
from hamlette2002 :
Aw, nice picture of you indeed!
from groovyguru :
oh, and you know how to post images, I know how to make them (pppppppphhht) hahahaha. Let me know if I can make one for you. Groovyguru
from groovyguru :
. . . and now you know why men like 3-D maps of mountains! Groovyguru
from hamlette2002 :
Aw, all three of them are cute! Now...where's YOUR pic?
from funnypoops :
What a handsome family! Your kids are just the cutest!
from littlelloyd :
Hey thanks for the note, and the um, pressure to be funny? Kinda goes in waves, I cannot promise anything. But I am enjoying your read so far. Have a good one.
from funnypoops :
Hey! Glad you found my links useful *grin* By the way; LOVE the pic of you...we could be twins!
from funnypoops :
Thanks for the pic Sally! What a gorgeous cabinet...and no information for it? I like the idea of Antique's Roadshow, but I'm sure it's not the easiest show to get on because there always seems to be a ton of people milling around in the backgrounds... I've got adaware, but I'll have to check out the other one. Thanks for the advice hon. Oh! I was just thinking about it, and if you want to learn the html so you can post pictures and whatnot on your diary, try http://werbach.com/barebones/barebones.html It's the most extensive html guide I've found, and it's really helpful. You'll need a place to host your images, but you can do that at www.villagephotos.com or http://onfinite.three10.com/
from bonnylisbon :
Do you ever watch PBS? You should take your cabinet to a taping of Antiques Roadshow. It's this great fucking show where people bring in old crap they found at yard sales or estate sales, some bring in stuff passed down in their families, and some know they're bringing in rare things and they just want it priced. Anyhow, experts tell you everything about whatever you bring in, and then they tell you how much it's worth. I love that show.
from hamlette2002 :
Try looking up the model number on eBay...you never know WHAT you'll find there, if even just a model name!
from bonnylisbon :
Thank god you have shown me a very un-creepy South. If you're from the South, then the South has gotta be good! All that funny stuff you said about Californians is true, I swear it is :)
from chubbychic :
Thanks for the encouragement, Sweety *hugs*
from funnypoops :
You definately sound like one smitten kitten! What an awesome find! I love things like that...unfortunately, my hubbie is more....uh....ecclectic? He actually prefers the Rosanne Conner look to anything that goes together. His idea of put together is doing our livingroom (eventually) as a medievil armoury lol. Congrats on your wonderful finds. Wish we could see a pic!
from hamlette2002 :
Oh my goodness, I got giddy just READING about it. If we ever have another rainy, miserable day, I'm going to come back and read that entry!
from funnypoops :
So glad you're back and reported a good time! I love it when trips can turn out so well! It sounds like you guys had a blast. Welcome home though!
from thedevlyn :
you better shut up about how great your town is. we used to make those lists and then people took it to heart and moved here...
from hamlette2002 :
I'm so glad to see you back - it sounds like you had a wonderful time. And when are the kids going to start 12-hour school days? No school on Columbus Day. Sheesh! I sent my daughter to school. I'm paying for that education through my property taxes, doggone it, she'll go whether they want her or not! MWaahahahaahahahahaha!!!!!!
from jbat :
Hope you enjoyed the beach--hopefully snot free!
from bonnylisbon :
I sent you an e-mail today! It was short and lame because I didn't have much time. I was at the library on a timed computer and I could have sworn that the freak next to me was touching his Mr. Happy, eeewwww, I know.
from bonnylisbon :
Wherever you're going, I hope you have loads of fun and get back safely :)
from hamlette2002 :
So here's what you do - start a new diary. Only put stuff in it that you're willing for her to read. Don't link it to your current diary. That way she doesn't feel left out of your inner thoughts, and you don't have to feel naked in front of her.
from bonnylisbon :
Oh yeah, something else; I'll e-mail you soon!
from bonnylisbon :
I imagine that when your kids are mad over something silly and yell, "I hate you," you know they don't REALLY mean it, but doesn't it bother you ... a little?
from groovyguru :
I hope that mamadallydo and S.O. got there okay. Happy day late birthday to her! On a different note, everything is "GO" for the NC trip! Let me tell you, I am soooooo in need of some down time. Ain't it nice to know you will be groovin' with the guru?! hahahahahaha
from hamlette2002 :
How funny - I-40 runs smack through the middle of my town. I'm closer to the western end of it, though. It ends in Barstow, CA. I was just there last weekend!
from bonnylisbon :
p.s. What's your e-mail address?
from bonnylisbon :
I just read your entries and I am crying crying crying like a baby!! You are so angelic and fantastic and beautiful!! Thank you so much for your kind words, and for the FUCKING AUTOGRAPHS!!! Oh I adore you! And when your kids get to that silly age where they yell, " I HATE YOU!" for not letting them do something completely ridiculous like piercing their nose, I will personally find my way to your house and tell those kids how goddamn lucky they are to have such a cool mama. I adore you, truly.
from bonnylisbon :
Yes! I will read your latest entry, and I sincerely hope you had a fucking blast at The Cramps concert.
from groovyguru :
Oky-Dokes, the Guru III story is up and running as requested. Hope you guys had a blast at the concert!
from sallydallydo :
Thank you, but NO NO NO NO...I had to post it 'cuz I don't have her email address...go read and give HER all the credit for persevering through some tough stuff. I'm amazed at this girl's grit.
from funnypoops :
If you aren't one of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I've ever had the pleasure of talking to... What an awesome thing to do for someone. You rock!
from bonnylisbon :
OH HOW YOU MAKE ME LAUGH!!! I'm sorry, but by the time I got to the part of your newest entry where your mother fell off the porch...well, you know, I'm glad she's alright, but that is too funny for words.
from quietguy :
You give me far too much credit. Thank you very much for your kind note. :-) Q.G.
from groovyguru :
It is great to hear that Guru Jr. had things well in hand. I have ordered him to "stand down" as I have assumed command of the Guru Lair again. Guru Jr, when alerted, could make a SEAL beg for mercy if confronted. Guru III is not as subtle . . . he would just drop an anvil on the intruder's noggin'. BRAVO ZULU (Navy for well done) to the Guru crew in my absence! Groovyguru
from hamlette2002 :
I need a sedative after just READING about your week! Best of luck to you on getting all the way through it!
from irisheyes70 :
That entry was priceless! Hubba hubba hubba, she's a fox, Buck. Remember that? Yeah. I had a mad crush on Gil Gerard. And the guys on Battlestar Gallactica, etc. etc. The end all and be all was Rick Springfield though. Jesse's girl was a complete moron! :)
from bonnylisbon :
I haven't written in ages!! The Pixies were amazing, I'm going to do an entry on it soon. Good luck with The Cramps, hopefully you don't get seated next to some "punk rock" thirteen year old wearing a Good Charlotte t-shirt, groan. You're great!
from hamlette2002 :
You'll be HTML savvy yet! Glad to hear good news about the Guru's Papaw!
from funnypoops :
*Applaudes loudly* Good for you hon! HTML looks complicated until you start doing it. You can do some really nifty things with it. I found a HTML guide at http://werbach.com/barebones/barebones.html that is REALLY good. It coveres most of the basics, as well as a few that aren't widely used. As for what the majority of your entry consisted of...great for him! I don't read his diary, but it's wonderful all the same that his pawpaw is feeling better.
from hamlette2002 :
I have to agree, it's nice not "being on the market." I see what my few single friends have gone through, as well as my sister-in-law. Too stressful! It's a relief knowing that it's okay if I look my age, or even a little older. The man in my bed will always come back to it.
from hamlette2002 :
I would call you a sensible, responsible person. I'm trying to find out a little more about whether or not I can donate, as I had a two-unit blood transfusion myself (and you wanna talk about guilt? I OWE! I helped deplete the blood bank!) about 2 years ago. If I can donate, you bet I will!
from quietguy :
Thank you for your kind note. As for the women in my life: well, I've made some grievous errors, and have had horrible timing. I hope as you read more you'll have a better understanding of me. Thank you again... Q.G.
from funnypoops :
Oh my god woman, you're reading my mind! That's exactly how it is around my house!
from funnypoops :
The more I read of your diary, the better the schools sound in your parts. I'm sure that it's probably just a pocket of activities that happen to be around the same time, but it seems like there's almost always something interesting and extracurricular going on lol. It also sounds like you're pretty involved (and wanting to be) and I think that's awesome. Oh...kudos on even checking his bag at all...it's easy to forget that our kids may not always bring the most appropriate schtuff to keep them occupied.
from bonnylisbon :
Oh no! I'm looking forward to it, but I'm terribly nervous for some reason. I've gone to small shows and local venues, but never to a big concert. Also, I'm going with a girl I've know since I was twelve, but we don't really talk anymore, so I'm wondering if our interaction will be forced, you know? We'll see... wish me luck! (I'm the only jackass on the planet who needs good luck to enjoy herself at a concert.)
from hamlette2002 :
*gently places laurel-leaf crown on Sally's head and backs away, bowing and scraping humbly the whole time*
from funnypoops :
I'm bouncing up and down at the thought of another hellacious summer down the drain. I HATE summer too, and though our fall is quite short, I'd much rather be cold than roasting like a pig. Your cider sounds fantastic, I'm definately making some this year!
from hamlette2002 :
I just bought my first half gallon of cider for the season, too! I'm going to throw it in the crock pot with some mulling spices and pretend I'm somewhere that becomes something special in the fall!
from bonnylisbon :
By the way, I love Fall!!! Love love love it, it's my thing that always makes me happy. I'll try the cider thing, promise. Where the hell do you live? I want four seasons more then anything!
from bonnylisbon :
You with the compliments! You make me feel so... I don't know... fucking fantastic! I adore you, I really do. I can't tell you how much your words mean to me. I'll e-mail you soon Sally :)
from bonnylisbon :
Thank you so much for the beautiful note. I found it to be very comforting. I suppose I'm too sensitive and I tend to dwell on the sad part of things. I wish I could be as optimistic and insightful as you, hopefully it will come to me as I get a bit older. Mrs. Sallydallydo, you are truly amazing and inspirational, I adore being able to read your diary and hear from you, thanks again.
from bonnylisbon :
Oh you!!! You had to go and make me cry! I loved the entry on being a mother, it was fucking brilliant!! You are truly amazing and your children are incredibly lucky to have you as their "mama." So, now, tell me about being married. Was the first year a nightmare? Do you just end up getting used to eachother? Do you still feel all the silly great things that go along with being "in love?" You know, the butterflies, thinking about him when he's away, all that good stuff? What made you fall in love with him? How long have you known him? You are terribly interesting...
from hamlette2002 :
Okay, I admit it. I had to look up troglodyte. But now that I know what it means...LMAO!
from funnypoops :
Your entry made me want to call my mom and thank her. It's so easy to forget that not only do mothers give unconditionally, but that that is what they choose to do. After a year of (mostly) raising my friends daughter for her, I'd sworn off having children of my own. I don't know if I'll ever have any, but I have a feeling that if I do, what you've said will stick with me.
from hamlette2002 :
*wiping tears and blowing nose*....Well, that was unexpected! Motherhood is definitely a worthwhile commitment - but not one to be entered into lightly!
from bonnylisbon :
Also, I wanted to tell you that I've been reading your diary quite often, ever since you wrote me that lovely note. I have so many questions to ask you! Is motherhood all it's wrapped up to be? Don't you ever just want to be alone, away? Don't kids just need need need and you've gotta give give give, doesn't that ever feel so... I don't know, exhausting? Do you ever worry about your kids forgetting about you, as a person, as oppossed to you, as a mom? Sometimes I catch myself forgetting that my parents are people, not just my parents. That's not their soul job, you know? How awful that I sometimes forget they feel down, or depressed, or stressed, I sometimes forget about their life excluding myself and my brothers. They have jobs, friends. I feel like I've known complete strangers for 20 years? You know? Is that a concern of yours?
from bonnylisbon :
You get to see The Cramps??! Lux is a madman is he not? I hope you have a fantastic time. I'll check out that radio thing, sounds like good stuff.
from jbat :
Thanks! I needed that!
from hamlette2002 :
That's it - I'm moving to where you are! I've picked up some pretty fair deals at yard sales, but OMG! Land of milk and honey indeed!!!
from hamlette2002 :
Yeah, go Sally! I'm telling you, these PTA women are frightening sometimes.
from invisibledon :
thanks for the note - hope you are having a good day
from funnypoops :
You, my dear, are one hundred and seventy thousand percent right. Sure, if you put restrictions on your computer to guard your children from sites that you don't want them on it'll help. But, if you're relying solely on Cyber Nanny or any other number of programs to watch over your children every second they're online, and you fail to pop in and check on them once in awhile, they're bound to find a way around it, or the program will manage to let them in to any number of sites. To think that the entire time this woman was building an anti site, she could have been watching over her kids...would have saved time in my opinion.
from groovyguru :
Unfortunately, the "Texas Two Step" was in quotes. I wish it had referred to Mrs. Guru doing a victory dance. The sad thing is it only was a reference to my being tethered to the porcelain god. Oh boy...
from funnypoops :
First, thank you for putting me in your buddy list! It tickles me so :D Secondly, it's been quite some time since we took our SAT's, but I'm in the same category as you. My husband is a genius (an asshole, but a genius) but I scored higher on my tests. How strange is that?
from thedevlyn :
There you go, nice choice for the sitemeter image too.
from bonnylisbon :
Oh sallydallydo, the note you left was perhaps one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me. I just don't mean on this silly site, I mean in general. I sincerely thank you, it was very very kind of you, too kind in fact. I can only hope there are other humans like yourself out there.
from funnypoops :
OMG I laughed so hard at your "slime trail" entry. I feel so incredibly fortunate (in a kind of strange way) that I no longer have to deal with that kind of shit. Were you able to get it out of your mouth without requiring a blow torch?!
from hamlette2002 :
I go through several boxes of band-aids a year because my son feels an urgent need to prove his masculinity on an hourly basis!
from hamlette2002 :
Psychologist, sociologist...or a stalker! Woohoo! I agree, we all make our own decisions. While it's a little cliche' to say "Life is what you make of it," it's really true. Take the experiences, good and bad, and make them work for you instead of against you in the choices you make for yourself.
from hamlette2002 :
The one huge benefit of suddenly becoming a big sister at the age of 13 was seeing how fast children really do grow. My youngest sister is now 13, and I can't believe how the time has flown. It's definitely made me appreciate this time with my own kids more.
from thedevlyn :
Thank you very much for taking my surrvey, not all of mine will make you think quite as much, but your answers were great. Thanks again. Now to read your diary...
from hamlette2002 :
I am absoLUTELY stealing the name thing...it should be pretty funny!
from hamlette2002 :
If you'd like some help with the couponing, you might check out http://p212.ezboard.com/bcouponsnmore - I've been a member there for about a year, and they've taught me amazing things! I feed my family of 3 adults and two children on a budget of about $100/week, and we eat pretty healthy, for the most part. On paint-stripping: I refinished my dresser and armoire (with it's 3 layers of paint and one layer of lacquer and 40 years of crud), and instead of spraying the stripper on, I just poured it on and spread it around with something - I don't exactly remember what, but it worked...maybe newspaper? Anyhow, it seemed to go much faster than the spraying, and I stopped getting so many chemical burns!
from funnypoops :
I've been looking for someone who's on the South Beach Diet to tell me how well it works. I've heard it doesn't work as well as Atkins...but since I'm not on either, I can't speak from experience. Good luck on getting that cabinet finished. I still have several works in progress laying around that I'm trying to get the gumption to finish.
from funnypoops :
Hey, thanks for the tag on my diary :) I just read your latest entry and you have convinced me to NEVER try and strip my own furniture lol!
from groovyguru :
All I said was "Say I bought" not "I have bought" . . . I had to go back and look! Whew!
from hamlette2002 :
I hope you know just how important your role is. It's not easy being a stay-at-home mother, I know! I've been doing it for the last 4 years, and I still have another year before I'm willing to give it up. As a result, my kids have a lot of what you had (and I didn't). They have a home that we've been in since Mercedes was 2 and before Alex was born. They have two parents who manage (despite small disagreements) to put up a united front and have a working partnership. These are not things that are easy to do even IF one parent stays home. And it would be so much harder to provide if you weren't at home with your dirty floors and laundry!
from hamlette2002 :
I'm more than half convinced that the reasons I have problems with my right shoulder are my kids - I say "don't do that" and "you did that and now you're getting it" with that hand!
from jbat :
I have no idea if mine will ever LEAVE the whomp/dork stage, actually. I think it's some kind of hope he has but I don't expect the change to actually take. Beloved dork that he is.
from hamlette2002 :
Well, NOW you've done it. You've inspired me to mention one of my darling husband's less-endearing qualities...
from hamlette2002 :
Poor Sally! I'm one of the "blissfully unendowed" - maybe I should start shopping at Old Navy! LOL! You might want to try JC Penney on Saturdays, if you get the chance. They tend to carry clothes in colors that don't scream "teenaged cheerleader" in styles that don't scream "granny."
from hamlette2002 :
Way to go, Sally! The only thing better than having awesome friends is the ability to recognize how awesome they truly are. Sounds like she's just as lucky to have you for a friend.
from hamlette2002 :
*raising hand and squirming impatiently* Ooh, ooh, I know that Mom! I see her every year - she runs every little event at the elementary school, chairs the parent volunteer association, and only has 4 more years to do until she permanently moves on to junior high. She's the one that looks down her nose at the rest of us grunts when we offer to help run the cash register at Santa's Secret Shop, and turns down the handmade American Sign Language "I love you" ornaments that one of the other parents made as a "thank you" gift for all the volunteers. I hate that chick. And yeah, I wanna delve into her life, find out where she gets the pills, shoot her supplier, and watch her flop like a fish outta water.
from chubbychic :
Omgosh, you have the funniest sense of humor. Sounds like the kinda stuff my mom goes through at her school!!
from irisheyes70 :
I love you after four entries! I too am a closet goth disguised cleverly in my Old Navy perfect T's and denim skirts and mini van. Grrr! Bush DOES have a sense of humor, so don't count him out on election day. ;-) Was that the sound of you ripping me off your favorites list now? Teehee...
from hamlette2002 :
This entry gives my final decision about Kerry: http://hamlette2002.diaryland.com/ohfuckwell.html - I say the smart way to campaign is to find out when the majority of women will be PMSing, do one of those big campaign thingies, serve chocolate, and bash men. We outnumber them anyway, right?
from hamlette2002 :
What a pleasure to read! I got here by random-ating on the mamadiaries ring. Have you read The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster? It's a children's book, but if you appreciate Douglas Adams, you'll love it. Also, you might look into books by Robert Asprin. His MYTH series is awesome!
