from c4bl3fl4m3 :
No Mess! Nailpolish. My stuffed Tux penguin = Linux. Imation CD-Rs, Taco Bell Border Sauce Mild, a pack of plain M&Ms, the Apple logo on my computer, a Cult of the Dead Cow sticker on the computer, and EFF sticker on the computer, a Woodhull Freedom Foundation "Sexual Freedom" sticker on the computer, Insignia speakers, Cake Mate birthday candles, a Dynex keyboard, Staples envelopes, and oh dear God, don't make me go through my collection of con badges. The ones I can make out are AnimeUSA, Shmoocon, and a HOPE 5 armband. And that's it. Really.
from caralynne :
for awhile, my university had not one, but two buildings named after peter gzowski. good times.
from essentially :
Hey Dougbob, I hope you are well.
from ravengreen :
and, because a Tree is so well connected to Christ, and has nothing to do with paganism....we clearly CAN'T call it a holiday tree.
from benderl :
In response to the one below... um, that was kinda the point of the whole entry.
from ravengreen :
Flag *Pole Sitta. ...my bad.
from ravengreen :
hey dude, don't take this the wrong way, I get your point, but I have to point this out. I Harvey Danger's big song was "Flag Pool Sitta" which I know all the words to. "The Middle" is Jimmy Eats World. "Pretty Fly for a white guy" is The Offspring. "Allstar" is Smash Mouth. Personally, the fact that Harvey Danger only had one hit illustrates your point better.
from pip :
he's in our prayers. <3
from caralynne :
im so sorry to hear that! you have my best wishes and empathies. oh, doug!
from f-i-n :
hihihi
from pip :
hubbahubba.
from ripetomato :
Awe. Some.
from everwhat :
Hello there... I've started work on a desktop client for diaryland. I've only gotten started, but the source I have is open. I figure if I spread around word about the source code, maybe other people will do something with it (like write better clients than I could). It's in python. If you're interested, the code is at http://www.callingshotgun.net/projects.html Also, if you could post a word or two about it to the webring, that'd be awesome.
from chikis :
Funny post, Doug.
from marn :
Thank God <i>someone</i> is willing to step up to the plate and explain the homosexual/poligamist/cross-species agenda!
from boogityx2 :
"coming back to a newsgroup after a few years and wondering why there's nobody there" - yeah, that was AMMF for me a few months ago. PS I got the Mike Ford CD and so far it seems pretty good.
from caralynne :
happy one monthiversary, doug.
from ripetomato :
She likes rats and Monkey Island. Hell, *I* almost want to date her.
from pip :
dear doug, the village SUCKED. i am still in love with m. night, though, so do not say offensive things about him. <3<3<3<3+xoxoxo!
from benderl :
so, does the water-skiing happen before or after the drafting of the constitution?
from benderl :
I believe you were speaking to me when you hallucinated that. Ha.
from benderl :
I'm just a dark, weird bus ride away. One that I'm more than willing to take as many times as I need to. The end of the month will be here so soon. So. Damned. Soon. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.
from trumpzero :
I'm sorry you're hurting. You had such a wonderful time -- I'm sad that it had to come to an end. But you have the love and that's what counts. And besides -- I think she'll be back, don't you?
from shiitake :
I haven't been keeping up with these things with you, but, ick. I'm sorry. That can't be good.
from ripetomato :
Ever try that with your own name? It's really trippy, because it makes you start to feel as though you yourself are nonsensical. It doesn't matter how normal a name sounds, say it enough times and it becomes too weird for words.
from ripetomato :
In situations like these, I find that the word "pardon?" can be very useful.
from jcesar :
thank you. now I will start give 2 minutes for my reply.
from goodsandwich :
I'm so jealous you were anywhere near the TFSSPs!
from trumpzero :
This is Verdine. I have a temporary new diary with big news. Hope you'll visit.
from benderl :
meep! :) er. merf. yeah. and stuff. hi. oh, and yay. most definitely yay. all different kinds of fantastic yay.
from horvendile :
She was my beloved, beatific, batnose embryo, first :-)
from marn :
Awwwwwwwwwwww.
from ripetomato :
Merf Herder, eh? That's actually not too bad. Did you know James once called me his little "urine soaked idiot"? No, I wasn't soaked in urine at the time, it was totally random ... just to prove that anything sounds "cute" if you say it in that little baby voice. "Aww .. ish my widdle urine soaked idiot!". See?
from elbowweather :
Received free of charge. Not bought. But not stolen either. Legally obtained, with permission.
from ripetomato :
Hehe .. "grammer" ... "fasist" .. those were either deliberately clever, or two hilariously ironic mistakes. Perhaps we'll never know which.
from verdine :
Good lord. The Katrin. I was JUST thinking about that like the day before yesterday. Hey, last week I watched South Park and got drunk in one of the places here where I saw Fruvous. It was slightly surreal and not a little sad. Missed them, and you.
from pip :
snort snort
from verdine :
Welcome to the ranks of the Pajama People! I have a collection, myself. There's something so cozy and comforting about the right pair of jammies.
from shiitake :
I read IJ, a few years ago, when I was stuck in Seattle, in the rain, with a cold, for three weeks, with nothing else to do. If you can arrange those kinds of conditions for your trip through the book, I highly recommend it.
from verdine :
Compaq. Windows. Basics (stapler). ViewSonic (my monitor). KDS Visual Solutions (his monitor). Penguin (spine of book). A bill from Kaiser. Whew!
from sirilyan :
It's inconceivable you would have to ask.
from godmoney :
help me out: what does liking TPB mean???
from verdine :
I would give my eye teeth to be at that show. Knock 'em dead, baby!
from shiitake :
Unfortunately, I don't think there are any last-minute special western CO - TO airfares available, or I would. Remind me to put TO on my list of spots for my next vacation, though.
from leftieleah :
hello! I'd like to join your Improv diary ring! I tried to find your email address but couldn't, so I tried this, the next best thing! Well, I think it's the next best thing... ah well. Anyways, you said to tell you where I've done Improv before, and so I shall... I'm on the Junior Improv team at my school and I have a lot of fun and I love it! I don't know if that qualifies me or not... but I thought I'd try anyways! So... please let me join!!!
from sirilyan :
I wish I could, but I have nothing to say.
from elbowweather :
Oh, just UPDATE fergodsakes.
from sirilyan :
Great, now you've paralyzed me, because I can't write anything else until I answer those questions.
from elbowweather :
Thank you so much for posting that link today - just in time for me to go see him tomorrow! (Your next entry's gonna be the answers to my questions, right?)
from rabean :
I'm glad you're okay. I was thinking of you. *snugs*
from boogityx2 :
You can interview me too if you'd like.
from sirilyan :
Questions will be going out shortly, folks. Got a lot to do today.
from benderl :
Ooh! Ooh! Ask me questions!
from elbowweather :
Me, me! I wanna play! Now I'm scared of the questions you'll ask.
from verdine :
I like this meme! Q me!
from mnvnjnsn :
Ohh! Ooh! Am I interpreting this right? Would you interview *me?* I promise you can ask me how much I love Canadians...
from marn :
This would be the one where you went so far beyond what the term "geek" encompasses that we need to coin a new term for it.
from verdine :
But that's a good haircut! Okay, so the kiss-curl -- maybe not so much. But on the whole, thumbs-up to this coif!
from verdine :
What HAVE you let them do to your hair? Dyed it red again, I hope! That was cute.
from dharma333 :
I know people who know you, I think.
from sirilyan :
And yet Friendster says only two people who know people who know people I know like the band. Something's fishy here.
from dharma333 :
i would sing along too
from pip :
we need its light / we need its heat / we need its energy -- without the sun, without a doubt, thered be no you & me!! <3<3<3
from marn :
WAIT! I can make you feel even worse! Um, someone put that on one of my work out CD's so I also know all the words. Yes, now you know the words to music that people in their 50's listen to. Aren't I just a ray of sunshine?
from verdine :
Ah, yes, ANSI art -- the stuff of squinting and standing WAY back. You know what I miss? ANSI *porn*.
from botanologia :
I see you have started an improv ring. Finally! I was an active member of the Pittsburgh improv scene for four years and most of my college troupe now keeps in touch through diaryland. I will encourage them to join.
from verdine :
Happy birthday, my deario! Hope you love your new computer and this new year. Here's wishing you every joy and many happy returns of the day!
from marn :
http://lhostelaw.com/rk/0204rk14.htm -- when in doubt, ALWAYS go for the roadkill photo
from sirilyan :
You'll never have to scale, cut, or gut again.
from marn :
PLUS, it was made my WHAM-O and as far as I'm concerned, everything is better with an "o" in it somewhere. Combining both our criteria, the ultimate product would be the Super Bass-o-matic which was pitched by Dan Ackroyd on Saturday Night Live.
from sirilyan :
You know, I just don't get hung over. I wake up tired and thirsty, but that's it.
from marn :
Hope you remembered the mass quantities of water, which help blunt the hangover trauma ...
from verdine :
I think "vampire" is probably the last word I'd use to describe you. Mean ol' cigarette junkie!
from essentially :
Mom heard on NPR today something about how evil people said that using taxes to fund public schools goes against the right of the individual's choice of religion, because if they pay to send Buffy to private school they end up paying for public school anyway? Blah. Seems that the state of education's just like the US; they say the system's broken, and they say the best way to fix things is to stay and try to change it, not to jump ship? But oh, Canada...
from smartypants :
oh my goodness the kraft dinner pizza. I need to lie down for a while.
from elbowweather :
Macaroni and cheese pizza. Dude, so, so wrong. Like a Gardenburger is nothing but a bread sandwich, that pizza is a flat disc of starch topped with a starchy starch topping. And that's not even beginning to touch on my personal allergic-reaction-and-gastric-distress-induced aversion to the idea of cheez topped with cheese...I choose to forget that both beer and cookies cause a similar reaction in me - beer cookies just might prove the existence of the divine! Beer cookies for all!
from sirilyan :
Google is a fickle friend, is all I can say.
from marn :
Which only raises the question, of course, of how you actually KNEW about that recipe ....
from marn :
I hope one day I get to see you on stage.
from elbowweather :
My gut reaction is usually "Wonder where someone got firecrackers this time of year." People who dive as if they're going to get shot bother me. Drama queens.
from verdine :
You know something, babe? That was exactly, EXACTLY what I needed to hear today. You are loved. *hug*
from marn :
You probably heard my gasp of amazement at that insight from there.
from sirilyan :
Sweet! Accordion girls rule.
from snideblonde :
Go to grlscout.diaryland.com to see a pic of me playing the accordion and a lovely pic of scout as well.
from sirilyan :
Disease, pestilence, wangitude.
from marn :
Disease and pestilence! You've gotta love the headline possibilities--not to mention the tee-shirts. Quick, Doug, corner the market before it's too late!
from sirilyan :
E x a c t l y a s I p l a n n e d ! P e r f e c t .

from elbowweather :
You do know I've got my cell phone programmed to ring in that tune, right? But no, most of the time when I hear it, I don't think of you. Sorry.
from sirilyan :
Well, except tonight. Tonight is improv class.
from sirilyan :
I am there all the time.
from elbowweather :
"Going to McD's for mass" sounds as if you're <i>worshipping</i> fast food. Glad to hear you've gotten over that. You ever on #p any more? I must share with you a musical discovery that will Blow. Your. Mind.
from sirilyan :
Actually, that was me. Didn't I say?
from essentially :
The guy I talked to on Tech Support tonight sounded like you. Also, he told me my internet connection was "craptastic" and that he just needed a second to finish typing in all this "hoopla". Silly...
from waterstain :
i've never watched american idol. yes, i am the one. i'm not entirely sure whether this is something i should take pride in or something i should strive to conceal.
from sirilyan :
American Idol. (Or so I gather, from my admittedly skimpy reading of Chomsky's manufactured-consent theory.)
from waterstain :
in all my wavering from one side of the fence to the other, i was at my most certain anti-war stage right before it started. now as i watch the demonstrations, somewhere inside me is my inner seven year old, wishing to be a staunch supporter of the war effort if only to spite them. the question of the day is: what does one do, when one doesn't want one's name associated with either side?
from snideblonde :
It's finally spring, isn't it? When my theatre company visited Toronto in the middle of February we were wandering the streets with enormous backpacks. Maybe those people you're seeing aren't really homeless... Maybe they're just actors! We're not homeless, but most of us have very little money... does that help?
from captslack :
I think <a href="http://www.snowcrest.net/zepp/VRWC/clinton_haters.htm" title="The Head Weasel in Charge.">Bryan Zepp Jamieson</a> said it best: <blockquote>Maybe it's good that Clinton really isn't as nasty and vindictive as them. After all, he could have gotten rid of Congress several years ago by simply proposing a plan whereby it would be illegal for Congressmen to stampede off a cliff.</blockquote> Or maybe it was <a href="http://www.mnftiu.cc/mnftiu.cc/war13.html" title="get your war on | page thirteen">David Rees</a> who said it best: <tt>If I was Saddam Hussein, I'd pay a human rights organization to draft an International Declaration to Have My Ass Overthrown! Cause you know the US wouldn't go along with it!</tt>
from sirilyan :
Woot! All hail the return of Cosmic Amanda!
from shlippy :
I seem to have misplaced my monkeys! (I've always wanted to be able to say that...) Anyway, if I can't find one to send you soon, I'll just make one. And hey, I updated!
from sirilyan :
Why? She has no mouth. It's not like she can say anything.
from marn :
Stop dissin' Hello Kitty!
from daysuit :
Just reading your entry about the protest at Dundas Square. I thought the same thing when I went to a previous protest at Nathan Phillips square... why on earth does being against a war in Iraq mean that I have to also be against capitalism, be adamantly pro-union, etc, etc, etc. Can't we protest one thing at a time ferchristsakes? FOCUS, people!
from marn :
Tee hee. I had the same experience. I bought all this home exercise equipment telling myself that I would use it and save a buttload of money in gym membership fees. I used it maybe a month and then slid into complete slackerhood. Guilt is a wonderful thing.
from marn :
Yes, exactly.
from sirilyan :
Further note to self: email is your friend, and you shouldn't neglect your friends.
from sirilyan :
Note to self: "I left the girl there. Why are you still carrying her?"
from sirilyan :
Now, I'm not saying you're wrong, but you're just not right, Marn.
from marn :
*Sputter* *Indignation* You realize you have tapped into my deep, deep gym guilt, eh? I would use a Canuckistani gym if I could, but the sad truth is that the nearest is a 50 minute drive from me. My little Vermont gym is 15 minutes. *Wags finger*. Before you judge me, walk a mile in my gym sneakers. Oh, wait. Maybe you don't want to be doing that, at least not until I change the Odour Eaters ...
from sirilyan :
They'll see what I'm really made of? That's exactly what I'm worried about.
from verdine :
I see an attractive young man with a good career and a good heart who loves music, travel, learning to cook, and his new home in the Big City. He's brilliant, wickedly funny, loves to sing, knows how to take joy where he finds it, and makes a hell of a good friend. Don't despair, dear one. That suit can't hide you indefinately. Those with the right kind of vision can see what you're really made of.
from shiitake :
har har! (re: flaming knives)
from sirilyan :
The movie was... it was good, but it was not the Transcendent Experience the otaku had promised. I did not leave, as some apparently did, trembling with anger that Disney did not force every theater in North America at gunpoint to show this movie eight times a day. Maybe I'll write about why I haven't come over to the anime side of the force. And yes, yes! More Fran and mont-blanc! Now!
from lunasoul :
So how was the movie? Got a yen for any more Japanese snacks?
from marn :
The thought of you holding that Korea sign will keep me giggling all night.
from sirilyan :
I ain't 'fraid of no Sentinels. (God, all my credibility just went up in a bamf of smoke.)
from conversegirl :
Rusted Root has saved me on occasion...but then so have the X-Men and the Ghostbusters...so...<cough>... Anyway, your diary is cool. =)
from elbowweather :
Dougbob, what the HELL? You should know that way lies madness. Madness, I tell you! You don't need me to remind you.
from tesselene :
Dear, you do worry me. ;-)
from verdine :
More funny for smile; but Danger Excitement!
from marn :
We Canuckistanis are raised to be suspicious of praise, eh. Not that we don't need it, we just don't quite know what to do with it. It's good to know you're still alive and happy. You had me worried, you know. Bastard.
from pip :
oh, i KNOOOOOOOOOOOW.
from pip :
im still missin' it, jerk. xoxoxx.
from marn :
Doug, are you still alive or what?
from marn :
Doug, are you still alive or what?
from verdine :
I can no longer say, "I have this friend up in Saskatoon..." How am I going to find an excuse to say "Saskatoon" now? Toronto, Toronto! Your kinda town!
from shiitake :
huzzah! Glad someone managed to escape their small surroundings, even if it wasn't me...
from marn :
YAYYYYYYYYYY.
from sirilyan :
Amigo's Cantina, Saskatoon. Mexican food and cheap beer.
from caralynne :
did you hear dannys drinking game story in toronto? i heard he told it there. i heard it when i travelled all the way to wakefield, que, to see him.
from jillcat42 :
Speaking of music bringing people together, expect to see me at Lee's Palace on November the 11th to see the musical stylings of one Mr. Daniel Bernstein.
from sirilyan :
Tasha, thy name is supportive. (And no, I didn't ride the SeaBus this time.)
from pip :
but its goddamn NICKELBACK, doug.
from shiitake :
But did you ride the Seabus?
from marn :
Even scarier? It all made perfect sense to me.
from elbowweather :
I used to see the northern lights all the time in ND. I've seen them at least once here in Colorado, too (though not this time of year, of course).
from verdine :
Do you know what you're doing? Do we ever, when we take a great leap into the barely-known? It's only after that we know it, when it's done and we realize it was the perfect thing to do. Trust yourself.
from marn :
The adventure begins. Yowza.
from almostnormal :
Good luck to you. I am crossing my fingers and wishing you the best. The beauty of the internet is that I don't have to say "keep in touch" =)
from marn :
DOUBLE MY MONEY BACK!!!! Yayyyyyyyyyy. Oh. Wait ....
from sirilyan :
PS2. I bought it because I needed a DVD player, and wanted a game console, and this satisfied both.
from demosthenese :
Good job; GTA3 is like that. There's enough random elements that keeping on at a mission will usually eventually result in something breaking your way. Incidentally, PS2 or PC?
from sirilyan :
Ah, I get it now. Helped that I came up the hill from St. Mark's instead of trying to go by the highway this time.
from sirilyan :
Whenever I get close to Salvatore's mansion, the two trucks that are blocking the entrance move out to meet me, and get me trapped in a corner. I'll just have to keep at it, I guess; I thought that the bank robbery wasn't achievable either.
from demosthenese :
Ok, here's a tip for that GTA3 mission: When you get all three people into the limo, head for the mansion. When you get there, there'll be two of those triad trucks blocking it, but if you look to the right of those trucks, there'll be a hole where you can get your limo through. Take it through, go along the path, and into the garage. Or, y'know, there's this "Gamefaqs" site that I've heard about. Might want to give it a try. ;)
from sirilyan :
Nor have I. I just hang on and try to figure it out as it moves.
from butimba :
Your diary is impressively random. I haven't got a clue what's going on. Hurrah!
from sirilyan :
Pity, don't hate.
from almostnormal :
Edmonton...blah humbug...
from sirilyan :
Yep. When the question is "Who's on the bleeding edge?", the answer is always "Those geeks at the Moxy Fruvous show."
from verdine :
Yes, but we started that trend, didn't we? Me and you and the boys? Always a favorite memory.
from astronautm :
Very glad i stumbled across your diary. I look forward to catching up on past entries when i am not so knackered. Regards, a.m
from almostnormal :
I cannot believe you didn't reference more Frank from Trading Spaces. He is my personal hero...who else could make vines out of electrical wire and some paint? He is a god. Actually...my whole life path is based solely on reruns of Trading Spaces.
from tygerchild :
Adore your "Everything I Needed To Learn I Learned by Watching TLC". But you forgot that the day you have your baby is the most wonderful day ever. Screw weddings and makeovers. Hee.
from almostnormal :
You know...it's funny how in about 30 years the definition of "classic rock" hasn't changed. In every summer school, and every sidewalk sale, it LIVES!
from sirilyan :
*I* have my own damn music. It's the idiots at the sidewalk sale who are cramming your decrepit music down my young, supple throat.
from marn :
It always amazes me when you zygotes start quoting lyrics from when I was a zygote. Stop it. Get your own damn music.
from sirilyan :
I promise that I will do so! It's just a matter of finding the time...
from verdine :
This is from way back, but -- I want you to know that, although I have never tried your Sweet Tomato Fry recipe, I occasionally have a craving for it. You should design more recipes.
from almostnormal :
Amazing entry. It made me feel chills up and down my spine. Because you know, I have to disagree...I AM unique....JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! (hee hee hee)
from sirilyan :
Thanks, y'all!
from paper-rose :
Happy (belated) Birthday!
from rabean :
Happy birthday, Doug! I guess I just really like older men. *grin* ;)
from pip :
happy birthday, my darling, my dearest. xo.
from marn :
Happy Birthday. I was just about to say you don't LOOK a day over 26.
from sirilyan :
I think I love you, Jill.
from jillcat42 :
Because it's your wish again to be back in Michigan. Duh.
from sirilyan :
It's not for the finishing, it's for the having.
from yttralite :
I once drew a comic which concerned "Books You'll Read On The Bus To Impress People, But You'll Never Actually Finish." Number one answer? Godel, Escher Bach.
from marn :
*snort*
from almostnormal :
I actually had a Titanium card once. It was a *secured* card. I had to put down a $50 deposit for it....how not classy ;-)
from sirilyan :
"Very Informative Ranting." Finally, I have something to put on my business cards!
from grlscout :
very informative ranting, I feel I am definately a better person having hung around your journal for awhile, soaked up the atmosphere and just generally bu osmosis. I'll keep checking back.
from verdine :
Testify, my brother. You get all kindsa "amen" from this Loyal Reader.
from sirilyan :
(Clarification: Round off the results from each day, I mean. So you go 30, 35, can't deliver to .5 of a house so you round 37.5 to 38, 39, can't deliver to .5 of a house so you round to 40, and then you're stuck at 40.)
from sirilyan :
Well, since you asked... it's an infinite series. If you don't round off, it goes (20, 30, 35, 37.5, 38.75, 39.375...) forever, getting closer and closer to 40 but never arriving. If you prefer to round off on the grounds that you can't deliver milk to .375 of a house, it goes (20, 30, 35, 38, 39, 40, 40, 40...) forever. Either way, he'll never get to 60.
from apollocowboy :
It is the fourth day, right? The Giant must have been an awful teacher.
from marn :
Math dreams? You have MATH DREAMS? Oh man.
from sirilyan :
Go for it.
from elbowweather :
I'm sure "Mefiez-vous" doesn't really mean "Post this to MetaFilter!", but can I pretend it does anyway?
from sirilyan :
Thank you, thank you (and please, tip your waitress). I've got a few pieces of the comedy in the mill right now, and I might send one of them over to the TeeVee crew and see if they bite. As for musicals, anyone who's heard me sing will know that the music and the me, they are not the best of friends.
from tygerchild :
Loving your site. And you've written for TeeVee! I always get excited when I see that it's been updated on DamnHellAssKings. Looking forward to reading more.
from snideblonde :
i know that you're probably being an ironic MOFO, but I think you SHOULD write a brilliant new musical. i just finished a four month tour of an entirely sung, incredibly beautiful, entirely sung 90 minute musical, no spoken words that was one of the most engaging, profound and beautiful pieces I've ever performed. AND, normally, I turn up my button nose at musicals (although I sing) because I think they're cheese. If you're serious, though, power to you, and I'll send you my resume. Hitchcock blonde aka Snide blonde
from almostnormal :
It must be difficult to bear the responsibility of being so close to perfection. *hugs and kisses*
from sirilyan :
Well, since you asked... it was "You're a lousy tree surgeon."
from verdine :
You mean you're not going to tell us what your theme sentence was in the dream?
from almostnormal :
Thank you for the happy sniffly teary eyes this afternoon when I read your entry before leaving for work. I needed that as well. *big hugs* I really hope to talk again soon.
from marn :
Yeah, but the problem is these are 'Mericans. Remember, in Canada women didn't get into that kind of thing until their university years, eh. So don't feel those science fair years were wasted, 'kay?
from sirilyan :
I try to educate as well as entertain.
from marn :
I'm so glad you learn things so I don't have to, eh.
from pip :
lambs = SO much cuter than cows. we're going to have to have a talk about this, doug. you know what THAT means.
from almostnormal :
You forgot one political leaning (Yes I know I'm a day late...I'm sorry)... If you are Canadian, you are immediately defaulted to being a socialist *phbbbttt*
from elerih :
come cook for me?
from sirilyan :
Odd. It should still be there.
from decoder :
Hey, what happened to that dream entry? I thought it was pretty cool. I promise I will not try to interpret it for you.
from almostnormal :
*grin* your inner socialist?
from sirilyan :
You know what's sad? I can see that grid now and how I would graph it.
from ammonite :
i had a dream last night in which you had coded a complicated representation of diaryland popularity in a grid format. i was a bit pissed i didn't rank, but you know, i didn't expect otherwise. it was a neat piece of work, though. good job!
from sirilyan :
The people have spoken. Gimme a bit of time to set it up.
from shiitake :
Food yes!
from tesselene :
I want to see a food diary! Give me more good ideas to feed my family...
from pip :
you could talk about your shoelace tying adventures & i'd be interested.
from ammonite :
digimon, digital monsters, digimon are the champions! digimon, digital monsters, digimon are the champions! change into digital monsters - to save the digimon world! digimon, digital monsters, digimon are the CHAMPIONS!
from angstisfun :
ok. so . i read 3 and a half of your entries and your profile. that's it. so i'm sorry if this is forward, but will you be my best friend? no? ok. well, deranged stalker would be good enough for me...
from decoder :
Dammit Doug, plug your lamp into a powerstrip, put the powerstrip within reach of your bed so you can switch it off without getting up, and get yourself a good night's sleep.
from ammonite :
i'm so glad i'm not the only one who hates bobby flay. i was starting to feel like an outcast.
from ammonite :
freebsd rules.
from sirilyan :
No cookie recipes yet. Check with cooking.com - that's where I found the one I use right now, and it's a good base for a whole bunch of other stuff.
from almostnormal :
I cared about what Kennedy thought, and the tomato fry sounds divine. But...what about the cookies? Where are the cookies????
from verdine :
That sounds pretty yummy! You could try it with rice, too, instead of the pasta. Or chicken instead of beef. And I wonder if a tiny pinch of hot pepper wouldn't go well in it, too!
from snidegrrl :
in re: sweet tomato fry there is only one thing missing from this: garlic! soy might be good, but what i'd really like to try with it would be garlic.
from jillcat42 :
I love you, Doug Sheppard. Once again you have written a stirring and innovative piece that shows us how the world truly should be. Thank you. Oh yeah, and love Big Brother. ;) -Jtac
from essentially :
New commercials? But I love eighties commercials!
from pip :
doug -- NO ONE ever gave a damn about what Kennedy thought. NO ONE.
from sirilyan :
I'd forgotten about the cancer rates. Oh my yes, cancer rates. Go off and google the phrase "sydney tar ponds" to see yet another happy side effect of industrial living...
from shiitake :
Crap, that sounds like the story of where I grew up (and now live), only it was uranium/oil shale instead of coal. But it still fucks with the people, whatever the substance. Weird relationships with the land, alarmingly high cancer rates, resentment towards anyone or anything that might suggest that such an industry could be a bad thing. But I'm sure you know the story...
from tesselene :
I'm speechless, tear-filled, and moved. Thank you.
from sirilyan :
I'll tell you, later.
from greylady :
mmm... meteors in canada. what's wrong with slow island life, though?
from jillcat42 :
Nice entry! Dan and I went out to the balcony of his suite and watched them, too. I had about the same reaction you did to the "light pollution." And, just like you, I saw one, and then another. It was really, really beautiful. It was also really, really cold...though not as cold as it's "supposed" to be in the middle of November. Anyway...take care, hon! -Jtac
from taintedfate :
i'm in the suburbs and i know what you mean about light pollution. but on top of it ... fog. ARGH! nevertheless i was a trooper, just like you ... neck cocked back, eyes on the one patch of sky directly overhead that the rising fog had not yet occluded, and ... behold! i was rewarded too. too foggy to see the whole show, but at least the brighter, nearer ones flew by spectacularly, and i saw enough of them to use up almost all my wishes. ;-)
from decoder :
My sister knew this guy who used to be a lifeguard. One day a kid approached him and pointed to a man, a woman and another man together in the pool. "Hey mister," said the child. "They're doin' the train." The lifeguard looked, and sure enough, the kid was right.
from sirilyan :
The train... it's weird, for me. I'll probably write about my feelings toward trains later.
from johnpowers :
I love taking the train over planes. Always have preferred it.
from kuinileti :
i was lookin' for some lovin' tonight but you weren't around! quel shame.
from trinity63 :
Siri -- I will be thinking about you, let us know when you get on the ground safe and sound okay? Love, Trin
from sirilyan :
Outlook hazy. Ask again later.
from elerih :
Red hair? and *when* do I get a picture, hmmm????
from elerih :
Thanks. El
from pip :
you are always my favourite diarylander. always.
from verdine :
Bless your sweet maple heart, Doug. I swear I'm gonna love you forever. :-) *hug*
from sirilyan :
I think I'm still better off being a weeknight drinker than a Nyquil driver...
from verdine :
Don't worry, baby. Worry when you can no longer write your own name, like me!
from shiitake :
Fellow weeknight drinker!
from sirilyan :
I want to know what you're thinking. There are some things you can't hide. I want to know what you're feeling. Tell me what's on your mind.
