from mugwhump :
Thank you for the note. I will hold a cereal box high in the air in honour of you! Are you back at D-land for a while???
from mugwhump :
Thank you. Your note was much appreciated. :-)
from mugwhump :
Your Back!!!! Your Locked :-( Thanks for the note. It's good to know you're still out there.
from bitbybit :
these days i'm only on the computer at all on random days at random times, so, i was going to ask for the password then, but i figured that was too forward, so when i came back online, whatever day that was, i could've sworn that i left a note at least, so thats what that was all about. and... this note was pretty pointless too. oh well.
from bitbybit :
and then of course i'm going to retract my statement because i didn't see it was unlocked when i wrote that. my timing is amazing.
from bitbybit :
im saddened that you locked your diary and havent updated. i wish i knew why. im way too curious for my own good.
from revisions :
the arcade fire has a song about lies...rebellion (lies). completely catchy, "everytime you close your eyes, lies, lies."
from bitbybit :
once again, just leaving you a note to declare your genius. Your last few entries... awesome. BTW, that annotated bibliography entry sounded exactly like something i would do.
from bitbybit :
and, the first time i used the lyrics in a title (now that i think about it, was from a different diary... whoops...), i actually had to look it up. Sont Les Mots Qui Vont Tres Bien Ensemble... Tres Bien Ensemble. And the best part was, when i looked up what they meant, i realized, its the first lyrics Paul sings: "These are words which go together well."
from bitbybit :
thanks for giving me a note! i felt special! :) and, i know what you mean about getting scared of the dead end. My friend Amanda is a night person, so after work (which for me is around 1am), we decided to go to IHOP. we were talking, and somehow, something she said reminded me of The Ring (which scared the pants off of me), so we ended up talking about a ton of scary things... things that scared us and stuff. For like two hours. yeah. So, at like 3am, when i told my mom i'd be home, i was not moving an inch in fear of some crazy person trying to rape me as i was leaving IHOP. So... i tiptoed in at 5am, mom totally flipped out, and there really wasn't anything to be scared about... because... yeah. nothing happened. Good times...
from bumpercar :
library school. that's where i belong. working in libraries gives you such good stories-- but some advice. if you can help it, don't date the patrons. thats just trouble.
from mugwhump :
Instead of Lard you could use vegetable shortening. Otherwise - you're hooped!
from mugwhump :
You could never be ugly, and if anyone thought you were because of the way you looked .... WELL .... just send them to me - I'll give them what for!! Have fun in Chicago - when you do get there. :-)
from brideof7less :
Digging the new layout!
from bitbybit :
i think the great thing about your diary is your ability write about something so small as you feeding squirrels, or how you were six cents short at the post office, whereas most people see those things as every-day non-events. i kind of strive to write about stuff like that, but my memory kind of stops that from happening.
from bitbybit :
hi, i've been a long time reader, finally getting the courage to leave a note. but i just want to let you know that im ALWAYS excited whenever you update. your updates never disappoint. :) Anyway, if the post office is anything like my job, then six cents is not a big deal. sometimes if a customer is short like a dime, i'll even fetch it out of my own pocket, so... six cents short isn't huge.
from starke- :
I am reading through your archives (I'm on Oct 03) and I have never, ever heard of Ted Leo before. But now LAUNCHcast has decided to play it on my radio station, as I'm reading your diary. Weird, but fortunate.
from fourbysix :
You might not have fun with the packing and the moving, but have fun with your new place when everything's all laid out and decorated and 'homelified' :)
from mugwhump :
I have never heard of peanut butter filled pretzels! How intrigueing . . . Glad to hear you've enjoyed Canada's "ketchup" flavoured snack food. Funny how you think some foods are universal - like Smarties. Cheers - LJ
from fourbysix :
I've never been fond of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Somehow as a kid, I found the idea of mixing mint ice-cream with chocolate chips really disturbing. Something about the colors... It -is- just so drab.
from mugwhump :
A good site for reasonable recipes is www.kraftfoods.com There is an option where you put in key ingredients you have or want and it spits out recipes that are like minded. It will, of course, tell you you must have 'XYZ Kraft' products, but I usually substitute. Check it out and let me know what you think. Cheers and happy cooking - LJ
from dylanwashere :
The tuffest lib. clerk on the block! Cool! You made me smile.
from oh-sweet-pea :
well if i do ever find a bag i'll buy 2 and mail you one!
from parlance :
The-not-so-ordinary.
from exitfish :
thanks.
from dylanwashere :
I did take a look at his latest one, but I couldn't even tell you title of Auster's latest. It was kind of strange and awful hard to get in to. My friend at work says leviathon (which I doubt I spelled right) is the one to read. She liked those you mentioned as well. Thanks for the review on Paul Auster.
from dylanwashere :
Cool facts about Detroit. & I just noticed your a Paul Auster fan, I see his books at the library, but I haven't checked out any yet. Which book is your favorite?
from dylanwashere :
lol..I've never heard that one before.
from dylanwashere :
Hey, I like your user-name and you're so friendly to read. Thanks for being here.
from rhyme :
hehe. no, i'm just.. allergic to them. don't ask, it's weird and obnoxious.
from ienjoycorks :
what a relief
from ienjoycorks :
what the h?!
from meesh03 :
wow. I will read about your "ordinary" life whenever I can. I am most intrigued! I'm new to Diaryland..So if you ever read my info/diary please pardon the unoriginal template! take it easy!
from gojirashei :
Hello, I just stumbled upon your online diary after a brief spell of bored searching (we both like the Dismemberment Plan), and I wanted to say, a) it's quite fun, and b) "Quantum" is indeed an excellent name for a toothbrush. Personally, I like to call my toothbrush "Skip." Makes brushing a lot more fun if you're better acquainted, I think. Okay, that's about it, have a good day.
from rhyme :
we should write to congress. "you know, a far better deterrent to unsafe driving would be..."
from guythatsits :
You are extremely funny and interesting, i stayed up till 6 in the morning reading your book of thoughts. Tata - Bryan
from rhyme :
oh, and i seem to start wearing wintery things at, oh, sixty or sixty-five. but i live in florida, so i may be a bad person to listen to. maybe.
from rhyme :
why hello, thank you for noting me! and stuff! rambling is fun. i think i might feel vaguely guilty about having all of the books if there weren't, oh, thirty or forty topics to pick from, and twenty people in the class. if anyone asks where all the gay books are i will put my hands in my pocket and whistle. if i only i knew how to whistle.
from faux-real :
I need an e-mail addy for your super-secret password to get your into the Honeycomb Hideout!
from laura-jane :
I just found you and am smitten..!
from the-magus :
Okay, first off, I hate not knowing the date of note-signage (I'd do guestbook signage, but I've apparently signed too many (ie: 1) ion the last twelve hours). So, Aug. 28, 2003. The point of this is that I get a great big giant thrill at the 59,000 year scenario with Mars. I mean, there were a large number of cave-folk who saw a bright star in the sky. That -has- to have had an effect on their theo/mytho/politico-logy. The worst part? During our black out, I completely didn't even bother looking up (two years of big city living?). I am -so- pissed off at myself.
from brideof7less :
Your diary is really entertaining. I added you to my favorites, hope you don't mind. Good taste in music too. I love Built to Spill and The Decemberists.
from thisisjohn :
I dont usually like diaries, but... yours is interesting. You listen to good music, and you identify bugs? neat diary. -john
from life-like :
if you have the opportunity [and i use that word lightly] to actually live in iowa, particularly one southeastern city that boasts more than 9 dairy queens in town... then the only thing more sad than ashton kutcher acting as the voice of the midwest, is having to hear the same story from everyone you ever meet that begins with: "i went to highschool with ashton!" it put us on the map. yay team.
from the-magus :
I just voted in my first heterosexist competition. Other than elections. I darn well better get some stories if she wins.
from qtkt2992 :
Kool diary. I like the layout for some reason....i geuss it's because of the simple-ness yet cool-ness. That sounded strange. Anyway, i like your diary a lot. :)
from faux-real :
I totally thought I saw that lesiban banner.. but I glanced right as I had clicked elsewhere, so I figured mine eyes had tricked me. Thanks for stealing away my self-doubt!
from the-magus :
For some reason, 20 hours is too short a time between guestbook signings, so here's what I tried to write:...don't mean to pester you, but you forgot the footnote in your last entry, unless the asterisk next to "bottle of gin" was for decoration. In which case, it's pretty.
from faux-real :
How exactly did you get plagarized upon by this LJ gal? How did you find out? The entries are deleted now unfortunately, so I've missed out on the hilarity.
from indie-snob :
maybe you should find a way to block me or something... but nonetheless, I have a review for the new Mogwai album up. enjoy.
from indie-snob :
and i return agani to tell you about the faint show i saw with enon. enjoy!
from indie-snob :
hello there. i just reviewed a flaming lips show i saw and thought you may want to check it out... thanks a lot!
from mrbelvedere :

The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested.
