So Wenchie...you didn't join Michael, did you? Where ya been, kid?
from scullerymaid :
Yeah...I've been looking for a new template, I just haven't found one I like yet. Or maybe I'm plain lazy. I feel very negligent of my diary lately
from scullerymaid :
Bonjour! Creo que es muy intersante que tu hablas frances. Je ne parle pas le francais...solamente espanol y ingles! But I take French classes and Rosetta is def improving my vocab. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for the comments and for the add. And yes, being a fag hag is where it's at! (Most of the time anyway :-D)

from twoturtles :
I agree with you and that's how I can see where most people wouldn't be as warm and fuzzy with the new look as I am. My favorite colors are black and red (orange, as it appears to you) so it works out well for me. If I saw orange, I probably wouldn't like it as much. I'm not one of those depressed goth types, it's just my personal taste. But I agree with you. Diaryland has always been on the whimsical side so it could be strange to be writing in a diary on a template that is so serious. If we were given choices of templates to use, I would have probably chosen this one anyway.
from chuzzlewit :
Look, that's fine. You're right. You win. If it's any consolation, I'm sorry I was so rude.
from chuzzlewit :
Sorry. I keep on getting personal. That 'emotional and heated' comment was out of line. My apologies.
from chuzzlewit :
I disagree, your analogy is still not right. Okay, so you pay for your pages, not for the other parts of diaryland. So we can't say that it would be like somebody coming along and painting your car would compare. It would be like somebody coming along and painting the street, or the busstop, or the town house. The parts of Diaryland that have changed could compare to the Public places in a street, so, in that case, the council has the right to change that. Although, yes, if enough people complain (like they have in diaryland about the new layout) then the council will listen to that and change it back. However, whatever a person does with their personal property, ie. your pages, has not changed. Actually, I don't think this has much to do with logic, by the way, you still haven't explained what you mean. To me, it sounds like you are talking about preferences, personal tastes. Diaryland does still work, for me I think it's a good design. Yeah, I learnt html online too. I also did it at college. I think this fits with what I learned. It may not match what you learned, but that's a preference, not logic. I don't think you're being very logical at all, more emotional and heated. Actually, I'm enjoying this argument, so keep leaving those notes. ;)
from chuzzlewit :
What's this logic problem I have going on? You never explained it properly. I just don't find black, sorry, 'grey' that impersonal. Note: I joined DiaryLand when it had a childish layout too, because it's a place to write in, not because of the way it looks. And it's still a place I can write, the way it looks doesn't interfere with that. Just that now I like the look of it. How are grey or black less personal than any other colour? You yourself say most of your wardrobe is grey, so? You can obviously look at yourself in the mirror wearing all that black and grey, why not on a screen? My point being, the functionality of DiaryLand is exactly the same as it ever was. The fact that I thought it looked like crap before didn't stop me from using it. It didn't bother me. So, why should it bother you now? The fact that it would bother people that much that they'd swear about it is quit puzzling. It's very superficial. See, I think THAT is immature, to be so het up by a change in the looks that you'd get upset when somebody else actually likes that change. I disagree, I don't think it's like buying a house on a street, and then having the city come in and paint the exterior of every house, the road, and all the trees tones of flat grey. I don't think it's like that at all. It's somebody elses site. They own it, I don't. I'm just using their service, and for free. See, so it would be like being a squatter, almost. If you want to use that analogy. Anyway, you were offended by 'big ears'? Fair enough. No more 'name calling' then. Just remember that not everybody is going to agree with you. We aren't all sheep.
from chuzzlewit :
By the way, thanks, I really enjoyed that.
from chuzzlewit :
Okay. Cool. Though since when does choosing a simple black design suddenly make it corporate? Secondly, what's wrong with "stockworld"? If there were such a thing. The point of diaryland is that people can do whatever design they want, even if that may appear to you to be 'corporate' which you seem to frown on, for unknown reasons. Thirdly, why the need to trawl through people's entries for the last four hours? Got nobody in your life? Or is it just so you can leave scathing little remarks that reflect your remarkable ability to jump to conclusions. You read one of my entries and you have me pegged already, don't you? Fourthly, since when does Wenchy Baby speak for "all"? Lastly, I've been using Diaryland since '99 and have seen various very plain black diary styles, and read rather a few diaries where people write about the corporate world. I think Diaryland looks grown up because they got rid of those old childish drawings, the little flowers and quirky little animal faces. I still think it does. Cheers Big Ears.
from wench77 :
Nothing wrong with corporate if one is doing something corporate. But this is not called "Stockworld", it is diaryland, and people write diaries. I suppose a rare few write corporate diaries, but frankly, I have been monitoring the responses on the "recent public entries" for the past four hours, and have yet to see anyone who has chosen a "corporate" look for their personal diary. And, yes, to each their own, but this isn't "each" it is "all". cheers.
from chuzzlewit :
What's wrong with corporate? Actually, I just switched to the new diaryland template, that's why my diary looks so similar. It used to be bright orange. I may not be 'almost 45', but I am 30 and that makes me not a spring chicken anymore. I don't find diaryland's new style corporate. I find it chic and minimalist. Anyway, each to their own.
from dangerspouse :
WENCHIE!! Hey babe, I'm so glad you popped in and took the time to leave me a note! Just like old times when we were both regular writers and ocassional lovers. Ahhh, good times. Hey, drop me a e-mail, will ya? I'd really like to hear how you're doing. xoxoxox

Thanks for your note. Believe me, meds were a last resort! I've tried everything else! Like the sounds cd! But it scared him! Even after playing it every day for 3 months! I had to do something as everytime there are fireworks he wets himself! He runs up and down stairs, jumps up and down at windowsills, and I am so worried he's going to cause himself an injury! He doesn't like storms either, but fireworks are sooo much worse! As for romance, here's hoping you and I both get lucky soon!! I'm sure we both deserve it!!
from pattymelt :
you're tagged! read me!
from im2evil4u :
It is the first night of the New Deal with myself, allow me the time to get used to it would you. I'm only an hour late. Tomorrow, though, I am going to bed at midnight, I swear.
from im2evil4u :
Awww, well thank for that. LOL. But do my videos really suck?
from im2evil4u :
What I'm saying is, by the time I get home, clean, have dinner and spend quality time with my husband it is nearing midnight. I have been forcing myself to stay up later than I should, in order to post "a quick and witty read" for everyone, and then have difficutly getting up the next morning. All I'm saying is, that I need to get more sleep (the age thing was a joke) -- one cannot live on six hours of sleep.
from cocksucker69 :
Dang girl! Dang! Thanks so much for your rant and for setting me "straight" *teehee* about adoption. Wasn't sure what to make of the rant from the "ex-gay" but it was rather entertaining nonetheless....
from hissandtell :
Dayem - I can't find my way into your comments section today! What a shame you can't get some really small cows to live in your really small cow paddock - and maybe even some teensy little cowboys, too. And that film about the Stevies looks really interesting, although I just checked and it seems to be available in Australia only in region 1 format at the moment. I shall wait... Love, R xxx
from ava-reborn :
Thanks for your recipe! Much appreciated! I'm sorry you're feeling so low! *hugs*
from im2evil4u :
Well, thanks for trying. I'm baffled that no one has commented on this atrocity. I only hope that I get the word out to as many people as I possibly can. Again, I ask you Ė let me know when you need a tenant up there in Canada because I have just about had it with this country.
from breezip :
Heya Wench - long time no! Nice to hear from you. Yeah, Charlie's a great writer! It's funny, I's gonna write you too, 'cause I've been re-reading "Crotte" and it's fricking brilliant, you know? So funny, brave, true. Too bad you weren't out here for APE this year!
from ava-reborn :
Thank you so much for your note lovely! I'm like you, my dog licks my face, and my cats sleep with me! They're probably cleaner than most humans I know!! Jason doesn't accept he has a problem. He thinks it's me with the problem! I really do love him, so I'll accept whatever compromise we can reach! I've heard of relationships, even marriages that lasted for years living apart! So we'll see. Anyway, your support is so appreciated!! I had a dream about you the other night!! That's the 2nd I've had of you! Hope you and doggies are well! *hugs*
from augustdreams :
On your 101-Things list: I loathe organized sports and round sports-related objects too! And as for not living up to that "dainty, feminite girly-wirly" crap - Pleh! I think REAL women, with real bodies, who smile and sweat and have better things to do than coordinate their handbag with their outfit *gag* are sexy as hell. Mmmmmm, yeah. Just my two cents. :) I now return you to your regularly scheduled notes.
from chaosdaily :
the recipe for puppy chow is on the back of the crispix box. its called meltdown mix, and it's yummy!!
from bluemeany :
Oh. Shit. I hate not being caught up. Obviously I misunderstood what you were talking about. Damn, I'm sorry. That's what I get for letting myself get out of the loop. And I don't think I've ever read your private entries. Is there a password?
from ava-reborn :
Ah, for your window or my own???
from dangerspouse :
Aw Wenchie, you don't owe me nuttin'. Your mere presence on this Earth is payment enough. Well, that and your sordid (if ocassional) tales of unfettered decadence. And yes, me and wifey really DO get on that famously. It helps that were are best friends, having met through similar interests. We keep each other laughing :)
from chaosdaily :
hey wench, its your diary. if i dont like the way a particular entry is going, i just dont read it. im sure some of mine are boring enough to be skipped :-P just write what you want!
from f-i-n :
hoping all is well in the new year
from bindyree :
Wenchie, I just wanted to drop you a quick line and tell you Happy New Year, and that I am always so glad when I see your name in red here on my Buddy List! Thank you for sharing with us all of the wonderfulness that is you. :-) ♥
from breezip :
Heya, Wench! Thank you so much for the card and the pics from your SF visit! That was a really amazing lil holiday treat! :) I hope your holiday celebration is lovely. Cheers - Bree
from smokefree-me :
Thnanks for dropping by and adding the note. You bring up several noteworthy points - especially the bit about self defense with excessive force. Hadn't considered that when I responded. That whole area is sort of a pet peeve of mine - at times, the person being accused of a crime has more rights than the original victim. Don't know how to fix that one, but it is fun to debate sometimes. Anyhow, thanks again for stopping by.
from manic-vent :
thank you so much for adding manic-vent, but I finally went home to b0b0. I have been moveing my entries there and cleaning out the cobwebs.
from bluemeany :
Of course I was joking about that, silly! I wanted to put a smile on your face, but maybe I should have chosen a different joke. The last part, though, about crossing my fingers for you, I was sincere. Feel better!
from mom-on-roof :
I'm sorry Wenchy, it's just my way, to try to jab and joke and get someone to think of something else. I know you're hurting, I was just trying to say dumb stuff, that's all. I havent' had my heart broken, at least not in the romance dept, and so I have this faulty assumption that you can just "shake it off" with a little laughter. If I've made you feel worse, I'm sorry, whatever I do and say, it's out of love, so ya know. I'll be thinking of you today, and hoping that someone in your actual field of vision makes you laugh and feel a little better, because it's not working over this medium.
from breezip :
Hey Wench - thanks for the note and the technical feedback. I'm working out the kinks--will take me a while to figure everything out. On falling into holes: yes, as you suspect, wet and squooshy, baby. Oh, yeah. ;)
from mom-on-roof :
Of course we're GREAT friends! And be careful about inviting people like me to your house, because people like me might actually show up!
from f-i-n :
Yes, those sticks were palm trees. They remind me of feather dusters, so ugly. I can't wait until the city replaces them with oaks, as they keep promising...nice, leafy shade to protect me from burning like an egg. Also--those buildings obviously had a problem. The windows are supposed to be built with high-impact glass. Somebody didn't do their job.
from reese219 :
Thank you so much for leaving that nice note for me.I really appreciate it.I am reading through your entries and I think I will add you to my favs if that is ok?
from ava-reborn :
Haha, sorry. ASBOs are well known here. And I see what you thought about it being a disorder, but it's not. "Anti-Social Behaviour Orders" are given to out of control kids who are in constant trouble with the police. The order outlines certain rules the kid has to stick to, like keeping away from specific places.
from chaosdaily :
yes i am still on antibiotics.. i have been for almost 3 weeks. and no ice or heat, i did that in the beginning to increase the circulation and try to clear some of the junk away. as to the ace, i dont wrap it real tight, but compression is one way to deal with swelling...
from ava-reborn :
The urine sample pack comes with everything you need. You put these little plastic stones in a clean tray. They look and feel like litter but being plastic obviously don't absorb. I keep Caleb shut in a room with food and water for a few hours with no tray. Then when I'm ready to take the sample I give him the "pretend litter" tray. Then when he goes, obviously the wee just puddles in the tray and you use a special pippet to suck it up then squirt it in the test tube. Simple. x
from smedindy :
Glad you wandered in! Go ahead, peruse. Have a beverage if you desire. I can't always guarantee guffaws or har-de-hars but I always will get a tee-hee or a chortle. Definitely a chortle. Take care!

Receipt of the dog wasn't voluntary. She is just past being a puppy - she's about a year old. And she's at the uncle's house now. I didn't care HOW late it was!!! If I could spend time with her she'd be okay but I can't skip work to puppy-sit :(
from im2evil4u :
You are, you are, wench-woman. Hover over "more" in more experienced and you'll see. Thanks for the advice!

from hissandtell :
My banners are horrendously predictable, wenchie doll? Oh, the shame! You know, I try to make ordinary witty artsy banners (like my MC Escher one) without pictures of tits or bums, and they get a pissy 3-4% clickthrough. My saucy hot and spicy ones always hover at around 7-9%, so like a cheap tart of the Andy Warhol factory, that's what I keep churning out. Sigh. I hate myself every morning for being a two-bit prostitute to the awful shallow world of advertising, but what's an aging goddess to do? Love you! R xxx

Not ALL Men's, the rest use the cardboard roll to wipe or scrape. Tee Hee :)
from bluemeany :
Unfortunately, no ... possibly because I haven't taken the plunge re: nude-with-weapon-only photo. Husband might not be too thrilled, y'see. Such a shame. I always enjoy a good breezy kilt.
from im2evil4u :
Well, he won't come near me. Yet. And as for the Fatty, that is The Husband's fault.
from bluemeany :
Yes, it's me, alright! I chose that photo because I felt like such an utter badass with my giant shades, smokng within 50 ft of the fuel truck -- I am SO a Rebel. Har! Stupid Army ... I think it's made me cheesier than even I thought possible.

from evababy777 :
i guess my template is showing up differently on other people's computeres than it is on my own. it shows up big enough to encompass the pics on my own. i'll look into enlarging it. i also hate it when people's scroll boxes are too small. thanks for brining it to my attention. :)
from pummela :
Hello! Thanks for leaving your note, and for all the nice compliments about my art stuff. Ya know, I had completely forgotten to make a link for my profile on my entry page, youre the first to point that out! Very good of you. And thats a mighty impressive cucumber, by the way!
from ava-reborn :
Sorry sweetie, I didn't mean to cause you offence personally. You and I have very different political opinions. I wouldn't take offence if you were rude about right wing voters. It's not a personal attack just a general dislike of the opposite poilitics. As for my point, I wasn't saying it was right to kill the guy. Obviously it was wrong. But my point was that the 4 officers involved believed him to be a suicide bomber. They weren't in the wrong. Any blame should be aimed at the intelligence from above! And yes, some people have said they fear being shot by the police since the incident, but they ARE in the minority! Anyway, again, I am really sorry I caused you offence. You and I are never going to agree on political issues! We're polar opposites! Which is why I don't react or comment when you write anti-right wing entries. I know you can't understand my politics, just like I can't understand yours. I still really like you and respect you. Thank you for the Gabriel link, by the way! Oh, and the meat in the alley, that is just vile! Could you maybe put up a sign pointing out the hazards to these ignorant people?? I'm thinking of doing that near me. Someone puts all their leftovers on this patch of grass near the road. I've seen people pulling their dogs away from it when out walking, but I've never seen cats eat it, who I assume are the intended diners! I reckon rats are the more likely guests!! After a couple of days, it's just putrid.
from moodymelinda :
I give up! this is a copy of my last attempt to send you a comment in your diary . Here it goes: My God! This is the fourth time i try this...i will probably end up sending 4 similar messages to you..argh. first i wrote a long and enchanting comment..and it didnt get posted....then i wrote another one..and that didnt get posted either...and then i noticed i had to have a valid username....so i guess there is where i messed up.....and i am not even sure i have it now.......I just wanted to thank you for the nice comments you left over at my place. i like them..lots

I just read my back notes on Haloscan and realized you'd made several comments I didn't reply to. :) I did write about the interminable date, but wrote it on my off-Diaryland site because I was pretty specific. I sent you the password information but I know you didn't want to go of Diaryland. But there are a few things I won't put on a public site.
from chaosdaily :
well i did warn you that i hadnt read it.... but that and little house were the only ones i could think of.
from ava-reborn :
Thanks for letting me know. Coincidentally, a couple of hours after I wrote my entry, I suddenly received all my notifications for the past couple of days!
from bluemeany :
Hey wenchie ... sorry about your sharts. Feel better!
from bluemeany :
In Savannah, GA, where I've been stationed, they have "parks" in the middle of the main roads downtown -- kind of like traffic circles, but more square, and less spacious. Also I think they spread an extra layer of Bumpy Things on them each night. It's hell when drunk, and you HAVE TO travel if you want to get to the good bars. Villainy, I tell you! Great entry.
from awittykitty :
How horrible about the smashing of artist fingers. Yow! My Dad didn't like my artsy leanings either, but he just withdrew his financial support for college. He wanted me to be a dental hygeniest, which considering I'm a germaphobe, was probably the reason I dropped out of school alltogether. Now that he's gone, my art (paintings and pastels) makes me very happy. I sold my first painting about 6 months ago.

Thanks for your comments. I know, that "I said please and thankyou" was a perfect explanation!! Made me laugh! Thank you for your comments about the photos! And for complimenting K and saying she looks like me! As for the school work we're doing, we've been learning more about how people lived during the war and what it was like, rather than the politics and reasons behind it, although we have covered that too. Yeah, the idea of the exhibition is great isn't it. We've been doing a lot about evacuation, so it was perfect. I've been concentrating on how children lived during the war because I think it makes it more relevant and interesting for K. Thanks for showing an interest lovely. As for the Wizard Of Oz, although it came out before the war, it was shown a lot at cinemas during the war. It was in a section about what children did for entertainment and fun. x

i dont have gold. but on my links in the middle of page, it says photos 2004-early '05. There are TONS in there. Im still curious about the photo on yours. And yes, its crazy its like my inlaws think my uterus is for rent. Besides, doctors think i'll have problems concieving, But im "ok" about it, cause im freakin 20. i can wait a good 5+ years, right? lol. Anyhoo:)

Is that Ganesh on your template. IF im wrong, im sorry. Im just guessing. *I like your diary. if its ok, i plan to check back often. PS)that horrid comment that was left for you, she/he is a crackpot. a total lunatic. Youll be a great parent.
from im2evil4u :
This was about three years ago, give or take. He is fine and the parents have recovered. Actually, I do believe they are going to attempt to adopt yet another. I'll get more info for you after I see my former boss on June 3rd - if you like, I'll give her your email address to give to her Nephew, perhaps he can shed a brighter light on the whole experience.

from hissandtell :
I had to share this with you: J, in a flap about a crashed hard drive on his computer, went to town yesterday with a shopping list for the supermarket. I'd asked for two heads of garlic, and guess what he came home with instead? Two huge rhizomes of ginger! I'll put it down to stress making him more absent-minded than usual. Either that, or it's just a happy figgy coincidence. Love, R xxx
from ava-reborn :
Hahaha!!! You made me laugh out loud!! I love the idea of asking a Chihuaha owner if they knew how small it'd be when they bought it!!! It's ridiculous isn't it! If I had a mongrel I could understand it, but when you have a pure breed pedigree dog, which you obviously had to pay a lot for, you're going to know what you're getting!! And like you, I met both Finlay's parents, and the rest of the litter. And I grew up with a German Shepherd. Another question I get a lot is, "Is he ok with your daughter?" Errrrrm..... no, he bites savage chunks out of her!!! WTF??!!! My friend has a Great Dane, called Mo. As you can imagine she faces the same idiocy every day! I was with her once when some woman asked if she lived in a mansion! She said no. She said "Well, yoor house must be really big!" My friend went on to say no, it was just a small 3 bedroom council house. This stupid woman seemed astonished! The other thing is, people think if you have a big dog you must have to walk them more. They think (and this alarmingly includes some owners of small dogs!) that small dogs need little exercise! The fact is, like you say, Terriers, Jack Russells and other small dogs are ratters and hunters. They need more exercise than most big dogs! Unfortuantely I think we're doomed to face these stupid dog-ignorant people forever! I wish I lived near you so we could take Doggies, Finlay and Mo out together! What a stir we'd create! *hugs*
from hissandtell :
Ha, you're onto me. My real advice to her was, of course, to be assertive, honest and up-front with her boyfriend, and unapologetic for anything she's done in her past - and he can deal with it or not. If he can't, she should start looking for someone who can. The German porn and blowjobs business is simply generic advice that I find works quite well in most situations when one wants to get one's own way with men (along with bowls of clothespegs and the usual accoutrements). And I don't shave my pubic area or underarms, and almost never have (except for occasionally allowing others to, in my more rash moments); I think body hair on women can be extremely appealing. (I do sometimes use one of those Emjoi tweezer-thingies on my legs, but that's mainly because I rather enjoy the sensation of having the hairs slowly ripped out by the roots...) Love, R xxx

I hope to NOT disappear leaving behind a vast echo chamber. It's been two weeks since I posted and I acknowledge that I have been bad. But two weeks has happened before. I think it was four weeks at one point. But I always come back.

Hey there, I noticed your response to my Iraqi sand offer and I had to check you out. Of course I'm not trying to spread Ant Diseases or anything, but I just couldn't think of anything else to offer! I enjoyed your diary, by the way, and will definitely be linking you. Also I liked the little disclaimer thingy and will be getting one of my own - great idea! -Meany

WENCHY!! Hey babe, sorry if this is late getting to you. I haven't been back to D-Land much lately, but I just spotted your latest note to me today. OF COURSE you can have a cd! Just drop an e-mail to me at notepad101@gmail.com and one will be dogsledded to Canukland forthwith. Luvluv mushymushy baybeee :)
from ava-reborn :
You're right, Andrew used to be good at responding to emails and tech requests. If he is suffering some kind of peronal tragedy, I'm very sorry. But a quick news entry to inform us wouldn't be too hard! He's running a business after all. He did add a news update the other day, so it's not like he, or his people, can't get to the computer! We are paying for a service, after all.
from ava-reborn :
Thanks for the note lovely. But remember Emily wasn't calling me fat! She was still playing the game, calling the big fat scary fire-breathing dragon names!! It's just that Sandra missed all that and returned just as Emily said "You're fat!" So, Emily wasn't acting unacceptably. But thank you, I will give my mirror a whacking from you!! Hehe!! xx

beautiful wenchie....brag up your work hon and don't worry about the ones that may be disappointed- as there always will be some regardless. And, as for the pudgey blues....yes I can relate. And you ARE a beautiful woman wench- and I don't have to SEE you to know that! Besides, I actually happen to PREFER babes with some bulge....more to cuddle, snuggle, kiss and tease....he he. Too, skinny rails are just not attractive, and I hate feeling like I may break them if I, well, YOU know! And if you are wanting to give out hickies btw, ummm, well, my neck is always available!
from hissandtell :
Darling, I would hate to think you believed I was serious in the comment I left at evil's. I wrote my Master's thesis (in Marketing and Professional Communication/Public Relations) on communication theory (incl. semiotics and metalanguage) and practice in the environmental movement; in my comment I was simply trying to be ironically flippant. In fact I was recalling President Reagan's (supposed) response to Helen Caldicott's admonishment that he ought not exacerbate the hole in the ozone layer by burning glossy magazine paper in the White House fireplace: "What difference does it make? It all just goes up into the air." Naturally, I largely agree with your comments. Love, R xxx

Wenchbaby~ Hey! Being gone for awhile is pretty good in the sense that it has forced me to re-read journals and profiles to get caught up_as well as reactivate my horrifically screwed with/and up memory! I just read your 101 list again, and shoot- I didn't realize there was so much in common between us! Not that I needed anymore reasons to adore you...#'s 2,13,31,33,53,67,71,74,77,92 to spot a few!

You are fucking brilliant, my friend.

They are not sure. He was born with a heart defect, and certainly the drugs didn't help matters. I'm really sad about it... even though I didn't know him that well.
from im2evil4u :
He's a somewhat famous comic and those lines were from his routine. His delivery was hysterical and he was a great tipped. I also had a bit (read:huge) of crush on him and talked his ear off on slow nights (as he did mine) but he was in love with his heroin.
from im2evil4u :
I kind of knew him, actually. He frequented a bar where I worked when he was in NY doing shows. He was always nice to me and never failed at cracking me up.

They offer an older version that might work for you.
from loner-blues :
Eh, I've never believed in love at first sight anyway. As for being too young...ouch! Frankly, my friends are usually at least ten to twenty years older than I, so why shouldn't a boyfriend or girlfriend be so as well? Still sort of freaking out, but focusing on my writing seems to be keeping me stable for the moment. Whatever works, right? -cat

Well thank you very much for ruining my vision of Eutopia. LOL :-)
from loner-blues :
No, no, no. When I said I want to send all the stupid people to the Arctic, I meant the South Pole. LOL
from loner-blues :
I'm EXTREMELY LUCKY. More so than I deserve. My mom does a lot for me...too much, in fact. My parents are infinitely understanding and compassionate when it comes to supporting and caring for me. It's difficult not to feel guilty and like a complete burden...I mean, Lord knows when they signed on to be parents years ago they didn't expect to get such a lemon of a kid. Like I said, luckier than I deserve to be.
from loner-blues :
Yeah, he's my cousin but I don't like admitting that. :-) It's not so bad...living here. We all leave each other alone when we so desire and we're free to commune if that is our wish. If I didn't live with my family, I think I'd go completely off the deep end and kill myself. They keep me balanced and in check, so it's actually a good thing that I live here.
from loner-blues :
Not rotting exactly...I have a couple of chronic illnesses: fibromyalgia/chronic myofascial pain complex, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, depression, and diabetes. All of which require medication. I'm twenty-seven, I still live with my parents because I'm (currently) unable to work and the twenty year old is my mom's nephew.
from loner-blues :
:-) I have dreams of emigrating to Canada or Great Britain some day...once I'm off Social Security and supporting myself. Right now I think they'd take one look at my medical records and say: Hey folks, this bitch is just coming here for the free health care. Let her rot in her own damn country!

Oh yeah...please don't hold the fact that I'm American against me. Hehehe. I didn't vote for Bush, I swear! :-D
from loner-blues :
It not so much that I like being a loner as much as it is simply who I am. As for the "blues" part...I get extremely lonely sometimes. You read the quote on my profile right? The one about traveling only with one's "betters" or their "equals" and if you can't find that, travel alone? Well, I've been traveling alone for quite a while now and it's just not an easy thing to do...so that's why I named my diary "loner-blues." Kind of lame I know. *Lopsided smile* I really enjoyed your survey and I'll definitely be checking out your diary. -cat

You could try feeding them separately. (Your cats, I mean.) It may sound mean, but put the fat cat in a room until the boy kitty eats. That way they both get to eat, and the plump one won't eat too much.
from avalonte :
I forgot to reply to your comment about Harry having a DNA test. I don't think they'd dare risk it as there is a genuine chance of the result not being the one they'd want! Diana said a few times that Charles was uncertain. As the guy she had an affair with had red hair apparently just after she'd given birth, Charles walked into the room to see her and the baby and simply said "Oh. He's got red hair" and walked straight out again! Granted Diana was not the most trustworthy source of information, but if there is any truth in the things she said, then that'd be why a DNA test was never carried out. Anyway, I agree, there is some of Charles in Harry. But there's also a similarity between Harry and the other "possibility"!
from poolagirl :
Thanks so much for the nice birthday wishes! Yup, 53 big spankeroos for me this year. Quite amazing. I didn't think I'd make it to 35 when I was twirling around in my wild youth. Kinda glad I was wrong.

Hehe, I don't know if Gabriel's put on weight yet. He gets weighed next Tuesday! My fingers are firmly crossed! He's on 65g of this high fibre low calorie dry diet food a day!!! His belly thinks his throat's been cut!! Bless him!
from avalonte :
Ok, point taken. I was using the word as it was originally meant. It wasn't originally a particularly derogatory term. They were Turnpikes/Pikeys. (Which were different to gypsies! But people who didn't grow up around them often don't understand and sometimes group them all together). It wasn't even objected to by them themselves! It's just what they were. But as nowadays it also (incorrectly) refers to uneducated, low incomed people who wear Burberry and gold clown necklaces (More commonly known as Chavs), I take your point that maybe it's not a word K should learn, for fear of it being misinterpretted by those who only know the modern version. If that's your point, then you're right. I should call them Travellers to K. And just make sure she knows the difference between them and gypsies. But I am still right to warn her they are dangerous people.
from avalonte :
Sorry, I just have to say one more thing. I just googled the word myself, just to see what you might have read. Nearly every definition of the word was the modern usage. You know I said that the word is misused as an insult? Well, that is the modern use of the word. It's given to people on low incomes, who wear lots of tacky gold jewellery thinking it makes them look rich and classy. It's an insult for a stereotype. Like the American term "Trailer Trash" or "White Trash" I guess. Most of the google results point to that usage. The original word came from the turnpike, applied to the Travelling community. It was a harmless term. It has been bastardised over the years. Like I said before, using in it that sense is wrong.
from avalonte :
Oh and by the way, what do you mean the general concensus on my notes was that everyone's surprised I would use a term like that? You're wrong. Everyone asked what a pikey was!! One person thought it meant something else but apologised when I explained. And the only person who actually KNOWS what they are just showed surprise that no-one understood the word! You were the ONLY one who took offence at the word.
from avalonte :
Read my latest entry. Pikeys are not gypsies. I don't have anything against gypsies, as I said in my entry. I think you misunderstand the word Pikey. It is often used incorrectly. It's an overused word, applied to the wrong people. I'm sorry, it is NOT like saying "those blacks". Almost all Pikeys are trouble. You haven't come across them. If you look at one for more than a second, you will get verbally attacked!! Simple as that!! Like I said, there maybe some decent ones around, but they are the minority. If you knew of a group of paedophiles were in town, wouldn't you warn your child to stay away from them? Travellers (if you don't like the term Pikey, the only reason I don't use the word Traveller is because it's a more generic term which could apply to gypsies, who are harmless) are dangerous. That's a fact! I've grown up with them constantly around. As for the SZ thing, that was saying that it was a bad thing to look like people with Down's. That's not even loosely similar. Travellers WILL swear at you and abuse you if you look at them in town. So why is it wrong to tell K not to look at them?!!
from avalonte :
Pikeys are genuine scum who live in caravans, in little colonies, and travel around the country setting up camp wherever the fuck they please. Usually car parks, and children's playing fields. They are mostly Irish, or of Irish blood. (But no, I'm not prejudiced against the Irish!) The kids don't go to school, (or receive home ed!) The adults don't work. They are dirty, and often shit in the public playing fields they're camped on!! Or, if they have a toilet in their vans they empty them out on the field/car park before they move on!! They always leave their rubbish and litter behind when they move on, too. They cause loads of trouble, getting into fights, terrorising residents, and stealing, both from shops, and nearby houses and gardens. When I mentioned "bargaining", I meant they were probably offering to get it for free in exchange for not coming back later and setting fire to the burger van!! "Bargaining" as in "an offer you can't refuse"! They are genuinely nasty scum! We get quite a few round here quite often because there are so many fields. The word Pikey can be used as an insult for someone who's dressed shabbily or doesn't have much money, but in that case, yes I would agree it's wrong. But these were genuine Pikeys, and I was warning K not to look at them, for our safety. I'm NOT apologising for that! I'm not pre-judging a group of people because of a lifestyle which is different. These people are bad news! It's like knowing someone was a paedophile and warning K not to go near him! I'm not saying there are no decent Pikeys. I'm sure there are. I saw a programme about them once, and there was a young girl of about 16 who was looking into getting out of that lifestyle. She wanted to leave and get an education. There must be lots of fairly decent Pikeys, but in general, they are NOT nice people, and are best avoided!
from avalonte :
Oh my god! You attacked me without even knowing what a pikey is! Firstly, I wouldn't have been "embarrassed" for anyone to hear me use the word! The fact is, if they think anyone is looking at them or talking about them they tend to get abusive, usually physically!! I'm not exaggerating! A simple glance in their direction often ends up with you receiving a verbal attack!! THAT'S why I wanted to be subtle! Not because I was ashamed!! Secondly, it's not even similar to calling you a queer behind your back and saying to avoid you! That's prejudging a whole section of society when they haven't actually done anything to hurt anyone else! I don't think like that, but even if I did, I would NEVER push my opinions on K! The only reason I said what I said was to protect K and myself from being attacked, either verbally or worse! And that's why I was worried when K said it out loud!! Not because I was ashamed!! They ARE Pikeys, and they are NOT nice people! I'm going to run out of space in a minute, so I'll start a new note.

But...none of that would have advanced my image as a curmudgeon in my story! I have a reputation to uphold, you know. LOL...forgive me, I just sometimes like to play a little fast and loose with the facts in order to make a story - or phrase - more humorous to me. And it's all about me me MEEE!

Stumbled and your dairy and am/was thrilled to see Sri Ganesha!! I dream about him endlessly. I agree on Triplets and did not even get to the end... both My Sweetie and I kinda of wandered away while it was playing.

Thank you for your wonderful writings. with love, ophelia
from dangerspouse :

As for the note you left in my diary last night ... you're right that some people are starting to think that HIV is not that big a deal. In West Virginia, where I am, though, the stigma is nearly as great as ever (generally, the state is about 5-10 years behind urban parts of the country). And as for funding - -I certainly don't expect we'll be getting any exciting funding from the government, which is why I'm trying to cultivate other sources. Trying, trying to be creative....looks like great stuff is happening for you with the book. Congratulations!
from radiogurl :
Yes, I know it was irrational to make the fighting gender issues, but that was kind of the point. Women tend to blame men for wars (and I'm one of them that's bad about that) but every now and then I'm reminded that women are just as bad or worse when it comes to fighting!

Sounds like you're asking yourself some important questions. For my part, I'm so envious of your artistic career -- in some ways, at least. You have attained something that lots of people wish they had -- the discipline to work at home and market yourself. And yet, I hear what you're saying about being less willing to put yourself out there for other people's commentary. I don't think that's a bad thing. A sleeping seed, fallen from the fruit that feel from the tree? Things that have died, that now are sort of gestating in the winter? Maybe that's more optimistic than you feel like being, but still...I'll be interested to see what comes of this seemingly fallow time.

Hi. Thanks for the note. I didn't *really* think I'd sparked it--I see the layers of the onion, man--there are lots of 'em, aren't there?

Hey there! Glad Onewetleg got to see Snowy! And to get back to your comment about the rabbit droppings, I've litter trained her so she does it all in a litter tray on the floor then springs back up on to my bed. She's mad!

Glad to have them back anyway. :o) :o) Hoping to get your Crimbo card posted tomorrow unless there's an extreme snow storm tomorrow and we get snowed in! Unlikely though. It's not even cold enough.

Hello ! Thanks for the nice notes, its so nice to get some.....although I am really bad at leaving any myself. Every thing seems a mess lately and not even my head seems to be in the right place.

from loonasea :
Nice collection of stuff. I think, just to nit-pick for a second, that African-Americans were actually considered to be three-fifths of a person, each, in order to compromise between the Northern and Southern politicians...because none of those politicians wanted them to be declared persons, whole and entire and deserving of rights, but the Southern ones wanted to be able to count them in some ways, for population, and the greater representation in government it afforded those states.
from im2evil4u :

Sorry, I have to correct you, fox hunting was banned several weeks ago. Yesterday's decision was simply about when the law should come into effect. And even that was done just before I added my entry, NOT after! As for the black issue, I think you're mistaken, thy've not been tagged with the name "black". They're "chinkies", or "chinks". Even when I was a child, that's what they were called. Pakistanis and Indians sometimes come under the term black, but usually "African" people are called "black", and "Indians" and "Pakistanis" are all called "Pakis". Orientals are called "Chinkies". Over the past couple of decades they've been called "Chinkies", "Japs", or "slitty eyeds". There, so now you now the authentic English terminology! x

a note on the attribution of reason for success or failure...according to what i've read, women are more likely to attribute their own success in school or work to external factors -- the teacher was nice, my family helped me, i was just lucky -- while men are more likely to attribute their own successes to themselves. interesting, don't cha think?

I have to vent, cause I know you're passionate about this issue too. Last night, I got into the most heated discussion ever regarding same-sex marriage. For once, I was on my game and every time they came up with excuses why it was wrong, I had a response that made them stop and have to get on the defensive. But it irks me to no freaking end - they admit that I have good points, valid points, points that they actually stop and think about, but they're never going to change their minds. It makes me crazy. AGH!!! Have you ever found a way to get someone to change their mind? If so, pointers please... Thanks wenchie!

I was trying to send you a note last night but my cable modem went KA-PLOOIE. Anyway, Rathwel is the brother of a friend of mine, (Spazzymoto is what she is known by on her blog). He left a week ago to care for his children while he ex wife was having surgery and no one in his family has heard from him since. The missing persons report is purely satirical, but she and I hoped he might see my site, get extremely pissed off and call his sister to ream her out. At least then they would know if he is okay.

Yay, Heather Corinna! I love her blog! And the picture of you is quite snazzy too! My plants are frozen for real now, too. Sigh. Now I'm going to get ready for winter solstice sowing and dream of later planting....and concentrate on putting lots of good stuff in the compost over the winter! (have you switched qira and loonsea?)
from bitchslap69 :
the irony of the whole political snafu / debacle / tragedy in the usa is that I can clearly remember just a few years ago when it was cool to be american, and ppl were proud of the fact. and this was when our prez was enduring the impeachment process for getting the bimbo bjs in the oval office. ol slick willy still delivered the goods as far as the economy, while still meeting social concerns and giving minorities opportunities. i am at a loss to understand how it slipped away from our grasp. how did we surrender the reins of a great country to a fucking idiot warmonger in a 10 gallon hat? you can't imagine how embarassing the whole deal is. it's like going from prom queen to the geeky girl with zits and bad hair in less than a week. if it were a movie plot, it would be considered too implausible for the box office.

from im2evil4u :
Look, Kerry might not have been the best candidate but he was the lesser of two evils. Bush was and will always be against gay marriage because it is an issue that will send his major supporters, the Bible belt, in a tizzy. Kerry supported civil unions between the sexes, not legal marriage. Yes, I disagree with both on that issue Ė a person should have the right to legally marry someone they love, whether it is a man or a woman. The vast majority of New York and California, two states with the largest populations of (admittedly) homosexual people, voted for Kerry. Bush is so high on his right wing Christian values and that scares the shit out of me (and others apparently). People are no longer allowed to share their feelings in a public forum without the fear of being arrested. Howard Stern, for example, has insulted every race, creed and color since I first listened at age fifteen, has now been sacked with millions of dollars worth of fines for calling Bush an asshole. There are other issues as well, stem cell research (Kerry supports, Bush doesnít) and pulling our troops out of Iraq and cleaning up the mess that Bish started. The hatred of Americans has only increased since the administration decided that we needed to obliterate Saddam due to weapons of mass destruction. There were none. Only oil. Oil that lines the already saturated pockets of our current president. We were attacked, not by Iraq but by Taliban leaders in Afghanistan. Iraq, was not a threat to the US. In fact, Saddam feared the US and its power. Iím not saying Kerry was the best choice but he was our only other choice.

It's just what you're used to. It's part of your culture. But here it's an alien concept, so naturally the idea of knocking on doors to beg for sweets seems wrong to us. And because it's not part of our culture, it doesn't sit easy. Old people don't understand why kids are knocking on their doors at night dressed as ghosts and witches. They never had it when they were younger, (it didn't exist 25 years ago) so a lot just don't understand what's happening. Sure, if our society was used to it and it was a big tradition, then everyone would be involved and it would be different. Anyway, what you said about your brother, I'm so glad you understand. I'm glad my mum's not the only one who does it. And you are so right, remembering someone their warts is betraying their memory. xx

You know, aside from the entries themselves, I absolutely love the titles of your entries. It's the one thing I ALWAYS struggle with when writing in my diary. I'm almost positive I've used the same title for quite a few entries. Then again, I usually don't have trouble titling..titleing...titeling? (ok the word obviously doesn't exist and I'm still searching for the correct spelling) my soapbox entries. Well I've had another bash at trying to fix the comments thingy. My fingers, eyes, toes, arms and legs (human knot basically!) are all crossed in the hope it's working! By the way, about the copying and pasting, I like to make things awkward for people, lol. It is possible but isn't as straightforward as the typical set up. Basically, what you do is highlight the text you want to copy, then go up to "edit" on the top of the browser window then down to copy and voila!!!! I'm sure you'd agree that it's much more fun cursing at the pc to leave comments and cut and paste than all this boring old user-friendly stuff, lol. And to the "Like saying "she fought cancer with a positive attitude and is now in remission"... which sort of says "well, it is YOUR fault if YOURS isn't in remission"." I couldn't agree more! That attitude really pisses me off. I've met more than my fair share of prats like that. Anyway, I'll shut up now and will be back later in the day to leave comments more specific to your entries! I'm just wakened (although with the way I've rambled on, you wouldn't know it!) so I'll get back to that. :o) Huge hugz!

I've been meaning to leave you a note for a while now but I always seem to be in a rush when I'm online these days. I really enjoyed one of your past entries. It was the one about having too much stuff in our lives - too many things, too many rooms, too much stuff in general. Very thought provoking, especially living where I do where everyone lives to excess. The points you made have stayed with me until now. Very nice. Well, must dash again. Take care.

from avalonte :
Thanks for your note, and your obvious concern for me! I really appreciate it! But the thing is, he's not going after me just because things are going through a bad patch at home. We've been flirting close to the edge for months, ever since we split up, and I think his restraint has just come to it's end! Things at home can't go through a bad patch, as such, because he and his wife do not have a proper marriage. They barely pass the time of day. His condition for moving back was that they would just be mum and dad, not lovers. My friend actually knows Dave's wife best friend, so she has done some digging on the relationship from her side of it too, so it's not just his word I'm taking. And when Dave & I were having a relationship before, he was never too busy with family duties to come and see me, thankfully! So, it's not like I come second, not really. But you're right, I wwill be careful about starting things back up fully. I will remain in the driving seat, don't you worry!!! ;) Thanks so much for caring, lovely!!! xxx

I've thought more about "being called out" and I've realized it's my Irish (Scots Irish to be exact; the fam moved to Ireland 900 years ago so we just claim "Irish" yet in Ireland, anyone who heard my family name was O'Brawley, (I didn't advertise that. If you look like me and go to Ireland EVERYONE asks from what county your family hails) heritage. Like duels? You're "called out" (at dawn). If you're "called out" now, it's USUALLY not being called out to fight but as I was coming up it sure as hell was! Now, it's more you're challenging the person verbally or if it goes badly, physically. Naturally, one can use these old fashioned terms as a bit of an exaggeration to mean you put someone in her place. Also, somewhat related is "called on." Not just to mean "visited" but if you are "called on" something you did or said, that means someone brought it up that you did ___ and that's a negative thing. Like say I slept w/ my bestfriend's boyfriend (I have never), I would DESERVE to be "called on it" and hell, probably deserve to be "called out" too!
from might-could :
Thanks for the note. It made me think, you know, you are totally right. It's the "conditional approval" that's such bullshit. Like, even if you *don't* approve, keep it to yourself, asshole! I told my mother a couple weeks ago that I would appreciate NO comments, positive or negative, about my eating or my body...really *anyone's* around me. Less than 48 hrs later she said, "Miss Piggy." Nice. Well, I spoke to Shrink about it and he said, "Um, anger would be good here. She deserves to get knocked down (figuratively) for that. It would be good if you could." What I ended up doing was getting up and walking away. Anyway, what a pain! I totally support you in "bitch-slappin'" Dad away. Like you said, you can always check in with him later if you like, otherwise, you're totally perfect *exactly* as you are and if he feels better about himself by knocking you down, well, you're better off without him. Hugs to YOU

No, she wouldn't have been embarrassed. It's just if I'd started shouting at them it would have put her in the eye of the storm, as it were. Me going over and shouting at them would have been more scary for her because it would have brought the noise closer. So it was best to just sit as far away as possible and sooth her, rather than get involved. You're right about things being the same years ago, but I genuinely don't believe that would have happened when I was younger. We'd have had the fight, yes, but not in a crowded bus station. It was a pretty decent area. It's all gone to pot now. And boys certainly wouldn't have behaved that way to girls! Anyway, have a good weekend! x
from avalonte :
Thanks. Yeah, I would have said something too, but that would just upset K more. I was more use to her just holding her and soothing her, and making jokes. If I started an argument with them it would have freaked K out even more. By the way, "indecent"?!! Wow, I'd take that as a compliment!! Who wants to be fucking decent??!! Way too boring!!! I think you rock!!
from im2evil4u :
Copied and pasted from the note I left Hissand tell: The word Bukyak means f***ing c**t or f***ing tw*t. Take your pick. The thing is when translating Italian curses to English, according to my mother in law, it looses the literal meaning. In the US when one says f***ing c**t or f***ing tw*t they are merely using the ďf****ingĒ part for emphasis. In Italian it means that particular c**t or tw*t serves no other purpose but for f***ing - and that the rest of her is useless. Much more kick ass, I think.

Oh oh! I almost forgot your comments. About my diary, I don't know what's the problem. I'm not having any trouble with the links myself and I've looked over my HTML code and everything is present and correct. Don't know what's going on. Might write to Andrew if he hasn't already got me on his "blocked" list, lol. Also, about the liking preaching and arrogance....I never claim to be "right". I just write as I see the world and I'm always quick to remind people that I'm very aware this doesn't mean I'm right. And about your friend Ob, there's a part of me, if I'm honest, is fatally attracted to a certain kind of arrogance. So I know where that comes from, lol. As for the preaching, well, what can I say. It worries me that people love being told what to do. But I guess that's the diversity of the human race. :o)
from krugerpak007 :
Thanks so much for your lovely comment. That is me about 12 pounds thinner. I am trying to get down to that size again or a little less I guess. I guess one is never happy with the way one looks? Or is that just me? Anyway about the vegetables, we need to find something else! If I see another cucumber who knows what I will have to do with it?!!!! Thanks again for your comment. xoxo Kathy
from onewetleg :
yeah, i can't believe you don't have one up yet. sheesh. i am so there. remember last year with 'buy nothing day?' that's coming up pretty soon. i am going to request that day off. hmm. tomorrow. that should give him plenty of time to cover my shift. hehe. i asked revuereviews to ask you to be a reviewer, perhaps you should go and ask him yourself... love, jj
from dooki :
Can I just tell you how much I love you for your entry today? There is a book you should read if you haven't already called Adam Eve and the Serpent by Elaine Pagels. It's a correct documentation of the monks that translated the bible into English. My favorite is a particualar monk who translated Genesis. Funny thing, he isolated himself from all humans during his translation because he couldn't control his lust. He was punishing himself. The story of Adam and Eve was all made up by him in relation to his hatred of women for tempting him. Just think...all the sufferage of women boils down to one monk who couldn't keep his dick in his robe. THANKS KING JAMES!
from cailliath :
*or rather, NOT hurting others without their consent
from cailliath :
Also (can't shut up today), about the porn entry I wrote. You'll have to forgive the tactless writing, it's a thing I'm good at on this med. I write in anger, I write things less constructively than I would normally, and I'm not as accurate as I should be. But my attitude to a particular side to porn is still captured well in the entry. However, now that I'm in regular nuttyland today, I can be more clear on what I meant. I don't hate everyone who is in some way involved with porn (although I'm aware I stated that). But I do hate the people who take it all too far and in true human style, give it it's insidious, dangerous and horrible side. Like all things, it's fine in moderation and when it's handled properly. But I can't deny my anger at it being forced on me and having these sick freaks trying to get off in Yahoo Pool where children do often visit. And as far as I'm concerned, children should be able to go there without a second thought. It's a gaming area. I can handle it although it gets yawnsome but the foremost thing on my mind when these people start is, "I could be my 8 year old cousin and they do not give a damn what they're saying to me just as long as they're getting whatever they need to get off." I understand children aren't dumb. But they and even regular folk, shouldn't have to put up with these idiots. That's all I meant. Porn isn't personally for me (so far in my life, things change) but I know it is for many others. And I agree everyone should have an outlet for what they enjoy as long as it's not hurting anyone else....or rather hurtings others without their consent if you catch my drift, lol. But as usual, humans take it too far. I think that's where my anger was. Sorry for being a little hazy in the entry. It's the meds talking, lol. Ok, I think that's me said everything...although I'll no doubt find something else today. Everyone'll be glad when my PC is taken away from me, lolol.
from cailliath :
Hey about the pc story...all my sympathies, lol. The PC guys I go to do my head in to be honest. They talk all this crap about the hardware knowing full well I haven't got a clue what they're on about and when I ask for an explanation, I get an even more technical account of everything they just said. I'm great with pc's but the hardware is my major weakness and I often feel these guys take advantage of the folks that don't really know what's a good deal and what's not. I paid £350 for my PC last year and they're trying to tell me that it seriously will cost £200 to get it up to spec because "they've changed the motherboards they used to use". I'm sorry but thats bull. I don't blame you having the guy coming out. The ones you went to initially sounded GREAT. :-| LoL. Many hugz!

from ozarklily :
Thanks fer the note! I am in the wayback world w/ webpages. I just borrowed a college book on Dreamweaver and I'm *told* it's for any doofus (I think I'm up there) so I have high hopes that by autumn I'll know how to do something nicer. As for keeping privacy, that sounds advanced. Cheers

YOWZA! She IS super hot. Thanks for sharing. Since The Husband in stuck in Cincinnati I'll have to handle my own business and those photos work for me.
from im2evil4u :
I looked. I looked. I have been poking my eyeballs out ever since. Honestly, I think they could have found a fatter guy, with a smaller penis and even more gargantuan balls. For educational purposes, of course

No fear. I know exactly what teabagging is so there is no need for me to check out the rotten.com photo. Although I must say I am oddly fascinated to see what you linked to. BRB
from mom-on-roof :
Yes, dahhhling, thank you, lovely comment! Took me a minute to figure out the blue camo thingy, but you're RIGHT, what the hell is BLUE camo supposed to hide you from? And I did get my little comment thingie at the bottom of the page installed, JUST FOR YOU!
from dreamsongs :
hey, sorry i haven't left a note in awhile! happy belated birthday - i had fun with your latest survey, too.
from qira :
happy belated birthday!
from radiogurl :
Yes I saw the iframes on your page - they look lovely! And as it stands now I am leaning more toward Indianapolis, though there are still more questions than answers - not the least of which is, "How the heck am I going to get there???" Hopefully the car's back and operable shortly - I'm tired of being without a vehicle.
from pitbullshark :
Read what you want, in whatever order you want, or not at all...that wasn't my point. In my opinion, these particular entries, or series of entries, are unlike my other ones which are just daily diary entries. But these cruise entries are more like one huge entry that I would rather post all at once, but it is impossible to write them like that and just as impossible to read them like that, so I am doing them in one-day increments. I was just letting you know that there really was a beginning, instead of having you start an entry from somewhere in the middle, which is what, in my view, this was equivalent to. But yeah, skip or about, or whatever, I was just letting know, not creating a prescription.
from pitbullshark :
You could be right about it being the womb vs the nomadic thing, although when I wrote that, my artistic and psychic memory was of being a baby being held in my mother's arms and going on a journey, NOT a memory of sloshing around in the dark inside the amniotic fluid. I wonder if to believe your argument is to also believe that a baby is fully conscious in the womb (i.e., fully ensouled) and therefore abortions WOULD be killing a sentient being, instead of a baby in a womb still being just an animal body and the spirit doesn't enter until birth? I'm not saying I have an answer to that, am only pondering the question. P.S., it seemed that your were starting to read those entries backwards (i.e., discovering that it was a long entry, whereas really the beginning chapter of the story, the previous entry, was an even longer one.) You might want to check out "Older Entries" to see the correct order of them. I plan to continue the tale, though, so there are going to several more. Fortunately, others who have read them have written to me to tell me how much they like them.
from dangerspouse :
Awwww, how could I not leave you a note after that, no matter how much I protested in my entry? ((((HUGGSS!))) (and a cheap feel) Thanks for the kind, loving words kiddo - it meant a lot - and a Happy, Happy Birthday to ya! Many, many more :)

from jilllybean22 :
i think it could be a little better (4 u) if you didnt let strangers' opinions affect you & make you so defensive. i left you the note to apoligize if i had in fact offended you. Im sorry but im not going to respond in my own defense, because it would take to much time. the only thing i will say is i wouldnt actually call dcf on a lesbian mom. if you read my other surveys you'd understand that i take them in a goofy manner and 'blurt' out the 1st thing that comes to mind. sorry again if i upset you. i will pray for you, hope thats ok. love Jill
from im2evil4u :
I also think it is very cool and extremely liberal for a sect that began in the 1700's. I was simply amazed and putting my hatred for reality shows aside, I might actually watch this one till the end (although Iím sure Iíll be disappointed, as I always seem to be with the finale of reality shows Ė this from experience). I only wished that other religions would allow the spawn of their parishioners to decide if they wanted to stay or not, it would be a totally different world. What I would like to know is if after choosing real world, are they completely on their own or do they have the parents support. I searched online but there is no info on that.
from jilllybean22 :
oh crap lol. i just filled out your singlewomanlesbianadoption quiz and then realized your a lesbian! i am sometimes really blunt in those diaryland quizes, so i dont want u to think i hate homosexual people. i just dont agree with it, believe it to be sinful, and i have always been upset at same-sex marriages when children are involved. because those children have no choice but to be subjected to that type of sexuality and accept it as moral. sorry but i know what the bible says, and it says it is wrong, so i will pray for you. God bless -have a great day. love Jill
from im2evil4u :
I simply told him to sit and stay. That was the look I got. Dogs today.
from radiogurl :
Your class sounds like a wonderful gift to the children. I admire your patience and willingness to teach them self-expression. And about the guy who used the rubbermaid container to build his doggy car - from my own experience, it won't last nearly as well as your creation. The plastic will warp and split and possibly cut his dog.

oh my oh my! can i take your color-mixing class too? i started painting last year, and i'm still kind of muddling through....

Yes, it is a cemetary. In Colonial Williamsburgh in Virginia. I love that photo too and actually had forgotten about it.

no problem about taking your survey... and i did get some soon, actually i got some yesterday moning at about 5, it was pretty good other then the fact that it was so freakin hot!!!
from starzero :
happiness is so fucked up i couldn't figure out why it was in the 'comedy' section when i bought it (unseen). storytelling has the most disturbing sex scene i've ever seen. in fact, it qualifies as one of the most profoundly unsettling movies i've ever seen. happiness is a better movie, but storytelling just pulls at your insides until you are completely disgusted with human beings. everyone is corrupt, everyone is evil. no one has pure motives, no one is clean. we are all liars, we are all evil. that guy is not a positive person.
from chaosdaily :
oh its ok if you call the dude a turd, cause he is one!
from starzero :
happiness is one fucked up movie. have you seen storytelling yet? goddamn. oh, and you only have to sue me if i use it publically, like as a cover for one of my cds. when does oleander usually bloom? and what would it cost for me to use that photo as the cover for one of my cds? please note that i've made five so far and i've sold 3 copies of one and 1 copy of another: not a financially successful venture, this.
from chaosdaily :
ty for the note wench... thats what teh man suggested, taking the keyboard and mouse with me so he cant use the puter at all. we would ban him from it, but theres so much time during the day that we arent home and he is, that he would just ignore the ban. macs have keychains, to lock access, but i havent figured it out yet.....
from dangerspouse :
Hey Wenchi, this may sound dumb (although typical) but, what the heck are these trading card thingies, anyway? I mean, I see yours, and it's very nice, but...huh? Is this some sort of game that Diarylanders play, "collecting" them? What social activity am I missing out on THIS time??
from cailliath :
It's weird how people desert their friends AFTER a funeral isn't it? It's as though, "well that's them buried/cremated so I've done my bit and been such a good person, see ya!" I've always found it a very curious thing. I won't make that mistake with my friend but I just felt rotten that I didn't make it there. But you're right. Thank you for the lovely note. You're a star! And that's really crap about the money. Don't feel bad though pet. There's nowt much you can do if you have got enough to afford it. I know you know that though. People are always going on about how fair society has made the world. And it's always the people with a huge house, swimming pool, and huge fancy car that say so. I'm in no way materialistic or money-minded but I'd need to be stupid to say that money doesn't make life go that little bit smoother. Am off to do that footwear survey now. Thanks for the linkage!!! :o) Hugz
from onewetleg :
ok, i think i have it sorted out now. i had the link to her diary wrong, but that is what i had for the link to the survey. lemme know if it works. thanks
from onewetleg :
well, i thought i could link directly to the survey, i guess i could not. i changed it. i thought the 'ceiling fall in' question said 'ceiling fan' too when i first read it. it wasn't until i copied and pasted it that i realized what it really said. thanks for letting me know that my 'brilliant' idea for linking didn't work, you saved me a bunch of embarrassment, im sure. and thanks for taking the survey! love,
from mom-on-roof :
Oh GREAT, thanks for noticing all the CRAP under my deck. Actually that's my "construction gear", my radio (gots to have my tunes while I work), my little bucket to haul pulverized gravel, the golf-cart tire my husband used to cover the post-holes so no one would bust their ankle off and their tibia and fibula would bust through the skin and blood everywhere and oh, the screaming and thrashing about and the wasted time spent at the emergency room. Haa Haa! You know, I looked at that picture, and I saw all that junk, and I thought, I can crop that out, but who's gonna notice it, they'll be looking at the girls on the deck. ahem. ANYways, I LOVE the idea of printing up and passing out a little answer sheet for all the stupid questions people ask you about your dog, please do it, it would be quite amusing to hear about. Of course, you might get your ass kicked, but you'd have a tale to tell!
from breezip :
Hey - thanks for stoppin' by, and for the shout out in your entry, and for the righteous comments in the buddy description--what a treat to come home to tonight! I'll have something more substantive to say to you when I'm better rested. It's 1:00 am and I gotta crash. 'Night, Bree
from im2evil4u :
P.S. I love your drawings and only wished I had as much talent as you do.
from im2evil4u :
Actually, the BIL has talent (the paintings hang in the MIL's house.... she has a talent for hanging them). I remember the old Sears catalogs. I also remember the old Frederick's of Hollywood catalogs had drawings too. I spent many hours in the bathroom with those.
from im2evil4u :
Yeah, I like the first one the most also. The last two actaully hang in my own home and I have been meaning to post them for a while. There are about a hundred more on the walls of my MIL's house but I haven't had the opportunity to get shots of them. Too much eating, drinking, and talking going on.

Hi! Sorry, I've been neglecting my reading duties at the moment as I seem to be very busy. It makes a lovely change although I wish it wasn't due to other people's tragic losses. I promise to catch up tomorrow though! Huge hugz
from im2evil4u :
Succumbed? No, although my head hurts like a bitch. I have no idea how I am going to feel in the morning though. Should be interesting. As for the speech, I did it in a humorous way, which it was and still is a funny story... once we discovered it was a cop anyway.
from radiogurl :
We all want a life partner, one who will cherish us, complete us physically, emotionally, and financially - even me, the self-avowed anti-romanticist. I always believed that in order to find that person, you must also be that person, which is easier said than done. I stopped looking eons ago because I was tired of 'being' that person for someone who didn't have any desire to reciprocate. Sometimes I envy you for still having the hope and fortitude to try... I lost hope a long while ago amd don't have the heart to try again.

patricks mom was the one who asked him about wearing black. the dude spent a lot of time with him yesterday, and told me "he doesnt smoke" so thats at least a plus in my book, although he didtn specify what it was he doesnt smoke haha. it doesnt seem like hes into drinking either, ill have to have the kid over here and see what hes like.... ive only seen him with other kids i DONT like, so i dont know him at all. yet.

Ha! Loved your reply! Yeah, had the anniversary shindig, and will be writing about it shortly. Just been exhausted by filling in for other announcers during the holiday weekend - haven't had much sleep other than Sunday off. Speaking of sleep: GO GET SOME! Later, Wenchie :)
from dangerspouse :
Hmmm. I spelled "cathartic" wrong...and even THAT may be wrong. Did I ever mention that I can't spell?
from dangerspouse :
What do I think? I know this is gonna sound like populist pap, but: It's YOUR diary. If you're gonna refrain from posting catharthic entries because someone else might think ill of you, then what's the point of having a diary? Obviously if deleting the post will give you more peace of mind than leaving it up, then by all means delete. But personally, I've never been one to repress. Love ya either way, ya big mushy mushy!

thanks for your comments in my guestbook. they were insightful and intelligent. i was so angry that day that i was just ranting, but i'm still happy to live in america. i just realize that we are capable of such greater leadership than what we've been given lately. i hope that november brings the winds of change to the white house.
from pterals :
Hey there, yeah, I've been wondering what's happened to JL too. Hopefully she's doing fine, wherever she is. Anyway, I'm glad to hear you can relate - it seems as if there may be something more to this Regina purge than it simply being a wanting for change, ie. maybe Regina just really sucks and I'm loathe to admit it. Regardless, there are many good blogs from there - check out the reginablogs diary ring if you'd like to read some. Cheers!

A dead squid in my slippers....now THAT is terrifying! I'd have to be taken to casualty if they did that, lol. Hey, do you fancy rustling me up one of your salads? My mouth was watering when I read what was in it, lol. Am glad you had such a nice day. Little question that I've been meaning to ask for ages; when do you sleep?! Scrubbing porches at 1am? Then again, being up at that time means you get peace and quiet coz everyone else is sleeping. I love going round the supermarket in the middle of the night. It's like being a millionaire and being able to demand the supermarket open only for me. Lookin forward to the pix!!!! Hugz!
from dangerspouse :
You're right - she SHOULD have told me to bring the present. Oh well, she got a real kick out of totally suprising me. It's rare that she feels that kind of power, so it's actually more amusing than anything at this point. I've just gotta figure out how to publically humiliate HER in repayment sometime soon. Isn't that what love is all about?

Oh man, Wenchy, your "Leather" note to me was a riot!! Thanks - the originalty was refreshing and very much appreciated (um...for a withcy bitchy dyke, I mean.)

OK, people, this is the "mean" "mad" note I sent that poor bbgrljj: "omg. I think it sounds like a good thing to break up with someone you like, but who makes you hurt and that you think you should yell back. Yelling back makes TWO people yelling, and that is called a fight. not so nice for a boyfriend and girlfriend. eep! Anyhows sounds like you did a good job of it if you two are still friendly. congrats. btw i am here via onewetleg's place. tah! " commenting on an entry she wrote where she wonders if she did the right thing to break up with a guy who she likes but who hurts her alot, and she wonders if she should've yelled back at him when he yelled at her. And she says she broke up and they are still friends. Gee, I am so MEAN. And "pathetic when i'm mad".???? I thought maybe she was having an argument with someone else and sent a note to the wrong diaryland username. nope. Apparently what I wrote could be read as "bitchy and mean". Go figure. BTW just to everyone. I don't like sucking up and kissing ass, esp when it is after you've insulted me. So don't offer. It will not endear you any more than calling me a liddew bitchy witchy dyke.
from bbgrljj :
damn girl...Im sry Ithought that u were coming at me meanly. 'cause the last note u sent was mean and onewetleg said u can get moody so IM very sry...I appologize. do u accept? 'cause I can start really kissing ur ass if u want me to! :P
from bbgrljj :
alright little girl you know wat. If you dont like it then why dont you stay out...oh wait! you can't! the only thing u do is get on the comuter and be a bitch...aint that right liddew bitchy witchy! yes it is! yes it is! aaaaw! the little dyke is getting mad aint she! aaaaw u are so pathetic when ur mad! ok little girl, stop playing with me and be less serious about everything everyone sends u. some people like to joke...get used to it! dont read my diary if ur gonna be a bitch about it. it wasnt meant for u

from b0b0 :
Yes, we live 1840 miles apart. We met here on diaryland. You said that was scary- and I agree- if someone else told me this tale I would worry about them a great deal- however- it is just so easy and wonderful- In fact I have decided that every one should meet online- you see, by he and I reading each other for a time, and then talking for a long time, and now we talk on the phone for obsurd amounts of time- we have fallen absoluty in love with each others insides. And yes we have exchanged photos and what not, and he is coming here to visit one time before I move there- but the physical had no impact what so ever on our relationship. Its like normally, when people hook up, they see each other- they may be attracted to one another and think- "oh, their hot, wonder if I could get along with them" This way, we know the reasons we have fallen in love in the first place are completely inside. It is just wonderful- although I must say that he is extremly attractive to me and I to he. We both have our pics up on our profiles now, neither of us did before- I think we make a terribly cute couple- So that was quiet the bonus. But first and most wonderfully, we fell in love with each others mind and heart.

hey, wench, do you remember the entry i did with the ride through cherobyl? i got an email today from someone who wants to find it and i can't find it. i know you linked to it in one of your entries, maybe you could help. love,
from radiogurl :
Just read your comments - and I don't think you're *always* fatalistic (I went back and fixed the link so it went to the specific diary entry I was referencing). Not even mostly so! Everyone has their own perspective. I love what you have to say, though - you pointed to facets I wouldn't have considered. I don't mean to imply that I would want to benefit from the death of a child - but what if that child grew up to be another Hitler? I simply don't know enough to make judgment calls on everything that goes on in the world. It doesn't mean I don't occasionally do so anyway - I'm human too, with all the bad judgment that occasionally implies - and I don't think we can dismiss the terrible things that occur, either. All I'm saying is that we really *don't* know what an alternate ending might have produced.
from im2evil4u :
Yeah, along those "estate" lines but no where near an estate. More like a house crushed between two exactly like it with a postage stamp backyard. I hate it with such a passion but we bought it early, before the mass building started and now we are trapped because real estate prices are sky high. A one bedroom bungalow built in 1925 is nearly $250,000.
from im2evil4u :
Double park! There is no such maneuver allowed here. For two reasons, parking in such a fashion would prevent others from getting home and the Gestapo tow truck guy that sits in the entryway twenty four hours a day would have your car hitched and off to the impound before you made it to the door. The bastard.

Yeah, the outfit was great. But it looses something when a sixty year old man with platinum blond hair and an ego that puts David Lee Roth to shame wears it.
from cailliath :
Well you sure had me laughing there! Doing bun dances on laundry...so funny! But yes, it's an abundance of laundry. A seemingly endless heap of clothes. I don't read philosophy actually. I wouldn't know where to start. Any pointers? Hey, that ring on the police photos site was scary. Wouldn't fancy getting smashed by that bloke! And the brass knuckles being used as a paperweight was a classic. Some people! Hugz!
from avalonte :
Thanks. The whole thing is the watch. If you look closely you'll see there is no normal strap, it's just made of 9 thin strips of leather. The bit in the middle looks a little just like an ordinary slim strap, but you can see if you look close on the photo it's actually tiny strips. It's more obvios in real life. Well, last night I had a very strange dream, but I don't recall Dave being in it! Result!!! Take care. x

hee hee -- Sheetz is here in my part of the US....and it's actually my favorite convenience store chain, if one can have such a thing. It's owned by a family, the last name of which is, shocker -- Sheetz. Otherwise, I'd have to agree, what a scary name! In other news, OMG your peony picture is FANTASTIC!!!! I love it! Peonies are one of my all-time favorite flowers, especially for their smell. Now I'm getting peonies twice - once when they bloomed here, and once when yousend your pics! Hey -- question, do poppies bloom more than once a season? I've not yet grown them.
from im2evil4u :
About once or twice a month. Damn it, wasn't I going to bed? I don't mind really, doing so gives me a day off during the week. Really now, I am going to bed...

That photo is the entryway above the doors of the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Iíve uploaded a shot of the entire entryway for you here http://im2evil4u.diaryland.com/images/a2.jpg Thanks for the advice. Part of me knows it will work out but I have a tendency to get negative when new things come my way. But you might have noticed that already.

girlfriend, do you sleep?! heavens, go to bed! those irises look more than queenly. i miss mine -- down here they bloomed almost two months ago and are long gone. i'm so sad for your tomatoes...i wonder whether i could mail one of my plants to you -- they're getting too big for their pots... this notes entry sounds like i'm delighting in the warm weather, but really, that's not what i meant! anywho, thanks for the gorgeous iris pictures. peace, frog! qira

12:00 in the afternoon, does it matter? I'm an airplane virgin. I'll be joining the mile high club as I hug the metalic toilet seat while I puke my guts up. That is, if I can actually move from my seat to do so. BTW, to answer your question from yesterday's comment: no they don't know I call them that.

girl, you are absolutely right. but what ever it takes to get people to be aware, calling fag or what ever, i think it is necessary. i'm sorry to all my homo brothers and sisters but if one person can be saved, it is worth it.
from cailliath :
Wow you sound as though you're great at massages. I've never been a massage person myself. Probably because I don't get to enjoy them - I always fall asleep! Then again, that is a state of complete relaxation isn't it, job well done I guess, lol. Bummer to the sniffles. Those drawings are fantastic! The lemmings are so cute....I want a lemming! I wish I could draw half as good as that. Go you! Many hugz!

mmmmm....massage.....you remind me that having a massage is one of the things that the TurtleFaery and I want to do in the early afternoon or late morning the day of our wedding. (35 days out from now!!) Two of my exes were/are massage therapists, and so I've learned a thing or two -- only a thing or two, mind you -- about massage, and one of my favorite things about it is how good it feels to *do* it. when I'm finished wtih someone, especially if they're lying down, and i can use -- as you point out -- more than my thumb, i have this wonderful, yoga-like exercised feeling. lovely.

Hey, thanks for reading my stuff and adding me to your buddy list, I shall do same, LOVE getting a new bud!

I copied the information from my results page of the survey onto a WYWIWYG editor - if you have a Yahoo email account you can do that, I think - then switch it to the HTML view and copy the code. It will also work with FrontPage, but you have to copy without saving so it keeps the correct address for the image.

from cailliath :
Hey there. I donít know who the folk are that say knowledge stays with you when you die. I for one have never believed that. When youíre dead, youíre dead. End of story. Certainly Iím very much a person who believes that being materialistic is a pointless exercise though. I was a happy, bubbly, energetic person prior to getting ill and although things are tough and I no longer have the life I did, I still think everyone should live each day as the best person they can be. Not because I believe when you do good, you only get good back. Not because I believe when you love everyone, you get loved in return. Nor do I believe that doing good all my life gets me brownie points in ďHeavenĒ. I do it simply because, when it comes to going to sleep at night, I can be happy with who I am. I can only do my best and when Iím doing so, then thatís all the assurance I need. Lifeís circumstances twist and turn, go up and down, and I although I get fed up, itís life. And I wouldnít have it any other way. I watched my Nana frail and fail and finally she was no longer the person she used to be. But it didnít take anything away from the fact that she had been a warm, loving person all her life and created the family who were now with her as she died. Even if all you have is one friend with you through the terrible times in life, it makes a difference. My dear friend Catherine was diagnosed with a brain tumour last year. She has changed dramatically. She canít remember what she did an hour ago, canít hold a normal conversation because she repeats everything and is not the lively, happy, person she used to be. She was a teacher all her life and now she canít even remember my name. And as much as I find it cruel that she has lost everything she gained from her life, her being here has had such an effect on everyone she knows that her knowledge and example will continue to ďlive onĒ in others. Pretty much the Butterfly Effect really. Anyway, Iím not disagreeing or arguing with anything you say, just chipping in my tuppence-worth. :o) Although I do love the previous note from Gira! Anyhows, Thanks for the wonderful note. Hugz!
from qira :
resist the cynicism....resist the cynicism.... for my part, i'll say that the love going out, love coming back thing has always won out...that hope is better than despair, and that giving people the benefit of the doubt proves more helpful to my development as a human being than does assuming people will be a#$holes. but it's certainly been harder this year, in a place where i haven't know anyone, still without a degree and without the social contacts that made things so much easier in my hometown..... yes, who we are can be stolen away in a minute, and the illusion that we possess anything -- even our sense of self -- is in fact an illusion....but i have to believe that the relationships i have and the experiences i've shared are more valuable than objects....then again, maybe that is, as you say, nothing more than a helpful fiction. for now, i'll take it. i'd rather be happy, compassionate and hopeful--so long as i'm not entirely deluding myself or others--than correct and miserable. (which is not to say you're miserable -- i'm mostly thinking out loud...)
from radiogurl :
I just sent you an email on what to try with your monitor. Let me know if it works!
from radiogurl :
The kitty looks wonderful, and so does the iris. I miss living where you can have a garden in summer - gardens here are either spring or fall, and some of the hardier plants live through the winter - but almost nothing non-native will thrive in our summers. And thank you for the sweet compliment, but I really do admire a lot of the things that you do.
from avalonte :
The photo of the conch and scaffold were examples, the rest were mine. And just because people seem to have what you desire and seem really happy doesn't mean they're any happier than you. You've got all of us, your readership!! Your neighbour doesn't have that!! You're blessed, hehe!!!
from s-u-s-u :
Hi dear, yes I do wax my arms every month. They're pretty big on hairlessness over here, guess it's rubbed off on me. I refuse to wax my private areas though, too many ingrown hairs during regrowth. It probably took the halawa lady to save that money several years. A lot of people don't believe in banks over here for some strange reason, and keep lots of cash at home. As for gold, the poorest women still have lots of gold jewelry. Kind of a cultural thing, got to have that gold. Most of the maids probably have way more gold than your typical middle class American woman. By the way, how'd the sale go? I had my eye on the dollhouse, too bad I couldn't afford the shipping, haha.

Yay gardening! I'm glad that spring has finally really settled in for y'all up there, such that plants can go in. I still have seeds that need to be planeted, and I'm trying to decide whether late is better than never, in this case...some cosmos and zinnias and things... fun entry!

thanks for the notes. i am not czech or slovak, but i love those languages almost as much as i do french. i know very little of czech and slovak, but i am working on that. french was the first foreign language that i studied, and i still love it. my native tongue is english. what one person thinks of as bad may be something good to someone else. it's a question of perspective. i am going to check out youd diary. thanks again.

i think it is a rather innovative idea. i don't think it has been done before. i have started giving credit to andrew for the original design since i don't add much of anything just take some stuff out and change things a bit. i think that's fair. i mean, it wouldn't be right to say 'designed by me' because i really didn't design it, now did i? love,

well, once i get the tepmplate installed in her diary,it will be all words copyright betchy. and yes, it's only diaries i have 'meddled' in as you so delicately put it. since i don't know how to do 'screen-shots' and wouldn't want anyone else using the layouts i did for a particular person, i just put the diary on my buddy list. i don't forsee doing more than 75 and if i do, i'll just have to open a new site, won't i? hehe! i really enjoy fooling around with the colors and link placement and other stuff. if i can make a few people happy while doing it, more's the better!!! love,
from cailliath :
I love the fact that when I click on your highlighted name in my buddy list, I usually have a couple or at least one huge entry to read! And I love how you have photos in your entries. It makes everything more alive somehow. Thanks for the info on the bananas and coconuts, lol. And the turtleneck sounds like a good idea. Or perhaps I'll just go whole-hog and put a paper bag on my head. :o) Many hugz heading your way!!!

Haha, sorry for teasing you!! Unfair, I know! But whatever you were imagining is pretty close to the mark!! ;) Put it this way, he came back to our apartment at midnight, and he left at 8am. We didn't spend all that time just talking!! Hehe, mind you, we did talk solidly for 4 hours or so before anything happened! Even then it was just hand holding! He was such a sweetie! He obviously didn't want to take advantage! So I took the advantage!!! Hehe!! ;) x

well i wouldnt mind switching my schedule around, and go to bed about 3pm, sleep till midnight and then have a few hours up before i go to work. but it doesnt work when you have kids..... i used to have a job (when i was single) working 11pm-7am and that was the best! i would go to bed about noon. i had time for morning appointments, like dentist and hair cuts, etc... and id get up about 8 or 9, have something to eat and wander into work. its the schedule i would have now if i had the choice.

Hi me again, no I don't have a job. I don't even really qualify as a housewife, or "domestic engineer", because I don't do any housework, I have two housemaids that do all of that. I'm kind of lost right now. I'd like to have a job but I don't know what I'm qualified for, I've got a BA in cultural anthropology which is pretty much worth the paper it's written on. Plus, I'm kind of caught in this internal tug of war over being out of the home too much because of the children. Over here if you have a job your employer sees you as slave labor, the hours are horrendous and the pay is low. It's a bit depressing really. So I spend my time online, shopping, doing the charity exhibits, luncheons, etc. Yes, I'm probably everything most women in the West these days are not, funny thing is, I don't see myself as old-fashioned.
from betchy :
hello, read you on over25revue, and saw you listed by onewetleg as a fave also, and decided to read you. you're diary is so fun!!!! i really like it!! i did the battle monster thing, i got strength 11, agility2 and intelligence 4 "betchy is a colosal mecha-lizard that can change colour, spins vast webs, is covered wit a thick slime, cowers from radiation and has a sharp beak" when attacking strength 11,agility 3 and intelligence 4. that was real fun!!! read me and leave a note if you ever get a chance, hugz, beckz xxx
from s-u-s-u :
Ok, I see one grammar mistake, "many clothes". Thank you.
from s-u-s-u :
You're right, men don't respect women more depending on how much clothes they are wearing. I have a very low opinion of men, unfortunately, so I won't open that subject here. I see it more as women respecting themselves. I'm not advocating that all women should take up the veil here by any means, just to be more conscious of what their apparel really means. As to your comment about how in some cultures the people wear very little clothing, true, but that's both the men and the women, not just the women. I look at the lives of women in Iran and I think they look pretty liberal compared to what's going on over here. At least they're sitting in the same lecture halls. I just want to add one last thing, please don't think that the current way of life here is Islam. So many people have that misunderstanding. Many of the rules and regulations over here come out of cultural and tribal traditions and are not Islamic. In fact most of the countries that are calling themselves Islamic republics are using cultural traditions to keep women down.
from s-u-s-u :
You're right, they do pity Western women, especially the women. In some ways it's kind of true. Western society has become overly sexualized. It's kind of scary. Now that I've been away from it, when I go back to it I see it more. You have a barely clothed woman next to a fully clothed man, who's got more power there? What's that man thinking? He's not thinking about the woman's intellect, he's only seeing her as a sexual object. Kind of creepy. And all these "reality" shows that are about sex are really disgusting. That's not real life. Gross. I'm not a prude, or maybe I am, but I don't need to see that on NBC at 8 pm. I'd rather get an adult video.

from s-u-s-u :
I wouldn't know what to give someone like that. Thank God I didn't have to go. I try to avoid social situations with people from that economic stratosphere, they make me nervous. They somehow have a way of making you feel like a total incompetent even if you don't give a shit about their money. The few times I did have to give new baby gifts, I had to hit Tiffany's. Normal people are so much better. Those people are from another planet, too bad we can't send them back, haha.

hey you, I dont know if you have noticed what the joy is all about... just check where my zoo link used to be on my diary- thank you again for the kind notes ♥
from b0b0 :
Thank you for the notes. Yes, I disbanded the zoo. Everyone has gone to friends or family so that I may see them as long as I live here in this town.....I am reaaaaaly happy though. The moment I decided this and thought about what I would take away to my new life, I only wanted my oldest and dearest cat scruffy, and then due to my fears that no one would take care of the sugar glider correctly, I am takeing her. Its so strange to me, normally, I need new pets constantly, cant be with out them. I have spent alot of time thinking about what it all means. I think I have been getting all these pets and needing them around in an attempt to fill a need in my life. An emotional lacking. A desire to be needed and loved in this world. Now, I have no need for them. I will miss them, but I know they have good homes. My life is being torn down with every thing I take my name off, every peice of paper work i fill out , every item I sell off or give away. Yet, I am the happiest and most complete I have ever been. I no longer feel the need to search for completion in material things nor the accumulation of animals. Thank you again for the support. I am haveing a difficult time with the letting go of what has been comfortable in my life. But overall... I am alive! Thats the only adjective I can really use to express my joy. ♥
from her-story :
The whole beige story thing freaked me out. I almost started to cry out of embarassment, and I don't cry easily. I know how anal he is w/ that carpet, but it is all good now. He was able to get the stain up and I didn't eat the rest of the night. I'm starting to think that this monkey battle is fixed...
from s-u-s-u :
Hi there, thanks for the note. Let's see to answer some questions. Over here they call the veils we wear abayas. The optikal thing is a necklace that my husband bought me; the design is called optikal. My kids speak Arabic but I don't speak it very well at all. I can get by, but after about 15 minutes of conversation I've finished my wealth of vocabulary. I don't dislike living here all the time, haha that's a way of avoiding the question. I'm used to it, some days are better than others, some years have been better than others. Thanks for adding me to your favorites. Have a great day.
from cailliath :
Hey! I must have missed your "dismal" entry. So I clicked the link and read it. Being someone who is all for "looking on the bright side of life", I'm also guilty of reminding people that sure, in comparison to "having your family blown up by bombs, or starving on the street, having all your limbs and your mind, or watching your children die, or you're not homeless or dying of cancer or pneumonia" it still doesn't lessen what your feel in your own life. It's important to you therefore it IS important. Also, I've never agreed with the "if you try hard enough to can get what you want" attitude either because there are some things in life that you can lose through trying hard. I mean, if we were to employ that saying to a crush or an ex, a heck of a lot of people would probably be looking at a restraining order huh? LoL. I'm not making fun of your probs by the way, I just have a weird habit of trying to look at things in a bizarre way. Anyway, hoping you are having a chilled night or day when you get this. And, I actually like opening cans of worms. It's got something to do with my surname....or so I'm told, lol. Huge hugz!

I still have all of my limbs. I wanted to teach art to kids, but wasn't interested in becoming an elementary school teacher. My dream changed from art teacher to librarian, during my Sophomore year of highschool. Since you can't read my diary easily, you can get to know me better via notes, guestbook signins, even e-mail. If I do another one of your surveys, you can learn things about me, via that way too.
from fan4 :
LOL I'm a Fantastic Four fan, but I didn't write those books. Other people did. I just keep them in a drawer. Ack! My diary didn't show up well on your computer? Beats me why some people have difficulties with it, but other people don't. *shrugs* I don't see myself dating, because I'm a shy person, and don't know how to approach guys.

well thanks for your note, doc spock. maybe i should just think of him as being 2.... he sure acts that way sometime. he does think school is pointless, its only a way for him to get into college. i guess you're right though, since the kid had pretty poor grades in middle school, but has been on the honor roll since getting into high school. we had a good chat last night, hopefully that will help. ty

The bus service is insane. Iíd have to take a week to get there and back.

And I did make it home safely and with a very good impression of Montreal. Well, mostly of its bars.

I appreciated reading the responses. I suppose that means they are good questions but I couldn't care less about the 1st 2 questions (maybe I'm more into doing the best we can in the now). The last question can only lead to long resposes-even from me! I'm Pagan and most Pagans have no problems with others' systems of belief and don't mind our own being proved "wrong." Science? That is a religion, n'est ce pas? Like Poker. That's a science and I know people who worship it, as well. <shrugs> I've been made fun of by atheists for my strong religious beliefs though. So perhaps they're right but it's a Fool's Paradise! Hee hee

He will post anytime he is involved in some anti pollution, government etc thing- should be a good time- I hope you dont mind if I use some of those links to help his diary be nice and full- thems some funny signs too!

Hey! Loved the latest entry! Your entries really open my eyes. How do you find all these places you link to? They are always so interesting. The lynching one in particular was horrifying. I know it's the past but it's amazing how easily people sweep things under the carpet that just don't suit. It's shocking that human beings can be so cruel. I've never understood why white people did and still do have such a hatred for black people. Then again, I just don't understand hatred of anyone and anything different. I adore other cultures and the people of them. Even in this country, there are constant fights, beatings and murders all in the name of "religion". The hatred between catholics and protestants in my country is appauling. I'll never understand why human beings have to hate something. Ah well. I'll stop taking up all the room on your notes page! Many hugz to you!

I did but then it said you were lookin for links and to come back- so now I did. I can never get your comments to open when I am at home :( very nice rant!

Oh, and he also said: "When angry, count to four; when very angry, swear." Wise man!
from avalonte :
Remember recently when we discussed how sometimes you just have to swear. And how some people say swearing shows a lack of vocabulary. Well, there was an old quote that I wanted to share with you at the time, but I couldn't remember it in its entirity, nor who had actually said it. But, I finally remembered who it was and managed to find the quote for you. "In certain trying circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity furnishes a relief denied even to prayer." - Mark Twain.

thanks for the note. mike, on of my roommates is an alpha male. his way of dealing, is to say "well what do you want me to do about it now." when it's already in progress, making it all about the other person. i get pissed for awhile then get over it.
from b0b0 :
oh thank you for the kind notes- sorry to have shattered your image of me. Most the time I am the little housewife type- but not on the weekends. We just had a blast! This time of year along the Mississippi is just bueatiful! You come visit me anytime! I wish I had a better camera with me to get the turtles- they were so funny- I am going down this weekend too- with better equip and a zoom (since they dont let ya get too close) hopefully I will come back with some decent pics- oh and muskrats too- they are quite acrobatic in the water- Thank you again for the notes- btw I love the fishy drawing- super cute!

Good point, there! After ruling out all orthopedic causes, spinal or brain damage, or other nasty things, I DID finally understand what was going on and that DID lead to my ultimate healing. It cost me $6,000 (I didn't have any health insurance at the time, but some wonderful doctors did treat me for free and for that I shall be ever grateful, there certainly ARE some great ones out there), but it definitely was worth it. Speaking of medical issues, somebody at work who has a very elderly dog told me that there are some pain relief pills for dogs with heavy arthritis. Her dog is a 120-pound Laborador Retreiver, a very, very sweet dog who hurts like hell whenever he tries to get some exercise. She says the pills really do help him.

I'm sending you a cuddle so you don't have to leave the house! Also, I think you and I are on the same street with keeping in touch. I'm not really very good at it these days! I'm always forgetting, or have something else to do or...well, the list goes on and on! I wanted to post a note to you the other day and for some reason or other, it didn't happen but I love your dog! She's just unbelievably adorable. I felt an urge to stick my arms into my screen and squish her! That's a wee shame for her on her walks. She looks roughly how I feel after my trying to get up and down the stairs in our house! Despite the pain, it's good to keep them active so don't feel rotten about it. As long as you don't tie her to the back of a truck and drive away, you've no reason to feel bad! She's absolutely gorgeous though. Also, I'm in complete agreement with the supersize thing. As long as the fries you order are named 'large' regardless of the fact they are the same size as the 'supersize', you'll not gain weight. Yeh, in Ronald McDonald's seriously freaky land maybe. It's just the usual. Corporate greed taking advantage of the uninformed. I think they've got a pact with private hospitals to be honest with you. Something along the lines of "We'll keep making em bigger, and you can charge an arm and leg when they come screaming to you that they can no longer fit through their doorways." Hey, I should stop ranting on your note page! Sorry! :o)
from pitbullshark :
I didn't say doctors weren't GENIUSES, I said they weren't GODS. What distinguished Crichton from the other doctors was that he told it like it is (as he saw it, anyway), i.e. "the emperor has no clothes" and that not only made him smarter, but more ethical, too. He's really quite a fascinating man and his observations are quite good, I'd be surprised if you didn't like him (but maybe you should skip the medical school part and go to the other things). For example, he said that neurology was one branch of medicine in which THERE IS NO MEDICAL CURE FOR ANYTHING, it is strictly diagnostic. And wouldn't you know it, I ended up with a serious neurological condition that resulted in a paralyzed left arm for almost half a year. I ended up with a DIAGNOSIS, as Crichton said. My diagnosis was "a single demylenative episode." But there was no medical cure. However, my BODY cured it on its own and everything is fine, now. But neurology could offer nothing but the diagnosis. These things really aren't worth arguing, because I'm not saying "this is what you should do and that is not what you should do," but "this sounds fascinating and is worth investigating." The only way to argue against that is to say, "no it doesn't sound fascinating and I WON'T investigate it," to which I can only reply, "fine, well don't then." I am not a pregnant woman and will never have to face this issue, and if I were married and my wife were pregnant and she didn't want to do any of this stuff, then she wouldn't have to. As for me, I generally avoid taking any kind of medications that are to give me "relief" when what they are really doing is slowing down the process, especially when it slows down the healing process. However, I am sure if the pain were horrible enough, I would succumb to taking the medications, at least to some degree. I do not think people should feel guilty for doing this. Regarding futuristic travel (not so futuristic, as the space shuttle does this all the time) going up and then coming back down, you wouldn't really be going straight up from the point of view of a flat map, it would seem like an angle in a westward direction. You may start in Montreal, but as you went up, Montreal would keep moving eastward. Once you were out of the Earth's atmosphere, you would be in a vaccuum, a realm with no forces against you. You could just shut off all engines and you would stay in one spot without any expenditure of energy. Then at the appropriate time, you would come back down, and the earth would still be moving eastward. Finally you would drop down in Seattle. I think the entire flight path would end up being a parabola. Whether it would save time or not, I can't say; maybe the ship would have to keep moving up in space to keep ahead of that one-time-zone-an-hour planet speed. The key is being beyond the earth's atmosphere where there are no forces to push against. You should see some of the satellites my father designed and that were put up into space during the 60s and 70s. They had immensely long solar cell arrays just sticking out from the satellite bodies. "What holds them up?" I asked him, and he said "Nothing needs to. There is noting to pull them out of place, no wind, no gravity, they just stay exactly where we put them." Pretty cool stuff. Also, the "primitive" person stuff, that's not worth arguing, either, it's "Republicans" vs "Democrats" or maybe "Capitalists" versus "Socialists" or "Israel" versus "Palestine" or "Atkins low carb" versus "Pritikin low fat", just one of those things that are somehow "organic" beliefs and the twain will never meet. I do not accept that primitive people's lives were "violent, brutish, and short," in fact, just the opposite, and there are SO MANY scientists, anthropologists, archaeologists, explorers, etc. who put forth the propositions that I believe, such as Daniel Quinn, Thor Heyerdahl, Bruce Chatwin, Morris Berman, Weston Price. Daniel Quinn said it best, I think, and here I am paraphrasing the gist of it: "After the human species survived for untold tens of thousands of years doing things the tribal, nomadic way, we now find ourselves due to our hubris in a 747 that is in the middle of a nose dive heading straight down for an immense crash and burn. Right now, we feel completely blissful and unaware; we're laughing and drinking or watching the in-flight movie or maybe peacefully snoozing, but we have about a thousand feet left." Well, I have gotten on that plane willingly and I have not put on a parachute and jumped out so if we have such a crash and burn, I will fry along with all the rest of us. But I'm not drinking or laughing or watching the inflight movie or snoozing, I'm nervously fingering the straps of the parachute and thinking hmmm, gee, uhm, is this such a good idea, where's the door, can I work the emergency hatch, uhm, yeah....

I think INSECTS would just about do ANYBODY in...except for those bee keepers who think its funny to make themselves a "bee beard". To do something like that would kill me within two seconds. I once had a running battle with ants in my kitchen that nearly drove me to delerium tremens. No matter what kind of poison, trap, or bait I used, I'd go into the kitchen and think that I had entered into some kind of hellish black light Christmas show. You know the tiny white Christmas lights that move along the eaves of houses, well that's what it looked like I had all over my kitchen walls, across the counters, in a path across the floor, and around every corner, except in REVERSE--it was blank ants, a solid black HOLE of ants. But I didn't give up and you'll never guess what finally worked: capsicum (red papper). I sprinkled that completely around the perimeter of the kitchen and the ants, all 197 billion of them, disappeared and never came back. Eventually during house cleaning, I got rid of all the capsicum, but by then the entire ant population of Los Angeles County had expired in a red hot explosion. Natural stuff, yeah, it is what works, whereas the chemicals and poisons nearly drove ME out.

The apartment building where I live has a pool. This is California, remember. Los Angeles. Hell yeah, we have a pool! Ha ha ha, my technology DOES scare Bob, but he has NEVER seen it. He just HEARS about it, and that scares him. When I told him I was networking my computers he, of course, didn't understand what I was talking about, but he kept saying "aren't you afraid you're going to blow up your apartment?" "No, why?" I'd respond. And he'd talk about fuses and circuit breakers and "all that electricity," as if I were installing a power company substation. It is kind of funny. He, of course, can't even hook up a VCR. He bought a new DVD player and then didn't know what to do with the two wires. He called me and asked me if I would come over and hook it up for him. I said "sure". When I got there, he was sitting on the floor surrounded by wires, crying. He had taken apart every single wire required to hook up his entire stereo and entertainment system. What should have taken me all of two mintutes ended up requiring me to re-hook up every component, that is, once I finished untangling all of the spaghetti. I had fantasies of showing HIM how to do it, but he took the opportunity to go to the drug store to buy himself some tranquilizers.

friday was a lazy day for me, i'd seen everything there is to see on the internet so the next stop for a slacker like me was the surveys pages. The moisturiser gag was indeed from an advert for Olay, and although i don't use it i do look 5 yrs younger than i am ( which is nice ) i put it down to laughing a lot. to be honest the BCR and Petula were a little before my time but I've picked up a fair amount of general knowledge in the passing years between my birth and now. We were all poor in the seventies except for the dentists and politicians, my dad, although a proper techie thru and thru still had a large mortgage and two small children to look after but certainly since i could walk i can remember the colour logo for bbc2 on the screen. the 4 digit numbers were in Vertical circa 1980 for local numbers, my mates house had a 4 digit code, that rapidly increased to 5 and then 6 numbers within a few years, ah the glory days of simple youth. 8-track was completely replaced by audio tape by the time I could tell the difference. Cained ( caned ) noun: cayn'd - the state of mind having ingested a large qty and variety of illegal drugs while dancing all night to hard dance music. ok so i'm a little scatty, i would like my ashes to be scattered high up but that would probably remove the need for a tombstone, but i had to answer your questions so some answers may contradict just a little. women like sex toys, gay men like sex toys, i don't need vibrators or dildo's while I have a working right hand. I can't think of a situation where i would roleplay being a kid again, i don't need to regress to play act at being a spaceman i can do that while retaining my adult aura. i think 100&1000's are called sprinkles or possibly jimmy's ? ( i got that from an episode of the simpsons ) they're tiny multicoloured balls of sugar you can sprinkle over cakes n icecream ( or just pour into your mouth straight from the pot )stay funky mes amis ;o)
from pitbullshark :
Yes, you may use my answer to question 13 in the aging survey, if you like. Thank you for your good comments! I agree (and understand) that all physical things do have entropy (I think it is called), although the timing of it may be accelerated or deaccelerated greatly. There was a famous experiment done of chicken cells that were kept irrigated of their metabolic wastes. There is a normal life expectancy of chicken cells (I forget what it is, six years, maybe?), but when their wastes were cleared away, well, they just never died, the scientists simply ended the experiment after something like twenty years, having to conclude only that such cells would live "indefinitely". It was an artificial environment, of course, what with this rapid removal of the toxins, but it did show that conditions could be changed to improve cell viability. Speaking of body wastes, I have read that the milk from Holstein cows, the ones that have the greatest output of milk thanks to their being specially bred that way and that is the kind most used in commercial dairies, just dump nearly everything they've got into their "milk" in order to have such a volume of output. That means that that milk has some urine, some lyphatic fluids, and other waste dumped in there, which definitely couldn't be too good. Jersey cows are pretty much the same cows they have always been, so their milk is preferable due its being really MILK. Plus, it's the richest, most delicious milk! I have also read that in order to utilize the proteins, calcium, etc. that is the milk, the body fat (the cream) is essential in the metabolic process, but (a) skimming the cream OFF obviously REMOVES the cream, so non-fat milk defeats the purpose of drinking the milk in the first place, and (b) pasteurizing (i.e. cooking) the milk and homogeinizing it alters and destroys the construction of the fatty acids in the whole milk, and therefore makes it unusable in the absorption of the nutritious aspects of milk. That is why I drink raw whole Jersey milk, and believe me, one glass fixed my knee joint problem immediately. A useful link for you to check out is this very radical but I think useful site: http://www.westonaprice.org/ I realize that information about various foods, diets, etc. can drive people to blows (I think the Atkins high-fat low-carb people and the high carb-low fat people are the modern version of the Hatfields and the McCoys, or are like Israel and Palestine), and this site will either be revelatory or viewed as crackpot, so all I can say if something sounds worth investigating, try it out, and if something seems wacko, then ignore it.

"So what do you think of " the idea that the world population of humans would be cut by 2/3 in the next 30 years"?? Well, I would answere that with that I think it would be a good thing because then plants and animals would reclaim more of the land. And that would be the good side I would find. I dont know. I am sleepy and cant think of a better response. Sorry. I do believe that if there were not enough "bodies" be them animal, man or plant for all the souls that were around before some global catastropy- well, they would spend however long needed in limbo- theres a Buddhist word for it but it escapes me at this time. In this limbo stage between lives you are punished or not for the way you have lived your last life. Example, if you are a greedy person then in the limboy time you are a creature with a pin hole diameter mile long neck constantly haveing to eat and yet never being satisfied- thats one example I always remember from my teachings. I should be less greedy - cause that would suck. ANyhoo, I am done messing with my template now. I just wanted to drop a note here- I must go to bed. PS I showed that Bush Knew thing to my anarchist hubby and he said that there are all these reports saying that Bush admin tried to impliment this supposed "democratic" governtment over yonder that is friendly with our oil companys but couldnt justify it. And so they allowed 9/11 to happen and possibly incouraged it so they could begin their money makeing war on terror/ wouldnt doubt it.

from zaziel :
Ah, hell, that didn't work , did it? I'll have to send you an email.
from zaziel :
The simplest way is to use textarea tags. Type <textarea> before the code you want to appear on your page, then close it by typing </textarea> after it. This creates a box with the code inside it, examples of which you can see here: http://zaziel.diaryland.com/babyback.html --Queen Trixie and I created The Fallen before I learned about the textarea tag, so the Fallen page is done differently, by using escape codes for the symbols < and >. This is done by typing an ampersand plus the escape code plus a semicolon. Thus for every < in your code you must type < (that's an "L" not a "1") and for every > you type > --You might find this a bit laborious and I discovered I needed to keep a text file of the entire Fallen page, because when I add new members, I have to re-enter all the escape codes again. This is really no problem for me, because I habitually write my diary entries in text files before I post them. And of course, when I say "text" I mean plain ol' ASCII text.
from sleepyzoe :
We do have one of those consignment thrift shops...it's called Plato's Closet (remember I bitched about it in a previous entry...where they only gave me 20 bucks for several hundred dollars worth of clothing?). I can go to Target and buy NEW clothes for some of the prices they charge. They've gotten pricey pricey over the past couple years, and a lot of their stuff is crappy. So I don't shop there too often. I have sold almost all of my clothes that don't fit...on ebay. I made a lot more money that way, just not enough to replenish how much I've sold/given away. And I do buy lots of books and music...but I always buy them on half.com, or Half Priced Books (at a fraction of the retail cost), so I never feel guilty about that. :)
from b0b0 :
I know what you are saying and I agree with you in nearly every aspect. Just to touch on- like the chickens living boxes until their beaks and legs rot off - I only eat range free eggs- unless I am at a resturant- then what can you do... I do what I can but am not going to live souly on bees wax and in a mud hut to avoid hurting any animals- although the mud hut might kill a few worms. I also am not saying that animals could not become elightened- especially like you say - elephants and some of the other highly intelligent animals- its just that its much harder. I only mentioned pigs because they are a common food item. And there is no where (cept maybe parts of the deep ocean) that at least cameras havent been- thats what I meant by seeing animals- I am not a bumbling happy happy that is niave to the horrors of what is going on. I just try to find the good in every situation. If you had asked instead what I thought about the idea that the world population of humans would be cut by 2/3 in the next 30 years- I would have nearly the same answere as I did to the animal question. I am sorry to have caused all this ruckus. - are we exchangeing ideas and discussing this or are we argueing and you think I am an evil animal poacher- I hope discussing- but it is hard to tell in text- ♥

I know what you mean. But I went through the abuse and depression and also watched my children literally starve because I couldn't make enough money to support us.

No problem, moment of hope and delusion effectively smashed, and appropriately so.

Eurgh, I don't believe it! I'd left you a super long message and when I clicked 'done!', I got taken to a stupid Cannot Display Page and lost the whole lot. Basically, I was saying that I went to that Bush Knew link and there was a lot of that I didn't know. It was shocking and a real eye opener for me. Also, being someone who loves to draw, I adore looking at your sketches. Each new one I see amazes me more. It must be great to be so talented! Every one of your characters just seem to be bursting with life. Just fantastic. And thanks for the link to the botany page! I adore botany.

While I completely agree with you, The Husband and I have unwillingly heard, through our window, details on their relationship that would assure you that she is, in fact, Cruella.

Oh my, no not what I meant- what I mean by that is that being Buddhist and believing in enlightenment and reincarnation - all living things have the chance no matter how small of becomeing enlightened- however, we are fortunate indeed to be born a human who may read the words of the Buddha and work towards enlightenment and release from the cycle of death and rebirth. That being so, while I love animals and hate that they are being replaced by humans and civilization and I love animals much more then most people I meet- it is a selfish thing for me to want souls to be reborn an animal over and over so that I may enjoy/ see them round. So I know its bad that animals are being killed and slaughtered and their space being taken- I also try to see the good in that they will have a better chance if there are more humans born. I know this is long and will take up big space in notes- please delete when done.- by no means think I want animals to be killed or anything bad. I and a member of the Nature Conservitory as well as I volunteer for many things involving animals such as shortly here will be the turtle crossing in White Water nation park near me where every year tons and tons of turtles need to cross the hyw to breed and are killed... I will be out there with the rest helping them make it and slowing traffic down. I eat only range free eggs and such, I eat no pork because pigs are one of the most intelligent animals that we readily consume and being intelligent and self aware is nessicary for enlightenment- thus I can not eat them just in case they could make it. I am babbling now... sorry to say it so wrong in entry but that is what I meant by big picture plan- at least that is how I believe- dont take this as me trying to preach my religion or beliefs - I try hard never to do that in any way- but I felt I must explain- much love b0b0

Thank you for your kind words my dear. I am glad to get a note from a fellow Dew fan. I have drunk (is that right? drank?) so much Mountain Dew over the course of my life that it courses through my veins instead of blood. I'm also glad you dug the layout. It was inspired by one of the funniest things I have ever seen, a short film called "Rejected." If you would like to laugh your ass off, go to http://sinapse.arc2.ucla.edu/streaming/humor/rejected.wmv. Rock on child.

1) What connection does your diary name have with the Wind in the Willows?? 2) What in your life gets on your nerves most consistently on a daily basis and why? 3) If Diaryland shut down tomorrow, to whom would you turn to share what you share here and why? 1)LOL i had never thought of that but none actually...i love the element of the wind and weeping willows are my favorite trees so i put the two together. 2)People who try to force their ideas on me or try to make me see the error of my ways...such as my coworkers and my parents lol 3)I would find a different diary place but I would definitely share with my girl who reads this anyway.

Gotcha! Great points and great idea for a comic! Perfect for here in Japan where they use comics to teach a lot of things. "Burnables" isn't a recycling bin, but rather just another trash can for what would be translated as "raw garbage." It refers to stuff like food, peelings, used tissues, etc. As for the Kool-Aid, we even had that special Kool-Aid pitcher shaped like Mr. Kool Aid!
from sasori-gal :
I know...I am guilty of succombing to the convenience and bad influences of fast foods. *spank* The vending machines are quite a luxury, but Japan does work hard at recycling everything. In addition to all the vending machines, they also have separate trash cans for plastics, PET bottles, cans, bottles, milk cartons, non-burnables, and burnables to encourage recycling. (I'll have to take a photo of all the different trash bins next time!)

poy is pieces of you, its a diaryland thing. on my links page you will find a poy link. as to the man, he says he wouldnt drink if he had a decent home to come home to, and my answer has always been, your home would be decent if you didnt drink. its just a circle the alcholic makes to justify their drinking. I am the reason he drinks, you know.... and the memories... i dont believe you have them when you are reborn, but some things come back to you when you need them, or a situation warrants it... kind of one of those revelation things... just my opinion...

When I've been faced with not knowing the gender, I bring something in all primary colors or -- personal fave -- maroon, which looks good on either and isn't yet another pastel. Alternatively, I paint angel wings on the back of a "onesie" and "Deity in Training" on the front.
from onewetleg :
i agree about huck finn. it's like twain was trying to make a point about racism in the book but didn't quite make it. i believe in his own way he was very forward thinking, actually believing that blacks were human and not just animals. a really good work of his is 'corn-pone opinions.' about forming your own opinion and not just thinking something because it is the popular way to think. i found it timeless and funny. mark twain's good outweighs his bad, in my own opinion.

my goodness! You got a lot of books for a little money! Milk crates make interesting bookcases.

So I finallly saw the pictures of your folded underwear. I really admire you, ya know it, because you have such lovely organizational skills. My brain just doesnt work like that though, my brain says to me "throw stuff anywhere you can, that way you can see it all!" I'm a little embarassed to admit this, but I don't even fold any of my clothes. I lay them on a chair and leave them there until I want to wear them. But TOWELS, on the other hand, must be folded neatly and set on top of each other the exact same way. All the folds must be facing out. We are all strange in our own little ways. you rock. good night.

LOL, I've actually emailed you twice, I believe, and my email is listed on my entries in your guestbook, I think - it asks for it every time. :) But I'll still email you again and give you a couple of VR spots I hang out in :)
from avalonte :
Haha! I didn't take your comments to mean you thought ears were ugly! I just thought that photo made my ear look ugly! Thanks for your comments. And, I don't know, what the hell is going on with our comments thing, saying 0??! Weird and annoying!
from radiogurl :
We've got a few plants out front - not sure how well they'll grow, will depend on 00 and Pipeboy to care for them, because I frankly don't have time :-s But the honeysuckle is thriving, which is a good sign, and hopefully the other plants will survive, too. We have gotten more rain this year than last, so here's hoping that the weather is cooperative. It normally gets so hot by June that anything planted is burned out, even this high in the mountains.

wenchela! have you noticed that other people with supergold comments aren't showing the number of comments either? like loopyboi? i suggest writing an email to dland support. click on help section and faqs and be sure to mention you are a gold member. you get answers faster that way. love,
from onewetleg :
i could see your underwear just fine at one thirty this afternoon and i can see them just fine now. hehe. but diaryland was acting awfully slow at one thirty. it seems to be ok now. i also noticed that in that menu on the left there <--- there were some changes that have now changed back. it had a listing for 'get a guestbook' and 'get a notifylist.' but now it is the way it always is. hmmm. looks like andrew was tweeking it around a little and it didn't work. je ne sais pas. love,
from olive4ever :
My alarm went off at the time you posted your entry and went to bed. And I went to the gym and worked out -- good both of us. Loved your elaborate and right-on rant about music -- I really appreciate the way you think, and the opinions you express, and as a second-generation musician (jazz, classical and rock, lots of recordings) I nodded vigorously at your assertion that listening to (or reading, for that matter) an artist's development is incredibly valuable. Brava.

I gotta tell you, I just love the "Feminist Quote of the Day" you put up. Bravo! Thanks for the great memories of your Grandma's cooking at my place - very sweet :) I still can't figure it out: my maternal Grandmother, from the land of Uber-Chefs (Italy) could burn Cheerios. My paternal grandmother, the only non-Italian in the clan, and from culinarily challanged ENGLAND for gods sake, could make a plate of dirt taste good. She was actually the one to teach my mom how to cook, out of fear for her son's safety. But there ya go. Thanks again - luv ya, Wenchy...even if you don't need me as yer stinkin' boyfriend....
from meeyapede :
I'm off to take the quizes (and praying to get in the mid-90s on "militant feminist"- GRRR!) and hope you got to that hookah last night. Meanwhile, re: your dead on "enemy of my enemy" note- I totally agree, and think it's scary in the extreme that John "I hear the voice of God, and it's singing barbershop!" Ashcroft and I would agree on ANYTHING. The problem I'm having is finding non-right-wingers who're really working to break up the choke-hold the porn industry has on our culture. C'mon: you've got the feminist cred- you've got to know some places/people I can turn to. (Besides old school theorists; I'm taking present day action, not talk). Eh? Advice, my dearest wenchie?

the longest entry bout Sophie is on my older page down a few titled Crushin Hard...- its also http://b0b0.diaryland.com/040327_19.html and I think most people..at least here, eat ham for Easter...well, at least everyone I know. Thank you for all the kind notes of late. I wish you had someone to tackle projects with too! You will find them, I know it! - ♥

Yes, the TwisterJester.com site is mine - it's my experimental spot, lets me try out things I use on the studio website. Next project will probably be a poll, since Boss wants to add that to the radio station site. :)

i think the town brittanya was refering to was in oregon. they stopped all marriages untill some kind of something yadayada. ask thedevlyn he lives in washington. i think it may have been portland oregon. happy i am. got to see my bestest friend. love,

WooHoo! A comic devoted to my jail time? Freakin-A! What do you need me to do, besides give more details. I did leave out other things for lack of time. Btw, they did manage to get in touch with my parents and they actually visited with me the second night, which was kind of freaky.
from brittanya :
Yeah, and one more thing, "opine" is a great word! I looked it up recently because Bill O'Reilly always says it. He also says bloviate, and that is also a great word. O'Reilly has a show on Fox News called The Factor. Politicians come on there and he talks to them...the whole idea is that its a "no spin zone". Thats what he says. I hate politics, but I love Bill O'Reilly. The show is not aired in CAnanda because O'Reilly says Canadians have a problem with freedom of speech. So thats that. Have a good day!
from brittanya :
Wow, I had no idea it took 7-10 years to adopt. I knew it was a long drawn out process, but damn. I applied for this job and i was reading up on the benefits they offer and stuff. Anyways, they will actually pay for some of the costs of adoption and they will help you through the process. Isnt that great? I never really thought about adoption...it must be frusturating to have to wait and wait and have them pry into your life and want to know every detail about you. They want to know sexual preference and if you are married. Of course they will want happy little married couples to adopt, but if you are gay they you wont even be able to get married. Even if you have someone who you are in love with and you have a perfectly stable home life and such. So thats just bogus and it makes me angry. There was a town somewhere here in the states that banned marriages altoghether. Isn't that funny? I mean, its wrong to just up and ban marriage but its friggin hilarious. It makes such a point of how ignorant people are. Marriage means love, just let them get married if they choose. I always fight with my stepdad about this because he thinks its wrong for gay people to be married because it says in the bible or some shit that its wrong. I just have to laugh every time I hear his side of the argument because he sounds so damn silly. Anyways, I know some people that adopted a little girl from the philippines and she is stinkin' cute. And I wish you the best of luck. I got rid of my Antennae Galaxy background picture stolen from NASA. I thought it was making my page load slow so I took it away and now my page still kinda loads slow. So I don't know. I was bored with it anyways.

from dreamsongs :
i saw your two new surveys, they look great! however, i want to make sure i have time to do them justice, so i am waiting til i have a good block of time to sit down and fill them out myself. hopefully this block of time will materialize before the weekend, since i'm going out of town! be seeing you.
from cailliath :
Muaha! I KNEW you would pick me up on the answers to those questions. I guess in my head, becoming a multi-millionaire IS infinitely more possible than having children since that's just a complete physical impossibility for me. And I think I'm correct in remembering the same situation exists for you too. Of course, I guess you're right. They chances of me ever having a pet monkey are rather slim yet I still imagine having a pet monkey. I guess I'm just weird, lol!
from serenaville :
Thank you so much for the great comment in my space! I'm glad you clicked over from Evil's diary, she's one kickass woman, straight up. Rest assured, the entry that was mentioned for deletion was not the FGM one, but the entry I'd posted after that with some audio clips within. No major deal, just some second thoughts. :) Hope you decide to return soon! Take care. :)

Yes, yesterday was truly a horrid day and i hope to never have a repeat of it ever again! i still don't know when i'll be able to look back on it and laugh for i'm still so sore i can barely move! And yes, i am very lucky to have Master in my life. He takes care of me and while He may not be very demanding as some can be, He is still my Master and i obey Him. i love Him very much and He loves me. As i've said, i'm very lucky to have Him in my life.

yes, i did recieve your email. thank you so much for the screen shots. i forwarded it to lizard layouts just a second ago. i hope to recieve a response. i did it all nice like cuz i don't want to seem mad. i'm nowhere near mad. just sad. i was lovin that design. i'm going to leave it up for now until i hear something from liz. still no email. bummer. yahoo is acting all silly, too. every once in a while when i log on it will say: error in receiving your email a refresh may help... or some such nonsense as that. ok. i go read buddy list and forget all my problems for a while. beer and diaryland, it's my very own speedball. hehe. love,
from xbystanderx :
:) hiya. it.s xquisitepain. i missed you.
from onewetleg :
that's strange that you can't see the design in netscape. part of the reason i picked the design site is because the owners were very adamant about the fact that the templates could be seen in any browswer. this makes me upset. and yes, i do try to aggravate the cat. it's fun. merowr! hiss. love,

Thanks for allowing me to take your survey and thanks even more for responding to it! You have a great diary and it is filled with so many better thoughts than I can even dream up. good job :)

Wow, Thanks for sharing so much...I have gotten pregnant before but I lost the baby due to getting beaten by the father...the doctor says that since then and because of that and my rape that I will have a hard time conceiving again and that I should just give up...the sad thing is that i tell people that the career that i have always wanted is to be a mom and my gf and i do plan to adopt but it seems like that is always when we have done this or that and i know that i am young enough to still to adopt but i sincerely understand the longing for a child...sorry this was so long! lol Rowan

i put the warning thing up because i thought the kids were reading my diary. i was right, the kid was, i dont think the dude actually goes into diaryland though, but i did replace it on my profile page. FORENSICS is a competition of speaking, dramatic readings, scenes from plays, in groups or alone. our forensics used to include a debate team, but they dont do that any more. our school has a huge forensics team, which i think is why they win so often....

from second-love :
Hey, no prob! I like surveys. And really, age has never been an issue with me. I have often lost track of how old i am only to discover i've been saying im one age and being off by a year or so!! hahahaha. I know that sounds goofy, but i really dont give it much thought. I guess i still FEEL like im 16 or 22 or 29... just depending on what im going through! And on the motorcycle thing... you might be right... i may end up one day with the big bike and the full dress in the front etc LOL - thats the kind of bike SAM has and i LOVE to ride on the back with him. BUT for now... my little sportster with the LOUD pipes and the HOT vibration is good enough for me!

Well, I am happy lol work is so boring some nights and I love diaryland it keeps me occupied. I have a thing for surveys and yours always make me think so thanks againÖ I actually notice the scars on my hands and my skin looks old my nails and stuff on my hands for feet I notice that they ache more lol I want to be with my girl forever I know that and I think we have a good chance we have known each other for so long 13 years actually and we have been thru all our exís together as friends first before we decided to dateÖand we have been together now for 4 years and married the last year of that...we will see lol Thanks again, ~Willow

from im2evil4u :
No, I don't feel 'that' way anymore. I took a very long, restless nap when I made it home. Maybe I wasnít ďsleepingĒ, perhaps it was a panic attack - I've had a few of those, although they were nothing like the incident this evening. It could have been pure exhaustion, I have been extremely tired lately, and that is very unlike me. Depression is likely, considering the circumstances I am dealing with at work. Iím going to see how the next week goes, I am off the following week and I might see a doctor if anything usual happens.
from manchmal :
I seriously love your surveys. The latest one seemed very timely. I was going to take the 'memory' one, because that interests me, too, but I don't think i remember very many of your events.

I ride a motorcycle!!!! A Harley to be exact, and I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE it. It is my passion! I've only been riding since last October and made a silly error myself in the classes that caused me to fail the first try... but i went back and passed the second time. Now, anytime you are going to do something even somewhat "dangerous", your mind will find every news story et al about motorcycle accidents...AND you will hear EVERY motorcycle horror story there is. Truly the statistics show there are no more motorcycle accidents then cars!!! Ya do only live once and there IS nothing like it!!!! I highly recommend it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!XXXOOO

Hmm, that Bambi in '42 is a puzzler. I must've seen a rerelease, because I know I went to the theater w/ my mom and hid when Papa Buck was so cruely mowed down by the Evil Hunter Man. Damn, that and Dumbo set the stage for my vegetarian future. Hmm, ok, I looked it up and it seems Bambi was rereleased in...1988?!? When I was ELEVEN? No fucking way.

sometime shortly after moving to chicago, i wandered down the hot sunny street (this was either pre-employment or on a weekday they decided i didn't have to come in) to a chain music store (since closed) where i bought gin blossoms' new miserable experience for $1.99 and kylie minogue's (then new) fever used. for weeks afterwards my tagline was "why kylie?" because it seemed such a random thing for me to buy.

i have a friend, who is my longest friend, who i hang out with when i visit my son in indy. one weekend this friend said he wouldn't be there, but in canada instead. i said ok, and we met up the next time. later, he wrote me, saying: "angela, the reason for canada," though i can't remember the rest. thus, for the rest of their relationship i thought of her as the reason for canada. i don't even really remember her name. when they broke up, i decided canada no longer served any purpose. all of this is part of my private mental cosmography, and has no real meaning to anyone else.

I do so enjoy women who can write, spell and are evil, although you wouldn't necessarily know it from my name! Glad you enjoyed the bandana entry, although I assure you, a chihuahua bandana isn't appropriate, either. I had plenty of bandanas on hand to work with, since I flag red left and right, yellow right, hunter green left and right, black left and right and a few other things. There are some things I'd flag, but I can't bring myself to use the joke flagging systems I've read about.
from spritopias :
I appreciate your comment but my point wasn't that religions weren't open or inclusive, just that when decide "I believe this" that you're saying, "this is truth" and "this is what I believe." I think a lot people don't really pick a religion or a philosophy, they just assume a social acceptable label.
from hissandtell :

Hey thanks for finding me and for your comments on my photos. The last six, including the tiger are my favorites. He is so sad and reflective.

I can understand where you're coming from, but the situation is very different. Because of K's condition, she will always need to be put first. Our life is arranged around hospital visits, and doing things she can manage. It would be hard for a siblling. I have a friend who grew up with a brother with Down's Syndrome, and the associated health problems, and she hated it. She is nearly 40, and still holds some resentment over her childhood, even though she adored her brother. As for K, she is terrified by loud noises. Especially babies screaming! And it's not as though she misses out on the joy of babies, as lots of my friends have babies, and she helps out with them and plays with them. So, really she has the best of both worlds.

i was thinking about the pjs with feet- I have two pair- an older pair with penguins all over them- but they dont fit good anymore! Its very hard to find adult jammys like that! As for the will thing- I have a bad ticker- its better now days but all through school it liked to stop going - so when i turned 18 I was advised I make one up- mostly because I have a little sister- shes 11 now- but at the time she was just a little thing and my mother has tons of health problems- they keep telling her shes gonna die in the next 2 years- they have been saying that for 10 years now- point I am coming to is that was at the time my mother had it set up that I would become my sisters guardian if she died. SO for that reason I got all my business in order so that if for some freak reason I died right after my mom or something- my sister wouldnt go to her father- hes a bad person- but if no one was set up to take over he would get her by genetic default- anyhoo....I love your surveys- I have been pacing myself so that I can take some each day! Have a great weekend-♥

jeepers- the more I think about it - (the dabogirl/god thing) the stranger I think it is. Hey, did you konw taht as lnog as all the lteters of a wrod are prsenet, and the frsit and lsat are in the crorcet palce taht our biarns hvae lttile tourlbe. Just thinking about the whole spelling thing again.
from b0b0 :
eegads! I think this gal is a bit messed up. She has got things all weird. I read all the messages and the survey answeres- I cant understand her note way down there on this page either- I do know, that her name is dabogirl- making me think star trek then I go to her diary and its titled trekkie chick- ok - then I go in diary and its all about God- dabo girls on star trek are the present day equivalent of a hoar/black jack dealer- bit of a strange name for a Godly gal. No offense intended toward either star trek of peoples gods- I just think this gal is talking out her ass a bit and when you called her on it she tried to babble her way out of it. Anyhoo.....♥
from wench77 :
well, I'll write the message to dabogirl in my own notes rather than continue to "argue"... I don't understand why giving examples is arguing but whatever. Can anyone else read down a few notes and tell me what the heck it sounds like dabogirl is saying?(and who knew she was Christian? she has never said... and who says Christian means ANYTHING about gays or kids... I know Christian lesbian parents)...To me it sounds like she is saying that if a lesbian is raising a girl the girl will turn out straight. Unless she beats the girl. What does that MEAN?? That if a lesbian mother beats a girl the girl will turn out lesbian instead of straight? Or alternatively, does dabogirl mean that if a lesbian has a girl, that means the lesbian is straight? Now that's an oxymoron. A straight lesbian. I don't think if someone doesn't understand your note it means that person is not paying attention, nor that they don't care, nor that they are "arguing" if they try to figure out what you are saying. Hmmm. byebye confusing dabogirl. And don't judge all single mothers by one who had horrid boyfriends. tah.
from dabogrl :
Apparently, you weren't paying attention to what I was trying to say. Since it doesn't matter to you what I believe (Christian), I think that this matter should just stop right here. I really don't want to argue with you. Please.
from b0b0 :
Thank you for all the notes. Yes my template is having a lot of troubles right now. But alas I am stuck at work - without my html for dummy book- I will get it working tonite (I hope)ya have all those pets and then a couple more that I need to update- I just got the sugar glider, I need to add a photo of my kitten and I rescued a tortoise and a baby beardy in the last few months! GOt to go pretend I am working now- bye
from b0b0-review :
oh silly, I am a horrible speller. Thank you for correcting me- I ran it through several spell checkers- those mistakes had not come up. And I thank you for the entry- As the whole older page thing- I dont know whats up with that! I changed the colors on it yesturday and that change still has not gone into effect. Something is slow and weird about it. I hope you dont mind but I have added you as a favorite on my main diary- b0b0-
from brittanya :
Touche, by the way.
from brittanya :
Yes, you most definetly made sense. I was actually expecting the kind of response I got from you to come from JJ. There are two factors for me to think about here, morality and legality. Yes it is stealing and yes it is illegal. But is it NASA and they do have billions and billions of dollars. And these dollars probably come from taxpayers but I could be totally wrong. So if NASA wants to kick my ass then I will be cool and take away the picture. The truth is, I am absolutely enamoured with astronomy, but that is beside the point. But anyways, obviously it is morally wrong to steal from NASA and it is also morally wrong to put up a picture like that on diaryland when I'm not a gold member. I know Andrew has to pay to keep this site up and I love this site. I just don't want a gold membership, I don't need it. I'm happy with what I have. Kinda like cable tv, you are fine without it, but once you get it you dont want to lose it. If I knew Andrews Mailing address then I would send him a check for fifteen dollars right now. Just for the hell of it. Just because I have my diary because of him and I really enjoy it. If andrew asked me to take the picture off then I would in a second. Anyways, NASA could of made the picture unlinkable or whatever. Trust me, I looked at tons of pictures. Obviously its a big deal, stealing pics off websites and such. Nasa has a glitch in thier system and I took advantage of it. Until they stop me, if they do. And diaryland has a glitch in the system and I took advantage of it as well. What can I say, I live in a capitalist country. ANYWAYS... your first note made me a bit scared and your second note made me laugh. Thanks for the advice, legal and linky! Sorry this was so disorganized, choppy, and probably hard to read. whew.
from dabogrl :
Good point about the parents of gays. Actually, if the lesbian was raising a girl, she would most likely be straight. Unless, of course, the woman beat her, in which case the woman shouldn't have a kid anyway... But I don't think that single women should adopt children, for their own sakes, rather than the child's. I guess my comment about setting the wrong example was really about a single mother I knew once. Her daughter used to come over and spend the night because she was afraid of her mother's boyfriends. I guess I was just venting for my friend.
from b0b0-review :
I am sorry about the link- I didnt know. I found it in an entry so I didnt even think about maybe you didnt want it. I have taken it out of the post- soo soo sorry again!
from b0b0-review :
Your review is up!
from qira :
YAY! Thanks so much for these photos of you in your happy coffeeshop. (typo: coffeeship!) For my money, there's nothing like seeing a girl in her native cafe habitat! Cute, cute, cute!
from misstress :
I'm sorry my site doesn't work properly for you; it's a template. But I'm moving to my own domain soon (and if you keep reading) I hope it won't give you any problems. No, I don't think we know each other personally. Which is a little surprising given how small the "scene" is here. And to clarify, my dog (Simba) wasn't sick, but he's a puppy and we were reluctant to leave him at home, alone, for 2 days as the party was in the country and we couldn't bring him for various reasons. Your comment in my GB will take me longer to respond to, as there is much to digest; for which I thank you.
from charminggirl :
HOnestly I dont think it's so much as an addict. There are many factors into such things, you have to look at their mental well being, the people that have phone sex look at them and see what it is they are lacking--there is always something as a big factor into it. Also look at the levels of hormones especially testosterone. High levels of testosterone cause horniness in both men and women. If hormones are out of wack then so is the behavior such as wanting to fuck or masturbate all the time. You can usually tell these people because of same factors such as a lot of hair growth, acne, etc. So when you say they are addicts that to me is wrong. Other factors need to be looked at and our culture still isnt the best for sharing all this sex talk. We may be open a bit more than we once were but we still have a long way to go. Still I will choose to think that there are no sex addicts instead it's other factors, that people need to be looking at ;) Also most young males lie about sex. Many of them have cheated and girls are just as bad. Have you seen the movie Kids, hell that is what it was like when I was growing up and I was in a small town. Anyway, thanks for the survey, I shall step off my soap box. ;)
from peasantwench :
http://www.ironring.ca/ Explains all. It's for engineers, basically, and in Canada EVERY one who graduates from univeristy in engg wears one. Culty, yes. But hey, they have to take an oath first, so that must make it meaningful. Or it's just funny to watch John fidget with the only jewellery he's every worn and curse the fact he has to wear it till he dies.
from onewetleg :
omg, i just read the note from wtf apologising for calling you sir. very thorough they are. umm. yeah. i made that blue up all by myself. it's #234567. ahahahaha!
from creaturelvr :
Thank you for the note. I have actually been feeling quite sexually liberated lately. You are right, there are people out there who share my desires! Keep it real.

were you me, you'd be more hetero than a right-wing christian homophobe. is that really something you want? -- no getting anal sex becuase there's already a stick up your ass. er, my ass.
from moodymelinda :
eeehh...i have to admit that i fell off in the middle of your last note, but i will read it again when i am awake. I need to say one thing though: I love your notes!! dont stop because i dont get it....be cryptic and wordy....be confusing and funny....Your notes put a smile on my face and i would fade away and dissapear into the fog if you stopped....I am sorry that the tag board only take short notes...
from peasantwench :
Oops, that was supposed to start Hmmm. I think I should go to bed now. Sorry.
from peasantwench :
Him. Having a picture of a male diety makes you a guy. Despite the fact the wench is a completely NON male name. A picture may be worth 1000 words, but it doesn't make up for a lack of brain, I guess. Anyways, from one wench to another: hello!
from wtf-reviews :
I'd like to take the time right now to personally apologize to you. Being that your picture looks like that of a guy's, I called you "sir" and "man". And I truthfully apologize for that. Even though your screen name said "wench" it never really occured to me that you could possibly be a woman. It was a mistake easily made, and with that I hope you can accept my apology. --Evyan, Winterfresh Reviews.
from makeitblack7 :
lol, not that old. too young eh? i probobly know more about fucking ppl than you did at 13!
from qira :
Interesting....another reason some of us use templates is that we're nearly html-illiterate. Still, we like to write, and one day we hope to overcome our cyber-ignorance. One day, one day, I promise, dear wench, that my diary will be accompanied by lovely, VERY personal and unique surroundings! :)
from wtf-reviews :
I've been reading the crazy nonsense that has been going on from both sides of this constant battle. And, thank you, so very much, for clearing everything up for us. But like we said in the other note, we do not want, nor need any of your advice. So I advise you to stop leaving notes in our notebox because they will only be getting deleted. You are the one showing immaturity. If you would have read between the lines of our last note (not the one from Danielle, but the one from Jarani) you would have seen that we wanted to end this teeter-totter of insults and criticism. And we wanted nothing more than that. We want nothing to do with you or your comments, sir, so I AM taking the initiative to talk to you myself, because I haven't said anything yet. But I feel that this is getting out of hand. I must say, that it was a HUGE mistake to even mention our site to you. That was our bad. Next time we "promote" we will screen people a little bit better and know their background so we won't have to go through this again. But the most respectful thing you could have done instead of instigating, quite poorly may I add, was to just say, "No thank you. I'm not interested." And be the better man. Once again, I'm not writing this note to fuel the fire. I'm trying to tell you to stop replying and dismiss it. You are wasting your time, and mine. --Evyan, Winterfresh Reviews.
from dangerspouse :
VERY FUNNY! :)
from dangerspouse :
haHA! Telling you that YOU can't draw kids! Sweet, sweet revenge that you can rub their ignorant faces in it now. Reminds me a bit of a funny story: A few years back, on my previous radio show, I interviewed Joey D of "Joey D and the Starlighters". They'd had a hit in the early 60's called "The Peppermint Twist". In fact, it was #1 here in the States. He told me that at one of their shows in Europe, The Beatles opened for them. After the concert, J,P,G & R crowded around him and asked what he thought of their sound. He said "Boys, get out of music. You have no future here." At least Joey was both humble and funny about it, saying that was the stupidest, worst advice he ever gave, and he was glad they didn't take it. But can you imagine??!
from s-u-s-u :
oh my, that was fast. I saw the star one and the review one, and I checked out your 101 favorite things. I really liked your writing, very literate. Often I find the quality of writing on D-land is very low, or cryptic, or something. I love reading online diaries, finding out about people's lives. I'm always looking for new diaries to read. It was nice to find yours today.
from s-u-s-u :
Hi I stumbled across your diary on the most recently update page. Just wanted to say I really enjoyed reading it, and I look forward to checking in again.
from dangerspouse :
Hi Wenchie! LOL...I loved your note at my place (as usual). "TMI at breakfast" was priceless. Oooh! Oooh! I'm almost a star - do you think someone will be naming me after their ugly progeny someday? I loved that post, btw. Right on - it's all a bunch of Uranus. Hey listen, I'm afraid we're just gonna have to disagree about the whole Healing Touch / Reiki thing. ("...due to lack of education in the area I presume." You presume wrong. My opinions are not off the cuff, but borne of actual study. We've just come to different conclusions, apparently). Anywhoo - get some sleep! :)
from wtf-reviews :
Might I add that once again, if our notes page was for criticism and opinions, I would have gladly left your notes. Just a little defense in regard to what you said in response to Jarani's note. -DANIELLE
from wtf-reviews :
After reading all the "critiquing" and criticizing you have done towards our review page, I am here to say that we are grateful for the constructive criticism, but I'm afraid that when we decided to review diaries, we didn't intend for it to be taken apart by an English professor. Thanks for your professional advice, but we didn't ask for it. Let alone leave it open for someone to put down every original idea expressed in our Bio's and so forth. Though some of the mistakes you pointed out were obvious like the "your" vs. "you're" thing. That is quite understandable. But personally, we aren't interested in your ideas of the things you consider wrong and unprofessional, because they are simply there to express our individuality. And for further notice, we don't want or need your help. We appreciate the time you took to neurotically critique our work, but it was a waste of your time. The reason why your notes were deleted was because it wasn't a request for a review. And you would have known that if you had read the rules page. Ironically, after you have taken apart every inch of our review website, pointing out all it's faults, you too have made a mistake. Please, leave your comments and advice to yourself from now on, unless you'd like to get a review on your diary. But I suggest that you don't even bother. --Jarani, Winterfresh Reviews.
from wtf-reviews :
Well, nice to know that you are 40. Gee, that's cool. I'm 15 but I'm not stupid. And the part in your note where I said "We are promoting our review site.." Yes, that meant I don't read your diary, I clicked on friends of friends of friends and came across yours. Cool, huh?!
from wtf-reviews :
Well, gee, thanks for looking at our site and giving us your opinion! Your notes were deleted along with others, simply because the points of our notes page is for requesting reviews. If it had been written into a guestbook it would not have been deleted. -DANIELLE
from wtf-reviews :
Then you must have a hell of a lot of energy and time to go through all of that. We have things to do also, we were just very excited that we finally got our review site up. -DANIELLE. (there, better?)
from wtf-reviews :
Well. Umm. Thanks for your opinion. I'm sorry that I'm not a perfect typist or a deisgner, for I have been staring at this computer screen all day just trying to get things up and running. I'm still learning everything about html, so as for the layout..I tried. My typing skills are far less than perfect, and I know when to use you're and your. But unfortuenatly, when you've been on a computer for 8 straight hours, words come out wrong. My bad. And we are aware that wtf does mean what the fuck. But wf-reviews made no sense, and we thought that maybe wtf might seem a bit catchier. By the way, I never said I wasn't opinionated, because I am. Oh...I am. :-)
from wtf-reviews :
oops. im retarded.
from wtf-reviews :
Hey! I'm just hear to promote our new review site. If you'd like a review just request! Thanks! :-)

hello, oh i feel loved. :) i loved your survey. lol. im such a slut. yes i fund a porn homemovie company. my dad i rele high up in stock market and so i get alot of his money. yeah, lol. but its cool. your quiz was rele rele fun. lol. if you dont mind me asking, how old are you?
from avalonte :
I deleted because Dave reads! I will also be deleting yesterday's entry! Luckily he only reads at work, so I have until Monday. The fact that he reads also means that I can appear casual and independant, but I know that he knows my true feelings because he's read about them in here! Best of both worlds really! x
from manchmal :
wait wait. I want to know more about the rust paint thing you wrote. I didn't quite understand. Are you saying that if I seal it, I'm never going to be able to paint over it again? I don't know ANYTHING about it, short of what I've read in the past week. The process recommended seems to be to paint this metallic paint, then oxidize it, then stop the oxidization with some product, then seal it. What bad things are going to happen when I do that? :)
from starzero :
that's 100% straight purity. i'm still only 57% pure. i would be lower if i ever did drugs, or if i were more interested in those crazy sex things--or of course i had relations with other men. there was a time when i took purity tests with the idea that i would one day be less pure--even got ideas from the purity tests. my favorite was the insane 500 question one that asked stuff like: have you ever had sex in a box or other surface hanging from a crane. um, what?
from avalonte :
Ah, so maybe it's a Mac kink. All the people I've asked about it, have pc's, and everything fits fine for them. And don't worry, I know it's not really a problem as such, I was just interested. :) x
from oxfordavid :
Hi howya doin'? Don't know why, but whenever I visit other people's diaries, you're nearly always there! I'm on OS9.1 and have no problem with Avalonte, except the scroll box is a teensy bit narrow. Better write to Avalonte 'bout that. Half the macs around here are on OSX now which I can't wait to get, it's so clean. I manage to get by with the Windows XP on the other machines. Anyways, well done with the shaving experience. It's a bit nerve-wracking when someone's prepared to put their life (well, legs) in your hands. To be shaved by someone skilled with a cut-throat razor is a pleasure and the skin never felt smoother. Love the sound of the beautiful sea coral crystals even though they were unwanted. Congratulations on the drawings too!
from avalonte :
No-one else is having problems with my layout, so I think as you said you've got a "funky browser"! ;) I have changed a couple of things to try to make it friendlier for you. Let me know if there's any change?
from tacie77 :
No problem :) I did have to think awhile to answer that one!
from imaglassfull :
Wow, thanx for leaving me a note--I never get notes! And all I did was fill out your little survey thingie! But no sweat--I love filling out surveys! And thanx for the compliment about my seeming like a lot of fun--'cuz I am!! Ha ha Nah, I'm just joshin' ya...
from avalonte :
Ok, now I'm REALLY confused! (lol! nothing new there!) Where on the layout does my entry box appear for you? Did you look at the screen shot I took?
from avalonte :
Oh, btw, I changed the font size! Does that look better?
from avalonte :
I know I didn't need to justify it, but I realised it did look hypocritical. And the other big difference is that Dave is in love with me too! And there's a good chance we'll get back together! But, like I said, I'm not passing up other chances if they happen to come my way! ;) So, I'm only half hanging! ;) I've still got one foot on the floor! LOL!;) Your description of my diary's appearance on your screen is intriguing me!! No words should be cut in half, you shouldn't have any trouble reading it. Please could you take a screen cap so I can see it? Did you see what it's supposed to look like from the screen cap I took?
from starzero :
as for the gayness of zero: back in college when i was wearing skirts (shaved legs and pantyhose, too) a friend of mine said i was very secure in my sexuality, probably the most secure person she knew. i think i am. i wore those skirts as a cross-dresser, but it wasn't until later (and only in two isolated events) that i wore women's clothes for sexual excitement (transvesticism). i've had my fantasies about being with men, either one-on-one or in group situations, but never have i had even the remotest beginnings (except once in college when this guy had me over for tea, and i was at the time completely oblivious to his intentions). i think were i to find a man i found attractive and we were in a situation where i felt safe and things could move slowly, i think definitely i'd explore that avenue. i'm sure this could also happen in heated moments as well, and i'm not sure which i'd prefer.
from poolagirl :
Chilling entry today, Wenchie. You hit the nail on the head. Our systems are fucked up!
from qira :
{{{{{shudder}}}}} very distressing entry today, Miz Wench, very distressing indeed. stuff like this truly makes me want to curl up and think of nothing but the flowers in my garden. not the most functional approach, i'll grant you, but the one i'd like right now.
from sasori-gal :
Thanks for your comments! I thought I'd invade your notes for a change! I am extremely attracted to Mr. Yak, but I don't know if you would categorize him in the good-looking/handsome category. He's got style and attitude, gorgeous full-body tattoos and he's very clean-cut. I don't think he fits the stereotypical image of how they portray the Japanese mafia in movies. But I also think nobody would want to mess with him either! ;)
from avalonte :
Haha! No, the irony didn't escape me either! But it is a little different. Dave and I have something special, and have a lot in common, and although I'm waiting for him I'm not in his face every 2 minutes telling him! But you're right, at least James and I have "desire for someone we're not with", in common! Hehe! x
from evil-wang :
mwahahaha, thankz for teh n0te, it was amusing ;o ^_^
from black-girl :
Glad I could find your survey and enjoyed taking it. Openess is definitely NOT a prob for me. Finding sex with someone who will cherish me even if for one night is! =) I'm drunk right now, so that makes no sense...but, such is life. =)

Well thankyou honey! You seem a hella lotta fun too! great survey! Loadsa love, *Rianna* ♥ x

Just in case you're interested, I took a screen cap to show you what it should look like. http://avalonte.diaryland.com/images/diary.jpg
from avalonte :
Thanks for your lovely comments!!! You sweetie! By the way, what screen resolution are you using? Because the links should be in a little line directly above the entry box. It's interesting to know it doesn't look right on a different res. x
from steverocks21 :
wow you have so many notes, haha its amazing, i can't even fathom that many. Anyway, i look forward to taking your survey's you always have something witty and clever to say. Actually, i just like to think someone out there cares about the human race. Leave me a note any time i really enjoy them and maybe i'll keep taking your survey's. :)
from avalonte :
I just realised I forgot to answer you about my photos page. The link is with all the other links at the top of my page. Hope you're having a good weekend!

Thanks for telling me about the broken link! I've fixed it now. It was all down to a comma instead of a full-stop! Bloody over-sensitive, inflexible, uncompromising html!! Grrr!! LOL!
from hissandtell :
Hi - found you through some mutual buddies and am enjoying your diary enormously. Love, R xxx
from dangerspouse :
You know, I had no idea you could delete notes! Thanks for letting me know. I just spent the last two hours wiping a bunch out, but I'm only about a third of the way through. I'll resume later. Hey - how the hell did poolagirl know how many entries I have, and how many people list me as a fave??! I've gotta get more savvy about all this computer shit...Anyway, thanks for the note :)
from onewetleg :
oh, yeah, i recieved the pictures, thank you very much. love,
from sugaslice :
Hey, thanks for the note! :) It's encouraging to know that there are successful writers/artists out there who have gone through the same thing only to come out on top and that I'm not the only one frantically ripping out my hair trying to come up with a story for all these characters and places and happenings in my head. :) Thanks again. - la Slice
from avalonte :
The "low" feature refers to the low point of the day! LOL! I didn't mean the bill was low! But it did include their jabs and their worming and flea treatments. Can't wait to see your pics!! x

YAY! You have a book too! YAY! Thanks for stopping by and visiting. I started the nice journey into your diary, and yes, I am making you a FAVE! Sorry about that grilled cheese sandwich :-(
from moodymelinda :
thanks wench.......i will do that
from moodymelinda :
yes i guess it could be something like that.........tell him hi from me will you??
from moodymelinda :
listen wench.......i know you have perceptionss as one of your favourite diaries....i had him too but i dont anymore because most of the times i go in there the screen freezes up and i get kicked out.......does that happen to you?? or is it just me?? i hate that.......its so annoying......maybe he put in some spell on me that kicks me out!!! nah....he hasnt.....its just weird.....same thing with grimms.....another of my favs..:-(.......anyway......i want to know if just me or...?
from chaosdaily :
you can try rebuilding your desktop too.... start up or restart holding down the apple and option keys. it will only chime once, but keep holding those down until it loads all the extensions on the bottom. you get to a message asking if you really want to rebuild the desktop, then you can let the keys go, and click yes. or try zapping the prams again and let it chime 3 times, since you arent on system 9 yet. i used to let it chime 3 times with my old puter. good luck....
from retailharlot :
Nice warning message. How did people that you know IRL find out about your diary, anyway? That would creep me out.

re: the your last note about quiz results. i'd say the answer is yes. on to other things. i've got your backpatch. and your forepatch. now i'm just having trouble finding the perfect hoody. i'm thinking something in a medium but the sizes vary from brand to brand. mission thrift had some sweet ones. however,if i had a nutsack it would have crawled up in my body upon seeing their prices. don't worry, it will come. love,

i took the book quiz, and apparantly, I'm "Ulysses" by Joyce. How strange, my boyfriend bought that for my dad for christmas. The picture was the abridged version, though I strongly believe I'm UNabridged. I leave nothing out. Cool book quiz link. I LIKE! Oh yeah, i never told you the comics I read. I really like Tony Millionaire, Neil Gaiman, R. Crumb, Strangers in Paradise, Mouse, Dork, El Borbah, Black Hole, and on and on. I haven't heard of some that you mentioned, I should check them out, by gum!

Thank you so much, hon!

Driving a steamroller over helpless puppies? That's sick! You should be more classy and sensitive, like me. (But I may try it anyway....) :)
from dangerspouse :
Y'know, I shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a keyboard on Saturday mornings. I completely missed all the nuances of your first note to me. D'OH! So I'll shut up now after making just one more observation: it's not just 4 year old boys who diddle their dicks....
from dangerspouse :
Hey Wenchie, I understand completely the note you left over at my place. But here's the thing: that gentleman had previously been convicted of child molestation charges, so the rules enforced on him are/were different than for others. Unless I'm greatly mistaked, he was not supposed to have been anwhere near a day-care center anyway, regardless of any clothing choices he made otherwise. A person NOT convicted of previous sex crimes against children might be labled "odd" by some if they showed up at a school dressed that way, but they wouldn't have been arrested.
from avalonte :
Thanks for your lovely messages! You're an angel! By the way, the template you praised (thank you so much by the way!!) is my new template! I changed it yesterday! I spent ages on it, so it should be around for a while! hugs.

Hello, first out, you can see in the status bar in your internet browser what kind of file you are being linked to. Just takes 1/10th of a second to look down quickly and then up again. Second out, yes it is a prejudice of me saying like I did. I can inform you that I have no problem with immigrants at all, I think it's great to see so many mixed cultures here. I am myself half Swede half Italian. The thing is, in the city I live in, we do have gangs with new-Swedes. And every day when you read in the local papers, a crime, like muggery or something similar has happend. I live in a rather small city, about 60 000 citizens. The truth is, it's the very kind of people I blamed, that are the statistic of the crime I was upset about here. Everyone knows it. And I blame only youngsters. The adults, I have never reacted of. They are fine. I know I may seem racistic to you, but I can guarantee you that I am not. I put my votes on the left politic side, not the right at all. Hej dŚ. Hšlsningar frŚn Sverige.

yes, yes! and tommy says yes, too. i just asked him and he said, 'i'm not naked, i'm tied up, what the hell.' post away, woman we are not afraid. and i did get your voice message. all is good in the land of odds. love,
from onewetleg :
yeah, im just going to go ahead and do it. 3562 20th st #3 94110. bring it on stalkers. i haven't had anyone yelling out my window in alongtime. love,

Hi. I'm glad I wasn't the only one to wince when I saw that term in Sleepyzoe's diary. Naturally, I am hyper-sensitive because it effected me personally, but it was nice to see I had some support. Not that I needed it as far as she was concerned, as she completely agreed about the term. But it looks like I upset an awful lot of people, doesn't ot!! Oops! I just want to say thank you. Have a great weekend.
from blackpanty :
Ok, maybe most activists. I know I'm a cloudy person. I'll work on that. :) Some activists do have very valid points, many just get ridiculous with what they say.
from oxfordavid :
Hiya, wonderful wench. Stuck an entry in today about what you mentioned in the note, thanks. Don't consider reading the Hawking book. It's unmitigated tripe and a waste of time because it's so badly (ghost) written. The only thing I like about that guy is his atheism. Go read a good biography on Einstein, you'll get a lot more out of it if you're interested in relativity or black holes. Otherwise, my very very favorite Physicist is the dear and sadly missed, bongo-playing Richard Feynman. But, of course, you know him already!
from sugaslice :
THANX for the hugz. I needed them. :) HUGZ- la Slice
from starzero :
why yes, actually. as an avowed atheist i have no truck with god. furthermore, my country was founded to enable its citizens to be free to choose their own religion, and to follow their own religion without government intervention. mr. bush's attempts at curtailing reproductive freedom are an expression of his religious views, with which some of us may not agree. on that basis alone, such things should not be regulated by the government. just as federal money should not go to religiously-affiliated schools or faith-based charity projects. just as the army general (a representative of the united states government) who preached in uniform to a church congregation that this war on terror was about good vs. evil, and that we (meaning christians) are good and they (meaning muslims) are bad, this man should have been severely reprimanded, if not relieved of duty. what happened? well, mr. bush apolgised without disagreeing with that view and quietly pushed him aside without any punishment. america is being taken over by religious fanatics. just in case you missed it, the same god who tells mr. bush that abortion should be illegal also tells mr. bush that homosexuality is an abomination. if i had a god, it would not be one so filled with hate.
from n-o-v-a :
^_^ heh thanks. Are you on BME-IAM at all?
from onewetleg :
once again, letting me know when i am fucking up. try it now. thanks, amiga. love,
from sugaslice :
Honestly, I would demand to be moved into another room, on another floor, maybe even into another dormitory, if I was the roommate. Being in that same room would freak the shit out of me. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. :( - la Slice
from windwillow :
thanks I enjoyed the survey a lot and thanks for the encouraging words....I can't really have any more kids so the doctors say so I can understand... ~WindWillow
from oxfordavid :
Hey, wenchie! Thanks for the note. At last, contact with someone familiar with Stevie and Danny (not Eddy?)! Love yer diary and especially your comments at other people's places.
from dangerspouse :
Sure, you come back from vacation and the first thing you do is give me a Math lesson. FINE! I should have said "32x32 inches"! See? It just goes to show what a bad job those fucking penguins did. Thanks for the swell notes :)
from purr67 :
Somehow I stumbled on your diary and got intrigued. Love the devil look!

Hey, chica - loved the Valentine's pics!!! FABULOUS costume. Sounds like someone had some fun this Valentine's Day...! - la Slice
from onewetleg :
hehe. you get to see my store. i hope i am not on the reg when you get there. no wait tomorrow you will be in sf. you have my number, call me!
from qira :
Hey lady...loving reading your diary. Thanks for the comix-related movie clues. We were just in the movie store last night, and I looked at American Splendo(u)r...now I'll definitely check it out!
from dabogrl :
ok, your brother sticks a logo up a dogs butt, you decide to pick it up, let alone smell it? i suspect you must have a very strange sense of curiosity. but ive thought about the whole lego smell thing. maybe they do have a smell. maybe all the other smells around it, like dog crap, are over-powering the weaker lego smell. i wonder if plain melted plastic has a smell. it seems to me it would...
from dabogrl :
yeah, the newsboys are great. that particular song is breakfast. hilarious. and legos dont really seem to have a smell. have you ever smelled a lego?
from loopyboi :
Awwww. Love what you said about me in your profile: "comments: sweet little fag boy. Heartwarming i tell ya."..... She called me "little". ;) xoxoxoxox Thanks for the comment, even if you think KB is ok looking. I am sometimes an immature "little" fag boy! ;) ~ Jamie Loves YOU!!!
from chaosdaily :
yup, i love liver!!! i have 3 sisters and a brother, and we used to fight over the last piece when we were young. we all like it..... mmm smothered in onions and bacon.. we used to sop up the pan drippings with our slices of homemade bread..... yummy!
from starzero :
then i suggest getting 'the singles', since it has everything you need from changesonebowie and more. basically, it's a great overview to bowie thru 1993.
from panicbird :
Hi Wench, Thanks for signing my guestbook! I've now tried in vain about 6 times to sign your guestmap...It's just not meant to be! This guestbook failure thing is really getting me down! So glad I'm not alone...!
from dangerspouse :
WENCHY!! You ROCK baby! Thanks for the note(s) of support over at my Haven of High Culture :) And btw, I can't believe all the shit you detailed in those notes about people you've dealt with! Woof, what a world, huh? Anyway, forgive the brevity, but I wanna scoot and read your latest entries. Thanks again!
from throwingjuly :
an american woman goes to fertility treatment and after a while is able to get pregnant and ends up having five kids. all over the world we have starvation and disease. there are six billion people and counting on this planet and not enough resources to sustain them. in some countries, people have babies that they don't know what to do with and end up dying because there are simply not enough resources to sustain them in their native land. why can't you love and want a child that would otherwise be condemned to death just because they are not born of you?

from tosborne :
I am definitely intrigued by your diary and am looking forward to enjoying the illustrations. I'll write back when I can give more intelligent comments (right now I'm at work). Thank you for adding me as a favorite! The 28 days with water was meant to be the "ultimate diet". It probably wasn't a good idea, but I really wanted to see if I could do it and believed in it at the time. It ended up being an amazing experience spiritually, but not all that great diet-wise (burned up a lot of lean body mass along with the fat--I know know that the body needs a minimum of .8 grams of 100% protein for every 2.2 pounds of ideal body weight per day in order to replace and rebuild good tissue). What's wrong with MY body is my fault (i.e., eating too much of the wrong things, not being active enough, not getting enough sleep, etc.), but definitely other people may have other things that are NOT their fault. I certainly wouldn't blame your infertility on you (and I think dairy products are healthy, but only natural, raw, unpasteurized, unhomogenized dairy products, preferably coming from unadulterated cows, such as Jersey cows, living on small family farms). People do suffer from quite a lot of degenereative diseases that may be their fault if only they actually KNEW what to do or not to do, but the truth is we know very little about negative environmental conditions, toxic substances ingested, and the like (I have read some convincing material that even children's breakfast cereals are actually toxic and worse than eating nothing at all), and so people can't be blamed for doing things that hurt them when they had no clue. Cigarette smoking is probably bad (I don't smoke), but even with that I wouldn't be 100% sure, as some people have lived to be 100 years old and smoked like chimneys. Paramahansa Yogananda even prescribed tobacco to one of his devotees as an herbal medicine. Anyway, I guess we all do the best we can within our own particular circumstances!
from tosborne :
A child's illustrator--that's extremely cool (I wish I knew which books, but then that would wreck your anonymity). Relatively recenty I bought a children's book just because the illustrations were so precious, it was "The Stray Dog," by Marc Simont--I'm going to be "reading" that one to a kindergarten class in a couple of weeks. (Reading it means mostly showing them the pictures and then discussing what's going on). I'm sure you'd love that book, yourself. After I posted my answers to your quiz, I realized that I had misread your question about the videogames. Well, the "child me" does not like them, I like using my own imagination more. But I have a friend, who is an adult, who is such a fanatic for video games that she is now becoming a game developer--so there must be something to them!
from cadwaladr :
That wasn't an original epitaph, that is, I didn't come up with it first. If you go to Stratford, you can find the original on Shakespeare's tomb. My all-time favourite epitaph, however, is in Wood Ditton, in Cambridgeshire, and it goes like this: Here lies the corpse who was the man / That lov'd a sop in dripping pan / But now believe me I am dead / Now here the pan stands at my head / still for sop to the last I cry'd / But could not eat and so I died / My neighbours they perhaps may laugh / Now they do read my epitaph.
from cadwaladr :
Thank you for your note. Just because you have no business writing surveys about weapons doesn't mean that you shouldn't. I have no business doing a lot of the things I do either. You may be right in your medieval music analogy, and it may be true that most people would think themselves perfectly competent to write about music if they know nothing of medieval music, and maybe they would be, but for myself, if there is a subject in which I am interested, I like to find out everything I can about it. I know that not everyone is like me--indeed, most people are not, I think--and you'd think that I would remember that and not assume that everyone is as big a geek as I, but I never do. Oh well. I see now that you have other surveys, so I will go take some now.
from dangerspouse :
Hey there Wenchy, thanks for the great note over at my place! I hope my computer stayes conscious long enough to catch up on some of your epics ;) In the meantime, the NEW computer will take about two weeks to ship once I order it, so I'm still handicapped until then. Ciao, get some sleep, and thanks again!!
from onewetleg :
hi. i love the cover. god's hand coming down with a plastic baggie! brilliant! hope doggies is feeling ok and you too. love,
from moodymelinda :
Yes i agree, if the ones who read it are too stupid to realize that this is a diary and not something you post in the local newspaper, then really that is their problem.

my favorite source for music information, the all music guide (www.allmusic.com), says the new sinead (she claims also the last) is her best. when i get to it, i'll let you know. probably tomorrow.

ack! you were one i forgot to mention in the entry. wait. i did email you this morning. did you get it? i'm so so. so... i feel like my head is split open and my braids are soaking up the brain juice. i know i have to get up but i can't sleep... aarrgghh!
from willowgrove :
man that's a bummer about whoever forwarded that stuff. i realize that these diaries are totally public, but i'll write everything. just leave out names and some specific details--i have this diary for venting all my problems and thoughts and anything i feel like saying, and another one where i use real names and stuff, but don't always post exactly what's going on. seems to work pretty well.

Man, regarding the anonymous asshole who forwarded one of your entries to an ex...how traitorous and nasty! Some people love to stir up shit. I can't believe that. Hope you find out who did it so you can verbally smack them down!! And if not...don't worry, because what goes around, eventually comes around. - Cheers, la Slice

At 8:30 am, I've already been up for two hours!! The first thing I do when I get to work is read my buddy list...it's a nice way to kill at least a half hour...I don't feel quite right unless I've had my daily dose of d-land! I'm excited for you...I love it when creative people get to be super productive. It's my mission to do so this weekend...I HAVE to!! :) xoxo
from dreamsongs :
thanks for the bondage suggestions, i really have to get my husband to try some of these things. . .he he. glad the carrots were interesting. i've just posted some of my freakier dreams, they're a few months old actually but they definitely have staying power (at least for me, anyhow). cheers!
from oldhippie :
i'll try to locate the webpage i found the story on, and send you the link. i don't think the page is from the original author, but at least it's where i borrowed it from.
from dreamsongs :
is there some way i can look at the notes you left while i write this note? i should've taken notes. . .he he. . .that's great that you give so much feedback to everyone who fills out your surveys! or maybe i'm special? a super-large squash might work if you have it aloft on a collapsible platform and drop it on your enemy as they approach, but that involves expecting the attack. i like the word "collapsible," people should use it more often. not sure if i'm spelling it right, though. actually, before i even think of acquiring ropes, or books about ropes, i need to get a headboard, because currently there is nothing to tie the ropes to! oh well. i guess the lego justification problem has more to do with "how much time would i actually spend playing with them anyway?" more than with money. it's one of those things, like art supplies, that i think, "gee wouldn't it be fun to have around?" but don't know if i'd actually do much with if i actually had. who knows? my current "job" (non-paid) is psychology extern, at a residential treatment center for kids 6-14. tough work, the kids are great but i hate the bureaucratic aspects of the job, so i'm probably going to go with outpatient once i finish my degree. before this "note" gets ridiculously long, i should actually read some of your diary entries, and maybe get some lunch. lunch is good. cheers!
from hogwild666 :
well, since i don't believe into the System, i will have no reason for death certificate. as for other costs, i'm sure about seven fat harley riders can dig a pretty good hole and they'll bring the beer and flowers as their last respect to me.. no coffin. i don't have no property though so they'll have to dig that hole somewhere in the woods. but i think i will stick with blowing my ashes into the tailwind, it is more..hmm..romantical? hell, it probably won't differ much one way or another.

congrats on the quote! sounds like you are feeling better. love,
from lovely-freak :
thanks for your comment on my entry. most men don't get that issue. i certainly would have been fine with him being out. we have children tho' and there's no way for me to go out at that point. brian and i talked about it in more depth last night and worked through it. please don't think that it's always like that with us. it's not. he's a wonderful man and husband... he's human just like the rest of us. what pisses me off about people like the guy who commented before you is that they don't link themselves for a response. typical male behavior i believe. none the less... thanks for understanding. i appreciate it and it helps keep me sane knowing others don't think i'm a crazy fruit cake. ok... done with this babbling brain fart...
from sammy-spade :
Hey. Trying to respond to the note you sent me ^_^ Yeah, first of all, if it helps, now that I've read your diary, I would recommend you for adoption if I was an... agency person, or whatever you call them. I mean... you seem like someone who could take care of children. Anyway... I'm glad you think that my writing's interesting, and I'm also glad you're capable of putting up with my horrible insensitivity. And yeah, I know what you mean about being a bi-dyke, because I am one too. I usually tell people I'm a lesbian, though, because that seems easier for their little brains to comphrehend... ^_~
from moodymelinda :
oh no....i was going to send you a message and i ended up sending it to myself( blush).....anyway.....it was trying to tell you that those boots only get on my feet when i hike in wintertime....and that doesnt happen too often....thanks for the notes...its fun to communicate this way:-)
from moodymelinda :
I guess it shows narcissm to put a big photo of myself at the front page, but oh well...it's my diary and my rambling and it's all about me.....hehehe..about the photoalbum I havent found a way to go from one photo to the next withtout going back to the index first, but then when it's for free I guess you cant ask for that much...I did finally figure out how to link to photos in my diary though, which is more fun. You asked about my husband, and he is a fisherman. Your drawings are so good, I doubt that they could be better if you had kids around. I noticed that you even got the way this little boy is holding his hands all right, its really just like seeing my son having a fit of rage( yes it does happen )
from loopyboi :
I'll only say good things about my co-workers. I promise. :) The 'bitching about them' part is for Nelson's ears. ;) hehe xxx Jamie p.s. I already learned my lesson... ahhh... it's a long story... but exactly what you described, happened to me as well.
from loopyboi :
re: My co-workers reading my diary and having their permission to post pics? Hmmm. I have their permission, yes, but believe it or not, they do not all even know HOW to use a computer, let alone *own* one. One co-worker has read my diary, and I trust her already. :) I'm a pretty good judge of character, and she hasn't squealed.... yet. ;) xoxox Jamie ... p.s. Chris and I are good pals. He knows I think he's a studmuffin, and accepts it. :) Yayyy for open-minded heteros!!! :)

Damn, what were you, reading over my shoulder as I typed? I hit "Enter" then immediately hit "Your Notes"...and there was a note from you! So...THANKS! :) And thanks for pointing out the missing "(tm)". God knows who would have stolen her if I'd neglected the trademark! I just read your latest entry. Now I have to hurry to see how many more of your archived ones I can get to before this thing gets sucked down a black hole. Sounds like you're having fun so far, though! Good for you!! Thanks again :)
from dreamsongs :
thanks muchly for the trivia on japanese bondage, it is nice to get some feedback on my dreams. i'll try to add some more this weekend, and will try the survey you recommended as well.
from hogwild666 :
i haven't thought of using burns as something to leave a mark. in fact my most of my tats were done some time back.. i guess i see them as part of my "1%" side (if you don't know what i mean by 1%, read the "Hells Angel"), which is actually about 99% of me as i am a part of society. i liked your "101 things about me" as well as your diary. it's well organized. i didn't answer on the last question in "threeof" because i really don't love anything about myself.
from hogwild666 :
what i basically meant was that if we all would have weapons, we wouldn't be as defenseless as we are now. where i live, about everybody has at least three guns in the household and our crime rates are almost zero. there hasn't been any burglaries for years in this area because everybody knows that them hillbillies around here won't hesistate. just my ex-military logic though. anyway good point about the terrorists though, the suicide bombers really don't give, because they'll die anyway. nice survey, by the way.
from aussois :
huh. I fight all the time, just with pansies who can't back up their incessant trash talking. The zits are helping with the cute part, but I still look young. Too young to date a twenty-something for instance. BLAST IT ALL!
from dooki :
I really liked your 101 list about onewetleg. I should do that for my best friend. She'd chuckle, and then she'd cry. Not in a sentimental way, but in a "break through" kind of way. Or maybe because I'd be standing on her head the entire time she read it. Either way, tears would flow. TEARS!!!
from onewetleg :
yeah, when people disappear i automatically assume they are dead. it's one of my more endearing qualities. love,

my bad, my bad. i never check the notes thingie, and since it doesn't notify me when ppl leave a note like my guestbook does, i forget all about it. so clueless me had no idea you left me 2 notes. i so sorry! now i'm going to go and read all about you . . .
from zaziel :
I love the buttons you designed for the Fallen. I'm sorry I took so long to get back to you. I can imagine how disheartening it must be, making such a lovely gift and receiving not even a hint of thanks or feedback. I've presented your designs to my readers, at http://zaziel.diaryland.com/commission.html - Do you mind if I added color? If you don't like it, I'll restore them to black & white. And can you suggest a shorter copyright statement? The initials of your real name, perhaps? Or do you like it the way it is? Tell me what you want.
from ophelias-cpr :
Hi there. I took your survey (interesting one at that) and, as promised, looked at your diary and Sure- If I was an adoption agency I would have no problems giving you the thumbs up. You reaaly want kids so you would be a great mum. Cheers, Ophelia xxx
from moodymelinda :
that thing about your friend not wanting you to come because it brings her into difficult topics with the kids sounds a bit weird........kids ask difficult questions all the time.....that's what kids do......and they seem to like you lots.......so....that part i didn't get.......i am just up......so...have a nice day.
from neurotic-one :
Yikes, fantasies of being Amish? LOL, you obviously have never been up close to one...they have a very unique smell and must need an attitude adjustment when having to deal with us 'English' as we are referred to. Anyhow, a burning barrel is usually a large metal drum, like an oil drum, that they use to burn papers or other organic material.
