from nixtress :
Happy Fourth of July. Hope you're doing well :)
from erianne1 :
I'm sorry your Beltane weekend was ruined, but glad you're doing better now. Maybe Soltice next month will be twice as cool to make up for it.
from might-could :
re: "hot as snot" Yeah, it's like my Gram's "They think they're hot shit on a silver platter but really they're just a cold turd on a paper plate." So "hot as snot" is meant well! It just rhymes and stuff. ; p
from might-could :
GO, JESS GO! One add'l thing: you don't atually eat until you're FULL. Eat until you're "not hungry." You can eat more in a few minutes if you find "not hungry" meant well, maybe still hungry...So work on the first sign of not hungry rather than full. Here's an easy thing to do when I'm at work: I work while I eat anyway (unhealthy) but in doing so, I'm taking bites and chewing while working...at some point when I go to take another bite, I say, "Oh, maybe I'll let it sit for a minute or so." I almost always go back to eating it all BUT if I don't, YAY me!!! I think it's training me to be mindful. At night? Ooo, not-so-much easy. : ) That's *me* though, you'll be GREAT!
from erianne1 :
It shouldn't be a problem what to take for Beltane to eat. My friend is on that program and we do fest for 5 days in May. She brings a cooler full of precut bagged fresh fruits & veggies which seems to work well. Good luck to you girl! You'll make it!
from might-could :
Hey, thanks for the note! Recover, well sorta except this week has been the usual getting beat over the head plus some : )
from serenaville :
Glad to read something from you again!! I just got my computer back too, though it took much longer for me than it did for you. The format of your update was clever, I might have to copy you! Er, TRIBUTE you. I meant tribute. Yeah. Welcome back!! ;)
from erianne1 :
*happy dance* She's back!!!!!
from ilmomof3 :
Wow!!! You've been busy! And when are you comin' down again? I swear, if people can visit you from the Midwest, I really have NO excuse. Maybe a nice cool trip to Prescott is in order. Can I stay with you so I can avoid my sister-in-law? ;-P Kidding.
from nixtress :
I hope you're okay over there. It's been awhile since you updated. Just getting worried and wanted you to know I've been thinking of you.
from erianne1 :
Hey chiquita...where are you? You haven't updated in forever. Everything ok? People miss you, ya know. I hope all is well and you're just busy with work. I'll keep a good thought for you.
from jorod74 :
you are a doll. god, when i least expect it, you surprise me. now tell those bad people to behave and you take care a you, okay? be sweet, be well and i send all my best.
from nixtress :
Thank you. Hope you're feeling better soon, too.
from hissandtell :
Sorry to hear you're feeling down, but I'm awfully glad you're back. You know, I'd actually given up on you! Yes, I should have known better with a girl like you... Hope things level out for you very soon. Love, R xxx
from erianne1 :
I'm sorry you're ill and hope that you get better soon. I hope it "all" gets better soon. Sometimes things have to be slogged through in order to achieve total catharsis. I'll keep a positive thought for you.
from ilmomof3 :
::hugs:: That's all. And a waiting cup of java.
from nixtress :
Happy Monday/Valentine's Day.
from might-could :
Hork my hecticity as you please. I have actually invented words that like, 20 years ago I heard people saying in other cities...it makes one wonder if it was a synchronicity where I came up with it at the same time as someone else or if it travelled?! Hope you're well!
from ilmomof3 :
Hey, I've read that book... actually even met River at the Grove once. He invited us to some events while we were in St. Louis, but I was never able to go. Let me know what you think -- I've heard good things about it.
from ozarklily :
I so admire you writing this stuff out. It’s not in a journal or a workbook where prying eyes cannot see. It’s hard work. His “Self Matters” was terribly painful but it helped me “see” things I said to myself too. As you mentioned, a lot of the things were not originally placed by me but “given” to me by others and perhaps it’s easiest to rid ourselves of those things first? You deserve to rid yourself of those mean thoughts and embrace positive, life-affirming ones in their place. You’re not alone, I can say that much! Hugs
from jorod74 :
fear of the future, fear of what you will find at the end of a journey terrifies me, too. we know ourselves well enough that we aren't sure how we will handle that moment of discovery. but with your friends, with the faith you have, you can't do any worse than not getting there. be strong, love and we will be there for you. keep writing and keep your chin up.
from ilmomof3 :
Wow, I could have written a lot of that myself, especially the pieces about self control and exercise. Do you have any friends you could buddy with at the gym? That has been a major factor in getting me there lately...
from might-could :
Well good luck! I bought and DID the work in the Self Matters book and it was really VERY painful. It took me some months and 2 journals of work (filling out responses to all his questions). That lead me to doing 13 months of Dark Moon workings (rituals) and then I started doing some Feri working and THEN I began my actual therapy sessions! : ) My point is, each one of those things built upon the next to help me face things that I had hidden from age 3. That's a lifetime of hiding and every bit of it's worth it. YOU are worth it. I know cuz I know you, not to mention you're worth it cuz you're J!
from ms-do :
You've made the first step...excellent....i'm right beside you.....good luck
from hissandtell :
Well, that was an inspiring entry. I wish you luck on your journey - it sounds certain to succeed if you begin it with the right motives. We all have those glossy veneers that both protect us and propel us forward in so many ways, yet shield us from change and growth at the same time. Good luck. Love, R xxx
from ilmomof3 :
I am not only with you on the journey, but recently came to the same book with the same concerns. It's sitting accusingly at my bedside right now wondering why I'm not reading it. Let me know the next time you're in town and we can commiserate over a cup of something low-calorie. :-)
from might-could :
'sank oo s'much! I figured whatever it was got fixed via Andrew and he's just too damned busy to go emailing people letting them know "I fixed it." : ) We have snow today. I ran out and checked that my door still opened and it did : ) It has been rainy and it switched over this morning.
from might-could :
Hey toots, do me a favor and through my diary, click on the "signmyguestbook" and try signing. I emailed Andrew twice about different problems with it and never heard from him (assuming he found no probs?). I know you're busy but if'n you get a chance...thx!
from pandionna :
Oh honey, I laid claim to Viggo a long time ago. The moment I found out he has a publishing company, he was mine. So sorry. So very sorry. But the boy is mine.
from citlalli31 :
wow, that was such a teenybopper-esque entry, but i liked it. you have good taste, mujer.
from might-could :
running the risk of offering "duh, I already know that" advice: things that melt snow and ice: straight salt from the kitchen (in a pinch), actual "ice-melt" crap you buy at a feed store or home depot-y place, kitty litter (offers meltability *and* traction), water softener "pellets". In my area, stores run out of "official" melty stuff so we have learned to use whatever is on hand. Another big hint: that 50 lb bag of sand for gardening (at home depot in summer) can be used to sprinkle some on top of snow/ice for traction. If you burn wood, "cinders" or ashes are excellent at melting and their darkness attracts sun's rays which further melt in the sun *and* it gives traction. We use our own cinders on our hill mostly and sprinkle the "ice-melt" frugally. LOVE and soft-fallin' to ya!
from serenaville :
Yikes! Sorry to hear about your nasty fall. I empathize. Well, my tailbone does. Footwear with spikes might work well for both of us... who knows, might even spark a trend! *HUGS*
from might-could :
My sugar! “barging” in on your introspection..What you wrote so succinctly about “putting yourself out there” v. what you know is true about how much you really share or keep to yourself...That’s how I feel. I wonder how true that is for everyone? Or is it “just us?” : ) xoxo
from ilmomof3 :
Awww... I'm so missing the snow. It's a good thing it's so rainy. Almost as good.
from pandionna :
Awwww, just lovely!
from mom-on-roof :
So pretty, both of you. She looks like a little cherub, you should dress her only in swaddling cloth and perch her on puffy white clouds!
from might-could :
Hey baby! You and herself are darling, indeed! Also, methinks you’ve gone and made more of your hair light. You look like a “Charlie’s Angel” from my childhood!
from nixtress :
Happy New Year.
from might-could :
"Fake it till you make it" or "If you can't dazzle them with brillance, baffle them with bullshit." The 2nd one was from the cutest guy (Ken doll) you've ever seen. I miss him. Such good advice! : )
from erianne1 :
This entry contains fudge info just for you. *grin* http://erianne1.diaryland.com/041225_24.html
from cinamonjaide :
Hi Since you are on my buddy list, I figured I would give you the link to my message board community. It's a laid back place with a few online friends. You are welcomed to join if you want. If not, that's fine, but I wanted to extend the invitation and let you know you would be welcomed. Here is the addy: http://groups.msn.com/ShovemeintheshallowwaterbeforeIgettoodeep
from might-could :
You know, I'm so glad you understand! And actually, I went over to wenchie's and found that link to the "disclaimer" site for bloggers. I added it (however I somehow deleted the link to my guestbook, hmmm). And yes, please, thank you, I'd rather to not be as a favorite to keep "down" my circulation : ) xoxo
from might-could :
Hey there! While I don't feel the need to "hide" from *you,* I must warn that my diary is a shit-dumping-depot. It's all about bitching/ being crazy/ paranoid/ etc. I don't mind if you peruse but remember this is the Evil LR Zone. Consider the "caveat" on Wench77's diary the same for mine ; p
from erianne1 :
I hate to say it, but first impressions are usually the most accurate in these situations. And sometimes it takes a while to find a group that's right for you. It's sort of like searching for a crystal to buy...wait for the one that vibrates and welcomes you. It's out there waiting, so don't settle for "eh" when you could be finding "oh!" with a little more effort. :)
from greenwitch :
EXCELLENT legal advice. Oh, and your choice of reading material is very EXCELLENT too. Glad you found time to update in all the busy-ness.
from rs536-2000 :
I loved your legal advice--your job sounds fantastic, albeit exhausting. I'm glad that you're updating more often.
from pandionna :
I hear ya on men who can cry. I've seen some pretty big, manly-men types lose it. I think they're bigger men for it.
from cinamonjaide :
I dont like it when men cry. I guess I am a bit sexist. It has to be a really good reason. My husband was crying alot when we first got married, and I hated it
from cinamonjaide :
Hi my name is Jaide, and I am just letting you know that I added you. Take a look at my journal, and hopefully you will add me too. If we are already friends, GREAT! I am sending a note to everyone on my buddy list, so just overlook this, if we have already exchanged journals. Jaide
from pandionna :
Glad to see you writing again. I missed you! Hope you like the snow. Why not see about learning to ski? Heh.
from might-could :
Hi! Big hugs to you and keep warm!
from hissandtell :
So glad you're back. You know, shopping for boots is one of the things I do best. (Falling on my arse is another.) Good luck with your group - hope it gives you what you're looking for. Love, R xxx
from nixtress :
I hope you're doing well, hope that you have a great holiday. Thinking of you.
from erianne1 :
I need the keys to get into your diary dear. Seems I've lost them. Thanks :)
from discodave :
I think I'm going to declare my flat a sanctuary for any and all disillusioned Americans. It may not be large enough however, so get in quick. Dxx
from might-could :
DAMN! I was just reading *my* DUI handbook! What a coincidence. Oh, we were probably reading for different reasons... No of course I don't really have one but sadly I have driven under the influence. I was a vewwy baaad giwel. No I'm only slightly mischievous. ; ) GOOD LUCK!
from whystinger :
could I sneak a peak? If so email me the password. Whystinger"at"yahoo.com
from ilmomof3 :
How did your move go? I know the new job/new home thing can be crazy -- I'm thinking of you!
from nixtress :
Still trundling along at an optimistic pace? Hope things are going smoothly. :)
from jerryjayray :
Many congratulations on your new job and place! Good luck settling into your new apartment, enjoy the solitude, and make the most of your last week of no work.
from serenaville :
Many congratulations on your new job!! The place you are moving to sounds spot on. Just from the way you describe both, it's clear you're making the very right choices. So great to know you're doing well. New job, new scenery...exciting times! Best luck! *HUGS*
from pandionna :
Congrats! Sounds like you'll enjoy it!
from might-could :
You know I loves ya! : ) I'm still having the "loose plans" on my AZ trip so you let me know (once you get settled in the new job) if you'll have a time that's better than others. I'm still figuring March or April. I'm so proud of you!! Like a true stalker, I looked up Prescott on the AZ website and there's a section "courts." I pointed it out to Julie and said, "That's where she'll be!!" : D Congratulations, my little marmot! LR
from nixtress :
Yay for a job you're looking forward to! And yay for personal space again! And yay for the update! I'm the perkiest fool this morning, sheesh! Seriously, congratulations. I'm happy that you're happy.
from ilmomof3 :
Oh gods, I'm so excited and so bummed all at the same time. I'll miss you this weekend! On the other hand, we have family in Prescott, so the possibility of getting together still looms...
from citlalli31 :
i want the password. my email is citlalli31 at diaryland.com.
from ilmomof3 :
Happy to oblige... go here: http://www.tawn.org/EVENTSCAL/FallFest/fallfest.htm Hope to see you there!
from ilmomof3 :
Hey, I'll be at Pagan Pride and also at TAWN, both times at the Wild Women Soaps booth. If you're there, stop in and say hello! I'll be the tall one with short hair. :-)
from marsist :
thanks. I know you know... I've been following your "adventures" too. strength to both of us.
from ozarklily :
Lovin' the weekend story. It feels like you were there a lot longer so I guess that implies how very deep and meaningful your time was! xoxo
from serenaville :
The entry about your weekend visit with your friends was wonderful. Your account of the trees was described so palpably, it felt like being there. Thank you for sharing the people so obviously precious to you, with us! *HUGS!!*
from ms-do :
you think i could have the password anonodada72? Please!
from serenaville :
Happiest of birthdays! What you wrote about giving your mother mother a gift since she did all the work, and that you only showed up, was sweetly humble and quite touching. It would take a number higher than 32, to count all the ways you and the diary you write are simply amazing. *HUGS!!!*
from pandionna :
Happy Birthday!
from r-y-r :
I hope and wish this upcoming year brings you many joys. Happy belated birthday!!!!
from might-could :
Now that *did* sound fabuloussssses! Much love to you now you're 32 plus a day! : )
from might-could :
It WILL work out! Be sure to remember to hug Sheila really hard and give Erin a little squeeze too! I think I was a little too "touchy-feely" for Erin. C'ain't hep-mesef! Big squishin' hugs to you too!!
from discodave :
That did it. Cheers, m'dear. Dxx
from discodave :
Hotmail's being a pain and blocked your email, apparently - my email addy is davefraser(REMOVETHIS)40@hotmail.com - that should get through fine. Dxx
from fluidlife :
I'd like the password please. Perhaps my email didn't reach you?
from discodave :
Damn - didn't ask for a password early enough. Um, please? Dxx
from ilmomof3 :
So good to hear from you... will be contacting you re: (frozen) coffee in Hellizona as soon as I'm unpacked. :-)
from serenaville :
Thank you so much for the password! I'm sorry to hear of your job situation, and wish you every luck on the 'Get A Damn Job' project. Something is bound to come your way, and when least expected, doubtless. Chin check! Thank you for your well-wishes in my comments, to hear from you again is a day brightener! *HUGS!!!*
from rs536-2000 :
i didn't get the email you sent me--could you resend to rs536_2000@yahoo.com? And thanks for adding me to the faves.
from might-could :
Missed you, baby! Glad you've found YOUR space again : )
from greenwitch :
I am wondering if you would like to share your password. Missed your email and don't see it on your profile. Thanks, hope everything is OK
from hissandtell :
Hi - I emailed you asking if you'd mind sharing your password, but I haven't heard back from you. If you'd care to let me know the secret handshake, please drop me a line at spinifexsister@yahoo.com.au. Love, R xxx
from r-y-r :
You were greatly missed. I hope you share your password with me so I can continue reading all of your interesting postings. If you are not comfortable leaving the password on notes, you can email me at prittyber@yahoo.com Thank you much!!! Becky
from might-could :
I'm with ya sister! I've got the old lock-a-rooney on mine. I just got weirded out a couple times too many. As I say, when people talking to me about my diary ends up taking up therapy-time? Yeah, it's time to lock. I loved reading your thoughts and it was like "being there" with you. Enjoy your new freedom!
from jerryjayray :
Jess, I'd love to keep reading your journal. I've been wondering where you've been - hope everything is okay. Hang in there and take care of yourself.
from serenaville :
Please send me the password as well? (serenaville@hotmail.com) You crossed my mind the other day, as I noted how long it had been since your last post, wondering if you were alright. Not that I have room to talk, since it had been thirty-six days since mine. Sorry to hear the circumstances, but so glad you're staying, locked or otherwise! *Hugs*
from la-the-sage :
Another Red Tent devotee! I have GOT to get a copy. Password too, please. ~LA
from pandionna :
DON'T LEAVE ME! Heh. Please, do send a password if you feel comfortable doing so. Pandionna2 AT aol DOT com. (Don't forget the "2.") You're brilliant, and I miss reading your writing.
from rs536-2000 :
I hope that you'll consider sending me a password.
from nixtress :
I would love a password. You can email me at nixtress at hotmail dot com (damn the spammers!)..glad to see that you're living but sorry to hear the ick.
from nixtress :
Hope things are well over there. It's been a bit since you updated. Figured I'd pop in and say hi, let you know we're thinking about you.
from ilmomof3 :
Have you checked with Gilbert? I have a friend who is a prosecutor there and could check with him about hiring. Let me know. Three weeks and counting...
from ilmomof3 :
Jasmine had a pink stuffed dog named Rufus who went with her EVERYWHERE, so I think it's a fine name! :-) We'll be there on the 7th, so let me know what your schedule looks like -- mj_vansteenberg@yahoo.com
from might-could :
DUDE! I totally love your judge! Does he have a grandson/ son interested in a foul-mouthed, under-acheiving Pagan/ Wiccan chick from a farm in MO??? ; ) That was the bestest! I also love the winery story. Sorry 'bout the extra work-poopers!
from la-the-sage :
Wan, oh so wan with envy, but glad for you it was such a terrific trip. ~LA
from dangerspouse :
Your words were MORE than adequate (as usual) in describing your background in general, and weekend in specific. Bravo! It sounds like a terrific time was had by all, and I'm glad you are so fulfilled by it all. Great writing, really :)
from ozarklily :
I know you're leaving and won't see this until you get time: I love your description of the IS G-T! I find that you're such an open-eyed and hearted person and that you can immediately arrange things in a concise and intelligent way. I think I'll just copy/ paste your story into my blog! : ) You talked about the difference of meeting us face-to-face v. what you already knew. For you, I immediately loved you in the internet world. I think you're hilarious and smart. I found that your a real looker and I was amazed at how much genuine interest and caring you have in others. I think it's amazing that a young, lovely, and smart person well, isn't an ass. It just seems like you've got so many things going on and you're *still* a great girl! You could get away with anything...Have you? ; )
from greenwitch :
It took me a bit to get you on the buddy list but I have been reading you for a while. I hope you get past the difficulties of this week and have a blast with your friends :-D
from greenwitch :
It took me a bit to get you on the buddy list but I have been reading you for a while. I hope you get past the difficulties of this week and have a blast with your friends :-D
from ozarklily :
Whheeeeee! I’m so excited too! I’m am *so* sorry that your week has been just heinous. As you said, too, how much worse it is that you didn’t get the “cha ching” of tying up the loose ends? Ugh! I offer any help I can give if you’ll be working in Louisville. I can bring drinks and yell at people who bother you. That’s one thing I do exceptionally well...take the fall, be the bad guy, etc. It’s easy if it’s for someone else! I think you and Sheila are arriving very close to one another. Oh, I’m so psyched! I’m popping a Xanax tonight. It’s not a “sleeping pill” but I’m such a nervous wreck (but in a good way!). Love to you nad I’ll be seeing *you* in less than 24 hours! : D
from livingwreck :
A book on life in the year 1000. Exciting stuff I know. (Actually it was pretty interesting, if you're into that sort of thing.)...And I hate it when people don't wash their hands. It's digusting. (And I thought it was more a guy thing but I've been told by women that they see quite a lot of poor hygeine when it comes to people of the fairer sex.)
from bingoguy :
Although, I myself would find it gross to eat carrots out of my nose. Who's to say it is for someone else? It certainly wouldn't kill them. I thought the Sex example was a great counter because people do some pretty strange stuff in the act of sexual arousal.
from dangerspouse :
EEEWWW!! Someone ate a carrot? Blech!! Hmmm, but about the nose thing, I don't know if I'd pick it. (Oh, and tell your co-worker that it is NOT the same mucous as in your throat. Although it may have formed the same, after several seconds it is a much changed beast. As the first filter layer in that orifice, snot has a much higher bacteria and particulate count than other mucosa. So although the portion your body produced is similar, later additions make the package 'en toto' entirely different.) Funny entry, btw! I love the artistic use of "twat"!
from leftunspoken :
Dearheart: I've been delayed in responding due to the overwhelming gag reflex that has been triggered by what I read. I think I may now be able to... *shudder* *gag* Sorry. ...respond: A. A. Fucking A. Objectively, absolutely, unquestionably gross. AND unsanitary. While the mucus in both locations may be of the same composition, it serves different functions. The mucus in one's nose (along with the little hairs) serves the purpose of catching and collecting all the nastly little bacteria, pollution, etc. one doesn't want to travel to their lungs and/or stomach. When you blow your nose you are effectively expelling all the little nasties your brave mucus (muci?) have sacrificed their lives to save you from. So aside from the utter grade-school, gross-out, sliminess of it... *shudder* *gag* your demented, misguided office mate has now swallowed all the things her body spent the morning trying to keep her from inhaling. Furthermore, the sex comparison is ridiculous and apples and oranges entirely. Bottom line: You work with all the freaks and morons and rejects who spent grade school flipping their eyelids inside out and licking lead paint. Sorry, Charlie! Come by my office. We're mostly lovely and I'll make you tea. And I promise to wash my hands first. (As if there is EVER a time NOT to.) Love, M
from jerryjayray :
Objectively gross, and before I even got to that part in your entry, I was saying, "Well, would she PICK HER NOSE AND EAT IT?" And whether every single person washes their hands every single time they pee in their own home is irrelevant - it is still gross not to. We all do gross things. Sometimes I eat off the floor. Sometimes I borrow my roommate's toothbrush without telling him. It's all gross. Like sticking carrots up one's nose. I understand that some people may do it. It's still gross.
from ozarklily :
Bad Boy Jim at work says it's okay and anything involving the nose is getting more alright as he ages. I say anthing dealing w/eating snot or boogers is completely disgusting. Washing hands? I confess, at home, if nothing "gets on anything" I wash with water only. Out, I don't trust anything I may have touched and I want some soap too. I use soap at home too if I felt I touched anything. That said I'll eat things which fall on the floor. <shrugs>
from r-y-r :
Of course it is objectively gross, it doesnt surprise me, but it is still gross.
from ms-do :
Absolutely nothing phases me anymore. Each to their own. I however would never do it myself and i probably wouldn't like to see it either. I still find the act of my boys picking their nose and eating repulsive!
from quietflames :
I have to say that I find sticking a carrot up your nose and then eating it is objectively gross! And I wash my hands after urinating no matter where I am.
from hissandtell :
Well, I for one am horrified beyond belief to hear that anyone (well, specifically you) will suck a man's penis and even allow him to lick your twat, let alone kiss him afterwards! Kissing is just so dirty - all those boy germs (and girl germs). Yucky. And I shudder to think what you'd let a man like that get up to with some big non-baby-sized carrots. Or zucchinis. Or cucumbers. That is all.
from pandionna :
Guilty of grossness on both counts.
from ilmomof3 :
I think that my status as a mom probably disqualifies me from answering this question. My concept of gross and inappropriate has changed radically since children came into my life. Carrots in the nose, then the mouth? Naw, the first thing I thought was, "Hey, carrots -- that's healthy!" ;-)
from rs536-2000 :
Carrots in nose don't worry me at all, sorry about that. I suspect most people WILL find it objectively gross, though.
from ilmomof3 :
When I get to AZ, we have got to get together for coffee or something. :-)
from ilmomof3 :
Oooh, I LOVE Changing Hands! I had completely forgotten about it... another pro in the AZ column...
from ozarklily :
Hey, I know you're busy...what the hell do you make of this??? http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0420/perlstein.php Muck-raking? Truth stranger than fiction? Ech.
from serenaville :
Yes. I was equally appalled by that lawyer's "gallows humor" remark. I *know* what gallows humor is, I use it quite often. When I do, I am being *morose*. Funny, those soldiers couldn't have been smiling any more widely over that corpse, unless they had someone behind them helping to stretch their faces back. Uh huh... real 'gallows humor', there, buddy. If they'd been videotaped doing a victory dance by the body, would it have been characterized as 'ceremonial'? Absolutely ludicrous, and quite indefensible, in my personal opinion.
from dangerspouse :
Birds are funny that way. Jerry Seinfeld, back when he just did stand-up, used to tell the story of his pet parakeet who would get loose from his cage once in a while and fly straight into the dining room wall mirror. "I could understand that he thought there was a whole other room over there. But I never understood: why the hell didn't he ever try to swerve away from the parakeet that was flying straight at him??" Funny, funny entry, kiddo! (Sorry I been away - just finally catching up on your entries.)
from ozarklily :
You're so funny. I love that #100 of your list is that you love lists. ; )
from hissandtell :
I enjoyed reading your list so much that I read it twice! I felt I could relate to so many things, you see. Thank you for sharing them, you flaming-haired, brilliant, feisty, hot goddess! Love, R xxx
from ms-do :
i really enjoyed the 100 things about you. If you think 30 increases the libdo watch out for late 30's and early 40's, that's all i can vouch for now....smile
from ozarklily :
Okay, so if they interview well, I say Take the Damned Job already! ; ) Good luck!

Mother always warned me: NEVER trust a man who says, "just trust me." Awesome entry!

Oh, word. Thank you for expressing rational thoughts. I'm so appalled and disgusted (and not a lawyer) that I can't even form sentences. But if I could, I hope they'd sound like yours. And on the subject of that "outraged over the outrage" douchebag - I read an article on the BBC about a man who was imprisoned for not having his paperwork, then was molested and tortured. For not having his paperwork on him. It may not be a traffic violation, and I can foresee how certain crazy right-wing assholes could equate lacking documentation with being a terrorist (because that sort of deductive leap is so clearly justification for torture), but it seems fairly traffic-violation-esque to me. And it seems that there's a trend of note-hijacking today.
from ozarklily :
La, I've comandeered your comments/ notes SORRY! I think we were listening to the same NPR shows today. I almost fell off my chair at the outraged by the outrage comment. That SOB maybe needs a little some of that? A Super RightWinger at work was saying that Kerry said, "War's war" or something. I think they were trying to appeal to my pascifist sensibilities. They forget that unless given a crapload of serious negative information, it *was* war. It was also wrong to kill but I didn't get the Kerry quote and I really figure she was repeating that Hannidy (sp?) character (who makes me ill). I think I'm getting Bush-Tuerette's Syndrome. I hear something about this Adm. and I start spouting things that don't make sense. Hrrrmm. Somehow suitable considering the catalyst.
from ozarklily :
I love the gagging granddaughter! : ) Also, in STL (I don't know if every affiliate has its own button?) David Letterman can no longer say, "Jesus" as an expletive or exclamatory remark. The beeped it out on my telly. Potty mouths like me are in for the hose, I suppose : (
from ilmomof3 :
Congrats on the weight loss! I haven't made it to WW yet -- no really good excuse, I just haven't been there yet. I have been watching my Points though. Anyway, cheers to you on this Friday!
from ozarklily :
CONGRATS on the great loss! Even w/ TOM? Are you kidding? Wow. You impress me on so many levels. I can't even imagine about the law stuff too! ; )
from ms-do :
Poor Dear Nanna...that was a great read!!! I really enjoyed it
from pandionna :
Oh, your poor Nana! Sounds like she's being had by a man much like my father. Yes, players come in all shades of gray. Your tale slayed me, in that touchingly irreverent way. P.S. Asscrack vs Asscrack: Better than Spy vs Spy!
from ozarklily :
Hey! I just read your message to me on my blog but hopped over here to respond: It was "Ricky'sGirl" whose real name excapes me...I try to really make nice concerning her since I sense that fear/ dislike. I'd never mention it to Carole or anyone. I thought it was so weird that the coworkers "saw" it though!
from discodave :
Bear in mind that that particular line of bullshit was spouted by a man who admires Margaret Thatcher. Conservatives scare me (almost as much as Republicans, but they have guns). Dxx
from ozarklily :
Yay! On joining the WW! I actually faced the scale and like you, wasn't surprised by the increase. Damn, damn, damn! : ) I don't know if you saw where I posted a small bitch about MY city, STL, being one which cannot trust our tv stations to carry news which might be objectionable to people who would rather have their heads up Bush's arse. There I go again...
from livingwreck :
The Wiggles rock!!
from pandionna :
Heh, I read your whole diary the other day. I love it! So, if I see those nice young men in their pressed dark suits waiting around outside my window, I'll drop you a line...
from radiogurl :
Thanks for your note! So do you still live in Arizona? (Late as it is tonight I only got to read one entry, but will add you to my favorites and hopefully get to read back a ways shortly.) Nice to meet you, neighbor!
from ozarklily :
Heya! This is "dumb" but if you're like me you might forget to do things that well, take care of "you." Take some aleve, advil, or the like. REALLY You're not in the "good hurt" now, you're in the truly overtaxed hurt. Take the meds, drink lots of water, and you'll recover quicker to get back in the saddle (ouch!). I'm almost insane over Bush. Did you hear of the David Letterman fiasco w/ the White House & CNN reporting he was faking tape of Bush but it wasn't faked? Then night before last, at least in STL, Dave said, "jesus" and it was dropped out-not beeped but where they dip the audio so you hear nothing. Then last night, he was talking about how pretty Julianne Moore is w/ Paul. P said, "Be careful with her, she's married..." Dave said, "Paul! It's not like I'm going to ________" There was a very, very long dropped audio part. Now Dave might've lost his damned mind but he's been on tv a very, very long time. You can't tell me he doesn't know what will "fly" on late night tv. WTH? What could he have said? I wasn't alive for McCarthyism but this sure seems like the start. Also on a local radio station last night, there was a "way back Wednesday" song playing. I forget which one but they beeped "pissed" out of it. That always played before um, 2 months ago. As a fluent profanitiser, am I going to end up in jail? Death row? Jesus Fucking Christ. I'm so voting Kerry! -sorry, another bitch session!
from serenaville :
My first customer? Too cool. Given my tendencies to slack, and get distracted, the road to the Patent office may well be paved with good intentions. However, should the idea take off, I will need legal representation. How does a percentage of the sales sound? ;) Sorry about your ass-kicking. Just think how you'll be able to "flex" your legal "muscle", during the inevitable slander/libel/defamation of character lawsuits. Hee. Back! I can outrun you... you're sore! :D
from livingwreck :
Thank you
from ozarklily :
Give it! How many suits did you buy? Mmm hmmm. Naughty! : ) I bet you're quite the thing. This is good headology (horked from Pratchett) for the New Job to Be.
from ozarklily :
I just love you deary! My "J" (what's up w/ that?) went on for 9 years. What struck me about your story was when you said he was away and you noticed you weren't as sad. I look at "J" one day and in the middle of blotting out the evil dripping from his lips across a table in France where people may or may not have understood how degrading he was being, I looked at him and thought, "Being alone, in this foreign country, where I hardly speak the language, by myself, is preferable than spending one more moment like this." I spoke up and said, "I think you should go home with your family. We're not doing each other any good." He made a scene and left. I walked out of the restaurant and stepped, literally, into the sunshine. I thought, "This is scary but on my own terms." Years really will help.
from serenaville :
What struck me in reading your entry about AJ, was when you wrote of telling him you loved him, and his reply that he could only love you if you weren't fat. Didn't seem to be enough of a factor to keep him out of your bed. Curioser, and curioser. That's just one small example of why he sounds textbook. My version of AJ, was my mentally and emotionally abusive ex-live-in boyfriend, John. Rare is the woman who has no personal 'version', I suspect. Abuse is insidious, experience shows intelligence is no match. I have dreamt of him only once in the last year: After I found out he'd died in hospice at age 40, this past November. Of what, I do not know. I'm unsure whether to call that 'closure', or 'karma'.
from r-y-r :
As reading your diary entry for today and your notes from other readers, I can see that for some reason, no matter how different our lives may be from one anothers, we have a sort of kinship. I have also had a story like AJ's, exept mine was just J and I allowed it to go on for far too long.
from wench77 :
oooh, the AJ story. Hmm. Do we ALL do this?? I have some friends who haven't got such a story, but not many. Yeah. Friends who are "just sleeping together", and then you realize how you are being dicked around. And you end up feeling like shit. And comparing. And wondering why you are not good enough. Funny, tonight I was looking through pics for some ones of buildings and found a whole pile that ob had taken of me. I dream about her sometimes too. And weirdly enough about the other woman she decided was more important than I was. BTW dogs are pretty good with the guilt too.
from hissandtell :
Well, your story today about AJ certainly resonated with me, as I'm sure it will with many, many women. I was in an almost identical relationship years ago - "I love you more than I've ever loved any woman in my life, but I'm not in love with you" and other assorted crapological lines designed to mess with my head and keep me hanging on. It's been more than 15 years since I divested myself of my charismatic, sensuous and handsome AJ (Arsehole Jerk, is it?) and decided all his other women were welcome to him. I still occasionally dream about him, though. Pathetic, isn't it? Love, R xxx
from wench77 :
my gosh, did you read that "Mother's Day is Over" book by Shirley Radl?? She says "the guilt the guilt, the nonstop guilt" hehe. I hope the cow movie was good!
from ozarklily :
Big ups, to my sister out South! You’re spouting of love (most people would say out-pouring but isn’t spouting very, nearly the same thing?? Okay it might go vertical.) has me all a-titter. Love ya sugar! OzarkLily (Kerridwen/ LR...whomever I’m feeling like today).
from ozarklily :
Hey there and thanks!! Laurie read my blog and was wondering who you were. It's so funny how we all have our aliases and they get all corn-fused! : )
from serenaville :
Best luck on finding a job!! Here's hoping you're feeling much improved quickly. Have a relaxing, medicated weekend. :)
from nixtress :
Just popping in to wish you a wonderful weekend. I hope you're feeling better.
from discodave :
I missed it, thankfully. I say thankfully because I'd have kicked my foot through the TV screen and I can't afford a new one... Dxx
from ilmomof3 :
Good luck on the job thing. I have a good friend who works for the City of Gilbert's office as a prosecutor, but it took him forever to get that job. I will keep fingers and toes crossed for you -- and also that you don't have the three week ick we dealt with here recently! Peace, Monica
from nixtress :
I swear by Dayquil. While enduring the cold from Hell, I think it's the only thing that kept me alive. Hope you feel better soon :)
from jerryjayray :
Thanks, Jess. I'm feeling a bit better, and am skipping class in order to sit around even more. I really appreciate your note!
from nixtress :
Happy Easter and thank you for the wishes of better health. I've been able to step away from the Kleenex, always a good thing! :)
from discodave :
Yeah, i got that from Michael Moore's last book - where he thanked Bush for giving him more money, but fucking over the bottom two thirds of the population. Dxx
from hissandtell :
Hello - I just found you through a note at dangerspouse's; I see we have several buddies in common. I'm enjoying your writing very much and look forward to reading more.
from chailife :
Hey thanks! I only had the chance to look back at your first few entries (and today), but I'll be back.
from dangerspouse :
Gee, I'm not sure I want someone who doesn't like raw oysters reading my diary. But...I'll make an exception for you since you write so engagingly. Count yourself blessed! Oh - and thanks for adding me to your Fave Hit Parade! I'm looking forward to reading more of your stuff.
from ms-do :
thanks for adding me to your favourites i look forward to reading yours too.
from wench77 :
HIya! thanks for adding me to your favorites list! Boy, you procrastinate better than I do, I at least did the quiz and the mutterings two different days! I am amused that someone who works for a judge is willing to fix a presidency election with money hehe. EEP re killing the hotel goldfish. Yay for the dancing. I took tango a few years ago, and two sessions of baladi. I think I am better at flamenco, or maybe my teacher is just more demanding (of our exertion AND our money!) LOL! BTW it is cool you mentioned a day trip from Seattle to Vancouver. I have a desire to see Seattle, and a guilty feeling I should visit family in Vancouver... and I can see from your entry that a several-day escape trip to Seattle could be in the offing if ever I make it to BC!! thanks for the idea! :) tah!
from nerddette :
Hi, Thanks for adding me! Yes I read fluidlife regularly and we often post notes to each other. I look forward to reading your diary too. Happy Wednesday! :) t.
from discodave :
Glad to be of service. Don't you just love the hipocrisy coming out of the middle east, US and UK today? Dxx
from la-the-sage :
Some people just give off a wrong vibe. Had a prof like that. Always felt like a doofus in his class. He was never mean, but never seemed overwhelmed with me either. Irked me because I knew I was doing good work. Cool about Judge M2! ~LA
from serenaville :
Thank you for the shout-out, and encouragement to visit my space. I'm honored to have you listed. Please don't work yourself sick, I look forward to your comments. You know I'll be pulling for you hardcore. Best luck!! *HUGS*
from nixtress :
Thank you for the birthday wishes :)
from jerryjayray :
Thanks for the note! You can get nostalgic for college from my journal, and I can gain hope for someday being employed from yours. Cheers!
from marn :
Thank you for the kind note. I giggled when I read about your Nana. I fully intend to also become a force of nature just like her when I get just a bit older, too :)
from serenaville :
Hahahaha. Thanks for the comment. I only mentioned, so I could feel like I was at the lunch, sharing what I would have shared had I actually been there. Heh. Sorry. :)
from serenaville :
Thank you for the link! I enjoyed the entry about the all-female "power dinner". They DO sound enjoyable, and worthy of being a bi-weekly event! How I miss times like that, out with friends. For the record, I'm 'au natural' currently, but prefer to be shaved. I've never waxed. Aren't you glad I shared?? :D
from la-the-sage :
Hey, thanks for buddy listing me and for saying such nice things about my rather strident opinions. I look forward to archive diving here and having you join the fray over at my place. ~LA
from discodave :
Thanks - you did a pretty good job, I'd say. Dxx
from discodave :
I kinda like those sociopathic kitties, you know? George really will be going to Mars if he can, if you ask me. Dxx
from discodave :
It's OK - my guestbook is a fickle minx. She gets possessive now and again, methinks. Notes, on the other hand, are easy ;) Dxx
from nixtress :
Thanks for the listen and you're welcome for the memory. Sometimes it's the small things that remind us.
from nixtress :
I'm beyond jealous. I've been coveting that new Norah cd in a big way. Listen a time or two for me until I can buy it meself, wouldja?
from jorod74 :
hope i put a dent in that anti-valentine's sentiment. peace, love and understanding, from afar...
from discodave :
Cheers m'dear. And feel free to stop by Glasgow on your travels. Dxx
from jorod74 :
don't fret. i am good. thank you email is like manna, babe. thanks
from discodave :
Guestbooks...ughh. I forgot to reply to your question about the Office - I love it, although it is one of those "laughing at the tragedy of peoples' lives" programmes. Just try and imagine Basil Fawlty using words like pro-active and downsizing and you'll get an idea of the tone. Dxx
from discodave :
Perhaps I've been playing on nationstates a little too much... I'll go for the jobs page (although the government here want to change it so you have to opt out of organ donation rather than opt it). Dxx
from discodave :
I tried posting this in the guestbook, but who knows if it worked or not (or if it worked twice): I think I seriously need to consider alternative employment. Or maybe sell a kidney. But other than that, it's no biggie. Don't worry about the double posts, though - I'll delete them if you want? Dxx
from discodave :
Nothing wrong with disturbing films, although I confess to preferring to see them in daylight hours. I'm a wuss, really. Dxx
from bitch-haven :
Feelin Bitchy lately??? Then come to Bitch-Haven and tell us all about it!!!
from discodave :
To be fair, that quiz was kind of tricky - I spent 4 years in art school and didn't have a clue on a couple of the questions. Dxx
from jorod74 :
Check out my entry for today. 1-13-04. It isn't much but i was trying to have fun. maybe you will like it. hope so, wrote it to show you what insomnia and a diary can do. keep writing, and peace.
from montoya :
Good to be appreciated. Thanks.
from discodave :
Oh, I wouldn't worry - he seems to have a knack for screwing it up. Christ, this is the man who got hives during the recounts - even his body rats him out. Dxx
from discodave :
Heh - it's more arrogance and an opinionated attitude about the English, but yes, that sounds about right. Thanks. Dxx
from discodave :
Oh lordy - a spelling mistake in my first note to you...sigh. Did I come across as a touch arrogant there? Probably. Ah well, at least you know the truth early on ;) Dxx
from discodave :
Hmm - I'm not normally so eager to add diries as a favourite unless there's at least one disgusting story or rude picture, but in your case I'll make an exception. Dxx
from jorod74 :
welcome to the Dland. I am touched by your thoughts about my diary. Let your heart speak, and it will speak volumes- not only to us, but to yourself. write often, and we will read.
