Ahoy!!! Woah, you actually logged onto this thing??? I guess great minds think alike. Well...if Mario is interested in interviewing me, I'd love the opportunity. For one, it's always good to continue interviewing to keep your skills updated and also to know that I am in charge of my career. And hell, if he pays so well, if he offers a job, who knows!!??? He can send me an email: duggan_lea@yahoo.com Or he can call me (after work hours): 650-464-6446... Or you can send me his info and I'll drop him a line. Thanks Chica! ~Nina

bulletin: old home week @ d-land. spread the news.
from beagle47 :
it's the pixy dust. works every time. congratulations, i am very happy for you. all my best!
from beagle47 :
i figured as much too, which is why i also sprinkled the pixy dust. sorry 'bout the spelling.
from beagle47 :
i received your guest book wish and here are my thoughts: first, on the motivation issue...you never know when commanding a knowledge of anything (even astronomy, Myra) may give you the opening into another's otherwise closed mind. thus, if you are truly a humanitarian, you will find interest in every little thing, with the hope that you may find the only other on earth who needs to know that someone else can relate. with regard to any test: relax. fear, dread, anxiety only serves as barrier to knowledge and conveying it. this is solid logic. the fact is, no matter how little or how much you know when you go into that test, the worst thing you can do is scare yourself out of ensuring that every shred of knowledge you possess is conveyed to the instructor through that test. so, relax. assume by the morning of the test that the test is finished. why? not because you've taken it, but because you've already acquired every shred of knowledge you can have on the subject and nothing, not anxiety, not worry, not even complete confidence will better or worsen that condition. lastly (and this i know), even if you fail the test, fail-out of S.F.S.U, it is not the end of the road but just another road you travel to your destination as humanitarian. frankly, i think fate would be the explanation. thus, if you do fail (i doubt it) consider that in the future it will make sense why that occurred. if none of this helps, i will assure you of one thing: professor nature is to be a much easy grader at semester's end. why? if you grade too low, no one will take your class next year, the school loses money, you look like a jerk and you never get tenure (or, if you have it, everyone thinks you're a jerk in the lunchroom on the Monday after grade-curves are discovered). thus, i assure you, everyone passes every State university class in the end. i hope this helps, Myra. if not, wait for your actual destiny. it is likely right around the corner. peacers.
from beagle47 :
on rare occasion my timing is impeccable. glad to know we were on the same schedule!
from maryam741 :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Slightly late... I still have a little over a month of being a teen, so I can still be emo, yay!
from beagle47 :
good riddance. all my best!
from beagle47 :
argh. bites. crappy way to start a new year. however, you did survive, did not harm anyone else, will likely plead to a lesser charge (for 5 grand? better), go to some drinking/driving classes and stop driving under the influence. all-in-all it could be a lot worse...but, i'm sorry to read it. that really bites.
from maryam741 :
:-/ Happy New Years (late). That sucks about the DUI... I say you appeal directly to Arnold as Governator. Good luck.
from beagle47 :
argh! andrew rejected the e-mail as spam, thus: http://beagle47.com contains the holiday message 2005. please visit? all my best...-=b47=-
from beagle47 :
a welcome update. what else would there be to day?
from beagle47 :
see_rite_through@hotmail.com..."you've got mail!"
from beagle47 :
happy belated! hope you're working again soon even if work is over-rated. (money, on the other hand...)
from maryam741 :
It seems that I have procured a job at a Krispy Kreme, although I haven't said an official yes yet. MacDonald's, Krispy Kreme... Why can't I work for a remotely respectable place? Oh, and if you want a password just pick a random word and lemme know, I'll add you...
from gigglesalot :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!! when i'm home we need to go celebrate!
from maryam741 :
Happy Birthday! You are now legal to drink in Canada... And good luck on the job hunt, I just got out of school and am hunting too. It certainly is frustrating.
from waterstain :
$2.85!! i think my heart stopped momentarily. i'll assume you live in california, then. when my friends and i roadtripped last summer, you could almost *see* the thought bubbles full of obscenities appear above our heads simultaneously as we pulled into our first californian gas station.
from beagle47 :
argh. sorry 'bout the car, but here's hoping life's a little grander by the time this note reaches you...
from maryam741 :
W00T! W00T! for new car-age!
from impertinent :
What's wrong with moving up here to Canada, eh?
from delstrego :
I stumbled onto you during one of my times where I was reading random bloggers. I liked what I read.
from maryam741 :
Heh... there's a girl here at Smith whose name is Laura Bush and I heard a rumor that she wrote an article into the school newspaper saying she supported Bush, especially because of his stance on protecting the sanctity of marriage. We're all like... um... do you know where you are...
from beagle47 :
poetic! so...what are the last lines, then? (scratching head...). argh. just can't get this one right...yet.
from beagle47 :
hey! someone reads it! ;)
from beagle47 :
it's weirder. if not for the traffic on july 18, 2004, guess where i would have been for dinner? read back to the entry for a hint. cheers to good karma (and big tippers).

from maryam741 :
Rock on! Happy birthday! Damn me for working on a stupid poetry project and not wishing you a happy b-day! Today, gay marriage just became legal in my state! So yay, for both!
from golfwidow :
Happy belated birthday!
from beagle47 :
shush. there is no better day than your own...revel in it! ;)
from beagle47 :
happy birthday, ataraxy. you share yours with tou-mou. i hope today and the rest of your life bring you untold joys. all my best.
from kayano :
Drat, I was about to try and prove you wrong, but then I tried going to the old entries. O well. For now I suggest just clicking previous, and it should be fixed soon.
from maryam741 :
Coolness! I like! And I'm glad you found a title because otherwise I would have felt obliged to help... And you would have gotten a very bad title:/
from beagle47 :
you are awfully nice to write so. and, while i am happily married to a princess of a woman whom to this day i cannot believe hasn't awakened each day in horror at the thought of having taken that vow, i think she would not mind me writing: cute. as. hell. ;) all my best, and thanks again...
from maryam741 :
You underestimate yourself. The pics are fabulous!!! You look gorgeous!
from maryam741 :
Not to worry, it was a good wow. It's the type of story which you have to read carefully because there's details popping out at you in every sentence. I like that. Sorry I was so ambiguous the first time.
from maryam741 :
That story... wow, I don't know what to say, just... wow...
from maryam741 :
Your readership is always greatly appreciated as are your comments. Good to know you liked it. Did you realize it was a sequel?
from miss-edith :
Oh, but if I put up pictures, people would hunt me down and try to steal it from me because it's just that pretty.
from maryam741 :
(Sympathizes) He's so obviously pathetic that he had to land a job advertising for an eating disorders clinic. The only way he can do that is to create anorexia in people and then send them to the clinic. Please don't take offense if I'm being too harsh. For what it's worth, when I was twelve, my Dad told me I wasn't thin I was "healthy."
from maryam741 :
Very cool, I don't like poetry and especially when it doesn't rhyme, but the imagery really does catch you. It's so raw. I like raw writing. At first, I thought it was like a murder, then self-mutilation. I should probably read it again.
from maryam741 :
Holy crap! That story was friggin' amazing. I loved it. I wanted more. It owned, it rocked, and I don't usually gush like this. Let's hear a round of applause for public service announcements that don't preach!
from waterstain :
is your design your own? in any case, i really like it. that picture is great. one of the buildings there is the hotel i stayed in when i went to nyc last summer. talk about a room with a view.
from waterstain :
i'm afraid i wouldn't fit in at all in california. not at all. not just because i'm a member of the vast right wing conspiracy... but, well, yeah. mostly because of that. (what my conspiratorial cohorts don't know is, i wouldn't have voted for arnold even if i /was/ californian, and i'm not entirely convinced that john ashcroft isn't a lunatic. i'm somewhat disdainfully labeled the bleeding heart of the bunch, which is pretty laughable, but nonetheless...)
from impertinent :
...and Canadian spelling too, eh! It just didn't occur to me at the time, eh.
from maryam741 :
Coin toss, eh? That's a tough assignment, good job!
from beagle47 :
<edit>: the word-count, brilliant; the story, genius.

from beagle47 :
hi. look, i'm really sorry. but you have to know by now...i'm a dog. i don't talk. i bark. forgive me? ;) (hope he/she blinks first).
from beagle47 :
ah, now i know where i got that strep throat. i'm fairly certain there are many thousands who are hoping to find and thank you. ;) hope you're feeling better. personally, i feel like *crap*! 8)
from jzyjsmalls :
I hope you feel better!!
from impertinent :
I used to get strep a lot. So often, I really only noticed when there weren't white globules all over my throat. And then I had my tonsils removed and things were right and good in the universe again.
from impertinent :
I think I found you through People Who Listed "High Fidelity" As a Wicked Movie. I took a peek then gobbled up your archives.
from maryam741 :
Thanks so much for commenting on my story. Glad you liked it. There's actually a second part which I am thinking of reworking and putting in for the next issue. Best of luck starting school!
from beagle47 :
oh, one more thing? Tony B. would be proud of you. ;)
from beagle47 :
i knew that. ;)
from sam :
Whoa. If I ever get tired of Toronto, I'm moving to San Francisco!
from beagle47 :
funny, i could have written the same thing to you, but you beat me to it! ;) sweet dreams, ataraxy, and thank you.
from hacim :
Hi. This is a note as to your Band entry? My friend really enjoyed your post and mentioned it on her Live Journal, so i read it. Here's what i thought (i commented on HER journal, so you'll have to go there to read it): http://www.livejournal.com/users/hostile_shadow/24074.html?view=56330#t56330 . . . I AM PILEOFHEADS, and i thought your post was shit. anyways, if you weant to leave feed-back on what i had to say, leave a post on her Journal as i don't plan on comming back to your journal. Or, if you'd like, e-mail me, pill_lust@hotmail.com works or cash@superiorman.com i check both.
from maryam741 :
About the bands, I think it's like that with a lot of things. Artists like Van Gogh were completely psycho and killed themselves, Sylvia Plath killed herself. For whatever reason, true talent seems to be ephemeral.
from maryam741 :
thanks so much! It really means a lot. (And I suppose if you wait in line long enough, I can give you a discount, jk.)
from sporq :
Of course Zwan is /nothing/ compared to what the Smashing Pumpkins were. Their new cd is a negative fifty billion on a scale compared to the pumpkins. But in reality, the pumpkins were Billy Corgan. And Zwan is Billy Corgan. Just a happier version. I saw Zwan in concert in Toronto, and I have to say I was highly impressed, it was almost like seeing the pumpkins. I think they are much more impressive live than they are on cd. But I agree with you that they're nothing to the pumpkins.
from impertinent :
I totally disagree with you on the Soundgarden thing. If someone in a band says something like, "Yeah, we don't really care about the stuff we're putting out and I don't really want to play with these people anymore, but I will," I think it's almost as bad as... on-stage choreography.
from corkyscrewd :
crazy. i had this exact same thought this morning. except, add in losing alice in chains/layne staley, and pearl jam as being one of the bands that stuck around, but doesnt suck. and zwan, my biggest problem with them is that they're too happy, and the smashing pumkins were great because they were dark. but yea, rock on. i honestly couldnt have said it better myself.
from sopretty :
WHOA. I agree with you about the whole music...thing. the rolling stones are good....but I wouldn't crap my pants if they didn't make music anymore,ya know.i've never understood certain peoples obsession.
from golfwidow :
It's unlocked now; the person who said they were "just private" apparently couldn't prove it, so they took me off their list. Thanks for your support. :)
from golfwidow :
Thank you for looking at my diary.
from lobsterchick :
Hi. I found your diary through your banner, and I love it. It's very engaging, and I like your layout.
from beagle47 :
Jeopardy! for no reason. i read your diary, read your answers, clicked to your notes and the thought came to me "ataraxy would be good at Jeopardy!" now, that may be random, existential, insightful, a message from God, or a billion other things, but nonetheless, that is what popped into my tiny little head. so, go forth with it, for what it's (not?) worth! ;)
from beagle47 :
thank you, my friend. you would make an excellent jeopardy! contestant...peace. (and i really mean that).
from sam :
As it turns out, "smells like ass" seems to work just the same way in Canada. Thx for the tips...
from prncsscindy :
shannon is right, they did get their name from x-files. there was an episode where there were lots of people named eve. or something like that. why i'm telling you this i have no clue. goodbye my dear
from felicezombie :
as per your request...the five questions madness wasn't my idea, I was just one of many participants. Also if you read through my entries you will notice that a few entries back I stated I dont have time to do them for anymore people...please find a more current participant to ask you questions...
from beagle47 :
random...<grinning>. nothing is random unless we believe. so, a deliberate "guestbook signing" to a great spirit of choice. live-on, ataraxy (and don't forget to write about it along the way...). peace. (and i really mean that).
from ninabean :
i dont think i've ever known any "jennys".....now that i think about it there WAS a chick named "Jen" who lived a few houses down that my sister hated when we were kids...... i'm thinkin its a family curse that we're just condemned to livin with hateful jens........ argggggghhhhh...
from utter-views :
Reviewing isn't anything right now since we're on hiatus for a week or so. Basically if you check out the diary it has the rules, which all the diaries have to follow (or no review) and you need to follow the scoring which I can send if you want. And I can put your diary link up in the read on if you want. And a short bio if you want my e-mail is in the diary (everywhere) lol. Glad you are interested.
from utter-views :
Hey just stopping by, I wanted to get the word out that we're looking for new reviewers. So far no one has applied :o( And yeah I've signed other places, no luck yet but hey we have a good review site over here & need good reviewers. I'm trying to find some...
from jzyjsmalls :
I love that song! Yay!!
from jzyjsmalls :
Well darnit, you signed off before I got a chance to thank you. You were really nice to me just now and I really appreciate your help and caring. So, thanks Mira, you're awesome.
from jzyjsmalls :
Happy birthday (yes, belated, but still...)!! How was your date?
from sporq :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You'll catch up to me soon.
from jzyjsmalls :
Whoa, you guys are going to the Coldplay concert?! I'm going too!! I'm heading up with a bunch of Stanford friends. We should meet up or something, or at least try to run into each other briefly. I'll IM you + Abhaya later or something. :-)
from californican :
You don't get it. One night of sex (Father's Day) + 9 months of waiting = New Mother (Mother's Day). I didn't get it either, don't feel bad =)
from jzyjsmalls :
Wow, that is hilarious! I can't believe the teacher said that...but then again, I can't believe the student actually asked the question in the first place. LOL, I bet that kid either went bright red or ghostly white when she said that.
from beagle47 :
now THAT was a kick-ass entry! i hope it is fate and perfection...(here's hoping there's a post phone-call entry). peace.
from neshachan :
Thank you for the note. :D
from beagle47 :
i meant to start that with "thanks so much, but..." i'm going to sleep. 'night! ;-)
from beagle47 :
you are waaay too nice. here's the deal: high school is only great to look back on, so just hang-in. life is really much better after it's over. (assuming, of course, that you go to college, so plan on doing that okay?). peace. (and i really mean that).
from jzyjsmalls :
Hey. Thanks for the comment! I thought it was really insightful and I'm glad you made the point about preventing sex vs. promoting violence; I think I'll write about that in the near future. Cool that you know so much about this stuff (statistics etc.); I also liked the point about the "pro-lifers." Oh, and I agree with Abhaya: the picture is cool :-)
from damotava :
like the picture =)
from jzyjsmalls :
Late, but...Procrastination Theory: Brilliant. Hehehe, thanx for the guestbook signing; I'm off to take my last final, the end of all stress for the next 2 weeks! Ta ta :), - Jake
from miss-edith :
I am going to send you an email later, but for now I just wanted to say thank you for your note.
from beagle47 :
just read your note again and i really appreciate it. which is why i'm responding to your poll "yes, of course i would read a private diary whether or not i could be found out because i'm a nosy little brat on my best days." peace.
from miss-edith :
You can check your stats from the diaryland page, and one of your options is "referrers". This will show you what people clicked on to get to your page. Thanks for reading!
from beagle47 :
thank you so much for the nice thoughts and linkage. continue to write your truthes! peace.
from sam :
i would kiss back. i know, i know, but i would. i like kissing. would i do more? well, maybe.
from phatgrrl :
hey, I publish poetry under the name Ataraxian Noise Drift. this may sound dumb but I was wondering how you came up with the name Ataraxy, and if the Ataraxia name has any special meaning to you.
from soliloquymj :
You spelled "Memento" wrong.
from sam :
Have you ever looked at www.whowouldbuythat.com ? They point to all sorts of weird things for sale on eBay (though I can't say I find many of them tempting).
from of-her-soul :
D) All of the above. All of the above, or move to a different country.
from corkyscrewd :
hey your diary is so cool, i wish you would update more often :) keep on rockin
from corkyscrewd :

from of-her-soul :
Hehe, thanks. I like it too.
from californican :
Hey, FUCK diary reviews I think it's completely retarded that diaryland lets diaryreviews stay around. They're using diarylands free server to run their own review site. Fuck'em. That's why I don't submit mine. It puts me down and they will tell you your thoughts aren't as important as theirs. fuck'em. And who cares? It's what YOU want in your diary. Screw reviews. I definately come back :) 5/5 -Steven
from of-her-soul :
I happen to think your diary rocks. -M
from diaryreviews :
your review is up @ http://diaryreviews.diaryland.com/ataraxy.html
from of-her-soul :
Aloha Mira, in answer to your previously posted profile, "If you know the song that's from, and who it's by, you win." The correct answer'd be Promise, which is an incredibly awesome song by Eve 6! Outage. -M
from californican :
God. You're awesome. I feel naked without my watch, too. I borrowed your "stress" entry. Fellow Californian and RHCP fan. God, will you marry me? -S
from midniteradio :
she IS hot. lol. i know, everyone thinks we're insane but honest to god. i would fuck her. when they come back out here. we're both gonna go, k? i am totally taking you. heheehe..
from eviltwin105 :
Drink up on that pineapple juice too!
from eviltwin105 :
hey Mira, interesting quote of Danny's, i'll just smile and nod. no wait, that's a little too much barbie-ish. Am I makeing sense? I havent spoken english in so long it's bizzare. See you on the 4th of July peace love and a gros bisous from me to you. Megan
from jzyjsmalls :
I totally agree with your literary taste. Philip Pullman is the best, and His Dark Materials has got to be one of the greatest fantasy trilogies ever. Good stuff!
