from ottodixless :
Who is this strange person updating on Diaryland? Yay for your unsmokingness and job. And the rest.
from randomrabbit :
He's started to shake my hand as well now when I see him and I really don't get it. Seems blokes baffle me just as much as the girls.
from randomrabbit :
But maybe itís some sort of primeval instinct that makes men want to procreate with women with far from fabulous hair because theyíre likely to be less sullied or something. Like women being attracted to balding men because theyíre more fertile, which isnít true but Iím clinging to nevertheless.
from kristoli :
That damn clock is a nightmare.
from ottodixless :
I don't think giving up on hope is right, since hope is the main reason to keep going (Though it's also the only reason why we have religions). It's about keeping hopes going even when they seem to be disappointed. I've kind of thought about living by a kind of fatalism, but it gets pretty boring. When I was about 20, I broke my father's old camera; he'd died a few years before. That upset me a lot. There is something about cameras.
from doctoredjnr :
Oh and one other thing, if the comment about the shoes and the dress show up three or four times in your guestbook I am sorry but every time I tried to post there I got an error message.
from doctoredjnr :
I know enough to know what I like and what I don't, and that I doubt I would look good in one but who knows? A few months ago in the city I saw a quote about dresses on a chalkboard outside a secondhand bookshop, which I really wish I could remember.
from doctoredjnr :
I like your dress, as for the shoes I know too little about shoes to comment properly, but they are nice(?).
from randomrabbit :
Nicely done!
from canned-air :
I have no such thing! From two notes ago: git?
from canned-air :
I just sent this to myself. I'm officially a dumbass. "Haha. Corporate my arse! Slightly corporate, but still an arts organization nonetheless. Today I wore a black t-shirt, black jeans, sneakers and a Fidel Castro inspired army hat to work. I do get the messages directly on my phone...the e-mail comes and then I can just follow the link. Get some instant messaging service and then we're talking real office hijinx."
from canned-air :
The only problem is this: my suit is at home. At the moment I can do nothing in the office...why a suit? I'd feel so out of my element--it would be like Halloween.
from canned-air :
This is fun. All the message notifications get sent to my fancy corporate cell-phone and I can respond in the middle of boring meeting #7. Anyway, I will set the site up tonight--if you're willing to pay me $10 a month for the services detailed below:
from canned-air :
I have a site of nude pics too, but it is $10 a month for access to my webcam archive and video series. New photos are updated bi-weekly, one video per week and extras like: diet tips, fashion advice and my sex advice column.
from canned-air :
Wait--you have a livejournal? AND it is filled with happy thoughts? Now I'm worried.
from canned-air :
I know. I'm all corporate now--I don't know if I should congratulate myself or kick my own ass.
from greentealeaf :
ah! m. digital media. it's relatively new i think. i am loving it! do you know anyone there still?
from heelandlass :
Ooh try that Mr Muscle unblocker stuff before you get a plumber out. It's amazing stuff. Or stand up on top of the ladder with a bucket of water and pour it all into your loo really quickly - sometimes the force of the water gushing in can unblock it. All worth a try before spending £80million on a guy to come round to tut at you and shake his head....and good luck in your new home, how lovely - all those new things. xxx
from randomrabbit :
Congratulations on the ladder.
from canned-air :
So what are you saying? If I take you out for drinks you'll curate me into a group show?
from canned-air :
I think you should look at my diary, add me to your buddy list and delete that penisface guy. I hate him.
from heelandlass :
Oh phew.
from greentealeaf :
happy belated birthday m'lady! all the best for the spaceboy.
from penisface :
Please explain "white goods." Thank you ma'am.
from heelandlass :
I am liking the sound of this boyf very much. very much indeed.
from penisface :
I'm sorry for misleading you for so long. Haha. I would've given my age away sooner, but I was afraid it would scare away all the 14 year old girls. There's always a chance I'll go back to purely written entries...and then you can forget about this incident forever. How old did you think I was?
from heelandlass :
Aw, the cuteness! I would have loved that too. Get well soon Missus! x
from heelandlass :
Yeah, I'm getting some wine. I.Just.Can't.Take.It.Any.More! Apologies for the blubbing link. Even though his leg's getting chopped off, it's kind of a happy ending. He kept his humour up at least. And he got a cup of tea. And a dram. But on the whole...blub. Have a good weekend. And tell more about the surprisingly well bit - well, when you want to obviously. Smooches xxxxxxxxx
from heelandlass :
Remember we had that wee chat about old men making us cry once? <A HREF = "http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/4677844.stm"> blub </A>. Hope you're doing okay. xxx
from discodave :
Nah, nothing so tragic - a shop sign actually - more suited to lj, but you'll appreciate it, I think. Dxx
from discodave :
You too, hon. Oh, remind me sometime that I have to take a photo of something that'd make a great icon for you... Dxx
from girlsdontcry :
Do you know what is more upsetting than Christmas cards? Christmas emails from ... PEOPLE I DON'T EVEN KNOW. Work ones. That say "click here to see your Christmas card". Yeah, because nothing says "I care" like a mailshot. Having said that, it's December 8 and I've received exactly NO Christmas cards at work, so maybe everyone's realised they're ridiculous (except Maureen).
from heelandlass :
Thanks for my birthday wishes! It wouldn't have been the same without you! xxx
from lsmonkey :
Oh, i hope nothing has happened to you - i mean the same as what happened to me. You were at Tate Modern yesterday afternoon? I wonder if we saw each other (i was the skinny chap with the raincloud above his head).
from heelandlass :
Ooh yum. Me too. Sluuuuurp.
from lsmonkey :
I just read that entry. Yikes! When i used to work at a Jobcentre several years ago, i fainted during a training session and got taken to hospital in an ambulance. That was fun.
from lsmonkey :
I am probably being thick here, but "trapped wind"?! Why so? Office friendly answer please.
from lsmonkey :
Ha! I am sure that your life is more interesting than mine. Which money sapping vice did you manage to get rid of, or is it not for public consumption? Hope all well with you.
from heelandlass :
Ooh, exciting. You should defo go - seeing as you want practice at things, at the very least this will be good interview practice. Good Luck xxx
from lsmonkey :
Best of luck with the interview. Excuse my ignorance, but what is the "Saturday Pravda"? Hope all well with you.
from girlsdontcry :
I think you should go for the interview (writing tasks/group activities). And see what happens after that.
from heelandlass :
Haha - they can just get really steaming drunk and feel themselves up. You see - in actually discussing this like rational women, we have come up with the solution. Men just need to get bigger boobies and all will be well. Keep taking those pills!!
from heelandlass :
aren't most of them man-boobed anyway?! Hahaha. I might join you on your crusade. They're obsessed with boobs anyway - this serves them right!!!
from heelandlass :
All of it's true. I have decided to hang up my womanly shoes and become a mindful wife. I am also thinking of taking up the burka so that people don't have to have the inconvenience of looking at me.
from heelandlass :
I think we owe it to society, don't you? I have already lined up a decent nursery, primary school and secondary. I can't believe I've been wasting my life away like this. What on earth was I thinking? Oh sorry, I'm all confused, I'm a woman aren't I? I'm not supposed to THINK!!
from heelandlass :
Ach! You beat me to the 'women who have children later on in life are selfish bitches who deserve to be locked up forever' story! Isn't it bizarre? We'll be getting stoned next (and I don't mean from wacky backy) for wearing trousers and drinking beer!
from girlsdontcry :
Good recruitment agencies? Hahaha, you're funny! They always will find some reason that they can't find you a new position that is all your fault and never involves the fact that THEY'RE REALLY LAZY AND MAKE UP LOTS OF STORIES THAT AREN'T TRUE AND JUST SAY WHAT THEY THINK PEOPLE WANT TO HEAR. Does that sound bitter?
from heelandlass :
Hmm, that person's name wasn't Joyce was it? I worked with a holy holy who used to leave post its on my desk saying 'those who drink and dance shall be damned'. Nice. 10 Bloody Mary's Please!! x
from heelandlass :
Oh, love can conquer all. And so can pumpkin soup. Sluuuurp.
from greentealeaf :
oh thanks a lot for that flattering reference to my city. btw, i was soo relieved you didn't post any pics of those scary monsters yesterday. i would've like, passed out, y'know.
from iwik :
Er, oops. All fixed now.
from lsmonkey :
Oh Shaun Ryder is a bloody oil painting compared to me :(
from lsmonkey :
I was 34 on Monday. I feel like Shaun Ryder on a bad day.
from randomrabbit :
I can't better St Elmo's Fire, but can I suggest The Karate kid. There's angst but also there's karate. And an old Japanese man.
from lsmonkey :
Oh i was musing about the future and wallowing in self-pity at the same time, believe me.
from heelandlass :
You could be right about weird science, I was so in love with Wyatt that I couldn't think straight. Now I think about it - that probably was teen horn after all! Although it did have the struggle of the geek vs. the popular kid, so in a way it did tackle teenage angst, only not in a very angst ridden way. Okay you win, but I'll still come to the festival!
from heelandlass :
Oh yes - don't forget Weird Science and About Last Night. Although St. Elmos fire and The Breakfast Club are by far the best...I'll come to your festival!
from greentealeaf :
hahaha. what's the little bugger's name? he's adorable!
from heelandlass :
I hope you're okay getting back home then, it will probably be a bit calmer by home time. Tony Blair's just been on the radio saying it's looking more and more like it's a terrorist attack. Glad your friends are accounted for. Mine are as well thank goodness. Terrifying.
from heelandlass :
Phew. Are you at home or work? Stay safe (obviously!).xxx
from heelandlass :
Are you okay?
from heelandlass :
oh good. i thought i lost you! xxx
from greentealeaf :
;)
from greentealeaf :
ha ha, oh dear! the imagery is killing me.
from greentealeaf :
you ought to spank The Other One then.
from lsmonkey :
Ah yes, ze wide open space of ze car park (fumbles knowingly with beard), this can only mean one of two things - unpaid parking tickets or a profound feeling of abandonment. Nurse Reich, my Curly-Wurly please...
from greentealeaf :
please don't feel guilty, there are things you have no control over .. if you need a shoulder or an ear, you know where to find it. (somewhat david lynch-like, huh? but y'know what i mean ..)
from pollytrotsky :
i would make you a cup of tea if i were there. i really would.
