from jason75 :
wow.. I miss you diary for a couple of years and look what happens.. AMAZING
from bakfiets :
Hi Sheila, is this you? Do sent me an email, have been looking for you all over the place (even tried to contact Dirk father (and failed)). Would love to hear from you. Minout
from silverluna :
hello. I was reading my old notes and saw your old comment. i was reading about all you've been through. Wow. Will you be updating soon??
from bekkering :
I love jouw schrijven!
from slumper :
As tempting as it is I think I better stay put for a while and sort out some form of Big Plan before I rush off to live overseas. Next year I'd say it'll be happening, but for now there's too much happening in Australia for me to leave. But I'm still coming to China! 1st-10th of July. Will you still be there?
from bantenhut :
where do you think you'll go next? and, my poetry class is talking about Neruda right now!
from curiouoso :
Thanks for looking at my blog. China sounds interesting where you're at. In 1 hour I have to put my dog, Midnite, down. It's so hard, we've had him 14 years! I don't know that your students would understand....Midnite has always been an indoor dog even though he's a Black Lab and has weighed as much as 120 lbs. Thanks again for reading, Curiouoso*
from dinosaurorgy :
I'm not sure if you've looked at your diary lately or not.. but none of your images are hosted anymore.
from slumper :
Ahh how cute! Update: Arriving in Shanghai on June 30th and staying for a week.
from boombasticat :
Nothing wrong, at all, with having favorites. Admirable, even.
from slumper :
DEFinately! I'll have a vague idea of what's happening once I get back to Australia. PS Dried pigs faces? Jesus H.
from slumper :
hey miss, how much longer are you going to be in china? I'm going to be in shanghai from june 24th-29th, any hot tips for me?
from bantenhut :
hi! i just saw the movie The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, which came out a few months ago or so. the very last song of the movie, if you didn't already know, is that david bowie song with the lyric, "she's so swishy in her satin and tat" -- and when i heard that i KNEW i had seen it on some diaryland blog! anyway, what a great song. i guess that's all i really meant to say, ha.
from newgyptian :
ah, the dilemmas of being third culture. it becomes even more fun when you're a third culture hyphenated american. this book sounds interesting though. i definitely want to get my hands on it. oh, also, just to introduce myself - i stumbled across your blog a while ago and have silently been reading it since. one of my best friends lives in shanghai, but he's not very good about explaining what life there is all about. have enjoyed what you've had to say. look forward to more!
from bantenhut :
no way. A "fucking bitch," with those exact words? My gosh. are you two incredibly close and she was joking, or is it serious? AND, i'm assuming that your entry called "Talkin' Bout A Revolution" is named after Tracy Chapman's song of the same title? I love that song! anyway, good luck.
from m0nique :
Yeah , so not keen to go teach there now.
from suzza :
I, too, have been reading for a short while -- random, small community -- it's funny, you are doing something similar to what I want to do. ESSAYS ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY. I guess there is life after you graduate and you leave the pile of books and post-it notes. I have a friend in china right now, and she's so busy with what's she's doing, it's hard to communicate. I guess this is what I do instead. I read. Anyway. Thanks. Suz.
from bantenhut :
sounds like you're teaching them information they might not hear otherwise. your diary is interesting. it's fascinating to hear about other countries. best of luck to ya!
from t85225 :
Hey... also found you though your banner, and after reading the prerequisite latest 4-5 entries, was compelled to start at the back and work my way forward. Got as far as Travel Food... and now I'm so damn hungry I've got to stop reading :) Tres cool, I love your style.
from boredlaura :
Found you through your banner. I don't know if this counts as irony, but I can always access google, CNN, yahoo and the BBC but my office has banned access to anonymouse.org!
from poolagirl :
Clicked your banner. Love your stuff!
from slumper :
I am so, SO into your regular updates of late.
from bantenhut :
wow...never heard of anonymouse. hope your site doesn't get blocked. I haven't been reading it long, but yeah. aie. :(
from tooths :
you are a great writer.
from slumper :
I'm so happy about my plans aswell! Yeah my friend and I are probably going to look into au pairing in europe - seems like a pretty sweet deal and working in dodgy pubs will probably get real old real fast! Every time I read your blog I'm filled with jealousy - I admire what you're doing. I can't wait to get the hell out of Australia before I lose my mind and form a militia.
from dearkate :
what is shanghai?
from serenaville :
*Waves to Coldandgray* I clicked in off your banner, read through a handful of entries, and enjoyed what I'd perused. Just thought I'd be nice, and leave a note to say I'd been tiptoeing about. I'll check back again. Take care! - Serena
from jason75 :
If you are in the habit of sharing your password I would love to know it. sausageroll@optusnet.com.au I am lost without my fix!
from coldandgray :
I have been reading you for a long time & enjoy your writing very much. I hope you will share your password with me if you are locking up. colleenfalling AT gmail DOT com.
from jason75 :
hey.. you are getting closer to Oz all the time.. surely we must be a stop somewhere along the line
from coexistapart :
I do not want to sound redundant, so I suppose I should not claim to have clicked through on your banner. I just find your current move to Shanghai very interesting as I just got back from being in Hong Kong for six weeks, during which time I went to mainland China for parts. I was in Shanghai for the weekend...the grimy, polluted city that it is. It's not up on my itinerary page yet, but I was there. Will read more when I do not have to get up early in the morning....
from sadistiksoul :
oooh fun
from coldandgray :
is everything OK?
from raven72d :
You're an interesting and charming find... I will be reading along... Though...one note: the French (especially Bretons and Provencals can indeed be nice, but in the end...they still do speak Gibberish (i.e., Foreign).
from coldandgray :
CONGRATS!
from candoor :
one more banner follower here, inspired by your wanderings :)
from meangyal :
y? where do u live .......... from meangyal kk c-ya
from invisibledon :
ended up here via the banner - hey
from jason75 :
So my having big feet has its advantages over there. More presents. I always wondered why people said having big feet was a good sign. Now I know. You know it is sad when people need an excuse to get drunk and stoned. I think "day of the week" is reason enough
from candoor :
Amsterdam appeals to the old hippie in me, but I never did get there when I had the means and being poor these days = minimal travel... but at least i can read about other places :)
from hdrerssacge :
WHa? whats the purpose of your webpage, porpoise?
from jason75 :
We are still waiting for your profound influence on Australia. No language barriers except for our slang. Which reminds me, am so hungry I could eat the ass out of a rag doll through a wicker chair.
from coldandgray :
Love all the recent posts, keep it flowing!
from thespark :
I run a diary community. I'd like for you to join the ring.
from mizmaris :
how are you my transplanted darling?
from dirk21 :
Wow! There's a new girl in town?!
from banefulvenus :
love your banner!
from silverluna :
wow, you do a lot of travelling! Is it for work, or for fun?? ~Sara
from coldandgray :
Hello, I think you are great. Please show your sister how to turn on her notes so I can send her one...unless she hates that sort of thing...
from hibryd :
I guess that explains it, I only went to Amsterdam on a field trip. Charming eh? Most of the European culture is like that. So you're "site seeing" or do you live in eruope?
from hibryd :
Saw your "ad" and you live in Amsterdam? I used to live in Germany and as a school field trip we went there. It smells like weed everywhere you go huh? Tell me, do you get used to the smell?
from slumper :
bar work would be awesome but i live about an hour out of sydney in a pretty rough suburb, and seeing there's about two pubs here, i'd have to work in the city and the train alone home at like, 3am - bad bad news. BUT! i am qualified to work in bars, i did all the courses and that, so i'm sure it's where i'm headed once i get overseas. wheeee! only 5 months to go!!!
from coldandgray :
I love all your posts, "What is this thing you call a car" was especially wonderful.
from livescollide :
HEY, I SAW YOUR MESSAGE ON EDGARFROG'S PAGE. I'M TRYING TO STEAL FANS. CHECK OUT MY DIARY. I LIKE GOOD GIRLS. CONTRARY TO MY DIARY, I'M A STRONG CHRISTIAN. CALL IT MY "SATAN-INSIDE-OF-ME" OUTLET. BUT COME ON, WHOLE MILK!?! SKIM'S THE ONLY WAY TO GO.
from odango-atama :
like your story
from stupidshit :
that was heartfelt.
from jason75 :
you have become seriously popular! remember who added you first damn it! What is with the tinge os sadness today! someone need a drinking binge? And nanys are still in demand here in Oz I think.. maybe I will breed and hire you
from aquietboy :
have you read 'keep the aspidistra flying' by george orwell? its my favourite book of all time....
from stupidshit :
come to boston.
from mizmaris :
feel better soon, sweets. :)
from coldandgray :
I could not sit silently by without letting you know how much I love your diary. It is simply perfect.
from gumphood :
Also look for the person wearing a red white and blue flag. That's usually an american too. Well, sometimes. Sometimes its just a funny looking hooker.
from funda :
An admirable life :)
from stupidshit :
My jealousy is not the point. The point is how do you travel so much? Did you save up or are you rich?
from jason75 :
I lopve the new layout. I do miss your ass but this is a little easier to navigate.. now if only we got round to getting the damn guestbook added!
from mizmaris :
bici taxi!
from duckymonkey :
David Sedaris is awesome! Aaah! But yes. I adore your diary...it makes me smile. Have a super day and all. XD
from scottie1402 :
Wow...what an exciting life you lead! I love this diary...I can't think of anything else exciting to say, because I'm obviously not that exciting myself...I think I should stop now before I hurt myself...
from aquietboy :
and i am equally impressed that you like john prine. fascinating how this world works....
from coldandgray :
Followed the Panty Banner, read your diary & loved it most sincerely.
from mizmaris :
mmm, i like.
from thedonkey :

from bedazzledman :
saw the dairyland advert - and for some reason clicked... and read... and enjoyed :)
from jason75 :
NOw I am throwing a Eurovision party next weekend of sorts and was hoping you wouldnt mind dropping by and stuff.
from slumper :
Eeee! Spacecake! Sounds fucking out of this world man, I cant wait! Youre right about the job application stuff, just found a good looking agency that deals with admin kinda jobs in my area so Im going to give them a call tomorrow, fingers crossed. Im thinking of maybe just doing temp work until the end of the year? That way I wont get bored with the same job and stuff, could be cool. Well see I suppose. Dude I cant stop thinking about the spacecake! Why dont George Clooney and Brad Pitt wanna have spacecake with ME sheila?
from jason75 :
Yay for ash backing me up! now! the teaching kids to run with scissors, if you were to tempt fat like that I would expect interdimnensional wormholes to open up and for the earth itself to turn inside out. stop it.. STOP IT NOW!!!
from slumper :
YOU!!! firstly, need to give me all the low down on london, amsterdam and whatever else. everything!!! secondly, do as jason says and eat vegemite, it's imperitive to your survival. marmite it good too, but not as good as vegemite.
from jason75 :
hey gorgeous! marmite is the poor relation to vegemite but is fntastic on toast. is an aquired taste and something you should defintely give a go but only with a very thin application. Is a very strong flavour!!!!! have mssed your updating and is good to catch up on you again and possinbly leave the longest note in your guestbook. In fact this note is now offocially longer than half of your entries which is sort of sad in itself.
from joeydafool :
By always eating my broccoli and rutabaga.
from mizmaris :
internet cafs are not nearly as full of greatness as home computers. boo. bad children are also the suck. but spain and france. spain and france.
from mizmaris :
ah, it was nothing. i'm over dramatic, it keeps me sane. and yes, potty trained IS all that matters. it matters very much. hope you love england as much as it will love you.
from jason75 :
Is there a reward on offer? a bounty if you will because I can come looking!!!
from mizmaris :
he sounds like magic. :)
from slumper :
who knows? maybe it's in my genes! either way, i'm hot shit. :p
from jason75 :
god you live the life dont you!! stop listing it like that because all that happens is I get crazily jealous! Still.. begrudgingly I guess you deserve it.
from mizmaris :
glad you found something sweetie and lunch sounds great.
from jason75 :
dont let it stress you. I am sure you will get hired first. If I had kids and stuff I would hire you! Is a good profile. Maybe you need to drink more and stuff but you know...
from mizmaris :
i vote we play pretend and you get to be the older sister i always wanted.
from jason75 :
get onto aol!!! I am there now!!!!!
from jason75 :
jasonrobinson24@hotmail.com goddamn it!
from jason75 :
upload all of what!!! and I have added you to my aol! as soon as I find you online we can commence the trade!!!either that or email me!!
from molzo :
I recieved the payment! I'll upload all of them soon. E-mail me your ideas for a layout.
from jason75 :
I have heard that spitting on your hands and rubbing them against your face will keep skin moist for minutes at a time.. could be worth trying... I am just saying..
from jason75 :
just remember that I added you first. Now that you are collecting fans and stuff! Also I do the same thing with the tongue poking out. Most kids however vurst into tears and I get in trouble from their parents. Damn lack of subltely and my bad genes!
from mizmaris :
no starbucks in holland or iceland? poor girl, i feel your pain. my friends make fun of me because i almost live at the starbucks here. they almost banned me when they heard the staff call me by name.
from sad-disease :
I love you for the simple fact that you called me babycakes. Thank you.
from imbroke :
I say, give me $10, and yo can have whatever banners you want! They're still on the site, just an entry or two behind the current. E-mail me with your password, once you've paid me, and I'll upload them.
from jason75 :
I am not here very often but still chekcing in.. I dont know how you stayed so regular whkilst you travelled! I am useless at it! hugs all round though
from mizmaris :
a bit of confusion. "the boy" is the boy i like. "the guy" is a guy who knows me from back home, but wont tell me who he is. hmm.
from mizmaris :
oh the boy, he is a cutie. too bad he happens to be thousands of miles away, on the other side of the world. finally a nice boy and i leave the continent. such is my luck. how is home?
from mizmaris :
speakeasy huh? i have yet to check that out. you have been everywhere, im am a jelous girl!
from leebozeebo :
It's a harmless little ditty about doing it. Getting it on. Makin' some whoopee. Engaging in the horizontal mambo. Fucking. Oh, shit, replace that last one with a clever innuendo that means sex, reverse cowgirl style.
from mizmaris :
gin by the pool. you lucky, lucky girl.
from mizmaris :
have a great trip home. and happy thoughts are being sent right back your way!!
from jason75 :
have a safe trip and all that.. I leave for my much less dangerous trip in four days! Unless terrorists are targeting opur vaqn I dont think there is much to worry about
from dirk21 :
I cant believe you didnt notice me picking my nose! By the way - were in the Tanger Hotel and tend to get bored at night (from tomorrow on it should be better). Were bound to end up in the Moby Dick near the Yacht Harbour, see you there?
from jason75 :
about time you updated for me again.. they seem to come in bursts of 5 at a time... I should have my question marks removed.. congrats on the underwear by the way. Hoping they were smiley face free!
from jason75 :
on the upside! I have just read you entire diary and am now bored with nothing to do again! is there another one and where are you headed from there?
from jason75 :
email me on jasonrobinson24@hotmail.com and I will give you the passwords and stuff
from jason75 :
if you would like I may well have one I can give you from an old diary I never really got round to using! Back from when they were free and stuff
from mizmaris :
have a safe trip over to argentina!
from jason75 :
can I mention the guestbook thing now I have listed you!! as in you need one!!!! otherwise very cool
from jason75 :
I do indeed have an accent of types. Sort of bastardised somewhere inbetween Australian and Kiwi so it has been killed off!!! haha! to the fanny packs which over here are called bum bags and only worn by old american tourists!
from opalreviews :
Hi. Your review is up! You are my first review so I'd love for you to comment on it once your done reading it!
from imbroke :
Yes, I design banners.
from jason75 :
wow! so much going on. Very few ex's are worth 37 cents a minute, that is so sad about the boys dad, poverty is both excrutiatingly sad and amazingly inspiring. Is one hell of an adventure you are living!
from mizmaris :
you should drop me an email sometime. it would be awesome to hear about your trip.
from mizmaris :
how did you end up in uraguay?
from mizmaris :
although i usually dont eat it that much, when i was living in cuba i craved peanut butter all the time. i even had my mom chance a parcel to try and get some. :)
