That was a good Valentine's Day. Your sister and I were so very high.

from princessbug :
I LOVE your letter to Peyton! Especially being a native Bmore girl living in an area where Peyton rules the world. I can't tell you how many Colts fans there are here because of Peyton going to UT. I don't even think they had heard of the Colts before he signed there. UGH! However, I do so love me some Eli!
from jenniam :
happy new year -- I thought Miami was the Bills arch enemy?
from ms-bormann :
Happy New Year. :>
from miedema2002 :
Hi, I found you through an add for 12% Beer. I read one entry of your diary and I was hooked. you are an excellent writer!
from moresarah :
You're consorting with a Steelers fan? My goodness, he MUST be special.
from la-the-sage :
I'm so happy for you, darling. ~LA
from for-you-only :
Hi, I was reading 12% beer, and I kinda got addicted and read all the posts up on the index page. Now I want to know what the theme is with all the posts - like, somehow, they really DO resemble BEER!?!?!?!!! So, now I want to join. How did you join?
from la-the-sage :
You heard me! I've been calling for you and you heard me! YAY! //// I guarantee my dream was grosser than yours. I dreamt I had a huge boil on the underside of my boob and the pus was acidic like alien spit. Word of warning: Do NOT fall asleep to the Sci/Fi channel. Loving you hard, my dear. ~LA
from la-the-sage :
Inspiring as always. Now I need to write a summer vacation entry too. How adorably contagious you are! Btw, you've been in my mind all this time so whenever you want another look-see at the cards you just ask, okay? ~LA
from summer-gale :
I'm sorry to learn that you and Thumper are seperated. You seemed very tuned into each other. These things have a way of working out over time but I'm glad that school started so you can keep your mind off it.
from trancejen :
You must e-mail me or I will kick your ass.
from blulinepaper :
Keep in mind Superman Returns picks up after Superman II. Bryan Singer elected to ignore III and IV. That concludes your Geek Factoid for the day.
from fiestada :
A Widow for One Year is SO good.
from blulinepaper :
What the - ?! Oh dear God, give your folks my best will ya'?
from hibiscus101 :
Absolutly LOVE top chef!
from haloaskew :
I've seen most of the episodes of Top Chef and could never seem to change the channel. Very addictive! I couldn't STAND Stephen and was waiting for the day when someone would smack his pouty "I know wine, thus I know the secrets of the entire universe" face. When he was finally eliminated I was beaming from ear to ear with sheer JOY. Take THAT you snotty jackass!
from wolfpack2099 :
I too was obsessed with Top Chef, but I think you and I were the only ones. No one else seemed to even know it existed. I now get excited whenever a Culinary Institute commerical comes on, as both Leanne and Miguel make cameos. Thanks for a great read. I always look forward to your posts.
from singledadguy :
:) B-Soul... Im proud of you. For making the difference in so many lives, and the knowledge that no matter where you go and what you do, you will continue to do so as your life blossoms. :)

from la-the-sage :
I felt the same way about Mr Rogers. His death knocked me over for weeks afterward. Did you ever see Richard Simmons' hilarious guest spot on Drew Carey's 'Whose Line...' show? It's on YouTube, I think. I'll see if I can scare up the link. Mwah! ~LA
from singledadguy :
Hey.... Im right with you on the "Not where I thought I would be..." thing. When I turnede 28, suddenly I thought to myself .... Wow... Im 28. Shouldnt I be successful by now? A house, a nice car, and planning college for the boys? And.. oh man look at how cool the STARS look! I wonder if I could invent a faster than light means of travel and visit them someday...OH maybe I can still join NASA and go to Mars... Oh man chocolate.. .ummm... I need a snack...". Im 37 now, and I still want my chocolate. :D
from groovn-girl :
I'm 32. You. Totally. Suck.

I'm 32. You. Totally. Suck.
from summer-gale :
I remember that "I'm almost 30" moment. Be grateful you have some time because it's closely followed by the "I'm almost 40" moment.
from la-the-sage :
Snitty? On you? Never. Laughing my butt off, yes. Laughing with recognition and perfect recall of a similar "Holy CRAP!" moment of my own. ~LA
from la-the-sage :
Thanks for the lovely compliments! ~LA
from la-the-sage :
Good luck, honeybunch. Hope you guys get the future you want and are working so hard toward. ~LA
from haloaskew :
You are a wedding trooper! I haven't been to one in years (after a veritable SLEW) and don't want to go to one again (especially my own). But that won't ever happen, so it's COOL. You should check out the softer side of Sears or...er, Sam's Club.
from hibiscus101 :
i love bang bang your dead. such a good good show. i so sorry that someone did that..have fun at your abundance of weddings!
from fiestada :
Yeah, but now it's Oscar time!!
from hibiscus101 :
it def sucks to let go of something you love, like the theatre program. but your health absolutly has to come first. no guilt, just a personal choice. :)
from hibiscus101 :
it sure as fuck feels like it huh?
from blulinepaper :
Jess! Jess! Now that you have X-Box Live in your house, you can play Halo with us online sometime! Then you can scream and giggle and swear into a headset! All in Rich's ear of course...
from princessbug :
Thanks to Misha I have become an avid gun enthusiast. Well, maybe not that strong, but I have 2 of my own (compared to Misha's like 30) and I really enjoy going to the gun range. I actually sleep with a loaded 9mm on my night stand. Makes you feel a little better when you are at home at night a lot by yourself! Miss ya!
from la-the-sage :
Well, thanks! In her later years Betty Friedan talked about how family had been negated in the original feminist message and how maybe sometimes women WANT to smile, serve and tend. Domesticity, like shit, happpens, dear one. And remember, there's lightyears of space between wanting to do something and being forced to for lack of any other option. ~LA
from katehackett :
YEOWCH!
from autumn-gypsy :
Damn...I wish I could get a little somethin-somethin from Tiffany's. Geez. Merry Christmas!!!
from la-the-sage :
More Tiffany's trinkets??? Damn that guy is good. Much love and Merry Christmas! ~LA
from hibiscus101 :
*Happy Holidays*
from fiestada :
Rain Man's not OCD, toots, but I am. And I'm fairly certain both Mom and Steve are. Welcome to the club, chicky. It's not so bad here.
from katslater :
Well done for finally taking care of yourself for a change. I'm proud of you!
from hibiscus101 :
AWW YAY! HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER:)
from fan4 :
Get well soon!
from hibiscus101 :
YAY!!
from la-the-sage :
YAY!!!! So glad your show was a success. Bravo to cast and crew and a huge BRAVA to you, my dear, for being an awesome teacher. ~LA
from s-m-r :
My advice: eat more fiber. It fools you into thinking you've eaten a lot, and fiber-rich foods taste really good, to boot. The most significant suggestion I can make is look for more whole grains (make sure the label says "100% whole wheat," not just "made with whole wheat," for example). Eat dark green, leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, beets, and other greens. If you like beans, which are high in fiber, then go for 'em (I love black beans, myself). If you can take the plunge, try tofu or soy milk. ...Here's to health! (as he toasts to granting some unsolicited advice)
from fiestada :
I could not be more amused at your title of "I'm outbreak free!" I love you, you know.
from pfirsich :
Oh,you sleepy one of a girlfriend!*giggles*
from haloaskew :
I have the BNL guitar strings from their show in Phoenix, roundabouts 1994! I hit on a roadie, and it was worth it. He told me he gives a "bouquet" of guitar strings (mine was in a Shiner bottle vase) to the nicest person he meets at the next show (which was Houston). I was let on stage before they played and touched their instruments! And I met the band before the show, at a restaurant next door. As they walked by, I got their autographs and asked what they thought of people throwing Kraft mac and cheese on stage. Their advice: Aim low, and don't throw the BOX, just the noodles.
from ooh-awkward :
so his name is chris huh? very interesting. i don't know you but it's been driving me nuts. i know that's weird but it has.
from poolagirl :
What a sweet thing to say! And yes....I am shy. Most performers are shy. The yellow shoes really don't fit the image, do they? Anyway....thanks for the kind words. Mind if I make you a fave?
from sevensurge :
Screwin' monkeys, eh? I went to the Boston Zoo two years ago to visit a friend who was working there for the summer. She took us around and gave us the 'special' tour, which included the graphic story of the gay lions which live there. The tale about the zookeepers trying to 'straighten them out' was the best... they put a female lion in with the homos, and the boys proceeded to... rip her throat out. As if that wasn't enough, I am proud to report that I did in fact see the gay lions goin' at it.
from fiestada :
I hear you on the Whale's Vagina front...I had a great time, but was SO glad to come home. I've never felt quite so out of place in my life (and you know damn well that's saying something coming from me!) Have fun, dear, and send my love to Nicki and those handful of fabulous JournalCon chicks who remember me from last year. Next weekend, we shall party!
from bingoguy :
Vader, A childhood filled with daily beatings from peers.
from pirategirl :
Haha! Your boyfriend's a dork!
from katslater :
I forbid you to indulge in self-doubting behaviour. He has free will, and he's with you because he wants to be. And he's not a mind-reader... talk to him. You can do it!
from bingoguy :
and... Jeebus H. Murphy. How DARE you leave me in suspense!
from s-m-r :
My take on it, should you choose to accept it: you'll only know if you ask, and he tells you the truth. Beyond that, make the most of what comes in to your life.
from blulinepaper :
There you go Jess, being human again. Love who you have while you have them and regret them when they're gone. Beyond that, nothing else in love matters.
from la-the-sage :
Nesting! Wheee! Yellow is good. We have lots of yellow here. My kitchen, back entry and my wee porch office are yellow. A pale calm yellow. Wolf's room is SCREAMING yellow with cobalt trim. Always knew you had magnificent taste. ~LA
from pfirsich :
Dammit,*I* should have pciked yellow for my walls. Why did I take red? Maybe I can redo it.
from hibiscus101 :
scrapbooking is mad fun! and so creative. i have a cousin that hosts scrapbooking parties at her house..horray for Geekdom!
from almostnormal :
What an ethical dilemma! (read them) On the one hand, you want to teach well, and to do that (read them) you need to know what's going on with them (read them) - but on the other hand (read them) you would be invading their privacy and that wouldn't be right. Of course, what kind of privacy can you expect if you're signed up on a school community ring of some kind? Also, you probably (read them) won't get too much raw, brutal honesty if they know other classmates are reading them. So if you choose (read them) not to read them, you're probably not missing much. Have a great day!
from fiestada :
It's a library book, lamb, but shall I put you on the hold list for it?
from cosmicrayola :
Ya! I can't see the pics either!
from fiestada :
Tried to go look at your pictures...need an email and password. Boo to that!
from fiestada :
It seems you have not heard the latest: I can't go to the wedding after all. See, I thought I had O's tickets for Saturday, which I was going to blow off. It seems that is actually the day I start the part-time job for my dad. I should have actually checked my calendar, and I'm an ass. Please, please take pictures? I know everything will go off without a hitch, and you will be beautiful.
from vividdreamer :
Don't know how I found your link, but I've spent over an hour poking around in your archives, and I've loved every minute of it. What a great way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon!
from ms-bormann :
Sorry for not replying sooner, I never check my guestbook. Usually there's nothing in there. That sounds like a lot of fun, thanks for the suggestion. Good luck with your grey hair btw. :) -Kass

from blulinepaper :
Dude, my goatee is becoming streaked with shocks of dead-white hair. I blame that piece of shit car that I KNOW LONGER OWN! WHOO-EEE!
from ms-bormann :
Nice letter there, very honest, and straight-forward. Good luck. :P I like reading your entries, you're funny, and you seem to have an interesting life... Keep writing. :)
from imaphatpig :
you're gonna have to fight me for him because i read the book and fell in love with him too!
from science-girl :
Earplugs for you, Breathe Right strips for him. Seriously. Try 'em. They work wonders. :-)
from blulinepaper :
And it leaves teethmarks of hilarity in its wake! Have you actually officially moved in yet? Just freakin' do it for cryin' out loud!
from thinartist :
OMG!Those people sound so completely... desperate. Desperate in their anger. Desperate with self-loathing. Desperate in their sense of impotence. The worst part is that people who feel like that often blame others. I'm sorry they lashed out at you. You can't save everyone but you can be a voice of reason, an example of self-pride, and a watchdog. You can't save people from themselves.
from blulinepaper :
Awwwwww....Actually, I'm more surprised by your flurry of updates lately. Hooray!
from imaphatpig :
congrats on your new state of being!!! *claps hands*
from blulinepaper :
GEEK!! You may now return fire with cries of "HYPOCRITE!!" I'm jealous though, you're seeing it before me. And despite my better judgement, I'm excited too. Stupid George Lucas.
from thinartist :
BRAVO! They needed to hear that. You are not old. You spoke the truth.
from blulinepaper :
To quote Big Will: Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!
from iamtherain :
I just read your diary for the first time. Your speech was magnificent, to tell you the truth. I too am sickened by the youth of today's actions. But, what's the sound of one hand yapping? :) Have a nice day.
from blulinepaper :
I just find it very amusing that your profile still says your single, Little Ms. I Live with my Frickin' Boyfriend!
from princessbug :
It's great to hear from you! It is nice to be able to "peek" into each other's lives! I will be posting thousands of pics after our trip. I will have the site linked to my diary. You can live vicariously through those!!!!! Glad to hear that you are happy and doing well.
from jenne1017 :
too soon? dude -- it took us 3 weeks and she's living with me!
from s-m-r :
Congrats on the well-received show. Makes it all worth it, doesn't it? ...And don't you hate it when people say "standing o" instead of "standing ovation"? "Standing o" is a completely different phenomenon, in my book.
from blulinepaper :
Man, those guys at the gates really freak out if you talk about terrorists and shit. It's like they have some kind of life threatening job and can't laugh about a bomb joke! Sheesh!
from s-m-r :
And, in the event I never told you enough: THANK YOU for hopping into the 24 Experiment last month. You performed admirably...and you were pretty good on stage, as well...! :D
from s-m-r :
I think we need to start a diaryring of Hopelessly Addicted to Karaoke Mother Fuckers. We'll call it HAKEMOF or something, and you and I will be the co-chairs.
from jenne1017 :
and you didn't drunk dial me??? :( SAD LADY! SAD!
from blulinepaper :
DUDE! DUDE! ED FROM BNL IS SOMEHOW GUEST-STARRING IN THE NEW EPISODE OF RED VS. BLUE! I HAVE TO GO WATCH IT RIGHT NOW! I FIGURED YOU WOULD BE AS EXCITED ABOUT THIS AS I AM! TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS FUN! WHEEEEEEEEE!
from s-m-r :
I don't know...having to MAKE someone watch The Big Lebowski is a major warning sign that they're totally square. JUST KIDDING! Have fun with your man, though the weather outside is frightful, Ms. B.
from cosmicrayola :
If being this happy makes you appear boring, then so be it! It is so good to hear you so elated!
from blulinepaper :
I'm sorry, what b-word word did you just use? And yes, you do rule.
from blulinepaper :
GOOGLEYPOOGELYSLJFLSLEIJFISEOEWIUEOI!! You've been, uh, I'm bored. Hi!
from la-the-sage :
I've been following along. Gosh you live out loud. So much life! You, dear woman, are a marvel. ~LA
from blulinepaper :
Damn! I'm so brilliant I don't even know it! Or possibly too geeky for my own good. No, definately brilliant!
from blulinepaper :
Hah! Maybe if you're good! Or maybe you should get hooked up to X-Box live and join the team. Then its like, oficial, and stuff. Huh? Huh? Huh?
from blulinepaper :
Hey! Marion is having some people come and drink and chill at her house Saturday night to celebrate her getting a better job and quitting Eddie's. I am to pass an invitation along to you and your boy. Love, me.
from sevensurge :
Be so kind as to refresh my memory on that knock-knock joke you whipped out at El Salto. Thanks so much.
from blulinepaper :
Welp, here's to hopin'...
from sevensurge :
I'll take a handful of that ass!
from gumphood :
Why did, on the multi choice, you move from a b c d, to combos? Illogical... Ha. Anyway, where is lefty? Just wondering. I like your diary. I am a Pats fan, which means I respect, but don't fear the ravens. Do you like the Baltimore O's as well?
from la-the-sage :
Oooo! Sounds like big fun! Do keep us up to date, pleeeeeeeze. ~LA
from thinartist :
whoa baby! enjoy your christmas!
from s-m-r :
Tra la la boom dee-ay, Ms. B got a kiss in school today...
from fatqueen :
Wooooooooo Hooooo! Merry Christmas to youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!
from thinartist :
ok, i'm confused. going on a date... the ex, right? the sweet kiss followed by the "love" but not "in love" kinda love drama? lefty??? am i following this correctly?
from blulinepaper :
Then it's agreed. Boys are incredibly stupid. And yucky. With cooties.
from blulinepaper :
Oh sweet Jesus, this is worse then a fucking soap opera. Can I please pimp slap some sense into this boy? In love with someone else...Stupid indecisive weenie.
from s-m-r :
Hope your dinner is full of fun. Then you get dessert...And all that it implies.
from thinartist :
my advice: see the ex. you broke up when things were good... he probably regrets being a putz. that being said, i'm not saying f#ck the boy. just explore a friendship then you'll know whether he should be allowed to date you again. plus, sorry to sound manipulative, but it sounds like lefty needs a little competition... he doesn't need to have you pull a "falling back into bed with your ex." (you know how that hurts, eh?) jenny lynn
from blulinepaper :
Sigh. I chose...wisely.
from blulinepaper :
Jessica, no suspense please - What the crap did you say?!
from jenne1017 :
hmmm -- I hope it's "A"!
from cosmicrayola :
Happy Gobble Day!!
from sunnflower :
Hi from Suburban Island. Watching the parade is always fun. It ushers in the holiday season in my mind. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
from thinartist :
ok, does lefty really have no clue that you are into him? have you directly discussed your feelings for him? a very curious, jenny lynn
from blulinepaper :
Anyway what? ANYWAY WHAT?! WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!!! Incomplete...sentence...makes...for...
from fiestada :
Not sure; I think I might be having dinner with Dad on Friday. The Boy can come after work; you know damn well it prolly won't start till 9 or something. Invite him already!
from fiestada :
Dude. Invite him to the Jammy Jam. You know you want to, and you KNOW he'll come.
from thinartist :
i loved "original" sassy too. ahhh. the good ol days.
from alicefalls :
I loved "original" Sassy, if it was still being done I would still buy it even though Im well out of the demographic. I remember I once entered a contest to date Spike Jones, alas I did not win. I remember that game vaguely, I remember some game that involved dares and fake zit stickers, that were red dots. ahh the good old days.
from princessbug :
"In high school one of my best friends was a Jenn. She was Jennifer Lynne B; I'm Jessica Lynn Biensoul. We even looked alike. We sat next to each other. We did this on purpose. We wanted to feel a part of one another, like the twins we could never be." And alas, we never talk anymore:( I was flipping through your archives, trying to figure mine out! Hope you are well Jelby!:) hehe.
from imaphatpig :
I forgot to tell you, I took some pics of her wedding and posted them. Look for them in my Oct. archives (Oct. 19 - Pictures as promised). That's all.
from imaphatpig :
How can he not be into you? HOW??? I just don't get it. By the way, you remember Paust? She just recently got married. Thought you might enjoy knowing that.
from musicchick44 :
Walter and Donnie? So brilliant.
from s-m-r :
Aha...I just remembered: "It's a required taste." Funny story, that one. ...Missed you on Friday night at the party. Hopefully you and I can catch up sometime soon; once I get my transmission replaced, I should be able to drive on surfaces other than back roads. I'll get out to the Bounelis compound eventually. Take it easy, Ms. B! --SMR
from blulinepaper :
Sorry about last night. You called during dinner and then Marion and I went and bought pumpkins and spent the evening carving them (Marshie and Strong Mad respectively). Are you coming to Company 13's thingamahoo Friday?
from blulinepaper :
That's right up there with the infamous "Y2K Bug" cosume of '99, my dear. Hopefully there will be fewer cops with drawn firearms this time though.
from blulinepaper :
Man, I don't even have a Halloween costume yet. I suck. What are you dressing up as? You type incredibly well for someone who's eyes have been burned from their skull, I might add.
from bingoguy :
I miss you too, but love you all the same.
from blulinepaper :
Allow me to react to the results of your personality quiz by paraphrasing one of my favorite scenes from one of the greatest films of all time. "I am shocked, shocked and apalled to learn there is an Exibitionist hre on Diaryland." "Your online journal, sir." "Thank you very much." Drive through.
from cruel-irony :
Just dropping by to start getting caught up with you now that I have more time. I'm glad you have a great group of kids and that you're really enjoying your job. The educational system needs more fantabulous teachers like you.
from jenne1017 :
when are we hanging out?
from fiestada :
Oh, I forgot about trivia. I absolutely cannot leave the house tonight...I screwed around all day yesterday instead of PACKING.
from fiestada :
Tonight? "A few cups of coffee, some cigarettes, and good conversation. You, me and five bucks, thats all we need." Well, you can have coffee, I'll stick to Pepsi, thanks.
from jenne1017 :
heh. I would say yes, you were drunk.
from blulinepaper :
You go get yourself some of that crazy Nine Inch Nails lovin' you silly drunk bastard! Not that I have any room to talk about silly after the crazy message leaving splurge I went on yesterday...

You are never too old for crushes! Enjoy it.

Check the box, Jess! --SMR
from bingoguy :
Yaa for Crushes!!
from meeshapeesha :
Looks like your precious Ravens got their asses whooped by my Browns. And you gotta play the Steelers this week. Good luck with that one. ;)
from bingoguy :
At Least You've updated...you're doing better than I.
from blulinepaper :
So how 'bout them Ravens, huh? That freaking sucked. Fucking Browns. Ann is from Ohio. Fucking Browns.
from fiestada :
The grammar AND the spelling! Absolutely painful for me to read without a red pen.
from blulinepaper :
Dude, I'm pretty positive Mike owes you twenty bucks for SOMETHING. He probably owes Jesus twenty bucks at this point in his life.
from fiestada :
"And this thing about the bad boys? FUCK THEM. And the thing about the good boy? FUCK HIM (literally)." Oh, honey, I did. I soooo did.
from ilmomof3 :
After reading numerous links to you from the posts about JournalCon that I sadly missed (but will NOT miss next year!), I decided to see what all the hoopla was about. I am so NOT disappointed! Hope you don't mind if I add you to my favorites...
from influence :
It's all good. I realized on saturday that I forgot to email my number.
from jenne1017 :
stop with the gorgeous shit huh?
from cosmicrayola :
fix my link so they can see the thong!! Only one "c" in the middle.
from sunnflower :
Hi from Suburban Island. It was fun getting to meet you at JournalCon. Your reading was amazing!
from sevensurge :
Not one, not two, but THREE new gay boyfriends!? I feel as though you're hogging them all. I missed you too, and am sure I would have had a much better time with you than I did without. Thanks for the 'required taste' bit, I love it!
from metanoia :
I was born and raised LA, lived there for 40 years. It was home to me. I now live in NW Georgia and have been here for 12 yrs. It is home, now. It's different, but good. I had that, what I call Cali-centric attitude, like 'what is on the other side of the Colorado River, anyway?' type thing. Now, though, when I go back, it is not the same. I miss the time more than the place, but it still feels like home, in a surreal, hard-to-put-your-finger-on way... People there, for the most part, only annoy me, now. Ha! I'm an East Coaster, now!
from lolotte :
Only went to California once, loved San Francisco, hated Los Angeles. What's supposed to be good about that city, please someone remind me? And no smikong in bars is unnatural. On the other hand, bacon AND sausage in the one sandwich?!
from imaphatpig :
Good night! FINALLY! Someone else who agrees with me that California is NOT the greatest place in the world. Thank you!
from blulinepaper :
These are not the droids I'm looking for.
from blulinepaper :
I have decided you should update your cast list. It's like, pre-me having a journal. Lame! Lame I say!
from blulinepaper :
I have one word for you: Scrapbooking.
from s-m-r :
Damn, you and me are both up shit's creek in relationship-ville, aren't we? Here's to solidarity. --SMR
from blulinepaper :
Oh damn. I missed girl's night. My life is empty. No seriously, glad you crazy kids had fun. And anyone who's good at Population: Tire or Awesome Cross has my utmost respect. Them game's is hard, yo!
from fiestada :
Why do I make that face when I laugh? *sigh* Excellent party, dear.
from sevensurge :
Torgo? I have no clue what you're talking about. Google tells me he's a monster from Manos: The Hands of Fate, but I'm just as clueless on that one. Meh?
from upcountry :
haha i said nirthday!! me smart!
from upcountry :
happy belated nirthday! if you lived here I would take you to the honky tonk pub here and we'd pick up hot cowboys. maybe for once there would actually be hot cowboys around.
from a20something :
Happy Birthday! I love your diary :D
from sevensurge :
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Chica, happy birthday to YOUUUUUUU! ...... yyyaaaaaaaayy!
from marn :
Happy birthday, you zygote you. I know you feel old, but you're not. What is happening is that you are growing up, accepting responsibility for who you are. How to put this? Well, it seems to me that when you're really, really young you, uh, "try out" who you're going to be. You're kind of amorphous. I know I was. But now Ms. Biensoul, now you're beginning to jell, to shift from being a girl into being a woman. You're not old. You're starting to emerge from your chrysallis, you're in transition. I can hardly wait to see how beautiful your wings will be.
from sanetwin :
Happy Birthday!
from erica8378 :
Happy Birthday. I turned 26 today 8/3. It's really not so bad.
from carriem :
Hope you have a good birthday :) I am going to be 26 around Christmas and I am still not sure i want to deal with it yet LOL :)
from katslater :
Oh sweetie. GODDAMN I am sorry... call me if you need to, okay?
from blulinepaper :
You were gonna' send me your comedic tour de force that was your Dave Lib dammit! When did Yaya (I didn't spell it right, did I?) get all hospitalized? Keep me posted and send my love to the Biensoul clan.
from carriem :
I hope things get better for her soon!! Lots of love and good thoughts :)
from haus-frau :
I'm glad you had a rocking-good time in England Jess!
from leebozeebo :
Doc Ock's tentacles may SEEM scary, but the ladies never seem to complain once they see all of his soft feathery or possibly vibrating attachments.
from clarity25 :
Hey, I just discovered your diary and I really enjoyed reading it. I felt like I could relate to you, Your trip to England sounded great. I just thought I would say "Hi" and I'll be back to read some more! -Clarity
from hibiscus101 :
sounds liek you had a great time! good stuff:) and those flowers are beautiful:)
from sevensurge :
Sounds like you're having a great time! Glad to hear it. I've been giving the birds outside my house a firm talking-to about crapping on your car while you're gone, no worries.
from blulinepaper :
Hooray England! Give my love to Jenny and Kat. We shall hang when you return. Have fun luv!
from polishstreak :
Hey lady. I'm here in MD. When you get home from England, drop me an email, and I'll send out the digits, so we can pick a night to hang out. :) SB
from pirategirl :
Have fun!!!
from influence :
An internet rockstar party? I suppose I'll have to show up to make the whole thing legit.
from s-m-r :
Good to see another update, Ms. B. You and I need to have another meal together sometime soon. --SMR
from marn :
Keep the motion in your life after England. It doesn't have to be running, it can be power walking, whatever, but KEEP moving. It goes beyond sculpting the bod into the other arenas. Using your body really does help the spirit. I'm the granddaughter, daughter and sister of suicides. Honey, I *know* about depression. Cardio type exercise really does help smack down the demons.
from blulinepaper :
Dude, we have to find a way to simultaneously even out our karma. I can't take much more of this shit. Thanks for the love though. How was Potter? Good, awesome or suck? You decide.
from pariahpoet :
Wow, you must update all the time! You left me a note about a year ago I believe, on my operaghost- guestbook. Ever since I've been seeing your diary on the recently updated list. Just thought I'd say hi and I hope all is well with you.
from erica8378 :
I love your family movie quotes. My family sings, "Dad is great - give us chocolate cake." on all cake occasions as well. Also, "My lib is od the floorb" fromt he same source, anytime we go to the dentist.
from jfsuperstar :
found yer diary via s-m-r. the cicadas are kicking the bucket here as well. please stop by for a read anytime!
from imaphatpig :
Balki Bartokomous and Cousin Larry! Sitting in a waiting room for something. Go me! -andrea p.s. funny that you mention that. I was just thinking about the "dance of joy" yesterday.
from marn :
Jessi, I call it the "Climb Every Mountain" syndrome. Back in the day, for a certain type of short guy, my 5'9"+ height made me pure catnip. Looks as if you've met one of the breed. Like you, I prefer taller men. Being a tall woman already leaves me feeling like Godzilla from time to time.
from s-m-r :
Hey, hey, hey...Whenever someone says I've been procrastinating, I never admit it's not because other things are "just SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT" than doing them. Instead, I say that I'm "just waiting for the right time to do them." You're just waiting for the right time to get organized. Think of it that way. --SMR
from marn :
Kudos, Ms. J, kudos. It is insanely hard to break old habits, especially when food has been a source of comfort. We all have days when the siren call of cupcakes simply can't be denied. The trick is to not give up and go back to old habits after a slip. This is so worth it. Not only are you are going to be drop dead gorgeous for that wedding, you'll notice a huge increase in your energy and stamina. Hope those groomsmen are in training ;-)
from katslater :
Sticking around, eh? Well, it's just one more thing to celebrate in 5 WEEKS! Can't wait to see you.
from blulinepaper :
I'm proud of you sweetheart. I think you're doing the right thing.
from imaphatpig :
Oh and a funny thing about Behm. I will forever remember him for this: He used to always say "Rank order" and I said to him the one day, "Carl (well I didn't call him by his first name but I get a kick out of thinking that I did, anyway), I don't really like that 'rank order' because it makes it almost sound like order of how much something sucks." And he actually thought about it for a minute and said, "You're right. That's a good point." It's so stupid. Sorry. I get a kick out of it. Hopefully he remembers ME for forever because I ruined that for him. Cool! By the way, you make me nervous since you are an English teacher and I don't want to make any mistakes but surely I have but I blame it on my nerves and all. Thanks. 10-4.
from imaphatpig :
Eww EWWWWW! Pantelides... Panty-leads! Gross. Man, I really just don't like her. What was the news? Was it juicy dish about how skank she is? Or did she finally find someone to marry? Eeeeeeeew!
from imaphatpig :
It's you my friend. You are the celebrity with your 12% beer ranking. I am seriously jealous. I had a class with you once. Writing Fiction? With Prof Carl ??? (and Anna-Marie S. was in it, too). I don't remember what his last name was. But anyway, Yeah, maybe you remember me asking you about a certain Pantelides. She was my roommate at the time and you confirmed all of my suspicions of her. I was the asian chick in the class. And also - do you know a Lisa from the towers? Tall, blonde, loved soccer and played the guitar? She is one of my buds and she is getting married in October!!! She said she knew you. And a stage manager named Lauren W.? She is in Philly now doing her stage managing thing. Anyway... that's all. I am just tickled to discover a diary that I so enjoy that happens to belong to someone I know! - Andrea

Does Victory Twin ever get into the Midwest area?
from fiestada :
How many years has it been since 9th grade? Doesn't matter; still smitten.
from blulinepaper :
Oh Jessica, what have you done now? Where, oh, where has your little car gone.
from s-m-r :
Friends...? That's still on? I thought it's been just reruns since they kicked the monkey off the show. I mean, what's up with that? I mean, sure, he doesn't have the muscles of Joey, but I liked him. I...really _liked_ the little guy. --SMR
from katslater :
O-ma-gaw! 6 and a half weeks. WOO HOO!
from sevensurge :
I remember when, three years ago, I offered to take you cross country in my brand spankin' new convertible, and, well, it uh, didn't...happen. Shame on me. This summer is no good for me either, but next summer I'll be fresh out of college, with absolutely nothing waiting for me, and THEN we'll do it. Eh?
from s-m-r :
Hey lady: I'm sorry your involvement with the last 24 was lacking. I know it's not quite the same as Exremities...Just make sure you come out and audition for our regular shows as well. Sorry you weren't pleased with the last one. --SMR
from katslater :
FOR REAL, I am beginning to mark the days off with a pink highliter. I have so many fun ideas!!! I have to warn you, a few of them are illegal, but Fiestada can fill you in on that... anyway, she also mentioned you'd like to go to Scotland for a bit, and my advice is this: FLY, do not bother with the train. It'll be about the same price anyway (which is actually not bad) and the flight will save you HOURS of travel time. Let me know if you'd like me to do a bit of research, OK?
from katslater :
From all accounts, your musical was a smashing success-- I wish I could have been there to see it, as Godspell is possibly one of the only musicals that doesn't cause my eyelid to spontaneously twitch! And now there's just mere WEEKS (like, 9 of them?) until you come to visit!! HURRAH!!
from katslater :
Man, how on EARTH do you remember this stuff?? Very nice hatchoo, by the way. It brought a tear to mine eye. BREAK LEGS tonight!! (Do you still uphold the tradition of wearing your "opening night dress?")
from blulinepaper :
Awesome Cross! 98!
from mittag :
Hilarious diary. I happened by and have been in tears with mostly laughter. Cheers all around.
from pirategirl :
Thanks! So many Marylanders to visit! This is gonna be the coolest Kickass Birthday Road Trip ever.
from s-m-r :
Wow...I really am a ninja! ...Oh, wait. My picture is just posted SIDEWAYS. Thanks for shattering my dreams, Ms. Biensoul. --SMR
from hibiscus101 :
my god hunni. im so sorry, theres no excuse for his behavior and people have been expelled for much less. (((hug))) it'll get better. you deserve more respect than that. feel better..
from stancovet :
Let's pretend it's one week from now and I'm buying you a well-earned drink, eh?
from princessbug :
Jess, I am soooo sorry. Who would have thought that working at out Alma Mater would be so heinous? I hope you are doing well. I will be thinking about you.
from fiestada :
Oh, sweetie, I heart you. I cannot even believe that any adult would imply this was somehow your fault, and I'm utterly speechless that anyone at all would dare to suggest that you're a racist. It's a little scary and sad how acceptable violence is becoming. You're a great teacher and a wonderful person, and you've always done the right thing. This is no exception.
from marn :
Jess, you *should* be supported through this. It saddens me that those kids have been so hardened to violence that the sight of a male student hitting anyone is "funny". You expect to see stuff like that in a kindergarten but when they're practically adult? Yeesh.
from pirategirl :
Holy shit. I've still got a couch I'll put your name on it. That and a bottle of tequila.
from blulinepaper :
Chin up sweetheart, I love you. And seriously, the second I know who this kid is I'm going to knock the shit out of him with a baseball bat. And you think I'm kidding. You'll make it. You are strong.
from foxgallagher :
How can they blame YOU? Is it your fault the kid was out of control? Is it your fault his friends are black? Is it your fault he should have been kicked out aleady? That kid sounds like he needs to be taken out back and smacked around. So does your administration, apparently. Good luck through this bunch of crap.
from s-m-r :
Be strong. ...That's all there is to say. --SMR
from fargahar :
Sounds like it might be Boston Public there....my uncle was a teacher and a similar thing happened in his classroom and NOONE came for like 15 minutes and he ended up having to defend himself, he hit a student. He got fired for that.
from erica8378 :
Holy shit! That is unbelievable! I hope you are okay and get lots of time to rest and recupe. Makes you wonder just what the emergency button is for doesn't it? Geez! I'll be thinking about you.
from sanetwin :
omgd that's so awful. I can't believe a kid hit you. I was interested in being a teacher but the thought of something like that happening is scary.
from kennethcole :
Holy shit you have got to be kidding me. An English Teacher? My Senior English teacher was about a million years old. She went on sick leave for two monthes after we read the jungle and she told us it was nothing but socialst propaganda. Needless to say i didnt let such comments go un challenged. The point is you rock the f-ing house. keep it up.
from s-m-r :
I got shafted as well...You're not alone, darlin'. Maybe they just haven't had enough cool people check out the site; we're part of the 'first wave.' --SMR
from candora :
This same thing happened to me and I spent what felt like a few hours filling out the seemingly never ending questions. No matches for me. You can expect many "matches" to suddenly appear in your mailbox now, complete with a link to where you can pay to retrieve more info and actually contact these afterthought "matches"... sigh, and we have so much hope :)
from rockyraven :
I go to high school in MD. Do I know you?
from blulinepaper :
Scott theorizes that the reason no one came up as compatible with you on the evil computer is because he has not filled out profile yet. Silly, silly Scoot.
from katslater :
Oh yes, the pub/fags/pints/football scenario can be easily arranged. And how's this for another one: Packing up a basket with good food and bottles of wine, folding up some blankets and chairs, and taking a five minute stroll down to the beach for a sunset BBQ. Oh yes-- all that AND more! Now if only time really could fly...
from katslater :
You seriously need to go check out "Pablo." For real. I LOVE him. I want to be his best friend. Seriously, it's sad and pathetic. But it could happen. GO READ HIM NOW.
from foxgallagher :
Congrats and looking sexy, ma'am.
from cruel-irony :
JournalCon in DC? Living it up at your place? Oh, count me in Girl, count me IN! Really, I want a reserved spot and everything. I heart you. P.S. Guestbook was being a bitch again. Man, that thing needs to be slapped around - it's so fickle.
from katslater :
OH MY GOD. OH. MY. GOD. You are SO coming to England, for real!! I am cackling like a mad man at the thought of us in the land of tea and crumpets... so many delights await you, 'Soul. And P.S.-- I got your RSVP ages ago.
from beachlover1 :
Seriously, what is with our family and weird diseases and infections. No, we can't have the common cold, we get hospitalization. Kidney stones, cellulitis, foliculitis... Geez does it ever end!!! Feel Better. love you
from beachlover1 :
Yeah thanks Jess! I want your feedback on my actual work, not my grammar! Teach. First of all!!! HOE LOVE YOU
from beachlover1 :
hey biensoul. its me your sister. yes i started to write again. i want your feedback. i need this in my life right now. love you.
from trasker :
You absolutely slay me. I've been forwarding your entries around, spreading the love. I heart you. Out.
from foxgallagher :
Good to know. Thanks for letting me know that :)
from foxgallagher :
I know, it's meant to be humorous, but I don't think that's very funny. Fat people really don't want to be fat. Many try not to be. It wears on the soul because people stare at you and say nasty things to you. Either that or they completely ignore you. It hurts.
from katslater :
Congrats on a good show-- from all accounts, you were great. (I too heart College Letters, for life.) I have been giving consideration to our activities when you come to visit... as it happens, our new flat is walking distance from numerous pubs. So it looks like we WILL be able to get arrested for public drunken disorderliness! (That'll be another one to cross off the "to do" list.)
from foxgallagher :
That would be incredibly gross to have seen. I'm with you - who cares about a whale penis? They have to reproduce too! Jeez o' petes!
from indigo-love :
about the whale's dick: funny that you mention that here. yesterday, the whale and his super huge penis was a big topic of discussion on an internet bulletin board that i post to. yup have a point... that dick *is* as tall as i am. and yes, i am interested in knowing how taiwanese men experienced the penis.
from dizzydude :
Yeah, good old Nyquil. So many hours of euphoric, apathetic relief has been brought to so many people by this wonderful creation.
from katslater :
Ahem, ahem. You forgot something on your list of goals. Allow me: MAKE SURE PASSPORT IS CURRENT, AND BEGIN RESEARCHING AIRFARES TO ENGLAND.
from stancovet :
I'm a dork, I know, but I felt that I just had to let you know: last night, in a Czech bar called Double Trouble (gotta love the English names), I took my first shot of Jager. I liked it. And I know you're a fan, so I thought of you. That's all I have to say.
from darkoverlord :
Hello fellow Maryland person! Check out our awesome Maryland adventures!
from thecritic :
I heart you. That's gotta count for something!
from marn :
Deep breaths. Deep breaths. You've made your decision and that's half the battle. You have lots of time to decide what's next. You're smart, funny, caring, creative and alarmingly cute. Whatever you decide to do next, you'll be good at it.
from blulinepaper :
But we love you anyway!

cool survey, I have'nt blushed in a while, takes me back to bits of my brain that alcohol long since eroded. Cheers
from s-m-r :
For a minute there, I thought you were getting calls from a Richie I know. Then he starts rambling about the Talking Heads, and I realized he's definitely not cultured enough to know who they are. ...It's not Richie F, is it? Just want to make sure. ...And hey: I'll see you kicking ass and taking names, Thursday night! --SMR
from leebozeebo :
Hey, Jess. I sent you an email a long time ago and I was wondering if you ever got it. If you did, I'm not sending out a plea for you to reply to it, or anything - it's just been so long that I wasn't sure if it even got through or not. Especially since my yahoo address returns mails to me with fair regularity.
from stancovet :
Wha wha what?? Could it be? You and I applying to grad schools at the same time? Oh god. That makes me want to be sick, thinking of it all. Must... go... to... bed...
from staple-stuck :
giving you a and fiestada a great big hug-I think we ALL need one right about now.
from golfwidow :
I went and put a hug into fiestada's guestbook and then the damned guestbook site wouldn't let me put a hug into yours. Bugger. (hug)
from hibiscus101 :
well there you go hun. just liek Pac says."Keep ya Head Up"
from nimiiwin :
Thanks for stopping in. I think Ms. Pacquin will grow into her looks. I do.
from s-m-r :
Aw, my little theatre girl's all growed up! Congrats on the casting, Ms. B: you rock. --SMR
from princessbug :
WOW! I can't believe it has been 10 years! How time flies when you are having fun! Miss ya, bunches!!
from leebozeebo :
Listen, Jess, you don't need all that. Let me tell you the job you should fill out an application for: Millionaire Playgirl Extraordinaire. Eh? Eh? Pretty nice, huh? Another good job is Millionaire Xtreme Chili Taste-Tester, but the first one is less messy at the end of the day.
from crapstein :
Did you know I think yr a genius?
from s-m-r :
You need to let me take you out for an omelette. Call me or write me or something. --SMR
from marn :
YAYYYYYY, indeed! Donating blood is one of those small but important things that are all too easy to blow off. For me, if I don't watch the needle going in All Is Well. Like you, I get a little woozy otherwise. Look away and focus on the free pop, cookies AND muffins. Mmmmmm sugar! Works for me, but then I have the attention span of a gnat.
from everoboto :
About #11 on your list, I think MTV actually did a Fat Teenagers Camp reality show. But get this, even though the dudes were fat, they STILL acted like 'you're so on my shit' to the girls, which I thought was hysterical because you know outside the camp, not one chick would go near them.
from epiphany :
Hey, thanks for the invite. I actually just stuck around here, hanging out with similarly stranded friends. I'm pretty unsure about any highway driving, to be honest. Hope it was a good day for you... take care.
from wvlady :
That show (24) SO rocks! If you think you're hooked now, wait till you get caught up!

Holy Crap! How'd he die? Tell me it wasn't an O.D. Dear Lord... stuttering Bill Denbrough has left the building, kids.

"Because there's nothing hotter than a drunk and easy bridesmaid, and dammit, I want to be HER." Right on sister! I have to be a bridesmaid and dammit I am married! Does that make you a bridesmatron??
from fiestada :
Oh, lamb, if the kids care about it half as much as you do, I'm sure your play is gonna rock. We'll be there Friday with bells on, and when it's over, we'll whisk you away to unwind with Arbor Mist/Rummikub/Phase 10/gossip. *kiss*
from everoboto :
Hi there, thanks for the welcome. That was real sweet of you. I hope I don't give the place a "there goes the neighborhood" kinda vibe. \m/

I'll give you a cut if you share your picks wiht me next week, baby. I'm sucking the big one this season and I'm tired of giving away all my money to the damn engineers. We only put in $2 a week, luckily.

Hey Jessi--I'm off work the week of the 17th to the 21st. Pick a day, and I can be there. What's going on at Denny's these days? Let's find out. --SMR

Awesome pictures! Looks like a lot of fun! :)
from katslater :
Welcome back, pardner. Glad to hear you had a rootin' tootin' good time in Austin! Now do me a favor and get your ass in gear. I need my daily morning read!
from katslater :
Hey! Try to get Mr. VonH to come and see your show on the 14th... I would dearly love to chew the fat with him again. And any chance of a little behind the scenes tour? Ramses is HIGHLY amused and excited to see our alma mater in all of it's glory. He's hoping that lots of our old teachers show up on that night-- some would be better than others! You know what I'm talkin' 'bout.
from marn :
No, Jess, thank *you* for being kind enough to donate. I got a lot of remarks on the shirt. Several of my daughter's friends came in to visit her one of the nights I was adding names and they were really amazed at how personal it made things.
from katslater :
Hey, how much did that puppy set you back? My Mom wants one, and the sis and I are considering getting it for her during my upcoming visit.
from s-m-r :
Oh--you bought a television. I thought you were going to describe your latest chiropractor...ahem..."appointment." --SMR

from cdghost :
i am interested
from katslater :
Re: Bob the single guy... Biensoul, Biensoul, BIENSOUL. I hesitate to use the word "pathetic" to describe your passion for Bob, but oops, I just did! I saw the man over which you drool on an early morning chat show last week. They do a segment on the American reality TV shows, and they featured this one, whatever it's called-- honey, move on. He sho' ain't worth it!! Not a looker, no sir. I dare say you can do a hell of a lot better. Sorry to hear you're so ill-- I feel your pain. Or, your mucous. Here's something to cheer you up: (cue: flash back squiggly lines) "Ribbed for her pleasure..... Eeeeeew."
from katslater :
Cheers, matey. And ditto for looking forward to the visit... I'd say it's long over-due. Have a great weekend, drop me a line if time permits.
from marn :
Jess, thank you for the pointer to the names! The one I got from the e-mail but I couldn't find the other one because I am too freaking old to remember to look in my notes. DOH! And hey, never apologize about the amount you donated. It was a sweet, generous gesture and much appreciated. I'm overwhelmed by the kindness of everyone at Diaryland. This really is an extraordinary little virtual neighbourhood.
from thecritic :
Glad your safe! I had visions of you sitting in your living room with Scuba gear on. Hope my friends are all okay for that matter... Egads! And this was only a category 1 I shudder to think what would have happened if it were any worse.
from katslater :
I hope you're safe in bed, tucked-up and watching a movie or something. And I hope you had the sense to stock up on Ben & Jerry's before it was cleaned out of the freezer cases in the mad rush to prepare for Isabel! Also, I will pray that you do not lose power, as it would be a terrible waste of Chubby Hubby. xoxo
from leebozeebo :
I'm not saying we should just throw this word around. I am fully aware of the significance it holds. A lot of people aren't, though, and they avoid it like the damn plague. I'm trying to say that we shouldn't just forget it and pretend like it was NEVER a part of American vernacular. Also, my dad's name is Floyd, so the fact that the hurricane named after him didn't do anything very extreme holds a special sort of hilaritude for me.
from musicchick44 :
Wait, last entry cuz of the hurricane, or cuz you're taking a little leave of absence from DLand??
from katslater :
Hmmm. Are we talking full-penetration stab, or a sort of glanced-off-the-bone stab, or just a wicked scratch? I don't mean to joke; I just can't get my head around it. Does anyone know why it happened?
from thatmarygirl :
oh man. you're good.
from katslater :
I shudder to ask, but I will. What the hell happened to all the boys that were under suspicion?
from marn :
Ms. B., thank you kindly for your generosity! Running is stupidly boring. Having a worthwhile goal to aim for pushes me to keep it up. When folks tell me the stories of their own brush with breast cancer, or leave memorials/tributes to friends struggling with the disease, then it gives that extra bit of inspiration, keeps me from hitting the snooze button instead of the road. Thank you. Much 'preciated.
from s-m-r :
I can tell already that this will be a golden year for you in teaching. You are at your most wistful and prescient when talking about your kids...Make the most of it, Ms. B.! You are fantastic. --SMR
from thecritic :
Yes I was talking about Towson and noooo didn't even make it to the Towers. The Honors dorm was worrisome enough for me. I don't even think I'll write about it now 'cause I can't organize all of my thoughts haha I tried for like an hour and was overwhelmed. And woohoo for being Tenured!
from thecritic :
Your alma mater scares me! Scares me! Oh man I'm writing about it tomorrow 'cause it made me want to cry visiting it hehe Mental scarring everywhere!
from minstrelite :
Agreed. I suppose if DiaryLand were an institution such as the U.S. government, in which separation of church and state is an issue, perhaps that fellow's complaint would have some merit. But, as I see it, the beauty of DiaryLand is that it gives us all an oppportunity to exercise our First Amendment rights. Thank you for your comment.

your hair is so frikken hot! im jealous:) damn frikken salon ppl. my friendwent for a 10 dollar hair cut and ended up paying over 200 dollars also after the salon assistant was done talking her into every product on the shelf. so feel better:)
from katehackett :
Ugh, they always getcha with those products...
from nadnuk :
I know all obout hair salon stealth...I was smacked with a good 100-plus euro bill when I went to get my pink highlights and a cut in France...needless to say, the cut is still going strong five months later...despite the roots. So I guess it's paid for itself over time...
from katehackett :
yeahh...My mother knows exactly what my boyfriend and I have done (it's not sex, but it's up there). I figure, she'll find out anyway. I'm horrible at keeping secrets and if I DO start having sex, I want her to know I'm on the pill; if there's an emergency and the doctors don't know what meds I'm taking, they ask her, and she says nothing, then there's a horrible reaction with the pill and whatever they give me and I DIE! ...... well, it just doesn't seem worth it. I need to stop overreacting. :O) Anyway. I had the initial convo a year ago-ish and she was more than willing to discuss it and really seemed supportive of my decisions, despite her wishing I wouldn't do so much as smile at a boy 'til I was good-n-married.
from thecritic :
I hate guestbooks! Arrrggh! I signed too fast. I must be like The Flash or something. Anyways if my gb entry doesn't show up it went something like this. Thanks for the congratulations. I'm a little confused about your entry. Was that whole beating up the bad guy thing a metaphor? Does the bad guy represent a bank? Are you robbing a bank?! My head is swimming. Don't rob a bank, though I'm sure you'd make a lovely prison bride, it's not worth it. There... done repeating myself.
from hibiscus101 :
that was a very funny and sad entry at the same time. your poor feet. atleast yours let you wear sandals, mine hate sandals. in fact they've rejected every pair i own. oh well.
from slobber :
Ok, I tried to sign your guestbook but it didn't work. Hi! You write very well - well enough that I'm adding you to my diaryland favorites! (Don't you feel special??) Oh, and I live in Maryland too. I am always available to commiserate about neverending rainfall and temperature changes more radical than those on the planet Mercury.
from marn :
Oh, you say that now but after you get a few beer in you, you'd be the girl walking around with a boa on her arm. Don't try to deny it, missy! I have your number :) Enjoy the break.
from discothekid :
Wow your weekend ruled! I should be coming in to Maryland again in Mid September. I would love to go get a drink or coffee or whatever. I think we would have a blast!
from stancovet :
ATTENTION: There will be a mass viewing of Troop Beverly Hills tonight in Ellicott City. All invited. Inquire within for details. Oh, and the note below regarding John Basedow made me laugh out loud. Let us not forget the informative John Basedow packet we compiled for a Christmas gift, no?
from artsykelly :
Girl, I've MET John Basedow. My ex-boyfriends mom used to be his video distributer, he and I would help out there, dubbing, packaging, and shipping out his videos. *snicker* I helped to infiltrate the world with John Basedow. BTW - when are we getting together?? 410-916-9924 I'm ballsey, there is my digits. Miss you Jessi!
from s-m-r :
Enjoy your vacations. When you get back, we'll go out for a bite to eat again. But this time, it's in Baltimore. . . . . --SMR
from marn :
Jess, that *had* to be one helluva party. I broke my nose in my 30's in an ugly, volleyball related accident and when I read about yours I just winced because I remember all too well the pain. I hope all your boo boos heal quickly.
from barenaked500 :
the 4th is my favorite too. :)
from discothekid :
If you have any suggestions about Maryland I would love to hear them. I am basically going to visit my uncle and my awesome cousin. Drop me an email if you can and thanks!
from thecritic :
Your stupid guestbook hates me. It's an anti-semite! Anywhooo I said something along the lines of this "Dammit woman, 2 books already? I'm not even halfway through the one I'm working on. This means war! ...Naah you'll beat me, I'm a slow reader. Stoopid huked on fonicks. I should sue them for false advertising." Bah!
from stancovet :
By 'Jenny,' are you referring to my sister? I'm gonna go ahead and assume not, since we both know damn well she'd see your comment. Not that she'd probably mind, as she rightfully enjoys occasional reminders of Steve's attributes. But yeah, just lookin' for a little clarification there. Thanks so much. (and stop mis-quoting TBH!! You KNOW it's actually "Annette, wait up, huh?") *kisses*
from stancovet :
Check out my entry, baby. I tried to make you proud!
from gwenllian :
Administrators sure can have a way of making life hell! I found you through Dana-Elayne. I am also a teacher.
from stancovet :
One more thing...I actually think the resignation from extra-curricular things idea is a good one. That way, your voice is heard loud and clear, they have to respond to your demands, and it doesn't have a direct impact on the kids' education. I never even thought of that, but given the circumstances, I think this is a good thing. :-*
from stancovet :
Harumph! This whole tax cut business is cordially invited to suckle on my right testicle. In addition, I'd like to say that I hear ya on the whole 'finding Mario a raccoon tail' thing. I can hold my own on the new video games, but I'm all about old school Nintendo. It just can't be beat. Adventure Island, anyone?
from marn :
It kills me that politicians can find billions for tax cuts, but can't seem to find what is needed for education. I'm appalled that you've been put in this position, that it has come to this.
from s-m-r :
I'm really sorry shit's hitting the fan at school. I'm just really sorry. That's an impossible choice to be pleased with either way...On one side, you'd be cowing for someone who's clearly taking advantage of you; on the other, you're standing tall but inside a pit. I'm really sorry.... .... ....--SMR
from sequinglove :
"Honey mustard tastes good on everything." (<--that's in yer profile...) my sister says that all the time. yer a 24 yr old teacher? whoa. in maryland? where do you teach? (good God, don't say Laurel High.) i'ma HS student. '06 all the way. nice diary, by the way.
from stancovet :
*ahem* I DO believe the quote is "Must've been a real hot listing!" Shame on you. Eternal, damning shame.
from popet2 :
Hey jessi. Just for the record, I don't think you're a boy. Then again, I don't think I'm a boy sometimes Tim
from redhott27 :
Thank you, thank you, for having such entertaining archives. A boring job requires onscreen reading material that *looks* like it could be work-related, as does yours. Yay for me! --christen
from ann-frank :
American Pie 72 times? INSANE! (I kid of course because I am sure I have done the same, only with less complicating songs anyone else could have picked up in like, 3 listenings!)
from s-m-r :
Hey Ms. B. I'm writing you from New Hampshire as I type. Hope you can make it over on Saturday. Keep hope alive 'til the end of the school year. Take it easy!<br><br>--SMR
from barenaked500 :
haha, where did ya find that steven page picture?
from fiestada :
I imagine Steve & I will be doing something on my birthday, but he doesn't get off work until 6. So if you'd like to get together earlier in the day, that would rock my socks. Or a different day, whatever you prefer. We're still planning on having a BBQ of some type, but I don't think the joint-birthday thing is gonna work out. It's just getting too damn close, and we're not prepared. Yay, 12 days till my birthday!
from angryquail :
I clicked on your banner and I love your diary! You're going on my favorites!
from cocoabutter :
Yay, number 100! I shall make a proper note of it in my profile, because that is something to be proud of. ;) And yes, I love the smell of cocoabutter, which is why I picked this username. Suntan lotion smells like summer, don't you think?
from s-m-r :
Ah...when we getting the chance to hang out again? It's been too long. I want to take you out for a bite to eat here in Baltimore. And I have a feeling you'll like the chiropractor after a while. And not because he's going to 'whip it out.' --SMR
from punktart :
i bet you're a badass teacher, that's all i have to say!
from hsiutime :
@_@ I am jealous. I'll send a man over to live in it :)
from hsiutime :
Congrats on the play! :D Flowers from complete strangers are the best kind of flowers!
from thecritic :
Holy Cow! I just ready your little bio and your birthday is the same day as mine. August 4 kick ass! Sorry that makes me stupidly happy for some reason.
from musicchick44 :
I just found you through 12%...I knew your name was familiar and it's because you are part of my Bill Joel ring. Anyway, I just wanted to drop by and say that I really enjoyed the few entries that I've read so far. I especially like the teacher stuff, cuz that's what I'm working toward now! :o)
from thecritic :
Heeeey! You're a fellow beermate now. You kick ass, that's really awesome.
from gcchick182 :
"i bought new underwear" hahah niccee... i love buying new underwear. just thought i'd share.
from s-m-r :
Ah, so you want to play "Good Cop, Bad Cop" with Joe now, is it? ;D You naughty, naughty girl...! --SMR
from simonviews :
Your review is up at Simon Says Reviews.
from fiestada :
Jim's home now; any type of contact with Mom would be appreciated. I don't think she knows the meaning of the word trivial. Ooooh, how'd you do on the EW Pop Culture Quiz? And you just let me know when you have some spare time, woman. We need to get liquored up and talk about boys.
from fiestada :
You drunken minx!
from natty-kate :
wow! sounds like the alcohol induced night was great! :)
from hibiscus101 :
lmao that is one of the funniest things ever. and the game show network is one of those screwy channels i watch when theres no good food on food network. DOUBLE WHAMMY!
from jessnichole :
That must very upsetting.. I hate stupid people like that. I know plenty of em too.. It's really pathetic. We don't really hear about it too much happeneing to the teachers, except for a recent case of the art teacher getting his house egged every night for a week, but more often than not it's with other students. Stealing the t-83 calculators and such, those expensive stupid things. They recently had to put a camera in front of the locker rooms because kids were breaking the locks somehow to get into them and stealing stuff. It's scary to think what this small tiny town is coming to, ya know? haha.
from hibiscus101 :
alright ppl help the lil guy out:-P go to www.kiss108.com click on "Medford Idol" and vote for a boy named Arthur so he can move on to the next round.
from fiestada :
Damn it, I haven't seen your banner yet! And believe you me, I'm lookin'.
from jessnichole :
Hey! :) Just wanna say you are so cool! :) ahha.. I lvoe reading your entries... and I can definently see your an english teacher with all your typings... my aunt is becoming an english teacher (last year in college now I think), and she corrects me all the time. :) I'll check in on you every once in awhile. :)
from amberfalls :
I love buying new underware. It's like some strange addiction. I can go without food, but I just can't pass up that cute little bra and panties set at Victoria's Secret. -a-
from kissedpeach :
youre right...ive never seen an english teacher this cool. lol very cool
from s-m-r :
Heheh...you got in the Baltimore diaryring too, eh? Don't know why I did; it's not like I know anyone else in it, or actually spent some effort getting to know them. Take it easy, and make it an excellent day, Ms. B!
from barenaked500 :
This sorta reminded me of you - http://www.gotlaughs.com/funpages/splishsplashbaby.cfm :)
from barenaked500 :
PS - I wouldn't mind him being MINE though. :))))
from barenaked500 :
I am ALL about Ryan. :) I think they're cute together.
from fiestada :
Happy Valentine's Day, dear!
from barenaked500 :
WOAH! I just took your quiz...I am good! :)

from barenaked500 :
you took off work to see potter! you are obsessed! ;o) im goin sunday...
from fifty-four :
i think 54 is definitely a fateful number - while it brought you to your "ghetto" apartment, it has brought me to my ghetto roommate and her lazy, drug dealing ways... ok this note is pointless!! :)
from barenaked500 :
About that converation with your mom...ive had myself many of those so i know how you feel...ugh. ;./
from barenaked500 :
Steven Page and Ed Robertson are definately in my top five too. ;o)
from cdghost :

from perceptionss :
You sound nice. I mean that sincerely and not in a sarcastic way. Here's hoping you didn't throw that Y2k bug costume away:) Booby
from near-sighted :
oh god, now sexuality is good and all, but that's just taking it way too far. lysol, disinfectant hand wipes please!
from artsykelly :

from barenaked500 :
Ahhhhh, refering to someone and using a meanie from Harry Potter. Obsessive much?
from mydemand :
Awww you're welcome :-) A bio would be good, maybe something about your school? Something like that school statistics thing would be cool. Argh, can't think LOL
from skylar711 :
skylar711 signed guestbook.
from genibee :
Aww, now I miss my little red Festiva. I loved that car, damnit *sniffle*. Oh, well - enjoy your new baby.
from alaylam :
Well thank you for the lovely comment, it means a lot :)
from weetabix :
Oh dear. The pooing in the tub. That is so wrong and yet so right. If Baby Jesus didn't think it was ok to poo in the tub, he wouldn't have put it so near the toilet, now would he? Rock on, party girl.
from kyoojin :
You make me giggle, especially all your drunken entries! Keep writing dear, ill be reading :)
from near-sighted :
in deed, i am proud that you were able to sing the chorus of "don't be cruel" by bobby brown. there must be some award for that. your last few entries have given me nightmares about high school. at least #17 indicates you're having a heckuva time. props!
from praiseandrew :
raise the praise for andrew!
from damodred :
haha, well i would play in the mud, but it's 20 below freezing outside, so i don't think there will be any. i just wish things would be worked out and stay worked out.
from damodred :
i cried so hard at the end of chasing amy too. love like that, that seems actually real and not hollywood fake crap, always makes me cry. like bridges on madison county or the truth about cats and dogs... i hate to try so i try to avoid those movies though.
