nary a muffin entry for ages and now things are locked. this cannot be good. In other news - I just watched Coal Miner's Daughter for the first time. My heavens that is good stuff. Lets get together and have ourselves a marathon. All coal miner's daughter! I'm guessing I could watch it at least 12 times before needing to stop. Yeah, I'm hot.

Hi Muffin. I can't believe it has taken me this long to figure out where to leave a note for you. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for all the supportive notes that you've left me in the past. My diary is down indefinately due to pyscho mistake of a boyfriend. Anyway thank you. You really helped me keep my chin up when I thought I'd really lose my shit. I'll be back on d-land with adventures of the anti-Wolfram and Hartt chronicles.

Aw shucks, darlin'. Anobody looks 842% cooler on an old motorcycle. S'truth! Thanks~ >)
from curiouoso :
Thanks for the note. It's always nice to hear from you. I nearly ran into the "Godfather" today. I know someday they'll read the old diary and conclude I shouldn't be allowed within 100 miles of any secret service protected individual, and I'll get free trips to Hawaii to keep me away from the BIG CHEESES when they come round. What a grand idea! Please if you know the Judge or are the prosecutor in my future trial, should it ever come to that, plead insanity and exile me to Costa Rica or some where warm. Deal? Curiouoso*

The Lord be praised, Ms. Crazy didn't jump off the Tallahaase Bridge in spite of stupid jurors, sleazy defense attorneys ( My only hope for any future Legal Trouble! ), and corrupt judges! Thank goodness, I thought we lost you to a mob run Indian Casino. I just about gave up after working so hard to find you. You know i like my women a little on the Trashy Side! Which of course means I need to clean up my act considerably to impress you.... How's the dog? 2 of my three are hunky dory with one bad boy puppy sulking cause he ate too much turkey.... Yours, in bytes anyway, Curiouoso*

Hello! It has been 60 days since there has been a muffin entry. That's even worse than me! Hope all is well with you and the furpeople. Come back soon!

For what it's worth, you ARE doing the right thing. Fighting the good fight. I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again--thank you, thank you, thank you. !**X

Wait a minute??/ May 28th - June 1st? I goofed up I thought it was this weekend! We'll have to revisit this later. What a dummy I am! Curiouoso*

perhaps I might ride the motorcycle up, I need to visit mt Aunt and Uncle anyway in Henderson, a few miles west. If we could meet Sat sometimw at your convenience?Amy will absolutely not ride the bike that far, but said I could go. Would you be there with your spouse/boyfriend or who? Amy and I could drive the car, but I really want to go by motoir cycle if possible. Let me know asap, We probably would have bunches of fun either way. WE just went to Laughlin, NV yesterday on the bus with a bunch of people from her work. It's was lots of fun and only $10. each with mucho coupons that really made it free. It was too long though for the one day turn around. Anxiously awaiting your reply, Curiouoso! [email protected]
from curiouoso :
Haven't seen any entries from you lately... What's wrong? Don't you love me anymore!????? Curiouoso*
from curiouoso :
Thanks for the note. This was floating around lately and I thought it explained many republicans (Not you of course, since you grew up in Arizona it's either congenital ((wrong spelling probably but I like it that way)) or inherited, so you can't be blamed I guess): What is your IQ? A man enters a bar and orders a drink. The bar has a robot bartender. The robot serves him a perfectly prepared cocktail, and then asks him, "What's your IQ?" The man replies "150," and the robot proceeds to make conversation about global warming factors, quantum physics and spirituality, biomimicry, environmental interconnectedness, string theory, nano-technology, and sexual proclivities. The customer is very impressed and thinks, "This is really cool." He decides to test the robot. He walks out of the bar, turns around, and comes back in for another drink. Again, the robot serves him the perfectly prepared drink and asks him, "What's your IQ?" The man responds, "about a 100." Immediately the robot starts talking, but this time, about football, NASCAR, baseball, supermodels, favorite fast foods, guns, and women's breasts. Really impressed, the man leaves the bar and decides to give the robot one more test. He heads out and returns, the robot serves him and asks, "What's your IQ?" The man replies, "Er, 50, I think " And the robot says... real slowly... "So.............. ya gonna vote for Bush again?" You ever come back Arizona way? Come bask in some biker subculture with me, It'll open both our eyes up. Curiouoso*

sometimes all logic flies away from us. and in those times we should be shot in the foot. I think this would make us all better people, that and put us all on crutches.

from haloaskew :
I've had a hacking cough the last few months (nights are the worst - I hardly slept at all last night either), but I'm pretty sure it's related to the blood pressure meds I've been on since January. I had the cough while I was on this drug the last time, but attributed it to smoking. Um, not that smoking helps matters. At any rate, one day when I was off that med (in my "hadn't seen a new doctor in KY" phase), I found one of those Rx info pamphlets from the pharmacy and discovered that coughing is a side effect. Then I realized I hadn't had the bad cough since I'd been off the drug. Ohhhhhhh! I hadn't gone to bed with a bag of Vitamin C drops in forever! Since I've been back on the drug, Vitamin C drops are my new best friend. One of the things on my to do list is call my doc (I have an appt next month too) and see if we can do a switcheroo to something else. When your co-worker makes jokes about giving you the Heimlich Maneuver several times a week, something's got to give. And hey, I'm happy your breathing prob was diagnosed! And depending on how serious you were about your third eyeball comment/loving the fawning & fussing, you know what came to mind? Perhaps your "addiction" is Munchausen (sp?) syndrome. Yay! Another condition to fret over! By the way, you can have my third eyeball. People tell me it's "creepy." (Hey! Renew your SuperGold membership!)
from curiouoso :
I forgot the condition most unlikely to occur in me, (In today's entry) but certainly you might consider being tested for: "Dipsomania erectus prosocutus", That of course is a condition in which you really want a drink after becoming incensed that you failed to incarcerate a felon for 1000 years or so by losing a case, or alternatively in celebration when succeeding in lambasting another ambulance chaser type of guy successfully! Curiouoso* on his way to becoming Charletenus Medicallous!

You wrote: "That was the funniest thing I have read all week. I am going to post it in my office for all the sharks to read." Thank you, I try to keep you amused! Hey!

Thanks, Curiouoso* /Tom or ac tually Rick if you must know....Don't spread it around...I burned my draft card in the 70's!
from curiouoso :
I just read this, another compliment for Shahib Cheney. Subject: CLARIFICATION OF TEXAS HUNTING LAW The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department issued a statement today saying Vice President Cheney broke no law by shooting a lawyer instead of a quail over the weekend. A TPWD spokesman noted that, in Texas, lawyers are not considered game creatures, and are thus not subject to seasonal limitations or bag limits. It was further noted that lawyer hunting was encouraged as the state is overrun with the pesky creatures. A local food critic said that, contrary to rumor, lawyers do not taste like chicken, but rather like bovine dung which is a major component of their composition. Below is a complete listing of the regulations..... Texas 2005- 2006 Season and Bag Limit On Attorneys 1. Any person with a valid Texas hunting license may harvest attorneys. 2. Attorneys may be taken with traps and deadfalls. Currency may not be used as bait. 3. Attorneys may not be killed with a motorized vehicle. If accidentally struck, the hunter should move the carcass to the roadside, and proceed to a car wash. 4. It is unlawful to chase, herd or harvest attorneys from a motor vehicle, watercraft or aircraft. Marked police vehicles may be used as shooting platforms. 5. It is unlawful to shout, "Whiplash, Ambulance, or Free Booze" for the purpose of trapping attorneys. 6. It is unlawful to hunt attorneys within 100 yards of Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, or Infiniti dealerships. 7. It is unlawful for a hunter to disguise himself as a reporter, drug dealer, female law clerk, sheep, accident victim, physician, bookie, or tax accountant for the purpose of hunting attorneys. 8. Care should be used so as not to endanger any remaining species. We would not want a repetition of the disaster that followed the "no limit" season on the subspecies, "Honest Lawyers". That particular variety is near extinction. Excessive harvesting could diminish the chances for survival of the Bill of Rights

Thanks again for leaving me the kind note praising my sanity or intimating the opposite; either way it's great to know you care...I actually put you in the today's web page! My driving lessons for you: RE: your entry for today, dispese with the bumper sticker, just get a big old sedan with a few major dents and a sign in the rear window, "No Tengo insurence!". The road will magically clear in front of you, mercedes and beemers will cower to your munificence and you can bluff anyone! The proof is in your dents. To really add some intimidation factor, have a friend pepper the side of the drivers door with a few 308 winchester rounds or a clip of 357 magnum. Please not while you are in the car! That's how I do my freeway driving! Curiouoso* I spik spanish with the best of them!

from curiouoso :
Thank you for your kind note. I too love a hot debate, hot conversation. I try so hard to enlighten you poor deluded Bushies! I know you must be good at heart even if you do get excited by imprisoning Assholes. It could be worse, you might actually run for some kind of office some day and I'd be forced to disown you. ;) I just found out today Mel and Nick are planning a 10 day jaunt to Hawaii for thier honeymoon, only $10,000. !! I haven't spent $10,000 on a vacation ever, not even all 4 of us for 3 weeks in Europe! I know she worked for a bank, but I hope she didn't embezzle half of it! Curiouoso* p.s. I think Wellbutrin XL was what caused my stroke 3 years ago. Watch that stuff, it has an unsavory reputation!

I just know that I really want this tattoo--and have wanted it for a while. I'm a dork, what can I say? *snort* Expect a blow-by-blow (prick by prick?) account. Laws, it's been so long--but the guy doing it comes highly recommended by friends. Maybe I'll go to sleep like I almost did during my first tattoo. Whoop. I am a wild woman.

The silk boxers is a good idea, but she needs to put matching panties in, and on the card say something like one pair for putting on and one for takng off. A matched pair, like us, go so good together! It's just an idea... You'll get the address of the next party if you promise to show up. Now go win some cases! Curiouoso* visualizing how those panties would look on a lawyer....

I think most guys could care less about Valentines day. Our only concern is getting the beloved enough stuff to keep us out of trouble. Other than that, it is a non event... Maybe she should just buy herself an engagement ring and get it over with?
from smedindy :
Hey dere. Just telling you (since you cruise over and comment from time to time) that I set up a notify list if'n your buddy list is full. Toodles!
from bludragnfly :
Yours words are incredibly eloquent. I am still reeling with laughter after reading your "The luckiest woman in the Western World" entry. I have DONE THAT exact same thing! From the buying my favorite food at the store and being excited to eat it (on the way home...) I admire you. It's absolutely invigorating to read the words of a strong and intelligent woman. Your confidence is encouraging and inspiring! You are on my favorites!!
from captainron :
I'm not a doctor. I don't even play one on TV, but I do know a little bit about stress. I've been dealing with it ever since I can remember. Sometimes when the body gets stressed, you swallow air. There are a few reasons for this, mine is that my body responds to major stress with PMD (post nasal drip). That causes reflex swallowing and air goes in filling up your stomach and restricting your diaphrams movements. This results in less air getting where it is supposed to. It's just a theory and maybe a bad one. I hope you feel better soon. Happy Tuesday, Ron

Girl, that dress is on sale at Spiegel.com. It was a splurge for me, but in the long run, a good love investment, I think. ;)
from haloaskew :
Some of da booties I saw at Wal-Moot (heh) have wild stripey colors (dark purples and pinks), but they ones I bought are light pink, blue and yellow pastels, sorta patchwork like, but not patchwork. Fuck, I'm gonna have to whip out the digital camera this weekend. Oh my god, it's 8:49 pm! I need to gorge before I start my 9 pm fasting! (See my latest post)
from curiouoso :
Ok, I added you too. You're so lucky! BTW, I didn't notice spelling errors, that's my line, not yours! Besides I like intelligent women, which is probably why I added you. Smarter than the average bear, Curiouoso*

I dedicated todays entry to you. Best check it out! When are you going to add me to your favorites??! http://curiouoso.diaryland.com/c4m4me.html Thinkin about U! Curiouoso*
from curiouoso :
Thanks for checking out my diary. I read some of yours too...You know the old I'll show you mine if you show me yours...! You seem OK for a woman probably nearly as old as me! Seriously, enjoyed much of what I read. I hope you're not the prosecuting attorney if I ever get in trouble, I'd just have to Email you for the names of those Psych. Whores. (Your honor, It wasn't really him that did it, It was an alien trying to impersonate a real person) Or maybe I'll plead insanity and use this note as proof! Come back and visit me again or just break down and put me on your favorites list. Still crazy after all these years, Curiouoso*
from haloaskew :
That's right. I've never eaten lobster! Well, the only thing close was probably something like "crab and lobster cakes," or maybe (can't recall) I had a bite of someone's lobster a long time ago (that sounds naughty. heh!) But as far as a big ol' fresh lobster on my plate, never! The whole lobster thing kinda freaks me out with the claws and the spiky curly antennae and the EYEBALLS. I feel bad for 'em too. Poor loppas. But when I go to Maine, FUCK THAT.

1. Thank you for the "ooh-la-la". Yep, that's me in 1999. Haven't changed much--though I don't often wear that much eye makeup anymore. 2. Oh yeah, I know from command performances--and have decided that the well-being of my fellow employees is more important than any unspoken (yet mandatory) attendance. *grin* 'Cause who knows what could go horribly awry with a flaming (and festive) drink in a sea of holiday polyester wearers...hmmmmm. See? I care about my fellow humans. *grrrrrrrrrr* *laugh* !!x.
from haloaskew :
Hey, Muffin...thanks for sending your thoughts and love to Tater/Stacey! Sounds like the legal advice will be such a big help too!! And as far as the rage goes, I'm about ready to hop on a plane to Hawaii and give that fucking asshole a big fat helping of justice...Texas style. PAYBACK'S A BITCH. You in?
from tater-fay :
Actually, I do have some questions for you. Could you please email me at [email protected] way we can correspond outside of Diaryland notes!! My name is Stacey, by the way (though you can call me tater if you want..it's a family nickname!) Thanks!
from tater-fay :
Thank you so much for your messages. This is all so fucking unreal to me. I am so full of anger and sadness and denial and even hope..it's like being on a rollercoaster or stuck in a horrible funhouse or something. When I have any legal questions it is good knowing I can ask you. So far the detectives are still trying to piece together exactly what happened. Nobody is sure yet whether there were any witnesses to this. I think there HAD to be, because SOMEONE (and I'm sure it wasn't that motherfucking boyfriend) called 911...She lived/lives in Hawaii. The detectives in Hawaii kind of seem to live on Hawaii time, as does everybody else in Hawaii (if you know what I mean...Hawaii time meaning that people go about things really mellow and slowly)...I'm just glad this asshole is behind bars on other outstanding warrants and that they can keep him there until they have more time to investigate and are able to charge him with her murder. A rape advocate was at the hospital a day or so ago and there are signs of sexual assault (which just makes me want to throw up even more) and so hopefully they will be able to pin that charge on him as well. I know my sister's spirit isn't in her body anymore and that she is with God (and I'm not even a religious person, but I can truly say I feel this) and with my deceased relatives, etc. Once again, thanks for your notes...I'm probably rambling..I'm just not myself!
from haloaskew :
I know...when I wrote my entry tonight I thought of you in particular, dealing with this stuff on a DAILY basis, when most people only hear about it on the news. So now it's suddenly a little closer to my doorstep, and I don't know what to DO with my RAGE! How Tater-Fay and her family are keeping it together, I have no idea. They must be shell-shocked...going through the motions. Those poor folks! Puts a whole new spin on thanksgiving, ya know?
from haloaskew :
Ya know, I just realized that I'm not getting my D-land note notification emails...FUCKING AOL! Blocks everything I WANT, and nothing I don't want! At any rate, I was saying tonight on the phone to my mom that next time farm mgr is standing by my desk and the phone rings, I should just sit there, looking at him, whilst buffing my nails and smacking a big wad of gum until he says "Halo, the phone...is ringing." Me: "Oh, yeah, funny how it does that sometimes. What's your point?" and then blow a HUGE FUCKING BUBBLE IN HIS FACE. heh heh heh. (If you think Carol Burnett did a good Missus Wiggins...I can top it!)
from haloaskew :
Thank you, thank you, thank you for understanding! I've been cleaning out my files ("just in case") and plan to work on a resignation letter to have on hand the next time we "talk." Being such a small office there are so many complexities...Swear to god, I could start a conversation with him and he would suddenly take a cell phone call and give me that "one minute!" finger...There's never a GOOD TIME, ya know? I almost want to put a resignation letter in his inbox, slink back to my desk, start packing up, and see how long it takes him to find it. GAH!!!
from dukkha-tanha :
To read my re-count of the trial, go here: http://dukkha-tanha.diaryland.com/050430_65.html. I was just re-reading it and I think I had a few beers while writing it, I had to resist the urge to go back and edit. I alos have a private entry linked with other bits and pieces about the trial from other sources, the info for that UN: this PW: sucks. The guy who did it was truly a piece of work. You'll be jealous that you never got to prosecute this one!!! =)
from dukkha-tanha :
Oh great banner! It got me to click, and I rarely do. Yay! I'm adding you, because I love the trial stories. My husband thinks I should be a lawyer, but I think I'm more paralegal material. Anyway. My son was involved in a murder trial as a witness, not once but twice because he was re-tried (and he was the shittiest piece of shit ever), if you ever want to read about it I can hook you up with the entry where I wrote about the whole thing. Okay, that's it for the longest first note ever. =)

Yes...I do know about the log that burns with different colors that you speak of. I actually thought it was the Pine Mountain brand that offered this, but apparently the box I bought was the "regular kind". I think it's a special type they make or something. And I know all too well the forgetting to open the chimney flue situation from past experience, many moons ago. Which is why when I moved in this place, I made myself a little note and taped it on the side of the fireplace that says "OPEN FLUE!" This has saved me assloads of pain.

What I tried to write on your comments page the other day, with no luck, was that you should check into Allen Carr's book "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" (very interesting: allows you keep smoking until you finish the book, so maybe not the best for you right now. I never finished the book, hence, I'm still smoking). And I was also going to say "Please don't become one of those annoying fanatical ex-smokers ranting about lung cancer and smoke-in--the-face and whatnot". Too late, I guess. All I can say now is: Shitballs, honey. I'm proud of you! When I quit (one of these days!) will you catch my back? And for those cravings, I urge you to check into a can of La Choy Chow Mein noodles. Or popcorn. Better than eating chocolate, and who cares about flabby thighs when you're working on a set of healthy lungs? It's like triage in the heat of battle. Kinda sorta.

You have a point. But here's the thing: THEY (the mentally challenged) have enough trouble getting their pants on correctly every day. That's a big high five. So is sunshine. Going to "work" is FUN for them. They don't THINK/DWELL/BEND THEIR SPINE BACKWARDS worrying about shit. Paycheck? Bills? Wha? It's all just THERE, floating about with no sense. So many colors, people talking, sometimes to THEM, music, stuff, things are moving and "Wow, I can't wait to do that again tomorrow!" I imagine it as some fantastic completely legal acid trip. And they probably make pretty close to the money I do. FUCK. I either need a hit of acid...or a lobotomy, or a lobotomy AND a hit of acid. Mmmmm. I'm missing Paxil now, even more than Whataburger.
from fightn4life :
Congratulations on your decision to take back your life and say good riddance to nicotine. I too know Zuzu, she was a powerful influence while letting go of my 30-year addition. After years of attempting to quit I followed the program you have started. That was almost two years ago (October 23, 2003) It might have been one of the most difficult things I have done not only quitting but a life altering change, but most likely the best thing I have done. You can do this, one little step at a time. Loved your good-bye letter, and if you need any additional support Please just stop by. Sandyz

from sunshine0221 :
You say manipulative man stealing cocktail waitress like it's a BAD thing!! I really disliked Maggie and he gang and Ivette was unwise (and $450,000 poorer) to put new "friends" before her family. I was rooting for the Jedi, and would have been happy for any of them to win. And I am so there. And why the heck is it that every season a smoker doesn't bring enough cigarettes and has to quit smoking in the middle of the game. Like there isn't enough stress already?? I do NOT believe you. By the second week you'd be snuggling up to sleazy guys and abandoning all promises just so that you could stay another week. Or would that be me?
from haloaskew :
I know...the part where she let her husband (boyfriend?) go was chilling, but it felt so SUDDEN. I was thinking he was sleeping when the sun broke, and then it was like...oh, he's SLEEPING alright. The eternal wet nap. Did you feel that they should've drawn the end part out more? Her struggle to keep him alive, being desperate that she was about to be ALONE, and how long had he been dead? But she only silently cried, kissed him, and let him bob off. HEY, WAIT! Where's the freak out?! The type she exhibited the afternoon before when he bobbed off when they both fell asleep? If I were her, I'd want to cling to him for awhile longer, but that's probably not a good idea in shark infested waters. And then she suddenly made the decision to drown herself. Where was the anguish that MORNING of having to come to THAT point? Where was the emotion? (shock, shock, sharks about, I get it) but it's like she simply went "fuck it." Yeah, but first show us a close-up of her saying a prayer, or reasoning it all out verbally. Thought the ending was a bit of quick wrap-up/cop out. (And how close were the rescue folks?!) We will never know. Tricky, tricky filmmakers!

Some native American tribe surmised that a person's conscience was a cube that sat next to the heart. When doing something wrong, the cube spun and hit the heart with every corner. That's what caused the pain of wrongful action. However, bad people had done so many bad things that all their corners had worn down, and they no longer felt the pain of the spinning cube. I'm glad you still have your conscience-cube. **!X.

I can't believe you suggested getting up at 3am, because it was JUST what I was considering doing while at work. I have to write an outline for an essay on subjective criticism...yeah, it may be better to wait till morning.

Thankgod for you Muffin! My heart goes out to you, just reading that made me cry i can't imagine being involved in it let alone being the mother. Thanks.

Thank you for answering, what we would call here, a “bullshit question”. Two in fact. If I had to have guessed, I would have said you voted Republican and from reading you, I’d say you would be fiscally conservative and socially liberal, in short everything that is good about the Republican party.
from doctoredjnr :
Hollyfae and I are discussing your political leanings and there is some debate going on at the moment. Could you please tell us a) if you are a voter and b) the political party you vote for?

HA! No potable water. I still can't believe I'm the United Nations. I can be a peacemaker sometimes, but come on. That pisses me off. Anyway, as soon as my mother downloads her pics from her digital, I can get them up tomorrow. I don't have a digital, I live in the Dark Ages. Oh the suspense!
from pummela :
Hello! Wow, thanks for the compliments, you make me feel all... artistic like. Hm! I just finished up the binding for the spine, all I have to do now is reinforce and glue it down and we're all done. Hallelujiah!
from haloaskew :
Yep, the night after me and KY guy were at the French Quarter, someone was murdered a few blocks from where we'd been talking to gay guy. We didn't realize exactly HOW vulnerable we'd been until we'd both gotten home. People were telling us "You DIDN't go to one of the cemetaries did you? Noooooo! That's a total tourist murder trap!" Oh, and about the looting, after I wrote my entry last night, I was thinking...oh shit, looters! Then there was piece on the news about it. But here's the thing: If those fuckers wanna wade through contaminated floodwaters to get a flat screen TV, good LUCK finding someplace to put it when you get back home (IF you get back home. Sucked into a drainage pipe? Oh, too bad!) Where the hell are they going find someplace dry to store the damn thing? Go for it! And hey, I didn't realize flood insurance was mandatory on mortgages now! And the question you posed: What would I save if I had to get out in a hurry? Besides my precious doggie angels? My purse and keys, my black box o' important papers, a suitcase/bag to hold any photos or momentos I could grab...whatever's on the sink in my bathroom (swoosh!), a few pieces of clothing, my laptop, my digital camera, a few books, my water bottle and a Diet Coke. But really, of course, it would depend on how much time I've got. As long as I have me, doggies, purse, car key, I'm good to go. What about you?
from thundermtncg :
Hey muff! I found an article on the news that so reminded me of you, I had to send it. I can only send a part of it, because of space, so email me at [email protected] if you want the whole article. The title was 'Eight Years in a Louisiana Jail, but He Never Went to Trial'. So here is a small portion: Back in Baton Rouge, James Thomas is now free. But this fall, state prosecutors plan to ask Louisiana's 1st Circuit Court of Appeal to reinstate the charge. The state attorney general's office won't comment because the case is pending. Thomas was charged with three other men, including his brother, Percy Dyer, in the slaying of Dennis "Doc" Scruggs, 19, of Baton Rouge. None of the men has been tried, and three have been released from jail. Because it started as a death-penalty case, each defendant was entitled under law to two lawyers. It took three years to find eight public defenders qualified to handle the case. The charges were reduced to second-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison without parole. Jamie Fontenot worked on Thomas' case for several years as a salaried, $29,000-a-year public defender, and as a court-appointed attorney when she went into private practice. She withdrew from the case when the state didn't pay her $5,000 fee for her work as a private attorney, as the court had ordered. While in the public defender's office, she also juggled 70 to 80 other felony cases at the same time, she says. "Part of the trouble was scheduling court dates with eight lawyers' calendars," she says. "Someone would say, 'What about December?' and someone would say, 'I've got a trial.' 'OK, what about January? What about February?' " "The record shows very long lapses of time when there's no movement on the case at all," Alexander says. "That is inexcusable. Somebody's responsible for that. This is nine years now of a man's life lost by no fault of his own." I will say it again, Muff...Thank you for all you do.

Yeah, that's what makes me feel good too. He knew we cared enough to do everything we possibly could. It's nice to know too that he had a few good days of joy and spunk before he started going downhill. And he's now free from any pain or distress. Plus, Exceller has a new buddy to romp with!
from pummela :
Hello! Wow, thanks for the compliments on the scrapbook - Ive been working on it for so long now I have absolutely no clue what it looks like to anybody else. If that makes sense. :) // Yeah, the first time I got my pump I was running in the 400s all the damn time, so the first few days was a little scary. Then, I got really, really perky. I usually have pretty good control, so this running high thing is driving me crazy! Im going to give it till Monday, then Im calling her again. I really like the fact that somebody else actually understands what Im going through, youre right, we gotta stick together. Yeah, um, word. Okay! Im going now. Thanks!

from pummela :
Okay so Ive been reading more of your older entries, and I wanted to let you know I take back my statement of us being alike. You are MUCH stronger than I could ever be. Im amazed you can work (and thrive!) in such a hardcore job. Just thought Id let you know.
from pummela :
Well hi! Thanks for your note, Im glad you found me - I find it a little creepy how much we have in common, I gotta say... when I was diagnosed, my doctor said "I guarantee you there will be a cure in ten years." Youre on the same crazy pills as me, hell you even smoke the same brand I do (or did, I quit a year ago)! Neat, huh? I actually don't live in Dallas anymore, I moved up to Portland last September, but when I did live in Dallas I went to Dr. Rosenstock - he mostly does osteoporosis patients now. I totally understand the condescending thing, though, Rosenstock was a master at that. Im on a pump, I have been for about six years now - its pretty damn amazing. My A1c dropped four points in six months after I got on it, its incredibly conveniant and flexible. I just heard about Lantus from this new doctor, she said a lot of the research done on it is helping dose pump people. So, thanks for that, too!
from purpleanarch :
What a nice combination, criminal lawyer and (above entry contents). If I were able to figure out something like that the first day I bought it, I'd have to stare at it for an hour. But then my brain would probably clog. Co co do is obviously something you stubbornly insist on because you don't want to give into everyone else's moral majority of the main interpretation of the shirt. It is abstract art, remember... Co co do is the fireworks at the bottom of your page, an escape from everyone else's interpretation...
from haloaskew :
Oh wait, I mistyped: it's Co Co DO. (Like Loretti and DO!) Sounds like a new art form, more complex than DaDaism, but less formal than Cubism. We'll form a new art movement! I'm a BIT busy right now, but how does Tuesday at 4 pm sound?
from haloaskew :
I almost bought a Celebrity Life magazine...it's new and attractively priced at $1.89! I SO need to know what's going on with Angelina and Brad! But I resisted those urges. (You know what's weird? And I'm only telling you this, not because you care, but because you're the first to post me a note tonight and I'm on the subject: Brad and Angie didn't formally come out as a couple to the press, because that would be, what? unclassy? since he's in the midst of a divorce. YET he shows up by her side when she adopts a new baby. All that money and not a lick of tact, or brains. Jeeps! And his new hair color looks like ASS). But you know what DOESN'T look like ass? You in your Co Co Da t-shirt! (That was YOU modeling, right?) If I wasn't a heterooosexshhhul female, I'd take you out to Red Lopster in a heartbeat. Just don't order too much, baby. I blew most of my last paycheck on a new oil gauge for my truck and 3 bottles of Boone's.

Yay! Your banner was approved!!!
from haloaskew :
Ooooh ooooh! I remember my mom telling me a story about her friend's kitten that crawled into their boat in the garage and bit into a fish hook. Poor thing was there, with a fish hook poked through her cheek, FOR HOURS before anyone found her. I think she made it out of the ordeal safely though. But for a LONG time, the image of that kitten haunted me. And especially during those moments in life when I would try to force myself to think of something nice, inevitably, my brain would go to the opposite extreme and I would have KITTEN FISH HOOK IN THE CHEEK FLASHBACKS. Hadn't thought of it in years, but thanks for the reminder! ;) Hey, I saw your banner on D-land tonight - twice! Cool beans...very clever! :)

Yeah. Lots of down time at work. Bored as hell. So I was reading through your entertaining diary. Not all the way through it yet, but I'll get there. ;) So many entries make me giggle like I'm 12 again!

from luckeme :
Yeah. It's pretty shitty. I've contacted all of the agencies, hospitals, treatment centers I can think of and look up. NONE of them can do the daily alcohol testing. His fines are paid off now, and his probation officer, really isn't helping. I've typed up letters and faxed them in requesting different alternatives for testing, and I've got no reply. It's bullshit and aggrevates me. A teacher can sleep with one of their students and they get probation, my fiance has a dui in 2001 and they want to put him in jail for not testing daily for alcohol. It's ridiculous. I'm at my wits end and have no idea what to do. Just because that judge is an idiot, he's going to go back on the 29th, and probably be sent to jail. :: sigh :: So stupid. Thanks for the note, by the way. It was nice! :)

OOHHH gosh...I would love to join your tag writing group! That sounds like a wonderful experience. I need a little time to catch up on it though.

absolutely, undeniably, the wicked witch is dead good! I sooooo admire the humor you find in your situations...don't know that I would not come out with six guns (that I don't own and have no idea how to use) blasting if I worked with subjects of your world. But I did live in Kingman, Arizona once. (google THAT will ya!) And found that in applying for residency within the city limits, you were required to have at the VERY least ONE non-running car on blocks in your front yard along with a no good transmission to tie your dog to. Also, you were placed on a suspicious persons list if you were ever seen entering or even in the vicinity of a dental facility or office. Needless to say...I did not live there long. However the experience was one I will never forget. Thanks for brightening my days with laughter!

It's quite a coincidence you mention cosmetic puffing-up of the lips, because while I was driving home tonight, I thought "Why on EARTH would anyone want to do that?" Ok, maybe someone with BARELY ANY top or bottom lip to speak of, but every single pic I've seen of anyone who's had this done looks like a freak! Check out the soap star Hunter Tylo's fish-look on AwfulPlasticSurgery.com! GAH! And Melanie Griffith just needs to quit it already (I heard a rumor that Antonio told her the same thing). Angelina's lips drive me nuts in BAD WAY. DO NOT LIKE. TOO MUCH. Especially that weird crease! (I wrote an entry about it some time ago, that's how much it upsets me). For the love of all that is muffin, please reconsider ever doing any more work on your lips in the future! I'd rather you get a tattoo of Little Debbie on your forehead. Seriously. (That'd be COOL! Make sure you get them to pay for advertising space).

The only movement in my company is me getting up every 10 minutes to locate someone who has a phone call, because they're anywhere EXCEPT THEIR DESK. Besides that, there's the whole boss in the bathroom thing (which is right around the corner from my desk).

from zencelt :
My opinion. 1- The injuries were a result of the defendant's actions and circumstances which he instigated. 2- The police defended themselves. The injuries were not caused by calculated, planned and strategized shots to the abdomen whereby his guts would fall out. The extent of his injuries is a non-issue. 3 - If he was shooting at the dirt, he wouldn't have shot the house or the office so high up in his body. 4 - His issues are his issues, and if he isn't crazy he should be in jail. He is a danger to himself and society period, whether he can control his actions or not. 5 - How many thousands/millions of people in this world are diagnosed with depression/manic depression? Do we forgive them outright for their crimes if they get hurt in the process of committing them? If I shoot someone and it rockochets, hits me and paralyzes me, do I get forgiven for killing him? Um, no. There. Hope that was helpful.

I completely know how you feel. The sugars will drive you through the ground. And the cycles with them... I took a ton of insulin yesterday and felt like crap when they came down into a better range, ran them up again to feel better but felt a different kind of awful... And I do get annoyed when people say someone they know died of diabetes because it was different. Because I do take care of my diabetes when my ed isn't out of control, its not like I do it to be lazy! Also when the people are old or its type II. And the appetite suppresants... Which kind did you get? Because some will give you awful comedowns, especially if they have ephedra and will really mess with your sugars. Take care. (((hug))) Gwen

When I told mom the story of SquiggManson and U.S. Customs, she mentioned she'd just seen something on the news about a middle-aged COMPLETELY NORMAL woman detained and harassed for HOURS at customs because she was carrying a plastic butter knife...in a picnic basket...for the sole purpose of using it to spread peanut butter on sandwiches. But they let the guy with the chain saw, homemade sword, knives and brass knuckles in. I don't get it, I really don't.

I can diagnose your symptoms without even hearing anything more: you have Exploding Eyeball Syndrome. I would offer you advice on how to cure it, but I'm no doctor.

What happens if you throw caution to the wind and wear *shock, horror* proper stockings? Is there a matron at the door checking for garter straps? I ask only because for one brief, heat-prostrated summer when I lived in DC I worked for a place that required me to wear hose. I grew up in DC--without air conditioning--so I thought I was tough. I was not tough enough for panty hose + 110% humidity. So...are the men in your office as stringently sartorially patrolled as the women? Where's their list of summer no-nos? *grin* (You read my poetry? You are a brave, brave soul. I'm glad you found some of it diggable. Thank you~)

I know...that's why I always refrain from looking closely at my fast food. When my eye zeroes in, I MAKE MYSELF LOOK ELSEWHERE, because I know, somewhere there's a hair. Makes me want to go on a starvation diet. Hell, I don't even trust what I cook. Two randy dogs? Hair. Everywhere. No matter how much I Fantastic-and-Paper towel the preparation area first. Doesn't matter. Turning my head and closing my eyes. That's all I have now. Don't take that away from me.

I saw this the other day, "Women are like tea bags, you never know how strong they are until they get into hot water." Sounds like your pregnant accuser is an amazing woman. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful story. **!x

I saw those "Faces of Death" movies when I was in high school! My dad gave the rental place permission for us to rent them (we were only 16). He was cool like that. I don't remember the bear/dumbass tourist scene (eeeccch!) But I do remember the one where the people at a restaurant somewhere in Thailand or thereabouts knocked monkeys unconscious (their little heads were sticking out of the table) and the diners proceeded to eat their brains...That one haunts me to this day. And something about a guy frying in the electric chair. Geez, I really need to get those movies on DVD and rehash the memories! ACK.

Let me pour you some coffee, dear. I've been passing out with hypoglycemia since I was 11 and had diabetes in my pregnancy. what fun...eh? I also am a friend of Wellbutrin, we visit regularly. I have quit smoking, but miss it very, very much.
from xat :
Hash sous verre was always in good taste. *laugh* Being older and more aware of my mortality certainly has curtailed those youthful excesses. *grin* Oh well...hey, great, fantabulous bag, darlin'. Congratulations on the statistics--you rock, and whomever says otherwise shall be firebombed. I has spoken! **!X.

Well stray kitty is at the vet being checked out as we speak. It looks like he will lose/be blind in one eye and ironically he only has one testicle - but not for long - muahahahahahahah. He is a very sweet boy, and I could ship him to you - he would make a very nice boyfriend for Shell Glickman. I have sort of named him Wesley - he comes when I call him (!!) but we could certainly change it to something more religiously compatible with Shell - like Irving or Hymie. And I do not need another CAT!!!!
from breakangel :
I was just checking out your profile and suddenly got all excited. I thought the movie version of Cider House Rules was awful TOO! Let's join hands and sing kumbayah...or however you spell it. I also felt the same way about 'Ride With the Devil.' Tobey Maguire needs to stop starring in books-made-into-movies. I love the little man, but he's like the kiss of death for any novel turned Hollywood.
from sixweasels :
Hissy mentioned I had to stop by and see your beadwork because I was raving about the crafty goodness of teacherlady. She's right - I'm in love with the fish-face now. And I loved your entry about working moms. A few years back my then-boss gave birth to twins - we were horribly understaffed and underpaid and I did her job, mine, and that of another vacant position while she bonded with her infants and collected a much fatter paycheck than mine. Nothing at all changed when she returned to work. I finally blew up at HER boss, and then felt so horribly guilty and evil, like maybe I just didn't understand because I don't have kids of my own. So it was nice to read that I'm not alone!

True, true, Spanish music on the ol' alarm clock would do it, IF I hadn't lived in Texas for most of my life. If that shit was playing, I'd just roll over and dream of tacos.
from haloaskew :
I don't know if your guestbook is working right, so I'm going re-post my note here: There was a time, many moons ago, that a (now former) friend from high school and I had a plan to spread the phrase "bully for you" across the world and make it the IT phrase. I still remember the letter she wrote me in college, complete with drawings of people from around the world. My favorite was an eskimo saying "Nanook. Seals. Bully For You!" I'm so happy to know that even though our friendship didn't make it, the PHRASE has! Bully for you! Oh, and speaking of drug convictions, I was called to jury duty a few years back for a drug case. Some Hispanic guy was caught with a teensy-tinsy amount of cocaine in his pocket after a traffic stop, and wouldn't you know it, he was all decked out in a suit and tie (probably his first) for his appearance. I KNEW the guy was guilty. It was such bullshit. If we were discussing pounds of coke, it would've been one thing, but I KNEW the guy must've had some on him (personally, I didn't care) and since I was already biased, I told the judge, and got out of there 4 hours early. Yeah, I should've been a good citizen and done my time doing jury duty, but it wouldn't have done that guy any good. Why didn't he just plead guilty, make a deal, and save the system the trouble? Geez. And it sickens me that drug offenders get MORE time than rapists and murderers. What's that all about?
from haloaskew :
I knew I'd learn to love a lawyer at some point in my life! :) Thanks!
from hollyfae :
Perhaps we could use that as a spin "make the gays marry eachother...that'll fix 'em!". I see another yard sign in the making.... love the artwork by the way! Especially the one that Suki and I refer to as the "electric anus" or anis whatever... we ALL know what's going on!
from dimstar :
Ok, I get dibs on your firstborn ;) I already have dibs on about five other peoples, but none of them are likely to give it up once it is born. So another wont help... The person who fixes that can have the $5.35
from nynaeve16 :
Thanks for reading my diary, and thanks for the note. You're right. I think I've been needing to pull away for a while now, it just took a while to come to the surface. "Men.. you can't live with 'em,...that's about it." -Emily
from haloaskew :
Coal Miner's Daughter: Man. I don't know what it IS about that movie, but I'm the same way. Floors me. I actually paid $20 for the soundtrack! That's love! The part where "Loretti" fumbles around with the tape deck in the fancy-pants RV after waking up from a drug-induced trance, and she's screaming out for Doo about what time it is, because she totally doesn't know, just KILLS me. I love the fact that they had a cup of drive-thru soda (complete with straw) on her bedside table at the time...Nice touch! And of course the whole scene where she finds out Patsy died...ohhhhhhhhhh..right after Patsy had given her the baby clothes? *SOOOBBBB* I actually live in Kentucky now, so I'm gonna need to take a road trip to Butcher Hollow (sp? who the hell can say?) You in?
from poolagirl :
OMG! The vagina entry made me bust a gut! You are just too funny! I have added you as a fave! The diary award link is on my right navigation bar - Diarist.Net award. Click on Entry. Mine is "Lingering Washcloths" at the bottom of the page. The voting link is at the top of the Entry listings. God! I am such a vote whore!
from ramble-on :
Well, if you enjoy wide open spaces and Wrangler butts, by all means jet on over to Wyoming. One of the local cowboy bars (there are only two) has the mechanical bull where they have the bikini bullriding about once every month or two. They slow the bull down just enough to give the women opportunity to...um...strut their mechanical bullriding abilities. Of course, the smaller the bikini, the better her "bullriding abilities" and the bigger boobs she has all help in her winning the contest. I've never tried it, I had a difficult enough time fully clothed, but my friend entered in every time.
from teacherlady2 :
Hi. For some reason I never got notified about the notes to my teacherlady journal. Yes, they are both me, LOL. Sorry for the confusion. As to how I get a dog and cat to cuddle up like that--it takes one dog who would just lie there during a nuclear bomb because she's so mellow and a cat that is obsessed with rubbing, loving, and feet. The cat is very tactile and rubs on everything!
from dooki :
Ciel Boutique? Heard of us? Anyway...1927 next to Ritual Body Tattoo and Linda's Antiques. May your aspirations to be like J-Lo commence at my store.
from xat :
Kudos for working in Huggy Bear and making some buckage. You rule and che brava! Now go enjoy a well-earned cigarette, and smack the crap out of any elevator incompetents. **!X.
from breathtaken1 :
ME??? Notso smart. Although I have been picking up a lot of info by trial and error. Haven't tried frames, but I did come across something which said how to do it somewhere!!! Sorry...yeah this is just a template, there are lots of them out there. The template maker is at the bottom where it says design. Most people's pages have that...you could click around and see who has something you like. Also, googling DIARYLAND TEMPLATES works and might turn up some ideas. Something I would try...find one with frames and see if you can pinch the code and try it in your diary. The blind leading the blind here, truly.
from geriatricman :
I thought your diary was neato.
from ssmega :
2/20, 17:42 David Sedaris, "Me Talk Pretty One Day". Just thought I'd mention it, given your noteworthy author list. ~Peace
from dooki :
Thanks for the add! And just how crazy are you 4 muffins? I mean, I'd kill a man for a poppy seed muffin...but that's just my cute little way. I want to know all about YOU. I started to read your diary and then I had to take a crap, so I stopped. Too soon?
from xat :
That entry is amazing. Thank you for writing it. *X.
from teacherlady2 :
I never realized you had the term "craft whore" in your profile. I've been using it since a crush of mine recently referred to my neighbor as a "crack whore." I liked the way it sounded and seemed appropriate for describing my relationship with crafting.
from teacherlady2 :
I just wanted to thank you again for answering my questions regarding your beadwork. I finished my first square and it's posted on my diary, if you're interested. It ain't perfect, but neither am I, so I consider it fitting :o)
from xat :
Well damn, there goes my 5-year plan. **X
from xat :
I don't believe in exercise. That's why I dance. It's more fun to say that you're going out to dance rather than you're going out to exercise. Dancing implies fun. Exercise implies grim regimentation, sweat, and butt floss Spandex. Eep!
from xat :
I feel your size 6 pain. At least I have the advantage of being taller (5'7") so there's not as much lower cuff adjustment necessary. However, finding clothing in general that's made for a (heaven forbid!) real woman's body; with, like, hips and an ass and boobs and a waistline; is almost a recreational impossibility. Argh. That's why I spend waaay too much time looking for vintage or European clothing in thrift shops. A girl can dream, neh? Bonne chance! **!X
from luvabeans :
hello, muffin. sorry to hear about the hair ... i feel your pain. thanks for the add!
from goldieknox03 :
i actually am all sorts of a breed. Scottish, english, dutch (i think). your ocd squares are cool. Let me know if you need more beads
from sunshine0221 :
Muffin! I love your journal too - and I have some serious dog envy. As a fellow beader - although I have not yet started an OCD square project - although if you run out of beads - I've got you covered because I have beadaholic issues - just let me know and I can fix you up. Did that make sense? It's Saturday. I'm at work, and not a cool badge job either - so that is my excuse for rambling - and I'm sticking to it.
from goldieknox03 :
no ive never heard that. I got called a russian once. But never german
from goldieknox03 :
so by "you both look german" do you mean " wow you guys are hot??
from bolt-bandit :
In reply to your most recent note to me: Go you good thing!
from spritopias :
& thanks for your note!
from spritopias :
I'm not diabetic, not yet. I am trying to stave it off.
from bolt-bandit :
Well... I would gladly make your site have a template... if you would just give me your password. But I don't think you would. I mean, people like to run away from me. I have no idea why. But anyway. If you *do* decide to give me your password, send it to: [email protected] You can change it afterwards, after I finish. So, here I am, just trying to be a nice person (for once). If you decide to decline, please tell me in such a manner in which those things inside me called 'feelings' do not get hurt along the way. Thankies! I know I'm weird. Bear with me.

I would be happy to oblige you in the area of the comments. However, the mother superior considers this a transgression of the most vile sort and has forbidden such frivolities.

from xat :
Thank you for the note. *beam* Unfortunately, the paper folder o' doom simply folds paper. Though I guess if you sacrifice a black goat at the dark of the moon, you might get some interesting effects. Probably involving mold and dust, or mugwort or something. Checked out your past entries. I have the same problem with shiny, glittery things. I enjoyed your myriad shades of blue glitter entry (with pictures, golly). Your life in the trenches of law rings a bell, my father was a Federal cop for many years. Oy. At any rate, thank you for linking--and I look forward to reading your adventures. **!X.
from breathtaken1 :
I am going to leave the html code here because I don't think it will do the linky thing here: <a href="URL">NAME</a> or for that exact entry you wanted to do, it would be <a href="http://crazy4muffin.diaryland.com/050106_93.html">LEON</a> Crossing fingers again...

Just got here from your notes at breathtaken's - can I just say I LOVE YOU too? Love, R xxx
from breathtaken1 :
I LOVE YOU!

I consulted my magic 8-ball and it looks like we were both French whores during WWII...nice to be back in touch after all these years.
from weymouth66 :
As a Brit, I can assure you there is no Princess Anne Claire in our laughable royal family. The TV programme must be a fake. Love your diary! Jess xx
from breathtaken1 :
Thanks for your nice note. I consider it a good day if I made someone laugh.
from gerg69 :
fiancee?? Oh dear, I.. I .. I ...I din't know ! SWEET!
from hissandtell :
Shit, you're naughty. I just saw your Lincoln banner. Do you have a whole series of them? "Other than that, Mrs Kennedy, how did you enjoy Dallas?" "Yes, but other than that, Mrs Trotsky, how did you enjoy Coyoacan?" "Other than that, Lady Mountbatten, how did you enjoy County Sligo?" Love, R xxx
from breathtaken1 :
I have clicked on your banner a couple of times now, and I think I will stay. I admire people who find the humor in everyday things. It keeps life interesting. Well done.
from hissandtell :
Oops. That would be "sensibilities".
from hissandtell :
The craptacularity continues! Just a thought: instead of stealing the lady-bending-over-with-bloomers, couldn't you, ah, deface her? Perhaps by inserting a large silicon object which, after all, is what those hideous affronts to decent folks' aesthetic sensibilites deserve? Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Well, goodness. I'm so glad I clicked on your banner, because I've had a ball reading your back entries. I particularly enjoyed the "Love is" Mary and Joseph characters, and the non-effort your neighbours managed to put into their craptacular string of Christmas lights. Oh, and I have to say that Muffin is absolutely delightful. In fact, she reminds me very much of my own pupling, who has a vaguely similar eye-patch and constellation of spots. I do look forward to reading more. Love, R xxx
from crazy4muffin :
I absolutely adore Muffin.
