from candoor :
if you are still here, i cannot see... i am rarely here, but here tonight because the word dandy popped up on my screen and i thought of you... warmly... thanks for the smile you inspired... hope all is well :)
from crayon :
The time gets away. I remember when we first started... communicating? I guess?... and you said I reminded you of Jack Johnson's Bubble Toes (was that the song?) and now... I can't even imagine. Haunts is a good word. She does, and it's ridiculous and sad of me, really almost pathetic sometimes. But the thing is, with Kelly, with the settling... it may have been settling. But I was content with it. Email me, if you can, I'd like to talk with you again. I'm not sure if I've got the right email for you or not.
from candoor :
drifting in for however long it lasts, i stopped by to say hi, send love, wish well, and smile atcha... not sure what's going on in your world, but hope it's all, or at least mostly good :)
from azzweepay :
You started it! You'll take it and like it if you know what's good for you.
from azzweepay :
Upon rereading the previous note, I'm baffled about it's meaning as well. Let me know if you can decipher it.
from azzweepay :
The crawl-stagger is something you do after a firsthand encounter with a real pork tornado. And before you go there, the stagger-crawl is what you do after a secondhand encounter with a pork tornado. A pork tornado encounter of the third kind leaves you dreaming of ghosts, pencil sharpeners and manta rays. (and a giant mock-up of a pork tornado in your living room)
from twoturtles :
I've been NOT instructed to be bug the living crap out of you until you re-open Soap-land. Hyph-en. Hy-phen. If you get around to it... that would be swell. Now if Smash could just politely remove the gun from my head, I'll just wander away sheepishly. :)
from twoturtles :
You could have made that rhyme. You need to embrace your inner Seuss. I didn't even think about the gold membership bit, but that makes sense.
from twoturtles :
I know, we would have had a permanent wing in detention, I'm sure. Let's see what kind of trouble comes from this thing. Also, on the "users online right now" list, your name is bold. That rocks for you!
from twoturtles :
Did you notice that our entries don't show up on the recently updated list? I sent an email to tech support. Remember the trouble that got us into last time you sent a request? LOL!
from mommylap :
I guess it's measly, but it's approximately (according to google results at everyipod.com) 500 songs, and 4G is 1000. I don't think I would ever need all the music I own on my ipod at once anyway, but my Dad said he likes to have all his music all at once on his MP3 player. I believe Smed is of similar desire, but I am cool with it mostly living on my computer. I do love the ipod, and would even moreso if I could play it through my car stereo, but you need a cassette for that and I don't have it.
from twoturtles :
If you could see me now, I'd be pointing at my nose. If you get around to it, read The Philosophy of Composition. It's online here so try googling it. At one point, Poe talks about how he doesn't approve of symbolism, but later, he refers to the raven as a symbol for "Mournful and Never-ending Remembrance"... So, which is it? The world *dramatic pause* may never know.
from mommylap :
Seriously we should create a manifuckingfesto event, even if the only people who play are the three of us. It should be like a meme only each new manifuckingfesto is so amazing that it inspires the next one, and when you write yours you backwards tag so the person who inspired yours can link you. It'd be this amazing internet cobweb of manifuckingfestos. It'd be cooler than Lollapalooza..
from stepfordtart :
Yeh. Youre right. I DO do it all. You just missed out the bit where I do it all really really badly and then fall over. : ) s x

Hello! I'm Natalie, from Florida. I commented a few times on your entries and really enjoyed your witty journal, and was quite disappointed you locked it :(. I was hoping maybe you'd reopen, but such has not happened! I understand the privacy issue though. If you feel comfortable enough, I'd love to be able to read your entries again. krazycow76@hotmail.com. Thanks for your time!! :-D
from acornotravez :
I know you don't know me, but I added you a coupla weeks ago, and I just now noticed you locked up...can I have a key? I suppose you could email me at acornotravez@hotmail.com It's a Saturday night, I guess that's alright... -Acorn
from nakedbarista :
Aww, I finally write an entry and you've gone and locked up. : (
from f-i-n :
hihihi from miami
from azzweepay :
So is the semester over? Did you live? Did you pass? Can Dandy fans around the world erupt in a spontaneous, unprompted, yet seemingly choreographed banana dance?
from azzweepay :
Thanks! That's about as close to bitchy as I get. Nice teaser with the coffee. Too bad there wasn't a way to dangle a cheeseburger in front of my face. ;^)
from goddesskiki :
I won't leaving you waiting! I have the patience of a goldfish (if I'm having a good day) so I think it's mean to make people wait. I just got my acceptance letter from MSU for their Student Affairs Admin graduate program. As of today I'm officially a Spartan and I couldn't be more excited!
from stepfordtart :
Haloscan fucked my comments once AGAIN, but Im here to say I HEAR YOU on the 'made from scratch' thing (but you knew that already!). much love, and Happy Easter, s x
from azzweepay :
Congratulations on your progress so far! Remember these days as on day YOU will be the grizzled veteran dealing with the newbies.
from moonfaeryy :
The monitors we have uses strips that need just a little bit of blood, and there is a solution, but I don't know when that gets used. I'm not technically inclined when it comes to that stuff!
from heydomsar :
yeah, 12% Beer is a group blog that showcases talented (funny) writers. There's a certain group that has permission to post excerpts of stuff from their real blogs. I go there and see funny lines and click them to read the full entries. But on April Fools (the day I linked), all the bloggers were posting excerpts from OTHER blogs, not their own. So you'd see their names and a line from some other blog that they liked, (ie. mine!) and then the link took you to that blog. Little confusing. But I thought it was cool that someone picked a quote from me. All the 12% Beer contributors are like famous in diaryland land.
from stepfordtart :
Not offended in the slightest. Just letting you know that I know what those places are like. BFs dad is OK, but some of the poor souls there.....well, its hard to say what would be kinder. s x
from smedindy :
I signed the petition too!
from nakedbarista :
To my knowledge, we have four people on the petition, but since it's circulating in bulletin form, I don't know how far it's gotten. Ask Vicki, I think she has everyone on her buddy list, LOL.
from nakedbarista :
I miss you. I'm starting a petition for you to come back to myspace.
from nakedbarista :
Don't run from it! EMBRACE being a girl! : )
from nakedbarista :
Sorry. I deleted the entry right after you posted. I just decided that I've spent all of this time keeping her out of my diary, there's no reason to bring her in now that she's gone. I agree with everything you said and I'm glad you "got" what was going on. I gave up telling her what she wanted to hear a long time ago. Now that I tell her what she needs to hear, I have realized that she doesn't want change, she wants sympathy. To quote a fantastic movie- "If you want my sympathy, you'll find it in the dictionary between 'shit' and 'syphilis'."
from heydomsar :
S'ok Dandy. I'm back but KungFuKitten is still planning on posting tomorrow, so if you still wanted to post, I could leave it open. Otherwise you've got a spot next time. :)
from heydomsar :
Yeah, whenever you like is fine. People seem to wait till the end so you might get stepped on if you do too. Otherwise, no rules! :)
from heydomsar :
I'm off to Canada on business until Thursday, so I'm turning my diary over to a couple guest posters, if you feel like it. Optional assignment: "My favorite teenage/adolescent moment." Have fun!
from moonfaeryy :
Hit me up with your time of birth, and where you were born. I'll work on it in my spare time! frogstar14@yahoo.com Hope you are doing well, and haven't had any really nasty cases so far! I have a few more I can tell you about sometime!
from janetplnetoc :
93 degrees in February is like living in a foreign country -- one south of the Equator. And then today, 65. That's a California winter. One week of summer-like heat, then a week of winter chill. Of course, our winter chills rarely get below the high 40's, but the chaos of the ups and downs is hard on the body believe it or not. But 11 degrees and 26 degrees below zero and the phenomenally cold temps the east coast and midwest have been experiencing are like horror movies for me. I'd hide out in a room with 30 space heaters, electric blankets and many hot toddies. My props to all of you for surviving.
from tiaris :
Psst, does your d-land e-mail work? The nest is locked. If not, drop a line at beltwaybelle on yahoo, eh?
from mommylap :
Yeah, notice I didn't mention the retarded drama a fend of ours was involved in directly, but that kind of stuff is gross. I can't give up myspace because it's the best way to get in touch with legalbeagle, who is terrible with answering the phone and e-mails unfortunately. Funny, I would tell you the content of my deleted post via myspace if you were there anymore. Maybe you should e-mail me! mommylap@gmail.com
from nakedbarista :
I tried to leave you a comment here about chin hair and got a stupid error message. Basically, it said that I want to let mine grow out so I can look like Chef Morimoto from Iron Chef. It was much funnier the first time.
from wifemotherme :
Thank you so much for the note! You really hit the nail on the head. I was so busy being baffled at my emotional reaction I completely missed the obvious. Your right.... "Most likely because there's nothing in the world more important to me than being a mother." Thanks I missed the forest for the trees on that one, I feel a whole lot better now. (and a bit silly for missing the obvious)

KY Jelly is for people who NEED it. Durex Play is for those who dont. KY Jelly has unpleasantly 'medical' connotations, Durex Play is for fun. No doctor's gonna squirt Durex Play over a speculum. Ever. s x

from janetplnetoc :
I didn't know we were supposed to blog AFTER we got the CD, I jsut thought we were supposed to grovel IN our blog to GET the CD. I guess I'll be doing some sort of the same blogging when I receive mine. Can I just copy and paste yours?
from media1001 :
I forgot to ask you. Did you ever read "The Death of Ivan Ilyich" when you were digesting all of those Russian author? Very short, but very powerful book. -- Ploppy.

Men are like calculus. The sooner we know it's hopeless to even TRY to understand, the sooner we can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the benefits - WITHOUT the work ;)
from patw-21 :
i think i might be seeing double
from rebeckajane :
Thank you girl and same to you. I think there's an unspoken thing between sole mums/moms, don't you think? ;o) and even sole dads of which I see more and more of these days. Oh wait, I think there's an unspoken thing with any parent! Have a wonderful weekend, hugs from across the puddle.
from nakedbarista :
It was just some crazy exercize. It's supposed to be going on all week. Hopefully today is the only day they'll pull this madness. Imagine recalling every Marine on the base and then searching every car that comes on base. It was insane.
from patw-21 :
*HUG
from rebeckajane :
Tee hee..it doesn't creep me out..it's just weird when you're not used to it, it would be weirder if he were actually looking right at me instead of down because then it would be like those pictures in the shops and so on where the eyes seem to follow you as you walk. Now that, would creep me out! ..Loved the entry on the toy in the fridge handle..kinda reminds me of this household :)
from wildrosie :
You know, I discovered long ago that children are not hard-of-hearing. However, they are ALL hard of listening!
from nakedbarista :
I went ahead and deleted that entry because another piece of the puzzle was given to me at church and it gave me a very clear view of what I am to do. It is a case of "doing the right thing the RIGHT way." I might update on how that goes or I might not. I don't want to offend people who aren't actually involved in the situation, ya know? About the evaluation, though, almost everything was spot on for me. Discernment is a curse more than a gift, in my opinion. No one listens. No matter HOW I go about the situation, I'm labeled as a judgemental person, or a trouble-maker or just a flat our meddler. Kyle tends to see me as being controlling, since I, more often than not, can't back up anything I feel. It's "just" a feeling, but I've learned in all of my 26 years that my "just" a feeling is perfectly adequate. But that doesn't mean it's the same for other people. I just get ignored or written off, and then when things come out the exact way I had warned, people stand around and wonder "Gosh, what just happened? I in NO way brought that on myself", etc. Curse. I've just learned to keep my mouth shut, even when people ask my opinion. No one really wants to know. I'm better off keeping it to myself and finding a way to deal with the pain of watching people self-destruct.
from nakedbarista :
I'm still here, I'll meet you in chat!
from nakedbarista :
Are you still on? Is anyone else on? Do you wanna meet up in the chat room for a bit?

Too thick? naww... If anything, I feel a little giggly that he thinks we have the power to start a conspiracy. Lil' ol' us? *blushes*
from nakedbarista :
You did let him know I was kidding, right? I gave him the password to get in just in case he was afraid I was staging a mutany. LOL! Andrew... EMAILED ME?! *shakes head and chuckles*
from janetplnetoc :
I want you to give the possum a try AND get pregnant with triplets (because they both sound rather exciting), but I do not want you to jump off of a cliff. And I see nothing wrong with possum friendship. I wish to befriend a squirrel but they just usually grab my nuts and run (she says thankful that she is a girl and the nuts are literally nuts).
from sparkspark :
XOXO! I look forward to reading through your archives, Ms. D. XO Violet
from nakedbarista :
You can blog in my blog in my comments any time, hahaha. I appreciate your insight. You're absolutely right that I should have taken a break and come back to it. I think what frustrated me was that it was the second to last word of the book and she could see that. She was THISCLOSE to being done and just would not put forth the effort to get it done and over with. But, hindsight and all that. I knew that I'd calm down shortly after writing that entry. Kyle and I tend to play "good cop/bad cop" with the kids. When one is visibly on the edge, the other steps in. He did that yesterday and I thanked him for it when he came home last night.
from nakedbarista :
Well, then we'll just have to agree that we're both super cool and leave the "who is cooler" argument for someone else. We're just the Queens of Cool. The template I have up now isn't the one I had up when I wrote the entry. I had a red background with a blue font and white accents... it was just bad. Now that I've changed it up a bit, I think I like it too. I'll know in a few days, though. I'm excited to see whatever new template you pick. I think of templates like make up-- fun to play with! : )
from media1001 :
Oh, and I don't think your ideas were out of context -- I think you were right on with how you interpreted my opinions on the subject. For example, that story about the black and brown painting being a commentary on 9/11, is another example of what I would find frustrating. I know it is supposed to be abstract, but even the highest levels of abstraction should have some sort of connection to the baseline source from which the abstraction originated. If the artist tells you what the painting is suppose to represent, and you still can't see the connection between the medium and the idea, emotion, or experience, to me that's a communication problem. I understand there are artist who do art just for themselves, but if there is no external connection, why realize the concepts in a medium as opposed to just brooding in their own internal worlds? See what reading "Heart of Darkness" did to me? I have no tolerance for introspective work anymore :). -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Sorry, I mean "Through A Glass Darkly". :). -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Feel free to take what I say in or out of context. I *want* people to talk to me and challenge what I talk about on the site. Frankly, writing a blog with so much opinion in it tends to make the content egocentric if I don't get some other opinions into the mix. I can tell you one thing though, I'm not a big fan of Ingmar Bergman. I just finished watching "In A Glass Darkly" and I didn't like it much better than "Wild Strawberries". Have you seen any of his films? Am I missing something? Why do the critics love him so much? -- Ploppy.
from moonfaeryy :
Hahaha...pretty much nothing is inappropriate for me...so leave silly comments all you want!
from moonfaeryy :
I think that if someday you visit Frankenmuth, you can still be considered a Michigander! Thanks for the add by the way!
from nakedbarista :
Don't worry, honey. I'm totally broke too.
from tiaris :
Would you believe my bleepin' firewall wouldn't let me leave a comment because the word "MySpace" must be in someone's comment therein? OY! Anyway, I don't use my real last name there because I don't necessarily want people from high school and college finding me, and I especially don't want potential employers finding me. I mean, they might, but it won't be easy. Great entry, today, chica! Hmmm, I'll have to leave you something sparkly when I get home. Heh.
from media1001 :
Yeah, I thing I will hangonto my stereotypes. Sure they are ignorant, cruel and often incorrect, but they certain make life a lot more simple, doncha think? The Idiot and C&P (as I like to call it, because I am hip) are both in the 1001 book, and, yeah, I just assumed they were big. Actually, I think I even read C&P in high school and I *still* remembered it as huge. So you see what an impact War and Peace really had on everyone. Not as a great novel, but as a very large mass of paper. -- Ploppy.
from media1001 :
Don't Russian people write huge books? I don't know if I can handle any 1000+ page books right now :). -- Ploppy.
from candoor :
I hope the vacation was at last partly a vacation for you... being one who could use a vacation very much, I was thinking that being there to help, even with the challenges you started out with, would be great for me (see how much I need a vacation? :)
from plopphizz :
Are you HannahSolo on myspace?
from nakedbarista :
I don't think I'd remember it at all if it weren't for documenting it. I have a horrible memory as it is, so if it doesn't go into a diary, it's forgotten in about a month. I try really hard not to go back and read, though. It really hurts to relive the things I've been through. Especially with Kyle.
from nakedbarista :
Yeeeeah... I'm glad to have gotten away from the baggage that came with my older diaries, but lemme tell ya... If you were to read them now, you'd never know I wrote them. And you'd probably want to snatch Kyle bald-headed for some of the stuff he did early on in our marriage. No one's perfect, but dang... he wasn't even trying. It's a total night and day difference between us now.
from mommylap :
I sort of believe that there should be a desk in every room in the house if at all possible. A desk and a place to read.
from breatheasigh :
happy mothers day :)
from seasons79 :
Hey Dandy, thanks for the note! I'd love to have you as a reader.
from harri3tspy :
Yes, that's the one. Iceman by Brenda Fowler.
from davidish :
I haven't seen your feet recently. They aren't grounded, are they?
from nakedbarista :
If it weren't for the fact that Robin is naturally a very social, well-adjusted child, I'd have more reservations about homeschooling. I have absolutely no fear that she will have enough social interaction, which is the number one fear of homeschooling. I think that if we decided to put her back in school, it would be a breeze. She's just a great kid that way. Now, if it were Ginger... I dunno. She's not as social as Robin is. Thank goodness I had them in this order.
from nakedbarista :
That is so hilarious!! I would have come here and been like "Is she talking to me?" I know, the messages are crazy!! At least MySpace is out of the mix for me now. Between email, myjankyspace and D-land, I'm confused enough!
from nakedbarista :
P.S. The song completely suits Kyle. Right down to the volcano part and everything. *smiles innocently*
from nakedbarista :
While I was at it, I downloaded "Supernova" by Liz Phair. You guys are killing me with all of this talk of songs.
from nakedbarista :
I swear, you couldn't possibly be any cooler. You're, like, the pinnacle of coolness.
from nakedbarista :
I... justboughtitonitunes.... *sob* I love being an American!! I truly do!! I just like this song too! : (
from nakedbarista :
Oh, not to mention the anti-military undertones. I SO need to be reminded how easily my husband could be brought home in a box. Nope. Not something I think about every time I close my eyes. Why does that song have to be so damn good with such crappy lyrics?
from nakedbarista :
I LOVE "16 Military Wives". I just have a hard time getting past the Anti-American message. I feel like a traitor. Maybe if I can find a version with no lyrics... 'cept for "La di da di da didadidadida"
from nakedbarista :
I'd love another cup! Thank you!
from quoted :
A quote from Quoted would probably be redundant, since it is on Quoted already :), but I am curious what quote you wanted to use. -- Ploppy.
from vickithecute :
BWAH! The scavenger hunt is SO back on! (Except, so far, I haven't been all that creative in finding hiding places. I'm going to have to branch out)
from plopphizz :
I thought the entry was funny at the time I wrote it, but then it just seemed twisted and sad, so I pulled it. -- Ploppy.
from mommylap :
You never would ever have to apologize for reading my diary -I love that you do! You're maybe my favorite other mom I read actually.
from stepfordtart :
Oh! deal deal deal and THEN some! s x (AND Ive been to Ireland! and Mexico. and most of Europe. and (bizarrely) Gulf Shores AL.) Have a good day. s x
from plopphizz :
Where the heck are you lady? -- Ploppy.
from serenaville :
Sistah, I could think of few things I'd rather do more, than sling back a few with you! We really, seriously SHOULD plan for that. We'd have a ripper! Why the heck not, yeah? Life is fleeting, and I'd love to meet my George. :) *HUGS!!!*
from plopphizz :
I'm not familiar with this "joke" concept you are referring to, but I do know this...you totally LUUUUV him...you want to marry him and have, like, ten thousand of his babies! -- Ploppy
from plopphizz :
Topher Grace?
from nakedbarista :
Go there, by the way. I left you something!
from nakedbarista :
I'm so laughing out loud right now. I'm going to wake up the girls!! MyJankySpace!!
from serenaville :
Sis, you are the best! Thank you so, so much for supporting Erianne and her sister. It means a deal to me. Gods, but I am glad I found your diary! How did I get so lucky?? *HUGS!!!!*
from nakedbarista :
Woohoo for coffee! I tried the whole "don't make eye contact and they won't charge you" thing and it didn't work. We averaged some form of communication every several days. FROM her, of course. At this point, I don't give a flip. Everything gets deleted. People get hung up on. People get hosed down by the fire extinguisher... I'm done with it. They'll learn to go away one way or another!!
from hubbyman :
So are you going to be grandma, mamaw, nana, or mamie? Happy Tuesday.
from nakedbarista :
I totally forgot about the coffee swap, hahaha. Doh.
from crayon :
She's absolutely perfect.
from candoor :
you are missed, adorable one (just thought you might like to know :)
from ariza :
I'm leaving a message b/c Candor told me to, haha.
from stepfordtart :
Guess it would help if I'd seen, like, ANY of those films! Hee hee, Im SO out of the loop. Have a good weekend, whatever you do. s x
from stepfordtart :
Your dates are FINE - you've got nothing to worry about, although I can appreciate why you might be slightly 'off the boil' at the moment! You still didnt tell me who that Vaughn dude is, tho. Should I know him? s x
from hubbyman :
Yo Dandy! Happy Valentines and Tuesday!
from vickithecute :
arnica cream, huh? Can one get this from Wal Mart?
from hissandtell :
Hello, and thanks so much for the note at my place. I keep seeing your name on my buddies' buddies' lists, have just read a dozen of your older entries and intend to check out more of your excellent writing as soon as I can. Be bad, darling: be very bad. Love, R xxx
from vickithecute :
Oh yah, it's simple, just hook the red thingamajig up to the red nub and then the black thingamajig up to the roof or something like that then flip the switch and start the car. Just watch out for sparks. Hee!
from nakedbarista :
I was teasing about the template, LOL. It's was more poking fun about not actually being on Stepford Tart's buddy list, but that kinda blew up. About the date, yeah, heeheee.... Fill in the blanks... *wink* And now you've got the Mission Impossible theme song stuck in MY head! I'm gonna be darting around the house all day, up against the wall, shooting hair bands at the cats! SQUEEEE!
from nakedbarista :
Happy Tuesday, Dandy! And yay for no more birthdays!!
from hubbyman :
I'm gld that I re-read the lower part of your entry. I SWEAR you said "boobage". Sorry, I'm a guy. Anyway, Happy Tuesday and if you want to give Gabe a hair cut, may I suggest a high and tight. Thast the Jar Head military cut heh heh.
from nakedbarista :
I read The Mermaid Chair last Summer, so I've been wanting to read The Secret Life of Bees. I think that might be my next book. : )
from smedindy :
Done did it - well - sort of. Look in my archives for "32 teams, 32 ways to be wrong in early September..." It's my professional pic. I have another professional pic taken soon.
from guilty-heart :
My sassy glassy is up!
from nakedbarista :
It's onsundayafternoon@gmail.com : ) But I'll get it no matter which you send it to.
from nakedbarista :
I'd be happy to help you out with an entry. Just let me know how you want it to go down, and I'll get right on it.
from hubbyman :
Happy Tuesday!!!!!! If you are unfamiliar with the Happy Tuesdays then refer to Nikki's diary. :)
from smedindy :
The list means that you should expect some rockin' tunes comin' your way.
from smedindy :
You are on my list! Is there any music you despise or loathe? Let me know...
from hubbyman :
Nikki and I have robes that have lasted us 5 1/2 years. They are getting a little grubby and the belts are missing but they are special, so I kow the feeling. Oh, you and your kids are AWESOME artists. I can't do stuff like that.
from stepfordtart :
Hi dandy, thanks for adding me! Any friend of Smash......etc etc. Glad to find out Im not the only skanky robe wearer in the world! (PS my nan used to call them house-coats, too) s x
from mommylap :
Well, I like singing all of them, but the look of amazement my sisters had when they forced picked me to sang "Time After Time" when I admiittedly didn't even know the words was super awesome because I got a platinum score. I don't have any real classic oldies, not ones that make me feel reverent and wonderful to sing (the way Preacher Man would)but I listen to waaaay too much Radio Disney in my car, so I can rock pretty much any Hilary Duff song.
from nakedbarista :
It was a look of "unbe-effing-lievable. Is it a full moon or something??"
from hubbyman :
Thank you for adding me. I shall do the same and make it a point to keep up wih your diary. Again, thank you.
from workcrush :
Yeah, that was me, but thanks for letting me know. I decided to unlock because I'm a major attention whore, but I blocked my work IP and Patrick's IP. He works from home although I know he does have an office he goes to sometimes, I'm hoping that he doesn't use office time to surf the internet. And based on what I know of him, he doesn't. It's a calculated risk.
from smedindy :
A season pass means that TiVo will automatically record every episode of a show on a particular channel, and you just have to set it once.
from nakedbarista :
Nope, not at all!! : D After I read your entry, it got me thinking about how it might look to others who read my diary, all this stuff with Veronica. I just thought I'd address it to snuff any snickering that's coming down the pike.
from nakedbarista :
LOL!! The "finally" comes from her being completely transparent- acting like nothing at all is going on, but at the same time, sending me naked pictures of herself. If you go back a handful of entries, there's a link to the first time V shows up in my diary, but I don't actually say it's her. She's the one Amber was with. I guess it is kinda soapy, LOL! As The Cappuccino Brews...

After Pet Sounds, the later stuff is really introspective and has a lot of unique arrangement and great harmonies. No Fun Fun Fun, really. Good stuff, until Mike Love became even more of an idiot.
from candoor :
Merry Happy New Year and make it your best year ever :)
from candoor :
I suppose I should have mentioned that I was referring to my comment and my sorta goofy way of asking without asking about the photo, among other all-in-fun silly-mood comments :)
from candoor :
I really am a golfball, ummm, goofball, huh?
from karmacops :
a good omen indeed! the same thing happened last week to the peace lily I once bought my sister...It finally bloomed after a floral absence for the past few years... may 2006 be a bloomer for you... :)
from serenaville :
Wow! Thank you for nominating me for the HoHoQuotes in Quoted!! I saw you mention something about the 'Quote God' in a comment, but had no clue what/whom it referred to, and good-naturedly shrugged. Heh. I am honored, my dear... sister? ...Cousin? Something. ;) *HUGS!!*
from smedindy :
And how old were you? I didn't mean to cast aspersions (much, but I was trying to bring the funny). I just remember me at 17 and some of the kids I meet on a daily basis around here.
from beltwaybelle :
Vaccines with non-active virus just get your immune system going. The immune system doesn't realize the virus isn't active. Then, when an active version of the same virus comes along, the immune system is already geared to take it out like the Terminator, and does. And get this: it's controversial whether viruses are ever even alive. They can't reproduce without a host, but they affect the host nonetheless. Interesting stuff.
from serenaville :
Oh, wow... thank you so much, for adding Serenaville to your faves/buddy list! The investment of your time as a regular reader is appreciated, and never taken for granted. (Guess I should update, then, huh? ;) ) Welcome to 'The Posse'... You'll be a 'Citizen', as soon as I overhaul my list. Thanks again! -Serena
from plopphizz :
Everything is fine. I haven't felt like writing since I messed up my layout, so I locked it. Just taking a break, thanks for writing. -- P.P.
from beltwaybelle :
Did I ever send you that password to the private folder? Or am I having one of those brainburps?
from nakedbarista :
If you can get past the poor spelling and scattered thoughts, I don't think he'd mind if you read. : ) He wrote his last entry in a bit of a hurry so that he had something up when he made his template.
from vickithecute :
GASP! I've got a stalker! Oh me oh my oh woe oh angst, what shall I do, what shall I dooooooooo?????
from smedindy :
I guess I'm a John guy. The 40's swing thing was cool on When I'm 64, I guess. And it took them SIX DAYS and countless takes to do Ob-La-Di and John basically wanted to behead Paul after it was overwith. But it's not to say it's horrid, I just prefer John's work on that record.
from beltwaybelle :
Awww, sorry that petri dish made you squirm. I picked that up from a friend of mine who works in daycare. They say it at my job, too (along with "vectors"). But I forget not everyone appreciates the warped humor. Point is that kids naturally pick up a lot of illnesses because they don't have immunity to them. And that's a good thing, because that's how they *build* their immunity. I never did understand this whole fascination with antimicrobial everything. Drop me a note or a line if you'd like the password to the private folder.
from vickithecute :
Oh heck, if it actually came down to me having to make a decision between the two of them and being hopelessly TORN, I probably would leave it up to a poll. So keep your eyes peeled. Heh
from vickithecute :
Actually, there is some intereactive fun to be had. But I moved it to a private entry. Go to my private archives (I think you have the password already, it's the same as what I used for the pink one). You'll know immediately which one it is.
from plopphizz :
I say 90% of good writing is being a good observer and presenting things that others do, and say, in an entertaining way. If you had not picked up on those great quotes from the kids and written about it here, they would have been forever lost. Now, there are a bunch of people who got to read and enjoy them -- or at the very least, I laughed my butt off after I read it -- so enjoy the recognition -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Congrats, you have been Quoted: http://quoted.diaryland.com/dogday.html. Thanks for the great writing. -- Ploppy.
from smashthegas :
My entry was SOOOO not obscene. Well, maybe just a bit... but you know, I got soul and I'm bad... MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA...oh smash xxx
from smedindy :
All hail! Anyone who knows one of my all time favorite songs deserves a laurel, and hearty handshake! Oo-rah!
from plopphizz :
Thanks for the kind words. The holiday season has certainly put you in an appreciative mood :). I see mommylap found you, that's good, I knew she would like your stuff. I guess I try to be an original, although the very act of stating that I am trying to be original makes me unoriginal. So, yeah...kinda stuck in some sort of paradox here...anyway, keep up the great writing. -- P.P.
from mommylap :
So yeah ploppy told me about reading you, and then I forgot to. But THEN, I read your funny comment in Kathy's comments, asking if she had large breastes and I laughed thinking- that Hannah, she's funny, and then I see I'm on your freaking buddy list and I look into your refrigerator and I laugh. I like you.
from smedindy :
Thanks! And howdy right back at ya!
from gothique :
Six?!?! Color me impressed. You are one tough woman. :o)
from plopphizz :
You rock my blog world. Your last week's entries were so great. I'm suggesting you to mommylap, my all time fan and great writer. You probably will both realize I am an ass, but it is worth it to see female genius unite. Luv your work, P.P.
from gothique :
Okay, now I have to ask...just how many kiddies have thou?
from smashthegas :
Thanks for your kind words, dandydudette. It was cool to speak about him, you know. And maybe it's something I kept to myself for too long. In return I loved your entry about your family. Made me want to delve into my own fam's history. Keep rockin' dandy, you're cool. Smash xxx
from plopphizz :
See, you have to stop using phrases like "free drugs", "horny housewives" and "penis enlargement" when you leave comments for me. Actually, it is probably one specific word you used that the spam filter caught and puked up. The challenge is finding the word. -- P.P.
from smashthegas :
hey dandydandy, dunno how i ended up at your diary, I think it was some random clicking on things and ended up at your page scenario, but you write beautifully. I hope you don't mind that I added you as a fave. Keep rockin', babe! smash xxx
from wifemotherme :
PS From your first entry here -If you don't mind me asking, why does Megan have quasi-celebrity status?
from wifemotherme :
Just wanted to leave you a note to let you know the stalkerish stats you will see today were from me. I was a tad bit hesitant to read since the picture posted looked like someone I knew, but could not put my finger on. I had to laugh when I read the note below that said you looked like Reese Witherspoon.. Bingo. So I read on.
from nakedbarista :
Oh, and a little trivia for you... Samhain is pronounced "Sowwen". I've never understood Gaelic pronunciations.
from nakedbarista :
See, it's a sign! I JUST bought a big bottle of H&S for Kyle last night. Thanks for the tip! I never would have thought to use that! (I do feel a little stupid though, because I spent a butt-load of money on shampoo and conditioner 'specially for red hair. I'm taking that crap back and getting a pedicure instead) I'll get on that picture thing. Check back in about an hour.
from gothique :
A Samhain ritual is a celebration of the season and a tribute to dead ancestors. It includes the casting of a circle, communion with the Goddess and God, prayer, songs and seasonal dishes. BTW - I thought I recognised you from the picture on your journal, like maybe we'd met before. Then I realized we haven't - the reason you seemed familiar was because you look like Reese Witherspoon.
from uridium15 :
ween, even.
from uridium15 :
AS PER YOUR BANNER, YOU OWE ME AN EXPLANATION OF WHAT YOUR PROBLEM IS... also, happy halloweeb.
from dunkin86 :
I'm actually not sure how I managed to stumble upon your diary but I'm way too intrigued not to ad you to my buddy list.
from plopphizz :
Just send your kids to my latest entry, the charlie brown one. That should mess them up enough that they will never ask the tough questions again. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Thanks for doing the survey. Sorry I didn't drop you a note sooner. I've been getting home from work pretty late. How are you doing? -- P.P.
from theswordsman :
Thanks for the effort. I really did just wake up at six Saturday morning with questions in my head. I probably should have had a glass of water or something before I did the survey. A lot of people got confused about the favorite feature one - I meant which of your features is your favorite. I hope you come back to visit. Take care. John
from theswordsman :
Shoot. I let you off the hook for a minor offence of stalking before I convinced you to take my survey. Bye. John
from theswordsman :
Hi Hannah. I was wondering who the Michigan person was. Not out of fear or anything, but with the banner a lot of people are passing through and probably not even making it past the survey link. It's nice when someone bothers to turn a page or two. Welcome. And thanks for the note. John
from plopphizz :
Is that a picture of you on the bike in the corner? I think its a bike, like one of those older models with the long handles? Maybe I am wrong. -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
You said "Somehow my FIL..." in the last note. What's a FIL? -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Glad you liked the story. Good luck on the house. What is 'barriers analysis'? You said this is your third diary? What were the other two adn why did you quit them? Have you ever checked out HaloScan for putting comments on your entries? That way I could post meaningless questions and drivel on an entry-by-entry basis. -- P.P.
from dandydandy :
Well drat it all. I thought my prof. was just trying to be a pain dredging up some archaic abbreviations 'cuz I couldn't find gtt ANYwhere in the text. And the grandma story? Beats mine hands down with extra fingers. Wow.
from plopphizz :
Yes, they do use gtt when appropriate. I guess all those funky abbreviations come from Latin. That's a great entry about your grandma. My grandma was quite a bit stranger than your grandma, I think. You can read about her in http://plopphizz.diaryland.com/grandma_cup.html -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
Wow, an entire entry as a response...cool enough ;). I'm a pharmacist in Washington State as well. Well, I was a pharmacist, then a healthcare admin, then I did computer programming and now I am a temp pharmacist and a contract developer. That's a verbose way of saying I have no ability to seriously commit to any of my career choices I guess :). -- P.P.
from plopphizz :
What degree are you getting? I saw a mention of pharmacology. Something in healthcare? -- P.P.
from qjan :
Yay, a sane person in the world of chaos, the eye of the tornado. Rock on!
