from jaysthoughts :
Just checking to see how many diarylanders still actually check their notes and stay active.
from raven72d :
Glad you're still here. I'm quite taken by the entries.
from mainsqueeze :
These entries speak to me. I also balance two versions of myself. <3
from raven72d :
6 July 13--- lovely small entry.
from hthespy :
Something about Diaryland keeps me coming back...it is (or feels like) a secret place. Hope all is well <3
from katherinhand :
i feel like we're hiding out under a card table with an afghan draped over it. i miss diaryland so much. let's be 24 again.
from hthespy :
Thanks. Loved the story about boarding the airplane. I am happy for you about your baby.
from hthespy :
Hi dinosaurs!
from in-alaska :
i've been reading beginning to end and its taking me weeks, but they are weeks worth while and i wonder do you still exist?
from libraries :
neil young is my favorite, too. and i think you are great!
from weatethesea :
there's a book all about ancient family curses that is so great if you haven't read it already and want to: the brief wondrous life of oscar wao
from likepaper :
and then i was scrolling thru your older entries and you quoted a line from 'anne of green gables' and i thought 'kindred!' [hello.]
from doctorkaysen :
I said so first!
from hovercrafts :
please
from symmetries :
i hadn't. but i just googled it and it is funny. i sometimes suspect that everyone i know is from a movie.
from rahatloukoum :
um, hi.
from katherinhand :
ay. i thought your portland trip was coinciding with yolanda's party. i think i might go! budding friendship? but i hope to see you when you are here, even if it's on a corner somewhere. jamie the DJ. hmm.
from katherinhand :
pray tell, who was the DJ you speak of?? oh, stefanie. it was such a delightful night, although 90's themed dance-a-thons make me feel so damn old. maybe see you friday, hey?
from dinosaurorgy :
I agree that it clashes with some people.. but there's been the odd person I've seen that it looks really good on.
from dinosaurorgy :
I add you to the guest-posting list and it shows up at the top of your page when you go to add a regular entry.
from dinosaurorgy :
You don't really know me, but I've been reading your journal for a little while now. I hope you don't find it intrusive for me to ask if you'd like to join my little diaryland club (question-it); I think that it would be most interesting to see what sorts of questions you might have on your mind.
from whiskeyblood :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7a3ByQjDY4 that is all you will ever need.
from crestone :
what a frightening and disturbing ship experience. i am writing down "do not visit ship nurse" on my list of things not to do on the cruise. it appears alongside: do not get massage, do not eat croissants, do not "dance" in ship night club, do not take pictures with cruise staff. it grows longer each day. did your husband mention anything about scurvy? this is my current preoccupation.
from division-day :
re: slaughterhouse five. that totally made my morning. you have some amazing coworkers.
from katherinhand :
dear heart, but if you decide to fly the coop, job-wise, we could wear secretarial blouses in tandem and sit by side at matching typewriters! surrounded by woodland creatures and delicate teacups and heaps of inspiration and productivity!
from hovercrafts :
I'll try to hush up for a while. Honest.
from ohme-ohlife :
random greeting. hello gorgeous!
from themotion :
i'm singin. i'm hollerin. i'm always botherin.
from n-poledancer :
I just wanted to say hi and tell you that Im always reading and to say Im sorry and I (think I) understand how you feel. You write beautifully.
from division-day :
i like this: "i am always dressed in case you come over." i have been like that for a lot of people, and with those kinds of people, i could never tell them.
from hthespy :
that is totally nice of you to say (write) i always love your diary too.
from whiskeyblood :
The guts are repairing themselves. I never thought I would see the day when I got an "old-person" ailment. 28 and already avoiding red sauces and OJ. This is not what I had planned. Thank you for your concern, dear lady.
from novembre :
it was a boo sad. not a boo hiss or a boo scare. i send you loving and hope it isn't stormin' through your bedroom windows -- i still think of that story from time to time.
from dinoxcorn :
Hey you dont know me but i need frineds on here give me a not back soon
from novembre :
boo
from ohme-ohlife :
and, sorry, i'm some random person that saw your diary in the members area one day and decided to add you. hi. :]
from ohme-ohlife :
i'm locked now, so u: singsingsing p: prettylady.
from sleepystorm :
thank you. you completely managed to write about what i am feeling today. how's that work anyway?
from whiskeyblood :
The bible (my mother's; she insists on reading in my bed in the morning while I'm at work), Virginia Woolf's abridged writers diary, herbal stress tabs (they only work when taken with alcohol), mouse poo. Across the room? More of the same. You should bring your uniorn over and take me for a ride.
from slightly-off :
yes. and they have vocoders with varying levels of distortion for throats!
from whiskeyblood :
Odd. I just reread the basic 8 not too long ago. I shall look for adverbs immediately.
from whiskeyblood :
::wink:: ::kiss::
from recieveher :
why?
from recieveher :
heart.
from rahatloukoum :
i'm back i think. which you know, might be a good thing, might not be. xox
from likeaforest :
despite my wariness of 19th century american lit, i liked that last entry an awful lot.
from recieveher :
you are my favorite.
from hovercrafts :
You also have as much help as you want/will accept begrudgingly - on most every front.
from whiskeyblood :
I'm leaving Pittsburgh in three weeks..so..in that time you need to get out this way to your family so you and i may drink whiskey and dance to Madonna in my living room. Well...we'll start with the whiskey...perhaps we should just leave Madonna out of this? Hope you're well!
from whiskeyblood :
JN = leader of the lemmings. I used to truly enjoy her wacky off key stylings...but now...she makes me want to stab my ears open. More open, I guess.
from whiskeyblood :
OH SHIT! WE BOTH JUST USED THE WORD "SUBTEXT" TWINZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!! How are you lambchop?
from mainsqueeze :
you are my newest favorite diary-writing-girl. : ))
from softblossoms :
yes! "i like you." oh that book, oh hooray.
from vocalfern :
i named my mint plant diane arbus. i love that.
from recieveher :
shared sentiments on this end.
from paperbridges :
sad you're not here through the weekend! i would have liked to buy you a meal.
from paperbridges :
how long are you in town for?
from sleepystorm :
your mom sounds rad.
from weatethesea :
i had no idea the library of congress had a website. what good news!
from katherinhand :
i loooove it. we need to document our androgyn beauty via black and white photo booth. i'll start researching locations between your house and mine.
from vocalfern :
i saw animal collective in boston just recently! how did you like the show? love, bee
from vocalfern :
note me your email address, or email me at bmurabito@gmail.com, i will send you your username and password. <3 bee
from vocalfern :
i'm also polish and italian. <3
from sleepystorm :
yeah. '22.02.06 - 4:12 p.m.' x
from recieveher :
e-mail address?
from recieveher :
you are enjoyable.
from whiskeyblood :
(This note is late because I am retarded...as in a musical retard) I enjoy the fact that we were at odds during the superbowl. It will give us something to yell at one another about if you ever find your way to Western PA again. You know, something to burn down that odd internet awkwardness....FUCK YOU GO STEELERS tends to lighten any mood. FUCK YOU WE WERE ROBBED does too. ::sigh:: It's raining here.
from paperbridges :
re: throwing up: funny, i had what i'm guessing was a fifteen year stretch. i thought i had forgotten how, but put enough alcohol in a body, and it begins to remember. also, be drunk enough, and you won't even think it's a big deal. (until the next morning, anyway, when you realize that you got the remnants of vodka cranberry on your handmade halloween costume. bummer.)
from paperbridges :
i have been giving it such serious thought! i think it would surely seal the deal if i could find some folks who wanted to live with me here: http://portland.craigslist.org/apa/132520092.html.
from katherinhand :
madam, for the record i have been thinking a lot about you as destination for traveling and even struck up a conversation with my co-worker/best ladyfriend in portland re: a road trip to your town. her sis lives there, too! in other news: i absolutely hate the present state of my hairdo and look forward to chopping it all off so that i can suitably bear the devil's child in a roman polansky movie. a small price to pay to havew a nice haircut.
from yours-4-ever :
i just stumbled across your diary a few weeks ago. and i noticed the one about asbury seminary. i go to asbury college and i thought it random that someone outside of wilmore, ky knew about us.
from sleepystorm :
sorry to sound nerdy, but that sounds like a great film. i mean, one of the best desserts, and one of my favorite hobbies. brilliant. x
from sleepystorm :
i love when jeff mangum sings that. // x
from paperbridges :
a right swell penpal he must be!
from paperbridges :
christ. isn't it so hard not to be in love with j.s. foer? ever gosh darned thing he does is so beguiling. i've been recently catching up on my "nonrequired reading" and his story about punctuation! extraunxclamations! holy bejeezus i would convert for him, i surely would.
from katherinhand :
pardon, but i happen to think jeanne moreau is beauuutiful. just! like! you!
from whiskeyblood :
Dancing! YES! Can we slow dance to some Neil Young? That last song on On The Beach...it's not really a slow dancing song, but I slow dance with my girl cat to it all the time...But fast dancing must be had for happiness as well! Jitterbug? Foxtrot?
from novembre :
april sounds good. i am hoping to come to portlandia for my springy break, but i don't know if i'll have to work or not. hopefully hopefully not. yes.
from novembre :
hello, i missed you. i've been in the black hole known as grad school and haven't been keeping up with anything not swept into its vortex. hello, i missed you so much!
from hovercrafts :
I am. I did.
from whiskeyblood :
Oh lordy. If you visit the relatives in Beaver I hopes you don't mind coming down here for that drink...Last time I was in Beaver I got lost and saw a dead dear with a bear trap on it's leg. I was also stoned, so that may have had something to do with it. But yes! It is a must! Drinks for EVERYONE!
from whiskeyblood :
Trust me. No matter what mischief I get myself into, there is never anger involved. Only scenes. As for your most recent of entries...I think msgs like that are the new SARS. I get 2 or 3 a day. Usually saying "Please shut up I can't hear" because they're yammering and I'm trying to watch Six Feet Under. I say if they really cared, they'd let me play Salinger and await my return in the spring. Of course my dreams never come true.
from hose-clamp :
that baby cracks me the fuck up. right on.
from whiskeyblood :
I assure you that the only lack of decorum I would ever have would involve you as well and thus the negative would be negated! So where do I sign. Also. Re: Elka. WHERE IS THAT CRAZY GIRL! I have left her several msgs and hardly ever hear back from her!
from whiskeyblood :
BUT BUT BUT....what if I've been reading you for over two years and went crazy well before our DL "partnership" ever happened? WHAT THEN!? I really should leave you more notes...but I never have anything more to say than "I really enjoyed reading that entry" over and over. So. Yah. <3
from katherinhand :
awright. i am going to take a good long look at my calendar and we will begin serious planning. oh. so awesome. i am very excited at the thought.
from katherinhand :
where are you, cuz? are you back in washington? for some reason i thought of you traveling during the month of october. soon we will have to plan an elaborate tea party or some such. i am willing and able for the excursion.
from laemmle :
I haven't but I will definitely check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.
from katherinhand :
(thank you very much for the cat love sent in my direction. i am working on a shrine and was slinking around the hardwoods this morning try to capture her hair in vials. creepy? absolutely. and i wouldn't have it any other way.)
from thebetween :
but what i find appealing is that, by assumption, it seems like if there are half-truths here in the plane of 1s and 0s, then there must be also be half-truths in the plane of trees and people. and they would doubtedly be the same halves. unless you are more like me, then we're talking thirds and quarters... so it's different, but is it negatively different? + isn't their some sort of eloquence possible here so difficult to create in actual interactions?
from thebetween :
oh no! i just meant that certain entries referred to one person, and the others to another. so that, depending on which entry, i would either be in love, or be disinterested!
from thebetween :
i suppose that would depend on which entries you are referring to.
from laemmle :
I really like your latest entry..
from rahatloukoum :
you are my favorite. what would i do without your being born?
from katherinhand :
good heavens. i honestly would be eLATed to drive five hours in the name of you and party dresses (i LOVE party dresses. AND i love driving long distances! in party dresses, preferably! the compliments you receive from old gentlemen while perusing the candy aisles of service stations!) , but i am going to a wedding in california this weekend!!! blast it all. could we please reschedule, seriously? could we please wear party dresses, even if it's unwarranted?
from katherinhand :
duuude, 25 is great! it is only 5 squared, which is quite special in my book. i wish you the happiest of birthdays. please don't fall or get caught in a cave at high tide. much love, j.a.h.
from katherinhand :
re: j. march. she made such an impression on me, too, growing up, and i just realized i really need to read it again to see what it feels like from a grown-up perspective. isn't it the saddest sometimes, outgrowing characters? i do it every summer with franny glass. she gets younger and younger.
from hose-clamp :
dear dinosaurs. my grandparents live in bellingham. that makes you cool. sincerely, hose-clamp
from missy-17 :
hey how ya doin, saw yo pic you seem cool!!!!
from thebetween :
oh, i totally stood corrected. but, being in the piney desert mountains, my humble apology was obscured by a sketchy treeline and small outcrop of rock. for being so blind, i mailed something off to you on friday, but the postal's so slow, so slow...
from thebetween :
you made that part about the name up. totally. you phony. - chiarella
from breadisdead :
oh noes! may i come in?
from katherinhand :
my dear lady, i had a dream about you last night while camping in the gifford pinchot forest! i did! the dream (not even exaggerating. it's that ENCHANTING!!) : you and i both lived along a river, and you had a red gingerbread-y house surrounded by tombstones (charming, i assure you.) and i had a brown wood-y house i shared with my sister, and we could canoe along the river back and forth to each other's houses. it was the dreamiest cutest thing. AND it gets better: i believe we were in a girl band and were very popular in the schools for girls circuit. wow.
from longitude :
dearest dinosaurs: i think you are fantastic. i'd make you a mixtape anyday. hugs.
from novembre :
why are you sad? i send you fluffy hugs.
from katherinhand :
re: almost coincidental show: i thought of you, actually. they also played in anacortes and vancouver, i think, and i kept trying to figure out distances and changing probabilities for a dinosaur sighting. man.
from longitude :
re: father's day entry - i love your sunglasses. xxo
from likeaforest :
you're actually making a quilt yourself? gosh.
from longitude :
i'm adding you. i need good reads.
from katherinhand :
darlin. i owe you at three notes/emails, but my mouth/typing fingers have been sewn shut/together. i'm having quite a time getting situated, i think. however: real life hang out is such a possible option now! we will have to organize something in the near future. x.x.o.o.
from hthespy :
i think this coincidence is so funny and weird! the dude house where i emptied my keeper was a total "bro" dude house, where there's like a beer-amid (like a pyramid, with beer cans---WHY?!?) at the end of the night, and there were backwards baseball caps. it was like a whole other planet. so funny!!!
from likeaforest :
passing out while driving??
from snoballfight :
if you want me to tackle him, run off with his honorary degree, white-out his name and replace it with yours, and then send it to you, just give me the go-ahead. unless that's not what you were implying, of course.
from chiarella :
yeah, but brown university also handed out an m.f.a. to diane thiel. i've used toilet paper that's harder to earn than a degree from brown. christ, if brown likes a person's writing, it's like a really rich hitler digging on someone's nail polish, like george w. bush loving your curtains.
from pollytrotsky :
that really, really does sound a lot better.
from novembre :
it's a fucking deal.
from novembre :
i always have quite a lot of faith in people, especially my friends, and it is so hard when i am let down.
from novembre :
yep.
from novembre :
i miss you and wish we were neighbors.
from chiarella :
glad you liked. also, if you would like a volume (or several) of braille books, i've got a big box of them at my grandparents'. they were salvaged from a library and i got them free from a recycling place that gives things to art organizations and non-profits. i'd be glad to ship some.
from likeaforest :
psst. still eagerly awaiting pictures. hint hint.
from likeaforest :
yes, emailing them would be lovely! jlbraun at ucdavis dot edu.
from likeaforest :
do you think you may ever be persuaded to post pictures of these dioramas, sometime? if so, i'd like to see them.
from chiarella :
is your mail.addy the same as when you sent the polaroids to me? finally finished the promised dvd, even though i wasn't able to complete the part of the project you participated in. maybe i can finish it once school is through with me.
from hthespy :
hello, i have been thinking about how your author friends handwriting reminds me so much of my lady artist friends handwriting: www.makeitawesome.com do you think so? your diary is always so lovely. xo,mr
from likeaforest :
these entries are making me so awfully nosey! how did you meet mr. foer, and what did you send him?
from vocalfern :
i hope you do not mind-- i emailed him to tell him how much i appreciate him.
from vocalfern :
i love him. i love him i love him. how do you know him?
from pollytrotsky :
i really liked that entry. thats all. i just really did.
from novembre :
HAVING A COKE WITH YOU IS MY FAVORITE POEM IN THE WHOLE GODDANG WORLD HOW DID YOU KNOW IF YOU WEREN'T ALREADY MARRIED I'D PROPOSE RIGHT NOW OOOOOOH
from novembre :
i know exactly who you're talking about and no i don't remember her name, either, darnit. but i just noticed that you list frank on your profile and hot dog if that doesn't make me the happiest bird. he's my favorite writer (poet or non) in the world.
from rahatloukoum :
how did i become so inadequately represented in your diaryland notes? and no camera? one day, we will live in the same town and when that happens again you will simply have to call me over and i will bring breakfast so long as you eat it without fixing your hair. (still missing you).
from novembre :
oh i love that one. mama bear.
from katherinhand :
i am one ardent astrid fan. it was so exciting to see you in the real life.
from whiskeyblood :
how could you not be grossed out with that wacky Elka "yaying" all over your shoulder!?! And I concur...that is one pack of pretty girls!
from novembre :
by the way, you are effin' beautiful.
from novembre :
if i can somehow get into APE for free i will buy one of everything you have to sell because i looked on your site and it all looks absolutely beautiful even the boy shirts i'd just get them in a small size so they fit ok this is a run on sentence because i've been sad and commiserating with my friend cassie over whiskey at an irish pub all night i miss you yes canoe and hugs. oh run on sentence. oh run on sense.
from chiarella :
i just read a farewell to arms again. i so want to canoe. sorry i cannot make it.
from refusal :
Thanks for favouriting me. My name seems to be showing up on your buddy list now (but who knows what is going on in Diaryland's depths?) Your diary seems interesting and I like your terse style, so I will definitely be reading more of you.
from katherinhand :
i am in training for top drinking/dancing shape. elka! you with me?
from katherinhand :
i am glad you are my comrade in ward brothers. i haven't seen the new york part!! it is something to look froward to. i think i may have to drop everything right now and watch it, actually. in other news, dear miss saurs, it dawned on me i may very well be in much closer proximity to you soon. washington - oregon = fathomable distance as opposed to washington - californee, correct? daisy buchanan funfest may be upon us, i can only hope.
from novembre :
sweet. wanna play tetherball?
from crateobscure :
Because someone must stand up against the forces of evil. Sadly, for the Universe, that person seems to be me.
from opopopo :
Dear Dino, You are positively lovely. There is no doubt in my mind that you are delightful. Also, spackling portraits treat the yard in gravely refurnished lanterns.
from chiarella :
i see a green light
from chiarella :
i see a green light
from chiarella :
as happy as your invitation makes me, i am most likely entirely unable to accept it. the costs wouldn't be bad, and escaping ohio through intense weekend of air travel would be exciting, but i am still reserving my travel funds for possible apartment hunting and neighborhood investigating, pending notification from grad. schools. arg.
from n-poledancer :
I just found you and added your diary to my list cause I like it. Thought I'd say hi. Is that your e-shop linked up as my sweet shop? I love this stuff. Very nice.
from novembre :
hello. and now *i* am bored at work. i am being so nonsensical that everyone here thinks i am INSANE. and yet i can't shut up. jesus. please come over here and we can hug.
from pollytrotsky :
i like you(r diary)
from novembre :
(i think my favorite note is the one you left critiquing all of my notes. so this is a note about a note about a note.)
from novembre :
oh. PS! ----> YAY DEERHOOF!
from novembre :
oh you are the best ever. i will send you a swift reply regarding the story tonight. permed looking bangs. i have a weird feathered mullet, that is how you'll find me. oh, and we should take a canoe ride. come on. please?
from katherinhand :
sitting here, folding hands, awaiting signal.
from katherinhand :
yessssss. we will have to take a gondola around lake merritt and dress up like daisy buchanan. i will alert miss novembre!
from katherinhand :
i am in berkeley! aren't you in san diego? i have a sneaking suspicion we are like two ships in the night, for i have spent much time in s.d. and i get the feeling you have spent much time up here. curious!
from katherinhand :
1. the entry about the three old men and the poodle and the prostate-plagued deer brought me to tears, honestly. god bless the old men. 2. i like you so very much.
from novembre :
oh, send to mythicalbeasts@gmail.com, that is the email address that i have the people that i want to hug use. and i always want to hug you.
from novembre :
yes yes and more yes. just as long as you give me a copy when it's done. oh wow, pretty vellum covers!
from rahatloukoum :
i miss you a lot. i know you're not a phone person but i'm calling you soon.
from chiarella :
i never received enough polaroids to make the scrapbook to go with my thesis. i will still be making the booklets with poems and dvd, but was waiting until after the exhibit closed (which was this past friday). hopefully i'll be making and mailing things out in the coming weeks.
from chiarella :
excellently excellent new layout: hooray!
from pornoviolent :
TRAGIC LOVE STORY OMG!!
from novembre :
oh good, because it's a draft of the first page of an artists book i'm writing & letterpress printing this month. you get a copy. i haven't had time to make the print with your wedding entry text yet, but i still want to, i wonder when i'll be able to. this book project is taking up all my hours.
from musikfrk92 :
thank u 4 the note! yeah i have heard of her but i never really read her books. i tried to check one out of the library but when i came back they were all gone! o well i can live 4 the next couple o 67 yrs.lol. thx anyways!
from musikfrk92 :
lemony sniket rocks! hey do ya like stephen king? i like ur diary
from rahatloukoum :
TOTALLY.
from orangepeeler :
yeah, i've done that plenty of time--call/email people when i'm drunk. . . but i get over my embarrassment quick. as long as i don't hurt people, i think of it as being somewhat beneficial. i get to connect to people, explode in a way they haven't seen, let them know i'm thinking about them and why.
from katherinhand :
and. i am so very sorry and i wish i could think of something better to say than that.
from katherinhand :
o i just adore you. i do.
from rahatloukoum :
how romantic, i hope so too. xox.
from novembre :
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
from novembre :
oh, i read that too. actually, the hamlet stanza is really hard for me to stomach because on my worse days it kindof describes me, but not in a good light. my favourite parts are the beginning and the end of the poem. those mermaids, let us go.
from jinkymarvels :
what a little world of crazy stories. ok, i will keep these facts in mind should i rub shoulders with the all-mighty singing talent mr. crow. tks for the goods!
from jinkymarvels :
ok. i am quite intrigued, and being earnest is my specialty... but give me some of the back-story if you can!
from jinkymarvels :
k. what's the favor re: pinback?
from ammo-dots :
You've perked up my interest with your film-related eBay purchase. Where do you intend to use these?
from the-n-side :
i heart the way you write.
from novembre :
ha, i like it. very good. i want to take something from you, too: what you wrote about weddings making strange bedfellows. i want to make a letterpress broadside and use that text. i'll quote you. is this ok? email me at enlweber at yahoo dot com and tell me. and of course you'd get a copy of the broadside. it'll have an etching printed underneath the text, real artsy fartsy like.
from hthespy :
did i tell you allready about how i locked my diary and you can come in with username: polarpolar and password: bear? from m.r.
from chiarella :
the scarf sounds very nice indeed, and such a surprise would be more than pleasant. i mean, i know as many writers as i do boys of jewish heritage, but neither of those qualities seem they would affect appreciation of a scarf either way. my only concern would be the weather of the recipient, and even if he lives in a tropical clime or desert terrain, the scarf would bring with it not so much an immediate usefulness as it would a powerful nostalgia for travel in winter and a subtle inkling toward meeting many strangers. i think so, anyway. and three questions on needlework, if i may: 1) would you say crocheting or knitting would be more appropriate to the making of a largish throw or blanket? 2) would it be possible for you to estimate (in days or hours) how long it would take a person unfamiliar with the craft (yet familiar with other forms of domestic art, such as cross-stitching) to learn the art and create a successful piece?
from chiarella :
thanks for the crossing, though i found out today that, in spite of my having not been awarded the fellowship, i have been endowed with a one-year subscription of poetry. i share it with you in spirit (plus when it starts coming i can send you transcripts of the good poems.)
from cdghost :
your words are beautiful
from project-kit :
i've missed you. you should start project-KITing. i'm inviting you. i hope to see you soon. xox.
from novembre :
I HAVE DONE THAT EXACT SAME THING! leaving the responses in the wrong places. hence, i take it as a SIGN that our co-vacationing is destined to happen someday.
from dinosaurs :
uh. i meant to leave that on elkas notes, not my own. what a dunce.
from dinosaurs :
if i were driving and not flying id be there
from novembre :
can't. freaked out about crowds. went to too many crowded places with out of town friends last weekend. want to stay inside and nurse nerves and work on art projects and make fart noises on the cat's stomach instead. you come over. i'll be here.
from vocalfern :
hey. i've started reading your diary <3 bee
from novembre :
my brother lives in italy now. i can make him put us up, feed us, and show us around rome. (i hold some sway, acting the needy younger sister now and then) either that, or we could just go on an aimless road trip and eat at as many diners as possible. i love that. but i'm easy.
from rahatloukoum :
thanks lovely. xo
from chiarella :
(shhhh...coated = # 70B4F2 & uncoated = # 549FEB)
from novembre :
good, teach me how to properly market myself in applicable arenas.
from novembre :
HANDMADE UNDERWEAR. will be the title of my book. that way, you will receive royalties and business references, and all will be square.
from chiarella :
silly me, finally figuring out what pantone 292 could mean, only to go to the book with brain sideways, tearing out the coated and uncoated two-six-twos and thinking "but why purple, not blue?" so much for memory. (i haven't missed you, but only because i kept peeking, even while i wasn't writing.)
from novembre :
it's a deal, missy.
from novembre :
promise?
from rahatloukoum :
got what?
from hthespy :
dear dinosaurs, your new entry is one of the most beautiful things i have ever read. it really is so good. your friend, m.r.

from novembre :
you are pretty much climbing closer to my list of "all time favorite people" whenever you leave me a note about flirting. if i had money i'd set you up with your own institution and you could school the less fortunate on the finer intricacies of flirting arts.
from novembre :
i think i am an unconscious flirter. not that i flirt while sleeping, but that i do not realize i actually can and am flirting. there are powers in these here waters i never waded through.
from novembre :
that is true. and i will admit that i like the ambiguousness as well. but don't tell anyone, especially those i've written about.
from novembre :
wow, that last note sounded like i was hitting on you. har har.
from novembre :
i haven't told you in a while how much i like you. i like you. did you get the valentine in the mail? mailed it late, because i am never on time.
from novembre :
ha ha! our entries match. i did not see yours until just now.
from teanlemons :
thank you. if you give me your e-mail address, or something of that sort, i'm sure i could find an extra key for you. but be forewarned, it's dull and sparse.
from novembre :
i wish you were an arm's length away. i think my life would be better if this was true.
from chiarella :
the six included witticism, rant, mope, anecdote, day-recall. the last i have forgotten. you are now 100%, too, since the other person quit using the diary. the categories were quite arbitrary, obviously, and it would be pretty easy to fall inbetween. but i think you're the only person relating past events in a story-telling manner.
from chiarella :
There are six distinct categories for online diary entries. You are 50% of one of them. Thank our lucky shoelaces for calmy clever people.
from overtaken :
Oh my. I'm happy to have stumbled on rhatloukoum's diary, and then yours through that same path. Your entries feel like homecoming without the popularity contest.
from rahatloukoum :
the marriage entry was refreshing and satisfying somehow. i don't really know why. see you soon.
from novembre :
i love the entry about the zoo. the things that used to separate us.
from rahatloukoum :
i called your mobile. all i got was a 'greetings.' no crying, no cats. call me back! i miss you.
from nudibranch :
awww thanks stef. you're the best.
from rahatloukoum :
you're adorable. xo
from novembre :
oooh. go to sheepiekins.diaryland.com and tell muffie that you're a friend of mine and that you're wonderful and give her a link to your diaryland page so she can read your pretty words and then you will have a great portlandian friend!!!!!! but wait, should i wait to mail you your letter/small package until after you move? because i'm slow.
from sundayshoes :
yes, you may have a password. i will send you an e-mail with it. !
from novembre :
so hi. so i have a new email, enlweber@yahoo.com, and perhaps you could email me your physical address so i could send you some mail one day. so hi.
from rahatloukoum :
p.s. nice parent trap move sister.
from rahatloukoum :
i wasn't drunk, i really meant "and" and shinning. as in to shin. its a mockery of a sexist archetype, because i'm a genius. you just didn't get it. :) hi.
from nudibranch :
ha! marry trash? where did that come from??
from muh-wuh :
Which note? I don't think she was. She does like to mix up "and" and "in" apparently. And why do I hate you? I'm so confused.
from muh-wuh :
Which note? I don't think she was. She does like to mix up "and" and "in" apparently. And why do I hate you? I'm so confused.
from rahatloukoum :
getting ditched by sisters and best friends. needing you. hee.
from rahatloukoum :
you're the cutest. i love picturing your childhood. probably because it was so much different and smarter than mine.
from rahatloukoum :
i just posted a note in response in my OWN profile. goddamn. its one of those days.
from rahatloukoum :
haha. i thought you were suggesting 1. pavement: slanted, and 2. enchanted boxybox. whoops.
from rahatloukoum :
enchanted boxybox sounds like code for snatch. therefore, i'll look into it. mirah and dear nora are playing at ucla on thursday or friday. i'd kidnap you to it for some cheering up if it were at all plausible. withallmyheart, xo.
from novembre :
thanks. you're my buddy.
from paperbridges :
oh, your little entries are like snowflakes. i want to catch them on my tongue.
from muh-wuh :
I don't like you crying, and I don't want you to cry. Vacation always gets over, but reality is fun too. And friends here will hang out whenever, but are just busy with school and new jobs, and sometimes spend too much time on this machine too. But you should make the phone your friend, and I will be over anytime you want, and us and the kitties will have a cheer up party.
from agentm- :
is what right?
from agentm- :
oh do i love your diary.
from muh-wuh :
Why am I adorable dammit? You're not answering, and its not every day I get a compliment like that, and dagnabit, I wanna know!
from novembre :
i WANT to see pictures!!!!
from muh-wuh :
Why am I adorable? Not that I won't gladly accept adorability.
from novembre :
a beautiful bride you will be.
from muh-wuh :
I wasn't hating the game... I was definitely hating the players.
from rahatloukoum :
i'd call but its 11:45pm and i don't want to wake anyone up. sorry you're dad's being sucky. i love you.
from rahatloukoum :
fuck, it must have started before i was watching. shame i missed that one, you perv.
from rahatloukoum :
giiiirl, you're hot stuff.
from novembre :
my mother sings the praises of potato soup. you might be on the other side of food-love than me; the side i want to live on. you know its secret inner-workings. peppermint tea you dried yourself? that is mystical to me. i like tastes and textures and ovens and cupboards but my oven is broken and my refrigerator is quarter-filled with: one half-full gallon container of one percent milk, a box of otter pops, ketchup and four take-out boxes. there are things i need to learn. for instance, a broiler. take the broiler for instance. if you put asparagus in there, sprinkled with lemon and olive oil and pepper, it comes out tender like some sort of juicy thing that surprizes me. o, to cook. i'm a slow learner, astrid.
from novembre :
oh, we are, we are. no doubt in my mind.
from novembre :
you're the only one besides me that i know who can identify music played in dreams.
from novembre :
sometimes it makes me sad when i read your diary and realize i'd much rather know you in person; that to me you seem like someone who would learn how to crochet with me, and possibly go to farmer's markets, taking photographs of the shiniest vegetables.
from chiarella :
Her name was Astrid. American, and the Germans got her. Don't build any bombs, you.
from paper-crane :
when time has no meaning i search the streets for treasures and sing out loud...thank you.
from ciara2 :
really like your journal. i really love that movie joan of arc makes ya think. leave me a note k.
from when :
Dude, I fucken love Jacques Brel. I also really like your journal. But grilled veggies? Eating just one is always accompanied by bouts of nausea. Pisser.
from rahatloukoum :
chillin for sure. i read your last few diaries and got worried. matt reassured me you were fine. but i don't know, it seemed worrysome. and its not that i always know exactly what your entries are about (i don't), but i guess i felt like i missed something big. just sayin. just so you know. i worry about you sometimes. (in a good way). see you soon.
from chiarella :
can charisma reach through monitors, drawn to words writ dot by dot? kiss this distance with a rock and roll tune; clap hands clamp lips message bottle out to you.
from panzer-kitty :
I just read your replies to my survey, and there’s no such thing as playing scrabble too much..
from rahatloukoum :
i got twelve. boo.
from novembre :
linus is the coolest to me; i found solace in a blanket much like his as a kid. (my father made me throw it away.) and he seems to have some sort of pathic connection to snoopy that the others miss, just by a little, in that strange emotional way. and the way he would wander around searching out birds to pat on the head. that threw me.
from rahatloukoum :
you don't know about the bangs like I DON'T KNOW ABOUT BANGS, TARA, or like i'm skipping the bangs part and going straight to instyle.com? god. listen to me. i think i decided i'd look real weird. but for reals, anyway. hearts.
from rahatloukoum :
i'm glad you liked them. hearts.
from novembre :
man that latest entry = pretty.
from novembre :
what was written in caps was what they said to me. but i can't understand eating ugly soup in order to feel better about my body. it is too perplexing.
from novembre :
i was passed that diet soup recipe in high school by some over-eager relatives. EAT ONLY THIS FOR A MONTH AND YOU WILL LOSE WEIGHT. YOU WILL.
from nudibranch :
I forgot that I wanted to tell you how very much I loved your historiasz entry. I was totally picturing this grotesquely exaggerated version of your story too...its like each time it is told it gets worse. Which is funny. Lots of love. :)
from nudibranch :
ha...if by making a move, you mean a dance move...as in a dance party...then yes! i am. i might even show you some cutie lil nudi-branchs. watch out now!
from nudibranch :
thanks lots :) and lots of love. p.s. I hear you are coming to visit soon. wink, wink.
from rahatloukoum :
boy, do i like you. + your diary. heartshearts.
from novembre :
hi. i constantly love your diary. which is more than i can say for many things.
from muh-wuh :
I didnt even know you have arial, I just like the way arial looks when its small.
from shutupmom :
BOO.
from novembre :
the hills in san francisco are too bike-able. you just have melons living inside of your calves.
from novembre :
damn, i LOVE your diary. it made me happy. even the name. hi.
from novembre :
damn, i LOVE your diary. it made me happy. even the name. hi.
from rahatloukoum :
i feel creepy for reading other peoples notes to you. anyway, yeah. freezing time = hell yeah. we should rewrite that show.
from aspirin :
sorry for late response. i may have been riding my bike! yay. every bike rack reminds me of dinosaurs, and diaryland and your diary. is c3po really that lame? i feel like a sheepish robot now.
from fuschia :
are the T measurements for the cat treats tablespoons or teaspoons? my cat is licking my hand as i type so i guess that's a good sign. thanks for joining my tea-love ring.. :)
from radiodiary :
in other words, you are wonderful. and you're already taken. sigh.
from radiodiary :
it would seem the wonderfuls are all taken.
from seymourglass :
"Yay!" for Belle and Sebastian and "Yay!" for Jonathan. I drove from Texas to see them in San Francisco. Your diary is pretty and culinary.
from playground :
paint your own pottery places are very cool. they take care of the hard parts for you. you just let your creativity run wild. love your diary.
