Merry Christmas from across the pond to the inimitable Discodave.

happy birthday for just then xxx
from acornotravez :
Happy Birthday!
from argentum :
Congratulations on five long years of cantankerous, colorful rants. And memes. And Dr. Who discussion. And...
from dearedwin :
should i come back here? i've just never bonded with LJ. it's not pretty and yellow, you know. i have thoughts. i do.
from awittykitty :
I definitely would have predicted a few missing limbs to a cranky gator for Steve Irwin.
from spazs :
Cause marzipan is delicious!
from inkysoso :
Love that book link, cheers
from acornotravez :
Yes, definitely the second version of angel delight. Maybe you could make that one first, then try the original again, yes!
from spazs :
Awww, don´t remind me of Madonna! She´s sooooooooooooooooo OLD, why did they not do the courageous thing and keep Kate Moss?? THAT would have been COOL. Madonna is SO freakin over!!!!!!!! I really have to barf when I see her. I know, you had another point. Hehe, sorry, just love to "share". (babble)
from non-fuckabl :
Do you think Tom Chaplin is kinda cute? I think he is.
from non-fuckabl :
The bubble wrap is SILLY!
from acornotravez :
google maps is amazing.
from argentum :
Might I suggest "On The Road" by Jack Kerouac as appropo for the list of geographically symmetrical vacation reading?
from argentum :
My condolences.
from idiot-milk :
The problem with BBC America is that they're several years behind the current programming. And whenever they show a "new" series, it's all out of order. They only aired the last four episodes of the first Green Wing series, and those they showed backwards. Highly frustrating, as you might imagine. If I hadn't found the torrent for the full series, I would have been forced to start a campaign of very sternly worded letters. BBC America is clearly run by jerks who revel in teasing and abusing their viewers.
from kungfukitten :
I was reading your blog thinking at 29 degrees sounds lovely, then I realized that you probably meant celsius - so I had to look that up...84 degrees. Here's it 100, which would be 37.7777777 degrees. My point is, it's hot and I feel your pain!
from pablo :
disco, more from pablo soon - just deciding what to do - nothing to see there but a few personal boring noters to myself, but you'll be first in the list to know when I move on. prob not up this year - one year fallow to come back next time with renewed energy/drinking capacity, but let you kinow if it changes, mate. P
from argentum :
That's a confession of sorts, Dave, that you keep that on your IPOD. I'm still a loser, though for many varied reasons.
from argentum :
9) Walk Like an Egytian by The Bangles. Holy SHIT am I a loser for knowing that. But they were hot...back in the day.
from acornotravez :
I'm more of a lincoln-logs type girl, if you must ask.
from argolam :
When you see a bunch of pale people of European origin sustaining a culture in some remote land, while the native folk are kept behind a wall, that’s colonialism. That rule applies everywhere (not counting America, where the wall is replaced with a casino.)
from acornotravez :
It's actually really scary how long Dick's been around - 30 years. Him and his buddy Donald...whoa.
from acornotravez :
Yeah, it was frickin' brutal! You said it, mon. I've never seen that many red flags in my life!
from argolam :
Hey, I’m the last person who’ll knock colonialism. I’m all for exploiting indigenous cultures everywhere. I’ll have you know that every now and then a few people demonstrate in front of the presidential mansion in Jerusalem demanding to restore the British Mandate of 1917. I never join them, mainly because I’m lazy. But whenever I drive by, I always wave to the freaks. And let’s not forget that Israel has some colonial characteristics of its own (but we rarely mention it).
from argolam :
You were rooting for Portugal and not Angola? Shame on you. Isn’t it enough that Portugal got to rape that country for about a century?
from argolam :
It’s not only during the Eurovision, but also in sports. Half of the Asian countries won’t play with us so we’ve turned into that awkward kid on the playground who always gets picked last. Luckily the great European nations solved this problem by saying, “What, Iran and Afghanistan won’t play with you? Those bullies. Now take this ball and go play with Lichtenstein. We’re sure an 8-0 victory will help you feel better about yourself.”
from argentum :
I woulda' picked you for C3P0, bud. Be happy.
from pfirsich :
Nooooo! You don´t like Han Solo cause he´s a scoundrel,you like him cause he makes you feel safe!! Cause when it matters he always sticks up and saves you and stuff and knows how to fly the space ship and is cool and casual!
from pfirsich :
Brainless? Was that going against ME? So,do you think smoking is evil? I´m intrigued. Sorry,now I odn´t know how to spell that word.Oh,I got it right.
from argolam :
Damn you, Dave! Was it really necessary to post a link to an online risk game? Don’t you know your readers (or at least some of them) are brainless and susceptible to any influence? Now you’ve got me playing a few games.
from pfirsich :
What,I liked the finger thing.I was like:oh,could it be the truth? You know,you being left handed....drool....heh
from dullthud :
That's a mighty fistful of culture. The best I've managed in that time is Forbidden Planet and the Museum of Scotland, the latter only to use the bogs. But Brewer: an age ago I picked up a tatty Wordsworth reprint of the 1894 edition, and it is by some distance the most spare-time-sapping book ever published. I love the peppering of little donnish asides that were presumably hilarious to his cobwebby mates but wholly opaque today.
from pfirsich :
Yes,"wait".wait(!)
from argolam :
I’m sorry but it’s not enough to just take those people aside. They should be sent to Siberia for “rehabilitation” like in the good old days.
from plopphizz :
Congrats, you have been Quoted: http://quoted.diaryland.com/goodwriters.html. Thanks for the great writing. -- Ploppy.
from argentum :
5 is nirvana, heart shaped box. I think 17 is rammstien, du hast.
from befuddled21 :
15 is The Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter....one of my favorite songs.
from argentum :
No Dave, I don't remember when you used to be almost an intellectual.
from argentum :
I always spell doughnuts with the ugh. I've noticed some do not, but not all. I blame the spirit-crushing american public school system.
from awittykitty :
I've always thought it would be cool to create a full color poster of the alphabet with various photos of street grafitti letters. That would be "good grafitti"
from argentum :
My condolences.
from vanoonoo :
I think the term is "happy release". have a great party for him :)
from vanoonoo :
bless ya - good thoughts chick x
from acornotravez :
I watched/tried-to-pay-attention-to W's speech, and I was really shocked when he said the US was addicted to oil and he wanted to have an alternative fuel plan going in the next 6 years. I share your cynicism, sadly.
from dharmabum :
belatedly -- but, congrats on the new bebe!
from pfirsich :
Oh,at least he didn´t make women FUCK apes.I thought that was coming.----Hey,Sting´s dick looks AWESOME in that suit,hats off!
from nictate :
and what a fine uncle you'll be. high-five!
from vanoonoo :
oh - a belated awwww :D
from glass-arcade :
awww congrats!
from vanoonoo :
CBB CBB CBB CBB CBB CBB - yay! I am finding it jaw droppingly hilarious. feed me your thoughts.
from awittykitty :
sex actually kind of ultimately enhanced Clinton's reputation, don't you think? Does Bush even have sex? He always looks constipated, like when his wife gets horny, he probably goes into some kind of angsty John Wayne overdrive and wants to bomb some new country rather than have to "perform" his husbandly duties.
from vanoonoo :
you're NOT going to gabble about CBB? pah. *sulk* *deletes from love list* *grumble*. kidding. x ;) I was in glasgow on the weekend! did ya hear me hoooooooooowl?
from pablo :
Have a snazzy zoob, mate. See you in august, as per usual. Predictive sex all round! Cheers, P.
from atavist :
intrigued ... abandoned car? collapsing building? ;)
from atavist :
thanks and stuff. hope the new year is all good points for you. x
from almostgoldsf :
have a very happy new years.
from solarlab :
the company of wolves is a cult favorite around here... as for you being a miserable bugger, no. i worked straight through the holidaze. stayed home the whole time except for a brief excursion to see king kong. (holy special fx!)and since i can't deal with most people, especially drunk ones, i am heading out to death valley for new years. enjoy the comfort of your parent's place. it'll be WAY warmer than where i'm heading. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
from argolam :
A fetal L. Ron Hubbard? That’s one image I know will haunt me in my sleep. Thanks, by the way. And the fingernail murder was great. But I preferred the methodical killings, like grinding up glass and putting it in people’s food.
from awittykitty :
In regards to Tookie, whose fate was in the hands of...da Terminaaaahtor, whose popularity is plummenting in California...the guy didn't have a chance. Meanwhile, all the liars, cheats and probably worse, who populate Bush's staff are running around posing for pictures. Is there something wrong with this picture?
from glass-arcade :
Just your Dland one. just email mine vonaelska-at-gmail-dot-com and I'll fire it off to you.
from glass-arcade :
I have Jose Gonzalez Heartbeat MP3, if you want it I can email it to you. Just let me know.
from sopeculiar :
I was exposed to the macabre delights of "Der Struwwelpeter" at a very young age as my Mum owns a very old copy of it, courtesy of some German relatives. I keep meaning to buy an English translation one of these days...
from lsmonkey :
Because James Mason's had already been taken??
from acornotravez :
You're shitting me...we have the same birthday? How did I not know this? Cool. Happy Birthday! :)
from nictate :
feliz cumpleanos, senor dd!
from simka :
Happy Birthday!!! Sorry it's late - still sincere and happy-thought-ful!
from lsmonkey :
*Hides head in shame* Belated birthday wishes, s.
from glass-arcade :
It's your birthday, yes? Happy Birthday to you!
from heelandlass :
Did I thank you for taking my survey already? I meant to...
from space-oddity :
I know it's still the 27th over here, but it's already tomorrow-4 in the morning or something in Scotland, so Happy Birthday, Dave! I hope it's the best Monday ever.
from pfirsich :
Oh,og means oh.Typo.
from pfirsich :
Og,I love the neon!
from argolam :
I say go for it. Teaching doesn't necessarily mean being grown up. I remember having some really good teachers in high school that I couldn't possibly imagine them in an adult life. One of them, the history teacher, used to walk around in faded Clash and Sex Pistols T-shirts and would force us to watch parts of the movie Shoah every time we misbehaved (It's a looooong movie). Plus, I'm also the child of teachers, so maybe I'm a little biased.
from glass-arcade :
The hurley episode made me laugh with the quote from his mother about jesus calling. boy oh boy, how do you refrain from finding out spoilers being as far back as that?
from killingjar :
nah, it's finished. you know where to go ;)
from glass-arcade :
I like graveyards with stones. The tree idea is nice but traipsing through a graveyard and looking at the various marker is an interesting time. Rymer loves it.
from lsmonkey :
Hi, thanks for the note. I feel terrible about the whole thing, but i really wish the best for E, whatever happens - she is just genuinely a really lovely person. I like your idea about the photo. She is a girl remembering who she was in a past life, she loves the family she has now been born into (to her right) and feels rueful because none of them can have any conception of what she knows and who she used to be. Take care, s.
from glass-arcade :
That's a great idea. I like this photo and it could so easily be Helsinki or Nebraska. Or Iceland. Her name is Salka and it's her first day of school. Her much older brother is what's so fascinating on the right. He's making faces to make her laugh so she won't be nervous.
from vanoonoo :
LOLOLOL!
from vanoonoo :
mmmmmkrummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm *drool* :D *happy dance*
from pfirsich :
I like you,I just,I hate myself somehow.Like,that´s not very tragic at all,-but,hm.I´m not like you,it´s true.But you´re really very,hm,unfeelable,like silk,you know.I don´t mind anything you say.Hm,somehow I´m mad at myself and angry and fuming,I don´t know why.---I always feel like I am making you feel more naked rather than more dressed.Hm,I should continue in email.
from pfirsich :
So,uh,don´t worry,I don´t think you´re doing anything wrong...It´s also a weird surprise for me that you,that the other one wants to hear it again and again,not just once and then it´s cleared up. That´s weird for me,because I figured once it´s clear it´s clear.Well,I really like you-and it´s so funny,I HATE to confess that.But,not because of you at all,because of me.I feel like I have not deserved to love you,you know.Because,you´re so beautiful and attractive and all.----Has nothing to do with you.I don´t mind you.But I don´t think I am minding anyone in the internet-oh,maybe that´s not true,I don´t know.---It´s really just,it´s really not you at all.You don´t annoy me.I annoy myself.Like,that´s what it feels like.I feel myself so much,I see myself so much being closer with you,you know.Being intense with you.So that´s it.
from pfirsich :
I like you,I just have a problem with saying that,you know.Cause,usually I´m being punished for that-I know,not your issue.It´s weird,everytime I´m supposed to show it I feel like I´m hating myself! Like,suddenly I feel so much heat.I´m really kind of totally burning myself in the sympathy for you,you know? Like,in confessing it.It´s weird.
from pfirsich :
You´re right,some performances suck.I´m so hearing you!
from corin82 :
I've had the new Franz Ferdinand album for the past week, and I haven't managed to listen to the whole thing...I keep repeating the songs over and over again because they are so damn catchy. By the way, I have a feeling that once Madeline Albright got a couple drinks in her, she would be promising more then appropriations (wink wink). After all, that is the American way.
from acornotravez :
Got it. -A
from corin82 :
Does that mean I can't sling childish insults anymore? Because if so, you're really destroying my one true joy in life.
from killingjar :
hey baby, how are you since we last spoke? (i just watched the full first season of twin peaks and man you were right audrey is a BOMBSHELL)
from heelandlass :
Oof! Once I sober up I think I'm in for a stonking hangover!! Did you get home okay? Lovely to meet you DD, it was a great night. After you left we started on tequila. Always a bad idea!!
from heelandlass :
I've just added you to my MSN Messenger thing, is that okay? I spoke to Pablo this morning, he's going to catch up with Bruce and then ring me back. Do you want me to ring you? Or I'm online at the moment on my MSN thing, so hopefully your details should be added so drop me a wee line - [email protected] xxx
from lsmonkey :
Hi - thanks for the birthday wishes. Hope all well, s
from acornotravez :
Thanks, man. (PS I just saw your quote from your profile from Douglas Coupland/author. Weird.)
from glass-arcade :
you sent the heat here, admit it! While it's cooler there it's now 36 degrees here..celsius. if it were the other, I'd be cold and happy.
from treedancer :
aww, you're a sweetheart to ask, thankyou! :)
from extremesock :
Gangster glasses are awesome. And I happen to like tortuses.
from treedancer :
awww, thanks You. {hug} I think there'll be more of a rant on that entire question later on. ;)
from sundaygirl :
nope. same as it ever was.
from treedancer :
hope you feel better soon :)
from lsmonkey :
D - thanks for the kind note - hope you have/had a good weeknd, s.
from treedancer :
cheers! As for Ratzy..eh. Nice to see the church being so progressive. Y'know, for a change? heh. ;)
from treedancer :
I enjoyed "Memoirs of a Geisha." :) And, there's nothin' wrong with judge dredd either ;)
from how-to-fight :
I never thought I'd say it but Kelly Osbourne looks... very attractive in that photograph..
from treedancer :
thankyou! :)
from treedancer :
*grin - what is a stovie? How do I make 'em?
from killingjar :
oh i dunno, i kinda liked that one. the only funny hellen keller jokes have her talking in binary code.
from treedancer :
seeing your word there, what if the H. in his name stood for Heretic? heh. As for your arm, most likely nothing to worry about, but to allay stress levels, go see the doctor. Cannot be deprived of a discodave update if he has acute tendonitis and cannot type or is laid low with a migraine etc! Books? Not sure what you have read already, or what you like, but James Clavell's stuff I enjoy: feudal Japan, intrigue, sex, history, action..."Shogun" "Tai Pan"* "Noble House" - *the film sucked. What are you in the mood for?
from treedancer :
yep; you hit that one right on the head. agoraphobia doesn't bloody help either...heh.
from treedancer :
it's ok, just sometimes gets on top of me. whut?! could it be this hermit life is not all it is cracked up to be? heh. {hugs} for the note. thanks, love.
from killingjar :
(mandy's BACK)
from extravagaria :
thanks for the greeting! the birthday had every distinguishing characteristic of a birthday. and a bit of chinese new year and mardi gras. and tuesday.
from treedancer :
yay for apathy! ;)
from treedancer :
awww, thankyoumuchly for that, belated or otherwise! *grin. very nice of you to take the time to do it. :)
from acornotravez :
Hell yeah, Joey approves.
from lsmonkey :
Formerly astronautm. Have a good weekend, s.
from henry-jones :
Cheerio Dave. For a Belle and Sebastian fan, you're ok! Enjoyed your entries. Cheers
from treedancer :
happy 2005 to you! hope it brings you all you could hope for. :)
from a-libertine :
You may have vodka, but do you have Irn-Bru? Heh. Oh gosh, I hope you have a happy new year, my friend, you and Lis, I miss you guys. You guys and yogurt.
from suprgoddess :
happy new year dave! *cheers*
from vanoonoo :
sent you a memail
from vanoonoo :
welcome home :)
from treedancer :
*peers. hrmmm..."Two peanuts walked into a bar. One was a salted." ;) yep, most people are indeed ratbastards. hope tomorrow is better for you!
from acornotravez :
Man, until you pointed it out, I didn't even realize it was my 200th. Pretty crappy entry, I must observe the obvious. C ya.
from treedancer :
awww, {{{hugs!}}} thankyou for that. yes, it was sick, but it bloody well made me laugh and I needed that. :-D parental presents: well...for a novelty gift, you could buy them an acre on the moon. for £20.00. seriously, this is a gift option! bit steep, i know, but you might thank me in 2050 when an acre of the mooon is like a gazillion pounds. ;)
from killingjar :
you have no clothes? oh dearest say no more, i'm making you some more shirts.
from a-libertine :
Thank you love! When I got up this morning I had wine instead of tea. I guess that's a start on being inebriated, but Sunday birthdays are sort of dismal.
from treedancer :
oops - apologies. i had no idea! i was going to wish you [both] feeling better soon, but it sounds kinda lame, so i'm just going to leave it and you'll know what i mean. hopefully.
from treedancer :
*peers....what ails you, mmm? suggest other ale version may help. along with festive mince pie or ten. ;) {hugs}
from kristoli :
Ach, it's never easy but eventually honesty being the best policy will pay off. I'm sure there are many more cliches I can add, oh yes, time is a great healer you know ;) Sorry.
from worldwar24 :
I doubt you could have handled it.
from worldwar24 :
I know. But hey - only about 90% of it was about you anyway.
from heelandlass :
p.s - was your birthday 30 November? It was my birthday on 30th. If it was, what age were you?
from heelandlass :
7.What was the greatest show you've ever been to? Radiohead at T in the Park in 1995(?). The sky was thundery and the weather on the cusp of turning to rain and they blew me away. Fake Plastic Trees and High and Dry almost reduced me to tears. ******************************** That's exactly the same answer as I have for that question. It was incredible wasn't it? As soon as Thom started singing the light split through the thundery clouds with some kind of majestical glow. It was insane, breathtaking and I WAS moved to tears. Sigh.
from treedancer :
links, asides and the commentary sandwiched between the two, is the perfect mix for making your diary as enjoyable to read as it is. Now, unless i am having a brainfart (more than likely) -today is your birthday? In which case: cake, candles and *many* good wishes for the year to come. And if it isn't today...well...cake is always good ;)hope you have a lovely day. :)
from extremesock :
Anytime.
from treedancer :
aww it's ok. sometimes cliches say it best.
from extremesock :
*Heart*
from treedancer :
sounds like you could do with a some of these {{hugs}}..in the abscence of my lottery win ;)
from indie-anna :
ahahahahaha - he does look like a crispin glover/hitler mix. i've always said so. oh, dave, just another of the many reasons to love you.
from extremesock :
My thoughts exactly on Waldo's outfit. Talk about scary. And what the hell was up with his glasses and that friggin' hat?
from extremesock :
Whats up with people trying to find Atlantis? Life is hectic enough trying to find Waldo in those kooky Where's Waldo books. People are just never satisfied, are they? *tsk tsk*. Love you. :D
from befuddled21 :
Christopher Walken, scares the shit out of me too. I thought I was alone in my fear. Glad to hear that I'm not.
from extremesock :
West Wing rocks. And I believe that CJ is an elf, explaining why she towers over everybody.
from golfwidow :
Thanks for trying, anyway. Want to be in the Pretend Internet Boy Harem(tm) as consolation?
from a-libertine :
Ohmygosh. You're going, right? When you do go, you must tell me absolutely anything. And The London Tears really would be the absolute shittiest band name I have ever heard.
from ozrockchic :
distracted by ellie? hehe you're only human. and she's pretty cute. let your public know when you update your story so i can go check out the next installment.
from worldwar24 :
you know... i think i'd prefer it if you weren't "eligible".
from treedancer :
awww. well, if it comes true, you'll be the first to know! :)
from treedancer :
heh, you're welcome. ;)
from killingjar :
no worries, i'm not going anywhere. [it's coming along great. i'm more excited about it than i probably should be. i'm going to every XXX shop in soho tonight to look for proper boots, a la http://www.5years.com/redboots.jpg]
from killingjar :
"i would punch a rainbow bag" -- that's so brilliant
from a-libertine :
I'm not really sure what's more beautiful than "whisper." But I've always thought "colostomy" was a really cool word, though it doesn't exacly come up in conversations alot. I don't say it near enough.
from a-libertine :
Ah, gosh, this is the first I've heard of John Peel's death, oh, gosh, that's really tragic, that. I mean, I suppose he was a bit old and all, but, you know--this note's going nowhere. Hehe. That is sick you're needing to put out Christmas decorations. It's OCTOBER. Then again, it's snowy and christmasy here too. Do you folks get alot of snow? xo.
from vanoonoo :
I just thought - would a tank style vest with "balingry babe" on it have many takers dya reckon
from worldwar24 :
okay, so my new phone? seriously the best thing ever.
from treedancer :
*blushes madly. OK: I *am* a dork. Didn't even notice it was a hot link, despite the nice purple colour. Eh....sorry!
from treedancer :
I'm pleased you captured the graffiti. Once saw a guy based in Europe dedicate an entire online journal to it - quite interesting stuff. Thankyou for sharing. :)
from killingjar :
one of your local bums scared me too - we were in some bank and a 200 year old blind one pushed the woman next to me out of her seat and knocked over her baby's bottle with his cane. i think her boyfriend beat him up after we left.
from disquiet :
d: i might just be looking for a glaswegian adventure come the end of january. i'll be in london, birmingham and, if not glasgow, then inverness. let's raise a few, yeah? big love. xo|s
from nervously :
Daaave, you do know that Ti was one of those sandals only wearing tourists, yes? Though, I drilled into her the need for practical shoes. xo.
from killingjar :
yeah, gagged on my own drool at all of julia's outfits ;) heheh.
from killingjar :
i don't know how they do in scotland but over here there are no mouths involved in hugs :)
from killingjar :
hmph. well, you're a woman of the street, but you don't see ME calling you on it, do you?
from indie-anna :
what is THAT supposed to mean, dave? we're fighting. ;P
from killingjar :
Because they're mature and famous now.. *pouts* I personally refuse to buy Suede's best-of, I guess because I have all their albums anyway and I'm not quite as loyal enough to them to the extent where I'd eat their feces with a fork just because it was theirs, as I am to sure to do with, say, Placebo's shit, which I guarantee I'll end up buying on pre-order anyway. Oh Dave how quick they all are to abandon.
from indie-anna :
HAHAHAHHA!!! touche! ;)
from indie-anna :
oh, dave. for some reason the first word i thought of for you was fancy. and here's the fancy picture i chose: http://www.linedanceoxford.co.uk/Fancy%20Dress%20Group%20Dec%2001.jpg perfect, don'tcha think? that picture is, to me, the true essence of dave. you know it, i know it.
from killingjar :
i wouldn't mind so much a singles collection or a dvd of all the videos, even, but it's got some new song of which i've heard a 20 second clip and became horribly confused, and the video looks shmaltzy from what i've seen but i could be jumping the gun... plus he's beginning to dress like oprah.... but worst of all, he's got a TAN now (a tan!!!), and if that doesn't signify the beginning of the end then what does?
from killingjar :
these both ranked equally on the scale of befittingness. you can guess what the word i chose was. and your guestbook doesn't work for some reason. (http://www.greekchorus.com/fluff/images/fluff.jpg) (http://www.s-t.com/daily/12-95/12-04-95/fluff.JPG). love.
from nervously :
Daaave, you're so not old. You don't act at all old. You act like someone around our age (do take this as a compliment), who knows loads more and has all sorts of neat stuff and a large pile of old newspapers and has already achieved international fame and fortune via the Suede book. So there. :) xo.
from nervously :
Oh, that's no indicator of old-ness! If it is, I've been middle age ever since I stopped listening to punk music all of the time and staying out late only to walk around chinatown. I guess I was old at 15, then.
from killingjar :
here's to a thousand more.
from heelandlass :
well, you've got to wonder, I mean - all female gym teachers wear their sports gear in day to day life and you know what they say about them. I have just been speaking about felching to Bandito (not suggesting we try it obviously) and he said that he worked beside a girl from Wishaw for years and felching is what they say for 'snogging' or 'winching' or, well you get the idea. Brilliant. On the other hand, Dave - you realise we are basing our entire virtual friendship around the word felching. Brilliant. xxx
from dominguez :
dave mate, i was only joking about, not pulling you up on grammer.
from henry-jones :
Got a laugh out of this bit, it reminded me of High Fidelity (the book, not the movie) when he goes to the cinema with his parents, which is probably worse than going on your own! But yeah, anyway, I noted with some relief that I wasn't the only one in the cinema on my own, although it was a little disconcerting to find that the other guy was well into his 40's and had tucked his jumper into his jeans (Just kill me if I sink to that level, OK?)
from treedancer :
going to the "flicks" by yerself isn't so bad. you can sit where you like (aisle seat for max. leg stretching length ;)and you don't have to have a fight using Elbows of Death for the most comfy position on the armrest. Your bloke sounds like the one who, during a showing of Lethal Weapon, thought he was actually Mel Gibson and pointed his thumb+forefinger at the screen - y'know, how little kids do when they are making the fake "gun" sign? As if that wasn't enough, he kept mumbling key lines under his breath. Wondered why there was a 5 seat spare radius around him. heh.
from nervously :
Oh no, not ignorance at all! That's a photo from a play called "Underneath the Lintel" that I haven't seen--I was checking the particulars to the Douglas Coupland show that's going on here and the photo to "Underneath The Lintel" came up, and I liked it, at least until I either make a new layout or stop writing or whatever. Nice photo, that.
from treedancer :
Happy 1000th! :D
from nervously :
....HAPPY THOUSANDTH DAVE!
from treedancer :
*chuckle. You know, I really do rather like your style. *grin.
from befuddled21 :
I thought perhaps I could force myself to watch Battlefield Earth becuase I find Barry Pepper extremely attractive but I couldn't do it. And thats saying a lot about the movie right there.
from treedancer :
Wasn't a bad book at all. Mebbe you can apply post its to the top of the page: "stop reading over my shoulder, jackass." No? ok then...;)
from treedancer :
I watched the hamburg cell and felt similar to you. :-| One thing, did you find the almost incessant background music annoying? On a much lighter note: I really liked your ninja egg dude. I shall never look at another Golden Lay egg in quite the same light again. Made me smile. Thanks! *grin.
from treedancer :
heh...I was going to suggest the bicarb treatment too. :-D if the dry bicarb doesn't work, make up a solution of the stuff and wash down the inside of the cooker / micro. - wherever she happened to cook the dreaded dish.
from heelandlass :
I'm ashamed of myself for even knowing this, but if you want to get rid of the fish smell try putting bowls of bicarbonate of soda into corners of the rooms that are affected and lemons are also good - cut them in half and leave them on radiators and in the cooker or wherever she cooked the fish too. They should absorb the smell rather than cloak it like air freshener tries to do. If you don't have those to hand - try bowls of salt. I'm sad beyond my years for knowing that - but it should work. Especially if you close all the windows and the doors while you're trying it out. xxx
from nervously :
That bit in The Shining with the girls cut up in the hallway used to scare the piss out of me. Oh, and... I think it's Tim Curry, as IT, that creepy clown man. I would go on to watch that film much later on, on mushrooms, and I couldn't stop laughing because everyone looked like David Bowie. xo.
from treedancer :
nothing wrong with that whatsoever! have a fab time. :)

Don't feel left out, darlin'--we all love ogling your mind.

from dominguez :
hey discodave, good meeting you last week. i got meself a new diary so i added you.. b.

not sure it was exactly what you were thinking of, but, Margaret Rutherford when she played Ms.Marple, sprang into my mind re: female heroines? Mebbe a hero of a different kind. ;)

Good link to the personality tests, looks like we are very similar anally!

oh. you too? well, it's not just you, but as far as I can tell, it's just you and my friend div. hmm. obviously I am html retarded. I'll try to fix it tonight or tomorrow. eep.
from henry-jones :
I find it best to avoid mainstream media. I think it's like the two minute hate in 1984. Given our government is pretty much a clone of yours, we have the same shit. Any itinerant Afghani refugee is clearly trying to set up an Al Qaeda terrorist cell because, well, becuase they're foreign, and arabic and, just because we say so. Cheers Dave, have a nice day

Where the hell are you? Sunshine? Ice cream? Are you mad?

arrgh! Blessed the day I score above you at Babble, dude. So close...yet, so far. Why could I not see PORNO! Hmph! :P
from dulcibella :
I am from a county that doesn't really have an accent...my cousin & I used to pretend we were French (just for the accent) when we were kids! Au revoir
from astronautm :
Thanks for the kind note. Feeling a little better today. Hope all well with you, s.
from dulcibella :
Yeah, I really must get round to reading "The Dante Club" - picked it up coz it sounded "Secret History"ish. If you do happen to read it, let me know what you think - I might be swayed to put it further up my to be read list! Happy reading.
from dulcibella :
Funny thing is I really wanted Isla's hairstyle when I was 6...I didn't realise until recently that Isla was a folk singer! On the book front...have just finished "The Clock Winder" by Anne Tyler - girl becomes a handyman for a widow & gets embroiled in the crises of her family...much better than I thought, not at all twee..."Human Punk" by John King is a good read...about a kid growing up during the punk era...keep meaning to read "The Dante Club" by Matthew Pearl - a group of scholars in 1865 Boston prepare to induce Dante's vision of hell to America, a murderer thinks they'll do the same...also really like "Morvern Callar/These Demented Lands" by Alan Warner...
from henry-jones :
nearly made it to T in the Park myself. Unfortunately costs of getting there proved to be a problem. I think I'm still paying off a trip to Reading a couple of years ago! Anyway, sounded good, wish I could have been there. And I know that after 4 nights of camping, with at best 3 hours sleep, a real bed felt damn good
from dulcibella :
Tartan tablecloths sounds very Vivienne Westwood - tres chic.
from dulcibella :
You're right, bin liners are so not a good look
from dulcibella :
You won't begrudge buying a hoist type contraption for the next HP book then...on the festival front am all out of comedy suggestions...you could fashion an entire outfit from bin liners. Ok you might get a bit sweaty, but everyone else'll be stinking.
from dulcibella :
Think JK waffled a bit though. Dread to think how long the next book will be! Am all for kids reading more books, but let these be books they can read without doing themselves an injury - unless the extra words n stuff are completely integral to the plot.
from dulcibella :
Was really disappointed by the last HP book.
from henry-jones :
Oh shit, I forgot about them. Not that that is easy today when the news is full of stories about the Aust cycling team being full of drugs. And one of our tv networks has proudly announced they will be showing 16hrs of olympics a day.
from dulcibella :
Agree with you about Mac...how about Mac & Wogan commentating together!
from henry-jones :
Henman's out, football's over, cricket was aweful and we thrashed you at rugby. How's the tabloids coping??? Found a good royal scandal to smother the sporting disasters eg Princess Di was pregnant with Andy's baby. Have a nice day Dave
from dulcibella :
I'll let the crowd off - they've paid through the nose for a ticket to Wimbers...the commentators who say it's Henman's destiny to win - that really makes me laugh. I reckon the beeb ought to get Terry Wogan to commentate in a Eurovision Song contest stylee!
from whiskeybabe :
hey it would be awsome if u would reed my diary!
from dulcibella :
Gaah - Henmania is now in full flight...Watching old Tim is worse than watching the English footie team.
from henry-jones :
If it's any consolation, I have no idea either!
from dulcibella :
You're right. My friend probably has a point about reclaiming our national flags/symbols from the bigots. Mind you, this bloke I used to work with used to stick a flag on his desk on St George's day - just a little too eccentric for me.
from suprgoddess :
There is already a museum there at the Acropolis. Personally (being a Greek and all), I think those "Elgin Marbles" should be returned to their rightful homeland and people. My family resides in that dustbowl Athens, so I guess that makes me a bias standard with regards to the matter. On another note, you had me rolling dude with the "viking invasion" thingy. You're too funny. :D
from sidewaysrain :
cheers dave, I don't deserve it but I certainly appreciate it.
from henry-jones :
Interesting views on the football. After the Portugese match a mate of mine described the English as terrible losers but worse winners. In particular, your comment about blaming the opposition. This seems a peculiar British trait (I say British because of Lord Ferguson of Old Trafford is good at it too)of blaming the opposition for wanting to win. You only have to wait for Tim Henman to be knocked out of Wimbledon and all the jingoism will be finished for another year. Incidentally, how many times did you hear "footballs coming home" over the past two weeks? Cheers
from henry-jones :
You're bit of a cad, exploiting my literary ignorance like that!
from dulcibella :
I wanna party like it's 1994 (a particularly vintage year for cider drinking, indie debauchery)!
from dulcibella :
Over the last few weeks I have loathed & detested seeing St George flags everywhere, think you hit the nail on the head. Had an argument with a friend today coz I associate that flag with racists. She echoed a piece I read in the Observer a few weeks back, which if memory serves me right, was about reclaiming the flag from bigots...I dunno, I just find it all a bit distasteful.
from suprgoddess :
bahh! i'm so indecisive about who i wanna be when i grow up!!! i guess i'll just be supergoddess for now. *feel the force* dxx, i just CAN'T imagine this world without you. *cheers* right back at cha. :o)~~~
from dulcibella :
Soz on the Gedge front...(!) I'm beginning to think the whole point of English football is losing penalty shoot outs - once again I'm embarrassed by the behaviour of the supporters, like you say it is only a game.
from ms-z :
ew. old peeps have just gone through so much shiatt they just don't give a rip anymore, i'm gathering. simple logic. there are those, and then there are the ones who have a story or nasty opinion for EVERYTHING. hm. but, you make me laugh, so you're cool.

Was it??? I haven't read any of Narnia, but damn bugger shit damn damn.

aww, thanks duck. that put brightness into a total crap day. i write what i know, and i pretend to know nothing. less than three to you from me.<3
from valli2 :
Hi, just a small question from a French girl : how is it that la Fête de la musique is known in England? that's very French heh. Anyway, love your diary. Have a nice day. xoxox
from icomeundone :
no problem. anytime. it's what i am here for.
from dulcibella :
Take it you mean Primal Scream & not The Wedding Present...
from dulcibella :
Yay - Marion used to remind me a little bit of early U2. Wonder what happened to them. Mansun were a quality band too.
from dulcibella :
I'd go along with France having a chance to win the tournament. I shall be cheering on Croatia (albeit very quietly!) on Monday or whenever it is they play "Ingerland" - their coach is 71! ... I didn't know Doves were Sub Sub - am always grateful for some music trivia...aah the heady days of Brit Pop, I used to like Marion - does that count?
from dulcibella :
Could hear my Scottish neighbour yelling "Come on Switzerland" before the game! Shame on the Swiss, for not sticking enough pins in. My dad tells me that England are favourites to win the thing...this I take with a pinch of salt, his favourite sport is cricket!
from henry-jones :
Are you sure you are not thinking of the dieter's warship - the Battleship Pritikin. And as Mary Poppins sinks slowly in the west... I'm sure there was some point to this, but it escapes me now.
from dulcibella :
Spooky
from dulcibella :
Aww, stick a pin in a voo doo doll for me - or on my behalf should I say! Oh & wear that Hard rock caff t - shirt with pride. I had a pretty cool Smash t-shirt (remember them?) that said F**K Art, let's rock... mind you I used to cover it with a cardi, kinda loses the effect. Should've got one that said "Turn the music down" or " I like that nice Richard Clayderman"
from suprgoddess :
stole yer stuff, so here's some love...*mwah~mwah~mwah* :P
from dulcibella :
I take it you'll be sticking a few pins in a voo doo doll then!!
from dulcibella :
Can imagine Yuri Geller inciting the nation to think positive thoughts for England
from dulcibella :
Ok so "Ingerland" qualified for Euro 2004, but it don't mean they're much cop (I know everything there is to know about football, I would explain the offside rule - but there ent enough space here). When I heard Becks missed a penalty I thought the man's scored himself a pizza add then. It just makes me laff how they're supposedly "going to win" these competitions...
from dulcibella :
Oh it was Travolta - my channel 5 is all fuzzy! Didn't need to watch the match (even if I wanted to) just had to listen to the respective cheers of my English & Scots/Irish neighbours.
from dulcibella :
D.D - I'm English, but I agree with you on the football thing! Shall be watching whatever cheesy film chnnel 5 has on offer.
from indie-anna :
i'm wondering if everyone gets that s&m result because i got it too. i mean, i know i like it rough, but really. it doesn't make sense. i also wanted to tell you that i put my name in that "privates eye" thing the other day, and mine was hilarious - "hungry pit". hahaha. xo.

re: moving Reagan's body to Washington. i've heard rumors California was hoping to get rid of him for good this time.

"having a go at me?" heh! never even crossed my mind! (and besides, why would you? :))worry not! no, I meant by the "vote" there's been a bit of a scandal down here about postal votes being rigged, and also, some care workers using old peoples' votes = fraud. just poking fun at myself, as i do ;) no worries, ok? :)
from treedancer :
agree re: BNP. the rest? eh. i'd vote for the dancing cat party, but alas, I'm not in a care home (yet; matter of time, no doubt) so I'm not sure my "vote" would count. heh. ;)
from dulcibella :
Thanks for the tip

i feel so ashamed - only 8 out of 15. i'd be hanging my head right now if it didn't make detecting typing errors rather difficult. on a different not, this is all very interesting coming as it does from a government which defines the truth not as that which can be proved but that which cannot be proved false.

i thought about that too. sitting down with him, and saying, "look. we're both adults here. you have sex, i have sex..." and i can't get further than that because i start getting creeped out by the thought of my dad KNOWING i am a HUMAN BEING who does filthy, horrible things. let's face it. i have no other option. i have to smash the computer.

hahaha! i needed that. thanks. i didn't not see the icewoman. maybe she went to the first night, when radiohead headlined. i overheard someone in the oasis area say, "there's adam goldberg." not quite as a-list exciting, but i would've been excited.
from treedancer :
heh; I do that with books too. Yay, there's more of us, wheee. Totally agree with you about the other stuff.

She's good (the friend). We refer to the day as The Appendix now, as in, "Remember The Appendix? and, "Oh, did that happen 'round the time of The Appendix?". And I stole tulips for her. Hurrah.

hey. what's your livejournal again?
from treedancer :
cats will do that; does depend on the cat though. one of mine (George) would always come with me across the fields. if i ever left him behind, he got really grumpy. i mean, *really* grumpy. he made me pay for it. as revenge, he would leap off the high units - 10lbs of flying cat - landing onto the tender parts of a sleeping human (me!) at 2 am...heh. he owned me. :)

I always vote, you have to do that much at least, but I understand those who don't vote, not out of apathy, but because they're only presented with a choice of greater and lesser evils. In an ideal world, not voting could be a statement of protest against the unrelenting bullshit of political rhetoric. I wish people would get outa their heads and stop acting in the real world according to the illusions of their ideal worlds.

3/20/04: Well, now that you've given me an explanation for the war that makes sense, maybe the thing for me to do is to stop bitching and actually thank the dynamic duo (Bush/Tony). Because now that they've blown up all the potential immigrants at the source, I'll have fewer immigration cases, and I might get a weekend off every now and then. On second thought, I think I'd rather work weekends. (P.S. I don't blame you. In those weather conditions, I would have stayed home too.) ~Jess. :~)

it IS my s. o.! he is playing with a barbie doll in his user pic. Just another reason to love him.
from sidewaysrain :
thanks sweetpea. Hopefully it's nothing. I did NOT get off the couch yesterday but I did today. hooray!
from anonadada72 :
I'm sticking to notes since you're guestbook doesn't like me. Those kitties and the mutated rodents advertising subs are the things of nightmares. And I think you're right about Dubya's response to this newly articulated threat to national security. US factories (and SUV owners) beware. ~Jess.
from dancin-llama :
don't think so. is that one of the soulwax dj albums? i have their 'much against everyone's advice' album. also very good
from moviegrrl :
not that precocious, born in '67.. And, like the Cameron Stewart artwork, for some reason it reminds me of old stuff like "Axel Pressbutton" (there I go again...)
from moviegrrl :
I've got the Muppets Album - it's on that...(yes I got it when it first came out, yes i AM that old...)
from dancin-llama :
workin' nine to five, what a way to make a living...
from moviegrrl :
"Tit Willow" is Rolf the dog and Sam the Bald Eagle, doing a Gilbert and Sullivan number, with Sam, very deadpan having to say "Willow, tit willow, tit willow". Sam agrees to it because it's cultural but of course it just ends up completely hilarious... And the Angel picture is bloody wonderful.... (and signmygb is being wanky again....)
from moviegrrl :
heheheheheh I knew you'd not be able to resist. Yup! I'm evil that way *smooch*
from neuroticaa :
mm-mmm-mmmmm, i want to make babies with the mix tape i made you. but instead i'll just copy one for myself. i shall mail it on wednesday after i get back from my trip. ♥
from solarlab :
maybe if you were more self-obsessed for our entertainment, you'd be less self-obsessed in the [real] world. yeah right. like that's helped me.
from urban-faerie :
Do you even have an LJ anyway? I looked on Lis' friends list and couldn't see a name that was obviously you, so I gave up.
from urban-faerie :
It's helen_marie, it's friends only, but I'll add you. :) I didn't even try to get this name on there, but I just looked now and as if there's two of them with my name!
from moviegrrl :
damn was he??? I never watched it, can't remember why because i know I had a major thing for all things Gaiman-y at the time. Missed the first part of Angels in America too, adn am now cursing the heavens. (But love the fact the Micheal Powell is still such a huge influence...did I ever told I was the person who sold Denny Boyle his VHS copy of "A Matter of Life and Death" when he was starting work on "A Life Less Ordinary"...)
from neuroticaa :
oh i know, most of them ARE straight. what i meant was, note how they are all gay IN MY MIND. <3
from golfwidow :
I don't want to be party to a witch hunt, so I'd feel more comfortable not giving out specific information to anyone who's not directly affected. I did check your profile and linkers and no one who's involved appears in either spot, so you have not been a victim. (You'll also notice that, since I was not directly involved either, the word "allegedly" appears in my diary entry about this whole mess. I only found out about it indirectly from someone who was duped.)
from opensecret :
I liked the comment on Cream's Sunshine of Yor Love. (Beth: Ooh, I think this is by my dad.) But what the heck is Busters?
from metastatic :
grrr. thwarted by gbook once again, so sorry if you get this twice. Ignoring the possible sarcastic undertones of your note, the code is <a href="http://etc"target=_blank>text</a>. Having popped over to mine to visit once or twice, it's obvious to you that I am, of course, totally rockin in the html skills department. kx.
from haberdasher :
thank you dave.
from lastyeargirl :
I almost don't want to say it, since it'll doubtless be the other way round by tomorrow... but I'm beating you by one ;) If you fancy going for a drink after work tonight, text me when you're finished.
from neuroticaa :
same as before. username=neuroticaa, password=upthewall <3
from anonadada72 :
apparently SignMyGuestbook is having epileptic fits today -- you may or may not get this message there as well. selling a kidney sounds drastic, and permanent, and i think the sale of major organs and other assorted body parts should be considered only as a last resort. although a pain in the arse, a job search is probably the lesser of two evils here.
from treedancer :
you make me smile. thanks! ;)
from solarlab :
ah the subtle manipulations of my minimalism. i was shooting for emotional resonance, but hey, whatever sticks. xxoo
from lastyeargirl :
Your guestbook can't decide whether I've signed it or not. Which means my message will probably show up sometime next week. Meh. Can I sleep on your shoulder? x
from opensecret :
Boo. Probably. It's been a long while since the fifth grade. Jesus, did I just say that?
from uglyalice :
thanks for the note, and thanks for adding me back. UA
from opensecret :
Funny how the day you comment on Scout and Atticus Finch is the day I was set on putting them away quietly. All very coincidental, I swear. But "ta" anyway. (I learned that word from some Australian tourists. It's their slang for thank you.)
from misstrish :
Damn me signing too many guestbooks! As I was saying... It's pathetic how much I've bounced around today. No one should be this happy over a machine. All I need now is some more credit on my phone! I don't think I'll sleep tonight...

Isn't a touch of arrogance a requirement for being Scottish? That and being opinionated. Spelling mistakes aside, an arrogant, opinionted Scot . . . like I said . . . mmmm, kinda' makes my mouth water. ;) ~J.

London, Paris, Lyon, Barcelona, Nice, Florence, Rome, Venice, Vienna, Lucerne, St. Goar, Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, and Amsterdam. The journey was ineffable. I have museum stubs, Metro stubs, and stubby feet thanks to all that walking. I dream about a city every night. Sometimes I wonder if it was all a dream, really.

i want to wish you all the best for the season of madness and that the new year brings you all that you could wish for. thanksmuchly for your support this year; greatly appreciated. :-D

i ain't got no 8 tracks! those crazy things are useless. a friend of mine had an 8track player in his car once though. we only had like one cassette to put in it. i forget what it was, but it sucked. that is all.

{{hugs}} rightbackatcha and thankyou. sorry to hear about your stuff as well - farking money. you wait till i win that lottery, you could go to the council, gas and landlord and tell 'em to [insert sweary creativeness here]! ;)
from lastyeargirl :
57%, and I think I should get bonus points for giggling because one of the questions mentioned Ryan Adams...
from moviegrrl :
http://www.couplandesque.net/culture/musicnerd.htm saw it and thought of you...but in a good way! And I too am now completly smitten with the idea of reading His Dark Materials...
from achren :
(stupid guestbook!) so i should send you his dark materials as a combination birthday/christmas/last year's birthday present, then? ok. xo.m.
from lastyeargirl :
No... just spelling (sorry, but it was too easy ;)
from aleathiad :
i was wondering if you have ever been to Kilwinning? my boyfriends family was from there...The Ross's and the Stewart's. it looks like a tiny place. i just wonder what it is like there. i hope to see it someday for myself. alea
from aleathiad :
yes politicians are the worst in my book because they purposely manipulate the public for their own gain or the gain of the highest contributors of their re-election funds. bush is a prime example of that. i would like to roast him on an open fire. he has his own agenda without regard to the people of this world...he orders the killings of americans and iragis without real regret. he definitely has no regard for the state he will leave this country in when he leaves office. what a damn mess. politicians are the worst sociopaths! all my love and light..alea
from aleathiad :
yes you are right...how silly of me to leave out ALL the details. you make a fine editor or hence, a fact checker. alea

hehe Could you explain exactly how one 'pretends to read'???? Priceless, my dear. I did indeed laugh out loud at that. Its 1:18am so sweet dreams and good night.
from lastyeargirl :
I love Tom Lehrer, as well I would anyone who writes a song all about poisoning pigeons. Or "The Vatican Rag", which Kaite played for me the other day. Hmmm. Perhaps it's a good thing I haven't finished the, er, seasonal-ish entry I was going to post tonight. But then again, I'm not scared of youuuuu ;)
from solarlab :
i know i'm late on wishing but HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY. xxxooo
from opensecret :
I carry around a little moleskine journal, jotting down as much as possible when I'm out and about. When I return to my hotel room, I've got this huge, three subject, plaid cover notebook I scrawl in 'til the wee hours. So I'll be sure to send some of that your way when I don't have to be charged for using the internet.
from indie-anna :
OH! SO YOU'RE SAYING I DON'T HAVE BRAINS!?! you get two grrr/s in one day. GRRRRRRRRR, dave. GRRRRRR. <3 xo.

from astronautm :
No, i don't thinks she does. Thanks v. much for the tip. s
from opensecret :
I'll be back. There's way too much I haven't done and seen. This trip has only given me a taste of Europe and oh, how it's made me hungry for more.
from neuroticaa :
what our last words will be =X
from neuroticaa :
oh, no, i thought you were talking about something else.
from indie-anna :
thank you for the birthday wishes. :) yes, it's today - the 30th. damn dave, sagittarians really are the best. i hope yr's was good as well. <3 xo.
from straysparrow :
Did I say Happy Day to you? I meant to. Judging by the hangover you described, it was a good one. I had a beer in your honour on Friday night (it was called Scottish Storm Ale so I figured it was appropriate). Ciao. Sparrow.
from neuroticaa :
hmmm. it's bad if you're of the genobe who turn into those violent drunks who pull a chuck palahniuk and start shouting and beating the shit out of people.... and good any time else.
from idiot-milk :
You may get this message twice, as Signmyguestbook is being a bastard once again... Well, goddamn. Ever behind the times, I'm only just now finding out it was your birthday. I suck. But better late than never, I always say! So Happy Belated Birthday, peanut! Hope it was lovely!
from metastatic :
happy brithday to you, happy brithday to you. that's quite catchy really, and no exclamation marks needed. except for the expletives uttered at the guestbook. have a good one. kx
from achren :
(stupid guestbook!) happy birthday! sheesh, you getting enough messages to that effect? ;) my mom says thanks for the birthday wishes as well. xo.m.
from dharmabum :
happy birthday! hope you have a fantastic day:)
from astronautm :
Happy Birthday! Tried leaving message on your guestbook, but it takes an eternity. s
from moviegrrl :
Happy Birthday!!!!! had meant to design you super dooper e-card, forgot totally, what a prat eh? Hope the hangover isn't too heinous, make sure there's plenty of Irn-Bru in the house before you leave tonight...xxxx

Happy Birthday! But remember, you have to buy nothing for it...!

My last day will be in London but that's the closest I'll be. (off topic: these German keyboards are killing me)
from lastyeargirl :
That is the funniest thing I've ever read. I think I'm getting jealous ;)

Peek if you like, it just means you'll have nothing to look forward to on Friday! Sorry for boring you to death with talk of Ryan today, I promise to be more interesting next time I see you ;)

hmm, your guestbook stripped out html. I assume his gravestone will read </life> Mxx
from moongazer17 :
hey, no problem :)
from extravagaria :
And no, my muse isn't playing hard to get; the last entry clearly stated that it's back. It had a mild fit involving a laurel wreath, due to all the documentaries that I forced it to watch last weekend. It wanted to bury itself in Euripides, Ovid, and Virgil for brainfood, not some oversimplified television.
from lastyeargirl :
I liked it, although I doubt I'll ever be able to watch The Wizard of Oz again, or at least not in the same way. I've got shorthand til 3 so I won't be in Glasgow until about five-ish - what time are you working on Wednesday?
from lastyeargirl :
Your guestbook hates me. Can't quite believe that THE discodave mentioned Ryan Adams in his journal... a fact i put down almost entirely to my good influence, of course.
from moongazer17 :
your welcome, darling. i meant that i liked your diary. sorry if i confused you. hugs*xxCrystlexx
from zaziel :
Do I smoke? Not anymore. I starting quitting about ten years ago, after I got out of the calaboose (prison made me wanna quit most of my bad habits, it had something to do with confronting so many wasted, stupid lives). I finally achieved the final cure when Jer moved in with me, 2 years ago. Jer and the Fiend don't smoke, smoking is unnattractive to them, so that really helps me stay away from the cancer sticks. I used to enjoy an occasional cigar while working, but that habit's kinda fallen away too. But if I land in the British isles anytime in my life, I will certainly bum a fag while I'm there, although I'm afraid my giggling will give me away.
from lastyeargirl :
Michael Moore is through here on Thurday I think and I'm doing... something. I can't remember what. Maybe my assignment, which right now is nothing more than an excuse to listen to music by pretty dead boys.

Thanks, but I'm stuck in Somerfield til six o'clock on a Saturday and can't afford to buy books anyway *sigh*

The Bunnie's Picnic was about bunnies. Having a picnic. But I had a nightmare about it and have been scared ever since. I'd forgotten all about it until I saw it in Oxfam and had the weirdest flashback of my life. I rang Dad in hysterics...no wonder he thinks I'm on drugs...
from achren :
9 of 13! i suppose my book nerdiness does outweigh my dislike for scary things. and halloween? i'm doing the same thing as two years ago (since i didn't have halloween last year, really). you spend $75 on a corset, you gotta get some wear out of it, i suppose. and i can't afford the knee-high white boots to be emma frost...xo.m.
from straysparrow :
Our group had a place like that as well. Dark and smokey, a hole in the wall (to say the least). The owners decided to renovate to make it nicer and turned over the staff... it was never the same after that. Sparrow.

just missed you on AIM...rats! they're actually not a couple, apparently...bummer stellastarr* didn't open for 'em at your show...

Sadder revelation of the day - am now throwing my phone across the computer barn after one too many "unsupported content type" messages. I need a life. Or a permanent Internet connection through the back of my head... See you tomorrow. Migraine permitting I'm going to actually go to sub-editing so I should be in Glasgow around 4-ish... x

How is Western Europe in mid-November through early Decemeber? Freezing? Pouring rain? Locusts???
from glass-arcade :
I think it's because we can rant about the Church and Iraq but really we can't do much about it, but Pot Noodles? There's something we can go on about without having to keep thinking about the horrors of the world. Oh and alot of us did that song thing months ago, but I am toying with doing it again using a different band or perhaps Nick Drake..I'm quite bored after all.
from almostgoldsf :
now now. i am a food lover, not a food snob. i have just tended to avoid any food that comes alive by instantly adding water... i never even owned a chia pet for heavens sake! i *do* eat instant oatmeal though -- does that help? ;)
from disquiet :
You! Just made me spit coffee all over my monitor. Consumption, indeed. I'll bring a handkerchief! And I DO plan on being back in Glasgow, probably by the end of next year. Huzzah.
from glass-arcade :
damn guestbooks hmmph. Pot Noodles..ew ew and EW. I thought I had escaped them when I returned to the states but everyone at uni lived on Top Ramen which are exactly the same!!! Rymer loves the stuff but I havent had any (because its foul) since I got really really ill and D. made me eat Pot Noodles for a week since I couldnt eat much else. Even the sight of them makes me queasy.
from almostgoldsf :
I've never had a pot noodle... is it anything like a cup of soup? or top ramen? (I havent had either of those either...)

Oh, and bubble gun sellers are one of the things I miss most about Glasgow. I used to dance in the bubbles. All we get over here are Hare Krishnas and beggars.
from lastyeargirl :
Ah, suddenly last night's text makes so much more sense! I hadn't seen your note, damn this only-having-the-Internet-about-an-hour-a-day thing I have to live with right now, or I WOULD have phoned, so meh. And your linking that story did not upset me in the slightest, unless by "upset" you mean "very very angry". You should know that!

(stupid guestbooks) 6 out of 8 on that quiz, which as you know is downright astounding. and happy diaryland birthday. and california should be ashamed of itself. i left that out of my last night's post...i think i'm just not going to mention it and pretend it didn't happen. for awhile, anyway. sigh. xo.m.

I have six thousand dollars to my name and I am taking a "leave of absence" from school. So I have three months to decide on what I want to do, who I want to become, and yeah.

oh honey, hott works for me. <3 xo.

okay, yes—wholehearted to a fault. and i never learn. what's with that?
from dearedwin :
um, your guestbook's not working. but i'm sure in the end my entry will appear twice. hell, i'll put it here too: damn, someone already said "engaging." pft. okay then: aware. (and i'll take that explanation, by the way.)

from glass-arcade :
Ok the guestbook situation ins a pain in the arse!! To recap: Pink shirts: you are an adorable lad, a pink shirt on you would be pretty tasty. soul worth: My soul was pretty worthless, it said: Your soul is worth £8344. For your peace of mind, 80 percent of people have a purer soul than you. Battle cries: mine was "Lo! Who is that, running along the plains! It is Gwensarah, hands clutching a thorned whip! And with a cruel cry, her voice cometh:"By Odin's mighty spear, I lay waste to the landscape until Satan himself emerges from the pit to thank me!!!" Have a lovely weekend :)
from urban-faerie :
Thanks for the questions, that gives me something to write about tomorrow then. :D
from urban-faerie :
I want some please, even though I don't know if you read my diary much or will be able to think of some. I'll have some anyway though if I can. :D
from lastyeargirl :
Oh, go on then. I've been resisting the questions game for far too long. And yours will be good since you know me better than most. Apologies if this shows up in your guestbook too, I know you warned me :)
from glass-arcade :
I want five!!
from indie-anna :
naked lady swizzle sticks & vodka? yes, please. i'll give you the shirt off my back. <3 xo.
from indie-anna :
awww, why mr. dave, you make me blush. (hey, just a side note, today when you mentioned flotsam & jetsam it made me think of the little mermaid. remember ursula's eels? no? oh, uh... uhmm... yeah, me either. <3 xo.

Today I tried to set screaming childrens' heads on fire using the power of my mind. It didn't work, but I'm going to keep practicing. Someday, someday. Sigh.
from idiot-milk :
Generally I ignore the customers. Sometimes they complain, but when I describe the alternative (i.e. them being bludgeoned with their own limbs) they quiet down. And I think if people started giving me backrubs at work, I would be less crabby. I should suggest that at the next store meeting. It's really in everyone's best interest if I'm less crabby, I think.
from disquiet :
(Guestbooks = eternally screwy.) Thanks for the heads-up re: the layout, darlin'. And for putting GWB just one li'l layer of hell above Saddam. <3!

Oh, and don't think I didn't see that "case of the Mondays" nonsense. You will be punished for that, sir. Oh yes, yes you will. Case of the Mondays INDEED. Hmph.
from idiot-milk :
Signmyguestbook is exceedingly stupid today. Anyway, what I was TRYING to say... Yes, "papa bear" is absolutely just as bad as "moo juice." I'm surprised you haven't throttled the girl yet for it. You are clearly a man of heroic restraint.
from discobiscuit :
ok, i shall tell you a good book to read. well this depends on if you like writers from the beat generation. if you do, then you will love the book "the duty of civil disobedience" by Thoreau.
from indie-anna :
ohhh. wellll... i'd applaud you. ;) as for deflowering my guestbook however, i dunno... apparently there's a 99 cent fee to sign up, and you can only pay thru paypal, and my paypal account is totally fuct. i actually NEVER got a paypal account, and then one day, while trying to buy undergarments to die for, i discovered that something is royally screwy. and everytime i try to contact those bastards, i just get a generic e-mail in response. it's very frustrating. so now my guestbook is there to tease the world, as am i: you can look, but you can't touch. damn it. <3 xo.

Hi, sorry. For the late reply. I didn't even know you had a link page, thanks for linking me on it. I suppose I have sort of moved to lj, though officially I'm still both there and here. I just have so much less online time than I used to, etc etc... I don't know. Maybe a new username is in order.
from indie-anna :
yeth it wath the thong thing. <3 xo.
from lastyeargirl :
not helping.
from discobiscuit :
i've actually always wanted to read that book, but i haven't been able to find it anywhere cheap. i don't go to bookstores for books because they are rather expensive. but yeah reading about a dysfunctional family rather intrigues me. is it good?

ah well the girl on my page is a child star from the 50's. she starred in a movie called 'The Bad Seed.' which is about a little girl who appears to be sweet and innocent, but she really kills people and manipulates everyone into thinking she's some angel. good movie.

Tempting the temptress. And if I took you up on your offer?
from treedancer :
yep, i missed you too. knew you couldn't update but clicked anyways: my stupidity or habit? *grin. no, don't answer that... there's a glitch in the d/land matrix cos i tried to post this yesterday and it wouldn't let me: came from thisway's g/book to sign yours and it says "you can't sign in this fast" - it's done the exact same thing today - BAH. anyways, nice to see you are back.:)

None necessary. I had to leave my desk so I can get ready (which I'm not, yet) for brunch. Have a great weekend!
from opensecret :
I'm fine but there's a legal battle going on. It's making me want to run away, makes me wish I was a vagabond.
from la-negrita :
would you like to hear this? when i first began it, at the very first entry, i was planning on creating a little american girl to romance our lime. roughly based on myself, of course. and he was going to have this beautiful nabokovian/duras-esque affair with her. the first entry was supposed to foreshadow that. but then people started to like him, really really like him, and he was such a nice boy, and i just couldn't anymore. best always.
from indie-anna :
no,no,no. it's fine. :) you needn't erase it. not a big deal at all. as a general rule i don't think going out with yr co-workers is a BAD thing. but there's definitely a difference between work people & other people. i just happen to be weirded out around both. PARTY! ;) anyway... i'm shuttin' up now. later brutha. <3 xo.
from foosgold :
Try turning off al the radiators at the water flow control - always works here when the heating's fucked! That said though, my gran lit her parkray a couple orf days ago - I think it might be time for her yearly visit to the funny farm for a quick retune.
from straysparrow :
They say that vitamin E is good for the skin. We used to poke holes in the little gelcaps and put it directly on injuries to prevent scarring. Most other remedies I have heard of for skin (cammomile, aloe, progesterone) are for softening the skin... it seems that women are more more worried about being touchable than thickness of skin.

from indie-anna :
i was supposed to go to my friend's place for the final episode of america's next top model tonite, but she's lame & can't hang out. soooo... i have dubbed tonite offical take-care-of-dave's-business nite. i'm finishing a package to take to the post office tomorrow, ANNNNND i'm doing yr picture. for serious man. i mean it. i swear. ;) <3 xo.
from phonics :
It died due to the overwhelming amount of women who wanted to volunteer themselves to breed with me. No, honestly! Well, that or some unexplained glitch with the server - but which is the most likely? Mxx
from lastyeargirl :
Did I say that? I think not. And the day I changed Friendster pics I got some random naked guy messaging me right away. Still not enough to make me care though. When's your picture going up?
from lastyeargirl :
How about we just cancel out the one I owed you? ;)
from indie-anna :
yeah. i think having the internet at home makes it a little too extra easy for me to avoid humans altogether. i think that's bad. very bad. which is why i'm gettin' rid of it. & which is why my diary will probably die. :( but thanx for the concern, the head's fine thanx. ;) i hadn't had anything to drink in sooooo long, and i'm pretty sure i'm done with it completely now. i didn't have a hangover or anything lovely like that, but seeing what i wrote made my skin crawl. i HATE when people do that, and i've now become one of the morons i roll my eyes at. grrrreat. anyway... this is too long. i probably shoulda just e-mail you, yeah? oh well. ;) oooh! & p.s. i will have yr picture on friendster so so soon. :) <3 xo.
from opensecret :
The first book I read out loud to afternoon kindergarten was a Berenstain bears story. They were the it thing then. I apologize for the departure. I couldn't stand being away from all this literary goodness though. My fantasies consist of a Scottish mix tape extraordinare, a forty-year-old nanny from Chicago, an introverted Southern teenage girl, a fellow UK wonder, and a trendy Suburban teen all getting together on my back porch. Drinking mai tais. Spinning yarns.
from kymee :
I say bring on the lesbian references! The bad, well I already got into it with Murph about calling him the Ugly, you're not short, so that bad stays, regardless of your prior offenses, or lackthereof. I thought I wrote you a whole spiel about fireworks being illegal in Maine and Mass, but not in NH, so everyone would go over the border to buy them and then let them off illegally without every being caught. Oh, and South of the Border in North Carolina is this crass Mexican theme park jobby with fireworks up the wazzo. Anyone travelling south on 9 from about Virginia south will see signs all over the shop, and once you've driven by, the signs will tell you to turn around for about 500 miles. Fucking guestbook!
from indie-anna :
a kinda slutty grace kelly? yeah, i think i can deal with that comparison. here's to walking around wearing nearly nuthin'. ohh, & as soon as friendster isn't screwy, you'll have a pic. ;) <3 xo.
from kbaa :
you = rock.
from indie-anna :
okay. now it's my turn to pull an "i-don't-know-who-tammy-faye-is" - what is this carroll baker biznass? <3 xo.
from indie-anna :
par avion. my two favourite words. today i got a package full o'goodies. :) i lovvvve it!! <3 xo.
from treedancer :
*thankyou* for the note about the book and wine, and mostly the good wishes. i went! i saw! i conque...well, i had a good book ;)
from indie-anna :
;) there was no real reason for the tammy faye reference. i mean, really, it's TAMMY FAYE. i think that speaks for itself. i've decided to start doing my eye make-up like her's. oh! & i am so putting you to work. <3 xo.
from indie-anna :
oh oh oh & paul's boutique. for serious. <3 xo.
from opensecret :
It's like waiting for Christmas.
from indie-anna :
i want to know: the singing detective? ooooh. it would be so exciting if he was a spy. i can just see you decked out in suits and dark glasses, carrying out devious plans. yeeesssss. & baby, i can do any accent. <3 xo.
from la-negrita :
you were always one of my favorites. not necessarily as a diary to read but as a reader. and i was also the most wary of you - because you seemed in the same position i imagined him being in and i figured if anyone would call me out on being a fraud it would be you. best always.
from indie-anna :
ohhh, don't i know it. beards are sexxxeee. i've been tellin' the boys that for.ev.er. oh, and dave, you so should have shimmied up the drain pipe. it was a wild time. hahaha. <3 xo.
from dearedwin :
it just would've been much too obvious.

Have you ever seen Davey and Goliath? *Employs Goliath's voice* "I don't know, Davey..." (This has absolutely nothing to do with anything. I just wanted to say that once and for all before I forgot.)

very rarely do i lock my journal but once in a while i will -- username= neuroticaa, password=upthewall / <3

ohhhh dave, have i ever told you yr my fave? you are. <3 xo.
from pixie-cutter :
stumbled across your diary, and i'm glad I did, as it rocked my world. xox
from maralisa :
Well, hello to you also then ;)
from opensecret :
I got us lost. We also went through a fair amount of...physical exertion.
from how-i-lie :
Stupid mofo guestbook... Squeamish? Nah... Drop me an email if you so desire ;) Lola xx
from the10thfloor :
it's all yr's honey. get yr ass to chicago and i will dress you up in the cape & i'll put on the white dress & we'll abadon the tarzan theme, and and and... what would we do dressed as elvis impersonators? how's skydiving sound?
from opensecret :
Arab Strap, they were seductive yesterday yesterday. I have a question for you but it's rambly and incoherent and I think I'll have to think about it a little while.
from luminaryssh :
Tag! If you could have superhero powers, what powers would you have (up to five, don't be too greedy!)?
from opensecret :
You know I would kiss an envelope if it was an envelope from Scotland.
from opensecret :
Cigars. I’m nixing Freudian connotations and going straight for old man. It amuses me to see petite-sized, young woman chewing like elderly poker players on a thick cigar. Now, keep your mind out of the gutter and smoke one right in the face of those pseudo statues.
from the10thfloor :
mannn... if you've been there, done that, then get yr ass over here & help me. xo.
from the10thfloor :
you know, that's really funny... i walked in tonite & my roommate was watching charlies' angels, which i have never seen, and i came in right at some explosion where drew barrymore is walking and her hair is blowing and there's this firey explosion. she looked exactly the same as she did in firestarter. & you know what else? i started hating her when she got all hippy-dippy, peace, love, & butterflies. she should really stick to being bad & starting fires with her mind. it's so much cooler. ;) <3 xo.
from maralisa :
I'm sure it will be (or if not "good", productive at least) if only I disconnect this stupid Internet... I was looking for the Safe Harbor principles about an hour and a half ago and somehow lost track of time. Again. Oops :( You enjoy the rest of your weekend - I'm off to bore myself senseless some more *kisses*
from maralisa :
I would love to say "if they did that I would lose all faith in this country" - shame that happened sometime back in 2001 :/
from indie-anna :
you have(had) much more willpower than i. not even bo or daisy duke could get me to eat some things. xo.
from fussbudget :
Yeah, I watched part of it on cable on night, and I saw Bowie's cameo. Apparently it's out on DVD now with extra crap. I think I like Lynch in more of a conceptual way than an actual enjoyment of his work. I like the idea of him, but sometimes I find myself bored. And on a completely unrelated note -- my friends are playing in Glasgow next month. The Agenda. Go see them :)
from girlgenie :
you're great(ER) :)
from ladyvivien :
Ooops. Didn't mean to trouble you. Do accept my apologies...
from opensecret :
I love it when you spell favorite with a u.
from idiomatic :
stupid guestbook wouldn't let me sign again "that fast"... anyway... i can't really whistle for a cab, but i certainly can LISP for one. unfortunately it is not as effective as a hearty whistle. unless i follow it with a loud, "Asalaam Alaikum!" or "Inshallah!" or "TAXI!"
from dullthud :
That Forward Command Post is remarkable. Do you think they do G.I.Joe-scale maimed children, puppet governments and rape victims?
from opensecret :
I'm grateful for your kind words. And no, I can't imagine the world without you either.
from maralisa :
I hate puppies. No, really, I do. I guess I'm abnormal ;) Anyway, better head off home.. speak to you soon.
from maralisa :
well don't look at me... I already have to empty my mother's ash trays... *makes sick face*
from maralisa :
uhhhm... cause i need someone to brush my hair for me?
from straysparrow :
The guy who discovered the SARS virus (who was from the level 4 containment facility in Winnipeg I believe) just succumbed to the illness and died as well. Torontonians are quick to panic in times of trouble (they called in the army for a snowstorm once... the rest of the country giggled quietly). But this time they might not be too far off.
from straysparrow :
And I guess now it is my turn to thank you for adding me to your favorites. Thanks. Sparrow
from opensecret :
Well, I compromised. I didn't ask, but I didn't sell the tickets. I went with a friend. Jesus, my boss just came up to me and shouted, "What is this? DIARYLAND?" Minimize, minimize, minimize.
from straysparrow :
Sorry discodave... I wish I could say that green beer was just an expression. Alas, it is not. When I was a bartender back in the day they had us adding green dye to any beverage they could think of on St. Patty`s Day. But from my experience, it is only the lower brow places that fall prey to that whimsy (which says alot about my previous employers I guess). Sparrow
from opensecret :
I was simultaneously groaning and smiling madly after reading your note. (If that is at all possible.) I have an unlimited supply of self-deprecation but bravery, on the other hand, does not seem to store well. But thank you for pushing me. It’s just that it’s one of those things…Easier said than done.
from indie-anna :
what. theee. HELL!? NAH!!??! are you crazy? <3 xo.
from ozrockchic :
You mean to say Scots don't all sound like John Hannah? I am heartbroked. Meanwhile, have you ever heard a drunk Australian try to construct a sentence? That's the least-eloquent you can ever get.
from misstrish :
Bloody guestbook. I can't feel my legs and I'm listening to a dude complaining that he can't get into his account - to bet on a horse race. Nice.
from ozrockchic :
Hey, maybe we could do an exchange? I've always wanted to go to Scotland, maybe you could learn to like Australia as a travel destination, and we could just take over each others lives for a while. :D
from indie-anna :
and what's wrong with that? so long as i'm mickey. and preferably scat singing. ;) gotta go to work now!! arrggghhh!! annnnndddddd - i have no idea what i'm doing for the class i teach tomorrow nite!!! AHHHH!!! okay okay. sorry. i'm a bit of a crack head right now. ;) <3 xo.
from foosgold :
Me? Kind? Naaah. You got the wrong person there!
from foosgold :
And I live for your updates, o Scottish One! They brighten my day! Seriously. :)
from foosgold :
I know what you mean about depressing - my buddylist has a distinct lack of red these days, even when it's working. But I'll be staying put until I can afford a domain of my own and figure out how to use the devil's software that is Greymatter!
from indie-anna :
i know! it's a damn shame ain't it? i'm trying to get my gold thing back, but we're having "issues". don't worry - they'll be back & betta than eva'. hahaha. :) xo.
from foosgold :
I've given up on finding an easy way. Shit. And this template was supposed to have been finished by the end of today.
from maralisa :
hee hee! you must have walked right past me :p
from maralisa :
mmm, okay. my computer's in the modd for acting up again and won't let me read your diary. but i was just thinking how sometimes i wish i could make everything all better for you. would probably best start with me being awake when you text me, eh? ;) (427 words - go me!)
from maralisa :
I had thought of that... damn us being poor. Did I tell you I'm working on Tuesday monring before uni? *makes sick face* Well, you have fun anyway...
from maralisa :
Is it not the end of February? Not that i could afford it anyway, or have anyone to go with.
from maralisa :
username=passport, password=control xx
from maralisa :
I noticed. Calm, sweetheart. Everything's going to be fine xx
from opensecret :
Oh! I love packages.
from misstrish :
Bah! Damn guestbook won't let me harass you. But, as I said there - you've just updated your diary, does that mean, heaven forbid that we're in the net cafe at the same time? *looks around*
from opensecret :
I sent you an email. [email protected], right? spamalicious stuff awaits you
from allumeuse :
Only when I've cause, and good ones, too. Such is the way of unrequited crap. I feel that anything besides serenading with Cheap Trick would be okay...
from maralisa :
well, likewise. I'm just eating grapes and minding my own business :p
from indie-anna :
REMINDS. not remind. sorry - that just really bugs me. ;) haha
from indie-anna :
alright. it's a deal. and i'll show you mine - which usually consist of burnt vinyl edges, crumpled up pieces of paper, and other fun stuff like that. the elvis thing however, will force me to bust out the dazzling craftmanship. which remind me - i have so much work to do. arrggghhhh. <3 s.
from maralisa :
You never missed much anyway - yet another show trying to hard to be the X-Files, back when it was still cool to do so, and failing miserably. But I watched it anyway cause it meant I could stay up late on a school night.
from opensecret :
Geeks revolt. I actually have favorite photographers (that one's Robin Lynne Gibson) and most of the favorites are that austere. Oh, and I miss vinyl too. Except I'm too young to truly miss it so I missed the chance to miss vinyl. If that makes any sense.
from indie-anna :
yr right about that. home definitely does not feel like home - especially when yr family lives in a state & house that has never housed you before. it's WEIRD. ;) i hope you have a happy new year, and i hope yr next one is spent with allll the right people. heehee you know who i'm talkin' bout. :) <3 xo.
from shesarainbow :
and a lovely secular gift-giving holiday to you. i'm feeling much better now; hope your days have been as good to you as mine have to me. oh, and if you ever feel the need to jump ship for the shark-infested waters of livejournal, let me know and i will give you a code. ciao, sarah xo
from indie-anna :
i'm all for it, m'man. and us being worshipped - it sounds about right. amen and amen. happy christmas. :) <3 xo.
from shesarainbow :
I'm perfectly all right, I've just moved my semi-regular scribblings to Livejournal. No reason, really, other than that I wanted to have a minimalistic red and white design. Thanks for your concern. http://www.livejournal.com/users/backtomono
from kymee :
I thought so but didn't want to say anything, I mean she was there and you could've meant the east coast of Oz.
from glitterscars :
Thanks love. But having thought long and hard (and costing the store several hundred pounds in voids as my mind was elsewhere) I think I'm just going to move. Long and certainly over-reacting story, but I just can't be "Ellie" any more.
from idiomatic :
nope, benett from LA. here: http://www.epitonic.com/artists/benett.html
from girlypop :
Hi. Thanks for reading my diary and letting me know about "bookworms" (my intended name!!!!) Maybe we could try reviving it? I would be very interested in helping out... Btw, I LOVE your diary. xxx
from glitterscars :
Exactly... you've known me for how long, and I still haven't started it?!
from glitterscars :
I'm stuck with the notes now, aren't I... of, I haven't even started. Essays first, then I'm going to write my dissertation in three months after Christmas. Think it can be done? Me neither.
from solarlab :
i was in matt goss' first solo release video. called "the key." how is that for random? there is more to that story but we'll get to that one day over coffee.

Are you sure it's really your sister and not a Pod Person from the Planet Mars?
from diotoir :
Twins! Aieeee! Check under their beds next time you stay in the same house as them, and make sure there are no illegal weapons stashed away...
from diotoir :
Lucky you! I have to see my sister again this weekend, and even an advancing umpteenth pregnancy hasn't mellowed her out.
from diotoir :
Ouch... sounds like we both know some Psycho Loonies From Hell.
from diotoir :
It wasn't a metaphor, Dave. My sister held a machete to my throat when I was 18 and she was 16. My sis was, and still is, a fucking psycho.
from glitterscars :
but but but... when I clicked on your site meter thingy to check, it said I was 20000 on my second visit! oh well. I'll just be satisfied with the guestbook thing *grumble*
from allumeuse :
Huh-uh. Recently, there was Secretary, tres film noir, with the sleepy-eyed Maggie Gyllenhaal. The creepy-smiled Mr. Spader was spankeriffic in it.
from glitterscars :
but then I decided I wanted to be 20000 as well, because I haven't done anything of note today...
from elliemulder :
logged in as someone else for a necessary font change and i'm not even going to bother with the guestbook: i warned you i was lost today...
from glitterscars :
you mean I have to meet you? *distressed* :p
from phonics :
Having been with a few mummies I can tell you they don't come cheap. And usually have baggage. Signmyguestbook has decided to stop spam by letting you post once every hour or so with the same IP. I have emailed those responsible and they have ignored me accordingly. Mxx
from starsforarms :
great place you have here...x
from indie-anna :
there was no meeting of the boy on this trip. butttt... there WAS punk rock karaoke. unfortunately, i'm a chicken just like you & molly (heehee), and i just couldn't get up there. besides, i wouldn't do hit me with yr best shot justice without my sweat band/headband.
from glitterscars :
Nope, just about to leave uni. Perhaps you have another stalker, you lucky thing!
from glitterscars :
I know - me just being silly pixiegirl. Note conversations are so much less fun than guestbook conversations *pout*
from glitterscars :
Surely if your bungalow didn't have floors you'd fall anyway? *confuzzled*
from indie-anna :
changed it has. i'll hafta e mail it to you when i find yr e mail address as a complete psycho started IMing me obsessively because of my diary. i am now in pseudo-hiding. ;)
from glitterscars :
Never! I'll always remember the little people who got me where I am today, and stuff...
from glitterscars :
You know I only said it so you would tell me I *was* a Diaryland goddess, of course ;) I'm eating southern fried chicken and it's burning the roof of my mouth off *wail*
from glitterscars :
Apparently so, they were all working this morning anyway. Evil conspiracy... I got over 100 hits the last two days so I think that's bumped me up a little, or you may be right, they may have lost a few months. Not that I'm a hit-whore or anything...
from glitterscars :
My sitemeter's gone weird too - my average has jumped overnight from 60 (yesterday) to 96 (this morning). Oh well. I'm going to tell myself it's not a glitch, it's just that I'm a diary goddess. Or something.
from indie-anna :
i have NO IDEA what i'm going to sing. heehee. :) i'm not even sure which nite i'm going. i'll be with a bunch of fashion kids, and sadly, none of them like that sort of thing. when you tune in, just look for the coolest looking girl there who's all by herself. that'll be me. well. it will. i am. :)
from girlgenie :
<3feeling connected.
from kymee :
Dave, my heart's breaking for you pet. I hate to see two people apart who obviously want to be so very much together. Long distance relationships hoover serious rushmore arse, but if you can get through this, think of all that awaits you (hopefully not some man who's sweat makes you gag - wait, that was me).
from glitterscars :
I think I killed your guestbook... oops. Damn having a computer in the front room,y mum wants to know what I'm laughing at...
from indie-anna :
but sooooooo yummy, don'tcha think?
from indie-anna :
you weren't rude at all. i was just on my way out & decided to give you the 411 on the suzanne factor/fluffer drummer thing. that's all. we cool. ;)
from indie-anna :
hahaha. you. slay. me. thanx. you always make me laugh. :)
from kymee :
Maybe if you weren't so lazy and just typed kymee.signmyguestbook.com (easy peasy lemon squeezy) as I fuffed up the link when I added something - ooooooh bite me!
from achren :
i am beginning to notice an interesting trend in certain guestbooks - yours and my friend bistromath's, at the very least - a distinct off-balanceness in the ratio of male to female note-leavers. you, m'dear, appear to be a VERY popular fellow. xo.m.
from pipi7 :
writing messages to people I don´t know always leaves me feeling a bit odd, but the part about sitting on a fire escape, or roof, that hit home, a dream I also have-damn great movies for giving me dreams, thank them too. Oh and thanks to the previous signer---"macho macho man..." I wish the villiage people would migrate out of my head! Anyways,I like your journal!mine at the moments sucks and I´m loosing tough with the english language it seems. *Dana
from zaziel :
Don't worry, I'm not visualizing you as a Village Person. I just hear them singing "Macho Man" whenever I see your name. Feel free to suggest a different soundtrack.
from kymee :
HA! You quoted Travis on your favourites!!
from zaziel :
I'm late with this, but anyway.... My parents, all four of them, were very faithful to vinyl. Except for my mother's short flirtation with 8-track tapes, which were a mystery of my childhood, because the mater kept the tapes long after the player had bit the dust. Books, of course, are eternal. I found the Bookworms thru your journal. I've located the two books they're reading, but I don't know if I'll have time to take a part in the discussions. And I was sure the carpet in Help! was real grass.... When was Astroturf invented, I wonder?
from mckay68 :
You're such a sweetheart...:"babylove". Did you know we're running neck and neck, numbers of entries-wise? Anyway - thanks for your signing recently, cheered me up! XO K

i'll take the soup, minus the chicken, but throw in a gremlin or two. thanx. ;) achooo!

Why don't you hurry up and get yahoo messenger, eh?

I know a guy who claims to keep his mohican up just with soap, but maybe he's lying and uses wella stuff...and that just isnt punk...As for the Fran Healey thingies it seems that half the males in the country have been attacked by them recently....bleh.
from whatgoeson :
please, PLEASE write me inappropriate e-mails--especially during my work hours, so i can have a laugh during the day. you're just great.
from athenex :
noticed that you have belle and sebasian listed. I got 'fox in the snow' over the net of this guy i met on irc,.and you listing them made me think of him... by the way: nice diary! :)
from astronautm :
Loved the site with the trepanning article on it. Trepanning? Yeah like i need that like i need another hole in the head. (Sorry)
from kymee :
Good diarytag entry Dave!
from muse-ling :
No one tires of feeling pleased.... I'm glad you are. Thank you, site-meter - 'ac.uk' was somewhat of a giveaway.
from indie-anna :
ahhh. i love you almost as much as i love myself. you fucking crack me up.
from indie-anna :
ahhh. i love you almost as much as i love myself. you fucking crack me up.
from diarytag :
you needed to add yourself the the members' list under the edit/delete entries. i went ahead and did it. make sure you are part of the topica list or you wont be able to find out when you are tagged. if you have any questions, email me at [email protected]!
from astronautm :
I think Mr Clarke lives in Sri Lanka. Unsavoury speculation continues to dog him.
from schizogirl :
whats man bites dog? is that really a movie? thats the coolest title to anything ive ever heard.
from indie-anna :
it's about time you put me in there. ;) see ya later. :)
from kymee :
Yeah Dave - just how *old* are you anyway?
from astronautm :
I didn't mean i think your diary is bloody appalling. I meant i like your diary.
from astronautm :
Yup, jury's definitely still out on the Scooby Doo movie. I suspect it will be bloody appalling. Like the diary.
from mckay68 :
May I inquire as to your age? (I hope that isn't rude; forgive me if it is) xo K

from ghostfox :
Thankyou, and Merry Christmas to you too :)
from space-oddity :
i have five channels, and that's only because our antenna isn't quite as much as a complete piece of shit as we thought it was, so i don't see any of that stuff, either. we get colin's mom to tape shows; she sends them to us in the mail. when it came time to decide on cable, we opted for the cable modem (no cable t.v. -that would have meant an extra $100 a month). bleh. i miss the learning channel (tlc). i'm obsessed with this one show; it's called trading spaces . . like bbc's changing rooms, but that's for another day . . .
from space-oddity :
i'm just glad that i found you.
from space-oddity :
in my anthro class last year, there was a tall, lanky man with long silvery hair. he wore a denim jacket. crazy, beady little eyes. we called him bob. one day, i had this brilliant idea to bring a camera to class, but he skipped that day, and he skipped every class after that. coincidence? yeah, probably so. the class was shit anyways, loads of people withdrew. i just wish i could have gotten a photo or that i could have said a few words to him. i wanted him to scare the hell out of me.
from tinkagrrl :
Bwahahaha .. loved the "Do I look like a charity? No, can't be since Dubya hasn't bombed me yet" comment.
from tinkagrrl :

update April 6, 2020: Sorry, we just had 8+ hours downtime due to a server problem. Restoring from backups took soooo long, but everything is back and no data was lost. Ay yay yay! Anyhow, hope everyone is well with the virus stuff.
