from dangerspouse :
Just wanted to wish you a happy 2016, and let you know people still think of you :)
from dangerspouse :
I'll miss you. I enjoyed reading your stuff. Good luck to you, wherever the emu takes you.
from whystinger :
I never learned HTML, so i struggle with it...
from dangerspouse :
If nothing awesome happens, do what I do: make something up. The internet won't mind, and you'll have the pride that comes with knowing you've contributed to the entertainment of us all. You can do this!
from dangerspouse :
Woo hoo! I'll set out the guest spork and wash the corgi in anticipation of your arrival. (And "wash the corgi" is not a euphemism, btw.) :)
from dangerspouse :
Malbec?! Argentina's revenge! I'm impressed you survived.
from melissa1983 :
You're back too! Yeah I'm trying to get back into writing. It's sad that diaryland and livejournal have become so dead, and everyone I used to follow has moved on and stopped writing. I've had this thing since 2001. I can't abandon it. lol.
from dangerspouse :
Welcome back - congrats on the marriage! Not thrilled to hear you're not sleeping around anymore, but waddaya gonna do. Not all stories have happy endings. Looking forward to seeing more from you!
from flicka :
Hey, just thinking about ya and wondering how you were doing. I'm working at a department store and married now. Lots of stuff I have not written about that I should. I miss you Emu
from mangofarmer :
Hello emu. Your new blog pleases me. The end.
from freaketta :
I still read your diary. definitely post a new link.
from melissa1983 :
I still read your diary! I think you definitely should post the link to your new one if you get one because I would still like to read it!
from flicka :
I'm at the laundry mat doing my bag of laundry....more like 5 trashbags full. Trashbags....they're less classy than laundry bags or laundry baskets.
from flicka :
I'm in a new phase of life....more honest and less paranoid. Not honest in the sense that I lied in my journal, but honestly trying to understand myself and how I affect others. Hope you are okay. I'll be reading you again.
from flicka :
I came back and unlocked my diary....I'll be reading and writing
from daath :
Breaking up a relationship through the mere act of existing is impressive. I would get a small ego boost if I wasn't particularly tied to either of the parties. Emu on.
from alienamiss :
Heyy.. nice new layout! (This is dino-o.)
from mangofarmer :
*pats my favorite serious Canadian on the head*
from mangofarmer :
Aww, yay Canada won. I am glad for you, dearest emu. And I have to say that Canada is so cute I just want to pat it on the head. Hehehehe dancing beavers.
from mangofarmer :
Emu. I have emerged from underneath a rock (and/or my self-banishment from facebook) to say that I have just observed that USA and Canada are playing for the gold medal in hockey tomorrow. As an American, I care nothing about hockey. I just felt the need to tell you. I hope you'll still talk to me. Heh.
from melissa1983 :
Woot! Glad to hear things with the cute emo are going well. I hope it works out for you. I am team Cute Emo! :D
from mangofarmer :
Well damn, emu, I hope your mom is okay. Parents and hospitals do not go well together. I can say that from personal experience. *hug*
from mangofarmer :
Just say NO to retail hell!!!
from flicka :
I might be working again soon......
from illumiknitti :
Hi there. I used to be beatpoetgrrl, and then I became notanias (which I totally forgot about), and now I'm illumiknitti, which I hope will stick. Feels good to be back in D-land, come look me up!
from mangofarmer :
My toilet was broken for about ten years. As in, you had to reach in to the tank at the back to flush it. Lo and behold, one day Cousin Bobo came along and rigged up a paperclip. Now it can be flushed in the normal manner. Awesome.
from mangofarmer :
Family from Scotland, eh? Any hot kilt-wearing cousins?
from mangofarmer :
Wait... an 8-4 M-F job with no customer service whatsoever?! I want one! I don't suppose you have to talk on the phone to tell people what to do if their dog has fleas either, do you? :-P
from dinosaurorgy :
I forgot that you had me on your list. Send me your email addy, and I'll give you the keys.
from mangofarmer :
Awww. Emu is my favorite.
from beautigirl :
Seriously? He can't understand the two weeks yes and two weeks no thing? Haha, that's what I call it, even though the first week is yucky. The morning after pill should be a last, last resort thing. It made me throw up a lot. And yes, I'll still keep reading, even after leaving d-land. I just don't have the energy to write anymore. And you know what's weird? I am also moving back out on my own, at least you have a room mate this time. Hurray for freedom, lol. Ciao
from flicka :
:) I love your energy. Dentistry, huh? I'd definitely like to have you writing about everyone's dental hygiene practices :)
from flicka :
I'm even like Capital City Guy. He seems to brighten up your life. I have a friend who used to call me crying and telling me what a good friend I was....it soon dawned on me that anyone who does that is on cocain (esp. if it's after 3 a.m.)....
from flicka :
I want to be called some form of lovely--lovely lady is pretty good and he's "marked" you like you're his kitten by making you a possession. Unfortunately, my heart stears me towards people who have bad behaviors and I learn bad behaviors easily now (I was strong until I was 26), who make me feel week when I am strong, and I've not been able to let go of the last guy....we'll call him frozen slurpy man. Oh, I'm supposed to die in 2054 so be nice to me :) Hope your weekend goes superwell.
from mangofarmer :
Yeah. Just say no to drugs. And by drugs I mean Texty. Oy vey.
from flicka :
Love your secret coding for names! Casey casem is still around? Wow? I need to sleep.
from mangofarmer :
Yay for quitting! Now I want some chips. I've never heard of that kind. Bah. I might have to settle for some habanero Doritos. I don't normally care for Doritos, but damn those are tasty.
from mangofarmer :
Yay genealogy! It's my favorite nerdly hobby.
from mangofarmer :
Heh. I think my 87 year old arthritic grandmother with cataracts and a bum hip could take me in a fight. Well, okay maybe not so much her, but yeah you probably could. :) *new job finding good luck vibes*
from mangofarmer :
Emu, if you don't take a cab on that Saturday you have to work at 7, I'm afraid I'm just going to have to beat you up. Nobody needs to be walking an hour and a half anywhere at 5:30 on a Saturday morning!
from omniscia :
Hey, I just noticed your icon on your profile page. Is that from the old Oregon trail computer game? I used to love that thing! I used to give the members of the wagon party names of people in school that I hated, and then I would set the wagon at grueling pace with no food, and watch them all wipe out. Did I mention that I was 13 at the time and full of angst? :D Glad to see someone else remembers that game. -Keri
from mangofarmer :
Mmm, sushi. Had some myself just this afternoon.
from flicka :
I'm paying $.35/min to read you! I'm in San Diego, and I believe Oprah when she says that "god has a better dream for me than I do!" Or something. Anyhow, I missed you!
from mangofarmer :
Amen!
from mangofarmer :
I just wanted to say I'm still really glad you have succumbed to the awesomeness that is Harry Potter. Also, I'm really glad you don't work retail anymore. You've given hope to the rest of us... although I might be marching right back to the mally-mall here soon unless a miracle happens. *sigh* Anyway, got any danishes left for me?
from princessreva :
How the heck does one get to the point where they want to punch Anne in the face??? You have me totally befuddled!!
from mangofarmer :
Also, I can understand about wanting to punch Anne of Green Gables in the face. I would be all like, "Hello, Gilbert loves you and YOU LOVE HIM. Idiot." Heh. Yes hi I'm a nerd.
from mangofarmer :
Yes! Another Harry Potter bandwagon-jumper. Yay!
from mangofarmer :
YAY! Congratulations! :-D
from beautigirl :
Biggest congradulations for the new job! Sounds like itís not a full-time position or is that just how the hours work? Iím surprised at how long you stuck it out with retail though. They might just have to close down the store with the amount of people leaving, but thatís happening everywhere here too. Good luck with everything. Hopefully youíll get more ďcongradulationĒ notes. -Jenna
from mangofarmer :
Ooooh, not retail! Good luck on your interview!
from mangofarmer :
*hug*
from mangofarmer :
Moving is scary. However, it was funny that I moved to Gradschoolville kicking and screaming, and moved back here kicking and screaming.... hmmmm. Anyway. *hugs*
from mangofarmer :
Well, you'd better be. Otherwise I'd have to come over there and beat you up. And that's a damn long walk. *hug*
from mangofarmer :
Emu? You ok? I... I... worry about my favorite Canadian, you know! *squeak*
from pink-circle :
*The Circle of the Phoenix* Hi, I'm Phoenix, and I'd like to personally invite you to join The Circle; a writers' and artists' group for diaryland members. It's a public journal, so that anyone can post to it, but members have profiles on the site, as well as critiques, and once promoted to Apprentice have buttons to show off their achievements on their site. I hope you don't take this as spam, you can just delete this message if you're not interested, but if you are, please visit our welcome page: http://pink-circle.diaryland.com/welcome3.html -- Thanks for your time -- Atara Phoenix
from mangofarmer :
Ooooh, Big City. That sounds exciting. Go emu!
from flicka :
Good Lord you are funny. The slut line did it for me. I'm super-depressed and re-reading some of the journal entries. Sorry for "overnoting."
from flicka :
I like how in your favorite diaries, you give a sentence from their journal. I like the last one you added with the person ripping the handle out of the other person's hand. LOL when I needed it. I'm trying to stay sanity-filled.
from flicka :
HEy :) You're sounding like me when I start to loose it at a job. Nothing is permanent and this horrible feeling might be growing inside, but remember it'll shrink back down. I missed reading you, but my GD computer was stolen!
from melissa1983 :
I just don't want you to get hurt if something happens. I really did not mean to offend you with that comment. It came out differently than I had intended it to. I'm sorry.
from melissa1983 :
Oh my....you're kinda turning into a stalker with this guy.
from omniscia :
Hi Emu. I've locked my diary. If you want to read it, the user name is omniscia and the password is decide. -Keri
from mangofarmer :
Awww, I love you man. Possibly because you seem to have the same "I hate people but I really don't" thing I have. *sigh*
from melissa1983 :
I believe they are called Tums? What are you doing? I thought you were better than all of that. I know we don't really know each other that well, but from what I've read lately I'm becoming quite concerned. :P
from melissa1983 :
A late period could mean a number of things. Sometimes it's caused by stress, and from what I've read in your journal your job seems to give you a lot of that. I was looking around on facebook and it appears that your Bam knows quite a few of the same people I do here in Barrie.
from beautigirl :
You wanna do something? You can do my homework!
from beautigirl :
Oh my Gaaaaawd! I joined that facebook thing too just recently. I curse it for eating up much of my time. You can even join these common interest groups as well. The old layout of the website was better. Funny how they changed it a day after I just joined just to mess me up.
from mangofarmer :
Hey now, you're only young once. ;) Go emu!
from mangofarmer :
I bought some granola bars yesterday. I thought of you. :)
from mangofarmer :
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to youuu! Happy Birthday dear emuuuuuuu, Happy Birthday to you!!! YAY!
from mangofarmer :
Wow, I'm going to die alone too! Let's die alone together! Er, wait...
from mangofarmer :
Emu! Wow, you're famous. Who does one bitch to to get on TV? I want to be on TV! Except not really. But yay for Emu!
from sketty :
If you're up to it, perhaps alternative (meaning no doctors at ALL) therapies such as yoga might help you control your anxiety. When you have a panic attack your breathing changes and you don't get enough oxygen to your brain - yoga can help you control your breathing, PLUS it makes you really bendy :) ...just throwing a thought into the pit
from mangofarmer :
Ohmygourd. I hate doctors too. I even hate the fake doctors- the campus health center kind, who take one look at your snot-nosed, plague-ridden self and ask if you're pregnant. Um, no. Gah!
from mangofarmer :
I'll offer you a job! You can be my agent and find gigs for me! I'll pay you in those Quaker square thingies! :)
from flicka :
It's quotes like this that keep me coming back! "Holy hell, I actually slept in this morning until about 10 minutes ago. I think the last time I managed to sleep in past about 8:30 or so was... well, never. Or at least so long ago that I can't remember. So I'm quite impressed. I'm also impressed with how I still feel like absolute crap, despite this."
from flicka :
right back at ya!
from mangofarmer :
Awwwww, emu. I have faith in you. That's all that matters. ;)
from flicka :
Thank you for posting often. I always laugh. Poor yo Poor :)
from mangofarmer :
I think congratulations are in order. ;)
from flicka :
Tell her. Don't even think about it. Quit mulling over it and tell her that it's not going to work out. Firmly. Roommate situations can start to really suck.
from sillycake :
Thanks for joining the diary ring! =D
from sillycake :
Hey there! I saw that you took my survey and that you said you love tea. I have a tea lover's diary ring, if you'd like to join! =)
from flicka :
and I got fired and wanted/loved that ^&*)*& job. I lost friends too. :*( I want someone to sit me down and tell me how wonderful I am. I guess when you don't want something "they" can smell it and don't want to loose you, but if you like/need the damned job they fire your ass!
from mangofarmer :
*giggles at drunken emu* Yay!
from mangofarmer :
Speed! Yes! Start speed! I'll do the same! Then every sentence can end with an exclamation point!
from mangofarmer :
Eeeeek. I hope you find a new place soon. Scary red liquid dripping from the ceiling is not my idea of fun. Yikes-o-rama.
from beautigirl :
Yeah, alcohol does some crazy things to people. It can be a dangerous thing. I've got an interesting story about new years bashes as well.
from mangofarmer :
Go emu! It sounds like you had fun. ;)
from mangofarmer :
*kicks 2006 to the curb* Happy New Year. emu darling!
from omniscia :
Just my two cents, but moving back into the basement will be a lot worse... I'm a former "Cellar-Dweller" myself ;), and the worst thing in the world was not having sunlight streaming in... You don't know whether it's night or day down there. My depression got a lot worse. Anyway, I hope things get better for you. 2007 can only get better, right? (I keep trying to convince myself of that, too.)
from mangofarmer :
Mmmm, chai latte with gold dust. :)
from mangofarmer :
Ah yes. I'm quite fond of my cheese + knife + thumb scar myself.
from mangofarmer :
My cat pees on my bed every once in a while. Luckily I'm the only one that is affected by that, so no harm done. Anyway, I still like you.
from beautigirl :
Awe, poor kitties. Here's hoping you get to see them for the hollidays, although if my cats decided to use any part of the floor as their litter box, I would be thinking the same way as your parents. Nice one by pouring boiling water on yourself. I gotta say I haven't really done that yet, but I have poured hot coffee on my leg which didn't stay red very long. Instead if I feel like KD I just whip up some easy mac that goes in the microwave. Yeah, its the lazy way but it works. Anyway, don't work too hard.
from mangofarmer :
Gah. So stress makes you gain weight? That explains a lot. Gaaaah. Is Xmas over yet?
from mangofarmer :
Someone needs to create a "Which 80s hair metal song are you?" quiz. For real. I think I would probably be "Every Rose Has its Thorn" by Poison, because it's so silly and melodramatic, just like me.
from flicka :
Holy Christ! Good for you--no one feels 100 percent (at least not frequently!). I'm hating my work for the first time in a long time. I swear a lot, and that's a sign that I'm not doing well....
from flicka :
How does one get Google hits? I'm sitting here not working and eating gormet spaghettios (just add a piece of Havarti cheese in and you're golden!).
from mangofarmer :
*is I-don't-know-ing with you*
from mangofarmer :
Yes, I agree with Reva. Elaborate on this museum thing!
from princessreva :
were you hiding in the museum, or did they let you stay there? You rebel you!!
from flicka :
Missed you. I've been on hiatus or something spelled like that for a while. Things get better, unless they don't, but most of the time it's going to be okay!
from desiree655 :
i wanted to drop a line.. started reading your blog again after dropping it for a bit.
from mangofarmer :
Yikes, emu. It sounds like you were almost blown away to Oz or something. I'm glad you weren't. :)
from mangofarmer :
Anne of Green Gables!!!! I've been meaning to reread those for quite a while now.
from beautigirl :
Oh I don't blame you for not wanting to work on boxing day, though its my favourite day to shop. Hopefully you get out of it.
from sketty :
Heck, if you think the same as I do then you may very well be MY new hero!! Good to discover you Emu-head
from flicka :
hehehe. u are still making me laugh with no sleep for 3 out of 5 days this week.
from mangofarmer :
The coffee emporium doesn't take American $100s either, and we're in America, heh. It's bad enough when people want to pay for their $1.29 coffee with a $50 first thing in the morning. Bastards.
from mangofarmer :
*hugs the emu* So there aren't any jobs in Nutty McShitville? Because everyone deserves to be in a place where they can be joyful. I miss Gradschoolville, in that respect. *sigh* *more hugs*
from flicka :
Man, I LOVE that olive colour. They have retro pieces, but I want the old one. Sorry your work sucks.
from flicka :
Too funny....coke, in soda form, up your nose!
from flicka :
You read some of the same folks I read :) Excellent taste my friend. I like the exerpts from each diary as the description. Cool
from mangofarmer :
Emu! I just realized something (again me with my slowness about Canadaland). You have to work on your Thanksgiving? That sucks. Poor emu.
from flicka :
I missed the Emu :) glad to be back!
from beautigirl :
Wow, your lucky to get a laptop that fast. I had to wait a week for my pay cheque to get one. It sure felt like the longest week of my life. It even took me a couple of days to get all the programs I wanted on it. Enjoy your new laptop!
from mangofarmer :
Ohmygourd I had a customer like that once at Sizzears. Freaking out because of a little black dot in a red wool coat. I had to explain to her it was part of the material. She still returned the coat anyway. Gaaaah.
from flicka :
Good luck to your knees. I'm having my 3rd eye squeejeed (sp?) clean. Maybe lazer surgery?
from mangofarmer :
You and your walking, emu. You're awesome. I guess we did establish that taxis are not an option? But then again, you're the emu, so you don't need them anyway... uh, yeah, or something. Anywho, glad you get to go home for a visit.
from princessreva :
I don't comment to you either but I am a crazed loyal follower as well. Thanks for the well wishes, and thanks for posting regularly, unlike me. I am more bored than you can imagine here, and I can always count on some Emu action! Merci!
from mangofarmer :
Woohoo! Happy Half Birthday!
from flicka :
You continue to e-muse me :) I haven't felt good about a make-up/dress up outfit in 3 months. Even my black nail polish isn't doing anything for me! Take care and keep writing please!
from flicka :
Do you know that if I didn't write about my job and boys that I hope will like me, I'd have nothing to talk about. I wish I had more to say. I'm a little embarrassed....
from flicka :
You're a trooper.
from mangofarmer :
At least you have your own apartment/den of emu-ness? That's pretty cool anyway. *hugs*
from mangofarmer :
Do they have taxis in your town? I thought about walking home from work once (it's 2+ miles through the sketchy part of town, no less). But then I was like, mehhh. Anywho, be careful, emu dear. Argh I have to work Monday too. And tomorrow. And Tuesday. And I worked today. Argh argh argh.
from flicka :
Yeah, I'd love to sleep again.
from marysensei :
Keep on truckin'. Gotta pay the bills and all that rot;)
from mangofarmer :
Hahahaha that's funny. I guess we Americans enjoy our "cheese" products. Hahahaha we're stupid.
from flicka :
Get along then with your thirty dollar shoes!
from mangofarmer :
Yay job! I hope this one doesn't suck... the strange thing is, I had an interview on Saturday and it went really well, but I told them I had to think about it and let them know on Monday. Well, lo and behold, I didn't call them. What's that thing where you become attached to your tormentors? Stockholm Syndrome? Yeah I think I have that. *sigh*
from flicka :
Wow, sounds like the little chiquita needs to be the banorita (bano spanish for bathroom). I cannot find the tilde for the n. Sorry. Still reading ya! Religiously.
from flicka :
heheheheh....Angry like the Emu :)
from mangofarmer :
Hahahahahaha permitversity. Actually I've been there. Twice. Hahahahaha. Anyway, permitiversary it is. I'm not sure how this will be celebrated, but I know there will be alcohol. Oh yes.
from mangofarmer :
Ohmygod your learner's license expires at the end of the month too? You should totally renew it on the 24th so you can be a part of my ten year permitiversary celebration. We will be non-driving losers I mean totally cool people together! :)
from mangofarmer :
Yay for quitting! Pfft. Jobs. Who needs them?
from mangofarmer :
*hugs*
from mangofarmer :
No, emu darling. People own cars because they're evil! If people didn't have cars, there would be more buses and you wouldn't have to wait as long. See? Rationalization works to explain my loserliness. :-P
from mangofarmer :
Yay job! Congrats.
from flicka :
that was pretty gosh-darned funny--the german kid.
from mangofarmer :
Bwahahahaha. I don't know about you, but I always swear at my computer in German.
from mangofarmer :
Oh speaking of the back doors of the bus, I was on a bus in Bumblefuck today and a little kid was getting off through the doors but he dropped his groceries. At least some nice guy pressed the button for him, so he didn't get cut in half. I might have been late for rehearsal if that had happened.
from flicka :
Hey :) Yeah, it's really cool to think how one thing touches another and the effect of it on another thing.
from marysensei :
I would get annoyed, too. My friend Karen here in Japan is just like that. Even at a really, really nice Italian dinner we had last weekend, she slumped on the table, ignoring everyone and just obsessively texted people. Jesus, it was Sunday night. WHO THE HELL can you be texting???
from mangofarmer :
If I ever win the lottery and/or become a squisillionaire, I will totally give people money for reading books. I heart books. I've read "It". Good stuff. Scary as hell though.
from flicka :
You are making me laugh when I feel so shitty. Thanks!
from mangofarmer :
I don't know the right people either. Hence why I still work at coffee hell. Blech.
from flicka :
Yeah, I'm hoping so. I have sick feeling in my stomach about even getting out of bed.
from mangofarmer :
I think all these sightings are a sign that you should go apply at the TV station. ;)
from flicka :
I called in sick for work today, and my boss said okay. I felt guilty b/c I'm not sick. I was tired. She is moving me to another facility at work because so many bad things have happened at work, many folks were fired, people broke HIPPA, and I think she wants to test me. It's a loyalty test I think. So, hey, look for jobs in San Diego too okay??? God, I'm such a wuss. I envy you for going in and quitting. I have my master's degree and I still work with folks with no degree at the psych ward/hospital/homes.
from mangofarmer :
Dearest emu, I would LOVE to quit my job... if I could live off of your savings account because apparently we don't have those in America. *sigh* Anywho, enjoy your newfound unemployment and take it easy for while. :) :)
from mangofarmer :
*hug*
from mangofarmer :
Job offer, eh? You can be my agent. Start booking me some gigs! Go on, go! I'll give you, um, a ten percent cut. ;-D
from flicka :
i'm telling ya, there are sucky jobs there too....
from mangofarmer :
Awww, poor emu. You don't need to be funny if you don't feel like being funny. You can be an emo emu! God that was terrible. *hugs*
from flicka :
You've recently added funny little manager to your character list, and I find his name funny in and of itself. Also, you used the term "fucktard" rather well. My friend Suz uses it well too. Big laughs. Oh, I might be moving to San Diego California. I'm going to try to recruit some folks to move there. What do you think about Cali?
from flicka :
Yeah, welcome
from mangofarmer :
Blargh. Welcome to the "I need a new job really really badly" club.
from flicka :
Happy Canada Day. It's 4th of July here. 2 days before I start thinking of offing myself because I turn 31 and am working and the guy I sorta like is in San Diego. And I don't know if he likes me or what. I saw a homeless man get bounced at a really seady-looking bar in San Diego Friday. Or maybe it was Sat. It sounds sad, but it was funny.
from mangofarmer :
Why the hell AM I working there? That is a very excellent question. Unfortunately, I have no answers. Heh.
from mangofarmer :
Happy Canada Day, emu dear! Heh, I knew it was some country's holiday today, but I just couldn't think of which one. Feel free to hate me now.
from sekritsquirl :
i dont like to call people either, i never know what to say...
from sttm2 :
How old are U?
from flicka :
you just cannot escape Elton John?--you're killing me! I have the same issue with Matchbox 20. If I don't hear some song by them or Rob Thomas my blood stops coagulating. Looking forward to funny little boss. Where's creepy?
from mangofarmer :
In Gradschoolville, I once made the mistake of going to the grocery store in the rain. Walking uphill from the bus stop trying to carry both groceries and an umbrella was not such a good idea.
from mangofarmer :
Alright, I'm dumb. What's a degu?
from flicka :
Yeah, I'm even concerned about Creepy AWOL supervisor....
from flicka :
where should we send donations?
from flicka :
kick-ass-ness should be a word. And keep solving those un-problems of the world.
from peanut303 :
who the hell is anderson cooper?
from flicka :
plunging....."i died a little inside..." Too funny. Thanks for your note. Off to work soon.
from flicka :
I like your "man pretty" phrase. I'd like to a man out of a suit...it's been far too long!!!!
from flicka :
My crickets have left for vacation.
from mangofarmer :
Hard boiled eggs are quite possibly the hardest thing in the world to cook. Seriously. Either they're not done enough, or they've got that nasty gray stuff around the yolk. Yuck. Heh.
from willowfox :
I TOTALLY know what you mean! Whenever I wake up from a nap I am so incredibly nauseous! As sad as I am for you that you are afflicted in the same manner, I'm also glad I'm not the only one. It sucks! WHY CAN'T WE JUST NAP IN PEACE?!? WHY?!???
from flicka :
I was totally playing. My supervisor is cool, but my HR person who gave me the demotion is not.
from flicka :
50 bucks if your boss has the new nickname of: .....?.....um, lambchop? I'm tired and full to my brim with Kelly Clarkson lyrics. I work in a mental hospital, and one of the patients had a song on REPEAT. "I'll spread my wings, and I'll learn how to fly...." I'm about to Jump! Cheers.
from flicka :
I love the emu, and your thoughts are funny and real. Thanks!
from chsturtle :
Hi, I clicked on your banner. Who doesn't like cookies? I hear you about feeling like you don't fit in in social situations. I'm like that, I get stared at A LOT. However, I've come to terms with my oddness. Oh, also, you are lucky you didn't try to use that card on Paypal! They automatically close your acct. and it's such a pain to open, I just created another acct. Anyhow, hope things get better for you, real friends are good to have :)
from jakalope :
Dude, apply for a PC Mastercard or a Mosaik Mastercard. I guarantee you that either, but more likely BOTH of them will take you.

Welcome to the life of a struggling, working, single woman! It is all about the generic, the instant mix, and the profanity. Cheers!
from cheesyweasel :
Eventually... homework's kind of taken over my life lately (and I'm taking summer classes... ahh!) But I'll be back soon
from marysensei :
Yeah, I agree about the Monday to Friday/pussy thing. I work from Tuesday through Saturday, and I know how much I kick ass:)
from beautigirl :
God, just go for him! Don't be so picky and I'll be sooooo happy for you. Go out for coffee together, its worked for me.
from gumphood :
18% -- Good number?

*crossing my fingers for you*
from mangofarmer :
Ah yes. I too enjoy grilled cheese and pepperoni.
from marysensei :
As you can tell, I am all for moving to a city where you don't know anyone. How on earth would you meet new people if you didn't?? And thanks for the notes; very much appreciated.
from dangerspouse :
You're right, Emu, don't talk to him. Who knows what might happen - you might get to know him even. Gads.
from marysensei :
Holy Fuck!! Paddington's from Peru??
from karmacops :
happy birthday

being from British Columbia might make many people pretty evil, it's true, but evil or not, you have your redeeming qualities.
from mangofarmer :
Dearest emu, I've got you beat in the license department. I'll have had my learner's permit for ten years this August. I think I'm going to have a party for that occasion. ;)
from beatpoetgrrl :
my smoke detector IS directly next to my kitchen stove. every time i fry things, the smoke alarm goes off. drives me insane.
from marysensei :
I stayed in all day today, too. But, sadly, no Godfather (#2 is the best!), but I did watch "North Country" and an episode of "Law and Order SVU." TG for Isohunt!!
from beatpoetgrrl :
when your teeth start to fall out, it's time to have a gimlet. that's why they invented the whole "lime juice in a bottle" thing--to keep sailors from getting scurvy by just drinking their gin plain. no really.
from beautigirl :
And, you started all over again... Actually, those kind of "searches" would have freaked me out too. Anyway... Let the new saga begin!
from beatpoetgrrl :
nearly everything on that list is something that i remember on a daily basis. except that my cats don't jump on me, they sleep next to my feet and if i nudge them they flip out and carve deep gashes. so i've learned not to move around when i sleep...
from marysensei :
Man, I miss CNN. Listening to NPR just doesn't cut it here in Japan. I need my "American Morning" fix, you know?
from beatpoetgrrl :
yeah, i was a loser in jr. high too--but you know who they all wanted in their group when project time rolled around, right? yep.
from cheesyweasel :
Speaking of French monkeys, I saw this thing on Web Stuff 20 where this chimp (or some other sort of monkey) was smoking a cigarette and it was the most french-looking thing I'd ever seen. It even beat out the Eiffel Tower. And it was awesome. That's all I got to say.
from marysensei :
Psst...it's me, Marebear78. I moved! Dani and Chicago will guide you (wink, wink).
from nojakes :
I saw Anderson Cooper on Oprah today. (I'm such a fucking badass I could kill myself.) Hottie McHothot. Um anyway thanks for adding my journal to your favorites-- it made my day fer real, yo. But I had to ditch it because Diaryland sucks my balls. For future reference, I'm at nojakes.diary-x.com. Do you mind if I link to your journal? Because you're funny and I like you and I smoke Marlboro Light 100s. What kind are you considering trying?
from jakalope :
Just thought I'd give you a heads up. Anderson Cooper is on Oprah today.
from nojakes :
Cracktown, huh? o.O Doesn't sound too promising, but whatever. I don't see all the interest in Brokeback Mountain. (And trust me-- gay cowboys? BOO YAH!) Maybe it's just over my head. I'm a simple kind of boy. I wonder if I am the only person to have never read Anne Frank. Anyway best of luck to you. You seem like a rad person-- your screen name caught my attention in the resently updated list. xo, Jake.
from beatpoetgrrl :
thanks for the note! and if you do make it to new york, let me know--i live about 20 minutes away, and it's nice to meet diaryland people.
from princessreva :
How annoying!! Isn't there someone you could stay with- an extended stay hotel in the area, a hostel, heaven forbid? This job sounds like it's worth it! I'm sorry the fates are driving you bonkers:)
from cheesyweasel :
*crosses fingers* I hope everything works out for you. Or else I'll stomp to Cracktown and kick some ass. I'm in no mood, man.
from jakalope :
Good luck with the apartment scouting. I know first-hand what a bitch that can be. And thank you SO much for that link to "Lazy Sunday" you had a couple entries ago. It makes me so happy! =)
from candoor :
Merry Happy New Year and hope your 2006 is your best year yet :)
from beautigirl :
Actually, I am getting used to the mudslide. Since I tried it, I've been wanting a lot more chocolate lately... With your job you will notice a lot of rude people. They donít realize that cashiers are human too. I couldnít be one thatís for sure. When I go shopping I usually ask ďHow are you,Ē or something like that. I love Disturbedís new album. I downloaded their entire discography a while ago. They did a great cover for Fill Collins song Land of Confusion. They are touring the United States in January and February, hopefully they will visit Canada. That would be aaawesome! You havenít written about your kitties for a loooong time, but I havenít either hah hah. Would you take them when you move out? I live in a crack town, but honestly, that shit is everywhere. Well, sorry about the rambling...
from cheesyweasel :
GTA: San Andreas kicks Vice City's ass. But it's probably not worth risking death by seagull to go get it.
from jakalope :
Just be thankful you're not in the same boat as a certain someone, who works 9 hour shifts and doesn't get home until 4 in the morning. A 9pm closing doesn't sound so bad.
from jakalope :
Oh god, how I love that show! I've been watching since it was on CBC, but last night's show takes the cake. Is it wrong that I have the biggest thing for Kenny? He's so evil, its delicious!
from beautigirl :
Wow, being a casheer must be, stressful? Just wait till the hollidays. I haven't been around for a while, but its good to know you are still writing. I may post again after my trip to Minneapolis.
from m-u-l-l-e-t :
no problem, al pacino is awesome :)
from mangofarmer :
Stand around by yourself all the time at the coffee stand doesn't entail much in the way of breaks either. In fact, there aren't any. And then the new manager decided to take away our milk crates (used for sitting purposes). Argh. But I brought them back, teehee. Anyway, I hate closing by myself too. I feel your pain, dude.
from cheesyweasel :
Have some trans-continental congratulations, my friend! They're delicous and nutritious... just don't be substituting them for regular meals. YAY!!
from mangofarmer :
Yay job! Congratulations dearie!
from mangofarmer :
Awww, emu. *hug*
from cheesyweasel :
You left me out of an email survey? >pout< Okay, I take it back... Al Pacino is a sexy beast.
from cheesyweasel :
I was in Hot Topic today and saw some Scarface action figures... even though he's no Robert DiNero ^_~
from emu-head :
I haven't left myself a note in a while...
from mangofarmer :
Good luck with the job hunt/moving plans!
from howfuraha :
I came to your site because, like, 10 years ago, my AOL screen name was EmuHead! That is just so random. I thought I was bein' unique. :-P Anyway, that is really nutty about your email on The Late Late Show. Whenever I watch those things, I always wonder what it's like to be the person who wrote the email. That just sucks that he didn't even read the whole thing! Anyway, come visit my site if you want. It's just nutty that you chose Emu Head as your name. :)
from mangofarmer :
I think you need to make the switch to Jon Stewart. Do you get Comedy Central there?
from maliger :
Oh, also, I thought I'd share my sites. Shameless huh? I took it upon myself to support poetry and events for the arts, plus getting into web design... www.rainflowers.org www.visionariesdotheimpossible.com www.treeinaforest.com and the messageboard www.artisthefuture.com
from maliger :
Hi, just wanted to say I have a similar experience getting work done to music, with Howard Jones's album Cross That Line.
from mangofarmer :
Grrrr, stupid employers. I applied to be a cashier at a dollar store the first time they had an ad in the paper about a month ago. I even called to check on my application. Now they have ANOTHER ad in the paper saying they are still looking for people. I mean, WTF? As you say, a monkey could do that job.
from mangofarmer :
Haggis? Surely you don't mean the weird stuff they eat in Scotland? Is that a Canadian thing, like how they call a hat a "toboggan" down South? What is up with that anyway? Wow, this note is full of questions, isn't it? Hehe? ;)
from mangofarmer :
*joins the settling for retail club*
from mangofarmer :
Well, it could be worse (like McDonalds). ;) I'm kidding, I promise. Not that I want to wish retail on anyone, but if there's a mally mall close to you a lot of stores should be hiring seasonal help about now. That way you could have something until you move on to bigger and better things. Just a thought. Good luck, my fellow jobless one!
from cheesyweasel :
Hey, catching up on old entries: I'm a fan of Aveeno moisturizer. And as for moving, you know what they say: third time's a charm. Believe in the emu!
from uridium15 :
i'll kill you if you kill me
from beautigirl :
Wow, sounds like you're pretty stressed out. Just go out for a party or something. It helped me keep from going crazy and kept my mind off things for a while. Oh wait, you live in a little town, right? Hmmm... Just loosen up somehow and try to enjoy life if you can, even if that's just biking around... Good luck with everything. -Jenna
from mangofarmer :
I use that Olay sensitive skin stuff. It's not bad.
from cheesyweasel :
Man, I love that song. I guess that's all I got to say.
from marebear78 :
I hate Sundays, too. Especially when my dad throws his weekly tantrum. He even tries to bait me into getting mad at him by disagreeing with me on everything or saying something he knows is totally false just to get a rise out of me. GAAAHH.
from mangofarmer :
Aha! I'm Scottish! Well, half(ish) Scottish anyway. How come money runs through my fingers like water? It must be the Ukrainian side. :)
from mangofarmer :
Is Vancouver (the city) bad? It sounds like a nice place. Kind of Seattle-ish. But then again I've never been to Seattle anyway. What the hell am I talking about, I live in a hellhole too! Argh.
from marebear78 :
I will soon be joining you in the "living with the parents" telenovela. Oh, independence, how I shall miss thee!
from mangofarmer :
Wow. Can your grandma adopt me?
from mangofarmer :
As someone who is also in the "why the hell won't they hire me???" boat, I feel your pain. Good luck!
from jakalope :
They're doing the same thing with TLC. After they swore up and down that Left Eye was irreplaceable.
from marebear78 :
I bet he was dying to make an "American Pie" reference:) Best of luck with the job!!
from mangofarmer :
Housekeeping?! Yeesh. They'd better pay really well if you do take it...
from mangofarmer :
Yay interview! Good luck!
from cheesyweasel :
One condition: it's gotta be raspberry jello.
from mangofarmer :
Aww shucks. Playing theme music for a news program sounds much better than working at the mall. Thanks emu. ;)
from cheesyweasel :
Craig Fergusen is awesome. I thought that when Leno retires and Conan moves up to his slot, that Craig Fergusen would take over Conan's spot... but I've been known to be wrong about these things before.
from my-solitaire :
Yeah, your life soundsmore interesting than mine, you even go outside?! Yep, way mor einteresting...
from my-solitaire :
I always find it sad when chunky girls where tight clothes, I knwo not to wear spandex myself lol, is your mom like mine? Always talking about your weight? It aggravates me so... but anyway I wanted to say hi since I was passing by! So hello!
from marebear78 :
Thanks, dude! And you know that I am pulling for you to find a great job and have many adventures:)
from mangofarmer :
I third Chicago. I've always wanted to go there and meet Ferris Bueller. I'd say you should come visit here, but, well, there's not much to do here unless you like Walmart. And it would be wrong because I couldn't drive you to Walmart even if I wanted to. :-P
from cheesyweasel :
I second that - Chicago it should be! It's very nice, and I know all the hip joints that the cool cats hang in. Plus it's only a short Metra trip from "Ahh... LaGrange." Word, my sista.
from marebear78 :
I think you should come to Chicago for part of our fabulous summer (like July). Lake Michigan is gorgeous, we have a beach and two baseball teams to pick from, you can shop up and down Michigan Ave, our food is plentiful and awesome, and with the strength of the euro, the Europeans have invaded and we are enjoying a very global city right now.
from mangofarmer :
Some weirdo in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot waved at me yesterday. I'll take the hippie and the peace sign any day. :)
from jrie1985 :
I had the same dilemma when I was babysitting. I never knew how much to charge so instead I would say, "How much do you think it's worth?" so that they'd come up with a price and usually not too cheap because if they did, it would be like saying it wasn't appreciated. Nifty little trick, it was. As for your mom, you're probably irritated with her because you're around her too much. It happens with me and my mom too.
from jakalope :
haha You like? I was going for ironic. Nice job on your '101'. =)
from mangofarmer :
That's really surprising- most of the rich people in America vote Republican (like for Dubya, for example). Anyway, although she still refuses to do so, my grandma needs to move soon too. Her father *built* that house, back in the 1910s, so she has certainly never lived anywhere else. Oy. It will be tough when she actually moves.
from marebear78 :
Dude, I'm totally for you taking the plunge to go teach ESL somewhere. You can always find a "real" job when you get back:)
from mangofarmer :
I belatedly looked at the pictures! I'm a lazy-ass! For this I am sorry! Anyhooters, cute kitties. :)
from cheesyweasel :
Yes, I spent yesterday afternoon researching this online [please don't tell anyone...] Apparently, the "exclusive" talk comes after four or five *months* ... and some casual nastiness. >shudder< Thanks for the good advice, but I think I'll end up ignoring the problem alltogether. That solves everything :)
from desiree655 :
When you get back, I'll be waiting to read.
from mangofarmer :
*hug* Feel better.
from cheesyweasel :
Huh... that is a wacky idea. One that has occurred to me before, and it seems like a really good idea - in theory. In person, I get all flustered and forget that it's even an option. But I'll spare you the rest of the insanity.
from jakalope :
Luck!
from marebear78 :
Sorry to hear about the shitty tax stuff. Hang in there!
from mangofarmer :
Well, I mean, you do talk about it a lot and all... ;) One of my friends is a TV news producer. She really likes it, and it seems like she makes decent money. I'm sure there's all kinds of options in the industry that require varying levels of schooling- like my friend the producer with a bachelors and her friend the cameraman with some college? maybe? but no degree. Well, I'm going to stop talking about things I know nothing about and just wish you luck. You rock, emu, no matter what. :)
from mangofarmer :
Maybe this is a stupid suggestion, but have you ever thought about going into TV journalism? I say this because you're always talking about those news anchors and all... so maybe you could be one of them. :)
from cheesyweasel :
Since Diaryland currently sucks, I've edited the last entry and put the new one there. Feast your eyes!
from cheesyweasel :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And if I'm going to give my soul for a director's chair, it better have my name on the back before I get it. You should only trade your soul for high-quality.
from mangofarmer :
Happy Birthday! Yay emu! :)
from desiree655 :
Happy Birthday!
from cheesyweasel :
How awesome! I've always wanted a director's chair. Does it have your name on the back?
from cheesyweasel :
Duuude. It looks like Skye can flap her hair and fly. Do you think she's a sponsor for IronTough hairspray?
from desiree655 :
OH.. and the diabetes thing? My mom has diabetes too, so.. if you ever need to talk about it for some God-awful reason, well.. just get me a click. Sincerely.
from desiree655 :
I think it's her name. I mean, really... Skye Ryan? Pfft. Just get over it and name her Sky Rain.
from mangofarmer :
There's a crazy freaky Siamese who lives at the vet's office in Craptown. Vets must like freaky cats. Speaking of vets, poor Chloe the Wonder Cat is overdue for a trip there. :-X

You're not a psycho. It's a diary! Write about whateverthehell you want!
from cheesyweasel :
Ooh, I'm all curious. Bring it on!
from cheesyweasel :
The weather pixie is vexing me! All right, what's 7 celsius? I actually looked up the conversion rate and tried it and got three different answers (how I passed math is beyond me...) 70, 21, and 40... I think your pixie cursed me. Sadly, all of those temperatures are higher than what we have. [P.S. I've now got me mum hooked on your diary, she says you rock.]
from mangofarmer :
Holy crap. Can I borrow $50? ;)
from jakalope :
Take it from me, the only two shows worth watching on Tv right now are "The OC" and "Desperate Housewives". I was late to jump on the bandwagon for both shows, but I'm hooked. It's like two hours of televised crack for me.
from cheesyweasel :
Take it from someone who's actually hit their head when they've fainted: It's not fun. But it does make for a good story. Good luck with your various woes!
from mangofarmer :
I know a perfect solution for all your money woes: donate any excess to your friendly neighborhood mangofarmer. :)
from marebear78 :
love your stuff!! And good luck with the job search. Take it from someone with a shitty job: I'd rather be unemployed than settle again just to pay rent. Enjoy the freedom while it lasts;)
from mangofarmer :
Good luck on the job hunt! I will keep my fingers crossed for you.
from mangofarmer :
99% of the makeup I had I bought for my junior prom (in, hmmm, '97?). Although I do still have some of that lying around, I bought one of those department store makeup kits a couple of years ago and will be using that until I die. Yep.
from omnipre5ence :
Computers svck, I'm sorry. :(
from cheesyweasel :
Congrats on making it out of the hell hole! I'm stuck in mine for the next two and a half years...
from cheesyweasel :
Yes, I will rejoice in my Illinois splendor. Sucks though that we're surrounded by Bush-loving freak states.

I'm locking my diary for a week or two. Your username is "friend" and your password is "1257804". Thanks!
from cheesyweasel :
Oh man. I just visited The George's site and nearly peed myself laughing at the Kodak moments. Oh, the big 80's hair...
from mangofarmer :
Oy. Be careful with those Smirnoff Ices. Those things are dangerous. :-P
from cheesyweasel :
George Gray has a new show on ESPN, I think it's on every Tuesday at nine (central time), called I'd Do Anything. It looked pretty good, like a Fear Factor for sports nuts, and the people who love them. And, oh the Georginess...
from desiree655 :
Happy Thanksgiving! (although, my thanksgiving isn't until Nov. and no I don't know why we have it the third thursday every November.)
from cheesyweasel :
Thanks for the advice. I'm leaning towards sticking it out right now, hoping that once I take classes specialized to my major, things will get better. Although, working at the dry cleaners across the street is awfully tempting... o_O
from pricklypeach :
what about SADD... seasonal affective disorder?
from desiree655 :
crying = stress. I don't know how or why, but that's usually my problem. It don't realize I'm overly stressed until BAM.. I just start bawling and I can't control it.
from enigma104 :
Happy 19.5 Birthday! Oi, I have a love hate relationship with horrible teachers. My Frecnh teacher last year was the absolute worst, by 2nd trimester, the office wouldn't allow her to send any more kids to the office, so she had to send us outside(there were more kids in the hall than in the class most of the time). But she was great fun to watch teach.
from cheesyweasel :
Hell yeah! I'm completely addicted to word searches too.
from desiree655 :
yup, completely understandable log entries. As for the cellphone, I purchased a Nokia 3650 and I gotta tell ya, avoid those suckers the speakers fail waaaay too often.
from freakingout :
Your diary has always made a lot of sense to me, and has been very entertaining. Congratulations on getting first place! And I'm sorry about the exam, at least it's almost all over with, I suppose.
from mangofarmer :
I've been to Toronto. I liked it, actually. :)
from mangofarmer :
As of right now, Canada has two silvers and a bronze. Just thought I'd share. :) http://sports.yahoo.com/oly/medals
from mangofarmer :
Amen on the no-car thing. I think I want to be the world's first person to get a masters degree before a driver's license. :)
from cheesyweasel :
Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge and experience. I think I'll be OK at typing, thanks to years of practicing at Best Buy. In any case, it doesn't look like I'll get one anytime soon.
from mangofarmer :
Eeek! I hope you're okay.
from cheesyweasel :
Aww! >sends good thoughts< I hope it's nothing serious. I passed out once from dehydration. It wouldn't have been that big of a deal, except I whacked my head against the bathtub on the way down. Even when I'm not conscious I'm still clumsy. Anyway here's some >more good thoughts<
from mangofarmer :

i am going to buy a kitten soon. i am going to name it nirvana. or if its a boy, "dog."
from mangofarmer :
A (seemingly) parked truck rolled down the hill and totalled three parked cars right next to my apartment building sometime this spring. I went out to buy a newspaper and saw all these police cars and thought there was a giant drug bust or something until I saw the smashed-up cars. Good times. Well, not for the owners of the cars anyway...
from mangofarmer :
Gah. I "never" talk either.
from creepatron :
We had an earthquake down in Virginia when I was in school. It was totally random. All of a sudden the bed started shaking and we thought it was because the radiator was malfunctioning and being clanky. A couple hours later we realized the earth was moving. Weird.
from mangofarmer :
No one ever really calls me, so when my cell phone rings it scares the shit out of me. I forget what it even sounds like. :)
from mangofarmer :
Yay for mental health days! Your cats are indeed adorable, by the way.
from freakingout :
Your cats are adorable, and I hope you have a good mental health day. I know I comment at random times, but I always read..I guess sometimes I just feel like actually saying something!
from cheesyweasel :
I didn't know it was on tonight! That's so weird, I just had a dream about him last night. Me so psychic. I pretty much stopped watching GSN once that guy from Joe Millionaire got his own show, but I'll definitely watch Greek Games. Thanks for reminding me!
from cheesyweasel :
Scooter and Hogg are so cute! They sort of look like my grandma's cat, Josh, except he used to be 30 pounds (now about 13) so he's got that loose-skin thing going on. It's pretty gross actually. And he's got a weird head
from mangofarmer :
Yay optimism. :)
from cheesyweasel :
(hand remains firmly down) Election? You guys get cool names for your parties. The Green Party, sounds so soothing. I'm not big into the politics so I probably sound like a big dumbass.
from mangofarmer :
I am indeed a stupid American. I did not know Canada has an election coming up. But then again, I gave up paying attention to the <begin sarcasm> "liberal" media </sarcasm> a long time ago.
from cheesyweasel :
P.S. I just added a new entry my editing my old one and putting my new one there. It doesn't show up on the Buddy List thing, but at least it's there. I feel all full of victory.
from cheesyweasel :
>mouth drops< Hurrah! I'm doing that rapid fluttering of the hands thing, so I'm really excited. Greek Games, hmm? I hope he still gets to make fun of the contestants. Thanks a million!
from cheesyweasel :
Yay for the George Gray marathon! I might have to start watching Superstar USA now...
from cheesyweasel :
Aww, sorry about Oreo. Yeah, people don't give enough sympathy for the fuzzy little cage-dwellers. When my hamster Freckles died my mom came home to find me all dressed in black and crying. She laughed at me. Maybe I went a little overboard. I hope Ozzy does okay.
from mangofarmer :
I'm sorry about Oreo. :(
from freakingout :
people did the same thing to me in elementary school and middle school. you'd think by the time you get into college and into the work force, people would be past that. i hope for your sake, you find someone out there who understands you. you deserve it!
from mangofarmer :
Move to Canada, eh? Maybe, in November if Shrubbie is re-elected. :) As yet another person who "doesn't talk". I feel your pain.
from cheesyweasel :
Aww, Emu! Head! Thanks a bunch for the cue-ing of the sympathy. I'd like to tell you that the anklebiters were better than I expected, and I shall regail you with stories of their horror shortly. Thanks again!
from scottie1402 :
Hey there...I came to you through miss-madelyn's diary...as an Aussie, how could I resist a diary with the username emu-head? The answer is that I couldn't. VERY cool...I'll definitely be back!
from girlie03 :
hey girl...here's my new diary address... http://www.livejournal.com/users/awkwardbeauty/
from cheesyweasel :
Thanks. I'm feeling better now, watched myself a healthy dose of Jim Carrey. Sorry about Bruce McAllister, I felt the same way when Andy Avalos quit being weatherman because he wanted more money. Ah, newscasters. Thanks again :)
from girlie03 :
It did me too, and then I went and read your diary and thought "Hey! She would love this!" So ya. It entertained me for much too long. :D
from girlie03 :
I thought that you of all people might enjoy this....http://www.subservientchicken.com/ It's too much fun.
from girlie03 :
It works, it works!! I see the hottie...And I see the newscaster....Haaaa, I'm clever! :D
from girlie03 :
Thanks for the kind words. It's nice to know I have loyal readers, like the EMU!! Honestly, what else do I need if I have the EMU? Thanks girl.
from mangofarmer :
Heh. I've never had Quizno's. Do you have those annoying commercials with the mice things in Canada? Those things freak me out!
from cheesyweasel :
I'll probably get around to emailing him sometime in the next two days. When I get to that point where I have nothing left to do but my homework, that's when I'll email him. Planning is the key to procrastination, you've got to set up your excuses early.
from mangofarmer :
*hug*
from cheesyweasel :
Yeah I enjoy a good showing of the british WLiiA, but I prefer the american one because I understand all the pop culture references. I thought Josie was always hysterical, it's a shame she wasn't on the american version more often. Are you going to email George for his birthday?
from freakingout :
I say, some day, when it feels right, go for it with the guy. You just never know. You're right, people do suck. Fortunately you're not people and don't suck.
from freakingout :
Today I realized that although I read all of your entries still, I never make my existence known to you. So now you know I read and enjoy your diary just like always! Have fun at the golf tournament.

Damn it, I sent my last note to you to myself. Here's the summary: It was quite exciting for me too. I hope one day that you'll beat Dragonslayer, s/he's been on the leaderboards too much.
from cheesyweasel :
hey, number 7 on Lingo!
from cheesyweasel :
I think I saw that Fanny was on and I skipped it. But hurrah (hurray?) none the less!
from cheesyweasel :
I always try to keep an eye open for you on the Match Game leaderboards, you're still Emu-Head on them, right?
from spifficus :
hello, I am fellow u2 fan, and it's always good to meet people like you. Also, I like your diary. I relate, dude. u2 forever!
from cheesyweasel :
I was thinking about e-mailing him again, but what to say? I already told him he's awesome and funny... Sometime in the future. It's too stressful e-mailing him :) I spent about an hour on it (and several drafts - I am a dork)
from cheesyweasel :
Hey, George just wrote me back! (woo woo!) Sorry about the ferry strike. These people from the Congress Hotel in Chicago have been on strike for about 6 months. That's probably not what you needed to hear. ^_^ But George emailed me!
from mangofarmer :
:)
from cheesyweasel :
I started bouncing up and down, not easy in a swivel chair. Yay! That's it, I'm going to e-mail him now... how exciting!!
from cheesyweasel :
Hey, congrats!
from cheesyweasel :
Me again. I was just reading and had to agree with you that Richard Dawson is one sexy dude.
from cheesyweasel :
You have single-handedly rekindled the George Gray flame, and for that the world should thank you. And I do! I wonder if that 'email George' link will ever work...
from kristintracy :
OH. MY. GOD!!! i. love. emus soso much. like. a lot. i even subscribed to "emu today" magazine (no joke), but, sadly, it was not the superspectacular source of emu photos i was hoping for. mostly it's just blah blah emu oil blah. : ( in any event. emus. ROCK.
from cheesyweasel :
(jaw drops) I'm quite tempted to start singing It's A Small World After All... but for your sanity I will refrain. Weakest Link is no longer playing on any channel by me :( I'm adding you to my favs too! Cya around-
from cdghost :

from bloodyvisage :
I feel you on the ah nold things. hell, he may be governor but he can never be president, yip. i forgot what the hell else i was going to write. ah well, just felt like responding.
from geeky-kiki :
Oh, honey. I just read your latest entry, and although I can't offer any advice (because I don't want to misguide you), I can say that I feel for you, and I'm not just saying that. I'm giving you the standard "keep your head up"/"you'll get through this" stuff, but in all seriousness, some way, everything will work itself out for the best. Good luck to you and the fam.
from geeky-kiki :
"My mom and I went to Wal Mart today where I had a good long look at Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind on DVD. I haven't seen the movie, but I absolutely loved the book." Totally buy the DVD. I just rented it, and it was excellent... fucking weird, fucking genius-- haven't read the book though... later ;)
from freakingout :
I'm glad you're back! Good luck with the job interview. Since I don't have anything important to say, I'll leave you with that.
from melissa1983 :
Christina, glad to see you're back and that you're safe. lol. Good idea starting a new diary. Oh by the way, THANK YOU once again for sending me the Jackass tape. I love it.
from mizundaztood :
Yay, welcome back, dude! And in emu-form. I think those birds have a bad rap. Being all small headed and tiny brains and all...They are birds, right? What's a gnu anyways?...Kudos on the Paralegal career choice. I was actually going to give that a go, before I became set on going into Radio. Cheers!
from beautigirl :
