from wordwhore :
Congrats - so lovely!
from oiweirdkid :
Blimey! Signs of life. I had been thinking about you recently. Hope things are alright with you.
from discodave :
Cheers, m'dear (and sorry I'm so late getting back to you with my reply). Dxx
from discodave :
Thanks hon - Mike left me a yousendit link on lj, but if you want anything I might have give me a shout anyway :) Dxx
from discodave :
That'd be lovely, hon - thank you :) You have my email addy, right? Dxx
from discodave :
Thank you very much, sweetie :) Dxx
from discodave :
What can I say? I'm stubborn enough to avoid them. I think it's mainly wanting to work stuff out for myself, honestly. Dxx
from discodave :
Absolutely, my thoughts exactly :) Dxx
from discodave :
Nice thoughts :) Oh, and I've replied to your comment - icon done and dusted :) Dxx
from lsmonkey :
Thanks for the note. It's a pretty bad situation. I hope she and i will remain friends. Hope all ok with you,s.
from heelandlass :
And I just have to say - your son is absolutely beautiful, what incredible eyes!
from heelandlass :
Wow! Thank you so much for leaving that heart felt note. I can't begin to tell you how much it means to me. Really and honestly - thank you. Tomorrow is going to be tough, having people send me their wishes really does help. xxx
from lsmonkey :
Hey! Thanks for the birthday message! Hope all well, s x.
from kymee :
Hey babe - hope all is well, just catching up on dland. No, wasn't in London when it all happened, however, my sister has been missing since it happened.
from discodave :
Oops - sorry...good luck with that - drink plenty of fluids. ok? ;) Dxx
from jmixtape :
Hi Gwen.I am still alive.I will try and call you this week on your mobile.things are ok for the most part.I will fill you in soon.Take care.
from lsmonkey :
Hi Hope you are okay Now leaving my office near London Bridge. Don't know how i will get back yet. Otherwise ok - just sickened by the whole thing, s.
from tremblingblu :
Hey G.S., I know you haven't heard from me in a million years but I read your updates and I just had a weird idea that's probably totally inappropriate... but still i couldn't keep it to myself... The idea is as follows: I wondered if maybe you'd like to chat with my husband's twin brother (This husband is nobody you've ever heard of before, I don't think!) He likes Aqua Teen, he's very open to cool music, he's kind and sensitive, and if he's anything like his twin he loves with a single-minded devotion, heheh.... Plus their band is going to cover Emma's House one of these days, they've got the guitar part down really nice. Yeah, I know, nobody is "desperate" enough to drop an e-mail to some guy in North Dakota but I worry about him, he has a lot of troubles lately and could always use a new friend and I honestly think he'd be a great friend or a great "catch" for anyone... So if this sounds intriguing in the slightest you can drop me a note over at http://www.livejournal.com/users/27bunnies/ or whatever. Hope all is well!!
from lsmonkey :
Hope you feel better, s x.
from girlypop :
16 March 2005: Gwenny, I'm just back and I wanted to wish a belated but very heartfelt HAPPY BIRTHDAY for yesterday. I hope you had a good day. I sent my pressie last week, hope it gets there this year! Lots of love xxx
from lsmonkey :
hi there. long time no hear. i am lsmonkey now, astronautm imploded, something to do with some server or something. hope you are ok, s x.
from girlypop :
hello gwenny! long time eh? i miss you. hope you and Rymer are ok. are you still on the PO Box address in Running Springs? xxx
from achren :
That's the episode! I don't even like the Angel/Buffy drama that much at this point, but it's still so sad. And she turns back into such a bitca afterwards. M.
from astronautm :
Hi there! Happy Birthday, Rymer. s x
from astronautm :
Email me at [email protected] for password and to say hi, s.
from discodave :
AstroM and I were wondering where you were - you ok? Hi, by the way. Dxx
from astronautm :
Hello.s.
from dooki :
hello! i found your diary by chance, or by farce, one of the two. Anyway, i really enjoy the things you write...all diary-like and neato. Don't let the name dooki fool you, I can be depleted of such excrements when it suits me. Do you suit me? I shall never know. Drop me a note sometime!
from cat-heaven :
hiya gwennie! thanks for the note. i'm trying to rock out here, it's been mostly okay but sometimes slow going. it seems like things are great with you, i hope i'm right. but i sure wish you'd update more! xoxo, michelle
from macfarlane :
Happy New Year Honey!
from bebelua :
hey. i tried to email you a password, but the aol address bounced...
from achren :
that is quite a compliment, and i'm glad that something i said resonated that well. a lot of the stuff i've been posting lately just sort of falls out of my mouth (or the end of my fingers) as i go, and so in a way it's doubly good to know that there's something to it. as for being melodramatic...well, i just seem to excel at that of late. i guess it happens, sometimes. even if it is within my Girl Bill of Rights. -M
from achren :
and another thanks, this one for the birthday wishes. it was definitely a weekend with high doses of all those things...almost to a scary point. heh. xo.m.
from achren :
belated, but thanks nonetheless. :) glad things are going well for you!
from belladonna- :
Hey you - wanted to let you know I had the little peep...she's an angel in her own right...named her Marlee, she's almost 6 weeks old now...trying to catch up with you - you sound GOOD! I haven't read very far back yet.. Will do so soon. Take care! Gwen
from discodave :
I'm losing track of which memes I have and haven't taken - in fact, I know for sure I've taken a couple of them two or three times. Still, it's better than ranting sometimes. Dxx
from discodave :
Don't worry - I decided I'd try then once and only once. I can move on having "experimented". Dxx
from achren :
yes, in that case: definitely someone i am keen about. i have been looking at grad schools, yes, but i cannot begin to think about affording it, let alone getting recommendations, and the fact is that i want to go to the university of queensland. in australia. not going to happen. i don't think. sigh. xo.m.
from achren :
thanks, about buster - he is going to a specialist on thursday. i don't really know what this entails, but i will find out later, i expect. the entry was about a boy but probably not quite the way you meant; it was about someone i really really want to meet who couldn't make it up here for a second time. i worry that it may read a little too...something else, but so it goes. i liked it anyway. xo.m.
from bluering :
re: journal project. it was no. 4. all taken care of, thanks for letting me know!
from panicbird :
Hope the move isn't too awful. Now, at the risk of sounding silly and very English, where is OC?! I only just saw the photos of your hair - it's lovely. Sticky out hair rules!
from achren :
i never complain about receiving mixes. and i'm glad the books got there safely; yesterday i saw your address scribbled down on a notepad on my desk and was convinced i'd written in wrong on the mailing envelope. while unpacking my books i found yet ANOTHER set (though one i bought for cheap and then realized had underlining in it, uck) so perhaps there'll be another home out there that needs them one of these days. i will be the leguin fairy! uh, or something.
from mi-contra-fa :
Magnetic Fields... ace.
from achren :
NaNoWriMo is November: www.nanowrimo.org. I don't know how I'll manage, between work and visitors and birthday et al, but hell, it's worth a try...
from bluedevlair :
"Froody."
from achren :
(Stupid guestbook! I have not signed you!) Ahem. Email me your address and the books will be on their way, for serious! I don't think I know the book you're talking about, though sometimes things surprise me when I start reading them and realize they're old friends. But don't feel like you need to send something in return; this is what my house is FOR, in a way. (Just ask Dave. Not that he got books from it, but he'll know what I mean.) By the way, have you read Isobell Carmody?
from discodave :
Cheers for that - and the chat earlier. Hmm - I dunno why I thought that. Well, maybe I do, but I ain't saying. Dxx
from discodave :
And, in addition, ignore my glibness - I wrote a note before checking your diary - I hope things get better for you sonn. Dxx
from discodave :
You too, hon. Dxx
from discodave :
OK - My brain's mush, but I'll try: 1)(I'm asking everyone this one now I've thought of it) You are Moses. You've just dropped a tablet. Dammit. What did it say? It's OK, you can tell me... 2)The 10 commandments - rules? Or are they more sort of, guidelines...? 3)This is getting religious for some reason, but...New Line hold the option for the Chronicles of Narnia. Good thing - or will we all be bored to tears of fantastical films by 2025? 4)Which band (that you know, or would like to) would you kill to be a part of? What would you play? 5)You're moving - where would you really, really, like to be moving to? Or are you already doing that? Dxx
from ladyvivien :
You have no idea how perfectly I now love you for that comment...
from idiot-milk :
I'd say, yes, all the denizens of hell are currently wearing sweaters.
from discodave :
And who am I to turn my nose up at that? Ta, love. Dxx
from astronautm :
Cool. Didn't mean to be snappy. Had a bit of bad day. By the way, if i wasn't attached, having seen your photo ...i so would.
from astronautm :
The tape wasn't meant to be sentimental. It was meant to be life-affirming. Sorry.:(
from cat-heaven :
holy crap. i hope harold shows up soon. i thought california was supposed to be the land of plenty for that kind of thing! good luck!
from likots :
HELLO PLEASE VISIT THE NEW REVIEW SITE. HTTP://CA-REVIEWS.DIARYLAND.COM THANKs
from journ-proj :
(oops) and also, you haven't been dropped off the list. we're just random.
from journ-proj :
thanks for the note and the question. the journal is going to bra2002 because that's who was chosen. we have no set list--the order on the tracking page and on the mailing list sheet are just the order people signed up. when you get a journal and finish your section of it, you pick someone off the list and mail it on. totally random, which is how bra2002 came to be next. sorry if there was any confusion.
from discodave :
Guestbooks are pissing me off - just saying thanks for the note, is all. As you were. Dxx
from joeparadox :
Are you okay? It sounds like this is a tough time for you. I'm thinking of you.
from discodave :
I will go - or Ellie'll kill me. I like Girlfriend, even though it's silly and contrived, I still prefer the characters to most other books that were meant to be great but I felt no empathy with. Dxx
from ajreviews :
Hi! I'm Kris from Applejacks Reviews. And I was wondering if you'd like to have your diary reviewed. Thanks for your time! -- Kris
from joeparadox :
Thanks for leaving that comment under my Alan Rickman entry. Some people just don't get it. They piss me off anyway. Dumbasses. Thanks again for getting it.
from discodave :
They're now checking the drains where the goth kids hang out (in an abandoned churchyard) - the clichés just keep on coming... Dxx
from belladonna- :
Things are ok, thanks for asking. I have gestational diabetes now - want to hear the crazy run down of crap that has happened in this pregnancy? Well first the miscarriage. Then at 6 weeks with this one I start bleeding - and ontinue to do so until 9 weeks because of a sub-chorionic hematoma that apparently, none of the doctors in my hospital are familiar with. Then they find a separation in the placenta. And then the down's syndrome thing. And then there is a problem with her heart - the pulmonary arteries to be exact. And now the diabetes. All of this puts me at risk for preterm labor - so watch me go overdue by about a million weeks. I am disgruntled and will adopt from here on out. On the other hand, I think your nose is adorable. Not in a creepy way - in referring to a past entry about your nose growing. I read somewhere that your nose and ears never stop growing. That's why there are a bunch of 90 year olds with big floppy ears that don't work and shnozzes the size of Arkansas. Oh well - such is life, right? Sorry bout the evil one. September is far away - I could give you an exact estimate (wait, is that an oxymoron?) since I am counting down the seconds until this child COMES OUT.
from discodave :
I went around telling everyone wearing black and eyeliner to repent their sins yesterday. And to stop listening to Foo Fighters as Dave Grohl is obviously the Devil. Dxx
from discodave :
IOt got worse - trying to connect goth music/fashion with ritual behaviour and black magic. This isn't Norway, fer chrissakes. Dxx
from discodave :
Strange laws you crazy yanks have... Nice layout, by the way. Dxx
from kymee :
Substitute BL for old fucking hag and I would've been right there with you. Silly witch! (her, not you). Still need one word pet. The _____? I'll put insane there, I swear I will.
from kymee :
I tried to leave a message earlier, asking you for one word to describe yourself but I received an error. Okay, would like to think of myself as a reg, but have no clue what you're on about. P.S. Still can't sign the book, says user unknown, or something to that regard.
from joeparadox :
gwensarah, thanks for listing me as a fave...i'm returning the compliment...okay, you win snape...i'm too into my ridiculous clay aiken infatuation right now to fight ya for him...
from joeparadox :
Hey Sarah, thanks for your nice note...I am such a ring whore that I actually found out you can only make 12 rings on one account...boo hiss...all my rings relate in some way to my shallow pop-culture sensibilities...and that's how I like it...Stop by anytime! -Marie
from joeparadox :
I tried to sign your guestbook, but it booted me off...they can be so moody...get it, MOODY...sorry, that was very HPG of me (harry potter geek)...anyway, i joined your stats-whore ring too, gotta get the money's worth out of the Gold, I know...if you check out my diary, I have a Snape ring too (severus) with a cute little snippet you might enjoy...Thanks! -Marie
from grrldreds :
hey, I am doing a study for my university on ravers and if you would want to fill out a survey it would really help me out. Everything is completely confidential. If you would be interested you can email me at [email protected] Thanks.
from astronautm :
Hi Thanks for the kind note. I was just whinging i guess. I have felt a little bit blue this week, tho'. Hope you're okay. " Human Behaviour" by Bjork for the jukebox. Take good care, s.
from kymee :
Take "How go be Good" off your list, I have it in hard back and if you email me your address, it'll be winging it's way to you in no time.
from girlypop :
Oh, no! When I was writing this entry I was only thinking about my friend in Greece to whom I'm referring to. It was insensitive of me to talk about this topic at this stage... Sorry. But I wasn't referring to you. I know you're very independent.
from girlypop :
Harvey?!!!
from girlypop :
No, no wait! "New Moon On Monday" was MY favourite song and I was engaged to Simon (I dumped him at the age of 12 for Sting and at 13 Sting was dumped for Morrissey!)
from girlypop :
How wonderful, the whole Sarah thing and the memories it brings back. Do you ever find yourself playing saropoly with Rymer?
from girlypop :
You ARE young! A couple of years younger than me, and I AM young so you are too ;) Am really glad you found the record. Hope you danced madly to it!
from elliemulder :
The friend who wrote me the words I posted knows how easily I take things to heart. She truly believes I am a goddess, and on days when the world does not seem to be crashing around my ears I'm inclined to believe her. From the little I know of you you should feel the same xx
from girlypop :
Don't even forget how lucky you are to have Rymer. Happy, talented, kind and loving kids become adults that bring happiness to others. You are one wonderful girl for having turned this little baby into this beautiful creature.
from girlypop :
Oops! Very very sweet thought :) Thank you! There's something in the post for you & Rymer though. Hope you enjoy it. And thank you for the listing in your favourite diaries and the wonderful comment. I'd be honoured.
from girlypop :
i do have the smiths Peel sessions, in vinyl :) But they're back in Greece, I don't dare moving any rare Smiths records from there in case they arrive here in pieces... Silly me! If you'd like a copy and if you are (really) patient, next time I go back, I can make a tape for you. What about that? x
from panicbird :
Hi there. I'm glad you let me know you were moving/had moved...I've added you again! I'm keeping on following you around!
from tremblingblu :
erm no i don't have any chat programs, can you recommend any i should get sometime? i've been avoiding this whole internet addiction thing until recently. :-) if i don't use the internet at *work*, and if i'm not using it to look for a *boy*, it's not quite so unhealthy though. g'night gwensarah
from tremblingblu :
erm yeah, I hate the guestbook error too. In fact my computer is annoying me altogether today. I was trying to correct that URL i tried to post since it came out wrong and i felt silly. here it is. http://store.artistdirect.com/store/artist/album/0,,1079685,00.html?src=search
from astronautm :
I tried to e-mail you with my address, but it got sent back. E-mail me at the e-mail address i gave you. Hope you are well, s.
from astronautm :
I meant Field Mice - this might sound wildly improbable, but is genuinely true - when i was typing the last message i was looking at a postcard my friend had sent me of - you've guessed it - Mickey Mouse. Doh!!!! Take care, s.
from astronautm :
Where can i listen to Field Mouse songs? And if you want to know what i do with my day, you only have to ask. I assure it's not very exciting. Take care, s.
from astronautm :
Hi there, thanks for the notes. "November Spawned A Monster" by Morrissey. Where can i download the Aberdeen song you mentioned?
from astronautm :
I am up way way too late. But seeing as i am here... Hope you are well. "Birthday" by The Sugarcubes for the jukebox. Take care, s.
from astronautm :
For the jukebox: "song 2" by Blur and "Tomorrow Never Knows" by the Beatles. If there is anything you want to say that you can't say in my notes: [email protected] - take care, a.m
from astronautm :
"Driftwood" by Travis, even though it makes me ... wistful. Hope you are well, a.m
from trinity63 :
hi you - which entry of mine did you like?
from astronautm :
I often feel like a visitor on this planet. "She's Like A Rainbow" - World of Twist. Take care, a.m
from astronautm :
You are not invisible. "Teardrop" by Massive Attack for our jukebox. a.m
from astronautm :
Something uplifting..."Ain't That Peculiar", by Marvin Gaye. Sorry you are down in the dumps. Say hello anytime. Can't promise to help, but can promise to try and make you smile. Take care, a.m.
from astronautm :
Hi! The suggestions you made for the mythical Jukebox were too obscure for me. I'm thinking we have just come back from a mission and it is the same old faithful bartender and he puts on .... "Raspberry Beret" by Prince. Take care, a.m
from astronautm :
Another one for the Jukebox: Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon & Garfunkel. Hope you are well, a.m
from astronautm :
Look, it can only be a matter of time before i am declared Emperor of All Things. Then we can sit down and have a pint or two and have The World's Greatest Jukebox ...Ever! presented to us as fitting tribute. Make a note in your diary. For starters - "Night of the Living Bassheads", by Public Enemy, "Be My Wife", David Bowie, "Instant Karma," John Lennon...
from astronautm :
hi. That's a very mysterious note about me in your profile. Thank you for adding me to your favourites. Regards, a.m
from discodave :
Seeing as the guestbooks are screwed, I thought I'd write a note here instead. I wish I could say something that would placate you, or make you feel a little better, but I can't. All I can say is, this place helped me a hell of a lot - I split up with The Girl (I thought) just after I started writing here and I think if I hadn't had a diary, I would have gone completely loopy. Whatever else I'm doing, I'm always going to be on here: whether I'm single, going out with someone, married or whatever. I've been relentlessly cutesy the last wee while and I know that gets a bit irritating when you're feeling lonely - but it is proof that the status quo won't always be the status quo, I hope. Hugs and stuff. Dxx
from sweet-avenue :
i was bored with the old layout. does your note mean you don't like the new one? you should tell me either way. i'm actually itching to make one of my own...
from jpoet112 :
yes, i'm back from hawaii. but no, i am not looking for a girl. real or otherwise. but i am seeking a dream. some motivation. something to search for. some mission. some goal. because right now, i don't know what i really want to do with my life. i don't know what i want to gain from my life. i know that i want to be happy and at peace with myself and the world. but i do not know what will give me that happiness, that peace. and honestly, i think the vast majority of this earth's population doesn't know what brings them peace . . . or they have some small inkling of it, but do otherwise because its easier. like brent being in new york city trying to be an actor. that's what he wants. he's giving all he can give. working his hardest to accomplish that. and i just don't know what i want to pour my heart and soul into. because i'm overflowing. and i have stopped running, and looked around. and i realize that it is not a matter of physical placement . . . i realized that long ago. some of it is simply related to my being only 21. going back to finish college in the fall. still mid transit. no where permenant. and i think, perhaps, once i finish school, things will change.
from jpoet112 :
perhaps it is just that i am painfully insecure, and these insecurities overwhelm me at times. and i come to feel unloved, or not able to be loved . . . and maybe that is really all anyone ever wants. just to know that they're good enough to be loved. and honestly, at present, though i need to be loved, i recognize that i am in no postion for romantic love. i'm so torn over the issue. i'm tangled up in this longing for some romantic powerful save my soul type love. and i always have been. but i recognize that i am still so held captive inside myself. still battling with myself. and i know that i could not love at present, in the romantic sense. i would have no love to give but the love of sick patients. the ill needy type love. which never turns out well in the end. do i make sense? sometimes, especially when tired, i doubt that i lace these thoughts together coherently. i know that if i ever ran away again, i would miss more than i was missed. but perhaps that is just my nature. perhaps i am just overwhelmed by this feeling of love that i have for certain people. and when its good, its a beautiful feeling. and when they're gone, it nothing but pains. still, perhaps that is a blessing . . . that i am able to feel so intensely. i wish that i could offer you some kind and wise words of advice. but i cannot. i am young and mostly naieve. i know little of what exists. but in this ignorance, perhaps i am blessed again. in this ignorance, i can hold fast to a belief that love abounds for everyone. even that rare type of love for which you search.
from jpoet112 :
"And falling will happen, most likely silently only noticed when someone falls expecting to be caught by one who has always been there. Noticed only for the lack of my duty fulfilled instead of noticing for wanting me for me." -- I would write something long to explain this feeling. But you have allready explained it. I would merely be repeating the same words in different orders. And this feeling is why I would want to be missed. Longed for wildly, or otherwise. I'd want someone to find my letters in an old cardboard box in the attic. And read me. And finally, for the first time, come to understand me. Years after the fact. Years after I was gone . . . to read those letters . . . and understand how much I cared. How much I would have shared. For them to hear a song on a fall day, and remember me. And wonder where I was. I just wonder if anyone out there who I used to know is wondering of me. And that's where the urge to run comes into play. The longing for oblivion. Because . . . in this great irony known as life . . . it would only be fitting that someone would seek me after I was gone far away, and never again to return. I know concretely of people in this world who love me. But I often wonder if they ever loved me in the same fashion as I loved them. I am young. And the world is wide. And I know there exists somewhere in these vast expanses . . . a love that returns.
from jpoet112 :
when i was a boy, the clouds eclipsed the sun on a June day, and i could feel myself dying. though it was a purely temporary setting in of grey, and would go as quickly as it had come, and return the world to the light of summer . . . it mortified me. that's all i remember. i don't know if winters were always so bad. they might have been good at one time. but they grew worse. and ithaca was no help. but the sun of san diego was false to me, and they had no trees. so i came back east. and i'll bear the winter. i'll bear it in ithaca again next year. because there, i have those people who are my light and my warmth. - - - i'm caught up with this longing, not really for someone, but for peace with myself. and that is a commodity in short supply. surely, i want somebody with whom i can share all of this world. the pains and joys and all the wonders. i want someone who understands me. but i have yet to truly understand. i just wish to feel less fragmented, less at war with myself. - - - at times, you say and think strangely close to me. especially in your talking of the greyness and the sun. - - - catching the catcher in the rye. it is a large rye field. and i would never doubt the existence of other catchers, even if only the outskirts. other catchers who would catch you. as you would them. - - - all i can do is thank you. for saying that you would want me found. i appreciated it. peace. - jonathan.
