from evilsuccubus :
World War Hulk isn't bad, so far. As with Civil War, I much prefer the Front Line titles opposed to the main mini-series. I basically pick up whatever catches my eye. I tend to stay away from the DC titles (though I may make an exception to read the Black Canary/Green Arrow wedding fiasco) and Marvel is, by far my favourite. Of the "indie"-ish titles I've read (and when I say "indie" I mean not published by Marvel or DC): Witchblade, Invincible, Black Summer (just the preview though!), Chronicles of Wormwood, Madame Mirage, Hack/Slash. Looking to that list I realize that these aren't all that "indie" at all. Any suggestions?
from evilsuccubus :
I didn't mind Civil War. I was disappointed because they could have done so much with it (and they never did) and then it just fell flat. (Nevermind the ending which was just a giant cop out.) Not to mention how in the hell are they going to get out of this one -- it feels as if they changed the entire Marvel universe and now they have absolutely no clue what to do with it. Specific artists don't really stand out for me in that I've never purchased a book just for the artist. (Though I have picked up a number of different titles because they have a writer I adore doing the work -- Bendis, Loeb, Straczynski, and Morrison.) I do know that I'm not a fan of whomever's doing World War Hulk (I want to say Romita Jr. but I could totally be wrong about that).

oh i'm sorry you seem to be in limbo. I used to read your diary a long time ago; I'm catching up now and looking forward to new postings. hope your limbs feel better after today!
from yeahimadork :
Heh. I knew you'd have something to say about that picture I posted. For what it's worth, however "naturally skinny" she might be, she does look too thin. Flat-chested or not, I don't believe every bone in a woman's upper body should be so prominently visible. I'm not saying she should get fat, but five or ten pounds wouldn't hurt. She's not the only one... a lot of young actresses are dangerously thin now. Kate Bosworth is practically invisible if you see her from the side. It's scary.
from lostincoma :
Being a two-faced snot is practically the same as being a strong woman in this culture, so...:D Believe me, I'm ready to hear more about Obama (more than the cocaine use, anyway). I'm just concerned there isn't all that much more to hear, due to his lack of political experience and achievement. Sure, he's got his hope and his faith and his audacity of said hope and faith and he's young and attractive and vibrant, but he's eventually going to have to give us something more tangible than that. Our store doesn't have an anti-theft system. We have video cameras, but that obviously doesn't deter some people. Since we don't do anything electronically (no scanners, no barcodes), there's really no way to up the security. Which is lame, because I have to wait until the guy physically walks out of the store with merchandise before I can call the cops. Eh. The perks of small businesses, right?
from lostincoma :
'Minge' is the best word, EVER. Ever since that South Park episode about Oprah's vagina, I can't use that word without cracking the fuck up.
from stepfordtart :
'Quim' is quite well used here - more so than 'pussy', I'd say. 'Minge' is also quite popular, especially in a jokey way. If we're in the sack, BF and I would usually say 'cunt', a proper Anglo Saxon word. Tell it like it is, I say! s x

from zuzus-petals :
Berkeley Breathed is the bomb! And on another note, I DID indeed see a mountain lion on the Steep Ravine Trail up near Pantoll Station on Mt Tamalpais proper. I had to fill out a siting report form.. when I asked the ranger if sightings were common here he said, "well I've worked here for fifteen years, but people like YOU seem to see them all the time." And there was a space on the form for the ranger to fill out, after the sightee left, about the "credibility" of the sighting. I scowled. -Zu

from zuzus-petals :
And another thing (in addition to the response I left you in the comment section of the post a boobs), now that I think about it a little more, Ed's boss a few jobs back was an F2M. I worked with an M2F who was my volunteer several years ago (former Navy boy turned fabulous!) and once we had an M2F receptionist at the office. I've had a long running fewd with a tranny, and it's funny because until I started thinking about how many trannies I know did I realize that I rarely think of people as the label (as a "tranny") and just simply as who they are. You know, they're just "Mary" or whoever. I've never thought about it much, but maybe I know a disproportionate number of transexuals and transvestites, etc. But when I say disproportionate, I wonder relative to whom and what's "proportionate."
from zuzus-petals :
I accidentally dropped a few people once when I was neurotically alphabetizing my buddylist.. someone said, "hey! did I do something to offend you?" I wrote, "what are you talking about?" I never thought to look at the people who list me as buddy's... I guess it wouldn't surprise me if I become mundane overtime.. I imagine to some people I do... I feel that same way about myself sometimes! Re: that realphabetization thing.. I'm sure I lost some blogs I used to read frequently... but it's okay... I know I'll find them again via banner ads or what have you.. or random coincident. It's just bound to happen. I suppose you can't change the way you feel about someone dropping you from their list yet continuing to read, but I don't understand the feeling - it doesn't make sense to me - I'm not saying I think your feelings are wrong, merely that i don't understand the reaction/feeling. But even with that, I hope you feel better. - Zu
from blazingstar :
Thank you. I really do appreciate the apology. At first I figured I would just let the whole thing blow over, and I wasn't planning on locking up. But I started thinking about your readers coming over to my diary to make their own judgments about me. That idea just weirded me out. Especially because I am respecting your wishes in not reading your diary from now on, even to see if people have been leaving you reassuring comments on that entry. So I just felt that it would be unfair for your readers to check out my life and then leave you comments about me in your diary, since in a way I am "locked out" of your diary (banned from reading it) and wouldn't be able to respond to their comments. See what I mean? Also, just so you know how ridiculous and silly this whole thing is, the reason why I kept checking your diary for a couple days after we "dumped" each other is that I HAD seen you write angry entries about people in the past and I was worried you had written something about me. I was not trying to creep you out or piss you off, I just wanted to make sure you hadn't written something about me. Funny, huh. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to write to me. I'm not unlocking right now but if you want to see the entry I wrote explaining why I locked up, I'd be happy to send it to you.

Your comments section accused me of spamming (damned lies!), so here's what I wrote: "Oh, I guess you're not the best person to ask whether I should bring one (or perhaps several, simultaneously) of these into a relationship, then: http://www.extremerestraints.com/fucking-machines_48/ (Oops! Too late! Already have! And they're great!) Love, R xxx"

So who is this new blogger you keep raving about. I'm interested in checking it out...that is if you're willing to share.
from summerroll :
I just have to wonder how the conversation went that led up to, "hey, did you know I masturbate to anime porn?" Which, by the way, I have seen (thanks to the Museum of Sex). I didn't too much like the exaggerated, pulsating members or the pre-pubescent females. But then again, not really a fan of porn in general. Different strokes.
from summerroll :
Hey you. Just wanted to know what you thought of last week's V. Mars. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire hour. Probably one of the best episodes. And have I told you how much I love Logan? Loved how he got himself thrown into jail to handle those bastards himself.
from hissandtell :
Oh, you're so very cute; I just want to squeeze you until your eyes pop. (Would that be wrong?) And perhaps your gorgeous Sara and I might share the buttocks for that spanking - really, I'm afraid one little paddle would not be anywhere near enough for me - or for you, for that matter. (And would you hurry up and put up your Comments feature already?) Love, R xxx

from lostincoma :
I think equality is harder than we think to achieve in this country. Why don't black comedians get shit for using white racial slurs? Because there's a history in this country of the white man dominating the black man. So when the 'underdog' race wants to make fun of the historically dominant one, it's perceived to be not as bad as the other way around. It's the same thing with women (who've been oppressed for decades) and men (who've been the oppressors).
from lostincoma :
Ok, firstly, work isn't the place for socializing. I've learned that people who go looking for friends/company at work are quickly disappointed, because most people go to work to do a job and get paid without getting anything meaningful out of it. And second, whatever job you get after this, I would suggest you take a day shift, i.e., get into a job where you can interact with customers more. There are those who enjoy working in a room by themselves, away from everyone, but I think people like you (and myself) prefer jobs where we can work with people. Every job I've had has dealt with providing some sort of service to people; I may complain about some of them, but hey, the good customers are pleasant to work with and the bad ones keep things interesting. So. Just something to think about.
from hissandtell :
You know you can save your notes to (a number of, in your prolific case) diary entry page thingies before you delete them? I used to be diligent about such things, but then I just got a Supergold membership with a Comments section instead and it made life wonderfully uncomplicated. Have you thought about doing that, sausage? Would you like me to give you one (a Supergold membership, silly) for Christmas? Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Also, I'd probably leave you more feedback if you deleted some of your notes so they didn't take quite so many hundreds of years to download! It takes long enough on broadband and is perfectly impossible when I'm on dial-up. So there. (But I still love you anyway, you spiky little thing.) x
from hissandtell :
Well, I for one would miss you awfully if you left, darling. You are the one constant bright guiding star of honesty and reason in the dark dismal firmament of confusion and treachery (or something). Also, I like hearing about your testicles. Love, R xxx

from lostincoma :
I actually have a take on the whole Britney thing. She's a southern girl and I know southern girls...and ever since she got pregnant the first time, I had this feeling she just wanted K-Fed for his sperm. A lot of women are like that, they want their 2.3 kids before a certain age, so when that age rolls around, they grab the nearest dick and get working, then kick him to the curb. I say good for her. I only feel sorry for all the shit that she's gotten - people give her shit for dancing half naked in a music video, but when she makes a 180 and starts a family, they still give her just as much shit. Seems to me the general public can't make up its mind. D-land...if you want to quit, quit. The thing is, I feel like you just say that to warn or threaten people into commenting. The truth of the matter is, people *do* have lives, and that *is* a perfectly fair excuse for them not to comment. Fucking hell, I would *hope* my readers have better things to do than comment on my entries. I think maybe you're making it into something bigger than it is. A lack of comments doesn't necessarily mean you're a failure at blogging. Some people don't have a response to every subject you discuss. Others don't have time (you'll find that I mostly comment on my days off, as that's when I have more time). Hell, I write book review entries every month and nobody even READS them, but I don't care because...it's not like a popularity contest or something. I write about books because I like them, and if you're not getting anything out of what you write, maybe you should consider quitting, because you can't count on other people to provide that satisfaction for you.

Re: eating disorders, I'm recommending 'Wasted' by Marya Hornbacher. Unlike most memoir writers, she can actually *write*, and it's a really honest account of ED.

Hunting for a job sucks ass. So good luck. Although, I must say I'll miss the soap apera that revolves around Crotch Rot, Stinky, and the others.
from lostincoma :
PHILIP ROTH, not Dr. Phil. Nice try, though. You did nail the rest pretty well - I work 34 hours a week, am working on two full-length manuscripts, and I spend my spare time reading or doing chores/running errands. You're right, that does sound pretty fantastically lazy.
from lostincoma :
lol. For someone who's unemployed, you really are a big advocate for the common working man. But seriously, I think you have it backwards. I've worked with a lot of elderly people at my jobs, and none of them came to work because they had to - they simply did it to get out of the house once in a while. I know I don't have to tell you how dull and empty things can feel when you don't have the obligation of work or school, and while some people might have to work, many of them do it to feel like they're still an asset to society.
from lostincoma :
I'm not denying she had the right to say what she said, nor am I advocating the criticism of those who voice unpatriotic opinions (and for the record, she wasn't at all voicing a rare opinion - I don't know what rock you're living under, but Bush criticism is pretty prevalent in this country). I *do*, however, advocate criticizing her for the completely empty and childish nature of her statement. It's common sense - even Natalie herself has admitted she would have said something more intelligent, had she known how much attention it would get. It's not really that confusing - I'm all for free speech, just as much as the next person, but I'm also for using that right to voice ideas that are coherent and mature and productive. People don't seem to understand that free speech shouldn't literally mean speech that is unrestrained and void of meaning, speech that isn't more carefully thought out before brought into the world.
from lostincoma :
With the Photobucket thing, you mentioned you still don't know how to post pics...I'm assuming that means you didn't see my note explaining the process, so...*points down*. And it might help to create sub albums for the convention stuff, so it's more organized. As for the Dixie Dumbasses, people like Natalie are the reason Bush haters aren't taken seriously. You have a huge crowd's attention and the chance to say something meaningful, and all you come up with is "We're ashamed he's from Texas"? Please. We're not in third grade anymore, and shotgun comments like that only make the president look better for not stooping to petty insults.

Ok, I got totally mushy with all the puppy pictures! Especially the Newfoundland shots - that's one of my favorite breeds. I especially liked the picture of Sara holding the black puppy. Nice pictures. :)

from lostincoma :
Funny you mention Donnie Darko, as I've recently been meaning to read Graham Greene's 'The Destructors' (the story the students discuss in one of the classroom scenes). The thing I really like about movies like DD is how every last detail is somehow relevant to what's going on in the film, and Greene's story is one such detail.
from lostincoma :
Oh, and who the fuck do you owe that much money to? Was there some mafia connection I missed somewhere???
from lostincoma :
Prejudgements aside, that convention really does look like a monstrous freak show. Nice pics. Sara is so pretty and her attempts to fly in the parking lot were hilarious. And I don't think I saw a single pic of you pulling a straight/normal face. Congrats on being the resident goofball. :D
from yeahimadork :
Awww, I love the pictures of you and Sara!! Finally you post some. Sheesh. ;) So, does that mean naked pictures are forthcoming? Just curious. :)
from lostincoma :
Good lord, you talk about posting pictures more than you actually *do* post them. Photobucket isn't very complicated, but seeing as you're old and not of the Internet generation...1: Upload pics to Photobucket. 2: Copy HTML link under each pic (Ctrl+c). 3: Paste HTML link into journal (Ctrl+v). No more excuses, now. :D

Poor Lauren. No wonder she's got all that aggression in her! And no, I dont bat for both teams - not sure how I gave that impression but hell, Im not offended. Mind you, thats not to say I havent once or twice....Awww, it was a long time ago and I WAS quite drunk! Whatever. s x

We got Scarlett over here in an ad on TV for something or other (cant remember what!). BF took one look at her and said "Ugh! She's a right dog!".

Tits are sooooo yesterday's news. It's all about the ribcage, baby.
from lostincoma :
I think I mentioned this before somewhere, but America is actually breeding less than the majority of other countries. The number of children per family has been steadily decreasing over time, and, if you were to discount immigrants, our population could actually start decreasing if our reproduction rate continued going down. Several countries in Europe have already started seeing a decrease in their non-immigrant population, and we're not too far off from where they are. I'm sick of people freaking out about the 300 million mark. Come on, China and India have over three times as many people and less space. Population isn't really our problem, it's (like you said) the way we utilize our resources. Regarding gay marriage, I'm not too worried about it. Give it 40-50 years, their rights will come around. They don't represent a large portion of our population now, so it's a tough battle, but we'll come around. Besides, with cohabitation and starting families out of wedlock being more accepted in today's society, even straight people aren't in any hurry to get married anymore.

If you can hang with subtitles, there is a film version of "Belle De Jour" that's pretty good. I haven't read the book (actually, I didn't know there was a book), but I'm curious to check it out. Also, if hooker bios interest you, read "The Happy Hooker" (by Xaviera Hollander of Penthouse letters fame). I found it at a used book store when I was about 13, and I got detention for taking it to school to read during SSR (a 20 minute period for reading before third period when I was in middle school). All the boys begged me to read it, but I never let them. Until one of them offered me $10 for it. Boys are so easy. :)
from stepfordtart :
Umm....(long pause)....I have some similar films. I have ::learned:: that its not as uncommon as you might think. Umm....(even longer pause)....Im not sure I want to say any more than that on the subject at the moment - my mother might be reading! You can email me if you're really that interested. s x PS The "language of painters"? Since my father and I are both qualified as such (and both now retired from the art!) I would say that the language of painters is mostly "You've missed a bit" and "Get the kettle on".
from lostincoma :
Harry and the Hendersons - \m/. Um...I'll grudgingly attempt to explain this, as it's way too early to be talking about bodily functions. The biggest misunderstanding guys have about periods is that it's some sort of continuous, faucet-like flow of blood for several days. It's not. Different women have different levels, obviously, but for the most part, any use of the verb 'sop' in conjunction with periods is highly inaccurate (and somewhat cringeworthy). Guys simply need to calm down and stop being too curious for their own good. As for female ejaculation, it's more or less been determined that it's not urine...but it's not exactly normal secretion, either. It supposedly has to do with stimulation of the G-spot, and while only a small percentage of women (1 in 5) can ejaculate, scientists speculate around half of women could achieve it with enough practice (eh...too much effort). So I would say that's the biggest mystery about it - not knowing what the hell the fluid is.
from stepfordtart :

You could just get the new job now, right? I mean, it's not like you're under contract with them, and I wouldn't think you'd be passing on any grand opportunities if you were to just quit. Because really, the sooner you get the money, the sooner you get out of the folks' place. And that'd be reason enough for me. :D

The bodywork can be as fancy as you like, but there MUST be slicks on the undercarriage. Anything else is just bad manners.

from zuzus-petals :
Maybe it's a chick thing.. Sometimes I think I do that to Ed, and what's good for the goose ain't always so great for the gander. If you said something like, "hey, remember when I said X and you told me I really need to accept that in you?" And she says "yeah, I remember that.. and?" Then you say, "so how did you feel when I said X.." And then have her tell you how she felt.. and you will probably be able to say, "you know, that's pretty much exactly how I felt when you said Z." Maybe that will gently let a light bulb go on and open a door for both of you to talk about that stuff and understand it and get passed it, etc. Sorry you're pissed. - Zu
from lostincoma :
In that case, I'll propose to you the 'live and let live' philosophy. In other words, practicing religion is as 'natural' to some people as porn is to you, and as long as Joe Catholic down the street or Joe Sexaholic upstairs don't bother me, why the fuck should I care? Coexistence and diversity are good, remember.
from lostincoma :
So basically, if a politician does something wrong that isn't as bad as the Iraq war destruction, we don't need to waste our time on them. Got it. Although now that you mention it, I don't believe we *can* punish him for anything, as the pages technically are not minors under D.C. law. So it's more so just a question of ethical behavior and, personally, I don't think sexual emails are professional OR ethical when you're on the job. Religion...so I guess you're just talking about Catholic churches. I don't claim to know a whole lot about religion, but I think you're only talking about a select group of people. Everyone uses religion in different ways, and it's not always as strict as you state it is, especially with all the more contemporary churches out there. In any case, I don't see how it's productive to put a porn store next to a school just because you don't want a church there. Oh, and I'm surprised you think porn is 'natural' in any sense of the word. At best, it's an exagerrated simulation of what sex really is. Odd, that viewpoint almost draws a *comparison* to the churches, doesn't it?
from lostincoma :
Ha. You ain't seen 'riled up' from me.
from lostincoma :
You complain there's no common sense, yet I'm having trouble finding the common sense in your argument. I don't see how replacing churches with (as you seem to think) the lesser of the evils, porn stores, solves the core problem of brainwashing kids. Religious brainwashing = bad...but how is sexual brainwashing any healthier for children? And you absolutely cannot relate Foley's scandal to the email spam you get at home because 1: Your email spam isn't sent by the government, and 2: You aren't a minor. If you got caught sending inappropriate comments to a minor at work, you'd likely be fired, and I don't see why politicians shouldn't suffer the same consequences. Surely there's some shock value in saying you'd like politicians to talk more openly about sex, but I hope that truthfully, you expect more professionalism from them than that.

Ah! The private Catholic school! A subject dear to my heart.

I though last night's premiere was great. Even if the ending was a bit predictable; I called it after the first 15 minutes when they introduced the roommate. I also figured something was up with the guy Papa Mars was transporting. All I know is that they better not hurt him or there'll be hell to pay! All in all a welcomed returned. I'm pissed that CW only ordered 12 episodes, but I guess 12 is better than nothing.
from stepfordtart :
Yah! Most of that entry meant absolutely NOTHING to me. But thats because Im foreign and old. Sadly, neither of those things can excuse the fact that I laughed out loud at your tale of the Doritos Fart Marathon. I am sad and need a slap. Or need to grow up. Probably both. s x
from summerroll :
I'd have to disagree and say that NSYNC was the best! I watched that show last night also, and I enjoyed it. It was almost as "good" as Flavor of Love. That family is screwed up. And although I have never liked Nick, I feel bad for him because his family treat him as if he's a walking, unlimited ATM. It's kinda sad to watch; but if they're willing to air their dirty laundry, I'm willing to watch it blow in the wind.

heeheehee, Fat 69ers and crap cars! Crackin' entry Gromit! My first car ws also a VW, a 1979 Polo with a whole in the floor which turned the whole thing into a paddling pool when it rained. It was the same pale blue that they make "invalid carriages" over here (not sure how well that will translate, but I can explain if you're interested). A total piece of shit! Just for the record - only old people drive autos here (like the Mondeo Shitmachine, recently deceased). All normal people drive a stick. If you were here I would let you drive my Mazda. A stick....and then some! s x

You know, I will admit that when a celeb sex tape comes out, I always want to see it. The Screech sex tape? HELL TO THE NO. I have no interest at all, even though his fiance said on Howard Stern that he's hung like a horse. Ick. Plus, the "celebrity sex tape" is such a publicity ploy now, that it doesn't even seem voyeuristic - it just seems like a sad attempt at grasping the last little bits of fame whatever has-been is on the tape.
from lostincoma :
You forgot Kelly, lol. And stop saying ridiculously untrue things about me or I'll sue you for libel! By the way, women CAN do things that don't make them come across as sex objects (Hilary Clinton, Oprah, J.K. Rowling, etc.etc.etc.), it's just that most women are too stupid to tone down their sexuality in public. Yes, I know it's a free country and women can walk down the street with their T&A hanging out. But that doesn't necessarily mean you *should* do that, and if you do, you really shouldn't expect respect from other men OR women.

Ha. To hell with satellite, that's what YouTube's for. He was okay on Real Time - didn't say anything spectacularly poignant. That's the sad case with Brad Whitford, his West Wing character is so insanely brilliant that anything he says or does in real life is unintelligent by comparison. By the way, I'm still betting you would love West Wing if you saw it. It's really an idealist's dream show and brings a hope that anti-Bushies can cling to. Or anybody, I suppose.

*often wonders if people who harp on marriage are really just afraid of it* Um...might I suggest focusing more on the job than on the people you work with?

Getting caught up in the drama is too draining, at least for me it was, and I realize how much more content I am when I just stay out of things.

You must be mistaken. I was talking about female news anchors, a category that neither Connie Chung nor her marital counterpart fit into.
from lostincoma :
Re. Katie Couric - This is how women in the media field have always been treated. The same thing happened to Barbara Walters, so many years ago, when she took over evening news. I think, if you're talking about broadcast journalism specifically, there's a reluctance to accept a female anchor because if you think about it, women and news reporting don't mix. Being an anchor requires an absence of emotional reactions to events, and women are stereotypically known to be the more openly emotional of the sexes. So the criticism makes sense, in that regard. Am I saying Katie Couric isn't cut out for the job? Absolutely not. I've seen her under pressure, and she handles herself with complete professionalism, as do many other female anchors. But there are some lesser known women anchors who still get too involved in what they're reporting, which is likely what keeps that 'women don't belong in media' notion going.

from lostincoma :
Do you really read people young enough that don't 'know' records?! I mean, most kids do seem to know them these days, since they're more into their parents' record collections than any current music. I denfinitely was for a while, and while records would probably be more of a hassel to deal with now, they were certainly a lot more fun than their later counterparts. Saw some clips of that dancing show. Wow...so I think your prediction trumped mine because I actually thought Tucker would outlast Springer. Maybe Tucker would have stayed if he actually took it seriously and didn't act like the whole thing was a joke. His wife is likely hiding in shame. As for Slater, I've been telling people for ages how great of a dancer he is (he did some dance scenes on SBTB), and if anything, he's gotten even better. I've never watched the show, but it always seemed unfair to me that they allowed celebrities who actually danced well to participate. Like Drew Lachey last year...of course he's gonna win, he was in a freaking boy band. And it's the same with Lopez, now. *shrugs*
from lostincoma :
Heated? lol. That's odd, because I felt like I was the only one *not* speaking out of anger here. Anyway...as Zuzu pointed out, it depends which media outlets you follow - but you strike me as pretty liberal so I assume you watch more MSNBC/CNN than Fox News (you also echo many of the same lines talking heads on those channels drill into people over and over). Which indicates you get mostly negative viewpoints of Bush...so it makes total sense that you wouldn't know what Bush has done right, whether he has or hasn't. And it's a matter of personal opinion too. Personally, I don't think every last decision he's made has been bad or stupid (he signed the Amber Alert into law and passed a lot of other legislation to help protect child victims of sex and kidnapping crimes, for one example), you just have to look beyond what the media tells you sometimes. And for the record, there was corruption in the government long before Bush came into office, so I don't know that that can entirely be blamed on him.
from lostincoma :
Actually, I don't watch Fox News. I prefer the lesser of the three evils (MSNBC and CNN), which are the liberally biased channels I was referring to. But if we're including Fox as an actual news channel (which I generally don't do), you would be right about the conservative bias.
from zuzus-petals :
(liberal bias in mainstream media, that slays me. That's like calling Pat Robertson left leaning or centrist. Seen Fox news lately?) Anyways, I did see a tribute statue in London recently, a new one, dedicated to the women who served in WWII. It was just a bunch of women's frocks - women's uniforms of various profession. I don't think that scene ever happened. It was just representative of the various types of work women performed. I guess I don't like ver-betum replicas of 'actual' events for statutory stuff mostly (probably) for the very reason you like it. It's a slice of the whole action as opposed to representative art. I think representative art can often capture more of the whole picture than sometimes an "actual" picture can. But honestly, I'm not trying to say I'm right - you're wrong, I think it's a preference thing. And on the gay marriage issue - a point of clarification, I LOVE marriage/committment ceremonies - I think the ritual in every community, formally announcing and celebrating one's relationship in front of one's chosen community - is beautiful and important. In other words, you could still hold Angelina's veil. My only issue is about involving the church and state. When some people, based on erroneous criteria, can't access and institution (ie. marriage) that makes it a discriminatory institution. There might well be valid parameters to discriminate within - but I wouldn't go to an institution that denied access to people of color and I won't participate in one that won't allow access to gay people. But the ritual and tradition of the ceremony in sacred and available to all - regardless of church and state issues. - Zuzu
from lostincoma :
The media is so 'nasty' towards Bush because there's this little thing called 'liberal bias' in most mainstream American media. If you don't know what that is, I suggest you find out because it can have quite a brainwashing effect. And I'm still not sure I understand how you're comparing 9-11 with Oklahoma City. Oklahoma got TONS of news coverage when it first happened. As much as 9-11? Of course not. But, if you recall, Oklahoma's attack was by some Joe-Blow nobody who was caught and tried within SIX MONTHS of the bombing. After six months, he was no longer a threat; after five years, bin Laden still is. We didn't have to send troops to fucking war across the world because of Timothy McVeigh. 9-11, on the other hand, well you know the repurcussions of that were much greater for much more people. That's just how the news works sometimes, Mike. The more people a story affects, the more attention it will get. If we did it your way and gave more attention to everything, you'd have a situation like the Jon Benet Ramsey case where one little girl murdered in America becomes this bloated national issue - the whole Missing White Girl Syndrome (that's racial/class bias, by the way). And for the record, as much as it pleases you to 'make people think', I'll have you know I do so quite regularly on my own, without the so-called 'inspiration' of Diaryland. :P
from lostincoma :
Not quite sure what the hell Anne Coulter has to do with anything I just said - it's not like I said it for the sake of controversy or anything. I'm not pro-Bush, so I emphasize this is NOT some attempt to defend certain actions he's taken. I'm just a bit sick of this all-cynicism-no-hope, fatalistic view Americans took on and subsequently blamed Bush for. Americans seem to think they play no part in this, that their negative reactions are justified because of decisions Bush has made that have affected our country. But 1: I think those negative reactions are more so to what the media (exagerratedly) feeds us than to what actually goes on in government, and 2: You react by your own choice, and whether you react with hope or with biting cynicism is up to you. I feel it's gotten to a point where Bush could save the world, and certain people would still not like him, so this constant bashing seems a bit pointless and counterproductive. As for the safety issue, it's obvious we can never be completely protected against attacks - public transportation is likely our most vulnerable thing right now. But with increased airline security (and all the makeshift bombs/knives/what-have-you we've intercepted since installing these measures), it's possibly safer to fly now than it ever has been, no? Really, I'm curious as to what you feel so unsafe about, what is it that's threatening your life and your loved ones' lives on a weekly basis enough for you to say you don't feel safe. Feeling unsafe in this country is your opinion and your right; if you want to keep your gas tank half full, 'just in case', or if you want to keep old antibiotics in the bathroom because in the event of a biological attack, it *might* save your life, by all means, go ahead (these are things people around here actually did after 9-11). But don't sit around claiming Bush has instilled that fear in you.
from zuzus-petals :
OMG, I'm reeling not from your post but from lost-in-a-coma's post contending that Bush had made American 'safer' and 'evaded' attacks. What attacks has the Bush Admin, actually, evaded. Safer my ass.. fascist police state, sure.. safer? no. Anyways. whatever. Anne Lostinacoma Coulter Jr speaks her/his mind. I understand your eyebrow raising and fatigue at 9/11 remembrances - but/and it's important to realize that if you did lose a family member or lived in New York and experienced the insanity, your cavalier dismisal of the events like resonate beyond callous. While I think you have valid points, I'm first drawn to the question of "why?" So firstly, it's not 'wrong' that people grieve the 9/11 tragedy, what's wrong, is as you say, there's is not some acknowledgement for other tragedies, perhaps more significant, perhaps touching more lives and reflective of greater human suffering and tragedy. It's not that this event is less worthy of note, it's that the others are also worthy of pause of rememberance. I think, however, if we paused to remember each anniversary of great human suffering, each day we'd spend a good deal of time going to dark places - and that's difficult for most people. Especially, as you aptly point out, since we've abandoned all connection of a labor movement and fighting for things like human rights and civil liberties. Where on the one hand we point out the lack of our compassion for human suffering (in how we don't acknowledge grander human injustices) but then mock efforts to actually correct human injustices (like the writing out of American history the role of African Americans.) Sure, again, you can be 'right' that there should be accurate and reflective diversity of the people's who helped to save people during the 9/11 event - not an actual "scene" per se, but an acurate "tribute" representative of the men and women and their racial and ethnic diversity - but the problem isn't that they're including an African American, the problem is MAYBE that there isn't, as you say, a japanese guy, a deaf guy, etc. Indeed tributory statues and memorials aren't supposed to be 'actual' scenes, they're supposed to be representative and tributory. If you've been to New York lately, you'll know if far from lilly white. I often compare the government's response to 9/11 with the government's response to A1DS. Imagine if rather than marshalling all resources to respond and act, instead the president didn't even mention the words "world trade center" for nearly two administrations. The silence and relative inaction of our government while thousands and thousands of Americans died in unspeakable, shameful and unforgivable. But/and the problem isn't that we remember moments in history when tragedy occurs and the citizenry watches and the government responds - however imperfect. The problem is those moments that aren't spoken of, where people turn a blind eye to the suffering and if there is a government response, it's inadequate and wanting. Where is the tributory statue for those battling poverty and where is our moment of silence for the thousands of men, women and children who died from that national tragedy last year? How is it that in this richest of all nations our inner cities house so many homeless and malnourished people? How is it that people can wave a banner of pride in one hand and watch our eldery try to find cheap drugs in Mexico and Canada for their conditions because we have an awful health care system.. well, because we don't have a health care system, that supports the health and well-being of our citzenry and especially doesn't address or value the needs of our elders and others with health frailties? But again, the problem isn't that those who need to mourn and remember a remarkable day in American history are validated by media and government in support of that need, but rather that there are far too many American tragedies that equal or surpass the breadth of human suffering experienced on that day, that we just don't talk about... - Zuzu
from lostincoma :
I can't stand the notes pages not doing paragraphs. 1. Christ, how can you think other tragedies don't get attention? The Oklahoma bombing, to use your example, is remembered every year and even had increased news coverage for the recent ten-year anniversary. If you're wondering why 9-11 gets 'more' attention, it's probably because it happened more recently, and because it had more of a global impact than other major U.S. tragedies. Plus, Oklahoma has arguably had some closure, since McVeigh was executed...so you really can't compare the two. Both groups of victims did receive settlements, though. 2. Without going on a globalization tangent, Lou Dobbs is a freaking idiot who probably secretly fears Asians taking his job. And 3. What you're talking about goes beyond whether you're pro- or anti-Bush. You're so worried about what the administration's doing wrong, but what worries me more is the spirit of Americans' reactions. Blindly following Bush? What about blindly following anti-Bush media? Put it this way - with all the millions they've spent on increased security, and with the cold hard FACT that we've evaded attacks since 9-11, if you still don't feel safe, that's more your problem than Bush's. Bush can spend money and pass laws - he CAN'T do anything to *make* you feel safe, you have to find that faith and hope on your own. So, be pissed all you want, but stop blaming it on the administration.
from lostincoma :
You know, there comes a point where we can't keep hiding behind the incompetency of this administration and all the cynicism the media feeds us. The fact of the matter is, we have NOT been attacked again since 9-11, and we've even intercepted potential attacks. To simply discredit EVERYthing the government does to step up security is the easy way out, and I really think you're selling yourself short if you just keep buying into this 'fear culture' that's been created. For the most part, I expect Americans to be more intelligent than that.

If you're looking to sell more of your comics, September-October-November is actually the best time of the year. Summer tends to be the worst for indoor leisure activity items and collectibles. Kids and young adults spend the summer doing more important things than buying comics. It's not until school starts that they need the distraction. Plus, you get the "ramp up" to Christmas/holiday season. That's how it works in my business, but I would guess that comics sell the same way.
from lostincoma :
Shipping only costs half of what you're charging, though. You can get materials for free and the actual shipping at the post office is like, 4 or 5 bucks. I guess if you don't have a U.S. post office in town, you don't have a choice and have to use a speciality store. It just sucks because you end up selling the comic for less than you could have.
from lostincoma :
I like flicking boys on the forehead...dunno if that qualifies as 'feeling up'. As for Ebay, I don't think it's so much a traffic problem as a pricing one. Half the comics you posted aren't selling for nealy as much as your starting bids, on other auctions. Why start it at $20, when the most it's going for in other auctions is $10? You have to at least somewhat match your prices with other people's auctions if you want people to bid. And stop charging so much for shipping!

from nikep :
You definitely want to ship the comics in bag and boards. Since you're shipping is Express and Priority mail, you should visit the post office prior to your mailing in order to gank a few priority mail boxes. Cut them up and lightly tape them around your comics. Make sure they still fit in either your own padded bubble mailers or in the flat cardboard Express and Priority mailers (included in the price already). I would also suggest in the future, though, to lower your shipping costs. It's one thing to offer Express mail to those who want to pay for it, but requiring high shipping costs will inevitably lower your maximum bids. Also, you should lower your margin on shipping costs (not charge over $9.00 for Priority Mail when it really costs about $4.00). Buyers factor in shipping costs when they make a purchase. So, high shipping costs will lower your maximum bid. Low shipping costs will increase your maximum bid. High shipping costs turn off many buyers because they think a seller is trying to graft money for nothing. You may be charging high shipping costs in order to try to make up for your fees to eBay/PayPal, but if you lower your shipping costs, you will make this money back with higher bids. Similarly, your insurance costs are grafting money. Any person can go to USPS.com and see that insurance costs $1.35 for $50, $2.30 for $100, $3.35 for $200, etc. So, you're charging someone at least a 50 % premium for insurance less than $50 or a 25 % premium for insurance over $100. There's really no reason for you to charge a premium on USPS insurance because you're not doing anything special. You should only charge a premium if your business depends on it (if it's part of your service).

yes, of course advocacy groups do everything they can to inflate numbers and/or present those numbers in the most compelling way possible, when advocating for funding for research, care programs and services.

And when you read literature on some of these conditions, it's unclear that the condition is actually a "defect" or merely a way of being that provided evolutionary advantages for some but in our less "hunter" and more "gatherer" society, these traits are deemed something to medicate as opposed to chanel. Is it "autism" or is it a desired trait for a "hunter"? Is it a defect or is it something our society and cultures needs to learn how to integrate, praise and work with? So, you get fidgety and distractable watching corn grow? There's something wrong with you for that? I'm not trying to minimize the very serious impact of severe autism - but everything and the kitchen sink is being tossed in that diagnosis these days. - Zu
from zuzus-petals :
I've never heard of beating autism, but in recent years people have come to call the entire "spectrum" of autism (from mild symptoms of ADD to aspergers syndrome to more classic severe autism) "autism." Including the largest possible spectrum of symptoms into 'autism' allows autism activists to rave about a massive increase in the rates of autism and say things like "1 in 7 children have autism" and the main, obvious, goal behind this folding in of everything and the kitchen sink is to confab numbers that look good in front of congress when advocating for $$ for research funding and services. While it's an excellent strategy (because everyone loves kids - it's like puppies and your grandma getting breast cancer.. who doesn't want to save granny or fluffy?), it's not a really sound way to devise equitable funding decisions and over inflating numbers like this ends up often pitting disease group against disease group in these small-pie battles. When people include everything from severe autism to a bit of day dreaming into the spectrum of autistic disorder... what does it really mean to "beat" autism? - Zu

A gain is your profit above your basis. However, when you sell an item of personal property for less than you initially paid, you recoginze a loss. So, if you sell a comic for $200 when you paid $100 for it initially, you have $100 in gains. If you bought a comic for $100 and sell it for $50, you have $50 in losses. As mentioned below, if you take a while to sell your comics and spread it out over 12 months, you have two options. 1) If you sell both your expensive and inexpensive comics in 2006, you would owe the net in taxes, therefore $50 x .28 = $14 in tax year 2006. However, 2) If you sell your expensive comic in 2006, you pay $100 x .28 = $28 in taxes, and then you sell your inexpensive comic in 2007, you get a loss of $50 and a tax deduction at the 15% tax bracket of $50 x .15 = $7.50 for a net payment to the IRS of $20.50 for the sale of both comics. SO..... if you don't match up your gains and losses, you could end up owing an additional 13% in taxes. This could be a significant amount of money considering your collection might provide you with gains, profits above your initial investment, of $5,000 or more. (That would be $650, or probably an entire month's rent in Champagne, right?)
from nikep :
Sam mentioned you're selling your comics on eBay, and I wanted to suggest that you should match your gains and losses as much as possible in the same tax year. Since capital gains on collectibles are taxed at 28%, it would be unwise to sell all of your most valuable comics in a different tax year than your least valuable comics. While the tax is only charged on the gain (income minus your basis), you can deduct up to $3,000 in capital losses from your taxable income if you have capital losses from selling collectibles. However, this deduction is probably going to be a lower tax rate (10%, 15%, or 25%, depending on your taxable income) than the collectibles capital gains tax rate of 28%. It probably won't be important if you aren't selling a large number of comics at a loss, but again, you'll want to sell those comics in the same tax year as the ones you sell for a gain.

I knew Lance was gay. He always seemed uncomfortable in his own skin. Even in that movie he did, "On the Line" (don't ask why I know that), his kissing scenes were beyond awkward.

On the other hand, I suppose hatred of one's job is a universal feeling we can all relate to. And why this is relevant to me, I don't know, because I happen to have no complaints about anything at the moment. Maybe THAT'S the reason I can't update, lol.

I can't imagine you spend 16 hours working out, reading, thinking about sex and playing with dogs. And I think there are always two sides to every breakup.

Again, it's SEACREST. And yeah, I may not necessarily care for the show(s) he hosts, but I think he's one of the better young guns in television media right now. America apparently has a hard time hiring TV personalities who can do more than read a cue card without stuttering (Larry King absolutely gets on my nerves), and I think Seacrest does very naturally well in front of the camera. Then again, such is the case with most radio-to-TV hosts (Carson Daly's another one, IMO, especially his talent for interviewing). I also think Vanessa Minnillo (who's apparently on every news/talk show known to man) is really good at the job. And I guess it doesn't hurt that she's fucking gorgeous.

I'm feeling rather verbose today. Personally, I don't feel my skills have ever been exploited at any job I've had...I mean, I think you get what you sign up for. You work in an Albertson's and you WILL be made to do everything from taking customer complaints to cleaning the bathrooms. Which, in the case of strip clubs, is why I blame women just as much, if not more, than I blame men. Saying public displays of nudity for financial gain is empowering is a joke. It's an excuse to make you feel less shameful about doing it. If you're an exhibitionist, fine, strip for your boyfriend, invite the neighbors over for a stripping party, whatever. You don't need to do it in front of strangers, who, after watching you, proceed to place monetary value on your body. It just reeks of negative, traditional values. I used to be skeptical about it myself because it is a seemingly extreme viewpoint in this day and age. And I think it's easy for people to brush off the notion that strippers and actresses who pose nude, etc., influence all those ten-year-old girls who are dressing promiscuously. But as much as we want so badly to ignore it, the connection is there.
from lostincoma :
The parrot would eat the Silly String and need CPR. And I'm inclined to think strip clubs aren't what you think, either. I haven't been to one and I haven't done a poll; fair enough. But I've known girls in college who stripped to feed their kid or to pay their tuition or what-have-you, and I can guarantee you from the way they talked about their jobs that they would take a cashier job at WalMart if it paid as much money. What's the statistic, something like 85-95 percent of strippers are sexually assaulted at least once on the job? Wow, some power they hold. The control thing is all an act; I'm pretty sure they'd rather not have anonymous men leering at them when they bend over to pick up a dollar bill their body has apparently been deemed worthy of, and I'm pretty sure that when they're giving you a lap dance, they really don't care what you look like and are just picturing the good the resulting money will do for them. Seriously, this whole 'power' thing is such bullshit because if prancing around naked in strip clubs or on magazine covers really did put you in control, why aren't more men doing it? Something to consider, IMO.

Most illness and disease today is caused by lifestyle, and it totally makes sense because there are lots more chemicals to put in your body than there used to be. As for rap music, you really should turn off the radio/MTV. The sort of 'intellectual' rap still exists, it's just outside the mainstream now. And speaking of music with bad values, something tells me you wouldn't be so opposed to that 'female promiscuity' message if it came from someone a little more attractive than a mainstream rapper *cough*NellyFurtado*cough*.

I don't think the president of Cristal is a racist. He thinks rappers are a lower class than the rich Europeans that drink it, and in his mind, that's demeaning to his product (I think Coach, Gucci, and Louis Vitton probably all feel the same way). When the ghetto rappers that talk about bitches and bling talk all their fans into running out and spending thousands of dollars on their products, the prestige and exclusivity of their products is diminished. I don't like it, but I think that's probably the truth. Everyone says kids have to say no to drugs because they're not legal and, more importantly, not taxed. I think the shit served in school cafeterias today is probably worse than any joint they'll smoke, that's for sure. Um. I think I'm done now. Have fun in Indiana!!

Your phobia of female defacation is amusing, one, because you're the only guy I know who has said phobia, and two, because it's ten times more disgusting when men do it anyway.

It's a good use of one's time if you don't have anything else to do. I can't dog on it because I can only imagine how nice it'd be to retire young. Besides, 70-hour work weeks are becoming more of the norm these days, anyway. Oh, and you mentioned D.C. How long ago exactly did you visit, anyway?!

lol. I didn't mean that to come across harsh. I was in a hurry and bad diction reared its ugly head. That or you just need a sarcasm filter for my notes. :D I'm just sick of how gay people are often treated as some sort of unique spectacle to be observed, because there's nothing especially fascinating about them that's different from straight people. They fall in love, fuck, cheat, break up, pay taxes, just like we do. I wasn't surrounded by ANY homosexuality growing up, nor was I taught what to think of them. Even now, there are hardly any gay people in my social network...and yet I've never felt any overbearing need to watch them show affection for each other. How is a man kissing a man different from a man kissing a woman, when we're all just people, one and the same? If you've seen one couple's PDA (straight or not), you've seen ALL couples' PDA, and it's either all adorable or all disgusting, depending on your personal taste. The whole injustice of keeping gays from having equal rights as straights comes from others' insistence that gay people are somehow 'different' than straight people, so it just bothers me when anyone so much as implies homosexual relationships are different from heterosexual ones.
from lostincoma :

Well I think it is racist to imply that black kids are the only ones who think they're entitled to everything, because that notion is something that spans across all races in our generation. White, Hispanic, whatever, kids these days are spoiled a lot more materialistically, so much so that they grow up expecting their parents (and the world) to just give them everything. Hell, with the boomerang trend now, college graduates move back home as though they expect their parents to support them. We're a lot luckier than past generations, in that sense, but it obviously doesn't prepare us for the world. The thing with The View is pretty sad. It just ended more fucked up than it should have, and while I'm still not sure why they'd fire Star Jones (arguably one of the smarter women on the show), it's too bad she couldn't have gone out with more dignity. But goodness Mike, for someone who doesn't watch the damn show, you seem to have some oddly strong feelings about it. And, creepiness of posing nude and pregnant in public aside, I do think that's the best I've ever seen Britney look in a long time.

You talk like you went to college in the 50s, lol. Is it really that taboo to talk about sex these days? I mean, most of my sociology classes were filled with porn documentaries and sex lectures. We even watched a film once about the stereotype that old people don't have sex and it showed graphic sex scenes between the elderly. But it all seemed pretty tame to me. I guess everyone hits desensitization at different times. But personally, I never saw anything wrong with keeping certain aspect(s) of life private. Freedom of speech is less about laying it all out on the table and more about knowing the time and place for everything. Especially in group situations...we seem to have become a very voyeuristic culture, but some people just don't want to hear about their friends'/classmates'/siblings'/parents'/whatever sex life. I don't know. People just can't seem to go to a counselor or their partner when they have a sex question anymore.

The numerous movies and documentaries we make on African issues can attest to that. I think our government does want to help, but there's always been a clash with the African government, possibly preventing us from helping as much as we'd like to. AIDS is a good example. We do what we can to help, but with the government often being so resistant, it's hard.

It's not like I'm too young to have seen those videos, you know, lol. I do agree there was some innovative stuff to come out of the 80s. My point was that people seem to keep putting that decade on a pedestal, as though it's *more* creative or has *more* innocence or something. For every creative/unique/whatever video to come out of the 80s, there's one just as creative/unique/whatever to come out of the 90s. That's all I'm saying. And if you want my personal opinion, music videos were probably the *worst* musical trend to come out of the 80s anyway, so if you blame anything for the supposed blandness of today's music, blame music videos themselves.
from lostincoma :
Is the site too top secret for you to post the link or something? lol. My brother and I were talking about this recently - how everyone thinks the decade of music they were most in tune with is the best. For me it's the 90s and while I'm in no way saying it's the best quality-wise, it's the decade when I was really into music. I'm not really jealous of the 80s, as the ratio of decent shit to guilty pleasures was pretty 50-50 (in fact I think the whole reason so many people like it in the first place is the guilty pleasures, not so much the quality stuff). And I'm not too much into this decade either, though I wouldn't say all creativity is lost. Some people don't realize that these days, you have to turn OFF the MTV to find the good stuff. I believe in clinging to one's past (in a healthy way, of course), but why do we have to be so pessimistic about the current generation all the time? Yeah, it's not the 80s. Nor is it the 90s or the 60s. But it's there and it's selling and it's still changing people's lives the same way past music did.

Porn stars...I don't really understand what's so fascinating about them. I mean, of course they lead normal lives with normal feelings, just like circus clowns and gym teachers and gynocologists lead normal lives with normal feelings. Sure, a lot of them have troubled pasts, which may indirectly lead to jobs in which they seek attention from men. But hey, even having a fucked up past is 'normal' these days. I think it's easy to define porn stars by their professions because of the eroticism of their jobs, but if you disregard what they do for a living, I'm sure you *would* find people with homes and kids and dogs and what-have-you. They work and get paid just like we do, they just follow a different set of rules in their workplace. And the nudity issue doesn't surprise me either. Why would they be uncomfortable walking around like that when they already do it on camera? I remember an interview in which Elizabeth Berkley said she was nude so much on the set of Showgirls that it almost felt weird to start wearing clothes again. So...I dunno, I think it's one of those things you adjust to and eventually forget about.

Another post titled "The Origin of Love" that does a fine job too. Or my personal favorite, incredibly revealing, "Snow Globe." But I don't think any of those tell you where I live, if I'm married, or what I wear on my feet! I lived in San Francisco for twenty-some years and moved to the North Bay (Marin County - to the land of hot tubs and traitors, organic farming and harmonic convergences.) I used to wear Doc Martins.. I still have them in my closet. I think I've worn them maybe two or three times since that fated move northward. I don't even know if my orthotics will fit in the spiked boot! I threw away my leather jacket last year. My hairdresser was hit by a car and broke his back. He used to trim my mohawk. I haven't had a haircut in years (literally.) I look like a suburban house wife? I'm very loyal to Puck - he recently started working again. We'll see what happens! Do I read alot? I used to be a book worm - I studied literature in college those many moons ago. I don't read as much as I once did - more magazines now. I spend more time walking on the mountain and taking photographs. Did I mention I've never been married? Ed and I have been dating for close to eleven years and neither of us are sure we're ready for the committment of marriage.. heh. While sometimes I think a ceremony would be a neat thing, I don't think I could participate in an institution that discriminates.. so until gay and lesbian people are allowed to partake of the institution within the context of their chosen relationships, I'm boycotting it. It's a small gesture, but I wouldn't attend a school that didn't allow black people to attend either. Do I listen to music? You know.. as I've gotten older, unless I'm in the right mood, in the right place, at the right time, I more and more experience music as just noise.. and I prefer more natural noises these days. That's a strange thing to say because I loved music, worked in record stores in my youth, was a music junky. When I paint, I listen to Leonard Cohen. He's just poetry to me. I adore, adore, adore Elvis Constello... but I discovered that when I listen to too much Elvis, I become somewhat maudlin and existential. I swoon into Patty Smith's poetry, though it makes me feel a bit self destructive. When the neighbors piss me off, I play Fear loudly, pointing the speakers at their place. On a long car ride I like the Old 97s. I recently picked up a Death Cab for Cutie CD - hated, hated, hated it! I'm liking that O-Brother-Where-Art-Thou folksy music these days. It's good cooking music. But really, like I say, I don't listen to music much anymore. I prefer the crickets or just silence. I've stopped trying to be something. I rebel, to some degree, against what I am. The best thing on this planet is my dog. I'm trying to cultivate a simpler, yet richer and deeper life - in the imfamous urgings of Ms. Emma Goldman. I don't know if I'm succeeding. Does that fill in blanks? -Zu

Pussycat Dolls = Guilty pleasure. *agrees about the lead singer* And for what it's worth, the Spice Girls were quite a bit more than a one-hit wonder. Large areolas tend to scare me. Most writers usually do have to lose some of their sanity before they can really get to the core of their craft, and it's something I've struggled with in my writing - how does one with a privileged upbringing in the suburbs write something worthwhile? I'm currently just working with what I've got and it doesn't seem to be turning out so bad. You should write (you'll need a good editor to tame that obsession with transitions and prepositional phrases - don't worry, I don't charge much :D)...or at least exercise some creative energy. I remember you talking about your dislike of 9-5 jobs because they stifle your creativity - well, you should use your spare time to actually create something then (fyi: blogging isn't really a creative effort unless you're actually posting your work in it). Actions speak louder than words, you know. :) And I'm feeling deja vu now for some reason, so I'll stop.

Soccer is, by far, the sexiest sport ever. Americans really don't get it. Why is football so macho when the players wear two tons of protective gear? Why is baseball so hardcore, when it's just a bunch of men in tight pants chasing each other around? I played soccer for eight years and never had the desire to play any other sport, no matter how many times I got called a lesbian. Soccer, to me, is the real hardcore sport. You run until you fall over and can't breathe, and that's a workout I never got playing other sports.

I did apply at Barnes, actually (there isn't a Borders in the immediate area). It was between Barnes and the gift store and I ultimately chose the latter because they pay better, they're closer to home, and they're really laid-back. Oh, and they have a better discount. Your Barnes gives 35 percent?! Every location I've ever applied at only gives 20. And also, like you said, I think the novelty would wear off if I was in a bookstore every day (either that or I'd be in debt from buying so many books). I remember liking malls as a teenager, until I worked in one for a few years (at the market research place).

The political stories in Rolling Stone are often too one-sided for me to read, but I actually found the Duke story pretty interesting.

from zuzus-petals :
Actually, honestly, I don't think you're kinky at all. But I think Ibsen's Peer Gynt will appeal to you because IT is a bit kinky and pervy (sex with a beautiful woman who turns into a pig-like troll, etc. etc... heh.) Those aren't tattoos on my arms. I only have one tattoo and it's not visible in the picture (though I've been contemplating a second for awhile now... ) I have freckles - spots - and they can create shadows and patterns. Perhaps the most distinctive is a line of them that follows an invented seam down my stomach, ending at my belly button. My brother and sisters use to tease me, "Zuzu stood behind a cow on a windy day!" My mother would console me, "These are angel kisses!" I would lament, "Ma, I've been raped." - Zu

My job - yes, well no one expected 'that', so I don't even know how to address it anymore. Like I said, I'm no longer going to defend it. It is what it is and I'm glad. West Wing - actually, you'd probably like it *because* of the politics. It's a real dose of optimism for the state of the nation, even if it is a fictional show. Besides that, it's just a smart show. No gimmicks, no cheap action or drama, just well-written TV. Now what was the question...oh, what makes for classic literature. Personally, I like writing that challenges me, whether it be by way of style, plot, characterization, etc. I'm not so much into genre fiction (horror, romance, etc.), and I definitely don't think genre writers like Stephen King belong on academic curriculums, as there's nothing especially challenging about him. Genre fiction isn't really subtle enough for school reading lists. There's nothing to discuss because it's already all out there on the page, if that makes sense. I *do* wish schools would throw more contemporary fiction into the mix, since there's definitely some more current stuff that's making waves and generating substantial discussion. That was one of my main complaints about my high school reading lists, along with the fact that we read SO much American fiction and not nearly enough foreign writers. I'm on a tangent here...I'm not sure what makes for classic literature. If you're talking about what should be read in school, I think books that have histories and/or generate questions and debates are good choices. If you're talking personal taste, I value mature writing (whether complex or simplistic) and something that makes me think, rather than something that merely entertains.

hey buddy! hope you enjoyed your weekend. what books are you reading? thanks for the christian bale tidbit! HELLO! lol. i guess i should go back and read the discussion on sex education, it sounds interesting. hope you're doing well! xo
from lostincoma :
Drama you experience vicariously through coworkers is the best drama there is, if you're careful enough not to get caught up in it yourself. And I was thinking about the sex thing...it seems like people who were taught one thing as children gravitate more heavily to the other side of the spectrum as adults. I've known people from both sides of the issue - those who were fully educated on sex (some of them at inappropriately young ages) tended to be more reserved when expressing their sexuality, while those who were taught to suppress their urges grew up and rebelled against that idea, becoming more open about it. I suppose I'm pretty lucky to have not been educated on either of those extremes, as it's allowed me to grow up with a pretty middle-of-the-road stance on the issue.
from summerroll :
And furries creep me out. It's just too fucking weird.
from summerroll :
How would I change it? By telling them the truth. I'm lucky that I don't work in a formal education setting, because that limits what you can teach/say to kids. But because I'm more of a mentor/friend than a teacher, the kids feel more comfortable talking to me and some of my other coworkers about things like sex, and we can be more open and honest with them in our answers. It makes a big difference. The school systems don't get that kids are kids and they're gonna do what they want to do, despite what you tell them. However, if you only give them half of the information, you put them at a disadvantage. For instance, the schools talk about abstinence but they don't bring up birth controls or condoms. When it comes time for them to have sex for the first time, the don't even think about bc and they find themselves in trouble whether it's an std or a kid. And the rates of stds among middle school and high school kids, at least in Miami, are super high. My point, what they're doing isn't working and they need new strategies. Sorry for the long post!
from summerroll :
Sorry, premature note posting. Some of my girls think that you can't get pregnant the first time, or if you have sex on your period. Some don't believe that oral sex is sex and that you can catch stuff from giving it. Some actually believed guys when they were told that they didn't need to use condoms because he could pull out in time and even if she did happen to get pregnant she could just go to the hosptial and tell them she was ruffied and they'd take care of it for free without telling her parents. It's shocking how much these kids don't know, especially knowing the things they do.
from summerroll :
As someone who works with high school students, I know they need sex ed and not the kind they are currently getting.
from lostincoma :
You don't think that talking openly and casually about sex in the classroom would make kids more obsessed with it? If kids want to demystify sex, they should do their own research. But, believe it or not, not all teenagers are curious about sex. At 15, I wouldn't have been all that interested in a discussion about what sex was like because I wasn't interested in having it, and I guarantee you there are many other people that age who feel the same. Like I said, it's not okay to lead kids to believe sex is morally wrong, but it therefore shouldn't be okay to imply it's fun and exciting, either. Whichever stance you take, you're alienating somebody. That's the whole problem with the sex ed. debate in this country. People act as though we should either teach safe sex or abstinence - I say, why not teach both? That way, you're not alienating those who want to wait until marriage, but you're also not alienating those who don't. You have to look at it from parents' point of view, as well. How many parents do you think would be comfortable with their kids going to school and learning how good it feels to have sex? Hell, some of them aren't even okay with the more rational safe sex teachings. So I guess what I'm saying is that you should find answers to your questions if you're curious about the more subjective aspects of sex, but the classroom (a mandatory group setting, in which some people *don't* want to know about fetishes and whatnot) doesn't seem like an appropriate place for such discussions. There's already so much insecurity among high school students, the last thing I would think you need is your classmate describing how great anal sex feels when you're sitting there wondering what's wrong with you because you have no desire for anal sex. And, for what it's worth, I think the sex education I had in high school was pretty satisfactory. Maybe that's something that's changed since you were in school, but I frequently felt that safe sex measures were shoved down our throats, to the point where I consider myself well-educated on such matters. They didn't go overboard with it, but they hammered it into our heads enough to convey its importance. And I forgot what I was originally going to say...oh yeah, Coelho. I read The Valkyries a while ago and mildly enjoyed it. I'm more looking forward to reading Veronika Decides to Die, but The Alchemist is supposedly his most famous work.
from lostincoma :
I don't think we're in total disagreement here, if you reread my previous note. I think it's completely worthwhile to cover the technical nature of sex - how you can and can't get pregnant, contract an STD, how to properly use protection, etc. It's the more subjective stuff you talk about, like fetishes or how something tastes or feels, that I think should be kept out of classrooms. I agree that teachers shouldn't convey sex as a sinful act or call women who have it 'whores'. But at the same time, we shouldn't paint sex the other way around, as something that's acceptable and okay. If you're going to have sex education in classrooms, I think it's important to remain as neutral as possible. Like you said, kids are already pressured to be doing it at that age, and having someone come into a classroom and openly discuss fetishes would confuse them even more, possibly put *more* ideas in their head than they already had and pressure them more. Why do people need to know what something feels or tastes like before they actually do it? Isn't half the excitement of sex finding that out firsthand? I just think going into that kind of subjective territory is dangerous, especially in a group setting. Because then you get into the question of limits - where do you draw the line if you're discussing fetishes? S&M? Rape? Bestiality? The bottom line is, kids DO have different views when it comes to sex. Some think blowjobs are okay, some don't. Some want to wait until marriage, some don't. Some are into monogamy, some aren't. Teachers should respect those different views when doing sex education and present information on as neutral a plane as possible, tell them, "We know not all of you are doing this, but for those who are, we want to make sure you're being safe." Any personal choices beyond that, like whether or not you like being tied up, should be just that - a personal choice one makes outside the classroom.
from lostincoma :
In the age of 24-hour news channels, there's the risk of turning off your audience if you keep shoving certain stories down their throat - especially a story like New Orleans which seemingly hasn't seen any improvements since the hurricane (we can't say this for sure, as reporters will only give you one side of the story - yes, even Anderson Cooper). There was somewhat of a backlash like that with 9/11 - it got to a point where people started turning off their TVs because of the coverage overload. So, I dunno...I think American news is doing a decent job of keeping the story alive, without going overboard with it. The Iraq thing reminded me of this section I read in 'Blink' that talked about cops treating suspects unfairly/violently when they were caught after a high-speed chase - the rush of adrenaline from the chase can cause the cops to act out of code and become violent. Seems like the same thing happened in Iraq. Anyway...you know, you could just link back to one of your many other entries on blowjobs. :D Is that really something that should be detailed in school? I mean, it would probably be worthwhile to teach kids how to have safe sex but not necessarily how to have good sex, lol. At that age, what you do should really be up to you and your partner, not teachers. And I am alllll about early-morning grocery shopping. Especially Sunday mornings, while everyone's in church.
from zuzus-petals :
I think the farting and constipation are worth it if it results in clearing the fungus and not having to take the pills anymore. Each of us need to determine what an acceptable risk is and also understand that more about side effects and risk/benefits. Often, when you read side effects, it should tell you - generally - what percentage of people experienced those side effects. So if dizziness is experienced by 1% of the people in studies - it's still a reported side effect, and if you experience it it would be important to speak with a provider. That a side effect is listed, however, doesn't mean you'll experience it. The power of the mind should not be underestimated however. Placebo's are given in studies because people who receive them do better than people who receive nothing. This field of psychoneuroimmunology suggests that if/when you feel you're doing something positive for your health, you generally do better. The converse is also true. If you believe you might experience a laundry list of side effects, you're more likely to experience them. This DOES NOT mean that you shouldn't learn about possible side effects of drugs you may take and how to minimize those potential side effects and/or manage them should you experience them. It DOES mean, however, that one should learn about those side effects in a context - that includes learning about alternative options, their risks and benefits and making an informed choice of therapy. It's impossible to make an informed choice if you don't know your options and the risks and benefits of those options to compare. Okay.. enough of that. yeah... the farting and constipation is worth it - especially if it leads to a cure. - Zu

So, sociologically speaking, your sex is male while your gender tends to be more on the female side. I don't really think that's weird, though, as most people have characteristics of both genders. I don't think the stereotypical macho "women are on earth solely for my pleasure" guys are all that common anyway, so you're pretty normal. Sometimes, I really wonder about the place you live, by the way. Do you really encounter that many 'religious crazies' wherever you go?! I mean, coming from the Bible Belt, I know what it's like to sometimes be surrounded by that, but most people, religious or not, seem to be the 'live and let live' type. I think, if anything, it's taught me to be accepting of other people's beliefs. Besides, are the 'religious crazies' really anything to worry about? I've never seen any of them successfully convert people...most of us are able enough to exercise our own free will and form our own beliefs, anyway.

I suppose I should define what I meant by 'meatless'? lol. I don't know what it is, I just find it unattractive to see girls sucking in their stomachs. It's like they want to bare it all by posing nude, yet they still want to hide any evidence of some meat on their bones. Being sexy and bold, to me, is just putting yourself out there the way you are. Besides, seeing some flab would be a little less boring than what we're used to seeing, methinks. As for the Nelly Furtado thing, I was more so referring to the change in her music, as the music is what I'm assuming makes you want the album in the first place. I've only heard the single, but if the rest of the CD is similar, it sounds like she's descending into the cheaper-sounding realm of pop music (i.e. your Britneys, your Lohans, etc.). Again, it really makes you wonder how much image plays into what you're buying. I often look at CDs I've bought in the past and realize I might not own them if the artist didn't look the way they did.
from lostincoma :
I actually heard the Nelly Furtado single the other day - what the hell happened to her?! There are a lot of singers who Britney-ify themselves up to sell more records, but she's one of the last people I expected to do that.

Christina - I heard about this new album a while ago...kinda 50s style music, right? Good for her for trying to sell a different kind of pop music to the masses, I guess. Britney - to that, I say...does ANY first-time parent really know what they're doing? I was the first-born in my family, and my parents (who no doubt did an amazing job raising my brother and I) have admitted to me numerous times they had no CLUE what to do with me once they brought me home from the hospital. First-time parents pretty much always screw up and make mistakes (understandably so, since it's child-rearing is quite a unique and new experience) - Britney's just unfortunate enough to have said mistakes caught on camera. I won't go into the trailer-trash thing, as I had my own moment of realization about it the other day and was going to do an entry on it. :)

I fart all the time; in public too. I'm lucky because most of the time my farts don't smell. But when they do, good lord do they stink like holy hell! I enjoy running too because it makes the changes in my body that I want happen quicker. But it aggravates my ankles so much that I can't run everyday. I try to switch up between the running and the elliptical machine (love that there is little to no impact).
from zuzus-petals :
I am breathless over the whole boondock saints thing too. But on the subject of farting (which also reminds me of shit) there are two other books that might interest you. The first is very "aor" - Milan Kundura's "The Unbearable Lightness of Being." I thoroughly enjoyed it - especially the bits about shit, actually. And the other is Genet's "Our Lady Of The Flowers" - which still captivates me strangely and I think you'll appreciate it (though an acquired taste - like asparagus for some.)

I can't read before bed, most of the time.

Played forward in soccer, and the best part about it was running the field. I still love it, but I have a harder time building myself up to it now, because of old knee injuries, shin splints, etc. As far as the treadmill goes, I *definitely* burn more calories when I'm pissed off, lol.

Is it any wonder why women feel the need to show skin for attention? :D As for the songwriting...it's an interesting topic because I've kinda changed my view towards those who don't write their own songs. It's almost like movies and TV - Tom Cruise didn't write the MI3 script, yet they refer to it as 'his' movie. Jennifer Garner didn't write Alias, yet it's 'her' show. I kind of see musicians like that now. Some are songwriters, some are performers. Many performers have a team write the songs for them, then they perform them under their own name. Nothing wrong with that, as I see it. And it's not like the performers try to hide the fact that they didn't write their own songs, so who's it really hurting? When it comes down to it, even the musicians who DO write their own songs generally get help from a producer or what-have-you. Because while they do know how to write, most of them don't know how to make a song marketable. And I've lost my train of thought here, because I could've sworn we were talking about motherhood...

from lostincoma :
Polygamy's just one of those things that has a good side and pretty fucking dark side, and the media tends to always focus on the negative aspects of issues. But (as AC 360 shows), some people truly love and believe in the polygamist lifestyle, and if everyone's of age and a willing participant, they should be able to live that way. The reason people want to ban it has little to do with sex, though, IMO. It's kind of like the gay marriage issue - many have an idea in their head of how marriage should be structured, and they don't think that idea should be manipulated. They hate polygamy because of the ideoloy, not because of the supposed promiscuity. To which I have no problem with...although half said people are likely divorced and really shouldn't be preaching about 'the sacred institution of marriage'. And by the way, I think I said this before, but the 'no sex toys' laws (and laws like it) are generally not enforced all that much. So, law as it may be, it certainly doesn't ban us from much.

Hmm...that sounded like a contradiction - you said Nelly Furtado has true talent, then went on to comment solely on her looks. In any case, I guess who looks better is a matter of personal taste. But I have to say, Hollywood is really conveying this idea that moms should be able to pop 'em out and look great six weeks later. Meh. What's really so bad looking about Britney, lately? You're not the only one who bashes on her, so I'm curious. Yes, I want kids. I didn't used to, but I think that's just a petty phase everyone goes through when they're young. It's a responsibility I'd really like to have someday, and I think it's just as important a duty as any career would be. And god, don't get me started on the plagurism/Harvard issue. It pisses me off that people actually bash on these writers and feel like there's any sort of case against them. I say shame on consumers for being too ignorant to realize THIS GOES ON ALL THE TIME. It's normal, people need to get over it.

Your brother should only try to meet girls in bookstores if he likes to read and/or he likes girls who read. If he's looking for a no-strings-attached, flingish sort of thing, aboslutely go to the bars, but I would reccomend staying away from them if he's looking for something more serious. Man, everyone's so hard on Britney Spears...if there's one thing I have admired about her, it's her dedication to family and her desire to start one. Having children is really one of those universal contributions we can make to the world at large. I've kinda grown to feel that having kids is my calling in life, and if Britney feels the same way, good for her. Never mind parenting styles and who she chooses for a husband, never mind that she's a few pounds heavier, I just don't see why people can't admire the simple notion of her wanting a family over a music career right now. I think motherhood (parenthood in general) is one of the most self-sacrificing things you can do, and if that's not 'sexy', I don't know what is.
from summerroll :
That was quite possibly one of the greatest hours of television I have seen. It was incredible. I knew that Beaver, uh, I mean Cassidy, was the third boy molested. It was obvious from the way he freaked out whenever anyone talked about sex. I was shocked that he was the one that raped Veronica. Again, I believed that she had been, but I thought it was Dick. And poor Weevil, I almost shed a tear for him when that prick sheriff arrested him at graduation infront of his poor grandma. And the plane exploding and Logan rescuing Veronica, it was all too much to take, but in a good way. I taped it, so I plan on a second viewing tonight.

$8.33 on Dukes of Hazzard, eh? I guess we all have our moments of weakness. :D X-Men...yeah, wasn't the second one PG-13? I remember seeing it and wondering how they got out of an R rating with all the violence, because some of it even made me cringe. All in the name of allowing more people to pay to see it. College kids: THIS IS WHY YOU GET YOUR MENINGITIS SHOT. Jesus...anyway, I've never really seen people with lost limbs 'give up' on life, but I guess it is a thing to admire. Vaginal plastic surgery - it was really only a matter of time. After all, women (and men) alter every other god damn part of their bodies, why not the vagina? I'm past caring what those people do to themselves. If it's for a medical reason, fine, totally understandable. And some Muslim women do the hymen reconstruction for cultural/religious reasons. But if you really just want a quick fix to make you feel better about yourself, good riddance to ya. Why we don't get psychological help for some of these people, before going for the scalpel is beyond me, because so many of them have distorted body images and just need to stop focusing on it.

Collogen to make the g spot more prominent? That's kind sad. From what I have read the g spot becomes more prominent the more arosed a woman is. I suspect the orgams are much more powerful,...but wouldn't it be better to have a lover who could arose you enough to engorge the spot? I dunno, maybe I'm just spoiled with my super accessable spot.
from summerroll :
Regarding the hymenplasty, I didn't know about the rich woman thing. But I have heard about some Muslim women doing it, not because they were hoars but because they had been raped. And since it's such a big issue in their culture and religion when it comes time to get married, they risk shaming the family and I think even death (not enitrely sure about the death part, but I think I have some recollection of one of them saying that).It is a shame that some people just can't accept that their significant other may have had a past before they met. This is not the 50's anymore. And even back then, the men could do whatever and the women couldn't. Ah, double standards. Regarding Ultraviolet, you know my feelings on that movie. But I agree with you that the storyline was interesting and had tons of potential. For istance, when they learned that the suitcase kid had natural antibodies or whatever so that he could either cure/kill the vamps (I don't really remember right now), I immediately thought that he was Violet's kid. You know, since they kept making a big deal about how she contracted the disease while she was pregnant and she lost the baby, blah, blah. It kinda resembles the Blade backstory, but I think it made more sense than nose plug guy cloning himself to find a way to kill himself. I'm getting a headache just thinking about how bad that movie was.

Don't tell me you guys haven't said the 'L' word yet! Wow. I've never been quite in the know about dating and relationships, but that's somehow really shocking to me. Nick pretty much said it to me the day we officially got together. A little premature, but I guess it worked out okay. :D Ah, the definition of love. It's one of those things I've never tried to explain with words, which might sound weird coming from an aspiring writer. But I don't like to describe it because it's so ambiguous. Love is nothing and everything. To love is to let go, but to work hard. To live in the present, but want the future. Love is petty and indulgent, but it's selfless. Love is ignorance and irrationality and shameful, at times. Love is contentment, but love is a war. There's no way to tell for sure how love changes you, but I believe it's taught me a lot of things, namely that I alone choose my actions and reactions to everything around me. I used to be a cynical little emo kid who blamed everyone for my state of mind, whether it was my parents, teachers, politicians, reality TV, whatever. And I've obviously retained a lot of that sarcasm over the years. But I fully realize now that it's ME choosing my own cynicism. Maybe the state of society does suck right now, but it's my choice how I react to it. And I think love has taught me that even in the face of depressing adversity, I can still *choose* to be optimistic. Maybe finding hope through love allows one to have hope for all.

I have to ask first...what the hell is a sleep center? Second, is Star Jones really leaving The View? I was watching it just yesterday, and they didn't mention anything about that. Also, who said she doesn't like animals? That wasn't my impression, as she only mentions her dog every five minutes. And the breasts are no longer sagging, by the way. Plastic surgery fixed all that. Keep up with the facts, Mike. :D Tom Cruise - you know, I wonder how pissed of the rest of the cast is that he tries to run his scientology agenda at their movie premiere. He really should keep his private life separate from his work, out of respect to his coworkers. You know, I don't read many other diarys here, but I've also noticed this 'let's talk about blowjobs' trend with women. I have to wonder how fucking bored people are when they're bragging on the internet about how good they are at BJs. It's interesting how in the age of fast information, nothing is sacred or considered private in life, anymore. I don't know. Personally, I'd like to think I've made bigger achievements in life than giving good blowjobs. Yeesh.

Hey man. Just wanted to say hi; I haven't noted you in a while. Still feeling a little down. But, I did want to know what you thought about the last V.Mars episode. I called it, about 2 months ago, that Woody had molested one of the kids on the bus and they were going to expose him, you know, "the outing of all outings". I also believed that he was responsible for the crash, but now, after that court case (what a bunch of bs), I'm leaning toward Echolls; he's one slippery dick (hee, I made a marine science joke...I'm such a dork; stop laughing and look it up).
from lostincoma :
On the issue of being faithful...I would say that just because you *can* feasibly do something doesn't make that a good reason to do it. I've had friends in relationships for years who temporarily take a break to date and see what else is out there - almost like they want to make sure there's nothing better they're missing out on. And I think that's similar to your friends' concept of cheating. Why stay with one person all the time when you could be missing out on seventeen others? That screams of selfishness, to me. To do things that only please yourself without having the strength in character to let others go so they don't get hurt by your actions is weak and pathetic. And unattractive, at that. I think we live in a society based largely on greed, as well, and it's hard for some people to stop focusing on what they don't have and appreciate what they do have. And also, there's this tiny thing called personal taste - there seems to be this misconception that you can only have fun in life if you date around and remain uncommitted to anything serious. Some people do have more fun that way, but some don't. And if people like your friends realized that, they'd better understand why you don't cheat. Oh, and in reply to the note you left me...well, don't ask me, ask the narrator. :D

from lostincoma :
If I can say one substantial criticism about Bush (because let's face it, most of our criticisms are just cheap-shot surface-bashings on his college records or his inability as a public speaker - flaws that I think many of us possess, which makes him a pretty good reflection of the American people anyway), it's that he's made a consistent habit of being all talk and little to no action. Five years after 9/11 and bin Laden's somehow still on the loose. SUVs still have shitty gas mileage. There's no plan to rebuild Iraq as a democratic country. We put kids through high school who can't read or solve a quadratic equation. Cheney still hasn't shot a quail. And so on. I may not agree with all of his policies, but I'd admire him at least a little more if he followed through on one of them. Foreigners...you really have to put yourself in their shoes, sometimes. Imagine living in a country with no job opportunities, no decent education, no hope for success or happiness in general. Whether the American dream is a farce or not, it's obvious why people want to immigrate here, and like I said, I believe they should adapt to our general way of life. But to make them give up certain parts of their own culture is, to me, asking a bit much. Yes, if you come from a cannabalistic culture, you should not be allowed to do that when living in America. But telling a woman she can't wear a burrkha in her driver's license picture? You're taking away something that's an element of comfort, or familiarity, to her, and I don't see why it bothers us enough to disallow her from wearing it. Who's it hurting, really? I don't know, maybe me perception is biased or fucked up or whatever. Both my parents were immigrants, 25 years ago, and they more or less went the opposite way, completely Westernizing their lifestyles and abandoning their own cultures. I see more recent Indian immigrants out in public, wearing their saris, and they look at my family as though we've betrayed our ancestry. And I get it. My mom's side of the family doesn't know half of what's going on in my personal life right now because if they did, they would surely consider me a slut and ostracize my mother for raising me so non-traditionally. And I *get* it. I'm okay with it. Which I think is the big issue here - live and let live. I know I don't have to believe the same things others do, but I respect whatever they do believe, whether it's arranged marriages or assisted suicide. Everyone has a rich culture with a lot of history and passion behind it, and if we can get outside our own fucking bubble where freedom and democracy and a love of football rule all and respect the weight of other cultures, maybe we'd get some respect from them in return.

Ha. I've got a move named after me. Part of me feels I should be honored, but the other part feels rather pathetic that the move I'm named after is something as asinine as falling off a treadmill. Didn't quite understand the last paragraph of your entry there. I do agree that America is great for respecting diversity...yet you then go on to bash on Muslims' body odor and rappers' dialects? Isn't that in itself a disrespect to diversity? Not that I'm saying we have to *like* all types of diversity. Americans hate the way Muslims smell and there are Muslims who think most American deodorant is ridiculously obscene-smelling, and part of being an American is the right to think that, so long as we don't ask them to change their ways. I do think immigrants should learn English, even though I don't believe it's *officially* the national language of this country. But yet another great thing about living here is embracing our way of life while still having the freedom to maintain one's own. So, referring to pertinent, timely issues, if Hispanic people want to sing our national anthem in Spanish, who are we to stop them? Why are we so offended by people who wish to express their love for America in their native tongue? I mean, I suppose there is a requirement that they learn it in English as well, but it seems pretty silly to demand something of foreigners that half of American citizens probably couldn't do themselves.

Ok, FIRST of all, it's ANDERSON COOPER. Arthur Andersen is, I believe, an accounting firm involved in the Enron scandal, no? Second, at least the Backstreet Boys don't have to show major ribcage and three pounds of eyeliner on a Vanity Fair cover to look good. Sure, give me a Marky Mark Calvin Klein ad and I'll drool all day. But what it comes down to for me in the aesthetic department is an entertainer who can overstep the hair products, air-brushing, jewelry, and brand name what-have-you, and still look naturally amazing. I think some of the most flattering pictures of celebrities are the more candid shots of them, when they're outside the photo studio and doing something mundanely unworthy of photographing, like grocery shopping. I think I probably wouldn't approach a celebrity on the street either, actually. I've learned, in my random meetings with musicians (yelling at Orgy to give me my shirt back - long story - and going for Chester Bennington's ass, only to get a disappointing hand instead) that it's a lot more fulfilling to admire from afar. The encounters really ruin it for me because you're getting a once-in-a-lifetime event boiled down to a passing 'hello', and I'd really rather remain the sideline support. Are mumps and autism really a direct product of one's environment? I remember when I was diagnosed with asthma (age three or so), it was a pretty rare illness, but now it's like every other person on the street has it. Though asthma is also something I believe you're born with, so it's hard to tell exactly how the environment factors in. Now Mike, if MTV didn't allow Sweet Sixteen to air, it wouldn't be there for you to watch it. Stupid television, although irritating, would leave us with nothing to bitch about, were it to not exist. :D And yes, I think the better question would be when am I NOT horny.

God, I came across a rerun of Dawson's Creek the other day and couldn't watch it. It was too painful to see Katie in her good old days, lol. It's interesting how people have reacted to this seemingly different-from-before Tom Cruise, because it's almost, by gender standards, how people would react to a woman exhibiting similar behavior. Generally, when a woman is outspoken about her feelings and beliefs, she is ridiculed and seen as less attractive, while guys who do the same thing are seen as powerful and smart. Cruise, however, is getting the more female side of the reaction, it seems - he's suddenly becoming less attractive and more annoying in his couch-jumping days, and no one really cares to see his movies anymore. It makes sense with him because I think part of his appeal before was that he just stood there and looked cute and didn't open his mouth towards one thing or the other. But I'm still really fascinated by this reaction that isn't typical against males. Will this South Carolina law banning sex toys actually be enforced. Because there are a lot of state laws that aren't enforced, and this one seems like it would be hard to monitor, especially given the ease with which you can order sex toys online these days. Wheeee...get better fast and have fun with Sara. :)

Two thing... craigslist.org in SF/Bay Area, "rant and rave" section, goes on and on and on and on about fat girls, chubby chases, BBW, etc., etc, etc. If you want indulgence in chatter about big women, you'll get an earful and eyeful there.. oy. Secondly, I think rape should be punishable by life in prison and chemical castration or life in prison as the bitch of some guy named Bruno - but/and I do think that women need to start considering some of the stuff Camile Paglia has talked and written about with regard to rape - that being "no means no" isn't "enough" - we're big girls and if we go to an intimate place (a bedroom, etc.) with a man there is some complicity. Obviously this has nothing to do with your friend who was the victim of incest re: her father. I do feel that there is this misguided anti-feminist dogma around sex and rape. It's like the madonna-whore complex taken to an extreme. I think the "real" feminist perspective is that women are smart and capable and I know if I go to a man's apartment scantily clad, get drunk and lay on his bed, that we're going to have sex and fuck that "no means no" crap, because my actions are saying yes and every woman knows that - none of us are stupid. (And of course I'm not saying rape doesn't happen - it happens, is traumatic and wrong, evil and vile, etc. But I think if we took some of the modern renditions of rape out of the equation, the numbers would fall re: that statistic.)

I'm lacking sleep, and so yes, you get all my unfortunate commentary. :D I know what you meant about the hair issues, I was just saying that it doesn't seem like such a tantalizing, taboo subject to read about. I'm not sure how to explain it...I don't think people should be admired just for sharing intimate details others may not divulge. I tend to go for enigmatic celebrities, for some reason, and while I do occassionally desire more insight into their personal lives, I don't necessarily need for them to share more than the 'normal' amount of personal info. It's more about the quality of your exposure, not the quantity, and it's almost a turn-off to me when people (like those porn stars) put themselves out there so much just to get a magazine spread or a second glance. I would rather put my best foot forward than just lay it all on the table. I can totally understand celebrities 'holding back' on how much they share, because the media and the public are ruthless with every detail of their lives. Most everyone desires some private aspect of life, and I don't really consider it a great loss if we never know how stars style their pubic hair. 2 out of 10 men? I would expect it to be higher than that, especially if the survey questioned only chasers in general and not men who weigh looks less heavily. In any case, that stereotype about black males has been around for a long time, and I've noticed it's finally spreading to other races as well. Praise da lawd. :D

I don't see your reasoning there. Gas is NOT a necessity; transportation is. And (depending on where you live, obviously), there are far cheaper means of transportation than personal vehicles. Yes, there are some people who live out in the middle of nowhere and most likely have no choice but to use cars to get around. But even in my hometown, where cars are such an obsession, a person could get by on foot, so I don't doubt it's possible in most places. If China is bad for being wasteful, doesn't that make us TWICE as bad for being MORE wasteful? Why should other countries have to give up anything just to appease the over-consumption of Americans (who, by the way, aren't willing to do the same)? Don't get me wrong, I'm one of those very people who's somewhat attached to her car, but that doesn't mean I ignore the obvious ways I can travel more economically and save money. Good luck to Lachey with that new album, 'cause he's gonna need it. I really wish he'd stuck with 98 Degrees because they had some pretty good pop songs and harmonized really well together. And by the way, explain to me how reading about him is death by boredom and reading about porn stars' 'hair care' isn't. I don't find myself admiring them for their openness, as it's something that's more or less required in their industry, anyway. The more you're willing to bare, the more money, popularity, attention, etc., you get. Or so it seems. *ding* Round Three!

I haven't seen the movie, so I'm not even gonna touch the Dukes of Hazzard comment, you Vogue whore, you. Gas prices - well, a couple of things are funny about that. Firstly, it's funny we complain about $3.19 per gallon, when some countries pay twice as much. Gas in the U.S. isn't insanely cheap, but it isn't insanely expensive, either, especially for a developed, superpower country such as ours. Secondly, it's funny how we blame places like China for having more cars on the road, yet families in America often have one car PER PERSON. And thirdly, of course, is the fact that we complain about it 'till the cows come home, yet we still buy the SUVs, still don't car-pool to work, and still don't use bikes or public transportation when they're available. Let's just face it: Americans love their cars. It's like those girls who sued McDonald's because their food made them fat - DON'T BUY THE FOOD. Similarly, don't buy the gas.

I think I'd have to (once again) agree with Sara about you taking Diaryland too seriously. It's weird, actually...because I've never tracked who reads what I write and therefore wouldn't have the first clue if I was worthy of someone's analysis twelve times over. And somehow, it doesn't bother me. Sure, if someone wanted to go to all the trouble of actually hunting me down in person, they probably could based on what's in my journal. But seriously, that'd be a lot of work, and it's not like I'm the freaking Pope. In this Internet world we inhabit, communication has changed so drastically, that you can no longer make inferences about what others think. Maybe this 'stalker' had trouble loading your page and clicked on it twelve times! You simply don't know, and I think what Sara's getting at is that you don't necessarily need to jump to conclusions about their intentions. I know it's fun to meet people online and stuff, but is it integral to meet EVERYone who reads you? That sounds less like friendliness and more like paranoia, to me (this is the point I realize I'm rambling and decide not to give a damn :D). Don't get me wrong, I'm the textbook definition of paranoia, but when it came to starting an online journal, I realized I'd have to let some of my guard down. Maybe you should keep a pen-and-paper journal...I do that as well, and it serves its theraputic purpose without the public display. Gas prices - I'm definitely with you on the financial strain, considering the 21-hour trip I'm taking tomorrow. At least I'm going back to a cheap-gas state for a month. I think there's some truth to the idea that people date the same person over and over. I can't speak from experience, as I've only had (and hopefully will have) one 'real' boyfriend, but I've seen it happen with numerous friends. I was also thinking how it's interesting that I used to want (or *think* I wanted) a guy who had the same interests as me, because Nick, in some ways, couldn't have LESS in common with me. I think on that level, that while it's important to communicate well with each other, there are advantages to liking different things on a more surface level.

I owned pants that were striped, olive green and white. That were so frill'n cool. I loved those pants. I still had them and they still fit up until I quit smoking two years ago.

That's seemingly how it's always been with TV shows. Stuff like Freaks and Geeks and Family Guy were pulled off the air because they either didn't have enough viewers or they were too offensive. In the latter case, its cult following was, luckily, enough to bring it back, but that usually isn't the case. I don't know. I think TV itself has this reputation of providing entertainment that creates lazy drones, so it could take a while before 'smart' or 'unique' television succeeds. The West Wing is paving the way. What the hell IS up with Sam Jackson? He used to be so cool in a 'Bruce Willis' kind of way, but he seems to be doing more hits and misses than ever now. Old clothes...my mom usually gives them to the Salvation Army. Funny story: she went to do it earlier this year, and they rejected half of my old clothes because they were too 'out of style'. :D

The high-definition is better, obviously, it's just never something I've gotten more satisfaction from than from the 'old' style of movie-watching. Put it this way, before high-def., I never sat around in front of my TV and complained the picture wasn't good enough. And the weight thing - I should probably be clear in saying that 88 pounds isn't something I'm bragging about, nor is simply 'being tiny' an excuse to be that thin, at my age. My weight wasn't a focus at that time, my work was, and that's what caused me to neglect my health that much. I was eating one small meal a day and worrying the shit out of my parents and friends (they thought I had an eating disorder), and while I brushed it off at the time, I realize now that it was more serious than I acknowledged.
from lostincoma :
I have to say I'm glad I'm not in high school today. We had our fair share of drugs, violence, and suicides, yet it still seems so much worse these days. I can't say I would mind extra security. I know it annoys lots of people to have to go through extra searches at airports and whatnot, but I don't see it as a problem if I have nothing to hide. My high school never had metal detectors, but they brought the drug dogs in every now and then, and they would hype up security whenever a bomb threat was made. And it didn't bother me at all. Of course, certain racial groups are slightly more adverse to police officers, arguably for good reason. Regarding technology, I feel the same way about it. I'm only just now adjusting to DVDs, and I unsuccessfully tried to convince my parents they don't need a flat-screen TV. My theory is definitely that you don't replace something if it works fine.
from summerroll :
I'm always one of the first to say that race is not a major factor in many things. However, if I were a black parent in your area, I would be concerned about armed guards too. It's been well documented that cops become extremely trigger happy when there are minorities around. Some guy goes to pull a wallet out of his back pocket, but because he's black, they assume he's pulling a gun. Would it have been different if he was white. Maybe, maybe not. But I think they would have waited to see the gun first. Anyway, I would still be worried about armed guards in the schools because even if some kid would pull a gun, the guards might hit innocent bystanders. I think it's a bad situation/idea either way.
from summerroll :
I hust threw up a little bit in my mouth. Maybe I should snort that now. Perfect example of why I don't watch pornos; their gross and a lot of times unrealistic.
from lostincoma :
lol. Ok, I never said *all* free porn was good porn (especially if you stumble upon it in someplace as random as a gym locker room). You definitely have to wade through a lot of shit (no pun intended) to find something decent. I've seen a 'snorting' clip and while it's probably not the grossest thing I've seen in porn, it's definitely up there on the 'turn-off' meter. But I think this is a sort of natural evolution that occurs with the increasing sexualization of our culture. As people become more open about their sexuality and it becomes more acceptable to publicly flaunt it, we get easily bored and strive for more creativity. We're no longer satisfied with *just* missionary or *just* handcuffs or *just* one partner, so things reach to higher extremes. I, personally, don't care for most of it, but when people are no longer judged as harshly for their own tastes, they're less shy about expressing certain odd fetishes, and I'm sure there's someone out there that finds snorting to be a turn-on. 'Poofter' is slang for a homosexual male, by the way. Originally Aussie slang and adopted later by the rest of the world, I believe.

from lostincoma :
I take it you're implying you won't be cohabitating anytime soon? :D I think the theory about gaining weight has more to do with the level of committment in a relationship, and since cohabitating indicates a more serious bond, the two are seen as indirectly related. It's that whole cliche about how married couples 'let themselves go' because they no longer fear the other person bailing on the relationship as much. In other words, you've both gotten over that need to impress the other because you've seen the best and worst of each other. As for me personally, my weight gain tends to depend on my general level of activeness. When I'm not working or going to school, etc., like right now, I gain weight more easily, compared to freshman year when I was so overworked that I dropped down to 88 pounds. Eh...at least it's more or less under my control.

I don't usually see a lot of 'religious freaks' around, even in my Bible Belt state. People tend to keep to themselves and do their regular traditions, which definitely doesn't include the obsession over Christ's rebirth. These holidays are so commercialized that even non-religious people like me celebrated them, which I think is weird now that I look back on it. Silent birth - you know, I try not to comment on celebrities' lives because we can't just believe what the media tells us, but I think the best thing for Katie to do as soon as possible would be to speak up, if not about her relationship with Cruise, then about SOMEthing. While she may not be as passive and brainwashed into this whole thing as we think, it certainly comes across that way when we see Tom talking and her following. Then again, some women prefer to take the backseat, and if that's what she truly wants...
from lostincoma :
I'm pretty much the same way with guys - while my intent is not to hook up with them, I flirt pretty shamelessly. But hey, if she's going to get upset for being turned down by a guy, that's her own problem. You have a logical reason, and if she can't accept that, she's got her own insecurity issues. I don't understand why you feel bad about someone else's reaction you have no control over, but seriously, it's ok to not care, Mike. She'll move on to another guy, or she'll sit and mope about a passing encounter. Her choice. It's not like people will think you're the bad guy if you guiltlessly turn down a girl. I can understand Sara's reaction, obviously. Nick tends to get the same way, and I think it's not so much a jealously issue as a trust issue. He doesn't trust what I might do if a nice guy hits on me. There's really nothing you can do about it, except conduct yourself how you would if Sara were standing right there watching. I know you're friendly, but you don't have to linger so long on every cute girl you meet. I'm learning to have less flirtatious conversations with guys, and it seems to keep the encounters shorter. As for this self-esteem thing, you need to stop asking "Why does so-and-so love me so much?" and instead ask "Why do I hate myself so much?". I think a lot of us look for validation from other people, when we really have to find it within ourselves in order to be content with life. And it takes a long time. I've gained a ton of confidence these past few years, and I still don't feel like I've realized my full potential. But it's an interesting journey to take. And onmygawd, I can't believe you actually *took* the free porn, lmao.

Well, I'm not out to judge myspace, as it'd be hypocritical when I have an online journal of my own. I was more so surprised it's taken so long for the media to pick up on the fact that kids are doing things they shouldn't do and have been for several years. Hell, even on facebook, there are tons of girls that post half-naked pictures of themselves, and I think it's even sadder in their instances since they're in college. By the way, you should've watched Oprah today, as their discussion on the 'stupid girl' culture was pretty pertinent to the whole Playboy thing (Pink was on the show - if you've seen her new video, you'll know why). I didn't think I'd learn anything new from it, but they did this segment about books with sexual content that are marketed to teens, which I'd never heard about. Books, for crying out loud! Is no medium free from these imitations of sex?!

from lostincoma :
Harsh? lol. Isn't that supposedly what Hefner was, as well? I agree he's certainly interesting, from what I've read and seen. And, like I said, I don't deny that he's a smart business man - he knows what sells, so he puts it out there. I just question the 'classiness' of Playboy products and entertainment. It's like that Friends episode where Joey explained how you can make any word have a sexual conotation by saying it a certain way. Similarly, you can take a picture that's degrading and tasteless and turn it into 'art', by using better lighting, having the girls close their legs, using better quality paper, etc. But at the end of the day, it's still a woman posing naked for money, for a predominantly male audience. Hmm...and don't prostitutes sell their bodies too? Put it this way, if Hef lived in a small New York apartment, never hosted massive parties, never appeared on camera in that trademark robe of his, and never talked about his polygamous lifestyle, would he be such a spectacle? The 'classy' aspect of Playboy comes from these images he throws out there, not from his work actually being respectable. If he got all this attention for the credibility of his work, then Bill Gates would have just as much news coverage. This is what the media does - magazines, TV, movies, all of them put a spin on reality. Pam Anderson might think that women exploit Playboy and not the other way around, but that's because the media's painted the whole empire that way. I just think that if we've spent decades as a society trying to stop the treatment of women as sexual objects and stop men from treating women as sexual objects, Playboy stands as a giant step backwards from progress, no matter how elite and sophisticated those involved are. And if I'm sounding like a man-hater here, it's not intended, because it's my opinion that both women who pose AND men who buy it are selling themselves short.
from lostincoma :
Hef - I think I get it. Protecting your women, living a classy (read: rich) lifestyle, and only taking 'tasteful' nude pictures of them, totally excuses exploiting them. Hugh's a pimp and the girls are his hos - if you take away the mansion, the money, the articles, etc., it's really as simple as that. Hugh just happened to be more successful than most pimps out there. Don't get me wrong, I think he's smart, the way bin Laden's smart, conning women into thinking they're doing something respectable and tasteful. But that image is just an illusion he creates with what I mentioned above. Seriously, articles? First of all, not all guys even touch the articles and the ones who do probably do so to feel less stupid about paying for a magazine with naked women in it. I don't read the articles, because if I wanted something informative, I'd sooner pick up Newsweek. And if you ban gyno shots to be more tasteful, why not just have them wear clothes in the first place? Oh, yeah, because then Playboy wouldn't have made as much money. I'm all for freedom of speech and expression and what-have-you, but I always question people's motives and meanings when they defy it. Hef was and is all business, and he did what he did for the money.

Aren't A&F and AE practically the same thing? I can't say, as I've never been inside either store, but a mere window view suggests they're pretty similar and equally overpriced. That's our problem in this country, though. We complain about Old Navy employing sweatshops so they can sell cheap clothes, but we complain equally as much when clothes are too expensive. Maybe there's a happy medium no one's reaching. A&F is like Tommy Hilfiger, the sequel - unfortunately, there are people like them in authoritative positions who still think 'white' when creating the all-American image. I don't doubt there are Americans who think the same way too, though, so I guess they're only catering to their market. In any case, I've never liked brand names like that, that practically tell you who you are through irrelevant advertising. Clothes are clothes, you wear them so you won't get arrested in public, not to tell people who you are. You know, I've become conscious about how much time I keep your diary open on my screen now, since you're all 'Homeland Security' about tracking your readers. I tend to accidentally leave the window open while doing other things, but I'll be more careful in the future. :D And personally, I've never had this so-called issue with guys talking too little about sex.

from lostincoma :
I wasn't implying, per say, that loving movies or comic books or whatever makes you a kid at heart. I think all of us grow up to have obligations and responsibilities we don't like, which often makes us want to escape to more childlike, worry-free times, and I guess what I was getting at is that we (or maybe just I) don't necessarily know *what* you escape from. For me, it's mostly either work, school, or my parents, and I've noticed that since I don't have any of those things right now, I don't feel the need to escape from anything. And I, for whatever reason, see you in a similar way - you seem to more or less enjoy every day, and there don't seem to be many daily things you dislike or clash with enough to feel that urge to escape. If that makes sense. I only half understand it, myself. And I wasn't trying to make you dwell on it or anything. It was just a random thought that I had, how we all know what you escape to, just not what you escape from.

Oh, and The Bell Jar. Well, it's not a John Grisham novel, if that's what you're looking for. :D I think there's irony in the fact that Kaysen's account was more autobiographical and Plath's more fictional, because the latter's work comes out as the more realistic one in the end. Plath wrote a very accessible story about the reality girls face growing up (and having mental breakdowns) - Girl, Interrupted tried to do the same thing, but used so much shock value and the overdone "crazy is really sane" message, that it came up far short of being as good as The Bell Jar. So I guess it depends on one's taste. Not to say I don't like overdone characters and whatnot...it just seems that The Bell Jar triumphs over Girl, Interrupted because of its accessability and for not trying so hard to entertain.
from lostincoma :
Here's the thing. I *like* the idea of not having sex before marriage. I think it's a rather cute idea and it seems like a nice and respectable thing to give the person you marry, and hey, I do wonder just how much we could cut down STD rates if more people waited. But, in our culture, the reality is that that doesn't happen much anymore. People are getting married at later ages, for one thing, and, more importantly, the messages we're exposed to teach us to treat sex more casually than it should perhaps be treated. And I know that's a cliched thing to say and that some might disagree, but I do think the media plays an integral role in teaching kids about sex. I grew up mostly watching family shows like Full House, shows that tackled sex (if at all) in a very conservative way. I didn't watch things like MTV or read magazines like Cosmo until I was much older, and as a result, I never thought about sex objectively until I was 15, and even then, I didn't graduate to more specific thoughts of my own sex life until I was in an actual relationship at 17. And, in hindsight, I don't think that's such a bad idea. I grew up, more or less, without being constantly bombarded by sex, and I think it's given me a healthy view on it. I see it as a pleasurable activity, but I don't put it on this pedestal. I don't talk/think about it constantly, and it's no more important to me than any of the other pleasures in life. It's simply one of the many things I enjoy, like books and potato chips and Gilmore Girls. Sure, I didn't wait until marriage - I don't think I would ever feel comfortable marrying someone I haven't been that intimate with - but I did view it as something important that I should do when I'm ready and not just when the guy wants it, blahblahblah. Are these TV shows and movies and whatever going to go away? No, I think things will only get more sexualized with time. So, to me, it's really a matter of parental control. I think we live in a society where kids look up to Mischa Barton more than their mother, and if more parents would step up and become the predominant role model (by teaching them how to live a life of quality and self-value, etc.), kids might start listening to them more than the TV. As for the schools, I don't understand why we're debating whether to teach them about sex or abstinence, when it's obviously integral to do both. In any school, you'll have kids who want to wait until marriage and kids who don't, and I think it's important not to isolate either of those groups. By the way, the novel, Rainbow Party, was banned in a bunch of bookstores - some parents apparently don't think it's appropriate for kids to read about stuff they're already doing, lol. Shame...if they actaully bothered to READ the book, they'd discover it discussed the danger of rainbow parties, instead of advocating them.

Most new HIV infections happen among youths, even though often they are not diagnosed until later. I think it's difficult for kids who don't really have language to communicate with each other about sex (they can hardly believe they're having it, much less negotiating safer sex.) It's not that young people can't talk about sex - they certainly do - but that's really different than being in the moment and being able to negotiate their way around safer sex, birth control, etc. There isn't a culture around most kids that supports an open dialog. I think, for this reason, that it's good that many kids are freaked out enough to think they're going to 'save themself' for marriage - and those that don't - I hope we don't blame or condemn them for the consequences - I think you remember the 1970's public health campaign, "herpes is forever" (I remember an earlier post of yours on the subject pondering STD education.) The reason we don't see those campaigns is because in the context of HIV and Hep C, who cares about herpes, really? There are more important health issues. As stupid as it may seem, a message of abstinence for young people may be a critical public health strategy - and I'm not one of those whacky religious fundamentalists. As long as sex education has its hands tied on the average high school campus... well.... I digress... it's just what bubbled to the surface...
from lostincoma :
Oh god, believe it or not, I knew a guy in college that was obsessed with cheesy stuff like that, and he talked about the Karate Kid thing all the time. He was a very...odd bird. See, Girl, Interrupted is one of the few stories that I actually liked better as a movie than as a book. It could just be because the movie was a little more glitzy and dramatic, but I couldn't enjoy the book because of (and this will sound somewhat hypocritical of me, given my stance on the James Frey thing) the notion of Susanna as an unreliable narrator. It's odd because I usually don't have a problem with unreliable narrators, but this one apparently bothered me. Anyway, hope you enjoy The Bell Jar...I'm surprised you haven't read it, since most people I know who have been through high school and/or college have had to at some point. Oh, and I can't understand why anyone would voluntarily read Beowulf, but to each his own. It was rather like torture, for me. :D

Minister's wife: Wasn't there something about her possibly having a mental condition? I remember the news saying that earlier on, but there hasn't been mention of it again. They're also talking about postpartum depression, but I'm more skeptical about that, as she would have gone after the kids instead, in that case. Sharon Stone, dear god, where to start with her. Put her in a room with women, and she'll talk sex with them. Put her in a room with a man and she'll flirt incessantly with him. She doesn't know how to be anything other than a sexual personality, it seems, and it gets annoying after a while. You talk about sex too much, and soon people aren't going to care about seeing or hearing you. Kids shouldn't have more oral sex, or any sex for that matter. I think it's kind of sad that that innocent, childish phase in life is so much shorter than before. Jill Carrol interests me more than other POVs because she's more than just a journalist. Here is a person who devoted her life and career to actually getting to know the Iraqi people, and when most American news sticks to interviewing American soldiers, I admire someone like her, who doesn't paint Iraqis like they're the enemy.

Wait a second. Back this up! There's a Horror Channel!?!? Where the hell have I been? Man, if I had that channel, between that and Sci-Fi, I would NEVER watch anything else or leave my house.

I have to say, while part of me has always wanted bigger boobs, I'm glad I don't have to deal with men staring at them all the time. Big boobs seem more like a pain in the ass than anything else (as most girls on my former soccer team would attest to), and they just make you look heavier anyway. How shallow am I to suffer through American news, just because Anderson delivers it?! I did see that shock therapy story...pretty funny to watch the reporter try it out.
from summerroll :
Midgets make you dizzy?!?! That's one of the funniest things I've read in a while. And was it a midget you saw or a dwarf, because they are different (although I can never remember which is which). I really did feel like I lost 1.5 hours of my life watching UV (even though, I probalby would have sat through 2 hours of it on a Sunday afternoon if they showed it on TV). What was most amazing though was that half of the theater walked out (and it was packed since it was opening night). That was the first time I had ever seen that, and I've been to some bad movies before. Anway, what I really wanted to comment on was the color scheme you mentioned in the movie. I think everything was bland and white because they wanted to portray the sterile environment of the city and culture, especially since they are afraid to be "different". It was cool that Violet could change colors and what not, but that too was never really explained, especially since none of the other vampires could do it. So it didn't make sense, like a lot of other things in the movie.
from lostincoma :
Eh, job hunting. It's increasingly disheartening to find that a college degree won't get you much of anything these days, as most jobs require an additional 1-3 years of experience, as well. Well...that's not to say I couldn't easily get a job, because I could if I were currently looking hard enough. I haven't been unemployed since I was 17, and it's admittedly pretty easy to get used to it. :D
from summerroll :
What fighting??? She would turn around in a circle and pose and then everyone would be dead! The only good fight scene was the one at the end with the nose-plug dude, and even that one ended weirdly. I loved Wolf Creek. A lot of people thought it was boring at the beginning, but I appreciated the time they took for character development before all the craziness started. Good luck with all the licking.
from lostincoma :
I'm not talking about whether movie nude scenes are realistic or not, just that most of the time, they seem unnecessary to serving the purpose of the movie. Artists seem to have gotten so used to using nudity to convey such a mirage of things (love, intimacy, audacity, sin, etc.) that movies have started to use it more prevalently, if only to raise hype and jazz up what people are seeing on the screen. Moviemakers *know* these days that a nude scene will get people talking, probably not realizing that a nude scene overtakes all the praise and talk about the rest of the film. I dunno, maybe I just haven't seen enough movies, but of the ones I have seen, it's hard to remember one where the nude scene(s) were actually relevant to the story/characters/etc.

You know I'm all about the martial arts-vampire movies. But I think you'll be hugely disappointed with UV. Plus, Mila doesn't even look that hot in it. But good luck with that. And let me know what you think.
from lostincoma :
Oh fine, I'll comment on it. I'm a bit confused at Jessica Alba's statement, myself, for a few reasons. Firstly, her use of the word 'slutty' to describe said bad-girl movie roles. And secondly, her decision to pull a career 180. It's interesting timing, really, considering she just fought to get her illegally-published picture off Playboy's cover, but you have to wonder - is she just THAT dumb that she's only just now realizing that the public perceives her as a sexual object more than an actress? Why the change of heart? She seemingly had no problem wearing bikinis (which, by the way, can also be classified as nudity, in my book) and playing strippers before. Don't get me wrong, I'm *somewhat* on her side - I can't recall a nude scene that ever seemed necessary to a movie, and most of them seem placed in them to jazz the hype up. But I think she's realizing that to be taken seriously as an actress, she might want to keep her clothes (ALL of them) on first...and possibly take some acting classes.

I dunno Mike, 1,800 DVDs, however you justify owning them, sounds pretty damn consumerist to me. :) I could go on all day about the level of craziness consumption has reached in America, but don't feel I should until I myself can stop buying all the jeans, DVDs, books and pre-packaged foods that I buy. It's all relative, really. You could look at celebrities and say that they're WAY out of hand with all the stuff they buy, but a homeless man could look at either of us and say the same thing. Unless you live in some bubble in Bumfuck, Idaho, aren't we all pretty consumer-savvy?

I've actually been pretty fed up with all the news coverage of the whole 'Vendetta/Bush administration' comparison. Firstly, because people tend to go overboard when it comes to seeing connections to their current situation in basically every piece of art they come across (they even went through this same debate when the latest Star Wars movie came out...not to unrelatedly mention all those stupid punk songs that make people say "Ohmygod, Benji and Joel are TOTALLY singing the story of my life!). And secondly, because, from what little I know about it, this movie covers themes that are practically timeless and can be applied to several political situations. And why shouldn't it be that way? Most movies do like to cover realistic ideas. So, I dunno. Is it an attack on the Bush administration? Probably not, and the media needs to back down on that. But if we're talking about it being a sort of mold for realistic political situations, I'm willing to bet it is. As for our little culture of fear...I could go on for pages about it, but in short, I do think we have an unhealthy habit of a need to *create* fear in each other. You wanna talk about what's tearing society apart, to hell with Bush, I think it's this artificial fear we keep buying into that's destroying our reserve, as well as our strength and intelligence. The thing I really fear (pun intended) more than anything is when we've so lowered ourselves to that level of paranoia because we're allowing verbal trash pollute our minds. Ok, stopping now. I'm glad you're feeling better. :)

I would have to echo the 'mommy' advice below. As shitty as it sounds, you really should just give in and rest. It might even help you get better faster than what you're doing now. I think your body just needs time to recharge, and getting up and doing stuff is slowing down its recovery. Soooo, go SLEEP! I mean it, I don't wanna see another update from you today!
from summerroll :
Dude, you need to rest. The reason you feel tired or you keep falling asleep is because your body trying to nudge you to bed (and not for the reasons you usually get nudged to Sara's bed :D). I bet if you give yourself a good 4-5 hours of rest, you will amazingly start to feel better. That means no cleaning, no push-ups/sit-ups, no sex (shocking I know). Just give in to your immune system and let it do all the work of making you feel better. Sorry to sound like a mommy, but I hate hearing about you feeling bad and want you to get better so that you can enjoy your Sara time. Hugs!

I don't like Keira's face because she wears enough eye makeup for every woman who attended. How can you tell she's good looking with all that eyeliner on?! And I don't dislike her British accent (half my extended family is British, so that would be a pretty big betrayal), I dislike her fake American accent in movies. She needs to spend the rest of her life playing British characters because any other accent is a lost cause for her. And yes, I am also glad she didn't win, but for obviously different reasons. :P

I can't say I've had a 'real' professional job before, but I think that with any job, you will encounter a certain amount of incompetence, cold-heartedness, soul-selling, etc. There will always be that woman that smells, the guy that doesn't speak good English, the boss that doesn't care if it's your birthday, etc., and you'll often feel like the only sane one there. But unless you're just filthy-stinking rich, getting a job and, as Bald-O puts it, contributing to society, is something we all have to face at some point. It sucks, even the great jobs suck. Trust me, I KNOW what you mean about stifling creativity. Part of the whole reason I'm really trying to make my dream of being a writer happen is so maybe I don't have to sit in a cubicle from 9-5 for the rest of my life. If you feel the same way, by all means, go for what you want in life, because I'm sure you can make it happen. If not, stick with the job hunt. Spread yourself wide over the market, because there's got to be something out there that's better than your old job (hint: you've got a degree, right? USE IT!). Even if it's just a call center or something (and I can't believe I'm saying this), that's at least something more colorful. Like I said, every job has it's shitty parts, but you sometimes just have to go with it. Have fun gettin' wasted. :D

from lostincoma :
I'm assuming you've unlocked it, as I didn't need my (forgotten) password to get in. But still...Miiiiiike! You *have* to stop letting the 'morons' get to you! Besides the subjectivity of what even constitutes a moron in the first place, and besides the fact that we all have our own moronic moments, it's more likely that you're giving them what they want when you lock your diary. Don't lock it and maybe they keep reading, but that would at least say to them that you're unresponsive to their actions. Lock it and the only message they must take from it is that you care what they think and do. You've always been so open about not caring what others think, so unless it's a matter of keeping them from reading about your personal life, why even bother to change how you do things just because of someone you don't like? Regarding the job...I speak from abundant (and I mean *abundant*) experience when I say getting turned down for the job sucks. It does, really. But try not to look at it as a personal diss to your abilities or your intelligence. Most likely, it isn't. You win some and lose some in the job market, and if there's one thing I have learned, it's more about luck (right time, right place, knowing the right people, etc.) than anything else, anyway. Every job I've had, even the less official babysitting jobs, I've gotten not for my knowledge, but through knowing somebody on the 'inside'. So hang in there. The first one or even the first ten don't always yield positive results. Again, from my experience, it NEVER does, lol.

Hey the one year anniversary IS a big thing, and you should be happy. :-) As for porn, I haven't actually watched that much, I prefer an erotic film with a plot. About the vibrator and cat thing, If i did that my cat would attack the vibrator..."DIE! DIE! FOUL BUZZING THING!", so I'd probably end up with scratches where I'd REALLY rather not have them! :-p
from lostincoma :
What kind of porn do I like? FREE porn. And I happen to hate plot. If I wanted plot so bad, I figure I'd watch a regular movie. I guess it depends on how you use porn. Alice in Wonderland - this is somewhat unrelated to the porno, but there's actually a lot of literature out there about the sexual undertones of that story. I haven't gotten to read any of it, but a teacher told me about it, and it sounds interesting. Oh and Mike, you read more women's magazines than any man OR woman I know. I guess I'll commend you for that, since most of them are pretty unbearable for me.
from ravengreen :
The Masseuse isn't porn, it's erotic film. Why is it that our films can be increasingly more violent, with realistic images thanks to increasing graphics technology, but we can't see explict sex? The masseuse is the story of a shy man's introduction to sexuality and how he falls with the woman who introduces him to it. We are sexual creatures, why can't we have a film that explores that side of humanity. Why must such a thing be labeled "Porn"? Why is it okay to show a man getting his fingers cut off one by one and cauterized by a lighter (Man on Fire), but a good blow job is disturbing and offensive?
from yeahimadork :
"The Masseuse" is good if you're into bondage. And, it has too much plot for my taste. I don't like my porn to have plots. Just the nasty stuff, please. And my cat bolts out of the room as soon as he sees me open the top drawer of my nightstand. The buzzing freaks him out big time. And happy anniversary. :)

Ah, the perks of being the last person on the planet to read your entries. What Zu said, mostly. I was actually going to touch on the regional cell phone thing as well, because, after living in Plano, aka, SpoiledRichGirl Central, and seeing girls on cell phones everywhere I went, it was quite a surprise to move to D.C. and find the exact opposite - the men are the ones that are seen using them more. I happen to hate having a cell phone and only keep one at the insistence of my parents (you know, for those 'emergencies' that will probably only happen when you DON'T have access to your phone). In fact, since working in a call center, I've developed even more resistance to phones and generally only use them if someone else calls me. So while I do have a hard time seeing the importance of calling your friends to tell them about your parking ticket at WalMart, I don't think it's a female-specific problem. Thongs...I've found among females that you either hate 'em or love 'em, and after developing a healthy fear of panty lines somewhere in my late teens, I tend to veer more towards the pro-thong side. I'm pretty cautious about it and would definitely not sit on a barstool if I had low-rider jeans on. But (and this goes with the guts hanging out, as well), you can't control how others present themselves in public. And yet you men still look, don't you? You still look and the thing is, this goes beyond thongs and exposed guts. I went out today in jeans, a tank top, and a sweater jacket, and got honked at twice and offered a free bag of chips in the grocery store. You wanna talk about chicks off in their own little cell phone worlds, but if men would get out of their world of female aesthetics for one second and focus on something else, it wouldn't matter what Jane Smiley down the street is wearing. I guess I don't get caught up in the attire of others. Women wear what they want, men do the same, and I have the power to look the other way if I want to.
from zuzus-petals :
Maybe the gender demographics of cell phone usages varies regionally. When I'm in DC it's mostly men I see strutting through airports or to power lunches on cell phones (when you eaves drop, the conversations don't match the suit.. and on the rare occassion when the conversation is about big money or something "impressive" it's spoken in overly loud voice so that not only the person next to them hears it, but also the person in the next terminal or on the next street. SO annoying!) And in SF area I'd say there's probably a sex bias of more men on cell phones than women - maybe because the tech-obsessed boy geeks (like my boyfriend.. not criticizing tech-obsessed boy geeks) like the latest cell phone technologies and you'll often hear them talking to their friend about the features of their new gadgets. It's not that I haven't seen 12 and 17 and 27 year old girls in public bathrooms, on the cell phone, telling their friends that they're in the bathroom. But I honestly don't know who the hell they're talking to - because my women friends don't do that to me. Probably it's because of that strong voice you're talking about, and I'd unwittingly (hmmm?) offend someone who was wasting my time with such jiberish on the phone and we wouldn't be friends long.... But then again, as I reflect on the reality of today, the most annoying phone call I took today was from a man who literally was telling people to have fun at lunch and having side conversations while he kept me on the phone for over an hour. I had him on mute and mostly ignored him - but it annoyed me greatly nonetheless and I realized whatever budding friendship had been there is likely killed by this telephone behavior.. but that was a man. Maybe it varies regionally... - Zu

So, #1, it's about the politics of being a minority. White men sometimes forget that women (even white women) are not part of the dominant and ruling class and men, particularly white men, are less aware of the effects of being a minority. You ever listen to black people talk about other black people? Or gay men talk about other gay men? You know, it's one thing to be gay but being an effeminate gay man "makes the rest of us look bad" or being transgendered "makes the rest of us look bad" or being black ghetto "makes the rest of us black people look bad" or blah, blah, blah. There more judgement within a group then there is from outside the group because the predominant culture only sees and judges these groups, blacks, women, gays, as monolithic groups and thus the groups become hypercritical in order to try to raise the bar of respectability among the predominant culture. I don't know if I'm making sense. This thing you talk about re: women tearing each other down, you see it in every minority group - but I've never heard white men talking about what some other white man did and saying, "it makes the rest of us white guys look bad." Mostly they don't actually see them selves as part of a group and accept it's a given that they're judged by the content of their character as individuals as opposed to as part of a larger group. They refuse to acknowledge affiliation. I think a case in point is this thing about the cell phone. I'd lay odds that just as many (if not more) men talk on cell phones than women - but it's an erroneous argument. You see this thing you don't like, you lay it on the chicks. I'm a woman, I hate cell phones. I hate phones. I loathe talking on the phone. My partner is a techy geek. He loves his Treo. Not only would I not be caught dead talking on a cell phone in line at Sam's Club, places like Sam's Club give me a headache and it's a rare, rare day when I make an appearance in those massive consumer warehouses. The incessant need to "connect" via technology as opposed to the real, tangible world around us is no doubt a unrecognized diagnosable pathology. It will undoubtedly lead, over generations, to unspeakable violence. In terms of the underwear thing.. I guess I fall in the camp as your workout partner - I don't really care if someone sees my underwear. If you're really that compelled to look up my shorts, by all means - whatever rocks your boat. Thongs are uncomfortable, and I don't care WHO you are. In terms of the belly hanging over the shorts - while on the one hand I'm with you on this, on the other hand I'm not. I'm fat phobic - I don't like to see it and I don't think "big" is "beautiful" - but I also have no interest in that anorexic thin thing. Partly I think, my aversion to fat is my own problem - I just need to get over it - people can wear whatever they want.. why do I care? On the other hand, I find it repelling. And if I had a third hand, I'd say even the most perfectly built, slender, athletic, strong, sexy woman (or man) looks best in blue jean shorts that are a little baggy and an slightly oversized Tshirt - some people say it's frumpy - I think it's frill'n hot. I see a gorgeous woman (or man) in skin tight pants, it's an total turn off - what a waste of beauty. But again, that's just my preference.. clearly, obviously, not everyone agrees with me. So while I get the whole, keep your tub covered thing - mostly we just gotta get over it and try to find the entertainment factor in an ocean of diversity. - my thirty seven cents. - Zu

Mike, dear boy, if you would watch the movie before making judgements on it, you would understand that they are unhappy with their marriages, and not having sex with their wives. It's not that they are hopelessly in love with their wives and fuck them every chance they get. They are both pretty miserable, and Health can only get it up with his wife if he thinks he is fucking Jake.

I'm torn on the New Orleans issue. I don't think we should give up on it so early - the general concensus seems to be that better city planning may help prevent a Katrina-tastrophe from happening again, and if there's even a grain of truth to that, it should be looked into. People say they'll never come back, but that's because the place is still a mess - if the government can for ONCE prove themselves capable of reviving a city with such historical and cultural importance to our country, people might change their minds. As for Marti gras, there is no bigger celebration than that for New Orleans, and it may just jump their economy enough to make a big difference. Time will tell, I guess.

Had to google those two goodfellas to be sure what they looked like but, eeeeuuuuw, even I wouldnt! And that's coming from someone who could technically be called a groupie since I hang around with musicians all the time (okay, so i live with one, doesnt mean I dont give him head on the tour bus tho!). The cologne thing? Its nice to get a whiff of it as you walk by but better if I can only smell it once I get REAL close! hehehe s x

Those damn strawberries were gooooood. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with nudity. I certainly don't see what it has to do with an actress and her acting career, but I don't find anything wrong with nudity in general. It's just something I don't understand why an actress/musician/whatever would want to do, when posing nude will reduce people's interest in what you have to say. Unless, of course, you *don't* have anything to say. I suppose you have nothing to lose, then. Without any obvious reason to pose nude, I can only assume celebrities do it to boost their popularity, and that's moreso what I don't care for. While we're on the train of thought, I happened to see those Willa Ford pictures in Playboy today. Not so bad looking, I guess.

Boxers or free ball, either way there is no elastic on the thigh to get in my way or snap back on my hand when copin' a feel. Teenage girls scantily clad...I've noticed here in NY on the subway tends to attract attention that most girls don't necessarily want or are prepared to handle and without a guardian can be seriously dangerous. In a perfect world girls/women should all be able to wear what they want whenever they want to, but unfortunately..it isn't so
from catspajamas :
definitely boxer breifs! yum! Also,yeah, teenage girls definitely need to put some clothes on, pedophiles or no pedophiles. My mother would have died before letting me leave the house like that at that age,and good for her.
from lostincoma :
I'll take child predartors for a thousand, Alex. I agree that clothes for young girls have reached disturbing levels of promiscuity. But the child predator thing...first of all, we can't say for sure that numbers have gone up. It could just be that the news is reporting it more, or even that victims are coming forward in larger numbers. Second of all, from what I know on the subject, it's really not about the sex for sexual predators. It's moreso about the control. Their radar isn't set off by a girl in a short skirt, it's set off by a girl, period, because their fantasy is to have control of another person. Children are obviously easy targets for this because they're more naive and susceptible to being controlled by an adult. That guy that wants to make castration legal for convicted sexual offenders? How does that solve anything, when it doesn't prevent the offender from still having control over his/her victims? I don't know...I'm still learning a lot about the subject, but one huge misconception about these people is that they do it for the sex.
from stepfordtart :

from hissandtell :
From my extensive research, I can safely say that men who allow their testicles to romp free tend to be repeat offenders. This, naturally, leads me to suspect that it's quite intentional and they're waiting for someone else to, ah, point it out to them. (You know, like the kind of person who smears food on his or her face in restaurants to embarrass the waiters.) For this reason alone, I refuse to even so much as acknowledge rampant ball-romping (which, in retrospect, sounds like it could be an annual event in Pamplona, don't you think?) because it only encourages them. Love, R xxx

I don't really have an underwear preference for men (besides, of course, OFF). Tighty whiteys really don't do it for me, though I do like boxer briefs and boxers. No speedo types, though. Yikes.
from lostincoma :
I think what I was trying to say was that while we do appreciate each other every day, V-Day allows us to focus on the relationship more and have an excuse to leave work on time or not talk to your mom on the phone for an hour or any other daily thing you're usually obligated to do. I don't believe in overkill - if I had a guy that bought me flowers every day/week/whatever, it'd get old fast and I probably would start noticing and appreciating it less. So flowers on V-Day is like an extra recognition of love/whatever. As for chocolate...we hardly ever keep chocolate in the house, so it's a pretty unique gift for me on V-Day. Nick and I had a completely traditional celebration of V-Day this year, and I found it to be the most enjoyable one yet. Nothing was forced, no one was stressed...I think it's what you make of it, and since I'm put off by the commercialization of it, I try to ignore that and have a good time regardless. Welcome back, Mike. :)

Ah.. welcome home. I personally LOVE Valentines Day.. it's pretty much my favorite holiday regardless of relationship status. I don't think I've ever given or received a card for Valentines Day.

Very Nicely Done.

Such an awesome episode last night. I knew the teacher was involved from the beginning when she said that her time would come soon. And I knew the Triton kid was involved because he was too up in V's face with the nemesis stuff, plus he was the only one who would have access to the test. I thought the teacher actually stole all the money, but then when they found the stuff in Thumper's locker (funny how none of the kids knew his real name), I knew it was Weevil. Besides that, I was just hoping that someone would knock Madison Sinclair the fuck out.

I don't know what to think about the Britney thing. On the one hand, it is obviously dangerous, but on the other hand, I think parents (especially first-time parents) have tons of screw-ups - they're just fortunate enough to not have their every move caught on camera. Vanity Fair - will comment when I see it, I guess, but five bucks says Keira barely shows any tantalizing areas of skin she hasn't shown before. And...Grammy's?

I don't turn the channel because it's too gruesome or scary. I love that shit! I turn the channel because in the first 10 minutes I watch, there is some of the most god-awful acting that I just can't take it. Maybe things get better as the movie really starts going? Next time it's on, I'll try to watch it in it's entirety. I never knew about DVD rot (well, I just got a DVD player last year) or the VHS mold as someone mentioned below. I'm so behind on the technologies.
from lostincoma :
Thanks for educating me about the dangers of DVD rot. I think I keep mine in fairly safe conditions, but there are some I keep in my CD binder. Are those safe, or should I evacuate them elsewhere? However, I'm not so sure about the tissues, Mike...anyone that has that many DVDs can afford to lose a few, in my opinion. :D And speaking of the Pumpkins, you know they're getting back together, right? Fuck their DVD (and now that you mention it, I can't quite find mine anywhere), let's hear some new music! Oh, and seeing as Sara does a pretty good job of ragging on your movie/actress tastes, I'll let you off the hook this time. :)

I've never seen Brotherhood of the Wolf or the Resident Evils, but I do enjoy all the other mvoies except the Dog Soldiers.

And word on the Sade love-making music and George Michael - "If you are the desert, I'll be the sea. If you ever hunger, hunger for me. What ever you ask for, that's what I'll be...."

Oh lord...one of my college Spanish professors once decided to teach us to salsa dance. So, ask yourself WHO, in the entire class, got paired up with the one dude who had no rhythm. Yep...just my luck. As for the cunt/pussy issue, we talked a bit about this in my Linguistics class once - firstly, how the meanings of words are subjective to each individual, and secondly, how word meanings change over time due to changes in culture and society. The 'N' word is a good example - while it used to have only negative conotations, black people today often use it in place of 'friend' or what-have-you. Similar things changes have happened with the word 'bitch', among women. So I think that, while 'cunt' and 'pussy' may have at one time been degrading terms, their increased and more casual usage has sort of decreased their vulgarity. Not completely, mind you, as some are still offended by it. And I should also mention that it depends on who you're talking to. In the company of close friends, I have no problem calling each other 'bitch' or whatever. But that might feel slightly less comfortable when I'm talking to someone where the boundaries are less established.
from yeahimadork :
I have no problem with the word pussy (in fact, I use it all the time) - or any ohter slang term for the vagina. I used to be disgusted by the word "cunt", but I started hanging out at this Irish bar, and I got over it REAL QUICK. I'll admit it is quite a turn on to hear a man say it when he's talking dirty. Oh, who am I kidding... I just like the dirty talk. It doesn't matter what it is. ;)

I feel the need to preface this by saying I've had too much coffee this morning. And that I love you, of course, but you just trigger that debater in me too damn much! These comments pages have always made me feel restricted, but I think I'll go all out this time (ha, I think that's your warning). Bush - from what I've heard about both incidents, it's against the law to wear clothing with writing on it in the area they were seen in. If that's the law, go ahead and arrest them, I guess. Other than that, why not set your freakin' mission aside for ONE night and follow the dress code, since you've been invited to the State of the Union address? Cindy Sheehan is a mystery to me...we still don't really know if her son was proud to fight, to die for his country, because his mother is too busy using his death for her own agenda. People grieve in different ways, but I think she needs to find a different method. Jessica Alba, I read in some article eons ago, does not do nude scenes because she knows what her dad would think and doesn't want him to see them. Which I found pretty stupid when I started seeing her *practically* naked everywhere else. You're nude in a two-piece anyway, it's just a matter of men having to use their imaginations a little more. Mike! Why leave people off your list simply because they're not as recognized?! My own list would be comprised of mostly news reporters, but I think I trust the intellect of my audience to know who they are. If they don't, their loss. Don't be goin' soft on me, boy! Jessica Alba may have the (airbrushed, tweaked-by-the-camera-lens) body of a goddess, but I'd like to see if she can pass second grade math. Oh, and summer - ;P Oh, and Mike - <3

I think sleeping with someone is a comfort thing, whether it's a sexual partner or not. As kids, we sleep with stuffed animals and sometimes our parents for that reason.

The ones that like it are open to comfort, while the ones that don't have intimacy issues.

Thank you for adding me, though to be honest I have no idea why you did. I have to say hoever, many of your views are exactly like mine. I was just talking to my mother the other day about the rap culture and just how irritating it is seeing every film with the same plotline. In regards to the note before mine, Will Smith may be a black idol but he is one of the very few that can be described as such. Back to your entry, yes I'm glad someone has pointed this out at least because I'm tried of the racial mollycoddling too, because of the racism that spread over the ages many people won't speak out about this and it's gotten to an self-desructing extreme that won't be breached due to P.C problems. Also pubic hair? You really wanna know? xx
from lostincoma :
First off, like you said, we can't hold rappers to role model standards. Hell, we can't hold any musicians to that status - if you look at 'white' mainstream music, there aren't many role models there, either. Kids will be kids, of course, and aspire to be like their favorite music star anyway. But it *is* possible to be inspired by music stars - you just have to look deep enough. And I think that's the problem, with black youth, with *any* youth - they stay too much on the surface. Jay-Z may appear to be just another hos-bling-cars rapper, but some may look at where he is now (president of Def Jam) and be motivated by that. Jessica Simpson is pretty fucking ditzy and shallow, but some may be inspired by her not giving in to the record company's wishes to 'sex up her act' and compete with Britney. Some kids will get inspired by the right things and some won't, and I think that's where education and parenting come in. Going back to the black role models thing, I think there are some, in the rap community and elsewhere in the public eye, that are good icons to look up to. Will Smith is one of them, in my opinion.
from summerroll :
I completely agree with you. When I was in middle/high school, I was always the only "colored" person (or 1 of 2-3) in advanced/honors/AP classes. And because I chose to speak proper english and learn stuff, I was seen as "acting white". Why? Because they don't believe that education will get them anywhere since they have people like Fiddy cents telling them "It's okay to be a gangbanger. Look, I've been shot upteen times, now I own a mansion!" You can't change ignorance that has been passed on downt through generations. Honestly, it's a black american mentality in which they expect things to change for them instead of trying to change things for themselves. And it pisses me off because as a "black" person, I get lumped into the same category, when I'm not African American and I will never consider myself to be (my family is from the Caribbean). That's not to say that they all act like that, but the greater majority does. I see it with the kids I work with. You ask them what they want to do after high school and the answer is always along the lines of wanting to be rich, to have a big house, to have an expensive car. We used to give them stipends every year, but before the day was over, the money was already blown on a cell phone, or a new pair of sneakers. And when I say, "why didn't you save some of it, put it aside for college, or something," they laugh, yet, they can't afford money to buy a $1 slice of pizza for lunch. Apparantly sneakers are more important than living. Like I said, things will never change until they decide to change.

But common now, she had to know that it was around that time of month; white pants should be a no for the 10 days surrounding. In other news, I hope you're ahving a nice visit!

Apparently they were bull sharks. Rainbow Channel, where it happened and where locals avoid swimming, is the entry point into Moreton Bay (which surrounds BrisVegas) for sharks, and at this time of year massive bull sharks come over the bar. (Apparently there were many dolphins about at the time, too.) A local said, "It's nothing to see 10 or a dozen bull sharks under our boat when we are crabbing and they are really aggressive – they are not like normal sharks." Love, R xxx

Hey man, thanks for the shout out but I doubt the twat will get an happy time this weekend. I hope you have a great New Year's Eve with you gal. You deserve it!
from yeahimadork :
"Happy twats all around"... HAHAHAHAHA! Have fun with your girl this weekend. :)

Brown people ARE ugly. The Game has a shoe? You'd think he'd learn how to rap before tackling other arenas. Then again, maybe he knows a lot about show designing, in which case, he *should* quit his day job. Or something. I didn't forget your email, by the way. Things have been hectic, but I'll get back to you as soon as shit settles down. :)
from yeahimadork :
Dude. I saw MIA open for Gwen Stefani last month, and I seriously couldn't hang with that music. It was loud, and you couldn't understand a word she said (she's beautiful, though, that's for sure). That could have all just been bad audio, too, so I don't automatically write her off. But I didn't really like it. Plus, she had all this disturbing political video playing in the background, and it was a total buzzkill (riots, murder, police brutality, etc). Ok... I'm not even sure what the point of this note is anymore. And, HEY! Lay off the cat ladies, bucko. I might be single on New Year's but I won't be kissing my cat, that's for sure. I may be kissing my vibrator, though. But that's a whole other story... :)
from lostincoma :
I never really saw the appeal of kissing. Really, what's so hot about salivating in someone else's mouth? Sounds gross and overrated to me. Thanks for the play-by-play, though. I'll be sure to use those tips the next time I make out with a girl. :D
from blindessence :
Oh yes, I know it's bad but the sex was so good. And just... I don't know, this time it felt different... like different good. I come out of it without feelings for him, I mean, there's still some but not with the same magnitude they had before. As for oral, it was really good... I like the combo kind, you know... the lick, plus the finger(s)... that's the best. I did my best for him too... for his oral action! lol. I can't remember what else your note said/asked except you were not impressed to read it was Mike! I KNOW, I KNOW! I'm a bad seed. But sometimes seeds just need some sex!
from blindessence :
I'm so glad you've started your sex talks again. I'm still high off the Christmas Day (but Night) sex I had! Ahhhh. Yay for sex!
from yeahimadork :
Ha! I was just thinking the other day while reading you that you promised pictures FOREVER ago, yet we've seen no Hedgy pics. Let's see the goods, mister. ;)
from summerroll :
I always talk to people about The Christmas Story, especially my kids when they talk about playing with BB guns, and no one ever knows what the hell I'm referring. And I know they show it every year because it was on last night. Anway, I'm glad your job hell is over and I hope you have a great Christmas today!
from summerroll :
Hell yeah! And we could talk about V. Mars and MTB and watch movies like The Lost Boys and The Last Dragon and American Anthem and a bunch of other cool stuff.
from summerroll :
I'm glad Bonnie is okay. Sounds like you need a break from that job. I applaud you for being able to work in a retail store during this time of year. I can't even walk into one. And having a sex drive is a good thing. So is having someone to have a sex drive with. Lucky bastard!
from lostincoma :
Having been felt up by way too many Mexicans in my life, I have to say I feel for ya, Mike. May the post-Christmas season bring you some better action, my friend. :)

I love me some Richard Pryor, although my fave movie is "Hear no evil, see no evil" with Gene Wilder, where one is deaf and the other is mute and they have to work together to solve a mystery. Great stuff. Just like people tell you that they can see you married, people tell me that they can see me with tons of kids, even though I'm not really interested in having any (maybe 1). Especially the kids who I work with; even though they think I'm a little strict at times, they like that I'm nuturing and don't sugarcoat anything. They're weird kids.
from lostincoma :
You and your brand hatred! Yeesh...well, I can't say my opinion's all that swayed by what others are wearing, but I do agree it's odd how practically every girl I know wears VS. But you have to think about what else is available, too - not much. Frederick's of Hollywood is ok, but when you want some hot, good quality underwear, VS is the way to go. As for the Ugly and Stinky saga...I'm wondering if maybe her sense of smell isn't quite up to par...I can't imagine many women would want to bang a guy that smells THAT bad, unless they couldn't smell him in the first place. Good for her, I guess.
from flyakite :
With names like Ugly and Stinky, I'm sure the sex will be "stellar"
from yeahimadork :
"Happy twats all around, okay, ladies?" Hahahaha. You know, much like Ugly, I am a 32 year old woman living with her cat (though, thankfully, I have much knowledge of sex). Uh oh.
from summerroll :
On of my best friends lives in Potsdam, so I went to visit her for New Years 2003-2004. We had to go into Ottowa to find people to party with. Potsdam is so tiny and I was the only person of color with that square mile so I got strange looks where ever I went. Thank goodness that my friend is finally graduating and moving to DC in January, because i was never going back up there again. That trip was the first (and only) time I've seen snow, though.
from lostincoma :
Well, I can't say I know many guys that hate thongs...um, Victoria's Secret. Yeah, I used to absolutely hate them - my friend would drag me in there, and I always thought their stuff was so ugly. Then I found the online store - MUCH better. They actually have my size, and I no longer have to go digging through the nasty flower prints in the bargain bin. Sweet. I never quite warmed up to the idea of shopping for underwear in public anyway. As for the cell phone girl, that's pretty sad. Cells are quite possibly the most distracting mechanisms I've ever seen in my life, I've literally seen people walk into walls while talking on them. It's always hard to take sides on these stories because we weren't there to witness exactly what happened, but in the driver's position, it must be hard to make a split-second decision like that. Either way, he probably would have risked more lives swerving (hitting others who actually DO look both ways before crossing or tipping the bus over), so...sucks to be her, I guess.
from lostincoma :
Haha. Not a single one of my girl friends has masturbated before. Christ, you can't even mention the word around them. Then again, girls generally get into that at later ages than boys. And society has a way of telling girls it's wrong to enjoy themselves and sex like that, so some of it might be ingrained at an early age. And fucking hell, you're going to NIN - I want a full report when you get back!
from summerroll :
NIN bringing folk together. So wonderful. The concert here was cancelled due to Hurricane Wilma. It was supposed to be rescheduled for December, which would have meant that I would have been able to go, but I their schedule was too tight to fit another date in. Oh well. I also do the side lift thing if I'm sitting down and have to fart. But I only do it when I'm alone or with really close friends. If other people see me doing it, then I can't blame the smell on them.
from lifeasme66 :
Just wanted to say thanks for visiting, and for adding me! I'll be back to read more, I like your style =) **HUGS!!**
from yeahimadork :
Hahaha... whenever my Mom's really loaded, she always (ALWAYS) makes out with my best friend's husband. It's pretty sad to see my 50 year-old Mom trying to molest this poor man, but what's funnier is both of their spouses are doing nothing to stop it except laugh their asses off. Also, I am sure I don't have to tell you, but I am all for girls masturbating more. I can't believe there are girls who don't (or won't, in the case of a few uptight broads I know) do it. You're a lucky man to have a girl who knows what she likes and isn't afraid to admit it.
from summerroll :
I've seen Boondock Saints, but it's one of those movies where I've seen the beginning and the end, but not the chewy center. It's one of the movies that my old roomate and all his friends would watch everytime when they were shitfaced. And a reply to your email is coming to you soon. I swear. You know I'm slow at the emailing thing. ;)
from hissandtell :
Um, have I emailed you, darling? Or have I emailed you back? Or not? Gosh, it's been so long that I plumb forget. Either way, I'm pretty sure it's your turn to write. Or not. Love, R xxx
from koi-ishly :
your entry about your smelly feet made me laugh, adding you =)
from lostincoma :
Look, I got the right notes page this time! Regarding Ugly, you have to wonder if she really feels she's missing out, when she doesn't even know what kissing is like or if she likes it. I think a lot of girls, myself included, are obsessed with the 'idea' of kissing or that 'special' first kiss. But when it finally happened for me, I couldn't believe how overrated it was. As for the overpopulation thing...I am of the opinion that a license should be required to breed, but if you look at America, our fertility rate has dropped so drastically that we're in danger of dropping below the level of population replacement within the next fifty years. Europe's already there, with an even lower fertility rate, so...I'm not so sure that idea of having tons of kids is still that prevalent, at least in American society.
from blindessence :
What could we talk about these days! Oh, and... I don't like beer! :) I'm just being a pain in the ass, as per usual!
from lostincoma :
Re: relationships - you're really not going to make anybody happy with what you do. From my experience, if I'm single, everyone's trying to hook me up. If I'm taken, they're questioning how I can possibly live without wondering if I'm missing out. Whatever that means. In any case, everyone's different in that respect. If you wanna play the field, play the field, but if you prefer one at a time, power to ya. As for this work situation...are you saying Ugly's nervous about kissing, but she's contemplating flashing the guy??? There's something not quite right about that. I think they need to go for some freaking coffee first, before they even think about the horizontal tango.
from blindessence :
An hour and a half away? Who cares!! If you want to be with her, there's no reason to move on from her just because DOUG says so! Who cares if you can get laid every night, it's better when you have the anticipation of seeing that "special someone" who you can do it with. It makes the whole thing that much better...
from flyakite :
You took your life in your hands going into that ladies room. Really you did. :)
from lostincoma :
From the little I've seen of men's bathrooms (and don't let your mind wander with that too much), girls' bathrooms are MUCH worse. I have a friend who literally has a phobia of public bathrooms. In high school, we had off-campus lunch, and she would literally drive all the way home, just to go to the bathroom. Now you know why. :D
from summerroll :
Man, I hate those nasty bitches that pee all over the seats. And I NEVER sit on public toilets; I always pee standing up. It's just gross how many people are so dirty and have absolutely no consideration for others.
from flyakite :
Shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Akin to suicide, I'm thinkin'
from lostincoma :
"Tom "Pass me the turkey baster as I impregnate this bitch" Cruise"...lmfao. Only because it gave me a mental image that is entirely too possible of happening. In regards to the note you left me, I'm willing to acknowledge that there are 'seedy' and 'upscale' strip clubs. But I still don't think going to a nicer strip club changes the message that's being sent out. The guys may treat the girls with more respect, but they're still there for the same reason guys go to the seedy ones - to look at girls. Then again, I shouldn't be talking, since the closest I've ever gotten to a strip club is Hooters. Good wings, lol.
from lostincoma :
Strippers. I kind of have mixed feelings about that. You could easily say the women are in control, and the men are the ones being expolited, but legally allowing strip clubs allows the same 'women can be treated as objects' notion that's ultimately hurting society. I dunno, if stripping's what you want/have to do, then do it, but I wish women would think about the message it sends out. This is partly why violence against women is such a problem. And before I start sounding like a feminist...Double Dare! Dude...I saw this documentary thing on TV about Marc Summers and his OCD problem. He apparently had the WORST time hosting that show because he would have to run off the set as soon it was over and take a shower. Crazy.

Hehe a flatlader eh? I'm originally from Wisconsin. I'll be flying over you tomorrow and waving. Happy Turkey day :)

Your posts about the people you work with make me laugh. Oh, the names I could come up with for the people I work with.... I would recommend reading American Gods or Neverwhere. Both excellent examples of Gaiman.
from kellbelle :
THanks for adding me as a fave :) Where are you from?
from lostincoma :
Ugh...even since I spent last semester getting up for work so early, I haven't been able to really sleep past 6:30 or 7. Which is shitty because it forces me to go to bed before midnight. I miss the days where I could function on three hours of sleep. God, I'm old.
from yeahimadork :
Dude. My friend's Christmas party is 80's themed, so I am in charge of the music. I already have about 12 hours of 80's music, and about an hour of it is tv themes. I <3 the 80's. Also, your stories from work crack me up. The saga of Ugly and Stinky has been quite entertaining, my dear.
from flyakite :
I seem to have very little time for my hobbies. Do you like Neil Gaiman? I LOVE reading anything he writes. I'm reading Anansi Boys now.
from lostincoma :
Entertainment vs. integrity...I think when it comes down to it, all of us have a line that we don't stoop below. I tend to veer away from mainstream movies, but I still love Bad Boys, and while I like music that's challenging, I'll often settle for a cheap hook. I guess my points are - 1: Aren't ALL celebrities lacking in integrity these days? and 2: Don't most of us eat it up anyway? By the way, Keira had a nip-slip at some event the other day. Not nearly as revealing as Tara Reid's, her dress just came down a little more than it should have.
from summerroll :
Just gonna give you the answer to the question you posed a couple entries ago. And on the subject of Kiera Knightly, did you see the movie she did with Thora Birch where 4 kids locked themselves in an old bomb shelter; i think it was called "The Hole" or something like that. Point: it was really weird but I liked it a lot. (Plus, KK is naked in it.)
from jimmysworld :

Ductails and Heathcliff...two of my favorites. I love how Heathcliff had the regular version first and then the second part of the show was Heathcliff and the rest of his friends as part of a gang. Oh, cartoons were so good when we were kids. Now most of them are crap. Email coming your way soon, when I have time to sit down and write.

It's still in the 80s down here, so I assume it's still warm enough in Florida for dem sharks to be attackin'. Best Buy sucks...I actually signed up for the eight free issues a few years ago, but they ended up billing me 36 bucks, even though I cancelled. Never did get it sorted out. Stupid whores. Conan rocks. Keira...meh. I just watched The Jacket with her in it last night, and it was slightly disappointing. Luckily, Adrian Brody held most of my attention. :D

I can identify with the work thing.. Sex is a one-woman show for me right now. :(
from yeahimadork :
First of all, bucko, there is NOTHING wrong with a single girl talking to her cat. NOTHING!!! ;) As for what I want in bed... I am pretty open to whatever happens as long as I get a lot of foreplay. Lots of kissing, lots of oral (for me and him). I do like it a little rough - I like a take charge man. And I have really good orgasms from behind. But what I really like, and what really sends me off, is when I am in missionary, and after we come, he stays inside of me, and we just lay, kissing, still totally tangled in each other, still breathing heavy, and still riding the wave from our orgasms... that's what I really like. Now I'm excited. I hope I have batteries... ps - I am not getting any right now by choice... because the person I want to get it from is many many miles away from me (like 3000, dammit). Shhh... that's a secret, though. ;)
from summerroll :
Have I not told you how cute you are? Very cute, very cute. (Wish I could see some of those often talked about muscles :-P) Nothing much is going on on MTB3, except that they are in my neck of the woods (tons of bikinis!). They've been doing lots of dancing, which is my favorite thing because I love watching dancing and I love watching Laurie Ann the choreographer. She always brings the crazy. Boom boom kat! She definitely makes certain parts of the show worthwhile. I'm still waiting for the catty-girl drama, though; there hasn't been that much this season.
from blindessence :
Oooh the trials and tribulations of Ugly and Stinky. That's pretty funny. It reminds me of how retarded I can be, although I am not THAT ugly but I defintely do not smell.
from summerroll :
Watched V. Mars this morning. Was that a rat I saw? It was a great epsiode. I have a similar story. My friend, who I went to visit in Bolivia, gave a guy a note like that. She had always been crushing on this bartender. When she found out that she was leaving for Bolivia in 2 months, she questioned whether she should just go for it and ask him out, but she didn't have the guts. At the end of one hell of a night of bar hopping, we end up back at his bar. He gave her a free play on the Juke Box since her birthday was coming up. This was our drunken sign that he must be in love with her and they are destined to be together forever. So she wants to say something to him, but is to chicken to do so. I, being the great friend that I am, convinced her that she should leave him a note. We ask him for pen and paper and she writes: "I really like you and I think that we could have fun together. Please check yes or no and hand it back to me in gym class." She put her number at the bottom. She shows it to me and asks if it was okay. Again, great friend, I say yeah, no, it doesn't sound stupid at all. We call him over, hand it to him and run as fast as we can out of there. The next morning, she says, "did I really give him that note? Did you really tell me it was okay to give that to him? We must have looked like the biggest losers. He's not gonna call." Three days pass by and nothing. We go out to try to track him down and nothing. She goes home the next morning, and her uncle says, "Some asshole called for you this morning at 3:00 am. No I don't know who it was because I hung up on him before he got there." Turns out it was him when she called the number back, but alas, she had gotten his voicemail. They never did get a chance to go out. So moral of this story: notes are alwyas a bad idea once past junior high.

32 years, eh? That's a pretty long time, but I'm not surprised it happens. I've known people in high school that are just oblivious to the romantic relationship aspect of life...which is probably a good thing, since there's way too much fixation on that anyway. I wouldn't necessarily say she needs a man, just some friendly company, man or woman. I'm assuming she does have friends, right? Oh, and I soooo thought I was going to end up like a cat lady...minus the cats because I'm allergic, lol.

Mmmm! Moe's. I tend to get the naked "Homewrecker" because then I don't cause as much mess. And I also like telling them that I want it naked. I agree with the previous comment: hands on the head is a no-no for me.
from yeahimadork :
I think it's hilarious how many people on diaryland just refer to me as "hoar". Who knew a retard hate mailer would start a trend? Also, for the standing blowjob, I very much enjoy the man playing with my hair. I do NOT however, enjoy the man pushing my head down trying to force me to deepthroat and/or let him fuck my face. For me, personally, I don't like it, and it will end that bj QUICKLY and without sastisfaction.
from summerroll :
Slut-watcher will remain single. It's funny that for guys like that, if they're good-looking or suave, they get girls to fall for them. And they won't unlearn their ways until some girl treats them the way they've been treating women all their life. Unfortunately, that rarely happens, so we're stuck with them

Yeah, I'm a bit hurt. But I only think about it when someone brings it up. Like I said, I'm so boggled with other things right now that I don't even have time to worry about it. I think when things calm down for me then I'll feel the full effect of hurt, but it's just not there now.

You knew I couldn't leave this one alone, didn't you? I vote for the lights on low. You know, when you are 5'1" and you have weighed 245 pounds, and you now weigh 165 pounds, and gravity is doing a serious number on your body, you don't REALLY want to be explosed in FULL light! But even as horrid as my body is, it still has its nice parts when lit by warm golden lamplight. And Zeb votes for lamplight too...even though he's very slim and fit, he's a bit shy. ~Rosie~
from summerroll :
Lights off...but not pitch black. You have to be able to see each other. Lights on are too distracting for me. Not that I'm bored or it's not good, but that I always catch things out of the corner of my eye and feel the need to investigate. But I must say, I am not a fan of looking at the penis. I think it's ugly. But I'm not discriminating because I think the vagina is ugly as well. I don't know, to me, the phrase "bumping uglies" is very true.

From what I've read and heard from all the "experts" like Nurse Sue from the Sunday Night Sex Show, kids at that age are supposed to explore themselves. That it's the ones that don't who end up frigid and not able to orgasm. I don't know what she would think about two kindergarten boys fellating each other, but who knows. Moving on....I thought you would enjoy this: http://www.blender.com/guide/articles.aspx?id=1726

Wait... was Veronica Mars on last night? We had baseball on here in California. Do they replay the episode? Dammit. Anyhoo, when I used to work in daycare, when the kindergartners would lay down for nap time,a few of them used to play with themselves ALL THE TIME. I never saw anything like it. There was one little girl who used to lay on her stomach and grind on her hand the entire time. Who knew?!
from summerroll :
V. Mars was great last night! I loved when that 09er got knocked the fuck out by the bus driver's daughter. I wish she was the new addition to the show instead of that other girl. For some reason, I just can't stand her. Her character is too much. I don't know. I want to get the S1 DVDs, but I'll probably have to wait until my finances are looking a little better. And bring on MTB! I can't wait.
from yeahimadork :
DMB live is fantastic. I know people who didn't care for him, but had a great time at the show. It's just a perfect meld of audience and artists. And, I am curious how Katie, being a "virgin" and all, conceived that little freaky cult baby. Especially since I think Tom's a big queer and runs screaming from the vagina. Get the Fiona CD.

from summerroll :
Aubrey is my fave too! She really does have IT and I wish she wouldn't waste her time with Dum Diddy. Most likely she'll get chosen for the group which means she'd get tied up into a horrible contract and we all know what has happened to all of Dum Diddy's artists (except for B.I.G.: absolutely nothing. I can't stand Dum Diddy. He's so arrogant for someone who is so ignorant. But I will watch the show because he always brings the drama. And so does a house full of primadonnas.

I think most of the girls done here do the Brazilian Bikini wax, which I beleive takes off everything except a landing strip. I'm not sure. I'm too chicken to wax that area (bad experience with NADS on my legs). I, personally shave, but not all of it, only because I think it looks weird with all of it gone. But I guess some guys like the pre-puberty look. And it's definitely the older women (and by older I mean 35 and up) who let everything hang out in the locker room. And you can keep your flaccids. I don't want to see one unless it's ready for action.
from summerroll :
Dare I ask, how does one get the nickname "CrotchRot"?
from lost1985 :
Thanks for the e-mail..missed you! Oh yea, Paris is way worse than Britney. They're both kinda bad but, haveta say she sucks more. Booo to stupid-blonde-attention-whores!
from alainabelle :
Hey, hedgehoggy - I was wondering if I could get into your diary? Thanks! ~Poppy
from summerroll :
The kids that I work with are so into that hiphop shit. They throw around nigger left and right, but when one of the white or hispanic kids say it, they start raising holy hell. Then they come to me bitching because they think I'm gonna do something it. And I tell them, I heard you saying it 5 minutes ago. If you don't want other people to use it then you don't use it. Because the only reason the other kids say it is because they hear it so often and they think it's okay to. Personally, the word means nothing to me. If someone ever said it to me maliciously, it just shows me how ignorant they are, and I'd probably just laugh (just like when some white bread, white boy from Jersey told me he'd bust a cap in my ass when I asked him to not blow his smoke in my face....fucking idiot). But anyway, I just hate when people who use it all the time get into fights with other people who they deem aren't worthy to use it. And I feel you on the diary thing. I only have like 3 readers, but I write primarily for me and don't really care how many people read. If I get a few visitors, great, but I can live without them.
from lost1985 :
oh my! lockage..I'm lost...may I please read? whalen51@potsdam.edu
from veronicabond :
oops - i accidentally press sent so soon. if i am nice can i pretty, pretty please have the password??? veronicabondxoxo@hotmail.com I miss your diary!
from veronicabond :
YOU ARE LOCKED!! AND SO SUDDENLY!!!
from hissandtell :
The photos, hey? I'm tempted to make a pathetic pun on asinine asses (if not donkey penises) and L(l)amas but I won't. Fabbo pictures, though. Love, R xxx
from blazingstar :
Hey...could I have the password? Pretty pretty please? I gave you mine!
from summerroll :
Dude! Bus off the cliff! Different boyfriend (even though I think I prefer Logan, but think he might have had something to do with the bus)! Charisma Carpenter! It was everything I wanted and more. The only thing I didn't like was the "two in the pink one in the stink" reference. Eeeeww.
from summerroll :
Cool Pics. It always amazes me how many people "dress up" for these things. The costumes were awesome. Spidey definitely had some extra webbing in his pants. Enjoy ANTM and V.Mars double feature tonight. We'll have to talk about them later.
from blindessence :
You locked! NO!!!!!
from yeahimadork :
Um... what Hiss and Summerroll said.
from summerroll :
Locked up so soon??? I hope I'm one of the lucky to get the password. I even have on my pouty "pretty please" face.
from hissandtell :
Who does a woman have to fax around here to get a password, mate? x
from yeahimadork :
1. Sex with younger men is AWESOME. Because they are so teachable, have lots of energy, and you can get them to do everything exactly how you like it. I highly recommend to the ladies. 2. You BETTER give me the password, bucko. ;)
from hissandtell :
So, darling one, I await with heaving bosoms and gasping breaths the opportunity to unlock your myriad mysteries and explore your multitudinous machismo. Or something. (Hey, I wouldn't lie to you, doll; trust me, I'm a doctor.) Love, R xxx
from blindessence :
You never cease to impress....
from summerroll :
OK. So how "small" are these guys if they can fit into a jelly donut? That's just odd. As odd as Walmart selling vibrators.
from summerroll :
You know, most black guys will NOT go down on a girl at all, yet they demand to have their dicks sucked. They have no clue about what give and take is. Hispanics, oon the other hand, love it. You can't keep them away from that area.
from blueavenue :
you keep your pits smooth?! that is so weird! lol. but yeah, guys who shave their forearms, ugh, they totally get all pokey. ouch. that was hilarious what you said about your leg hair blowing in the wind.
from summerroll :
Balls stuck to thighs...quite an image for 9 am. I will be thinking about that all day at work. Thanks!
from blindessence :
Are you refering to the pictures from my MSN space?? Most of them, I'm drunk out of my face in! :)
from blueavenue :
last night when we went to see "wedding crashers" (2 thumbs up), we saw a trailer for a movie with keira knightley called "domino." i've never really liked her above & beyond, but damn if that movie doesn't look really good.
from yeahimadork :
Guys like Joe suck ass. And, of course I am curious to hear what your views are on going down on girls! Also FYI, John Ashcroft was launching a major attack on the porn industry, but then 9/11 happened, and put it on the backburner. Now, bring on the oral talk. ;)
from summerroll :
Well now we know why Joe isn't with his artist girlfriend anymore. I never could understand why some guys take a girlfriend when all the want to do is fuck is around. You'd think that a gf (or bf for the girls that do it) would just complicate matters.
from summerroll :
Was Kiera Knightly was in Star Wars E1? I thought it was Natalie Portman. But I think they look so much a like that sometimes I get confused.
from blueavenue :
yay for the tag! good answers, yes. and dude: what the hell is this about renee and kenny??!! did i miss this? enjoy your sunday....XO!
from lost1985 :
It's nice to know that there are men out there who appreciate all the little things girls do to make them feel special & sexy. go sara!
from ravengreen :
Sweetheart, it might be time to invest in combination locks.
from blueavenue :
i LOVE penguins. and yet...i still haven't seen that movie. cuz i totally suck. but yeah, my fave fiona songs are "fast as you can" and "criminal." i agree with basically everything you said about break-up inducing situations. and i TOtally need my space. there's a lot to be said for spending time alone sometimes. k gotta work!
from summerroll :
"Criminal" is an incredible song! And its one of those songs that when it comes on, I just drop everything to sing my heart out along with it for the next 3 minutes. I love Fiona's voice because it's a lot like my singing voice...deep; and she uses it so well. I'm with you on the V. Mars and MTB3. I hate Diddy, but I love that these girls actually think that Diddy will give them a career and that they fight over the stupidist things. Silly girls.
from yeahimadork :
I am SO hooked on Veronica Mars thanks to you. I can't wait for it to come back. And, if you like Michelle Rodriguez, you should watch Girl Fight. It's great. :)
from summerroll :
I loved The Renegade. And Lorenzo Lama's small part in Grease (one of my all time fave movies).
from summerroll :
My little kitty moped for a week and half when I was gone, or so I was told. And she only warmed up to her sitter the last 3 days before i got back. Now she won't leave me alone. Sometimes they are just so needy. I'll definitely check out the bad kitty book.
from blueavenue :
hey buddy! great updates. can't wait for the pics.
from yeahimadork :
Ugh. I used the wrong form of the word for site. I hate when people can't get their grammar straight.
from yeahimadork :
I saw the bad cat book, and it is indeed hilarious. I almost bought it, but then I thought if I did, it would cement that whole "crazy cat lady" reputation I seem to be getting. Also, upload your pictures to a sight like photobucket or imageshack. They do free image hosting, and you can post them in your diary. I use photobucket, but there are a lot to choose from. :)
from blindessence :
Who says I have a fantastic ass??! ... Besides myself and I? ... Birthday was crap! What can be said.... hope yours was much better. And who knows... Mike end up on my lawn, as in, coming into my house.. for some "fun times" sometime soon. The parents go away at the end of September. Whos to say what may happen. It's up to me to get into contact with him. I'm afraid, I know I shouldn't do it, but I so do want to. I'm a bad girl with a bad ass.
from yeahimadork :
Dude. I am such a slacker, I totally forgot your birthday was the sixth. So, happy belated birthday. I know that if I had told my readers that my birthday was on the 28th, they'd be sure to remember it. On the 28th. Of September. Which is my birthday. (I'm SO subtle). ;) Glad your dragon con was fun. You MUST post pictures!
from blueavenue :
guess what? i'm thinking about you. happy birthday! hope it was a good one.
from summerroll :
Happy Birthday Man! Hope you're enjoying your time with the Milkshake and that we hear from you soon.
from blindessence :
Happy Birthday tomorrow!!!
from sexychelle :
Love the diary often read but always something comes up so thought while its quiet here I will drop you a couple of lines keep up the excellant writing
from wildrosie :
Go ahead. *Snif* Just leave us. See if we care. No, no...(Rosie breaks into song) Don't turn around, cause you're gonna see my heart breakin'...But truly, have a safe trip, and when I get back from LA we can compare notes on prices and availability of fuel.~Rosie~
from hissandtell :
Oh, dear. You know that literally hundreds of times a day I ask myself, "WWHD?" and weep oceans of tears because I simply don't know the answer, right? Of course, a great many of those occasions are when my husband reveals his penis in all its raging glory and makes me an indecent proposal which may or may not involve the dining table... Anyway, have fun, darling. I'll miss you. Smooches, and a teensy little opportunistic grope. Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
You know, if you're going to continue to call me a 'hoar', at least you could plug my diary. Sheesh. However, I'm willing to let it go if you send me dirty pictures. That's fair, right? ;)
from yeahimadork :
First, you little attention whore, you know your little diaryland minions will miss you. Second, how sad is it that I know ALL the words to that New Kids song? Have fun. Take pictures. :)
from hissandtell :
Oooh! *I*'ll miss you big mobs, darling! (And, amazingly, *I*'m still feeling the afterglow of a good bonking on the kitchen table as we speak - and it's not quite 2.30 pm Sunday here...) Have a fabulous time with your divine Sara and take lots and lots of photographs, allrighty? Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
SmokeD. I quit almost six years ago - thank god. I never knew what a gross habit it was until I quit and could smell it on other people! YUCK. Happy birthday to us!
from summerroll :
I donīt have time to read all the entries Iīve missed, but I just wanted to tell you hi from Bolivia...(waves) Hi!!! Hey, isnīt someones b-day coming up soon?

Oh, you shameless hussy. Send me your address and a wish-list (and T-shirt size if you dare, big boy) and I shall see what I can do. Love, R xxx

Thank God the French opera houses have evolved from the olden days...I've never been more grateful for la toilette.

My WW2 prof referenced the History Channel as The Hitler Channel, because he said that you could always turn it on and find Nazis.
from yeahimadork :
Whew, you know what that firemen talk does to me, mister. ;) I am so glad there are so many others whose pets are more than just animals to be kept around the house. Poor little Jethro! That reminds me - when I was visiting my hillbilly relatives in North Carolina a million years ago, I met a guy who really was named Jethro, and, well... he was just as one might suspect someone named Jethro would be. Mulleted, nearly toothless, and proudly ignorant of such things as basic English and hygiene. Good times.
from hissandtell :
Of course I still love you, silly. I broke my computer screen last week and have been frustratedly borrowing other people's since then. Also, I am busy being distracted by visiting girlfriends who force me to drink margaritas, talk about mitochondrial DNA, watch "Deadwood" and play Scrabble when I should be leaving witty notes on Diaryland. But I will write you an email soon, I swear. So, you know, don't take me off your buddies' list and trash me in an entry just yet, please... (Oh, smooch, sugarbear. I'm being facetious. Slap me.) Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Joan Jett! Ah, I spent almost every day of my teens hearing how I looked exactly like her...and I still occasionally hear it, in fact, when "I Love Rock and Roll" gets trotted out on MusicMax Eighties weekends. Penis size? Perhaps I'll save the details on that for an email, too - which I promise I will write you when I get my laptop back from the Magic Boffins Repair Shop. But I will say that I agree with miss rosie and miss yeah. The best sex I ever had with a man before J was with someone whose penis was quite average in length and proportions - but gracious, it had excellent manners and instincts for making itself comfortable. And the worst sex I ever had was with a man whose penis was absurdly enormous. Those encounters were quite painful - even by my standards. I personally like large penises (possibly because I'm tall) but I'm more interested in, and impressed with, technique than size. Looking forward to your divine blokin' photographs, baby. Love, R xxx

You're welcome to read my private entries! Just email me at noworries121@yahoo.com and I'll give you the password.
from wildrosie :
Before Kaj, the best sex I ever had was with a guy who was about 4 inches. For some reason, he just kept hitting THE right place. Then again, Kaj does that regularly, he's almost twice the size. I agree with yeahimadork, TOO big HURTS! Too small often doesn't hit where it needs to (the G-spot). So personally, I'd say about 6-8 inches is best for this gal. Thanks heavens you didn't ask about facials again!~Rosie~
from yeahimadork :
Size, for me, doesn't matter. Unless we're talking like, an inch or two. The best sex I've EVER had was with a guy who was about 4 1/2 inches, and the worst sex I've ever had was with a guy who was huge (it was painful and unsatisfying). So go figure. I think it's all in how the guy works it, myself.
from wildrosie :
Of course we love you darlin'! And thank you for your advice, though I find it amusing that the only guy to respond told me dump him, and most of the women suggested that I discuss the issue! Go figure. ~Rosie~
from alainabelle :
I was wondering what it is about your diary that has attracted me, and I think you couldn't have put it better when you said: "With me, I will give you the truth, not sugar coat it". I think that's what I like most about you. Sometimes it's comforting to just hear things for what they are and not bother trying to make them pretty or PC. So I suppose I read you because I find you refreshing. And I thank you for that.
from yeahimadork :
Whew. I had to go look at the list of people who read me to make sure *I* wasn't the person you dropped since, you know, I need a man so damn bad. ;)
from marinka-mp :
So friends?
from marinka-mp :
LMAO so does this apply to me as well? I guess my only excuse is that i am too lazy. but you know what. feel free to leave me a note anytime i promise to repond to you.
from bluemeany :
A kilt, eh? With a well-timed breeze? That's very tempting, that is ... tell me more.
from yeahimadork :
Word. You can never have too much 80's music is RIGHT. And, if you do wear that kilt, you know who to email pictures, to, mister. :)
from blueavenue :
um oKAY, well you somehow made it SOUND like your birthday was toMOrrow, so SORRY to make you have to rePEAT yourself! =) and yeah, i'm all in on the bon jovi thing. we're halfway there, you know. but what was really the weirdness was when he played a plumber (or something similar) on ally mcbeal.
from blindessence :
Our birthdays are coming very quickly and you seem to already have a list of things that you want! lol.... I want nothing. Really... my 21st birthday and I want nothing. It's so true. I don't want anything. What is this world coming to? Oooh... I wish I was turning 16 so I could get 180,000 dollars as well. I'd love a small island. *barf*
from blueavenue :
is your birthday tomorrow??!! if so, have a great one! how old?? you don't have to tell me, i'm just really nosy. and i also LOVED ducktales. (whoo-oo!)
from summerroll :
I loved Duck Tales, and Tailspin, and Gummi Bears, and Darkwing Duck, and all those other cartoons from way back then. Kids today just don't know what they're missing. So I read a write-up on your Domino movie with Kiera Knightly and it looks cool. All the times you talked about it, I never realized it was based on a real person. I always thought it was a comic book. Silly me.
from icyjewel :
I've never rented porn in my life, either. I've always just ended up watching old stashes that ex-boyfriends have had. Oh yeah, and one called "Freakdick" at a bachelorette party. Talk about a good way to feel uncomfortable around the bride's mother!
from blueavenue :
bring it on with the spurs, but please don't wear tight wranglers. but you can still show your calvin kleins, though. if you want. heh. do you really love sexy cowgirls? it's possible i may qualify as one now that i'm back here. i have a hat, but no boots. that's next on my list.
from lost1985 :
yes, some body hair is good. Not of women of course-the less the better, right? haha. ooooh & I can't wait for the porn entry!! yeeeehaw!
from hissandtell :
Well, tie me up and tickle me and call me a whore, darling! And of course nuns don't masturbate with their big crosses, silly - they use these: http://www.divine-interventions.com/jackhammer.html - And yes, do let's bring back cowboy movies... Love, R xxx
from summerroll :
Glad you're back. Hope the Milkshake was good!
from ravengreen :
My Milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and damn right, it's better than yours.
from blindessence :
We've still got about a month to go!!! I don't know what I want to come more, the first day of school or my birthday! Either way, I'm actually excited for both, as much as I don't really want to go back to school.... it beats the shit out of working full time packaging pasta.
from bluemeany :
Oh, I just wanted to know what YOUR response to MY orgy comment was going to be -- you said you had refrained from posting it because I was in emotional anguish at the time. Anyway, I will probably continue with Diaryland when I go home, but I will need to buy a computer first. Ah well, that's what deployment money's for, right? Oh, and one other thing -- are you saying that you DON'T buy your sexual appliances/sexual-appliance-batteries at Sam's Club? You freak.
from blueavenue :
i remember what i was going to say a long time ago in my note. do you really have a wedding in denton? because as of tomorrow, i will be living approx. 15 minutes from there. WATCH out! k bye. p.s. i always grin when i see your *waves* thingee on my comments. hehe.
from lost1985 :
shaved pits? Well, I'd have to say it'd depend of the guy. If he does like to work out & has an awesome body, yea it's sexy. But, if he doesn't have such a nice body & just does it to do it...not so sexy. Do you see the difference? Would you go so far as to shave your legs? I've seen guys who do that too...it's not that bad. give me your thoughts
from bluemeany :
My opinion about the war? I agree that it's nifty to be rid of Sadaam, but I also think we should have just done it and gotten the fuck out. Except then, you know, there would be the guilt ... it's a hard call. I definitely think Dubya's retarded for trying to link this shit to 9/11, though -- how did he think he was gonna get away with that? "Um, Sadaam and Osama are secretly the SAME PERSON! Yeah, that's it!" Jeesh. Maybe I should just say "undecided."
from hissandtell :
Japanese rope bondage - um, yes, darling? Go check out Fetish Diva Midori's site: http://www.fetishdiva.com/ - she's awfully famous, you know. Love, R xxx
from lost1985 :
I'm tring to better myself. I'm tring to be happy. It's VERY hard to get past the negitive because it is what EVERYONE(not just me) focuses on. You know what I mean, right? Anyways, I didn't mean to be harsh either. I have enjoyed your journal for a really long time, what is it? 2 years now? Well, I'm sorry if what I said offended you, never ment it to. I guess I have a crazy way of saying, "hey, haven't talked to you in a while...just saying hi". Good luck w/everything, even your movie collection! ;) And sorry about all the other people who "bich" at you too. haha!
from blindessence :
I enjoyed that last entry!
from lost1985 :
okay, first off, I wasn't attacking. And the fact that you came back and attacked me sucks. I was just saying I dont have 1000 DVDs and that I think it's pretty crazy. Not crazy like, you're a retard for doing it, crazy like, wow-that's your passion cool. SHIT! yes, I do drink...I have a problem, it's call DEPRESSION. Thanks for SHOVING IT IN MY FACE! I'm working on it, one step at a time & it doesn't help when people that I try to talk to come back at give me a big SLAP IN THE FACE. I pay for my school, I pay for EVERYTHING on my own. I thought I was just making conversation. I wasn't tring to judge you but thank you for judging me.
from bluemeany :
I'm a bad person for not reading you more often. Possibly even a "hoar" or a "bich." But I [heart] you anyway because you kicked total closed-mind-fuck-brained-idiot ASS in that entry! And, I am now ready for your orgy response, whenever you remember what it was. ;)
from yeahimadork :
Dude. Whatthefuckever. Who gives a shit if you NEVER watch the goddamn movies you buy. It's no one's business how you spend your money, dear. People who read strangers' diaries and then take the time to tell them how to live their lives need to get a fucking life of their own. And, considering I HAVE been called a "hoar" by an emailer for my diary, I know what I'm talking about here. Stupid people are just that - stupid. Your diary is consistently insightful AND entertaining. Let the haters go fuck themselves. People with half a brain who read this know you're not some spoiled snotty asshole. Bah! I hate morons. If you do move to blogger, you must give me the link, my dear. :)
from lost1985 :
So, you own a lot of movies? I mean, I know it's nice to have them there for when you want to watch them but, how often do you really watch them? Is it worth all that money to invest in something that you dont take constant pleasure in? I know, I know, you do watch them from time to time & maybe you've seen them so many times that you've remembered quotes but, is it really worth it? Yes, I know they aren't the 1.99 price tagged ones from the gerocery store but, they do get expensive. I worked at a movie store and would watch people come in, grab a movie & say, "Is this any good? Aww hell, I'll just buy it." I wish I had that kind of money to spend on movies that I may only watch 2-3times a year. I guess if it's your passion, go for it. I know there are some movies that I love too but, I find that after I buy them, I watch them less. Maybe it's just because I know that they are sitting there in my entertainment stand collecting dust & that if I REALLY wanted to I could watch them. I dont know, I guess I'm just rambling. Best of luck with your collection. PS-why'd you take me off favorites? Am I not readable anymore? :(
from summerroll :
I thought Frequency was a great movie, very different. And I was one of those people crying at the end. I always thought that Donnie Darko was the opposite to It's A Wonderful Life: He got to see what life would be like had he lived and get's the realization right before he got crushed that life would be better for them all once he was dead. I would add The Lost Boys (my fave!), American History X, and Clueless.
from icyjewel :
I suppose I'd have to show up nude while carrying a purse. ;) Which would contain a spare change of clothing if the police officer demanded that I get dressed. Although I'm pretty positive the officer would rather I stay nude for his benefit.
from icyjewel :
Why, I wouldn't wear a thing to an orgy! Why bother with clothing? ;)
from ravengreen :
Hello, there is one and only thing you should wear to and orgy, and that is a toga.
from icyjewel :
I'm glad to hear your parents are ok. You want to know what's weird? I also have had recurring dreams that I will die in a car crash--at 24. I turn 24 this year. What are your dreams like?
from summerroll :
Dude! Are you me? Because from the time I can remember I have always thought I would die in a car crash. And when I say that to people, they look at me like I'm nuts. It's one of the reasons stupid people on the road and small accidents (like when that cyclist got hit) freak me out so much. Anyway, I'm glad that your parents are okay.
from wildrosie :
At least you are aware of what you could lose, and so you value it all the more. A split second took my dad, and all the money in the world can't replace him. I'm glad your parents are OK, and all we can do is deal with stuff when it happens. ~Rosie~
from yeahimadork :
Yeah, I learned the tiniest basic banner-making skills. They kind of suck, but I have them now, so I might as well use them (maybe if I bat my eyelashes at Hiss, she'll make me some, since hers are the best anyway). I am SO glad the mom and dad are ok. That is a scary and sobering thing to have to go through. It's weird when you hit that age in adulthood when you realize that something could happen and your parents could be gone just like that. So, when is the diary move happening? Oh - and Alaskan Malamutes - best.dogs.ever. I love them to death!
from blueavenue :
hey friend. i'm just glad to hear they're all right. i had a serious car accident scare about a year ago, and i still haven't full recovered. they are truly scary things. if i didn't believe in God before that, i sure did afterward. anyway, thinking about you/them. take care.
from bluemeany :
Hey, thanks so much for your note. I hope your parents are all right; car accidents can be scary shit.
from pinklady877 :
Oh my goodness. I hope everything is alright!!
from hissandtell :
Shit; how sobering. Sorry to hear it, darling. x
from blindessence :
Oh my god, Wilson Phillips!!! LOL!!!!! I SO like that song!
from summerroll :
This is on of the reasons I don't like pornos. Guys watch them and think that just because all the girls in the porno say they love it, then all the real girls must love it too. I've had a facial and it was unpleasant, especially since I had issues with bjs anyway (I'll tell you about that in a email). So no, I don't like them. I don't understand why other girls would and I do think it's very degrading.
from wildrosie :
OK, here's my take on it. The first time I give a guy a blowjob, I'll take a facial or a string of pearls, since I don't know what TYPE of cum he shoots. Some guys shoot buckets, others are really thick, and if a guy drinks a lot of beer it gets bitter. So, after I've determined if it's a type and quantity that I can swallow, then I do so. So facials and pearls have their place, but only if the guy is a spunkmeister. I don't enjoy it, but they seem to, and it's better than gagging to death. Now aren't you sorry you asked? ~Rosie~
from hissandtell :
Well, my spankable (and spankworthy) boy, I shall save my opinions for an email, I think. Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
Well, you know where I stand on the facials. I find them pretty repulsive, and about the least sexy thing ever. However, there are chicks who get off on it, and to that I say, to each his/her own. But I don't get it.
from blueavenue :
that entry was really funny. (facials.) i have to say i kind of agree with you. well, i guess i wouldn't feel degraded, really, but it's also not particularly appealing for any reason. i agree w/the swallowing part, too. happy day before friday!
from summerroll :
Two questions: When's the big move happening? and Why pecan crunch (ha)?
from hissandtell :
Oh. And there was I thinking "hedgehoggy" was a reference to being pricked. Or something. Love, R xxx
from blueavenue :
agh! had to stop reading mid-entry because i was afraid you were going to reveal something from the book, and i am still at the beginning on the chapter at the burrow! agh! no spoilers! but yeah, harry potter rules. i can't remember what i was going to say before that. damn. oh. you should read my best friend's newest entry. i think you would appreciate her graphicness. lol. you can find her link on my page or profile. =) peace.
from bluemeany :
So, yeah, one thing I would recommend as an orgy-rule: At least half of the male participants being heterosexual. Trust me on this one ;)

THe boy has been MIA the past couple weeks. Working hard on becoming a firefighter. The few times I've spoken to him in the past seven-weeks (like 4 times), he's sounded so stressed out. With those damn 12-hour ride alongs that he's had to do 3 times a week, he won't do anything the night before so that he's completely alert the entire time, and he's too tired to anything the night after. I just figure that once the ride alongs are over with and we get back to our regular schedule, I should be cured of all horniness. And it's hot (and humid) as hell down here too. A couple days ago we had a heat index of 107.

I don't think the Bobby & Whitney show is exploiting black people. Yeah there are things they do that are perceived to be unique to "black culture" but really aren't (check out a trailer park). I think in general that the people being exploited by most of these reality shows are the dumb ones.
from ravengreen :
Though I haven't seen the Bobby brown show...I'd Imagine it is comprable to Newly Weds, ....so why is the bobby brown one considered racist and Jessica Simpson is more popular than ever?
from blueavenue :
dude. sorry about your dad, hope all goes well tomorrow. bestfriendk thought your 'hell to the no' was real funny. so did i. and yes, thong wearers today DID experience a bit more trouble than usual due to the ass-hot heat. bobby brown's retarded.

I was just thinking about you because I was rewatching that Real Wolrd episode. I felt so bad for that girl. She's not ugly, but she's not a looker like the other 2 girls (who i don't even think are that cute, but i can see why guys would). She's just average. And the fact that she would say that she wasn't good enough for that asshole who was just playing her anyway is sad. On the subject of the vibrator, I have one, as well, as a very powerful bathtub faucet, and i have used both. But i don't know what it is with me, but they don't do anything for me. Yeah, I get there, but it only lasts for 5 minutes. With good sex, the entire body tingly feeling lasts, for me at least, for a couple days. But your comment definitely put a smile on my face, so thanks.

Haha... I love how that idiot misspelled that word and now my lunatic commentors and I have taken it over. God bless the stupid. :)

Oh, and patience, possum. All will be revealed in the fullness of time. Or, "Huh?" x

Here's something I learned through the week: you know that song, "I've Never Been to Me?" Well, it was written by two men with the Robert Shaw "Quint" character in mind. Then later they rewrote it from a woman's perspective. Well, a slutty woman's perspective, anyway. Bloody men. Love, R xxx

Re: Girls writing entries about wanting sex... It's equally interesting how many male diaries I've read where the guy is desprately wanting a special girl to cuddle with (as in not just sex). Are we expressing in our entries that which society says we shouldn't express?
from hissandtell :
Oh, you...you...you take that back about Our Heath! That boy's picture as Ned Kelly on my notice board in my office at work was THE only thing that kept me (borderline) sane when I was having my interminable little breakdown/s. And I'm telling you, many times I considered leaping out of my sea of heartbreak to pursue my delicious prey - bush or not - and bite him clean in half. Or something. Love, R xxx

I've said it before and I say it again, The Real World London was the very best season.

Someone beat me to it, but I was going to tell you to read the short story that "Shawshank Redemption" is based on. It's a book called "Different Seasons" and it also has "The Body", the story "Stand by Me" is based on, as well as one of my favorite (and chilling) stories, "Apt Pupil" (which was also made into a movie, but the story was much better).
from yeahimadork :
Shawshank Redemption... it's one of the finest films I think I've ever seen. What amazes me, is that those movies that are based on Stephen King stories (Shawshank, The Green Mile, and Stand by Me, etc.) are just wonderful movies that speak to the humanity in people, I think. And from Stephen King! I think you'll like Sling Blade. It's excellent as well. Have fun in Indiana, you randy boy. ;)
from summerroll :
Dude, I so almost bought that Debarge album (well it was in CD format) a couple months ago, but I went for the NIN instead. My fave Debarge song, along with "Rhythm of the Night", is "I Like It", which I think Fiddy cent just sampled in one of his songs. Did you know that El Debarge had a secret marriage with Janet Jackson when she was super young and she had to pick him up from crack houses in the middle of Compton at all hours of the morning. Just random trivia. On that note, I'm glad you had a good time with your girl.
from yeahimadork :
Removing cat hair, eye boogers, and drool is nothing. When you remove a stubborn turd from your woman's ass, THEN you can talk evolution. Just ask Bobby and Whitney. That's black love! Don't be ashamed of your love of the 80's dear. I am stuck in that decade right along with you. We rule.
from summerroll :
Have fun! Easy easy on the bites and scratches.
from hissandtell :
Awww. When you wrote about Australia and said, "Hands down gorgeous" I thought you were talking to me, telling me to quit calling out, "Come on over, hedgy mate, and I'll show you a good time!" Have a wonderful time with your sweetheart, darling. Kissy noises, R xxx

My frustration with diaryland: when you have super gold, you get to run a ton of banners. I have not ran ONE, yet they tell me I have no banner runs left. I emailed them about it FOUR MONTHS AGO the first time, and once a month since. I am tired of the server crashes. I am tired of it saying people have updated and I can't see the new entry (which drives me nuts, because I always feel like I have to read it RIGHT.NOW.). I am just tired of it. But it sucks, because I like the format of this site better than other blog sites, but I don't know. We'll see how I feel in a month. I might stay, I just won't pay for anything anymore... Blah. I'm cranky. :)
from yeahimadork :
I am pretty fed up with Diaryland myself. I have blog accounts set up on a couple other sites, so I think when my super gold (super MY ASS) runs out in 27.3256 days (as they keep reminding me), I am out. You and your magic penis!!! :)
from yeahimadork :
Oh, shit! I DID see that, and I DID laugh my ass off. That picture, my dear, was awesome. You kids and all your wackiness... ps - how great is your girl for answering my question like she did? You two really make me want to gag - and I mean that in the best possible way. ;)
from yeahimadork :
Dear, I have no clue what you're talking about. The fact that I am totally drunk from doing jello shots all day probably has something to do with it. Help a sister out here. What do I need to comment on??
from summerroll :
Glad you're feeling better. I've never had an D-land problems. But then again, there are only a couple people reading my diary anyway. I don't really feel pressure to be witty or exciting, cause I'm not, and I can express myself without wondering if other people will or won't enjoy it. It really does suck though when you give and give and all others do is take. Anyway, Enjoy your 4th. I'll be watching the annual bed races in the Grove with a couple of friends. Beware of bottle rockets near your ass (I'll tell you the story later).
from hissandtell :
Well, what an entry! A Town Bike with an expansively generous vagina, dates at fast-food joints, fireworks, anthropomorphism in canines and - gasp - the Three Stooges! So that's where you got your DL name - it's a spiky variation on the Porcupine of, "Soitenly, Portupine" fame! Enjoy those tassles, dear. Love, R xxx

Email me the password, please?!?! How can I start my shitty work day without a hedgehoggy update?
from yeahimadork :
Email me at Andria24@gmail.com. And I *totally* forgot to add my two cents about your blowjob entry the other night. Coming from a girl who loves giving them, I feel really bad for men who are with women who won't please them, especially since those are usually the women that require much oral gratification themselves. And, incidentally, if mine isn't perfect, it's pretty damn close!! ;)

And...and...I'm not one of the few? Why, you...you...BASTARD! Love, R xxx

I've never been to the Pawn Shop, but Gus has. He says it's neat (my word, not his). And I do believe he has danced in the school bus. Everyone I know that has hung out there has really liked it.

My life sucks!
from summerroll :
I cried during that Randy Quaid scene too. I thought I was the only one. I don't know how I missed the BJ entry, but I just read it. Very interesting. I never used to like giving them because the first guy I did it to was an asswipe. But now I do, but i think it's mainly because of the person.
from blindessence :
Hit you back?? WHAT! If you meant note wise, of course... here I am yo! If you mean email wise... I will totally get to it!! Isn't it strange how the emails get prolonged more so than the notes. Maybe its because getting into my email and sitting there writing it seems like it can take so much more time. Not that I don't enjoy writing... I clearly have a diary. But anywho... if you meant email... be on the look out... sometime soon, I hope!
from goingloopy :
I think that the two best sources for women to learn about BJ technique are gay men and porn. After taking lessons from both of those, I've never had a single complaint.
from hissandtell :
Well, honestly. You didn't think I'd leave that one alone, did you? Darling, if Oz blokes have fallen asleep during sex, it's because they've been going at it like Jack Russells chasing a rat up a drainpipe for so many hours, it's inevitable. This is just what we do here - we fuck like stoats for hours on end, we have naps, we bonk some more, we eat strawberries (or oysters) and drink champagne (or beer) and then we go right back to shagging. So there. And the perfect blowjob doesn't exist, you say? Why, how dare you! You deserve a good sharp nip for even suggesting such a thing! Much love, R xxx
from blindessence :
Oh... the blowjob discussion comes up. Of course, right after my sexual encounter!!! Of all the guys I've given some oral action to, the only one I enjoyed actually doing it to was the man in question, as you know. The others... blah (not that it's been many, mind you). But... although I enjoy giving it, I still feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. There was one time I knew I did an exceptionally good job at both the oral and the actual sex itself... oh but that was so long ago. How I've started to suck (but just not well) since then... the trials... the tribulations... of me.
from summerroll :
The new Real World sucks major ass. I love how everyone was so obviously trying to out do previous seasons. "Oh look at me, I bend over in the kitchen while wearing my underwear." "Oh look at us, it's only the first day and we're all taking a shower together. Oh shut the fuck up. They are all dumbasses.

Oh, how I love "Red Violin"! (And being naked in the kitchen and unashamed of how much I enjoy sex, too.) Now come on now, darling, let's hear more about you and custard... Love, R xxx

from blindessence :
Yes, I did get your email. I got it very early Sunday morning, but I was too drunk to reply. I will though, very soon!
from ravengreen :
mmm actually there are several naughty ways to use the word "bottom". Immediately I thuoght of the gay reference, as in, "He is such a bottom". But also, you can make a sentace such as, "I want to lick you from top to bottom".

I totally knew that line... "relax, don't do it":... HELLO... Frankie Goes to Hollywood... HELLO... IM so drunk.. again, sorry.
from blueavenue :
yes i did! i emailed you back! didn't i? didn't you get it?
from blindessence :
Well... I kind of am (in my own opinion) retarded for thinking of this guy, Mike, the way that I am. If you read way back in my diary... Beginning around January 2004 until maybe around August 2004, you'll see why it's not a great idea to be thinking these thoughts. Of course, things between him and I have surpassed August and there are other entries about him, but the ones between January and August 2004 are the ones that hit home. I am a fruitcake for being in love with him like I am. A pure fruitcake. And I'll tell you this, I HATE fruitcake. And... you can email me all you want. Also, I feel my birthday is a million years away... but who wants to turn 21 anyway?
from blindessence :
Oh how I ♥ that Belinda CD... and I know it's totally 1987 (pretty sure) and I know I was 3 years old, but one can still rep the good time 80s. I LOVE the 80s... Okay... maybe not so much the 80s themselves, but defintely the music. Loving the retro 80s for "shizzle yo".

WoW! I see we got ourselves a V. Mars convert. Just wanted to let you know that they're showing it Tuesday and Wednesday nights this summer. By the way, how's that "The Washingtonian" book (I think that's the name). I read an article about it a few weeks ago and wanted to get it, but since they closed down my Borders (it was 1.5 blocks from my house), I refuse to drive to Barnes and Noble.
from yeahimadork :
Dude. I never watched that Veronica Mars show you're always yakking about, but my Tivo picked it up last night. Luckily, it was the pilot episode... and I have to tell you, I am hooked on that show now!! I have set my tivo to record it every time it's on so I can catch up on all the episodes I missed (which, is, um, ALL OF THEM). I wonder why I never paid attention to you raving about it all the time in your diary? I am so clueless sometimes, I swear. :)

American Anthem!!! Only one of the Greatest. Movies. Ever. Don't tell anyone, but I even learned the last floor routine of the blonde's and just inserted round offs where she did all those fancy flips that I couldn't do.

damn, you freaking CRACK me UP! thanks for the nice comment, also. yay! seriously, no chance in readers being bored by your diary. and i promise to never talk about how badly i want a boyfriend, etc. (i can promise that quite easily, as that's not even a thought i have, much less something i'd actually SAY out LOUD/write.) some people. hmnph.
from blindessence :
I totally have that CD by Belinda Carlise!
from summerroll :
"Into the Grove" is one of those songs that when I hear it on my car radio, I go into full on dance and sing mode, and then I get strange looks from the people in the cars beside me or the people riding in my car. I love the "Immaculate Collection", but my fave Maddona album is "Bedtime Stories" because it has a real funk/smooth jazz undertone. I don't think I've ever heard your first pick before though.
from goingloopy :
Thanks for adding me! I will check out your diary very soon...as soon as I catch up from being out of town for four days. (This will happen as soon as I am back at work, because my job is totally boring.) :)

PS - I totally forgot! Boys of Summer is probably of my top ten favorite songs EVER. I love it. We rule.

I was going to comment on your entry this morning, but well, a sex toy purchasing emergency came up, and, well... a girl's got to have her priorities in order. I found your answers interesting. Even though I, ahem, don't think Best Of and/or Greatest Hits collections should count, I worship Madonna, and accept your answer (though I think Like A Prayer is hands down her best album). I also think she has done some great music post-Kabbalah (Ray of Light and Music... Her last one kind of sucked ass, though). As for the Golden Earring choice - it was surpising, but nothing to scoff at. If you had said you wanted Air Supply to be one of the three, then I might have to point and laugh. Just kidding. Maybe. :) Ps... I am an attention whore, you know. You have mentioned me in your diary a couple times, but no link! What's up with that? ;)

As much as I may want to, I wouldn't do that. But, I don't even know what he's actually thinking about the whole situation yet because we haven't talked. He could be telling people for many reasons, and I don't know why yet.. hopefully I find out soon though!
from yeahimadork :
Dear, stop being a poopy pants and being down about yourself. How can you bonk your girl mercilessly if you're not feeling well? Enjoy yourself this weekend. Also, did you see my entry today? Because I was really curious what you would choose as the only three records you could keep if you were forced to choose (I don't think I recall you mentioning music much). But I know you've got *other* things occupying your mind today. ;)

from hissandtell :
Just dropped in to discuss Michael Jackson's penis for a moment, darling. From what I can recall of the civil case in 1993 when such things were photographed and dissected at, um, length, his bottom and penis do indeed exhibit certain "splotches" of colour similar to his face, which makes them highly identifiable in a line-up. The boy in the '93 case was able to say where the splotches were when Jackson's penis was erect (which kind of strikes me as a miracle in itself), how much pubic hair he had, and reveal that he was - gasp - circumcised. And I'm just guessing here, but I'd reckon that's more than either of his ex-wives would be able to attest to. Hope you feel more upbeat soon, doll. Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
I wish I had your email address so I didn't have to ramble in your notes. First, I know EXACTLY how you feel. These sort of episodes hit me hard and fast, and I am nearly helpless to do anything but feel like shit for a few days until it passes (which it always does,thanfully). And, secondly, I can only speak for myself, but I like reading your diary because it's always entertaining. Most people can't come up with something interesting on a daily basis, not to mention how awesome it is to see a man elaborate on his feelings about his girlfriend so consistently the way you do with Sara. Try not to be so hard on yourself. You'll get out of your hole soon. :)

I almost bought the Season 1 DVD a couple months ago but decided to buy several CDs instead of 1 DVD. Part of the reason it took me so long to get a DVD player (I just got one in Feb) is because, like you said, DVDs themselves are so damn expensive.

Ok, I have to tell what a sissy girl I am. In your last entry, as soon as I saw the word "haunted," I quit reading.

from summerroll :
I used to see ghosts all the time in the house I grew up in. And so did my mom and her brothers when they were younger. At that time I was living with Grandma, and she was a nurse, which I meant I was home alone a lot, and I would always see these shadowy creatures creeping down the hallways; then I would avoid said hallways until someone got home. And, up until a few years ago, I would always here my name being whispered, and there would either be no one around or if someone was around, they didn't know what I was talking about. It was creeeeepy. Anyway. How's the book?
from icyjewel :
I believe that the apartment I last lived in was haunted, too. Did you ask your g-friend if she has ever seen/heard anything? It would make for a great reason to cuddle together in bed. (wait...like you need a reason in the first place!)

I hate those gangsta white kids. They're crawling around my town, it's ridiculous. We don't even have a ghetto in the 'Noke, and I remember being on the bus one day when I was in 10th grade, there was this kid Justin (and I don't think you can get anymore non-gangsta than JUSTIN) who wore his do-rags and gold chains and talked shit all day. I couldn't stand it anymore and called him out on his bullshit in front of everybody: "JUSTIN! You are WHITE. You go to CAVE SPRING HIGH SCHOOL! (notoriously snobby/preppy) You live in SOUTHWEAT COUNTY. You are NOT GANGSTA, so get your head out of your ass!" I succeeded in embarrassing him in front of a whole bus load of kids. Ha ha. Have a great day!

Hi doll; thanks for the note. Yes, I knew about the Search for a Lead Singer contest - when I was BrisVegas last year, Michael's best mate (who's a friend of a friend and rang me up at home once; I wrote about it at http://hissandtell.diaryland.com/040402_47.html, and then we went out for lunch a couple of times) was denouncing it very loudly as an appallingly dreadful thing to do. I would only hope the band's criteria includes finding someone with very tight leather pants but NO belt to be tempted by when times get tough on tour and motel-room autoeroticism seems like a good idea to pass the time. Love, R xxx

Thanks for the link to the pictures! You guys are h-o-t together, whoo! Also, now I want to go see Debbie Does Dallas again, just for kicks. You forgot another big "hair" thing from 70's porno - men's moustaches! They all have them. I think it was the law back then. Good times.

from ravengreen :
Okay, I think people are confused over this whole bukkake thing. Bukkake is not a facial. Bukkake is something that originated in the japanese brothels. It is basicly a big circle jerk where all these guys go into a room....they sit around and jerk off....each one of them cumming into a cup....I'm pretty sure it's the same cup....and then they give it to a girl to drink while they watch. ...That is degrading in my book. And gross. Who knows where those guys have been or what they might have.
from yeahimadork :
I was interested in your take on the whole "facial/bukkake" thing. I don't think it's degrading, it just doesn't turn me on. It's the same thing, everytime. And, like you, I am totally turned off by the extremes they go to now. There is nothing arousing (to me, at least) about a chick with two cocks in the back, one in the front, and one in her mouth. Ouch.

You're so right about the lack of common sense nowadays. I work with high school kids and everday, I am not only amazed, but also saddened, at the realization that most of them are just plain dumb. Don't get me wrong, they are intelligent kids, but common sense they don't have. And when you try to teach them life lessons, it goes in one ear and out the other; I'm suprisesd it doesn't get lost in the empty space between. I've been thinking about the "Just one the Guys" movie all weekend; when you watch the DVD look out for the scene where the girl and her brother have just gotten home from a long day of trying to cover her identity. She's wearing a white tank and miniskirt set. They collapse on the stairs because they are soooo tired and they start to crawl up them. At that point, the actor playing her brother totally looks up her skirt and then tries to cover it. I laugh everytime I see that. For a next read, check out "The Sexual Life of Catherine M.". It's pretty insane, but it's translated from French so the sentences seem to run on and on forever and don't flow very well. This is ridiculously long, but one more thing: Your thought on V. Mars???

Ok. First, don't stop writing about Sara. This is your diary, dear... write about whatever the hell you want. And, is it wrong that I am a 31 year old woman and I may be crying if Justin Timberlake is getting married? He just has no idea all the dirty dirty things I could do to him...
from evildilara :
Yeah, did I miss something too? i.e. the pictures?!
from soverycherry :
Where are these elusive pictures? Did I miss something? I wanna see!

this is a new member to the diary world and i noticed that you offerd your password for suicide girls so i would love it if you would aid my survival, Quinnes my fav Tommymp32003@yahoo.com
from hissandtell :
Well, of course. YUM, darling! I'll get back today to leave a note at your lovely paramour's site. And do stop trembling please, dear. You don't want to get too excited and accidentally spill something, you know. Love, R xxx

If seeing the world truthfully--seeing what's fucked-up and what's not--is "cynical" then count me in too!!
from yeahimadork :
I think Nick Carter got a DUI *because* he's still a fucking Backstreet Boy at 30 (oh, how I wish they would all just disappear - except Justin Timberlake, because he's hot, dammit). Also, when you're snapping pics of the dog on the fire truck, you can use the line from Lost In Translation: "more intensity!"
from hissandtell :
Well? Do I have to come over there and beat it out of you? (hissandtell@diaryland.com) - and smooch, you prickly thing. Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
Yeah, I totally forgot to add my clever comment about Tom & Katie Holmes: fucking gross. I don't know what's worse... him dating a girl who could be his daughter, or her dating a scientologist. That is all kinds of EEEWWW. Also, if I didn't see those "so cute I could gouge my own eyes out" pics of you and your lady, I might just have to love you for having Showgirls and Just One of the Guys on DVD. It's so hard being as awesome as we are. :) ps! I have another porn review coming soon (no pun intended).
from summerroll :
Just One of the Guys - is that the one where the girl wants to win a journalism award, but she won't get nominated at her school, so she passes herself off as a guy at the high school on the other side of town only to fall in love with another guy who then mistakes her for gay? And Showgirls, gawd how I love that movie; it's so bad it's good. I always say the Versace line to people and they look at me like I'm crazy. What else can I say: Marky mark and 21 Jump Street; love them both so dearly. Actually, I have claimed Marky Mark as my husband for many years.
from yeahimadork :
Ok, whose ass do I have to kiss to see the pictures? Hook a sister up, will ya? ;)
from juli-anne :
Hey, this is Frisky...no more frisy-girl because I don't have the time for both! Anyway, I'd love to have the link to your pictures. That would be rad. I also want to hear some stories about your shenanigans. (Yup, still frisky even though I don't write about it anymore)
from pinklady877 :
I want to see the pictures! Email me the link :)
from hissandtell :
Ooops - due to a faulty (or just damned lazy) synapse lingering on a word from a previous paragraph, I read your sentence as, "It seems that people are seeing The Virgin Mary in a tunnel thanks to cum stains". And do you mean there are some people out there who don't like being scratched and bitten? Well, goodness. Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
Well, it sounds like you had quite an adventure beneath the stairs. Sara is a lucky girl. Or... judging from your reaction to her oral capabilities, perhaps YOU are the lucky one ;)
from blueavenue :
lol. i am in total agreement with your list of castaways from the planet earth. except ashlee simpson, cuz like, she's a REALLY talented musician, like, you KNOW?
from hissandtell :
Re: your list - very amusing (check!) Re: your strange involuntary noises - a little scary. Re: the amazing dexterity of your boy-bits - hellishly impressive! I adore your writing, darling; do enjoy the big bites and come back to us bruised all over and with all your shirts intact. Love, R xxx

that entry made me want to pin you down and kiss you all over.
from hissandtell :
Gracious. Where would I even begin to answer a question like that, darling? Have a wander through these sites (http://www.ratemycock.com/ and http://www.ratemypecker.com/) if you haven't already, and let me ponder how best to, um, tackle this rather, um, hard teaser of yours. Love, R xxx
from soverycherry :
I totally can see G-Dub using crayons to write with. Maybe one day he'll graduate to colored pencils. Also, I HATE Dr Phil. HATE him. And oddly enough, my sister and I were both on the ellipticals yesterday and we were talking about pancakes, reading out loud all the gay motivational posters in the room but substituting the word pancakes in there somewhere. We are so weird.
from yeahimadork :
Hey. The new Garbage album is awesome. Shirley Manson is the coolest female (by far) in rock music. And, don't feel like a pervy guy because you think about sex a lot. I am a girl, and I pretty much think about it ALL THE TIME.
from hissandtell :
A friend of mine who used to work in a porn store met Jenna when she'd drop in to flog her films. He said she was very sweet and that her husband had a nice cock. Love, R xxx
from summerroll :
I never read the book Riki-tiki Tavi, but I distictly remember seeing the movie several times when I was 7 or 8 on Nicklelodeon, back when Nickelodeon was quality, and I loved it, and I would always watch it whenever it came on. Anyway, you can email me at summerroll3@yahoo.com if you so choose.
from summerroll :
I'm gonna have to call you Riki-tiki from now on, or maybe just Riki for short. I absolutely LOVE Garbage. For me, it's Shirly Manson's voice, so strong and powerful and smoky, and sexy. My fave songs are "Push It" and "I'm only Happy when it Rains." You'll have to let me know how the new album is........My theory as to who killed Lilly on V Mars. Right now, I'm not really sure. At first, I thought it was the Momma Kane, that maybe she thought she was killing Veronica and ended up killing Lilly instead or Lilly threatened her with soemthing and she had to take her out. Then I started thinking it was Duncan, but when the show started dropping all these clues about Duncan, I stopped believeing it was him. I definitely DON'T think that it is was Logan, although I suspect that Logan either raped Veronica or at least set her up to be raped. There are just too many clues and too many suspects and I'm getting confused about what are definitely facts and what are just suspicions. Too much to keep it all straight in my tiny little brain. So for this reason, I'm sticking with my Mom theory. I usually guess right about these things (except for in "Identity" when I initally guessed the killer correctly at the beginning and halfway through the movie I let my friend and the writers convince me otherwise - won't make that mistake again). I guess we'll just have to bide our time for 4 more weeks, assuming there won't be anymore breaks. What are your theories?
from pinklady877 :
Stop dissing sorority girls, dammit! You're hurting my feelings. ;D
from yeahimadork :
I wasn't dissing Poison. I am ALL ABOUT the hair metal. Just not *everyone* can be as cool as us. :)
from summerroll :
What a great V Mars episode last night. It had me yelling and jumping up-and-down on my couch while me kitty just cocked her head in my direction as to say, "What the hell is wrong with you, you crazy bitch." She gives me that look often. In regards to Logan vs. the Deputy. I'm not sure. I like the Deputy. He's soooo cute and adorable and you can tell that he's really into Veronica and would do anything for her. An overall nice guy/nice bf. But Logan; I love the dynamics of him as a character. He has that evil/mean streak and at the same time, you can see the hurt and the pain that he experiences from his abusive father and the death of Lilly (and his mom? still not sure if she's dead). And there's also the protector in him where he'll do anything for the people he loves. So my choice...I think I'll have to go for Logan, the bad boy who only reveals his softer sides at certain moments to certain people. Plus, that kiss he laid on Veronica was fucking hot as hell.
from hissandtell :
Yes; yes I was wondering what you did with girly-juices, in fact. My other guess was, "Make a nourishing stock for risotto". Much love, R xxx
from summerroll :
In Miami, the DFEs are endless. I often wouldn't dance when I went out unless I had a guy friend with me. They come up to you, grab your waist, and start grinding on you. Not even dancing; just bumping their crotch and their haradon into your ass And the bold ones will start moving their hands towards your crotch. I usually end up pushing them away and threatening to kick their asses, then they call me a bitch and walk a way to find the next victim to dry-fuck on the dancefloor. Animals.
from hissandtell :
Hi again, darling - thanks for your note. Yes, you've caught me out - I am Australian. In fact, I'm so Australian that I remember going off to see INXS at small venues and pubs when I was a mere pup (and I thought they were complete shite). But I'm fabulously intrigued by the whole Paula nightmare and Michael's tragic (though rather inevitable) fate. And DFEs? The first one I encountered was from my Art teacher whom I was dancing with when I was 15. (There've been many since then, of course - DFEs, I mean, not Art teachers: but a few of them, too.) I guess it depends on both the DFE itself and how well you know someone (or want to), but my response has always been either to pretend to ignore it, or to act on it decisively! Love, R xxx
from soverycherry :
The only DFEs I have ever come in contact with were at junior high school dances. Talk about AWKWARD. Oh, and those of people I have been dating at time, while drunk, but those are usually just funny.
from blueavenue :
hahaha. you're funny. when did you add me to your list? i didn't even notice. but hey! thanks! have a great week playing with your sidekick (no pun intended).
from yeahimadork :
I do not <3 the elliptical. That machine is a device of torture. The first time I did it, I was SO sore! I guess that's a sign of its effectiveness. Also, about the checkerboard Vans, look online. There's tons of sites to find them.
from lostincoma :
I'm not quite sure if the elliptical is what I used or not...it's the one where your feet move in stair-climbing motions...like a stair-climber, I guess, lol. In any case, 20 minutes of that, followed by 30 minutes on the bike, was a bitch. I'm sure I'll work myself up to it.
from yeahimadork :
Hey again :) I just read your entry, and thought I put you on my favorites list... I am doing it RIGHT NOW. How could I not put someone who writes a whole entries about vaginas on my list? ;)
from summerroll :
Another Veronica Mars Fan. Yay!! I always try to convince people to watch, but they just aren't interested, even though I know that if they caught just one episode, they'd be hooked. Logan and Veronica are my favorite characters too. This show just keeps getting better and I can't wait till the big reveals at the end.
from soverycherry :
What are reverse sit-ups? Also, I think Chad Michael Murray is cute, but only like him on a shallow level. I heard he's a HUGE dick in real life. I'm not a fan. And I don't really have to say much on the subject of vaginas. Mine might as well be sewn shut.
from hissandtell :
So you pimped me? Well, thanks, darling - I think. And I'm relieved to hear you deserved your spankings, and that they weren't just handed out arbitrarily. We always appreciate things so much more when they're earned, don't you think? Love, R xxx
from somuchsugar :
(p.s. feel free to erase my link below; i apologize for stretching out the page so. must watch my diet i guess.)
from somuchsugar :
damn those elliptical machines! i have a deeply complicated hate-hate relationship with them myself. but enough about sweaty balls. more 'ode to the vagina' please.
from soverycherry :
The elliptical machine! That's my bitch, right there. Or, maybe I should say, I am its bitch, rather. It killed me the first couple times I used it, and that was only on resistance level one! Now I do 28 minutes, alternating between four minutes of resistance one and four minutes of resistance eight. And only recently have I been able to do this without feeling like I'm going to die about halfway through. I have a love/hate relationship with that thing.
from hissandtell :
Hey, I actually thought "Hutchincense" was an excellent pun, darling, especially as Paula Yates accidentally set fire to their home with a joss-stick once while they were both having hot BDSM sex with leather bondage suits, strap-ons, prostitutes, oysters and gerbils! Love, R xxx
from yeahimadork :
Hey, just wanted to say thanks for the add... I have been reading some of your past entries, and I have been laughing out loud like a total retard. I will be back to read more... :)
from hissandtell :
Hi - thanks so much for finding me and drawing my attention to your diary; I'm sitting here chuckling (over the funny bits, at least) while I'm reading some of your recent entries. (You mentioned M Hutchence in Prague, which is rather a good thing too, and other cultural references I can actually understand despite my advancing years.) I must say it was a relief to finally read some thoughts about the pope that parallel my own. Oh, and I'm looking forward to the photographs and the strawberry lube close-ups... Love, R xxx
from somuchsugar :
Just a quick note - thought you would find this article interesting re: dangerous legacy of Pope: http://books.guardian.co.uk/reviews/politicsphilosophyandsociety/0,6121,1411106,00.html
from somuchsugar :
I agree, we at DiaryLand are a weird bunch! Drink to that. Good points all the way around on the environment being blasted by Bush and other morons. i'm enjoying your diary - you are indeed a ladies' ladies man. hope you have a good trip - looking forward to updates upon your return!
from dope-slave :
No way dude, Legend of Zelda was and still is WAY overrated. There's no real story to it! Link, go get the damn triforce pieces and put it back together, go stop Gannon, blahblahblah. It's that every fucking time. Final Fantasy VI was the best, with Soul Blazer second. The worst RPG ever is Lagoon. That game is a piece of shit.
from lostincoma :
Having finished watching The Incredibles today, I have to say I was disappointed with it. I was under the assumption it was a kids movie, but after seeing it, you realize it's clearly not. There's close to nothing in the whole movie that would appeal to kids and keep them watching, and the sexual humor is a bit much (then again, every 'kids' movie seems to have that these days). Target audience aside, I thought it was too structurally disorganized. Or at least the setup was. You don't totally pick up on the premise of the movie until later into it. It all makes me feel like we can't blame kids for being so fucked-up these days, because they don't even have the good quality entertainment like you and I did...and before I ramble further, I'll stop. To let you know, I just found your e-mail in my junk folder. *scratches head* I don't know if I accidentally moved it there or it went straight there on its own, but my apologies for not replying all this time. I'll try to get to it tomorrow, before I leave to go down south. Other than that, I'm happy for you and Sara. You better start getting your ass down there more often to see her, a two-hour drive is nothing for us Texans! Take care.

from lostincoma :
I fucking adored Claire Danes in My So Called Life. It's a mystery why shows like that and Freaks and Geeks get cancelled...all in an attempt to sugarcoat the entire realm of TV and leave no stone unturned. Loved her in Romeo and Juliet too, but I won't get into that, as most everyone seems to hate that movie. Anyway, just wanted to let you know, that was probably me making your site meter explode. What can I say, I had a lot to catch up on. :)

Donnie Darko is one of the most under-rated movies of all time. I saw it a few years ago and immediately fell in love with it. The ideas brought forth in the movie are really something else, aren't they? And now every time I hear "Notorious," I think SPARKLE MOTION! Ha. And I have also been known to throw out "Suck a fuck!" in general conversation. I love that damn movie. I hope you have a great weekend!
from soverycherry :
I feel so honored to be quoted in your diary. Wow. Also, I saw that ep of Super Sweet 16 too. That's rigoddamndiculous - and you're right, he looked like an idiot with his collar popped. It's not the 80's, son, and you are not Kanye West, like you said. It makes me ill. Did you see where he was all, "This is a $400,000 car!" as he drove down the street in it? And also, he totally had to buy those girls off to come to his party. No, I'm not bitter. :)

Naked karaoke? What the hell, man? Who would ever even think to come up with something like that? Also, now I totally want to hear "1979," thanks a lot. I love that song.

I have a Kodak EasyShare CX7300. (no idea what those last numbers mean, they are just on the camera) It is a 3.2 megapixel. It's not too fancy and my first digital camera. I'm just learning to use it and it's relatively inexpensive. You can also get one of those printers that connect directly to the camera and print pictures out easily. I think my boyfriend said he only paid about $150 for it. It's perfect for someone who is just learning how to use one of these.
from frisky-girl :
Mmmm...great entry!

I ask to give him head pop in my space explorer and give him the control....after a couple of minutes he is more then happy to induldge me in a little love making;) hay did you check out those books or think you might be interested in them?
from omnipre5ence :
Hey, what's new?
from smile4onlyu :
hello havent talked to you in a while but i had some good books to recommend to you...the first one is called Angels and Demons and it is by Dan Brown, long book but its a fast read...it goes into religion and science and there is alot of history but it is so...good. You can ask me more about it if you want, even if it doesnt sound like it would interest you you should definitly check it out. Another one is Protect and Defend by richard north patterson which i am currently reading. It is about the US government and the protection of life law. Here is what it says on the back cover: On a cold day in January, President-elect Kerry Kilcannon takes the oath of office-and within days makes his first, most important move: appointing a new chief justice of the Supreme Court. Kilcannon's choice is a female judge with a brilliant record. And a secret. While the senate spars over Caroline Master's nomination, an inflammatory abortion rights case is making its way toward the judge-and will explode into the headlines. Suddenly, the most divisive issue in AMerica turns the president's nomination into an all out war. And from the Judge Masters to a conservative, war-hero senator facing a crisis of conscience and a fifteen-year-old girl battling for her future, no one will be safe. Protect and Defend takes us on a riveting journey between what is legal, what is right...and the price of finally knowing the difference. Sorry so long but I just thought I would share. Hope your doing well.

well, for me i originally got on dland because i am a faster typer than a writer. i'm a huge perfectionist on my handwriting, so if i need to get something out, i'll type it since it's easier. then the whole diary began. i enjoy the fact that my diary is locked because i can pick and choose who i let in to read my thoughts, because it's a diary and very private. i like that people email me and tell me what they think and give me advice and stuff. mostly everyone on my favorites list i've never met before, so it's kind of like an unbiased opinion. :)

Re: peeing in a cup. They do provide you with latex gloves to put on, to protect your delicate skin from pee. I guess. Anyway, I guess if you had to pee in a cup every single week for weeks on end, you'd get pretty good at aiming, as I have. Also, I read that about The Daily Show book and WalMart yesterday morning. What a joke.
from soverycherry :
You know, I think the worst and most inappropriate usage of God wanting somebody to do something was on an episode of Real Sex I saw once. They were covering a Miss Nude World pageant, and one of the contestants actually said that she didn't worry about winning because she had prayed to God about it the night before and she was sure he would come through. Right. As I said then, I'm sure that was totally number one on God's list of priorities - let Miss Montana win Miss Nude World. Right-o.

alot of people can relate to the feeling of depression, of course we all have different lives so we get the blues for diff reasons, and alot of people confuse depression with sadness. it is much better to feel sad then to be depressed. and you don't need to grow up, if you enjoy life and are mature enough to take it on it's fine.

Actually I'm Pro-Cheap movies. I've gotten some favorites from the 5.50 bins like Before Sunrise, and Mary Reiliy and Music from another room, Hell, lately I've been very tempted to throw 5.50 at Airheads. I just get annoyed when people buy bad movies for the wrong reasons.

Well hot damn, I'm all caught up, finally. Your T-shirts amuse me; it seems that the sayings on guys' shirts are more interesting than the stupid "I love Justin" sayings on girls'. That's why I stick to plain shirts. Saw this guy in the mall once wearing a shirt that said "I have the dick, so I make the rules." It didn't bother me that much, though I was slightly irked that he was with what looked like his little brother. Not the best way to be a role model, no?

But regarding The Lost Boys, all I've seen of it was when I was at my babysitters one night when I was very young, and I emerged go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and they were watching it. All I saw was the maggoty chinese food and I've been sort of turned off ever since. Is it worth the watch without the nostalgic element? Being a Vampire freak I've always wondered about it.

your billy joel comment cracked my ass up. i totally agree with you about the football player that died in iraq, and it's really irked me to see all the coverage of him on tv. they're acting as if he's the first person to die in iraq, almost neglecting the fact that hundreds have died before him and are still dying as we speak, who also made sacrifices. oh, and you should start off your entries with a "t-shirt of the day" sort of thing, where you say what's on your t-shirt, lol.

As an alternative to Blockbuster my flatmate and I love our netflix account. We opted to not have cable and split the cost of the netflix account between us. We watch alot of movies and this works for us. (We really get our money's worth). Late fees aren't an issue....but the longer you take to send something back the longer it will take to get something so we send the back as soon as possible. We pay a flat fee of $20 have been receiving around 12-13 a month so that comes out to an average of $1.50 per movie. The only problem is the down time, having to speculate 3 days in advance what you would like to watch.
from brittanya :
Is that all you've got? How dissapointing. I thought maybe you might grow some balls and actually leave me a note on my own notes page. Instead you have to dedicate an entry to me in your diary so you'll look like a badass to everyone that reads you. You cant even come up with your own ideas, istead you had to dissect every point I make. I understand that you did that because you are insecure and you felt like you needed to stick up for yourself. GO YOU! I wish you luck in finding self esteem. Maybe your calvin clein boxers make you feel respectable but I lost respect for you a long, long time ago. Yes, its obvious you are not right in the head and you honestly scare the shit out of me because you know the town I live in. You are definite stalker materiel and not only do I think that, so does Miss-Edith. I swear to god if you ever tried to do anything to me I'd scratch your fucking eyeballs out. Come on Mike! Write me a note in my fuckin' notes page! I fuckin' dare you, just like a little third grade girl would!
from lostincoma :
i'm kind of the reciprocal of the people you hate; i kept you on my faves list and stopped reading you, lol. but i'm all caught up now on the life of mike and have a couple of random comments. first of all, why on earth was jenna malone not mentioned anywhere on your top 20 women list?! i know you like her, and i agree that she's a great actress, as well as a smart person that chooses good roles. also, she's a bit young, but i'd throw in evan rachel wood, too. she used to be on 'once and again' and was in the movie 'thirteen', and, like jenna, i think she chooses great roles and isn't your typical dumb teen actress. moving on...my spanish grade is mucho mierda these days. and FYI, the title of my e-mail said 'where is the bathroom'...so don't worry, you weren't missing out on anything relevant, lol. good rant you had there...this fight's definitely gettin' ugly. i think i'll sit and watch from the sidelines, rather than implement my two cents. and...does my brain deceive me or did i read that you bought an LP shirt?!
from brittanya :
Newsflash: you are twenty six years old, you don't have a job, and you live with your parents. You need to grow up and get a life of your own. Thanks for the entry about me, you sure didn't let me down. Yes I know you have a website tracking program because you have mentioned in your diary numerous times how people have come across your diary with the keywords "juices dripping off twat" or something disgusting like that. You title your entries this way so you will get hits on your website. You crave attention and when you don't get it you get angry. I dropped you from my favorites list because your life is boring and you write about the same things continuously. That is prounouced cun-ten-u-us-lee. You write about the gym, your parents yorkies, your past love lives, how much you love vaginas, and movies. Pretty much every entry is guaranteed to have one of those topics. I went back to read your diary because I knew you would see my ip address in your tracking program. You use sitemeter by the way. I know that because I have the mentality of a five year old. I knew you would eventually write about me because I know you get pissed off when people drop you and then go back and read you. So I've just been waiting for your retort. It was lovely, really. And you, you dumb motherfucker, do not use the english language correctly either. You use the phrase "to which" in ways that are completely incorrect. I tried to think up an example but you use the phrase so blatantly wrong I cant come up with anything. It is annoying as hell though, and you repeatedly do it. And another thing, I was never offended by anything you ever said in your diary. I kept reading as long as I did because it was funny to me, funny to read how pathetic and sad your life was. You are a joke, a loser, a conformist. die.
from stunnedblond :
Well hello darlin'! I owe you a long email after that one you sent me...it brought a smile to my face. But for now I am off to a pimps and ho's party so I just wanted to let you know that it's on the way...tomorrow I will send one. By the way..i wasn't lying..I really am a brunette..i will explain my hair color and even that one touchy subject tomorrow so that it will all be clear. By the way...don't be nervous about E...she probably knows you are a lil' hottie and wants a piece of hedgie! *hugs and kisses* (as always)

So, Mike, I guess I probably missed this somewhere along the line (my poor brain can't keep up) but.. where's your dad?? You keep saying your mom's gone, came home, left again. You and your brother are home alone. Your dad's computer room is quiet. I've been assuming he's with your mom even tho you don't mention him. Is that right?

from lostincoma :
fear not, for i am here! *flys in with magic cape on* i enjoyed catching up on your entries, it's nice to see that you're happy with your new girlfriend, she seems really cool too. about the mother-daughter relationship...they're generally really close, but they fight like NONE other. trust me, this is the case most of the time. i love my mom to death, but i will be fighting with her 'till the day she dies, lol. funny that you put a dent in your car, since nick (MY nick, not your gay one, lol) got in a little accident last week as well. although his actually involved another car and it wasn't his fault, lol. anyway, i have loads more to say, so i figure an e-mail would be more appropriate. i have a huge, motherfucking english test thursday though, so don't expect it before then. :)

On your profile you mention It by Stephen King. When I first tried to read that book, I had two small boys. I believe it's pretty early in the book that little boys are eaten by Pennywise the clown, or maybe it was the scene where the brother doing a magic show makes the other brother disappear. But whatever, I put the book down (couldn't help but imagine my boys in those places) and couldn't read it for several more years. LOL. And I read every SK book, it's not that. It was the characters were too much like my babies at the time.
from awomanalone :
OK, George Bush is a major asshole. Anybody who hasn't figured that out yet is a complete idiot (half the damn country). I saw on the news that 60% of Americans are against gay marriage, so Georgie is playing it safe, trying to make some brownie points. And no doubt it will work. (because the people are idiots)..............Living with women means getting used to periods, it's that simple (and we don't like them either)..............And Nick has bad taste in men, consider it a compliment he isn't attracted to you.
from lostincoma :
*flashes herself in the mirror, goes blind* haha...i think i'm an exception to your "college girl" entry, as i never, NEVER talk about any of that stuff with my girl friends. although i think i'm in a more unique situation, since most of my girl friends haven't ever had boyfriends...so it's not like we can sit and compare...i'd just be fueling the whole conversation, lol. oh, and as a virgin, i think kissing is highly overrated. in fact, i don't really care for it at all. damn, i must sound like a walking freakshow. oh, and just to get the censors on your ass: vagina, vagina, vagina. hehe...
from awomanalone :
Hedgie, nudity in public is a huge issue for a million reasons. I'm not gonna discuss most of them. But I think people should have the choice of seeing nudity or not. That's the problem with the Janet Jackson thing- nobody had a choice. It was an inappropriate time and place for nudity. And nobody knew it was coming. I think she was wrong. When you have children, you'll see it differently.
from lostincoma :
i liked your "mad world" entry, it really conveys how i'm feeling at the moment. last weekend, i was at my house on my brother's computer, and he had left that song on repeat, so i ended up listening to it for two hours straight. and as i type this, i'm listening to him, as well. anyway, thanks for the note. i can't say i've been in the best of moods lately, despite tomorrow's concert. but i hope this depression won't loom for long. glad you had fun with J and her family...don't worry, i believe your story, hehe. it's just very...strange. interesting, nonetheless. :)
from joe-john :
Hey Hedgehoggy. We haven't been in contact at all for the past few months, so I thought I'd just drop a line to say what's up. Congrats on the new relationship with J, which sounds like its going great, and your last entry (meeting her parents) was laugh out loud funny. Absolutely hilarious stuff. By the way, I had a question about Hedgehoggy chronology. My impression was that you were in your mid 20's and done college. However, now it seems you are going to class and living in a dorm. Did you take time off and go back? Was I wrong about your age? Just wanted to get that cleared up. Later.
from awomanalone :
I was wondering if I was going to have to explain that comment. I thought, with some of the things you have said in the past, that J's bisexuality would turn you off. By having a relationship with her, it shows that you're very accepting of it. So I thought you were broadening your horizons by being more open minded and accepting. But I could be confused. The sex part is just fun :)
from awomanalone :
Wow hedgie got laid! And with a bisexual girl? You're broadening your horizons. Very good. I'm glad for you.
from lostincoma :
*jumps in excitement over pictures, falls hastily off chair in process* yes, you do spoil me, mikey. :) and you're right - i'm DEFINITELY sleeping better with the assurance that you got laid. once again, congrats on your scoreage. :)
from lostincoma :
um, donnie darko is suck a fucking great movie with great actors, great direction, great music, and...great EVERYthing. it makes me joyous to hear that it's being rereleased. :) and about the music, i was on my brother's computer at home the other day and he had that song they play at the end on repeat (can't remember who sang it). i adore that song, it kicks major booty. so yeah...glad you had a good v-day, congrats on getting laid. :D

hmm...nice teaser entry, lol. i'm looking forward to hearing all about it in a nice, lengthy, hedgehoggy-flavored entry! also can't wait for this surprise you have yet to send me. :)
from lostincoma :
your house address, that is. just thought i'd clarify. :)
from lostincoma :
actually, aniston used to (or maybe still does) work out and at one point, she had some nice arms. like you could tell she had muscles, but they weren't overbearing...i think it's kinda scary when women have huge, bulging muscles, but her's were hot. it actually motivated me to work out for about five minutes, lol. oh and also, i need your address! either i've lost it again, or it's at my house in plano!
from lostincoma :
for whatever reason, the one issue i have the strongest feelings for is gay rights. hearing that not one of the democratic candidates supports gay marriage pisses me off to the point of either not voting or going and voting for none of them. why can't these people put themselves in the shoes of a homosexual?! how would THEY feel if they were suddenly told that their love for their significant other wasn't considered "healthy" or "acceptable" to society? it's absolutely ridiculous...sorry, i tend to go off about this issue when provoked. about the bi girl - that's cool that you've found a friend in her, but be careful not to base your entire liking of her on her sexuality. bisexual/gay people have other interesting qualities besides their sexuality, just like we do. :)
from lostincoma :
interesting, as well as funny, you had me laughing, as usual. i didn't know shirley was doing a song with manson. and when the hell is this album coming out already?! oh and one thing i found particularly funny was your need to include oprah, hilary duff, and dr. phil in the same sentence. that's definitely some kind of accomplishment...
from lostincoma :
and it's not like i should be talking, as i don't have the best sense of fashion in the world anyway. so everyone should just disregard any and all comments i make regarding fashion. battle royale sounds interesting...for some reason, i'm curious to see how they could make a whole movie out of that plot. ok as you can see, i'm really going out of my mind now, as this is the THIRD note i've left you in the past five minutes, so i'm turning off my computer and going to bed before this internet sucks me even farther into it's huge vortex. expect that e-mail sometime tomorrow!
from lostincoma :
i think that last note came out wrong, like i was saying i still luv ya despite what you wear, lol. serves me right for leaving notes at such a late hour of the night. anyway, you know i meant no harm by it, and that my sleep-deprived mind is just fucking with me. i'm a luva, not a hata...ok, this is the part where i should really go to bed now.
from lostincoma :
go ahead, try to listen to NFG. if you're anything like me, you won't be able to stand that shit for more than five seconds. my apologies to any and all skaterboys of the world if my harsh and meaningless words may have offended you...you know i still luv ya no matter what you wear, mike. :)
from awomanalone :
Hedgie, about the note you left me, I agree completely. Fucked up world we live in.
from lostincoma :
if you even remember me at this point, i just want you to know that i haven't forgotten about you, and that i apologize for being an asshole of a friend by not sending you pix or e-mailing you back. i intend on doing both either tonight or this weekend, when i can sit down and really spend some time writing to you. i hope i'm not one of the people you talk about in your entries that has betrayed your trust, because it certainly wasn't and isn't my intention of doing so. i appreciate your comments and kind words for me, especially since i've been feeling so shitty. so until you hear from me...well, i would say "be happy!", but i suppose that would be rather hypocritical of me... :)
from awomanalone :
I've lived in the south most of my life, and I know what you're talking about. But we need to be careful to avoid these blanket assumptions. Try to seperate the "black" from the person's behavior. Their behavior is personal choice. Anyone can live in a shit house and wear $400 clothes. It has nothing to do with skin color. It's a choice. Anyone can screw then pee on young teens, even tho they are an adult (how gross!). J. Jackson could be overly excitable about anything, regardless of his own heritage. I don't want to be judged by poor choices made by some whites, so I don't judge anyone else that way. Of course, you can't control what other's choose to judge you by, you can only control your own choices. I choose not to assume that all people of a certain race do the same untasteful thing, simply because of their race.

I think GW is an egotistical idiot. The ONLY thing he's done to earn any respect from me was to go to Iraq on Thanksgiving and spend time with the soldiers. I doubt his ability to beat Saddam if they went one to one in a boxing ring. However, I am extremely happy Saddam is caught! We don't torture him because that's what makes us better than him- we give people fair trials and punishments as laid out by the law.
from brittanya :
I think the word "twat" used for "vagina" is the most disgusting possible word you could ever use for it. It just sounds really nasty to me. Then again, I think vagina sounds nasty as well. Why can't vaginas be called roses, and roses be called vaginas. "A rose by any other name would still smell...." Twat is not even a very versatile word. You can call a dumb girl a "fucking cunt" and it's totally acceptable, but if you called her a "fucking twat" it would be weird. Yuck, too much twattage in this sentence. You asked for an opinion about this topic and I personally don't really care about hearing about what I have down there because I already know. Picture it like this, how would you like reading about penises. Yay, penises, yay vaginas, we have them. THen again this is your diary and if the thought of cunts turns you on (it's a figure of speech though also applicable to your situation) then you should write anything and everything you want. It's not like I'll just quit reading your entries cause' you write about cunts, it's kinda like porn you know, once you start watching it's hard to stop.
from awomanalone :
You're interesting, except for the part about retainers. LOL. If I can make a request, I'd like to hear more about misconceptions you know about that other guys have. I'm curious and it's not the kind of thing you can just go asking people. When I was young, girls did not give oral, it was gross. That's changed, hasn't it? Also, there was a time when really hairy men were popular (Burt Reynolds comes to mind). I think I like trimming (but not shaving) much better.

from lostincoma :
hey brittany, well-written note, but just to let you know, not everyone keeps an online diary for the same reasons you do. i, for one, sure as hell don't keep one just to write about daily happenings, and many people do actually write for others and keep their audience in mind. after all, it makes sense to actually care about who reads you and what they think - otherwise, you might as well keep a paper diary and not publish it on the www. like you, i'm not here to argue, i just thought that needed to be said. and mike, as embarrassing as you think those entries might have been...oh fuck the notes page, i'm sending you an e-mail.
from awomanalone :
LOL, I have always been blunt. It has gotten my into a good deal of trouble. I have tried to soften my approach over the years, but I just believe in the truth. It's nice that you can see that quality in me, I never mean to offend anyone. I have had times of extreme lonliness in my life, and it's very true that people get married, have children, have jobs, and just don't have the time for friendships like they did before all that. It's just something you have to get used to. And of course, you need to realize that they're not avoiding you, they're just living their life and being responsible adults. PS- I think a little (or a lot) of encouragement would be adequate to get me to walk up the darn hill. Encouragement and company.
from awomanalone :
You're a young college graduate. You are at a cross roads of life, and standing on a high hill! That degree will be very valuable to you. You're young, energetic, kind and loving, outgoing and fun. What do you WANT to do with your life?? Universities can help you find what you can do with your specific degree. A degree will even help you get a job in a completely different field than the one you studied, because it shows you're smart and determined. Find out what you want to do as a job, a person with a job they love is a very fortunate person. People are always going to come and go in your life. They are making the decisions that they feel are best for them, you need to do the same, and don't take their choices personally. Would you rather just go through life knowing nobody? You will always have the memories and experiences you shared, that isn't going anywhere. It's ok to just enjoy today for today. What are you waiting for?? The day you're guaranteed everyone here today will be here forever? That's not going to happen. What do you WANT to have to show for your life? What do you want to do with yourself? The options are endless at this point. Life is an endless journey of taking action, then assessing where you are and where you want to go, then taking action. Both are required- the assessing and the action. You want someone to talk to? Jump in the car and head on down to Louisiana, I'll talk to you. You can push my lazy butt up the hill and show me how to work out while you're here. ;) If you were alone in a white room, the thoughts in your head would be magnified, not quieted. Gotta deal with them.
from awomanalone :
Honey, life will knock you down and knock you down. Even when it lifts you up, it's only temporary. You did a good job with that one woman, I know you did a good job with many women that day and every day you have worked. She was the only one kind and thoughtful enough to write. You only get joy from yourself. What I mean is, take pride in your actions and choices and don't worry about what others think. There will ALWAYS be more willing to cut you down than build you up, no matter who you are or what you do. You have friends and family who support you and show pride in you, take joy from them. Don't look to your boss to give you any joy, it's incredibly unlikely to happen. And why give them the power over you of how you feel about yourself?? They probably think they are shit, so they treat everyone else like shit to try to build their own ego. You can bust ass and be the best worker there is, and it might get you absolutely NOTHING. Then the lazy fuck you work with everyday gets a raise. Life is NOT fair. Take joy and pride in YOURSELF, and don't give away that power to assholes.

-"Sorry, I didn't email you. It's nothing personal." So obviously this quote is from me, unless I am wrong and someone else wrote the same thing to you. I am not stupid Mike, and I am way more perceptive than you give me credit for. Unlike you, my reason for having this diary is so that I can write down stuff that happens in my life. I am not here to be the winner in a damn popularity contest. I am not here to find people that I can send emails back and forth to. I am a busy, stressed-out girl, writing is this diary is my catharsis. And you want to talk about honesty...you are the one that knew we lived in the same town but wouldn't come out and tell me, instead you just dropped me little hints so that I would figure it out. You should write your diary for yourself, not for anyone else. The fact of the matter is that you have changed how you write your entries. You just care too much about what other people think of you, I caught on to this a long time ago. Jesus christ, I didn't come here to fight fucking wars with people, I came here so I could write in a diary and read the diaries of other people that are interesting to me! You are not "entertainment" to me, you are just a boy writing in his diary that I happened to like to read. So whatever. If you are going to ditch your hedgehoggy diary and start and new one so that none of us losers can find it, more power to you. I'm glad you have your precious Sammy. As for the hedgehoggy diary, I will continue reading it until or IF it expires. Unless, that is, you want to actually confront me and tell me to quit reading. If that's the case then grow some balls and do it, I will never use you as "entertainment" again. BRITTANY

oh my god, i SO know what you mean about putting your clean clothes away when you return from thanksgiving break! it's what i absolutely dread about coming back to school. in fact, when i got back yesterday, i was so lazy that i just stopped hanging the clothes up, so as a result, half of them are still sitting in my laundry basket, lol. ok second, i enjoy your stories about all the goings-on at work; they remind me of all the crazy stuff that went on at my work. i also went through the pain of being on my feet all day - and i was wearing high heels! and of course, i can't forget all the crazy people i worked with. i might work there over winter break, so be prepared for more bitching. :) as for your mom's gift, i honestly can't give you any advice there. hell, i have the hardest time figuring out what to get my own mom, lol. anyway, sorry this is long, i just haven't been able to read your entries until today when i have computer access. and i got your e-mail and will get back to you if dead week and finals don't consume me in the next two weeks. :)

personally, i think old navy has better deals for guys' clothes than girls' clothes. i don't really like their girls' stuff anyway, i only shop there for flip flops and bags. and sorry to bust your bubble, but old navy is involved in the slave labor thing. i read about it in a book, and the news disturbed me more than that of any other company, simply because of the stark contrast between their colorful, happy commercials and the brutal working environment their clothes are produced in. sad, but true.

Guys who express themselves freely are hard to come by, so its always fascinating to read an honest guy's perspective. I'm so glad to hear about the job... making money makes life so much easier! And definitely write an entry on the lovely female anatomy, most guys just want to play with them, not compliment them, so that would be really interesting to read!
from lostincoma :
wooo hooo, mike's working at toys r us! hope you had a good first day! i'm so jealous, since i don't have a job right now and would *really* like to have a source of income for saving/spending. i do intend to send you an e-mail, possibly today, but i need to get some reading done first, among other errands. sorry to keep you waiting, i'm a bad friend...but you will hear from me soon!
from awomanalone :
I can't find your e-mail anywhere, you have mine. Can you please send your e-mail so I can talk about it in private? Thank you :)
from awomanalone :
Hey Mike, I just figured out that you can probably help me. Do you know a website where I can find instructions for a basic strength workout for someone just beginning (me)? With instructions on how to do the exercises correctly and how many reps and all that? There are a lot of websites, but I haven't found what I'm looking for, and I don't know which ones are trustworthy. I live in a small town and there is a gym with some equipment, but nobody to give instructions. Thanks.

You should drink some nyquil, it will help you fall asleep. It tastes nasty but luscious sleep is worth it. You can fall asleep, oh yes, don't dwell on not being able to fall asleep. It's all in your mind, man.
from lostincoma :
a SUPER congrats on getting the job! aw, my little hedgehoggy is traveling out into the working world...makes me so...happy! *sniff* haha. well, if anything can spice up a person's entries, it's definitely a job. well that's my experience, at least. i'm sure this job'll be great for you, despite the early hours. i just know it'll give you so many new things to write about, even if you do have to cut back on entries. yay for mike! oh, and in my entry, i wasn't the one that was late to the group meeting, it was this other brown girl. sorry for the confusion, i'm not the best writer. :)
from awomanalone :
I think your entries are very funny, even without your creative juices. Congrats on the job. Does that mean only one entry per day?? I hope not.
from awomanalone :
Thanks for the nice note :) I read your diary every day, and fitness is so fundamental to your personality and view of the world. I wish I felt the same!
from lostincoma :
i'm not particularly into the new wave stuff, but orgy wears makeup, and i think they're all *very* pretty. you have to admire guys like them, they can apply makeup better than i can, lol. i'm all for boys wearing makeup, as long as they can pull it off. :)
from lostincoma :
i haven't had computer access all weekend, so i couldn't read you! but here i am now, ready to comment. :) first of all, good for you for getting into a running routine. i feel ya on the shin splints thing, since i used to get them when i played soccer. i *really* wanna start running again, but like most americans, i'm not very good at disciplining myself to do it. i also feel ya on the weight thing. i'm not one that cares too much about my weight, but i noticed i've gained a lot since the beginning of the semester. ok well i lied, i DO care about my weight, but only when i start gaining too much. so i'll have to incorporate some kind of diet/exercise into my routine soon. ok, i'm rambling now...glad to hear your heart's feeling better, so sorry about your flat tire and your dog having a seizure...man, sounds like one crazy weekend for mikey, huh? this is a shitty note, but i will e-mail you soon!
from stunnedblond :
Hey hun, I know I haven't been the most attentive diarylander lately, but the truth is that I updated today and regardless of how busy I am, I wouldn't make it through the week without reading what you have to say. And yes, yes, I'm evening putting a comment for you in my profile...I just have to think of something witty hehe, anyways just thought I'd remind you that I love reading your diary you sexy thing! *kisses*
from awomanalone :
I keep a .txt file with all my nicknames and passwords for every freakin' site I'm signed up with. I keep a spare copy of the file on floppy. Just an idea for you.
from awomanalone :
I was just reading this yesterday, and your post made me think of it again. There's a question about the longest penis size on record, good reading. LOL http://www.bizarremag.com/ask/sex.php#Anchor-35326
from awomanalone :
OK, thanks :)

When nobody's looking, unplug your dad's computer. By the time he figures out what's wrong with it, you'll have all the time you need.

You may be the Captain, and this may be your Log, but you're not the boss of me. AAAAAAARRGGGG matey! Good night hedgehoggy. Yeah, and I'm going to bed cause I want to, not cause you told me to, so there. Yeah...so there.
from brittanya :
Anyways, I happen to like what penises look like.
from brittanya :
Happy Samhain!
from lost1985 :
dearest hedgehoggy, I totally agree about homosexualas..it's whatever they want to do and if they're happy-GREAT. I have an aunt who's a lesbian and my bestfriend in school was gay and I love them both with all my heart..just as much as I did before I knew they're sexual preferance. I love'd your entry today..you rock! PS-locking your diary? may I still read?
from lostincoma :
i'm so jealous that your dvd comes out tomorrow, i have to wait 'till the middle of fucking november to get the linkin park dvd. ah well, it's worth it anyway (daydreams of cute boys with spikey hair and guitars).
from awomanalone :
Congrats on the new shoes :)
from lostincoma :
i'm gonna have to disagree with you on gilbert grape. i thought leo did an awesome job with the character. when the movie came out, no one knew who he was, and i heard that he played the part so well that a lot of people thought he was actually retarded in real life. oh and he didn't win the award, he was only nominated. sorry...i'm a bit of a dicaprio expert, since i used to be obsessed with him, hehe.
from lostincoma :
that was quite a revealing entry. i've always liked your honesty and the fact that you just say what's on your mind. you don't seem to hold back, and that's rare among people these days. oh, and i can't say i know what you mean with going back to bars and feeling old, but i definitely feel like that when i'm at home and i pick up my brother from high school. i'll be sitting in my car in the parking lot, playin' my music with the windows down, and these tenth graders are walking by dissin' my music! gah! i'm only 19 and already being dismissed as old and uncool! *sobs* :)
from awomanalone :
I like to read your diary because it's funny and interesting and honest. I added you to my favs because 1. you are one of my favs, and 2. people were adding me to their favs, so I felt like I should reciprocate, and 3. I haven't found any good depression diarys on diaryland!
from awomanalone :
OK Hedgehoggy, I cave. You're on my favs list. I still hope you don't let rude stupid people lead you into doing what you don't really want to do.
from lostincoma :
homey d's in tha hizzouse! as intriguing as texas may be to people who have never been there, trust me, it's not all that exciting. the only reason i love it is because it's the only place i've ever lived. although it is a pain in the ass riding horses everywhere and wearing those damn cowboy boots all day. hehe, j/k.
from lostincoma :
i have to confess i watched camp jim today, and it actually wasn't that bad. i could relate to the back hand spring girl because i remember being too terrified to do a back flip in gymnastics when i was younger. it's fuckin' scary man! the show also reminded me of my soccer days, having to endure the wrath of a coach and being worked to the breaking point. and about locking your diary...of course i never doubted you would give me a password; we're old homies, man! hehe.
from awomanalone :
HI :) I read the page you referred me to. I enjoy reading your diary, I like your honesty and your writing style. You are not on my favs because I am trying to find some good diaries about mood disorders on diaryland to refer people to since that is the main focus of diary, and my purpose for having a diary. Notice, NOBODY is on my favs right now. <p>But I want to tell you that I think you are allowing a few rude and stupid people get the better of you. Who are they that they should have so much power over you? People only have as much power over you as you allow them to have. Who cares what they think about you or your diary?? Who cares which diaries they like or don't like?? Why let them upset you? and why let them take the pleasure of reading your diary from the rest of us? If you are really so private that you don't want anyone reading it, that's a good reason to lock it, BUT if you are letting others make this decision for you because they are rude, that's not a good reason. In my opinion. AWA
from awomanalone :
I only just discovered your diary, WHY are you going to lock it??
from brittanya :
Daaaaamn smokey...your on fire tonight. And remember: only YOU can prevent forest fires.
from lostincoma :
mike, i mean this with the uttermost respect when i say this, but...DAMN, you can rant bigger, badder, and better than any girl i've ever known! i wish i could give you some encouraging advice to get you to not lock your diary, like don't let the dumb shits make you close yourself off to the world. but then again, i haven't had the bad experiences you've had on diaryland, so i can't truly understand what you're going through. i hear ya though on stupid people, cuz i've known my fair share of 'em. on the bright side, i'm glad you're not leaving diaryland altogether, as i would miss your entries. so as much as i'm sure many people don't want you to lock your diary, it's ultimately your decision, and i'm glad you're doing what makes you happy.
from stunnedblond :
Aww you're such a sweetheart! Thanks for adding me on as a fav. Since I did this whole starting over thing on Diaryland I've lost a lot of readers...but oh well...a fresh start was necessary. You know I'm going to be wanting a password when you lock your diary, I need my daily dose of you! hehe It's nice to see there are other people out there who like to tell it like it is. By the way...sorry about the MSU/Illinois game...but I sure enjoyed it!

lmao...just to let you know, a lot of middle easterners (specifically male ones) tend to smell really bad. i mean, i suppose THEY don't think they smell bad because it's a normal smell for them. but i will admit, it's pretty nasty. gotta love brown people. :) btw, i was thinking the SAME thing when i saw macy on cribs! her attempted humor was really lame, lol. oh and i wouldn't worry about the hummer thing. chances are, these celebrities don't drive them that often anyway, so they don't waste too much gas. hopefully...
from h-ogwarts- :
Hey, how did you get the notes thingy on!!?? :P Btw, nice entry.. bwa ha ha.. me thinks me like..
from lostincoma :
i'm gonna let you in on a little secret. girls don't care for playgirl because girls don't find the naked male body as attractive as straight guys find the naked female body. i mean come on, you guys have to agree that penises are more funny looking than attractive, right?! women don't mind seeing guys topless or even in just their underwear (*goes back to the days of the mark wahlberg ck underwear ads*). but full nudity just don't do it for us like naked girls do it for you. seriously, i'm secure enough in my sexuality to say that i'd sooner flip through playboy than playgirl! okay, shutting up now. :)
from lostincoma :
i'm here! *waves* either you're crazy or i'm really tired (maybe both!), but i was following your entry until you brought the whole gorilla-banana thing up. lol.
from brittanya :
What the...? Is there seriously an amendemnt that says our houses can be searched? What ever happened to illegal search and seizure? I'm so dissapointed.
from brittanya :
Funny how you mention retarded. When I wrote it in my entry it bugged me and I wanted to put "physically challenged" instead. But that would of sounded, well, retarded. Then today I read two diaries and they both used the word retarded. They both sounded pretty retarded. Yeah~
from stunnedblond :
Well honey, you left me a message back when I was exblondie for my password? I figured it was time for me to debut a new and improved (and unlocked) journal to write about all the skanky debauchery college life is providing me with. My journal isn't pretty yet and I only have one entry...but I guarantee it will be some interesting reading. And of course you're on my new fav list...Lots of kisses!
from lostincoma :
props to vanity fair for using the caption we all want to see on a magazine cover. i know what you mean with the britney thing; i honestly can't ever picture having a substantial conversation with her. don't get me wrong, i'm sure she's excellent at talking about clothes and stuff...but that's just something i don't do well. ah, we all have our weaknesses, i suppose. btw, anybody that might interest me in that vanity fair issue? i hardly ever go to the store so i don't get to see magazines that often, and most grocery stores don't even carry the shit that i read (like rolling stone).
from brittanya :
If you lock up your shit please please please give me the password! It just would not be the same without you.
from lostincoma :
i wouldn't say you're a fuck up for that whole race entry, if that's what you mean. everyone's entitled to your opinion, and it seems to me that your's has been shaped by where you live and what goes on in your town. i'm sure others will disagree with you, but that's probably because they've had different experiences in their own towns. me, personally? well to relate this to "the card", i'm pretty much against affirmative action because i believe there are other ways to educate more minority groups. i won't go into it, as it would take too long, but...hmm, maybe an entry about it would do? maybe i'll get around to that sometime, it's just another topic to add to the list, hehe.
from lostincoma :
lmao...da band paid a little visit to my school last week to do a little meet and greet thingy. i so wanted to go over there and ask them if they EVER actually got along with each other. cuz every time i've seen that show, all they do is fight. it's quite funny. oh, and have you noticed how one of the guys on there sucks his thumb? this is a grown man consciously sucking his thumb...madness...
from brittanya :
oh hedgehoggy...your such a big strong interesting man.
from lostincoma :
hehe, i remember during the last presidential election, i saw SO many bumper stickers that read "bush + gore = BORE". 'tis simply true. oh, and *whispers* i kinda like how wade ryan dances, even if it is a little...spastic. :)
from lostincoma :
YEAH baby, big shoutout to alf! what? he's no puppet! that dude is as real as janet reno, and no one can convince me otherwise! woo hooo!
from brittanya :
I agree with you in that fall in the best time of the year. Chilly enough for long sleeves, yet not cold enough for a coat. It was fucking hot as hell today and it ruined my day. Down with the sun, I say. Don't you just love the smell of burning leaves? I sure do.
from lostincoma :
i join you in your hatred of joan rivers! i used to watch her fashion shows after every award show and laugh, but now i can't even bear it. and she does do a lotta interviews where she doesn't know the celebrity. the funniest, by far, was when ashanti showed up with ja rule, joan interviews her, and then says, "and who is your date?" gaaahahaha! funny shit...oh, and the correct spelling is chihuahua, if my memory serves me right.
from smile4onlyu :
awww...u read it, im glad u liked it. yea i guess we do huh? My favorite part in the book is when she gets caught with her 'porn'. In all honesty we all have a wild part of us sexually and alot of people try to hide it. I love that she did something to express it. were u interested in the smack book i was telling u about? well happy reading.
from lostincoma :
oh, and i like your choices...even though you grew up with the generation before mine and i'm not familiar with a lotta those songs, lol. at least we find common ground with garbage and the pumpkins, right?!
from lostincoma :
ooo, is that a challenge? i've always been afraid to make a "soundtrack to my life" sorta thing because there are just WAY too many songs to choose from. gimme a day or two and i'll see what i got. i'm also working on another "list" that i intend to post soon, but won't give away what it's about yet. you'll just have to wait in suspense, haha. riiiight...
from lostincoma :
the thing i can't understand about r. kelly, regardless of whether or not it really was him on those videos, is why in the HELL he would go and make a music video with hos, after almost gettin' in some deep shit about sexin' up a juvenille! it boggles my mind how people like him can even show their faces to the public eye, let alone make a hoochie-ass music video! and as for rappers...well i agree that most of it is crap these days. but the current object of my infatuation happens to be a rapper (mike from linkin park). so i can't say i hate it all. he's in a rock group though, and he doesn't write songs about hos and drugs and bling, so it's admirable (and good) that there are at least some people out there tryin' to do different stuff with rap. ok, i digress. :)
from lostincoma :
trucker hats are ok, but only on some people. ashton kutcher and justin timberlake seem to wear 'em a lot and they look good in 'em. aaron carter, on the other hand, still belongs in diapers. i was laughing SO hard when i read he dated hilary duff. he was talking about it like it was some serious relationship, and for some reason, that just cracked my ass up. anyway, entertaining entry, as usual. :)
from lostincoma :
lmao, i like that joke. man i gotta write that one down...i always hear good jokes but can never remember them, so i have to write them down. yeah, i know i'm a little dumb...oh check your e-mail, btw. ;)
from lostincoma :
i was never really one of those screaming hanson fans, but i actually gotta back them up on this one. for every person that hates hanson because of that one annoying mmmbop song, listen to the rest of their record, as well as the follow-up to it. their other stuff sounds nothing like mmmbop and is actually really decent shit. no joke. and hey, why bash them when they at least write their own songs, unlike all the other shitty pop artists out now? :)
from lostincoma :
lmao...that was a really funny entry. i got kinda lost around the "girl's tampon flying out" thing (i can safely say you did NOT learn that from MY diary, lol), but it was all funny as hell. it's funny how you mentioned your stance on gays...this girl made an anti-gay comment in my class today and it pissed me off like none other. i just can't stand how some people want to take away the rights of others just because the others are doing something they don't approve of. it makes me sick.
from brittanya :
Oh yeah, I read your diary because you are ORIGINAL, and you don't give a fuck what people think! Hooray!
from brittanya :
Hey, your note made me smile! Thank you for the compliment. Keep on keepin' on!
from lostincoma :
wow, mild setback to find out that hot topic girl's married. that'll teach ya to look for that ring on her finger next time. :) next topic: limp bizkit. i'm glad someone else FINALLY pointed out the disturbing qualities of this video, i was beginning to think i was all alone in my observations. seriously, fred's a twisted guy to film a concept like that. oh, and i'm SO disappointed in thora birch AND the other guy (his name slips my mind at the moment) for being in the video. i'd have thought they had better taste than that. final topic: you think YOUR tape player's possessed? my tape player in my old car once stopped my tape, rewound it, and then proceeded to eject it and send it careening into the backseat! i shit you not, this really happened! man, that's what i get for kickin' it old skool...
from lostincoma :
going to a place to dance in your underwear? that reminds me of the jimmy eat world video, where these kids strip down to their underwear as they arrive at a house party and dance like...weird, underwear kids. hmm...strange fad if ya ask me. our generation is just a little too creative sometimes...

awww! (starts singing) memmmmories... *sniff*
from lost1985 :
OH MY GOD! I REMEMBER! I REMEMBER! That entry gave me goosebumps! You are so awesome!!
from smile4onlyu :
that was one of the most amazing and touching entries u have ever had..... i loved it!
from smile4onlyu :
yea i love how heated this is getting....cathy cootes is the writer i do believe...its in my diary somewhere i will check...but i am pretty sure that that is the author...think u might be interested? if u read it let me know if u like it....on the cover it is a girl in a uniform just her legs and skirt. happy reading
from lostincoma :
ok, so she's done one makeup ad, big deal. if you look at my other note, you'll find that i said she doesn't market her image, "at least not to the pop star extent". i read in some interview somewhere that she did it cuz she liked the brand of makeup and wore it all the time. and that's cool with me if an artist wants to do that. it's become very common for bands to be approached by clothing companies for ads after the companies saw how much of their clothes the band wore on stage and stuff. correct me if i'm wrong, but earlier in their careers, korn wore so much addidas stuff that addidas actually asked them to do ads. so, korn plugs addidas because they like 'em, addidas gives 'em the free clothes that they love. it's a give and take thing that both sides benefit from. but i'm getting too far into this. my point is, at least shirley doesn't max out her image by doing ads out the wazoo, especially for products she doesn't even use. i mean come on, do you think britney ever wears those roller skate sketchers or drinks no soda other than pepsi? i could go a lot more in depth about the various methods of advertising, but i really don't have the energy right now.
from smile4onlyu :
well hello...guess what i happened to stumble apon....while reading through the september issue of cosmopolitan u will never guess what i saw! a mac makeup advertisement with Mary j blige, elton john and.....SHIRLEY MANSON. wow it is a good thing that she isnt out there selling her image....humm....maybe next months add will have shirly with brittney or jessica simpson...wouldnt that be cool? just letting ya know.
from lostincoma :
oh my god i LOVE saved by the bell! what else is there to say about the GREATEST high school show in HISTORY?! of course, the immense crush i had on zack morris may have swayed my opinion just a little... :)
from lostincoma :
mike, your entry just made me realize something: in the past year or two, i've completely stopped buying cds, unless one of my favorite bands puts one out. i remember i used to love hearing new bands and buying their cds and falling in love with their music...but the currently dwindling music industry (in my opinion) has made me lose hope of ever finding any good new bands anymore, and i have since stopped giving most of them a chance. except for bands that have been around before and coldplay, there's nothing good in mainstream anymore and that sucks. a few years ago, i used to buy a couple cds a month; now it's probably 3-5 cds a YEAR. blegh. oh and i agree with your whole cd prices rant, but it doesn't bother me so much, since i can just go to target and buy cds for $10-13. life is good. :) in response to smile4onlyu, i agree that it's a tough job for pop stars to be in the limelight and commend them for handling it FAR better than i ever could. it just bugs me that some of them (females in particular) like britney have absolutely NOTHING of importance or intelligence to say. at least christina's making music with a message, regardless of whether or not i agree with it. britney, however, is two years my senior and has the education of a five-year-old. it'd be nice to see an intelligent celebrity now and then, but it seems they are few and far between. oh well...your books sound interesting, too bad i have little time to read for pleasure, let alone my actual reading assignments. :)
from smile4onlyu :
thx for your note....honestly i dont have a problem with people saying shit about bush but i am sick of people not doing anything about what they believe in..it is one thing to say something but when u do something..u show that u have balls....as far as pop stars....i dont listen to them and i do not consider my self a teenie bopper but u have to respect someone who was able to make it in the music industry and deal with all the stress...etc...i couldnt do it could u? as far as garbage i understand their lyrics...its kind of hard not to when they are all almost saying the same thing. go ask alice is an amazing book another good book is "smack" by melvin burgess. it is kinda diary style and it is about a few people instead of one. it is a really interesting look at how people think of heroin. i think u might like it if u have questions i would be more than happy to tell u about the book. another good book is "innocents" and it is by a british writer-i cant think of her name but the book is so good. an honest look at this young girls sexual behavior...she sedduces her teacher and then plays games with him...she draws porn and has major control issues...the end is hilarious. if u want i could find the author for u. i love to read so let me know if u want someother books
from lostincoma :
i feel ya on the halle berry-beyonce thing, cuz...well you know i have weird taste in guys, lol. i've had friends who've almost refused to talk to me because i don't think josh hartnett or brad pitt is that hot. seriously, no joke! although i do have to disagree with you, in that i think both halle and beyonce are pretty damn hot. come on mike, where's your taste?! hehehe...
from joe-john :
Hey Hedgehoggy. Thanks very much for your little bithday message. Alas, I did not explore the contents of any panties, but ah well. Happy birthday to you to, and maybe your panty-crusading luck will be better than mine! smile4onlyu - people have full right to critisize the president as much as they choose - that's what the whole system is based around. The question isn't could Hedgehoggy do a better job or is he doing anything more productive. The fact is many people (myself included) think Bush is not justifying his actions, is acting for ulterior motives, and someone else could do a much better job without shattering countries, screwing over international relations or completely fucking up international law.
from lostincoma :
people in the public eye are naturally subject to much scrutiny and criticism. since bush is in the public eye and has tackled some hot issues during his administration, he's scrutinized and criticized. i think it's perfectly ok to criticize bush; just because we elected him as our president (and even THAT is questionable) doesn't mean we have to follow and support everything he does like sheep. next...pop stars do have a lot of money, yes. but money doesn't necessarily equal talent OR success. just look at anna nicole smith! oh and don't even start with me on garbage! in some ways, i guess she's comparable to a pop star because she's an appealing front woman. but unlike britney, etc., shirley manson doesn't MARKET her image...at least not to the pop star extent. she doesn't do shoe commercials, doesn't have a doll of herself made...need i go on? anyway, that's all i have to say, i hope i didn't come off as rude and i appreciate you voicing your opinion. oh and mike, you're getting a birthday card, but it'll definitely be belated, lol.
from smile4onlyu :
since i started diaryland i have read your diary and i love it....normally but listen, i am so sick of people saying shit about bush and how he is doing a shitty job....ok if u can do better then do it...instead of lifting weights and not getting a job b/c none of them are good enough and bitching about pop stars....why dont u do something about it? b/c heres the deal...he is the pres ur not so obviously he is doing something right...and all those annoying popstars hay look at all the money they have and they are doing what they love hay s/o out there likes em....and those shitty jobs that arent good enough for you? well those jobs are helping some poor guy feed his whole family...and garbage? thats exactly what they are? all she does is bitch for attention all her lyrics are basically the same and if u really look into her she is just as pampered and stuck up as brittney just in trashy-er clothes and lots of runny black makeup....oh the drama...either way its all about money. i dont want u to be mad at me...im just sharing my opinion and either way i still respect yours and love your diary
from lostincoma :
i was gonna do an entry on the paul hill thing too. might get around to it later. oh and i was watching the newlyweds show the other night and almost cussed out my damn tv! they went camping, and i couldn't STAND how stereotypical it was - the men did all the work, while the women sat around reading romance novels. geezzz...jessica simpson is just a sad excuse for a human being. i hope nick leaves her, she wouldn't survive a minute on her own.
from lostincoma :
wow, i JUST downloaded some cypress hill stuff. coincidence? i think not...
from lostincoma :
i feel ya on the job-searching thing; i'm looking for one on campus, but the search is proving unsuccessful. i'll have to find something soon before there aren't any left. looking forward to this rapper/black leaders entry you speak of...
from lostincoma :
hilary duff - i agree. she's just trying to make competition for the olsen twins. p. diddy - i agree. biggie's been dead for like six years now, just let the man rest! missy's just as bad, mentioning alyiah (sp?) every chance she gets. eminem - i agree, he dresses nice and he always looks hot. rap sucks - i agree, and the even worse thing is that it really made a comeback this year. there's been some good stuff though, i just try to ignore the stupid lyrics. coldplay is the shit - i agree. gays do dress better most of the time, in my opinion. oh, and jimmy falon is the cutest thing ever, gay or straight, lol. making fun of m.j. is cool and fred durst sucks - i agree. kelly should be shot and justin WAS very mediocre - i agree. pam anderson is ugly - i DISagree. i really liked her outfit, i just think she's a little too stacked on top. oh and yes, i was definitely cheering for mah sexy linkin park boys. :)
from miss-edith :
When exactly is your birthday again? I know it's soon, but I'm no good with dates. Also, I just heard of a werewolf movie called Wolfen (?) Have you seen it?
from miss-edith :
It's official. I have to start watching O.C. Now tell me, what is your name? What is your quest? What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow? (or something like that. hee!)
from lost1985 :
maybe you should give me a little preview of all the positions that I'm going to do..haha
from miss-edith :
Ah, Hedgehoggy in love, how cute!
from exblondie :
After being stranded in my house with no internet due to the whole power outage thing....you're diary was the first one i went to catch up on.....don't let people get you down, I think you're hilarious and sexy
from lost1985 :
I still love you with all my heart and would never think of you as not a favorite..big kiss!
from miss-edith :
hee! The Gigli thing was funny.
from dooda :
Those pictures, huh? Ha! Ok. well... if you earn them. ;)
from fluffykatt :
I am a lazy lazy person. Although I solemnly swear lengthen my updates. I think I just have a short attention span..
from miss-edith :
damn that's a lot of workout
from joe-john :
Hey Hedgehoggy. I have a rather silly question, but I can't think who else to ask, as you often talk about working out. 10 days ago, I thought I could stand to lose a few pounds, and since then, have started a diet, and work out 40-45 minutes every day (the first real exercise I've done in 2 years). Now, I realize it's only been 10 days, but I have lost no weight at all. I was wondering if it was possible that I was gaining muscle weight at the same rate as I was losing fat, or maybe I'm just not doing a significant enough diet (or I just need to give it some more time). I had a sudden weight gain in the couple of weeks before I started working out, but my weight loss seems to be at a much slower rate, alas. Anyway, I was didn't know how fast muscle build-up was compared to fat loss, and I just wanted your opinion. Sorry to bother you!
from lostincoma :
this kid had a crush on me in kindergarten and ate glue in an attempt to impress me. needless to say, i was not too impressed and he never made it past the first grade. *sigh* i think he was officially my first sexual harrasser ever. oh the lovely memories of kindergarten...
from lostincoma :
"if you get laid send me a videotape"...lmao. no words for that one, i'm speechless. :)
from joe-john :
Yeah, I saw the answer you posted. Thanks - I understand now! I don't write my diary for other people either, but when people tell me they enjoyed something or found my diary interesting, it always pleases me! Your diary is really great, so keep up the good work, and thanks again!
from fluffykatt :
Amazing Race is like drugs. I can't handle that show. I always end up either screaming at the TV or turning it off due to heart palpitations.
from pura-vida :
I read a chunk of your archives over the weekend and really enjoyed it. I neglected to mention this in my guestbook entry from 30 seconds ago, but repeat signatures would give people the idea that I was stalking you. Which is, you know, possible. :)
from lostincoma :
i LOVE scrapbook making, but it's one of those things that i always wanna do but never get around to doing. damn the educational/occupational obligations of my life... :) as for movies, s.w.a.t. does look interesting (i have yet to see a collin farell movie), but for me, iz ALL about bad boys 2! i LOVED the first one and can't wait for the sequel, no matter how crappy it may be!
from lostincoma :
"Oprah doesn't know shit, okay? Dr. Phil is about as dumb as it gets (he said that pornography is one of the main reasons divorce happens). MTV does not stand for "Music Video Televison." Got all that?" ... well put, mike. i think that about sums it up and in a nutshell, says a lot about the way our country is in general. a lot of what you said in your entry is what i've been wanting to get out for a while now, so i applaud your words, as they have inspired me to write an entry on this (especially about the whole sodomy thing lately). look for one hopefully this weekend!
from lostincoma :
hey, have a good trip and a good hiatus from diaryland. although i'll miss your entries, i'm sure the break will do ya good and you'll come back with more eagerness than ever to start up again. have fun (or at least more fun than i'm having in spanish and history!).
from lostincoma :
i used to be depressed and contemplate all aspects of my life, but i don't do that so much anymore, and i've learned how to avoid it. i've learned that the best thing is to stay busy with your life. have obligations, have a schedule, have appointments and places you need to be. it can be work, school, volunteering, anything. but staying busy leaves you less time to contemplate the things you feel are missing in your life and become depressed. this summer, i go to school four days a week and work weekends. it's the busiest summer i've ever had, yet it's one of the best, because i don't get bored and i always have something on my schedule. i may be reading too much into this or just totally have misinterpreted what you're feeling, but thought i'd give my two cents anyway.
from lostincoma :
let me know how that coldplay album is, i've been contemplating getting it for the longest time. it's weird how everyone likes "clocks" cuz that's the one song of their's i don't like. but i LOVE "in my place" and "the scientist" (especially the new video for it, it's really good and sad). anyway, thanks for the shampoo advice. wish i had the time to go to b&n like you do. you know me, i salivate just HEARING the word "book", lol.
from lostincoma :
good luck with your job interview. god DAMN i hate job interviews, i've only done a few in my life, but i'm soooo bad at them, it's not even funny. oh, and 92 - you call that HOT?! try breaking 100; that's how we do in tejas. :) oh yeah, and if you haven't noticed...i'm baaaaaaack... :)
from miss-edith :
Hey! I double checked yesterday because I thought the same thing, and I don't have any emails from you later than the one I replied to last. I was about to send you a "Da hell?" note, but then I got yours. I feel like I wanted to tell you something but now I can't remember what. . . It'll come to me.
from miss-edith :
Wack-A-Mole is the name of the game. Did you get my last email?
from smile4onlyu :
sometimes the things u say are so amazing. When u talked about the numbers thing....i was so shocked! not many guys are as open minded and understanding as u! thanx for being a great guy!
from lost1985 :
"Umhm ah, that's right OH NO! CHECK YOURSELF GIRL! You gots a camel TOE!" have you heard that song? i think it's funny..haha
from miss-edith :
Hi! Doggie brought me squirrels a couple of times. That was fun. Anyway, I have been too busy to keep up with all your updates, and I haven't heard from you in ages! I hope you have a good time at the wedding.
from lostincoma :
"not many acts tour since their fans tend to shoot at them".....lmao! so sad, yet so true! WORD!!! oh and about the collin farell thing, i encourage you (as well as all men) to be secure enough with your sexuality to compliment on other guys' looks. girls can do it, why can't guys?! and i agree with the collin thing - he's hotter than...texas, but i'm not too crazy about the way he treats women. keep updating, don't leave diaryland!
from lost1985 :
Thank you, it feels good to know that someone out there thinks that I'm brave and doing the right thing..it means worlds.. I'm here and I listen! I hope I can help you gain back trust and hope for diaryland..I'll be the shining light at the end of the tunnel! wink wink..
from nikep :
RYN: Eegadz! I don't think I got an email. It could have gotten mixed in with my filtered stuff though. :( And, hell YES Ninja Gaiden II is hard! I tried playing it last night and got so very frustrated; the second "act" with the wind changing direction keeps throwing me off cliffs. lol.
from nikep :
If you like RPG's at all, you have to pick up Phantasy Star 4 for Genesis. One word - Great!

1) The oral sex entries... interesting. 2) Where do you download movies high quality enough to watch on a big screen TV??. I use mIRC, but the resolution (especially on new movies) is even poor on a monitor. Help a brotha out!
from lost1985 :
hedgehoggy-where was the oral sex entry? I was so looking forward to it..Keep on truckin Hedgehoggy...just wouldn't be the same w/o u partner..YEE HAW..
from smile4onlyu :
dont leave! i would be lost w/o u! i read u everyday and i cant wait to get on to see if u have written. dont leave...tear tear

i just farted.....i talk on the phone or bring the current novel....hummmm.....i miss ur old template.

hummm, when I poop I read a magazine...or I count the flowers on the wallpaper or a talk on the phone...hummm...
from nikep :
RE: Ninja Gaiden... I don't think I ever played that. I take it I'm missing out?? *next stop: funcoland*

*circling November 4 on calender* That ranks right up there with the day the Back to the Future trilogy DVD was released!

wow-my good hedgehoggy...nice ending to your entry today...yes, good luck in the morning w/getting aHEAD..haha

Ah, NES is fabulous! Mine is still in good working condition, and every once and a long while I whip it out for a good game of Duck Hunt or Zelda. Those controllers are the most long-lasting things ever! ;)
from nikep :
If you're really into wolvie, you're gonna absolutely LOVE X2. I don't mean to play it up like the best movie ever, but X2 producers take all the chances they were afraid to take in #1. They don't develop the stories of some characters as much as fans would like, I'm sure. (There was no explanation of the Wolvie/Yuriko aka Lady Deathstrike past at all.) In my opinion, Wolverine really shines in X2 (this is gonna be a long note. lol). Without giving too much away, Wolverine takes on more than a few guys at one time. The action was really well timed, and it's great to see Hugh Jackman finally get into the character and kick some real ass. Jackman's performance will make you think he could do a solo movie next. Wolvie was always the character I hated to love; rarely read his series, but always picked up back-issues when possible. I wanted to go see it again today, but SOMEbody didn't want to. Give her some hell for me, will ya? hehe ;)
from nikep :
It's good to know I'm not the only person spending their lovely Saturday doing laundry. But, I can't say my undies smell good enough for ebay... maybe a flea market, but even that's pushing it.
from lostincoma :
it's funny you mention clowns cuz me and my brother were talking about them yesterday. he said, "ya know, there are people that are actually scared of clowns?" and i said, "well they're scary! especially if you're alone in a dark room with them." and he said, "ok, if you're alone in a dark room with a clown, you got problems." it was hilarious (but only if you were there, lol).
from lostincoma :
i think it's interesting that college professors take longer to grade things than high school teachers. because it seems to me like college professors have more time, no? oh, and i'm with ya on teachers that just don't give a damn. it pisses me off when i show up and they don't even bother to. but that's the good thing about college: if you've got a pointless class with a stupid teacher...ya don't have to go. :)
from ellamason :
So you're from Champaign? Did you go to school out of town? I'm here at U of I. ;) Thanks for the birthday cheer! :D
from lostincoma :
i feel your frustration with the whole ant thing because at the moment, there are ants parading around in my SHOWER at home! i kid you not, i have to take showers with bugs when i go home on weekends. man, i never thought i'd rather use my dorm shower than the one at home...
from smile4onlyu :
i am watching u......
from lostincoma :
oh my god! my mom just borrowed bend it like beckham from a friend! i didn't know indian movies were POPULAR! i thought brown people were the only ones who could stand those things, lol.
from smile4onlyu :
hay! i just wanted to say that i am for the war too. my father is in the national gaurd and he is in nyc right now...its scary.and i am tired of people talking bad about the military and the pres. we voted for him. our people need to support our country. our support will make our soldiers fight harder. idk. just thought i would share. if u want read my diary for today....it is about my...silent statement.
from lostincoma :
wow! check out those kick ASS archives! *wink wink*
from lostincoma :
interesting porn entries. i have to admit, i've heard of piss drinking and shit eating, but tampon sucking?! that one threw me off a little. i know we pride ourselves in having sexual freedom, but guys...let's not get TOO creative here. i know most girls don't even like TOUCHING their own used feminine products, lol. oh well...whatever frosts your cookie. :)
from lost1985 :
Porn~umm, sucking tampons doesn't seem sexual to me...either does eating shit or drinking piss but hey...whatever floats your boat i guess, right?? glad the next entry wasn't as nasty...but, ummm, thx for the info...i guess?
from nikep :
Interesting entries! I didn't know the history behind porn. I agree with you, I'll never forget my first. lol. It was an 80's video all the way! My friend stole it from his dad's closet and brought it to my house to make copies. It became a fixture in my VCR for a good 2 years. *Sigh* ... the good ole days. ;)
from lostincoma :
ya know what's funny? one time i was in target and overheard these girls talking about the osbournes show, and one of 'em said, "omg, did you know ozzy's in a band?!" and the other one said, "yeah, i heard about that! i think he should stick to tv, though." it was damn freakin' hilarious....although a bit sad too, lol. i'm anticipating that porn entry...and i'll get a few updates in myself, sometime soon. :)
from nikep :
If you like movies that make you think, let me suggest Waking Life and Memento. I haven't seen Donnie Darko yet, but I've heard it's fantastic. ;)
from miss-edith :
Mix CD is on the way. Sorry about the delay. First the freeze really put the kibosh on the road test since I didn't really drive for a few days. Then I just extended the road test for a while for no good reason. Anyway. It is all done and on its way.
from lost1985 :
let me know how the Ringu went, my boyfriend and my roomate wanted to watch it, and i was going to see if i could find it to watch...give me your in put...okay? thx alot...
from lostincoma :
oh, and i'm glad you're feelin' better!
from lostincoma :
i have to agree with the freddie prinze thing; most girls i know adore him, but he looks weird to me. plus, he does his eyebrows. i dunno about guys that do their eyebrows...there's something unsettling about it...
from lostincoma :
i don't think britney realizes how empowering she could be if she was just more real. she's too busy worrying about the latest message her t-shirt gives off. and you're right: the t.a.t.u. girls really aren't lesbians, it's an act. supposedly, they both have boyfriends, too. but i still like them for stating and acting out something that's such a strong video. it may just be acting, but it's an artistic way of making a good point. man, you've inspired me with this entry...i might just have to write one of my own now... :)
from smile4onlyu :
thx for the note....i love supportive ppl. boy kissing? maybe u should start the trend? ha ha
from smile4onlyu :
hay the song goes...wont u be my neighbor? not be mine....he he i loved that show! i think the girls should be able to kisws too....go lesbians go...one of my really good friends is a lezbian...ok have a nice day:)
from lost1985 :
thx, for the note...my grandmother's dog...who's dead now...use to lick my toes...it tickles!! hehe...yea, it's just some quiz i found, i don't think i'm like beer...i don't even drink that often...i'm so crazy...ps-sorry about bad hair cut lady...sounds like a bitch!
from lost1985 :
just to let you know...i don't think it's wrong if your dog licks your toes and you enjoy it...okay?
from lostincoma :
first of all, you're tellin' me about these trying economic times. try living through the dreaded texas budget cut that's on everyone's minds, cutting state school budgets (like mine) left and right. second, it's funny you mentioned kenny chesney cuz my roommate loves him. apparently, she got tix to his concert, too. damn country fans, lol. third, i've seen garbage and no doubt in concert, and they both kick some major ass. get this: shirley manson actually ripped her pants on stage and the band improved random songs while she went backstage and changed! it was great. fourth, thanks for the grammy entry props. :) and finally, lmao...yes, i think it is a bit weird if you get excited when your dog licks your toes. see a doctor...now. :)
from spicychicken :
hey, thanks for listing my diary as a favorite! glad you enjoy it. i'll be checking out yours..
from lostincoma :
there was an article in our newspaper about an art class that draws nude models, and i soooo wanna try it. i think i could muster up enough courage to pose nude for strangers, but the only thing i'm worried about is spotting someone i know in the class, lol.
from lostincoma :
well, i can't say i share your v-day woes; i just looked at the forecast, and it's supposed to get up to the 70s on friday. madness, no?
from smile4onlyu :
i just wanted to say that i hope everything gets better. dont be sad. there are so many people that have it worse then we do...but i do hope all is well.
from lost1985 :
i just abosolutly LOVE your journal! i can't wait for a new entry...addicted is what you'd call it...it's so nice to see it from a guy's perspective...i love ur journal!
from miss-edith :
If you tell me where to send it, it will come. . . Feel free to show my entry to your friend. It was a very one-off kind of thing though, not particularly coherent or even particularly original. Plus, in the interests of space saving (I know it's hard to believe), it is, by necessity, rather simplistic. So don't talk it up too much before you show it!
from lostincoma :
not only do i get annoyed by people who wanna ban something just cause THEY don't like it, i also think that just because you don't agree with something doesn't mean you shouldn't expose yourself to it. that's where the problem is in the first place; so many people claim to be against this or that, but they don't even know what it's really about because they've censored themselves from learning about it. it's like showing a documentary on the kkk; i don't agree with their philosophy, but i'd watch it just to gain more insight into how they think. i really believe people should stop getting offended by so many things and just open their minds up to *knowledge*. it's all a learning experience, when it comes down to it.
from miss-edith :
Aw, you had to know that Sloane wasn't going anywhere. He's Ron Rifkin! He's second in the credits! He's eeeeevil. . .

i actually still haven't fully figured out donnie darko, even after the second viewing. but i love jenna malone, and (even better!) noah wyle (the teacher that gives donnie the time traveling book). *sigh* he's so gorgeous...ooops, that's me being shallow once again... :)

AEROSMITH KICKS ASS!!!!
from lostincoma :
i love the neverending story song! it used to be like, my favorite song when i was a kid, and that movie kicks SO much ass! that evil wolf thing always scared the shit outta me!
from lostincoma :
i agree with the jack and kelly thing: their parents really need to kick 'em out or something. i'd still go to school, no matter how rich my parents were, because i can't imagine having their lives and just sitting around doing nothing intellectually stimulating. they best go back to school. i mean, what else is gonna save them when their fame goes away? they need something to at least fall back on, ya know?
from lostincoma :
welcome back, mike! glad you had a good time. and i'm proud of you for taking your first plance trip alone. can't wait to see pictures!
from lostincoma :
and a happy new year to you too, mike!
from lostincoma :
good luck up there in our neighbor to the north. :) can't wait to hear all about it.
from nikep :
Bill Maher IS great. I'm really anticipating his new show on HBO. I'm going to have my mom tape all the episodes and send it to me... yes, I'm that addicted. I hope it's like PI with no commercials and fewer mood shifts- they always changed topics too abruptly.
from nikep :
Thanks for agreeing ;) Yeah, Bill Maher put it quite well when he said someone shouldn't be taken out of the light by by an oligarchy for something he said. Hell, that's what happened to him and PI. Now, if that person is voted out of the spot light, that's a different story. Yeah, I voted for Nader in our school's mock election (I was a weee 17 year old) and to my Democratic step-father, you'd think I shot his toe off or something. lol. I don't think I'll ever hear the end of it.

dude, how could you not include any garbage or smashing pumpkins songs?! although your list is a list of LOVE songs, so i'd understand why those may not fit. i forgive you. :) j/k
from lostincoma :
hell yeah girls can play too! although i'm not the best example of this, as i suck at both the guitar AND the bass. they say it's cuz i have small hands...goddamn genetic limitations...
from lostincoma :
hmm...mario...big nostrils...i feel an entry comin' on... :)
from lostincoma :
gaaaahhh!!! *screams for the ninja turtles theme song*
from lostincoma :
i love "parade"...then again, i love every garbage song, so that doesn't really mean anything, lol.
from lostincoma :
nice list, i agree with most of your choices, especially nelly, fiona, michelle, christina, madonna, and the best on of all, shirley manson. i liked her with long red/orange hair better, though. those were the days when i aspired to look like her, back when i was young and stupid (wow, that just made me sound really old, lol). and thanks for the t-shirt search advice; i've been advised by many to look in hot topic, although everytime i go, i don't find anything. wouldn't hurt to try again, though. :) thanks.
from lostincoma :
"life is not a dress size!" it sure as hell isn't. i like that quote. :)
from lostincoma :
i agree: instead of EVER mentioning the jocks that provoked the shooters to revolt, the media slammed marilyn manson, leading into the disapproval of tv, video games, music, and anything else that was violent at the time. it's just ridiculous. to find the source of the shootings, don't look far; look at the VICTIMS themselves. geezz...i could go on forever about this one.
from fluffykatt :
Ooohh, my my, I enjoy your diary! Tons of fun...keep up the crustiness! ^_~
from lostincoma :
feelin' da luv...i enjoy talkin' to you too. and i gotta agree with you on garbage - they rock, especially "i'm only happy when it rains". :)
from lostincoma :
i've only read one stephen king book - misery, and i loved it like none other! it's gotta be one of the most entertaining books i've read. the way he writes is just sooo cool and ungeneric. i'd read more if there weren't so many stupid government and journalism textbooks on my list ahead of it. grrr...

I cannot resist reminding you of my favorite C&H... Hobbes is in the washing machine and when Calvin opens the door, Hobbes tells him to cut it out because it makes everything stop. Calvin sits dejectedly on the washing machine and says, "I wish my bathtub had an agitator."

haven't seen the mtv awards yet, but i'm looking forward to it. wow, eminem got booed? who woulda thought...i'll definitely offer up my commentary on the show after i see it this weekend. until then, have a kick ass (and alcohol-filled!) birthday!
from lostincoma :
let's see...not NEW clothes...but kinda nice...does that count?! thanks, hedgehoggy. i'm sure dorm life will be somewhat painful for me, but i'll get through it, just like i've gotten through everything else up to now. classes start today, but i'll try to keep posting as often as i can. lostincoma will never fade!
from nikep :
Ho Damn! That sounds like a great night. Did you catch Garbage on tour last spring? I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to see both the Pumpkins and Garbage in the same night...
from lostincoma :
wow...garbage and the pumpkins...at the same CONCERT?!?! that would be the ultimate DREAM for me, they're two of my most favorite bands ever. i just saw garbage in concert, and they kicked ass, but sadly, i never got the chance to see the pumpkins. :( oh well...at least the music lives on. :)
from lostincoma :
aaaaaahhhh!!! saved by the bell was the coolest show ever! although i was more of a zack fan, myself, hehe. and i think the proper word to describe belding would be ignorant, lol.
from lostincoma :
yes, i'll admit it: i cheated in high school. i even got caught for it once. but the main reason i did it is cuz a lotta the stuff we were tested on just seemed too pointless to spend hours studying. i cheated because i believed learning all the stupid stuff was a waste of my time...and i still believe that and stand by what i did. i'm so bad. :)
from saint-louise :
Just wandered in briefly from Peas-Tonight's guestbook, and I have to ask: what is it that you find so "foul" about the Koran? It's a curious thing to say without any explanation.
from lostincoma :
don't give up on diaryland. i know it sucks when all you seem to read are stupid peoples' diaries (sometimes, i surf random diaries and find the same thing), but you don't have to fit in with them to stay on diaryland. just do ya own thing and stay true to yourself, and you'll feel a lot more satisfied than those "idiots" who portray fakeness and write entries with no substantial content.
from lostincoma :
i totally agree with you on wishing the world was more into learning. nicely put. ironically, i was just about to write an entry about that, so you can go read mine, if ya like. :)
from lostincoma :
"Here I was painting today in the laundry room and I just wanted to mount the washer and dryer." lol, that's hilarious...and disturbing at the same time. i'm sorry about your friend, hope you're holdin' up ok. and thanks for leavin' me a note. i agree that if one of those brands happened to offer me a necessity that the other brands didn't, i'd probably go with it and not mind advertising it. but otherwise, nothing about abercrombie, old navy, etc. sets them apart from other, non-promotional brands.
from lostincoma :
lol, yes, girls are definitely confusing, even to ourselves. :) i don't HATE girls, but if i had to choose, i'd rather have guy friends than girl ones. i've always gotten along better with guys, and...well, guys just aren't as judgemental as girls. guys are more laid back and less dramatic. i can't stand when girls make a big deal outta something stupid (although since i'm a girl, i do that sometimes, lol). and because girls are judgemental, i feel more uncomfortable around them. weird, huh?
from lostincoma :
i agree with you that mtv2 should be on basic cable. i'd give up my mtv for a channel that actually DID play music, ya know? and i also agree that anyone can look sexy just by holding a guitar. :)
from lostincoma :
hahaha...the "fun" in "dysfunctional".....lol, i get it. good one, man. :)
from lostincoma :
i liked your recent entries. i too often wonder why people read my diary and if they're getting the same message that i meant to put out there in the first place. maybe they see something in my words that i never saw or never meant to express. it's interesting. also, your most recent entry about what men are supposed to be like. umm...as a woman, i really have no expectations when it comes to men, just as i'm sure men don't have any when it comes to women (RIGHT?!?! hehe). some girls may say that a man has to be interesting, not completely dull, but i personally think that any man who can just be himself is interesting. there's nothing more attractive than a person who's real and true to themselves, right? ttyl.

i just watched donnie darko a week ago, and it was definitely an interesting movie. i still can't figure out if i like it, but i do like how it was different from other movies. the funny thing is, i thought it was gonna be this scary movie, but it turned out to be nothing of the kind...except for that damn creepy bunny, lol. jenna malone is an awesome actress (and very intelligent judging from interviews i've read about her), and so is noah wyle (who was also in the movie). hmm...wish he had a bigger role in the movie. ;)

thanks for the props, hedgehoggy. :) i love to rant like none other, and i'm glad to have found someone who appreciates it as much as i do. :) as for the whole girlfriend thing...i dunno. DO we all need someone else in order to feel complete? maybe. all i know is that before i found love (or love found me, hehe), there were definitely times when i was happy in life. i never felt like there was anything missing. then again, i didn't KNOW love before then, so why would i miss it? so i dunno, it depends more on the person, i think. anyway, have fun on your trip, and i'll be lookin' forward to more entries when you get back. :)

i hate most rappers too. i mean, granted they can live however they wanna live, i don't really agree with havin' a mansion for one person and cars for little kids that can't even drive yet (lil bow wow). if that's how they wanna live, then fine, but what really bugs me is how monotonous all the videos look. they're all the same! half naked girls, phat cars and bling bling. it's so stupid. that's why i like some rappers, like outkast, busta rhymes, and eminem; they're at least more creative and don't rap about the same things all the time. they concentrate on bein' more original instead of tryin' to show off to the world how much bling they be blingin'. good rant. god knows i could go on for pages about this topic. :)

"vin diesel armed little shit"...lol. anywayz yeah, i was readin' teen people, and that's where i got the coed sleepover thing. good call. :) oh and i like the new pink video too...it's so...not pink! lol. she seems a little disturbed, but i kinda like the song and her outfits are pretty cute (but not in an "omg, i soooo wanna buy that and wear it to school!" way, lol). and as for the hookin' up thing? sorry myhappiness, but i'm taken. good try though, hehe. :)
from myhappiness2 :
You & lostinacoma should get together..hehehehe..Anyway, just stoped in to say you're great at sharing tales..& then some.

ATARIS!!! i soooo want an atari. i only played donkey kong on snes, but an atari or ANYthing old school would be really cool. i like to kick it old school. :) anywayz, thanks for the note and the props. i'm glad at least some people understood that entry, lol. and there's nothing wrong with vin disel arms. i was just sayin' you're not necessarily ugly if you DON'T have 'em. you're only ugly if i say you are, lol j/k. ttyl.
from lostincoma :
omg, donkey kong's the BEST!!! lol, that was my fave game when i was younger, and i haven't played it in years. i soooo wanna go out and buy an snes and get a dk game for like, five bucks. hehe...

hedgehoggy, you are 100 percent sweet and sensitive, FAR far from cruel and vindictive. and you will remain that way as long as you don't listen to those damn nuns. :) ok, i'm out (sorry i've signed this so much, btw, but i'd like you to know that i'm NOT a hardcore feminist, nor will i turn down any comments you may make about my diary, hehe. you have the right to your opinion, dude).
from lostincoma :
oh, and i also wanted to say that i love your name. it's really cute (yeah, i know guys don't usually wanna be considered "cute", but i just had to say it, hehe). and thanks for droppin' me a note, i felt very loved. :) i'll be checkin' up on your diary, so keep up the good work. :)
from lostincoma :
hey, i enjoyed checkin' out your diary. i like how you're a guy, yet you still show your feelings and so much insight into who you are. sure, it's considered more of a feminine thing, but i admire you for it. i only wish more guys would be like this. keep up the good work, dude.
from hedgehoggy :
Hi, this is peas, hanging out in your diary. I changed some stuff, I got rid of that stupid <P that was by your guestbook. That always made me crazy, so I cut it out. I arcived your entries, and did a few other things, just for fun. I just wanted you to have something new and fun to look at and play with while I mess with your diary. I have more time at night, so I'll make a lot more changes then. Right now I'm just wondering around beautify, trying to find something cool. Anyway, I just thought I'd keep you updated.
