from muppet23 :
Rather excited for a comeback (repressing high-pitched giggles). You know I'd love to travel to the other website to read your shtuff but it's so much easier to wait until your name turns red. I'm not lazy, just visual.
from euphoria21 :
"Love in this city? It drips out of the air conditioners on the third floor, and crumples on the sidewalk. You’ll see it bounce on toes, staring at a bassist with her eyes closed. It swirls with ice and scotch in a lounge on the Upper East side. A man at a restaurant sits alone, looking for it between pages of a book." OMG I've missed reading you!!!! You and the29th are the only reason I still pass by here. I see you haven't been around much either.
from strawberrri :
hi there :)
from euphoria21 :
I haven't been by in quite a while but I still miss reading up on you. Glad to see you writing.
from muppet23 :
Cannot really believe it's been nearly a month since I first replied to the great ellipsis. I suck and I do apologize most sincerely. I've been about where you have been lately, or so it seems... shuffling around.
from euphoria21 :
You never cease to amaze me. So when are you moving? You already put in the deposit, right?!?
from schmutzie :
So, you're back! I remember many moons ago there was some kind of goodbye, but I looked through your archives, and you've been back for a while. Nice to see you.
from euphoria21 :
So does that mean no more diaryland for you? Because I would miss it. You're not even on myspace or anything?
from euphoria21 :
So, busy with Metroblogging are we? Glad you finally mentioned where you've been spending your time. I was in NY since the 22nd of December and came back last night. Wish I could've seen ya!
from euphoria21 :
Happy New Years Cowboy!
from euphoria21 :
You've been gone for a long minute. Hope you're doing well. Are you still in NY or are you leaving? I remember talk of some college somewhere else and that would suck. I'm going to New York on the 22nd until Jan 1st. Take care cowboy, miss you!
from parabolish :
Has Rebecca told you about the Irish whisky tasting and holiday party yet? Both at her place, December 3rd (this Sat), 7-9 for the whisky, 9-whenever for the party. One bottle and some knowledge about your bottle of Irish whisky gets you in the door at 7, or just come and play at 9. Or call me and we can get together or something, 'cause you're fun to see.
from radiogurl :
Are you all right? It's been an awfully long time since an update. Hopefully that means your life has taken a dramatic upswing, you've won the lottery and are involved in a passionate love affair with a beautiful lady. If so, we want details! ;)
from parabolish :
Fantastic to see you this weekend! Thanks for staying so long to play. Whee!
from euphoria21 :
Miss you dearly, hope you are doing well Cowboy! xoxo
from mcjesyka :
I didn't die. ha.
from parabolish :
Jon! Writing to let you know about the TWT Halloween party. Sunday the 30th at Swing46. I'll be there, and hope to see you as well. Look for the panda.
from parabolish :
Hey babe, sorry I missed seeing you this weekend. Party was fabulous, afterparty went til 8 am, I caught the 1 pm Chinatown bus home. I'm aiming to get northerly more often in the next few months (plenty of parties with the holidays coming), so I hope to catch you soon.
from euphoria21 :
I had the longest bus/train/metromover ride of my life, included with a bomb threat and all and I read your entire entry. If it wasn't for the fact that I printed it out I would've been so bored.
from euphoria21 :
*grinning* I'm so glad you're back, no where have you been. I'm going to print it out and read it on the bus on my way home. xoxoxo
from euphoria21 :
This is not good - I miss you Cowboy. Come back.
from blueavenue :
what's up with the disappearing act? buh-ring it.
from radiogurl :
Have you been sucked into the netherworld of daytime television? Jonquill, where art though, oh cowboy of the sublimely absurd that is the city?
from euphoria21 :
"Come out, come out wherever you are, Cowboy" Are you hiding again?
from euphoria21 :
"So many seem like they own this city, and I’m still renting." - Cowboy, I'm not sure how you do it but it probably has something to do with your diet that consists mainly of Cheerios and beer, and an occasionally steak at a swank little bistro, but there goes your 'one-liner' for that last entry.
from orgami :
brrrrrr clunk clunk humm buzzzzzzzzzzzz Air conditioner fires up fans rotate on ceiling blinds drawn and like a cave cooled with some sweetness we sit on the couch and lay on the floor watching Canadian cable television Jerry Springer Judge Judy Judge Joe Brown when my honey sleeps I watch history channel without the air we would be baking like dogs on a vendors cart rolling this way and that on sweat soaked sheets feeling our body heat radiating from the cotten linens and polyester weave matress beneath a thin sheen of clammy moisture reminding me of my homeless adventures in the park not showering for weeks in the summer heat under trees benchs boxes feeling like a space man in a space suit my identity my personal protection my shell against the odds and elements the cooling rain sizzling on hot tarmac and hot breath of exhaust from traffic traffic traffic the sqeal of ambulances and the howl of police and fire units the heat making the sane mad and the mad sane
from euphoria21 :
*Blushing* You're back cowboy, oh man have I got stories for you...well not really, but if I had any you'd be the first I'd tell. Been partying at the strip clubs a lot lately, not even sure why. Maybe because I'm a girl I get all my lap dances for free but anyways...I've missed you! I'm going to NY again from Dec 22 until Jan 1st!! Hope to bump into you in Brooklyn for a few drinks!!!
from euphoria21 :
There you go again with those fantqastic disappearing acts. I miss you, cowboy... :(
from euphoria21 :
Where do I begin??? "I have my principles, about three of them left, but this one I stick by.","Throw in a little course language, and a little less bleeding and you have ninety percent of the arguments I’ve had with women over the years.","My luck, I’ll get a lard-ass. At least there’s ass involved. Oh man, did that come out wrong." BRILLIANT, cowboy.
from euphoria21 :
Muah, have fun in Boston, cowboy!
from euphoria21 :
Just passing thru...miss ya! ;8^)
from euphoria21 :
A shot of Jager would do me just fine right about now. Happy early Cinco de Mayo. Vive Cuervo!!
from euphoria21 :
*Tapping lightly on computer screen* "Um, excuse me, if you see Cowboy, can you please tell him that some people around here are missing his quirky anecdotes of life, he can't continue doing this to us or we will be forced to sign a petition to make him write at least 2-3 times a week if necessary. Um, thanks" "Oh, and another thing, can you tell him it's his turn to buy the next round. Ah, yeah...okay, thanks" :)
from euphoria21 :
Ah, nothing like sipping on some tepid coffee in the morning and reading a story that evidentally/eventually will have remnant shards of "crack" dependancy issues. Oh, and I figured, depending on what kind of squirrels we're talking about they actually live pretty long 25-35 years. Not bad-for a furry rat!!!
from mcjesyka :
that fucking "." between "oftheatlantic" and "users" should be a fucking "/" I'm a fucktard.
from mcjesyka :
I'm sorry that I haven't been posting. You should read my livejournal, to know what it's really about. -www.livejournal.com/users.oftheatlantic- And you need to comment, ho. love, love, love, Jesyka
from blueavenue :
jonny-boy! i tried to leave a comment, but it no workie. so anyway. HA. the part about they must've been imported by the parks department. lol. that was good. and the mom-mom and pop-pop. i was seriously cracking up. awesome.
from euphoria21 :
"Thank you sir, may I have another." - I know you're talking about alcohol, but I still laught because the only times I manage to say those exact words are when I'm on all fours waiting for the paddle to swiftly lunge at my ass. I miss those days. :)
from euphoria21 :
What wre you drinking? Are you kidding me? Late nights are always compensated because of nookie...ALWAYS!!! And don't you forget it, Mister.
from euphoria21 :
Nevermind Spam, I just checked your second to last entry and it's there. Oh joy!
from euphoria21 :
This is the second time for the past two entries that I leave you a note in the "editors" comments section and it doesn't show. I am truly disturbed about this. :(
from euphoria21 :
So, I see the 'cowboy' name has quickly caught on..well at least to one other person...thanks muppet23
from euphoria21 :
I miss you, cowboy!
from ophelia :
I couldn't very well have you watching fear factor now, could i?
from connie-cobb :
Aww, you added me as a favorite! I add you!
from muppet23 :
That's funny, still doesn't work for me... =(
from muppet23 :
Grrrrrr... don't know what's up with the commenting, but it still will not allow me to leave a message! I had more written, but just so you know, I really like the Tiffany addition!! p.s. Blue is referring to your ellipsis.
from euphoria21 :
Let's hear it for the camp RA. I love that nickname. In High School they called me and some of our friends "Pop Tarts", because we're 'toasted and fruity'!!!
from blueavenue :
hey hey. i finally found it. ask muppet what i found. she knows. =)
from muppet23 :
Can I please take the Cowboy credit?? I know, it fits him not, but there IS a story behind it. Only problem, Euphoria, is that it's not an interesting one. At all. Even remotely. But even as I type this, I giggle... So I suppose it's interesting to a slightly morid extent...
from time2 :
sure, just tell me where to drop it. I do have to warn you though, my diary is like televised golf, it is merely for the aide of sleep.
from euphoria21 :
I wonder why 'Spam'? But I bet the story alone would make it worthwhile! ;) (hint, hint)
from euphoria21 :
"It’s good to be clean. Kind of like being God. Except not at all." Seems like you had a fun-filled weekend...
from euphoria21 :
Muah!!! Been missing you cowboy. I just thought of something. I wonder why in your stand up act you've never brought up the clear FACT that certain people call you "cowboy", and have you ever wondered why, or when did it all start. It would make for a great story somehow, I know you can make it milk-coming-out-of-your-nose funny...think about it. Did your parents ever call you by nicknames that weren't even remotely close to your personality?? Let it marinade...
from euphoria21 :
Bravo, cowboy. Bravo.
from euphoria21 :
I had this written on your notes, but I guess it was too long (thank God I cut-and-pasted it)...*Sigh of relief* Hey, space cowboy, you'd gone and done that disappearing trick that I oh-so-loathe. Glad to hear you're on stage. First I'd like to wish you to "break a leg" and don't go missing like that. I was about to start calling New York City Troopers, cops on horses, telling the Ferry to stop running and getting a leprechaun search party (they have a thing for Albino Cowboys) -who knew. So no more of that *poof* act. Okay? Luv ya, miss ya. Hope to get to New York soon.
from blueavenue :
heLLO?? 14 days=too long. where'd ya GO? i suddenly pictured myself calling 'helloooo' off a big canyon, hands cupped for maximum acoustics. and then the echo: o-o-o-o-o-o-o...HEH.
from muppet23 :
You've been gone so long, Amy fraid I've forgotten!
from muppet23 :
Amy!
from euphoria21 :
"In the day time Vegas looks like a girl making the walk of shame. All bright neon flushed out by slammiing rays of sun. At night she wakes up again to join the circus." - well done, darling. Missed you. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
from muppet23 :
Knock, knock...
from euphoria21 :
muah, xoxoxoxoxoxo...missed you
from shannonkitty :
May I presume that both you and your relationship survived Monday?
from euphoria21 :
The only good thing about Valentines this year was that I did my taxes. Luv ya!!
from euphoria21 :
Happy Valentine's Day cowboy...muah xoxoxo
from shannonkitty :
Thought I sounded worse than it came across. That's good I guess. Having no money sucks, although being stuck at home can have its advantages. Um, if a relationship hinges on a V-Day gift, it ain't worth it. Not that I'm passing judgement, cause I'm not. Just saying. The whole "holiday" is a scam; relationships are fraught with insecurity anyway. Why add to that by putting so much stress on one day of the year and trying to outdo not only the memory of previous relationships but also every friend in a relationship? Goofy, but then this is coming from a girl whose V-day gift was to give back the .75 carat engagement ring several years ago. The cat is better, thanks for asking; drugs are working. Went to a bridal shower Saturday, but only b/c of my friendship with the bride-to-be. Hate those things, weddings too. *sigh* Lonely at work, can you tell?
from shannonkitty :
Forgive me for the stress-induced pity party?
from blueavenue :
sup. you added me. thanks! now write more often. k bye.
from shannonkitty :
Enough then of the serious and philosophical. This medium forces those conversations to be abbreviated and without due justice. And I fear I occupy too much of the valuable space. Oh, and a cat would likely have prevented the purchasing of poison.
from shannonkitty :
I see nothing random about the application (or lack thereof) of either. My insecurity - or is it heightened sensitivity? - superimposes a pattern that may be solely in my imagination. "If [we] define a situation as real, it is real in its consequences."
from shannonkitty :
It's sunny, 71 degrees outside. Quite out of the ordinary, as if an unscheduled karmic shift were afoot (or aloft). The bag query was a rather pitiful attempt at playfulness. I think I lost my A-game somewhere.
from shannonkitty :
Let's just say that Webster won't be calling you up with a screaming child anytime soon. Paper bag? Adorned how? Me? I'm ISO distractions. I'm not quite as productive as I typically would be sequestered in my office. Of course the gorgeous weather outside isn't helping as I stare longingly out my window...

from shannonkitty :
Not that you think the world revolves around you or anything like that. But I do appreciate the imagery. Try not to fall asleep and fall forward into the corner; the textured impression of the wall will likely be unflattering.
from shannonkitty :
I demand you extricate yourself from the corner. Miscommunication clarified; underlying sentiment understood and appreciated. And shall I say it's taking a good bit of willpower not to comment on the "wee little being" line.
from shannonkitty :
You unintentionally made me smile. Simon is our 8 year old orange tabby cat. I guess I thought you understood that I had been on the phone with his vet all day Thurs and then had to take him to a new doctor Friday.
from shannonkitty :
My Simon was diagnosed with lymphoma this afternoon. We started chemo today with a hope that we caught it in time for him to have a good quality of life for a while yet. I've been vascillating between anger and sadness...
from shannonkitty :
I have no doubt of your ability to seek out necessities in any circumstance. If I find myself in such a quandry, I may in fact request your assistance. It may require smoke signals since I'm typically without internet access when traveling, but occasionally I'm creative. --Enjoy the time off. I'm about to subject myself to a boring hour long meeting then rush to spend the afternoon with the chief of internal medicine at the vet hospital. Perhaps it won't be as bad as it sounds.
from shannonkitty :
From crayola to Will Smith. It is indeed a Friday. And I suspect that regardless of where I went I could find trouble if I wanted to.
from shannonkitty :
Not Delaware; Philly in March and August. The meeting in NY got moved to Miami in October.
from shannonkitty :
do you think mensa will mind i completed the application in crayon?
from jonquill :
Please frighten me not with the knowledge that my ramblings, more rife with faux-intellegencia inspired riffs than your average college rock station, constitute a high point in discource for any day. I beg thee here and now to go forth into the barren suburban landscape, seek out a local drinkery and start conversation with the man who's been playing darts by himself quietly for an hour and a half. He's the most intellegent person in the room, and dwarfs my puny conversational member with ease.
from shannonkitty :
ok, now my page does work. really, it does. off to engage in interaction at the gym and then watch a rather pitiful example of men's college basketball otherwise known as my alma mater.
from shannonkitty :
i still think we agree more than we disagree. my point on not engaging locally because it is too painful is an example of the amplification of interactions in a small community. and on a related point, this is the most interesting dialogue i've had all day (if you don't count the male vet having to apologize profusely over the phone and calling me ma'm several times through clinched teeth). you know, your [writing] talents could be used for good (and evil) in other places. although i am biased as an academic.
from jonquill :
My theorum up for the skeet is that even in a rural or suburban environment social interactions are occuring at a high paced clip. They may not be as plentiful as those in a bustling metropolis, but that alone actually maginfies them. Where as a city-dweller may not mind a mis-picked word/phrase/story as their audience may well dissappear into the churning throng, in a closer nit community social interactions, even small ones are far more weighty. Still, I could just be giving you shit.
from shannonkitty :
i think the point of disagreement here is not about the subtlety of interaction and the infinite opportunities to watch, learn, and engage. it is more that i have to work harder to find those opportunities simply because of location...of course, i may have chosen the location so i didn't have to interact except when i wanted to so the causality is questionable. i'd love to say my work revolved around actually *studying* people's interactions. my work revolves around figuring out how to test theories of interaction with secondary data. i like to go to new places and people watch simply because it allows me to see the interactions without the veil of normalcy. it's too painful to watch close to home b/c then i get caught up in how i reproduce that which i see and do not like.
from jonquill :
Well, one so emmersed in social interaction should then realize the mass amount that surrounds you on any given day: supermarket, resturant, bar, street corner, playground. Social activity abounds, even in places where it might seem subdued under a vail of indifference. I don't think there are too many that would disaggree with the thinking that some of the most profound interactions are subtle in nature. One simply must make themselves available to view them.
from shannonkitty :
exactly my point! you get to experience (albeit still slightly vicariously) real drama/news/horror. the crap on tv is basically that, crap. i have my guilty pleasures but generally read about other people's experiences. as i sit and think about it, one difference is the urban environment that allows (forces?) you to engage with others where my suburb allows me to disengage. funny, and i'm the one that studies people's interactions for a living.
from jonquill :
Just because I don't get my vicarious jollies out of the internet does not mean I can't find them elsewhere. Though generally they come from the arguing couple on the opposite end of the bar from me. Far better drama than the OC.
from shannonkitty :
how deprived! or free to experience life rather than live it vicariously, if you prefer.
from jonquill :
Can't check e-mail from work and I have no internet at home. The world you see around you...my only release.
from shannonkitty :
i thought i had it working...argh! fancy statistics, no problem. following clear directions for online resources, not so much. email?
from jonquill :
Page no workie...point of reference, neither does my spelling.
from shannonkitty :
true enough, anonymity provides cover where personal interaction cannot. and you can respond to my page now (or you should be able to...)
from euphoria21 :
and "myself" even...wow
from euphoria21 :
I had actually sent the note to myslef - coffee very bad...You poor, poor thing...random note...you should've never given her that Angelina poster (shame on you, when you know now that there is a very deserving lesbian in Miami that's willing to take it!) Be a man about it, you made your bed, now you must lie in it. Angelina will do that to people. Isn't she wonderful!! Oh, the face with the bad combover - hilarious
from jonquill :
Aninimoty and the safety found when there can be no reprisal; these are most often disguised as courage.
from shannonkitty :
this idea of a public private conversation is fascinating...i'm amazed at how the communication of one's innermost thoughts to a general or specific other is so simple in this kind of forum but so difficult when face-to-face. the courage it takes to set your writing free [online] is different from the courage it takes to share those same thoughts with the people they are about. although there's something to be said for confidence in general. anyway, i digress.
from euphoria21 :
Now I actually say it and know that I'm not a complete liar...you are #1 on my list, and not just metaphorically speaking. *go look at my profile*
from euphoria21 :
You are the best!!! Did you know that? :-)
from euphoria21 :
Now, this was your answer..."Maybhe I did, and maybe I didn't", now go look at my question. WOW! You just didn't make any sense - at all. I still love you though. xoxo

Now I have this impending picture of you in my head wearing a fedora with a light blue flower, a scarf and Daisy Dukes...ugh, that can't be healthy.
from euphoria21 :
"It is thanks to my romantic inabilities that it has been nearly a decade since I’ve regularly worn a hat." You have this thing that will always keep me glued and anxiously waiting for the next entry. I do hope that when I decide to make my stay at New York a permanent one that my company will be welcomed either at the bar/pub/pizza shack/bookstore/coffehouse. You can tell your friends I'm "just a fan". xoxo You know what I've been wanting to ask of you to write about one day just for my own personal knowledge, and only because I know you'd do a great job at describing it..if you remember the first time you said you were sorry and actually meant and finally understood why you felt soo bad. Did I make sense at all? If not, let me know. I'll rephrase it. Laterz...

Well?! Wheeeere is it??
from muppet23 :
I require a faster connection than ACK! 26.4 kbp!!!! Must go home...
from mcjesyka :
Ha, I forgive you, either way. It's almost Christmas, and it's so exciting. I don't really care about the whole Christmas ordeal, I just love the weather, and the atmosphere. I'm getting sick, but I don't care, just as long as we get snow this year.
from muppet23 :
New ellipsey banter provided purely for my own confessional type reasons...
from muppet23 :
ACK - take my comments offa there! lol
from muppet23 :
I have commented and even (small gasp of horror) CRITIQUED...
from euphoria21 :
“Are you on the pot?”-There it is. Wonderful!!
from euphoria21 :
...but seriously now folks, let's all give jonquill a hand. Applaud the man of the hour for he might just stop writing if you don't - sorry, I was thinking of some old 40's movie and you came to mind, unfortunately the name of the movie didn't...crikey
from muppet23 :
I continue the discontinued commenting concurently...
from euphoria21 :
Muah...just passing by and decided to give you a Holiday Kiss!! :)
from mcjesyka :
And McJesyka. Even though she never gets a post back. Gr. What is your e-mail address, by the way?
from euphoria21 :
Seems like your fan club is made up basically of "muppet23". Well at least she knows how good you are. Smart girl
from muppet23 :
Ah, a reply has been dutifully posted... Now finish up your last franc's worth of banter before I take your pimpled ass to court...
from muppet23 :
Hey! Yeah, where's the other three francs worth!? =) If that keeps you going, I've got like another 20 francs just waiting to be spent...
from euphoria21 :
Are you kidding me??? Just because for the first time I didn't put in my favorite "one liner" doesn't mean it wasn't there. "I’m the hero. That’s the story. That’s what happened. What you saw. I’m the nice guy. I’m the man. I’m the man who would never think to write his number. Probably shouldn't. I'm the man who did try to smile on the path, but ended up looking at his shoes. I’m the nice guy. I’m the hero. That’s the story." It's just that this time it was longer, way longer than just one line... ;^)
from muppet23 :
I paid five francs for that?? Wait, I paid five francs for that and didn't get one comment referenced in my flowery scent?! Seriously, though, can I reply in the comments section of that e-mail/entry?
from euphoria21 :
Your last entry about the stripper was well written. I loved it, I miss it when you don't write.
from blueavenue :
i just skipped thru a few entries and found myself thinking you've got a really interesting way of saying things. cool. and there was some really great alliteration in your entry about the christmas tree. i love me some alliteration. =) take care.
from muppet23 :
Good mislead, My Dear, most definitely. Perhaps you can introduce me to this swinging spot and your obviously infamous 'nice guy' motif if I dare change my mind! Cannot remember what your last words of advice were the other night...
from muppet23 :
It is weird - I wasn't sure, at first, if you were playing pool, poker or pussy control (come on, hadda keep with the p's). I always had a good time myself, but it largely depends on the company...
from muppet23 :
Your FIRST strip joint, eh? =) So timid... Too cute...
from muppet23 :
Tried to download it on winMX, but it's not so readily available... It just makes me think of how often things <have> to end in anger or frustration, though it's the last thing we want.
from muppet23 :
That changes things quite a bit...
from muppet23 :
John delivering a piece of 'odd' writing - never. =) Yeah, spinning. Oozing with curiosity, dizzy with wonder, wrapped in blankets of inquisitiveness, scaling the tree of question (need I go on?).
from muppet23 :
Why thank you, Sir. I cannot help but notice that it's been a few days since YOUR last entry (you haven't been practising any 'night therapy' in internet cafes, have you?). P.S. You have me SPINNING about that other blog, damn it...
from ophelia :
sharing is caring.
from areistia :
flamingo? or flamanco?
from muppet23 :
Surprised? Well, it's good to know the fine female species can still shove a shocker into your game once in a while, Misseur.
from blueavenue :
where did you move here from? i moved from texas, been here 2 and 1/2 years. ah, time flies. i'm gonna read some more later...
from muppet23 :
Indeed, I did use that term. What? You never use real words. I'll be there at six then - we'll go over the various brands of motorcycles which do not include Boss Hondas or Harely Triumphsons...
from muppet23 :
That would be loverly - I'll be around tonight as well. About what time - EST?
from muppet23 :
When ya gonna have access to an unrestricted puter? We could try the messenger thing and I'll tell ya then...
from muppet23 :
Boss Hoss, you mean??! Nah, Winky was the name of my V45 Magna... My 99 VFR was Velocity Vixxen - Princess of Speed (or something like that).
from muppet23 :
My Dear, 'tis Laura Land, remember? Where the bees have colorful wings and the butterfly stings. Where cowboys are knighted and met by slightly taller, sweet smelling fair ladies at quaint Brooklyn cafes in the midst of a wintry evening. Where noble steads can still be noble, though bearing the name 'Winky,' roaming free on cobblestone streets. Where secrets are kept in strange, fascinating fairytales that hold truth in their mystery...
from muppet23 :
Got an idea I need to share with you, Sir Cowboy... Cannot wait for the freakin' letter to get there (although it does smell of 'daisies and roses and honey dew' or the most recent flavor of Glade...).
from areistia :
Hey.. question. What are we going to do job wise when its too cold to sell shit on the beach in NZ?
from muppet23 :
Hrrmmm... random answer - have windows messenger and can get MSN (if that's not the same). New computer with LOTSA space!
from mcjesyka :
Good, make sure that you tell everyone that it was from someone hot. Ha, I'm kidding. I hope all is well. I almost got into a fight tonight, and now I wish I would have, but I'ma lover, not a fighter.. grrr.
from mcjesyka :
I just hadn't heard from you in a while, and I figured you hated me. :( Well, now it's time for the joke, if I can remember all of it. There is a little boy standing outside of a market on the sidewalk saying "come get your dam fish!" Dam fish right here!" A priest walks by and says "Excuse me, but you can't say that word with people around, it's against the law." The little boys says "Well, these are fish from a dam, so it's ok." The priest bought a bundle, and made his way home. He got home, and asked his wife to fix him some "dam fish." She told him that it wasn't ok to call it "dam fish", because he was a priest. Later on, they were at the dinner table, and the priest said "hey son, pass me the dam fish." His little boy said "Yeah, that's right dad, get in the spirit, pass me the fucking potatoes." Ha, I thought this was really funny. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, tell your friends. ;) joking, of course.
from mcjesyka :
::Sighs::
from muppet23 :
Well, I just did not want to seem overbearing or eccentric - I really am a big goon sometimes and probably did not need to ask. As for the detail, I was sure to write every chance I had and I would usually take business cards from every place (I collect those and match books). Now, for the rest of the story, I become a little hazy with names... =)
from muppet23 :
Groovy...
from muppet23 :
Been contemplating this... Wrote you a letter in Paris - mind if I send it?
from muppet23 :
Not sure if Frienster is still up by you, but I left a message... Shall I use the alternatives?
from muppet23 :
Until my checks go through, I'll not have much to do so writing must goal (along with some Stats). =) Glad you enjoyed so far!
from muppet23 :
Yes - most museums are closed Tues. and thus I should have known! Glad you got the card - I never realized how much I WOULD NOT be able to say on one silly little square... Thought of you as I sat to write at a few cafes (must be a fellow writer thing). =) And how was your T-Day? I have been loaded with leftovers myself...
from euphoria21 :
"I’m sure I find some peddler on the corner dishing out evergreens like they came for a vending machine: pre-cut, pre-wrapped, possibly with a tag on one of the branches that details washing instructions." Ha ha! INSTRUCTIONS: Unwrap, wash in cold water only, hang dry...or lather, rinse repeat
from muppet23 :
Home. Headache. Missed first flight home due to Holland Casino. Must sleep. Headache. Missed our banter... A D O R E D Paris - going to go to school there and have been invited to play Rugby for all girls team...
from mcjesyka :
ALMOST all guys are jerks, and it makes me sad. :( Somtimes, I just feel like being a guy, for just one day, just so I can see why you "guys" (not all guys) treat girls the way that they do. I feel sad. I like your facial hair...haha. I'm sorry, I guess that's all with the facial hair ordeal. I think it's funny, but I have no sense of humor. I have a joke, for you, but I've already typed a gazillion words on here, and I guess this is where I stop. I will tell you the joke later... ROCK! Have fun, dear, and be safe.
from time2 :
I find your writing rather amusing, and Elgan said that we look similar, figured I'd give you a shot. ~~bang~~
from mcjesyka :
I bet you're a 24 year old man with facial hair, that makes me laugh. ( You, not the facial hair.) You should miss me.
from daze-of-rain :
I added you to my aol buddy list...hope that's okay.
from pornoviolent :
your banners sucked and your diary is even worse.
from euphoria21 :
Oh, there were soo many lines in that one that I wanted to just cut and paste but just couldn't decide. Promise me you'll autograph your first published book. YOu're amazing, did you know that? I bet you did.
from muppet23 :
Figures... Considering I left you a 'nice' goodbye note and all. C'est la vie. Have yourself a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving, Cowboy (how fitting with your location next week!) and I'll be thinkin' of ya (whether it's good or bad, I had to say it...). LEJ

*patiently waiting* Hey, told you that your libretto would go over well...
from muppet23 :
Merci, Missuer... Now is the time to elaborate, "The view out a friend's bathroom. I'll explain later."
from muppet23 :
That must be better than your ears turning blue, or bright orange with purple polka dots (uh oh, here I go again with those derned POLKAS). P.S. You're pretty good at the survey thing... =)
from muppet23 :
You are a bad, bad person... But I believe you were 'buzzing' at the time, so I make allowances...
from radiogurl :
Of course I can speak positively of an entry that includes the term "ass nipple." It's an imaginative description that makes perfect sense. Sometimes the beauty of literary expression is knowing when to juxtapose the crude with the sublime ;)
from muppet23 :
h's??
from muppet23 :
*through her tears* New survey for ya - relates to shit so you might just like it... MY STOMACH HURTS! LOL
from muppet23 :
You have successfuly provoked a tear jerking, pants wetting, soda-in-through-mouth-out-da-schnoz, giggle fest in my livingroom. Now I can't yell at my cat for peeing freely on the walls...
from muppet23 :
What in the WORLD would I do all day if not for our back and forth antics?! Too funny...
from muppet23 :
Great - you've got me on this 'teeth' thing now...
from muppet23 :
hehehe - Mango Survey was fun...
from muppet23 :
I know - he's just like Malcolm Lowery. I respect the guy but perhaps I'll actually 'like' him in three or five years. I might even enjoy the feast, who knows...
from muppet23 :
Naturally! I will be granted some precious time to myself for each of the seven days abroad to write my tambouring little heart out (which is also good since I've never had to spend more than three days alone with ONE person, ALL the time, besides my family). LOL Thanks for the note on the pretzels... I'll probably also be distracted by my own grumblings regarding A Moveable Feast (my in flight book) - Hemingway and I don't get along so famously, but I owe him this one.

Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY! At 3:34 p.m. I shall be on a plane and within the next 10 hours, battling the effects of the agonizing 'jet de lag.' At 8:55 a.m., or soon after, I will be making a mad dash for the door (and probably shot in the back by a customs agent) with desperation for a smoke...

It's just WEIRD - I'm telling you! Gets me going everytime...
from muppet23 :
I would rather say, congratulations on being human. It was a release for me as well as yourself, considering I felt something was being suffused...
from muppet23 :
My opinion - go for it. You managed to break up the (my) salacious imagery with your usual goofballdom and I KNEW there was something you needed to get out with your past couple of posts. This was it...
from muppet23 :
First of all, before I continue, I got that RIGHT away (too cool) and second... MONET!!!!! I purchased a journal specifically for Paris that has one of my favs on the front. KK, back I go...
from muppet23 :
I would be honored... I might be a bit scared, too, but I'm honored =)
from mcjesyka :
I f'in love reading your entries. Strangly enough, they make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Keep it up, dear.
from muppet23 :
What ARE you to do with your time?! And what of all the money you shall now have to spend in local cafes!
from muppet23 :
What, they actually want for you to W O R K now? *sigh*
from mcjesyka :
Well, when you said that you liked getting that question, I was expecting you to be in your 40's, but acting young to trick people, that's why I said it sounds like a trick question. Ha, I'm proud of myself.
from mcjesyka :
Well, you never gave an age range, but I'll take a stab at it anyways, even though I know I'll be wrong. 28?
from areistia :
Anytime you have a bad day, just think "Hazelnut farm" and all will be well. hehehe *xoxo*
from mcjesyka :
Well, if you ask me, that sounds like a trick question.. I'm not sure, but maybe you should give me an age range, and I'll take a guess at it then.
from mcjesyka :
Well, my computer was kind of messed up, but it is up and running now. You should be proud of me. By the way, how old are you?
from mcjesyka :
You've missed me?
from muppet23 :
Your orders Mr. Hague... Post an entry starting with these lines: "It was a hard jolt for me, one of the most bitterest I ever had to face. And it all came about through my own foolishness, too. Even yet sometimes, when I think of it, I want to cry or swear or kick myself. Perhaps, even now, after all this time, there will be a kind of satisfaction in making myself look cheap by telling of it."
from muppet23 :
"Gotta have a little mystery to me." Grrrrrr (this is much more intimidating when made vocal).

Ahh, you've got it easy... I've been likened to Wednesday Addams, Jeanine Garoffolo and Eliza Dushku.. I don't know whether to mope around in pigtails, dance to 'My Sharona' in a service station or run around in leather pants.

Ah, darling...all this time you've been in my back yard of Miami and sadly enough I haven't run into you. Are you leaving today or am I behind and you've already left. I'm glad you missed New York. Hey I live in Miami and I can't wait to get back to NY. I can sense the hint of distaste when you write about the locals of Miami, but that's okay. I miss you.
from radiogurl :
Okay, okay - I'll grant you there's a difference in having a drink or two and being drunk. Thanks, thought, for comfirming my conviction that Florida's a nice place to laugh at, but I wouldn't want to visit.

from muppet23 :
Alright, where are ya on 'friendster?'
from muppet23 :
Friends?? None... =) I am ENTIRELY curious about your dork-i-try quips, which is rather odd to me, as well, in lieu of the fact that I've never really read anyone else's diary... I must confess, your banner denoting journalism is what infiltrated my interest. Oh and the post 'Quietly the Quill' es para ti...
from muppet23 :
Oh shit, I see my mistake in all this mess... P.S. I am also Laura Elaine (littering your posts with random obsolete ovbservations and the night grows weary - well, myself or the night, whichever...)
from muppet23 :
Yes, but you see, I was only privvy to your magical meanderings this day and, therefore, it has taken the entirety for me to get through that phase of the tour (which I'm sure should be pursued by ALL your faithful readers...). But I do, in earnest, appreciate your enlightening explaination of the whole (be it far from me to be so picky, as a woman, you know).
from jonquill :
This needs being said...a few entries back when I wrote about the Drunk Dial, I mentioned the inevitability of me wandering up to a computer will blurry eyes, and staggering gait only to ramble out a few sloshy sentences onto the waiting digital waves. Finally I've written my drunk entry, revealing for all to see what happens when I don't have spell check handy.
from muppet23 :
Oh but now I must admit that I have not yet read it all and therefore immediately began to glow at the mention of Nietzshe (if, indeed, that is who you meant)... "You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star." This came to mind and I had to interject (but I go on...).
from muppet23 :
I've only just stumbled on your most recent rambling of Miami Beach. Despite a few mangled and misspelled words, I was most entertained (and since I rarely bother reading another word here excluding my own, that IS saying something). I even laughed out loud (can you IMAGINE?)...
from banefulvenus :
LOVE your banner!! :)

Great to see you last weekend, John! I said hi to Rebecca for you in Gordon's hearing, and they said to let you know that he's not mad at you, it was just a bad day for him. If she hasn't already called you, she plans to soon. Oh, and pics of me in that dress are on my diary site.
from cafeobserver :
You write well and I have added you. Feel free to keep in touch. Sadly, I know nothing of importance in Miami being a Northern girl myself. But have a great time. Au revoir~Aurora.
from jonquill :
I'm once again forced to go on sabbatical. Work is sending me down to Miami for the next couple weeks far far away from internet. But I'll try and find a kinko's...BTW - if any one knows anything of interest to do down in Miami, I have a few days to kill.

Check out my site if you're interested in a small self-publication that you're welcome to contribute to... http://www.geocities.com/drama_art_writing_maliger I'm finishing up Midnight Dance/Pathos, which is poems, short stories, and illustrations, and am going to do more printings, perhaps three times a year.

Hey gorgeous, you're gonna have to tell me where exactly in Brooklyn this Sal's Pizza is because I might be heading back to N.Y. in February, for my birthday. Apart from great pizza and some fun over at the Brooklyn Brewery I would love to run into you there. Take care, and don't forget the address if you have it. Take care, have a great week-end.

Dear jon (always wanted to write that..), i don't write here. but,with no other way to reach you i had to pick myself a nickname (which i think serves me well). i'm justifying the rudeness and not-getting-the-hints-ness with the simple excuse of cultural difference. and besides,being as pretty as i am,i can allow myself an occasion humiliation. i'm flying tonight,and in a dayy and a half will stand on U.S land. isn't that exciting. i'll have my old cell (the 646). if you don't have it anymore,write me. ([email protected]). you'll never touch my boobs again,but i'd might share with you some insights about joyce.. i'd really like it if you'd call or write.. plus,it is my birthday tomorrow,and you've got to top my gift.. love,tal

"like trying to write up a definition for string theory with only the letters provided on one rack of scrabble pieces": Dude, that turn of phrase rocked. Hey, I'm gonna be in NY this weekend. Wanna catch up at a coffee place or something Friday afternoon/early evening? I'd've suggested that you come play on Friday night, but if you're on the wagon maybe you don't want to be at Swing46 with Rebecca and folk. I'd still like to get together, though.

from areistia :
You like Calvin and Hobbes? I just bought another book of them. I ADOREEEE them. Seriously.. you keep this up and you're so going to make a groupie out of me.
from euphoria21 :
I've had a very bad day...scratch that. A very bad week and you seem to always be the one I run to read. I liked that last entry a lot. Those "good ole days" seem so far away for me. I do know how you feel though my "carless" companion. In the road of life we are the ones walking down the street while it's pouring and cold and from the corner of our eyes watch as the cars swish by. Every now and then someone offers us a lift, and that somehow makes for a great story later on at the bar.
from mcjesyka :
I actually had pizza today.. I wish I would get a gift every once in a while. But, I believe we all know how that goes. I will soon have my computer fixed, I will be doing whatever it was tha I was doing, and you will hear from me soon...

Ah, 64 entries(and counting) and you still don't leave me disappointed..."Even more evidence that the universe is trying to keep me from doing chores." - there it is..

I want to send you a gift through Dairyland, it sounds like fun.
from clarity25 :
I could relate to your last entry because I've been there, We tried everything to get in the apartment..we tried picking the lock, bent all our credit cards, and attemtped to get into the attic of the apartment building to climb across the gutter into our bedroom window. We called a locksmith that arrived promptly, before he started, we asked "So how much will this cost us, 50$?". He responded "Try 200$ cash only". We didn't have that much so we sent him away. He demanded 100$ for just showing up at our doorstep. We laughed it off as insanity, but later he attempted to sue us. So we ended having to pay him. Locksmiths are EVIL. Well..to make a long story short, we managed to get to our landlord who lives out of town and after a long lecture. He reluctantly gave us a spare key. We were locked out for about eight hours. Anyhow, What I wanted to tell you before I got into this whole story..was that I just discovered your diary and I love it. You have a captivating writing style and I'm going to make my way through your archive now.
from ladylazarous :
i remember getting locked outside my apt', at the winter. at least i was coming back from the market,so i had comfort food with me.. and,sitting all gloomy on the stairway,i actually got to meet my neighbors..

So you're going? but... I'll be bored! (Although you're still writing, so now i'm a little confused). I had to wince at your tat... mine is relatively small-ish and still hurt like all hell!
from areistia :
Please tell me that as soon as you got into your place you got your spare and gave it to the broad downstairs!
from euphoria21 :
"had I actually known that the only master key in the entire complex goes by the far less impressive title of ax." -Your parents must be so proud... ;^} Oh, I added this one to my favorites. You're starting to make all my other "favorites" jealous, I like that.
from elgan :
Prof. Plum, I couldn't stand it anymore. The word you want is "persnickety". You're welcome.
from areistia :
Hey- Yeah I think you may want to rethink the kind of girls you're dating... ;) that or rethink your technique. hehehe *xoxo*
from euphoria21 :
I thouroughly enjoyed that last entry, like a really stiff drink. It was gooooood! I love the Yankees..
from ladylazarous :
thank you..second reaing i actually thought it's a bit cheesey. but what the hell do i know? every time i read your entries i have something to say,but it's usually on the "it was great,loved the ending" level,and i got the feeling that you are in a search for a bit more..educational remarks.. anyway,i think you're a great writer,so it was great to hear from you..
from jonquill :
Hey guys, just so you all know, I'm in no way running away. I'm going to keep writing here, I just have a side project as well. I just waited until I had enough material to really start. I wanted to thank everybody for their help, and ask for a little ass kicking if you feel like providing it, but Offsite isn't going under. This I promise
from roklobster :
hey there. Glad you got out of D-land what you needed. I've been taking a break, trying to rethink what it is *I* want from this site. I've enjoyed your self-reflective moments most, and the random tidbits of story and life that would come out of your ramblings. Umm, lemme dig and I'll find examples. Ping my email if you feel like chatting. Cheers, mate.
from mcjesyka :
I bet you haven't even missed me, have you? You've probably already forgotten about me, if so, that's ok.. Oh. how I've missed you
from areistia :
You better keep in touch! This name on here is my name on AIM.. if you ever want to chat about the whole moving on thing, please feel free to IM me. I personally like the tat. I have a ankh on the small of my back... guy friends of mine say that its a marker for the guy to put his hand when he bends you over and..... ;) xoxo - melinda
from schmutzie :
Aw, don't go. I'll miss reading you, I will. I hope you drop in now and again and leave a little update on how you're doing, and if you do get a book published, let us all know! I'll be one of your first customers.
from elgan :
Your tattoo is a little too reminiscent of a bull's-eye. I would be wary about going shirtless if I were you.
from euphoria21 :
I just read what I sent you and I can't write today for shit! Sorry about that...you can erase this one, shit I would.
from euphoria21 :
"My crusade to find the perfect one liner will continue,"-where you thinking about anyone in particular her? *smirks* Oh, and by the way, nice tat. I've only got two(on the small of my back and on my right upper thigh), but they're beauties. And not very small either. Anywhoo, I feel a bit better even though I feel work today has come down on me like a shabby bookshelf with way too many books...au revoir
from euphoria21 :
It just doesn't make much sense to try and do better and "make the best with what you have" when you see that your "best" isn't good enough, and the quote I have written in my profile is very true...."You have no idea what a poor opinion I have of myself-and how little I deserve it".
from euphoria21 :
"“How goes the language barrier?” “Just difficult enough to be interesting.”" - Ah, never the one to leave me disappointed. Whenever I get to New York again we must have a few drinks so I can see you do that thing you do so well...
from areistia :
Just wanted to say hi. Haven't left you a note for a while.. hope all is well in your neck of the woods. ;)
from greentealeaf :
antique. aaaantique. hrm. it does sound like a field mouse having an orgasm, does it not? (giggle)
from jonquill :
I'm back. Sorry about the pedantic ramblings today. I've got a rather cluttered and emotional headspace. Considering old literary and societal concerns in the light of new mores based on popular media seems much more straight forward. May the weekend come quickly for you all...
from euphoria21 :
Ladies and gents, for this weeks one-line (drum roll please)...."curl that up in a tortilla shell with beans and lettuce and the choreography from “Grease” and you have a spicy Chalupa more than enough to keep you shitting tar for days." - Thank you.
from ophelia :
Indeed, anyone who picks up obscure Empire Records references deserves a mention. I actually sent out an email at work that said "Happy Rex Manning Day!" and everyone came up and asked who 'this rex person was' and if it was his birthday. Oh yeah, and i don't quote everclear *that* much. ;p
from euphoria21 :
"I would concern me terribly, if it did not feel quite so lovely."-there's that one liner again. Hi honey...
from jonquill :
Just as a note: I am being drug far from my office computer and thus far from my internet connection for the rest of the week. Should Baltimore offer up a resonably priced Internet cafe I'll happily pop back in and toss some words at the server. In any case, enjoy the week.
from thelittlefox :
no, i meant long distance affairs, like.
from euphoria21 :
*Euphoria21 courtsies in front of jonquill and a smile quickly crosses her face*

I changed what I wrote of you in my profile...go see.
from euphoria21 :
I once had a drunken one-night-stand and she took out her "trusty Hi-Liter". And yellow, out of all the colors of the rainbow. After that incident I told myslef..."Self, you've got to find better one-night-stands"

NO SEATBELT?! My good man, I do believe yer treading on dangerous grounds in dem there woods...

i like trains too. i often have love affair on them.
from euphoria21 :
Silly putty, huh. Now that's one I haven't used in the bedroom yet.
from euphoria21 :
"I dreamed, when I was sixteen, of having a liaison with the then girl of my dreams, only to look down during the act, and see the outline of “me” on her lower pelvis. The effects this had on my virgining sex life were straight up catastrophic."-let's start with this one, Freud. :)
from euphoria21 :
"usually clad in my undies and a large quilt draped over my back like a cape. In my Narcoleptic boy uniform,"-wow, for someone who usually can't remember his dreams you certainly have a gift for remembering it with elaborate details. So, what do you think the dream meant?
from greentealeaf :
heehee, pretzels? how innovative! i can't think of a better shape. i shall copy your example. *takes notes* and i dedicate 'go to sleep' by radiohead for a certain freud disciple, oops i mean, 'jonquill' tonight. damn freudian slips ..
from euphoria21 :
"but I don’t look like Cab Calloway in a PCP nightmare."-Priceless
from ophelia :
You've got me. I've been spending my workday trying to figure out how a shiny silver bally thing has trouble being fully digested. The only I can think of is one of those Boy Challenges, where you try to consume as many shiny bally things while trying not to a) choke to death and b) suffer from severe indigestion. (meanwhile, at the risk of making me sound like a vodka-swilling Martha Stuart is there a *recipe* for those choc chip martinis?)
from daze-of-rain :
When I am away and I don't have 'real' time to read a journal update I can't put the attention into yours that they so deserve. Now, home and in the quiet of my bedroom I am all caught up. I do so enjoy you.
from mcjesyka :
We talked about Dr. Freud today in Psychology, what a smart man he was...
from euphoria21 :
I've been meaning to mix the joys of drinking and the Olympics together but I can never manage to finish the game without my head in the toilet. One form of fun was to take a shot (also of Jager, I love that stuff)whenever a gymnist is shown cracking their knuckles or the bones on their feet. Since it regularly happens I'm pretty pissed drunk by the time they actually get on the floor to do their dance routine to the soundtrack of "Turendot" by Puccini. Here's to Athens!
from greentealeaf :
i am to submit an essay on dr.freud by tomorrow. of course, i haven't finished it yet (but i will!) .. just wanted to tell you that you've made an everlasting impression on me with that freud comment. and now everytime they mention freud, i think of 'jonquill'.
from ladylazarous :
thanks for adding me to your favorites.. and without ruining the metaphore, my feet were never scabby! (in fact,i could turn off a cigarette with my bare foot,without even feeling any pain. boy,was i cool!)
from mcjesyka :
Yeah, I thought it was a little weird, myself. I think he should be shot in the head 16 times. Ha. No, but I really don't think that he did enough time, because I mean, lets face it, the man tried to rape a little kid.. what a freak.
from mcjesyka :
Oh, how I've missed you so...
from areistia :
the last public bathroom I was in that was covered in writing had this like fight on it 'cause some girl wrote some dumb props to her "gang" then all these other girls wrote about what a dumb bitch she was. Needless to say it was amusing to read, but no where near as profound as your experience.
from ladylazarous :
this last one was great. sanitary aside,this one is one of my favorites. i loved the endending. can't wait to hear what's next..
from mcjesyka :
I think the women's bathroom is disgusting, so I don't use public restrooms. I wait until I get home, and have a bladder infection before I would ever consider going public.
from ladylazarous :
contrast is who we are.even though i'm not sure which contrasrt you were talking about,reguarding my writing here. you can't expect one to choose one voice,one tone and stick with it..we have a whole spectrum of feelings,thoughts,opinions,moods and desires to explore,and many points of you. i'm expressing all of them,i guess.or trying to..and about the nun-well,i thought of it too,actually,but i still have some kind of weird loyalty to the von-trums..the fought the natzies!with the nuns by their side..if the lady wants to appear once in a while,with a rule on high,just let her! stop fighting it,maybe you'll enjoy it..
from ladylazarous :
but jon,don't you know that drinking makes you one of the cool kids? i say,get drunk and steal an ipod. problome solved. how good it is to be so profound..
from sinnergi :
don't fret, for one might argue that songs nowadays are trite and fleeting. the written word is timeless and priceless nowadays. i just split up with someone. he wrote me two letters (one on a typewriter) and two postcards. they're sweeter than any song i've ever heard and i'll cherish them forever. you have a very evident gift of good writing, as does he...don't ever stop passing those notes to girls. they appreciate them more than you know.
from greentealeaf :
aww, what a sweet entry. don't worry, i'm certain you left a lot of beautiful words as well as memories. after all, words can become memories ..
from euphoria21 :
I love the fact that you do most of your writing during the afternoon. I wouldn't see any better way in which to waste my boss' money if not reading your entries; new or old I've reread some and I'm not ashamed to admit it. Thanks for the laughs ol' chap. Funny how I say "ol'" because last time I checked you and I are both 24. Go figure, laters.
from euphoria21 :
I added this last entry of yours to my favorite's list. Take care!
from mollsg :
Hi...it's Molly. How's it goin'? Oh, and if you actually don't remember me I'd consider you an enormous pile of crap, but I'm guessing you do. Just sort of....checking in, I guess. Maybe I'll see you again sometime. This really does sound as rigid as I think it does...oh well. If you don't actually check your notes, it won't even matter. But I bring up what ifs too often. Seeyah later.

"Jack joy": You wrote about trying to get people to call you Jack. Thus, Jack joy is the joy one receives as a result of your illustrious presence and witty conversation.

Wow, I wish I could have went to college in the sixties and seventies... ha.
from greentealeaf :
which means he's a cooler dude than i thought cause i used to think he was more of a 'fraud'. btw, you have the best description for me in the whole wide world. thankyou..
from greentealeaf :
<snotty comment>no, no! mr. freud would NOT be ecstatic about the phallic symbol hanging out of a psych ph.d student. he allegedly said, 'sometimes a cigar is just a cigar' when asked to explain his cigar smoking habit in freudian terms. </snotty comment>
from parabolish :
Oh, and yes, you should definitely break out your dancing shoes again. You know I won't wear the affected boredom look! Any remaining shreds of dignity among loungers are gone after being part of that singalong. Whee!
from parabolish :
Yea, new bag! (This is Heather Halberg.) 'Twas great to see you last weekend. I like the diary, too: it's like a little bit of Jack joy with each entry.
from schmutzie :
Ah, the bags I have carried. I have all but one of the bags that I have carried with me over the last 15 years. After reading your entry, I realized that they are the only things I don't routinely cull and throw away.
from roklobster :
A chocolate chip martini? (I was reading your profile thingum) How does that get made?! And thanks for the note. It made me smile on this somewhat melancholy day. :)

I am not trying to dis the Fabreeze, man. It has saved my over-sleeping ass many a day. BUT! I am saying that to eschew the use of soap and water on ones personal clothing types is perhaps why the stench of men can get to be so... potent? And telling the unsuspecting masses that it can, in fact, double as cologne, was begging for some mocking. As to your collection of mold: as soon as it becomes conscious and grows a soul, I say set yourself up as a diety and get some good old testiment worship out of it. It's your sink, after all.
from roklobster :
Mmm... wingtips. But on to the real thing: dood. Febreeze?!? AS COLOGNE?! ... I think any man I get that for would be highly offended, and would then go on to tout the wonders of his smelly self and why if would be a tragedy of epic proportions to kill the bacterium that cause such smell by use of this "Febreeze" ... Most the men I know are stupid. ... ;)
from jonquill :
I knew the fairer sex had an appreciation of the fleeter feet, but I still didn't expect to raise so many eye brows. Maybe it's time I break out the wing-tips.
from areistia :
I agree... boys that can dance have a level of sex appeal matched by little else... even if the guy isn't that attractive.. if he can move his hips (with the beat) and can dance well... yum yum. ;) have a good thursday - xoxo melinda
from euphoria21 :
So...you can dance...or should I say - swing. *Euphoria21's right eyebrow suddenly goes up with a devilish grin to accompany it* NICE!!!
from roklobster :
You should dance. I'm just sayin'... Girls kinda get all swoony when the cute boy brooding in the corner decides to cut a rug. *wink*
from elgan :
Man, you've reminded me how much I love to dance, and how rarely I get to do it.
from euphoria21 :
“died confessing his undying love of Falco,”-brilliant!!
from mcjesyka :
Yeah, I know that I still have alittle time with him, but it still sucks. I told him that he should just move in with me, since we have an extra bedroom, but I don't think that his girlfriend and my boyfriend would appreciate that too much. He graduated this year, and that makes everything even worse.. bleh. shoot me.
from mcjesyka :
My brother moved to Virginia a couple of years ago, to be in the Navy. I didn't really have anyone to talk to for awhile. And then I became really good friends with this guy, that I now look up to as a brother, because I don't have mine hear to talk to about everything, and that's what this guy was to me, a brother. Now, he's moving to North Alabama, and I will have no one to talk to, what am I supposed to do?! ARGH! I hate life.
from euphoria21 :
Those are the stories that just floor me, like the one with the girl that's always coming into her apartment when you're leaving yours. I love it when you do that; you know the whole give a complete stranger a story to give way to any explanation on why you feel the way you do when you encounter them. That was good. I have a favorite in those noir films. It was Mae West, and my favorite line of hers to date is still..."My left leg is Christmas, my right leg is New Years...how's about you come and see me in between the holidays" CLASSIC!!!!!!!!
from areistia :
Well, in *my* movie, you'd be the boy who spoke the words that made all the girls fall in love (and got the one you wanted), made the other guys jealous (especially the angsty artist asshole who thought that his looks and neediness would keep the girl), and ended up in a beautiful cabin as a writer with his kids playing outside and his wife smiling as she handed him a cup of coffee, kissed his cheek and left him in front of his laptop typing away as the credits roll...
from greentealeaf :
ahhh. you're a delightful find.
from elgan :
Very interesting entry there. As a member of the generation where what is now considered "retro" was cutting edge, I have to agree with your assessment of popular culture. Everything can be analyzed in terms of what it is trying to emulate. Even the nihilistic rock music my son listens to has it's roots in the music of Black Sabbath and similar bands. I feel sorry for your generation and those younger, because it all seems to have been done before and those who went before did it so well.
from sinnergi :
I'm extremely jealous of you right now. I've been wanting to see Garden State for a while now (about a month...since I saw the preview)...and i can't wait for it to come here. Maybe I should just fly to a coast because i'm seriously dying to see it!
from roklobster :
Hey there! Thanks fot the add - I've been meaning to drive by and say thanks but it's been a hectic week (as the lack of update on my part would kinda imply, I guess...). And I just read the update on 7/30/04 and wanted to electronically shake your hand. You are right - there are moments in life that don't deserve analysis, because they are good and clean and deserve to live in memory and not on some server somewhere for other people to read. And I thought it funny that people judge your relationship like they do mine (if it's good, we're not talking about it). Aaaaand. Um. Damn. Lost the train of thought. I sum up: thanks for the add, bonza entry, monkeys are keen, toodles.
from mcjesyka :
Thank you for adding me, I appreciate it. You are now my new best friend, friend.
from mcjesyka :
I'm bummed that I'm not on your list as well..
from euphoria21 :
Ohhhhh, you are the sweetest little thing. You are such a wonderful writer that I never thought I'd delve into a story about chin hairs. I personally have a thing for red-heads too, so I understand completely. I loved the part about a mini ZZ Top chin thing going on. Hilarious! I was ready to take back the "raspberries" that I threw at you but you said something adorably cute with committing me to your list with "strawberries on my face" how can I take those back?! And yes, you were defenitely there in spirit, as I am over there in New York. Next time you go to your little pub have a nice tall, cold one for me. I'll drink one in your name when I go drink on Thursdays; until then...CHEERS ;:^)
from elgan :
Keep the beard.
from euphoria21 :
If you want to read someone who always vividly remembers her dreams go read up on "galaxyrabbit". MEMO: Still pretty bummed that I'm not on your list. So if you know what it means for someone to give you "raspberries", that whole 2-year-old-stick-your-tongue-out-and-let-'er-rip deal then that's exactly what you got.. ;8^{)
from euphoria21 :
How open are you to people that'll lie just to make you happy??? *Enter answer here_________* In that case, I thought about you the entire time I was watching Robert Smith singing and occasionally saying "This is fucking great!"
from daze-of-rain :
what's truly sad is I don't drink yet still have a few of those calls to my credit...
from mcjesyka :
Things haven't been too bad. I have a paying job, woot! But, unfortunately, I will be starting school on the 12th, which sucks. I hate school! AHHH! I could just, not go, and homeschool, my mom said I could, but, my social life would suck. Because that's basically the only reason I go to school.. ha. Things are great with Trey, as usual. So I have no worries, I don't think. the only thing that I can complain about is, I was riding down the road, going to Trey's house, about 11:00 one night, and I saw a raccoon coming out of a corn feild on my left. Of course, there was no one on the road, so I stopped the let the little booger cross. And he prceeded to go across the left lane, and onto mine. He lturns around, and then back around, so I started moving thinking he would go to the right side. But he ran underneath my car, and I hit him. I cried the whole way to Trey's house, and the whole way home. I should have a funeral for him. I believe I will put that sad little story in my doary.
from areistia :
FCAT is the statewide test they give 3rd graders here in FL. It's insanely hard and if the kids dont pass it, they automatically get held back regardless of what their grades are... its evil and teachers hate it... they "grade" the schools based on this test, we get our funding based on the test scores.. its just evil.. and stupid Jeb bush thinks its great.. you so know that he's a moron (like his bro) and obviously knows nothing about educational development. Sure I think we should test the kids to make sure they are up to grade level, but they put too much emphasis on this one test. its' yucky.
from mcjesyka :
Long time, no speak.
from roklobster :
But just think of the stares you will receive throughout history for being The Ri-cock-ulous Man. Perhaps you'll bring back the cod-piece. Perhaps there will be statues in your honor. Perhaps KFC will make you their mascot. If that comes with free chickens, I say go for it.
from long-ignored :
Hell babe, diaryland is as good a place as any. I actually almost used ricockulous in my entry...but knew it would have been lost on the person I was writing about had they read it.
from euphoria21 :
I've always been a fan of "jonesing". Wanting what someone else has or some sh*t like that...take care. And Dead-Air is something that happens to me all of the time. I'm a burnout!
from ophelia-w :
Fancy is a good word indeedily. I live in England, we use it all the time. Ooo and 'yarse' is a good word too - although that has its origins in my sewage system of a mind. It is particularly good because it can be made to mean anything.
from areistia :
I'd like to add the word "hanker" and all its forms. Sure its dorky, but its always fun to see the look on someone's face when you bust out with "I got a hankering for some __*insert desired item here*__". lmao.. like I said.. its dorky, but fun.. just like me. lol
from areistia :
I think anymore, its so easy to get caught up in the titles that we get given, or that we try to bestow upon ourselves..... I guess I still call myself a girl, because part of me doesn't want to be old enough to be considered a 'woman', part of me knows that I haven't done enough to be considered a woman... and part of me just doesn't give a shit.. call me whatever you want.. I know who I am, and I don't need a title to define me.
from mcjesyka :
Well, I'll have to say, that depression has always gotten the best of me, since the day I was born. It has always been in the way of so many things. I could never imagine my life without, as much I want to.
from mcjesyka :
Well, you need more entries as well, my friend.
from mcjesyka :
Well, I, being the weird person that I am, read all of your entries. I read like one every time I check Diaryland. And everytime I read one, I leave a note. It all depends on what entry I read. I know that I should tell you which one it is that I am talking about, but I don't. I will thnk about it next time. I'm sure you've never checked my diary out, for it is crap. But, maybe you should swing by sometime. -Jesyka
from mcjesyka :
Vague? Why vague? I just love your site. I think it's got to be the greatest ever; forgive me, if I have put you under the wrong impression of me.
from mcjesyka :
Ahahaha... I love this.
from areistia :
Funny, I usually get yelled at for calling guys i know "boys"... i always hear, "I'm not a boy, I'm a man".... but I just say "hey, i used to teach kindergarten, leave me alone". I dont really think I've reached "womanhood" yet 'cause I've yet to bond with my sisters like you wrote about.. I guess I'm still a girl, aged 26 or not.. and you know? I kinda like it that way. *have a great weekend*
from long-ignored :
naked thought...I like that a lot.
from euphoria21 :
I just happen to have this thing for big, bulky tattoos and guys who shave off their heads and Aaron(lead singer) from Staind, is a prime example of what I would date if I were straight. Plus my girlfriend had taken off her shirt and was only wearing a cute purple bra!!
from euphoria21 :
You could write the words to a really great song one day. :)
from euphoria21 :
can't spell for sh*t tonight. I meant the good ol' days. I'm ashamed.
from euphoria21 :
Reminded me of the god ol' days. I once got a hickey that-get this, resembled my country of birth Cuba. Not that's what I call talent. Once at a rock concert I had my girlfriend sitting on my lap and when Staind came on-stage I kinda went crazy and got so worked up that I left my girlfriend with an entire onyx colored necklace shaped hickey. Literally, it went all around her neck, about eight of those little fuckers. I didn't mean to do that to her or make her look like a whore but I was horny and her neck kept on getting in the way...hmm! Not a bad excuse that one.
from euphoria21 :
Ha ha! You're the second person I know that's said "Dubya". You're adorable, you know that?!? Bleh, I'll go for the lesser of two evils. One talks funny and the other one is funny looking. Wow, both sides of the scale are equally tilted...
from sinnergi :
Not a problem at all, dear. :)
from daze-of-rain :
I aim to please
from daze-of-rain :
I can't say I fully understand either...it's easier to point a finger at the other guy and say "well he did THIS" then say "I'm great, look what I did." the fact is that they are all scared to stand on something that the popular opinion may be against...sad really. They aren't being men anymore. As for Kerry and admiting he was wrong...Wouldn't that be refreshing? I'll not hold my breath but someone most certainly should suggest it to him. In all your DVD TV show watching...have you picked up West Wing? Now there's a president I'd vote for. [wink]
from schmutzie :
You said it. And it sounded sane. This is a rare thing these days.
from sinnergi :
nah, I understood what you were saying and I would urge you not to be more cautious. You have very valid points. I suppose I was just listing mine also? I see where you're coming from, no worries! :)
from roklobster :
Thanks. The entry for July 14th was rad. And it's what I've been sayoing for years - sure, knowing what is wrong is a place to start, but having a vision for the future, and how to make things RIGHT is whole 'nother ball game. So. Thanks. Still digging yer writing.
from sinnergi :
I recently stumbled upon your diary and really liked your writing. I'm studying politics and I also work in politics right now and I find your words interesting...and I also hear them echoed throughout the different places I've been. I'd love to tell you that John Kerry was my first choice. But he wasn't. I would have loved for Edwards to be on the top of ticket. I have to agree with you though, that we need an extraordinary candidate. I think it would invigorate voters and help greatly. However, it turned out that the people in this country chose Kerry to represent them against Bush. Kerry may not seem like he's all stars and stripes and fireworks...but he's a good man. And he stands for very good things. He IS the anti-Bush...and that's what we have ended up having to go on. Do I wish we had a more inspiring candidate? Of course. I hope one comes along soon because we, as a country, NEED it. However, I will cast my vote in my very first presidential election for John Kerry and John Edwards. Not because they are the lesser of two evils...but because they represent what I believe in...and I think they can do good things for this country.
from euphoria21 :
You know what just totally freaked me out? I have something that I worte I believe it was last night and I hadn't had time to put it in d-land yet, and I have something written about Jedi mind tricks(thanks to Poe!) and million falcons. And I'm not even a huge Star Wars fan. That's just totally freaky...by the way, what ever became of that Oriental girl that you'd always see coming in when you were going out for work??
from euphoria21 :
"We roll through three cigarettes, lighting each successive cancer stick with the dying ember of its predecessor."-Wow, you made it sound great to actually ry and look "cool" to smoke. People make fun of mine because I usually smoke Capris. People always criticise them and call them "Bitch cigarettes" right before they ask to bum one off. Jerk offs. I thought you weren't going to have good places to tell your friends where to hang out. you obviously did good. Was it by chance? Did you know the place already? By the way, since I know you're in NY have you ever been to a place called "Brooklyn Brewery"? It's great I tell ya!!!

Well, I'm from Alabam, yes, I know it's like the most redneck state ever. And believe me, I've seen my days of "trucker/mesh hats." Well, here you see the stupid little giddy school girls with their blonde pigtails, and their "up-the-ass" mini skirts, which by the way most of them are fat, and of course, none other than their "truck hats." I myself, am only 16, but I have the I.Q of like a 21 year old. I'm your average all around girl. I'm not blonde, I don't wear little mini skirts, and I'm not fat. I think that the hats are completely stupid. If you aren't a "trucker" you shouldn't wear them.

you are better when "boring" than most are when they feel they are entertaining -

I know nothing about html either.. I went to www.signmyguestbook.com (run by the same guy who runs this site). You click which design you want and then they give you the html to stick into your template.. easy skeesy. ;) Hope you had a good weekend - xoxo Melinda
from mcjesyka :
Dude, I live in the south..
from areistia :
p.s. I totally agree about the trucker hat thing.. you can tell that it wasn't a trend started in the south.. ppl here have always worn trucker hats.. they just were never cool, and always viewed as kinda white trashy... I can't wait for the fad to die away and have everyone burn those fucking hats! ;) *have a great weekend* xoxo- melinda
from areistia :
Hey- how fun that I was inspiration. ;) I loved the entry.. makes me want to go to NY even more. I myself do love LA, but mainly because of the reasons that you talked about NY... its not the glitz and glamour, its the savage beauty of the city.. it truly is a concrete jungle... but one that was a lot of fun to explore. *ever thought about adding a guestbook?*
from roklobster :
Hey! Random drive by to say I've been enjoying your writing and hell, New York sounds like the best ride around. I may haul my carcass out that way at some point... Cheers!

Jews for Jesus is still around? I remember them when they first came to my highschool in the early 70's! It incensed me then and it incenses me now. Will wonders never cease?
from daze-of-rain :
and to think...so many people walked by the same sights and thought nothing of them...Leave it to a writer.
from mcjesyka :
Why not talk about the ears to kittens during lunch? I don't get it.. ha. And I'm not quite sure rather they're low carbed or not..
from areistia :
I make some MEAN chocolate chip cookies... I've mailed them to ppl before.. maybe one day if you're lucky you'll get some too. ;) I dunno what even made me think of writing that comment, it just came out... but it's true.. I think it'd be fun to sit in the park eating cookies and making fun of people/people watch.
from euphoria21 :
*Blushing* Thank you.
from mcjesyka :
Well, as a matter of fact, I did find the owner of the ear, it just so happens that Chet (the mom cat) had eaten the runt (the owner of the ear.) I guess she ate it because it was missing the ear, but yet, she was the one that pulled it off. The day after I found out that she had eaten the kitten, she came up missing. She was embarassed, ha. No, she came back, but we still have 3 kittens left. Bleh.

I meant this ;8^{}

*Violet manages to stop bouncing off the walls long enough to see if he's written anything* This is the imaginary face of anxiety ;8^{}
from euphoria21 :
I like the idea of a simple wedding. By the end of your entry about the subway guy kicking your feet off it started to sound like a book. And people wonder why I enjoy reading you. Take care, Vy
from euphoria21 :
I would hope that someone as amazing as you would not even take that whole "looney" thing to heart. Besides, it's the 'crazy' writers like best. IRONY: Most writers are. With all that aside, that's not really what I meant, I thought your imaginative subconscious is overwhelming. Are you like that with everyone? Because if you are let me know, I want to know what kind of Imaginary life you can mix up for me, it might be better than the realistic one...Happy Fourth!! ` '` `'` `'`(supposed to be my version of fireworks)
from euphoria21 :
"Truth is I’d probably carry your matched luggage set without even a glance. But that’s probably why you’re not sashaying over here."-I feel you, and it's so sad that I do.
from mcjesyka :
Ha, I love this.
from long-ignored :
hey there. wanted to drop by and thank you for the add...and also to say I am slightly relieved you didn't take my comment as an intent to stalk. I am a very non threatening kind of girl. lol I just really like what I have read thus far.
from sweet789 :
Your welcome.Its nice to come across a blog like yours,its refresing.It feels honest and an outlet for your creativity.I'm glad you like Thisbe Nissen,and that you are a fellow Guster fan.There awesome.
from long-ignored :
really there is no cause to be unnerved...simply that i've never really read anyone who's writing much compared to his. Similar writing abilities although very different content...that and he too is the proverbial artist doing much watching and writing and little pursuing. Then again, he's married now so that's probably best.
from daze-of-rain :
I have another theory to add to the hypothesizing...She's getting it on with her boss and comes home to change as not to show up back at work in the same clothes from the day before. And can I just say that writers give the BEST compliments…staggering eh? Thank you so much. You made my day!!!
from euphoria21 :
Wow! you could possibly be the quintessential "Looney" of your building complex. To think you've made all of that up in your head about a girl/woman/NightOwl just to give you something to think about on your morning commute from Brooklyn, it's just astonishing. If I had a hat I'd tip it off to ya, but I'm a girl and right now I'm in the office with a skirt so I could curtsey out of respect like if you were a King or maybe the court jester. I don't know what my point was exactly but...oh yeah, you should ask her out for coffee one day after you've called in "sick", just to be able to try your hand with Ol' Lady Luck. Hey, it worked for Frank Sinatra ;8^} This is too long, so sorry. Happy Fourth of July!!!!
from daze-of-rain :
although i've only read a few entries I can honestly say that this is one of the best diaries I've come across. You write wonderfully.
from euphoria21 :
Your entries have been the only thing that have kept me from strangling myself with the phone cord at work..keep it up!
from elgan :
Thanks for adding me to your favourites, and for that lovely comment, although you misspelled "intelligent".
from elgan :
By the way, just to show there are no hard feelings, I'm adding you to my favourites. So there.
from areistia :
Thanks for adding me.. I feel like one of the cool kids now! ;) If you are ever bored in your cablelessness, look my up on aim under areistia or yahoo under UCFgrl.... ttyl - Melinda
from elgan :
Thanks for your very informative note. I actually knew that, and my comment to you was meant as a joke. I guess I should lay off the attempts at humour, especially the etymological kind. Thanks for writing me back.
from euphoria21 :
I added your "My Alarm Clock Betrayed Me" on the 'favaorites' list...(F.Y.I.) }8^)
from euphoria21 :
You are amazing! I added you a while ago, but I'm you finally opened up your notes pages. You've had me cracking up ever since. I believe it was your banner but I acn't remember for the life of me. Whatever, you live in New York, I should be moving there in about two more years, went to visit in March and I didn't want to come back to Florida!! Take care, later. -Vy
from elgan :
I arrived at your diary via your banner. Good writing, except for a few spelling errors: romanticized, igneous (for the rock). But I didn't come to find fault, just to tell you that "duck" is already the female. Her mate is called a drake. She can’t be a "womallard" because she's an egg layer and doesn't have a womb.
from areistia :
I added you... you're writing is amazing... the entry about the gay bar had me laughing my ass off... and I know how you feel about no cable.. I didn't have it when I was in cali and even though I hate them, I became totally addicted to the cheesiest reality shows...
