Yes! I completely undrstand the holiday-books business. Whenever I go away anywhere, I take a large travel bag of clothes and shoes, my laptop, my vanity case (filled with nail polish and lipstick) and an ENORMOUS woven basket from Provence filled with books. The thought of being anywhere without plenty of reading matter fills me with unspeakable horror. Love, R xxx
from pureone :
my college roommate took me to a similar event...learning to shoot was lots of fun...also, something I never thought I'd do...have a great time! :)
from goddesskiki :
Your latest entry about passing is something I've been thinking about lately. As always, you know how to eloquently put things into perspective and shed light and heart onto a situation better than I ever could. But know that you're not alone in how you feel. And also? We will unite someday. We just must! We're twinsouls!
from pureone :
your entry was well-timed...very much something I needed to hear...and very thoughtful.
from yelayna :
Good luck for tomorrow... or is it today in your time? Ach. Interveiw. Good luck :o)
from hissandtell :
I keep reading about the heatwaves in your part of the world - it sounds perfectly awful. Of course, our summer seems like eons away right now when we're shivering in the winter frosts, but I dare say it'll be here before we know it - damnit. Love, R xxx
from celynen :
Yep, that's what they tell me -- turn it off if you aren't home, but if you're home, leaving it be instead of turning it on and off through the day is supposed to be more cost effective. If you can see your meter, give it a one day comparison just to be sure.
from goddesskiki :
Sushi is good for the soul. I just found this out last weekend--I'd never tried it before, so my friend took me out for a ton of different rolls and fishes. It was amazingly good and made me smile. Oh--and? I love the fact that you knew that my song was from Grease 2. That movie is so cheesy that you can't help but love it. You rock, hon!!!
from yelayna :
Happy Birthday! Hope you had a better day :o)
from jellehbelleh :
I like your blog and the fact that you read Eve Ensler! Yay!
from goddesskiki :
Again proving that we are sisters on the opposite ends of the country--Angelina could turn me gay in a nanosecond. What is it about her?
from candoor :
oh, the shame in how we reach out for atention, for love, for some sign that we exist (I mock myself about it all the time :)
from yelayna :
I signed up to friends reunited just out of intreigue, and it made me cry :o) Everyone was doing better than me (or so I perceived). But then I thought... Do I really want to be those people? And the answer came out as a sound no, so I felt a little better. Totally relate to the being nice but not meaning it thing. On the bright side, its much worse in person!
from like-a-mouse :
Ah so that's what myspace is all about. In uk we don't really have facebook, but since quite a few bands I like are on myspace I thought I'd sign up to read all the stuff. Then I discover this whole world of messages, making 'friends' at the click of a button. Hours are lost as I track from one person to the next. Is it a dating service? Is it a chatroom? So it's really a kind of friends reunited then? Interesting.
from candoor :
I just enjoyed your last two entries... I intend to read more when my ADD quiets down... seriously, I needed a distraction from my ranting and you provided it and I want to thank you... yes, it is late and I am too wired for this ungodly hour, but it's my time, my time I say, and I shall lose my mind any time I see fit... just ask hissandtell :)
from hissandtell :
I click on your banners too, darling! I loved your entry about romance novels; actually, I feel the same way about them as I do about romantic movies: What's wrong with a change of genre once in a while? Who said that everything we read or view has to be perceived by others as "legitimate" or serious literature or film? Why can't we just wallow in some mushy escapist fun sometimes? (I used to buy romance novels by the bucketload until a couple of years ago, when a nun was arrested for shoplifting them from the local bookstore I frequented. Now I just feel kind of weird about them. Romance novels, I mean - but nuns, too.) Much love, R xxx
from osakamoment :
When I was a kid, my politics were in direct opposition to my mom's. I wasn't being rebellious; I never even told my mom my thoughts. I knew if I did, there'd be a fight. She was a strict Baptist and pro-life and I, even at 4, was pro-choice. Admittedly, I was a strange kid--the news was my favorite thing to watch on tv, along with Mr. Rogers.
from kestra :
Honestly, I think your objection is not the use of children in parades or protests. Rather, I think your objection is teaching children to be hateful and doing it in a very public fashion. We wish to protect our children from the outside world: violence, pornography... and hate. They're having them protest about SEXUAL matters in a HATEFUL way... That covers two out of three! But, as you said, lucky for them, they probably don't even understand what they're being told to do.
from adventuresof :
I like your style.
from smedindy :
Romance novels are your guilty pleasure - much like bad 70's pop music and Iron Maiden records are mine! I think we all have them (and I wrote about it a few days ago).
from goddesskiki :
I think the romance novel is such a source of embarassment because of the stereotype of the readers. Many people think that only lonely, uneducated, desperate women read those. It's not the case (you were never one to be a stereotype *grin*), but because of the stigma that goes with the books, people feel embarassed to buy them.
from celynen :
Oh no fair, you got some really good ones there :)
from goddesskiki :
Think of it this way--now you're perky with layers. You're an onion, as Shrek would say. And I don't think there's anything wrong with being perky. I'm described as perky a lot. I like it. And I know that it's not my good quality, so I embrace it and carry on smiling. Besides--isn't it better to be caleld perky rather than something worse?
from pureone :
Wow...first of all, glad you like Wicked and happy I helped you find it! I really liked the book...and I'm incredibly jealous you're seeing the show! Lucky you!
from pureone :
you had patience for idiots to begin with? Wow...better than me!
from goddesskiki :
Good luck with the interview! And enjoy the holiday weekend. Nothing says "God bless America" quite like bad tv all weekend. =)
from pureone :
woah, crocheting AND quilting? sounds like a plan to me! I'm always impressed in others who can crochet...mostly because I find it such a pleasant distraction. Way to be crafty!
from neangel :
love your entry: Biphobia as Sexual Essentialism. I think it was a banner click that brought me here - I'm glad it did!! =)
from goddesskiki :
Thank you for making me think. You consistently write amazing entries that hit the nail right on the head. And I'm both amazed and amused at how alike we are--I, too, was a band geek and I didn't realize how much of a haven band was for some of my friends. It truly was a place for them to be themselves, though.
from pureone :
those are some of the stupidist, most insensative things I can think of for ANYONE to say to you. Shame on them for being so moronic.
from pureone :
thanks for the note...hmmm...Gamestop employees or use car salesmen...I think I'll stick with mine...but your note amused me :)
from goddesskiki :
Well said! That's the best observation I've heard in a while. It's not just in photos either, it really could be an analogy for life, in a sense. Girls are more reserved and put on more of a front when they're sober, but loosen up and have "who gives a damn" attitudes when they drink. Guys--at least most guys--act dorky without alcohol, but put on the "I'm a pimp" front once alcohol enters the picture. It's an interesting observation and good food for thought. PS: thanks for plugging me! =)
from pureone :
Have you seen the movie "Stage Beauty?" The theme of only a man being able to play the perfect woman is brought up in it too. Its a pretty interesting film.
from goddesskiki :
Everytime I read your diary, I'm impressed with how eloquent you are. You make me want to be smarter. Thanks for the inspiration. Anyway--I agree with the just be happy goal. It's how I live my life. I think if more people thought that way, life wouldn't be nearly as complicated.
from pureone :
Happy Birthday! and its WONDERFUL that you get sushi!!!
from pureone :
I'm happy to help out :)
from pureone :
When my roommate went off to Iraq I freaked out and cried for 2 days straight...I cannot imagine what its like if its someone even closer than that. I think what you've figure out for yourself so far is good, to support your brother and that be your stance. Also...I wrote an entire rant filled email about those "Support our Troops" decals and people talking about them or destroying them...your comments struck a cord with me.
from nightdragon :
You're in Edinburgh? Lovely place. We'll be there in March.
from pureone :
I agree that too much focus is placed on the more controvisial aspects of Christianity and its many facets. I'm very religious(or try to be, anyway) and I think its unfortunate that not more emphasis is placed on forgiveness, kindess and grace... Whenever I get into a discussion I always try to preface it with those qualities. What good is it for you, or your religion, to immediately go and tell everyone what you think is wrong with them? Its cruel and certainly doesn't do anything to help whatever you cause may be. Thank you for pointing out the good points.
from elsworthy :
Thank you for adding me to your favourites list! I switch favourites in and out, but I'll add you to my "Zombie Hordes" page soon. :)
from pureone :
first, really interesting entry. Secondly, while I am pro-life, I agree that in this country you cannot infringe on another person's life or choice, so, while I may disagree with someone's actions, I will not attack them for having their own beliefs. Its not right and its not fair. What I apprecaited about your entry was that you didn't attack the idea of being 'pro-life' just that you suggested that people make their own decisions...and stay out of other peoples. And that you're willing to listen to another persons point of view. I respect that a lot. Thank you for making me think. :)
from the-book-bag :
Hi, I just wanted to thank you for adding me to your favorites list...even if it's only temporary and you end up not liking what you read, I appreciate you giving me a try. :-) -cat
from pureone :
I found you yesterday(by clicking on a banner) and I enjoy reading your diary. I just thought you'd like to know. Thank you :)
from misfliktry :
Help! I have no idea how I ended up here! But you seem luffly.x
from gumphood :
Well why thank you very muhc. Much.. damn. Anyweay I am glad someone liked it, and I hope that I can keep you amuzed. Where are you giving the tour?
from gumphood :
Oh hey. Thanks for putting that entry down as one of your favs. I don't know much about "the spark" but I have seen it around alot. What is the deal with that crazyness.
from gumphood :
oh...its like waiting for a trailor
from gumphood :
saw your banner, and frankly, found it amuzing. Just wanted to give you a shout out before I forgot. I have enjoyed reading serveral of your entries.
from kitchenwitch :
I locked my diary. Email me if you want the password. Love ya! Hopefully this will be temporary!
from nightdragon :
Just caught up with your diary, and I must say, some rules apply to both genders, in certain areas/situations. As a guy, I don't walk alone, especially at night, through neighborhoods that aren't safe. You're right, I'm not quite as hindered in my activities as women are told to be, but still, I think certain situations apply to both sexes.
from darkfairy13 :
most certainly welcome, yes I had to spread steves website everywhere ^_^
from darkfairy13 :
Glad you are happy ^_^ cheat codes, I am so bad at video games that even cheat codes can't halp me. ps-cool diary -^_^-

from regz :
I was in SLO in July of '93, and remember having a great night at McClintock's as we had the menu's frisbeed at us from behind the bar. I also remember stories of many people who had tried (and failed) the burger eating competition. I didn't have the guts myself. Those things looked BIG. Either way, I never forgot about Frank's! :-)
from regz :
Only without the extra "K" in McClintock's. *duh!*
from regz :
Many thanks for the BIG hug. You know, it ocurrs to me that I have been to San Luis Obispo. Isn't that where Frank McClinktock's Saloon is?
from regz :
Well, I don't know about a new invoice, but you can have a hug and a cookie. *hugs* *hands over a cookie* ~xo~
from dominia :
Welcome to goddess! :)
from regz :
You know, I think you may be right. Moving on, taking that step into the unknown; that's far braver than forever standing still. Who knows, I might even end up in CA. "So Mary climb in / It's a town for losers / We're pulling out of here to win." ~ Bruce Springsteen, Thunder Road. Many thanks, you. *hugs*
from regz :
With regards to the issue of abortion, I agree with you wholeheartedly. Decent facilities need to be more available. If only they could be set up without attracting the bigoted people who stand outside screaming and shouting. In other news, the new installment of the Secret Diaries of The Fellowship is up. *tap dances off into the sunset, trips up in silhouette, limps out of sight.*
from keryanna :
I agree. Blue playdough is the best kind.
from regz :
So, I innocently dropped by my notes page, wondering if anyone had signed, and I was kind of gobsmacked to read your incredible note. You know that achey-chest thing you get when you don't know what to say? I got that. Reading your diary, nostalgia is a funny thing, isn't it. Everything always seems better in hindsight. Have a good one, and take care. *hugs*
from regz :
Better to wonder whether you can fall in love, than to act like you are with someone you're not. Most people don't give it enough thought, methinks. Did I ever thank you for listing me in your faves? If not, many thanks are due to you. Spent a little while reading this afternoon and you have an engrossing diary. Have a good one.
from live-diary :
You are so cute! Thanks for saying such sweet stuff to me in the comments and adding me as a favorite diary! I love Jennifer Weiner too, isn't she great? I'm reading her second book after good in bed, "In Her Shoes." So far it's quite good. Hope to talk to you soon, sometime!
from ishouldsleep :
i love your comment on rascal flatts. "if any of us liberated females could actually remember HOW to swoon" lol that's great : )
