Well, it's now the year 2023, and you'll be turning 58 soon. You were 38 at your last entry, I believe. Your kids, gosh - 29 and 25? Something like that? Hope you've been well. Hope your libido came back, if only for your husband's sake. Hope he got that '64 Mustang together finally. And I hope someday you read this note :)
from coldandgray :
HEY! Where have you BEEEN?!?!
from crazylady :
Hey! Thanks for the note on my entry last week! Nice to know someone is still reading!
from smokeybone :
Thanks for the note, and for adding me to your favorites. I really appreciate the encouragement.
from coldandgray :
Love your diary, looking forward to new updates. Thanks for the well wishes.
from smokeybone :
Wow. You responded. I really appreciate that. I have two entries now. They aren't great yet, but I'll get there. Thanks again!
from smokeybone :
Love your diary. I just added you to my favorites. Are you thrilled?
from coldandgray :
Thanks for letting me find you, I am going to enjoy catching up with your archives...
from madsad :
You like Joe Versus The Volcano. I can't help but respect that.
from squirrelx :
Thank you so much for your support! One message like the one you just left in my guestbook makes up for all the accusations of 'derangement'. With affection and gratitude, Xtine
from piehole :
I thought you were dead! But, apparently? Not dead. YAY!
from squirrelx :
I'm so happy you're back! Hope all is well with you! Best, Xtine / Squirrel X

I'll hide out on Xmas Day and then go to a Szechuan restaurant for dinner. Never did like turkey... and I was thrilled to realize that at the "first Thanksgiving" codfish and lobster had a bigger place on the menu than turkey...
from squirrelx :
LP, there's no way in this world I'd ever describe you as a 'stalker'! I'm beyond the beyond of grateful for your support and inspiration. As for writin' a book ... I feel like I'm about as qualified to do that as I am to perform brain surgery, but then again, one never knows. Maybe a miracle will happen. Best, Xtine / Squirrel X
from raven72d :
Thank you for the kind words... And for making me listen to Berlin again...
from raven72d :
The platypus is a wonderful monotreme. The most common name for a platypus is "Asmodeus". The Island of Misfit Toys is a brilliant idea.
from gayfraud :
I hate "old school," too. I prefer "seasoned," but probably due to nothing more than my love for cajin food.
from veggiedog :
thanks for clicking the banner. i wanted my handle to be platypus on diaryland, amongst other titles, but it was taken. i didn't have the mind at the time to be creative like you, and add another word to it. sheesh. by the way, 'indie' means independent from major record labels. it's a very respectable thing. 'emo' means emotional - you have to delve further into the scene to understand it fully - i only do partially. these weren't rhetorical questions, were they?..heh...
from gayfraud :
How cool are you? You just made my life with that note you left for me. I have been stumbling around all day muttering to myself about how I hate taking actuarial exams (mine is tomorrow morning), and all I really want to do with my life is write a book. "But no one would want to read it," I think, until reading your note. You're going in the forward as My Inspiration.
from raven72d :
"Lostplatypus" is such a wonderful name... I'm quite the fan of our platypus friends (they're named "Asmodeus", of course) and the Psyduck himself. Chalk. I miss chalk. All the places where I teach use dryboard. And redneck games... well, it may not match "Cornhole", but in St.-Joseph, Louisiana, they go out from the local br onto the levee and do T'ar Throwin'...tossing tire along the levee and betting on distance.
from snotgirl :
//thought i would say hi to a fellow buk fan.

Oh my god, that IBS/pooping at work entry was the greatest thing, ever. (ps Have you thought about getting a guestbook up on your diary?)

Hello! Thanks for the lovely thing you said about my journal in your profile. You've got a great writing style, and you're quite funny. I guess I'm a little late in welcoming you to this online writing world, but welcome! ~Sadie
