I really wish that I knew where I could continue to enjoy your fresh and amusing outlook on life.
from portlypete :
A void in my life - truly... *sigh*
from portlypete :
Diaryland must be double-wrapped in super-density aluminium, since I failed to notice your update earlier. But, BOG, really, you were living in a fantasy world if you ever thought cotton would be around when you were old and grey, or blue, or cerise, or whatever the fashion was back in the day. Didn't you realise that all available soil would, long ago, have been utilised for growing biofuels purely for the 'Great and the Good' to power their F5-Hovercopters? Also, I have to contradict your view on 'Arseless leather trousers': I believe they do have a future - on the right person.
from portlypete :
So glad you're posting again - really!
from portlypete :
"I'm so glad you think the human race will make it that far", said Eeyore. Having so many e's in my name, I was hoping someone (portly) would post about <b>exponential</B> population growth, and how we would possibly be able to cultivate enough honey for the bees to nurture poor Pooh, and his poohlets, and all his bunny friends *sob* etc into the future. Seems like it's a hopeless case. Humans will obviously have procreated themselves into oblivion by then, so it's up to me to sort things out...... OMG! ..."End of the road. Nothing to do, and no hope of things getting better. A.A Milne was so very perceptive: "Everybody crowds around so in this Forest. There's no Space. I never saw a more spreading lot of animals in my life, and in all the wrong places."
from portlypete :
Skipping the year of the horse, when you were regrettably absent, welcome to the year of the sheep / ram / whatever. Good to find you back, even though I've, more or less, packed in diary entries (much to most people's relief), since I now have better things to do. I did try to find a risqué fish related pun, but "Big Head" and "Bone Fish" seemed far too contrived. I would, however, recommend a smooth (yet robust) Italian with a long, lingering finish to accompany the meal. p.s. That screen-play / award-winning novel isn't finished yet then? p.p.s I hope the family is doing well.
from spiralish :
You're welcome, and don't worry about not responding sooner. :)
from spiralish :
I am neurotic/paranoid, so naturally I assumed that you "must" be someone I used to know whose nickname was Marzipan. I am delighted that you cannot possibly be, and also that you are articulate and witty and even vaguely local. Also: trying to knock some sense into myself. Again. Love the ants :)
from kabukicharms :
I still occasionally peek in to read peoples journals, all creepy stalker like MWA-HA-HAA! Life just kinda rolled over me and a lot happened in a very short span. Eventually I'll come back to DL and post about it.
from portlypete :
We have driverless trains on a small part of London's rail network but, I think I'm correct in saying that, they still have to have a man sitting at some dumb-terminal just in case something goes wrong. Elsewhere on the underground network, the drivers are earning ... stand by with a tissue 'cos this will make your eyes water ... over 48,000 GBP a year compared to an average (including the bankers - I guess) of about half that! And much of the network would run just fine without a driver anyway. Our much revered ex Prime Minister (Mrs T) managed to finish off the print unions (which would have been a good thing if that nice Australian Murd0ch hadn't cosied up to her and grabbed all the rich pickings); she also beat the coal-miners into submission, which was (arguably) not such a smart move given our current dependance on foreign fuel, but the rail transport network seems to have got off quite lightly, and we are all still paying the penalty. The rail unions have our Eton-educated Prime Minister over a barrel. Maybe it's a public-school thing - submitting, with your arse in the air! Either which way, travelling one stop on the tube will cost you well over four pounds (cash)! Oh, and you will probably have to stand, wedged tightly between some smelly bloke with a ruc-sack and an oik wearing chinky-chink earphones. Money well spent I'd say.
from portlypete :
Please sub the first sentence of my previous message so it makes some kind of sense.
from portlypete :
Coveting asses comes by rule six, and you and I both know that "there is no rule six". Anyway, that's covered under rules 3, 5 and 7, which state "no poofters". However, there have been occasions when I've strayed from the straight and narrow and wandered towards the rather curvier and wider. Otherwise, I'm good - thanks for asking - and saving up to buy your debut novel from <strike>Amazon</strike> a reputable bookstore.
from portlypete :
Your entries make soooooo much more sense over on that squiggle site. Traitor!
from portlypete :
I was going to post a note about your bug problem, but typed cockcrotch by mistake. That's the way my mind works I'm afraid.
from portlypete :
So, there I was, browsing DLand because .. well, the reason is too obscure and sad to go into here, when I spotted you had recently made a "public entry"! Since I only pass by this way every third blue moon, I was overjoyed to discover some new updates. Now I know what you have been up to all this time - but you can make beautiful babies and use a keyboard at the same time you know. Well, OK, not exactly at the same time, but within a reasonable time-frame. BTW, I would have fixed your plumbing for the air-fare plus parts.
from dangerspouse :
HAPPY FACE EMOTICON! (Did you ever find that 30cm cake pan?)
from portlypete :
Are you a best-selling author? Are you in the process of negotiating a deal on your first screen-play? I BET YOU ARE! If so, pleae let people who care, know about it. If not that goes a long way to explaining the paucity of first-class films right now.

I am sharpening a very large stick to poke you with! I may have to resort to Class Z drugs if I don't get a Marzipan fix soon. Update, Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,Update,.. Oh! Damn, my "V key" has stuck, and that's never good.

I imagine lute playing raconteurs telling stories to children about Trackworks and its unicorn killing powers. "And so it came to pass children, that with the founding of Trackworks the noble unicorn slipped into the realm of myth. Just as the mighty dragon had when Amway came into being, and the way that Microsoft spelled the griffin's demise. But, perhaps it was for the best young ones, for it was a stupid animal anyway."
from kabukicharms :
My dear friend Lu was unfortunately here in Texas during your whole ordeal. Normally its like a billon and two degrees but for some reason were currently all freezing. He decided he wanted margaritas at the beach. Bastard. While I hate margaritas, I do love the beach in winter, and he was nice enough to buy me a hot toddy so I guess were square. I informed him about your pool suffrage but he said he would get around to it after January, and that honestly its an above ground pool how hard can it be. He then made a salmon tartare and a pitcher of mimosas.
from kabukicharms :
If I learned anything from your post it is that the reason you haven't been on DL is because apparently you've been riding around non stop on a train. Which will teach me never to nap off and miss my stop. Happy Holidays!
from portlypete :
So what ever happened to the "free woman"? Anyhoo, I thought I'd wish you a fantastic Crimble, although how you can enjoy Christmas without snow, and with all that nasty HEAT is beyond me. How does Santa cope? Why doesn't Rudolf expire from heat exhaustion? BBQed turkey - no! BBQed sprouts - even less so. I'll stop there, because I just composed a para about the 'Parsons Nose', which is probably (a) incomprehensible, and (b) obscene. Have an even better 2011.
from portlypete :
What better way to make your commute more bearable than composing diary entries. You should totally go for the stand-up - what's the worst that can happen? Total public humiliation. Not a funny person - don't you read your own diary? ........ I was involved, recently, in a stand-up comics competition (in an extremely peripheral way), but I did notice that the ones who bummed most completely were the 'comics' who relied on foul language and explicit sexual material. Not that you would (?).
from portlypete :
pps I hate the way all white space gets expunged from messages: they get squeezed 'til they resemble a train that's just over-run the buffers at high speed.
from portlypete :
I'm still catching up. There have been 'red rod' moments in my life (we're still talking cars here), when a pair of plastic poo catchers could have come in very handy. - I too have a file of felines that processes through my front garden on a regular basis. But they have a definite purpose, which is not entirely unrelated to the previous para. - Now I come to think of it - Toilet Training Pants for Cats! And I have the perfect jingle ... - The cat shat on the mat Wait while I get a bat I'll knock you sideways into a cocked hat - you brat Take that! and that! and that! Oh look, pussy's completely flat. (ps Cats can be cute in the right place - I'm not saying where that place is, but it sure as hell isn't my lawn).

Or what if off to the side just out of sight was a middle aged man with a perennial hobo beard and a yellow fishermans coat holding a large sack stuffed to the brim with cats just tossing one after the other into your yard?

Dear lord, well thank you for saving me from that as one of my shoes always tends to go missing! Oddly enough it always seems to find its way into any conveniently placed body of water. Last time it was after a wedding and I was down one Stacy Adam which would later turn up soggy and floating upturned in a fountain.

You have clearly missed your vocation. I expect you to start applying for jobs as "artist in residence for Anguished Hungry Bedlinen Weekly" forthwith. Your mastery of MS Paint knows no bounds. s x

from stepfordtart :
When you've done your essay, will you let me read it? Im uncommonly interested in all things linguistical (although you would never know it from reading my diary, natch!). You can keep the hippo biscuits (delightful tho they sound) - my next entry should explain why. s x
from portlypete :
Christmas has come early. The Australian Tattoo Pipes and Drums perform a specially composed piece in honour of the return of MM! The Red Arrows fly past trailing pink smoke and possibly multi-coloured sequins. Would it be out of place to say I'm mildly pleased to see you back?

If you've heard strange noises and noticed peculiar lights in the sky, don't worry. It's just the fanfares, fireworks, possibly a fly-past by the Red Arrows and the general razzamattaz that heralds your return. Please note, with the aid of modern technology like lap-tops and wireless hubs, it is possible to update without leaving your posteriorly patterned pillow. I hate cats by the way.
from coldandgray :
Ooh, Germany. Lucky you. I twittered hard for one year & then was suddenly over it. Such is fad.
from coldandgray :
Sounds like quite a fun night you had. I stayed home & googled!
from buggerthat :
Wow indeed! Many congratulations, although I'm not entirely convinced by your description of yourself as "not a crazy person" - I've read your diary.

That last note makes no sense. I thought since it was 3 in the afternoon here, it was 3 A.M. with you. Now I find it was only midnight. I used to get C- for geography.

Snorting with glee at this entry! Im also not keen on the fashion these days of saying "to help you grow your business". I hear it all the time at work (when someone's being forced to buy something they dont need!) and its just WRONG! 'Help your business to grow', surely? s x
from randomrabbit :
Verbing up nouns is a bugger too.
from buggerthat :
I've never seen as many bumblebees as I have this year. I think the problem is with honey bees, so we should certainly have a 'bees knees-up' if they return. We'll have pollen cake and royal jelly with ice-cream washed down with cask-loads of mead, and we'll dance the waggle dance. I have cherry and apple trees, but it was only while I was typing this that I wondered if their low yield this year is significant.

I do hope he had "Death Chair" written on his death chair and consequently a couple of awkward conversations when he asked his victims to take a seat. "Erm... why does it say death chair on it?" "Oh, er, that's not important. Please, sit."

re. mad scientist and electric chair. You'd have to be really depraved to murder someone like that - sorry Alabama.
from buggerthat :
Thanks for leaving my first note. I have a reader! Since you took the bother, I thought I should return the compliment and look at some of your entries. How can I maintain my grumpy persona reading stuff like that? Consider yourself book-marked.
from coldandgray :
well, look at you, updating like crazy just when I have gone out of town. It was fun catching up, especially the cow touching bits.
from stepfordtart :
I hate those "I WUV YEW" emails too. My friend K and I collect the truly awful ones - ideally they should have glitter, Garfield, animation, Other (possibly mythical) creatures, a money angel (!), and a promise of untold riches. I dont know that hating them's necessarily anything to do with being a woman. They're just shit. s x
from portlypete :
My chosen TV-viewing partner (or theatre-going partner if we're going to be posh) has a 180 degree opposed sense of humour to me. I was laughing so much at Reggie Perrin - then, through a mist of tears, I saw her just looking at me totally bemused. But I didn't care.
from portlypete :
Damn, I just (reluctantly) zapped you from my buddy list. Penis pals? Nah - that smacks of something quite else. Nice to have you back.
from coldandgray :
I liked the BB movie, too. I am starting to hear people did not like it which surprises me. It was oddly unsympathetic.
from portlypete :
Happy New One. How are the piscine lodgers? I hope you've named them all appropriately e.g. Sybil (as in 'don't quibble - or CARP - Sybil'). {That's my NY resolution to parenthesise less blown!} Anyway, I just wondered: for relief from Channel 9, have you tried the BBC web site? There's a special Christmas QI on there; but hurry, it's only up for another day. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00gdl1v
from portlypete :
Well, that's not very charitable after I travelled half way round the world! Sent packing for the want of a gift-wrapped box-set of 'QI' DVDs. I don't take rejection well, so I shall be laughing uproariously through every second of the new series. (Such a shame you won't be able to join in the fun). In truth, I would send you a boot-leg batch if I could, and I wish you both much joy in your new home.

As someone who endured many tedious german classes, pondering why it was necessary to have genders at all, and why the (stereotypically logical) germans came up with "das Mdchen" - the original IT Girl, I'm definitely with MT on this one.
from portlypete :
Re self-employment, my only regret is that I didn't do it years ago. Considering I haven't even gone out looking for work and that I'm booked up 'til the New Year, I'd have to declare it a success ... plenty of time for the global recession to piss on my parade though. So far the 'meedja' in the UK have declared a 'Black Monday', a 'Black Friday' and, I seem to remember, a 'Charcoal-Grey Wednesday'. Pretty soon we'll run out of days of the week. I'm dreaming of a 'White Christmas'.
from coldandgray :
OMFG, you have no idea how excited I am for you! the house sounds so amazingly perfect. I am sorry the process takes so long, but it will be worth is when you finally get to move in. CONGRATS!

Nanna's rock. She probably even guided Daniel's finger over that keyboard. I won't even mention all the things that could still go wrong (oh, I think I just did), but with a feisty gran watching over you, who cares!?

House buying is so awesome in theory. Even once you find the perfect place it then TAKES forever with many paper signing and waiting waiting. Good luck! I loved the chocolate bar marriages, but guess what? Now I want a chocolate bar, even a gay one.

I do sincerely hope that you'll be 'thinking outside the box', with diary entries to 'grow your readership', when you do update. (Im not a big fan of meetings, either!). s x

The bin thing is wrong in "let me count the ways" - no, it's too many ways to count. As for the person who handed over secret documents to the BBC's news department, I would imagine he /she could be in serious poo poo. Hope the home-hunting is going well, and that your housing market doesn't suffer what ours is going through.
from stepfordtart :
I can raise one eyebrow! In our house its called "The Eyebrow of Doom" as its aooearance usually signals that something bad has just happened and now something really REALLY bad is gonna happen to the person that made that bad thing happen. Kids and husbands scatter in all directions at its appearance! s x
from coldandgray :
Well, what type of job do you think you should be doing? Hope you find the perfect job or like yourself more doing the current one...
from portlypete :
Re hush-hush documents, I think 'c' is the right answer. Do you think we would ever have known how cavalier our not-so-secret service are with our sensitive information if the papers had been handed to the police? By the way, there was another almost identical incident with some other secret papers on the very same day.

Nothing dorkish here. The Guide is clearly the most brilliant and innovative radio programme ever. For myself, I empathise strongly with Marvin, but lack his planet sized brain (which you may have already guessed).

As I stand here holding my lollipop, I must say say that any salary raise feels like a condescension if you aren't really making the obscene amounts of money you feel entitled to in your head. Sad truth that most people do not feel that grammar/linguistic arts are valuable because well, they can talk, can't they? Yours in editorial sympathy.

I found Sasha's Filet knife in his T-shirt drawer. Probably hiding it from me so I wont chop celery with it.

I only just realised that my previous note to you got posted three times. "New York, New York, so good they named it twice". Well, I went one better. Not that the content really deserved that much exposure. Sorry.

"Smashing cheese, Gromit!"
from coldandgray :
I don't know where you got that, but that is EXACTLY what you are. In fact, I am updating my buddy caption for you!
from coldandgray :
sorry about your peanuts. I just got a raise and although i am happy with it, I realize it will be a full year before I get another one. Sad. We just got bought by another huge corp, so maybe I should just hope they don't can me before then.
from coldandgray :
Sorry about my D'land rant yesterday. I think I am all caught up on you now and here are my responses to some of the stuff you wrote, in no particular order: The particle accelerator sounds so neat and terrifying. The stuff people spend their time on. Creating your own black hole is pretty nifty. Congrats on becoming an editor. That is so HUGE! That adds you about 100 mF of cool. Cut Lunch??? I am so sad there is no pic of pirate pidge. Gray Zone + poo sounds = AGREE. Marzipan fly = awesome. I like what you said about "when I grow up" you want less. I am so with you. You did an amazing job planning a wedding in 4 months. You looked so beautifully radiant and calm in your dress & Daniel seems so happy and content. YAY!! and yes, you are a custard tart.
from coldandgray :
Turns out it was not just you, other diaries got bumped off, too and yet others that have not updated in years still sit in my list. What is going on here?
from coldandgray :
wait wait wait wait wait wait wait. I feel like I just woke up. I just realized that you had somehow fallen off my buddy list (I don't think I removed you, why would I?) and not only that but you have been updating pretty frequently since February! and not only that but you are freaking MARRIED! I need to go back and catch up on everything with you. I had been getting your very kind comments from time to time, I do not know why it did not occur to me to look for you on my buddy list, but so many people just stop updating. Since you did not light up red I just thought you were not updating & had no clue you just were not on my list. Shit. I am so sorry. Glad that got sorted out and now I can catch up and wish you very huge congratulations to you & Daniel. Phew!

from juddhole :
You're freaking brilliant sometimes, you know? I ran into the same damn thing in Lancelin and had almost the EXACT SAME CONVERSATION about the roadworks. OMG, seriously, verbatim. Complete with the attitude. Email me or sommat so I don't have to keep telling you shit like this via notes, eh? Smooches.
from juddhole :
Dinky*, I hope this email makes it (edit:it obviously didn't because I'm leaving this in your notes), cos I wanted to tell you huge Congratulations and give you a hug the kind where I squeeze you until you squeak a little bit and then I rub my beard into your neck and make you squeak a little more. Good on ya, and on the Daniel too. Dont know im, but seems a good sort and seems to make YOU happy, which pleases me. Hope things are nothing but the best for you, and that the future treats you like you shared your last piece of chocolate with it. Smooches -Judd *youll always be Dinky to me.

Glad work is feeling better & that you & Daniel are doing so well.

RIGHT ON! WOO! WOO! WOO! Congrats to you both. Let's hear more about this job. (& I don't agree with LeFart, I like that pic)
from le-fart :
Hey, btw, dont know if you like suggestions or not, but I could really imagine a field of flowers as a picture, instead of the girl. I think the flowers would make it seem more emotional which you are, the girl looks too static, too plain, uhm, too...symbolic, if you can feel me. So long

Hi again, no, the diary is blank. Im having a penfriend right now to let it all out, so thats where it goes. Yours is real funny and well written though. Youre funny! Well, ok, anyway, bye. Oh hey, it was so creepy: the penfriend of mine also has multiple diaries, and hes just hinting which ones are his. I started telling him about this and was wondering if it was his, too-and then some weird coincidences happened!! I live in Germany-and, you know, just when I told him you posted that entry about how you wanted to go to Germany see your relatives and conjugate verbs and stuff! And I was like: If this is him, too, then Im freaked out. Uh, anyway. Probably just a funny coincidence. OK, well, bye!
from spazs :
Started reading because I cant resist marzipan, haha, even when its not eatable, apparently. Hey...Im sure that first boyfriend of yours you feel guilty for leaving him, I think he isnt mad at you. Im sure he blames himself, too! Im sure you dont have to beat yourself up for it. A lot of people I know feel guilty for leaving their first boyfriend. Im thinking that maybe it was very common to stick with the first guy in former times. And now its changing, but we have it still in our bones, and have a bad conscience when the first relationship breaks up. I know that from so many people that they torment themselves when the first relationship didnt work out.

Going away together sounds so nice; too bad you can't make it all the way out to Whistler! and you have loads of artisitic talent. I was just looking at the drawing you did for my guest entry way back when & am utterly impressed!

I just got back from celebrating Thanksgiving, an USA tradition of turkey eating and drinking way too much. I loved your long hand entry & will read the previous entry & comment more once the wine gets slept off or something. Hi!
from coldandgray :
Wow! Such kind words from you, M. Nice to be hearing from you, I miss your writing. Sasha's cousin just moved to New Zealand from the U.S. and they celebrated Guy Faulkes day & there were loads of fire works. They even went trick or treating, but did not get much candy going door to door. Good luck on your quest, halloween rules!
from coldandgray :
Hey, M! What a nice surprise to get a note from you, thank you for your supportive words. Sorry no Halloween for you, but is Guy Fawlkes day lots of fun?
from coldandgray :
After 6 months I was shocked to see your buddy light glow red. I want to hear more of this printing co.
from coldandgray :
...i miss this girl...
from coldandgray :
I LOVE that photo of you, very cute!
from coldandgray :
FIXED as of 7:15 pm 3/23 PST (next week, your time)
from coldandgray :
I just noticed that the link from your entry to your own site does not work, but I am not sure why. I am going to create a link on the sidebar.
from coldandgray :
You hit it out of the park! You are awesome! Thanks for playing!
from coldandgray :
I love the love post. I am relieved, too, because I am co-dependant and could not help but wonder if you did in fact snow board off a cliff. Glad you are enjoying life.
from coldandgray :
Now I am totally starting to worry...
from coldandgray :
Where the frick is Ljubljana!? Glad you are having fun.
from f-i-n :
amazing pictures....
from coldandgray :
I know what you mean, I am always right on track that when a delay of just a few hours occurs I go: HUH?! Glad it worked out OK. I can't believe that cockatoo was wild, so neat!
from coldandgray :
I too love the wind. What kind of a bird was that? Was it someone's pet that got loose? Cool.
from coldandgray :
I had never seen his comedy series, but had heard of it & just CANNOT imagine. Did you see him in Chopper? The whole HULK thing was embarrassing.
from clarity25 :
I love windy days, The gusts of fresh air can really brighten my day too. I feel so alive. (as long as it's not *bitter* cold) What a cool bird!
from coldandgray :
I am very jealous of your bobsledding, but moreso excited for you. I wrote you a note about your Heath a few days ago, but I had a computer crash in the middle of it. Anyway, I like him, but I like your Eric Bana More. He was so great in Chopper, but really he is a Hot Piece of !!!
from clarity25 :
Thanks so much for your last note! It's good to know I'm not alone in how I felt about the whole family background situation. It can just be intimidating at times:), also thanks for your feedback on the Asthma situation with my mother. I enjoyed reading your list of jobs, I didn't know you designed mudflaps. That's actually pretty cool and unique! I hope you're having a good week:)
from clarity25 :
I'm sorry to hear about the bike being stolen! That would really bring me down too:(, It's hard to keep things in the right perspective when your private space is invaded and something you worked hard for is removed. You just stop feeling safe.
from coldandgray :
Kitchens are expensive. We want to redo ours & my husband is a carpenter, so he can do most of the work, but we are still going to have to pay out the ass for cabinetry & all the other good stuff. In the end, it will be worth it.
from coldandgray :
I like your mom. Congrats on the camera. I recenltly got one & really like it. Hope to see some of your pics someday.
from clarity25 :
Teaching yourself German from a book is REALLY REALLY hard. I know what you mean, that's how I learned. The pronounciation is so hard. Although I now understand everything everyone says to me in this country, I still shy away from speaking whenever possible. Lucky for me, Everyone thinks my "American Accent" is sexy. Maybe I'll post a sound file for your amusement some time. Congrats on the digital camera. Might I ask what kind you got and how much you paid. Since my camera was stolen, I'm on the hunt for a new one that's somewhat affordable and 4.1 megapixels or above. I miss taking pictures. THe ones you described taking sounded fun, you should post them. If you don't have a gold membership, you can sign up for Photobucket. (something to consider) Thank you for your last note, and take care!
from coldandgray :
Happy New Year! I lied your resolutions, especially #4. Money Spider? Your holiday sounded interesting and I am glad you wrote about it. Xmas in summer seems so odd, though. I love that Daniel sang along to Mad World. The end part of your entry, put a fuzzy knot in my throat, so sweet.
from clarity25 :
that picture of the Huntsman spiders left me shaking and severely disturbed. I couldn't stop trembling. thank you for sharing that:)
from coldandgray :
I saw the riots on the news. I love how the media stirs shit up. Glad you were there for your boy, that was a sweet story. Hope he is feeling better.
from coldandgray :
I love this: Daniel has decided that he is a Greek God called Impervius. I love clouds, too. My pen name is actually: CLOUDY. I think I am catching up now, woosh!
from clarity25 :
I love clouds too, It holds such a fascination for me. I take so many photographs of the sky and the cloud formations during different times of the day. I've also painted that on different occasions.
from coldandgray :
I think if my name was Alana & I saw the sky writing (after the plane was long gone), I would ctap my pants & wonder if Jesus wrote it.
from coldandgray :
I am behind on your updates, on EVERYONE'S updates. The work merger is killing me. I am hoping to normalize soon, but who knows.
from clarity25 :
The part of your entry about teaching different animals self-defense had me completely cracking up! P.S. Thank you so much for your last note.
from clarity25 :
Wow, your writing is beautiful. I came just to leave you a note saying "thank you for your last note", but than I was captivated with your journal. I'll be back to read more.. You also have a really well-made layout, that instantly struck me when I saw it! Really really nice!
from serenaville :
My. Thank you very much, for adding Serenaville to your faves/buddy list! What a pleasant surprise! However unexpected for you, I'm glad to have found you from the get-go. That way, as others belatedly catch on to become part of the adoring masses, I can say "Pffft. Yeah, but I knew her when...!" ;) Thanks again! P.S. Thanks for having my back on the 'Orange:Flange' thing. Great minds think alike, 'Marzipan' and otherwise! ;D *HUGS* -Serena
from serenaville :
Ah, you turned your notes on! Just wanted to say I found your space via the member's area (Your diary ident intrigued me), and I like what I've read thus far. I'll be checking back regularly. Take care! :)
