from missy-17 :
hello im 18 and i have alot on my mind right now!!! i loved your diary and i just had to comment on it!!! you seem like a very cool person to talk to and write emails to!!!!! so how old are you and what kind of things are you into i am waiting to get to know this!!!
from arc-angel666 :
Good Afternoon Ms Mousepoet: I was surfing the members area and I came across a Mouse Poet....Hmmmmmm. Do you write poetry about Mice? Do you recite poetry to Mice? Do Rodents appreicate your poetry? I believe I'd appreicate your work unfortunately I can't get into your archives. So here's what I'm suggesting...Let me know of your next recital and I shall bring enough Cheese for everyone. In your honor I have written a poem...a poem about an Man and his Mouse. I share my home with a lovely female Mouse/Her name is Abigail she lives within the walls of my house/She is plumb and sassy and sweet/unfortunately Claude the Cat thinks she something good to eat/She is funny, and playful and a flirt/I think she likes Girls she's always running up my girlfriend's skirt/At night she walks on my head and whispers in my ear/Hey lover just think what I'd do to you if I were a woman loaded on beer/She says Lover sleep in as long as you please/For I'll play in your underwear drawer and rumage thru your trash in search of Cheese. :-) My name is Michael and Ms Mousepoet I'm pleased to meet you.

To join the circle, simply join the diaryring called "circle" ~ To find out more, check out /about.html *winks* Hope to talk to you soon. :) ~Pink
from zostrich :

from captvfirefly :
No shame in therapy, my friend. It takes a strong person to admit when they don't feel like themselves and ask for help from someone else (at least that's what people tell me). I hope it helps - maybe they can hook you up with a new job? I know how you feel about your job ... yes, it's time to get out of that soul crushing place. ((HUGS))
from soldiergirl :
I could tell you were raised here. :-) My almost ex-husband Boaz was born and raised in the Philippines - Laog. Speaks fluent Tagalog. Our son Bubbles was born and raised here in the states... half Filipino. Amerasian to be exact. As though Continents define a person. Filipinos are beautiful people! Love the year-round tan. Skin and dark hair remain thick, vibrant, and healthy looking. Wish I were born a tall Filipino woman.
from soldiergirl :
You are a fantastic poet. Not sure if you are native-born Filipino. Sometimes our words tell on us.
from zostrich :
:( while i partially understand her reasoning, and the logic behind it, i really don't think it's fair to blame these traits on any one person other than the people in power. most americans, if you sat them down, wouldn't support blanket killing. they support an ideology, not necessarily each of its tenets. that's why i registered independent: i don't feel like being tied to anything unless i agree with it in its entirety, and i just don't think that's very likely. i'm sorry if i misinterpreted your entry, and thank you for not getting mad at me.
from zostrich :
i'm 18 years old. and i voted. this was my first election. and i voted for kerry. and i'm from florida. and my best friend, who is 19, voted for bush. and that was okay with me. i love your writing and i love your diary, but when i read your entry today i sat in front of my computer for the next five minutes feeling like i'd been kicked in the stomach. not all of us are lazy or stupid or ignorant. i'm a minority, my parents are immigrants. most people dislike john kerry to begin with, but feel he is the lesser of two evils. at least i did. but i think it was okay to vote bush. it doesn't make you a bad person. voting the way you feel, and having convictions, doesn't make anyone a horrible or ignorant individual. and it really made me sad today to find out that you think it does.
from milkmaid :
YOU may not do any of those evil things you listed, but when you vote for a fascist pig like Bush, YOU aid and abet those who do.
from shortst101 :
I really liked your entry today
from o-jasmine-o :
Beautiful.
from captvfirefly :
Just wanted to say "hello" as we haven't chatted in quite a while. I miss your updates, but understand if you're doing the "having a life" thing. And I presume that you have not, in fact, won the lottery yet? ;) LOL
from dana-elayne :
Three years ago this summer you helped save me! I'll be sad to see you go, but I'm so happy for your happiness, your joys, and your hurrahs! :)
from ryarianne :
congrats
from shortst101 :
we don't mind the loop so much when we have the 'thank yous' and hugs from our kids. They make it all worthwhile.
from shortst101 :
hope the blahhhs go away soon, hugs
from leasophia :
I really like "three-thirty" Makes me see what your words say
from trinity63 :
I know lots about mastoid stuff -- if you need any information let me know.
from o-jasmine-o :
I love your writing. That's all I have to say.
from trinity63 :
sure hope he feels better, you taking him to the doctor I hope?
from mulher :
WonderWoman is a keeper ... and I'm still dying to have another get-together, what say you man???
from cassiopeia- :
Happy Valentine's Day! kisses, cassie
from maladroit17 :
aww...absolutely envious. you must be very happy.
from zostrich :
enfp? me too.
from shortst101 :
you didn't do an exit review for the diaryland survivor?
from shortst101 :
lol, you have to be kidding me with the hello kitty thing! ugh is right
from dana-elayne :
*urgh* I don't think that's one of the seven signs. Of course, I'm a bit biased.
from pushpull :
how could you tell he went to Cal??? ;) he graduated in '97.
from girl-aflame :
Blah. You were always too high brow for that game and the other players anyway.
from girl-aflame :
I'll bet your son grows up to be a wonderful person.. not unlike his father *smiles*
from cassiopeia- :

from maladroit17 :
wow. just recently i had this weird epiphany about having children. i never wanted any before. i figured it was way too much trouble and pain to go through, just so you could dedicate 18 years of your life to something ungrateful - but anyhow. now i want children, well not now, not at 16. but eventually. 28 or 30. simple things are the best.
from badluckcharm :
hi, just checking up and tellin ya hey. Sorry that you were feeling down, i think it was something about this week and last week. I haven't been feeling to perky myself. But when you look at your kids all those good feelings come rushing back. stay good, til next time
from odalisk :
what does fake pepperoni consist of? A question, gentle poet, I am wise enough not to ask.
from trinity63 :
my spouse is in at the office today as well, looking over his projects that he manages and saying pretty much the same thing. He trecked out into the snow for that.
from pushpull :
hope you weren't cheering for VA Tech...Mark said they were surrounded by VA Tech fans...and they did a lot of shit-talking. i'm just glad they made it home alive.
from shortst101 :
I'm sorry you are now sick...Hope you feel better soon. Also, have a Merry Christmas.
from captvfirefly :
I'm just getting caught up - I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. My thoughts are with you and your family. (hugs)
from pushpull :
don't worry about it. you had to get rid of someone. i'm sorry to hear about your grandmother...my thoughts are with you.
from tokcocktok :
Hi there, I'm just randomly stopping by. Anyways, happy holidays :)
from odalisk :
I'm going to Oregon in a couple of weeks to visit my grandmother, who is dying. It's been on my mind a lot recently. There's something really terrifying about this cold-hearted planning of my "final" visit, and something very important as well. One of my professors' mother died during the semester, and she's a beautiful, accomplished woman, and ever since her face has been sort of haggard, her eyes red. She only missed a week of classes. So there's been something about that, too: watching a strong woman grieve, hiddenly.
from odalisk :
I'm sorry about your grandmother. I've gotten to the age now where grandparents are dying...often...and it's strange. It's the thing that happens before parents start dying. It's like a premonition, in a way. Watching my dad watch his mother die has been horrible. It's sort of strange, in itself, to see my dad as this woman's child. Which I never properly did before. I hope she lived a good life.
from teop :
I was sorry to hear about your grandmother. I'll be keeping her as well as you and your family in my thoughts. Peace, teop
from trinity63 :
I am so sorry. Is there anything I can do?
from shortst101 :
I'm sorry about your grandmother. Hugs
from dana-elayne :
I'm so terribly sorry about your grandmother. *hugs*
from teop :
I'll keep your son (as well as you and your wife) in my thoughts and prayers; I know how bad the flu can be in little ones. I hope he's OK and recovers quickly...
from shortst101 :
I'm sorry he has the flu, i hope he's feeling better soon. Hugssssssss for all of you.
from odalisk :
that was really lovely.
from wendyloo :
Awww and I really liked this entry. I barely noticed the assigned words because it flowed. The other tribe's entry bored me after about 10 lines and I barely skimmed it. In theirs, the assigned words stood out like a 4th graders using spelling words in sentances. And don't even get me started on using the Michael Jackson scandal, bleck.
from odalisk :
oh, poo! You won the award challenge - you won the first individual challenge, and the first group challenge - you have still single-handedly won more ICs than anyone else! Let's see...out of a total of five, you have won three! Almost singlehandedly! Is this game only fair to you if you win every single time? What a bore that would be for everyone else! And you said in your own diary that you had no faith in your IC! Poo!
from o-jasmine-o :
I can't believe your son actually walks! I bumped into you again. Last I remember reading from your diary -- I think -- is that your son was born. Damn I've been away too long. I love your writing.
from cosmicrayola :
Yes, you do write alot about your son in you diary. And I for one, am glad. Today's entry was beautiful.
from odalisk :
That kind of comment made more sense when I was 16 than it does now. I find pregnancy repugnant, actually. Pregnant women give me the creeps. I hate having a period. But too bad. I have the body I have. We all do. I can't imagine actually wanting to opt for an experience which deforms your body permanently, thickens your ankles, and mauls your breasts. My point is really: we all want what we don't have, there are disadvantages to every situation, c'est la vie.
from odalisk :
I'd give you my uterus if I could, dude. I don't want it. But I guess the grass is always greener.
from strangerlucy :
I love 'reminder'; it's beautifully written.
from odalisk :
why must everybody quote me on that!!! Aaack!
from cosmicrayola :
Your original IC poem was fantastic! Poe would have been proud.
from call911 :
Hiya, I keep trying to email you and it bounces. Email me with something I can reply to, k...cuz I'd like to share a few thoughts with ya! BTW, I'm loving your poems...a couple of the ones recently about your son, just made me tear up...you are very talented..don't ever forget that! Cheers!
from girl-aflame :
*blushes and mumbles* as if artwork could ever be really "judged"
from odalisk :
You know, our IC might just win w/out any particular agenda. And your IC did win last week - and it didn't much involve an island. I don't know why nobody got all pissy about that last week. But in any case, your efforts have already brought home the laurels - unlike anybody else's. Maybe the judges just feel like slapstick this week. You never know.
from verucaamish :
Thanks for the great show of support. My secret desire in joining Diaryland Survivor was to find more diaryland sites to read. A diaryland friend of mine once wrote that what she really wanted to was find a diaryland that she could read from the very beginning, like a book. I've been doing that with yours because your voice and use of language is really compelling. So, mission accomplished!
from trinity63 :
I wanted to say the entry about your son, was incredible. Your gift is just overwhelming. Never lose touch with who you are, that's what makes a fabulous poet:) Take care:) I appreciate you listing me.
from pushpull :
wha?!?! where do i get chinese food outside of los angeles? it's everywhere...you can't shake a stick without hitting a chinese restaurant. admittedly, some are better than others. china town, obviously, has the best, but there's a little hole-in-the-wall place near my work called "Golden Dragon" that has no ambiance but excellent food. i do make a mean beef & broccoli, if i do say so myself, and my chicken stir-fry is pretty good. sorry about stereotyping you as "the quiet one"...i think it's the lowercase typing.
from odalisk :
No no, of course I wasn't upset. My numeral was really very flattering. Although I'm upset that I only know two of the Arabic words: min fadlik, of course, and sokar, which ought to be sugar? Are you using a dialect? Or is it just my ever-pathetic vocabulary? Is abgha 'to desire'? (ba, ghayn, alif maksoura/ya?) That's the closest I could find in the dictionary. It sounds familiar though. I do know...ghalaba (to overcome) and balagha (to reach, attain).
from kiss-a-frog :
Don't worry, sometimes it's hard for *me* to read me. That's why I generally don't edit for clarity or content, what you see is straight out of my head. (That sounds kind of bloody.. ew.)
from cassiopeia- :
WOW.
from odalisk :
I had somebody give a presentation in class (on Eva Hesse) based around 13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird last week. It must be a very Wallace Stevens moment. Great, anyhow.
from odalisk :
Man. Your diary is just great. I am your new #1 Fan.
from odalisk :
Yeppers. I'm a grad student at Hahvad...very new to Boston, but here for a while.
from odalisk :
I really love your diary. It's wonderful. I'm so glad you're a diaryland survivor contestant.
from call911 :
Trinity summed it up pretty well! Congrats and good luck - be talking with ya soon! Cheers - Call911
from cosmicrayola :
What Trinity said. Ditto. This should be a fun time.
from trinity63 :
Hey congrats on Dsurvivor 5! I look forward getting to know you and having you as a cast away on Oak Island:)
from shortst101 :
I hope your little guy is feeling better soon and yes we really do miss alot when we have to work.....it sucks
from intheory27 :
The same template absurdities just happened to my best friend. She tried to upload everything back and nothing would follow through. Andrew must be up to something crazy.
from girl-aflame :
Oh no! If you need layout help, perhaps I can be of assistance. Do let me know!
from wendyloo :
Ohh that sucks about your template. I did that to myself once.
from lookin4liz :
I read your entry about the hawk and the sparrow...and I just got it. *smile* It inspired me to write about something similiar, and I wanted to thank you for the muse ability this morning. Cheers- ~lizbeth
from shortst101 :
you know what? your right, you are never too old! <smiles> Happy Monday
from shortst101 :
hope your feeling better
from moxiemoron :
I found your diary thru fate/links. It is almost 2am, and tears are rollng down my cheek and Im going to kiss my almost 14 year old daughter on her cheek while she sleeps. Thank you for making me cry.
from ryarianne :
enjoyed this one tremendously... i didn't quite make the leap from annoyed to peaceful today (or at least not in today's entry) but it's gorgeous to read they way you did (i especially liked pitching the black totem form motorola bit...)
from zostrich :
hey. i've said it before, i know, but i absolutely love the poem before last. the last one was awesome too, but i think you really capture the essence of what parenthood SHOULD be when you talk about your son.
from hlm79 :
Hey, thanks for your note... I know, is it not the most ridiculous thing to be arguing over? But I am definitely putting my foot down now, I am too fed up with this stupidity anymore. These kind of things shouldn't be an issue. I shouldn't have to struggle just to get a nap in.
from shortst101 :
Happy Birthday to your little one! ~smiles~
from shortst101 :
I know I have told you this before but I love reading your diary. The last two entries were awesome.
from sarmo592 :
Hey i really enjoy your poems! I just thought i would let you know that!! Check my diary out sometime i write a lot of poetry too, i guess if you can even call it that. Keep up the good work. Sara
from ryarianne :
great jonatha brooke quote... and now i can't recall - was she one i told you about, or did i mention her to you and you confirmed an existing influence? anyway, that's a random side thought - really was just wondering which song its from, 'cause i know i know it, but i can't recall...
from shortst101 :
You have many things to teach your son and I'm sure he will teach you many things as well. Your entry today or I should say last night was very touching.
from girl-aflame :
Sorry your eyes hurt :-( hope your glasses get fixed soon!
from hlm79 :
Hey, I saw you added me to your buddylist, just wanted to tell you thanks :)
from dana-elayne :
Happy Birthday, Mr. Mouse.
from shortst101 :
Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday to you! Hope your day is filled with smiles and happiness.
from mulher :
We face each other as God intended. Sportsmanlike. No tricks, no weapons, skill against skill alone.
from dana-elayne :
No, his family has my number. They'd call. I know if it were something major like that. And, I've thought about that. If there were something going on in the family, it's just as bad that he shut me out.
from thespark :
I run a diaryring/community. I'd like for you to join the ring. E-mail me, if you're interested.
from shortst101 :
I really liked your entry from today about your son.
from teop :
what a beautiful, beautiful way to spend a friday afternoon! :)
from destinnevaeh :
i really enjoy your writting.. you are very talented:)
from banefulvenus :
wow! amazing site!!
from shortst101 :
I happened upon your diary today after signing someone else's diary. Hope you don't mind, but I would love to come back and read more.
from teop :
thanks for signing my guestbook.:) bummer about not having an identical twin. i guess i'll have to settle for mickey or donald at disneyland!;) then again, they already have partners. maybe tigger - no too ADHD for me. goofy it will be then - i think we'd make a great pair. have a great weekend - i hope it's better than the last couple of days have been for you.
from teop :
i'm so sorry to hear about the money theft and the fact that it's highly probable that your sister-in-law did it. that is just...i can't even find the words for it - that anyone could stoop that low. i have no words of advice - it's an awful and stressful situation...i'm so sorry.
from ryarianne :
have imentionned lately how much i enjoy reading your poetry? most recently īgoī especially... oh and thanks, by the way, for the other week, for letting me rant and rave, and for offering sensible yet not annoying replies ; )
from xgreymousex :
interesting...i think i'll come back sometime...i like this
from dana-elayne :
Don't you hate that. Wouldn't it be far better for them to come to you if they had a problem? Of course, what could they complain about? You work long hours. You give 100%. *argh* What was the deal with the higher ups today!?
from dana-elayne :
Don't you hate that. Wouldn't it be far better for them to come to you if they had a problem? Of course, what could they complain about? You work long hours. You give 100%. *argh* What was the deal with the higher ups today!?
from badluckcharm :
I was just wondering where your parents migrated from? just interested. thanks

from shereen :
my high school had 2 proms also. very sad. i went to both.
from dana-elayne :
Why so sad?
from hippie5 :
People are so horrendously rude. What business was it of that lady's what you and your son were wearing? Don't let it bother you, just shrug it off. There are many rude people out there, but I think the good ones outnumber the bad.
from shereen :
i don't have a gold membership, heh.
from caralynne :
five months old. wow. i remember so clearly the entries leading up to his birth. the anticipation. then the first entry after your wee little son entered the world. now i read five months old in disbelief. but there it is, in black and white. it sounds silly, im sure, as you see him in the flesh each day and are grateful each day that you do. but i see five months old and i think where has the time gone? hes raising a child, making a difference. i see five months old and think that its five months more that i will never get back. i wish your wife sleep, your son joy to compensate the pain of teething, and you, all the best of everything.
from infamousdot :
hey sweetpea, it's renee...'member me? just thought i would drag up my old DL journal only i couldn't recall the name of it..so read infamousdot if ya like..though DL won't let me update today...so...its all kinda old heh nice to see you still write wonderfully tho, dear

from topazgirl :
Happy Heart Day!!
from euphoria21 :
You've been on my favorites list for a while and everytime I drop by I remember why I put you in the first place, you're good. You have a very lucky family.
from angryquail :
No sarcasm: my eyes teared up in sympathy upon hearing of your laptop's amnesia. I should also say I really love your writing. I've had you on my favorites list and I left diaryland and I might be back and you remain, buddy.
from siunim :
...raising kids is hard sometimes as man...its good to read someone else's experience....yeah, it's everywhere the same.. hi..have a nice day ..:)
from invisibledon :
Thanks for visiting
from shereen :
thought i'd let you know, you left your sn logged in on a school comp, and some kids were talking to me, weirding me out until i realized it wasn't you. hehe. they said i should warn you. :)
from catsnapples :
My guestbook is working. Stop by again:)
from catsnapples :
I wish I could be a fly on your wall and watch your "play time" with the babe. I continue to be enterained and amazed at your out-look on fatherhood, the advice you espouse, and your incredable knack for putting humor into seemilgly dull situations.
from teop :
I've been reading your journal for about over a month now and love your sharing of your fatherhood experience. Congratulations on your newest addition to your family. It sounds as though you're an awesome dad and husband, and I wish you all the best. Keep writing - you have an amazing way with words. Thank you for sharing with the rest of us... :)
from dana-elayne :
I read how happy you are. I'm glad. It's a blue sky happiness...no clouds. I think of you warmly and fondly and always with a smile. :)
from ryarianne :
and i was right... reading your latest entries makes me smile - especially 'moment'
from catsnapples :
At the time my husband's grandmother wrote poems for each of our chilren, I didn't think much of them. I was too busy, and too tired. But now that some time has passed, and she is also gone, those poems are very dear. Keep writing to you son. He will always remember you for your thoughts and insights. catsnapples
from ryarianne :
congratulations michael... it is tough for me to imagine you with a child, i suppose given the nature of our last face-to-face conversations, even though they were forever ago. but i know you'll make a wonderful one.
from shereen :
awww....*grins* what's his name? congrats, hon.
from hippie5 :
Yay! Congratulations, hon, I know you're positively thrilled! Keep us updated on how things are going with the new parents and baby :-) Sending the best of wishes your way...
from topazgirl :
Awwwwww, CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS!!!! Did you guys stick with Fox for the name? He was born on Dillon's birthday, yay!! *Hugs* to you and Sheila and Baby! ~Jessica
from chriistyl :
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Say hi to the baby boy for me! What is his name?
from shereen :
i want you to write something about your wife. i want to know why you love her.
from ryarianne :
now you've got it in MY head : p
from hippie5 :
Welcome to the world of Pop, baby ;-) Where it's not quality but the subliminal messages and the urge to buy lots of merchandise is what counts!
from dana-elayne :
Whoooo the season has begun...and your bears won! YEAH!
from ryarianne :
seems like we were in the same space today, though for different reasons...
from chriistyl :
HI!!! I love your writing.... though I have already told you that before. Proof of why your diary deserves to be voted the best... "everything around me moves slowly these days, that at night while i was looking at the Perseids even the ticking of my alarm clock was honey at the bottom of a jar, that i could watch the meteor white across the night sky as if it were an etch -a-sketch and i had the white knobs to spell my name if i wished." God, I wish I could write like that!!! When is the baby due by the way?
from ryarianne :
(re: blue) wow. i like.
from ryarianne :
so you are still reading... glad i haven't entirely dropped off the radar screen ;) btw - will you email me at my fatefulpurse account? i've lost your email account, and, if you're ok with it, would like to forward ona piece to you for your critique/commentary.
from euphoria21 :
Don't remember who mentoned you but I'm glad I listened to them. I've beenreading and I can't deciher the difference between poetry and just writing about your day. That makes it even better. Thanks!!!!!
from dana-elayne :
Grrrrr...how jerky! I hope she gets to feeling better. That boss sounds like he needs a good swift kick in the balls. Like having a baby isn't stressful enough in and of itself!
from zerom3ph :
i feel your pain. i used to work at an inbound call center. i didn't know just how dumb the american populace could be until then. now i weep for this countries future, really i do.
from hemopoetic :
been reading for a while now. banner keeps popping up, yes but i first came across your diary by accident. do not remember how. i like what i read. i thought it was time to add you to my buddylist. just letting you know, dear.
from mulher :
querida, i'm hoping to score another get-together before they make another IceAge movie... when can we do this thing???? HMMMMMMMM?????
from autumnal :
this is really sweet. found you via v. cool banner.
from slick45 :
i'll eat you all for breakfast.
from chriistyl :
I hope you will check my diary out again... the day you looked last time I had a particulary sentimental rhyming poem.. not something I typically write.... rhyming poetry is not my cup of tea.... i hope you will check out my mind of a poet page.... i admire your work and would appreciate feedback from you on mine. thanx... joanna
from ryarianne :
you are sooo bizarre honey... i just can't imagine you using the word 'dude'... just seems completely out of place somehow
from pixiebee :
you are wonderful wonderful wonderful. thankyou for your thoughts, just being thought about is healing in itself.
from meowth2007 :
Hey! Your diary really rocks! You should keep writing!
from ryarianne :
why beyond the reasons already described? or the why behind the reasons already described?
from ryarianne :
i'm impressed with the strawberries piece...
from shereen :
edamame is gooood... :)
from pixiebee :
"strawberries"....so so yummy, yummy indeed
from shereen :
*smile* thanks dear
from shereen :
life is confusing.
from halo313 :
have you ever published a book of your writing?
from evanescing :
God... PLEASE keep writing.
from shereen :
i hope it goes alright with the baby...you've got me all anxious now
from dana-elayne :
Good luck! :)
from zoopy :
I love your words... keep writing..
from agitated :
beautiful :)
from shereen :
you said grok... :)
from pixiebee :
your flu-poems are so effective. as a nursing student, i'm thinking of all these ways to try to make you feel better. as someone who lives far away, i just nod sympathetically and say out loud "eat some soup dear. take your vitamins." feel better!
from dana-elayne :
*box of kleenex and some phish food* hope you're feelin' better soon :)
from ines :
You find beauty in the substance of your life. You let it sustain you and you source your life out of it. A true poet. Thanks for the note and making my day.
from ines :
I appreciate your poetry. Thank you. You are one of my favorite reads. I just know you'll be a great dad.
from shereen :
i like your poem about poopy diapers and your future self. (4-10-02)
from mulher :
pitter patter of tiny feet... I hear them
from katiebailey :
Thanks for leaving me a note. I can forgive that you're a messy person; some mess I can tolerate. I was just having my general bitch rant of the day, that's all.

Hey there... thanks for signing my guestbook. You're right, and I do feel that it's lame to work to write to an audience if your intent is to have a diary, which is what I've got; however, I was speaking in terms of writing for myself. I guess I like to compartmentalize things in my life to a degree, so for me, I wanted two places: one for my daily happenings, and one for my meatier thoughts. The funny thing that I have found is that it's really, really hard to divide between the two and place them in discrete catagories. In that respect, I will likely keep on blabbing to myself about whatever comes out of my mind and down through my fingers at that moment when I've got Notepad open. ;) I'm happy with it that way, and shall not try to change that any more! Anyway, thanks for the thoughts. I also enjoy reading your journal and have lost track of it lately, so your signing has reminded me. ~Sadie

I can't think of anything to say except i like reading about your life. and i was here and now i am gone i left my name to turn (your readers) on. those who know me know me well those who don't can go to hell. just a little thing i have picked up through the days, "peace to the man who wears green shoes" - lacy lopez
from chaos68 :
i am in d-land playing catch up. your feb 6th entry, heartbreak is great. what a tragic play that whole thing turned out to be eh'? oh, and by the way,happy expecting to you both!
from topazgirl :
Thanks for your support today, I really needed and appreciate it. I'll catch up with you again soon.
from danaelayne :
*huge hugs* I'll hope for you that grad school will be okay. What a blow...what a worry...I'm sorry.
from samantha :
I was away from Chicago for about half of my life, but I'm so happy to be back. of course, I love the Bears, but I hate that they compete against the Rams. it's not that I like the Rams, but I like my friends, and not petty bickering.
from samantha :
you write like I try to.
from erato :
nothing at all. one can cotrol such things, but thinking is for editors. i just let it go and take me everywhere.
from erato :
and so i agree. your poetry knows a steel edge of beauty and seeping reality. you bring it into focus and take it out of focus at your whim. my diary is different. i don't think. i let the story escape me. as it will. i seldom know where it will take me. i will start to write a story and end up on a confessional. i will start trying to relate the days events and i will find myself marooned somewhere four years ago...
from erato :
in the conventional sense, you are absolutely right, erato was the greek muse of erotic poetry. however, i like to think there are no limits to a muse, and choose the blakean approach, and regard the muse as the imagination incarnate. it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance, mousepoet.
from danaelayne :
Ohhh the new design is lovely! Whoo hooo for you and the new office. Now, your next project is to feel better :)
from thepooh :
i guessed as much. about your wife i mean. i believe in coincidences. which day is it? i am an aquarius as well.
from thepooh :
when is your wife's birthday? when is yours? don't mean to pry, just trying to figure you out some more.
from unravished :
Hey, I was talking about Vin Diesel. =) take care.
from ryarianne :
No splits, holes, or ragged edges Fitting that the split between my eyes grows wider when i read his poetry. i havenít had one in months, long enough to feel like i almost never did, almost never knew this: the burn in my palms, the leap of, oh so iím only two am i? the agreement, the he knows me too well, the grin, the why has it been so long, why did i screw this up, we had so much between these fits of sleeplessnes and covered crying. we were at our worst then, is that why we barely talk now? now that heís happy again, now that he has no toddlers tugging at his laces, no parrots biting through his shoes? is it as simple as that, this love of the tidy, the neatly shined the perfect pair?
from unlovable35 :
i cant say that ive yet agreed with any advice you have left for me... but you write well... and my frustration with the simplicity you offer as solution to my problems only furthers my apreciation of your character.. i'll befriend any man who brings me to bleed in a fight or offers a condacending word to my depression and confusion... i'll be going through your older entries... you have some talent.
from gentlehope :
i love this entry....and like the other person said its very deeepp...hah, making me invision an feel so many things...that it hurts to feel, but also makes u really grasp reality afterwards..
from jbvacity12 :
deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep...
from mechaieh :
funny - you're the first person i've seen to use the term "diary tree" - but it really is, isn't it? hopping from link-limb to page-fruit... (don't mind me, i'm the last person here at The Firm this Friday afternoon and feeling more than a little giddy-punchy as i wait for my ride to a corporate soiree, where perhaps i will indulge in punch-giddiness instead )
from zlicius :
awe hun... that sucks. ((((hug))))
from danaelayne :
Good luck on your test though I don't think you'll need it. You're there. You're able. :)
from angryquail :
Notes are pretty. Like your diary.

You're in and i am so pleased to see you there...:-)
from frenchpress :

from orangina21 :
the problem with shaving my head was, I did it in September. it was to commemorate a friend of mine's death from cancer- I wanted to sacrifice something of myself to better be able to grieve or understand. however, I forgot that in New England, September is already fucking cold. So what I really ended up doing was purchasing a lot of hats.
from ryarianne :
oh please tell me i was the one you were assuming was asleep... i know, im probably hoping in vain for those glorious april days of hours and hours of typeface, but still, there is the teensiest tinsiest hope.... nope... couldn't survive my cynicism for long. alas. oh well. hopefully for you you were talking about your wife. wouldnt that be, oh i dont know, all good and healthy and stuff....
from zlicius :
I used to do Compaq tech support. Actually, it isn't compaq who answers the calls. They outsource people to do it, and the company I worked for was called Sykes. I worked at both the Hays and Manhattan, KS sites. LOL. and most of my co workers were morons. They hire right offa the streets--if you can use a mouse, you are hired. Sooo, i feel for ya. Compaq tech support SUCKS. Have you ever been to www.compaqsucks.com? mwuahahaahahaaaaa!
from bnkswain :
awww poor Mikey :( we loves you anyway! especially since you don't like Britney Spears. Ugh. I talk if you want to! Just say hi on the im's!
from kathmccall :
How have i missed finding mousepoet for so many months? I'm here now, though. Thank you for that. :-)
from junkyardlady :
see, but ray no longer likes me... so yeah... i'm stuck, any ideas?
from zlicius :
are you in the IT dept? sounds like my job *insert eye rolls here*
from bnkswain :
Good morning, sunshine!!! 01OCT01 6:55AM
from bnkswain :
yah a cat-lover! very nice! you know you have friends here, right?? be happy! talk to me if you want to ... and check your email please
from chaos68 :
hmm.....would the cat be orange by any chance?

i know the feeling.

ciao

from bnkswain :
I am surprised you don't feel bitter towards your mom. And I am glad you don't. You are changing my perspective on poetry. It was somewhat skewed before ... I rarely rhyme because I found it takes too much unneeded thought. So thanks! And keep writing! Maybe you should publish them someday? Me too ... hah. Like that will ever happen. Too expensive.
from sparkle-hero :
wait... I don't "loke" your poems, I "like" them.
from sparkle-hero :
i loke your poems... yes, i too would enjoy standing naked in car wash...
from sheilasrs :
Thank you for signing my guestbook. You have have a wonderful site, and I had such a lovely time reading your entries. Keep up the beautiful work.
from bnkswain :
Tis a sad poem love. :( But I liked it very much.
from bnkswain :
funny, I never liked the president either ... though I admit he is making some good points lately ... sucks to be him, with this stuff going down ... too bad my hubby is military :(
from chaos68 :
really loved matter!
from bnkswain :
YAY! A real poet. I mean a real-live, honest to god, poet that I can't sit there and criticize! Can I keep you? ;) Anyhow, I loved it, absolutely -adored- it! SO you must return the favour someday and read my page, find the poems, and tell me what you think, ok?? ... a real damned poet ... yippee!
from dirtguy150 :
Thanks for the kind words. I must seem pretty bad off to warrant a poem for me. I appreciate it. I WILL get through this.
from ryarianne :
hey - care to give me any specific tips rather than just telling me i chickened out? ;) i like the dirt piece by the way - though there is (of course) some snipping i would do...
from ryarianne :
liked the end image of the waiting cat - almost made me cry...
from thesiren :
I am back on 9/15, and in awe of how articulate you are about why you cry. I cry, too, not knowing why. Feelings mix beyond mere ambivalence.
from thesiren :
I will be back for more when I am more awake, but wanted to say I...hmm, not "liked" -because it seems to be the wrong choice-, but appreciated the entry on 9/11.
from ryarianne :
wow... an entire fan club - somehow i'm not surprised... and quite a few good writers in your fan club too it seems. i'm trying you here because you didn't reply to my email. i miss you. are you ok? call me (on my cell)
