from strawberrri :
the pram bit is terrifying! people getting excited about a baby about to go over a cliff...very dark indeed. i love it when helga tells bruno's parents 'your son is in my handbag,' and their facial responses to this. it's also funny how the kid who played luke appeared in hook and then disappeared into obscurity forever more. and i have no idea what happened to the boy who played bruno - maybe he's still spending the royalties of the film on cream cakes and sandwiches with butter, not margarine :)
from strawberrri :
haha. anjelica huston is also pretty hot in that film. what i noticed for the first time is that in the room where they have that big meeting and are told 'you may remove your vigs!' that many of the witches are actually *dudes*...how can i have never noticed that before? i also laughed like a loon at the bit where bruno jenkins' father has a go at rowan atkinson when he wants cress soup and ends his admonishing speech with 'now there's a laddy!'
from skinnylizzie :
I have still not caught onto the whole Livejournal thing, really need to at least make an account there, but I shall say a big fat happy birthday here instead for now! Enjoy Thorpe Park tomorrow, don't eat too much tonight in preparation for the rides...
from skinnylizzie :
You're not just some boring blog at all, and thank you so much for your kind note. I can only apologise for all of the moroseness, I should stay away from this place when I'm feeling less than perky!
from xxholding-on :
hi i saw you were online and i really wanted the vote from diaryland towards a contest i joined. It's a coach marketing contest and i need as many votes as i can get, please help! http://www.brickfish.com/Pages/PhotosAlbums/PhotoView.aspx?picid=975395_34070543&pid=2767347&scid=452
from skinnylizzie :
Right, well, I'm useless at getting my head around Livejournal (I'm currently switching over to Blogger and I still don't really understand that either) so I thought I would leave a comment here just in case you stumbled across it. I don't mean this to sound stalkerish and weird (which means it will now, GREAT), but it's funny, you were one of the first people I thought of when I heard about Michael Jackson, because you were one of the only people I'd heard of who'd actually managed to get tickets. My mum actually went into mourning for two days, putting Billie Jean on repeat (thank God it's my favourite MJ song), so I hope you feel a bit better about it soon...this all sounds very trite, but I hope you know what I'm trying to say very inarticulately!
from skinnylizzie :
I didn't either...to be honest, Lulu the doll kind of freaks me out a little bit. She's got a bell in her and I just get all confused about whether it's a human toy or a dog toy...I don't like the way it looks at you either with its beady eyes. Possibly revealing a little bit too much about how dolls freak me out, but it's out in the open now. They are creepy though...
from echoman :
That's the thing, I'm not necessarily ready or even interested in the whole marriage/suburbs/house/2.5 kids thing. I like my single/interesting life. There are times where I miss the comfort of being in a solid relationship, but there are many times where that's the absolute last thing I want right now. You're right, I'm almost 30 and I feel like I'm only getting started. The whole "me-as-Joey" thing is more about feeling completely out of place and like the rest of my social/support network has "ditched" me. Or something. Like I said, it's kinda a minor thing, but it was definitely on my mind last week and over the weekend. P.S. You locked your diary up, I can't get in!
from caker :
This is not "Caker," but rather his mother and sister who thoroughly enjoyed reading your diary before you locked up. Upon hearing that MJ postponed some of his London dates, we are DYING to know if it affected your tickets. (We kept up with the concert saga.) May we please have your password?

from skinnylizzie :
I'm not sure, James is brilliant (have to watch last night's on catch-up seeing as I only caught the first fifteen minutes, but him 'giving birth' in the pool and shouting 'DON'T TOUCH ME' cracked me up) but then I was rooting for Kate as well, at least until the week when she trampled all over Philip's heart like a heartless bitch! As long as Debra Witchy McWitch and Lorraine McInstinct don't win, then it's fine by me.
from stepfordtart :
I will confess to also creating "swimming based scenarios" to help pass the time. I am crap at swimming so they're usually to do with getting to the side without drowning, to be honest. Oh, and the Celine Dion thing? I'd say you'd probably just temporarily taken leave of your senses. Nothing to worry too much about.....unless you have it on repeat. s x
from lanienaked :
ummmmm........... dont be mad but i forgot the password, can u gimmie again per chance? i still remember the username if that's any consolation lol.
from stepfordtart :
I thought Coraline looked a bit crap from the trailer but I'd kind of resigned myself to having to take the kids to see it next week (half term). You didnt use the words 'turgid' or 'pointless' in your review tho, so I guess it must've been ok. Ive been wrong before about films (qv Stardust & Mamma Mia)and I hear that the new cinema in Chigley has BEANBAGS for your viewing pleasure!! s x

from stepfordtart :
Dude! WTF are you up to now with the template and the bank page and the the the...stuff?! You change your user name again and Im gonna come over there and give you a jolly good spanking. : ) s x
from seattle-rain :
As an avid reader, I appreciate the update. Have a great Sunday!
from seattle-rain :
Rawr! The house search stuff is so lame! Enjoy Murder She Wrote a little for me since I'm sick with no TV!:)
from achmardi :
I'd like the password please!
from vicunja :
So... feel better soon and... ehem... I hate to ask, but... ehem... may I have the secret code to your private place?
from seattle-rain :
Get to feeling better soon.
from lanienaked :
hope u feel better soon, also i would like a password if you decide to lock.
from misfitstray :
I know exactly how painful this kind of illness is. I really don't envy you having it. Get well soon!
from stepfordtart :
I have a co-worker who had exactly the same affliction. His "calling in sick" message was oneof the funniest Ive ever heard: "Hi! This is *retch* Gordon *gag*. I cant *gag* come *gag* in today *retch*." Joy. Sheer joy. Feel better soon, dude. s x
from seattle-rain :
Get well soon! And when you find the key to designing universally browser friendly layouts let me know!:)
from stepfordtart :
Gargling with soluble aspirin is pretty good too. The last really bad throat infection I had was when I got married and that pretty much got me though the pain/inflammation side of it. Hope you feel better soon. Needless to say, I would really like the pw if you decide to lock up.....unless, of course, you're locking up to keep me out! s x
from skinnylizzie :
I quite liked Wolverine (and that's as far as my reviewing talents go, to be honest). Your tonsils of doom don't sound like much fun at all so I hope you start to feel better soon. And on an entirely unrelated note, can I add two more words and phrases to our list of things that should be banned, never to be heard again? 1, Swine flu, and 2, pandemic. I can't switch on the TV anymore without feeling my irrational rage take over...
from misfitstray :
I would like to get the PW please if you decide to pw-protect your diary. drop me a note at bcrk19 AT yahoo DOT de if possible.
from stepfordtart :
Good. Facebook is poop. I did it for about ten days and once Id filled in my quintillionth survey on "what are you wearing right now, what pets do you have, what was the last thing you ate" I'd lost the will to live. There is life after Facebook. Its called Life. s x
from stepfordtart :
Banks are cunts. s x
from stepfordtart :
Meh. (I dont have anything more constructive than that to say) Why did she come? Just to rub your nose in it? Yeh, Liverpool's too far to go for a shag. Maybe we should just let smashthegas know where she lives? That would wipe the smile off her face. s x
from stepfordtart :
I fel slightly sad that i understood not one jot of your first paragraph....but almost all of your second. Meh. s x
from skinnylizzie :
London prices scare me, they really do. I am never going to be rich enough or mature enough to own my own place; I'm going to have to find a big cardboard box and live in that instead. If I had 40,000 sitting in a savings account I honestly think I would lose my head and start buying diamond encrusted lunchboxes and other such naff things...
from skinnylizzie :
SHE, she is clearly an animal full of feminine wiles and graces! And also far more attractive than Mr Ed, despite how excellently excellent he was...
from stepfordtart :
At least you'll be able to budget properly with a fixed rate. Fingers crossed it all goes well for you. s x
from stepfordtart :
what about "....and have a fucking wash!" ? s x
from lanienaked :
just lie and say you can't make the sept one for some reason. no matter what you say, you shouldn't feel guilty. after all YOU got the tickets, not her. she should feel happy that she gets to go at all.
from stepfordtart :
Take her to one side and say "I feel terrible about this and Im ever so sorry but my date cant make that concert. We're going to have to go on blahblahblah and you can have the ones for blah blah blah." There! Job done. Its not like its next week or anything - she has plenty of time to change her plans. They're your tickets, you could tell her to push off if she doesnt like it. You can do it nicely and be apologetic but, really, you hold all the cards here. s x
from stepfordtart :
Wha?! MJ's covering old Pink Floyd tunes now, is he? I think it would be a good idea for your da to buy property - prices are coming down by the day around here and you could pick up a nice bargain. You pay the mortgage for as long as you need it - maybe you could come to some arrangement about what would happen if you want to move/he wants to sell? Got to be worth some serious thought. s x
from stepfordtart :
I know I was taking the piss before but Im proper glad you got the tickets if it means so much to you. Look! Im doing a little skippy glee dance in your honour (Oooch, me back!) s x
from lanienaked :
wow grats on those tickets. so what are u gonna wear billy? jeans?
from stepfordtart :
No worries! They really are a piece of piss to make - even my daughter (the one who's 9) can make them all by herself. And, unlike cakes, if you cock em up a bit (mix to dry, mix too wet, dollops too big etc etc)biscuits are still pretty much ALWAYS edible! Enjoy. s x
from stepfordtart :
I like the new template - the other one had those two naked people dancing in a conservatory. I think. Yay on your Jacko tickets - not my kind of gig but if its making you do the happyhappyjoyjoy dance then Yay on it anyways. s x
from stepfordtart :
You get up at 4?! Thats not a getting up time, thats a coming in time! What do you do for goodness sake? Are you a milkman? s x
from seattle-rain :
I feel ya. People on the train who yack irritate the crap out of me.
from stepfordtart :
Yeh, cos, like you have a wife and a couple of kids and....oh, hang on......! Send us a postcard, wontcha! s x
from seattle-rain :
Rum and coke love here. Yummy. I think Bud is pretty gnarly. Here in WA we have R0gue Brewery and their beer is top notch.
from skinnylizzie :
I wish I earned a bloody grand a month! Not that I think I would for a minute survive longer than two and a half days in the kind of job I imagine you do, I would actually be eaten alive.
from mrbradley :
For simple layouts like most of D-land, there's absolutely no reason to think tables are inappropriate. They're quicker and easier to code and serve the same function. That said, Comic Sans is evil.
from steffybabie :
randomly found your diary and i checked out spotify but it isn't available in the U.S. yet? are you in another country? thanks! :)
from skinnylizzie :
Thank God I'm not the only one! Although if hitting my emotional maturity upper limit at sixteen means I don't go out and decide to start repopulating the world with children and getting married at some ridiculously young age, then it is absolutely definitely a good thing.
from skinnylizzie :
Valentine's Day is an evil invention made even worse by stupid retailers attempting to plug the gap between Christmas and Easter, and I don't think not wanting to take somebody out on the Day of Evilness is stupid at all. If I see one more smug couple at work the rage may take over.
from achmardi :
Dorothy was always the raddest of the Golden Girls, anyway.
from seattle-rain :
That doesn't sound harsh to me. Valentine's Day is stupid.
from lanienaked :
no one should have to settle. u both should do urself a favor and forget about each other if that's how the situation really is
from echoman :
Yeah, I saw a bit on CNN today that said "winter weather could cost London $5 billion". I was utterly confused -- surely it's snowed in the big smoke before? It seems like this round of weather is causing a particularly large amount of mayhem.
from lanienaked :
wow... that is absolutely pathetically sad that that's what it takes to go to work.
from stepfordtart :
I agree, its moronic. But then why, after the first couple of setbacks, did you not just say Fuckit and go home? Are you a brain surgeon, or something else vital to national security? I went in cos Im only 8 miles from home to office but I phoned Slaveboy and told him not to bother - he lives in the countryside and it just all seemed a bit pointless. Its all slush here now. More on Friday, so Im told. s x
from stepfordtart :
It was SUCH fun driving in to work. Mmmm, Mr Mazda sure wasnt thinking of icy, snowy country lanes when he invented the RX8. s x
from dream-catcha :
thanks for the note. yeah the snow was pretty but now i'm getting tired of it. the walk to school on ice was deadly. glad to be home and safe now! but they say we might see some more!why can't it come in a couple of weeks time when it's half term? :/
from stepfordtart :
Oh give over! Thats no excuse for not updating, you just have to write two pages of boring drivel, like the rest of us do! We WANT to know what you had for lunch, godammit! s x
from stepfordtart :
Nightie night! s x
from lanienaked :
i lost my ipod once, and it sucked. i bought a replacement online, but it was nowhere near as good as my old one that i gave up on ipods in general. i don't feel that i am missing out on anything. you get used to not having an ipod.
from lanienaked :
is where you work really called "the fun factory" and what kind of products does it offer?
from lanienaked :
here's a funny song to sing while waiting for the tube. http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=FYVJSOFZxDE
from lanienaked :
i heard that the london underground is REALLY terrible.
from evilyoyo :
regarding your bonsai tree... i just recently threw away mine (which looked exactly like yours)... it froze to death when i left my apartment for couple weeks. :(
from bebelua :
p.s. yeah, i'm using the camera built in to my macbook pro. i'm not sure why they do that, but whatever. i'm too lazy to fix each file, so you guys just get to see me in reverse. :)
from bebelua :
i dunno. to a lot of girls, flirting after a few drinks IS concrent. i mean, a few drinks will make me loosen up, sure. but not to the point where i'd get slutty with someone i found repulsive. for the most part, i figure people only drunk-flirt with folks they actually fancy. unless of course, you're talking falling-on-your-face-drunk. in which case, i've been known to flirt with a potted fern.
from annanotbob :
OK, when did it become the girl's responsibility to move things on? Do you know for sure that she isn't writing a blog somewhere else, saying exactly the same things about you?
from fifidellabon :
Well, the Budweiser was no loss, if it is the American kind. Q: Why is Budweiser like making love in a canoe? A: Because it's fucking close to water! /Fifi
from annanotbob :
Ha! I used to make kids write letters to their future selves when I was a teacher. Sara tells me the starlings don't bump into each other because they're all flying towards the centre of the group, but that doesn't help me understand it any better x
from evilyoyo :
thanks for letting me know! i added your new diary. hope 2009 is a better year for you :)
from annanotbob :
Gasp! Poured alcohol down the drain? Isn't alcohol a preservative? Does a sell-by-date even mean anything with booze? Though it's a bit late to mention it if it's already gone...
from misfitstray :
hey, thank you, but my diary isn't better than yours at all! I like yours a lot, that's why you are in my favorites ;)
from annanotbob :
Thanks for the note. I get free comments from haloscan.
