from f-i-n :
happy turkey day
from salazabr :
All that's left now is for Brian Krakow to finally come out. We all know he was really pining after Jordan.
from salazabr :
Oh c'mon. You can't be that shocked by this, all the signs were there.
from f-i-n :
I read that thing about atwood's scary sci-fi device. It sounds like something out of Oryx and Crake. I mean, what's the point?
from f-i-n :
amen.
from kaffeine :
Wait, you're more prolific than I am, so does that make me ultra-lazy? Or does it simply promote you to less-lazy?
from kaffeine :
OK, because you said your e-mail croaked... That was so nice. And I wanted to say that yeah, I say nasty things sometimes, and it's for some of the same reasons you explained, and it's also out of fear, because I got so used to feeling wrong and beat-up-on (by others, I mean, in the past), that when I want to defend myself now, I sometimes take it WAY over the top and end up doing damage. And like you, I also want to stop having grudges, and I want to focus on being happy myself, doing good things. I also wanted to thank you for some of your angry retorts because they made me realize some of my less wonderful qualities and want to do something about them. Oh, and, you're welcome: it's what I'd do for a friend.
from kaffeine :
Wait, so that "dinner party" ended up being just pizza? Dang, you got cheated!
from kaffeine :
It just worries me because you always make blunt statements about what you intend to steal (literally, "I'm gonna steal that!"). I mean, are you trying to justify snatching others' good ideas by saying that we all have unoriginal thoughts anyhow? You even said you were going to steal the concept of my Cuntscab comics once. I'm not going to argue that we all have other peoples' thoughts in our mind, but I won't back up the idea of recycling old ideas instead of innovating, because I think that's boring. Sure, every concept has been tried, but real talent lies in making it seem new, not just re-writing it. Borges be damned.
from kaffeine :
Saying "it's very complicated," and then "period, end of story," isn't an answer, though. There's a difference between hommage, citation and flat-out theft, and you have to differentiate. Theft *is* theft.
from kaffeine :
Theft is theft. Sorry.
from kaffeine :
so, sherwin's obviouslyu your friend, since you talk about him as you do... why did you call him mine?
from lydia :
The anonymous poster in your guestbook isn't so anonymous. Ignore the hydro part and scan the rest of the domain name. Sound familiar? It should.
from f-i-n :
good luck with the magazine!
from salazabr :
So what does it mean if my initials are BS? Is that a good or a bad thing I wonder...
from kaffeine :
ok, maybe this is a stupid question, but why didn't you just start a new diary for literary ventures and professional reference?
from kaffeine :
I try to make regular deposits to the karma bank, but my conscience won't let me withdraw. My conscience works too hard, methinks. Also, while it was obvious what you meant by it, I thought your phrase "write about it until it's dead and buried" was rather funny... That's my cartoonish imagination in overdrive again.
from monstre :
Yeah, but the only people who care about the poor folk dyin' is us bleedin' heart liberals. To the Bushies, isn't this just good riddance to all their problems? Poor folk, black folk, unwed mothers... The fancy bywater neighbourhoods on the "right side of the tracks" or levee in this case, are still bone dry...
from kaffeine :
y'know, sometimes i read the notes you leave me, and i wonder if i write coherently. you always seem to pick out the most obvious point of what i've written, as though i'd not even realized it myself...
from kaffeine :
Sasha is boring. Her only answer, to any question, anymore, is "polygamy". Fight with the boyfriend? Try polygamy; letting him fuck other girls will make him love you more. Don't like anal sex? Having multiple partners will make you more adventurous, and then you'll be begging your old man to shag you in the bum. Pubic lice? Well, you didn't go about your polygamy the right way, y'see. You gots to gang-bang the clean polygamists, the ones who became swingers because *I*, the Great Sasha, told them to. Boo-urns, Sasha. You used to be cool....
from monstre :
eek! I want to see the video but you forgot to include the http:// part of the link and it won't work!!! *pout*
from monstre :
I don't understand. If you're so over him, clear on the fact that you don't him, and looking for something different: why are you still reading about him, and writing about him? When I think of you I think of you as *you*, and when I think of Jes I think of him as *him* -- and yet you keep reminding me that you weren't always independent. I guess I'm just surprised to keep seeing his name.
from kaffeine :
It's almost hard to believe you're writing this. Your grandparents are like everyone else's; you are like everyone else: you are far from being the only person, in our age group or otherwise, to reject a conservative upbringing. I understand how it can be a bit saddening to have disappointed a senior member of your family, but really, there's no point in worrying about someone who doesn't know you terribly well. If you had really cared about him seeing it, you'd have never put it in a public place, or your name would be Y. Funk.

from anexperiment :
Mysteria, I am afraid we will just have to agree to disagree. I believe in the permanence of marriage, that you can be married to one person for life, and that during that relationship, your spouse is the only person with whom you should have sexual relations. I also believe that saving your virginity for that marriage is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your spouse. Of course, my sense of religion and morality is tied into this view, so if you disagree with my sense religion and morality, you are likely to disagree with my vision of virginity. That is your perogative as we all have free will. Best wishes, -Experiment
from anexperiment :
Mysteria, You asked a question about my virginity--whether or not I want to rid myself of it. Read my diary. You probably will not find a clear answer because I constantly struggle with the decision as to whether or not to give it up before marriage. Also, do you truly find my virginity weird? If it is wierd believing that unconditional, life-long love should be present before you have sex, then I am proud to be weird. Unfortunately, I have yet to find that love. And when I do, I bet I will be much happier than many virgins who have squandered themselves. Best wishes, -Experiment
from kaffeine :
I'm glad you've decided to just ignore his diary and remain honest. You're proving your own strength. One day everything will be different, and you'll be happy, no matter what the circumstances might be.
from anticrew :
clearly, this is none of my business but DUDE, you gotta take him off your buddy list or start a new diary or something. youre way to self aware to write any meaningful when you know that him and all his friends have access to your feelings and you can also be more objective, too.
from kaffeine :
argh! sorry I screwed up your guestbook with my ridiculous happy birthday message!!!
from vbitch :
Hey there...I'm going through the Montreal member list and inviting everyone to partake in a little get together at McKibbins on the 24th of September. Drop me a note/email if you're interested! Cheers.
from aletheastrea :
I got your reply about my vegetarianism entry, and I know about that all. My father doesn't let me grocery shop with him, and I just recently started driving. It was hard to find vegetarian food around the house when my dad is a meat, cheese, and bread shopper. I'm sorry if what I said in my reply to your entry about abortion sounded mean. I tried to reply to your entry as kindly as possible and without attacking you personally, but I guess in some cases, it's never easy. Again, I apologize. I think what you said is right, though, about people never commenting on everyday life. After three years of web journaling, I've learned to live with it, never getting any comments on my livejournal. I guess you should be glad that you actually wrote about something that people care about, I guess. On newspaper, I'm glad to get any comment, just so I know that someone out there is reading.<BR> <BR> Well, happy journaling.<BR> <BR>Aletheastrea
from dulcibella :
Just a quick note to say thanks for introducing me to the bookcrossing website.
from kaffeine :
I would have done the same thing. I decided to read Life of Pi, not knowing that it was the "book du jour," and found myself hiding while reading it in public, ashamed to be seen with that damn bright blue paperback and telltale tiger. And it wasn't even *that* good, to boot! Well, it was well-written and all, a good story, but it didn't make me believe in God (or Vishnu or Buddah or whatever), not in the sense I took the blurb on the back to mean, anyhow. If I'm going to be intimidated by a book, it would definitely be the borrowed copy of The Infinite Jest on my shelf. It looks like it should be titled The Infinite Footnote (over 100 pages of footnotes - wtf?). The thing is *huge* it had better be *good*.
from dulcibella :
Completely agree with you on the Hank front. I applaud you selling your cd's. I can't even bear to part with my Spice Girls cds. We have many tv programmes in the UK devoted to clearing out clutter & unwanted possessions. Apparently you should achieve greater mental clarity (or something) as well as raising some much needed dosh. Ta ra
from kaffeine :
I'll take the Jim Croce off your hands. And maybe the Janis Joplin, too.
from kaffeine :
aaaah, someone else who can understand why I hate Concordia students sometimes....
from kaffeine :
Alas! I have not a clear vision of what I'd like to do. Music journalist would be fantastic, but we all know I'd rather be the rock star. I mean, hey, if I end up being the next Lester Bangs, hooray! But otherwise it looks like I'll be holding down lousy jobs while cranking out Xeroxed copies of my bad poetry 'zines for years to come... oh, and your loans aren't as bad as those of some people I've known, trust me!
from kaffeine :
Indeed, Ms. Tyria, the student loan option is viable, I'm just terrified of debt. Especially since I have a little bit already, and no credit. But I'm too tired of *not* being in school to *not* do anything about it. On the tax note: don't ever waitress while you live here, they will hound you to your grave for taxes on tips you earn. Bastards! Good luck with your Yankee taxes, though....
from kaffeine :
Yeah, I've asked her many a time to do her freakin' job, but she blows me off with some kind of over-the-top valley girl attitude. I only *wish* I had the power to fire her.... but thanks for the support ;)

Interesting, this madness ours.
from minervajones :
hello...well in brief 10+ years ago he was picked up for 'under the influence', served 13 months at JamesTown fire camp, was release and placed on parole for 2 years, his release was to the same drug-infested area, he was shot and stabbed twice, fearing death from the streets, or from using drugs he decided to leave Cali, he asked his P.O. she replied with a flat 'no' for transfer of parole to Montana, he felt between a rock and a hard place, he left Cali, started over out in the middle of nowhere in Montana, never used drugs again, drinks very little to this day, he progressivly gained better and better paying jobs since moving to the Wisconsin area, and we started a small painting business about six months ago. After absconding from Cali he had nothing on his record..from that time to the time he was pulled over for doing a 'California roll thru a local stop sign'...It gets more convoluted with everything that happened after...im off to check out your diary.. regards, minerva

from z0tl :
congratulations on your upcoming 1226th entry. rock 0n! :z
from wonderchai :
No, you're right. But I was referring to AUTHORS. I've heard of so many male authors, very influential ones, over time who were abusers, and no women. I'm prepared for enlightenment! If you read the rest of my diary, I'm really not a sexist (well, no more than the next gal is prejudiced towards herself I suppose). :) I'm not sure if lack of women author-abusers happens to be a lack of female authors IN GENERAL for the time period I was referring to, or to my lack of information. And only men have ever used that excuse in reference to their own abuse, at least to me. Where I think, if you're a good writer, no matter what you're cramming into your system, it should show, and it won't make an idiot a genius. (somewhat reminiscent of eli cash from the royal tenenbaums?) Thank you for your note -- take care. :) -jenners-
from anticrew :
i worked at a bank every year and it paid for tuition. if you can take the bureaucratic bullshit and the boringness, then i'd suggest it. i mean, i hate the bank, but without it, i never could've afforded uni.

thanks for writing.. i learned french a bit in high school, but mainly when i moved there for study abroad and i went to the sorbonne and lived with a french lady and had a french boyfriend. you learn fast that way. move there. it rocks. :)

Fuck that, mysteria. I write for Gravenor not myself, I can even being accused of being totally selfless. Don't list on some retardo reciprocity principle, you are a Montrealer and above such hijinx. I also do not skate. I'm 24...I like my beautiful legs unscuffed.

i just found this diary and i love it--esp. the way you write free-flow, almost like you are having a conversation with the reader. please let me know what you think of my site-- rachel
from deus-atrox :
Save your clumsy arguments and cheap rationalizations for someone who puts stock in such things. The overall tone of your Analysis was sarcastic, insulting, and hypocritical. Why single me out? Am I the only Diarist in all of the Web who has the occasional vast boring patch? Of course not. You, yourself, suffer from the same affliction from time to time. Yet I've never called you out about it, despite my distaste for your philosophies. And let's drop the pretense here: you're issue with me lies solely in my philosophies, and my recent lack of anything of interest to say is only a convenient point of nitpicking because I made it obvious that I regret the intermission. As I look around at various other Analyzers, of Diaries you've listed as ones you enjoy, I don't see any of the rancor I found in my own. Yet I read several of the same Diaries, and have seen patches just as boring as my most recent. All this leads me to believe your issue isn't at all with what you claim, but lies with my beliefs and philosophies. Excelsior. Challenge me, debate me. I live for philosophical debate. But there's no point in simply trying to "score points" off me. All it does is instigate another sophomoric exchange, and lessens both of us. That said, you can continue to rattle off attacks, and be subsequently ignored, or you can approach your points of disagreement in a civil and uninsulting manner, and we can discuss it. Ball's in your court, Laura.
from deus-atrox :
There's a world of difference between criticism, which I welcome, and blind, childish insult, which is met with the same. If you'd like to disagree civilly, I'd be more than happy to have a civil, objective debate. They're a lot of fun, and I love having them. But coming up in my shit bellowing insults from the get-go is only going to invite likewise ignorant savagery. I like to address my detractors on their own level.

Re: 'I'm just his fuck buddy. I have no claim on him. I just feel so... possessive. I don't want to share.' Welcome to the ugly reality of being someone's fuck-friend. It is always so. This is experience talking, here. Oh, and you can't go to bed alone and still keep a shag buddy about. Decide which is more important, make your decision, and don't look back. Still love you, sistah! cf xoxoxo

You don't like it, don't read it. I haven't had any complaints from anyone who matters. In short, fuck off.
from dragonlady19 :
Oh yeah, I hear that! We drive better than they do anyway! Besides, men tend to forget that at any given time, one in every three women drivers is having her period, and quite possibly might own a gun...so to all you men out there, think twice before you flip a woman off next time!

me again ... ps., badger healing balm is also very good, and easy to find. http://www.badgerbalm.com.
from rubybluebird :
hey, thanks for the kind words about my site! gladja like it. also: i have a horrible dry skin thing going on too. to protect my skin i invented this salve that's made of beeswax, olive oil, almond oil, vitamin e oil, and a few essential oils melted down and mixed together. it's solid in the jar and melts when you rub it on warm hands. i hold them under warm water for a minute or so to soften up the skin, then towel dry and smear on my magical goop. it's all organic, it smells heavenly, and it works great! it's also easy to make yourself, or ask your healthfood store to recommend a natural handmade beeswax salve ... the waxier, the better. good luck!
from futilehorn :
Okay, I think I've been shamelessly plugged enough, thank you. Soon the pressure will become too great and my diary will go all, you know, limp.
from zenboy :
"soft girly flesh" - I think that proposition is considered a crime in all of the continental US. But in Alaska and Hawaii, who cares.
from innerlemming :
hon, I still love you AND your diary, but it's damn hard to read on that background. don't get me wrong, I love the stars...but...
from frank :
Oh my god!! The skipping kitty DOES make it all okay!!!! that made me smile, thanks.
from marn :
More moosie smooches. There may be tongue involved this time ... Mortimer has a thing for witty, literate women, eh. Kudos on both articles.

Okay, imagine something: You lower your standards and find a man. he's okay, treats you well, is fine, if unimaginative, in bed... And in the end is still a byproduct of your lowered goals. Now imagine: You keep your standards as high as they are, *eventually* find an utter prince who meets all your lofty criteria, treats you like the true goddess you are, and makes you shriek in bed. Quick! Which is better? You may not be the army, but really, now...
from marn :
Moose smooches, eh. Wet & wild. And they're all yours, baby, all yours. ;-) Thanks muchly supervixen.
from innerlemming :
on your personal ad: hey, *I* want you. smart, likes stars, and has a storm trooper helmet. what more do you want?
from cf188 :
Er, formerly buff hunk of socialist freak applying for the tongue-action and massage position...? ;-) Seriously buddy, if the list is true, you should be getting out and getting down a lot more...
from narcissa :
i think i followed methybeth here. if you're talking about douglas coupland - my all time fave is Life After God. i think i missed something with Polaroids or whatever. but life after god - that's a good book. i found you a while ago, then i lost you... now you're bookmarked, so i'll be back for sure. that's a well chosen U2 quote you've got there.
from kaffeine :
I can be a real dork sometimes. For example: I saw your diary once, many, many moons ago, and figured I'd come back to it. And people I think are good shit, like cf and Ben highly praise you and tell me you're good shit. But I'm a dork because I never made time to come back. But now I am. And you're good shit, my dear.
from virgincherry :
Your diary is so cool!! Fiona is the best & yes, you should be classified as something other than rock/pop.
from methybeth :

from methybeth :
Oy, i love Douglas Coupland! I've only read Microcosmos and Shampoo Planet, but I thought they were both great. So there, hah!

_Headcrash_... One of the finest books on geekdom I've ever seen. Dispells all the common cyberpunk myths by citing such mystic technomagick as "fuses", and so on. I wept. It made me weak. Burt, put on the rubber pants.
from hiddenid :
How is it possible for someone to come to my site through yours if there is not a link? :) Anyway...I've been reading you for a bit now. Just thought I'd let you know. :)
from monstre :
I second cf's idea. Montreal does a spirit good. :)
from cf188 :
'Christ. Somebody strap me down,' eh? I'll strap you down any day of the week, baby. Rowl! Honestly, though. Maybe coming from a Canadian perspective (where people matter more than guns and corporations, and prove me wrong if you can), I fully identify with the more 'Liberal' (as you guys say) ideas moving through American society. Up here, they're usually considered to be fairly centrist, but anyway... Stay to the left. It's definitely mnore fun. Love you dearly hon, cf

from camerastare :
okay. so this is easy. everyone freakin' out. Rape Me is about DATE RAPE (thus: my friend. thus: favorite inside source) and i don't think kurt cobain is either hard to understand vocally nor understand lyrically. "aqua seafoam shame" is a line of poetry. what's so hard to understand? it's just what it says. aqua seafoam shame. so all these long ass comments in response. hmm. i laugh. Polly was about rape as well. Kurt wrote about date rape quite a bit. (he really had a strong dislike for jocks. school days trauma and all.) perhaps he had a friend who was a victim. i personally like the lyrics. "lost eyesight i'm on your side/angel left wing right wing broken wing" or "blanket acned with cigarette burns" or "doll steak/test meat"('bout plastic surgery) the man was a poet. and it's usually overlooked in an attempt to classify the music or pick the lyrics apart. he says what he means. it's there in black and white. it's like tryin' to accuse Pound or Whitman or Williams or any of a number of poets of being obtuse. again. i laugh.
from methybeth :
"Lighten up", Shan? Not about that. Period. Sorry. Fuck, I'm retiring.
from malkavia :
In all honesty, I think the entire song was meant to shock and appeal to a certain group of younger people who love to piss off their parents. But some people will tell you its insensitive to glamourize rape (See also STP: Sex Type Thing. Another song I love but is about rape) I honestly think there was a big uproar over nothing with Flatlines diary. I've -been- through rape, and I can still look at it all with a fair amount of objectivity. My point is.. sometimes you just have to accept political incorrectness. It wasnt a stab at you or Methy. You're both great girls. sometimes everyone just needs to lighten up every now and again. =)
from mysteria :
It's taken quite some time for anybody to make that connection. And at any rate, I'm not even sure what the hell Cobain is singing in "Rape Me." The only lyrics I can make out are "Rape me, rape me my friend," and I get the feeling he's not referring to an actual male to female physical rape. There are metaphorical rapes, I suppose ("rape" of the mind being plagiarism, and whatnot), and satirical rapes, such as "The Rape of the Lock," but I was referring to physical rape. At any rate, I twisted the lyrics a bit and find them to be quite fitting for the kind of "look at meeeeeeee!" vibe the analyzer gives off. "Maybe she's asking for it," one could say. Perhaps I should find the lyrics (or alleged lyrics, anyway) to the song itself just to make sure I'm not inadvertantly portraying myself as a pro-rape asshole...
from malkavia :
Interesting post. Rape really isnt something to take lightly... Remember what an uproar people were in over that Nirvana song way back when? "Rape me.. rape me, my friend.. " *ponder* It looks alot like that Analyzer link you have to the left of your page..
from flatline :
I look at the actions and reactions of humanity, what you dub "evil" with some authority apparently granted by some hitherto unknown, unacknowledged power, and call them both natural and unsurprising. We're animals, and we behave like animals. Our superior powers of reason don't CHANGE our base animalism, but only complicate and shroud them. Nevertheless, a complicated event is no different than a simple event; the end result is identical. Man, however, has the unique ability to determine it's own placement in the food chain, though most people deny and ignore this fact until they forget it, and become fat, lazy sows waiting to be harvested. I haven't forgotten what I am, or what you are, and I consume what I find tasteful without hesitation. As to bringing the situation into a more subjective light, yes, I would certainly be angry were I to find a loved one brutally raped, because, in my own weakness, I lend myself to empathy and caring. But offended? Never. That is the way of the world, and my offense isn't worthy of a natural process so much greater than I. Nor would I be sympathetic. In all things, I posit strength. To be a victim is to embrace weakness, and weakness is the most contemptible flaw of all. As my final point, I suggest you re-examine the material of your comment without first bristling at the opening statement and thus holding aloft your preconceptions like a shield and a torch against the black-hearted sociopathy of one Preacher Bob, and look into the cause of the laugh-reaction. Do I laugh at the girl and her victimization? Of course not. There is nothing funny about weakness and being taken advantage of. I laugh because of the absurdity of the notion, that this previously thought harmless boy became a savage figure, one that is vilified throughout the civilized world because of his lack of "virtue". Absurdity lies at the base of the human laugh-reaction. Perhaps you'd do well to open your eyes, cast away your precious shield and torch of preconception, and perceive what actually exists. You'd look far less the fool that way.
from mysteria :
Just try and find me! Mwahaha! I dunno. I'm just tired of people reading my diary and never talking to me about it. It's like I don't really exist. My thoughts are these disembodied things that people I know are reading, and they don't even have the decency to tell me whether they suck or not. It's not for ME right now, it's for THEM, and I'm tired of that. And I'm just not sure what to write, anyway. I'm some kind of awful slave to a fucking computerized diary. Blah.

Camerastare, you loon, why don't you boldly leave a link? When it's dark, there are occasionally stars (or possibly just satellites) that shine for me. And the moon. And, of course, the flashing neon lights of the bodega on the corner. My favorite building? Hmm. I like my house, but if I had to pick something a bit more grand, I guess I'd go with The House of the Future in the Wisconsin Dells. I've never been in it, but it sure looks wacky. I'm not sure if it's associated with Tommy Bartlett's robot world, but that would be intriguing...
from camerastare :
i like this most recent essay. i agree with most if not all of what you have to say. i'm ashamed as i've not read the screwtape letters yet. though i've read several of his other books. i should really get that. hmm. (when it's dark out, does anything shine FOR YOU?) [what is your favorite building?]

"Cartman, dolphins are intelligent and friendly!" "Yeah, intelligent and friendly on rye bread with some mayonaise. If dolphins are so smart, why do they live in igloos?"
from greyarea :
"Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much... the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons."
from cf188 :
Didn't hate it. I thought it weas cool that it was a super-hero story that takes place *before* most super-hero stories do. I guess I was just expecting some thing as cool and different as The Sixth Sense or something. And as fror your paper on animals and humans, remember one thing: We don't understand them, and they don't understand us. We've come a long way from the times that animals and children were thought not to experience pain and suffering, but we have no idea what's going on in there. Everything you could possibly say, and everything that has been said comes from an essentially one-sided and potentially wrong foundatioin of knowledge. Be careful, young grasshopper, be careful...

It's far too noisy, both inside and outside my head, to try to remember anything right now. But I'll get back to you on that one.
from camerastare :
yes, about feminism. i agree. when you sit in the dark what do you see? (close your eyes and remember something.)
from methybeth :
*ears perk* X-mas cookies?!? Hell yes you can send me X-mas cookies! Hell, you can send me an ELF, ifyou want to! In fact, you owe me real mail anyway. I sent you a postcard. *sniffle*
from mysteria :
Dude, I disappear for a day and everyone's biting my ass to update. Like I'm not entitled to a vacation day? Sheesh! Okay, I'm glad you all love and appreciate me so much that you miss me when I'm asleep, but get a life, cf. I mean, you hated Unbreakable??
from cf188 :
Dammit, beetch! Why you no updating often?
from zenboy :
I have never felt so violated. You used the code that I stole FAIR AND SQUARE from another diary? For SHAME FOR SHAME!
from methybeth :
Yeah, it's different from afar, and yeah, it's easy. But who said loving someone is supposed to be easy? Loving someone comes from the knowledge that they try, that they are a good person, that they are worth something to you. It comes from understanding their motivations and wanting them to be happy and enjoying some aspect of them. Trust me, lady. Crazy glue.
from methybeth :
Alienate? bah! I'd like to see you try it. My love for Laura is strong like Crazy Glue. In that commercial where the guy puts a drop of stuff on the top of his hardhat and then puts the hardhat on and sticks it to a huge beam and then dangles, cause the drop of stuff was so strong? Bet you thought it was crazy glue. Not so. It was Methy's love for Laura. Yeah, Low, you're fucked up and neurotic and..what's the word..? OH YEAH. HUMAN. Find me someone who isn't for god's sake. You're a beautiful, intelligent, honest and thought-provoking person. Flesh and blood. So shut up and be proud. *smooch*
from mysteria :
Ooh, winter snugglin'? With a career male? In Canadia? Sexxxy. Let me pack my pj's and VW bug slippers and I'll be on my way...
from mysteria :
Dude, do you want me to cite your name in the corner of the photo or something? Geez. ATTENTION EVERYBODY: WILL IS THE ONE WHO TOOK THAT STORM TROOPER PHOTO. MAD PROPS TO WILL FOR HAVING A CREATIVE MIND. BAD LAURA FOR BEING A BORING, UNCREATIVE FUCK. Happy now?
from mireillie :
Read you off and on for awhile...love the design and the wordage. Now I'm going to sign off before I stroll into "Ass-Kissing" country. Give us a look over at Naked and On Fire, if ya got the time. Not as dirty as it sounds. Sadly. Heh.
from cf188 :
Overworked career male, 28 seeks overworked college student in NYC area to move North into God's Country for a little winter snugglin' ;-)
from tangledblue :
Dude! That's my helmet. It is outrageous how many people tell you how cool you are because that photo. That picture was my idea. How come they don't email me and tell me how cool *I* am? This is all blasphemy. This time next week the picture better be of you with your gym shorts on your head.
from mysteria :
I love me. Especially in that helmet. Whoo!
from hushed :
just leaving my mark
from innerlemming :
woohoo! I love this layout more than I did the night before...er...you know.
from mysteria :
What? Why not? Too many sexually explicit photos? ;)
from zenboy :
Sigh, and now I can't read your diary from work.
from fadein :
Any gal who mentions Djibouti wins my heart
from mysteria :
You did? Who was I pissed off at that time, cf? The kneecaps aren't really the important thing; it's the fucking-up part that counts. Could you bring in a militia to destroy G.W. if he's elected?
from cf188 :
Justanote here. Remember, please, that I offered to take a Posse south can kick some serious arse for you once upon a time. no kneecaps involved, which I take it was my mistake. The way to Mysteria's heart is through a man's knees... ...twisted.
from mysteria :
Thanks, Zen. You're the second person who's offered to break somebody's kneecaps for me. It's always so touching. [wipes a tear]
from zenboy :
If he doesn't though, give me a call and I'll kneecap him.
from zenboy :
That was one of the most beautiful things I've ever read, Mysteria. I just wanted you to know that. Here's to hoping he fucking listens.
from innerlemming :
you are my personal cult hero.
from mysteria :
How can the Cranberries scare anyone? They rock.
from fret :
the cranberries scare me. *huddle in the corner*
from blabbityblah :
I say go for both colors. Red with pink stripes. If you get the right combination of colors, it'd look fucking awesome.
from innerlemming :
woohoo! Nader all the way! this is my new favorite quote, dearie: "So I'm voting for Nader, because at least I'm voting for someone who doesn't have a snowflake's chance in hell of fucking up the nation. Some people say that's just taking a vote from Gore, and I say fine. Fuck Gore in the ass for all I care. He and Bush deserve each other." you're so wonderf'lly, wonderf'lly, wonderf'lly, wonderf'lly pretty. ;]
from mysteria :
Cf, you geek, ha'en't you ne'er been to the homepage? I am all over it, especially on the pixie page. But I shall put up a doctored photo of moi, courtesy of Mr. Ben. ;)
from cf188 :
I don't really know which colour would look best, as I've only ever seen you in a storm trooper helmet, but my natural aversion to all things pink would make me vote for the red. And where the fahk did all the comments go?
from mysteria :
And... what the hell happened to all my previous comments?
from mysteria :
My sis votes for fire-engine red. What say you?
