Oh, yes, the other details -- it was on a Macnitosh, Dec 08, 12:33:14 PM.
from somnambulist :
I second that -- locked? :( Of course, I recently saw a stats-tracking hit on my journal for "mzauberman sex" -- someone was obviously good at hiding their tracks. It said the IP address was in IANA (69.111.115.#), on Pacific time; and they used the CACHE at Google, not my actual site, but my Sitemeter tracker catches either. I hope you'll be open to the public (or at least trusted members) but it looks like someone's net-stalking you, dude. Thought you deserved a heads up. Email me if you need anything more (but soon, that entry is going to drop off my top 100 in a day or two).
from girlsdontcry :
Locked?!
from aglaia :
Hey! You helped design my Aglaia diarland way back and it looks great--except i'm having a couple of problems which I think should be fairly easy to fix if you have the knowledge. my "older" page is not showing up and I don't know what to change to make it work. PLEASE send me a line--I would really appreciate it!! Also...love the idea about stepping back and evaluating who you are and how you have changed every 100 entries--it would be interesting for all d-landers to do something like that to get a perspective of how we grow and move in different directions. It doesn't necessarily have to be a "bad" thing how you've changed. Sometimes, going somewhere and realizing you're not happy with how things are only give you the perspective to put you on a different track and to truly appreciate all that life throws at you. Yeah, yeah...easier said than done. Anyway, hope to hear from you soon! Aglaia@diaryland.com
from somnambulist :
I have added the proper link. Get hoppin'! ;)
from girlsdontcry :
I changed my entry before I realised you'd left a comment and now it looks as if you find sleet a particularly bleak subject, so sorry about that. How do you carry on, though, in the face of pitiless indifference?
from banefulvenus :
GREEAAAT subliminal message!! (Banner)
from dark-doll :
hahahahaha your banner is so cool!! <3
from elliorange :
♥ Good luck. :)
from elle-78 :
Just looking at profiles of those who also enjoy Jackson Browne...and noticed that we both think he is possibly the best lyracist that has ever lived!
from maeve-arie :
:(
from super-suzan :
Best of luck to you, whatever you end up doing.
from girlsdontcry :
It's good to know when to stop though. Farewell.
from foxgallagher :
Awww....what am I gonna do without your diary to read now? Who else will write about their grandfather getting a vibrator as a neck massage?
from ozwald :
Hey Marty. Sorry to hear you decided to quit. Take care! oz
from phyntosia :
Aww what? I saw you'd updated... and was all excited cos hey, obviously you were back from hiatus... but what? What made you decide to quit d*land altogether? Me sad :(
from somnambulist :
You'll be missed. I was hoping that someone else was finally joining me in the good fight! :) But I can see why you'd want to walk away from it... if I wasn't so heavily invested... I would too. Keep in touch on AIM if you can, ok?
from phyntosia :
:( Will miss reading your thoughts... don't be one of those people that say they'll be back and then leave forever! Hope things go well for you....
from ladiebug :
me too, its a scary place to be.
from girlsdontcry :
I left you a comment on your unicycle entry, but I don't see it anywhere... but I don't know if that's by accident or design.
from aglaia :
Hey, I think it's amazing you're having a 'life flash' where you re-evaluate who you are what you believe in and where you want to go. It must be terribly scary, uncomfortable and troubling but at the same time....you are free to become someone that YOU believe it. You are ready to *grow*! If at all possible, enjoy it. BTW, how old are you?
from girlsdontcry :
I read your entry about changing your life a couple of times and it just seems like the kind of thing that a reader ought respond to, except I can't think of anything to say that isn't an awful cliche, or terribly bad advice. So, I'll just say good luck.
from girlsdontcry :
I guess that, working in some kind of science-related job, you probably know a lot more about this than I do!
from girlsdontcry :
Hi Marty, didn't know whether to answer you in my own notes or in yours. So here we go... Firstly, you might be interested to read a bit about the documentary I mentioned - http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/horizon/2002/homeopathy.shtml, that's the one that several people here have seen and always use in their arguments against homeopathy (it doesn't question the fact that herbal remedies can work). But my real annoyance is that why some people feel that everything must fit in with science before it can possibly be true. I would think that testing homeopathy the same way as drug companies test their products is probably close to being pointless because homeopathy treats every body as being different, and looks beyond just the sympton that the patient presents - wouldn't that make a comprehensive, repeated double blind study a little difficult? I guess that they same goes for animal/baby patients too. I don't discount the power of placebo, but I think that they are talking nonsense when they just dismiss it out of hand (which clearly you're not doing, by the way). Cheers!
from lisse :
thanks for the encouragement :)

Your music is kickass. That's pretty much it. Keep playing music.
from madam-rose :
*bows to your greatness* i agree about those book though i did enjoy them and love reading. But what I would rant about right now is we do the same thing over and over and over. I have written a research paper every year since 4th grade you would think by my senior year the teacher would think we knew what we are doing lol but nope she spends a week lecturing us and putting us to sleep tellin us the proper way to hightlight a paper. lol stupid teachers lol and the sad part we only read 2 novels a year. Its like reading is no longer important instead we spend 8 weeks writing a paper that is for 3rd graders lol well ok your rant reminded me of my rant i was going to do lol anyway great sight doll.
from pura-vida :
I somewhat agree with your stance regarding Cowboy Bebop, but you should check out the episode involving mushrooms. Also, you left out the best character: The corgi.
from ozwald :
Hey kid! Happy New Year!
from meowstacie6 :
You're diary is great. I was just looking on a search for "Twitterpated" and your journal came up. I really like your diary. Especially your "Twitterpated" entry.Keep up the great entries. You are invited to read mine if you would like.
from foxgallagher :
Yeah - I'm doing a bit o' publicizing. You want to be listed somewheres? You should go to my listing site, I Am The Walrus. http://walrusguide.diaryland.com. Yeap. Definetly.
from ghostlight :
Thanks for the positive feedback on the layout! I liked the old one but was ready for a change.
from monstrance :
I first off want to say I come in peace..lol...I didn't come her to disrespect. I just want to leave a comment about the Freddie Prinze Jr. entry. I just want to say as unmasculine as he may come across to you, I am sure he could hold his own in a fight. Afterall he is a blackbelt in Taekwondo (as is Sarah Michelle Gellar), and he has trained longer than his wife Sarah. By the way I do agree that she is very attractive. Hopefully we can see more of her on Angel. Anyway, as a fellow martial artist and blackbelt I know how good one gets when they receive their blackbelt. I am sure Freddy is not a wimp. Besides, he is latino. All latinos know how to fight.
from anodemud :
Hmmm, I must have mis-read the offer! Oh well, undying love is better than nothing. Although the pirates pun deserves a THWAP with this baguette of mine.... :THWAP:! :D

Hey, at least you won't be on jury duty for a full year like these poor suckers have been. http://www.cnn.com/2003/LAW/09/19/oakland.police.scandal.ap/
from scrapedgrace :
Your banner was amusing; however, your diary is even better. That is all.
from aglaia :
Hey MAzuberman....I no longer have a gold membership with D-land so I'm not sure how to get my pix shown on my site. Whenever you get the time I would appreciate your wonderful HTML services. :) Please email me at Aglaia@diaryland.com to help! -Ag
from gumphood :
That was a great I mean great banner (the Virginia one) and I didn't understand your entry really. Sorry.
from tubaboy :
That subliminal banner was pure genius... I wish I had thought of it!
from un-bad :
Dude you kidding me? End of the world... I scoff yes SCOFF at you. Why? you may ask? Because I work at a Starbucks. A Starbucks with a drive through. And today a drive through person tried to cram their bright yellow Hum Vee into the stardard size drive through. Only to insist upon exchange of goods that I "needed to make that damn thing bigger so I can get through." Now that's the end of the world. A car that is too goddamn huge to fit in a Starbuck's drive through ha ha kill me.
from brucegirl :
I just want to congratulate you on a kick ares banner! *high-five*
from clearance :
you're banner is great shit.
from hope-soul :
Hey , just letting you know that I visited ya diary because I clicked on the wonderful banner that you have. Anyway I love ya layout
from dombilly :
I love your banner. its too good. lol
from th3dhorseman :
You know Marty, I'd be inclined to agree with you totally under normal circumstances, but considering that now is a time that if I'm not making money and contributing to the bills and rent of the house, Errol's going to go live with her parents, so being told that what I'm doing is the last thing I need to hear, especially how easily influenced I am towards loathe at work. Office Space is responsible for me quitting 3 jobs. That says it all. Thanks though. Our dollar sucks now, but if Bush gets re-elected, our money will be worth twice yours.
from bansheerose :
hey funny stuff. ~Bek
from faith5by5in :
I LOVE THAT BANNER! Subliminal Messages...wonderful things.
from dont-stop :
Funny banner. I suddenly have the strangest compulsion to chop off my neighbor's head and stick it in the freezer. Upside down.
from phyntosia :
must.. click.. banner....... strange.. subconscious.. compulsion...... must click.. must click.. *clicks on banner, doing a fairly good hypnotised-zombie impression*
from un-bad :
Dude the other day I nearly flipped my car trying to avoid smashing a squirrel. Of course a stiff breeze could flip over a Cavalier but details!
from chubbychic :
God, what is with all the hate messages??? I've never really had any before, but in the past 3 weeks I've had a dozen of them? The only thing I can attriubute it to is the fact that this is the first summer that my diary has been up, and the fact that school is out for the summer leaves an influx of bored mindless twits looking for something to do.
from lameassgirl :
haha i saw ur banner w. the no subliminal messages and it made me laugh- thanks for that
from loriebug :
hi there! I just stumbled across your diary and have been reading a few pages - you've got some funny shit going on here. good times.
from dandelionkat :
Awww- poor Marty!
from dcalien :
Marty, I voted for your girlfriends name to be Tiger Chick. I know Ms Adams a little, and I think that fits her well. Of course being your girlfriend and not mine, I would not call her hottie or hot or cuddle anything. Protocol and all you know. Before you two hooked up, I thought she was pretty hot though. Only don't tell her I said that OK?
from a-splinter :
E.H.A. Eha. Yee-haw. Call her yee-haw. He ha. Ahem. I'm done. :o)
from ehadams :
I cant believe you made a poll about this. And "cuddle-bear?" Geez. In revenge I have ordered the gods to crash your tagboard. Ha! Oh, and E-Spot sounds sorta lame (sounds like an electronics store, hehe) but maybe dude didnt listen when you mentioned that my initials were E.H.A.
from somnambulist :
I'm going to circumvent the poll and give away a nickname I like using. Might not work for your girl. But if her name were, say, Christine, I always liked "C-Spot" for that (or any other C name). Works with some, though not all, initials (who wants to be, say, Q-Spot? Might as well be Q-Bert... though, what are the odds her name starts with Q...). Bonus: I actually tried this one out on a real-life Christine, and she kinda liked it.
from inkdragon :
If all else fails, get the hammer!
from unclebob :
When someone "delists" me from my Favorites list it drives me nuts. I painstakingly compare my written list with the list on Diaryland until I find the person that jumped ship and then I email them every hour on the hour with the simple message "Why?" until I get a response. Then I put the voodoo whammy curse on them, eat some chips and hit the sack. Thanks for wondering.
from girlsdontcry :
Someone I know (the guy who dumped me, actually, so I'm not sure how much credence we should be giving to his insights, but nevertheless) complained to me more than once about having been 18 in 1983, because, in his opinion, the music that defined his generation pretty much sucked. And I had to agree with him, as he went off into yet another reminiscence about Judas Priest. So, you know, it wasn't all great in 1983.
from scarydoll :
wherehouse is also going out of business near my college. for a minute, i thought that was weird but thinking about how lame they are, i guess that they are probably ALL going out of business.

from outoftime :
Hello there, I really enjoyed reading your entries on your trip to Holland, sorry to read you had a pretty crap time though :( Better luck next time?
from dandelionkat :
You should check out what I wrote today. For some reason I thought of you after I wrote it. Not becuase you would do it. It just seems like something you'd think of.-kat
from altaira14 :
You should be able to write about whatever the hell you what to write about. It's called living in America. If those people are pissed because you said something offensive to them, too bad. They just have to deal, not to mention find something else to do with their lives.

Thank you for the awesome teeshirt, my uncle LOVES it! kisses, cassie
from brimac :
but slerlosly, would it really be so bad to have a button that activates a portal to hell? i mean, i live in Riverside, CA, which by the way IS the Hellmouth, and that sux majorly. But to have a simple button that will open and therefore logically close, a gateway to hell, that would be nifty-keen. "But there are so many nice people in Hell." -Machiavelli

You know what? I don't think I will ever get on a scale for a doctor again either! You are right, what the heck does that have to do with what you are there for! Kudos! Sandy
from ehadams :
Hey sweetie. I am working on getting your tagboard up again, but the other gods seem to be mad at you for something. Sorry about that. Whats this Loser guy saying about getting cookies eh? If I'm getting cookies they had better be some peanut butter ones! By the way, you are by no means fat Marty. Just nice and cuddly. (Dont forget, someday you too will be a doctor. Then you can tell them to shove it.) ~E
from loser8720 :
O.o *faked spainish* hey muchacho, what's up with the guestbook thingy on your site essa, i'm glad your happy, just make sure she gets her cookies first and everything'll be alright o.O
from dcalien :
Marty I just talked to your friend eh adams in im. That is just so cool that you two went out. She gave me a pic for my fotolog, it is for dland folks that in some way touch my life. Might I have one of you as well? That would be nice to have both of you in there. You guys both sound quite excited. I cannot stop smiling about this.
from cant-make-me :
hey! the shirts are back? what happened to the "supposed patent"? well, i'm glad. anyway, so you met a nice girl over diaryland? she sounds lovely... i checked out her diary too. where could i find a picture of her? (i should probably ask her but i'm lazy...make that curious and lazy). bye for now :o)
from luckylucky :
seriously u r hilarious!! :) i'm gonna be on here, like everyday now trying to read all 300+ of your entries. i dont see why you can't get a girl! you have my sympathy.
from iamemilie :
I'm actually getting a 6.2% click-through rate on that banner, but it will proably go down, since it's new. Thanks for clicking it, by the way :)
from darksa :
I tried to leave this in your guestbook, but you've set a facist limit on word counts. Here you go, Mussolini: Marty, I was just joking about having Paul kill you re: the t-shirt thing. But then I read the Michael Moore entry of yours. While I am usually all for people speaking their minds, your view is just so one sided, it makes me angry. Not only are GM employees hard working people who have GRADUATED HIGHSCHOOL, (and, in my father's case, used GM sponsered curriculums to earn himself TWO college degrees,) use their full time job to PROVIDE FOR THEIR FAMILIES, but they are also victims to the reckless capitolism that Roger Smith plagued upon the people of Flint, and the state of Michigan. I didn't worry about where our next meal was coming from because I thought my dad was a deadbeat dropout that couldn't find another job. I worried about not having a house to call home because jobs were being taken away from my family when THERE WAS PLENTY OF MONEY TO KEEP THEM PAID AND WORKING. If you have ever been to Flint, or Lansing, or DETROIT, you'd know how true and how sad Moore's movie is. It's not some ploy to tug at heartstrings. It actually happened, and is still happening. Only, it's not just GM that's screwing with families anymore. It's Ford and Enron and any other huge corporation that benefits from the plight of the American Workforce. Read a newspaper, watch the Evening News. It's right there in front of you. People like Roger Smith are bending us over and sticking it in our ass because they know we're terrified of losing our paycheck, our homes, and our families; so afraid, in fact, that we'll do anything to keep that shred of job security we hold so dear, like take "stock options" and reduced pay cuts in place of a secure pension or a good health plan.
from apockalyptik :
hah.. great idea with the battery.. and if your hands are ever cold youre supposed to stick them in the general vacinity of your crotch... it warms them up and such. [ahh yes.. this is what they teach you in girlscouts]
from brimac :
those tricky little bastards! i know exactly what you mean, and believe me, pixies, waaaaay worse. They pull hair. damn pixies. Oh, yeah, dig the diary dude. most spiffy. brianna
from bluesage :
Can I just say you're hilarious? :)
from flyinby :
so where were you 7 years ago when i was a 21 year old virgin looking for the right one, my perfect 10? where were you when i was making the biggest mistake of my life, marrying my husband (scores about a 6). If I had met you then, you'd be married and having glorious, intimate sex on a regular basis . . . and I'd be happily snuggled up to you, falling asleep in your lap while we were watching a late night movie. *sigh* You sound so perfect it makes me wonder if you are really like that or putting on a show! I'm such a sceptic these days! Not that you'd have thought me to be your 10, but you sure as heck would have been mine!
from chubbychic :
I can't get over how funny you are.
from cant-make-me :
do you have pictures of yourself (well of course you do, but i mean online)? just wondering (curious george)... and i left a comment on the tag-board as well (just so you know).
from dcalien :
Thank you for mentioning humor in your comments. My humor is usually reserved for notes, gb entries, and real time conversations. As for music, it is music that brings out emotions in me. Now I am off to find out about your shirt. hehe
from sayrchan :
Stumbled into your diary through a banner, wandered about reading, was thoroughly amused, though I didn't always agree with you. Much fun. Quote: "I will not meet wonderful, amazing people sitting at home at night writing novels in my Diaryland diary." I beg to differ, speaking as someone who has met several and become very close friends with two. Also, I met my girlfriend of a year and a half on a mailing list, which is at least similar. And this is the obligatory part: Congratulations! You're a stalkee! For now, anyway, as I will certainly be back.
from castmeaside :
you seem pretty funny and generally nice enough :o) baaah don't know what to type. ¤Julie¤
from miss-edith :
I love you and I love your shirts!
from maeve-arie :
I am SO ordering like three of those...after break is over. I have a friend that needs one desperatly!! You rock ya big nerd... Maeve
from ehadams :
Well, I was going to post this on your tagboard but it told me I was over 200 characters. Denied! Anyway, about your t-shirt: Wow that is funny. I dont think I would be caught dead wearing that, but it is pure comedy nonetheless! (Plus I live in "evil" LA. I'd probably be attacked or shot or something.) If you end up wearing it out let us know how it goes. As with any invention you really should test it before putting it on the market. Love your diary- keep up the good work.

Don't care about greasy, maggot children! Deny deny deny....MUAHHHAHAHAHAHHAH!! Hugs and Kisses Maeveie :)

Note to my readers: Whoever this asshat just below with the offensive name and comment is, I don't know him. That word is pretty damned offensive, even for me, and it's really not ever funny or useful. Please ignore him.

Your comment on walls was so insightful. I was not aware that my wall was even in your memories. I am honored by my presence there. Thank you.

I clicked on your banner and found more than I was looking for. You see most things with humor, and I appreciate that. You are definitely going on my favorites!
from cant-make-me :
hi :) this is w-a-n-t-e-d this is my new diary. hope you like it.
from ehadams :
Hi there! Clicked on your banner ad today and had a good hour or so reading some of your older entries. You made me laugh many times and for that I say thank you. I'm adding you to my favorites so I can be sure not to miss another laugh. Have a great new year. ~E

I think at some point a lot of diarists start writing for an audience... I know I did. But either way, it's still good times. Congrats on the 300th entry. :)
from dcalien :
Enjoyed your 300th entry. I hope someday I have time to read more of your back entries.You are such an excellent writer, and you certainly have met your goal of including humor.
from mansonwookie :
Hmm, your diary has entertained me, good work... have a happy new year and all that stuff.
from forleafclovr :
Just wanted to drop a note telling you how much I enjoy your diary (I couldn't say thniffles w/out smiling or laughing :P) and to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year! ~Lindsay~
from cuzumakemego :
Hey, thanks for pointing that out--you were right, I searched for songs under "Brown Derbies" and not only got "Eye of the Tiger" but also about a million other songs that I was equally excited about. Well, take care, and by the way, your diary is the best :) Bye!

Yesterday some jerky almost ran over me in his black Jetta. I got mad and loudly called him a dildo, and this other guy standing on the sidewalk started laughing and smiled at me. For some reason I thought that guy might have been you, even though there's no reason it would have been. Just thought I'd share.

The sock explanation: Socks are really sucked in to the dryer by a vent. God explanation: The way I see it... If you believe, you have everything to gain but if you don't and he is real you have everything to loose. Think about it. Atleast you have something to live for, atleast you have a good role-model as in how to live your life. The morals are good. The life lead is rewarding. I'm willing to die to prove God does exist are you willing to die to prove he doesn't?
from un-bad :
Are you telling me that certain people can actually NOT FINISH a bottle of wine??? I thought it had the potato chip rule too. Once the container was opened you were required to consume the contents.
from unchbunch :
Oh, darn. I meant to say that it was a buttplug.
from unchbunch :
That thingie in your October 1st entry is a stopper for bottles. You use it as a cork after you've uncorked something. The rubber rings are to keep the thingie in the mouth of the bottle. It's kind of art-deco-y, but you should try drinking half a bottle of wine and then shove that stopper in there instead of the cork, and you'll see what I mean. I guess. I hope things are well with you.

Thank you for writing my entry for me tonight. It was quite a time saver. Of course this does mean you are stealing my life... if you sleep diagonally across your bed too I'll just tear my hair out though.

Just had to tell you--your banner rocks!
from un-bad :
I wish everyone had tags like that not only at concerts. Things would be really easy then.

Yeah, happy birthday --but saturday I made it 26 years a virgin. I win... I guess? Anyway, thank you for your comment about wishing me happy. I guess, what I am learning, is that there is more to life than happiness. And I mean that. I equate happiness with contentment/complacency. There is plenty of happy, not enough peace. xo purplefinch
from ghostlight :
happy birthday!
from smerrol :
Thanks for signing the brand new guestbook. I agree completely, stalking is a bit on the pathetic side. No, it doesn't bother me that Errol #1 swashbuckled and wore bad tights. But it is a little disturbing that he was a womanizing drunk. Favorite weather has to be those warm humid thunderstorms where the sky is pure black but the ground's still lit up...

To be "cool" Don't be a jackass.. there is a reason they call the show "JACKASS" be yourself.. trust me, things will end up better for you (reason 1- you won't be constantly putting on a show, reaon 2- people will like u for who who u are, refering back to reason 1 thus you don't have to put on a show, reason 3- damnet not putting on a constant show should be enough) this advice coming from a high school cheerleader.. trust me u'll be happier in the long run.. i've learned my lesson & i know i am
from eggstone2000 :
i, too, enjoy dave atell's insomniac. a show about bar-hopping? that's what i think of as great "reality" television.
from nerve-agent :
I liked So Long and Thanks for all the fish but I think the first might be my favorite. I'm not sure.
from somatic :
heh. just came across your little corner of the 'Net through favorites of favorites of favorites (or something like that). i was frightened away by your offhand talk of Mr.Rogers ruling the world. :)
from nerve-agent :
I love the Hitchhikers Trilogy. Which was your favorite? Sucks Douglas Adams died.
from th3dhorseman :
*grin* I know.
from vancookie :
god bless you for telling the truth about mr. rogers. he is a genius and a gentleman. i am proud of you, neighbor, for speaking out!

Hi I just read your entry where you were commenting on drugs and djs....I think unless if you're a fan of "techno" then it's harder to appreciate the whole scene. The reason Oakenfold is so popular is because he has the newest songs being sent to him. And mixing songs together is more of an art, a techno DJ is more than some guy that puts a record on, there's a lot of things you can do while you mix (it's not just about mixing beats). Plus they usually have a personality (similar as you would probably think a radio DJ would have) so they're fun to watch in that sense too. Plus you have to watch your crowd, and know exactly what kind of music to play, when to play something more dance/chill or whatever. As for drugs, obviously different people have different opinions, but to say "what's the big deal" and to slam something...I think you can't really say until you've experienced it. i'm not saying if you go out and have drugs you'll be so wow-ed and your opinion will completely change, but hey...it could. Just my own opinion. I know the entry was really old, but I just saw it linked to my site, so I wanted to comment.
from forallweknow :
A big congratulations on your diaryland milestone! What a sweet, thoughtful, yet funny writer you are...keep it up!
from purplefinch :
Um, Hi. I just wanted you to know I have been reading your diary and I love it! It's ok if you don't want to join my ring (but I'd love it). I am just glad we've all found each other and can relate our different stories. my best to you.
from august-x :
Yeah, the first time I told someone I was attracted to them it was in a note, too. Last year. Those same words said aloud would feel stupid. There are some very emotional things I am completely unpracticed at saying aloud. I guess people *do* say these things, though, just I've never heard them said aloud because they are said in private and no one's ever said them to me. So I'm not familiar with what these things are supposed to sound like. Make sense?
from ratboy77 :
How I missed some of your stuff previously is beyond me. But I can relate, brother, I can. Your "book of revelations" entry is so incredibly on point for me, as I was wearing those shoes not six months ago...Keep up the excellent work, good sir.
from lynnstjoseph :
I second that! (and I didn't mean to sound harsh or anything; after I wrote it, I felt a little bad about it) but what I forgot to add was that I think you're a total cutie pie.
from ladiebug :
i don't think you realize the extent of how you'll make a girl feel lucky when you meet the right one. but that's just my opinion.
from lynnstjoseph :
Ok... here's the deal. Thinking about groceries and carseats is depressing. You might think that girls all reach a certain age and start craving motherhood and just want a guy who would make a good husband and father, but you're leaving out the most important step, which is that they're looking for somebody they can be friends with and have a good time with, because what the hell is the point of marrying and having kids with some guy who already describes himself as a Ward Cleaver type? They're figuring you've got your 40's for that type of shit. Not that being responsible and intellegent and whatnot isn't attractive, because it is, but you have to present yourself as the type of guy they'd want to be friends with too. It may seem like a long shot, but finding a girl who wants to be your best friend first and in a few years think about the taxes and the carseat will make you a lot happier than some girl who's desperate to find a husband/baby's daddy right off the bat. Cause those girls are scary. Oh yeah, leave the virgin part a secret for a little while, too. Good luck and sorry the note is so damn long!
from ladiebug :
have i told you already to go to burning man, i can't remember. if not - GO! i wrote about it circa august 2001, so go go go! i guarantee you won't regret it!!
from unchbunch :
I wanted to say thanks. Good ideas should be shared with people. I hope that's cool & that things are well.
from lynnstjoseph :
In response to your question about my diary, I just can! It's a secret how I do it, though. Hehe. Thanks for the mention.
from madamsarcasm :
How incredibly cool of you to write a thank-you entry for all your favorites... specifically "forallweknow", hehe.
from th3dhorseman :
yep. like i've said before. everything's just a bunch of crazy stuff that happens.
from lynnstjoseph :
In my experience, if you like where you live, you'll be a LOT happier. Whatever you do, don't move back in with your mom, if for one reason. Ummm, well, you do want to get a girlfriend right? Girlfriend+ mom's house= no. Hehe. Keep the Casa de Marty!!
from ladiebug :
hi - i just wanted to say that i enjoy reading your work and that i'll definitely be back for more. you're witty, intelligent, hilarious to boot, and i couldn't stop reading your stuff. awesome work! be well, anna
from unchbunch :
I'd like to give advice on the subject of moving back in with one's parent / parents, but it wouldn't be very good. It seems to me that such a move should only be made out of dire necessity, and that I'd think this is why birds make such a big deal of pushing baby birds out of the nest. I hope your decision brings you many benefits.
from th3dhorseman :
It's my expert Dave opinion that you stay where you are if it makes you happy, and try and cope with the nagging and guilt trips. You can forget about those thins when you're out and about going on road trips and seeing movies by yourself and playing Star Wars on your harmonica.. if you lived there, you'd be aware of it CONSTANTLY, and would be less happy. That's all anything's ever about anyways, is trying to do things the happiest it can be done. That's my thought anyways..
from aglaia :
I like your site. :)
from forallweknow :
Aaaah! What a kickass concert that must've been!! Tom Hanks?! Stevie Nicks? TOM PETTY!! Crap I would've killed to be there!
from th3dhorseman :
that was me who asked if you bought any Tab. I've never tried Tab, so I woulda bought it based on that alone. Even if I didn't like it, I'd probably buy some anyways, just because the opportunities to pick it up are few and far between.. plus, I think they mentioned it on the Simpsons once or twice. Someday.. I'll find that 80s town, and I'll buy me some Tab. I said Tab a lot more in this note than I ever have in any other notes I've ever left throughout my entire career as a diaryland-user-type.. guy.
from lynnstjoseph :
I read your question after I left the previous note. Honestly, I don't know if I'd choose to re-live any of the moments. I think we tend to build them up in our heads, and it might just be a letdown.
from lynnstjoseph :
I do as I'm asked. You are rockawesome.
from unchbunch :
11,718 accident-free days. Very, very funny. Kudos.
from th3dhorseman :
Your stories are great. I'm definitely a fan. Makes me want to start saying Bah-rito to everyone, even though I don't really like burritos very much. I'm impressionable that way. I want to get into a big explanation of why your stories are cool, but I can't without sounding all high and mighty and that's bad. Anyways. Yeah. Talk to you later.
from lynnstjoseph :
Real Genius is a great movie. "I made you a sweater... I hope it's the right size... I have a younger brother, I use him as a sizing reference. It's just something I do at night when I can't sleep."
from lynnstjoseph :
You know, I always suspected that it was kind of a scam, but those little tags intimidate me. They seem to speak with some kind of laundry authority. Hahah. I like you diary, especially the "confused...disgusted" list.
from unchbunch :
Again, it is I. Sorry to bust in like this, but you can always delete this entry. At any rate, the person in question for that particular joke (of January 23rd) was actually Richard Feynman: ...http://users.spec.net/home/cewagner/richard.htm... Dr. Feynman was a funny guy.
from unchbunch :
Whoah, that's kind of a bummer, re: William's sister's friend... But I suppose you knew that. Nice metaphor you threw in, about dropping a glass. Hope things are well.
from th3dhorseman :
what you put about me in your profile is about one of the nicest things any diaryland person i don't know has ever said. thanks very much.
