from atrandom :
I once read your diary fairly regularly. It's been locked for I dunno how long. It would be great if I could read it again.
from gallinula :
Add me to the list of those who are either coming back to Diaryland or who've always been here, but have lost the access to your privatized entries. Miss you... :)
from edithelaine :
miss your writing. wish i could have the sacred key to peek.
from thisismywish :
I used to read and would like to continue.
from weatethesea :
would it be ok if i had the password? i keep wanting to read this.
from avantbedroc :
me too, pls tell me the secret
from orangepeeler :
secret diary lady, wassup?!
from nakedpride :
I would love to continue reading your diary if you're allowing other readers.
from dinosaurs :
i listened to the kinks all day yesterday. maybe i was channeling elka!
from orangepeeler :
hi hon. miss you. xo.
from wittgenstein :
Hi Elka, Hope you're doing well. This is Evelyn (of "Buh!" fame, if you remember). I want to contact you privately but don't have your contact information. Could you send me an email at my first+last name (no dashes or periods) at gmail.com, and leave your email address or number? Thanks. Hope to talk with you soon. -Evelyn
from boxx9000 :
I found you by accident, but I agree with you 100% on Palin being a huge liar. Palin does NOT speak for me.
from mariastuart :
I just read about the returning of saturn yesterday. I felt like I was reading magical words. Suddenly some things fell into place. I hope they can do for you too. (I became 30 last year so I know what you mean.)
from raven72d :
I love the Yuba 2008 photos!
from weatethesea :
This is good. Sometimes I want to copy and paste the text into a Word document so that I could make the font giant, (because it would feel good to read it that way) but ultimately, I decide that is a little bit creepy. Anyway.
from orangepeeler :
gabe piece is amazing!
from hlao-roo :
I really love your last post. It just hit home for me.
from raven72d :
Lovely entries. Fun photos, too.
from swallowthkey :
your latest entry == my life in a nutshell. nostalgia's a bitch, and so are all the crazy things you do because of it, like running away to ireland just to keep from sending that letter you're dying to write. haha. i hope it's gone in the morning, the way you miss him.
from peanutduck :
Yee yee! What's happening, darlin? This is Rita from lj and zines and etc. This is my new real diary. I have even been updating it! I love ya, dollface!
from dinosaurs :
sometimes, it is just enough to know that you're still alive. xoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxox
from dirtylinda :
I am really glad you are writing on your diary again. I missed it a lot!
from moodswing :
i hope that you continue to write more often
from explodingboy :
indeed
from crestone :
jack, awe, jack...i'm a dancer...
from crestone :
take me to salzers.
from dinosaurs :
i have just realized that you may have been boo-scaring me rather than boo-hissing me.
from dinosaurs :
boo your own self who never came to visit!
from dirtylinda :
oh what a beautiful way to say this thing you are saying!
from dinosaurs :
thinking about you.
from katherinhand :
elka, i'm so very sorry to hear about your gram. i keep thinking of your writing about brushing her hair.
from whiskeyblood :
I would like to point out that we updated our journals at exactly the same time yesterday. 17 hours ago we were both updating. <3 Maybe I'll move to you instead of Chicago. Maybe.
from dinosaurs :
so... if i don't see you again until april which is when i will be once again in your fair city i will be slightly heartbroken due to the former prospect of seeing you before that long, but it'll do if it has to as long as you swear swear triple swear that i will in fact see you in april.
from whiskeyblood :
Two cats on cold snowy nights are a solace like no other. Did I spell that right? Solace. It looks right...but I"m hungover. Regardless, it is bliss. Unfortunately, those same two cats in the scorch of summer become tumors of fur that make you sweat and feel every pore come to life. That is not so solacey. Kitty cat gumbo is more what it's like. And you do what you need to my lamb. My love is still here for you just bubbling and boiling slowly over a back burner. ::kiss::
from iblamemyself :
Hello. would it be ok if i added you as a favorite?
from atrandom :
You may be my most favorite person I've never met.
from dinosaurs :
oh elka, favorite entry ever.
from dinosaurs :
i've been missing you.
from bluecomix :
Just read through a bit of your journal. And though I'd drop a note. Since, I'm so like, hardcore and all. Mm hm.
from thebetween :
fugazi: "what could a business man ever want more..." - chiarella
from fuschia :
i totally feel you on this entry. i don't know, i'm going through the same thing.
from wolfgirl88 :
I almost fit all of your criteria... except I can be really loud in my goofiness (that might not be bad), and I'm not fiscally responsible because I can't be. I haven't the means of making money yet. So, basically, this note was pointless. At any rate, I wish you good luck with finding someone. ;)
from dinosaurs :
some day soon i will write you a detailed email and then i will cash in those fluffy hugs when you come visit me (are you still?).
from wolfgirl88 :
i had a dream that this cowhand's wife had cancer just as my horse fell over from some strange muscle pull. then my dad woke up and had a quote from john wayne in his head: "...i have a cancer." i just thought this would be interesting to mention. <3
from likeaforest :
i love this entry.
from fuschia :
change is good :)
from dinosaurs :
on your way to fucking canada, stop in fucking bellingham.
from wolfgirl88 :
haha :) i'd love to help you
from dinosaurs :
are both of our lives crazy right now?
from spondaic :
you have an awesome diary template layout. i like.
from monstermovie :
i would have called that day but i don't have your phone number. you should give it to me and you will begin receiving manic latenight phonecalls. ps-i love you
from wolfgirl88 :
wow...that is something else. who is this strange, eye-linered man?
from dinosaurs :
me. too.
from dinosaurs :
i totally stole the random thing from you, and i guess from jenn by proxy. it's maybe my new favorite thing, and ohhh so humbling.
from likeaforest :
o elka, i wish you could've gone to see m.t., too! i also wish/hope that we might still meet someday, if that is not too pushy of me to say. also! i think i will try to do some sort of zine about places that don't exist, although i won't have any time to think about it until the summer. i may pester you to write something for it, if you have the time/inclination.
from dinosaurs :
amazing!
from dinosaurs :
my favorite part of all: you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them I look at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world except possibly for the "Polish Rider" occasionally and anyway it's in the Frick which thank heavens you haven't gone to yet so we can go together the first time and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
from dinosaurs :
who was the girl that did embroidered or needlepoint portraits of people? i forget her name, but she was all over the place for awhile and i was pining over this portrait of jacques brel and i tried to convince my husband that a couple of thousand dollars to make me sublimely happy was a small price to pay, but he didn't go for it and then i forgot who she was and forgot that i wanted it until just now and now i'm pining all over the place again.
from dinosaurs :
oh please, you are.
from chiarella :
glad i wasn't there, then. compliments make me nervous (as do complements).
from dinosaurs :
i adhere to a very strict rule of never applying to anything i won't assuredly be accepted to (apartments, jobs, colleges, credit cards). this is a terrible foible of mine, and i admire you for being rejected which sounds like a ridiculous thing to say, and i could've just said bummer which is kind of how i feel... but anyway. if we aren't completely broke (read: if anyone buys anything from us at APE), i will buy you a drink this weekend in celebration/apology.
from chiarella :
it's my joke that my favorite type of rejection is the form letter. and if you mean, is it a stock reaction to make fun of their having forgetten the comma, then the answer is no. don't associate with anyone who would judge you but fail to use good punctuation. if they can't get a form letter right, how can they be trusted to judge anything else surely?
from dinosaurs :
well, looks like we're boyfriend and girlfriend.
from dinosaurs :
ive already offered this to ms. katherinhand, but howsabout a bikeride in fancy outfits (perhaps, as she suggested, a la daisy buchanan) and a picnic? you both cheered me up when *i* needed it; it's about time i return the favor.
from dinosaurs :
it's just the opposite, like cloudy all morning and sunny in the afternoon for just long enough to get me hopeful that the sun might still be out after i'm off work. it never is. let's trade for a week or something.
from recieveher :
i hear you. life needs to tstop for more than fifteen minutes at a time.
from softblossoms :
i am so entirely with you on the moving to a wooded village/making babies escape route ... but here's a nice thought from my mother that gets me through: "if it were easy, *everyone* would do it."
from dinosaurs :
im bored at work (which obviously happens a lot, based on the number of notes ive left you lately) so ive decided to bestow upon someone the distinct honor of 'best note in all of novembre's notes.' aaaaand the award goes tooooooooo!: from doorag : wow you got to ride on a elephant wow
from dinosaurs :
it's on its way, and additionally, i think ron rege is playing a show with deerhoof sometime during APE. at least HE thinks he is, so maybe that's it, where we can wear flowers on our lapels.
from dinosaurs :
dear e., i'm in the midst of writing a short-short to be illustrated either by me or my husband and im perfectly confident in my screenprinted covers, pretty vellum endpapers and choice of font, but im a little concerned about the content. i would trust you, my co-favorite diarylander, more than anyone but one other person to tell me the truth about this little beast. if i emailed it to you and promised you a copy of the finished product would you take a look?
from chiarella :
oh yeah, did i mention wes anderson went to ut@a, too? ... and there's something powerful about the word "skirt". maybe it's way of getting around things.
from dinosaurs :
1. i wish we werent almost exactly the same age so i could be of some help, but my vision of the 80s is all neon and bad pop, no baseball. 2. april 9-10, i'll be the girl with the permed-looking bangs.
from chiarella :
ut@austin + nyu. the former is the better, the latter is a safety. there's no third because you know why.
from chiarella :
know what you mean about the dressing up, done the same. though can't explain why. i imagine a sad girl in a pretty dress would make a wonderful image, but i watch too many movies. so my shirt+tie+dirty shoes, clean shave+messy hair thing is an attempt at that; "if i am sad and pretty, who wouldn't want me?" i think. and then become happy. (smile)

from thefictions :
thanks. i just rearranged a lot of things from this AMAZING website: http://misprintedtype.com/v3/. enjoy.
from weatethesea :
hello back.
from wolfgirl88 :
i understand what you mean. there are certain things that mean home to me, too, and bob dylan playing in the house has got to be one of them. :)
from enid4seymour :
i have just enjoyed your diary. thank you for letting me visit.
from thefictions :
hello, you may or may not somewhat know me, but i was wondering if i had your permission to photoshop a picture you have up on your page, a shot of a building (or something - it's sort of blurry) from the inside of a car, apparently on the highway. if at all possible, i would like to mess around with it and use it as a banner. please let me know.
from fuschia :
iiiiiiii love you
from dinosaurs :
I LOVE THIS ENTRY
from dinosaurs :
i like reading tragic lovestories and i think youd write a good one. i like leaving you notes instead of signing the guestbook. and obviously theres been a crimp in my plans for san franciscoing, but maybe still. we're getting a table at APE, so maybe then too. xxoo
from wolfgirl88 :
that ban on gay marriage vote disgusts me.
from dinosaurs :
ps. but its not the first weekend anymore. it might be the third, but i'll let you know so maybe we can narrowly miss each other somewhere.
from dinosaurs :
in highschool i was told that it was extremely poor form to contract anything - always i am, i will, would not, you know? i think that was quite possibly the worst advice ive ever been given. also, im still coming to sf.
from likeaforest :
yes yes, i think you may be onto something with guestbook comment you left! also, for the record i am still faithfully reading both diaryland and lj, even though i've been very quiet as of late. i've been meaning to warn you for a month or so about that triumph the insult comic dog dvd. (i hope you were referring to the best of and not come poop with me, because i actually RENTED the latter and o, i would not wish watching that on anyone. no sir.)
from dinosaurs :
ill be in san francisco the first weekend of november. you know, fyi.
from fuschia :
grad school! how exciting. what's your concentration?
from dinosaurs :
funny: Ezra Pound wrote Harriet Monroe on Jan. 31, 1915: I dislike the paragraph about Hamlet, but it is an early and cherished bit and T.E. won't give it up, and as it is the only portion of the poem that most readers will like at first reading, I don't see that it will do much harm" (Letters of Ezra Pound 1907-1941, ed. D. D. Paige
from chiarella :
i think i might be feeling what you are feeling, with words hardly enough to approximate, but still the only method we'd even think to use.
from dinosaurs :
whats mine is yours.
from dinosaurs :
e, i took something from you. hope you don't mind. xxoo
from spitfire79 :
monday. look up. around, maybe, 6 or 7 or 8PM Pacific Time.
from mangotuesday :
love.
from raven72d :
So-- you're a fun discovery on an August afternoon...
from vaselinemind :
i tried to sign your guestbook, but it didn't work. oh well, i really like the way you write, it makes feel happy, and i get a strange sort of deja vu while reading, like youre reminding me of something from a past life. i love it. i'm adding you to my favorites.
from novembre :
I WAS QUOTING A DIFFERENT VERSE GODDANG!!!! ahem.
from dinosaurs :
somewhere down there nicholas totally slapped you around for misquoting devo and i laughed my ass off reading it just now.
from spitfire79 :
i am in my last two weeks too. i gave three weeks notice, though, but they're really not pleased.
from chiarella :
oh, haha! i guess i didn't explain that well. the terrified feeling went away after a couple seconds, and it felt nice to have it there. i mean, it could either be there or not there. i think i like that it was there, and now it is not, so these notes no longer have reference points, like sandwiches that are really only two pieces of bread.
from chiarella :
at first i was terrified, seeing the words up there like that, outside of the notes page. but i'm generally quick to panic about anything lately. i can even feel my heart beating now. i'm probably being a little too melodramatic about it. and now i can't shut up this keyboard, either. shit.
from chiarella :
about those ladies and their conversation: i've a friend that's fond of saying of his (and my) retrospectively poor relationships "she was trying to steal my transcendence", which i guess is to say that a person will either grow in your sight (in a reciprocal fashion) or will steal your eyes.
from fuschia :
you happen to overhear the most intriguing and true conversations
from spitfire79 :
oakland is another planet. my friend ven worked there for seven years...there are stories. i'm glad you're ok. i do so much driving...it's really scary how dependent you are on other people's good judgement, or how your life is affected by someone's lack of it.
from starwhore :
you remind me of someone i love very much. take care and keep well always. xxx
from fuschia :
oh darling cupcake :(
from dinosaurs :
as i said in my own diary: if i were driving and not flying id be there.
from fuschia :
that's a gorgeous story
from dinosaurs :
elka you should go to the comiccon
from raven72d :
The kitten story was sad but pretty... I hope that many of the kittens found a home... And I wanted to say that, yes, you're a random discovery. I love the diary name...and the way you write. I will be reading you.
from spitfire79 :
i liked being the girl waving out of airplanes. i do, you know. i will.
from softblossoms :
oh i would really love that! and i'd make you something in return.
from vocalfern :
i like you
from hthespy :
hi e, i like that you like my dog from afar. i never thought i was a dog person until i met him and he has stolen my heart. his name is gus and he is black with long silky hair and an amazing tail. he is totally rad even though he is kind of badly behaved sometimes, like barks and lunges at joggers and kids on skateboards when you are walking him. or the way he licks your elbows and looks at you soulfully when he wants some of your dinner (a.k.a. begging). i'll see you when you visit and i hope you are well. heart, m.r.
from likeaforest :
well, moving is a bit off in the future (sadly), but any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated! (i know extremely little about the bay area, but it looks like perhaps oakland may be the most affordable place to live, from what i've heard?) also: do you really like joyce, or were you maybe just listening to thing on npr about him? also also: i have not forgotten about the cookies and trip to the pirate shop, no sir!
from novembre :
lake merritt is between lakeshore and grand avenues, next to downtown oakland. it is quite lovely. do not attempt to swim in said lake, though. there are other lakes for swimming!
from spitfire79 :
where is said lake?
from unresolved :
http://undermined.diaryland.com. thank you for reading :)
from spitfire79 :
so! tell me! what fun and exciting things are there to see and do in the magical land of oakland??
from dinosaurs :
italy or diners; its really up to you. i understand italian AND love pie so i could go either way.
from dinosaurs :
oh elka lets vacation together this summer.
from thefallofart :
i'd still like to read
from wrecking :
Braving the further uncovering of diary secrets by family snoops is a most noble endeavor. Good luck and thanks for letting me know!
from katherinhand :
hallo. thanks for the tip. i think d-land fear number one is the spying of nosy family members. oy, i say. i hope you are fabulous and how is your new digs?? i think i once lived right down the street, on kempton. WEIRD!
from pragmatics :
thank you for the heads-up!
from novembre :
my diary is locked for the time being because i happened upon a very nosy family member. to read novembre, just say "hello" twice.
from likeaforest :
elka, let's be friends! maybe some day soon i can come out to the bay area and we will go to the pirate store and eat cookies! what do you think?
from spitfire79 :
hi. still enjoying your diary tons. it makes days at the office feel less stifling. i think i may go to china rather than berkeley (as they have not called me back yet) but when i do, i will wave when we fly over san francisco.
from autumn-death :
I was unaware that organic vegetarian jelly beans existed.
from wrecking :
It is kern0099@umn.edu, dude.
from chiarella :
bobby fischer pushed himself too hard. i feel like my list is unbiased, now. it's a mini-extended conversation we are having.
from wrecking :
Oh! Oh hey! I have acquired some time recently and will likely, godwilling, soon have built some things to mail your way! Where should they be mailed?
from chiarella :
superb list. and utterly inexpedient, yet with such speed and experience. (maybe experience doesn't make sense there as much as it sounds nice there, so it remains.)
from pragmatics :
this is the new place. no moptops yet.
from explodingboy :
you must be one crazy dancer ;-)
from explodingboy :
Myself I would love to put a red planter on my head and run in circles, bones or no bone. @ <3sixties soul<3. I had always picked you as a Mod girl. Quite the fashion revival down here.
from novembre :
In ancient rome There was a poem About a dog Who found two bones He picked at one He licked the other He went in circles He dropped dead Freedom of choice Is what you got Freedom from choice Is what you want
from chiarella :
i very well may be wrong, but i think the devo song actually says "freedom from choice is what you want, freedom of choice is what you got," which puts lots of importance on the prepositions... sorry to bother you if this is incorrect...
from circling :
thanks for adding me to your buddy list. the photo on your d-land page never ceases to make me smile. thanks for that too (a smile)
from katherinhand :
oh elka. i hug you for the boob. and other things of course. and i thought of you after going through MFA woes. there should be some kind of consolation/congratulation party. but i wish you luck luck luck and i hope hope you are well. xoxoxoxxo.
from might :
the private space is where i can be a whiny baby and not feel bad about it. or so i have decided.
from likeaforest :
lovely lovely entry.
from spitfire79 :
decision?
from wrecking :
I will begin preparing a most magificent package as promptly as possible. (If not within some number of weeks, then surely soon thereafter!)
from wrecking :
When there are things to mail, certainly!
from fuschia :
i love kittens and i have never been to the ocean. is your new zine different than the valentine's one?
from hthespy :
hi E., i would love to see your zine. your diary never dissapoints, it is good stuff. my address is: m.r. 7344 SW 54th Ave. Portland OR 97219 if i ever finish this zine i am piecing together that i have been working on for a year-ish, i will send it to you. so excited. thankyou. heart, m.r.
from dinosaurs :
im opening a handmade underwear shop, come to the grand opening this weekend. love, your notes crazy astrid
from dinosaurs :
to god
from dinosaurs :
write a book and i'll publish it
from whiskeyblood :
dear heart darling love. I will rub each of my teeth affectionately and think of yours and send you my now numb due to much rotting mouth vibes...pain in the tooth sucks. "Come back from San Francisco..." (Oakland) and allow my to hold you through it...I will...Like and elephant protecting young baby elephants. I was stupid last night anyway...I remembered that we were to talk, but instead I drove far to visit someone that I had put so much distance between to backslide into self-deprication and affection. It was a dumb night. Nice though, oddly. Anyway, we shall talk soon, my sweet. *kiss*
from dinosaurs :
ps. excellent office entry
from dinosaurs :
theres this LOOK i learned from cosmo - ridiculous right? - you look down with your eyes, then with your head and slowly look back up with eyes ONLY. works like a charm, no lie.
from dinosaurs :
i flirt, shamelessly and fully aware.
from whiskeyblood :
it was me rambling about the snow. all of my efforts to get someone to come walk in what was probably the most beatiful snowstorm I have ever seen failed. Some were angered that I would even ask. So I called you in a last ditch effort to share the storm with someone. Instead I sat in my living room in the dark listening to The Lioness crying. Sunday would be perfect for a call....I think it will help.
from whiskeyblood :
Apparently I still have long distance. Check your answering machine.
from dinosaurs :
amen sister
from whiskeyblood :
i love you. i'm afraid i have no long distance now. you will have to stalk me for a moment until i can scrape up the money to stalk back. stupid. I'm suck on the idea of inertia and the pull of our own self created energy. (Blame the silly movie/book of the same name/idea)...and ours seems to pull toward and away from one another less and less...more toward now...all the time. We still have a drunken date to attend to, ya know?!
from dinosaurs :
you know elka, i do the same thing and while i sortof feign irritation when friends think entries are about them, in truth, i like the ambiguousness - having them guess, not know what im thinking, that i could be in love with them or extraordinarily pissed off and i think they secretly like it too, so this is late but my vote should could triple because i think we have an understanding: leave it as is.
from simplysubt1e :
thats why i have 2 separate diaries/journals. if i dont wanna talk about something in one, i leave it in my other, and vica-versa. but.. i think answer c, just because its random. hope your day is great. :) toodaloo. (i just was lookin round and i found ur diary..)
from dinosaurs :
i never got any valentine, but you can hit on me all you like, missy miss.
from likeaforest :
while there may be room for disagreement about iron & wine and bonfire madigan, i am assuming neither of us are so slothlike that we could possibly afford to miss the microphones show in may. o!
from peth :
Little pink dogs would be so lovely right now. A parade of them, galloping past me.
from softblossoms :
touché!
from yourdog :
wake up you sleepyhead
from agonie :
tee hee
from dinosaurs :
we must be having very similar days, ha
from whiskeyblood :
Lost Legends of New Jersey by Frederick Reiken.
from morestories :
have you read "The Body in Four Parts" by Janet Kauffman? your writing makes me think that you would like it. here, a quote from it: "I can say this about myself, and it could be said across the board: she is piece- meal, she is not herself, she's numberless, not numb, she cannot be counted out, she's gusted air, open fire, she is not watered down, she's dirt and debris. Also, she is a hank of hair, hacked."
from autumn-death :
Hm... I had that fortune the last time I got a fortune cookie. :)
from softblossoms :
hi, i like your writing. and i am also trapped in the blue/grey/beige cubicle dimension. even more maddening is the fact that the people at my company with actual offices got to have them painted candy colors of their choosing. :( i'd settle for a window.
from central-red :
all "_____ is the new ______" statements make me so happy. seriously.
from ndecisiv-cky :
Dude! I picked Milan Kundera too! Awesome. great job my friend.
from all41 :
i really enjoyed stumbling across your journal. i will add you as a buddy so that the stumbling can happen more often.
from sukirella :
GRE's, oh my. Around here the testing facilities make you empty all the contents of your pockets, take a picture of you, and then they lead you to a room of cubicles where you have to find the computer with your picture plastered across the screen. And they have a camera pointed at you while you take the test. If that's the way it is for you, you should pick your nose for the camera for good luck.
from whiskeyblood :
You should wait a few days and then send one out that says "Hi, I just put a "deskulled" human head in the front kitchen. There's a melon baller next to it. Happy Holidays!"
from whiskeyblood :
Sometimes I wonder why my eyes never catch the little blips and bloops of errors that I leave in my chaotic wake. It is almost like English is my second language or something. "Hij! Todd iz me and I have 25 years!" Anyway, come, lets go build a snow-fort! We'll line it with good smells from Pier 1.
from whiskeyblood :
You should come over for the "first big snow of the year slumber party" that i'm hoping to have. Unfortunately the storm is really raging and we've received about two inches in the past hour and a half. SCARY! BUt come over and sing songs with me while we dring HOT TODDIES! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! I. LOVE. YOU.
from morestories :
your writings are so lovely and fine. thanks for the chance to browse this gallery of well-wrought words & pictures of a fellow oaklander.:.::.
from doorag :
yo happy birthday!
from dinosaurs :
you just get prettier as you age elka
from doorag :
re: AIM, yeah same
from doorag :
today : going to get my car fixed! vroom vroom
from doorag :
hi whatre you doing, the 1st side of "music to eat" by the hampton grease band just ended & i wanna go drink beer but i got no $$$
from sukirella :
hey, aren't pregnant ladies not allowed to ride rollercoasters?
from whiskeyblood :
I feel like someone has thrown a brick through my metaphoric windshield. I soothed myself with your old entries. I wish you lived close so we could have tea and wander through leaves that for some reason, today, look like fragmented glass.
from novembre :
man. i need more notes. yes. more notes. got to love the notes.
from billierain :
hi elka this is billie rain. i do remember you. hey- have you looked at my new website? it's really cool! it's at http://billierain.pscap.org. so, hi. that's a strange coincidence about fibromyalgia. it's is a most unpleasant illness. thanks for writing me. love billie xo
from likeaforest :
truthfully, i am much too preoccupied with the upcoming movie adaptation of lemony snicket books to give willy wonka the serious consideration it deserves. but oh, jim carrey playing count olaf makes me far sadder than mr. depp, i think. bah.
from whiskeyblood :
As an aside, I went to friendster and your testimonial is there...you, dear, are the sweetheart! You make me blush. I have my friend KB: ellabea.diaryland.com addicted to your journal, btw...although that in not a hard addiction to come by. *smooch*
from whiskeyblood :
Heh..yeah..I have been avoiding that place due to the interworkings of stupidity that seem to be the backbone of that site. I love it though...I'm just on the patch so to speak. Soon I will need it again like the cigarette I shouldn't have smoked yesterday evening. Shhh, don't tell.

from gagfactor :
Thank you for your kind words, love. I would think, though, that I'm of the odd/shifty variety of reader, but then again I do have some bitchin' highlights these days...what those have to do with one another is anyone's guess...hope you are having a gorgeous day!

im not sure if you meant april the specific lesbian or this month, also named april... but my month of april has so far been very much the lesbian and personality in your description. i am pretending not to watch with held breath, and curiosity of what personality and tendency may will walk in with.
