from somnambulist :
Did you change passwords or do I have a bad memory?
from zencelt :
Big hugs.
from missspunk :
I used to read you all the time. I have not been around in awhile but i'd like to have access to read, if you don't mind sharing with me.
from zencelt :
You are a dating machine! I'm not worthy...
from dulligirl :
What the heck do you have on your dvr? I get panicky when mine goes above 50%.
from zencelt :
Hope you feel a nice lift soon! That must be miserable...
from zencelt :
Wow! Very flattering. Congrats on the PI offer.
from batten :
I'm so terribly sorry for your loss/losses this year. Sending you big hugs, honey. Praying that 2009 will be a better year. Love you. Hang in there. -J
from zencelt :
I think you're due for a miracle Rach. I'm putting in orders now, and you're at the top of my list. Hang tight!
from zencelt :
Hey Rach! Sending lots of good, healing vibes to your dad, your dog and your wallet...
from sbojo32 :
There is nothing wrong with wanting to be a priority. I just recently learned this lesson myself. Good luck with whatever you decide. I know how hard it can be trying to figure it all out.
from zencelt :
Hey Rach! Sorry to hear your feeling like the relationship isn't what you need it to be. Sending lots of positive vibes off to you. See ya!
from krugerpak007 :
Hope you are doing ok. Can I please have your password?
from bathtubmary :
hey lady - happy birthday!
from somnambulist :
(re-post, cuz it helps if i add the note on YOUR notes not MINE...) g'book says it's shutting down, i'll have to find something new. yuck. // as far as "Yuna" (no i don't actually call her that! she punches hard!) i'd rather not the temptation be out there, even though i'm sure you'd be fine. Suffice it to say for now I don't think you have anything bad to worry about for either of us. :)
from krugerpak007 :
Not sleeping is awful. Take care. x
from zencelt :
Hey Rach. I just buzzed by and saw that you are still having Gyno issues. I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't envy you. I'll be wishing for good test results that will set your mind at ease. Take care!
from missspunk :
Hey there. just wanted to know if you would send me the password and info to access your diary as I got a new computer and well I forgot the information and it was saved into my old computer. Hope all is well.
from dulligirl :
Remember how I wrote not too long ago about how good a person Eston was/is? Well, read my entry that I just posted. And you are so right about Jim. And seeing him in person with that smile on his face...awww..he is the sweetest and a very real kind-hearted person. Not some player.
from zencelt :
I think I may have backed them down to a week here and there instead of one steady block, because that would cost way too much. Still, it'll be nice to have a change of scenery, see my friend out there and maybe hit a beach or two.
from dulligirl :
Your comment made me laugh out loud. Because you are so right. I re-read that entry and thought the same thing myself.
from dulligirl :
Thanks for your comment. I don't want to get hurt either. I know I'm crushing on him but it's not love. I just enjoy being around him. Usually he treats me pretty well but he'd been drinking when he said that thing about forgetting I was going to be there so his filtering system was not working when it came to not saying something stupid.
from theturtle :
Rachel, I'm on a new machine, could you email me your login for your site again? Otherwise I'm stuck waiting till work on Monday... thanks...
from sixweasels :
Glad Dave stepped up to the plate. I don't think ABD is anything to be ashamed of, but then again I'm a grad school dropout because I couldn't juggle the program and a 50-plus hour workweek and have fun at the same time : ). Either way, you need to be proud of how far you have come. Hugs.
from sixweasels :
"now that we know what is potential in the future, we need to enjoy the present" is about the best advice you could have given to him or yourself! One day at a time, and enjoy the ride : ).
from sixweasels :
I don't know for sure, since I can't imagine what losing a daughter would feel like, but I think that it would be a nice thing for her mother to know that 10 years later, she still has an impact on someone who considered her a friend.
from sbojo32 :
*Hugs* I know the situation isn't the same, but I can sympathize. I know how hard it is to hang on to the smallest things and convince yourself it's the right thing to do because you know that clinging to hope at least gives you hope. I don't have the answers (hardly!!!) but I wish you luck. It shouldn't be this hard. That's what I keep telling myself, anyway.
from zencelt :
Oh, you and Tim are oh so remeniscent of Zen and H, the uber flaming asshole... I truly get it. And it sucks donkey balls. But take my advice. Dating gay guys is not the answer... So never do it.
from sbojo32 :
Isn't the waiting for the phone to ring game the worst? I'm sorry! He may still call today and make plans for tonight, though. (And just forget about the "advance planning to set up plans" part). I've got my fingers crossed for you! Because as much as waiting by the phone sucks, it's easier than trying to get over someone. :-/
from polly-esther :
Hi Rachel, I'm glad to hear everything went well! Try to stay warm out there! :)
from zencelt :
Wishing you comfort and peace for your surgery. I'm sure it wil be successful all the way around. I'll send lots of experienced vibes your way :))
from sixweasels :
Sending good thoughts your way for your surgery. Hang in there, Rachel!
from dulligirl :
Well, I have to confess that I was a theatre major, was in several musicals and choirs. So yea, I can sing well. Now with karaoke it's not always in the best key for how I sing so it isn't a winner every time. So please come karaoke with me anytime! First drink is on me.
from somnambulist :
here is the full "Klingons" speech, which apparently involved the Vulcans too at some point (!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe4WA58rMu0
from sbojo32 :
Thanks for the note - of course I don't think you're saying too much. I appreciate the comments (it makes me feel better that I'm not insane or crazy... just female?). Thanks for reading...
from zencelt :
That was some bad luck hooking up with a self-pitying retro piece of shit. I shiver just hearing about it.
from sixweasels :
We're so alike in some ways it's scary. The awake-at-night preference, for one. And forgetting to add water to the "easy" noodle soup dinner is sooo something I would do!
from anempath :
heya, lol thanks for the welcome and yeah there is a large difference between boys and men and it would be nice to find one. There are too many lovey-dovey-clingy boys kicking around for my liking. So yeah I hope you and me both find someone who isn't. xx
from eucalia :
Hey, Rach--eucalia:locked. Can I please have your info too? I had an incident with IE7 wreaking havoc on my computer and lost my stored passwords then.
from sixweasels :
More hugs coming your way. I'm sorry Scott didn't work out, but you seem to be handling things in stride.
from sbojo32 :
*hug* I think I'm doomed to be perpetually single too, if it makes you feel better. :-/
from sbojo32 :
Good luck w/ the colposcopy... I know it's not fun, but it's one of those necessary things so you can feel better just by knowing. And for the sex w/o condoms - because HPV is passed by just contact (read: someone literally just touching you and then touching any part of themselves), you can have sex w/o condoms - just knowing you are passing it on. But if that kind of contact has already occurred, you probably already passed it on. But you are right - it's VERY common for people in their 20s and 30s now. I'd talk to him about it, but don't make it seem like it's a huge stressful deal. Good luck!!
from herswansong :
Hey thanx 4 the note. =]
from krugerpak007 :
I hope the elections go your way! Take care. x
from polly-esther :
Hey Rachel, I'm glad you had a good time! I didn't really feel like talking about my mom so it was cool...and crying just happens. Often at weird times. I really wish I had gone to the Vegoose show! I love Ben Folds, Fiona Apple and of course The Killers. I had no idea BF and FA were playing!
from sixweasels :
I so get the sleeping at 6 am versus 3 am thing. It's hell on a day-jobber. I never understood why the rest of the world won't cooperate with my chosen sleep schedule : ).
from sbojo32 :
I'm probably the last to give advice on wedding dates, but I think a good rule of thumb is if you have hesitation about asking the person you're dating to go to the wedding, don't do it. Go with the friend... even if you sometimes sleep with him. Or, RSVP with the +1, and buy a little bit of time to see... and then the bride will know that you're bringing a guest, but just put "and guest" on your table card. Then you can decide who you want to bring as it gets a little closer. But again, all my advice comes with a grain of salt ;-) Good luck!
from theturtle :
Well, WHY NOT be the "aggressor?" Why does there have to be "an aggressor" anyway? Do what you feel. Seriously.
from polly-esther :
Congratulations! You ARE a winner! I should be around then. The show is a really big deal here. You'll have a great time.
from krugerpak007 :
So sorry I have been such a stranger, been catching moments on this computer to update my diary and copy my writing. I really hope you are ok and I promise to catch up when I get out of hospital. Thinking of you. x
from snugbug69 :
Since the topic is baseball and at the risk of being banned, I just have to say GO TWINS!!!! Apologizing in advance. -Em
from sixweasels :
Tried to leave a note in the guestbook but it appears to be wanking out. Just wanted to say hi, finally got a chance to get caught up with what's been going on with you and thanks for sending the password!
from snugbug69 :
Thanx and the note is gone. Don't know how the messed up my email settings but it should work now. -Em
from theturtle :
Your guestbook is still messed up. I left a note about standardized testing and the site wasn't answering... you might want to choose a new GB provider!
from snugbug69 :
I'd love to continue reading... -Em
from missspunk :
Thanks for the password. I deleted the note so that people who are looking into your diary wouldn't find and and gain access. Thanks for the compliments as well. It's always nice to hear. I don't always believe it and then other times I do. :)
from missspunk :
I've been reading you for a long time. I would very much like a password if you you care to share with me. Hope everything is going well.
from shadow19 :
Long time reader, occasional commenter (usually music), dog-lover, would love the password, if that's cool.
from krugerpak007 :
MM, interesting, as long as it is something good. Dont forget me!! OK? xoxox
from captvfirefly :
I'm glad you were able to talk to the insurance company to get them to pay for your sleep studies! It always bothers me that even though we have health insurance, it doesn't always pay for the things we need to stay healthy. Stupid insurance. Also, do you have one of those dream books where you can analyze objects you dreamt about? I have one about animals - even insects have meanings, so I know dogs do. I'll have to look it up when I get home. The cruise to Iran though? I have no ideas. heh
from zencelt :
Frank sounds like he'd be a nervous bedmate.
from imissfriends :
Yankees vs. Red Sox is the bes rivarly in sports :) .. I'm a Yankee fan, sure I enjoyed the "W's" this weekend but I do like it when the games are more of a battle .. great crowds though .. pitching sure got beat up on both sides though ..
from zencelt :
Its was a hillbilly dude at The Bar (Surprised? No?) He said he had toilet paper in his truck and he could stop off the road for me in the way to his place. CREEPY!
from dulligirl :
Thanks for the encouraging comment!
from zencelt :
Oh my poor baby. Many huge hugs as you navigate through your grandmother's death. And, absolutely wear the red. If it makes you feel good, wear it in celebration of your grandmom. She'd probably appreciate the gesture.
from irreverent1 :
Oh honey, I'm sorry to hear about your Grandma. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. (((Hugs)))
from sbojo32 :
Keep your head up... I'm sorry it seems like everything is crashing at once... but it has to get better eventually, right? Things will be okay.
from zencelt :
Oh Jeez Rachel! I would have dug a hole and buried myself my now. Try to take care of yourself. I know its hard when you just keep flipping the same pages over in your head. Let me know if there's anythgin I can do other than send you my strongest, most empathetic thoughts.
from dulligirl :
I'm so sorry you're going through all this at once. I'm sending you buckets of well wishes. And I'm very sorry about your Grandmother. It isn't easy going through that, I know.
from seventrain :
Hey girl...I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma's condition...I do hope that somehow things will be okay...that she will hang on for your sake, your father's sake, everybody's sake. I will be thinking of you. *hugs*
from krugerpak007 :
Just catching up. Sorry to hear about your gran. I hope your dad improves and that things get back to normal for the family. x
from dulligirl :
While I don't blame you for not wanting to wear some kind of mask thingy, I completely understand being excited about knowing what your sleep problem is. Here's hoping you get those 8 hours soon and no napping!
from zencelt :
Happy entry anniversary!
from irreverent1 :
That is so cool about CuteSophmoreYearMathClass Boy! I can't wait to hear how the date goes!
from zencelt :
Oh, how cool! Its like fate...
from dulligirl :
Hey,that's cool. You know my sister was an engineering major and was often the only girl in the classes. Which means she got to be around a bunch of smart, cute and cool guys. She married one of'em and they are still friends with a bunch of those guys. They really are fun.
from seventrain :
Hey girl..long time, no talk. I finally caught up here. Glad to hear your dates are going well! =) I hope things get better and better for you. Let us know if the anonymous note leaver contact you..haha Ttys.
from polly-esther :
Damn guestbook. Anyway, I must have missed something. I was under the impression for some reason that you were watching Maggie for someone. Did you adopt another dog? What's the scoop? I scanned some older entries but couldnt find any answers. Your neighbors sound like morons, by the way! That's lame to leave an unsigned note like that.
from krugerpak007 :
Thanks for all your comments. xox
from krugerpak007 :
Of course you will visit. You have to stay here even! I wont let you get off to easily! Take care and thanks for thinking of me. x
from krugerpak007 :
Glad you got the extension. I wish I had the social life you did and that I could push myself to get out the house and do things! Have a good weekend. x
from krugerpak007 :
You are lovely.
from krugerpak007 :
Of course its natural to feel hurt, it is really hard to realise that people who you have tried to give your all to, can change or just be people that dissapoint and hurt us. Take care. x
from krugerpak007 :
Not sleeping sucks. Its great that you are putting yourself out there and meeting all kinds of people. I need to learn from you! x
from dulligirl :
Good luck on the sleep problem. If you hit upon something that really works..let me know!
from seventrain :
I know I sound like a total geek but I'm so excited for you about your date with Anthony and that you're going to see each other again! It's nice to be excited for myself and for one of my friends too. =) I hope it all goes well...sounds good so far! Hopefully we're both having some luck...and it sticks. Can't wait to hear more! ~amy =)
from krugerpak007 :
Isn't it funny how our pets mean the world to us and some people just don't like them! I get so offended. My cats come first I tell you! :-)
from seventrain :
Glad you had a good time! Gotta love a baseball game. =) Btw, forgot to tell you..my diary is back..well, not that it was down, but I have started posting again after three months and it's no longer locked so ya don't need to sign in anymore. =) Anyhoo..talk to ya soon. Cute about the thunder/dog btw. :)
from dulligirl :
An extra inning Red Sox game that they won?! That must've been a hell of a lot of fun.
from krugerpak007 :
Feel better.x
from profess0r-k :
Congrats on your victory against the Evil IRS! Hope your day gets better too. - Professor K
from seventrain :
Sorry to hear about your car...that blows! I'm glad you got it back alright though..bastards. Glad to hear about your Uncle doing better! Also glad you had at least one good date this past weekend....I get to join the dating club again..finally..lol..I scored one for this week...we'll see how it goes. =) Ttys.
from krugerpak007 :
I wish I had the motivation to start going on dates. I always land up with the sick weirdos..:-( Good luck, have fun and be happy! xoxox
from seventrain :
Good luck on your dates, girl....and even if they don't work out, at least you're going on dates! I couldn't find a decent man if he was right in front of me..lol. Anyway, have fun...can't wait to hear how they go.
from krugerpak007 :
Thinking of you.
from seventrain :
I'm currently reading He's Just Not That Into You....and also...Be Honest, You're Not That Into Him Either. Interesting reads. The first one comes from a guy about guys so it's easy to think it's all true..which it probably is. Though, I hate to think all men are truly all the same underneath. I don't know...with your situations and mine, I thought maybe you'd be interested in reading one or both. They'll probably make me more paranoid than I already am..haha..but oh well. It kinda de-myths a lot of things and makes you really think about all the excuses guys use on women, etc. It's hard to explain but check it out on the Barnes and Noble site or go get 'em from the library if you can at least. I mean, if it's about guys, by a guy, maybe he's giving it to us straight...but again, for some insane reason, we women still like to think not all men are alike underneath. Who knows. It sheds a little light though, I spose. *shrug* Check 'em out if you want...kinda interesting. ...And obviously I'm posting this cuz of your "man" entry/entries. Let me know if you wind up reading it/them.
from sbojo32 :
Good luck with the no sex vow. I'm going to try something similar, actually... we'll see how it all goes!
from theturtle :
This sucks! I haven't had sex in months! I am envious!
from dulligirl :
I totally love Veronica Mars. I did not call it being Beaver as the bad guy. But it explains how freaked out he was with Mac. I hope to God that the CW picks it up for next year.
from seventrain :
Hey girl..I know I haven't written lately or been around much with my crappy life atm too...but hang in there. You will be fine. Just like you tell me. Now we just have to believe it? haha Well, anyhow, someday, we'll have to hang out and actually have some fun and forget about life for a while. I know we could probably both use it. heh. Anyway, you're right on the friends thing too. I'll ttys.
from sbojo32 :
You wrote, "I feel like I live so much of your lives with you. Do you feel that of me?" And the answer is yes, absolutely. I think I know more about various people's lives, issues, and thoughts from their diary/blog/journal than some of my friends in real life. And, I feel like I share a lot here... that people that know me don't know! It's interesting, in a 'that's kinda cool' way. And you were right on with your paragraph on relationships and them ending and fading to friendships, etc. today. I liked it.
from zencelt :
Unbelievable. I didn't think any company, medical or not, would refuse someone's money. Just because you are not within a specific, globally accepted risk group they wouldn't take your images. I'm so proud of you for pursuing it anyway. There are so many that would not, because of the intimidation factor. You just can't trust anyone to care or make decisions for you.
from krugerpak007 :
Happy easter. feel good and take care. I went out with a cleaner from work a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. So who knows? xoxo
from seventrain :
glad ur back, girl...thanks for the msg on my site btw *hugs*
from rdhdprincess :
Hang in there honey. You can get thru this, whatever it is. You can do anything!
from theturtle :
About Stephanie: if she's "badmouthing" you and you have friends in common, *do nothing*. If they believe her, they have squishy brains and are no loss to you. If they don't believe her, they're for real.
from batten :
Still think you should dress puppy up in the dress and then email her the pictures after her wedding....
from missspunk :
I guess I am pretty spiteful. If I were you I would email her and say that if her dress is not picked up at either of the times you specified that her dress will be located on your front lawn for her easy and convenient pickup next week. LOL I thought it was kinda funny. I hate people who think that everything should be done on their time schedule. You already went out of your way to store the dress and now she wants to pick it up when it is best for her. If the dress was so important she would be there bright and early as soon as you got up, in order to get it. Tell her to shove it.
from batten :
I think you should dress up puppy in the dress and send her a picture... that will get her lil' hoity-toity bitchass in gear to pick up the dress. Breaking up with losers gets easier with practice. Tell her she's just your training dummy. Hang in there. -J
from violetwoman :
Hey, if you can end this friendship, I'll take heart. My friend is the same as Stephanie - totally there for me when I'm miserable, and a complete cow when I'm happy. She doesn't even hide it, either - each time I tell her I've got a boyfriend, she freaks out, tells me I'm too needy, and that she wants me to be single with her! Sometimes I mess with her head and tell her I'm unhappy with the hubby - she gets all excited and hopes for the worst. Nice friendship, eh? It's so damned hard to break it off, though. God, it's not like I don't have other friends. Good luck!
from krugerpak007 :
Happy Belated Birthday! xoxoxo
from seventrain :
Rach...if I don't get to talk to you before your birthday or before you leave...Happy Birthday!..and have a great trip! I hope you have a really good time...try to relax and enjoy it! Esp the warm weather..ahhhh. hehe Talk to ya soon.
from missspunk :
Thanks for the note. And yep you are right. Well we did some group problem solving for the presentation section. The girl not pulling her weight with us is presenting on her own. SO that she does not affect the rest of us. But the proposal part is done and handed in. Teacher was impressed with the level of work. So that makes me very happy. Now I am off on study break for a week....WOOHOO
from theturtle :
In general, people who want to "talk to you about why you're angry" are the people who've deliberately done things to make you that way. They're looking for absolution. As I told Melody once, "it's amazing, isn't it? You do things deliberately to make me angry, I get angry, then you wonder why."
from krugerpak007 :
Glad to hear you sounding so good. things will work out, I have all the faith in you. I think you should get haloscan comments so I can comment after each entry so you know what I am talking about. Geez who do I think I am? :-) Anyway take care and have a good weekend. xoxox
from theturtle :
I have to say, the optimism you show in this entry makes me feel better. And no, you don't have to have children to be great people. Your friends will appreciate keeping you around!
from zencelt :
When will you be in Miami girlie?
from krugerpak007 :
Your little one is too cute. Those pictures are too too cute. And you are so not lame!
from seventrain :
First, I think that what was said down there is probably true...most men suck...when you want them, they don't want you and when you give up, there they are, finally wanting you. What the hell. It makes no sense and it sucks. Other than that.....cute pictures, Rach...that's too funny... =)
from batten :
If I try to caution my friends they think I speak out of anger at my past. But that simply isn't true. I could tell you certain things about what you've been doing and how it won't bring you happiness but I know deep down you already know that. It's a catch-22. Especially since you know how strong my gal-pals are. Dunno, babe. It's a horrible thing, this whole knowing shite and not being able to speak the truth. Take care of yourself, be kind to yourself, hug the puppy and hopefully we'll see you again this summer, right? Big hug. -J
from krugerpak007 :
Me and you, are so alike sometimes. Men really do suck I think. When you are interested they are not, suddenly when you are not, they are. I don't know whats going on in their heads half the time. Please feel good. You are beautiful and bright. xoxox
from seventrain :
We still love ya, Rach....and most men do suck...I can vouch for that..heh.
from krugerpak007 :
Your dog is too cute! Sounds like my cat Mashka. Feel good honey. I have started to think that MEN = PAIN. :-( Take care! xoxox
from zencelt :
You'll have to tell me how to do that e-mail thing.
from theturtle :
I did indeed send Alison a note... I think I got the tone right, which is, "if it doesn't work out, I'll still be here, but I'm going ahead in the world." Otherwise it ends up sounding like that old Freddy Fender song from the 1970s.
from krugerpak007 :
I am in love with Molly! Happy Near year to you. Sending good thoughts and wishes for 2006. Sorry to hear about Sal. I also go through stages where I start the online thing and then give up, and then start again and then give up. I don't know what I want anymore. But I do know that even with my beautiful kitties that life is not all roses been alone. Sometimes one just needs someone to need you, and someone who wants you. Take care and keep in touch ok?xoxox
from seventrain :
LMFAO! I looooove your quote at the end of your "Nostalgia" entry.....freakin hilarious!
from rdhdprincess :
Suck it up and tell them how you feel. I'm thinking good thoughts for Molly, dear. Mwah!
from seventrain :
hey rach..first of all, with the mood i'm in lately, i love the "men: can't live with them, can't punch them" title of your previous entry...rock on. lol however, if you want to punch one, go for it..lol Also, love the "why dogs are better than men" site..seen similar stuff before and boy are they right...lmao hope you have a good trip...and hope things go well...talk to you soon.
from missspunk :
Thankyou for your nice post. Hope you have a good time in Montreal. I am in Ottawa Ontario not toooooo far from Montreal and I have been there a few times. Try and get to the BIODOME. Anyways good luck and have fun.
from krugerpak007 :
Happy holidays to you and Molly! xoxo
from krugerpak007 :
Glad everything is going well for you, and that your doggy is coming round..Take care and good luck with your Maths results. xoxo
from violetwoman :
Your journal is a great read - very entertaining! I used to be a lot like you - reading about your multiple men brings back memories, sigh. Now I'm old and wrinkled, and settled down with my hubby, but that's okay, too! I look forward to reading about more of your life!
from seventrain :
Hey girl...I'm glad things are working out with the doggy...I wish I woulda been reading your entries as it was all happening..maybe coulda helped, I dunno...but anyway, it seems like things are falling into place. You two will be well bonded before ya know it. =)
from batten :
Dogs like people need time to adjust. She's jst lost all that was familiar and now she's hurt and confused. You can't force a friendship on any critter, human or otherwise. Take it slow. Talk to her alot, pet her when she seems receptive, give her food and let her come to you. Hang in there. She'll come around. Big hug to you. -J
from krugerpak007 :
hang in there...give her time! xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
So many men, so little time-huh? :-) xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
Aw, feel better, and good luck with the dog situation hon. xoxox
from dvlsdisguise :
By reading your psychic visit entry I got the feeling you've been to them before. Have they (or her?) ever been pretty accurate with you?
from krugerpak007 :
Glad your party went off so well! And I say, the more men the merrier...xoxox Kathy
from zencelt :
Ibuprofin is lovely stuff. Are you going to post pics of a decorated apt?
from krugerpak007 :
Again I say, go have fun!! (Are you sick of me already??) xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Thank you. And I say you are young and attractive-go out and just have fun!!! xoxox
from sixweasels :
Yay for cruises! Ours is now less than two months away and I'm starting to get excited. Oh - the fire thing is "muster," I think. I only know that because we always make fun of it when we go.
from dulligirl :
Thanks for letting me know about the previous/next in my new layout. I couldn't get it completely fixed but at least it doesn't jump to the designer's site.
from dvlsdisguise :
I hate the feeling of not having the closure or answers I need after things end. Sometimes I wonder if guys ever sit and feel the same.
from sixweasels :
I'm thinking of you and wishing you good luck with all the move stuff, and I'm so excited for you!
from rdhdprincess :
Good luck with the moving, and Happy Vacation. He kissed you, huh? Sometimes friends make the best more than friends!
from zencelt :
Going to a wedding with a man who has a girlfriend is probably not a cool thing to do. I would definately find someone else, or go alone so I could scope the groomsmen ; )
from sixweasels :
Sounds like Andrea is one of those people who has to always have it be about her - the kind of friend who can't share in happiness that takes away attention from whatever her thing is. I'd take a break from the calls too - you deserve to be happy without having downers thrown your way!
from dulligirl :
I was just watching some of Office Space the other day and couldn't stop smiling. That movie completely nails the insanity that is the workplace.
from dulligirl :
That was a jam-packed entry. As opposed to an entry with marmalade but anyway... Here's hoping all goes well for the condo and the moving.
from krugerpak007 :
Hope all goes well with the condo..xoxox
from rdhdprincess :
Fingers crossed, Sweetie!
from sixweasels :
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that things come through for you with the condo! Oh, and the boys, too, but there's ALWAYS time for those : ).
from krugerpak007 :
Sounds like you are having a great time...nothing like good food, good sex and I am so glad to hear you sounding so great. Whats happening with the new home? Take care. Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
All these men! You go girl. Just have fun and be happy.
from andreeb :
It looks really nice!
from krugerpak007 :
Congratulations! I hope you will be very happy there! xoxox
from batten :
No email but Zen and Pam have told me about it. Eastportgrrl will be in FL for her niece's wedding you'll have to do with just one of the Nap-town girls... Moi! Get my number from Pam and give me a call. I'll be there. Hey it's not like I have a job to keep me from hanging out, right? (grin)
from krugerpak007 :
Casual sex. Mmm.;-)I am holding thumbs for you and the condo. Can you post pictures? xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
Wow I am so happy for you.
from pandionna :
Dang. I need an entry about "all my men." Of course, I need some men to write about, first! You go!
from zencelt :
July 9 works. See you then!
from zencelt :
I've been reading and posting like a maniac, because it keeps me otherwise occupied. This wait has been killing me...
from krugerpak007 :
I think there is definitely nothing wrong with you. I think it is just hard to find decent, "right" men lately. Thats why I keep thinking maybe I made a mistake. I joined a dating site recently, and 2 of the men that I havent even met yet, we just spoke by webcam a few times just do not leave me alone. they call about a million times a day, and send the most lame text messages. I don't know what to tell you Rachel. I am hoping and praying that both of us finally meet someone normal, that love us for who we are! Take care and cheer up. xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
The date sounds really nice Rachel. I hope that it leads in to something more. I would like to see you happy! The tank tops sound great. I have put on so much weight I can't wear anything... Anyway take care of yourself, holding thumbs for you. xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I am glad you are doing ok and feeling good. Hope you have a good weekend. xoxo
from zencelt :
Try to do some lovely things for youself, like a massage (I know, its my cure-all), a visit with someone who's company you really enjoy, or whatever it is that floats your boat. It sucks, you're hurting and nothing will change that in the short term. I'm just so sorry that you no longer have a relationship that you enjoyed so much.
from krugerpak007 :
Sorry, I guess my advice sucked. I was just talking from the heart. I am sorry you are sad, and I hope you will start feeling better. I am here...We can chat on MSN sometime if you want. My username is krugerpark007. xoxox
from batten :
Sweetheart. I know this isn't any consolation but getting dumped isn't a bad thing. Being by oneself and learning to enjoy the silence is a very important thing. It's not easy but then the best things in life aren't always easy. Hang in there. And if you need a shoulder to cry on, my shoulders are broad and well-weathered by storms of this kind. Email me and get my digits. I'm always here to talk and give huge gygundous hugs maybe not in person, but certainly of the verbal kind. Love you. -Jenn
from linusthegirl :
I am so sorry you are going through all of this.
from krugerpak007 :
I can only relate. We try figure out what we did wrong. But it's not you. It's him. You are wonderful and smart and will meet Mr. Right. You mark my words. I am here to chat if you want. xoxox Kathy
from seventrain :
Hey Rach...read your weekend entries. I'm so sorry, girl. I've been where you are. It's tough when you have no control over the situation...I always hate having no control over certain things. Hang in there though...relationships aren't all they are cracked up to be. You'll be okay. *hug*
from virginmary :
that bites. over the phone is no way to break up with anyone, and you deserve better. i'm glad though, that you were able to have a more civil conversation with him later, and i'm also glad that he didn't string you along for a long time if he felt in his heart that it wasn't right. oh, and re: the dating women thing... if you have been thinking about it a lot, you might want to consider what that means. yes, some women who date women have "issues" as colleen said, but so do men who date women and women who date men and men who date men. i'm just saying that no one has the corner on "issues". ymmv, of course. but anyway, hang in there and :hugs:.
from krugerpak007 :
Rach, I am sorry. I know it sucks when someone dumps you. It sucks been the dumpee. In a big way. We sit for hours trying to calculate and list what WE did wrong. Why he dumped us. But please. Don't make that mistake. You are bright, and beautiful and a wonderful person. The world is your oyster and the right person does come along. Belive me. When you least expect it. It's ok to cry, but try and think positively too. the problem is with him. Not you. xoxox Kathy
from sixweasels :
I'm so sorry, Rach. You WILL get through this. Go dancing, and soon. Hugs.
from seventrain :
Hey Rach...I thought I was pretty up on tea...but wth is a bubble tea? lol Anyway, have fun this weekend!
from krugerpak007 :
Good luck with the data analysis seminar. I like Colleen and think she is right! Take care hon and feel well. xoxox
from sixweasels :
Maryland in July, huh? You'll have to keep us all posted so we can have another get-together!
from rdhdprincess :
Good luck sweetie! Also, the more I get to know you, the MORE I like you. I think you are just too hard on yourself. You are the best!
from zencelt :
Hey there girlie! How's it going? I'm still trying to catch up from the server crash. I'm still having problems with other people's entries showing up in red when I've already read them a thousand times. Eeeek!
from krugerpak007 :
Just been catching up a couple of your last entries. I think you are sounding great mood wise, and I hope you are feeling much better! xoxox
from batten :
Honey, what I can't figure out is why it matters so much to you. Can't you just relax and let what will be simply happen or not? This whole desperation thing is scary. Not just to your friends reading you but to men. Deep calming breaths. This is not life and death, here. Truly. Please stop working yourself up. Big huge gygundous reassuring hug to you. -J
from krugerpak007 :
I missed your birthday! Sorry, I hope it improved. I feel the same way as you do about men. I think you should just talk to him. Just have a long chat. I mean it is important for you to know where you stand. Talk to him. Feel better sweetie. Take care. xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Sounds like you are a bit depressed. Take care sweetie and feel better. I can so relate! Love Kathy
from batten :
DOn't worry about it. I'm not a radical righty. Most of my friends and family are libs. The guy just brought up a lot of tidbits that folks seem to have conveniently forgotten about whilst damning the Republicans and all their satan spawn... I'm just tired of it that's all. It was my lame attempt at a political entry. Don' worry about it, hon'. I'm not rabid about politics. In fact I think they all suck. Thanks for the note about Mommy. We're all still shaky. Have a great weekend. Peace out. -J
from krugerpak007 :
Yay, 24 hours! That entry made me sad. I hope you are ok and I hope you have a great time with your man. You really deserve some happiness, its been a hard time for you these last few months. So have fun with Todd. Relax and just enjoy. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Glad Todd is coming. Things sound pretty serious with you guys... Take care. xoxox Kathy
from zencelt :
Unbelievable, but yay for Brazillian men!
from krugerpak007 :
My question is who was the Brazilian man and can you introduce him to me? :-) xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I remember very clearly how awful last semester was for you, especially the first days. I hope this semester will be great for you. I am thinking of you! xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Glad to hear about Todd, that the pap is normal, whooohoooo and that you had a good time. xoxox kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Have a safe trip.I agree with what you say about therapy. My thera[ist is the same and she does not leave me alone. Although she does seem to help...I guess it does take time. Hang in there, and just feel good. You are so good going to the gym. Keep up the good work!xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
My ultrasound of that type, was awful. Even though she was so sweet. Anyway I hope everything turns out ok.I feel the same exact way as you. I have to answer your e-mail. Take care. xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
You sound so upbeat! I love to hear you so excited and happy. Take care. xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
You and me are so alike sometimes. The meds, the wine. Anyway. Try take things one step at a time. Men are frustrating I know. I hope whatever happens that you are happy. Thats most important. Enjoy tomorrow. Merry Christmas sweety! xoxoxxo
from zencelt :
OK, go ahead and panic. But, I must tell you to go back in my archives and read the one about where I got an internal sonogram and had bad thoughts about the sexy sonographer. Seriously.
from krugerpak007 :
Your pictures are beautiful! Do you know how pretty you are? Huh? Do you?!!!!! Take care honey and have a good weeekend! xoxoxox
from somnambulist :
Just a friendly note, your HTML is goofy on the page, I think you have an unmatched quote in the links. I'm using IE today (wait, why am I using IE?) so you can't blame Firefox. :)
from krugerpak007 :
I am glad you like this boy. he sounds sensitive and sweet. And you deserve only good. So take care and have fun!
from krugerpak007 :
I can so relate with you...Hang in there sweetie and feel good. Take care. xoxox
from rdhdprincess :
Maybe you scared him away with the pepper story? Or maybe you're just being sensitive, dear. Of course, maybe he's an ass. Who knows? One thing I do know is that you are normal and wonderful and full of life. And I would be sad without you.
from zencelt :
A new job is on the horizon, but not until I figure out what I want to be when I grow up. What I have is pretty much all there is in my salary range in this area. So they'll have to put up with my temper tantrums for a while. See ya!
from krugerpak007 :
Gosh sounds like things went pretty well with Todd and you had a good time. I know what you mean about been bewildered confused, not knowing where you stand, what the next step is. I just don't get men. Most men. No all men. I hope things go the way you want. You most certainly deserve it! xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
Thanks for all your words of encouragement. xoxox Kathy
from mortimersmom :
oh no, somebody pissed off Rachel, you'd better watch out! Seriously girl, I'm totally with you on this. My personal bone of contention is that 99% of *those* people use their religious beliefs as reasoning. But my own religious beliefs (judaism) have a very different stance on abortion. So why should their religion superseed mine?
from rdhdprincess :
Well, aren't you beautiful! Pretty dress, too! I can see why he was so taken. What fun!
from avalonte :
Thank you so much for your lovely note! I'm very flattered! Give me time to read a few more of your entries, I'm thinking of adding you to my favourites! Have a great weekend! x
from rdhdprincess :
Aw, that was sweet! I love that you are giving out the number. Revenge at it's finest. I shall keep it for myself and spread it far and wide. Great sense of humor. Great.
from krugerpak007 :
Feel good sweety. Holding thumbs for you! And I hope the game goes well for meme! xoxoxo
from virginmary :
i agree with you on the ARod thing. he WAS an ass. f-ing yankees fans, requiring cops in riot gear to be at the game. *grumble* but we all know what boston and one little house in philly will be doing tonight... praying our hearts don't get broken!
from krugerpak007 :
Thanks for all your comments. I would also call the police and complain. I am the world's lightest sleeper ever. Hope you are having a good weekend. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Are you feeling any better though? You sound happy, but sleepy.... Hope you are well. Sounds like the social scene is going great! xoxox Kathy
from zencelt :
Hey Rachel! Nice to hear from you! Sounds like your life is one romance after another. I can't keep up and I read pretty regularly. Must be nice to be so popular. Even though it is crappy to have a real prospect live so far away. See ya!
from krugerpak007 :
I am happy for you and Todd. So he lives far. Thats all. Invite him over. Really. He sounds nice. Please, invite him over. You deserve someone to spoil you a bit. Come on! xoxoxo
from sir-jeremy :
sorry we are fresh out of pie but if you act now . . . wait what . . . okay we are out of punch . . . do you take i.o.u.'s
from krugerpak007 :
I wish I could give you a big hug. Please don't just give up the meds without the doctor. I know I often feel like it too, but especially with Effexor, the withdrawal symptoms are crazy..Just take care of yourself, and feel good. Thinking of you. Kathy
from rdhdprincess :
Hi Honey, I am thinking of you and your Meme. Take care, C
from sixweasels :
I'm sorry for the loss of you Meme, Rachel. Thinking of you. Hugs.
from krugerpak007 :
I am so very sorry. When someone passes away here, we wish them a long life. I wish you and your family a long life. Best wishes. Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Wanted to just check in with you again. I am thinking of you and still praying. I really hope Jeff makes it on time. I can't find any words to say to you. Everything just sounds so overused or something. I am sorry for you and your family, you are in my prayers. Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Rachel, I am so sorry to hear. I don't know what to say. Just that I am thinking of you. And praying. xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Hi sweety. I am glad to hear that you are seeing your grandmother. I am thinking of you. It was wonderful to read about the dancing night, and your damn bra. lol. Anyway I hope you feel good. Take care and relax this weekend. xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Rachel. I don't even know what to say.I can't even imagine what you are going through. My first grandmother passed away when I was 13. I wasn't mature enough then to even understand what was going on even though we were also at the hospital saying goodbye. All I know is is that you must be terribly terribly sad and going through a terrible time right now. I hope it passes quickly and that she does not suffer, and I am here for you. And I am thinking of you. xoxox Kathy
from zencelt :
I called my grandmother on my mom's side Memere too. I'm so sorry your's is not well. Hang in there girl!
from captvfirefly :
Oh Rachel, I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I am sending strength, healing, and good thoughts to you and the rest of your family. **HUGS**
from krugerpak007 :
I am so sorry you are feeling overwhelmed and nervous. I hope that once you start and see that you can do it, and that you do manage that you will feel better. xoxo
from zencelt :
Wow, can you still withdraw from classes without a penalty? You have an aweful lot going on without adding a new course load. If going to school is something you dread, it is not the right thing to do. Call your Dr. and see what's going on. I'm sure its something she can help resolve to get you on even keel again.
from rdhdprincess :
Hi Babydoll~I'm sorry that you are sad. Hang in there. I am curious as to what the e-mail said, too. Whatever it was, just remember how wonderful, smart, funny, strong, and downright delightful you are. I know you are having a hard time, but when you do find the right one, it will all be worth it. (Sorry, I hated it when people said shit like that to me, but I mean it.) Big hugs, C
from krugerpak007 :
Of course we are interested in K's e-mail. Gosh, what did he say? I am 100% sure that you will find the right one. Usually it happens when you least expect it. I am a firm believer of that. I met Trevor by bumping in to him at the supermarket. For me it was love at first sight...I did a lot of chasing though..But seriously, I sometimes wish I was in your position. Go out and meet people, enjoy and have a good time. Experiment and go crazy. You are a young and gorgeous woman! I guess, though that the grass is always greener on the other side. Just cheer up and enjoy the time that you are single...Trust me!!! xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
No you are most certainly not the dumbest girl in the world. You are young, beautiful and you should go out and embrace that. Go and have some fun..But I want all the details... xoxox Kathy
from eucalia :
Heh heh, have I ever mentioned how addicted I am to bubble tea? I promise, my lips are sealed on points-values ;-)
from krugerpak007 :
Hope the pap results go well. Doesnt it suck!!! Way to go girl. Hope things work out weel with Dan. xoxox
from krugerpak007 :
Glad to hear from you, glad to hear you are ok with the meds. Hopefully after a little while all those silly side eddects will pass and you will feel totally good. Israel is so proud to get a medal. I think its just what we needed.And I am so happy to see you write that about Israel. That warms the heart. Anyway I hope you do manage to sleep. Maybe think about KG. Make up something. I do that a lot lately about Gray, and boy does it help me... Anyway take care. And feel good. xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I just wanted to check in with you..I hope you are feeling ok, feeling a bit better. You are missed. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I can relate. I have these ups and downs and I can't handle them anymore. I don't know what is going on with me sometimes, and I feel like I just want to be normal. I hate taking the medication because I keep thinking that I am taking it for nothing. But then I get revolting withdrawal symptoms. I think it is great that you are going to find a new therapist. Maybe that will really help you.It's good to hear though that you still go out and make an effort and socialize. I think thats good therapy too. Sorry I can't help you more. Feel good. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Gosh, he is scrumptious. Kayaking sounds like such fun. I wish we had it here... Have a good weekend. xoxo Kathy
from rdhdprincess :
I'm sorry to hear you are feeling crappy, Dear. My cure for that is pampering, of course! Manicure, pedicure, massage, something yummy! Even shopping will do in a pinch. Take a little time to just relax and pamper yourself and you will be a brand new woman! Trust me, I know this is true! Go on. Congrats on finishing the book, too!
from krugerpak007 :
Congratulations on finishing the book! Sorry to hear you are feeling crappy. It seems to be going around lately...Wouldn't it be nice if we could get together and go moan to each other over a bottle of red wine? We could share stories about Indian men! Take care and feel good! xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Great, I am glad you listened ... It is so sad to find out about people you went to school with and new in the past are no longer. Sad and scary! Ok, no more death! xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
That picture was too slutty? OMG. A friend of mine just came back from Italy last week and after seen her photos I am dying to go. They were amazing. Especially Venice...Of course Egypt is amazing too I am sure. I have only been to the Cairo airport for a few hours on my way to South Africa. Good luck with the reformat! xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Sounds like you had a great weekend! I am jealous. I have a husband, but no friends here. You are so right. Friends are so important. I miss going out, and speaking rubbish and just having a good time. I have a good time with my husband but it's still not the same..Sp appreciate them. And I will try appreciate him more! I posted the CD yesterday..Take care! xoxo Kathy
from zencelt :
I'm only taking the pain killer during the day, then taking the muscle relaxers at night. Lots of water, tea and adrenaline are keeping me awake at work. Crazy stuff. Who tears the muscles on half their back while sleeping?
from krugerpak007 :
I looked at that note before and I had started it "to cut a long story short" and then carried on like that...anyway just wanted to tell you that that e-mail was perfect. And I am glad you sorted stuff out with Andrea. xoxo K
from krugerpak007 :
I just left you the longest note and it got lost....rrr. Anyway to cut a long story short, what I was trying to say was that I am always the one to make the peace and to say sorry, and to "keep the quiet". And i am trying to work on myself to be honest and to say how I feel. Otherwise we bottle our feelings up, turn bitter and angry and it is just unhealthy for us, and ultimately we feel bad and unhappy. I don't know if this is making any sense at all, but what I am trying to say, is just be open and honest with her. Don't hold anything inside. Tell her how you are feeling.She cares about you and you guys will get through this and strengthen your friendship, while you will feel better getting everything out in to the air. Good luck. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I gave up on my therapy a while a go. I just felt like all that damn money was going down the drain. My husband keeps pushing me to go nack to her. I am also negative about the medical profession these days...I hope we both feel better! Thanks for your notes! xoxox Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Your gambling sounds like my gambling. I NEVER EVER win. And someone always has to drag me out of the casino.... Have a good Sunday and a good week! xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
Well I am happy that it wasn't anything serious, although I know it's frustrating as hell not to know what's wrong. Try and have a good vacation! xoxox Kathy
from seventrain :
I LOVE baseball!...But I'm a Mets fan. =) Oh how I love them. =)
from zencelt :
I do need a hunting partner! All my girls are taken at the moment. A nice long weekend up north sounds like a great thing to do in the fall!
from krugerpak007 :
Yey, I am glad it was nothing...99 more to go mmm... I hope you feel better, and I hope you have a bit of peace of mind now..xoxo Kathy (and I hope these notes don't bother you too much...)
from krugerpak007 :
Sorry the lunch date with A was a bit crappy. I am also sorry to hear that you aren't feeling great. Don't be scared. Just go and have a total check-up. Hopefully it will just be something little that you can just fix up and then feel good. Anyway I hope you feel better, and I hope you have a good weekend. Take care.
from littlelloyd :
Finding a good psychic is all about word of mouth in my opinion. There are a load of good ones out there, but mostly they don't advertise, or really market themselves much. Pretty much everyone in my clan of friends has been to Diane (The Psychic) and everyone has an increadible experience. She also emphasises that you have free will, and that she is not reading your future, just telling you things that are true about you (often from past lives and such). I would say, find some kooky friend or friend of friend and ask around. :)
from krugerpak007 :
Men. I guess we can't live with them and can't live without them. Also if you feel like calling David you should. I also hate game playing. If I want to call, I call. Hope you feel better. xoxo Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I am sorry things didn't work out with time, and that you are feeling lonely. It's funny but I am married, yet most of the time also feel incredibly lonely. I am sure that when you least expect it to happen, it is going to happen, and you will meet Mr Right. Take care. Kathy
from krugerpak007 :
I have only read a few entries and am going back now to catch up. Do not call him and do not e-mail him. Let him do the running after you! I think we are quite similar in a lot of ways.. (no offense to you of course:-) Hope you are having a good weekend. xoxo Kathy
from zencelt :
Damn them all to hell! If it gets too bad, go to the ER. They HAVE to pay attention to you. In the meantime, rest assured that soon it will be taken care of. Even if it is a struggle to get a decent appointment.
from odalisk :
that's exactly what I thought! What, we need a "stable, steady" relationship and they recommend this immature chameleon called the Manchild? Thanks! Plus, I really think that what with being "smart" and "aristocratic" we at least deserve a nod toward like, the gentleman or somethign.
from batten :
hug hug hug. You know you can always send me a note or even call. Send me an email and I'll give you my number. I know exactly what that "alone" feeling is like. Just try to remember that you aren't. There are folks out here who have never even met you in person who care very much about you. -J
from zencelt :
I was just going to send you the same note! How funny. When I learn to eat salt, fat and sugar free and like it, and exercise every day, I'll be fine. Eeeek!
from virginmary :
mmmmmm... mini robin eggs are The Best Candy Ever. hang in there, hon. this whole relationship thing can be so hard, and it's so *personal* that when things take a turn for the negative, they seem really icky. i'm glad you have good friends around you, though. ::hugs::
from zencelt :
Big big hugs! Keep looking out for you. Be really nice to yourself, and cry all you want. I'm so sorry it didn't work out as you would have liked. More big hugs!
from virginmary :
::hugs:: i hate it when my mind does that spiralling-out-of-control-thinking-the-worst thing too.
from rdhdprincess :
Help, help, help! My computer somehow forgot all it's saved information and I can't find your user name and password anywhere! I miss you. I just know I'm missing so much. I see from the note below that I missed your birthday! Do you still have my home e-mail address? If not, can you please send me the info to redhead_princess2000@yahoo.com? Last but not least, Happy Belated Birthday!

Its sounds like your cruise was pretty lame. What a shame! What cruise line did you go on?
from snugbug69 :
I've really got to not be taking a drink of Coke when reading the title to your entries. I understand now you're talking about snow but damn, that hurt coming out my nose. -Em
from batten :
Y'know that really pain and loss and grief isn't qualitative nor quantitative. It's how we come out of it all that makes it either significant or merely a bump in the road o' life. Do we change directions, hit the proverbial wall or keep going down the same street? If something I wrote stuck a chord with you, I'm glad. I write because the need to purge my mind of all the hurting words flows out of me and I can't help but scribble or type. But if, at the same time, what I've gone through or am going through, can help someone else get through their loss or struggle that much easier, then it makes the hurt somehow more worthwhile. Less senseless. Y'know? I hope you're doing okay. We should sit down and chat sometime. Sounds like we've maybe been sharing a road recently. Big hug to you, woman. -J
from evolver :
No, I'm not the Lauren you're thinking of, but I'm glad you enjoy my diary anyway. :) I'd love to read yours if you don't mind handing out the pword -- if you want you can email it to me at braylATmarietta.edu if you don't want to post it somewhere public. Rock on!
from battle-ramen :
Thanks for your words of support in my diary. I'm doing much better and basically trying to forget the whole thing happened, but it's hard because I know there are still people out there who are being fooled by her. I've tried to help, but there's really only so much you can do. I hoped writing about it would let people know what happened and hopefully save them the pain I had to go through...thanks for reading!

Hey honey. When'd ya lock up? I was going to your diary to leave a guestbook message saying "Hi" when I saw you were locked, lol. I'll check back some time later and leave another greeting like I sometimes do, but this time in your notes. Hope all is well! (I was *Jessica5891* just so you don't think I'm a lunatic)

Rachel - I just realized I never got a password! I'm a bit behind, I know, but please send one my way!
from batten :
Hi! Thanks so much for the kind note and words of encouragement. You have to go back to the June 1st entry or thereabouts for a synopsis of the train wreck. Thanks very much for leaving the note. Have a good Thursday. -J
from zencelt :
Look into the hostel route in Japan. bootsnall.com and hostelworld.com both list hostels (hotels that act as hostels) in Japan.
from zencelt :
Thanks for the note. What an experience! I hope I never have to see that again. Ick!
from virginmary :
oh, i love how nice people get during that first snowstorm of the season! everyone is so happy to help each other out. (philly is this way too.) and while i grew up in minnesota, i'd never heard of nor seen the "chair-keeping-parking-place" thing until i moved here. very weird, very surreal. glad it happens in boston too... happy snowday!
from captvfirefly :
Honey, it's not just Jews that lie about their height - ALL men do it! My boss even told me that men will automatically add at least 2 inches to their height when telling someone how tall they are. Nice, eh? But hey, at least you're out there meeting people.... ain't it fun? LOL (Yeah, I'm having such a blast....) :)
from zdubya :
hey you...you asked me a couple questions about eharmony on my site...probably the best 50 dollars i've spent this year...but then again i really enjoy talkin to people on the computer and i love converstation and learning about different people...so if you like those things and have an open mind and patience i'm sure you will love it like i do...here is one little tip that i got to take advantage of...i waited about 2 weeks to actually pay after i signed up and they sent me an e-mail that was 2 for 1...so i got 2 months for 50.00 ... that made it even more tempting =o) have a good day and good luck =o)
from virginmary :
grrrr guestbooks... anyway, i've been poking around for a bunch of entries, i see you on polly-esther's guestbook from time to time, and thought i should say hi! so hi!
from rdhdprincess :
Good Wishes!! Good Wishes!! Sounds like you are having fun. Um, did you say country music in a sushi place???
from rdhdprincess :
I tried to send my love letter to your guestbook, but it hates me, too! I will miss you, sweetie. Have fun!
from polly-esther :
Damn guestbook. You should read bathtubmary. she's into baseball too. She's in Boston...Somerville, I think.
from sixweasels :
Guestbook is being a shit again. Anyway, just wanted to say I definitely plan to meet up with all of you at some point during your B-More adventure! Dolffie mentioned you'd probably do downtown B-More Saturday, so most likely I'll hook up with you there.
from goovie :
yay newport! my grandma ad great-aunt used to live right outside in middletown. where was it that you guys went to eat?
from goovie :
i'm probably doing nano again this year. wheeee.
from goovie :
the boy next door plays tmbg and britney...what does that mean? it means go for him! :)
from somnambulist :
Thanks, Rach, even though ... I don't feel that talking about it is going to do me much good (and it usually just drives everyone away even faster, anyway). It's something in need of fixing -- I'd rather be out, DOING, than talking -- but there's no immediate solution, and it's hard to stay on course for a gradual, long-term one given (1) seeing what other people already have and (2) knowing the effort is often all for naught. Which makes for a really nasty and vicious cycle, eh?
from goovie :
yay, i'm glad you enjoyed wa9 and lori mckenna...and i'm glad you got to talk to katie; she's so sweet. they know me as goovie because of david morreale, who thinks "goovie" is the best word ever invented. :) so who's the next musician you're going to stalk?
from goovie :
*checks campfire schedule and drools* oh please, oh please tell me you didn't miss amy speace, rod picott, girlyman, andrew kerr, or jenn kimball on friday...and tell me that you won't be missing antje duvekot, we're about 9 (say hi for me! i miss them!), lori mckenna, kevin so, or sara wheeler tonight. oh! and chris and meredith thompson tomorrow!
from misstress :
Ha! I had to comment because my name is Elizabeth Rachel. *ahem* that is all. Carry on.
from girlwcurls :
Hey :-) just wanted to let you know that I was here, and enjoyed the stay.
from goovie :
*psst* i don't know if you saw my reply to your lj comment, but i have an lj code if you want one, and cds will be out as soon as i can rip an mp3 of "easy people" that doesn't skip every two seconds.
from zencelt :
OK. Time for a little intervention by your somewhat older singleton mentor. Being single will break your heart if you let it. Evil boys do it often enough, so why allow yourself to break your own heart too? Tim was only one possibility. The next one will be better. The one true one will be the best. Time for you babe. Use your alone time to find some sort of peace. It won't last forever. The next evil bastard is just around the corner ; )
from rdhdprincess :
Your guestbooks hates me and I did absolutely nothing bad to it. Anyways, you have gone CD crazy, woman! Ha! Sorry to hear about your shower fall. Damn hairy legs! Have you ever tried the new razor thingy that has the solid shaving cream-like substance build around the razor blade? I was surprised that they actually worked! I love them now, they are so easy. Just swipe, swipe, swipe! Ok, enough personal hygiene talk for now!
from snugbug69 :
Da Vinci's Notebook? They're awesome! And funny too. "And when I look at my enormous penis..." Good stuff.
from goovie :
yay! i'm so glad you enjoyed dvn! i miss them. (ok, yeah, i saw them last week, but still.)
from zencelt :
Read Sixweasels' last two entries, THEN try to feel sorry for yourself. From another thirty-something singleton trying to make her way in sea of men who are our options. Makes you kinda envy those cultures in which arranged marriage is the norm. Truely though, being single in your thirties just gets more interesting. Happy birthday!
from battle-ramen :
Actually, I'm thinking of going back and doing the JET program, and if I don't get into that, maybe Aeon or Geo. Yeah, I've heard some sucky stories about Nova, so I'm going to try to avoid that one. So what got you interested in going to Japan in the first place?
from goovie :
ohhh, sarah harmer is so wonderful. i hope you bought a copy of you were here.
from ursaminor2 :
hey there thanks for the note! I'm sorry your date didn't turn out well. I have plenty of potentials for you here in Austin if you are ever in town. I seem to have single men coming out of my ears.
from waxpatriotic :
i think the NFL wives might go home this week only 'cuz they used the fast forward WAY too early. better tell miss-edith not to ruin TAR for you. :]
from zencelt :
Hey there! Very good to hear from you. Thanks for the congrats. I'd heard horror stories about Sprint's customer service, but I am sooo very pleased. Have a good one!
from snugbug69 :
Glad you enjoyed the quote. It's one I have had hanging in my bedroom for years. No, you don't know me. I stumbled on your diary a few days ago via a note you left in another diary I read. Not to make excuses for reading, but frankly you're interesting. Definately more real than 99% of the BS. I have not seriously written here for a long time - since I found myself writing to my readers rather than myself. Maybe I'll start again. Maybe I'll just write more about underwear (it's an inside joke, sorry). Sorry this is so long. -Em
from snugbug69 :
Na Carenza al bel cors avinen LADY ALAIS Lady Carenza, fair and comely, give your advice to us two sisters, and since you are the most discerning of all, advise me best you know how: Shall I marry a man of our acquaintance or shall I stay a virgin? That is my preference, for bearing sons does not seem good to me, and a husband in addition strikes me as very troublesome. LADY ISELDA Lady Carenza, I would be glad to take a husband, but bearing children I think is a great penance, for your breasts hang down low and your belly is heavy and burdensome. LADY CARENZA Lady Alais and Lady Iselda, I know you have learning, reputation and beauty, youth, fresh coloring, courtesy and virtue, and are more discerning than any: therefore I advise you, in order to sow good seed, to marry him who is crowned with Wisdom, by whom you will be fruitful of a glorious son; she who espouses him remains a virgin. Lady Alais and Lady Iselda, remember me within the shadow of his protection; when you are there (in the convent), beseech the Glorious One to keep me with you when I depart.
from goovie :
oh, young mark erelli is so swoonable. i'm sorry about the cliquey folk groupies; i've found that at the old town school, too, but i usually end up finding fun audience members to talk to, or bugging the artists. :) btw, i can't remember if i've asked you this, but have you thought about coming to frff this year?
from goovie :
whoohoo! more jewish boys for me!
from rhetoric- :
hey there! I dropped in and stayed a while. I enjoyed it. I notice we read many of the same diaries I think we share about 7 that we like, though only put the ones I read at least 3 times weekly on my favorites list. Just the same I can't beleive I didnt find you sooner. I am a 30 year old (geez @%&*! old) "free-lancer" in Austin. Nice to find one of my own. Take Care. Drop me a line at my public diary (this one is private)if you need some help on a new template. You can find me at ursaminor2
from goovie :
*hug* feel better!
from goovie :
eee! you're such a cutie! why didn't i know that before?
from duranfanatic :
Hey! You know, after reading your last note to me I realized something: you've written me a bunch and I haven't written any for you! Anyway, I'm not sure how many "fans" my pitiful little diary has, though I think you're definitely up there. But I do appreciate your friendship and support, and keep coming back! ;) *hugs*..."In the desert, you can remember your name, 'cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain..."
from goovie :
pippi, anne of green gables, or harriet the spy. great books for eight-year-old girls. i loved the all-of-a-kind family books, too. neal and gordon are always surprised when i know random stuff about jewish traditions, and it's because i read all those books hundreds of times. i think they're back in print, too.
from goovie :
that's *so* cool about volunteering at passim. do you know what shows you'll be working yet?
from goovie :
*hug* god, everyone i know has pms right now. that sucks. but lorazepam is good stuff. hooray for drugs!
from shadow19 :
Geez...just realized that you are from the Boston area. Did a stint out there myself, years ago (Holliston, Lynn, worked in Woburn, etc.) In that case, I've got to recommend that you check out Jess Klein. She was a college kid around here and played the local coffeehouse. Then she moved to Boston. Last year we stumbled onto her opening for Shawn Colvin in Albany. Great venue and excellent show. Somewhat addicted to her CD's and love the fact that she considers herself to have "an old soul." Think I might have one, too.
from shadow19 :
Cheryl Wheeler is the standard by which I judge all other acoustic performers. Probably not fair, but wow, no one can tell a story like Cheryl!! Also enjoy Patty Larkin, Vance Gilbert, and Susan Werner...to name a few.
from goovie :
well, if that job doesn't happen, i will be looking for new ways to waste time. so you may be able to lure me in. :)
from goovie :
yay, i'm so glad you're enjoying the mix. dvn are so fun, and sarah is crazy talented and one of the coolest people to ever come out of my college. :)
from goovie :
*jealousjealousjealous* that sounds like an amazing show. i haven't seen dar or the nields in way too long. you should totally volunteer for passim; i've always wanted to go there and to the iron horse. i start volunteering at the old town school of folk music in a few weeks, so i'm hoping i'll be able to make fun new folky friends here in chicago.
from goovie :
yay for muppet quotes and mix cds. which reminds me that i owe you a cd. start watching your mail. :)
from freeinjesus :
Hey, thanks for signing my guestbook. I'm glad I'm actually getting some readers! I like your writing, and I'm glad you had a good weekend in Boston. Drop me a line anytime--you seem like a person I'd like to know. :)
from goovie :
yay "funky ceili!"
from goovie :
*sniffle* i miss baltimore.
from goovie :
i was told once that i shouldn't be dating my boyfriend because i'm stealing his jewish sperm.
from goovie :
yay for boston! such an awesome city. best of luck. :)
from goovie :
bah. you're very exciting. :) and yay nields!
from short13 :
It is my pleasure! You have a wonderful diaryring! If you ever need any help please feel free to contact me.
from jessica58 :
*bows* Thank ya muchly. =p Know what holiday I'm dreading? Thanksgiving. I have to use browns, oranges and yellows *shivers*
from goovie :
congrats on your 100th entry! interesting entry about educational publishing..my ex-company must've been the exception to the rule -- not only were the majority of employees female, but all of the department heads were as well. there were only 5 male employees altogether (out of 60-something total). of course, the president was male...
from jessica58 :
Thanks so much for your note. She actually came home today which made all of us happy. One of the doctors are going to be in trouble for sending someone home while they're in the middle of having a mild heart attack.
from goovie :
oooh. free rachelliz cd? i would love one. and if you wanted, i'd send you a goovie tape in return. :)
from sourjane :
I'm a Kara Liz.. Does that count at all? lol.. I love reading diaries as much as I love writing in them (I've got 2, but one's a "secret" shhh..) It's so inspring and thought provoking! It's always good to know you're not alone and not the only one in the world going a little crazy, getting a little hurt, and feeling a little unloved.. Hope everyone has a wonderful and glorious day! Y'all deserve it *smiles*
from dramoth :
Thanks for taking my survey! I went back and retook it myself, so my answers make a little more sense. I think I was sugar-high when I made it and took it, which would explain the no-holds-barred attitude in it. Oops. Anyways, hope it was a thought provoker! Your answers were intriguing. =)
from honeywiggles :
Hey, for those who don't know, I was the one she was referring. And Rachel, I haven't really been nosy with you. I just didn't tell you I was reading your diary =) Ok.. so maybe I'm just nosy =P And my e-mail address is in my diary on the "contact me" part.
from heyitsrachel :
Hey this is Rachel. I added your diary to my favorites list. By the way, what does the "liz" in your name represent? Is that your middle name or anything? It would be really odd if it was, because my middle name is Elizabeth. So, i was just wondering. ~Rachel
