from myra-lee :
Thanks, nice lady! I wonder if we're near Buffy? Our landmark is the foot clinic with the happy foot/sad foot spinning sign. On one side, the foot is very sad, has red eyes, and is on crutches. On the other side, the foot is jumping for joy. The foot, himself, has legs and feet of his own. Anyway, I hope you had a super fantastico time in Costa Rica!
from myra-lee :
Because I found it super amusing, I read your Scabs Unite entry to Erik, and when I got to the part where Richard said "They can't," Erik said, "Boy, I sure do like that Richard."
from captainron :
BTW, that was sarcasm... They both should be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail... Gee I'm old...
from captainron :
Hay, you know I Love you but... Maybe they should take a page from the our sister state Massachusetts and just let him say he was sorry and let him stay in the house. That's what they did to Barney Frank (D)when he admitted to having sex with male pages... I guess emails are worse though, right?
from oh-sweet-pea :
yes, let logan fall into the thames, that would be perfect. i watched the season premiere with a very critical eye and i found too many faults. but i'll be watching again next week for sure.
from symbiotic :
freakin vincent!? it doesn't make sense. i loved allison too. she's just so cute. she looks like a doll.
from oh-sweet-pea :
i had wanted to send my congrats the other day but technology got in the way. and then today your guestbook made my entry disappear. regardless, congratulations on the dream job! i love that library and you being the teen librarian there rocks. whoooo!
from virginmary :
First, congrats on the new job! And second, I'm right with you on the Vincent/Alison wrongness. ARGH! I loved Alison. She makes one (major) misstep and is out? And yet Vinny-boy makes these weird, hideous things and they keep him? Are they afraid of him losing his mind and suing them if they cut him? Just ARGH again!
from myra-lee :
Also, I thought I signed your guestbook saying hooray for you and your new fancypants job!! (I can see that signmyguestbook ate the message.) That building looks so spectacular...the whole thing sounds like the ultimate dream job. You are super fantastico. Congrats!
from myra-lee :
Seriously, Vincent gets to stay? I thought Malan Breton was better crazy-person TV than Vincent. (Have you seen his web site, www.malanbreton.com?) I thought the judges were way too easy on Vincent. His dress wasn't "innovative"; it was a lot of trash attached to a paper tube, and it looked like it was made by a five-year-old. But maybe that's an insult to the five-year-olds of the world.
from readersguide :
Oh my god what perfect children ...
from cruznmazrati :
I WANT TO BE INVITED TO YOUR MEAT PARTY. LIVING WITH A VEGETARIAN IS STARTING TO GET TO ME!!!! MISS YOU!!!
from oh-sweet-pea :
i hear you about being boring from too much real estate. i find it encompassing my thoughts way too much! grrrr.
from samiam0341 :
Your fabulousity is undeniable.
from thebeesknees :
very cute! and i mean that in a positive way, not in the stomach-churning too cute to handle way that i might think when looking at others, or...i don't know, eyelet.
from captainron :
I don't think it is a sucky blog at all and still pop in every time you make a new entry...
from readersguide :
No offense. No offense at all.
from rumblelizard :
Collecting stamps doesn't give him the smug feeling of excercising his little tyrant powers over others. Wotta jerk.
from number9dream :
I somehow fell into your diary a couple of days ago... I'm lost somewhere in September of last year. I just wanted you to know that I'm reading and enjoying...I've actually laughed out loud many times! Thanks so much for sharing your live with all of us anonymous internet people, and keep up the great work!
from cruznmazrati :
Have I told you lately that I love you..(and Richard)...have I told you there is nothing else above you (and Richard)...You( and Richard) fill my heart with gladness...take away all my sadness...leave my troubled world..thats what you do...SUPERSONIC!!!!
from ikss :
SUCH a rockin costume! Those are my favorite Buffy episodes. :) Have fun.
from captainron :
Awww, I've been dumped. Story of my life. It's OK though, I'll still be here to read when ever you update. I'm a sucker for sexy librarians. :-)
from oh-sweet-pea :
oops, that was me who just signed your guestbook all nameless!
from badmj :
ha not having to think about contraception for 5 years! I reckon the pain is worth it!
from albygocougs :
can i just say that i always look forward to reading your entries? yes, yes i shall say it. i do so look forward. you are a fantastically brilliant writer. dare i say funny. quite funny. oh - i prefer to read about real dragons too, not those make-believe ones that there are so many books about. hehe.
from albygocougs :
in seattle (well, marysville actually) this week and its been cloudy then sunny now cloudy again. im amused by the fella who said the heat was stifling... clearly he's never spent a summer (or even a spring) in boston (or eastern washington for that matter). stifling, ha!
from mrs-roboto :
also you might wish to mention that this is a magical house - people move in in sin and leave all hitched up....
from mrs-roboto :
I'm so stealing your zuchinni to make bread.
from mrs-roboto :
You're so close to the end now....it won't be long till you'll be back to normal. Just hang in there and then we will all go get body wraps or something. P.S. I love the new image!
from samiam0341 :
I recently lost about 7 pounds due to running in the heat, apparently most of the fat was from my face. Now my lips don't seem to meet up at the corners of my mouth anymore, and drool tends to seep out towards my chin. It's really bad if I fall asleep at my desk. And I'm not a tard or into indie rock either. Woe is me.
from emeraldtiger :
Oops I tried to sign your guestbook but I don't think it went through, so... I often wear Clinique Happy. It smells nice but is still subtle and there's definitely nothing "old lady" about it.
from whereibegin :
Regarding perfume, I wear 212 by Carolina Herrera. I like it, and it's not too heavy or "old lady" for my taste. And it's different - no one knows what it is, but people like it. Miracle by Lancome is nice as well, but much more popular. Good luck finding your "signature scent."
from captainron :
Dearest Hayden, We'll take you when we ever we can get you. Some posts, no matter how randon, are better than none. Thanks Ron
from birdgyrl :
ohmigod! i LOVED BRITA!!!!! Brita was sooo nordic and beautiful and real. last night was a heartbreak!
from stardustcboy :
i thought roaches, like other insects, don't have a central nervous system like a human or other vertabrate. that their entire nervous system is their brain and it encompasses the full length and breadth of their body. thus, when a roach loses its head it continues to function because there isn't a brain to sever from the rest of the nervous system, the whole system is the brain. bugs are weird... ~B-)
from grlscout :
Ugh! I can't believe the realtor said that. Did your mother inquire as to whether she meant people who were born in India or aboriginal people? Ignoramus.
from mrgrey :
I decided to read a bit after taking your survey, but the navigation links on your layout don't work.
from ravynespeaks :
Just want to wish you a very Happy New Year. May 2005 be your best year ever!
from purplebanana :
Ha. I love that you've planned out The Kiss. I am officially planning to wing it, though I've got high hopes.
from captainron :
You don't need to give great gifts Hayden, knowing you is a gift. Merry Christmas Ron
from captainron :

from seamonsta :
I got no sticker. I am green with envy. Maybe because district #20 in Crooklyn is ghetto a bit. But I should at least get a bag of crack, u know?
from albygocougs :
so, i know you're going to think i'm nutz... but... i just finished writing about doing a tarot reading that says Kerry will win the election (the indicative card was the King of Cups), and saw what you wrote about your dream of Kerry. while i was looking up the meaning of the King of Cups i came across this "The King seems as though he would like to test the waters with his right foot but he is wearing greenish-yellowish leather slippers and he is not sure that he wants to soil them wet." at http://www.biddytarot.com/cups/kingcups.html. coincidence?
from albygocougs :
im gonna vote for the 2nd choice... the purple one. [although i know it will be green].
from heylee :
Hi~ Just wanted to say I love your diary layout! Hope you don't mind my tagging on to say I like the second choice better. It looks a little more dressy than the first, IMO. Don't worry about the 3 times a bridesmaid, never a bride thing. I am well on my way there then too! :D
from cinnamontree :
I like the second one better.
from fancyass :
Hey there....I've moved. Though I am pretty sad that I left diaryland...I think it was best for me to write somewhere else for now. fancyass.blogspot.com
from theshivers :
ps, i hope your parents are OK!!!
from astrekgirl :
oh wow, profession*. anyway, yeah, the movie was amazing. i really like your writing *(i've been reading...) - and the layout is nifty. kudos
from astrekgirl :
Hey. I stumbled upon your diary because I like the movie Before Sunset. I work at a library too, but it isn't my proffesion. Anyway, you're a good writer.
from cinnamontree :
They actually do sell kitty health insurance. Strangely enough.
from littlelloyd :
It would thrill me to know someone else who has written in to "I Anonymous". Was this you? http://www.thestranger.com/2004-07-15/ianon.html. Boy do I hope so....
from samiam0341 :
Hang in there, Hayden!
from captainron :
It's been a while, but Navy Pier down by the water was cool and the Excaliber night club use to be the best, three floors, three bands.
from itzie :
You know, I applied for a job at the Juvi center a few years ago. It seemed like it would have been an interesting place to work. Let me know if you get the job!
from captainron :
Gee, I can't imagine you turning down an invite like that. Classy guy, no?
from virginmary :
yes yes, i want to know why you used those two pictures of david hasselhoff!
from virginmary :
there's one of those women in every class/cohort. mine was a guy, though, although he self-identified as a "gay bear" or some such. i shudder thinking about him. (i actually dropped a couple of classes when i saw him in them the first day.)
from virginmary :
you said the BF word. heh heh.
from fussbudget :
Yay for your good news! I tried to sign your guestbook, but it was being cranky. Woohoo!
from myra-lee :
I agree re: trendy and annoying. It maketh me to think the shallow scenester Giovanni Ribisi character in Lost in Translation was probably based on Spike.
from virginmary :
oh happy rumor mill! you've got to love small towns. i grew up in one too. oh, and who teaches your class? is it eisenberg? because if it is, then how cool is it that we have had the same professors??? (ischools are incestuous that way - they all jump from one to another, and syracuse and UW are particularly bad that way.) anyway, that's all.
from cruznmazrati :
Give me a break, only a 3.9...come on dirtgirl!! Oh how are youth are slowly slipping through the cracks of perfection... whoas me whoas me!! Statistic: Increased amounts of sexual intercourse leads to decrease of .1 in GPA for 27% of librarians...(Reilly and Clienburg 2004, Journel of Guys who know their shit) could this be your reason?
from mrs-roboto :
I agree - you guys do look good together!
from nonce :
ahhh....okay. I think I get it. The motorcyclist comment is utterly beyond me. But I'm starting to think that motard is a fusion of "moron" and "retard"? Much more successful then trying to cross them the other way round..."reron"? :) Then again...
from nonce :
hi there, I like you diary....been checking it out lately. But I have to ask you...what is a "motard"? Could I get a definition on that?
from mrs-roboto :
Um yeah and that was all I got right. Oh well. Doesn't mean I don't care!
from the29th :
{I tried to say this in your guestbook but smg is being a turd.} Hey, Meryl Streep has SCREENWRITERS! And directors telling her to go bigger on the emotion or scale it back and they shoot lots of takes and pick the best and then they all go home and do whatever famous hollywood types do when they are at home. Deal with things however you see fit. You'll get where you need to be exactly when you need to be there, the way I often look at things. And bonus! Books and bed and being taken care of a bit, you know? You know we'll all be thinking of you and rooting for you and sending you good vibes and all that sort of thing. Just try and stop us.
from captainron :
I am so glad you are going to be OK. I'd miss you tons if you weren't around. Please take care OK?
from falo :
Hello RDG. I am so pleased that your surgery went well. Good stuff. Now you can get back to wowing your readers with your takes on ANTM!
from captainron :
Don't take the Afrin for more than 3 days or you'll have a hard time getting off the stuff. You get what is called rebound effect and get all plugged up again. It works great the first few days though... Hope you feel better soon :-)
from captainron :
Wll it could have been worse Hay... At least nobody got hurt, you got to meet Thor the Tower and seedy Tacoma has to be better than seedy N.O. right? Happy Tuesday and Dewey decimals for all!
from boxingnun :
i hear ya sista!...i thought i was the only one who didn't like radiohead....wow...we should join a club where we sit in the corner and talk about things that are pointedly not radiohead....
from myra-lee :
Oooh! You suck! I want a snow day. And beer.
from seamonsta :
awww I am sick too. Stuffy nose, sinuses, coughs, overall yuck. I hope you feel better. (germ-free hug)
from samiam0341 :
Well I thank Jesus you are cancer free, too! I'd freak the hell out if I had an un-authorized lump anywhere.
from snideblonde :
Holy SHIT! I guess I haven't read for a while now! Thank God you're all right, RDG! Did I ever give you my password and such? Username: snideblonde password: purple. I'm glad you're okay!
from vivakate :
good luck, i've been down a similar road before and i know how scary it is. xo
from ikss :
Hee. :) That is such a great news article. He's lucky they weren't on the Field Hockey team. Happy Halloween!
from myra-lee :
Aw, thanks for the note! I do love the thought of 20+ girls pummeling the perv. Why can't more news be like that? Emeraldtiger posted the link to extremepumpkins.com...I tried to mimic the Electrocution Pumpkin, but it didn't really work out. Mine was too cheerful to look like it was really being electrocuted. You have fun tonight, too! Are you stuffing?
from seamonsta :
Yes stuff it. stuff it good!
from birdgyrl :
yeah, i know i'm not *that* special. It's all for the story, really!
from stardwarf :
Me too! I had seen all of season 1 and none of season 2 and then season 3 came on and it was a huge dilemma if I should watch it. I broke down and DID watch it but I kept saying “How did he -----?” and “Where is -----?” and “Who the heck is that?” and “But what ever happened with -----?” and was all confused. Now {thanks to the miracle of I-Control, $6.95/month through Time Warner Cable} I have gotten to see about half of season 2. And most of my questions were answered on the last episode I got to see. {*The previous is not a paid endorsement of Time Warner Cable company or its services but is rather a poor attempt at humor. No affiliation intended or implied.}
from stardwarf :
Good god, honey, do you really think that? Your "Pollyanna attitude" as you say is one of the bright spots. That's why I love reading your diary. And I wouldn't call it a Pollyanna attitude by any means. You're great and I'd hug you if I could. Thanks.
from cruznmazrati :
How well I know my little melina and so many times I have related to what you speak, today is no different. Everytime I go home I battle with what life I could have had but you know what..wading in that water never could be done on a vespa....all thats important is that your loved anywhere you are and because of that you are at home here....
from raw-voice :
we'll miss you! make SURE that you find an eentsy-beentsy spot of time to update us on the next chapter of your life!
from raw-voice :
i knew it wasn't just me. of course, i've noticed myself justifying my choice to cohabitate rather than marry. i suppose we all have something to prove...
from wilder3 :
I'm Most Likely Wrong But The Lady On the Left, Looks An Awful Lot I Mean An Awful Lot Like Marguerite Hackworth. My late Grand Mother. She Also Was Of Some Repute Flapper wise But Along Came Billy Sunday An Billy Graham. My grand mother Grew up and Lived in the Midwest and Central CA.
from ikss :
I'm so happy for you, getting out of that place! :)
from seamonsta :
Or have dvr automatically record everything you want digitally and to know not to record the same episode twice turns me on in the biggest baddest way!
from captainron :
Lady, you are lots of things, but dumb is not even close to being one of them
from cinnamontree :
I think literature is important, but I don't think you can discount other fields of inquiry just like that. Maybe Richard Dawkins isn't Shakespeare, but that doesn't make him worthless.
from seamonsta :
I will put it on pause until you arrive :-)
from seamonsta :
Yeah it can get very embaressing once your deletion of them in the smellular has been found out! On another note: I was at a restaurant in NYC and the bathroom was one of those that had all sorts of crap written on. You know, Susie + Jenny, BFF. And what else was on the wall scribbled really big in thugish writing but RDG. I bet you secretly hang out at Malaysian restaurant bathrooms.

from leggyblond :
wear that new magic bra and i'll make all your dreams come true. (yeah right!) heh heh heh. how many times have you heard that one?
from cruznmazrati :
You know you only put that picture on your journel because you look HOT. Look at my dumb ass. I look like a monkey grooming himself. Thanks RDG. I put the pic of us at the airport as my background at work and everytime I see it I want to cry a tear of happiness. I really loved the trip. And I have a crush on you. Dont let anyone know though. After all I am your pretend boyfriend. Maybe I shouldnt let myself know. I get so confused when I think of you. Why do you have to be so hot. Why do you have to do this to my heart. Why cant I stop typing. Why is birds poop white but everyone elses and every other living things is a shade of brown. Why why. Why do I have to live in life not knowing why I have a crush on you or why the birds dont poo brown. Life is so complicated. By the way Adrianne is so in. Wait maybe Elise. They are definitely diking out tonight. RIGHT ON! LOVE ALWAYS CRUZN
from leggyblond :
getting a new note has the same kind of feeling as getting a new piece of post through the door -although it's smaller of course. but there's still a sense of thrill! so thank you for brightening my day... every little helps hahah. oh and seattle sounds great. jeffrey lewis has a song called seattle on his 'the last time i did acid i went insane' album. and that's well worth listening to!
from leggyblond :
i don't know why i stopped here but i did and i liked it so i might be back. i like your writing, but don't ask me why. just think "oh, that's nice", and have a look at my diary if you want. hmm, i even worked in a library once, but it was only a part-time job and a long time ago.
from battlestaar :
tattoo? yup they hurt like hell. ("is it done yet? ouch! shit!! oh please be done soon") Feels like someone cutting your skin with a serated knife. but the results are often worth it. the carnivore orchid sounds kinda cool too.
from toshchaya :
Happy random guestbook signing week! Your diary is a trip; I love it! Stop by mine if you get a chance. I want a tattoo too!!! :)
from vivakate :
whatev. that person in your gbook after me "contradicts" me. my tattoo is small, but it was impulsive. maybe not even that, i just wasn't in the right frame of mind at the time when i did it. it's black script and it's a single word (a nice word) and it's in the small of my back. i will get removed someday, in fact lately i have been thinking about just charging the treatment. be sure you want it on your body for the rest of your life, or that you would be willing to pay to have it removed. if you want to talk about it more, you can email me kate8748@hotmail.com.
from stardwarf :
Next time, I'll look to see if the guestbook secretly DID put my entry in despite it telling me that I couldn't "sign again that fast!" Yes. Anyway. I'm repetitive and stuff, all repetitive like.
from cruznmazrati :
Did I mention I enjoyed every moment of last night. Bob approves of your cooking. Koral better watch out!
from cruznmazrati :
Thanks. Your the best Harriett. You really are.

from unknown- :
It worries me that if right now I can look at myself 5 years ago and realize what a dingbat I was, just how bad will it be in 7 years looking down at my 20 year old self? wow.
from amishboy :
Your g-book is being stubborn so I thought I'd slip you a note - middle school-style. I went into the Matrix thinking it would be cruddy (yes, I used cruddy) and came out thinking it wasn't all that bad. It was all very "been there done that" but then towards the end I really started to get into it. I'd say from the architect on - so the last 20 mins maybe. They rocked. But you're right, 20 mins of cool matrix pales in comparison to 2 full hours of x-men. Well, gotta go to lunch but I'll write you again in 5th period study. BFF, K.I.T.!
from jseattle :
So instead of incessantly posting notes on your diary, i was wondering if you had any instant messaging at work... i'm jtiggerdjdk on aim, and I have msn and yahoo as well, if that's your preference. Wondering if you wanted to talk about the matrix or somethin ~ j
from jseattle :
You didn't like the movie?? Weirdness... I thought that it was entertaining - not as good as it could be, but still entertaining. And, just to let you know, I'm extremely jealous that you're going to sasquatch - enjoy it. And, if you have a chance, check out a cabaret music group called circus - my roommates a founding member. Have a blast!! ~ j
from jseattle :
took the survey... hope you enjoy
from jseattle :
Well... I've seen the movie already, but I was going to see it again anyway - so get back to me! I just stumbled along on your diary, and I must say i'm quite impressed by the effort that seems to go into it - I only hope that I can achieve your level of dedication (and so far i'm failing miserably... but that's ok, because i'm still new at this right?) Anyway - thanks for putting your diary out there, and maybe I'll hear from you soon..... ps... that band really does kick ass... you'll have to let me know when they're playing next.
from lizziepants :
thanks! it's so unbelieveable. really. read his diary. i feel like i'm about to explode.
from jtromm :
what the f is going on around here? i mean, i haven't seen a new diary entry from you OR cruznmazrati in days....weeks almost. i thought i made it clear that i have come to rely on these entries for both inspiration and a good laugh. so, step up to the plate why don't ya :)
from monkeybar :
The first one is still my vote.
from samiam0341 :
Never mind my last, if it's gotta be black, go with what gives you good karma.
from samiam0341 :
A white dress looks better with red hair, IMHO. That is, if you are a red head. But if you get mustard all over it, it might be hard to play it off.
from cruznmazrati :
The first one. Although anything will look great on you!
from crispystar :
the first one. i have one very similar to it from jcrew.
from miralogue :
oh signmyguestbook is being sooooo dumb today....i don't know your body shape but i really like the first one. that's the one i'd pick for me...either way you'll look hot. good choices; you can't really go wrong.
from vivakate :
the second one with the spaghetti straps. that's my vote.
from tater-fay :
Hee..I ALSO got rejected from the U of W's Library/Info Science graduate program...it's actually very competitive (I was surprised)...so tell your friend not to feel so bad!
from cruznmazrati :
I just want you to know your the best for no other reason than that you are. Have a wonderful day.
from cruznmazrati :
I dont understand your note? Will you please clarify.
from cruznmazrati :
Hey. Yeah I am still working the grand opening PART'E. The restaurant is still Toms for two more months. So game on for tonight. Tell Everyone you know...make sure Danny and Terry know as well. It is gonna be a blast!!!1
from seamonsta :
Birthday? Oi! Y Feliz Cumpleanos tambien.

LOL. You're telling me. Feliz Belated Cinco de Mayo, chica!

Oh and BTW...HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

'cause you're the shit.
from cruznmazrati :
Can I just say I have been laughing for the last five minutes since I read your journel today. Im still laughing. I love you Harriet your classic. Not that I didnt have soooooooooooooooooooooooooo much respect for you already, but my God you were Chuck E Cheese for God sake. That goes down in my celebrity name dropping book for sure. YOUR A STAR BABY, A STAR!

if only it were this easy: "I haven't had a lot of girlfriends yet but just teach me what to do and what not to do. please!"

Thanks dirt girl. YOU ARE THE COOLEST! You dont need to live through my experience yours will come. Its a matter of time. Enjoy your first day of May. Why dont you come in with Roboid, Danny, Tara, Kim whoever else into the bar tonight. Should be a good night.

I know that song! ("life is unfair, kill yourself or get over it") Black box recorder is it? Something-philosophy. Rock on.
from libboy :
I'm guessing that you're going to go to UW or something sometime soon. If so, congratulations, I have a few friends that went/go to library school there. I stumbled onto your diary and have neglected work at my own library here for 20 minutes, so, thanks for that because now it's time to leave!
from amishboy :
I just mean nothing awaits me in the form of free grandparent cast-off furniture and excess social security checks - 'tis all. I meant no harm. EVERYTHING else awaits me in seattle. The "great unknown" awaits and I for one am foaming at the mouth to see just what that is.

I'm so in love with Monkeybar's dog! I would get a weiner dog right now except that they are not really great for hiking with and I think Des would just spaz out and step on the poor thing.

I think it's possible to be spiritual and not religious. Maybe those people just don't buy into organized religion.
from tornadoali :
I loved your entry today! I, a lapsed Lutheran, will be going to church on Sunday with my still-Lutheran family, which I always do on holidays (which always makes me feel quite weird. Maybe because I'm "spiritual, but not religious." HA!) Not to be shameless self-promoter or anything, but I wrote a little bit about this in my next-to-latest entry:http://tornadoali.diaryland.com/Belief_quiz.html, if you're interested. God, I know that sounds really self-promote-y, but I don't mean for it to be, honest! Anyway, keep up the good blogging. :) T.A.

Electric Boogaloo is definately a catch-all title. I thought it fitting here, what with the amish - and electricity. It would be his electric dance of life!

ahem. CBC "was" our topic...
from monkeybar :
I thought of two more. BCC were our topic of conversation the other day, so that could be hilarious. (You could even wear a plaid shirt tomorrow) AND. What about a Munchkin voice? You have to sing it though in that shaky little voice like the one that sings, "We represent the lollipop guild, the lollipop.." HAHAHAHA
from monkeybar :
..since I'm on a Lily kick..why not go ahead and do Ernestine?

Okay..some of the ones I thought of were answering in an Irish or Scottish accent(your preference), Mary Poppins, your favorite Smurf, Edith Ann or Mork...I'll keep thinking.
from scifimagpie :
My fingers are crossed for you! Good luck!

Hey Harriet. Ok so I read your entry today and all I have to say is I HOPE YOU REALIZE NOW WHY I HAD TO LEAVE CAPITOL HILL. Being straight is hard in that area. I am true to the hill and I consider it my "home" in Seattle but my God. Well its not like I have been getting any in Queen Anne, but I know the ratio is much more in my favor. Miss seeing you.
from birdgyrl :
birdgyrl's so busy at work. next week i promise to be better. i'll probably have more interesting things to talk about by then as well. :)
from cruznmazrati :
Cha Bar is back on. Rally the troops and Please come in tonight for the Tuesday night happy hour night. Take advantage while I am still there.
from boxingnun :
you're too smart to be unpresentable--even to port drinkers....
from lrig :
i think you should take yr friend up on her offer. japanese beer, sushi, and potato-pants! those are the kind of nights you remember...
from birdgyrl :
fuck him. fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck him! who's too good for you? that's just plain lame. I say we make it WEEPY sushi night. I've got a few things I could cry about too! I plan on getting my neck and shoulders massaged at that place in Broadway market tonight. I'm hoping it'll open the flood gates. I need to get some shit out. I'd be honored if you'd join me, but I understand if weeping in public with your weeping friend doesn't sound like the best time. I heart you RDG.
from lrig :
im so glad you liked it! i was worried that i might have been breaking the 'no baby stories' rule...but i hoped that a story including a pee-pee and a potentially eaten fetus might be allowed. and it was! and that rules! . i know its not seattle, but im going to portland in june. to see 'yo la tengo'. and im terribly excited. that counts as northwest territory. so it makes it relevant somehow. ive never been north of san francisco. so im probably more excited than i can adequately explain.
from cruznmazrati :
You captured the description of a Northwest Spring day better than any other person in this world could have. Thanks for writing what I see. Hope you have a good weekend and I will see you when I get back. You and Roboid need to talk the Tues night crew into attacking CHA BAR next!
from amishboy :
H was a walking frat stereotype. Fancied himself a "playa", liked rap music, had hoards of girls in tow, and treated them all quite nastily. Which made them love him more, if you know the type. Hopefully single lettered names aren't a cause for such tendencies. I like the thought of the name T.
from amishboy :
I knew that Memphians(?) were fond of the dry-rub ribs, but I didn't know that it carried over to all things Q. Interesting. Thanks! Ever consider naming a boy Q? It's not too strange. I knew a guy in college whose given name was the letter H. Just "H". Except with Q, people will assume the child's parents are raging Star Trek fans.
from unknown- :
Ohh, you describe my undying love of books ever so well... (*)
from cruznmazrati :
Did I mention thank you for the part'e by the way. I had a great time minus the "red" remark. It was the alcohol talking I tell you it was promise. Sincerely, thank you I know you worked really hard and it turned out top notch. Birdgyrl didnt do half bad herself!
from cruznmazrati :
Thanks for the note. I say your QUIET! Do you take offense to that. I hope not after all I didnt to LOUD!!! Ping Pong Ping Pong Ping
from amishboy :
Maybe I'm getting Kurt confused with Ernst. I don't remember. BTW, ...your usage of "rucksack" - Priceless.
from amishboy :
Isn't it funny that in the end the real Von Trapps ended up running a family resort in the mountains of Vermont?...Vermont? Truth will always be stranger than fiction. Really though, how can you like Kurt? He was a Nazis traitor. Besides, he was seventeen going on eighteen, but preying after girls just sixteen going on seventeen - can't he even find a girl in his own class? Pa-shaw....which reminds me...Class of '94 rulz!! Seniorz!!
from happilyever :
"hair for radio" cracked me right up. Not like "hair for TV news" is much better...
from ammdancer1 :
in reply to "Gotta Dance!": the term for a male ballet dancer is usually 'danseur'. pretty boring, but hey, it works. by the way - i absolutely adore your writing and congradulations on making the librarian program (sorry, i'm not one for specifics)
from boxingnun :
congratulations!
from libraryvamp :
did you hear the interview with neko case on NPR this morning?
from seamonsta :
You've got to be shittin' me. I pulled that out of my ass! (excuse my french). Totally googling this now....
from seamonsta :
Whoa didn't mean to double it (purely browser error) but I can pretend like I am european and it's one per cheek...
from seamonsta :
Kisses back! ***********************************

Kisses back! ***********************************
from seamonsta :
Ok I feel like it's been monsoon season for however long those days were though they really felt like eternity and suddenly the sun came back out and everything is bright and beautiful again! God bless us, everyone!
from libraryvamp :
i'm glad you'll be back eventually. i really enjoy reading your diary!
from anticrew :
i saw neko case in concert a couple years back and she was super nice in person. usually, rNr stars are assholes....
from seamonsta :
Love that you switch the pictures to keep it interesting... miss you so much!
from swtapplpie :
thanks for the message for my dad :) love the new pic on your page too. you'll be missed on your break, cant wait til youre back...
from seamonsta :
Ohhh and your stuff would MAKE my magazine! I can see it already...everything printed on sandpaper...HoTTTTTT
from seamonsta :
It's really not horribly cheap. It is in gay guy standards. Those guys like to show off the bucks. shi shi bitches. I hate them though I really secretly am jealous.
from seamonsta :
I will miss you so much I won't know what to do with myself but I too took a 2 week break from d-land and came back refreshed. I think vacations are neccessary for every aspect of life. Do it. I hope you feel better!!! And don't be so harsh on yourself. You've made me smile many a times (when I was REALLY down) with your notes and to me, that's a pretty damned good friend.
from unknown- :
just another note saying just how happy reading your diary sometimes makes me. So RAR! towards you for your femmy actions, your adorable elvgren girl, and the simple honesty in your words. talk about yourself all you want in your diary. after all, its all about exibitionisam, isnt it? *is that a real word? and if it is, i spelled it wrong, didnt i?*
from amishgirl :
to answer you question from before...yes, there was usually some sort of imaginary line that could be used for further torture towards one another. many times, we tried to use a pillow to make an actual barrier. btw - i share in your interest of watching a makeover story. ty was cute already. he really didn't need the makeover
from lrig :
that part about the circumference of her legs and how its too bad cause they seemed really happy made me laugh SO HARD! you kill me, rdg. you kill me in the same way that pyrotechnics and aquanet killed the great white crew and their peeps. oy!
from seamonsta :
Ask Me Day- Do you have any diaryland crushes? If so, how many?
from amishboy :
BTW, the visual of you bent over and cramming the food in at plate-level gave my a hearty belly-laugh. Thanks for that!
from amishboy :
Buck-up trooper. I have a good feeling UW will work out for you! The name rdg is destined to be as revered as Dewy in librarial circles. Quick story: Where I lived in PA there is a horrid accent. The word Library was pronounced "Lie-berry". I can't pass one today without saying it incorrectly in my head.
from seamonsta :
Librarian in granny underoos. Oh sweet jesus. I need a cold shower.
from seamonsta :
I don't know if this makes me an obsessive reader, but I found the 100 things about rdg to be incredibly entertaining and addictive. I secretly wish we get a new 50 each day. There is so much more to know....for instance- toilet paper- over or under, handwriting- script or print, grandma undies- god no, sometimes, or all the time?
from amishboy :
It's not a soul patch. I'm not Theolonious Monk cool. It's more like, well, thinking hair - like Jesus had. BTW - you do a great Grover!
from seamonsta :
Wait, in case you missed it. Your note put an ear to ear smile on my face. Sorry if my sparkling teeth blinded you for a second!
from unknown- :
Aww! I love your diary, you are exactly the sort of person that infects Seattle and make me love it here ever so much... You keep writing, and I'll keep reading.

Hi! I've been enjoying your diary...I found out about you from ewenorker (who is no longer a diarylandist) when I asked for some suggestions of diaries to cruise. I'm so happy you have Anne of Green Gables on your profile! Yay! Anyway, just thought I'd let you know you have a new reader. Tornado Ali
from mrs-roboto :
Now I have also not signed your guestbook - AND I wrote 2002 - it's 2003. I'm not firing on all cylinders.
from battlestaar :
hey RDG - I've said this before, (don't hurt to butter you up some more) - but I really like your entries. almost wish you lived a little closer to WVa. take a chill pill and don't worry about others. (easy for me to say, eh?) take care of thyself primero and everything falls into place a bit easier. if you would be willing to hit me with an e-mail address I'd be honored to be your pen pal. (what an old fashioned description). Ed
from libraryvamp :
i love your pictures!!!!!!!!! the scooby gang rules.
from seamonsta :
Curiosity of the romance brewing between our Amish hero and lady Red brought me to your entries. Let me just tell you that you made the longest day at work so much shorter! Cheers- S
from amishboy :
I tallied up your survey responses...you have the makings of a fine wee amish lass! To further entice you - ALL quilting circles have a strict no-male policy. (except maybe that one all-male circle that gets odd looks from the rest of the community, because they've never wanted to grow the "marriage beard" and plow mini-catwalks in their corn where they display each season's new Amish look, even though it's french-blue EVERY season...)
from libraryvamp :
i agree. richard gere is NOT HOT. i find him UNHOT. give me johnny depp anyday. or daniel day lewis. i like those smoky men.
from amishboy :
You crack me up! And I do like the name Eleanor. She was my favorite chipmunk-ette on Alvin & the Chipmunks. Or was it Janette? Really though, Eleanor is my grandmother's name. Except she pronouces it real southern like, 'cause, well...she's real southern like. But she doesn't say it in a redneck accent, it's one of those old school "genteel" accents. She says, "Ellen-a". So,yes, I'm down with Ellen-a. ;)
from battlestaar :
Hey - my Lolita friend person is 17 1/2 ... what ur thoughts 'bout that?
from amishboy :
Gurl, I'm blowin' up your notes, yo! Seriously though - hmmmm, must be Rock Hill SC. My apologies to your friend...and condolences to you. He should try a few miles north, like Charlotte NC. Just try to focus on the good times you had together - they can never take that away...
from amishboy :
Thanks for the note! You should check out "A Peoples History of the U.S." by Zinn. It's the REAL story of the creation of these United States - the blood, sweat and tears of women and minorities.
from bmoviemaven :
a priceless entry. i am in awe of you.
from battlestaar :
you know RDG, I do so like your writings. just the right combination of understatement mixed with apropriate cynicism. yours just might be my favorite diary.
from thisisjohn :
Well. The term "fruit" is an inclusive one. For example, we say an apple is a fruit, but there is more there than just seeds. Rather the fruit is the part of the plant containing the ovaries. Which means the surrounding vegetative parts. This also means fruits are vegetables, because they are part of a vegetative plant, technically. I think if you use the seeds as an indicator, thats a good way to recognize the fruit of a plant. HOWEVER. Hybrid plants, like naval oranges dont have seeds. Sure they are a fruit, but by way of genetics, they are inviable, therefore considered a hybrid, because the technical definition of a hybrid, is a species that cannot reproduce on its own. :) In all honesty, Im really a dork.
from cinnamontree :
I love salads with fruit in them. Also with nuts.
from raw-voice :
the 'name' post about joe m is from me. sorry!
from rumblelizard :
I can email you the full text if you like, but I'm not sure if the email you have on your page is right....it looks kind of funky. Anyway, email me if you'd like to read it.
from battlestaar :
sounds like a bummer 31st. you have my utmost sympathy. working for scum lawyers must only be surpassed by working for politicians. allow me to suggest a major self-improvement resolution of getting a job where you are given some semblance of respect. you'll feel better at the end of the day.
from libraryvamp :
I am laughing my ass off about the sexual looking peanuts. When i lived in bloomington IL,(which was a sad and shabby affair) they copied the chicago cow thing too-- and had decorated corn cobs. that made for some disturbing public art that was either sexual, fecal, or stupid.
from monkeybar :
Adam is coming tomorrow? You need to call me.
from raw-voice :
dude - first it ate my guestbook message, then it refused to let me send in my other one. i hate guestbooks! anyway - i was just trying to sympathize with you on this whole boss shite. i deal with a jerk too, only she's a woman who only hires men and wound up with me as a fluke. may asswhole bosses everywhere burn!
from neko-carre :
Dude, this is even weirder... I'm in Washington too! Spokane! (No hissing, please.)
from neko-carre :
Welcome to the Girl-Alone diaryring! And oh my GOODNESS, you're cool! I knew I recognized your name from my girl Red-Wine's guestbook - and then to see that you're a fan of Neko Case (my d-land namesake, hee) AND have an Elvgren pin-up on your page... wooooow!

Tupperware is key, girl. In some countries (and/or South Dakota) it can be used as currency.

I think the trick is to tell everyone you want the vast wedding, get the money to arrange it, and then run off with the cash to Fiji...
from inkwell :
Um, I just went to read your diary (like I do every morning) and it was gone - sort of. Are you disappearing, or is this a technical problem? Hope everything is okay.
from habibi :
Libraries--excellent places, yes. But the new books on display at the bookstores are oh so enticing! Budgeting stinks. Oh to be a bahzillionaire...
from cinnamontree :
Thanks for the advice. Also, good luck on keeping real people out of your diaryland.
from cinnamontree :
Hi. I'm affiliated with University of Oregon, and I read your journal. And as far as I know, you do not know me. If that note was for me.
from cinnamontree :
Yeah, not entirely too pleasant. It never happened to me-- I haven't been anywhere tropical-- but I saw videotape footage of the bot fly in action. Pretty gruesome. As for the journal, I've been deleting entries after every couple days. I like to think people are constantly checking the internet for my newest entry-- refreshing their browser every ten seconds, waking up in the middle of the night and hoping for some new tidbit of my life. And for those people, I am deleting my entries. So that only a special few will have read all my entries. Also, I get tired of my old entries pretty fast.

Hey, I'm normally "A Sign My Guestbook" kind of girl but it was a more public forum than I am up for today. Wanted to know if you had any interest in joining an all girl book group? We plan to meet once a month at different members homes and have a discussion group. We're thinking of doing a food themed group where everybody brings a dish related to the book, etc. We're open to suggestion and welcome everyone so feel free to bring a friend. Dishery from D-land is a member and some other non-bloggers. Give me a holler if your interested.

re: taste in porn (from inkwell). Some porn tastes good, other porn tastes bad. I recommend removing it from the box or plastic bag first. <P> hugs
from misericordia :
Dear RDG, your guest book doesn't work so I'm leaving a note for you. 1. I'd like to know more about the porn of you talk about skeeving you out. It's kind of weird, but my major area of work is figuring out why stuff turns people on and why stuff skeeves people out. 2. Blue for you my friend. blue!
from symbiotic :
i prefer the second in blue. i've been a bridesmaid. the second could potentially be worn again or would be easier to sell than the first one.
from inkwell :
SignMyGuestbook was down again, and I had someting so clever to say: Isn't "taste in porn" an oxymoron?
from boxingnun :
holy crap! there are enough women's studies books in your library to warrant a whole special librarian to keep track of them?! that's amazing and laudable on the part of your university employer....:-)

yeah themes are cool....there were these guys that went from new york to houston all on "second hand goods"(from used car auctions, ebay, resale stores, garage sales, etc) and they documented it all on film and showed it at a local filmhouse in houston when they arrived....it was called "superannuate" or something like that....i suggest you look into doing a "revisionist history" tour and looking up who lived in the states that you're passing through before the USgov took over and visiting the spanish capitals and native-indian holy grounds, etc for each region.....

i enjoy the "wank wank" ending bit of the translation most....i'd write a longer note but i have to go fire-bomb a few non-union, pro-life, NRA nationalists....;-0

from asteroidbelt :
i meant to write earlier and clarify that the corn sisters are actually neko case and carolyn mark. carolyn mark solo stuff is also amazing. very wanda jackson-esque.
from asteroidbelt :
yay! i'm glad i read yer diary after filling out yer survey. i think i need to read it everyday now. and i love that you like neko case. have you heard her in the corn sisters? amazing!

hey my grandmother in dallas used to call those big roaches "water bugs." once when i was a kid, i saw a big fat mama roach in the tub right before i was about to take a bath and i *freaked* out and she said something like "ay christopher, it's only a water bug" and then she picked it up with her fingers and calmly took it outside....she was either totally delusional or psychologically impervious.....
