Congratulations on your engagement! You deserve it. :)
from robotheart :
LOVE YOU AND LOVE THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE! yay. cant wait to see pics of your nuptial awesomeness...and greece? SO JEALOUS. will you be there at the same time as sunday? that would rock, no?
from neko-carre :
Ohmygah. SO happy for you! I choked up on my wine reading your entry. And ya know? When it's good, don't question it. You paid your dues, things happen for a reason, you deserve it, and other sayings. A good match is truly a blessing. Some of us are just sublimely lucky and we know it. Drink it in, friend. It only gets better.
from sundaygirl :
oh man I don't know about you but I don't want to be 40 and pregnant. It was exhausting enough at 32! PS I have some gossip! EMAIL ME!!!
from dejour :
happy happy! sorry about the tennis courts, but... you might get used to it. My mr used to live right next to the El station; trains coming, stopping, announcements, and leaving all day and night and somehow, we got used to it. Then again, I never got used to my old neighbors who would skateboard maybe? in the house. (do the courts at least close at a decent hour? that might be a compromise the landlord would be willing to make)
from neko-carre :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAREST! I'm so glad to hear the shack-up is happy! But I'm with you on the ceiling noise. Oh my god, I can't STAND that. You may recall my endless rants about the toddler that lived in the apt above us with a wafer-thin floor/ceiling. It was so awful. I couldn't even relax in my own home. It just raised my blood pressure every day. Dave & I got into a few tiffs about that too. It didn't bother him as much as it did me - although somedays even he admitted it was too much. Ugh, I feel your pain. And I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle. :-(
from neko-carre :
RE: Your Sept 11 entry and the reading of the names. Dave & I were there for the 3rd anniversary. I'll never forget one woman - I can still hear it in my head - as she read names and then got to her family member. She had a beautiful Spanish accent. She said "And my son...*sob* [his name]." The pause & sob was soooo heartwrenching and beautiful somehow. I'll never forget it.
from robotheart :
email me your email address? i switched computers and lost a bunch...beckstar (at) distantbeat (dot) com
from neko-carre :
Ruby, you said it. You're just bored with the subject matter. You have been for a long time. Not that it means your writing sucks or you deserve to be publicly bashed - that was wrong. But in no way does one criticized piece make you a bad writer! Maybe it's time to see what other topics you could write about. Renew your interest a bit. And if not, like you said, it's just a job. It's not who you ARE.
from sundaygirl :
oh my god, YES! I JUST sent out an email about the printer without seeing your comment. If you want it, it's yours.
from neko-carre :
Major CONGRATS on the 20! That *is* a lot and you probably look more different (to others) than you think. You motivate me.
from robotheart :
what about upping your exercise? congrats on the weightloss so far. i cant wait to join ff when i have this baby...
from dejour :
First-- I'm a little jealous that you got to go back to Mujeres! I was hoping to take the BF there this year... hopefully we can still sneak it in. And my sister let me know that the facelift at the hotel is great and that there's no night club. Phew! Second--curtain for a bathroom door made me laugh. That's how our place was in PR. I had to ask him to step onto the porch a couple of times so I could use it. Thankfully I knew it was a curtain before we arrived... it was still a little awkward though. glad you had a great trip!
from neko-carre :
Man, I hear ya! I totally don't buy into that Kate Moss Weight Loss Chart. In the 90's, it took Phen-Fen to get me down to my supposed "healthy" weight and I stopped having my friggin' periods. When I was on WW two years ago and got down to a weight that *I* liked, I looked and felt great (& even thin) - even though it was a BITCH to maintain. I'd like to get there again, but I'm sure as hell not going to mold myself into some unrealistic cookie-cutter guide. If you know you look good and you feel good, you ARE good. You'll know when it's time to cut back (for me it's puffy face & boobs - like now). Otherwise, don't kill yourself - live life!
from robotheart :
not sure if you sent it, my spam filter should bounce at a hot la club its so picky, but i remembered!!! and i just wanted to tell you that im sure you look amazing and to have TONS OF FUN in mexico!!! so happy you're happy w/ the boy!
from robotheart :
plz resend your pw...i have my email below...i ended up getting a new computer and my laptop consequently died for ever...and well, my memory is bad.
from neko-carre :
WW was fantastic for me. It's true: follow the program and it WORKS. Two years ago I lost 30 pounds (along with the treadmill). Got off WW - gained almost all of it back. Trying to do it again w/o joining, but as ol' Yoda says, "No try - do or do not." Harder to do without going to meetings. Thought I'd hate 'em, but they were way more helpful than I expected. Good luck to both of us! I'm so much prettier when I'm thinner. ;-)
from hungryghost :
I also no longer partake of my once twice-weekly ritual of drinking pint after pint at HiFi and then loading up on Guaco Locos. And for that, I'm now 15 pounds heavier. Augh.
from allmadhere :
I've heard (but haven't tried it) that you can approximate mashed potatoes with mashed cauliflower. I also agree that the good thing about WW is it does make you measure your food and realize what you eat. At first, I even enjoyed the points--it was like trying to beat a video game. How much food could I eat while still making my points? Bah, I really should go back on it and lose my 30 extra pounds! Perhaps you will inspire me.
from allmadhere :
I did WW and it worked, but then I gained it all back. My advice: Find normal food you can eat and like forever that is within the points range. I ate a ton of really shitty frozen food. Yeah, I lost weight but I can't maintain it b/c I just can't eat that junk anymore.
from sundaygirl :
"Anybody? No? Dust. Anybody? No? Dust." I'm with you, sister. I've become so boring ever since I started counting calories. God. Who am I?
from robotheart :
dude, i reformatted my drive and i cant remember your whole un/pw...can you email it to me? [email protected]
from allmadhere :
Happy birthday! I'm glad you're back in NY and you sound happy.
from robotheart :
happy birthday, you old bag! im soooo jealous of the new imac...i want one! i got an iphone, tho, so i spoze thats well and good. feel better, sugar!
from neko-carre :
I'm so glad you're back! You sound wonderfully happy, Ruby.
from neko-carre :
You're back in NYC?! Update already!
from allmadhere :
Haha, oh thank you for admitting to random peeing in the city. I did that during my NYC trip b/c I had drank 3 or 4 beers, the frickin' train wouldn't come and it was 1am and nothing was open. So somewhere, in Manhattan, is my pee stain.
from hungryghost :
Thanks! That's the kind of anecdotal evidence that does me good. Happy almost-homecoming.
from neko-carre :
Yes! Sounds like everythin's comin' up Ruby! I'm so glad you're coming home! And I "knew" with Dave too. :-)
from hungryghost :
Please explain to me how you can write three (3!) articles in one day, while getting your boiler fixed and etc. You are my hero.
from sundaygirl :
i give myself permission to send you my placenta if it's a horrible experience. jk. omg, you're gonna be an Auntie 'Nun!
from allmadhere :
I lost your login/password because a customer service moron convinced me to delete all my browser info. Argh! Would you mind emailing it to me? faunafrailty at gmail Thanks!!
from sundaygirl :
oooh, excellent topic!! Isn't it amazing how crazily we pined over some of those shitmitts? I feel like I don't have a One That Got Away, either. Scud missiles: DODGED, handily.
from hungryghost :
Having been to Thailand twice, I feel like I should have warned you about all this crap. There are totally great beaches/islands with hardly anyone on them. But it's impossible to avoid the holidaying Brit pandemic totally, and it sounds like you made some great choices - the Bangkok hotel sounds so awesome!
from sundaygirl :
Thailand does not scream "relaxing beach vacation" to me ... holy hell.
from allmadhere :
Congrats on new love. :) You DESERVE it, Paris sex and all!
from robotheart :
sex in paris...im SO JEALOUS.
from sundaygirl :
i better get crackin on a new layout for you. can you believe it's almost time?
from dejour :
shoot, I left you a message yesterday, but it didn't take. Anyway-- I say not cheating, too. You guys aren't exclusive, which is key. Don't tell him about though b/c you feel bad or want to use it as an example of "I don't know where we stand and this happened". No one ever really likes knowing their partners bedroom romps before they got together... especially if they *knew* the person when the romp happened. So, don't feel guilty about it. Let it be your last hurrah. Remind yourself that you guys aren't yet exclusive, so it's OK.
from sundaygirl :
totally. not. cheating. in fact, do whatever you want until you're back in new york. and no, don't ask him to be "exclusive" right now because long distance relationships are FOR THE BIRDS and will drive you BANANAS for the next four months. Save yourself the drama! There's plenty of time when you get back.
from robotheart :
i. just. effing. KNEW IT. yaaaaaaaaaaaay!
from sundaygirl :
your grouchiness had better be gone by the 19th, woman. i will not stand for it! :)
from neko-carre :
Pff, I hate that I too have exes with VERY common names that I can't find in Google! One of them turns into a 21-year old kid with a police record, and another turns into a doctor (*snort* yeah, right!). 'Course, then I go and marry one with THE most common name ever... which is on the Do Not Fly list every time we take a trip. Great. Anyway, hope you're feeling better.
from robotheart :
1. my grandma says oogly...and its all drawn out and MEAN...and in reference to attitude. 2. the brits would love some fried steak and mashed potatoes w/ gravy. give it to them. 3. baked beans on mashed potatoes is good.
from gretl :
oh hell bikram is HARD but so detoxifying & wonderful. the closest I ever came to touching my toes was after a bikram class. nice job!
from hungryghost :
You'll hatch the perfect escape plot before too long. Hang in.
from sundaygirl :
i also realize that i should have titled that entry: "well, it wouldn't be the first time i had a little penis inside me."
from sundaygirl :
the one dresser we have is too tall. also, where am i going to put the ASSLOAD of clothes my mother is buying for this child? May as well get one! they're pretty cheap.
from sundaygirl :
let me just tell you it is a real good thing you and Rooster Boy never became an item because oh my god.
from hungryghost :
Holy crap. You ate AND COOKED in Gordon Ramsay's kitchen. And he didn't spend the night calling anyone a f*cking donkey, or anything. Le jealous.
from neko-carre :
Oh my god, did you get some leftovers to go? Will you send 'em to me please?
from robotheart :
i was just speaking to lucas about how awesome purple looks on us redheads...pics or it didnt happen.
from sundaygirl :
they're stupidly called "vampire weekend" and i caught the video while randomly flipping by MTV2 last night. PS, i think you might benefit from all the breathing yoga has to offer.
from sundaygirl :
yay i love epic updates
from robotheart :
xo. much love. happy new year....so sad to have missed your california appearance. hope to see you again someday soon.
from achren :
i have some serious travel envy.
from sundaygirl :
i'd give my left tit for some champagne right about now! also, mmmm...canapes.
from gretl :
forever & always I feel your pain re: offensive fashion choices. shooties need to stop. they give the same unflattering cankle look that uggs do. barf.
from sundaygirl :
WOMAN. I know.
from neko-carre :
God. I know all about the upstairs techno neighbors. We had them in my last apartment and it SUCKED BALLS! (I called them "The Frats" in my diary.) They actually *did* have a "recording studio" in this place. Assholes. But nothing was as bad as the Toddler. Compared to that Two-Foot Anti-Christ, I'd take the techno any day. Inconsiderate neighbors are among the Top Five Worst Things in Life, no matter what the noise is. I'm sorry you're having to deal with it.
from sundaygirl :
London and LA should GET MARRIED. xoxo.
from sundaygirl :
when she came up here to parade around her "cleverness" I sat stone-faced and refused to look at her. It's SO WAGONHALTY.
from dharmabum :
birthday expectations are hard -- i have them all too often and then get disappointed. but i'm glad you had a little celebration that was fun even if not exactly what you hoped for ... and hope things look up soon :)
from sundaygirl :
we should buy a place together, you, me & ryan. a 5 bedroom bastard of a house. and never ever ever ever EVER leave new york EVER again. When we get back to our beloved NYC, we should have a ceremony and get married to it. i will kiss the ground at JFK.
from sundaygirl :
you know i still love you to pieces even though we're 5,000 miles apart. my visit is going to be kickass.
from allmadhere :
Aw, hon, I know it was horrible but there are people out there who love you. Happy birthday. Next year's will just have to be super kickass to make up for it.
from sidewaysrain :
happy birthday anyway! i'm sorry. birthdays away from your peeps suck the big crumpet.
from robotheart :
i want you to have a happy birthday regardless of the guff...you are a better friend than them...duh! lay on the guilt and get a make up drink or something...
from hungryghost :
Hey! I miss reading you. It's been ages. I stupidly never asked, but if you're so inclined, p-word me? bookeating at gmail.com (I've killed the other email account, unfortunately, the one with your address in it.)
from allmadhere :
It's not really a password--I think you just have to get an LJ account and then friend me. I just write all my entries "friends only." My name on there is 100indecisions.
from babygirl3333 :
Hi Rubyfoxx. is there any way I could get the password to read you. I miss your writing sooo much. thanks
from sky-rocket :
password, please? i used to read you ages ago, before it was locked. [email protected] if you so choose!
from neko-carre :
Dave here.....mmmmmmm scotch eggs. we have a pub here that makes those. i would eat them every day, but i want to see 45. word!

from neko-carre :
Hm, Arcade Fire & Wilco... Are Beastie Boys & Bad Brains & Polyphonic Spree at this festival too? Cuz if so, that was the Sasquatch Festival over here in WA State. Fantastic three-day concert that Dave goes to (but I don't, because I love not camping). I'm so glad to hear things are looking up, darlin!
from sundaygirl :
awww, muffins! thank you. xoxoxoxo. i love you
from neko-carre :
I know this is cliche, but... make a change. A big change. Like, quit your job and move back to New York. I know - easier said than done, right? But you can't possibly be any unhappier than you are now. A change can only be fresh, new, positive - even if you end up broke - hell, being broke & happy is better than being well-employed & miserable. You had some amazing experiences since you've lived over there; be proud that you had them, but now be done. Make the change, be unhappy no longer, and come home. (Sorry for the unsolicited advice. I just hate to see you like this, my friend.)
from neko-carre :
Hey, darling! Thanks for the note. I know things are really good. I just feel so freaking... *stupid*... even though I know I'm not. Time to drink. A LOT. As for you getting some Girl Alone Time tonight, indulge in it, more than you normally would. Is stuff still open? Go shopping - splurge (lord knows you've earned it!). Buy a nice, guilty-pleasure novel and go to a classy joint and read it with a couple glasses of wine. Maybe you'll meet someone there, maybe you won't. Then buy another couple bottles of wine or some cocktail fixins, and head home, take a bubble bath, watch some chick flicks and/or porn, play your favorite music, make long distance drunk-dial phone calls, and write in your journal. Tomorrow will start all over, and I bet tomorrow night or next weekend you'll have tons of party adventures to tell us.
from fussbudget :
fabulous miss ruby, i keep forgetting that i don't have your password (and to ask you for it), if you're willing to give it up, e-mail me through the diaryland. i miss you, missy! h.
from swanbenet :
You said it, sister. I think we should plan a kamikazee (sp?) visit in August.
from robotheart :
los angeles is big enough for the two of you...do they have h3dge funds in la? also, whats a h3dge fund?
from swanbenet :
I believe my American friend is either back in London or will be there shortly. He travels there a lot on bidneth, yo. He does something for Abercrombie & Fitch but I'm not sure what exactly. Obviously, it involves a lot of travel, but outside of that, I'm clueless. email your contact info to me at [email protected] and I'll pass your info along to him. Cool?
from idiomatic :
ha ha, speaking of slang (see "sick"): http://ypulse.com/archives/2007/03/omg_teen_slang.php
from idiomatic :
nice to hear your having a (relatively) good time. but also, isn't "that's sick!" a compliment? sort of like "that's hot" pre-PH?
from sidewaysrain :
e-burgh is the greatest. a lively arts scene in glasgow too. the rivalry betwen the two cities cracks me up. if you get back there try to go to Club Bongo sometime - they have weird acts and it's just a cool place.
from neko-carre :
They don't say "like" in the UK? Granted, I figured it was a generation thing, and it seriously makes one sound like an idiot, but I wasn't sure if people in other countries used it in the same manner as we do. I try EXTREMELY hard not to use it when I'm speaking to someone professionally - and then it totally comes right out because I'm focusing so hard on *not* saying it. Of course, "totally" is another one. I like, totally use that all the time. ;-) I blame it on being born and raised on the West Coast (even though I can't truly blame it on that because I'm not technically West Coast. More Inland Northwest.) Whatev.
from sundaygirl :
APRIL 20. I am set free upon this tragic country!!! HUZZAH!
from idiomatic :
the "i (texas) ny" in the background is a nice touch.
from neko-carre :
Rubes! May I have your username & pw again? I switched computers and lost it. Either reply to my MySpace or email it to me at Qkari AT yahoo DOT com.
from sidewaysrain :
you poor thing! you deserve a two year span of no illnesses, colds, flu, etc. whatsoever.
from swanbenet :
Damn, I was checking in with you to see if I could give your email address to a friend of mine who's in London on business. I figured maybe you'd want to meet him for a drink because he's single, cute, heterosexual and funny as all hell. But at least you have internet access from a hospital, which is something good, right?
from robotheart :
good god, girl. i pray for hot doctors or nurses and a speedy recovery.
from dharmabum :
poor girl! feel better soon, please!! xo
from idiomatic :
"pulling a hot German" = handjob w kraut?
from swanbenet :
Oh lady, I'm sorry you're having a tough time these days. We should meet at the halfway point between Vremont and London & have dinner or something.
from res-gestae :
hey! Uhh, i forget the password and whatnot. It's been a while - vfirnhaberbaker at gmail. xo
from robotheart :
i wonder if there are any american therapists out there you can find...someone you can vent to on the regular...get a stress ball or take up knitting...keep your hands busy during times of stress.
from idiomatic :
well, if you're on the one-year plan, you're almost half-done there, right? almost? sorry you're having such a scuzzy time there, it's a shame.
from robotheart :
come to california...
from robotheart :
very cute! my old dress had that lovely double tiered skirt action...and i think it was bias cut too...you're going to look stunning. i can just see it. slay them!
from robotheart :
i just realized that my eighth grade graduation dress is exactly like the one kelly lebrock wore to the bar in weird science...all fuscia and metallic with a giant bow on the hip...i cant imagine yours looks like that. does it?! in any case, pictures.
from sundaygirl :
I may be funny but you are the tits, my muffintop. i'm sorry about your nasty travel mishap. What a drag.
from robotheart :
i have noticed that brits are notoriously bigoted...wait'll you hear the other slurs...chalkie? n bombs left and right...its amazing.
from swanbenet :
It's rare that someone gets to use the word "Dusseldorf" in a sentence. See? 2007 is already off to a smashing start.
from res-gestae :
i came crawling back, just like we all knew i would.
from robotheart :
oh. my. god. i swear i came here expecting to read EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE...fuck. safe travels home, r.f. im sorry fakeboyfriend isnt more daring.
from sundaygirl :
i fixed some stuff and added some stuff! look at your cute widdle widdle new web page icon! isn't it just darling!
from robotheart :
knees up is a good time. like you're dancing a little jig. sorted is 'taken care of' pretty much. i like how they say shit that rhymes with the thing they're talking about. its taken me forever to get that...like a phone is the dog and bone, and the check (as in at the end of the meal) is a 'gregory peck', or indian food is a 'ruby' named after some actress or something who played some indian chick in a movie...and so on. its very confusing...have SO MUCH FUN on your vacay, baby.
from sidewaysrain :
aw, and british painkillers are like baby aspirin. hope you have a stash of advil and that you feel better soon.
from tcklyrpharsn :
password? pretty please?
from robotheart :
well ennui means boredom. so i would say...bored. but you're the writer. 25000 words, good heavens. get some vitamins. and some meth. i hear that works. :) im way proud of you, you know. and jealous, even. thats big balls to be out there like that...im such a pansy, i never do anything all by myself. and look, you did it twice (that i know of); moving to the Big City, i mean.
from idiomatic :
i think you're getting used to your new bio-environment. try eating the healthiest you can, sprinkled with a little meth. should snap you right out of it.
from neko-carre :
Heh. Men named "Guy." Next you'll be writing about your friend Nigel, and I'll totally know you're in England.
from dharmabum :
i have totally been thinking about this a lot lately. how can one Do it All? i guess you just do want you can ... and don't have kids until you are fabulously and independently wealthy and don't have to work. or something.
from robotheart :
ok. apparently i own your notes section...anyways, english chicks are a bit stand offish, eh? it takes a bit to warm up. but you have that wry sarcasm that will fit in just fine once you're in there.
from robotheart :
sounds like a prime weekend if ive ever heard it. and [email protected]! that must have been a wicked match. its my boss' home club.
from robotheart :
smg can suck a goat dick. thank you SO MUCH for that link...im starting to realize that going to detroit isnt that cool...but at least it will be fun to see the fam. hope your booting mad arse in london, darlin...im surrounded by those wankers day in and out over here as well. i even understand what the hell they're saying...sigh. keep your chin up and you'll adjust. its another country for chrissakes. if you adjusted to new york after growing up in texas, you can do anything.
