I chart my cycle to avoid pregnancy. Good luck! I'm happy to answer any questions that you may have! I'd recommend getting your hands on a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility if you haven't already :)
from dangerspouse :
"Siggy Stardust"! YES!
from whystinger :
Running for 15 minutes without stopping is a big deal. I can run further now than I could in high school and I am a hell of a lot older than high school. Don't worry if you need to stop or slow to a walk occasionally. I run best when I can run a minimum of three times a week. If I run every other day and walk in between, I do really well. You should be very happy about what you have accomplished, it is very good!

What if you eat them slowly?
from whystinger :
Woo hoo! Happy for you!
from nikkifoofoo :
Hi, long time reader, first time note-leaver. I'm noticing a trend here of you doubting your intuition. Something is telling you that things aren't right and you're quick to dismiss and then blame yourself. If your instincts are telling you something isn't right... Something isn't right.
from elberry :
We INFPs are a rather small percentage of people. 2% I think but some say a little more. I was at a Myers-Briggs meeting one time with 20 pastors, all but one was an INFP...makes you think....searchers of deep wisdom most of the world will never fathom? Should we even try? What types balance us?
from swordfern :
I've been reading (lurking) you for a while now and am so happy to see you in a relationship with someone who truly appreciates you. In regards to doubts... try not to doubt!!! He probably likes you because you are different from him, and that's interesting, and you can learn a lot from each other. Try not to doubt it - the funny thing about doubts is that the more that you think them the more likely they are to play out in reality. Because you sort of create the story that you've made in your head, and you make decisions/actions to support your belief, which results in the outcome that you pessimistically expected to happen. It's hard to explain. It's like this: a girl thinks guys don't like her due to her large nose. So she asks her guy if he likes her nose, and he says, "Yes!". And then she asks him again, and again, and then her lack of confidence becomes unattractive so the guy dumps her, and then she sits there and cries, "See, I told you. He didn't like me because of my nose." Anyhow... Hi! I wish you all the best! He sounds like a truly wonderful man :)
from stepfordtart :
Yikes! I hope you get sorted soon, dear! s x
from stepfordtart :
either 'so sweet' or he thinks your feet are vile! Heehee, just kidding - Im just jealous cos L never sends me groupons. Never sends me anything much - just texts reminding me to get some bread. Or milk. Or telling me he's loaded the dishwasher :-/ s xx
from stepfordtart :
Woop woop! *fanfare plays. very loudly* s xx
from stepfordtart :
Im torn between "YIKES! He read your diary!" and "Aww, he's your BF". He sounds like a nice guy, actually, and your cyber mama approves :-) s x
from princesscee :
I understand the violation part. I felt the same way when my husband found mine. However, now I think of it as a way to communicate with him sometimes, though he no longer reads it. Your diary is your real self, and if you want to be with someone, then they should know your real self. I'm glad things are going well for you!
from stepfordtart :
omifuckinggod! Just came over here to see how you were getting along and its seems like youre doing JUST FINE, girl! WooHoooooooooooo <3 :-) I am a happy cyber-mama today! s x PS We dont have Forever 21 here but I know of it, and it sucks.
from stepfordtart :
Im glad you got the chance to clear the air a bit - I know it was hurtful for you but its done now. Im sure youll still feel a bit crappy for a while yet but I do hope you hang on in there for something better. *thinking of you* s x
from stepfordtart :
You know what? I went back through some of the notes I'd sent you over the years and Ive got to say, that TJ is a bit of an asshat. He really does treat you very very badly....and doesnt seem to have any compunction about doing so. He's a big meany and you can do better. s x
from stepfordtart :
Hey hey. Unless training/being a teacher is very different where you are, to training/being a teacher here, DO NOT do this unless you actually really want to be a teacher. You MUST either really love children or really love your subject - the job is extraordinarily tough, as is the training. Its a brilliant job but very little of it actually takes place between 9 and 3. I love it and loath it in equal measures. Think carefully before committing. :-) s x
from stepfordtart :
No you're not. If you were a terrible person you would have kept her, even though you couldnt look after her the way she needed. s x
from stepfordtart :
Thank you! Its actually navy blue and white - some friends made me buy it and I wasnt really sure about it but the couple of times Ive worn it Ive got compliments :-) s x
from jen5986 :
randomly stumbled across your diary...how do I find people who are dealing with the same issues so randomly! good luck. Love your honesty.
from dangerspouse :
Yeah, crock pot chicken can be pretty bland. It's certainly never going to crisp up and form those complex flavors, like in baking. You can compensate a bit by browning the bird first in another pan...but that kinda negates the point of a crockpot "One Pot Meal". My favorite chicken dishes cooked this way (I use dutch ovens, but same process) are ones where I segment the bird into pieces and cook them in relatively thick flavor "pastes". For instance, a mix of apricot jam, thyme and onions. Or Korean chili and black bean pastes. Stuff like that. Spooned over rice, it's much more satisfying than a whole wet-cooked bird. (ps. if you're feeling guilty about eating cookies, mail them to me and I'll dispose of them responsibly. You're welcome.)

I cant do a cartwheel. either, but I can deffo punch my way out of a sticky situation. Cant say Ive never not known what to do when I was mounted on someone, but there are times when I shouldve wriggled free and didnt....oh, wait....wree you talking about wrestling, there? Oops. My bad! s x
from dangerspouse :
Humph to Artist! Humph, humph, I say! Nothing like a little extra bile to make the clock REALLY slow to a crawl, huh? Lol...thanks for the note at my place. Glad my wife's culinary eccentricity was able to distract you from your tedium, if only for a moment :)
from dangerspouse :
Well, good for you! Raspberry wine does it every time. I hope this one's not a disappointment when all is said and done :)
from dangerspouse :
Let that be a lesson to you: NO guy who wears salmon shorts can get an erection. That's a dead giveaway. You're welcome.

I had to google 'truck pull'. Actually, yes, that does look kinda fun. Fairly low on sophistication, yes, but fun nevertheless! s x

great entry!

Aww man! That sounds rough. Wishing for as good an outcome as possible, dear. s x

Golly! Hope youre OK, dear. *thinking of you* s x
from stepfordtart :
My idiot husband claims he's 'from the country' because he lived in Corfe Mullen (a picturesque place by the seaside - googlemaps it!) when he was a baby. The entire rest of his life he's lived in this shitty little town. People are strange. He insists that I must 'hate the countryside' because I can drive around London without shitting my pants...unlike *some* people I could mention! s x
from stepfordtart :
'shagged up'???? We dont say that! 'Shagging', yes, but not shagged up. Heehee. Im gonna start using that. There's loads of boys here in England, your friend is right, but most of them are just as fucked up as American boys. come to England anyway, its a nice place! s x
from stepfordtart :
BooYah! *makes slightly unconvincing 'owned' hand gesture*. Heehee, good for you. s x

That grocery argument is RIDICULOUS!! You guys DID just break up, didnt you? Let him make his own damn dinner! GRRRRR. s x
from stepfordtart :
Unsurprisingly, we get a lot of WASPs over here, in the home of the Angles and the Saxons. But some of us are surprisingly passionate about life ;-). I can sing "Feelings" in Spanish. And "La Bamba". Does that count>? Hee hee s x
from stepfordtart :
Do you have such a thing as 'a man and a van' over there? Maybe that might be a cheaper option. Or hire a van yourself if you can drive one. s x PS Im pretty sure vans arent called vans where you area, but I dont know what they ARE called. I mean this sort of thing: http://www.budget.co.uk/budgetonline/gb/budget.nsf/c/Van_hire,Van_Hire_Fleet
from stepfordtart :
Your day will come, lovely girl! s x
from stepfordtart :
A deep fried turkey seems incomprehensible to the English mind. Even the thought of a pan big enough seems scary (although, I DO have one....goodness knows how much oil it would need to fill it!). I hope pics will go on the cooking blog if thats how you end up doing it. s x
from stepfordtart :
"make out with TJ at the last get together we had with all his friends over"! WTF?! And you didnt just punch her head clean off her shoulders? Man! You are a MODEL of self-restraint! Thanks for catching me up - I like to know ALL the gossip, me! s x
from stepfordtart :
skank? who? Im missing something and that WONT DO! s x
from stepfordtart :
9 DAYS! Eeeeeuuuw. The dirty slut! When my cousin split with her husband, she left a sweater of his on the outside washing line, as a gesture. It stayed there til it actually rotted through and fell on the ground. Then it stayed on the ground. THATS stubborn! Heeheehee s x
from stepfordtart :
I think it makes you sad that you cant 'fix' TJ - perhaps thats why this breakup is hitting you hard, you cant do anything about it? I know we're only hearing one side of the story here, but it sure does sound like he's got some 'issues'. *thinking good thoughts for you* s x
from stepfordtart :
Haha! Wise indeed! s x
from stepfordtart :
Oh! Im so sorry to hear that. You guys had your problems from the outset and I think you tried harder than anyone else would have to make it work. Perhaps thats why youre so sad about it. Its always difficult to admit that you cant always fix things that are broken and I think you two (well, him anyway!) was a little bit broken long before you got your hands on him. Im sure its too early for me to be saying this (and wildly inappropriate) but next time make it someone a little less...ummm...'tightly laced' when it comes to bedtime, huh? ((hugs)) Feel better soon, dear. s x
from stepfordtart :
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY! Really jolly awfully very bally pleased for you, old girl! s x
from stepfordtart :
Well, duh. Your dad is a doofus. How come he didnt call her work and say "please give (her) a message - the school just called and asked her to go pick up her son as he's sick. I would do it but theyre saying it has to be a parent". DUH. L used to wriggle out of stuff all the time like that - "I cant do it....Im only the step-dad/boyfriend/whatever". Good luck with the interview, Mercy! s x

Im off sick today. Are you subbing for me? s x

"corrosion on your batter"??? Is this a cross-posting from your cooking blog? ;-) heehee. s x
from lostasyou :
It's this massive company that deals with letters and cheques and printing and stuff, so you'd think they'd be really strict! But I'm in the warehouse section so I don't have to deal with important people.. I guess that's why I get away with it aha. Luckily my manager is completely laid-back so it's alright. I didn't think he'd let me get away with it but no one has said anything about it! Sucks you can't dye yours :(
from lostasyou :
Haha, I loved Anya :)

Thanks for letting me know that link didnt work - I fixed it now. I am an html-tard! s x
from foxy-316 :
Hi there! Your diary reminded me a lot of my life, but I'm still in college so probably not quite as far as you. Just wanted to let you know you sound so put together and determined, both of those qualities can and will get you a long way. Best of luck, and never forget that there are more fish in the sea and they aren't going anywhere too fast so just take your time.
from stepfordtart :
What part of England? You will deffo have an excuse for a jolly nice holiday, huh? There's lots of interesting things to see and people to meet in England ;-) s x

Hahahshah, true once you just get motivated, everything is all in the bag!! And yes, cheers to a fit future!! :)

Hey! I am making a pact to get fit this summer too! At first, it is a little tiring, but then once you are exercising, you get pumped up and that is what keeps you motivated. I love that feeling after you exercise. It is fantastic!

I had to google her but, yes, thats pretty much my work wardrobe....but with added "everyone from 'Med Men'" thrown in! Work that twinset, girl! s x

I think youll be fine as a sub. You'll be able to do your own (stateside) version of "Dumbass Things My Students Say". Watch for oddly triangular packages in the mail, too! s x
from lostasyou :
That's alright :) it's just all so familiar aha. I don't get why they think they have the right to say such awful "final" things, and then act really affectionate straight after. I used to get that a lot and it really messed with me. Hope things smooth over for you soon :) xx
from lostasyou :
Boys fucking suck. I know all too well about the whole "one day he's horrible and the next he's acting like your best friend" thing. They seem to switch their feelings on and off like a light. They really are the most annoying creatures.. I'm sorry you're going through this. xx
from stepfordtart :
That would be a bad idea. Bat shit, in all its forms, is unpleasant enough. I imagine crazy bat shit would be very bad indeed. : ) s x

Oh dear. Im so sorry. Keeping everything crossed for you and yours. s x
from stepfordtart :
Maybe swapping shifts would be more popular with your co workers than taking time off? Got to be worth a try, huh? s x
from stepfordtart :
What a grim situation to be in at such a young age. Barely older than Jooj and her friends. Hoping he gets the chance for the fresh start you could give him. s x

Im not! (but Im totally making waffles this weekend - thanks SO much) s x

from stepfordtart :
I make pastry in the food processor. Every time. Make sure your butter/shortening is really cold and pulse it with the flour until its crumbs (much quicker than doing it by hand and less chance of your warm hands starting to make the fats go soft). Then add really cold water down the spout of the processor (with an egg if youre making rich pastry) and process in short bursts until it starts to come together. Once its formed itself more or less into a ball, squash it together with your hands and get it in the fridge, quick, for 20 minutes or so before using it. My standard recipe is 225g flour, 150g butter, 1 egg and 25ml cold water. Your pasty recipe may be a little different as traditionally a pasty crust isnt strictly a shortcrust pastry but you should at least get edible tasty results from that recipe! Hope that helps! s x

I hear the WW online options are pretty good (and you dont have to go to meetings and be patronised by some orange-faced bitch in a polo shirt). s x
from stepfordtart :
Ok, I had to google Panera AND GRE but now that I know what they are (!) I can say, No, dont retire at Panera. We will hold you to that promise! And if there's anything I can do re the GRE maths, let me know. I tutor in maths sometimes and maybe have a different approach at getting stuff into your brain that refuses to stick there? Hoorah for having a plan! s x
from stepfordtart :
dont be one if you dont want to be one. There's a couple at school who probably said that to themselves at some point, and it shows. If you possibly can, do something that makes you happy (even if it doesnt make you much money). Youre a long time dead, after all. : ) s x
from stepfordtart :
Oi! We dont want your pissy-offy people over here, thanks very much! And 75 miles away is too damn close - what if she starts to piss ME off, too?! ;-) s x
from julymalaise :
Omg, you should totally buy the nook! The nook is so much better. I have one to be exact and in fact, I am writing this here note from it
from stepfordtart :
I dont remember talking to my parents about sex but Jooj asks/tells me stuff all the time. I am an EXPERT at keeping a straight face and not sniggering (even though sometimes I want to!) and not going red. She even brings home questions from other kids for me to answer! I hadnt heard of LG...but I bet Jooj has! s x
from julymalaise :
I remember when we had to learn that in the seventh grade and everyone was just laughing and making it into one big joke and making nasty remarks and jokes. But when 11th grade came around, it was more serious and people listened more and it wasn't so awkward anymore as it was in the middle school years. So yeah, it was weird to see the difference. I felt the need to share this because of what you wrote on your latest entry...it just reminded me the difference about sex education when you were younger and when you are a lot older. So yeah.. and I do think it is important to learn about it because it is necessary too.
from lostasyou :
Yeah I think that's what happened to me. Didn't notice anything for a while, so that's probably why I didn't link the BC and constant period up for such a long time haha. And good for you!
from lostasyou :
My period used to be like that! It just felt like it was constant. Either not too bad or really bad.. but always there, you know? But that was because I was on a birth control called Cerazette and it just wrecked havoc with my body and hormones. Lasted almost 2 years until I finally realised it was the devil pill, and as soon as I stopped it was back to normal, give or take a little while. I don't know if you use any BC but maybe that is it?

L has photoshop. It is a science of the devil and steals away many many many of your precious hours. (makes nice pictures tho!) s x
from stepfordtart :
hahaha! My husband (who CANNOT CANNOT CANNOT cook AT ALL) once made me a dish of tortellini with a sauce of his own invention. It was utterly inedible. Truly vile. The "sauce" was a special blend containing (amongst other things) wholegrain mustard and Chinese 5 spice powder! I still use 5 spice when Im marinating pork for a stir fry but I cannot smell it without thinking of that particular culinary abhorrence! s x
from julymalaise :
You are welcome!!! And I feel you, it has been raining all day here and I do not think it is going to stop soon. But I do not mind, we really needed this rain!!

I know, it is just those phone people trying to outsmart you and scam you because they hate their pathetic jobs and yes, that Sprint guy is a dick to the max. Absolutely. It's sooo dumb that phone companies try to be right all the time, so stupid!
from julymalaise :
In regards to the phone situation, I can relate. I hate when people are like "Oh yeah, it can't be fixed. Get a new one." Like no, fuck you, it CAN be fixed, you just want to be lazy and be a dickhead for no particular reason, like what the hell? That guy told you spilled soda and you specifically know that you didn't! That guy was just full of it and trying to scam you. Give him hell the next time you go back to the Sprint store!
from stepfordtart :
Made taco bake last night. OMG resounding success! Everybody loved it! I served mixed leaves, sour cream/chives and a raw salsa of tomato, scallions and cilantro on the side. Deffo making that again, it was fab! s x PS gave the recipe (for your bake and my taco seasoning!) to my co-worker today. She's making it at the weekend. Like me, she has kids and kids+taco=mess. Taco bake.....NO MESS! Yayyyyyy!
from stepfordtart :
Wahaaaayyyyy! s x PS Banks are shitheads.

Aaaaaaaarrrgh! Cliffhanger! s x
from stepfordtart :
Every entry brings something new for me to google. I now know what Peeps are and very much want to make a diorama! s x
from stepfordtart :
I had to google taco bake! It kind of sounds a bit like what would happen if you dropped a huge plate of tacos and then scooped em back onto the plate before anyone noticed! If the chips are on the bottom, do they go soggy? I just cant imagine what this would be like - we dont have it here, fersure! Before I saw the recipe I thought the meat would be on the bottom with a crispy chip topping, but thats not right, is it? Is it nice? Honestly? Do I need to make it or can I let this one pass me by in the interest of harmonious international relations? s x
from stepfordtart :
switch brands! Also, this is supposed to be da shizzle for regulating/reducing periods http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/sex-and-relationships/medicines/mirena.html - my gyno recommended it (but I dont need it now - chemo=menopause when youre 45!) s x

Well, I am glad you like the movie! I watched some of it, but eh... wasn't really my thing, but it was not BAD, I have to admit. And if you would like, you can add me as well!
from julymalaise :
Oh really?? Sounds cool and how was the movie?? And if you do not mind, may I add you? Your journal is really cool!!
from julymalaise :
You should definetely take the book out, it is quite a great book!! Hahha, I watched the movie again not long ago. It is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again and not get bored of it. The first time I watched it was in my eighth grade Social Studies class and I fell in love with the movie!! Hahah, if that is possible!! Hahha, what commericial was it on? Do you remember?
from stepfordtart :
What? Having a hairy face? ;-) s x
from julymalaise :
I saw your entry with the Gone With The Wind and I had to comment on it because that is my favorite movie of all time. I recently read the book and the book is very intruiging and quite a brilliant masterpiece!! I apologize if this note was random to you, but I just love Gone With The Wind!!
from stepfordtart :
"go beat your meat if you think you can beat our meat". Oh, and LOTS of puns about pork swords and beef curtains. The possibilities are endless, dear! DO go and get yourself an internship, if only for the flesh/meat/sex based pun opportunities! s x
from stepfordtart :
rum on top of sours? *shakes head* silly, silly girl! On the 'other subject', boys are strange, arent they? My 1st husband wasnt a keen kisser and had a relatively low sex drive (IMO!). L is a randy old goat and would be shagging 3 times a day if I happened to be around but even he's had to be educated in the 'point' (and the technique!) of kissing. Men! They aint all that! s x
from stepfordtart :
Yay for curry! My husband INSISTS he knows how to count cards but (in ten years) I have never seen him set foot in a casino. He is also not a millionaire so Im guessing if he DOES know how to do it, he's crap at it. Unless of course he's just sparing the casino the embarrassment of losing all their money to him. :-/ s x

Well then, youre half way there! After all, sitting down to write a book WITHOUT a brilliant idea is going to be a hellova lot more difficult! s x

To Life, indeed! (and to your pulled pork recipe, which I made yesterday and was heartily enjoyed by my husband and my kids!) s x
from stepfordtart :
Through the boxers? Hell's teeth! Good luck with sorting out *those* issues, girl! Since you ask, yeh, I had a reasonable amount of success, but I wasnt really dealing with the whole 'dirty' issue, more a 'so pathetically grateful to be with a real live girl that I must focus SOLELY on her pleasure, regardless of whether it is doing anything for me, otherwise she may not ever have sex with me again'.Kinda sucked all the joy outta the situation. Had to unpick years of 'conditioned to be an unselfish lover' in favour of proper, old fashioned 'unbridled lust'. I could bang on about this stuff for ages - my diary used to be full of sex stuff - but your comments box is probably not the right forum! heehee. s x

C19th was the one you were thinking of! Arent boys funny! Generally speaking theyre much more straight-laced than us girlies - I wish you every success in unleashing his inner caveman. Having gone through a very similar exercise before, it should be a fun few weeks/months/years! re: sleeping naked - not being nosy or anything but if youve had sex late at night, does he get out of bed and get dressed? Most men just fall into a coma after, dont they? (unless there's any leftover pizza!) s x

If there's any pulled pork left, I should have a big ole helping of it, if I were you. Instant hangover cure! s x

I've suddenly got a bunch of stretchmarks on my stomach and I hate them!!! I never noticed them before and I nearly cried when I saw how angry and horrible they look :( Bah! Bloody women.
from stepfordtart :
I have stretchmarks and Im quite skinny. If they are still dark, try real hard to get some sunlight on them as it really does help them to fade. Maybe the occasional sunbed session (if you arent too freaked out about the skin cancer implications!). Otherwise, talk to your chemist about camouflage makeup - Estee Lauder and Clinique both do one (bit ££££) and Im sure there are more cost-effective brands. They're generally really long lasting AND waterproof. Then get that strappy top out and party on, girl! s x
from stepfordtart :
My extensive research over many years has discovered that guys are afraid that, if they like it, it will mean they are gay - like there's a switch up there or something that will turn gayness on. I say they should all try it - the ones that can get over the gay thing usually end up with a totally blown mind. s x PS We share our (big) bathroom for showers and stuff but NOT for anything toilet-based.

from stepfordtart :

Re: my template. My friend made it for me (she used to be on here but she's not now) as I am a bit of a fucktard when it comes to html. She set the whole thing up for me and I have had it ever since I started here - it used to have some pictures at the top of 'bondage ladies', which was quite sexy, but at some point I made them disappear - possibly by farting about trying to add a site meter or something like that which is best left to people who actually know what theyre doing. It was weeks before I noticed they were gone and I dont know how to change them back!

Heehee! Cute pics! I use photobucket for mine too but I usually just paste the code straight into my diary (from underneath the pic) so I can see em when Im reading the diary. Mostly thats just in case I go and link to a whole album by mistake and find you can all see something embarrassing! It might also have something to do with it taking me DAYS to write an entry, so I like to have all the wee pics sprinkled through it as I go, to remind me what I was going to talk about....but thats probably a senility thing! s x

I save all sorts of odd bits and pieces on my laptop (mostly thinking I will use them again at some future date). I cannot imagine the horror of losing them all. My sympathies to you, dear. s x

A 16 year old with no place to stay worries me SO much. Jooj is 16 in a couple of weeks and its incomprehensible to me that she might ever be in that situation. Thinking good thoughts for your brother (its not much, but its all I got). s x

You know what, my family are a bit thin on the 'love' front too (I mean my folks and my siblings). Oh sure, I know they love me, but they arent very good at showing it. I make it my business to NOT be like that with my own kids and, because my kids ARE so loving to their family, my family have (VERY slowly) started to love us back! Obviously, my mum will still kiss my husband goodbye and then walk straight past me, but hey, its only been 45 years, Im sure she'll get the hang of giving her daughter a kiss and a hug one day! s x

care to expand on that? s x

Hey Scully, I'm sorry to hear things have been rough with you too. It's always these "last straw situations" in which I rant online. I hope you're happy, and if you ever need to talk, I'm all ears. :)

Is there any possibility that he's just a bit of a 'slow burner' and its taking him a bit of time to get a handle on his feelings? It seems a bit of an odd change of heart fer sure but its not really all that dramatic, is it? More of a slowly shifting quicksand, by the look of it. I think you holding back a bit may have consolidated his feelings towards you a bit, but if the L word hasnt been mentioned yet then maybe its just his natural rhythm of dating, ie make absolutely sure and take baby steps? Just go with the flow for a bit? s x

Heeheehee! After dinner L dragged me to the pub. By the time we got back I was tired out and quite drunk (not in a good way, just in a LettttMeeeeeSleeeeeep way) and I fell asleep before any 'taste tests' could be done. My bad. s x

Ohhhh my goodness!!!! Okay, I am making this official. Scullerymaid's diary is THE diary to read on this website. Wow! Hon, you have just gained a new reader. xx

from stepfordtart :
Nah, dont worry about talking about your sex life - its not like you can be identified from anything you say here - there's no pics or anything and its nothing you wouldnt share with 'the girls' if you werent out in a bar getting wrecked.

OMGoodness! I turn away for a SECOND and look what happens! Gay bars are theeeeeee best for great guys. I have even scored myself once or twice in the same circumstances. Wasnt sure how the TJ thing was going to work out but it looks like it might be a moot point anyway. Yay you! s x PS I find it gently amusing that Portsmouth is the same distance away from you as it is from me. Different Portsmouths, I'll admit, but still kind of cool!
from stepfordtart :
Aww, man! That TJ thing sure is a thorny bunch o' roses, isnt it? Couldnt you get a little bit drunk (or pretend to) and just ASK him what he's up to? That way, if he doesnt respond favourably, you can pretend it was the drink talking and (probably) not lose him as a friend. And who knows, he may take one look at your tipsy self and steam straight in. ;-) s x

Umm, go round and get her back? Then tell the neighbour that the cat is sick and has a special diet and that she MUST NOT feed her. That should work ok, shouldnt it? s x

Four months isnt really that long, though, is it? I think L and I went a full year and a half before we'd admit to 'love' (although I think both of us had been fighting it off for a while!).

Why not, indeed! Even scullerymaids must have a little treat! s x
from stepfordtart :
I should think it was jolly well essential to bring scullery maids over from the motherland - after all, if one didnt, who on earth would wash ones smalls and help Cook with the luncheon? Heehee! s x
from stepfordtart :
Hey! I just clicked on you, seeing as you'd just updated. Can you tell me something - do/did scullerymaids ever exist in America? Its such an English word - my grandmother was a scullerymaid and was the only person I have ever know who used the word scullery. It seems as alien to me for someone from the US to use 'scullerymaid' as a nom de plume as it would be for me to call myself cowpoke or hominygrits. Can you enlighten me? thanks everso. s x
from jaysthoughts :
I believe people are taught to be unhappy about their bodies. Never, in all the writing we've found have I heard from the middle ages of a teenager going on and on about how too this or that they are. If it existed it was extremely rare and peculiar. But in the corporate age, when you can make people question their happiness until they lose it and then convince them that you SELL happiness.. well then. Anyhow, that's my 2¢

from kabukicharms :
Speaking from my side of the gender. We’re opportunistic dicks that enjoy subtly altering the nature of our platonic relationships. Even if we have no serious intentions we’ll still try for a roll in the hay and then shrug it off as if nothing happened. To us the dynamic of any relationship and sexuality aren't interconnected for the most part. Ya can get horizontal and still not have any feelings beyond friendship.

Your "If You Really Knew Me" post was amazing. I loved it and I love you. It was perfect, absolutely perfect.
from johnny-t-h-m :
Hello, my name is Johnny. I'd glanced over at the recent public entries listing, and your screen name caught my attention. I've only read your most recent entry, but it did catch my attention. A few things that jumped out at me were: "Strangers that read my diary know more about me than my close friends ever will." True that. "My roommates are anal, cluttered, hypocritical, immature, and insensitive. They can make me feel all alone in a crowded house and never even realize that the things they've said hurt me. In return, I'm snippy and allow my temper to get the best of me." Sounds like six of seven new non-Disney dwarves, hehe. "I haven't attended church in years because I simply don't agree with the things that go on once everyone walks out of that sanctuary. But I do believe in God. I also believe in spirits and have a tendency to be superstitious even though I know it's a little ridiculous." Same with me for the longest. But a high school buddy of mine was ordained first a deacon, then an Episcopal priest, despite, or perhaps because of his sailor's mouth and his roleplaying gaming habits. Gave me a fresh perspective on faith. He and I had both rebelled against the church back in school in our own ways. What we were really railing against, though, were the Fundamentalists...We're in an era with the highest rates of literacy ever, with actual knowledge just a click away online, and people are dumber than ever about their faith. The same arguments I had when I was four, or junior high, or even high school, I still hear now. Things like the earth is only six thousand years old. Phooey. They're going off of Archbishop Usher's calculations based off of the begat section of Genesis done back in the 1600s. A Hebrew scholar had already done the same thing prior to then, and calculated the universe to be approximately the same age that science would later calculate in the 20th century. But I digress. Well, that's all for now I guess. Hope me being some random diaryland guy commenting on your page hasn't freaked you out. Johnny

02/04/10 - You know I felt the same way you felt when my special person went away, he only went for two weeks but the first hurt like hell - I can tell you though the as the days past and you get a little bit closer to seeing him again it gets better, the pain lessens, and you transcend, you become YOU again. By the way, all that *stuff* that's happening all @ once? you'll be okay...ciao.

Bison burgers mmmm. Chicken burgers mmmm. Salmon burgers... pretty good but don,t drown the salmon with spicey sauce! Go for something lemony! BTW it is really hard to read your light blue text over the light blue in the photo!
from wench77 :
I agree with your attitude about using a cellphone while with someone. I don't see any difference between that and a regular old landline. I mean really. When you call someone it is like turning your back on the person you are with, completely ignoring them, and starting a new thing. Duh?? If I had to use the phone, it would be like "I'm sorry, I need to make a call, I just realised it is 5pm and I have to call X to confirm for tonight. I'll just be a sec." and then JUST be a sec! Texting? twittering? How obnoxious is that, unless you are doing it together. "haha, that is so funny, why don't we post that on twitter?" "yeah, great idea! You type and I'll dictate!" Hey, do you have comments? Didn't see them. btw I was attracted to your username, and then I realised you are subtitled "fag hag" ... that is very cool. ;D
from wench77 :
I'm here via recent public entries too! Yes, you can go to your bank (which I assume you have, if you have a debit card) and ask for a chequing account (I'd be surprised if your debit account isn't a chequing account already), and they will give you some standard cheques right away, and you will get personalised ones within a week usually. I use cheques for rent, paying contractors, charities, my insurance etc. No, cheques aren't dead. And the Irish speak gaelic I believe, not irish. Could be wrong though. I can only say fluent in two languages: English and French, but am learning Mandarin now too. I have also studied Swedish and German, but don't know how to say "fluent" in them... way ta go with your Rosetta Stone French!
from unchallenged :
Skipping for me becomes this calculated and stressful occurrence. Rarely is it this carefree "Screw English class. I'm getting ice cream." I have to look at what's due today, what I'll be missing, if absences are counted or not, how many more absences can I accumulate before getting punished, if the absence does count, will I maybe need to absence later in the semester? haha. By the time I've decided I arrived at the classroom and it's too late to turn around. But when I do skip i try to enjoy and savor it. Nothing wrong with the occasional skip.
from jimmyxtony :
I really enjoy reading your blog so I added you to my buddy list. I stumbled across it in the Recent Public Entries box over there. Also Serenity rocks. If you haven't already, I recommend buying the Firefly box set and having a marathon with anyone that you can find to watch it with you. They will thank you for introducing you to such a great show. Then you can hate Fox together for canceling it. Then make up with Fox because I agree with you, Bones is excellent.

from diamondsky :
Just a thought -- A girl I met recently graduated with a degree in Anthropology. She told me she basically HAS to go to grad school to get any decent job in Anth. With an economy like this, I would suggest going for a major that can give you a better opportunity straight out of undergraduate studies--like Spanish. Juuust a thought.

Uggh, Union Station is so boring! I've definitely been in that situation before. Sorry all our snow melted =(

"Because what is life if you're moody and not happy?" Amen!
from unchallenged :
I know the feeling you are describing. It's kind of like I was saying in my blog about missing something, but not knowing what you're missing. I want to go home, but it's not my physical home. I don't know where my home is, but sometimes I miss it so much it aches. How can you miss something when it doesn't even exist? Good luck with your fresh start. Here's hoping we'll both find our respective homes. Love you.
from unchallenged :
I say drop Anthro completely. It'll free up so much time in your schedule and help with the MAT program, should you decide to take it. Don't kill yourself over a double major. The MAT program with a Spanish major is MORE than enough.
from unchallenged :
awkward and weird...

I know how you feel. I've been like that for a while too. I know what you mean about wanting to disappear. My "trigger" is probably my roommate. Sometimes I just don't have the effort to deal with her. I too see the same people practically 24/7. I could use a few days (weeks??) totally and completely to myself. Anyway, I'm sorry about your sickness. Hopefully we'll both be able to find a cure.

I'm not really inspiring. I got the idea from Diamondsky. She told me it was here theme for 2006. And now it's going to be mind for 2008. Thanks for the encouragement, and good luck with Noname! Haha
from eatmorepizza :
I wouldn't worry about not getting upset over things. I think it is a positive attribute if you can just brush stuff off your shoulders. People complain too much as it is. So don't worry about your ability to not get upset by some banal thing, you are better for it.
from unchallenged :
If you're worried about your friends finding your blog, you could just clear your history frequently. That way if they type a "d" in the address bar, diaryland won't automatically pop up - same for "s" and scullerymaid. Hope it helps. Or if you're REALLY worried, you coud just set up a guest account on your computer for your friends to use, and put a password on yours. But yeah, that's if you're really serious about hiding it. And about the fat comments, I totally agree. Plus, too often I feel like girls say it just for the reinforcement. "I feel so fat!" Then the obligatory "Oh no! You're not fat!" You know what I mean? Don't put yourself down, just to hear others lift you back up. I try to keep comments about my weight to myself. Doesn't always happen, but I say it much less than my friends. My roommate is constantly scrutinizing herself. I learned a long time ago that if you don't like something you have two options - accept it and move on, or change it. Don't do nothing (double negative!) about it and complain. Anyway, I guess your rant somehow morphed into one of my very own. Now I have to go to finish my writing portfolio so I can go to bed because I have to wake up very very early to drive to school and drop it off.
from unchallenged :
What have you heard about Cat? And also, I wanted to wish you good luck on all your assignments and exams. I wrote you a letter, but I haven't mailed it yet, so it probably won't reach you before break. Oh well. GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hey! Umm, about the not missing people. Are you a freshman? I'm a sophomore right now and I remember going through the same thing you did. I didn't really miss anyone at home when I was at school, and I didn't miss anyone from school when I went home. Don't beat yourself up for it, its just how you feel. : ) No need to say sorry for who you are.

from maroca :
I know how you feel. I had a cat for 16 years and I was with her moments before she died. It was shoking seeing her collapsing and not being able to do anything - it was night, I couldn't take her to the vet to put her to sleep, all I did was sit and watch her suffering. When I got out to answer my boyfriend on the phone, she died. I cried a lot and stayed with her until I felt her skin losing its warmth, and then my father buried her in our backyard and I just couldn't watch that, but I have a picture of her grave with a beautiful sign my brother (8 yr-old at the time) made. Now I have four cats and the excruciating pain vanished, but I still miss her more than anything in this world. I hope you start feeling better soon, I really do. (in fact, my dland username is her name)

About the Netflix thing, perhaps it was sent back because of address issues? Not sure. The lady at the Post Office on campus said to write the address as a PO Box, but she was very rude and I didn't ask too many secifics. I don't usually trust rude people. Anyway, I would recommend calling Netflix; that's probably what I'm going to do soon.

I adore the way you word things. Truly do. The idea of hand-,elbow-, and arm-friends is beautiful (but very sad). I love that I can hear your voice as I'm reading this. I'm sorry he forgot you, but it drew you closer to your true friends, and that's something very important. And I'm glad I'm not the only one with a bunch of contradictory feelings.(And trust me, Sunny doesn't mind a jot that you got the week off. If she minded, she would have said so. You know that's how she is.)

I generally dislike getting help or asking for it because then it means that you owe them something, you know? I hate that. I won't want to owe anyone anything so that way they can't hold it over my head and throw it back in my face.

Customer service jobs are the worst. I worked at a Blockbuster for over a year... it's very hard to remain pleasant when people are such jerks. Just remember that at the end of the day, you're still the nice one. Don't let them bring you down. They're just customers. :D Good luck.

People can be stupid, some of the greatest friends I have are gay. I know exactly what you mean about wanting to protect them. My mother once told me the reason why I didn't have a boyfriend was because I hung out with too many gay people! <p>Just ignore all the stupid people out there and have fun. I've discovered that getting angry and starting little fights never changes anything, so I just ignore it instead.</p>

from unchallenged :
I talk too when I'm upset or frustrated or whatever. Talking it out kind of prevents it from tumbling around in my head, which only makes me more frustrated! So I understand that. Trust me, I've heard your rambles! :) But you've had to listen to mine, so we're even. Also, weird thing about me, is I always make lists, even if I never do them. It's like, now they're on a list, so I don't have to worry about them. Helps relieve the stress, but rarely things get done. Ha! Good luck with school. If you need an extra push or a weekend treat, you know who to call.

Hi - we are d-land strangers but I just came across your entry...Isn't The Secret of Ron Mor Skerry the inspiration for the wonderful movie Secret of Roan Inish? (Lovely lovely film, circa 1997?). I think it is, and if you are gaga about the book, you might try to rent this beautiful film.

I am a ISFJ (Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging). I sorta agree, sorta don't, but taking quizzes like those are fun.
from diamondsky :
So... what did you get in the package? The suspense is awful. ;)
from unchallenged :
How have you been? Haven't heard from you in a while. I hope everything's okay. Feel free to call me whenever you want.
from jeanpool :
i suppose i won't be so blue once we go on the holiday breaks. and don't forget the presents. :)
from unchallenged :
Don't stress out too much. Remember to take things one step at a time. Don't worry about wrapping - it's okay to wrap everything Christmas Eve if you have to. Concentrate on school. Um, you could make something nice for your Secret Santa, or candy is always a good option. And if you need help with stress I'm always a phone call away. I promise you will not be bothering me if you call. Probably you will be saving me from stress at the same time! P.S. Shucks. I almost thought I'd find out what I got for Christmas! :D
from diamondsky :
Thank you for understanding my thoughts. It makes me lots better. Promise. :) Hope you're having a spectacular day!
from bookperson :
Old Magic was awesome! And I love Bon Jovi and Maroon5.... weird..... :D
from unchallenged :
You are an amazing girl, you know that? :) I really miss you. I'm thinking that we can hang out some during Thanksgiving Break. We need some bonding time, I think.
from unchallenged :
I understand your feeling of distance from God. I'm kinda going through it right now. Lately I've been so busy I haven't prayed in forever. We should keep praying about it and if you want we can be prayer buddies and help each other out. God bless you.
from unchallenged :
I was going to congratulate your for reaching 100 but I was too late. Congrats anyway! :) And I love your driving fast quote.
from unchallenged :
You have your license. YAY! Hope I get to see you soon. :)
from unchallenged :
Aw sweetie. *hug* When you get your license you can come visit me.
from unchallenged :
Are you dropping me a hint? Hehe.
from unchallenged :
I think you should tell her to pay you back the money you spent to buy the car. Or you could take the car after BTW and hide it! Like leave it a friend's house or Granny's. Force her to fix her car. Muahaha. *cough* But really. She should at least compensate you for your car.
from diamondsky :
Just send me your e-mail and I'd be happy to pass along the code!
from unchallenged :
I think you need a hug. *huggles*

from jeanpool :
You're upset with your junior schedule too? Well, all I can say is we should NOT let it affect our junior year!! :) By the way, good luck with your "I Hate School Club". If I were in your school, I'd be the first one to sign up. hehe..
from unchallenged :
Good luck with the petitions!
from unchallenged :
P.S. I'll make sure that one day we see a musical on Broadway.
from unchallenged :
I agree, a birthday party on your 16th birthday is nice, but what's important is how you enjoy the year. I hope your 16th year has been a great one and I hope all the rest are great as well.
from diamondsky :
You've added me as a favorite? How kind. :)
