July 2016...oh, do come back. Some of us are still pining for you.
from geekboy61 :
Hey, I'm no longer NGM, but I'm back! You'll get the full flavor if you come over and visit, but, basically, I found my sanity, lost my job, and am going back to school in the fall (if, please oh please, I get accepted).
from casa-rosie :
Welcome back again! We missed you! And don't worry, I loved my 40's...Ill wager you will too. Happy Birthday!
from awittykitty :
Elderly naughty bits are the most horrifying. I think I just puked in my mouth a little.
from bathtubmary :

from stepfordtart :
thanks for your note - you betcha I will pester the fucking HELL out of you now you're back. I missed you loads. xxxxxxxxx
from vina-apsara :
Welcome back! Missed you so much. <3
from pennyjar :
Hey girl!!! Welcome back to Planet... whatever... Can't wait for your update! Thanks to you, it now my goal in life to insure that no one EVER, EVER EVER EVER, has reason to refer to me as "Cup of Sour Cunt". I will heretofore be the sweetest, kindest, gentlest being to walk the earth. Just to cover my ass. And you are responsible. I've moved to momonroof.wordpress.com, please stop by soon, I'm so glad you're back!
from poolagirl :
Are you really back? OMG! I have missed you.
from casa-rosie :
I can't believe you are back! Whoo Hoo! I'm no longer wildrosie, I'm now casa-rosie. I'm so glad to see you posting again!
from stepfordtart :
OMFG! Serena! You're back! Missed you loads. Adding you back on my buddies list IMMEDIATELY. s x
from yellow-ninja :
You're back, you're back, you're back! I tried to leave you a note yesterday, but it got lost somehow. Regardless, SO EXCITED. Lots of changes in your life, wow. HUGS!
from hissandtell :
Be still my beating heart! Is it really you? Love, R xxx
from im2evil4u :
Yooo Hooo!?!!? I emailed you at your hotmail. Did you change your email address as well?
from wildrosie :
*Snif* It's OK, I guess you don't love us anymore *Hiccup* No, no, don't worry about us, we'll be just fi-fi-fine. *Waaaahhhh* Please come back and snark again!
from stepfordtart :
yeh! What they said! C'mon Serena - let us know you're ok and not run off with a sailor or moved to Swindon or some other hideous misfortune has befallen you. s x
from wildrosie :
So. You think you can just fade away and we won't notice, huh? Well little missie, you had better get back here and give us a good explanation! Please?
from smokefree-me :
<b>Serenaville</b>. profile - diary (new) - <b>updated 64 days ago</b>. This is not good. What's up? Can I give you a call?? Brian
from smokefree-me :
WAAAKE UUUUPPPP!!! Time for more posting. We're missing you terribly. Have yourself a Merry Christmas!!
from stepfordtart :
hey Serena.you OK? s x
from stepfordtart :
"bare in heere"! WTF? I mean "Barge in here". D'uh. s x
from stepfordtart :
Gah! Your comments hates me. I'll just bare in heere instead and do my "Awwww, blesssssss" instead. Lovely photo - that YAWN! heeeeee. s x
from nakedbarista :
Wait, wait... You don't have a password?! I swear I gave you a password!! I've been "Open" since August!! Send me an email at nikkifoofooATgmailDOTcom and I'll get you the info. I can't BELEEEEVE I forgot to give you a password!
from stepfordtart :
Hi serena! thanks for the note and the wishes and stuff! Cant get onto your comments at the mo so saying Hi here instead. Glad you're OK. Missed you. s x
from stepfordtart :
Hey Serena! you OK? s x (Concerned of UKVille!)
from sparkspark :
You are so welcome, Bella! I'll be trolling through your archives, as well. Trawling? I really should know how to spell that. XO Violet
from beckers-j :
Gosh, I still owe you a guest entry! I'm sorry! I'll get to it soon. I just haven't felt very inspired in quite some time now. But I haven't forgotten! Forgive me! :)
from nakedbarista :
I greatly thank you for all of your kind words and I'm glad that I could help you even without realizing it. If there's anything else I can do, let me know. I'm a fantastic listener.
from smedindy :
Snap snap! Serena! Still looking for photo goodness!
from nakedbarista :
I'm back to the old password now! : D
from bathtubmary :
hello sugar angel - our aspirations to go to the concert in sept. have been dashed. i'm sad about this. but i haven't given up on finding a way to see you. stay tuned. xoxo, d
from coldandgray :
posting friday no matter what!!
from dragonwench :
yeeeaaah, I think new york might be a few years or so away yet. Pretty much everything is in NC or SC right now *pout* but I'll make sure to tell the boyz that our next project should be entire east coast exposure!
from niceguymike :
Well, since I have a bright blue Ford Ranger (one friend, upon seeing it, said "Wow, that's really *blue*."), I call it the Blue Power Ranger. And I'll eventually have Indiana plates, I'm sure.
from coldandgray :
I am posting my guest entry on Monday.
from bathtubmary :
we want to see flaming lips/sonic youth/ween at the state fair - i guess they list on the acts' web sites if not the fairs. nothing's certain yet, but that would be so rad! i'll talk to my homies and keep you posted. squeeeee! xoxo, d
from bathtubmary :
ok now this is just weird - not two hours ago mike called and asked if i wanted to go to this show in syracuse on sept. 1st. my first thought was, yeah, then i could see serena! i was just about to write when i got your note. so, er, any chance you're around that weekend? xoxo, d
from liquid-mojo :
Well there you go, now that I've added you, you are absolutely required to update on a regular basis. It's all in the fine print of the contract. ;)
from wildrosie :
Thank you for the love. I know it is the age, but dammit, my oldest didn't do half this shit. Honestly, I just wanna smack the crap outta her sometimes! All I'd get then is a visit to the local jail though. So I will bide my time until the 15th of August. Then I will be FREE! Whoo Hoo! Partay time!
from coldandgray :
COOL! I will for sure do one (If you are still sure you want me to after the pic I posted on my own site today!) If you feel like it, give me a topic. Thanks. You are the best.
from smedindy :
When is part IV coming out???
from beckers-j :
I'd be thrilled to do a guest entry for you! Although it might be a while since I don't feel like I have much to say lately. If you want to add me to post on my own, you go to "Gold member resources" and I think it's the third selection down - it's something like "guest posting feature". Then you just add my D-Land name in there. Or I can e-mail it to you, if you prefer. Thanks for the opportunity to invade Serenaville! ;)
from smedindy :
Heeeeee! Quick, meet me by the bike rack after school!
from liquid-mojo :
You're welcome. Besides E-ttraction is always a fun subject whether it's a malignant one or benign. =)
from batten :
hee hee hee... Brilliantly done, darlin' woman! Big hug and many thanks for increasing my rolly chair pratfalls...
from beckers-j :
Thank you for the guest entry! I loved it! I left you a comment over there. ;) You're the best.
from beckers-j :
Please, woman! ;) Don't worry about the guest entry. Just do it when you've got some time. There's no rush. And thank you kindly for the comment regarding my sans make-up look. The hat helps, though. ;)
from smedindy :
Hey, I sent you a word file with my first installment! Hope you got it!
from smokefree-me :
Whew. Finished the race. Ran every step. Thanks so much for the kind thoughts - and the hugs. Yeah, a little physical exertion does wonders to burn off some steam. Gotta start thinking of plans for August . . . {{{{bear hugs}}}} right back at ya
from mutantdragon :
Hehe, yes, as soon as I saw that you had deleted all your entries, I immediately wanted to know more. Every once in awhile, I feel the need to wipe things out and start fresh. I did the same thing with all my drawings awhile ago, too. I'm not sure if there's any advantage to it, but to me, it's a harmless experiment. One can always write or draw more. Anyway, I am looking forward to reading more of your entries. Thank you for the nice note, I appreciate it.
from nakedbarista :
Thanks for more niceness!! Most people said "yay. that's nice." I thought that letting her be involved would make me go gray, but I'm shocked at how much fun it has been. She's got good taste! Now, the fun part will be when she paints a mermaid on the wall... Picasso, anyone?
from nakedbarista :
Oh, thanks for the warm wishes. It's been crazy the past few days. GAW! I'm ready for this month to be over already. I need a break. And a martini. And a bag of Snickers minis. I don't ask for much, really.
from niceguymike :
See, I set a goal for myself that I'd do one new thing every month (which has unfortunately turned into one new thing every quarter). Auto racing was my new thing. And now I don't really have to do it ever again. I might go if I have a pretty girl on my arm and have a bunch of extra cash I can't think of what to do with, but it's just not my cup of tea, otherwise.
from bettyford :
oh how i wish that i could carry you around in my pocket.
from beckers-j :
I have no specific topic for you, so waffle away (although not for months please)! ;) Just share whatever you like, and I'll love it. Looking forward to it!
from nakedbarista :
Go ahead and ask me something-- I'll answer it tomorrow : D then you won't have to share an entry with everyone else. You'll be special!
from beckers-j :
Would you be kind enough to write a guest entry for me? I'd love it if you would. I'm going to go ahead and add you so that when you click "Add an entry" you'll see that you can post as me. If you'd rather not do it, just let me know. I won't take offense. Much. ;) Kidding.
from joiedv :
I am like the cat that was killed by curiosity. Hope you divulge some aspect of that spy mission 'cuz I am nosy like that :)
from smokefree-me :
Yup, been a real blast around here the last 24 hours. Things are much calmer today. Everybody (C) is home, but don't know if any of the important stuff has sunk in. I'll let you know about the stalking potential for Thursday, cuz, dude, diversions are definitely required.
from niceguymike :
Thanks for the support. I really do try and be polite about these things. I always answer messages like that, even if it's just to say that I don't think it would work out. I guess it always surprises me when people like that actually bother to do something of that nature. Actually, I guess it doesn't; I had a huge problem with anger years ago -- until I realized I was tired of feeling bad about things I'd said or done. I've been fairly successful since then about simply not doing anything I'll regret later. And realizing that, in a week (or day or month or whatever), it won't matter anyway.
from gofigure :
Thanks for the sweet comment! I'm always so happy to find other diarists I can relate to, and I'm looking forward to reading more of your entries - of course I clicked through after you deleted everything past!
from biodtl :
Thanks for the nice comment - you know -it doens't matter how prepared you are for diapers and illnesses and screaming and sleepless nights, it's this kind of thing that makes parenting the hardest job in the world - the fact that you can't save them from hurt feelings and broken hearts.
from queenoftart :
I cannot tell a lie...I have been here before the "purge" and hugs right back at cha
from coldandgray :
You are tagged, but only if you wanna.
from beckers-j :
Hahaha! Yeah, Danny's tanline is little odd. I would think that it's fake except he's all wrinkly already, and he is a landscaper so he's working outside all the time. Maybe he wears a beanie to work? With a propeller? Ha! I added you, by the way. I don't know what took me so long. I kept meaning to do it. ;)
from queenoftart :
WOW! Why thanks...I think I'm blushing. And ditto, I cant believe I haven't been here sooner.
from nakedbarista :
I've watched it three times already today. That song never gets old. Jack Black is a freakin' genius.
from techrat :
haha. i know i don't REALLY want a baby...it just seems that everyone around me is either having or wanting them, and i am getting a bit caught up in it. the urge will pass...eventually...i just have to stay strong until it does. good lord, i hope it passes soon...thank you for your rationality. ^^
from niceguymike :
Heh. I always forget about those things. Problem is that I always want to do something like that for work -- and they're far too straight-laced and midwestern to deal with it.
from oldmaid :
no worries, i am nothing if not suspicious of my fellow passengers! my neighborhood is pretty busy during rush hour, and there are a couple of other people who usually wait for the bus with me. even so, i do plan on making a note of whether the guy is at my stop again.
from stepfordtart :
Hey Serena, thanks for the note - support much appreciated. I will be administering hourly blowjobs til I get the Offical Skypey OK. Sadly, by the time I get it, I wont be able to talk. arf arf. s x
from coexistapart :
No no, Syracuse is excellent. Was worried simply because Sackett's Harbour = very small town that Big & Candy (et al.) only left like three, four years ago? So basically if you were from Sackett's and had lived there any time in the last five years, the chances that you *don't* know Big or Candy are slim to none.
from techrat :
haha, ponies ALWAYS make me feel better. as do you, my precious. the nice thing about birthday depression is that it's usually over once the birthday is. *hugs*
from stepfordtart :
Only vaguely aware of the Skype thing (being a bit of a technotard) and had always gone "yeh. but who ya gonna CALL?" - apart from Ghostbusters, obviously. Promise to research it properly now tho. Ta muchly for the excellent idea! s x
from coexistapart :
Not in Sackett's Harbor I hope....
from wildrosie :
OK, if you get the job there, I will come and serenade you! Then we will get PG (Joe) inbetween us, tease the hell outta him, then run away laughing merrily! ~Rosie~
from batten :
L took over as crew boss when I left the boat. She is now responsible for vetting and bringing on crwe. Ultimately the final decision lies with the skipper but he's not what you call a decisive sort. This small town BS has just gotten to be too much. Everyone wants people to be "nice" no matter how grave the offense. I'm not not playing nice. I just ignore or walk away when Biddle tries to come play. I simply do not want to associate with him. And no one wants to simply let it be... That's where this letter came from. Does this help? email me or something... we'll dish. (wry grin) Thanks for the input. Big hug. -J
from techrat :
you know, a lot of people have misread "math lab" in that same way. some people have even misheard it when spoken. maybe it is something in how i say/type it? i hope the choking fit didn't cause any permanent damage.
from nakedbarista :
What does it say about us that our men-folk would rather have their testicles sliced open than deal with us on birth control, hahaha!
from nakedbarista :
Oh, most definitely the red : )
from batten :
Thanks so much for that note. I've been feeling like my writing has totally been shot to hell since the job ramped up. You're a tremendous morale boost there... Big hug to you... Come visit this summer! -J
from revisions :
ha ha ha...over-analyzing?! that's putting it midly..i'm a head case if there ever was one! thanks for stopping by - i look foward to reading up on your world as well.
from bettyford :
instead of "wonder twins activate", we are all, "wonder twins commiserate". email anytime love xoxoxox
from coldandgray :
Of COURSE! Take your time. I am just glad you still want to do it. I am really thinking of your friend, I seriously could not even imagine.
from bettyford :
hey - it's gonna be me and you 'til the end of now. counting our fucking points and fighting off mood swings like the mother fuckin' wonder twins and shit. also, that chiro thing is totally freaky! my mom wanted to take miles to her chiro and i said, "hell to the no, nana!". i'm glad i did. and my heart goes out . . .
from dandydandy :
Like Evil said, how could I not? I know how much it helps to receive encouragement/acknowledgement during times like these--even from strangers. Hugs right back atchya, and pass them along to Erianne by the dozen. My heart goes out to her and Jo.
from im2evil4u :
My word, how could I have not offered my support. What a horrific and freaky thing to happen. The whole family must be beside themselves with grief. If you talk to her and she'd like some one to chat with at 2:00 in the morning, I'm usually up --give her my number.
from heydomsar :
hey thanks for the favorite entries adds! i'm adding you as a fav, if you don't mind. probably stopping by from time to time to check on you. ;)
from coldandgray :
You for sure have been selected! When you go to the ADD AN ENTRY link on Diaryland, it should say: Post as Guest? Coldandgray, and then you just click the link. If it is not showing up, please let me know.
from dragonwench :
see, now how can I be all depressed after reading your note? I swear to god some days you are the only person who keeps me sane. and I love you. :)
from niceguymike :
Well, yes, you are the first woman to say that. Although a former co-worker tells me that, under the influence of codeine, my voice gets very high-pitched and I'm very talkative. Now *there's* something you probably never knew about me before.
from biodtl :
I agree. I don't have time for that nonsense. And she obviously wanted people to see it, what with the banner. It's insulting, really. I was concerned when I read it - the pissed.
from vina-apsara :
Oh how I love you, for you leave the most supportive and comforting comments! Thanks so much (esp re Bizarro dolls).
from bathtubmary :
ok doll - i've got to figure out my wedding schedule for the spring/summer (it's a big one this year, oy) but once that's done let's make a real plan. can't wait to meet you. xoox, d
from niceguymike :
You remind me of my sister, who longed to wear glasses when she was a kid (and doesn't like them, now that she needs them). What could possibly be distinguished about bifocals? I don't even have graying temples to go with them, although I am working on a rather nice bald spot and receding hairline. Still, getting glasses again beat the heck out of not being able to see well at any distance, which is what I was doing. Secretly, I'm really looking forward to getting these glasses, although I dislike the characterization of "old man's eyes".
from smedindy :
I sent an email. We more than cool, sis! Yo! Just send me the addy!
from dieselengine :
Thank you so much for the nice comments today, it really helps. Seriously. And I might take you up on your offer!
from beckers-j :
I was mostly just kidding. No big deal. I'll follow the rules next time.
from beckers-j :
You're the best. Thank you so much for the comments. I haven't felt like I'm doing anything wrong, but it's nice to have that confirmed by someone else - especially someone who's had similar experiences. ;)
from coexistapart :
Hi there, thanks for stopping by! This is the first time I've ever actually used my banners, so it's kind of neat to see who actually ends up coming on through. (I'm not sure that I know my site stats well enough to figure it out on my own....) Hope you feel better soon, I *hate* the thought of food making me feel nauseous. :(
from bettyford :
angel, just admit that you've poisoned your whole family! come to me, i will hide you in my basement. also, "charlie brown head", hahahahahahahahhahaha!
from metaleve :
Strangely enough, I don't get any negative reactions from birds. I can be near them, hold them, etc, nothing happens. Put me near a feather pillow or boa or anything made with feathers and forget it!!!!!! I felt like my flesh was on fire last night after that incident.
from dandydandy :
Awww. You are too kind! Honestly though? You so win the cute award, hands down. :-)
from smokefree-me :
Thanks for the note there. I haven't weighed this little for over 20 years! I'm sure you'll have success with your efforts too. After quitting smoking, a little dieting is a breeze. Surprisingly enough, exercise can become like a drug too. After a while you'll start to crave the kind of buzz you get from working up a really good sweat. Sick I know, but too true. Congrats on getting started. Brian
from beckers-j :
Holy crap! I didn't know they made bras like that! AWESOME! I am totally get one of those bras and the Diane dress. I am going to be so HOT. Thanks so much for the suggestion. You're the best!
from dieselengine :
The buttons are of all sizes and shapes. I lost that auction at the last minute but managed to get 130 assorted buttons of varying colors, sizes and makes for only $5 with S&H included. YEEE!
from zonoria :
Yes! Nothing like snarky Stewie goodness to bring a smile to the face. Heh. STEWIE FOR GOVERNOR!
from yellow-ninja :
Happy Birthday, beloved Mother Hen! I hope your day is completely lovely, despite your lack of wishing to mark this very special day. Oh, and I'm sorry if you were alarmed about my melodramatic outburst two weeks ago. I didn't mean to make anyone worry, it was just a culmination of too many factors and I felt like absolute shit and that was the result. Things are better now, just too busy to say anything nor do I have much to say! I might shoot you an email later but today is the day of writing at least 2 papers so we'll see. In the meantime, thanks for you concern and have the best birthday ever! Hugs and love, S
from vina-apsara :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Hope you have a smashing time celebrating with the people who rock your world. May this year be blessed with lots of love, happiness, wealth, fun and great health for you. MMMMMUAH!
from vina-apsara :
THANK YOU for the birthday wishes. It means a lot to me. Mmmmmuah! I believe yours is on the 23rd? :-)
from bettyford :
are you finding that the older you get, the worse the "cycling" becomes? i think that one of my biggest reasons for the whole denial of circumstances was my fear of being put on a shitty mood stabilizer (depakote) and completely loosing the few "ups" i had. because without those, how fucking rotten can it get, right? supposedly, this new drug i'm on is great. it's gotten great reviews on remedy find. maybe you should try it? just to see what it does for you? i think i'm on too much medication at this point. by the time i work up to my full dose of lamictal - i'll be taking SEVEN crazy pills per day. my liver is probably in worse shape now than before i got clean. but whatever keeps mama sane, huh? my heart goes out to you. xoxoxoxx
from hissandtell :
Of course I still read you, darling. I only took you off my little list because you stopped updating for all those months. Now that you're back - regularly - I shall reinstate you to your former glory any day now! Much love, R xxx
from im2evil4u :
http://im2evil4u.diaryland.com/060122_53.html or the entry is called Time to Get Ill. BTW, that was a great response to Celeb Sex Club.
from metaleve :
You are so sweet!!! I locked up a while back because I wanted to move my diary to another server, but then I got lazy and just started writing on blogspot. I still have to archive my original entries for the past few years, but in the meantime, my new page has my writings since June. I have to do some diving into your archives as well! I'm glad you're still up and running. \m/
from rue25 :
Hey you... if you think about it you can check it out over at http://trlgrrl.blogspot.com/
from smedindy :
Hey, wherefore art thou? Did my email scare you away???
from plopphizz :
Whoops, it looks like that last url stretched your notes section, sorry about that. Feel free to erase the note since I think it is what caused the width problem. -- Ploppy.
from oldmaid :
brown rockports? awesome. heheheh. of course, had it been one of us girls forgetting her shoes, we'd have simply hightailed it to a mall and bought a new pair!
from nakedbarista :
I saw your note in Hubs' notes and I wanted to say that when Robin (our oldest) was about a year old, we entered her in a pageant and she took last place. Ever since then, the wind has been out of our sails. We know she's beautiful, though!
from hubbyman :
Just thought that I'd let you know that you were correct on you guess. That was infact Joe. However, you came in second and it was only 5 "bucks" anyway. I also think your template rocks. I used to have a Calvin and Hobbes one too. Yours is way better than mine was. Calvin looks like he is poopin and runnin at the same time. I'll call this ruppin...or poonin. Yeah, poonin sounds good.
from bathtubmary :
aw, shucks lady. i really can't wait to meet you (especially since i got to be red's alibi for the prof) - do you think you'll be back this way again? if not, let's hook something up your way and maybe get la in on it, too. xoxox, d
from nakedbarista :
I love love love that you know about Homestar Runner. The Cheat cracks me up. Every Monday, without fail, I go to the site in hopes that they've updated something. Happy Tuesday!!
from reese219 :
Hey there Serena! Thanks for the offer. I'm so glad I have such great friends here. You are such a sweetheart! I think things are going to go better than I planned. I'll keep ya updated.
from batten :
Thanks babe. Will definitely keep you all posted. I could stand to lose a few pounds. Nowadays my disinterest in food while stressed doesn't last long enough to culminate in any signiicant weight-loss. (wry grin) Big hug to you. -J
from niceguymike :
Wow, thanks for the kiss! Just for that, I'm not going to make any crude comments about moons.
from niceguymike :
Uh oh.
from nakedbarista :
No need to grovel! You can just snag him from my diary. But keep him in a dark, damp place, water him twice a day and let him out three times a day to potty. : )
from niceguymike :
I actually have considered a hanging wineglass rack, but I need to research them a bit first. I also need to figure out exactly what I'd need anyway. I have four stems right now, but that could always change ...
from dandydandy :
You really are a ray of sunshine in my comments! You make me laugh so! I would say you should adopt me as your sister, but it might be easier to take me on as a cousin. Because, if you get sick of me, it would be less of a scandal to disown a cousin. hehe.
from wistful-blue :
Thank you for saying "Hello" (dammit!) :-) -cat
from bettyford :
yeah yeah. ithaca is gorges. no, there is this eco villiage there. i've decided to become a smelly atheist hippie. for real! come over and i'll make you some tofu. as soon as i learn how, that is. i'll also knit you something when i learn how to knit. you can have my razor and hairbrush too. i seem a little old/established to be going through this. aggghhhh!
from scotvalkyrie :
TAG! You're it! Go visit my diary to get the details.
from niceguymike :
Well, but if you don't eat raw hot dogs, and you have an 8-pack of buns and a 10-pack of hotdogs, the count is off. You're right; we can never really go back, though -- although I do my damndest.
from teachin-usa :
I found you because we both commented on Grrl-blog's latest entry. I don't have my archives posted but the random button is fun.
from bettyford :
those stockings looked big. but the were so skinny they didn't hold very much. i'm a sucker for the cute, though. i thought they looked like total old school classic stockings. old navy - if you can believe that. happy new year, love.
from reese219 :
LOL Oh ok. I saw 'reeshard' and thought, hmmm. Ok.I thought because I HAD locked my diary you were saying that. LOL No, I didn't lock my diary because of that. I just decided to take a break from writing on d-land for a while. I locked my diary because since I am not writing for a while, my luck would be that someone I know, or I do not want reading it, would happen upon it while I am away. Better safe than sorry. I am not completely gone from here. I am still reading everyone, just not writing.Just taking a break. No worries. Thanks.
from candoor :
you are strangely enjoyable :)
from dandydandy :
You're welcome!
from nakedbarista :
Serena, thank you! I have been debating whether or not to change my template lately, and you were the deciding vote. I promise I'll have a new one up shortly! : D
from plopphizz :
Congratulations, you have been Quoted: http://quoted.diaryland.com/hohoquotes.html. Thanks for the great writing. -- Ploppy.
from niceguymike :
Psst ... you can get Bumble ornaments at any Hallmark store! I'm thinking of getting some more, too! The one I have is *so* last year.
from shear-madnez :
Thanks for reading my diary and leaving a note. I've bookmarked your diary as well and look forward to reading it. Thanks again!
from dandydandy :
Oh, I'm so glad you like your theme song! It would be a total bummer if you didn't. You absolutely can adopt me! LOL I forgot about Sam's sister--at least consciously, obviously was in my head somewhere to fit so perfectly. You are an absolute blast! :)
from bettyford :
that is so fucking funny! your poor mom. i can't believe that lady had the balls to even call her back once her husband discovered her mistake. as i was reading the story, i thought that the lady was going to realize that all that stuff happened on her watch (or daddy's). this gives nanny 911 a whole new meaning. sorry your mom had to go through that, but what an awesome tale!
from nakedbarista :
Wow, is it fantastic to find someone as obsessed with cleaning as I am.
from dandydandy :
Thanks for adding me! Your comment made me laugh. I do believe this is the first time I've found common ground with a person in the extensive childhood cleaning department! Too funny.
from dandydandy :
Hey, I meant to give you a little heads-up that I added you, but things have been, shall we say, hairy? Yea. Hairy. Anyway, I have been looking for more awesome d'landers to peruse on a regular basis, and your most recent entry was great. Haven't had time to visit your past, but soon, oh yes, soon. Thanks for the note!
from bettyford :
yes! I would totally spy on my neighbors and write down whatever they were doing. it was such a rush for a 10 year old. the thrill of being caught? and remember how she used have a slice of cake every day when she got home from school? and then someone found her notebook, right? i hope miles likes that book as much as i did.
from xnavygrrl :
I too have gotten that tanked. It's kind of funny to read about it....from your point of view. :)
from cyanideeyes :
YAY!!! I've actually been meaning to call you, but I'm with a new band now and it takes up tons of my time. In any event, if we're not throwin' down tonight I will float you a call. Oh yeah!!! the username is your diary name and the pass is your real name. Lotsa love to the whole clan from Cy!!!
from dragonwench :
did you know I love you beyond reason? and you better believe I will be emailing, cuz I can't think of a smarter mom to ask for advice. thank you thank you, for making me feel a little more sane.
from beckers-j :
Thanks so much for offering your opinion. However, I went with something else, so I hope all the fashionistas will not point and laugh. ;)
from biodtl :
Thanks for the comment - it helps to know others have been through it. The boy IS messy, but he doens't care if you touch his stuff. And the eye contact isn't him, either. But he daydreams in school, is forgetful, almost seems like he doesn't hear you. I want to do whatever I can to help him, but sometimes you just need the luxury of going, "aaaccckkk!" Then you feel guilty for the "aaaccckkk". Anyway, I appreciate the support.
from batten :
There were times when he was ripping into me and I prayed for him to fall down the stairs and break his neck. But things in my world don't work that way. (wry grin) Did his death really help with closure for you? I'm at the stage where I don't care about Rick one way or the other. I wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire but then there are a few others I can say that about too. I simply don't care if he lives or dies. What's done is done now and I'm more than I ever thought I could be. What really matters now is that none of my friends aside from Heather ever stood up for me. That seems to be the most enduring hurt out of the whole ordeal. I guess I shouldn't place so much faith in those I call friends, huh? sigh. Thanks for your kind and supportive words, darlin' woman. It means a great deal to me. Big hug to you.-J
from cyanideeyes :
Ummmmm, yeah. I locked. I dunno if you even still read me or not, but if you do send me an e-mail at the gmail addy with a username/pass preference and I'll happily create it. Otherwise, ummmmmmm, yeah.
from findmeagain :
Hi Serena! It's Misty (virginiawildflower)..I'm heartbroken that I had to destroy my blogspirit page -- I'm not sure where I'm 'moving' to next, though I doubt it will be back here to Dland, lol. Once I get settled, I'll let you know where I am :) Thank you for the note!! *hugs*
from marzipanmind :
Hey, I know this doesn't help you any, but... wow, that sucks. And I thought *my* Mondays were dodgy.
from mare-ingenii :
Serena... thank you so much for your sympathy, and your support lately. It really means a lot.
from smedindy :
Aw. Thank yew....thankyewverrrymuch!!!
from marzipanmind :
Hey thanks for the note! I wasn't expecting to be "found" so soon. I agree with you though... "orange" rhymes just fine with "flange". You just have to do it in an Olde English accent, that's all.
from vina-apsara :
You owe us a Halloween entry! Love ya.
from joiedv :
Oh, wow. Thanks for the nice note. Not necessary, but very classy ;) I have seen your name around here and there, and the other day out of boredom, I was hopping through some other peoples' faves and hooped onto your name, laughed my rear off, and the rest is history!
from beckers-j :
Hey, thanks for your comment in response to my "Drunk" entry. ;) I bet we'd have a grand old time if we were ever to get wasted together - talk of death notwithstanding.
from dieselengine :
thanks for the note...I'm gonna be checking you out too!
from bettyford :
you have so totally made my day!
from dragonwench :
*love* I missed you so!!
from drbigbeef :
Thanks for the note. I think I'm flattered that you compared my writing to a car accident, but I'm not sure. But it's an indecisive day -- I can't decide whether this woman I keep seeing in the elevator is cute or just has big tits. Anyway, if you are fascinated/offended by my diary, you should see the stuff that I write but then think better of posting... Behave, DBB
from reese219 :
Hi thanks for the note. I am reading through your entries now. You sound like a really cool person. I like the way you write.
from niceguymike :
I'm going to overlook that whole "older man" thing, because it's nice being in someone's ballpark for once. Heh. Seriously, I think the best part of birthdays is the petting you get.
from niceguymike :
OK, I've never actually tried a line on anyone, but I'm positive I'd get hit if I used that one. I'm not going to turn down a compliment, though! Heh.
from beckers-j :
Thanks for adding me! And how is it that you know me and my antisocial ways so well already? :)
from cheeky-kiki :
Thanks for the lovely message, always great to meet someone who feels the pain that is customer service! Glad you are enjoying it xx
from batten :
Thank you so much! And those kids costumes are ridiculously cute. Isn't there a law or something against unbearable cuteness? Thanks for reading, woman. I appreciate it. Big hug to you. -J
from niceguymike :
You mean that line *works*?
from lucid-denial :
well thank you. sadly, i have not been motivated to write lately, but something good is coming soon; i can feel it.
from vina-apsara :
I'll be there sooner than you think. The bells, they are a-ringing!
from beckers-j :
Hey, thanks for checking out my diary. :) I'll be back to peek at yours some time soon as well.
from red-wine :
Of course! Terribly remiss of me to leave you out of the loop. Username: redwine, password: shiraz. I've locked and unlocked a few times for various reasons, but the password remains the same. Ta!
from hissandtell :
Oooohhh - deerskin clothing - YUM! I have this green leather vest with long, long fringes that reach to my knees. What I love most about it is that when I pull it together at the front, my bosoms are ASTOUNDING. I attribute this to the fact that the vest is, in fact, at least two sizes too small for me. But gracious, how pillowy and downy-soft my breasts are in it! (And are you really back for good, serena darling? I just don't want to get my hopes up too soon you know, you flighty slippery thing you!) Much love, R xxx
from biodtl :
Thanks for your nice comment. I'm not much on the self-esteem and that made me feel all warm and fuzzy during a brief respite from rotten and bitchy.
from crazy4muffin :
Absolutely! Please do come into the fold. It is all part of my master plan to corral a bunch of bad ass babes and take over the world! Bring a blender and limes.
from hissandtell :
My darling serena, I was soooo thrilled to hear from you. I'm an awful girl and you must promise to punish me because I did give up on you - almost! - because I figured you were far too busy to need the pressure of worrying about us here too. But I'm so excited you're back and, as usual, I adore your entries and laughing at your take on the world. And, may I say, I want that throw-up lunchbox for my lunchbox collection more than I've wanted any other (except my "Little Miss Naughty" one, which remains my favourite...") Much love and endless adoration, R xxx
from niceguymike :
Well, silly, of course I'm still reading you. Almost gave up with that long silence, but I couldn't quite delete you. Glad you enjoyed the cooking story; I can laugh about it now, too.
from melpomene03 :
Thank you, heh..I'm really glad you liked it. The same goes for me, I'll also be back.
from meine-kleine :
You know what would be even easier than #serenaville? Some type of messenger. It's true.
from melpomene03 :
Has anybody ever told you how hilarious you are?
from vina-apsara :
I suppose you never got any of my emails. Basically I was in New York in June and wanted to meet up with you but you were incommunicado. It would have been fun, I guess. Next time, hopefully. Good to see that you're back.
from meine-kleine :
And you should probably change your profile now that I am abusing punctuation elsewhere. Hah.
from supershan :
You're not back!!! I am not squeeing with glee right now! Though it has been six days since your non update . . .
from meine-kleine :
Coolmom! I saw you updated and I was all, SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I'm crazy. HUGS!
from erianne1 :
I, for one, am still here. :)
from witchful :
Ahhhhhhh!!!! So good to see you updating again!
from supershan :
Mother Hen! No worries, I understand how busy you must be, what with being the best bartender ever and still keeping up with that family of yours. But a phone call on my birthday would only be about the best thing ever! I am definitely looking forward to seeing you! I shouldn't have anything going on (at least nothing I am aware of, wink wink) after 3 or so, so any time after that would be great! I can't wait to talk to you! Much love and hugs!
from hissandtell :
I think Camilla will be an excellent queen, you know. She and Elizabeth Regina share a similar taste in clothes and hats (ie fucking ghastly), so she should inherit an entirely appropriate wardrobe when the time comes. Love, R xxx
from cyanideeyes :
See how uncool I am? Anyway...you should kick me a call when you get the chance...I miss you and there's too much to catch up on...and I hate the internet now...
from xnavygrrl :
I'm SO GLAD you're back!!
from vina-apsara :
Oh my God you're back!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaargh! *runs towards you like rabid fan8
from im2evil4u :
Oh yes, and why didn't you return my phone calls young lady?
from im2evil4u :
I got so excited when I saw your name highlighted on my buddy list my heart stopped. Really. Yay! You're back (and your comments don't work).
from rue25 :
Hey biotch! Happy Valentine’s day. Wub you!
from vina-apsara :
I miss you LIKE HELL. Save me from misery.
from erianne1 :
Where on earth have you disappeared to? I can't find you irl or in cyberspace. I'm becoming frustrated!
from vina-apsara :
You know what? They no longer sell your beloved coconut almond creme thingies here! How dare you move all the supplies over to your neighbourhood! Now I have to think of something else to do for you on Feb 23rd. :-)
from hydrogeek :
Deary - the luscious conception attempts were in the privacy of my own home with my husband, but thanks for worrying! (The Vegas trip, along with hopeful sightings of chicks with bulges is this coming weekend.) And don't fret, Hiss is duly adored, not to mention added to my favorites so I know when she updates! Much love to you, hydrogeek.
from angel-elf :
Please know it had nothing to do with me losing interest in you, I just thought I shouldn't bother others. I don't know, I'm kind of in a writer's block at the moment, so sorry if there is nothing new to read, but you're welcome to read my archive if you're bored at any time. xoxo
from comma-abuse :
I was on most of yesterday and did not see you... but the same goes for today if you have time. I have tons of time. I FINISHED MY RESEARCH PAPER. BOOYEAH.
from comma-abuse :
Or, you know what, even if I'm not in the chat (may have gotten the wrong server), just try on yahoo.
from comma-abuse :
I will be on today, Coolmom. If I'm in the chat but don't respond, you can try to reach me on yahoo (underyukiagain). That way at least I'll hear a binging noise and rush to see you. I'm usually running all over, see. Hope to see you!
from dragonwench :
*super dopey happy grin of loooooove*
from catfish19 :
Thanks for the feedback! It made me feel all warm inside... But seriously folks, I checked out a bit of your stuff too (I'm all for returning favours) and I really like it. Consider yourself flattered.
from vina-apsara :
Very well, let me see if I can round up the goods (come to think of it haven't seen them around at the neighbourhood supermarket lately), and once the shipment is ready I will contact you for your location. ;-) Have a great weekend, sweetheart.
from xnavygrrl :
Your poor husband. That made me spew soda out of my nose, I was laughing so hard....!
from niceguymike :
Well, I must admit that I had no idea the same company made other confections. I sort of imagined some poor fellow trudging off to work at the Nutella plant every day. But, damn, that stuff is good.
from cyanideeyes :
No worries hun - I think we discussed the matter of my birtday ONCE, and that was spring last year, so there's no way in hell I'd expect you to remember. Besides, you got stuff going on. So when is it okay to talk? I miss you dammit!!!
from candoor :
happy new year :)
from comma-abuse2 :
God help me. http://comma-abuse2.diaryland.com/dresspicard.html
from supershan :
Thanks. I was just so utterly pissed at my parents yesterday. Add in the stupidness of getting lost and then having my dad unexpectedly invite friends over and it was just too much. I feel bad for being so whiny and pissy about it now, things could have been much worse. I was actually laughing last night when I filled my sister in on the latest M&D offences. Oh well, life goes on, eh? And Happy New Year's Eve! *HUGS!*
from comma-abuse :
...Not as awesome as THE BOY. (I miss him a lot right now, so I'm ranting and being stupid. Augh.)
from comma-abuse :
Poor The Boy. I reassure in secret image messages that I do NOT have the hots for Picard. He won't believe me, you know. He thinks I am going to leave him for a 64 year old space captian. ...Picard is totally awesome, though.
from comma-abuse :
I think the standee of your dreams is in my diary right now. HAH! (I think I have upped my nerd value. I truly do. I feel invigorated. The people at the conventions will envy me now, because I got him for free. Hahahahaha... ohhh, shoot me now.)
from im2evil4u :
Hey Darlin' I wanted to let you know that I recieved your card this AM - thank you sooooo much. We love you all.
from dragonwench :
yup, cutco indeed
from vina-apsara :
Hon, I know the Geico Gecko! :-) K told me about it in one of many futile attempts to make me see geckos as likeable. I can actually pick up a dead cockroach by its feelers if I have no, but I will DIE if a gecko so much as runs across my palm. I'm loopy that way.
from widyaz :
Hon? I've moved to the new diary. You know which one. :-)
from mysdevious :
I'm coming back........I think...I'll email you my other diary. I totally forgot about you*hangs head in shame*
from im2evil4u :
You, my friend, can stay with me anytime you discover a rotting corpse in you home. Hell, the whole family can join you! Might be a tight squeeze but hell we'll keep each other warm. It is that *particular* friend that I say no to. There could be a million rotting corpses and she would have to find some place else to stay. I'll explain why when I speak to you. Will you be home Friday night?
from imaphatpig :
glad that you enjoyed the pain and anguish of my mystery can adventures. stay tuned for more challenges between stef and me! our goal is to make life as "interesting" (or rather entertaining) as possible. you gotta do what you gotta do to get through a humdrum "office space" existence.
from niceguymike :
Thank you very much for the nice comments. As I inch farther into middle age, that sort of thing really makes my day! Now if I can just attract the attention of some nice single girls who are MILF-material ...
from hydrogeek :
Let there be snark on earth indeed. I'm with you! Also, you're with me, because I just added you as a favorite. Lovely reading!
from niceguymike :
*laughing* Thanks so much for the nice notes! Yes, I have returned from the NiceParents and am constantly monitored by cats, to ensure I don't leave unexpectedly for long periods of time. Oddly, they seem to feel that I should keep them updated, too.
from dukkha-tanha :
Thanks for adding me! And your comment rocks, it feels like I've been reviewed by a critic. =)
from canoegirl :
So I'm not quite sure what happened with my notify list. You are on the list. I sent the message. Other people on the list got the message. You apparently did not. Hmmm. Maybe for now I'll email you directly what I sent to the others (including dress link) but let me know if you don't get the next one.
from comma-abuse :
I think, maybe, everyone is phoning you except for me. Which is sort of okay, because I am timid and crazy. Ask Sir Assassin.
from supershan :
Well, I was going to call but I also figured it was too late, around 11:30 my time. I didn't want to disturb your family. And I'm holding you to that phone call, 11/5. I could use a good talk, what a hellish day.
from supershan :
Yes, sorry Mother Hen dear. I voted for Bush. And I would do it again! Haha. And I eagerly await that phone call. I had a dream the other night that I had talked to you and I was so excited until I realized that it was just a dream. Ah well.
from hamiltonian :
Vote for me diaryland president, just visit my site and vote today...
from niceguymike :
You know, if this inspires anyone to get their work done pronto, it was totally worth it. I'd known for probably two or three years that I needed to have work done, and just kept putting it off. Thanks for the cyber-hugs, and PLEASE make an appointment tomorrow!
from iamhubpluh :
If you are voting AGAINST Bush, check out http://BADNARIK.com he is for stoping the war in Iraq, and NOT sending more troops as Kerry is for (based on his debate answers). Vote your heart, not the less of two evils!
from niceguymike :
*laughing* You MUST be hormonal if you can label the ramblings of a Zoned pension geek "cute". I'm sure I couldn't have been a very attractive sight, as I celebrated at 4a with a diary entry. Those few hours of sleep seem to have done me some good, though, as I'm still going ... and I have a ways to go yet to finish that one, last plan. *sigh*
from widyaz :
Darling, your NY Fall Trip itinerary sounds fantastic! Time to fatten the piggy bank. Have a good weekend.
from dukkha-tanha :
Thanks so much for the note you left me...uh..last week? I'm slow. I came by to check out your diary and thoroughly enjoyed what I've read so far. I'm adding you to my list, so I'll be back...=)
from nevr-perfect :
Hey there, thanks for your note! Knowing that there is someone out there that knows how I feel wishes me better makes me feel a WHOLE lot better. Thanks, serena, you're the best! :)
from niceguymike :
I totally loved the "crazy thinking" site. Yeah, I've wondered about some of that stuff. And other parts of it made me wonder ...
from kitchenwitch :
sorry about that! I emailed you the password... blessings!

i am dying for your take on the britney ho-down. dying! so like, post already. xoxo, d
from niceguymike :
Likewise, I'm sure. Just for you, I'll try to do something, uh, super. Soon.
from im2evil4u :
I'll try calling you tomorrow evening while The Husband is at band practice.
from p-o-y :
Welcome to Pieces Of You!
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note and the well wishes. It helps to know someone understands you...
from saladwhore :
You are *so* welcome, I'm glad my comments helped. Sometimes things are much easier to understand when you can see the other side of the coin. :-) I'm glad too that i didn't step on any toes. I hope your little girl has a WONDERFUL preschool experience! *hugs back*
from cyanideeyes :
Nah, I'm fine: realization took place, that's all. At this point in time, minus the severe mental and physical exhaustion, things are peachy-keen!!! Omigod - did I really just say "peachy-keen?" Slap me. HARD.
from under-yuki :
Thank you! I didn't think you were intentionally neglecting me, no worries! Now I have to start going into the chat, too... oh my. And there are things to catch up on indeed. On both sides. Hope things calm down for you soon!
from rue25 :
Hey girl... thanks for the great comment. I feel so amazing right now. It's interesting what a change in address and outlook does for a person. {{hugs}} I'm hopefully going to be far more interesting in my little slice of dland from now on.
from cyanideeyes :
I went and looked, the closest place I can find the BV is in Colorado Springs, which is about and hour-and-a-half away, and there's no way in hell I'm gonna be able to find someone willing to drive me up there.
from widyaz :
Thank you for your note. It touched me. Love you.
from hamiltonian :
Your a ton of fun! Love the Watterson art...
from im2evil4u :
What ever do you mean? Repeatedly? Me? Never, ever, ever. :D I'm working out the details now. We're only 4 &1/2 hours away. Not too bad. I'll talk to The Husband tonight when he gets home from band practice.
from supermom3604 :
Thanks for stopping by! Sounds like you have your hands full. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
from widyaz :
I'm sorry, hon, I cannot possibly vote between Journey and ZZ Top, not when I cannot even name one song from either! Don't hate me! *sheepish grin*
from dalyrical1 :
i can't believe after all the diaries we share that this is the first time i ran into you. you fucking rock! i have to add you to my list...
from ubergurl :
So glad you popped in for a gander. Thanks for the kind words. Actually, I don't remember the exact spot that propelled me into your world. I've just taken to checking the favorite diaries of my favorite diarists (is that a word?). I imagine you are linked to one of the folks on my profile page...if not several. I'm really enjoying my visits to serenaville. ~ubergurl
from supershan :
So glad you're back!! You can't even imagine how much I've missed you!! I hope you get well very quickly. Good luck! *HUGS!*
from xnavygrrl :
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Alice Cooper.
from im2evil4u :
Thanks for letting me know, The Husband didn't and if you hadn't mentioned it I would have never known. MEN! I'll give you a call on Monday night. Sorry about that. Hugs back at'cha! Talk to you then.
from widyaz :
I miss you a lot. Hope you're ok.
from rainforme :
well, thanks serena. i get picky about my lists and you just hadn't written in awhile, so i figured you jumped ship like a lot of d-landers. write again and you'll be back on. just let me know. hope the new city is grand. take care.
from ehadams :
Thank you so much for the lovely birthday wishes! *hugs*
from cyanideeyes :
You are SO missed. I keep meaning to write you, but then I get to the blank e-mail screen and my mind freezes. Bah, humbug.
from idiot-milk :
I know how you feel! If I weren't already me, I would totally want to BE me, too! Heh. (I think it's my modesty that attracts people to me.) I tell you what, though, we're in the process of obtaining yet ANOTHER arcade game, and THIS one is even COOLER than the other two. STAR WARS! THE ORIGINAL STAR WARS! EEEE! If we get that one? I don't think technology has the means to measure how cool we'll be at that point, I really don't.
from im2evil4u :
Darling, I'm sorry I wasn't able to call you either last night ot tonight. I will definatley call tomorrow night between bouts of packing for both the husband and I. I promise.
from widyaz :
Do you actually live in New York? Still? I had to re-read your Cast entry to refresh my not-quite-elephantine memory after you left that delightful note. Meet up! Sure! Glad you suggested it! *grin*
from im2evil4u :
P.S. I'll call you one day this week before we leave. Either Monday or Tuesday, k?
from dragonwench :
*smoochies* love!
from cyanideeyes :
Awwwwww, well thank you hun. We'll see what happens, that's for sure. Insane amounts of hugs to ya for being such a dear friend.
from coltpixy :
Damn right that you aren't going anywhere missy. *G* BTW thanks for the great comment, it's nice to have such great support from friends about it. *HUGS* looking forward to getting the digits from ya.
from cyanideeyes :
Just figured I'd drop by and say whattup. You know. "Whattup!!!" I've got this idea for something mildy fun, we'll talk more about it later, promise.
from rue25 :
Hey... thanks for the little note. It made me smile!
from under-yuki :
I miss you, I really do. I'm going to be all mushy and stuff, Coolmom. And if I ever get you alone for a few minutes I have a world of things to tell you like the pathetic little girl I am. Fear the day! *Hug*
from widyaz :
Hey you. Just for you I decided to add background colour to my text area so that it's easier to read. I find it quite hard to read my entries against the water background myself, but I thought it looked cooler like that. But heck, our eyesights are more important! love, widya
from oldmaid :
truth be told, i stole the snowflake quote from my fiance! heheheh.
from widyaz :
Thanks for mentioning me in your entry! *Hugs* Well, now that I know you're anal about cleaning, all I can say is I hope the house looks fab by the time you're done. ;-) (Mine is in perpetual state of organized chaos)
from augustdreams :
Found you through irishblueyes! :) You know, lack of junior mints can be hazardous to your health. So can cranky wombats. I like your writing. I'll most definitely be back for more.
from under-yuki :
And SOME people happen to LIKE my new layout. Pshaw.
from cyanideeyes :
Pfft. Ain't no thang, I'm sure you're hellaciously busy right now, and priorities must be taken care of. I'm not going anywhere, take all the time you need.
from irishblueyes :
Thanks so much for your note in the guestbook. I'm thrilled that you'll be reading. And I just wanted to say thank you for actually replying to my note. It seems that so many diarylanders just ignore notes that others leave them. Hope you had a great weekend and I look forward to more reading.
from irishblueyes :
Just wanted to say hi, I found your diary like I seem to find all the others, through the strange winding road that is buddylist to buddylist meandering and mutual favorites. But I'm thankful to have made it to your wonderful little town, and hope you don't mind my having a look around! Love your survey a few entries back by the way...hysterical. ~ Kristina
from poolagirl :
Thanks for the story about the "dead" hooker! HOW FUNNY!
from under-yuki :
http://under-yuki.diaryland.com/blankfriend.html (You better do it back, too!)
from supershan :
How is the moving going? Well, I hope, so you can return! I'm missing my Mother Hen!
from widyaz :
I miss you! Can't wait for your return.:-)
from im2evil4u :
Now, you know I was thinking "gee, if we only had stopped at Costco before this...." Too funny! I'll be calling you later tonight after my bout with the treadmill, say 7:00?
from kitchenwitch :
Well thank you for that... I am hoping the hospital won't be necessary, but if I HAVE to go I think I WILL try to think of it as a hotel... ;) Thank you so much for your kind words! ~blessings~
from karaokekatey :
yeah, in my opinion there is nothing more arduous than purchasing a home. There were moments when i thought that perhaps the street was the place to be! hahaha. Take care.
from supershan :
Yay! You're back after a week of neglecting us (*sniffle*)! haha, it hasn't been quite the same. And ugh, I never want to move. Your trials sound quite arduous. Yuck. At least when I move in August, I'll already have my place arranged and the minimal paper work done. Oh dear, I nearly forgot! Thanks for the graduation wishes, though I'm not quite free yet, I still have to go 3.5 more days. Then freedom shall really be mine! Mwuhahaha!
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note about my new layout. I needed something fresh. Oh, and I know I'm just catching up, but why would someone put grass clippings in your car? Ew!!!!
from coltpixy :
**HUGS** Thank you SO much for the lovely Mother's Day thoughts, as well as the wonderful comment about all that I have been dealing with with No. You are a warm and wonderful person and I am honored to call you my friend. *HUGS*

LOL. I got your comments via email so I think something is all hinky somewhere. FREAKY. Anyway… just sent you an email.
from poolagirl :
GAAAAAAAAAAA HA HA HA! I still can't believe people thought I was gonna pee on stage! Your comments on my comments on my entry are just too much! GACK! I can be such a ninny!
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks so much for the Mother's Day wishes. It means a lot to me. :)
from mysdevious :
I shall await your email paitently. The the user name for mysdevious2(mysdevious is now open to the public once again) is love the password is the same as the old one. No juicy stuff in there yet though.
from kitchenwitch :
Aaaww thank you! and happy mother's day to you as well!
from widyaz :
Thanks for your note. A toast, from one survivor to another, to our beautiful new lives! *hugs*
from mysdevious :
I'm emailing you at your hotmail addy.........I'd never lock you out on purpose, I just done it this morning. Things got really personal and not in a good way.
from karaokekatey :
Thanks for mentioning me in your current entry. You always manage to make me laugh. xoxo
from karaokekatey :
I've read a lot of your entries and you're fantastic. I laughed my ass off reading your profile page. It sounds a little like my life at the moment. Oh, and feel free to use whatever code you want or questionaire. Take care.
from widyaz :
hey, how come my name doesn't appear in the list of Graces (but it does in your profile)? (or have I gone blind? yikes). anyway, thanks so much for your note, I love you!!! and can I help perpetuate that thing you did with Iron Maiden in your blog, pretty please?
from coltpixy :
You are so very welcome ... you are worth all the shouting out that I can do, because I so *heart* your diary (and you yourself of course) oh what did you send me now? *HUGS* you are too sweet for words. And yes there will be pictures of everything we have done, soon.
from kitchenwitch :
Too funny... James prefers Riley. I don't have a preference to spelling... I jsut like how it sounds... This one is definitly going in the keeper basket... Its my favorite now, but then again, I've got about ten weeks to go... Who knows what the poor child will end up with! ~bless~
from widyaz :
oh you know I'll be back, girl, don't you doubt it! Thanks for the note. Glad you like the layout!
from supershan :
I'm glad to know that you understood my reactions. People tend to just think I'm overly sensitive. Oh well. Thanks for the note. And, er, the nickname. Snoochie boochies, eh? I suppose I can live with that, any nickname from my dear Mother Hen is lovely. :)
from needisaymore :
It's actually not that The Soph's car insurance goes up if he doesn't have a B avg, but he would get a nice discount if he has a B avg. And insuring a 16 yr old male driver is EXPENSIVE!!!! Hang in there with those hot flashes. . . and welcome to the club I guess!
from xnavygrrl :
At least the guy has a sense of humor. Poor dude..
from widyaz :
Happy anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think the cotton roses are cute.
from hissandtell :
Okay, I just added you to my favourites to bump up your stats again. Jeesh, stop whining. I bumped someone else to fit you on my list, too. Yeah, I know, I've been going to add you for ages, but I kept getting distracted...Love, R xxx
from poolagirl :
Oh, honey, please know that I will NEVER un-fave you! You are just too damn funny!
from widyaz :
Darling, your "long-winded note" made my day. Thank you so much! To answer your question, my dream is to be a writer, and I find that I can't teach and write at the same time, cos day job takes too much time and energy from me. That's why it's been so frustrating. Hey, go on and send that inspirational parable, if it's from you I'd read it! And that quote from 'Clerks' was a hoot! I love 'Clerks'. Filthy-funny, just the way I like my comedies. TTYL. *Kisses*
from mysdevious :
Ok, I'll try to explain. He's coming home and someone is picking him up from the airport and they're leaving to go to GA, perfect timing eh? Depending on the condition of the person, ok its his grandfather. He doesn't know how long he'll be there. He's home now for 40 something days, well thats how long he will be here. Then he has to report to Japan. Im not going because my mother is getting married the next month and that'd be a waste of alot of money since I'll end up paying for 1 round trip and 1 one way ticket. Got it so far? Ok so, depending on the turn his grandfather takes he could be back in less than a week or he could be there for all of his 40 days. So, Im playing it by ear, although he probably wont be gone for anything other than a few days, its just really stressing knowing we're delayed in seeing each other again. Hope I didnt lose you "Bunka Bunka" lol. I have to tell my mother that there's another child being tortured with that name as well.
from anonadada72 :
Thanks so much for the note. I was feelin' the love and the solidarity in our similar tales. It helped pull me out of a strange, melancholy mood. So, gracias, chica!!! ~Jess.
from under-yuki :
Yes, indeed! And why aren't you on mIRC?! Why?! How lonely am I?!
from pandionna :
Crud. Now both our teams are out. So, I'd like to see a Montreal-Calgary Cup series. But I'm guessing it's going to be Toronto and Colorado. Not that I'm BETTING, mind you...
from widyaz :
Don't you worry about your blog stats now, I read your blog every day, or at least whenever I'm at work Mon-Fri because that's where I get free internet access. *grin* Multi-tasker Extraordinaire is moi. Have a good weekend, babe!
from poolagirl :
You are just the sweetest! Thanks so much for your nice note!
from pandionna :
Oh gawd, I hate both teams. How about we bet that no matter who wins, I'll hate'em?
from mysdevious :
Chop Chop alright lady lets get moving.. I've taken your advice and ran with it. It couldn't have come at a better time(although it came a few days before I actually read it). Jay will be home on the 7th at 6:29am Im sure you can guess who wont be getting any sleep the night before, or after lol. Its a good thing I took your advice otherwise I'd be in a sea of trouble right now. So I must first say thanks for the encouraging words and CHOP CHOP, lets get moving, Im here to motivate you to get some things done before you look up and the landlord is saying Mrs. Mook I've been forced to take your keys as your time here is up.
from widyaz :
Just returned from reading your blog. Oh my god, I'm still blushing from the warm welcome! Thank you so much! Serenaville sure is a cool place to be.
from widyaz :
Thanks for your encouraging words, dearie. It made a difference to me. Hope you had a good Easter weekend (have not read your blog at this point and sorry in advance if I learn right after this that you didn't).
from poolagirl :
Oh, Mr. Ree-dee-coo-luss can't hurt me! Never! Actually, I went through a special training about six years ago to learn how to NOT react to people like this. It was hard at first, but now I'm very used to it. It worked. He didn't hit me. I consider that a win, because I know he really wanted to! Thanks for your support - LOVE your work!
from cyanideeyes :
Tee hee hee, I know both "Fade to Black" and "For Whom the Bell Tolls." I'll rock 'em out for ya when I get home - wait, I brought my guitar to work. I'll rock out on my next break!!!
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note and the sweet sentiments. Sometimes I forget that when I do an interview it's MY life I'm talking about, not someone else's. It can get weird.
from under-yuki :
Of course a cutie! She's related to me! (It's true. My whole family with the exception of myself is incredibly hot. It cannot be missed!) Haha. Her name's Sofia Tamami. I love her. Gerber!
from mom-on-roof :
Thank you dahhhling!
from ms-do :
Oh i have to point out that i did your little quiz thing and i read it on fluidlife and i said it was hers. So sorry about that but thanks for the quiz and the read of your diary. Clare
from im2evil4u :
I just remembered that I have to stop by our favorite restaurant this evening, after work. The bartender is leaving and I wanted to stop by after work. Figure you'll hear from me closer to 10:00 than 9:00 like I said last night. Let me know if that is too late.
from kitchenwitch :
I am so glad someone understands how I feel! And let me add, I love hearing from you... You always have something interesting to say! Blessed Be!
from cyanideeyes :
Awwwww, I miss you too hun *hugs* Nope, there are none in New York, thankfully. I've always wanted to see the place, too. Hmmmmm...*ponders*
from widyaz :
Hey thanks for giving me citizenship of serenaville! I read your blog too. I love your sense of humour. :-)
from im2evil4u :
No, no, no. It was great! I was joking and secretly seeking revenge for the Pink and Norm Mac Donald commments. Really.
from fluidlife :
Funny you should point that out. Daylight "Savings" Time is one of my pet peeves. I almost pointed it out in my entry, but I was too tired to make the effort! Ha!
from xnavygrrl :
http://www.ksdk.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=55023 That's the interview I did in February. There's actually a picture of my attacker on the page. They haven't updated yet to do Friday's interview, but I'm hoping it's up soon.
from rue25 :
Thank you thank you thank you for the "gift". That was really a surprise this morning! Of course I'll say... you didn't have to but thank you so much.
from dragonwench :
yay! thanks. :) I think I might actually keep this one. *hee*
from under-yuki :
So where's that prom picture, huh? Huh huh? *Poke*
from poolagirl :
Awwwwwwwwwwww......shucks............
from poolagirl :
We Pink Box Donut Girls have to stick together, you know. YAY!
from needisaymore :
No "culprit" title needed! I thought it was VERY cool to hear from someone in Dublin and thank you for directing him my way! I love how the internet connects us all. I just have major paranoia about someone searching to find me as that caused MAJOR problems between my hubby and I (all detailed in a previous diary). I love community feeling we share in diaryland. So no problem!!
from supershan :
Thank you, you really do help me out. I'm close to tears all the time right now as it is, but your note made me tear up. Thanks for understanding and sending positive-ness. You're the best.
from mysdevious :
((Hugs)) my dear. I know its super stressing with the unexpected things. Sometimes I wish I could just close my eyes and wish them away but it seems as if we only work to pay bills. With that being said do you think if we stop making money the bills will go away?? Well, if you want to talk just email me or we can chat on Yahoo.
from xnavygrrl :
Thanks for the note. I'm so glad this is over with so I can quit dwelling on being sad. Oh, and Mr. Pistachio is a nickname. The man's name is really Mr. Pistako. I just love to make up nicknames.
from under-yuki :
*Giggle* I am SO sorry if it appeared I was aiming it specifically at you. But look: "I didn't go to my prom either, eh... you aren't missing out on anything, believe me! Hope you feel better soon, sweetie **HUG!** " "Man, my prom was miserable. It was definitely not worth going to. You should figure out how much $$ you saved by not going to the prom, and buy yourself something awesome." Those were just on the notes page. God forbid I count the instant message consolations I got. Trust me, it wasn't you. (I still do want those pictures, though.) Don't hate me! *Hug*
from fluidlife :
I am so far behind! I just got your note about the Lutheran church. I'm not even sure when you left it. The thing about the Lord's Prayer... I think that's a general protestant thing. In the Methodist Church (that I attended in my youth) we also said the last part..."for thine is the kingdom, and the power, etc... "and I too have been caught mumbling at Catholic weddings. I am so far behind on reading your diary... I don't even know what's going on with you, but I swear I'm going to get caught up with everyone after April 6! Have a great week.
from leebozeebo :
My pirate hat and rugged manliness both thank you. And also me. I thank you, too.
from pandionna :
Hilarious! "If it were Easy Mac, everyone would be doing it." I'm rolling!
from widyaz :
Thanks for visiting my diary. :-) Have to run off for my lesson now but I'll be dropping by at yours before my day ends. TTYL.
from ebokian :
Thanks for the note! I'll definately be stopping by on a regular basis. I've added you as a favorite.
from under-yuki :
I'm sorry if I frightened you. But I'm telling you it was WIERD. WIERD, I say! And of course I would be upset if you died. And I get what you're saying. Let us pray then, shall we? If not for you, then for my sanity.
from needisaymore :
Thank you for including me as a favorite! I am very honored! I'm just home from a loooong trip, but I'll be catching up with your life soon.
from im2evil4u :
I really had no clue that everyone though I had composed that brilliant piece of work, I felt horrible about it after quickly glanced at the comments. But I thank you for allowing me the privilege of keeping the tiara after that miscommunication. I wish you the best of luck this weekend. I too have spent many nights looking for the perfect home for The Husband and I. Obviously, we ended up staying where we are. But during that nightmare, I realized that you must go with your gut, no matter how good or bad a place seems. Like the Banana Bungalow, for example..
from xnavygrrl :
Thank you so much for the kind words. I really appreciate that you took the time to write something so heartfelt and nice about me. I guess I'm going to start having to recognize the good things about myself from now on. I can't be having days like that one too often.
from coltpixy :
hehehe ... well I'm glad you like being damned by me, because I'm doing it again. As for the monkey thing, I collect monkeys. Lots of stuffed ones and have a monkey tattoo as well. (I was born in the year of the monkey) As for colour it would be a toss up between my mini red crackle glass pitcher or my vaseline glass cat.
from caela :
When is the trip? I don't know. When do you want it to be? :)
from caela :
Haha! Don't worry. While I am seen by some as odd for my love of roughing it in the outdoors, I like the lap of luxury too. When engaging in activities such as touring Niagara wineries, my accomodation of choice is definitely the luxurious B&B!
from xnavygrrl :
What you said about me made me all misty. I'm so humbly taking this all in. Awww! I feel the love!
from everoboto :
Hey there, thanks for the comment and for adding me as a favorite. I can see from your profile that you're a smart chick with great taste. I just read one of your entries where you talk about St. Joseph's Day and I agree with you. I think it should be as huge as St. Patrick's Day and everyone should wear red, and the world should view that as the Italian holiday, NOT Columbus Day. Anyhow, I look forward to reading you. \m/
from poolagirl :
OMG! OMG! You are NOT going to believe this, but while I was sitting here waiting for your profile page to open, I was humming "wasted away in serenaville...." I am NOT kidding! You are a true delight! I can't wait to get my eyes on the rest of your diary - only had a chance for brief howdy this morning. Thanks for stopping by my world - YO HO!
from im2evil4u :
Welcome home, Ms. Serena. How did house hunting go?
from cyanideeyes :
Well thank you for the note, hun!!! Honestly, it wasn't even close to my best, but it came from my soul unedited, unstifled, and unhindered. I'm glad you like it - perhaps you're ready for the world of the "Cyanide Bible." Basically, it's where all my lyrics/poems go, as well as some of my rantings and philosophies. I'd be more than happy to share, just lemme know. I SO appreciate your kindness and uplifting words. You are by far one of my favorite people ever.
from xnavygrrl :
Sorry. I'm reading back over your older entries. That house is GORGEOUS! I'm so jealous.
from xnavygrrl :
Try not to laugh: In my pregnant hysterical insanity I considered naming my baby: Seraphina. I believe the angel book said they were the highest rank of angels surrounding the throne of God. Well, we named her Jacquelyn. Oh, and I have an entire family of people who've crossed that line in religion. Trust me, I've lived amongst them my whole life as the unholy black sheep of the family. Nice meeting you. I'm going to mark you as a favorite.
from mysdevious :
Awww, Serena Im sorry. That guestbook needs more than just a bitchslap. Jay's been trying to leave a private message in my guestbook for about 2 weeks now but to no avail. Im going to have to fix that or get a new one. Im going to try to venture into the chat room later today or this week, who knows. I might even become a resident like our dear friend Assasin that way Im promised to catch you in there ONE DAY. My relationship is on cloud nine, I'll tell you about it better than the entry when I catch you in the room. Take care
from im2evil4u :
HA! Jug handles! HA! Another ploy to get people lost, and ultimately stop buy gas or have a bite to eat in an effort to get directions. A sneaky tactic to support the economy. No wonder the school system is so good in New Jersey.
from im2evil4u :
I'm about 30 miles from Carlstadt and 35 from Totowa, but I will keep it in mind. I don't go into Jersey often since the highway & street signs are mind numbingly retarded and make me nuts. Only for YOU and twenty pound bags of Iams cat food, will I venture into New Jersey.
from mysdevious :
Woo hoo!!! Kudos to Serena, I just got your note and you're right. We need to sit down and have a heart to heart talk even if it is only on the phone. I called and I told him this and he agrees but we'll have to do it after he gets out of class today since Im leaving and he has to be in class at 7:30 so later we'll have that good talk. I'll let you know the outcome. Thanks for the hug because I really needed that.
from idiot-milk :
Thanks, doll. I was about to say "Thanks for your support", but then I felt like Bartles and James, or some cheesy politician. But thank you all the same. I think at this point, I thrive on life-suckage. I don't think I would know how to act if things were calm and peaceful. But it's cool; the situation will be resolved and things will work out eventually. I just needed to vent a moment before entering into the battle.
from supershan :
Thanks for the note and your concern. I would have fought back had I not been wearing nothing but a robe. I was a little worried it might fly off. ;) He knows better than to hit women (but to him, sisters don't count as women) and I think if he had not been a pathological liar about the whole thing he may have been punished with more than just a scolding. Thanks for the note, good to have someone on my side. And happy house hunting!
from mysdevious :
Thanks for the compliment on my clock. I shall not be deprived of my Hello Kitty like the things. If I every come to my page and its gone I know who to come get, lol. J/k you should adopt one for yourself, she'll look very nice on your page and for once it wont be a Hello Kitty item borrowed from the things.
from im2evil4u :
:D enjoy your trip home and good luck house hunting. Do you have a verdict on the front steps of the Banana Bungalow?
from caela :
Heya. If you want to check out the desk, use my postal code: N2L 3G1. (It's not actually my REAL postal code, for all you stalkers out there...but it will work.) I looooove Ikea. I'm a big fan of contemporary-type furniture. If you go back an entry or two in my diary, I linked to a pic of the shelves I have. Too lazy to look it up right now. :p And yes, the stores ARE huge. Plan to spend at *least* three hours, and wear comfortable shoes! Have a good trip this weekend!
from supershan :
No extradition! Whoppee! ;) And not to worry bout the blood, I managed to drown out the girlfiend's voice with some good old rock. The Banana Bungalow's carpet is safe from me! Well that is until my naturally spaztic self kicks in and I trip and spill something everywhere. *HUG*
from cyanideeyes :
Oh yeah, I never would have seen you as patronizing. Honestly, if you think I'm doing something worth informing me of how proud you are, don't hesitate for a second to let me know - it's what keeps me going in the right direction.
from cyanideeyes :
Nah, don't even worry about the mini-book in my notes, it was more than okay. I spurted a lil reading it too. Thank you so much for the hearfelt comments, it totally kept me in a good mood all day long, which doesn't bother me one bit.
from leebozeebo :
It isn't up to me. Cosmo says I'm all about small breasts and ghettolicious booties now. I don't make the damn rules around here. But if I did, they would involve women having to bend at the waist to pick up stuff that I drop.
from cyanideeyes :
Banana Bungalow. That's AWESOME!!! Your space is always a very interesting read, and if I'm in a crappy mood it's immediately beaten down by your exceptionally hilarious wit. I'm also doing some Copacabana research, I'm so excited!!!
from candoor :
wow, there are a lot of notes since I left my reminder to myself... thank you for reminding me about my reminder, I am writing this note to remind myself to remember that reminder again... if we keep this up, something might actually happen :)
from idiot-milk :
No worries, babydoll, I have to keep the retail job in a part-time capacity for at least the time being. So it will be a while before I can fully abandon the mall of my discontent. I'll give you plenty of time to adjust, I swear!
from supershan :
Thanks for the note, I found your metaphors to be just about perfect. :) All I'm feeling right now could just be me being stupid, I actually cried during a Mastercard commercial tonight. It was about a lost puppy! *sniffle* Anyhoo, thanks ever so much for the note, you're the best.
from lifeasme66 :
I didn't know where to leave this, but I just wanted to say "thanks" for advertising my survey on your site! Hehe, you've increased my hit count tremendously!! Now everyone knows what a nut your lil sis is... =P <HUG!>
from snarkypants :
1. My own Mt. Baldy has the shaved head/goatee thing going on. Infinitely preferable to the scary comb-over. 2. Patrick Stewart. Yeeeeesssssssss! Oh, yes, yes, yes.... 3. That is all, madam!
from pandionna :
I've been seeing your name all over the place (in a good way) and have come by to discover your recent birthday. Happy birthday! 35 is a good one. In fact, I still catch myself saying, "For heaven's sake, I'm 35. I'm too old for this." Wait, that didn't come out right. What I mean is, yes, happy birthday! Signed, A 37-year-old
from cyanideeyes :
You are too funny. "Though, if people are truly only as young as they feel, then I am eternally 18. Booyah." Awesome. Yes, I also figure that 21 is pretty much the peak of everything, then it all goes downhill like a rollercoaster that knocks you out once you hit the top, waking periodically to go "Holy shit, I missed the last 2 years! Whatthehell?!" But anyway, now that I'm done rambling - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! *sorry, had to do it*
from fluidlife :
Where are you?! Life in Diaryland is kinda quiet when Serenaville's not hopping.
from under-yuki :
I keep missing you in the chat! It's insane! I want very much to talk to you again! *Hug*
from cyanideeyes :
Awwwwww, thank you for the linkage, hun. You're on mine too, in case you didn't notice. I'm slick like that, what can I say? I also appreciate the comment in your profile, that's so sweet hun, thank you!!! Anyway, I hope your V-Day rocked the socks off, and thank you for everything. Your benevolence is very appreciated on this end.
from lifeasme66 :
Dearest Big sis, I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's weekend! I thought of you! Can't wait til the next time we speak =) <KISS!>
from leftunspoken :
Happy Valentine's Day. You are utterly, obviously loved. Have a wonderful trip princess pretty head. Love, M.
from lifeasme66 :
Oh Big Sis! Don't worry about the phone call, I was worried that I woke the babies!! Have a great time back home, we'll talk when you get back =) <HUG KISS HUG>
from coltpixy :
*HUGS* ack at ya ... thank you so much for the sweet notes that you left me. First off, yes you need to start Pandionna, she is a goddess of writing and rants. Secondly, the way that I am getting the fat off while building my muscle mass is because I am on my feet at the store 4 to 6 hours a day, and so my legs are firming up from that, plus there are the days that I work in the stockroom breaking down the shipments we get. All in all it's always busy, busy.
from lifeasme66 :
"You have no power here. So begone, before someone drops a house on you, too." HAHAHA! I love it! One of my most favorite movies of all time =) <KISS!>
from cyanideeyes :
Awwwww, anytime hun. I'll hafta stop by the chat room and visit one of these days soon, whenever Qwest gets their rears in gear and get some internet connectivity going at my house again.
from cyanideeyes :
Today's entry was complete and total genuis. From S-I-L-E-N-C-E, to the letter from sanity, I just have to say it was all brilliant. I also noticed today (sad, isn't it?) that you had "Clerks" as one of your fav movies. That rocks SO hard. I was also reading "The Authoritative Calvin and Hobbes" and so many of those comics made me think of you. But anyway, I'll shut up now.
from rainforme :
thanks serena, it was a wonderfully well received hug and a much needed one.
from mysdevious :
Thanks for the link Serena. Thats more of what I needed, another smack of reality. That article indeed made me decide against the card (yes I said I was in the diary but hey its tempting). I know I tend to have some *minor* shopping problems and going to Japan doesnt help them at all. Now, when we get back from Japan in 3 years I'll have you to thank when we apply for a loan to build our house and we actually get approved. Im going to cut my credit cards down slowly but surely (to 1 for emergencies) like I've been doing because I know they're not good especially for a woman with my shopping "habits".
from under-yuki :
Oh, thank you for your words. Really, the stress around here is thick enough to swim in. I have been trying to catch you in the chat, but you never seem to be there... Hope we get to talk again! (I have no idea about the orange thing...things. Nor is my mind registering the poker name. Maybe that's just because the stress is clouding everything. Damned 80s music tests...)
from caela :
Just for the record, we don't usually dress like that. We normally wear much more mundane stuff. :) And the show finished tonight, so Chris shaved his beard off. I'm sad, I'd gotten used to it.
from mare-ingenii :
Thanks, dollface.
from cyanideeyes :
I totally dug today's entry, especially the whole court theme, and what beat all of that was the Charlie Brown vid, I had a pretty good laugh. Thanks for brightening my day a lil bit!!!
from idiot-milk :
Oh dear. My heart goes out to you, my friend. At least with cats, they haven't got opposable thumbs, and when we close the door to the bathroom, that thwarts their nighttime doorstop game. But kids, they've got the opposable thumb action hardcore. Man. My heart REALLY goes out to you.
from caela :
Hey there...the balcony view isn't really that great. I was angling the shot upwards to get the icicles, so all you can see is the tree. Beyond the tree is a four-lane road and an ugly plaza. Thank God for the tree! And yes, Chris does look like a keeper, hehe. As for chat tonight, no can do! It's production week for FASS...we open tonight! I won't have time in the evenings until oh, next week.
from lifeasme66 :
Doh! We missed each other again! That's ok, I like to check and see if anyone will come on. I think I'm a little short changed, being out here on the West Coast. You all are asleep by the time I finish dinner! My interviews keep me out most of the day anyway, so I haven't been on as much as I'd like to be. We will talk soon! And thanks for the note you left!! I'm gonna go catch me a good man ;) <kiss kiss!>
from dragonwench :
I have corel draw, and I have a cool font that looks like tribal designs, so I just typed a few letters really big and made them transparent and faded and tweaked the ones on the far side of my face to look in perspective-ish. it was fun. :D
from supershan :
I'm sorry that happened! I laughed but I'm still sorry. :) At least yellow is a pretty color?
from dragonwench :
ps: at least it wasn't red! that would have been really scary!!!
from dragonwench :
*huggles!!* heh heh. I just typed 'huggles'. that is a funny word. *snicker*
from panjandrum :
I can't really take credit for the idea of using a javascript alert to define words in an entry. I used to use the alerts as an introduction. They would pop up when the page opened automatically. I lifted the idea to use the alerts for definitions from Cyborgirl (www.cyborgirl.com). So if anyone deserves credit, I suppose it's her. I like them too. The only thing is that I never bothered to memorize the code. So whenever I do it I have to copy and paste from an earlier entry, and sometimes they can be hard to find. Good luck!

Heya...thanks for the comment. Just letting you know, I'm not expecting to be around the chat room much this week, except for during the day. It's show week, so I'm all booked up in the evenings. So don't worry about me when you don't hear from me much. I'm doing alright. I know I sounded really down in my entry earlier...it's because I WAS...but I'm feeling a bit better now.
from gumphood :
I haven't heard from you lately...you okay?
from rainforme :
thanks for the congrats. your two cents are much appreciated. it's too bad i'm so attracted to neanderthals.
from supershan :
You are welcome, though I am sorry for your girls that I spilled the beans. Though we laugh about it now, the punishment my mother devised for that weekend was quite horrid. Besides, how pathetic am I? Confessing in my sleep, honestly.
from under-yuki :
I DID IT! I'M IN! Oh, maybe I DO have a brain! HAHA!
from under-yuki :
And it works! Oh, who's genius?! [Not me] The e-mail arrived. One of them, anyway. I think I actually managed to fix ONE THING on my own, and now, to quote my friend in her favorite saying, "That has worth." Huzzah!
from lifeasme66 :
Ah, my lovely serena has left yet another *FUN* survey for me to blatantly borrow... hehehe! Oh, if it bothers you that I keep ganking ideas from your site, please PLEASE tell me! They are just so fun, and give me plenty to write about when I'm experiencing typer's block. =T Mmmm, I share your penchant for Jr Mints... I can relate to your cravings! My last box melted in my car, so so sad... I stuck it in the freezer and then cut the box away from the poor, frozen block of smooshed mints. Mmmm, it was an instant Jr Mint granola bar! <kiss!>
from under-yuki :
Thank you! Well, I didn't know my hotmail address didn't work, but I tampered with it and you can try again! (I am being awfully perky for the rage building up inside me. Is that healthy so early in life?) Hugs! Whoo! *Hug*
from under-yuki :
Ugh. My e-mail is indeed going wonky. And other than some serious problems lately that have caused my computer, absence, I think II'm pretty okay right now. With everything. (Not really) Oh, and I have no idea about this whole chat business, really. I use whatever works, whatever's easiest, and whatever my little brain can understand, basically. So suggest, or something, because I am lost and writing hate-mail to Walgreens. Just put it in my notes, or something, until my e-mail stops being a bitch. Thanks!
from gumphood :
If you go to my rings page, you will see why I didn't answer the question. I have one. that I didn't start.
from gumphood :
Here are my 2 problems. My computer at ome is broken --video card-- and I have to wait a while for it to get fixed. This means I cannot get the Mirc, because I only check D-land at work which is where I am, so you see the problem... but I didn't want to whine about a busted computer.
from lifeasme66 :
*crunch* *crunch* Dang, I must need sleep!
from lifeasme66 :
Ooh! Many many thanks for adding me to your list of faves and mentioning me in your diary! =) *Bowing graciously* such an honor! The survey was long, but it was fun... thanks for posting it so that I could blatantly borrow it from you <kiss!> I miss my Big Wheels *cruch* *cruch* =P
from gerg69 :
No I'm using safari right now. I'll try internet exlorer when I get home. I saw some some words in your entry but not enough to make a coherant message, but enough to make me wonder what you were talking about. I'll be bahk. yes I meant bahk.
from leftunspoken :
Glad you got the email. I've tried 100 times to leave you a note to see if you got it, but work keeps distracting. Write back so I know which phone # to use. Love you so much. All positive energy from you greatly appreciated. Know it's returned sevenfold. I wish you every joy, every moment of the day. You are so loved.
from gerg69 :
thanks for coming by, I wanted to read your stie but it's all kinds of screwey right now. Maybe it's my browser. By the way Like the Calvin header.....miss that kid in the paper
from rainforme :
thank you serena. my inner rantings get the best of me at times... but it's comforting to know they click somewhere. i'm eating junior mints in your honor. uh, though in light of your last entry... maybe i shouldn't be telling you that. :)
from nevr-perfect :
Hi! I just wanted to say thanks for your support during that nasty shower-camera thing. They think they might know who it is, which makes me feel better! Anyways, thanks for your well-wishes on my notes page too! It's people like you who have the power to make people feel all nice and bubbly inside. (Not bubbly as in gassy, but...aw, you get it the picture!) -Nevr-Perfect
from dragonwench :
blah, you can HAVE capain stinky. (mr. bloom) give me justin any damn day of the wee. multiple times. over and over....yeah. you get the point. ;)
from fargahar :
go to my diary profile and click on "diaryrings that fargahar belongs to" and click the link from there.
from supershan :
"Bubble" does seem an appropriate term. I amused my mother when after I burped this evening I giggled and asked her to excuse my bubble. She also agreed to its suitability.
from under-yuki :
Well then, apparently, clicking on random names in the members directory DOES pay off. I am incredibly amused. I feel that anyone that made me laugh as much as I did deserves some "Random props." And there they are. Thank you for making me laugh.
from fargahar :
Joining rings is easy and there really isn't anything to it. You just go to the diaryrings diretory and search the rings to findones for stuff you like. Then you just click on join. You can read other diaries in the ring if you like but you odn't have to. They all have html snippets that you put into your diary. I suggest just having them all on one page and then creating a link to it on your main page. :)
from fargahar :
Members are always welcome. Funny though...many people confessed their stat whoredom to me and only 2 of them joined.....
from supershan :
Thanks, I don't blame you for laughing about the bug. I'm usually a *little* braver than that. Thanks for the note, you made my day. :)
from caela :
Hey, thanks for the heads-up about assassin. Too bad you had to do the quick-edit but he seems like a cool guy. Certainly a useful guy to have around.
from fluidlife :
Hi. The lock is only temporary. I will reopen for business sometime tomorrow. Thanks for checking with me!
from cyanideeyes :
Yep. So like, I'm gonna try and be as annoying with this note as possible - and stuff, and I like, figured Valley Girl speech was the easiest way to do it, like, okay? Like, omigod!!! I love reading your diary, it's sooooo cool!!! Like...god, I can't do this anymore - Whattup. Thanks for leaving me a note, that was way cool. I'm totally glad I could make your week, 'cause I know how awesome that feels, so if I can do something like that for someone else, I'm all about it. Anyway, it's like 9:00 am and I need my coffee, so I'll just hafta harass ya later. Take care!!!
from candoor :
making this note to remind myself to return when i am awake and have more time :)
from lifeasme66 :
Awwww... so very sweet of you to leave me a note!! I do enjoy reading your diary, so many witty comments! I will be adding you to my buddy list so that I'll always know when to read your updated entries! =) <kiss!>
from supershan :
It is I who should be thanking you! Your comments made me giggle with delight. And there was some blushing too. :) But thanks ever so much and I couldn't stop reading your archives today, you're just brilliant.
from lifeasme66 :
Just wanted you to know, your banners are working!! Hehe, probably better than mine =T. I just upped your clickthru%, yea! Sorry, I'm hyper... but I know what you mean about getting totally caught up and reading someone's diary from cover to cover. Not that I have the time to do that... ahem... yeah. Anyway, have a nice day! <kiss>
from dragonwench :
*beam* gracias!
from coltpixy :
Thank you so much for the b-day wishes for No ... so far she is having a wonderful day. As for the double post ... don't even worry about it. *HUGS*
from rainforme :

from rainforme :
serena girl... thanks for the wonderful desc on your favs. luv, your delighted citizen.
from caela :
heya...thanks for the comment. i couldn't put my hair down if i tried, it's hard to tell from the pic but it's quite short. :) and yes, those brown shoes ARE comfy. i love them. hope you find your ring!
from gumphood :
I'll probably be here more than you like. You know. With the constant attention and all.
from gumphood :
Dunkin Donuts Hands Down -- no question.
from gumphood :
I woould like to thank you for reading my survey. And by reading I mean taking. You get the award for "best answer to my "what should I wear besides pants question"" Funny and creative. Thats what I like to see.
from im2evil4u :
Darn it. Make that "Calvin and Hobbes." I'm done.
from im2evil4u :
make that "your diary" in my previous comment. There finished. I must say we are very similar, Calin and Hobbes, Audioslave, Iron Maiden. Love it!
from im2evil4u :
Thanks for the comment and thanks for adding me to you favorites. I, like you, check my sitemeter about a hundred times a day. I also get very excited when someone adds me to his or her favorites, I announce it several times a day to anyone listening. I’m currently reading your diary and I’ve got to say “Maiden ROCKS!!”
from captvfirefly :
Ah, the joy of having kids. "Poop eye" - yes, I laughed, I couldn't help it! I'm sure it will come back and bite me in the ass when my sister has her baby, but for right now that made me laugh. I hope your "poop eye" gets better soon!
from hadassah :
thank you for your kind words. Much appreciated. I wish you and yours all the best. Have a great Christmas and New year.
from hadassah :
Thanks for your gracious endorsement of me, and my dreams. I have to say, I can't go a day without reading you. You really rock. Give thing one and thing two a great big hug from me. Take care
