from alethia :
Mm. I'm trying to teach my boy to be dominant, but it's difficult because he's a very passive individual. Not submissive, but definately passive. Making him watch The Secretary was a good first step.
from hissandtell :
Yay! Meant to drop you a line to tell you I finally made it into your naughty little dungeon of unearthly pleasures, and how much I enjoyed it. How marvellous you've both made the decision to move onto a new and terribly exciting (even forbidden?) level of your relationship - I'm certain you will both have an absolute ball. Keep writing, doll - please. Love, R xxx
from s-m-r :
Well, you certainly seem all growed-up nowadays. Good for you. I wish you and your husband the best; make sure you spoil each other every chance you get, because things can get even better.
from hissandtell :
Thrilled to hear you're back, doll. Thanks for the email and the comment - but I can't get into your diary. I've tried four times, an it just doesn't like the password. Can you please email me again and let me know what I'm doing wrong? Love, R xxx
from hissandtell :
Still here, darling! Reading you in LJ too, but missin' you here! Love, R xxx
from mireillie :
Lamdoidal! And other anatomy terms! You should come over with Nikita sometime soon...er, when we all can get together, whenever that is. And yeah, coaxing Ramon into women's clothing may take more than just a leeetle alcohol.
from alethia :
Re: your note. He *is* nice. :D He does get a bit self concious if he catches me watching him undress, but then I usually growl and jump on him and finish the job myself, which he doesn't mind at all. ;)
from mireillie :
Damn, Ed kinda does look like Ramon in those pics!
from hissandtell :
What an orgiastic treat! Kind of really outrageous and horrific, yet deeply moving at the same time (as Tim Curry once said). Love your work, as always! Love, R xxx
from s-m-r :
"Dammit, Janet!" Looks like you had a fun time...And you were so HOT! Congratulations! --SMR
from hissandtell :
Should I even bother trying to tell you how much I'll miss you? Or will you just be a heartless bitch and laugh derisively and stomp on my already purple-pulpy broken heart? (Have fun on LiveJournal, darling. I'll try to keep up with you there.) Love, R xxx
from s-m-r :
Have fun! I'll check in on you periodically. --SMR
from mireillie :
What the hell, I'd read your LJ. I have a tendency to prefer the DL format. In other, less thrilling news, we have roaches. Bleh. We've lived here 6 years and never had a problem...despite the once weekly dishwashing. Grr. We're putting so much effort into this apartment and we get fucking ROACHES!
from gammanerd :
Hey. If you don't mind, could you email me your password? Thanks.
from lifelessness :
Baaaaa! (aka id follow too) :D
from ima-freek :
hi, im just new to this, and yeah well you said that if ppl wanna read your diary to leave yu a note, so thats what im doing i geuss, umm yeah i dont know what else to say. thanks
from alethia :
I, too, have an LJ and I'd follow you over there. :P (Of course, being a more 'writer' style of diaryist, I tend to use DL more, but that's just me. ;D)
from gonzostar :
i have an LJ and of course i'd read you over there!
from s-m-r :
I haven't gone out to see "Supersize Me" just yet; I figure it would be a 'preaching to the choir' scenario...I consider myself a full-out vegetarian, and I haven't had meat in over two years now (to my knowledge). I consider myself rather healthy; I do admit, however, that I take vitamin supplements daily, though this is primarily because I give blood regularly (six times a year) and want to make sure my iron levels are sufficient. If you ever want more details about a vegetarian diet (and my particular spin on it) then drop me a line. --SMR
from alethia :
The picture-in-Macdonald's thing: I don't think you're allowed to take pictures in a lot of big chain stores, even a lot of stores. I think they're afraid you're doing it to try to steal their ideas, layout, menu, souls. What ever. It's understandable in one respect, and stupid in another.
from lifelessness :
Al's handheld computer = Ziggy!! Yay i remember watching Quantum Leap when i was little. I saw something else with that guy in it recently but for the life of me i cant remember what it was...
from wilberteets :
I don't think I've been to Nebraska, but I had a friend when I lived in Colorado that never stopped talking about Nebraska because she was from there.
from scumthing :
cooncat=cool!
from no-map :
hey there!! thanks for the password and stuff!! Will come back to read more when I have some free time!! nice to meet ya!! xxx
from alethia :
The ghosts haven't bothered me at all since I started talking to 'em, telling them when I'm coming and going. It still feels kind of silly, but it's better than being frightened out of my wits.
from scumthing :
you are cooncat
from no-map :
hello... please could I have a little glimpse into your life.. via this (im guessing) wonderful diary?? Payton_82@yahoo.com us theatre types should stick together.. hehe!! xxx
from hissandtell :
I'm LOVIN' catching up on your entries that I've missed, darling geek! And the dress is sensational. Smooch. xxx
from alethia :
Oh, hawt! I like the dress. (I'd get black, personally, as well, because most reds don't really suit me.) Of course, I'm just ignoring the fact that the dress on a whole would be *entirely* unsuitable for my large, very busty body-type, but what ever. ;) (I'm sure it'll look positively *stunning* on you!)
from s-m-r :
Careful about putting everything on a credit card...There's usually a separate APR charged for cash withdrawals and purchases; it's usually more for cash withdrawals (from what I've seen, anyhow). Keep that in mind, and look at your credit card statement before deciding to do that; you may save yourself some cash. --SMR
from alethia :
Re:your note. Aye, especially my dad! :P
from alethia :
Yay! Cannibal the Musical! That's a *great* movie. The same group also did Orgazmo (also deals with offensive subject matter, but damned funny anyway), and Baseketball. All three movies have almost exactly the same cast, oddly enough. :P
from alethia :
*blush* Yeah, I've been masturbation material, I know at least to Mike while we were dating. I don't know about now, but then, I knew because he told me. (I was really flattered, actually.)
from lifelessness :
Sometimes inside ones mind is the most dangerous place to be. Dreams are free but acting on them isnt. Masty material = yup but only for my guy, as far as i know, hehehe.
from scumthing :
hey! can i have the password? email adress is bigtigermuffin20@yahoo.com
from lifelessness :
Heyyyy! Loved the photos! Its so nice to see something different. Man you have heaps of STUFF in your fridge. You should see ours. Kinda odd seeing brands i havent seen before, but alas! Did i see Coke? We have diet coke with lime, yummmmmm. Okay i have finished rambling now. -Debra P.S you could have your own step by step online cooking show ;)
from alethia :
I hear ya! There was this *wonderful* playground that I *loved* playing on. I never hurt myself on it, although it was three stories high and all wood and metal, but I loved playing on it as a kid. They tore it down and replaced it with this dinky little plastic thing. There's still a wooden playground at one park here, which is very, very nice, although they just recently took down the horse swings and the fox tail, which blows chunks, but probably as you said: lawsuits.
from alethia :
*That* was the most *bizarre* looking swing I have ever seen. (The one in your photo album. :P) What ever happened to two ropes, a board, and a tree?
from s-m-r :
The secret naughty clip art isn't so secret when it's clearly visible, eh? --SMR
from alethia :
I tried to get him to do Summer Nights, or what ever that one from Grease is called, but he wouldn't. BAH. Oh well. There's always next week. :P
from alethia :
Ooo. In college next year we're doing Lend me a Tenor. I'd never even heard of it before.
from alethia :
Thanks. :) It's just she's never acted this way before, and so it's just *weird*. Totally unexpected. I've always known she's thought I flirt too much (which I never notice, because half the time I don't conciously intend to), but she's never voiced it so...nastily. :/ It just started in the past week...Actually, more like the past three or four days! Totally bizarre.
from mireillie :
Yeah. I started flossing a while back. I will skip a few days here and there, like when I know with an insomniac's certainty that the Window of Sleepiness is Closing, so Screw the Pre-Bed Prep. In such cases I will actually forgo swiping a Pond's facial towelette across my face, flossing and brushing. Cause that window, she is finite. Although I always start back up because the crap I dredge up from between my teeth is so gross if I skip it for a few days. I got a lotta gaps in my back toofs. Wow. I'm so...classy. Are the ugly pants icon from your trip with Nikita? If those are the capris, dude, you would have won a contest of "find the ugliest item" my friend Renae and I used to have when we hit tj maxx.
from hissandtell :
Why, I LOVE 'em! They're completely, um, iconic. Especially Ingrid in the tub. And you, of course, darling. Love, R xxx
from hollysdiet :
i would love to see a picture of your cute outfit! take a picture when you get home!
from hissandtell :
Murders and executions - ha. I LOVED "American Psycho" too - it made me laugh all the way through. And he looked so damned good, all right. Lots of my friends didn't seem to get the humour, though. And why did you sleep in a bra? I understand that Marilyn Monroe used to do that all the time. You haven't gone all blonde on us, have you, missy geek? Love, R xxx
from alethia :
The fart thing? Oh, god, one time I had this spicy thai peanut soup over at the Redfish Grill. It was a decent soup, but oh god! I was gassing *myself* out of the room! (And that takes a lot.) Mike wouldn't come within ten feet of me for *hours*.
from science-boy :
I just have to resign myself to the fact that I suck at html and can only function when I use someone else's template and change very little. I am changing my name to loser-boy. Now that you don't have to spend so much time decyphering my diary, do you think you will spend any of that time reading my script? Hee hee!! Have a great day! s-b
from alethia :
I hear ya on the shaving thing! Unfortunately I've got uber, uber dark hair as well as the uber pale skin (*and* a lot of German/Russian and Yugoslavian blood in me, which doesn't help in the *least* when it comes to body hair). Heck. My friend Janette hasn't shaved her legs all winter, and I haven't shaved mine in two weeks, and it looks like it's the other way around. Oi!
from hissandtell :
Yes, Nicole the Actress these days is a beautiful woman - but then I thought your photograph of Nicole the Barbarella was pretty good too. But honestly, have you seen her pre-Hollywood? She was a very ordinary looking gauche girl with spectacularly unruly hair, a rather weird little face, not much in the way of grace or style and an extremely annoying and weak voice (which still irritates the hell out of me, btw). I never would have believed she could shape up into something quite so willowy and exquisite. I guess there's hope for us all, darling! Love, R xxx
from alethia :
A yellow lab, I think. At least I assume so, 'cause there's a calender of yellow labs in the bathroom that all look like her. (I'm so SMART. That's why I go to kollg. Er, college.)
from gerg69 :
Hey thanks. I like it when i get feedback on the banners. Come back soon!
from alethia :
Paypal, huh? That's a good idea 'cause as you said, you never know. ;) (Someone might actually *want* to donate to the Get Rosie Through Tech School Fund. ;P )
from alethia :
Haha. One I heard at school: Q. How many theatre techs does it take to screw in a lightbulb (or take down a scaffolding, as it was)? A. Technically one, but the very act of a theatre technician trying to do something will automatically lure all other techs within a two mile radias to come and try and help, no matter if they know nothing about what is trying to be done. It's happened. I've seen it.
from hissandtell :
Okay, geek, it's Australian, not English, but the best variation of "Gentleman's Relish" I've heard is "Mummy's (ie Mommy's) Ointment". I've only heard it from one person, ever, and it still makes me shudder...
from hissandtell :
Oh, geek, I am so jealous of your burgeoning Hammer collection! I want one too! I remember LOVING The Vampire Lovers when I saw it years ago - I'd love to see it again. And I haven't seen Van Helsing yet (only lots of shorts) but the reviews aren't great, are they? Yes, you're right - we definitely need more Hammer-type productions these days...Love, R xxx
from alethia :
Ah, I'm trying to enjoy my quiet time, but it's hard with my parents on my back so much. :| Still, I'm doing alright, I suppose. For the most part they leave me alone if they think I'm doing something productive...(Yay Sims! ;P)
from alethia :
Y'know, I darkly suspect that *everyone* who does theatre is depressed in one fashion or another, some just more than others. :/
from s-m-r :
Hey there...I just joined the zombies-r-us ring. Mind if I take a look at your journal? Thanks! --SMR
from momenchance :
Yay! Voice acting! It's a great place to start off on a career in the business. And then, when you've been doing movies and TV shows for a while, you can do a Disney cartoon and return to voice acting. :-)
from science-boy :
And it's not even about having a fantasy. It's just that everybody has a range that they find attractive. Some people's ranges are wider than others. And I find any type of talent sexy. Cooking, teaching, the woman at the eye doctor who snatched my contact lens out and put it back in without me even feeling it. boing! I don't really mind when she comments. It's more that she freaks when I say something, but didn't want to call attention. But she does point out pretty or well-endowed women. And I quote: "Check out the nuggets on that one!" Ah, love. have a great day, buddy! s-b
from mireillie :
Yo, dawg, after the next cast meeting (I believe next Sat), wanna bring yourself and those DVDs over (I already asked Nikita)? Let me know, yo. I so need to be getting to bed before 2am...sigh.
from alethia :
Oh, oh! Spinning class? I'm so jealous! I want to do spinning! (I tried to convince my father once to buy me a used spinning wheel, but he just gave me an old metal door handle and told me to make a drop spindle instead. So I did.)(It actually works good, too.)
from mireillie :
Egads! Spinning! Brave, brave girl.
from science-boy :
I always try to make sure I shave really well before so I don't have stubble. Hopefully, you don't have that same problem. Also, try the preparation h under the eyes. makes 'em nice and tight. What is it that you want to convey in the shot? Are you the engenue, the character, the vamp, the buddy, the mom, etc.? Tell him that's what you are going for, and make sure he lights you correctly and shoots it like that. Also, let him know if you want to try more than one of the above, so he can be prepared. But, I work in an office now, so... : - ) Have a great day! s-b
from science-boy :
I'm trying to type, but my belly is in the way! When is your next show? Have you read the script? What do you think so far? Have a great day! s-b
from mireillie :
See, the problem with doing something nice for my boss is this: I've already given her flowers for working during my vacation and I've already said I'm taking her for a message at the massage therapy school for coming in one night when her kids were begging her to stay home. What can I do next? Platinum? Will her my soul? Platonic offer of cunnilingus?
from lifelessness :
Thank you for the notes in my diary. I really do appreciate them :) It seems you have a lot to think about. Good on you though for thinking ahead. Make your life what YOU want it to be.
from science-boy :
If they don't make a demo tape included, don't go. That's the whole point: to come away with something tangible to help you get work. And LA sucks! Finding a place for 6 weeks, unless you have a friend you can crash with, which is not a hotel/motel and is not directly in the line of fire will be near impossible. Also, you can't get anywhere in LA without a car, so bring one of those. Take a class at a school with a good theatre department. It's so much better than workshops. That's my opinion! Have a great day! s-b
from amazingagain :
ahhh, split personalities! :)
from hissandtell :
Darling, you know my views on aging so let's just NOT REVISIT THEM, alright? And regarding toilets, well...okay, once we had some visitors and someone left something the size of a chihuahua in the toilet. It would not be subdued, no matter what. Eventually J had to go and bring in the big guns - some kind of poo-busting jackhammer, I think - to break up that puppy so it could be flushed. And that's the last time I'm ever telling you a poo story. Possibly.

Thatnks for the comment about my "ass.u.me" entry in dailywisdom (my other diary). I did the "ass.u.me" entry on purpose -- a play on the old saying. Thanks again for the note. :) ~Jamie
from alethia :
I was the new TCM. I've heard the old one is kinda...cheesy, and over before it really begins. This one was, probably, too, but I don't know. I'm a weenie and closed my eyes. ;)
from lifelessness :
Jelly is the hard stuff sometimes cut into cubes, JAM is the fruity stuff spread on bread, oftem with peanut butter.
from lifelessness :
Did you know that in NZ "pop" is usually called fizzy drink? It took me awhile to work out what you were talking about. Oh and "jello" is called jelly here :P Just some useless info for ya
from science-boy :
You are right! New friends ARE cool! Thanks for being one of them! s-b
from hissandtell :
Did I ever tell you that I met Mr Walken once?
from hissandtell :
Well, darling, if you want to avoid those facial lines when you smile, you could just not ever smile. Because, like, if you've got lines, you've got nothing to be smiling about anyway...Love, R xxx
from thepeachtree :
Oh wow! I lost your password for the longest time and now i have it back! AHAHAH! Anyways, i think you should just take the chance that you'll get tured down(which i dont think will happen) And move too if thats what will make you happy. Take chances, and live life to its fullest, you have alot to give, i can tell.
from science-boy :
"Plug 'em in the head, to drop the un-dead!!" s-b
from science-boy :
Oh my god! That was you??? Sorry about that! If I had known, I would have cleaned up a little! s-b
from science-boy :
I just try to help when I can! Have a happy East-over? Pass-ter? Have a good weekend, either way! s-b
from mireillie :
The chicken pox virus never leaves your body, if you've had chicken pox, it lurks in your spinal column. Having said that, most people don't get treated to the re-emergence of it as shingles. At least mine isn't making me blind or deaf or hurting so very bad the doctors mistook it for pleurisy/appendicitis. It's not a party. It's itchy and hurty and bleh. But, with time and acyclovir and lots of sleep and seeing how many people in the Sims game I can get to fall in love with my Sim Stellestina Sacrificial in the Makin' Magic expansion, I think I'll be alright. Plus, I could always amuse myself by thinking about which annoying 18 year old at school I'd like to gift shingles to (I get out of work, but not out of school).
from hissandtell :
Hey, geek, being gay in a renovation show is absolutely no obstacle. I'll have you know that the two boys from "Designer Guys" get me hot every single time too - well, one more than the other, but you see my point...
from mireillie :
Hey, girlfiend...I just had to say it. I have no idea what was up with our double posting of notes.
from mireillie :
oh, and, you wrote "girlfiends cooters" which just about made me die. Yes, I have seen most of my girlfiends cooters.
from mireillie :
Babe, I wander around thinking no one ever likes me when they first meet me quite a lot of the time--and much to nikita's annoyance. We all obsess over weird shit. I overanalyze, you navel-gaze at your face occasionally. How old are you, anyway? I seem to have forgotten that salient little fact. Sorry we didn't make it to the play---our vacation was busy busy busy.

from happybitter :
Oh, I am abosolutly NOT a morning person. My alarm clock is on the other side of the room at full volume. And then I don't even really wake up until 10 minutes before I'm supposed to leave. I hate that. When it's 10 PM I start to get nervous that it's time to go to sleep soon. Then again, maybe I'm just lazy and spoiled? *shrugs*
from hissandtell :
Jeeesh, this entry about mirrors made me laugh - it resonated with me on so many levels. Sometimes I get utterly obsessed about looking at myself in the mirror and dissecting every tiny component of my face. It's pathetic, I know, but it doesn't stop me. And the grey hairs - what a bastard they turned out to be. Part of me wants to just embrace them and say, "That's what happens", but of course I can't. And I am NOT a morning person and never have been. I'm happiest staying up until four and sleeping until twelve. My husband is the opposite. I hated my last job so much (for a gazillion other reasons, too) because I had to be up at 5.30am to drive for an hour. Blecchhh. So, no, I don't think you're a whiny pseudo-diva at all. I think you're magnificent!
from spritopias :
Watch yo' mouth around other people's kids!
from alethia :
Middle of the West Kootenays, in BC. :) Okay, okay. Maybe I was exaggerating a *little*. Make that a six hour radius. But *still*...:/ It's not like I live in a big city or anything (10,000, if you count the tourists).
from alethia :
Oh! Oh! I am *so* jealous. There's no Cons around my hometown in pretty much a ten hour driving radius. It sucks!
from hissandtell :
Nice entry, geek. I concur entirely with your views on marriage and I'm glad you're still able to reflect fondly on this other person without letting it jeopardise the very real thing you have with your husband.
from science-boy :
Good for you!!! It's good to know that I can be of, um, assistance to others. If I start an online advice and info site, will you join? : - ) Have a great day (and a great night!!)!! Have you had a chance to check out the script? No pressure!! Later. s-b
from science-boy :
Thanks for the not-a-geek vote! I get people all the time who get freaked out that I am a dad and as old as I am (35 soon). I just don't think that you have to let "life" end when you have kids. Actually, I now have an acceptable reason to watch cartoons and imitate all the voices again. My Bride get the same thing. But being an aerobics instructor, she doesn't look like she's had even one kid. I missed you, M, welcome back! Glad the show went well. Have a great day! s-b
from lifelessness :
I like this entry. It shows some actual thoughts and not just a blow by blow account of your day(s) :)
from alethia :
Everyone needs penny porn every now and then. Mmmm. Pennnnny pooooorn...;)
from hissandtell :
What a fun entry, you randy little geek! And I'm thrilled to hear that your Wardrobe Nazi has gone. Porn for a penny? Gosh.
from science-boy :
It's a policy. Apparently, they can avoid a law suit if a professionally trained box loader/roller/unloader is in charge of the process. Ugh.
from mireillie :
Um...wow. That's a lot of vitriol in that there costumer entry. She must be a real piece of work. "Cuntrag". Heh.
from alethia :
Our house costumer, Allison, from my theatre back home apparently is a big bitch too. I never knew, because she really likes me for some reason, and almost always lets me pull my own costume for a show (which is pretty bizarre in retrospect, but no one has ever complained about the pieces I pull. She even asked my advice choosing pieces for my Captain Hook costume). Apparently she's really bitchy and uptight to everyone else though. Whew. I thank whichever lucky stars helped me with her.
from eventhewind :
hee hee! I haven't had the chance to do any comm. theater in a few years, but oh I love (and miss) it ever-so! ...I'd be interested in checking out your journal if you have a moment to send the password my way. thanks for the welcome!
from alethia :
I hear you! For a production of Secret Garden I was in, all the 'dreamers' (ghosty people and flashback people) were dressed in cream toned clothing and every last one of them barefoot. Me included. It didn't help that during one of the shows a couple cut glass drinking glasses shattered off stage, both left *and* right. Thank god for stage crew. (Though I admit I did find a few minute shards of glass with my feet, it was nothing serious.)
from spritopias :
UGH, I lost my password again.
from hissandtell :
"There are other secret things we do" - I love it! All that secret women's business we get up to in the bathroom - hee. And I can't wait to see a photograph of you as a vision in angelic white. In your leotard. Bare-footed and fey. Draped in your gauze. Bounding lithely through the forest. Shaking your lissome vines and tendrils. (You get the idea.)
from alethia :
Re: your note; Yes, we were determined to remain friends (and we have, despite sexual tension and a little bitterness on his part). Just after the shit hit the fan, he kissed me and told me we'd remain friends (I didn't even use the 'Let's just be friends' line!). It made it easier. I'm glad we've remained friends.
from science-boy :
Thanks for reading up. It's just a place for me to talk about stuff. Sometimes light, sometimes dark, but always colorful. Shakespeare is so wonderful! If this is your first time, the only advice I have as an actor and director is to do the translation in your head and let his rhythm pull his language out of you. Mid Summer is such a fun play. I did As You Like It - Orlando, and Romeo and Juliet - Tybalt, alternating nights in summer rep a few years back. Hero, bad guy, hero, bad guy, back and forth each night. It was so awesome. I think I like it more now than I did then. When you get some time, I would love to have you take a peek at my script to get an actor's point of view. Let me know if you are interested. s-b
from science-boy :
Without knowing your scholar's qualifications, I have to disagree. Quern IS pronouned kwurn. It's middle english from german for hand mill. Websters: Main Entry: quern Pronunciation: 'kw&rn Function: noun Etymology: Middle English, from Old English cweorn; akin to Old High German quirn hand mill, Old Church Slavonic zruny : a primitive hand mill for grinding grain. Fairy is telling Puck (with some sublte undertones) that she is aware of his promiscuity, what with the grinding and bootless, breathless and such. And of course the mischevious and lazy reference to making beer so he doesn't have to carry the yeasty malt (barm). Just my two cents. Have a great day! s-b
from hissandtell :
Glad you're feeling better. Sorry your NY trip's on the back burner, but it sounds as if it's better this way for the moment. Oh, and I've only ever seen the last half of "Ginger Snaps" (having never heard of it at all up to that point) and thought it was a complete hoot. I'd love to see all three!
from alethia :
Vixen? Me? But I'm pure and good and innocent! (Most of the time.) Honest. ;)
from science-boy :
I would like to get a peek at what's inside. If you're up for it! science_boy1007@yahoo.com Have a great weekend! s-b
from mireillie :
I'm a supah gold member and all, and I still can't figure out how to delete your note, babe. Any helpful hints?
from momenchance :
I haven't had internet access at home for the last twelve days or so, and just got it back Friday night. That's why I haven't updated till now. But of course, with all the computer upgrades and new stuff, I have to type in your diary's username and password again and I can't remember them. If you could e-mail them to me, that would be cool. :-) I haven't missed the Vagina Monologues, have I?
from hollysdiet :
i hate notes because i want all my comments in one place. and non-diaryland people can't leave notes. and comments on each entry... i don't like that format. i'm a guestbook believer, all the way. but thanks for the signing! ~holly~
from hissandtell :
Poor you. Your job really does sound as if it's a bit of a nightmare. You're so lucky to have your acting to distract you from the drudgery.
from alethia :
Your notes make me all warm and fuzzy inside when I'm feeling sad. (Then again, that could also be the hampster I swallowed earlier...hmm...;P)
from hissandtell :
I'm missing you! I'm reading your other diary but it's just not the same!
from alethia :

my neck hurts. I have an exam tomorrow. I so wish we hadn't gotten into that car accident. And if it helps, I too have felt the allure of other men, probably to a more extreme extent. My family life didn't exactly leave me wired for monogamy, but I'm holding steady because I realize it's largely a defense mechanism to screw up my life/provide a distraction when things are new and different or when things are going really well. I remember that power, and I still want it. It's just sleeping in this fatgirl wrapper.

You're right. For all my complaining, I'd rather be working in theatre and be multi-tasking like hell, than not be working in theatre at all. (Same as I'd rather not act and be a techie than not work in theatre at all. *sigh*)

As for getting fruit in your diet, try finding a fruit you really like and stick with it? I find I crave citrus fruit, and therefor eat a lot of oranges, grapefruits and lemons (mmm, lemony). Either than, or cut 'em up in yogurty goodness (low fat, of course). Or fruit smoothie popsicles, which are oh so very tasty. Especially when it's *not* snowing. Preferrably sunny. Mmm. Fruitilicious.

Re Your Note: I do know that you shouldn't have chairs or couches with the backs to windows, and to avoid having beds, chairs or main sitting areas imediately visible upon cracking open a door. (That can be fixed by hanging a curtain or sheet from the cieling right beside the door, so the person actually has to step into the room to see the people in it.) And if I ever get *my* Feng Shui figured out, I'll let you know. :P These dorms have terrible, terrible Fung Shui.

Re: Your note. Funny thing is, arthritis really *doesn't* run in my family. My ninety year old grandma is still spry and active, and I've never heard anything about arthritis with her. And as for the smell, it is better when I open the window. The only thing is it's -20ish at the moment, and it gets damn chilly damn fast, so I can't keep it open for very long. Pity. Spring will be better for that.

Yes, it's perfectly natural that you would want to play with a handsome, dashing, charming, erotic vampire for a while before "taking him out" as they say; a bit like Carolyn Munro as vampire bait in "Captain Kronos".

I do that too! Cast plays in my head, that is. Me and other actors from my hometown used to speculate what the next summer play would be, and cast it in our heads to see if it was plausable. (Some plays we totally wrote off because we didn't know any local actors that could do it. Les Mis was one of those.) Peter Pan came out more or less how we'd mentally cast it. Except for Wendy and Peter Pan. Those were unexpected choices.

The only reason she wakes me is because her meowing sounds a little like Ash crying (weird huh?? must be the pitch or something). Once im awake she annoys the crap outta me til i let her out, grrr! Before i heard Ash i would never have heard her, and now Ash and the cat are the only things that wake me up :P Hey i love your trip idea. Richard and i are in the same kinda situation.

I remember my last hickey. One night an ex-boyfriend and I were out under the stars and he decided to recreate the Southern Cross (constellation) on my neck - that's five stars in all, folks - and then took photographs of it. The next day my boss hauled me into his office to have an uncomfortable little chat about it. He pulled at his tie and looked down and mumbled a lot as he discussed my (admittedly) rather spectacular love-bites. I remained resolutely unapologetic and self-righteous on the outside, but deep down I was mortified. I've never had one since.

My dad uses hankerchiefs all the time too. One Christmas I was going to get him a pink hankie, because pink is his favorite colour, but I couldn't find any, so I just bought him pink suspenders instead. When he opened the suspenders he was so pleased he put them on right away, overtop of the red ones he was already wearing, then forgot he was wearing two pairs and went to dinner like that. Heheheh. But I like that idea. Maybe I'll get him plain white hankies monogrammed in pink.

Ah, Old Chicago. I have fond memories of the Old Chicago in Colorado. Our German study group used to meet there. With only three regulars, it wasn't too bad. We'd order three or four appetizers and round after round of Framboise (sp?), with our bookbags under the table. We only brought them inside to justify the trip, as it was supposed to be a German study group and all...it was more of a drinking thing though. :-)

Yeah, but that was why I never ate breakfast: I could never stomach my dry, bland lunches during high school if I wasn't quite hungry. And in the morning I gradually had no desire to eat. My stomach didn't rumble, the sight of food didn't attract me (even things that usually did), so I just stopped eating breakfast. Though I do usually eat a light brunch now, just to tide me over 'til lunch. :)

Hi theatre-geek, Can I have the username and password to your journal? (I tired to send you an email, but hotmail said that your email address didn't exist?! Oops. Also, tried to get you at theatre-geek.signmyguestbook.com, but I think signmyguestbook was having issues with itself.) As for Patrick, my ex... He told me that he still loved me. (Keep in mind, I haven't seen him in a year and a half, and that he's dated two other women since me) I don't know, I just didn't want to announce that on the internet. I don't have a problem telling people. Actually, I'm unsure as to whether I should tell my fiance or not. I want him to be a part of everything in my life, but I also want to respect Patrick. Not to mention that Sejin (my fiance) might then get a little weird about me seeing Patrick. *shrugs* I'm still thinking about it. Take care, and thanks for all your messages as of late! 0=) -Nicole PS: I haven't been in any shows since high school, but one part I loved about musicals is the dancing. I am really really excited... next semester I am taking a dance aerobics class. I know it doesn't sound like much, but after not dancing for so long, the prospect of doing so again is just so exciting! 0=)

There is a mysterious banging that comes from somewhere in the vicinity of our next-door neighbors' place.

Every single day, at random intervals, forever? They're nice people, but what's with all the knocking? This is why I tell my friends to ring the bell when they come over.

However, I am in the process of gathering some friends of mine together to descend upon your Rocky Horror troupe, if that's all right. I've got the website bookmarked. Do you have a location yet? If not, you might think about asking around at local nightclubs, if you haven't already. Other than that, I don't know where a troupe could have a movie shown on a big screen and still have enough space to perform in front of it. I really hope to see this get off the ground. Later! :-)

There are no jobs, but that's the same everywhere. You should come in March - it isn't usually super cold in March, just snowy. (Like in the 20's, rather than below zero. Sometimes it's even above freezing in March.)

I like to think of myself as the unofficial Minneapolis Welcome Wagon. I love showing off my hometown, giving out fun visitor ideas, etc. If you visit again or think about moving here, let me know.
from gerkat :
Hey, I just realized you were in Minneapolis last week. How did you like it? Did my town treat you right? There are lots of people on diaryland who will design a layout for you for free. Heidi did mine: heidiann.diaryland.com
from thepeachtree :
hey, if you need any help putting up a template leave me a message, i'm willing to help you uot. *smiles*
from tabbynormal :
Thanks for the note! I enjoy theater as well, although I haven't been able to see many plays lately. Mwah!
from cinema-stare :
You can geta free template with images one as long as you have a place to host the images. I've heard a lot of people use ranchoweb (.com?, .net?, not sure) and they allow offsite linking, and I haven't heard any complaints.
from cinema-stare :
Saw a layout that reminded me of your screen name. If you think it sucks, I'm sorry. I suppose it's the thought that counts? :) http://inconsequentiality.com/design/stagestruck.php
from spritopias :
Well, I hope I haven't disappointed you.
from theatre-geek :
Thanks to the folks who added me to their favorite diaries list!
from tomkat :
Okay I just read your description of me. Yeah I like video games, but that is not my priority in life, lol. My priorities go as follows: cars, music, movies, then video games. I think you should change your description... :P Email me and we can shoot the shit sometime... lindsay@ptmfus.com

I'm old, very old. You'd know Ryan if you met her.
from gerkat :
Thanks for your advice in my guestbook. Don't worry, he's not a serious stalker.I'm not afraid for my safety or anything, just really angry that he won't respect our agreement. He doesn't seem to realize that by trying to hang onto me he's just pushing me farther away. Boys are so dumb sometimes.
from spritopias :
Not a problem, not a problem at all. My friend Ryan does all kinds off cool theatre things in Lincoln, do you know her?
from spritopias :
I passionately disagree that Nebraska is cultural wasteland. I lived all over, mainly on the Eastern Coast and in Europe, but I will tell you, it's what you make it.
from spritopias :
Neat. I used to live in Seward. God, I love Seward. I love Nebraska. I just love it.
from spritopias :
Are you in Nebraska?

Hemmingway said to keep a notebook with you ALL THE TIME and be ready to write in it. It took me a while to remember, you need a notebook and a pen. That is how I keep track of it all. Also, get a guestbook so that people can give you feedback. It improves your diary because you get great feedback and hate mail. Hate mail means you've made it. I always post my hate mail, it shoes us how ridiculous people are.

P.S. Have you every been to the Joyo Theatre's Rocky Horror Night? They don't do it in the summer, as 95% of their audience and cast are college students. I haven't been in a long time, and can't remember if it's Fri or Sat night during the school year. Also, I have no idea what they charge for admission nowadays. But in the beginning, a friend of mine from the Des Moines cast came down to help get it started. She called me and asked if I'd do a part for the opening night, so I ended up playing Janet. That was some fun. :-)
from momenchance :
Hey, thanks for dropping by the guestbook. I read a couple of your entries and will definitely be back for more when I have a little more time to read. :-) Hope to talk to you soon.
from spritopias :
Wow...thanks...
from thepeachtree :
You describe one of my friends to the tee. This is amazing, i'll be back, oh yeah, i'm coming back.
from gerkat :
Thanks for your message in my guestbook. Theatre geeks are one of my favorite kind of geeks!
