from orgami :
twenty two my Lori was raising two beautiful girls and had been married for less then three years at that age I was a repressed judgemental suck living at home who went out only rarely and read tons of books we cannot always look at our past paths and seek solace or comfort sometimes its a narrow place where we couldnt turn to hold our opinions or support what we could then rarely hope to understand with full empathy you have though taken time to overlook all misgivings and talk once again to your freind for this you are to be congradulated on Many a person has walled themselves from such learning oppurtunities by false pride and ego and for those its the slow retreat from the world to sit indoors alone in front of the television to live false lives at work no growth no flexibilty no time to forgive oneself to heal to breathe in and see what there is that is offered you amaze me how you handle things in your diary pages ..O..

Oy... I could always watch all of 24, but somehow this movie disturbs me... How's the work motivation? My own is about as low as yours right now. I think, it's because I've worked so much for so long that my body's now decided that I need a break... Hope you have a nice weekend, love, Charis :-)

Ok, I just added you into the people that are allowed to do guest entries in my diary. Now, here are the instructions according to Andrew: The guest poster just has to click on "add an entry" in the members area, just like they normally would when adding an entry, and there will be a link to all of the entry screens for the diaries they have permission to post to. Just let me know what day you want to post. I'll probably post today, but then you can take your pick from Sat-Thurs. Oh, and I see in the instructions (are you a gold member? it's under gold member resources) it says you can't edit an entry you post, just fyi. And just make sure to put in there that you're doing a guest entry, so they know you're not me, duh. Anyway, thanks!! I love reading your diary and I think this will be fun. :)
from gnomad :

from neangel :
i don't know if you've been able to do anything template wise for me but i found something lyrics that might be an inspiration. "2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song If I get it all down on paper, its no longer inside of me, threatening the life they belong to And i feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud And I know that you'll use them, however you want to Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable, And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table No one can find the rewind button now Sing it if you understand. and breathe, just breathe woah breathe, just breathe" (Anna Nalick - Breathe [2 am])
from orgami :
hah hah hah hah oh man that was good just read your diary I love it when women state themselves like warrioress's of old in battle before they plunge head long with sword flying Valkryies from the skies I had an ex girlfreind who was like this and man attention was given when one makes such extravagant and urgent enquiries reminds me of that NO commercial what a hoot you are Ursa and then the television story about john holmes twenty four inch Johnston hah hah hah yah Bedroom television I forgot about this Lori and I havent watched a porno in some time She liked Boogey nights especially the last few scenes "LOOK AT IT..LOOK AT IT!!" it was worth a "standing" ovation her performance hah hah anyway thats it for me I am off to listen view write whatever my hour permits me here from this chair I like having my headphones on even though now I dont listen to music it feels or makes me feel important here somehow Maybe I am just going crazy though well its fun so far.....
from orgami :

from orgami :
oh my god your poor poor truck I had a Ford 150 XLT shortbox ranger with gold and white pin stripe factory package and white rims Firestone 721 tires tonneau cover sliding glass overdrive transmission manual and eight track It was the BOSS but it got old and I sold and traded it for cash and a home stereo Your truck looked beautiful and just paid off and the drunks that old saying God looks after drunks and fools WHY? it was funny that they yelled at you Looking at your OOMA that person looks capable of damage to said kid hah GO PISTONS I hear stories like this often at AA meetings from people who have put down the bottle and then try to lead productive lives without booze killing them what chaos in that carnage they build trucks much better today But I am reminded of my little black Ford and how I went everywhere with it and how much it would haul in the box It was new in 1981 and our family bought it in 1984 it had never seen winter in Ontario so now rust at all It is still going as I am having admitted I am powerless over booze and no longer drive due to epilepsy take my medications and am a somewhat pruductive person now well must go sorry about that truck and your photos were amazing to look up Orgami over and out........

from orgami :
loved you latest diary I liked that you can stand up and deliver the goods and people respect that ablility So many people are just not adept at this You obviously are good at taking control I liked your story about the Baddydaddies and how you knew that the man would leave his Lovely You are a true realist and then Yes hauling around heavy old air conditioners is bad for the back My own is shot and I cannot work anymore and haven't for eight years On disability which has its limitations but its okay anyway when its really hot out for some reason being a man there is nothing more sometime then more heat I like being all hot and sweaty from biking around ( I can do this almost) and come in and bother Lori she calls it mauling its just a cave man/life on the savanah thing my long hair all sweaty like the mane on a lion after a bath in the swill pond except I am fat and slow now hah hah I used to love cooking in the tub at the fitness place but I dont go there anymore something about hanging naked with other men (I am comfortable with my sex and body but you never know..) anyway I quit going but I do sit in the odd bath on a hot night I know it doesn't make any sense but coming out on a hot night after a really hot bath makes the air feel so good it feels cool then Lori just relaxes on the couch under the back busting air conditioner I put in the window awhile ago anyway Ursa Love your diary and way to go on your presentations O.....

how much could i pay you [or lavish you with gifts] to make me a beautiful template like one of yours?
from orgami :
ursa i moved into Loris a year ago with about five boxes of medium size and three bags of photos and writings and it stayed unpacked for so long then just with her urgins and suggestions and I finally unpacked it was from my past at being moved around nothing stable for long into storage out of storage moving on the road with just a packsack But Lori finally bought a picture frame for my daughters photo which were loose and then I cleaned up the closet of hers which was messy then slowly I put all my clothes into this full dresser she gave me after about a month or more did I not move in but then I did and put my bags away then she suggested like she had that I get a photo album and I looked and looked until i found the photo album that was just right and i bought it and she bought one the same and i put my photos into it one day and it got put away until i finally "moved-in" with Lori she said her former husband had his own room and in Men are from Mars Women are from Venus they talk about the men "going into their cave" but on top of my dresser is part of Lori's small plush toy collection which I dont mind I am slowly putting my sketchs and drawings up on the walls too but I really dont have all that much masculine stuff up that was more my brothers doing he hunted and fished I was more a book reader and talker (like writing I talk lots too) so that was what I have to offer then and now if its any kind of peek into the mind of man eventually I did move in though so all the stuff packed up I just found it personal all my stuff it was a sensitive thing and I only unpacked when I felt safe and when Lori was into a movie then I puttered around throwing out old past relationship stuff and old writings and photos which I gleaned it was like getting rid of a shell and being all soft until I found a new shell (i am a crab, Cancer) blah blah but at least now I know what Lori felt until i unpacked wow i never thought it would have bothered her that much But I guess it did get to her I just thought that our relationship would change and she would dump me and I would have to pack all that stuff up and sadly move on Now I think much more strongly I know I have a futre with Lori now and we make purchases and are a team but for awhile it was just two people finding their way (we even hold hands when we walk around downtown) anyway I'm blabbing on and on so I'll thankfully stop gotta go to my meeting Ciao
from orgami :
ursa how the hell are you Lori and I are going great she kicked me almost out told me I need therapy and guess what I did not want to lose my little lovely so I got on the old blower and made some committments to appointments I have therapists and counsellors and psych doctor and she and I go to one therapist and Lori gets to have her say about what is troubling us Its the goddamndest thing Also I got Bunni nickname for her from the BIg Lebowski which is my favourite movie after Bladerunner but not Paris Texas I am sooooo in Love with Lori she has dyed her hair black like that little girl in the Beetlejuice movie Only Loris eyes are green not brown She is going to get her eyebrow peirced tommorrow or tonight let her be what she is to be rebel hardrock hardcore survivor woman stands-with-little-fist My lightening woman strike me twice before I know what happens Her brain sees around corners six o'clock here cold and wind a blowing snow city yet not summer lots of places to rent again signs all over students leaving soon for summer found a pair of echo jeans on the sidewalk washed them and am wearing them the dryer kills whatever may have been in them all that was wrong was a busted button but I just use my belt to hold my gut in and my pants up hah hah hah but what a score and My old eighties blue leather jacket I now have purple sunglasses and sideburns and a goatee so I am styling like the Dude anyway gotta go for today things are going really swell hope all is well with you Ursa Orgami over and out

from orgami :
slowly being phased out or maybe just being normal around these people I have had the oppurtunity to be involved with interesting people in my day lately though things have been sluggish between Lori and I I mean why cant she just come out and say this is over why drag things along I ask her and she says she still wants me I dont know I am confused by it all but they say its easy to get confused around a Gemini woman will just have to see if I have to move and move on then it happens all this work i did getting rid of assholes in her life and helping her get out there in public again talking to her counsellors therapists etc and then to get let go ive lived independent before I will survive just sad though got the apartment fixed up nice etc i know the family wants this new old freind back in her life because they control him he is a total yes man i am trying to get her to speak up more and all she is doing is saying how hard it is i am on her and all the males that came and caused her greif somehow that is my fault its crazy i know i am so tired mentally and there is poems on the wall from her female freind about how they hate me and her aunt wants to throw me out her mother doesn't like me because I just told her on the phone that she should focus her energies on having a good relationship with her daughters and grandchildren instead of phoning up Lori and making her cry i'll never be good enough i guess for anyone so I just better work on myself anyway that is just todays issues that are clouding my head big time when I first met Lori her aunt was throwing her out and then her husband left for her a month etc... crisis central man never a dull moment but I do Love Lori I think its up to her to decide whom she wants but I mean everyone is telling her to get rid of me and all i am trying to do is get her away from her family so she can think on her own i think she likes being put in the cage some people are so comfortable with it having someone always tell you what to do i wont mention the pill problem at the beginng of the month either....... all in all a normal day in Ontario!! s..

nineteen minutes left to write Lori and I on tenous grounds or Like Velveteen rabbit when he was placed by the fire a little too closely ANXIOUS TIMES i find that even ass kicker little Lori finds me too much i am so intense demand to much mental space from her where are you in there Lori her octopuses garden what is it all about Lori what is the great secret to life the great pain of loss the great need of being what void do i fill for you whose ghost am I embodied too what grave memory lingers so many loss's for her she slips through my fingers like a reflection on the wishing well surface so badly i want to feel her close we are so far like distant galaxies like a faint star or whisper was that real or an illusion should this not work i will probably give up totally out of stubborn unrequited want one already has died he was out there but she greives him nonetheless i'll take my number and wait in line but it was so beautiful so have that radical moment in quiet reverie when she would sleep her smooth alabaster skin in the streetlamp glow the window laced with new frost with my arm about her the ultimate broken heart should this all fail the mother of pain i wouldnt change a damn thing she was worth every minute she radiates so very much oh well time to go Ursamajor i need to write others every day i write someone new on this medium i have recently found its like a journey and i love to travel again thank you Steven

I was going to type "whee, whee, whee, whee" but somehow that seemed SO wrong!
from givemeabreak :
Sadly enough, she doesn't really know a whole lot of it other than the fact that our lack of sex (none for 2 years!!!!) has me a bit under the weather so to speak. She knows how I am feeling, but things are getting strange outside of my relationship with her...
from loner-blues :
My Ursie (that was your nickname in grade-school) how you've changed! :-) I just wanted to thank you for the addition to your buddies list. -cat
from givemeabreak :
You are the best, you know that right? I am okay, just a lot going on right now. School is overwhelming...work is good but work...and I am desperately trying to sort out my recently resurfaced bisexuality....why can't life be simple I say????
from loner-blues :
How cool. I clicked your banner out of curiousity and find a woman who shares the name of my best friend from sixth grade through high school. You've found another reader Little Bear. :-) -cat
from xkitix :
I really enjoyed your entry for today(February 14th) about your husband. It made me laugh numerous times and I decided you have a great sense of humour. I hope you don't mind me adding you to my buddy list so I can laugh again in the future. If you oblige, please send me a nasty email as fast as you can. Kiti
from orgami :

wonderful V-Day to you :)
from gnomad :
Hey! Are you and OOMA going to the 10th Annual Tattoo Expo? We're coming down for that! We should go play!
from deli-cut :
Yes, the Speed Freak is $135. Now you know why hair stylists charge so much money: They have Speed Freaks to pay off!
from deli-cut :
I'm glad that you refer to the thing OOMA played as a Dimebag Darrell "tribute." I keep seeing ads for Dimebag Darrell "benefits," which I'm sure are benefits to help his family pay for funeral expenses, but it's a little weird to advertise something as a "benefit" when it's for a dead guy. Your friend, the grammarian
from whinybutt :
It twas I indeed! :D Recap coming ... soon. :)
from nimiiwin :
Thanks for the note. I think the guardian angel might have been his grandfather who died just the week before. Surely he has one, though.
from katm6 :
DUH! For the life of me I didn't have a clue about whom you were talking. Even after you left me the note I had to think hard. Um, late next week is fine as long as it's Thursday. I have mucho to do on Friday including making sure I have everything ready for my cruise which is Saturday.
from sarahsundae :
Oh no-if you’re a midget at 5’4” then so am I. Don’t say that! Please?! LOL I love the tiara! Very cute.
from phro :
Ursa! Thanks for your note. That is wacky about your prediction. A good friend of mine dreamt 2 nights ago that I called to tell her I'm preggers - so she's having quite a deja vu. I guess I'm sending pregnant vibes out. The official test yesterday was a big ol positive too, so I holding on tight for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...
from givemeabreak :
Thank you sweetie! You're the best. I STILL want to get together and actually have face to face time with the cool Ursula. :0) I'll shoot for sometime in the spring when school is out! Whew! Happy Holidays to you and OOMA!

I saw that commerical at the gym - about 200 times. Towel dropping chicks just don't a thing for me.

A goat licking his balls and Nicollette Sheridan all in one entry. Strangely, it seems to fit together!

...You're welcome for the note, and thanks for stopping by. I added you to my favorites. :) I meant to do this yesterday, but I got distracted by actual work. I hate it when that happens...
from knock-first :
stopped by and enjoyed names ursula, bet yours is too.
from skibigsky :
Alas, if you were in Utah or California, I'd know a great lender for you :-), but as it is, no such luck. Still, I can sympathize with the whole frustrating process - it seems like one day it is up the next day things are a total disaster.... Owning a home may be the American dream, but buying one sure isn't!

Sent the wedding URL to your new e-mail address. Want to attend one of the candlelight vigils tonight re: war in Iraq? Call my cell as I might be going to the Tigers doubleheader.
from starlight42 :
I will do some Presidential research. It's so hard to figure out what's the truth and what's made up...but I know it's important to try. I just want to see this country start improving! An economy on the up-swing would do wonders.
from divamel :
Okey doke. Hit me up at my email off my DLand page and we can talk dates. Woo-hoo! I'm thinking next weekend, maybe?
from divamel :
Urrrrrrrrrrrrsuuuuulaaaaaaaa! When are we going to get together and play???? Man Unit refuses to show me his Detroit for some reason, so it's up to you and OOMA.
from inkdragon :
Poor OOMA!
from gnomad :
Well, I dunno if this counts or not, but I think you da bomb, baybee. And anyone with a grain of sense will agree with me. So. That's at least a couple of people that think you're swell. *grin*
from gnomad :
HAH!! Yup, I did the same thing. Some of those were eerily accurate. And I still happen to think that's right about the Deli on 6 Mile, too. How joo doin', cookie??
from starlight42 :
Thanks for the congrats note!!
from raven-claws :
Dear Diary Owner. I would like to convince you that I am right. Please, I beg of you - let me prove to you I am right. I will not rest until I tell you my story. You cannot have an opinion unless I inspire it to some extent. What do I have to do or say to make you understand that I am right? Should I shout from atop a roof or a mountain? Should I leave fifty million notes at your diary to convince you that I'm right?

Why I do believe that's one of the most disturbing songs I've ever heard. Good lord.

Soft, squishy and smelling good are truly the greatest qualities don't you think? Tracy and I were in Port Huron this past weekend for the birth of her niece Amber Jean. She is beyond precious. It is amazing that something so incredible comes out of us...

Who rules for playing Madlibs with me? That's so you. Yay ursa!
from legalbeagle :
For me, the 2nd year of marriage was just what you described. The third gets slightly better, depending on the day you talk to me. What a bizarre institution. But you aren't alone in your craziness - know that!
from divamel :
Oo. Glad I'm no relation. *snickers*
from inkdragon :
Pleasantly surprised, screw that! I hope they blow your socks off by paying you TWICE what you are worth!
from divamel :
I. Feel. You. If you've been reading me at all of late, you know just how much. Lord. Damned non-profits.
from gypsy-poet :
Oh I would be fit-to-be-tied over the pay raise, or the lack thereof. And much like you, my first response would be to send out some freshly done resume's... of course then my reality would set in, and knowing we jsut bought a house would flood into my brain and I would realize that I am stuck... I just hope my boss doesn't realize that that too... sorry that the non profit is screwing you...
from nimiiwin :
Hey! PJH is from St. Ignace! Is OOMA too? How old is he? P is 45, almost 46. I love St. Ignace. I have this great idea to write some historical fiction about the beginnings of the town. I doubt I'll ever do it but I think about it every time I'm up there. Next time you go up there, tell me, and I'll tell you the absolute best beach to go to! And where to get the best pasties! :)
from inkdragon :
Great vacation photos! Lotsa family there, huh?!
from starlight42 :
oooh, pretty pics! I love that part of Michigan- Mackinaw and all that. So pretty and peaceful.
from sexy-gymnast :
Hello, I'm 15 years old yeah you don't know me, sorry but i really wanted to leave you a msg. I was browsing through diaries and i read your 101 facts about yourself. And i think you are such a good person. You probably don't care but i just wanted to you to know that:) Have a good one! :)
from inkdragon :
Happy Belated Birthday wishes!
from starlight42 :
Ohhhh, vacation, I'm so jealous! By the way, I went to the Silverdome drive-in last weekend, it was pretty nice!
from nimiiwin :
Thanks, Ursa! I need all the well-wishes I can get. :)
from deli-cut :
So Petey has poop issues... Does this remind you of any other pets you've had in the past?
from inkdragon :
I'm thinking of you and sending the union get back to work vibes!
from starlight42 :
sorry to hear about the financial woes. Been there...I hope you still can enjoy your time off. Read some good books, rent some movies you've been meaning to see, do a BBQ or a picnic. Take a drive out to the water or a nice park. Have fun!!
from givemeabreak :
Hey babe- I am sorry to hear about the newlywed bliss breaker...Money bites. I totally understand where you are at. Tracy and I have been together for 3 years and yet to live without feeling "paycheck to paycheck"...my goal for 2005 is to actually have a savings account. It will get better, I promise. Hang in there...punch the PenisHeadBoss, you'll feel better.
from phro :
Trini is the most adorable baby. What a sweet little face. At least you have her cuteness to focus on during your time of financial worries. Worry about $ is the suckiest part of being a grownup, for sure. My husband resigned his job and leaves in 2 weeks and I'm feeling a bit twitchy myself. No more fun ebay purchases for phro.
from gnomad :
Heya sunshine! I feel your pain. My job status is all yoinked around between the apprenticeship and the Snake Pit, and things ain't all that sunny here until everything shakes out. I'm keeping you guys in my thoughts and hang in there. You can always give us a call if you wanna yell and scream. Trust, we've been there.
from inkdragon :
That is a great way to start the day. P.S. Great photo composition!
from givemeabreak :
Urs...don't you look GREAT holding a little bambino!!! :0) TJ is gorgeous. I cracked up about the Kenosha thing...I swear that must be the equivalent of the "burmuda cheese triangle"...I was in a car accident (the only one in my 33 years) right on the highway by the stupid Cheese Castle. Nice...real nice. I still love Wisconsin, cows, and of course BEER! :0)
from inkdragon :
Congratulations Auntie! TJ is adorable. Yeah, babies have a way of filling in those wrinkles...all too fast!
from mommylap :
Just so you know, I totally miss you. I light up when your name is red on the buddy list. My sister and BIL were preapproved for a mortgage and are moving less than a mile from my apartment. They are set to close by the end of July, which is CRAZY since they looked at the house and made the offer on 6/22. No shit.
from inkdragon :
Congratulations to TheGirl! Have a great few days away.
from jfsuperstar :
i've been buggin' about the downtime at dland too...and i refuse to pay as well, so don't feel like a second class citizen. i have really cool bosses now, so i don't have to call them names. but i do remember what it was like to have one of those! so, i totally hear ya.
from givemeabreak :
I really need to finally coordinate a time to meet up with you and Bonnie too. Tracy's family lives in the Port Huron area (Marysville to be exact), so maybe one long weekend there we could meet for lunch or something. OR you could come here for our next patio party which will be July 24th!!!! Nothing like planning early huh?
from deli-cut :
Don't know if you'll read this in time, or if you even have the station, but John Waters will be on Dinner for Five on IFC tonight. Yes, Jon Fatreau is going to try surviving a whole night w/o Vince Vaughn!

ursamajor-LOVE your diary! i'm from michigan too, but i now live in...that 'other' state, indiana. stop by and visit my diary anytime. we have alot in common-[dreams, fav. movies, music, etc].
from nimiiwin :
Well, thanks! :) It happened rather suddenly. We were just considering it then we got a call from a social worker that P made a casual comment to. The rest is history. On the road to 2, if not 3, sons!
from inkdragon :
Petey is adorable. Hand-raised is always better. I hope your work life lightens up so you have more time for the husband and the birdies!
from crzystrwbrry :
hey a bunch of my friends and i started a new diary: http://menrbastards.diaryland.com. i know you host a diaryring so i was wondering if you could pass on the word about it and have people send in stories and write to us and whatnot. it is a diary soley devoted to the bashing on lame guys and the stories that girls have personally experienced with dumb boys. it would really mean a lot. leave me a note with ur thoughts or whatever. thanks. -hannah
from givemeabreak :
Don't you wish you had a life size condom to wrap penis boy with and flush him down the toilet??? I am glad however, that you are loving your new job. You deserve only the best.
from mommylap :
Yay for ursa! I hope you can tune out or get used to the penis, because I have been consoling myself with the idea of your busy work bliss in your absence.
from divamel :
welcome back, darlin'. my condolences on your penii wrinkle of a boss.
from starlight42 :
I can't believe that so many people responded to my liar entry!! apparently everyone knows someone like this...ya, isn't it weird that the Tigers are doing so well! And it's even a semi-nice day out today. Have a good weekend!
from divamel :
But the current state of Detroit sports makes Man Unit oh, so very happy. So I can't complain, yanno?
from gnomad :
ROFL! *falling back in chair, laughing helplessly* god i love you.

rrrrrrr....lovely painted twinkle toes. I am so proud of you and your new job position! You're the best Ursula! :0)
from gnomad :
heya schweetie pie! depends on the piece that needs to be covered, mostly. if it's just outline, alot of times the old design can be incorporated in the new, but i'd really have to see it to be able to tell you for sure. can you email me pics of the ones you want covered? i can take a look and let you know what i can do with them. (plus tell me what you want them covered up with, of course!)
from givemeabreak :
Wow! What a visual. Also, thanks for the kind words at my site regarding my "poor pitiful pearl" entry before going to see the Indigo Girls. You are soooo good to me. Love ya!
from nimiiwin :
Rats!
from mommylap :
I'm just glad that the home life is evening out the work-suck. It's good you stood up for your project's best interests. It's just like standing up for yourself being that there is so much of you in the project.
from nimiiwin :
Shaggy is your brother in law?!!!!!
from deli-cut :
And I thought our $150 electric bill was bad. Did they say it was an estimated bill and that they could send someone to read the meter if you didn't want to pay it?
from inkdragon :
They've seen worse than $3,647.00?!?!?! Holy Crap.
from nimiiwin :
Aw, thanks! I just took a few pictures last night and will have to take more soon but as soon as I get some, they'll be online. She really is cute! ;) And congrats on keeping your job, no matter how it happened! Thank God your boss had some sense of honor.
from inkdragon :
A mixed blessing perhaps, but it is good you are still employed. Maybe this is the door that should have been open to you a long time ago. Good luck not losing your mind in the meantime.
from bluecharis :
Congratulations! I think, keeping your job, when everyone around you has been laid off, tells you one thing for sure: YOU ARE DOING GREAT WORK!! :-)) All the best for the new challenges to come, I'm convinced you'll sail along smoothly... Love, Charis
from divamel :
Don't you just love those mixed blessings/messages? "You still have a job, we just can't tell you where." GAH! Either way, glad to hear that you're still employed. *squeezles*
from marn :
Thank you for the heartening note. I have my fingers crossed that this energizes folks to get themselves registered and vote. The last election was so unbelievably close ...
from starlight42 :
word of warning for Secondhand Lions...it was ok. But that's about it. I think you'll like the characters, but the movie itself really seems aimed more at children. Anyway, it's alwyas great to get your guy to watch a chick-flick!
from nina3eb :
All right, better late than never, right? Love the layout (but that's par for the course). Have you ever been to the little joint next to Cheese Castle? It's a little mom and pop joint, same stuff but much cheaper.
from divamel :
Me, too! I am down for some warm weather merry-making, mos' def!
from gnomad :
WOOT! Thanks for the note. You KNOW it, baybeeee. Pencil us in for if, theoretically, we ever DO have decent weather again. I'm alllll about it. Whee hee hee!!
from mommylap :
TOO FUNNY. I was totally talking about Betsey, but I didn't even see Anna last night. Betsey just does that all the time! And she's a great designer and can do whatever she wants. But not me. The "too old" thing is worse for me since I'm a mother. But it's not like we aren't both creative people in creative fields (ok my day job is not creative, but I can have whatever hair color I might want in it) and we should just exercise that right. When I am a famous designer not doing cartwheels you are going to be my webdesign queen. I am not even kidding. http://www.geocities.com/mommylap if you want to see my portfolio from my school days.
from mommylap :
Once again in love with your new template (l-u-v) and if you think it's exciting to find 6 new gb entries, imagine my delight in finding 3 new entries from ursa waiting my perusal. Again, you're the shit girl. Maybe if the non-profit thing doesn't work out you and I can be welders together and appear on Monster House.
from inkdragon :
Awesome photos! I did love the 80's. At least, the fads and fashions were original. You're definitely photogenic. Great luck with the job interview.
from inkdragon :
The little princess in boots is perfect. On the job front, I hope things turn out much better than you expect.
from divamel :
*hug* That *is* one of the sickest and most sadistic things I've ever heard. How is it that HR (with an emphasis on the H) can get so far fucking removed from performing simple humane acts? I will keep all digits crossed for you, darlin'.
from inkdragon :
This sucks. Sorry.
from givemeabreak :
you get 'em sister!
from cassiopeia- :
Happy Valentine's Day! kisses, cassie
from givemeabreak :
Hey Sexy girl, sounds like you have had some amazing things happening at work! Good for you. I am SURE you will NOT lose your job in the March layoffs...come on' you're the shit, and by all means tell them to take a big whiff, as you are the "feature" of a major magazine. Is that like a "major award"? :0) Penquin and Pigeon are adorable. My mother has B.B. (bad bird) and she is a peach faced girly girl. She is single, but makes do, if you get my drift. She is strange. I am sure Ms. Penguin will come around, afterall who could resist Pigeon??? We want the full report on TheGirl's science project!! Take Care.
from deli-cut :
Make sure you get off the can before flushing. It sounds like that toilet could suck your bowels right out.

I saw that too about eminems mom and cracked up!
from deli-cut :
Don't knock film snobs; I'm one, you know. I know what you mean about Yahtzee. Greg, Dennis, and I played and Dennis was all like, "I don't know how to play; please teach me," but I think he was sharking because he proceeded to kick our asses thoroughly.

HA! I've only seen six of them!! Happy weekend and don't worry too much... (I'll be trying to follow my own advice, too...) Love, Charis :-))
from spikeheap :
It's been a while. Love the new design (it's been that long). I'll have to read how the wedding went when I get another minute..... Anyway, yeah, hope married life is all you hoped it would be (in a good way of course...) Laterz :P
from givemeabreak :
Maybe it should be Gem Mistress U...whadda ya think? You go girl, you never stop amazing all of us little people. :0)
from bluecharis :
Yeah Ursula! Congratulations on the world record. Lovely game, that gems game, isn't it? Got it on my PC myself... Take care, love, Charis :-))
from nimiiwin :
I was wondering if you were ever gonna update again! You really shouldn't go so long and leave your fans wondering what on earth has happened to you!

Happy 2004!
from wifemotherme :
Happy New Year!
from mommylap :
Do consider that remembering him spontaneously now might be a greater tribute than had you followed up with everything right after your move. Your whole entry was a really nice reflection in general about how life moves on despite us too. Here's to hoping that every reader will help lift the heaviness of your heart.
from legalbeagle :
A beautiful tribute to neighbor Ron.
from divamel :
Darling, my darling...they do indeed take plastic. You are doomed.

Mmmh, I don't wanna rain on your parade and maybe it's just a word I didn't know just yet, but isn't emperor spelled emperor instead of emporer? :-)) Sorry! ;-)) Love, Charis
from gnomad :
OOOO!! OOOOOOO!!! I want a bumper sticker for my journal! My suspicions are confirmed .. you really ARE a goddess!!
from mommylap :
ooo I love the new template! The brown with blue makes me very very happy. The way you write about going to shows is almost enough to make me want to make the scene again. Maybe if I could go out in MI rather than MN..
from starlight42 :
I like the new design! Isn't that the most annoying thing when your guy eats your food?! I could just kill Dave everytime I come home and he's eaten all or most of my bag of chips or something like that! I try to train him, but it's not working :(
from inkdragon :
Wife v. 1.0 template...excellent!
from be-naked :
laurenrocks has moved to be-naked. word up.
from divamel :
Welcome back, sweetie! I, too, was worn down after it was all over. By the time the house got quiet again, all I wanted to do was sleep.
from starlight42 :
I love the pics! You all look great, the flowers are perfect too!
from gnomad :
WOOT!! Grats sweetie!!!!! And I totally hear you on the not remembering anything. Like, 6 months after our wedding we had all the pics together and I was looking at some saying 'when did THAT happen?' A theme that seemed to repeat itself for most of the evening. Anyway, congrats!! (big huge hug)
from mommylap :
Congratulations! The pics are great. Those are the best bridesmaid dresses I have ever seen in my entire life! Lucky bridesmaids!
from nimiiwin :
Congratulations! Your wedding pictures are beautiful and you do look so in love it could gag a person! :)
from bluecharis :
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Lovely to see you so happy! I wish you a pleasant marriage, heaps of kids or whatever you're wishing for!! By the way: Where's the fake Elvis, who married you? ;-)) Love, Charis :-) PS: Is Bonnie in one of the pictures?
from starlight42 :
Congratulations!! My friends are on their honeymoon right now in Vegas, isn't that funny? Anyway, wishing you love and happiness forever & ever, have the time of your life!
from dangerspouse :
DON'T DO IT! DON'T DO IT! It's a trap, designed to steal your youth and autonomy!! Get out while you...aw, fuck it. No one listens to me anyway. Well, as long as you're commited, good luck and have a kick ass honeymoon too :)
from inkdragon :
11/01/03 You'll be okay. Most women gets overwhelmed at the last minute and feels this way. "Why didn't we just elope?" In fact, I'm sure you're okay by now. Relax and settle in for a wonderful day of celebrating your love for OOMA!
from smartepants :
ps (this goes in conjunction with your smg entry I left you a min ago [10/31/03]...we should still go out for drinks tho!! I just wish it could have been in fuckin Vegas. Sonofabitch I hate myself~ and I hate michigan! IT SUCKS BEING HOME! alright I'll shut up - have fun sweets.
from mechanica :
I hate signmyguestbook. Came here via swcprincess and read 'til my eyes were sore. Happy Wedding day (i just wrote weeding, oops).

Aha! Now we know the Undisclosed Detroit Area Nonprofit! Good thing I'm on the other side of the state entirely or I'd now have to pester you relentlessly at work! Okay, just kidding ... I'm really not a stalker! :)
from mommylap :
Woo-hoo! That was great for me, ursa! And more importantly I only like "rubbish" blogs too. And most importantly- I like your brain. Once I build a stylish soapbox of my own, I will think of you if I mount it and shout.
from nimiiwin :
Thank you! And we wonder why our country is in the state it's in now? PS Your blog is not rubbish!
from deli-cut :
Just make sure he doesn't get glue traps. The little miceys have been known to chew through their own legs trying to get away. It's gruesome!
from gnomad :
Woo hoo!! Yep, we're in the same state (and that can be taken a number of ways ..) and I think it's excellent that you're saving a tatt for me. I'll let you know when I have gotten past making grapefruits scream and cry. Woo hoo! *foreheadsmooch* can't wait for the official DLand Tatfest!
from mommylap :
Your updates growing in frequency are yet another sign that my luck is improving. They usually fill me with inordinate glee. I have the meeses problem, and sadly, although I agree that one or two mice as permanent residents would be livable, there will soon be many, larger, bolder meeses everywhere. I have been in denial about this every Fall since I moved into my attic apt with dog owners below me. The mice all come up and they set up housekeeping. Since the traps make me sad and revolted, and since the athsmatic daddyman lives here no more, we are finally getting a kitten. Good luck with the humane traps. And the coffee.
from starlight42 :
I can also relate, as a MI non-profit. I would not be surprised if by next year I get the axe. Well, it was fun while it lasted huh? Or maybe not!
from divamel :
Ooo, do I feel you. My own Undisclosed MI-area Nonprofit is feeling the swing of the axe as well. So far, my project has been spared, but every day brings new terror for others...
from smartepants :
Thanks for the birthday text message! :)

wow, I feel for ya! what a mess, I hope it works out soon, and that your boss pulls her head out of her ass. Also, I did end up going to Planned Parenthood in Warren, they were nice. Still expensive, but what can you do? I guess I make enough money in their eyes to pay those outrageous amounts of money for birth control. It's still way cheaper than a regular pharmacy though!
from dragonbuds :
I was gonna say all kinds of things about the future MIL and then I read Teri's comments and all I have to say is "YEAH!" What an incredibly bitchy woman. I hope she comes down with an extra evil case of hives and has to stay in her hotel room your entire wedding day...all by her nasty self. Love the pictures of OOMA! Rise above it Girl. Lots of understanding love, Inkdragon
from spikeheap :
hell yeah some eye-pokeage is in order. Complaining that it's not convient. Jeez. And as for the arguing, you could always get them to poke each other in the eye(s) to save travelling expenses.:P
from starlight42 :
well, sounds like the wait won't be too long then. It was when I was going to Oakland County health that the wait was about 3-4hrs. I thought it might be like that at all of these clinics. Thanks for the info!
from starlight42 :
by the way, the wedding dress is very pretty.
from starlight42 :
Hey- quick question, that I hope you can answer. You mentioned that you used to go to the Planned Parenthood in Detroit, well, I made an appoitment at the one in Warren and I'm wondering how much time I should plan on being there. At Oakland county I was there about 3 hours, they were so backed up. When I asked the lady she said she couldn't give me ANY idea. Do you remember how long it was for you? All I need is an estimate you know? Like if it's an hour or like 4! Thanks!
from asilentplea :
hello =) Just thoguht id say that your new dress is very very pretty :) and ive just got back from a wedding so, i feel all superior on these things hehe xx
from phro :
Hey Ursa, I'm still loyally reading every word, don't you worry. I'm glad to hear the new dress took a weight off your mind; that means it was worth every penny. Peace, phro.
from grimm0826 :
That sounds like an AWESOME day! I'm glad it worked out so well. I don't think you're wrong to keep your maiden name as your middle name. Of course, it works with Graham. In a situation like Rodham-Clinton, with the little hyphen thingie, it's just tacky. Happy weekend!
from smartepants :
oh my god that is seriously like exactly what i did yesterday to sneak out, only i left an open bag of chips on my desk too hehe!
from starlight42 :
Hey Ursa, no you're right. College does not necessarily prevent poverty. I guess I was trying to make a quick point without going into too much depth. I should have clarified that by going to college or not having 4 kids might have given them a better chance or more skills...so on and so on. You're right though. I have a college degree too and it's in communications so that probably speaks for itself! It probably wouldn't save me from ever being poor, but I do think it helps me and will always help me, if not now, at least when this darn economy picks up! Any day now, let's hope :) Thanks for pointing out that error to me though. I'm glad you did.
from thisendup :
liked your week summed up. missed the part about what OOMA stands for but loved the rest. one year i watched football with my fella and made a lot of noise at inappropriate times (commercial breaks, announcer feedback, etc). when asked to shut it, i agreed but asked for a bit of attention on commercial breaks. i read a book during the game and ... oh, hell. you're smart enough to figure our your own answers.
from grimm0826 :
So...this is puzzling me...how did you sneak out of the office early, with your fingers stapled to the desk???
from starlight42 :
I believe one of the macomb country health places was a part of planned parenthood, but I'll have to double check. Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like you had a GREAT time in the blackout- I'm jealous. :)
from smartepants :
tomorrow the slurpees are BACK!
from grimm0826 :
Yeah, I've been in a three-day blackout, and all I have to say about this one is...better you than me! :-) Glad things went so well, though...
from motherlode :
THAT THING FREAKING RULES!
from givemeabreak :
I am DELIGHTED to know you have joined the Pearl Rabbit club. I have coveted that baby for many years now. Yes, indeedy OOMA is a good man! Sorry to hear your birthday was kinda bumpy...and about that raise. I was reading that pay raises have not been this low since the 1970's!! Can you believe that? I blame that little fucker at the white house. You go with your duct tape girl...who needs a mechanic anyway?
from mommylap :
You might be relieved (or saddened) to know that my TV boyfriend would be the dad on Grounded for Life as well. That show is my life had I known the fella whose spawn I nurture in high school. We love that show because had we met and fallen in love in high school, we both believe we would be happy.
from starlight42 :
wow, that was mean of him!!
from thecritic :
Ursa, Ursa, Ursa! I would love to review your fine ass diary, but I couldn't find a link to review-whore anywhere. Even a link in the profile would be fine. Just anything so that I can publicize my brand spankin' new, baby review site. Thanks. You rock!
from inkdragon :
Happy Birthday to You. Happy Birthday to You. Happy Biirrrrthday to Yooouuuuuuu. Happy Birthday to You! Enjoy!
from deli-cut :
You forgot to mention my favorite part of the Mark story: when he asked you to give him a recommendation! Ha ha ha!
from tonil823 :
Hi! Email me when you get a chance; just a few ?s. :D TIA!
from grimm0826 :
Good times are meant to be treasured...I hope you are treasuring yours! (Your guestbook wouldn't take this message for some reason...so I hope you get it here!)
from spikeheap :
Love the new design :p. Also, as a male in an increasingly politically correct world, I feel as though I should be offended by your 'protection' article. Unfortunately I don't really care for our increasing compensation-do-everything-to-please-everyone culture and I found it far too hilarious to actually take offence :p Something like that ..... :)
from inkdragon :
5 Question Madness! Post your questions and answers in my guestbook and on your diary. Link back to me. Also ask those who read your diary if they would like five questions. Keep the madness going! Ursala-Sweetie…here are your questions! 1. I miss your countdown to the showdown in the desert. Why did you choose the word showdown? 2. You have a career in the charity field. What issue do you feel most passionately about and to bring it to everyone’s attention to what extent would you be willing go to? 3. You’ve shared you have moved twenty two times in thirty two years. How did you cope with moving while you were in middle school and high school? 4. How do you spend your time when not with OOMA or at work? 5. How do you feel about your future step-daughter and how would you feel if she came to you for advice?
from marn :
I share your pain. I've learned to do whatever I can, so that there are fewer things to drive me crazy. And he does eventually get around to things. Eventually. One of my friends has it so tough she had to teach herself finish carpentry--her husband is a carpenter, like mine, but he had zero interest in working on their place! Aye carumba.
from crazywicked :
well, that was certainly interesting.
from starlight42 :
I should work in Detroit so I can get homeless people asking me to marry them too...a perk? You sound like my sister with the laundry.
from ursaminor2 :
How the hell did ya get ursamajor?! did ya have to sign up 50 years ago or what? You didn't even have to pop a number on the end! hrmph...ok I am fine... I wont hate you for your call name. Besides I feel automatic boob bondage. Ok that didn't come out right. I mean..well ok lets just say I have had the whole infected boob thing (a couple of times actually), myself. Not fun...Granted it was after I had my daughter and I was breast feeding (Ick also not fun). Anyway, my boobs are pitifully small, as in, I wear a B" because I refuse to wear an A" but I could get away with either. Anyway, The dang thing swelled up, but only on one side. So I looked...deformed. Fun fun. Back to normal now though. No lumpage anywhere. Yeah for that I guess. Take Care!
from motherlode :
no worries, i'm in no hurry :) *stockpiles latex items*
from starlight42 :
fyi- the nerd that left you a note with the diarytag thing was me. I forgot I was logged in!! anyway, hope you are feeling better. that's funny about the little girl.
from diarytag :
I know, that snow storm just about killed me! But alas, it's sunny and warm out today!
from deli-cut :
It's not all OOMA's fault; it's my fault, too. Every April I think about the year it snowed during Naked Mile, then I think about how the CTA shuts off the heaters at the el stops on April 1, then I remember that it usually snows during the first week of April, then all hell breaks loose.
from shawntasy :
ur survey kicked ass. hehe i'm a dork
from marn :
I've been dithering over this tat for eons. Paul did this design six months ago and when I still loved it after all that time, I KNEW it was the right choice. But aye yi yi it smarted.
from ursaminor2 :
ya, ya, ya, hehehe all ya want, your diary looks WAY cooler than mine, YOU actually bought the membership, AND ya got my name....I am trying not to hate you.....no I wont, I can be rational....I can be rational........j/j, congrats on the marraige thing.
from ms-m :
Dammit! I bet you two are a trip to know in real life! Congrats on the slippage of the ring.
from ms-m :
Congratulations! Congratulations! Congratulations! Though a life of football and power could get tiresome.... You'll have to switch it up a little and turf staplers around the office and make Ooma high light your favourite shows in the TV Guide. Gotta love make busy work.
from marn :
I really couldn't believe what I was seeing. I wish I could have scraped up the nerve to let him know about his um escapee but I just couldn't.
from cariboutwo :
You got it! I'm taking a break from my usually defensive stance and accepting all the support I can get! (I think we can do it!)
from jason75 :
at least you didnt Laugh out loud!
from abwhite :
God I miss Detroit food! People here in New Orleans think I'm insane, but you can only stand so much good cajun food and sub-standard everything else! And some people don't like pork, dammit! Good luck on getting a proper proposal. My husband proposed while I was ironing his shirt. He was mooning me at the time....
from cosmicfish :
Hello! I said I'd leave you a note so I did! Slurpee dork..heh heh...that made me laff!
from sinsualmynd :
if you're wondering how to get in just use 2204. i know you are probably dying of sinsualmynd diary entry deprivation...hey..i heard that was a fatal disease. *lol*
from deli-cut :
I didn't think Detroit Metro had food. Remember all the lawsuits after the New Year's blizzard? Hey... that's how Osama was going to defeat us... by leaving us stranded at the airport with no food!
from charmcity :
Hee... Funny name combos in your Mutual Admiration Society. (or: 'It's funny b/c they're next to eachother!) "ForAllWeKnow GirlsSuck", "MrsRobinson OnMyMind", and "Warning XHardCoreX" Yes I do think waayyy too much....
from crankydragon :
Awww, Princess! The Hub and I went to a concert before we were married and tried to see Kansas and Bob Dylan. The five foot tall Crankydragon saw lots of heads and middles of backs. I seem to recall we got into a fight and left. Are the makers of platform shoes trying to add insult to our injuries? :)
from strawburygrl :
I do believe that you left off a tag after your link to your older entries. Anywhere I float my mouse on your page other than another link, it wants to take me to your older page!
from vampiria :
congrads on the whole employment thing. I knew you had it in you. your slacking time is now over. lol
from charmcity :
hee hee... i left you a no-ote!
