holy god, it's been a while. glad to hear everything is going well.
from pollux :
having just gone through the emergency weekend pet thing myself, i can tell you that there are nyc vets who will look at your critter between 5PM on friday and 7AM on monday. they will, of course, demand your first and second born children in return, but that's what makes new york such a special place to live, right?
from ladybugge :
Hi again. I've found that it's a good idea to give the rabbits each one pineapple ring. I buy a can of pineapple rings in their own juice, ten rings, keep 'em in the fridge 'til their gone (unless you like to eat a lot of pineapple). There are also tablets, Bromelain is the pineapple enzyme, I can't remember the name of the papaya (papayin?) which works as well. I don't recommend yogurt for rabbits (I raise the angora rabbits, have about twenty these days). The other thing to look out for which the vets don't tell you about is diarrhea. Often in the spring, but sometimes other times, they will get an attack of diarrhea - you can give them the generic anti-diarrheal from the local pharmacy, it's safe and it works. Also, give lots of hay and alfalfa cubes, kitchen scraps, &tc. It's actually much safer and better for them (don't give too much bread & crackers, though). It's the store bought grain which aggravates both conditions, and they don't really need much of it if at all. Sorry, had not intended to lecture, just wanted to pass along what I've learned the hard way.
from ladyvaduva :
I hope phoebe's better.. cheers cat
from scanzilla :
Hey thanks for the birthday wishes! Yes today really is my birthday, or rather would be my birthday if I wasn't a corpse now. :)
from beatnicltd :
so are you saying the last email I sent was lost? ...or will you (hopefully) be able to access it at some time in the near future? Egad, I hope we don't have a repeat of the first attempt at contact on our hands.
from vancookie :
hooray. good for you. i say, relax and don't relax at the same time. or put it this way, do something every day toward your next job. the rest of the time, relax. short advice from someone long in the tooth. and anyway, i am anxiously awaiting more frequent diary entries!! also, let's talk ballet. also, please invite me to the beach. i'll take a "sick" day and join you. seriously.
from beatnicltd :
I sent you an email...but I don't exactly know your address, so I sent it to your hotmail account. I just thought I'd alert you to that, in case you never check that one.
from beatnicltd :
I hope that the poor rabbits are confiscated and adopted by rabbit guardians as well! My part of NY is so small, that kind of animal abuse isn't really a problem (no pet store for thirty minutes even), but that's sad news to hear.
from rumblelizard :
I went to a pet store kind of like that the last time I went to Florida. It was a store that specialized in lizards, snakes and other repitles and amphibians. I was literally white and shaking and trying not to puke within minutes - cages WAY too small, dead lizards mixed in with live lizards and the live lizards had to walk on the dead, no food, baking in the sun in some cases, improper lights in others. It was like friggin' Auschwitz for reptiles. People don't seem to understand that they're living creatures with feelings and needs, not inanimate profit centers for greedy inhumane trolls. It makes me really sad. And angry.
from ladybugge :
I like the new layout. L
from maxg :
i used to be dataguy
from ladybugge :
What a wonderful image. Thank you for sharing that memory. I like the idea of the trees stirring up the wind, trees are so friendly somehow.
from pollux :
good to have you back.
from sparklieolie :
Don't worry! We all love you!
from rumblelizard :
Good job of talking me out of it, there, veggiedog! That's the last time I ever turn to YOU for a voice of reason! ;D
from hodpodge :
thanks for the continued access. i deleted your note. sorry about your troubles in cyberspace. i can't believe someone could have so much trouble over indie rock?
from beatnicltd :
Waited all night to read your message (because of the server change), then immediately deleted it as suggested...so I canít really remember what it said. I took down the password, though, so thanks. I will now enjoy my continued access to your diary.
from rumblelizard :
God, what is with people these days?? Thanks for the note, I'll delete it right away.
from ladybugge :
Hi there. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a password (the note is deleted now). I'd miss you if I got locked out. I can't seem to figure out how to use the password? Or i have it wrong. Please send me email msmlmahler@mac.com Thanks L
from rumblelizard :
Word up! I was meditating on the bizarreness of religion on my way to work today too. I was also a Catholic kid, now an agnostic. I think it would be a wonderful thing if all religious people suddenly realized how weird they were being and suddenly converted to pragmatic, utilitarian humanism. Sigh. you may say I'm a dreamer...
from burkenstocks :
you are so lucky. nosebleeds? man. now we can bleed together, and that's so fucking emo.
from kjizel :
can't say that I do... especially since Westerville is only about a mile away from a bustling metropolitan area and capital of Ohio... Columbus... that's where I actually live.
from burkenstocks :
i even think "(bring us in) good ale" had some sort of religious lyric-work. the part where it went "bring us in good ale, bring us in good ale, we love jesus christ and that's why we're drinking good ale." i'm surprised leeann didn't pick up on that..
from vancookie :
k-- just spent my lunchtime reading through more old entries of yours. nice! i had a great time visiting this weekend. d.
from cherrrybomb :
Stumbled onto joe's diary, and now your's. How nice to be able to spend christmas at YOUR place, and not have to travel to see family. My husband and I just bought a house, and are learning to put our foot (feet?) down with the "holiday issue." We live too close to get away with it well, but it's working-- slowly but surely. I'll be back to read more.
from vancookie :
there are a lot more stories to tell. let's all get together again soon soon soon......
from vancookie :
hi. i'm a dland buddy of joe's. i just read your entry about google. ugh. i went through a short nightmare about that. my diary is a secret from my "real" friends & family, and for a couple days i thought someone who knows me in the physcial realm had sniffed me out in the digital realm. eek. i went into paranoid lockdown mode, adding a password to my diary, etc. then another dland buddy sent me some code to stick in my template to prevent further google hits. it worked! champagne for me! i like your diary by the way.
from pearljamie :
Yeah, how about that snow? I had to work a full day and trekked through the brown slush to get to the N train today, my jeans soaked to the ankle. I never believe the weather people when they say it's going to snow because it never does - who knew they'd finally be right?
from cuillin :
Ohhhh the list of 'professionals' I've talked to over the past 13 years are longer than my arms and legs combined. I'm really the only one who can work it out. And you weren't cliched or condescending, trust me. I really appreciated the note. xoxoxoxoxoxo
from cuillin :
P.S. and i thought i was the only one with a 20 pound cat!
from cuillin :
you've got to let me know when that issue comes out, and which one you are! what a funny story.
from burkenstocks :
glamour magazine; that is so hot. we should keep our eyes peeled in the event that it gets thrown online or printed. oh. which reminds me -- speaking of leeann, glenn gave me a piece of paper from one of his cosmo notepads that says, in purple, "fun fearless female." i wish i worked for a great magazine like cos--wait. i wish i worked for a great magazine..
from hodpodge :
Phoebe is the name of our 20 pound feline. She is really puking a lot lately. I thought I had read that was your bunny's name. What excellent taste you have. Sorry about your allergy shot - I can't stand needles.
from beinghuman :
yes, just kidding. someone told me the other day that he'd committed suicide, and that just seemed to ruin the image he had for me, as though it might possibly have been a charade. this person wouldn't believe me that he died of cancer, but his theory certainly damaged my conviction. does make you think, though, doesn't it. what if bob ross HAD done that? or something like faked his own death in the supposed tupac-esque manner, giving new meaning and new popularity to all of his televised works? i should shut up now to avoid putting my foot in my mouth again. but yes, i knew it was cancer. still sucks, though. i loved his "happy little bushes."

from beinghuman :
i really really loved bob ross. i love everything pbs, except "zoom" and "barney & friends", but when i found out bob ross committed suicide, i lost my sense of all that was real and shrouded under an afro.
from thebrenda :
my best friend is a funeral director, and resides above a funeral home. her birthday is ALSO on christmas eve. .. coincidentally eerie, i say.
from emogrrrl :
reminds me a little of fight club -- that scene where he was talking about the formulas to figure out if there should be a recall. it's kind of playing god.
from lostplatypus :
Hey, I just found you thanks to the wonder of BANNERS. Love your stuff!!!! You'll be a fave of mine. By the way, I agree with your entire voting RANT - Power to the people (and hamsters, too)!
from sirsadok :
votin' iz hard, but i done gone and pulled that thar leever.
from burkenstocks :
katie, you should totally be a protest speaker. i was all, "i'm going to vote today, for sure" - and then i realized that, despite my newfound ambition, i am still not legally registered to vote in the state of new york. bugger.
from scanzilla :
My god! My urine does stink!
from beatnicltd :
why, there is a cat on your head!
from chick33 :
Hi! I found your journal through a link, and read your posting on Bowling For Columbine. I hope you don't mind - if you do, just tell me and I will of course stop. I loved your entry, by the way. I'm a Canadian, and I saw the movie last weekend - it made me endlessly grateful for having been born in my country (no offense to you and yours, however). I second your call that every citizen of America (and for that matter, every citizen who has access, American or not) should go see the movie. It's <i>excellent</i>.
from sirsadok :
Bacchus is right, yo! Do you think he has a beard? I know that he prefers sparse clothing, but I think weather will prevent me from being totally accurate. ;)
from hodpodge :
Hey Veggiedog! I just read your note (I'm so glad someone leaves 'em) - I was working downtown when they were filming the 8 mile movie and I can assure you it will feature the real almost alive D landscape so tell the nobelieving bf he owes you a movie ticket. Happy Saturday!
from cuillin :
No, this school wasn't in Columbus...this was in Montgomery, Alabama. I went to quite a few high schools.
from burkenstocks :
c'mon -- you know you want to try it. i always think, passing the liquor store, "remy red, for a remy red sunrise.. or jack daniels, for a night of throwing up in the toilet?" and the girl with red hair in the ad? it's like the poor man's knock-off of the band girl from "american pie" fame. talk about some bullshit. -joe.
from ambitious :
thank you so much for the compliment, i actually did the drawing, but i have always held alot of respect for scheile. his grotesque style always inspires me.
from cuillin :
you are SO adorable!!!
from pearljamie :
hey, if I ever left my house I'm sure I'd see you! :) Astoria is such a small world though, I have no doubt I'll be running into you one of these days. To tell the truth, you already look familiar... hmmmm...
from hodpodge :
If you would like, I can start posting photos of the various street fashion combos decorating the metro detroit area. I prefer the "mule with the satin sports jacket" look. Scarf with flops must be a haute big city mutation of the sport socks and sandals in february ensemble so well known to michiganders. By the way - your bunny is fabulous.
from ebm :
your bunny is insane! SO CUTE. My 2 are in foster care while I construct them some sort of deluxe weatherproof hutch on the balcony... anyway.. "hello" to you and phoebe
from cuillin :
oooh, I gotta learn that MW gang sign! to confuse the Confederates, ya know. Maybe they'll send me home.
from cuillin :
my diary must look like a mess! it actually goes off the page?? i made the page a year ago in 1024, and all the changes made since were in 800, A MESS, I tell you! no idea how to fix it, since while it looks totally different from how it did on my old computer, it looks semi-normal on this one. argh. this is what it said below the manatees: "Sea cows belong to the Animal Kingdom group called "Sirenia". In ancient Greek mythology, it was the "Sirens" who sang so melodically from their island that sailors would be entranced, lured closer, and crash their boats against the rocks."
from jesusphreak :
Ok, like I told your boyfriend, sorry if I offended you. I think it's cool to do your own thing, and people are going to have a difference in beliefs. So, I mean, sometimes I make things come out and sound worse then they can actually be. Don't read too much into it. Please. -Hannah
from pearljamie :
how on earth can you live in astoria and NOT have been to the beer garden? Chilly, schmilly - beer makes you all warm and fuzzy :)
from pearljamie :
I think we could possibly live next door to one another and not even know it. I'm Ditmars, what stop are you? :)
from symbiotic :
i'm so excited that they've FINALLY started the mosaics. that is so cool that you saw a potential mole person. my friend just read that book "the mole people" and he's all into them now.
from pearljamie :
I guess the third person read my diary and took me off their favorites. No matter. I'm not letting it keep me up, but at the time it was so maddening I could puke. Thanks for having my back!
from burkenstocks :
another thing i forget to tell you, katie -- NADER was leading the protest with a speech on wall street. so, there you go.
from cuillin :
oooh, i forgot about priceline -- thank you! maybe i'll get out of here after all. if you saw Sloan in Toledo, it's true that it's possible I saw them in Columbus...on the other hand, I could just be a complete moron confusing them with some other "S" band from the cow and corn state. MUCH different from Nova Scotia! (p.s. thanks for adding me!)
from burkenstocks :
and since i was going to leave you a message saying something i just spoke to you about, i will just say, instead, "yeah, i am excited to see what comes of those cutouts at 28th street." it's not as exciting, but..
from burkenstocks :
sloan's from nova scotia. whenever they release a new album, everyone in canada gets the day off from school and all the kids run through the street screaming and waving their arms.
from cuillin :
P.S. Isn't Sloan from Columbus, Ohio? Where I'm originally from? Those are hazy years, but I recall seeing them play in a tiny pizza place in the very early 90's. I could be wrong.
from cuillin :
That's probably the nicest thing anyone's ever said about my poetry, you know. And I love Waterhouse....The image I had up before this one was his "Sleeping Beauty", which was simply gorgeous. Aurora and her two handmaids, collapsed upon each other on the castle steps. If I continue to impress, huh. What pressure! ;) Well, you'll have read the 8 billion old entries I have, because as of late I'm not all that impressive, really. You're already going to be one of my 'favourites', and that's just from the one entry I read of yours today. Lovely. -- take care, Sarah
from symbiotic :
that is so coincidental. i wasjust in bear mountain this weekend.
from m0ok :
You'd be amazed how few times I've seen menstrual blood on toilet seats ;)
from autumnal :
im a veggie (9 + years) although i hate beggie dogs... ;) cute idea tho...
from symbiotic :
walking across the bklyn bridge is one of my favorite things to do.
from k-w-e :
i love veggie dogs too. and i want to live in nyc. your life sounds pretty good to me.
from fearless2all :
ohh very awesome diary
from aura-beth :
nevermind, It worked the second time. Heh.
from aura-beth :
do you have the address for that picture? I want to see it but the links not coming up. send it to <aura_roy@angelfire.com>
from sipthis :
Really enjoyed reading your diary.
from astoria :
hey -- I went to school in MI, live in Queens, love veggie dogs, and think your diaryland is great! dundles
from uberjnet :
i've gone insane over your layout....it's wonderful....and the diary's not bad either. :)
from hodpodge :
Thanks for your note fellow (former) michiganian - I can't believe that the McDonalds Flurry spoons actually remind someone else of the gyno. I was on a strict reeses "McFlurry schedule" this summer and I have always thought the spoons were obscene.
from m0ok :
That 'O' is a '0'. A zero ;)
from bexx :
V- Yeah way to go veg head! How long has it been? I have been one for 7 years. -Bexx Pixies are cool!
from sweet-avenue :
i just re-read that and it sounded like i was trying to sound cool. i wasn't. i'm totally not cool at all and i know it. :)
from sweet-avenue :
well, that's cool. to tell you the truth though it's all about blake for me. i've been a big fan of his since the jawbreaker days. his lyrics have always been what attracted to jtb and jawbreaker. of course the music is great as well, but the lyrics kill me. all the guys in the band are really genuine, nice people.
from joliecerveau :
love the layout and that you're a veggie. me too :)
from lasttiamat :
I just have to say. You have possibly the best color scheme for a journal, for a website, for friggin' anything, I have ever come across.
from burkenstocks :
..and now i feel so bad for having purchased the gift certificate at "Ghetto Nailz" (the brooklyn location). i thought the slogan was just in good fun.. "Where you can get yo'PAIN-on."
