Shit! Why didn't someone tell me all this sooner? I could'ev been workin' it for the last twenty-eight years, but nooooooo! I've been playing Miss Goody-Two Shoes. Damn, hate that! Hate bein' the last one in on a trend.

Yes, cat, all it would have taken was an axe in the head, and you could have had all that you ever dreamed of.

Hey, what do you think of the new layout? I came to realize that most people visiting the site these days have monitors that take up their entire living room, and adjusted the template accordingly to make it more honkin-huge-friendly, while still accommodating the poor old-fashioned back country folk with only monitor-sized monitors.

I'm kind of a lurker. I tried to join your notify list some time ago, but for some reason I haven't gotten any. So anyway, I check in from time to time, just haven't said hello. I just recently quit smoking, so I'll come back and say hello again when I'm in better spirits. :)

How odd. I'll add your email to the notify list right now, Janet. It may have been malfunctioning when you tried to add it.

As for smoking - reached the "overwhelming desire to gnaw through hardwood furniture" stage yet?

Found the answer, Janet. A confirmation email was sent to you when you first signed up with a URL you needed to click to confirm your email was valid. It never put you on the list because it says you never confirmed. I can bypass that, I think, but you may want to email help@notifylist.com to make sure.

I did send an e-mail to that help address and they never responded. Sadly, I gave up. I swear I never received that confirmation e-mail. If you can bypass it, please do. Otherwise I'll just check in here every day or so like a good little stalker. I'm gnawing over here. And eating, a lot. :(

But I've always had such admiration for those splendid consumptive Victorian-novel Civil-War women with marvellously heightened colour and flushed cheeks and glittery eyes who steadfastly refused to give up, and bravely went out and buried their war dead and planted the cotton crops and selflessly did good deeds for others and rescued shipwrecked sailors and rambled dementedly all over the moors in the rain, and now you've gone and spoiled it all for me. (What about chocolate craving, then? Where would that rate?) Love, R xxx

That's right, Hiss - no one.

*waves* Hi again, Boofka. Nice to hear from you again. Does having two assholes mean you can eat twice as much and not gain any excess weight? I'm sure there are some gay men out there who would kill for two assholes.

No lurking here babycakes, you onna the few faves left that I actually READ.
Smoochies baby, and congrats on being of the twelvish beernesses.
Yes, I purposely throw out that "percent" business as I favor volume over drunknor content.
Watch out for deer.

I'm not a lurker, but I'd like to think that breaking my nose due to falling on my face in a grenade pit qualifies me to be Chosen. Also, I looooove you!

First time reader, hehe, very nice to meet you! Good to know I can find more fun stuff (you) at 12 beer!

Meany, a broken nose isn't nearly impressive enough. Now, if there had been a live grenade inside the grenade pit when you fell in, that would count for something.

Judd - I'm blushing. I promise not to tell your wife.

Paula - being a Beermate isn't exactly an award. It's more like being committed to a mental institution where you can hang around people of your own kind.

This entry reminds me of an episode of House. Don't know if you watch it or not, but a little girl has terminal cancer and everyone keeps going on and on about how brave and wonderful she is. House makes the comment that EVERYONE who is dying of a disease becomes wonderful and brave.

De-lurking. Huzzah. Love your stuff. Hilarious, well-written, straight-forward, awesome. (I'm on my way out the door, so pardon the caveman talk. I swear I can put together a real sentence on occasion.)

Hello, I'm a lurker. And now I'm not! Hooray! That was easy. Anyway, you do good writing and have a design that makes looking at the good writing pleasant in itself. Have an award from me.

I agree. In fact I'd go a step further and say those who intentionally and not at all accidentally put themselves in danger.. like on Jackass™ are no more awesome or enlightened. I can get a tattoo of myself! I can swallow pig vomit! I can sear my flesh and conscience with a hot iron! Yeah! What doesn't kill us makes us stronger! I'm going to go jump in front of a car and hope I live to become invincible. Either way, I'll be a hero.

As of Mar. 26, 2007, only Diaryland members will be able to post comments. Hopefully this will change soon, but I'm being spammed with 40-50 porn links in my comments pages a day, and it has to stop.

name stuff:

email stuff:

url stuff:

comment stuff (HTML functional - and these comments
do NOT add automatic linebreaks.
You'll need to use the HTML
code <br> to add them):

Get me the hell back where I came from!
