Men make a difference.

Just as information wants to be free, web personalities want to be exhibitionists.

If I yelp like a schnauzer, well, please understand and pat my shoulder accordingly.

Favorite Female Baby Name: Molly Caitlyn

My spine is bendy. I have flat feet. Eeek! (frames)

I bought jasmine, and a spreading rose, and capsicum and tomato and basil and strawberry and mint and coriander seedlings.

For a brief moment I thought I might have actually bought something um, you know, kind of groovy.

Who was she that they loved her but couldn't bear to hear me speak a word?

I'm nervous about messing with the relative harmony we've achieved with our other two dogs.

The fuzzy, gray kapok clung to my housecoat, leaking like powdered blood from the open wound in the side of the envelope.

Within me, I felt a quiet but huge change click effortlessly into place.

We all nodded in support and agreement, but that kind of brutal honesty scared the crap out of us.

The child in me is pissed because this woman is horning in on us.

But it could not possibly ever be enough for me to say anything cheesy like "God bless us, every one!"

I should do an hour or so every night.

You have to be grateful for what you can get.

My friend Christy is on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire today.

Every year about this time I start to realize how close it is to Christmas and how little prepared I am.

65 MPH with a tree tied to the top of my car was ... interesting.

Really good tripe is so hard to find.

The sounds coming from your apartment takes up too much space and I can't detach myself long enough to form a complete sentence.

I felt sorry for her, but man, that was worth the price of five years of kitty litter.

So how do you go about making friends, of the kind that matter?

I'm sure every gamer geek thinks they're different from everyone else they see huddled around a folding table in the unfinished back room of the comic shop.

By the time I get off, it's reached that nice pre-peak equilibrium - just comfortably full.

Every card, in summary, means: Thinking of you.

I'm looking forward to sending New Year's cards.

How horrible, hateful, and irritating the comma yo is to me?

He fell under my spell.

I will keep you posted on the torrid details of our hot love affair.

You're a foul one, Mr. Visa

The traffic reports have stopped naming accident locations because there are just too many of them.

I guess it's imperative to have 5 gallons of milk and 18 rolls of toilet paper when you're looking at 1 to 3 coming your way.

Today has been a day of bad smells.

The long and the short of it is that I started taking stock of who I am and what Iím doing.

My curves are indeed abundant, I have a round belly and real hips and my ass will likely never see a size 8 in this lifetime, but so what- I'm wearing a snug velvet dress anyway.


I can't believe how much better I work in the middle of the night.

the promise of a four o'clock bus has me striding, legs burning, in an almost-run, two at a time stairs and escalators, across elizabeth, down hunter, across pitt, through the arcade, down through the tunnel, up and up and up to york.

I hate it when guys don't call back; it drives me crazy when anyone says "yeah, let's get together soon" when they don't mean it.

reason number one that I *never* use my computer as an alarm clock...

We could probably be jailed for some of the things we think.

Shop shop shop glance at watch wait in line shop shop write check shop shop get more stuff shop shop pause consider glance shop shop shop...

The millennium's ending and it's taking me with it.

I feel creative and fulfilled and shit, but how do some of you find the time!?

Now that I'm out of the desert I can see a little more clearly what I want and what I don't want.

and I never - no never - come back - never found.

The idea is so cool; it's like radio with no obnoxious Disk Jockeys or commercials, with perfect audio quality.

Itís a funny thing, Christmas. I mean, for a Jew.

She's not exactly like her suffer-no-fools online persona, although the sharp wit seen in many of her posts is also apparent in real life--a quality for which I have a great appreciation.

Y'know, I think I'm still not over the demise of Archipelago, the wonderful webring that Lucy used to run.

It was only that long ago that we took over a chocolate zucchini cake and talked about their cat that had been missing for several weeks.

if not, this is going to be an awful long xmas holiday as he is off work most of the time between now and new year's.

Make sure that someone watches It's a Wonderful Life with my mom, and that Dad finds the A Christmas Story marathon on TNT early in the day so he gets to see it, nap, see it, nap and see it again.

Instead, because I'll never be able to go to school full time, it looks like I could be a librarian by 2007.

Until next Christmas, that is. Of course, there's always the Boxing Day sales.

Finding a kindred spirit.

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house

It's one of the last High Church Anglican parishes left, where incense, elaborate processions, robes and latin intonations are commonplace, and I love it.

We update on Christmas Even.

Obviously, Christmas in Australia, for me, feels very different from Christmas at home (I have to stop calling Ireland 'home' - it's hard.)

we even managed to find mabel a nice winter coat for her annual new year's gift.

You can tell me until you're blue in the face how much you defend the right to keep and bear arms, how it's your constitutional right and damned if you'll give it up, but I will never listen to you about it.


I believe that is is acceptable to be Catholic and disagree with parts of Catholicism.

The highlight of X-mas was of course, getting my Tivo.

It wasn't because of the gifts, which as I've observed grow less in number the farther one gets from childhood, but because it's been a time for family reunions and such.

So, after breakfast on Sunday, we made a run for the border.

As I stepped through the door and into the chilly darkened evening and waited for my dad to pick me up I breathed a sigh of relief.

After frantically downloading and trying out six programs in 2 days I might have found my WYSIWYG HTML editor.

Yeah yeah yeah, I've heard the rationalists get pissy about how it's only our calendar that changes over and that it's not like the next year is going to be magical or better just for a number. But let's have at least a little bit of magic.

The smell of chlorine makes me feel incredibly lonely.

My mom sent along an old email I had sent her, from a trip I had taken to the left coast to visit my dad.

You people who live a few hours from your family? I live 24 hours from mine, and after today I have no idea when Iíll see most of them again.

"My past is coming back to haunt me," thought the mother on the drive home.

Particles that seem to dance forever in little dust ballets with nowhere to go until they tire and find a lamp or tabletop to fall asleep on.


What are you doing, New Year's Eve?
