Me and Jaylinn.

"Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and
he'll be warm for the rest of his life."
Terry Pratchett

Terence David John Pratchett (known to some fans as Pterry) is an
English fantasy author (born April 28, 1948, in Beaconsfield, Bucks),
best known for his Discworld series.

Other Terry Pratchett Quotes:

"A Thaum is the basic unit of magical strength. It has been universally
established as the amount of magic needed to create one small white
pigeon or three normal-sized billiard balls."

"An ancient proverb summed it up: when a wizard is tired of looking for
broken glass in his dinner, it ran, he is tired of life."

"Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you
anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can. Of course, I could be

"Five exclamation marks, the sure sign of an insane mind."

He was the sort of person who stood on mountaintops during thunderstorms
in wet copper armour shouting "All the Gods are bastards."

"Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages."

People who are rather more than six feet tall and nearly as broad across
the shoulders often have uneventful journeys. People jump out at them
from behind rocks then say things like, "Oh. Sorry. I thought you were
someone else."

"Rincewind formed a mental picture of some strange entity living in a
castle made of teeth. It was the kind of mental picture you tried to
forget. Unsuccessfully."

"The universe, they said, depended for its operation on the balance of
four forces which they identified as charm, persuasion, uncertainty and

"They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half
so bad as a lot of ignorance. "

could do is give them a meaningful look."

making drug use that much more appealing

I didn't get the job.

And I dyed my fucking hair brown for the interview.

I think I need me a knight on a white horse, and I know no one will come, and once again, I've got to save myself, 'cept this time, I'm so so tired.

it's not fair.

when once I raised mountains for people I loved, now I'm drowning and no one's around.

But maybe that's my fault.

I love doing this. Really.

No, really.

$650 - roommate sought for hollywood hills / runyon canyon apartment
Date: 2004-04-10, 12:29AM PDT
This is a nice, medium-sized 2-bed, 2-bath apartment right near the border between Hollywood and West Hollywood, on a quiet street but within walking distance of the Chinese Theatre, Runyon Canyon, several movie theatres and lots of bars, clubs and restaurants. The room for rent has its own bathroom, a wall a/c, and an entire wall full of mirrored closets. Water is paid; there is no gas; and electric is split every two months. Cable and phone would be your responsibilities. There is underground secured parking; the unit is carpeted; laundry room downstairs; we have a large garden patio; there's a pool, billiards room, sauna and jacuzzi in the back (which I never use, but you might). Kitchen is relatively large and well-appointed for those who like to cook. No pets. When it comes to drinking and drugs I don't care what you do as long as it doesn't get me in trouble and you don't puke in the living room. I don't smoke, and if you do I'd prefer you do so outside on the patio. I've lived here for quite some time and have always had female roommates; this time I am open to male and female. My biggest pet peeve is people eating my food. The main area is kept relatively clean and tidy but my room is a mess, and I've been known to leave dishes in the sink; so if you know you're a real neat freak, I would probably get on your nerves after a while. I keep late hours and am always rushing off to work or social stuff, so quite often we'd be ships passing in the night.
I'm in search of a low-maintenance roommate with a similarly busy work / social schedule and a flexible, easygoing attitude. I'm rarely home but when I am I'm quiet and don't often have guests. The apt itself is pretty fully furnished but your room is not. Looking for a pleasant roommate with whom I can coexist peacefully. Underground parking w/ no extra fee, secure building. $600 security deposit, refundable when you move out; rent is month-to-month although I'd prefer people stay for at least six months: this "looking for a roommate" thing blows.
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
this is in or around hollywood and la brea

great mysteries of life

Men of the world. Answer me this.

You meet a girl through friends. You didn't know each other before. You meet up at a local bar for a date. It's a great date. She's cute. You have a blast. You talk for hours. You kiss her goodnight. It's a great, long, drawn-out goodnight kiss. You correspond via email within two days to tell her you had a great time and you should do it again.

A week goes by. Then ten days. Then two weeks.

She emails you to unsubtly say she'd be thrilled to see you.

Why don't you CALL?

You all suck, each and every one of you.


4.5.2004, 7:36 pm:

Oh. You just were hung over when she called, and then busy all weekend, but you wrote her promptly on Monday to ask her out again.


Women of the world, why do we panic?
