poor glory has been defining herself on flickr conversationally since april of last year. without a camera. (poor me!) however ---and gents and dolls, this is a mighty great *however* --- a camera is almost within reach. we're talking two weeks tops, here.

YAY for that. YAY a HUNDRED MILLION TIMES. i am so freaking excited. wee!

so. it's a great time to begin a journal. this way i get to chronical my anticipation from the very beginning to its delightful finish -- complete with what i hope will be awe-inspiring digital images. i dearly love inspiring myself and i look so very cute with my jaw dropped open and my eyes all sparkling and everything. wait and see! xoxo

Hey 30 is sexy!! Flaunt it!

Glad you got my postcards hon, but I sent them from Rome LOL
I even explained some... maybe you weren't able to read my horrible handwriting lol Yeah those are places I hang out at.
hope you liked them!

And btw... SHIT i must have missed this... but.... YOU WERE ASSAULTED??? WTF Who the heck did this to you?
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Just keep batting those eyes, baby, and no-one will notice your injuries, about which you are probably oversensitive.

Glad you got the postcard. It seems ages since you were asking for them (or was that Jonathan)?

And please reconsider about the nude pic on the birthday thread? I think that would be a first.
drab chicken [deleted] 11 years ago
doh! i said spain but i meant rome. i know they are from rome! it has a big old stamp on it that says ROMA FIUMICINO CMP, for gods sake. haha --and i dunno what it means but i think it'd sound sexy whispered into my ear during a slow dance. (haha ...baby i want you so much i just have to say ... ROME POSTAL SERVICE) and naw. your handwriting is perfectly legible.

oh. and. the ex did it. let's move on.

ha Rob yeah that WAS jonathan. thanks again for the postcard. very thoughtful. also. your request has been denied:)

Yesssss! the mighty south african goddess herself... Jissy!!!
omg she's such a beauty and such a laugh!!!!!
She is awesome... I could have laughed with her all night long!!!!
And her hubby is adorable!! Yeah don't let him have too much white wine or else you'll see him crossing the crazy roman streets, careless of traffic, shouting profanities!!
JK....
they are a great couple, and I think I've fallen for Jissy's charm!
Hopefully she'll be posting pics soon...
Me... I dunno when... that's another story!
LOL

ok sorry.... that was probabl best in my diary, not glory's!

Being the latest of the late, I also add a birthday hello. Birthdays should be a week long celebration (this coming from my June born wife). If you have celebrated only one day- you have 6 more coming. With each passing decade (and a number have passed) I find life more interesting and more satisfying. Now - off you go, celebrate the remaining 6 ...they expire in a year !

We must all arrange to meet in Zaknythos next summer.

Good luck Glory on your court date. Scary.

brooke stayed the night with her friend Mercedes ---she came home the next morning to giggle about the phone call they made together to the cutest boy in the 5th grade --Ford (another car name. people this KILLS me -- no offense to your own sweet Mercedes, lovely jallen)

this left ashley and i home alone with sara the dog ---who received far more attention than she wanted. i feel your pain, sara. i really do. haha

waxing poetic
i spent several hours going through some of my old journals and poetry collections. the following is an excerp:

A while back, I set my shoulder bag down inside the doorway of the local library bookstore, where I make time to volunteer, and it was stolen. Haha, you know? I bet that fellow opened up the bag and was pissed. All he had stolen was a bottle of water, a hair brush, a first aid kit, and The Analects of Confucius. Who knows? Maybe Confucius will end up changing that guy's life.

That bag was eventually found and returned. Empty, but returned all the same, so it's a happy ending after all. As for the missing the contents? I'll just let those things go... Confucius would want it that way.


i love myself. haha!

oh wow speaking of fishing ... have you seen those rods that shoot out the line like a gun? they are AWESOME! no more casting! just point and shoot! it's so much FUN
Dragonhide 11 years ago
Sara is precious! Hate to hear that you might need to give her away.. Or maybe that's a blessing in disguise? Dogs can be hard work for someone without time or space for them...

I'll have you know that Mercedes the car was named by the Inventor after his 10 year old daughter..... :)

Oh yes, Ian wants that "Rocket Fishing Rod" I think its called something like that? so badly...

they're only 20 bucks dad, puh-LEEEEEEEEEEASE?????!!!??? hahaha

well they are marketing them for kids but *i* want one too! if i fished i would absolutely get one. i don't fish but if i did there would be no shame in my game and if a seasoned fisherman dared to heckle me i would simply launch a hook into his eye

we celebrated my birthday at lunch. i drove home alone, the kids were to be driven back afterwards -- because my dad had things in his truckbed to haul down to my city and wanted to sing with the girls on the drive there. ain't he cute? he did that with me when i was little too.

he had them longer than he'd intended to because i got beaten up on this day. i spent the bulk of my afternoon and evening with the police and ER staff. lovely. happy fucking birthday to me. WEE

this was the last photo i took for a few days. it took me about a week to venture outside for fun. i only went when i had to drive or let the dog poop. the kids were getting antsy being cooped up in our little place, but i'll tell you something ... i could stand in front of my door with my hand on the knob and shake until my teeth ached from all the shaking. i was terrified. i'm still some kind of scared about going out with sara in the morning and evenings. it's such an issue that i don't know that we can keep her.

happy birthday to me 9-9
i spent saturday night NOT having phone sex even though i wanted to. my favorite fantasy was not available to me when i acutely desired to feel ... desired. ironic, yes? woe is me.

sunday the girls decorated the place with little signs. ashley wrote my favorite hannah montana lyrics down for me in purple marker. i love the minds of children-- handwritten lyrics is a really cool gift, in my book. brooke sang me songs -- she serenaded me with 8 songs. it lasted about as long as a standard concert, i'd guess -- she kept starting and stopping and resinging the same songs. i was strongly reminded of mother's day. haha

pardon
hi. okay. finally and at last i've gotten current with my diary entries to the best of my undisciplined ability.

i am feeling more like myself in most respects. i'm still more prone to the blues than is typical. my feelings are quite sensitive. the damnation of being reasonable is that a piece of myself can recognize the unreasonable piece of myself. for example.

heather said: are you sure you want to ...[insert boring work decision here]
i said: why do you hate me?

haha. see? SENSITIVE. i'm more than half-way embarrassed about my own suddenly reactionary nature. however. there's been some progress. whenever i get punched in the face and such ... i tend to fold up inside of myself. this time i shook it off faster than i have in the past -- due primarily to my assaulter's immediate arrest, i am sure. still though, i am proud of myself for shaking free so quickly -- this is light years quicker than any of the other times

i have new glasses, due to my other ones being smashed up. i've celebrated my full facial recovery by taking a handful of self portraits. mostly i just wanted to feel pretty and you know? for a whole hour i did. and that, to me, is good news. xo

p.s. this is my favorite, i think
drab chicken [deleted] 11 years ago

yesterday after work and school the girls, my cousin's son, and i went shopping. and. AND! they asked me to model for their magazine! HAHAHAHAHA!!! i am so excited! and flattered! if i do it i can choose one outfit to wear and keep plus score some cash and omg how cool is that.

i've withdrawn from everybody, casey. offline things have fallen to shit, although i can come up with a few cheerful things to say when the occasion calls for it. i still shake like someone with palsy when i have to take the dog outside before the sun is up. i jump at noises all the time. big men with shaved heads make me feel like running. the kids need constant physical affection and for the first time in maybe ever i find myself gritting my teeth when one or the other of them call for me in the middle of the night

court is set for sept 27. i hate court. i don't want to see mike again ever. if i didn't think it'd cost me my life i'd just fucking drop the charges so i could avoid the whole thing. but. you and i both know i cannot do that. it's just ... god. i hate being on DISPLAY. the pictures get passed around, my big fat file folder gets flipped through. people look at me.

the whole thing makes me feel like throwing up ---from the first bruise to the last step i take out of the courthouse. i am screaming inside of my head WHEN WILL THIS BE OVER

but. that's not the report i'd like lola to hear, exactly. i plan to call her again. if i called her now though i'd end up crying for the whole call. which. is sorta a downer, yeah? not that she couldn't handle it. she can! she has! i'm a champion crybaby on the phone with her -- i can be myself in all of my moods and know she'll love me anyway.

it's just ... i'd rather be more balanced when i call. i want to have SOME perspective. 'hi lola, being dead doesn't sound *all* that very bad today' seems like a crap thing to say, even though i FEEL that way. blah
