curious-me's Diaryland Diary


My 1st ever survey - I'm such a trendsetter - ha!

Itís been a long day but itís gone by pretty fast so who am I to complain? I had lunch with my sweetie which was totally cool for me. But as usual, when something is great for me it means that itís bad for him! He had insomnia and couldnít sleep. So he emailed me around 11, I called him just before 12 and voila we had a lunch date. Although not so good for him heís having some pay problems. Worst time of year too. Luckily itís not as bad as Tís guy Ė his boss owes him something like 10,000. Thatís insane.

I joined a diaryring Ė did I mention that? I was just flipping through one day looking for new journals to read and saw something about diaryrings. I joined the Canadian one. Why? Because itís Canadian! But so far I havenít found any good ones to read. I canít really relate with teenagers and the angst they are going through. Been there, did that. Do not want to go back! But Iíll keep looking.
