What of interest happened to you today?

So far, I've only waked up and had a couple of mugs of tea.

Jane, 60
West Linn
, OR    USA

I woke up and was able to get a hot shower for a long time.

Jason, 21

I was given a product to try out for free. This was a sort of homework assignment from my job. It was interesting to me, at least.

Fisch, 45

A work colleague left today before he really got to be a friend. It made me more melancholy than I would have thought.

Felicia, 35
, MA    USA

I'm going to see the new HANNIBAL movie tonite.

Stephanie, 25

Had a weird dream that made me wake up to find that I was drooling and didn't know where I was. That was unusual, so it was of interest. Got up later, looked at my flowers while I ate breakfast--don't usually have flowers, so that was of interest. Went to get crackers for lunch and found that I didn't have my wallet--also unusual, also of interest. . .ran around, found my wallet, bought crackers, went to class, walked some more, got very very very cold. . .brr!

A woman in my office, Susan Baker, got her Ph.D in Marine Mammals a few months ago and Tuesday she will go on a 6-month detail to NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency) which she hopes will lead to a full-time position. Today a bunch of us went to the Cheesecake Factory for a luncheon and to see her off.

Reba, 51

A guy at work that I thought would be a really cool friend told me that he wanted to take me out on a date. That was the only thing of real interest-everything else in my day sucked and that just helped to make it suck more.

Angela, 16
, SC   USA

Today I said good bye with a final fair well to a friend. It's awful saying good bye to anyone.

Jami, 27

Had two classes. The first one was field production and the cameras only faded to white instead of black. I found a cheat method to correct the problem using another feature. Attended a Kerouac festival commitee meeting which did not meet quorum. Also video taped a coffeehouse concert using the camera from the field production class. Since I don't have a car I couldn't take a tripod with me and did the shoot like we did on the show I was on (which is to say 'if you can't hold the camera perfectly still don't pretend to, move it around like an effect and abuse the hell out of the real in-camera efffects.) Also I was involved in a small debate over at the Zinesters e-group over the quip "Feminist humor...that's funny. Give my regards to the skinhead antidefamation league." Apparently people read way too much into it.

Alias Irrelevante

MasterCard asked me to document that I'd been unjustly billed twice for the same shipment. They want all the paper work for a watch that was never ordered--and never sent. As balance, I counted seven sprouting snowdrops, one snowdrop in bloom, a chickadee courting his lady love and a chipmunk investigating the spill from the bird feeders.

Jill, 60

Like last year I have filled out my taxes online using TurboTax Web. In fact Fidelity Investments is offering access to this software for free for any person (you don't have to be doing business w/ Fidelity) who wants to use this tool. Check out Fidelity Investments' website at http://www.fidelity.com if you are interested.

Of interest? Well, I cooked all day long. First I made onion rings and fries from scratch and then some bannock and about two dozen cinamin buns and some spegetti (no one liked). That's about it.

I do not know if it qualifies as interesting or not, so I'll just throw a lot of crap out, and see what sticks: I saw Silence of the Lambs today (I read the book months ago). Man, I am going to have nightmares about that for weeks to come. Disturbing is the only word that can describe that movie. Anthony Hopkins sure understands evil, and plays it well, too. me.

I felt the real need to relax this weekend.   Also, I did a lot of writing over the past twenty four hours. I wrote, and edited, several pages of the current "novel", although I do not like that term. The part I edited is something that critters critiqued, and I amfollowing their suggestion. Also, I got the idea for a new novel, and made the outline for it.

Also, I was reading "The Greek Achievement," Steinbeck's "Travels with Charley," "The Aeneid," and "Blood of the Fold." I had a blood test which seriously left me drained, I felt like I gave blood.

I think that is the only stuff that qualifies as interesting, but whatever.

I got the courage to talk to the cute new guy at co-op(it's like a student work placement).

Dianne, 16
Oshawa, Ontario   CANADA

Interesting... well funny maybe. My friend Jackie and I picked up pizza for our yearbook class, and we were walking through the halls with 4 pizzas, Coke, and breadsticks. A group of guys passed us and one of them said "Man, I could really go for some of that right about now." We both yelled, "Stop looking at my ass!" and cracked up.

Katie2, 18
, MI   USA

LOL FREAKING LOL. Well, funny you should ask that.  Today, my best friend in the entire world chose his g/f over me, gave me a hate letter, and i broke up with my girlfriend. It is what comes with good intentions. But, the ultimate sacrifice has been made..and in 80 years, he will thank me for it. Im too pissed off right now to explain more....

Adrianne, 15

Well, considering its 8am, lets see i woke up an hour ago!!  :)Yesterday my boyfriend surprised me with an expensive pair of earrings he can't really afford.

Talia, 23
, CT   USA

Ack, what a day to ask!! hehe.  I got a new job!!!! Yay = ) Maggie has landed herself solidly in the middle class. Hurrah!   *AND* I found myself a sweet little house to rent with my best friend. It has a huuuuggggeee yard for Ethan to run around in and a fireplace and hardwood floors and huge closets and two nice sized bathrooms. Can you tell I am in love with this place??

This is a great day.

Maggie, 20

I'm going to the NUJLS Conference (for Queer Jews) this afternoon.

Eric, 18
Beverly Hills

I purchased tickets to see Ani DeFranco.

Laura, 36
, MA    USA

I got to see my wasted buddy Mark take a trip to Woodstock with the film and a big bottle of wine. Nothing else today could compare to that.

A-Dog, 18

Hmm... I went to the school dance... that's pretty much it; my life is boring!

Jeremy, 13
Highlands Ranch

I bred a Golden Chocobo on the Playstation game Final Fantasy VII.  That  probably isn't very interesting to many people but I've been trying to do that for about 3 years. As you can probably tell, not much happened to me today...

Shanna, 15
Cardiff  ENGLAND

I got back from England at 3 am this morning, i was exhauasted!

Sarah S., 17

Discovered that my 140 dollar bicycle has been stolen. Good thing you said interesting. If you'd ask what joyous thing had happened I wouldn't have had an answer.

Firelady, 23

School was cancelled because of sonw and ice. (I'm a senior in high school.) There's been no school at all this week.
