  2. punk it’s funny actually. it was a hand me down outfit that i wore when i was 5 or something and i’m still traumatised. picture knotted macrame looking terrible thick green polyester yarn made into a dress or something!

    you know someone told me once that my blog was strangely honest, and maybe it is… but what’s the point if it’s not?

    you’re welcome!

  4. I’m curious about the crystal meth. Isn’t that totally addictive?

    Maybe I shouldn’t have asked.

  5. punk: fair enough… i don’t spill it all either… my basic limit is basically if they know about my blog or not… :)

    but yeah, i’ve decided in life that it’s good to spill things.

    jenn: yes, yes it is… and i slept 16-20 hours/day in the two weeks after i quit.

    speed sucks but it’s fun

  8. dzer: thanks dude.

    i love these tags, i learn about everyone and myself at the same time. i think i should have added french fries to the snacks though :)

    punk: heh.

    my favourite combo is crystal with pot and beer. it’s like the best high ever. it’s why i will never go near that stuff again :) [er the crystal that is]

    i can’t shut up about my blog… so i use nicks and i change details a little if need be…

  9. I have a picture that the folks took when I was young, I was naked on a changing table with the hideous hat on my head. I think it was green with xmas ornaments on it. I’ll never forgive mom for that, even though I was like 1 at the time. :P I did have a cute butt then though. :D

  12. cast: you know you have to post it now right? i mean i posted cranky baby face pic….

    i haven’t seen your new butt and thus cannot comment on it’s cute factor

    bubbles: it doesn’t surprise me that you have a similar history… we’re not that different and that tends to come from a similar life story.

    and yes, i fucking love my car too!

    i don’t know why you feel obliged to answer my mail when i do polls but i’ll be glad to read it!

    punk: i can’t email you, well i can but it will be after the 60 or so i’m due to answer…

    so when are you going to cop to whatever is in your history?

  14. punk it sounds like whatever happened to you had a much more wounding and lasting effect than my experience.

    i was lucky, i caught myself on the way down instead of at the bottom

    i’m slowly finding the deep places in myself but they are well hidden and hard to plumb.

    Comment by sassinak — November 22, 2005 @ 3:34 pm | Reply

  15. all of my own doing hun… and undoing…

    its not a bad thing to know where the bottom is and how to avoid it… besides 5+ years of therapy

  16. right back atcha!

    i could stand five years of therapy myself but i can’t find a therapist that’s smarter than i am

    sort of a problem!

  17. LMAO … well i happened upon one back in 90 or so.. she is still on my cell phone today.. love her really.. she saves lives with words … and i may have some of the knowledge she did.. but i didnt know how to utilize it…

  18. you’re a lucky lady then punk. i’ve met a lot of great therapists but none who could keep up with my brain. my sis found one in ottawa which helps me not at all in TORONTO!

    saves lives with words… what a wonderful thing to have said about yourself!
