Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

~ This is an old blog, not something from my recent writing. However, I still like it ~

A gentle tingle sweeps through the body. This isn’t like cannabis where it sort of pours over you like warm honey. This creeps over you like a spider crawling across your body. Then it’s just BAM! right there wrapped through you like a large ghostly hand…there but not really there. The racing of your heart causes a mild panic the whole thing feels intense but you just KNOW that had you been in the proper situation right then it could be freaking fantastic…well, dumbass, why didn’t you get ready for that first. It’s not like YOU didn’t do this to yourself with knowledge AND forethought…well almost the latter anyway. So, don’t you bother trying to focus on anything really productive, because even though you probably have tunnel vision right now you lack the ability to focus on anything within that tunnel.

Let your head work through feeling thick like oatmeal and when you can skip again you are ready to get on with your day. If it becomes too…interactive for you just know that it’s acceptable to lay back and let it play through. It’s not going to be full length movie, so you won’t have to wait more than a quarter hour to return back to your own universe again.

(( personal note: If you feel the need to watch a music video or something to help you retain your bearings I suggest you do NOT watch Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” unless “creepy” is a feeling you are comfortable with.))

There you sit now, sort of like a gentle “hum”….feeling somewhat like you were on the edge of SOMETHING…but you aren’t sure what it was, or whether or not you like it…so you try it again…
