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:

Welcome to Sunday All Day Brunch. This is an open topic thread so help yourself to the goodies and sit a spell and let us know what is new with you. My little black cat Pixie loves to help me. Now the dictionary defines help as giving assistance. I’m not sure Pixie quite has that concept down. Her idea of help and my idea of help don’t exactly mesh.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

On Saturday I do the laundry. I start by changing the sheets on the bed. For some reason Pixie thinks helping with the bed is to “artistically” rearrange the sheet that I had just got pulled up and straightened either that or to sit right where I am trying to pull up the blanket.

I have been trying to knit a scarf to give as a gift. Pixie has been helping me which is the main reason that I am unknitting as much as I am knitting. She helps by pulling the needle out of my hands which of course makes the yarn fall off.

Pixie also likes to help with the litter box. I scoop it every morning and sweep up the litter from the floor. She will immediately go even if she has to squeeze out a couple of drops and scatter more litter on the floor.

Pixie is the most “help” when I am trying to wrap packages. You can always tell my packages at Christmas. They are the ones with kitty teeth marks on the ribbon.

We can't forget her help in making jewelry. She tugs at the string, bats the beads, takes off with bead I need at the moment, and generally is a nuisance.

Of course when you are as cute as she is you get away with “helping.”
