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 morning started out beautifully, 68 degrees with a few clouds in the sky perfect for anyone working outside. I stirred early around 5 or so to do my morning constitution and looked forward to my two guilty pleasures coffee and the "helpdesk".. I've always loved coffee Mama started me young. I really don't like the high end stuff I just want the caffeine. It really is hard to explain my dismay that after pouring my cup there was nothing for me to read, depressed isn't the word. I knew I had to leave shortly so I checked my mail and responded too a few but being the junkie I am I kept returning for my fix. Obviously I had to leave and go sweat in the sun which brought it to 91 not counting the heat index but I could never really concentrate because my mind was elsewhere. I needed to know what was going on.



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).

So as not to be viewed as someone with the inability to use a mobile I need to explain that it's frowned upon and not everybody sits behind a desk with instant access.

I was really in worrying mode this evening when I was headed home and my phone rang, because I just needed to find out if I had made the list. You really can't imagine the joy when I was informed I made the top 5. Hell LSU is only ranked #6.

So yeah I'm like Fred Astaire.

Funny as all get out is the fact Reggid made the "sneck" twice.

Imagine that!

I'll post this for those interested in whether or not they "made the list"
