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.

Hi Evraybody. How was your weekend? Mine was soooo busy but I did get a lot done and had fun too. Most of the weekend was spent moving my ma from temp to permanent digs in the assisted living place. The less said about that the better. It's ongoing. Saturday night I went to a party at a coolio art gallery owned by an alum of the same high school that I went to, in an international (mostly American) school in Asia. There was a reunion that I enjoyed because (a) I only actually knew two people, the rest being slightly younger than me, so I didn't mind seeing them, and (b) the experiences we shared as "third culture kids" cannot be shared with people who are not such. Plus we all had a blast in our high school, myself included, though I hated much of it and have blocked most of it out. Plus the eats -- dim sum from Oakland's Chinatown -- were fantastic, so was the art, and we all looked great!

I heard through the grapevine, and I don't think she'd mind my repeating it, that our pal crose's knee surgery went well, that she might be home from the rehab place even as we type, and she's getting help with chores and doggie care. Yay! Get well soon, crose, and get back online ASAP -- we miss you! (like she can read this, oh well.)

On to the craigyferg. Tonight in a re-run from Sep. 3, he has on Jay Leno and comedienne Cameron Esposito. Do you think he'll tell a joke stolen from Jay Leno? Here's what you might have missed last Friday:

Also you might have missed fellow venthooligan's screamingly disgusting funny Animal Nuz 170. I was so busy I didn't see it til this morning and I'm still smiling! and retching! Thank you ericle!
