November 7, 1996
Hey all!! This is grrlPOWrr's second day online, and Rose and I are really syked (sp?)! Anyway, there is like a TON of stuff to do! Like a grrlPOWrr chat (look below to go there), and really cool links (look below to go there). And that's just the half of it! You will just have to surf around these pages for a while to find everything.

Anyway, I have a cold right now, which really sucks considering I am probably gonna miss out seeing "Romeo and Juliet" with Claire Daines and, *sigh* Leonardo DiCaprio, and I was gonna see it with 2 of my best buds (one of which is an editor on these pages). Oh well, I will just haveta wait and see it another time.......That's it for today (for me at least)....

Hi again! Guess what?? Rose and Jenn are seeing Romeo and Juliet this very second, and I am still sitting here sick...and Rach is in New York seeing Romeo and Juliet with her hunny. So, instead of watching that...I am sitting here writing into this journal and watching the Sally Jessie Rafael show! This girl a grade under me was in it.....that was random! ughhhhhhh If I watch anymore TV I think I will burst...but what can u do when u r sick...thats right; Nothing. Well, I am gonna go now, I will probably end up writing more later *smile*.
Oh ya! Now, when you see the line below...
You can click on it to go back to the main page! That should make it a little more organized.

Well, I thought I would be back....2 reasons why: The line looked bad so close together without this little peice of info...and TV is out! Wait...no, it isn't. Now I am watching Leeza, they are talking about disturded Teens...thats a laugh!! I thought all teens were disturbed..... Oops, sorry, nope, the show is about gangs, and it is really depressing, channel change! Ok, now I am watching an animal show...this is cool (I like animals :) )but it is on reptiles...i DON'T like reptiles....Ok, now that I have written enough to make it look organized again..I am gona run (Rose is gonna write in this soon...right Rose?)

Woosh!! Just got back from San Diego like 20 minutes ago, and came back to my puter which had about 20 e-mails waiting for me!! The one that made my day was from the editors/writers at Riotgrrl.com! I was really pleased to see a letter from them, I mean, they must be really busy, and for them to take time to write an individual letter to me was an honor! Hmm, back to San Diego: It was fun, and it was hot, to hot. I took a train down there which was cool, cept sitting and doing nothing for 3 hours just isn't my thing. Lets see, what else is there to say.....oh ya: ROSEEEEEE!! WRITE IN THIS DAMN THING!!! lets see, oh ya! My cold is gone...YIPPY! Which means I might just get to see Romeo and Juliet tomorrow...PLEEEEEEEZZZZ! Also, in the zine, when it says the article names:

CLICK ON THEM! Lol....they r image links! We are working on the Women who Rock and the Issues sections...they aren't up and running yet though...sorry bout that! Ok..I have talked enough!!!!

Hi again computerized journal...... As boredom and homework sweep me into a dark cloud it seems as if I won't ever get out of it. Especially with quarter grades in the mail, which means my nerves are jittery... Rose has the idea of writing a Rants and Raves section in this thing...what do u think?? Oh, BTW, Riotgrrl's ish 6 is out and it is really cool, some articles aren't up yet but they will be by 2morrow. My dumb-ass mail server is down and I can't get my long awaited e-mails. E-mail is my link to the world, other places and people whom I only know from their writings. I want my e-mail, NOW. Oh well, I guess it will just haveta wait. It is almost 11:00 pm, (10:55 really) and i am not tired at all, that is why of course that I write in this thing. Nothing bad nor good happened today, it was boring, plain and simply put. I am going to leave the world of HTML and puters for about 7 hours now, one does need rest these days.

Hi all!!! Grades came in 2day.....yippy (I think). My grades weren't all THAT bad.....lowest was a C+, that isn't that bad. Rose did well, and so did Rach. Jenn got the best outta us: No less than an A-!!!! That is soo amazing! Hey: Anyone here know of the NEW AOL plan?? 19.95 a month...unlimited access 2!! I used to be on AOL, but I left cause it was such a ripoff, but now I am thinking of joining again!!! Any of u guys have any ideas of a screename I could use for AOL? I will need one! Hmmmmmm......This isn't much of an entry..... And I am running outta things to write.....nothing happened today really.. Oh ya!! There did: the highlite of my day was seeing this tiny little mouse...a baby one, it was brown too, and the cutest damn thing I have ever seen!!! It ran into my shoe, poor thing probably bonked its head to hard . But it was so adorable, just thought I would share that with u.

WOOSH!! I have been SOOOO damn busy the past few days I ahvent had time to write in here!! I miss not writing in this thing believe it or not! But life has been so good to me the past few days ::knocking on wood::!! Rose and I were BOTH in the newspaper for an interview we did on Romeo and Juliet!!!! She started it and I ended it!! How COOL is that? Then, to top it off, i finally finished my article that I was writing for RiotGrrl!!


And then when I found out that Nikki (a way cool RiotGrrl) liked it, i was sOOOO syked (sp?)!!! So be sure to check out my article in the next ish which is comin out on Nov. 30th! Ohhh weird story for ya:
Ok, get this, I am at THE dullest party (its an art show for my dad's friend) and all it is is a bunch of adults schmoozing.......DULLLLLLL!!! Well, I am sitting deep into my thoughts when this old guy comes up to me (SCARY!)... and he's like: "Do you have a spiral notebook in your pocket?" And I'm like...what the hell???? So, in my strongest voice I say: "No." And then he is like"Well, if you had one, then you wouldn't be quite as bored! Because you could write down all your thoughts!" This wasn't such a bad idea, but the way he said it was FREAKY! And then, he just got up and walked away!!! LOL! N-e-wayz, that day I went out and bought a spiral notebook, and it does stay in my pocket!!
Well, thats it for 2day!!!!

November 18, 1996

Well, here I am, in the library of our school…..This is my first journal entry…CAITLIN has been nagging me for like 2 weeks now to write in this damn thing so I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Rose and I go to the same school as Caitlin. She is one of my best buds….being the vehement feminist am , I constantly was lecturing mi amigos about feminist issues. I guess my ranting and raving finally drilled in because one day Caitlin said to me, LETS MAKE A WEBPAGE DEDICATED TO GRRLS!!!!! So, here we are, combining Caitlin’s html powers with my creative?!???!? powers…..OK NOW THAT I’VE THOUROGHLY BORED U………THESE ARE MY FAVORITE WORDS/PHRASES : Genius, MONSTRO TIME, Monster Butt (not to be confused with monstro time!!!), YOUVE BEEN ERASED, and Caitlin and I’s new theme song, I AINT A DOG, WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF, I AINT A DOG, WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF……..OK this is my favorite quote: The world was not given to us by our parents, it was loaned to us by our children……THAT QUOTE ROX!!!! Well, that’s all for now…I’ll write more later..that is if I can get our act together!!!!!
Love,
Rose (queen of the jungle) (spoonacorn #2)

November 18, 1996

Hey alL! ROSE FINALLY WROTE IN HERE! Yippy! Its a miracle!! I started keeping my little notebook today....it roxx!! Every grrl should get one! They keep you occupied in the dullest of dull classes, u can write anything in them, and it is totally yours, no one elses. It is your private thoughts, feelings, promises, wishes. I ahve already written 4 pages in it, and such a relief has come over me, I feel 10 times better. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR! GET ONE! Gotta run, we are gonna add a Comic section to the zine.....so i haveta find some comics to put in there!!!!

Novemeber 20, 1996

Hi again!!! I think my bad days are over...YAY! So no more depresing entries (even though their were none) in here. I am sitting in the library at my school, its cool, technology and stuff! I mean, where else can you alter your own webpage away from home?? A lot of places...but that isn't the point...I spent the bulk of my free time in school today looking at pictures of my love...Leonardo DiCaprio.... The bus leaves in 10 minutes, wow. Time to kill.... Hey, have you ever looked at brothers and sisters of people that you know?? They are either totally differne,t or exactly the same...well, Pluto's little bro is sittin next to me (he is in 6th grade) and he has to be one of the weirdest kids I have ever seen in my entire life....Oh well, I guess you could catoragize this as blabbering.......Oh well, random thoughts and ?'s, thats just me 4 ya! Rose is typing up another journal entry on a seperate puter here in the library.....I haveta send it to myself in a sec so I can record it in here!!!! Well, the comic section is TOTALLY complete! I think that the bad language in it is alittle to abundant, but who cares?? Oh well, hope you enjoy it!

November 20

Ugh! I hate B days!!! At our school, there is a three day schedule, A, then C then B and it rotates…..B days are the only days where I don’t have any free periods, thus, I have no time to myself!!!!!! Today at lunch I had bag check for the EOE (educational outdoor education) I am going on….I AM REALLY EXCITED!!!!!!!! What really sucks is that I am missing 2 days of school (no, that DOESNT suck) but I am missing like 5 tests that I have to make up in a period of 2!!!! Days…..I am REALLY stressed out right now….I am sooo sore from yesterdays b-ball practice……well, I have to go change now, ill try to write ore later………

November 21, 1996

Just got back from B'ball practice....it is a really tuff (tough) workout!! We run a helluva lot, and then shoot and stuff (drills 2). I play postion #3. Which means I am a guard, a wing (which basically IS a guard) AND a forward. Thats cool, I like it. Switching around positions is a lot of fun. See, I wouldn't consider myself tall at ALL, but since our team is realtivley short, that is why they need my at the forward position. And guard has just always been my position since 7th grade (thats when I started playing). Rose and I and Rach all play JV (junior varsity) and Jenn is point guard/guard for the Varsity team! She is Ms. Basketball! Well, I gotta run, i have 3 tests to study 4...yippy, this oughta be a hoot.
