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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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:

We're all winners tonight, no matter what. Everyone gets a wealth of quietly bitter loathing for the person who does win the lottery.

I wouldn't mind golden parachutes for execs so much if the rest of us weren't standing around holding lead balloons.

Now that I'm employed once again I've realized that being unemployed & poor is much better than being poor & working 40 hours a week.

Don't worry if your world seems bleak and hopeless now, it'll get much worse when you're rattling around a poorly funded nursing home alone.

Intro

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).

Garry Oldman could be anywhere around you at anytime. Act accordingly.

Camels figured out how to store water in a tumor. They're the Martha Stewart of the animal kingdom.

I'd find it much easier to go to work if I could slide right down into my car from a firepole.

I have finally reached the age where I no longer care to be informed as to the degree to which anything is "for shizzle."

Who would have thought the half man was even crazier than Charlie Sheen?
