11:00 pm October 14th, 2003
Subject: Good and bad
Okay, I've decided I'm starting a new habit. Hopefully this
will draw me out of my own head a bit and make me focus a
bit more on real life. First, things that made me upset with
in the last 24 hours:
1. That one of my friends continues to act in dangerous
ways. I know I said the other two of us were going to start
laughing and not take it so seriously but... I lied. Try as
we might neither of us can commit to that position.
2. Going through the JABB archives and really realizing how
few people post any more.
Things that made me feel good:
1. Going through the JABB archives and seeing how I no
longer have to deal with "If you love Jesus send this to 10
people" forwards, people who seemed to be exhibiting traits
of Manchausen by Proxy towards the show ("TBAA is getting
cancelled! I know it is!" every single week going back to
6th season...), virus warnings that were just stupid, and
people who seemed genetically programmed to break the few
2. That, thanks to a talk last night, my brother seems to
have some grasp on why it would not "make me a happier
person" if I left JABB. Granted, I sort of lied and said
JABB helped me deal with my "existential issues regarding my
own mortality" (yes, I just strung some big words together).
But I guess in some part of me that's probly true. You can't
have an on-again-off-again crush on an angel of death, even
a fictional one, for 6 years with out it somehow improving
your view of death.
3. That I don't have class tomorrow and can stay up as late
as I want!
I'm feeling: okay
Me in 2016:
Aww. I actually think my younger self is kinda
cute there. I want to hug her.
There are still few posts to the JABB YG but I can't say
it bothers me too much. I mean it'd be great if
that really got going again but I also get way more
personal email from members than I used to. So
that's really wonderful.
Sadly, things didn't pan out with my brother. In
an entry I cut because it went into too many other
family things, I seem to have had yet another verbal
brawl with him over TBAA/John Dye. I have no idea
what he thinks about either now. Don't really
care. We do much better and get along quite well
in two different houses with a couple miles between

need a new hobby...
Well, I think I've nearly run the course with this
Jesus-movie thing. I mean, of course, new stuff will always
pop up but it's to the point now where I've seen all but
like three that are readily available. (There are hundreds,
if not thousands, that are too small or hard to find and
hence don't count). I still want to see "Intolerance" cause
I haven't really touched on the silent movie genre. And, one
day, maybe I'll be able to watch "Last Temptation". Then
there's some other modern day version that I heard was
pretty bad quality-wise but those are my favorites. Not
necessarily for quality or truth but just to see what my
contemporaries are thinking. But other than that... It's
time for a new person/entity maybe.
So I'm thinking about:
1. Dracula- just cause there's a lot of content there and I
feel like I'm really missing the attraction there.
2. Death- obviously am very attached to Andrew. Thought
"Meet Joe Black" was fairly good and have always wanted to
see "Death Takes a Holiday."
3. Also considered just picking an era and going with that.
Like Victorian maybe.
4. Could pick a genre, like musicals. But not sure the whole
compare/contrast thing would be as fun when plots are so
I'm feeling: okay
Me in 2016:
That amused me reading that list as I'm still mourning the
Victorian-set monster mash that was Penny Dreadful.
I kept up with my usual, though. Hated stupid
Dracula in that, too. John Clare was the only
"monster" I found attractive. But that doesn't mean
I'm going to go hunt down versions of Frankenstein.
So what happened? I stuck with Jesus. Amazon
Prime is the gift that keeps on giving as far as getting
Jesus movies that I likely wouldn't have been able to get
otherwise. I *loved* Risen and was
pleasantly surprised by Killing Jesus so that's
I'm surprised it didn't occur to me to compare and
contrast angel movies. But there will never be
another Andrew so maybe that's for the best.
10:51 am October 16th, 2003
I'm pretty excited right now. I just lined things up so my
friend C--- can attend a play tonight with me. Usually I
love going to plays but this one is for a class and it's a
high school western type of thing. And I'm not western fan
and then to have it be high schoolers... Don't get me wrong.
I've seen some fantastic high school productions and some
bad professional ones. But this one's word of mouth isn't
that good. But as long as there's someone else to make fun
of it afterwards with me, it's all good. :-)
And I'm feeling so creative lately. Not that what I'm
creating is of great quality or anything. But I just
actually want to do creative stuff. Write stories, make
crafts, and even paint! Yes paint! I've avoided painting
since grade school and then just did a couple paintings over
the weekend. Two different versions of a scene from one of
my dreams. They're really bad technically speaking but just
the process was cool. And I do get something from looking at
them. They'll be filed away with my journals and stuff,
never to see the light of day but I saw them. I think
tomorrow I'm gonna work on another version and then move on.
And I made my headpiece for my costumes with out flipping
out and begging Mom for help. And it's actually pretty!
And JABB... the very idea that I almost pulled the plug on
it a month ago seems ridiculous now. I'm not saying it's
fantastic stuff but it's gotten much easier to write. Aud
and I finished the issue due tomorrow over a week ago. And
I've all ready started the Halloween issue and written a top
ten for the issue after that. And am brainstorming what to
do with the Christmas issue (we always parody holiday
classics and the trick now is finding something we've not
yet parodied after 5 years.) I don't think I've ever had
stuff done or started that far in advance. And, thankfully,
today is my last class before a 9 day fall break when I can
indulge all of this fully! But before then... must study.
One more midterm!
I'm feeling: creative
Me in 2016:
Ouch. I'd forgotten how much of a theatre snob I was
for a while. I barely remember that play but I don't
remember being appalled. The kids did good, I
think. It was just a goofy plot.
And I *completely* forgot
I had a painting phase. Darn it. Now I wonder
where those are...
Wow... It seems so long ago that Audrey was writing
JABB with me. Although I guess thirteen years is
quite a while ago. But it's kinda one of those "the
more things change, the more they stay the same"
things. I haven't thought of quitting JABB in a good
long time but I do often feel rushed and wish I had a
reserve so I could just pull material if the week's been
super busy. I guess I'm kinda doing that now but I
still write these 2016 bits within hours, if not minutes,
of hitting Send. Really need to get better about
that and not procrastinate. Weekends should be three
And wondering about what to do to not be repetitive after
five years? Cute, younger me. Try managing
that after eighteen years. At this point, I'm
worried I'm gonna repeat myself not out of desperation but
because I've simply forgotten that I already did
08:32 pm October 17th, 2003
Subject: Play, movies, and marital arrangements :-)
The play I saw last night at my brother's old high school
was okay. The acting was good, the costumes were really
impressive for a high school production, the set was pretty
cute, and the script was... insipid. But I can't expect to
have a major revelation every time I go the the theatre.
C---- went with me and basically came to the same
conclusion. We then came back to my house and watched
"Waiting for Guffman" and "A Mighty Wind." Yay Christopher
Guest and Co.! Then we had a really nice chat. I filled her
in on the reasoning behind the whole Andrew Renaissance. She
was shocked for a bit. But I think she understands now why
I've been really obsessive about that lately. Also, we've
both decided we no longer want to be humans but would like
to be angels. Or if we have to be human, she'd like to marry
the Metatron (aka Alan Rickman in "Dogma"). I can think of
someone I might be persuaded to marry... 0:-) But, alas, we
are human and they're not and even if they were they're not
real. (Okay, maybe the Metatron is but not in Rickman form.)
After she left, I just kinda tried to keep myself busy.
Talked to K---- on the phone, that was nice. Am very excited
to see the JABB story advance. I feel pretty bad for leaving
Andrew crying but I had class... Then I tried to nap but
that didn't work very well. Too noisy and people kept
calling or waking me up. Then I decorated a couple picture
frames. Started painting a couple of ceramic pumpkin
children I ordered. Oh! And my Alfred Hitchcock theme music
box for my spider came with the ceramics! Very happy about
that but in general... pretty restless.
I'm feeling: restless
Me in 2o16:
I miss Alan Rickman... Seriously. Sometimes
I'm really taken aback by how much some part of me still
refuses to accept that he's gone from this world. My
feelings made sense when John Dye died. I mean I was
running a web site with his face plastered all over it and
he portrayed my #1 crush. But Alan Rickman...
I think part of it was he just seemed like a force of
nature. I can remember when I first saw John
Dye. However, with Mr. Rickman, he just seemed to
have always existed and would always exist. And of
course he exists still. But not to be heard or seen
On a lighter note, I don't know if I wasn't yet hung up on
"angels neither marry nor are given in marriage" then or
it was just a late night, goofy conversation and I wasn't
gonna bring theology into it.
And I still love my ceramic spiders and pumpkin
children. Not even Andrew of TBAA could hate
them. They are adorable. So sayeth I!
Now I wanna know what story that was, though. Why
was Andrew crying!? Date-wise, I'd guess it was "The Reaper"
though I don't recall Andrew crying in that. Then
again, it's been ages since I read it and as established
above... my memory is pretty shaky re: what I've
02:26 am October 19th, 2003
Subject: Augh! This is just getting weird...
Okay, so it was funny when the Halloween tree fell to the
ground with a fantastic crash and ornaments fell everywhere
right as I finished a rant against Andrew. And it was
amusing when the blonde guy named Andrew in my speech class
gave an "I love computers" speech. And other stuff like
that. But now it's getting weird. Okay, so maybe it's only
weird cause it's after 2 in the morning and I'm a little out
of it. But here I am, watching "Holes" in an attempt to keep
myself from watching TBAA. And I'm enjoying it and suddenly,
during one of my favorite sappy romantic moments between
Katherine and Sam, who do I hear? The Angel of Music. Yep,
Keb Mo. I've seen this movie twice now and it only just
occurred to me that it was him. So now I'm distracted. Oh
well, back to the movie.
I'm feeling: weird
Me in 2016:
Ha, yeah. For a while I felt haunted by the ghosts
of TBAA past. That's an awesome moment in Holes,
though. I was kinda obsessed with Katherine and Sam
for a while. It's really a great movie for a TBAA
fan. Very much about how coincidences often aren't
and things happen for a reason and we're all connected.

Subject: Grrr... Update on the Infamous One's trial which
turned into me fussing over Andrew
Yeah, still looking for a good epithet. Tashlan the Vile was
a little too... eschatological. And I can't keep using
initials cause I don't want to ruin the letters S and B. You
know, just in case I become a big Sarah Brightman fan or
something. :-) Or dishonor the memory of Sony Bono. Not to
mention I have friends with those initials. Anyway...
Dead link removed
Well, at least that means the case hasn't been dropped. I
don't understand what the word "staged" means though. Makes
it sound like they were going off scripts or something.
Guess I need to watch COPS more. Or not... definitely not.
For the record, I am no longer mad about this because of
TBAA. I think had Zack come off incredibly well, it really
would have stolen the thunder from Andrew. And that could
have, conceivably, been very, very bad for me (and probly
others but can't speak for them). Not to mention, I've since
realized there was lots about those episodes that left me
unsatisfied, completely unrelated to the actors. Namely,
Andrew wasn't in the first part. Second, it made Monica look
more special than Andrew. I mean God didn't show up when
Andrew got his promotion! (And yes I realize I am completely
hyper-sensitive about this cause... well, I like Andrew!!)
Third, I would have been much happier with them all hopping
in the caddy and riding off into the sunset together. The
whole separation stuff is depressing. Fourth, I really don't
like that Joey ended up responsible even though it was in a
way that left him blameless. Fifth, Andrew wasn't in the
first part!!!!!!! Oh and also didn't like that Andrew seemed
to assume Zack was guilty. Then there was no scene between
him and Zack to make peace with that. Andrew's his kid, too!
Okay, will shut up now but first... Andrew wasn't in the
first part!! Oh wait one more. Okay, I don't need another TV
God. If I find one I like then, well, fine I guess. But I
have a real God. And if I'm desperate for a fictional
representation I have: Aslan, Joshua, other Joshua, Eli,
some guy named The Singer whose book I've yet to get to, the
Ragman, all the ones that have showed up in my dreams, Hero
(for when I need a faux-God that looks like a member of DC
Talk), and that's just the Christian ones. But, barring
fanfic which I'm picky about, there was no other version of
Monica, Tess, Andrew, or Gloria. I don't mean to bash the
writers, they were good episodes. And it was a good idea. It
just wasn't, in the end, what I needed. Or maybe it was.
Maybe I needed to be frustrated enough with it that it'd
send me flying back 5 years right to the heart of the Andrew
phase. If that's true, then all is well with it. But on a
purely story-level, even towards the end of the finale I'd
started to feel cheated. I didn't say anything cause, well,
it was the finale and I'd been all "Yay Zack!" the night
before. I didn't want to look *that* flighty. In the end,
when Zack disappeared I was just like "Huh, he's gone.
Okay." When Andrew did I just thought "NO!"
Anyhow, am continuing to read Rolheiser and thanks to him
know what I've been experiencing. Archetypal anger. Anger
for everything slimy and creepy and bad that's happened to
people. He explained it way better but am kinda sleepy and
don't wanna run upstairs and get the book.
I'm feeling: archetypal anger
Me in 2016:
So just to explain... after TBAA's finale the actor who
played Zack got into pretty ugly legal trouble. So I
went through a phase where I felt like he'd ruined a
perfect finale. Except the more I thought about
TBAA's finale, the less perfect it seemed to me for
reasons completely unrelated to Zack or the man who played
him. I think my younger self did a pretty good job
of laying out my problems with the conclusion. One
thing I will add is that I eventually realized that the
sub par (for me) ending is why JABB's gone on for so
long. If I'd felt satisfied, I would have stopped
writing eventually. But now I'm forever hunting for
a perfect ending.
It took me a bit to figure out who "other Joshua"
is. The first Joshua I referenced was Fr.
Girzone's. The second was Christopher Moore's from
the hilarious and touching Lamb. I did
eventually read The Singer books and enjoyed
them. And then, eventually, I got into the game
myself... so there was another Joshua!
And my Joshua knows that Andrew is his kid...
1:29 am October 20th, 2003
Subject: Strange ways things occur to me...
So I've been thinking about how, after TBAA left the air,
suddenly all Andrew-related creativity and really a lot of
creativity in general came back to me. It's almost as if
having the character physically present in a way (visually
on the TV) limited him and his effects. And something in
that reminded me of something a teacher, I can't even
remember who now, said about the disciples post-Res.
Something about how Jesus had to leave them in order to get
them to do stuff. Like if he'd just stayed down here, we'd
all just sit around and not do anything, just wait for him
to fix it all.
I didn't entirely buy it. I mean if he'd stayed down here it
woulda been a lot easier for people to buy into the whole
philosophy and theology and all. Not to mention the fact
that we're physical beings at this point. I don't care how
close Peter or Mary Magdalene or whomever felt to Jesus when
they prayed to him for guidance. It must have been a lot
easier when they could just go to the house where he was
currently at/the bit of earth he'd decided to make a home
out of that night and say "Hey, can I run something by you?"
But then would they have ever grown up? Would they have ever
felt a deserved sense of pride in anything? Would they have
ever risked anything? Would they have formed communities? Or
would they have just said "Well, things are good with me and
Jesus, who cares about the others?"
Yeah, so I understand now that he had to leave. Have
understood it for a while, just never took the time to
articulate it. But still... I bet some nights they wished he
hadn't. They realized he had never really left but there's
something to be said for physical connection.
I'm feeling: contemplative
Me in 2016:
That actually sounds like something I'd write now. I
sometimes contemplate how to balance Joshua in the
stories. Because I don't want the other characters
to cease developing or rely on him in a way other than the
sort of reliance we should all have on God.
I don't think it's accurate that everyone would just stop
doing anything if Jesus was physically around. But I
can see how His presence might throw up some
barriers. Would couples ever really learn how to
compromise or discuss differences of opinion if they could
just be like "I give up! Let's go ask Jesus and see
what He says." I've tried to incorporate that sort
of idea into the Dyeland stories by having Joshua just
refuse to answer certain things or redirect someone to the
person they should actually be speaking to. But just
the fact that I have to make a conscious effort to do that
probably shows that it would maybe be a problem.
Still... hugs are nice. I can't imagine the early
Christians not being sad about the loss of those.
For the angels, both in TBAA and the Dyeland stories, I
imagine there's an element of that, too. It's great
to be on earth and among friends... but there must be a
pain, however subtle, in being separated from God.
The question remains open when and if Joshua will have his
equivalent to the Ascension.
1:39 am October 22nd, 2003
Subject: "She hath no loyal knight and true"
I keep thinking about how in the course of a few short
months the once-similar lives of myself and one of my
friends have become completely different. On her big (and
IMO extremely ill-advised) night with her boyfriend, I was
dreaming about Andrew (the infamous half the pictures
falling off The Door one). When she found out he had a kid
and had been with 10 other girls, I was giggling over Andrew
in a spacesuit. And when she started to think she may have
caught something very bad from this boyfriend (no word yet
on what she's found out), I was picking out a cloak and a
princess dress and buying Aragorn a purple wig. I'm not
saying what was right and what was wrong. I think she's
grown up too fast and I've... not grown up. At least not in
a lot of ways. And I feel kinda sad about that. Maybe I
should be more adventurous. Meet new people. Still be
responsible but less shy.
Certainly it's what my parents want. My Dad at least. I'm
just waiting for the day I get home early and find Dad
attempting to marry me off...
But at the same time... once you leave it doesn't seem like
you can come back. At least not in the same way.
These last few years I've seriously begun to consider the
possibility I may never find the right guy. And I know that
may sound premature. And I'm not ruling anything out. I'm
just being realistic. And truthful. The fact is, I like
sleeping alone. I like having lots of alone time. I like
that I can tape a bunch of pictures of Andrew to a door or
fill the wall above my bed with books about Jesus or put
glitter on my walls just because...
But I believe there are good guys. And, despite the fact
that they may not be a part of my life, I need to know
they're there. I guess I thought when my friends started
dating, I'd have that. I don't need my own knight, but just
to know there are "loyal and true" ones would be nice. And I
guess that's partly why this alleged boyfriend bugs me so
much. I don't even wanna use the word "boyfriend" because it
has the word friend in it and from the sounds of it he's
been less than friendly.
I've considered the possibility that maybe I'm just jealous.
But I can't see how I am when I honestly do not want a
boyfriend (especially that particular one!). Oh sure every
so often I think it would be cool but it passes. I mean just
look at the people I have crushed on. I don't even want a
fake boyfriend! If I did I'd pick someone a heck of a lot
less celibate than Andrew to get sappy about! And even the
"normal" guys are interesting. I mean I can't really imagine
being with Mr. Darcy cause then he wouldn't be with Lizzie
and that would just be... well, awful. And the same with
Mark Darcy. If he doesn't end up with Bridget then... well,
I don't know. But I won't be happy. And the Dr. Cox thing?
As cute as I sometimes think he is, I actually had a dream
once in which his wife left him and *I* was running after
the car screaming "Come back! You have to be with him! It's
meant to be!!" I suppose a lot of people just day dream
about being Lizzie. But I wanna be me.
Of course, there is Christian Bale but that whole thing, as
much as I like it, has basically turned into MST3K where we
spend most of the time laughing and making fun of his
movies. Plus, he kinda bores me when I see him on interviews
and his characters are great all together when you take bits
and pieces of each. But to pick just one and say "Yes! He's
my ideal man!" Impossible. I mean even Jesus came out kinda
lackluster. You just wanted to break into the screen and go
"Oh my You! Listen up, you've only got one more year down
here so you best enjoy it. So just freaking smile for once
in your life, man! Oh and try not to make your hair look
that styled. If you could. Please. It looks goofy." But I
I said earlier I was part of a dying breed of people that
gave a care about Andrew. Now I'm just wondering if I'm part
of a dying breed that actually cares about sweetness and
romance and not rushing into things and... innocence?
I'm feeling: contemplative
Me in 2016:
WHAT?! Holy cow. I do NOT remember my Dad
being more eager for me to get married than my Mom.
Wow... I've been thinking my Dad was always fairly
over-protective and kinda anti-boy but... wow. Now
I'm wondering what happened... I suppose it's
possible he just wanted more of his house back. So
he has that now. And I have my own without needing a
Some things never change... Thirteen years later and
I'm still obsessed with fake Jesus' hair.
Anyway, in all seriousness, this is basically still how I
feel about romantic relationships. I don't need
one. But every time one I think is true falls
apart... kinda feels like some part of me dies.
Also, it's kinda weird how there seem to be more Andrew
fans now than in the immediate wake of TBAA's
cancellation. I'm glad about it, of course.
Just wonder why. The resurgence started prior to
John Dye's passing so I don't think that alone is

Subject: My boys
So... K---- emailed last night and told me to call ASAP, it
was rather urgent she speak to me. Turns out our other
friend has found herself in even more trouble in regards to
her boyfriend now... Of course, before Kristen told me I had
to get to my doors.
Since everything started to unravel a bit last month, I've
started taking all bad news by my doors. There's the actual
door to my room which has a poster of Jesus on the outside
with his I AM quotes on it. On the inside is my crucifix,
some sconces, some butterfly things, a Lion of Judah (yay
Aslan) poster and this other poster of this little girl
swinging with God's hand holding the swing. I like it cause
I used to love to swing and the girl looks kinda like me.
The next to it is my closet door. Inside of that door is
just hooks with my sweaters on them. But the outside is
It just seems like a very visual way to add perspective to
things via Jesus' door and keep me from getting completely
anti-men via Andrew's door. Cause he's cute and all...
K---- got a kick out of me when I just nonchalantly said
"Thank you, boys" after discovering I'd heard the entire
horror story with out flipping. At least one of them
heard... :-) And it's kinda funny to refer to basically
ageless people (or non-people as the case may be) as "boys".
So if anyone ever calls me with bad news, just be sure to
ask if I'm by my doors. :-) I think I'm going to dub myself

2. Prior to like this year, was there ever a time when
Andrew and I were responding to each other and *not*

I just love the ossuary boxes of the Holy and Famous line.

being a vial of white glitter I'd put on a shelf above my
desk, fell onto the desk and spilled. I then tried to clean
it up but then it only flew every where! Sigh... It's pretty
but... I look... goofy.
I'm feeling: amused
Me in 2016:
Nowadays, maybe I woulda been mistaken for a Twilight-esque
shiny vampire. :-)
And there, covered in glitter, I leave my younger self for
now. When we return to this, hopefully she'll be
just as goofy, quirky, and AOD-obsessed.
