Bah hah....a day late; a dollar short.  I actually missed my one year birthday for my journal which was Oct. 5th.  So, where is the love?  Actually, I would have liked to have stuck an obscene gesture in that bubble but restrained myself.

I would love to put this to rest but can't.  What is it about a tag in the sidebar which causes people to lash out at others?  And why lash out at those who had nothing to do with receiving those tags?  I guess hiding behind a SN; being faceless and nameless permits and encourages ugliness.  To say I'm appalled is an understatement.

I realize that rehashing this over and over does no good but every day the elephant is sitting in the livingroom, it seems, so what do I do?  Walk around it or give it a good whack? many of you know, I love nothing better than pulling out the old sledgehammer and whacking things.

Anyway, my hip was killing me all weekend.  I ended up taking Grizzly's leftover glucosamine and chondroitan since he is now on chewables from the vet's.  Seems to have done the trick somewhat.  Spent the whole weekend doing nothing but laying around and moving enough to keep the old hip from getting stiff.  Grizzly is back to his normal self again.  Now, I have to pull out the Oravet and clean those choppers of his.  I'm not thinking this is going to be an easy thing to do.

I did make it to Wally World today and refilled Mother Hubbard's cupboard.  I also bought a pair of Levi's cords a size bigger and a Levi's cord skirt and a couple of tops.  I also found a couple of pairs of cords in the basement which still fit; well, just fit.

The Halloween party was changed to last night again at the good old Days Inn.  I had already fallen asleep at 9:30 when my BF called which was just as well because I wouldn't be moving today at all if we had gone.  Last year, I was an honorary judge for the costume contest.  I almost got relived of my duties becauseI kept dancing instead of paying attention or something like that.  Grrr...that's my favorite night there, and I missed it this year.

I was cleaning out the junk mail yesterday.  I noticed a letter from DISH so I opened it.  It said I was denied my application for DISH because of bad credit.  So, I walked into the familyroom and sure enough I had my DISH receiver in there.  I called and got Embarq/Sprint who seemed puzzled.  They put me through to DISH who seemed even more puzzled and decided it must have been sent in error...ya think.  I'm glad I didn't get it last week or I would have been squawking with no words coming out.  The DISH did hold up to 50 mph wind gusts and a few icestorms blowing through yesterday.  It's not holding up so well to my messing with the remote.  Joey has forbidden me to do anything but change channels with it.

Time to go mess with my hair for an hour or so and hope it looks half decent tomorrow.  6 days and counting to get my hair done.

Have a good evening!!!!

i messed up my brother's tv and i tried to use the remote.  you shouldn't have to read a manual just to push a button on the remote.
take care and I hope the hip feels better.

Wanted to say hi, hope you have a good week.

have a good week:) love the last tag too cute:)

 I hear you have to take a college course to use the remote.  My son has a tv his dad and I have no idea how to use, lol.   I just heard about all the problems and meaness last week with the VIVI.  I was surprised and shocked.  Usually everyone always seems to get along so well, at least the journals I go too.  Sad things.


pennietoonz said...

Once again, I guess I am out of the loop with what all the fuss is about. Just as well!
You poor thing, take it easy. You`ll feel better when you get that hair cut. *)
Love ya, sweets-

siennastarr said...

Ahhh, yes...that damn big assed elephant in the room! lol  When you're done with that bat, just hand it on over!  I love whacking me some elephant too!! hee

Sorry about your hip, Chris.. :(  That sucks!  I can't believe you took your dogs medicine.  I'd be afraid to do that...   But, hey.. if it helped.. that's all that matters.

Love your graphic, but an obscene gesture in the middle would of made it perfect! ;)~

I am glad Grizzly is feeling better ~ LOL at you taking his left over meds hope they didn't make you "barking mad" ~ hope your hip is less painful and you have a good week ahead of you ~ Ally

jeadie05 said...

Sorry your hip has been hurting ,lol at taking grizzlys meds ,oo er !Congratulations on your journals Birthday,many happy returns,Give the elephant a kick from me,.,.,Jan xx

jlocorriere05 said...

I laughed at you taking Grizzly's meds! I know they work for us too but it just seems funny to take the dogs leftovers! Lol! Reminded me of Susan (RJet) who last year accidently took her cats flea tablets! I think the athritis is made worse by the cold weather, mine has got worse lately. I'm also appalled by the stuff going on in J-Land, people can be so infantile and nasty, I hope it stops once the Vivi's are over. I'm so glad Grizzly is better now, bless him. I haven't forgotten those CD tracks and will get them to you soon! Jeannette xx  

millieukgirl said...

Just dropping by to say hi and wish you a happy week ahead! Glad your Grizzy is well! We want that hip better, don't go kicking that elephant with the wrong foot! Millie x

Silly that people get jealous over the awards.  Hope your hip gets better.  


jeanno43 said...

Belated birthday wishes to your journal.  I hope your hip is feeling better. Lol at taking Grizzly's medicine, I do not think I would have been brave enough to do that.

lanurseprn said...

I hope your hip is better today.  I don't think I'd be brave enough to take Grizzly's meds...but I'm sure they work. LOL!
Glad Griz is doing better.
Funny about the dish....glad it's holding up to all kinds of weather, but you with the remote is another story LOL! That was funny.
Have a good Monday Chris.

Hi Chris thanks for visiting my blog... well nothing much happened in the pub I was, much too old people were there... sometimes a group of youngsters arrived with the usual outfit that makes you cry... nothing new under the sun... yes I don't understand this animosity with the vivis neither... and re: your comments with the photos, it is indeed easy for me to choose the right angle and make it as if I were the one you see on photo... but my camera is indeed very kind with me... I am much better on photo, but my photos only. When the others take me on photo, it's horrible :D Hope to see yours, even as Tootsy, it's funny

I can't believe the stuff that's being said and going on due to the awards.  Love your tag!  I'm glad grizzly is doing better and I hope your hip is doing better.  Hip problems I don't have yet.  Hope I don't get either.  Have a good day.

astoriasand said...

You should have carried on with the obscene remark,I would have like to read that one LOL!! I am so pleased to hear Grizzly is better and I hope the medication does you good too LOL!!.I enjoyed this entry.Take care

pharmolo said...

Pity the VIVI thing got spoiled by a few nameless individuals; but that's the underbelly of AOHell coming out on full form. Yuk. LOL, don't you know you shouldn't take veterinary meds meant for dogs :-D)) Keep smiling, happy Halloween - BOO!!!

princesssaurora said...

Oh no.. you too and the hips?  I hope yours stays feeling better too.  I am confused someone was nasty to you about something on the sidebar?  You need to email me... lol

be well,

ravenjuiced said...

I think you should put a caption under the "One year" thingy that claims, "I've been here a year, and that makes me better and smarter than you."


rainy35 said...

I thought I put you on alerts when I visited your trick or treat post but I guess I didn't.  Well, I am now.  Found my way back from Jackie.  Hope your hip feels better from Grizzly's meds.  LOL  I don't think I could take meds from the vet.

shermeen0621 said...

Sorry to hear that you weren't feeling good, though I do have to say i'm concerned about you sharing medications!!!

Happy 1 Year...feels good huh? esp when you look back and see how far you've come! Congrats!

I'm with you on the Elephant situation, i wish there was a way to evict these folk from jland. its sickening to find such pettiness and jealousy.

Hugs and Love
Shermeen xx

some say get tough and dont be naive about things but in my world, if you are a decent person you dont get treated like shit. Guess my world isnt the real world huh?
to be mocked for who i am has did something to me that i am not over. To be forced into going private after TWO AND A HALF YEARS as an active daily participant in J Land is kinda damn hurtful and i still can not believe this and now i trust almost NO ONE.

I wish someone would give me some answers.

i should delete the damn journal and walk away.

i wish i was with you if you had been at the Halloween and i would have had some fun.....and God knows we can all use more fun in life.
Thanks for being my friend Chris.
