from aberrations :
Hey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you still writing you book? mac
from aberrations :
Wishing you an early Happy Friday! :)
from aberrations :
Hi! The snow is melting and Jeff turned 50!!! :)
from aberrations :
I also went to Kroger.
from aberrations :
That sounds so romantic!!!! Europe. I went to New York. :)
from cocoabean :
It's easy to be in denial when dealing with aging parents. That's why, above all, it's best to listen to what the doctor and nursing staff say. Hang in there....
from chaosdaily :
That's what I like about you, doc, you have a heart.
from aberrations :
Why are we not seeing an essay about European money?
from aberrations :
There is nothing harder than the game that evolves around weddings.
from chaosdaily :
she invited you, so that gives you permission to go.... if it was me, i would just show up for a couple minutes at the reception, hand her a gift, and leave...
from chaosdaily :
ok, if you arent going, at least give her a thoughtful gift
from aberrations :
We are working on the fence today. SO WISH YOU WERE HERE! Hugs, Chel
from aberrations :
Dan, I really really like that story. Chel
from aberrations :
that's strange. great entry, but the choice of the song is strange. from the outside, you look very happy.
from aberrations :
Hi! I wanted to make sure you knew that James Blunt's new CD dropped yesterday! It's awesome. A must have for your collection, I'm sure. Hugs, Chel
from aberrations :
Good Friday to You!
from aberrations :
I'm back! I've been to Washington, DC, Norfolk, VA, Raleigh, NC, Ashville, NC and Knoxville, TN. We added an additional Clay concert to our list. We ran into Clay at the Ashville concert and talked to him for a second or two. We decided to go to Knoxville and ended up staying in his hotel - The Hilton. It was a nice surprise. Kelly got me a blue tooth for my birthday. I have used it a couple of times, but I agree with you that it's like talking to yourself. Talk to you soon. Love, Chel
from chaosdaily :
yeah i talk to myself, and just pretend to have an earpiece on hahah
from aberrations :
our cat died.
from aberrations :
Hi Dan!
from chaosdaily :
just think of the part you had in her growing up!
from aberrations :
Hi! Insightful. I am sure you are not the only adult to ask such a question. I remember I really wanted to be someone with a cool childhood, now I just want to be me. Love, Chel
from aberrations :
Less working, more writing! Love, Chel.
from aberrations :
He will do fine, because he is your son. Hugs, Chel.
from aberrations :
I really like this story. Chel
from chaosdaily :
glad to see you back!
from aberrations :
I am on Vay-Kay-Shun!
from aberrations :
Did you run away from home. From life?
from aberrations :
Do you not like me no more? Chel
from aberrations :
Happy Week!
from aberrations :
Hi!
from aberrations :
Happy New Year's!
from chaosdaily :
"tumor" is another one that strikes fear into people... but a tumor is not necessarily carcinoma or malignant. sometimes its hard to know what to say...
from chaosdaily :
you could work as a carpenter.....
from chaosdaily :
thanks for your last note. the leg is coming along fine...
from chaosdaily :
it also isnt a good time of year for circulatory problems....
from chaosdaily :
pogo is a game site.. pogo.com. you can play for free, but if you pay ($30 a year) you get a lot more games, and a chance to win money. i dont play for the money, but there are a lot of fun games, and fun people to chat with while you are playing. less boring than plain old chat rooms!!
from chaosdaily :
wow that sounds like a lot of fun!!!
from aberrations :
Hmmmm . . . and you are too tired to only write once in a while?
from chaosdaily :
sounds like you need a vacation, doc!
from aberrations :
update - darn it!
from aberrations :
HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!
from aberrations :
Goodness, don't keep us hanging! Tell us about the race and quit eating those stale fortune cookies from that cardboard box under you desk.<P> Love, Chel
from chaosdaily :
i think you should tell her about your premonition.... even tell her its just a feeling that you need to express to her. then at least you will know you did what you could.....
from aberrations :
Great Entry, Dan.
from chaosdaily :
i have a library in my basement of just over 1,000 paperbacks. i would bet that about 2/3 of them are sci-fi or fantasy. reading fantasy and sci-fi is tougher than other genres because of the vocabulary and new concepts... and i really think it expands your creativity.... they should be glad their kids are thinking enough to be into fantasy.. because it does take thought!
from goldieknox03 :
hey you. its been a long time. i just caught up on your entrys. Glad to hear your doing ok. :)
from elfinfun :
I am so sorry!
from aberrations :
I wish I had great advice. I don't. I can tell you that sex is not important when you love someone so much and that being without them makes your heart grow cold. Yet, somehow, I don't think this is the advice you need. Instead, I can read, which is almost like listening.
from chaosdaily :
but your son learned, somewhere along the line, to do what's best for the team. that's an important concept in life, something a lot of people just never learn. you should be proud.
from onewetleg :
hi! don't apologize for what you write. opinions are never wrong. take care sweetie. i think about you often.
from chaosdaily :
keep the faith doc! i feel the same way you do about religion...
from aberrations :
Now, wait a minute. What about all of us nosey people who want to know what your resolutions are? Hug? Love, Chel
from goldieknox03 :
george? definetly not. i dont know you well enough to compare you to anything better but you certianly are NOT george. i mean, at least kramer would be goofy funny. george is just the shrinkage guy, haha. and im totally with you on the newyears resolution things. i hate sharing them with everyone and not accomplishing them eventually. haha:)
from moodymelinda :
Good luck with the resolutions!
from onewetleg :
well, now would be a good time to start... i resolve to buy more socks.
from chaosdaily :
i hope you keep that one too!
from moodymelinda :
Maybe what she sees in George is very different from what you see in him...
from chaosdaily :
so he would have been in for testing on that leg at least, and it may not have changed anything. i dont know if you read about the ulcer i had on my leg, but i was thinking about gangrene the whole time.... glad it went away.
from chaosdaily :
is there anything anyone can do when it starts with the redness? or will it just run its course anyway??
from dragonfly-1 :
hey doc, glad you're still around. Miss you -df
from moodymelinda :
Hi there...thanks for the kind words:) I just emailed you...hope you got it...
from onewetleg :
i'm glad to see you back, once again. happy, uh, anniversary. keep writing. it helps. even if its just what you did today. it doesn't have to be good. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
awwww doc, everything you write is interesting!
from dyingisanart :
hiya. can i get your password please
from chaosdaily :
wow, doc
from chaosdaily :
wow what an awesome letter!
from goldieknox03 :
im back. if youd like the password let me know.
from moodymelinda :
Wow you are such a dreamer.......I never had a dream in a dream.....
from aberrations :
Hi
from onewetleg :
i, for one am glad to see you back. yes, alot has changed, but really everything is the same. loved the outhouse story. i can really relate to that one. been in more than one decrepit outhouse in my time. "i found myself looking at the sky more than usual", that was brilliant! keep writing. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
glad to see you back doc
from moodymelinda :
I think that you cannot take the easy way, simply because you care about your patients. Of course I am right ( being a woman and all )( I am always right heh). By the end of the day its good to know that you did the right thing, even thought it might not be taking the easy way...( And if they can catch one little mistake you did, then you can live with that too...right?)
from chaosdaily :
awww doc, you are doing ok. how do they expect you to remember all those patients names? not like you only see 2 or 3 people. hang in there, sometimes jobs get tough, and you just have to stick it out. if you know youve done the right thing, then dont let them push you out. dont stop coming back to dland, i would miss you.
from aberrations :
That is a strange dream. I hardly can remember mine. Chel
from onewetleg :
that sounds like my work dreams. the ones i have every damn night. and they wonder why i don't want to go to sleep.
from moodymelinda :
Isnt that annoying? not knowing how it ends? I hate that. Hey who knows, maybe you will come across something really valuable! If you do make sure no women can run off with it!
from aberrations :
Honey, you are looking at this all wrong. It's her time to take care of you and Jill now. Yep, you two need to make out a big "We want this" list. Love, Chel
from chaosdaily :
awww you're a good dad....
from chaosdaily :
welcome back, doc. chicago is nice, but pricey if you eat at the fancy places. the man and i are going in 2 weeks for a food show.....
from dragonfly-1 :
Miss you Doc :) Sounds like you had a good time on your cruise. You deserved the break. I went on Royal Caribbean in the '90s, Sovereign of the Seas to be exact. We sailed St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, and Bahamas. It was awesome. They really treat you well on that ship! I'll try and swing by more often to read more of your entries. Love DF ~ Friends Forever
from aberrations :
Please send me an e-mail. I lost yours when my computer passed away! Love, Chel
from dyingisanart :
hey doctor d... remember me? came back 2 dland recently hoping i could have your password. i miss reading your diary
from dyingisanart :
hey doctor d... remember me? came back 2 dland recently hoping i could have your password. i miss reading your diary
from aberrations :
Wow! Good Donna entry~!
from chaosdaily :
you can only do so much... its ok doc, i still love ya, and im still older than you too!!
from onewetleg :
isn't it nice to have diaryland to rant into? i hope you are all right. take care. love, jj
from goldieknox03 :
happy belated. I lost my password. Please? oh and i have anouther private blog. did you need addy and all? Hope all is well.
from aberrations :
Remember when we were younger. Remember the snow and the ducks.
from chaosdaily :
hey, what are friends for...
from chaosdaily :
you just turned 50?? happy birthday, kid. just remember there are people older than you, so dont be feeling so sorry for yourself. and besides, you are only as old as you feel... i usually feel like im still between 36 and 42... but that was quite a while ago... so, i just go on day to day, not thinking about how ancient i am becoming... and you are still younger than me!
from chaosdaily :
well you know, when you have kids, you cant always pick your drug of choice.. although pot and chocolate go well together, but being in jail doesnt, so i just stick to the chocolate....
from chaosdaily :
you passed up the weed merchants??? doc, i guess i havent taught you very well.... lol
from onewetleg :
argh! still no pants! the whole thing is driving me crazy. way to haggle the turtle and high fives in the state room, mate!
from onewetleg :
casual means, by definition, anything goes. jeans, shorts, tank tops, anything. you were not out of line wearing jeans. i can't wait to hear the rest of the story. did you find slacks? did you have to wear trousers? were you condemned to bib overalls? the suspense is killing me! love, jj
from chaosdaily :
i was wondering where you were.... can we assume you went with the warden?
from onewetleg :
ooh, fun! i can't believe you didn't even invite me! welcome back! love, jj
from goldieknox03 :
or maybe theres something wrong with HER. Either way. And yes something about all that powertools talk makes me hot.;)
from goldieknox03 :
oooo a bandsaw. sounds sexy.
from chaosdaily :
awwww doc *hugs* but they did good anyway, and i know you are proud of your son...
from chaosdaily :
and congrats to your son!! and the rest of the team too, even if one of the parents is a geek!
from chaosdaily :
yea, but you're a nice geek.....
from chaosdaily :
sometimes i think the cheap discount stores get seconds for their merchandise. it usually doesnt last, or doesnt work, or something....
from chaosdaily :
well doc, at least you will be there for him if he doesnt make it.
from elfinfun :
Happy Valentine's Day!
from elfinfun :
sounds like a lucky mailman!
from onewetleg :
no comment.
from onewetleg :
not such bad dreams. the bandsaw is probably, most simplistically, you fearing cutting yourself with power tools and more complex-ly a feeling of not being able to control something, or knowing you can control it but not doing anything about it. the locker, the dark, the rats, all very basic fears everyone has to some extent and not uncommon in dreams in varying combinations. i have a recurring dream where i beat a woman to death. i have it once or twice a year and its always the same woman. i have no idea who she is but i beat her for an hour or so and then kneel on her chest and cover her face with a pillow until she stops struggling. then when i take the pillow off her face she has eyes like cartoon x's this is usually where i wake up, but sometimes she stirs and i have to stomp on her chest some more. very disturbing. i wake in a cold sweat and i'm always afraid i'm still dreaming and she will be in the bathroom or in the hall. thankfully she never is. well, isn't that nice. trust me, you are not a weirdo. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
gee doc, you gotta stop eating those 3meat pizzas with anchovies and pineapple before you go to bed. but you know, we all have weird dreams, and they arent always able to be figured out. sometimes they are just weird. and i used to use a band saw when i would cut meat.. we sold it, cause no one really wanted to use it. i like having 10 fingers.
from chaosdaily :
thanks doc, i did enjoy it!
from onewetleg :
hello, stranger! i loved the veneer story. what a sticky situation! hehe. thanks for your note darlin. everything will work out. it always does. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
gawd you dont know what veneer does for me.... and my mind is freer than you think.......
from chaosdaily :
oh but i really want to hear about the veneer!! hehehe and i am over 50 and still no passport. bummer.
from chaosdaily :
ty for the tip, but the man would find a reason not to have a vaporizer in the bedroom. i do keep a bottle of water on my nightstand though, and usually have a sip if i wake up.
from chaosdaily :
ok ok, so maybe i was obtuse for not realizing you knew what was going on. its his kind of thinking that makes me feel sorry for the poor woman... he seems to have no clue what she wanted or needed. it happens way too often....
from chaosdaily :
ty for the shout out! *grin* but did you give any thought to the idea that maybe things between that couple had been going poorly for a year and a half, at least in the womans opinion? sometimes men can be unconscious of their living conditions, not an insult, just a matter of opinion. and that comment might just have been the last straw for her. or maybe he knew things werent going well, but just didnt want to tell you about it..... two different people, two different stories.
from goldieknox03 :
happy new year and all that:) I forgot my password to read yours. Note or email me?
from moodymelinda :
Godt Nytt År! Happy New Year to you too! I read though some of your entries...I havent looked in here much lately.....and you still make me smile......the things you write about is very known to me...
from elfinfun :
happy new year to you too!
from chaosdaily :
hope your new year is a productive one doc. love, chaos
from onewetleg :
aww, i love you too! you know, that's what diaryland is for. ranting. we all live for the rant. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
yea you are probably right..... that was the reason for the "i dont feel good" although i dont know that id try that if my husb was a doc....
from chaosdaily :
oh dont buy smokes... thats a bad thing. im sure theres some wood in your garage that could use work.... and you can work your bad mood off. the warden probably doesnt deserve it either..... and hang in there doc, we all do our ranting now and then. hugs
from chaosdaily :
happy anniversary... glad things are better. hugs, doc
from lovelyfae :
send me your email. we can swap passwords.
from goldieknox03 :
happy thanksgiving
from chaosdaily :
unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it wasnt from a virus. my computer just had a breakdown.....
from chaosdaily :
oh i can sympathize, doc. i spent 5 hours working on my computer on sunday.... just read my post....
from elfinfun :
greetings from ohio...north carolina wishes I was there.
from onewetleg :
why are you locked up again, dr? do you need me to come over and have a talk with someone? your kitty think sounds good. i hope the cat will use it. love,
from aberrations :
You are not using the semicolon correctly. Please review and try again. Thank you. Michelle Cope - personal friend of Clay Aiken.
from onewetleg :
hahahhahahahahahaaaa! good one.
from aberrations :
you are great at it
from chaosdaily :
or 3 am for the xray you HAVE TO TAKE NOW for a physician who wont come in to see it until 9 am. god, i hated call! hang in there doc, just be glad they all didnt have cancer or something.
from aberrations :
Do not leave me hanging. What was the freaking blue water from. Don't start a story and not complete it. Geez o peanut butter. mac
from chaosdaily :
yea those punctuation marks can really throw a snit, cant they? anyway, congrats to your kids, sounds like they are doing well. water polo was never my game; my horse kept drowning.....
from moodymelinda :
Hello again....thanks for the nice note over at my place :-)
from elfinfun :
Search "how to fell a tree". It may prove helpful in the future. HA! HA! I'm glad the cabin survived.
from chaosdaily :
oh my drug too. i use nestles instant cocoa, its the best. just a teaspoon or so in your coffee... mmmm i love winter, its the only time i drink hot coffee....
from moodymelinda :
Thank you!
from onewetleg :
#1 i loved your vaccination entry. just what i suspected all along. i have never been vaccinated and have only had the flu once. did you say 'pandemic?' oooh. scary word. do you think it could ever be as bad as the one that hit in the mid 19th century and killed like 200,000 people? (dates and statistics maybe wrong, but you get my point) it is nice to hear a point of view from an actual doctor who really has nothing to gain by writing about it in his journal. thanks. #2 your snarky little remark about the persimmons did not go over my head. you and dragonfly. you're both big meanie heads! now im going to go read the vaccine entry again. i may just link to it. so there. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
thanks doc, youre a peach ;-)
from dragonfly-1 :
I think you did the right thing by locking your diary. With the position you have as a doctor, you need to protect your reputation, professional and personal, every step of the way. Women are very catty and can do really crazy things when the want revenge.
from chaosdaily :
and dont worry, i wont sue for advice given over the net :P
from chaosdaily :
gee then i guess i shouldnt call you for my flu shot, huh? the only time i got a flu shot i got the flu..... i never got the flu after that, even working in a hospital with aids patients. i dont plan on getting it now, for me or my kids. i dont really think we need it... do you?
from chaosdaily :
you are close... zorro is our youngest cat, the kitten looked like him. but if we kept him overnight, it would have been way too hard to take him anywhere today. im sure that today hes not as hungry or cold as yesterday, and that makes me feel better about not keeping him.
from chaosdaily :
how about... i am alive, and i have good friends in dland who care about me!
from moodymelinda :
knock knock....
from dragonfly-1 :
Hey Doc, I can't get into your diary. Pls email me with the password - [email protected] Thanks dude Love Dragonfly
from chaosdaily :
ummmm... err... *coughs* maybe you did say that... ok, so i let someone else do the lifting today.
from chaosdaily :
wow, awesome speech doc! remember to speak slowly and enunciate!!!!
from onewetleg :
oh, too bad you couldn't get a photo of it and we could have put it in the binary translator. it was probably an invite to some geek only function. love,
from chaosdaily :
so just leave your cat out. a couple cold nights, and she will come in promptly. and ummmm 1-5:30 is only 4 1/2 hours...
from goldieknox03 :
im sorry to see your locked. if you grant me permission, id still love to read you. im trying to update more often. can you believe its been six weeks since i got married! mad crazyness:)
from chaosdaily :
thats about what i decided to do with the man. i do my own thing, what i want. he either goes along with it or... you know, like it or lump it. i dont bother including him in my plans because he never wants to do what i want. but all he seems to want to do is drink, and im not into that. if i make plans, and he goes along, he does nothing but complain, so i dont make plans for him. see a bit of passive-agressive there?
from onewetleg :
ooh, how yucky. i hope it all gets resolved soon and with the minimum of unpleasantness. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
yea trust is a big issue....
from onewetleg :
ok, i'm a dolt. i lost the password already. please email me [email protected] . sorry, i'm such a bother. :) love,
from onewetleg :
yar, ye land lubbers! i canna live without me mistress, the briny deep. yar.
from onewetleg :
you're very welcome! and you don't need an excuse for not writing. you have a life. i understand. :) love,
from chaosdaily :
yea, jj is great, isnt she?
from chaosdaily :
same ages for driving here in wisconsin, but they have restrictions once they get their license, like only one other person in the car, and restricted hours for driving.....
from onewetleg :
time passing is a blessing and a curse, eh? thanks for your note and comment the other day, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. no excuse, just absentmindedness. i'm glad you are back writing here. i have missed you alot. love, jj
from chaosdaily :
oh gee i know how you feel. my youngest can get his learners permit in a year, and hes soooooo irresponsible. i sure hope he gets a clue between now and then!
from chaosdaily :
hey good for you in that baby drill. if it was for real and you hadnt done anything, you would have regretted it. keep posting, and ill keep reading, even if your entries are boring.... not that they are now... errr well you know what i mean
from purplecigar :
Hey! Way to go with the baby! And, I'm with you on the explaining the absence thing. I'm lame like that.
from goldieknox03 :
hey where ya been? im getting married in 10 days!
from aberrations :
Dan, I love you. I miss your friendship. :)
from moodymelinda :
Hi there....sorry to hear about your friend who died....
from chaosdaily :
there may not be a heaven the way everyone says. but dont you think that all those "life energies" go somewhere? i believe that some are still around with us, some just go to a different plane (dimension if you want) and some of those energies are returned to earth as other humans... and im sorry for your loss.
from onewetleg :
congratumalations. i knew you could do it!! love,
from aberrations :
Oh Dan!!!! How wonderful for you. Did you get, like, a prize or something too. You know, one of those cool doctor bags. Again -- congratulations - really - way to go!!!
from purplecigar :
Hey! Congrats to you!
from chaosdaily :
im sure it feels great!! congrats!
from elfinfun :
Congrats! ! !
from purplecigar :
Now see? That's sweet. A father that actually likes to have his kids around. Nice.
from onewetleg :
happy fathers day to you. a little late, i know. sorry. thanks for your note. i don't think the cancer she has is small cell. and it's spread over alot of her body. anyway. we are trying to stay strong. and what did you call the second daughter? horsechild? lol. i hope it's because she likes horses. love,
from onewetleg :
congrats on going gold. the main reason i did it was so i could make entries anytime i wanted. and pictures. i expect to see some pics on your page now. ooh, and you can make surveys! how exciting! love,
from purplecigar :
Hey! I want to hire a landscaper, but I'm so afraid I will pass out once they give me the cost. But, your entry sort of makes it maybe seem worth it...
from elfinfun :
As an employee, I too can bitch, moan and groan along with the best of them. What I fail to remember is that we are just human and all make mistakes. Even I am not perfect. (I know you may find that hard to believe.) I also know that what tests are ordered are for the benefit of the patient and not to make our jobs hard, and that you are not just picking on us. We as employees should let you know more often that working for you is not the torture we make it out to be. So many places are not as flexible with the schedule and understanding when problems arise. I not only consider you a Boss but I would also like to consider you a Friend.
from aberrations :
Wow! What a wonderful entry. For me, although I'm just the boss of my cats *snort* like hell I am, anyway, this entry made me think about how I treat all people. Great entry!!!!
from onewetleg :
at least you are thinking about and trying to better your performance as a boss. not like some people... love,
from chaosdaily :
gee just the fact that you think about this makes you a good boss in my book.
from elfinfun :
So sorry for your loss. But are you sure it is really over...are you sure that the evil was not spread to the new system?
from chaosdaily :
isnt it funny how it always seems to be the "peons" who save the day?? brave little toaster indeed. and if you use a hammer, make sure its a metric one!
from onewetleg :
very good. you managed to vanquish evil drive. all the time i was reading that i saw it in panels, like a comic book. love,
from elfinfun :
Little buddy, you may have gotten a reprieve but the jury is still out on the pardon. Keep up the happy thoughts...
from elfinfun :
HA! I guess the secret is out of the bag or should I say box. I know you have noticed your replacement sitting right next to you. Oh, sure he is going to tell you that he is replacing your damaged vision. You just keep beleiving that. . .
from elfinfun :
hey, hey, my little computer buddy. I've got a secret. Something I am sure you know nothing about. Your time is growing short.
from onewetleg :
yeah, it did feel good. i love you, too this is what diaryland is all about.
from onewetleg :
so, why arent you online? i crave chat and no one is around
from onewetleg :
fabulous entry. i love it when plumbing goes right. in houses, and in people. does that make any sense? 'would drano let you hurt your pipes?' i rememeber that commercial. lol. love,
from elfinfun :
Listen here, you half blind box of bytes. If my "memory" is correct or at least "better" than yours, I recall taking you down for a couple of days. How did it feel to be among the missing? Keep it up and IT can happen again.
from elfinfun :
hey, I think your computer is conspiring against you
from purplecigar :
I don't think I've ever commented to you before. And, I don't quite remember who I found you through, but whoever it was, blessings. 'Cause, MAN, you are good.
from chaosdaily :
yea. gee. fun.
from chaosdaily :
yay! for onewetleg! and btw, its rainy and 55 here...
from over25revue :
from onewetleg. thanks, babe. you always make me laugh. you don't need a review. you rule. love, jj
from onewetleg :
i am so glad that you like it. i spent the whole day worrying if you would or not. yay! now you have a beautiful layout to match your beautiful words! love,
from moodymelinda :
Hi! Thanks for the friendly note over at my place....and the good advice.......i will try to remember that....:-)
from onewetleg :
wha?!?! three months? why? how horrible to have to wait 3 months to find out if you passed a fricken test!?!?! jeez. love,
from dragonfly-1 :
Good luck on your test. Watch your spelling :) Yes check out my template. Onewetleg did an awesome job. But she's not entirely done yet.
from onewetleg :
luck. look what i did to dragonfly's template. i could fix you too. love
from dragonfly-1 :
You'll know it's me when the Warden all of a sudden acts fun and nice toward you. Something very out of character for her. You should add me to your IM.
from onewetleg :
"("Just pretend this happened and that happened." It was great. Time for napping." that is some funny stuff. love,
from chaosdaily :
onewetleg is right re: dandelion greens. and is your puter a mac? mine is, and is all in one..... nothing to hook up but the keyboard and mouse.
from dragonfly-1 :
Whas up doc?! I haven't tried any out of body experiences this week. I've been busy :) But if and when I do and if I am successful, I'll certainly come down your way. What would you think about me taking over the warden's body?
from onewetleg :
dandelions are so delicious. the greens when they are young make a really good salad. and the flowers make fabulous wine. grass is the cancer. it's really very bad for the environment and takes over where good, edible plants could be. love,
from chaosdaily :
lol @ retarded little brother
from chaosdaily :
well im on messenger all afternoon, but you havent messaged me yet.
from goldieknox03 :
August 21st, 2004. I will be sealed and married in the Portland oregon temple. IM so excited. i love him so much.
from onewetleg :
sorry, i had to work late. i don't mind if you misspell words. i always know what you mean, anyway. get a spelling dictionary. thats what i have. i mean, i am an ok speller but there are some words i get stuck on. like license. and words with ie or is it ei? and definitley. agrh. that one kicked my butt for a long time. remember, the secretary has a secret and the principal is your pal. love,
from aberrations :
note to onewetleg: I am the diarist with 2 journals. This diarist is living a double life. This diarist is unsure of reations and only one person who knows me, reads my diary.
from onewetleg :
oh, boy, do i have words to say on this one. like cd said, 'my feeling are my feelings' i can write anything i want. i am an adult. i don't use real names or my companie's real name. i could get fired if i did. you can open a diary and not make your profile public so it would be very unlikely that anyone you know would find it. unless they google themselves. that is why i make up pseudonyms. it's really respect for the people i write about. and for my privacy. about the password: on my computer when i type in a username and password the computer gives me the option to save the password in my computer. so when i try to access the diary again, the form is already filled out. disclaimers are all well and good but they really don't keep anyone's feelings from being spared. if someone reads things about themselves a disclaimer isn't going to keep them from saying something to you unless they are very 'mature' and can handle others opinions well. most people aren't and can't. i don't see any reason to lock a diary unless you are underage and don't want your parents to know you are making with the nookie and smoking the ciggies and weed and what not. i guess that's all i have to say. i would need to know more about the diary and the diarist. love,
from chaosdaily :
my kids have both read diary entries of mine... it caused some problems with my son. i have a disclaimer on my profile, it was on my diary page for a while, but that didnt keep my daughter from reading it. my husb isnt computer literate, so i doubt he would ever find this on his own. and *shrugs* my feelings are my feelings, and if he does see it, well....... then he sees it, and he will have some decisions to make.
from chaosdaily :
hang in there doc. its as tough on you as on them, and they need you to be strong.
from onewetleg :
i guess people actually do buy time-shares. i thought it was just a running joke on the simpsons. hmm. i am sheltered in my way. come get your clam chowdah!
from onewetleg :
yay for dr dan!
from chaosdaily :
its like that when you own a business too. no matter how good your employees are, there is a lot to do before and after a vacation. glad you are back posting again!
from aberrations :
welcome back. you were greatly missed. hope you got a little sun, but not too much sun. love, me
from onewetleg :
come back, i miss you! come back, come back. why do i always seem to be saying that.
from cmacker :
Hey, new to diaryland. Came across your diary which is screaming for help. Try giving more to your wife. I guarentee you will get more back. Women want little things like handpicked flowers, a note that says "I love you", a phone call at work just to say hi, all those sappy romantic things. Try it and see what happens, just because I am curious.

from moodymelinda :
Oops I forgot why I went you your notes....I was going to say : HAPPY BIRTHDAY OLD MAN!! :D
from moodymelinda :
I wish life was fair too...and i don't like birthdays( my own that is)...I guess we just have to hang in there though.....and try to make the best of it...the alternative isn't that great is it?
from elfinfun :
are you home yet? miss you bunches!
from dragonfly-1 :
Happy belated birthday, Doc! A little bird told me you are now 49! I am truly sorry about your friend. I am not good with words at any time, but especially in a case like this. But I do like what you wrote. Cancer is just killing off everyone. When are they gonna find a cure???? I hope you're having fun in Florida.
from onewetleg :
i'm terrible with words at times like this. i'm glad for today for today was the day you were born. take care. love,
from chaosdaily :
its cancer that isnt fair. and happy birthday, try to make the best of it
from officegal :
hey i miss you. im posting on goldieknox03 now. i will try to catch up on you. have a good day!
from dyingisanart :
that is sooo much school. i have no idea what i want to do but i could never be a doctor, i'm too self obsessed. the system is different in ireland too so i probably wouldn't be able to. i'm thinking of doing SAT's and applying to Smith College though
from dyingisanart :
i guess you must get paid by the bucketload being a doctor- where did you go to college
from dyingisanart :
hey are you rich? 10000 on windows good God man. also on another note- do things get easier when you " grow up "???
from dragonfly-1 :
Okay I'm coming to Florida with y'all. Just put me in the trunk. I'll be quiet. No one will even notice me.
from dyingisanart :
he he he! youre the same age as my FATHER, weird? i think so! whens your birthday? --Ciara
from onewetleg :
by the way, my eye is fine. all the swelling went away but now there in a lump on my eyelid. sigh. just another day in the life of my face. poor things been trough hell. love,
from onewetleg :
you want spring? you should come here. it's been in the mid seventies and everyone is dying. oh, not literally, just complaining like they are dying. i don't love my job so much today. i'll write about it later. love,
from dyingisanart :
bonjour mon ami! this may seem rude i don't know (what with being an insolent teen and all) but what age are you?
from elfinfun :
just a line to say....HI
from onewetleg :
i'm sorry we got cut off to. about making your hobby your job. i did it and i have never been happier. i never get tired of sorting thru old clothes. i could do it all day. and then pricing and merchendising and selling them. ah. what? and i get paid, too? hallelujeah! love,
from onewetleg :
hi, dr d.
from onewetleg :
i think dragonfly1's note may be the most positive thing i've ever seen. and where have you been? update! update! love,
from dragonfly-1 :
Okay what's this about naming zits and eyes healing?? LOL Congrats to your son. He sounds awesome! Oh to be in highschool again ... Did you rent the limo? If you did, I can't understand why you didn't get laid. Limos are a give-in, aren't they? Perhaps you should do it again soon and just chance the rejection. My husband gets rejected all the time but never stops trying. And it flattering too that he still tries :)
from onewetleg :
no, i don't name my zits. funny cuz i name most everything else. they come and go too fast. the teeth and eyes is already healed up. thanks for the concern. love,
from elfinfun :
Congrats to your son! Saw his pic in the paper, looks alot like you.
from elfinfun :
Glad to hear you had a good time! You are not a shit, and whats wrong with butt largeness and purple hair. (At one point in time I happened to have both.) HA HA. Hope you are enjoying my time off.
from dragonfly-1 :
HI! I am here. Things are ok but the future is kind of bleak :). I will try and update tonight. I've been really busy the past couple of days.
from chaosdaily :
you're welcome. and congrats on the 100th entry!!
from chaosdaily :
thanks, hes feeling better. when i was a kid (a loooooong time ago) my mom got a prescription for coke syrup from our family gp. it always worked good for me, sometimes i threw up, but either way, it always made me feel better. some things just stick with you i guess.
from chaosdaily :
aberrations is right. a limo really impresses the women ;-)
from aberrations :
Great gift idea! I would get the limo. Honest. And I read every word of "Shop Talk with the Doc". Hugs, aberrations
from chaosdaily :
glad your son is doing well at the swim meets. but gee, i would be more than thankful if my husb ever volunteered to do anything with the kids. he complained about having to take my son to one of his baseball games last year......
from dragonfly-1 :
Sounds like a couple of ladies in your office need a swift kick in the butt. You know what? Me & JJ would do an awesome job working in your office. We'd totally rock. But in all honesty, I fell asleep at my desk once. But I don't think anyone noticed, Thank God! But it wasn't from a baby keeping me awake! It was from getting home at 6am from a club, sleeping for an hour, and getting to work for 9am! Those were the days! Happy Valentines Day. I hope you have a nice day.
from onewetleg :
hi. i'm glad you liked the e-card. the whole site it came from is fun. i can't remember the url. love,
from chaosdaily :
yea, its great to get back to work, i always could use the extra rest
from aberrations :
I want to slap her, I want to slap her, you know I want to slap her, I know it's my fault in the first place, can I please slap her. - Don't ever talk to her again.
from dragonfly-1 :
Kudos to your son for doing such a great job at swimming! Kids are so awesome, eh! You know I always knew deep down inside that the staff at medical offices raided samples from the pharmaceutical companies. I mean hey, I would too!!!!! And I have been wondering something and since you're the only Doc I know .... When you are meeting with patients do you look at them and think "eeeewwwww I just can't touch this person, or gee it's uncomfortable having to ttreat someone you know nothing about". Or do you just welcome everyone with open arms????
from chaosdaily :
well if you have a workshop, maybe you could fix my broken shift key lol
from aberrations :
Oh, yeah, I won a contest. I wrote a story about Clay Aiken. You know me, pretty humble when it comes to my writing. I also didn't want to bother you with you veneer and all, ya know. We had a great time. It was great to see you. Love, Aberrations
from chaosdaily :
hehe.... as a former xray tech, we used to call those patients "grocery orders" .... a little bit of everything. people dont understand how things work in medical offices, and it causes errors to happen.. i can sympathize with that
from chaosdaily :
hiya doc! im new to your diary, but not to dland. lots of things for me are the same as they are for you...
from moodymelinda :
Ohh no! I hate it when I show up twice. I don't know what happend. Oh well.. just delete it will you? ( i have tried to say this 3 times now, and get a message that i havent filled out the form, so if you get 4 messages saying the same then yes: i have lost it)
from moodymelinda :
so if I got a letter of recommandation from my boss its NOT a hint that I should start looking for a new job???
from dragonfly-1 :
Yes you should definitely give out those nice letters with the christmas bonus. Employees who feel appreciated will work harder and go the extra mile for you. I would rather work for an employer who appreciated me than an asshole who paid well. Still waiting for my paycheque .....
from elfinfun :
who said anything about happiness, I was thinking gym membership
from elfinfun :
So Dr. D, I can look forward to my raise on my next check, correct?
from elfinfun :
Whats this I hear about an employee pay raise? When does it start?
from elfinfun :
You are right, something wonderful must just be over the horizon. Thanks for the kind words and letting me cry on your shoulder. Love ya
from aberrations :
Did I hear someone say EMPLOYEE WAGE INCREASE? STAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCYYYYYYY!!! I HAVE NEWS!!!!!!!!
from onewetleg :
i love taking old stuff and making something new out of. be it clothes, furniture, food... recycling is cool. not recycling like seperating your bottles and trash. that's ok but it's not cool. love,
from moodymelinda :
Thanks for the kind note. Of course you are right, it's just that I see other people speaking out their opinion all the time, and I just really avoid any confrontation.
from lovelyfae :
HAHAHAHA! My father has been calling himself god for as long as I can remember. Me: Oh God! Dad: Yes? Once someone in the family asked him why. He replied, "Guaranteed Overnight Delivery."
from moodymelinda :
I guess you just have to pretend that you don't have dsl, so you keep writing entries.....whatever you wrote about that tool went way over my head though...
from aberrations :
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
from dragonfly-1 :
Hi I'm still here and reading faithfully. That was really nice of you to get those tickets for wArden. Hopefully someday something will break her ice.
from onewetleg :
nah, he's just leaving notes to everyone. what's really funny is to read his notes page. talk about some confuzzled d-landers. glad i could be of help with the mental image. don't forget the chaw. i must have a chaw while im on the tractor. love,
from onewetleg :
don't you just love cosmicsloth? very original and bizarre. what we all should aspire to be. so anyway. i hope the warden enjoyed the pneumatic nail-biter. i hope you really don't think i don't know about tools. because i do. i'm just teasing you. i went to an agricultural high school and can even do minor repairs on a tractor if i have to. love,
from cosmicsloths :
I have no idea: what's up?
from aberrations :
This note is really for onewetleg and one damp ciggy! You are right, next thing you know, we will be offering the Doc our Clay Aiken CD's. Let's expel gas, talk hockey, and wood. Oh my. Lumber, two by fours, power tools, table saw . . .
from onewetleg :
ha! no advice from me. you seem to be overrun with women trying to tell you how to live your life. (no offense to youse wimmens down dere, aight?) don't you have any guy friends? someone you can shoot the shit about fishing and football and burps and whatever menfolks talk about? love,
from aberrations :
There is someone out there waiting to love you for who you are not what she wants you to be. Please, please, for once, listen to the voice in your heart.
from dragonfly-1 :
Hey glad you're back. Don't give into the depression! Sometimes we all get it I think. I know what the "isolation room" is in the house warden wants. It's definitley your prison cell. That's where she can keep you locked up and miserable 4ever. As for the computer, don't give in. It's very poisonous. And controlling. It'll be your best friend and your worst nightmare at the same time.
from aberrations :
Damn you! There is a pill. I know there is a pill. There must be a pill. I want to be 17 again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! oops, no 22, I want to be 22 so I can lay Clay.
from onewetleg :
after living in one room for so long, i'm with you. i want privacy. a nice communal room is good, but i want to be alone for once in my life. love,
from aberrations :
Don't go into the light. Stop, Stop it! Stop looking at the light. It is not your friend. It wants to control you, own you, if it had a bottle, you would be in it. Don't go into the light.
from aberrations :
Do I know You?
from moodymelinda :
hi there....welcome back
from lostmormon :
nice nickname "the warden" ha ha. shoulda brought the gfriend. you painted a lovely family pic about the snow and the kids. i hope you are doing well. do keep care! email me [email protected] oh yea and yea for broadband! :)formerly officegal, then m-fslut now....im just lost.....;)
from aberrations :
duh - duh - DSL doesn't make you go blind. duh - and you being a doctor and all.
from onewetleg :
you will be sorely missed. love,
from onewetleg :
how do we treat the plague these days? something better that a bag of aoestefida around the neck, i hope. love,
from wench77 :
hey, I never heard those weather sayings before... the green/ black one is intriguing! Here we say "in like a lion out like a lamb" and vice versa... but I think that only applies to March, and not to the whole of winter. hmm. the Plague huh! well, happy new years!
from dragonfly-1 :
Sounds like you had a nice new years eve. I'm glad the warden was in a good mood. Sounds like a nice night. A least you got out! And the tools .. oh the tools yes. Um hmm.
from lovelyfae :
Hahaha. Thanks man. And a happy new year to you!
from onewetleg :
actually it was mix of sarcasm, perv and truth. i like it when people talk about things they are excited about. i can feel your eyes glaze over when you talk about the tool shed and the things in it. haha! love,
from onewetleg :
maybe the warden is just happy she doesn't have to see lotr. oh, and please, tell us more about your tools! lol. love,
from moodymelinda :
Happy New Year!
from m-fslut :
new name is lostmormon i decided slut doesnt fit me. and i feel determined and willful now, but still a bit confused and i know mormon is my main thing im not lost about. i hope christmas went well. i hope you doing good. surgery was fine. i keep tearing stitches. i worked the day after surgery.. and everyday there after. no cancer though. yeah! thanks for your well wishes. more vicodin for me. i got a date tonight..... loves and kisses J
from dragonfly-1 :
Um, I think Jj told me she already had plans for New years (*wink wink*) so I would absolutely LOVE to go with you. I don't care about the stuffy old doctors. I love playing blackjack. Gimme some drinks, some smokes, my monopoly money and I'll have a great time no matter what.
from onewetleg :
now that would be creative black tie!! (refers to elfinfun's note) lol. i see i was gone for a day and the whole site didn't crash. this really helps with my codependency, let me tell you! haha! love,
from elfinfun :
really turn over a new leaf...go as Danielle and take a date...have a great time
from onewetleg :
take meeeeee!
from aberrations :
take a girlfriend. it's a new year, turn over a new leaf. find a date.
from elfinfun :
glad you had a good christmas, hope you didn't eat too much. Thanks for your good thoughts and holiday wishes. Hope too see you soon. Thanks for all you have done.
from onewetleg :
you can't remember grade-shcool either? i have some fleeting memories, but nothing i can really grab on to. i know people who can name everyone that was in their class. creepy. happy new year. love,
from aberrations :
It's so nice to see that the ladies are helping you to spruce things up. You need spruced up. You deserve to be spruced up. I am sending you warm holiday thoughts and my love. You are my dearest friend. And, ummm.... I just know I can count on you for bail money if I would perhaps decide to start stalking.
from onewetleg :
you and dragonfly think i know stuff when i really don't. have you SEEN my diary? that shits ugly! hahaha. yeah, i recommend bake-a-cake designs. check out jjisjj. i love that layout. love,
from dragonfly-1 :
Congrats to your son! The butterfly is hard. i've been trying for over 25 years and still haven't got it! Can't wait to see the new layout. If you go to luckydesigns, it's really easy. My diary has the link. You just click the one you like and some of them don't even make you do the html. You just make sure your diary is open in another browser and click on "change it" and it magically changes the whole layout of your diary. It's a no-brainer for the brainless like me!
from dyingisanart :
hey go to beautify and pick a template, it tells you how to use it and they are nicer than the d-land templates
from lovelyfae :
1st stop of the day: ohswim. 2nd stop: Waffle House.
from dragonfly-1 :
Hey Doc! Missed you guys. I hope you're feeling a little better. I think I've been having the same symptoms as you. i just want to sleep. Oh and I think that we should just give JJ the passwords to our diaries so that she can do all the coding and links. I don't know about you but it's almost mind-boggling for me.
from onewetleg :
oh, look! you are at your 69th entry! haha how fun! good on ya for getting your last five on the page. now go put your title above the entry. %%short_description%% come on, why is everything a battle with you? :p love,
from onewetleg :
ayup. it worked. good job. now go to 'change your template' and look at all the little codes under the box with your html in it. try to get your last five entries to show up. the code is %%older_entries%% then you will have a nice list of your older entries so if someone misses one they can just click on the link and get all caught up! come on and dive into the world of coding. it's easy and fun and sheesh your a doctor. you went to medical school. this is nothing! it's not like your performing brain surgery. :) love,
from onewetleg :
not light years. i have only been on line for a little more than a year. all the html and crap i have learned since may. it's easy, really. you just have to learn codes and where to put them. it's all about copy and paste. once you learn to copy and paste...well, everything has been written already. you just have to find it and put it where you want it. next time you make an entry type this: %%diary-onewetleg%% into your entry some where. there. you have made a link to my diary. love,
from onewetleg :
a few down days. yeah, it happens. just remember i love ya. sorry we got cut off yeaterday. bummer ): love,
from officegal :
m-fslut
from lovelyfae :
Don't delete it! One thing I don't understand, writing something, but only to delete it later. No point. Share what you feel. It's all good. Oh yeah, onewetleg sent me. I read. I liked. I shall return!
from onewetleg :
no! good entry! don't delete! love,
from onewetleg :
you have to remember that that is the point of reviews. you submit your diary and recieve the opinion of someone who is a disinterested party. she made her point, she finds my font annoying and she can't see my text very well. and that is what i asked her to do. believe me, i have had some really crappy reviews. people that didn't even read the diary at all. thanks for the input. love,
from dragonfly-1 :
Thank you for your story. You put a much needed smile on my face. You write well. And yes, it was snowing when we went to the movies yesterday. And I felt exactly how you wrote. Thanks! What's this about an anal candy cane removal???
from onewetleg :
very nice. glad you got snow. we had a major rainstorm last night but the sun is shining now. love your image of the girl and her mother. love,
from aberrations :
Wow, you are now a a surgeon. An anal candy cane removal.
from aberrations :
AOL has changed something in the last few days, we were talking about it at school. Sorry to lose contact with you. Watch my diary for picture updates and such. :) P.S. Have a wonderful life, live the Christmas story, have Chinese duck instead of turkey, visit Whoville, buy red light bulbs and let your children sit on the laps of strange fat men in red suits who haven't shaved for who knows how long. Michelle
from onewetleg :
oh, please. don't play the jealous one on me. i won't believe it for a second. love,
from onewetleg :
make her something. you are a handy one. made gifts are the best. make a small box and call it a wishing box. you whisper your wishes in it and they come true. and wrap it in a scarf tied with a ribbon. i hate wrapping paper. well, love, just do your best.
from dragonfly-1 :
Aw I think it's so sweet that you want to get her something nice for xmas. I don't have any ideas. I'd say jewellery but maybe that wouldn't be appropriate. How about a chain saw? Love DF
from officegal :
hes having commitment issues. i cried. oh well. it may or may not work out. its only love. i dont need it to survive??? hope all is well in dland:)
from onewetleg :
where's the jam? i dunno. i love it. it's classic. congrats on defeating the evil donut. i knew you could do it. where's the jam. i can't stop laughing. i think i peed. now im laughing even harder. oh, its a vicious circle/cycle. oh, my side. oh, tears. where's the jam? hahahhaa
from dragonfly-1 :
If we all have dinner, I INSIST on cooking for you:) Don't worry you guys I wouldn't ever do that. Or heh we can eat out or order in which is always a fun treat for me. And I know the Amish make the best of everything. Last month I bought a jar of their homemade strawberry rubarb jam. It was the best jam I'd ever tasted that I ate the whole jar in a day. Everone was like "where's the jam" and I just said "I dunno, must have left it at the market".
from officegal :
i miss reading you. Have a good december:)
from onewetleg :
thank you for joining the weekenders diaryring. i hope to get somemore joiners. that way when your home on a saturdaynight you can have someone to read. maybe make some new friends when everyone else is out partying and snowboarding. love,
from onewetleg :

from ohswim :
I like the idea of a weekend club. Couldn't find the diary ring. Will I get an invite? Love ya
from onewetleg :
welcome to the weekend club. i am going to make a diaryring right now love,
from dyingisanart :
hiya- youre not the person i ever expected to have on my faves- but there you are and now i'm quitting my diary- i left a last entry. i'll still be reading yours and don't dare take me off your faves in case i come back someday
from officegal :
great posting i read, i am impressed darling. I have had a wonder full thanks giving. i started dating shy boy. he likes me. he even holds my hand. i will be careful about giving my heart though. I hope all is well with you. please take care and know you are in my heart:)
from onewetleg :
i can't wait for the next installment. will she use her powers for evil or good. i read it to tommy and he thought it was pretty funny too. love,
from onewetleg :
i can't believe you made a diary entry about attic leeches. and the dust of christmas past. damn, we are brilliant. i laughed hard. 'babe, i feel a draft...'
from dragonfly-1 :
I kow how you can make the Warden be nice for a few days! You can use up that sexual energy you have on her! Try it you might like it! Even if you don't want her mentally at least you'll be gettin yours :)
from onewetleg :
you always log in and out of yahoo messenger so fast. i'm in invisible mode. give me a minute to get to you!
from dyingisanart :
do you actually love her? because if you don't whats the point?
from onewetleg :
oh, television! i thought we were doing literature. or something.. are you online? come chat with me if you got the time. lllove,
from onewetleg :
i agree with dyinisanart. but im not going to tell you to leave her. you have to choose. and guys do rule. what man? what shoes? what 30 years? what? what? love,
from dyingisanart :
(0continued from last message)she is making you miserable and having a miserable father will upset your kids
from dyingisanart :
PLEASE just leave the bitch. your kids might understand- what age are they? she
from officegal :
happy happy days to you!
from officegal :
and you, dear sir, i am thankful for. your help crys to a deep dream of mine to work in medical. I dreamed of doctor, but i would rock as a office one. I was blessed with a seasonal position at meier and frank. I hope to shoot for the sky or at least far enough to pay for bills. as I have no money at all. I wish i could sound more hopeful, because i am. The Lord blesses me greatly. I hope you thanksgiving is all you deserve! Love from your former officegal J
from dyingisanart :
you are REALLY thankful.
from dyingisanart :
you are REALLY thankful.
from onewetleg :
very nice. very original. ;) of course, i have to say one thing. starbucks! starbucks? i know the drive thru is convenient but i'm sure you could find a nice local shop that could really use your support. i'm sorry, i just had to say it. i really tried not to. have a nice thanksgiving. love,
from dragonfly-1 :
We had Thanksgiving at the beginning of October. Is the Warden cooking or the prisoner? Watch out ~ I hear they put funny stuff in inmates' food. I know, about that money is too much right now. I mean I was wondering how I was going to buy xmas presents to begin with :) let alone have to fork out more money to the government. This isn't the first xmas they did this either. Two years ago we had to pay $1000 in Dec for something I can't remember what. Total? Close to $12,000 including lawyer to date. I'll let you know what excuse I come up with tonight. Maybe if I go for a few days w/out a shower he won't want me. Hmm great idea! The illegal immigrant story is done. Happy reading. DF
from onewetleg :
oh, you doctors with your sinister sense of humor. tell us of the pranks that you played in med school... lol, good job on geting the list thingys out on time. love,
from elfinfun :
a person should never be ridiculed for doing what they believe is best for the family. As long as they continue to do what is best for them, without losing site of the end results, that being a better person. A person who they can look at in the mirror and still respect. Compromise does not mean defeat.
from onewetleg :
"And if officegal is a 54-year truck driver from Duluth with a potbelly and onewetleg is a guy named Bubba who?s doing time at Levinworth?" actually, i am the truckdriver and officegal is bubba. but your point is still valid. love, jj
from dragonfly-1 :
You're getting all sentimental on me. Now my eyes are starting to water. Must be those allergies! I wanted to tell you something a long time ago. You said that you didn't want your diary to be about your problems with the Warden and that you wanted it to be about you and self-improvement. Well writing about the Warden and your problems is the start of your self improvement because these diaries are like therapy. I know I'm not a doctor but that's how I think :). I'm glad I've met a nice inmate to share my life sentence with.

cheers, man. i wish i'd had a father like you. do what you have to do, what you know is right in your heart. and NEVER edit your thoughts. love,
from officegal :
how hard to do. I admire your strength. YOu are a great father. Keep your chin up. we are rooting for you;)
from dragonfly-1 :
Oh Dr. D. You are thinking the way I am thinking. I am staying for the sake of my children. If I didn't have them I'd have been gone a helluva long time ago. Now I look at them and think about how hard it would be for them not to have mom & dad together. I feel like I must hold out for as long as I can for them. Even if it's just for a few more years.

Two nude bodies lying, side by side, in the fog as it rolls off the bay, is juxtaposition you would like to be in correct?
from onewetleg :
tommy and i want to move to rivendale too. i imagine that on this planet there is a place where humans pretend to be elves and speak elvish and practice the elvish arts. tee-hee! how much fun would that be? oh, and juxtaposition? the placement of things side by side? i thought only astronomers used that word. juxtaposed. i juxtaposed the books on the shelf. silly word :) love, jj
from onewetleg :
ubiquitous. one of my favorite words. how's this: your ubiquitous lack of planning does not my emergency make. oh! yess! using the word of the day and ending with a preposition! score!
from onewetleg :
yeah, you're right. but the extras make it more mine. my favorite things and my personality shine through them i think. especially these days when my entries haven't been to exciting. how'd ya dig that stoned one? 'yeah, like, wow! stuff is cool' ugh. love,
from dragonfly-1 :
I'm sorry if I scared you!! That was a photo of myself that I wanted to post so everyone could put a face to my name!!! DF
from officegal :
wow im jealous, you know i was gonna be a doctor. but then my health got bad, and my grades have slipped. oops. now ive settled into receptionist work. I'll go to school when ive calmed down a bit. i just want to get married. im lonely. anyways. i hope you have a lovely lovely weekend:) cheers;)
from onewetleg :
yeah, that is the point. its the day after thanksgiving that they really start shoving the crap down your throat. it's such a dual edged sword for me because i work in a store and i use the tactics to sell things. but i justify myself because it is 2nd hand merch and it is for charity. la-la-love,
from officegal :
i love new definitions... i need to start posting those regurally, Ha then maybe i could spell that----^^^^^word. oh well. see what not finishing college does to ya....maybe next year:)
from officegal :
first off. your making me very hungry with all this syrup talk. i mean waffles, yumm... i havent had waffles in ages. mmmm second. im sorry you are going through such a tought time. you seem very strong and resolved. i wish you luck and happyness. Im so impressed to see you make such positive reinforcements in your life. im soo happy to see a "friend" (is it wierd to refer to you as that?) come up with such awesome ideas and life changing thoughts. ps. what sort of doctor are you? Have a beautifull friday. your favourite officegal, J
from dragonfly-1 :
My mom was just diagnosed with dimentia too. My main problems with her are from growing up but the dimentia has not made it any easier. How do you cope? We're finding it almost impossible to deal with some days.
from elfinfun :
you need to stop beating yourself up, stop doubting your decisions. as for death it is not always sad, it is only sad for those left behind, not for the person who died. because the person who died is no longer in pain and quoting martha stewart "that is a good thing". we survive by knowing that the pain is over and that better days are ahead for both the living and the dead.
from elfinfun :
thanks so much for your words and thoughts, it means so much to me to know you care. We all knew the end was near, but seems to always take one by suprise. The Drs say it happened fast and there was little or no suffering. We are glad for that. We were given two additional years with him, due to the deeds of a wonderful DR. (maybe you know him). I would just like to say thank you to that wonderful DR. THANK YOU!
from dragonfly-1 :
Dichotomy? I was unsuccesful in finding the meaning on the net. Perhaps you can enlighten me.
from dyingisanart :
its ok- all done but thanks for the offer!
from dragonfly-1 :
I wanted to let you know I read your Sep 23 entry. You asked that whomever reads it emails you to let you know. I think we are living the same Prison Life. Heart's not there; we're just here cuz of the kids.
from dragonfly-1 :
Ohswim! So I need to go to Sturgeon Falls! I looked on a map and it's not that far from here. We're talking about going away next summer so it would be great to go there to see the place you're talking about. Thanks for the tip, doc! I'll remember that today when I keep finding things to do that seem more important than exercising.
from onewetleg :
btw, don't you love dragonfly1'a diary? i want to come and take her away. if only i had a four bedroom house and i could borrow your jet.
from onewetleg :
Oh, ha-ha very funny.:> i happen to have a disorder where typing with capitalization gives me migraines. it's called 'idontgiveashititis.' :p on a happier note, i'm off for the next two days. maybe we can chat for a few? whatev. mwah! love, jj
from dyingisanart :
stop thinking about what your wife wants and how things seem to her (eg giving in) and think about your kid who might be crushed if you don't go.
from dragonfly-1 :
Yes, you're correct! It's Barrie, Ontario. I've lived here just a short time but it's oh so beautiful. Are you from Canada or did you just come here for vacations? Dragonfly-1
from onewetleg :
hi, boo. how are you doing? sorry about your friend. i hope you are doing ok. take care. love, jj
from dragonfly-1 :
Hi Ohswim, I've been reading your entries over the past few days. I found you in OneWetLeg's list of favourite diaries. I'm going to add you to my list of fav's too, if you don't mind. And by the way, I may send you notes from time to time as that's what I like to do. I am also going to apologize ahead of time in case I ever end my sentences with a preposition or circuitous sentences :). Grammar has never been my forte.
from officegal :
hey doll, im sorry about your angry patient. reminds me of what happened to me tuesday. This tenant that came in drunk and reeling. he was bieng very lewd towards me. which scared me cause hes 300+ and yea... men scare me regardless of size, but him. yea. he was talking to imaginaries! maybe if i try i could come up with the words to put it in a entry. as for your friend down south. i hope things clear up and you have a absolute supurb day!
from onewetleg :
i just saw all of your offline messages. im sorry, i really wasn't there. i thought i sent and told you i had a change of plans. sorry for the misunderstanding. love,
from onewetleg :
you are good. there. now have fun at the mall and maybe try to find a thrift store. *used, used* (says the spooky, hypnotising voice) *you want to buy used* love, jj
from dyingisanart :
you don't have a lock- i just thought you said you were getting a lock- i just realised you meant for your door- sorry :)
from dyingisanart :
hey tell me what the code is to your lock- love your diary :)
from elfinfun :
now I am crying, I am not sure why. Maybe because I hate to see a good person beat himself up. I know you feel responsible but there were so many things that led up to this incident. A lock on the door in theory is a good idea, it would make your staff feel a little more secure. But I think that they are all aware of the fact that if he really wanted to cause trouble a little issue of a lock on a door would not have stood in his way. I am also sure that the only one that should feel badly for what happened is your partner, for continuing to write scripts knowing that this patient had a problem. After all you are only a doctor not GOD, you do what you can and you learn from your mistakes. I am sure that by the end of the week there will be a lock on the door. Everyone will be a little more secure. So buck up and stop beating yourself up. And see your staff really does care about you, you as a person and friend not just as a boss. How about a few cyber drinks later? Sounds like you could use a beer or two.
from onewetleg :
oh, honey, im sorry. get a lock. it's no big deal, really. well, it is a big deal. it's not your fault. it's the fault of the crazed drug-addict who came and threatened you and your staff. just get a lock and don't beat yourself up. we can't live in a castle with a moat and stone walls. we can be aware of our surroundings and be able to defend ourselves if the occasion arises. have you and your employees take self defense class. turn fear into strength and awareness. yours, ever preachy, jj
from onewetleg :
huh-huh. leaf blower. good luck at counseling. love, jj
from onewetleg :
beautiful. you write very well. i am jealous. love, jj
from officegal :
what a great story of the refinishing. good luck on the "table"
from onewetleg :
*blushes*
from elfinfun :
are you sure that not one person on your staff would take care of you the way they take care of your partner. I find that hard to believe...you seem like such a kind and considerate person.
from officegal :
thanks for the note. happy entry you wrote. it is a beautifull day for me too:)
from dyingisanart :
hi! i read your diary today- the whole thing, loved it - its amazing to find some one on diaryland who is so pro-active (although i hate that phrase) --ciara
from ohswim :
Thanks to elfinfun. Can't find you other than here, so responding to you here. I like the analogy. Its a good idea for my next entry. Thanks for reading.
from elfinfun :
from reading your entries, it seems like your life is alot like the drop leaf table. Things are not perfect. But you are working to improve them, this stage in your life is like the leaf in the table. A little imperfet around the edges but it is still a work in progress. Good luck with the table and life.
from aberrations :
Oh that's easy enough. Michelle visits both Dan and Jeff in hospital where both are suffering from sprained sprockets after moving piano to build wall. Check out my new pix. It's a Halloween Hoot!!!!
from officegal :
you changed the commment on me.well thanks dooll. im glad you stood firm. good for you:)
from onewetleg :
congrats, the counselor is always right. *cough* well, im glad you got through it. don't feel guilty for taking care of yourself. after all, you are very important. love, jj re-reading this it sounds very sarcastic. i don't mean it that way. more love, jage
from onewetleg :
counseling? ugh. good luck. just be yourself. im sure you are wonderful. love, jj
from officegal :
you wonderful you. thanks for the beautifull entry. i hope you can come to me with problems if you have them... if you need a sounding board. anything. you helped me through a rough day.... i owe you 0ne:) much lovin from oregon
from officegal :
i dont know how to stop sometimes. its as if i am tumbling down like a snow ball, its just gets worse. how do you stop the rolling?
from officegal :
like i dont want to admit the light that is within me. admit that i am ok. admiting that means that i have to treat myself better. and i dont deserve that yet
from officegal :
yea... there is a lot of strength in me. its just hard to find sometimes
from elfinfun :
new found friends are a great thing to find, they open the world up to you. Make you realise that you are not alone, that people go thru trials of life everyday, and survive. Many of them much happier than when they started. Keep smiling and everyday will get easier to handle. Old friends are great to have also, because they before anyone else will tell you exactly how it is, even if you dont want to hear it. They do this out of love, because to them when you hurt they hurt.
from onewetleg :
circuitous means to take the round-about way. but the definitions would be nice. great talking to ya! have a super day! lalalaaa, jj
from officegal :
circuitous yea im blonde. whats that????
from aberrations :
OK - about the word of the day. I am busy. I have a life. And I don't know where the hell I packed my dictionary. Could you please start defining the word of the day.
from onewetleg :
thank you, sir. i have always felt that i was put upon this planet for the sole purpose of making others laugh. it's good to know im doing my job. love, jj
from onewetleg :
what a wonderful entry. thank you. love, jj
from officegal :
oh doll. it was a good memory. we were so happy then. me and him. so soo in love. it was a very happy. its just the polar extremes of my harsh alone realitys compared to my bittersweet memories was too much for me at the moment. im fine. it was a happy memorie. im happy you made me think of it.
from officegal :
oh hun, you just made me cry... cat stevens and that song.. nate sung it too me. i still remember the night... crossing the bridge. darkness around. and light in our hearts. we held hands. he held my heart. cat stevens will always remain with him. cat was his before he was ours. now there is no ours... im sorry to go off on a tanagent. feeling a bit reminiscint. ps. dont stay together for the children... im glad my parents did not. kids are smart. even young children sense when there is not love. seek the closure i have not...
from ohswim :
Damn, I can't add an entry. I guess I'll have to try later.
from onewetleg :
was the song 'cat's in the cradle?' or was that someone else? i know 'breaking up is hard to do' was paul anka. love, jj
from aberrations :
Geez o' Pete Give you a roll of doublestick tape and you'd be happy. :)
from officegal :
hey. i just found you. i joined the cant get read. and clicked randomly to find you. you seem wonderfull. do you mind if i add you so i can read your journey? leave me a note to say yes. i dont want to invade your privacy... ps. i think your cool so far. and your a doctor. i admire that. ive always wanted to be one. look at me babble. ill stop bothering you:)
from onewetleg :
thanks for joining the diary ring. i'm glad i could make you smile. feel better. jj
from aberrations :
WHAT DO I THINK? You shouldn't beat yourself up. This is oh so natural. I've been through it twice and lost friends who I'd hoped would be life long both times. In a sense it's a matter of what makes the world turn. Certain people are put in our paths at times for certain things.
from onewetleg :
my computer is loading so slow that i forgot what i wanted to say. something along the lines of 'stay strong' and 'you can do it!' and 'are you on yahoo, because id like to chat with you.' love, jj
from onewetleg :
ooh, i love a cliffhanger. tell me more!
from aberrations :
a big shout out to onewetleg! Also, Doctor - for you - 2 words. Just 2 words. No, one sentence and 2 words. Thank you for the chicken and mashed potatoes. AND BORN FREE
from onewetleg :
if you want a guest book go to bravenet.com. you can get guestbook and lots of other stuff. but you get pop-ups too. i've been reading abberation. love, jj
from onewetleg :
you're making perfect sense. i have actually been on both sides of this dillemma. if that makes any sense. hey, thats what the dark is for, duh. and yes i would like to wear your doctor coat. i need some medical training, i think. what is a z-pak? love, jj
from aberrations :
Hmmm.. a quote aye, yeah I got your quote Dr. D! "To infinity and beyond."
from onewetleg :
i dont know about happier, but ive always tried to keep my life simple. no car, live close to work and shop in my neighborhood. i can go weeks within a 6 block radius and if i never get in a moving vehicle for the rest of my life, ill be happier. love, jj
from onewetleg :
$300! *whistles thru teeth* whoa! thats a lot of scratch! i think real therapy is cheaper than that. oh, well. i only shop in thrift store and dollar stores. got white trash? oh, yeah, baby! if i spend $60 i think im really livin it up. i thinks you and i come from very different worlds. i like that. tell me more. love, jj
from onewetleg :
oh, yes! retail therapy is good for you, dr d! hehe. the funny thing is you really are a doctor. i did not know that. joining the rings is easy and gets you linked to other people. if thats what you want, then go click on diaryrings directory and pick some out. the code to get a ring appear on your page is, for example, %%diaryring_fucktemplate%% this is a ring i run. if you go to change your template and enter this somewhere in your template, then the ring will appear on your page! isnt this exciting!!! love, jj
from onewetleg :
hmm... is sally your wife, or the one you had an "affair" with? i've always hated that term, too. i would be honored if you would join my diary rings. at least the cantgetread ring. consider it. a little networking never hurt anyone. love, jj
from onewetleg :
i've always hated the term mid-life crisis. but people like to label and pigeon-hole stuff so its easier to talk about. oh, and networking. believe it or not, i am learning all about networking here at diaryland. its kinda cool and in less than a year i've amassed 35 people who list me in their favorites. and i cant write worth a crap!!! congrats on the weight-loss. and keep updating. love, jj
from onewetleg :
yes! im glad you're back. where did she get such a fundamentalist idea from? marriage is a partnership, not employee/employer. well, take care of your self, ok? i dont want to lose my newest favorite diarist!
