FRYday, another wonderful FRYday in Santa Barbara. Well someone got to me a little. I know it's hard to believe. I'm such a solid person really...hee hee hee. It's the same old thing. I'm sitting here thinking now why do I let people like this bother me they are like those little bugs that fly around your head you can never smash they are always in your face irritating you. Buzzing, buzzing, buzzing, they land on your nose and take a little scrap and it itches all day. Oh Well You ever notice in your lives there is always at least one JERK, at any given time in life? I'm sure there is someone in my life that cringes when they see me because to them, whoever they are, I am their JERK. There is always someone and you better get used to it because they are always going to be there, while you are here. I used to try and avoid THEM but I have found thru the years, jeers, beers, tears, out my ear that THEY are unavoidable. Sooner or later you're going to be stuck in a situation with a JERK, and there's going to be no way out so you better just make the best of it unless you own a wood chipper.
I used to love watching my Grandparents; they were Pro's at dealing with JERKS. It seemed to me that a good number of the people in their lives were JERKS, and in fact the word JERK has been used quite often in our family so much so it should be out family crest. My Grandparents would have these dinner parties, all their friends would show up and after dinner they would all sit around play cards and drink. After a few drinks, the arguing would start. It was more of a sarcastic snapping competition and it was really funny watching all of them get drunk and talk SMACK to each other. I remember thinking I hope I have friends that good someday. If you have a friend in your life that happens to be a JERK, the one thing you can usually count on is honesty because they are not going to hold nothing back. I have a couple JERKS in my life and they are so honest it hurts sometimes. But they are people I can count on when times are rough and I'm down. There is always a JERK around to comfort me and make me remember this saying: Don't take Life so seriously, you'll never get out Alive.
Were all different here on Edhat we would probably never hang out with each other in a zillion years unless we were drunk as skunks but it's fun to get on Edhat for our daily fixes of Sarcastic Snapping Competitions, attempting to find the one thing that breaks thru to irritate the other to no end. While the NANNY hits delete over and over again. There is no shortage of Jerks to delete on Edhat, myself included but it takes one to know one in my book. Think how boring life would be if there were no Jerks? It would be horrible who in the HELL would we all argue with? Ourselves? I do that anyway but it's much better when someone's there even more so, because people look at you weird when you're arguing with yourself in public. I love to talk to myself in Trader Joes everyone gets outta my way. I used to love to go to Trader Joes on a FRYday Evening with my best friend and embarrass the HELL outta him right around dinner time when at least half of Santa Barbara was in there scoring some good grub. The place was packed like sardines and I'd pick some random off the wall movie talk like "Make my Day" and yell it at the top of my lungs. Everyone would turn around and I'd look at my friend real concerned like and I'd say "Brad, are you alright?" Boy would he get angry. He'd run out of the store while I'd stand there and try to make excuses for his sudden outburst of Turret's, poor guy sometimes I think he would still be alive if I wasn't such a Jerk!
Oh Well...I'm wondering if anyone knows if Doctor Greg McDonald of McDonalds Animal Hospital is still hanging out around town? I know he retired and sold his vet hospital but he was around for a bit helping out. The hospital formerly known as McDonalds Animal Hospital has changed management so former patients like Pooh Bear that made monthly payments for their medical care were tossed for those who could afford to pay then and there. Oh Well no matter to me. I'm seeking the former owner and original doctor because it's time for Pooh's yearly shots and he was most comfortable getting them from Doctor McDonald. I will have to pay someone else to show up here for his shots. If not I don't mind that so much as what one vet said "If my cat bites he would have to be quarantined for 10 days. I suddenly don't want to get his shots now or hire any vet after hearing that. I love my little cat. I have never known him to bite anyone if something like that happened it would probably kill him. So if anyone knows if Doc Mc Donald is still around let me know or if you know him let him know I'm looking for him. Thanks.

That's it outta me for now. I was coming back from the store earlier I saw this guy in a wheelchair it didn't have a motor or nothing. He was older than me and homeless. I was thinking I hope he didn't want someone to push him because I'm the kinda person that would but really did not want to. Anyway I was trying to stand behind him I was so afraid the guy would ask. See, I am a JERK Just like everyone else. The guy looked back and I felt like a real friggen IDIOT and a JERK. I stepped forward and he looks up at me smiling and says "How are you?" Will I'm not going to tell this guy that I feel like scrap I have anxiety and Diabetics I sit on my fat butt all day and listen to mostly bad snooze but it makes me feel whole in a weird, sick, demented sort of way. "Fine, I answered how are you?" "Just Rockin and Rollin." he says, then took off rolling that chair faster than I could walk. He kinda looked like Joe Walsh but I know he wasn't. He made me forget all about myself though and that is a good thang.
Have a great weekend and Dog willing we will see you on Monday. Later, Roger
