glitches and headaches



Well LOL day didn't exactly turn out the way I had expected......... in more ways than one.......

I took my car in to the shop - to be told my brakes were done... finished.. rusted through... and it was lucky I was still "stopping"........... 3 hours later and a whole mess of money later.... I got my car back .  

Now seeing as I had booked the day off work... I had intended on doing some Christmas shopping something I love to do......... but unfortunately after the brake bill... the Christmas shopping didn't look all that enticing....... so after 2 shops and not finding anything in my (now adjusted) budget... I came home with the beginnings of a headache... (stress headache for sure)

I came home to the infamous anonymous comments on The Journey.  I never handle public confrontation well............ thought I had taken care of it when poof the comments were still coming.... the headache got worse....... I tried a number of things to limit the comments on here... couldn't find what I wanted......... the headache was pounding... so I shut the damn blog down.  Seemed the easiest way to handle it.  and went to bed feeling very alone...

Now at 3:00 in the morning - the headache is gone....... and I am a little calmer... I looked again.  I can NOT find a setting that will stop anonymous comments. So to save you folks from having to read them....... I have put up comment moderation.  I know I know what a pain !!!  IF you comment now - you will have to wait to see it appear.. I do apologize ..........but I think this is better than the alternative - shutting off ALL comments (which I did find) and making you email me comments.

Anyway - that was how my LOL day ended - not at all the way I had intended.  The whole day was not the day I had planned. BUT I did learn some interesting things about people in my life........... lessons I probably needed to learn 

Here's to no more public nasties....... and on with The Journey ........... over that speed bump .. around a sharp corner - and veer to the left ....... straight on until morning ..........

I get a kick out of anonymous comments left by ball-less buffoons. It's part of the game.

When I first started blogging they bothered me - a lot. Down the road they made me laugh. You sorta hafta feel sorry for the poor, li'l folk. No courage, no voice. Sad.

I stopped by to say Hi yesterday after lurking for awhile and saw the comment. I've lurked for long enough to recognize a stalker, I didn't even read it after the first few lines, Ignorance not being worth my time. Sorry you had such a bad day yesterday. I enjoy reading your blog very much.

hugs you softly
i got fed up with negative attitude and dam right rudery on the blog i write as well. At least this way you have the final say on what is posted ...and the shadow person will get fed up of posting no show comments.. Keep smiling

I'm so sorry you had another Anon Asshat.
They don't mess with me too much, but I giggle when one decides to show up. =)

Life is far too short to give any of my precious time to haters!

Don't be sad sweet lady, there's plenty of us here that love, respect and admire you.

I don't know why anyone would post something ugly. I love following your life's twists and turns. But to be honest, I often post anonymously for different personal reasons. But from now on, I'll use at least a letter.

I'm sorry someone was mean. It wasn't, nor has it ever been me.

@anonymousK - (small smile) thank you for standing up to be counted.. but you didn't need to worry.. i actually know who the stalker anonymous commenter is/was... so not to worry.

Sounds like an awful day! And the anonymous attacks can seem like just one more blow... I am relieved to see you back here.

hugs,
swan

seriously?? what is WITH people???

I took your link off my blog links cuz I tried to click yesterday and I assumed you'd gone private! Not so, I now see so I will link you back up!!

Someone else commented on my blog and said they've been getting harassing anonymous comments on their blog as well.

Douchebags.
