People Are Strange

Well, isn't that WEIRD! My post on trolls brought out the first trolls I've ever had on my blog!

That's so WEIRD!

I know that I really, really, really promised that I'd be back with my antidote today, but it's not done yet.

I've been busy dealing with real life in the last 24 hours. What a refreshing concept!

For those of you who care to, please send some prayers/good-vibes/whatever you believe in -- to Phydeaux -- who is having a kitty-wandering-off experience. I've experienced this, and it sucks. I'm sending you big hugs, Phydeaux!

For those of you who have been watching, or were involved with, the One True Thread over at Shakespeare's Sister (I will not link to it here -- it's kind of like He Who Must Not Be Named, I think) -- I imagine that you are, like me, simply recovering. My best advice is: Lots of nice, hot baths (unless you are sweltering in hotter climes -- in which case, lots of nice, cold drinks and cold compresses) -- a thorough "brain rinse" (read something by Robert Frost, watch an episode of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, or chant something something like "People are really good at heart") -- and a brisk walk outside.

I must admit that the finale of that debacle left me feeling simply sad, sad, sad for the people who were posting the dreck at the end. What a lonely and desperate life they must be leading. I'm sad about that, to this moment.

I want to thank each and every one of you who have commented here on my little tiny blog. And I am experiencing great gratitude that I "know" you, if only in the tiniest way, through your words.

And to Namechanged -- well, I've been wrong before, so I'm not too worried. Here's to your oncoming daughter!

Callie showed back up a few minutes ago - woke me up squalling to get back in... now she's squalling to get back out.

A monster has been created.

Aww, I'm always glad to gear of kitty returns. :)

And lovely PD: I'm only halfway through the Thread that Must Not Be Named, at this point, but I just got to the part where you're asking for a medal, and given that you have given me Nifty Honorary Dyke Swag in the past, I figured it was only fair to commend your Troll Sentry activities with a medal from the Lizard Realm--

So, in honor of your intellectual integrity and intestinal fortitude, I present to you the Lizard's Tail Medal of Honor. Wear it with pride. :D

*blinking away the tears . . . nah -- let them flow*

I am TRULY honored, Lizard.

HE ONLY THING WORSE THAN A TROLL, IS PEOPLE WHO ENGINEER LITTLE SCANDALS ON THEIR BLOGS RATHER THAN RESPONDING TO FAIR COMMENT WITH INTELLECT; ATTEMPTING TO INCREASE READERSHIP, THEY LABEL OTHERS AS TROLLS....
IT AIN'T ME ,BABE, IT AIN'T ME YOUR LOOKIN' FOR.....
