Once upon a time.......

...there was a woman who did know how to be nice. She only knew how to make this one mad at that one and sit back and laugh while others stewed. Sometimes people caught onto her game and got mad at her, others just left, and others liked the excitement of never knowing who was going to be up or down and waited eagerly for every installment of insanity!

One day one of the ones that left found out: there's more than one of these bat-shit crazy manipulative self-center-of-teh-universe (yes, I know I spelled that wrong!) females and she CRIED! "Why, oh why do they keep popping up in my life" she wailed to the rainy sky. "Avoid them like the plague, I do, [Yoda voice] and yet they pop up like pustules in lower regions", she bemoaned. Because, you see, she made a friend but that dear friend had an adult child. And the adult child was a misbegotten replica, albeit a piss poor copy not capable of even the most rudimentary finesse, of the original woman.

A manipulator with the cheapest skills, obvious and low, using base lies and crude mis-information to twist and tweak, not at all like the original, who's skills were known far and wide and whose probing malfeasance required deep discernment.

And the one-who-left laughed and laughed at the cheap imitation! "You cannot play your silly games with me," she cried! "I have learned from the BEST and I shall smite you like the flea that you are!"

....stay tuned. I am SURE there will be more!

Mass Media is Stupidity Times 1,000

Millions and millions of United States Citizens are completely without a single health care resource, suffering and dying on an hourly basis, and the national media focuses on two individuals who wish to forgo treatment. Somebody slap me.

Real Heros

Real people, making a heroic effort to save other people, they are my heroes!

I am tired of being disgusted with assinine headlines about stupid "stars", arrogant actors written by clueless "reporters" who wouldn't know a good story if it were hand delivered to their door.

Hurray for Captain Richard Phillips, Captain Chelsey Sullenberger III, Co-Pilot Jeff Skiles and all of our military forces who are the real heroes for us all to look up to!

Monetize your Blog!

Guess what it tells me about you when I land on your blog and have to scroll halfway down the page of ads just to see who you are and what you are about?

It tells me you'd rather sell me something than talk to me.

Can you hear the door slam as I leave your blog?

Seriously. Think that tactic over before you do it, because what it says to me is "I want to make a buck offaya and I don't wanna waste a lotta effort doin' it"

See ya.

There's much to much great content on the internet for me to even waste the effort of scrolling down past that crap. You didn't sell me anything and I'll never get to know you. Your loss.

If, OTOH, you write great stuff, post interesting photos and have some interesting ads on the side or bottom of your blog, well, that might interest me ... because now I know you and I know if we have something in common.

What do the ads on your blog say about you?

OMG - I just *don't get* Twitter! I am on it, and I use it to keep up with: my daughter, a few quilters friends, a handful of bloggers that I like. Stuff that makes me either think or smile. Both is a bonus!

OTOH, I get messages almost hourly that some bozo "hoo cant spel" and types stuff like "i no yur biz" or "teh cat just puked" have started following me. Eh??? Why?

Oops, I found out that "you're supposed to follow someone if they follow you ..." NOT HAPPENING.

I cannot force myself to read that misspelled drivel and I have *no* intention of following an idiot just because they follow me. What the hell is that all about anyway? I just don't get it.

Timing is Everything

Why do Girl Scout cookies go on sale right when I start noticing the thunder thighs I've grown over the winter?

Holier than thou - not a nice attitude

Here's what a quilt designer and book author had to say about my quilting video blog:
"Since the blog owner does say whose video it is, it's okay, but there is no "About Us" page to say whose blog it is. It also contains links with logos on the sidebar, and I'm wondering it these companies know their logos are being used in this way. Not really great blogging form. M***** P*****"
She was answering a netiquette question about posting a video without stating that it was "used with permission".

She's got some nerve criticizing my blog when she joins Yahoo groups just to promote her book - something I've seen her do. Second, there are only two pages on the blog - the first page with the videos and a second page with some tips, which has my name, email address and photo! Third, the logos are direct links to the blogs or websites that the logos came from - something she could easily have seen if she'd just looked!

I am sure she's shocked that other quilting companies would allow their logos on my blog (out of friendship and kindness) because she doesn't understand the concept of sharing and caring.

Most designers are nice - she's a total jerk.

Women. Bloggers. It's bound to happen sooner or later. I don't know if it's a menopause meltdown or just plain old self centeredness, but "As The Blog Turns", in full barfing, self pitying, chest beating, "who are my real friends" crybabying keyboard shitfest has begun on a blog I used to read.

I don't accept the invitation to that princess pity party. Thanking GOD, Hewlett Packard and Microsoft for the DELETE key. Delete from blog ring, delete from Facebook. Can someone email me the delete from brain cells link?
