Be Careful What You Ask For...

Wow.

Well, I can't say I didn't ask for it.

I asked for feedback on this blog and boy howdy did I get it.

I'll never cease to be surprised by people's capacity for cruelty. I KNOW that people can be mean and petty, so WHY does it always surprise me? Note to "anonymous": if your intention was to be hurtful, you can give yourself a big high-five because you succeeded.

Be more constructive with your feedback.
Because I rap about reality.
Like me and my grandma having a cup of tea?

I never claimed to be cool, and my own stupidity & naivete are pretty much a given - though I I know I can write. I guess my topics have been pretty lame, though.

Ugh! I've had enough of my pity party. It's been pointed out to me that this blog is lame. Without evidence to the contrary, I can't argue. I'm not cool enough to pretend that I'm not hurt, but I'll NEVER f*cking doubt my writing ability. Not ever.

Oh well. Got a book to write. Signing off.

EEE, I told you I am reading this. There are others, I am sure, not leaving comments. If you wish to get constructive comments, perhaps ask questions at the end of your, well story, for lack of a better word. Really snapshots of your life.

I had a thought. I need to get off this computer, but I'm going to just tap this out right now. I love, love, love your Dear Abby Letters. What do you think about putting the Dear Abby letters in a thing you have to click on -- on the side with the current one just showing. Organize your daily stuff with the current one showing and can you have the comment thread showing? Just thinking how to get people to share what they are thinking.

Okay. Done. Tired. Long day. Geesh. What a day on Topix. I actually got a lot done at work too. How did I do that? I swore that I wasn't going on Topix today too. Funny. I give up. They probably put something on the keyboard to hook us like Starbucks has something in their stuff to hook us.

Imaginery friend,

Hi EEE,

I just read your blog about the nasty postings. What is with people anyway. I really enjoyed reading about your mom. Wish mine were as wonderful as yours. She isn't. Sigh...

After reading May 20th blog, were you just fed up with the posters on Topix today and that is why you weren't on the board? Who is that Well person anyway?
