Lots of other cool people here as well who don't post much. But if you are on my friend's list, then you are fine by me. And you may be fine by me, even if you are not on that list. There is no list for foes. There use to be in the early days. There is an ignore list. But it is not public. Want to know who is on mine? If you are reading this, most likely you are not on the list. Then again, maybe you are. I often wonder who is reading my blog. I have one post with almost 10,000 views. Could it be ten people each reading it 1,000 times? Seems a bit excessive, doesn't it? Are the readers mostly lurkers? If so, hello out there. Thanks for reading. Appreciate it. I really do. Surely the readers aren't just my friends, as we have already seen I don't have too many... just some rain-coated lovers'... . Could they be those ten people reading that one post 1,000 times each? They don't seem like the type. Well, maybe Robby is. Kidding, Robby. We know you have better things to do... like searching through mags for pinups for your apartment walls. Hehe.
I have lots of haters here. Or it seems like I do. Is anonymous ten different people? One person? The same person as one of the people on my ignore list? It is all one big unknown. And really, not important. Having enemies means you are saying something thought provoking. It comes with the territory. As long as you have even a few intelligent friends on your side--the right side--you are doing something right.
Believe it or not, I do know how to act like a sycophant. I could, if I wanted, join a public forum and act sweet, charming, kind, generous. In other words, be a yes woman... and be loved by many. But would I be respected? Admired? Probably not. I hate doormats, so why would I want to be one myself? Nah, I like the free thinkers. Those willing to put their necks on the line, fight for the truth. Sadly these people get labeled trolls. Many are not. Most are not.
Troll la la la la, la la, la la.
Two weeks until Christmas. Let's all try to be jolly. And get along. Yeah, right. Not gonna happen. Forced friendliness is fake and not really a good thing.
If one certain person would get off my ass I would stop using the word fat. I have to work with the tools I have. If someone hits me with a hammer, should I fall to the ground, or should I pull out a mallet and give it to them? It is a dog eat dog world. And a dog eat dog forum as well, so it seems. Step on my toes, and you are going to get stepped on as well.
And that's all I have to say about these things for now.
PS - Go see Gravity if you get a chance. It is the best movie of 2013, so far.
