Awww, I had a widdle troll!
I concluded my last post by saying that I would try to write something more interesting/positive soon, and "shelly" took the time and care to write in and say, "Why start now?"
Bless her little heart. Doesn’t it give you all a warm feeling to know that someone who clearly thinks I’m a boring whiner actually takes the time to read my boring whines so she can inform me of the error of my ways? Where would the internet be without people willing to read things they don’t enjoy that clearly don’t enlighten them in any way? How else would we know that we offend them? Society would grind to a halt!
(In the interests of full disclosure, I do actually read a couple of blogs that irritate me. I’m not talking about anything as concrete as having political conflicts/differences; I just find these people annoying. Don’t worry, they’re not any of you; if I’ve ever left a comment on your blog, it’s not you. Because I have a rule that I am NOT allowed to comment on these [very few] blogs. What would be the point of commenting on opinions that are perfectly valid other than the fact that I don't share them? I read these blogs periodically because I find it useful, sometimes, to be reminded that other people see the world in very different ways than I do, and that they still have friends and supporters and so on. But it’s not like there’s any point telling these people what I think of them. Do any of the rest of you do this? Or am I just a glutton for punishment?)
