Red Whine: October 2005 Archives

Was it something I had said?!?

Because three days go by and I still don't have a single comment?!? Now, before you think: "How vain of her to think that we should lower ourselves to not only always read what she has to say, but then also take the time and effort to say something about what she has had to say! We have a life, woman! Even if you don't!"

No, please don't be so aggressive, that's not what I'm saying at all! I just mean that I've learned over the year and a half of leisurely blogging that no matter what I say or how often I don't say it (what with upholding my reputation of being the world's laziest blogger and all), there were always, much to my astonishment, a few of you who were obviously so bored at work, that you had something to say about what I had said. Almost without fail. Even though I'm notorious for not replying to what you have to say to me (not because it's not important, understand, it's just that usually I can't think of a sufficient, equally witty comeback!).

You get what I'm sayin'?

As I was saying, I was beginning to think that it must've been something I'd said that made you, my five (yes, FIVE now!) readers quite unhappy. So unhappy, in fact, that you thought it didn't even warrant sending me hate mail!

My fears were immediately eased when I received mail (regular, still not hate! What on earth does a girl have to do around here to receive hate mail?!?) from her and her telling me that my comments police is working overtime (for a change. Usually they are on a very convenient doughnut break when the spammers strike) and so apparently nobody has been able to leave any comments!

Is this true? IS IT? Leave your answer in the comme...

Duh. Never mind. I suppose that was a rhetorical question.

Or, if you really want, you can drop me an e-mail. Even hate mail. Seriously, anything will do!

P.S. And if anyone out there is familiar with the mysterious ways of the MT Blacklist, please, HEEEEELP!

is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
