It is official…

…M3 is definitely not a porn site. Whew! I am so glad to know that.

Take your comments and go.

Josh writes:

I dont know what it is about this blog that turns me off so a lot, but you just dont appear to get me excited.”

And I am so glad for it, too. He prattled on about how I have no idea there are other opinions than mine (like they count 😉 ), how my style is annoying and I have a complete lack of content. Should I find it ironic his comment was about Will You Poke Me? How much more ironic is it I actual published his insipid, ignorant, irrelevant, inappropos opinion?

Well, Josh, no parking. Get moving.

Blame It On Television

In a scathing email from a woman in Iowa, who was outraged at Tips for Keeping Your Child Unplugged, I learned the following:

Taking me to school with my education shoes.

  • There ain’t nothing wrong with TV.
  • TV is good for education shoes.
  • If there isnt nothing to do cause it snowed what else you going to do but TV?

Wow! That is some powerful imagination. I can only think of 8,916 things I would rather do than “TV”…including NOT emailing some random blogger about education shoes. I wonder if I can buy education shoes online or if I need to have them fitted. Am I smart enough for education shoes?

Death of an Industry

In a Facebook message from a woman in Spain, I found out about international literacy. Commenting on Little Hemingway, she would inform me “nobody writes any more”. How ironic is it she wrote this to me?

Mr. DeMille, I am ready for my close-up.

She went on to explain (in a 500-word single paragraph):

writing is just going to go out of style. Video is where the big money is. Havent you seen youtube?” 

I sent her back the sweetest little email you ever did want to read:

Why no, I had not seen this YouTube until now. Thank you so much for the link! I found this great footage of you there! That is you, isn’t it? http://goo.ey/5ExXx”

The Winner Is…

In an email nearly as long as the post My Answer, a man from Montana gave me his personal feelings about my answer paragraph-by-paragraph, headings included, highlights below:

Answered that one...and that one...

  • Your timing is all wrong.
  • Do you have that DID or are you just a dodging a warrant?
  • Children of God are meek and humble. You are the devil.*
  • Are you the CEO of monkey shines?
  • Who did you get to pose with you?
  • Yeah, but it is all bad.
  • Because no one would hire you.
  • Glad you aren’t in the government. There would be a revolution instead of someone just assassinating you.
  • You should be.
  • Other does not even begin to describe it.

*Just to be fair…I am not the devil. I am his ex-wife.

~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you have had a week free of stupid email…but if not, forward it to me. I bet I can answer it!

    Sniff, I don’t get any crank email. Ok, I got over that quickly.

    I think you have an entire closet filled with education shoes Red. The pointy ones, planted in the right place, would be best for delivering a swift education.

    • I think I have posted that pic on here somewhere…need to look it up, but indeed, it is an effective education tool! Looks like the girls had a grand time at the concert! I need to go comment over there, though….

  2. Amazing the number of illiterates there are out in the backwoods, but you handled them the right way! 🙂

    I could say a few things, however I realize that it would sound like outrageous stereotyping, but the outright buffoonary just makes my fingers itch!!! 🙂

    Thanks for the visit and comment Red! 🙂

    I can’t remember if it was the same music – I suspect if it was Steeleye Span singing Gaudete then the answer has to be YES! 🙂

    I ordered the latest ‘Best Of’ CD set instead which is under £10 and comes on two CD’s instead of the single CD version thinking they had it in stock, but it wasn’t – I guess they just order from the manufacturer when you order a copy from them.

    All I can do is wait and see how many months it takes for Play.com to deliver – they cancelled my Matrix Original Soundtrack CD, then I bought it off the Play.com website via playtrade for less than what I was originally charged! 🙂

    I am happy to report that the heating is working and it is 24’C in my bedroom and 3.1’C outside, so I am feeling comfortable! 🙂

    Love and hugs!

    • Oh, now, if you cannot engage in a little stereotyping amongst friends, where can you? Honestly, Pren! *giggles*

    • Great to see you, Les! Glad you liked it. The influx of hate mail is A.S.T.O.U.N.D.I.N.G. *giggles*

  5. LoL!!! Yeah it’s amazing how everything happens when you pick up the phone!!! 🙂

    Doctor Jiva telling me off for going to the Hospital was better than the receptionist losing her job – hopefully she’ll learn from the experience.

    If she does it again though… 🙁

    I’ve had worse off my sperm donor – these days it’s just water off a duck’s back – besides I got a chance to kiss a pretty young lady so that healed any hurt! LoL!!!

    Love and hugs!

    • Such a lady killer! Hopefully, receptionist got to hear the admonishment (or you told her of it!).

  7. Education Shoes? I suspect they are my beautiful red deer skin cowboy boots – they can educationally two step and educationally swift kick. I know this for a fact having done both in them on numerous occasions.

    Why is the only stinking spam and hate mail I get is on my political blogs?

    Reply
    • Well, you KNOW educational shows are always red! I suppose your politics are the only thing that aggravates your audience. Fortunately, there is very little in the way of politics here. But that is certainly a two-edged sword. I am guessing my content is hitting a little closer to home than politics. Whodathunk politics would be a safer subject?

    I saw the education shoes on sale at walmart they were 50% off. I wonder what that meant? Ceo of monkey shines? I used to work there, and I never saw you. Now I work for elephants r us, yep I work for peanuts…can’t believe I typed that! People certainly are silly. What else can you do if it snows? Take the time to learn how to read and write. Your kids can teach you if they don’t have their faces glued to the tv. To the first guy… yep you were looking for a porn site cause it snowed and mom can’t find anything better for you to do, sorry to disappoint you. This stuff is funny!!! Keep at it RED

    • I see no end in sight for the stupid email. I am beginning to wonder if people are reading Friday Follies and sending in email to see if they make the cut! ROFL! Red.

  9. Yes, in the world of blogging there are certainly a lot of drab peeps and here are just a small selection of them, the last one ‘The Man from Montana’ must be one of the most boring bloggers in the universe not to realise how wicked your Space is, but hey someone has to win that accolade and so…

    Mr. Boring Blogger from Montana,
    YOU are crowned with this Award
    and if you don’t like it, then you know
    where to find me 🙂 lol

    Have a great rest
    of Christmas Red 🙂

    • Would that I could find his blog, Andro, for I would certainly bestow the crown, figuratively and literally. Shameful cretin is content to merely throw stones rather than offer up his wares for inspection. But then again, do not all of the small ones?

      Hoping your Christmas finale was memorable. You and Jen stay warm!
      Red.

      • Yes they always hide behind their monitors
        dishing out all of their pent up ridiculousness
        but apart from attaching the electrodes and
        cranking up the power there is not a lot more
        that can be offered to them, besides they are
        unimportant, and incredibly feeble minded…

        Have a wicked rest of evening Red 🙂 😉

  10. I confess. I’m pretty bummed this isn’t a porn site. Also, I’m still jealous about all the great “crappy” emails you get.

    It’s obvious they can’t get enough of you. They read you enough to find something that offends or pisses them off. Congrats to you for getting under their skin.

    • *Curtsies sweetly* Thank you. I have to admit my inbox is often Pandora’s box. I get more than my fair share of praise email. Those, I turn into new posts and awards. The flood of iggie mail is just outright fun. At the end of the day, regardless of how much they protest, something did hit home and get them thinking. In and of itself, it is a pretty great endorsement.

      And maybe I should start taking applications for a porn site. Apparently, someone thinks I would be good at it 😉
