we'll be right back with the dna results

"That baby you been feedin' all these years? He ain't even yer kid!"

i've been trapped in a jerry springer episode for the past two days, but i'm changing the channel. i don't know if the "debate" is still going on. maybe it's fizzled out. these things tend to do that. my blog had twice the hits yesterday. i'll bet the site meters were spinning at the places actually blogging about the controversy.


joe konrath and kelly parra both had an excellent posts yesterday on responsible blogging. robert gregory browne also had an excellent post on his blog. you should check them out.




in the blog world, words are forever. even if someone decides to remove an entire thread along with comments, it can still show up if googled. i'm not saying that was done, i'm pointing out how words remain on the internet even though they are no longer on your blog. when you blog, think etched in stone. think possibly backed up in a file on somebody's external drive.
you never know who's watching and reading.

You took a lot of undeserved flack, but it also sounds like there are some good people around to watch your back.

What did I miss?

Bailey Stewart said...

Don't stop in a couple of days and then miss something. I hope everything's better now. And yeah, we've got your back.

patrick, you are so right about people having my back. i would have jumped off the washington bridge otherwise.


tribe: nothin'. or you could read hundreds of comments about the ITW awards controversy on murderati and lipstick chronicles. but i wouldn't waste my time.

bailey: the weed has helped a lot. ;)

The person who instigated this entire mess should at the very least be made to write 200 times:

"Empty heads like empty barrels make lots of noise!"


D-dirty
N-nasty
A-accusations

So does this mean we get to read about transvestite cousins who've slept with their mother's pool boy's sister and a drug addled, underage, midget hockey team?

'Cuz if it does, I am SOOO there.

anne frasier said...

stephen, yes, and since all the characters are men, i'm working on a killer plot where a guy gives birth.

Patrick Shawn Bagley said...

Stephen, you'd better stop making fun of my family.

Sandra Ruttan said...

Words of wisdom, Anne. I'm going out for more duct tape right now.

anne frasier said...

patrick, that's so sad. i'm sorry to hear about your family. ;)

sandra, i bought the 3-pack, super-sticky.


this is a little off-topic but somehow seems appropriate.

oh. my. god. That was the funniest thing I've seen since hope is emo. Goes to show that the love of trauma/drama can keep a tired tv format going and going and going...
