There are nice ways to say things and then there are not so nice. I try to start a little friendly conversation on a social network, asking some questions that I really wanted answers to and got some good old snark in the process.

I’ve learned my lesson:

Don’t ask if anyone has a problem with something that you (maybe) think you have a problem with. We aren’t even talking politics. Or the economy. It was a twitter or twat issue as we like to call it in our neck of the woods. I ask one little “Does this seem weird to you” and I got a whole bunch of “why would you feel that way’s or “I am at a loss as to why you would feel that way”.

Not looking for you to psychoanalyze me, just give me a “no” and move on. It’s twatting, not a $700 zillion bailout

Some people were very “I wouldn’t worry…” or “oh, I can see, but I’m sure it’s fine”… that’s nice… You must have been weened properly as a baby.


So from now on, topics I’m bringing up

What’s your favorite pet?

Oh, crap, am I going to piss off PETA if someone says Pit Bull? Not that there’s anything wrong with Pit Bulls. I have a Schnauzer. And 2 cats, one from a rescue group. The other was feral. Oh, crap, that’s another sore subject.

What’s your favorite color in the rainbow?

Oh, crap, if I say purple, am I gay? or anti-gay? or can’t I talk about rainbows at all? I like gay people. I know and respect many. I think I may have Clay’s next baby…crap, my tubes are tied.

What’s your favorite vacation spot?

No, not necessarily foreign, I love America. I love foreigners too. And the band Foreigner. I have all their albums…no I love Journey and Styx too…CRAP!

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?

No, I’m not saying “breast”…it’s not happening. You can snark on me all you want. At least I didn’t say “boob”…”breast” is so much nicer. Not that I’m into those…but if I were it’d be ok…you know… crap…

I am now the blogger and twitterer of puppies and rainbows…

Hello Kitty, where are you? So glad you are back!!

    Voting a big fat “no” for your transition to puppies and rainbows. Don’t think you could really do it, anyway. *smirk*

    Great post. Say boob as much as you’d like. And perhaps crap some more. I don’t think you had enough craps in there.

    LMAO! Funniest thing ever.

    I’m so lame and haven’t gotten into Twitter. I feel like I am not one of the cool kids.

    I soooo an dying to know what you twittered…

    Also? Love Journey and Foreigner AND Styx.

    Also! Are we really sure Clay Aiken is gay? I think he is just saying that to cover up that he is sleeping with that cougar baby-mama. ;-P

    Georgie was right… I am so glad I went to the bathroom before reading this :). You are hysterical. Love the Hello Kitty activity book :).

    And… you have me sooooo interested! What did you ask? My brain turned to mush about 2 hours into the party, so I can’t remember much. 50 million conversations at once? And I thought I was a decent multi-tasker :). Still, it was fun! And we trended #1 for twitter. Crazy!

    One final thing… if you ever resort to rainbow or puppy dog comments or the like and don’t be your true self at GNO… we will have serious problems! Keep the comments coming. :) I, for one, appreciate them. Maybe we should use this hello kitty pic for our #gno background LOL!

    Now, I get it! Well, come on, this was a group of women. We analyze everything to death, and men fix it. Otherwise, what’s to talk about?

    Oh, yeah. Intimacy and oreos.

    lmoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo omg this has to be one of the funniest blog posts I’ve ever read lolol! I kinda like Hello Kitty though, so don’t hate me. Love your photoshop lolol.

    This happens in no matter what community yo are a part of. I’ve been a member of a populr baby community for 6 years, and we grow close on the birth boards we belong to (all our kids are the same age – we compare notes etc)…and whenever you have a question someone (ok many) will point out the fact that they don’t have that problem (either they’re younger or have a perfect marriage or perfect kid etc) and then answer your question…kind of rub your nose in it.

    Those people probably should have been doing something more important than being snooty lol…I always crack up when I read “I should be homeschooling my kid…” and that’s the tip of the iceberg.

    We love you. But, it happens everywhere, even in my utopian society I’m sure lol. ;)

    Have a fab day. Thanks for the humongous laugh…hope you’re still with me here lol……
