What I Said

This man has elected to be verbally abusive with me because I disagree with his opinion.

Not only can he not just stand down and respect the fact that this is my blog, my opinion and my choice; he feels the need to make things personal.

I suggest that regardless of your view of the USA elections, you may wish to unfollow a person who feels justified in abusing someone who doesn’t allow their own blog to be used as a political grand stand.

Oh! And ETA: Still won’t back off with the name calling. There are children with better manners and self-control.

First words to me, a complete stranger:

“Then she’s an arrogant ignorant as well.”

Nope. Nothing inflammatory there. <heavy irony>

The Girl on the TrainThe Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Excellent psychological suspense. Started off slowly – in a good way – culminated in a wild ride for the last third of the story. I could not put it down. I don’t know if this has been advertised as a book about Narcissist Predatory Disorder of the malignant variety but it is. I started picking up on some early clues and arrived at the end shaken but entertained and thinking this should be required reading for anyone who doesn’t know about or can’t believe just how insidious this behaviour can be. Can’t say more without spoilers. If you’ve been in the protagonist’s shoes – read it. If you don’t think NPD is a serious form of abuse – read it. If you like great a great scary book – read it. This book deserves all the kudos that it’s been receiving.

I’m doing far more reading than writing now, making up for time stolen during “the lost years”. When I remember to, I’ll share from Goodreads. My taste for reading material is as eclectic as my choice of subject matter for writing; fair warning.

~ All of the communication skills ~

If you’re over the age of thirteen and still using “The Silent Treatment” as a method for conveying your thoughts and opinions…

The ONLY thing that you’re communicating is that you’re immature, cowardly and rude.

And. You’re a big fat meany-pants poopy butt head with a head for a butt! :p

So-o-o…

Spammers have reached a whole new low. One would have thought that lower than a snake’s balls in a wagon rut would be the lowest but no.
This AM, I received an email from a friend who died from brain cancer two years ago.
Fuck you Hackers and may the fleas of a 1000 gorillas infest your hairy bits.

While I’m on that…

Ladies, you aren’t going to get anywhere with me if your email subject line begins with “Desperate For..”, “Hungry For…” or “I’ll Keep U Up All Night”.
I really like a woman who can spell if we’re going to get up to some Pat-A-Cake and if you’re desperate… there are apps for that.

Just sayin’…

Yeah, yeah… for someone who’s on sabbatical, I post a lot. Hence, a new category for my lightning strikes here on Eclectic Poet and Eclectic Unconfined. Pointe Shoes Punk Rock And Purl is alive and well.

I am aware that a full inbox, now topping 700, gives my Anxiety the emotional equivalent of hives. I am now also aware that not looking at it is the equivalent of an Epipen shot. The freedom to engage fully in my 3D life is immeasurable in its benefit.

A quick update about the person and the poet and maybe, a concept that could work for you too in many different facets of life. Ciao!
