Bitch on the Blog

Doesn’t time trickle through your fingers like sand if at the beach, like sugar when baking?

This blog coming up to fifteen months or so. Love the missile of my header’s pen. Never liked the name I gave it. A lot to live up to. Not really my style. Only came up with the blasted “bitch” on two counts: Firstly because I am enamoured with alliteration, secondly because like so many words in my adopted language ‘bitch’ means nothing to me. Seemed apt at the time since I was fashioned by some of you into something I am not.

Neither am I an ugly duckling so will keep swan song short. The tiny community this blog has been addressed to – and in turn whose blogs I have been visiting and commenting on – has been a mixed pleasure. I now have two choices: Either I tell you how it is (from my point of view) good and bad, and there has been a lot of good, or I’ll keep sthumm. Silence being so preferable to most of you, don’t you think?Mustn’t wake sleeping dogs. They rarely bite when compos mentis but they will bark. Unlike kittens which, in their playful manner, scratch and hurt.

Rarely in my life, actually never – come to think of it – do I sever. And then there is the exception to the rule.

BHB would appreciate what I have to say on all of you: Repeat: Good and bad. Mostly good. But as Ramana has drawn our attention to: Life is short.

Bon voyage. Don’t drown.

  1. Don’t Go! I know I’m now a sleeping dog…. But spring may well begin to wake me! So perhaps a hedgehog would be more appropriate.

    As for pleasures: On consideration I think that all Pleasures are mixed blessings….

    And now to keeping shtumm (that is such a lovely word that I haven’t heard for a long time,:Thank you). With your facility for English I would urge you not to keep shtumm….

    If this must be Goodbye then let us say Bon Voyage and Aurevoir.

  3. Don’t go. I love your style (only your own) of writing. I do have to look up shtumm. Uh oh You’ll have to get a better spelling for that. ‘Bitch on the Blog’ is catchy. That’s good. ‘Swan Song’ sounds boring.

    “Rarely in my life, actually never – come to think of it – do I sever. And then there is the exception to the rule.” You are sooo funny. But comments like that are boring. Anywho, we love you!!!

  5. Clarification: “You are sooo funny. But comments like that are boring.” I mean boring to keep saying, “You are sooo funny”.
