Bitch on the Blog

Living up to reputation

Filed under: Communication — bitchontheblog @ 19:27

Fucking hell.

Am on my back again.

What has gone wrong with me recently?

Half a century NOTHING, other than love for my son, touches me. Now I am on road to nowhere. Will keep you posted as to my demise; a place where even the ever efficient likes of Jean and Ramana will not be able to provide forwarding address.

Have just cottoned on to genius. Not mine. Though impecunious too. That is my claim to Mr Micawber (and just in case any of you don’t get it I am NOT referring to Dickens.) Will take the two names (of genius) I am referring to to my grave. Am crying as to what arseholes mankind amounts to. There on a silver platter. Genius that is. Need to insert a smiley. Or how about a LOL to  make life into what it’s not? Fancy a spot of brainstorming? Don’t excert yourselves.

My doctor’s note (many months ago) reads: “Patient suicidal. Will NOT act upon impulse on account of her son.” You can’t better diagnosis, can you? Unless you are Conrad whose blog, unfortunately, I revisited in middle of writing this. Once more he deletes me. What a true shit you have turned out to be, Con. You know something, Conrad? I did actually TRUST you. Big time. But like most people you, Conrad,  have never read a fairy tale in your life. So you take everything literal. Take your leverage somewhere else. May it stand you in good stead. Thank your heaven that my son just rang to announce his immediate arrival. I will finish with you once I have cooked son’s meal.

Don’t expect to escape lightly, Conrad. Few of you will. My swan song will be so blue –  feathers flying as you have never seen. Then Bitch on the Blog will close down. Neither do expect your hightened blood pressure making any impression on me. Fuck you, Con. How wrong can I be? Due where it’s due: I was a bad judge of character. Still: Kiss kiss to Lady Con. I like her. If you know what’s good for you, Con, hang onto the woman.




  1. Let me help you with part of your fantasies: Carol (Lady Con) would have kicked you out of the canoe long before I would.

    What you can’t get through your head is that nothing was done to you over there at my blog or in the Consortium. What makes you think we should have invited you to be a member, anyway? You are such a loose cannon, I can’t even trust the civility of your comments, let alone what you would write on various topics and what you would share with the other members. Your attacks are vile and they are launched against those totally innocent of your blood. Your wounds are self-inflicted and it is something you can’t see or come to terms with, yet.

    Of course I deleted your comments. I haven’t kicked you off the blog, I’m simply disallowing your out-of-control nastiness that has been erupting with greater frequency. Some of the things you say are WAY out of line.

  2. As to Lady Con: Do you take me for an idiot? Of course she would have long kicked my arse. It’s what women of my acquaintance do. I don’t. Neither am I a woman.

    Vile. Conrad, dear man, there is nothing vile. Nothing. I am the least vile person you wish to meet. Go back to the photo. Is that the smile of someone vile? Talk to David. Talk to Cynthia. People who have some intuition of what a person is about.

    Anyway, may you all rest in peace. I am done. Son comes home, finds me crying. Asks me pertinent question: Why are you doing this to youself, Mama? Why do you allow people you don’t know, people who don’t know you, to walk all over you? To destroy you? And by the way when is dinner?”

    Conrad,you have got it so wrong. Doesn’t matter. Does not matter. Will take son’s advice. Wish I were switched on.

    Have to attend to oven now lest dinner will turn to cinder.


    One more thing I’d like to say will wait.

  3. Are you a Four on the Enneagram?

    “I like your son’s comment, especially the “what’s for dinner?” I would amend it slightly:

    “Why are you doing this to yourself, Mama? Why do you provoke people to walk all over you? To destroy you? And by the way when is dinner?”

    You do provoke, Ursula. Hey, most of us do at times. If you like the responses you’re getting then go for it. If not, try something else.

    Lest you think I have no compassion, notice I’m nobly refraining from adding my smileys. It’s hard. Very hard.

    • Jean, dinner still not on table. Son pissed off with me that I cry over “nothing”.

      That’s me: Nothing.

      I thank you, Jean, for your time and your compassion. Truth to be known: I am on a hiding to nothing. I am desperate. Don’t even care about spelling or punctuation any longer. The sooner I overlook a car coming round the corner the better. Last sentence shit. Do overlook it. Neither son, or my father would stand for it; neither should you. But holy shit, here on the internet in view of everyone who might look, I am not good. Can’t stop crying. And I will miss your smileys. And yes I do provoke. What is wrong with PROVOKING? With Playing Devil’s Advocat? Any of you, explain: What is wrong with being less than complacent?

      • We all have very small egos. Or is that too big egos. I never understood which it was.
        I mean we put up armor to protect our little egos (or too big egos.) You got provoked & now you can’t stop crying.

        To a 19 year old active boy nothing is as important as dinner.

        The comments are flying in & I haven’t pushed Post Comment yet.

        • Dearest BHB, unfortunately to a 19 year old boy nothing is MORE important than his mother’s equilibrum. Not even food.

          These days with no school gate for me to wait at and him having his own keys his appearance being a little less predictable he will catch me when not so good. And he, the most chilled ever, will go ballistic when I am not the happy Mama he is used to. What do I keep saying about men? They have that cool perspective I so envy them.

      • If you read my comment you will see that I didn’t say provoking is bad. I’m saying don’t complain when people respond in ways you don’t like. You’re not the victim you sometimes make yourself out to be. Other people walking all over you and destroying you? Sorry, can’t resist: 😀

  4. A few posts ago you wanted me to confess to weaknesses, Ursula. Okay, can do. Conrad may be horrified by this, but I am incorrigibly nosy… I can’t help wonder what you tried to write on his blog. I mean the squeamish aren’t apt to come here, are they?

    • Jean, one of the things I like about you: Being tenacious. Will paste what I wrote to Con in a minute.

  5. Yes Ursula, I’m nosy too. We know that the person(s) you wrote about aren’t evil people. So it wouldn’t hurt would it?
    As long as it wasn’t about Jean or me.

    • Don’t know, BHB. About people being evil. One of the number three people in my life, my sister, betrays me. Big time. Life for the last two and a half/three years never been same for my sunny self. Have become virtual recluse in aftermath. Then I latch onto the consortium. Not that I haven’t found the odd pearl amongst you.

      And no, BHB, it can and will never be about you. Neither Jean. Who reminds me of friend who became pathologist. Two years younger than me, taught me all about chess and maths there is to know. Also wrote me letter to effect that Ursula always needs to go to bottom of everything. Even if at my peril.

      • Sisters are often rivals. Maybe most sisters. I haven’t taken a poll. My sister doesn’t want ANY of the excellent pics & videos I send. Nobody else has told me that. She expects me to call. I’ve sent her a lot of love notes (her ego is small or too big) & now she calls me once in awhile.

        • Don’t know, BHB. Are sisters rivals? Not to me. But then I am the eldest. What happened three years ago was so beyond the pale (or is that pail?) even my parents refuse to enter discussion. That’s why I pity parents (like yourself) who have several children; parents of many are rendered helpless/speechless because – by definition – a parent can never take a side. Thus leaving all in the cold.

          • Funny thing is, you’d think that I could have a favorite kid. But I love them all equally. If I tried real hard to pick a favorite, it would be impossible. My boys fought, my grandsons fight ( 3 sets of two in each family). It’s not a matter of picking a side. You just get them separated. What happens is they wrestle, laugh & have fun — until the YOUNGER one gets hurt. Same every time.

            • Yes, BHB. Of course you love them all equally. That’s what mothers do. Particularly you and mine. Fathers’ love is considered to be conditional.

              I am so most definitely a one child mother – I’d kill myself over a Kain and Able.

  6. Here it is and note that it is in reponse to the post, not anyone else’s comment at that point:

    “Conrad, dearest sweetest Heart, have written on the name your mother gave you in my latest as yet to be refined and to be posted offering in the humdrum world of the blob.

    However, do have to also divert attention to the man of great circumference and his little brother of even SMALLER use.

    gaelikaa, and I knew she had it in her, has finally risen to challenge and given me all the airing I so crave. I have said it once – and whilst I hate repeating myself – I say it again: Hats off to gaelikaa. No bull. When the woman puts her metal to the pedal hold onto whatever keeps your hair under control.

    Where was I? On Con’s blog. May I say you were all a bit early today. May I also say that I am NOT offended at Delirious and P’s appointment into orbit. What a masterstroke of yours, GM, it would have been to invite ME to the inflated bosom of the consortium instead of miscontruing Roesti. No offence to either of you two new combers of bottom of barrel. Just remember: Toes will protude and are not to be trodden on. Study rules of conduct first and you’ll do fine.

    And do trust Con. He has a heart; if high bloodpressure. His blog is the one your comments will get fired off to be re-instated as a gesture of good will some time later. Ramana to be ignored at all times. If you don’t he will recruit his brother to do the dirty.If you need ropes turn to gaelikaa, BHB, Red Top or – last resort – myself. I have plenty [rope that is] to hang yourselves with.

    In the meantime don’t neglect to be NICE.


    PS Con, sorry, as usual got carried away on the sinking ship of my self importance: Can only confirm that my psyche is not on schedule.

    Usual hugs and kisses – to Lady Con. Yours.”

  7. Now, I am uncertain why anyone thinks it is OK to great people with “No offence to either of you two new combers of the bottom of barrel.” I don’t particularly like personal attacks over at my blog. After David mentioned it privately, I also removed Ramana’s “You’re so vain” by Carly Simon, even though it was me who privately mentioned it first.

    Comment by Conrad — March 18, 2011 @ 23:09 | Reply

    • I love Carly Simon singing ‘Your’e so Vain’. I’m vain. What’s wrong with that? At least I’m admitting it.

  8. I would delete comments that attacked other people on my blog. If/when it’s aimed at me I would be a bit concerned that it made the tone of my site feel unfriendly but, depending on how hateful it seemed, answer the topic and ignore the personal attack.

    If I did delete a comment I would write to the author and ask him/her to rephrase it without the animosity. Assuming there was some point besides the vitriol. Sometimes it’s hard to tell.

  9. PS Thanks for showing us the comment. I’m a bit confused. It said Conrad was the topic of a post and that Ursula is not offended that she wasn’t invited to be a part of the LBC and two new people were. Is that correct? I assume you were being facetious there, Ursula? Please help me unravel the words…and the real meaning behind them. It’s possible that some of us just have slow minds.

  10. I was not the topic of a post. We do have two new members, referred to as combers of the bottom of barrel, an attack on Ramana at two points, an attack on GM and a general portrayal of the Consortium unflattering at best for two new members’ introduction.

    You’re approach is totally right, the best approach is to fairly much ignore and gently deal with personal attacks if there is any virtue to them at all and to disallow attacks on other commenters on the blog. Then encourage commentary with less vitriol. With U hovering, though, the response over here at her blog was PRETTY QUICK and, as usual, rather extreme. I had one of those business days that prevented my involvement for a bit – other than deleting the comment.

    U and I have history, though. I tried your approach the first round when she was eventually banned from the blog. My experience is that once she launches, rather than rephrase she defends and repeats. Perhaps that has changed now, though.

  11. Jean, are you confused because I was the one who put the comment from my blog over here? I copied and pasted it in.

    Comment by Conrad — March 19, 2011 @ 00:56 | Reply

    • No, I was thanking you because I knew you showed us the comment. I was confused because I don’t understand what Ursula thinks she’s trying to achieve.

      My comment above should have been more clear. Try again:

      PS Thanks, Conrad, for showing us the comment.

      Ursula, I’m confused. what was the point of your comment on Conrad’s blog? As I recall you once said you try to stir people to think rather than indulge in personal attacks. Do you really think your comment did that?
