Bitch on the Blog

Whatever you do: Do not trespass – on certain blogs. Because their owners will get rattled. Not much beyond a hiss. Whimper – and you’ll be fine.

Be careful whose Snake Bite concoction you follow. Dentists are expensive.

Tip of the day, Con and consorts: Don’t make a Boa Constrictor out of a rattle.

Kiss kiss




  1. I do wish people would not talk about snakes late at night! I get night mares about them…… 😉

    • Try and dream about vermin, Magpie. And I have. You don’t want to know what Jung’s dream interpretation has to say on that one.

      I am, and it’s annoying if instructive, a serial dreamer. A parallel life. Eventually reflected in the one I appear to live in REAL life. Pinch me.

      • I was a serial dreamer too. After all the kids left home & it was horribly quiet, I kept dreaming of entering empty houses, no furniture, nobody. I wasn’t good at analyzing dreams. I tried to figure WHY was I dreaming of empty houses. Duh!

  2. I’m a bit confused. Clearly Conrad thought you and I were trespassing on his blog. Are you saying he’s trespassed on yours? I thought you wanted him to come.

    • Jean, exactly: We, most certainly I, were trespassing on Conrad’s blog. As you know: On my blog there ae no trespassing laws. Anything goes. Even Conrad.

      My ‘Antidote’ was inspired by his own blog’s “Risk” and the sign on rattlesnakes. It was too good an opportunity to miss, on both wordplay and metaphor.

  3. Yes, being a trespasser myself, I loved the metaphor and take my hat off to you for thinking of it. In my case he didn’t bite that hard, but I am respecting his sensibilities. He wants commenters to fit into his group and that’s a valid choice. He explained it very well.

    Here’s my antidote for people who bite, you may have seen it before.

    • “wants commentors to fit into his group” – oh, Jean, if I were Con I’d cringe and mend my ways this minute.

      Whenever I hear the words “fit”, “group” or “club” my heart sinks. Closed circle. Chinese couldn’t be more foreign to me. What the likes of Conrad and GM do not understand that doors need to kept open. Otherways you become staid and the air becomes stale. A bit of contrariness, devil’s advocate go a long way to keep a ‘group’ and their ‘little grey cells’ stimulated. Who wants to calcify before you had your first brain density test? Conrad is a fine one to talk. He will hurl insult after insult (veiled, naturally, yet so obvious) not reading any nuances coming his way; which incidentally, and I don’t normally pigeon hole people, makes him boorish. His leveraged intelligence: Take that example recently when you went off on a tangent in response to one of his I’ve forgotten now: What has stuck with me that he did not recognize your enthusiasm; didn’t acknowledge that you clearly spent some time thinking about what he said, then writing up your own thoughts even if, possibly, off subject? To me, Conrad is rigidity personnified.

      There is a huge misconception within the group I call “the consortium and hangers-on”: Do they want a mutually self congratulatory admiration society? Do they want a platform to vent their spleens without so much as a question mark over their perception? How much more narcissistic can you get than on your average blog? It’s all me me me me. It isn’t. Life is a dialogue, a shouting market place unless you are stuck in a cul-de-sac not knowing how to reverse. One of the best lessons of my life that you can disagree with people, your bestest friends and family, without taking away one iota of love, respect, anything that person makes you dear to you and you to them.

      But then, as my father says … Since not flattering to the likes of Con & Co I shan’t repeat it here.

      One of the things I like about you, Jean, that you don’t shirk discussion, even if uncomfortable at times, unlike, say, GM, who is truly passive aggressive. I wish Con would get his terminology right before launching in and, if he really has to, aim at the right target.
