Bitch on the Blog

Hippos (short for Hypocrisy)

Phil, do not worry if you can’t keep up with the saga. If the voices weren’t so shrieking most people would go to sleep during a Wagner. Not because the story isn’t interesting but because it goes on FOREVER.

Fridays: The Consortium. Today’s subject: The kindness of strangers. Don’t make me laugh.

Some of you the genuine article. You know, people like you and me, good bits, bad bits. Warts. No warts. Enter Con and GM. Holier than thou. Not a blemish.  Mother and Father of the Consortium. Always. Dear god in heaven. The pious and self congratulating. So you, Con, want to be treated like you treat others? Well, how about going back in time? How sweet you were, Con. How sweet. Walking all over me, or at least trying to. Not by reasoning. Not by intelligent exchange of argument. Oh no. By making my son’s mother into a man (repeat question: What’s wrong with being a man?), by doubting my identity, my name, accusing me of lying and worse. Yes, Conrad, the kindness of strangers indeed. I will not let this rest till I have a PUBLIC apology from both you and GM. You once, feebly, offered one (was it in response to a private email of mine when I felt I had overstepped the mark in a public posting of mine – AND apologized to YOU?). What a laugh. Me apologizing to you. Still, there is always kindness, isn’t there? Amends to be made.

You know what stinks to high heaven about you and Grannymar? In unequal measures? You don’t [know]? No, I don’t think you did/do.

Treat others like you want to be treated. Insert derisory snort. Dearest sweetest GM; Is that (to only give a recent example of your kindness) why you let a salesman at your doorstep, you full well knowing that you have no intention to buy from him whatever his wares, waste his time letting him give you his full spiel only to humiliate him? And then proudly blog about your KINDness? Wow. What a wonderful human being you are. Let’s hope you’ll never have to stand out there being treated as you treat others.

As I said yesterday, and I am a little spent on the subject, if the two of you only had the gumption to admit to the vendetta you played out against me we could all rest in peace. For those not in the know but up for a bit of soap opera look no further than my first entry on this blog soon followed by another under the title CCC (Conrad’s Code of Conduct). Yes, Conrad’s Code of Conduct. The kindness of strangers. Indeed. Wonder what you will do with your last twenty pence/cents.

  1. I’m not reading blogs much now because I’m into getting things done. When you write about Con & GM I go to their blogs to see if they are being bad again. Then I pick up on something & write a comment. So you are advertising for them. You don’t want to do that. Grannymar hasn’t read your posts in years. I’m sure. I don’t know what Con does now. Whatever, he has tougher skin than you.

    For me it’s hard to Let Go if I’m bitter about something. Actually since I’m older now, nothing much bothers me. You’re too young Haha. Practice being like Jean who says if you’re Centered you don’t get uptight. She was giving a class on how to do that. We spent the hr. socializing & complaining; not doing our homework so she disbanded the class.

    That doesn’t sound like much fun to me. 😦

    • I’d be getting tired of waiting for that to happen. 😦

  3. Ursula, help me out a little. I beg your indulgence, for I am new to your world and I lack the insight to make a meaningful comment, let alone dole out advice on this matter. I have questions – many questions that might help me better understand it all. Perhaps in my process to understand there may be some information there that might be helpful to you.

    If I were to be your friend, a good friend, one whose thoughts you might find helpful to you, should I stand shoulder to shoulder with you in loyal support of your cause, for it is obvious that the wounds seem rather open and somewhat raw, despite their being almost two years old?

    If I were to be your friend, should I support or should I challenge your comment that it will not end until a public apology is made? What if such an apology occurs? Will it in fact end it in your mind, your heart, if only an apology is made? Is this insistent demand non-negotiable? Are the waters too poisoned for that action to now ameliorate all that has passed?

    If I were to be your friend, should I sit idly by and nod in somewhat awkward agreement, indulging your pain and anger over this issue? Should I instead find a way to acknowledge all this, but challenge you to find a way to unhitch yourself from this snag that does not require an action on the part of someone else? What can you do within your own power to make this end? What can you do that wrests the power away from those who’ve hurt you and put it firmly in your own control? Should I not ask these questions?

    If I were to be your friend, even though I do not know how old you are, should I make the observation that two years of your life is a Wagnerian amount of time, and to ask, would you be prepared to spend the next two years indulging the angst associated with this issue?

    Help me out a little. Help me to understand. Help me to be your friend. I hope you didn’t mind my approach.

    Ah Wagner. I believe it’s been said that when setting up a prize structure consisting of Wagner Opera tickets, the following format be used: First place winner – a selected performance; Second place alternate – two selected performances; Third place runner up – the entire Ring Series… 🙂

  4. Those that annoy me are the ones that, behind one’s back, accuse one of various wrongdoings or negative states of mental health in various discussions on different channels and with others and yet profess undying love. Later, of course, they they appear to”side” with one against those they secretly supported. There lies real hypocrisy.

    • Let us Not take this discussion to other channels as was done in the past.
