Bitch on the Blog

Where the sun rarely shines

Do not count your banana skins before you’ve slipped on all of them.




  1. Always the optimist you are…

    • Well, Phil, the Angel, who by happenstance saw this post and your comment on my screen, thinks that his mother is showing considerable forethought whilst she is peeling bananas on the Titanic.

      • In light of your slip, I wonder if now is a good time to ask, “who are you feeling?” Oh wait, that’s another topic altogether…

        But this does beg the philosophical question, if Ursula slips and falls and no one is around to bear witness, does she make any sound?

        I answer yes.

        • Phil, I tell you: This is no joke. I am a fallen woman. And soon I will take any offers coming my way. Which is pretty hard on me since hygiene comes first.

          Dear, dear, dear, dear. What did you say? Who am I feeling? This minute I am trying to locate my (paper) scissors. Searching for that which should be in its allocated place.

          I wish I were a pig, in France, hunting a truffle. Or a sniffer dog at a ferry port.

          By the way, Lorna didn’t show up this morning. So she is still alive – I think.

          Noisily and touchy feely yours,

  2. After slipping, jump up, 😀 at yourself, brush off your behind & wear shoes with lug soles.

  3. Remember…when you slip just pick yourself, look around, smile and come out with my sister’s classic comment: “Performance Art.” and hold out a hat!

  4. Cynthia and David (aka BHB and Magpie), I am not surprised any longer that the two of you get entangled in your emails strifes (Socialist indeed) since you clearly think along the same lines. Only differently.

    First of all: Both of you take things too literal.

    Secondly, and let’s go literal, both your advice is impractical and may land you in A&E (accidents and emergencies): Jumping up after slipping? I’ll try that next time, Cynthia, and leg it straight to the next shoe shop in search of lug soles. And David, what if there is NO audience? Or it’s dark. Or you don’t wear a hat.

    Back to the drawing board, typing this standing up since I can’t sit down,

    • “both of you take things too liberal” (It’s liberally. Can’t help it. I notice when people say adverbs wrongly.)

      • Don’t take the piss, BHB. Trust me: Sometimes the “…ly” has no place. Anyway, I said literal. Not liberal. Neither do I ever enter discussions on politics/religion. I leave that to you, David and the rest of the world. May you all bash your heads in. At your respective funerals I will throw the correct flower. Colour, stench and all.

        AffectionateLY yours,

  5. No, I won’t. I am always ready for a good dose of shadenfreude.

  6. I’m simply amazed that a fourteen word post (counting two words for the contraction) from our hostess Ursula can elicit a veritable avalanche of comments and discussion.
