Bitch on the Blog

Sometimes in life you need a crisis. A crisis will focus your mind.

X amount of cotton buds later, the stink of vinegar and thanks to Martyn I am blinded by the sparkle of my keyboard. It is so perfect I can’t think.

Vinegar is a strange substance. Not wine but potent. A few days ago I made a concotion of vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to do battle. Don’t ask. I nearly killed myself. The only reason I didn’t because otherwise the Angel would have gone to prison for killing our landlord (it’s called retribution what with sons being protective of their mother). Anyway, all is under control. So I keep telling myself. And it is.




  1. Another seeming contradiction….”concotion of vinegar and bicarbonate of soda”… I often read rcommendations to use this combination as a cleaner and it seems to me to be counter-intuitive:
    Acid (vinegar) + Base( sodium bicarbonate) = Salt (Sodium acetate ?) so the cleaning powers of the vinegar and the Soda bic would be neutralised….. always assuming that the amounts of acetic acid and Sodium bicarbonate are equivalent else either the alkali or the acid will dominate….. puzzling to me… I use citric acid!

    • Know what you mean. However, sometimes you need two barrels to kill with one stone. Trust me: There is method in madness. The above has nothing whatsoever to do with cleaning. Murder more like it. I shall spare you detail. As it is unsavory. Was unsavory. Yet, and I don’t even know why I am laughing, I have done what many industrial strength chemicals will do at cost. No, not rats. Worse. No shit.

      • As Paul Harvey would have said, (He hasn’t been around for years tho’) ” The Rest of the Story”. I wonder what was it. What were the cotton balls for, who is Martyn, why did you nearly get killed, why would Angel have been murdering your landlord???

        • I’m too needy. You had problems & they got solved or went away. I’m not suppose to have all the details & your account was fascinating.

          • Take people as they come, Cynthia. A bit like literature. Some print will spell it all out. Other (not least short stories) give you an open ending. Make of it what you will. Not always satisfying, I agree.

  2. I think you need to change your email passwords. I doubt if the email that arrived in my inbox actually came from you.

    • I am mortifierd, Grannymar. No, I didn’t send you an email. How can that happen? I don’t understand. But then I am an internet idiot. I doubt there is anything that the NSA doesn’t know about me.

      If you do have my email address maybe you can enlighten me that way. I may be many things but I don’t sneak in through back doors.

      • Grannymar, thanks for your alert. I am livid. Livid. And have written a new post – not that it’ll do any fat load of good – to whoever messes with my name.

  3. The email was address to about eight or ten people – all women and the only name I recognised was Jean. It typically had an attachment and seemed to come via NL (Netherlands). I immediately spammed it and thought it only fair to warn you.

    • I do appreciate you warning me, Grannymar. Funny old world, isn’t it: When I first saw your name pop up in my inbox I was not only surprised but really really pleased.

      I am sure that between you and Elly you have your internet security sewn up where I am rather lax. Too much trust into the good in the world I suppose. It upsets me greatly when I find that my trust is, if not abused, at least misplaced.

      I hope you are well. A pity in many ways that you left the LBC (though, of course, I do understand your reasons): But when a (founding) member of an established groups falls by the wayside it rather changes the dynamics of the group as a whole.

      Best regards,

      • Grannymar, you were the first to inform me. As the day progresses it’s getting crazy. Am flooded with messages and phonecalls from friends and family. What is actually in it for people to compromise someone else? Drawing a blank here.
