Another blog argument. I regret everytime this happens. Why the hell can I not shut the fuck up? On days like these, I’m reminded of my friend R who I was so in awe of, and who back in 2005 had passed on the wisdom – “Oh nononono sweetheart, blogging ain’t for cool people. Don’t think that. Cool people don’t blog, they go take a nap if they are angry or lonely.” I now understand.
I’m so tempted to delete this blog, tempted to delete all my profiles and simply move on in life to somewhere where people will write to me just as they’ll speak to my face, and not where I’d be bombarded with links peddling crap to “prove a point”. Oh, I know what it’s called: Real World!
But I’m so not going to back down on this. Not at all. I’ve shared things on this blog, I may never have told anyone. I speak on this blog on things that matter to me. This is a part of my identity. And no grammatically-challenged incoherent link-peddler can take that away. Instead, I have made a decision to pare down my existence on the internet. I have deleted the blogroll, and I unfollowed a couple of people on twitter and blogger, for good reason. My time and peace of mind is too precious to be spent callously. I do know who my friends are, and who I like to read. I also know that there are exactly 3 people out of all the bloggers I’ve interacted with, who can take a disagreement like it should be done.
Oh, and on an unrelated note, I shall go shop now. In high heels. Without a list. And come back and whip me up some pasta. Maybe I’ll follow it up with a strawberry ice cream while watching my favourite soap. Because don’t you fucking know, I’m a stereotypical woman!
ETA on Friday: Folks, thankee much for your concerns et al. I feel compelled to say that now that I’ve had 8 hours of sleep two times over in the last 48 hours (LUXURIOUS, to say the least), I’m not livid anymore and can feel my funny bone growing back. I, therefore, also felt the need to clarify that the person(s) I speak of in this stupendously embarrassing post above and their comments and their links are NOWHERE to be found on this blog. So, stop snooping around.. you’re only getting me more readership than I deserve 😀
