‘Sup?

It has come to my attention that some of you may have been distressed by my latest post. Note – this is not a response to any of your comments, so don’t leave any simpering apologies in the comment section thinking you have hurt my feelings. It’s just an e-vibe I got from the Internet. I don’t think there’s anything in my blog that would have given anyone the impression that I’m nice and normal, but my latest missive might have been a little more than you wanted to know. I’m not apologizing for who and what I am. I’m just trying to keep other bloggers from feeling as though they need to hide their blog and change their screen name and e-mail address. You may think I’m joking, but that’s the sort of thing that happens to me all the time. I know it’s not really my fault since I generally behave myself when commenting on other’s sites, but I still feel al little down when I discover I’ve chased yet another person into hiding. This is why I almost never make first contact. (Leesa, ~deb and Joe being notable exceptions.) (But that’s okay because they seem to tolerate me.) (I’m guessing.) (At least no new restraining orders have found their way to my door.)

Anyway, I’m making a one-time offer here. If my presence on your blog bothers you, leave a comment or send me an e-mail telling me you would feel more comfortable if we parted ways. I won’t get mad or cry or hunt you down and kill you or leave a bunch of nasty comments on your blog (I really don’t have time for the last two). I’ll simply remove you from my blogroll and we’ll go our separate ways.

Dude, I can't imagine anyone not wanting you to write to them. You're hilarious. I think you should do a stand up act and then come to my town so I could buy you beer and other adult beverages.

Some people are just looking for things to be upset over and make a big fuss. Whatever. Each to their own. It's better for you if they part ways. I think you're very funny!

if you quit commenting or writing to me, i'll be pissed!

Kira said...

I look forward to your emails. I think I was one of those few you did first contact with, and I was entertained.

Then again, I'm a sick puppy. Of course I was entertained.

Now say Feck Off, baby!

This is just a ploy to get us to tell you how much we love you isn't it?

nobius - by "adult beverages" I'm assuming you don't mean Rohypnol. :p

pbs - I agree. I'm just hoping to part ways more amicably than in the jarring ways it's happened in the past.

annush - do you mean "pissed" in the American sense of angry or the British sense of drunk? Either way...

kira - liar! Fecking liar. You commented first. I remember because I never did discover from whence thou came (note the seamless avoidance of ending a sentence with a preposition in deference to your career). We had no common blogpals or links; you just appeared from nowhere. So, feck off, baby. :)

that girl - really not. I knew this post sounded a bit whiny and solicitous, but I really want to clear away anybody who is not comfortable being in my e-presence.

Liz said...

Just something I’ve picked up from your vibe is you tend to be a bit on the paranoid side. Being a wee paranoid myself, I tend to recognize those tendencies in others :)

Don’t think anyone is really freaked out by you. If they were, something tells me they wouldn’t be stopping by your blog to make comments. For me, email and comment away. You crack me up in your own way.

Oh, in case I don’t get a chance later, happy VD.

Just found ur blog - love it - come visit me we'll do beer :-)

I like your comments...I HATE to be cliche but comments from you are like a box of chocolates...I never know what I'm gonna get! ;)

(I hate the creme ones though...I much prefer caramel...or a few good nuts. Is that too much information? Yeah, probably so.....:)

Kira said...

Grant! You said fecking liar!

*shivers, and goes wet*

Look, how the hell would I get your link? I NEVER email folks unless they email me first...I remember getting your email addy on cards in my box, and I said, who is this fecking jerk and why is he sending me e-cards? Then you said feck a lot, I decided I didn't care, and instead just became aroused. And here I am!

If I posted ON your blog first, that might have happened...if I ended up here through a chain of links or something. But as far as actual email contact? No. I received the ecard and was confused. In fact, you sent a couple before I figured out they were you...haha!

Regardless, I love you in a stalkerish, freaky sort of way that involves boiling pets, hideous laughter, and strange sexual positions.

(See? now is where you regret emailing me...haha!)

I didn't notice anyone being freaked by your latest post.I think we all knew what you were like we've been reading your blog long enough.If we didn't like reading all your rants etc we wouldn't keep coming by and commenting.

Joe said...

I wonder if people are just too easily offended these days. I don't always agree with what other people write, but it's interesting to see other perspectives on life.

So, I guess I'm saying "no" to your e-divorce offer.

Valkyrie said...

Grant is hilarious. :)

Mel said...

Nah mate, you're stuck with us, with me for the long haul. Anyone not into your kinda fun and games can STFU and retire to a hole somewhere - keep 'em comin' cowboy.

Kerry said...

Are you kidding!? Keep it up! I love hearing from you ;)

TTD said...

i dont mind you at all! i love your comments.. i know that your remarks may show a true side of you.. but i'd figure they were for laughs.. which i do, do.. so no, i don't want us to part ways :o)
btw.. happy v-day!

Libélula said...

Dude, not only do I LOVE the little comments you leave on my Blog, I love the fact that you ALWAYS write back...even if it's a stupid "fill this out and pass it to your friends" crap. I don't see how anyone would wanna cut you out...You're a sweetie!

Spider Girl said...

I'd miss you , dearie. You leave the most entertaining comments.
