what am i talking about? is it the several wonderful readers/commenters that i have acquired in the recent past (mainly by begging, pleading, being pathetic on other people's blogs and, in one case, by offering food porn)? well, that is a part of it (readers! who comment! who are strangers to me!), but, my little poultries, the true test of greatness is having hate mail and i have just gotten some. well, ok, maybe hate is a little strong. maybe it is dislike mail. or merely insult mail. or heck, a backhanded compliment mail.
the long and the short of it is that someone has been sucked into the vortex of my blather, read it for an hour, and then returned to call me stupid and tell me to shut up. i am all a-titter, i can hardly express it.
in other news, it is snowing. it is snowing so much that there is snow all over the things that are customarily covered by rain in these here parts. all the traditionally wet bits are now snowy and all the coloured bits are now white. this apparently rarely happens on vancouver island and from what i hear the national guard, the blue berets, the army and the slovakian male gymnastics team have all been called in to help. it feels good to be excited by a snow day, as opposed to having 7 consecutive months of them.
will you kick me if i tell you life is good?
