The One with Much Ado About Nothing

I am having a hard time lately . I am having a hard time coming up with clever, quippy and inspiring blog posts. And yes- even the snark seems to have gone out of my snarky.



What's that you say? The Swirl Girl in not unfurled? (your welcome, Kat). She has no soapbox upon which to climb? She hasn't been wronged by a fellow driver, customer service clerk, telephone solicitor. Kids are fairly easy going and haven't made her drink endless amounts of alcohol?


*************



I love comments. I read them all and try to respond to all of them. I'm feeling pretty good about my many (okay, you two...stop snickering) regular readers out there. I usually go on to the commentors site (most of which I read on a regular basis - but I LOVE that I do get some new people) and leave my comment love - right back atcha! But some comments are worthy of a little more. You know, linky love... so here goes:



Dear John ,


Thanks for the comments you recently left on Swirl Girls Pearls. As a seasoned blogger ( I have almost 100 posts ) , I rely on the comments from my readers (there they go snickering again) to assure me that my subject matter is touching some 'hot button' ; subjects that 'tap' the readers' core.


So - what was it in the post about giving my 9 year old the 'how the seed get's fertilized ' chat or the one where I retell the story of how this Sally met her Harry led you to believe that I needed this from you...

If I led you to believe I was in the market for assistance in the arena, I am sorry to have misled you, John. You seem like a good guy- but if this is an attempt to meet girls, you need to try harder to 'pick me up'. Hell, I'm cheap - but I'm not easy.

I know times are 'hard', (or in your case, apparantly not) but stalking mommy blogs to sell viagra is like hanging out at AA meetings with a box of donuts and some quaaludes. You're no Allison hawking the Hoover , so back off Jack ! (or Jack off back).

Yours truly sorry,

Swirl Girl

Kat over at Sunshine and Lemonade is having a month of contests and I want to win. 10 weeks of good stuff and give-a-ways to be exact. This week it's an autographed copy of Wicked, the novel. And although it is autographed by the author, Gregory Maguire, and not by Kat herself - I would like to continue my Random Popularity and be chosen at random to win this prize. Kat is so smart and well read, and this is her favorite book of all time...I figure if I read it, maybe some of that smart will rub off on me through blogsmosis.

***********

...and last but not least, after 2 hours of hard time Trick or Treating (with wagon pulled portable bar), putting the Pirate and Cheerleader to bed, and sorting the bags of candy - I have made a decision. Butterfingers, Snickers , and Milky Way Bars are going to be stolen from the aforementioned two chocolateers, and tucked waaay behind the edamame and homemade chicken stock in the freezer. For me. Sssshhhhh.

Cristin said...

This must be the same guy who is clogging up my spam folder with "can't miss Viagra Deals", I think he has a brother in the penis enlargemet business...

Kat said...

thank you so very much for the contest announcement. I LOVE that it comes after the viagra spam :-) And how nice of you to publicize his business with the web site. Just in case any of your mommy readers feel the need to check it out.

I also need to learn how to do screen capture...because your word verification (which you need to give the heave ho) is HILARIOUIS. It's Risem. I think blogger has a sense of humor...

amelia bedelia said...

Fifi Flowers said...

That rat turd John hit me too. Three different posts! And I can't figure out how to delete them, which is weird because I've deleted comments before.

Miss Blondie said...

LMAO!! I haven't been blessed with any emails from John yet...now i'm starting to get insulted!!

I stole all the good candy too!! Too much candy rots their teeth!

Aunt Becky said...

John is a slut! Here I was thinking we were exclusive, and what do I see? WHORING HIMSELF OUT.

Ass.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Mama Wheaton said...

I had to explain to family just now why I was laughing at my computer(mostly because they are watching Band of Brothers - not a funny movie). Thanks for the laugh.

M said...

I'm actually in the market for some good ole Viagra soliciting. I have just the person who could use them. Maybe I should look up ole John for some assistance.

Mama Dawg said...

Hey, John visited my blog, too. I'm still trying to figure out what made him visit me. Sigh.....

HappyHourSue said...

I've seen that dude lurking around lately - and the balls to actually sign up with Blogger!!!!! He should at least have set up an interesting or funny profile.

Ritch in Love said...

I went through this recently and it will probably continue because I'm going to be on the road a lot this month...and the laptop is staying home with my college student hubby.
Perhaps by the time the holidays roll around I'll have fun things to say.
Found you through jill jill. Cute blog!

The Blonde Duck said...

John was hitting me up for Halloween costumes. Maybe they had viagra sewn into them.

Propecia grows hair in about 50% of men after one year and around 66% of men after two years. Overall, around 85% of men do not lose any more hair while using Propecia.
