Bollocks to you...

That was a high quality post so why aren't you commenting on it, you load of meanies. I'm getting more response from a bunch of cyber beings in SL than I'm getting from you lot. Do I care - of course I do - I'm gutted. Bare my soul, write my arse off, and what for exactly? Diddely shit!
Yes that's blogging. The highs and the lows, rolling with the punches, taking the good with the bad, yah yah yah...
love you all
Goodnight.

  1. My dear sweet frazzled and angry Tommy,

    My condolences on the dearth of comments your blog has receieved. You know I'm always here for you. You know I'll always comment.

    However, it appears that my comments are not good enough for you. ::slaps hand across forehead backwards in dramatic Victorian fashion:: I am wounded.

    I guess I'm just not woman enough for you, my wild Brit.

    Alas. (does anyone use that word anymore?)

    Hugs and kisses,

    Your American Stalker

  2. Hello Tommy dear. I haven't commented on your blog for going on five hours and the guilt of it all just came crashing down upon me.

    So, here I am again. I could give you a run down of my evening, but I don't think you'd be interested in hearing how I spent a couple of hours reading and hilighting criminal investigation papers, finding out things that are fairly gruesome...and wondering if I should be writing about this after all. :sigh:

    Decisions decisions.

    Oh, and I'm having a friend over for lunch tomorrow. Should I make a nice salad with some shrimp? Or perhaps I should make that spinach quiche that we love so much.

    Life is all about decisions, innit?

    It's getting late here so I should be getting to bed. :::smooch::

  3. Pam, I think we should all hire a 747 and fill it with Tom's friends (OK, most of them would be imaginary), and fly down to cheer him up.

  4. Yeah, but the quality of the post isn't always reflected by the number of comments. I often get a the most comments for really throwaway posts.

    Actually, I've had a bit of a downturn in comments recently but I don't mind because all those people who just have to leave really inane comments on every fucking blog they look at just for the sake of it have gone away and I'm left with interesting commenters like yer good self Tom.

    *readers all throw up in unison*

  5. listen Shirty, some of us were in there (SL) seeing if what you found was true, wholly researching the experience, in order to report back fully as befits “a high quality post”.. However these things Take Time, especially if you don’t know what the fuck you’re doing. I have now completed my investigations but because you have been so shouty I’m disinclined to tell you what I think even though such an eminent post demands a comment. ::Nyah nyah nyah:: (I don’t know what those :: are but Pam puts them in so they must be good)

  6. Pam doesn't always know what she's doing either.

    Look here Tommy, two more comments! Has this cheered you up in the least bit? I certainly hope so.

  7. How can I give a comment to someone who says he's in love with my missus?

    I have my pride, you know.

  8. Poor, insecure Tom, it must be so terribly difficult living with that sadly undamaged ego.

    Does Sarah ever read this?

    I'd love to know what her thoughts are!

  9. Can't have my opening bowler/batsman in a sulk. Please treat this is a comment.

    Actually, I did read the last post too, but generally only comment if I have something to add. Your post said it all, surely?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh, and was it you in the early days of the club who asked about league tables, and details of the opposition, so that you could plan ahead ?(it was either you or Richard).

    I've now done a table, but has anyone thanked me for hours of work with pen, paper and coin, not to mention spreadsheet?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Now I am in a bad mood. My old friend Dave has just used the phrase "plan ahead". And he doesn't even work in an office. No excuse.
    It'll be pre-plan, pre-budget, future plans, reverting back before we know where we are.
    And what kind of example is that to set to our American visitors?
    I'm off to play with my synergies.

  12. It was a bit tricky to know what you were on about. So Second Life is a virtual, joinable, on-line world - you didn't make it that clear. At first I thought you were Astral planing and thats a private journey. Googling helped me understand.
    Anyway - Pity Party Host - you get way more comments than most bloggers.
    This is in jest in case I too am not being clear.
    Namaste Horseman!

  13. i was going to comment on your acid trip post but couldn't from work (and you should be grateful as my bad-acid-trip story goes on for years.

    doesn't mean i don't read you tho. i do. so there.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thank you all for being so generous - I am so sorry I got a bit cross. It's your fault though, you bastards!

    Pammy, I love you, and you need not worry about me. I do go a bit wonky now and again but in general I'm pretty level-headed. Thank you for your comments - I appreciate them. Your book is a bit near the edge isn't it - I think its a winner but god, is it worth the pain. luv u. X.

    Vicus, thank you for your support in my hour of need. True, I don't have many friends, about two actually, and can you fucking believe it, you're bloody one of them.

    Betty, I'd just better back off, hubby's on the prowl.

    Ziggi, now then, don't you get shirty with me either. Just because you're crap on the computer is no reson to take it out on me. If you do get on to SL let me know and I'll run the other way, no seriously, look me up.

    Geoff, welcome to my blog. And I'm so sorry I fell for Betty. It's a lifelong problem I have - I just can't resist girls with attitude - I just can't help it. But truthfully, I mean I love Betty the Blogger so fear not - anyway rest assured, if she met me she'd run a mile.

    Ruthsbonkers, you're back. I've missed you and our scientific discussions. Where have you been? And yes, Sarah reads my blog and she knows all about Pammy too! And as for my undamaged ego, oh my god, if only you knew the inner turmoil I go through etc etc...

    Dave, I'm sorry, I've been too busy even to check the scores, letalone concentrate on my batting - I've got two lives on the go now you know, I've got a wife in the real world, I've got Pammy in Blogland, and I've got, no, I can't tell you what I've got going on in Second Life - it would put you right off your batting.

    CherryR, it's true - I have two lives now. Namaste you beautiful knitter.

  15. Surly, Thank you. I love your blog and read it regularly. I know I shouldn't have thrown a benny but fuck it, I did, so that's that. Bad acid trips - dangerous drug that LSD.

  16. Hey Tommy, I'm glad you have calmed down from the fit you threw. "Quality blogs?" What are those? I loved the SL story, I'm not commenting much lately b/c I'm checking CNN for any news on the middle east. Oh, by the way, Wolf said to tell you he is coming to Miami to move in with me...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Carmy, before you agree to let Wolf move in with you, please let me know. He is not the easiest. I introduced him to a friend yesterday and he completely freaked her out. I spent the next hour apologising for his behaviour.

  18. I couldn't find any shoe shops there

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ziggi, shoes there are aplenty. Most of the girls are obsessed with dressing up and footwear is 'big'.

    ReplyDelete
  20. what else is there???
    handbags I suppose - didn't see any of them either.
    I met some very strange and disturbing individuals and I have obviously led an extremely sheltered life thus far. What I could understand, and it wasn't great deal, I don't frankly believe or I don't have the anatomy (or inclination) for. I might go for a fur fetish tho' mmmmmmmm (you're not a unicorn in there are you? he was so RUDE & NAUGHTY! but interesting. . .)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ziggi, there are some total fucking nutters in there, so it's a bit like real life in that way. I guess its a bit more out in the open there because people aren't quite so inhibited. I'm growing to like the place, but I do steer clear of the extremes. I had a right laugh last night. I was with these guys and we were all smoking dope (pretend of course) and one of them got caught up in a huge ufo and couldn't get disentangled. It was absolutely side-splittingly funny and so surreal it was almost like we really were stoned. Once you start to make a few friends it definitely gets to be more fun.
    I have to say I'm not tempted by furry sex myself, but who knows what's coming next.

  22. Well you've bared your soul, now bare your arse. G'won. A nekkid pic should bring in the comments.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I refer to your post of 9/10/05 (or 10/9 for our US cousins who can't put it the right way round)
    where you promised to publish a photo of yourself doing something strange but true - where is it?

    ReplyDelete
  24. mj, I fear it may have the reverse effect, especially for my more sensitive male readers - might get Tazzy and Piggy over here though.

  25. Tommy, you're still a gem in my mind.

    Yes, my book is on the edge. It's taken a toll on me. A huge toll. However, I'm pressing on.

    Hon, I can't find your email addy. Send me one and we talk about what you wanted to talk about.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is it safe now?

    hi Tom. still feeling a bit crabby?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Kyah, just a bit. I'm off to my son's wedding this weekend which hopefully will be fun. I'll be fine when I get back.
    Pammy, hoping you got my email.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I got your email sweetie. I sent you one in return.

    Oh and happy nuptials!

    ReplyDelete
  29. To be honest, I didn't have a clue what you were on about, or just on for that matter, and were best left alone to work it out. I did read it. If you get some stats going you can see everyone who comes in for a laugh. That's quite reassuring.
