And I Get Mail...

Once in a while, I'll get a comment in to my Blame it on Lorraine section that has nothing to do with advice, and everything to do with someone wanting to get to say something to me through a blind email. BIOL comes to me blank on the return email line; my other contact points reveal who your are, or at least as much as _badger@hotmail.com or something reveals.

Anyway, I occasionally get a note from someone venting, which is fine. I don't publish them in the BIOL part, because I pay Webgod Jeff to format that all pretty-like for you guys, and I'm not wasting his time nor my money on the vents.

Yesterday's was interesting though. Here.
"Dear Lorraine;

Your article on parking in Toronto displays a rather bleak view of life-

-On the other hand it is a familiar view that seems to be the lot of the average white female in North America -namely an over-exaggerated sense of entitlement- spoiled rotten with nothing to do but complain-

Stick in a jab against your husband or partner or whatever you call them these days- and you have the formula for, or at least the reason why so many single women are around these days- just no fun to be around- sorry but that is the view from down below-"


Now, if you follow the link to the column, you'll see that it was a candy piece - just a little bitching about prepaid parking in lots and garages, which is a pain. I had lots of mail agreeing, some helpful advice about a cell phone service some airports provide so you can call when you get in, and the like. It's what I usually get, especially after a piece like that.

Now, keeping that in mind, note the tone of the BIOL note. Whaaa? Apparently, because I hate prepaid parking garages, I'm an average white N.A. female with an over-exaggerated sense of entitlement, and I do nothing but complain. And that's why so many of us are single, because we're no fun to be around.

Buddy, I'm a ball of fun. A veritable basket of good times.

Not quite understanding where this barrage of BS was being flung from (unless I can presume that Australian men find me particularly loathesome), I remembered my blog posting from yesterday. Angry men.

Ah. And there we have it.

To my 'blind' email ranters - say what you want. But have the balls to stand behind what you say. Everyone else does.

A strange coincidence, to be sure. There isn't any link between the two subjects other than the one the anonymouse writer made. (and he IS a mouse, grow a pair will ya?)
Hey, get this, my word verification today is lastman.
Remember MegaMel, mayor of Toronto?

Interesting that this should happen at this time. I just read an article in the Globe, on a group that does "pranks" using completely untraceable skype phone calls. They convince people they are people they're not, and get them to do insane things that have ended up costing somewhere around $1 million in damage and untold embarassment. When people think they're anonymous, their "human-ness" goes out the window. Just like road rage.

I must have missed the sign on your blog that says "You must read this or risk death, dismemberment, or bodily parts being glued to other bodily parts." What I normally do when I don't like a blog, or website... is stop reading it and find ones that I enjoy.

So remember, you (the blogger) are always on trial by me (the bloggee.) It's a burden you must bear (not bare... that would just be wrong.) It's funny that the monniker (sp?) for BIOL is what I feel in my stomach when people like that write anonymously. Oh well. Water off a ducks back, and all that.
