oh my.

Today marked a first for me and my blog: we received a hate-comment. I have now deleted the comment and the post that it referenced, but in case Mr./Ms. Anonymous is still reading, I just wanted to say something.

It's a little sad that you take the time out of your day to go on someone's blog (who, apparently, you don't even know) and say crude things about them. For my readers, I'll give some snippets: "You are an imbecile"and apparently this is "your pitiful excuse for a writing career." "I suggest looking both ways before you cross Mass. Ave, you may get knocked over by one of those oil-wasting machines to which you are so obviously superior. "

Ok, first off, I'm not an imbecile. I'm special. Mr. Rogers said so. Second, I've never claimed that I'm a writer. It's not what I currently do for a living and it's not what I'd like to do for a living. Sure, I like to write, but I don't make a habit out of it and I'd frankly feel weird making money off of words that I put on a page. The term "writing career" is lost on me. Third, I'm lucky I don't cross Mass. Ave. all that often. Wisconsin would be another story- that's a real threat. And finally, yes, I am superior to oil-wasting machines. The human body is designed to function off of renewable resources (water, glucose, etc.) and creates minimal waste. I also have a brain and opposable thumbs and can reason. So there.

This blog is for fun. If you take offense to any post I make, feel free to comment! I love a good sparring match as much as any other DC resident. But please, let's not make personal attacks on one another. This is just a place for me to vent and share my opinions as much as any other blog and perhaps it shouldn't be taken quite so seriously. Can't we all just get along?

Blog hate means you've "arrived." Better that you elicit passionate responses (albeit negative) than indifferent ones, I say.

Thanks, lexi!

And, no, a comment from johanna is the definition of "arrived." :)

Aw babe. Reading your blog is occasionally the highlight of my day. I would like I to think I know most things about you (you know, living with you and all) but I always learn something new and interesting from this blog. You write like you talk, which is my favorite kind to read. It is funny and fresh and well done.

Screw the haters, they don't deserve to read you anyway.
