what a shock i had to find that a few people actually read my blog

now that's not right!!

i figured I'd be lost in a plethora of bloggers who had a great deal to say for themselves and this city

i knew when i started this blog that i wouldn't even be a minnow in this large cities pond

and the requisite sharks would be about to swallow up quickly all the mediocre ink

smart sarcastic flamers probably wouldn't spew their venom on me because i really wasn't worth their effort...hahahahahaha

i was counting on that

I'm a poetess really

spent 10 years writing throw away poetry on My Space in the writing and poetry category...i took small pics of the lives i saw around me

I'm gonna stay here for a while..mediocre or not 'cause i want to...not for your amazement or amusement...nor just to be a target of unkind comments..u don't even need to read me

if u choose to ridicule and haze me with epitaphs of sexism...ageism...or sexual orientationism it isn't going to matter

i'm not going me or not...comment or not...'cause that's the way i roll

Ooooh, post a link to your myspace page, I'd like to read your stuff.

I been hinting at people here to post links to their writings, looks like they all too shy!

i'm shy too FISH...i think all poets are...but i'll put some here occasionally if u like

uh oh..."flamer" is now old hat...and old hat is so old hat that i should be whiplashed for even using it...Geesus Cripes i feel old...outdated and fit only for the blogging dust heap

I'm now very unhappy with all the previous people who treated me like i was some literary charmed creature who enriched their lives when every word i wrote that showed up on their monitor

I'm so ashamed...hahahahahahahaha

I'm familiar with "trolls"...however i thought they were just wart covered ornery "little people under the bridge dwellers" that were fignuttens of the Brothers Grimm

and Flamers were just angry young cynics with a demigod complex who had and used for any reason flamethrowers

thx for asking me to contribute FullFlavoredPike

i honestly appreciate that

but here's what you need to understand

i am old...and unfortunately i now realised I'm "out of date" too

my eyes and sensibilities are a mixed bag of the world from the 1950's on

I'm not a maudlin person...and won't be trying to get you to watch PBS's Doo Wop series to make peeps like me to send more money in to them then my Social Security check can bear

yesterday it occurred to me that i should now only act as an audience to the younger generation...and not comment on them at all...good or bad..bad will just be snickered at and good will be due to my age over looked

and i remember how i felt the same way when i was younger

in spite of all this i will try to find my way into the here and now that crosses many generations...i like to think of myself as one who seeks to not become outdated

and i like challenges

I don't think I've heard the word "flamer" in quite a long time. Seemed to be well replaced by "troll" at some point.

+1 for rep'ing some old school 'net lingo.

As far as your 'tude goes: brighten up. Peeps here are nice. I didn't get hazed and my blog is weird and I kind of stalk invisible strangers through by way of their unwanted possessions :)

Post, contribute, we'll like you!
