Latte

Some people really excel at the whole asshat thing.

So, constantine just posted about more fallout from the end of GT, and she referred to a post made by davidjoates. I made the following comment:

And did you also notice that he referred to himself as a lawyer, not a solictor or barrister? Mayhap I am Britpicking too much, but it does make one wonder...

And this is the comment I got back from someone anonymously:

Fucking someone who is British doesn't make you one you fat fucking cow.

Wow. They sure told me, didn't they?

You know, I did not claim to be an expert, nor would I, and I have had an interest in all things British for much longer than the time I've known Mark, but fine, maybe I shouldn't have stuck my nose in. I just found that rather odd.

But to come back and not only attack me, but to denigrate the relationship I have with the man I love? That is so far from decent behavior that I'm really just stunned. And the scariest thing is, this person either has to be someone who knows me or someone who's bothered to read my LJ for more than just an entry or two, because I checked - my recent public entries don't mention Mark being British.

All I know is this - if it was not davidjoates or one of his posse who posted that comment, and it was someone whom I think of as a friend - this is your fair warning that you had better hope I never find out that it was you, because you will regret it.

Stuff that's been going on for the past week or so

I figure if I don't go ahead and do this, it will never get done. So in lovely bulleted form, here is what's been going on:

  • Bestest friend Y came over and saw new place then we went out to lunch and she gave me my belated birthday gift - two books off my Amazon Wish List! It was so great so see her and the gift was a total surprise.
  • Got to see my mom briefly when she came to see her new grandtwins, so I got Mommy!hugs, and there are really nothing like those, no matter how old you get.
  • Bought plane ticket for trip to England at New Year's, which is exciting and happymaking and a bit nerveracking as it may well be my turn to Meet the Parents.
  • Spent a good portion of the weekend going through boxes and boxes of stuff, throwing out quite a bit and putting other stuff in storage. Still not done, but at least you can see the floor in the "dining room" now.
  • Bought 100% cotton 230-thread count sheets which were on sale, plus had a coupon for 20% off. Sure, it's hardly 600-count Egyptian cotton, but hey, it's a start. Will try them out this weekend.
  • Looking forward to this weekend LIKE WOAH. :>!
  • Welcome new friend morethanbefore, I look forward to getting to know you better. :D
  • Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is my new fave show. I got into it late because of not having a TV to watch until the move, but now I'm totally into it! (see icon) And there is a marathon of eps this Friday! I'm making my brother set the VCR up for it since I've missed so many shows.
  • And finally, I really need to buy more long trousers - it's definitely getting to be fall here.


  • Wasn't that exciting?
