Whenever a fashion blogger quits, changes URLs or seeks therapy and psychopharmaceuticals due to negative comments on her blog, I think of this lovely, civilized post from Gala Darling.
I agree with everything Gala says, though I would have said it with a lot more cursing.* Anyway, it’s food for thought for those of you who have had comment woes.
Speaking of cursing, I saw a dude wearing a t-shirt with this “saying” on it.
About a block away from him, I saw another dude wearing a “Pull My Finger” t-shirt. First, I thought, “Those are two dudes who are never getting laid.” Then I thought, “Why didn’t Pistols tell me that he and his buddy were coming to town?”
My best sighting ever of the “Fucking Fuck” t-shirt was on a hugely pregnant woman pushing a toddler in a stroller. You just know those kids are going to grow up to be a Supreme Court justice and a rocket scientist, right? I described this to my friend Shawn today and her prediction for the kids was, “20 to life.”
I am the proud owner of a shirt** that says, “Do I look like a fucking people person?” In my defense, my gorgeous friend Kara Baby gave it to me as a joke. Or at least she said it was a joke. She used to work for me, so it’s quite likely that she was thinking, “This accurately sums up WendyB’s professional behavior.”
*Sorry about this post, Nathana. You’ll have to pitch me as the George Carlin of jewelry bloggers. Maybe you can blame it on coprolalia.
**I almost posted an incriminating photo of me wearing the t-shirt, but then my sanity returned.
UPDATED TO ADD: Thanks to ENC for sending me this clip of Katt Williams, a dude who is even more obscene that I am. I have to meet this mofo! Imagine the nasty conversation we would have.
And going back to my original theme, he has some words of wisdom about haters.
