Random thoughts 10

Well, first of all I want to say thanks for all the kind thoughts/words following my rather abrupt and unexpected return to singledom proper a couple of days ago. It genuinely made me feel a lot better, and I’m so busy at the moment that I don’t really have the time to dwell on what might or might not have been.

My usual response to emotional difficulty is to just brace myself and ride through it, and this will be no different, just a bit more public than I’m used to. But in a sense it’s cathartic, and although I thought for a moment or two that I might just push my blog to one side for a while, here I am, and I suppose here I’ll stay - at least for the foreseeable future.

Just before typing this I came off the phone from speaking to Scottish Sister 2 (SS2, it’s easier) and we had a long conversation about SS1 up in Edinburgh. They have been talking, although I couldn’t help but notice that some things had been left unsaid, and it seems that husband of SS1 might be back in the house but all’s well, at least physically. I have a feeling this is going to be a long-running saga, but we’re all hoping to meet up in London in the first week of December and then get together some time over the Christmas holiday.

It also seems that said husband was under the impression that SS1 and I had been having an affair, based on the fact that we sat round the pool together in Tenerife… well, if he wasn’t such an arsehole he wouldn’t have any reason to worry, but actually we weren’t/didn’t/won’t. Anyway, he’s been shagging some tart in Latvia for god knows how long, so he can go screw himself.

Oh, yes, how could I forget… my friend Zooz now has her own blog, and her first post is a corker – all true, and a very funny read until you realise that it’s actually an episode in the story of her life (she’s a very interesting woman, and a great friend). You can find her here, at A Life More Interesting.

And just before I go… I seem to get a lot of spam email about Viagra, Cialis and some kind of amazing penis growth system (has someone been talking?) but a couple of recent ones really made me laugh. Here... have a look for yourself.

Why does Bart look so angry?

Thanks for the laugh and the update.

Blondie said...

I'm glad you opted out of putting the blog aside. I happen to enjoy your writing a lot. Not to mention I am looking foward to your next podcast. ;-)

I hope SS1 is making the right choice. Its never easy to differentiate what's exactly "right" when you are in those shoes. I know I have to seperate my mind from thinking of "what is best" and what "I think I need". You're doing the best you can by being there for them both. That is truly admirable WDKY.
I am off to read Zooz's blog because I always love her comments.
The first advertisement was funny...the second..I will never see Bart the same. lol

Cheers T!

**AAAH omg, what a horridly long comment...oh well**

Zoozan said...

That was a great blog WDKY, because, despite the fact that you've got all this stuff going on in your own life, you're still concerned about the lives of others (including mine, thanks) and can still consider the pros and cons of chemical assistance in erectile dysfunction

WDKY said...

Anna, I imagine Bart's looking angry because his penis is by now totally numb and he's missing Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on TV.

Blondie, that was a truly long comment, but I enjoyed every syllable. Another podcast is due shortly, and I reaslly must get my recording over to Nukie!

Zooz - you're just too funny. Oh, and I meant to tell you earlier...

Blog = the actual website

Post = the piece you write and then publish to your blog

ROFL!

OMIGAWD! Is that what the graphics on all that spam crap looks like?! I've been filtering it out for eons, and all this time I coulda had cool graphics to send to friends. I *LOVE* Bart Simpson with a Stiffy! It cracks me up! In fact, I hope you don't mind that I've cut & pasted the graphics and have e-mailed them to all my friends today because it made me laugh so hard... and that's a feat, considering that I'm dead tired. WDKY, you absolutely ROCK my friend... I'm glad you're sticking in with the Blog... even if I'm falling behind a bit in my own. It's either post comments or post blog entries... I don't think I've time for both.

Blueprincesa said...

WDKY... here I've been so wrapped up in my own little dramas that I haven't been paying attention to much else, and I only just read about you and CG. I'm really sorry to hear that it happened that way... but don't let it make you afraid to try again one day. There are good women out there, I promise. I'll make a deal with you. Don't lose hope, and I won't either, okay?

Zoozan said...

blog,post,blog,post - ok got it

WDKY said...

Kel - I changed my Thunderbird settings recently and saw what I'd been missing! Well worth it...

Blue, please don't apologise, and that sounds like a great deal. Let's go for it then.

Zooz - you do brighten up my day...

kimmyk said...

Ugh @ Bart. Visually disturbing.

Glad to hear you're busy and haven't the time to dwell on things right now. Is the hubby going to come to this "meet up" in December? I think that would be sort of awkward knowing what you know now. What a dork....

check said...

barts been having sex?? since how long???? isnt he just a kid?? lol..
im soooo glad u did not put your blog aside...it's the first i read everyday! that would be a loss...but its not.. so yay!!

k o w said...

I'm making that Simpsons ad into a t-shirt. Want one?

unforgiving b*tch said...

Scary.Very scary ads indeed.

Networkchic said...

I never liked the Simpsons...

Glad you are busy and not spending too much time dwelling on unpleasant thoughts. I'm also shocked that you thought about leaving us...I'd miss you terribly.

Sher said...

Wow-- I'm gone for a few days and all hell breaks loose!

I'm sorry for the bumps on the road.

Me- I've been in migraine hell for a week. It's been horrible.

Neurologist on Monday.

WDKY said...

Kimmy - dork indeed! I'm not sure if he'll be there or not, but I guess if he is we'll all just have to get on :-)

Check, he's clearly a kid who likes chemicals. And sex. Thanks for the kind words about my blog.

KOW - YES (please)!

UB - don't be scared, it's just a cartoon. My son would say at this point "Is he in OUR world, Dad", and I'd smile at him and say "Of course not".

NWC, that's really nice of you. I'd miss you just as much.

Sher, I'm sorry you've had such a lousy time. Hope all goes well on Monday.

NewYorkMoments said...

Don't you love how cheating spouses of innocent people are always so jealous and possessive. Double standards are disgusting.

nukie310 said...

Are you sure that first spam ad is for viagra? It looks like he's getting kneed in the nuts

WDKY said...

NYM - absolutely! Asshat?

Nukie - I think she's checking the level of firmness/hardness with her knee, prior to engaging in the act itself. Maybe 15 minutes seems too long to wait...

Caterpillar said...

I, like all the others, would miss you desperately if you suddenly disappeared, so I'm so glad that you didn't. I always look forward to coming to see you here!

And the Bart one is priceless, I'm going to share it around as well!

positronic said...

I just read your post-HNT8 post. Sorry about GG. The thing I thought about most was that you said you have to accept you might not meet your soulmate or ideal woman. I think these 'ideal's screw us up a bit. Just imagine how many opportunities we eliminate just because they don't fit the picture. I think we have to forget the picture and think about the collage anyway ;-)

J's Girlfriend said...

Good to hear about SS's and you coping well. Funny how heartbreak doesn't become less painful, just easier to deal with. I try not to say 'more routine'.

The most worrying thing about the spam ad is that the lady's leg in the 2nd one could / wants to be mistaken for a massive, er, member. Personally I just get offered software. Boring. What am I doing wrong?

Anyway have a good weekend!

NML said...

I'm with NYM. Cheaters are paranoid because they project their behaviour on others. Her husbands a dipstick. I'm glad you're OK and judging by your very naughty Bart pic, you are in good spirits xx

NewYorkMoments said...

Asshat for a cheating spouse? No. I prefer a different compound curse. Simply...mutherfucker.

WDKY said...

Cat, you're a sweetheart... thanks. And yes, let's take Bart to the masses.

Pos, I can't disagree with anything you said. Well, I could... no, only joking :-)

J's G - I'd love to say that I agree with your interpretation of the Viagra ad no. 1, but in fact I'm just very worried about you. What kind of boys have you been mixing with?

NML, thanks darling, I;m not doing too badly. And I love that site of yours!

NYM - yes, I think that's much better. I knew I could rely on you.
