STICKS & STONES

OK...before I get going here, I'd like to address a recent issue. Yesterday I was left a really unfortunate comment, one which I chose not to publish; that being said, I will comment upon it. {original post here} But first, here's the comment:

"Nice bit of hypocrisy there. Drunk as hell but draws the line at poppers. I suppose that means you do have some principles... not sure where you keep them tho."

First off, it's spelled T-H-O-U-G-H. Secondly, choosing not to do drugs I've never tried before, with a random person, in an unusual enviorment, did not, nor still appeals to me. THOUGH I was "drunk as hell" I still had the good sense not to get into a potentially fucked-up situation.

You can question my morals, or lack thereof, or my principals...but don't call me a HYPOCRITE (unless you also would like to labeled as one). And that's not because I'm not one, I am indeed. But you know what? With the right kind of angle, anyone can be viewed as a hypocrite.

Even you.

Justin,
Ignore the moron. They don't have to read the blog if they have issues. They need to get a life.

I'm not sure I see what the problem is, Justin.

After reading the "unpublished" comment, it doesn't seem too harsh to me.

It's just some other person's opinion.

I think you need to reread what this person posted. What SPECIFICALLY about that comment bothered you so much that you felt it couldn't be published the first time around?

Something must've struck a nerve with you. Much deeper than you realize. It may be a divine opportunity for you to do some soul searching.

Think about it.

I have to say, I fucking love your shit. "First off, it's spelled T-H-O-U-G-H. Love it.

You don't need to justify your actions to anyone other than yourself. Doing something you are not comfortable with is insane. The snarky comments come with having a blog. At least you didn't have a crazy cyber-stalker like the one who who frequented my blog. I bet he left the comment anonymously. The creepy ones always try to hide.

Justin!

I'm going to be a bit of a jerk here but being a grammatically obsessed person I just have to do this!

Technically "tho" IS correct.

"Tho" is an informal, shorthand version of "though". Also, "tho" was used more commonly in writing during the 19th century but lost popularity as time went on.

Look it up and see for yourself!

Hang in there and don't let the "unpublished" comment get you down!

You gave him more credence by addressing his stupid comment. Fucktards don't need the encouragement, they are just that...Fucktards. Just delete it next time and don't let it bother you. We all know you did the right thing in the situation and that's all that counts.

Bah, don't let it bother you too much.

Although for the record, I'd be hesitant to do poppers with Mama C, too! Who knows what she might do to you!

Ugh what a stupid face. Ignore his ugly unhappily sober mug and keep playing the way you want to play. It's non of his beeswax. If he's uncomfortable reading there are plenty of boring blogs out there for him to read.

Hey. That guy was foolish.

Also, I'm kind of intrigued by this "empty city" phenomenon ... next holiday I'm not away I fully plan on taking advantage of it. Any suggestions?
