This week I made a best new friend. I'm telling you, I am a regular miracle worker. I even got to add three new names to my list on the right. Wow. What a great weekend.
Ya'll get bored and want to see the nice, new, completely sound and totally decent friend I made, go on over and look at http://leftbrainrightbrain.co.uk/?p=3144#comment-65044. I bet ya'll can't guess who's my bestest new friend! :-)
Hey, she called me the cat lady. Do you think she meant that bad? Should I add that to my list of names, you think?
Oh, just for her, I'll add a picture of a cat. After all, if she'd looked here first, she might have called me the flower lady.
And she did! Aww, I am totally honored. I am.
You know, you must be doing something right if the people who think nicotine patches on children are acceptable and that acute diseases are God's way of culling the population don't like you. Whatever will I do? The despair. I could be like Louise and say if that don't bounce my bosoms, but I don't have her cleavage. :-)
And the emails, I gots them, too. Aww. Shucks. Blushing.
From Jen, ain't it sweet? Maybe we will get to be best buds after all?

I'm over it. Thanks! I've already received at least a dozen emails. All saying the same, you are a very strange woman of three Autistic children. The overall feeling about you is the same...they feel pity for you and your family. I do have one question....why are you a a part of a yahoo group, such as A-M, that is really of no interest to you considering you don't agree with any of the principals???? What a way to end 4 days. I thank you, I've learned my lesson...it would be less painful to beat my head against the wall then to argue with a group who are committed to never opening their eyes to reality...poor kids."
I'm not, Jen, never have been a member of that group. Never saw it before Wednesday. Only things I read are AoA and Huff.
So glad you are over it, though. I was so worried about your well-being. Honestly. Glad you got the ego boost you needed, though. Shew.
If you thought you were going to make anyone buy into woo over at LRBR, you were sorely mistaken.
And for the record, I don't consider emails from strangers private communications. Think on that before you email again, as I have no problem using it on my blog.
I have no problem with folks thinking I'm a strange lady, and I don't care if they feel pity. Why would I? I just hope you're good with folks thinking you might be the one who's a wee bit off her rocker. Okay? If your group sides with you and my group sides with me, then we both get to walk away with our egoes boosted. Ain't it grand?
And I don't have any problem using it. Get my best material from this kind of stuff.
