    Oh man!

    And here I swore that I would not check blogs all week. Guess that blows that good intention.

    (Waves hi to Sarah. We met at RT St Louis.)

    Hey Bam – when it hits the fan, you’ll want to put that umbrella in front of you, not above you.

    Karen, I enjoy coming over here, you’re fun and brash and informative, and fearless, but do you really want to do this? I suspect I know what inspired this post and the others to come, and I can understand why you feel the need to respond, but…. Why not let sleeping dogs lie? Okay, maybe these dogs aren’t sleeping, but, still, maybe you should let them roll around in their own stuff in their own yard. No one’s gonna change their mind as a result, they’ll be no truces or (sincere)apologies, or *let’s agree to disagrees* or epiphanies of *maybe I overstepped* or respect earned. Things will only get more shiteous and ugly as the festering sores of dislike (and really, y’all can’t stand each others asses. *g*) get picked at over and over in various flamings all over the blogosphere. We’ve barely recovered from the last bout of online drama, maybe a bit of a breather is required? Maybe this one post is enough as I’m sure whomever it’s directed to, knows it. ;-)

    “No one’s gonna change their mind as a result”

    That was a general ‘their’ not a specific ‘their’ since I’m not fool enough to paint a big ole virtual target on my cyber ass.

    For some reason, I thought I’d see a Harry Potter post today. I don’t know what came over me. *lol* Much intrigued…

    I’m curious too – positively intrigued in fact.

    (Still no Tevez yet ; it’s turning into a frustrating summer).

    You flooded up there yet Karen ?

    okay, I’ve decided that Karen is a pain in the tail.

    I’m supposed to be working but I keep interrupting myself to come and see what this project is.

    You’re killing my word count, Karen. Okay, so I have little to no will power, not your fault but still.

    I clearly came to this party late. Now I must go in search of the issue. Being nosy can be a bitch.

    Karen – Whatever the issue, I love you! Except, like Shiloh, I’m blaming you for screwing up my word count needs.

    I think I’m out of the loop, but why does that Ferfe/Fefe/whatever woman have an axe to grind against you Karen?

    Angela, she hates my style of blogging, and would like me to apologise for every bad review I’ve ever written, and wants me to moderate my blog better, and stop being so mean, and bitchy.

    Oh yeah, and I think she has an unrequited girly crush on me too.

    Ferfe’s got a real hard-on for you Karen. You must be tremendously flattered. I would be.

    I get home from the hospital and wonder what’s up with all the Ferfe luuurve?

    Oh well, maybe it’s the leftover remnants of the morphine and I’m reading it wrong.

    Hmmmmm.

    I am a relative newbie in Romancebloglandia and I am not totally certain that I understand the distinction between “snarky” and “bitchy”. But let me try my newbie hand at it.

    Snarky: Wow, I was the first target in Ferfe’s little post that has now been deleted. I would be honored, I suppose, if it were anyone but Ferfe.

    Bitchy: Well, after that cheap shot and showing that she completely misunderstood what I was saying! I certainly won’t be buying her backlist! Oh wait, only one book listed at Amazon. Empty threat on my part.

    In any case, the crack about your vacation was not snark, definite bitch, and if it wouldn’t be an insult to children everywhere, childish. Does her agent know she does this? Me just a reader.
