Taking The High Road only works if there’s nothing in your way…

Some people really should go and look up the true meaning of ‘libel’ and ‘defamation’…

Book editors, agents, and publishers know how to use Google…

People are often judged by the company they keep…

Google cache is a Blogger’s best friend…

Some people really should utilise the Spellchecker option in Word…

Don’t visit the blogs that you know will induce high blood pressure, that way leads madness…

I actually missed talking about book stuff…

Turn The Other Cheek, is a phrase that should only be used during the application of make-up…

I’ll never take The High Road again, too many potholes…

Private e-mail and IM are good friends, people should use them more, especially for those not-fit-for-the internet type discussions…

Blogflames aren’t characterised by the sheer number of posts and comments, they are characterised by the fucktards who forget to take their meds before posting their comments…

    Oh Karen, how we missed you!

    I loved, “Turn The other cheek, is a phrase that should only be used during the application of make-up…”

    That made me guffaw.

    Sophocles was one wise dude, wasn’t he?

    I was exhausted by the whole thing and wasn’t even involved. Can’t imagine what being in the middle of the shitstorm felt like. Either way, welcome back and happy to see the comments restored.

    And, take the weekend off and recuperate. I’m happy to send you a copy of my newest to read while you do. You can use it for relaxation or holding up the tv or something… 🙂

    I’ve missed the book talk, too. It’s good to see you back. Regarding your point about using email/IM, etc., is there a way to send a comment/observation/question to you without posting a comment for public consumption, if one is not in the inner circle?

    Hey K-rock! I am officially a reader for the week because vacation has started for me. So now you have to recommend something good for me to read. Have you read Marshmallows for Breakfast from the author who wrote Her Best Friend’s girl? I liked that book btw, and would love to hear your review on the next book.

    It’s been a strange and illuminating couple of weeks. Your project was pretty fascinating.

    Agree about Candy and Jane (and Sarah and Sybil and Wendy and Kristie) all of whom it was great fun to meet irl in Dallas.

    I found it really fascinating that an author would display the rampant lack of self-control that Cindy Cruciger has in the past couple of weeks. I tend to take everything that goes on in Romancelandia with a pinch of salt anyway, but this woman’s obvious desire to shoot herself in the foot by demonstrating such poor judgment leaves me open-mouthed.

    I’m glad you’re back Karen, now can we please talk about books, instead of wasting time talking about people who are obviously this side of crazy?!!

    But we’re willing to give ’em back Posh Spice as a conciliatory present, aren’t we Gwen?

    Seriously, Karen!

    WHAT is WITH that woman?! Those sunglasses look like they’re eating her face. She’s a stick with a bad dye job and NO personality. She sounds about as smart as a sack of hair.

    I can’t figure out what the media finds so compelling about her.

    I agree with Karen – I love Posh Spice with a passion. There’s something so deliciously exciting about waiting to see what extreme she’ll go to next. She reminds me of the molten metal killer robot in the Terminator movie, molding herself into whatever form is necessary to ensure global domination. Can you imagine how scary she’d be if she had a brain to go with all that ruthless determination?

    Yay, comments!

    I love Posh, too. She may be a total dag, but she’s lovely (and I’m not being sarcastic–Michael Parkinson says so).
