People Like This Are Why Stabbing Should Be Legal

(Title stolen from a comment a very good friend of mine made on the FB status I posted yesterday about this subject)

Apparently I’ve done something unthinkable and unforgivable according to an idiot out there. Who would have thought I could really piss someone off with my meaningless blog which no one probably reads unless I pimp out my latest posts on Facebook, Twitter and G+.

Yesterday I got a comment (which instead of approving and replying to, I’m writing my final post for 2011 about) on my last blog post.  This idiot is demanding I take down my blog because I’m “stealing” their reader base. How am I doing that? Well according to them it seems that when someone wants to search for their blog on Google, mine comes up first. Insane right! (The secret is that I bribed the folks at Google because I really have it in for this person I’ve never heard off). Mwahahaha.

Actually the comment really made my day and had me ROTFLMFAO…not only was it hilarious…but they actually think that my meaningless blog is so popular, I have thousands of readers….also that they seem to think that their blog is popular enough to have just as many readers (maybe even more than me…which I found even funnier) and that I wanted to steal them all by creating this blog.

Here’s the comment:

Hello, aussieforgood. This is relatively unrelated to your post, but I wanted to express my dis-contempt with the domain name you’ve chosen. You see, the domain of my wordpress is idiot.wordpress.com*, and when my loyal fans choose to Google search it, your blog comes up first in the index. I’d like you to take the entire thing down, you’re taking my reader base, that is unforgivable. Thanks.

*I’m not posting their “domain” name in this post just in case their loyal readers who are now reading my blog realize that I’m the wrong person and then go back to reading that idiots blog, and we wouldn’t want that to happen, so I’m substituting it with idiot..also there may be a blog out there with a domain name that starts with idiot..if there is I apologize to you for associating you with this idiot, I really didn’t mean to make fun of your blog, I’m pretty sure any blog with a domain name starting with idiot is an awesome one.

Just for clarification, this persons “domain name” is kinda the same as mine but has an extra letter in there somewhere.

And now, just in case the writer of the comment above (which will never be approved and will be moved to the trash as soon as I publish this post) comes back to read my blog, this is my official reply:

  • Dude, what can I do, wordpress made that name available to me…at first I tried 1 “u” then 2, those were taken, 3 “u‘s” were available so I just snatched it up without thinking that maybe someone has the exact same domain name but wanted to add an extra letter in there…next time try taking all domain names close to yours and make them unavailable to everyone else. (OMG!! I just realized that I’m probably stealing all the loyal readers of the other 2 domain names that were already taken!! Oh no!! This means I’m not just stealing your reader base but other peoples too! How evil of me! Oh my, how am I supposed to sleep at night)
  • Try updating your blog regularly instead of ditching it in February then coming back to it in December…maybe your readers (if you really have any) would have stuck around had you been updating in the last 9 months.
  • As of yesterday you have a total 10 blog posts, I have 60…maybe you should take down your blog…not that I see it as any kind of threat to me since I know the people who read my blog, or should I say, I know the people who I want reading my blog, and I don’t think they’ll be interested in reading yours.
  • Maybe you should Google how to get your blog’s ranking higher up in Google instead of Googling your blog, maybe you can find out what a sitemap is and how to use it to your advantage.
  • Oh and please don’t take my use of the word idiot personally…I’m just one of those people who agree with House and I like to call all idiots “idiot”.

I think I’ve done enough idiot bashing for one day. And finally to all my readers (and the ones I’ve stolen) have a happy new year and see you in 2012.

Now back to my Doctor Who marathon.

It’s a Freezer in Here!

It looks like this winter is going to be a REALLY cold one. In the past I’d usually stop wearing my t-shirts and move on to long sleeves in mid December, and then move onto heavy jumpers in January. This year I started wearing my winter PJ’s in November and am already considering taking out the heavy jumpers tomorrow.

The fact that my apartment is on the 4th story, and that there are no more apartments above mine doesn’t help much either because when it rains all the cold seeps in through the roof and the house becomes a huge freezer, then it stays ice cold for the next few weeks, then it rains again and the cycle continues all winter so that the house is never warm. Right at this moment I’m pretty sure that if I took something out of the freezer it would never thaw out, I don’t even think I need a freezer at the moment. I’m also pretty sure that if I wanted to get slightly warmer I could probably open the fridge and stand in front of it since it’s most likely a lot warmer than the apartment, and it would save me from opening the heater and getting a really high electricity bill next month.

This year my hands won’t get warm (it’s a first), my toes are usually the problem and that’s always solved by wearing 2 pairs of socks but I don’t think you can wear socks on your hands…plus it would be impossible to type, or browse the internet, or use the remote. Yes, I know they invented gloves but I cant STAND anything tight around my fingers..plus you still can’t type with gloves on. Also the only gloves I have at home (which are not even mine because I would never buy any) are made of wool and I would never wear or put on anything made of wool…for some reason I can’t even stand touching the stuff. 

As much as I love winter, I wish I could take the next 4 months off work and spend that time in both the UAE and Australia where it’s nice and HOT. Hell I’d even settle for working from there..I just want to feel warm again.
