Actually, It's "woe"...

Dear anonymous,

I'm glad to know that you read my blog. Even further, I'm glad that even though you claim to look at the positive side of things, my blog made you reach down into the negative part of you and type that lovely little tidbit you left for me.

It's good to know I arouse such emotions.

However, for future reference, I would like you to know that the saying is "Oh woe is me."

Main Entry: 1woe
Pronunciation: 'wO
Function: interjection
Etymology: Middle English wa, wo, from Old English wA; akin to Old Norse vei, interjection, woe, Latin vae
-- used to express grief, regret, or distress
(Courtesy Merriam-Webster Online)

vs.

Main Entry: whoa
Pronunciation: 'wO, 'hO, 'hwO
Function: verb imperative
Etymology: Middle English whoo, who
1 -- a command (as to a draft animal) to stand still
2 : cease or slow a course of action or a line of thought : pause to consider or reconsider -- often used to express a strong reaction (as alarm or astonishment)
(Courtesy Merriam-Webster Online)

I may be negative, however I would like to think that I know how to spell -- contextually that is.

Nonetheless, I thank you for your emotional response to a blog floating in cyberspace. I would encourage you not to read it if you do not like it. After all, I would not want my negative, bitchy posts to impose upon your righteous Dharma-following life.

Oh, do you need a definition of Dharma as well?

That is all,

B

Oh, sorry about that, I can be such a poor spelling bitch....

(kidding)

Actually, too bad they felt the ned to write that, pretty pathetic.

Meanwhile, I wonder if anyone out there is carefully taking care of a Geo Metro in hopes of tooling it around car shows one day?

Hi! I had never read your blog before that night. I was linked to it, to read for entertainment purposes. It took me a full two seconds to want to rip my eyeballs out. It was bitchbitchbitchbitchbitch. ALL YOU DO IS BITCH. I actually read the entire blog to see if there was ONE entry where you didn't bitch, and found your entry about the grocery store, where I nearly sympathized with you about the bagger not helping your groceries to the car. I thought that was mean - until I realized you bitched at him about how he bagged your groceries. AND how he put them in your cart. And that it appeared you went to Kroger, a company that specifically employs people to bag groceries and take them to you car. That he didn't even offer to help you should tell you something. That would never happen in Arlington.

I feel sorry for your husband. I really do.

I know the difference between WOE and WHOA. I'm college educated. I'm not getting into semantics with you, I know what I typed and why I typed it.

Maybe you see someone being pathetic.....which in itself is irony. I see someone that can't be happy regardless of what life hands her, and can't seem to find anything to do but BITCH INCESSANTLY about it.

Not to worry, this is the last comment I will post to you. I really don't care to read anymore of your blog, I don't even know you. I'll part with: be wary of who your friends are. Evidently they're getting tired of hearing you bitch too....they're linking everyone to this blog!
