Now Theodora. You may not have been a target of Squidly's ankle-biting accusations yourself, so you may actually not understand what a hilariously hypocritical yet entirely repellent little shrew she is. So I will tell you.

1. Squidly is Squidly.

2. SqUidly Uses Caps WherEVER SHE raNdomLy waNts tO, appArenTly BECause SHE thiNKs it Makes HER WritiNG stYLe SeEm mOrE AmusInG than IT aCTUally iS ThoUGH I'm Not sUre why SHE THinkS sO, mAyBe someONE toLD HEr That iN 9th grAdE.

3. Squidly has spleen.


All Must Defer To Squidly

At All Times

No matter how viscous, vial, cupid or struggly she wants to be.

Oh yeah - 4. Squidly May Libel With Impunity (no matter how baseless her silly little canards are.) You May If You Want To, but I know that at the end of the day you are a far nicer person than she is.

Maybe it's because she lives in Minnesota. (She lives in Minnesota? Seriously? That's funny, unless you have to live next to her.)

I don't know why. I think maybe she's not getting Enough Nookie or something that entitles Major Fishwifery At All Times. Because no one else is such a pathetic, self pitying skidmark I guess.

Summary: Squidly Squidly Squidly it's all about how close Squidly can come with veiled, pusillanimous dog whistle pseudo-accusations to smear someone as a racist without realizing she's as transparent a sad-ass Little Hitler as you could ever have the misfortune to meet. Squidly Squidly Squidly! (oops, sorry, those last three Squidlys were accidental, this Squidly key I had specially installed on my laptop got stuck for a second there)

Ok Theodora?

See? Squidly says stuff like this^^ so I guess it indicates that her problems with Amy stem not just from her ridiculous sense of having somehow been discriminated against or repressed or dissed or whatever during the ongoing dust-ups here about Israel and the Palestine question but are in fact symptoms of what a bitter, frustrated gutter weasel she is and of how (and in hindsight I don't see how I never noticed before, but this part didn't even occur to me 'til reading her comment on your blog made it blindingly, suddenly obvious) very envious Squidly actually is of Safe Bet's Amy.

See how that works?

Have a gReAT daY!

And I'll go out on a limb and say that I have multiple close Jewish friends (I know. Some of my best friends are Jewish, sorry), one an ex boyfriend now friend and another my dear friend's hubby who is an Israeli, born there, bred there, lived there on a kibbutz, served in the Israeli army, and he doesn't go on incessantly about antisemitism like some folks here. He has extremely conflicted views about Israel. He'd sit down with Amy and be able to have a good conversation I think.

Wow. I thought Myriad and I were friends. Guess I was wrong, and it wouldn't be the first time I've made the mistake of giving the benefit of the doubt to someone who I believe would do me the same courtesy only to find out, voila, they were assuming the worst of me that whole time. Fuck it, though - if defending Amy means I'm part of some kind of mean ol' gang, then go ahead and call me a Gangsta and I'll wear that label with pride even though it was intended as a slur. I have to wonder though why Myr thinks taking up for someone like Amy who has been repeatedly, over and over and over again for years, unjustly accused of being something she just fucking ain't, is so mean yet she's apparently perfectly alright with people on the other side of the aisle who routinely defame and libel the names of those (myself for instance) who's main transgression in their eyes is that Amy is on my friends list and oh yeah btw I don't think it's that cool when the IDf murders innocent women and children. WTF, Myriad?

OMG .. Myriad likes you no less, just has different sensibilities and doesn't see the redeeming qualities in Amy that we do. To each their own. Doesn't have to be all black and white, friend or enemy. Wise words above from clever monkey above. gh, I too once had a Jewish friend, I swear

Comment by nanatehay on March 12, 2017 at 3:47pm

People who like you don't accuse you of gangsterism, sorry. I wasted years of my life making excuses for people who said shitty things to and about me, of wondering, all sad and stuff, why they saw me that way when I'd never done em any harm. I'm way over that phase of my life though. Nowadays, when a person who I had  thought knew me well enough to know I'm a good person takes a dump on me for something I've never done and never would do, I just simplify my life by moving them out of the Friend box to the Everyone Else box. Sounds a little simplistic, I know, but I've found since starting that policy I tend to be a lot happier, both with myself and the people around me. Life is too short to waste with fairweather, part time, "I liked you Tuesday but now it's Thursday I think you're a piece of shit" motherfuckers.

Sorry. I hate the word panties too. It’s an expression. You know what I meant.

I wanted to say on record that I like Myriad and hope she doesn’t leave. She’s funny and quirky and she told off Gordon when he dissed her hair and she writes great posts about food that I would miss. She is a kind person and a spiritual soul. 

I am also fond of nerd cred in spite of her implication that I’m antisemitic if I don’t jump into every debate on Israel and take a stand. Not everyone who visits this site is a politico, just like not everyone who visits this site is an artist. I can enjoy someone, yet not want to get into weeds on their political posts. Amy seems to understand that. I hope Myriad and Nerd Cred do too.

This has been a fun couple of days for the creatives. Usually it’s the other way around, long stretches of some variation of Trump Sucks posts filling the feed, no posts about art, poetry, humor to be found. I check in, see that the well is dry, another time then.

Thanks everybody for a fun old timey romp and the terrific hairdo tips. I have to return to work tomorrow. Spring Break's over :(

Based on my admittedly fairly limited experience of blogging and bloggers (almost exclusively at OS and here at Our Salon though I did mess around a bit briefly with Word Press and a couple others), I place Myriad in an entirely different category than I do a skidmark like Squidly. I've known Myriad for over 9 years and for most of that time have considered her a friend, and I don't share the bifurcated conception that some folks have of their online friends and their supposedly more *real* sort of RW friend - if someone is my friend, they're my friend, period, and I will go to the wall for them. During the entire time I've known her, Myriad has consistently demonstrated a level of insight, common sense and decency which I admire and value highly, so it sucks she thinks I'm something I'm not, but oh well that's how the cookie crumbles sometimes. Nerd Cred, on the other hand, has never been anything more than a smear of dog shit stuck on my boots, and every now and then you need to sit down for a minute, get a flat head screw driver, and scrape that nasty-ass dookie out from the lug on your soles before it gets all over the carpet in your living room. You say she and you were once friends, heron, and I respect that, but I've been libelled before on Open Salon and now here by NC and others - ask Amy what that feels like, ask Padraig Colman and Clio about how directly it can affect your life and your career and while you're at it ask trig his views about our mutual friend Bonnie Russell, or maybe I'll do a post sometime about my old OS buddy Caracalla's Amanuensis and explain exactly why I have zero tolerance for that kind of repeated, intentional, premeditated fuckery, and in the meantime anybody who thinks I'm being too unfair or too mean or too whatever to poor little ol' Squidly can kiss my hairy white ass.

Heron - I know that you get what I'm saying here, so the last part of my previous commented wasn't directed at you, although it mighta sorta read that way. It's more for the one or two lurkers who might happen by and raise an eyebrow or scratch their head in puzzlement at the virtually crazy blogger having virtual conversations mainly with himself about crazily virtual stuff.

Comment by nanatehay on March 12, 2017 at 6:50pm

Waddaya mean, virtual? This shit is real, dude.

Comment by nanatehay on March 12, 2017 at 6:51pm

No it ain't.

Comment by greenheron on March 12, 2017 at 6:51pm

Monkey, wait! Everyone has been having eviscerating parties over at Vegas? How did I not know this? We should unite and bomb his comment stream with pictures of cheese. We could post them in shifts, faster than he could delete them.

Nana, I don’t doubt your experience. I don’t know the details, and don’t need an explanation. I remember Bonnie and Cara-whatshisface. Those were two deeply disturbed individuals, way out of the league of garden variety neurotics like me.

I agree about Myriad. She’s someone I think of as a friend and whom I enjoy. I'm not on facebook so I don't see old saloners there like some do. I'll miss her. I haven’t seen nerd cred around for a long time, so maybe she already bounced?

Kind of meta, but something I’ve observed is that when playful creative posts are plentiful, like this weekend, some politicos who normally post daily go quiet, don’t make a daily post, don’t come play on the posts that are up. I’m not sure why. Maybe they feel that silly posts are beneath them. Maybe they’re bored by posts about poetry, art, hairdos. Maybe debate is the language they are most comfy speaking. I don’t know. You guys yelled at Ron, but he gamely visited the grrls post, brought a pack of smokes, and also made a post of his own celebrating women poker players. He’s a good egg in my book. So are you and tr ig for also fearlessly visiting the grrls room. Not many xy did.

Sorry if the meta is killing this post. So how’d you like the vid of Rollie crushing his armadillo toy? You didn’t watch it did you?
