Knots in the Stomach Are Soooooo Yesterday!

"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."
"We have a natural right to make use of our pens as of our tongue, at our peril, risk and hazard." ~Voltaire

“Being tolerant does not mean that I share another one’s belief. But it does mean that I acknowledge another one’s right to believe, and obey, his own conscience.” ~Frankl

"Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer." ~Barbara Kingsolver

I always enjoy a good quote, and thanks to friends who shared these.
Farewell knots in the stomach, you were no good to me. I'm over you. But one last thought before you go, just take notice...you're leaving, not me.

There is my old friend I know so well! Glad you are back... Not that I like bumper stickers... but remember the one in the 90's that said "mean people suck"? Sorry Mamma Snarky, not the best language but I like the statement!
Love ya Nat!

Just as some won't read your blog for what you write, the rest of us read it because of what you write.

Don't forget that

Would the congregation please join me in bidding those who chose to leave early, farewell?

Nahnahnahnah....Nahnahnahnah..hey, hey...hey..hey...Goodbye! Nahnahnahnah.....Nahnahnahnah..hey, hey...hey....hey...Goodbye!
(complete with "The Wave")


RitterB....drastic circumstances call for drastic measures....pardon granted! :) :)

wow, looks like you deleted my comment. It was neither rude nor even snarky. THAT is why people stop following. Remain safely ensconced in your bubble of self-affirmation.

Well....I guess my point from yesterday is proven...they WERE SO NOT GOING ANYWHERE, one could only wish! Couldn't resist the power of Snarky, now could you....oh and by the way, one is required to have some level of intelligent wit in order to even be "snarky."

However, rude, on the other hand, requires nothing more than lack of tolerance and/or social skills. Neither of which, those who were deleted made more than obvious, they did not possess.

Oh yeah, one more thing, when everyone around you affirms what you say and supports you, EVEN when they don't agree, for the record...THAT is not SELF-affirmation...........got it?

What did Thumper's mom teach him? "If you can't say something nice, don't say nuthin at all!" People need to learn and keep their comments to themselves when needs be. We (your faithful followers) are glad you're back. We missed you, however short you were gone from us.

I like you being Snarky. Don't change. Ever. Nuf said. I also enjoy your mother's eloquent comments. Keep 'em coming "mom"!

On another note, I'm going to be completely tacky and say "thank you" for Andrew's gift at Christmas via a "comment". If I don't I never will. Life is CRAZY. Forgive me for not sending one via snail mail this year.

love you!

This is why MOST of your readers love you.

For every "reader" that leaves, you will get 2 new ones - I believe in speaking life and speaking things that aren't as tho they are...which is biblical as well!

Man I have been sick for a week and I feel like I missed out on so much! I love you snarky...for who you are and what you stand for. Keep on being you....and your big blond friend in KC has your back.
