Ever get the feeling your leisure pursuits have got out of hand? Well if you haven’t lucky old you, because I have. As is my usual habit I whacked up this post, ran the spell checker, hit publish and went to bed, the other evening . Sunny over at Pickled Politics very kindly wrote approvingly of my post and so began my downfall.
I’ve been fortunate in my blogging antics in that no-one takes me even slightly seriously. Which is fair enough I write a personal blog for heaven's sake. As a result I now find myself somewhat out of my depth. In short I have been rumbled as an idiot. Lack of attention is not always a bad thing.
Anyway a clever clogs by the name of ‘Just For Fun’ is the rumbler. I could be pedantic and point out that it’s all very well him getting on his high horse when he can’t for the life of him manage get my name right but I won’t because he has recommended anyone reading my dreadful blog reads this first. So I will merely respond with a book recommendation of my own, read this and you’ll never get my name wrong again. I found his remark 'A donkey carrying books is not literate' painful reading, chiefly because I have always felt embarrassed by my own lack of learning. I expect 'justforfun' has been through university and what have you. Unfortunately for reasons that are utterly tedious and entirely my own fault I didn’t complete my education and have spent my entire adult life trying to combine a full time job and playing catch up ever since, sadly the results have not been what I’d hoped but I plod on. I’m afraid that my brain tends to race ahead of my mouth and my typing finger so my posts do get a bit mangled at times.
Anyway I shall respond to his criticisms here. I have moved them on to my spare pages because I believe I’m due a second mauling which I might want to respond to and so do not wish to take up my entire main blog with this the fallout from this which might have been better confined to my comment box (from my own regular readers point of view).
