no one is safe

*g* I stumbled across an lj comment somewhere recently (and no, I won't say where) about how odd it was to find writers linking back to blog comments on their books.

Now you know what my life is like. ;-)

Welcome to the Internets, where if you say someone's name, like the Devil, they just might appear...

(I'm going to have to set up a google alert for "El*zabeth B**r," I can just tell.)

And on that note....

A bunch of reviews of things I wrote, for good or ill:

I really liked the Avast! Feminist Conspiracy! one.

I should go do math now instead of hanging around on message boards. But man, I have no ambition.



NB: Oh, and just for future reference? Everybody? And not just the three people I've had this conversation with this week?

When I say "I don't care" about something, I'm not being passive-aggressive. I honestly don't care. Mostly, I have very few control issues about anything, and I'm so laid back I'm dead.

If I care... trust me, you'll know about it.

I'm jealous. My name these days is more common than John Smith. If I try to do a Google search for my name I get eight million hits, and none of them are about me. :(

The worst part? Having the local cops threaten to arrest me for unpaid parking tickets, and they're after a different Michael B. Lee.

I've had that happen *twice*.
booooooooooo.
My maiden name was Smith.

I FEEL YOUR PAIN.
Oh, yeah? Well, I don't care that you don't care. So there!

MKK
I care that you don't care....
message: She cares.
I'm sure there's a brillant and amusing reply I could make. But I got 2 hours sleep last night and spent the day flying cross country. Why am I still up?

MKK
because YOU care.

Me, I'm still up due to insomnia.
Shouldn't that be "I don't Kare...."?

:)
If I care... trust me, you'll know about it.

An opinionated Bear? Say it ain't so, Jack!
So you're often an Uncare Bear? But if you're a Care Bear we'll know.
El*zabeth B**r

So... you're looking for press on Elazabeth Beer?

I hear it's a good dark bitter...

Accused of passiveness . . . normal state for me, too

"When I say "I don't care" about something, I'm not being passive-aggressive. I honestly don't care. Mostly, I have very few control issues about anything, and I'm so laid back I'm dead." **GRIN** Hey, I am mostly this way, too. If I say, "It's up to you," to somebody, I really mean that. It isn't like when my mother or my aunts say it--when THEY say that, they are indicating that you are about to make a BIG mistake and don't come cryin' to them once your hair has turned blue and they are serving your uppity butt back to you on a silver platter, missy. Or people will say, "I don't care *sniff*," and say it in such a way that you know you're supposed to hang around and plead your case.

But because I'm like this, it causes a problem in my fiction. Lately I have gotten lots of complaints that my heroines are "passive" because they aren't aggressive be-yotches who are pressing themselves on people and taking on stuff where it makes no sense. I asked hubby why various comment-leavers and agents might see action X as passive when it makes more sense to me than action Y (leaping up to bash people's heads in when you don't have the entire story), and he said, "It's more entertaining that way." So proper motivation and logic go out the window. I always second-guess myself before I go off on somebody, but most people apparently think that is the action of a weenie. (WRY GRIN)

We need T-shirts that say "Seriously, I really DON'T mind--do what you want!"

I also want one that says "A.C.R.O.N.Y.M." Just because.

Re: Accused of passiveness . . . normal state for me, too

Perhaps we should say, "I have no preference," or "I'm happy either way," instead.
I'm so laid back I'm dead

Well, no wonder the cat is concerned!
Kibo kibo kibo.

Oops.
