Mommy bloggers!

mommy blogger blogging

I hate blogging.

Some of you might have noticed a comment I received on my last post about Degree magical motion sensing deodorant from a blogger (and ATTORNEY!!!!!) named Charlene. The purpose of this comment was to inform me that embedding her Youtube video was a violation of copyright. Guess what Perry Mason, you lost another case and your client is going to the electric chair.

Let’s all spend less than 3 seconds to research your claim of copyright infringement and look at Youtube’s terms of service, section 6C…

You also hereby grant each user of the Service a non-exclusive license to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, display and perform such Content as permitted through the functionality of the Service and under these Terms of Service.

You are as bad at being an attorney as I am at not being awesome.

Let’s also keep in mind that her vague but threatening comment all centers around a video about DEODORANT! She wants to argue about deodorant? Your husband is a lucky man, you seem REAL carefree and fun Charlene!

Oh my dear friends, the story doesn’t end there. I took a little walk over to charlenechronicles.com and what do I see? What the fucking fuck do I see, but a rant… ABOUT ME! In this little rant, Charlene blabbed on and on about copyright violations, which would be fine IF I ACTUALLY VIOLATED HER RIGHTS. Clearly Charlene, the world’s greatest attorney and self-proclaimed social media expert, doesn’t understand the contract she entered into with Youtube.

Now, will she print a retraction and apologize for having the fucking gall to accuse me of stealing her STUPID VIDEO ABOUT DEODORANT? What do you think? I submitted a comment on her blog explaining Youtube’s policy but it has yet to be approved and I’m pretty sure it will not be.

My favorite thing about her asinine post is that she refuses to link to my site because she doesn’t want to “drive traffic” to me. I think you can risk sending your 3 readers a month my way. Based on your impressive average comment count of zero, I think it would be OK.

Let me make something very clear, I am not pretending to be angry in an attempt to be funny or get back at this woman, I am genuinely VERY pissed off. I don’t need some boring, bland, blogging mommy who spends her days shilling for deodorant companies to accuse me of stealing from her and then use me as a topic of discussion on her incredibly interesting blog that normally covers exciting topics like a block-by-block description of her morning jog. At one point she saw a pile of trash on the street! Thrilling Charlene.

I hope Charlene has purchased and cleared the rights for EVERY photo and graphic she has ever used on her blog. If not, that would be a major violation against the copyright owners. I may not be a lawyer, but I once saw a porno about a bunch of lesbian lawyers, so yeah, I pretty much know a thing or two about the law.

Let me tell you something about most of these mommy bloggers… they are liars and they are charlatans. They are snake-oil salesmen and they are shills. They give RAVE reviews of products and encourage you to check them out with an innocent little link. What most people don’t know is, contained within that link is code, code that pays the sweet little mommy a commission when other mommies buy whatever shit the blogger is “loving.” Hard to imagine anything other than a five star review when a possible commission check is looming overhead.

I’m waiting for my apology Charlene. I want the world (a.k.a. your 3 readers) to know how sorry you are for accusing me of stealing from you when the reality is that you, the blogging and social media expert, couldn’t blog your way out of a blog sack. I don’t know exactly what a blog sack is, but I’m pretty sure it’s not that hard to blog out of.

I hope you enjoy the traffic I’m sending you.

  2. Mary Kitt-Neelon 10 May 2011 at 5:16 pm

    I know I’m late to the party, but I gotta share this list of “Tips for your Mommy Blog.”
    http://www.mcsweeneys.net/links/lists/17gehan.html

    Caveat: normally anything remotely associated with McSweeney’s makes me want to vomit and then kill people, but this was pretty damn funny.

  3. Aka kevinnon 10 May 2011 at 10:22 pm

    I was late also it’s ok

  4. CreatureofHabiton 30 May 2011 at 2:28 pm

    Please, you don’t even KNOW late to the party!

    I have to say, Listy, (in addition to the fact that I miss you) that this is some of the best writing yet and for sure the best comments evah. (I say “evah” because like Miss Charlene, I too am a Masshole).

    I also must tell you that though it seems I have a new love. And that love is Diss Content. *swoons*

  5. kayon 09 Nov 2011 at 3:05 pm

    Wow! Most of you people seem pretty angry and I feel sorry for any poor soul that might be near you.

  6. You Just Made My List!on 09 Nov 2011 at 3:11 pm

    Kay – Sorry, it’s our fault the world is filled with idiots. Deal with it or go away.

    I’m a mommy blogger and PROUD OF IT. I have three amazing daughters ages newly 11, 8, and 3. I’ve been blogging since my eldest daughter was born.
    And I don’t have only 3 readers, I have over 400. And on my most recent post I had forty comments.
    I can’t believe that you’d judge mommy bloggers (e.g. me and Charlene) for something that we like to do.
    And I’m not adding a link to my blog because why would I let a judgmental moron like you on my blog when I could control whether you do or not?
    I read Charlene’s blog, and she’s a fantastically gifted writer. Oh, and her language is clean.
    I know that I mentioned this in my last comment, but why so much profanity? Profanity is a inappropriate and worthless way of expressing anger.

  8. You Just Made My List!on 28 Nov 2013 at 2:44 pm

    (Slow clap)

    I’m curious, genius, why are YOU free to judge me but I am not free to judge others? Why are YOU able to call me a “moron” but somehow it’s ME who is the profane jerk?

    There is nothing I hate more in this world than hypocrisy. Talk about a sign of a weak mind.

    I’m sure your mommy blog is filled with incredibly interesting and important musings about coupons and your favorite comfy winter socks but the world will never know because you don’t have the courage to share.

    Enjoy your delusions of superiority Amy!

  9. Amyon 28 Nov 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Again, you missed the point of my response, which solidified the fact that you have absolutely no idea of the definition of hypocrisy and judgemental.
    May I define judgmental for you:
    1. Involving the use or exercise of judgment
    2. Tending to make moral judgment
    And, my blog has nothing to do with coupons. I’m a mommy blogger. I write about my life as a stay-at-home mom of my three amazing girls who are the pride and joy of my life.
    I can’t believe that in your other post you talked about bringing your daughter to the orphanage and telling her “You’re not my child anymore”!. What kind of mother (or father, whichever) says that? And, again, this is not judgmental.
    You need to take responsibility for the things that you’ve been doing on this blog.
    If you ARE a mother or father (which I highly doubt), you may want to stop all this hating and set a example for your child.
    Also, you may want to educate yourself on the definition of plagiarism. Never, is it ever right to steal someone else’s property, in real life or online, as its considered stealing, no matter what its about.

  10. You Just Made My List!on 28 Nov 2013 at 11:32 pm

    OH MY GOD! Are you really so humorless and boring that you can’t recognize even the most blatant sarcasm? This website is not for you. The entire internet is probably not a good idea for you. You don’t need to have the same sense of humor as me but you should be able to AT LEAST recognize the concept of…

    …wait wait wait, why am I even wasting my time trying to explain sarcasm to you? Good lord, you are boring!

    Please, enjoy writing your simple-minded “mommy blog” and leave the rest of the internet to the fun people. God I wish you had the balls to share your brilliant blog about the adventures of being stay at home mom!

    Some mom you are, spending THANKSGIVING fighting with strangers on the internet. Here’s an idea… spend a little more time actually being a mom and a little less time blogging about it.

    One last thing, idiot, what the FUCK do you mean by “plagiarism?” Once again you lack the basic skills necessary to understand 1) plagiarism and 2) the TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF YOUTUBE! Why are you some dumb? Honestly, please explain this to me? FUUUUUCK, the world is so filled with dip shits now! You drag the rest of us down with your half-truths and “gut instincts” about everything. It’s such a chore sharing the planet with you. You make the smart people work twice as hard and it’s fucking annoying. Why can’t you understand the INSANELY BASIC concept that when you post something on Youtube you grant other users the RIGHT to distribute it? Why don’t rules apply to you and Charlene? I know why, because you are fucking morons. Seriously, just a couple of boring idiots who don’t think the rules should apply to everyone equally.

    Let me remind everyone one more time that we are talking about a DEODORANT VIDEO! Deodorant, god damn deodorant (said with head on desk and fist gently pounding desk)

    You are profoundly simple-minded.

  11. Amyon 29 Nov 2013 at 9:18 am

    Once again, you missed the entire point of my response, which again solidifies the fact that you love to judge.
    The time that I posted the comment was incorrect. I didn’t spend Thanksgiving debating with you. I checked my email before my kids woke and after they were in bed.
    And, not to be conceited or anything, but I am smart!
    And I have an incredible family and friends.
    Lastly, I don’t spend all my time blogging. I blog once a day at 5:30 AM!
    Oh, and one last thing. It doesn’t matter what the check you stole! There is no excuse to steal someone else’s personal property!

  12. Amyon 29 Nov 2013 at 9:22 am

    Oops! Should’ve said “what the heck you stole!

  13. You Just Made My List!on 29 Nov 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I can see from your IP address that you are commenting as two different people on the site, so I’m bored now.

  14. Amyon 16 Dec 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Seriously? Commenting as two people? Unless someone stole my personal information, you’re lying!
    Let me define plagiarism:

    The practice of stealing someone’s work and passing it off as your own.
    And hypocrisy:
    The practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense
    I do think that rules apply to everyone equally. I’m an educated adult and mother.
    You could call me moron all you want, I don’t even really care.
    “It’s such a chore sharing the planet with you”. Wow. That was a bona fide insult, in case you missed it.
    Really, I understand sarcasm. That wasn’t sarcasm!
    Judge me all you want, I’m compelled to respond to mean responses to me, which I need to work on.
    I admit that I did blog about your little “hate site”.

  15. You Just Made My List!on 16 Dec 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Boring. I can see your IP address which allows me to see every time you have left a comment as one of you many personalities.

  16. Amyon 17 Dec 2013 at 6:58 pm

    Alright, someone stole my personal information. I don’t have “many personalities” as you suggested. I just contacted the FBI, as someone must be stealing my personal information, leading to them having the same IP address as me! I do have to thank you for letting me know that….Again, I could assure you, I have one personality and that is my own.
    AND, it doesn’t matter what you stole, it was copyright infringement, it doesn’t matter if it was deodorant or toilet scrubbers, you stole a video AND the post was about you hating it. Its one thing if you were giving a nice review on it, but you hated on it!

  17. You Just Made My List!on 17 Dec 2013 at 7:49 pm

    Boring.

  18. Amyon 17 Dec 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Just stop! How am I boring? My comments are boring? Well then SORRY, but I don’t have time for this so I keep my comments short and simple. The police just got off the phone and they’re further investigating this and I’m prepared to blog about it. I honestly don’t care if you think that I have multiple personalities, I don’t even know you and as long as I truly know that I DON’T have multiple personalities (I don’t. Don’t believe me? Stop by my house and check my computer! If we ever meet, I encourage you to do so) that’s all that really matters.

  19. You Just Made My List!on 17 Dec 2013 at 9:11 pm

    yawn.

  20. Amyon 18 Dec 2013 at 6:41 am

    I’m done with you! I don’t have “many personalities”, I’m an educated adult and mother (who doesn’t have time to create “many personalities”). If I did have “many personalities” I would take responsibility and tell you, because I was taught to do so as a child AND it’s the right thing to do.

  21. Amyon 18 Jan 2014 at 10:13 pm

    Person who writes this site, just want to clarify once again, that I don’t have “many personalities”. Hey, if I do, then why don’t you name them for me? Just proves how dishonest you are.
    I’m not humorless at all. I have a sense of humor, I use it in the real world and on my blog. Yes, I do use sarcasm.
    Just because you meet one mommy blogger who you consider “boring” doesn’t mean that the others are.
    I began my blog right after my eldest daughter was born, to capture motherhood, my life, and the pure joy of parenting.
    If you do want, I could comment with a sample of some of my posts, just to prove that my blog is not at all boring and stupid. Just let me know.
    This blog has been inactive for like two in a half years, but what this really what you spent a lot of your time doing? Hating? That’s just sad. I wouldn’t waste a lot of my time writing a hater blog, because I have way better things to do with my time! My life is a lot more fun, rewarding, blessed, happy, busy, exciting, full, and lucky and to waste my energy writing a hater blog would be sad.
    I’m a perfectly happy person who is just compelled to respond to such stupidity and ignorance. I love my life, children, husband, pet dog, extended family, and friends.
    When I said that profanity was an inappropriate and worthless way of expressing anger, I meant to say that OVERUSED profanity was an inappropriate and worthless way of expressing anger. Yes, I do curse, but not in front of children, and I don’t have what you would consider “a truck driver mouth” (that’s an expression for someone who swears A LOT).

  22. Amyon 23 Jul 2014 at 3:07 pm

    I just remembered you and thought that I’d stop by and finish my comment that I made in January.
    Is there some definition that you have of mommy bloggers? Simple-minded, boring, bland bloggers.
    It’s really not that.
    I blog about motherhood, lifestyle, and humor. I LOVE BEING A MOM. With every ounce of my being.
    I find it silly that you think that I have way too much time on my hands – I JUST remembered you and my unfinished comment today.
    I have the busy and exciting life of a mom. Shuttling my kids places, etc. I go to Target (my favorite store) a lot. I get coffee at Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. I wake at 4:00 AM and run from 4:30 AM-5:30 AM.
    Do you really think that mommy bloggers have no readers? Lots of my blog friends have readers. I have over 10,000 readers, and some of my blog friends have even more.
    So….I am going to comment with a sample of my posts just to prove to you that mommy blogs are not boring. There will be more to come, when I find the time.
    Regards,
    Amy

    I finally found the time. My kids are playing and my husband is working.
    First off, I know what plagiarism means. Once someone stalked me, and then stole my pictures and words and put them on their own blog, impersonating me. I had to call the FBI, file a police report, and contact my lawyers.
    “I protect my love and passion for city living fiercely. I admit to being a little too ‘pro-city’ when having a dinner with my dear suburban friends.
    What I love about my area is that there is something for everyone and every taste. Inner city lofts, quaint city living in homes, inner-ring suburbs, subdivisions, etc. So many reasons that you live where you do: coffee down the block, culture at your doorstep, the appeal of a new home or the charm of an old home, great schools, etc.
    Every time that we come to our house, I know why we live here. Why we choose not to have the master baths, the attached garages, the extra space, the homes not close together.
    I love this city and the people that live here. I love that my neighbors do live so close – they watch our home – as we do theirs. Our schools are great.
    We choose to have one living area, small baths, detached garage, three bedrooms.
    Most importantly, while we may be in the city, this is still a small, quiet, cozy, safe, friendly, street noise and tall building free city with charms to be found at every turn. We walk to Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, Target, Subway, the playground, the pool with big waterslides, the park, restaurants, the grocery store, etc. We have fourteen long blocks of homes swarming with kids here, so trick-or-treating is easy.
    I feel safe here, and can’t imagine raising my kids anywhere else.
    How about you? City, suburbs, or country?”.

    “Sunday. Three in a row on the couch. Heads together. Sharing one blanket. I hear the kiss of a head. A giggle at a joke. A head on a shoulder.
    5:30 AM most mornings. I hear this from K-Meadow and E-Cutie’s bedroom. ‘Booboo, cwould you hear me? I’m scawed”. Followed by ‘Let me come lift you out of the bottom bunk so that we could snuggle”. Followed by soft giggles and a return to slumber.
    It’s E-Cutie wrapping her arms around her sisters and telling them how much she loves them. It’s how she walks to them for comfort and sits on their laps, hugs and kisses them, and she sleeps with them. She’s their biggest fan.
    Teaching my children to be present for eachother is a lesson of beauty, love, and humanity.
    I love when they celebrate eachother”.

    “My husband acted like it was Christmas when he opened the box. He interrupted dinner and everything when the UPS guy came. ‘I have a present for you’, he said. The girls stopped eating to help him, adding lots of ‘What is it? What did you buy?’.
    ‘It’s a reflector for you to wear when you run. It’s super lightweight and easy to wear, and now you could be seen as I worry about you when you run’.
    But I want to be a black shadow in the night.
    I want to go unnoticed.
    I want to go untouched.
    Not from cars – the reason that my husband bought the reflector – but from men.
    My area is so safe – but anything could happen.
    (I write in Italics when I’m quoting myself).
    ‘Um, yeah, thank you the Hubs, but I don’t want to wear that as I don’t want to be seen’.
    ‘You don’t want to be seen? I don’t get that. Aren’t you worried about being hit?’.
    ‘It’s because you’re 6’4 and a man. You worry about getting hit. I worry about attacked or raped. I don’t worry about cars – I don’t see a lot because it’s so quiet here – and I give them the right of way – always. So I run in all black with pepper spray, a stunner, and my phone with 911 on speed dial’.
    ‘Oh’.
    Because I have been seen. We were on vacation somewhere, not in my state.
    The time two boys on a scooter did see me. 17 or 18. Wearing expensive shorts.
    They chased me through yards and on sidewalks, yelling about what they were going to do when they caught me.
    They stop their scooter and get off, and since it was still pitch black, I dig out my flashlight and turn it on to stun them. It worked. Then I dig out my pepper spray and spray it directly in their eyes. When they are done clutching their eyes, I yell ‘I have 911 on speed dial. I will call if you don’t leave RIGHT NOW’.
    It scared them off.
    I have three daughters. I hate that I always have to tell them not to walk or bike alone. I HATE that I want them not to be seen.
    Not all men and boys are a threat. But yes, all women have to worry.
    I hate that men could run from 4:30 AM-5:30 AM with reflective gear and a headlamp, but women have to run hidden in black at 4:30 AM-5:30 AM with 911 on speed dial, pepper spray, and a stunner.
    I shouldn’t have to carry the pepper spray that my husband also bought me.
    We need to change this reality”.

    “I have good kids. I just do.
    They haven’t ever fought with eachother. They ask for donations for a cause along with presents for their birthday. They hold the door, and will take the smallest piece of candy so that everyone else has enough. They don’t own any electronic devices except for a Wii’.

  24. You Just Made My List!on 26 Jul 2014 at 1:49 pm

    Ummmmm… what just happened? Is “Amy” blogging on my blog? It feels a little bit like being hugged by your aunt for too long.

  25. Amyon 26 Jul 2014 at 4:26 pm

    What the?
    Alright, I’m taking the gloves off, so be prepared!
    You are acting like worst kind of moron out there. I copied and pasted some of my posts to prove to you that mommy blogs are not boring. I’m not blogging on your blog.
    Why put my name in quotation marks? Are we still arguing about the “many personalities” thing? The FBI found some identity theft kind of thing in the computer, therefore you found many personalities under my IP address on your blog.
    “Kind of like being hugged by your aunt for too long”. Huh? That sentence has nothing to do with what we’ve been discussing.
    I simply can’t imagine my kids turning out to be like you – I raise my daughters to be kind and compassionate. My kids are amazing and I love more than the air that I breathe.
    But – oh, you are funny. Someday – alright NEVER EVER – will I understand why people need to judge others.

  26. You Just Made My List!on 26 Jul 2014 at 5:34 pm

    It’s funny that “Amy” (Tracy Morrison) has spent an insane amount of time judging me but she claims she will never “understand why people need to judge others.”

    I hope your kids turn out to be just like you. A person who is dishonest and hypocritical.

    If any of you would like to read some of “Amy’s” brilliant musing about “how to mow the lawn” or the “best shorts for moms” head on over to her blog…

    http://sellabitmum.com

  27. Amyon 26 Jul 2014 at 6:33 pm

    Nope. I wasn’t dishonest. When I initially commented on this blog, I didn’t want to use my name. After all, you spent all this time writing a hater blog. So I didn’t use my real name.
    I did that because of a need to protect me, my children from whoever you really could be (a cruel, hypocritical, dishonest, sad person).
    Also, why don’t you read more of my blog? I didn’t just write about the best shorts for moms or how to mow the lawn (and if you go read my lawn post, you will realize that it was HUMOR). I write about all topics. So go browse my blog more. I challenge you to criticize me more about it. Go ahead while I sit with my cup of coffee and laugh out loud.
    One last thing – how did you find my blog? Do I have another stalker?

  28. Amyon 26 Jul 2014 at 6:35 pm

    Oh, and I didn’t mention that I have two cats too, because just protecting my three pets.

  29. You Just Made My List!on 26 Jul 2014 at 7:38 pm

    It’s a shame you are so off-the-charts crazy because you kind of have the MILF look I really like. Brunette, in good shape with a strong jaw. The fact that you are a little unhinged and pretty bored (based on your blog) just makes me fall in love with you even more! Just think of the great hate sex we could have. It’s a shame we live over 4,000 mile apart. DAMN YOU GOD!

  30. Tracyon 26 Jul 2014 at 7:55 pm

    How do I seem bored?
    Your comment seems dangerous, I am thisclose to calling the police.

  31. You Just Made My List!on 26 Jul 2014 at 8:03 pm

    How do you seem bored? Well, you are threatening to call the police, that sounds like a person looking for something to do.

    Exhibit B: This never-ending conversation about shorts is not the mark of women who are very stimulated by life.

    http://sellabitmum.com/2014/07/01/best-shorts-for-moms/

    Exhibit C: You have spent an incredible amount of time on a website written by a horrible person who you claim to hate. For the love of god, it’s SATURDAY and you have spent hours on this site!

  32. Tracyon 26 Jul 2014 at 9:27 pm

    Goodness gracious, the ONLY REASON that I am even responding is because I get an email whenever you respond to me, for some strange reason.
    I am not bored, I am perfectly fine.
    I didn’t ever say that I hate you. You are dishonest, hypocritical, and rude, but I wouldn’t say that I hate you.
    Did you even read more of my blog posts – and more importantly – how did you even find my blog?

  33. You Just Made My List!on 26 Jul 2014 at 9:32 pm

    Please, I am begging you to give me ONE example of my dishonesty and hypocrisy. You are so boring you can’t even come up with you own criticisms.

    I had to use a special website to find your amazing blog about shorts – http://bit.ly/IFHzvO

  34. Tracyon 26 Jul 2014 at 9:45 pm

    DID YOU, DID you read my blog? I wouldn’t consider myself boring. I am not perfect, not a perfect mom or wife or writer or cook, but I am not boring.
    Please, read through my archives and see what I mean.
    My blog centers around shorts? Why is it the SHORTS that you talk about, and nothing else. I wrote one post about the best shorts, and the rest of my blog is motherhood, lifestyle, and humor, will you READ, please.
    BUT HOW did you find my blog? I get that you used Google, but did you copy and paste my comment? How?
    I’m not even going to go into how you are dishonest, because there really are no examples. When you put your words together, it shows, and you have lied through your comments to me. AGAIN, the only reason that I called myself Amy is because I don’t want you knowing my name. You gave me the creeps at first. But you found my name, Tracy.
    I encourage you to watch my podcast for The Blogging Betties. You could find it by typing in my blog’s name, and it will prove a lot.

  35. You Just Made My List!on 26 Jul 2014 at 10:02 pm

    Yes, I read your shorts article and found it to be incredibly entertaining AND informative. I actually just submitted it for a Peabody Award. Fingers crossed Tracy Amy!

    I should also submit the following sentence of yours…

    “I’m not even going to go into how you are dishonest, because there really are no examples.”

    Are you one of those climate change deniers? Do you just kind of “go with your gut” and ignore facts when it comes to everything in your life, or do those rules only apply to me?

    I honestly wish you could see the real me and what my life is all about. I PROMISE you, I am the absolute opposite of everything you imagine. But where is the fun in that, Amy Tracy? It’s more fun for you to continue to obsess over me.

    You, you can bet your life that I will be listening to your podcast. Are you kidding me? OF COURSE I will be listening!

    I’m guessing on a scale from 1 to 10 you are falling in love with me at about a 7 right now. I think I can get you to an 8.5 by the end of the weekend. As far as my love for you Tramy… the sky is the limit, I am head over shorts for you Amacy!

  36. Tracyon 27 Jul 2014 at 6:01 am

    BUT did you read the rest of my blog, besides the SHORTS?
    You could stop calling me Tracy Amy. You know that the only reason that I used a bogus name is BECAUSE I didn’t want to use my real name in front of you because you gave me the creeps.
    I don’t obsess over you. In fact, I wish that I didn’t get an email from WordPress EVERY.SINGLE.TIME that you respond to me, because then I could just ignore you. However, when I see an ignorant comment posted to me, I am compelled to respond.
    So, go read through my blog archives and IGNORE.THE.SHORTS. Gosh. I find it funny that you keep on ignoring that.

    Tracy, can I be real with you for a while? Honestly you just aren’t funny, fun or interesting to me, in any way. Your blog is excruciating and the podcast is torture to me. Listening to you and those other cackling hens talk about your post about some stupid pillow is literally less enjoyable to me than an air horn blown directly into my ear. There is nothing about you that is even the slightest bit interesting to me.

    The question is, why do you CARE so much about my opinion? Do you have any idea how much hate mail I get on this website (including yours)? I have never lost a single second of sleep over it because I know who I am and I don’t need anyone else to define my self-worth. I’m guessing you are going to respond that you don’t care about my opinion but but your backlog of comments on my site (under several different names) proves otherwise. You just aren’t funny and/or easy-going enough to be involved with a site like this. It’s not for you.

    Go be a mommy blogger and blog to other bored mommies about pillows and shorts and stop wasting your time arguing with me.

    Again, I don’t have many personalities.
    Also, you refuse to give me examples of how I am boring.
    Oh, the pillow. Yeah, let me give you the background on that.
    I was shopping at Nordstrom (still one of my favorite places to shop) in January and found a pillow that said “To heck with beauty sleep. I want skinny sleep”. My eldest daughter said “Mom, you could get skinny by sleeping? I had no idea”. I told her “No, hon, you can’t get skinny by sleeping. You have healthy sleep because it makes you healthy and strong. That pillow was meant to be kind of a joke, I think, and a terrible one at that”. I messaged Nordstrom and then a few days later, they said “We understand, Tracy, and are removing the pillow from our shelves”.
    My post was featured on BlogHer and The Huffington Post, and unfortunately, it brought out many internet trolls, saying that my children deserved to be taken away, that I am stupid, that I overprotect my children.
    But did you hear the part of the podcast where I talked about the stalker. I encourage you to listen to that one – it will explain why I am sensitive to plagiarism. Go to the 19-minute mark and keep listening until the 30 minute mark.

    Example of being boring: see above.

    Dearest Tracy, I’m not sure why you care so much about my opinion of you, especially because you think I am a horrible person. You obviously have fallen in love with me. It’s OK, I understand. It happens all the time. Look me up if you are ever in Hawaii.

    I love you!
