At some point in March 2010 on this blog

Karen said ...
"Yeah, Thom. Most blogs are just fun and games. Really, most don't amount to a hill of beans in the long run. I mean just look at your blog. Riddles and stuff. I have been there once. All we ended up doing is hurling insults at each other. And now Grandpa Jim will follow me and leave a brilliant comment, which in its odd way, he will think is an insult. And on and on and on. It just gets really boring. Well, I'm done leaving a comment rant. I have to get back to work"

Thom said ...
"Mahalo Doug I appreciate your comment. I do apologize if I have offended you or any of your regular readers in any way here. I'm very off beat and say what's on my mind and probably 99% of the time don't respond with the words that you use correctly but I just say what I feel. I can't make an apology for Karen. I think I do remember the comment she left and my response but I can't tell you word for word what it was all about but I do know she left a comment on my blog that I will respond in kind when something that she said is done. That being said I can't be bothered with pettiness like that."

"Thom, it's pretty hard for me to see how you could have offended anyone here. Be well and enjoy the steady breeze blowing harmlessly across Hawai'i. The only rules for language usage on this blog are: avoid explicit descriptions and no profanity cruder than 'son of a bitch.' You're good."

Today--->@Boobsquid ---> Be well and enjoy the steady breeze blowing harmlessly across Hawai'i. XOXOXO

First thing I thought of was impotence. And you know what, I don't give a hoot.

I hafta go to a staff meeting, and I'm hoping to be invisible...

quilly said...

You know, I can relate to this word. Some days more than others. This week I seem to be in short supply of mercy or grace. No doubt next week I will feel kinder.

Jim said...

Head in a suitcase?
A show of no remorse!
Impenintent? I don't know enough about this word to use it properly.
..
Perhaps the word is too long for me.

Good morning Grandpa Jim.

Doug said...

Mo'a, certainly not voters.

Pia, two more and you'll have a 3WW all set up.

TLP, I don't know yet, but I suspect nobody is more penitent than the impotent.

Actonbell, you won't be but if you're lucky you'll feel invisible. My advice: Wear sunglasses.

Quilly, I think it comes and goes with most of us. Even Jesus had a temper.

Cooper, that was a well-met editorial standard. I have seen you contrite, only once that I can recall and if I could find the archives on your blog, I could find it.

For me, yeah, Bear.

Jim, no need to humble yourself.

Thom said...

I can't wait to HEAR all about that HUGE barbeque when you, Susan and the kids at were at Charlene's house. You looked like quite the HIPSTER in your shorts!
