First of all, thank you everyone for the well-wishes and congratulations! We are having an awesome trip – though it has taken a turn for the comic.
We stopped in Jackson, MS, to visit some friends where I erupted into hives. By the time we made New Orleans, I was MISERABLY ITCHY. We hung out in NOLA for two days and saw some sites through a lot of rain and Cortaid. *grin* I finally gave in and took some Benadryl – 8 hours later I woke up and all was good. Just in time to leave!
I felt great for about an hour and a half. Then, as I was leaning over to pick up my bag, something in my back sproinged. I’ve pulled a muscle, at least that is what we are thinking. It has complicated some of our honeymoon plans, lemme tell ya!
Still, all that aside, it is a great trip and we are having a fantastic time. It’s really surreal to refer to each other as husband or wife. But we like it a lot so far.
In ridiculous commenter to this site news, in the midst of all the congratulatory comments, I’ve gotten these two comments:
Promoting that it is okay to be fat, is distroying the country. You are a terrorist. I bet you even give money to child killers.
Well, one can only hope that one day Homeland security will take care of people like you.
People people need to get off their lazy asses and go to a gym
If someone wants to lose weight, LET THEM LOSE WEIGHT!!! & leave them in peace.
You’re being as bigoted as the fat bigots you hate so much.
The first is from email@example.com which is one of the most ridiculous domain names ever. Of course it isn’t real. To leave a real email address would indicate jeremiah was something other than what he is – a troll!
I do love that he is falling back on the exact same tired old argument of “fat people are lazy.” It really warms my heart to know that people who hate fat people can’t seem to come up with anything other than this patently false doggerel. It really illustrates how inflexible their reasoning is and how narrow their viewpoint. Too damn bad it isn’t true!
As for the second, well, Lon from firstname.lastname@example.org seems to lack fundamental reading comprehension. Because no one is threatening the rights of dieters.
This goes back to that “unprivilege” discussion. If people want to pursue diets, that is, once again, their prerogative. But I don’t have to value that decision above my own comfort and peace. I don’t have to participate in discussion about it or engage in it myself. In fact, I can discuss how damaging a practice it is freely – and with no remorse. None of that endangers the rights of dieters.
Man, I wish trolls would come up with some new arguments. These are getting full on tediously BORING!
