As regular readers would know, Darlene Taylor refused to continue funding her own blog a few months ago, and has instead instituted a cheap version of same by e-mailing people her pseudo-would-be-posts. 🙂
“Why should she cheapness be rewarded”, cry otherwise-would-be-readers-of-her-blog, and I have to admit I agree with them, but nonetheless, I thought that it would be nice to offer Darlene a platform to broadcast her e-mails masquerading as blog posts on my own blog as I enjoyed reading hers.
Enjoy part 1 below of Darlene’s non-blog blog. Of course, Darlene’s views are strictly her own 🙂
Given that there’s been a tidal wave of requests (hyperbole intended) for my blog to be resurrected from the dark pits of hell (no hyperbole); I’d thought I’d write something that might be regarded as bloggy. Alas, since Australia Princess is still on hiatus, there’s nothing to report on that very important score. If anyone knows what Kylie Booby is doing now, please do not hesitate to let me know. Anyway, let’s fill you in on a bit of Darlene. Well, I enrolled in a Diploma of Professional Writing and Editing, but found that the only subject available this semester was “Introduction to Computers”. Suffice to say, I have deferred until next year, but will be doing a drawing class to ease some of my mammoth intellectual curiosity and that crap. Also, like the mad mummy of an even madder pussy cat, I will be doing an afternoon course in “Everything Your Cat Would Like You To Know”. Jess is having some major dental issues (she could be gummy girl soon) but is settled and responding well to the pheromone diffuser I purchased from the vet. As a tortoiseshell, she’s a little timid. She’s my little Aussie battler, no worries mate. Apart from that, I had a short and interesting relationship with the Baha’i Faith. It was quite engaging and there’s good stuff to be found in it (e.g. it supports equality of women and opposes racism), but it has some unfortunate literalist opinions and authoritarian tendencies. Sure, all faiths have these, but from what I can tell these days you can whinge and moan about, for example, the Anglican Church but still turn up on Sunday and be a part of the community. The Baha’is have booted people out for being “covenant breakers”. At my new digs in North Fitzroy, we don’t have a television set so I’ve no idea what’s been going on with aspiring models, Big Brother contestants and other pressing matters (see earlier reference to Australian Princess). HELP!!!!! End of pretend blog post.
