Sweetest Comment Evar

This post isn't all about a nice comment I got, I just couldn't think of a title. For now it's just the same old round up post it's always been on a Monday, and you'll have to wait until I get to the post in question for the comment. Don't worry, it won't take long.

Tuesday was a post that actually never got a title. It is a mystery. Well actually it's just that I forgot to give it one, and when I realised it didn't have one I thought to myself "Well, it's untitled now. Plus I can't really think of one." It was a classic from me, with confusion and conflict all over the place. I guess the simplest way to sum it up is that it was about how we can choose to hurt a person now to save them a later heartache because we care about them too much, and then the second part was about how that's stupid because it's not up to you to decide that, and sometimes people are willing to bet on your good side, and that you won't hurt them.

Wednesday was another two parter post. The first part was about how Jessica had stayed the night before, and we did what we always do (eat pizza and get drunk) and the second part was about an old friend of mine called Holly. We used to talk all the time a few years ago. It was also back during my nocturnal phase so it didn't matter she was six hours behind, she still sometimes went to bed before I "did. As much as I would love to fawn over this post, this is the post that had the uber sweet comment on. I told her about the blog, and about this post, and she read it herself. She left a comment as a guest and now I'm going to share that comment with yall.

"Mark, I never left you. I just wasn't able to get in touch with you. You have always been a true friend. I have never had to lie, or impress you. I will be going off to college next year, and hopefully I get in RWCMD, and be able to spend all the time I can with you! And maybe even Jessica, if she likes me (: You are a great person Mark, I will never leave you in spirit"


Ain't she just the sweetest? <3 span="span">


Thursday  was my latest podacst. Which is now broken. Even though it didn't get many comments, it still got 16 hits so I guess people are listening but not commenting, or just downloading and listening in their own time. I'd write about it but like I said it's broke. I had to reupload it so that I could share it with Holly.


Friday  I weighed in on the Chick-Fil-A situation. Like a lot of other people. I was taking a stance they weren't though. One I thought would get me hatemail. It didn't :( I'm beginning to think I can just say anything now and people will agree with me. Though I do have some more controversial views that people won't agree with. They aren't agreeing with my view necessarily, just my arguments. I can say out there things because I can back up what I say. So what was my stance? Basically I just took the middle ground, and stood for true freedom of speech. I told people to stop attacking Chick-Fil-A, and to stop using the situation for their own personal gain. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, and you should attack their arguments, not the people who make them. At the very least, you can ignore them, and have faith that your side will win in the end. When people are afraid to say what they think in case they get attacked for it, that's not free speech. Anyway for more on it, just read the post.


Saturday I posted another chapter in Immortal Space where I revealed Geoff's (current) age and why he spells his name with a G, and not Jeff, like most Americans do. 


Last but not least we have Sunday which was a few scenes from the good old fashioned British comedy Red Dwarf. Which I guess isn't as old fashioned any more because it's coming back for a new series soon. 


Well that's that for now. But before I go I do have a quick announcement to make. Like most bloggers, I am about to embark on a holiday. I will be gone all of next week, from Saturday. I hope to do some writing while I'm gone, like I did last year, and I will schedule a weeks worth of posts. Which is something I haven't done in months. I know I'm going to get bored, and load up google reader on my phone to read blogs, but it won't let me comment on them. So, while I may be reading, I will not be commenting while I'm gone. I'll also still be around properly until then of course. 


One downside of going away is that it makes me realise how few clothes I have.

  1. I'm glad that you got that comment buddy. Honestly I don't think there's anything better than hearing for somebody that you used to care for that they still think about you and I'm so pleased you got to experience this. Great round-up as usual too mate, it's been a good week for you.

  8. That is the sweetest comment ever!! Holly is a special person, Mark. I'm so glad you two reconnected! Have a great holiday, you deserve it.

  9. I love hearing from old friends, knowing they never forget you, even if they got swept up in other things. Warms the black, crusted spot where my heart used to be, it does.

    Also, we as bloggers have never gotten hate mail either, even for some of the outrageous stuff we've posted. I DO think you can post just about anything you want without getting hate mail. We should test that one day.

  10. That comment from Holly is really sweet! It's always a great (and to me, nostalgic) feeling when one reconnects with an old and dear friend. It seems like your week was awesome; I hope this week's even better! :)

  15. the comment from holly is so sweet! This roundup was very useful for me since I've been gone on holiday (well, I wouldn't consider it a holiday) for about a week I think (?) and I haven't had much computer near me. Anyways, where are you heading off to if you don't mind mean asking?

    Have fun on your holiday!

  17. I feel like I was lied to after reading that title and first paragraph. Now I don't know what to believe in.
