Two things:

Sorry the font is so small. I can't get it adjusted for the life of me.

Also, new posts at noon and 6 again. I know we didn't need them today but I'll give it a few more days to see if we need to readjust.

Goodnight!

Nite - Tara! I got the remote and watching AI :-D
Hope your birds get through the night!

Nite AP!

Tara. said...

Interesting fact about the breathing though the butt.

Goodnight!

SW! You did not spill it was Bon Jovi as guest...I could hug you, or just nod quite a bit at the puter screen::: What a nice suprise to see them!

Robin said...

Hmmm...the owner of the "Hell Hath No Fury" post writes WON (in all caps)...Tina writes WON in all caps...

Wendy always writes it all lower-case: won.

Curious. No?

KaytieJ said...

Hi Robin!
I am confused over all the alphabet soup going on. Who is WON or won? I have not seen them here. Maybe they have and I missed 'em. Sorry I can't help on that.

Not sure if you saw my earlier post, but the wreaths you made are adorable!

I know you like gardening - wanted to share my hostas this year are HUGE and gorgeous. They are not in bloom, yet, though. And my deep red Rhododendrons are just now starting to open. I love this time of year!

Tina said...

Robin...really, come on. I know you are friends with WON but I have always written WON in all caps.

I find it funny you seem to have to defend WON every time she gets herself in a pickle with people. I guess anyone who has ever written WON in all caps is now a suspect....really...can't you come up with something better than that?

My IP address is what it is and cannot be changed...so WON will have to dream up another story, or tall tale. I find it really funny that someone who is collecting disability such as WON...sure doesn't seem like she has a disablity and can sure get around the Internet just fine. Maybe WON can find herself a job in private detective work and she would no longer need to be on disablity. Just saying....

Nice try Robin or should I say WON....I guess you are her voice now since CPTwife isn't doing her dirty work any longer.

Good morning daisies. Thanks for the soap website Kaytie - my little one loves to craft.

EL - when we were kids and said "I'm bored" my mom instructed us to clean our rooms :)

My name is Luka I live on the second floor. I live upstairs from you. Yes, I think you've seen me before.

Just CK said...

Sorry for that - just needed to vent a bit.

Margaret said...

Sorry, may name is still Luca :)

Just CK said...

I thought you were Luka?

Are you trying to hide now, with the Luca spelling?

Bye!

tumbleweedgirl said...

on the subj of IPs, they can change, unless you're using and have paid for a dedicated IP address. you tend to float around a block of numbers assigned by your ISP.

O:

robin's was a simple statement. i noticed the same thing and found it odd, notable. it stood out, because caps stand out.

tumbleweedgirl said...

and just to be clear:

i've looked at an email from tina and it's a different IP than tina stated and that won stated on gmwop. so to me, i think tracking IPs from emails is a little bit more involved than i realized too.

because IPs can change!

Ok. WELL. I was *going to say "sorry for not checking in last nigt, mom & Chris & I rented a Glee DVD from blockbuster and had a good old fashioned slumber party".

But........*clearly........"not here" was the place to be.

I mean GEEZ. What the aitch IS all this? I know I'm late to the party and have never been a part of any of the communities (or whatever they are) routinely mentioned. But as an outsider looking in, I feel like I can offer a couple observations from a unique perspective, so here they are.

1st........I hate to invoke the Sheeple Creed.....but if you don't like the Daisies or this blog, I don't think anyone would tackle you on your way out.

2nd......I have read both blogs in question and also gleaned quite alot from all the posts that have flown fast & furious in the last 24ish hours.....and while I
still don't know what happened with whom in what year to whom ever's aol account......this is what I DO know....
Getting busted via ironclad IP tracking (not web based email types which as twg has mentioned can change but the kind that I *think is totally unique to YOU) and then saying, oh I was just 'hired' to open anonymous emails, they actually have "a crack forensic investigator". Ummm did you really just say that they have an expert in forensic technology yet they needed YOU to open "anonymous emails"??

Yeah. That sounds about as believable as Lawrence Taylor's new defense for rape. (has now changed from "I didn't do it" to "well I *only masturbated, I didn't actually have sex") I believe that the person who obviously authored FWOP just "happened" to "only" open anonymous emails as much as I believe that Lawrence Taylor drove to another state and spent $300 for the IzMck special.

He violated that 16 yr old girl and GM or what *ever the aitch name she goes by wrote and is the sole proprieter of FWOP. Period.

If there was a "group" of 5 people including (apparently) a paralegal and a "crack forensic investigator".......when "they" said they wouldn't be posting any more & the blog had been turned over to the authorities.....the posts would not have started again the moment *she was personally offended.

I really don't care who did what at this point. I just wish everyone would take down any "bash blogs" and play nice. It seems like some people were literally dragged into this who had nothing to do with any history or bad blood between the alphabet soup of blogs. Seeing Taiya, a sweetly compassionate woman who is about to give birth, being victimized.....along with her child.....that makes FWOP absolutely irredeemable to me, no matter what kind of pretend mission statement they (and by "they" I mean SHE) have/has.

I'll go back to minding my own business but I had to get it out of my system=)

Muliebrity said...

So what did you think of Glee, Elisabeth?

Robin in Montana said...

Good morning, all you hookers! And Chris! Although you might be a hooker, too, for all I know ...

Gotta go back and read last night.

Deb said...

Hi Daisies - this is an FYI. I am no longer a part of SIP. Here is my parting comment:

Deb said:
After a lot of consideration, I am letting you all know that I will not be participating here anymore. I have enjoyed “meeting” many of you over the months and do consider some of you friends. We’ve had good times, for sure. But this environment right now is toxic and I want no part of it.

The false accusations, the unnecessary banning, using friends, the site meter checking, and paranoia. If this is what a private blog is like, I want no part of it. I’ll play in the public forum and take my chances, thankyouverymuch.

I am disappointed for sure, in a lot of things. Wendy has yet to respond to what she did with Michelle. You purposely let innocent people get hurt in all of this. I am tired of the games, especially with what happened to Michelle and Erin. It is unacceptable. This is not how friends should be treated.

I have more I’d love to say, but I’ll leave on a graceful note. Good luck to you all.

You can find me at OD, or contact me via my blog or at

landk116 at gmail dot com

If this is deleted by the blog administrator, feel free to e-mail me, I have it copied and will probably post it at OD as well.

Robin in Montana said...

Okay, read back really quickly.

First off, SW, the blonde guy on AI is not 'hot' any more. I kind of thought he was at first, but those goofy-ass faces he makes with that (what my Mom would call) 'weak chin' and the vacant, staring blue eyes? Ick. Okay, that was harsh.

I told Kelly the other day that that boyfriend of Crystal's is a dork and she will dump his ass once she gets out of Bumfuck, Nowhere and meets people who "get" her and get her talent. He is a doof. And the stars and stripes balloon pants? With the semi-hard-on? Not working for me. :-D Anyway, Kelly comes home last night and says he read some interview or something where Crystal had said, in regards to her duet with Lee, that she has a "musical crush" on him. I said "mmmmmm hmmmmmm".

Southern Woman said...

Morning all! I’m off to a bit of a late start this morning. I slept in a little, then was out of milk so went to the grocery store before work, which I never do but now I think I should do more often. I hate crowded grocery stores, and the corner grocery was deserted this morning. Then I had to water the plants in my new front beds. Some daisies are budding and that makes me excited! So didn’t drag myself into work until almost 9:30, but that’s okay. I’m not really in the running for employee of the year anyway, so who cares?

Catching up on (meager) comments:

Tara said: “Was glad to see Michael go home, but I'm worried that Casey will somehow weasel his way in to the Top 2 with Crystal and that would really piss me off. I love Lee and Crystal.” Tara, I’m terrified about that possibility! I intend to call a million times on Tuesday for Crystal!

AP, can turtles really breath through their butts?

Morning Robin and Tina!

Mulie, you saw Larry Birkhead on Today Show? Did it look to you like he’s having makeup put on that poor child? :-(

Elisabeth, I hadn’t heard about Lawrence’s defense. Interesting.

I don’t mind a little blog drama, and I think a lot of the recent discussion is healthy. But I do mourn the fact that the drama is keeping some of our daisies away. If people stay away out of fear of the terrorists, the terrorists win. I hope that soon all of our lost daisies will come home.

And I hate I missed CK’s rant.

Southern Woman said...

Robin, I agree that blonde dude sometimes looks doofy, but he had me during "Mrs. Robinson." Just saying.

Wouldn't a real life Lee/Crystal duet be something? I was surprised when I saw who her boyfriend is. I pictured her with a cool looking hippie dude. Dump him, girl! You can do better!

Deb, welcome to the I-left-SIP-without-getting-banned club! It's a small but distinguished group. :-)

Jill said...

"If people stay away out of fear of the terrorists, the terrorists win. "

This made me chuckle and I can't explain why.

I'm just tired of the bullshit. I teach high school, I'm not *in high school.

And Deb, <3 you.

Robin in Montana said...

SW - I agree with you about Mrs. Robinson. He's had some good songs. I just don't want to look at his bizarre face.

and CK had a rant? WHere? What happened? Dammit, I miss all the good stuff. I need to get rid of the kids and the man, they're stifling me!

(Disclaimer for the reading comprehension impaired who are lurking: that was a JOKE. I'm not getting rid of the kids or the man. I don't think.)

Anonymous said...

Jill, OMG I laughed too!!

Just picturing SW, who in my mind's eye is in a smart little skirt suit with a polished chignon and sarah-palin-but-not-douchey glasses.......thinking of her all dramatic like, saying "THE TERRORISTS WIN!!" made me laugh so hard I darn near had to add "mild incontinence" to my list of morning accomplishments.

Southern Woman said...

Jill, when you read that as "Deb, I am less than three of you," it doesn't sound as sweet. Just an FYI. :-)

Southern Woman said...

LOL Elisabeth!

Deb said...

Aw, thanks Jill and SW.

I feel so, what's the word SW, distinguished? Sweet!

And I listen to ESPN radio every day and had not hear that Lawrence Taylor info. Interesting.

Jerk.

Jill said...

SW, yes in hindsight maybe that was a poor choice of characters.

Robin in Montana said...

Well, just masturbating on her as opposed to actually having sex with her would be *so much less traumatic, you know. @@

Deb said...

"sarah-palin-but-not-douchey glasses"

Laugh-out-Loud!

Shannon said...

All I have to say about the continuing she said she said going on right now is the....SERIOUSLY WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH?

It would be nice to see both WoP sites just go the hell away....thus far I am sorry but both have gone too far and have left too many bodies in their wake.

Am I some sort of heinous cyber bully? Maybe to some. Have I said things about peeps that I have issues with? Yes I have. Do I hide or go to other places to air those issues I have? Nope. It is either here or on my blog.

FWoP was started by people who were pissed off but while they throw out their accusations at everyone else for all of their believed misdeeds they went to places that most everyone on this site has not gone. They crossed lines that were in their own words vile.

Dont know about the rest of you but I have never gone looking for and posting someone else's home, ip, family, work, or anything else.

GMWoP was started out of revenge and quickly went down the same path. And then sat by and chuckled as people here on this site were thrown under the bus.

Sorry but I dont see anyone from FWoP or GMWoP any differently. They are all people who seriously need to go outside and play in the sunshine for a little while because they have WAAAAYYYYY too much time on their hands.

Not everyone is going to get along with everyone else....it is not possible. And that goes for the "real" world as well as the internet. Get over it. If Shannon takes issue with things that Tina or GM or JM or Kathryn have said or done and says something about it SO WHAT??!! Who gets to say what others get to say or feel? Guess what I got fed up with JM....I stopped reading her a while ago along with her WoP site.

I have a mother and I am 38 years old and I dont need anyone to pretend to be my mother on the internet thank you very much this is my place of escape to get away from the rather predictable world I live in. I have formed friendships with people over the course of the last year and that is what keeps me coming back.

Now that is it....my rant over. Quit pointing fingers and trying to place blame it is truly juvenile and a lot of people who are not even involved are getting stomped in the process.

Shannon said...

Sorry for the novel

Southern Woman said...

Morning Shannon! Thanks for not letting the terrorists win!

Robin in Montana said...

Shannon -- all I want to know is, is it or is it not possible to regain your virginity? :-D

Trudy said...

RiM, I just woke up my daughter from laughing so loud.

Southern Woman said...

LOL Robin!

Shannon said...

Robin I think you can regain your virginity but unfortunately it means being celibate for more then 20 years.

Jill said...

Well, we know RiM can't go that long without worship.

Robin in Montana said...

Jill - I was asking for a "friend." I have no desire to regain my virginity. But even more *happy for me, I don't need to concern myself with it, since worship is available for me at all times, unlike my poor "friend." :-D

Margaret said...

Shannon - well said!

Shannon said...

TY Margaret

Deb said...

RiM - mmmm, hmmmph.

Shannon - agreed.

Shannon said...

The funny thing with regaining virginity is that my husband and I both have mothers who could technically be considered virgins again :)

They both got comfortable with the single life and though they wouldnt mind a man coming over and having a relationship neither of them want the guy to live with them LOL they dont want the hassle of that part of the deal :)

Muliebrity said...

Hunter (2 year old) just looked at this site, pointed to the little border daisies and said, "Look at flower. How cute!" about 30 times and at one point Logan thought his baby sister should be named "Daisy."

just_roberta said...

umm... HI! How is everyone?

I spent the last couple of days reading back after I came across all of you again. I am not even sure what happened with SIP. Just one day, I did not have access. It was fine since I was focused on real life issues at that time and enjoyed spending time day dreaming about the future.

Hope all is well and I am off to read more resumes.

Tara. said...

Morning y'all.

SW: I feel torn about what to do next week. Do I vote a bunch for Lee to make sure weird guy goes home? Or do I just vote for my very fave (Crystal) and hope for the best as far as Lee is concerned?
Dilemma!

Morning Ro! I'm glad you're here.

Tara. said...

Oh. And I hate to ask. But what is "Hell Hath No Fury"?

Creepy Mommy said...

just roberta! Wow, I *wondered* what happen to you!

It gives me a really good feeling seeing everyone here express their feelings so calmly and clearly, something that has been missing from a few sites, and stand up for themselves, saying they will no longer allow a few bullies in the midst to ruin their online relationships and expirences.

And to all those out there who felt like they didn't fit in so they have to get all Meanie MckMeanerson with that gals here, I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm sorry you're so pissed off, but I will no longer allow the fear of being called out BY A STRANGER effect how I engage on these here interwebs.

I like to have fun, I like to drink wine, I like to chat with the daisy girls when I can. If you don't like it, well, that's your problem.

It says on the sidebar that anyone is welcome. I still believe that to be true. If you want to just read, than read and know that when you're ready to engage or come across a topic that interests you, everyone here is always down for a good conversations and a hearty laugh.

End rant.

Wassup!?!?

Tara. said...

New Post!

Sandy said...

Good Morning Daiyland. Miss me! ::dusting the dirt off and emerging from the hidey hole:: Do you mind if I pull up my lawn chair and crack a Schlitz?

First and foremost, I would like to apologize if my words have offended ANYONE. It was not my intent and I will be more mindful of my words.

As Shannon so gracefully said, this too is my outlet. I have met some really wonderful ladies here and at other forums. This is my escape from the things that weigh heavy on my mind on a daily basis.

It's quite apparent that people have gotten hurt by words, websites, and the internet in general. I am truly sorry if that has happened to you just like I am truly sorry that it has happened to me. I think it's time to stop the tit for tat, you killed my dog...I'll kill your cat.

So I think it's time we all just pulled up a lawn chair, adjust our tube tops, crack a Schlitz and chat.
