The world is a super strange place and some of the people in it are strange too. If you have read this blog, you know that most of what I write is not serious. Most of it is humorous and most of the people who read it find it humorous. Sometimes I write with sarcasm, sometimes I point out things that to most normal people, are ridiculous or wasteful. Sometimes I write about things that I find annoying or funny or hypocritical or lacking in common sense. Sometimes I tell stories about my life. Most all of it is done with humor.
If you have a comment about something I have written, I would love to hear from you whether you agree with me or not. It’s ok if you don’t agree, that is what makes the world interesting. If we all agreed, the world would be a boring place, full of Stepford people who march in lock-step with one another, creating a scary science fiction like existence. What I DON’T want to hear and what I will NOT acknowledge or approve for publication on my blog is cruelty, rudeness, profanity or ignorance. If you disagree with me, by all means, let me know, but do it with decency and respect. If you have no sense of humor, if you can dish it out but not take it, if you are crude, rude, mean, small-minded or ignorant, don’t read this blog. WordPress and the world, is a big place, my little corner of it shouldn’t dominate your thoughts or cause your blood pressure to rise. In fact, if I write about something remotely controversial, within the first sentence or two, I warn you and if you don’t want to hear what I have to say, go away.
That is the beautiful thing about freedom. When you are free, you have choices. If I choose to write about shoes or wasting millions of taxpayer dollars studying the already known fact that radiation spreads, invades bodies and is bad and I think that is a wasteful and less than intelligent use of time and money, I’m gonna do it. If you don’t like what I write, you don’t have to read it. Ever. No one is forcing you to sign on to this website and read my ramblings.
So, now that I’ve laid a few ground rules for visiting Hollytopia, I plan to get back to regular topics. My family has had a rough time this summer, dealing with relocating my mother to a nursing home. It’s been hard and I haven’t had a lot of time for writing, but things are calming down now and I’m baaaaaack. I’m gonna get back to voicing my observations and opinions. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of my kitchen. If you want an occasional chuckle or a voice who is saying something that you think, but wouldn’t say out loud, come on along for the ride.
Be kind to one another and lighten up for God’s sake :-)
