Still alive out here

Thank you everyone, for your concern about Zoe!

She and I are both still alive--I've been fighting a lovely stomach virus (thank you, Dad, for giving it to me), and she's been recuperating from her surgery. We've both been sleeping a lot.

A much more amusing and detailed post about Zoe after her surgery will be forthcoming, hopefully tonight, as soon as Chris goes out and buys new batteries for my camera. Yes, we have pictures. =)

No one cares. Why bore us with this drivel? And don't blame your illness on your father.

Jodi said...


Most of us care, anonymous. If you don't, stop reading the blog. (It's like people have to be rocket scientists to figure that out.)

Jenny, may I boldly suggest that you disallow anonymous comments again? That way people like anonymous 8:33 and Jack (who are probably just the same troll) will have to reveal themselves if they want to be rude to you.

Michelle Moran said...

I agree.
And feel better!

Michelle Moran said...

Ooops - that is, I agree with Jodi. I can't fathom someone who takes the effort to read your blog, type in the word verification and then post if they're only going to post self-important, negative drivel.

One more vote for banning anonymous bastards . . . er, comments.

Glad to hear Zoe's feeling well, and sorry to hear you're not, Jenny.


Jenny Rappaport said...

I am feeling much better, after sleeping for most of Saturday. =)

And I agree, Jodi, michelle, and tawna... I'm disallowing anonymous comments again. I'm sick of trolls turning up on this blog.

And yes, anonymous, I did catch the stomach virus from my Dad; he's said so himself. He was sick with the same exact thing, last week. Families pass around illnesses, especially if they actually hang out with each other, which is what my family does. Deal.

I think there's one or two disgruntled anons out there who ake all the agent blog rounds and post insulting crap like that.

Kelly Swails said...

Seriously. Isn't that the point of a blog, to sometimes post drivel? It's your drivel, dammit, and it's interesting to you and your friends.

*Don't Feed the Trolls*

Turning off anonymous comments is a good idea, but you might also want to get a stat counter, which will tell you where the posts originate. That way, when the myopic nitwits query you in the future (which is bound to happen, because the law of karma works that way), you can send them a nice form rejection - maybe with their own words jotted on it.

I, too, am glad Zoe is feeling better and sorry you aren't.

Now, now, let's not be too hard on Jack and his fellow trolls - they must be miserable enough, being trolls and all. It can't possibly be fun to live with such anger all the time.

That said, I agree that troll & co should go slither back beneath the rock from whence they came. Anonymous commenters don't have the guts to put a name to their words, so I wouldn't put much stock in those words.

Hope you're feeling better (I've been sick, and blamed my kids - how horrible of me!) and that Zoe's doing ok as well. Remember, spring is just around the corner (despite the 2" of snow that fell last night, I haven't given up hope!)

I have yet to find a blog in which every post the author made riveted me to the screen. Some things interest me more than others, and some of the things I find interesting may be things you couldn't care less about (such as cats and Jenny's health, apparently). But this is her blog, and she can write what she pleases. Nobody is making you read this. This blog gives you FREE insight into the publishing world, and you're going to complain because on her own blog, Jenny wants to write something of importance to her? That's kind of weird.

I would have loved to see Zoe dressed up in her onesie. How's it going with the cone?
