Tag: <span>Best Comment Ever</span>

A little back story first. My parents are away on holiday over the weekend my birthday falls on. So I got my card and presents today. Which was very nice. First up I got a voucher for a massage (took me by surprise that one) which I’ll save for after a stressful week at work.

The second part of my birthday was a bit more practical, and proves that if you moan about something enough…

Yup, they bought me a new lawnmower. No more flymo for me! In fact I’m kinda hoping it stays dry tomorrow so I can finish cutting the grass – what a turn around!

They didn’t actually have it when we were through in Dumbarton today, but told me I would be getting one, although it might need to be ordered (apparently no-one buys lawnmowers in October.. odd that…). So that was fine, I was expecting it during the coming week at some point.

But no, my parents are nothing if not slightly mental, and decided to try a different store and then drive over here to deliver it (about an hour drive). Nuts they are (but in a very very good and very much appreciated way!).

So, YAY for cylinder lawnmowers, and far too generous, if slightly loopy, parents. I do luv ’em.

Mind you, boo for Norway beating us 1-0, but well done Ireland for the result in Paris. Unlucky Wales, just not good enough I’m afraid. Yes, I have to admit that England did look a class apart. Ho hum.

Now, read on for the Best Comment Ever left on a blog. It’s inspired, possibly by medication…

I’d hate for anyone to miss this, so I thought I’d repost the following recently received comment (from the post below this one). I’ll let you all make your own judgement:

“Gordon”, You are a mess. Your imagination – it never ends. I have a horrific sleep disorder these days. I am constantly thinking… it is as if my thoughts just can’t be stopped or calmed down – only by a sleep med – not cool. Your photos I love. I currently own a Canon ZR70 digital video camcorder and a Nikon Coolpix 3100. I so wish I had the kind of time that you have! Your various writings and characters (personalities) are somethin’ else. I love to read. Problem: it is becoming a rather large one… my fiance knows I read your “stuff”. Well, I use to share it with him – like talk of the daily news, ya know. He wants me to discontinue reading all your web writings. I thought about saving the best(s) of your work on a jump drive. Maybe I will publish it, and accredit it to your real name when you are no longer with us. Yeah, I’ll be able to publish it… I’ll be loaded with – $$$$$$$$’s. I am getting a much better understanding of you… not like a want to meet you – I don’t think so… oh no, not a plan at all!!! I am a fan though… nonetheless. Take it for what it’s worth. My fiance, a man with superb intelligence, well known, with a law degree (making a wonderful debater)… he hates you. He doesn’t want me to give one itty bitty bit of attention to any of your “stuff”. I think he is angry now. He really hates you.

Who’d a thought!
