Oh The Drama!

Hey y'all.

I was just doing that... Funny. Is this what makes a blog especially interesting, then? Is this some kind of joint mutual publicity venture? ;)

B said...

I don't want to be critical, but if you want to dish it out you should be able to take it right? If that is the case I just don't get why they are up in arms.

Because of this fabulous drama I dub thee, Royal Pot Stirrer! ;)

Love Bites said...

Ummm, ditto.

For starters, we didn't critique THIS MOM, this reluctant housewife. We critiqued ANOTHER apparently reluctant housewife, who by her own admission, spends a lot of time sitting on her ever-expanding ass and blogging. This context was drawn from the reviewee's blog.

I'm not really sure why Reluctant Housewife has so personalized the criticism of ANOTHER MOM, and attempted to apply it to all of y'all.

Maybe SHE just likes the drama.

As for us, we aren't up in arms, we're having fun. Didn't you invite us over here? I mean, you commented and wrote about us. Isn't that an invitation?

Love Bites said...

p.s. B, I don't want to be critical, but when you make the statement, "I don't want to be critical but..." it's a dead tipoff that you do, indeed, want to be critical. It's a passive aggressive way of avoiding looking critical while being critical.

Hope that helps.

Sarah said...

I was going to ask the same thing.

Why on earth do you and your readers have your panties in such tight knots over some other blogs review?

Love Bites said...

One might ask the same question. Why do the self-identified mommybloggers have THEIR panties in such a twist over our blog review site's review of a truly brainless mommyblog?

Do you put yourselves into the category of braindead mommybloggers? And if so, why? There are plenty of bright, articulate well-written moms who blog about their words without narrowly self-identifying with only the fact that they have functioning vaginas.

Reluctant Housewife said...

They don't. Just me.

Yup.

Love Bites said...

BUT WHY?

Stupidity is a CHOICE!

Reluctant Housewife said...

Why what? Why are my panties in a bunch over the review?

When I was a kid I was always upset when I saw someone getting picked on. I guess I just tend to over-identify, to be honest.

B said...

Love Bites, you don't know me, so you have no clue about who I am or who I'm not. I am NOT passive aggressive, anyone who knows me knows THAT. And I wasn't wanting to be critical, but since people get their panties in a knot over piles of NOTHING in bloggyland we have to cover our butts here like never before. So thanks for assuming I'm a passive aggressive gal, but better luck tagging the next one.

Love Bites said...

RH:

Do you insert yourself into the fun when the couple next door dons the fur handcuffs and breaks out the paddle?

Love Bites said...

B:

I'm not assuming anything, it's patently obvious. I can't help it if your verbal cues are a dead giveaway.

B said...

RH - your new house guests suck. Next time don't invite them to the party. I may be totally passive about that and all, but I'm a pansy that way. I'll be back in a couple days when the cows fly south for the winter.

Mary G said...

What B said. There seems to be a huge amount of agressive agression against passive aggression going on.

No question, this is funny.

I do hope you keep doing your own thing, my friend, 'cause I enjoy it.

Love Bites said...

Oh, Mary, I'm not passive aggressive. I'm just 100% aggressive. ;)

Reluctant Housewife said...

Is there a compliment in here somewhere?

If I do insert myself in the neighbour's naughty fun - you'd respect me for it wouldn't you?

Mom said...

Arrrrgh, your blog has been pirated by Mom at Life...EXAGGERATED! Come see why...

Elaine A. said...

Woah, that was a lot of comments to read, both on your original post and this one. Y'all are friends now sorta though, right? hee hee.

I think you were good to keep it all "light." This blog certainly ain't boring lately... ; )

Love Bites said...

RH,

That's a question only you can answer. It's not whether I would respect you more for inserting yourself into the neighbors' dirty fun, but whether you'd respect yourself.

So, would you?

Love Bites said...

And, that piratey thing? You really need to cut that shit out if you want to be taken seriously as a mommyblogger.

*snort.*
*guffaw.*

Jennifer said...

Awww, feels just like highschool all over again.
RH I enjoy your blog.

It is becoming very obvious who has a problem letting it go and walking away.

Love Bites said...

Oh, Jennifer, that really huwt. :( You REALLY smacked me down and put me in my place. I bet, confidentially, that you feel all bad ass right now.

ghost of keywork said...

Um, that pirate shit would get you shanked quick by my fiancee.

Reluctant Housewife said...

You don't like the pirate? Go tell the pirate. That pirate ain't me.

ghost of keywork said...

B: Yes you are. And yes, LB does suck, and from what I know so does Sarah. I think they both swallow as well.

Jennifer: Stick around and I'll make it feel even more like high school for you.

RH: I've stooped low enough already this week, I'll pass.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Ghost for someone who's lowered himself so thoroughly it's kind of weird that you're still here.

Aren't you bored yet?

ghost of keywork said...

RH: I'm just showing off at this point.

Sarah said...

Ghost, I do suck and I do swallow. I dont see the relevance though.

Other than making LB and I pretty much awesome(er).

Wait, was that the point?

Reluctant Housewife said...

Well shucks.

I thought it was because my passive aggressive moron tendencies were so fascinating to you that you were unable to look away.

Now I'm disappointed.

Love Bites said...

It's not YOU, RH, who is passive aggressive. I think we ALL know who that is at this point in time. You're the moron. Get it straight.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Oh okay.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Moron. I'll have to get a t-shirt.

Love Bites said...

I have a t-shirt already. It says "bad example."

Reluctant Housewife said...

My t-shirt will say I'm with stupid and then, instead of an arrow pointing straight up, I'll have a picture of a hand flipping the bird. It still points up, but not in a quiet shut up kind of way.

Love Bites said...

I don't think i'm going to let you buy that shirt. Instead, I think you should try on the one that says "Opinionated bitch" and see how you like it. Just for a day or two.

ghost of keywork said...

LB: for a minute there, I really thought you were going to go with 'whining cunt'. Shame.

Love Bites said...

One doesn't always have to take the low road, just because it's there, keymeister. You can ALWAYS go there, if you have to. But you don't have to START there.

Reluctant Housewife said...

Ghost - cunt, yes. whining, no.

LB - in the spirit of all honesty I'm not sure I could pull that off.

Love Bites said...

Surely you jest.

ghost of keywork said...

LB: Maybe she does have a sense of humor after all.
