IMM vlog and a call to Madame Anonymous

I haven't done an In My Mailbox in a pretty long time, so I thought I'd whip out the ol' webcam and give it a go.

Also, you will find a rather long speech about the recent slew of Anonymous comments on my YA Thanksgiving and retaliation posts. Feel free to tell me my nose looks big, cos, trust me, I know.

Shut your mouth, Erika.

hi dannie, i just want to write a comment in support of you. yesterday i read the beginning of the anonymous comments debacle with amusement, i found it really funny that you had attracted the attention of a huffy chicken. but as the comments continued i started to change from being amused to being alarmed - the comments just got more and more venemous. i think you have attracted the attention of what we in the business (i'm a psych) like to call a 'nutcase'. your vlog post shows that you are handling this well, but i know when i was 15 i would've been outraged, but also been hurt by these types of comments. so here's what i think: clearly you are an intelligent, thoughtful and articulate young woman who puts alot of her time towards persuing interesting and valuable pastimes, such as blogging. unfortunately you have attracted the attention of a adult who is too angry about the world not being the way they want it to be and looks around for innocent people to direct their vitriol towards. they should know better than to publicly (though anonymously - setting up a bebo account to comment from is still anonymity) attempt to discredit and humiliate a teenager. right, that's my two cents. i love your blog and your writing style and in my opinion if you represent the youth of today then the future is in good hands.

ps, one of my majors at uni was anthrop, it was great i highly recommend it as a course to study. you'll never look at the world the same way again :-)

mummazappa: Thank you so much. Its so good to know I'm not the only one getting a little disturbed by this lady. I'm trying not to take it to heart, but sometimes its kind of difficult when someones calling you an idiot when they don't even know you.

Simon said...

Dammit, Danielle! You've given away my secret identity! Now we're all in danger!

Dannie said...

Shut up before I give everyone your locker combo.

Simon said...

Fine! While your at it, tell me what it is, because I haven't been in there since October.

Dannie said...

Shit, niether have I.

...

What now?

The etymology of the English language is absolutely fascinating. I took one class of it in college and I was drooling. It's just amazing what our language started off as and the route it took to get to where it is today. Archeology and all of that always interested me and when I was your age (fuck me, I hate saying that) I really wanted to go into Egyptology and in the US, UCLA is the best school for that; they have the best program. But I ended up backing out because of how narrow of a field it actually is. Instead I got an English degree. What a . . . wise . . . move . . . O_o Oh, so you want to be a teacher? NO, I DON'T WANT TO BE A FUCKING TEACHER!!!

The Dark is Rising is an awesome book if you haven't read it yet. I snagged the old school fabulous original 1970s cover copies from a library sale a couple weeks ago. Awesome.

As for anonymous comments, don't let them get you all riled up. They can't be bothered to post with their "face" exposed, why bother getting worked up about it? Just mocked them a little, spray them with some miak and tell them to fuck off. I mean really. Takes a REAL BIG PERSON to come onto someone's blog and "rip them a new one" anonymously. And a cop, huh? So she/he should know that with today's technology that's keeping her/him anonymous can easily be turned around to find her, right? And quite simply at that. Sigh. The anonynerds never think. Therein lies their comedy.

Your nose is not big.

I love you, for being you.
Madame Anonymous can go fall in a ditch.

Dannie: You asked where I got my copy of FORGET YOU? Secret sources. Actually the author sent it - not so secret. So, how much $$ do I get? :p

Dannie said...

Sara: it seems I have been swindled. Bah! Take it all, you coniving urchin!

Dannie said...

Robby: lucky for her, I have dug a nice lofy hole for her in my backyard (right next to my neighbors farm, might I add)...

and thank you, but I can promise you that my nose is signifigantly bigger then most people's.

Donna: Holy shit, that sucks. I heard its basically the same trap for anything except math and buisness.

I actually have read THE DARK IS RISING, and its so awesome it makes the film even more heartbreaking.

Oh, and she's not a cop. She's a...erm...I think it was probabtion officer or something.

Well I think your nose looks fab. I hate anon commenters too. Grow some balls!

I left a comment on that video under my own name.I just think you need to be careful what you post on the internet sometimes as it can have an impact on your future. That being said I have nothing against pot smoking, smokers, and all that jazz.

Dannie said...

sharon: lol, I think every politition in the world proves that. I just didn't really think I would get in trouble for it cuz, you know, I wasn't high...

But hey. To each one's own.
