Response to JD's comment

Comment from JD Curtis
Merry Christmas Steve.

And may your upcoming new year be every bit as gloomy, melancholy, darkly introspective, negative, stoic, foreboding, dejected, despondant, doleful, wistful, disheartening, glum, funereal, pensive, trite, and mirthless as your blog is. :)


Now this just begs for a response.

Gloomy...
Well I disagree with that assertion.  I think I can be gloomy from time to time, just like any other human, but please, Eeyore I am not.

Melancholy...
One would think that JD was describing Lydia Deetz.

Actually I don't own that much black.  Except for a pair of pants.  And some socks.

Darkly Introspective...
Okay, guilty on that charge.  But hey, life ain't sunshine, smiles and rainbows...unless you are JD Curtis I suspect.  Oooops, sorry JD...don't think that I am for one minute implying that you are Gay with the whole rainbow comment.  I know you feel about those people.

Negative...
Wrong.  I'm not the one who tells entire classes of people that they are somehow wrong.  Pot calling the kettle black on this one JD?  In point of fact I am one of the most positive people I know.  This goes to show you that anything you read on-line should be held in suspect relative to the truth.

Stoic...
Guilty as charged.

Foreboding...
Not really.

Dejected & Despondent...
There was a point in time when I did feel that way, but not now.  My life now is great, thank you very much!

Doleful...
Full of Dole?

Wistful & Disheartening & Glum...
Again, if you think you can really know someone from what you read in, of all place, a blog...well then I really want to sell you some stuff.  Can I stop by?  I have some real estate that I don't own that is burning a hole in my pocket as I type this...

By the way, since JD apparently do believe all that he sees and reads on-line, for the record I really look like this...

...except for the eyes.  Mine are hazel.

Funereal...
I confess to having to look this word up.  Kudos!  I disagree underlying thought, but I am impressed never the less with the language.

Pensive...
Seriously JD, you basically just started taking words for this list that were simply found in the definitions of other words.  I expect more than just blatant verbal recycling.

Trite...
You do realize that this is:
a) The Internet
b) We both have blogs
...right?  Please do tell me what parts of on-line blogging are not trite? Hell, at least I am man enough to admit it!

Mirthless..
Those that really know me will tell you that I am a pretty funny guy.  Now not as funny as, say, Rush Limbaugh as he makes fun of blacks, homosexuals, and others (but not drug addicts...oops), but funny never the less.


But hey, at least you didn't include hypocritical on your mirthless, gloomy and pensive list.

So Happy Holidays JD...and here's to a mirthful 2012!
