The Ramblings of a Somewhat Unstable Mind

Hatemail, Anyone?

What’s a guy gotta do?

Just what do I have to do to get some hate mail?  I wrote blogged about the existence of God, for Pete’s (and, everyone else’s) sake! Still, no hate mail.  I keep reading the posts of one rather successful blogger who rants about the joys and pratfalls of marriage, and she gets hate mail all the time.  Heck, she even writes posts about all of the hate mail she gets, and includes some of the statements that are included within.  What do I have to do to get my first hate mail?  Beg?  Borrow?  Steal?

Hate Mail? Anyone?

In my post, titled “The Universe, Death and Deja Vu”, (which can be seen here; http://thingsithinkithunk.wordpress.com/blow-my-mind/) I ranted on about the existence of God, how the Universe is constantly expanding (into where?) and traveling (from/to where?), how “The Big Bang” supposedly created all that there is, from just two atoms colliding at high speeds.  Yet, no hate mail!

I ranted about Dave Hester, the conceited little piggy-man star idiot from “Storage Wars” (when storage units go bad…), and nary a hate mail! No, people actually like it!  I ranted on about how the NHL disses their fans by not having any seats available to the general public for the All Star Game, let alone for season ticket holders and even private box holders. Now, maybe I didn’t jump on a few obvious slurs while writing these (as “private box holder? Excuse me, ma’am, can I hold your box for you?” comes to mind), but that is more a sign that I am not willing to kowtow down to the gutters just to get my first dose of hate mail love.

Maybe if I ranted about Hate Mail?  I could go on about how it’s more than likely a club for extroverted lesbians, but I would probably just get an invitation to the Ellen DeGeneres Show!

  1. You called me over to read about the Ottawa Senators?! Well I believe the Canucks could beat them, with the twins and Bieksa in good form right now. Stop shaking your head!
    I agree that the All Star game is not really for the fans – wait I mean I agree with your viewpoint, but I don’t agree that it is right in principle.

  2. Thanks for the visit, Christy! I do look forward to your open and insightful comments.

    What is it that you think is wrong in principle? My post or what the NHL does to fans regarding the All Star game? I know you’re a Canucks fan, nothing wrong with that, you should root, root, root for the home team. When I lived in Toronto for 8 years, i just couldn’t bring myself to be a Leafs fan, but when I lived in Ottawa I went right to the turnstiles and never looked back.

    do you go to any games? (thanks for the pointers – very helpful!)

  3. No I don’t think your post is wrong. I don’t agree with the NHL method of giving the best seats to the bigwigs and many seats are too expensive for the average person. What up with that?
    Yes defend the local team, it’s Canada pride :) I went to a game a few years back, but none recently.
    Keep on writing!

    • Thanks for the visit! I agree, NHL fans are the ones who paid premium prices for the seats that second cousins, twice removed of advertiser’s executives will be sitting in for the All Star game! Even people who paid over $25,000 per year for executive suites have to watch the game from home or the sports bar, drinking their sorrows away while watching people sit in their boxes who don’t even watch the game.

  4. One of these days you will get your first loony. Then, they will pass your email address out with the afternoon meds and cookies. You forget, I get hatemail from my normal posts.
    Red.

  5. Here you go, Marc, your first hate mail: I HATE that you’re not having to deal with loonies, since I’m sure you would get a kick out of dealing with them, lol!

  6. I got a great hate mail today. Too bad it’s so full of expletives that I can’t reprint it. Though maybe I’ll use my now (in) famous crossout. :)

  7. Hmm could be because your writing (however provoking the subject) simply is captivating. Like listening to the “grumpy” great grandpa at family gatherings. And even if one disagrees with what you are writing, the mere fact that one continued reading makes one understand that they don’t want to send you any hate mail. One is me?? Not really, been a ” fan” since the first read… Sorry :-)

    • Thanks for the visit, Anaherahz! Oh, great, another nice comment! Really, what’s a guy gotta do?

      • Thank you for the entertaining read. Tip, write a “no-no” topic or do something like posting pics with accompanying subtexts ugly babies, better yet the abolition of said babies, that should really get people going. Or maybe a piece on women “knowing their place” or a comparative blog on previously mentioned topic (women of the olden day verses the modern woman) . Should probably do it… Hope you find something soon. Also hope you post it

  8. Marc Marc Marc . .
    Expression unfortunately does not render for some. However, this spiff is rather amusing.
    Thanks for this post : )

  9. As a displaced Canucks fan (Stuck in Chicago) I must start by saying. GO CANUCKS!

    On the other hand…if you want hate mail..I’m for hire, after all a girl has to try and make the mortgage.
