Dear Scribosphere,

Dear Scribosphere,

(clarification - this dear john letter is to www.scribosphere.org)

I know I'm not the hottest blogger to hit the internet, but did I wrong you in another life? Why do you snub me so? I feel like a jilted girlfriend. My emails go unanswered and if you had a phone, you'd probably avoid me when you see me on caller ID -- not that I'd call after the way I've been treated.

While I admit that some of my posts digress from hair color to rodent infestation, I do now and then actually have something to contribute to the wannabe screenwriting population of the blogworld, although you seem to think I'm nothing but a pretty face.

You do think I'm pretty, don't you?

Fine. I won't get needy.

Plenty of blogs want to link to mine.

Well, twenty six. It used to be about seventy but I kind of let myself go. That happens after you punch out a few screenplays and spend less time on the internet.

I don't care even care if you link to my blog or not. It's not like I'm some kind of expert or something.

Besides, you're so vane. You probably think this blog is about you.

Wait.

So, like, you wanna hang out or something?

Scribosphere? Hello?

So, you mad at me?

Want me to heat us up some pizza pockets? Scrubs is on.

It's not you, it's me.


(hope that staves off the sheers)

Aarrgghh! I've got that Carly Simon song stuck in my head now!

Fancy sharing those meds? :)

Unk said...

Whoa... I forgot to buzz... STING!

Unk

P.S. If it makes any difference (which it probably does not) - you were one of the first blogs I linked to without getting a link back.

Why? Because I do find your posts insightful.

Time to fly fly fly away now...

Unk again.

MaryAn Batchellor said...

Of course it does, Unk, I'm just bruised that www.scribosphere.org does not link to me... they love you though.. as they SHOULD.. as we all should.

You are on the firstest and bestest scribosphere list (http://www.bloglines.com/public/davidanaxagoras). Of course, everyone is, but you're still special.

I also recently moved your link to my front page on MBH because you've been such a faithful commenter and, well, the pretty face doesn't hurt either...

Now, once you've been around the scribosphere a while, you'll find out what REALLY hurts -- being UNlinked by someone who used to link to you. Now that's rejection.

MaryAn Batchellor said...

Who did such a thing to you? I'll get my brother to beat them up.

In truth, I'm in awe at the number of people who actually read some of this word vomit I spit out...

You guys rock. So do my meds. Still no headaches since Jan 7... life is good.

Unk said...

Since I don't do "Idol," I figured I'd make the comments an even TEN and say GOOD LUCK on you NICHOLL entry and if I can help somehow, please do not hesitate to ask.

MaryAn Batchellor said...

There IS something you can do, Unk. How do you look in pleated skirt and pom poms? Hmm?

Scribosphere said...

MaryAn, oh, MaryAn.

You haven't been forgotten. You may not believe it, but you're very interesting as well.

Ouch.

It hurts.

A tribute to you is up, because you're worth it.

Cheers,

Scribosphere.org

PS. They say I look like that Zach-Scrubs guy (but if you ask me I look better).

MaryAn Batchellor said...

But do you have a voice-over in your head that gives you life lessons? Right now mine is reminding me that pepperoni speaks louder than email. Thanks for the tribute.
