Leave My Precious Flower of a Sister Alone!

Friday, April 23, 2010 5:44 PM By Simon

My sister, the lovely Danielle was under the flaming flame of a flametastic anonymous commenter on her blog. Normally, I wouldn't give a rat's ass about such, but it was on a certain subject: Reefer Madness!

Not really, but wouldn't that be special?

It was, however, on the subject on marijuana. You see, for the joyous occasion of 4/20 (WOO!), Danielle posted a video blog (or a vlog, as the kids are calling it) about whatever, I forget. The point is, my sister is very (ahem) bubbly...some might call her drunkenly so. This is not the first time people have assumed she was under the influence of Le Reefer. Here's the original comment:

I'm surprised that you even comment on what your thankful for. You give bloggers a bad name. Most of us, saw your little show the other night on 4/20. Its quite disrespectful to make a vlog when your high as a kite!!!

First, Lady MacGruff the Crime Dog, nobody's going to see a book blogger on the street and turn the other direction because they don't want any trouble. Or any blogger for that matter, except maybe that crazy conservative former wrestler Cracked did an article about once.

Also, nobody saw it, because 'Youtube' deleted it maybe an hour after the fact (ahem). So I don't know what impressionable net surfers will be offended. Except you, you...ninny. Yeah, I'm going British on your ass!

And then, this Anonymous Ruffelhauser replied to a reply Noble Danielle posted. Here is that:

You really contradict yourself. One minute you say your not high than the next you say, even if I was. So I assume you were. And if that is your personality, you may need to invest in some new contacts because your eyes were as glazed as a box of donuts.

I am glad I am not in your high school class if you all go around high.

Another thing, all I'm saying is, a lot of people saw it and discussed it on twitter and once its out there, it is. To vlog like that is just disrespectful and thoughtfulness. It does give us bloggers who actually blog and are respectful to others, a bad name and all you have done is tarnish your reputation.

I'm surprised you can even read a book. I won't comment again, I'm just saying that please do not vlog HIGH! And don't lie and say you weren't. It was obvious to me. I work at the police station and see this everyday!!!

Okay. Stoners are more awesome than you'll ever be, Desk Clerk. Peace. Out.

*seriously, my sister is making me write this, okay?*

Yikes. I haven't seen said video so I'll leave that aside.

This happens from time to time in blogging. I once had a guy time up a four paragraph long rant because I used the word "irony" wrong. It makes them feel better to get high and mighty, show how high minded they are. So, I can help with the translating:

1) By works at a police station they mean delivers mail there once a week, and asks about cooking recipes.

2) What they're really saying is "on the weekends I like to go to coffee shops and pretend to read french novels."

3) By eyes glazed as a box of donuts, I think we know what they're thinking: "I could totally go for a box of krispy kreme and a porn right about now."

Really, they're seldom worth caring about, and even less worth posting about. Continue business at usual!

Univarn, was it Sam Juliano, ha....ha...ha..., anyway, I remember when I wrote about why Eli Roth sucks on Suite101 last year and people were responding telling me how gay I was and all that. It's rather amusing really.
