It is Eskimo Bob Lives, and it is Wednesday. I'm glad to say that I have this post posted on time - so I hope you folks on the East Coast or in other Countries take advantage of this.
I don't think I've ever mentioned someone in the title of a post. However - something kind of strange happened yesterday. Something that seemed a bit like something I would do. As my family (Father, Mother, Sister and Brother) calls it "A Bob Thing".
Separate from my post of comments that I had made on others posts, yesterday I had left a comment after reading a rather good post by Pearl. In my comment - I made a flippant remark how I have to bribe and cajole folks into coming to EBL, yet once they arrive they just leave, not reading.
Well - Darsden read that comment - and not one to take things sitting down, she proceeded to go through my previous 143 posts and leaving comments on each one that she had read. Not limited to just my posts, she was parading the fact, that I thought she didn't read my posts with a mention in her own post yesterday, and also not limited to just that - but leaving comments on others posts verifying that she had indeed read my posts.
When I first read one of her comments - I took it as a ribbing and chuckled to myself. Then - the e-mails arrived. I have comments forwarded to my e-mail alerting me that a comment had been posted. Well - my e-mail is forwarded to my iPhone - and all day, over 25 chimes lit up my phone. I couldn't understand what was happening until I had gone back to my flippant remark.
I think there is a lesson to be learned. Sadly Darsden had to pay the price. After spending about 25 minutes perusing over my body of work - I do believe the County officers came to pick her up after she had gone crazy. Please limit your exposure to EBL to no more than 12 minutes a day - otherwise you place your mental health in jeopardy.
And Darsden? You rock.
