Following on from the deleted ( -- ) diatribe of marc_sc…
I've reviewed two pieces of your work - hardly "following" you around, is it?
Seeing as how you have chosen to dispute the validity of my claim, I feel that it is only prudent to lay a few facts down before you.
Yes, you have only reviewed two of my (many) works, but both of these came very quickly after I chose to review one of your efforts (Jan 5).
Secondly, during the period Jan 6 to Jan 10 your tiny contribution to the GW review process has been a mere two reviews, both of these against my works, leaving a big fat zero of your valued opinions posted against all of the other fabulous works on display here at Great Writing.
To my mind, this qualifies as tit for tat reviewing. Two tits, in fact - with emphasis on tit.
So, yes, I do feel that your limited activity qualifies you as someone who is following me around: Otherwise known as a stalker - ooh, it makes me feel all famous! Time alone will tell if this is a trend that will continue.
Time, also, along with the interest shown in our works by our peers, will tell if this Great Writing site is the place for me, or, indeed, the place for you. I know who my money’s on.
However, if you can say, hand on heart, that your reviews of my work were genuine reviews, and not the actions of a wounded cur seeking only to hound the individual whose words left him an injured party, then I will happily withdraw my original claim - although, I still feel it’s emphasis on tit.
Were you pulled off too soon, I wonder? The tit, I mean, not… oh, please yourselves!
And now it’s time for… EDUCATE THE IGNORANT
With your host… SPIRITUS SANCTI
If something is “fishy” it means that there is something suspicious about it.
Therefore, a “Fishy Story” is something that should be considered somewhat lacking in truth - it has nothing to do with aquatic mammals.
The Bible states that Jonah was swallowed by a “Big Fish”, not a whale, therefore Jason was correct in using the phrase “Fishy Story”.
It is only the likes of Eve (who is merely a dumb - when it suits her to be - blonde) and the feeble minded (check in the mirror) who believe that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
Jason considers the majority of the Bible a fishy tale.
It only takes one nit to write a nitpick.
