And speaking of blogger friends, one of my girls is going through a hard time right now. Innocent until proven guilty. That's all I will say about that. We, too, have been online acquaintances for some time now and I think she's the cat's pajamas. Sadly, there's another blogger out there, though I shan't link to her here, that finds it appropriate to "revel" over the fact that my girl is going through a rough patch.
By way of Mr. Vholes I mosied over and left her the following comment:
You know, reveling is rude. It doesn't make you look better to shit on someone when they're down. It just makes you look petty.
To which she replied:
Dear, sweet, amazonian, ignorant, Randi. As usual, the most ignorant and least involved are leading the charge to protect the virtue of someone only truly gifted at kissing ass and paying lip service (literally and figuratively). But considering the group, this comes as no shock. You are all so cute in your syncophantic self-righteousness.
My favorite part about her reply is that she immediately resorted to name calling. Only Amazonian? Is that an insult? That I'm a female warrior? Well, hell. I'll take it. Yup, she nailed it: I'm 5'8 and a buck sixty five so I'm not a petite little flower. But what does that have to do with anything? And did you catch that I'm ignorant? Because she mentioned it twice in less than ten words. And how am I self-righteous? Isn't she? Sigh. Her argument is nonsensical at best.

The group she is referring to is a tight community of decent bloggers who I am proud and pleased to be affiliated with. So all in all I guess the only way to respond to this is to stoop to her childish level and say:
