Psychotic Mailbag

i just read every single word that you said. (Referencing this post: You come across as horrifically bitter, twisted and jealous.You obviously do not share in the fame and success that is rightfully the territory of the stars in general.It is for that reason alone that your only "pathetic claim to fame" as unsuccessful as it is, is to make those who have "achieved it" look less than what they are and truly deserve.I remember an old saying that goes something like this....... "jealousy is a curse" maybe you are familiar with that one?.Go back to your bottle of alcohol and drown your sins you pathetic piece of nothingness.Let the stars bask in the glory that they so richly deserve.

Dear Anonymous:

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog and remind me why I like my animals so much. I can assure you that I am not jealous of Tom Cruise. Why would I be? He lives his life, enmeshed in a dangerous cult, and he lives a lie. There is no amount of money in the world that would make such choices worthwhile.

And why is "fame" and "success" "rightfully the territory of the stars in general"? Are you suggesting that others have no right to fame and success? I'm sure this would be news to people like Stephen King, Jimmy Rollins, Danica Patrick and many others who may not be your definition of a "star" but who certainly have achieved fame and success. And let's look at the other side of that coin - - Amy Winehouse has achieved fame and success; Lindsay Lohan has achieved fame and success; Britney Spears has achieved fame and success. Would I want to be in their shoes? Hell, no.

And while I'm flattered that you consider my little old blog a claim to fame, pathetic or otherwise, I'm not trying to be famous. I enjoy writing and that's my only mission here. And if people are reading, then I am successful. Sorry to burst your bubble. You don't have to agree with me, you don't even have to like what I write. They are my opinions and that's all. You see, Anonymous, that's the wonderful thing about our country (and not being Scientologists). We can express our opinions without fear of being declared an SP or forced into Purif. If you don't know what that is, I suggest you check it out because the Tom Cruise you so vehemently want to defend is a practitioner and supporter of both.

I suggest that you go back and read your post to me. Now read mine. Who sounds bitter now? Who sounds jealous? It's certainly not me.

I think you need to lighten up.



p.s. - I don't drink, but thanks for the offer. I may "drown my sins" in a nice chocolate bar though.
p.p.s. - Tom, is that you?
