A few minutes after I posted about Myrtle's retirement, my friend & critic Mary sent me the email posted below. WARNING: the email is UNEDITED, meaning the spelling, grammar and choice of words are hers. Some people may find it offensive.I have in no way edited her email. If you have not read the previous WTF Myrtle please do so to gain some background on this what I consider to be humorous issue. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!
" If you do not stop, I will be force not to notify Yahoo.com and have your account deleted. It is not nice of you to mislead people into thinking you will be discussing the use of fat quarters in quiting and the quiting process. Why do you not talk about fat quers in your blog? are you even a quilter or you just making fun of us who are? Please respond via email because I need to know when you reply to me. I have enjoyed your first few blog posts and think your quilts are pretty.
Please note I have honored Mary's request and have replied to her via email, after I changed clothes because I wet myself from laughing so hard (not really but close!). My reply is below
I appreciate that you have read and enjoyed the first part of my blog and that you liked my quilts. my Blog was never meant to be educational to anyone nor do I ever claim it to be anything about fat quarters. If you read the tag line in the title you'll see a references to my geographical location - THE FLATLANDS of Kansas. This blog is my musings most of which are about my quilting as are the blog's I follow. I'm not sure from your continued emails that you are familiar with blogging or the site that hosts my blog. It is not Yahoo therefore they would have no power whatsoever to delete my account nor have I in any form violated the terms of the user agreement. I'm sorry that you mistook my blog for something it is not, but that is in no way my fault. Your emails and the tone in which they were written amused me and I chose to share them with my readers. Those words, once delivered to my inbox, are in fact my property. Had you not wanted them displayed, they should have never been written. I have decided to respond directly to you this time as you seemed to not be informed of this and I wanted to correct this mis-perception. I will however be sharing my enjoyment with my faithful blog followers as I see fit. I will not poke undo harm at you. I will simply let your statements stand as written. Thank you. "
Now lets look into Mary's email shall we?
Go ahead and "not to notify Yahoo.com" babe, this is a google owned site and yahoo can't and I doubt will do anything about it.
"Using Fat Quarters in quiting and the quiting process" my question is the quiting of WHAT?
Why don't I talk about "Fat Quers" in my blog? ummm its not polite and I believe you've mis-spelled a word or two. I believe the politically correct term is Pudgy anyway...
Yes I "are even a quilter". And I'm an equal oportunity smart ass. I'll call anyone on their BS and I'd hope others would do that of me. As for making fun of you quilters, we're all in this boat together if'n we can't laugh at ourselves who the hell can we laugh at? Besides I have never poked fun or laughed at any of my quilting friends in order to cause un-do harm to them, you included.
Thank you for reading my previous posts and enjoying my finished quilt tops. Stay tuned I'll post more pictures of my finished work soon.
To all my followers, I thank you from the bottom of my stash bin. If you need, you may apply oxygen to help you breathe.
