The Last Shall Be First

And so, this is a blog, in its own way. The first post of a new blog is always a bit awkward, isn't it? You find yourself thinking, "Should it be a simple greeting, should it just be an amusing picture of a cat, or should I hit them straightaway with the full force of my scathing critique of the World Trade Organisation?" In a way, I am attempting all three, although in another way, I'm attempting none of them.

The main point I wish for you to absorb is that this IS a blog, and I will be putting things on it which you can look at, and you can tell all your friends about it and secretly lust over me and so forth. If you're here reading this, it's probably because you already, to some extent, either like or dislike me, so hopefully I can sustain your interest.

So without further ado, let me present's FIRST-EVER LINK!

Which is this: in case you haven't yet read it, my latest scurrilous attack on decent people here.

And with that out of the way, please leave comments below on the theme of one of the following:

- Hi!

- I love you!

- Here is what I want from a blog

- I have lots of money would you like some?

Bye for now.

Have I made some awful faux pas? I mean nobody else has commented. It's very uncool to be this punctual, isn't it

Oh Ben
With wit so sharp and scathing
Your blogs
A must on my morning net ambling

I love you
Let me count the ways
Or not
Who can count when consumed in a haze

Of such hormonal splendour
Shredding my thoughts like a blender
I cannot get enough of your jovial banter
And stalker-like urges within my heart fester
As I read your latest blog faster and faster
Slowly approaching panting heart failure

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yes

(there ya go :D hows that for an i love you?)

Mad Cat Lady said...

Thank you. You are too kind :)

Good to see you on Blogspot, Ben. I think it's about the best software around for blogs.

So you're telling me I have to bookmark two sites in order to revel in your inscribed wisdom or are you discontinuing the other site? I'm not entirely sure I can be counted on to remember to check two sites...

Well, technically you have to bookmark three, including newmatilda...but this blog will tell you about newmatilda, so that's OK.

And it all depends on how much wisdom you can take...
