My recent rant on the Frey Fray caught some attention, including in a forum of Writersnet.com. Here’s a shout out to Mya, who called my attention to it, and actually is the one who wrote about my blog in the forum. I liked her comments, and hope she will regularly visit Trapped.
But, of course, something ELSE caught my eye when I visited the forum. Of the few comments I read (okay, okay, the few comments THERE) about my post, I found this one really interesting.

Natalie Collins maybe honest in this respect, but she’s a bitch of a different kind.
Finding random snarky comments about me, especially those sufficiently random and vague and confusing enough to make one ask, “WTF?” always make me wonder about the writer’s motivation–and also how much CRACK they were smoking that day. Because, PLEASE, a bitch of a different kind? As opposed to WHAT kind? A kind bitch? A normal kind of bitch? Are there classifications for bitches? See what I mean? It screams “CRACK ADDICTION.” Lord, it’s just so confusing.
So, I showed my friend Karin, who immediately made a connection that some of the rest of you might have made. The Mormon connection. Karin, by the way, knows a few Mormons, but is not Mormon, has never been Mormon, and WILL NEVER BE Mormon (Just say NO, Karin! Do not open the door to those nice young men in white shirts! Look away from the WHITE SHIRTS!). When I showed her the comment on Writersnet.com, without making my OWN comment or giving any editorial of any sort, her response was, “It’s a Mormon.”
See? And I did NOT encourage this. I DID NOT. I did not say one thing about any suspicions I might have. I’m not entirely sure I had suspicions. No Mormon has ever called me “a bitch of a different kind.” I think. Okay, at least not while I was sober enough to comprehend it.
Annnywayyy, all I said was, “What do you think of this?”
And she said, “Mormon.”
So there you have it. If Shangri La IS Mormon, you are not doing yourself any favors. And for God’s sake, PLEASE… why are you hanging out in a writer’s forum? Especially if you don’t know that MAYBE and MAY BE are not even REMOTELY related.
You probably think “alot” is one word, too. WELL it ain’t! You don’t have alittle, so you can’t have alot! So there!
