Kelly the fireguy and Maureen, THIS is seething

Hey, you asked.

***

"He didn't have sex in 2 1/2 years - I lost respect for him" - Scott Thompson

Back at Canada Reads, Deafening got turfed today. John Mutford has been giving some really good synopses on his blog and today in particular he was spot-on. He can fill you in on today's details very eloquently.

I think that it is looking very promising for A Complicated Kindness, though. It was finally discussed today, and very well received by everybody. Best line of the day goes naturally to Scott Thompson. Here's the setup:

Bill Richardson: John Samson, you are being very quiet over there. I think you are engineering this all.

Scott Thompson: That's very Icelandic of you. You people are very very shrewd. You are the whitest of all.

I lolled so hard.

michelle said...

These literary debates sound so smartly juicy! So far my next read is pulling 'er own... cool.

jen beat me to it - your hair owns.

kelly said...

...but if you look at the eyes..those aren't seething eyes....they are more laughing eyes....so there...plllllttt

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh Kelly, you should still be scared, because I'm mean even when I am laughing.

Will, it's just a dog fight, and Scott Thompson does an excellent job of throwing some wtf factor into the mix.

haha Stephanie, aren't you glad I'm not your boss, or your mom?

Melissa, I'm not sure if it helped your boredom any, but I'm always glad to see you.

Jen and Michelle, my hair thanks you. I was at a party a few months ago and the host's two-year-old son came up to me and said "you have funny hair!" He was right.

You should still be afraid, Kelly.

WolfHeart RavenHorse said...

Wow, open the page and there you are, seething in all your glory! Put Kelly is right, you don't look too scary! hehe Crazy maybe...but that's normal :) hehe

Love ya!

WolfHeart RavenHorse said...

that should say "but Kelly is right".....geesh, I can type!

Barbara said...

I forget... why are you seething?

You tell Scott that Lots of people worthy of his respect have not gotten any in 2 1/2 years...

Neil said...

Man, first time I come back here in a few weeks and I get that big accusing finger.... it's like you know all the evil I've been up to.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You're right, Bev, there is way more crazy in me than there is angry. I still think I look pretty scary though. Let me try that look out on some little kids...

It's a long story Barbara W. I was seething with jealousy at Maureen because she lives the island life on PEI,and Kelly asked me what seething looked like. It disintegrated from there.
Scott Thompson is hung up on sex.

I see everything, Neil, and I am SHOCKED at you! The things you have been up to! And you didn't even invite me.
You are lucky I still love you.

Maureen said...

hahaha, okay so that's seething! glad it's only over the internet!!

I think Scott is so much fun, though there was a time not too long ago I guess I wouldn't have been worthy of his respect ;)

John Mutford said...

Thanks for the link! I've enjoyed the sites I've found by putting "Canada Reads" in the bolg search; your site being tops.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh sure, rub it in, Maureen! So all of us sexless married folks can be seething with jealousy at you. See? There it is again! Seething.

Thanks, John! Your site is excellent and I think you should probably be a panelist on Canada Reads next year. But I hope you are wrong with tomorrow's prediction.

Stephanie said...

haha if you were my boss you would never have to look at me that way because i am awesome!
lol

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Stephanie, I know you are awesome, but that would make me glare at you even more.

To Those Who Annoy Me said...

People, let me tell u...I work with this badtemperedzombie...the seething you see in the picture is nothing compared to her seething live and in person...

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Word, Mrs Ritchie.
And welcome to the hell hole I like to call home. There's good folks in here with me though.

Maureen said...

dammit, i better be more careful what i say

hehehe

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You know it, Maureen!

tydes perdition said...

I think I may have to photoshop your picture and put flames coming off the top of your head. That would properly reflect the seething.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

That would be perfect, Jeff! And maybe devil's horns? I've always wanted devil's horns.
