Date: May 26, 2008

Time: Evening

Situation: Friendly phone call

Me: I'm pissed! No one's commenting on my blog! I'm going to quit.

Friend: If you want comments, why not talk about things happening in Kuwait? Post some pictures or something. Talk about a restaurant, you know…

Me: Well that's a pile of fresh, steamy poop. Yeah, here you go people, another flamboyantly written review about a newly opened bistro and why I hate or love the hell out of it. That's what people need here, more time to eat their way into early obesity.

Friend: Well draw something, I don't know…

Me: Yeah I haven't done that in a while. We'll see what I'll cook up…

The Bangles - Manic Monday
Alphaville - Forever Young
Billy Ocean - Caribbean Queen
Boney M - Felicidad
Pet Shop Boys - Domino Dancing

    i gotta say comments are important to keep u going... totally understand but not getting comments is no reason to quit. there r some blogs who never get comments but always have interesting stuff to share.

    ps: i am one of those who review restaurants to obesity :P but luckily am not obese :)

    Hahaha Erzuliyah!

    If I had not been such a slave - *SLAVE* to work the past two months, you would have seen me attached to your proverbial blog commentary hip, and then you would have used that lovely guttermouth of yours (I bet my own potty talk could well stand up creatively in imagination and dimension to your own) to give me the blog heave-ho and asked me to take my verbose, chatty, often annoyingly perky, pestilential pestiness elsewhere. Aroint thee, ya motormouthed one!

    Dont worry about substance, after the shock settled in about the reality of our near socio-political future, I think the situation warrants a few hilarious and deliriously bovine excremental posts.

    Cook away Chef Erzuliya :) Bes no restaurant reviews Allah ikhaleech, my fanny is already too big and too weak to be able to withstand being encouraged subliminally by one of my very favorite bloggers to go out and feed it some more...

    (a looooooong installment of my next chapter will be forthcoming in your inbox, please forgive my shamelessly slacker-ified habit of perpetual tardiness. (Perhaps I should use that as my new moniker: Ms. Baker, Our Slacker Lady of Perpetual Tardiness)

    It helps to leave comments on other people's blogs too and to remove word verification ;)

    Don't quit, I love your blog especially your cartoons (hint).

    I did not comment on your last post: http://erzulie1985.blogspot.com/2008/05/god-is-here.html

    because I did not get it.

    Trust me, drawings attract comments more than posts, am experienced with such things

    Ha! Erzulie ish'hal7achi?!!!
    You are the most creative when it comes to Kuwaiti bloggers..
    3an eddala3 :P

    I'm one of your avid loyal readers.
    Sorry I don't always comment :**

    LOOL Allah yal 3asara! You need to get out of the country a bit , you know chillax and all that :)

    There. I left a comment. Better? :P

    Not all readers leave comments so don't them into account. My most visited posts have the least comments!
  13. Blogger Intlxpatr posted at 6:23 PM  
    LLLOOOLLL, Erzulie - no one ever comments on the substance posts, they read them, they think about them, but they comment on food posts, cat posts, joke posts . . .

    Keep writing, dear one, you are a bright spot in the blogging world. Write because YOU need to write.

    Well I am an avid reader of your blog and I live in Canada. I believe I found you a year or so ago in some search and I have continued visiting since then

    I love your blog...and I am guilty as charged when it comes to not replying because honestly I wouldn't know what to say to you and "great blog" just seems dumb to say

    I have a modest blog myself...rarely get comments but judging by my view count I get a lot of visitors...God bless em!! lool I still keep up the babble...not sure why...guess just in the hopes that some brave soul is out there enjoying it

    If my voice counts at all...I would like to see you continue blogging...

    k the kalboon: hey now, it's a friggin' favor and i aim to use and abuse commercial phoenician means to spread the word around! :P~

    purgatory: yes...

    fonzy: i know that not getting comments is not THE reason to quit but i feel a bit...snubbed? yes call me a wuss or someone who poops on their own party *scratches head* am i seeking attention? shit, i think im an attention whore...yikes...well yeah, there you go...

    ms. baker: you know, i let out a sigh of relief after i read the last bit. i was thinking, "good gosh! did i step over the line in the last email i sent her!" im looking forward to your email and i hope it fills my inbox to the top :)

    evil knievel: all right i can feel my head gettin' bigger...ah music selections. well, i just look at what i have on my iPod and try to find it online! :P~ but im going back in time so stay with me here. better music though then that's for sure.

    miyafushi: okay you got me with the leaving comments on people's blogs. people might say that there's no excuse for that one but honestly, i come back home from work at 8 PM-ish and my brain cells are completely frazzled. i just check 2-3 blogs. but im sticking with the word verification though, avoid all that spam stuff. plus, it's fun to see what the bunch of random letters spell out! :P~

    don veto: straight and to the point. and about what you mentioned first, i will do that because i want too :)

    purgatory: you know purg, you always say "am doing this and that..." instead of saying "i am..." why? you do that everywhere and it's...incorrect! anyway...

    SP: ditto :)

    shurouq: :P~~

    1001: i need a friggin' vacation crap (if i continue cussing i know i will NEVER stop)...and i agree, there is a little bit of 3asara involved :P~

    3baid: yay! sweet im liking this...maybe i should have a post titled "i am going to commit suicide tonight" wonder how many people'll comment. imagine if i get a comment saying something on the lines of "erzulie, i've hated you ever since you started blogging. please don't hesitate or think twice tonight." shit im giving myself the creeps...

    intlxpatr: the last sentence you wrote is so true and i kinda love you for it.

    DR: coming coming!

    blondy: i have a huge grin on my face right now :) thank you...

    well, it's 12:15 AM right now. it's technically thursday. i'm tired. still didn't wash my face or anything. gotta do that and head to bed. everyone, thank you :) i KNOW this is such a cliche way to end this all but what's written above really means a lot to me because - ironically - you're all practically strangers. actually, you are strangers with a heart. all right, my bed is calling me. i hate my bed. stiff mattress...gotta change it to something soft. orthopedic my ass, more like sleeping on a stack of wood...

    The sounds of my virtual *BEAR HUG* 7aggich

    How could you ever have gone over the line ya sweet Erzuliyah? You are amazing, wonderful, awesome, delightful, a joy, kindness incarnate, loving and wise. And I mean that with every bit of me.

    You will be shaking your fist (or flipping me the bird, you pick ;P) at me for making your inbox crash this weekend...

    i've been urging *read: nagging* u to draw, especially in taking a more 'day to day' and/or political inclination in ur caricatures since scofield had to think before everything went his brother's way..
    didnt think i had to be a fancy "friend" to have what i say considered.. so much for being the idiot ahead of his time

    am dont need to use "I", its silen and hidden.
  21. Blogger Erzulie posted at 3:09 PM  
    error: whatever floats your boat :)

    ms. baker: bring it on! :P

    temetwir: i am not di3la! erm... hehe :P~~

    purgatory: madree shagool...im just going to leave this as is, i said what i had to say to your anti-grammatical ways (!)
