*not* for widespread people-pleasing































The first comment on the last post is hilarious! "i thought i was a blog about dancing. turns out its a blog about being a fucking idiot." Hahahahahaha, that made me laugh pretty hard. I appreciate Greg and the second anonymous standing up for me, but being called an idiot online doesn't make me sad all righty? In fact, it cracked me up hardcore- and I needed a laugh! : )

Anyways, the diss/joke/confusion about my blog title tells me that I need to explain where the title of my blog came from, although I'm sure I have posted this same shit at least once in 2 years of bullshitting. If I did, oh well, here it is again. The full title of my blog is the title AND the heading together: "Those who dance are considered insane by those who can't hear the music." It is a quote from my comedy hero- the late, great, rude, crude, always angry and incredibly hilarious George Carlin! The quote was too long for a title, so I split it up into the actual "title" part as well as the thingy that goes under it (I can't remember if it's called the heading or description or something totally different) using this "..." 3-dot crap. That is why my blog is known as, "Those who dance..." For those of you who already knew that, you didn't hafta read this paragraph. Ha ha.

Greg wanted me to clarify something from the last post: there is a story behind the illustration that I posted. A little kid drew that picture for school and handed it in to her teacher, who thought that the girl was drawing her mother as a stripper or pole-dancer. So she called in the girl's mama and asked her what she did for a living, and the mama said she worked at Home Depot as a saleswoman. They asked the girl what was up with the drawing, and she answered, "It's you at Home Depot, mama, selling a snow shovel to people!" I just thought it would be funny to post, because I have a little girl and I was a stripper... whatever.
If you didn't like it, I don't much care; this blog is for me, *not* for widespread people-pleasing. I may want everyone to be happy, but I tend not to care what anybody thinks about me personally. But of course anyone who has been reading me for a long time already knows that. Till next time...

that previous post with the childs drawing... gosh, that made my day! have to forward that to my momma & sister. just goes to show you the sheer innocense of children! that second photo is my favourite. i bet you are looking forward to her 1st christmas, i assume you will be spending it with the family. hope you have a wonderful day. keep up the good work- when my sister had her twins everybody presumed she would be a dismal failure and would not be able to cope. she totally proved them wrong and 6 years down the line she has beautiful girls who are thriving, a wonderful home and is one year away from graduating with a degree. nobody thought she could do it. keep up the good work shelly and seriously, you should think about writing a book! have a good christmas xxx

No widespread people pleasing, I guess you did change careers and you know kids don't grow so fast that you have to take a photograph every five minutes and then post them all. otherwise life is good.

Great first holidays for your daughter. I give you 3 months before you're back whoring on the street full time. And custody of the kid will be long gone.

I will make a prediction, that in 3months, you will be the same dirtbag that you are today and that the custody of your brain will be long gone.

Also, that your many friends will dwindle to one (your mother), probably do to your phenomenal insight, Have a Merry X-Mass, dirtbag!!!

anon 1101- Where the fuck did that come from?

Greg said...

Michelle read your E-Mail that I am writing now, Greg

I could see it all coming, Its those fucking kids they fuck up the crazy life, You're gonna have to get a cool job something cool, you should help people, unless your already working. Dig the kid.

Maybe, just maybe, they got it from opiophile.

Seriously Michelle, you might want to wise up. If you don't want people to throw stones at you, don't openly tell others your future plans.

What I think anon 1101 didn't post of your comment, was that which was most interesting. "I cannot lose what i have...", hate to break it to ya kid, but yeah ya can. Especially in the situation you are in. I don't know if that was a desperate plea that you don't want to lose what you've now got or that you think you can't lose what you've now got. Keep on planning your demise and sure enough it will come.

And Greg...do you want to see her back on the streets full time? Oh yeah wait, I forgot...she is your main meal ticket. Douchebag.

Hey Gorgeous,
Yes that person is right, Your parents always have a lot of good food in thier house and they don't seem to mind if I indulge or shell I say, "raid the refrigerator" ! !

Yes and Michelle is my main squeeze. Jasmyne is also most important to me!!!

But I would like to pass on the douchebag allegation.

Have a happy New Year, I know I will, with a full stomach and my main girl and daughter by my side!!! Love Greg

Ah, it's your words so you know where they are from. So now we also know that your pimp is the father and your trashy parents accept your Jerry Springer situation. It's all good as your kid will have a better chance once you lose custody-- which you will.

Michelle said...

I love all your anonymous predictions... not a single motherfucking one has come true yet, so try try again I suppose?

Michelle
We want an update, I know you are not perfect, just like everyone else (Imagine that)! !

And baby Jasmyne takes up a lot of your time, but your blog is great ! !

Please try and fit in some time (atleast once a week if not more) for your extended family (your blog readers).

This extended family, even includes some of the more disagreeable people, whom seem to have nothing good to say (you can not pick your family, your stuck with what you get).

Love you, baby Jasmyne and your blog !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trish said...

Hey girlie.

BLOG God Damnit!

Need a Christmas update...
I want to know how the first Christmas was for that poor, abused little baby girl ;-)

I want pictures too! I bet she had more fun with the wrapping paper than any presents.....

Trish said...

I totally forgot to mention too.. I agree with Naomi, that second picture is AWESOME!! I actually think the 2nd and 3rd pictures in this particular post are my favorites so far!!

Also forgot to mention to all the ignorant fuckwads out there.. YOU DON'T LOSE CUSTODY OF A CHILD for simply using drugs OR prostitution. Actually, you don't lose a child for being a drug using prostitute either... You CAN lose a child for neglect or child abuse. Sorry dumb fucks, this child looks a little on the spoiled side to me. No signs of neglect or abuse... so get a fucking life.

You're doing a great job Shell-- keep up the good work!!

Greg said...

Hey Gorgeous,
I like the picture that was taken in the stroller.

In this picture, Michelle, I and my daughter, went to the store, and got caught in the rain (torrential), on the way back. I ran with the wind and tried to dodge the rain drops, but to no avail.

By the time that I arrived back at the house, Jasmyne was wet but did not seem to be upset, on the contrary, as you can see, she seems quite amused!!!
