I've now had two blog comments from one engelbertsillyname. The first one I thought might just have been yet more (albeit rather odd) blog spam and got deleted, but the new one clearly wasn't. Before approving it, I thought I ought to take the opportunity to reply. The comment reads as follows:
Please tell us more about your medication. We find it so interesting.
What's wrong with you anyway, weirdo? Get a job and get a life.
Mr Sillyname, a dynamic-IPed Tiscali ADSL customer, appears to have been be reading all of the SUCS Blogs on a daily basis since discovering them via Jo's website on 29th July, using, of all things, Internet Explorer 7 under WinXP with some highly dodgy-sounding add-on called "SaveWealth". He's almost certainly not a SUCS member, not having SSHed to silver in the lifetime of the current wtmp, so it's slightly odd that he spends so much of his time reading SUCS members' websites.
He clearly hasn't spent enough time reading my blog though, otherwise he'd know what's wrong with me - or rather was, but now isn't. As for getting a job, it clearly hasn't occurred to him that having one already would be a prerequisite for any successful application for Income Support.
The thing that really gets me though is why he feels it necessary to post what I assume to be sarcastic comments to my blog suggesting that he's bored of reading about my medication, when he's doing so entirely of his own free will and then has the cheek to tell me to get a life... The thought occurs to me that perhaps he actually does want to hear more about my medication, in which case, I have a treat for him:
Having finished the last of my Sodium Bicarbonate on Monday, I started on the frusemide prescribed at yesterday's clinic this morning, which has been doing its job spectacularly well - I had to go for a wee about once an hour after taking it. I know what Jacques (one of the ex-Southend Renal Unit patients who had a transplant about a month before me) meant when, having told him I was starting on frusemide, he said he felt he'd end up just being a puddle when he started taking it.
BTW, I had thought of creating a new Blog category - "Moron" or similar - for this entry, but decided to interpret "Funny" as in "in the head" instead.
