Lets feed the trolly trolls!!

Hot damn, it's a slow news day in my house hold - how about yours? 

I thought that today we would pass some time and feed the trolls, my intriguing little followers who seemingly cannot stand me yet trawl my blog, facebook, twitter and instagram looking for stuff to complain about and hate on. 

I don't really understand how they operate but they do provide me with entertainment. They are like mythical creatures, never show up in real life but everyone has a story about one! 

Anyway, today we pay tribute to my latest odd ball comment.

I took the liberty of blacking out part of the comment as that said the amount that our home cost, and I don't think that's really public knowledge. 

Anyway, anonymous, you have made me see my crazy ways. What was I thinking?!

I have cancelled all furniture orders and have decided to sleep on the floor, and use upturned milk crates for the majority of furniture, maybe we will get lucky and the milk crate will come with milk bottles that we can use for dining utensils too. Double whammy right there!!



The Baby is going to sleep in some form of box, or maybe even a top drawer in the kitchen since we already have those installed. 
I think she can probably get away with not wearing nappies or clothes also. I mean hey, babies didn't always have nappies did they? If the cave women could manage - so can we! 

I'm not going to get a car, I'm going to rely on my handy bicycle and public transport instead. 
I might even try my hand (thumb) at hitch hiking and see how we go.  I shall report back.
That would make a great blog post after all. 



I mean really, who needs modern comforts like a house and furniture these days anyway? 

I am just not sure what I am going to clean when I become such a perfect little 'housewifey' now that I have cancelled my orders, but I guess I could rake the dirt for ground that I am now going to have instead of carpet or floor boards so that should pass some time. 


By the way, it would appear that you do not know how babies are made because if we plan on having lots of babies, we probably need to have lots of sex which in turn would keep The Husbands **** pretty clear of cobwebs.

Unless we have been doing it wrong and that is just a lie that my mum made up when I asked her how babies are made but I am quite certain that we did just that to make this little bun in my oven. 

Anyway, it's time for me to put a meal on the table in preparation for when The Husband gets home, after all I have been sitting here starving just waiting to serve him.  That's what houswifeys do after all  don't they? I'm going to be good at this.

  1. Ahhhhhhahahahahahaahahahahahahaahaaaaaa I am SO proud of you haahahahahahahahahaahaaaa

    ahhhhhhhh this is BRILLIANT!!!

    I hope the meal you make doesn't go on a table though, do you have any idea how selfish it would be if you used an actual table?!?!

    Brilliant post doll, brilliant.

  2. You might want to sleep on straw...might be a bit more comfortable :p

    Seriously...have people nothing better to do than diss on you, S, the baby, your house and your car etc?

    Someone needs a good bitch slap.

  3. Wow. You actually get idiots like this commenting?? What the hell is wrong with people?

    Don't let them bother you, they obviously have no life and take pleasure in such idiocy.

  4. Oh Mez! I have never commented on your blog but this is simply hilarious!
    Just made my day :)

  6. What the hell is wrong with people? Mez, do you know who that nasty comment was from? They seem to know a lot about you.

    Great post. Now get back to the kitchen.

  7. I might be wrong, but I thought you named this blog Domestic Divinity in jest, because you weren't very 'domestic'?

    I think a psychologically normal person who didn't like you would just not look at your blog again or at least not comment. People who post anon comments like that are jealous & a bit weird. Do they not have anything else to occupy themselves with?

    1. You are correct, that poor husband of mine does me proud and eats all of my home cooked meals - despite them tasting like rubber haha.

    2. We could swap recipes/or our significant others could form a support group. I can fill a kitchen up with smoke without any visible signs of burning on the actual food & most of what I make tastes awful.

  9. It never ceases to amaze me how lovely people online become targets of anonymous hatred. I'm so sorry that you're subjected to this (even if it is vaguely entertaining for you). I have to say, this doesn't really sound very anonymous to me though.

    It sounds like a very jealous, bitter and rather unhinged ex girlfriend of your husband's (or perhaps she [yes, I'm assuming this is some very female-flavoured bitchiness] just wishes she was). I can see no other reason why someone would direct anything other than congratulations your way.

    Your post did manage to make me laugh, despite the rather sad catalyst. I'm glad you have such a great sense of humour about it all. I doubt the trolls realise how little you care about their opinions when you are blissfully happy and enjoying creating this amazing new life and family and home with your husband who adores you :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Well done. I have no idea why people stalk people whom they apparently hate. It really indicates some sort of masochism.

    Great response. Best blog post I've seen in awhile.

  11. Too funny!! I literally started laughing out loud on the treadmill and everyone looked at me really strangely :)

    Whoever made that comment is obvi v bored with their own silly life if they would do that!! Don't let it get to you, you are fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm a friendly anon! Love you Mez, sorry you have haters.

    This post was hilair but it sounds like the hater knows you (they knew how much your house costs...) is this the case? And if so do you know who it is?

  17. Good on you Mez! I love your blog, your writing style, and adore your wit but you have outdone yourself this time and put this pathetic excuse for a human well and truly back in their place. Congratulations on all that is going on in your life at the moment. I guess some people are just jealous of anyone who is happier than them.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ahhhhhhhhhh!!! I wouldn't even bother dedicating a post to these losers. It makes me actually sad that there are people like this out in the world. What is even sadder is I'm sure that they would HATE it if people said the things they say to you, to them.

    Come on people, didn'y your parents raise you to follow the golden rule? do unto others as you would have them do to you? Seriously... Im not even religious.. that is just common freaking sense!!

    STOP TROLLING!!! This is like 'mean girls' in the real world... we as women have fought so damn hard to get respect in this world and yet here were as - WOMEN dissing WOMEN! women trying to put other women down? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

    Jealously... that is all I can think of!

    Sad times really.

    Keep being you Mez.

  19. They know the price of your house? So weird. Do you use Statcounter? You can track ip addresses based on the time they leave the comment. Could come in handy should a face ever pop up in your bedroom window one night (EEK).

    Sounds like tall-poppy syndrome, not that I would have thought being a wife and a mother is the usual criteria for being a tall poppy!

    Again, so weird. But so entertaining, post more hahaha

  23. Who would bother wasting their time writing on a blog they obvious don't like?? Must be very bored and strange to waste their time.

    I love reading your blog I hope it doesn't discourage you to continue writing!!

    I wonder, does this person live without material things? Prob not! People work hard so they can purchased things they will enjoy/need

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ah mez... I usually don't like giving this person any acknowledgement but this is hilarious! I look forward to visiting u and eating out of recycled take away containers using plastic cutlery whilst sitting on milk crates with our feet on the dirty floor lol xxxx

  25. Bahahaha...hilarious.
    I can't believe people actually do this...who has the time and energy??
    I have to agree with Mel on the women dissing women thing...just why?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Clearly jealous. Slightly creepy they know how much your house cost ... Too much time on their hands Internet stalking. The cobweb part was a cracker!!!! Hahaha. I love that you called them on it too ... Go Mez!!

  27. Dear bitchy anon who left aforementioned comment,

    Nobody cares about your jealous little rant, least of all a lovely young lady who will soon be bringing a little baby into this world.

    Shame on you for being so small-minded and big-mouthed, such an unfortunate combination of traits.

    What we do care about in this world is honesty (something Mez has plenty of), positivity, kindness, humour, love, joy and friendship. Why don't you focus your energy on demonstrating these things instead? If you can't get over your own hostile feelings then maybe you should leave this blog alone.

    I hope you learn to deal with your issues without the use of abusive behaviour.

    <3 Peace out.

  28. It's obviously just pure jealousy! I don't understand some people, if they don't like you for whatever reason they should just stop reading and live their own lives rather than making ridiculous comments. Love all your posts and look forward to reading more!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, I can't believe people will stoop so low...they really must be unhappy with themselves, even if they were just envious of your life why can't they just leave it out of the Internet? It only makes them look pathetic!

  31. What what? You were planning on buying furniture for your new house??? WHO DOES THAT?????

    I'd like to see this person's house and it'd be interesting to see the dynamic of his/her relationship too (if someone would ever love someone like that...). I bet they pay 50/50 on absolutely everything. Even a lollipop to share. Sounds riveting!

  32. I agree that it sounds like this person knows you. Obviously whoever it is has way too much time on their hands

  33. How bizarre-o. How do they know the cost of your house? Scary scary creeper.

    Great post. I definitely got a laugh out of it! xx

  34. Bhahahahah! Mez you crack me up.
    You handle this so well & I'm glad as I love reading your blog & I'd hate for the haters to ruin it for us who are fond of you.

    I am alittle concerned they knew the price of your house? Could this person know you personally?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Seriously concerning that they know the price of your house.

    What a coward, hiding behind the internet as an anonymous person.

    People think I'm a cave woman because I cloth nappy my baby...hello people, I use MCN not terry towelling squares and pins! hahaha

    Good on you, this is why I love your blog. You're so honest and hilarious.

    2. And hey, there's nothing wrong with terry towelling squares and pins- that's all I had on my bum when I was a kid (mum says my sister and I toilet trained really young thanks to cloth nappies)- I think it makes you smart, not a cave woman, because of all the $$ you save :-p

      I can't believe some of the comments Mez cops on here. Actually, I can (people suck) however so many of them are so spiteful and they just make me feel sad for the anon coward who posts them.

    3. Thanks guys. I wore terry towelling squares as a baby too!
      My sisters got me into MCN and they have an online business that sells them, so I get them cheap MWHAHAHA
      I thought it would be a lot more hard work, it is actually really easy - yay!

    2. Yes, when the husband is at work and you have a tiny baby you do need a car. There is nothing wrong with having a car.

      Delete
    3. There is nothing wrong with your husband paying for your car, either. You are part of a team.

  37. Did you out bid this jealous person at the auction ? Your blog is delightful, fun and entertaining - you work hard, your husband works hard you both deserve all the luck, love and furniture for your future life together in your new house with your new baby.

  38. Thanks for sharing - lucky you can laugh it off!

    I wonder if they know you personally as well. Creepy!

    I will never understand why some people feel the need to spread their misery to others.

    ReplyDelete
  39. As I can see a lot of people are defending you.
    Let me remind you that yes there are people jealous of you and yes you do seem to have quite an easy lifestyle.
    Let me remind you that there are some people that DO rely on public transport with thier children.
    Not everyone is as fortunate as you. To get married at 22 and have everything thrown at her feet.
    Undoubtedly you probably wont ever return back to work and be the token mother that will probably drive her 3 kids around and speak about nothing else when meeting up with your friends as your lift will be so empty and S will be at the office working overtime with his hot PA while you look through your old blog photos and see how much your breast augmentation is changed since you have had three little tackers chewing on them.
    The beauty of blogging is that people can write things that they want anonymously like I am now.
    Fair enough you get spoilt with all these things that you blog about and have such a luxurious lifestyle and also first world problems like your wedding dress being ruined by your mother in law boohoo.
    Try having some real problems first then maybe you wont get so many trollers looking at your page and ripping into you .
    Maybe if you didn't expose yourself so much through the blogging world. Bloggers wouldn't be able to look up the price of your house and put it all over the net. Sorry but that's a bit too much for me. But your right I don't have to read it.
    Have a good think about this.... Remember that the divorce rate is also 1 in 2 and nothing lasts forever and the fairytale does undoubtedly end one way or another.

    1. Let me remind you that I catch public transport every day, so yes I am well aware.

      I am very fortunate to have a husband who works very, very hard to support us both as well as he does.

      I don't quite understand why you think I have everything thrown at my feet though. I work full time, like most people, and I pay bills and the same things that others do - I'm not a lady of leisure :) You sound quite bitter about something which is unfortunate.

      Sorry to break it to you but I am only taking 1 year maternity leave with the intention of returning to work 2 days per week. Even if we can afford for me to not return to work on a 2 day basis, I am sure that I will need it so I do not go insane, but honestly I wont know until the time comes.

      I feel sorry that something has happened in your life to make you think that all mothers have empty lives and all hard working husbands are at work having affairs with their PA's.

      I don't care how my breast augmentation turns out - after all, implants only have a ten year life span anyway, I would prefer to feed my children (hoping I can breastfeed!) than have a perky boob job when I am 40 lol.

      I am very lucky to only have 'first world problems' but it is fair to say that I do not blog about 80% of my real life issues. What a downer that would be.

      Sorry to hear that you live in such a negative world, try smiling and looking on the bright side every once and a while.

    2. Honestly get a life and get off her blog! I could rant and rant about this for ages. Run away anon, you don't have to read it so don't. Not even going to try and make sense of the lunacy you have just typed. Your obviously a sad sad women.

      Delete
    3. So you are suggesting that Mez shouldn't be enjoying every minute of a wonderfully joyous time in her life and should spend it worrying about the bad things could possibly happen in the future? I'm sorry, but that's just crazy

      Mez should be thankful (which is very obviously is!!) about the blessings in her life, not sorry for them. Congratulations Mez, and well done on creating such a widely read blog xx

      Delete
    4. I am now going to defend her from you.

      You, anon, have NO idea what Mez's life is like.
      M's blog is a very slim slice of her life, it's a happy, sometimes sarcastic, laugh out loud, silly slice.
      Rarely does she write about something that's not positive.
      She could though, like all bloggers.
      I know for a fact that she could tell stories which would make you think twice, question the world around you.
      But the truth is: she doesn't have to, has no obligation to and doesn't want to tell those stories to you.
      Instead she focuses on the things which make her readers smile and laugh.

      As bloggers we pick and choose what we present to the world, that way we can protect the people we love, our workplaces and ourselves.
      We have the privilege to do this because, at the end of the day our blogs are our own penmanship.
      Yes, we write for our audience but surprise, surprise we also write for ourselves.

      Maybe if you stepped back and realised that she is exposing far less of her life than you think, then you could get your head around the idea that there is much more to her than what she publishes on the internet.

      Mez is a friend with integrity, intelligence and honesty.
      I'm lucky enough to be friends with her outside of blogging.
      I value her far beyond the internet world which you know her in.
      Fortunately her values and personality have meant that you're words haven't brought her down, she's much, much stronger than that.

      Good luck to you, I hope you're not too concerned about her fairytale future, because I'm not and neither is she.

    5. I don't think that the Anonymous above is really as biting and sarcastic as they seem to think. What's with the patronising and misogynistic assumptions about stay at home mums, and the crude comments about your breasts?

      According to this Anon, no one without 'real' problems (presumably as defined by Anon) is allowed to blog. Perhaps Anon should begin with a little proof-reading to recognise the inconsistency in their comment: you apparently have no 'real' problems which is why you attract trolls. but you also 'expose yourself' too much, which is why you attract trolls. Ahem ...

      Kudos to you for a gracious and measured response Mez. Personally I'm snorting with derision and think that Anon requires an immediate injection of red wine and chocolate to help them deal with their obvious case of 'poor me-ism'.

    6. Maybe a little proof reading to prevent all those spelling and grammatical errors too!

    7. Sad person, who obviously is jealous of you and feels the best way to prop herself up is to slag you. Well haven't we come far! Where is the respect for the sisterhood!! I absolutely hate b!tches like that, there is no other word for it.
      Me your an angel, good on you for handling it with such grace and humour you are obviously a very secure and strong woman

      Delete
    8. If you want to stand by your convictions without being a coward then dont do anonymously! Jealousy is a curse and it must be cold living in Mez's shadow. I pity you and you should pity yourself (which you clearly do) try spending some more time creating some opportunities of fortune for yourself - not being so jealous of the fortune of others.

      If you didnt comment anonymously I would respect your perspective although I wouldnt believe in it, but a faceless insult is gutless - and worthless.

    9. Lol Anon, what a poor life you lead. I had (and still do) have a rough life & struggle everyday, in your words I "should" be jealous of Mez, but I'm not. I absolutely LOVE coming on here & reading about how good life can be for others, it gives me HOPE doesn't make me jealous. You are such a bitter, unrealistic person who obviously needs to get their head out of their ass and focus more on your own life & maybe you won't feel so unachieved. As many others have said, and will say, you have no idea about Mez's past or current problems, bloggers only show you what they want you to see, after all if she got on here posting about things that were going wrong, and how depressing stuff was, who would read it? Only people like YOU who love bringing others down. Grow up and get over yourself, spitefulness isn't a favoured trait.

    12. I am so speechless at this anon commenter. The only conclusion I can come to is that they are jealous based on their perception that everything has been thrown at your feet, Mez.

      This blog, like every blog, is a slice of someone's life. If you choose to focus on the good, then good for you. Obviously more people like it than hate it, you know? It's unacceptable for people to harass you like this.

      Delete
  40. What!? You need a house to live in and a car to drive the baby around in? No way? *Sarcasm*
    That person is obviously just jealous! And doesn't have a clue.
    I'm pretty sure that the husband wouldn't be with you if he didn't want to have that life with you and he wouldn't be buying houses, cars and providing for a baby that is also his if he didn't want it.
    Apparently there are a few people that didn't get taught that if they didn't have anything nice to say, to say nothing.

  56. Love love love your response! What a sad, boring person they must be! Even sadder that they actually think you're going to read their comment and think 'hey, you're right!' ugh.. seriously, so pathetic.
    And please do keep blogging about your house/furniture/babies/hubby, the rest of us love it!

  58. It's so STRANGE that people assume just because you don't share the downtimes that you never have them! I don't have a blog but if I did I would treat it like facebook - keep it fairly light & fun - I personally don't think the net is the right platform for the dark/sad personal subjects. I would prefer to talk to my friends, family or husband face to face. I can only assume this is how you feel too. Bah to them. Keep blogging! love your candid style

  59. Thank you Mez! I needed a good laugh this morning.

    Man, if anon hates 'people like you', I think anon would hate many people who read your blog.

  60. Hahahaha, this is your funniest post yet! As long as you remember how lame these people are, their comments really can be very amusing.

    I'd like to know what that psycho's career ambitions are though. Perhaps he/she thinks telling people they are living their lives wrong is a charitable service?

  61. As a non-blogger I only really learnt about these trolls who abuse people from behind their computers after the Charlotte Dawson incident. I can't believe people can be so malicious! I just want to say I read your blog regularly and it is lovely light-hearted entertainment talking about what seems like a regular, everyday woman. I think any sane person knows you blog probably 30% of your life and obviously, it is your choice to blog the more positive aspects. No one knows what goes on truely in a blogger's private life. I am glad you don't let this vicious minority get to you but I am sorry you have to even read such horrible things. These people need to get a life! Philippa

  62. I love Maryanne! Whenever I get time during the day I always sneak on her blog to see if there are any new updates! She is inspiration to young girls everywhere! Its great to read about a woman with interity, values and respect. You are the inspiration for my upcoming blog too Maryanne. Don't doubt the love and admiration you have from your many many followers.

  64. Yeah, they aren't that clever finding out your house price, it's not that hard to do. Just weird and stalkerish.
    Are you telling me that after 3 kids, 17 years of marriage ups and downs that I shouldn't have freaking cobwebs! We have them all around our house! Add to it a full time working mum and dad with and 2 businesses to run and our cup run eth over. Seriously though, working on relationships is truly the most important job ever, wife, mother, sister and friend. I think you can be guilt free when buying whatever material things you like, you work, so does your hubby and are happy to pay your own way, you aren't expecting anyone else to fill that house, just yourselves making a family home- how exciting!
    Everyone has their issues and problems. It's how you handle them and deal with them that makes you the person you are. It's all character building. I think your nasty commenter missed that life lesson.

  65. Iam also a friendly Anon. :) Its really sad Trolls feel its okay to attack an innocent pregnant woman. Grow a heart, Troll!

    Mez don't give the Troll any more attention by giving them a post dedicated to giving them explainations/justifications for your life. You deserve everything you have and no one has the right to judge otherwise. The Troll has bigger than normal problems ie they certainly have a few nuts and bolts missing.

    I wish there was a way to expose them!! How did Charlotte Dawson do it?

  68. Happy people are happy to see others' happiness. People who feel they have to bring someone down for enjoying and sharing the joy of life can only be very, very sad.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I find the situation quite creepy because it does seem to be someone who knows you personally. It's not clear whether there are multiple trolls or just one. It's good that you are able to see the light side of it in any case and you should continue to do so, but I would also be somewhat concerned if I was in your position. It seems to be a bit of an unhealthy obsession (most probably harmless, but strange nonetheless).

  70. Do not change your bog ... I repeat do not change your blog. That troll lass sounds rather dull and obvious. You on the other hand are refreshingly honest and so cheery. Absolutely no crime in enjoying a new home, lovely husband, your youthful beauty and the birth of your first child. Jelly perhaps? Such a shame little troll ... You too may have this things if you turned your analysis inwards and were really honest about why you are so nasty. So transparent it makes me feel quite sad for you.

  71. Hi Mez, I'm a long time anonymous reader, first time commenting.
    Girl, You tell that troll where to go!! You had me in stitches!! lol....
    She's probably an old dried up spinster living with 20 cats and who's vajay-jay is in serious need of a ****!

    What is it with people who think that stay at home mums live an "easy life"? i'm a young stay at home mum myself with 2 kids under 2 and by no means do I live a life of leisure. i do admit that I am lucky enough to be able to spend my days caring for my kids but like my husband says to me, he feels that he has the luxury of only working 9 to 5, whereas being a stay at home mum that's a job 24/7.

    i absolutely love your blog it takes a lot of guts to put your life out there to the world even if its just snippets of it. i'm glad you are able to find the humorous side to the negativity that is directed at you and not many people can do that...

    ReplyDelete
  72. You wouldn't share every aspect of your life with others in real life, so why would you do so online?

    I think the trolls comments say A LOT more about them than they do about Mez. Life must be miserable when you are so bitter and can't share in others joy.

    PS. I think I will have to get an acct so I stop posting as an anon as it looks trollish :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ooh cray cray trolls. How weird someone would be motivated to post something so outright nasty. Something's not quite right with their grey matter I think. Poor them.
    Anyway love your blog and the topics you choose to write about. Hope you and your lil bump are doing well x

    ReplyDelete
  74. Omg what a sad sad freak. I love Mez's blog because it reminds me to pay attention to the little things. I have a bad habit of sometimes getting into a negative slant on things, and reading here reminds me to be more positive.

    I'm also single working overseas so seeing Mez's posts about house/baby etc is kind of like living a little through her, a different kind of life. Go away trollface you obviously hate yourself as much as you seem to hate Mez!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think the best thing to do is just ignore such nasty people / comments
    As much as we friends / family / readers want to support Mez towards these horrible comments, I feel that they still won't stop as they don't see what they are doing is wrong
    I think we as the "better" humans must be mindful (and in NO way am I defending these disgusting low life comments / people) that we don't stoop to their level and attack back, 2 wrongs don't make a right! We don't know their mental state and who knows if they aren't depressed and could he suicidal, then we are feeding negativity as in a "troll" form back to them!
    It's a viscous cycle and one that's best left alone on the big wide world!
    I say Mez sweetie just delete them when you get them as they are just "junk / spam" mail that's ended up in the wrong inbox :)
    You know your life, you know your surroundings and that's all that matters xx
    Keep being YOU ;)

  76. Please please don't take this person's words to heart. I know they are only words but words can do a lot of damage, especially if used hurtfully over a long period of time.

    I think reading those anonymous comments should offend all women. When did we leap from women having choice when it came to their careers to women being vilified if they want to put motherhood first? Why can't we respect the decisions that other women and other couples make for their own lives when it comes to work and family? Only you and S know what is best for yourselves, your relationship and your future family.

    I only know about you what you have blogged, so don't know much about your work aspirations but honesty those choices are between yourself and your husband and frankly it isn't any of my beeswax.

    Stay strong Mez and try not to let these people get to you, make sure you have someone to talk to when it gets tough. If you need to step away from the drama again, I'm sure your readers will understand.

    Sending lots of kind thoughts you way :)

    1. What a lovely comment :)

      They don't upset me at all, I usually just roll my eyes and think how odd it is that they despise me yet take the time to read my blog! Baffles me.

  77. Bahahahahahhahahaha!!!!
    Whilst I agree that you shouldn't respond to these people as they absolutely LOVE the attention and reactions, this was the funniest response! Made my day!

    To the person who wrote the quoted commented, why on earth would you say S is buying all the baby stuff just for Mez? IT IS HIS BABY TOO! I'm sure he is sane enough to understand it's completely necessary to clothe, feed and provide the best possible life for THEIR new baby. The complete state of disaster your head must be in... there just aren't enough words to describe.

    What we can quite safely assume from the anon comments is this. It is a female who knows or has met Mez in real life. She is single and emotionally unstable, with only men as insane as her willing to keep her cobwebs away, though they are few and far between. She is older than Mez, but far less accomplished in life. She is very miserable and a highly negative person who can't stand the positivity that Mez radiates.

    Anyway, back to my happy life that I enjoy and live to the fullest because I'm normal and want to focus on all the positives in my life rather than the negatives.

  78. Oh Mez, sorry about all the crappy creepy people! In other news, I am curious about your baby plan! In the U.S. there's a growing conversation about whether to go all natural (check out The Business of Being Born, great documentary) or get an epidural (more common)... Maybe that's too much of a personal question, but I'm just curious about what's common in Australia and/or socially accepted. Lots of love & light going your way! N

    1. I don't have a birth plan except to have a baby at the end of it haha.

      I would like to TRY and have a natural vaginal birth without drugs to see if I could but if I have to have drugs or a c section then that's fine too!

      I had a low lying placenta in early pregnancy so thought I would be having a c section but it moved so it could go either way.

      Both are socially acceptable here! I think you do get some judgmental people but as far as I see it, as long as you give birth to a healthy baby who cares how they arrive!

      Delete
    2. I have a few midwife friends and they all say that the best birth plan is no plan other than the delivery of a healthy baby. Every one of them hates the pressure that is put on mothers by trends regarding whether or not to have drugs, where or not to have c-sections. They said every single person who was rigid when it came to expectations of how their birth would go was disappointed or felt some sense of failure so I think your approach is sensible :)

  79. The comment the anon made was mean spirited. But surely you do see that you winge about wanting this and this and an expensive stroller etc when it is unnessasary and knowing Slav I'd have to say it doesn't seem something he and his family would think is normal but over the top.

    1. You mustn't know him very well considering that nobody, not even his parents, would call him Slav.

    2. I don't understand why anyone cares what other people spend THEIR money on for THEIR child. If her husband didn't want these things I'm pretty sure he'd say something, unless you're implying the person you seem to think you know so well is a push over? You're a great 'friend' anon. As for the comment of these things not being things his family would think are normal, you've made it very clear that you don't have a baby and a young family. When you have a child you buy the things that you want for them and things that might make your life easier. Unless his family or Mez's family are going to be caring for this child 24/7 their opinions on the baby products her parents choose to use are irrelevant. Just because it's not something that family would have done doesn't mean Mez ans S shouldn't. Less than 20 years ago parents would smoke around babies, would sleep them on their sides and tummies and would put toys and blankets in their cots-these days we know that these are high SIDS risks. My point is that just because our parents did or would do something a certain way in relation to children, that doesn't mean it's the right thing now.

      We spent money on an expensive pram, I don't drive often and am out and about most days with the baby for hours on end. From experience I can tell you that a good quality pram is worth every cent!

      On another note, I had a blog a few years ago and had an anonymous commenter who would make comments like they knew me, including things that very few people would know, just like the price of Maryanne's house. It got to the point with this person started threatening me physically and I was really uncomfortable with the information they were finding and then posting online to harass me. It was stalkerish. What they weren't banking on was that my brother is a police officer and once we had their IP he and his colleagues were able to track them quite easily. Imagine my ex-colleague's shock when she had a knock on the door issuing her with a restraining order for stalking. The order also applied at work so she had to be moved to another floor of our building. Admittedly, the things she was doing and saying were a little more stalkerish than these anons but my point is that there can be serious consequences and posting anonymously online doesn't actually make you completely anonymous when you cross a line.

    3. How is how Mez and S spend their money *any* of your business. Furthermore, if you were friends with them like you suggest, why would you go against her husband's wishes and share his name on the blog. Poor form.

      Delete
  80. Three words: Tall. Poppy. Syndrome.

    Ignore them. I know it is hard but honestly, just ignore them. Get Disqus like suggested on FB. I would also be tracking the IP address and sending a stalker cease and desist, but I am litigious like that. Either you know this person or they have been doing some serious digging and that's not on. What you choose to make public should be your choice and nobody else's.

  81. I love this entry!! Good on you!! I wonder who the troll is? It seems from their latest comment (and previous ones) is that they know you IRL. Have you thought that it could be a co-worker?

    ReplyDelete
  82. The last bit about the cobwebs is the best.

    I think a certain troll was never given a copy of "Where Did I Come From?".

    ReplyDelete
  83. HAHAHA WTF anon?! Sure you're entitled to your own opinions, but to the extent of researching their home price?!

    Good on you Mez for not taking this to heart. Clearly the anon commenter has some unresolved personal issues. You've handled it so gracefully and with great humour. I for one, would've probably handled it the complete opposite way and been a gazillion times more insecure than I normally am. I salute you for your confidence Mez and it's something I look up to.

    And Anon, there's nothing to be jealous about...if anything, it's just a reminder that wonderful things can happen to just about anyone in life. And not everything wonderful has to come with a price tag. Perhaps you should focus on the positives in your life, however little and zone out the negatives. What do ya say Anon? Whether in real life or on the internet, everyone has their reasons. Don't just assume that because one is smiling on the outside that all is dandy on the inside. Let's not be selfish now.

  84. The off-hinged comments by the unidentified person is troubling but appears to be a 'normal' part of internet interaction.

    In real life people hide the hate and envy of their thoughts but on the internet they believe they have the licence to sprout every nastiness that enters their minds.

    You are intelligent and I am sure a bit of amateur psycho-analysis will suggest the identity of the hater. I am a stranger and can do it for you. See if it rings any bells. Ha,ha. This is always an interesting exercise.

    Most likely the comments are the handiwork of a 'friend' who smiles with you and acts pretty normal. Even go out of her way to be nice to you. In the meantime, she greedily wants your life. Thinks she deserves it more than you. Obsessed with you because she wants to understand how you have 'tricked' life into giving you all the things she desires - 'HER package of goodies'.

    Probably an older college friend, or a co-worker or distance relative.

    Female, employed, older (probably thirtyish), unmarried with a history of failed relationships, probably pretty but with some physical inadequacies.

    Either likes children a lot (always grabbing, hugging and kissing them) OR positively dislikes them (always pointing out their bad behavior, shuns them and speaks of not knowing how to relate to them).

    Someone who has lost control of her life as evidenced in abuse of food or drink or spending or other. Not too smart. Careless. Have not progressed beyond the emotionally age of, say 17. Experiences bouts of (undiagnosed and untreated) depression. Incapable of long-term life planning, yet is aware of, and horrified by, her lack of progress and growth.

    And so on.

    In short, a normal human woman, in a state of bitterness over the lack of love and lack of achievement.

    Humans are really terrible, you know.
