Um, did you ban me from your blog? My comments won’t go through

I’m sorry if I did anything wrong? You could have emailed me if you had an issue with anything. Sorry again…? I got new carpets put in the house last week, I was having an arthritis flare before that – things have been a bit hectic lately I didn’t mean to neglect commenting on your blog.

BF, I am moderating all comments these days, because I was concerned that ContentWoman’s posts would attract rabid feminists. In the event I got a lot of page views, but only a handful of offensive remarks. Anything coherent I let through.
I thought you might have been offended by the Sexy Nerdette blog on my blogroll.
I realise you are a busy young wife and you have health issues. Only comment if you like and when you feel like it.
I would like a guest post from you some time. At your leisure.
I hope you and your husband are well.

I don’t recall reading the “Sexy Nerdette” blog.
I appreciate your offer for penning a guest post, but I’m not sure if I’d be a good fit. I don’t know many Christians on the blogosphere who agree with my views or respect me. I’ll just end up getting called ugly or a racist slur. Alas, I’m too fragile for Christian blogosphere.

Anyone who is interested in “situating” the above poem should think about Robert Herrick, pastoral poetry, and Andrew Marvell and the “metaphysical poets” in general.

You have good taste. I grant you that.

If you are referring, infowarrior1, to the sheila in the picture, I just found her on the Internet by searching on “wedding corset”. I posted this poem and the picture while slightly under the influence of alcohol, so I am not sure of the propriety of the whole thing, but then I think a man should own his mistakes.
My wife did wear a wedding corset not unlike that, and to my eyes at least, she was as attractive as that woman.

That’s a nice photo and little poem. Love the combined imagery!

Thanks, Racer. The poem has been selected for an online anthology. I now have a brief bio here.
