Google+ Hurt My Feelings

You may have to click on this picture to see what I am referring to. Google+ just hurt my feelings. amy and google plus


Dear Google+,

Why do your phrase notifications in such a way, a person feels immediately insulted and not-worthy? You couldn’t find a better, less personal way of telling me Amy hasn’t posted anything exciting to read on her account yet? Seriously. I feel like I’m being singled out and rejected by Amy’s site with those last two words….with you… being added.

Don’t be such a rude douche! Don’t you want people to like you?!



Now, for more important business.

Dear Readers,

I’ve mentioned my sister-in-law Amy before on this blog way back before Chef lost his mind. I got to visit with her when my friend and fellow blogger, Victoria flew me to Colorado in December 2012 to give me a rest from my heart-breaking life for a week. Victoria writes at Victoria Visits, In a completely random turn of events, Vic lived very near to where Michael, my brother, and his family did.

I have not spent a ton of time with Amy. As I’ve mentioned before, the five of us born to Mom have not maintained close relationships with each other for various reasons. I have, however, been her Facebook Friend for years, and I have laughed myself silly at some of the stuff she comes up with. Lately, we have been getting to know each other a little better, and I’ve decided to petition the courts so I can keep her in the family irregardless of her relationship with my brother.

Unfortunately, Amy has found herself at the beginning of that horrible journey through divorce I found myself taking a year ago. She and my brother have called it quits, although their story is different from mine. I hope you all will show her the same support and kindness you showed me in those terrible days.

She set up a blog today of her own, and since she is a born writer as well, I have a feeling it will be a tool for her in the same way it was for me, with the added bonus of being interesting to read. The website is at and I believe it is tentatively called I’m Just Sayin’. I was unsuccessful at convincing her to name it Amy Beershack, in a salute to the late, great singer, Amy Winehouse or Amy Does Denver, a shout-out that frankly, you should be ashamed of yourself for knowing about!

I know this is a rare second post for today, but while it is useful and productive to contemplate the deep meanings of life carved by tragedy and pain on your heart, it’s also a holiday, and I don’t want to enjoy the rest of my day on such a heavy note.

Happy Fourth of July, My Fellow Blogging Friends!

  1. Quite right Bird. Google are rude and thoughtless. It would have made a world of difference if they’d just added the word ‘yet’. It gives you some hope then.
