This is an interesting acknowledgment Virginia. Curious did you ever acknowledge that to the person you called such – well let's face it you said more then that, but did you ever acknowledge that, that was hurtful, or does that only apply to you.Please don't dismiss those you don't know as trolls - it's very hurtful.
blah, blah, blah - whine, whine, whine
As far as being a fawn, I'll include myself even though I'm a bit old for that. I might fawn over Michael (I like him), but I also fawn over Manna (master truffle maker) and Violet (even though she doesn't like avocados) and sometimes over Mat or Sean and if he would let me I'd fawn over Greg too. To be honest there’s a lot of people I’d like to fawn over, because there are a lot of people that I like here. Even though I’m a bit quirky, everyone else seems a bit quirky too (even you) and in general I feel welcome here.
You made a comment once something like - why shouldn’t I be bolshie. I took it to mean let me be me – that seemed like good advice, but I don’t think bolshie has to be mean.
edited to remove some of the wine and cheese that would be better served before dinner
