Love is in the air???

First Tim Blair and his cohort were being cruel about the demise of Jeremy’s relationship and his online dating profile then I come across this post from “miss P”(aka Vicky Kasidis)
Were she describes the burgeoning friendship with an unnamed blogger…

Vicky Kasidis. aka Miss PIts the first time I have actually met someone on line in real person. What a weird experience. You know you speak to someone almost every day via MSN and discuss a range of issues, some political other personal and after some time you really get to know them without actually ever having met them. Miss P was a little nervous though quite excited at the prospect of finally putting a face and voice to the faceless and voiceless person she has been getting to know. So I made it to the chambers and there he was.

So we enjoyed a great afternoon together doing a little shopping, drinking coffee and watching a movie. It was funny though. We are both partially deaf so spent a good proportion of the afternoon saying ‘pardon’. Gawd it was funny though … Like a psyched out episode of George and Mildred.

My conclusions of the day. He was exactly as I thought he would be though that picture of him doesn’t do him justice lol so I will take a new one when we meet next week. Aside from that and the fact that I am yet to wear that WIG! It was all good. Im really happy to have made a new friend and one that is sincere and sweet.

So there you have it folks. That was my day. Twas all good.(source)

there are at the time of writing two comments to this post this is the second one

Jeremy said…

Likewise – it was good to meet you and I had a great time. Look forward to doing it again soon!

Could this be the promise of things to come?

At the risk of being accused of blogging malice it seems strange to me that some one who has protested long and loud about his privacy would not have asked his new paramour to be more discrete…
Any way I actually wish him well because even Greenies like him think and reason better when they are not feeling bitter and twisted about life.


I thought I was the first conservative blogger to comment on this “lefty lurve” but it seems that J F Beck has written about this blogosphere version of “The young and the Restless”as well with more lurid detail than I would dare. 😉

Update 2

Vicky seems rather surprised that her little post yesterday should ellicit two critiques from conservative bloggers and she thinks that JF Beck has written something that should be a case for the “Privacy Commissioner”

I’m also rather hurt that Hall would write such rot as I don’t think I have done anything to deserve such childish speculation. Though to be fair Halls post was rather low key and didn’t offend so much as amuse me. The Barrister Bewitched version however was rather below any acceptable standards of net manners and this person clearly needs to see a shrink fast. Their obsession with my orgasms, sexual activity, politics and spirituality is rather sad really. Its just a nasty, conceited piece of bullshit that should be taken down. Perhaps its one for the Privacy Commissioner …(source)

Sweetie if something that you are keeping private is revealed then THAT would be something for the Privacy Commissioner but when something that you yourself have made public is discussed it is a legitimate topic for criticism even if it is some thing as trivial as your Orgasms. As I said in the comment I have just posted to the piece I quote above

I have no doubt that you are a good person but If you don’t quickly develop some street smarts and realise that if you want your private life private YOU have to make it so then pieces like mine (or worse) are bound to be written.


Update 3

After much simpering and suggestive comments by Jeremy Sear tim has made passing mention of this little storm in a coffee cup and as Jeremy mentioned this post I thought that it was time for me to break my own self ban and post a comment at AL for some strange reason Jeremy did not want anyone to see this innocuous comment.

Tim’s comment is no more than an aside really and hardly enough to warrant this full on whinge piece.

Jeremy is an absolute hoot on this one because if he wanted to keep his love life private all he had to do was ask Vicky (miss P) for a little discretion. I defy anyone to read her post and not conclude that she has the biggest crush on Jeremy.
As Fang has pointed out Jeremy practically begged Tim Blair to make some comment about this little piece of gossip. As much he loves to play the victim card here the reality is that this is truly a case “me thinks he doth protest to much”

Thanks for the link by the way Jeremy 😉

Such a frightening musing from Moi that Jeremy just could not stand for it to stay in his comment thread
😆 😆 😆


  1. MrLefty says:

    LOL. Still obsessed, Iain. Would you like to know what I had for lunch?

  2. Iain says:

    No Jeremy but I do like to comment form time to time about what I find on my regular blog crawl. You do seem to have made quite an impression on Miss P though for her to write such a gushing post…
    As for the lunch menu, well I’ll pass but how was the movie?

  3. MrLefty says:

    Spiderman? Meh. If you go with low expectations it’s alright. The second one was better.

    I’m having a chicken stir-fry for dinner. I’ll keep you posted on what I have for dessert. ENQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW.

  4. Iain says:

    Ah but I have always had a soft spot for Kirsten Dunst…
    Dessert; dear oh dear, what do they say; seconds on the lips and an eternity on the hips….
    If you keep me posted I may add a side bar widgit “Mr Lefty’s menu… 😆

  5. MrLefty says:

    Would you like photos of the rubbish in my bin as well?

    PS How long do you think it’ll be before Timmeh posts on my having coffee with a blogger WHO IS A GIRL? I can’t imagine why he hasn’t already.

  6. Iain says:

    I can’t imagine why he hasn’t already.
    Well It’s not as if I would presume to advise you but there may well be some mileage in your pre-empting Tim by posting a piece at yours. I am sure that the fellow travellers may well be whipped up into a frenzy at the mere mention of Tim’s name.
    I’ll pass on the bin pictures but a cat photo would be nice…

  7. MrLefty says:

    Oh, I don’t want to pre-empt him. I’d rather he make an arse of himself like you and Beck have, before Vicky points out that she has a long-term partner and four year old child (as she’s discussed on her actual blog).

  8. Iain says:

    That Vicky has a partner and a child has been known by me for some time as I follow her blog.
    I’m just an old fashioned fellow who expects that a wife will not write soppy love letters to some one else in the form of a blog posts; Her latest effort certainly is a gushy Knee trembler of a post though.

    The only person who could possibly “make an arse of themselves” over this is you, depending on just how well you react to some good-humoured ribbing, after all it was you that decided that we were talking again wasn’t it?
    Other wise I would not have made anything of this at all.

  9. Iain says:

    Ps what about that cat photo? 🙂

  10. MrLefty says:

    “The only person who could possibly “make an arse of themselves” over this is you”

    Oh, don’t sell yourself short, Iain. You do have SOME talents.

  11. Iain says:

    Still waiting for that cat Photo Jeremy 😆
