My day of feedback started like any other day. I woke up around 5:30am, baked an apple pie and brought it to the local orphanage. Next I went to the gym and worked out until 10, came home, made breakfast and sat in front of the computer with a cup of joe.
I began on Boston.com. I had commented previously on a story entitled “Obama Approves Largest Increase Ever in Taxes on Tobacco.” http://tiny.cc/eOfvj
I had engaged in verbal warfare with a fellow from capecod whose ideas were all over the place. First he was talking about the tax, then abortion… who knows what this fool was trying to get at. So I targeted him in all of his stupidity. The following is an excerpt
sarabel7 first I don’t smoke oh ya abortion are paid for with tax dollars, plan parenthood (third of its money in government grants and contracts)
If obama put a 20 dollar tax on gas then we ride bikes to thus he is telling us what we can and can’t do
After taking a trip to Boston, I decided to check out NY and my favorite science section. I commented on a story from March called “Bad Baby Names- A Boy Named Sue, and a Theory of Names.” http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/11/science/11tier.html
The article was not allowing anymore comments, so I sent an e-mail to the author J. Marion Tierney. – Here is what I wrote.
Mr. Tierney, (Marion)
I have a friend named Raghu-Ramman. I was at a football game with him and a drunk girl asked him if he was a meatball. I used to want a unique name but I’d rather blend in with the rest of the Sarah’s. I loved your article, and it gave me a few good ideas for the future if I ever have children of my own. “Garage Empty, Hysteria Johnson, King Arthur, Infinity Hubbard, Please Cope, Major Slaughter, Helen Troy, several Satans and a host of colleagues to the famed Ima Hogg (including Ima Pigg, Ima Muskrat, Ima Nut and Ima Hooker).”
After the Times, I took my daily jaunt to Facebook where I proceeded to graffiti up my sisters wall. I did an excellent job of embarrassing her and mocking her friends. I even made up a fantastic story about her soon to be prom date, Shawn Mason. He doesn’t know me and I’ve never met him, but the Belanger siblings are tough on prospective significant others.
Sarah Belanger I’ve got a message for Shawn Mason…Those brownies were for everyone and you ruined it! If I ever catch you stealing baked goods from the main office again I will hunt you down and make you lick the ants off the infested floors of this building.
Shawn Mason must have been very confused, and I met my procrastination quota for the day.
I also went on AIM. I hadn’t signed on in months ,ever since I realized that I haven’t talked to 99 percent of the people on my “buddy list” since 7th grade. I Imed a few folks, mostly got away message responses, but I did get asked on a coffee date by an old boyfriend. Online situations can often be awkward…which is probably why I avoid chat encounters.
So lets see, facebook, AIM, NY Times, Boston.com… We’re not done yet! Then I went to FML.com (fuckmylife.com) but the day had been good so far so I didn’t have anything new to post. I hung out on Digg.com for a while and found a funny comment thread about an 80-year-old train robber who wants parole.
Doubt he robs another train
he should. that would make him one of the most bad ass mother ***** ever.

Other sites I commented on include (perezhilton.com, wwtdd.com, reddit.com, BBC.com and back to facebook for my grand finally where I posted a link to my blog!!!
Overall, the day of feedback was a success. I may have even gotten a free cup of coffee out of it.
