Please Excuse This Brief Moment of Sincerity
It will only be a momentary lapse, I assure you. But I just couldn't keep going on without saying a gigantic THANK YOU to all of you for tossing me such lovely bouqets of condolence, love, and support in the wake of my father's death. You all have been so sweet and have thereby not only bolstered my mood and cushioned my blow, you've proven that people who lurk on gossip blogs aren't always heartless, bitter wretches acting out imaginary gripes with one hand while throwing poisoned things at a celebrity dartboard with the other. You're the best, kids, and I'm proud to know you!!! Now let's get on with more kvetching.
PS: Just please tell everyone to stop playing Luther Vandross's "Dance With My Father Again" everywhere I go!
