Unsalted

Alright, tonight's post has some good news and bad news and news that is just generally fucked up. I'll start with the bad news, since it happened first if you're going chronologically.

The bad news: For those of you wondering what the hell is going on with LitelySalted and why the hell you've been staring at Winnie Cooper for the past month...Well, the site has been sold. By the looks of it, the process may soon be complete, and when that finally happens, well, who knows? Neither of us really knows for certain where this one is going, but que sera sera I suppose.

The good news, however, is that I'm not out of the gossip writing game. I've been hired as a writer over at popbytes, where I'll be adding a bit of snark to the proceedings. As much as I loved working for LitelySalted and as much as I adore Stacey, I have to admit, popbytes is pretty goddamn fantastic. So even if LitelySalted is dunzo (once again, not sure if it is,) at least I have somewhere to channel the haterade.

And now for the news that will make you go "Whaaaaaaa?!": a friend of mine, who I won't name outright, recently went quiet for a little while, and the official story was that she was in a terrible accident and hospitalized. Naturally, I felt awful, because she's always been a great friend to me.

And then I found out that she faked the whole thing.

Really.

From what I heard, there's a pretty sizable amount of evidence (and I do mean SIZABLE) that she wasn't in an accident and that she wasn't in the hospital and...Well, that she lied. I really don't want this to be true, since she's been a great friend to me, but on the other hand, the evidence against it is pretty much insurmountable. To be honest, I'm a little pissed. I know I'm not the most honest person in the world, but I can't say I would ever fake something that serious.

I'm not sure what her possible reasoning could have been behind this, but naturally I'm a little upset that she felt the need to lie about something this extreme. I'm sure her actions don't speak for themselves here, but the idea that she could blatantly lie about something like this just makes me feel like an idiot for trusting her. It doesn't negate the wonderful things she's done for me, but I have to say, if this is true, I am extremely disappointed.

Anyway, this has been a horribly depressing and kinda scatter-brained blog post, so I'm just going to wrap this up before it gets any worse. Cheers.

Dude. Popbytes. That's great! That site and Pajiba came up around the same time. MK is a really good guy, and knows how to design a website. (I think he's got pretty good LA connections, too). Congrats.

As for that other thing, yeah.

Great news that your wonderful yarns still have an airing. It would be a very sad world without your highly entertaining observations. As you know - I am a great fan Jeremy.

Congrats on Popbytes, man, that's great! I didn't know LitelySalted had been sold, and that kind of stinks. Hopefully Stacey made some money, though.

As for the friend with the horrible accident, you have NO idea how pissed I am. Just...angry.

So, yeah, and then that happened...

Sorry for the sad news but glad that you had good news too. That was odd about your friend. It is hard to understand. I hope that you are feeling well and your health is good. Just stopping by to give you a hug. Mark

Robert: I know you are, and I thank you :P

Snath: Well, it might not be dead...Honestly, it's still up in the air.
