When bad things happen to bad people – yummy

This is not today’s advice blog, as I still haven’t completed it yet.  Because I want to continue to generate interest and page views, I didn’t want to leave the blog inactive for too many hours.  Therefore, please click on the link below if you want to read about the happiness we feel sometimes when bad things happen to others.

I wrote this when I heard someone whom I loathe was very sick.  Unfortunately for me, apparently my bad karma of putting this out there resulted in her health improving.  Damn me and my big mouth!  Or pen, I should say.

If you have ever delighted in the misfortune of another, even if it’s me, have a read.  If you haven’t, you are very special and belong in a human zoo, far removed from the likes of me.

Next advice blog should be born around 4 p.m today, unless I can induce labor more quickly.
