Useless Dotty Strikes Again


Shitey Sunday Picture Post – NO

Post about the other day when little Emily came to see me – NO

Up to date with reading your blogs and answering emails – FUCK NO 

WHY? Because I’m USELESS. Not just ordinary useless, FUCKING USELESS.


BEING MENTAL  – the gift that never stops giving.

  1. Dear Dotty,

    Never ever ever think that you’re useless. You’re allowed to be human and fall behind now and then.
    And we’ll still love you, you silly Cumberland-sausage loving thing, you!

    Take a break, what the hell! – the sun is shining, and life’s too short too waste on worrying about missed posts.


    • Dear Anne banana,

      Thank you for being nice to me. I fall behind every week. I still hadn’t caught up from LAST week when I had another BIG MENTAL BLIP and now I’m even further behind.

      She-hermits don’t like it when the sun is shining. It makes the Hermititis UNFUCKINGBEARABLE. At least in winter I can pretend I don’t want to go out.

      Love Dotty xxx

  2. Dotty, there is no way you are useless. I have seen people who are useless, and they are far, far, FAR worse than you.

    You have taken a break, that is all 🙂

  3. Dear Dotty,

    As one of your readers who posts way too-fucking-much, you never have to stress about reading mine. Believe me, I am getting more out of them than anyone, and I’d be writing if I didn’t have any readers. And you’re not useless — I need you! Every day’s a crazy day with Dotty — I love how you write, and what you write about. 😎

  4. Dear Dotty,

    Please never stop being mental, because we all love you just the way you are.

    Love, Missus Tribble xxx

    Dear Dotty,
    You aren’t useless, you just need some down time.

    Not useless. If you were a razor at a covention of bald men then maybe. Alittle broken, but who’s not especially coming from me 🙂

  7. Have you ever had a cumberland sausage pizza?

  8. Dear Darling Dotty,
    It’s not a binding daily duty for you to answer emails, or read posts, or even make a post.
    K’nell, if I were to do that I’d be on the laptop 24 hours a day 7 days a week!
    Fuck ’em.
    Love yah

  9. Dear Dotty,
    No-one is useless, especially you. And anyway, I can’t now eat a Cumberland Sausage, or see the letter “O” without thinking of you, posts or no posts.
    Love Ziggy xxx

  10. Dotty,

    You’re not useless! You can fly! And also, you can make me laugh when I feel shitey. So you are very useful.

    We will still love you even if you don’t manage to put up a picture. I would post one here for you, but I can’t figure out how to put a picture in a comment.


  11. Been there. Hope you’re not there for long. Sucks being there too long.

    Dear Dotty, That’s why we love you so…. for you being mental. 😉 Love, Alphabet

    Hi dotty, “fucking useless with bells on” couldn’t be a better phrase to describe my current condition. Thank you for helping me find words because otherwise I couldn’t be bothered.

  14. We just want you to feel better, love. So you can spend lots of time being mental… and reading my novel… right, people? Are you with me?

  15. Sending love and tea & sympathy. And maybe even a cumberland sausage. Or six.

    I think we might just cope without the SSPP (TM) this week. If you’ve had a (as a former co-worker of mine used to say) day like a night (or even a whole week of days like that) then you need to do something to make yourself feel better. Eat some cumberland sausage sandwiches. Talk to your brick. Take some laudanum. Fly. Whatever floats your boat at a particular time. We, the strange people who inhabit your computer, are not likely to run away because you missed one tiny little SSPP (TM). And any who do run away because you missed one tiny little SSPP (TM) is clearly a) not worth bothering with and b) one of the so-called sane people who makes you think you’re mental when really it’s them who are mental.

  16. Dear Dotty,

    It’s overcast here. I’ll send you some of it.

    xoxo Mme Weebles

  17. Do the bells help?

  18. Dear Dotty,
    Love, Lis

  19. Don’t feel bad, or you’ll make me feel bad too 😉 Speaking for myself, I can get [at least] a week behind, kid myself into deleting second-tier follows by thinking “I’ll catch up on Reader”, and all is well. I have a scribbled list of to-be-done post ideas, and feed the beast by doing quick posts on elladee_images and places. I think of my WordPress buddies like I do my ageless, timeless girlfriends, if we don’t catch up for a while, life is busy, no hard feelings, and when we do, it’s like no time has passed 🙂

  20. You are NOT fucking useless. Fucking useless is Paul Ryan, inside or out. Fucking useless is Paul Ryan…oh, I already said that. Anyway, YOU are NOT fucking useless. You have always brought me a smile or a snarky thought, and that is very useful, my dear.

  21. Dotty,
    I think you’re pretty awesome. You’re not useless. You’re human. You have 27 likes in this one post. That doesn’t seem useless to me. You’re useful to many bloggers. Have a hopeful week.

    You know, I went to the grocery store today and saw some sticky notes. I remembered your sticky note post.

    Claudia 🙂

  22. Dear Mondrak, Judith, Missus Tribble, the howler and me, Benjamin, Chris, Grumpy, Ziggy, Kathy, jm, Alphabet, misslisted, pmao, fhc, Mme Weebles, Seb, Lisa, Ella, paralaxvu, Claudia,

    Thank you.

    I love you.

    Love Dotty xxx

  23. I don’t give a fuck if you visit my blog. I’ll still love you!
