    Dear Dotty,

    Sometimes that is all you need to say,
    ‘cos all the other words would just get in the way 😉

    Love AB xxx

  2. Try SHITE TWAT FUCK it may unlock something 😉

  3. Dear Dotty

    But if you were illiterate all you could write would be:

    Your humble servant in literacy

    Dave xx

    • Dear Dave,

      But it would make sense to ME. 🙂

      Love Dotty xxx

      • Dear Dotty


        I am reminded of what Edward Dyer wrote in c,1600

        My mind to me a kingdom is
        Such present joys therein I find
        That it excels all other bliss
        The earth affords or grows by kind

        I remain, dear scribe, your affectionate servant

        D xx

      • Dear Dave,

        I like that. 🙂

        Love Dotty xxx

      • Dearest Dotty

        Yes, isn’t nice. Something about it and the period made it quite touching.

        Touching or not, I remain your literary servant. 😉

        D xx

  4. Yup. Know that feeling.

  5. Aw you cra ha ha hack me up Dotty! Sometimes all I can say is motherfuckermotherfuckermotherfucker!!!!!!! And I feel a slight residue of guilt as my memory of my mum commenting that ‘…it’s only an insult to the person’s mother really, and very sexist’ crowds in. If I write as muthafucka then I can pretend I’m like a gangSTAR innit

  6. The power of words eh?, You may notice I’ve changed my muthafuckin name to ‘love’ as ‘bitchpig’ was causing offence left right and centre lol. I know I can always be Bitchpiglet here on your blog Dotty 🙂 How many bangers have you snaffled today?

    • Dear bitchpig,

      I saw your post and it left me so speechless I couldn’t comment. You’ll ALWAYS be bitchpig to me. I’ve envied that name since the day I first saw it and I LOVE IT TOO MUCH NOT TO CALL YOU IT but if you’d prefer I could call you The Actress Formerly Known As Bitchpig.

      Love Dotty xxx

  7. But it sounds so nice when you say it…

    🙂 oh. crap. that isn’t even a word.

  9. You capture both essential and existential fuck shite twattedness of the moment.

    • Dear Seb,

      Yes, I do, don’t I? I need to think of a lot more artistic gobbledy-shite to present my writing in a way that makes people think it’s clever. Where’s my dictionary? 😉

      Love Dotty xxx

  10. the howler and me

     /  September 11, 2012

    Dear Dotty,
    Sometimes that is all you really need to say.
    -the howler and me

  11. You’re so sentimental.

  12. Dear Dotty,
    That’s more than enough to choose from for the next word in your novel. How is that coming by the way? Are you up to five words yet?

    dear dotty-
    anything with FUCK in it is good… FUCK ME is even better
    UBS(of course bullshit rocks too)

  14. It does kind of say it all…..
