Egomania

Posted by That Other Mike on 21/05/2009

Egomania is an obsessive preoccupation with one’s self[1] and applies to someone who follows their own ungoverned impulses and is possessed by delusions of personal greatness and feels a lack of appreciation.[2] Someone suffering from this extreme egocentric focus is an egomaniac. The condition is psychologically abnormal[3] and has been attributed to various historical figures and celebrities.

    She’s off the deep end, I tell ya. She was unsuccessful in getting WordPress to make me remove her email from my blog (that pesky fair use thing, you know?)so she decided to retaliate by posting some of my emails. Check it out.

    The first one just proves exactly what I’ve been saying all along about my reasons for removing her from my blogroll, although she seems to think that it says something completely different. The other two are just friendly emails that, for some reason, she thinks make me look bad.

    I’m not sure what she’s trying to prove, but what she’s actually proven is that she’s petty and irrational.

    Anyway, I don’t mind those emails being there. I think they paint me in quite a favorable light. 😀

    Thought you two might like to know that I left a comment on the post Cyber Stalker. Since she is moderating comments, you may never see it so here it is:

    From an article written by Christopher S. Rugaber, Associated Press journalist, and published in yesterday’s Twin Cities Star Tribune newspaper, “A sign that jobs likely will remain scarce through next year emerged Thursday in a report showing a record number of Americans receiving unemployment aid.

    “And plant shutdowns by Chrysler LLC and General Motors Corp. could further harm the economy in coming months. Economists are just starting to assess the full impact of the auto industry’s woes, which affect thousands of suppliers and dealers.

    “The number of people who are continuing to receive jobless benefits rose to nearly 6.7 million from about 6.6 million, the Labor Department said. That’s the highest total on records dating to 1967 and the 16th straight weekly record…”

    Lottie has been diligently looking for a new job since losing her job in Texas the end of January. Every week, she makes new applications for anything that may be remotely suitable for her. No offers have come her way yet. (See above unemployment rate.) She is in an incredibly scary and stressful situation, relying heavily on her own income to support herself and her young son.

    The last thing that any involuntarily unemployed person needs in this depressing economic time is the sarcastic advice to “get a job.”

    Srsly.

    Bonnie, thanks for being so caring and supportive. It means a lot to me. ((hugs))

    She’s deleted everything on the subject. I’ve removed the posts from my blog too, since they don’t really make sense anymore without the references. Besides, now there’s more room on my front page for sugary sweet posts to my wonderful husband, son and sister.
    😀
