Arcati celebrated by the worldly-wise

The darling Grumpyoldbookman lists Madame Arcati as one of his must-reads in an interview with Joe Blogs. Michael Allen - alias Mr Grumpy - looks quite bohemian and I'm glad to see he's blogging more frequently again, as I predicted.

For reasons that I cannot explain, I have set up a Madame Arcati "conscience blog" at the Telegraph - the rather handsome Shane Richmond writes of the paper's new blog site: "We've even had visits from a couple of blogosphere celebs. Madame Arcati popped in to say hello and Guido Fawkes found time to give himself a small plug and share some news with us." Isn't he a poppet? My enemies will be furious and will scrawl hideous messages on other blogs there denouncing me. But I rise on their spittle.

Yes, Arcati is everywhere, even on MySpace (though the person behind that is not me. I am far more gorgeous. I have placed a hex on him and he will soon develop a distressing eye infection).

I'm not going to congratulate you on your success in your narrow circle of retirees: it's at least the tenth time that we can notice you're doing it yourself quite well.

To be fair, you could also mention that for some reason your blog has been removed from Ms. Susan Hill's favs. But I suspect your sympathetic crystal ball of lying to you sometimes, when the truth is too painful. :-)

What the hell is the interest of it if, as it clearly appears to be, that Telegraph blog is merely a carbon-copy of this one? Ah, if only you were able to cover up your rat face with another virtual fancy mask, and jump to the opposite side of yourself creating a new character, as a genuine writer would do...

Thank you Jasper Bitch, I may yet do that, but Madame Arcati is a very possessive individual and would not take kindly to competition.

Now, run along to the kiddies' bit of the blogosphere. Lots of cool happening things there to occupy that dormant mind of yours.

You see, Anonymous, in my opinion Madame is a vicarious liver and a masochist, as I noticed many sexually frustrated people are, but she's not schizophrenic, or at least not enough to grab all the opportunities that the internet offers to a truly schizophrenic personality. :-)
