Madame Arcati: A year old today

Today is Madame Arcati's official birthday, I am a year old - like the modern US, I was born on the 4th of July. I am sure you will all rush to congratulate me on my self-discipline and rigour - don't you think the world of blogging is better for my presence?

My thanks I extend to a cast of characters I could not have invented starting with Kevin Spacey, his brother Randy, his ravishing ex-wife Stephanie Mastini (a gifted artist) and her peculiar sister Francine and boyfriend Thom. Frenemies such as the acclaimed novelist Susan Hill, the delightful and learned Duncan Fallowell, Duralex, Lorenzo, the late Dinu, Lavinia, Daughter-of-a-bitch and the subtle Ms Baroque have maintained a running narrative that continues to fascinate as many of them try in vain to get the better of me. I sometimes think that Arcati is a blog-o-soap.

Arcati has brought to your attention a number of stories that would not have seen the light of day if left to the dead tree media - such as the Independent's diamond supplement, Stefano Hatfield's infidelity with Ken Livingstone's PR and the baffling complexities behind the Jon Snow/Precious Williams saga (ongoing).

As it says at the top, I write about whatever I like in the way I like. No editor in the free world ever granted me that freedom.

Never forget that the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

Yeah, yeah... Happy delusional birthday, my little glove puppets!

I regard Arcati as the Abomination of the blogosphere, a disgusting and obscene site that entrances otherwise intelligent and talented people. As for this "Arcati" person, there is no question in my mind that this chimera is a sick and deluded person. I have never read such obscene things as on this site - may your conscience catch up with you in the not too distant future. I'm sure you will censor this, you vile creature.

Congratulations Dahlink Very very happy birthday.

It's not true that you write about whatever you please though, as Jon Snow's recent success in censoring your blog proves.

Oh,No! Does this mean we will be exposed to further episodes of the dysfunctional Fowler-Mastini families?

Ms Baroque said...

Happy birthday dear Mme A! I only wish I had a subtle titbit for you...

When precisely did you tell us that Keyser Soze was here? I do not recall.

Liz said...

Happy b/day MA. Does this mean fireworks?

Neither do I, but I remember I did quite a long time ago...
Wait, I'm asking Gurgle... Here it is:

Is there anything wrong with it?

Actually Arcati (Miss Marple, more like) didn't just bring the Snow/Williams saga to our attention, she also - albeit unwittingly, it seems - got to the bottom of the story, a feat no other journalist seems to have managed. Arcati printed a so-called "true account", from somebody calling themselves Ross and, oddly, Ross's "true account" was actually, erm, true.

Arcati said...

Ross' account is merely suppressed for now. Arcati awaits patiently for more ....

Speaking of Jon Snow - and Madame of course has been speaking of Jon Snow for several weeks now.... none of this surprises me. I'm not entirely sure why so many (mainly Ch4 New fans) love him. Snow is one of the most pompous people working in journalism today.

His so-called leftie views probably obscure the fact that he has a humungous ego and considers himself a legend in his own lifetime. He considers Williams and all the others like her to be disposable. The way Williams has been publicly lambasted is a strong warning to all the others to never ever try to kiss and tell on Snow.

Some of the comments he made surrounding his ludicrous outburst about "poppy fascism" give you an idea of how inflated his ego is, what a huge sense of self-importance he has. He claimed various charities were "begging" him to wear their symbols (Aids ribbons and so on). And so on.

His foolish threats to sue Madame Arcati also show just what an arse he is. If only Arcati realised that Snow will never sue you. There are reasons why he cannot. The man is getting away with way too much.

I bet he'll make the next young black woman he screws sign an agreement not to speak to the papers.

Oh I have much I could tell you about Snow but I can't, because you'd be afraid of him threatening to sue again and then my post would mysteriously disappear.

Stop letting him kick you around; it's what he has been doing to people for years!
