Hi, my name is Abbygail and I’m a MyNews24 addict…
This might sound a bit corny, but I have really come to enjoy my MyNews24 reads! Shamefully, I visit the site every single day (and I am supposed to be studying, since I am on STUDY leave!)
I have come across the funniest articles, helpful hints and thought provoking issues that keep my mind occupied!
Sometimes the best part to an article can be the comments. Some of them keep me laughing so long, it begins to hurt. Yes, we all have pseudonyms and avatars, and I suppose you can claim to be a whole other person than you really are (like me – I am actually a 68 year old, Christian woman with 15 children and 25 grandchildren) but I really don’t care. I enjoy my “digital friends” irrespective of their true identity.
Watching an article turn into a mud slinging contest in the comments can be more entertaining than your daily dose of Days of Our Lives (no wait, Days of our lives entertaining – What have I been smoking?!). Insults are thrown like panties at Elvis back in the day. The wicked sense of humour some of the people have, leaves me in awe (really, you can quit your day job and become a comedian).
If it weren’t for some of my views (Atheistic, wine drinking, not so opposed to dagga¸ serial dating singleton) clashing with some of the “moral standards” of the school I work for, I would not use a pseudonym.
My circle of friends keeps me occupied, but some of the folks here on News24 share my sarcastic sense of humour. Some comments can brighten your day, and others can make your ears steam like Yosemite Sam. Either way, it’s enticing, interesting and educational!
So to all the writers, commentators and viewers, thank you! You guys are part of the steaming cesspool that is my life!
