Like Moths To My Fame

I am well known but the terms of my treatment mean I cannot reveal precisely in what way I am famous. Actually, scratch that. The multiplicity of talents that I have, I am a regular polymath, means I cannot identify precisely the one reason I am famous. What this does mean is that whenever I attend a drinks party for example, I find it exhausting. I attended one last night at the house of a close personal friend. He has a splendid house and it is near, but not equal to the value of my own. Anyway, whenever I arrive I am besieged by those seeking my attention. I find the first person I talk to wants to hear all about my achievements but I am conscious that I can see someone else glancing in my direction and no doubt wanting to listen to me. This makes for a dilemma. The person I am regaling is clearly entranced by my monologue but I see others want the benefit of my presence and I have to provide it to them. Sometimes, they make it easier and a small crowd will assemble to ooh and aah at my diatribe, but usually I have to move from person to person round the room. I often think I ought to carry a written bulletin of what I have been doing and distribute it. At least that way I can get around to everybody. I would hate to think that I would ever leave someone out. My girlfriend usually complains that I am talking to all the other women and not her, but she does not understand. She does not get the same attention that I do. That is hardly my fault is it? She even complained when she found me in the bedroom with a younger lady. We were only talking but along she comes checking up on me. She can be controlling at times and I have to put her in her place. I did when we got home, there’s no need for a dressing down in public. Still all was not lost by her interruption. I have the young lady’s telephone number and I have managed to find her on Facebook so you will have to excuse me as I have a fluttering moth that needs to be shown the light.

    Your “close personal friend”, are they on your radar all the time for fuel or just a backup for when you need the extra support/lieutenant etc?

      As a NISS they are not on the radar all the time.

    This actually made me laugh lol

    1. iquanyin says:

      me too. “the terms of my treatment…” sure, I’ve heard of that treatment, where you have to surround yourself in mystery to whittle your unchangeable ego down to acceptable size. πŸ˜‚ but the writing is insightful.

  3. Catherine Parr R says:

    How has the journey of writing about narcissism on narcsite coupled with commenter interactions affected/changed your personality and character, from this first article in August 2015 to now?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      It has increased my understanding and awareness.

    2. iquanyin says:

      given that his premise is that the right half of the spectrum doesn’t change….

  4. Gary Spotts says:

    The word “diatribe” has a meaning inconsistent with the overall tone of story you’re telling in this entry. Does that bother you?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      Not at all. I may well be engaging in a diatribe against someone or something which is causing the listeners to ooh and ahh at what I am saying. The diatribe will be levelled against something external to those in the room and thus is consistent with the overall tone of the story. I understand why you wrote as you did and I trust that clarifies it for you.

    Hi HG! I thought I’d start at the beginning of your writing. Your Blog has come a long way! And your writing has evolved so eloquently. I see your 2 year anniversary is approaching. Planning anything special? Like a live youtube session???? No worries…. I’ll get Sitting Target tomorrow most likely. It’s fascinating to me to see the evolution of things. Especially artistic things such as writing and art. It’s similar to playing the compositions of Mozart from his youth til his Requiem. With each piece there is something brighter, something darker, more depth, more insight, more experience. I’m going to enjoy reading through these and getting caught up. I’m not sure if the fish lure was the first to appear? But for such a simple image, it truly captured the post. But these days, the artwork is simply incredible. I don’t know if it’s polite to ask, but how do you obtain those images? Do you create them with models or what? Anyhow, the images that accompany your writing are astounding in capturing your words.

    My how I denigrated this post for you with sheep jokes. Part of your fame, comedian. See now it offers a different side to you, you are welcome πŸ˜€

  9. karaa34 says:

    Silly was not stated in a demeaning manner btw, it was more cute.

    1. karaa34 says:

      My ex N called me silly, I found it sweet and endearing. Based on the times he used it. He never said it in a derogatory manner, or at least I never took it that way. He usually said when he was being silly too, it was playful with him. Anyways too much explanation.

    Doesn’t your ” God ” status make you famous ? Can you give us a hint what else makes you famous….besides being a published author of many books?
    Women do love being put in their place, If so, I choose my bed please.

    1. malignnarc says:

      My prowess in my field and certain sporting achievements when younger. I will add no more than that. Now isn’t it time for bed for you?

      1. karaa34 says:

        No, it isn’t time yet for my place to be. So, football then, I am fully unaware in that area and if I tell you a team I like it may insult you. I know how serious such sport is. So I tread lightly in such arenas 😏

        1. malignnarc says:

          You can name the team though surely you would be a cherries fan?

          1. karaa34 says:

            If by Cherries , do you mean Cheslea 😏

          2. malignnarc says:

            Good lord no ! Go and look it up and come back to me !

          3. karaa34 says:

            I logged myself off on that one…..no, I meant Chelsea…silly.

          4. malignnarc says:

            Er still wrong. Silly.

          5. karaa34 says:

            Ha ha…..I am not a football fan, sorry. I don’t mind watching it and my daughter is on a school football team.

          6. malignnarc says:

            The Cherries are Bournemouth AFC.

          7. karaa34 says:

            I know, I still prefer Chelsea πŸ˜€

          8. malignnarc says:

            And I thought you had some class !

          9. karaa34 says:

            Ha ha, I had to pick a team, that is only one I would watch, beside Arsenal. Middlesbrough wa so. My no list as ex was from there.

          10. malignnarc says:

            Your ex was a smogmonster?

          11. karaa34 says:

            The first N, the second is from Cambridge, he is the good one so to speake 😏 Middlesbrough is horrid.

          12. malignnarc says:

            Ah but it is near the beautiful North York moors with Helmsley, Roseberry Topping and Guisborough Hall. I am sure the residents of Middlesbrough will be please to see you visit. Now Stockton, that is a hell hole.

          13. karaa34 says:

            I love the Yorkshire moors, Whitby an Guisborough and I especially fond of Ilkley moors though….it is good for the romantic soul.

          14. malignnarc says:

            You have to take your hat though on Ilkley Moor.

          15. karaa34 says:

            Super blustery every darn time….I like the sheep and they like me, well a few of them do.

          16. malignnarc says:

            That’s baaarmy.

          17. karaa34 says:

            Stop that ewe

          18. malignnarc says:

            No need to lambast me.

          19. karaa34 says:

            I hope you don’t fleece me at some point 😏

          20. malignnarc says:

            That can happen when I ram-p up the charm.

          21. karaa34 says:

            Am I one of the herd

          22. malignnarc says:

            Yes you are a wooling member.

            That was impressive, I do enjoy such jokes

          29. malignnarc says:

            Humour is important.

          30. karaa34 says:

            Humor is vital, I agree

          31. karaa34 says:

            This made me laugh

          32. malignnarc says:

            I am on fire.

          33. karaa34 says:

            I feel worthless now

          34. malignnarc says:

            Deal with it.

          35. karaa34 says:

            Sorry, I forgot who I was writing to…no sympathy here.

          36. karaa34 says:

            Like a Branding iron, hot

          39. malignnarc says:

            It is by virtue of shear dedication you are.

          40. karaa34 says:

            Ha ha ha…you are still going, such endurance….

          41. malignnarc says:

            Not the first time that has been said.

          42. karaa34 says:

            Lol……I rather always enjoyed the said the actress to the Bishop jokes….

          43. malignnarc says:

            I thought you were referring to my long distance running.

          44. karaa34 says:

            I was referring to the steady barrage of sheep jokes, that made me laugh, I have a corny sense of humour, I laugh at things most don’t.

          45. karaa34 says:

            You can do the big finish 😊

      2. MLA - Clarece says:

        You travel frequently for football. Is that purely recreational? Or are you involved with security or something now related to sports? I remember you also saying one of your many talents is being a very accurate marksman?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          Sometimes recreational, sometimes linked to work.

          1. MLA - Clarece says:

            Thank you! Very interesting…

        2. Tamara says:

          Don’t you know, Clarece? After all, you claim to be such looooong time friends with him.

    2. Catherine Parr R says:

      Ha ha. I enjoyed this banter between Karaa34 & Malignnarc.

      Very good!

      1. Yolo says:

        Me too. Gosh he’s grown in numbers and as an individual that we can take as serious. The banter lessen his creditable especially considering the sources. He’s earned the respect and is acknowledge as one of the viable options resources in NA victim recovery.

        I hope he will consider a 501 3c at some point in his next endeavors. Add a non profit arm. This will allow him to reach more people and potentially obtain funding
