Just thinking out loud dear blog. Don't mind me.

Of course I don't want to prematurely celebrate what appears to be some astounding poetic justice, too soon. Also it's not cause for celebration as much as just being given some long overdue and deserved succor that bad deeds gets punished eventually and that we should sit tight rather than just collapse all together. Boags, Notaro's mothers freak accident. Harris Wittels and what happened to him... The odds of any of that happening feel much more like karma than coincidence, but hey those are just feelings. Karma is a complicated and very faulty concept so...

Last time with the Tig Notaro got cancer cause it says in the bible that those who bear false are as guilty as murderers... And that sounds right...Who can forget how that bit of seeming cosmic justice got sabotaged by an impressively cynical cancer scam just a few months later. Impressive in that leaves you aghast AF way.

But boy do I want to send a well written neener neener to the instigator of the whole tragedy. And over time, we have come to see that Stef Willen was that person. She poisoned and poisoned Notaro with lies and invented threats and abuses, so Notaro would get sufficiently protective of her and come back into her life, and the rest all sprung from that. Otherwise she would have stopped it all after the night of April 7th 2008. Just said to Gregozek, " No she never attacked us that night, not physically or verbally. I don't know why Tig is saying these things."  That would have exonerated her to a large degree. We'd know it was just Notaro's insane case of spite that was behind it. Instead Willen kept it up, and kept upping the ante as her lies got worse and worse, and more and more cruel and destructive.

It took  us a long time to not see that, and I have plenty of theories why we chose to not see how she was was the guiltiest one of all. Basically, we trusted her to a degree, and to believe that we let someone into your hearts and even home, and they could be so scary bad... That would mean our judgement wasn't strong enough to protect us . We'd never come to like or trust the others, and so we had to give her much more a pass than deserved, despite overwhelming evidence of her real role from the start(the start being May 6th 2008 when she talked to John Gregozek)
