your secret identities.

11 Aug

you know, blogging is kinda weird.

basically being a blogger means you push your heart and soul out into a public forum, only to be found, analyzed and probably severely mocked by your worst enemies. ok, and maybe a few others too.

(um, so more importantly, in my version of these events my enemies are smoking menthol cigarettes out of those cruella de ville cigarette holder thingys, drinking amaretto sours and wearing fur hats. what? i’m pretty sure this is the truth.)

i am perpetually curious, so i’m always wondering who is actually reading this crazy never-ending teenage telephone conversation. but because i can never truly know, i often just tell myself that other than maximus and the diabolical dog (he can totally read), not a lot of other people really care about these goings-on.

but it seems i was a scooch wrong. i mean, lord knows i’m no oprah, but it’s been nice to learn as of late that i do have a pack of friends along for this ride. having you reveal yourselves, kind readers, has been a treat.

but more than just your identities, it’s a pleasure to know that despite my ridiculous stories, endless swear words and habit of accusing 1.2 billion people of asshole-dom, you keep coming back for more.

(by the way – totally ask yourself what this says about you. god, you’re so weird.)

i’m officially 120 days in now, and while it may not seem like it, this post is all just to say thanks. thanks to those of you who i now know are with me, and thanks to those of you who have yet to show yourselves.

in closing, because they inspired this post by revealing their kind readership, and because i did spend their june wedding day mostly moping for lack of not-being-there-ness, i should say congrats to the fav family brother and sister-in-law. you are loved.

happy to be able to share this with you - what a beautiful couple!

    maximus – no. d-dog – no. faithful follower. yes. try counting days backwards till you return instead of the other way (it’s new math and all).

    • heyitsmeal August 11, 2011 at 10:21 am #

      actually, don’t cut maximus out of the race just yet. while she never comments, she reads religiously. she’s even taken to sending me daily emails – i know – who knew?! i’m telling you, it’s the quiet ones we have to watch out for.

        Ah, you meant faithful followers/readers that DON’T post. Got it now – I was thinking you meant that only ones that DO follow and I was taking exception to your exception!

      • heyitsmeal August 12, 2011 at 4:38 pm #

        it’s all good!!!! gawd, i know there are so many sneaky beavers out there who read but never comment and the curious side of me wants to know who they all are! :)

    Hey Alison, I read you too, in my important role as supporter of Maximus while she endures the year long absence of her daughter. – Kathleen
