Our secret life

This stupid blog has become such a big part of our lives that it felt weird last night not to talk about it with our Beveridge Pub friends. Michelle doesn't want people at work reading it, and I get that -- sometimes we say something that wouldn't go over well in the workplace, and besides our life really isn't the business of people we don't choose to share it with. Gotta be careful with the internets; share something with one person and next thing you know it's all over YouTube and showing up on The View.

Still, it was weird. Sordid tales of gambling with gangbangers, fine. Gin bottles depleting at the same rate as bags of coffee, fine. Godless rants about sainted cancer girls, kinda fine. But no mention of Incremental Updates.

People asked me what I do with all my free time -- "like what did you do today, for example," Kamb asked. Well, really all I did all day was write posts about the completely unimportant minutiae of my day. I mean, a fat-free hot dog was the big deal.

So I just told the truth. "Nothing, really."

funny. I had the urge three or four times to mention it last night, but then I thought, hey, I forgot to add another phrase to Mark's hated phrases list: "It's a slippery slope."

Mark said...

Slippery indeed.

The other thing is, it's not like those layabouts in that newsroom need another distraction. Not much typing going on around there, unless you count eBay searches and Facebook chats.

Heh --- you know of course that it will all come out in the end. Until this little sister-blogging experiment, I had never put my photo on the internets and I was *extremely circumspect* about my private info being out on the web. (Especially keepitonthedownlow.txt) Then I realized that now privacy is an illusion. I would just have to deal with any shit that would come up when someone stumbled onto something I didn't necessarily want to share with them....

Whoa, got to break from this musing because THE UPS MAN JUST CAME AND DROPPED OFF THE NEW MAC! WEEHOO!!!!

Privacy IS an illusion! Big Blogger Monica Guzman just informed me that she's been reading the blog and she loved the post of my Average Day. How'd she find it? We linked to her Big Blog once. Everything is traceable.

Of course she found it. She's 14 years old.
