…you know what I love about BLOGS? They’re almost as good as looking into the picture windows of houses as I drive by late at night. I always wonder what is going on inside…what are people doing…what kind of furnishings do they have…what are they having for dinner…that sort of thing. Sort of wierd, I know. But it’s not like voyeurism or anything. I’m interested in how people live.
BLOGS let you see inside the windows of people’s houses..and into their souls. Some BLOGS are political (I skip those), some are homey, some are journals. When I’m reading through them I think…wow…these people are interesting…or damn..these people really need a hobby.
When I was young, I had this friend who fascinated me. Everything about her was interesting. How she kept her room. The cool stuff she always had. The good grades she always received. I used to snoop in her room. She’d run to the bathroom, and I’d be in her desk drawer. Never to steal or anything. Just to look. She was always pretty organized and always had the newest, coolest things. Eventually, I’d try to emulate her. If she had something new…I’d get one too…although, it was usually a cheap knock-off of some sort. In sixth grade I earned the only “A” in science that I’ve ever received because I was emulating her. We did our homework together…and I copied her studying style…worked at styling my handwriting so that it looked like hers.
These days I stay out of desk drawers and am just too tired to look into the windows of houses as I drive on by…but I still wonder what’s inside.
