Do you have those bloggers you sort of stalk? Like the big ones, or the cool ones that you are just too scared to actually comment on? I totally do. For a while I would leave comments on The Bloggess. Before I knew who the Bloggess was. Then I felt like a fan showing up at her table at a fancy restaurant and bugging her for an autograph. I was all freaked out. Like, "Crap, I just drew attention to my stupid self and now she's gonna look my way!" And she did, I even got a comment or two from her.
And then there are the others like Jennifer at Playgroups are No Place For Children who is a biggie, but I had no idea either and we were neighbors, so I wasn't so scared to comment. But still in awe of her super writing and now photography skills.
So now I have a new one. One I am sure is WAY too cool to ever come see my blog, so I feel safe that I can write whatever I want and not get a restraining order put on me... hopefully. She's just funny, and raw, and totally the opposite of me. Maybe that's the appeal. I mean, she can make Cancer sound funny. And I am pretty sure she's mentally unstable, but in a good way. I have been reading her for a while, and even added her to my sidebar, but have yet to leave a comment. No need drawing attention to myself. But today, I did it. Maybe it was the Bailey's in my coffee, or the high from throwing a fabulous dinner party last night that I felt cool enough to leave her a comment. But I did. Oh crap, what if she sees the comment, decides to find out who I am and links back to this post where she sees me stalking, and get's that restraining order? Great! Now I'm just that creapy chick who wants to hang with the cool kids.
