It’s weird when you talk to family or friends online when you’ve only spoken to them in person before. Or finally talking to someone in person that you’ve only ever talked to online before.
My brothers are on Facebook. One sounds so much like himself even there. The other sounds like a complete stranger. It’s a little surreal. Then I realized that I haven’t spoken to either one — in person or otherwise — in ages. It’s a wonder they don’t both sound odd to me. I’m a little afraid to talk to them like I normally would online. I mean, I’m much the same person in person that I am online but they haven’t encountered either me in ages. And I’m not the little sister they might remember.
My world does not revolve around you. This blog does not revolve around you. I have other friends. Not hundreds of them, granted, but they do exist. And I have shit going on in my life that you are not a part of so please, for the love of god, stop assuming that any post here is about you.
When have I ever been reluctant to come out and tell you point blank what I think or that I’m pissed off? Do you really think I’d post about you in a blog that I know you read? Why would you think I would start doing that now when I’ve never done it before? It’s like gossiping about someone when you know they’re listening — it’s done to hurt the listener. I’m appalled that you think I’m that kind of person.
I was going to ask for the same courtesy, of not posting about me in a blog you know I read. But it’s really not my place to tell you what you should or shouldn’t write about. It’s a free blogosphere. I know you hate passive-aggression from others, though, and you need to know that that is exactly what you’re doing to me when you choose your blog as a way to tell me you’re upset about something that you think has occurred between us.
You know, when you go to TMZ.com, you’re usually looking for meaningless, salacious gossip and video. You don’t expect to find out there that a great comedy legend like George Carlin died late yesterday. Words are failing me right now so here are links to a couple of the articles:
