So Much, And Yet Nothing

There’s so much I want to ask you, Internet Pals, but absolutely nothing I can write here. Why? It would definitely break the rules. But, I just have to say, I’ve never wanted to break the rules more than I do right now. Pretty much everything going on in my life at the moment would require me to break those rules (no embarrassing family stories, nothing that would get me fired, etc), and well, I don’t want to make anything worse than it already is.\
Things aren’t bad. In a lot of ways, things are very very good. Things are just complicated. The more complicated things get, the more I want to write about them, which would just further complicate them.\
I can tell you that I’m going to Dublin in the very near future, Boston after that (to hang out with my fellow standards nerds at the W3C), and then to Austin for Geek Summer Camp (you know, SXSW. Frequent flier miles are mine, all mine, baby.\
And maybe while I’m in dark, cold and super-friendly Dublin, I’ll tell you a little about all the fun stuff happening at Church, because I know you’re dying to know. You all are, I just know it.

  1. Kev, I know what you mean. Blogs, are inadequate confidants, therapists, or even diaries. But that can be a good thing, if it leads to a way to consider the issue sans details on the blog. Which might give a better perspective, though it fails to satisfy the need to just blurt.
    I’m even wary of discussing my mood or extra-curricular activities for fear of work-related analysis. This leads to the need for a dark blog.
    Have fun in Dublin. It’s great there.

  2. Huh, you guys think your blogs get tight scrutiny? With the best and most loving intentions in the world, my mother-in-law has started reading mine…

  3. Let’s see… my parents read my blog, along with my in-laws, my wife, and all three siblings. Those three siblings also have blogs (however infrequently they may be updated). I know of several extended family members who read not only mine, but their blogs. I know of a dozen or so co-workers who read my blog. I’m not being paranoid, just careful.

  4. None, of my family has access to my blog. I added a blog to the family website, but nothing more. I still have to give some thought to what I want to say. I’m still nervous about my thoughts out there for the world. But you know, I still have my old trusty notebook. You know, pen and paper. Let’s you get it all out but still have some privacy!

  5. Well, you can always talk to me if you want. Send me an email or just call. And by the way, I’m pretty sure that comment about infrequently updated blogs was about me, wasn’t it? But that’s okay. I’m not offended. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go write in my blog.

  6. Rules are made to be broken. I don’t think it’s healthy to keep your thoughts all to your self (some of them, yes). Especially with what’s going on at work… how could you not seek the wisdom and wackiness of your Internet Pals?
