Do you ever read blogs from people you don't know, but the more you read them, the more convinced you become that you are destined to be buddies with the author? Now, see, for the normal part of the population, I would guess most of you would say, "why no! It never even occurs to me! I just like reading it because (insert sane rationale for reading details about stranger's lives they post on-line - here)."
But this is where the crazy stalker in me takes over and thinks everything I read, from this one blog in particular, is exactly like ME!! We are kindred spirits!!!! She writes like I would if I actually blogged!! So to list the reasons why I think we were separated at birth: she is the same age as me (not the same birthday per se, but she is in her early 30's - so that means a TON, right?!), has 4 kids (ok, we are no longer twinsies in that department, but for a while we were), home schools (ok, not that one anymore either), home birthed her kids, (I just had one at home, but still - same, right?), she struggles keeping her house in order AND she is Mormon! Can you say same/same?!
So I know that it's crazy, and I know that we are not the same so much after all, but I still feel like we would seriously be friends if we happened to live in the same country/state/ward. And I have been tempted to write her a letter telling her as much. (But then, I also think that Sarah Palin and I, while we vastly differ on political ideas, would also be besties after watching her TLC show. Well, maybe not besties; she did actually shoot live animals, but for the sake of our friendship, I would be willing to overlook it because she is so much dang fun... ) But then I realized that put in the same level as that crazy guy in the cheesy 90's movie"The Bodyguard". But it is So. Hard. To. Resist.
So today, instead of telling her why I think we should be BFF's, I am telling all of you. Why tell one, when instead you can admit to everyone who reads your blog (granted that's probably only three people) that I am absolutely Coo-coo for cocoa puffs Nuts.
So there it is. I am a cyber-stalker.
Do you have a one-sided-cyber-bestie too???
