Met 1998

I say I've never met Karawynn, Jamie, Carl and Justin. What the fuck does that mean?

I sit next to someone on the bus, I shake hands with a co-worker's client who I'll never see again, I chat with the bank teller and somehow these are people I've met?

Karawynn tells me about her darkest most depressing moments and sings the little song about her vibrator, Jamie lets me see out his window through his eyes and carefully shows me how to make something special that he made just to please himself, Carl makes me laugh and sigh and whispers sexy somethings in my ear, Justin shows off his pretty garters and gives me his thoughts on everything, especially the stuff that's usually kept private, and somehow these are people I've never met?

My body doesn't encompass me.
I don't have to breathe the same air to be in the same place as you.

Have we met?

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
