Thanks, baby.

More and more I think that blogging acts like a surrogate boyfriend. If I had a real boyfriend, he would have to listen to all the themes that run through my mind. Los Osos would be pillow talk for two years. If I could even get my best friend to stop thinking that grad school was so all-fired important, he could listen to Los Osos for hours. (He does anyway. But he would have to listen to more if he weren't in grad school.) Without those outlets, I turn to the internets instead. Thank you, surrogate boyfriend.



P.S. I'll dump you in a flash when a real boy who puts out comes along.

I think we should just be friends.

No, No, No. Don't try to stop me. I've thought this through. Sure, we are compatible. Sure, you like interesting things. But...the distance, combined with the fact that we just dont know each other...well, I feel it is hurting our romantic relationship. There are some days that I think we wouldnt even recognize each other. Such a shame. But, we can still be friends, right?

Why isn't us internets enough? We provide intellectual stimulation, endless reading material, laughs galore. You humans normally think you're so advanced and above nature, you claim not to be survival of the fittest or the rules of the jungle, but when it comes to hormones and evolutionary biology you're happy to admit you are ruled by finding "the one"? Why can't a life of intellectual achievment and righting wrongs and entertaining readers be enough?!? Ok ok, I'm sorry, I'm the internets, I have rants sometimes (ok most of the time) -- can you blame me I'm a series of tubes, some of which are flooded with myspace teenagers. <sniff> What if in web 3.0 I add a .snuggle domain?

Don't those wooden boys give you splinters?

Hey, Megan:

What do you think this article about young girls and Rand? Scary, isn't it? Cheers, -K.

I've been boyfriend without benefits to so many women that this post doesn't surprise me at all.

Does this mean that we cannot celebrate Anti-Valentines Day?

On that note, Happy Valentine's Day, Megan. I hope that you're being wooed by some incredibly athletic nerd. -K.

I'm sure there's an obvious sociobiological point that females use the Internet for affection while men use it for sex, but I'm not going to be the one who points it out. :-D
