I'll be watching you....

Can you fall in love with a person through reading their blog?

Maybe the question is not "can you"...but "Is it crazy that..."

I have quite a few blogs that I follow on my Google RSS reader. I check it faithfully every day for updates on all my favorite internetland people. I find myself feeling sad if they have not updated in a while. Melancholy that I can not get my regularly scheduled glimpses into their 'much more interesting than mine' lives.

You get to feel like you know them....like you are right there with them cooking dinner for Marlboro Man and the Punks...or right beside them making cakepops....or simmering frijoles, and painting Vans for the chil'rens.

I love my blogs...and I don't care if Pioneer Woman, Bakerella or Pear Mama don't know I exist! I still love them! Call me crazy if you must.

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
I'll be watching you

Why wouldn't you be able to fall for someone? You're hearing their thoughts and finding how they think about themselves and things. You may not be able to see how the actually act compared to how they write (maybe a different personality). But I agree.

I hate when things aren't updated regularly, and I have nothing in my Google RSS feeder. HINT HINT

I think it's not only possible, but maybe even easier, to fall for people through their writings. When you meet someone in person, there's always something that interferes with getting to know the "true" person: looks, shyness, the chitchat that we're supposed to engage in. When you follow someone's blogs, you're immediately seeing the important stuff: the deeper thoughts, the desires, without the interference of all that surface crap.
