So after some banter with one of my favorite people in all the world, I’ve been thinking about who I am. Yes, I do occassionally think about things other than new shoes, new purses and new technology. Tee hee. Occasionally.
Seriously though – since the inception of AOL chat rooms back in the day, the interweb has allowed Creepy McCreepsters from across the globe to be whomever they want to be whilst they’re logged on to the alternate reality that is the internet.
You can say what you want to say. Be who you want to be.
You create that persona, or that avatar of yourself that isn’t really you…. but more your target self. (This is like the weight on my license. It’s not really my current weight, per se… it’s my target weight.)
That said, after some thoughtful review I can safely say that this here blog… is me.
This is exactly who I am.
Quirks and random. Dull sometimes, informative at other times. If I were being honest, I’d tell you that sometimes I re-read my posts and laugh out loud. Because more often times than not I think I’m funny. (Ask C. I’m not lying here.)
The only thing that this blog is not; it’s not overwhelmingly controversial. Why? This is not because I don’t have strong opinions. On the contrary, it’s because this blog, this here TWO PRETZELS is for all intents ad purposes, a SAFE and happy and easy place.
Call me a wuss…
I’m not afraid of ruffling feathers, however for the most part – I prefer for feathers to stay where they belong: on birds.
How about you? Do your online “persona” and your real life, to borrow a favorite word from our forefathers, “jive”?
