Dear Internet, You Aren't That Bad...

PaintingChef is one of the most beautifullest people out there. Yes, I doubled up on my superlatives. That is simply a demonstration of just how much I mean it. Truly. Check her out below, where you'll find her guest posting for my sorry vacationing ass (really, I'm not sorry about that). And then, head over to her blog where you are sure to laugh your ass off, and maybe cry a little sometimes, too.

*************************************************************

Let’s talk about meeting random people on the internet, shall we?

I mean sure, you’ve got your standard sick fucks and your children stalking freaks, but every now and then you find something like a hidden gem.

Everyone has their own drama that they deal with. We all have pasts and hidden demons and basically shit that has fucked us up, maybe permanently, maybe not, whatever. And we all think that OUR shit is special and different and that nobody has ever been there and oh my GOD how am I ever going to make it one more day because I am so alone.

And then you find some totally random person who has not only been through the same thing but they had balls and dealt with it head on and suddenly your world got a little easier to be in. Then you find yourself hoping that they aren’t going to read your email and be all “Man…what a psycho freak. This bitch is emailing me; I KNEW that blogging would be bad because how can something with such a weird ass name be good?” But they don’t. They email you back. And they say… “Hey. Nice to meet you. If you lived closer we would totally hang out.”

Finding that internet friend fucking kicks ass.

Plus, without the Internet, where would we get all our free porn? Err, I mean, yeah, it's a great way to meet new, interesting, intelligent people.

PC, you are so right. Even before blogging, I found a bunch of fabulous friends via the Internet, even though I had previously sworn that sort of stuff was for losers. Not so.

You are absolutely right!

You're so right, particularly with blogging. When we publish our posts, we are revealing ourselves in tiny pieces at a time, and no matter what our intentions are, we all really want to be read and appreciated. Finding someone who "gets us" or even just finds us amusing is a treasure. To find a friend among the millions and millions of people out there, online, is un-fucking-believable!

So, so true! I found this fabulous crafty painter chick who would be so much fun to have an alcohol-filled girls night out with. :) Great post!

It is VERY good to find women who have a sense of humor, strength and a little evil in them, all just like me. I am no longer strange in my own mind, and I am looking VERY forward to the day we all can sit down and have a drink.

Translation: We all need to get together and get trashed and rag on the men in our lives. And all the ugly stupid women. And pretty much everyone else too!

The best part for me is to observe the whole spray of humanity and be able to think, "Maybe I'm not such a weirdo after all".
