Love is never having to say "Get that video equipment outta my yard!"

Soupie requested that I revisit my feelings on blog crushes.

Sure, sometimes I read someone's blog and I think, "Huh, I bet they're hot." No real rhyme or reason to it, but I think it's safe to say that in every case it's a blog I find really funny. That being said, do I have a "crush?" Um, not really. A crush to me *necessarily* entails personal interaction, because I don't get crushes on people who I am not (a) physically attracted to, and (b) I am not physically attracted to people I don't know and like and think are good people, kinda sorta. "Good" is pretty subjective, but I can safely say that it is indefinable. People I have crushes on make me laugh and are nice to me. Also, sometimes they're not nice to me...sometimes that even enhances the crush. Sick, I know.

Anyway, the point of all of this rambling is that I just don't think I'm capable of developing something as complex as a crush from reading things that people write on their blogs, things that may or may not be true, may or may not be representative of who they really are, and even worse in some cases, may actually be both true and representative of who they are. That being said, there are definitely bloggers I have gotten to know "behind the scenes" that I can say I have a bit of a crush on. But only on their minds of course, because I'm respectful like that. Anything more than that seems, well, stalker-ish, or something.
