I shouldn't have written this, but will let it stand. I realize I was being way "off the cuff" and honest. It pays to selectively share your feelings sometimes. My attraction to this blog is an addiction, pure and simple. I live vicariously through the words of the author. He lives a life that I mistakenly see as grand or enviable. To not have any responsibility. To have plenty of Internet access that is "free." To live on the fringe of society with a freedom to be contrary, as you have nothing to lose. It speaks poorly of my character I realize. I have a lot of time on my hands and fill it with little obsessions such as these. Hopefully, that will change when I start work. I will be too tired to care what "The Homeless Guy" is up to.
Well, my favorite blog and homeless guy has decided to write only about pitbull attacks lately. It has left a big gaping hole in my blog reading. What would you all feel if I decided to only update my weather blog or only write a blog on the prevalence of drinking and driving in modern society? Yawn! That's how I feel about this. Aggravated. I grow irritable and want to lash out by writing a nasty email or comment hoping to shake him out of his current obsession. I realize why he is doing it -- to be contrary. He wants to be righteous and to prove others wrong. It is maddeningly frustrating for his readership though. Maybe this will break my obsession with his blog and homeless blogs in general. I can only hope as I am helplessly addicted. His crazy self-inflicted life made me smugly feel not so despondent and badly about my own topsy-turvy existence on this planet.
