howdy do, neighbor

My mama reads this blog. I assume you know that. Hell, if you are reading this I can almost assume that you either found me through her blog or are related to me.

Anyway, that's one reason that there are certain things I don't talk about on here. You'll never get the details of my sex life through blogspot.

But, looking at this blank page, I feel like there are certainly more personal things to discuss once in a while. Things that could do with an airing.

So, out of curiosity, who's reading this? Are you one of my mama's fans, do I know you in real life, have we dated? Speak up, please.

I've only seen your mama's blog once. Recently. I don't know how/when I first started reading your blog. I think it was from a link on White Rabbit's blog. But I could be wrong.

downtown guy said...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure wr was our connection. Good thing, too, yours is one blog I read pretty much every week day.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

I'm reading, if you must know. I'm your adopted sister.

And I love you.

downtown guy said...

Love you, too, sis.

Your mom told me to come here to commiserate about the thankless life of public/government employees. In the past few months, I've been called every filthy name you can imagine, and some you can't. I've been threatened with a knife, been called and threatended in the middle of the night, and have been sexually propositioned by individuals I don't even want to think about in the nekkid sense.
So, here I am.

downtown guy said...

Oh, good god. Are you doing field work? The closest I get to the public is answering our main office lines, but I do talk to some out there folks.

I've become a regular reader, though at times like this, I feel like a conspicuous outsider who doesn't really belong here. I believe I found you because you found me -- you commented on my blog once. Hope you don't mind me snooping around.

I'm here, reading.

downtown guy said...

Every now and then I search for Tallahassee-based blogs and add one or two to my reader. It's very cool that you've taken to reading mine as well. Have a good Christmas?

downtown guy said...

RGC: Good to know. How you feeling?

RiotGrrlCynic said...

Right now like I've swallowed some razorblades. Other than that fairly well.
And yourself?

I found you through your mama's blog and keep coming back.

And I don't know that I read any blogs where I learn about the owner's sex life (in any detail anyway). Some things are better saved for the real world.

Ms. Moon said...

Uh. I found your blog through you telling me about it. Now look- if you don't want me to read your blog, just tell me. You know how much I respect the sanctity of my children's privacy.
So if I'm stopping you from writing about things you want to write about, then please- just give me the word. I mean it!
But I am not going to stop visiting I've Had Dreams Like That.
Sorry. Too bad.
Love you!
Yo Mama

downtown guy said...

Steph and Mama both: that's why I have online journals y'all don't read.

Ms. Moon said...

And I am so grateful.

Lily said...

I am here when I get a chance! I love you bro.

downtown guy said...

Hey, Lily, I love you, too!

Magnum said...

I'm the gov't, the well-funded branch. I have a black helicopter but most of my intel comes from monitoring your posts.
I can't tell you who gave you up, but I've been here ever since.

Magnum said...

lurking...

downtown guy said...

That can't be right. I'm from a well funded branch of the govt and was using this blog to monitor traitors like you.

"Who watches the watchmen" indeed.

Magnum said...

quis custodiet indeed...

have a happy new year!

downtown guy said...

You, too, man! Stay away from the cops!

Steph(anie) said...

Now I'm intrigued...

roserain said...

I came from your mama's blog, (love her!)who I found through flux capacitor! My blog is fiction: mybluegardenia.wordpress.com

downtown guy said...

Steph: oh, it's not that much fun.

roserain: glad to see you here.

Petit fleur said...

Ah, I'm pretty sure we know each other! I'm a fan of the whole fam damily!! heh!
xo pf

downtown guy said...

As I am of yours!

May said...

Um, I'm late to this but you know who I am. I've been a Busy Bacsun.

allthistrouble said...

I read your blog. I found your mom's blog and stalked her blogroll for her children's blogs. I found three of you...

When I switched to Wordpress, it crimped my style. I liked being able to see what was new and work on my blog all from the same place. How does google reader work? Can you comment through it? This sort of applies to your most recent post. I've fallen off on reading other blogs because it's so hard for me to get a comment to go through using Wordpress.

Help me out, wise man.

downtown guy said...

Hey May!

allthistrouble: Do you have a google or gmail account? Reader is very simple, I find. Just go to google.com and click on "reader" at the top. You just add in your blogs and the newest entries will appear to you in a list or expanded view. Commenting is fairly easy as well. Good luck!

justme said...

When I have time (which is less and less these days) I am here reading. Usually I end up checking in once in awhile and reading everything I have missed in one sitting.

I come via your awesome Mama...your comments on your mama's blog had me thinking you were a pretty cool person, so I wanted to check out your blog.

I don't think we have dated; at least not in THIS life :-)

downtown guy said...

Good to know, and I'm glad you enjoy it.

Mrs. Holly Hall said...

Yeah, I saw so what.

Don't let the fact that your mom reads this stop you.

Cause seriously, this is your blog. She can avert her eyes if needs be.

I mean, this one time, my brother rents a movie to watch. We are all sitting around (us and the parents). He presses play and HOLY SHIT HE RENTED BASIC INSTINCT!

Then my Mom's all like, "MICHAEL!! HOW DARE YOU RENT THIS!!"

And he tells her to hush and turns up the volume.

true story I swear to GOD!!

so. let it out! I dares ya!!

Nulaanne said...

I read your blog and I am don't know who you mamma is. Does that make me strange?

Bethany said...

From yr mama, because any boy named Hank who makes zines has got to be worth checking out.

downtown guy said...

Mrs. Hall, great story.

Nulaanne : and I just started reading yours.

Bethany: thanks!

Jo said...

Just passing through from BOH, you know me :)

Feel free to post about your sex life! Just put up a No Mamas warning first :)

downtown guy said...

If I do, I sure as hell will.

EDP said...

I'm weighing in two months late, but I have always enjoyed your blog. I discovered your mom's later, but her writing is sharp and beautifully honest.

downtown guy said...

Thanks! I miss your blog, since you seem to have pretty much gone to facebook.
