Oh, shoot, I think I just outed myself

Is that inherently a bad thing? Not necessarily. I’ve just, well, sort of come to rely on this space as my own private Idaho, as it were.

Oh, well. Moving along, eh?

Happy Friday, kids! I know, I know, I’m off to bed now. Sober…per usual. (knock, knock)

    I’m puzzled. What happened here? Someone let you know they know who YOU are? Or what? I am a little paranoid about that factor so I hope whatever happened here you’re ok with it and won’t disappear?

      No biggie. I’m not stressing…and, I’m definitely not disappearing! Hope all is going strong for you because, as you and Belle know already, you/we ROCK! 🙂

        Oh GOOD. What the hell happened though? Or maybe you don’t want to elaborate due to further fear of outage? Anyway, good, glad it’s no biggie. I do really worry about this because I’ve been so open here.

        Me, too, but I just decided, Whatever. If people can’t deal with it, then so be it. I went into this pretty firm in my choice to be almost brutally honest (though, I’ve gone back and deleted most references to location!)–if I’m not honest, my words won’t resonate with others. I don’t want a watered down version from another writer, why would others? So, that’s why I’m so honest, but… BUT! Nearly feeling outed (I mean, if someone knows me, and knows they’re looking for this blog, they’ll find me), though, freaked me out mainly because I suddenly realized that I might be being watched. I want this space to be liberating, not another “room” where I have to hide or parse my words!

        Yeah, I totally get this. Currently I doubt anyone would be looking for me but if someone who knew me stumbled upon it – or were someone to realise I had a blog and go looking – it wouldn’t be that hard to work out. Or maybe so far it would but not if I keep being completely honest. And, like you, I don’t want to obfuscate here or what’s the point, but then some of the painful honesty… well, I’m happy to reveal it to you guys but cringe to think of it being uncovered inadvertently. I try to avoid references that are too specific but…

        Ah, screw it. The benefit to us of that honesty and sharing has got to be way greater than any embarrassment or regret were the worst to happen. (Metaphorically knocks wood.)

    i like the idea of your own private idaho (i love that movie, btw). glad whatever happened was just a blip… we do rock. thankfully. makes the rest so much easier when we’re so freaking awesome. xoxo

      Y’know, I’ve never watched it! Next up on my Netflix queue, methinks. We ARE awesome, I have to keep reminding msyelf. 😉
