Till the blog arrived. Started writing posts on my blog almost two years back, detailing my frequent rants, occasional exploits, and the rare men. Although it was on public domain, I always imagined that it'd be safe from prying eyes - especially from mere acquiantances that I've met in real life. Just a little hideaway for my deepest thoughts. Obviously sheer dimwitted naivete forms a part of my internet psyche since it never occurred to me that I'd gain some little notoriety from this blog :) With the blog, the original six degrees of separation seems to have shrunk into a mere two or three. People that I work with have found it child's play to recognize others - and most horrifyingly, even themselves in the veiled descriptions that I mention every once in a while.
Obviously not as vague as I once imagined.
Really I'm not babbling incoherently, actually leading somewhere with this... :) Never really expect people I know to read it since it's just a minute insignificant thread in the internet quilt, so small that it's always a surprise to have someone stumble on it. Although it doesn't come as much a surprise as it did when it first happened months back, I still managed an astonished gasp when an old friend from school rang me up. Lavish Louis did take his time to get to the point however.
Louis : Uhh. Ahhh.
Paul : Yeah?
Louis : I have something to tell you.
Paul : You're married with ten kids and your girlfriend doesn't know.
Louis : Not about me. I found out something about you.
Paul : I'm married with tens kids and my boyfriend doesn't know?
Louis : I read your blog.
Seriously, each time someone tells me ( with much trepidation, mind you ), they obviously expect me to keel over dead from the heart-stopping shock. Or else to immediately decapitate them with a blunt katana to keep the secret hidden. Well, maybe the first outing by Shameless Shalom did give rise to some mild palpitations, some degree of hypotension and a sinking feeling but I've grown steadily acclimatized to all that by now.
Maybe if I hide, they won't see me!
Still, it literally amazes me that this little blog has grown... quite oddly notorious in spite of my faultless angelic behaviour. Really! Haven't even propositioned a handsome stranger in months - since I doubt Charming Calvin would find it amusing!
Still, the odds are amazing how anyone I know can possibly stumble across this... Maybe I should buy that gay Da Ma Cai lottery that Will mentioned.
