"Find out what happens when people stop being polite, and start getting real."

I just met one of my lurkers. (Hi Professor K!) She's someone I don't know in "real life" who's read my blog through someone I do know, Michael J. Mike and I ran into each other on the street and he introduced us. This commenced a very strange and coded conversation that I'm sure confused the beejezus out of the fourth person in the group who had no idea what the heck was going on.

There's nothing like a stranger, in person, giving you kudos for posting your before photos on the internet to make you realize, "Oh crap, there are people I don't even know (yet) who have seen me practically naked* and, as if that weren't enough, have formed an opinion of me solely from my rantings and ravings on this here blog."

I suppose, however, there are worse things a person could use to form opinions of me. At least here, I have some control over what is out there. In fact, in "real life" I often sound more idiotic and inarticulate. I may, of course, sound like just as much a babbling fool here and I just don't know it. Such is life.

* Not to mention the group of students who saw me actually naked when I posed for the art class a few years ago.
