Feeling voyeuristic

Many of you have been with me from the start of this blog. Many more of you are new to my insanity. Tomorrow the love of my life is coming to visit and I've been feeling mushy today (and have to balance out that last ass HofSnark's post).

A* and I met in a bar through a friend of a friend. The two weeks following is when our love affair started with hours and hours of phone calls and IMs. Here is a nice, neat (and chronological) list of the posts from my and A*'s blogs from thise first two weeks.

Early on I called her Miss Lookatme (Miss L) and she called me Mr. Nice Guy (Mr. NG). We met in a bar on Friday 4/1 (April Fool's Day).

Of course, this was only the beginning but kinda neat to catalog. If you are feeling voyeuristic or romantic, take a peek.


Me (Sun 4/3):So it begins

Me (Thurs 4/7):What a Contrast

Me (Fri 4/8):Miss Lookatme on IM

Me (Sun 4/10):Friday's with Miss L

A*: (Sun 4/10):Mr. Nice Guy

Me (Mon 4/11): What a Prankster

A* (Tues 4/12):Vacillating

Me (Tues 4/12):Pangs of Guilt

A* (Wed 4/13):Package

Me (Wed 4/13):Set till summer

Me (Wed 4/13): Reality

Me (Fri 4/15):Done Good

Me (Fri 4/15):Short Answer

A* (Fri 4/15):Caution

(and, by the way, she did end up changing her mind about Vegas)

Ok, I'm a voyeur. I read them all. Wow! *sniff* What an interesting start to it all!

You know, I really DO think though that the one bonus of a long distance relationship is how much talking you have to do when you are apart. You can really get to know somebody that way. It also forces you to take certain elements about the relationship more slowly. And look, we're getting to see it all unfold on the net! I am a peeping Kira! :)

LOL! me and you-know-who started our blog flirting on april 1 (though him and i are not as far along as you and a*)

i remember reading her blog (before i found yours or you found mine), and her stories about you. i'm so glad she went to vegas (as i'm sure you both are too). you two are the cutest, sweetest couple out there!

*sniff sniff*

thanks guys. We love you too...

*sniff sniff*

That was quite nice. Now I am all warm and fuzzy. You guys are the best. I hope you two have alot of fun.

Hey guys...enjoyed this. I came to the party late. The first time Hof wrote about A, I think I left a comment saying, "Hey..What happened to Miss L??" DUH! I had not been around long enough to have gotten the connection. Anyone who read both blogs surely was in on it much sooner than I.

Appreciate the glimpse into your personal lives, friends!! Carry on!

You all would be shocked how often we talk about all of you in real life. Each of you mean so much to us and provide support like no others. Your advice is candid and honest, your kindness unmatched. All my female readers are smoking hot, all my male readers are hung like porn stars.

At 6:58 AM, Blogger WordWhiz said...

Your male readers only TELL you they are hung like porn stars. Guys have such an ego when it comes to their manhood. Your women readers, however, ARE all very hot. We are so much more honest than you guys!

WW! haha! It reminds me of one day when I was trying to collect papers for a class (I'm an English prof at a college), and this one male student was irked because I told him that his paper didn't meet the length requirement. He kept insisting that it did. He got a little rude about it, so I snapped, isn't that just like a man, trying to tell me that it's bigger than it is!

He shut up. The rest of the class, however, laughed.

That was sweet. Thanks for the read!

I remember reading some of A*'s posts back in the day when I was a sneaky lurker but never saw the other side from you Hof...thanks for letting us be pooky and part of your love affair....you guys are great!

At 1:18 PM, Blogger hofzinser said...

OK, ok... Kira and Wordwhiz and you (the one reading this right now) are the hottest readers I have.

As for my male readers... we know and need not prove Nothing!

I was hot . . . for six months, back in 1987.

wordwhiz: I disagree...I only claim to have the biggest pair of balls...

At 7:39 PM, Blogger MoeThatsMe said...

I can't believe how much time I've spent reading blogs today.. damn you BR, for the best blog reference site! *sigh* Looks like I'll be working this weekend.

Thanks for sharing, it was very nice to read, even if it was backwards.

I have a 2700 mile long distance relationship that's working it's way to year three. I'm pleased to know there are others out there that sicken those around them and who continue to learn new things about each other every day just by talking.

Yep - I'm all mushy - and happy to be so.. and now I have to go back to work.

Heart felt thanks for sharing, and continued success in the long distance arena.
