I got a wonderful comment on my last post this afternoon:
I just wanted to say how much I loved your blog? Are you still writing the blog or have you finished?
Also, I love SJF! SJF is awesome. Are you going to write more about him?
Funnily enough, SJF has recently discovered my blog. Rather than be upset, the fact that he has an internet presence has only fueled his already gigantic ego, claiming that I should in fact write more about him.
So this afternoon, when I saw this comment, I naturally assumed it was him being funny. I called him up and said, "Funny blog comment. You're so ridiculously vain." He claimed to have no idea what I was talking about, or rather what I was talking about after mentioning the blog comment (he knows he's vain). Assuming he was just playing dumb, I wasn't having any of it. Finally, I read the comment to him and he said "NO WAY! Let me see!"
It then took roughly ten minutes to explain what it means to type a website address into a URL bar. (I forgot how pathetically computer illiterate he is and realized he was not capable of leaving a comment)
"Who wrote that?"
"I don't know, 'R'?"
"There's got to be some way to find out! I want to meet this brilliant person!"
So, thank you "R" for your wonderful comment, but know that I then had to spend 20 minutes listening to SJF tell me what a legend he is, that there should really be more stories about him and my "fans were calling." Thank you.
