Do you remember those heady days when you first started dating someone? Those first few months when nothing was wrong, everything about them was perfect, and nobody passed gas?
Well now you can relive it through Steven and Angela. Shhh…they just started dating a month or two ago. Sometimes I’m envious, but mostly I’m like “That’s a bit much”.
Type in the same url as my blog, but with their names (one word, first his then hers) instead of “argoramb”. Sorry for not linking directly, but I’m just the guide and I don’t want to appear like I’m mocking them*. They’re just kids in love.
Which gets to my central point. Why blog this stuff? Is blogging eventually going to replace email and IM’ing as the hip way to communicate one’s feelings? What happens if** they start fighting? Will they kiss and make up via blogger too?
It all makes me long for the days of writing old-fashioned love letters. Or even telegrams for that matter. Although I’d imagine that all the references to “STOP” in a telegram might cause mixed messages for long-distance relationships

* And then have them discover me using TTLB or something.
