Bloggyland's MOST WANTED

Do you see this handsome devil here? He is the love of my life. He can also drive me crazy with his extreme disdain and dislike of blogging. Yes, I said it. I spilled the beans. I have exposed him for what he is. He is a traitor to all that is beautiful and lovely in my precious blogdom.


Logically supernatural, he reminds me often that 'my friends' in blogland are not my friends at all. Blasphemy! Really Paul? And how would you know or understand my friends in the blogworld, unless of course you started your own blog.

He tells me that he is thinking of doing just that. He taunts me, saying he would name his blog http://www.wheres-my-underwear.blogspot.com/, or http://www.what-am-ithinking-right-now.blogspot.com/

When he wants to talk with me, he walks away mumbling that he will leave a comment on my blog instead.

Just this morning, I was sharing with him that I was frustrated when I couldn't respond to a comment left because the gal's blog was private. He just looked at me with an evil eye and slowly started shaking his head, wagging his pointed finger in my face. "The blog-police are going to get her for that."


No my darling. Do you hear the sirens? The blog-police are on their way for you.

I loved this because my hubby teases me too. I told him I wrote a blog about him called "My hubby is cramping my blog." He just laughed.

Since he's a pastor, and I have to live with these people, I feel that he wields a bit more power than I do, lol. But so far he has used it wisely and has not made my blogging a topic of a sermon...yet.

Ahhhh men- they just don't understand.
In his defense- I never would have believed the friends I've gained had I not seen it first hand either- but still....men......:)

I enjoyed reading this. Maybe some it has to do with the fact that my husband shows his disdain for the blogging world, too. Only he isn't as kind about it as your husband is.

Since we moved nearly two years ago I have not made any friends. Acquaintances, but not real friends. Partly because I don't leave the house a lot unless it's errands or medical appointments (and church, but I miss a lot of church). So blogging has opened up a whole world for me and saved me from certain insanity. God bless the blogging world and God bless you, Joanne! *said in my best presidential voice*

This is funny...my hubby gets annoyed with blogging too! I get on the computer sometimes in the evenings and I know he just cringes! He's not alone in how he feels about blogging...maybe that will make him feel closer to us! He can join in with the other husbands who get annoyed...what a connection-see he's already making friends!

Mari said...

My hubby is the same way, but guess what? He has a blog too. However - he doesn't blog like I do. Men don't seem to get that connection like women do. You tell Paul "I am too your friend!"

SharonB said...

While I might not be able to have a chat with you over coffee and we may never meet face to face until heaven, but we are sisters in Christ and that makes us friends.

I'm not sure men get the whole relational thing... :-)

Elizabeth M Thompson said...

Too funny! When the blog patrol arrives and slaps the cuffs on Paul, would you post a photo for all your "virtual friends?"

Beth in NC said...

Ahhhh, men. Sigh. Women are just social creatures. We need to connect -- men can go gather nuts and food and be happy. lol (Ok, don't share that comment with him.) hee hee

Big smile ..

LOL - I happened here from BooMama's and am so glad I did! You gave me my huge laugh for the morning - something everyone should have! I'm sure my hubby thinks the same thing about me.

I enjoyed visiting and your Christmas pictures are beautiful! Thank you for sharing! I will definitely be back to visit again.

God bless you ~ Julie

This is absolute a riot...funnEEE. Not friends...what's he know. I loved that he said he'd leave you a comment when he wanted to talk. Yeah, tell him to create his blog and all your FRIENDS will stalk him. Where's my underwear...that's a good 'un.

Your NOT-friend friend,
Paula

I AM REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You just tell him I AM REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I have even talked with you on the phone!!! ...and I loved it!!!

and if he does a blog about his underwear...I just won't even read it...do you hear me? That's just a bit wierd!

Joanne said...

I probably should have shared that he wants to name his blog 'where's my underwear?' because he says that I don't put away the laundry anymore.

Hee Hee Hee

Wendy said...

tell him "blessed are they that BELIEVE [blog friends are real] and have yet NOT SEEN [them in person" ;o) That's called faith, right? :D

It's a man thing! My husband just doesn't get it either! Hey I understood about the "where's my underwear" name!

Dana and Daisy said...

you are not alone my friend! I have heard these same blasphemous words out of my husband's mouth.

Jealousy I tell ya!

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

This was soooo funny! I had to tell my hubby and he gives your hubby a big thumbs up on the blog names!!

Mine threatened to start his own "counter-blog" where each time I posted, he would post a picture of unfolded laundry, unwashed dishes, etc!

And he doesn't quite get how I could be friends with people that I don't "know" - LOL!

beloved Mama said...

My husband doesn't get it either! But he uses it as an excuse to play his video games, which I despise!!!

Kate said...

Too funny....Around here my husband will spend hours on Facebook talking to our old bible college friends or with our "Southern" friends from our brief stint in the south, but while I haven't talked to a college friend in years, I end up emailing bloggy friends til all hours of the night. I guess friends with blog profiles and headshots are more fun.

Angie said...

Okay---so I'm not real eh? We'll see about that! If things work out that we both get to go back for the "She Speaks" Conf...YOU make SURE you take him not one itty bitty crumb of whatever kind of cake I bring us to snack on!!!!!! Not one single CRUMB!!!

Wendy said...

Joanne,
My husband calls friends on the internet "cyberfriends", with a tone of disdain, and actually says, "they're not real"! Even though some are people we know, he maintains that what is done in "cyberspace" is "not real".

Here's my take on this:
Our husbands don't feel they can be a part of this part of our lives, and there is a bit of jealousy of those "out there", and protective impulses come over them--but "how can I protect the woman I love from someone or something that I can't touch or see?!!" It also is frustrating to him when there's no underwear in the drawer, but I have hundreds of "followers" who are more important to me, (or so he thinks) than taking care of him.

So, what do you think of my hypothesis?

You are not alone, and neither is Paul!
Blessings,
Wendy
