So Neil had this cool idea. He asked that readers send in photos of their beds, because really -- how interesting. How we sleep, what our beds and bedrooms look like, say so much about us. (Not that I contributed. I mean, you pretty much know everything there is to know about me and seeing my lovely-but-almost-always-disheveled bed is not going to provide any new insight.)
Taking this one step further, Laurie decided to ask her readers to provide snapshots of their favorite knitting spots. And of course, her awesome readers replied and she compiled them and it's quite remarkable.
Sometimes I am blown away by how humanizing the Internet can be.
Anyway, I was telling Ish* about this, because a) it's so humanizing and interesting and b) I talk about my blog acquaintances as though they are everyday friends in "real life," because to me, they are.
"Hey, so did you see what Neil did with the pictures of beds?" I asked.
"No, what?" he replied.
"Neil asked his readers to send in pictures of their beds, and then Laurie asked people to send in pictures of their favorite knitting spots and it's just really cool."
"Did they get a lot of pictures?" Ish inquired.
He paused only briefly.
"I think I should do the same thing on my blog..."
"Oh?" I asked.
"...But I'm going to ask for pictures of boobs."
I stared at him. He grinned.
"Think it'll work?"
*For those of you just joining our program, Ish is my boyfriend. He is so named because he is, among other things, an aspiring comedian. As such, someone once said he is funny...ish.
