    Today makes the more-than-two weeks mark doing this blogging thing.

    I've really preferred this setting. The trouble is with a real blog, a 'personal' blog, I feel watched, like I'm the main attraction. Some people love that. Some folks would stand on a soapbox, naked but for their beliefs, and preach all about it.

    You've probably realised by now I'd rather not do that. I'd rather not bore people with the mundaneness of my day-to-day life. And as for my belief system, I'd like to think people wouldn't confide in me if it wasn't clear I had one. What does that leave me to blog about? Not much.

    Yesterday was a long day. Got out of the house for a short while before returning home to receive confession. (What <em>else</em> am I supposed to call it, I'm not a <em>therapist</em> for fucksake.) It was a long line waiting for me yesterday (maybe because it was sunday..?). I really should make a miniature corner office for it. I'd turn one of the closets into a wood paneled chamber, but I have a feeling my partner would resent that. But come on, think about it! I could get a webcam, put a wicker screen in front of it and dim the lights. Sitting in profile with a keyboard in my lap I could address the huddled masses.

    "How long has it been since your last confession? <em>Confesssssssssssssss</em>." </ol>
    And people wonder why I don't use instant messaging.

    Now you're just giving people ideas that they can make money from.

    I wouldn't do it personally.

    I'm a mass (of what, answers on a postcard please...), but if I huddle for too long I get a sore back.

    Someone would do that shit <em>on purpose? </em> I was <em>kidding</em>. No one should listen to me, I'm so short-sighted my insights are only skin deep.

    Besides, the Catholic church is always eager to find a new way to make people feel guilty and ashamed. I'm sure they already thought of this one.

    Oh the Catholics do that for shits and giggles.

    Just imagine it: halfseenmasturbatingconfessor.com

    It would be a smash. Incidentally I was going to put 'priest' instead of 'confessor'.

    The terrific thing about the word 'confessor', and the website name, is that it works on either side of 'the screen'.
