Blogging on blogs. Blahhhhg.

Over at Bend There Done That, Allegories in Life is talking about having to tell people she's straight just because she lives in the lesbo paradise that is Eugene, Oregon.

But she also says "Man or woman, it's just never a good idea to develop crushes on those you work closely with each day." OK, that sounds good in practice, but isn't it true that most relationships start in the workplace? We spend so much time there that it's the #1 place to meet people, right?

... Not that any of my workplace relationships have ever ended in anything but disaster, come to think of it ...

Also on BTDT, Write Up Your Alley (That handle has perverse connotations, does it not? Eh? Not? I'm a total perv? Fair. Not the first time I've been accused) takes a stand on the age old question, "Is it OK to post photos of your boyfriend's disgusting underwear on your blog?"

You actually have a "homos" tag on this blog?

My favorite tag is "Thank god I'm not you."

When I was writing the post, I thought this was more of a "Dating is Weird" than "Bend there done that" topic

It may not be a good idea to be attracted to people that you work with, but it seems like it just kind of comes with the territory...you can only work side by side with someone on a daily basis for so long before you start getting a little antsy in the pantsy. True, they usually end up collapsing on themselves like a dying star, but they at least make work more interesting for the short term...

I actually think that there should be an anonymous blog for posting disgusting pictures of in-use and disturbingly neglected tore-up manpanties. Vent your frustrations!

I once dated a man who left tightie whities laying around with skidmark stains on them.

How I didn't figure out that one sooner ....

@ Kate
Dying star metaphors are nice, but I never had anything that thrilling ... just awkward, "Um, yeah, about the other night. Look, I was really drunk, and, um, no." -conversations.

@SD
I think you've just come up with your million dollar idea. Way to share it with all of our readers. Wonder who'll steal it first?

@Anon
Ew.

I like the new homos tag. That may be the first time even I was like, whoa DIW, whoa.

Hey, I lubbs me some homos! I don't see what the big whoop is.
