a P.S.A.

a public. service. announcement.

sooooo, it seems that we have been "informed" by ben's "higher in command" also known as his "supervisors," that while he is, in fact, a "therapist" for some who qualify as "mentally unstable," that it isn't the most "wise" idea to have a public "forum" that shares possibly "intimate" or even just routine "daily" details of the future "doctor's" life and family.

apparently it could be "dangerous" if someone were to become "angryslashpossiblyobsessed" with the bearded "gentleman" or his self-professed "fabulous" wife or "lovely" children and be able to "google" any of them to "find out" more than they "should."

are the quotes "bothering" you?

because i think they're "funny."  only because i read them "out loud" to myself and "enunciate" the words in "quotes."

bottom line is, in the next week or two, this blog will be changed to a private setting.

wait, wait.

haven't i done this before?  taking off our pictures, changing the other blog over to private & was supposed to only have writing on this one?  and then got too lazy so i just started double-posting, and then got even lazier when the online show asked me to keep it public so people could link over to them and then i stopped posting on the private blog all together?  and isn't this like the 3rd time i've changed over to a private blog?

why yes, i think it is.  some would consider that flaky.  or wishy-washy.  i call it just a plain struggle to commit.  but when i was read statistics of how many therapees have stalked their therapists and we all know how easily those with just a small amount of determination can have internet access, well.  
and then ben was told these things by those who would like to keep his family safe....

well darn it, i guess we should listen to them.

and let's be fair, i'll probably change my mind again in another 6 months.

now i could go back through the tramillion words i have written and take out our names and any private info, and maybe someday i will.  but today is not that day.  i have bigger fish to fry, and bigger babies to cook than to have to go through all of that right now.

since i have a difficult time myself checking up on private blogs to see when/if they've posted, i'll link to my facebook page each time i do.  you'll still need an invite to view it, but at least then those who are my FB friends will know when things are happening.  

so if you'd like to keep up on what's going on around here, then leave a comment with your email address & i'll send an invite in the next couple of weeks when i change it over to a private blog.

unless you're crazy and out to stalk us, of course.  

then please let me know, and i guess here is where we will part & go our separate ways.

because we straders can only handle our own crazy at this point in the game. 



check out my neck, isn't that pure awesomeness? 





so i say with all of the love in my heart, to the mentally ill out there who can't help themselves and have the desire to find us and wear our skin pelts:
it's not us, it's you.  a wholehearted thanks for making things just a little more difficult.

Does this count as stalking when I'm the first one to comment?!!! pjsmart11 at hotmail. I almost put homail... which would mean something very, very different.

Oh Lindsay, in the words of Gershwin, "I've grown accustomed to your face." Your blog has become a source of inspiration for me, plus it's fun to keep up with the going-ons of two of my favorite high school buddies. I am crazy, but too busy with my own life to stalk anybody. So I guess I'm harmless. :-) melodylaser@gmail.com

very smart! so is that why you don't ever check my blog anymore? ;) jk...I can relate to the whole blogging stuff, but we decided everything was better off if we stayed private. you know you better include me! garrycarlson at gmail p.s. I'm so excited for you guys on the arrival of your 3rd little bundle of joy! Good luck with everything!

I want an invite!!!!! but i have to say i view less with private, even if I can get there easy. (I don't know why) I did some things with my blog that make it VERY hard to get to unless you know the address. I made my profile private and you can't search me on google. I like that alternative. Anyway, I guess it's better to be safe than sorry!
