A while back, I started messing with another blog. I originally called it "Dear Stupid" and made it a sort of tongue-in-cheek "advice column". I think it was motivated more by my desire to be a pest and a brat in its early days.
What it's turned into is something else. I'm home now, taking care of Pop, and in the morning we watch a lot of the "magazine" shows such as Today. Along with their day-to-day news stories, they run regular features that could fall under the heading of "Relationship advice."
The only problem I have is, a lot of the advice to women about handling things with men is coming from "experts" who happen to be women. I can tell you, as a guy, that a lot (not all, but a lot) of the stuff they're feeding to the populace is, pardon the crudity, a load of crap. Now I can't speak for every guy but, hey, if someone told my best friend that the best cure for a headache was pounding her head with a hammer, I'd sort of feel compelled to speak up a little, ya know?
Now, what's pushed me into turning that blog/column into something a little more legitimate is my friend's blog "Love, Life and Logic". The things that she writes really get me thinking (in a good way, for a change) because she's a lot smarter than the so-called "professionals" I see on shows like "Today". We don't really engage in debate, but rather we look at the same things from different angles, and I think we come up with some pretty good stuff. She writes articulately and intelligently from the Woman's point of view, and I, well, I'm Lippy!
Anyway, someday I'll learn to get my stuff down to less than 10,000 pages. I'd love to invite you over to that other place of mine to get involved.
