Electronic Reality (Congratulations)

So I was just thinking that Brozy and BAWB are getting married today and I was thinking about how we, the readers of their blogs, have seen their lives apart and together for the past couple years, and it's almost like we know them. Well, as a matter of fact, I do know them, but I certainly know them better because I read their blogs then I would if I'd just seen them at the occasional get together over the past year and a half. In a voyeuristic-but-not-in-a-creepy-way sort of way, Brozy and BAWB let their blog readers be flies on their walls. And it occurred to me that blogging is sort of the literate person's version of reality television, except without the million-dollar prizes and Paris Hilton. And really, if there's anything the world needs less of, it's Paris Hilton.

So thank you, Brozy and BAWB, for blogging about yourselves instead of Paris Hilton. And congratulations on tying the knot (assuming you did, because this will be sort of awkward if you didn't).

The most beautiful thing in the world is a match well-made.

At least, Emma thinks so.

Awww. Thanks, Ben. (And TB. And thanks to all of you for our plates, too.)

I'm glad I've been able to know you better than Paris Hilton has.

I think my blog needs more Paris Hilton.
