I'm In Love-Part I

Okay, Nina brought it up, so...I dare to go there. The topic you ask? Blog crushes. I know that many times before, we've toyed with this, and had a few cute-sy ones of our own, but what I'm speaking of here my friends is something a little deeper...

Each day we visit our blogs, those of you who are like me, we go up and down our Blog roll and read the latest post by our wonderful friends. We also check out any new Bloggers who may stumble upon our paths in comments. Well, one day I stumbled upon...correction, actually, I think he stumbled upon me, and the moment I clicked that link, I was hooked. Literally.

This man is someone to be admired. He is the epitome of greatness in/through his writing. His words quite often jump right off the screen and move me in ways unknown to mankind. To him, it seems as though the world is crazy, life is real, and time is of the essence. The more I read, the more I'm drawn to him. His writing has taken my imagination down the road less traveled. He has style, grace, and a certain charm about him...he's mysterious, he's untamed...he's all that and a bag of fucking Lay's potato chips...I'm telling you Nance!

So when I confessed "my love" to Nina one day, before she alluded to it in her blog, she decided to check him out, and was quite impressed with him. She completely understood my overactive hormones, and my impetuous fervor with each and every mention of his name...I am in Blog Love!

In comments...how do you feel about Blog crushes? Is this a naughty little thing for us to do and/a sly little way for us to "cheat?" How about a stab at who my crush is?

You can make some serious money off of this post by starting a betting pool.

You know, it would be something like:

Dagromm - 5 to 1
Gyuss - 4 to 1
Cyber D - 3 to 1
That 'Chocolate Rain' Dude - 200 to 1

Because I would totally put $20 on That 'Chocolate Rain' Dude.

I know it is a longshot and a sucker bet and how I'm kissing my money away, but I can totally see how his voice can set hearts a-flutter.

heather said...

i'm thinking it's not one of the original quad but it ~is~ someone in my blogroll...

NoRegrets said...

I guess it doesn't matter if he's married? and now I have to go check Heather's blog roll...

Churlita said...

I'm putting my money on Gyuss. If I win, do I get a prize?

Susan said...

I think it's that Mac Pimp guy, right? :D

Tera said...

MrT~Love the concept!!! And erum...how does one meet said Chocolate Rain?

Heather~I can't give it away too soon, but stay tuned...

NoR~To tell whether or not he's married may also give it away...but there's a chance that he's not...also a chance that he's not on Heather's blog roll, damn, let me go check!

Churlita~Hrrrmmm let me think about that and get back to you ;-)

Susan~Who is Mac Pimp? LMAO!!!!!

Nina said...

I'm here to tell m robert turnage, heather, no regrets, churlita and susan that you're all WRONG! Keep guessing!

Nina said...

sorry tera. I kinda took over. I'm feeling bossy today. :)

Tera said...

Nina~You had better knock that shit off!

Nina said...

I'm about to start giving hints.

I'm tired of you posting about stuff I can't fairly comment on. I'm going to call the Blog Police!!!

Tera said...

Nina~If you don't settle down, I will have to ask you to leave the sandbox.

Nina said...

fine.

M. Robert Turnage said...

That 'Chocolate Rain' Dude is named Tay Zonday.

His homepage:

But now that I'm thinking of it, maybe I should just give Nina my $20 in exchange for information.

Kofi said...

I'm in agreement with Heather.

Tera said...

MrT~And she's in rare form today, you might even get a discount!

Kofi~See Nina's comment...although...Heather may be partially right ;-)

Nina said...

I will take bribes...$20 is NOT enough :)

Tera said...

Nina you are a naughty, naughty girl!

NoRegrets said...

I was going to guess MrT...
Susan's guess is Bossmiggity. Whose blog I don't understand, I'm sorry. It must be my lack of color.

NoRegrets said...

But then again, I could be projecting, since I'm in love with MrT since he wrote me a limerick... ;-)

Tera said...

NoR~Oh, Bossmiggity is one of a kind, and just has a style all his own. I enjoy reading his stuff, but as you can see from Nina's previous responses, it's not him.

And erum...well now! Is this yet ANOTHER Blog crush emerging in our midst?! This is getting juicier by the minute!

M. Robert Turnage said...

All it took was a limerick?

No wonder I stayed single for so long. I always took the coffee, then cookies, then flowers, then chocolate, then assorted baked goods, then wine, then dinner, then dancing, then a movie, and finally a lot of hard liquor route to a woman's heart before.

NoRegrets said...

Tera, does this mean it is NOT mrt?
Oh, fine, run with it if you will...

MrT, it was the baked goods that did you in. And I think the liquor was to get to something else... :-)

Nina said...

humph

NoRegrets said...

Does someone have a Nina translator handy?

Tera said...

MrT~Damn were those women deaf, dumb, blind, and mute???

NoR~Ha!!!

Nina~LOL!

NoR~Ha!!!

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

whats a blog crush and who is he

M. Robert Turnage said...

In defense of all of the women I tried to woo when I was single, I was broke a lot of the time, having spent all of my money on coffee, cookies, flowers, chocolate, assorted baked goods, wine, dinner, dancing, movies, and hard liquor. There was one time I asked a teller at my bank for a date and she checked my account balance before turning me down.

I was also told several times I was not much of a challenge, boyfriend-wise.

In my mid-20s, I decided to stop pursuing ladyfriends and instead focus on having a career. Suddenly, I found myself flush with cash and turning down dates because I had to work late that night on some big project.

After a few years of focusing on being a workaholic who could easily afford buckets of coffee, cookies, flowers, chocolate, assorted baked goods, wine, dinner, dancing, movies, and hard liquor, I found myself married. Ta daaa!

To get back to your deaf, dumb, blind, and mute statement - my wife says stuff like that all the time. She has no idea why I wasn't snatched up a long time before she found me.

However, now I find myself wishing I had written more limericks.

Nina said...

Seriously, this is getting outta control! Somethings gotta give...soon!

Stay tuned for clue #1

Tera said...

MrT~Um...wow! I can't tell you how much it amuses me that you list buckets of coffee, cookies, flowers, chocolate, assorted baked goods, wine, dinner, dancing, movies, and hard liquor each time you say it...you just make my day! I can see why some think it's you!

LMAO! Oooh ooh, write one for me...Pllleeeeeaaaase!

Nina~Haven't I already told you to knock it off, you ruiner?!!!

Nina said...

NR~ No translation needed. Patience, little grasshopper, patience.

Torrence~Don't be silly. It's not hard to figure out what a blog crush is, you read the post!!! And I'm not ready to tell who it is yet, Tera is no longer in control!!

MRT~Wow! Sounds like you wasted a lot of money on women in your younger years. I'm glad someone finally snatched you up or you'd be living in the poor house from trying to woo women!

Tera~Back off already. I'm running this show now!

M. Robert Turnage said...

A blogger named Tera had a crush.
She wrote it all down in a rush.
But then a Ms. Nina
Made a big scene-a,
And caused the poor Tera to blush.

Tera said...

Nina~LOL! What the hell?!?! Excuse me while I check to see if the title of this blog is still Peruse and Ponder and not Ecleptic Concepts!

Tera said...

MrT~My panties are melting as we speak...oops! Maybe that was an overshare?! And don't go talking shit NoR! :-D

Nina said...

MRT~LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!

TERA~Be have and relax.

Nina said...

CLUE #1


The crush is in fact on a male blogger and but NOT on one of the original quad.

NoRegrets said...

Nina, come on...we already knew THAT!

TERA, why can't I talk shit? You aren't in control - nina is!! You can bring your panties puddle somewhere else...

Tera said...

NoR~Ha! Damn...my blog has been taken over!!! And really, she's just in control in her own mind. Panties Puddle...you crack me the eff up!!!

Nina said...

NoR~You're right, sorry.

Tera~you're treading on thin ice, woman!

NoRegrets said...

so, nina, where's the make up hint? :-) Oh goddess of peruse and ponder.

Tera said...

Nina~Watch that shit!

NoR~Watch that shit!

Nina said...

well since you called me goddess...

CLUE #2 Tera's blog crush is aged somewhere between 30 & 50 (thats a guess on my part, I'm not really sure) years old and often writes about mind altering substances.

M. Robert Turnage said...

Tera just wanted them to quit.
She cried out, "Hey! Watch that shit!"
Maybe Nina complied,
But NoR just replied,
"I'm NoR! I don't regret it a bit!"

Tera said...

Nina~Hmmmm you may have them on to something with that one...

MrT~You are really good at this...you and Nina BOTH are having a field day over here! :-)

Nina said...

Tera~my goal...to take over all of blog land!!!!

Nina said...

***UPDATE***

There will be no more clues until tomorrow.

NoRegrets said...

MRT, you are the limerick god!

Tera said...

Nina~LMAO that means you're tired of being on the Internet...don't worry...I got this shit!

Tera said...

NoR~I have learned that MrT is a man of many talents!

NoRegrets said...

You can go rub that in your panties puddle...

NoRegrets said...

Whew...sorry...got a little overexcited there...

Tera said...

NoR~I still can't get past this panties puddle reference...I have to figure out a way to use that again!

NoR~Hence, Panties Puddle!

Scott said...

I don't know because I haven't perused and pondered your blogroll, nor have I been here long enough. But I will say that you have paid a huge compliment to someone that can be very proud that his words can inspire such a reaction in you. I want to read this guy, so my all means, do tell!

The closest I've come to having a blog crush was actually a man-crush (if you will). His writing had a similar impact on me, but in a hetero kind of way. He talked about religion in a way that I thought only I thought about it, and his sense of humor was sharp. Turns out we live within thirty miles of each other, and we are great friends. Blog connections are the real deal.

Nance said...

Holy crap, am I late to this party or WHAT? Apparently, Nina's kid is taking good naps these days, or she's getting back into work mode early.

(Hey, Tera, thanks for the bloglove in the post mention.)

However, I'd rather be the blog crush, but I'm over it--no--really, I am.

It's enough that I'm Nina's...

Torrance Stephens bka All-Mi-T said...

pantie puddles lol when will we find out is it me

Nina said...

Scott~I want to know who your blog crush is so I can visit his page.

Nance~you weren't late, we were just over excited and got carried away. And you've just got to stop telling people you're my crush...I'm getting embarrassed :)

Torrance~you're quite presumptuous, yes?

Tera said...

Good grief! There she goes again! I didn't even get my ass over here good and she's already at it!!!

By the Way...

Nance you almost made me piss my pants...damn, would that have been yet ANOTHER (kind of) panty puddle? Hmmmm....anyways, what was I saying...oh, yes, you are a great writer and TRULY to be admired, but there's never any smut (well is that clue number 2?) to induce said panty puddles...YES, I got to say that again! :)

Tera said...

Nina, the new "Goddess of P&P" proudly reminded me that my clue is in fact Clue #3...Excuuuuuse me!

NoRegrets said...

Tera, what clue is clue #3??? I'm confused...

Tera said...

Reread my last two responses NoR...C-A-R-E-F-U-L-L-Y.

Nina said...

NoR~since Tera half spelled it out for you let me do the honors of the other half...

CLUE #3

Said crush never writes about smut.

Tera said...

Nina, looks like I should have spelled it out for you too! Correction...said blog crush DOES write about smut!

And you think you're running shit around here! Hmph!

Nina said...

sigh.

Celebrate Woo-Woo said...

My guess is kofi, though I can't recall smut posts exactly.

Tera said...

Woo~That's actually a great guess, but stay tuned...

M. Robert Turnage said...

So it looks like we're up to 65 comments (including this one). Which leads to my big question of the day - When are we going to see Part 2 of your love saga?

My money is still on Tay Zonday, the Chocolate Rain Dude, although Gyuss is still a very close second because I consider all political blogging to be smutty. Main reason I think it is Gyuss - he works in IT so the man knows how to lay cable (fiber optic networking cable, that is).

heather said...

damn, i've really gotta stop using the reader to check up on all of you.

my original guess still stands though. all the clues nina's been dropping and your phraseology fits it to a 't'. ;-)

Tera said...

Well MrT part 2 will be the reveal in which case I hope you havea limerick ready!

Heather...Nina is a woman of her word...your guess was incorrect :)

NoRegrets said...

So, all this sex, is it virtual, or real?

Tera said...

NoR what sex?? You must have been to Susan's blog...it's oh so real my friend! ;-)

heather said...

't' as in 'ts' which is what ~i~ call him!

~not~ mrt, as worthy as he may be.

Tera said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I thought you were on to it but wasn't sure! Great job!

No more about MrT...I can't be getting in cat fights with NoR about her piece!!!
