That's Going to Leave a Mark 

Alert readers who peruse my sidebar (who am I kidding?) will have noticed that I am currently reading Paul Ford's novel, Gary Benchley, Rock Star, which is pretty damned funny. There is one passage, however, which hit a little too close to home. Gary is attending a blogger party with the woman (a blogger, of course) he is currently pursuing:
All the bloggers were really glad to meet you, and curious to know whether you knew who they were, and if you read their blog. If there is one word to describe bloggers, it is "vulnerable." Another word - well, phrase - might be "incredibly self-aware." Talking to them was like seeing Smiths songs come to life.

Ouch.
