Well, my Angelfire website has a link back to my LJ. And my father is an old-school hacker, from back in the days when there was no such thing as a CS or CIS degree, you just apprenticed, played around with shit, and read up on what books there were. And since I'd actually given them the link to my Angelfire website, and since FatherSir plays around and explores places, and online is no different, he found my journal. And he didn't mention it to me.
So tonight I called my parents, figuring that I'd better, and the subject of weight loss came up, and I mentioned mine, and FatherSir called me on it, referencing the bathing suit that I figured I'd need to lose thirty more pounds to have fit properly. I explained that this was the new, replacement bathing suit, and the old one was due for retirement. And then the Clue Stick hit, because I hadn't written to my parents about the new bathing suit, and in fact, the only place I'd discussed it other than in person with my roommates was in my journal.
So FatherSir and I started discussing stuff from my journal. Evidently he's been lurking for a while. I wonder if he's actually going to get a journal of his own so he can comment? I have anonymous posting disabled because of the problems with same, namely that the people who do post to your journal anonymously are often the ones that you'd like least to be doing that. I mentioned that I'd created a Flaming Asshole user picture, though of course I had to weaselword it because Mama was on the phone too.
And of course FatherSir hasn't seen any of my friends-locked posts, like my plans for what I'm doing this Thursday (which posts are only locked in the very off chance that he-who-must-not-be-named-because-he-pref
It was an interesting conversation. So far, I think Mama is the only close relative who hasn't seen my journal.
