Thursday 15/05/08

So we've all read and enjoyed the stories from the last few days and particularly yesterday. What we may not all have seen though are two comments posted by Anonymous, and these comments tell us:

Superman is a god and he is straight, but thanks for appreciating him .

To which I replied "do you know him then" and then we had:

Yes I do . Will pass on your blog details to him .
15 May 2008 07:33

So apart from the fact that I'm worried that Superman's friend might not be getting enough sleep with being online at 0002 and 0733...

...This may be a hoax, but it may also be real, in which case Superman is probably reading the blog erm...right about now. So hello, Superman.

If Superman is indeed reading the blog, I am looking forward to the following things:

1) Having to change gyms AGAIN, because it's way too embarrassing to go there anymore

2) Investigating why Superman's anonymous commenting friend leaves a space between the sentence and the full stop at the end of it. Is this the way Superman and his friends type? Cause I'll start doing it if it is .

3) Finding out whether Superman would actually like to be my best friend ever (note to Superman: I am a lot less brain damaged in real life than I come across on this blog)

Finally, Anonymous-friend-of-Superman's can you please confirm that this is not a hoax by leaving a comment (which I won't publish) or emailing me with Superman's name in real life so I can see whether you actually know him?

And finally finally, Superman if you're reading this and you see me in the gym tonight, instead of beating me up why don't you come and talk to me and show me all your exercises so I can steal them and be muscly? Thank you.

This is very amusing. SO much so that I'm not even annoyed anymore that the person I came in at 8.30am to have a meeting with failed to turn up.

Dick Pics said...

i don't know that i believe he knows superman but if he does i have a feeling the story about the upcoming encounter between you two will be both awkward and priceless.

Superman's friend could very well work for an i-bank in the City. In which case he is most definitely online at 2400 and again at 0700. If he's lucky.

Oh, to work in marketing. . . .

This is getting more interesting by the hour.

Some things are best left observed from a distance, like polar bears and jaguars, avalanches and tornadoes and, of course, Kylie Minogue.

nathan: It is but I'm still waiting for an update. Come on Superman. Get in touch

dick: Yes, it's worth the embarrassment just to write about it

jason: Actually I suspect Superman's "anonymous friend" works in a law firm. But yes, long hours too I guess

anon: But now we've stalled :-(

scott: Do we think Superman falls in that category?

Nathan said...

He would never be in at 7am if he worked for a law firm. Late yes. Early no. Unless he sent the second one from home.

Meaning that he's OBSESSED with you. And could theoretcially transfer this obsession to Superman.

Excellent. I'm liking how this is playing out.

I think its a ruse--you had mentioned several times in comment responses last night that you were concerned that Superman might be reading your blog. Anonymous probably took his cue from that. In fact, anony may be you or a friend (Mean?) to drum up some suspense for the story. You were up late last night and early this morning. Fact or fiction? We'll find out when you hit the gym later.

London Preppy said...

oldy: I can promise you it wasn't me! Other than that, I don't know

Oldyeller said...

Okay; sorry. Can't wait to hear what if anything happens at the gym (you MUST go).

AlwaysReadySF said...

Just walk up to Superman and - matter of fact-like - say: "Hey mate, you seem like a nice and open minded guy so I thought I'd ask...what are your thoughts about internet blogs? Do you like them? Hate them? Find them amusing?"
;-)

timbo said...

It's funny, but it's fake. And what's with the "thank you for appreciating him"? That's some shit a psycho possessive girlfriend would say all passive-aggressively to a hotter chic who's checking out her boyfriend. So lame. He/she/it is trying to rattle you. But it is funny. That's all that matters.

The Neighbors Will Hear said...

It's all a cruel joke. From the way you describe Superman, he'd be thrilled to have you as a friend/worshipper. What hot straight boy doesn't want a hot gay boy as a wingman? Anon is cruelly raising your hopes. If you want Superman to be your BFF, you're probably going to have to do it without the assistance of the Internet, I'm afraid.

Gary said...

It’s good that you’re embarrassed since that works so well for you (we all remember the goodbye video shot just before Greek Easter). So why not go right up to superman and just talk to him? Most likely you’ll stammer around, laugh, smile, repeat yourself several times and find that you’ve charmed the pants right off him. Go to it, Preppy!

Bregalad said...

First thing to do is to check if it's a hoax. I hope you have Anon's IP address. (Does Blogger provide that? It's been a while since I have blogged on Blogger. I know that livejournal reveals IP addresses for anonymous comments. Or, maybe your clustermaps can help you). If you do, then geo-locate him. Is he even in/around London? You might be completely misreading the time if he is not. See if you can pinpoint his location within London. Stalk your stalker.

London Preppy said...

timbo: You have no idea how close you are to the truth!

the neighbours: I agree. I don't want the internet to ruin this. I can be friends with him in real life. I can do it!

gary: Fine, fine, I will. I promise

bregalad: I have IP addresses yes, but I can't be bothered to pursue this now. I know who it was anyway. The only annoying thing is that he/she/it wasted today's post, where I could have written a usual post instead

Dick Pics said...

and that's what makes you a great blogger. you're willing to be embarrassed to entertain your readers.

AlwaysReadySF said...

Well you can't leave us hanging like this. Who is he/she/it?

London Preppy said...

dick: Well as we know I do like the humiliation. And the ridiculousness

always: Nah, it's not worth it, you only encourage this kind of thing if you go on about it

Alex said...

So, LP, from your recent comments I'm guessing you revealed a hoax? I thought from the wording this guy wasn't for real: but I was rootin' for you the whole way!

London Preppy said...

alex: Correct Alex. Oh well, it's better this way - I can go ahead with my original plan of warming my way into Superman's friendship without any "common acquaintances" ruining it.

I'm going to post tomorrow's entry now (even though there haven't been 24 hours which is my rule) so we can all forget about this and move on

Nix said...

Some intrigue on LP: this is great stuff! We need more info on your suspicions.

You know you can convert the IP address into a domain name (which might be a company), using a page like http://www.hcidata.info/host2ip.htm

London Preppy said...

nix: That's brilliant, thanks a lot!
