The Trap of Perception

Joe seems to under the impression that the blogosphere is populated solely by "get-a-life" type losers who, for some inexplicable reason, feel compelled to share the mundane details of their achingly average lives with the world at large, as if anybody besides themselves actually cared, with a typical entry reading something like this:
Called in sick to work today, then went back to bed and slept until 2 pm. Woke up. Ate a bowl of Lucky Charms. Milk smelled funny, but used it anyway. Masturbated to Oprah Winfrey show, then smoked a joint and watched 9 straight hours of VH-1 and fell asleep with the TV on. Probably gonna call of tomorrow, too. My job sucks and I work with idiots.
My girlfriend, Sara, dumped me. She said I was an "unmotivated loser."
Where's she getting that from?
To be sure, there are plenty of those types of blogs out there. Hit the "Next Blog" button up top and you like as not be taken straight to one.
