If you're part of the Anthro/J.Crew/ fashion blogging community, I'm sure you've seen *cue psycho Hitchcock music* this guy . . .
Yep, I've seen him lurking on plenty of blogs. Every time I swing by my all my girly blogs, I see him on the right hand side under the GFC followers. *Cough* He's not easy to miss. I mean, it's like catching a guy in a girl's restroom. The first thing that comes to mind is, "Dude, what the hell are you doing here?!?"
So I thought I'd switch thing up a notch and have a little fun with this. *cue Jaws music* This is a special edition. Lisa of Dateline XYZ investigates . . . To Catch a Pervo.
Me and my crew (my furry companions) sat in front of the monitor. My heart was pounding and my stomach was lurching as I clicked on this picture. . .
Whoa! That's a little freaky deaky. Anyways, this is what came up:
Okay, so now I know that this suspect has a name and his name is Dave. And he travels. So I decide to click the link Dave's Travel Corner and this site pops up with fancy stamps on the header and a somewhat Craig's List-ish layout. So naturally, I click About Us. And WHAMO! There's Dave again. Reading on, I learn that Dave is an international travel writer with a pretty impressive resume. He could give Lance Armstrong a run for, correction, a 'cycle' for his money.
And on that site, there's a bigger pic of Dave on the summit crater of Mt Ranier Washington. At first glance, I thought he climbed Mt Everest. But hey, Mt Ranier is no easy feat. So Respect and Big Ups to Dave.
Oh here is a quote from Dave on his site ~ "Ownership of most things is overrated. Ownership of worldly experience is not. "
I guess I half agree with Dave. I think worldly experiences is a good thing. But I'll have to admit that I also find pleasure in the other things in life, namely the material things. One of my very fav. quotes is by CS Lewis, and you can find it on Jan's blog ~ "God loves material things. He made them!"
So here's my question to Dave. ~ If you find ownership of most things overrated, then why are you lurking on all these girly blogs that are solely dedicated to the pursuit and ownership of all things material? (clothes, shoes, bags, etc . . .)
Conclusion ~ Dave is not a pervo. Although I set out to catch one, all I caught was a mountain climber.
Disclosure ~ Dave is much more than that. If you're curious to read more about this harmless and accomplished guy, you can check out his bio here.
I guess that wasn't scandalous or provocative AT ALL. No hidden camera crew, no cops jumping out of bushes. Oh well, that concludes tonight's episode of To Catch a Pervo with Lisa L on Dateline XYZ. *cue credits roll.*

So . . . just curious, do you allow boys to follow your blogs? Or is it just strictly girls only.
Any GFC followers give you the heebie jeebies? Feel free to list 'em and I'll investigate . . . next time.
