The results of our informal, unofficial poll on our last blog post was overwhelmingly #7, which was to just keep writing our blog as Calvin and Jake. This was a pretty big relief. Mostly because we ARE Calvin and Jake and it would have really sucked to create a new blog next week called "Unmarried Mormons Who Are Confessing Stuff From Their Pad" and named ourselves Carl and Jeremy. (We actually DID think about that, by the way.) Thankfully, we don't have to do that now. We can just keep doing what we've been doing. Which is writing our blog in real time... without any sort of significant delay.
The option that came in 2nd place was #4 which asked us to answer some questions as honestly as possible. So we're gonna try to address some of your concerns. We've compiled all 232 comments and decided to answer the five most frequently asked and/or easiest ones to answer:
Question #1: Do you know Cameron Daley and John Maxim?
Answer: We've known of them for quite some time. We know them better now thanks to this email conversation that we're summing up for your viewing pleasure.
John Maxim: Hello, MBP. Cameron and I have received several friend invitations on Facebook over the last couple of days. When we ask how we know them, they all seem to point to your blog. Can you explain this to me, please?
MormonBachelorPad: Hi John. Some people seem to think we (Calvin and Jake) and you (John and Cameron) are one and the same. We disagree, for obvious reasons, but we weren't shy about reposting the information since we thought you might appreciate the additional traffic to your hilarious movie reviews and comic strips.
John Maxim: Cameron pointed out the additional traffic on his personal blog and we both got a little nervous until we figured out what was going on. When are you planning on coming clean?
MormonBachelorPad: Well, we weren't ever planning on formally denying it. In fact, even though you're really old guys, we don't mind being compared to you at all.
John Maxim: I've spent a little time today reading your blog. I can't help but notice some strong similarities between my relationship with Cameron and your relationship with each other in your blog. Some of the similarities are so strong, it doesn't seem like a coincidence.
MormonBachelorPad: Well, John, that's really easy to explain- [censored]
Q 2: Did you write the original blog post on mbprevealed.blogspot.com that exposed your "real" identities and then changed it to a comical pretzel story?
Answer: Yes we did. And we haven't decided what to do with that blog yet. We're pretty sure we're gonna keep it around and use it to confuse and confound everyone who happens to visit. So, be prepared.
Q 3: Do you write exposembp.blogspot.com... the blog dedicated to figuring out who you are?
Answer: For the answer to that really good question, click here.
Q 4: Do you run and/or operate any other blogs we should know about?
Answer: Yes. We are the authors of several blogs that we created and run for the sole purpose of throwing as many people off our trail as humanly possible. The blogs we write include, but are not limited to:
-The Boob Nazi blog
- Seriously So Blessed
- www.32yearolddivorcedandmarriedguyslives.blogspot.com (in the works).
-www.exposeMBPrevealer.com (essentially devoted to exposing us, in an extremely roundabout way)
-www.revealMBPexposer.com (trying to figure out who writes www.exposeMBPrevealer.com)
Q 5: Why did you delete your Twitter account, Facebook, and disable blog comments for a few hours?
Answer: Our original plan was to be as confusing as possible. Unfortunately, in the process of "deactivating" and "disabling" we inadvertently deleted our Twitter account. With Facebook, you can deactivate and reactivate with ease. In Blogger, "hiding" and "showing" comments is as easy as clicking a button. Unfortunately, when a person deletes a Twitter account... it's actually gone. Forever. And ever.
If you're interested and not technologically retarded, feel free to click this link and be cool like us.
Always and forever,
C and J
