So, there's some blogs I read. I used to think they were awesome. Or something. For whatever reason, awesome or not, I subscribed to them in Google Reader. I've since decided they are un-awesome. Or, at the very least, irrelevant and gumming up the grease in the quest for simplifying my life. (QUEST, I tell you!) So, like a good Simplification-Questerian, I went to my little "manage subscriptions" button in Reader and I unsubscribed to several previously-important blogs.
I'll have you know, taking that step relaxed my mentally faculties. I refreshed my little Reader page and discovered less to read. Less is more, don't you know?
A week or so went by and I experienced blissful simplicity via Google Reader.
Google Reader began thinking for itself. We might be dealing with some sort of A.I. here, folks.
Right there, in my Reader feed, were those blogs that had fallen through the cracks of pertinence. Those blogs I had eliminated from my brain-clutter had returned. Why? I don't know.
So, I repeated the process. Unsubscribe. No thanks, lovely blogs.
Again, I went on my merry, on-the-path-to-the-simple-life way.
A week-ish passed again... log in to Reader...
I have now gone through this process three times. And tonight, once again, the blogs are back.
DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND, READER!!!?????
Just let me be, blogs. Get thee hence. Please!?
I am mystified.
