who is this desmond jones?

There is a man who calls himself Desmond Jones. (du-du-dunnnnn) He used to have his own blog, but now only leaves comments. He's married to Molly and has several children. Everything I know about him I learned from reading his comments and I have become more and more intrigued with this mysterious wanderer.

So I must ask the question: What do you know about Desmond Jones?

I know when you use a line from a Beatles song as a post heading, as I'm prone to do from time to time, this Desmond guy swoons.

What I know about Desmond:

He has so many kids I can't remember how many there are, but it's a lot.

He works for a U.S. based major automotive manufacturer.

He cheers for the wrong Big Ten team.

He and I agree on some issues and disagree on others.

He's one of the few bloggers (uh, wait, he isn't a blogger anymore, just a commenter, but you know what I mean) I know older than I am.

He doesn't like my car.

That's it off the top of my head, everything I know about our beloved Desmond Jones.

Oh, one other thing: he's Catholic.

Oh, and just one more: Molly doesn't shave her legs, and he likes it that way. (That's the closest to a juicy tidbit I have about him.)

He's a thoughtful, gentle person, who loves his wife, and his children; he presents himself as caring a lot about those he considers friends.

That's it, and also only from blog comments.

Its a shame that you never got to read his blog. It really was a gem. I still miss it.

Let's see....

He's father to 8 children.

He's a charismatic Catholic and a convert.

He was adopted.

He and his family have lived in an ecumenical Christian community for years.

He’s very well read and articulate and has a Masters in Engineering (I don’t remember what kind).

He's musical.

He loves his wife very much as she does him and they have a really beautiful marriage.

I could go on, but I’ll close with this:

RS and I have been very blessed to know from first hand experience that he is also a wonderful, supportive friend.

Desmond is the Austin Powers of the blog world - mysterious, exotic, women want him, and men want to be him.

Desmond is the snake to my mongoose. Or the mongoose to my snake. Either way it's bad, I don't know animals.

Covert ops, baby. I could tell you but then he'd have to kill you.

I know nothing about Desmond Jones except what I've learned from his long and informative comments over at a different kind of girl (AKA Raging Mane O' Hotness!)
however, I used to have a commenter midwest_hick who was a HILARIOUSLY funny guy; he took down one blog after his ex objected to something on it and although I found his new blog once a long time ago, I haven't been able to duplicate the miracle since. If anyone knows what his website is, please let me know!

Aw, shucks, Phyllis


If you want, I could send you my old blog archives. . .

But I'd say that my friends have given you a reasonably accurate picture of me, as far as it goes. (Except for that whole snake/mongoose thing; I have NO idea what that was supposed to mean. . .)

And, uh, Therese -

"He loves his wife very much as she does him"

Um. . . there really ought to be another comma in there, oughtn't there?

And I love you too, my dear. . .

Desmond, I have found comments made by you on so many different blogs, it just amazed me. Even random blogs I stumbled on to. I just wanted to see how much the others knew about you and collect it in one place.

And I liked Therese's comment without the extra comma. It's true, isn't it? :)

Therese in Heaven said...

Oh yeah, and he's a grammar policeman too. ;)

You know, maybe I MEANT it that way! lol
