Actually, sorry, my perversions are entirely of the non-communicable kind. You can't have them!
That phrase is from a Dream Theater song, and just occurred to me a couple of hours ago, while reading about a flapjackgina. Yes, you read that right. Blame it on the internet and comment threads. Or thank it for them (some of them, anyway) when it leads to a good laugh.
The phrase got stuck in my head and demanded to be used as a blog title, and it got its way. And now I'm curious how many people might have clicked on this blog only because of that title. Please do chime in, it's worth a spark point, if nothing else.
I did come up with an analogy for it, though you'll have to decide how apt. In this analogy, exercise is the happy disease, the wish for which spreads, ever contagious, amongst users of this site. Really, it's the model the website is built on, us egging each other on, challenging, motivating, et cetera. When we find that person or people that motivate us, their actions and words are, indeed, infectious, and if you'll excuse the extreme stretching of the analogy, do pervert us away from that previous sedentary or otherwise detrimental lifestyle.
So, yeah, sparkpeople as a site, or as individuals, are infectiously perverted. And that's a good thing in my book, not least for the barely suppressed smirk on my face as I typed out this entry.
