Oh, I, I, I'm Still Alive.....

Sorry kids. My lame ass really has no excuse. I did for a short time...right before Christmas our home computer putzed out, and my work laptop hadn't arrived yet. Then we went to Indianapolis to see family over the holidays. That was wonderful....nothing like having little kids around to make Christmas feel really special. And I got to bond with some of my family that I hadn't seen for eons. The only thing missing was snow. I should have packed some in my suitcase and taken it with me.

That reminds me...how's this for ludicrous? We checked our one, extremely large bag in, and it was over the 50 pound weight limit by 10 pounds. There was a $50 charge for the extra weight since we had literally no room to stash anything in our carry ons. I asked if they could accept the bag with no charge since we were checking only one bag for two people. The remarkably patient (given the whole blizzard pre-Christmas airport fiasco) United representative explained they could not do that as it was a safety issue for their employees loading baggage. Huh. Funny how they can overlook that safety issue if you hand them an extra fifty bucks, eh? Made me chuckle.

And since we got back home....well, I've just been lame. Ideas I've had for posts have remained in my head, lonely and unappreciated. But now I'm back with a vengeance.

So, if anyone still comes here, I've got a question for ya. I'm thinking of starting a MySpace page. I have a few friends that I could communicate with more if I actually did this. My question is, is it worth it? Will I get stalked by freaks? Is it hard to configure? Inquiring minds want to know.

HA!

Good one Jim. I told her she was too old for MySpace.

Hey!

As for MySpace, I had a page for a few months but eventually I got bored with getting friend requests from freaks and weirdos so I shut it down.

Jim...I hear ya...but so is following celebrity gossip, and I can't seem to stop doing that either.

Chel - that's what I'm afraid of.

If you do go Myspace just realize you are practically obligated to start a band. James can play guitar and the electric hooka. He needs a Myspace account too.

I had one over and yon, but I never used it.

MySpace is lame. I have an account purely to look up accounts that are advertised in Podcasts.

Cat - ooh, the electric hooka! Now that sounds like an instrument that even I could learn to play.

PRT - thanks, good to know. I found your page - didn't look like you got into it much.
