In 1993 when my friend told me she had a blog I thought it was some kind of rare heart disease.
I felt sad for her and I sent her a get well card.
I now know a blog is a great forum for sharing ideas, keeping in touch, and berating people for not knowing the difference between "their" and "they're".
They also give you a free bag of Jelly Bellies for signing up, so I decided to join.
I now have a cell phone, a washer and dryer, and a blog.
What next, a microwave?
My original intent was to go back in time and publish all that I've been writing since May. Back-date it, keep it chronological, that kind of thing.
But I found that tedious and boring, and the edit feature doesn't allow date changes, so instead I'm going to just post haphazardly and you'll have to keep up.
We'll figure it out as we go.
A lot happens in life.
Most of what I write about lately involves engagements and weddings.
I find the wedding industry ripe with material for writing. It's how comedians must feel having George Bush as president.
Sometimes I write about school and funny kids.
Other posts will explore journeys and travels throughout the world.
I'll have some book reviews and restaurant reviews, and I can always find something to say about Starbucks.
And some of the things I write about will just be amusing to me.
A thanks to my family and friends who had no idea I'd be doing this and to whom I hope will be honored to see themselves included throughout the life of this blog.
And a huge thanks to the guy that accompanies me in so many of these adventures and keeps my writing and my life fresh with fun and entertainment.
I've always enjoyed writing.
It is now my hope now that you will enjoy reading.
