Tee hee... that made me think of a skit we did in 8th grade, for the talent show. There were five or six of us, and we did a little set of three or four skits. We placed, but sadly I can't remember where. Oh well. It was funny. The good old days.
Anyway. That is not the point. The point is this: I enjoy writing this blog. I like being able to share my thoughts with all the random people who might come by to read them. I like getting to talk about silly stuff (like my celebrity crush, although I don't find that silly at all, ha) and serious stuff (like how I'm afraid I'm going to not get done with this thesis and will have wasted four years and many, many, MANY thousands of dollars). I started it to keep in touch with my friends and family, because I have become a total slacker at writing emails and letters, or even making phone calls. But it's been ever cooler that people I don't know in person stop by, and I get to know even more folks that way. I love that about this.
So this isn't really a test, per se, but I have been curious about who all does pop by and read this. Even if it's only occasionally. So, you there. Yes, you, the one reading this right now... please, please, PLEASE take two seconds to leave me a comment. Just so I know you were here, and I can get a rough idea of who is coming 'round. Because I'm curious like that. Enquiring Minds Want To Know, after all. You don't have to post a comment every single time you come by, I'm not gonna be a comment nazi. (I've been wondering lately, is that now an insensitive phrase? Like being a 'indian giver', or 'what a gyp', or any of those other common phrases that are now seen as slurs? An ideological slur? What do you think? Sorry, I digress.)
I think I can probably speak for most blog posters, and I know I speak for myself, when I say: we love comments. That's a big part of what makes this worth doing, to hear back from people, to get their opinions and thoughts, to turn this into a conversation more than just a soapbox. So please, do comment today and let me know you came by, and think about commenting occasionally when something I say sparks a thought. Any thought. Even if it's just to tell me I'm a dork. I am okay with that.
And thank you to those of you who do comment regularly: Jen, and Maggie, and Barb, and Jennifer, and Mrs.4444, and Masimba sometimes. I really, really, really do appreciate it!
