Getting Started

Just for the record...I do not like the word 'Blog.' Never have. What is that? I know it's very old-personish for me to dislike these new terms that appear all the time, attached to the techno surge we're all living in. However, my friend Landee has the FUNNIEST blog I've ever seen. So, here I am, trying to create my own.

Blog. How did they come up with that one? Log...yes. I can see that. Blob? Blah? Blah-log? Whatever. Log isn't a good word sometimes. Neither is blob. You see what I mean? I just don't like that word. I don't like the word Loiter, either. Do I even have to go into that one? Say it ten times and tell me what you think. I recently said something on my FB about the candy Nik-L-Nip. What the...? Why does that make me feel like someone is pulling a dirty word over on me and getting away with it?

I'm beginning to feel like I'm in way over my head. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. Welcome. Hope I can think of some interesting things to write about.

Oh. My. Gosh. A dream come true over here!!! I'm so glad Facebook broke you in a little and now you have a full-fledged blog kickin over here! From what I understand.... they used to be called "web logs." And then it was shortened to blog. I actually don't mind the word.... words I do hate? Pianist. Uvula. Condiments. Dick Butkis.

Try taking microbiology and saying cocci and coccus over and over. I hate those words! That's why people refer to it as "strep" and not "streptococci". Geez.
