An Intromercial

As I sit behind and watch my tech savvy husband build my page at light speed, clicking on hieroglyphics and jumbling symbols together with the voodoo graphic magic, I find myself in strict contrast jotting down my first blog entry with a smencil(smelly pencil) and paper. Am I really into 2 double ought 8 armed only with the computer skills of a fourth grader? Well, yes it looks that way, but I have come a long way baby Jane. Ta-rust me!

I have already proclaimed this year to be my " Year of Intelligence!" And what better way to kick it off than to force myself to learn the ins and outs of one of my favorite time passers, the Bloggy world! I'm sure to be cutting and pasting with the most amateur of you in a matter of years. But wait, with my new "Year of Intelligence" ultra starter kit, I'll not only gain these new blogitudes, but I'll also receive the "Don't be so hard on yourself, kid" self esteem booster pack if I start my blog today!! Gee, this is really a once in a lifetime experience that I simply can't pass up. :D DING!

Of course, beyond being simply sparkly with smarties, I want to be able to communicate with all of my friends, whether pretend or real, in this venue. I just LOVE taking in peoples everyday lives and gleaning new insights from them. It helps me to process my own mind and figure out how all things work together or perhaps just to understand why they don't.

So, whether I learn a thing or two or just keep bugging you guys on your blogs, at least I'll have a home to come back to, a final resting place for all of my lengthy run-on sentences. And now without further ado...Welcome to my little widget in the world!

I didn't realize I jumped the gun on your intro entry. Here's another "welcome to the neib!"
Smencil?! Oh yeah, we're in for a great ride!
