I took a public speaking class in college, and a writing class, in which I learned the best and most interesting way to start a speech or story. A few ideas were: starting it with (1) a quote, (2) a joke, (3) dialogue, or (4) a definition. I, obviously, started it with a quote. But now that I'm reading my blog, I realize that it doesn't change how intriguing it is. Oh well. Here goes - the first entry:
I've never been a natural born leader. I either do my own thing (not getting many followers) or "follow the crowd." Since more often than not, I "followed the crowd," I thought it only right to stick with my M.O. and create a Blog like everyone else I know. I don't have a lot of time to blog, but I'll update it when something significant happens (or when I get bored, or when I just feel like it) so that people who know me (or don't know me) can see what's going on in my dull (or not so dull) life (I use a lot of parentheses, don't I?).
So- for the first blog, here's a brief description of me.
(In this picture, I'm not the gorilla, contrary to what you may be thinking. I'm in the red/black shirt.)
Likes: My daughter, my husband...90% of the time, the beach, yellow, dancing for no reason at all, the outdoors, outdoor activities (hiking, swimming, running, biking, boarding, etc.), Antique Roadshow, being goofy with friends/family, chocolate, ice cream, the mall (when I have money), money, pretty much anything worth liking.
Dislikes: Mushrooms, Fish (I like looking at them- just not eating them), tomatoes, snobby people, mosquitoes, rapists, computer viruses.
Favorite place to vacation: Somewhere warm with a good beach. Or anywhere is really good if you go with someone fun (i.e. my best friend Ashlee)
Job: Legal Secretary and a Mother (and yes, it's a job, for those of you who might argue with me)
What I'm listening to right now: My 3 year old daughter singing all over the house about how she's "ice skating" with her toys, and "Robin Hood" in the background
Ok, so there's the brief description, or something, of me. Have questions? Just ask. Although I can't promise I can answer all of them. One of my old Junior High teachers had a sign displaying this quote: "There are no dumb questions - only dumb answers."
