Rule 1) List three reasons for your blogging.
Rule 2) List the rules.
Rule 3) Tag three others with the thread.
a) I wanted to practice writing, to keep my hand in, and had begun to feel the need to go on (and on and on) in the comments on OP's blogs, which may have become an imposition, if it wasn't already. The solution was obvious; git yer own durned blog, so I did.
b) I feel even more a part of the kewl kidz group; y'all know who you are. I am bemused by the power of these virtual friendships to become real and lasting, even when we meet "in de flesh."
c)It's easier to be both immediate and more detached simultaneously, which in some cases I find to be a real advantage. In person, I tend to get excited and blurt things out without thinking them through; sometimes that bites my tush.
OK, that's one and two. As to three, play if ya wanna: don't feel ya gotta.
