welcome to the revolution




Although I haven't been hiding in the caves of Afghanistan or moonlighting as a Sherpa on Everest somehow I managed to completely miss out on that technological breakthrough known as IMing. That's instant messaging to all you folks who were like me...yesterday. Today is a new day and I am a novice no longer. Thanks to Keith who hooked me up last night I have entered the new millennium. I know, I know to the facebook crowd this whole post must seem positively provincial but it's true. I'm old yo and these days I feel like my mom probably felt years ago when she was afraid of using her ATM card. It gets harder to keep up no matter how badly you want to. It's odd that while my job requires a significant amount of tech savvy, I have yet to truly broaden my horizons. I haven't given into the iphone and sorry facebook but I'm still holding out. As for twitter...man I tried, but a girl can only come up with so many random but somewhat applicable haiku. I'm sure Mark Zuckerberg doesn't miss me. So in conclusion, the moral of this story is...

•always be willing to learn new things unless they involve ninja stars or wizards•

On another note but equally important...if you are in the neighborhood, stop by the Junction. My cousin has a booth there so if you can show her some love that would be swell. Mention my name and you will get...absolutely nothing. She's lovely though and will be more than happy to sell you something marvelous.

Ciao

I hadn't heard about this either! But I do love facebook ;) And I'm geting into twitter more and more, you should try it more, it's fun, but I just think some people take it to the extreme, they update every couple of hours! How can they live their normal lifes!!!??

Yeah, I finally gave into the Facebook thing just to bug my kids. I am now friends with all their friends which bugs the sh*t out of them. Hey what are parents for?
It is a little daunting to have yet another medium to keep updated. I mean really my life isn't THAT interesting.
Like you, I could not keep up with the random Twitter posts. Maybe it's because I don't have an iPhone. Hmmm....
Good luck with the IMing. My 14yr old can type about 120 WPM because of it, so if nothing else...

yeah, yeah I know...eventually I will have to submit to facebooking and twittering...but I can barely handle blogging so God help me if I add something else...I will start following your twitter Dariela and maybe I'll get reinspired.
