Perfection? Not At All

Ha, told you when he got laid off I'd be back alot more. I've been trying to use caps instead of just being lazy & typing. I don't like being perfect all the time & I'm quickly deciding I don't want to continue to use caps. I've read that a few people didn't read some blogs because of not using caps or paragraphs. Sometimes because of stupid things like they couldn't spell or use a structured sentence. I don't really care about all that. I have to pay such close attention at work that I don't make many mistakes. But at home it's so much easier to just whack a post out without worrying about all the rules & regulations. I'd rather be able to concentrate on what I'm saying instead of how correct I look.
Speaking of blogs. How many of you are voting on the blog awards? I didn't nominate anyone but I love to vote. Theres several up for awards that I read. Dooce, Geese A Plenty, Ordinary Morning, Jay's Party & Bitchalious to name a few. If you haven't read them you should give them a look. They make me laugh or cry. Depending on whats going on in their lives. Isn't it funny how you feel like you know these people? I know I've written about this before but it just amazes me that so much is possible with the use of nothing more than a little thing called the World Wide Web. This is the best thing to come along since, I don't know, the shower!!!
Computers have just become so much a part of our everyday lives. I'm surprised when I talk to some people on the phone & ask if they have access to a computer & the web. 'No, I wouldn't know how to work it.' How can you not know how to work it? Everyone can seek & peck on a keyboard & all you have to do is go to a library for access to a computer. I wouldn't know how to act without a pc. I use it for every question I ever have now. Don't know how to make a quilt? Search it on the web. Want to know how many times your name shows up in the paper? Google yourself. Got a question about an ailment? Check outWebMD. Just tooo cool. Now, I can be a knowitall with a kick. Cos I really do know it all in a few seconds on the pc.
And blogging, don't get me started on blogging. I think its so great to have someplace that I can store my thoughts without taking the room on my own hard drive. I didn't think they'd ever do anything as cool as this. I look for blogging to take off much bigger real soon. I can just scan from one blog to the next now & never run out of things to read. Of course, I don't have that much time to do that. I Don't!! I've got a life. Really. And I work. Really.
As a matter of fact. Right now I need to get out of here. I still have to take my shower tonight. Work might appreciate it if I come in more than one day this week.
