Nice to meet you!

Greetings and salutations, my friend.  Welcome to this new venture in my writing “career.”

As we get to know each other more you will learn that I love to talk and love to write . . . poems, short stories, e-mails, notes-to-self, grocery lists, messages in greeting cards.  Most of what I write is, in my own mind, brilliant . . . Pulitzer prize winning.  Others may disagree, but who cares!  Give me a pen and an empty notebook and I am good to go.
I am a mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, employee, and arachnophobe.  I am loud-mouthed, short-tempered, short on patience, and just short.
My friends are my world.  I have few close friends, but I hold those people very close to my heart and consider them to be family more than my own family in most instances.  My best friend is a guy whose girlfriend is a complete fucking idiot who I want to punch in the face sometimes.  She is his mistake though, so what’s a girl to do?  Maybe his girlfriend is my lesson in patience.
I am a total sap.  Romantic stories reduce me to tears at the drop of a hat.  It’s actually quite pathetic.  In all honesty though there is a baseball-themed beer commercial on t.v. that has the same effect on me.  Crybaby, you may say.  Nope.  I am just overly moved by the emotion conveyed in a message.  Alright, that’s bullshit.  I am an overly sensitive crybaby.  I always make sure to keep tissues close by.I am one who claims to seek calm and order in my life.  A childhood of chaos and constant change have made me fear change and drama.  Yet, somehow it finds me always.  Maybe I subconsciously seek it out because that is the only way I know how to live.  What do you think?I am a watcher (and judge) of people.  I say that I try not to judge, but who am I kidding.  You are lying to yourself if you say you never judge people.  You know I am right.  I do like to watch people though.  Their actions and lack of actions say more about  person than words ever will.  I learn more about my friends by just watching the way they behave.

Now I am just rambling.  I told you I love to talk.

We shall meet again soon, maybe with a specific topic in mind.

Until we meet again, my friend.
