It should come as absolutely no surprise that I am what polite people call "technologically challenged." I am what my brothers call "She Who Must Never Touch Anything With A Power Cord Or More Than One Button." My brothers are right, sad to say. The button thing even applies to clothing as I have on more than one occasion returned to the house only to discover my shirt has been buttoned incorrectly all day.
My brothers are technology wizards. My older brother spends his days doing heaven and Bill Gates only know what for Microsoft. (Everytime the computer shows the error message and inquires politely whether or not to send a message to Microsoft to inform them of my distress I ALWAYS say yes. Just my way of letting Tyler know I'm still out here.) My other brothers are also well-versed in computer knowledge. They frequently sit and discuss computers in some foreign language I gave up trying to understand years ago. I'm not quite sure how I ended up in this family, the only foreigner in their computer-filled world. One day I will learn that I was adopted and suddenly my entire world will make sense. Until then, however, I just remind myself that we are all unique and we each have our own talents. For example, I know every word to the "Beverly Hillbillies" theme song. (I also know the words to "The Brady Bunch" and "Gilligan's Island" but my brothers may read this and I don't want them to feel intimidated by my greatness, so I won't mention my expertise in its entirety.)
In the blog world, however, I'm finding that having a few clues to finding my way around would be helpful. For example, I finally got links to my favorite blogs listed. See? Over there in the sidebar? Under the great big word "LINKS"? (I'm also working on changing that to something different, but let's take one thing at a time, okay?) Yep. I got them listed all right. The links won't actually take you anywhere of course. But I'm working on it. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime feel free to join me in a little song! Everybody sing! "Come listen to the story of a man named 'Jed'..."
