Socks — Love ’em. Hate ’em. Hard to live without ’em.

Anyone that knows me, knows I love socks. I have socks for work. I have socks for home. I have fav socks for going out. I have lucky socks. I have warm, fuzzy socks. I have so many socks, that when I moved I put some socks into storage because at my new place I wouldn’t have the same dresser as before and therefore considerably less space for socks. <read here: I used to have a whole drawer devoted to socks>

There are however things I hate about socks:

1. Wet socks. I cannot tell you how yukky I feel when I have damp socks or socks with a small wet spot. EWW!!!

2. Socks that fall down.

3. Socks that get holes in the toes after just a few wears.

4. Men that wear white sport socks with dress shoes.

Today it was “socks that fall down” day. <sigh>

Real People

Are the people in our dreams real?

I don’t mean are they real people that we will meet one day. And I don’t mean that they are real people sharing my dream with me, at the same time.

What I wonder is…are these real people, the images of which appear in my dream. Perhaps it’s someone I saw on the street but didn’t really notice. Or maybe it’s someone I’ve met but don’t remember. Real – making a guest appearance in my dream!

Why bother

So I mentioned to a few folks that I started a blog and most asked “why?”

So I explained to them that this is a place to jote down my thoughts and ideas, sorta like a living diary.

That got me thinking about how technology has changed the way in which we record history…or in most cases how we don’t – at least not in the traditional sense. How will this generation (and the next) be regarded by history? Have we left enough behind so that future humans will have a true sense of what it was like to live in the 20th and 21st centuries?

Then I started thinking about TV & Movies. Will future generations think this is how we actually lived? How will they know the difference between what we call reality and what we call fiction. Haha…reality tv!

Hello world!

“Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!”

What an auspicious opening to my new blog.

Like any new blog I’m not sure what I’m going to do here. I guess it will develop over time…if I keep it moving along. What I’d like to do is share my thoughts and ideas with the “world”. I’ve done the Facebook thing; I’ve stayed away from the Twitter; but I find myself needing a broader canvas to work on. I wanted a place to ramble, share, bitch, moan, cheer, whatever whim takes me.
