And it is causing me tons of stress. My emotions are swinging wildly, but I'm hanging on. My friends are a Godsend!

|You Are 50% Weird|
Normal enough to know that you're weird...
But too damn weird to do anything about it!
Well, I don't know how accurate this can be with only 4 questions... but what the hey!
|Your Blogging Type is Zany and Charming|
But you're not all fluff - in fact, you're far from it.
Your blog is full of interesting ideas and fun finds.
You're a fascinating person, and it shows through on your blog.

Years before the digital camera, I took a Photography class. You know... where you actually learn about apertures and exposures! Wow... who does THAT anymore? I did my photo essay on a nearby Famous cemetary. The Crepe Myrtles were blooming and the slides were great... AND it earned me an A. I need to find those slides and convert to photos (I even have the attachment for the scanner to scan transparent slides). Maybe then I'll post them here and I'll be able to hold my head high in the company of you TALENTED folks. Maybe...
Here's a photo I took a while back with the digital (I'm still a purist... I don't think the digitals have the magic of 35mm).
I'm back to Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta series.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was terrific! Like book 5 (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), it ended with circumstances I was not particularly happy about... but it IS magic after all... I'm hoping things will turn out in the end. It is a MUST-READ!
If you haven't clicked on the Paperback Swap link on the left, you should. I'm having a great time with it. I've posted more than 250 books, I've already mailed out 12 that have been requested by fellow members. I've ordered 4 books (FREE) and they've all arrived safe and sound. For every book I send out I get a point... books cost 1 point. SO... I get a book for the cost of postage (about $1.42). Now that's a deal! They even make it ultra-simple to mail the books... you just click to print a mailing wrapper with the recipient's mailing address and bar code... so cool!
Thanks to Lady Calliah for telling me about paperback swap!
I bought the Tao XM2Go portable unit from Satellite Radio Superstore... it's so cool.
(I'm such a geek)
I had to work today... so I'm sittin' here listening to XM and guess what! Channel 6 (60s) has "Planet of the Monkees". That's right, all Monkees... ALL DAY! WooHoo! What a blast... HEY, I SAID I was a geek!

One of the station's most popular personalities occasionally reported weather as a secondary assignment. His primary job was host for daily cartoon and science programs aimed toward seven to twelve year-olds. Sailor Bob was a skilled cartoonist who embellished his cloud charts
with assorted characters that displayed smiling or sad faces depending on conditions outdoors. No suitable weather seer was on the staff around the time of transition to WWBT management
I was crazy about this guy. Would have married him in a minute (if I hadn't been seven).
His real name is Bob Griggs. And from what I hear, he's still around. In 1994 he was President of Southside Builders Supply in Richmond and now he's retired.
We had a picture of me sitting on his lap at the State Fair of Virginia... but my mom is even more disorganized than I am... so who knows if I'll ever see it again.
