In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Dear Gina:

I know we've never met, and I'm sure you really get into the Facebook social networking stuff, but I don't want to hookup with you. I hope you don't take this personally, and by no means do I want you to think I'm trying to embarass you on a public blog, but this really needs to stop. I'm tired of clicking delete in my spam file. It's one of those time things: you're wasting my time and I find such things irritating and rude.




  1. OK, I'll bite.

    I simply HAVE to ask.

    Is Gina just one of those robo-anon posts that automatically go to spam or..

    do you have a gen - u - wine online stalker?

    There are some strange people out here in virtual land. Ran into a few myself.

    Seriously deranged sometimes.

    Just in case you're wondering, I'm not one of them.

    But I was strangely attracted to your spreadsheet post, mainly because I'm an addict and Excel is my drug.

    Sick. I know. I'd rather be a dancer, but I can barely manage to walk and chew gum at the same time. And nothing about dancing actually does interest me.

  2. Spam in my email. Gina is only one. I won't click the link, but they want me to believe that Gina is on Facebook and wants to hook up, which would be hard to believe, since I don't do facebook.

    I once read an article about Excel, which explained how the macro language is a very powerful programming language. It intriqued me, so I tooled around and tried to write some elaborate macros to create shortcuts and remove the idiot factor from spreadsheets I use. Unfortunately, I've never had the time to finish any, and since time has passed, I'd have to start all over again. Maybe I'll win the lottery and have all the time I need to pursue my interests.

  3. So sad there are warped people out there. Not your Gina friend, us truly nerdy people who get wrapped up in figuring out things like Excel.

    I don't use it much for macros anymore, people think you're a genius if you just create a pivot table. The trick is to not give it back to them for 2 days even though it only takes 2 minutes to complete.
