I haven't anything to say.

Really.

The only reason I got this ID was so I could respond to other people's blogs on a very occasional basis.

Want to know what I'm thinking? Try spending a little time with me in real life. Virtual relationships are no relationships at all.

Log off and come on over.

I’m still not saying anything, but I do seem to be storing a bit, and my memory is notoriously spotty. I also don’t find the Search feature useful in jogging my memory, only in finding what I remember. So I'm going to add an index of sorts here at the beginning, which appears at the end. (I suppose that this is a first being last sort of thing.)
