Twitter & Other Random Thoughts...

Yesterday I finally joined the Twitter network, or whatever you wanna call it. I was trying to hold out on it all, until I saw that my Dad and my Mom both had Twitter accounts. Well, I'm not sure I like Twitter much. I don't think that I have alot of friends on Twitter yet, so I suppose that I'll keep it for a while. I remember that when I first joined Facebook, I hated it. It took me a while to get used to it and figure things out. Now, I rarely use my Myspace, the "social networking site" that got all of this craziness started! Oh well, if you have a Twitter...look me up by clicking here & then stalk me, or follow me...which ever you prefer.

Which brings me to my next point. Americans are all about having their privacy, yet we join these "social networking sites" and allow the whole world to come into our own little world. We are strange people, us Americans.

Anyway...moving on to the South Carolina weather patterns. For years local forecasters have said we are in a drought. I don't understand this at all. For the past three days it has done nothing but rain, and rain, and rain! In fact, for the past six months there has been more rain than sun. Still, somehow...we are "so and so inches" under the normal rainfall we are supposed to have. What is normal? I don't think anyone knows what normal is. We are not in drought. I have a river in my front yard to prove it!

Random question: What keeps the windshield wipers from flying off of their hinges when they are wiping at full speed? This has always baffled me.

Yes, to be true!

Have you ever thought of becoming a jouralist?

I actually wrote my career paper in the eleventh grade on journalism. My Mom tells me all of the time that I should write a book though. I've started many books, but haven't finished them.
