Gotta start somewhere

Well, this is my very first blog.  I have my daughter's permission to create a LiveJournal, so long as I don't "friend" her.  Silly me.  I didn't know friend was a verb.  I just gave myself away, didn't I?  Totally not with it.  You could say I live in a fantasy world, but then I write fantasy so it's not surprising.

I do have friends, though, and once I find my web feet (but hopefully not webbed feet!), I hope to friend them in the LJ sense.  For now I will hunker down and observe the brave new e-world.  I am hoping to embrace the new and still celebrate the old.  I love books, and so far the web seems more like a friend to books than an enemy.  I love that when I buy a book on Amazon.com, it suggests other books I might like.  Although I do wish they would install a button that says "I am buying this as a gift for my nephew.  Please don't suggest any similar music or books again because I won't want them."  I would sure as heck click that button at Christmas time when I do my online shopping.

But then there is spam.  I write fantasy, so I like to envision a world with e-mail but no spam.  Still a dream as yet...

That's all for now.  Wouldn't want to over do it on my first time.
