    Dipping my toe in ...

    Oh wait, that is probably not a good thing to do in a water cooler. Sorry folks. As you can see, I am a writer who has a penchant for putting her foot in her mouth and other places it does not belong.

    Anyway, bear with me, I am really not such a scatterbrain as I may sometimes appear.

    Looking forward to finding my way around.

    Get your toe out of that water! Well actually, it kinda doubles for a fish tank, so it's probably best to stay away from it all together.

    Cool Hi! *wave*

    I'm new to this corner of the net as well... nice to see I'm not alone.

    Thanks and hi to everyone else who welcomed me. So nice of you. I am sure I will begin to put faces to names soon.

    Hmm. Faceless internet -- so maybe I won't put names to faces, but I am looking forward to getting to know people.
