The Hairy Man Without A Plan
Hello?...God?...It's me Gerry. Are you listening? I just joined this thing called Live Journal and it... Oh, you've heard of it? That bad, huh? Seventh ring of hell? Lakes of fire? Damned souls? Oh... well it sounds like quite a party! Thanks for the assist there Mr. Deity! I'll be talking at you soon!!!
Really... it is me Gerry. As you might have read in my bio, I didn't join LJ for all of the sin and evil ways out there (though they are quite enticing!!!). I joined because of my girlfriend and her friends. They kinda sucked me in (oh my!) and here I am.
So I was wondering what to put into my first post here. I always want to make a good first impression, so I had to think long and hard (oh my, again!) about it. My conclusion... I don't know. I don't want to worry about making witty stories and phrases. I just want to write about what's happening with me. I know all of you are probably saying "well...DUH!!!" but I really had to find this out on my own... after a night of good sleep with Sue!!! (Yes...sleep).
Today we wander south to help a friend out with his storage locker situation. He has to move all of his things out temporarily, so he decided to sort and consolidate at the same time as moving and kill three birds with one stone. I've only met him once, but he didn't act rude to me or curse my name, so I'm game to assist. He has been friends with Sue for a while, and that is good enough reason for me!
I'm amazed at all of he friends Sue has acquired though fandom and filk and cons. I've been introduced to dozens (maybe a hundred?) new people over the last year. Some of them close, others just friends, still others just occasional acquaintances. But practically all of them nice to me, with smiles and stories and laughs. I'm just amazed.
Well, for a first try, four paragraphs aren't too bad! There's no rain, and it's not supposed to get over a hundred today, so I don't think I'll melt. I'll update my life in a day or so. Bye!!!
