what will I remember from blogging?

Seth & Jon (fellow "contrarians") may well be the only ones I'll remember (11th comment)


P.S. and the felling of talking to myself in the future... (I think that's what really got me about blogging, the idea that I will be reading this 10, 20, 30...? who knows how many years down the road and hearing myself talk... well, more like think... D.

Huge Shaggy Dog: Black Russian terrier

something like this (never seen a dog like this before), leaning up against me all smiles...


P.S. I don't quite know how to react to dogs (didn't grow up with them as pets -- they were outside, to keep the bad people away); it was particularly hard to figure out what to do at one point in the past when a professor's dog -- a mature golden retriever -- was treating *me* as the owner... would always come to loudly great me at the office door, wrap himself around my feet when I would seat in the chair and was very difficult to dissuade from leaving with me when I would leave...
