Welcome to the 21st Century

I'll admit it. I'm a bit of an enigma. My appreciation for all things modern greatly contradicts my fierce passion for the past. A plasma TV in a dark cherry, English 17th century hutch would be my idea of style. That said, my checking account doesn't allow me to march into the future at quite the same pace as the calendar. My apartment is still very 1970s in the way of creature comforts: no dishwasher, no cable, no computer, not even a land line, although that may actually be a move that's ahead of my time.

With all those things I'm missing out on (am I really missing out?) this blog makes for my biggest leap into the future.

I really haven't looked at many blogs, although I am learning they are all the rage among the techie set. But from a casual perusal I gather they're the modern way of maintaining a journal. That's kind of scary territory... putting all your thoughts out there for the globe to see. For now I'll stick to pretty benign topics, nothing truly introspective or revealing.
