Anybody is welcome to read this, but this post is primarily for my DN fans & friends.


Hi Everybody...

I\'ve been meeting great people ever since I got started on DN. I\'m meeting more & more & more... I\'m starting to forget whose birthday is when, and what country or state some people are from... and sometimes whose wallpapers I commented on and whose site I keep forgetting to visit! :P As I mentioned to somebody a couple of days ago, one of these days I\'ll probably end up making somebody from Spain a Happy Birthday Wallpaper with an American theme, and I\'ll post it on the profile of somebody from India...:P

On top of all that, my "offline life" is getting a busier. I\'ve had to cut my computer time down. I\'ve been checking my DN mail regularly, but I don\'t always have time to answer it right away. I\'m spending chunks of time on DN every other day instead of every day like I used too.

I want to make the best use of the DN time that I do have. Therefore, I am beginning to get my fan/friends list in better order. I want to see the wallpapers people are creating on a regular basis, instead of hop,skip, & Oops I forgot to look! Also I want to get your birthdays organized calendar order style.

I love sending birthday greetings to everybody, I\'m sure a lot of us do...So I will be asking some of you more shy DN members if you will let me know when your birthdays are...but NOT the year! The year isn\'t important on DN. All of us are eternally young--- or if we do admit to being older, we are filled with wisdom!

(To those of you who have no hang ups about telling your age, I salute you. I\'m more the type of person who likes to say that I am 39, just like Jack Benny.)

In Summary,

1. I have less time to spend on DN than I used to. I\'m determined to keep connecting with everybody, anyway!

2. If your birthday is not on your profile I\'ll be asking you for it, no year necessary, so I can send some joy in your direction on your special day. If you really would rather not share it, you will leave me in Wonderland, just like Alice. You just might be getting a Merry UnBirthday Card from me instead of a Birthday Card. lol

If you notice or have noticed that I\'m answering your profile and wallpaper comments more slowly, now you know why. Don\'t worry about me, and please be patient with me. I\'ll do my best to get back to you eventually.

One thing for certain---It will be easier for me to connect with you all more quickly once my Construction Phase is over! Can anybody lend me a hard hat? :D

PS. Does anybody out there know why I get weird slash marks before each apostrophe in all of my posts? Just wondering...

PPS. While I am trying to get things like birthdays straightened out on DN, I have just realized that I missed one of my sister\'s birthdays, and I am 2 days late on the other. It looks like I need all of the help getting organized that I can get! Wish me Luck..... :P

Dear Elaine,Seems to me that everyone who write\'s Journal Entries get the slashes in front of the apostrophe. Sorry I am unable to solve your problem, it seems like it must be a DN foible! The way to get round it is to find an alternative way of expres...   Read More >>
