The Computer-Illiterate tries out a blog.

Ohhh, look at me all blogging up in here. And I did Twitter today too. I think I'm advancing in the world. Ah, but just wait, a week from now I'll completely forget how to operate any of my social networking thingy's online as I will somehow have trouble turning on the computer. Believe me, it has happened.

So yeah...this will just be a blog of total randomness, as those kinds are most often are my favorites. A blog in which to amuse the few friends who are bored at work sometimes(ahem....Jen), such as I can be sitting at a desk all day. I want to write about things I'm currently acting in (yes I'm one of those people), plays I've seen, plays I've read, movies I've seen and books I've read. Movies I see frequently so there will be a lot of talk about that...though you may want to skip those pieces as I am entertained by even the worst films. Books I don't read very often, but plan on dedicating myself to the task of reading all the books currently in my possession this summer. I have over 250 books now that I haven't read. Um, you could say I have a bit of an obsession with buying books. I mean you can't blame me, I've worked at 3 different bookstores over the last 5 years, which has slowly turned me into a "I must own it" kind of person instead of the active library user I use to be.

Also, I'm a bit obsessed with Britain. I lived in London for a year during my Junior year at University and now I just want to move back and live there. I'm hoping someday to get to graduate school over there...hopefully for Acting...but let's not get into that topic now. Just know I tend to lament quite often about England and the English.

Final note....I promise....I will try to read over things before I post. Just a warning, I am not stellar at spelling or grammar, even though I did graduate with a B.A. in English....though my thoughts on that quite follow the song from Avenue Q "What do you do with a B.A. in English...it sucks to be me." If you notice something horrendous, feel free to point it out....unless you're my brother in Philly, then no, you are not allowed to constantly point stuff out. You're annoying, smarty pants, now go away. Also, if anyone knows an easy way to remember the difference between "than" and "then", share, please. I always mix those two up.

That is all, world. I must get back to very important filing.


  1. Haha, so funny you mentioned "than" and "then" because you used the wrong one in the previous sentence. That's the only reason I'm mentioning it, swear.

    Than is for comparisons. "That drink is stronger than hers."
    Then is for cause and effect-type stuff. "f you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all."

    And please post some british food recipes! Then I can learn to cook it and not criticize it. (Also a good example of "then" v. "than").

  2. Haha, thanks for that Tregg! I will try and remember that and I am so going back and editing now ;) Or is that not kosher in the blog world? Hmmm...it's all so shiny and new. Oh and there will be British recipes added, just you wait, and I'll make the finished product all pretty and yummy looking just for you!
