Septemeber 5, 2011

Okay, I know that I am suppose to be writing here every day...Hmmm I wonder what happened to that. I guess I could make up a bunch of excuses, but the main one...is that every time I think of it, I can't think of anything to write. So here I am determined to write today. I feel like I am lost in la la land with out a reason or purpose. How easy it is to let this danged depression rule me. Or use it for an excuse for not living life. So sitting here scratching my head, I think I will do some rambling.

First ramble of the evening... Omgoodness. David Slade the director just answered my Tweet...how funny..So now I have something to write about...It isn't about David so much, but more like how small the world became because of the internet and social networking.  I have met so many people in this world. We got our first computer in 1996. Since then, I have made friends from almost every continent. I have acquaintances and I have friends. We have never met face to face, but they are my friend. I know about their families, lives, pets and jobs. And this because of a little box that hooks to a modem and sends messages around the world. It has opened up our worlds and made them smaller and smaller.

I look at the people I have met and know that in the past, that would not have happened.. Meeting them seems like an impossible dream. I have spoken to movie stars, authors, people from different countries and the list goes on and on. David Slade for instance...He was working on one of my "Obsession driven favorite Movies" and he would Tweet updates. That in it's self is awesome. And I followed him and still do. Tonight I answered one of his Tweets, and he answered me back. There you go.. Sarah Joy Brown, Carolyn Hennesy, Scott Grimes...just a few of the "Stars" that have answered me. I met a world renowned author on a support group. @ I consider her to be a good friend...even though I can't get her to do a book signing in Oklahoma. Just kidding, Diane.

I have to say that having celebrities on Twitter makes them seem more human and real. You get to see the non celebrity side of them without the cameras and paparazzi. They tweet bits and pieces of their lives just like we do. They take their kids to school, they go out to dinner, they go to the dentist......it is amazing about how plain their lives are. But on the other hand, when some of the newer stars will tweet about what is going on in their lives and it is refreshing to hear the excitement in the tweets. When they are thanking their fans or surprised  at something they are experiencing ...well it  puts a smile on my face to see that they appreciate it all.

Of all the things I could be writing about, this seems a little shallow. However it is just one of those little things that makes me happy. It doesn't take much, does it?
