If I could have a real-live honest-to-goodness technically savvy blogger-type right here next to my computer desk, here are the questions I would ask him/her:

1. How do I get more personal RAM? I mean, I go through my days experiencing all kinds of blog-worthy experiences, but by the time I get to sit down here they have all been lost in neuro-space, never to be found again. Do you really good bloggers keep scrap paper in your pockets to write things down on?

2. How do I customize my blog without re-formatting the hard drive of my computer? Seriously, that is a major concern for me.

3. How do you learn the technology behind what you do while keeping a steady stream of meals coming from the kitchen and the socks folded?

4. What on earth is an RSS feed? I've read explanations of this before and really, they sound like the assembly instructions for a space shuttle.

5. Where do the missing socks go? Surely someone has a viable answer for this one. I might as well ask the real-live honest-to-goodness technically savvy blogger-type.

And finally, not a question, but a statement. Did you know there's a grammatical error in the US Constitution? Mike, the Political Science Almost-Grad pointed it out to me yesterday. And I'll tell you, if I could meet Thomas Jefferson face-to-face, I'd give him a piece of my mind, because it's (with apostrophe) one of my pet peeves. If you go to this site you can download a high-resolution image of Article V. The last its has an apostrophe, but shouldn't. I don't know about you, sisters, but that just rocks my world. How will I sleep tonight??

Be thankful ~

You are too funny. I am learning as I go, but here's a couple of answers for you. Firstly, the socks go into a wormhole; I've seen them as I'm passing through. Usually I am so amazed at passing through the wormhole myself, that I fail to snatch any of them.

RSS? Do you want to know what it is or how to use it? I would hate to be redundant. I don't really understand the mechanics of it, but I know when you click on the "subscribe" button, it adds your blog content to my google reader! Very nice.

And yes, I have a notepad I carry at work for remembering the folks I wait on, and a huge whiteboard in my dining room that I call "The Brain" with blog ideas and what I need to grab at the store.

Now I've written you a book in your comments. Enjoy.
