What Butt?

So it’s my first post, encouraged by Paige and motivated by Cat (who is making me think I can do stuff).  They both have really cool things online, and I realize that a blog is very basic, and yes people have been doing them for years, but because I am the original barnacle butt I am slow to try something new and terrified of change, this feels like a big deal to me.

You probably already know that a barnacle is that little ocean creature you find stuck to the rocks in the tide pools at the beach, or stuck on the hull of a boat, or even stuck on a whale.  The thing is, we barnacles don’t like to move, we like things how they are, and we get all freaky-deaky when we can’t have our way.  Okay, so that part is just me; I’ve never actually seen a barnacle get freaky, but you know what I mean.

So how much do you have to write to call it a post?

I kind of just want to click publish and see if it works because I usually can’t do computer stuff.  Really.  The computers around me get the “cricketts.”  Does that happen to anyone else?  Any computer that has to deal with me on a regular basis will start chirping after awhile, and act stubborn in other ways too, but the chirping like a crickett is the most mystifying.  It’s been happening since I worked at WMZ/Novatech back in 1987. 

Anyway, the universe is not impressed with me being a barnacle.  Apparently it is time for me to get over it!   So that’s what I think I’ll be writing about.   I hope it’s fun. 

P.S.  I love tidepools!

    When I gave birth to you, I didn’t know I was bringing a tiny barnacle into the world. As it turns out, though, I adore being the mother of something that lives in tidepools — which, by the way, you used to call “tad poles” when I took you to the wonderful ones in Ocean Beach when you were a little girl. Exploring the tad poles and sticking our fingers in the sea anenomes to torture them and make them close was heaven for both of us.

    I love that you’re a blogger, Michelle. Living on the West Coast, I feel too far away from you. Reading your blog, I feel connected. You’ve made me, and all your other fans, very happy. Blog on!

    you are amazing, Shelley, not enough on your plate already, hmmmm?
    Your Kate was texting my Kate when the beach/Ellie incident happened, we knelt down and prayed right away. We are so glad it turned out fine, I would have been a raving lunatic!
    So happy for you, life is good!

    Shelley! How amazing to see a bit of your life on the big screen! I am so enjoying your snippets, and adorable *pictures*. I totally commend you for figuring this thing out, and doing it extremely well, I might add. If you hadn’t said so, I’d have thought you’d been blogging forever.

    (I’m honored to be on your blogroll, too – thanks!)
