Anti Social

I don't like my last post.

I don't like it at all.

It shows my insecurities -- about clothes/style, about my baby compared to others, etc. etc.

But I'll leave it up there anyway -- there is a cute baby pic on there after all.

My job's email switched to gmail around the time I came back from maternity leave, and a little bit later they turned on gchat. Ugh.

There is a way to look at email and sign out of chat, so I do that mostly if I'm looking at email online. It isn't like a lot of people are messaging me or dying to talk to me. It's just that it never fails that I'll be in the middle of something and whammo! A drawn out IM session -- about work or otherwise.

I'm almost never signed into chat on my own gmail, and I think I've had one Facebook chat conversation. And that was accidental -- somehow settings got reset and I wasn't invisible on that chat anymore.

I think it's indicative of my anti-social behavior? Except online chat is sort of anti-social ... in that you're not ACTUALLY talking to the person.

I used to love AOL Instant Messenger. In fact, I think I have some chats saved on my eMachine's hard drive (its screen eventually gave out and I didn't know nothing about backing up back then!).

AND YET, I love to chat with my sister when we webcam. Sometimes I can type things better than our connection will allow by voice. I'm a fast typist too.

Totally insignificant, I know. But it's been on my mind.

You want to read how many books?
or
CHEESE! (I imagine we'll have many more photos with this face as she learns to pose)
