I'll never get enough of old school music videos. ;)
When Parker Pen marketed a Ball-point pen in Mexico, it's ads were supposed to read "It won't leak in your pocket and embarass you." The marketing company thought that the word embarazar ( to impregnate) meant to embarass. Soooooo... the ad read "It won't leak in your pocket and make you pregnant."
That's why I originally made this journal, actually. I was a single Mom and at that time my health wasn't great, and I didn't have a job because I was staying home with my kid. I have some wonderful friends, but I didn't get to see them nearly as often as I would have liked because of being a stay at home Mom and all that jazz.. and I needed a little escape for when he was asleep, and hence randomposting was born. :) I'm So glad I made it.
My first attempt at journaling was back in the days of pens, Big Chief tablets, then 'college ruled' three-hole paper, then pounding on an Underwood typewriter late nights in my parents' attic. I'm talking teens, into early twenties. I decided I wanted SOMEbody to talk to, and as I was too shy to approach anyBODY, I decided on writing letters to a recipient I named Never-Met, and hence, since my thirites, and especially since my first Mac, all the way to here, in my fifities, here on my laptop, here in this entry, everette was and is born. :) So, yes, I'm a single Mom, my children, two girl cats Samantha and Tina, everette on my lap my constant companion, and I'm a spouse, fourteen years, now, startled every day, she ever met me.
