It's Friday Five Time!

See, I remembered. Off to a good start. Here's the Friday Five:

1. How much time do you spend online each day?
Um, a lot. Difficult to quantify. Technically, my computer is always online, there's just certain times when I'm not sitting in front of it. And then there's the times when I'm doing something else, like working on my novel, and have my email program running in the background just in case someone sends me an important message that needs to be read right away. Is that counted as online?

2. What is your browser homepage set to?
My homepage is right here. Don't bother clicking the link, my homepage is my blog. I like to scan to see if people have left comments for me. I also like to re-read my entries sometimes because I think that I'm really hilarious and I find myself entertaining.

3. Do you use any instant messaging programs? If so, which one(s)?
Nope. When I was at IBM I used the Lotus IM program Sametime. It sucked up a lot of work time so I had to curtail my usage. Now I just haven't gotten around to downloading an IM program. I figure people who want to chat can pick up the phone and call me.

4. Where was your first webpage located?
The first webpage I ever did was a page for the Southwest Missouri State University English Department, Children's Literature program. It was a page cataloging all of the Children's Lit resources (read: the library) and where to find them. It had a spinning logo. Not pretty. My first personal page was when I first moved to the bay area. I had a page up on Angelfire, the free web page people. It's probably still there, though I've long ago lost the link. Kevin might have it though.

5. How long have you had your current website?
Let's see, I don't know exactly. Again, Kevin might know. I guesstimate that it went up Dec. 2000--Jan. 2001 ish. The actual wedding took place on November 24, 2001. We've been considering moving to another home on the web, something like "" or "" but haven't gotten around to it yet. Don't worry, if/when we make the move there will be plenty of warning and automatic forward links.

And there's my first Friday Five. Ta Daaaa!

Can you post a poem or two for old times sake? maybe one about dust - that was personal favorite of mine! :-)

Yeah, yeah, make fun of the Dust poem. YOU try writing 100 lines of poetry a week and see what you come up with.
