OMG

Isn't it funny how once you learn something it becomes integrated into your life? Just a few days ago I became acqainted with the text message phrase "OMG." As luck would have I proceeded to lose $800 in cash that was contained in one of those little bank envelopes along with my driver's license and ATM card.

Confused again

Here I am confused again. I was grazing my blog profile and other pages I am not always sure how I navigate to. None the less, a pop up box asked if I wanted to share my blog post on Face Book.
