I'm an only child,'s all about me!

I’m an only child.  And yes, it IS all about me.  No, just kidding (well, maybe).  Truthfully, the nasty rumors you’ve heard about only children are not always true.  We don’t always dwell in the selfish realm of “medom”.  We do share our stuff, and we do enjoy being around other people.  Most of the time.   We are social creatures, dare I say… even friendly?   Just remember to keep the conversation focused on us! 
Now we only kids have a few quirks.  We enjoy being alone more than some.  We don’t require the constant social interaction of another person.  We enjoy reading, watching a movie or surfing the internet without the company of the entire house.  Sometimes we crave solitude.

The LOL disease

It’s time somebody took a stand.  This atrocity has gone on way too long, and someone needs to put a stop to it.  That’s right; I’m talking about the misuse of LOL.  For purposes of this post, we’ll call it LOLing.
Let’s begin with the different variations of LOLing.

If in doubt...reboot

So I’m not a computer guru.  I am not completely illiterate, but suave and debonair, I am not. 
One time, our old computer started misbehaving.  We experienced black/blue screens, ominous error messages and slow reactions.  Being the computer guru I assessed the problem, and determined that we had a virus. (I’m not a computer doctor, but I play one on t.v. – ok,yeah not really).  My diagnosis was verified when little, animated bugs began to eat thru my desktop. I don’t hold an advanced degree in computer technology, but I knew right then and there that it was a virus… and a bad one.  By the way… kudos to the developer of that little gem.  Nice touch with the bugs – don’t let anyone tell you that you are creeeeepppppy!
