Remember my question for 2010? “Who would I be, if I weren’t who I am?”

I’m about to test that concept. Rather than going to MDSW in search of fiber, tools, or that perfect skein, I am attending MDSW with an emphasis on socializing.
This will be a reach for me as I am actually quite shy. Once I know/warm up to you, my caustic viewpoint and dry humor show through…before that…”reserved” or “aloof” might seem better descriptors.

So Monday will either find me eating my way out of a “I can’t believe I said something so stupid” frenzy, or moderating more groups on Rav. Actually Rav is why this came about, hanging out with a group of (mostly)women, typing messages that would make my 6th grade English teacher cringe in terms of spelling and syntax – and having a blast.

Wish me luck. This social growth thing is just as painful as it was in High School.

You are a very intellegent, kind, thoughtful, funny and pleasant person. Try to remember that more often and even you will think so. ;)

You are a very likeable person - and I can't wait to meet you in person sometime. I think it is so brave that you are stepping out of your comfort zone to meet people. When I was a little girl, I was a shy bookworm and a social outcast at school, but I grew out of it and can't believe I'm now in marketing and am fairly outgoing. It's an acquired thing for many of us.
