Gaeille V 101: Getting to know me!
*Sigh* Judging from the echoes, chances are no one's going to read this anytime soon. Good or bad? Um, the nonsensical rambling soon to follow has me thinking it's good—great, actually. Cyberspace does not suffer fools gladly, you know. (This cuckoo post would not be complete without a cliché or two.)
All right, so I'm new to blogging—it's pretty obvious from my title and opening remarks—and I thought I'd say hi, introduce myself, in case you do stumble upon this randomness someday, or find yourself reading one of my books and wondering who's the mastermind behind such works of genius (hey, shh, just go with it). ;)
To start the circus off, I'll go ahead and interview myself (I've done stranger things, I assure you). I'll be using the template we (grown kids) loved in high school. We called it a biography something ... can't really remember now. My brain has aged. Anyway, what we'd do is buy counter books, list fun questions in the margins, and then give our friends and classmates to fill in their info. We did this so we'd remember each other when one of us transferred, or we graduated. Sweet, yes? No? Pff!
Soooo, let's get down to business. I'm sure you have other tasks you need to handle instead of playing here with me—like finishing that report your boss asked you for. Or doing the laundry you were supposed to tackle yesterday. Or going to bed. Or completing those edits nearing deadline. Or cooking dinner. Or.... Screw that! Let's play!

Phew! Okay, I'm done. You can get back to work now—but not before you leave a comment sharing at least one fun fact about yourself. C'mon ... please? You read through all this, you might as well say something. You know you want to....
