Welcome Back Blues

I haven't been writing much since I've been in Minneapolis. I think I've been spending all of my blog time adjusting--to being a family again (which is fun, but work nonetheless), to being in the Twin Cities, and to gearing up for school. I wasn't ready for it to start yesterday, but start it did nonetheless. I'll try to get back into a routine of blogging because I really enjoy it.

Hi, Laurene --

I've always enjoyed your writing, no matter whether it's expression of joy, or thoughtful reflection, or even whining -- you are a great writer! Please keep writing!

I had a reletively tough time getting into my life here when I first arrived in the twin cities, too -- but later on I've found that life CAN be a lot more enjoyable than I expected :)
I'm sure you'll find excitement and enjoyment here, though they may be different from what you had in Portland.

Hope you'll have better luck with things here in MN than you had during the past year.

Thank you thank you thanks for including accessibility in your top 10, especially within a way that points up the advantages to other user groups (such as mobile device users) when sites are accessibly designed. Wonderful.

I'm so used to using Postal that when it becomes outdated or bugged I feel totally put-out in my laziness haha. Haven't tried TSM. I haven't actually been playing much. I tend to have bored at the end of expansions. I have SWTOR, D3 Beta and MoP Beta to keep me amused even though I wait though lol.

of course like your web site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.

As if cyber bullying wasn't bad enough already. Soon we're going to receive towards the stage where individuals will likely be far too scared to publish on facebook because with the fear from the backlash they'll get from this ridiculous and disgusting button.

When I first saw this title Winter in the Cities: Welcome Back Blues on google I just whent and bookmark it. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.
