For over a year and a half I've been unable to work due to a disability, and therefore have been without any income. It sure has been tough. Besides going to the NEAF (Northeastern Astronomy Forum) with my friend (thank goodness for her that she was able to take me), I'm kind-of sort-of living a reclusive life, a side effect, I believe, of living with my particular disability. I haven't even had my hair touched up. I could live fine without a lot of things, but I do like to keep up with my red hair. It just makes me feel a little better…on the inside. My near constant excruciating back pain can be showing through my eyes, but for some reason if my hair is done… the overall persona looks great--even if only in my eyes and no one else's. This is something that I do for myself.
So, my summer has been mainly spent keeping homebound, watching movies, TV shows, and reading books and magazines. Twitter has been a FABULOUS PLUS! Besides the several Smallville fans that I have met/chatted with on there, this summer I've met another friend (as honest & real as they come). That friend is @Tommytrc . I had started a Formspring.me (http://www.formspring.me/typertist) account, and I was immediately hooked to it. I asked Tommy a lot of questions (I'm sure he can attest to this!) and he answered nearly all of them. What a great sport! Along with meeting/chatting with Tommy online, I've also met (meaning online) many other wonderful people such as: @mmangen @tvorse @OhDaddy @WebGrrrrl @2sonsup @AmyStark @LisaRedShoesPR @inklesstales @JessDennis @VAinParadise
Oh, and more which are now following: @JeffLast @alisonjns @PatrickCasey
@saraljeffers @nikkivoelzke @AFiebig @ShadowHart , etc.
Last but not least, worthy of particular note, is @harrisonloveall … An awesome guy to follow!
