When I was flipping my 2nd house on Barkley, Mattie was 6.
One day I let her help me by pulling off all the blue tape around the room after I had painted it.
She came to me later in the day and showed me her "tape purse"...it had a long blue shoulder strap (of paint tape) connected to a wadded up ball (of paint tape) and on it she had stuck some money, dollars and coins, some chapstick, her library card, photos and various other items.
She said, "look at my tape purse mom".
I though it was pretty clever.
In light of all the recent blog comment infiltration it got me to thinking how vulnerable we have become as a society of communicators. There are those that say, "you facebookers and bloggers deserve it" the way you post all your information all over the place"...and I say to them...
Facebook (which I only use as a tool to promote my business) and Blogger.com (which I use for decorating ideas and other amusement) is like Mattie's tape purse. All the stuff is on the outside..all the stuff we post...is on the outside....just like Mattie's tape purse!
the internet is not genius..in fact it is just a simple thing that millions of people like to use...like a hanger or a q-tip, or a dryer sheet...
kind of makes you begin to think that the one who creates a way to communicate when we all take a stand against www...will be the real genius
and just a message to you booger head hackers...
if I want to buy some speed...I will go down to my local Allsups where I can at least support my own peeps who need to pay for diapers for their kids...so go engage in a real challenge and hack each other!
now...off for some fun looking at the blogs I love and adore!
