Ok, first of all, I'm new at this. Not that I haven't been writing journals since I was 7, but I've never written one online. If I sound a little nervous, don't mind me. I usually do, anyway. Relaxing is not my strong suit.

Second of all, yes, I live near the beach and the boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ. I'm hoping to find a new place to live by the early fall, though. I love the beach, and I always will, but I'm sick of living on a resort's schedule.

What will you find here? Movie reviews ("Down With Love," anybody? - No Matrix here!), commetary on musicals (I'm a devout showtune lover), childhood stories (I've been feeling nostalgic lately), story ideas (I want to be a writer someday), and random stuff about whatever's on my mind. Be prepared for some venting, since I've been going through a lot of changes lately that I'm not thrilled with, up to and including my landlady raising my rent waaaaay beyond my means. ($550 for a 1 bedroom, 4-room apartment with a tiny bathroom and a clanking, ancient gas heater?)

Not everything is bad. The summer season is starting, which means that I'll actually have something to do in Wildwood besides read, watch my "Perfect Strangers" tapes (I don't have cable), and stare at a computer screen, and my hours at the Acme grocery store where I work will go up.

Um, hmmm. I've got my local radio station's Saturday 70s Show on, and the song is "My Ding-a-Ling." No, you don't want to know what it means...
