What a fine bunch O people U R

  1. So anyway, I was doing lunch with my Mother yesterday. My life has been so crazy it's been literally months since we've done lunch. And I start talking about you all. My mother (who is not the computer literate type) is looking at me in amazement and wondering how I can go on about people I've never even met in person. I'm talking about where you're all from and what you do etc.

    Anyway, I just wanted to remind you how much you all mean to me and how happy I am to have met you literally from nowhere.
    Dudes, I love you! (no I haven't been drinking!)

    Awww Adrienne! How sweet!

    It's the same way with my mom. Extremely computer illiterate. And I'll find myself talking about y'all, or meeting some of you, or the Christmas card thing, and I'm just met with this blank stare.

    "Those psychopaths prey on people over that internet."

    "You mean, you've never even met most of these people?"

    I really do think that as a whole, we really rock!

    My kids and hubby are used to it, but I have gotten the same blank stares from others in the family or friends, so I usually don't talk about it to them!

    My parents have mastered e-mail (thats without attatchments) and thats the extent of their internet expertise.
    Online shopping?
    Travel reservations?
    Meeting people?
    Forget it!

    My dad gets the mail during the week, and he's like "what, are you getting cards from people on the internet?"


    My boyfriends grandparents are so funny when it comes to computer stuff.

    "What's a CD?"

    " Oh, you mean that little mini record thing?"

    "what's a CD Rom?"

    "OH! Is that like a little record player?"

    "I bet you put that little mini record in that!"

    Adri- that was sweet.
    I am barely computer literate. The dear girl child I raised (who is ) thinks I have lost my mind. I had to come clean about you guys when she came this weekend when she found all the Christmas cards. I got a big lecture about safety and i just kept telling her.."no, no, they are not like that".

    I gab away about "the nurses on all nurse" all the time. This site has been so helpful to me and sometimes I spread the advice around.

    There's no denying, it feels like extended family here.

    I may not respond to every thread or convey my every thought sometimes, but I do care about everyone here.

    Mostly I like to play around and be silly, every now and then I'll get serious. But, for the most part, I just like sharing in the smiles.

    I mentioned a few of you to someone recently, and all I got was a big stare. I've never posted on a BB before I found this site! And I've yet to ever enter a chat room (maybe someday soon on this site once I get my own computer I will). Allnurses is just something you can't understand if you don't experience it for yourself!!

    I don't tell anyone about it b/c then they'd all spy on me....or want to join. I'm selfish that way. I found you guys first....

    Ditto Kristy. I only share with people that couldn't navigate their way to it themsleves!
