Life is not easy. Especially when you are in a family of invisible illnesses and disabilities. It can be serious, funny and downright hard! But we make it. Just like everyone else. We just do it in a different style.

I have Succumbed...


I have finally and fitfully given in and created Facebook and MySpace accounts. Yes, even, old dinosaur me has decided to create a page and profile. Never mind my school (UOP) has created a profile page in my mailer attached to Google.

Now, let me start out by saying, I HATE MySpace! Most pages on their that I seem to stumble across are ugly - stationary backgrounds with moving written parts, black backgrounds and part of the text still in black (where did the rest of the sentence go?), garish, neon-type colors that make me run from my 22" screen. I could go on...blaring music, profanity, TMI, etc, etc. No wonder it got a bad rap.

But, I am one to be convinced. One of my best friends created a page and closed it to everyone, but her friends. SOoooo, I HAD to get a page to even see what she put there. Nice trick, you know who you are!

However, I have been slowly, but surely launching out into the online social scene and now belong to 4-5 communities, (through, Twitter and some other message boards. Plus, I have this blog. It only made sense to "go there." And I have.

But what I am really writing this about (this idea just popped in my head) is I would like to see some well-designed and beautiful MySpace pages. No flashing, writhing animations (so distracting), no grunge (is that still even around?) backgrounds.
Really, people, something good to look at.

I want you to give me an url so I can check them out. I might even showcase some of them, if I really feel they are good. Yes, this will be subjective. I am not trying to please everyone's opinion, just my idea of some decent aesthetics.

Leave me some urls, and I will promise to talk about them. I open my doors and eyes to what you've got.
