be my friend?


I've said for many years that I don't feel my age. For the longest time, I've felt "stuck" at an internal 22. Maybe 23, on days when I feel particularly mature. But that's over.

I am officially the last person on earth to join MySpace. Shortly after I made my page, I heard them shutting the door behind me. And I've found that I'm not 22. Not even 23. I'm "that old person they let in out of pity."

I squeal whenever I load my page and find that someone else has added me to their page. "I have twelve friends!" I yelled downstairs to Zac yesterday. Later, just after a squeal, it was, "Guess what? Matthew Ward has made me his friend!" Now, just my sudden intake of air has him (Zac) heading me off. "Yes, Mom, I know. They like you ... they really like you."

I haven't felt this way since junior high. It's suddenly become very important that I have friends. So ... won't you be mine?

Throw a bone to the old lady.

You are way too cute. I don't ever want to hear you call yourself the old lady again!! You are SO not! :) Thanks for being my friend. I love you.

Soon you'll be the most popular girl on MySpace. ;)

I haven't even met you in person, but my impression of you certainly isn't old! And this should make you feel better...I'm not on myspace and I don't really even understand what it's for? Talk about being old! But seriously, what's the difference between having a blog and myspace?

Love, Sonja

lol, you're a nut Shannon! You're just going to have to settle for being my friend offline because I don't have a myspace page either!

Ditto what Fran said! You know what a computer whiz I am! And if you're old, then I'm a dinosaur! I love the way you write Shannon,I can just picture the scene. It really made me chuckle!

Well, I guess I will have to get with it and join myspace. So, if you are still 22 does that mean I am still 13?!?

Oh, and the glamour shot of you on myspace... you don't look a day over 22! Great picture.

Oh my gosh! you are so funny! You never cease to amaze me.
I can't wait to see Jesus, because I know He has all of your character in Him too, because He created you!
