The gentleman I'm seeing - or should I say dating? Can a woman my age date or is that just for young people? - has invited me to a party at the home of someone he works with. A lot of his co-workers are going to be there, too. He told me it's a dinner party with cocktails beforehand and I'm so nervous because I don't think I'm all that good at small talk. Usually we spend time here or he takes me to a restaurant and I feel so comfortable with him. I don't want his friends to think I'm stupid or anything and I don't want to embarrass him by saying something dumb. This is the first time in a long time that I've gone to a party where I literally only know one person. Why did I say yes?!

This morning I asked Shane how I could find a community to join. He told me that I could do a search for interests. I did. Then what seemed like thousands of choices popped up for every interest I typed in! How in the world is someone supposed to know where to go?

I'm not sure this is the place for me. I've noticed that I can read about other people's lives when I don't even know them! Isn't that like eavesdropping? I've already decided that I'm not going to read anything Will writes about unless he specifically tells me I can. I imagine his blogger is like his diary. I didn't read his journals when he was a kid and I'm not going to do it now that he's a grown man. Shane told me that Will could possibly be anxious that I've LJ'd. But, sweetie, if you read this, you don't have to worry, all right? I promise.

hello

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to write for my very first post ever but Shane told me that it doesn't matter. He's the one who told me I could talk to my friends here after I said I wished there was a way to do that not involving email. I don't mind email so much but I know that Will does so many things here with his friends I thought it would be fun to take part. Not that I'm trying to be like my son or anything. He knows that. I hope.

Shane helped me with those pictures (oh, he says the correct term is "icons." Excuse me!) by taking some of my photos and putting them in the computer. There's a process. And he's going to help me "friend" people. I've never heard the word friend used as a verb before, as in "I friended someone." Isn't that funny? I suppose it isn't if you're used to all of this, but I find it amusing. I asked Shane if he uses his blogger(?) a lot and he said he doesn't write in it but reads everything. I think I'd like to write in mine as well as find things to read.

I hope that it's all right for me to "friend" those of you I've met before. I'll be at a loss when Shane's not helping me out so I also hope people won't mind me asking questions.

Okay, I am getting ready to send this. Shane says I should preview then send so I can see my mistakes first. But I don't mind making mistakes as long as it's not some terrible rule I'm breaking.

And what in the world is a community? I know what they are in the outside world but they sound more like clubs to me here. Is that right? I have a lot to learn.
