I've never been much of one for diaries. I don't have the discipline, and despite my best intentions, months pass between entries and I just end up giving up.
Recently, though, I've wanted to work out ideas that have occurred to me at inconvenient times. Most folks I know do this by e-mailing their ruminations to acquaintances, but I've never felt that I have that kind of relationship with much of anyone.
Hence the LiveJournal. I'll give it a try, at least, and see how it goes.
One of these days I'll even put information into the "personal info", against the day that anyone actually cares ....
