to answer a technical question:
the reason i chose to create a new blog, as opposed to publicizing my old xanga blog, is that i would have to manually & individually make every post for 4 years private in my old blog, then make the newer posts public. otherwise, i would have to keep paying for premium to protect my past entries while blogging publicly. (because i have so many posts from my past 4 years that are just too detailed to make public, whether it be about where i live or what i look like nude) yeah, tedium. so i just made a new one. besides, wordpress, so far, is impressive.
all is well this evening. we are tired- i am milking two cows two times a day. it is intense.
