[iPhone] Bike week Daytona beach on 12seconds.tv

Last year at this time, I had been on Main Street in Daytona Beach at least three times.  On each occasion, I saw something new, interesting, sometimes exciting, and quite possibly, disturbing.  Since I got my computer working again, I am going to have to post some pictures from last year.  I think most of them are *safe*. 

I plan on visiting Main Street tomorrow afternoon, but I have to bring my dogs to the vet first.  It just hit me that the vet trip is going to be one hell of an adventure.  The location is right around the Daytona Speedway, which isn’t always a bad thing.  However, being Bike Week 2009, there are events going on at the Speedway itself.  LOTS of events.  ::Sigh::  I really should have thought that through a bit better…

My goal last year was to find a woman, age 65+ wearing leather chaps.  Did I find it?  Ohhh yeah…  Not sure that was a good goal. 

This year?  I’m thinking…  I can do something generic like, the craziest bike I see all day.  Or something more specific.  But what?  A paint job with at least three skulls on it, one of which must be wearing an eye patch on its left eye.  Any thoughts?  I guess I’ll play that one by ear.

 

Introducing myself to the world! (Blogosphere, anyway) February 5, 2009

I am happy to say, that after a lot of searching for the perfect place to begin my blog, I decided upon WordPress.com.

Why, you might ask?

Well, it seemed to be the easiest to use.  Plus, a while back I bought a book about it and decided that I should really try to put it to good use!

As of this moment, this will be my personal blog – hence the title. However, it will contain many different subjects. Hopefully, it will eventually branch out into a couple of other blogs!

So, who am I and why should you care? Well, I’m Daria (it’s nice to meet you!), and I am a novice blogger from Florida. I am entering my thirty-something years, and I guess I am going through a second adolescence. I have lots of ideas, desires and goals, but I have yet to choose how to go about putting them where they need to go in my life.

I live in the Daytona area with my fiance, (I don’t want to invade his privacy by posting his name yet, so eventually I will come up with something to call him), a roommate (same issue with his privacy), two adult Basset Hounds – Frank and Beans (I don’t think they will much care about their privacy), and their five puppies. Needless to say, it is quite a busy house on a full day!

I work full time but have dreams of working from home, being my own boss, the usual. I am hoping that this blog can help. (I will get to that in a future post.) I really enjoy what I do, but I look forward to doing more and becoming more involved with the company.  Unfortunately, the girl I work closest with doesn’t want to show me everything I would like to know.  It makes the day just drag by.. I need to find other stuff to do.

I enjoy movies and television and the like.  So, I’m sure there will be a lot of mention of different shows and comments from different flicks that I enjoy and just have stuck in my brain at the time I decide to post.

If anything, I will try to keep this light and entertaining.  I will welcome any and all constructive criticism and actually hope to receive lots of it!  I, like many of you out there, am looking to not necesarilly make a name for myself in the blogging world, but at least get a few readers who enjoy my possibly unique way of looking at things, or find comfort in the fact that I can see stuff the way they do.

Either way – it will definitely be a learning experience!
