Talk About it Tuesday

Have you ever just wanted to write about whatever you want?  Even if its out of the norm for your blog?  Well, now you can feel comfortable about it!  Sometimes I just want to write about whatever is on my mind, whether its:
 
What's going on in my life;
What I'm currently interested in and studying;
How I'm feeling;
Goals;
New ideas;
Future Plans;
Whatever!
 
And I want to encourage you to do the same!  So, go ahead.  Write a post about anything you feel like writing about and link it up here so I can read it and leave you a comment.  
 
Then read other participants posts and comment on theirs.  I bet they'll do the same for you!  
 
Don't forget to grab the Talk About it Tuesday button for your blog to support yourself and all Tuesday writers.

Have fun writing and I look forward to reading your posts!
 
 
Talk About it Tuesday
 
Ok everybody.  I have a confession.  I really love to study etiquette!!!  Isn't that weird?  When I'm in my college English class and we switch into new groups for a discussion or something about our research papers, I'm always a little timid to talk about my subject.  I really don't want people to think I'm stuffy and uptight, because I thought that was how alot of people viewed proper etiquette.  As a bunch of bothersome "rules" that need not be bothered with.  I am continuously suprised every time I introduce my subject by the people who actually find it a great topic and that yes, we do need more of it. 
 
Can you believe it?  I almost couldn't myself.  Now, I won't pretend that I have perfect manners in any way whatsoever!  I am reading a rather suprisingly funny book about the subject called Miss Manners by Judith Martin and am continuously finding things to improve on for myself.  And Miss Manners has such an upfront and joking manner in how she answers her readers etiquette questions, that its turning out to be an enjoyable read.
 
For me, I really enjoy humor, especially when it doesn't involve lots and lots of crude jokes.  Sometimes that can just be a little much for my personal enjoyment.  Just good, clean, funny by Miss Manners is great!
 
One of my favorites:
 
Dear Miss Manners: If you had a single piece of advice to offer a couple who want to break into society, what would it be?
 
Gentle Reader: Don't bother.
 
Dear Miss Manners: What is the proper way to walk in high-heeled shoes?
 
Gentle Reader: Left, right, left, right, left, right.
