    Yeah, and hopefully I won't be paying for the next one...

    Now this I can totally relate to! I always feel as though the onus is on me to keep it going and pick the time to gracefully end it.

    I've had a couple phone conversations with Elgecko and I was like a fish out of water. But when we have gotten together in person (5X) I was much more comfortable to be myself.

    To give you an idea just how nutsy I am about writing, when I was in college and home on summer break, after work I would come home and immediately check the mail. I would then spend my evenings churning out 8 page letter after 8 page letter, illegible handwriting and crossouts. That was 8 full pages, both sides (16 sides), 8.5 x 11. One summer I sent out 57 letters to college buddies and actually got 43 in return. Not everybody was into keeping in touch or writing letters. Still, it was fun.

    *shrug* Communication is communication.

    I suppose honestly I have to say I like old-fashioned letter-writing the least, not because of anything I have against writing, but just because it's an extra step in the communication process to go out and buy stamps, address the envelope, and put the thing in the mail. I'm awful about that. I almost never send Christmas cards, or anything like that. I was elated when I could finally pay all my bills online instead of writing and mailing checks.

    I love email. I wish I could get my grandma to use a computer. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    For me, I'm much better at communicating when I don't have to use my voice, so I guess that includes everything but phone and in-person. I'm able to use words that define exactly what I mean when I can type it or write it out. When in person or talking on the phone, there's this awkwardness that inhibits me from telling the person what I what I want them to know. I stutter a lot, and that's a bad habit.
