Skype n00b

Hello, my name is Betsy. I have one brother and one sister. And I'm a Skype n00b.

I feel as though I should be visiting some sort of interwebs confessional for just now hopping onto the videochat bandwagon. But hey, I guess this is where that whole "better late than never" theory applies. (Sadly, it does not apply to the summer homework essay I have yet to begin reading the book for.)

Seeing as I will be arriving in Utah in just over one week, I decided it was high time for me to go to skype.com and make myself an account. Seriously though, for any non-believers out there, it is quite possibly the easiest thing I've done all summer break... And this is coming from a girl who sits on the couch all day watching TV and eating both my own and my sister's share of the snacks in our snack cupboard. (It's a grueling 10-ft. walk, lemme tell ya.)

The first (and so far, only) person I've chatted with thus far has been mi padre. Mind you, he was just 25 ft. away from me when the call was made, so I don't know if it should really count...

Originally, I hesitated to advertise my new-found bout with technology. I've never considered myself particularly photogenic, and now I'm trying to figure out what it's called when you're on video so I can say the same thing about that. Videogenic?

For those of you willing to be my friend (it can be our little secret, promise) and see something resembling a large dead rat on video, add me at: betsy.kay.b

On a side note...
I wanted "betsyblanchard" or I would have even settled for "betsy.blanchard," but there is this undeclared battle between myself and a couple of other Betsy Blanchards out there in this big ol' world. The very same Betsy Blanchards that took betsyblanchard@gmail.com, the betsyblanchard YouTube account, and numerous other account names I continue to lust after to this day. But aha! I was the first to get facebook.com/betsyblanchard. In your face, Bets.
