I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I don't really have a lot of experience with feelings. So when I get a little tingle that I think might be a feeling, my first instinct should not be to post about it on the Internet, where lack of visual cues and inflection leave everything open to misinterpretation.

There are a couple of options for preferable first instincts:

1.) Remind myself that I'm pretty much a robot, so that little tingle probably just means I have to sneeze or something.
2.) Let myself think it's a feeling, but remind myself that the Internet, even my personal forum, where five-and-maybe-even-more people might read it, is not the place for self-revelation.

So, while I decide which of those two options I like better (in the event that a feeling or feeling-like tingle should arise again), please enjoy the following completely neutral, non-feelings-related, highly-unlikely-to-be-misinterpreted-to-my-disadvantage post about kittens, puppies, and typos.
