Casey Anthony Comes Out of Hiding With Online Diary (Video)

"It's a little surreal how much things have changed since July," the acquitted mom reflects

Shhh … don't tell Nancy Grace, but Casey Anthony is back on the scene.

Anthony — who threw HLN talking head Grace, along with a good portion of the country, into a state of apoplexy in July when she was found not guilty of murdering her daughter Caylee — has re-entered the public eye with a video diary that promises to be the first in a series.

In the video, Anthony — who's maintained a low profile worthy of Dick Cheney since her acquittal of the murder — sports a new look, with short blond hair and glasses, as she muses about the path her life has taken in the past half-year.

“It’s just a little surreal how much things have changed since July and how many things haven’t changed,” Anthony reflects.

Anthony doesn't disclose her location in the video, but she does reveal that she's very excited to reconnect with the world at large through her video blog project, as she's been terribly lonely since July.

“Now I in some ways have someone to talk to even when I am by myself so I am not bothering the poor dog who I have adopted and I love,” Anthony says.

The proud pet owner also enthuses that, thanks to the project, "I have something that I can finally call mine,” noting that that it’s “been a long time since I’ve been able to call something mine.”

Besides the wrath of Nancy Grace, of course.
