Born of Necessity....

Not always the best cause to start anything, as haste is usually involved, but... well, there you go. 

Certain people (you know who you are)  have told me I should blog because

1)  I write so bloody much anyway it's ridiculous. It's true. I do it as a hobby. Whole unfinished chapters of fiction. Not bad stuff, but better than you'd think would come from someone like me. Thoughts. Descriptions of things that aren't. Dialogues that should perhaps stay internal. 

2) They think I'm absolutely hilarious/insane/serious and can't wait to see what spills out of my mouth next, let alone what I'm thinking. To those people I say "Be careful what you wish for..."

To be quite honest, the term Blog has always annoyed the heck out of me because it sounds like the noise someone makes when trying to eject something foreign from their own throat. Also, a lot of people are pretentious, self-important, dull, humorless, and/or just plain boring. Working part-time in retail when I was in college has taught me just how stupid and pedestrian 90% of everybody else can be. Working in office buildings has reinforced that.

Really, stop shaking your head. You've seen it. You agree. Otherwise you wouldn't find Dilbert and Clerks so hilarious.

Plus, I can't stand blogs. I really can't. 

Regardless (or irregardless) I'm a blogger now.

God help us.
