This is the big one!

I'm starting a blog. This is an intimidating moment in my life, but it's 4:45 a.m. and I'm working a graveyard shift. Trying to stay awake. My can of tab and goldfish are doing pretty good, but not good enough. Not good enough to keep me doing something ridiculous like start a blog. I think maybe I've become jealous of all the bloggerz I know who form an external sense of self-worth by placing their value in how many hits their blog received, or being offended when someone asks a blogger questions about his or her life because, "don't you read my blog?" I'm mostly doing this so everyone will realize how awesomely packed my life is with wisdom, love, adventure, and scandal.

Elin- this is great because now I can live vicariously through your blog and pretend that my life is packed with wisdom, love, adventure, and scandal. The only problem I can foresee is that, being aware of your geminosity and love of grammar, I might be intimidated to post comments on your blog (very un-Aries,I know). However, I figure that if you can take the risk of putting every dirty detail of your most personal life on the world wide web for the whole world to see, I can take a chance with my grammar. You're truly inspirational. See Elin, your blog's already changing lives.

fun! Even though I suspect that most of your "wisdom" will be borrowed from your library of highlighted EFY and "chicken soup for the soul" books, I look forward to reading about the scandal and love parts. akuna matada (that part is from brian)
