the path of least resistance
i am like an 80 year old. not in all respects of course but there is definitely an overlap. i like large sunglasses, i hate it when people speed in residential neighborhoods, i like knitting and i could watch antiques roadshow for HOURS. i also am slow to embrace new technologies. its true. i definitely heard about youtube from one of my dad's friends, i finally have a dvr (which, btw, is the most amazing thing ever invented) and i just could not get my head around this whole blogging thing. its still a bit of a mystery to me but i figured i spend an awful lot of time forcing people to listen to me talk about what i think about any old random topic, i might as well use the outlet that seems to be pretty much designed for that purpose. it just seems so self indulgent. like what makes me think that anyone is going to bother to read the crap i write. but i am going to be honest, i also think that i have some pretty funny and interesting things to say so, maybe you SHOULD bother to read it. we'll see. in any case i decided to join the flailing masses and start a blog. and then, in a effort to be tediously self referential, blog about starting a blog. its a start.
