In The Beginning...

So here is the thing…

Many people have told me I should write a blog. “You are funny… blah blah.” “You have good insights… blah blah.” “More people need to hear your stories… blah blah.” I decided it probable wasn’t a good idea and here are some of the reasons why.

For those of you who know me, I am much more of a Math/Science kind of guy. My grammar is a little less than stellar. Where vs. wear... homonyms are hard! I should have never gone to AP English. Who cares about alliteration and foreshadowing and that Onomatopoeia...on-a-tomoato-pita… oh whatever the hell it is, when you can't spell? Robert Frost… screw him, let’s talk some photosynthesis and Darwin.

I had ill-fated xanga attempt a couple of years ago. I think that didn’t fly because it didn’t have a focus unless it was American Idol season. Most of the posts had too many exclamation points and contained some derivative of the word “WOOT”. Here are some examples:

Well, now that college football has ended, my thoughts now turn to one great competition. OH YES!! American Idol!

Do I really have enough interesting stories? I am West Virginia/Oklahoma Boy that was in Marching Band and in the Band Fraternity that joined a General Fraternity and advises Sororities Full Time and lives in a college town that just lost 100 pounds. Never mind… I am good on this point.

After considering all these points, I think the time is right. The world is ready for my point of view. I am not sure when this will kick up… here are possible topics.
