So this is, um, like a blog, and, um, totally unlike every other “here’s my job aren’t I so smart I hate my job my lover is a jerk ooh look how cute my cat is” screed on the planet.
Ain’t it wonderful how peer pressure gets you to do stupid things, like tell people who have not enough interest to pick up a 3 ounce phone and go through the torture of dialing your number to ask what you think of a topic exactly what you think of a topic? Nonetheless, here it is, 3 years after I had the idea to put regular essays on my site and promptly dismissed it as an arrogant idea that nobody would read and would be worthless anyway.
Actually, I’m probably right on both counts. Still, here you are, and aren’t we both feeling a tad intellectually challenged now?
