in the beginning

Admittedly, I've said a lot of negative things about blogs in the past.

While they are sometimes funny and occasionally moving, they are often self-indulgent, narcissistic pieces of exhibitionist drivel. So, of course, I've decided I have to have one, too. Not so much because I need the whole world to know what I'm up to daily (though the thought of a cyber-stalker or two does feed my own self-indulgent, narcissistic, exhibitionist tendencies), but primarily because I suck at writing when I know I'm the only one who will read it. Ironically, it makes me far too self-conscious -- like hearing your own voice on your answering machine. Even if no one actually reads this, the fact that they could gives me a little more focus and context.

That being said...I got nothing else at the moment. It's Saturday, high 70's, cloudless. Near perfect. I'm going to go enjoy it while I can.

Okay, so first of all....I must address this "I am a lousy write" bullshit. I have SEVERAL email communications from early in our relationship that would provide ample evidence to the contrary. These communications were so utterly witty and beautiful that they alone could have forced me into love with you,... if only for a time before our combined energies threatened to destroy the balance of the universe. You are a terrific writer, and one of the few people whose "blogs" I would actually READ. Seriously, dude. Don't be so hard on your self. Though you know I am a sucker for self-deprecating geniuses.
