If you are a frequent reader of this blog, you're probably aware that nothing I say should be taken seriously. I write horrible things that will undoubtedly give me a front-row seat in hell, mainly because my parents didn't love me enough, and I'm constantly seeking attention from strangers (which explains the weird taint-rash I can't seem to shake.)
Anywho, I want you all to know that I mean everything I'm about to say for once.
In the past couple of weeks, I have gotten a lot of love from people in the blogosphere, and I just wanted to take a moment away from talking about balls to tell all you guys how thankful I am.
I started this blog after a particularly hellacious day serving coffee, and I never expected for anyone besides my co-workers to read it. I wrote a couple posts about a customer that reminded me a Slingblade, and for the most part, forgot about it.
Then my college graduation loomed, and I began to get the sinking feeling that my journalism degree would go unused. It's not that I didn't enjoy being a journalist, but it just didn't feel right. I had come from a creative-writing/performance background and only majored in journalism, because I felt it would have a more concrete endpoint. Too bad I didn't know that endpoint would involve a string of internships that had me jabbing myself in the hand with a pencil to stay awake. I wanted freedom to write whatever I wanted, so I came back to my long-lost blog and started to write.
That was about three months, and I never expected to have readers. I never expected to have accolades from people who make me laugh so hard I'm afraid I might pee on myself. I never expected to post a picture of Roberto Arango's asshole. But unexpected things happen, and I'm here.
I know I'm not huge (not even close), and as many people have told me I'm more likely to be a vagrant on the street sauteing pigeons over a trashcan fire, than to make a living from being a blogger. But to be honest, none of that matters, because I'm in love with writing again, and I have every person who has ever viewed this blog to thank for that.
So I just want to let everyone know, that I appreciate you all more than words can say.
Alright, enough of that, I'm going to go put some calamine lotion on my weird taint-rash, and I'll be back to talk about closet-case politicos on Tuesday.
