Hello world!

October 5, 2007

Well, this is it. My first venture into Blogdom. I have no idea what I’m doing so if anyone out there happens to come across this, please be kind, at least in the beginning. Here’s a little info about me. I have been living in Japan for almost 11 years now with a 2 year break in there somewhere. I moved back to Michigan, couldn’t find a job that paid and had to move back to Japan. But we will talk about all of that in the coming weeks and months. I want to use this blog as a steam conduit for all of the strange winds that blow through my mind. Just a taste of what you might expect:

1. The joys and travails of living in a foreign country. This has probably been written about a million times before, but not by me, so therefore doesn’t count.
2. Some kibbles and bits about sports. I dig ’em, and I want to talk about them.
3. Books and the people who write them.

What you shouldn’t expect:
1. Flawless blog presentation. I actually have no idea what flawless blog presentation is. So with that reasoning, everything I write will be flawless because I don’t know any better. Right?
2. Guest bloggers. I know nobody.
3. Wit and humor on par with the likes of the great ones: George Bernard Shaw, Mark Twain, Shania Twain, Bill Simmons, and of course the indomitable Dane Cook. What? I said you shouldn’t expect it. That doesn’t mean it might not flare up once in awhile.
Also, before I go, I want to add that the above Expected and Unexpected List is subject to change at any time. (This writer pauses, closes his eyes, and smells the sweet winds of destiny)

…It’s almost as if I am king of the world.
