My favorite thing for today: fried eggs cooked in bacon grease, with hot sauce.

I can actually hear my arteries hardening.

My favorite thing for today: My cable modem.

While talking to the man with the taste (see Fatnathan's blog) last night, I used my huggable little modem to download some new tunes recommended by Nate in just minutes. Ain't technology cool?

I've given in to the pressure (imagined, to be sure). I've become hip (or, at least, a bandwagon-hopper). I've lost my mind and my senses (not that they were ever that darn great). I've started a Blog.

There seems to be a bit of a dichotomy (one of my favorite words - get used to it) with this blogging deal. Sure, it provides a great way to reveal the inner workings of one's mind, but, at the same time, it's really only those little glimpses that the writer would have us see. Kind of a blog/filter thing, really. But, the blog does allow us to get some crap out of our heads and put it on (electronic) paper. So, I guess the question is: Who is a blog for? The reader or the writer? Both? I'm pretty new at all of this, so I'm not sure yet - maybe I'll figure it out along the way somewhere. But, I guess I should ask myself this: "Would I do this even if I knew no one would ever read it?" Good question, self. People do diaries, right? Hmm . . . but I've never been one of those people. Besides, isn't a blog more than just a web-diary?

So here's the answer to my self-imposed question: Yeah, I suppose I would do it even if I knew no one would read it. But, I might be more inclined to turn my filter off. Here, with readers? The filter is on, baby - and that's just gonna have to be good enough.

The verdict? I guess this blogging business if for us both, the writer and the reader. So, to you, the reader, here's my admonition: what you read here may or may not be true. Take what you want, leave what you don't. Hopefully you'll find more of the former than the latter. Peace.
