That last post was probably TMI, I know… I’m sorry. But it was too long to tweet, and I sure as hell wasn’t gonna post it on Facebook. I guess I could have posted on Google+, but I wanted at least one person to read it…
Anyway, so I’m still trying to figure out what I want my blog to be… most bloggers nowadays blog about something… you know, like, a sports blogger. Or a game blogger. Or a mommy blogger. But I’m not any of that. I don’t want to be any of that.
I don’t want to have to write “articles”, either. I’m ok with structured writing for a while, but once the article starts getting long, I get lazy and start writing more “stream of consciousness”. Kinda like now.
But I prefer that. I don’t want this blog to be “about” anything. It will just “be”. And I’m not writing this for my “readers”; it’s for my friends, and whatever strangers happen to stumble upon this place.
OK, so speaking of stream of consciousness…
Just a (not so) random thought… one of the jokes between Joelle and me is what’s known as a “Chicago ending.” It refers to something that doesn’t know how to end, or takes forever to end. (think about every Chicago song you’ve ever heard… the ending is always clumsy, right? just like when you have a conversation with someone and neither person knows how to say “OK, see ya!”)
So now you’re in on one of our little inside jokes.

I told you I was a geek…
But, yeah. I have a photoset on Flickr of just me making the “live long and prosper” sign. I even started a group so others could add their pictures, if so inclined. Please, if you’re a Trek geek like me (and have a Flickr), come and join the group!And if you ever visit Vegas and have Foursquare, you might see me all over the place there. I’m either gonna start a trend, or people will want to shoot me. Or both.
One thing I’ve done for the past few years is… well, a few years back, on Flickr, it was all the rage to do a “Project 365″, wherein you’d take a picture of yourself every day for a year. I decided to put a twist on it – take a picture of my pal Domo every day. I kept up with it for a while, then kinda fell off the wagon. For the past three years, I’ve been updating it on and off, but now I’m so close to done, I’m just gonna keep going, and then maybe when I’m done, I’ll start a fresh one (and really try to keep up with the posting one per day). If you want to check on my progress, or hey, if you’ve got a few minutes to kill, I invite you to check out what I’ve got so far: Domo 365.
So, if you haven’t noticed, there are some changes around here. This isn’t a re-design; this is an entirely new blog. I decided to take my archives offline… not because I feel like I have something to hide, but rather because I wanted a fresh start.
That said, now I’m gonna steal an old idea of mine to start the “About” section. Instead of writing an entire section and editing, I just created it as a category and will post to it occasionally, so I’ll slowly build up a database of “about”-ish stuff.

Lives in: Las Vegas, NV
Job: yes, I have one, but I’m not talking about it here; are you crazy?
Beliefs: Science. I’m open to the idea of *a* God, but if there is a God, then I’m sure he’s nothing like we imagine him to be.
One weird quirk: I’m both a Star Wars and a Star Trek fan. Most people are either one or the other, kinda like Elvis vs. the Beatles. But yes, I like both. And, by “like”, I mean “am a total geek for”.
I think that’s enough for now. Like I said, this will get filled in as I think of more stuff to say…
