I've finally given in and started a blog. Afterall, all of my friends have them, so why shouldn't I?
Here we go!
My thoughts on the world - Anyday/Anymonth/Anyyear
Wow, since this is my first blog entry, I'm gonna make this a doozy!
What's wrong with the world, anyhow?
Blah blah blah, gas shortage this, immigration reform that, political this and that, look at me! I'm so smart! My trite and hackneyed ideas have so much value and I'm sure that if people just read this blog, the world would be a greater place to be! Whoopty do! Religion this, art that, one little paragraph to solve the world's problems! I'm just the greatest! George Bush this, Hillary Clinton that; wow, I'm sure my thoughts on these matters are just so darn important!
Ok, there you have it... That's pretty much the blog I would write on a daily basis, so I'm striving for max efficiency here.
