but vaguely useful if you want to know what's going on.
So I followed the lead of another blogger (Chapter Two) and decided to create an anonymous persona for blogging purposes. There's nothing big to hide: I'm not a celebrity; I'm not a public person; I don't have a reputation that would be destroyed if something I said here became public. Hell, my reputation might actually improve.
But what happened on my other blogs is that I'm a private person, and I keep my internal editor high, and I was squelching a huge amount of things that I wanted to talk about because I didn't want to deal with friends or relatives, as well-meaning as they are, coming back to me about it. I don't want my liberal friends asking me how I could consider joining the NRA. I don't want my social-conservative friends giving me shit about why I favor gay marriage. I don't want my boss to ask me what I was thinking when I complained about an idiotic policy at work. I don't want my friends sniggering and asking me if I really had sex with an inflatable beach ball last summer.
This blog is about all the things that are part of my life, or that I find interesting, which I wouldn't easily discuss elsewhere. That may include politics, definitely sex (which is why the content warning is on), and annoyances of everyday life.
Hopefully I'll be amusing doing it.
P.P.S. (as I type this) my profile photo is Michael Caine from the movie Second Hand Lions. I chose it because I like the character and the movie: read more into it at your peril because trust me, there is nothing more to it. I'll be changing it as the mood strikes me.
