And so it begins…

September 30, 2009 1 comment

It came upon me quite suddenly, like a flash of light, or a parting in the clouds, or a sneeze.  It would be a wonderful idea, one that would be my first step into the vast arena of the public eye.  Yes, my friends, your suspicions (if you have any right now) are correct:  the fabulous idea was that I would START A BLOG.

(I occasionally like to type words/phrases in caps.  I think they add a quirky, slightly humorous emphasis and charm, similar to the kind you find in British books for children.  Don’t ask me why I think this.  I feel sorry for you all already.)

So why did I start this blog?  I can get pretty caught up in the news of the day and I love to read reviews of all kinds–TV, movies, etc.  I’ve always thought it would be fun to put out musings on the news and reviews and such of my own for other people to read.  And one evening, as I sat there in an icy auditorium listening to that slightly dry university lecture on the pros and cons of allowing commenting on news stories (it results in a virtual cesspool!), I hit upon it:  start a blog!

(Rather: START A BLOG!)

It was perfect!  I could write about what I like and others might enjoy reading it.  And fortunately for you, my interests are vast.  They are also somewhat eclectic: books, TV shows, movies, music, book/TV show/movie/music reviews, nature, Catholicism, Minnesota (can you guess where I’m from?), antiques, baking, cooking, film history, photography, the 19th century,  pets, The Phantom of the Opera, decorating, scrapbooking, Roger Ebert, costumes, travel, Sweeney Todd, current events, pop culture, Twin Cities life, etc.  Hopefully there will be a little something for everyone.  Oh, but just so you know, I don’t care as much about sports that don’t involve the Olympics, although since the last PGA I’ve found golf quite interesting.  *many stop reading*

What else should you know about me?  I love beauty, particularly less obvious beauty.  I love innocent fun and am incorrigably sentimental.  And I procrastinate.  Which doesn’t bode too well for a blog, but I won’t be too obsessive about writing schedules. 

If you’ve come this far, thank you.  I think we could be friends.~
