Opening Ceremonies

Hello. I am Sam. I live in Columbus, Ohio. Welcome to my blog.

Man, that opening sucks. I don't much care, because no one will read this, most likely. Well, except for the one or two humans that actually enjoy reading things that most resemble a train wreck on the side of the road. I haven't blogged before, so I will suck at it for a while. Hopefully, for those of you who actually read this drivel, I will be able to dazzle you with my less-than-rapier wit, and stun you with my less-than-fantastic imagery. Otherwise, I will pray for your immortal soul, because this will suck badly if I can't develop talent.

Anyway, I have started a blog. I need a release for all of the completely random shit that travels through my brain each day. I will cover anything and everything that comes to mind. Some days, I will cover nothing. There will probably be no discernable pattern to this, hence the name and URL.

Here's a bit of background about me. I am married (no kids, have dog) and living in Columbus, Ohio, although I grew up in Bridgeport, Alabama. I work in Customer Service for Highlights for Children (yes, the kid's magazine). I am a black belt in Shito-Ryu Karate. I play video games (Xbox) and Magic: The Gathering. I love music, preferably hard rock and punk, but I'll listen to anything once. I am also a sports junkie. I love the University of Alabama in college sports, the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL, the Atlanta Braves in MLB, the Chicago Bulls in the NBA, and the Columbus Crew in MLS. Any or all of these topics are fair game, so I may praise the Falcons, bitch about the last Magic tournament I attended, or tell you my opinion of the new Xbox game I just bought.

That's it for now.

Random answers by a random human Being:

HI,I´m Oliverio, I live in Asturias, Spain.I guess i´m one of thoes humans that enjoy reading things that resemble a train wreck. I think Blogging is the last hope for the internet, a chance for the net to be what it should be, a way to put people in touch and share ideas that otherwise would be apart, of course that depends on the people, not on tecnology alone.

I´ll do some background too: I´m not married and don´t plan to be by now, I´ve practiced Tae Kwon do and now Aikido, I love playing with my Xbox and I spend the rest of my time studying (ok some party from time to time too)

See u later

I am also fairly new to blogging, though I think it's a great idea. My sister started a site and told me about it so we could keep each other updated on things happening in our lives. I think your blog is cool - not a train wreck. : ) A little background on me - I'm married with a 5 year old from a previous relationship. I'm in the military and going to school full-time, so I tend to remain pretty busy. I love music - also mostly punk and hard rock, but I too often listen to other things just to check them out. What are some of your faves? I was bored and reading through some of the blogs just to check them out and decided to post a comment. Hope you don't mind. Well, I guess that's it. Later.

Hi - You must have done a pretty good job to get four people to comment on your blog in like the first day. I've been flogging away at my four and no one ever reads them. Oh well. Have fun and good luck.

Hey, Sam, Just checking things out. Seems like a cool way to meet people. I was just checking the posts. Not bad for your first Blog. Not exactly what you would see in Highlights (unless they do an offshoot called 'Goofus Grows Up'- but then I always thought Goofus was much more interesting), but much more entertaining than the Muzak! (that's a compliment in case you couldn't tell) See you at work. -L
