Hi guys. Welcome to whatever this is. In making this blog public I have a few goals:
- To create an outlet for my tirades, ideally reducing my participation in flame wars
- To entertain people in longer formats than are practical on social media
- To slow the inexorable slide into illiteracy that began with my first year of med school
I think the ideal blog might lie at the intersection of On the Economy and Hyperbole and a Half. This blog will not lie there. It will probably lie in the intersection of Killjoy Feminist Lane and Nerd Boulevard, in a town with a funny name, such as Prairie du Sac (it’s real).
You’ll notice I’m using my real name. I do hope I don’t come to regret that.
You may also notice a hiatus of more than a year in between posts. That did happen, and it may happen again. In fact, if/when this stops being fun for me I’ll feel no compunction to continue. So if you’d like for this blog to be a part of the great internet cotton ball you’re using to plug that hole in your psyche, don’t give me a reason to quit (such as being rude in the comments).
Thanks for stopping by, y’all.
