white noise

I can't believe I've now joined the ranks of the bloggers, but here I am. I expect I'll be changing this template soon as there's only so long I can hang with the sanitary napkin box look. Is everyone's first post about their first post? Also, whilst staring in the mirror, I worry somehow that naming this blog after myself is gauche, declase, not done, lame, egomaniacal and yet naming it something wry, coy and clever would just be dishonest, like trying to mask narcissism with a saucy band-aid. And it is narcissism, all this writing and whatnot. Because it wouldn't really be about a tempest in a teapot. Or critical mass. Or something lifted from a TS Eliot poem. Or something lifted from pop culture. Or something ironic and postmodern, which were the other options. You know?

I'm just saying 'hi' from 8/28/08. I doubt Alison will even see this, but it's kinda cool to read your first blog on this site.
