Things....

I would rather be interesting than perfect.  If you happen to fail to be interesting one day, people understand.  "He'll be interesting tomorrow."  But if you fail to be perfect, it's all over.

I'm still learning about....well damn, just about everything.  In particular, sharing all my stupid thoughts/experiences/feelings/etc with a bunch of people I don't know....i.e. blogging.  I stumbled across another nice one today (and even became a "follower"...never was much of a leader) and she had a post listing a bunch of things.  So I'm stealing the idea.  Hope she doesn't mind.

  2. You're very welcome. I loved it! I'm not sure I'm gonna keep this blogging thing up, I don't know if I can manage the whole sharing-everything-with-the-world thing. We'll see. :)

    And pie is where it's at, man. ;)
