Who has a Blog?

I was having a discussion with myself as to whether I should create a blog or not. It's not like I have a lot of pent up emotions that needs to be released. There aren't any particular issues or topics I feel so passionate about that I just had to write. So why bother with a blog then? The basic reason for a blog is because I'm bored and it's something to do (which I certain is the reason for most blogs). There is another reason as well, maybe some people can relate. Do you ever get the feeling that you're slightly less intelligent since you graduated from school? You go from having constant mental stimulation through homework, papers, exams, etc. to watching 4 hours of reality t.v. a night and having your brain rot away. I'm getting dumber by the second. So I'm sure writing every once and a while can't hurt. At least it will slow down the process. The main reason though is the most obvious one if you knew me: I just want as many people as possible people to think I'm funny, it's pretty simple.

So that settles that question, I'll make a blog. Then I had another dilemna, what should it be about and what would I name it? Well like I said before, I don't have any issues that need hashing out or anything like that, so it can just be about my everyday life. Pretty original right? The title was easy. I spent the first few years out of college waiting tables at a bar in D.C. and anyone who has spent a significant amount of time doing that knows that you can develop a pretty solid hatred of lots of different people. It was a running joke with a few friends on the staff that I started the majority of my sentences while at work with: You know what I hate... So knowing myself as well as I do I assumed that the majority of my posts would eventually turn into rants about things that are annoying to me. I'll try to be as positive as possible but that can only last but so long.

There you go, I have a blog with a name. Now there are some downsides to this endeavor. My writing skills are nominal at best. That won't lead to a strong readership. Also, I lead a rather boring life as far as I know. So that may be a problem. But whatever, I like a challenge.
