This is the “About” page where I’m supposed to tell you what I’m “about.” You might also call it “where I’m coming from,” so that when you read my blog, you’ll know “where I’m at.” Bottom line is, you probably came into this page to figure out who might be writing this crap. After all, it is a moderately interesting question. I could be that psycho dude who lives next door to you, right? Or, I could be the hemorphodite that lives in the house at the end of the block.
I could be a member of congress, a dwarf car salesman, a martial arts instructor with nine kids, a Catholic Bishop, a lesbian bounty hunter, or an expert in artificial intelligence. I might be a ferry boat Captain, or a technical writer, or a designer of custom watches. Maybe I carve emu eggs with a Dremel. Maybe I adjust the reflectors on bicycles. Maybe I juggle flaming chainsaws on weekends at the local flea market.
I could be all of these things, or I could be none of them. But what I can tell you is that I’m just a dude. I’m not a girl. I’m not really young or really old. I’m not extremely religious or intensely atheistic. I’ve got a lot of opinions on a lot of things, and sometimes I’m passionate about them. Other times I don’t care all that much, but still have a good sense of right and wrong. Mostly I look at the future. I suppose that might be something of a talent.
I’m not necessarily brilliant at looking at the future, mind you. I’m sure there are others better at it than I am. But I look at it anyway, because it’s coming. That’s how the future is. You can’t stop it, and before you know it, it’s yesterday. So you’ve got to pay attention to it. The future is like dog food. First it’s in the bowl. Then it’s in the dog. And then it’s poop. Future to present to past. That’s life. That’s the future in a bowl of dog food. (And in the dog. And then on your lawn).
I do know one thing about myself, and that is that I’m not conservative (as conservatives define themselves). Nor am I liberal (as liberals define themselves). I’m something different. I pick and choose between the liberal and conservative viewpoints. I let logic (my own screwy logic) determine how I should stand on issues. And I try not to let my emotions get in the way of my opinions (although I sometimes fail at that).
That’s who I am. Just some dude. Maybe some dude near you.
You never know…
