Fortune smiles

I ate a fortune cookie today and my fortune?

"You will exceed your expectations"

What does that say about me? Do I have low expectations of myself? I'm sure it is supposed to be along the lines of "you will do great things." I mean, who doesn't want a positive fortune. It just feels a little sad to me.

Treading on Virgin Soil

It isn't an easy thing, this first blog post. I don't have anything especially insightful to say, or any important project to document, because really nothing is good enough to be The First. Normally I would sit and think, and come up with nothing all that grand and then procrastinate. Because I would have to wait. Wait until that insightful or important event happened that would not only make me look good, but make me look smart, and witty and well...who am I kidding. None of that matters unless anyone but me reads this. And in order for anyone else to read this I would have to tell them where it is, which I won't until I feel that a preponderance of credible content is achieved.

So, for today I offer up the first post to the gods of jumping in with both feet. Tomorrow I'll start the manifesto.
