Thanks to fellow blogger Steve, I’ve decided to take the plunge and join him (and a bunch of other bloggers I don’t know) and accept the terms of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.

The terms themselves are pretty simple: write a blog post every day for the month of August. how hard can that be? Pretty freaking hard! Except I have all these blog posts in my head – some funny, some serious, some possibly controversial – and up until about 17 minutes ago I had no particularly urgent need to write any of them down. But a brain gets clogged with too much stuff, especially when you add a new job into the mix (what? I haven’t mentioned that? There’s a post right there!) So get ready for the wild ride of the dumping of material from my brain!

For those who don’t know me… here’s a bit about me: I run for fun. Books are my safe space. I love cats and dogs (I have two of the former and one of the latter), and I volunteer with a local animal rescue (WOW it’s been a while since I’ve updated with personal stuff!). See above re vague reference to new job. My eyes don’t work well, but my brain is sharp and my tongue is sharper. I say “fuck” a lot in person (though I can’t remember a single instance on this blog. You probably think you know what I’ll be like if we were to meet in person. You will probably be wrong.

Come along for the next 31 days; who knows what I’ll be brain-dumping next!
