Lessons to re-learn.

It’s not a case of looking at a glass and asking if you’d describe it as half-full or half-empty; it’s recognizing it’s both, simultaneously. It’s also saying “Cool, we have enough water today. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.” - John Scalzi

Disambiguation

I appear to be all over the web. As some of you might come upon this blog before any of my others, I should probably spend some time describing this particular blog's purpose.

It began as a class blog, created for a CSS class that I was taking at Michigan State University. This was back in the olden days of 2005, when we were still riding around in horse-driven carriages, and we walked uphill both ways to school. Back when the idea that HTML tables might not be for formatting was new-fangled codswallop.

It then sat unused for a while, before being dusted off as a rant blog for my divorce. As it wasn't visited very often by anyone due to its disuse, it was perfect for me to rant to those specific few that I wanted to read my rants and get feedback from. I later made it more public by linking to it from my LiveJournal, once a lot of the divorce's drama had settled down. This caused an unintended upsurge in the drama, but I had more eyes reading what's been called my most honest writing, so it was worth it.

Since then, it's been a random rant blog, divorced (ha!) from the topic of divorce. Once again, there are few (if any) readers, so I feel safe in expressing thoughts that might cause more drama than I want in my life. Whether or not that safety is an illusion... probably doesn't matter in the end.

So, in conclusion, this blog is filled with a lot of rant, a lot of griping, bitching, and whining, and a lot of darker ideas that might not be entirely socially acceptable. Put on your depression-deflecting goggles, and consider yourself forewarned.

Facepalm

Editing Adam's Name and The Remembrance has me thinking about Detroit again. And then Matt sent me an awesome wanted ad from a company there. Crap.
