What? You actually clicked on this link? Are you actually interested in learning about me or are you just being nice?
Okay, well since you’re here I guess I can tell you a few things.
I’m just a regular stormtrooper trying to make his way through the galaxy. I think I’m funny, which is funny. I also think that I’m a somewhat decent writer, and the web bots agree. Check out this wonderful comment I received:
I identified your weblog internet site on google and check a couple of of your early posts. Proceed to sustain up the superb operate. I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN Data Reader. In search of forward to reading extra from you later on!
See? This person was so in awe after reading one of my superb and unshitty posts that he or she couldn’t form a coherent sentence. So please read some of my work so you too can be reduced to an incoherent, babbling idiot.
Long live the Emperor!
Seriously, though, I was born in Detroit (Motor City, bitches!), Michigan. Sure, Detroit is known for Mo’town, Eminem, Kid Rock, General Motors, and Ford…
I spent most of my childhood moving from town to town, and that sadly was not the result of being in a military family. My father just accepted transfer after transfer. For reasons unbeknownst to me. I’ve lived in the Detroit, Toledo, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Atlanta metro areas. And Washington Court House, OH.
What? You don’t know where that is? Don’t worry, you’re not missing much. You can Google™ it. If you’re really, really bored. And enjoy looking for a needle in a haystack.
I finally settled down just south of Cincinnati about 13 years ago right before my twins were born.
*audible gasp* You have twins? (That’s my least favorite question, by the way.)
Of course I do. I certainly didn’t pick this name because it’s awesome…even though it is.
13-year old 14-year old (help! they keep getting older!) twin boys. Scratch that. I guess they’re young men, now. Oy vey, I’m getting old. My twins have, for the purposes of this blog, been dubbed Baby A and Baby B.
I also have a 3-year old son who is crazy-funny. And yes, I just made that not-so-contracted contraction up, because he’s that damn crazy-funny. He is hilarious. Like me. His name, again for the purposes of this blog, is Baby C.
There’s really no rhyme or reason to the things I blog about. I try to be funny, but I try to be real, too. I might bust out a Daily Prompt post. I might write about a funny situation. I might write about something that happened to me long ago. Or I might write about suicide, depression, or abuse. There aren’t many topics from which I’ll shy away.
I’m a Star Wars nerd. I realize you probably already knew that since my avatar is a stormtrooper, but I figured I’d tell you on the off-chance that your dunce-cap prevented you from deducing that. I have two entire bookshelves dedicated to displaying my Star Wars nerdiness. The bookshelves are filled with books (duh), collectibles, and toys. I also have a few framed pictures that hang on the wall above the bookshelves. I was slightly out of control for a while, but I’m recovering fine now, thanks.
I like to play most sports, but the only sports I truly follow are NFL and NCAA football, and even so I haven’t been doing it all that religiously the older I get. Since I spent my formative years growing up in a suburb of Cincinnati, I’m a Bengals fan. Please pity me. I also root for my hometown team, though. I’d love for the Lions to be a great team again. Yeah, I know. Both of my teams suck.
My collegiate team of choice is the Michigan Wolverines, because, obviously, I’m from Michigan. Also, Kentucky’s football program sucks so I never had any reason to root for them. But that’s okay, at least I root for one team that consistently wins.
I started this blog as a project. I was dabbling around and seeing if I could create a web-server. I couldn’t really think of anything to do with my web-server so I started a blog, just to see if I could. I successfully created and hosted my own website and blog, until my ISP shut me down. Evidently, my ISP frowns upon me self-hosting a site without paying a premium rate to do so.
What I found while I was running this self-hosted blog for the two-months I ran it before it was shut down was that I like to write. So once my site was shut down I imported all of my posts to WordPress and continued blogging. Once on WordPress, I found an entire community of great bloggers, and writers, and have made some pretty good blogging buddies.
I’m truly glad to have discovered blogging and even more so that people actually read what I write now.
