Well, I decided it was time to jump on the bandwagon. I mean, if my cousins can juggle childrearing and blogging, then what is my excuse? If this is how we are going to keep in touch as a family, then I think it’s time for me to get with the times, and stop lurking as a commenter on other people’s blogs. I mean, I may not have any cute children to offer pictures of, but maybe my single, urban life can offer some nugget of amusement for those of you who have moved on with your adult lives.
Not that this is my first attempt at blogging. At various points in my life I have tried to start a blog, only to fall prey to my natural shyness. I never let anyone read any of my previous efforts, and I think that was ultimately what brought me down – lack of accountability. With no audience besides myself, there was nobody to make me feel guilty for failing to post.
So there it is. May you find some entertainment value to my abundant social awkwardness, my travails on public transportation, my adventures in the kitchen, and my random musings on life in general.
(And for the record, I took the title of my blog from a song by Belle and Sebastian, my favorite band. You should check them out.)
