Start

I think I'll skip the standard "I'm starting a blog" post and jump right in. If you can't tell this is the start of a blog, then I don't want you reading my blog.

I'll be starting law school in the fall, and I've been thinking about how that's going to work out, so I went back to the early days of Buffalo Wings & Vodka to see how he went about it. At about this point in his law school career he said

When I was in high school there was this guy in my English class that I would have sworn was retarded but then I was working on some calculus in there one day and he looked over my shoulder and reexplained the chain rule to me and I realized that the whole retarded thing was just a facade that helped him get chicks and avoid being called on. I would very much like to be the law school version of that guy.
That sounds like a decent philosophy to me, so I'm going to stick with something along those lines. He did a pretty good job, from what I can tell, and I think I can do it too.

I realize, of course, that this opens me up to all kinds of people coming here and saying "I served with Buffalo Wings & Vodka, I knew Buffalo Wings & Vodka, Buffalo Wings & Vodka was a friend of mine. You're no Buffalo Wings & Vodka." Well to you I say, "That was really uncalled for, Senator." Then you can say, "You're the one who was making the comparison," then go on to lose the election and die 18 years later. So I win and get off my case about it.

I recently started my own blog on Blogger and today, I found yours with the random search button. I have to admit that I was guilty of announcing that my blog had begun, but I'm totally amused by the way that you very purposefully skipped a post devoted to stating the obvious.

"If you can't tell this is the start of a blog, then I don't want you reading my blog." -- Touché.
