I live in a small cave. It is among the nicer caves I've lived in. Cold refrigerator, warm bed, internet on demand. Close to the "real" world. But it's still a cave. The fellow cavers are a wonderfully weird group (who have nice caves) that I thoroughly enjoy. But in the heart of Winter, it is still a cave.
Tomorrow is the annual stupor bowl party. I shall celebrate like a normal. Beer and munchies shall be consumed. My only reason to root for one side is political, as I've never lived in the midwest. I will root for the Bears only because Peyton Manning has always been a major fund raiser for Shrub and his cronies. Does it really matter who wins?
I'm a political junkie, but even I'm burning out on the early presidential campaign. Over a year until the first primary (schedule subject to change) and the posturing is already beyond belief. I'll be glad when someone other that Shrub is in the white house, but I'm beginning to dislike every one of the declared candidates. All the poll tested campaign statements are varieties of vanilla. Outside of Kucinich (who won't be elected, trust me), no one is going to offer anything dramatically different or controversial. So how should I keep my sanity in the face of 21 months of pablum?

Okay, the blog does exist. I now find myself wondering "will anybody notice?" given the brazillions of blogs out there. If you stumble upon this lowly blog, I'd appreciate if you would add a comment about how you found it and what you think. I read a lot of (much better) blogs that seem to generate a lot of conversation, and I hope that over time there will be a few folks who chat here. So tell me why you're here!
