I have a bad habit of not doing what people tell me I should do. It's as if because I didn't think it up on my own then the idea must be flawed in some way that only I am perceptive enough to realize. Clever shit that I am, I've probably missed out on a lot of lucrative and personally gratifying experiences thanks to my little character trait. Then again, I didn't get caught up in the whole housing bubble thing so it's probably a wash.
I have always thought of myself as being writerly (I thought I made this word up but it's real) and have reams of half written story ideas and musings littering my personal archives. Those would be the dozen odd shoeboxes stacked in the back of my closet. What if I could find a less space consuming way to organize my addled mind? Is there anyway technology can help me out with this?
My friend Jenny is one of the funniest people I know and she is a fantastic writer besides being beautiful and a snappy dresser. She has one of the best blogs in the entire world at http://jennysays-hellofools.blogspot.com/ . I read her Toolbag Tuesday every Tuesday or early Wednesday at the latest and I encourage everyone who hasn't yet to please check it out. Anyways, I was at an oyster roast she and her sister Joy threw at their house last week and somewhere between my eighth and ninth beer and after at least fifty oysters she told me I should start a blog. I thought it was a great idea.
So, here is the first submission to Matt Wire's Deep End. Ideally, this is supposed to be a funny blog with funny stories but I called it the Deep End because I want to cover a lot of subjects whether they be philosophical or political or sophomoric. The whole gambit of the human experience is what I'm going for. My mission statement is everything. That's not too broad. Thanks Jenny!
