I think I am ready

It is time for me to start blogging. I have a week off from work and nothing to do. I must admit that I am a bit nervous about the whole thing. However, I am thinking about how much I love reading my brother's blog and I want to give that pleasure to others. OK, so I guess the next step is gathering ideas for topics... here is a list of ideas that I am tossing around. However it is important to note that these early blogs will dictate the tone of all of my future blogging and therefore I must choose my topics carefully...

1. The idea of human perfection and how all parents think they deserve nothing less than a "perfect baby"
2. My father's inabilty to contol the horrible gagging/vomiting noise he makes
3. My cats and how cute they look in clothes
4. veganism and pizza
5. veganism and shoes
6. society's perception of disabilities
7. shopping and my distaste for it
8. my recent puzzle sucess
9. high school friends
10. issues over how hot the house should be kept
11. Christmas

Ok folks cast your votes on what you what to read about. Otherwise I think I will just go down the list.

Definitely #3, but only if you include pictures.

Pictures of #2 would provide a pleasant visual to go with your lovely description...

#10 is the only one I'd vote against. I'd have to say that room temperature is not only the most discussed topic at my workplace, but also the least interesting; yet everyone acts like their own particular body temperature is an item of interest. I just don't get it. I'd much rather talk about whether or not it is true that cilantro tastes like soap to you if you're allergic to it. But every time someone bemoans the low setting on the faculty room humidifier, my segue to soapy cilantro has gone over like a sack of bricks....

Oh, dear. I don't think this is helping. Anyhow, welcome to blog world. I'm glad to have something new to read! Just try not to get TOO sucked in. :)

I vote for #1, 2, 6, 7.

Things I hear enough about: #3, 4 (unless good recipes are provided that do not include barbeque sauce), 5, 8, 10.

Things that sound potentially interesting: #11

Things that sound boring: #9

Yay! I look forward to your prodigious blogging, stoneballs. I think any of the topics you mention above could make for good blog entries (with the possible exception of the bodily noise-related ones). I dont want a full blown dissertation on #5, but I am curious to find there is any connection whatsoever between veganism and shoes (other than perhaps avoiding shoes made out of animal byproducts). I think you may find that the subjects you are most passionate about differ from the topics that are the most readable. The subjects that I am most passionate about inevitably devolve into unreadable rants.
