Last night I vomited in my mom’s driveway. As the partly digested mashed potatoes, cabbage and corned beef passed my lips, little did I realize I would soon be struck with the urge to restart this blog, which, when I look back at it, was a fucking awesome blog.
In January I started a blog called Working Dogma over at True/Slant, the blogger network featuring Matt Taibbi. In a cheap ploy for kudos, I wrote a self-congratulatory post about science as “a resource for inspiring myself and others to get off our asses and create a better world.” Ugh, right? As usual, I didn’t think very far ahead. The only subjects I have any expertise in are the universe and myself (or what I like to call the Minkelsphere). A blog about world-changing science is gonna require one hell of a lot of research and reporting on the front end. In other words, I was setting myself up to fail.
It’s time to get back to my roots. I am about bullshit — mine, yours and anyone else’s who’s vying for our eyeballs.
I am about oversharing, sticking my foot in my mouth, backpedaling like a spineless jerk, and then loathing myself for not standing my ground.
So, without further ado, let the fun re-commence.*
