To begin the beguine

Welcome to my first blog post! No, that’s crap. Ahem…GOOD MORNING VIETNAM! Crap too.
How do you start a blog?

I was once told that, to write a blog is to put your thoughts onto the Internet and let the Internet have its way with them. I’ve also been told that it’s a narcissistic outlet, thinking that people actually care about what you have to say. So I am promising that none of the above will relate to this blog. I am also promising that that statement is a lie!

So let us first have a look at the blog scene. The word ‘blog’ is a derivative of the words ‘web log’. Great Scott, I have the perfect way to start it.

Captains Blog, Star Date 2013. Nope that’s also crap (mainly because its Trekkie and I feel dirty quoting The Trek)

So back to the point at hand. A blog, to me, is a collaboration of thoughts and ideas that one wishes to put down on virtual paper. Much like a diary, but for the whole world to see. So we have to be careful with what we say! For those of you who know me, I have NO idea how to do that. One clear example is as follows:

One night, after a lovely evening at a friend’s house, a friend of mine was about to leave when she realized that her car had been stolen! We all rushed out to find an empty spot where her car stood. One of the first comments of condolence she heard was my voice saying “Well, at least you don’t have to worry about petrol for a while”. The slap to my face was a clear indication that she did not agree with my ‘silver lining’ outlook of her situation.

As we can see, I do have a problem with keeping my mouth shut in certain situations. Many more proud moments include laughing at funerals (because a dead leg at a funeral is more than mere coincidence…it’s comedy) and many, many ‘I told you so’ moments. I would like to insert a quote here, purely because there is this nifty little quote button.

If more people would listen to me and realize I am right, the world would be a happier place. – Me

So we shall see how that turns out.

Back to blogging. I don’t really know why I am doing this. It’s probably going to turn out to be extensions and explanations of various Facebook status updates and maybe a game review (also known as YOU NEED TO PLAY THIS GAME) but that would be a moment thing.

I was thinking of doing a paragraph of Who Is Chris. But the fact that the only people who will probably read this are people who know me, I will leave that out.

I suppose this shall do for a blog post. I have yet to figure out how to put in pictures ( I am doing this on WordPress’ pretty cool app on my iPad) and so I would like you to close your eyes (not now…let me explain first)…close your eyes and imagine the most amazing pictures, images and emotionally moving clips of cats…and that is my blog. The begin of the beguine!
