I'm not going to lie: I've always been weird. I've always had a unique way of looking at the world that people find funny because A) it actually is funny, B) they think it's funny that I think things like that, or C) they think I'm being ironic in the pseudo-intellectual way.

I've never been afraid to say what I think, either. Even if it's taboo or inappropriate. The only way I edit myself is I try not to be mean to someone who doesn't deserve it. The good news is, I don't really have to do that because I usually don't think mean things about nice people anyway, because I myself am a nice person.

And all of these things about me have always been things about me and probably always will. But here's the thing: quitting smoking (which I highly recommend) has brought them out more. All the energy I put into chain smoking in bars and at my computer can now be focused to my mind -- like it was back when I was a kid, before I ever started smoking. And I was a really interesting kid. So, yeah. Most of this stuff is going to be dumb, but you know what? Dumb can be good for the soul if it's in the right doses.

(In other words: this is a coping outlet that we can all enjoy together. Yay!)
