Longest 24 Years Of My Life
It has been brought to my attention that
you nosy people the 3 people who read my blog would like to know more about me. Well, that’s just too dang bad – I’m going stealth – none of you will ever know my true identity.
Okay, that’s a lie and not only because I think anonymous blogging is dumb in the absence of supremely defined motives (i.e. blogging about more important things than I ramble about here) – it’s also a lie because I litter my Twitter (email my manager about pricing for white, female rapper appearances) with links to this in the hopes my friends inside the internet will materialize into typing fingers.

Not really what you were hoping for? Too bad, this timeline was for me as much as it was for you. So, if you don’t read it
screw you! Get off my @$(*&@! blog I won’t be hurt and you can stop feeling bad about it. I just know you were feeling bad about it.
Alright readers, I want to know what made you who you are. You don’t have to be as wordy as me, I get to do that because it’s my blog – See: It’s My Blog and I’ll Be Boring If I Want To – but just introduce yourself! I really want to get to know my readers. Just say hello so I can print this out for my mother to hang on her fridge as proof that someone occasionally listens to things I say.
