my first real blog post

If you are reading this , then welcome to my blog. I am not sure what(if anything) will come of this but it is something that has been suggested for me to look into. For some reason, Christine, a very VERY dear friend of mine seems to like my writing. If you like it give her the credit, if not then blame me. Anyways, I am only a couple of minutes in and I get the feeling this could become addicting.

This is my very first post(not counting the test test one) and I can't help sitting here thinking that I have just found a new way of talking to myself for all intents and purposes. As a 37 year old male I cant help laugh at the way things have gone. I have always been one to talk to myself .......One way or another damnit I HAD to find someone that agrees with me at least SOMETIMES!

I can remember a time as a young boy in the late 70's/early 80's when I would catch myself talking to myself and think to some degree that man I was looooony .

There have been numerous times when i am just chatting away with myself in the car driving down the road or stopped at a red light and look over to see someone in the next car staring directly at me. Obviously enough, I invariably, and immediately begin to act like i was singing not talking.

Then around the late 80's early 90's I revised my thinking because people (or maybe it wasn't REALLY people but just me) said: "it is okay to talk to yourself as long as you don't answer".

With the new millennium I once again revised my thinking and joked......Okay BD, it is okay to talk to yourself,,,,hell you can even ANSWER yourself,,,,but if you ever start to interrupt yourself Promise me/us that you will order the fancy white jacket with the buckles in the back yourself!

Fast forward to today(January 5th 2006) and fortunately I still don't interrupt myself (well okay not often at least)but here I am as I type this and I can't help laughing and thinking,,,,'yep I have found a new way to talk to myself. Technology continues to amaze and I guess being able to not only talk to myself, not only answer myself, not even only be able to interrupt myself but to be able to Talk to myself and do so while typing!!!!!! Wow,,,,i guess that has to be labeled as 'progress' LOL......

So, if you happen to pull up beside a grey mustang in Jacksonville florida, and the male occupant is talking to himself judge him not. I am errrrrrr He(HE) is singing damnit!

Speaking of progress I have decided to change the name of my blog from Brilliantdonkey to BriliantDonkey with only one L. Sorry, but irony, along with comedy, puns and the like are some of my very favorite things. Therefore,the irony of misspelling the word brilliant is just too much to be able to pass up. That is about it for now. It is 3 am and if i don't get to bed soon i will have to change the name yet again to something like 'ohshitimgonna hate myself in the morning' blog.Till next time if there is a next time, take it easy,

Hey Rob,

We just wanted to congratulate you on the new blog. My only complaint about it is that when i come to read it i sometimes already know what it is going to say for some reason. hrrrrrmph!

But YAY! I'm still happy you started your own blog. Congrats! I look forward to more of your looniness and sarcasm and wit on here. Happy blogging! :)
