And so it begins...

Welcome to my blog!  I've finally decided to pull the trigger on this little enterprise, and all of you reading this post are clearly early-adopters, willing to gamble on a brand new experience.  Ground floor, and all that, and for that I'm grateful.

A little bit about the blog, and by association, myself.  The blog is not what I would refer to as "high concept".  That is to say, I don't have a hook or some specific subject that will be explored ad nauseum (like, say, a blog about off-color fire hydrants in Midwestern cities ending in "o".  Don't laugh, it's out there...).  More, as the title suggests, this is about what I'm observing at any given moment.  Riffs on pop culture, suburban life, cooking, book/TV/movie reviews, and light commentary on current events. 

In short, water-cooler and lunch table talk.

It will take awhile to find our bearings, and as a result I'm sure the content will meander a bit.  But honestly that's how my thought processes work, and a little meandering is good for the soul, right?



  1. Looking forward to more, Jon. You and my husband, Don, would get along so well!

  2. You're my first-ever commenter! You exclamation point, a piece of punctuation I seldom use (see it up there? the rarity makes it valuable). Thanks.
