Every once in a while, I feel like I should try and write something worthwhile here, instead of using this as a dumping ground for whatever comes off the top of my head. After all, I allegedly have some skill in writing, analysis, and intelligent thought. But then I realize that there are probably hundreds of blogs where people write about the subjects that might inspire me to do more “serious” blog posts. So nobody is really going to care what I have to say about those topics.
And of course, I’m not so arrogant as to think that anyone really cares what I have to say about the things I **do** write about, either. But it makes me feel better to write those things, and isn’t that what really matters? (Okay, maybe just a little arrogant.) And my profession requires that I write hundreds and hundreds of pages of serious, analytical material as it is. So I need an outlet for the more inane things rattling around in my head. Perhaps it’s beneath someone of my supposed skill and education, but hey, this isn’t a law review, and it’s not an appellate court. I can’t be “on” all the time. It’s not like surgeons come home and perform surgery for fun.
And after the rather crappy week I had last week, I’ll be needing more of an outlet than usual for the inane ramblings rattling around in my head. It’s cheaper than therapy.
