New in Town

Well, it looks like I finally did it. After putting it off for ages and making half-hearted promises, I've finally created my own blog.
But as Planet Earth is supposedly known in another dimension: Now What? (Readers of Mostly Harmless know what I'm talking about)
Assuming you've read this far instead of, as at least one person has assured me you will do, giving me up as a lost case, you're probably wondering about a couple of things. Who am I? What exactly do I intend to acheive with this blog? Did I leave the tap running in the bathroom? And so on.
To answer your first question, I'm no one. Well, no one important. Just a guy who likes to write. 'Nuff said.
As for what I intend to acheive, one word: squat. If you're looking for something of high literary value, or some awe-inspiring photographs I claim to have taken while climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro when in fact I just did a quick Google search, you're probably not gonna find it. This blog contains exactly what it's supposed to. Random by-products.
There are times when I'm minding my one business when an idea chooses to strike me about the head in a rather violent fashion. Nothing groundbreaking, just an idle thought which probably wouldn't make much sense to anyone other than myself. Or a rabid baboon. Po-tay-to Po-tah-to. Soon, this idea takes root until I have something that makes me go "Huh. Weird." And that is exactly what I intend to put down. Whatever the hell seems to have caught my fancy at this particular point of time. Random by-products. If I DO happen to write something of great meaning, you can rest assured that it was purely incidental. Which is not to say I won't take credit for it.
However, you will probably find a few subjects I happen to rant about rather often. Food. Music (especially the Beatles). And a bunch of other stuff I am, alas, far too lazy to put down.  Oh well, you'll find out yourself.
So that's it. I've introduced myself, probably bored you to death in the process and I'm ready to begin. A word of caution, though. I'm not very regular, so I won't have something to say everyday or week or within any regular time-frame. But I'll try to stay consistent.
Oh, and the answer to your third question is "Yes you have. The ceiling should start leaking any time now."
