My first blog

Well, I’m finally breaking my blogging virginity – and I expect the experience to be just as awkward and leave me with just as much of an anti-climax, mixed with disorientation and confusion about what’s just happened when it’s over, as when I lost my actual virginity.

What to expect? Hmmmm…. I’m not wanting to overexcite the reader with incredible promises of lyrical delight, only to leave them deflated like a child’s balloon that’s been mistakenly taken by the pet dog as a sex toy.

All I’ll say is that there will be short stories, occasional comedy (disclaimer: this is solely contingent on a subjective interpretation of “comedy”), political musings, bits of what I think counts as news and editorial, and a look at some of the more egregious claims of pseudo-scientists.

Oh, and lot’s of long sentences that would be better served by being broken up with full stops – leaving the reader breathless as they try and keep up. I promise nothing less than an endurance test, and warn smokers and people suffering from asthma not to try and read along.
