Fast-forward to the Autumn of 2004. Despite having heard about or read (actually skimmed over) articles about blogs, I never went near any until Bill O'Reilly mentioned Little Green Footballs during the CBS memo scandal. I logged on (actually, early the next morning; unable to connect because of all the traffic Bill must have generated). I was fascinated.
Then, instead of watching the news to laugh at silly people, I found humor blogs like IMAO and RightWing Duck. I was hooked!
But, like any kid in the toy aisle at K-Mart[shameless link - buy stuff], I wanted one, too.
So now I got one. BFHD.
Oh, in case you're wondering about the title of this post ("42"), my insane ramblings went this way:
I got a blog! Great! Now what? I need to post something. Something funny? It would help if I was funny. Something profound? It would help if I was profound. Something... what? Why did I do this? Why am I here? Why are we all here? What does it all mean? What's the meaning of life? What's the answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything?And then I had my title.
