I just found out that this blog is listed as one of the "Top 50 Blogs for Anthropologists" - number 50, in fact. I have to admit that this comes as something of a shock. So much so that my face was flushed and I was maybe a little light-headed when I found out. That means that someone out there actually reads what I'm writing.
So, in light of my newfound popularity, I promise to make an effort to think about what I say before I post it. I'll try to stick to more anthropologically relevant subjects. I may even post the occasional retraction.
Oh, who am I kidding? This blog is pure catharsis for me. It may make me a piss-poor anthropologist, but people annoy me. Life annoys me. It can be absurd and pointless, but we keep on keepin' on and this blog helps me do that; hopefully without hurting anyone in the process.
So, thanks to those of you that read my incoherent ramblings. I mean that - no sarcasm or anything. And now that I know someone is paying attention, I'll try to post a bit more regularly. It's just that sometimes people annoy so much that, at the end of the day, all I can do is rock back and forth in the fetal position for an extended period of time.
