I've been told that I'm incapable of being boring. Here I chronicle my adventures of simply living, and may my words never dull anyone. For I have a high non-boring standard to live up to!

Ohh doggy!

There are a lot of strange things that happen as you grow to expand your beliefs and knowledge. For example, I can't say I ever expected to own a dog.
