The First Post

Since this is the very first post of what will no doubt become a world-renowned blog, one feels a certain pressure to make it count. However, as I am already equipped for the levels of fame and fortune that no doubt await me, let's just get down to brass tacks.


I am 26, moderately broke, and have no strong skills in any particular area. But I like to do things. So while this is not the blog to admire beautiful people who somehow also know how to inexplicably DIY a fucking skyscraper, this is the blog to get some ideas for projects you can actually accomplish and activities you can probably afford.

To be totally honest up front, you'll also probably find that I write a lot about pizza, Chicago, getting less fat while continuing to eat pizza, and a smattering of things here and there.

Here's hoping this turns into a long and fruitful relationship, and not the kind where we see each other at the grocery store and you shop tensely, hoping aisle by aisle that we won't run into each other and have to make small talk.

cheers,
z

  4. I was going to say .... how the hell did I not notice you had a blog?! then I realized it's brand spankin' new. I wish I knew you were so super crafty or I would have suggested to Twenties Hacker that you do the craft column. The girl who is doing it is much less entertaining.
