A Sign of the End Times

As a sort of an experiment, I guess (and also because I know so little about social networking) I’ve signed up for Twitter. I don’t know whether I’ll actually use it, but I guess we’re going to find out. My user name is @JohnWAllie (assuming you’re supposed to type that at-symbol?) if you want to follow me or whatever it is people do with Twitter. (As you can see, I’m quite vague on the exact function here.) Get off my lawn, pesky kids!

Empire Falls by Richard Russo was a good book for me to read, because it’s well-written, but not so incredibly genius (read: Margaret Atwood) that it made me feel like giving up. Instead it tended more to inspire me to think that in time, I might be able to produce something equally good.

Still, the more I think about it (and I am still thinking about it) the more I see how ingeniously it was put together. I would certainly recommend it.

First Post!

This is it, folks… the first post on this new highly official blog of mine. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to use this for yet, but hopefully it will be an interesting experience for everyone involved. At the very least it will get me to update the site more often. Onward!
