Yassoo Nafti’s!

Yassoo Nafti’s! That’s ‘Hello Sailor’ in Greek, to those of you not in the know.

So, here I am. Clueless, as usual as to what the hell is going on. Not really sure what I am going to write about, but I am able to talk freely and extensively with relative ease, so I am hoping that this writing malarchy will come with just as much grace as the verbal. I spent much of my youth writing inane drivel in a diary, so I hope to replicate some of that in this here blog.

I have been thinking about writing for quite some time now, still stuck on the topic of what to write about. I spoke to my dear friend Ralph about it, him being an experienced blogger himself. A lunchtime meeting was scheduled to discuss the setting up of said blog, that and to celebrate my recent 30th birthday. A little was done, but it was mostly spent drinking and jotting a list of how I could capture my mini-obsession at that time. My favourite option being branding him as a sex-offender slash paedophile, hoping no-one else would want him – so he could be mine.

Good at lists and planning.

Fortunately (in this instance), not so good at delivering results from lists and plans.

Anyway, I have moved on from that mini-obsession.

I’m single by the way. Weird that.

Aaaaanyway. So. I like writing and I like words. One of my new favourite current words is ‘cup’ and established favourite words include ‘skulduggery’, ‘hammer’, and ‘compartmentalise’. I like over-egging things to the point of utter annoyance to everyone around me (…please… read on…), maize snacks (current favourite – Co-Op onion ring), eggs (poached) and being a music snob and stereo whore.

There is lots more to me than just the above, and those who already know me, I sincerely hope they concur. In the same respect, I am aware that my blog should have some sort of ‘point’ or something like that. I am still not sure what that is. At the moment, that ‘point’ is going to be me being me, and writing about what I see, what I think and what I hear. I was keen to just go full steam ahead and write something. I have a tendancy to stall, so these posts will either cease, or hopefully get better. I am open to suggestions on topics, and I think this blog should have the option to comment etc. My dear old dad helped me with this, as my skills in that department are pretty poor.

If I could have sex with any bit of punctuation, it would be the trusty question mark. It’s nice to get these things out in the open now.
