I’d like to address an issue that my sister brought up during the holidays. We were watching some of her old NASCAR tapes when the subject of my blog came up. She was concerned that the contents of my blog was perhaps giving people the wrong impression of me. I asked her how this could be. She replied that my self-deprecating humour, while amazingly funny, might lead people to believe I was a fraction of the person I am. She was especially concerned that people who didn’t know me very well might read my blog and think I was some sorta loser. Of most importance, was how desirable females might view me because of my blog.
I thanked her for her concern and was touched my lovely sister was looking out for her big brother. I told her that I hadn’t really thought about this. Most people who read my blog usually have interacted with me at length and already have an extremely good idea of the type of person I am. I expect my readers not to use my blog to fill an empty canvas to determine who I am.
While this blog is certainly about my life, it is a filtered view of my life. I determine what goes into the blog and how I go about writing it. When you’ve been in showbiz as long as I have, you come to understand what entertains and what doesn’t. My goal when I write to this thing is to inform and to entertain. I could do this a number of ways, but the way I’ve chosen is to find humour in the things that happen in my life. I think my blog would be way less interesting if I wrote about how way cool I was in every post. I honestly don’t think I short-change myself when I write these posts. Just to be to be sure though, in a rare one time event, I will give you ample evidence that I don’t have some distorted, negative image of myself. So here goes, you may want to pop a tape in the machine or TIVO this…
Yes, I understand I’m a decent and kind fellow, who for the most part, makes my parents very proud. I am not a dummy and I nearly have a graduate degree in engineering (just two more months to go). I do have a razor sharp wit and a great sense of humour that I inherited from my mother. I know where to get a decent haircut and am willing to spend a few extra $$$ to get it. I’ve been told I’m a pretty good dresser and I for sure will not turn up inappropriately dressed for your wedding. I like to take care of myself physically (without being fanatical about it) and play sports year round.
I’ve received some positive comments about the girth of my penis. When I feel passionate about something, you can count on me to take action. I have a strong sense of what is right and wrong, and will speak up if I feel I need to. The fact that I feel so lucky to have all of you as friends tells me I’m doing something right in this life.
Ok, that’s enough, I feel really weird writing all of that. Bleh! I swear to you, you won’t be reading anything like that from me from now on. Woo-hoo! Back to your regularly scheduled programming!
