A decision has been made. Well, in truth lots of decisions have been made. In fact one was made the second you clicked on the link to open this post. Perhaps I should have opened with "another decision has been made?" Nah, would have taken down the impact of this decision. Sure, it's not quite as big a decision as asking someone to marry you or deciding to tell your friend that you voted for the other party in the last election, but importance is relative. So without further ado, here was mine: I'm pregnant. Wait, no, not that one. Damn. I'm really bad at this. My hands, they're all shaky and sweaty, and I think my voice raised two octaves (on the plus side now I can be in The Nutcracker this Christmas - win).
Alright, no more fooling around. Here it is. From now on not everything I write here will be about movies...
...damn, I should have stuck with the pregnant story shouldn't I? I knew this would be awkward. Look, it's not you, it's me. I love movies, always have, I'm just running out of things to write about with them. Well, at least engaging content that doesn't boil down to me just posting trailers and writing uninspired reviews. I don't want that. Never have. I want my blog to be a fun and mentally engaging place. A place where you can exercise your mind and slyly giggle at my dry and off kilter sense of humor (see above paragraphs).
This is my ongoing effort to build on top of that. So, what will I write about? Who knows. It may be television, science, news stories, maybe even a bit o' politics (though you'd all have to promise you won't de-evolve into cnn commentators on issues), and just random stuff off the top of my head.
Before I wrap up this post let me just say the primary focus of this blog will remain movies. I just want to branch out a couple of days of the week. And for the sake of simplicity I'll try to keep those days relatively similar so you all have the option and knowledge to avoid my blog should you find yourself waning in interest upon those alternate topics.
So I hope you all stick around as I venture out into various fields and pop in my two cents every now and again. Thank you all for everything you've brought this blog, and me, over the years and I hope to keep making it a must stop shop for your reading pleasure!
