Well, at least I'm still not on myspace

And so I have become one of those people; a Blogger. Urgh.

Getting this together has not been a swift process, and not only because I am so cripplingly e-tarded. I pretty much fell at the first hurdle; what name do I give to my blog?

This is important stuff, and after not really thinking about it very much at all for a few days, I resolved to create a long(ish) list of potential titles from which to choose. Naturally, only one was going to make it to the final cut; but a great many others were easily discounted for either sounding a bit too much like the name of an emo/hardcore fanzine, being blatant Radiohead lyrics, or in at least one case sounding like the title of a porn film. Here are the ones that didn't make it.
  • Time Heals Nothing
  • Minus One
  • What Happened Next
  • Fitter. Happier
  • The Melancholical Engineer
  • The Ben(ds)
  • Gravity Always Wins
  • Mea Maxima Culpa
  • Never To Be
  • Stalker's Remorse
  • Angstroneering
  • Pig Brittle
  • Naturally, It All Went Horribly Wrong
  • Loose Ends
Then of course a good few hours were lost as I attempted to create a profile which would make me seem witty, intelligent and debonair, but without making it look like I was really trying; or, more specifically, trying and failing. Plus another hour of attempting to attach a photo (there's that e-tardedness I was talking about).

Only then did I realise that a blog probably ought to have some kind of content; and all I had was a list of rubbish names for a blog...
