Morally Obligated to Blog

OK... so 2 friends of mine I happen to work with started blogging. When the first dude got his blog site up and was like "Hey, go look at my cool blog site - it's the coolest, yo" I just made fun of him. Behind his back. Alot. (What was his URL again? epd9k.blogdork.com? epd9k.blognerd.net? epd9k.getafreakinlifeblog.gov? I had a hard time remembering at the time.)

However, despite my best attempts to dismiss this whole "blog" thing off as a passing phase, it doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon. When friend/coworker #2 joined in the blog ring, it began to sink in for me - it was invevitable; I was doomed to follow. Basically, it was either jump in or become ostrasized... Their furtive glances and muttered words were already singling me out as 'the un-blogger,' 'the anti-blog,' 'the white infidel,' and 'unclean.' If you cut me, do I not bleed? Eh? Fellas? Fellas?

Honestly, my friendship with these dudes may have been in jeopardy had I not started the very blog you, Esteemed Reader, are now reading. I would not hesitate to go so far as to say that, given the circumstances, I was morally obligated to start this blog.

So, here I am, rockin' you like a hurricane. And to make amends to epd9k for making so much fun of him (alot... behind his back...) I am paying tribute by choosing the same blog template layout has he did. Sort of.
