A combination of having all your favourite sites (/., cartoons, etc) all in one place, and the fact the most of my friends now have blogs here basically meant that it made no sense *not* to have an account. God knows what waffle I'm going to be polluting the airwaves with now, but what's done is done.
One condition - if at any point you note any hint of whinging, whining, self-pity or anything of this ilk, do be the first to slap me down. Whilst I may have turned to blogging, I still have standards. ;)
