As an unreliable and not-entirely-necessary contributor to the Fabakis Blog, I would like to offer my first (and often wrong or unintelligibly articulated) impressions of the most meaningless thoughts that occur to me through the remainder of my existence. Or, the duller part of my office day.

If I can’t think of anything like that, then I guess I’ll just make an attempt at well collected ideas and drafted social commentary pertinent to the parlance of our apocalyptic and post-redemptive era. Also known at the latter half of 2008.

Things that are ultimately not important to know about me, but I believe are necessary for me to post due to the period of my life I am in include:

  •  I own two pairs of nearly identical corduroy pants, but often only wear one for up to two weeks semi-consecutively and adamantly claim that I change the pair I am wearing despite the fact that this is a poor and obvious lie.
  • My probation office has a fine rear.
  • I like coca-cola light better than coca-cola. My mother made me drink diet until I was like fifteen-ish, thus I never acquired a taste for coca-cola for the most part.
  • I run an underground and highly legal senior lawn bowling league on Tuesdays.

In conclusion, dig (slang for look below friend) some of the more material projects of art I find describe me during the first three years of my life, a brief period in sixth grade when I shaved my head, the end of eighth grade, most of high school, minus the times longer than two weeks in which I was sorta happy, and minus when I played any organized sport besides dodge ball and soccer (futbol to our latin american and chilean readers), and the last fifteen months. Don’t judge me. Judge my taste. Call me shallow, but these things are important.
