Since July is national blog awareness month, I decided to do some research. Guess what. It turns out I have a blog!

I’ve got an excuse for the dry spell, though I’m not sure how good it is. I’ve been working on polishing up a story I started at the Write By the Lake thing a few weeks ago. I’ve screwed it up pretty good, so I think I’ll give it a break now. It was inspired by this house:


It’s about a boy who investigates a house that’s rumored to belong to a witch. But of course, I had to go make it all inner-struggley. The plot is alright, but I’m at that stage where I just need some distance from it. We’ll see. As Chicago (the band) says, “even lovers need a holiday (I had to say) far away from the ones that we love.” Groan. I’m clearly reaching for content here, aren’t I?

As long as I am, I might as well announce some good news: Wisconsin isn’t the fattest state in the country. Really. Check this out: obesity map.

And in other news, Zinedine Zidane, one of the world’s best soccer players, head-butted an Italian player named Marco Materazzi in the World Cup final. But of course, you already knew that. If you are one of the three people who haven’t seen it yet, here it is: Zidane head butt. And just in case you think Materazzi is a “good boy,” as his father calls him, you need to see this footage: Materazzi madness. Or you can just search for Materazzi on YouTube and find out what he’s known for.
