I was talking on the phone the other night with a good buddy, and the subject of Pinky and the Brain came up. In particular, Brain's ponderings and his never-ending quest to take over the world. I then said, "How cool would it be if we took over the world?" And that somehow made me start thinking about my new blog. It's occured to me that in a very small, bizarre way, the existence of my blog can be seen as my first step in world domination. I just don't know if I'm ready for that kind of commitment.
