I confess to hipsterism or some other fatal disorder; I’m no Luddite but I am hesitant to jump onto popular techy trends. (Although I was writing webpages for www.ucmp.berkeley.edu as early as 1995!) Back circa 2006, I maintained I’d never board the bandwagon and sign up for Facebook, then I relented. Even into the spring of 2011, I was a staunch non-Twitterer, then I caved.
But all along, I’ve maintained I have no great idea for a blog and don’t have time to blog. So here I am. Maybe both those things are still true! But we shall see what crystalizes here…
Aside: the “frigorific” in the Links section is a real word, and refers to extreme coolness. Bear with me. I’m gonna milk the limited set of puns that this blog’s theme relates to, even if only tangentially so. Some freezer-burned puns may result.
In celebration of my first blog post, cue the thematic music! (I am aware of its photographic, not frigorific, context, and there are plenty of alternatives, but I like the celebratory tone here– please sing along while sporting hideously outdated fashion choices!)
Awright, let the Blogging Begin! Hopefully not at a glacial pace… First up: Giraffe-a-Thon! And be sure to check out the “Welcome to My Freezer” tab at the top, for important WIJF information.
