My name is Kelly and I'm an idiot. There, I said it.
For years the blogging phenomenon has reminded me of the quote, often attributed to Mark Twain, "Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt". Hence I've been following my friend JJ's blog with a bit of curious scepticism. However, the excellent feedback and generally friendly attitude of most of the commenters on his blog has given me the courage to give it a try myself.
I don't really know what I'm going to blog about yet. I do software engineering of all sorts, both professionally and personally, and I've been studying Japanese for almost 6 years. Both of which pretty much consume all of my time. I stopped watching TV about 6 years except as Japanese study practice (channel 26 here in the Bay Area offers a variety of Japanese programming Saturday and Sunday evenings). I haven't listened to radio in almost as long. Which is to say, I'm generally pretty boring.
Oh yeah, and I'm a fool. But you'll see that for yourself.
