As I wrote the following entry, I realized how much of my writing consisted of useless asides. I decided to separate out the useless (although, in my simple mind, quite humorous) parentheticals, and present only the raw, boring, innane essay musing. Enjoy!
(I'm still working on a longer essay filled with even more asides. I have no E.T.A. on finishing it, but I did put in a few good hours last night. Here's a hoping I can keep with it.)
