I'm sorry, world. I know you're obsessed with those little blue gems - sticking them into drinks, baked goods, fruit bowls, salads, cereals... but I just can't love them like you do. That's right, I hate blueberries. They're weird and sour and their skin is leathery and tough. Every year, when they're in season, I buy them for my kids. Every year I tell myself they're not so bad. Every year, I try one, and it's just as gross as it was last year. Either it's icky and sour, or completely tasteless. Either way, I just can't appreciate them the way the world seems to. So please, stop suggesting I put them in my smoothies, pies, and muffins. Also, you can keep your blackberries. They smell amazing, and I like the juice, but they are so seedy that I just can't stand to eat them. Avocados, artichokes, tofu - these things I can handle; when it comes to tiny dark berries, I just can't do it.

What the heck is "Violet Greens?" I really don't know. I was staring at the "Enter a name for your blog" thing... let's put it this way. I pity my children, because they will never know the joys of having a unique name for anything unless it's completely unpronounceable. Anyway, I was thinking about things I like, and I thought about violets, and how the little buggers are growing everywhere right now. Of course, we just mowed over ours, so there's nothing there but the leaves. So I named it after that, because it was just something that popped into my head.

Yeah, I'm not really sure myself. I've started and destroyed blog after blog. I tried blogging on our home server, but some jerk hacked into it and wiped out our database. Enthusiasm swept away once again. So here I am, back on blogger, trying out a new place to tap out things that come to me. Do I have a theme for this blog, a topic? No, not really. I think that's what was limiting me before was that I had days that I just didn't feel like discussing whatever topic I had allocated. So, no topic. I'm just going to type out whatever I feel like. Maybe it'll be deep and thoughtful. Maybe it'll be about nothing in particular, or really weird or something. I don't know. The important thing is to start, and to try. I might point out at this time that I never finish anything. Speaking of which, I've got about a half dozen projects I should probably be working on instead... but more on that another time.
