I'm such a MAVERICK!

I haven't dressed up in honor of Halloween for years but felt inspired this year. Sarah Palin...a historical step for the United States...a woman in the vice president candidacy? Wow. Too bad most of what she does is embarrass herself. Here's me- as her, gettin well as the top 5 stupid things she's busted out with.

"I like being here because it seems like here and in our last rally too -- other parts around this great Northwest -- here in New Hampshire you just get it." --Sarah Palin, Laconia, New Hampshire, Oct. 15, 2008

"They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan." --Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, Oct. 5, 2008

"All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years." --Sarah Palin, unable to name a single newspaper or magazine she reads, interview with Katie Couric, CBS News, Oct. 1, 2008 (Watch video clip)

"They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska." --Sarah Palin, on her foreign policy insights into Russia, ABC News interview, Sept. 11, 2008

"As for that VP talk all the time, I'll tell you, I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day?" --Sarah Palin, interview with CNBC's "Kudlow & Co", July 2008 (Watch video clip)

I am currently involved in a public speaking group that shall remain nameless. As part of the ritual initiation, they make you do an 'ice breaker' speech. Nothing says good times like standing in front of a group of strangers and talking about yourself for 4-6 minutes for no purpose other than torturing yourself in an effort to become immune to the torture.

Point being, its the first speech you give---and this is my first attempt at blogging. The difference is vast, I have always loved writing and in our fast paced world, this seems like an efficient way to not only get the ramblings out of my head and noodled onto paper, but also as a way to keep in touch with family and friends that I might not have the time to correspond with.

With the exception of my grandma, everyone will have access to this online journal of sorts and I know you all are clamoring to know what is new and exciting with me. So hold on my dear friends---I will blog your mind!
