This is way late but Swine tasked me with listing five reasons I blog. I'd twist that a little and say I blog because it combines five things I really enjoy doing-
1) Spending time on the computer rather than doing the dishes.
2) Spouting off about the topics of the day.
3) Being a smart ass about those same topics.
4) Listening to the sound of my own voice. In print.
5) Digging through the IMDB looking for the perfect quote to go with what I've written.
