What is this blog about?
This blog is about my experiences with technology, and my (often warped) views on same. Sometimes I’ll talk about games, sometimes a gadget, and sometimes I’ll talk about something interesting I’ve come across. Interesting to me, that is. I shamelessly admit that I might sometimes drift away from technology and talk about something entirely different.
Secondly, I want to improve my writing skills. I used to write a journal, and various stories/etc regularly, but I’ve been out of practice for a while. Until I find my ‘voice’ again, I make no warranty as to the quality of the writings or thoughts here.
Actually, even after I find my voice, I make no warranty, representations or other legal words.
“Hot-Pink Monkey Socks”?!
The mundane explanation for the name is that I once had a pair of socks (now long gone as I wore them to death). They were almost hot pink (close enough that the eyes weren’t going to quibble – they were too busy trying to hide), and they were covered with cute cartoon monkeys. Of course, I called them my “hot-pink monkey socks”.
In a sensible world things would end there, but some phrases seem to resonate – to have a pleasing sound or rhythm. The phrase “hot-pink monkey socks” resonated enough with me that for a while I used it as my store name at CafePress (defunct, as I ran out of time to create new designs). When I was searching for a name for my blog, it again rose to the top of my consciousness.
And now I’m inflicting it on you. No need to thank me.
