New Blogger, Or How I Fake Like I'm Cool

I am not cool. I am a fusty lady who lives in Hermitage and knits and talks to her dogs. I eat canned bean soup and TiVo Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Dan is cool. Dan and his wife just moved to East Nashville-->where all the cool people live. They love horror movies and Halloween and collect wines. Dan builds fixed-gear bikes (Fixies).

I've known Dan for a lot of years. He used to be a luthier for a local luthier employer. How cool is it to say "luthier"? I would have loved that job, just so I could tell people I was a "luthier". I like hanging out with Dan and his wife because they are great company, a lot of fun and make me feel like I move in an orbit of coolness. Visiting them is like dropping by the Cool Store to get a shot of hipster grooviness.

The one cool thing I've done (stretching the definition of "cool" here, by about 1000 times) is have a blog. That was the only area where I could possibly out hipster Dan.

Not any more. Now Dan has a blog. And wouldn't you know that his blog is cooler than mine?!? I talk about things like stuffed monkeys and old ladies with hats. Dan schedules cycle-beer runs.

So, anyway, check out East Side Cyclist, the blog of my (much cooler) friend.

A: Your new blog format is WAAY cool
B: The fact that you write well is cool
C: Your part of town will soon have light rail service to downtown - (semi-cool)
D: You know lots of cool people (not referring to me, here), but I've seen your 'crowd'

so hey..it works for me.

Your bud's blog is cool as well..

Ain't nothing wrong with Law & Order. Any of them.

What's a luthier?

Thanks, Hutch. I can't take credit for the format. When I decided that it was definitely autumnal enough for me to be tired of looking at the summer pool water, I was also tired enough to not want to design my own template. I gacked this from somewhere. Blogger Templates.blogspot.com I think.

b, I loves me some L&O. A lot. Drives the hubby bonkers.

w, a luthier is a craftsperson who makes stringed instruments.

Well. Sometimes I'm premenstrual. I'm thinking about making a lute. (haha) (how uncool was that?!).

I think you're cool.

And I really like your "gacked" template. Although that sounds like it was kind of painful to do.
