Witty Title Goes Here...

Welcome to my new blog. I promise no consistency in the contents of these posts other than that I thought it was interesting and I expect others might as well. OK, in actuality, I expect that many faithful friends will slog through many a posting that doesn't interest them in the least. But that's what friends do, eh?

So let me get started, and why the hell not kick it off in Swahili?! Sound good?

Karibu, ndugu! Jina lako ni Chris Reid. Habari zenu? Ninasoma Kiswahili. Mimi ninakaa Columbia.

Ok, you don't exactly know what the heck I said, but admit it- its kinda fun to read anyway. You know it is. That's pretty basic stuff, by the way, the stuff you learn in like- oh, I don't know- three weeks of Swahili classes? I would like to point out that if I wrote those sentences in English I would sound like a six-year old. Kwa heri!

No! Friends help you move. But my friends rarely do that! Real Friends help you get rid of those dead bodies you have been pilling up under your house. Okay maybe that is just me.

Its okay Reid. I always thought you sounded like a Six year old.

Ha Ha Ha
