Why You're Reading This, or Welcome To Sarcasm and Lemons!

Welcome to Wonderland, my friends.  Here you’ll find a bunch of words about things that you may or may not care about, and the occasional rabbit in a waistcoat.  I promise.  Before we embark, let’s make a deal.  I will try to be decently entertaining, and you will write lovely little comments that aren’t about my mother’s romantic exploits or a new diet pill that you’re just dying to give away.  (A.k.a. spam me and I will block you, savvy?)  Deal?  Fantastic. 

Let’s call this writing blog “part 2.”  I’ve done the whole thing in the past and it just hasn’t worked out, partly because work has strangly anti-creativity powers and partly because I’m a lazy duck.  So this time around, I’m going to be nice to myself.  Let’s face it.  Promising a blog a day is just the way to overwhelm myself and leave you blogless.  So let’s make it at least a blog a week, and anything extra is icing. 

Why should you trust me, you ask?  Hell if I know.  I mean, hem, because I love writing.  I really do.  I want to be successful at it and if I don’t keep up with it, grad school will eat me.  That would be sad.  And since you can’t seem to make a name for yourself these days without splattering yourself all over the internet, that’s what I’ll do.  Even if it means (*gasp!*) getting a Twitter.  Oh yeah, check that sidebar.  Okay, be nice, so I’m a little old fashioned. 

Now, what can you expect from this blog, you ask?  Here at Sarcasm and Lemons, you’ll find everything remotely related to writing.  Writings (duh), flash fictions, poems of questionable quality, book reviews, excerpts, prompts, and snark.  There will be randomness!  There will be musings!  There will be the odd game or movie review and some drawings that I’ll make you look at because you’re the internet and I don’t have to watch you while you look at it!  GET EXCITED. 

Hem.  I also like an open door policy, so to speak, so if you have a question, then comment/email/tweet it to me and you shall be answered!  Unless your question is gross or I don’t know the answer, in which case you shall be given links to pictures of fuzzy puppies!  (If you’re lucky, you may get an answer AND links to fuzzy puppies!) 

So by now you’ve figure out that this post has no content except for, “Hi, I’m C.J. and I’m a little crazy.  Love me and read my stuff.”  Before the flaming pitchforks come out, I’ll scurry off and leave you with this: 

Welcome, one and all. 
Prepare for some chaos.
