In the beginning...

I've decided to try to blogging thing and see how it goes. I know several people who keep one and it is always fun to read their sites, so I thought I would give it a shot.

I want a shorter title but couldn't think of anything good.

One title I considered was Karl's Deck, which is a double joke: 1) A friend Gail's blog is titled Gail's Balcony, so my title would play off her title; 2) Some other friends (hi Krisanne!) might laugh at the reference to my housewarming party in August 2003.

Another title considered is Double Happiness, which has a nice optimistic ring to it. It also happens to be the name of my favorite bike jersey, and would thus tie into sports topics that will be a recurring theme.

Yet another option is lifting some referece from a favorite book, e.g. Miraldra from Jack Vance's Lyonesse series. But then I would feel like I had to tie most posts to that fictional universe.

For the launch of this blog I settled on Evergreen Eclectic Musings for the state I live in, and the various topics that I will cover.

I like "Karl's Deck", but then you'll just get tons (or tonnes) of card jokes... or people will not get it.
