I Know Nothing.

My long gone, Polish born grandfather, had an expression he often used which would elicit laughter around Grandma's holiday table. "Ja nic ne wiem," he'd say. Very roughly (and I think in improper Polish) it translated to "I know nothing."

As I start this blog I need to make a few things perfectly clear:

  • I know nothing, so don't you come lookin' to me for no expert advice. Ain't happening here. At best, I'm a novice at many things.
  • I have many opinions . Yep, that's right. Someone who knows nothing is going to tell you what she thinks about lots of stuff.
  • Popular culture references are lost on me. Don't expect them or make them here. No idea who was on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Can't tell you where Jay-Z and Beyonce ate last weekend. Haven't been to a movie since 2001. Bridget Jones's Diary. Got so mad at my boyfriend for just being a man. Big fight! Never again.

So that's it. Anything else goes. Let's see where this takes us!
