How Now Brown Cow

I think it makes complete sense to try to sort out who I am. Wait.. did that make sense?

Let me try this again..

After surveying my facebook "Destination Unknown" fan page, and Network Blog followers, my Blogger/Google followers and what not - I realized that over half of you - I DO NOT KNOW! exciting, and weird all at the same time.

I love to share my thoughts with a captive audience, but at the same time I need a disclaimer. Many of you may not know where I am "coming from" or what is going on or.. anything like that.

Since we clearly will not have the opportunity to make "official" acquaintance, I thought I would answer one of those silly surveys about me!

If you are just stopping by for the first time, it might be nice to know more about the girl - the destination - and why oh why there is no set format.

Yep - clearly there is NO method to the madness. ;-)
