My take on the news

I’ve decided to start blogging about current events. I have a journalism degree PLUS I recently started reading/subscribing to The New York Times. I believe that makes me the most qualified person in the world.

Thinking I’ll do this every day, or a couple times a week, or whenever I feel like it/only this one time. For the inaugural post I’ll do the lead story on nytimes.com. And I’ll always try to do that (the lead story), but I’ll reserve the right to choose something else when I want to.

The all-new Audi S5 Coupe.

My take: The car looks very shiny and blue, which is excellent, but I’m not sure that’s a real road it’s driving on. This is most likely fake news.

2 thangs, and some subcategories

1. I chose the “Journalist v1.9” theme for this website. After reading its description (Journalist is a smart, minimal theme designed for professional journalists), I knew it was the one for me:

a. I just graduated college with a communications degree. That means I’m a JOURNALIST.

b. I just graduated college with a communications degree. That means I’m SMART.

c. I live in a trailer and my bedroom has 3-foot ceilings. That means I’m MINIMAL.

d. I have a blog. That means I’m PROFESSIONAL.

1. I went with the “Bueno” theme instead.

a. Bueno candy bars taste something real nice.

2. I did a Google search for “quotes about sophisticated ladies” to help me think of a domain name/blog title.

a. Thanks, Judy Holliday.

b. You can read the title two ways:

i. Classygallie? Oh it’s just that classy G, Allie.

ii. Classygallie? Oh, it’s just that classy gal, Allie.

c. I’m reading The Da Vinci Code right now, so I’m really into double-entendres. Call me Jacques.
