And it begins

Well, here it is. My first blog. I've always been skeptical, and especially after seeing Julie and Julia, I fervently vow to NOT post simply for the purpose of gaining an audience. I, Melody Trowell, being of sound mind and body do hereby acknowledge that "if you built it, they will come" but, nevertheless, will retain my focus, which is to simply do this for me and for fun. Having said that, the meaning of my title should be fairly salient, so I won't waste time on exegesis. There's nothing else really to say other than, let's lock and load for some ups and downs, randomness and relevance, silliness and severity...ready, set, go!
