So I noticed yesterday that I have a blog named "The Purple Hippo."
What is this blog for? I have no idea. Why did I create it? I don't remember. What purpose can such a blog serve? Beats me. The blog remains a mystery, made all the more compelling by the fact that I created it for reasons unknown and unscrutable, and it has been in existence all this time, biding its time, waiting for a purpose.
And now it has its first post; and because he is the sort of person who on general principle would support a blog named The Purple Hippo, I have invited my friend Brucker to contribute.
Maybe he'll know what it's for.
