What else?

Embellished description of physical form. Arrogant exaggeration of mental capacity. Pretentious musings on the trite nature of blogging. List of interests that make me seem intelligent and show no relation to interests list directly below. Self-important pledge to differ my own journal from those of others. Lament that this approach has no doubt already been used. I think that about covers it.
