I recently saw an old highschool friend who jokingly (I hope) asked me what my blog address was so she could stalk us.  This surprised me as I had always assumed that blogs were for parents with the sole purpose of showing off their precious babies or artsy people that need additional outlets.  We have no precious babies and I haven't seen a french flick in ages.  Can we still have a blog?

When I asked Zach if we should consider one, his response was, "A blog?  But we don't have any kids yet."  I argued that we could still be cool and worth blogging about without kids, but apparently I sounded desperate to prove something.  I justified starting one because hey, we'll be away from family this summer and at least family should still want to see us kidless, right?  Besides, if I do a really good job with a blog, I can forgo scrapbooking.  If I do a really, really good job and get in touch with my artsy side, I may even be able to skip the whole journal writing thing.  Thus the blog.

The next dilemna was, now that we have a blog, what do we name it?  "The Judkins" was simply too unoriginal for our completely original personalities, and Zach turned down the cutesy idea of combing our names in "Zarissakins".  I'm still bitter about that one.  Unable to decide, we turned to the source of all knowledge: Google.  We were certainly not alone- there are billions of name generators out there, but we found a real gem:

Aside from awesome superhero, villain, and secret agent names, this name generator came up with these classics that very nearly became the title of our blog:
- Late Elastic Autopsy
- Gutsy Sunshine
- Helpless Windshield
- Loons of Bazol
- Hobo Mission
- Itchy Raw Butterfly

After all these brilliantly stimulating ideas, Zach simply pulled our current title out of thin air. Blame him.

We hope you enjoy this perspective on our life.

Oh, and Happy Birthday Zach! :D
