The Story behind The Blog

Okay, so I bet your wondering why it's called 'Vintage Spammy', right? So here's the story...
Many aeons before the dawn of civalization and all that crap, there was an ancient and primeval and primordial being. They called him...
Wait a second, who's they? I thought there was no-one around yet? Dang
Once upon a time--
Hold the phone! That is THE most hackneyed way to start a story! Your gonna have to do better than that to get famous!
Hackneyed sells. Live with it.
Once upon a time, in a land very far away--
Shut up.
Once upon a time, in a land very far away, there was a little kingdom called...
You aren't going to tell them the true story, hmmm?
Sigh. Whatever. I guess I'll have to now.
Okay so I like to write. And I am a member of multiple sites that are supposed to help me with my writing. One day my brother, Scott--he likes to write as well--joins this one writing site. He says it's really cool, and so I try to join. It didn't work. So then the next day he says I should join. I told him I had tried. And it hadn't worked.
But he keeps bugging me so I whipped out the ultimate guy response.
"Okay, I'll show you!" I said.
"Okay, show me." Scott said.
So I go to the website and I click the 'Sign up' button. I type in my name and what I want as a username--and, being stupid, I typed in 'Spammy' saying "Even a name like this, that couldn't possibly be taken, wouldn't work."--and clicked the submit button.
Guess what? It worked! Phooie. But, again, being stupid, I actually used the account. So there you have it. The epic saga of my username. Rank up there with Beowulf? Definately not. Gives a great example of my usual brain functions? Yep.
By the way, like the pic? I call it the "V S shield."

    just thought I'd drop a line to say:
    that's just wonderful irony. I love irony. so...ironic. is it a bird?
    Is it a plane?
    Nope, it's vintage spammy!
