What is your deal?

My name is Philip Wisniewski. I'm 34, and I'm a circus acrobat with Ringling Brothers-Barnum & Bailey circus. This blog will be mostly about acrobatics, tumbling, flying through the air with the greatest of ease, etc.

You're lying, aren't you?

Yes. My name, really, is David. I'm going to do without a last name for the time being in the interest of keeping myself quasi-anonymous, although I'm sure you could figure it out if you were really motivated.

I'm 25. I'm from the Midwest. In about three weeks I'm going to begin a M.Div program at Princeton Theological Seminary. I'm guessing that that ought to provide plenty of interesting material to blog about, although you never know. I used to operate a blog called Captain Inertia; it's closed down now, but you can still visit it and browse archives, if you want.

In addition to blogging about Christian spirituality and Christian theology, I will also blog about some/all of the following things: the Chicago Cubs, rock music (indie rock, Tom Waits, whatever else I like), current events, monkeys, pirates, robots, ninjas, robot monkeys, pirate ninjas, robot ninjas (etc., etc.), and things I think are funny. I may also vent my spleen from time to time, although who knows.

Where does the name 'Up, lummox!' come from?

See my ramblings on my trip to Ireland of 2004, from my old blog. In short, I just thought it was a funny saying, and I still say it to myself occasionally, mostly when I'm trying to pry myself out of bed in the morning.
