Who Am I?

fandangoAllow me to introduce myself. I’m Fandango, which, for the purpose of this blog, is my pseudonym. My real world identity will remain a mystery.

So I’m Fandango, but not as in the Fandango app that you use to check show times and to purchase movie tickets. Oh no. I’m Fandago, for those of you who are Queen fans, as made infamous by the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody:

“I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
Galileo, Galileo, Galileo Figaro,

That’s my picture above and on the left. Well, that’s the image I picked to go with my pseudonym, anyway. Very, very frightening, right?

But I digress. I have no particular niche for this blog. It is about “this, that, and the other.” And as my tagline suggests, my posts reflect my personal observations and perspectives on life, society, and politics. I try to infuse my posts, even those that cover deadly serious topics, with humor when I can. I occasionally throw into the mix some flash fiction.

As to who I am, I am a septuagenarian. I am retired, liberal, practical, pragmatic, and, at times, cantakerous. And yes, I can be somewhat pedantic (i.e., fussy) when it comes to grammar, spelling, and usage.

Finally, in the interest of full disclosure, this is not my first trip around the block, blog-wise. I’ve been blogging on and off since 2005, although it’s been off since early 2015. But I have recently been feeling the urge to start blogging again, so here we go. One more time!

All that said, I hope you enjoy reading my blog and I would be delighted to read and respond to your comments on my posts.

Best regards,

    How can I miss that icon? Very funny and that’s not the least of it! Enjoy reading your posts. Don’t stop. There’s a joke there somewhere…

        And I did conduct an exhaustive search for the perfect icon to reflect who I am. Thanks for noticing.
