The deal, as I understood it last year:
1) Harken back to your archives.
2) Collect the first sentence you wrote every month for the whole year.
3) Entertain us.
January: Yes, it’s what I expected, but still…I kind of thought my social ineptitude score might be a little lower.
February: A meme, of course.
March: I’ve been threatening to do this for awhile, but I think it’s finally time. (That would be switching to WordPress.)
April: Shrinky wants to see pictures of people’s desktops, and that happens to be something I particularly like seeing, too…I love that little glimpse into people’s everyday worlds.
May: I. Hate. Fieldnotes.
June: days until we move: 38
July: As seen absolutely everywhere. I thought this was especially funny: “No-one actually knows the REAL you, do they?”
August: We’re still in Hometown State, which is about a quarter of the way to California.
October: CRSE tagged me–well, not just me, and if you’re on her blogroll you’re tagged too–for a desktop meme.
November: What I really, really want for dinner: mashed potatoes, onion rings, PopTarts.
December: Is it just me, or is eating at Subway just a little too close to actually having to make your own sandwich?
You know what? I don’t think that was at all representative of my year. Weird, because last year’s seemed pretty right. I think, since I have those archives open, I’m going to try something different: the blog-post title for each month that’s most representative. (Because, yeah, I am clearly done working for the day.)
March: Ow, my head. Here’s a meme.
April: Wooing is exhausting.
May: Dude, I married a lawyer.
June: I am totally easy.
July: fuck. (first line: I’m not ready to leave here.)
September: home sweet home.
November: Whiskeytown makes me cry lately.
December: I’m inclined to say it’s “good enough”
Yeah, that was a little better. Time consuming, but better.
(Stay tuned: I’m pretty sure I’m going to revisit the giant-ass New Year’s Meme very soon…)
