Happy 2nd Blogoversary To Me!

I just realized that today is my second Blogoversary! It seems like only 730 short days ago that I first wrote my very first blog, musing as only a genius like myself can on the Olympics. Ruminating on such controversial topics as the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Making a prediction that the Seattle Seahawks would be good one season too early. Am I clairvoyant? Perhaps. Am I eloquent. You tell me. Do I have a lot of free time on my hands? Without question.

Since many people remember everything I write down for the rest of their lives, this part will probably be superfluous, but for the rest of you, it's essential. Exactly one year ago today, I created a list of the many topics I would cover over the coming year. Well, the year is past, let's see how I did.


  • Football (check)
  • Stupid shit that I did (check)
  • Pictures of my newborn toddlers (nope, they ran away)
  • Bad things that happened to me (um, yeah)
  • Embarrassing things that happened to me
  • Celebrities I hate (check and check)
  • How much weight I've gained (keypad won't work, dammit)
  • My iPod (check and mate)
  • Ju-jitsu (and other forms of self-defense)
  • Celebrities I think are hot (are your ears ringing, Jude Law?!)
  • The boys my twin teenage daughters are dating (I killed them, sorry)
  • How to get one side of the Rubik's Cube (almost got it!)
  • Sneaking food into a movie theater (two words: big pockets)
  • Which baseball cards will appreciate in value over the next five years (baseball cards are dead)
  • Movie quotes ("you're fired Ed, bing-bong-bong")
  • An "irreverent" look at religion (maybe?)
  • Nutritious dishes you can make in under 40 minutes (I prefer to eat out)
  • A tribute to Lance Bass (seriously, I had no idea)
  • Cats (The animal, not the musical, silly!) (nope)
  • My soon-to-be annual pledge drive (still waiting for your donation)
  • World leaders Pat Robertson wants to assassinate now (not enough bandwidth)
  • Rants against the evils of corporate America and the way that big business runs our country (been done)
  • Crossword puzzles I've actually finished (hasn't happened)
  • Rappers to which I give mad respect (check)

(Kidding aside, I never intended to blog about any of those things, and haven't read that post in a year, but hey, I keep my promises, even when it's unintentional.)

I'm not going to be so bold as to predict the topics for 2006-07, but let's hope the next 12 months bring all of us everything we want and more. Happy blogging!
