First impressions

Justin did it a couple weeks ago, and Scarlet just did it today -- so I thought I'd join in the new fun meme making its way across the blogosphere (such as it is). Here are the first lines of the first post of each month of 2006:

  • February: This is my first post. Ever.

  • March: I generally go to Tom Sietsema for restaurant reviews and the Going Out Gurus for info about the DC bar scene.

  • April: As indicated, the NCAA basketball poll will end on Monday instead of Sunday.

  • May: About a month ago, I posted about the rave reviews being given to Craig Ferguson's new book. Even David Duchovny likes it, although that isn't surprising since he does have a thing for late-night tv hosts.

  • June: Everyone at work thinks this is funny.

  • July: Per Gawker, Alec Baldwin's i-Pod is currently for sale on e-Bay. The bidding is up to $117.50, with just under 9 days left.

  • August: I know this is going against everything I generally stand for, but I think Jimmy Carter is wrong, and {gulp} the Bush administration is closer to being right on the Israel-Lebanon conflict.

  • September: I have hurricanes on my mind today -- and not just the kind that are playing my alma mater on Monday.

  • October: A lot of people post these lists of 100 things about them.

  • November: Dave Navarro used to be my favorite blogging musician -- and it's not that I don't still love him -- it's just that John Mayer is friggin' hilarious.

  • December: Bored on a rainy Friday? Take the How's Your Vocabulary? quiz.

Strangely enough, these do not seem as much fun out of context.

It's still interesting, makes want to read the archives. Btw, you're not the most boring blog on the inter-web.

Sorry to break it to you like that.

Evil Spock: Eh, not my best work.

And yeah, I know I'm not the most boring blog on the web. But when I started, it had potential.
