Happy birthday blog

  • Today marks the one-year anniversary of my blog. Here's my first blog entry.
    "Things may be rather stale for a month or so," I wrote.
    I am happy to report that they have, in fact, remained stale for a whole year. Here's looking forward to another year of poo! Rather appropriately, the traditional gift for a one-year anniversary is paper, which is probably where this blog should exist -- on paper, in a trashcan.

  • My obsession with all things Welsh has gotten out of hand. I didn't realize it until looking at this picture, but I am apparently trying to look like Tom Jones in 1966*.

  • I'm making it a goal to use these words. Actually, we have used "snirt" for a long time up here in Minnesota.

  • Things could be worse, I suppose, I could be trying to build my own light saber. Key element: "the 17-year-old girl and a 20-year-old man... suffered serious injuries."

  • Des Moines is more exciting than you might have thought.

  • "Police said (Bobby) Brown was at the restaurant performing during a weekly open microphone event when the people he arrived with got into a fight."
    It's his prerogative to rock open mic night. So, so, so sad, and yet, not at all surprising.

  • Great name of the day: Phonsavanh Thammavongsa.

    *I am desperately trying not to sound like a girl here, but I hate this picture. By putting it on the Internet I have set myself up for years of shame and embarrassment. Some day my children will find this picture and they will laugh and laugh and laugh, and then I will lock them in a dark and tiny box and they will have only their screams to keep them company. That'll teach them to make fun of their dad, the ungrateful little punks.

    The resemblance in those pictures is amazing! By the way, I'm embarrassed to say I really like Tom Jones.

    Hey, Happy Birthday, this blog.

    Chris, you shouldn't be so dismissive of your poor blog. Just think: without it you wouldn't know all of your lovely internet friends. Or receive shit embroidery in the mail.

    You so nappy, I give that catacomb.

    I have used "slickery" all my life: Slickery, Dickory, Dock...

    I wrote a story once about Damrongsak Sirimungkla. Got him deported to Thailand.

    Chris, I completely forgot to say "happy birthday!"

    Many more.

    Tom Jones ROCKS! His version of "Kiss" by far surpasses Prince's stlyings.
