It's the first of November, which means to bloggers everywhere it's time for (Inter)National Blog Posting Month! As it happens, I started posting daily on the first of November 2008, and I didn't drop the ball for a whole year.
So what's happened in the past twelve months? For those of you joining us now, lets have a quick recap:
- November '08: America got a new president, and I got my beloved iPod Touch.
- December '08 : Bettie Page died, and I discovered Constant Comment tea.
- January '09: John Mortimer and Patrick McGoohan both died, and I gave up trying to train the cats to use the toilet like humans.
- February '09: Edith killed our romantic Valentine cupcakes, and I ran the first Alien Spouse Mystery Crochet Contest. I must do another one of those sometime...
- March '09: We began to go to the gym before work, and I discovered the internet wonder that is Hulu.
- April '09: Doc C learnt to make crumpets, and we went to Philadelphia.
- May '09: I went whale watching in Province Town and got a tattoo of a key on my right wrist.
- June '09: Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died. The media went insane, I'm just surprised no-one's yet claimed it wasn't all an elaborate hoax to jump start Jackson's come back.
- July '09: Doc got his iPod Touch and a new bike.
- August '09: I passed my learners permit test (first go and no wrong answers) and signed up for my MA course in English Literature.
- September '09: Keisha left the Sugababes and I went for my two year anniversary of coming to America to be Biometrically Tested
- October '09: I got Mono and slept through October. No really, I did, and I still blogged every day, that is commitment.
That was 2009, at the beginning of the NaBloPoMo cycle I taught myself to crochet and for 2010 I'm teaching myself to knit. Well, I actually could already knit never ending scarves, but this time I intend to knit actual things. To your left you will see the first few rows of a red cotton circular thingy, which is going to be a cowl, assuming that I've actually made it big enough to go over my head.
