A retrospective, my fifteen favorite posts (narcissim anyone?)

It's been exactly a year since my first post on Blogspot. I have been blogging (as I hear the kids call it) for a year, and it's probably the only thing in my life the past year that has been consistent (and you all know how consistent my posting is, so what does that tell you about my life?). Anyway, in honor of my psuedo acheivment I give you my fifteen favorite posts that I wrote of this past year. I was going to do twenty, but thought that'd be too many, and ten didn't seem like enough for me to revel in my own narcisism. Some you might have read, some you might have not. Feel free to read the old ones you missed, or re-read my newer favorites. Yes, it's egotism at its best, but it's also far easier to put up a retrospective like this than actually write something about the past year. Laziness how I adore thee. My top five are astrixed since I don't know how to make a star. These favorites were chosen as the ones that distill my nature and essense better to the bare essentials. If you didn't know what kind of person I was before, these are the posts to get you up to speed.

Apparently I wasn't very clever in Feburary, July, or September. And I'm more clever on Mondays, Wendesdays, and Thursdays than I am on other days. Good to know for the future I guess. Now you know the days and months to actually read this stuff.

I don't need to read any old posts. I've committed your entire blog to memory :)

Don't you remember September? You were down in the dumps (again) and weren't going to blog anymore. But then you did and we were all happy again. Good times.

You have too much time on your hands to be able to re-read, catalogue and then run statistics on you entire year of posts!

Happy Bloggiversary!

And for nonny: Howdy!

I hate it when people say "You have too much time on your hands". People say it to me too often. They are just jealous I think.

In any case - happy one year!

I didn't run statistics on all my posts, I just looked at the top fifteen and counted. It was maybe two minutes. Though truth be told I do have a lot of time on my hands. I need more hours at starbucks.

And Nonny: I'm frequently down in the dumps.

Rawbean: Thanks!
