I read this somewhere else, and thought it was a great idea. So here it is, the first line from the first post of every month in 2008:
January: 2007 has come to an end. Now it’s 2008.
Not very interesting, is it? I mean, duh.
February: I was depressed, and shadow puppets brought me out of it.
In the next sentence I admitted that I was only exaggerating. Shadow puppets indeed got me excited though!
March: This past month and half I’ve been dealing with a lot of annoyance.
Annoyance indeed. A few bad things happened and it had definitely slowed my steps down. 2008 wasn’t that great of a year. And I only had one post in March, and it was on March 31 of all days… bleh.
April: There are many holidays out there.
There are indeed. This just goes to show you that I am not that great at writing the opening line of posts.
May: I just saw a link to this video over at the PuppetVision blog, and I totally love it!
Oh yeah, those worms are so awesome!
June: Just got back from visiting my sister in Pittsburgh.
And it was a good trip.
July: Being a puppeteer is a lot like being an actor.
No kidding. Except when you can’t act, your face can’t save you (nor ruin you).
August: This is going to be THE most technical post that’s ever appeared on this blog, so if you can’t stand it, just skip over this post.
Ah, I was writing about upgrading from WordPress 2.1 to 2.6 and all the problems I encountered. Interesting to look at this now because I’m about to upgrade once again to 2.7. Hopefully no headaches this time. (It was challenging and mentally stimulating headache though.)
September: Don LaFontaine (August 26, 1940 – September 1, 2008) wasn’t the most famous celebrity out there, but so many of us had heard his voice.
Ah, the voice actor was a great man. May he rest in peace.
October: Sorry I’ve been MIA lately.
Bad blogger, bad.
November: In this episode, Bottle Monster can not decide between Barack Obama and John McCain.
Ah, this was a fun episode. And we finally have a new president.
December: Hm, for some reason this flyer actually fits my current color scheme very well.
This was about an LCC show and once again I wrote an ambiguous opening sentence. I’ve got to start writing better ones, eh?
Anyway, let’s remember the good about 2008, and forget about the bad. Okay, I don’t mean forget. I mean kick it under the bed. You’d know it’s there, but you will be able to sleep on it and don’t let it bother you.
So there you go, 2008.
