A Year in Review

I'm stealing this idea from Stacy who stole it from Beck. Basically, you post the first sentence from the first blog post of every month of 2008. When compiling this, I learned something about myself: I can not write a first line if my life depended on it. I think I wait to hook things together at the end in an effort not to scare people.

There is a fine line between funny crazy & the kind of crazy that gets you locked up. I wouldn't walk up to someone on the street & say "Happy Abba Jabba." I would say "Hi, How are you? Happy Abba Jabba." So my take on this is to take the last line of the last blog post of every month which properly sums up 2008 as:

"Anyone can make fun of this stuff. I am deeply hurt. However, even with all of this I've always wanted to wear what the Gilmore Girls call "a dress with large circumference". I just want to know so that if I ever get an office job HR won't drag me from the building while I point & yell "funny bottoms tee hee funny bottoms." I will win at your little game.

In honor of that here is an expensive piece of crap that will either get you electrocuted or ruin your electronics when you spill something because you can't be trusted to use an ice cube. Switch to an SUV & tell me your story. Hello drop in teenage pregnancy rate. Say it with me now HOOOUUUUSSEE. Also, they've finally posted a video featuring Tom Hanks' old lady glasses. Sometimes it's hard to be me, but at least I don't have to deal with me. I'm classy like that. A friend once said that I'm the only person she's ever met that acts like Anne of Green Gables. "

I can safely say goodbye to that crazy line I was just talking about.

Here's my first line from Jan 1, 2008:

"With scissors, tape and various festive items, Child #3 and I snuck up the street."

Actually, I think I like it. I'm not checking February's though. Just in case it sucks. ;)

oddly enough all those sentences do work together and make an entirely reasonably nonsensical post on their own. Happy Abba Jabba!
