An Annual Meme Tradition

By Brian | December 21, 2008 | Share on Facebook

Over at Burlaki on the Thames, Ilya reminded me of a meme from last December, which was originally suggested by Jason Bennion over at Simple Tricks & Nonsense. Still with me? Well, whatever…

Here’s the deal:

Repost the first sentence of the first blog entry in each of the previous year’s 12 months.

Seems simple enough, right? Let’s see if twelve month’s initial post’s initial sentences tell a story, shall we?

January: It’s been a long time since an “Internet joke” e-mail contained anything I wanted to see, but these came through my inbox yesterday and I was rather impressed.

February: My officemate was the first person to pick up a MacBook Air from the Apple Store in midtown Manhattan.

March: Well, after two months of down statistics, I guess it’s hardly an accomplishment to say you grew month over month.

April: A quick note to people who wear a tiny diamond chip about halfway up their nose (a la last year’s American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks): unless the light hits it just right, it looks like a zit.

May: For those who wondered where I went again, Blogger took another 5-day hiatus on me.

June: This sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it’s apparently true: the inventor of the Pringles potato chip can died last month, and his ashes were buried in a Pringles can.

July: So, how long does it take to move a blog from Google’s Blogger tool to WordPress?

August: They say you learn something new everyday.

September: Since I commented on the other big speeches from the Democratic National Convention, I figured I should weigh in on Barack Obama’s acceptance speech as well.

October: Disney’s High School Musical 3 opens in London in three weeks, and London movie theaters have already sold more than £500,000 in advance ticket sales.

November: What’s this??

December: Via Glenn Reynolds, a link to eleven cool things you can do with your digital camera that you may not have thought about before.

Well, I guess we can clearly go with “No” on the “do they tell a story” question. In other news, I certainly seem to be scoring pretty high on the variety meter, huh?

Silver linings…

    I’d nominate the August entry as the faint underlying thread.

    Heh…I guess you’re right, although re-reading the article, that statement was made about land mines! Not exactly a running theme for the year…
