8:28 pm - The First Lines Meme  
This should make for a nice meta reference next year.

Last seen at fatoudust and jesseh, the first lines for each month's first post.

January: I didn't do resolutions last year, but I looked back the the resolutions I posted at the start of 2006.

February: I've spent much of the week dealing with bizarre computer related problems at work, so I am in total sympathy with Bob Timmermann over at the Griddle when he describes the five stages of computer death.

March: March has arrived like a lion that forgot to take its ritalin.

April: There are often times when I think to myself "It'd be nice to be home and asleep."

May: It's been sunny the last couple of days, but a lot cooler than last week.

June: We've had some very pleasant weather the last couple of days.

July: "Testicular squee" (It was part of a discussion about the injury that landed Chris Snyder of the D'backs on the Disabled List.)

August: Drove down to Jersey Friday to renew the registration on my truck.

September: Been running on autopilot lately.

October: The Dodgers got only their second win in a post-season game in the last twenty years tonight, thumping the Cubs, 7-2.

November: Another lovely day, sunny and in the sixties.

December: I made the world's easiest cheesecake last night.

I do prattle on about the weather, don't I?

We all know that weather talk is the only lead up to some insane tale of cycling awesomeness.

"It was pleasantly sunny with a light breeze..." [therefore I decided to bike to Maine to try out this lobster shack I'd heard about. When my frame was bent by an 2-foot deep pothole north of Portsmouth, I bent it back into shape with my bare hands. Note to self: check out portable welding kits for future.]

"It's been snowing steadily for the last week, with zero-visibility due to 50 mph blizzardy gusts..." [so I decided to only bike 60 miles this Saturday.]

Happy New Year!

Re: Pffft.
I did think it strange that none of the lines mentioned a bicycle.

Happy New Year to you, too, whoever you are...
