Can and can't

I can't do a proper piece about how I rang in the new year, because ringing in the new year involved champagne (and waffles!) but I need to do something to keep myself awake until I can finish off at least this one 20 oz. bottle of water. I choose this interesting exercise I found on Moxie. Read this entry for where she got it. The rules state that you post the first sentence of the first post of each month of the previous year as a way of summarizing one's year.

January: I have to say that this might be one of the best New Year's eves of my career.

February: I just found out that on Tuesday our good friend Cameron died of complications from a surgery to alleviate some problems related to a tumor.

March: Baby Watch 2006 is in full swing.

April: According to CBS Sunday Morning Hugh Hefner turns 80 today and he says that 80 is the new 40.

May: So 2 ladies made fun of me on the train today.

June: It's Pumpkin Chili's birthday today!

July: I think the one with his mouth open makes him look like his dad...that came out wrong.

August: "So I'm going to the cookout in NJ. I'm supposed to bring dessert. I'll have to figure something out."

September: May was a long time ago.

October: What about this woman says, "I am one tough-ass bitch?"

November: I did what I always do and procrastinated and procrastinated and whined and became unforgivably late before actually getting off my ass and doing something.

: Quick bit of housekeeping.

I don't know if this feels representative but it certainly is interesting.

    I went through and collected the first line of the first entry of every month last year, and I'm not sure I can learn anything from it, either, except that I should work on my openings!

    I can't wait to hear the steam engine story. Thanks for letting me know that you're safe.

    Happy New Year, my friend. I love you.

  2. Hey, that's a cool idea. I'm not sure it would serve as Cliff Notes for someone who hadn't read the book but it did do well as a refresher course.

    Off to read Chili's now.
