So this time of year so many media outlets blast their readers with end of year lists, I read them with great interest to see if they match my tastes. Its amazing to see people wrap up a year in 10 or less lines or blurbs. Is that not the most interesting thing? To wrap up a full year in 10 items or less? Its like the express lane of events and I don't know seriously if I can wrap one year up in 10 lines or less. So much has happened, I have seen and experienced so much its hard to imagine putting it down all compressed like others seem to find so easily to do.
But... because I am not one to ever miss any opportunities to try something new here goes and in NO specific order. I am limiting myself to 12 items one for each month, the highlights and maybe lowlights!
January 2008: my favorite post of the month, the WGA was striking and tv sucked so I watched alot of movies. I enjoyed the concept of finding old friends on MySpace (not really). I also got poked.
February 2008: I paid off my car, and my favorite post of the month, Valentine made me laugh about potatoes. I found an episode of The Simpsons which was great. and it snowed.

So there it is.
Got my haircut and was talked out of getting it all cut off, not long enough to donate yet even though I really wanted to. Glad I didn't do it now. Thanks Stacy for talking me down.
