Flashback Friday!

My first ever post. The one that started it all on Wednesday 18th January 2006. Look how far I've come. Okay, not really but here are some of my feelings about this post all these years later:

  • I still sound like myself... kinda funny, kinda weird, and all about me. Start as you mean to go on, eh?
  • I just dove in, didn't I? I like that. I hadn't read a lot of blogs previously so I just went with whatever I wanted to do. 
  • I used the word "frisson". Ooooh, fancy. I feel like lifting my pinkie.
I wish I had:
  • thrown in a photo and more than one link.
  • started this blog here at blogger rather than over at MySpace. About 2 years in I decided to move each blog painstakingly over to this site so a lot of posts refer to that place. 
  • hidden more about my personal life. Little did I know that people would actually read this and I'd worry about the kids a little. Even though crazy things happen in Canada too, I may have taken a lot of posts down if I lived in the US.
  • explained why I decided to blog in the first place and properly introduced myself. But over the course of 4 years, you kinda know me by now.
So there you have it. My first ever blog. It was a sign of things to come, that's for sure. Crazy, crazy things. Thanks for coming along for the ride. Have a nice weekend!
