With a tip of the chapeau to Cath over at VWXYnot, from whom I've borrowed the idea, here's a quick recap of the Ricardiblog for 2010. The first sentence of the first post from each month.
It's a pretty miserable collection, truth be told, with three months missing entirely (although, in a strangely recursive way, we could put "With a tip of the chapeau to Cath over at VWXYnot..." in as the first one for December, I suppose). A New Year's resolution for 2010 suggests itself - try to be a bit more consistent with posting. Although I did fire off half a dozen at Life Science Tools of the Trade, and I will soon be posting sporadically at another, as yet undisclosed, location. Stay tuned.
Anyway, here we go, sorry set of sentences though it is:
January: "Happy New Year, to anyone who might still be reading."
February: "Just a quick guerilla post to point anyone who might be reading at a worthy initiative - the Scientia Pro Publica blog carnival, which as I understand it is a regular initiative to bring interesting science to the attention of the general public."
March: "Time to brag a little."
April: Um, er, apparently I didn't post anything in April.
May: "A post?"
June: "The recent G20 summit in Toronto, truth be told, was only a minor inconvenience to me."
July: "I'm excited." [Ok, this is the first sentence of July - the first post per se consisted only of a photograph.]
August: "Saturday." [Hm. That's not really a sentence is it? The next one is the much more long-winded "A much earlier mandatory photography meeting than the previous day, and a quick brief for today's assignment - shots in the paddocks, the areas where the race cars live and are worked on, when they're not on-track."]
September: Argh, didn't post anything in this month either.
October: "There is a protest brewing, if I can mix metaphors so early in this post."
November: "One by one they left behind the bright fields of innocence and stepped into the darkness of experience." [I didn't write this, but it's a sentence. And there were no other posts in November to draw from.]
December: Um, er, I'll get back to you on that.
