Time for a little lazy blogging to get the year started.
Last year, I jumped on a little meme that Cath directed me to, namely the idea of listing the first sentence of the first post of each month. It failed a bit, since there were three months where (shock!) I didn't post a single thing. This year, surprisingly enough, isn't as bad, although June has gone AWOL and many of the entries aren't actually sentences at all.
January. About the hockey pool: "Yes, the holiday break is over, and all excuses about 'being away from the internet' or 'being too sleepy/full/hung over to make my picks' are now invalid."
February. Lazy cross-posting: "If anyone's interested, I've put up a new blog post at Life Science Tools of the Trade."
March. I re-designed the blog's template, and posted a photo of a fish: "Today's news - nothing much, just a template re-design."
April. It's not even a real sentence, but it's about LinkedIn's April Fool's Day joke: "...on visiting my LinkedIn profile today."
May. An exhortation to go and vote in the Canadian federal election. I've cheated here, by including both a fragment, and the real sentence that follows it: "May 2, 2011. Federal Election Day. Get out and vote... please."
June. I didn't blog a thing in June, apparently.
July. Not much here either, just a teaser about the 2011 Honda Indy Toronto race: "The 2011 Honda Indy Toronto."
August. A summary of the Indy race. I've cheated again, since the first bit of writing is actually a photo caption. Here's the first full sentence from the body text: "I'm a bit late, the race having taken place in mid-July, but here's the beginning of my synopsis of this year's Honda Indy Toronto weekend."
September. Another sentence fragment, about fish: "...to bring you two new arrivals at Château Ricardipus."
October. This isn't a full sentence either! "The 2011 edition of the annual pumpkin photo:"
November. Even more lazy cross-posting: "I'm cheating."
December. More photography, and yet another incomplete sentence: "An impromptu project to capture some of the energy of Toronto's streets, financial districts and commuter hubs."
All that cross-posting kind of makes you think I ought to concentrate my efforts on one blog, not three, doesn't it?
