Maximum Verbosity: The Year in Review

Here's an utterly pointless meme I picked up somewhere: Write down the first sentence of the first blog entry of each month of 2005. String them together to make a singularly pointless paragraph, and, lo, 'tis your blog's Year in Review!

Here's how mine came out:
Well, for the last couple of years on January 1st I've posted a list of the books I read in the previous year, and as far as I'm concerned that's enough to count as a tradition, so I figured I'd do it again. February has sort of taken me by surprise. Remember my computer problem that turned out not to actually be a problem with my computer? A couple of April Fool's Day links. I took yet another break from the moving thing last night and went up to Albuquerque to see The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I was having an e-mail discussion with a friend a while back that really got me thinking. I'm getting kind of bored with this again, which is why there wasn't one last week. You are Seven of Nine. According to the Washington Post, the VCR is now a dead technology. Aargh. I just got this really odd e-mail from Amazon.com. Here it is, December already, and most of my Christmas shopping is still undone.

Wow, that year went fast, didn't it?

Actually, I initially started doing this wrong and taking the last entry from each month, and was getting something that seemed almost startlingly coherent (albeit pretty inane). Maybe I'll do that as a variant when the year's actually up. Assuming I remember which, admittedly, I probably won't.
