'Nother Year-End Meme Thing

A while back, I did this "blog year in review" meme, in which you string together the first sentence of the first post of each month, for whatever mild entertainment value stuff like that gives you. And I started out doing it wrong, taking the first sentence of the last post instead. The results actually were much more amusingly coherent, but I figured I'd have to wait until December was over to do it properly. Well, December is now over, so here's the result:
You know what's really starting to annoy me? You know what really sucks? Man, flood insurance is expensive. Here we are: the latest batch of weird, wacky and interesting search requests that have brought poor misguided souls to this blog. I really can't even pretend these are happening weekly, can I? The first space shuttle launch since the Columbia disaster is scheduled for my birthday. You've all seen this news item about the discovery of a "tenth planet" by now, right? I've just been looking at some of the coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. A friend in New Zealand just pointed out this utterly wonderful listing on an NZ internet auction site: an unfinished time machine for sale. Oh, and before I forget... Excellent news! Well, here we are in the waning hours of 2005...

That does kinda seem like it represents the distilled essence of my blog, doesn't it? And, eerily, if you squint really hard, there almost seems to be some kind of a plot...
