Year in Review

A simple little idea: Go to your Calendar and find the first real entry for each month of 2005 (not including memes of course). Post the first line of it in your journal, and that’s your year in review. Mine seems to be a pretty good summary of what I use this blog for…

January: In the past two years, I’ve heard several soldiers say that they dislike civilians questioning the course of the war, since if the soldiers aren’t allowed to do so, why should someone who isn’t even involved?
February: The political philosophy of the Bandar-Log
March: Can anyone point me at a reliable source of information about the activities of frienditto, and if at all possible to their terms of service?
April: My only excuse for this is that I was reading the Heimskringla while really, really sleep-deprived, and woke up with this in my head.
May: Hmm… I haven’t posted anything in here in a while.
June: The desert and Petra were amazing.
July: Looks like Newsweek just came out with their article about the source in the Valerie Plame case, based on what Time magazine decided to hand over to prosecutors.
August: I just got back from a talk given by a friend of mine who’s been out of the country for some time, being a peace activist in the West Bank.
September: Of course! It’s so clear now! The people still in New Orleans are there because they want to be there.
October: President Bush has nominated White House Counsel Harriet Miers to succeed Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court.
November: Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works committee, and supposedly an Evangelical Christian, responded to calls for “Creation Care” (i.e., stewardship of the world) from the National Association of Evangelicals, in an interesting fashion.
December: (I actually haven’t posted at all in December)

  1. No, no, you have it all wrong. The last one should be:
    “December: A simple little idea: Go to your Calendar and find the first real entry for each month of 2005 (not including memes of course).”
    Now, this gets really interesting if you choose to do the variant of this meme that a friend of mine did, in which you post the last line of your first post of the month. In your case we would get some interesting recursion-ish stuff.

  3. But doesn’t the parenthetical exclusion exclude that?
    And the last line wouldn’t be recursive at all; you could put any line you wanted as the last line, and it would be (by definition) the last line of your first post of the month.

  4. Right, the parenthetical exclusion does that in.
    However, I think it would still be recursive (assuming the exclusion was not in effect): because what you put in the last line would be X, but the last line would in fact be: “December: X”. So you would have to write: “December: December: X” which would cause it to be . . . etc.
