December 31, 2007
If I'm not careful, this will become a tradition...
Also apologies for typos and broken links; this is long and I'm lazy...
I celebrated Star Wars Day, I complained about Eurovision, the United States of America was visited by Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, I complained about call centres (bloody Indians, staying over there stealing our jobs)*, we didn't actually lose Eurovision, I saw Tony Robinson live** again, I had some questions about global warming, and was baffled by stupid eBayers.
Channel 4 appeared to be heartless bastards, I voiced my hatred of MySpace, I had a birthday (twenty...something. I loose track...), my eyes were irreparably damaged by the sight of the gaudy monstrosity that is the 2012 Olympic logo, Safari came to Windows and I was somewhat disappointed, the BBC had a stupid headline, I devised a fantastic new Spelling Alphabet, mollycoddling school kids wasn't being taken far enough, and Tony Blair was named peace envoy to the Middle East and I was desperately hoping it was a joke.
I was confused by politics, I customised my new mobile phone... twice, I compared browsers using a religion metaphor, and I didn't have enough money to buy the greatest keyboard ever devised by anyone anywhere ever.
I thought of a brilliant joke too late, it was announced that Sonic the Hedgehog will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, I really wanted a secret underground lair, the BBC kept cancelling Top Gear broadcasts for tripe, and I found a great video.
Abbey are bastards when it comes to fines, my blog had another birthday, someone parked a Smart Car, I came across a truly inspiring quotation from Theodore Roosevelt, I made a little boat, I bought a new tripod, and the government lost a few people's personal details.
So there we are. A surprising amount of content given I hardly seemed to blog this year...
** As in "he was there", not as in "the opposite of dead".
