The Big Fat Blog Entry Of The Year 2007

Follow-up to The Big Fat Blog Entry Of The Year 2006 from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

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 offered half-price Free Nothing, Orange cut our broadband off, I ranted about "Coming up, after the break"... twice, and we got our broadband back.


I discovered <optgroup>, and I discovered the meaning of "passive aggressive".


I lamented at how recent Sonic games have been lousy, I discovered that "had had" is more widely accepted than just "had", and I dispelled a few myths.


The Internet properly came to the Wii, and I bought a power meter.


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.


The Smoking Ban kicked in and is fantastic, the Toyota Prius hardly needs a driver, I pondered religion, and was concerned about household gas.


I couldn't understand why people were surprised by how clean toilets are, I was annoyed by "humanoid", and the Summer might have been the wettest since records began.


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.


I discovered a dangerous virus is fortunately a hoax, I launched the Cheapskate Carbon Offset service, I had Christmas, and I blogged about the year.

So there we are. A surprising amount of content given I hardly seemed to blog this year...


* Satire.
** As in "he was there", not as in "the opposite of dead".
