Happy Birthday, Bloggie

My blog tuurned one year old on Saturday. Crazy!

It all started with PlanetDan's montage of bad senior pictures. I received it as an email forward from a friend of mine who said, "I'm pretty sure you're the one who wrote this..." Then I started reading Dan's blog a lot and enjoyed the comments section. Then I started looking at HotBabe's and Stacy's blogs too. Soon I joined the party. My first post was written on a Friday night at my old apartment in Rochester, MN - home of the infamous Mayo Clinic.

In the past year, I got fired from old company and found a job in the Twin Cities, then moved to Minneapolis. Lost that job as well and took a job with another firm, which let me go for suspicious reasons, then started current job - which is going much better than the last two.

I turned 27.

I've had countless bad dates and other disappointments in that arena.

My car died and I had to start driving a '92 Cadillac.

The blog that is most often visited via Google searching is about the popular Minneapolis drag queen, Roxy Marquis.

The most comments I've received (22), I think, was after getting fired this past June. Maybe because the title had the F-Bomb in it.?.

I went to North Dakota - the extent of my travels during the past year. Pretty sad.

I slapped one person. A slow year.

Well, here's to another fun-filled year of documenting a story that would otherwise go untold. And probably rightfully so.


  • Happy anniversary Kiddo!
    I have some serious catching up to do with your blog. I have been slacking off in my blog commenting....
