Well the end of the year is nigh, at least. So nigh, in fact, it’s pretty much here already. By the time you read this line, there will be less than 2 weeks till the ball drops for 2011. Rather than dropping the ball and waiting for Jan 1, 2011 myself (how passé!) I want to be the first to drop my 2010 Retrospective highlighting one top post from each month. So without further adieu, I present to you:
2010: A 2010 Retrospective looking back at a year of blogging in 2010. Retrospectively.
January 2010: Why should polar bears have all the fun?
Tempting fate and Mother Nature by taking an ice cold dip in the Pacific Ocean. If you think a person has to be mad to do it – you’re just about right on that. The madder the better.
Would I do it again? I guess you`ll find out in less than 2 weeks…
February 2010: Please, oh please, won’t you be my anti-valentine?
Inspired by love and all its BS, as well as this hilarious antivalentine’s day card courtesy of www.Meish.org/vd:
March 2010: End Game
Olympic Fever hit me as early as January and I had several posts on the Olympics over a 2 month period culminating in this final, sad entry. Olymmmmmpicsssss! Those who lived it just know. Those who didn’t could be better off not feeling the loss of a time when the city of Vancouver was engulfed, enthralled and enchanted by all that was and might never be again. Sigh. So as you can tell it’s a fun, uplifting post. 😉
April 2010: Supporting the Arts
Oh Septocus! How I wanted this great performance art piece to be bad. I’ve never been so happy to be disappointed in my life. (Contrarily, I really wanted this performance art to be good and it was…not that)
May 2010: I’ve got your future right here
I paid $40 to be told the equivalent of what I could have discovered using a Magic 8-ball. Thinking of getting your palm read and your crystals analyzed? Simply remove my name in this post and paste in yours. Bam! I just saved you $40.
June 2010: Love thy Father
My heartfelt salute to my most favouritest man in the world – Daddykins! Interestingly enough, he doesn’t read my blog – the bastard! 😉 Xoxo!
July 2010: Festivus of Beer
Ah yes, an alcoholic’s dream come true… Assuming the alcoholic liked beer. Unfortunately I don’t. Read on for the details of this living nightmare.
August 2010: Pie Times
22 pies to taste and one spork with which to do it. As any 12-year-old girl with an eating disorder would say: OMG. Get a napkin ready and read on about the best day of my life!
September 2010: Peaceful Anarchy
Cycling for hours just for the hell of it. If we cause a little anarchy while we’re at it, so be it.
October 2010: The Grouse Grind®
Took on this bitch and it kicked my arse. Twice! Argh! I don’t take defeat very well. I’ll see you again in the spring, you sanctimonious whore! If you don`t know what the grouse grind is, count yourself lucky. And probably lazy. Yah you heard me. Take the challenge!
November 2010: Wedding Fever
I finally learned about the fun in marriage Weddings! The glam; the photographers; the planning; the fun; the cake (oh my, the cake!); the party; the gifts; and the most important part of that day – the open bar! Marriages do not = weddings. A wedding is the drug: an ecstasy pill coated in butter cream frosting, served with free flowing champagne. Marriage is what comes after the drug fuelled, champagne high. Like the hangover if you will. heh heh heh. Hey, there’s always the simple cure (divorce) and then you can have another wedding, woo!
What? A 2010 retrospective looking back at a favourite blog from each month in 2010? What a great idea. 😉
Is this considered a paradox thingy? Nope. Apparently it’s called Recursion. Learning is fun! (except when it isn’t)
December 2010 (the real one): `tis the season (pt II)
Get in the spirit with this handy guide that should motivate you to get off your couch!… or stay on it. I have tips for you lazy folks too. And yes, you’re welcome.
The Nigh at the End
There you have it. A non-comprehensive 2010 retrospective on the year 2010 (a retrospective).
What’s next for 2011? What’s next on the agenda? What will happen over the next 12 months? What predictions or speculations are on the horizon for the coming year? I haven’t a clue but after seeing that fortune teller back in May 2010, I do know one thing for sure:
Neither does she.
