LJ entry roundup, 2008 [20081211|11:28]

There may have been a lot of drinking last night. There may also have been multiple rounds of the ridiculous Hat Game, in which names of famous persons or those who are known to us are written on our Christmas hats and then we exchange them. By asking a series of yes or no questions, you work out who you are.

I managed to win a round with three questions, which were:

- Am I real?
- Am I female?
- Do I like guns?

By which I deduced I was my favourite mad Canadian ex-colleague. Admittedly, I got it because as soon as I asked the third question, one of my colleagues spit out his beer. Plus, somebody'd already used Sarah Palin.

Anyway, I've done the yearly roundup of first sentences from my public LJ entries of 2008. I do love the way August segues neatly into September. The bloke is a tricksy one.

  • January: I rang in the New Year by standing on Primrose Hill and watching the fireworks at the London Eye with a bottle of champagne in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

  • February: It's a matter of geometry.

  • March: Setting: This morning, me + 2 male students

  • April: I just heard from the police.

  • May: *photo of me with pipe arms* A blend of Holga images, part of my efforts to learn to use GIMP.

  • June: At coffee this afternoon, I spoke to one of the lecturers about his post-grad's talk earlier that day.

  • July: Raise a glass tonight, friends, to a faithful little spacecraft that's been whizzing around the Sun for over 17 years.

  • August: The bloke delights in seeing me squirm.

  • September: The bloke tricked me into describing bukkake over the phone by pretending he didn't know what it was.

  • October: Do you need some attention?

  • November: Dear Sarah Palin, I can't tell you how glad I am that you'll be putting the "alas" back in "Alaska", but not in the rest of the country.

  • December: I spent all of today at a school in Teddington doing outreach work.

It was so good that I almost want to try and do the same thing again. But that means it'll be unlikely to live up to my expectation so it's probably best to do something different.
