Today is PuddingTime’s two year anniversary. We started out by filing a brief review of a forgettable movie.
It’s sort of an odd anniversary to mark, since it’s not really my blogging anniversary. There had been assorted incarnations of what was going to be PuddingTime! spanning back to some time in 2000, and attempts at “time ordered personal writing on the Web” going back well before that, and well before puddingbowl.org existed as a domain. But it’s been under the PuddingTime! banner that I’ve done the most blogging, so I might as well observe the date.
I was going to try to find some favorite entries, and I spent a while going through the 900-something-something posts, when it occurred to me that I don’t have any favorites. I’ve mainly found myself wishing I’d written more in a few entries because I don’t remember what, exactly, I meant when I got all elliptical.
It was also entertaining to go through the entries and find out how much junk I’d bolted on in the form of buttons and gimcracks over the past few years: Amazon lookups, Netflix queue displayers, cutesy macros to make it easier to type things I don’t type more anyhow, etc. etc. etc. Most of that stuff is gone now, and good riddance. You get “On This Day,” and that’s it.
We now return you to more of the usual.
