No drawn out overview, no cutting of the cake and no 'My Ten Favourite Quips': Just an acknowledgement that this blog is one year old today.
In its first year, this blogging business never did fulfill its original mission statement of getting me to sharpen up words-wise, and propel me to actually getting my arse into gear to write something for the Socialist Standard - in fact the mention of politics has been conspicuous by its absence at times - but it has allowed me to indulge in, and share with you all, my excellent taste in good music, good films, good literature and good hyperbole.
It was also a contributory factor in my meeting a friend for life - yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm referring to you Kara - and for that alone, I'm glad I started this blog. Even if I am a little late with the promised blog review of that Le Tigre concert - apologies.
Here's to the next twelve months with more of the same and maybe, just maybe, the occasional mention of politics. I know I left my political mojo somewhere around here.
