As seen at Blogography and Lost Pilgrim:

The idea is you put the first sentence of the first post of each month for 2004 and see what you end up with.

  • January: Had a very nothing day today.
  • February: My brain is starting to melt down at the moment, because all the things I need to get done are all dependant on each other, such that I don't know where to start.
  • March: Where did the last 24 hours go?
  • April: To appreciate this picture you really need to stand back a bit, so up you get, stand back as far away from your computer as possible.
  • May: Had a busy cleaning day today.
  • June: I finally had a dream about Jason Isaacs last night.
  • July: Didn't really know what I'd take a photo of this week.
  • August: Feeling very unmotivated and blah at the moment.
  • September: In case anyone missed me, I've been skiing for three days :)
  • October: Been a bit slack the last couple of weeks with the Thursday Challenge.
  • November: Firstly a welcome to all my lurkers.
  • December: The temperature in Sydney hit 41�C at the airport today, and my weather pixie put on a new outfit.

    heh, that was actually kinda fun :) Although I think my year looked fairly lethargic :)

  • Go PanaVue!

    Made panoramas of a stack of my USA pics today. Some of them turned out fantastically!

    Had the car towed to a servo this morning, so had to get the train and bus to work. Left work early after tidying up a bunch of loose ends. Picked up the lego (thanks Dave :) ) and some milk and came home. Also got my Jason fix with Event Horizon which was on the other night. All the reviews were right, it was pretty crap, and Jason's role wasn't that great - he didn't get to sneer or whisper menacingly very much .. :)

    If you don't hear from me within 24 hours, my parachute probably didn't open and they had to scrape me off the tarmac like a lump of strawberry jam.. ;)

    Thanks to Rooster who posted this. I read this 15-20 years ago and have been looking for it ever since. But I couldn't remember enough of the specifics of it to google it (I just remembered lots of ins and outs which are kinda hard to search for :) )

    Explanation of how to play Cricket

    You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

    Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes
    in and the next man goes in until he's out.

    When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been
    in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out.

    Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

    When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and
    when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.

    There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they
    decide when the men who are in are out.

    When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have
    been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not
    out, that is the end of the game!"
