My year in first lines

I found this first line meme at Letters From a Hill Farm. It suggests that taking the first line of the first post of each month of the year will make an interesting portrait of your blogging year. I don't know how interesting mine turned out to be, but draw your own conclusions:

Jan-- I have a low patience level, a high frustration level, and absolutely zero tolerance for other peoples' learning curves.

Feb-- January was a pretty good month for me reading-wise.

Mar-- I saw the Chunkster Challenge back in January but didn't get around to signing up until now, the day that sign-ups end.

Apr-- I think we have the plague.

May-- The first of the month always seems to hold such potential reading-wise.

Jun-- It was a bit of an odd week around here mail-wise.

Jul-- Giveaway day #3 has on offer our first novel: My Name Is Will: A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare by Jess Winfield.

Aug-- I just got home from vacation last night and thought I'd share some of my recent discoveries so as to save all of you from having to stumble across the truth yourselves.

Sept—I was skipping through my appallingly overloaded Google Reader when I had to stop short at a post by Tam at Bailey's and Books.

Oct-- On my travels through the blogging world, I find many books that pique my interest.

Nov-- I should start out this review by admitting that there is no style of writing I loathe more than stream of consciousness.

Dec-- This book has been on my shelves literally for years.

So what do you think this says about me?


  1. I think it shows you have a great sense of humor! I smiled several times as I read your first lines. I'll be spending more time here, Kristen!

  2. How fun! I really enjoyed reading this post, Kristen.


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
