A terribly trivial anniversary

I posted six episodes that day, an opening salvo to establish some of the themes of the blog. I mentioned my candidacy for President of the United States. I mentioned software and blimps. I told a story about an adventure on a previous visit to the Czech Republic, and I wondered whether using iBlog was really the way to go. (I’m still not sure, but 535 episodes and 4500 comments later, the thought of moving makes my head spin.) I posted a few more episodes in October, but November was a write-off, and things only went in fits and spurts until I decided to use the blog to chronicle my homeless tour. That’s when things started to gain traction.

Two years later, the title of this blog seems more appropriate than I ever could have imagined. It is a description not just of this blog, but of my life. I am a half-baked idea.

I’ll spare you further retrospectivosity until April 2th. Once a year is enough for that kind of thing.

  1. Congratulations!

    It sounds like Oct 17th should be MR&HBI Day. Of course, there is always the risk that it gets shortened to simply Muddled Day.

  2. I have renamed the holiday on the official MR&HBI calendar to reflect its new, excellent, name.

    You do know there’s a calendar, right? The link is in the holiday ticker section.

    Edited to add: Well, I’ve updated my version of the calendar. When I’m on a faster connection I’ll synchronize with the Web version.
