It's my year

Happy Year of the Dog, everyone.

To celebrate, I've been sitting inside my house all day, with the aircon on. It's way too hot to go outside (39C). I did that yesterday, anyway. Twice. Although I might go for a swim later.

Anyway, as it's too hot to think, I'll just do a meme which has been floating around, that I found on the Editter's blog. Even though I wasn't tagged for it. You know how it is.

First line of first post for each month of the last year:

Today I'm moving house across town and flying half way around the world, so it seems like a good day to start a blog. The rapture: When all believers in Jesus Christ, who have been born again, are taken up to heaven. I was meaning to make this map when Violet posted it, but then forgot about it. I was talking the other day with a friend about the implications of living internationally - being someone whose work allows them to work in all kinds of places around the globe. So I just got an email from a friend of mine. Every now and again someone asks me what 4th of July is like in my country - do we have fireworks etc. Anyone here in the US watch Six Feet Under on Sunday? Went to Cape Cod - wonderful. I just got back last night from a week in Cali, Colombia. I made it to Australia. Isn't it funny how people you've never met can influence you?

I quite like it. I think it gives a rather good synopsis of my 2005. You can tell I travelled a lot, I have friends, I like Six Feet Under. Let's just ignore the sentence about the rapture, shall we?
