My year in review

Television does it. The newspapers do it. So why can't I? I'm going to recap some of the highlights of my year gleaned from a year of blogging. Now, I'm not saying these were the best of my blogs, just some of the highlights.

January, 5, 2005: A modest proposal

I wrote: "Tom Robbins once wrote, "It's never too late to have a happy childhood." And, it's never too late to find your soulmate. I proposed to mine on our Christmas cruise and she accepted. I consider myself a lucky person. We plan to get married this spring."

February 2, 2005: Raising the bar!

I announced to the world my new high score on Brickbreaker, the game on my Blackberry: "...last night on the bus ride home, I was in the zone, baby! My new high score is ...get this...7,050!"

April 3, 2005: Nice day for a Web wedding

Tess and I got married aboard the Diamond Princess at sea enroute to Mexico. The entire ceremony was Webcast. I wrote, "Okay, so the Webcast of our wedding lasted maybe nine minutes and looked like a surveillance tape from a 7-11. But you have to admit it was a unique idea. So what if my mother thought the candle sticks in the image were Tess. She got to see our wedding. "

The honeymoon in Mexico was a hoot.
