photo friday: mmx in review

water lilySo here we are... at the last day of 2010...

Like last NYE, today has been incredibly hot... and I discovered at about 11pm last night that my evaporative cooler wasn't actually doing any evaporating because the fabric that turns on little rollers in the back wasn't turning.

Cue me at 9am this morning standing outside The Good Guys waiting to buy a new one... which I probably would have done with much less fuss had I not found one online that I liked and that they were supposed to have in stock... which they turned out not to have in stock... so I ended up getting my second choice, which though the temperature is still in the mid 30°C range, is holding up okay.

I also stopped off and bought a bucketload of fruit which I'll turn into fruit salad very shortly...

And learning from my previous mistakes, I changed my bedding first thing this morning so I didn't have to attempt it at 11pm while my bedroom was stinking hot.

It's a little strange that I actually remember last New Years Eve with such clarity... most of it anyway... although specifically I remember exactly where I was sitting and what I was doing as I started something that has had a serious effect on my life for the last year...

That's right... just after 5pm last NYE, I started my Twitter account!

I think my first tweet was in reply to former blogger Tom, but I can't tell at present as older tweets are offline... but it's definitely made a change in my life...

And you would think so, given that I've made 6489 tweets up to this point... that's nearly 18 tweets a day...

I've discovered a whole new group of online friends, started the #60mmo live tweeting phenomenon with Peteski and Twillyon (which actually skews the hell out of my tweets per day number), found that sometimes if you say something on Twitter people you never would have expected to reach answer you... and you end up maybe a little bit smarter (although possibly with a slightly smaller attention span).

So to any of my Tweeple, friends and followers who read this, thanks for this first year of tweeting... I wouldn't have missed it for anything.

In other general news for this year...

I spent the entire year working, I decided to not blog every single day, I travelled to both Sydney and Melbourne (and didn't get laid in either city), I bought a new teevee and entertainment system, my iPhone has pretty much been welded to my hand for the past twelve months and went a little crazy at both the Fringe and Cabaret Festivals...

And I don't appear to have done a single meme in the last twelve months... but luckily, my NYE tradition (see also 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) takes care of that...

The first line of the first blog post for each month...

2010 year of the tigerJanuary: Welcome to the new decade, and more specifically to 2010, the International Year of Biodiversity... or, if my walk this morning is any indication, the International Year of Hot Boys!

February: It's been a very trying day... mostly because I've been unable to concentrate on anything properly...

March: I have this sense of impending... well, not exactly doom... but I feel like the Universe needs to balance out my account, what with all the Fringe fun and the new teevee and everything... I'm guessing it's just rampant paranoia...

April: Since sets of pictures of hot guys in bunny/Easter related outfits are in short supply, today's Random Hotness is APlusK himself (and that's the first time I actually GOT that username), Ashton Kutcher...

May: I didn't intend to do either, but I gave my credit card a serious workout today, and I ate Lynx shower gel...

June: While I haven't actually read any of the reviews, general buzz for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hasn't been especially complimentary... but I didn't think it was as bad as all that.

July: Today's Random Hotness... a model, in his underwear, in the desert, holding onto a giant picture frame...

August: This trip to Melbourne is very different in a lot of ways to trips we've made before... we're much more focussed this time... we have actual plans rather than just wandering around wherever the wind and whim takes us.

September: Sometimes it amazes me how the perfect photo for a template sometimes falls right into my lap right before I'm about to change it.

October: This is another version of the artwork from the centre of last Saturday's montage... it was a great piece of art... with all the layers and the lighting that moved and changed...

November: Hey, guess what... I'm in Sydney!

December: The Summer 2010/11 yaniblog template comes courtesy of Sculpture by the Sea (unsurprisingly)... I mean, really, how many homosexuals can resist a bit of rainbow action now and again?

So that's it for 2010 pretty much... I wonder what next year will bring?
