Even Diamonds Start As Coal

So, I generally eschew those memes and quizzes that pervade my flist because they show up three thousand times and aren't very interesting, BUT I finally found one that's really cool because it's interactive! Instead of telling me what sort of blood diamond I am, you get to put fake gifts in my fake stocking! It's way cheaper than actually buying me a Christmas present, you know?! So be nice to me, as you have been nice before (yes, I have noticed the nice things you people have been saying about me in anonymous love memes, thank you so much!).

Oh, and you know what? Since I'm posting one meme, I might as well post that one where you take the first sentences of your first posts from each month, right? Just for kicks:

January: Three episodes on Saturday.

February: Fight!

March: This Saturday, I'm flying out to the Bay Area for two weeks (March 4 - March 18) in order to learn the medical writing ropes and such so that I can better work remotely as I prepare to move in April, assuming I find a subletter.

April: I came up with a new band name today: Error 404 File Not Found.

May: On May 9, CW will stand for something entirely different: cloud_watchers.

June: There is a moment during "Chicago," by Sufjan Stevens, that I tear up whenever I sing along.

July: Just to shut you people up.

August: So my cousin is showing me the books she needs for English to see if I have any of them.

September: jadelynx is nuts.

October: Have you been to helpmeveronica.com, the very first Veronica Mars alternate-reality game (ARG), which took the Internet by storm, garnering multiple high-profile media mentions and hooking thousands of new viewers with its viral mayhem?

November: I've finally discovered the wonders of Pandora, and I'd like to share a few song addictions it has given me after discerning my particularly awesome musical tastes.

December: In 2003, I unexpectedly met my best friend.

And for those of you who have diligently been awaiting my BSG post, there won't be one. I didn't feel like it was worth writing about. (Sorry, Jane. Not your fault, maybe?) And I don't feel like ragging on the show when other people are still enjoying it. I think it's losing me again. If you want, you can relive my ragging on "Black Market," because it has a joke I really like.
