Blogiversary etc.

I forgot my own blogiversary. Two years! (well at this point it's two years and two days) The great thing about this (for me) is that I can go back and see what was happening one year ago, and now two years ago too! Sometimes I check back and think, "It seems like this was just a couple weeks ago." The older the mind, the faster time slips through it.

Both spouse and I came down with colds yesterday. And when I say came down with, I really mean slugged and pummeled by. Something else we brought back from New York I imagine.

You know how the universe likes to play jokes on people? Yeah, well, here I am snotty and feverish, coughing and moany, and today(TODAY) a reporter from the local TV station is coming to interview me about the strike. The transit strike is set to begin tomorrow. The essential services council has deemed that "rush hour" service will still be in effect. The problem with that is that I need to travel around town during the day to get to my classes. So I reserved a car. This strike will cost me 1% of my annual pay for each week it drags on. This infuriates me as I have to take a pay cut in order for these (well paid, don't let anyone fool you) guys to get a pay raise. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Finally, Mom sent an old photo of me as a 2 and a half year old. She claims this was her first inkling as to my eventual orientation. I can't imagine why, lol.

Couldn't have put it better myself, Sunshine! Happy 2nd blogiversary, tornwordo! I'm glad to have come across your blog. Keep up the good work, and I hope you and Serge are feeling much better soon. :)

Snoskred said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary ;) here's to many more!

Signalite said...

So it turns out at age two in both real life and blog life you are still as entertaining. Hope you feel better soon!

Lacey said...

Yeah, looking back, I realize that I really never needed to "come out". They'd have had to be deaf, dumb, and blind.

Love the tighty whities, BTW.

Lemuel said...

Not only the purse, but those sexy briefs!

Kevin said...

When I said I wanted more shots of you in your undies, this isn't what I had in mind.

Polt said...

Well at least your handbag matched your undies. :)

We had a comforter over the back of our sofa JUST LIKE THAT ONE when I was growing up. Weird, eh? :)

HUGS...

Happy Blogiversary!!! From Italy...

GayProf said...

A shirt, no pants, and a purse: Didn't I just run into you at a Boston club?

Actually, I am more surprised by how blond you appear in that picture.

I am also battling a cold, so I share your pain.

Happy Blogiversary (plus 2 days)!

Now we know where Tinky Winky got the idea.
You should submit a bill to the union and let the news people know about it. If the union is all about solidarity with working people, they should be willing to help you out when their strike negatively impacts your living standard.

Did you ever wonder what happened to that old knitted quilt on your couch. It's now laying over my couch. I will enjoy snuggling with it, imagining that your scent is still on it. You know, when you peed it.

Patricia said...

i'm going to go ahead and pretend that i know this pic was taken on a thursday. your very first hnt!

here's hoping the nasty cold leaves as abruptly as it arrived.

dirk.mancuso said...

Ever the trendsetter, Torn -- we now know you are the origin point of what we now know as the manbag.

Hope you are feeling better soon. There's never a good time for a cold, but summer colds are particularly awful.

So, you're going to be a tv star, eh? We all knew it was only a matter of time.

Kevin said...

Happy Blogiversary!

BTW - Ok, I can dig the tightie whities, but that purse does NOT match the outfit!

BTW #2 - Can we have maybe some updated pics in the tightie whities?

Snooze said...

I always get colds when I travel too. Congrats on the blogiversary - I can't believe how you manage to write so consistently and well.

Vila H. said...

Well, happy bloggiversary! So, what channel are you going to be on? :)

Rebekah said...

Now that's what I call cute.

Jess said...

Damn. How'd I miss a visit to NY?!

*sigh*

Oh well. Hope you feel better soon!

And happy blogiversary!

abnitude said...

Cooper said...

As I mentioned in a blog post, my 15 month old baby boy's favourite "toy" is an old purse he hauls around with him everywhere. Oh.

I, too, have been battling a cold/flu/icky flem thing but I think I'm winning. You and Spouse get better soon.

dawn said...

How cute are you with your little purse? I think I would have been more concerned with your lack of pants than your love of purses.

S. said...

I am back public btw...back at the old spot but under a new name!

Lewis said...

Congrats! Many happy futures in the blogosphere.
