Back to the Beginning

Fabulous Thinkgeek T-shirt

Back at the beginning of time when I started blogging…okay a few years ago, I had a blog on Blogspot. At least I think that’s where it was. If I ever manage to hunt up the files containing that information I’ll let you know.

Once that blog went the way of the Dodo, I started a blog over on LiveJournal. I thought that it might be fun to share with you some of my early blog posts. A blast from the past as it were. Look upon it as a sort of archaeological dig.

Then, I went and looked at the first two posts. Oy. Well…at least you might find them amusing in a “I’m bored at work” kind of way. Luckily the third one is a bit more interesting.

My first 2 posts on LiveJournal:

(Post 1) And so it begins

5:45 PM

Well, this is really a test. But, if anyone is interested, I will be at BayCon on Sunday.
So, look for me, and say “Hi”.

See what I mean? Very interesting stuff there. But the next one really places it in time for me.

(post 3) Grumble

2:42 AM

Yes, it really is 2:42 in the morning.
I can’t sleep. Well, to be more specific, I slept some from 7pm to midnight.
…and I just finally gave up and decided to get ready for BayCon.
It *is* a 2 and a half hour drive, after all.

Ok, so it seems these new birth control pills just don’t agree with me.
I’m pretty sure that they are causing the sleep problems…and the upset tummy.

Blah. Well, I’m never very chatty in these things, so I’ll just go back to my
copy of “Justice Hall” by Laurie R. King. Gotta love those books on tape.

How times change, eh? I’m a bit more chatty these days, I think. That was the very last time I tried to use Birth Control Pills. Historically they have never been easy on my system, but that new kind took the cake. I barely slept for a week. Not that I was tired, mind. Oh no. I was wide awake. But my body was none to pleased with all of the tomfoolery. I remember that I drove down to BayCon by myself, arriving very early, and sat around in a chair in the lobby until I could check into the hotel. I’d stopped taking the pills the previous day, so by the time I got my room I lay down upon the bed and slept like the dead for a while. Hmm…May 2003. A bit more eventful than I remembered.

Interesting what you can see through a window to the past. Even a past only a few years gone.

    Going back to the beginning is always interesting. Thanks to the Wayback Machine I was able to grab my posts from the time leading up to when I moved to Australia.

    Strange stuff.

    (birth control isn’t great for my system either)

    I love the Wayback machine. If only I knew what I called that ruddy blog! Le sigh. I distinctly remember the awkward conversation my mother and I had about birth control pills when I was in college. She had trouble with them, too.
