Now, my 23rd post was a long long time ago (I can still remember how the music used to make me smile . . . now try getting that out of your head all day! Ha!). I started VV up back in 2003 when I had a really boring job with lots of downtime, and it didn't really get political in any meaningful way (if you can call anything I blog about meaningful) until 2004 or so. Nevertheless, the 23rd post's fifth sentances is this:
On the one hand, I feel that I am really getting along well with the people I work with, that we are all quirky and weird but hardworking individuals.
This is from back when the site functioned mainly as a place for me to vent about life after graduation, the travails of a girl making sense of the hoary and uncharted landscape of the so-called "real world."
This reminds me that Vestal Vespa will be celebrating its third anniversary in May. Weird. Three years is a long time for any relationship, but on the Web it's a geological eon.
When I look back at old posts, I realize how much living and learning I've done in those three years . . . growing from a fresh-faced graduate to a somewhat jaded, cynical 20something with a political axe to grind. It is an interesting study in personal growth, to say the least.
So here's who gets to do this next:
1: Blog brother/MST3K buddy Dex
2: Little Vespa
3: Allison, our buddy out in KC
4: Blog brother/small sum sugar daddy NTodd
5: Mustang Bobby
None of you have any obligation to reciprocate . . . I'm just following the rules.
And now, a short list:
THINGS YOU MAKE ME FEEL, ACCORDING TO SONG TITLES:
Like a natural woman
Like a whore
